Quilt show a labour of love for local guild members Large collection of work shows variety of styles, techniques STAFF WRITER


IT’S A STITCH Prince Edward Quilter’s Guild member Bill Stearman works with his 1950s Singer sowing machine at this weekend’s bi-annual Quilt Show at the Essroc Arena. Over 300 quilts were on display to the public.

We

have a quilt donation program that sees us donate quilts to multiple causes such as Alternatives for Women, the dialysis unit at the hospital and the Loyalist Humane Society,” the cochair added. Famed featured artist and judge Beth Garner was one of two honoured guests at this past weekend's show (Patricia

Borecky being the other) and selected Reader-Day's modern quilt entry 'Not a double wedding ring'. Reader-Day had entered this work as part of the 2016 guild modern quilt challenge and the effort featured (if you looked closely) a lady leaning back on a rock, a frog, a turtle, a fox, an owl, a tree snake, a tree lizard

and other native motifs. “I was making a whole bunch of double wedding ring quilts for nieces that were getting married and this is the break I took,” Reader-Day said with a laugh. The quilt took between four and five months to create and used a polyester material as the base.

The clock ticked past 5 p.m. last Wednesday and the agony of waiting was over for the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists (PECFN). Neither the Gilead Power Corporation, the proponent of the nine-turbine industrial wind project planned for Ostrander Point, nor the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change that approved it in Dec. 2012 appealed a June 6 Environmental Review Tribunal (ERT) decision to ultimately revoke the permit to protect the natural environment. After legal appeals on both sides escalated the case to the Ontario Court of Appeal and ultimately returned it to the ERT, PECFN president Myrna Wood admitted there was some relief with the news. “I have to admit there was a little bit of unease as we reached the date, though I didn’t think they would appeal again as there were no grounds left to appeal.”

More than 300 works of fabric art were on display at the biennial Prince Edward County Quilt Show last weekend at the Wellington and District Community Centre. Whether you were a fan of the standard patterned bed quilt or were looking for a creation that escaped tradition, there was something for everyone's fancy at the Prince Edward Quilter's Guild's largest show ever. Guest artists, judged competitions, demonstrations by both guild members and vendors, an antique sewing machine display and quilts from the museums of Prince Edward County were just some of the highlights of the 2016 edition of the show that's so labour intensive it can only be held once every 24 months. But it is a labour of love according to show co-chair Janet Reader-Day. Every quilt hanging on the Essroc Arena floor was created by one of the over 70 members of the Guild and it takes time to make that perfect craft. “Because every quilt that's hung our members have created, we don't want the public coming in and seeing the same old quilt, so there is always something new at this show,” Reader-Day said. “It does take

MS Bike riders meet their $175,000 target for weekend tour through the county Annual event draws record number of entries as over 220 take part JASON PARKS STAFF WRITER

It's mission accomplished for the organizers of the local leg of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada MS Bike tour that took place in Prince Edward County last weekend. Over 220 cyclists took part in the nationwide fundraiser that has been running here for the past five summers and MS Society spokesperson Laura Hagglund confirmed between the online donations and on the course donations local efforts had met the $175,000 mark. “And there's still four weeks left in the local campaign in which funds can be raised so I'm pretty confident we are going to eclipse that mark,” Hagglund told the Gazette Tuesday. This years contingent of participating teams and indi-

viduals was the largest the local leg of the tour has ever seen and under sunny skies Sunday, most cylists if not every one had smiles on their faces as they made their way around either the 40 km or 75 km circuits that originated in Picton and went as far north as Big Island. “It was a beautiful weekend and we're thrilled with the number of bikers and the support,” Hagglund added. The funding raised will go toward research as well as programs and services offered by the MS Society. Hagglund explained the cause and cure of MS is still the group's primary mission. “Our biggest focus remains on research and finding a cause and cure for MS,” Hagglund said. “We also have our support and services for those affected by the disease and some of the money raised this weekend will go towards

that.” Education programs like MS 101 for those newly diagnosed, support groups for MS care givers and even Yoga for MS patients are some of these efforts. Only those with the dreaded disease that has the highest rate of occurrence in Canadians when compared to the rest of the world can explain what MS feels like and what it does to the human body. Some can live relatively normal lives and if you are one of the those 100,000 Canadians that fit that profile, you can be considered lucky. Some of those were on the course Sunday including Kingston resident and MS survivor Tania Granger. Granger was leading a six cyclist team called Tania's Titans. The group has supported their friend and family member a number of times at the MS BIKE tour, having participated in rides in Kingston and Cornwall. When asked how they felt

having any of that talk Sunday. “You feel great and how can you not feel good when you see so many people out in support of the MS Society,” Granger said. Hagglund said those survivors,whether they can participate or simply spend a few moments cheering as riders went by. were inspirational to everyone involved in Sunday's event. It's very inspiring and it's awesome to see them out there because that's why we ride...because of these people and to help them.

In total in the half decade the event has been run locally it has raised over $800,000 and with this last event being the most successful so far, Hagglund confirmed what should be a slam dunk decision by organizers. “We will definitely be continuing the MS Bike tour in Prince Edward County next year,” she said. Valerie Hussey was the top overall fundraiser for the Prince Edward County leg ($16,521) while her team, County Riders, was the leading squad generating $32,555.

Visiting MPP Scott says 90 per cent of victims are Canadian girls as she rallies support to give police more resources to fight growing crime

Ontario’s 401 corridor considered hub for human trafficking ADAM BRAMBURGER STAFF WRITER

Human trafficking is not just a third-world problem or an urban problem. In fact, Prince Edward County is located a short drive from an area quickly becoming known to law enforcement as a major crime hub. On Monday, Ontario PC women's issues critic Laurie Scott was at Prince EdwardHastings MPP Todd Smith's Belleville office to talk about a disturbing trend growing in popularity along the 401 corridor. "It's the recruitment, transportation, harbouring, and control of a person for sexual exploitation and/or slavery," Scott said. "Most people when you say that think these are girls from another country… the reality is 90 per cent are Canadian born. These are the girls in our communities." Scott, the MPP for Hailburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock, said targeted victims are usually teenagers and young adults and primarily women, though some men have also been lured into the sex trade. Statistically, she said their average age has been 14 and in Durham Region an 11-yearold girl was rescued. There, she said, there has been a case reported in every high school. Trafficking has become a crime of choice because it's hard to detect and because it is

lucrative. "The average girl makes a trafficker or pimp $250,000 a year. This is why it's one of the largest growing crimes in Ontario," Scott said. "This is why we can not sit idly by and let this horrifying thing happen." Scott has been touring the

province advocating for changes to the way Ontario combats human trafficking. She made a motion calling on the province to set up a special task force of law enforcement and social services agencies to provide training and increase communications about the issue, following a similar

model the province adopted to deal with guns and gang violence in 2005. Through a private member's bill, the "Save The Girl Next Door Act" Scott has also called for systemic changes that will help the legal system fight the crime. They include allowing parents and child protection agencies to file for protection orders to keep victims away from their pimps; specially trained police officers, Crown attorneys, and judges to expedite justice and help recognize warning signs, changes to the sex offender registry to include traffickers; and programs to better educate the public about the issue. At present, Scott said her initiatives have passed through second reading in the legislature with unanimous support, but thus far, have not been to committee and no further action has been taken. Although the government recently committed $72 million over four years to fight human trafficking, Scott said few details have been provided and her worry is the money may not reach the front lines. Following a roundtable discussion on the issue, Smith and Scott held a press briefing with Belleville police chief Cory MacKay and deputy-chief Ron Gignac, and Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte and District Kim Charlebois to try to alert the public about this crime and

its effects on its victims. Scott said she has heard about would-be pimps loitering outside of schools, at parties, or near group homes looking for vulnerable girls they can lure. Often referred to as "Romeo pimps" or "boyfriend pimps" they'll find a way to comfort the girls and promise a better life, possibly in a different town. MacKay said the crime has exploded in recent years, in large part, due to social media and the Internet. "Every young girl in our community has difficulties in life. You passed a test, you failed a test, you got in trouble with your parents, something happened at school — social media changes the world. We see a lot of our youth putting a lot of that on the Internet," she said. "These individuals are very good at finding individuals who are vulnerable and

Cou The

they can help you very easily." The luring can happen very quickly once trust is gained. Often, the young victims are lured willingly and within a matter of days or weeks, they can be addicted to drugs and moved away from home. Eventually, there's usually a suggestion the victim needs to contribute financially to the dream life promised. Those who try to get out are often threatened with violence or blackmail. With so few people trained to know the signs of human trafficking, it can be difficult to help. Often, MacKay said, by the time police are alerted or by the time anyone raises suspicion, the pimp and victim have moved to another community. The 401 works because there are so many people so close to the highway.

Kevin & Tina Shogren are proud to announce the engagement of their youngest daughter Chelsea Lynn Shogren to Brandon Ross Peter Cawker, son of Ralph & Sandra Cawker of Oakville, ON.  The momentous event took place in Gravenhurst, Ontario on beautiful Lake Muskoka.   The nuptials will take place in the summer of 2017.

mark the event, Sandbanks is offering a wide range of events from Friday, July 15 to Sunday, July 17. In the 15 years since the winery opened it has become extremely successful with the brand featured predominantly on LCBO shelves across the region. Owner Catherine Langlois said it's tough to believe it's already been 15 years in Prince Edward County. “Time flies if you love what you're doing,� she said with a laugh. Langlois said every day she's surprised by how much the local wine industry has grown. It's something she says she never imagined happening when purchasing the rocky piece of land overlooking Lake Ontario those years ago. “It was a very different setting back then for sure,� she said. When asked about her favourite memories of the last 15 years of winemaking, Langlois scarcely hesitates before indicating it's her connection with youth that brings fond thoughts. “One of my favourite things to do is work with youth here in the sense that we have a lot of young men and women who come work with us,� she said. “In the first few weeks or the first season they might be a bit more shy or introverted or not as confident and as they evolve and get to work in the tasting room or work with us in the back or in the vineyard, they really flourish.� She said visitors from across Canada and elsewhere will often show a reverence for the local culture and attractions and that can have a positive effect on local youth and how they feel about their home. “I think it instills a certain pride in their region because if you've lived here all you life, sometimes (you might not appreciate it),� she said.

She said a lot of good memories have come from watching those experiences unfold. Langlois said she's grateful to be in Prince Edward County. She said there has always been someone available to lend a hand, whether it was the farmer loaning a wagon when it was needed, or the babysitters looking after the kids while mom and dad were in the field. “This has been an amazing community and I can't believe how well they've supported us in very different ways, in very different aspects,� she said. “It's been a fabulous journey for sure.� Langlois said there's a lot planned for the celebration weekend, including barrel tastings and some tastings of the winery's older vintages. “It's interesting for people — especially when we do barrel tastings — to see some of the wines that are in the making, some of the wines we've just bottled,� she said. “We're also opening some of our older vintages, so tasting how those wines age. Usually we buy a bottle of wine and enjoy it that evening, so it's interesting to see the process.� Event organizer Sara Coltman said there will be something special available for those who attend the celebration. “We have a couple of new

wines that we're releasing that are going to be special edition wines just for the 15-year anniversary,� Coltman said. “They're limited release and will only be sold here at the winery.� On Friday from 4–7 p.m. the Sandbanks winemaking team will be leading behind the scenes tours of where it all began in 2001. The winery will be opening some older vintages from its library along with barrel tastings and pairings. Live music and a bonfire are also planned. “We're actually going to open up the old store that we used to sell the wine out of in the basement of the home and make it part of the tour,� Coltman said. On Saturday wine tours will again be running all day. Visitors will also have an opportunity to try some complimentary tastings of older vintages. Local food trucks will be on site and there will be live music from 1–4 p.m. On Sunday, it'll be yoga and breakfast at Sandbanks. Langlois will teach a yoga class in the vineyard at 10 a.m. and local food truck Vintage Pizza Pie will be on hand to serve breakfast pizzas from 10:30–12 p.m. Langlois thanked the community for all their support and encouraged all to visit the winery this weekend.

Curling club’s antique show revived after hiatus Dealer says retro items, ‘guy stuff’ is selling well now JASON PARKS STAFF WRITER

What was old was born new again at the 51st Prince Edward Curling Club Antique Show and Sale this weekend. After a one-year hiatus, the show was back in 2016 thanks to veteran dealer and show organizer Kevin Bazkur and that was good news for local antique seekers who packed the club this past weekend. For three days, hundreds filed through the rink searching for those rare and one-ofa-kind items, collectibles or obscure pieces that took attendees back to childhood. Bazkur confirmed he took over the organization of the popular sale as the task got to be too much for the curling club itself. A dealer for 11 years, Bazkur said there is always an item or two at any show to tickle even the hardest-toshop-for individual's fancy. “There's always something that's interesting and unique at every show. Here we have some wonderful art deco pieces, sports collectibles and memorabilia and we have a lot of fun retro items,” Bazkur told the Gazette Friday afternoon as a steady stream of satisfied customers wandered by. One of the hotter items on the market currently is retro lawn sprinklers from the 1950s and that was one of the first items sold Friday. Bazkur explained there


THE ANTIQUES YOU’RE LOOKING FOR There was something for every shopper at the 51st

was an ebb and flow to what's popular in the antique and retro market. Currently, porcelain and china items have cooled because of their availability while retro or “guy stuff” is selling well. Soda signs, sports cards, fishing rods and vintage tackle seem to be the 'in' items these days. “There's always a steady base and there are people seeking different items but now with the television shows about picking and collecting, you've got new people inspired to come into the market and they are bringing in retro and vintage items so it's interesting times,” Bazkur said. Antique furniture that is large in scale can be a tough

sell currently in a society that seems to be be focussed on downsizing but that means smaller items such as vintage stands, small desks and chairs and smaller coffee tables are moving well. Staying profitable means staying ahead of the curve when it comes to inventory and anticipating what's going to be hot. “Every dealer wishes we had that crystal ball-which is probably have for sale here by the way — if we knew what exactly was going to be hot in six months time, we'd try to buy all of it,” Bazkur said, adding the more different and odd items are what generally sells first at an antique show. There couldn't have been anything more odd or strange

than what was perched at John Neville's table. Body cavity fluid bottles, some dating back to the 1880s, casket keys and a vintage funeral directors kit were part of a broader display that had some of the more standard antique show faire. “I honestly don't know what the attraction is to these items for customers,” Neville said. “My attraction was that I always wanted to be a funeral director, so I had an interest in it.” Neville said there seems to a be a good market in vintage funeral goods and the collectors tend to be individuals that work in the end-of-life industry.

COMMENTARY Practice of playing anthems at sporting events has lost significance

THE tradition of playing or singing the national anthem regularly before professional, collegiate, and high-end amateur sporting competitions in North America dates back to the Second World War. It is a habit built on patriotism, reverence, and respect for the countries we live in and those who sacrificed to establish the high ideals for which they stand. Regrettably, it is also a practice that should be curtailed or limited moving forward. In many modern performances, the practice has lost some of the decorum and honour which it once represented. Artists, often celebrities, are invited to sing and many appear more interested in putting their own personal touches on these sacred songs. Some have drastically changed the melody of the songs in doing so. Others have dishonourably forgotten or butchered the words. Then, there are those like The Tenors’ Remigio Pereira, who inserted his own lyrics into O Canada at Tuesday’s Major League Baseball all-star game in San Diego to reflect an All Lives Matter political theme. Whether Pereira’s intent was correct in the wake of a turbulent weekend south of the border following killings at Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas does not matter. The opportunity to perform a national anthem should be an honour and that anthem should stand on its own. Surely, a singer popular enough to gain that opportunity would have other platforms to share his messaging via social media, signage when he wasn’t singing, and other public appearances to come. That incident is a particularly egregious breach, to be sure, but the disrespect of national anthems and what they stand for goes far beyond that example. Whereas in past generations everyone in a sports stadium might have stopped what they were doing to stand at attention as anthems

played, that simply isn’t happening any more. In Major League Baseball parks on both sides of the border in the past year, people have been observed walking through the corridor to find their seats, remaining seated to finish their meals, and scrolling through their cellphones. Fans of some teams, like the NHL’s Dallas Stars, have even taken to doing team cheers during the anthem. When the singer vocalizes the word “stars” in the Star Spangled Banner, they inappropriately cheer louder. The irreverence doesn’t stop at the fans, either. A few years back, the Ontario Hockey Association had to institute a new rule to keep players from skating and yelling during the song. Even this spring, basketball star Dwyane Wade drew ire for shooting balls during the Canadian national anthem during a playoff series against the Toronto Raptors. It has become apparent that a tradition meant to be about honour and respect is actually having the opposite impact in the sporting world. One also notices that in other public gathering places, like dramatic performances, most church services, and political proceedings, there is no convention to sing the anthem. Most professional athletes have also grown up playing their games without the tribute. It’s time to move on and save the anthems for significant occasions when their use will elicit the appropriate impact. That is a sad fact to accept for those patriotic Canadians and Americans who still respect their anthems and stand and sing proudly, but the current practice seems much too far from the intent to simply reverse. A true sign of respect must come from a willingness of people to pay homage, not merely a sense of obligation and rote repetition.


Stories From Our Past n Conservative prime minister Arthur Meighen began campaigning toward a federal election in September. Meighen’s platform consisted of public service reform, protective tariffs and encouragement of immigration. n Canning factories throughout Prince Edward County were busy with a productive pea crop. The Bonter and Hempstead factories were running shifts through the nights to process the harvest. n Syracuse, N.Y. man Leo Yott was shot dead by U.S. Coast Guard near Oswego, N.Y. while smuggling 9,600 bottles of Canadian ale in from Deseronto.


n Some 500 baseball fans were on hand in Milford as the overhead lights at the South Marysburgh recreation centre were lit for the first time. The crowd stayed to watch the local team tie Bloomfield 5-5. n Ontario Hydro Commission staff visited Picton to look for a site for a new sub-station to be built near the town. The preferred site was to be southwest of the Picton Collegiate, but the land had not been purchased so no announcement was made. n East Lake residents set up a fund to help Everett Lancaster replace the barn he lost to fire during a lightning storm. The fund was expected to raise $500.

Consecon branch prepares for upcoming Community Day fun

Ready...set...go! The crown of Consecon’s annual Community Day on Saturday, July 30 is none-other than the amazing soap box derby. If you’d like to take part in the sixth annual event, there’s still time to build your own soap box car, or, if you lack the time or skills, derby cars can be borrowed on site at the event. To learn more or register, wheel on over to the events section on or contact Nick Nowitski at (613) 965-1878 or for all the details. The famous soap box derby is not all that’s happening though – the entire community is pitching in and taking part in the seventh annual Consecon Community Day, including the County Library. Starting promptly at 10 a.m., the Friends of the Consecon and Ameliasburgh branches will host their muchanticipated annual book sale. All funds raised at this sale will directly benefit the Consecon and Ameliasburgh branches. If you have books in good condition that you’ve been meaning to donate, drop them off at the Consecon branch during open hours before the sale. Our Consecon branch has a few special Community Day events planned for kids and teens. At 10:30 a.m. children are invited to join us to craft beanbags as well as a derby car beanbag target. Once that is up and running at 11:15 a.m, we


will tell some stories and sing some songs that will bring this year’s TD Summer Reading Club wild theme to life. Older kids and teens can look forward to using our awesome 3D printed bubble station. If you’ve been by the Consecon branch lately, you’ve likely noticed the new flower box – we owe a huge thank you to the Prince Edward County Horticultural Society,, Howard Hunter and Anne Reeves. I’d also like to extend our sincere thanks to Bev and Gary Marr, Ted McDonald, Gerry and Pearl Vandergraaf, as well as Roberta and Ted Cullen, for not only building the flowerbed, but also getting their hands dirty and planting many lovely flowers! This spring, our branch took part in the annual Banner Painting Festival, a great community initiative started by Janet Battaglio of Janet B Gallery and Studios

and the Consecon and Area Ratepayers Association) (CARA) that is an important part of the Consecon beautification project. The next time you’re in the area, be sure to keep your eyes open for our brand new reading heron! Our banner was painted by library staffer Liz Zylstra with help from the very talented Battaglio. In the coming weeks, plans are in the works at the Ameliasburgh branch for our first day of musical lessons at the library. On Saturday, Aug. 27 people of all ages are invited to learn to play music at the branch. Some of musical instrument lending library instruments from Milford will be on hand at the Ameliasburgh branch and library staffer Aaron Nash will organize lessons for anyone who’d like to try out a ukulele, bass guitar, drums, or guitar. If you’re interested in lending a hand or taking a lesson, please contact Nash at We are also excited to have local actor and instructor Rick Zimmerman visiting Ameliasburgh Saturday, Aug. 20 at 11 a.m. Zimmerman is well-known as a creative and hilarious actor as well as a talented drama teacher. Rick will read a few stories and tell some fascinating tales. Because summer goes by quickly, we’re already

Dog park user concerned about barrier, removal of trash bins

In the fall of 2011, Prince Edward County celebrated the opening of its very own fully fenced "off-leash" dog park. The Prince Edward Dog Park, located in Picton's Delhi Park, has seen a significant growth in popularity over its six short years of operation — both from our four-legged friends as well as an evergrowing number of county residents and tourists. Almost daily, we receive positive comments from first-time visitors regarding the park's size and its overall cleanliness. "This is a really nice dog park. I only wish we had something like this back home" is a phrase we frequently hear. Maintaining our commu-

nity dog park in such a manner doesn't just magically happen. It relies on the work of a dedicated group of regular dog park volunteers who spend part of each day ensuring our park is kept clean and tidy. They perform a series of daily chores ranging from general pet cleanup, a grounds-wide pickup of any garbage that may have been left behind, and even as required maintenance of the gates and fencing that surround the park. As an almost daily user of our dog park, I'm quite troubled to see two ongoing challenges the park continues to experience. For starters, over the past five summers, the dog park has enjoyed the

ongoing support of a local county water company that donates water to the park on an as-needed basis — especially during those hot days of summer when fresh water is a mandatory requirement for the health and well being of the dogs. Unfortunately, and just at the time of the year when fresh water is most urgently needed, the dog park is unable to replenish its water supply because of a large cement barrier that the County has installed in the middle of the roadway, preventing the water truck from making its much-needed delivery. Requests by park users to have the barrier removed as soon as possible

have, to date, run into ongoing delays with no immediate action forthcoming. My second concern is that, a number of months ago, the County elected to remove all of the trash bins from inside the dog park and relocate them quite a distance away (in front of the previously mentioned cement barrier). As a result of that action, most visitors to the dog park are unaware of the current trash bin location. With no trash bins in sight, we've noticed a significant increase in the number of doggie waste bags left either in the park or on the ground and the park gate exit. Arguably, yet another health and safety concern — partic-

ularly in the heat of summer. The Prince Edward Dog Park is a terrific place to let your dog run and exercise. We're indeed fortunate to have it right here in our community. That said, the two issues I've raised need to be rectified, and sooner rather than later. I would invite the responsible parties at Shire Hall to come to the dog park any morning and meet with the user community to discuss appropriate solutions. Working together, I'm sure we can quickly resolve both issues and make our dog park a place we can all be proud of again. Gay Halpenny Picton

Port development considered ill-conceived blight on the county

With regard to the Picton Terminals proposal, it is unbelievable that our mayor, our councillors and Ben Doornekamp are in support of this blight on the county and feel that it will have a beneficial effect on the residents of the county. Living on County Rd.49 has become very unpleasant because of the noise and hazards of the speeding 18-wheelers which has increased drastically since the port began operations.

The highway is being pummeled to death by the trucks and the large chunks of loose concrete are a daily hazard on that road. At least our mayor acknowledges the fact that County Rd.49 is in a poor state. How observant of him. Do he and our councillors really believe that a huge increase in heavy truck traffic will be an asset to the county ? More importantly, there has been no environmental

impact study completed for the Picton Terminals port development. That is what I was told by the folks at Quinte Conservation recently. We are all aware of the risk of contamination due to ballast water being dumped from large vessels. If indeed there are to be up to 100 large vessels in and out of the port per year, as suggested by Doornekamp, it is inevitable that a spill will occur. Is Picton

Terminals prepared for, and capable of, containing a spill of any kind? Are we, the taxpayers, going to be hit with the costs of cleaning up the mess resulting from the grandiose plans of a Port Picton ? Ask yourself, what is this doing to make a better county for us to live in ? By Doornekamp’s own admission, the automated facility will not generate many jobs.

The County may have to purchase a small fleet of pick-up trucks and employ dozens to patrol County Rd. 49 and continue to apply those nasty little patches of asphalt so that the 18-wheelers can continue to bring nothing positive to the county. Call you councillors, call the mayor, and voice your concerns of this ill-conceived development. David G Edward

Wood believes decision will have impact on White Pines, other tribunals across Ontario CONCLUSION, from page 1

She said there were no legal errors in the process which led the ERT to conclude no mitigation was adequate to prevent the serious and irreversible harm caused to the Blanding’s turtle population. Wood said PECFN members often wondered if there

would ever be an end to their fight, which started long before the permit was issued, however they never wavered from their position. “We always knew that we were right and we couldn’t see how we could not win in the end,” she said. Wood credited members and community partners for

gathering information for legal counsel Eric Gillespie to build his case. She also said the community offered great moral support throughout. “That was what helped us to keep this going all this time,” Wood said. Beyond just preventing the nine industrial wind turbines from going up on Crown land

the same site. That appeal tribunal will have to give it attention,” she said. “I also hope this informs other tribunals across the province about the importance of these environmental issues and the fact they cannot be pushed aside because everyone thinks renewable energy is a good thing — renewable energy isn’t going

at Ostrander Point, Wood said she believes the finality of the victory will also help in other cases, including the Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County-led appeal of the neighbouring 27-turbine White Pines Wind Project. “I do think it is going to have some effect on White Pines. It’s the same species and

to help us or be green if projects destroy habitats.” Wood said she was pleased the tribual panelists really paid attention to the issues and to the information they gathered from expert witnesses during both stages of the hearing. That said, she doesn’t believe the process is perfect. “I don’t think it’s fair that companies can come out with new evidence after the tribunal has made its decision,” she said. “That’s what had us going to one court after another. The companies should have to produce all the information, including th remedies at the first hearing.” While its own battle may be over, Wood said PECFN will continue to raise money to support the fight over White Pines, which is also set to hear evidence on remedy. The four final hearing dates are expected to be announced once the parties submit evidence as instructed by July 29. When asked whether the organization still had money to raise to pay for its success, Wood indicated that still is a concern moving forward. “I know we haven’t been able to pay Eric anything close to what the other side has been paying,” she said. Wood said now that appeals have been exhausted PECFN can examine the possibility of arguing for its costs to be paid by the government or by the project’s proponent. She indicated as the Ostrander Point and White Pines appeals deal with the same species and site and many local groups pooled resources, any such move may be studied as a collective. With the 30-day judicial appeal period closed, there is still a chance environment minister Glenn Murray could act on the file, but he has stated in the past he respects the Environmental Bill of Rights process PECFN followed. Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Todd Smith said Ostrander Point has been one of his priorities since taking office in 2011 and he was pleased to hear the window for judicial appeals had closed. “Obviously, I’m really pleased. Full credit to (PECFN) and to all the other groups in Prince Edward County for the fight they put up over many years,” he said. “It’s great to see Gilead has finally put up the white flag and gone away. I hope the ERT sees there is no way to mitigate the harm on the south shore of Prince Edward County and the same thing will happen with the wpd project.”

Province, doctors agree to tentative four-year deal, pledge to work together on system

It appears better days may be ahead after a prolonged period of acrimony between the province and its doctors. More than two years after the doctors’ last agreement expired, the government and the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) announced Monday a tentative deal is in place. The OMA board, which represents 34,000 physicians and medical students, gave its blessing to the argument, though it will still need to be ratified by the membership. Details will be shared with doctors beginning this week and the vote for final approval will come Aug. 6.

In a press release issued Monday, health minister Dr. Eric Hoskins said he was pleased with the agreement. “Physicians play a crucial role in the lives of patients and I know how hard they work to deliver the highest quality of care to their patients every day,” he said. “This agreement will strengthen the long-term sustainability of our health-care system while taking new steps to boost access, quality, and timeliness of care.” OMA president Dr. Virginia Walley said the agreement is the result of much discussion and it is intended to give doctors and assurance they can do

what they do best — care for their patients — without fear of unilateral government action. “It means that physicians and the government can once again work together on important system changes that will entrench stability, predictability, and sustainability for patients, physicians, and government now and in the years to come.” According to the release, the four-year deal with see annual increases to the province’s physician services budget which correspond to the costs of aging society, population growth, and augmenting the supply of doctors in the province. In the latter case,

the deal will provide funding that allows for the addition of new physicians annually. Through the tentative deal, the two sides have also committed to work together to ensure that every Ontario resident that wants a primary care doctor will receive one and a commitment to improve access to primary care, including the provision of same-day or next-day visits for urgent conditions. Primary care coverage on evenings, weekends, and holidays will also be a consideration. The doctors will also be included in co-management

of the physician services budget and have input into areas of potential savings, updated fee codes, and technological advancement. To assist in those pursuits, the deal calls for a permanent facilitator with health experience to be appointed jointly by the ministry and the OMA. That person will be used to provide a binding resolution in certain disputes. The exact terms of the funding have not been made public. Though some details may leak out, the sides have promised to release the full document following the ratification vote next month. Mon-

day’s release did suggest however that the investments in health care outlined in the agreement “is within the government’s fiscal plan.” Ultimately, the deal appears to set the structure for further discussion on contentious issues like capping billings and changing fee structures for various procedures down the road. Also of note, the OMA indicated it still intends to continue with a Charter challenge calling for binding arbitration with the government. -Adam Bramburger, Staff

Music At Port Milford students to bring instruments to Main Street Saturday CHAD IBBOTSON STAFF WRITER

Be on the lookout for some talented young musicians this weekend. Music At Port Milford, in its 30th year in Prince Edward County, will again be spreading awareness of the summer camp for promising string musicians with Music at Port Milford Takes to the Streets. The event takes place on Saturday, July 16 from 10–12 p.m. MPM Takes to the Streets has been a feature of the summer music school for about the last five years and will see 12–13 ensembles rotate through performances at locations in Picton and Wellington. Locations include Books

& Company in Picton, the Picton Library, and Main Street in Wellington. Music at Port Milford artistic director Meg Hill said the event is the chamber music camp's way of sharing what they do with the community. She said when Music At Port Milford Takes to the Streets began, there were still a lot of people who didn't know much about the camp. “We pull talent from really quite a large range — we have someone coming from Mexico this year and lots of people from the States — and we wanted to make sure we were sharing it,” she said. The free event gives residents a chance to enjoy some classical music as they walk

through town. “Each location will rotate through four ensembles,” said Hill. “You can sit and listen for 20 or 25 minutes and then go to the next location.” Also this Saturday, Music at Port Milford will present it's first in a series of four faculty concerts. Saturday's concert will take place at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Picton at 7:30 p.m. and will feature 2016 Juno Award-winning ensemble the Afiara Quartet. The performance will be based on the award-winning recording. Music at Port Milford has been actively working to strengthen connections between the community and the camp. The new Choral

Day Camp, which began July 11 and closes July 17, allowed county elementary students to learn and read music alongside the camp's high-calibre faculty. For $20, the camp allowed local music students to meet Monday to Friday from 9–12 p.m. at Bloomfield Town Hall where they participated in workshops and prepared choir material. No auditions were required for the program. “We're trying to make it completely accessible,” Hill said. On Saturday the elementary students will meet and rehearse with the full-time Music at Port Milford students. This Sunday, July 17, the day camp will culminate

with a matinee performance at the Music at Port Milford farm in Milford. Hill said it's all about getting the camp's work out there. She said because Music at Port Milford is predominantly a strings program and there isn't a large base of young strings players in the county, the choral camp was thought of as a way to reach out. “This is our 30th year and we want to, as much as possible, make some of what we do accessible to the local students that are interested in music.” The program is being led by former PECI music teacher and Music at Port Milford board chair Greg Garrett and his daughter Naomi, who has a degree in music education

from McGill University and is also a music instructor. The program is being supported by the County Community Foundation. Additionally, Music at Port Milford will be featuring its second pops concert in the last 30 years this month. On July 29 at 7:30 p.m. the Regent Theatre will feature Classic Rock with the Music at Port Milford Orchestra. “This will be a blast,” said Hill. “The kids are going to accompany a rock band and we're bringing in brass players — it's going to be a fun night.” Hill said that concert will be very different from the camps regular focus, but will entice a wider audience.

PICTON GAZETTE Toronto blues band Dorval comes to county for two shows this Saturday

Picton will have the blues this weekend. Young Toronto blues band Dorval will be bring their heavy sound to Coach's Pub and Grill in Picton on Saturday, July 16 between 8–11 p.m. The session will be the up and coming two-piece band's final show of their first tour. There will be no charge at the door and the band will be playing original music as well as a selection of cover songs. While the two-piece band describes themselves as “just too blues to call ourselves rock 'n' roll,” the duo have been inspired by some genuine rockers like Neil Young and the Tragically Hip. The has also been influenced by the music of The Two Times, Black Pistol Fire, Whitehorse, and Little Walter. Dorval was founded in

2014 by lead singer and guitarist Daniel Lewycky. Lewycky says he simply wanted to make more of the music he likes to listen to. Percussionist Adam Moffat joined to play drums for a show on New Year's Eve later that year, and became half of the band, cowriting and producing the three singles Dorval has released so far, as well as an upcoming EP the band plans to release at the end of 2016. Dorval recently played at the Foxx Lounge Rock Bar and Hotdoggery in Barrie with fellow blues band Catl. and shows at the Hart House in the University of Toronto, with Catl. And The Machenzie Blues Band, at the Silver Dollar Room in Toronto and most recently at the Bovine Sex Club, also in Toronto. Dorval's songs have been featured

on college radio across Canada and internationally. The pair are looking forward to their county shows. “Coach’s will be the perfect way to end our weekend

tour,” said Moffat. “Between a huge show at Lee’s Palace on Thursday night, and a fun set at 66 Gilead Distillery in Wellington on Saturday afternoon, the one I’m looking for-

ward to most is playing out Coach’s Saturday night.” Lewycky said playing outside of the GTA is a significant step for the band. “Playing the blues so far from home is so exciting — performing in the County is

huge for Dorval,” he said. “It’ll expose a whole new group of people to our music, and I think it’ll really help our evolution as a band.” -Chad Ibbotson, Staff

Real estate broker serves buyers only July Jetta Jamboree ALL INSTOCK JETTAS ARE ON SALE

Personal choice led Hull to unexplored business model ADAM BRAMBURGER STAFF WRITER

Treat Hull may be the only real estate agent in the province who doesn't care about getting listings. As he worked toward his broker's licence during the past year, Hull contemplated his chosen career and decided he'd try to alter his business model to one that only serves buyers. "It wasn't a complicated business strategy, it was a personal ethical preference," Hull said. "When selling real estate before, I was personally uncomfortable when I was representing the buyer and the seller at the same time — it is completely legal, but for my money it's a conflict of interest." Hull recalled a situation where he was representing buyers looking to move to Prince Edward County. He showed them a number of properties, but in the end, the home they wanted was one of his listings. Under the province's multiple representation laws, Hull could represent both parties in the deal, but he couldn't advise either. He felt his hands were tied to do the best job for his clients. "They were extremely uncomfortable," he recalled. "It was too late to switch horses. In theory, they could have fired me. In practice, they couldn't. There were other people interested in the property, too. I went forward. They were profoundly uncomfortable, and to be honest, so was I." The multiple representation laws apply not just to realtors, but to entire brokerages, so if one agency has two different agents on opposite ends of a real estate transaction, they're still limited to what they're able to offer in terms of advice. In Toronto, where there are tens of thousands of realtors, it isn't a huge concern, Hull says. Here in the county, however, he said an average of 40 per cent of all transactions fall under the multiple representation category. Determined to go into business himself in February after completing his broker examination, Hull decided he'd take a risk and try to be exclusive to buyers. Thus far, he said he's found some traction, particularly among repeat home buyers. Some, he said, might have felt their interests were compromised in a past deal, while others might just be looking for a different type of service. "In hindsight, it has turned out to be an excellent business decision," he said. "There is a much larger market need than what I set out to serve. Though it was a personal preference, it turns out there is a sizeable market of people who would prefer to be represented by somebody entirely on their side." Hull spent time surfing

the Internet and talking to industry contacts about his preference. To date, he said he has not found anyone else in Ontario limiting themselves to just buyers. He said in some American states, there are laws that realtors must declare allegiance to one side of the other. In British Columbia, where the real estate market is spinning out of control, there was a proposal to ban the practice of multiple rep-

resentation. While promoting his venture, Hull said he doesn't want to disparage any colleagues in the field who are working the traditional model, noting "there are some highly talented and highly ethical people in the field." He simply stated he might have stumbled upon an unmet need because he had the ability to take a risk.

Armstrong shares hard-court enthusiasm with Clippers Broadcaster, former NCAA coach imparts positive message JASON PARKS STAFF WRITER

There are few people as infectious and positive than Jack Armstrong when the television personality is around a basketball court. Some very lucky members of the County Clippers organization had the opportunity to have some time with the veteran TSN colour man Friday afternoon as the Brooklyn, New York native spent time in Prince Edward County last week. Armstrong, a former NCAA Division I coach with Niagara University, put the players through their paces at PECI's Gym B, having them complete drills and working them through a scrimmage. But perhaps the most important part of the day was when Armstrong had them all take a knee at centre court and spoke to them about the value of respect. Respect for the game, for your opponent, for your coaches and respect for your parents where some of the character attributes Armstrong touched on during a heart-to heart with about 30 players that ranged in age from 8 to 16. “The Xs and Os are easy.

MAKING HIS POINT Famed TSN basketball analyst and former NCAA Division 1 basketball coach JackArmstrong speaks to a collection of County Clippers players during a practice session at PECI last Friday afternoon. (Jason Parks/Gazette staff)

It's the people you have to work on,” Armstrong told the Gazette afterwards. “(Legendary Buffalo Bills coach) Marv Levy said ‘Ability without character always loses.’ As coaches, as teachers and as parents our job is to encour-

age, nourish, and challenge and to bring out good character and habits to develop people that are going to be good citizens. When they are all those things, they are good players.” Armstrong does take his

positive life lesson message to schools in the Greater Toronto Area during the basketball season but says it's rare he would make a stop like this in the summer. As fate would have it, Armstrong is friends with a

Clippers coach and agreed to come visit Prince Edward County during the height of the summer season and spend a little time talking life and round ball. As positive as he is about the game of basketball, he

was equally glowing about his time in this community. “It's so beautiful and it's not a hidden gem anymore because everyone is talking about it. The quality of life is off the charts and you can see it in the people, folks here have a lot of pride in living and raising a family here,” Armstrong enthused. “The great thing is that the community has really taken to the sport of basketball with the Clippers program and that's great to see.” The growth of basketball in Canada has been encouraging to see for Armstrong and he spoke about some of the Canadian stars that have arrived and that will soon arrive on the NBA stage. “We're getting there in basketball, in a few years watch out. Of course, I just checked out the NHL draft, a lot of Americans taken in the first round, what's going on! The Leafs drafted an American guy!” Armstrong joked to a round of laughter. Another message Armstrong offered Friday afternoon was to try to put into context the big professional basketball news of last week that saw superstar Kevin Durant leave his Oklahoma City Thunder to join in the Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors — a team that's already led by MVP Steph Curry.

The Wellington Dukes continue to stock the shelves with hockey talent at the Essroc Arena. The club announced a flurry of signings for the Junior C ranks last week that included a member of the 2016 Ontario Hockey Association Schmalz Cup champion Ayr Centennials and member of the perennial powerhouse Alliston Hornets. We are thrilled with the addition of all five players from the Junior C level and are

excited about their commitment to the Wellington Dukes organization,” Head Coach and General Manager Marty Abrams said. “These signing will help our program.” Three of the five skaters are very well known quantities to the Wellington club. Forwards Evan Foley and Brendan Rylott skated for the Central Development Hockey League Dukes this spring after having played for Port Hope and Campbellford respectively in the 2015-2016 Empire B Junior C league season. “For Evan, we thought he

just got better and better last year went on and his development curve is moving in the right direction. He has tremendous speed and great puck skills,” Abrams said. Foley had 61 points (23 goals and 38 assists) in 38 contests last season, earning him rookie of the year honours for the local Junior C league. Rylott's two-way play impressed Dukes brass this season as he was one of Campbellford's most steady and relied upon performers at either end of the rink. “He's very highly regarded

by the Campbellford coaching staff and he delivers a 200-foot game which is very impressive.,” Abrams commented. Rylott had 10 goals and nine helpers while suiting up for all 40 Rebels contests this season and while he played a dynamic role the Cobourg native only amassed eight minutes in penalties. Tough-nosed defenceman Keegan Ferguson is a Quinte Red Devils grad and played for the Panthers as an underager this past season.

The Grafton native was an Oshawa Generals draft pick in the 2015 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection Draft and played 38 games for the Port Hope squad. “We've watched him for a couple of years now and he has a very high compete level while playing the game hard,” Abrams said. Ferguson, who never met a corner of the rink he didn't like, had a pair of goals and added eight helpers in his first season of junior hockey. Tyler Harrison, 18, comes to Wellington by way of the aforementioned champion Centennials and was a highly sought after forward by a number of Junior A and B clubs. The Kitchener native had 18 goals and 36 assists in his first season in the Midwestern Junior C loop and was the rookie-of-the-year award winner. In helping lead the Cents to the Schmalz, Harrison had 29 points in 26 playoff games. “Harrison has a great skill set and moves very well for a big forward,” Abrams said. “He played a lot of meaningful games this spring for a championship club in Ayr and a lot of teams were after his services after that playoff run. We're very excited he will be in Wellington this season.” Jackson Arcan,17, comes to the Dukes from a highly regarded Hornet program.

work launches a first=inning home run Tuesday to help lift his club to a 13-7 win over Whitepine Watershed. (Jason Parks/Gazette staff)

Armstrong shares his opinions on where Raptors need to improve


WATCHING IT GO Terra Vista Rockies first baseman Greg Wall-

All good things must come to an end and that includes winning streaks. Prince Edward County Men's Fastball League leaders Whitepine Watershed suffered their first setback of the 2016 campaign Tuesday night in Picton, losing a 13-7 slugfest to host Terra Vista Landscaping. Greg Wallwork's two-run bomb in the bottom of the first paced the Rockies to their fourth win of the year, moving them to 4-6. Lefty Wil Claus surrendered three runs in the top half of the first inning while making his seasonal debut but managed to keep the Whitepine attack under control for the most part through the final six innings.

To be fair to Whitepine, the club was operating short staffed Tuesday and was lacking regular starters Jamie Thompson and Dan Anthony. The Tyendinaga-based squad leads the loop with an 8-1 record. In other action Tuesday evening, another well known hurler was sparkling in his debut. Dan Wallwork had 12 strikeouts as the visiting Beatty Seeds Huskers downed Danford Contracting 5-2 in Frankford. Husker shortstop George Campbell went two-for-three and knocked in a pair of runs. Beatty Seeds evened their record at 5-5 while the Contractors fell to 3-7. Tonight in Picton Terra Vista hooks up with the Warren's Excavating Ameliasburgh A's. The first pitch is at 8:30 p.m.

Durant's club fell to the Warriors in the 2016 playoffs and one of the leagues best forwards seems to have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;if you can't beat them, join themâ&#x20AC;? attitude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone talks about how you are a failure if you don't get a ring or a title or a championship and I think that's you know what,â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Garbage?â&#x20AC;? offered someone from the crowd, paraphrasing Armstrong's 'Get that garbage out of here' catch phrase from his TSN broad-

casts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Exactly. A champion is someone that gives everything they've got. sometimes you win, some time you lose and sometimes the guy or gal across from you is just better. You know what you do, you tip your cap, shake their hand and say 'great game',â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said. After the session, Armstrong explained further, stating that the pressures of securing a championship title during a stellar career and not becoming one of those superstars that never got to taste champagne at

the end of the playoffs was leading to these moves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guys are so obsessed with the holy grail and the ring that we've lost sight of the fact that sport is still about being with a good group of guys on a good team and I think we as a society have been trashing people when they don't win and I don't think that's right,â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said, pointing to NBA greats John Stockton, Karl Malone, Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller who never held up the O'Brien trophy and get chastised for it by some.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not everyone can win,â&#x20AC;? he said. In terms of the Toronto Raptors, a return trip to the Eastern Conference finals in 2017 will require the club to make a personnel move. They need to improve their front court and get better in terms of perimeter shooting,â&#x20AC;? Armstrong said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have some of the younger players like Delon Wright and Norman Powell as well as draft picks like Bruno Caboclo and Lucas Nogueira that are going to have to contribute next year.â&#x20AC;?

Camp ROC offers youth smiles to start their summer Diverse programming piques interests of 125 participants

The kids were rocking out at Camp ROC again last week. The popular post-school year get-together hosted at PECI featured 125 campers for the four day session. Organized by the local youth empowerment organization, the summer kick off camp has been going for close to a decade and is usually booked completely within days of the registration kick off in early spring. So what puts this camp so high on the list of must-do summer events for local youth aged 6-14? Diversity of programming might be part of it as there are basketball, soccer, ball hockey and creative arts sessions running daily. The over two dozen teen leaders combine with the adult coaches and keep things light and lively and keep the smiles coming all day. And there's the camaraderie of fun and hijinks between the various programming groups. Recreation Outreach Centre (ROC) communications director Lesley Lavender isn't sure its one single aspect that keeps the program at or near capacity year after year.

“The kids want to come back year after year,” Lavender explained. “Camp ROC is about fun and skill development and leadership development. The kids have a lot of fun.” The program is supported by Ontario Power Generation and the Food for Learning Foundation with those contributions off setting the cost of lunches and

snacks that are provided for campers. The complement of campers is not restricted to Prince Edward County youth as a number of seasonal visitors send their children to Camp ROC. “It's a chance for them to

engage and participate in the county youth community,” Lavender said. “For the local students, it's a great chance to get acclimated to PECI and meet and hang out with some secondary school teachers and students.”

The Prince Edward County Quilters’ Guild wishes to express their deepest gratitude to the residents and businesses of Prince Edward County for their support of our 16th biannual Quilt Show.

Expansion possible in future Teeing Up Fore Health Care turns over $30,538 for hospital BROKER, from page 15

"It would take a particular sort of individual to go way out on a limb. If I was 35 and had a kid who was going to go to university in five years and had a big house mortgage, would I have taken the risk to do something like this? I don't know. I'm at the point in my life where those types of challenges are behind me." Despite the positive response, Hull said there is no mistaking the fact he is taking a risk. For most real estate agents, business comes from listings. They'll post an advertisement on the Internet or in the paper, prospective buyers will call about the property and they'll strike up a relationship, he said. Without listings to offer, marketing becomes a challenge. "I don't have any bait in a conventional sense to attract attention. I have to work harder at marketing than you normally would." Hull said he has worked to establish himself as an authoritative source on the local market through regular blog entries and social media posts. He also said referrals are a big part of his marketing plan. He dismissed the notion that a connection to a brokerage is the only path to success. Asked about how his industry colleagues have accepted his course of action, Hull said he's received support and congratulatory emails. He felt their reaction reinforced his contention most competition is for listings.

"People who are successful in this business are confident, they're not worried about me," he said. Hull has also said he tries to work with those colleagues who are trying to sell or list properties when prospecting on behalf of his clients. Most are co-operative because they're eager to make sales. A question on the minds of many is how he gets paid. Hull said he works like any other realtor would on an MLS transaction, receiving the normal commission paid by the seller. On owner sales, he negotiates a percentage Currently, Hull works out of his own home. While he would like to eventually have space to meet with clients, the former marketing executive and consultant understand his biggest investment right now should be on spreading his buyer-centric messaging to attract clientele. His hope is to work evenly in the commercial and residential markets. Given the demand for realtors offering similar services, Hull said he could see a time where he could employ other agents or expand to different markets in the Quinte region and elsewhere in the province. "It's a business, it's not a self-employment project. I'm not at a point where it would make sense to do justice to someone else. I have to prove the concept, fine tune the marketing, and have a product that works. When I get that far, I'd be open to expanding within and outside this community."

During their second time around the Picton Golf and Country Club loop, the Teeing Up Fore Health Care field posted a much better score. Last week, it was announced the June 11 golf tournament raised $30,538.34 for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Life Saver II campaign, up from $23,000 in the first year of the Re/Max-led fundraising event. Last year, local Re/Max agents came forward with the idea to host the tournament and partner with community members in an effort to reach their $250,000 pledge to raise medical equipment for the hospital. With both tournaments accounted for, the thermometer at their office on the corner of Main and Lake streets in Picton sits at $160,000. Some 20 foursomes participated tin this year’s event and a number of sponsor stepped forward to contribute, including Wilkinson and Company, who was a naming sponsor for the second straight year.

Corporate sponsors like Market High Advertising, Parkside Landscaping and Contracting, Welling of Picton, CIBC Mobile Mortgage Team, the Claramount Inn, Sobeys Picton, Huff Estates, and Picton Home Hardware also took leadership roles, while about 40 local businesses served as hole sponsors. The foundation’s past chair Leo Finnegan said his organization was thrilled with the efforts Re/Max and its part-

ners have taken on to help the hospital treat more than 35,000 patients annually — and about 3,200 of those patients receive scopes through the regional low-risk endoscopy centre at the hospital. The money raised this year will pay for a replacement colonoscope. “The foundation’s goal is to build partnerships in the county with businesses and others who will work with us to meet the needs of our

fundraising endeavours to bring state of the art equipment to our hospital,” Finnegan said. “We are proud of Re/Max’s ongoing efforts to Tee Up Fore Health Care in support of our county hospital.” Brett Hele, Graham Cobb, Tim Mitchell, and Dwayne Isenor won the tournament, scoring11-under par. Terry Greer and Wendy Salt had the longest drives for male and female competitions respectively, while Bruce Reddick and Brenda Hartwig were closest to the pin. Darren Colp won the grand prize draw for a $550 package to the Brookstreet Hotel in Kanata. Curt Conder won an auction for a prize package donated by CIBC investment consultant Correen Reynolds at $360, while Hele won the auction for a CIBC golf bag for $150. Plans are already underway for next year’s event to be held Tuesday, June 23, 2017. -Staff

Windows from former Methodist church among items for sale TREASURES, from page 5

Another set of rare and unique items with a deep local connection Neville was presenting for purchase this weekend was a pair of windows from the former Picton Methodist Church that was levelled one Sunday morning in late summer of 2010. The windows, one of which contained stain glass work, were about to be tossed

into a dumpster before they were rescued. “A young lady who was just here had to walk away with tears in her eyes because she was born and raised in that church,” he added. Less gruesome fare was offered at the table of KAL's collectibles where sports cards and memorabilia seemed to be drawing plenty of interest. Kim Turner said cards and items from the 1960s and ‘70s

are still holding their value but e-bay and online auctions have certainly changed the sports collectibles industry. “The old stuff is still holding its value but the explosion of popularity of the sports card hobby in the 1990s really flooded the market. Some of these great players that are going to the Hall of Fame like Martin Brodeur and Jaromir Jagr, their rookie cards are worth nothing because there are some many

of them,” Turner said. Another dealer that had a wide variety of items was Jane Brownson and her company Favourite Ole Things. The Madoc-area dealer does about 20 shows annually and was happy to add the curling club show to her regular schedule. “It's been a really great show in the past so I'm happy to see it make a comeback after a year off,” she said.

Ants offer good and bad qualities in gardens

Given that the peony blooming season is just over so that ants, which are attracted to the nectar, are no longer crawling amidst the blossoms, they are not in the forefront of my mind. The rumour that ants help open up those blossoms is false, but they do no harm to the peony plants so it is a nonissue for me. They are also likely to consume other pests on the peonies if they get in the antsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; way in their search for nectar. I had, however, been asked questions about ants largely around how to get rid of an inconveniently located nest. This was further brought into focus for me when a series of e-mails turned up on the Master Gardeners group site exploring a number of aspects of antsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nests and activities, including possible ways of getting rid of them or not. Perhaps the most unique information concerned the actual size of some nests as one site discussed filling a nest with concrete, certainly an unusual way of getting rid of ants though that was not their intent. Instead they discovered that the antsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nest occupied 500 square feet and was 26 feet deep. The issue I found initially most interesting was trying to identify the type of ant that was the issue. It brought me back to concerns regarding the presence of ants in the home. Ants that were coming into the kitchen and getting into food were easy to get rid of using ant traps containing boric acid that could be taken back to the nest. Carpenter ant issues were more complex as they could cause damage. In fact a carpenter antsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nest on a country property hydro pole eventually weakened it to the extent


that it collapsed taking the power it provided with it. The presence of such ants would require an expert assessment as to the damage they were causing. Ants outdoors are generally simply part of the environment during the warmer months. The occasional stinging antsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nest and poorly located antsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; nests in terms of human activity are often less acceptable. Dry, sandy soils are more likely to be infested with ants than a rich loamy soil in which most plants thrive. Ants, in a gardening area, may just need to be encouraged to relocate by enriching the soil in which they are found. Leaving the soil as is but destroying the nest or nests is likely to leave the area open to a return of this type of ant and a new nest or nests. An ant nest or nests located near an outdoor sitting or eating area can be dug up and relocated at a distance. The ants will complete the

reorganization once most of their colony has been relocated. I suppose from the antsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; perspective, the human eating area can be relocated as well! The decision, however, does not rest with the ants. Furthermore ants make their own contributions to a well functioning garden area. Like earthworms their underground movements help aerate the soil. They break down various vegetable and animal matter and add it to our soil. While they are not essentially predators, they will destroy pests simply because they are in their path and can be viewed as sustenance. They also care for some butterfly larvae that emit a sweet sticky substance that they will consume. Therefore gardens function better with most types of ants present rather than not. If you have stinging ants in a location with a lot of human interaction you will certainly want to rid yourselves of them and relocating does not seem like a smart option. If boric acid and sugar does not work to close down the nest you might want to try boiling water for a faster fix. Whether you need to destroy other ant nests is a personal choice depending on tolerance and location but be prepared to do it more than once. Ants are likely to be more persistent than humans and there are clearly a lot more of them to carry out the task.

Task force would improve police’s ability to act across jurisdictional boundaries TRAFFICKING, from page 3

MacKay said police forces have been talking about trafficking for some time. They've also been able to learn from survivors about their experiences in being lured in and eventually escaping. That training has helped Belleville officers understand the crime, though it has also brought about a sad truth. "They've said once your officers are trained, you're going to see it more in your community," she said. MacKay indicated the first priority is saving the victims currently involved. The next is

J. H. Anderson

prevention. If youth, parents, and teachers are more aware of warning signs, they can intervene earlier with highrisk cases. "There is always going to be a demand and there are always going to be individuals willing to take advantage of others for financial gain. Our goal has to be education and awareness." The chief declared her support for Scott's work. She said trained officers can build the trust more easily with victims to help them escape and transition into the right support services. With special Crown attorneys and judges, a victim


can also move on with life more quickly and more convictions can arise. She said it takes a lot of courage for a victim to even come forward, let alone stay committed to a trial for three years.

Multi-jurisdictional cooperation is most important, however. MacKay said the crime crosses borders and though all police forces may be concerned, it is hard to make ground without a provincial task force. "Everyone has to work together because of the transient nature. They may start off in Belleville for a couple of nights, then go to Picton. With a provincial task force, you wold have officers that are highly trained, that can be more mobile and travel as these individuals travel to build up trust and get evidence as required."

Charlebois has worked with women who have been trafficked both in the Quinte region and elsewhere and said she's hearing a lot more about it day-to-day. She said by making more people aware of what the crime looks like, who is at risk, and what community members at large can do, there may be a chance to help. She added there must be some attention paid to the fact people are willing to support such business too. "Why are we not outraged? This is a business and somebody is paying for this. Who is paying for it? We should be outraged. If somebody is making $250,000 on one young girl, someone here in our province is paying for that and we have to be talking about that as well." Smith said he was pleased with Monday's event, particularly because the crime is happening in motels, condos, and apartments right in this community and he said Scott's presentation even opened his eyes. "The awareness isn't there. That's why we're doing this," he said. "It's scary as a dad. I have daughters that are 13 and 15 years old. I know how often they're on social media. Sometimes they're on their tablets or iPhones in the middle of the night talking to God knows who. I know they have friends who have boyfriends in Ottawa they've never met. It's really alarming to know our girls can be victimized so easily. "It's crucial that we get into the schools — not the high schools, but the public schools — and make sure the kids are aware of exactly what kind of things are out there. As I heard today, the perpetrators know exactly who to look for." For the average person, Scott said girls acquiring different clothing and exhibiting

changed behaviour might be a warning sign. She said some parts of the province have taken the initiative to create their own programs to raise awareness in schools but there hasn't been funding to offer those programs provincially. Prince Edward County youth do appear well equipped, however, as the Recreation Outreach Centre, PECI, and the Prince Edward OPP offered an informative program for intermediate students that outlined the risks involved in social media, if not addressing human trafficking primarily. Scott also said she's been impressed that police forces have shifted their own funds to human trafficking, though it's hard to expect them to have the resources to fight it properly without dedicated provincial funding. While funding the task force and education programs may take time, Scott said changes could be made immediately. Expanding the use of protection orders would offer a tool to help 16- and 17-yearolds escape. Currently, there is no mechanism to protect those victims unless they're able to come forward voluntarily to ask for assistance. Like a restraining order, the tool would allow the legal system to threaten heavy fines or jail time for pimps contacting their victims, allowing two or three years for those victims to make a clean break. Adding the crime to the sex offenders registry also could be done now. As she continues to travel the province to drum up awareness and support for her bills, Scott said it is time to act. "I'm from small-town Ontario and this is happening everywhere. It's our children," she said. "If there's a crime, it's our duty to protect them."
