Sarnia development charges meet with opposition BY HEATHER WRIGHT This Week

By law, the municipality must replace its development charge guidelines every five years. The current by-law expires in July. So the city hired a consultant to review the current Sarnia homebuilders say its the wrong time system that charges people who are building for the city to be boosting development homes or new businesses a fee per square foot charges. to pay for the municipal services, such as roads, arenas and parks.

other municipalities of similar size in the area. The city called a meeting with homebuilders to talk about the proposed changes, but no one attended. Staff felt that was an indication the homebuilders were satisfied with the plan. But that’s not so, according to Frank Durco Jr., the president of the Sarnia Lambton Homebuilders Association. “We all talking and humming and hawing basically wondering how to approach this (proposed increase)and probably in the end this was best because we got in front of council and they got to hear a different point of view.” Durco says this is simply not the right time to be increasing development charges so dramatically. “We just don’t see the need for a 50 per cent increase,” says Durco. “We’re all in the same boat where it is hard to determine exactly how much is needed. But to be on the high side, especially in slow economic times, we don’t want to err that way.” Durco says the pace of construction has already slowed by 50 per cent because of the

economic downturn and new homebuyers are being very price conscious. “Buyers are finicky and they do look at price, definitely,” says Durco. “They don’t specifically say development charges but they’re looking at the total price of the house.” Durco says every little extra increase makes a difference, especially when they can build just a few kilometers down the road for less money. “If you build in two different areas, especially when times slow down ... St. Clair Township they keep (development charges) down. Do people go there? Absolutely,” he says. The city has to do all it can to keep people interested in building in Sarnia, he says. “Instead of losing four out of 10 to other municipalities, (it would be better to) lose two out of 10 because of reasonability.” City council put the new by-law on hold until the July council meeting so the homebuilders and city staff can meet together to try to find a compromise.

Police had fewer incidents with physical force in 2008 BY HEATHER WRIGHT This Week

Sometimes in policing, even the idea that an officer might come down hard is enough to ease a tense situation. Sarnia Police Service released its annual Use of Force report for 2008 recently and there was a marked decrease in the number of incidents where police had to use physical force to subdue people on the wrong side of the law. The were 31 incidents which required officers to report the use of force in 2008, down dramatically from the 78 reported in 2007. Officers faced suspects with handguns, rifles, knifes and in one incident a baseball bat.

Police Chief Phil Nelson says when you consider officers dealt with over 21,000 people in that year and arrested 1,916 people, it is an amazing number. “That’s only 1 per cent of our 1,916 arrests ... great to do the job and not have to deal with violence,” says Nelson. During 28 of the 31 incidents, officers drew their weapon. Officers on regular patrol are by far the most likely to face a violent confrontation - 89 per cent of the incident reports were filed by the uniform division. Eighty per cent of the time the incidents take place at night and 64 per cent of the incidents could be linked to alcohol use. And nine times a Taser was used to subdue an unruly suspect. The stun guns have been controversial. Investigative reports lead the

RCMP first, and other departments across the country later, to remove from service any Taser made before 2006. Right now, four RCMP officers in British Columbia are the focus of an inquiry into the death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski who died after being hit by several Tasers in an airport. While the devices are controversial, Nelson says they are helping officers to restore calm to tense situations, even though they may never be used. “Now that its been in use and people know that Tasers are in use... sometime the effect of simply the presence of (the Taser) may help de-escalate the situation,” he says. The same can be said of the members of the containment team. Four members of the team

are working on the beat. They wear their full tactical uniform and have an immediate visual impact when there is a confrontation. “What happens as soon as they’re seen, the situation de-escalates and the officers don’t have to use force to detain the suspect. That’s great.” Nelson also credits continuing training on how to use force in confrontations as another reason local police are able to stabilize situations. “All officers are required to take use of force training and judgment part of it is very important,” says Nelson. “They’re told how to use different types of force ... your presence, how you talk ... (The officers are) constantly being tested and aware of the civil and criminal effects of the use of force.”

Free parking plan seen as way to fight impaired driving BY HEATHER WRIGHT This Week

Could free parking stop drinking and driving? Sarnia Coun. Mike Kelch thinks so and he wants the city to give it a try. Kelch has served notice that he will ask councillors to approve overnight parking in the city during the spring, summer and fall. He says it should help people who are out on the town do the right thing. Kelch said he get complaints from people, “who say ‘Okay,

you don’t want me to drink and drive. So I go to a bar and the only place I can park is on the side of the road ...and I have a little too much to drink ... so I’m going to leave my car and take a cab. I can’t get in my car and move it anywhere - a cop could catch me doing that ... and I’m done. So how about you guys in the city, in the months you’re not worried about plowing snow, allowing overnight parking?’” Kelch says the City of London has already approved a similar plan. The rising drinking and driving rates in Sarnia-Lambton have been well documented. The OPP says nine deaths in the

Herbal One 8 x 78 Process

last three years can be directly linked to drinking and driving. So far, 96 people have been arrested and charged with impaired driving offences. Twelve of those were involved in collisions. Kelch says this is one way to show that community leaders recognize the problem and want to help provide a solution. “We really are trying to encourage people to take cabs, to carpool, to walk, to do whatever and we’re not making it very easy for them.” Kelch’s proposal will be up for discussion July 13.

Industry concerned about development charges Sarnia Coun. Jon McEachran says large industries shouldn’t have to pay development charges. McEacheran floated the idea recently at a city council meeting where there was a discussion about the fees developers pay to the city for municipal serv-

ice development. He wanted city staff to do some leg work to find out how much money the charges bring in from industry and what other municipalities are charging. McEachran says cutting industrial development charges completely would stimulate business and that would increase jobs. “It’s a vicious cycle; with development charges

there are less taxes collected,” he says, noting it may stop companies from investing in Sarnia. “We need to support working class jobs ... we can’t compete for industry with higher taxes so we should eliminate development charges,” added McEachran, calling the fees “upfront” tax. “There is no better way to prove we are open for This Week Heather Wright

Mike Cadotte of DOT Construction in Sarnia works on a home in the Rapids Parkway area this week. Tim Cadotte says this is the first framing job the company has worked on this year. At this time last year, they had already worked on seven homes. The Sarnia Lambton Homebuilders’ Association is concerned an increase in development charges will harm an already slow housing sector.

business.” But other councillors didn’t support the move. Coun. Mike Kelch says the money would have to be made up in other areas. “The property taxpayers will simply pay for development,” he said.

A local chiropractor will soon spruce up a dilapidated area of Exmouth Street. Dr. David Matheson plans to tear down a former auto body repair shop at the corner of Exmouth Street and London Road and build a two-storey building which will include his chiropractic office and his home. Matheson also will build a second storey onto a garage at the back of the property for storage of medical records. While councilors praised the redevelopment of the land, city staff recommended the application be refused because it didn’t comply with the Official Plan for the primarily residential area. The office would have park-

ing in front of the building which planners said wasn’t consistent with the residential nature of the area. City staff and the chiropractor talked about moving the parking to the back of the lot, but it would make it more difficult for patients to enter the office. Councilors including Anne Marie Gillis, say this is “an excellent example of urban renewal” and any concerns about parking in front of the building could be eased by camouflaging the parking lot with a berm and landscaping. Matheson is expected to begin construction this summer.

Darda Sales came home June 25 to help say thanks to Pathways. The gold-medal Paralympian spent a lot of her time at the children’s health centre starting at the age of seven. The family moved to Sarnia after she lost her leg about four years earlier in a farm accident. “I spent a lot of time there,” Sales said. “I feel, in some ways, I really grew up there ... I started taking swimming lessons at the pool there and it was the best thing that ever happened to me.” One of the defining moments in her life was having Dave Scheller, a manager at Pathways, ask her if she wanted to take up competitive swimming, she said. With all of her siblings active in sports ranging from basketball to karate, Sales said it helped fill a real void. The missing leg kept her on the sidelines.

Meeting a group of older swimmers at her first swim meet was another of those turning points. “They told me about the Paralympic Games,” Sales said. “They told me how it was the second-largest sporting event in the entire world and how they were travelling to Barcelona, Spain, to represent Canada against the best in the world. At my very first swim meet, they inspired me and I decided that that was my goal.” It led to the creation of a Pathways swim team with three swimmers. She was one of them getting swimming lessons in the centre’s oversized hot tub. That start led to her participation in three Paralympic Games, including a gold medal at the Sydney, Australia, Games. The roar of 100,000 people cheering from the stands is something she’ll never forget, she said. “The second they brought that torch into the stadium, each and every athlete held their breath,” Sales said. “To the world, the

Keep cool out there

C

onan O’Brien, a 21st century philosopher and sometime late-night talk show host, has a catch phrase: “keep cool my babies.”

With the recent extreme heat and humidity that our area has been experiencing, everyone should heed the advice of O’Brien. Take necessary precautions to take care of yourself in the heat. The combined exposure of high heat, high humidity and smog can cause varying degrees of heat related illnesses, according to the Chatham-Kent public health unit. High-risk groups include the elderly, infants and preschool children, people with chronic illnesses such as heart conditions, people involved in strenuous outdoor activity and people taking certain medications. Among the ways the health unit recommends to stay cool and prevent heat related illness: Remember to drink lots of water, while avoiding alcohol, coffee, tea or cola; stay in the shade; never leave children, the elderly or pets in a car; check on neighbours, relatives and friends who are frail, elderly and live alone; wear, light, loose fitting clothing; take cool baths or showers; and eat light, cool foods. Signs of heat related illness include: Heat cramps: painful muscle cramps in legs or abdomen; heat exhaustion: heavy sweating, weakness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, fainting; heat stroke - a medical emergency - signs include headache, fainting, confusion or altered mental state.

Council called upon for an easy decision on parking I t seems like a no-brainer.

At its next gathering in mid-July, Sarnia City Council will be asked to consider tweaking a municipal bylaw to allow

residents the right to park their vehicles on city streets during non-snow plowing months; presumably mid-April to mid-November. Counc. Mike Kelch feels such a move could help curb drinking and driving in our community, noting that under the current system, those who enjoy a few pops at a local watering hole and want to leave their vehicle on the street have to endure a costly ticket. It’s a chance for community leaders to be part of the solution to a well documented problem, Kelch said. Nearby London has already passed similar legislation, but other communities are

not as forthcoming with bending the rules for those who like to tip a few. A recent article in a newspaper in Hampton Roads, Virgina quotes its police chief as saying overnight parking near a popular beach strip would be a terrible idea becauase it would encourage rowdy types to stay out all night. He says drinkers have to think ahead and exercise personal responsibility by having a designated driver. In a perfect world, that’s a wonderful sentiment, but it’s just not practical. Not everyone who is still in the bar at last call had planned for that to happen. We must consider all options to keep in-

toxicated drivers out of their vehicles and off the road in order to prevent needless accidents and even deaths. At the time of writing this column, 96 people have been arrested this year in our area and charged with alcohol or drug- related driving offences and 12 of them, or one in every eight, had been involved in some sort of collision. If even one life can be saved or one injury prevented by changing the rules, council has a civic duty to make it happen. Barry Wright is a veteran local freelance journalist.

Sorry, moms; dads are a lot cooler than you are E veryone thinks that moms are better than dads. Hallmark plays a big part in this. The truth is that dads are way cooler than moms and I can briefly outline why. If a boy wanted to twirl around on a tire swing and his mom was there, she would: Caution him against it Stand beside him as he does it to comfort him in case he gets hurt If it was just the boy and his dad, the dad would:

Dare him to go as fast as he could Bet him that he’s going to toss his cookies all over the lawn High five him when he does Dads do not want to protect their kids from harm. Dads want to help their kids Build Character. To most moms, it appears that they (the dads) are trying to kill their children. This is probably not true in most cases. Another character-building exercise is to constantly assure their kids that they’ll be “alright.” The great dads in history actually gave good reasons (sometimes unresearched) to help their kids better enjoy their discomfort: Kid: “Daddy, I can’t find my teddy bear to kiss goodnight.” Great dad: “You’ll be alright. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Kid: “Dad, Ben peed in the bathtub

just as I was getting in.” Great dad: “You’ll be alright. Pee gives your skin a nice sheen.” Kid: “Dad, I dropped my doughnut on the driveway.” Great dad: “You’ll be alright. It’ll put hair on your chest.” Sometimes, even mothers need a dad’s calm reassurance in order to make it through the day: Worried mom: “Honey, I think the sandwich meat that I put in the kids’ lunches is going bad.” Great dad: “They’ll be alright. It’ll clean ‘em right out.” Nothing makes a dad prouder than when the kids start picking up on it: Great dad: “How was school today, son?” Son: “It was awesome. I fell in the gravel and shredded my knee!” Great dad: “Cool!” Son: “I know! I may never walk again but

I know I’m gonna have a sick scar from that one!” Great dad: “Lucky!” Dads are also cool because they never let their kids get the best of them, like certain other parents I could mention: Mom: “Honestly son, you are going to give me a heart attack someday...” Dad: “Boy, I will crush you, then eat you. See this belly? Your older brother is in there.” Son: “I don’t have an older brother.” Dad: “Not anymore you don’t. He’s in my belly.” Yes, dads are cooler than moms and moms get all the attention. Luckily, dads are good at sucking it up. They know it will put hair on their chest.

To the Editor: I read with interest Barry Wright’s column in the June 24 issue regarding the Youth Action Alliance’s future. I certainly share your concerns about this matter. Combating tobacco related illness is a priority for the McGuinty government. We continue to focus on preventing youth from starting to smoke, investing approximately $37 million in innovative programs — more than ever before in history — designed to prevent children and youth from starting to smoke. Valuable lessons learned from the YAAs will help shape future models for youth engagement. It is

imperative that we build on past success and move forward with a comprehensive approach that includes all Ontarians, including our children and youth. As part of this strategy, a new youth engagement working group will look at more effective and innovative ways to outreach to Ontario youth. It will allow us to keep fighting for a smoke free Ontario, and help even more Ontarians quit. We commend the Public Health Units on their accomplishments through peer to peer programs like the Youth Action Alliance that support our fight against tobacco. We will continue to build on our successes by addressing health promotion issues that affect children and youth in a more integrated and comprehensive manner. We will continue to work with our partners as we move forward. Pat Hoy, M.P.P. Chatham-Kent-Essex

School boards invest in their communities Projects providing economic stimulus BY HEATHER WRIGHT This Week

It’s something Paul Wubben doesn’t really understand. As the school year drew to a close, both the St. Clair District Catholic School Board, which Wubben heads, and the LambtonKent District School Board passed their budgets. The total bill to taxpayers is almost $336 million dollars. And the biggest story in education this week was what the new public school in Sarnia’s south end should be named. “(The budget) isn’t something that often gets a lot of play,” says Wubben. “The issue of school year calendar gets a whole lot more attention.” The board’s decision to bring students back to school before Labour Day was a hot topic among parents, MPPs and local talk radio. For the record, the Catholic board will spend about $104 million this coming school year. That’s an increase in spending of about three per cent. Wubben says there will be a number of school renewal projects and at least one new school being constructed, injecting some much needed revenue into the local economy. “In the case of the board’s activity in Sarnia-Lambton, we’re going to spend about $16 million on new schools,” says Wubben. If the trustees approve the closure of St. Patrick high school a $12 million renovation will go ahead at St. Christopher. “That’s $28 million spent in Sarnia.” The economic stimulus of education extends beyond building projects. The Catholic board employs about 1,500 full and part time employees. About 80 per cent of St. Clair’s budget is directly related to salaries. The numbers are even larger at the Lambton-Kent District School Board where 2,318 people draw a paycheck from the $231.7 million budget - that’s about $185 million in salaries going into the community. Compare that with one of the biggest private employers in the area, Nova Chemicals. Its website says there are 1,000 employees at the company’s Sarnia-area facilities generating about $86 million in wages and benefits. “Most of the money is expended on salary,” says Wubben “Between the two boards you probably have the highest number employees. If you include the French boards, you absolutely have largest employer.” The French public and Catholic boards, which govern schools in all of southwestern Ontario, spend another $173 million. As an accountant and public board chair, Scott McKinley is used to dealing with large numbers. But he’s aware the spending he an his elected counterparts have control of amounts to a “large corporation, especially

in this community.” McKinley knows how schools impact the local economy. When he first became a trustee, McKinley asked if the public board had a policy to buy as many goods and services locally as possible to increase the economic benefit of education in the community. “The comment was made to me, that if we limit purchasing to local contractors, it will limit where the contractors can go outside this area.” McKinley says while local ratepayers foot the bill directly for some of the education cost in the community, much of the money comes from the larger pot of the provincial coffers. “We have a responsibility to get the best bang for the dollar for the taxpayers, so if you limit competition there is a potential, a potential we won’t get the most bang for our buck.” But he says the schools and the teachers, assistance and maintenance workers they employ, do make an economic impact on their community. It’s a fact Todd Case can speak to from experience. A decade ago, the mayor of Warwick Township fought to keep the public board from closing East Lambton Secondary School in Watford. The battle was lost and the school closed. Case says the economic fallout is still felt. Aside from losing the impact of 400 students walking downtown to spend money at lunchtime, there is an impact on economic development. Case says schools are the first things people ask about when they’re trying to relocate an existing company. “A high school is very important for a community to have ... if an employer is going to take some of their folks and move them to another area, they want to offer them a good quality of life. They want to offer them the same sort of things they have now,” says Case. And he says it hurts when the township has to tell them high school students travel about a half hour out of their community to attend school. “But this community has carried on and done fairly well considering they lost their school,” says Case. Does the loss of the high school lead locals to question the spending of the school boards more vigorously? Case doesn’t think so. “I do hear the odd thing about the board, but not much. But its not under the microscope as much as municipal politics ... and their budgets are quite a bit larger than in the local community ... When I hear about the budgets I get interested ... and think ‘wow, that’s a lot of money’ ... but do I take the time to ask the questions - no. “When you look at the portion of our taxes which goes to education, we should probably be more aware at how the boards are run.”

Wellington Street work going to 3 companies This Week

The reconstruction project on Wellington Street in Sarnia is so big, the work will be given to three different companies. Wellington Street from Finch Drive into the Sarnia Research Park will be widened, and sidewalks and bike paths will be added. The Highway 40 intersection at Wellington will also be upgraded. The federal and provincial governments gave the city two-thirds of the cost of the $11.7 million project last month. But city staff says there is a requirement to spend the cash in a two-year timeframe and that is going to be difficult. So council approved the idea of splitting the project up and giving different contractors the opportunity to do one section of the project in the hope the work can be completed by March 2010. Splitting the job up will cost the city an extra $60,000 in engineering fees.

East St. sewer Work is set to being on the last section of the $35 million East Street Sewer Separation project.

Pumping station Stone Town Construction of St. Mary’s has

been awarded the contract to install a new sanitary pumping station in the Sarnia Public Works yard at Devine Street. City staff estimated the work would cost about $6.5 million, however Stone Town Construction’s tender for the project came in at about $6.2 million.

Festivals get break Organizers of a number of local summer events will have a little less paperwork to do. Sarnia City Council has given a long term exemption to the Noise Bylaw to a nine local festivals. Right now, events such as Relay for Life or Bayfest have to provide public notice of their intention to get an exemption from the by-law and then go to council for approval each year, even if there is only one complaint about the noise levels to police and the city. A report to council says that “many of the events ...attract thousands of people, it seems unfair that only one complaint will trigger notice and application requirements.” Council agreed and gave the exemption to Bayfest, Canada Day Events, Dow People Place Events, Greekfest, Hiawatha Horse Park and Entertainment Centre, the Jazz Festival, Ribfest, the San Rocco Festival and Relay for Life.

BY HEATHER WRIGHT This Week

on selected items throughout the store

Even if you drive down Blackwell Road, you likely wouldn’t notice the Inter Recycling Landfill. And that’s just the way the neighbours like it. Lush green trees ring the property giving it a park-like atmosphere and, if you know where to look, you can see a crane fly over a small pond. But the feature the neighbours don’t like is the padlock on the gate. The landfill, which accepted non-hazardous industrial and household waste, has been closed since 2007. Ministry of Environment officials told the company because there was a body of water larger than a hectare on the property, it couldn’t be used for landfilling. The “lake” is a pond caused by the company which ran a gravel pit on the property in the 1970s. The neighbours want the landfill to reopen and they’re getting support from Sarnia City Council. In a letter to city councillors, Deb Krukowski of the Inter Recycling Landfill Liaison Committee says the neighbours have been pleased with the way the company has run the facility. But they’re worried about the future. “We believe if they are given the opportunity, they will properly manage the site and more importantly properly close and maintain

it.” But she adds, the committee is worried what will happen if the company isn’t given the opportunity to make enough money to safely close the landfill. “Our committee believes the landfill must be allowed to remain in operation to generate revenues that will allow the company to meet its obligations to maintain and remediate the property.” Council agreed with Krukowski and will write to the Minister of the Environment voicing its concerned. Coun. Mike Kelch is the city’s representative on the issue. He’s worried what would happen if the landfill is abandoned. “The company is saying we want to do the right thing here but if the Ministry doesn’t allow us to run the site and make some revenue here, we don’t have any money to do the job,” says Kelch. “The ministry is making zero commitment to do anything about it, so the neighbours are basically saying ...help them to do the right thing so as neighbours we don’t have the potential of a landfill in the future which neither the company nor the ministry are in a position to do anything about.” Kelch adds its in the city’s best interest to see the issue resolved also. There is concern for people using the Howard Watson Trail which abuts the property in the long term. But the city could also be stuck with an abandoned landfill. “If the landfill is just allowed to sit there, nothing may happen. It may be fine. We may find in five years there is leakage from the site which is going onto municipal land and we may have to close a portion of the Howard Watson Trail. Nothing could happen or some big stuff could happen and we want to deal with the problem now.”

402 noise exemption hits roadblock BY HEATHER WRIGHT This Week

There will be traffic chaos and possibly job losses after Sarnia City Council upheld a decision which keeps the Ministry of Transportation from working at night on the 402 road widening. That from Stan Korosec, vice president of the Bluewater Bridge Authority. City council heard from Korosec and the president of the Sarnia and District Chamber of Commerce at its regular council meeting June 22. Council heard that by only allowing work during the daytime hours it would lead to long delays at the border and cost business money. But when council met in special session three days later, it was the peace of mind of the residents and the disgust for the project which won out. The MTO will be widening the 402 from the bridge to Modeland Road to three lanes. The project is expected to take three years. The MTO asked for an exemption to the Noise by-law to allow night work for two months this summer and 25 days in the next two years. But local residents said the night work would be too disruptive to their lives. City council turned down the request in May. The MTO then released its plans for daytime construction which included re-routing traffic through Sarnia streets and closing the 402 completely for two days. Some city councillors reconsidered their position and asked that council re-

visit the issue. But when the vote was taken June 25, council upheld its original decision. Councillor Anne Marie 438 PALMERSTON ST., SARNIA Gillis’ vote was the key. And for Gillis, the disruption to www.lynmarauto.com the lives of the people of Sarnia was the main concern. “The noise barriers (along the 402) only act as a buffer for those living directly adjacent to the highway, but (the noise) has a cascading effect - it goes over the barriers and beyond. For those who live a kilometer north of the barriers the noise is horrendous.” Gillis says the construction would then disrupt the sleep of “thousands” of people. For the others who voted against the night work, Mayor Mike Bradley, and Councillors Mike Kelch, David 2000 GMC SIERRA Z71 1999 GMC SONOMA SLT Boushy, and Jim Foubister, this was one way to voice opStk. #1514 Stk. #1516 position to the mammoth project. “This is the biggest waste of taxpayers money in Sarnia- HOME OF ON THE FINANCING Lambton’s history,” said Mayor Mike Bradley after the vote. “They (the provincial and fedATTENTION eral governments) should kill Sam Shuqair Physiotherapy Clinic this project, put the money into (the widening of) Highway 40, Where the patient is our first priority put it into our hospitals, put it into our schools.

When construction crews take down the Christina Street overpass as part of the 402 widening project, the work will be done in the daytime. Officials with the Bluewater Bridge say it will cause traffic “chaos” and will significantly reduce the number of people using the Sarnia border crossing to the United States. The construction work is slated to begin this summer and last three years.

Company announces big plans for Wallaceburg manufacturer BY DAVID GOUGH Sun Media

A partnership between Wallaceburg Preferred Partners (WPP) and Innovative Hydrogen Solutions (IHS) could create hundreds of jobs at WPP in the next few years, says the president of IHS. IHS has signed a manufacturing supply agreement with Salem Preferred Partners (SPP) of Salem, Va., which operates WPP in Wallaceburg, to produce a retrofit system for

diesel engines for mass distribution in Canada. IHS president Joe Williams said that while it will be driven by sales projections, he expects WPP to boom. “Within the next 24 to 36 months it will be in between 200 to 400 jobs we will be directly responsible for in the Wallaceburg area,” Williams said. WPP has the exclusive manufacturing rights in Canada to produce the product,

Innovative Hydrogen Solutions, a research and development company, is partnering with Wallaceburg Preferred Partners to manufacture the product.

which retails for close to $8,000. WPP general manager Dan Brown said they will begin manufacturing to supply the Canadian market late this year or early next year. Currently no one is working at WPP. Navistar is WPP’s only current customer. Brown said partnering up with IHS is an excellent fit. “They were looking for somebody who could do mass production and that’s what we do best. They’re a research and development company and that’s what they do best,” Brown said. “We have a lot of great people and certainly hope to bring people back to work,” Brown said Like Williams, Brown said that they are hoping for “hundreds and hundreds” to be employed at WPP in the future to make the retrofit device. “It’s sales driven and we’re just waiting to see how things take off and how quickly,” Brown said. If things go well it could mean “a lot of jobs,” Brown said. IHS and WPP hosted an information seminar showcasing the technology at the Wallaceburg Civic Centre June 22. IHS’ patent-pending device, the I-PHI system, is an after market retrofit device designed to inject hydrogen and oxygen into the air intake manifold of the engine. The introduction of hydrogen gas during combustion causes a more efficient burn of fuel, resulting in fuel efficiency, reduced maintenance costs and emission reductions. Information from the company said that the payback period for their device is usually less than one year. Williams praised the efforts of Wallaceburg Community Task Force’s Stuart McFadden for helping to partner WPP and his company. “He has been dogged, he has been determined. He has constantly followed up with us, and he is responsible for putting us in front of the WPP guys,” said Williams. Due to McFadden’s determination and being impressed with WPP, IHS went with WPP instead of a company owned by IHS CEO Peter McLaughlin, Williams said.

Disruption to community with or without exemption Continued from Page 15 not necessary here.” As for the “traffic chaos”, Bradley says: “It doesn’t matter if there is an exemption (to allow night work) or not there is going to be dis-

ruption to the community.” For Bluewater Bridge officials, the question is not if there will be disruption but the scope of it. Korosec says allowing only daytime construction is the worst possible scenario.

THE BEST SUMMER ADVENTURES START WITH A GOOD BOOK.

Adreach 4 x 133 TD-Canada Trust Pro Green

“A single lane on 402 on the approach to the Bluewater Bridge is going to cause traffic chaos. Traffic will quickly back up on the highway, when that happens there are all sorts of safety issues,” says Korosec. “Traffic will be going down city streets ... There are loads from companies which have to get to the border in a timely and safe fashion. All that’s gone out the window now.” And he says travelers won’t want to use the area because of the delays. “The bridge could be clear of cars but because the trucks are

backed up, nobody’s going to get through.” Korosec says it is possible the decision will drive people away from using the Sarnia/Port Huron border crossing and that could have an impact on jobs. “There are 500 people who work on the Canadian side ...if traffic starts to go down because of this construction, which it probably will, it’s going to affect some jobs.” The MTO plans to chose a contractor in the next few weeks for the project and begin construction as soon as possible
