Coins for a cure: four-year-old survivor collects for the cause MELISSA DI COSTANZO THIS WEEK
David Barkley toddles around the front yard of his Sussex Street house on a sunny Friday morning. Clutched in one hand is a roll of pennies. He smiles shyly, drops the roll on a table, and effortlessly picks up a Planters tin can which weighs about five kilograms. In it are rolls upon rolls of loose change, ready to be presented to the Canadian Cancer Society on Friday, June 11 at the Relay for Life in Lombardy. Sporting his oversized bright yellow relay T-shirt from the 2009 event, the four-yearold junior kindergarten student at Duncan J. Schoular Elementary School is no stranger to the word cancer. When he was just 14 months old, the Smiths Falls boy was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a cancer that forms in nerve tissues, and is common to children and infants. Doctors discovered three tumors located behind David’s stomach and worked quickly to remove them. The tumors hadn’t yet attached to any of David’s organs, and were removed at CHEO. Currently, David is feeling much better than he was two years ago, but family friend Bonnie Laming notes David could be affected by another bout of the disease. “He’s not out of the woods until he’s seven,” she says, adding David’s now annual check-up is coming up on June 24. “It’s a childhood disease. If he makes it to then, he won’t get it again.” MELISSA DI COSTANZO/THIS WEEK
CHANGE FOR CHANGE David decided he wanted to help the cause.
David Barkley shows off his smile and the tin of coins he’s collecting for the Canadian Cancer Society, just in time for Friday’s Relay for Life in Lombardy.
“At that age, you carry it for the rest of your life,” explains Laming. “So, he got involved.” This year will be David’s third year participating in the survivor’s victory lap at the June 11 relay: he started walking when he was two and a half years old. But his participation extends even farther: David has been collecting pennies and loose change which he will donate towards finding a cure for cancer. This is his second year collecting funds. Last year, he collected $18 in pennies. This year, he’s set the bar higher. “We’re hoping to collect $200,” says Laming. Last week, their total was sitting at roughly $130, thanks to the help of family, friends, members of the community and local organizations. On Friday night, Laming hopes she and David will be able to present a cheque to the Canadian Cancer Society. “That’s our goal,” she says. “We’ve spent all year long collecting them. He saves dimes, nickels and pennies. We pick up pennies all over the place.” And he’s decided he wants to raise more funds again next year. David is excited to participate in the relay again. He’s looking forward to blowing bubbles and eating hot dogs and hamburgers. He’s also eager to walk with his big sister, Katie Coughlan. “He’s a typical child,” says Laming. “He’s quite the kid. I call him my survivor.” People who are still interested in registering for the relay can go to the Canadian Cancer Society office in Perth, which is located at 105 Dufferin St., unit 201, or can call the office at 613-267-1058.

Old Stone Mill celebrates bicentennial birthday TONY PALERMO
The village of Delta was bustling with activity this past weekend, as people gathered to celebrate the Old Stone Mill’s 200th birthday. The bicentennial celebrations kicked off Friday evening with a fundraising reception and previewing of a new exhibit titled “Down by the Old Mill stream: Celebrating life on the Beverley Lakes.” Saturday featured a special ceremony that began with Township of Rideau Lakes Mayor Ron Holman dedicating a tree to commemorate the Old Stone Mill’s 200th birthday. The ceremony included speeches from representatives of the mill as well as special announcements from various levels of government. MP Gord Brown announced a donation of roughly $96,000 from Heritage Canada’s Building Communities through Arts and Heritage program. On behalf of the Government of Ontario, MPP Steve Clark and representatives from the Ontario Trillium Foundation
announced a grant of $155,000. The money will be used to hire staff, develop exhibits and for other related programs and special events. Another set of special guests in attendance included several family members related to the mill’s last owner, Hastings Steele, who, in 1963, deeded the mill over to a group of four people with the idea that it be preserved. Bill Warren, one of Steele’s grandsons, worked at the mill in the 1940s. “Well, the mill isn’t as I remember it because it’s been restored to a more original state, to an earlier period,” said Warren. “I used to do the grinding at the mill. It was still popular back in the 40s because there were a lot of farmers around here.” Members from the Canadian Chapter of the Society for the Preservation of Old Mills (SPOOM) were also on hand for their Spring Millers’ Day to help celebrate the bicentennial. “These mills are an important part of Canadiana,” said SPOOM treasurer Maryanne Szuck.
“They’re important for our history, our heritage and for remembering our roots.” Saturday and Sunday also included activities for all ages, such as tours of the mill, an artisan craft show, a garden show, an antique road show, a silent auction, canoe tours, a petting zoo, pony rides and a sold-out dinner theatre show. The sounds of guns, drills and marching bands could be heard throughout the day as the Brockville Infantry and Fort Henry Guard patrolled downtown Delta. Bear, the Tinker, also entertained crowds by singing and playing music with his guitar, elbow pipes, flutes and bodhran. “Deltabration 2010 was two years in planning,” said Dann Michols, vicepresident of the Delta Mill Society. “I’m absolutely delighted by the turnout.” Built in 1810 by William Jones, the Old Stone Mill is the only surviving pre-1812 stone grist mill in Ontario. It was declared a National Historic Site in 1973 and further designated under the Ontario Heritage Act in 1978. The mill reopened in 2004 as a significant his-
torical site, and remains important for tourism to the village of Delta and the Township of Rideau Lakes region. According to curator Paul George, the Old Stone Mill receives anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 visitors annually. It is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until the Labour Day weekend. MORE REASONS TO DELTABRATE The fun is not over yet in Delta, as Deltabration 2010 continues throughout the summer. Events include a Father’s Day brunch at Delta United Church on Sunday, June 20, Canada Day festivities at Lower Beverley Lake Park and the Delta Fair, which runs from July 22 to 25. For a complete listing of 2010 Deltabration events, visit http://www.deltamill. org/deltabration/events. html.

Manuel Da Silva, CEO and chairman of Aquablue International, has secured a lawyer who is currently contesting the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) March 5 order which blocked Da Silva from selling or getting rid of funds, titles or other financial goods or products in his possession. “We will be back in court on the 30th of June to present our arguments,” writes Sylvain Théberge, spokesperson for the AMF, in an email. “Meanwhile, our investigation is still going on.” Théberge said the AMF’s arguments are about why the Quebec financial securities commission thinks the court decision is a good one, and why there is no reason to contest that, except to win time. The initial hearing was scheduled for sometime in mid-May, but was delayed because the bottled water company CEO didn’t have legal representation at the time. In a press release, one of the concerns regarding Da Silva was tied directly to the proposed plans in Smiths Falls, where he is accused of false representations. The release states it was highly unlikely the final purchase of the plant in town would hap-
pen. In its decision, the AMF is basing its decision on several concerns pertaining to the overarching absence of consultation with investors such as allegations Da Silva may have deposited funds from investors in his personal bank account and transferred a minimal amount of those funds back to Aquagold or Aquablue. The company’s website is offline and has been for weeks, and the plant number is currently out of service. Despite all of this, Da Silva told This Week on April 21 a press release would be coming forward regarding news about the troubled bottled water plant in Smiths Falls. This Week staff has still not received the release; Da Silva cannot be reached for comment. As of early December, the company hadn’t completed a lease-to-own agreement with Hershey and had not ordered equipment for the plant. Representatives from Hershey’s were in town in early January, holding closed door meetings, but no information was released to the public. Approximately $372,000 in liens have been filed against the Hershey-owned property. Keep reading This Week for further updates and keep checking back at yourottawaregion. com.

It’s been approximately one month since a group of six students at St. Luke Catholic High School began putting their math skills to use, and business is going swimmingly. While learning about spending and purchasing power in their Grade 11 workplace math class, a group of six students from the high school, along with their teacher, Carolyn Crosby, started Fair Wage Friday at St. Luke: the team is selling $6 T-shirts, coined as “thirdhand,” at lunch hour in order to promote awareness about sweatshops and unfair wages. Students can purchase a shirt and wear it on Fridays, in place of the regular school uniform. Launch day was on Friday, May 7. Since then, the group has moved into a former guidance counsellor’s office and each student is taking turns learning how to work the cash register. Sales, says group member John Petch,
have been going pretty well. “We have good sales,” he says. “We’re starting to show profit.” In the beginning, the crew decided to donate 25 per cent of their proceeds to World Vision. Now, they’ve upped that number to 50 per cent. “It’s a great experience for us,” says group member James Des Rosiers. In addition to a Facebook group called Third Hand Clothing, the group has also created 75 posters and has tacked them up around town. They also hope to get a website going next year. Petch is still hoping to take the idea with him to Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute, where he will be attending next year, and to possibly expand the program across the school board. The group will continue to sell the T-shirts until the end of the school year, on June 30. To contact a member of the group to purchase a T-shirt, email thirdhandclothing@ gmail.com.

Canada 55+ Games coming to SF in Aug. The following are briefs from the Town of Smiths Falls June 7 council meeting at 5 p.m. Councillors Rob Peters and Jack Traynor were not present at the meeting.
CRUISERS RECEIVE APPROVAL L a r r y H a r d y, Smiths Falls Police Service Chief, received authorization to pre-purchase two 2011 police cruisers, valued at $50,000. The purchase will save the town an additional $10,000 because the models the department requires as part of a package will no longer be available in the future. The cars were expected to be purchased under next year’s budget. They will be retrofitted next year to the tune of $8,000.
Cummings also said volunteers who would like to assist with fundraising are asked to come forward to help out with the project. For more information, call 613-283-4122, and ask to speak with Margo Loughren.

CANADA 55+ GAMES REPS PROVIDE A RUNDOWN OF EVENTS David Dargie, chair, and Laurence Bishop, executive director of the 2010 Canada 55+ Games provided an update to council about the approaching summer games. The City of Brockville is hosting the games, and one event is expected to take place in Smiths Falls: fivepin bowling at Smiths Falls’ Gratton Lanes. Anywhere from 140 to 160 participants are expected to take part in this event and these people are staying in town at the Comfort Inn, which, as Bishop noted, has a positive economic impact on the town. “Hopefully, they’ll be coming early and staying late,” he said. “Brockville can only accommodate 800 people. That means 1,200 people will be staying outside of Brockville.” Mayor Dennis Staples said the town will assist game planners in making the event successful. “Whatever we can do here in Smiths Falls … we’re here to do that,” he said. The games run from Aug. 24 to 27 and approximately 2,000 athletes are expected to participate. Events taking place include badminton, contract bridge, duplicate bridge, cribbage, and darts.
WATERFRONT TASK FORCE MEMBERSHIP APPROVED Eleven individuals were appointed to the waterfront task force for a term ending on Nov. 30. Those appointed by council are as follows: Irv Mazurkiewick, Chris Canning, B a r r y We b s t e r , Ron Stronski, Ryan Vandermeer, Ron Gemmell, Bill Paterson, Lois McLenaghan, Jeff Keyes, Greg Waters and Bev Hitchins.
ARENA FUNDRAISING UPDATE Close to $167,000 has been raised for the new arena, said Coun. Chris Cummings, who is also in charge of co-ordinating corporate donations for the initiative. Cummings said dressing rooms, seats and three halls are all available for sponsorship. So far, 100 out of 1,500 seats have been sponsored. The cost of sponsoring a seat is $200.
This is the first time the games will be held in Ontario; Brockville won the bid over Edmonton. For a complete list of events, visit http://www.canada55plusgames.com/.

Relay a time of reflection Each June, something big and special happens in Lombardy. What began as a fundraising event has grown into a magical celebration of life, a night of resolve to make a difference, continue to raise support and one night a year in which to formally remember those who have lost their battles with cancer. Yes, it’s Relay for Life time again. Participation involves walking in an inspirational 12-hour overnight event, as communities come together and fight to make cancer history. Without going into detail about how the Canadian Cancer Society needs this type of work for financial assistance, and how more research is needed to help eliminate the disease, simply put, the relay has grown into being one of the largest organized summer events in the entire region. But the relay is about more than facts associated with the disease. The feeling out there on that one night a year isn’t easy to put into words. Openness, mixed with urgency, coupled with an elation of being a part of the event, but still shrouded with the dark truth that not everyone is a survivor. It’s sad in this day in age that cancer has touched the lives of almost everyone in some way. That drives home the importance of such an event - not only to raise money, but to foster hope and support when dealing with a very scary reality. It is special to have such a large-scale event on the local scene and it should be celebrated, whether though participation, sponsorship or through stopping by at some point during the festivities to offer moral support. Kudos to the organizers, who have spent months planning this: your efforts will not go unnoticed.

REAL route maps promote biking MELISSA DI COSTANZO THIS WEEK
For all you cyclists out there, listen up and get your gear ready, because the Rideau Environmental League (REAL) has got a route map for you. A number of volunteers from REAL have compiled a map of suggested routes for both visitors and residents to help encourage and promote biking in and around town. “It’s been a long time coming,” says REAL president, Barb Hicks. “We encourage active transportation. People can do more biking and walking, as opposed to driving. “We’re doing this for residents and tourists. People don’t know their town. We’re encouraging them to

explore it.” REAL welcomes walking and biking because it produces fewer greenhouse gases, conserves fossil fuels, is healthier for participants and contributes to a sense of community, Hicks added. MAP SPECS The map is full of routes, which, as Hicks notes, are suggested routes to explore the area surrounding Smiths Falls. Each route is less than an hour and a half. In total, there are eight routes. Most routes are either departing or returning to the Beckwith Street Bridge, in the centre of town. Five routes are loops and some hook up to local trails, such as the Cataraqui and Rideau trails. The Cataraqui Trail is a shareduse trail which terminates in Smiths Falls. The Rideau
Trail was developed for hikers, but through Smiths Falls, it mostly follows road and paths that can be biked. Hicks stresses cyclists should use the routes at their own risk, and follow all safety rules, such as wearing a helmet, especially on busy streets such as highways 15, 29, 43 and Roger Stevens Drive. REAL has included links to various safety websites, such as the Young Cyclists Guide, on their website. Hicks says REAL welcomes suggestions about the map. “We’re trying to consult with everyone,” she explains. “We’ll modify it if people come up different routes.” Click on http:// w w w. r e a l a c t i o n . c a / cycling%20routes.html to print out your own copy of the map.

Notes From the Nest By: Nicki Hayes
: SFDCI~ a bird’s eye view
Redhawks At Tennis Many students from SFDCI played in the Tennis Tournament in Smiths Falls on Tuesday May 25th. Two Senior boys, Alex Smith and Chris Haines, played their ﬁrst game and won 6-1 against St. Johns. The two boys played against Brad Hamilton and Brandon Wilkinson and lost against them 61. When Brad and Brandon went to play against the St. John’s team, and they didn’t show up, Brad and Brandon won ﬁrst in their division. The Sr. Girls doubles Amy MclLvenna and Ainsley Saumure needed to win one game to move on, and they did so in their ﬁrst game, winning 6-0 automatically sending them into the next round. Playing against their rivals from St. Johns, the girls won 6-5. For Sr. Girls singles, there was only Carla Hogan and one other person. When the two girls played Carla won. One of the Sr. Mixed teams was made up of Vince Dufort and Lindsay O’Neil who won their ﬁrst game against St. Johns 6-0. They played their second game
against Sierra Cauley and Brett Costello.

Lanark County businesses can now tap into a whole new pool of money. The Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation, a local community-based organization dedicated to job creation through commercial enterprise, often helps businesses set up and expand with the help of loans from the federal and provincial governments and other sources. This past year, the corporation joined the Eastern Ontario Community Futures Investment Pool. The corporation can lend up to $250,000 to a business, but now that it is part of this pool, a further $350,000, up to a top amount of $600,000, can be lent out to area businesses. Interested businesses can apply for this expanded loan program starting this month. The corporation held its annual general meeting at the Beckwith Township
Sports Complex on June 3, where executive director John Doherty revealed that over the past year, the corporation had approved 13 loan applications worth $901,000. It declined four loans worth $603,000. The corporation also offers façade improvement loans, and four such loans were approved last year for $31,000 in total. “We think it’s a small program,” said Doherty. “But we see it as part of bringing downtowns back.” Another area in which local businesses need help is helping to deal with rising training costs. In the 2009-2010 year, the corporation put forward $118,000 towards skills training for local businesses. One business that took up the offer of help with skills training funding was Kilmarnock Enterprise. “Our training costs are phenomenal,” said Isabelle Belot-Graveline of Kilmarnock, a design engineering firm. “We try to encourage people to get as much training as possible… (because) when our guys are
sent out on a job site, they pretty much have to know it all. The training that goes into that is tremendous.” Doherty also trumped the local community economic development projects it has been involved with over the past 12 months, including: • Completing working on a trail development from the sports complex to a nearby school in Beckwith Township. • Completing a structural engineering report for the town hall auditorium in Carleton Place to conform to Ontario Heritage regulations. • New signage in Perth d i r e c t i n g t r a ffi c f r o m Highway 7 to the downtown core. • A major rehabilitation of the Rosedale Community Hall in Montague Township. • Completion of design and fabrication of entranceway signs to the Town of Almonte in Mississippi Mills. • Creating a public access internet point at a busy tourist park for wireless internet access in Smiths Falls.

Local doctors honoured by national president’s visit LAURA MUELLER THIS WEEK
Local medical practitioners had input into a national healthcare transformation policy when the president of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) visited Perth on May 27. Dr. Anne Doig met with approximately 20 physicians as part of ongoing discussions about issues facing doctors across the country. “Everything I hear from my colleagues expands my knowledge of what’s going on out there,” said Doig, a family physician from Saskatoon who was elected to lead Canada’s largest association of doctors for 2010. The association, which represents more than 70,000 physicians, lobbies the government on public health issues. While the discussion wasn’t open to the public, Doig said she hoped to get local doctor’s thoughts on the challenges facing rural doctors and particularly, the obstacles in recruiting doctors to rural areas – or if those challenges are as significant as they
are made out to be. “I’d really like to know what it’s like out in the field – maybe the healthcare shortage isn’t so acute,” she said, noting that the number of physicians per capita doesn’t indicate whether those doctors are general practitioners or specialists, and how they are distributed across the country. Outside urban areas, doctors are called on to share many duties, including emergency medicine. “It’s a family doctor, but it’s a different breed,” she said. The CMA is also looking at how wellprepared internationally trained doctors are for the rural medicine setting. In general, Doig said doctors who have trained and practised in foreign countries are more independent, self sufficient and better prepared for the rural environment they are likely to encounter in Canada. Doig said the CMA is also examining the issue of ongoing training for doctors who are separated from the medical academic community. While urban doctors often have access and frequent interaction with universities and learn about new techniques and
research, rural and remote doctors are more cut off from that exchange, Doig said. Doig also presented a blueprint for healthcare reform, including the CMA’s patient charter.
AREA DOCTOR HONOURED A Carleton Place physician, Dr. Donald Ferguson, was honoured with an Ontario Medical Association (OMA) award during the May 27 meeting in Perth. Doig was asked to do the honour of presenting the Glenn Sawyer Service Award to the long-time doctor and more recently, anesthesiologist. The award recognizes significant service to the OMA, medical profession for public at the community level. In his nomination, Perth’s Dr. Alan Drummond, president of the Lanark County Medical Society, stated, “I can think of no one within our county who is more deserving.” Ferguson graduated from Queen’s Medical School in 1964 and set up a practice in Carleton Place a year later. After several years of practise in the area, Drummond stated that Ferguson recognized a need for an enhanced level of anesthesiologist services in Saturday, June 19, 2010, 9:00 a.m. Lanark County and decidCivic #2250, County Road 31, Winchester, ON ed to return to school for two years of post-graduate 613-774-7000 or 1-800-567-1797 training at Queen’s and More than 300 vehicles and equipment from Federal Government and others the University of Ottawa. Primary list at: www.rideauauctions.com Ferguson was the chief of staff at the Carleton Place Hospital on two
separate occasions. He has provided general practitioner and anesthesiologist services in Carleton Place, Perth, Smiths Falls and Almonte. In addition to his family practice, Ferguson also provided general surgical service, including caesarean sections. Despite having retired in 2006, he still assists in the operating rooms of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital for general surgery and orthopedic programs. Beyond his medical service, Drummond stated that Ferguson has been a “great friend, mentor and inspiration to generations of Lanark County physicians,” calling him an “iconic county doctor.”

If you happen to find yourself strolling along the waterway, take a closer look at your surroundings, because you may notice some new additions dotting the landscape. Ten of 16 information pedestals, dubbed the Rideau Trail, have now been installed, pointing out assorted historical and culturally significant locations throughout the town. The remaining six pedestals are currently sitting in the town’s public works building, to be installed in the coming weeks. The pedestals, which extend from Heritage House Museum to the Bascule Bridge, point out a variety of local sites, including Ryan’s Park Racetrack, Old Sly’s rapids, Postwar Housing, the former
site of Frost and Wood Company Ltd., the Combined Locks, Beckwith Street and Beckwith Bridge, Victoria Park, and town hall. Each pedestal bears the town’s logo and a brief description of the site. Some depict both old and new images of the site. The project began roughly three years ago as the brainchild of Chuck Hudson, the town’s former community development officer. Since then, Heritage House Museum, Parks Canada and the municipal heritage committee have jumped on board. The province of Ontario provided financial assistance through the Ontario Small Town and Rural Development grant, which was designated for municipal projects along the waterfront. Coun. Chris Cummings, a member of the municipal heritage committee, says the proj-
Kids’ activities will be taking place from 7:45 to 9:30 p.m. They include face painting, science experiments and games, such as soccer, Frisbee and cards. Popcorn and balloons are free at the Smart Shop; bedtime stories and cookies will round off kids’ activities. Theme laps include: • 2 a.m. – Olympics (I am Canadian, Canadian or other countries). • 3 a.m. – Impersonator/famous faces. • 4 a.m. – Vega special occasions, wedding attire, Casino Royal (casino dealers/waiters/dancers). • 5 a.m. – Magic hour (participants can come on stage and show their magic tricks). • 6 a.m. – Pyjama party.
Coun. Chris Cummings displays one of two pedestals currently in Centennial Park. Ten of 16 informational pedestals have been installed around various sites in town.

ect came to fruition with the help of many dedicated volunteers. “The results are fantastic,” he says. “It’s good to see it come together.” And it’s not over yet. Cummings says plans are in the works to add another 13 pedestals to the town’s scenery over the next six years. These plans include the installation of pedestals at the Smiths Falls Public Library and at the Kilt and Castle. Cummings also says a pamphlet is in the works, which will point out these sites and incorporate walking tours of the town.

Area Info. Centre, which aims to share information in and around the area. If you have an upcoming yard sale or want to promote your business, join the group and post information. Councillors Robin Hawe and Chris Cummings have started up a group called Lets Bring the YMCA to Smiths Falls. The group has just over 670 members; recent posts include one by Hawe. It reads as follows: “I was at Queen’s Park yesterday, and I spoke with Minister Best. She is the Minister of Health Promotion, who we have been meeting with as we move with the YMCA. I can tell you that she and her deputy minister anxiously await our feasibility study report and seem quite interested in helping our community. I will keep you informed on our progress.” And just as a reminder: a consultant from DMA Planning and Management will be back in town on Tuesday, June 15 at 7 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95 to present the final report on the YMCA market research study.

If you live in the Middle Rideau area and are interested in its environmental health, then the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) is pleased to present the Middle Rideau Subwatershed Report 2009. This information-loaded report is the first in a new series to be prepared on a regular basis for each of the six subwatersheds (Middle Rideau River, Jock River, Tay River, Lower Rideau, Kemptville Creek, and Rideau Lakes) in the Rideau Valley Watershed. The report summarizes the health of the Middle Rideau by looking at four indicators: forest cover, wetlands, shoreline vegetation and surface water quality. The good health of the subwatershed is largely due to the good stewardship activities taking place on the land. Landowners are doing their part to improve, protect and restore the watershed’s natural features. These can be simple acts, such as keeping shorelines natural, to more complicated projects, such as municipal planning and infrastructure development decisions. The Middle Rideau drains 822 square kilometres and, as its name suggests, is nestled in the middle of the Rideau system. Water flows from the higher rocky lake country of the Rideau Lakes subwatershed into the flatter farmland of the Middle Rideau that includes communities such as Lombardy, Motts Mills, Smiths Falls, Jasper, Merrickville and Burritts Rapids. Water flows on from the Middle Rideau to the Lower Rideau at Burritts Rapids. One of the key services of the RVCA is to collect science-based information on how the watershed works. This information is used for decision-making at all levels (individual, family, municipal, county, provincial). These monitoring efforts help the authority better understand watershed trends and help focus resource management actions where they are needed the most. This project is part of the RVCA’s watershed management mission that recognizes the connections between local awareness, local concern and local action. The Middle Rideau River Subwatershed Report 2009 is a summary of the conservation authority’s findings, but more detailed information is available online through the catchment data sheets. For your copy of this report, or to view the catchment data sheets, visit www.rvca.ca and look under “What’s new,” or contact Megan Watters at 613-692-3571, ext. 1132. -Submitted by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority
