Immediately after the parade children will have the chance to meet Santa and his reindeer on Moroni’s Patio while the local merchants will have extended hours for the Black Friday on Saturday sales, with draws and treats. Don’t be surprised if the stores suddenly break into music with the Gananoque Holiday Chorus – Flash Mob singers. There will be a little bit of Christmas throughout the community.

PFLAG Canada draws attention to bullying: Challenges people to take stand Standing up against comments such as, “That’s so gay,” can be as simple as asking someone to say what they mean and not use “gay” as a synonym for “stupid,” “hard,” or boring. Challenging individuals to explain why they are using gay instead of the words they mean to say can also open up powerful conversations about stereotyping and targeting communities based upon misconceptions and misinformation. Having an adult ask students to clarify what they are saying and to challenge homophobic, transphobic and biophobic language in all its forms, sends a powerful message that all students are valued and that the targeting of a specific group will not be condoned. PFLAG Canada Brockville is also there to support members of the LGBTQ community as well as their friends, families and allies. As part of a national network, PFLAG Canada Brockville provides education, support, resources and information to anyone

who is interested in learning more about the LGBTQ and allied community and wants a safe and inclusive space to learn more. Who might use PFLAG’s services? A parent wanting to support their son or daughter through the “coming out process”. A business wanting to know how to make their workplace more inclusive to all their customers. An agency wanting to know more about the resources available in their community for LGBTQ people. A person coming to terms with their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. An educator who believes inclusion is

Theatre in Gananoque admission remains the same once again this year. Tickets are $10 per adults, $5 per child to a maximum of $25 per family. Tickets are available at the concert. It is tradition at all Choral Society concerts that the audience is offered refreshments after the concert (no charge). So there will be delicious Christmas goodies, snacks, coffee, punch, juice and more. This is an opportunity for audience and Choral Society members to visit and wish each other well. It is also a time for people to ask any questions they may have regarding becoming involved with the group. The group meets Tuesday evenings at Christ Church Anglican Parish Hall (Church Street), Gananoque. From 7:15 to 9 p.m. they meet during the fall, winter and spring and take the summers off. “Our purpose is to bring the

joy of singing to others and just generally enjoy singing ourselves,” she said. According to the Choral Society’s website, which lists the top 10 reasons to join, including “you get to sing in a group, opposed to alone in the shower”, “you don’t have to audition, or know how to read music”, and of course – the fun factor is listed as number one. The Choral Society will be providing the residents of Carveth Retirement and Long Term Care Home with a shortened concert, Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. There is no charge for this and it is intended for residents and perhaps visiting family members or friends. It is a very short concert to avoid disrupting the nightly routines of the residents. For further information about the Gananoque Choral Society please visit ganchoralsociety.com, call 613-382-8531 or email info@ ganchoralsociety.com.

Events - “That’s so gay.” Imagine hearing those words day in and day out. “That’s so gay,” over and over again. For many students those three words are a part of their daily reality as they move through the halls, sit in their classrooms and ride the bus home. According to Egale Canada’s Final Report on the First National Climate Survey on Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia in Canadian schools, 70 per cent of students reported hearing expressions such as “That’s so gay,” every day in their schools. As part of National Bullying Week, Nov. 17 to 23, PFLAG Canada Brockville would like to draw attention to bullying targeted at members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) community and challenge people to stand up against name-calling, verbal harassment and stereotyping of individuals based on their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

closed. “Last year was really successful,� he emphasized, saying this year the formula for the drive has remained the same with a few new additions to the lineup. So far progress has been strong – as of Nov. 17, 380 snowsuits had been collected which is approximately 30 per cent of the goal. Compared to last year on Nov. 20, 2012 only 355 snowsuits had been donated – or 27 per cent of the goal. With the colder weather having made its way into the region, Benoit thinks this may prompt further donations, especially with snow predicted in the weather forecasts.

The biggest reward is seeing the children when they come to pick up their snowsuits. Calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;chaos,â&#x20AC;? the children are as happy as if they were visiting a candy store. Distribution dates for the snowsuits include the Saturday that just went by (Nov. 23) as well as Nov. 30 and Dec. 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the 1000 Islands Mall Community Centres.

Business - The South Grenville Chamber of Commerce handed out some prestigious hardware at its annual awards banquet recently. Members and guests of the newly renamed Chamber, formerly the Prescott and District Chamber of Commerce, got together at the Cardinal Legion on Nov. 20 to honour those who have contributed significantly to the betterment of the community. Before the awards were handed out, though, the crowd was treated to a keynote address by Robert Caldwell, a former Prescott resident who now resides and works in New Hampshire. He spoke about growing up in a small town, the importance of education and the benefits of philanthropy. After that, EdwardsburghCardinal councillor Pat Sayeau, along with Angela Thompson, the Chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourism promotion coordinator, provided an update on ongoing efforts to boost tourism in South Grenville. Thompson screened a new promotional video, one which she herself produced, featuring all the sights, attractions and businesses that it is hoped will draw travellers and shoppers from throughout the region into Augusta, Edwardsburgh-Cardinal and Prescott. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tourism is one thing that can bring the Chamber and the municipalities together in one common cause,â&#x20AC;? said Sayeau. Then the awards were announced, beginning with the Mike Boyles Memorial Corporate Service Award, which is given to a business that has made a significant investment in its operations and which contributes considerably to the business community. This year, the Mike Boyles award went to the Canadian Tire in Prescott. The store recently completed a major expansion, increasing its inventory to 30,000 products, and upgraded the building, all in an effort to give customers an enhanced shopping experience. This past year, the Prescott store finished in the top 10 with respect to percentage increase in sales among all Canadian Tire stores in the country. The Prescott store also contributes generously to minor

I really do treasure it,â&#x20AC;? said Joanisse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an honour and a surprise to be nominated.â&#x20AC;? Next up was the Reverend Gerry Ring Memorial Community Service Award. This year, the honour was given to 17-yearold Prescott resident Bailey Whitehouse. A couple years ago, the high school student started to collect the 40 hours of volunteer work required to graduateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then kept on going. She has now amassed over 1,500 volunteer hours. Most of her work has been done through the Prescott

Legion, the Girl Guides and Air Cadets. Whitehouse has also earned bronze, silver and gold medals in the Duke of Edinburgh program and has been awarded a Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jubilee medal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This award is very special to me,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful feeling to know you have so much support in the community.â&#x20AC;? The final award of the evening was the Connie Dickey Memorial Youth Award. Forty years ago, Judith and Geoffrey Caldwell sponsored this award in memory of Dickey, a first-year university student who was murdered in Toronto in 1972. See AWARDS page 16

Leaving a legacy to help remember News - Grenville Mutual Insuranceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strong commitment to community was demonstrated with the recent completion of a major project to restore the Spencerville war cenotaph. The company had been located in Spencerville for more than a century before moving to Kemptville in January 2013. In June 2012, Ross Lincoln, Grenville Mutualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president/CEO, met with community leaders to discuss the idea of a legacy project. Although the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to nearby Kemptville would change Grenvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical presence, the directors and staff know that the historical roots and heritage will always remain within the village of Spencerville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each year Grenville Mutual actively supports good work done by committed people in commu-

nities across eastern Ontario. We believe strongly in recognizing that work whenever we can,â&#x20AC;? said Lincoln. The decision was made to restore the Spencerville cenotaph site located in the centre of the village, in front of the town hall. The cenotaph had long been in need of refurbishment and so Grenville stepped forward to provide the needed financial support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The company is proud to be responsible for making that happen,â&#x20AC;? said Lincoln. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new cenotaph is beautiful and Grenville feels humbled and honoured to assist with the improvement of such a sacred space for everyone to remember the war heroes of this region.â&#x20AC;?

Team Canada has also taken notice of Higgs’ talent, as the teenager was recently nominated to the National Development Team.

News - Some of the most dedicated residents and businesses in and around the Town of Gananoque were honoured for their commitment to the community at an awards celebration last week. “We have so many wonderful business people and entrepreneurs in this part of Leeds-Grenville,” said MP Gord Brown. Seven awards were handed out to those who have made a marked contribution to the 1000 Islands region and the Town of Gananoque during the 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber of Commerce awards celebration event. Rockport Cruises, a big draw for visitors to the region, took home the Business and Industry Award in recognition of its sterling reputation as a world-class leader in tourism. The Hal McCarney Tourism and Hospitality Award was presented to the radio station myFM 99.9. The Entrepreneur of the Year was Heather Howard, owner of Fox Run Retirement Residence. The award was presented by Craig Betts, of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, who called Fox Run a “real asset to the community.” “What (Heather) has done there is a really ambitious vision of what she wants to provide for the community,” he said. The prestigious Keeper of the Gates and Keeper of the Islands awards went to Brian Brooks and Kim Lunman respectively. The former was acknowledged for his work with the Gananoque Curling Club and the Gananoque Lions. He was quick to point out that he is little different from all the other volunteers nominated for the various awards.

Citizen of the Year The biggest award of the night was handed out last. Joe Pal, owner of the Ivy Lea Club and the Golden Apple, was named Citizen of the Year. The Toronto-based businessman and long-time summer resident of Gananoque has invested a great deal of time and money into his businesses and has demonstrated tremendous vision and leadership in his commitment to making the community a better and more vibrant place. The Queen’s University grad also gives generously to the Kingston General Hospital and to St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. Pal was not present at the awards ceremony but the honour was accepted on his behalf. MPP Steve Clark was there, though, and he remarked on just how robust the local business environment is in the Gananoque area and how individual businesspeople are to be credited for their contribution to the vitality and vibrancy of the region. “We do have some wonderful men and women and wonderful businesses that give their heart and soul to make the community what it is,” said Clark.

Take time to remember Dec. 5 horror

Events - Where were you on Dec. 6, 1989? Many of us may not remember where we were or what we were doing on that date. Sadly, though…there are hundreds, and probably thousands of people in our country who do….who will remember that very day every day for the rest of their lives; particularly, the students and the families of the students who were attending Ècole Polytechnique, an engineering school at the University of Montreal. Dec. 6 marks the 24th anniversary of what has been called the worst single day massacre in Canadian history. Fourteen women were killed by a lone gunman walking through the halls, carrying a semi-automatic rifle, identifying the reason for his crimes as simply that these women were feminists and they enraged him because they dared to pursue an education and training in a career traditionally held by men. Each year Leeds and Grenville hosts a memorial event to honour not only the women who lost their lives in Montreal but also for the women and children in this region who live with violence in their homes or who have been victims of violence in the past. This year’s event is being hosted by the Victim Issues Coordinating Committee of Leeds and Grenville at the Brockville Rowing Club on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. See REMEMBER page 7

News – Many community members, leaders and supporters were in attendance at the annual YMCA Peace Medal Presentation Breakfast that was held on Friday morning at the Royal Canadian Legion on Park Street, Brockville. YMCA CEO Sueling Ching kicked off the celebration with a welcome to all, and thanked those who came to share in recognizing the great efforts by people in the community. Happy Mireault of the YMCA of Northumberland presented information on how her YMCA, along with a group of other associations, have collectively supported efforts to educate both Canadians and Nicaraguans on each other’s lives. She described how Nicaraguans continue to struggle in an unstable and volatile environment which is rife with political, social, economic, and environmental challenges. Nicaraguans are resilient and gracious people, she shared; noting that it is the second poorest country in the region, next to Haiti. Support from the YMCA International Program has been steadily growing, and has seen deep ties formed. A two week youth exchange has continued to be supported over the past 10 years. There are currently three YMCA Youth centres in Nicaragua that are supported by the “Y”s here in Ontario. The Ontario Y group, who fund some of these programs, raises money through Peace Week workshops, Yoga for Peace, hosting guest speakers, and through support groups. These funds help aid programs in Nicaragua such as youth development, activities and farming support. To date, the program has touched over 30,000 people including 160 youth, 2,000 women and 30 families. Ruth Carter, supervisor of Youth Programs at the YMCA of Brockville and Area, initiated the Peace Medal presentation, as Ching introduced the 2013 nominees. The adult category included: Leigh Bursey works as a volunteer, active politician and key note presenter to passionately advocate on several issues impacting peace; poverty, hunger, social housing, anti-violence, inclusion and mental health. Kenny Harden works with children and youth helping them build their selfesteem, encouraging their best behaviour and leading by example. He has been known to play guitar to raise funds for single moms, donating money to the homeless and recently went on a mission to France called the power to change.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Community thanked for strong support of 2013 Poppy Campaign DEAR EDITOR:

Once again, this year’s Poppy Campaign was very successful. I would like to thank the following five stores – Sears, Canadian Tire, Home Depot, SuperStore and Walmart – for allowing our volunteers to sit during the campaign. Many thanks to all the other businesses that allowed the Brockville Legion Branch 96 Poppy Campaign volunteers to distribute Poppies during our campaign, which ran from Oct. 25 to Nov. 9, 2013. I would like to thank the many volunteers who helped with distributing Poppies, sitting at tables, counting and rolling money, preparing the wreaths for distribution and many other jobs that needed

to be done during the campaign. And the members of the community, thank you for your generosity. Without your co-operation we could not have had such a successful Poppy Campaign in 2013. Remembrance Day, Nov. 11, has a special meaning to us and we participate in the Poppy Campaign to remember and assist those who have fought to give us the freedom we enjoy. We will be looking forward to your commitment again in 2014. Thank you once again for all your support. Yours sincerely, Don Bain Poppy Campaign Chairman

$94.4 billion of indulgence Editorial – An interesting figure came to light recently that Canadian teenagers spend $100 billion annually and yet earn a meagre $5.6 billion. Where does all this money come from? Their parents, grandparents, robbing banks…? Perhaps this figure is some sort of mistake. Back in the day, when you had to get a job at the tender age of 12, spent hours studying to earn a good grade because tests were hard, read books (not to be mistake for Facebook) for entertainment and spent the majority of your time outside mastering the monkey bars, people actually had the ambition to do things. Giving does not always equal generosity. Sometimes it creates an enabling environment. Modern parents must rise up and together, in one booming voice, say ‘enough is enough.’ No more paying your kids phone bills, or lending them your car or handing over $20 bills on a regular basis. By sticking together, parents can reverse this horrendous trend of youthful consumerism. When kids have to work for their money, they’ll respect it more and therefore spend less. It’s a rather simple equation that parents seem to have forgotten. It is a parent’s responsibility to provide shelter, clothing, food and love. If you do that, then stop. Going back to the basics and keeping things simple is the only way for the human species to alter the damaging effects of the credit system and extreme consumerism. Having said all of that, there are many youth and teens in this readership area, who have proven themselves to be responsible in more ways than one. Proven themselves to be leaders of the future. Starting initiatives, giving back to their communities, doing well in school. The message for parents is – the buck stops here. Teach your children the value of money sooner rather than later.

You made do or you did without in Depression years Lifestyle - How often I had begged Mother to find the few pennies it would take to buy just one bar of store-bought soap. But there was always a better place for her egg money, she’d say. And besides, there was nothing wrong with the bars of home-made soap she churned out once or twice a year. As well as my loathing for the homemade soap, was my absolute dislike for the days Mother put aside to make it! That seemed to happen Spring and Fall. It couldn’t be too hot, or too cold. Winter had yet to settle in that year I remember with such clarity. The summer kitchen was still being used to store things, but soon it would be too cold to be nothing more than a place to pile the wood. And once the snow came, it was through the summer kitchen we went to get rid of as much snow off our feet as possible, before coming into the kitchen. Mother announced at breakfast that morning that Audrey and I were

expected to hurry home from school because we would be putting supper on the table. “I’m making soap today,” she said. She had been saving lard from the fried bacon, roasted pork and anywhere else she could find a spoonful or two of fat. By the time the soap day rolled around, about four small honey pails of fat sat on an old table in the summer kitchen at the ready. The tin of Gillette’s Lye was already bought at Scott’s Hardware in Renfrew, and we children were warned every day not to even touch the tin it came in, so deadly it was! “Poison. And it will burn

a finger to the bone,” Mother warned. Every time I walked through the summer kitchen, I looked at the yellow and black lettered tin of lye like it alone had started the First World War. The containers Mother used to make the soap were big square black tins, much like the cookie sheets that stood on edge in the bottom of the kitchen cupboard. But these were shallow, and much larger, and as black as your boot. Even before we went to school, Mother would have started into the soap making. The tins (usually there were at least three in use at a time) were spread out on the old wood table in the summer kitchen. The kettle would be boiling on the Findlay Oval, and Mother would take it to the summer kitchen and half-fill the black tins with hot water. I would always hope we would still be home when she added the lye. I both hated and was entranced with that step in soap-making. Mother would pry off the lid with a knife and evenly pour the

lye over the hot water. And great gusts of steam would come off the tins, not from the hot water which would cool off almost immediately, but from the lye doing its dastardly deed with the water. There was an old wood spoon, with a very long handle, that was used for nothing else but stirring the lye into the water. It had a piece of binder twine through the little hole in the handle, and when not used for soap-making, hung in the summer kitchen, so that it wouldn’t accidentally be used for something that would be put in our stomachs. The fact that Mother wore a pair of Father’s old work gloves confirmed in my mind how deadly was the lye. We were never around long enough to see the next step, but we knew the little honey pails, which would have been sitting on the back of the cook stove to turn to liquid, would be brought close to the table, and once the lye had been melted into the hot water, the lard would have to be stirred into the mixture.

one tray Mother would drop in a few drops of vanilla. That tray would be used for our baths and face-washing. My sister Audrey said the hardest part of soap making, was trying to blend the fats into the water and lye. Sometimes it took hours. And I would picture in my mind Mother with Father’s old work gloves on, stirring and stirring and making sure not a drop would touch her skin. By the time we got home from school, the big black trays of lye, water and fat, would have gelled and hardened, at least that was Mother’s hope. But sometimes, it seemed to take forever for the pans to set well enough to be cut into bars. And while that was happening, Mother constantly jumped up from the supper table and went out to the summer kitchen to press a finger to the mould to see if it was ready to cut. I could never figure out how the See MARY page 10

time the evening was well on its way, Mother would bring the trays onto the kitchen table which had been spread out with copies of the Renfrew Mercury, and with the sharpest knife in the house, she would cut the soap into bars. Sadly, no matter how hard Mother worked to melt the lye, there was always a few pieces left that didn’t succumb to the

hot water, and it wasn’t unusual at all, when washing, to have a piece of lye scrape across your body, leaving a scratch like one made by a mad tom cat! My sister Audrey and I and Mother were the only ones to use the soap made with a dash of vanilla, but as far as I was concerned, the vanilla did little to take away the strong smell of Gillette’s Lye.

Youth invited to submit works for “My Brockville” Arts - The Brockville Museum would like to invite local creative young people to submit original works depicting the theme “My Brockville” to be exhibited at the Brockville Museum this winter. Youth may choose from a variety of media to express this year’s theme, from the written word, to pictorial, to sculptural, to music and video, and everything in between. The creative works will be reviewed by museum staff and volunteers and the best works from various age groups will be featured in a special exhibition curated by the museum’s director, Natalie Wood. Youth whose work is chosen for exhibition will be invited to attend a gala opening event to view their works on display. The community will be able

Bystanders are key to snuffing out bullying: speaker The bullies themselves, 90 per cent he said, are average kids who do well in school and have a lot of friends. A trait that exists in all bullies however, he said, is their strong desire for attention. So, for instance, when bullying is taking place online, he stressed to not reply to the bully. He cautioned students about what they put on the internet. “We sometimes put ourselves in harm’s way.” Pointing to the future, and the desire to attain good paying jobs after high school and post-secondary education – Jordan warned students of the consequences when posting to social networks. Employers usually do their research and check out any potential new employees. Those who feel they are being bullied should find the courage within themselves to speak with a trusted adult, whether it is a teacher or counsellor, he noted. “They want to help you. They just can’t if they don’t know what’s going on.” And looking towards reducing bul-

By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

News - Bystanders are a key ingredient in creating a powerful blaze that is bullying. It takes three elements to create fire – ignition, fuel and oxygen; bystanders are the oxygen that feeds bullies, according to Jim Jordan, motivational speaker and president of Report Bullying. His message, with an emphasis on the bystander, has been delivered to nine of Leeds and Grenville’s high schools, including St. Mary Catholic High School, Nov. 19. Jordan was brought to the area as part of the annual United Way of Leeds and Grenville Youth Summit, for National Anti-Bullying Week (Nov. 18 to 22). He has travelled Canada and the United States giving this message. Keeping students attention by peppering magic tricks throughout, as well as videos and incorporating audience games, Jordan’s presentation was, “very good,” something to which “kids are responsive,” noted Joan Hodge of the United Way. “We all learn from it,” she said. “He concentrates on the bystander and we can all be that bystander.” He started out by asking the audience of Grade 7 to 10 students if they have witnessed fellow students being wrongfully gossiped about, students being shoved or punched, students receiving cruel text messages, verbal insults, lies posted on Facebook, students being mimicked or receiving mean stares, or being excluded from groups. Students raised their hands for each. Jordan stressed he doesn’t mean these are the actions of a bully if perhaps it is simply a one-time action from a youth who might be having a bad day. Rather, these would be repeated actions that are considered bullying behaviours. Bullying has a widespread impact on victims. He pointed to statistics that indicate 15 per cent of school absenteeism is related to bullying and that one out of 10 high school dropouts are due to students being bullied. Stressing the three main elements

lying within school, the solution is simple, he stated. “One student can reduce bullying and violence,” Jordan charged. If there is no oxygen there is no fire, if there are no complacent bystanders then there can be no bullying. Bystanders, when complacent, are also complicit, he said. And complicity equals guilt. “Take the oxygen from the bully,” he said encouraging students to speak up. Tell an adult, or try peer to peer intervention – simply walking up to the bully and asking them to knock it off. “Be part of the problem by saying nothing or be part of the solution by speaking up.” Integrity is all about doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, he said. “So many students are worried about doing the right thing and about what other people think.” For more information about the United Way of Leeds and Grenville please visit http://www.uwleedsgrenville.org and for further details about Jordan please visit reportbullying. com.

News – More than 100 people attended the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 96 Remembrance Dinner on Friday, Nov. 8. In addition to the social hour, a delicious roast beef dinner was prepared and served by the Ladies Auxiliary Branch 96. The evening program consisted of opening ceremonies, guest speaker Lt. Col. S. Herron, along with a presentation of awards and service pins. “I’m not a comedian, so I cannot entertain with any comedy; I’m not a politician and I’m not an academic,” said Herron. “I am however a soldier. The more I thought about it, I thought maybe it would be appropriate on this evening of Remembrance to share with you my experiences in Afghanistan.” He told those present about his arrival in Afghanistan, the various duties he assumed and what he observed of the Canadian contingent, while there. “I can report to you that the Canadian Army, command and staff are second to none anywhere in the world,” said Herron. Herron described his tour as having long days, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., six days a week with Sunday being a shorter day. He also mentioned the Brockville Rifles presence in Afghanistan. “In closing I would like to remind you that the Brockville Rifles deployed 40 personnel as part of Canada’s contribution to Afghanistan,” offered Herron, “including one individual who has just returned and one that is currently there. The Royal Canadian Legion is doing great work (supporting veterans) in this regard and I encourage all of you to continue your support for the Legion in the years to come.” When Herron finished his speech, Branch 96 past president Don Bain reported and thanked the volunteers for their assistance during the Poppy Campaign. “In 2012 on the 8th November, we raised $27, 325,” said Bain. “This year on the same date, November 8, we raised $29,899.52 and there’s more to come.” As the membership chair Barry Elliott read out the names and years of service, it was evident that people in the Brockville area are proud to be part of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch

Students thrive in Summerwork$ program By DOREEN BARNES

Business – Seven Career Services students came together with their teachers and employers on Friday, Nov. 8, at C.J.’s Banquet Hall to celebrate the success of the Summerwork$ pilot project. “Career Services created a pilot project where we subsidized wages for four students to have summer employment for an eight week period in the summer,” said Career Services employment developer Ryan Billing. “We expanded to eight students in total after the interview process, as we recognized the quality of the candidates. These students were really committed to the program.” This project was designed for students with disabilities or barriers. “This program would not have taken off without

the schools, Brockville Collegiate Institute, Thousand Islands Secondary School and St. Mary Catholic High School being involved,” indicated Billing. “I remember going in January to pitch the concept and they really embraced it (program) and they took the time to work with us so the best matches were made.” As well, Billings thanked the employers for opening their doors to this pilot project. Students applied, were pre-screened and interviews were conducted. Each student was given techniques for resume development, WHMIS and safety training for the workplace, along with training and job coaching; all towards securing a job and earning a wage. “There were opportunities for students to receive educational co-operative credits,” said Billing. “Two

of the students in the program met (the criteria) and this counts towards their diploma.” Career Services staff, teachers and employers worked together with students to address their strengths and weaknesses with continued encouragement and personal job development. Over 15 different community employers were contacted about this program with hopes that each would assist in the future career paths of the students and a potential for employment when the program ended. From this number, the employers selected as a match to the Summerwork$ students’ skills were Canadian Tire, Shoppers Drug Mart, Kampus Kids, Career Services and the City of Brockville. The hours worked were from 20 hours a week to

40 hours a week with the wage being fully subsidized at $10.25 per hour. These eight students worked about 1,500 hours during those weeks. At the conclusion of the pilot project, two students were hired on a part-time basis by the employers and another student’s position is being finalized. “A job is not just about going to do something and getting a pay cheque,” indicated Billing. “There’s a lot more to a job than that. It’s about relationships, skills, growth and the list can go on and on. With a job like this, you realize the value of how the job pertains to all areas of life.” By all accounts the Summerwork$ program was a success.

Composer and music teacher Howard Alexander, Cambridge history professor Dr. Andrew Preston, Canadian Forces Lieutenant and Afghanistan war veteran Tamara McBratney, and Chef Katie Brown were inducted into the Hall of Excellence during a ceremony in the auditorium. The school also presented its Grades 9-11 faculty awards as well as BCI scholar awards to students who earned averages of 90 per cent or higher. A longtime teacher with the Upper Canada District School Board, Alexander was honoured for his success as a professional musician as well as his work to improve the local arts scene in the Thousand Islands area. In an inspiring speech, Alexander spoke about the importance of contributing to your community. He recalled how he was not the best student during his years at BCI, but said the experience taught him how connecting with others and contributing to community, can lead to a rich and satisfying life. He called on students to give back so we can all live better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I graduated Grade 13 with a 62 per cent average, just enough to sneak into Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University, which back then had much lower standards than it does now,â&#x20AC;? he said with a grin. He went on to graduate from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, one of the premier academic institutions in Canada, with a music and education degree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś Now academics will get you a job. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important, no question. But being involved with your community will gain you a satisfying life.â&#x20AC;? The Brockville resident has enriched his life through his involvement with everything from the Riverside Singers to the Arts Task Force for the City of Brockville. And it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t difficult to start, he said. He called on students present to â&#x20AC;&#x153;think smallâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to do something attainable to improve their community based on their passions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Find something that interests you and that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re passionate about and then get involved,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you can leave your community a little better than it was when you came in, you will have a rich and wonderful life.â&#x20AC;?

Need some hostess gift ideas? admit that this solution is pretty hackneyed! Here are a few gift ideas if you want to give a slightly more original gift to the people welcoming you into their home. First of all, take the time to wrap the gift in some pretty paper. It doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive; a gift worth between $20 and $30 is quite acceptable. If you know your hostess well, you could offer her something personal that will allow her to relax once the party is over. This could include a gift pack of body-care products, a relaxation CD, a restorative hand cream, some room scent, or some comfortable loungewear.

The advantages of

If your host and hostess are real epicureans, you could always give them an edible gift. Locally produced products are always appreciated, and you’ll certainly have lots of choice: try a pretty bottle of raspberry salad dressing, ice cider, a selection of herbal teas, crab terrine, or wild strawberry jam. If they love to cook, give them a kitchen accessory, such as an oil and vinegar set, escargot plates, a serving dish, pretty glass markers, a practical spice rack, table napkins, or a glass pitcher with a spout.

It’s not always easy to find an original hostess gift.

The rewards of shopping locally outweigh the rewards you get from saving a couple of dollars. The stores in your hometown have everything you need and more. Shopping locally encourages local prosperity.

Events - There is snow on the ground and Christmas is around the corner. But before people rush out to the big box stores or to their office Christmas party, they will have a chance to experience how Christmas was celebrated in days of yore at Spencervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Country Christmas Remembered.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It is the ninth annual edition of the event, which has grown in popularity year after year, and this season, there is even more to see and do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to provide an alternative to modern-day, commercial events,â&#x20AC;? says Sandra Ketchum, one of the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really trying to emphasize the oldtime character.â&#x20AC;? A Country Christmas Remembered begins on Friday, Dec. 6 and runs to Sunday, Dec. 8, and promises a relaxed and charming festive celebration for the whole family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to create a really familyfriendly atmosphere,â&#x20AC;? says Ketchum. While all the old favourites have returned, this year, a number of new attractions have been added to the lineup of events. The Christmas Country Market is back. It will be located in the Drummond Building and will be much larger this year, offering shoppers a more diverse selection of unique giftsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; from gourmet, locally-produced foodstuffs and produce to works of art and hand-made crafts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shopping with a difference,â&#x20AC;? says Ketchum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of an oldfashioned experience.â&#x20AC;? Kids can get in on the experience, too, over at the Spencerville Mill, where the wildly popular childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shopping emporium will once again be held. Any youngsters wanting to get their parents and family members a special something will be escorted into the emporium by an elf, who will help them pick gifts from a wide selection of items donated by generous local residents and businesses. Even with an armload of gifts, get-

ting around Spencerville is made easy by the roving horse-drawn carriages that will shuttle people to and from all the different events and attractions. Outside the Drummond Building will be something new â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Market Courtyard, where Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Cuisine will be serving up gourmet waffles and grilled-cheese sandwiches next to a roaring bonfire. More food will be served up at the All-Day Kitchen Party, held at the Lions Hall, where visitors can partake of a delicious lunch of soup or beef stew while listening to live music. Anyone wanting a little spice can treat themselves to some fine Indian cuisine at Roshanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CafĂŠ, located inside the Drummond Building. St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s/Knox Presbyterian Church will be serving a turkey dinner on Saturday at 5:15, and Spencerville United Church will be hosting an all-day lunch and Christmas Bazaar on Saturday from 10-5 p.m. After eating well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time again to take in the sights and attractions of A Country Christmas Remembered, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots more to do. There will be childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entertainment in the Council Chambers by Paula Lund and by Rock the Arts puppets, and the ever popular Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Workshop will be set up all weekend, complete with the elaborate model train display that captures the imagination of kids and adults alike. For kids wanting to visit with Santa in person, there will be a chance on Saturday morning during the popular Breakfast with Santa. And for any adults wanting to try their hand â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or feet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at English Country Dancing, there will be a demonstration upstairs in the Town Hall. Sometimes people, old and young, need a little break from celebrating, and at the Spencerville Public Library, little ones will be treated to Cuddles and Stories, where they (and their parents) can warm up and relax a little. Another new attraction this year is the Art Ramble, which will feature displays of paintings, sculpture, pho-

tography, fibre arts, pottery and other creative works at three of Spencervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art galleries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ArtScene, Dutch Hill and Pottery Plus. As exhaustive a lineup as the preceding may be, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still not all â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Country Christmas Rememberedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has to offer. There will be ponies and alpacas provided by Big Sky Ranch, old-fashioned kids games and contests, wandering carollers and a big kick-off celebration Friday evening in the Village Square. It will feature a parade and a spectacular fireworks show provided by Hands Fireworks. It starts at 7 p.m. and is free of charge. The full lineup of events and details as to location and admission can be found online at: www.acountrychristmas.ca. A family passport, which provides admission to everything all weekend, can be purchased for $15. Single passports will cost only $5. Passports can be purchased at Hubbard and Co. at 15 Spencer St. or online at www.acountrychristmas.ca. Food is not included as part of the passport and must be purchased separately. Tickets for the turkey dinner at St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s/Knox Presbyterian Church must be purchased in advance, before Dec. 6, and are available for $15 each at Hubbard and Co. at 15 Spencer St. or online at www.acountrychristmas. ca.

Students at Brockville Collegiate Institute were their participation in a safe driving campaign sponthrilled to learn they had earned $25,000 through sored by State Farm Insurance.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Celebrate My Driveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sees BCI rewarded $25,000 By CONAN de VRIES

News - Students at Brockville Collegiate Institute pulled out all the stops in supporting a safe driving campaign sponsored by a local insurance company. And their efforts were recently rewarded. On Nov. 18, students gathered in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auditorium for a presentation by local State Farm Insurance representatives, who brought with them a cheque for $25,000. The generous reward was the result of the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; participation in a program called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Celebrate My Drive,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a campaign launched by State Farm Insurance throughout the United States and Canada and intended to promote safe driving among young people. Students had to make an online pledge to observe safe driving practices and were encouraged to get other students to do the same. By the end of the campaign, BCI students had collected more than 15,000 pledges. Much of the enthusiasm for this campaign is derived from the recent tragic passing of Aaron Stevenson. The Grade 11 student was killed in a hit-and-run over the Labour Day weekend, and it was his friends who took the Celebrate My Drive cam-

The theme for the campaign, emblazoned on the t-shirts all the kids were wearing during the cheque presentation, was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;2n2â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; meaning two hands on the wheel and two eyes on the road. Students throughout North America committed to not only this but to taking seriously the privilege of a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence and making responsible decisions out on the road. More than 3,500 schools participated, and BCI finished in the top 30 among schools with 750 or fewer students. Next year, the campaign will launch anew and all who participated this year are eager to do so again in 12 monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a one-time occasion,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Newman, one of Brockvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two State Farm Insurance brokers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Next year, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be an opportunity to do it again.

Everyone in the auditorium appreciated that the reward was given and received with Stevenson top of mind, and teacher Heather Lisney outlined how his passing had inspired the way in which the winnings would be used. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to spend this money in a way that honours who Aaron was,â&#x20AC;? said Lisney, with Aaronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, Willy and Kelly, sitting in the auditoriumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front row. The money will be put towards a pedestrian safety program, a fund to help less fortunate students take part in driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education and other driving safety promotions. The money will also be used to support the Aaron Stevenson Music Fund, which currently boasts a $14,000 balanceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;money raised entirely through public donations. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music department will also benefit from some of the money, through a program Lisney calls â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Keep on Drummingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, in recognition of Stevensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent for and interest in the instrument. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to put some of the money towards the music department so that (Aaronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) sound will echo through the halls now and forever,â&#x20AC;? said Lisney.

SAFETY TIPS Heating: Generators should not be brought inside the home for any reason.

estingly enough when they were first being considered as a mandatory feature in the US (they have been law there since 2007) car makers were pushing to use a speed sensor on each wheel to determine any pressure loss (tires get smaller as they lose air and their speeds change) but US regulators forced automakers to use the tire pressure sensing system we have today. They cost anywhere from $65 to $125 each and won’t necessarily fit on plain steel rims. In my day job at a local dealership I speak to hundreds of customers every year regarding winter tires and have sold literally thousands of sets of winter tires and rims over the years. While tire pressure sensors are an important safety feature, none of my customers have ever chosen to use them on winter tire and rim packages (yes I explain the pros and cons to each customer). What these customers have chosen to accept is the responsibility we all had before the tire pressure sensing systems came out; we use a tire pressure gauge (available at any auto store for around $10-$15) and check our tires frequently throughout the winter. It only takes a few moments and should be done every few weeks or so and especially before heading out on a long trip.

Having a set of dedicated winter rims has its advantages. It keeps your summer rims (especially if they’re alloys) from being exposed to winter salt and grit which can cause surface pitting and finish peeling. It also reduces the cost of seasonal tire changeovers. Depending on the costs of specific winter rims and your shop’s tire change-over fees, it usually takes at least four winters to break even cost-wise by using winter rims instead of swapping tires on your summer rims. It’s interesting that most of the latest safety gear on cars like tire pressure sensing systems, collision mitigation systems, lane departure and blind spot warnings all came about because collectively we as drivers have given up part of our responsibility to drive and maintain our cars in a safe manner. None of these systems would be needed if we simply did things ourselves like check our blind spots before lane changes or check our own tire pressures or leave enough distance between us and cars around us according to road and traffic conditions.

Lifestyle - “Hi Brian, I heard you on Lake 88 FM radio recently and I have a question. I will be in Florida for three months (January through March). I had intended not putting on my snow tires and rather waiting for decent weather to leave after Christmas. Is this a sensible approach? You also mentioned a better all season tire which I would consider next year. What should I look for?” Thanks for your help, Scott Hoping for good weather and road conditions from here to Florida during winter months is a risky game of playing the long shots. I’d recommend winter tires before making the trip and you may be able to leave them on while down south depending on the amount of driving you’ll be doing. For anything less than 5,000-7,000 km you shouldn’t have too much wear on winters, but anything more and you should consider swapping over to summers (all-seasons) during your time south. Keep in mind that winter tires have less grip on warm wet roads but are much better than summers on cold snowy roads. The 12-month or all-weather tires such as the Goodyear Triple-tread series are compromises. They won’t last as long as all-seasons/summers and they won’t provide all the traction of a true winter tire and they aren’t available in all sizes. “Hi Brian, First of all I would like to thank you for your educational and great columns. I am a driver that needs to read such a column and I have learned much from it. I am attaching a letter for your information that I recently mailed to Honda Canada. It is self explanatory and will give you an idea of my dilemma. I hope it is not too long, however, with your knowledge you will be able to grasp my problem very quickly. It is about the tire sensors that are put on some of their cars as a safety feature and when you read my letter I hope you will understand my annoyance with them. By the way, I have asked my service person at my Honda dealership if they had ever had other customers angry with this and they said that yes many customers are very unhappy. Have you heard of this problem? With all that in mind, how important is it to have rims for both summer and winter tires e.g. is it o.k. for me to do what I have been doing and use the same rims for both and have them changed twice a year? I am afraid that over time I will lose the tight fit that should be there. I look forward to your advice and thank you.” SM Thanks for your readership, kind comments and a copy of your letter to Honda (it detailed our reader’s displeasure with the cost of adding tire pressure sensors to winter rims). You are correct in that tire pressure sensors are a major headache for many consumers. Even without the winter tire issue, these sensors are prone to having their valve mechanisms seize because some designer forgot that when you combine different metals in the valve and its casing (brass and aluminum) and they are exposed to salt and moisture (think Canadian winter roads) they seize.

A Christmas Carol a visual and musical treat for all ages Arts - The Christmas switch has been turned on at Morrisburg’s Upper Canada Playhouse where a huge cast of actors and singers are getting ready to put audiences in the holiday spirit with their magical and musical production of Dickens A Christmas Carol. “It’s designed to be entertaining,” says artistic director Donnie Bowes.

“After all, it is a ghost story.” The show comes in at one and a half hours and is staged on a huge revolving set where the action is continuous, drawing the audience into Scrooge’s timeless journey to discover the true meaning of Christmas. “It’s a visual and musical treat,” adds Bowes. “The kind of holiday show families look for at this time of year. We all

know he gets there in the end. But we love to see it all unfold as part our own Christmas tradition.” The show culminates with a fabulous live concert of traditional carols and festive dances to celebrate the redemption of Ebenezer Scrooge. Starring Richard Bauer, Doug Tangney, Jamie Williams, Bruce Tubbe, Jessica Vandenberg,

Warren Bain, Ryan Jacobs, Meredith Zwicker, Jody Osmond and a team of local brothers, Conor, Gavin and Liam Veinotte.

troduced at the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce Small Business Trade show in late October, the tourism staff is extremely pleased with the interest the ornament has generated. The chamber trade show was an appropriate choice for a launch as the ornament is fabricated by a small, Ontario company. “We are extremely pleased we were able to add this beautiful piece to our souvenir offerings for visitors and residents, the ornament is quintessential Canadian,” remarked Steve Weir, tourism manager. “Promoting Brockville and the 1000 Islands takes on many forms including souvenir merchandise.” Each ornament begins as a real object from nature. The original leaf remains preserved inside. After careful selection and preparation the leaf is electroplated with bronze to give it strength and durability. Three finishes are available; gold, silver and iridescent and are namedropped “Brockville”. Every ornament is as unique as the maple leaf it is created from.

Some things are best left to the experts calls at any time? Or, screen callers to figure out if they are serious candidates? Not everyone who calls is even suitable to walk through your home, but how do you tell? It’s who you know – Your realtor will ensure information about your home is relayed to a vast network of realtors and potential homebuyers in your market. The greater the exposure your home receives, the more likely you are to find a buyer. More than meets the eye – A realtor will know the details of similar homes bought and sold in your area. He or she

will know why a comparable home sold for less, or more, than the home you’re considering. Going in with a lower offer without knowing the full details behind some of the other sales in your neighbourhood, may result in a ‘no sale.’ For what it’s worth – Setting a sales price is one of the most difficult and yet critical steps in the home-selling process. This is an area that requires extensive knowledge and training as well as access to sophisticated market analysis. Most “do-it-yourselfers” end up choosing an inaccurate price for

their home. If you set your price too high, many prospective buyers will be frightened off without even looking at the property - too low, and you could miss out on thousands of dollars. A realtor will work with you to decide upon and negotiate a realistic price. It’s business – When an offer comes in, emotions can run high with so much money on the line. This is why direct seller-to-buyer deals often end in disaster. Realtors know how to keep it professional and are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with buyers.

Selling a home takes more than just hanging a “For Sale” sign. The majority of homeowners simply don’t have the time, skill or experience required to carry out the organized, step-bystep approach that selling a home requires. A realtor can help you sell your home in the least amount of time and for the best possible price.

Preparing your home for winter News - Winter has not even officially begun, yet it already feels like the long haul of the season is upon us. With remnants of fall still lingering, now is a good time to take advantage of suitable weather conditions to winterize your home. “Preparing your home for winter will make your surroundings more comfortable during these months, but you’ll also lighten your load come spring,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “Winter can wreak havoc on backyards, roofs and pipes, all of which can be pretty annoying, especially if you plan on selling your house in the spring.” By investing some time and effort now, your home will be in much better shape come spring, advises Dorner. “Then, if you do list your home, all that you’ll need to worry about is some general maintenance and staging.” Here are some tips to prepare your home for winter: Indoor spaces: Check smoke alarms and carbon

monoxide detectors, Have the furnace inspected to ensure it is operational, safe and as energy-efficient as possible, Plug hidden leaks most commonly found around holes where pipes, vents, or electrical conduits run through the walls, ceiling, and floors, Protect pipes from freezing and bursting by wrapping them in foam tubes, Add insulation in rooms that need it, like the attic. Outdoor spaces: Check windows and doors for cracks around the framing; fix the caulking if you notice any cracks or separations, Clean gutters to prevent clogging and potential roof and wall/basement leaks, Cover air conditioning unit with a piece of plywood to protect it from falling ice and leaves, Drain hoses and outdoor pipes; turn off outside water supply, Cover plants and shrubs with tarps or burlap to protect them from wind

damage and prevent the roots from freezing. Dorner adds, “If your home is considered a ‘new home,’ remember that many issues may be covered by your warranty; things like defects in the electrical, plumbing and heating systems, and major structural damage. Be sure to take care of all regular season-

News - In an era of DIY (do-it-yourself) thinking, it is easy to make a case for doing just about anything yourself. Thanks to the internet, accessing medical, legal and financial advice has never been easier, not to mention free. But is it necessarily wise to take all matters into your own hands? Take home buying and selling, for instance. Why should buying or selling a home be any different than buying shoes, furniture or cars? It is a transaction, an exchange of a good for money between two parties. “The difference is that there is a lot more riding on this transaction, compared to others,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “Buying a home is the biggest investment most people will make in their lifetime. Selling a home on the other hand, involves much more than setting a price and securing a buyer. It involves large sums of money, stringent legal requirements and the potential for costly mistakes.” If you’ve ever thought about flying solo through this time consuming and financially perilous process, there are a few things you should consider. Look beyond the listings – a realtor’s role is not just about finding or posting listings. A realtor is there to present your offer to the seller’s realtor in a way that will help get it accepted. A realtor provides many services including identifying your needs and wants, helping to set a listing price within current market guidelines, developing a marketing plan, offering tips and advice to make your home more attractive and “saleable,” and acting on your behalf during negotiations to ensure your interests are protected. Time is money – Selling a home is a full time job, and you may already have one. Will you be able to take

Federal government helps lower the cost of housing Business – Recently Candice Bergen, Minister of State for Social Development announced changes that will help support a number of existing social housing projects when their operating agreements mature. “The Harper Government is focused on helping vulnerable Canadians lift themselves out of poverty and lead successful lives,” said Minister Bergen. “Since 2006, in working with our partners, we’ve provided support to over 880,000 individuals and families with access to affordable housing. Today’s announcement represents a common sense approach that will give

some social housing projects greater flexibility when their CMHC operating agreements reach their maturation.” Effective immediately, social housing providers whose operating agreements allow for the establishment of a Subsidy Surplus Fund (SSF) can now retain any money they may have in this fund to use after their operating agreements mature. These funds can be used to continue to lower the cost of housing for lowincome households living in existing social housing, including individuals, families, seniors, persons with dis-

abilities, and Aboriginal people. The SSF is a component of some operating agreements entered into between CMHC and non-profit and co-operative housing providers. The fund is established by housing providers so that they can retain unused federal funding, up to a certain limit to lower rents for low-income households. This change will apply retroactively. This means that for housing providers whose agreements have already matured and who have repaid CMHC amounts that remained in their SSF at time of maturity, CMHC will refund the

funds it collected, provided the project continues to be owned and operated by the social housing provider. “The Co-operative Housing Federation (CHF) of Canada’s 900 member housing co-ops warmly welcome the decision announced today on the eve of National Housing Day,” said CHF Canada’s executive director Nicholas Gazzard. “This additional flexibility allows co-ops to use federal funds to provide rentgeared-to-income assistance for vulnerable low-income households, even after their funding agreements have expired.”

Economic Action Plan 2013 committed $1.25 billion to renew the Investment in Affordable Housing. This is in addition to the $2 billion invested through previous Economic Action Plans to build new affordable housing and renovate existing social housing projects, including co-operatives. Through CMHC, the federal government continues to work with provinces and territories and other stakeholders to ensure that Canadians have access to a range of affordable housing options, including non-profit and co-operative housing.

STEO prepared for inclement weather forecasting services in the country. The same system is used by road crews from the Ontario Ministry of Transportation. STEO staff members do not rely solely on forecasts, however, when deciding whether or not to cancel bus service. Consultation takes place with a team of contractors whose staff members check area roads at 4:30 a.m. if bad weather is expected. The region is separated into 18 zones with a contractor as a captain in each zone. The captain reports weather and road conditions to Cotnam directly, confirming the amount of snow and ice accumulation on roads, if snow or freezing rain is continuing, and providing details on accumulation and intensity. STEO, and the contractors, also consult with municipal road crews, police, and other school boards throughout the region, before making the call. With such a large area, it’s not unusual for weather to be bad in

some parts of the jurisdiction, and not others. In those situations the board only cancels busing in problem areas, or areas where weather is expected to pose difficulty for bus drivers by the time they pick up students for the return trip home. This means buses can be cancelled in all 18 zones, or cancelled in as few as one, when conditions warrant such an order. Parents may get frustrated if roads in their area look fine, but while one street may look clear, travel elsewhere in the immediate region may be dangerous. The final decision on bus cancellations is made by the Director of Education from each board, or his designate, based on Cotnam’s recommendations. The decision to cancel must be made by 5:45 a.m., as buses begin as early as 6 a.m. Once the decision is made to run, STEO cannot reverse it, even if weather takes an unexpected turn for the worse. Parents rely on that decision when they leave for work.

website means parents don’t have to wait for the next newscast to get details. They can log on at www.steo. ca to access information. “The decision to cancel busing is not taken lightly,” explained Cotnam. “It’s based on careful analysis of several factors, from up-to-date weather forecasts, to information from bus drivers who check roads on mornings when problem weather is expected.” STEO staff review forecasts each day before 2 p.m. to check for weather alerts that may affect busing. If there are problems on the horizon, bus contractors are notified. Forecasts are reviewed again at 9:30 p.m. On the mornings that snow storms, freezing rain, or other weather problems are expected, the forecasting service, Pelmorex/ The Weather Network, is contacted at 4:30 a.m. to check on weather conditions.

News –With winter near, and the impending onset of inclement weather, Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) has improved the way it manages bus cancellations for the upcoming winter season. “STEO has worked vigorously to improve communication with parents and students about decisions to cancel busing if snowy conditions or icy roads make it unsafe to run buses,” said Ron Cotnam, STEO’s general manager and Chief Administrative Officer. Letters have been sent to all parents of students in both the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario and the Upper Canada District School Board, explaining the process for issuing bus cancellation orders. STEO’s website offers easy access to transportation updates during inclement weather season. While STEO still works with area radio and TV stations to issue details about cancellations, the

Chamber honours business leaders who make a difference in our community By DOREEN BARNES

Business – From the moment people stepped onto the red carpet leading into the Brockville Memorial Civic Centre, a richness and grandeur of the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce 2013 Awards of Excellence Gala evening was evident. About 260 individuals attended the awards on Thursday, Nov. 14. The 2013 finalists and guests were truly honoured with an inviting atmosphere, delicious dinner provided by the Brockberry Café and entertainment by the Thousand Islands Jazz Trio of Alan Ogborne, Doug Dillon and Roger Woller. As it came time to present the awards, each winner graciously accepted their honour with joyous and meaningful remarks. “We start with an award that has only been given out once before,” said master of ceremonies Greg Hinton, “and that is because it’s only given when there’s an extraordinary local event or extraordinary people doing extraordinary things, Photo by DOREEN BARNES which also happens to benefit the community in unique and meaningful ways Canarm Ltd. owner and mentor David Beatty had the privilege of presenting the Citizen of the Year Award to Jim Cooper at the Chamber of – the President’s Award.” Four years ago this award was given Commerce 2013 Awards of Excellence Gala held on Thursday, Nov. 4.

out to Project Encore for the renovations of the Brockville Arts Centre. Brian Burns, on behalf of the members of the Tall Ships Festival organizing committee, accepted the President’s Award paying credit to Dave Paul (who arrived later in the evening). As Greg Raison and Mike Hitchcock of Brockville’s Rona accepted the Green Business of the Year Award, Raison thanked the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce for recognizing this category in its Awards of Excellence ceremony. Who other than an actor, a singer or a Shakespeare admirer would use a quote when accepting an award? As the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival was announced winner of the Tourism Award, chair Jo-Anne Beckstead and artistic director Ian Farthing made their way to the stage to accept. How fitting it was for Farthing to say, “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players. In terms of players it’s not just the actors who appear on the stage that makes a festival successful, it’s such a collaborative effort. It involves volunteers who sell tickets, the volunteers who work in the

front of the house or sew costumes and the audiences who buy tickets. We could not do it without a team effort.” Following the Tourism Award was the Business of the Year Award which went to Home Hardware Building Supplies with Stefanie Chauvin-Huntley and Paul Blakney accepting. Blakney said his speech would be short. He said, “A big thank you to everyone and congratulations to all the other nominees in this category and every other one. I’m really happy to be here tonight and really happy to be part of Brockville and to have you as customers.” Next the Small Business of the Year nominees were announced with the criteria being, a company, privately owned with less than 10 employees, which had demonstrated growth and development in the past year, exhibited good business and community sense along with innovation. “I’m actually speechless and I’m glad I cannot see anyone out there because I’m nervous as heck,” said Andy Wheeler of snapd 1000 Islands as he accepted this award. “I honestly didn’t think I was going to win.” See AWARDS page 32 R0012424124_1121

Wheeler recognized the other two nominees in this category, The Butcher Shop and Maplehurst Manor, and continued to give his heartfelt thanks to many individuals including Denise for home cooked meals. Regarding food, the Brockville and Area Food Bank (Operation Harvest Share) co-chair Rev. Myra Gavin spoke on behalf of co-chair JoAnne Sytsma, capital campaign chair Catherine Deplaedt, as she thanked the community for being recognized with the Community Excellence Award. “This (award) is ours, it belongs to the whole community,” remarked Gavin. “While I heard many businesses say tonight that they want to be here for the next 12 or 25 years, we do not want to be here anymore, we really don’t. We are hoping to do ourselves out of a job, but the reality is that it is not going to happen.” To add to the award given to the Brockville and Area Food Bank, Enbridge Pipelines Inc’s Eric

Pru’Homme announced a $1,500 contribution which sparked thunderous applause. The Young Professional of the Year Award went to Francine Levere, a chartered accountant with Kenneth J. Durand Professional Corporation. “I’d like to say a few quick thank-yous, to the Brockville Chamber for putting on this wonderful event,” she said, adding thanks to the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, of which she is treasurer, her parents for instilling their values in her and also her employer, Ken Durand. Business Person As for the Business Person of the Year, this award which had been announced earlier (October timeframe) went to Jagmohan (Jag) Singh Chawla of Apex Logistics Inc., who felt that his family is the reason for his success. “My sincere thanks to the citizens of Brockville, the business community and the Chamber for this recognition,” said Chawla. “I’m honoured and humbled by this recognition.” For the most emotional award presentation of the evening, Citizen of the Year went to, Canarm

president Jim Cooper. As Brockville and Area CEO Sueling Ching (through a taped interview) indicated, “Jim, with you receiving this award is really a life achievement award. You started out as a “Y” kid, then worked as a volunteer within the YMCA. To see what you have become is an inspiration for what a person with your pride, determination, intelligence and energy can really accomplish. We are really proud of you. You have been as sweet as a little boy and you are as strong as a hero and always steadfast in your own values, so accepting and open hearted. There couldn’t be a greater person to receive this award.” Before Canarm Ltd. owner David Beatty presented Cooper with the award, he spoke of the early days at Canarm and how Cooper had invested in himself. “He thrives because of three things,” said Beatty. “He’s a keen observer, quick study and incredible adapter. Those things convinced me that Jim was the man to start our supply chain system in China. I handed over the responsibility and today, what he has built, with a team of 50 to 100 people in the Far East is a real competitive advantage for Canarm.” When Cooper approached Beatty at work about producing lights along with ceiling fans, Cooper indicated that the fans were only a seasonal business. “This was the clincher (during the discussion),” said Beatty. “He says, you know I cannot guarantee that it is going to be hot tomorrow, but I can guarantee that it is going to be dark tonight. How do you fight that kind of logic?” As the laughter from all the stories shared qui-

eted down, Beatty became serious saying, “Jim has never forgotten his humble roots and those who helped him along the way. He was as we heard a subsidized child at the “Y” and the second match in Cornwall’s Big Brothers Association. Jim now gives back significantly to help those who gave him a hand up. It’s inspiring to know that hard work and inspiration can still be recognized today. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome a deserving winner of the 2013 Citizen of the Year, my friend, Jim Cooper.” To a standing ovation and continuous applause, Cooper made his way to the stage. “Thank you,” said Cooper. “Wow, David said it is about giving back and it really is.” Cooper stated that many people helped him along his path. “Forty some years ago, my mom was a single parent with three young boys and one had a little bit too much energy,” remarked Cooper. “She had the foresight to see that I needed a little bit of help. The YMCA came into play, Big Brothers, just to keep me in the right direction. Years later my mom ran a foster home for 25 years and she was also a Big Sister for two different ladies.” He spoke about working for Canarm and the tremendous learning experience that Beatty has provided. “We continue to invest in machinery and in February we have $1.6 million of new machinery coming into the building,” he said. “David’s guidance has influenced me beyond belief and he is a shining example of what community is all about. To everyone, remember to find your passion and give back.”

Local playwrights feature new works during Playreading Week Dec. 3 to 7 Arts – In January 2013, the Thousand Islands Playhouse launched a new initiative- a Playwrights’ Unit. After a rigorous selection process reviewing applications from across the province, five outstanding local playwrights were invited to participate in a year-long residency program designed to foster the talent of both emerging and established artists. Over the last year, they have met monthly to challenge and expand their individual projects, growing each into fully developed plays with artistic support from Thousand Islands Playhouse artistic director Ashlie Corcoran and associate artistic director Charlotte Gowdy. The Thousand Islands Playhouse is proud to announce the first ever PlayReading Week from Dec. 3 – 7. Audiences are invited to attend the first public readings of these plays, led by professional directors and performed by professional actors- some whom may be recognized from past seasons on the Thousand Islands Playhouse stage. Each event begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Firehall Theatre (185 South St., Gananoque) and is followed by a Q&A session with the artists. Admission is free. PlayReading schedule: - Stranger on the Shore by Douglas Bowie, Dec. 3 - A middle-aged woman turns up in a small town, far off the beaten track. There’s a hint of mystery, and sadness about her. She’s changed her name and appearance; she’s a woman with dark secrets trying to escape her past. But the past isn’t so easily shed. And what if, one day, it comes calling. Director: Ashlie Corcoran. Ginger: Diane Stapely. Marian: Charlotte Gowdy. - The Impossible History of Adelyn Ashworth by Jessica Anderson, Dec. 4. Adelyn Ashworth is a normal teenager until rumours begin to surface about her private life. Caught up in a vicious cycle of bullying and ostracized by her friends, Adelyn draws upon controversial women of the past to guide her through this trying time (and high school.) Director: Ashlie Corcoran. Adelyn: Lauren Albin. Dianne,

and all historical figures: Charlotte Gowdy. Mr. Bell/ Jeff: Brett Christopher. Danny/Kurt: Alex Oliver. Zoe: Sarah Chiodo. - Jew from Three Rivers by Lawrence Aronovitch, Dec. 5. In 1807, Trois-Rivières was the first community in Lower Canada – and the British Empire – to choose someone professing the Jewish faith as their political representative. But Ezekiel Hart was never allowed to take his seat in the House of Assembly. The Jew from Three Rivers tells his story, which resonates in our own day as governments grapple with how to accommodate religious and cultural differences in society. Director: Ashlie Corcoran. Moses: Craig Walker. Frances: Charlotte Gowdy. Ezekiel: Ian Farthing. Bedard: Brett Christopher. Sir James: Ian Clark. Needless Matters by Craig Walker, Dec. 6. In the spring of 1892, the great English actor-manager Henry Irving and his business partner Bram Stoker are paid a visit by the American showman “Buffalo” Bill Cody. As the whiskey flows discretion is cast aside and the conversation moves through an ever more dangerous gauntlet of topics. What begins as a genial chat slowly gives way to forced confessions and ugly recriminations. Director: Charlotte Gowdy. Irving: Ian D. Clark. Stoker: Brett Christopher. Cody: Mo Bock. - The First Go by Sarah Dennison, Dec. 7. In a little factory town in Northern Ontario, Raquel, Mump and Kate are just trying to get by. One snowy night at the local coffee shop, after a big change in their small town, they find themselves in the middle of a morally questionable business deal with an eccentric truck driver from Saskatoon. Director: Charlotte Gowdy. Mump: Sara Chiodo. Raquel: Shannon Taylor. Signal Fire: Carolyn Hetherington. Kate: Kate Maguire.

MP calls public meeting on vision for Rideau Canal News - Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville has announced the date of his public meeting on the Rideau Canal. “There has been a lot of work taking place this fall by our member partners in the Living and Visiting the Rideau project and I am pleased at the progress that has been made and excited to see the final report,” explains Brown. “I will be holding a public meeting on at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5 at the Lombardy Agricultural Hall to add to this process,” he adds. Since the beginning of October, the Rideau Roundtable has held a series of meetings and brought together a number of interested stakeholders to come up with an effective strategy to create a collective re-visioning of the canal to ensure that it would live up to its potential as a UNESCO World Heritage Site now, and into the future. With the support of Brown, the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville, Parks Canada, Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation (with Frontenac and 1000 Islands CDFC), the Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association, Lanark County, the Town of Smiths Falls, and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture for the Province of Ontario, this project evolved into the Rideau Canal Visitor Experience Opportunities Concept or “VEOC” for short. The VEOC encourages stakeholders to take an active, coordinated and collaborative role in the visioning of programs, services, and activities that will facilitate meaningful experiences and opportunities for guests to the region to connect with the essence of the region’s natural and cultural character, and the heritage of its people. This approach builds upon experience gained in similar successful VEOCs conducted for the His-

toric Fortifications of Quebec City, Grosse Ile National Historic Site, Gros Morne National Park and the Terra Novas, in Newfoundland and the Four Windows on the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick. In Fundy, this stakeholder engagement process received a tourism award. The Rideau Canal VEOC process occurred during October and November with a series of six, two-day, facilitated discussions with small stakeholders groups, made of people from and wide array of interests and backgrounds from specific geographical regions of the Rideau Corridor. These groups were tasked with brainstorming new experience concepts that would create a base for collaboration and action aimed at enhancing the financial sustainability of the canal and adjacent communities, and ensuring the canal meets its potential as a world class site, vibrant and animated. Throughout the VEOC sessions, a number of inter-linked challenges were addressed, such as: 1) responding to the values and interests of guests and residents with relevant and responsive programs and services; 2) strategically expanding the Rideau Canal’s world heritage site image and profile, through opportunities to connect with the heritage of the Rideau Canal, its related communities and landscapes, and to enhance the reputation of it as sustainable heritage corridor; 3) increasing and diversifying the number of visitors who can benefit from the experience opportunities offered throughout the corridor; 4) identifying opportunities for collaborative and strategic investment in the growth and evolution of the Rideau Canal as a world heritage destination, thereby benefitting the economic, social and environmental well-being of Rideau Corridor

communities; and 5) achieving the above in accordance with Canada’s Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Sustainable Tourism. There were a range of ideas and initiatives generated. With some actions “doable” immediately; some actionable in the next few years, and some, when opportunity permits. The process, though future oriented, has proven to be immediately relevant, and has already served to bring different groups together to move ideas forward in collaboration for the betterment of their businesses, their communities and ultimately for Rideau Corridor. “I am extremely pleased at how well these sessions have been working and the ideas that are coming forward,” says Brown. “I am also encouraging people to take part in

an on-line survey,” he explains. “The information gathered in this survey will stand with final VEOC report for consideration.” The survey can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RideauExperiences “The public meeting I am holding will also be used to generate ideas and comments to add to this process,” he notes. At the meeting he will accept written comments and ideas and, time-permitting, allow individuals to briefly explain their submissions. “The submissions will be used in the final report,” he says. In January 2014, a final report on what has been learned in the VEOC sessions will be released to the public for review. The next steps will be for all interested parties to evaluate these ideas, identify some items for commitment and to start making things happen.

The May Court Club of Brockville recently made a significant donation to Family & Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds & Grenville, in the amount of $2,175. The money was raised at May Court’s annual Lunch Card Party and Auction. The money will be managed by the Foster Family Association for the Suitcase Initiative. This program provides children from infancy to 16 years of age with a suitcase or backpack containing personal items such as PJ’s, toiletries, blanket, book, pencils/crayons and perhaps a small snuggly toy. Often when children have to be removed from their homes in a crisis, they come away with nothing or insufficient clothing. Pictured from left to right are Debbie Jonkman, manager of resources for Family & Children’s Services of LL&G, Shirley Vickery of May Court, Jillian Symonds who chaired the fundraising event, and Allison Asselstine, president of the Foster Family Association.

BGH says thanks to Rick Mercer

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brockville General Hospital (BGH) is saying a big â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you!â&#x20AC;? to Canadian entertainer Rick Mercer for allowing use of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Flu Shotâ&#x20AC;? from the Rick Mercer Report television show as part of the BGH 2013 Flu Vaccination Campaign. First broadcast last year, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flu Rantâ&#x20AC;? has been viewed on You Tube by over 180,000 viewers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great piece on the importance of getting the flu vaccine,â&#x20AC;? says Patricia Hoy-Berrea, BGH manager of Occupational Health and Safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rick Mercer, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humorous while making an important point.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought what a great tool it would be in our 2013 Flu Campaign with our staff,â&#x20AC;? she continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so we asked the Rick Mercer Report if we could post it internally with our staff and tie a link on our external web site for the public, as well. They immediately said yes.â&#x20AC;? The BGH 2013 Flu Vaccination Campaign kicked off Nov. 5 with an aggressive goal of 70 per cent compliance. After just over two weeks, the rate of uptake for full-time and parttime BGH employees is over 60 per cent. Hoy-Berrea confirms thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very optimistic that we will reach our goal,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a clear reminder of vaccination importance from a well-loved comedian like Rick Mercer,â&#x20AC;? she adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;our compliance rate can only continue to climb for the campaign.â&#x20AC;? The BGH Flu Campaign runs until Nov. 29. The public can link to Rickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rant via the BGH web site at www.bghon.ca. November is BGH Patient Safety Month. Submitted by the Brockville General Hospital.

Straight talk at End of Life information symposium ogy he used. “Assisted suicide is an act of intention of killing of one’s self with the help of another,” said Schuklenk. “So is it an act of suicide? On the other hand, euthanasia is an act that is undertaken by one person to kill another person, so you don’t do it yourself, somebody does something to you that leads to your death. Importantly, this only happens under circumstances when this person does not think their life is worth living. The act of killing is in accordance with the wishes of the person that is going to get killed.”

By DOREEN BARNES

News – As Brockville mayor David Henderson indicated in his opening remarks, to have a discussion on end of life is a challenge, but it is needed. It is essential for the families and their loved one to know what the wishes are before people come to the end of their life on earth. This symposium was for information only with questions and answers at the end of each speaker’s talk. The keynote speaker of the event from Queen’s University was Dr. Udo Schuklenk, chair of the Royal Canadian Society’s Expert Panel on End-ofLife Decision Making and the Ontario Research chair in Bioethics. The End of Life Symposium was held Nov. 9 at the Brockville Arts Centre. Schuklenk spoke to the theme of ‘Why Canada Should Decriminalize Assisted Dying’. “In 2008-2009, I had arrived two years prior to Canada from Scotland and was asked if I would be interested in sharing some panel on end of life decision making in Canada,” said Schuklenk. “It was not my expertise. I had not been a companion at the endof-life issues, on either side of the fence.” Schuklenk indicated that there were six people on this international panel who, after two years of intensive work, produced a document. “We recommended that Canada should consider legalizing assisted dying in some form or shape to competent people only,” stated Schuklenk. “Competent people, meaning people who are functionally aware who can express their wishes at some point and time. Our report made an impact. So I ended up over the last three or four years doing nothing but this (end-of-life issues) and that’s how it came about.” While speaking Schuklenk described what he meant by the terminol-

The End of Life Information Symposium on Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Brockville Arts Centre was very well attended with Dr. Udo Schuklenk, chair of the Royal Canadian Society’s Expert Panel on End-of-Life Decision Making and Ontario Research Chair in Bioethics. He spoke on why Canada should decriminalize assisted dying. He was one of four individuals to talk on End-of-Life.

Advance directive He also felt that an advance directive is essential to convey what the person’s wishes are, written by a competent individual concerning what, when or how and by whom the decision should be made in the event, sometime in the future, that individual becomes incompetent to make his/her decisions. Terminal sedation is another term that Schuklenk touched on which is life on sedation with no food or water leading to eventual death. This is based on the advance directive which the person had completed, when competent. “Most of us would like to die at home, but as it turns out most of us do not die at home,” said Schuklenk. “Ninety five per cent of people dying in this country would benefit from palliative care, yet 70 per cent of us do not have reliable access. When you talk about pediatric palliative care, that figure is even higher.” He feels that one of the reasons for asking for assistance in dying is because it is a desire to control the circumstances of our own death. “It is a fear of loss and independence to care for us, fear of impairment, worried about future pain and poor quality of life,” stated Schuklenk. “Now when you look at these motives, you can see

it is a complex combination of physical psycho-social extension of suffering. It matters because the people who are opposed to the legalization of assisted dying have always been going on about the good palliative (care), once we have this, we can resolve the suffering related issues.” The problem is that while palliative care arguably will reduce the number of requests for assisted dying, it is also true for a significant number of patients that this solution would still make their lives worth living, to them. He mentioned that it is not all about pain. Schuklenk continued to talk about the support of legalizing end-of-life, especially in Quebec with Bill 52 which has been tabled in the National Assembly. According to statistics 86 per cent of the Quebec population support assisted end-of-life and one in four doctors would assist. Human dignity “Some would argue that suicide is an offense against human dignity,” said Schuklenk. “Human dignity actually has no meaning. It is completely a vacuous term that people use to hide other ideological convictions. We (panel) feel that people should step away from the human dignity and say what people really mean. Explain your case.” According to the panel’s findings, the majority of patients who pursue assisted suicide are those around 85 years old with 80 per cent being cancer patients, above average education and income; they are well off people who have had enough of life. “You will see a lot of manufactured evidence and I strongly encourage you that your take on assisted dying depends on particular facts, do not trust me or do not trust the next speaker, do you homework,” said Schuklenk.

Brockville gallery welcomes special guest Arts - On Wednesday, Nov. 20 the Infinity Gallery on King Street Brockville welcomed Pier Giorgio Di Cicco to their monthly ‘In to Texts: Poetry and Prose in All Media’ meeting. Di Cicco is known for his contribution to Canadian Literature through his poetry which centres on his experiences as an Italian immigrant. He came to Canada with his family when he was just three years of age and over the years has lived in a variety of places including both Montreal and Toronto. In the early 1970s he worked parttime as a bartender while attending the

University of Toronto. It was at that time that he began to publish his poems. His poems often refer to his own life and family experiences. Shortly thereafter Di Cicco felt the call to a Catholic religious life. He spent some time in an Augustinian monastery in the Toronto area and then became a friar with a parish in Brampton. During this period he did not write much poetry, but resumed his writing in the ’90s and in 2005 was chosen Poet Laureate of Toronto. By his own admission, he doesn’t write much anymore, explaining “I find it too emotional.” He continued, “It’s al-

most a physical experience for me. That makes it more difficult for me to write.” He read from his book ‘Honeymoon Wilderness’, and also one he wrote about his father who passed away many years ago. In addition he read from his book, ‘Dead Men of the 50’s‘. He joked when he first stood behind the podium, “I haven’t done a poetry reading in two years. I’m kind of nervous!” Yet once he began to read, the soothing tone of his voice captivated his audience, seemingly hanging on each word as he read. Ecstatic to have him here in Brockville, Nel Coloma-Moya remarked,

“This is a wonderful guy! I’m so happy he came here.” Taking the mic before Di Cicco were five very talented artists who chose to share with those in attendance not only their poetry and prose but some also shared their musical prowess and encompassing love of the art. First up was Urban Planner and musician Sandy Hay who shared his musical talents, followed by Dawn Pike who read three poems written by Robert Service. City councillor Leigh Bursey took to the podium next where he began by reading ‘Rise of the tide’ and then merged into ‘Darkest before the Dawn’

on his guitar. Up next was Debra Washington of Kingston. Having recently visited Iceland she very vividly shared her work stemming from her experiences there. The host of the evening, ColomaMoya was the last to take to the podium before intermission, sharing a heartfelt poem that she had written about her own father’s passing, followed by John Mayer’s ‘Daughters’ on disc. The Infinity Gallery has held the ‘Into Texts: Poetry and Prose in All Media” on a regular monthly basis since August of 2013, but will be taking a two month break over Christmas returning to a regular schedule in February. Very excited about plans for the upcoming year, Coloma-Moya explains, “Awareness of the natural beauty of the 1000 Islands as a future destination for artists is evident in the arrival of Pier Giorgio Di Cicco, 2nd poet laureate of Toronto whose interest in discovering a hidden gem like Brockville to promote the literary arts lays claim to a bright future in keeping with the vision of a Summer Institute for the Arts and Culture.”

Dawn Pike reads three poems written by Robert Service during the Into Texts: Poetry and Prose in All Media’, Nov. 20 at the Infinity Gallery. Special guest for the evening was Pier Giorgio Di Cicco. Photo by JAN MURRAY

A community partners’ volunteer youth fair took place at South Grenville District High School, Nov. 20, featuring more than half a dozen booths from various agencies and organizations in the area. Here Ailene Abcede, program assistant and Hanna Kitchingman, youth and administrative coordinator with the Epilepsy and Seizure Disorder Resource Centre of South Eastern Ontario were in attendance. While they are always looking for volunteers their focus was on recruiting students to aid with the annual March 26 International Day of Epilepsy, Purple Day, to raise awareness within schools.

Burchell was most involved with the Friends of the Library group which she founded in 2000 and with the mill where she served as chair and board member for many years. Generous donations flowed to the library following Burchellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memorial service last year, the funds were used for the bench.

Blackhawks frustrated after their 4-4 tie with Cardinal Old Timers

Sports - The Island City Blackhawks left Cardinal last Saturday afternoon feeling like they got shafted in their 4-4 tie with the Cardinal Old Timers. And rightly so. Not only did they receive the majority of the penalties called, they also had a goal disallowed and watched helplessly as Cardinal scored a wraparound goal with the net off its moorings. They were also awarded a penalty shot on a similar play where the Hawks never even got a power play minutes earlier. “We have two really good hockey teams here doing battle and all we are talking about is the officiating. We’ve lost once and they have lost only twice, so this was set up to be a great game,” Blackhawks management barked out in frustration after the game. Unfortunately for the Blackhawks the marginal officiating got to them and therefore took them away from their task at hand. “Hey it is what it is. It’s too bad the focal point of the game in this room was more about the officiating than the great

game that was played. There’s no doubt that certainly got into our guys’ heads for sure, we need to learn from this and worry more about the game.,” explained Hawks’ captain J R ‘Buckleys’ Ryan. Even veteran and the ‘Ageless Wonder’ Peter Culp had his take on things. “We played a great game here today; we just let the ref get into their heads. We have to play our game and the results will take care of it.” Territorially the Blackhawks dominated this game, unfortunately the penalty situation led to numerous momentum swings and it caught up with them especially in the third period. The Cardinal young lads scored three third period goals including a powerplay marker, a wraparound goal with the net dislodged and the game tied with 1:32 left in the game. The Island City crew took their slim 2-1 first period lead into the third. Early in the third the Hawks went up 3-1. Cardinal replied with a powerplay goal minutes later. Once again the Blackhawks re-

gained their two-goal lead and seemed to be on their way to securing the win. The Old Timers from Cardinal pulled to within one on a wraparound goal with the far side of the net off its peg. Should have been waved off right? Not in this game. Cardinal tied the game with 1:32 left on the clock to salvage the tie. ‘The Scorpio Line’ remains hot as ‘The Velvet Fog’ Rob Carter lit the lamp twice while line mate ‘The Champ’ Wayne Morrow had one of his own. The Blackhawks recently inked ‘The Hammer’ Joel Blancher to an entry level contract and he rewarded the team with a goal. Blackhawks 10 Classics 4 The Blackhawks rolled into Kemptville with pretty much their full squad including their ‘lord of the laced lounge’, Spencer Utman and left town with a convincing 10-4 win. It wasn’t a classic by any means by the Brock Vegas lads but in the end it was enough to get the job done. “These games are tough to play in for

our group here. This was Spence’s first game against these guys and he certainly looked bored for the most part. It was tough for him to maintain his concentration especially when he wasn’t getting a lot of work,” management said. The Blackhawks led 3-2 after one and were up 6-2 at one point in the second before the Classics threw a scare into them. The hometown Classics scored two goals in less than two minutes to pull within a pair of the high-flying Hawks. Thankfully the Blackhawks managed to tickle the twine two more times to hold an insurmountable 8-4 lead going into the third. The Blackhawks scored the only two goals of the third to close out this deal. ‘The Scorpio Line’ led the attack scoring five times. ‘The Champ’ Wayne Morrow and the Buckleys addicted one J R Ryan each rippled the braided bullhouses twice each. ‘The Velvet Fog’ Rob Carter also scored and was very instrumental in the line’s other goals as well.

Josh Brayton done for the year The Blackhawks regretfully want to announce to their fans that their stalwart winger Josh Brayton is done for the season due to an unfortunate accident in his home. Brayton received second and third degree burns to both his hands and feet and the team doctors confirmed he is done for the season. The team wants to raise money for Josh to help him and his family get through the holiday season. “We all want to wish Josh a speedy recovery. He is a special kid and he is loved here by all his teammates. He will be sorely missed both on and off the ice,” management said with a twinkle in his eye. This Saturday night the Blackhawks, with their impressive 8-1-2 record, will host for the first time ever the Winchester Hawks at the Youth Arena for a 9 p.m. puck drop.

November is Lung Cancer Awareness month By MAUREEN TOURANGEAU

News - With a low survival rate of only 17 per cent, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women in Canada, taking the lives of more Canadians than breast, prostate and colorectal cancers combined. In 2013, it is estimated that 27 per cent of cancer deaths or 20,200 people will die from lung cancer in Canada. The fiveyear relative survival rate is estimated at 14 per cent for men and 20 per cent for women. Many people tend to think that lung cancer is restricted to smokers or exposure to second-hand smoke. However, few know that exposure to high concentrations of radon gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. What is radon? Radon is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas that is naturally occurring in the environment. It can be found in almost all indoor air including homes, offices, schools and any other indoor environment. Low concentrations of radon are safe. However, high concentrations of radon cause cancer. Health Canada estimates that 16 per cent of lung cancer deaths in Canada are caused by radon and that an estimated 500,000 Canadians are living in homes that exceed federal guidelines for radon gas exposure.

Children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of radon exposure. If a child lives in a home with a very high radon concentration for only a few years, the risk of developing lung cancer later in life could be the equivalent to a lifetime exposure to moderate radon concentration. The risk for lung cancer for smokers who are also exposed to high concentrations of radon is also significantly increased. Radon is released into the air as soil and rocks containing uranium naturally breakdown. Outdoors, the released radon is quickly dispersed and levels remain very low. However, when radon enters buildings through foundations, cracks, holes, pipes and other openings in walls and floors it may build up in concentration. This is particularly true in basements which are often poorly ventilated. Radon levels in homes should meet Health Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidelines of 200 Bg/ m3 or less. If levels are higher than those guidelines, immediate action with a certified radon mitigation contractor should be taken to reduce exposure. Why should Ontarians care? A 2011 study conducted by Health Canada of more than 14,000 buildings across Canada found that approximately five per cent of homes in Canada tested

positive for more than four times the safe concentrations of radon. Consider this. The National Building Code contains radon mitigation measures such as increased ventilation that would, if used, reduce concentration of radon in new buildings. But the code is voluntary. On the other hand, the Ontario Building Code is mandatory, but the province has not yet adopted the National Building Code standards on radon mitigation. If Ontario adopted the national building code standards these measures would become mandatory for all new buildings and further protect the community from radon exposure at work and in schools. In an effort to minimize radon exposure in Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s communities, Dr. Shariq Qaadri, MPP for Etobicoke North, has introduced Bill 96 - the Radon Awareness and Prevention Act. The bill is supported by the Canadian Cancer Society, the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada (RSCI) and the Ontario Lung Association. The bill is intended to protect Ontarianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health through harmonization of the building codes, a public registry and a public education campaign to raise awareness on the easy measures people can take to safeguard their homes. What can you do to protect yourself?

Innovative student designers sought to create Trustee Innovation Award News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is looking for innovative student designers to create an award to recognize innovation within the board. The board is hosting its second annual Trustee Innovation Award design contest, encouraging artistic students to come up with an eye-catching design for the 2014 Trustee Innovation Award. The winning design will be used to create the award that will be presented to the recipients at next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ceremony. The successful designer will receive a prize of a $100 VISA gift card. The award was initiated by trustees in the spring of 2013 to recognize and share with the system, innovative teaching and work practices. Trustee Caroll Carkner said the board is seeking a student design because she has seen the high quality of artwork pro-

duced by UCDSB students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It also makes them a part of the process,â&#x20AC;? said Carkner of the decision to seek a student design. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that there are innovative, artistic students out there in our system, and we want to give them an opportunity where they can see their artistic ideas having a real impact by acknowledging the work of our innovative employees.â&#x20AC;? Designs must meet the following guidelines: - The contest is open solely to students within the Upper Canada District School Board and the T.R. Leger School of Adult, Alternative and Continuing Education. - Designs must be no more than 21 centimetres tall and 12 centimetres wide. - The winning design must bear the UCDSB logo, the title â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trustee Innova-

tion Awardâ&#x20AC;? and have space allocated on which to display the winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, workplace, and year. - While artists are able to use any media, entrants must include with their entry a list of materials required to create the award. The overall cost of producing each award must be no more than $50 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taxes included. - Students can work alone or as a team. - Designs must be submitted to Trustee Liaison Officer Lisa Raymond in electronic format by no later than May 31, 2014. Entries can be emailed to: lisa.raymond@ucdsb.on.ca. The awards will be presented to winners during a Board of Trustees meeting in the fall of 2014. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

Test your home for radon. A simple, low-cost kit should be placed in the home for three to six months during the time that most windows and doors are closed (fall/winter) and when radon accumulation is more likely to be detected. You can purchase a radon testing kit ranging from $20 - $50 from your local hardware store. The kit will then need to be sent to a lab to receive the test results. The lab submission is included in most kits. If lab results come back with a high radon level, you should contact a certified radon mitigation contractor to take steps to improve ventilation in your home and minimize your exposure. Improvements can generally be rectified for a relatively low cost to the homeowner.

As Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most trusted contractor and beloved host on HGTV, so eloquently put it in his May 2012 National Post column: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is radon something we should think about? Yes. Should we panic? No. Bottom line: Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mold, asbestos or radon, any time our health or our familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health is compromised we need to be concerned.â&#x20AC;? So donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just sit still. Take action. Go out and buy a kit. Test your home. Find out where your MPP stands on this important cancer-prevention policy and challenge them to support Bill 96 by visiting takeaction.cancer.ca/radon Maureen Tourangeau has volunteered with the Canadian Cancer Society for 37 years and has been involved with advocacy outreach since 2006.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The ninth annual â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Celebrating the Seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; began Nov. 23 at Lower Beverly Lake campground in Delta. The festival, sponsored by the Lower Beverly Lake Management board was started by the park board as a way they could give back to the community. This free family event is an excellent way to attract people to the area. Many will attend the dinner which is held at the United Church each Saturday night of the event, and then visit the Town Hall for hot chocolate and treats before boarding the wagon for a ride through the park to see all the lights, visit the buildings, share a campfire and of course see good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Santa and Mrs. Claus. The spirited festival runs for five consecutive Saturdays and usually attracts between 5-6,000 people who are anxious to catch a glimpse of the wonderment and beauty of this winter wonderland which is adorned with 80,000 lights. For more information about the upcoming four Saturdays, please visit their website at http://www.beverleylakepark.com/christmas-2013.pdf.

mileage pay for their trips to hospitals in Ottawa, Kingston and occasionally further afield. Last year, the transportation program filled 3,560 requests, with drivers covering 299,518 kilometres to take 339 local clients to their appointments. The program in the tri-county unit cost more than $84,200, as the average cost to take one patient to a round-trip appointment is $60 due to the distances that clients need to travel compared to those in other parts of Ontario. For that reason, the local Canadian Cancer Society has joined with others across Ontario to once again promote Wheels of Hope, a fundraising campaign to bring in money to help pay for the transportation program. If you would like to help get a local cancer patient to their cancer treatments, you can donate to the Wheels of Hope program by calling 613-267-1058 or 1-800367-2913. The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.

For the Canadian Cancer Society, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Unit Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When Kemptville resident Rebecca Dukes received a cancer diagnosis in August, she knew who to call to support her on her journey through treatment. Dukes turned to the Canadian Cancer Society and its transportation program immediately, as she made a plan with doctors for chemotherapy and radiation. The Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the organization covers the area from Gananoque to Cardinal, as well as Lanark County and everywhere in between, and Dukes already had experience with its many volunteer drivers. She was first diagnosed with cancer in 2005, and looked into the transportation program. After using the services during those treatments, she knew how it worked and how important it was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lifesavers, by golly,â&#x20AC;? she stressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Otherwise I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to make it to 95 per cent of my appointments.â&#x20AC;?
