Hope tops council wage earnings Karen Robinet QMI Agency Mayor Randy Hope was the top wage earner on Chatham-Kent council in 2010. Hope received a total of $106,058 last year, which included a $92,889 honorarium and $13,169 in expenses. Councillors who served the entire calendar received a $26,189 honorarium. They were Coun.

Former councillors, whose terms ended with last fall’s election, each received an honorarium of $23,869. They were Coun. Don Clarke, Tom McGregor, Steve Pickard, Larry Robbins and Bill Weaver. New councillors received honorariums in the amount of $2,319. They are Coun. Michael Bondy, Leon Leclair, Bob Myers, Derek Robertson and Jeff Wesley. One third of honorariums are considered to be a reimbursement of expenses. As well, each councillor was compensated a varying amount for expenses including travel and training.

Six-figure club grows QMI Agency The number of public sector employees earning more than $100,000 continues to climb locally, as well as across the province. At the four largest public sector employers in ChathamKent — the municipality, hospitals and the public and Catholic school boards — a total of 291 employees made six figures, up from 250 in 2009. Another 48 officials at 10 other Chatham-Kent organizations also made top dollar in 2010. Grand total in Chatham-Kent: 339, not including members of the Ontario Provincial Police. The annual numbers were released Thursday as required by the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act. Provincewide, 71,478 civil servants are making $100,000 a year or more, an 11-per-cent increase from last year’s list. The top earner is Tom Mitchell, president and CEO of Ontario Power Generation, with a salary of $1.325 million. Last year’s Sunshine list found 63,761 public servants in the six-figure club, up 18 per cent over the previous year and 90 per cent over three years. Gary Switzer, chief executive officer of the Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration Network, was the highest locallybased earner, at $273,000, up from $260,000 in 2009. Chatham-Kent Health Alliance pathologist Dr. Vassem Moussa was next at $232,499, followed by Catholic school board director Paul Wubben at $218,069. The $100,000 figure is salary before taxes, and does not include taxable benefits. Most recent figures from Statistics Canada show that a one-person household in Chatham-Kent had an average income of $25,125 in 2005, nearly $5,000 lower than Ontario’s average. Families with children averaged $82,395 and households with two adults but no children were substantially lower at $59,342.

Newly-constructed Fort Malden palisade upsetting neighbours Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — Upgrades at Fort Malden National Historic Site include the installation of a palisade reminiscent of what was there during the 1812 period. That palisade is drawing the ire of nearby residents who say it blocks their view of the Detroit River. Many of the residents, many of whom live on Fort Malden Drive, are speaking out and that includes writing letters and maintaining correspondence with Essex MP Jeff Watson and members of town council. The upgrades are a part of a federal grant which saw roughly $500,000 in restoring exhibits and the grounds at Fort Malden. Fort Malden Dr. resident Ruth Wilson said she and husband Jeff share “extreme disappointment� in the changes that are currently being made at Fort Malden. They call the palisade an “unnecessary structure� and state it “is a desecration to the landscape. “The unique view of the Detroit River is not only being lost to the residents of Fort Malden Dr. and Laird Ave., but also to members of the

community walking or driving down these streets, not to mention tourists, and paying patrons of Fort Malden,� Wilson stated. “Once they are within the parade grounds, perhaps viewing a musket firing demonstration or standing along the barracks, no longer will they be able to view one of the most valuable things Fort Malden has to offer - the river view. Wilson said residents of Fort Malden Dr. were invited to meet with site manager Jennifer Duquette where objections were raised and other suggestions offered. Those suggestions were “not considered by the Fort.� Now, not only is there an obstructed view of the river, but a non-authentic pressure treated wood fence is being built without any regards to the residents of Amherstburg. It simply serves no purpose, and has no historical value. The Wilsons hope Watson will take action and say it “breaks our hearts to see what is happening on such beautiful park land.� Kristy DeLuca believed council should take an active role in protecting the interests of its citizens. “I am outraged by the decision made by Fort Malden National Historic Site of Canada to opt for a ‘Fort

editorial

It’s not up to us One of the early issues coming out of this federal election campaign has been the decision to exclude Green Party leader Elizabeth May from two televised debates, to be broadcast next week. May was a participant in the last televised debate, during the 2008 campaign, but her appearance then may have been an anomaly: it was, the broadcasters say, because the House of Commons had a sitting Green Party member at the time. That’s not the case now, so May is out. And her exclusion has become a minor issue in this campaign, probably at the expense of more serious discussion. Make no mistake about it - next week’s debates are a product of television, and have nothing to do with Elections Canada or the federal government or the Conservative Party or any other political organization. In fact, it is easy for Stephen Harper, Michael Ignatieff or Jack Layton to say they have no problem with May’s participation, because it’s not up to them. It is a consortium of participating broadcasters that decides who is permitted to participate in the televised debates and who is excluded. Their bottom line is that the participating party leaders must have at least one sitting member in the House. But the rules surrounding the broadcasters’ debate reveal some interesting paradoxes about federal politics in this country. For example, while the Green Party has candidates running in almost every riding in this election, the Bloc Quebecois’ electoral exposure is limited to one province. In fact, the Bloc Quebecois is one of about 19 different parties with candidates in this election, but because the Bloc has elected members in the House, the consortium permitted leader Gilles Duceppe to participate. Debates are about ideas and about the opportunity to have those ideals openly discussed within a public forum. Because this is a federal election, it would make sense that May be allowed to participate in the televised debate, if only because her party’s commitment is national in scope. In fact, her Green Party was the only party in 2008 to actually increase its popular vote. But it’s not up to us to decide, nor is it up to the Canadian people. The broadcasters’ consortium is making that decision for us.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Catholic schools out of touch on gays Catholic schools are struggling to bridge a growing divide between popular opinion and church doctrine and the strain is showing. In an earlier letter I wrote about the Halton District Catholic School Board that had banned Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) in one of their high schools. Public outrage forced the board to lift the ban on GSAs, but still does not allow any student group with the word “gay” in its title. As recently reported in the Globe & Mail, another Catholic high school in Mississauga has been banned by its board from forming GSAs. The school has a gay and lesbian newspaper which reported that the leader of the GSA was told by the principal of the school that “there already were supports in place at the school, such as guidance counselors and that a GSA is premature for someone age 16.” He said they could meet for discussion but asked the group to work within the many structures in place to meet their needs. He said a GSA would encourage other students to identify their sexuality when they are too young. This approach brings the Catholic Church doctrine more and more in conflict with the new equity and inclusion policy of Ontario’s Ministry of Education, which says GSAs

should be allowed to form. The ministry has allowed school boards to amend the policy as they see fit, so long as alternate forms of support are offered e.g. broader groups that support student spirit. The principal offered to arrange for 30 students in the GSA to have discussions with the school chaplain and social worker and suggested they join other equity groups already in the school or refer to “Courage Toronto” an archdiocese-supported organization that supports young people with same sex orientation, but it focuses on chastity. Their real purpose is to cure the student of his or her homosexuality. The principal further said that a faithbased perspective must be part of any club or activity at a Catholic school. In defiance of the school’s decision, the leader of the GSA launched a Facebook group called “St. Joe’s Gay-Straight Alliance.” Posted on its webpage is a letter to the principal in which she writes that “groups such as hers do not in any way impose upon religious freedom or denominational rights of their Catholic school board.” CONTINUED > PAGE 8

Police chiefs discuss election issues Don Robinet QMI Agency Police chiefs from across the province discussed issues they would like politicians to keep in mind in the lead-up to the Oct. 6 provincial election. The meeting of about 15 police chiefs from around Ontario took place at the Retro Suites Hotel on March 30. Only a fraction of police services were represented, as zone chairs each represent several departments. Chief Dennis Poole of the Chatham-Kent Police Service was the host. He is also chair of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) zone representing police services in southwestern Ontario. Robert Herman is president of the OACP, as well as chief of the force in Thunder Bay. He told reporters, during a break in the meeting, “We’re looking strategies we want to put forward to the major parties during this election.” Herman said community safety was the primary focus of the meeting. He added the board meets five times per year. “We want to ensure the legislation is current and up to date,” said Herman. Pawnshop regulations provide an example of outdated legislation he thinks should be changed. Herman said the antiquated rules require the owners of pawnshops to keep paper, hand-written records for all of their transactions. Herman said that means when police are carrying out an investigation, involving a shop’s transactions, there is too much wasted time. “You’re talking about countless hours,” he said. Herman also said police chiefs are hoping for changes to the Police Services Act that would allow police officers to be suspended without pay in certain circumstances. He said that in cases of serious charges, officers continue to receive pay, sometimes for several years, until the case is resolved. Only after they have been found guilty and incarcerated do they stop receiving pay. Herman said when such cases occur,

Robert Herman, president of the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police, and chief of the Thunder Bay Police Service, speaks to reporters March 30 during a meeting of the association held in Chatham. “taxpayers are outraged.” Herman said there are also concerns about the costs of some SIU (Special Investigations Unit), a civilian agency that investigates allegations involving, death, serious injury, or allegations of sexual assault involving police officers and members of the public. Herman said the costs are borne by the communities where the investigation takes place. “A community can only pay so much. We agree oversight is essential, but there has to be limitations to how far oversight goes,” said Herman. While it is the province that oversees police forces, the OACP is also concerned about nearly 330 officers across the province whose salary is being paid by a federal grant. The program is due to end in 2013. In ChathamKent, there are two officers whose salary is covered by the grant. “Our concern is public safety, and community safety, is not a high priority for government,” said Herman.

Budget will benefit farmers: Hoy QMI Agency MPP Pat Hoy is pleased with a new risk management program unveiled in last week’s provincial budget. The program will now include cattle, hog, sheep, and veal farmers, and the edible horticulture sector, while continuing grains and oilseeds. “This budget is a good one for rural communities,� said Hoy, who is vice-chair of the government’s rural caucus. “It means our farmers can count on the McGuinty government to help in times of low commodity prices.� The establishment of a risk management program (RMP) was the single most important action the provincial government could have taken in today’s budget, say farmers representing the Ontario Agriculture Sustainability Coalition (OASC). The new program will help ensure the economic success of Ontario’s nonsupply managed commodities. “The premier, minister of agriculture, and finance minister have earned our thanks as

the establishment of RMP will be a critical tool to give our farmers the predictability, stability and bankability they need to move their businesses forward,� said Bette Jean Crews, president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture. The deficit for 2010–11 is projected to be $16.7 billion — $3 billion lower than forecast a year ago. This is largely due to the fact that program expense for 2010–11 is projected to be $2.6 billion lower than the forecast published in the 2010 budget. “Two years after the worst global recession most of us have ever known, the Ontario economy is turning the corner and jobs are coming back. A well-educated and healthy workforce strengthens Ontario’s economy and attracts investment and jobs,� said Finance Minister Dwight Duncan. “Strategic investments in education and health care lay the foundation for a future with more jobs, increased productivity and a better quality of life for all our families. We have a plan that is on track to eliminate the deficit while protecting the gains we have made in our schools and hospitals,� said Hoy.

Emily Thibert, left, and Samantha Godfrey complete their ice-cube melter during a competition organized by the local chapter of the Professional Engineers of Ontario at Lambton College Saturday March 26 in Sarnia.

Sound engineering principles were demonstrated during a Saturday student competition that ended with the crushing of miniature bridges. Elementary school students from across the region submitted bridges built from wooden sticks to testing by engineers from the Lambton chapter of the Professional Engineers of Ontario. Chapter members visited schools during September and October in preparation for the annual competition held at Lambton College. The 10-year-old event raises awareness of math, science and engineering among youngsters, said Phil Lasek, Lambton chapter president. Students tried to build a lightweight bridge that could withstand heavyweight pressure. An air compressor powered a clamp to push the bridges to their breaking point. A team of Grade 5 and 6 students from Tilbury Area elementary school produced the top bridge in the junior category. Their bridge did not break until hit with 75 pounds of pressure. “We had to push the limit on the air compressor,”said Lasek. That performance was the best among all 30 entries including the intermediate category. Sarnia’s Cathcart Boulevard school was second in the Grade 5-6 category and students from Rosedale in Sarnia were third. Among the intermediate category of Grade 7 and 8 students, the team from St. Joseph in Chatham was first followed the Monsignor Uyen team from Chatham and the A.A. Wright team from Wallaceburg. High school students faced a different challenge. Ten teams from the region where handed a bag of items including shoe boxes, tape and tubing at the beginning of the day.

Chatham-Kent Council votes against holding mortgage for Kinsmen Club

Karen Robinet QMI Agency Citing concern over setting a precedent, Chatham-Kent council has turned down a request from the Kinsmen Club of Wallaceburg (KCW) to hold a pair of 20-year mortgages amounting to $308,000 to help it consolidate existing debt and complete its Kinsmen Recreation and Community Centre. The project first came to council in the fall of 2009, at which time council provided a grant in the amount of $150,000 or one-sixth of what was anticipated to be a $900,000 project being undertaken through the federal/provincial RInC program. With the program providing two-thirds of the funding, council agreed to fund half of the local share required for the program, with the club taking on the remaining $150,000 through a loan from the Community Futures program. However, Mike Vandenberg, KCW treasurer, told council that the club had run into additional and unforeseen expenses that commercial lending institutions were not willing to loan the club money to cover. That, said Vandenberg, left the club with only two options: a loan from the municipality or a privately arranged mortgage, which would come with an interest rate of 9% or 10%. He also said that the club has applied for additional funding through RInC and the Trillium Foundation. However, council was divided on whether or not to provide the loans. Coun. Steve Pinsonneault said he was concerned about setting a precedent for the other â&#x20AC;&#x153;hundred someâ&#x20AC;? clubs in the community. And, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the municipality wants to be a bank.â&#x20AC;? Pinsonneault added that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if we start this, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting down a slippery slope.â&#x20AC;? He also noted that council had already provided a grant to the club. However, Coun. Jeff Wesley said the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community centre was a project for the entire community of Wallaceburg and that it was meeting a need that the municipality isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Don Shropshire, Chatham-Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of community development and planning services, said if Chatham-Kent were to build a gymnasium, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we would be hard-pressed to build one for less than $600,000.â&#x20AC;? He said that the club had signed an

 

agreement with the municipality to provide public access at the same rate the municipality charges for its facilities. Coun. Derek Robertson said he was reluctant to see the municipality providing funding where traditional lenders werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t willing to, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for fear of foreclosing on a community group,â&#x20AC;? adding he had the same concerns. Vandenberg told council that $160,000 of the initial project costs had been deemed ineligible for RInC funding as they were incurred before the project had been approved for funding. He also said additional costs of approximately $115,000 were incurred for items like a new hydro service, new HVAC systems, and fire suppression and alarm upgrades. Coun. Marjorie Crew said she

was also concerned about the club taking on more debt than it could handle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid for you,â&#x20AC;? she said. Vandenberg said the building has tenants, which provides ongoing revenue to the organization. However, Robertson said a loss of those tenants could also negatively impact the club and further impair its ability to repay its loans. Coun. Bob Myers said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe council should be concerned about setting a precedent and said that future requests could be dealt with on a case-bycase basis. He also said the project was a good example of the municipality working with community partners to provide facilities like the community centre. Coun. Anne Gilbert agreed and

He suggested that industries and individuals in Wallaceburg might be wiling to step up and help the club complete the project. Crew then introduced an amendment that would have seen the club receive a $100,000 grant, but it failed to garner more than two votes. When it came time to vote on the actual motion, which recommended providing the loans, 7-7 tie resulted in a failed vote.

Art Stirling said he shared the concerns about the precedent-setting nature of the request and suggested that the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own fundraising campaign â&#x20AC;&#x153;seems rather modest.â&#x20AC;?

Daudlin kicks off campaign with boost from former cabinet minister Don Robinet QMI Agency Liberal candidate Matt Daudlin opened his Chatham campaign office March 29 and brought along former Minister of Revenue John McCallum, who spoke about some of the planks in the party’s platform. The office opened the same day party leader Michael Ignatieff announced their first major promise of the election – a ‘learning passport’ that would provide $4,000 ($1,000 per year for each of four years) or up to $6,000 ($1,500 per year) for low income students to help them attend college or university.

Later in the meeting, Brown said he’s been aware of the issue for years, “but just recently I’ve seen some of the problems out in our area.” He said he’d like to see council take some sort of action on the matter and said, “we can’t just shelve this again.” Sulman agreed and put forward his motion which also requested that testing be conducted before any new energy project proceeds.

Only one warning notification will be issued per year for each property that is in violation of the act or by-law. Thereafter the process will proceed directly to cutting the parcel providing the situation warrants. GRASS & WEED HEIGHT BYLAW NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN to every person in possession of land within the Municipality of Chatham-Kent in accordance with By-law number 39-2004 every owner of lands not subject to the “Weed Control Act”, shall cut grass and weeds on such land whenever the height of such grass exceeds twenty centimetres (20 cm) or (8 inches) and shall remove cuttings from the premises.

He said he’s seen “pictures of fetuses of cattle, burnt hooves, burnt legs and animals totally destroyed as a result of this voltage going into barns and concrete stanchions in milking barns.” Sulman said that even though the issue is beyond council’s jurisdiction, “we can advocate on behalf of our constituents.” Coun. Brian King said the problem rests with the fact that, “Hydro One does whatever they want to do, when they want to do it and on their terms.” He said the problem is not with wind turbines, but the transmission grid itself and said Hydro One doesn’t know, “how many projects they have out there and what needs to be hooked up.” King said that the issue of stray voltage has been ongoing for 40 years, “because Hydro One doesn’t want to do anything about it.” NOTICE – YARD WASTE COLLECTION BY PUBLIC WORKS Please note that all leaf and yard waste, including brush, must not obstruct the municipal roadway or public sidewalk (right-of-way).

She said that several new organizational initiatives will be launched during the 2011/12 fiscal year and that 24 educational seminars are planned for the coming year compared to 14 in 2010. In response to a question from Coun. Marjorie Crew, Weiss said the province defines a small business as one with fewer than 50 employees. Crew said she believes small businesses are the future of Chatham-Kent and if were all added up, would probably be the largest employer in the municipality. Coun. Jim Brown agreed, and said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather see 100 small businesses with 10 employees start up than one with 1,000 employees who could lose their jobs with one closure. Weiss also said the former economic development advisory committee will be dissolved, to be replaced by a new small business advi-

sory committee this year. Coun. Anne Gilbert said she was glad to hear that and said that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;small business needs some kind of liaison between the municipality and the actual businesses.â&#x20AC;?

Based on the Versa platform, the Nissan NV200 will carry up to seven passengers.

‘Mini’ back in minivans For 2012, Nissan introduces the NV commercial van, meant to compete with the Mercedes Sprinters of the world — but perhaps the van worth looking at for its familial and commercial potential is the smaller NV200, built on a platform also used by the Nissan Cube, Juke, Versa and Leaf, among others around the world. Due to its high, seven passenger cabin and its wheelchair friendly design, it is one of three finalists for the new fleet of New York taxis expected to hit the streets in 2013. In fact, the NV200 Vanette is already performing taxi duties in Japan and the NV200 Vanette Taxi recently won the Universal Design Award for 2011, as bestowed upon it by a jury of designers and design experts, and the Universal Design Consumer Favourite Award for 2011, as granted by a consumer panel. The NV200 was also named International Van of the Year in 2010. Among the features that garnered the awards are generous leg, foot and head room in all three rows of seats (or two, in the case of the wheelchair-friendly vehicle), and the flat floor without any impediments to prevent passengers from freely moving about the cabin. When more space is needed for cargo, the middle row seats (split 60/40) fold and tumble forward, and the rear seats (50/50) fold up against the sides of the cabin. Wheelchair access is available through a two-tiered ramp at the rear, with a belt to prevent slipping when attempting

Quick Look to wheel up into the vehicle. A safety light alerts the general vicinity that wheelchairs are getting in or out of the vehicle. The flat, unobstructed floor makes it easy for wheelchairs to be positioned for safety and interactivity with other passengers. The high cabin also has the added benefit of providing superior visibility through the large windows all the way around the vehicle. The rear cargo door is a traditional top hinged hatchgate, though it can be substituted for side opening “French” doors. The NV200 is 4.4 metres long and 1.84 metres high, with a floor height of 520 mm (about 20 inches). To make it easier to get into the vehicle, electrically deployable slide step on the passenger side is synchronized with the opening of the large, high sliding door and it’s illuminated for night time use. Large grab handles on B-pillars make it easy for people to pull themselves up. Depending on where it is sold, the front-wheel drive NV200 gets power from one of two four-cylinder engines — the 1.6-litre gasoline engine used in the Versa sedan, or a Renault 1.5-litre turbodiesel that puts out 84 hp and 148 lb.-ft. of torque — both linked to a five-speed manual gear-

box. Stability control and antilock brakes with braking assist and electronic brake force distribution are standard. We expect just the gasoline engine will be available for North American commercial use. joe.duarte@sunmedia.ca
