By Jodi Lundmark - TB Source city police officer and her family are suing the Thunder Bay Police Service and the police services board for $29 million. A statement of claim was filed Tuesday on behalf of Const. Toni Grann, her husband and children; the claim states the police conducted a negligent investigation and malicious prosecution against Grann. Grann was charged in November 2010 with 11 counts of breach of trust when she was the Sex Offender Registry administrator. The Crown alleged she had falsified information, didn’t require offenders to come to the Balmoral Street station for verification and used the phone to verify details, which was against procedure. “She’s bringing the action because she feels there was a malicious prosecution,” said Nancy Erickson, the lawyer representing Grann. Justice Jennifer Hoshizaki found Grann not guilty of all charges in March 2012 and said the charges weren’t a criminal matter. Hoshizaki described Grann as an “incompetent employee who took dangerous shortcuts” but probably believed she was doing her job to the best of her ability. The claim alleges there was a “conspiracy in the police service to harass and overwork (Grann) so that she would quit her job.” While Grann was in charge of the

LAWSUIT: Const. Toni Grann was found not guilty of criminal charges in March 2012. Sex Offender Registry she was on a modified workload, working 20 hours a week.

Stress leave Duties kept being added to her workload and she went on stress leave in 2010, said Erickson. “She had been the Sex Offender Registrant for five years, had never had any criticism. She was the only one in that position. She asked for help many times. She was refused any assistance,” Erickson said. “She wasn’t even interviewed before she was charged by any of the police officers. She feels it was a negligent investigation.” After being acquitted of the criminal charges, Grann was facing several Police Act charges, but those

have been stayed. She is still on stress leave. The situation has also been difficult for Grann’s husband and four children, said Erickson. Her husband has lost business and her children have lost friendships. “Parents of her friends, some of them had made accusations she was doing something criminally wrong and that she was evil,” said Erickson. “It’s been very, very difficult and certainly the publicity during her trial was very, very strong. It’s caused a great deal of problems.” A spokesperson for Thunder Bay Police Service said they could not comment on the lawsuit. None of the allegations have been proven in court.

Condo developers ask for more units CITY HALL

By Matt Vis - TB Source emand for the units in the proposed condominium building at the Thunder Bay Country Club has helped lead to a design change, said project developers to Thunder Bay city council. Contractors for Club Residence Developments Inc. appeared before


council Monday requesting to amend policies of the official plan to increase the number of dwelling units. The initial plan outlined a proposal for 80 dwelling units, but the developers of the project were seeking an increase to 109, which council unanimously passed. The increase will not change the height of the proposed six-storey building. Instead, planning consultant

Syl Menic said, the design of the building will be modified on the south end. Coun. Iain Angus inquired about the status of the project, saying that he has heard many residents wonder about the timeline for completion. Developers said 80 per cent of the building’s foundation has either been completed or is in progress, and added two storeys are underground.

Investment to help ER patients Hospital gets $228K for nurses to help free up paramedics HEALTH CARE By Jodi Lundmark - TB Source n investment of more than $225,000 from the province will improve paramedic response times by putting more nurses in the emergency room. Liberal MPPs Bill Mauro (Thunder Bay-Atikokan) and Michael Gravelle (Thunder Bay-Superior North) announced $228,000 for nurses to treat patients that arrive at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre by ambulance with non life-threatening conditions. Superior-North EMS chief Norm Gale says this means paramedics and ambulances will be on the street rather than tied up in hallways at the hospital. “So when the next 911 call comes in, they’re closer to the call and their response time is quicker,” he said. “It means better patient care.

Superior North EMS lost 360 paramedic hours in 252 offload incidents in June 2012. Since 2009, Gale said they’ve seen successive increases in time para-

medics have spent waiting in the hospital hallway. The new system was implemented this spring through a partnership between EMS and the TBRHSC and Gale said they’ve seen a more than 70 per cent improvement in wait times. “It frees up our ambulances and frees up our paramedics from the

hospital where we don’t want them to be to go on the road where we do want them to be so they can respond when that 911 call comes in,” he said. The funding will go completely towards nursing resources. TBRHSC’s patient services executive vice-president and chief nurse executive Rhonda Crocker-Ellacott said they’ll now be able to bring in “We don’t additional nurses want to see when they know our patients there are peak ambulance offload sitting on challenges. stretchers “Having the waiting ...” extra resources in RHONDA nurses is really enabling us to CROCKERimprove the flow,” ELLACOTT she said. Having the funding from the province is an asset but CrockerEllacott said it goes together with a strategy formed by the emergency leadership team to improve the ER system in how they organize patients. “We don’t want to see our patients sitting on stretchers waiting for care,” she said. “We really want to get to those patients as quickly as we can.”

w w w. t b n e w s w a t c h . c o m HEARING: Sandy Zaitzeff agreed to a class certification consent with the city’s lawyers during a hearing Monday afternoon.

Class action certified Nearly 400 people have signed on to $375M flood lawsuit T H U N D E R B AY

By Matt Vis - TB Source significant hurdle has been cleared for the pending $375 million class-action lawsuit against the city. Counsel for both the plaintiffs and defendants agreed to consent certification of the class during a hearing at the Superior Court on Monday, which will allow the lawsuit to move forward. The suit was filed due to the failure of the sewage treatment plant during last May’s flooding. Sandy Zaitzeff, counsel for the plaintiffs, said the consent certification from the city will likely take at least one to two years off of the timeline for the process and save significant expenses for both sides. Zaitzeff, an attorney at Watkins Law, added the certification is not an admission of liability by either side, but is rather an acknowledgment that the plaintiffs have a strong enough case to proceed. “We have a very substantial report that is based on solid engineering and a review of the drawings of the plant, a tour of the plant and other evidentiary material we have produced as

well as just common knowledge that there were another 2,000 to 3,000 people who had sewage backup in their basements,” Zaitzeff said. “This was not a flood. This was a sewage treatment plant that was mismanaged and poorly operated and that’s why sewage backed up into people’s basements. It was negligence, we allege, in the operations of the plant.” He said the suit consists of nearly 400 people, but there are at least 2,000 others who are eligible to join.

Geographic boundaries He added that those eligible will be limited by the geographic boundaries of those who resided in the city’s East End, or the low-lying areas of Fort William, Northwood, or below High Street and the intercity area. Zaitzeff also added that the value of damages the lawsuit is pursuing is subject to change depending upon how many others add their name to the class. Next up for the case is the discovery process and exchange of documents, which Zaitzeff estimated will take approximately six months to a year. He is hopeful that during discovery

his side will receive some answers about what caused the failure of the sewage plant. The city will produce for us, under court order, literally thousands of documents and we’ll review them and many more drawings,” he explained. “We may again tour the plant or tour the city’s sewage collection system but our experts will get more material to review and the city will have to tell us what happened and why it happened on May 28 in the early hours of the morning. What did they do? They still haven’t told us.” City manager Tim Commisso spoke regarding the lawsuit following Monday’s council meeting. “We went to council two months ago and advised council how we wanted to proceed. It is to the city’s advantage to support the certification,” Commisso said. “There will actually be a notice coming out within the next 30 days that outlines it more. I’m not going to get into legal strategy but it puts the city in a better position to defend the class action lawsuit by having it certified because the focus will be on those affected by the plant.”

Archaic conclusion transgender person is just as normal. It’s hard to believe in 2013 some people still don’t understand that. Take, for example, a newspaper editorial that asked “how far are we going to allow for personal identity issues that collide head-on with public norms …” The statement responds to the story of a Saskatoon transgender bride’s discrimination complaint against a bridal shop that refused service based on a gender. The editorial and bridal shop appear to come to the archaic conclusion that a transgender person is not normal and therefore can be treated differently. The opinion piece continues “are businesses to be held to any and all standards that are demanded in spite of obvious difficulties.” Perhaps we should ask that question from a different perspective: Should a business that traditionally serves men be allowed to refuse service to women? In 1955 you could have said “yes” and had been aligned with the social norms of the day. Our social norms now conclude that gender discrimination is wrong. Discriminating against someone because their gender doesn’t match what was assigned to them at birth might be more complicated than the man-versuswoman gender debates of yesterday. It’s still gender discrimination. So editorial writers and bridal shop owners alike should be aware gender discrimination of any kind may collide head on with the public norms of 2013.

CLE clarifications To the editor: s president of the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition I am writing to clarify the situation in response to the recent innuendo regarding board activities. 1. Regrettably, due to a situation which the board was compelled to address because of legal implications Ms. Linda Gambee was democratically removed at a properly notified general meeting by a vote of 56-22. 2. Allegations ensued after the decision of the membership so I am now confirming that at no time has there been access to alcohol during, or at any board meetings, nor has anyone appeared at Board or committee meetings in any state of impairment. These allegations are a divergent smokescreen for the real reasons for the removal. Every board member understands the need to be personally responsible for their actions. 3. Like many volunteer organizations we like to socialize after


meetings. Our practice is to be responsible in keeping with the duties and expectations of elected Directors. 4. The personal attacks on our city council representatives and other board members are completely unwarranted. 5. Steve Clearwater and Kathy Thompson who have made these allegations still have their bar keys. Linda Gambee has returned her second bar key. As accusers should they not have returned their personal keys if they believed something was amiss? 6. The question remains that after more than 20 years on the board, why has Mr. Clearwater never brought this concern to the board if he truly believed there was an issue? 7. The CLE board takes its community role very seriously and will be discussing the councillors’ suggestions in the near future. We appreciate the advice and counsel that both Councillors Virdiramo and Boshcoff bring to our meetings. 8. The public should be aware that the Board has attempted to deal, as

most other organizations would, with personality conflicts within their meeting structures. In clarifying this issue I want people to understand that we are an unpaid volunteer group who are thoroughly dedicated to ensuring that the C.L.E. remains a viable facility to serve all the people of our District. Like most groups we believe internal concerns are best dealt with internally. 9. Our committees meet almost daily. Our volunteers help willingly on numerous programs that help improve our community. We will continue to assist with such great organizations as the Christmas Cheer Fund, as we have for the past 23 years! We look forward to working with their new chairwoman, Joleene Kemp. 10. A recent review of our insurance policies was very helpful to the board in understanding new types of coverages, limits, and deductibles. The board has already acted prudently on the advice of our Insurer and implemented many of his recommendations.

Trusting this helps set the record straight we look forward to continuing our positive relationship with the people of the District of Thunder Bay. Reta Stoger, President, C.L.E.

Hunting is booming To the editor:  r. Pepe does not know his facts and is simplifying a complex situation. Fishing vacations are struggling as a result of the U.S. and worldwide economic meltdown of 2008, but are on the rebound with incremental increases (remote and drive in). Hunting, on the other hand, is on a roll registering substantial increases in our local region. It’s hard to imagine the Terry Fox Lookout as a reliable indicator of the local health of tourism.

Once that Ring of Fire thing kicks in we will all be rich. It’s just a matter of time before the dividend cheques start rolling in – should be around 2015 or so.

He envisions a whole new generation of prosperity with thousands of new jobs and new, improved infrastructure for all. Who knows what highways he’ll be twinning next?

Man dies in crash ne man is dead following a singlevehicle crash Sunday night. Officers with the Thunder Bay detachment of the OPP are investigating the collision that took place in Devon Township. Police were called to the scene around 10:30 p.m. by a passing motorist who saw a man lying in a ditch beside a motorcycle. Police, fire, ambulance and Neebing first responders located the man deceased in a ditch beside a motorcycle. Police say Richard Cross, 50, of Thunder Bay, has been confirmed as the victim of the crash. Investigators believe the man lost control of his vehicle before leaving the roadway and crashing into the ditch. He was pronounced dead at the scene.


Bombardier fined pair of workplace injury cases in their Thunder Bay facility is going to cost Bombardier. The company has been fined a total of $280,000 over two separate injury cases at the rail-car plant, the Ministry of Labour announced last Friday. The first incident occurred in April 2012 after an employee had the tip of his finger crushed by a piece of equipment, leading to a partial amputation of the finger. The second incident occurred in July 2012 when a worker sustained arm and hand injuries after coming into contact with an electrical current. The Montreal-based company pleaded guilty in both cases, leading to a fine of $140,000 for each incident as well as a 25 per cent victim surcharge.

New Canadians




call the tbSOURCE at 346-2600

By Leith Dunick – TB Source amie Fassett fell in love with Canada as a child. A native of Rockford, Ill., it took just one visit for him to realize one day he wanted to call the wilderness of Northwestern Ontario home. On Wednesday, 12 years after arriving in the country, his wife and three sons made it official. The family was among 42 immigrants who took the oath and were sworn in as Canadian citizens. It was a proud day in the Fassett household. “My father, when I was about five years old, brought me to Canada on a fishing trip. We used to vacation in Northwestern Ontario. Ever since then I’ve always wanted to be here,” he said, moments after taking the oath. “I wanted to own a tourist camp and thought it would be a great life, to raise our family in the middle of Northwestern Ontario fishing and hunting every day.” Though his wife didn’t initially jump at the opportunity, she eventually came around and the family made the trek north of the border. About six years ago they decided to seek out citizenship. “We got our permanent resident status and in 2011 we applied for citizenship. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do since I’ve been here, but it took time,” he said. “There are a few hoops to jump through and a lot of paperwork and background checks. It’s taken awhile.” Son Jonah Fassett said he’s grown up Canadian and really doesn’t know any other life, despite being born and originally raised in Rockford, Ill. “I’ve been experiencing it for the last 12 years, but it means a lot to be official now,” he said. The 42 new citizens, who came from all four corners of the globe, were sworn in by Mississauga citizenship judge Wojciech

NEW HOME: Citizenship judge Wojciech Sniegowski welcomes a new citizen last Wednesday. Sniegowski, himself a 1983 immigrant who came to Canada from his native Poland, took a job as a taxi driver and spent 22 years in the television news industry. Encouraging the country’s newest citizens to take full advantage of their right to vote, he also reminded them that Canada was built on volunteerism, and finally told them it’s OK not to forget their roots while forging a new life in their new home. Sniegowski said it’s not easy to become a Canadian, adding everyone must pass a rigorous set of criteria before being considered. “There are a number of requirements. Obviously they have to make an application. They have to speak English or French at a certain level. They have to have a knowledge of Canada, which is really now more evolved,” he said. It might actually make them more knowledgeable than many born-and-bred Canadians, he said. “I would think that the majority of Canadians would have problems with passing the tests, which require a lot of learning.”

The board also requested approaching TBayTel to determine if they could provide assistance in creating a new system. At the meeting the board approved a $1,500 funding request from the Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma Program from the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for the second straight year. Last year the program had 12 sessions to educate youth about the potential trauma and risks involved with alcohol, and two at local high schools. Program co-ordinator Shelley Chisholm said this year she is aiming to up the number of sessions at high schools to four or five, and build on one at Churchill high school about having a safe graduation.

COURT By Jamie Smith - TB Source Thunder Bay man has been sentenced to life in prison for murder. Leif Hobson pleaded guilty to the 2009 death of 66-year-old Edgar Marion in April. An argument sparked between the two friends in July 2009, which led to Hobson beating Marion with his fists and a wooden butcher’s block. He then drove Marion’s body to the Shuniah Mines area and lit the car on fire with Marion’s body inside. He also set Marion’s apartment on fire after the murder in order to hide evidence. On Tuesday Superior Court Justice Bruce Fitzpatrick accepted a joint submission from the defence and Crown attorneys, which included concurrent sentences for indignity to a body, robbery with violence and arson, that makes Hobson eligible for parole in 15 years. In custody since 2009, Hobson will be eligible in 2024. Dressed in a black suit with a white shirt, the 23-year-old Hobson stared at the ground as Fitzpatirck read his sentence. The court heard that Hobson, originally from Whitefish Bay, lived a hard life with his father and stepmother before coming to Thunder Bay. “Which is pretty indicative of why he’s before the court,” his lawyer Gil Labine said. After the sentencing Labine said his client has shown remorse since the incident. He wrote a letter to Marion’s family, who were watching the sentencing by video Tuesday morning. Hobson confessed to the murder in January. “He did that voluntarily and on his own in order to put an end to this matter and provide comfort and solace to the Marion family,” Labine said. Hobson has requested he serve his sentence in Kent, B.C., a maximum security prison that has Aboriginal rehabilitative programming. “It will allow him to start fresh with a different type of population,” Labine said.

Red Nose support rewarded THUNDER BAY

Bty Matt Vis - TB Source ougall Media's support of the local Operation Red Nose campaign has earned it national recognition. St. John Ambulance awarded Dougall Media with the Mark Dailey Media Award, a distinction that is presented to only one media organization each year across Canada for promoting awareness of community services. Stephanie Bateman, fund development and marketing coordinator of St. John Ambulance, said the company received the award in large part for its support of the annual Operation Red Nose campaign. “It’s a really great campaign and Dougall Media has been instrumental in promoting the message of safety and awareness for that campaign,” Bateman said. “Since 2009, the inception of the program, Dougall Media has been one of the major partners in this campaign. They provide a $48,000 sponsorship to this campaign and promote it not only through radio, but in print, online, and on television.”

Operation Red Nose, which will be entering its fifth year of operation, is a community-wide initiative that provides volunteer drivers to provide people a ride home in their own vehicles who find themselves unfit to operate a motor vehicle. Traditionally people find themselves using the

service because they've had too much to drink, or they're just too tired to safely get behind the wheel. Bateman said while Dougall Media is not the first Thunder Bay organization to receive the award, it has been a while since a local company has received this honour.

By Matt Vis - TB Source he roaring motorcycles and leather jackets may look intimidating, but the biker community in the city showed their heart by loading bikes full of toys to donate to underprivileged children. More than 100 bikers hopped aboard their motorcycles and trekked across Thunder Bay to take part in the 30th annual Toys for Tots Ride in support of the Salvation Army on Saturday. Major Rob Kerr, executive director of the Salvation Army, said the generosity of the bikers is admirable. “Part of it is that these are men and women who have a very soft heart. They may look tough on the outside but they’re soft on the inside. What they’re doing is trying to help somebody else. I think it really goes a long way for them to come together as bikers of the community and do this and make a difference,” Kerr said. “There are children out there who


without the support just would not have toys this Christmas.” The ride began at the Harley-Davidson dealership on Arthur Street just after 1 p.m. and then proceeded through the city, concluding at the Salvation Army building on Cumberland Street. Motorcycle clubs that participated included the Harley Owners Group, Bondslave Motorcycle Club, Superior Riders, Ontario Northwest Retreads, Team Code 3, and Infidels MC. It is this visibility of the large contingent of motorcycles traveling across the entire city that Kerr said helps give the kick off to the cause such an impact. “Obviously the bikes get people’s attention,” he said. “When they see they’re following behind the Salvation Army van and it says Toys for Tots on the side it hopefully reminds other people that maybe they should be doing something too, and give a toy or two or make a donation that is going to help out somebody else’s Christmas.”

Bikers show heart in toy campaign

REVVED UP: Paul Goodwin shows the toy he selected to donate to the Salvation Army. Many of the riders have participated in the event for years, such as 49-yearold Paul Goodwin who has been involved for the past 10 years and said he enjoys knowing he is helping to

brighten a child’s Christmas. “I’ve been doing this every year for a while,” Goodwin said. “It’s a good cause and something we should be doing.”

While Christmas is still a little more than three months away, Kerr emphasized that it is not too early to start donating, and that the campaign would prefer to receive donations earlier rather than at the last minute. “The important thing to remember is that we’re giving out toys before Christmas,” Kerr explained, and added that toys can be donated at their Cumberland Street location, the church on Victoria Avenue, or at any of their thrift stores. “When we’re getting toys on Christmas Eve it’s very hard for us to get those out to people, but when we get them ahead of time we can get them into the hands of the families and the children that really do need them.” While he does not have any children of his own, Goodwin enjoys the process of selecting a toy for a child, and said that if it looks fun to him it should definitely be fun for kids. “I buy the toy I like to give to the kids so I know they are going to enjoy it too,” he said.

Food donations critical THUNDER BAY

By Matt Vis - TB Source he number of people in Thunder Bay relying on the Shelter House for meals is on the rise, which makes the need for food donations all the more imperative. That’s the message from Tessa Murray, the volunteer coordinator of the Shelter House as she was speaking from the Metro location on River Street during the organization’s annual fall food drive on Saturday morning. The fall food drive is the largest of the year for the Shelter House, and Murray said the annual event usually brings in around 4,000 kilograms of food. “We feed about 200 people at each meal time so we’re feeding about 700 mouths a day so this food definitely helps us in our ability to feed the community in a massquantity,” Murray explained. “We see that our shelter beds are consistently full. The number of people coming to the shelter to eat is definitely going up so we’re seeing a steady increase. We just want to be prepared so everyone gets fed.” The drive was held at grocery stores throughout the city on Thunder Bay. Participating in the initiative were the three Metro locations, Westfort Foods, and the

Walmart location on Memorial Avenue. Murray estimated that meeting the donations goal will ensure that the organization is stocked with enough food to last at least until the Christmas season. Volunteer groups present at the different sites included the Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s basketball team, St. John ambulance, OLG Casino, and the Thunder Bay Rotary Club. Murray added that it’s difficult for staff to continue to see so many people in the city

requiring assistance, and hopes the organization can play a role in helping those in need get back on their feet. “It’s really tough for us. We see people that maybe have just had hard luck. We see people consistently, which is really tough. It’s something that we’re hoping will eventually get better. It’s something we don’t want to see continue,” she said. “We’re hoping that by us offering this food we can help people better themselves in the long run.”

Must have fall fashions

hanging seasons is an excellent reason (or excuse) to change out your wardrobe. You might be starting to unpack your sweaters and winter wear now that the weather is cooling off (but did we ever really have a summer?). This is one of the best times to shop for me. I love the change out of summer clothes for warmer clothes. I feel like there are a great many more things that one can do with accessories and clothing in the fall than in the summer. I really appreciate a few good quality pieces that last. Here are a few things on my must-buy list for this season. I love, LOVE, L.O.V.E. a good leather boot. Not just any leather boot and certainly not the pleather boot (genuine leather from a plastic cow). I like something that is knee high with a decent tread on the sole. A short heel is nice too. Something maybe up one inch is perfect. It says, “Hey, I am a lady” without being impractically painful. Something comfortable that can be worn all day is a good quality that I look for in a boot


tunic sweaters and leggings or skinny jeans. since I am on my feet a lot. The worst thing that happens with tall Leggings and skinny jeans fit better into boots is that they often get clammy inside boots than a flared pant leg. I find that if you pair a longer sweater with which can cause all sorts of stink and problems for you. If you opt for one size up leggings or skinny jeans that most women can pull off this look. The key to the longer and layer your socks this may help. Way back in the day when I was in Army sweater is it needs to be long enough in the back to cover the bum Cadets, I would wear a cheeks. regular sock and wear This is also the time to wool socks over top.

You want some flies with that? o I walk into our kitchen Thursday morning to go about my usual routine of making coffee and feeding our pooches only to discover that I’m being buzzed by flies – lots of flies. “Wait!We are three days away from official autumn,” I thought. “Aren’t these nasty, biting tormenters all supposed to be dead by now?” In theory, yes. Ordinarily, no question. But “ordinary” repeated seasonal expectations of change have been thrown out along with the theory. The predictability of what’s next is kaput. Why? I dunno. Blame it on global warming, climate change but the cold and rotten summer we experienced in this neck of the woods has been followed by unexpectedly warm temperatures. Hence the prolonged life of ankle biters, flies that resemble small house flies but are very fast and inflict a vicious bite. Now, we have a lever door handle on our front door. My dog, Cedric, learned early on how to jump up and press down on said lever to open said door. If the weather is decent, I’ve taken to locking the door so that all of his attempts to gain entry without my say-so are for naught. But, I sometimes forget to latch the door. So when he decides that he’s had enough of the glorious outside, he repeats his maneuver and in he comes – along with a dozen flies. If I’m in our sitting room or in the kitchen, I can get to the door to close it fairly quickly. But if I’m ensconced in my La-Z-Boy chair down in my library in the basement, I only know that Ceddy has reentered Casa Jones when he suddenly shows. Now it is mad dash time up the stairs to get that door closed. Who knows how many winged pests have managed to infest our hoosie? We have a third pup, Baxter by name, belonging to our son Doug. Baxter has only just left official puppyhood but he still has lots of romp and mischief in his jaws and paws (his nickname is Shredder).



My wife Laura quickly recognized that Baxter is very smart, a very quick study. Example: our friend Wendy was coming to drop off her dog while she drove to town to buy groceries. Wendy refuses to take a dog in her car when it is plus 25 or 30 even if she did leave the car windows open. “Much better for him to be with friends in a cool house rather than alone in a sweltering car,” she declared. No argument. Totally agree. Laura was in town and I was on one of my daily health walks. We’d told Wendy that the screen door would be unlatched and the sliding door unlocked so that she could bring her dog inside. Now Baxter happened to be outside when Wendy arrived. She told us later that he watched as she opened the screen door never having seen this operation before. But he didn’t see her open the sliding door. When I returned from my trek, I discovered Baxter inside the house. “Oh,” I thought, “Wendy must have let Baxter in.” She had not. Baxter had pushed open the screen door and then figured out how to open the sliding door. Oops. Baxter opens the front door as well. He must have seen Cedric do it and then followed suit. Now I have double jeopardy when it comes to open doors and incoming flies not to mention when the temperature drops. That Thursday morning, I spent one and a half hours flailing about with my fly swatter but they just kept on coming. When, oh when, will a good freeze come to rid me of this scourge?

Safe Walk targets solvent abuse E very September for the past 14 years, more than 100 city residents gather to take part in the Safe Walk. The event is hosted by the Ka-Na-Chi-Hih solvent abuse treatment centre on Dease Street. It’s meant to address and discuss the issue of solvent abuse in Thunder Bay. The hope is that people will start to work

on cleaning up the community around them, making it safer and completely free of solvents. Safe Walk organizer Jessica Wilhelm says the gathering is not only inspirational, informative and interactive, but it helps show how serious the issue of solvent abuse is here in Thunder Bay.

Symbol of peace erected Rotary Clubs of Thunder Bay dedicated peace pole at Prince Arthur’s Landing T H U N D E R B AY

By Matt Vis - TB Source

isitors to the city’s waterfront will now see a new monument overlooking Lake Superior celebrating peace. The Rotary Clubs of Thunder Bay held the formal dedication to their new peace pole, which is located on Saul Laskin Drive in Prince Arthur’s Landing at a ceremony on Saturday. The event coincided with the United Nations International Day of Peace, which is held annually since 2001 on September 21. The date provided Irene Sottile, past president of the Fort William Rotary Club and chair of the Peace Pole Committee, with an opportunity to unveil the city’s newest monument to the community. “It’s a worldwide symbol,” Sottile explained. “There are over 250,000 peace poles all over the world to promote peace all over the world. It’s also very important for the rotary organization because the rotary is known for promoting peace, goodwill and understanding amongst all nations and people.” The idea for a peace pole in Thunder Bay first arose in 2005, when the local groups wanted to celebrate the 100th anniversary of rotary. The group elected to wait until the completion of the Prince Arthur’s Landing project to install the pole, which overlooks the harbour and the iconic Sleeping Giant. The pole is inscribed with “May Peace



SINGALONG: Rotarian Kevin Holloway (pictured with guitar) led a chorus of Give Peace A Chance at the dedication of the new Rotary Peace Pole at Prince Arthur's Landing on Saturday. Prevail on Earth,” and is written in both English and French, as well as Ojibwa. Sottile stressed that the peace pole is not singularly celebrating world peace, but added that it also can have a much more personal meaning. “There are so many ways to reflect on peace, such as peace for yourself, your family, your community, and the world,” she said. “Peace can be interpreted in so many

different ways, just by laughing and singing every day or doing a kind deed and helping somebody who needs some peace.” Attending the dedication was Thunder Bay mayor Keith Hobbs, as well as Thunder Bay-Superior North MP Bruce Hyer and Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP John Rafferty. The ceremony celebrated diversity, as many different Thunder Bay international groups were represented. City of Thunder Bay Aboriginal liaison Ann Magiskan led a smudging ceremony, and 11-year-old Bryndis Ventrudo, a Grade 6 student at St. Martin school, performed a poetry recital. For the mayor, celebration of diversity on an international day celebrating peace and acceptance was an ideal occasion. “On an International Day of Peace I think it is very fitting. There is so much strife in the world right now and Thunder Bay is such a peaceful community and Canada is such a peaceful country,” Hobbs said. “It was great to see all the diverse people out here today. We are the sixth most diverse city of our size in North America, and it was great to see we were so wellrepresented by the world.” The peace pole now gives Rotarians a permanent location to mark future celebrations of the day. “This is just the very first of what will be an annual peace day event that the Rotarians of Thunder Bay will hold for the community,” Sottile said.

On September 26-28th RAVE ON: Jeff Giles (right) plays the title role in Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story playing at Magnus Theatre until Oct. 5.


Buddy Holly Story rocks Magnus Theatre’s opener is revealing glimpse into record industry THEATRE REVIEW

By Linda Maehans - TB Source agnus opens a new season of the best professional theatre in the city with an absolute firecrackersparkler of a show. Buddy: the Buddy Holly Story by Alan James has it all. First and foremost, it’s a true story ‘bout a down-home guy with remarkable passion for his signature style of music, rockabilly-rock ‘n roll, and loyalty to his band called the Crickets. It’s also a revealing glimpse into contrivance and greed in the recording industry of the day, or any day for that matter. It’s a tale of true love and tragedy. And testament to what is most genuine and unstoppable in the boundary-free league of musicians who put heart and soul into what they love. There’s enough energy throughout this show to launch a rocket or two. Or at least light the entire night sky between New York City and Lubbock, a small town in Texas where back in the ’40s and ’50s most folks tuned into the gentle twang of KVAD, DJ Hipockets Duncan at the



mic. Actor Mark Weatherley comes across with just the right mix of laidback ease and his character’s growing sense of excitement around the discovery of Buddy and the boys. Nice lead into everything else that follows. There are too many talents, especially music-wise, to detail in this writer’s limited word space. Acting-wise: let the spotlight continue now and ever to shine on the one who plays Buddy Holly. Jeff Giles has us feeling like we’ve travelled back to Lubbock and met the real deal at the local diner, likely interrupted by a phone call from his mom to ask if he’s eaten. Musically at instant ease at his mic, and also at whatever stage of his character’s young life he is portraying, Giles is a wonderful combination of sincerity, naivety and relentless drive. Holly Wyder, as Buddy’s wife Maria Elena Santiago in act two, successfully conveys to us why she really did fall in love with him as soon as he walked into the room; she leaves no doubt about it. We also see Thunder Bay-born actor Wyder in other roles in this show: nicely done. As said, too many individual

talents to describe here; but a couple of standouts for these musical ears are Michael Clarke with his sexy jazzy saxophone; and Michelle E. White with her powerhouse voice and dynamic on-stage presence. Also Jacob MacInnis, acting as The Big Bopper: if only the idea of chantilly lace could sound so good over mere telephone lines today! And Abraham Asto as Ritchie Valens: the way your pelvis moves, you more than give Elvis a ride for the money. Let’s see what else you can do! On gala opening night this show generated a spontaneous standing ovation followed by another rousing encore by all the musicians live on stage. Crackling energy that began with “a one-two-three…and blasted off from there. Go see hear the story of Buddy Holly: truly over-the-top inspiring. Music director is Danny Johnson; set and lighting by Doug Robinson and Adam Parboosingh; costumes by Mervi Agombar; stage manager Gillian Jones and Mario Crudo directs. Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story raves on here in Thunder Bay until Oct. 5, 2013.

Martin brings Mended World to TBAG ART

By Linda Maehans - TB Source

udy Martin has been here before. Literally, yes originally she hails from Fort Frances in Northwestern Ontario; nowadays this artist makes her home on Manitoulin Island. Currently, here in autumn of 2013 Martin’s textile-and-time-rich exhibit entitled Mended World is on display in the third space at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. Walking in, one moves clockwise through the space. First on the complete left-hand wall hangs a “living highway” of material looped floor to ceiling. It consists of recycled fabrics cut and rolled into uniform 14-inch widths, each coiled with glossy embroidery thread, one hue and shade leading harmoniously into the next. Standing close-up is one way to regard these stitches. Standing at the far end at an angle produces a completely different visual effect, a whole new landscape. The length of this handstitched highway is a mind-boggling 225 feet. On the next wall, a similar Cloud of Time only 14 inches by 500 inches is a work-in-progress. Next to it is Martin’s title piece of the exhibit. Close up we see all the stitches, either by hand or some by expert measurements on a machine. Stand back and we are regarding a pale sphere that could be planet Earth if one imagines uniform horizontal dots and lines of pale blue as

An outer space of pure white is an interesting concept. Can you imagine? Anyone who’s read Saramago’s Idea for Blindness (1998 Nobel Prize for literature) would know what I mean.

Then stand close to Earth Ark: note the stitches, the materials used. The lace: “too pretty to use, but no one would/could throw it away. I’ve been given all this material.” Peer close to Precious Water: eerie for the texture of the “water;” imagined from a satellite

view of an earth of many hands. When asked if the message of her exhibit concerns time and reincarnation, Judy smiled in recognition. “You’re the viewer I’ve wanted to hear say that. Yes, there are so many different kinds of time. There’s the length of it, as we can see in Not to Know But To Go On. We can see how long a year is, how long three-years is. Then there’s that kind of circular time you’re thinking about: that which we hold inside ourselves, the memories of our childhood, our mothers, or thoughts of ‘maybe I could do that’ and then we move off and away into some other dream or hope. All the while working on these pieces, and realizing in our private thoughts this has nothing to do with our daily lives, the here and now. It’s suddenly where time has just taken us; could be what you remember, maybe what someone has just said. This elusive kind, time that goes back and forth, back and forth; that’s what leads to self-understanding. It’s like when you are in nature, all by yourself on a big hillside looking out to the horizon: you see all those little wavelets and suddenly understand something different, are transformed just a little bit. That’s the kind of time I want my viewer(s) to experience with this exhibit.” Martin’s Mended World is here until October 27, 2013.

City gets Oktoberfest party Brewery teams up with local rotary club to host festival THUNDER BAY By Jamie Smith - TB Source leeping Giant Brewery found the perfect way to give back to the community. The local company and the Port Arthur Rotary Club have teamed up to bring Thunder Bay its first Oktoberfest. Rotary clubs across North America have been holding similar events and spokesman Johnny DeBakker said it's about time Thunder Bay started rolling out the barrels. “It's basically a celebration of German culture,” he said. Handmade pretzels, authentic bratwurst and even live polka will be on tap Friday, Oct. 11 at the CLE Coliseum. But no Oktoberfest would be complete without beer and Sleeping Giant has a special brew in the making, a first-time lager. Typically smaller breweries don’t tend to make lagers because of the extra time it takes to make. However, Sleeping Giant Brewery’s co-owner Kerry Berlinquette said it was time they gave it a shot. “We’ve been watching this one ferment for the past few weeks so we’re really excited to see how it turns out,” she said. The event is hoping to see around 1,000 people attend. Money raised will go to local charities, which have yet to be named. Any organization wishing to apply for the funding can visit

Laughter: the best medicine ccording to a 1996 study described in “The Laughter-Immune Connection,” laughing can lower blood pressure, increase blood flow, boost the immune system and improve sleep patterns. Furthermore, it can give the diaphragm, abdominal, intercostal, respiratory system and facial muscles a complete workout. Consequently, in our goodbody health-conscious society, laughter is finding its way into new parts of our lives such as yoga and even therapy. So it’s no surprise comedies are a welcome and yes, I’ll say it, necessary part of the fall lineup. But this year, I’m especially excited about four new ones. First, welcome back Michael J. Fox. I fell for Alex P. Keaton in the ’80s. Then it was Marty McFly, followed by Mike Flaherty. But the last decade I was left alone … adrift … bereft. Fortunately, The Michael J. Fox Show (Sept. 25, 9 p.m.) has brought one of


America’s most beloved sitcom stars back with the most unimaginatively named show this fall. Fox stars as a newscaster who retired due to his Parkinson’s diagnosis to spend time with his family. However, the family love is getting a little hard to take … for the family. So he’s heading back to work. It could be early incontinence, but the previews were so funny, I think I peed a little. Sean Hayes of Will & Grace fame is also back with a new show. This time, he’s so much more than “Just Jack.” In Sean Saves the World (once again, a creative failure in the name game), he’s a gay, divorced dad who is suddenly living with his teenage daughter. He goes just an itsy bit over the top to be THE BEST DAD EVER, which is not exactly appreciated by his daughter or his new boss. I like this Sean. And his offspring is much more than the annoying cardboard cutout sitcom character. The series premieres Oct. 2 at 9 p.m. Although not exactly original, Welcome to

the Family (Oct. 3, 8 p.m.) stars my favourite TV dad, Mike O’Malley. The actor reached nearly cult-hero-worship as Glee’s Burt Hummel, the single, bluecollar father to an artsy, flashy and undeniably gay son. In Family, all his dreams for his little girl are crushed when she announces she’s pregnant and getting married. The groom’s family isn’t exactly thrilled about this either. And finally, Will Arnett stars in The Millers (Oct. 3, 8:30 p.m.) – not to be mistaken for the film We’re the Millers, which involves a pot dealer, a stripper and a Winnebago. It goes like this: Nathan announces he’s gotten a divorce. His dad decides that’s not a bad idea. So Dad leaves Mom to move in with the daughter and Mom decides to move in with the son. As an adult child dealing with a “mature” parent myself, some scenes had me once again reaching for the Depends.

Marathon sees new winner RUNNING

By Matt Vis - TB Source

he air temperature may have been chilly at the start of the race, but the newest winner of the Thunder Bay Marathon burned up the course. Evans Maiko Momanyi dethroned two-time defending champion Gilbert Kiptoo and captured the fourth annual Thunder Bay Marathon: Miles with the Giant in a time of 2:27 on Sunday. Momanyi was competing in his second event in Thunder Bay, after placing as the runner-up in last year’s half-marathon. The temperature caught the Hamilton-based Kenyan off guard, as the race began in temperatures that dipped below the freezing point. “The race was nice but it was so cold,” he said. “My hands were so cold.” Kiptoo, the four-time winner of the Firefighters’ Ten Mile Road Race held in the spring, finished in the runner-up spot in a time of 2:34. Local runner Nikki Wilberforce was the winner of the women's race for the third time in four years, as the Rosslyn resident crossed the line in 3:05. After the opening gun to start the race, Kiptoo assumed the lead and began the 26.2-mile (42.1 kilometres) run at what Momanyi described as a fast pace. Momanyi was determined to hold on to Kiptoo, and began to make his move around the halfway point. “We were starting at a high-pace and I followed him, followed him, and followed him up until 15 kilometres and then I started pushing ahead. After at least 29 kilometres I pushed up to the finish.” The finishing time for Momanyi is the fastest since the marathon adopted the



CHAMP: Evans Maiko Momanyi is the first to cross the line in the men's marathon. full marathon route prior to last year’s race. The first two installments of the race featured two 13.1 mile loops. This year’s race ran a lot more smoothly than last, as the 2012 event was marred by Kiptoo having to overcome a deficit after being led astray and a half-marathon runner took a wrong turn and inadvertently took a short cut and crossed the finish line first, but admitted the mistake. This time there was no hitch for the leaders of the event, as Momanyi

praised the course and the work done by volunteers and organizers to keep the route clear and well-marked. “This round the course was very nice,” he said. “There were lots of people who were showing us the way to go and they were very organized.” Barry Streib, president and chair of the event, said the committee kept the course the exact same as last year, and added that the vast majority of people responded favourably. “Our runners seem to be very happy

with the full marathon course, and it is certified as a qualifier for the Boston Marathon and other marathons,” Streib said. “We are going to expand on that, and ensure that the course is suitable for the runners and we love to have feedback so we have ways to improve if we have to.” Wilberforce added another title to her impressive resume, and was boosted by positive hometown support throughout her run. “It was just really nice to be out there and have all of those people cheering you on again,” she said. “It’s nice to be known in the city. There were lots of people that knew my name out there and it was really helpful.” Thunder Bay's Mark Maronese was the top local male in the marathon, as he placed third for the second straight year. Last year he narrowly missed out on the top local distinction to Jonas Holmberg, and said that was a prime reason why he chose to try again this year. He added that he had back issues as recently as Friday, and was not sure if he was even going to be able to compete. “My back was pretty sore and tight prior to starting, so I just tried to stay within myself and hope for the best. I toughed it out,” Maronese said. “Honestly, it was to be a shot at coming top-three. I saw that we always had two Kenyans taking the top spot, and there was a local fellow coming third, and I thought I would try to be top local in the marathon.” Josephat Ongari of Hamilton was the top half-marathon finisher as he completed the course in a time of 1:07. Thunder Bay’s Lisa Alaimo won the women’s half-marathon, finishing sixth overall in 1:23.

Morrison takes leave to coach in the U.S. BASKETBALL

By Matt Vis - TB Source

he Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s basketball team will look to navigate through their season with a familiar, yet new guiding voice coming from the sidelines. Lakehead hoops head coach Scott Morrison will take a professional leave of absence beginning in mid-October to work as a guest coach with the NBA Development League’s Maine Red Claws, an affiliate of the Boston Celtics. Morrison, who would have entered his 11th season as the Thunderwolves’ bench boss, will yield control of a team that has advanced to the CIS Final 8 weekend for four straight years, and lost in the final just over six months ago, to longtime assistant Matt Erdman. “There’s no good time to go, I suppose in a lot of ways, but the opportunity


came up. It was an opportunity that would allow me to stay for the first couple of months of the season and kind of get things settled with the new players we have so it wasn’t like I wasn’t going to be here all year,” Morrison said prior to his team’s practice at the CJ Sanders Fieldhouse Thursday evening. “It’s definitely going to be tough to miss the games and watch the guys progress through the year but I think with the veterans we have and the assistant coaches we have the ability to stay for me a couple of months is a good situation for everybody involved.” Despite the changing of the guard and the fact the Thunderwolves’ return just five players from last year’s national runner-up squad, Erdman knows there are still high expectations for the team he will inherit for the rest of the year. The list of graduated players formed the nucleus of the program, and includes

two-time CIS defensive player of the going to be the same,” Erdman said, who year Greg Carter, franchise all-time will be entering his ninth season at leading rebounder Yoosrie Salhia, Joseph Lakehead in a coaching capacity.

There will be a lot of chal- nament. From there, the job is Erdman’s straight lenges here. We have a young team, but at the end of the day the expectations are through to the end of the campaign.

Even though Erdman has been his right-hand man for years and is loaded with a wealth of experience Morrison, who guaranteed he will return next season, acknowledges the transition can’t be taken for granted. “It’ll be a tough transition no matter what we do. Just going from assistant to head coach is tough,” Morrison admitted. “Luckily for me, most of what we built Matt has been a part of. He’s been here the whole time I’ve been here, and he’s had a big say in a lot of the stuff we’ve ended up doing over the last few years. “I’m also confident the players will have the common sense to know that he’s qualified to do the job, he has the experience and for us to be successful they’ll have to give him the same kind of respect that they would have given me if I was here,” Morrison continued.
