Celebrate Pride Week Saturday By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Community – The LGBT of Lanark County’s Civitan Club will celebrate Pride Week with a parade here on Saturday. Co-chair Lorrie Britton-Reid says things are coming together. “This is our third year for hosting Pride events, but only the first year we will be hosting a parade in Perth,” said Britton-Reid. “We’re really excited about it, and hoping to have lots of entries in the parade.” The parade will start from The Stewart School at 3 p.m. but be there early to line up, she said. “We will be starting off by 3 p.m. so we want people to be there before hand to get in line,” she said. “We will have new cars of every colour of the Pride rainbow with balloons filled with helium floating above them.” The week, June 7 to 14, is filled with events in Carleton Place and Perth, starting June 7 in Rideau Ferry with a beach party picnic at the yacht club. Guests should bring a lawn chair, lunch and drinks for an afternoon at the yacht club of socializing

and entertainment. “We want folks to come with their volleyballs, nets, Frisbees… and also bring along a sense of humour,” Lorrie said. The beach party will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. There will be a $6 charge to enjoy the conservation area, which is complete with a sandy beach area. On Sunday, June 8, a rainbow church service will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. followed by a fellowship at the Zion-Memorial United Church, 37 Franklin St., Carleton Place. A bowling and card night will be held at Visions Bowling Centre, 49 Bridge St., Carleton Place on Thursday, June 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. There will be two games of bowling (plus shoes) for $9.50 per person. For anyone who would like to just play cards, there is no fee. Call 613-253-0094 for more information on this event. The LGBT Civitan Club is donating $200 to the Youth Action Kommittee (YAK) of Perth to host a youth dance on Friday, June 13. Following the parade Saturday, a dance will take place at the Perth Legion June 14, featuring the Commuters. Tickets are $15 each at the door, and children under 12, free.

News – Perth resident Andre Hissink will be representing Dutch veterans of the Second World War when the 70th anniversary of D-Day is marked tomorrow (June 6). Hissink, a resident at the Carolina Suites, flew out to Paris, France with his daughter this past Monday, and he was excited to be helping lay a wreath in memory of his fallen Dutch comrades. “This was totally unexpected,” said Hissink. “The French were looking for someone to hang a decoration on. They were looking for Canadian veterans. I answered. I said, ‘I wasn’t a Canadian veteran. I was with the Dutch naval services.’” On June 5, he will be taking part in a wreath laying at a Canadian cemetery in France, where thousands of our nation’s dead lie buried. Though it will be the Dutch government that will be footing his bill, with the Canadians expecting him to travel to France on his own, he will then submit his receipts for reimbursement afterwards for up to $2,000. “Where do I stay in Normandy? The place will be full,” said Hissink. With the Canadians, “you are on your own.” Then, “out of the blue, I got a phone call from Holland.” A commander with the Dutch Naval Air Service told him that they would fly him to France, and pay for his accommodation at a castle in Normandy, as part of a Dutch delegation. “Going Dutch is something!” he said with a laugh. “With them I didn’t have to do a damn thing.” While he is in Europe, he will meet with the five remaining members of Royal Air Force squadron 320, who will be journeying from all over the world. “We are all getting long in the tooth and slowly disappearing,” he said.

War’s family toll For Hissink and his family, the war took a very personal toll, changing its course forever. Aged 94 now, he was born in the Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia, in 1919, before moving back to Europe with his family at age eight. The war started on Sept. 2, 1939 when Nazi Germany invaded Poland. “I wanted to become a lawyer,” he said during an interview on Thursday, May 29. “I never made it. I got my call up in my third year,” specifically, on Oct. 3, 1939. “A week later, I was in uniform.” On May 5, 1940, the Nazis invaded Holland. He was stationed in the major port city of Rotterdam at the time, which suffered a heavy onslaught, with Nazi paratroopers engaging in street fighting. “Luckily I was on the outskirts of the city where they were digging a traffic tunnel,” said Hissink. He and his fellow Dutch servicemen sheltered in the mouth of the tunnel. When the bombardment from the Luftwaffe ended, the men emerged from the tunnel, and what he saw stayed with him forever. “The city was ablaze,” said Hissink softly. “I said, ‘That is indecent.’ That made an impression,” as a giant cloud of smoke lifted up over the city’s smoldering remains. “We got quite a bit upset,” said Hissink. “It was a sight that was really upsetting to see.” By this point, his men had lost contact with headquarters but, shortly, afterwards, word reached them that the commanding general of the Dutch forces had decided to surrender. The officers told their men, all 60 waiting by a dyke at the side of the road: “You can do what you like. You can surrender, or you can do what we are going to do. We are going south to Belgium and then to France,” he remembered being told.

Incumbent Hillier insists he is still a Hudak cabinet contender desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – If Tim Hudak’s Progressive Conservatives form the next government at Queen’s Park on June 12, MPP Randy Hillier has not ruled himself out of contention for a cabinet position. The Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP was removed from his duties as the Tory Labour Critic last summer by Hudak, following a disagreement about labour legislation. But when pressed about the unlikelihood that a possible Hudak cabinet would not include Hillier amongst its ranks, Hillier bristled. “Why would you say it is not likely?” he asked. “You are reading far too much (into it.)” Hillier had a falling out with Hudak about legislation that would have allowed construction company Ellis Don to hire non-union workers. Hillier ended up voting with the NDP against the bill, and he was dismissed after internal emails sent by Hillier to party brass were leaked to the media. But Hillier said he feels that the fall-out may stand him well. “There is a level of regard that people have for shooting straight,” he said. “I would not suggest for a moment that, in the world of hypotheticals, that everything is set in stone.” His confidence stems, in part, he says, from his record in Toronto, where says he has “introduced more legislation than any other member at Queen’s Park,” including recall legislation, a bill calling for the repeal of Bill 119, tax and expenditure legislation – all told, about

14 bills introduced since 2011, seven more than the nearest member, who has introduced seven bills. He has also put forward 30 motions in the house, on everything from improving diagnostics and testing for Lyme disease to getting Carleton Place a new hospital. This is Hillier’s third election in seven years, first winning the seat in 2007, and while he sets that first race in a separate category, this election and the 2011 race, are, for him, carbon copies – including two of the three opposition candidates he is running against. This time out, however, some of the legislation he railed against two-and-a-half-years ago has come to fruition. The Green Energy Act, for example, passed in 2009 and became law a year later and now the full effects of that legislation are being felt, leading to one of this campaign’s front-and-centre issues. “The biggest issue is the ability to keep up with the cost of living,” said Hillier, the cost of hydro being “the most acute example of that…The people are just absolutely frustrated. It’s more than annoyed.” He pointed to a deal signed by the American state of New Hampshire with Hydro Quebec to purchase electricity at a rate of 4 ½ cents per kilowatt hour. In Ontario, however, “we put in place (a) 20-year contract to buy windmill power at 80 cents a kilowatt hour,” which has led to inflated energy costs. To combat this, Hillier said his party would ensure that there are no more solar or wind contracts put forward, would end green energy subsidies, and that local governments would have more control on the existing contracts. However,

Randy Hillier the contracts that have already been signed might be harder to regulate. “We do have the authority cancel those (existing) contracts, but their could be a very negative consequence to that,” said Hillier, as businesses need a certain level of confidence that contracts they sign with the government will be honoured. A PC government would also seek out cheaper hydro-electric contracts with Manitoba and Quebec, as well as resurrecting a Tory motion to get rid of the debt charge to clear the old Ontario Hydro debt. “From all the indicators, more than enough money has been taken from peo-

EMBERS CAN HELP MAKE YOUR VISION A REALITY

Planning your outdoor kitchen Spring has arrived and so have magazines filled with beautifully designed outdoor kitchens to dream about. The dream can become a reality with a practical plan in place. As with interior spaces the outdoor kitchen needs to be both functional and fit your lifestyle. Choosing a grill is the most important part of planning your outdoor kitchen. Embers offer a selection of grill sizes in natural gas and propane as well we carry the Big Green Egg charcoal BBQ. If you are interested in quick cooking you want a gas grill, if you want to experience the low smoked flavors of food adding a charcoal BBQ is a must. Knowing how you are going to use your space and a typical crowd size while using your outdoor kitchen will help with determine layout and which appliances should go in your outdoor

ple to discharge the debt,” said Hillier. However, the Liberals and NDP defeated this motion in the last session, though he promised it would be reintroduced after this month’s election. While the Green Party is bringing back its proposal for a carbon tax, Hillier’s party is proposing the polar opposite – a tax on green energy profits. “I don’t see any benefit in increasing the cost of living to people,” said Hillier. Over the last seven years, he said he is most proud of “my personal advocacy on the issues they (constituents) face. That is very rewarding for me.” He also pointed out that he is one of the few MPPs around to have their home phone number still listed in the phone book. One of the latest polls, for the Toronto Star, places the PCs neck-and-neck, at 36 per cent, with the Liberals, with the NDP at 20 per cent and the Greens at seven, but he refused to be drawn on how he thought the numbers would play out. “Polls and figures and statistics are a mug’s game,” he said. “The polls have been up and down and all around. Where will it be on June 12? I have no idea.” While Hudak has ruled out any coalition should Ontarians vote in another minority government, NDP leader Andrea Horwath has not. “Those things are beyond any one person’s control,” said Hillier, adding that the Liberals and NDP, in both the house and at the committee level, have voted together 97 per cent of the time in the last session. “We have had a de facto coalition for the last three years,” something he charged was dishonest to

the people of Ontario, and pointed to the “accord” government between David Peterson’s Liberals and Bob Rae’s NDP from 1985 to 1987, which was made public at the outset. “It is a moot point,” he said of any potential coalition talk. “I don’t know what will happen and to speculate what will happen…would be foolish.” At a number of debates held around the riding, including two last week in Carleton Place and Smiths Falls, Hillier was challenged on his party’s pledges to both cut 100,000 bureaucratic jobs, and also create one million jobs. “We said 100,000 positions would be gone, not 100,000 jobs,” said Hillier. “The bulk of those would be through attrition,” working at a rate of about five per cent of the 1.2 million strong civil service, or roughly 50,000 people per year. “That number will be achieved through attrition. We will do it over four years,” and through changes at Hydro One, Ontario Power Generation, and other bureaucracies. The Liberals and NDP have been challenging the math on the one million jobs pledge, but he noted that construction jobs, for example, which often are for finite periods, are measured out in “person years.” “When you indicate a job, there is no job that lasts forever,” said Hillier. “Most economists do end up quantifying it.” He also shot back that the 300,000 jobs promised by the Liberals with the creation of the Harmonized Sales Tax had yet to materialize, the same as the promised jobs flowing from the Green Energy Act.

Survivor reception, victory lap at Relay For Life an opportunity to celebrate being alive Cancer survivors invited to take part in both events in Smiths Falls June 13 Editor’s note: Leading up to the June 13 Relay for Life in Smiths Falls, we will be highlighting the stories of some of the team members, activities and events scheduled to take place in a series of articles. Community – Susan Niblock attended the Relay For Life (RFL) the first year it was held in the region in 2000 and was so impressed by what she saw that she became involved in the event for the next 10 years either as a member of a team or captaining her own team. In 2012, despite undergoing chemotherapy treatments in the midst of her own cancer fight, the Smiths Falls area resident still managed to take part in the Survivor Reception and Survivor Victory Lap. Last year, due to her reconstructive surgery, she was unable to participate in the RFL in Smiths Falls but she plans to be at this year’s event on June 13 at the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute track. “I am very pleased to take part in the Survivor Reception and Survivor Victory Lap,” says the breast cancer survivor. “Not everyone is able to. I am so thrilled I am a survivor. I am so glad I am able to do this for myself. I think it is honouring to those who helped me. I really want to celebrate being alive and well. I made it.” The Survivor Reception will start at 5:30 p.m. on June 13 and will continue until the opening ceremonies at 7 p.m. There will be appetizers and refreshments available during this time, as well

WMD Photography will be offering free portraits for the survivors who participate in the evening. “It is our hope that we can give them something beautiful that will lift their spirits a little and thank them for being a part of the Relay,” says Bill Davidson of WMD. A cancer survivor is defined as a person with cancer of any type who is living with, through, or beyond cancer. By this definition, survivorship begins at diagnosis. In 2013, 47 survivors attended the RFL in Smiths Falls. Survivors interested in taking part in the Survivor Reception and Survivor Victory Lap at this year’s event are encouraged to register in advance by contacting Melissa Hillier who is coordinating the survivor activities for the Relay. She can be reached by email at melissa_hillier@hotmail.com or by phone at 613-850-1664. “We are encouraging survivors to come out and take part in the reception and victory lap,” says Hillier. “Please join us as we celebrate, remember and fight back against cancer.” To learn more about RFL in Smiths Falls can contact the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Community Office of the CCS at 613-267-1058 (toll-free 1-800-3672913) or email lanarklg@ontario.ca.

Candidates paint stark differences on key election issues crat budget,â&#x20AC;? said Parkhill.

By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; From balancing the books to bees, from a new hospital to old battles, last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-candidates debate in Carleton Place covered a lot of ground, in a riding that also covers a lot of ground. The Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce sponsored the all-candidates debate at the town hall on May 29, which brought in incumbent MPP Randy Hillier of the Progressive Conservatives, Bill MacDonald of the Liberals, David Parkhill of the New Democratic Party, and Cam Mather of the Green Party. Balanced budgets The first question of the evening came in written form from a member of the chamber, read into the record by moderator, Donna MacDonald, about the provincial debt. According to the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, the provincial debt stands at more than $271,000,000, as of Monday afternoon, with each person in the province owing about $19,950, and the questioner wondered what the candidateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective was on balance budget legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only am I in favour of it (the legislation), I put forward a motion (in favour) of it,â&#x20AC;? Hillier said. Under his motion, the government would have to include

Above, any tax measures in their party platforms, or put tax measures to a referendum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will continue to advocate for that tax expenditure limitation bill,â&#x20AC;? Hillier added. MacDonald noted that the May 1 Liberal budget, presented by Finance Minister Charles Sousa, would have seen a balanced provincial budget by 2016-17. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That plan that was laid out

is fully costed,â&#x20AC;? said MacDonald. There was also a 10-year infrastructure plan that, he said, speaking as a former mayor, help municipalities better plan out their budgets. The Green Party would also support legislation to balance budgets, but the answer was an emphatic, â&#x20AC;&#x153;No,â&#x20AC;? from Parkhill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important that government has the flexibility to get

through hard times,â&#x20AC;? said Parkhill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get through the Great Depression by sitting on our hands and balancing the books.â&#x20AC;? He added that New Democrats were good at handling money, pointing to NDP governments on the Prairie provinces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are looking for a balanced budget, it is a New Demo-

Corporate tax cuts Chris Cormier, region four vice president of the Ontario Public Sector Employees Union (OPSEU), inquired about corporate tax cuts from the panel of politicians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Democrats do not support additional corporate tax cuts,â&#x20AC;? said Parkhill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (corporations) have been getting away with murder.â&#x20AC;? The Green Party agreed with this assertion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Green Party would not support any further corporate tax cuts,â&#x20AC;? said Mather, but it would offer more help for small business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax system is one of the most competitive in North America,â&#x20AC;? said MacDonald. Hillier however, set himself apart with his assertion that â&#x20AC;&#x153;lowering the corporate tax rate (is something) I was in favour of,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to lower the tax rate for everybody.â&#x20AC;? Daycare The introduction of all-day kindergarten was heralded by former Premier Dalton McGuinty as one of his signature achievements, but the move has had unintended consequences along the way. According to questioner Sandy MacGregor, licensed child care programs have suffered,

with layoffs in some programs as the more profitable older children get scooped up by kindergarten, leaving less-profitable younger children and babies to be cared for. She charged that Lanark County now has a waiting list of more than 100 families on the waiting list for subsidies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we have seen is the unintended consequences of the full-day kindergarten (program),â&#x20AC;? said Hillier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that the only way to address that is to change the ratios and criteria,â&#x20AC;? for the number of teachers and early childhood educators required for each class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our municipalities are tapped out. There is not enough money there.â&#x20AC;? MacDonald defended the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Liberal Party was the one that brought in all-day kindergarten and it has proven to be popular,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(But) I know that some daycare centres have suffered.â&#x20AC;? But even at that, he stated that parents are saving, on average, $6,500 a year because of the new program, and that his party has also raised the child benefit allowance. Mather noted that his party supports not-for-profit, universal daycare, and it would encourage workplace daycares, while Parkhill pointed to his autistic See DEBATE page 6

children, and what he alleged were failures in the system that let them and others like them, down. “They (the Liberals) were aware of the need for children’s services,” he said. “I have seen (autism service) waiting lists grow.” Pointing to MacDonald, Parkhill said that “he can talk about all the money he is throwing at it…it ain’t getting to the kids that need it.” As for daycare as a whole, “it needs to be affordable, it needs to be licensed,” Parkhill said, holding up the Quebec model as an example. New hospital for CP One of the recurring themes from the last election is Carleton Place’s desire for a new hospital, to replace the aging Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital. Parkhill said that the issue has “very much (fallen) on deaf ears,” and he laid the blame at Hillier’s feet. “We haven’t seen any movement at all (on the issue),” said Parkhill. “It is absolutely criminal that nothing has happened on this.” Mather said that his party was very focused on preventative medicine, and looking at ways of keeping people at home for longer. “I will try to find the money to help you get your health care,” said Mather. “I don’t know why you don’t have one yet. I will do everything I can to get you one.” However, he added that the model currently being used, with everrising costs, was not sustainable. With health care spending pegged at $18 billion in 2002, it has risen to $50 billion in 2014. “We have increased health care spending by seven-and-a-half per cent per year since 2003,” Mather said. MacDonald pointed out that he arranged meetings between a delegation from the hospital and Health and Long-Term Care Minister Deb Matthews at the Trillium Dinner in

Ottawa, and that Premier Kathleen Wynne met with another similar delegation at the Civitan Club hall in Perth last summer to discuss the matter. “I am not in a position to go out and advocate as an elected official,” said MacDonald, but he did so as a private citizen. “Our elected official has not advocated for the new hospital.” Hillier disagreed vehemently on this, pointing out that he has contacted Matthews, Alex Munter, the former chief executive officer of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), as well as making statements at Queen’s Park, and delivering petitions. “(For) 10 years, we have been advocating for this hospital,” said Hillier. “The LHIN approved this. They were set up to make decisions. There is direct political interference preventing Carleton Place from getting a new hospital.” Public health care Herve Cavanagh, president of OPSEU local 466, inquired about continued public funding of the health care system. “Publicly funded health care, yeah, absolutely,” said Hillier, before adding that “we are advocating more choice for people,” which could include private options. “Instead of it just being allocated by government bureaucrats…we are proposing that that (health care) be opened up, that people contract out that care,” Hillier said. “I support publicly-funded health care,” said MacDonald. He pointed out that the Liberals have increased funding to community care access centres and for home care. He added that hospital funding is also up by 50 per cent since 2003, that hospital wait times have been reduced, with 23 new hospitals built – compared to the 18 hospitals closed by the Harris government in the 1990s, and thousands of nurses given pink slips. “The Green Party supports

publicly-funded health care,” said Mather, but added that “we would advocate for more public-private partnerships.” Parkhill works in the health care sector himself, but charged that “we are seeing a non-commitment to community-based access to services,” from the Liberals. Hydro One irate landowner waved two hydro bills in front the panel – one from Quebec, one from Ontario, both from properties he owned. The Ontario bill was for $583 for one month. The Quebec bill? Seventy-five dollars for two months. “Where do you begin on the hydro file? It’s a catastrophe,” said Hillier, who said that he brought his own energy bill to the energy minister – and he wasn’t believed at first. “They (hydro bills) are driving people out of Ontario,” he said. “We can buy hydro from Quebec and Manitoba at much lower rates when we need it.” MacDonald pointed out that “the reason that energy is cheaper in Manitoba and Quebec is because they have cheaper water rates. (But) I agree with you that rates are too high. That is because of the delivery charge.” He urged that the delivery charge be taken off of bills, and that hydro infrastructure payments be made out of the government’s “general coffers.” Mather agreed that “it is an unfortunate situation. Electricity is hard to make,” which is why he lives off of the grid in Tamworth. He also urged Ontario to go nuclear-energy free, since it gets a lot of its energy from nuclear, while Quebec appears set to phase out its only reactor, but added that he agrees with buying cheaper Manitoba and Quebec hydro. “Profiteers are just gutting our hydro system,” said Parkhill. “We need to take Hydro One as our own entity and make it work for us. It won’t be easy, it won’t be cheap, it won’t be quick.”

Education When it comes to education, “these issues are near and dear to me,” said Parkhill. “We have seen our students pushed aside, pushed aside, pushed aside. We have seen 10 years of neglect under Dalton McGuinty. He painted himself as the education premier. (But) Dalton McGuinty has doen more harm to education than John Snobelen,” Mike Harris’ education minister from 1995 to 1997. “We know what it means when we see these cuts to education coming in,” said Parkhill. “These kids that will flourish with a bit of extra help will fall behind (without it),” he added. Mather brought up a Green campaign plank that his party intends to merge the Catholic and public school systems, to create one public school system, with English and French streams. “Most provinces in the country have eliminated faithbased school boards,” he said. Hillier chided the Liberals for implementing Bill 115, which forced labour contracts on some school boards. Because of that, “we ended up with a whole bunch of work-to-rules,” and one-day, rotating strikes across the province – even though the Tories voted for the same bill with the Liberals. MacDonald however defended the Liberal record on education, saying that the sector has seen a 53 per cent increase in funding since they took office in 2003. He claimed that there were higher test scores, more teachers on staff, and full-day kindergarten. “The only party that supports education and will continue to support education (is the Liberals,)” said MacDonald. Hillier however noted that while student enrollment has gone down by 250,000 students over the last 10 years, costs are rising and payroll has gone up too. Hillier also contended that grades were actually going down and that “our education

plan. If the plan is brought in, however, “you might as well kiss another 300,000 jobs goodbye.” MacDonald, however, said, “I absolutely support the Ontario Pension Plan. There are too many people who, when they hit retirement age, they cannot pay their own way. I think this should have happened a long time ago.” Mather admitted that since “it is a new policy, we have not had a chance to talk about it in our platform…But it does talk to the future.” Parkhill noted that he also does not favour an OPP, but would rather “like to believe that through negotiations and discussion, that we could improve the CPP. We would be far better off if we beef up the CPP,” he said, rather than creating another level of bureaucracy.

system has a heavy administrative burden. We are too bureaucratic in our education system. We need a breath of fresh air.” Ontario pension plan Premier Wynne has made a proposed pension plan, to compliment the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) in much the same way that Quebec’s system does, a cornerstone of her party’s re-election effort. But Hillier was having none of it. “I am opposed to the Ontario Pension Plan (OPP) as presented,” said Hillier. “It is a new payroll tax. There is not only the contribution of the employee, there is also the contribution of the employer,” adding a new cost to them. He advocated instead for a program like Australia has, where a mandatory two per cent of a worker’s pay is put into a registered retirement savings

REGIONAL NEWS

Lanark County council declares June 1 to 7 as National Access Awareness Week News – “The purpose of National Access Awareness Week is to raise understanding about the issues that affect people in our community who have disabilities,” said Warden Richard Kidd (Beckwith reeve). “About 1.85 million people in Ontario have some form of disability, especially as they get older, and we need to continue to find ways to provide equal access and opportunities for full participation in all aspects of Canadian life.” National Access Awareness

Week was first established in 1988 after Rick Hansen’s “Man in Motion” Tour, which promoted better community access for people with disabilities. The week celebrates achievements made by and for people with disabilities, and is a chance to promote access for people with all disabilities who encounter barriers preventing them from full participation in daily activities. “Right now one in seven people in Ontario has a disability, and that number is expected to be one

in five by 2036 as the population ages,” said Coun. Ed Sonnenburg (Carleton Place deputy mayor), chair of the county’s accessibility awareness sub-committee. “They face obstacles that prevent them from working, travelling and having full enjoyment in their communities. The county’s accessibility goal is to eliminate barriers to facilities, services and workplaces.” The sub-committee advises county council on how to make the corporation more accessible

for people with disabilities and aims to remove any existing barriers over time and to prevent new ones from being created. It was developed as part of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act and its key role is to advise council regarding its annual accessibility plan. “This can include reviewing site plans for new and existing municipal buildings, and checking bylaws, purchases, significant renovations, leased facilities, municipal capital facilities and goods and services provided by

the municipalities,” Sonnenburg explained. “We liaise with local municipalities and other accessibility advisory committees and we monitor federal and provincial directives and regulations.” There are many kinds of barriers, such as doors that are too heavy for a person in a wheelchair to open, signs and documents that are difficult to read for a person with a visual disability or a telephone that a person with a hearing loss cannot use. “We are committed to becoming an inclusive county in which

all persons with disabilities can exercise their civil, political, social and cultural rights on an equal basis with other persons,” Kidd said. “We want to ensure that everyone has the right to live in conditions of dignity, respect and peace.” The accessibility advisory sub-committee meets on average four times a year and its decisions are recommended to the county’s corporate services committee and then to council.

News – To commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day on June 6, The War Amps YouTube channel will feature iconic footage of Canadian troops storming Juno Beach in Normandy in 1944. These famous scenes were the first motion pictures the world would see of the D-Day invasion. The cameramen who scooped the international press were soldiers from the Canadian Army Film Unit. The War Amps is releasing a newsreel every week on its YouTube channel at YouTube. com/warampsofcanada. Left, army cameramen assigned to capture the first wave of the D-Day invasion. Submitted photo

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Why does Hillier’s Hitachi boondoggle hurt LFLA farmers? DEAR EDITOR: Our local MPP, Randy Hillier, complains about the Samsung boondoggle when he criticizes the green energy policies of the Liberal government. He also says that farmers should not be getting revenue from solar panels at the expense of hydro ratepayers. His solution is to have our electricity produced by “cheap” nuclear. This means that if Mr. Hillier gets his way, billions of dollars will be paid to companies like Hitachi, Toshiba, or SNC Lavalin (which is being investigated in Quebec for bribery and corrupt practices) to refurbish or build new nuclear reactors. Also, Mr. Hillier has implied that Ontario could import electricity from Quebec. Mr. Hillier thinks that it’s OK to pay out billions of dollars to big foreign companies and other provinces but not thousands to our own farmers to allow them to stay on their land and produce food for us.

Since the price of nuclear is going up and the price solar energy dropping dramatically, it will actually be cheaper to get our energy from green renewable sources such as solar, wind, and biogas produced locally by our farmers than from nuclear reactors. All of our green energy comes from public private partnerships where companies or farmers have to invest their own money and get a fixed rate for the energy they produce as opposed to nuclear power where the province has been on the hook for cost over-runs. We see this every day on our hydro bills when we have to pay off the “stranded” debt produced by nuclear power. Mr. Hillier should stand up for his constituents and support local farmers by paying them instead of Hitachi for our electricity. Wolfe Erlichman Godfrey

COMMENTARY

We must remember Editorial – This year marks a number of significant military anniversaries for our country, including tomorrow (June 6), which serves as the 70th anniversary of D-Day during the Second World War. D-Day, also known as the Normandy landings which were part of Operation Overload during the war, saw more than 150,000 soldiers from Canada, the United States, Belgium, France and the United Kingdom storm an 80-kilometre stretch of the coast of Normandy. Twelve-thousand men lost their lives that day, but helped to secure a significant Allied victory in the war. In this day and age, it’s sometimes easy to forget the sheer scale of the two World Wars that shaped so much of our past, simply perhaps because we didn’t experience them. That’s no reason to be apathetic. We should be sinking up as much of our history as we can and there’s no lack of footage out there to view. A perfect example is our editorial photo this week, which captures army cameraman assigned to capture the first wave of the D-Day invasion on film. In honour of D-Day, the War Amps’ YouTube channel will feature footage of Canadian troops storming Juno Beach and each week a different portion of footage is being released. How incredible it is that we have these newsreels. It’s all part of a project that’s been unfolding over the past two years to make Canadian Army newsreels available to the public. Maybe it isn’t pretty, but we should all take a more active role in learning about our history. On June 6, remember to take a moment to remember those who sacrificed their lives so we could all enjoy our freedom.

Emerson insists on proper burial for all animals Lifestyle – Emerson was having no part of it! Ronny and Terry had come from Montreal for their usual long summer holidays, and Ronny, just as aggressive as Emerson, insisted he was quite capable of playing a leading role in burying the dead bird. Emerson was high on burying anything that had died on the farm, and having what he called a proper funeral. He drew the line on the long list of farm animals that ended up in our smoke house and on the old pine table at mealtime. Thank goodness, or we would be having a funeral service every few days! What he called a proper send-off was saved for birds, squirrels, or anything else that roamed the large acreage that was our farm at Northcote and which had passed on for one reason or another. He was known to drag a dead groundhog a half mile to give it a proper service. Now, the service usually included us five children standing, (although my sister Audrey, the oldest was get-

ting less and less enamoured with the whole idea) around in solemn wonder as Emerson said a few words, put the deceased in a shallow hole, covered it up, stuck a twig in the mound, and then we were supposed to stand and meditate for at least a full three minutes, which Emerson measured off by counting backwards. That Saturday the dead bird was discovered in the barnyard, and Emerson didn’t take long to announce that we should all gather behind the silo as soon as we finished our breakfast. Ronny said he would be glad to help with the service. Emerson said that wouldn’t be necessary, he had the service down pat. Knowing Ronny, he had other plans. Well, Mother wasn’t letting any of us away from the house until the kitchen had been redded up, and that included Emerson pitching in. We all had our special chores, and nothing interfered with Mother’s routine, dead bird, or no dead bird. Ronny was to take the table scraps out to the back stoop for our old ColVice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@metroland.com 613-283-3182, ext. 104

As Ronny was heading out the door, Emerson hollered, “We’ll meet at the silo in five minutes.” Finally the red and white oilcloth covered table was wiped clean, the dishes washed, dried and put away, and the floor swept. We all headed for the back door. Audrey couldn’t be coaxed out of the kitchen. “Nonsense...just plain nonsense,” she could be heard muttering.

as Mother was concerned. As long as our chores were done to her liking, she was happy! Emerson always wore his cap at these ceremonies. I thought that strange since you wouldn’t dare wear a cap in church, and this was supposed to be as close to a church service as you could get without actually going to church. He also took the battered hymn book with him. He would have loved to take the bible which sat in the parlour on the twig table, but Mother drew the line on that! No bible left the house to bury a dead bird. Emerson led us solemnly out of the house, down the back steps and across the front yard towards the silo behind the barn. Little Terry had no idea where he was going, but he sensed excitement in the air, and holding my hand tightly, he skipped along as if we were going to a party. Ronny was already at the site. And it didn’t take a university graduate to figure out what he had done.

at one end of it, and there stood Ronny standing in solemn wonder with his hands folded in steeple position and his eyes closed. Ronny had buried the bird. Well, Emerson lost all sense of piety, lunged at Ronny, dropped the hymn book, and was about to tear into him when Everett and Earl got a good hold of him and held him back. Ronny had the good sense to head for the house where he knew Mother would never let Emerson lay a hand on him. The rest of us stood around the little mound. I have no idea when he did it, but Ronny had taken a scrap of paper, woven it through the twig at the head of the makeshift grave, and printed in black red crayon, “Goodbye Bird”.

June 6, 1944: Recalling Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role 70 years later Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It was a wet and wind-swept spring afternoon in Normandy, France. And Wally Mace was excited! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look boys, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put the steeple back on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;er,â&#x20AC;? Wally exclaimed. He was pointing a finger as he quickly moved back and forth along the centre aisle of the bus. Wally was bent at an odd angle as he tried to see out of the moving coach. What he had spotted was a church in one of the beachside communities behind Juno Beach, a place which should be well-known to every Canadian.

Exactly 70 years ago tomorrow, on June 6, 1944, two brigades from the 3rd Canadian Division waded ashore and fought their way inland as part of one of modern historyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boldest and most successful military invasions. Wally Mace, a 17-year-old from Carleton Place, was one of those soldiers. The event itself is best known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;D-Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the nickname for Operation Overlord, the massive Second World War Allied assault on the French coast that helped bring an end to the Na-

tory of World War II and its aftermath. Seven decades later it is likely this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s observances will be the last major event related to D-Day which will be attended by actual veterans of the invasion. The ranks of the Canadian, British and American troops who spearheaded Operation Overlord are rapidly dwindling. In 10 years, on the 80th anniversary, it seems unlikely many â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if any â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will still be alive. a Wally Mace didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live to see the 70th anniversary. He died in 2009 in his 85th year. The incident I describe at the beginning of this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column occurred in May 1995, shortly after Wally and more than 20 other Second World War veterans from Carleton Place, Lanark County and Ottawa attended another very special event in The Netherlands. The occasion was the 50th anniversary of the Liberation of Holland and the 50th anniversary of the end of Second World War in Europe. Wally and the other area veterans marched proudly in the national liberation parade in the city of Apeldoorn, in southeastern Holland. All along the route the elderly veterans were cheered by a crowd estimated at half a million (Apeldoorn has 157,000 permanent residents). Canadian troops, including

Wally, played a major role in freeing tiny Holland from five years of German occupation and Nazi tyranny. Throughout the parade the estimated 8,000 veterans involved were handed bouquets of flowers, hugged and kissed by women and were slapped on the back or shook hands with the male parade watchers. Unforgettable scene I saw it firsthand and it is a truly incredible scene that is forever burned into my memory. As the then publisher of the Carleton Place Canadian and Almonte Gazette newspapers I, along with my wife Kathleen, was invited to accompany the local contingent to the landmark anniversary observances in Holland. The late Alan R. Barker, founder of the Carleton Place funeral home of the same name, was the organizer. An Almonte native, Alan was part of the ill-fated Canadian invasion of the heavily defended German-occupied port of Dieppe in August 1942. Less than two years later he was part of the successful assault against Adolf Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much vaunted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Atlantic Wallâ&#x20AC;? on D-Day. The invasion that hastened the end of the Second World War in Europe. Like Wally, Alan fought his

way through France, Belgium and Holland as part of the ultimately successful war in the west. In May 1995 he was accompanied to Europe by his wife Melba, the first female mayor of Carleton Place. Sadly both have since passed away. I wish to pay tribute to both of them this week. They were very special people. The 50th anniversary trip Alan organized changed my life. I have been writing about veterans ever since and I will continue to do so as long as I am able. They are truly amazing people who deserve more recognition than they have received in my opinion. During that trip, following five days in The Netherlands, our group travelled to France. We spent two days in and around the city of Caen, during which we walked the Normandy invasion beaches. We also visited several war cemeteries including BĂŠny-surMer Canadian War Cemetery where just over 2,000 of our countrymen are interred. Most were killed during the early stages of the Battle of Normandy, including on D-Day itself. To say the least it was a very moving experience! For Wally Mace the 1995 odyssey marked his first time

back on Juno Beach since he waded ashore on D-Day and survived to tell the tale. More than 300 Canadians weren’t so fortunate. They were killed in action on the first day of the attack. To finish the story I started, the church Wally was referring to became a grim focal point for Canadian soldiers in the hours following the invasion. German snipers occupied the steeple, picking off anyone and everyone they set their sights on. The end of that chapter came quickly said Wally, a member of the 30th Artillery Battery. “We (Canadians) put a couple of rounds into ‘er (steeple) and down she came,” Wally outlined. “No more snipers,” he added, with satisfaction evident in his voice. Not long after our return from Europe Wally’s wife Florence (she passed away in 2012) told my wife an interesting sidebar story. “That trip was so good for Wally,” Flo told Kathy. “He can finally sleep. He’s had nightmares ever since (the war) and now they’re gone.” The trip to Normandy had finally given him some closure. I mentioned that Wally was 17 in 1944. The standard for a soldier at the time was 18. He told me he tried to join the war effort when he was 16 but was refused. A year later recruiters evidently turned a blind eye. The underage Wally got his wish and joined the army. Canada’s contribution Tomorrow, among the quickly

dwindling ranks of D-Day veterans will be a number of Canadians. I’m sure many of them faced the same dangers Wally and his mates did during the war. I hope the experience of being at Juno Beach again will be as good for them today as it was for my friend 19 years ago. I will now offer some facts about D-Day that demonstrate just how important the Normandy invasion and its aftermath were. I also want to underline the important role Canadians played in this epic battle. For those who were living in German-occupied countries at the time, the invasion couldn’t come soon enough. Adolf Hitler’s “1000 Year Reich” lasted a mere 12. But the death, destruction and savagery unleashed during such a relatively short period in world history has few, if any, parallels. Tomorrow’s observances will focus on just one day. The day German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel predicted would be “The Longest Day.” For both the Germans and the Allies! Rommel, the man charged with repelling the long expected invasion, knew the first 24 hours would be crucial. If his troops were able to hurl the Allied forces back into the Atlantic, the course of the war might have been very different. It turns out Rommel was both right and wrong. He bravely predicted the German defenders would win the day. Fortunately he was wrong. But he was certainly right about the first day being the most critical. It is the Allies’ success on that momentous day that will be remembered Tuesday.

D-Day is marked (the letter ‘D’ is actually just the first letter of Day – or in this case THE day) every June 6. As mentioned there are fewer of the actual participants left to mark the anniversary with each passing year. More than 14,000 Canadian troops were involved in the initial Juno Beach assault. There were also two British and two American invasion beaches on the Normandy front. A little known fact is that during the first hour of the attack the Canadians suffered 50 per cent casualties. That is comparable to American losses on Omaha Beach which is usually the first area mentioned when it comes to D-Day casualties. Another seldom acknowledged fact about D-Day is that it was Canadian soldiers who advanced farther inland, on that first day, than any other attacking force. As they did throughout the war in Europe the Canadians were handed a difficult task and they executed it to perfection. D-Day statistics show there were 946 Canadian casualties, of which 335 were killed. All Canadians should remember, respect and honour their sacrifice tomorrow. We owe them the freedom we enjoy today. Last week I read a newspaper death notice on Herb Pragnell from Almonte, another of the veterans from our 1995 excursion. I then looked at our photos taken at the time. Herb was the last surviving veteran from our group. God bless him – God bless all of them!

Hospice volunteers help ease the pain of loss for grieving families day season, which are addressed in the groups. “It could be changing what you normally do for Christmas and not being afraid to do that,” said Bowie. Support group members are encouraged to bring mementos of the deceased – like photos, objects, even music – to memorialize them at the group. A lot of hospitals have their own volunteer-led bereavement programs that complement the work done by Bowie’s group. There is a bereavement nurse at the Carleton Place and District Memo-

News – At least you get a chance to say goodbye. The pain of losing someone close to you may never really ever go away, but while you can take steps to manage that memory, and not let it overtake you, there are subtle differences in the dynamics between dealing with the fallout of a sudden death, versus one that was long-anticipated – though, by no means is the grief easier in either circumstance. “All losses are difficult in different ways,” said Rebecca Bowie, co-ordinator of the volunteer hospice visiting service, during an interview at her office at Community Home Support – Lanark County (CHSLC) in Perth. “They are so hard to compare. I wouldn’t say it is any easier if you know that someone is ill.” While a terminally-ill patient may be able to put his or her affairs in order, say their goodbyes and even make peace with estranged loved ones, the emotional burden is still difficult for those left behind. However, there is “a big difference when there is unfinished business,” when someone dies suddenly. Take, hypothetically, she says, a man, aged 60, who is looking forward to retirement, His children are raised, and he is anticipating graduations, marriages, and children for them, a sudden death can create a lot of regrets for what could have been for the widow and the rest of the family, in the envisioned golden years that included him. “That’s really difficult because it is the plans and dreams that are not complete,” said Bowie. “It’s all the plans that don’t get to happen.” No matter what type of grief one goes through during the mourning period after losing a loved one, “it’s always a shock,” said Bowie. Even if the patient has been ill for a decade, and has had three or four near misses, being rushed to the hospital in really rough shape, the fifth time, “after 10 years, you call the ambulance, and they don’t come home.” While the patient is in the somewhat uncomfortable position of having weeks, months, even years to contemplate their impending departure from this life, the family members and loved ones face the further obstacle of what comes afterwards. “Well, what do I do now?” is a common question asked by long-term caregivers when the loved one finally succumbs. “My life has been looking after this person for 10 years. You don’t know what somebody means to you until they die. Sometimes people really don’t know what the people mean to them and they are broadsided… it is a void they didn’t expect.” For the patient, as their journey progresses from diagnosis onwards, they

Their role changes.” Hospice visiting service Her more than 60 volunteers visit “people living with a life-limiting illness,” serving not only the patient, but also their family, often setting up weekly volunteer visits that go beyond simply finding out if the patient is taking their medication but, also “companionship and understanding… loss is a part of life. We are here and we have empathy for someone, because you can never really know what it is like for the person.” “I go out and visit them in their home and see what their needs are,” said Bowie. “We fill in the gaps with trained volunteers. I go in and visit them and see where they are.” During early-stage visits, she does not broach issues like DNRs, or do-notresuscitate orders, but, as the bond between volunteer and patient grows, the volunteers tend to become advocates on their patient’s behalf, continuing on their visits when the patient is transferred to hospital, hospice, or long-term care facility, from their home. “As the illness progresses, we may have more than one volunteer in there,” said Bowie. But the visits do not just help the patient. “It’s often respite care for the caregiver.” The volunteers go through a 36-hour palliative care training course, facilitated by an educator from the South East Local Health Integration Network. Many volunteers go on to complete the second level of the training. One such volunteer with CHSLC is Perth area resident Jennifer Jilks, whose

own experiences caring for her mother and father as they endured terminal illnesses, led her to write a novel, Living and Dying with Dignity in 2008. She said she helps prepare families for the grieving process in any way she can. “I tell family members to write the eulogy and obituary before their loved one passes away. It helps you reflect back on what they did that was positive,” she stated. Jilks often aids in the process by capturing a client’s thoughts and wishes on paper during her visits. “Sometimes they (client) have a message for family and I will write that down,” she said. At times, what a loved one facing end-of-life ponders can be surprising for the family. “One of my clients, the son read out part of what I had transcribed at the their funeral and spoke about their happiest moment. It was when they turned 16 and were able to quit school. Not when their kids being born or getting married, but quitting school,” Jilks remarked. “Another lady told me about how she wanted her funeral to be. She wanted it to be nothing like her husband’s. He was a jazz musician and for his funeral, musicians walked the streets and played in his honour,” she added. “…I pass all of this information on to families. Life and death is all part of the same continuum.” The volunteer hospice visiting service has two-month bereavement support groups in the county: • Carleton Place, last Wednesday of each month, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., at the Waterside Retirement Residence, 105 McNeely Ave. • Perth, second Wednesday of each month, 1 to 3 p.m., at Lanark Lodge, 115 Christie Lake Rd. To register, please call 613-2676400, or email rebeccab@chslc.ca, but “anyone can come the groups. It is nice if I can know ahead of time. No one is forced to speak. (But) usually people do talk.” There are often timely themes tied to the seasons, like the ongoing holiTHE EMC - 20 - Thursday, June 5, 2014

rial Hospital, and the new Hub Hospice Palliative Care centre, 70 Clyde St., in Almonte. “There used to be more palliative care in the hospitals and we are trying to get that back,” said Bowie. While many patients want to remain in their home for as long as possible, with long-term care facility waiting lists what they are, they may end up having to stay at home for longer than is medically advised, because there simply is not enough room.

Bereavement services more counselling than therapy By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community – “If society wasn’t so grief phobic, I’d be out of a job,” says Barbara Carroll, hospice volunteer and bereavement support/group facilitator. That statement pretty much sums up the social need and the role that Carroll and others like her play in helping people prepare for the end of life and renewal. She is a grief counsellor who helps people through their final days and supports those they leave behind. “We’re not that good at dealing with people who are grieving because of death, separation, infertility, miscarriage or retirement,” she says. To that end Carroll volunteers as grief counsellor both one-on-one and as a group facilitator. “I like intense emotions and palliative care and grief work is where you get them,” she says. An immigrant from New Zealand, Carroll has had graduate training in mathematics and psychology. She worked as a university lecturer for 15 years and then as a fibre artist for another 15 years, now she’s on a third career as a grief counsellor, and that’s an important distinction she says. Her role is that of a counselor, not a therapist. It’s not an easy road and there are times when she wonders about the way that dying patients are treated in hospitals. “There was a patient I visited in the hospital and he was obviously dying – but the physiotherapist came in and said ‘come on you have to get up and walk to keep those muscles moving’, and I remember thinking, ‘why?’,” she says. That’s just an illustration of how we view death, less as a right of passage and more as a battlefield. Acceptance is not in our social vocabulary, but it is in Carroll’s. “I was called by a woman I had

been seeing, who said her husband was dying and I’d better come over if I wanted to see him. When I got there he was so obviously already on his way somewhere else I didn’t want to drag him back,” she recalls. That passive acceptance is a large part of what grief counselling is about, according to Carroll. “With grief there is nothing wrong with you, you’re just grieving but the message people get is ‘get over it. If you’re emotional stay home, or go to the washroom,’ “ she explains. Grief isn’t a disease or a problem that needs fixing; it’s a normal process, but it’s one that is best navigated with support. “I’m just there to listen, I’m just there validating the reality,” says Carroll. “There was one client I was visiting who had a nurse and personal support worker helping her care for her dying husband. At one point I turned to her and commented ‘my goodness, this is like grand central station.’ She looked at me and burst into tears – I had just validated her sense of lost privacy and space and it was a relief for her,” says Carroll. That is in an important aspect of what Carroll and other volunteers like her do – simple validation. “One reason I would go into home would be to give the primary caregiver a break,” says Carroll. By doing so she will spend time with the palliative patient, often supporting them as well. “I’ve had people say I hate not dying, I’ve turned my wife into a slave,” she says. Being there to hear those words is the therapy she provides. Each situation is different she says, which is part of what keeps her interested and motivated. Some people need more or less support. “I worked with a man who was undergoing treatment his wife didn’t See GRIEF page 21

Barbara Carroll is a hospice volunteer and bereavement/ support group facilitator. a lifetime of unresolved losses – I’m just there absorbing it, because they have to find their own way,” says Carroll. Different situations demand different strategies, and she might do some grounding techniques with someone who is grief stricken. “I might get people in despair to just breathe and pay attention to their physical symptoms, because there are often a lot of things going on – exhaustion, intense grief and loss. These are all emotions

agree with, so I was there to support them both,” says Carroll. By support she means, simply being there, being a sounding board, a listener, a companion. The biggest part is supporting the caregiver while they are performing that role and most importantly once their patient has left. “It’s a huge loss to the caregiver – they don’t know who they are anymore,” says Carroll. In older societies there would have been an extended family around to offer support directly or indirectly but today too many people find themselves alone. “Some people have no family support – no friends – they may really need the interaction but are just too needy. People like that may fall into despair, if they don’t have resources, they may just stay there. They may turn to drugs or alcohol anything to ease the pain – it becomes too big for them and they can’t deal with it,” explains Carroll. Often the people who will be left behind have been so busy caring for the patient they haven’t had time to prepare themselves. “Or you may have a client who is grieving the loss of a spouse but they may also have

that increase a person’s sense of vulnerability and so fear,” she says. A person who is grieving, explains Carroll, walks into a glass tunnel and her role is to walk along beside the tunnel. “The privilege of having total strangers tell you a tragic story they’ve experienced or their thoughts about dying, those are such privileged moments,” she says. While she experience a great deal of satisfaction from both one-on-one counselling and group counselling it isn’t something she could do fulltime not does she need to. Generally Carroll will spend two to three hours with a client and not every week. “I couldn’t see 20 or 25 clients a week, that would be too much,” she says. While this is work that gives her a great deal of satisfaction and even joy, she says it does take its toll. “There is a team of us (who) do this grief counselling and we get together once in a while and that helps,” she says. On the other hand the purity of the relationships she forms with grief stricken clients is one that she cherishes. “You see people at their most vulnerable and at their most magnificent and you don’t see that every day,” she says with the open simplicity that is her trademark.

Part Three of a Four-Part Series

Life after death: Many tools available to help grieve a loved one By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

News – The process of grieving a loss is arguably the most difficult aspect of life we face. Seeing a loved one at peace after facing a terminal illness can give comfort, but what about those left behind? Hospice doesn’t just support your loved one during their terminal illness, but can also provide much peace for family members afterwards. Beth Donovan Hospice (BDH), which has been serving the areas of North Grenville, Merrickville and South Ottawa for 22 years, has a “very robust” bereavement program, said executive director Dawn Rodger, which they are always enhancing. “We want people to know they’re not alone and what they’re feeling is completely normal,” Rodger said. “It’s a process, they are thrust into this new life they hadn’t anticipated without their loved one. It’s about how to relate your experience with others’ experiences. It’s normal, it takes time to have a healthy grieving process.” One of the biggest ways the organization is doing this is with the addition of counsellor Suzanne Duc, who holds a Master of Arts in counselling psychology. She became part of the team in July 2013. “Our professional counsellor on staff, Suzanne, provides oneon-one counselling for those anticipating death or who have lost a loved one,” Rodger said. In a report Duc gave at BDH’s annual general meeting earlier this year, she noted that grief and bereavement counselling is available in individual, couple and group formats, home visits, workshops, volunteer training in bereavement and support, as well as trauma and loss presentations. “Our services are available to

all those in our catchment area suffering from life-limiting illness, their caregivers (whether family, friends or members of their health care team), as well as anyone who has suffered human loss,” Duc explained. “We have a number of groups, including those specifically for loss of spouse, loss of child and loss of a loved one due to suicide,” Rodger said, adding that all counselling done is in accordance with the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists. Duc started off working one day a week (eight to 10 hours), but thanks to a LHIN grant in December 2013, allowed BDH to expand their counselling services (free of charge) to 20 hours per week. “Year-to-date numbers for 2014 reflect a substantial year over year increase with 198 individual sessions taking place representing a total of 31 clients served,” Duc stated in her report. However, there is on average, a three to four week waiting list for those seeking individual counselling appointments with BDH. Variety of workshops Everyone experiences grief in a different way therefore BDH has a variety of workshops to help, whether it’s an eight-week closed spousal bereavement group offered this past winter; surviving the holidays sessions co-facilitated by BDH Chaplain, Pastor Daniel Massey; or a Kemptville District Hospital presentation on compassion fatigue. “Our goal is to support members of the community with their grief and bereavement needs in a client-centred fashion,” Duc stated. “There is no limit to the number of sessions offered nor is there always a fixed session length. Clients take an active role in their own treatment and most attend therapy

In the future, Duc said the plan is to organize group programming to run them quarterly and focus on specific topics. “This vision is based on research evidence which suggests that planning groups based on similar types of loss is experienced by participants as more helpful to their overall grief recovery pro-

cess,” she noted. As BDH moves forward with its counselling program, Rodger said a partnership with Yorkville University will be a big part. Currently, the organization mentors a student going through training to become a counsellor. “Not only will supervision in this regard permit students of Yorkville’s counselling psychology program to complete the necessary requirements of their graduate degree program over a six-month period; it will also reduce and hopefully eliminate our current

wait list condition given the addition of counselling resources,” Duc explained. Expanding community outreach programming with more structured volunteer bereavement training is another goal of BDH. “In cases were professional-level counselling support is not required, we aim to provide peer support as the client(s) deems appropriate either through telephone outreach initiatives or home visits,” Duc said. “There is a 24-hour training period and great community partnerships through other local Hospices and Bereaved Families of Ontario to train our facilitators,” Rodger stressed. Community education and awareness is an important aspect of ensuring the word gets out about the support services that are available. Duc said there are talks to become a bigger presence in local schools to help with suicide awareness and prevention. “...Moreover, we hope to

build upon newly established relationships with local physicians and community service organizations to promote our counselling services and to provide much-needed grief and bereavement education to primary care providers,” she stated. Rodger, who also serves as the chair of the Champlain Regional Bereavement Task Group, said she is happy BDH has involvement on a regional level. She has played a role in developing a regional bereavement plan, which will be a tool for hospitals, Hospices and long-term care facilities. “A recommendation has been brought forward to the Champlain Hospice Palliative Care Board that it would be helpful for service providers to have a bereavement plan... in order to increase access to services in communities in which individuals live,” Rodger explained.“...It (plan) will help give organizations a means to start implementing bereavement care programs in their organizations.”

You did so many things for us, Your heart was so kind and true, And when we needed someone, We could always count on you. The special years will not return, When we are all together, But with the love in our hearts, You walk with us forever. Forever in our hearts, Love Mom and family

SAFETY TIPS Heating: If you have not used your fireplace or woodstove for a long time, have it checked by a professional technician before using it. Your chimney may be blocked or damaged, which could cause a fire or a build-up of carbon monoxide inside the home.

News – The following are questions posed by the Citizens’ Democracy Forum, a multi-party group of supporters of all provincial parties and the answers received from candidates in the provincial election for the ridings of Lanark-Frontenac- Lennox & Addington and Leeds-Grenville. 1• With our ‘first-past-the-post’ voting system producing ‘majority’ governments that receive considerably less than a clear majority of votes cast… and as a result, substantially fewer eligible voters actually choosing to vote... do you and your party agree that, because the views and interests of the majority of electors is not usually represented in our legislatures, this is a serious flaw in our democracy that needs to be addressed forthwith? LIBERAL LFLA: We want to restore the public’s trust in government. We would like to see more Ontarians engaged in the political process. Through our Open Government initiative we’ve already taken tangible steps to make Government more transparent, accountable, and engaging. We’ve opened-up government data, proposed an expanded mandate for the Ontario Ombudsman, and sought to improve disclosure of MPP expenses. Our Plan for Ontario builds on these achievements, committing, for example, to move on the recommendations of the Open Government Panel and to reintroduce our Accountability Act. With respect to electoral reform, unlike other parties, we acted. We

established a Democratic Renewal Secretariat and, in 2007 after a lengthy public consultation across the province, we gave the people of Ontario a choice with a referendum on electoral reform. The people of Ontario chose to stay with the ‘first-past-the-post’ system we currently have today. GREEN: Canada is one of the few parliamentary democracies in the world that still uses the first past the post system. This voting system does not result in governments that reflect the values and wishes of voters, nor does it foster the involvement of diverse voices in decision-making. It often leads to majority governments elected by a minority of voters. The Green Party of Ontario recognizes this as a flaw in our democracy. The Green Party of Ontario supports proportional representation for Ontario. Electoral reform will eliminate the need for strategic voting, reduce negative campaigning, and ensure every vote counts. NDP L&G: Yes, New Democrats believe that people shouldn’t feel their vote doesn’t count if they don’t vote for one of the major parties. New Democrats supported changing the system in the 2007 referendum but because of the rules set up by the Liberal government, weren’t allowed to openly campaign for it. We also believed it suffered from negative media coverage and a lack of information about the proposal and the Citizens’ Assembly that recommended it. PC L&G: The Ontario PC Party

conducted widespread consultations in developing our platform for the June 12 provincial election. While many issues were identified as important, changing Ontario’s current voting system was not a priority. However, I do believe there are changes to our voting system that must take place. Specifically, I’m referring to the accuracy of our list of electors maintained by Elections Ontario. The poor job Elections Ontario does in maintaining this vital information, which is the primary method for candidates – and Elections Ontario itself – to connect and engage with electors is something I raised at Queen’s Park following the 2011 provincial election. Here is a copy of my Member’s Statement, which received praise from members of all three parties: Ontario Hansard - 23-November2011 Mr. Steve Clark: Thank you, Speaker, and congratulations on your election as Speaker. I rise to speak today about an issue that concerns all of us here in this Legislature. I’m referring to the most fundamental aspect of our democratic system: the right of people to cast their ballot. I’m asking my fellow MPPs to join me in demanding that Elections Ontario clean up its disgraceful voters list. We were all disappointed with the historically low voter turnout on October 6, when fewer than half of Ontarians voted. I believe that one of the main

reasons is their frustration of being left off the voters’ list entirely or the incorrect information they were given about where to vote. I’m sure everyone in this Legislature heard horror stories from people at the doorstep during the campaign. I had people tell me they had lived at the same location for decades and dutifully voted in every election, only to discover they had suddenly vanished from the list. Others were shocked to find several names listed on a home they’d lived in for generations-except their own. Many were so offended by this omission, which they took as a personal insult, that they refused to vote in protest. I also recall a couple in Portland, in my own riding, who could literally throw a stone and hit the side of the polling station they’d voted at for years, yet their voters’ card sent them to a polling station 30 minutes away. They took the time to get it fixed, but I’m sure many others said, “Why bother?” I call on Elections Ontario to look into why the voters’ list is such a mess and fix it before more Ontarians become disenfranchised. Unfortunately, Elections Ontario has done nothing to improve the situation in the nearly three years since and I pledge that if successfully re-elected on June 12, I will continue to advocate on this issue.

Perth PSB considers ‘hub’ policing model By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

Torch Run Triumph Community – The 27th annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics ran through Lanark County last week, including in Perth and Carleton Place. Here, participants, including local OPP officers and Special Olympians, take to the streets from the police station on Highway 7 through the mall, down Wilson, Foster and Gore Street to Algonquin College. According to Const. Bill Dickson, torch run coordinator for the East Region, it is their biggest fundraiser for Special Olympians who strive to participate in sports in their areas. Locally, there are four athletes who compete in various Special Olympic sports, including Rob McLellan, Andrew Harris, Tyler Julian and Josh Lee.

She Said ‘Yes!’

Entertainment - The newest craze sweeping high schools across the continent is the “Prom Proposal,” and there were two at Perth and District Collegiate Institute on June 2. Below, Lindsay Bell said ‘yes’ to Cole Ryan, joined by his friends Alex Richmond and Eli Hansen, on the sports field.

Vandalism The recent return of spring-like weather has had an unfortunate, unintended consequence – a rise in vandalism and graffiti. The PSB heard that a lot of the problems arise shortly after last call at Perth’s bars, but that the problem tends to get less worse as the summer wears on. Responding to questions about recent graffiti attacks, and flower beds being knocked over, Needham replied that “we are engaging in more proactive patrols. It is a game of time too,” he said, with a crime such as flower bed tipping only taking four seconds at most. “It hasn’t changed since I was chair of the Business Improvement Area,” said Clement.

2014 FORD MUSTANG CONVERTIBLE

News – The Perth Police Services Board (PSB) is looking at incorporating the so-called “hub model” of policing in town. Following her return from the Ontario Association of Police Services Boards’ (OAPSB) annual convention in Toronto, Perth PSB chair Stephanie Gray said she was interested in “investigating the hub model here.” “It’s a way of getting all of the community justice partners talking to each other,” while respecting a client’s privacy, explained Insp. Derek Needham, the detachment commander for the Lanark County OPP. It is seen as a method of “early intervention,” and, as such, crime prevention. “The police play a role in being the initial catalyst to get the ball rolling,” said Needham. “It’s different than a community justice circle,” and instead seeks to get the client connected with the proper social services they need such as housing, or addiction’s services. “With the new (proposed) billing model and its emphasis on calls for service,” said Gray, such a model would help stop crime before it starts. The model has already been getting social service agencies out of their respective silos in North Bay starting in December of 2012 as part of a pilot project. “By the sounds of things, they worked on an absolute shoestring budget,” said Needham of the North Bay experience. But the project now has a full-time coordinator, thanks to some funding that came through. “It is being driven by the OPP, with the support of the OAPSB,” said Needham. “There will be more of a shift away from statistics to more problem areas… (identifying) problems and solutions.” The troubled Rexdale neighbourhood of northwest Toronto was singled out at the conference as another place where this model is being used. Rexdale has a problem with gun violence. “It’s different for every community,” said Gray, of the differences between Perth and Rexdale, but the same program can be effective in bringing people together to see what needs to be done. Board member John Clement noted that, for example, on a domestic disturbance call, a police officer may notice several problems at a home that might be creating the problem, and future problem. This might range from employment, to drug addictions, to children’s aid – all at the one address – which the officer simply cannot deal with all in one visit.

Jumpstart Day in Perth Sports - Jumpstart Day is a celebration of Jumpstart’s vision of giving all children the opportunity to enrich their lives through sports and physical activity. On May 31, Canadian Tire stores across the country, including Perth, held barbecues and other fun events to raise funds for youth in the community who do not have the opportunity to participate in organized sports. Above, Jerry Woodburn, left, purchases a hot dog from Ethan Hofstatter and 100 per cent of that sale and all sales went directly to Jumpstart.

He and some friends, â&#x20AC;&#x153;didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to surrender.â&#x20AC;? He told those thinking of surrendering, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not accepting this bombardment.â&#x20AC;? He and two friends began to walk to Belgium â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when a Pontiac sidled up beside them, driven by fellow refugee officers from the north. The car was driven by a staff sergeant and two Dutch Jewish officers, who knew what awaited them if they fell into Nazi hands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For them (the Jews) it was absolutely imperative to get out,â&#x20AC;? he said. The car had already picked up two of Hissinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fellow soldiers, so there was no room for them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but there was room on the running board. So, they drove on, â&#x20AC;&#x153;windows down, arms around the post, hanging on for dear life.â&#x20AC;? At a harbour town near The Hague, they met a British warship, the HMS Keith, which was there to pick up the Dutch royal family, and ferry them to safety â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though they turned out to be noshows, escaping through another route. They were welcomed on board, but had to wait for dark to leave. When they sailed out into the North Sea, a German plane flew overhead. It dropped a deadly cargo into the water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a magnet bomb. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It draws itself to the hull of the ship by magnet and explodes,â&#x20AC;? said Hissink. But the stiff-upper-lip Brits were nonchalant. The captain simply flipped a switch on a cable trailing behind the ship, which â&#x20AC;&#x153;neutralized the magnetic attraction.â&#x20AC;? They arrived in Dover, England and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we were, I think, the first troops from Holland that arrived. The Brits took us to a castle there.â&#x20AC;? In time, he was sent to the Dutch East R0012739519_0605

Indies for flight training with the Dutch Naval Air Service. He left Europe in August of 1940 via South Africa. When the tropical island of Sumatra came into view, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for the first time, we saw the Dutch flag flying again.â&#x20AC;? As luck would have it, they landed in the port of Medan, where his father had served as a shipping agent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people still knew his name,â&#x20AC;? said Hissink. When he went ashore in the capital city, Batavia, modern day Djakarta, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was told by one of the officers that my father was looking for me.â&#x20AC;? His parents had lived in the north of Belgium, and he and his brother made the short walk to go to school in Holland every school day for three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the Germans invaded (Belgium), remembering the First World War, they got into a car and drove south to France,â&#x20AC;? said Hissink, arriving in Cannes. They carried on to Spain, and then Portugal, before moving on to the United States. Though North America offered the safety of an ocean between them and the Nazis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;my grandfather said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want to live under a Dutch flag. Let us go to the Dutch East Indies.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? It would prove to be a fateful decision. The Japanese continued their advance across Asia, invading the nearby island of Java. During this time, â&#x20AC;&#x153;my father really wanted me out of the forces. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I can get you a job right away.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No. I have to put the bombing of Rotterdam right.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Hissink had met an English girl, Janet, during his U.K. stay, and he sent her a telegram which would change both of their lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sent her a telegram and, surprising-

ly, she said yes,â&#x20AC;? to his proposal of marriage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I left England, I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I will see you when I come back,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? thinking that would be within a year or so. Escape from Indonesia Janet arrived in Asia without much fanfare, walking into his apartment and declaring, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have arrived.â&#x20AC;? This was April of 1941, and they were married that August. As the Japanese closed in, landing on the island of Bali, the time came for the Dutch trainee flyers to be evacuated. The Dutch Navy told its members that their spouses and families would be flown out later, but Hissink had his doubts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(I) didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trust them completely,â&#x20AC;? said Hissink. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very low on the totem pole. You (his wife) may be one of the last to get out. Try to get out yourself.â&#x20AC;? She escorted him to the dock where he sailed away to Australia. As he saw his beloved wife standing on the dock, he thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I should have stowed her away.â&#x20AC;? His wife, however, had other plans. Once her husband was out of sight, she turned around, headed straight back to her hotel, picked up her bags, and headed for the railway station to catch a train to Batavia to see if she could escape on a boat. As luck would have it, she met an English friend on the train, who told her that she was getting off at a port on the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s south side, at Tjilatjap, to take a ship leaving the area. She decided to follow her friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead, and they got off the train at midnight. In the harbour, the boat was already under steam, ready to sail. A rope ladder was tossed over the side for her to climb up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had never been so frightened as I

was when I went up that rope ladder,â&#x20AC;? he recalled her saying later. Janetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ship got a head start and she ended up meeting him off of the ship on the pier in Australia. In time, the Dutch surrendered the East Indies in March of 1942, with the military women and children being evacuated a month earlier. Hissinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife was to be amongst those evacuated. The women and children were evacuated on Catalina flying boats, which had to refuel in the town of Broome, near the northern Australian port city of Darwin. As the boats were refueled, women and children still on board, Japanese fighter planes appeared on the horizon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They shot them up,â&#x20AC;? he said simply. Many of the women and children died on board. The fuel being funneled into the plane proved deadly, as it caught fire. One man he knew â&#x20AC;&#x153;jumped into the water and got two of his kids under his arms.â&#x20AC;? His wife, meanwhile, struggled in the water with their other child. Over his shoulder, he heard her voice call out in terror. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am sinking.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had a dilemma there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What do I do? Do I save my wife or not?â&#x20AC;? He made the decision to let his two children go, and swam back to rescue his wife and their other child, saving them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though the two other children perished. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of them swam through the flames,â&#x20AC;? he said of the other victims. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife would have been there.â&#x20AC;? As for the rest of his family, they were unable to outrun the Japanese. The Dutch colonials were put into internment

camps, where his grandfather died. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was carried off to the cemetery in an open push cart,â&#x20AC;? said Hissink. His brother too was a prisoner of war, and though his father survived the war, at the camp, â&#x20AC;&#x153;he got very bad tuberculosis and died three years after the war in a sanatorium in Switzerlandâ&#x20AC;ŚI also lost a cousin on a prisoner of war ship that was torpedoed.â&#x20AC;? For these reasons, he said, he has never been able to forgive the Japanese. Moving on In time, he moved again, and began flying out of an RAF base in Norfolk, England. During his flights over Europe, the B-25 Mitchells bombed aerodromes, harbours, railways, viaducts and whatever infrastructure they could find â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially road junctions in advance of D-Day in 1944. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wanted the road structures damaged as much as possible,â&#x20AC;? Hissink remembered. He did come back to Norfolk with holes in his aircraft on one occasion, but he only had one truly terrifying flight. While providing air cover, they were hit by anti-aircraft fire, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we had to bail out. We all got out, except one. He, unfortunately, went down with the aircraft.â&#x20AC;? Both engines had been hit and were on fire, and they were slowly going down â&#x20AC;&#x201C; over Nazi-occupied territory. Looking at the map, Hissink told his captain, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if we can hold on for 10 minutes, we will be over our own liberated areas. That is what we did and started jumping out.â&#x20AC;? As for the man they lost, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that is still our big regret, that we lost this one man.â&#x20AC;?

Annual General Meeting

Westport celebrates its heritage June 14 News - The eighth edition of the Westport Heritage Festival runs Saturday, June 14 in the picturesque Rideau Lakes village. Celebrating its small town charm and unique Rideau heritage, the festival brings together a lively mix of street vendors selling art, crafts, unique one-of-a-kind gifts and delicious home-made food, says organizer Nicki Thacker. “It’s a family friendly festival – a relaxed day in the village, where visitors can pet a goat, have their face painted and

take home a freshly made rhubarb strawberry pie.” Musical entertainment starts at noon and Bedford Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from George to Church Street. The event runs all day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. “It’s been said before, nobody’s a stranger very long in Westport,” says Thacker. “We invite family, friends and neighbours to join us for the day. We are proud to showcase the village.”

The Annual General Meeting of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital Corporation will be held at the Smiths Falls Site, Smiths Falls, ON (60 Cornelia Street West), in Classrooms 1 & 2, Main Floor, on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. “Lynda Hendriks” Lynda Hendriks, Chair Board of Directors

News – Lanark County Support Services opened their new digs last week with an open house and tours of the facility on Rideau Ferry Road, just south of Perth on Highway 1. Lesley Walker, supervisor, said it was an excellent day with a full house of guests dropping in to check out the new building. “It’s been very busy,” she said during the afternoon of Wednesday, May 28, after most of the guests had been through on a guided tour that includes new expanded kitchen facilities, a day room for activities like arts and crafts, music and academics, and a super sized washroom. There are also offices carved into the unique accessible space, along with a board room and large foyer – all furnished locally, as well. “We grew out of our space on Harvey Street,” said Walker. “We were lucky that this space became available and broke ground last fall.” The facility is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and caters to developmen-

tally challenged adults. Currently, there are 25 clients of LCSS, three new ones since the building opened just a few months ago. They teach job/life skills, cooking and arts and crafts, as well as music. “It’s been fantastic – we’re getting more people joining and it’s our hope to expand services we offer,” Walker said. One of those invaluable services offered to clients of LCSS is job placement. There are 18 job stations in Perth; 142 in all of Lanark County serving clients at five communities, including Carleton Place, Almonte and two in Smiths Falls, along with Perth. “We would like to see more opportunities for our clients when it comes to job placements,” said Walker. “We have them doing laundry, working in a bakery, or collecting cardboard and recyclable materials. It’s great that they are able to get involved in the community and feel they are part of it. It’s an all-inclusive atmosphere and makes them feel comfortable in a working environment.”

A stark election choice in LFLA

E

ditorial – The choice could not be more clear. The candidates made sure of it. At the all-candidates debate for Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington in Carleton Place last week, there were many things in abundance, from rhetoric to accusations to denials. The one thing in short supply was ambiguity. The four candidates – incumbent Progressive Conservative MPP Randy Hillier, Liberal David MacDonald, New Democrat David Parkhill and Green Cam Mather – all staked out their own political ground, sometimes overlapping – sometimes miles apart. While Hillier is the incumbent, he has sat on the opposition benches for the last seven years, so the heavy lifting fell to MacDonald, having to both defend the good, and distance himself from the bad, of the last decade of Liberal rule. On the one hand, he tried to take credit for good points like all-day kindergarten, while openly admitting that workers in the day care sector were unintended victims of the plan. But then, he tried to distance himself from scandals, mentioning more than once that he was not part of the government at the time, essentially, trying to have it both ways. Hillier was not immune from this either. He seemed to revel in making hay of the Liberals’ misfortunes, much of it of their own making. But it is interesting that Hillier chastised the Liberals for passing Bill 115, which imposed contracts on some school boards – but failed to mention that his own party voted with the Liberals to get it passed. Deficit reduction offered a stark look at the party platforms for taming the province’s runaway finances. Hillier talked up his proposed tax and expenditure limitation bill. Parkhill, however, set himself apart saying that government needs the “flexibility” to deal with economic crises like the Great Depression. MacDonald said that the province was on its way to being back in the black by 2017, while Mather said he would support bal-

anced budget legislation. On health care, another stark example. Hillier supported publicly funded health care – for the most part, but left the door open for more choice, as he calls it, in the system, allowing for more private investment in the system. Interestingly, Mather said he favoured more public-private partnerships, while Parkhill vowed to keep public health care public. MacDonald crowed about his party’s increase in funding to all sectors of health care, from more hospitals and nurses to more home care money, but steered clear of how the massive jump in health care spending could be sustained. All four men bring something positive to the table. Hillier is the go-to guy for petitions, giving voice to frustration, and tabling more bills – by his own account – than any other MPP. There is no doubting his passion. As for MacDonald, his is exactly the type of sober, intelligent public servant you would want running the day-to-day administration of your shop. No drama, no surprises, just doing the hard work that needs to be done. Parkhill brings a personal approach to politics – having two children with autism, he sees firsthand how this province can fail its students, especially those with special needs. Working in the health care field, he also sees the deficiencies in our system, and wants to make it better. Mather practices what he preaches, growing organic food, and living off of the energy grid. We are not advocating which candidate to vote for next Thursday, June 12. But we do encourage you to vote. And we will give the final word to Mather, who may well have had the quote of the debate: “I am concerned about doing the right thing,” he ditorial - I haven’t said on climate change, though he well could have always liked cats, been speaking on many issues. “You don’t want you know. to hear about it. But I will do something about it. I I came from a dog family, hope you vote for me. But I don’t care if you like and was actually a little me.”

surprised to discover I like owning cats. It took a while, though. There are things about cats that can be annoying, such as hairballs, “cling-ons,” inappropriate scratching and that “I’m a cat and I don’t need you, human” attitude. A kazillion years ago when I was fairly new to this column and to the nuances of cat ownership, I wrote a rather sarcastic missive about cat ownership that coincided with “Adopt a Cat” week. It generated a “please don’t help us” letter from the SPCA. Anyway, you may have noticed I have come to like cats very much. I will still gripe about kitty traits when they involve me bleeding or cleaning or repairing damage, but lots of things in life need Band Aids, paper towels and patches, so cats shouldn’t take it personally. This is quite a preamble, and it may be leaving you a little alarmed, so let me assure you that there are no problems with our newest furry acquisition – Ramsey. In fact, since Ramsey came along I have earned the distinguished title of “The Cat Whisperer.” Ramsey’s a young fellow – a little over a year old – so he’s a busy guy with lots to do, especially when the windows are open and there are SQUIRRELS! and BIRDS! and CHIPMUNKS! and OMIGOD-THE-LEAVESARE-MOVING! With all of this going on, there is little time for snuggling, let me tell you. And yet, the humans try. Oh, how they try. Sometimes there is blood. (Followed by

the smell of hydrogen peroxide.) Maybe it’s from the experience of quieting agitated babies, but I have developed a knack for picking up a cat that wants to be somewhere else and, STEPHANIE GRAY so far, I have managed to avoid serious harm. Maybe just a little peroxide. I scoop up Ramsey, cradle him tightly, support his bottom and scratch his chin all at once, and within seconds he is purring and drifting off while others stand agog and bleeding. Boychild has asked me for “cat holding” lessons. Groom-boy, however, isn’t convinced that Ramsey likes him. I tend to think Ramsey likes everyone. Nevertheless Ramsey races to the door to greet whoever comes through it, even that mysterious Groom-boy guy. He follows Girlchild around like a puppy – perhaps he can relate to her size or maybe he just likes her shiny blond hair. He often curls up beside Boychild when he is watching TV. I figure he will surprise Groomboy someday soon – in a way that does not involve bleeding. I like being “the Cat Whisperer,” such as it is. Mostly it’s self-preservation: different animals like different things at different times in their lives, and if you learn this you bleed less. The late Filibuster disliked being petted anywhere below the shoulders and I learned this by earning some teeth marks. When MacGregor became elderly and his health declined, mine was his lap of choice. Same with Buster, who succumbed to cancer. At that time we said it was “the palliative lap.” I never would have guessed I’d become a cat magnet, but I’m certainly OK with it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Help us shop locally by offering better service in your stores To the Editor, I know that Perth’s business community needs and wants people to ‘shop locally.’ I generally support the need for citizens to do just that. However, recent experience in downtown stores leads me to the conclusion that business owners do not value walk-in business. One day last week I visited three local clothing stores. In the first I was greeted, but after about 15 minutes spent browsing through their wares, no

one offered to help me. In the second, I wasn’t even greeted and after spending about the same amount of time in the shop I left without having anyone ask if they could help me. In the third I greeted the woman at the cash by remarking that they had recently introduced one of my favorite lines of women’s clothing. The cashier did not offer to assist me, she was busy working with a smart phone or tablet and then left the store; empty except for someone in the back room who did not make it to

the front of the store. Today was the final straw. I was shopping in one of the many ‘dollar stores’ and asked where I could find printer paper. When I said I couldn’t find any, could they be out of stock? The cashier said, “I don’t know, maybe.” He was looking at a catalogue and didn’t offer to help. So I, and I assume, many others are left with no choice but to go out of town to shop - to

stores who need our purchases and provide the service necessary to encourage customers to buy. I’ve noticed that many local businesses are short-lived. I’m not surprised. Many of us would like to buy locally but it seems that local business owners aren’t too interested in helping us spend our money. Karen Hickey Perth

More than just food at Farmers’ Market Canada must show leadership at home To the Editor, Re: Free yoga and bike repair/maintenance held at Farmers’ Market, Perth, May 24. I attended both last Saturday. I love yoga. The instructor was great and I am still pain free from the exercises. I plan on attending again and I am going to practise yoga on a daily basis. But I was really impressed by the care and attention the gentleman who was doing the bicycle repair gave me. I thought all that my bike needed was to have the seat raised. This kind gentleman spent 50 minutes repairing my bike. He adjusted the brakes, and gears; he cleaned the chain and he filled up the tires, all the while educating me on the regular care and maintenance of my bicycle. I have to say, this is a wonderful town for helping people. There are so many free and useful services provided. I really appreciate it. It is such a big help to me and is certainly making my retirement days much busier and more interesting. I thank all those who are providing these services. Photo by LAURIE WEIR Anne M.

To the Editor, Steve Woodman, executive director of Family and Children’s Services of FLA has submitted this letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper about events in Nigeria and here at home. I am writing to you about the nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls under the age of 18 years who were abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School in Northeastern Nigeria by the terrorist group Boko Haram. Not only have they been kidnapped, but there are also reports that the girls may be forced into marriage or sold into the sex slavery. These are things that are happening far away. So, many of us will watch in horror as the story of these girls unfolds and think they and our country are helpless to do anything about this intolerable situation. I’m writing you to say that we appreciate the offer of support you have given the Nigerian government and ask you to continue to play a leading role internationally on this issue. I also call on you to act on a similar issue much closer to home – the tragedy of the 1,200 missing or murdered aboriginal women over the last 30 years in Canada. While the Canadian disappear-

ances have been a steady trickle over decades and not a cataclysmic event over a few days, the pain and suffering of the parents is no less real and just as unrelenting in its need for answers. In order for Canada to be a credible leader internationally it must also show leadership at home. One of my proudest days as a Canadian was June 11, 2008 when you stood up in Parliament and apologized for the residential school tragedies. Canada evolved that day; it matured as a nation. It is only through dealing with the sins of the past that we can build a good path for the future. I urge you to continue the work of reconciliation and attempt to bring closure for as many of these families as you can. Thank you. Sincerely, Steve Woodman Executive Director John C. Stuart Manager, Community Relations Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington

Community - The biggest event at Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI) in recent days was the co-ed outdoor volleyball tournament. It was held on Monday. We had approximately 150 students participate in this all day event. Despite having “tournament” in its name it isn’t really a serious competition but more of a fun day in the sun. Thank you to all the organizers and participants for making this day so great. PDCI Geo-Venture students participated in the 2014 Envirothon academic competition on April 29. Schools from across North America compete in five categories: soils, forestry, aquatics and this year’s special topic, sustainable agriculture. The class entered four teams in their region and top teams finished first and third respectively with team E-Unit sweeping the board and winning all five categories, which had never been achieved. Students immediately left for their annual hiking trip through Frontenac Park. Poor weather battered the hikers but the Devils’ resolve held and the rain faded towards the end of a successful trip. Recently back from a two week co-op placement the students are hard at work. As well, the Devils just finished a three day white water canoe trip from May 27 to 29 on the Madawaska River and had a blast. Now the Devils prepare for book reports, an exam and a final week long canoe trip through Algonquin Park. Reminder to all Grade 9 students taking math this semester, that they will be writing the EQAO (Ministry of Education) math assessment test during first class of the day, on June 10 and 11.

Miss Thompson is a guest of Mrs. Ashe, at Rideau Ferry, and quite a fashionable party came into town for the occasion. Miss Thompson played against Mr. C. J.

Suggestions were made that we build our own cenotaph, or attend veteran services in the United States. Remembrance Day was only for Canadian veterans.

Trillium Foundation supports local research tershed residents and provide best management practices on how we can work together to reduce the problem.â&#x20AC;? Yee acknowledges that aquatic algae and plants are part of the natural ecosystem. They are the first vital links in a natural food chain that all other water creatures rely on including insects, frogs, minnows and small fish right up to top predators like bass, muskie and lake trout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Abundant growth occurs when things are out of balance and we start to see cause for concern,â&#x20AC;? says Yee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we have too many plants and algae decomposing in our water, it uses up too much oxygen and degrades the aquatic ecosystems. Reduced oxygen can cause fish kills and excessive blooms that are unappealing to water users. The good news is there are things we can all do to help maintain the balance and keep our lakes and rivers healthy and thriving natural environments.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our local watersheds are well known for their lakes and river systems,â&#x20AC;? says Yee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our continued enjoyment of these features depends on our careful stewardship.â&#x20AC;?

News - Thanks to a generous grant of $149,500 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), community groups, scientists and watershed agencies are teaming up to learn about what is impacting the health of lakes in eastern Ontario and to look for new ways to make changes in order to protect our lakes and rivers. Carleton University, Friends of the Tay Watershed, Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority and Rideau Valley Conservation Authority want to better understand what is causing green algae blooms and profuse aquatic plant growth in local lakes and rivers. OTF funding is making this special project possible. Over the next two years, the partners will conduct research and offer community outreach tools including workshops, fact sheets and best management practice guidance for waterfront stewards and property owners to better understand the ecological changes that are occurring in eastern Ontario lakes. The common perception throughout the Mississippi and Rideau watersheds is that aquatic algae growth is increasing. Algae blooms are becoming bigger â&#x20AC;&#x201D; despite little observed change in nutrient concentrations in the lakes. Working with partners, the collaborative will examine why this is happening, and together we can move towards solutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to understand the historic and current health of our eastern Ontario lakes and rivers,â&#x20AC;? says Mike Yee, RVCA biology and water quality manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a unique cause of excessive algae and plant growth, we want to know what it is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From there, we want to educate wa-

Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program, with focus on enhancing green spaces in communities. Locally, a group of individuals has been formed to spearhead various initiatives in Perth. One of the initiatives is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Love Your Curb Appeal!â&#x20AC;? Signs will be placed on the lawns of homes and businesses in the town of Perth to recognize worthy recipients for

helping to keep Perth clean and beautiful. These signs are intended to stay in place for one week and then the recipient is encouraged to pay it forward to another deserving property owner. Volunteer judges from Communities in Bloom will be visiting Perth on Aug. 7 and 8 to make their evaluations and score Perth against certain criteria. Communities are evaluated in six categories, with each category being awarded various points. Communities participate with others in their population category within their province. Those areas receiving a score of five blooms will automatically be entered into the National Communities in Bloom contest.

Shortbread competition Walkers Shortbread is sponsoring this event in association with the Commonwealth Insurance Perth Kilt Run. Walkers have been baking shortbread in the Scottish Highlands since 1898. The family-owned company has set a high bar for quality shortbread that is recognized internationally. Are you up for the challenge? Entry forms and instructions are available from The Running Goat (at 74 Foster St., Perth, Ontario) or from http://perthkiltrun.blogspot.ca. Baking entries must be dropped off at Stewart Park between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 21. Winners will be announced at 4 p.m., wrapping up in time to cheer on the youngest Kilt Runners.

Community - What better cookie to offer exhausted kilt runners than homemade shortbread? This buttery treat is generally associated with Scotland, but has universal appeal. You may claim to bake better shortbread than anyone you know. Why not put this to the test by competing in the second annual Perth Kilt Run Shortbread Competition? The event will coincide with the annual Kilt Run, taking place on Saturday, June 21. This year there are two categories of bakers: Kids (under 16) and Adults (16 or older). There are cash prizes, baking supplies, ribbons and plaques to be won, in addition to bragging rights.

One issue that sets Perth apart from some other railway towns is that it is almost completely cut in half when a long train roars through, in effect, possibly disrupting fire, ambulance and police service. “(We were) drawing certain things

MP vows to keep Perth ‘in the loop’ on rail safety together, and they will narrow it down to just the few services that they need,” said Graff, to, say, rehabilitate a former felon back into society, or to help atrisk youth. He added that privacy was paramount in this process, to protect the person that was being helped. Graff also got a chance to meet briefly with Ontario’s Ombudsman, Andre Marin, and “one of his big concerns is arbitration,” which he sees as a factor in rising police costs.

Perth Summer Pops concert series Community - The Perth Citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Band is preparing for its 2014 season of its annual Summer Pops Concert Series. All concerts are held on the bandstand located in Stewart Park, directly behind the Town Hall, in historic downtown Perth. This tradition has continued on the bandstand each summer since it was constructed in 1931 and all concerts are free to the public. Each concert features a variety of music ranging from classical to Broadway and movie themes, as well as jazz, blues, and other popular forms. In addition, conductor Brian Tackaberry includes heritage pieces from the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic files and songs by Canadian composers or arrangers. The Aug. 7 Concert will mark the 100th Anniversary of the start of the First World War and feature music played by the band from 1914 to 1918. The Perth Citizens Band was involved in sending off the first local troops in 1914 and welcoming back the returning veterans, as well as benefit concerts throughout the war to keep up morale on the home front. All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. except the June 26 concert which begins at 7 p.m. and is held in conjunction with the strawberry social sponsored by the Perth Rotary Club.

SAFETY TIPS Smoke Alarms: Test your smoke alarms. If a fire starts in your home while you are asleep, you want to know about it immediately. Some homes are equipped with electrically connected smoke alarms that may not work when the power is out. Make sure your home has a batteryoperated smoke alarm on every level.

Audience members are invited to bring along a lawn chair or simply enjoy a leisurely stroll through the park during the performances In addition, the band will be performing at the North Lanark Regional Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Strawberry

Festival on Sunday, June 22. The Pops Concerts for this year are on June 12 & 26, July 10 & 24, and Aug. 7 & 21. For more information visit the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.perthband.ca

PSB to extend police surveys to get more youth input By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Perth Police Services Board (PSB) is extending its deadline for its survey of the OPP when only 76 were filled out. The original plan had been for the surveyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preliminary report to be completed this month, and incorporated into the business plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(It) 76 was a bit less than I had hoped for,â&#x20AC;? said Stephanie Gray, chair of the PSB, during the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting held on Thursday, May 29 at the provincial offences court at town hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the responses were (from) over the age of 40, so we did not hit a lot of younger people.â&#x20AC;? In order to round out the numbers, and demographics, Deputy Mayor John Gemmell suggested dropping surveys off at the Royal Canadian Legion branch and at service clubs. It was also suggested that surveys be dropped off at YAK, the youth club on Sherbrooke Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a problem with extending the deadline to cover the places we missedâ&#x20AC;Ś if we are not happy with the amount of feedback,â&#x20AC;? said Gray. The PSB will have to rely on physical copies of the survey from now on though since the online survey closed on May 19. She added that getting surveys to targeted groups like YAK and the Legion was important since â&#x20AC;&#x153;an anonymous survey is of no use to us if we are dealing with stakeholders.â&#x20AC;? Gray had already manually inputted printed-off submissions and one preliminary finding that she did feel confident in drawing from the results was that â&#x20AC;&#x153;people want to see more of the police.â&#x20AC;?

by a $200 fine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is very closely related to how Carleton Place administers their (bylaw),â&#x20AC;? said Gray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought that $200 was a reasonable place to start.â&#x20AC;? There was some disagreement however at last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting about just who would sign the letters, and who would generate them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the intent of what we do,â&#x20AC;? said Insp. Derek Needham, detachment commander for the Lanark County OPP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should come from the municipality.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is understood that the town would generate the letter, but it would be signed by you (Needham),â&#x20AC;? said Gray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign these,â&#x20AC;? said Needham. The issue will likely go before town council later this summer, but is already receiving scrutiny from councillors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not considered to be a revenue-generating thing, nor should it be,â&#x20AC;? said Gemmell, with any money raised going into the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general False alarms The PSB was brought up to date on proposals police funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fine is a last resort,â&#x20AC;? agreed chief adminisfor a false-alarm bylaw, which could take the form of two letters for the first two offences, followed trative officer John deRosenroll.

Bringing honesty, integrity and good policy back to politics

Buck Lake Boatilla celebrates 10 years of fun for kids with disabilities Community – What started as a too successful Neighbourhood Watch Program 10 years ago in the Buck Lake area has blossomed into an annual event of giving, sharing and community celebration. It began with a small group of Buck Lakers who were looking for something charitable to do after successfully eradicating crime in the local area. “We thought about how lucky we are to be able to enjoy our beautiful lake,” stated Ross Trudel the Chairmen of the Neighborhood Watch Group. “Why shouldn’t we provide an opportunity for physically challenged kids to experience for themselves what we live with year round?” So we organized a small fund raising group, had a boat tour the south branch of Buck Lake and culminated with a community barbecue. “Ten years ago our objective was to send one kid to Easter Seals Camp Merrywood on the Big Rideau. We did that by raising $3,700,” stated Liz Graham-Trudel the Boatilla’s treasurer. Through the years participation in the annual Buck Lake Boatilla has deepened and widened and now includes not only fundraising activities in communities near Buck Lake but also as far away as Pennsylvania, Lancaster and Toronto. Last year the Boatilla raised over $22,100. “It is truly amazing and disproportionate what such a small community of 350 residents can accomplish,” observed Kristin Mullin Easter Seal development officer for southeast Ontario. In nine years Buck Lakers have raised over $108,000 and sent 54 physically challenge children and youth to Camp Merrywood. In Ontario there are more than 20,000 children, youth and young adults with a physical disability and they are striving for independence, acceptance and achievement. The Buck Lake Boatilla is a perfect fit for a Camp Merrywood fund raiser.” “Our success is without a question due to the generosity and dedication of the Buck Lake community,” noted Crawford MacIntyre, one of the

boatilla organizers. “But our success has been due, in part, to the integrity of our fund raising efforts. One of our principles has been that 100 per cent of all funds collected go towards sending kids to Easter Seals Camp Merrywood. All expenses are absorbed by individuals – even the drinks, buns and hamburgers for the community barbecue are donated by local merchants.” In giving, the Buck Lake community also gets back. “Living in rural Ontario has its challenges,” said Duncan Sinclair, a long-time organizer of the Boatilla. “It is important we are good neighbours, support local activities and come together as a community once in a while. Community building has been one of our key objectives and our annual Buck Lake Easter Seals Boatilla does that. It’s great to see how the community pitches in. Even our youth are participating through fundraising bake sales and barbecues.” “It is all about the kids,” said Saundra Rider, long-time supporter and resident of Buck Lake. “All that we do is focused on the special kids of Camp Merrywood and seeing that they can enjoy for a brief period what our families enjoy all year. Sending a kid to camp has always been the motto of our Boatilla.” At 2 p.m. on June 28 the Buck Lake Community will celebrate its 10th anniversary of the Kids to Camp Merrywood Boatilla by assembling all sorts of watercraft at the culvert on the south branch of Buck Lake. As in previous years a celebratory tour of the Lake will take place followed by a community barbecue at Hidden Valley Road. “It’s a fun day for all,” said Sandy Payne, an organizer. “Each year is special when you see the smile on the kids’ faces having enjoyed the boat ride and our beautiful lake. However, this year is really special as it is our 10th anniversary and it would be wonderful if we could send 10 more kids to Camp Merrywood.” Submitted by Buck Lake Association

Music of the Tay bridges gap Arts - The Music of the Tay choir has been dedicated to bridging music and community in Perth since its humble beginning. In 2001, Brent and Shelley McLaren formed the Men of the Tay, a group of 12, all singers, who would gather once a week around a piano in a living room, recite borrowed musicals with one another with attempted harmonics and enjoy the art of music. After emerging to perform for the general public and out of an idea to offer the same opportunity for female members of the community, the Women of the Tay was formed in 2008. Their focus ever since: â&#x20AC;&#x153;the joyful results of our weekly therapy sessions.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a phrase coined that was by the Women (of the Tay) in 2008,â&#x20AC;? says Brent, who holds a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in music from State University of New York and a lifetime of experience as professional singer and recitalist under his belt. Now a retired high school teacher of music and mathematics, Brent occasionally manages both choruses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have singers with a lot of training and singers who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even read music, all able to leave the stress and pressure of the day at the door, laugh and sing,â&#x20AC;? he says. The Men of the Tay is now 36 members strong. They convey a wide range of music: from Broadway, to folk and church songs and even comedy numbers. Though Brent says it has remained true to its foundations.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The concerts are just the icing on the cake,â&#x20AC;? he says, adding that the opportunity to work together and learn about music is the primary ideal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is truly therapy, something we all look forward to. Shelley makes it great.â&#x20AC;? A Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University music major also now retired from teaching high school students, Shelley currently serves as the full-time director of both the Men and Women of the Tay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ladies consider the practices we have every week like therapy where they can come and sing and forget about all the other things that they have on their plates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; life, in other words â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for two hours,â&#x20AC;? says Shelly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They laugh and work hard together and to them thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just good singing but therapy for all at a very cheap price.â&#x20AC;? Since 2008, the Women of the Tay has grown to 48 members, which, according to Shelley, is currently its full complement of singers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They always leave happy and with a feeling of fulfillment,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes they come in tired after working all day and leave quite invigorated from their singing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hence, the weekly therapy sessions.â&#x20AC;? The choruses will be preparing for their Christmas concert starting Sept. 15 for the men and Sept. 17 for the women. Rehearsals will take place at the First Baptist Church from 7 to 9 p.m. To learn more about their events and how to participate, visit www.musicofthetay.com

Plenty of excitement this June at Full Circle Theatre Arts – Even though Vacant House Theatre are Otttawa’s newest professional theatre company who have already had a solid, well-received hit with their very first production, the Leah Cherniak, Robert Morgan, Martha Ross comedy, The Anger In Ernest And Ernestine; when they bring that show to BarnDoor Productions’ Full Circle Theatre in Perth this Friday (June 6), they will be stepping onto a stage (as a company) for the first time! The paradox of that is that The Anger In Ernest And Ernestine is a play about a young couple living in a cramped basement apartment, which Vacant House Theatre performed last April in Ottawa – in a cramped basement! Moving onto a stage makes for a very different experience for both performers and audience, and the young troupe are excited to find out what those differences will be. That Vacant House is up to the challenge is evident from the reviews of their first production: “This is a very special theatre experience, folks, and I definitely urge you to strap on your backpack...for (an) outing you won’t soon forget,” said Kevin Reid, writing in The Visitorium blog. Valerie Cardinal, On Stage Ottawa said “... a charming tale, alternately touching, hilarious and absurd. I think Leah Cherniak, Robert Morgan and Martha Ross’s script can rightfully be called a modern Canadian theatre classic.” The Anger In Ernest And Ernestine is about a young couple learning to live with each other and Vacant House’s production of it is funny, exciting and captivating. Featuring a cast of young regional professionals, including Perth’s own Alexis Scott who has previously appeared on BarnDoor Productions’ stages in The Chimes and Dark of the Moon, it’s a unique opportunity to see a Canadian classic in a fresh and funny staging by up and coming new talent. The Anger In Ernest And ErnesSubmitted photo tine runs for three performances only, Friday, June 6, Saturday, June 7 at 8 Karina Milech and Patrick Kelly are Ernestine and Er- production The Anger In Ernest And Ernestine to p.m. and Sunday, June 8 at 2 p.m. at nest when Vacant House Theatre brings the Ottawa Perth’s Full Circle Theatre, June 6, 7 and 8 only.

Full Circle Theatre. Hard on that, BarnDoor Productions will launch an event-filled summer at Full Circle Theatre the very next Friday. That’s right, June 13, which is an appropriate and auspicious date for the show that is opening, the classic thriller Gaslight. Patrick Hamilton’s 1936 script is a tense, engrossing psychological thriller that made stars of Vincent Price and Angela Lansbury. It’s a tale of a woman’s descent into madness – but why and how is a story that is as filled with flickers and glimmers and uncertainty as the gaslight that provides the mood of the play. Set in mid-Victorian times, Gaslight (or Angel Street as it was called on Broadway) has been made into two movies, in 1940 and 1944, the second starring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. It has even become a psychological term, “gaslighting,” meaning to cause someone to question their sanity. BarnDoor Productions (BDP) has brought their own brand of high-energy, high-excitement performance to the show, trimming the now-public-domain play by some forty pages, turning it from a rather old-fashioned three-act into a tense, fast moving and gripping two hour production. Those who saw last June’s Deathtrap from BDP will remember the kind of edge-of-the-seat excitement that Gaslight will re-capture. Theatre-goers should note: Gaslight, and BDP’s July/August production of the classic comedy The Country Wife, will begin at a special “summer” start time, 7:30 p.m. for evening performances and 1:30 p.m. for matinees. Gaslight will run June 13, 14, 19, 20, 21 at 7:30 p.m. and June 15 and 22 at 1:30 p.m. Along with some special musical events this summer and the presence of workshops and performances by The Academy For Musical Theatre, Full Circle Theatre will be busy, indeed this summer. Information can be obtained and tickets for Ernest And Ernestine and Gaslight can be reserved by calling 613267-1884 or going to BDP’s website at www.barndoorproductions.ca.

Key stuck in ignition leaves motorist seeking help

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

at least removed for cleaning, repair, or replacement. Any good quality lock deicer will have a light lubricant formulated into its make-up and a shot or a few drops twice a year (depending on the environment) should keep things moving. The most common failure on any vehicle with a remote trunk-lid or lift-gate release is the seizing of the lock cylinder on these panels. They are exposed to a constant barrage of wet salty brine from our winter roads and they seldom get used as drivers prefer the convenience of the power release. If you’re faced with replacing one of these, your costs can be reduced by treating the lock cylinder to a little desalination bath with CLR Brand calcium, lime, and rust remover. If you have the skills or can coerce a home-driveway technician to remove the lock cylinder for you (it’s a fairly easy DIY job), simply place it in a bowl with enough CLR to cover it. Remove any attached plastic parts. The cylinder will immediately start foaming as the cleaner dissolves the salt de-

posits. This and a little elbow grease with a used toothbrush can bring a stubborn lock back to use avoiding the price of a new one. Keep in mind, most off-shore brand vehicles (and even some Detroit-Three models) don’t supply non-coded lock cylinders; they are only available pre-coded with a new key. “Hi Brian We have a BMW sedan that has a feature where the engine turns off when stopped in traffic or at a light and automatically turns back on when you press on the accelerator. It has an on/off switch just below the main start button. We often find this ‘eco stop-start’ feature is on even when we have turned it off. We assumed we accidentally brushed by it and accidentally turned it back on but you got me wondering...is that part as flimsy as GM’s and does driving over bumps, etc., affect it by turning it on and off?” Many thanks, Colette This idle-stop feature that is present on all gasoline-electric hybrids and is now being ad-

opted by traditionally powered vehicles as a fuel economy system, started being used by BMW on their 3 and M series and even the Mini line back as early as 2008. But unlike hybrids, the BMW version has its share of detractors thanks to a reportedly harsh and delayed take-off from a stop after the idle-stop had turned off the engine. The driver option to defeat this (by means of the dash button) is reset to active (idle-stop on) every time the vehicle is restarted. M series owners are able to deactivate this feature on a more long-term basis by selecting a ‘last-user’ mode that ‘remembers’ drivers’ preferences. Other BMW lines can have this done via a computer re-flash at an authorized dealer. BUSFUSION, a Volkswagen camper camping event returns to the Almonte Fairgrounds from June 5 to 8.

Lifestyle – “I read a recent article on ignition switch and lock concerns with interest. By coincidence, yesterday my key got stuck in the ignition and could not be removed. This is on a 2012 Hyundai Accent Hatchback. When the mechanic finally removed the key by disassembling the steering column, we could see a slight scarring barely visible to the naked eye on the key. Could you tell me if this is a problem that the Accent has or could the key have been scarred in some other way that caused the problem The mechanic had to ‘wiggle and jiggle’ to get the key out.” John The Accent isn’t particularly known for ignition lock problems but these symptoms can appear on just about any automotive lock cylinder. The cause is most likely a lock tumbler that isn’t retracting to let the ‘cuts’ of the key pass by as it’s going in or out of the lock. The tumblers are equipped with small springs and travel in a machined slot. Dirt, grit, and dust can accumulate and cause tumblers to stick. Simply spraying in a lubricant may not solve the situation and in some cases this might make things work. Never use spray lubricants with any thickness like lithium grease (they can trap dirt). If a few drops of light lube don’t solve things, the lock will usually have to be disassembled or

Diamond in the rough: a 1964 Impala SS convertible transmission. Dave had a special reason for wanting to buy this car. He had learned to drive on his parents’ light blue ’64 Impala 2-door hardtop. It had a 283 with Powerglide, plus tilt steering and a rear seat speaker. On July 20, 1969 (the same day Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon), young Dave was on a motor trip with his parents when they stopped at a motel in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Their ’64 Impala broke down and they had to get the valves ground the next day. After getting home, Dave’s parents bought a new car and the ’64 Impala was retired to Dave’s grandmother’s farm across from Colasanti’s north of Ruthven. Dave as young as eight began bombing around on the farm in the ’64 Impala hardtop. Now he has a ’64 Impala SS convertible. It needs a new floor but he got the engine running, and all engine parts are original except for an H.E.T. distributor (more

reliable than points). When I last talked to Dave about his car, he said he was planning to give it a complete mechanical restoration but not a cosmetic restoration, which would entail new paint, new interior, new whitewalls, new top, new chrome, etc. I hope to return for more coverage of this car with this title: “Twice the fun for half the money.” I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, Ont. N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free auSubmitted photo tographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETEC- Dave Taves with his 1964 Impala SS convertible.

Lifestyle – It arrived at the home of Dave Taves north of Leamington, Ont., on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013: a weather-beaten 1964 Chevy Impala SS convertible. Dave works with Dan Fistor in nearby Windsor. Dan’s brother bought a five-dollar lottery ticket in London, Ont., in the 1980s and won the car! It was running and driveable but needed work. Dan’s brother parked it in an underground garage in London and the last license sticker was for June 1996 when Dan’s brother passed away. Dan inherited the car. The car now came to Windsor to Dan’s brother-in-law’s heated garage. Before that, it was stored in a pole barn and had to be moved three times because of loss of storage. One day nearly two years ago, Dan phoned Dave to say someone wanted to buy the car, and he asked Dave what he thought it was worth. An offer for $2,500 had come in and the odometer reading was 38,613 miles. Dave asked Dan if he might regret selling it. Dan thought about this for another year, then sold the car to Dave. It arrived at Dave’s house on a trailer. It has the original 283 V8 and two-speed Powerglide

Students speak of experiences in Guatemala mission trip News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The following are highlights from the Catholic District School Board meeting held May 20 at the board office in Kemptville. The CDSBEO board of trustees had the privilege of hearing testimonials from Catholic secondary students who had the opportunity to participate in the Guatemala mission trip over March break. Clearly moved by their lifechanging, profound experiences, the group gave an emotional and heartfelt account of their time in Guatemala, and how they were particularly moved by the children at the Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos (NPH) Orphanage. Thirty-nine students, along with ten supervisors, from seven secondary schools, participated in the experience. Upon their arrival, the group travelled immediately to the NPH Orphanage in San Andres, approximately one hour from Guatemala City. Working at the orphanage was truly the core of the Guatemala mission trip experience. Here, the group stayed for six days, assisting with construction projects, building maintenance, gardening, and teaching English lessons. After-work activities at the orphanage included soccer games, dancing, and lots of interaction with the children. Participants then left the orphanage and visited the lakeside resort town of Panajachel on day seven, where they had a guided tour of a

Mayan village and visited a local market. On day eight, participants had a guided tour of Antigua, the old colonial capital, and enjoyed a group dinner at a local restaurant. This special evening was an opportunity to reflect upon and discuss the experiences they encountered throughout their time in Guatemala. Each person who attended the trip brought with them supplies to help the orphanage which included games, playing cards, and colouring books. In addition to toys and other fun items, ten suitcases filled with clothes, blankets, toiletries and school supplies, as well as one suitcase full of medical supplies were brought. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These would have made a world of difference to the nurses and the children,â&#x20AC;? explained Phil Boyd, a student from St. Luke Catholic High School, during his testimonial. The trip provided students with the opportunity to make a difference in a global community, and many commented on how this experience has helped them to understand poverty, and that happiness can be achieved despite lack of material goods. The students thanked the board for their prayerful and financial support of the mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is obvious that there has been a great emotional attachment to the people and the culture, and the whole experience,â&#x20AC;? responded board chair Brent Laton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know you bring those lessons and experiences back

Catholic Education Week Each year, the Catholic community of Ontario engages in a weeklong celebration of the unique identity and distinctive contributions of Catholic education during Catholic Education Week. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration entitled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Catholic Education: Serving in the Love of Christâ&#x20AC;? took place the week of May 4 to May 9. The week began with the celebration of the annual board-wide mass, which was led by Bishop Marcel Damphousse of the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall. Superintendent of school effectiveness, Marg Shea-Lawrence, gave an overview of the weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events, which was followed by a video presentation. Throughout the week, CDSBEO schools shone a great light on the ways in which CDSBEO Catholic schools serve in the love of Christ. The week was marked by special activities and events for all grade levels, including prayer celebrations, service activities, celebrations of the arts, sporting events, and fundraisers; indeed the spirit of service was the hallmark of each event. The video, which highlights some of the many happenings at CDSBEO schools during Catholic Education Week, can be viewed on the CDSBEO YouTube Channel (www.youtube.com/CDSBEOVideo). Submitted by the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario.

2015 Nissan Micra: Good things really do come in small packages

BRIAN TURNER

erage sized adults without cramping. A tall roof line which doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drop to the rear protects head-room for rear passengers. Wide opening doors mean easy entry and exit and the hatchback lift-gate has a suitably low lift-over height for easy cargo loading. Large windshield and door glass surfaces give a great view outwards and help to alleviate the impression of being in a sub-compact. And surprise; the rear door windows actually go all the way down! Cup holders and storage pockets abound in the Micra, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect console armrests or storage bins. On the road, the Micra is surprising-

My Take MARK HASKINS

made a mistake. Unfortunately only true loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kiss can break the curse, and Maleficent doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe such a thing exists. Maleficent is a rich and gorgeous movie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of fantasy you can completely immerse yourself in and become lost. The detail, the colour, the lighting everything evokes a sense of wonder and awe. It is a true work of beauty. The plot is intriguing. There are no villains or heroes in the traditional fairy tale sense. There are simply people who make mistakes, and either try to make amends, or allow themselves to be ruled by them. It gives the classic tale a very modern twist. Sharlto Copley expertly crafts the character of Stefan as a flawed and mortal king. Sam Riley is brilliant as Maleficentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shape-changing raven. Elle Fanning easily falls into the role of the innocent and naive princess. But of course the real story here is Angelina Jolie. Maleficent is wonder and power. She is an unearthly force of nature and Angelina Jolie revels in every inch of this character. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sight and a performance to behold. Fairy tales have a way of capturing our imagination which is probably why we keep telling them over and over again. Maleficent continues that tradition.

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Every generation has its fairy tales or, to be more precise, their version of fairy tales. These stories have evolved and changed with every telling over hundreds of years. Maleficent is the latest re-telling of a classic fairy tale, and what a re-telling it is. In this tale of Sleeping Beauty there are two kingdoms at odds with one another. In one kingdom lives the mortals, and in the other lives the magical fare folk. Among them lives the fairy Maleficent (Angelina Jolie). As the biggest and strongest of the fairies she is their self-appointed protector. As a child Maleficent met a human. The two became friends and over time became something more. Maleficent loved Stefan (Sharlto Copley), but Stefan was ruled by ambition. He betrayed Maleficent by stealing her wings to secure his throne. It broke Maleficentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart, and she vowed vengeance. When King Stefan and his Queen have a daughter Maleficent takes it as her opportunity for revenge. She curses the little princess then leaves Stefan to wallow in his despair. Stefan, in a blind panic, does all he can to avoid the curse including secretly sending his baby girl to live with three pixies. All the while Maleficent, and her raven Diaval (Sam Riley), watch the princess waiting for the curse to take hold. Maleficent protects the young babe, and watches over the little girl, until one day Maleficent steps from the shadows to meet Aurora (Elle Fanning). The meeting is not what Maleficent expected, and she wonders if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

out sacrificing performance. NRCan ratings for the Micra automatic are 8.8 L/100 km city and 6.6 L/100 km highway (32 mpg and 43 mpg respectively). As this vehicle is not for sale the US, there are no EPA ratings available. The 41 L fuel tank should provide a mixed driving range of just over 450 km and cost about $47 to fill at $1.33/L. On the maintenance side of the coin, the Micra promises to be just as cheap. The P185/60R15 tires on my tester are available from a very wide selection of makers with many in the $100-$175 price range. Front brake pads and rotors will set you back $92 and $97 respectively, an air filter costs $22, and a dealer oil change runs around $40 (no synthetic oil required). For a great commuter car that can serve a variety of tasks well at an outstanding price the Nissan Micra is well worth a look and a test drive.

ly peppy and the longer-than-average wheelbase for this segment, allows for a solid and smooth ride as well as more interior space. Its exterior aerodynamics minimizes the effects of cross-shear winds and keep things quieter than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect for a car of this price. The 109 hp engine output allowed the Nissan team to use a final-drive gear ratio that keeps the engine from revving high at highway speeds and leaves some reserve power for passing and lane merges. Even the use of A/C doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause a hunt-and-surge engine speed syndrome that plagues a lot of small displacement engines. In-town manoeuvering is a breeze thanks to the Micraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall size, good sight lines and an electric power-steering system. While this vehicle is aimed squarely at urban commuters, it is quite capable of longer treks without passenger discomfort. The reasoning behind a dual fuel injection system (two injectors per cylinder) was to provide a 57 per cent finer fuel spray for improved mileage with-

said Christian Meunier, president of Nissan Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There has been extensive support from the global leadership team to make this happen, recognizing the potential of the Nissan brand within Canada, and the importance of bringing cars that will resonate with Canadian consumers.â&#x20AC;? If it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already been drilled into your head from preliminary advertising, the Micra starts out the price journey at $9,998 for the entry-level version with a 1.6 L DOHC 4-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The power plant is equipped with dual fuel injection and variable valve timing and puts out 109 hp. My tester from Smiths Falls Nissan was the SV version with an automatic transmission priced at $13,698 (all prices before destination fees, taxes, and any current incentives). The top dog in the Micra clan; the SR comes in at $15,748. My SV level was impressively equipped with power windows/locks, cruise control, air-conditioning, remote keyless entry, rear wiper, rearview camera, cell-phone hands-free system, six-way driver seat, steering wheel controls, audio with auxiliary inputs, and a block heater, (yes, it was made for Canada). While this is a subcompact, interior room is comfortable with higher-thanexpected seating providing leg comfort for longer journeys.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The vehicles I road test for these reviews (yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough job, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to make sacrifices) come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and local dealerships. I prefer to use dealership units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The 2015 Nissan Micra I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at Smiths Falls Nissan. Nissan has fired a major shot across the bows of their competitors with the introduction of a sub $10,000 vehicle and from a first drive aspect; it looks like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten things right. The 2015 Micra is setting some new rules in this game and consumers are destined to be the winners. While the Micra is aptly named a global car by Nissan (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being sold in 160 countries), it will not be offered for sale in the US. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very rare to offer a car in Canada that is not also offered in the United States and with Micra, Nissan will be the only mainstream automotive brand to bring a high volume car specifically for the Canadian market,â&#x20AC;?

Carbon Monoxide Alarms: Installing a carbon-monoxide alarm near the sleeping areas of your home will alert you to the presence of this deadly gas. It is a good idea to invest in a battery-operated alarm that will continue to work during power failures.
