To make the decision to not pursue opportunities for provincial funding was short-sighted. In the long term, this need for transit isn’t going to go away. It’s going to be absolutely necessary for the growth of the area. It’s a unique selling point for outlying communities to offer to those looking to move to the area. City of Kawartha Lakes isn’t just about Lindsay, and taxpayers in the smaller communities should be angry that their dollars are funding the “big city” transportation, with little consideration for their needs. In this next municipal election, candidates should be ready to answer some hard questions about this issue.

In the last issue of The Kawartha Promoter, we had an item about the “death” of the rural transit project in the City of Kawartha Lakes. It’s not really dead, but certainly off the municipal table until 2023. As a resident of Trent Lakes, I don’t know if I have the right to comment on it, but as a rural resident of the area (and editor of this paper), I will. I believe the City of Kawartha Lakes Council has made a terrible mistake. With our aging population in this area, coupled with the hazardous driving conditions in winter and the pressure on service from Community Care and other groups who provide transportation to seniors, the need for bus transportation in the outlying areas of the City of Kawartha Lakes should be a no-brainer. Perhaps the use of smaller buses, more promotion about the service, 2-day a week scheduling and working with retirement homes to help get the information out to seniors in the communities would have made the rural transit program more successful.

The winter tends to be a difficult time for some people, not being able to get out as much as they would like with the snow and cold. I, for one, tend to hibernate at this time.

Notice to “Lost Family Pet”

My neighbour took a picture of the action while I was at work - it seems my Roderick (my black and white horse seen in the picture) has talked Tall Boy into breaking him out of his paddock. I have a feeling they may be headed to Edmonton to pursue Roderick’s dream career in the rodeo. S. Garbutt Stouffville

Note from the Editor: For those playing along in the search for Tall Boy, the missing giraffe, it seems perhaps Tall Boy was a misnomer. A few days after our last issue, we saw this photo on facebook. Perhaps after our pet’s encounter with Roderick, Ms. Garbutt’s black and white horse, Tall Boy (or should we now say Girl) started her own family. We wish her all the best.

At the meeting on February 13, Councillors had a discussion about the encroachment bylaws. These bylaws govern seasonal encroachments of patios on City sidewalks and entrance permits onto City roadways as well as docks and other structures on City property. Councillor Steve Strangway made a motion at this meeting to remove the dock portion from the bylaw. “We don’t know how many docks are in the city and historically, many docks have been there a long time.” He also said there needs to be more information about the scope of the problem before a decision should be made. Other councillors agreed with him, including Councillor Elmslie who said there are potentially thousands of properties that could be affected. Councillor Miller was concerned about the manpower needed to enforce the bylaw. Mayor Letham weighed in asking staff about liability if the dock was on City property. City Solicitor, Robyn Carlson answered that the City would be at risk if the bylaw wasn’t passed. The new policy will be complaint driven. If someone complains that your dock or structure may be encroaching on City property, you will be required to get a licence for it. If you do not get a licence, you will face a fine or the City will have the structure removed at your expense. The cost of a licence will be $125 for minor encroachments such as stairs, a small portion of a building, a sign, etc.; $150 for a dock or boathouse; and $200 for major encroaches like a shed or garage. Prices increase substantially if City-owned towers are involved. There are currently two areas in the City where a dock licence program is already in effect: Kenstone Beach and Thurstonia Park. Community Services estimates that this current licensing program brings


Building owners in the City of Kawartha Lakes may be able to get their hands on a low-interest loan from the City. At the meeting on February 13, Council voted to approve a loan program so businesses and communities can access low-interest loans to improve their buildings and promote local economic development projects. Kawartha Lakes Community Futures Development Corporation (KLCFDC) will pursue a maximum $500,000 interest-free loan to the City for administration/loan for local economic development improvement projects. The City would be required to commit to and match KLCFDC loan funds of $500,000. Some councillors were concerned about matching funds, but were assured that the loan would be interest free for the City. If approved by the federal government, this $1 million will allow funding and implementation of a Downtown Community Improvement Plan in 2018, an Economic Development Strategy, ongoing Council direction to address ‘derelict’ buildings, establishment of heritage districts, downtown revitalization plans, mixed-use affordable housing and business

in $44,000 to the City every two years, but takes 400 hours to administer for that two-year period. By shifting from a two-year licence to a five-year licence, administration time will be reduced. The Dock Policy proposes to increase the fee from $168.75 per twoyear period to $150 per year for a five-year term, reflecting both the increased value of the longer-term licence and bringing it in line with existing fees. Council narrowly passed a motion to keep docks included in the bylaw. A recorded vote was taken with Councillors Pollard, Macklem, Strangway, Elmslie, Stauble, Miller and Yeo voting to remove docks from the bylaw. Councillors Junkin, Jilesen, James, Dunn, Breadner, O’Reilly, Veale and Mayor Letham voted for the dock encroachment policy. Councillors Seymour Fagan and Martin were absent.

accessibility retrofits. Councillor Elmslie asked if the four communities already engaged in downtown revitalization plans would be getting the low-interest loans. CAO Ron Taylor answered that the loan program would be open to all communities within the City. Councillor Breadner asked how the loan applications would be prioritized. The CAO said, “There will be a public process and the eligibility parameters will be coming back to Council.” The loans will only be open to building owners, not tenants. If the grant is approved, the City is hopeful that intake for the low-interest loans can start in the Fall of 2018.

COBY MEDICAL CLINIC TO STAY PUT By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411

Residents of Coboconk and surrounding area are breathing a sigh of relief after City of Kawartha Lakes Council agreed to continue leasing a space for the temporary medical clinic. In late 2016 the Coboconk Medical Centre facility was found to have significant structural issues and is currently scheduled for demolition in 2018. A temporary facility has been provided in order for medical services to continue in the community. Costs associated with the supply of the temporary facility have been included in the 2018 Operating Budget. Staff recommended that the City should no longer be in the service of providing commercial space for the purpose of leasing to medical practitioners for their business and asked to terminate the lease of the temporary facility at the end of the term, which is January 2019. “It’s an abrupt statement that we are going to cut out services at the end of this year,” said Councillor Yeo. “So if we do it (renew the lease) on a year by year basis, it gives Council the opportunity to say ‘we haven’t got all the information yet so we are going to extend it one more year.’” Meanwhile, Councillor Macklem put forward a motion to direct staff to investigate the costs of erecting a permanent facility in Coboconk and that council direct staff to investigate the development of a grant program for the purposes of supporting the provision of medical services throughout the city. The motion also asked that current leases for medical practices be reviewed on a year-to-year basis until such time as Council has time to consider the other two options. The lease on the temporary medical centre costs the City approximately $36,000 to $38,000 a year. The motion passed.

Let The Mudslinging Begin

If you’re a politics junkie like I am, you are salivating at the possibility of both a provincial and municipal election occurring in 2018. If you are just a casual observer of the blood sport that politics has become at all levels, you are probably not looking forward to the onslaught of negativity and attack advertising that now dominates the political landscape. In the last three provincial elections in Ontario, almost half of the voting age population has stayed home. In 2014, only 52.1 percent of Ontarians chose to vote. When polled, Ontarians report their disgust with the negativity and the failure to focus on issues that make a difference in people’s lives as the reason they refused to vote. Multiple American studies give us a snapshot of how they feel about negative campaigning. • 76 percent of Americans would like to see negative campaigning and attack ads eliminated • 55 percent of Americans see negative attackorientated campaigning as unethical • 46 percent strongly agree that negative campaigning undermines and damages democracy • 57 percent of Americans say that an onslaught of negativity makes them less likely to vote. A final statistic questions the efficacy of even using negative campaigning, as only 13 percent of Americans find negative campaigning and advertising effective. Yet, political operatives believe that this kind of politics works. In the election campaign of 1960 between Richard Nixon and John Kennedy, only 10 percent of the advertisements were negative. By 2012, the campaign between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, only 14.3 percent of the ads were positive. With a provincial election mere months away, all three parties in Ontario are crafting messages that they think will resonate with Ontario voters. The Conservatives have made it very clear that they are going to make this campaign a referendum on Premier Kathleen Wynne, and many expect a withering round of negativity aimed at the sitting Premier. Some seasoned observers predict that if former Toronto city councillor

Doug Ford is selected to lead the Conservatives, decorum and civility on the campaign trail will hit an all-time low, as the Ford family is infamous for their “scorched earth” political campaigns which plumb the depths of negativity. Tragically, there is a reason for negative campaigning, despite the public’s revulsion towards it. Negative campaigning suppresses turnout, decreases confidence in the electoral process and turns people away from voting, and reinforces among the truly committed voter the preconceived thoughts they had about their candidate and the opposing candidates. A thoroughly negative candidate, with an angry and committed base, can win an election in which they have no right to be competitive if good people stay home...Donald Trump anyone? Is there an answer to this poison that has infected our political system? Mexico believes they have found it. In 2007, Mexico banned all negative television and radio advertisements. The Mexican Federal Electoral Institute closely monitors broadcast advertising and has ordered ads removed, public apologies issued by the offending campaigns and fines levied. Voter turnout has improved and Mexicans, when polled, claim they have more confidence in their system as a whole. It can only be hoped that we, as Canadians, follow the Mexican example, and finally force our politicians to tell us what they stand for rather than what they are against. It would be a refreshing change that our battered and vindictive current system badly needs.

FOUR Vie For Ontario PC Leadership

With the sudden departure of former leader Patrick Brown, the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party finds itself leaderless less than four months before a provincial election this June. A hastily called leadership convention for March pits four very different candidates battling for the honour of going to political war against Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne and NDP leader Andrea Horvath. As The Kawartha Promoter heads to press, the

February 22, 2018 - The Kawartha Promoter


declared candidates are former Toronto councillor Doug Ford, Toronto area lawyer Caroline Mulroney, long-time Conservative warhorse Christine Elliot and social conservative Tanya Granic Allen. Doug Ford is truly the wildcard at this convention. The former city councillor, and brother of the late Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, has a strong and loyal following in the GTA where the Ford name certainly has brand recognition. He is an unfiltered and plain speaking politician, very much in the vein of a Donald Trump. He has positioned himself as the outsider, who will battle to keep taxes low. Ford has few friends at Queen’s Park, and very little support from the Progressive Conservative hierarchy who are terrified by Ford’s lack of message discipline, and penchant for controversy. If Ford can convince the delegates that he can deliver a breakthrough in the 416 area code for the Tories, his candidacy may be soon seen in a much more serious light than it currently is. Caroline Mulroney is a political neophyte who has quickly attracted much attention since announcing her intention to run. Daughter of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, Ms. Mulroney, a Toronto area lawyer, has never held political office at any level. She has an impressive resume in private practice, and her charity

work has been enviable. Most of the party hierarchy that ensured Patrick Brown’s rise to power have coalesced around Mulroney, and as of early February, she has the support of more Conservative MPPs than two other two candidates combined. Opponents question her commitment to the rough-and-tumble environment of a leadership race followed by an election, and the press has already started to ask awkward questions about a potential Premier of Ontario who has all four of her children enrolled at wildly expensive private schools. Some wonder if Mulroney has a common touch that will resonate with voters outside of Bay Street and the GTA. Some locally expect that Laurie Scott will eventually follow some of her caucus mates and endorse Mulroney. Only time will tell. Christine Elliot is the only current leadership candidate with any Queen’s Park experience. A sitting MPP for nine years, Elliot was also the Deputy Conservative Party leader before she left politics two years ago to take a senior civil service position at the Department of Health. Elliot has run twice before for the Party leadership, losing to Tim Hudak in 2009 and Patrick Brown in 2015. Elliot, the widow of former federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, is widely respected in the 905 area code, and many suggest is the clear favourite of the federal Conservatives in Ottawa, who have apparently promised assistance to the Elliot campaign. Elliot is a seasoned campaigner, but may be tainted with her association with a party that has spent 14 years in opposition and is looking to rebrand itself with a fresh new face. One final candidate joined the race on February 15. Tanya Granic Allen of Parents As First Educators could be the most divisive of all the candidates running.  She is an avowed opponent of Ontario’s new sex education curriculum, pro-life supporter and an opponent of Patrick Brown’s attempts to move the party to the political centre. She and Doug Ford will be competing for the right wing of the party at the convention. Premier Wynne is likely hoping the Conservative leadership campaign and convention is a brutal, nasty and divisive affair where the Tories emerge politically weaker than they were before it began. It will be interesting to watch how this leadership run unfolds in real time.

BAD NEWS/GOOD NEWS Is our justice system unjust?

By Pamela VanMeer, Kawartha411

A few weeks ago, a white farmer in Saskatchewan was found not guilty in the shooting death of a 22yearold Indigenous man from Red Pheasant First Nation. Anger and frustration were quick to follow the verdict as many people, including our own Justice Minister, denounced the verdict and said the system needs to be fixed. The family of Colten Boushie was devastated. They said the system was stacked against Indigenous people. The facts that came out at trial show Boushie and four of his friends drove onto Gerald Stanley’s property in August 2016. One of them tried to start his ATV, prompting a confrontation. Stanley fired two warning shots. He smashed the windshield of the car Boushie was in and the 22-year-old was fatally shot in the head. Stanley said the shooting was accidental and the jury agreed. The problem for some is that the jury was all-white. Not an Indigenous person in sight. Some Aboriginal jurors were reported to have asked to be disqualified from the jury. Also, in Canada either side can use something called a peremptory challenge. It’s a tool that allows lawyers to disqualify potential jurors without providing a reason; in this case possibly blocking Indigenous jurors. For years, legal experts have been calling for more strict guidelines on the use of these types of challenges but to no avail. Make no mistake -- this is only one of the many

big problems with our justice system. The way the laws work, the deck is stacked against all victims. The past criminal history and criminal record of an accused cannot be brought up in court. The judge and jury are kept blissfully unaware of past criminal convictions of an accused no matter how serious. So if someone is on trial for murder and has previously been convicted of a number of murders, the judge and jury do not know that. The family of Colten Boushie have taken their message to Parliament Hill, meeting with the Prime Minister and Justice Minister. They want government officials to understand that this case was just another instance of the judicial imbalance when it comes to Indigenous issues. After the meeting, in the House of Commons, Prime Minister Trudeau renewed the government’s commitment to Indigenous rights. Working with Indigenous partners, it includes the development of a new legal framework that will encourage selfgovernance. The plan is to introduce legislation later this year, with full implementation ahead of the next election in October 2019. You can find more local news and reports on

The federal government is providing $46,000 to the City of Kawartha Lakes to help with planning and preventing the effects of flooding. This federal funding, under the National Disaster Mitigation Program (NDMP) will support updated floodplain mapping of the Mariposa Brook -- last mapped nearly 30 years ago -- by the Kawartha Region Conservation Authority (KRCA). The data from the updated floodplain mapping will help protect people and their property from flooding, as well as provide the City of Kawartha Lakes and Kawartha Conservation with better emergency management and planning information to help guide land-use decisions in the area. The Honourable Maryam Monsef, Minister of Status of Women and Member of Parliament for Peterborough—Kawartha said, “I welcome this funding as it will equip the City of Kawartha Lakes with the updated tools needed to help prevent and mitigate flooding in the area as well as assist the community’s efforts in managing emergencies. Water connects our communities, and ensuring smart management of this resource will see benefits across the region.” The Government of Canada cost-shares up to 50 percent of eligible expenses for provincial projects and 75 percent of eligible expenses for territorial projects. Through the Ontario Government, the Kawartha Region Conservation Authority is contributing $46,000 for the Mariposa Brook Flood Area Study. KRCA will be contributing its own $46,000 towards the Mariposa Brook Flood Area Study.

Ontario has entered into a new agreement with the University of Guelph for up to 10 years that will support the growth and competitiveness of Ontario’s agri-food sector, create jobs and further solidify the province’s position as a global leader in agri-food education, research and innovation. Jeff Leal, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, was joined by University of Guelph President Dr. Franco Vaccarino, in Guelph recently to sign the agreement and mark Canada’s Agriculture Day. The new agreement builds on a longstanding collaboration spanning more than 100 years and will strengthen Ontario’s leadership in agri-food research and innovation, food safety and the protection of plant, animal and human health. The agreement will also equip undergraduate and graduate students with the skills they need to become the next generation of researchers, innovators and policy-makers in Ontario’s growing agri-food sector.

Training the next generation of leaders in Ontario’s agri-food sector is part of our plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable childcare, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.


The 2016 Canadian Census of Agriculture statistics have been released and it looks, overall, like good news for the Ontario farming industry. • The area of land in crops increased 1 percent to 9 million acres as operators converted land into productive area. • In 2016, Ontario accounted for 59.8 percent of national corn for grain area, and 49.6 percent of national soybean area. Both of these crops saw their acreage in Ontario grow since the last census. • As in 2011, winter wheat held the third place in terms of area, despite a decline in area seeded. • Although the total farm area fell, the average farm size grew from 244 acres to 249 acres over the period. • The area dedicated to greenhouse flower and vegetable production grew by 17.7 percent from 2011 to 151.5 million square feet in 2016. Growth in greenhouse vegetables, which rose by 29.8 percent to 111.9 million square feet, drove the increase. • Field vegetable area grew by 4.5 percent from 2011 to 135,420 acres in 2016. • As in 2011, the largest three field vegetables in Ontario remained sweet corn (22,910 acres), green peas (16,268 acres) and tomatoes (15,744 acres). However, in 2016, green peas surpassed tomatoes as the vegetable with the second largest area in the province. • Milk production increased by almost 10 percent over the period between censuses.

The decline in the number of dairy cows was offset by increased production per animal attributable to improvements in animal nutrition, genetics, and production practices. • Women made up 29.7 percent of Ontario farm operators in 2016, up from 28.4 percent in the previous census. Nationally, women accounted for 28.7 percent of the farm operators in 2016. • In Ontario, 10.4 percent of farms reported having renewable energy-producing systems in 2015. At the national level, the percentage was 5.3 percent


In 2015, one-fifth of national gross farm receipts were generated by Ontario agricultural operations. In many cases, these farms have expanded into agri-tourism, which caters to a booming desire, especially on the part of citydwellers, to connect with the people who produce their food, and to enjoy authentic encounters in new places. It has the added benefit of diversifying income so farmers are not dependent on a single crop or product.

Renewed investment in our roads

By Mayor Andy Letham

Did you know that in Kawartha Lakes, we have 2,700 km of roads? That’s equal to keeping the roads from here to Alberta maintained, plowed, painted and accessible year round. Council recognizes that we have work to do with respect to the condition of our roads, especially gravel roads. With more roads than most municipalities in Ontario, and a relatively small tax base footing the bill, finding an effective solution has been a challenge. I’m pleased that we are now taking the necessary steps to address the challenge head on. For 2018, we are investing an unprecedented $22 million in capital replacement for roads, representing an increase of almost 30 percent compared to 2017. We are investing a further $766,000 in road-related capital improvements to support growth and development within our municipality. Part of the money will go to our new 10-Year Gravel Resurfacing Plan. This plan is designed to “keep our good roads good.” It’s the first time we’ve been able to plan long-term for our roads and to make sure we are prepared to address wear and tear that arises from weather, traffic and winter maintenance. Some of our roads, especially our gravel roads, require more than resurfacing. In order to “repair the bad roads,” Council has added a $4.6 million Gravel Road Rehabilitation Program to be spent over the next three years. Gravel road rehabilitation involves base repair, surface work, culvert replacement, berm removal, ditching and brushing. These investments in our roads have all been incorporated into our new 10-Year Financial Plan. This means that our forecasted revenues include what we need to start rebuilding our roads. AGENT I’m excited about this transition from reactive to proactive management of our $1.8 billion worth of roads assets. GENT Things won’t be perfect overnight, but together we are paving the way for smoother roads in Kawartha Lakes.

Sometime this year, organizers of the Kawartha Wildlife Centre hope to open their doors. But first, they would like to set up three years of operating costs and build and establish the centre with an estimated budget of $1 million in addition to purchasing a site. Organizers say the Kawartha Wildlife Centre will fill the gap of a much-needed wildlife centre, serving all Ontario species, here in the Kawarthas. The centre will run with volunteers and will rehabilitate sick, orphaned and injured animals in need of care. Currently, the closest wildlife centre servicing all species in Ontario is 75 kilometres away, meaning if a person finds an animal in need of care here in the Kawarthas, they have the difficult task of driving all the way to Bowmanville, Pefferlaw or Napanee. On March 10 at the Monocle Centre for the Arts in Peterborough, the organization will host an Art Gala. Tickets are $50 each with all proceeds going to the Kawartha Wildlife Centre. You can pick them up at the Otonabee Animal Hospital or order them online by emailing

United Way TIME TO HELP By Kirk Winter

The United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes is in the closing months of their 2017 campaign, and Penny Barton Dyke, the Executive Director, needs you to get involved. This year’s campaign set the goal of raising enough money to help 35,000 people in the City of Kawartha Lakes who access the agencies supported year in and year out by the United Way. The United Way is currently tracking ahead of last year’s totals, and Barton Dyke hopes the monetary goal of approximately $450,000 will be met. “It is difficult to predict the end result as there are several workplaces that are continuing to work on their campaigns,” says Barton Dyke.

In honour of Canada’s Sesquicentennial, the United Way strayed away from their tradition of having one or two ceremonial chair people for their campaign. Instead, the campaign went looking for 150 “Community Champions” who would be spokespeople for the United Way across the City of Kawartha Lakes. Barton Dyke was gratified when more than 250 community volunteers stepped up to take on the task of helping the United Way meet their financial commitments. Since 1986, the local United Way has invested more than $7 million back into the community. Of the total investment, $1 million has been directed to community development and this has taken place since 2005. United Way CKL has funded identified priorities across the City, including high school graduation bursaries to deserving students and 104 community gardens that help combat food insecurity. Agency investment has included support to worthy programs such as the Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters, therapy dogs that visit the elderly and shutins from St. John Ambulance, Community Living, CNIB and social service programs that patch over the cracks in Canada’s social safety net. On March 10, the United Way is hosting a “funspiel” curling tournament at the Lindsay Curling Club. The cost is $220 per team and entry fees are needed by February 19. The entry fee covers the use of brooms, door prizes, lunch, dinner and at least two

Highlands Propane – Customer Service First

By Kirk Winter

In 1991, Shawn Bellwood decided he wanted to be his own boss. At the age of 19, Shawn, a gasfitter by trade, bought his first propane truck and made a commitment to his new clients that they would receive focused and dedicated customer service every time they called. With a little luck, and an incredible amount of hard work, Shawn and his wife Jackie, along with the support of his family, have built Highlands Propane into one of the largest propane companies in the City of Kawartha Lakes. The business has grown from one employee in the beginning to now 29 full-time employees. That lone original truck, long ago retired, has been replaced by a fleet of eight state-of-the-art tanker trucks, one of which is now driven by Shawn’s son, Gage. Shawn’s brother, Jim, who started at the company when he was 16, continues to work for Highlands Propane as the general manager. A handful of original customers have now been joined by thousands of other families and small businesses that rely on Highlands Propane for all their heating needs. The company services clients from Huntsville in the north to Oshawa in the south, and from Havelock in the east to Uxbridge in the west. Propane delivery makes up approximately 80 percent of their business, with service and installation of propane and natural

gas appliances making up the other 20 percent. Shawn wanted to create a one-stop shop where sales, installations, and propane delivery are available at a single location. His business philosophy, that a handshake is his bond, has served Mr. Bellwood well. Many of his customers from the early 1990s are still with him and, as homes and businesses make their transition of the generations, the one constant is the Highlands Propane truck arriving on time with value-priced propane. Shawn’s father, Roger, a local antique car restoration specialist and mechanic, was the longtime Reeve of Fenelon Falls, and a bastion of the Fenelon Falls Lions Club. Shawn learned from an early age that you give back to your community as much as you can. Highlands Propane sponsors the Fenelon Falls Santa Day parade and fireworks, baseball teams at both house league and community levels, dragon boat racers and the Pink Ladies and is involved with both curling and lawn bowling in Fenelon and Bobcaygeon. His pride and joy is the Fenelon Falls car show, which is co-sponsored by the Fenelon Falls Lions Club. His dad co-founded the car show many years ago, and Shawn and his brothers, Jim and Andy, work hard to see the legacy continue. When asked to sum up the success that Highlands Propane has had the last 26 years, Shannon Post, one of Shawn’s managers put it simply, “We are a small company that tries to do the right thing every day.” Thousands of lifetime customers would agree with Mr. Post, and the future, indeed, looks bright for Highlands Propane.

Feb. 22 to March 7

Melodie McCullough

Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) An aura of disappointment may be hanging in the air for you, Leo, and you may experience feelings of uncertainly regarding your present position, especially career-wise. Do not give up! That’s an order because things will soon turn around.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Dear Aquarius: The things that make us fume and fret are the things that haven’t happened yet. So, don’t get ahead of yourself! Stay calm, and try not to turn your fears into unnecessary and demanding actions.

Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) There’s a little voice inside of you, Virgo, that wants to shout. It wants to tell you how spectacular you are. It wants to say “love yourself as much as you want”. Let it out! Let it out!

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) You have only so much energy, Pisces. You need to balance it among your physical, mental and emotional spheres, or else you will become lopsided! And we do not want that!

Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) We are all hurting in some way, dear Libra, some days more than other days and in some ways more than others. The trick is: how do we heal? If we can somehow see the pain in others and try in some small way to alleviate it, maybe that will ease our load also. It’s worth a try.

Aries (March 21 to April 20) Consumerism getting you down? Do you own too many contraptions that you don’t need? Is it time to simplify your life, perhaps, Aries? Try to find a way to declutter. It is good for the soul! Taurus (April 21 to May 21) We sense a questioning within you, Taurus, as to how you can best contribute to your community and society at large. This is good. It makes you think and sets you on a path towards compassion for others and civic service. Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Have you heard of “grounding”? It’s a practice that lets you distance yourself from your own extreme emotions – anxiety, irrational fear, anger, sadness – when you find yourself overwhelmed. There are mental, physical and soothing strategies you can use to detach in a healthy way. Maybe you should check it out, Gemini! Cancer (June 23 to July 23) Success is waiting to happen – to you, Cancer! Everything is in order, and there is a sense in your life that you can do whatever you wish and you will attain all goals. Open up your door to a great new day.

Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Simple precautions are needed, Scorpio. Don’t take anything for granted during this phase. Plan for the unplannable – and be prepared. Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Oh, Sagittarius! Sometimes we worry about you! Right now, please focus on any and all good things that are happening. Realise your present troubles are exactly that – the present! Imagine yourself one year from now. Will today’s problems still consume your thoughts? We don’t think so! Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) “Protect your enthusiasm from the negativity of others.”: H. Jackson Brown, Jr. Don’t let the naysayers drag you down, dear Capricorn. You know in your heart you are doing the right thing and you have every right to be proud and happy about your activities. We don’t know why the “others” can’t be happy for you, too, but – it doesn’t really matter.

Submitted by Jim Baldwin

At the February 7 meeting of the Kawartha Lakes Flying Club, a humble hero of World War Two was honoured. It was during the showing of “Reunion of the Giant” -- a video covering the preparation and flight of the Canadian War Heritage Lancaster to England to join in the air show, with the only other flying Lancaster, commemorating the Battle of Britain in 2015. During WWII, Peter Healey was an air gunner assigned to protect the aircraft from attacks from behind. His “office” was the tail turret. Peter volunteered for air crew at an RAF recruiting station in England in 1943 at the age of 19. He spent the first six months training as a pilot/navigator/bombaimer. He was informed of a shortage of air-gunners and re-mustered as an A/G trainee where his training was done in Palestine (now Israel) where men were “crewed up”. The training was completed in approximately six months flying in Wellington two engine bombers. The crews were sent to Foggia in southern Italy and joined 40 Squadron RAF #5 Group to assist the allies in pushing the Wehrmacht out of Italy. The RAF was, then, supplied with B24, four engine bombers doing troop support “ops”. The British operated at night, while the allies flew in daylight. In 1944, the RAF was supplied with the now famous Avro Lancaster bombers. An intense onemonth training program was provided and they were away on operations again. Peter noted that the losses in this theatre of operations were not as high as the European theatre. 40 Squadron attacked railway marshalling yards, tank and motorized troop concentrations plus some front line troop concentrations. Peter explained that the “Lanc” rear gun turrets were fitted with four synchronized .303 Browning machine-guns, firing at 1,500 rounds per minute. The

mid-upper top turret and the nose turret had the same guns. The firing pattern was set at 400 metres. The “Lanc” was extremely maneuverable such that the pilot could dive and turn (corkscrew) on instructions from the rear gunner to make the aiming of an enemy fighter more difficult. When the war ended in Europe, Peter and his buddies were ready for operations against Japan but the Pacific campaign ended before Peter left the Mediterranean theatre. Peter returned to civilian life in 1946.


Submitted by Heather Kirby Giving the gift of a donation on behalf of a family member, friend, teacher or coach is a wonderful way to express your appreciation while helping the community.  Kawartha Lakes Food Source has cards designed for those who want to make a donation as a gift.  The organization held their First Annual Art Competition for the featured design on the four-card series. Four local artists shared their time and talents. “It was interesting to see the variety that people produced and they are all effective in their own way,” said Judy Jackett, one of three judges of the competition and fellow artist.  The images featured food markets from around the world, the beauty of our backyard, the hope of horses, and whimsical garden creatures.   The judges agreed that Sarah Burt’s whimsical, pen and water color garden creatures were the winning images for the cards.  At the announcement earlier this month at Kawartha Lakes Food Source, the artists came together to celebrate their work.  “I feel surprised and grateful!  I was glad to donate the time to a cause that is so important,” said Sarah.   The cards featuring Sarah’s work will be available on April 1. Visit the Kawartha Lakes Food Source distribution centre (41 George Street West, Lindsay) or call 705-324-0707.

           The Kawartha Land Trust Family is growing with another newly protected property. Through a conservation easement agreement with landowner Mieke Schipper and family, the 100 acres on which the Gamiing Nature Centre operates is now protected in perpetuity. In 1984, the Schipper family purchased a 100acre abandoned farm on the west shore of Pigeon Lake. This area was first farmed in the mid-1800s, which proved to be a poor idea, since much of the Kawartha’s topography is composed primarily of sand and gravel with a very thin layer of topsoil. The first step in 1984 was to allow the land to revert to its natural state, as it would have been when Indigenous peoples lived there. With the guidance of local environmental organizations, planting stock provided by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, and the help of local scouting organizations, family, friends and other volunteers, hundreds of native trees were planted on the property. This beautiful piece of land has 30 acres of an ANSI (Area of Natural and Scientific Interest) and a provincially significant wetland. The Schippers have opened it up to the public, so the community can enjoy the cultural and natural habitat forever, no matter who owns the property. Mieke Schipper said, “Gamiing Nature Centre is located at this property and is committed to preserve all conditions as laid out in the conservation easement.” To celebrate this, the Schipper family, The Kawartha Land Trust and Gamiing Nature Centre held an event on Family Day to mark the occasion. The day included hiking the trails, identification walks, wild teas, warm food & drinks, campfire, bowl burning by the fire, snowman and fort building and Wildlife Tracking Games. According to Mieke Schipper, this past winter, Gamiing Nature Centre has seen an exponential growth in their outdoor education program under the

leadership of Cherianne Cybuksie. This jewel is located at 1884 Pigeon Lake Road, just south of Bobcaygeon. Follow Cherianne on FB to find more information and resources.

Since 2008, the number of deceased organ donors in Ontario has nearly doubled, increasing by 98 percent. In 2017, there were 347 deceased organ donors compared to 175 in 2008. But it’s more than just organs that can be donated. One tissue donor can enhance the lives of up to 75 people: eyes can restore sight; skin can help burn patients; bone can be used for joint replacements; heart valves can help patients with congenital heart disease; and tendons and ligaments can help people walk and run. The number of tissue donors climbed considerably as well, growing 102 percent to more than 2,100 donations in 2107. Today, 32 percent (nearly 4 million Ontarians) have registered their consent to organ and tissue donation. Over the last 10 years, the number of registered organ and tissue donors have grown by 126 percent. “Ontario’s success in organ donation and transplant is only possible because of the incredible donors and their families who make the generous and difficult decision to give the gift of life,” said Dr. Eric Hoskins, Ontario’s Minister of Health and Long Term Care. “Because of their gift, over 1,200 people were given a second chance at life in 2017. Register at and give hope to the 1,500 people waiting.”


Two in five Canadian adults report having one of the most common chronic diseases, which include heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer. Even more worrisome, some of these chronic conditions are starting to show up in our children. The Government of Canada is taking action to make it easier for Canadians to make healthier food choices. Poor diets – including those that are high in sodium, sugars, or saturated fat – are a primary risk factor for diseases such as cancer, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. The Minister of Health, the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor has announced that Health Canada will launch consultations on regulations for a new frontof-package nutrition symbol on food. This is part of Health Canada’s Healthy Eating Strategy. Every day, Canadians make hundreds of food choices, often in a matter of seconds, and the front of a food package is the first place they look for information. A front-of-package symbol will provide a clear visual cue that a food is high in nutrients of public health concern, such as sodium, sugars, or saturated fat. This symbol will complement the Nutrition Facts table on the back or side of the food package. In order to receive feedback from Canadians before making a final decision on the symbol that will appear on foods high in nutrients of public concern, Health Canada has launched consultations on the proposed front-of-package symbol.

Children Need More

By Kirk Winter

In a recent study, Statistics Canada painted a shocking portrait of the level of physical fitness of young people under the age of 14. The report shared that less than 14 percent of elementary-school-aged children get the 60 minutes a day of PA recommended by the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines, endorsed by the Government of Canada. The report also shared that almost one -third of all Canadian elementary school students are overweight or obese. Statistics Canada reported that children currently spend eight hours a day engaged in sedentary behaviour, typically with an electronic device, feeding the obesity crisis. Annie Kidder, Executive Director of People for Education based in Toronto, reported that only 45 percent of elementary schools in Ontario have a Physical and Health Education teacher on staff, and many of them are not teaching in their subject field. Kidder said that elementary teachers struggle daily to fit even 20 minutes of physical activity into their daily routine because the curriculum is overwhelming in its magnitude. When pressed for time, physical activity is put on the back burner, negatively impacting the students who are now going without. The Canadian Pediatric Association echoes the finding above stating that children 6to 12 years of age need at least 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity every day. The activities should offer short instruction times, flexible rules, free time to practice and improve skills, and focus on fun. Playing tag, soccer, baseball, gymnastics, skating and skiing are encouraged. As puberty approaches, martial arts, hiking and strength training with lighter weights can be added.

Sean Winter, a graduate from the Physical and Health Education program at Nipissing University, and finishing his last year in Faculty of Education, says, “All the current research indicates that allocating more time to PA will benefit the majority of students’ physical, emotional and mental health needs, while also improving academic focus, behaviour, and achievement. Adding time for PA has been proven to have no noteworthy negative outcomes and administrators and educators should have no apprehensions about devoting regular time to PA.” Winter adds, “PA has been proven to benefit mental health, something that one in five elementary children struggle with. PA can help manage and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders. According to the Canadian Psychological Association, for some students PA can be as effective as pharmaceutical treatments.” Annie Kidder summed up the issue pointedly when she stated, “We are doing really well getting marks up, but not so well on the health and well being front. We can do better.” We have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Let’s get those kids active again, and we will be glad we did.

The Kawartha Lakes Police Service is bringing in a new, innovative, digital approach to help those who are experiencing mental health issues. The Health IM program is specifically designed for use in law enforcement environments. It allows officers to screen an individual’s risk of harm to self, harm to others and failure to care for self, in keeping with the Mental Health Act.  An officer who is interacting with a member of the community in crisis can input data into the screening program through their mobile data terminal in the cruiser. The program provides the officer with an evaluation of risk in the three noted areas and will help an officer assess the individual’s needs. “It’s important because a large part of the good work our officers do each day relates in some way to mental health,” says Constable Dave Murtha. “Having a tool that helps an officer make better, informed decisions to help our community members will benefit everybody.” The officer inputs responses from the individual, caretakers, bystanders as well as their own observations. The system calculates the risk an individual may pose to themselves or others. Officers use these criteria to support their on-scene decision. “If an officer determines it is necessary to take the person in crisis to Cecilia Wasylyk RDH

hospital, the program shares the information obtained by the officer with mental health/medical professionals at Ross Memorial Hospital directly,” Murtha says. According to Statistics Canada, in 2012 approximately one in five contacts with police involved someone with a mental or substance use disorder. The manufacturer says police services that use the program have experienced 46 percent fewer apprehensions and reduced wait times at hospital. Every member of the Kawartha Lakes Police Service will be trained on the new technology in the near future.

When the provincial government chose the City of Kawartha Lakes to be one of the test sites for its Basic Income Project, local historians wondered about the history of economic hardship in this area, and how previous generations responded to the needs of their neighbours in times of hardship. Ian Mckechnie, a researcher at the Olde Gaol Museum, began to research the topic and was fascinated by what he discovered. During the Great Depression, when need overwhelmed all levels of government, local citizens under T. H. Stinson organized the Citizens Relief Association. Among their achievements was the establishment of a soup kitchen that operated at the Victoria Park Armories in 1931 to 1932. Thousands of people were fed and homeless men, better known as hobos, who travelled by train from one community to the next looking for work, did not have to turn to a life of crime to find appropriate sustenance. In the 1980s, there was an acute lack of affordable housing in the City of Kawartha Lakes. All three levels of government agreed that this was a pressing basic need, and millions of dollars worth of subsidized housing were built, largely in Lindsay’s East Ward. That housing stock is now being refreshed with a project in the old rail yards at the corner of Queen and Lindsay Street in Lindsay. Homelessness was once thought to be a big city issue only. Concerned citizens in the City of Kawartha Lakes began coming together to provide a homeless shelter for those in need, and out of this concern grew A Place Called Home. This facility exists to care for those who cannot find affordable housing on a shortterm basis. Many of the same people who pioneered this project are still involved three decades later, knowing their work is needed as much now as it ever was.

One of the things about aging that seniors fear most is cognitive decline that robs them of their memory and reasoning power. Fortunately, it is possible to help stave off dementia by keeping physically and intellectually active. In addition, while previous research has linked hearing loss with cognitive problems, a more recent study shows that hearing aids protect against cognitive decline. According to a study involving 100 individuals between the ages of 80 and 99, despite having varying degrees of hearing loss, those wearing hearing aids scored better on cognitive-function tests than those not wearing hearing aids. Because hearing loss is nearly universal among the over-80 set, their use of hearing aids is highly recommended. Even though we hear with our ears, the ability to understand what people are saying occurs in the hearing center of the brain. So when an uncorrected hearing loss causes diminished communication, it’s time to rediscover the benefits of healthy hearing and the wondrous hearing aids available today. Begin with a hearing test at our clinic and a consultation with one of our Audiologists. P.S. The use of hearing aids by hearing-impaired seniors helps them overcome their sense of isolation and promotes socializing that keeps them connected to others.

The Museum is hoping to put together a travelling display for the fall of 2018 that will be on display at church halls, schools and libraries right across the city. The Museum also hopes that those who work on the front line of poverty reduction become involved in this project in the planning stages sharing artifacts, experiences and photographs. There may even be a need for local artists to assist in producing the graphics that will compliment the research shared. The Museum is also looking for community sponsors to help underwrite some of the costs of preparing a show of this magnitude. Mr. Mckechnie hopes that this show can be another example of the local historical society becoming an agent for social change, and a body that not only documents the social activism of previous generations but encourages the next generation to become involved. Mckechnie can be reached at 705-324-3404 or by email at
