Dressing room Discrimination?

City arenas lack

appropriate change room facilities for girls playing on boys’ hockey teams TARA JEFFREY THE JOURNAL

W

hen Peyton Burgess steps onto the ice with the boys, the 12-year-old goaltender fits right in. But it’s a different story after the buzzer sounds. While her male teammates head to the dressing room at the Progressive Auto Sales Arena, Burgess is forced to change in the referees’ room, while her dad, Paul, stands outside the door to make sure no one walks in. “I’m just a hockey dad with a daughter who is trying to play at the highest level she can,” Burgess said, “and I’m really uneasy every time we have to go to that arena.” The longtime local hockey and goalie coach said the rink is the only one in Lambton County he’s aware of not equipped with alternate, or gender-neutral dressing rooms for female and transgender players. For girls playing on a boys’ team, whether in Sarnia or coming from another centre, there are no appropriate dressing rooms at Sarnia’s showcase arena, he said. “It happens all winter. I’ve seen girls come out of the Guest Services room,” said Burgess. “It’s tough when it’s your own kid standing there, saying, ‘Where do I go?’” Continued on 2

YOU’D NEVER KNOW it by looking at him, but seven-month-old Dean Olver has an important teaching assignment at Sarnia’s Sacred Heart School these days. Dean and his mom Sian Olver are participants in a classroom program called Roots of Empathy, which has been shown to reduce aggression and bullying among elementary school students.

Life goes on after an Alzheimer’s diagnosis

andy Greer knew something was wrong but couldn’t put his finger

on it. The veteran truck driver was forgetting how to do simple things, and it scared him. He confided in wife Mau-

reen about what was happening, and she agreed his behavior had changed. “Things were going wrong,” Maureen Greer said of the sequence of events that came to a head in June 2016. “I thought he had had a couple of strokes.” So began a barrage of testing and trips to doctor offices. Two months later, the cou-

ple landed at the door of the Alzheimer Society of Sarnia-Lambton. Greer was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, moderate dementia on a high-functioning scale that affected short-term memory. “I was forgetting. I’d end up not where I was supposed to be,” he said. “I couldn’t understand it but I could feel it.”

Just like that, his life changed. His driver licence was pulled, and the family breadwinner could no longer do a job he’d done for 40 of the couple’s 42-year marriage. “I thought it was the end of the world when I couldn’t do what I had done all my life,” he said. Continued on 3

Dressing: Continued from 1 “It seems kind of weird,” said Peyton Burgess, who recently attended ‘AAA’ and ‘AA’ Minor Bantam tryouts at the 20-yearold arena, which is owned and operated by the City of Sarnia. “I have to walk all the way around, through the back area where the Zamboni comes out — which is probably a health

and safety issue — to get to the referees’ room,” she said. Her father stressed arena staff are as accommodating as possible, and Sarnia Sting assistant GM Mark Glavin has opened up the players’ lounge for Peyton to change, when possible. The dressing room policy of the Sarnia Hockey Association, in accordance with the Ontario Hockey Federation, states that: “All players have the right to

Local

utilize the dressing room in accord with their gender identity and gender expression and that meets their individual needs.” It adds that, if, due to building constraints, such a dressing room is unavailable, “it is the responsibility of the Sarnia Hockey Association, with support from the Ontario Hockey Federation, to work in collaboration with the player to find an appropriate and equivalent changing area.”

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Rob Harwood, the city’s Parks and Recreation director, said there are no immediate plans to invest in new dressing rooms. “We are definitely doing what we can to accommodate everyone, and this is an ongoing problem at arenas across the country, especially in older buildings,” he said. Accommodations also have to be made at the Sarnia Arena, where staff ‘get creative’ to

make space available, including repurposing existing rooms for girls on boys’ teams, he said. “Typically, only one or two girls are playing on boys’ teams, at the most, so it doesn’t necessarily have to be a fullsized room.” Nevertheless, parents have complained makeshift change rooms lack showers, washrooms and other amenities available to boys. While the city is ‘empathetic’ to the needs of all players, it has more urgent needs like roof and air conditioning repairs, Harwood said. Sarnia Sting president Bill Abercrombie said the need for dressing room upgrades at the Progressive Auto Sales Arena were noting in the city’s own 2015 Arena Management study, which cited ‘major renovation to change rooms to provide dedicated showers’ as a priority. Chatham-Kent was embroiled in controversy earlier this year after girls playing out of the East Kent Memorial Arena were bumped from their dressing room to accommodate a boys AAA team. The girls were forced to change in a small room near the lobby, and then, an accessible washroom. After pressure mounted from parents and the South Kent Minor Hockey Association, the municipality agreed to build a new dressing room for the girls. Outgoing Sarnia Hockey Association Chair Mike Johnson said he’s seen an increase in the number of girls playing in boys’ leagues in recent years. “Which has made it challenging for arenas across the country,” he said. “The staff at PASA have been very accommodating… sometimes it depends on the ice rental situation and what rooms are available but they do make it work.”

Alzheimer’s Continued from 1 Encouraged by physician Dr. John O’Mahony, the couple found a helping hand at the Alzheimer Society, where they learned there is life after a dementia diagnosis. Peer support groups for both of the Greers have been a lifeline. “In group, I could talk with people who knew what I had to deal with,” said Randy Greer, who looks forward to the bi-monthly meetings. Maureen also found solace and help at the society. She attends peer group meetings with others whose loved ones are impacted by dementia. “It’s a safe place where you can share with other people on the journey,” she said. Their three adult children, two of whom live in Sarnia, are also part of the counselling process. Though he’ll never hit the highway again as a Class ‘A’ trucker, Randy can drive a car again, thanks to an innovative program at London’s Parkwood Hospital. He was able to take a driving test, accompanied by an instructor who also operates a set of controls. “He passed the test with flying colours,” Maureen said proudly. “The instructor said he’d done better than any who had ever taken the test before.” Randy also went from someone who “never took a pill” to someone

with six to eight medications. Like a sudden storm, the effects of Alzheimer disease are hard to predict. The causes are varied, and while it might progress rapidly in one person it will crawl along in another. Markers are forgetfulness and fatigue as the brain works overtime to compensate for the dementia. Desiree Barrett, a facilitator for the patient

support groups, said people are usually reluctance to come through the door, but once inside they build rapport. “There’s no judgment, this is a safe place,” Barrett said. Though there are more than 100 kinds of dementia, a concrete diagnosis can only be made when the brain is autopsied after death, she added. Aging communities like Sarnia-Lambton are

feeling the impact of dementia-related disease as baby boomers move into their senior years. Marie Marcy-Smids, fund development and communications coordinator for the Sarnia branch, said the organization provides holistic help for patients and families. The adage that it takes a village to raise a child is also true when it comes to caring for someone with dementia,

she said. “We as an agency are trying to be that village.” Funding for the Alzheimer Society comes through the province, but demand exceeds supply and the shortfall must be met through fundraising, such as the May 27 Alzheimer’s walk. Promoting programs is a double-edged sword, Marcy-Smids said. “We obviously need to expand.”

luewater Borderfest returns to Centennial Park this summer with a mix of big-name headliners and local acts. The three-day rock and country music festival in July will feature, among others, The Arkells, Drake White, The Guess Who and Honeymoon Suite. But heating up the stage for the headliners each night will be local artists, as well as a free Saturday afternoon show boasting all home-grown talent, including Polly Harris, Chad Cusack, Rebound Rocks, Brenda Mayer, Dave Grennan and Brad McLean. “Sarnia has pretty deep roots with local talent and we really wanted to let that grow,” said Mark Perrin, one of the committee members running the

festival. Perrin said the inaugural Borderfest last year was about getting the word out. “We did a good job at identifying ourselves as a large-scale music festival that’s bringing in the bigger bands and performers,” he said. Having Sarnia’s Eric Ethridge kicks off last year’s festival inspired the use of even more local opening acts, he said. “This year we said, ‘let’s do that every day.” About 5,000 people attended the first festival and about 40% were from the Sarnia area. To draw people from farther away you need big-ticket artists, he said. “The kind of attraction piece for that is the headliners.” The Arkells bring star power to Saturday’s concert. “We reached out and

Motorist ‘road diet’ a tasty turnaround for city’s cyclist move. “It’s about moving toward a point of critical mass, where ridership and the infrastructure supports cycling to the point where it becomes an accepted and respected mode of transportation,” cyclist Rachel Grondin told council. “This is a great proposal that should not be dismissed.” But others wanted the plan ditched to protect on-street parking and road safety. “We have always enjoyed riding our bikes up and down (Cathcart) Boulevard, simply because of the space it provides away from traffic,” said Donald Carey, who cited an 80-name petition opposing lanes on Cathcart. “Creating dedicated cycling lanes would only bring cyclists closer to the traffic, making it a less safe experience.” In voting 8-1 in support of the project, councillors acknowledged Sarnia has been slow to recognize the recreational and tourism potential of cycling. “I have cycled cities all across our country,” said Coun.

ity Hall has approved a plan to reduce vehicle traffic on Colborne Road from four to three lanes to create a safer north-south travel corridor for cyclists. The big change will see bike lanes painted on both sides of Colborne Road between the Highway 402 overpass and Cathcart Boulevard, with all on-street parking eliminated. Bike lanes will also extend north of Cathcart to Lakeshore, with parking removed on the west side only. This new Colborne Road biking corridor will also link up with Canatara Park to the west via Cathcart, and extend south of the highway along Capel and Russell streets as far as Maxwell Street, with some parking modifications along the way. City staff advocated for the vehicle “road diet,” saying experience elsewhere has shown it reduces accidents and has little impact on traffic flow.

Losing weight doesn’t have to mean spending tons of money NICOLE STRAMPEL

T

his is my goal: lose 100-plus pounds and do it with no surgery, no pills, no fad diets and no gym membership or personal trainer. And I’m getting close. In July of 2016 I was shocked to see how I looked in a photo my sister had taken. I’d been avoiding mirrors, and the person I saw in the photo that day looked much different than the perception I had of my own body. In my head, I was much smaller. In reality, my weight had reached an all-time high of 277.5 lbs. My knees hurt. I had no energy and laboured climbing stairs. I was 32 years old. At this pace, I thought, I won’t live to see my grandchildren, let alone play with them on the ground someday. The first thing I did was attend a free “Healthy Weights” course at the Rapids Family Health Team on Pontiac Drive. I began to pay atten-

tion to the types of food I was consuming. The course encouraged us to add small amounts of activity to the day and building on that. I started by walking with a friend twice a week. Our pace was slow, but it was a change from sitting on the couch. Over time, I built a small network of friends and we became motivation and accountability partners to each other. We dubbed the 15th of each month “weigh day” and would share our weight and measurement changes. In the first six months I lost 25 lbs.! In January of 2017 I added wearable technology. Tracking my distance, speed and heart rate was intriguing. I started walking five kilometres daily, with or without my walking buddy. Before long, we had enough courage to sign up for a 10 km walk/ race, and I came in first. In three months I’d lost another 25 lbs.! I pushed through cases of strep throat and

stomach flu and a child’s hospital stay, coming up with unique ways to achieve my step and calorie goals. It sounds funny, but I celebrated my one-year anniversary by completing a sprint triathlon. If you had told me at the start of this journey I’d swim 400 metres, bike 18 km and then run/ walk four km, I’d have thought, “So that’s how I’m going to die!” As I write this, I have lost more than 95 lbs. I have seven more pounds to go to achieve my ultimate goal of losing 102.5 lbs. by July 15. I have hit plateaus and failed at some short-term goals, but my big one is in sight, within grasp and pulling me forward. I take pride in the fact I’ve made this lifestyle change without paying for a gym membership or personal trainer, without protein powders or weight loss pills, and without fad diets or surgery. If you’ve reached a point where you’re ready to make a lifestyle change, I recommend setting short-term and long-term goals, and

Fear of cholera epidemic stalked the streets of Sarnia in 1866

A

dreadful image hangs today in the National Gallery of Canada. The painting, by Joseph Lagare, depicts the terrified citizens of Quebec City scurrying about the town’s market square in 1832. Thick, black smoke from burning smudge pots fills an apocalyptic sky. In the foreground, a man is seen falling to the ground. Near the centre, a horse-drawn wagon picks up the dead and dying. On the right, a group of Irish immigrants

follow a hearse. Titled, The Cholera Plague, the painting evokes the horror that struck Canada when the disease arrived in Canada in 1832. Over the next two years, as ships continued to arrive carrying infected passengers, more than 400 people would die in Halifax. Cholera is a disease of the intestines contracted

by ingesting contaminated food or water. In Sarnia in 1866, a panicked citizenry was afraid that cholera was returning – and the Canadian Observer blamed immigrants. “This class,” the newspaper told Sarnia readers, “as is well-known, always suffers from cholera, or any other form of epidemic disease that may prevail, to a greater extent than the settled inhabitants of a country.” Immigrants travelling from point to point suffered uncleanliness and a

lack of nourishing food. The previous summer, Europe had experienced an outbreak of the disease. It was believed to be water-borne and travelling from east to west. It was, the Observer said, a “foregone conclusion that the dreaded disease would appear in the Province during the coming summer.” In the spring of 1866, Sarnia’s fears were real. Six times since 1832 cholera had reached epidemic levels in Canada, killing nearly 20,000 people. In keeping with the

mood of the times, and along with blaming immigration, the newspaper pointed a finger at booze. The Observer expressed concern about “the inhabitants of all the crowded lanes and filthy alleys of all large cities and, in fact, everywhere squalor, poverty, and vice prevail, and especially among the haunts of intemperance.” Thirty-four years of contending with the disease had brought no significant improvement in the ability of Canadian doctors to cure it.

ever, some lessons had been learned in how to reduce its deadly impact. Fortunately, and despite the Observer’s fears, the Fourth Cholera Pandemic, which lasted from 1863 to 1875, caused only brief outbursts in Ontario cities. However, two months after the Observer story alarmed Sarnians, 5,596 people in the East End of London, England died from an outbreak of cholera. In the days before the medical advances we take for granted today, it was a frightening time.

Comment

Liberal worldview on abortion ignores life inside the womb Sir: The letter from C. M. Law (April 26) regarding mourning for aborted children is something to think about. The writer states that the old days and the particular cruelties associated with forced pregnancy are gone. Could it be that under this cloak of charity and compassion is barbarism and murder of the innocent who have no voice

over their bodies? Under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms there is no ruling at which time an abortion cannot be performed, so that could be

Loud and obnoxious road bullies Sir: Spring is here and summer on its way. I love this time of year. But here we are, frustrated by the noise and the lack of respect from drivers on our streets. We have to put up with the noise from loud and obnoxious vehicles and motorcycles speeding down Cathcart Boulevard. These “road bullies” drive so fast and ride the bumpers of drivers who respect the speed limit, which can be very intimidating. We also witness

dragging racing, sideby-side, from Christina to Colborne, right past a school zone. A request to the city engineer to post speed limit signs probably won’t stop the problem, and city police claim they don’t have the manpower. So we allow these “road bullies” to drive whatever speed they can get away with. Any suggestions out there? — Terry Lindsay Sarnia

why we have the monster magnification of embryos on protestors posters. Are these posters truth or fiction? Possibly the educators of our school children who want to teach them proper terminology could show them what happens during abortion. Some people view abortion as just removing a blob of tissue. Years ago

we didn’t know exactly what the fetus was, but with advanced educational enlightenment and ultrasound we can see an image of the baby inside. We know the heart starts beating at four to 10 weeks, and at 11 to 13 weeks arms, legs, fingers, toes, mouth, nose and ears appear. According to former abortion provider, Dr.

Kathi Aultman, the abortionist must count the body parts after each procedure. Scientific evidence indicates the fetus can kick and feel pain at 18 weeks. There is life inside the womb. A woman has a choice to make, but if she has compassion and wisdom she can make it before new life begins. I hope we can open our

hearts and minds and consider these facts regarding these helpless lives and change our liberal worldview on abortion. Life is special. Let us protect life and not destroy it. Let us give thanks to God our Father who is the author and giver of life. — Ann Allen Sarnia

Liberal’s summer job policy hypocritical Sir: I have been watching the summer job funding controversy unfold for the last few months. All that really seems to be happening from this policy decision by the Justin Trudeau Liberals is hypocrisy. Trudeau is saying that if groups want government funding for summer jobs they must not have explicit pro-life views. Canada has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Charter gives Canadians the right to expression, which includes the right to express disagreement with the government. Trudeau is using funding

to create summer anti-Kinder Morgan pipeline jobs under the guise of "free speech." Free speech is apparently great as long as it's speech that aligns with the Liberal worldview. Also, in 2017 Liberal MP Iqra Khalid granted $56,000 to a staunch pro-life group, Bio-Ethical Reform. This was not a legacy grant. Apparently it's a coin toss as to what actions the Liberals will take on their own policies. It’s said the summer jobs funding policy is based on protecting human rights. However, Trudeau gave funding to the Canadian Arab Federation. The CAF

had lost federal funding in 2009 for its anti-Semitic and pro-Hamas views. A federal judge upheld that cutting federal funding was reasonable. Trudeau also gave funding to the Anatolia Islamic Center. In 2013, the Imam at the center was videotaped saying the LGBT community was like cancer or AIDS and needed "special treatment." Liberal MP Kent Hehr called for the Center to lose funding. The Imam responsible is still employed there. Are abortion rights more important to the Trudeau Liberals then our Jewish

and LGBT communities? Canadian free speech is great if it agrees with Trudeau, but contrary opinions must remain silent? Liberal changes to the summer jobs program have caused denials to skyrocket from 126 in 2017 to over 1,560 this year. When you have to deny 1,400 groups your views probably aren't as accepted as you'd like to believe. Trudeau has shown nothing with this policy other then hypocrisy and a double standard. — R. D. McLaughlin Sarnia

Comment Liberal summer job attestation targets discriminatory activities

Sir: Letter writer Keith Patrick (May 10) referred to my earlier letter by stating, ‘Connecting active obstruction to women’s rights is laughable.’ Most Canadians think women’s rights and human rights are no laughing matter. Not all that long ago in Canada hundreds of women died annually from illegal abortions. The Liberal’s Summer Jobs criterion arose because some Canadian

organizations discriminated by refusing to hire gay kids for summer jobs, while others were hired to actively harass women by actively waving bloody placards in their faces at abortion clinics. The Liberals targeted these discriminatory activities, which extend far beyond mere ‘beliefs,’ with an Attestation asking people to respect Constitutional Charter Rights, which include gay, LGBTQ and women’s

reproductive rights. Mr. Patrick states the Liberal Attestation ‘insists you support abortion.’ This is false. The word ‘abortion’ is not mentioned. It asks to support the Constitutional right of women to make health decisions regarding their own bodies. Is it only the abortion procedure Mr. Patrick and his ilk oppose? Or is it women’s autonomous rights as well? That is where the real ‘slippery

slope’ Mr. Patrick alluded to is found. Mr. Patrick equated women’s reproductive rights to smoking and drinking alcohol, because they are also ‘legal.’ It’s a hollow comparison. People don’t line up outside convenience stores actively harassing and waving placards displaying bloodied, blackened lungs in the faces of those exercising their legal right to buy cigarettes.

But people have actively waved placards with bloodied illustrations while obstructing and screaming obscenities at women exercising their legal Constitutional rights at abortion clinics. Mr. Patrick wrote, ‘Not everyone drinks or smokes; what if government made it conditional to receive state benefits by everyone having to sign a form saying they support those activities?’ The flaw in Mr. Pat-

rick’s’ illogic is Canadians would sign forms supporting the right to partake in those activities whether they themselves partake or not. The critical difference lies not with those who only oppose the abortion procedure itself, but with those who also oppose women’s Constitutional rights to decide that issue for themselves. — Stanton Earle Sarnia

Now, let’s extend those bike lanes all the way to Maria Sir: Now that City Council has approved extending the bike lanes on Russell from Nelson to London Road, these lanes, for safety reasons, should now be continued to Maria. The seven car parking

spots on the west side of this section of Russell should be eliminated and replaced by a bike lane. The east side should have a bike lane for part of it and “sharrows” alongside the existing

parking spots. This action will not only make cycling safer but will also reduce a significant safety problem. Cars parked on the west side of Russell, opposite the hospital, make

it unduly hazardous for staff crossing over Russell from their parking lot to the hospital. The parked cars impede the view that drivers have of pedestrians crossing and vice versa. This situation will

be compounded by the increasing presence of cyclists. Add to this the steady stream of traffic exiting the hospital at this same crossing and you have an unacceptable traffic safety problem that should

not have been ignored for as long as it has. — Saorgus Mc Ginley Sarnia

Reproductive rights not protected Sir: In his May 3 letter, Stanton Earle accuses Marilyn Gladu of tap dancing around the truth. He then does a little tap dancing himself by claiming the Charter and Constitution of Canada uphold the reproductive rights of women. This is a myth regularly repeated by Liberals. It is based on the misinterpretation of the 1982 Supreme Court

decision in the case of the Crown versus the abortionist Henry Morgentaler. In its ruling, the court said the restrictions to access contained in the law at that time were unfair and so the law was struck down. The court did not declare abortion to be a Constitutional Right. In fact, the court recommended the law be rewritten. The govern-

According to data from the Lake Huron Coastal Centre, only 2% of Lake Huron’s natural dune grass habitat remains. That’s a concern, Gledhill said, because the plant serves as an important filter for water, a buffer against wind and water erosion, and a specialized habitat for at-risk species. “If you take dunes out you just have a cobble beach,” she said, “and that’s not good for wildlife or people.” Canatara is an important resting spot for species migrating north

west end of Canatara. Patti Ross, Sarnia’s manager of parks, forestry and horticulture, said it’s a good thing the grass is regenerating given how important it is to the health of the beach. She said the city is stepping up protection, primarily through educational signage. “We need to keep an eye on it,” Ross said. Signs explaining the importance of the plant will be going up shortly, and strategically placed security cameras are already in place. Ross said a barbecue located beside a pathway through the dune will be also be removed. “The benefits of the dunes far out way the benefits of the barbecue,” she said. Ross said most of Canatara’s people troubles occur in the north beach parking lot, but armour stone has helped stop vehicles from driving on off-limits areas.

A new home for Goodwill up next at commercial plaza

W

eeks after the first phase of commercial redevelopment ended at a central Sarnia property, a second phase is quickly taking shape. A ground breaking is expected by late June on a 17,000-square-foot building at 1249 London Rd. previously known as the Zeller’s Plaza. “We are ahead of where we thought we’d be,” says Rob Dawson, majority owner of property management and development company Lucror Property Investments. With the recent opening of the $5-million Tepperman’s furniture store, Lucror is pushing ahead with the next phase.

Goodwill Industries’ career centre will be the first tenant to take occupancy in phase two, a 17,000-square-foot building to be constructed on the existing parking lot between Tepperman’s and Giant Tiger. Until moving day in January, the career centre will continue to operate in the east side of the existing plaza, sais Goodwill CEO Kevin Smith. Goodwill recently closed an adjacent clearance centre that

will not be replaced, he added. “Our Wellington Street and Michigan Avenue stores continue to do well but the clearance centre is closed for good. We don’t have plans to expand our retail because of the increase in minimum wage,” Smith said. However, Goodwill is looking for a location for a new donations drop-off site. Meanwhile, Smith said the Goodwill career centre will occupy about one-third of Lucror’s new building. “We look forward to a brand new facility,” he said. “We very much want to stay at this site because it’s such a central hub for the community.” The career centre and connections program is considered a one-stopshop for employers and employees to find one

another. “It’s for everyone,” said Smith. “We offer career counselling, workshops to hone interview skills and improve resumes, and activity rooms for individuals with significant barriers to employment.” Dawson said that once the Goodwill career centre relocates to the new building the current location will be demolished to make room for more parking. He continues to look for additional tenants for the second phase building, he said, noting the design has changed several times to accommodate the needs of current tenants in the plaza. Originally, phase two was going to incorporate construction of two smaller buildings, but that’s been altered to one large one. The demolition of a portion of the east side will create more parking and open up an access route to Afton Drive for the first time, Dawson said. Since acquiring the prop-

Campaign launched to save Pathways swimming pool

S

JAKE ROMPHF THE JOURNAL

arnia’s only therapeutic swimming pool has been out of commission since December when the facility at Pathways Health Centre for Children was found to be leaking. The closure hasn’t been good for Noah Prior, a four-year-old Sarnia boy with autism and developmental delays. Regular therapy sessions done in the pool helped Noah increase his strength and walking abilities, said his father, Matthew Prior. “He loves the pool so much and he’s so much happier here.” The Priors were on hand last week when Pathways announced a capital campaign to save the pool for the 11,000 children, seniors and community members who use it each year. A long-term, sustainable fix will cost up to $1 million, but about $100,000 is needed in the short-term to get the pool up and running by September, said Pathways executive director Jenny Greensmith. “We’re experiencing the physical emptiness today, but this is a huge emptiness in the lives of the populations who really depend on it.” The Save the Pathways Pool campaign is targeting individuals as well as corporate donors, charities and government. It was thought that damage

in the piping of the 30-yearold saltwater pool was causing the leak. But recent pressure testing indicates it is actually coming from beneath the main drain. “This is not a game changer at this point,” Greensmith said. “We’re moving along with our plan.” The Priors hope the pool can be reopened to the community as soon as possible. They said they’ve seen firsthand how it helped Noah, who has a rare disorder called Coffin-Siris

Donations to help save the therapeutic swimming pool can be made at the Pathways website or via email at poolcampaign@pathwayscentre.org.

Artwalk a proud festival created by Sarnians for Sarnians

S

ixteen years after it began, Artwalk is not only a major event in its own right but also boasts a legacy of revitalization, job creation and community pride. This year’s Artwalk running June 1– 3 will offer more than 90 artisan and food vendors, two stages of free live music and a new tent to showcase emerging artists. “We’ve been here for 16 years because of a very committed group who wanted to have a thriving downtown full of people and businesses,” says festival president Nathan Colquhoun. “Artwalk’s founders wanted it to be something made by Sarnia people, for Sarnia people.” An outdoor festival that shut down traffic on Christina Street and brought as many as 25,000 people downtown over three days, also spawned the monthly First Fridays that continue to bring more people to the core for art, music, food and shopping. That in turn attracted new investment, both in small business and residential development. Since Artwalk began in 2002, the downtown has enjoyed a major renewal. “Although Artwalk only lasts the weekend, the results of the cultural cross-pollination are long

lead hands-on activities all weekend long. Workshop leaders include reps from Sarnia Speaks, Art Attack alumni making macramé hangings, painters and more. Sarnia-Lambton Artwalk is a non-profit organization that is able to host a free festival thanks to the county’s grant, strong sponsorship support and fundraisers, added Colquhoun. Two Art Attack events throughout the year help bring in money, as does the upcoming Restaurant Tour on Thursday, May 24. This year’s tour features 11 downtown eateries that provide a sampling or small dish to each participant. Tickets are $30 and available by visiting www.sarniaartwalk. com and clicking on the eventbrite link.

Arts Journal lasting and plain to see,” said Colquhoun. This year’s edition has a full roster of creative demos, music and special activities for the whole family. And it’s all free. Two stages will offer a diverse lineup of bands and performers, both local and from afar. This year’s entertainment includes The Wooden Sky, My Son the Hurricane, Harrow Fair, Spencer Burton, Robb Sharp & Lit’l Chicago, Skye Wallace, PUCE, Al Weiss Quartet, Rodney James and the Riot, Isabelle Robinson and much more. For a full entertainment schedule, see www. sarniaartwalk.com. One stage will be located outside The Refined Fool on Davis Street, while the second is in the Scotia Bank parking lot between Christina and Front streets. Beer gardens and food vendors will be nearby. New this year is a tent set up near the Scotia Bank parking lot to accommodate about 18 local artists, each with a small sampling of their work for sale. Colquhoun said Artwalk decided to add

the local artist showcase area because booth space costs $300 for the weekend, too expensive for an artist who might sell little or no product.

“We wanted to include the up-and-comers too,” he said. “One thing I’ve always liked about Artwalk is that it’s inclusive and there is so much for

people to see and do.” A Creative County grant made it possible to offer the showcase tent as well as a workshop area where local artists will

heartbroken by her husband’s revelation, McCarthy’s Deanna takes a hard look at her life and realizes what she regrets most is dropping out of college before completing her final year (she was pregnant and her husband decided she didn’t really need to finish). What better way to get her life back on track than to go back to school? And who better to do it with than her daughter! Now, this is a fairly ridiculous premise, but it‘s a credit to McCarthy’s innate likeability that the movie not only works but also is hilarious. Surrounded by a team of young actress-

it’s hard to see anyone but McCarthy when she’s on screen. Rudolph proves once again she is criminally underused and one of the funniest women in the game. The film features a mother and daughter who actually like each other, which is a welcome change from the standard movie duos riddled with complications. Take your mom, gather your girlfriends — this is a movie that celebrates female relationships and will make you cry laughing along the way.

es, McCarthy puts on a master class in physical comedy. Watching her character come into her own and discover the skills and talents she’s ignored so long is inspiring (I know it sounds cheesy but see the movie and tell me you weren’t just a little bit proud of her). Rounding out the cast are Maya Rudolph as McCarthy’s number one BFF, Matt Walsh as the horrible husband and Julie Bowen as a local realtor. The film is directed by McCarthy’s husband Ben Falcone and it’s his most successful effort yet (much better than the disappointing Tammy). Keep an eye out for his sweet cameo as an Uber driver. The young actresses rounding out McCarthy’s college experience are sweet but fairly forgettable. This isn’t their fault because

Residents turn over 51 rifles and handguns during amnesty

F

CATHY DOBSON THE JOURNAL

ifty-one guns were turned in during a month-long amnesty in Sarnia, a large haul compared to the 69 collected in London, a city five times as large. Sarnia’s amnesty in April coincided with others offered by the OPP and some municipal police services. It required residents to identify themselves and police would retrieve the guns for identification and disposal. The OPP say they collected 689 guns including 113 prohibited firearms. “An amnesty period will be repeated in Sarnia at some point,” says Const. Giovanni Sottosanti of Sarnia Police Services. “It is a lot of work and requires permission from the Ontario government,” he said. But it effectively took dozens of guns and 100 pounds of ammunition out of circulation. About 12 of the 51 guns turned into police came from a single family that wanted to dispose of firearms belonging to a deceased member, Sottosanti said. In total, 17 shotguns were handed over to city police, as well as 15 rifles, 12 handguns, six air rifles and one percussion cap muzzleloader firearm that likely dated to 1889 or earlier. “It was in bad shape and had no serial number,” he said. Antique guns that come into police possession through

an amnesty are generally not donated to museums or preserved, he said. The RCMP has a collection of guns in order to document the kinds of firearms in Canada but otherwise all guns are destroyed, Sottosanti said. A large number collected in Sarnia were rifles made by British manufacturer Lee-Enfield for use during the Second World War. They were the British Army’s standard rifle from 1895 to 1957 and many were “dumped” in the market afterward. Others were made in Cobourg Ont. by the H.W. Cooey Machine & Arms Company. Sottosanti said 32 of the 51 guns were non-restricted, along with 11 prohibited and one restricted weapon. Restricted guns, including some handguns and assault rifles, can be bought and sold in Canada with the appropriate Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL). “Generally, you need to be a collector or you could be a competitive shooter to have a restricted gun,” said Sottosanti. “But it’s hard to get the proper paperwork for one and the applicant will have his record checked as well as his mental health.” One of the prohibited firearms was a handgun reported stolen in 2005. Police were able to contact the original owner and an investigation is underway, Sottosanti said. Sarnia police will destroy all 51 of the firearms once checks

show they weren’t used to commit a crime. Police use amnesty periods to get as many guns off the streets as possible. It’s a helpful tool, especially after the Conservatives canceled the long-gun registry in 2012, Sottosanti said. “The registry served a great purpose but, because of the expense and politics around it, I understand why it had to go.” Now amnesty periods are used to get illegal guns out of circulation. “People argue criminals and thieves are not going to hand in any guns during an amnesty month,” said Sottosanti. “But the fact is these guns are now off the streets and there are 51 fewer guns that could be stolen in Sarnia.” He reminded residents an amnesty period is not necessary for them to contact police if they want to hand over unwanted firearms at any time. “Sometimes a family will acquire firearms through an estate or someone will decide they no longer want to hunt. In those cases, police will come and pick up the guns and destroy them,” he said. No one, he stressed, should attempt to bring a gun to the police station. The OPP have released the final tally collected by participating municipal police services like Sarnia. In total, 1,503 guns were voluntarily surrendered in non-OPP jurisdictions during April’s amnesty.

Historical Society seeks reward money

T

he Sarnia Historical Society has applied to Ontario’s Attorney General for an 82-year-old reward once offered for the capture of the notorious bank robber and murderer Norman (Red) Ryan. Ryan and a member of his gang were slain by Sarnia Police on May 23, 1936. The Ontario government offered the $1,000 reward following the murder of a man in Markham, Ont. three months earlier. The reward application

sent last week “on behalf of the citizens of Sarnia” would see the money used to erect a plaque to Jack Lewis, a Sarnia Police Constable who was shot and killed by Ryan during a liquor store holdup at 140 Christina St. Lewis was the first police fatality in Sarnia’s history to that time. Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey, Mayor Mike Bradley and Police Chief Phil Nelson supported the Historical Society’s application, in writing.

Ministry reviewing highway

O

ntario’s Transportation Ministry is reviewing whether a decommissioned commercial vehicle inspection station east of Sarnia could be used to improve traffic safety on westbound Highway 402. MPP Bob Bailey and Mayor Mike Bradley sent letters to the MTO in February letter offering suggestions on how to reduce collisions on ap-

proach to Sarnia and the Blue Water Bridge. Bailey has received confirmation the ministry is considering a suggestion to allow transport truck drivers to stop and prepare their necessary border paperwork at the closed inspection facility near Camlachie Road. Two serious truck accidents occurred on the approach last summer resulting in one death.

Marinaro and family holding community event to say thanks JAKE ROMPHF THE JOURNAL

A

Sarnia Olympian is holding a meetand-greet at the Point Edward Community Hall to thank the community for helping get him and his family to the PyeongChang games. Figure skater Michael Marinaro will be on hand to chat and sign autographs while footage is shown of him performing with pairs partner Kirsten Moore-Towers. Moore-Towers can’t attend the June 3 gathering because of prior commitments but her parents are coming to the party. Marinaro said one of the greatest things about the Olympics was having his family in South Korea, parents Albert and Bev and brothers Rob and Joe. “That was huge. I couldn’t imagine having

that moment without them,” he said. “Sharing that moment in the Canada House with Mom, Dad and both of my brothers was a very special moment for me that I’ll cherish the rest of my life.” Getting the family there was aided by a local crowdfunding effort. Albert Marinaro said the GoFundMe page started by one of his co-workers raised more than $20,000. “The whole community was behind Michael all the way. It felt like all of Sarnia was there with him,” he said. “We had worked at this our whole life and now that the chance came up — the family and the boys — we were all going to do whatever it took to get to the Olympics.” Michael Marinaro began skating at the Point Edward Skating Club at the age of four. By the time he was 10 he’d

said. “(It was) a lot of sacrifice for both my parents — financially, time, everything —and both my brothers driving me to and from Strathroy my whole childhood,” he

said. The road took him to Kitchener and then Montreal, where he and Moore-Towers now train. The pair, who teamed up in 2014, has won bronze at the Cana-

Students learn empathy from unlikely source – a baby

D

CATHY DOBSON THE JOURNAL

ean Olver is not yet seven months old but he’s already considered one of the best teachers at Sacred Heart School. With every coo and chuckle, with every little hand reached out to the six-year-olds in Mary Jo Cocarell’s Grade 1 class, baby Dean offers instruction in what some regard as life’s most important lesson. It’s called emotional literacy, says Sacred Heart principal Bill Nelson. And it goes a long way to stop bullying and create empathy toward others. The program is called Roots of Empathy and its lessons stay with students for life, says Cocarell. “By bringing a mother and her baby into the classroom, I see the students learn to be more patient with one another. They approach problems differently and think about what it’s like to be in the other person’s shoes.” Ten years ago, she and Nelson were turned onto the program through a book by Roots of Empathy creator and Toronto educator Mary Gordon. In “Roots of Empathy: Changing the World Child by Child,” Gordon writes about fostering attachment, authentic communication and social inclusion. She cites story after story about schoolyard bullies transformed into supportive classmates. In 2008, Cocarell and Nel-

son were working at St. Joseph School in Corunna, where they introduced Roots of Empathy to Lambton and Kent counties. Kim Jackson, a Lambton College employee, was the first instructor to receive Roots of Empathy training and is now a mentor and key point person locally.

“It does make a difference. I’ve seen it,” said Jackson. “It works because children get to see the whole dance between baby and parent. “They see that emotions can be recognized even if there are no words exchanged. They begin to notice queues like facial expressions and body language

and learn to tune into relationships.” This school year, 50 babies and their moms are visiting 50 different classrooms each month in Sarnia-Lambton and Chatham-Kent in both the Catholic and public school systems. About 90% of the program

Continued from 26 “I think it’s just genius,” says Mary Ann Hucker, the Roots of Empathy facilitator in Cocarell’s class. “Mary Gordon realized that, although you are born with empathy, if you don’t feel it or see it, you lose it,” said Hucker. “You become less sensitized.” Once a month, the children in Cocarell’s Grade 1 class spend 30 minutes with baby Dean and his mom Sian Olver. Hucker facilitates, sticking exactly with Gordon’s lesson plans. The children form a circle and greet Dean, who is a smiley, so-

cial baby. He shows the kids how he loves to play with his mom, chatter with her and respond to her voice. Each child has witnessed the connection between mother and child since first meeting Dean when he was a few weeks old. “The students learn to understand the baby’s feelings and those of the mother,” said principal Nelson. “The hope is that when they see the mother-child connection, and see it grow, they think about their own feelings and how others feel. “I see it working in the class-

rooms and on the schoolyard,” Nelson said. “There’s a strong anti-bullying message. I ask an aggressive student if they would act like that with the baby. They say no, and I ask, “Then why would you act like that with your friends?”’ Roots of Empathy in Sarnia-Lambton and Chatham-Kent has a steady stream of new babies and moms asking to be a part of the program. “Parents want it. Teachers ask for it, and the students love it,” Hucker said. Volunteers require four days of Roots of Empathy training,

It raised $3,000 last year and the goal is to surpass that, said coordinator Whitney Simpson. “Sarnia Speaks really brings awareness to mental health,” she said. “It’s been something that has helped a lot of people talk about mental health and really let people know that (others) care.” St. Clair Child and Youth provides supportive programs for children and families and “ is one of the biggest outlets for helping people in the community,” Simpson said.

teams play across two divisions, up from eight teams last year, while advancing the goals that Shaw strived for, she added. “It just really continues the conversation and continues to bring awareness to the issue. Hopefully, one day Sarnia will have the appropriate resources.” Each team is allowed eight players and a goalie,

with a minimum of two females per team. The tournament has prizes, a skills competition and features a Sarnia Speaks presentation from the “I’m 1 in 5” movement leader, Paulie O’Byrne. Kim Shaw, Stephanie’s mother, said Sarnia needs more resources to help young people who are struggling, but things are changing. “They have been in the

last couple years because people are talking. I think that’s the main goal,” she said. “There is so much out there for mental health that needs to be changed. It touches more people than you know.” Shaw said the support for her and the tournament has been tremendous. “I don’t know what I would do without the

people in this community, because they’ve just been fabulous.” Anyone in distress can call the Lambton Mental Health Service Distress Line, available 24/7 including holidays, at 519-336-3445, or the Lambton Mental Health Crisis Service at 1-800307-4319.

teammates who stood with me day in and day out.” Kyrou, 20, was chosen by the Sting in the second round of the 2014 draft and named captain prior to the 2017-18 campaign. He accumulated 290 points in 250 games during his four-year

tenure including 99 goals and a franchise record 191 assists. This season Kyrou also won gold with Canada at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship. The Red Tilson Trophy, voted on by writers and broadcasters, is the most prestigious individual award presented by the OHL.
