BRANTFORD — OPP say they have dismantled four organized crime networks in Southern Ontario after an eight month investigation into firearms and drug trafficking. On March 9, police executed a total of 11 search warrants, including 4 in Brantford and others in London, Ancaster, Paris, St. Thomas, Oakland and Barrie. Investigators from the Brantford Police Service including members of BPS Emergency Response Team (ERT), K-9 Unit, Street Crime Unit and the Criminal Intelligence Unit were all involved in the successful execution of the Project Weaver search warrants issued in Brantford. Police seized a total of 31 firearms, 81 grenades and two grenade launchers, 22 other prohibited devices and 3 explosive projectiles. A large quantity of drugs was also seized including 10.85 kilograms of cocaine, 36 pounds of psilocybin and 715 grams of MDMA. Illegal cannabis products including 216 pounds of illegal cannabis, five pounds of hash and more than $10,000 in other

Two grenade launchers and 81 grenades were just part of a weapons cache seized by police in March as part of a province-wide organized crime investigation that shut down four organized crime OPP networks dealing in weapons, drugs and illegal cannabis.

illegal cannabis products were seized. An additional $127,757 in Canadian Currency and $2,106 in US currency along with eight vehicles were confiscated by police as part of the investigation. A total of 10 people have been charged with 268 offences including two men from Brantford. Jayme Hill, 31, of Brantford was arrested and remanded into police custody. He is facing 23 charges including: four counts of trafficking cocaine, three counts of possession of a firearm, three counts of weapons trafficking, and possession of cannabis for

the purposes of distribution. Brandon Spaulding, 31, also of Brantford is facing a total of 50 charges including two counts of possession of explosives, 12 counts of weapons trafficking, 11 counts of possession of a firearm, six counts of possession of a prohibited device, and two counts of trafficking cocaine. Ryan Daigneault, 44 of London, Daniel Bell, 33 of St. Thomas; Daniel Boris, 42, of Strathroy; Cindy Klassen, 35, of St. Thomas; Stacey Scaman, 40, of London; Micheal Caron, 47, of London, Alicia Lewis-Haynes, 36,

of Paris; and Sean Sutherland, 32, of Ancaster were also arrested as part of Project Weaver and are facing an additional 195 charges for weapons and drug trafficking. The OPP Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau, Biker Enforcement Unit and Provincial Weapons Enforcement Unit along with assistance from the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service say they worked together in the investigation, dubbed Project Weaver. The four networks included members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club in the London area

responsible for trafficking cocaine in large quantities; a criminal network trafficking firearms and cannabis in the London area; a criminal network responsible for trafficking cocaine and firearms in the Brantford area; and a criminal network engaged in trafficking offensive weapons, explosive devices and cocaine in Brantford including grenades and a grenade launcher. Police say the explosives are not from the Canadian Military and they are confident they have identified the source. Police are continuing to identify the sources of the firearms and say some originated domestically in Canada and some have an origin in the United States. "Project WEAVER has revealed the availability of truly alarming offensive weapons and firearms, which compromise the safety of the citizens of Ontario. It is imperative that law enforcement continue the fight against illegal firearms and those who choose to engage in their trafficking. The OPP is committed to a safe and secure Ontario and this investigation has prevented numerous illegal firearms, weapons and large quantities of drugs from reaching our communities,” said OPP Commissioner Thomas Carrique.

Retail cannabis license applications coming April 7 DONNA DURIC

donna@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

Applications for permits to sell retail cannabis on Six Nations will be available April 7. The applications come as the Six Nations Cannabis Commission and Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council finalize and approve cannabis regulations on the territory. The announcement came during a virtual community meeting held via SNGR’s Facebook page, with some community members expressing opposition to the commission and its regulations. A cannabis law was first passed on Six Nations in 2019 shortly after the commission was created. In early 2020, right before the Covid pandemic resulted in worldwide shutdowns, a series of community meetings resulted in revisions to the law and the drafting of regulations for a cannabis industry here on Six Nations. Kim Thomas, who has led the legal work for the commission, said the regulations allow Six Nations to exert jurisdiction over cannabis on the territory to the exclusion of federal or provincial laws. “Six Nations has right to regulate and control cannabis,” she said. Thomas said the commission aims to create

regulations that protect the health and safety of Six Nations people, to exert jurisdiction over the cannabis industry, to promote fiscal self-sufficiency and to bring economic benefits from the industry to Six Nations people. The commission answers to SNGR Elected Council, which approved amendments to the Six Nations Cannabis Law in late February, the meeting heard. The regulations – which looks at issuing licenses, ensuring compliance with the Cannabis Control Law, inspections, testing, and import and export control – is almost finalized. Thomas explained that the commission underwent numerous changes last year. Two new commission members have been appointed and the commission incorporated to protect individual commission and elected council members from personal legal liability. The commission and SNGR will protect local retailers and growers if they face legal challenges, she said. Some community members were concerned that retail sales would be taxed under the regulations but Thomas said all revenues earned from permit holders will be tax exempt. The regulations also spell out protocols for testing to “ensure production standards are

appropriate” and that cannabis products are free from mould, chemical or bacterial contamination. Six Nations is expected to have an on-reserve testing facility by next year and products will be affixed with a stamp noting they’ve met Six Nations production standards, the meeting heard. The commission is currently processing manufacturing license applications. Elected Chief Mark Hill said the community cited health and safety as an industry priority during last year’s focus groups. “Cannabis has always been here,” he said. “We need to protect the health and safety (of community members).” Numerous people expressed concern with the regulations during the meeting, with one person asking what council would do if the community refused to accept the regulations of Six Nations Cannabis Law. Elected Chief Hill said the community needs to come together to work on the regulations. There’s also the risk of growers and retailers remaining in an “illegal bubble” if the industry is not regulated, said Thomas. “We’ve seen what happens when it’s unregulated and it’s not good,” she said, noting that it creates a climate for organized crime, with no guaran-

tees of a safe product. “Six Nations Police have confirmed (cannabis) products laced with other substances. There have been fatalities in the community. That’s been one of the key concerns of the community. They want to ensure health and safety with the cannabis industry. The only way to do that is with regulation. Six Nations wants to stand on its inherent rights for jurisdiction to regulate this economy. If we do not regulate the industry at all – there is nothing to protect our consumers coming onto the territory to purchase product.” She said the Six Nations testing facility will be on par with other Health Canada-approved cannabis testing facilities. “There’s going to be people in any industry that are not going to follow the rules,” said Thomas. “We’re hoping that the majority will.” She said those who choose not to follow the law or regulations “will become an enforcement issue that will be up to council to address. If we’re self-regulating we have a greater likelihood of getting our people to follow that law. We’re hoping the majority (will follow).” Another major complaint was the community contribution with some calling it a “tax” asking why businesses are being “forced” to provide the

contribution. “We don’t like the word tax,” said Thomas. “It’s always been framed as a community contribution,” she said, that speaks to the traditional Haudenosaunee value of giving back to the community for the people’s benefit. Elected Chief Hill assured the community they did not want to see Six Nations Police working against the community when it comes to cannabis. “The last thing we need to do is stay divided.”

Thomas also called for unity. “I hope I live to see what we can accomplish when we start working together instead of working against each other. Six Nations is a serious threat to Ontario and Canada. Their greatest weapon is division of our people. If we can stop getting in our own way there will be no stopping what we can do.” A financial model of the cannabis industry is also expected to be finalized and released publicly.

“Of course it’s hard. It’s supposed to be hard. The hard is what makes it great.” That famous phrase, uttered by the inimitable Jimmy Dugan in the iconic baseball movie A League of Their Own, is Carey-Leigh Vyse’s favourite quote. And for good reason. The incredibly talented, inspiring and award-winning professional softball player never gave up, despite numerous challenges along her journey becoming the first Indigenous female softball player to join a national team in Canada in 2011. Her softball career took her all over the world and taught her numerous life lessons that she imparted to listeners of the fourth installment of the CommUNITY Wellness Series on Saturday via Zoom. The accomplished athlete, mother and elementary school teacher shared her experiences

with the hope that she can be a positive role model for young people on Six Nations. First and foremost, one has to dream. And dream big, she said. Ever since Vyse was four years old, hitting that little teeball, she dreamed of becoming a professional softball player. Those dreams came true in 2011 when she first clinched a spot with the Canada junior softball team. Since then, she secured spots on first base and third base with the senior women’s team, traveling the world representing Six Nations, teaching others about the culture, all while getting a degree in social work and education, becoming a mother and landing a full-time job as a teacher at Jamieson Elementary School. She has a fire inside her that won’t quit. “It helps to know that world class coaches believed in me,” says Vyse. “If they believed in me, I should believe in myself. Believing in yourself is a huge thing.”

Vyse, who is Cayuga, deer clan, also had parents who believed in her. “When I would play softball, I would wear two braids every time,” she said, one in front and one behind. The main reason was to keep her hair out of her face to see the ball, but it was also symbolic. The braid in the front represented her mom, telling her everything was going to be okay. And the braid in the back represented her dad, telling her he always has her back. Vyse carved out quite a name for herself during her years active in softball, becoming the first Indigenous woman in Canada to be named to the senior women’s national softball team in 2012. “I was very humbled,” she said. She took a year off in 2013 to have a baby but sprang right back into the game, becoming the first-ever mother to be on the national team. Since then, other female players drew inspiration from her and continued to play for the national team after

giving birth. Vyse faced challenge after challenge during the past decade – being an athlete, juggling motherhood with post-secondary schooling, losing her baby sister at the age of 18, and being cast as an alternate during the PanAm Games in 2015. She never quit, though. “The comeback is always stronger than the setback,” she said. Everybody will face challenges in life but you need to have an inner fire in all aspects of life when going after what you want, she said. “My thing is, I’m trying to teach my children not to make any excuses. If one way doesn’t work, find another. Being aboriginal, we as people are faced with challenges, especially in the softball world, there’s not a whole lot of Indigenous athletes. We’re slowly trying to change that. We’re trying to bring up softball in Indigenous communities. That’s one of my goals in the future.” As the only Indigenous player on Team Canada, Vyse strived to be a posi-

tive representative of Six Nations and for Indigenous people as a whole. “My goal was to show the world that we are capable of far more than anyone wants to believe. Anytime I stepped on that field, I strived to make my community proud.” She’s also learned to be a positive thinker. “You cannot be walking around with negative thoughts and expect a positive outcome in your life. There’s always something to be thankful for.” She said it’s “very draining” to think negatively and ask “why is this happening to me” and encourages people to think instead: “this is happening for a reason

and good things will come out of this. It will allow us to succeed.” Softball wasn’t just a game to her. It taught her life lessons: finishing your work, not making excuses, and having that drive to create a secure future for herself and her family. She put that attitude toward her schooling. “I wanted to get good grades. I wanted to make my professors proud. I worked hard at that. Because of that, I was able to become a permanent teacher here on Six Nations, which makes me very happy.” Vyse encourages youth to never give up. “I hope to read your success story someday.”

Class Environmental Assessment

The Study

The County of Brant has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study for wastewater servicing upgrades required in the community of St. George to provide long-term and sustainable wastewater treatment capacity for proposed development in the settlement area. The Process The Class EA study has been completed in accordance with the requirements of Schedule C projects of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (Municipal Engineers Association, October 2000 as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015). Alternative wastewater servicing solutions and preliminary servicing concepts were identified and evaluated as part of the study. Measures to alleviate any adverse effects that may result from the construction of the proposed works have been recommended. The preferred wastewater servicing concept recommends expansion of the existing St. George Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) to 3,900 m3/d with the existing outfall location and expanding aerobic sludge digestion on-site with continued off-site dewatering of biosolids at the Paris WPCP. The Class EA Environmental Study Report (ESR), detailing the planning process, findings, and recommendations for the study will be available for public review from April 8 to May 24, 2021 at the following locations, but due to COVID-19 call 519.44BRANT (519.442.7268), 1.855.44BRANT for an appointment: • County of Brant Administration Office, 26 Park Avenue, Burford • Paris Customer Service Office, 66 Grand River Street North, Paris The ESR and the Notice of Study Completion will also be available for viewing on the County of Brant’s website, www.brant.ca/plans from April 8, 2021.

Indigenous women and Two Spirit people need support when leaving prison By Tenzin Butsang and Karen Lawford We're all aware of how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting our health and wellness — but why isn't more attention being paid to the relationship between COVID-19 and the criminal justice system, specifically how it's impacting Indigenous women, transgender and Two-Spirit people. The start of the pandemic came with the release of more than 2,300 people from jails across Ontario. Since then, numerous frontline workers and community organizations have called upon the Ontario government to ensure that the people being released have co-ordinated plans and supports in place. Unfortunately, the government continues to neglect those calls, inadvertently placing all released inmates at risk of COVID-19 infection, exploitation and even death.

Kevin Walby, an associate professor of criminal justice at the University of Winnipeg, said it's like the provincial government just ``gave up'' when it comes to protecting the health of inmates and the broader population. A failure to follow through We have witnessed how the Ontario government has failed to follow through on their promises to end violence against Indigenous people. As a doctoral student who has volunteered with women and youth in and out of prisons, and an Anishinaabe midwife and assistant professor, we have heard first-hand how dire this crisis is. Staff at Thunder Woman Healing Lodge Society have told us that they've waited more than eight hours for women scheduled to be released from the Vanier Centre for Women in Milton, Ont., and that some were released as

late as 10:30 p.m. with no access to transportation or accommodation. The 2019 National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) highlighted how Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA people leaving prison can become entrapped in a cycle of incarceration. They are often victimized by traffickers who use the prison system to target, lure and exploit those who don't have access to housing or transportation. Despite the province's 2020 commitment to respond to the national inquiry's Calls for Justice, it continues to release Indigenous women into precarious situations without resources for a safe passage to their families or communities. To release anyone, particularly Indigenous women, transgender, and Two-Spirit individuals

this way is irresponsible, dangerous and does not demonstrate a commitment to reconciliation. Doing nothing has consequences One tragic example of the consequences of these systemic failures is the death of Kimberly Squirrel. On Jan. 23, 2021, Squirrel was found frozen to death in Saskatoon just three days after being released from a provincial correctional facility; no one in her family was notified of her release and her death was entirely preventable. Indigenous transgender and Two-Spirit people have long experienced sexist, transphobic and racist discrimination at the hands of the Canadian prison system. The disproportionate social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on transgender and Two-Spirit communities further highlights the importance of providing supports upon release.

It is only a matter of time before someone else is harmed — or even killed — as a direct result of the provincial government's inefficiency and disregard for implementing appropriate measures for the safe release of Indigenous women, transgender and Two-Spirit people. Enough is enough The urgency of these issues is further underscored by COVID-19 and its disproportionate impact on Indigenous communities. Without re-entry plans, adequate safety measures and communication in place, individuals are released into precarious circumstances. Without access to accommodation or transportation, they may be unable to safely self-isolate to prevent the spread of the virus. In an open letter to the Ministry of the Solicitor General, we — as part of a collective of community members, Elders, Healers, front-line workers, re-

A big year for Six Nations actor, Gary Farmer JIM WINDLE

jim@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

SIX NATIONS — Gary Dale Farmer was born June 12, 1953, at the old Lady Willingdon hospital in downtown Ohsweken to Shirley (nee Fraser) and Ronald Orval Farmer. He was whisked off to Texas with the family soon thereafter following his father’s work with the U.S. Army Core of Engineers, and later they moved

to Buffalo. But Gary, the oldest in the family, always retained his close connection with Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. “Ohsweken is my home and I visit it as often as possible,” says the veteran actor, now living in New Mexico. He has a 45-year career as an actor and has graced the screen with some of Hollywood’s biggest names. To date, his highest acclaims are from his 1998 role as “Nobody”, in the cult

classic western, Dead Man alongside Johnny Depp. Acclaimed writer/director Jim Jarmusch, talked about his choice of Farmer for that role.   “When I write I usually have someone in mind,” says the award-winning screenwriter. “I saw Gary’s work in other films and I wrote the part with him in mind.” Farmer’s role is of a wisecracking spirit guide to Depp as he makes his way through a kind of purgatory

Notice of Project 2021 Highway 3 Jarvis – Sandusk and Stoney Creek Bridges The Ministry of Transportation has awarded Contract 2020-3034 to McLean Taylor Construction Ltd. for the structural rehabilitation work at the Sandusk Creek Bridge on Highway 6, the Sandusk Creek Bridge on Highway 3 and the Stoney Creek Bridge on Highway 3. Highway 6 Sandusk Creek Bridge rehabilitation was completed in 2020. Work for the 2021 construction season will include a full closure of Highway 3 at the Stoney Creek Bridge with implementation of detour route using local roads and single lane closures with Temporary Traffic Signals at the Sandusk Creek Bridge.

Six Nations Actor Gary Farmer is having a breakout year.

after shooting and killing a man in self-defense. It is filmed in black and white and has the look of a classic 1950’s western, except the traditional roles are reversed. Depp is a soft, bumbling white man from the east on his first encounter with the hard and wild west. Farmer’s character teaches Depp in his understanding of life and death.  Dead Man was nominated for the best foreign film in the European Oscars with Farmer winning best-supporting-actor honours.  “For some reason, Jim couldn’t make it to the awards show in Germany so Johnny and I went,” recalls Farmer. “We spent several days just walking around Berlin looking for the best wienerchnitzel in Germany.”  The role of “Nobody” was later reprised in the Jarmusch film, “Ghost Dog the way of the Samurai”.  In Dead Man, he appeared as the drifting Indigenous spirit guide who thinks Depp is the

reincarnation of the poet, William Blake. He appears with stars Billy Bob Thornton, Iggy Pop, Crispin Glover, John Hurt, Michael Wincott, Lance Henriksen, Gabriel Byrne, Mili Avital and Robert Mitchum, in this one.  The raw and iconic musical score for the film was done by Neil Young with one guitar and an amp set up in a hastily converted warehouse.  “I think I saw Neil and Crazy Horse, maybe 30 times,” says Farmer. “I’m a big fan. Once I was standing backstage watching and I noticed this little guy standing beside me, watching too. It was Bob Dylan.” In Powwow Highway he worked alongside fellow Six Nations actor Graham Greene, with another Six Nations contributor to the film, Robbie Robertson, providing the soundtrack. Something a lot of people do not know about Johnny Depp is that he is a very accomplished blues guitarist in his own right, and Farmer got to jam with

SUBMITTED

him a few times during the filming of Dead Man. “After the shoot was over, I held what was kind of a cast and crew party at some hall. Johnny pulled out a silver dobro,” recalls Farmer. “I have been playing blues harp for my whole life, so I pulled out my harmonica and we jammed along with other cast and crew who could play. Johnny jammed on the drums as well. It was great.” In a recent interview with Jim Jarmusch, he talked about the movie and the relationship he developed with Farmer. Jarmusch, who does a great Gary Farmer impersonation, by the way, tells of his first meeting with Farmer at his Canadian home in the bush, totally off the grid. He came to talk with Gary about the film. They immediately hit it off and have been good friends ever since. Dead Man was nominated for best foreign film in the European version of the Oscars, and is now

Gary Farmer and the Resident Alien JIM WINDLE

jim@tworowtimes.com

TWO ROW TIMES

The great Gary Farmer, stars in a new series on CTV, Resident Alien, which has been renewed for a second season.

on YouTube in its entirety. Farmer was nominated as best supporting actor for his work. In other work, Farmer portrayed Cowboy Dashee in the Robert Redford - produced thriller, The Dark Wind in 1991. He also starred with Corey Feldman and Corey Haim in the drama Blown Away (1993). Lou Diamond Phillips cast Gary in his directorial debut Sioux City (1994). Earnest R. Dickerson cast him in the horror classic, Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight (1995) with Billy Zane in which Gary plays a small-town deputy. In what is to date his biggest movie, Frank Oz cast him alongside Marlon Brando and Robert DeNiro in the 2001 movie, The Score.  But that certainly does not represent his entire 45-year acting career. In fact, his longevity may well be his best agent as new job offers are coming in much more regularly than in the beginning.  “It was hard to be a Native actor back then,” he said. “I was only getting a good role offer every six or seven years. But now, things are a lot different,” when it comes to how Natives and native culture is being depicted. At first, he was taking small bit-roles in movies like Police Academy, The Believers with Martin Sheen. He appears with Forest Whitaker in the gangster movie, The Big

Town, with Dillon and Tommy Lee Jones. Earlier, he starred in the film, Powwow Highway, which got many high accolades from important people in the industry and still does. In the George Harrison productions, Powwow Highway, Farmer worked alongside fellow Six Nations actor Graham Greene. Farmer appears with another Six Nations contributor to the film, Robbie Robertson, doing the soundtrack. International Film Critic, Roger Ebert, called Gary Farmer's performance "... one of the most wholly convincing I’ve seen…” When he is without film, TV, or theatre projects, Farmer creates by writing scripts, producing short films, as well as encouraging Indigenous school kids in and around his New Mexico home with personal appearances and lectures.  Although very busy these days, Farmer promises to do everything he can to come home for Bread and Cheese Day, known in the white world as Victoria Day. “Because of COVID restrictions, and schedules, I haven’t been home for a year. That’s the longest I’ve been away,” he says.  When he returned to Six Nations a little more than a year ago he ran an acting camp for Six Nations talent while here. Through these camps, he is able to help other Native actors and writers develop their chops.

Farmer is also a contributing writer with the Two Row Times, when he has time. “I gotta keep the water flowing,” he says about his creativity. “You know, keep that fire burning. I have been self-employed since 1975 and I’ve found that the longer I live, the better my roles are getting.” It takes both talent and tenacity, to be successful in anything and Gary Farmer has already proven he has both.   His latest role in Sci-fi TV’s Resident Alien has him and his small community dealing with an alien whose mission is to kill everyone on earth. Problem is, through his interaction with Native people and small-town citizens, he learns the ropes of what it really is to be human. The show has been renewed for at least 18 more episodes and will offer him more scenes as they focus a lot on Indigenous wisdom to help the Alien discover that humans are in fact worthy enough not to be exterminated.    “I was really happy about that,” Farmer told Two Row Times, “I know that next season will be shot on a reservation in Vancouver, so there will be a lot of Native content as the Alien learns about humanity from an Indigenous perspective.”  “Vancouver has become like, Hollywood North,” says Farmer. “When we started shooting Resident Alien, there were 89 other

SUBMITTED

productions being shot in or around Vancouver at the same time.” Farmer also carries the role of “Totillicum” in the 2020 production of “First Cow”, a drama about the impact made by the introduction of the First Cow in the west. It’s not what you might think, and takes a few twists. He has also directed a few projects, including an episode of Forever Knight TV series, and an episode of 'Father Figure' (1992). He plays the role of Robert Spottedbird in the 2020 release of the film, Cowboys, starring Steve Zahn, Jillian Bell and Sasha Knight. In the 2020 film, The Dark Divide, Farmer plays a character only known as Densmore in this contemporary journey of self-discovery. It looks like it’s going to be a very busy next couple of years for Farmer. Along with shooting more Resident Alien, he will be heading to Spain to take part in a BBC historical series about the real taming of the west.  After this long in the business, Farmer says bigger roles are starting to come for the actor as his resume and travel log fill with larger and larger parts being offered. All the while, he is still the same Gary Farmer you might meet walking around in downtown Ohsweken, any day of the week.

VANCOUVER - Veteran Six Nations’ actor, Gary Farmer, has a new gig. In his latest television series, “Resident Alien” Farmer plays the part of the wise father of a dysfunctional family doing its best to be happy when a body snatching alien crashlands near a small and remote town near the reservation. Upon removing himself from his stricken spaceship, the Alien murders and takes on the body and life of the first human he meets - Doctor Harry Vanderspeigle - a well-respected physician, dumping the original body in a lake. A hilarious learning curve follows as he gets used to his new human body. His mission is to fix his spaceship, kill everyone on the earth and leave. Although the storyline may sound familiar, it really is an original take on the old spaceman theme. The new CTV series is in its first season. American Indian actor, Sara Tomko, is Asta Twelvetrees, Farmers daughter,

who was the original doctor’s nurse. In real life, Tomko is of Polish, Slavic, and Native American ancestry and she feels a close connection to each of the cultures that make up the person she is. Kaylayla Raine, also of American Indian heritage, plays the daughter of Twelvetrees, who had to give up her child as a teenage mother. Raine is very active in defending Native Rights through her Facebook account. Alan Tudyk who has appeared in Firefly, Rogue One: Star Wars Story, plays the lead role as Doctor Harry Vanderspeigle / alien. The show has been renewed for at least 18 more episodes following a very successful first season. Farmer will have a lot of traveling to do this year juggles roles between Resident Alien and other TV  filling his calendar these days and movie opportunities. That’s not to mention gigs with his band, Gary Farmer and the Troublemakers, which fellow Six Nations’ connection guitar slinger, Derek Miller, works with from time to time.

Gary Farmer is one of many Six Nations’ stars in the entertainment sky-scape keeping their proud connection with the indigenous SUBMITTED cultures they come from.

A conversation with Sports Psychologists about COVID STAFF REPORT

TWO ROW TIMES

This is the companion article to the first segment. The 2020 Olympics were put on hold. An estimated 10,000 athletes were scheduled to march into Tokyo’s national stadium for the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics, with about 600,000 overseas spectators that had been expected to flock to the Japanese capital for the world’s largest sporting event at the end of July. Following the Olympic freeze, the North American Indigenous Games closed their seasons, which annually welcomed over 5000 athletes competing in 16 different sports and the Little Native Hockey League cancelled its arena bookings, which would have seen 210 teams and over 2000 players. Anthony Battaglia, a Postdoctoral Fellow and Sessional Lecturer at the University of Toronto within the Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education and the Sport and Performance Psychology Laboratory, explained that there are many ways to tackle the onset of loss of motivation at home during the pandemic. “I have worked with a few athletes during the pandemic who have struggled with motivation,” said Battaglia. “The way in which I like to approach these challenges is to first identify potential positives and then reframe goals.” “Obviously, removal from sport practices and training is not ideal, but there are

some positives in the sense that very rarely do athletes have time to actively develop mental skills an the mental side of sport that may help them with performance.” Battaglia said that one of the positives that the pandemic offers is time for athletes to practice mental skills. “I often get athletes to formulate new goals and more specifically, I emphasize process goals—these are the small steps or goals that allow us to achieve larger goals. The good thing about process goals is that they are based on controllable thoughts or actions related to performance execution and provide a road map for larger performance (e.g., scoring x number of goals) and outcome goals (e.g., winning a championship). For example, a process goal would include setting personal training goals per week (e.g. I will work out three times this week to improve my endurance). This helps athletes to stay in the moment and focus on small accomplishments because it is very easy for athletes to get discouraged when all they think about is the larger goals, such as returning to sport or winning, with no sense of direction of how this can be achieved.” Another thing that Battaglia explained is that he likes to reframe thinking as many athletes report having negative thoughts such as “I can't do this, when I come back I won't be as good” which reduces motivation. “I challenge the athletes to engage in critical reflection exercises; specifically, I ask them to record negative thoughts they have and

to spend time reframing how each negative thought can be worded positively. Example: ‘I'm going to lose my skill’ might be reframed to ‘Other athletes are in the same position, so in the meantime, I can work on other skills while I am at home to keep me prepared.’” Battaglia then spoke on his thoughts about “aging out” of a certain age division and how it can affect athlete mindset. “I cannot comment on the dynamic of any given sport but what I can speculate on is that this is a difficult reality that unfortunately many youth will be forced to confront. For perspective, we know that athletes who leave sport on their own accord often report more positive experience post-sporting career as opposed to athletes who do not have a choice in leaving sport such as sustaining an injury or in this case having their last year taken away, they may experience more negative adjustments.” “There is no clear solution to this particular problem as COVID restrictions the past year have been beyond the athletes' control. Again, many youth may adjust fine and may have already shifted their interests to focusing on school, work, and more, however there will be other youth who have a difficult time dealing with the loss of their final year especially those who heavily associate their self-worth with sport. The challenge in these situations again is having the athletes develop strategies and a plan to overcome challenges and shift their focus. For example, an athlete

who lost their last season, although not ideal, it would be beneficial to discuss goals and steps that can be taken to potentially maintain sport involvement in their lives, such as playing recreationally with friends or in pick-up leagues. In other cases, it would be beneficial to have the youth write down what other areas in life they excel at. This helps them to actively recognize that they are more than just an athlete and may help to ease the transition into other aspects/important areas of life.” Nick Alderton, a Mental Performance Consultant and Professional Member, Canadian Sport Psychology Association working out of Thunder Bay, Ontario explained that sports are often a way to cope with stress. Alderton explained that is there is a loss of motivation to stay engaged during the pandemic, he reminds athletes that this situation is out of they control and no fault of their own first. “It's easy to get caught up thinking about what has been lost, but it's important to recognize that this is out of their control,” said Alderton. “Accepting the current reality is an important first step. We do have control over our individual response to the situation and how we choose to use this time.” Alderton advised that adapting athletes training and developing new shortterm and long-term goals so they can keep connected and progressing in their sport is key.

Brandon Montour sets NHL record By TRT Staff The Buffalo Sabres finally won, snapping their 18 game losing streak, and Brandon Montour, with friends and family eagerly watching at home, set an NHL record in the process. Montour set the NHL marker for fastest consecutive shorthanded goals by a defenceman. He scored two goals only 37-seconds apart in the third period of Buffalo’s 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. The Sabres lost 18 games in a row before slamming the brakes on their skid with the resounding victory over on Wednesday. That gives the 26-yearold 4 goals and 12 points on the season. He is considered a trade target heading toward the NHL trade deadline as the former Chatham-Kent Cyclone is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Montour was originally selected 55th overall in 2014 by the Anaheim Ducks, and quickly

climbed the ranks thanks to an outstanding offensive ceiling. In 2015-16, his first full season of pro hockey, the young defenseman scored 57 points in 68 games for the San Diego Gulls. He followed it up with a near pointper-game pace the next season, before eventually getting the call to the NHL. Once at the highest level, he continued to produce offensively, though his defensive play was brought under scrutiny. Montour had 32 points in his first full NHL season, including scoring five powerplay goals. It looked like he would be a pillar of the Anaheim blueline for years, even if some of the others might have to carry some of the defensive load. Instead, Montour found himself traded to the Sabres in 2019, but now, it is promising that right-handed, puck-moving defensemen are always in high demand at the deadline.
