Thirst for fresh water could leave Canada feeling dry

He was charged with three counts of failing to comply with an undertaking be- fore an officer in charge. He was held in custody pending an appearance in Corn- wall court. Caught in the act Cornwall police caught a burglar red- handed when he was found inside a res- idence in the 100 block of Prince Arthur Street on May 11. The man was found in the house by po- lice after responding to a complaint of a break-and-enter in progress. Eric Deschesnes, 36 of Cornwall, is charged with b reak and enter and com- mitting an indictable offence. He was re- leased but must appear in court on June 6. Left ex fearing for safety A St. Andrews woman faces charges after she was accused of harassing her 30-year-old ex-boyfriend to a point that he feared for his safety. Please see CITYWOMAN: Page 4 class, he began focusing on a cheap, easy to use water tester for developing countries. But what began as a simple water-testing device evolved into a cutting edge machine that can instantly relay water test informa- tion anywhere in the world through the use of mobile communication technology. The inventor of the device, aptly named the Water Canary, envisions a day where anyone around the world can see water hot spots with just the touch of the screen. “I want people to know about water,” he in- sists. It would be a lifetime’s work, but the high-profile, last-minute guest speaker at The St. Lawrence River Institute of Environ- mental Sciences 20 th annual international river symposium, hopes enough data could be collected to create an interactive water quality database much like Google Maps. “I’d like to call it a weather service for wa- ter we’re trying to build,” he explained. “Our job will be done if we have a map of all the world’s fresh water and what is in it.” Luthra, a fellow with the non-profit or- ganization Technology, Entertainment, De- sign, which is called TED for short, ended up in Cornwall after he was brought to Canada by the United States embassy to promote his invention. Luthra is the CEO and co-founder of Wa- ter Canary, a company seeking to transform the fight against waterborne illness and water-related emergencies with real-time water quality information. According to his biography, h is company is developing a simple, open-source, device that quickly and cheaply determines when water can’t be trusted so that actions can be taken to secure water supplies and prevent the spread of pollution and disease.


Forcible confinement A 22-year-old North Glengarry man fac- es charges after a domestic incident on Lochiel Street last Wednesday. Investigation by SD&G Ontario Provin- cial Police revealed the man had assault- ed his girlfriend and damaged some of her personnel property. The man is charged with domestic mis- chief, forcible confinement, assault and overcoming resistance to commit an in- dictable offence He was held in custody pending an ap- pearance in Cornwall court. Breached conditions Last Wednesday, at approximately 8p.m., SD&G OPP officers responded to a report of a teen breaching his release conditions on Froatburn Road in South Dundas. Investigation revealed that the 18-year- old male was breaching his earlier release conditions by being in the presence of a fe- male withwhomhe was forbidden contact. Then Canadians will be faced with mak- ing tough decisions about how much wa- ter the country is willing to export without jeopardizing its precious natural resource. Luthra, the inventor of real-time water- testing technology, is a former journalist and educator who had an abrupt change in career paths after enrolling in NYU’s famed Interactive Telecommunications Program. He originally planned on focusing on soft- ware development at the renowned breed- ing ground for cross-disciplinary thinking, but instead “fell in love” with the language of circuitry. “It just felt fairly destined,” he re- called. After enrolling in a Design for UNICEF CRIME SCENE A resource often taken for granted in Canada could be eyed with the same envy as oil has been the past four or more de- cades, according to the American inventor of a revolutionary water-testing device Sonaar Luthra, who was guest speaker last Wednesday evening at the first day of the St. Lawrence River Institute’s two- day annual international river symposium, said there are already conflicts over water throughout the world. If climate change results in increasing water shortages south of the border, there could be pressure on Canada to share its precious resource, Luthra said in an inter- view with The Journal . “There won’t be enough water in the states to meet the demands of the popu- lation,” said Luthra. “We don’t know how weather patterns are going to change.”

City community engagement?

The city of Cornwall will be hosting a com- munity engagement session on Wednes- day, May 29 to seek input from the public on priorities for the city. “We are embarking on an important stra- tegic planning exercise, and input from the public is a key part of this exercise,” said Norm Levac, chief administrative officer. “I would encourage residents to join us at this session and provide input on their concerns and priorities for the city.” The session will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Salon B of the Cornwall Civic Com- plex, and all residents and community stakeholders are invited to attend and par- ticipate. It will be a roundtable session, and scribes will be on hand at each table to col- lect input from community members on what should be included in the city’s new strategic plan. For those who wish to participate but are unable to attend the live session, there will be a survey available online at the city web-

site and in hard copy at various City build- ings. The completed surveys, along with the data collected at the community engage- ment session, will be compiled and submit- ted to the city of Cornwall to be used in its strategic planning exercise. Additional in- formation on the survey will be announced shortly. In addition to the public input compo- nent, the strategic planning exercise will also consist of an internal survey of city em- ployees and two strategic planning sessions with city council on Saturday, June 1 and Thursday, June 6. A final report is expected to be completed by Friday, June 14 and pre- sented to council at its regular meeting of Monday, June 24. The strategic planning exercise is being led by the St. Lawrence College Corporate Learning and Performance Improvement office, which delivers professional devel- opment and consulting services to a wide range of private and public sector clients.

Shelved Lookout Point plan may be back on the table Former waterfront develolpment committee member Bill Beattie, right, explains the historical significance of Pointe Maligne to committee members Thursday evening as Chair Lee Cassidy, and city planner Stephen Alexander look on.

City planner Stephan Alexander had al- ready begun work on the plan in early 2010, and a contract for initial Lookout Point work was awarded in October 2010 by city council to MMM Group Limited to provide three design concepts to bring to the “pub- lic, stakeholders and waterfront committee meetings”, according to waterfront commit- tee minutes from Nov. 25, 2010. But the new waterfront committee – re- constituted in line with the new term of council -- began distancing itself from the development shortly after the new council began its new term in December 2011. At a Jan. 13, 2011 meeting, Roy Perkins moved a motion, seconded by Guy Menard, “that the Waterfront Committee delay any further discussions on Park and Landscape Design for Lookout Point/Pointe Maligne” until a special committee meeting one week later. The Lookout Point plan was scrapped by the waterfront committee in June 2011, de- spite the fact the committee had already spent money developing a proposal for the site and that it had received approval from Cornwall city council. At the Jan. 20 special meeting, Eric Lang moved a motion seconded by Councillor Denis Thibault, that the committee defer consultations on the proposal “until they have taken the time to look at other op- tions such as development of areas along the park with the intent to have a balance of commercial and parkland.” At a meeting of the waterfront committee on June 16, 2011, Perkins moved a motion seconded by Menard that “administration write a report to city council to advise that the waterfront committee does not wish to take any further action on the Request for Proposal # 10-R for Park Design for ‘Lookout Pointe/Pointe Maligne’ and wishes to close the file for the time being.”

After striking out with a contentious con- do plan and a beach inlet for Lamoureux Park, a project shelved by the city’s Water- front Development Committee two years ago is back on the radar. The committee is once again considering a proposal to convert Lookout Point, also known as Point Maligne, adjacent to the ball fields east of Marina 200, into a local tourist attraction. Former waterfront committee member Bill Beattie made a lengthy presentation about the historical significance of the point to waterfront committee members Thursday evening. The previous waterfront committee had been working on turning the point into a historic tourist attraction, but that plan was scrapped by the new committee in early 2011 to pursue a plan for condos next to the Cornwall Civic Complex in Lamoureux Park. Beattie told the committee the point has important historical significance because it was the first meeting point between Sir John Johnson, who wanted to survey the area to eventually become Cornwall, and First Nations peoples. “Pointe Maligne has a line of site un- equalled in any other area of the Cornwall waterfront,” said Beattie, adding it should be developed “but not necessarily to be planned as you might envision it to be.” Committee chair Lee Cassidy said the pre- sentation revealed to committee members “a good idea of how important this little piece of land is.” She added that “maybe some development of some historical” sig- nificance can take place at the site.

to keep things on track.” “I love a challenge so being in retail I get my fix every day” said Perkins, who ex- plained that seeing staff grow and develop and helping all his customers fulfill their dreams is very rewarding. Perkins considers his family one his great- est accomplishments, and is what he values most. Perkins and his wife, Muriel have been married for 35 years and have two children, Angela and Stephen, and three grandchil- dren, Abbey, Ava and Dexter.

Roy Perkins is a man synonymous with community spirit. Perkins, owner of Per- kins Home Centres Ltd, feels we are all put on this earth to make a difference. “The key is to find out where you fit, in or- der to make sure you make someone else’s life better,” he said. Perkins, Cornwall’s Citizen of the Year in 2006, stepped up to the plate and for the past eight years and has been involved with the Cornwall Community Hospital Founda- tion. Most recently as co-chair, along with his daughter Angela, he spearheaded fun- draising of the Cornwall Community Hospi- tal’s MRI campaign. “I believe we need to do what we can to offer support,” Perkins said. “To me it’s all about caring and sharing and by doing my part I believe I ammaking a difference in the health of my family, friends, neighbours and

However he always has time for his grand- children. “The person who has had the greatest in- fluence on my life is my dad,” said Perkins. “He showed us that we can all do what we want if we choose to.” It is for this reason, that Perkins feels the meaning of success is being happy in your own skin, and proud of it. If there was one thing he could change, it would be for ev- eryone to have a reason to get up in the morning and accomplish their goals.

is one of three boys. One of his most inspi- rational moments as a child was riding the family pony for the first time.Being he was the youngest in his family, Perkins was the last one to learn to ride a horse, but as he re- calls this taught him that you can do almost anything if you try hard enough. In 1976, Perkins moved to Cornwall and he started studying carpentry at St. Law- rence College. Back then Perkins did not realize where this venture would take him,

only that he enjoyed carpentry and had a skill. He never thought that he would one day own a business until he started to work in one. “Working at Menard’s I really enjoyed helping people, and when I was 25 I was working 55 hours per week, so I said to the owners of the business, ‘If I am going to work these extra hours I might as well work

for myself’. . . so I shared that I would like to buy a part of the business.” “Now as owner I work 60 – 65 hours per week. It’s a big commitment but it’s very re- warding.” The hardest part of getting things just right in his business is change, Perkins said. “The one constant is change.

No sex proves good for laughs





$ ^

The very successful farce “ No Sex Please, We’re British” presented by the Seaway Valley Theatre Company, delighted audi- ences at Dream Builder Studios for their opening performance this weekend. The show, written by Anthony Marriott and Alistair Foot, had all the makings of a side-splitting comedy, complete with mis- taken identities, trumped up schemes, mad- cap antics, hysterical cover-ups, romance, and the right ingredients to keep the audi- ence laughing and left them wanting more. In essence it is suspicion made funny in the style of Benny Hill. The key to successfully performing British comedy is the timing, and with this production the performers have it in spades. Set Windsor, England, in the 1970’s, the play takes place in the apartment of new- lyweds Frances (Krystal Taillon) and Peter Hunter (Michael Petrynka), who live up- stairs from the bank that he manages. Fran- ces innocently sends off a mail-order for some Scandinavian glassware but receives instead numerous boxes of pornographic materials. The couples seek assistance from their muddled and clumsy friend Brian Run- nicies (Grant Reso) an assistant at the bank to help them dispose of the unwanted ma- terials. Needless to say the hilarity ensues and things go terribly wrong as Peter’s mother, his boss, a visiting bank inspector, some call girls, and a police superintendent show up unexpectedly causing mayhem for the trio. The play is full of sexual innuendos, making it all the more hilarious. Director Dave Barnes has chosen an ex- ceptional cast to bring the hilarious farce to life. The roles call for as much physi- cal responses and exact timing as acting skills. The entire cast performed at a high energy level throughout, using both vocal and physical comedy as they pursued each other, eluded pursuit, and slammed doors. Reso in the role of the misinformed and nervous Brian Runnicies gave a brilliant performance, bringing out a natural ease and familiarity of how to play his role. Reso, a newcomer to the stage, became com- pletely absorbed in his character. “I really enjoyed the physicality of the part. I have always wanted to do physical humour and I enjoyed this part. I felt very comfortable in this role.” Veteran actor Michael Petrynka as Peter Hunter also gave a strong performance in his role, and along with Reso added to the outrageous comedy and hysteria, while keeping the pace of the show going. The show runs now through May 25th with evening and matinee performances. Tickets are available at Cornwall Square Ad- min office at 613-938-2118.

Il se compose aujourd’hui de cinq membres et de 13 bénévoles.

trée, un kiosque.» Hospice Cornwall est une résidence qui accueille les patients en phase terminale. Avec ses 10 chambres privées, il reçoit et offre des services à toutes les heures. «Si un malade décide de manger, de boire du thé à 2h ou à 3h du matin, on le sert, té- moigne Ray O’Collin, un des bénévoles. S’il veut avoir quelqu’un à côté pour lui tenir la main quand la fin approche ou lui dire des prières, on a ces personnes», informe M. O’Collin. Pour son bon fonctionnement, l’établis- sement a besoin chaque année de 1 M $, dont 475 000$ sont versés par le gouver- nement. Il revient alors à Hospice Cornwall d’aller chercher lui-même le reste du mon- tant, par le biais de diverses activités. C’est fort de cette réalité que le Comité Bingo a décidé de voler au secours de l’organisme, lui qui parvient à récolter, à tous les ans, la somme moyenne de 10 000$ pour le Centre Charles-Émile-Claude. «Sans cette activité-là, on aurait des dif- ficultés financières. C’est un gros support financier pour le Centre», reconnaît la direc-

Le Comité Bingo du Centre Charles-Émile- Claude a alloué une somme de 300$ à Hospice Cornwall. La cérémonie de remise du chèque a eu lieu le 8 mai, au siège de l’organisme où se tenait, au même mo- ment, une levée de fonds au profit de ce foyer de soins de fin de vie qu’administre Carefor. Les deux opérations ont permis de récolter 610$. C’est la première fois que le Comité Bingo donne à Hospice Cornwall une partie des profits de l’activité qu’il organise les lundis soir. «C’est extrêmement généreux de leur part, salue Linda Newman, directrice gé- nérale du Centre Charles-Émile-Claude. C’est un geste qu’on apprécie beaucoup. Ça permet au Centre de rayonner dans la com- munauté, et l’on encourage nos membres à faire une levée de fonds pour l’hospice en permettant à ce dernier d’avoir à notre en-

La Société Alzheimer sensibilise la population

La salle n’a pas manqué de réagir à l’explication: «Pour le cas de mon mari, le docteur n’a jamais mentionné la démence, ni l’Alzheimer. Il a dit une perte cognitive», précise une dame, et un homme de ren- chérir: «Mais le mot Alzheimer est-il plus fort que la démence?». La maladie d’Alzheimer est une forme de démence, répond l’intervenante, qui iden- tifie la démence fronto-temporale que l’on rencontrerait souvent chez les plus jeunes ayant un trouble de comportement social, la démence à corps de Lewy qui serait sem- blable à la maladie de Parkinson et la dé- mence vasculaire qui renvoie à un manque d’oxygène dans le cerveau. Mme Perras note au passage que le mot est peu utilisé à cause de sa connotation né- gative et poursuit sa communication avec les dix signes précurseurs de l’Alzheimer qui sont: la perte de mémoire qui nuit aux ac- tivités quotidiennes, la difficulté à exécuter les tâches familières, les problèmes de langage, la désorientation dans l’espace et dans le temps, le jugement amoindri, la difficulté aux notions abstraites, les objets égarés, les changements d’humeur ou de comportement, le changement de person- nalité et la perte d’intérêt. Afin de mieux faire passer son message, la communicatrice a recours à la projec-

tion d’images présentant les modifica- tions du cerveau aux différentes étapes de l’Alzheimer. À la question des participants à savoir comment prévenir la maladie, elle conseille, pour réduire le risque, de faire au moins 30 minutes d’exercice physique par jour, comme la marche, d’avoir une bonne alimentation, d’entretenir des contacts so- En plus d’informer les proches aidants sur les services communautaires disponibles, la Société Alzheimer de Cornwall et région procède à un suivi des malades en mettant à leur disposition ses conseillers en soutien familial. Conseil d’administration de la station de radio CHOD FM ciaux et d’éviter l’isolement, la routine ainsi que les blessures à la tête.


«Il était rapide dans ses mouvements et faisait de la joie de vivre sa raison d’être. Aujourd’hui, plus rien ne l’intéresse, il ne se souvient de presque rien et c’est à pe- ine s’il peut s’habiller. Ce n’est pas mon mari ça», raconte une femme, la voix chargée de tristesse. «Je ne comprends plus le comportement de ma mère qui a 94 ans et je veux savoir», enchaîne une autre, confuse. Ce sont quelques-uns des proches aidants venus suivre la session d’information offerte le 15 mai par la So- ciété Alzheimer de Cornwall et région. Comprendre la maladie d’Alzheimer et les maladies apparentées, était le thème de l’exposé que la coordonnatrice de l’éducation de la société avait à présenter à son auditoire. D’entrée, Joëlle Perras rassure les partici- pants que toutes leurs informations seront tenues confidentielles. Elle les interroge ensuite sur la démence qui, souligne-t-elle, n’est pas une maladie comme telle, mais une série de symptômes qui fait appel à une perte de mémoire, de jugement et de raisonnement.

Un tour du Canada à pied pour les élèves de l’école élémentaire catholique Sainte-Thérèse

L’exercice regroupe, par jour, dans la cour de l’École élémentaire catholique Sainte-Thérèse de Cornwall, une quarantaine d’élèves de la 1re et 2e année qui courent pour accumuler des kilomètres. L’objectif est d’amener les enfants à mieux connaître leur pays, de développer leur sens d’appartenance et de leur donner le goût du savoir. Dans une journée, Carol Viau, qui est la responsable de l’opération, obtient jusqu’à 80 kilomètres des jambes de ses écoliers très con- tents de parcourir avec leurs petits pieds, tout le grand Canada, dans une cour d’école. Chacun a droit à six tours qui comptent pour deux kilomètres. Ils devraient partir de Vancouver en Colombie-Britannique pour arriver à St-John’s à Terre-Neuve; compte tenu de leur âge, par con- tre, Mme Viau a préféré leur faire avaler la moitié du parcours qui correspond à 3714 kilomètres. Commencée au mois d’octobre 2012, l’opération Partir à pied dé- couvrir le Canada a déjà plus de 2200 kilomètres à son compteur. Cette belle caravane des enfants explorateurs qui a pris virtuelle- ment le départ de Vancouver poursuivra sa traversée, probable- ment, jusqu’à la fin de l’année. L’activité permet aux enfants de gagner des prix dont la finalité est de leur faire aimer les études et d’aiguiser leur curiosité dans diverses disciplines allant de l’histoire à la géographie en passant par les mathématiques. Partir à pied découvrir le Canada, qui est une proposition du Centre communautaire de l’Estrie, comporte un volet culturel où les élèves participants de l’École élémentaire catholique Sainte- Thérèse doivent répondre aux questions qui leur sont posées.
