Council shoots down conduct code


Highway repaving Ontario is creating 70 jobs by improv- ing Highway 401 in Stormont County, according to the Ontario Liberal gov- ernment. More than 19 kilometres of Highway 401 between Upper Canada Road and Moulinette Road will be repaved, mak- ing travel easier and safer for families and businesses. Construction is targeted for completion by the end of this year. Dam gates lowering The gates raised for the passage of rec- reational boat traffic through the Iro- quois Control Dam will be lowered from Sunday to Oct. 26, 2012, according to the Ontario Power Generation’s Ottawa/ St. Lawrence Plant Group. Recreatioal boaters and anglers must use the Iroquois Lock for passage during this period, according to a media notice from OPG. The gates will be lowered to install new marine navigation beacons, warning signs, and safety lighting for small boats through the gates.

A proposed code of conduct has been re- jected by Cornwall city council. A majority of council members defeated the proposal in a recorded vote at last Mon- day night’s meeting of council. Veteran councillors Denis Thibault and Syd Gardiner were key proponents of the new policy which was also back by Mayor Bob Kilger. Also voting in favour were coun- cillors Bernadette Clement and Elaine Mac- Donald. But other councillors balked at the cost of creating another layer of bureaucracy to police the actions of individual councillors. Councillor David Murphy said council members are already governed by the On- tario Municipal Act and the city’s own pro- cedural bylaw. “This becomes a redundancy,” he said. “Howmany sets of rules do we have to have in place to tell us to play nice and act like grown-ups and run the municipality the way it should be run?” The code – prepared by retiring city clerk Denise Labelle-Gelinas -- would have made the mayor the official spokesman for city council, would have prohibited criticism of city staff, and further warned against the release of information discussed during in- camera sessions. Councillor Andre Rivette said the pro- posed code is an affront to individual coun- cillors’ right to free speech. “You have no freedom of speech to go out and say ‘I don’t think this is right.” He said it is the role of individual council- lors to advise public on city issues because they are the ones who voted the council members into power. “If you don’t … agree with the way it’s being done, it’s your job to go to the voters and say that.” Thibault, however, said the voters deserve a document which explains to them the conduct required of city council members. “We have a code of conduct for our po-

City councillor David Murphy criticized a proposed code of conduct for council mem- bers as a “redundancy” at a council meeting last Monday.

lice force, we have a code of conduct for our employees, the federal government has a code of conduct, provincial employees have a code of conduct,” he said. “Our electorate expects us to respect a certain level of conduct in the offices that we hold. And I think we need to have a document of some type that says: ‘This is what you should expect from your elected officials.’” Council members keep talking about transparency, and how to act in a fair and impartial and professional manner, but what should be used to hold them to ac- count? he questioned. Voters owed a code “It should be on a code of conduct that says, ‘This is what you should expect from your elected officials.’” Councillor Glen Grant worried the pro- posed code inferred there is a problemwith councillors’ conduct where there in fact is no problem. “When I look at this we’re saying there’s a problem, in my estimation. It’s a little bit proactive, but it’s also reactive in some re- spects. And I don’t believe we have a prob- lem.” He also worried the policy would cre- meaning the city will not be able to solicit extra funding even if there is an increased demand for social services. “The cap means . . . there will be a maxi- mum each year and we don’t have the abil- ity to say to the province, ‘we need some more, we’d like some more’.” Two groups, AMO, and Ontario Municipal Social Services Association, are collecting information frommunicipalities to evaluate how they will be affected by the funding cuts. Bureaucrats will also look at policies and procedures to “shrink” funding, Daigle said. A regional meeting will be held Sept. 21

ate another level of bureaucracy, another policy and another commissioner to which the municipality must report, while stress- ing council members are already governed by the Ontario Municipal Act and the city’s own procedural bylaw. Clement said any kind of document pro- scribing appropriate behavior for council members “is a good thing.” “It encourages transparency and it en- courages trust and co-operation as well. This kind of exercise will force us to look at ourselves and it’s time that we do,” she said. But Councillor Maurice Dupelle suggest- ed city hall was barking up the wrong tree with the proposed conduct code. “Communications around our council table is sometimes an issue and it is some- thing we need to work on as elected offi- cials of the city of Cornwall,” Dupelle said. “That’s where we need to start looking.” Kilger, in a last ditch plea, stressed propo- nents weren’t intimating there is a problem with the conduct of council m embers, nor were they trying to “quick fix” anything. “We are all held to a very high standard, but we need that standard clearly defined. I see this as an enhancement to the work that we do.” for area municipalities to compare notes, Daigle said. “So we will be looking at what our neighbours in the eastern region will be doing as well.” According to a report prepared for city council, the “quality of life for some vulnera- ble citizens”may be affected as the city and other agencies struggle to coping with the loss of funding. “Provincial funding changes will have sig- nificant impacts on client service, however within the allowable maximums, there will be a slight decrease in the municipal contri- bution to discretionary benefits in 2013 due to the cost-sharing formula.”

City to lose $2 million in social services funding

By Greg Kielec

A loss of $2 million in provincial social ser- vices funding will force the city to make “some very, very difficult decisions,” says Mayor Bob Kilger. “This is an action that was taken in the most recent provincial budget but is really coming to the surface of late in the impact it is having on communities,” Kilger told city council last Monday night. Debora Daigle, city manager of social and housing services, said social services funding has been capped by the province,

It may be the most fun you’ll ever have on a bus. Departing Finch at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, it’s South Nation Conservation’s 9th annual fall bus tour of environmental enhancement projects in its 4,000-square-km watershed. Participants will tour parts of SD&G and receive descriptions and updates of the projects from SNC field staff. A bag lunch I am pleased that Catherine Fife, the out- standing NDP candidate, has won the by- election in Kitchener-Waterloo. The convincing win by the NDP in Kitch- ener-Waterloo is a clear repudiation of the McGuinty Government’s record of cyni- cal politicking, demonizing the province’s teachers and doctors and its inept manage- ment of E-Health, Ornge air ambulance and the costly cancellation of power plants in Mississauga and Oakville to win seats in the last provincial election. The voters of Kitchener-Waterloo agreed with Andrea Horwath and the Ontario NDP that Dalton McGuinty does not deserve a majority government. The voters of Kitchener-Waterloo also saw Tim Hudak and the Ontario Conservatives with their unconstitutional wage freeze scheme for Ontario’s public servants as a throw-back to the Mike Harris reign of error and terror.

They voted for positive change that puts people first. The NDP wants to get to work at Queen’s Park and get results for families who are worried about jobs, healthcare, and the cost of everyday life.

Turbo Crank spins the boredom out of indoor cycling

You don’t have to go far to take a spin with Joe McNamara’s new cycling software -- in fact, you don’t need to go anywhere at all.. McNamara, a member of the Cornwall Multisport Club, is the inventor of Turbo Crank, a software-based workout for cy- clists and triathletes that is designed to help riders get the most out of their bike and sta- tionary trainer. The program simplifies indoor cycling by illustrating the workout, step by step . “This has been great summer for cycling, and more and more people are looking to improve their stamina and performance by training year-round,” said McNamara. “The challenge is to make indoor workouts as fun and interesting as outdoor rides.” An avid cyclist himself, McNamara began using an indoor cycling trainer during the offseason in the late ‘80s. He would write down a workout on paper and try to follow it, with poor results. He started taking part in organized work- outs offered in town but found dragging his bike back and forth a headache during the snowy winter months. McNamara’s solution was to design a variable, challenging workout plan that he could follow on his computer – one that would also allow him to watch a video or listen to a custom playlist of his favourite music. Fortunately, he had the computer skills that allowed him to develop his own soft- ware program to meet his vision. He sought out other cyclists, including Dutch elite cy- clist Tom Gakes, and asked them what they were looking for from a workout program. He took those ideas and over a couple of years refined his program until he was ready to launch it as Turbo Crank. The Nav Centre in Cornwall unveiled a new jewel in its sprawling facility along the St. Lawrence River Thursday− the Nav Spa . The luxurious and welcoming spa was of- ficially unveiled during an opening ceremo- ny at the Nav Centre in Thursday morning. Nav Centre general manager Kim Coe- Turner couldn’t reveal the cost of the 2,600 -square-foot facility. But she did say the cre- ation of the spa and the nearby Propeller restaurant took “millions of dollars.” The restaurant and spa are the result of nine months on intense construction and renovation at the Nav Centre. The spa features sauna and massage rooms, manicure and pedicure areas, hair- styling facilities as well as cosmetic consul- tations by Dr James Lacey of Ottawa. A wide range of services are offered by the spa, including body treatments, reg- istered massage therapy, facials, nail care, By Greg Kielec

Based upon the reaction from cyclists, Turbo Crank is the right product at the right price. “This a great work out that not only keeps me in shape during the winter, but also helps me improve my technique and per- formance,” said Gary Jans, a fellow member of the Cornwall Multisport Club. “Both my wife and I have enjoyed using Turbo Crank.” The difference between Turbo Crank and other indoor cycling workout aids is that Turbo Crank shows the participant the gear to be using, the cadence (pedal revolu- tions per minute) and effort, along with a detailed explanation of the interval. Other workout videos usually only show one or two elements. The program is available for download for PC/Mac on This is the third full year that Turbo Crank is been avail- able and sales continue to increase. Both men and women seem to like the product equally, although McNamara ac- knowledges that most cyclists buying it are likely in the northern hemisphere where you cannot ride outdoors during the colder months. “The triathlon community has been very receptive to the product and I have been able to spread the word via online message forums,” said McNamara. “I offer established bloggers an opportu- nity to review the software in exchange for a free version for themselves and a free ver- sion to give away to one of their readers.” At only $20 dollars, Turbo Crank offers great value for the dollar, according to Mc- Namara, who has already released a new version and is continually working on im- provements. ings, making the Nav Centre an all-in-one venue for your meeting, leisure and well- ness needs.” The new spa will be managed by Linda Arsenault-Graham, who has more than 30 years experience in massage and esthetics industry. “I’m thrilled to have our baby born,” said exclaimed at the opening ceremony. “We want the whole world to know the Nav Spa is now open.” Arsenault-Graham will manage a staff registered massage therapists and esthe- ticians who are trained to offer the same consistent, high quality service that distin- guishes the Nav Centre, according to Coe- Turner. “We wanted to work with Linda because of her expertise running a leading spa as well as her excellent reputation for client service in Cornwall,” says Coe-Turner. “Dr. Lacey brings with him the latest innova- tions in anti-aging procedures, based out of his highly-regarded practice in Ottawa.”

Local cyclist Joe McNamara is pictured next to computer operating Turbo Crank, a training software he developed for cycling indoors.

It has proven to be a success with cyclists and triathaletes around the world. “The reaction has been excellent,” said McNamara. “Riding an indoor trainer can be boring. Having a structure to your workout

really helps the time pass and helps you to reach your fitness goals that much quicker.” Turbo Crank comes ready to go with a seven-week indoor cycling program, with three workouts per week.

They erupted for five goals in the third period – four of them on the power- play – to beat the Braves 6-0 last Thursday night. Colts’ veteran Marly Quince initiated the rally with an unassisted marker just 1:59 into the third period after opening the scor- ing six minutes into the second period. It was followed by four powerplay goals in less than three minutes midway through the third.

VANESSA MORIN, étudiante

Jean Bédard se donne à fond pour les disparus COMMUNAUTAIRE

rigé une demande formelle d’aide au quar- tier général de la SQ à Montréal. J’ai reçu mon accréditation afin de recevoir la liste des personnes disparues, liste confiden- tielle du corps de police. Après cela, tous les corps de police m’ont ouvert leur porte dans tout le Canada.» Jean se souvient d’un cas majeur à Cor- nwall. Celui de la disparition, le 13 décembre 2010, de Denise Vernier, retrouvée morte un mois plus tard dans un boisé. L’Associa- tion a travaillé dur en posant des affiches de recherche, en discutant avec la population et en travaillant en étroite collaboration avec la détective Jennifer Paiement, de la police de Cornwall. « Ça m’a pris du temps à m’en remettre.» Suite à cette enquête et cette découverte, le mari de Denise, Mike Vernier, s’est joint à la petite équipe de Jean en devenant le directeur de l’Association. Jocelyne Temblay en est la vice-présidente. Ces associations, qui fluctuent à travers le monde, sont importantes et doivent être reconnues par les hautes instances de police pour travailler avec ces derniers. Les personnes y gravitant sont bénévoles et donnent de leur temps afin d’aider non seulement les forces de l’ordre mais aussi les familles qui, bien souvent, ne désirent parler qu’à ces bénévoles. Cependant, ces associations travaillent avec les moyens du bord. Celle de Jean, par L’instigatrice de l’événement, Micheline Martel, professeur d’éducation physique, a organisé une journée mémorable et touchante pour venir en aide à la famille de la petite Madison qui devra rester à l’hôpital au moins jusqu’à l’été prochain. «Cette collecte de fonds, a-t-elle dit, a été mise sur pieds pour venir en aide à la famille de Madison. Une telle nouvelle dans une famille donne un choc.» Le père de Madison a mis en veilleuse son travail


I l y a c i nq ans, J e an B éd ar d n e sava it pas d u to u t qu e l a v ie l ’am è n e ra it sur un e ar tè r e ô c o m bie n di ff é r e n te de c elle sur l aqu elle il avança it avan t. Jusqu’au j o ur de l a di spar i - tio n de l a j e un e Céd r i ka P r o v e nc he r . Lorsque Cédrika disparaît de son domicile de Trois-Rivières, au Québec, le 31 juillet 2007, Jean, alors à la retraite, se réveille en pleine nuit avec la forte sensation qu’il doit s’investir. Il reçoit un message clair, celui de construire un site Internet pour rechercher la jeune fille disparue qui n’a jamais été retrouvée à ce jour. Originaire lui-même de Trois-Rivières mais habitant Cornwall de- puis plus de 30 ans, Jean se met au travail. « À partir de ce moment, tout a commencé », explique l’ancien animateur de radio. Son premier site de recherche s’appelait Le ré- seau national enfants disparus. Aujourd’hui, l’ Association des enfants et adultes disparus inc. est son nouveau nom web et on peut y accéder en tapant le . « J’ai dû casser bien des murs pour gagner la confiance. La toute première personne à m’avoir ouvert les portes est la caporale Nathalie Frigon, de la Sûreté du Québec, à Trois-Rivières, raconte Jean Bédard. Elle a di-

exemple, n’a jamais reçu de subvention, ne serait-ce que pour acheter de nouveaux ordinateurs, des imprimantes, des logiciels spéciaux pour personnes disparues ou en- core des radios à communications privées. Qu’à cela ne tienne. Quand le cœur y est,

Jean ne compte pas. « Je n’arrêterai jamais, tant et aussi longtemps que j’ai la santé. Je travaillerai toujours pour les victimes et les familles.» Pour Jean Bédard, ce nouveau ‘’travail’’ depuis cinq ans est un réel défi « mais la réalité est tout autre », conclut-il.

Les résidents sont priés de déposer les feuilles et les résidus de jardin dans des sacs en papier compostables ou des contenants réutilisables seulement. Ils doivent déposer les feuilles et les résidus de jardin en bor- dure de chaussée avant 7 h le jour prévu de collecte des déchets, puis un camion dis- tinct prévu à cet effet les ramassera. Le bois propre, les arbres, les branches, les broussailles et les haies ne peuvent être transformés en compost avec les feuilles et les résidus de jardin de la ville. Par consé- quent, les résidents sont priés de les séparer et de les attacher en petits paquets pour la collecte. En 2011, la ville a ramassé et reçu un total de 907 tonnes de feuilles et de résidus de jardin, lesquels ont été transportés à un em- placement distinct au site de décharge de la ville. Les matières sont transformées afin de créer une riche matière compostable of- ferte gratuitement aux résidents qui sou- haitent l’utiliser dans leur jardin. Les résidents peuvent aller chercher gra- tuitement les matières compostables au site de décharge tout au long de l’année.
