We hope that political parties and lo- cal candidates commit to work with Ontario’s doctors to improve patient care,” says OMA president Stewart Kennedy. It is difficult to contest what the doctors have ordered. Between now and October 6, we can expect to be immersed in partisan politics, posturing and a mix of posi- tive and negative ingredients.

Yes, we can: Pickles and politics

Yes, we can. While that line is often used for political purposes, it also speaks of the passion of those who crave the chance to stir things up, who love to steam up the kitchen, who like to get into pickles and jams and preserves. Fall has many rites and smells. For many, the changing season is marked by the scents of mixes of sugar, vinegar and spices that are used but once a yea r . Hour s a r e happ i l y spen t searching for jars and sealers, and chopping, dicing and jarring fruits and vegetables. One of the many benefits of this autumnal tradition is that it helps peo- ple to adhere to the 100-mile diet. In this region, we have many sour- ces of fresh food. If we cannot grow it ourselves, we can purchase it from lo- cal producers. We can buy locally-grown food directly from the source and preserve it. On a cold winter day, you can crack open a jar of jam and remember the days when the temperature was over plus 30 and the humidity hung in the air. While the snow flies, you can dip into a jar of pickles, and be warmed by the memories of giant and rapidly spreading cucumbers and zucchini. Alas, while it is tempting to hole up in a warm, aromatic spot and can the fall away, we cannot ignore the outside world. Whether we like it or not, another political campaign is on, and various parties, not just the ones seeking votes, are vying for our attention. For example, the Ontario branch of the Canadian Federation of Students, has organized a “Take It Over” drive in an effort to encourage more young voters to cast ballots in the October 6 Ontario election. A student at George Brown College has developed a video game where the player must dodge obstacles like tuition fees, debt and apathy to tackle a ballot box. “Drawing on the skills of our members, this game was designed to be a fun way to engage Ontarians about voting on October 6,” said Cindy Brownlee, Director of Education and Equity for the Student Association of George Brown College. Che ck out That is the site for Elections Ontario, t he gove rnmen t agency t ha t has launched several new initiatives. “It’s now easier than ever to vote in a provincial general election,” said Chief Electoral Officer Greg Essensa. Unde r t he Mo r e Day s Mo r e Way s program, voters have more flexibility than ever before to choose how, when and where to vote. New for this election, Ontarians who are eligible to vote will be able to do so by mail using a special ballot. Voters can also cast their special ballot at their returning office or satellite office. E l ec t i ons On t a r i o i s mak i ng ava i l ab l e new as s i s t i ve vo t i ng technology (AVT). This includes the AVT’s audio tactile interface, paddles and sip and puff devices that allow voters who had previously needed as- sistance to cast their ballot to vote

secretly and independently. The AVT will be available in returning offices and satellite offices from September 21 to October 5. “The assistive voting t echno l ogy i s a key pa r t o f our commitment to offer more choice to Ontario voters and just one of the ways we’re making it easy to vote in the 2011 general election,” said Essensa. One issue on voters’ minds is health. In fact, municipal leaders from across Ontario chose health care as the number one issue that political parties should focus on in the upcoming pro- vincial election. In a survey conducted by the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) at the recent Municipalities of Ontario annual meeting, When asked to identify what health care issues were most pressing and would have the most impact on patient care municipal leaders chose access to a physician and more long-term care beds. Ontario’s doctors are prescribing a set of recommendations — “Better care. Healthier patients. A stronger Onta- r i o . ” The p l a t f orm i nc l ude s 41 recommendations designed to improve Basketball Titans Minor Basketball Association will be holding it’s registration, on Wednesday, September 28, for one night only, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:p.m. in the gymnasium of École Paul VI, 500 Main St. East, Hawkesbury.
