In celebration of Hockey Day in Canada on February 18, the City of Cornwall’s Canada 150 Committee will be offering some special activities that day at some outdoor rinks. Hockey Day in Cornwall will touch down at four rinks to celebrate the game at the grassroots level. It will also give a chance to recognize the numerous volunteers who give their time tomaintain the various rinks around the city. “It’s important that we show our thanks to these volunteers,” said Lorne Taillon, Leisure Arts Coordinator for the City of Cornwall. “Without them, we wouldn’t have nearly as many outdoor rinks for families to enjoy.” The festivities will take place at Menard and Memorial Parks at 12 pm followed by Grant and Alexander Parks at 1:30 pm. There will be a shooting accuracy contest, skate tying competitions, a puck memory challenge and other fun free activities. Participants will have a chance to win some free prizes, including Colts and Nationals tickets, free skate passes and

coupons at Play It Again Sports. There will also be free hot chocolate and visits from some special guests. Attendees are encouraged to show up in their favourite team colours. One lucky superfan will win a prize for their team dedication!

Hausse des ventes au détail pour un 4e mois de suite, à 45 milliards $

OTTAWA (Presse canadienne) - Les ventes au détail ont augmenté pour le quatrième mois consécutif en novembre au Canada, de 0,2 %, pour s’établir à 45,2 milliards $. Statistique Canada attribue la hausse de novembre à l’augmentation des ventes des concessionnaires de véhicules et de pièces automobiles et à celles des marchands de matériel et fournitures de jardinage, surtout. Les ventes ont augmenté dans 5 des 11 sous-secteurs qui représentent 45 % du total des ventes au détail. Les magasins d’alimentation ont affiché un recul de 0,5 % en novembre. La diminution des ventes des supermarchés et autres épiceries, de 0,9 %, a plus que contrebalancé la hausse de 1,4 % des ventes des magasins de bière, de vin et de spiritueux. L’agence fédérale a observé des augmentations de ventes au détail dans sept des provinces canadiennes en novembre. Au Québec, elles ont progressé de 0,3 %.

New public concerns policy The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) has a new policy for dealing with public concerns about district matters. UCDSB trustees approved the new policy during their Jan. 25 board session. The new policy puts more emphasis on transparency and accountability between the UCDSB and the public. The policy includes a new Public Complaints Resolution Procedure to take effect throughout the district for handling queries from residents about Upper Canada district procedures and issues. – Gregg Chamberlain
