Do you shop locally?

In Cornwall, it’s anticipated that the majority of holiday shopping will be done locally, according to the city’s Economic Development agency.


Here in Cornwall, it’s anticipated that the majority of shopping will be done locally, ac- cording to the city’s Economic Development agency. “I was told that less and less Cornwall citizens travelled to New York over Black Friday,” explained Mark Boileau, past Economic Development Manager for the city and now General Manager, Planning, Development and Recreation. Boileau points to the Canadian dollar being considerably lower than its American counterpart as themain reason eager shop- pers will more than likely not cross the border for Christmas gifts. “We’re doing quite well as opposed to prior years, when it comes to local

sales,” he said. “The Canadian dollar is in our favour.” Boileau explains that by keeping purchases local, buyers are encouraging the city’s growth. “The largest employers in our community are small businesses,” he added. “By buying locally during the holiday season, we can make sure that they will expand and grow.” He also thinks that although online sales are popular, customers prefer to buy from actual shops. “People buy online when they want a specific thing that might not be availa- ble here in town,” he admitted. “But I think for the majority of shopping, they do it locally.” With the holiday season well underway,

most Cornwall stores are hoping for residents to cross their front doors and browse their merchandise. The Cornwall Square welcomes hundreds of shoppers hourly. In an effort to attract even more spenders, the shopping centre has organized several events, such as story time with Mrs. Claus. Money is like blood Economics author David Boyle suggests that money is like blood. “It needs to keep moving around in order to keep the local economy going,” he suggested. He also explains that some local econo- mies are suffering not because of the amount

We hear it on the radio and on television, “shop locally and encourage your neigh- bourhood businesses”. But just what sort of impact does spending your money outside of town mean for the community? Each year, Canadians spend more than $1500 over the holiday season, according to a survey by the Bank of Montreal (BMO). In addition, online transactions account for 30 per cent of national shopping, consumers spending upwards of $500 on theWorldWide Web.

of money being spent, but by where it goes. “When money is spent at big supermar- kets and online retailers, it flows out like a wound.” By buying locally, residents can make sure the money they spend will more than likely be reinvested in their communities. A research by the Institute for Local Self- Reliance outlines that “for every $100 spent at a locally owned store, $45 remains in the local economy, compared with about $13 per $100 spent at a big box store...’’. Lock it or lose it But holiday shopping can sometimes attract thefts. That’s why the Cornwall Community Police Service encourages mo- torists and passengers to lock their doors, when it comes to their vehicles and valuables left in plain view. The Cornwall Community Police Service is participating in the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police’s (OACP) annual Lock It OR Lose It Campaign. The campaign is a crime prevention program that encourages drivers and passengers to take precautions to protect their vehicles and vehicle contents from theft, particularly during the holiday season but also throughout the year. “Thieves know that an unlocked vehicle is an open invitation to crime. So is leaving your valuables in plain sight,” said Staff Sergeant Brian Snyder “This is a busy time of the year. It’s easy to be distracted and leave your ve- hicle unlocked or valuables in your car. Take extra time to lock it down.” During the campaign, police officers and Special Constables examine parked vehicles

Local purchases ensure that the Optimist and Octagon Club of Cornwall can thrive, during the Christmas season. Some of their members run a gift wrap station at the Cornwall Square. “During the beginning of the month, we wrap around 200 to 300 gifts a day,” explained Gaétan Simard. Pictured are Gérald Mayer and André Vigeant, two members of the Optimist Club of Cornwall, who dedicate several hours to shoppers who decide to spend their money locally.

to confirm they are locked and that no va- luables have been left in plain view. Officers place a small notice on vehicles checked indicating what safety precautions were ne- glected and offer simple prevention tips for drivers to protect their vehicles against theft.

The notices also congratulate drivers who have secured their vehicle. Motorists and passengers are urged not to keep personal documents such as vehicle ownership, liability pink slips, credit card invoices, or other documents containing

personal information in their vehicles. Identity thieves are looking for such docu- ments so they can assume identities, se- cure credit card accounts, lease vehicles for export, and even take out amortgage against victims’ properties without their knowledge.


Chaque vie est précieuse

Le 21 novembre dernier, L’École secondaire publique L’Héritage a eu l’honneur d’accueillir Joëlle Adler, humanitaire engagée à réinventer des modèles durables de l’entrepreneuriat. En 2005, après le décès de son mari, elle a fondée OneXOne, un organisme adhérant à la philosophie que chaque vie est précieuse et que tout individu peut choisir de faire la différence dans la vie de quelqu’un d’autre. La mission de OneXOne est d’améliorer la vie des enfants au Canada, aux États-Unis et à travers le monde entier. L’accent est mis sur les piliers de l’alimentation et la nutrition, la santé, l’eau, l’éducation et le jeu. Les élèves ont échangé avec elle au sujet de leurs expériences de prélèvement de fonds, de collecte de denrées, de programmes de sensibilisation à la violence, de leurs visites aux centres d’aînés et de leurs projets personnels. Elle s’est dite éblouie par l’esprit altruiste et l’ouverture d’esprit chez les élèves.

Cornwall Transit’s vehicle fleet has been enhanced with the acquisition of two new fully-accessible Handi-Transit buses. The two new buses from Creative Carriage Ltd. arrived in November and the maintenance staff at Cornwall Transit has been busy preparing them for the road by adding the familiar blue and white stripes and installing fare boxes, bus radios, antennas and other equipment. The new buses have replaced two 1997 Handi-Transit buses and they offer a variety of accessibility features such as yellow stanchions, wide doors and large ramps, no-skid flooring, easy-reach stop bell signals and wheelchair restraints. A typical Handi-Transit bus travels about 35,000 kilometres in a year and the service itself provides an average of 41,000 passenger trips annually. “These new buses will serve Cornwall residents well for years to come,” said committee chair Ron Bonneville. Pictured are Gay Sullivan, Linda Varga, Kara Seguin, Len Tapp, Ian Larkin, Ron Bonneville, Rick Lapierre, Manon Levesque, Councillor Elaine MacDonald, Jean Marcil and Sara White.

Tu es sans emploi?

Tu as terminé tes études?

L’ACÉPO pour la création d’une nouvelle université franco-ontarienne L’Association des conseils scolaires des écoles publiques de l’Ontario (ACÉPO) soutient la création d’une nouvelle université de langue française ontarienne. Elle se joint à l’Alliance communautaire pour une Université franco-ontarienne (ACUFO) et rappelle qu’il est indispensable que la nouvelle institution universitaire soit gérée par et pour les francophones. « Une nouvelle université provinciale franco-ontarienne sera d’une grande aide pour freiner l’assimilation, la perte d’élèves vers le système d’éducation anglophone et pour offrir un plus grand choix de programmes en français. Elle permettra de créer un lieu de recherche, d’innovation et de rayonnement pour tous les Ontariens d’expression française, qu’ils soient nouvellement arrivés ou installés ici depuis des générations », a déclaré Denis Labelle, président de l’ACÉPO. Rappelons qu’une demande avait été faite à la première ministre de l’Ontario, le 10 février 2015, afin de nommer un conseil des gouverneurs transitoire dans le but d’assurer la mise sur pied de cette université d’ici 2018. – Alexandra Montminy Les ateliers d’acrobatie InVivo ont fait fureur le trois décembre dernier, à l’ É cole secondaire publique L’Héritage.

L’atelier d’acrobatie se déroule en deux heures, le temps donné au corps pour se réchauffer. Les instructeurs enseignent d’abord les règles de sécurité ainsi que le rôle de chacun des participants. Les participants sont invités à effectuer quelques mouvements de base de l’acro-sport. Par la suite, les participants font des petites compétitions amicales et montent des pyramides en équipe afin de développer leur sens de leadership. À la fin, une pyramide de groupe est montée.

Local woman wins big money

Elizabeth Hickey of Cornwall is living her dreams to the max after winning a $333,353.40 prize in the November 6 Lotto Max draw.

She shared a $1 million Maxmillions prize with two tickets sold in other provinces. She also won $20 for matching

3 of 7 numbers plus the bonus number on another selection. Since its launch in September 2009,

Ontario Lotto Max players have won over $2.3 billion in prizes, including 42 jackpot wins and 275 winning Maxmillions tickets from all across the province. The winning ticket was purchased at Olco on Highway 2 in Cornwall.

Upper Canada district schools will have a new curriculum plan for their special education programs. The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) approved its 2015 Special Education Plan during the Sept. 9 board of trustees session. The 51-page document covers policy guidelines ranging from stu- dent placement to staffing levels suggested to meet the district goals. Valerie Allen, program superintendent, told trustees that the report also deals with the current drop in provincial government support funding for special education pro- grams.This termwill see «a slight decrease» in staff assigned to special education, noted Allen, but there should be «minimal impact» on service to students and their families. «The staffing reflected in the report,» stated Allen, «shows minimal impact in the area of school and classroom special education teachers, and a consistent level of educational assistant support within our schools. Schools are still supported by a

number of specialized professionals and paraprofessionals, such as psychologists and speech language pathologists.» The report noted that this term, the UCDSB will have the 580-full-time-equi- valent staff providing special education programming. That number includes 338 school-based educational assistants, 10 special education teachers for the Section 23 program, 92 elementary learning resource coaches, 57 secondary learning resource coaches, 10 speech language assistants, and eight itinerant student support workers, who will go from school to school on assignments. Also noted in the report is a district philo- sophy that promotes «early intervention» to help students who are struggling to succeed, along with information on types of student issues like learning disabilities or language impairment, which the special education program tries to address. There is also in- formation on how students can make use of assistance technology.

The world of craft beer expanding in Eastern Ontario


Although hundreds upon hundreds of brands flood the market each year, only a small fraction of them, a whole 5%, are craft beers.These aremade by small local brewe- ries that pride themselves on the care and work they put into creating flavourful beers. “The strength of Ontario Craft Brewers is based on a passion to rekindle and keep alive the spirit of traditional brewing,” ex- plains the Ontario Craft Brewers website. “Throughout history, breweries have been an integral part of their local communities and

the beer produced has reflected the pride, passion, and personality of the brewer and the community.” Eastern Ontario is home to several small breweries, including Cassel Brewery in Casselman and Beau’s in Vankleek Hill. In addition, two new breweries will soon be opening in Embrun. Closer to home, Rurban Brewery will soon join the region’s brewery family. One step into the microbrewery, who has yet to offi- cially open its Cumberland Street location,

and it’s easy to see just how busy owner Andy Rorabeck truly is. “It’s half science half black art,” he admit- ted jokingly, managing a smile. “I can spend 10 to 12 hours a day here.” As he checks a big tub containing a liquid he calls wheat sugar, he turns some knobs in one direction. “My background in science has really helpedme,” the retired science teacher said. “It has to do a lot with microbiology.” The many big, stainless steel containers

It’s adored by some, loathed by others. Yet beer plays quite an important factor in the Eastern Ontario economy. Beer is the world’s most widely consumed alcoholic beverage, and the third-most po- pular drink overall, after water and tea. It is thought by some to be the oldest fermented beverage. It is sold in bottles and cans and in pubs and bars and is available on draught.

Some groceries to soon sell beer Lovers of the beverage can rejoice for the Ontario government announced, on November 18, that 13 grocers in the province will now sell the alcoholic beverage on their shelves, starting in December. Among the selected retailers are included Coppa’s Fresh, the Galleria Supermarket, HanahreuemMart Inc., J & B LaMantia Ltd., Loblaws Inc., Longo Brothers Fruit Market Inc., Metro Ontario Inc., Michael Angelos Market Place Inc., Pino’s Get Fresh, Sobeys Capital Incorporated, Starsky Fine Foods Hamilton Inc. and Wal-Mart Canada Corp. Hopefuls will have to apply for a li- cense to the Ontario Alcohol and Gaming Commission to obtain the required per- mission.The appeal process for candidates remains open, even if retailers have already been selected, because if some do not meet the requirements, other grocers could be granted the right to sell beer. Retailers will have to undergo certain measures surrounding the sale of alcohol, such as purchase limits and limitation of sale hours. “Eventually, up to 450 grocery stores could sell beer,” explained the province’s of- ficial website. “The province has established specific criteria for eligibility and allocation of grocery store authorizations to achieve fair representation of grocers and ensure distribution across Ontario. Defined eli- gibility criteria and competitive allocation ensure fairness and best value.” Other specific requirements include that beer sold in grocery

surrounding him all have names on them, etched in big black letters. “Those are the names of people who have passed away but that would’ve loved to have something to do with this.” Themicrobrewery has been offering their beers to several local restaurants. “We offer four beers per season, four seasons of the year,” explained owner Andy Rorabeck. “It’s a takeoff on a traditional German seasonal rotation of beers, which makes sense given our four distinct seasons, and lets us pay some Canadian homage to each. If there are enough requests for a particular beer, we’ll make it.This is about making the good stuff, and having fun doing it, too.” Rorabeck’s beers are available at Esca Gourmet Pizza, Truffles, Jet Set Pub, Schnitzels, the Canadian Forces School of Aerospace Control Operations and Table 21. “They (the restaurants) have been very kind to me,” explained the brewery owner. He says the community’s response has also been tremendous. “We’ve had great fee- dback from the community,” he explained. “We nearly opened a brewery inMorrisburg some time ago. We decided to have it in Cornwall and we’re really happy with our decision.” The man, who owns a

farm with his wife and kids in Green Valley, ex- plained that he wanted the brewery set in the city. “If we would’ve made it on the farm, it would’ve been too far for everyone,” he admitted, pointing to the front door, where countless cars aremaking their way down Cumberland Street. “Here, we have so much traffic, it’s great. We wanted people to be able to come in and have a beer.”

stores cannot exceed 7.1 per cent alcohol by volume and that it will only be availa-

ble in a six-pack or less, up to 750mL per container. In addition,

staff selling and handling beer in grocery stores will

have to be a minimum of 18 years of age and be fully trai- ned to ensure Ontario’s stan- dards for social responsibility are always met. The move follows the pro- vincial Liberal go- vernment’s April announcement, sta- ting that they wished to implement the sale of beer in more than 450 grocery stores.

L’activité physique peut faire diminuer le stress du temps des Fêtes

Cornwall hockey fans once again showed just how

generous our community is

Aussi festive que la période des Fêtes peut être, c’est aussi un moment de l’année qui fait grimper le niveau de stress. Toutefois, une façon simple mais déterminante de diminuer le stress est de réserver du temps pour l’activité physique dans votre horaire. Vous pensez ne pas avoir de temps? Bien d’autres pensent comme vous. En effet, dans le tourbillon d’activités du temps des Fêtes, l’exercice arrive souvent au bas de la liste des choses à faire. Pourtant, l’activité physique apporte une série de bienfaits qui méritent qu’on y consacre du temps. D’abord, en plus de ses nombreux avantages pour la santé, l’activité physique est une excellente façon d’éliminer le stress et elle peut vous donner un regain d’énergie grandement utile en cette période de l’année. Il n’est pas nécessaire de se réserver beaucoup de temps pour l’activité physique. Bien que 150 minutes d’activité physique soient recommandées chaque semaine, ce temps peut être divisé en périodes de 10 ou 15 minutes si cela convient mieux à votre horaire. Cela peut être aussi simple que marcher d’un bon pas ou jouer dehors avec les enfants. Voici d’autres idées permettant d’inclure l’activité physique à votre horaire du temps des Fêtes : - Allez quotidiennement faire une marche en famille pour admirer les lumières de Noël dans votre quartier. - Rencontrez vos amis dans le cadre d’une marche rapide plutôt que pour prendre un café et un dessert. - Stationnez-vous plus loin des magasins quand vous faites vos emplettes de Noël. C’est une façon simple d’inclure un peu plus de marche à votre programme. - Rassemblez des parents et amis pour aller patiner, glisser ou faire du ski de fond plutôt que pour manger. - Enfin, n’oubliez pas de prendre des légumes et des fruits dans les buffets des différentes réceptions. En mangeant des repas équilibrés, vous maintiendrez votre énergie tout au long de la période des Fêtes. Pour plus de conseils sur l’activité physique et un mode de vie sain, appelez le Bureau de santé de l’est de l’Ontario au 613-933-1375 ou au 1-800-267-7120.

But a simple, key way to keep stress at bay is to fit some physical activity into your schedule. Think you don’t have time? You’re not alone. During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, exercise often falls to the bottom of the to-do list. But physical activity brings a host of benefits that make it worth finding the time. For starters, in addition to its many health benefits, physical activity is a great stress buster, and can give you a much-needed boost of energy at this busy time of year. Getting some physical activity doesn’t have to be a huge time commitment. While 150 minutes of physical activity are recommended each week, that amount can be broken up into chunks of 10 or 15 minutes if that works better with your schedule. It can be as simple as taking a brisk walk, or playing outdoors with the kids. Here are some more ideas for fitting physical activity into your holiday schedule: - Take the whole family out for a daily stroll to enjoy the holiday lights in your neighbourhood. - Meet friends for a power walk rather than visiting over coffee and dessert. - Park further away from the store when doing your holiday shopping. It’s an easy way to work in a bit of extra walking. - Organize parties around skating, tobogganing, or cross-country skiing instead of around food. - And finally, don’t skip the veggies and fruit at the party buffet. Eating balanced meals will help you stay energized throughout the holiday season.

during the Teddy Bear Toss at the Colts game on November 26. Roughly, 300 stuffed toys were collected and they will be distributed to children in time for the Christmas season! Fans are encouraged to bring their teddy bears and toss onto the ice after the Colts score their first goal of the game or at the end of the first period. All teddy bears are distributed to local children. Pictured are David Murphy and Hugh Primeau holding up one of the larger donations!

Lots of books for East Front

The East Front Public School was the recipient of $2,300, donated by Coles in Cornwall, through the parent company Indigo Adopt a School program. In addition to the amount, the school received another $5000 from Coles. Andrea Major, the store’s manager, explained that so much money was raised this year that every Adopt a School recipient would receive more. Julia Main, librarian with the East Front Public School, has therefore been quite busy shopping, in order to fill her school’s library. The Indigo Adopt a School program takes place throughout the country, and Coles at Cornwall Square has been participating for quite some years. Last year’s books recipient was Gladstone Public School, which will be closing at the end of the 2015-16 school year. Students from both facilities will be moving on to the new school opening at the intersection of Marleau Avenue and Nick Kaneb Drive.

VIRGO It would be a good idea to carefully monitor your diet prior to the holiday season. You may already be having some stomach problems this week. LIBRA There are constant comings and goings and the phone won’t stop ringing. Your friends may request your presence at the various holiday parties that are coming up. SCORPIO You have thousands of ideas for the holi- days or for gifts. It’s vital that you prepare a budget to see if you can afford it or if you’ll have to tighten your belt instead.
