CAS makes some noise to launch campaign Rachel Daigneault, executive director of the Children’s Aid Society of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengary, cuts the ribbon on cue from Kimly Thivierge of the CAS, at the microphone, to officially launch the CAS’s October awareness campaign with help from children attending the launch event at Lamoureux Park Saturday, while supporters and officials look on.

An October “Break the Silence” campaign to raise awareness of child abuse got off to a bang at Lamoureux Park in Cornwall on Saturday. Campaign supporters, urged by Kimly Thieverge of the local Childrens Aid Society, simultaneously burst paper bags handed out at the event in a symbolic breaking of the silence. The bag-popping by 433 participants was one of the highlights of an action-packed event which stretched through the after- noon and into the evening featuring live music, children’s activities a free Benson barbecue and local celebrities plunging in a dunk tank. The launch event attended by about 1,000 people officially kicked off a month-long awareness campaign spearheaded by the Children’s Aid Society of the United Coun- ties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengary. The campaign was officially opened around noon Saturday with speeches from a number of CAS supporters followed by a ribbon cutting on the bandshell stage. “We can’t do it alone. We need the com- munity to help us,”said CAS executive direc- tor Rachel Daigneault. “Each time you use your voice against child abuse, you help us and you help a child,” she said. Tabitha Pilon, herself a foster child, said the CAS is often regarded the“bad guy”, but said it is often “the best thing that can hap- pen” to children suffering from abuse and neglect. “I’m incredibly thankful for all the doors

Denis Beaudry, general manager of the Caisse Populaire de Cornwall, offered inspi- rational based on his own success story as a foster child. He urged foster children to set goals for every week, every month and every year in order to achieve success. If they do that, anything is possible, he said. “You always think it is going to be difficult to do it, but there’s always a way to make it possible,” he said. “Even though you are in foster care, it doesn’t mean you won’t suc- ceed in life . . . everyone can succeed.” Beaudry’s comments were echoed by city councillor Syd Gardiner, representing

home. We are going to stay within the ru- ral communities first. Once we get enough people on side, we will branch out.” He said it is the “first time ever, anywhere in Canada” that a municipality has voted to uphold the right of free expression for its residents. “We have a constitution, charter of rights and freedoms, that everyone ignores, takes for granted. We’ve never had a municipality, or a township … or city, stand up and actu- ally vote on a resolution to pass a bylaw to protect freedom of expression,” he said. “It really is, it’s going to resound. It’s just the beginning.” In a rambling address prior to the vote, Galganov touched on a conversation he had prior to the meeting with local MP Guy Lauzon, read a passage from a book de- scribing the heroic exploits of his father in the Second World War, before turn- ing his attention to members of council. “Now I understand not all our council members are supportive of this as well,” he said with a degree of incredulity. “If it’s not our mandate, whose is it?” he questioned. “We’re watching our country fall apart.” Galganov also took great pains to frame his proposal as a matter of freedom of ex- pression, not a French-versus-English issue. “We are talking about rights, not language,” he stressed at the beginning of his address. But as he wound up his speech, he said he “can’t fathom” how the township would refuse to pass a law to guarantee freedom expression. Please see “LANGUAGE”: Page 7

Freedom of expression is a charter right in Canada. At the urging of Howard Gal- ganov, the township of South Stormont has made it municipal law. Council members, in front of more than 200 people in the township council cham- bers in Long Sault, unanimously passed a motion allowing township residents to ex- press themselves in the language of their choice. “Today we’re making history,” said Mayor Bryan McGillis prior to last Wednesday eve- ning’s vote, promising the new law will al- low people to erect signs in any language without restriction. minated with a standing ovation from the overwhelming majority of supporters in the gallery. Galganov, speaking after the vote in South Stormont, said he will launch a free- dom of expression campaign directed at municipalities across Ontario. “There’s over 400 (municipalities) in On- tario. I intend to go after all of them – one at a time,” he told reporters. He would not reveal which municipality is next on his list, but said he would “short- ly” target a municipality close to his home base. “We’re going to stay relatively close to The motion was passed after a pas- sionate speech by the Williamstown language-rights ac- tivist Howard Gal- ganov, which cul-

We’re talking about being creative, let’s be creative. May- be we already have somebody in the sys- tem -- that is what this report would likely identify.” Councillor Gerry Samson also advocated using existing personnel for fill the role of events co-ordinator. “We do have an events co-ordinator, as far as I’m concerned, and what I understand (that person is) at the complex. And I am wondering why there aren’t activities hap- pening every month.” “We’re losing money at the complex, we’re losing money at the Benson Centre, I can’t see how we can afford to hire some- one else.”

Cornwall needs an events co-ordinator to help quarterback the numerous vol- unteer-run festivals in the city, says a city councillor. Councillor Glen Grant, whose proposal will be evaluated over the coming weeks by city administration, said festival organizers need help to wade through the daunting approval process for events. A report requested from administration is expected to identify the need for an events co-ordinator, as well as a job description and potential funding partners. “Our biggest festival had a major turn over in volunteers last year because they get burned out and this events co-ordi- nator can be of major assistance to them,” Grant said during last Monday night’s city council meeting. He said there are a number of organiza- tions interested in covering the cost of a newly-created events co-ordinator posi- tion. “I think there are a number of partners

“if it’s not going to cost the municipality anything, I have no problem with that.” Councillor Denis Thibault warned coun- cil not to put any “undo pressure” on city administration, already facing a $600,000 budget shortfall and the loss of $2 million
City tax target too rich Cornwall’s Community Action Group is not happy with a three per cent tax increase proposed for the 2013 city budget. City council set the maximum tax target during a meeting last Mon- day. But the Community Action Group, in a press release issued this afternoon, is recommending the city increase taxes by no more than two per cent. “TheCommunityActionGroup feels very strongly that some difficult choiceswill need tobemade inorder to keep the 2013 tax increase be- low twoper cent aswe have seen in the past fewyears, or evenbetter a zero percent increase,”reads a press release from the group. “CAG sees growth of the tax base compromised with a three per cent tax increase, i.e. short-term gain, with no benefits for long-term growth.” The CAGhas been lobbying city hall tomake its tax rates“more com- petitive”over the past few years to encourage growth in the city. “The choices seem clear to the CAG, change is required and without it we run the risk in the long term of remaining as we are, which is not an option that themembers of the CAGwould support,”reads the release. The city is already facing a $600,000budget shortfall for this year and the loss of $2 million in provincial social services funding, prompting a warning from Councillor Denis Thibault last Monday to not put any more“undo pressure”on administration. The chair of the city’s budget steering committee, Denis Carr, did not reply to an email fromThe Journal for comment. CAG representatives were also not available for comment. The action group listed a number of actions it wants taken by city council: a list of priorities that council follows at all times; fiscal respon- sibility at all levels of city operations; an annual zero per cent tax in- crease target; and the continuation in the investment in infrastructure based on a long-termplan. The group also wants budget constraints at all levels of city opera- tions, strong management mandates with benchmarks for council to track progress and it wants the city to work with neighboring munici- palities to share services and programs “The problem we have is a higher than average property tax rate combined with a lower than average household income.”

“It was recommended by the neighbouring municipalities that the name ‘Cornwall and the Coun- ties’ be used rather than ‘Greater Cornwall Area’, as it would be con- sistent with the brand currently be- ing used by Cornwall and Seaway Valley Tourism,” Boileau wrote. Administration approached se- nior levels of government for ap- proval but was advised that only single tier or lower tier municipali- ties are permitted population signs along the provincial highways. The main source of opposition was the province’s transportation ministry, according to Boileau. “It is therefore recommended that the city of Cornwall continue
Had the plan been approved, the city would have been able to post a population total of 111,164 on signs along major highways entering the city. In- stead, they must stick with the current figure of roughly 46,000 residents. “I was extremely disappoint- ed when this motion was shot down because it originated from business people, a real estate lawyer who mentioned businesses bypass Cornwall because our population base hasn’t grown in the past 20 years,” fumed city councillor Syd Gardiner.
Cornwall city councillor Syd Gardiner is upset that a plan to boost the city’s pop- ulation numbers has been derailed by the province’s transportation ministry.
“When you are trying to open a business and you want to sell a product, you need the population base and you want growth,” he complained at Monday night’s meeting of Cornwall city council. The United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glen- garry and Cornwall share numerous services, Gardiner said. As well, the proposed partnership was recognized by South Stormont and South Glengarry“and they were supportive of this motion.” According to a report from Mark Boileau, economic

The fact that the city’s plan to inflate its population numbers was derailed by the provincial transportation ministry grated on Gardiner. “Also what is disappointing is the final decision rest- ed on MTO … which in my opinion has no idea what the needs are of small municipalities,” he fumed at last Monday’s council meeting.

Since 2006, approximately $3.1 million in assistance has helped to generate over $13 million in private sector investment in the city. “I would like to commend Shawn Malo- ney and his team for their ongoing commit- ment to the people of Cornwall,” said Mayor Bob Kilger. “This significant reinvestment not only creates a fantastic new home for Miller Hughes Ford, but it is also a concrete vote of confidence in Downtown Cornwall.” As part of the construction, Miller Hughes removed the old body shop building and separate Used Car centre to make way for more customer parking and clean sight- lines. This greatly beautified the look of the downtown care and fell in line with the community enhancement project “Heart of the City”. “The incentives available from our Mu- nicipality were a major factor in keeping our new facility where it has been for the last 56 years,” said Ellery Maloney, former dealer- ship principle. “Plus with the help of these incentives, we were able to totally clean up any environ- mental concerns.” “Miller Hughes has always given back to the communities it serves,” added Shawn Maloney. “We believe our success has stemmed from not only having great products to sell, but having and keeping great employees,” Maloney continued. “When your people are happy then they offer great service and we end up with satis- fied customers. It’s a great way to run a busi- ness.” Commerce and a member of Team Corn- wall. “Moving to Cornwall was the best deci- sion we ever made,” said Hargreaves. “The cost of living is so affordable that within a few years we were able to save enough money to buy the franchise.” The success of the Cornwall restaurant under the watchful leadership of Harg- reaves has not gone unnoticed at Kelsey’s. The Hargreaves were recently recognized at having the best increase in year to year guest counts over the entire chain of res- taurants. “I like to think our success is because we operate like a true neighbourhood pub,” said Hargreaves. “That means things like live music fea- turing local artists, supporting local sports teams andmaking sure our customers know that they’re appreciated and welcome. “Our staff are fantastic and a big part of that equation.”
As part a vital part of Cornwall’s urban core, Miller Hughes Ford Lincoln has joined the revitalization of the city by rejuvenating their landmark dealership. A trusted and respected part of the com- munity since 1956, Miller Hughes Ford Lin- coln is set to enter a new era with fellow Pitt Street businesses. “When we were considering whether we would move to a new location or renovate the existing dealership, we listened to what our customers had to say,”said Shawn Malo- ney, dealer principle at Miller Hughes Ford Lincoln. “The response was overwhelmingly in fa- vour for keeping the dealership where it is – in the heart of the city.” “It was obvious that the convenience and ease of doing business with us close to where our customers live and work is im- portant to them.” Construction began in June 2011 on the new Ford Millennium Facility program, which enhances the dealership with the addition of a Service Drive Thru, premium lounge and Lincoln showroom. This now represents the number one sales position that Ford has enjoyed in Canada over the last three years. Ford Motor Company of Canada, is com- mitted to introducing more sustainable choices into the design and renovation pro- cess, and increasing the positive impact be- ing made by dealers across the country. “The program results in a long-term re- duction in individual dealership’s carbon footprint”, said Mike Herniak, eastern mar- ket general manager for Ford of Canada. “By participating in the Millennium pro-

Miller-Hughes Ford is one of the 150- plus projects that have received support through Cornwall’s community improve- ment programs, which are designed to encourage and assist property owners to “Rick McNabb, president of Kelsey’s, was here to check out the restaurant and he was really impressed with how the photographs celebrate Cornwall,”said Hargreaves.“It may end up being adopted as a best practice throughout the company.” The complete renovation project includes new furniture, new flooring, new millwork, new light fixtures, new HD TVs, and a new fireplace and granite bar top. The restaurant was closed while the work was done over a week period. “Closing the restaurant for a week left us with a fridge full of perishable food,” said Wendy Hargreaves, which the restaurant donated to the Agape Centre.

Language shouldn’t trump skills: McGillis
Line up for free flu shots from EOHU Fall is here and winter is not far away. Now is the time to plan for that flu shot.

The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) launches its annual free flu clinics in mid- October. Flyers go out in the mail soon list- ing where and when clinics will be. The de- tails are also available online at www.eohu. ca. “The best protection against the flu is to get the seasonal flu shot,” stated Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, EOHU chief medical officer, in a press release. “It’s free, safe, and available for everyone aged six months and older.” The annual flu shot is a combined vaccine designed to deal with several varieties of influenza, including the new H1N1 variant. Ontario’s chief medical health officer, Dr. Ar- lene King, has confirmed in a news release of one H1N1 case in southwestern Ontario.
“If you think it stops just with language, I have news for you, that’s where it begins.” South Stormont council has been at the centre of the area’s language controversy ever since it voted to withhold funding to Cornwall Community Hospital’s revitaliza- tion campaign over the hospital’s bilingual- ism-focused hiring policy. If bilingualism is required, it should be based on the percentage of francophones in the community, McGillis said after the meeting. “They should be hiring based on that. It should not be language over qualifications. It’s scary when you think, this is for medical care.”
Proper hygiene habits, including regular hand-washing using soap or an alcohol- based hand cleanser, are urged as the best prevention against flu infection. Peo- ple should also remember to cover their mouths and noses when they cough or sneeze. Flu shots are recommended for certain groups of people classed as a higher risk to both catch and suffer from infection. They include: children age six months to five years, seniors aged 65 or older, people with chronic medical conditions or whose immune systems are weakened for other reasons, and people who are obese. Flu shots are also recommended for caregiv-
The first EOHU flu clinic is in Casselman, Oct. 16, 2 to 8 p.m., at the J.R. Brisson Com- plex. Next is Cornwall, Oct. 17, 2 to 8 p.m., at the Cornwall Civic Complex. The Oct. 18 clinic is in Rockland at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Giroux Street with another one that day in Cornwall at the Seaway Valley Community Health Cen- tre on Pitt Street. Other clinics are sched- uled through October and November in all major communities throughout Eastern Ontario. Anyone attending a flu clinic should bring at least one piece of photo I.D. with them. More information on the clinics is available by phone, toll-free, to 1-800-267-7120.

Give a little love to your teacher
Send an e-card: These days most parents are in contact with their children’s teachers by e-mail. This time, send them a message that will brighten their day. The website www.5oct.org has a few e-card selections just for this purpose. If you are tech-savvy, Tweet a nice thought about him or her! This is especially fun to do in collaboration with a teenager. Make a card: With the help of your child, decorate a card and include a thoughtful message from both of you. Send in a special treat: Unless your child’s school has any policies against food gifts, this is a great opportu- nity to bake Teacher a special batch of muffins or send in a basket of fresh fruit. It can be a gift to take home or to share with the class.
If you are a parent, you might often hear grumbles from your children about too much homework, not enough free time, or too many red Xs on a corrected assignment. World Teachers’ Day is a time to get them thinking instead about what monumental efforts their teachers make every day. If you ask your child to make a list of what they appreciate about their teacher, it may just change their view. On World Teachers’ Day, take the opportunity to thank your child’s teacher personally for their com- mitment, creativity, and patience with your child. Teaching can seem like a thankless job sometimes, as both parents and children alike usually only offer a teacher feedback when things are not going well. Here a few thoughtful gestures that can remind teachers that their efforts don’t go unnoticed:

THE LUCKIEST SIGNS THIS WEEK: LEO, VIRGO, AND LIBRA.
ARIES No matter what type of negotiation you’re involved in, take care to rely on exact information. Relying on your impressions will cause you more confusion than anything else. TAURUS You may get involved in some kind of sports activity. Your competitive spirit will take over and coming in second will be out of the question. You will enjoy all the glory you worked for. GEMINI If you’re feeling overtired, it means, par- adoxically, that you need to get more exercise. Adopting a new lifestyle will give you a lot more energy. CANCER Stress isn’t necessarily a negative thing. It could provide you with the necessary motivation to achieve some brilliant exploits. Schedule some time away from work so you can balance out the different areas of your life. LEO People with this sign often thirst for power. You were born to be a leader and to man- age your own empire. This week many of the necessary elements to start your own small business will fall into place. VIRGO A vacation looms on the horizon. Even if it doesn’t take place for a few months, now’s the time to start preparing — perhaps by getting a new passport. LIBRA You might witness an unfair remark that causes a bit of a stir around you. You will have an important role to play in restor- ing harmony. SCORPIO You find it hard to tolerate any kind of injus- tice and you tend to try and resolve unjust situations by yourself. While you play the parts of policeman and judge in one such situation this week, a bit of tact will allow you to manage things more successfully. SAGITTARIUS You will work with a great deal of energy and thoroughness to come to an agree- ment or sign a contract. Even if you suffer a lot of anxiety and sleeplessness, you will be extremely successful in the end. CAPRICORN You may be given a position of authority at work. For the sake of your health it is important to learn how to control your emotions and to express them appropri- ately when you need to. AQUARIUS You will see some almost instantaneous results with a new diet. You’ll find this very satisfying and you’ll be very proud of yourself. PISCES You’ll be able to express your feelings with tact and integrity to family members with whom you have something to settle. There will be a bit of nostalgia in the air.

Colts end losing skid
leader Roman Ammirato also netted two, including the eventual game winner early in the third period. Edwardson was solid in net with 26 saves on 29 shots to move the Colts above the .500 mark to a 5-4 record. The Colts now have 10 points, good enough for third place in the Robinson Division, one point ahead of Brockville. Carleton Place, who trounced the Colts at home 9-4 on Thursday, and the Bears lead the Robinson Division with a league-lead- ing 14 points. The Colts, whose goaltending woes continued at home, were outscored 4-1 in the first period and 3-1 in the third for their third consecutive loss. Colts starting goalie Jordan Piccolino was chased from the crease just past the game’s halfway mark after letting in five goals on 26 shots. But his replacement, Matt Jenkins, did not fare any better with four goals on just 10 shots, opening the door for Picco- lino to return to close out the game. Michael Pontarelli led the scoring for the Colts with two goals. Also scoring was Marly Quince and Parker Krol. The Colts are back in action at the Ed Lumley Arena at 7:30 Thursday against the Cumberland Grads. The Colts head to Gloucester for a 7:30 p.m. tilt Friday versus the Rangers and then to Kanata on Sunday for a 7 p.m. start against the Stallions.

We’ll take the goalie behind door No. 3. That isn’t exactly how the Cornwall Colts chose their starting goalie Friday night, but it proved to be fortuitous. The Colts started James Edwardson be- tween the pipes against the Smiths Falls Bears and came away with a 4-3 win to end their three-game losing skid. Playing in the Bears’ barn, the Colts did not earn the victory the easy way. They lost Marly Quince, one of their top scorers, just 5:48 into the game on a checking from behind major and Stephen Johnson was tossed for the same infraction about three minutes later in a rough, penalty filled first period. The Colts extended their lead to three goals early in the third, but the Bears re- fused to go away quietly. They netted two goals in the span of four minutes to come within one goal of the Colts with 3:17 left in the game. To add even more drama, the Colts were saddled with too-many-men penalty with just 2:50 left in the tilt, but they managed to hang on for a much-needed victory. Michael Ponterelli continued his scoring ways with two for Cornwall. Colts scoring
