Hit and run driver arrested

OPP focuses on crime prevention

The Hawkesbury Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigated a motor vehicle colli- sion that occurred at the intersection of Highway 34 and Greenlane Road in Cham- plainwhere the driver of a vehicle involved had failed to remain at the scene of the collision. On Wednesday, November 4, police were called to investigate a motor vehicle

registered to a black Nissan instead of the black FordMustang involved in the incident. The suspect vehicle was later found by police travelling onHighway 417 at an exces- sive high rate of speed and once again, failed to stop for police. The black Ford Mustang had severe front end damages. Police were on the hunt of the suspect vehicle and its driver. The suspect was later identified as

collision. A vehicle had struck the side wall of a business building and a parked vehicle at the intersection of Highway 34 and Greenlane Road in Champlain. The suspect refused to wait for police and fled the scene of the collision, driving in a dangerous manner and at a high rate of speed with two passengers on board.

18-year-old Samuel Au- ger of St-Jacques Road in Embrun. Auger was arrested and charged the next day under the Criminal Code of Canada with Flight while Pursued by Peace Officer, Dangerous Ope- ration of Motor Vehicle, Assault of a Peace Offi- cer with a weapon, and two counts of Forcible Confinement. He was also charged under the

The Hawkesbury Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) wishes to remind residents that eve- ryone has a role in crime prevention and in reducing the potential of criminal acts. Whenever a theft is committed, there are always three components present, reminds the OPP: a criminal, an opportunity and a victim. Residents can discourage a thief from victimizing property by taking away opportu- nities or reducing them.This is where people can protect themselves most, adds the OPP. Another means of protecting property is to have good communications with neigh- bours. If something suspicious is seen, it is

important to write down the description of any suspicious persons, as well as themake, model, colour and license number of strange vehicles or vehicles passing by numerous times, suspiciously parked or constantly traveling alleyways. OPP ask people to call the police and other members of your neigh- bourhood immediately. Police remind residents that they can protect themselves by having good lighting, good lock security and let a trusted neigh- bour know when the house will be vacant for an extended period of time.

Direction of travel and description of the suspect vehicle was provided to police. He was then spotted driving dangerously in Hawkesbury. After dropping off both passengers in town, the suspect failed to stop for police and almost collided head on with a police cruiser and then clipped a second cruiser without causing damage before fleeing the scene once again. Policemanaged to obtain the license plate number of the suspect vehicle. The plate was attached to the wrong vehicle as it was

Highway Traffic Act with two counts of Fail to remain at the scene, and use of plates not authorized for vehicle. Further investigation revealed that the vehicle was not insured. As well as the other charges, Auger was also charged under the Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act ope- rating a motor vehicle without insurance. The set minimum fine for driving without insurance is $5000. Auger was later released and scheduled to appear in L’Orignal court onDecember 2.

School district and union ready to settle The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federa- tion (OSSTF) have a tentative deal ready for review and possible signing. If approved, the new contract will finish negotiations for the past year between the two sides. Terms of the new contract remain confi- dential until both the OSSTF members for the Upper Canada district and the UCDSB board of trustees have ratified the document. Contract negotiations continue between the UCDSB and the unions representing elementary school teachers, occasional teachers, and support staff. – Gregg Chamberlain

School board receives audit report Trustees for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) received good news during their October board meeting. The auditor’s report for the CDSBEO presented a positive pic- ture for the school district’s finances and operations during the 2014-2015 fiscal year. CDSBEO Education Director William J. Gartland noted that the report also provided district trustees and staff with guidelines for monitoring future expenses. But Gartland added the district had maintained its balanced budget, as the province demands, while still making good on special education program goals and also maintaining smaller class sizes in its elementary schools, thus allowing more one- on-one teaching time between instructors and students. – Gregg Chamberlain Anyone with information on Land’s whereabouts or who may have seen him is asked to call the police through the 911 system, the ROPE Squad, at 1-866-870-7673, or the CrimeStoppers toll-free confidential tips line at 1-800-222-8477. STEO prepares winter bus travel The Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) consortium is preparing for the arrival of winter. The group manages student busing services for the Catholic District School Board of Eas- tern Ontario and the Upper Canada District School Board. The STEO has sent out letters to parents of students in both districts updating them on the process for notices of bus cancellations due to inclement weather and/or hazardous road conditions. The STEO uses its own website, at www., and also radio and television notices to announce bus service cancellations or delays. STEO staff review weather forecasts every day before 2 p.m. for any foul weather alerts that could affect student transport and then notify bus contractors. Forecasts are reviewed again at 9:30 p.m. If storm, freezing rain or other weather problems are expected, the STEO calls Pelmorex/The Weather Network at 4:30 a.m and also a group of consulting contractors on road conditions for a final check. Information from police and municipal road crews is added to the data before making any cancellation decisions. The school district has the final decision on route cancellations, which are made by 5:45 a.m. as some buses begin driving at 6 a.m. Parents are advised to check both the STEO and their local school district website on a regular basis for bus service notices. – Gregg Chamberlain Photo ROPE Squad - Residents are asked to keep watch for a former inmate wanted for breach of parole. The Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement Squad (ROPE) has issued a notice about Matthew Land, 33, wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for breach of parole.

Vankleek Hill opens several homes to Christmas tour


People came out in droves to get a glimpse of some of the finest homes in VankleekHill all dressed up for Christmas at the annual Vankleek Hill Christmas Home Tour. Six homes were professionally decora- ted for the event that raises money for local charities and worthy causes. Each one was inspiringly decorated for the holidays giving visitors some great decorating ideas, not only for Christmas, but for every day. “The houses are just beautiful,” said CaroleMacLeod from Green Valley. “I’ve gotten some really good decorating ideas.” The Higginson home was one of the stops along the tour, all decked out with Christmas spirit. A table set for 16 by Rob McIntosh was in the main hall, with tickets available for a chance to win everything on the table. Ticket sales went toward the Arbor Gallery as well as Higginson Tower. The Higginson home is now home to the Arbor Gallery that showcases local and visiting artists work, and holds several events throughout the year. Shuttle buses carried visitors from one home to the next, as well as to Beau’s Brewe- ry for a taste and a tour. There were line ups

There were long line ups at some of the homes on the tours, but no one seemed tomind. People were chatting and getting to know one another discussing their favourite sites.

outside of the homes with people waiting to get in and see a glimpse of Christmas in each home. Some lines went right around the corner, but people didn’t seem tomind as the spirit was light and jovial. More than houses Other than visiting spectacular homes, there was plenty to do during the Christ-

mas Home Tour. A photo booth in a vintage sleigh was available for those who wanted to don luxurious capes, jackets and bonnets from the last century and pose with friends. The sleigh was provided by Ouimet Farms Adventures and the capes, bonnets and shawls were provided by Grace Clermont. Professional photographer Jan Amell took photos for those who wanted a souvenir of the day. Half the proceeds from the photo booth went to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). High Tea was offered at the Trillium Tea Room with three settings offering all kinds of tea, fruit, cheese, salad, choice of entrées and dessert finale and cookies. Some ladies visiting fromQuebec arrived donning their best hats for the occasion. The Knox Bell Choir performed at Knox Presbyterian Church in the afternoon, fol- lowed by coffee, tea, and sweets. Home- made fruitcake made by Dale Garvin was on sale at the Review office, with proceeds going towards Sacha’s Park. The Vankleek Hill Museum held a Quilt Show, showing off beautiful quilts made by local people, and a bake sale was going on on Main Street with proceeds going to St. Grégoire Church. St. John’s Anglican ChurchHall offered a lunch with soup, sandwiches, desserts, crafts and a bake table. Knox Presbyterian Church also offered a lunch with home-made soup, sandwiches, dessert, tea and coffee. The Trinity United Church had a breakfast with coffee, tea, muffins, breads, and biscotti, all home-made, and later in the day offered coffee, tea, home-made pies and desserts. The Vankleek Hill Farmers’ Market held their regular market with local foods, bread, meats, pickles, jams, jellies, soaps, soup, coffee, baked goods, treats andmuchmore. And the Vankleek Hill Vineyard, Vankleek Hill’s newest enterprise, offered a taste and visit of their beautiful location, all decorated for the holidays. Many of the vendors also set up shop just outside of the homes on the tour selling jams, chocolates, jewellery and more. The day was once again a great success with visitors from all over getting into the Christmas spirit.

The Christmas decorations on each of the homes on the tour were just beautiful.

Zu-Lou Tribe donates to Sacha’s Park

Finalist for $100,000

Aviva Grant

Louise Stephenson surprised Jackie and Jason Chenier with a cheque for $16,000, raised during the Zumba Fundraising event. “Despite the rain, you had a perfect day,” said ChamplainMayor Gary Barton. “We certainly are lucky to have people like you in our community.” Patricia Godin assisted in the fundraising efforts raising approximately one third of the funds herself. The Chenier’s were visibly moved by the donation. “That’s just amazing,” said Jason. “Thank you so much.”

Sacha’s Park has been announced as a finalist for a $100,000 grant from the Aviva Community Fund.The universally accessible playground project, slated to be built in L’Orignal, will be in the running for a portion of the million dollars Aviva is giving away to worthy causes from across the country onDecember 2, 2015. Organizers for the park said the project finished at the top voted idea of the over 400 submitted from across Canada. Votes for Sacha’s Park were more than 14,000, 2,000more than their competitor. Although finishing the vote in first place doesn’t guarantee a win, Chenier explains that the project is well placed as it goes to the judging round where it will be evaluated against the other finalists.

The students are busy planning several fundraisers for their trip including a poinset- tia sale, hosted by Jade Gardens in Vankleek Hill, and are discussing other ideas to raise money for this trip of a lifetime. “We will be doing a lot of fundraising between now and then,” said Natalie Kouao, teacher in charge of the trip. “We will be bagging groceries, and perhaps a talent show. We are still working out all the details.” The tour will depart on April 5, 2017, and return on April 13. A tour director will meet the group in London where the students

will visit several landmarks and historical monuments such as theThames River, Tra- falgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and more. The group will continue on to Vimy by trainwhere they will take part in ceremonies and exclusive events to commemorate the 100 th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge. While there, the students will learn about the Vimy trenches, tunnels, and visit amemorial museum. “For many students, this will be a life changing trip,” exclaimed Kouao. “This is an amazing opportunity, and the kids are really enthusiastic.” The students will also visit Paris on their trip where they will discover several historical sites such as the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Seine River on a cruise, to name a few. “I am so excited,” said Allison Rowlands, one of the VCI students who will be going on the trip. “I am very much interested in history. Not only do I want to see new places, En tant que maire du canton de Cham- plain, je désire remercier grandement tous les bénévoles qui font de notre collectivité un endroit où il fait bon vivre. Le soir de l’Halloween, nous avons ac- cueilli 2000 visiteurs à l’Ancienne prison de L’Orignal pour les divertir, les effrayer et profiter d’une soirée unique. Cet événement a été organisé par le Patrimoine L’Orignal- Longueuil Heritage et les pompiers volon- taires de L’Orignal.

but the educational factor and the history is amazing.” To emphasize the sacrifices made by Canada, which suffered 60,000 fatalities during the First World War, France granted Canada 107 hectares of land at Vimy to build and maintain a memorial. That iconic site is today considered one of the most stir- ring of all First WorldWar monuments, and undoubtedly Canada’s most significant war memorial. April 9, 1917 was a turning point in Cana- dian history, when four Canadian divisions fought together as a fused fighting force for the first time. While more than 3,500 Cana- dian soldiers died during the battle of Vimy Ridge, the extraordinary victory over Ger- man forces is often cited as the beginning of Canada’s evolution from dominion to independence.The Vimy Foundation is wor- king to spread the word to Canadian youth through initiatives like the Vimy Prize and the Vimy Pin so that all Canadians unders- tand the importance of Vimy to the nation’s identity (

Participation’s Music Hall Theatre Productions performed another awesome show Friday, September 25 . Another swell performance from HUGO Mobility and La Plume Moderne brought this lyrical troupe to Alexandria’s historic Priest’s Mill to raise funds for the Glengarry Memorial Hospital Foundation. Syllabification from a Sycophant featuring Bob’s favourite hospital was a ragtime rock

fest that made the audience voices ring out, ushered laughter into the air and toes tap. The musicians were silly, while seriously playing their instruments. Starring in the musical were Katie Dits- chun, amazing songstress, virtuoso Ka- zooist, pianist and percussionist; Robert (Bob) Hardy, clever clarinetist and non- sensical navigator of the show; Ian McIn- tosh, wee ukulele player; Willard Riley, top trumpeter, terrific tubaist and copyright clarifier; Laurie McRae-Bingley, wonder- ful walker waltzer – Viola St. James; Jeff Poissant, multi-mediaminister; andDavid Sauvé, sensible stage manager.

Entrée en vigueur du règlement de stationnement d’hiver

Les Bears, toujours les Bears

Kevin Groulx a marqué un but et a obtenu trois passes la victoire sur Hawkesbury.

C’est à compter de ce dimanche 15 novembre que le règlement de stationnement d’hiver entrera en vigueur dans les rues de Hawkesbury. À partir de cette date, et ce jusqu’au 15 avril, il sera interdit de stationner les véhicules dans les rues entre minuit et 7 h. Ce règlement a pour but de faciliter les opérations de déneigement et pour limiter les possibles accrochages en raison de la chaussée glissante et autres intempéries. À noter que ce règlement s’ajoute à ceux déjà existants sur certaines rues et il est important de bien lire les panneaux pour éviter de malencontreuses contraventions. (SL)


Après une première période plutôt tran- quille avec seulement six lancers, les Bears ont sorti les griffes en deuxième, bombar- dant le gardien Andrew Tucci de 15 lancers et touchant la cible à deux reprises au cours des deux premières minutes de jeu, pour ainsi prendre les devants 3 à 0. Au dernier vingt, Matthew Kenney a fait mal aux Hawks en se faufilant derrière les défenseurs pour ensuite s’emparer d’un retour de lancer pour son dixième filet de la saison. Smiths Falls a ajouté un autre but moins de trois minutes plus tard et a fermé les livres en fin de match sur un revirement en zone centrale, ce qui a permis à Nicolas Coates de prendre bien son temps pour décocher un lancer du poignet qui a eu raison d’An- drew Tucci. Ce dernier connaît une période creuse, ayant perdu trois de ses quatre der- niers départs. Ce blanchissage permet aux Bears de grimper au deuxième rang de la division Robinson, tandis que les Hawks dégringolent au cinquième rang, derrière les Braves de Brockville et les Colts de Cornwall. Les trois formations sont à égalité avec 30 points, mais Brockville a trois matchs en mains et Cornwall deux. Ce soir, les Hawks sont à Hawkesbury et il y aura du monde au complexe puisque le match sera présenté aumêmemoment que le grand spectacle country Blast from the Past. Les 73 de Kemptville seront donc en terrain connu avec les cowboys et fermiers et ils voudront venger leur défaite de 6 à 2 du 2 octobre. Cette saison, les Hawks ont battu Kemptville deux fois sur trois et les 73 sont bons derniers dans la division Robinson avec une maigre récolte de 20 points. Les Hawks seront également à domicile pour le match de dimanche, accueillant les Braves de Brockville pour unmatch très important à l’approche de la mi-saison.

Les Bears ont battu les Hawks de Hawkes- burypour une septième fois enhuit parties le 10novembre et unedeuxième fois par blan- chissage cette saison, infligeant uncinglant revers de 6 à 0 à la troupe de Rick Dorval.

player broke a skate lace and he refused to go out until the other player did before him! I have seen a player throw out four sticks they were cutting because each time they were one or two millimetres off! I have seen a player eat the same pre game meal every time on the road for two years (Salad, spaghetti and meat sauce, one roll with butter and a glass of water) even though they were serving Steak, Chicken, Fish, Baked Potatoes and ice cream for dessert. I enjoyed the complete buffet! The list of routines, habits and superstitions I witnessed from players over a span of eighteen years was both entertaining and in some cases disturbing. I personally never got to a point with superstitions or habits where they completely took over my life during my hockey career but I did have some routines and things I liked to have a certain way. My hockey stick length when I played had to be 60 inches exactly and I always took the cap out of the end of the aluminum and carbon sticks from 1993 to 2004. Before 1993 I used wood sticks with no caps! I always got dressed into my hockey equipment a certain way which I may be able to answer a question people have on why a lot of hockey player’s pants are torn on the back bottom part of their pants. Many hockey players put their skates on before their pants and it is almost impossible to get your skates through your pants without tearing them! I always wet my hockey gloves before I played yet I had them dried in between periods. I never wore a mouth guard or visor because I couldn’t breathe or see properly. Then when it became mandatory to wear a visor in Europe and I had to put one on I won the league scoring as a defensemen. I then believed I should always wear one. Some of my routines, habits and superstitions were in place from the beginning and others found their way in and out of my career over the course of eighteen years. The life of a hockey player, as I have mentioned in previous Hockey Talks, is not all fun and games. As you can see even in this aspect of routines, habits and superstitions it can almost become a stress. I lied in the previous line about this aspect not effecting my life as the list above is about 20 items longer of routine, habits and superstitions. It was a sort of check list which over time became easier and easier to manage. It wasn’t a bad thing for me and for the most part I do feel it helped me, but when I retired I was glad these routines, habits and superstitions could be put to rest and I no longer had to cut my stick at all! I believe routines, habits and superstitions are good to have as long as they are kept in line with them making you feel good and help you to prepare for your games. Try not to become too obsessive with them as they could end up hurting you more than helping you.



Habits and Superstitions This week I thought it would be interesting to talk about a hockey player’s routine which may also involve habits and superstitions! Many hockey players develop these routines as they grow up in a hockey playing environment. I am not sure at what age routine’s start but it can start as young as four years old. They may not realize it at the time as they cry and pout to have their favourite hockey socks put on in a certain way, but that is exactly the start of a routine or superstition! It’s not about comfort or look….. It just about the way they like it and they like it like that way every time! Some of the younger player’s routines will start out with getting to the practice and games at certain times, having a certain snack before every game, playing with a certain stick and being first in line for practice drills. What these routine’s do is give that player a sense of feeling good associated with playing the game they love. Until the age of midget hockey these routines do not really effect the players ability to perform and they will not be completely thrown off their game if they have the wrong snack before their game! Once you enter midget level hockey and higher, routines, habits and superstitions take on a new meaning. These routines in some player’s cases can take over completely, both mentally and physically. A player can get to a point that they will convince themselves that they will fail if their routines, habits and superstitions are disrupted. Some of these players I have personally seen take on symptoms similar to Obsessive Compulsive Disease (OCD) and when disrupted they get aggressive and unpleasant. I have seen players who have to be the last one out of the dressing room and last one off the ice. I once witnessed a player miss half of a pre-game warmup because another Plus de 30 véhicules d’occasion en inventaire! Visitez :
