The City of Cornwall received a $10,000 donation from Shoeless Joe’s on January 29 through the restaurant’s Home Team Advantage Program. The funds will go towards improvements to the City’s recreational path. Former Cornwall Royal and NHL great Doug Gilmour was on hand to help celebrate the announcement. Working closely withMayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy, Shoeless Joe’s and the City have decided the funds will go towards painting a centre line throughout the recreational bike path system. Cornwall’s recreational path is one of the city’s most popular recreation assets and one of the busiest, and this new centre line will help keep traffic in order. URGENT!

New dining map for downtown Over the past few years, downtown Cornwall has grown into a dining destination, with a wide variety of restaurants ready to tantalize taste buds. From the fast-food stops in Cornwall Square to the fine dining venues on Pitt Street, downtown Cornwall’s restau- rant scene has something for everyone. Figuring out what restaurant to try next is now a little easier with the creation of a new story map highlighting Cornwall’s downtown restaurants. The interactive map features 27 different restaurants in the city’s urban core with photos and descriptions of each as well as links to additional information. The map also displays parking lot locations. The map was produced by St. Lawrence College jour- nalism student Alina Martin, who is currently completing a one-month internship with the Economic Development department. $20,000 allocated to Cornwall Manufacturing companies located in Cornwall and the region may be eligible for a new program that offers 50 per cent reimbursement of training costs. The Eastern Ontario Manufacturing - Skills & Jobs Initiative is being funded under the Eastern Ontario De- velopment Program administered by FedDev Ontario. An amount of $160,000 has been allocated to distribute throughout the region, with $20,000 for Cornwall. “Companies are invited to contact our office and discuss how this program can help them,” said Di- ane Soucie, Senior Project Officer with the Eastern Ontario Training Board. “The amount available to each company will depend on program take-up in the region, and in Eastern Ontario as a whole. We can definitely fund more than one training session per company.” Scientists at the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences are eager to use a new flow meter that was donated recently by Greyline Instruments Inc. in Long Sault. “We are very grateful to Greyline Instruments for this donation,” stated Dr. Jeff Ridal, executive director at the River Institute, “This instrument will be used for many different projects at the River Institute. For example, it will be used to as- sess the impacts of stormwater runoff and discharge from industrial sites. It will also be used to understand the spatial patterns of contaminants in sediments, and it will help us characterize fish habitat and identify sites suited for species rehabilitation.” Pictured are Dr. Jeff Ridal (River Institute), Ingo Rutenberg (Greyline), Ernie Higgin- son (Greyline), Louis Savard (River Institute) and Bill Sullivan (Greyline).

Cornwall to invest $50,000 in plowing match


Cornwall city council approved, on Janu- ary 26, to invest $50,000 in the Interna- tional Plowing Match (IPM), which will take place in Finch from September 22 to the 26, but only if it is approved in the up- coming 2015 budget. Calling it a sponsorship package, the IPM highlights the need for emergency services, which would cost $18,000 to the city, a tent display, at the cost of $15,000, a shuttle ser- “Considering the potential economic impact the match will have on the city, this is a good investment.” vice to and from the event as well as other donations, such as chairs and picnic tables. Over 60,000 visitors have participated in prior IPM events, with many of them camp- ing on site with their recreational vehicles. “Considering the potential economic im- pact the match will have on the city, this is a good investment,” said city councillor Claude McIntosh. “Thousands of people will attend and many will book hotel rooms in the city. It will be a great opportunity for the city to showcase itself. The shuttle bus ser- vice is a plus.” Finch is located less than 30 minutes from Cornwall. “As the commercial centre for the region, Cornwall is expected to see a lot of activity during the event, and Corn- wall merchants are expected to be busy,” explained Bob Peters, senior development officer for the city. “To facilitate this activity, we will be supporting the regional display tent, as well as providing a shuttle service to and from the Plowing Match.

Cornwall city council approved, on January 26, to invest $50,000 in the upcoming International Plowing Match (IPM), which will take place in Finch from September 22 to the 26, but only if it is approved in the upcoming 2015 budget. But will the investment pay off for the city?

benefit will be the upcoming conference for the Ontario Plowman’s Association, which is expected to attract 250 attendees and their spouses to Cornwall in March.” In addition, approximately 1000 people are expected to spend five days at the RV park, which will be located close to the event. According to a report presented by the City’s Department of Economic Develop- ment and prepared by Peters, much of the IPM’s sponsorship cost could be absorbed within the current 2015 budget, but only if EMS services were exempt.

A local Cornwall Regional Task Force (CRTF) inspector is gettingawell-deserved

which he says is a lucky day for him. “I am leaving happy and healthy after a fulfilling

retirement, following 33 years of service with the RCMP. Inspector Tim Kimpan, the Officer in Charge of the RTF since 2008, has recently announced his retirement. His postings include Ottawa National Headquarters, Kirkland Lake, Sudbury, a United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti and a 4-year secondment to

and challenging career with the Force,” said Kimpan. “My departure, however, is with mixed emotions as I know that I will miss my co-work- ers and the numerous part- ners with whom I enjoyed working over the years”. His replacement has yet to be announced. The CRTF is a joint forces partnership that includes the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Canada Bor- der Services Agency, Ontario

Année productive pour l’Amalgame FRANCIS RACINE Robert Perron, souligne que l’année 2014 a été grandement productive pour l’orga- nisme qui regroupe plusieurs disciplines, soit la chorale Chœur en fête, une troupe de théâtre ainsi que plusieurs artistes.

«Au cours de cette année (2014), les arts de la scène ont été au cœur des activités de L’Amalgame, a souligné M. Perron. La pièce de Michel Tremblay, Le Gars de Québec , a fait salle comble pour six représentations en février-mars.» En effet, la pièce, qui a été présentée au Dream Builders Studios, a été appréciée par plus de 700 spectateurs.

«On fait beaucoup avec peu, s’est exprimé e Nicole Labelle, directrice artistique pour l’Amalgame des arts de la langue fran- çaise et du théâtre, lors de l’assemblée générale annuelle (AGA) de l’organisme à but non lucratif, le 28 janvier dernier. La directrice disait vrai, puisqu’un rapport présenté par le président de L’Amalgame,

Danielle D’Anjou-Villemaire ainsi que Mélanie Samis présentent toutes deux, un ex- trait de la pièce de théâtre Les Belles Sœurs , par Michel Tremblay, lors de l’AGA de L’Amalgame des arts de la langue française et du théâtre. La pièce sera présentée au Dream Builders Studios en fin février.

L’année 2015 apportera aussi plusieurs nouvelles collaborations, puisque M. Perron a remarqué que les deux autres troupes de théâtre qui jouent au Dream Builders Stu- dios, soit la Seaway Valley Theater Company , ainsi que la troupe Vagabond, ont accepté de s’allier avec L’Amalgame. «Ils nous aident maintenant avec notre éclairage et autres petites choses, lors de nos performances.» Il semble donc que les arts théâtraux ont été au cœur de 2014 pour l’organisme, puisque deux autres pièces ont aussi été montées avec l’aide de la troupe Dance/ce Corps , soit L’autre histoire de Saint-Jean-Bap- tiste et Huis Clos / No Exit , œuvre de Jean- Paul Sartre. L’alliance des deux troupes aurait pris forme le 27 mars dernier, lors de diverses performances célébrant la Journée mondiale du théâtre. Des états financiers en très bonne santé Selon Murielle Bourdeau, qui a présenté les états financiers, ceux-ci seraient en très bonne santé. «Il n’y a pas eu d’activités extraordinaires l’année dernière, en ce qui a trait aux états financiers, a déclaré Mme Bourdeau. Cette année, nous avons 2400$ de plus en ré- serve. C’est très bon.» L’Amalgame a reçu 2076 $ de commandi- taires, et a amassé 7166 $ en recettes lors des productions. Les dépenses de l’orga-

nisme pour 2014 s’élèvent à 4782 $. Des élections pas trop difficiles Précédent l’élection, cinq postes étaient donc disponibles aux membres de l’orga- nisme. Ceux-ci ont presque tous été renou- velés, à l’exception de Chantal Quesnel, qui a été remplacée par Corneliu Kirjan. Robert Perron, Michèle Chauvin-Bourdon, Murielle Bourdeau et Danielle Duplantie ont tous été réélus. Mélanie Bennett, Mario Gagnon, Michel Lamarche, Dianne Poirier et Mario Sarda ont tous une année restant à leurs mandats et devront donc être réélus l’année prochaine. Le poste de directrice artistique, com- blée par Mme Labelle, ainsi que le poste de direction de l’administration qui est main- tenant vacant, sont nommés par le conseil d’administration et non par élection. «Les deux postes qui ne sont pas comblés par des élections ont eux aussi un mandat de deux ans, a souligné M. Samson. C’est donc l’une des premières tâches qui attend notre nouveau conseil d’administration.» La soirée s’est terminée avec une presta- tion fort appréciée de Danielle D’Anjou-Vil- lemaire et Mélanie Samis. Celles-ci ont pré- senté un extrait de la pièce de théâtre Les Belles Sœurs , de Michel Tremblay. La pièce sera présentée au Dream Builders Studios les 20, 21, 22, 27 et 28 février prochain, ainsi que le premier mars.

Single largest donation for St. Lawrence College

The Joyce Foundation recently announced a $2-million donation to St. Lawrence Col- lege to establish The Joyce Foundation Ed Lumley Bursary. The Foundation made the gift in recognition of The Honourable Ed Lumley, a nationally recognized busi- nessman, politician and member of the Order of Canada. Lumley is a Trustee on The Joyce Foundation Board and friend of Ron Joyce. “For some students, the opportunity to go to college is a challenge because of the many barriers they face.” “For some students, the opportunity to go to college is a challenge because of the many barriers they face. The Trustees on The Joyce Foundation Board truly believe in helping kids attain higher education be- cause, when education is more accessible, everyone benefits,” says Joyce.

The funds will be used to create an endowed bursary fund for students who reside in the three com- munities and counties surrounding St. Law- rence College’s campuses. Bursaries may

Three local men charged with possession

McGill Bouchard, 38, Bryan Archer, 40, and Anthony Marini, 23, all from Cornwall, were arrested on January 23 and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, possession of ec- stasy and possession for the purpose of trafficking. It is alleged that on January 23, members of the Cornwall Street Crime Unit executed a drug warrant at an Alice Street address and located a quantity of marijua- na, ecstasy and methamphetamine pills. The three men were taken into custody and charged accordingly. Bouchard was also charged with property obtained by crime (Canadian Currency) and breach of his probation order for being in possession of drugs and for failing to keep the peace. He was held in custody for a bail hearing while Archer, who was also charged with breach- ing his probation order for failing to keep the peace, and Marini were released to ap- pear in court on March 10.

Un vidéoclip créé par une policière native de Cornwall, concernant le taxage, a gé- néré beaucoup d’attention en ligne. Sandasha Ferguson (née Bough), l’agente de po- lice de London, en Ontario, s’occupe des relations avec les jeunes de sa communauté. Or, celle-ci a eu la brillante idée de créer un vidéoclip ayant pour thème comment les étudiants peuvent combattre le taxage . «Je suis un peu embarrassée, a expliqué Mme Ferguson. Le clip ne devait être montré qu’à une classe de sixième année.» La policière dit espérer avoir attiré l’attention sur le problème.

Écoles francophones, inscriptions en hausse

catholique de l’Est Ontarien (CSDCEO), on indique que les dernières années on été caractérisées par une hausse des inscrip- tions à la maternelle. À l’échelle provinciale, on se réjouit d’une augmentation moyenne de 2% au cours des dernières années. Le nombred’étudiants pour 2013-2014était de 100 540 au sein des 12 conseils scolaires de langue française de l’Ontario, soit 1845 de plus que l’année précédente, selon le ré- seau, Pour l’éducation en langue française en Ontario (ELF). Il y a 10 ans, ils étaient environ 90 000. «De façon générale, on a eu des hausses d’effectifs entre 3 et 5%au cours des six der- nières années et l’augmentation s’observe partout sur notre territoire», a commenté la directrice de l’éducation et secrétaire-tréso-

rière du CEPEO, Édith Dumont, en affirmant toutefois que c’est dans l’ouest d’Ottawa que les hausses sont les plus marquées. Au CSDCEO, qui dessert les cinq comtés de l’Est, Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Pres- cott et Russell, on estime que l’immigration joue un rôle important dans les faits souli- gnés et que l’impact est moindre dans les régions rurales. « Moi je crois que l’augmentation est probablement plus forte dans les grands centres où les immigrants vont s’installer. Les grandes villes comme Ottawa et Toronto profitent de l’arrivée des immigrants pour augmenter leurs effectifs», affirme pour sa part Johanne Côté, attachée de direction au CSDCEO. En 2010, les politiques d’admission ont

été modifiées afin de s’ajuster à la définition élargie de la francophonie ontarienne et d’inclure les enfants issus de l’immigration, dont les parents ne parlent ni le français ni l’anglais. Pour sa part, Mme Dumont est d’avis que le caractère non confessionnel des conseils publics, dont le CEPEO, permet d’accueillir tous les nouveaux arrivants, ce qui est une grande force. «Je pense que c’est un attrait dans le contexte de la population immigrante au même titre que la qualité et la rigueur de nos programmes académiques. On sent que les parents sont très soucieux à cet égard.» Aussi, pour le CEPEO, la certification ISO 14 000 et l’offre du BAC International, contri- buent grandement à ce succès, selon elle.


L’éducation de langue fran çaise conna ît un regain en Ontario et l’Est ontarien reflète bien la tendance nationale. Une hausse du nombre d’élèves de 3,7% a été observée au Conseil des écoles pu- bliques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) pour l’année en cours. Au Conseil de district Heritage Fair set for February 14 Heritage-Patrimoine Cornwall will be celebrating local history by once again hosting the annual Heritage Fair on February 14 at the Cornwall Square. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the festivities taking place at Cen- tre Court on the first floor of the Corn- wall Square. The free day-long event will feature a number of different heritage groups from Cornwall and the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glen- garry. Officials from these organizations will be on hand to answer questions and display the area’s rich and diverse histo- ry. Some of the participating groups that confirmed their participation include the SD & G Historical Society, Heritage- Patrimoine Cornwall, the United Empire Loyalists and the Diocese of Alexandria- Cornwall. Corporate Knights, une entreprise de consultation en média et en placement de Toronto, vient de publier le palmarès 2015 des 100 entreprises les plus du- rables au monde (Global 100). La chaîne de restauration rapide Tim Hortons figure au premier rang des entreprises canadiennes et au 11e rang mondial de son palmarès, une hausse par rapport au 22e rang qu’elle y occupait en 2014. Les entreprises qui figurent au palmarès Global 100 sont les plus performantes à l’échelle mondiale en matière de durabi- lité au sein de leur industrie respective. Ces entreprises ont été sélectionnées parmi 4609 entreprises dont la capitali- sation boursière dépasse les 2 milliards $ américains. Le palmarès Global 100 a été établi au moyen de 12 indicateurs quan- titatifs dont les revenus générés par uni- té d’énergie consommée, le ratio entre le salaire du président-directeur général (PDG) et celui d’un employé moyen, et l’engagement de l’entreprise envers son produit et envers l’innovation relative à son système.

Stealing from Second Street store A man is in hot water after he was caught stealing from a Second Street store. Marcel Delorme, 50, of Cornwall, was arrested on Janu- ary 24 and charged with theft under $5000 and breach of two un- dertakings and one probation order for failing to keep the peace. It is alleged that, on January 22, the man entered a Second Street East store and removed a bottle of alcohol making no attempt to pay for the item as he left the store. Police were made aware of the theft and an investigation ensued. On January 24, the man was spotted by police in the area of St-Felix Street and First Street. He was taken into custody, charged accordingly and held for bail.

Justice rendue pour un chaton

La prière Taizé

Un homme âgé de 25 ans fait face à plu- sieurs accusations criminelles suite à son arrestation le 27 janvier dernier. L’individu de Cornwall aurait tabassé un chaton avant de le mettre dans un sac de vidange

et le jeter à la poubelle. Bien que peu c r o y a i e n t que le petit félin s’en sor- tirait, celui- ci se porte mieux. Le chaton serait en si bonne forme qu’il pourrait être offert pour a d o p t i o n dans les pro- chains jours.

«Les actes de cruauté envers les animaux sont pris très au sérieux par la OSPCA de l’Ontario», a souligné Steve Toy, inspecteur principal pour l’organisation qui vient en aide aux animaux. Le jeune homme devra comparaître en cour le 10 février prochain.

Le 21 janvier 2015, les élèves de la 3 e année de l’École élémentaire catholique Marie-Tanguay ont participé à un pèlerinage qui les a conduits vers un petit village nommé Taizé, en France. À l’école, un local a été aménagé en chapelle afin de faire vivre une expérience de prière unique et dynamique pour ces jeunes pèlerins. La prièreTaizé est fondée sur quatre principes de base: la foi, la simplicité, la musique et le silence. Ci-dessus, on reconnaît Cédric Houde, Arianne Leroux-Gaucher, Isabelle Fisk, Siri Neville, Zachary Boltz, Père Jean Muakadi, Tina Chardonneau et Nancy Kelly

Week of February 1 to 7, 2015

ARIES You’d better rest a bit if your health is fragile. Luckily, you find that your sleep is doubly rejuvenating and that you can soon regain your strength. TAURUS If you’ve had visitors staying with you, your home is sure to be a mess and you now have the job of tidying it up. A big cleanout should be your priority this week. GEMINI Under the influence of the full moon, you have to unravel a complex and chaotic situation. Don’t let things de- teriorate for too long or you’ll run out of time. CANCER You may feel anxious about the health of a loved one. You receive some good news that will resurrect some interesting projects. LEO You see quite a lot of action this week. Your friends invite you here, there, and everywhere, which will pull you out of your hermit phase. You may even be invited to go on a trip. VIRGO You have every right to pat yourself on the back after accomplishing some sort of feat. Moreover, your success greatly enhances your self- esteem. LIBRA If you were planning to take a trip soon, it’s possible that a situation will arise and complicate things. Things will work out all right at the last moment. SCORPIO Your feelings are particularly sensi- tive; your emotions may even play a few tricks on you. You shed light on some sort of corruption at work or perhaps even in the family. SAGITTARIUS You’re not necessarily the most di- plomatic of people, but thanks to you, things can move forward. You dare to say out loud what all the other people are only thinking. CAPRICORN At work, you may be given a great promotion. But before you agree to anything, it’s important to talk to your life partner as well as your family. AQUARIUS You need to sharpen your negotia- ting skills in both a professional and a personal setting. You have every- thing it takes to reach a lasting agreement. PISCES You find yourself at the centre of attention, and this gives you a lot of pleasure. You may even receive a reward of some kind.
