SRO crowd listens to changes for counties’ planning guide


It was standing-room-only at the start of an afternoon public presentation on the final report about changes to the Official Plan guidelines for land use in Prescott and Russell counties. More than a hundred residents from around the two counties filled all the chairs in the public gallery of the United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR) council chamber with at least another two dozen standing in the back of the room. The June 24 informa- tion session was one of the final stages in what has been a four-year process since May 2011 to update and revise the UCPR’s official zoning and land-use plan for the next five years. Final approval by the province. Louis Prévost, UCPR planning and for- estry director, told both council and the gallery audience that the Official Plan (OP) revision document has a July 24 deadline for final comments from the public before it goes back to counties council in August for approval. Then it goes to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) for final review and approval, barring any changes that ministry officials demand. “Once the (approval) decision is made by the ministry,” said Prévost, “that’s when the appeal period begins.” Once the ministry has signed off on the OP, anymore changes require an order from the OntarioMunicipal Board (OMB). Prévost noted that the OMBwill only accept appeal

The public gallery of the counties council chamber was packed with residents interested in the changes to the Official Plan guidelines for Prescott-Russell.

requests from individuals or groups who have gone on record as part of the OP review process. Anyone who has put their name on the record while attending one of the review process consultation sessions or asked in writing for updates, notices and copies of reports on the review process, or asked in writing for permission to present a brief, are

considered eligible to file an appeal notice to the OMB. If there are no final changes or appeal rulings, the new OP will be the land-use planning guide for the UCPR for the next five years. Most of the questions and comments from the public gallery during the Wednesday afternoon information session concerned counties council’s decision to accept its advi- sory planning committee’s recommendation to remove the aggregate minerals resource designation for the Jessup’s Falls Escarp- ment area. The proposed change to the OP could mean the end for a local developer’s pro-

posal to set up an asphalt plant operation there. Comments from neighbouring resi- dents present during the informationmeet- ing praised counties council for its decision. But there were several queries from the audience about other land-use issues involv- ing either property bordering existing quarry or gravel pits, identifying possible gravel pit sites located in areas of Prescott-Russell where there is karst topography, which could pose risks to aquifers and local wells, and also protection guarantees for wildlife cor- ridors in Prescott-Russell. The UCPROP report will return to coun- ties council for final review and approval in August.

Counties treasurer looks ahead to restful retirement


for her hard and meticulous work. All the mayors on the council accepted, with stifled tears in a few cases, the news of her departure at the end of the year. But not without each of themfirst offering up praise for her hard work and dedication during her years as the counties’ financial director. Close to two dozen of Lepage-Gareau’s family and friends stood at the back of coun- cil chambers to applaud as she received recognition and credit for her service to the counties of Prescott and Russell. During a later interview, Lepage-Gareau summed up themajor tasks ahead of her and her finance department colleagues before she says her final good-bye. First priority is putting together the 2016 budget for coun- ties to approve before the end of the year. “Also a 10-year planning budget guide,” she said, adding that the report compiles all the assets that the UCPR has in the way of infrastructure, properties, and other re- sources.” As far as her own immediate plans for retirement are concerned, Mrs. Lepage- Gareau knows what she anticipates themost. “The first thing I want to do is be withmy family,” she said, smiling.

One last budget to shepherd to completion for the counties and that is it for Louise Lepage-Gareau. The womanwho has managed and guided all the budget planning and other financial affairs for the United Counties of Prescott- Russell (UCPR) will take her leave at the end of the year to begin a well-earned retire- ment. News of her impending retirement was received, at the counties council June 24 meeting, with amixture of grateful applause and sad regret at her departure. “This is quite the event,” said Stéphane Parisien, UCPR chief administrator, as he presented counties council with the official verbal notice of Louise Lepage-Gareau’s retirement. Parisien to her right andWarden Kirby on her left, Lepage-Gareau presented her official retirement notice during theWe- dnesday regular session of counties council. Lepage-Gareau joined the UCPR’s finance department in 1980 and, over the years, her job has involvedmuch of the counties’ major budget planning and other financial affairs. Parisien noted that she has proven a dedi- cated teamplayer and well-known and liked

The 2015-2016 budget has a $4.5 million total gap in its special education revenue because of theministry’s decision to reduce high-needs funding for the Upper Canada district by $3.5 million over 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school terms.

One EasternOntario school district has its budget ready for the next term. The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) approved its 2015-2016 budget during the final week of school. The budget report to the board noted that the next term’s financial planwill reflect an expected drop in revenue of about $7.4million for the UCDSB. Board Chairman Jeff McMillan stated in a news release that the new budget will strengthen the UCDSB’s finances and sup-

Phair warning against phishing phriends

Fondation Roger-Séguin

19 juin 2015 June 19, 2015

The summer fishing season has settled in. But police are warning that some particu- lar types of phishermen are also trolling around the Internet looking for someone to hook with their phony email scams. The OPP Anti-Rackets Branch has posted an alert about phishing con artists. Phishing is an email tactic used for identity theft. Phishing involves sending fake emails under the guise of an actual company, a government agency, or a non-profit group. Some phishing scams send emails from fake groups but with enough convincing detail in the email text tomake it seem legitimate. The phishing email will either suggest that the target’s account information is out of date or that something has happened to the group’s information data files and that all clients need to renew their accounts. This particular phishing con is called “brand spoofing” and the aim is to get the target of the con to go to a website or reply to the email and provide personal and financial identity information.The phisher then uses

the information to plunder the victim’s bank account or run up huge credit card debts. Last year, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) received almost 2,500 complaints about phishing scams that cost victims a combined total of almost $250,000. Anyone with a computer is urged to get their IT pro- vider to make sure the anti-virus software is updated and the email filter and firewall enhanced to weed out most phishing emails. Users are urged not to reply to any email that asks for personal identify or financial information. They should also be on the lookout for spelling or grammatical errors that indicate an email written in a hurry or by someone not familiar with the recipient’s native language. Phishing emails can be reported to the Internet provider and the police or the CAFC. The OPP Anti-Rackets Branch will take infor- mation at 705-329-6437.The CrimeStoppers confidential tips line at 1-800-222-8477 will also accept anonymous tips about phishing scams.

Bully-free Zones project graduation Students at local high schools cheered the end of school and the start of summer vacation. For Grade 12 students, the end of June featured their own graduation celebrations. Throughout Prescott-Russell, another sort of graduation took place earlier this spring as the Prescott-Russell Coalition in Action to Prevent and Stop Bullying (PRCAPSB) marked the successful conclusion to its community action plan to help create bully-free zones and spread the message to Stamp Out Bullying throughout the region. Brian Smockum and Luke Brodie of the Canadian Red Cross hosted workshops in Rockland, Cassel- man and Hawkesbury during the first half of May. The workshops, titled Ten Steps to Creating Safe Environments, helped participants representing local businesses, recreation centres, community clubs, sports teams and other agencies to evaluate any and all risks within their organizations or localities, define a common vocabulary about what bullying is, and determine the next steps towards creating a bully-free community. More than 80 participants attended the workshops, united by the wish to see bullying eliminated in their communities. The Coalition is now looking into other strategies to continue towards its goal. For details and information on resources to combat bullying, go to www.PRUnitedA-– Gregg Chamberlain New school appointments The Upper Canada District School Board has confirmed new principal and vice-principal appointments for the next school term.

Grads told to reach for the sky

Celina Brulé won several awards during her graduation ceremony at St. FX, including awards for math, science, the Governor General’s award, and Moison/Lavergne Science bursary. She was also the class valedictorian and gave an inspiring speech to her classmates.

That moment every grad looks forward to, the traditional ceremonial hat fling.

Fly high, fly far, fly in pursuit of their dreams, whatever those may be. That was the main piece of advice many speakers urged towards the Class of 2015 at both St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School and RocklandDistrict High School during the end-of-June graduation ceremonies at each institution. Parents, friends, teachers, delegates, and students gathered to wish both graduating classes well as theymove on to the next phase of their lives. “Soar as high as you can go,” said Carroll Carkner, Prescott-Russell trustee for the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB), in her opening address to the 79 members of RDHS’ graduating class. “The sky is the limit. And be safe.” Trustee SueWilson of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) offered words of encouragement to the 67 graduating students at SFX who walked into the gym with caps and gowns, ready to accept their high school diploma, as family and friends cheered them on. CDSBEO Superintendent Tom Jordan, Catholic School Résidence St-Félix Chambres privées libres pour personnes en besoin. Pour plus d'information contactez Suzanne 613-487-3660

Council Chair Valerie Tkacz-Lacroix, and SFX Principal Ralph Sharples also offered congratulations. RDHS Principal Jeff Campbell speculated during his speech on what this year’s graduates could offer to the world as they left their homes, and home towns, to pursue their future careers, either in the workplace or through continued studies at college and university. “Lately, we seem to spend a lot of time wondering what the world needs now,” Campbell said. “Some of the world issues that seem to prompt many of our discussions are the struggling economy, climate change, environmental issues and world peace. In my opinion, what we need now is very clear. We need young people with strong convictions, commitment and determination. We need young people who put merit on the important things in life, like our relationships with family and friends, our support for the community and, most importantly, our respect for humanity. We need good citizens with principles that are formed out of a desire for a life beyond the immediate. The more young people in the world who possess these virtues, the more assured we will be that the future will unfold in an appropriate manner.” SFX Valedictorian Celina Brulé thanked both families and teachers for helping her and other students prepare to take their place in the world. “Teachers taught us how tobe respectable, how not to write an essay, and to look up from our phones,” she said. “Thank you for making us better students and better people.” Brulé also reminded students that high school was messy and complicated. “Our roots will always be tangled.” Brulé was named as the SFX recipient for the Governor General’s Medal of Aca- demic Excellence. At RDHS, the Governor General’sMedal went toMarie-EveMathieu. Zack Loyer received the Ontario Lieutenant- Governor’s Community Volunteer Award.

Fanie Lozier, plus qu’une survivante du cancer du sein portra i t • prof i le ANNIE LAFORTUNE

Son médecin la reçoit en urgence et lui partage son inquiétude sur cettemasse can- céreuse agressive qui mesurait cinq centi- mètres. « Tu vis la peur. Tu te poses plein de questions. Tu as l’impression de perdre ta féminité. Je n’acceptais pas. Je me disais que je n’avais pas de cancer », partage-t-elle. Le 18 janvier 2013, on procède à l’ablation de son sein. Elle arrête alors de travailler. Dans sa malchance, la masse cancéreuse était en forme de boule ou d’œuf et aucune métastase ne s’était alors répandue. Fanie a besoin de comprendre, de se comprendre. De saisir ce qu’elle est, qui elle est. Celle qui est l’ambassadrice cette année du Poker Run lors du Festival de la Rive, début juillet à Rockland, s’est tournée vers le Christ, pas celui que l’homme a créé mais bien celui qui vit en nous. Pour Fanie, c’est du passé. Car le Christ veille sur elle, comme sur chacun d’entre nous, explique-t-elle. Bien sûr, le cancer a changé sa façon de percevoir la vie. « Tu as plus de compassion pour les gens, surtout ceux qui sont malades. Car une fois que tu l’as vécu, tu comprends ce par quoi ils passent. Le matériel, c’est bien beau, mais l’amour et l’être humain sont encore plus importants. C’est clichémais c’est tellement ça ! », dit-elle en souriant. Aujourd’hui, Fanie donne des confé- rences en France et en Suisse, sur l’amour, le Christ et la paix à l’intérieur de chacun. On l’attend avec impatience à chacune de ses conférences. Dans le cadre du Festival

C’est l’amour et le bonheur qui font partie de sa vie. Nul problème ne pourra jamais lui enlever cela. Ni même un cancer et l’abla- tion de son sein. Fanie Lozier, de Rockland, 42 ans, mère de deux filles, est une survivante du cancer du sein, mais elle est encore bien plus que cela. Quand on la rencontre, elle éclaire sys- tématiquement le chemin de la personne qui se retrouve devant elle. Encore faut-il savoir ouvrir son cœur, car celui de Fanie est grand ouvert et elle n’a pas peur de le dire ni de le montrer. C’est que sa foi l’allume. L’amour qu’elle partage sans compter la rend encore plus belle. En l’écoutant parler, on ne peut qu’aller bien. Son enthousiasme et sa bonté soulèveraient les feuilles tombées sur le sol l’automne venu. Elle est comme ça. Tout simplement. Celle qui a été propriétaire d’un salon d’esthétique pendant sept ans, à Rockland, a compris un jour qu’elle devait mettre la clé dans la porte. En janvier 2013, on lui diagnostique un cancer du sein agressif. « Je sentais une bosse sur mon sein depuis quelque temps déjà, avoue-t-elle, mais je n’ai jamais voulu croire au pire. On n’a jamais étémalade dans ma famille. »Mais un rêve, une nuit, lui envoie le message qu’elle doit absolument consulter. S’ensuivent une série de traitements, dont six chimiothérapies, une biopsie et de la radiation.

Fanie Lozier éclaire le chemin sur lequel elle marche.

de la rive, à Rockland, elle parlera du cancer du sein, de la guérison et mentionnera que les donateurs sont des supers héros, une chose très importante à ses yeux. Fanie Lozier est elle aussi une super hé- roïne, car ils sont peu nombreux les gens

qui vous prennent par la main et qui vous disent que vous êtes aimé et qu’ils souhaitent le meilleur pour vous. À Rockland, si vous entendez des chants mélodieux d’oiseaux, c’est que Fanie est sûrement passée par là…

field. Serving as mentors, they coach their young charges, help polish their skills and techniques, and offer valu- able advice gleaned from their own years of experience in dance and choreography. At the end of the in- tensive program, Broadway Bound participants go on stage as the open- ing number for a Broadway Showcase performance at the New Amsterdam Theatre, home to the perennial Disney musical hit, Aladdin. Beauchemin has had a love of dance since she was four, and her pas- sion for the art sees her now training five days a week, both at home and as part of the competitive dance teamat DanceR Studio in Orléans. With her teammates, she has rep- resented the club at several events over the past years in the Ottawa and Toronto areas and outside of Canada at musical spectaculars like the 2013 Dance theWorld production at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Her specialty is fusion formdance, which combines jazz, ballet, and con- temporary styles, but she is also gifted in each of those individual modes of dance. Service clubs, groups, or individu- als interested in helping Beauchemin live her Broadway dream can email Diana Uribe, the Be Discovered talent director, at, or phone toll-free to 1-888-657-4202 for details.

Ashlyn Beauchemin is ready to see the lights of Broadway. Whether or not her name is on one of the theatre marquees makes no dif- ference to this young dancer from Clarence-Rockland. For her, it’s all about a chance to get up on stage and dance in the Big Apple. Beauchemin won a scholarship package worth $2100 US, through the Be Discovered Project, for the Broadway Bound dance training program that takes place during the latter half of July. A past schol- arship winner, Jennifer Runions, recommended Beauchemin as a candidate in the project’s Year of Hope program in support of breast cancer awareness. Her scholarship includes $1000 US cash towards expenses, her air- line ticket to and from New York City, and a confirmed photo shoot while there. All Ashlyn needs now are some generous sponsors will- ing to help her get the remainder of the $5000 in total that she needs to help cover the remainder of her expenses while in New York so she can focus her attention and get on with the show. The Broadway Bound project teams promising young amateur dancers with many of the top in- structors and professionals in the

Le Relais l’espoir Mylan est passé par Rockland

Le Relais l’espoir Mylan est passé par Rockland le 24 juin dernier. Reliant St. John’s, Terre-Neuve et Labrador, à Hope, en Colombie Britannique, 36 coureurs provenant de chacune des provinces du Canada se relaient dans le but d’amasser des fonds et sensibiliser les Canadiens àmieux comprendre les personnes qui vivent avec le VIH/ sida ou qui sont vulnérables à ce virus. La course a commencé le 21 avril dernier, à l’est du pays, et se terminera à l’ouest à la mi-octobre. En tout, ce sont 7750 kmqui auront été parcourus. Les coureurs sont accompagnés d’une roulottemotorisée à des fins de soutien, de coordination logistique et de sécurité. Les recettes du Relais de l’espoir Mylan serviront à financer des programmes organisés par la Société canadienne du sida ainsi que des efforts mondiaux de lutte contre le VIH/sida dans des régions mal desservies par les initiatives de prévention actuelles. Le Californien Nam Pham s’est joint aux Canadiens Alexandre Candau (Montréal) et François Jarry (Montréal) pour parcourir la distance entre Rivière-du-Loup, au Québec, et Ottawa. Robyn Wright- Baker (Ottawa) a, quant à elle, couru à Terre-Neuve et à Ottawa. Il est estimé que 71 300 Canadiens vivent avec le VIH/sida. (AL)

Un lave-auto pour la fondation CHEO

Le bureau MLS Assurance de St-Isidore a fait un don de 5040 $ à la fondation CHEO, à la suite d’un lave-auto organisé le 30 mai dernier. Vingt bénévoles ont lavé 60 voitures, ce qui leur a permis d’amasser 2040 $. MLS Assurance a par la suite ajouté 3000 $ au montant récolté lors du lave-auto. La compagnie a tenu à remercier les commerçants du village ainsi que Barouche de St-Isidore qui a offert le repas aux bénévoles et aux participants. Le montant total a été remis lors du téléthon CHEO qui a eu lieu les 6 et 7 juin derniers.

15% of the world’s adult population has some degree of hearing loss. 75% of adults with hearing loss are 65 years and younger. 95% of people with hearing loss can benefit from using hearing aids.

Hearing loss is one of the world’s most common health problems. It is also one of the most ignored problems, and this is unfortunate because hearing loss and its psychological side effects are highly treatable. Difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments is the biggest complaint for those with hearing loss. In the real world, important speech doesn’t always come from in front of the listener. People often have conversations with those positioned at their side, even when their focus and attention needs to remain straight ahead. There can also be multiple people involved in a conversation and the target talker is not always positioned directly in front of the listener.

Now, new technology in hearing instruments called SmartZone2 has been developed to help hearing instrument wearers experience the best perception of speech coming from different directions in noisy conversations. SmartZone2 technology uses the latest in technology, including leveraging wireless technology to provide a variable directional beam based on the presence and location of a speech target. It automatically engages the appropriate microphone strategy in each hearing instrument, accommodating for conversation in a crowd or conversations in nose – the two conversation types which represent the most challenging listening environments. When you are strolling down a busy street, the background noise is different than when you are out at a restaurant. The hearing aids deal with unique types of background noise, so you can enjoy conversations without struggling to hear. Getting your hearing checked is easy and painless: call for a free assessment at 613-446-4198. Let us know when you’re having difficulty hearing and we’ll assess your hearing with the latest technology. We’ll walk you through the results of your hearing exam and answer any questions you have. You might simply need a few strategies for certain listening situations, and we’re happy to share these with you, however, if hearing aids can help, we’ll show you your best options.. If you’re interested, call us at 613-837-9902 for your no charge hearing test.
