Annual Year in Review meeting

Residential development activity was also high this year with 128 family units being constructed, almost triple the amount in 2013. In addition to subdivision develop- ment, major projects such as Knox City Cen- tre and the Cotton Mill Lofts are helping to attract new residents to Cornwall. Boileau also documented investments in the institutional sector, highlighting major projects at the Hospital, College, CityWaste- water Treatment Plant, Canada Customs and the Seaway International Bridge. “Most of the development in the institu- tional sector will not appear in our building permit totals, but it creates significant eco- nomic spin-off,” said the manager of Corn- wall Economic Development. The meeting was kicked off with greet- ings by Mayor Leslie O’Shaugnessy, who introduced the new city council. Team Cornwall Chair Peter Gault also pre- sented highlights from activities by the lo- cal ambassadorial group over the past year. “Cornwall once again is leading the way when it comes to attracting new invest- ments and new residents,” said Gault. “It starts with the people in the room this morning, but extends to all our ambassa- dors, young and old.” The Team Cornwall Chair also welcomed guest speaker Jean-Luc Brassard, the newly minted Chef de Mission for Canada’s Olym- pic Team in Rio 2016.


CORNWALL | The year’s top business sto- ries were celebrated at the Team Cornwall Year in Review meeting, held on Decem- ber 17. Over 300 community and business leaders were on hand for Cornwall Eco- nomic Development’s presentation which chronicled investments made by well over 150 businesses. “(The year) 2014 was another positive year of growth for Cornwall, with significant development occurring across all sectors,” said Mark Boileau, manager of Cornwall Economic Development. One of the key measures of economic development activity is building permit ac- tivity, and while the final numbers are not quite tallied, the value of building permits issued in 2014 are expected to top $55mil- lion. “The value of building permits issued in

2014 represents an increase of 80% over 2013,” outlined Boileau. “Our Building Per- mit department has processed 715 permits this year, which is the highest total since 1989.” Some of the larger development proj-

ects occurred in the Cornwall Business Park with many industries and distribution centres reporting growth. The Business Park also welcomed Evotech, a new coat- ings manufacturer, as well as Source Wood. Cornwall’s commercial sector saw record levels of growth with Boston Pizza and Future Shop opening in 2014. A new com- mercial plaza by Smart Centres is also set to open in early 2015. Downtown Cornwall remains a vibrant and popular destination with residents and visitors alike, with new restaurants, new shops and the re-opening of Ontario’s old- est inn.

Construction of a new pum

ping station

CORNWALL | A new sewage pumping sta- tion, which will form part of a major sewer rehabilitation project in the area of Elev- enth Street and Grand andMiron avenues, is currently under construction. The new pumping station is being built on the north side of Eleventh Street, just west of McConnell Avenue and it will in- clude state-of-the-art controls and a back- up power system. Once completed, the structure will be about the size of a small shed and the surrounding area will be fenced and landscaped. A new subdivision is planned for the

ager, Infrastructure Planning. In addition to benefitting homeowners in the Grand and Miron area, it will also indi- rectly benefit other sections of the city by redirecting sewage to an alternate outlet and separating storm water. This will create additional capacity in the city’s sewer net-

work. “This will provide a reduction in surcharge levels further ‘upstream’ in the large feeder trunks that service the central, western, northwestern and northern sections of Cornwall,” saidWintle.

northwest corner of McConnell Avenue and Eleventh Street, and the developer is con- tributing to the cost of the new pumping station rather than building a second one. This will result in savings in ongoing main- tenance costs for the city in the future. The new pumping station represents one small piece of a $5 million project that is de- signed to address basement flooding con- cerns. The project started in the summer and will continue into next year. “It is one of the largest infrastructure proj- ects that the city has undertaken in recent memory,” said Steve Wintle, Division Man-

decided to start hosting practices in Corn- wall in order to gain more visibility. The Cornwall canton became official faction of the SCA in 2007. When asked how much members are ex- pected to pay for their equipment, Piette answers: “My husband has probably spent about over $2000 on his equipment! But this includes many of the garb and tunics that he can wear to events. Most people compare playing in the SCA with playing hockey. As for myself, I amnot a fully fledged fighter but I can say I have spent about 300$ on various garbs and equipment,” she high-

ple to try it without having to commit right away. It also lets you see what kinds of items are needed.” In all, there are roughly 50 members in the group, all ranging in different status and standings. “We have active and inactive members,” says Piette. “That means some of us go to events, others help organize events. Some participate in fighting, others will not fight and prefer to participate in arts and sci- ences.” The Society for Creative Anachronism

Being part of the group means that you are in touch with people who not only have similar interests, but who have a strong desire to introduce others to what life was like during the time period that the SCA represents.” The Cornwall faction was started with a couple of members who had experienced the SCA in other parts of the country back in 2004. Two members, Mike Smith and Christine Brewer, started in Winchester but

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an organization that was founded to celebrate what was best about the Mid- dle Ages; honour, pageantry and chivalry, without those pesky plagues and famines of course. The SCA focuses on recreating life from the time between 600 AD and 1650 AD in Western Europe. Members of the SCA are from all walks of life and share a common interest in re- searching and re-creating aspects of life in the Middle Ages. This includes crafts, ar- mored fighting, archery or any other aspect of life,in the Middle Ages, you can think of. When at events, members of the SCA adopt medieval personas that help them get in the spirit of medieval life. They may

adopt a new name for use in the Society, dress in period clothing (called garb) and even develop a background story to explain who they are. The organization consists of 19 “king- doms”, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. The SCA was established in 1966 by some friends who were, of course, history en- thusiasts, science fiction and fantasy fans who hosted an outdoor party in Berkeley, California. The invitation declared a tour- nament, to be held on the first of May, and summoned “all knights to defend in single combat the title of fairest” for their ladies. Everyone enjoyed the first tournament so much that they planned another.

Un anniversaire chargé d’émotions pour l’Héritage FRANCIS RACINE

Le président à aussi tenu à remercier Gérald Samson, pionnier francophone de la région et l’un des individus à qui est revenu la tâche de créer l’institut. «Tout n’aurait été possible sans des gens comme Gérald Samson, un homme qui peut non seulement rêver, mais aussi créer.» Pour remercier M. Samson, M. Génier an- nonça que la rotonde de l’école serait nom- mée en son honneur. «Bonjour ma belle famille, commençait M. Samson devant les personnes présentes. Ce que nous avons bâtit ne se fait pas tout seul, mais en équipe. Ce qui compte n’est pas le travail que l’on fait individuel- lement, mais les projets que l’on crée ensemble.» Le surintendant retraité souligna aussi l’importance que les étudi- ants doivent apporter à l’usage de la langue de Molière. «Gardez en tête que l’utilisation de la langue française est bien importante, dit il. Vous devez maintenir et dévelop- per votre langue francophone.» La fin du discours de M. Samson créa une vraie ovation, chaque individu ap- plaudissant l’homme souvent interpelé comme étant le parrain de l’école. Comme là dit si bien M. Génier lors de la présentation, «M Samson à la francophonie tatoué sur le cœur.»

CORNWALL | C’est devant plusieurs di- gnataires, dont le maire Leslie O’Shaugh- nessy, les conseillers Justin Towndale et Bernadette Clément, Gérald Samson ainsi qu’une centaine d’élèves, que l’école secondaire publique l’Héritage célébrait son anniversaire. Il y a donc 20 ans que l’établissement dessert la communauté de Cornwall. Ouverte officiellement à titre d’école le 19 décembre 1994, l’Héritage fut l’une des premières institutions éducationnelle fran- cophone à être publique. «M. O’Shaughnessy m’a demandé de venir aujourd’hui, parce qu’il ne parle pas français, a expliqué Mme Clément. Mais celui-ci disait vouloir venir, puisqu’il sait que c’est un événement important. On doit remercier les enseignants et membres du personnel pour leurs rôles qu’ils ont joués dans notre communauté. Les élèves fran- cophones dans cette salle font partie de la relève de Cornwall.» Suivant son discours, la conseillère ainsi que lemaire ont tous deux remis une plaque au directeur de l’Héritage, Éric Génier. Ce fut ensuite au tour de Denis Chartrand,

Colts charity game raises more than just money

The Cornwall Colts, along with the Benson Group and several local personalities, raised $720 and more than 350 pounds of food for Saint Vincent de Paul, during the second annual Charity Hockey Game held at the Benson Centre, on December 13. “The Colts organization is more than happy to assist Saint Vincent de Paul, especially heading into the Christmas season,” said Colts owner and head coach, Ian MacInnis. “It’s an opportunity for us to give back to the community.” For the second year in a row, the game ended tied (10-10) with good times and laughs had by players and fans alike.

Local Centre named a Good Food Organization

CORNWALL | The Agapè Centre has joined 36 other organizations from across Can- ada to work for a healthy and fair food system and, in doing so, has been named a Good Food Organization. “We are very excited to have been selected as a Good Food Organization,” said Alyssa Blais, Ex- ecutive Director of the Agapè Centre. “We have been working hard to create a cul- ture at Agapè which places a premium on delivering healthy, nutritious meals to our clients.” Good Food organizations are making a commitment to offer respectful, responsive, and impactful food programs in their com- munities as a way of decreasing hunger, building better physical and mental health,

to work with partners to develop welcom- ing spaces where people come together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food. People learn cooking skills and get their hands dirty in the garden, in ways that expand their taste buds and help them make healthier food choices. Good Food organizations will gain access to centralized resources, customized train- ing as well as a granting stream. The Agapè Centre has undertaken a

number of initiatives to support the con- cept of “good food”. The centre has created and maintains its own fresh garden, and it regularly receives donations of fresh spin- ach and other leafy vegetables from Smart Greens in Cornwall. It has been encourag- ing donations of healthy food items and, wherever possible, has been using fresh, organic ingredients in meal preparation. “We’ve received over 10,000 pounds of vegetables from local farmers and garden-

ers this summer,”said Blais.“Marlin Orchards alone has donated thousands of pounds of apples.” Agapè Centre staff has also been working hard to educate the community about the importance of healthy eating. “Today, there is a lot more awareness about the benefits of making healthy food choices,” expressed Blais. “Good food leads to good health which creates more oppor- tunity for personal growth.”

The program has been developed by Community Food Centres Canada. “We launched this initiative to provide support and inspiration to organizations across the country, whether they be health centres, food banks, or community orga- nizations that are doing important grass- roots food work,” outlined Kathryn Scharf, VP National Programs for Community Food Centres Canada. “We want to amplify these voices and program outcomes to show what effects an investment in healthy food can have.” Community Food Centres Canada is a national organization with the mandate Hammer armed thief robs studio The Cornwall Community Police Service is asking the public for help, following an armed robbery that occurred on De- cember 16.

ARIES You are really helpful at the next few social events. You organize a most impressive Christmas party where pleasure is the name of the game. TAURUS Luck is on your side, so don’t he- sitate to ask your family to contri- bute to a group lottery ticket. You may also realize a family project with your loved ones. GEMINI You don’t always show your sensi- tivity. However, if there is any ten- sion at all in the family, you man- age to placate everyone once and for all. CANCER You bring together family as well as friends. Over the holidays, you successfully unite family members who do not always get along. LEO There is a good chance that you’ll be hosting various receptions and lavishing plenty of attention on your loved ones. Even as a guest, you are generous with your help.
