in an email to The Journal. Councillor Glen Grant, who also sits on the waterfront committee, said meeting appears to have driven the final nail in the coffin of the condo proposal. “Based on the meeting, I would say yes, it’s not going to happen,” he told The Journal Friday. But the overwhelming opposition during the public sessions were no surprise, “just from the public opinions given to me prior to the meeting,” he said." It was pretty well what I thought it was going to be,” he said.

It appears a proposal to build condo- miniums on a parking lot east of the Cornwall Civic Complex is dead in the water. About 300 people showed up for two public consultation sessions at the civic complex last Tuesday to discuss the plan, and the majority of them were not im- pressed. The session was proposed late last year after the city’s Waterfront Development Committee ap-

The proposal had been discussed heavily during waterfront committee meetings the latter half of 2011, according to committee minutes, but only became public when brought to council late last year. Committee member Roy Perkins first proposed developing the site at a June 16, 2011 committee meeting. He raised the proposal again at an Oct. 20, 2011 meeting and then at a Nov. 17, 2011 meeting, ac- cording to Waterfront Development Com- mittee minutes. Veteran councillor Denis Thibault was one of the waterfront committee members who saw first had the wrath of residents worried about the fate of their waterfront. He thought the response to the condo pro- posal was clear. “On the issue of land next to civic com- plex, it was obvious that the majority who were in attendance were not supportive of private enterprise development and espe- cially not in favour of condos,” he wrote

the development. The survey will be posted on the city website for another few weeks. It is a concern raised by Bill Beattie, who was turfed from the waterfront committee during a purge of members in favour of pro-development members after the last municipal election. “I don’t trust them, so I don’t really know how it’s going to go,” Beattie said Friday. “I have no confidence in this com- mittee -- none, none.” But Grant scoffed at the notion that the online survey would be manipulated to achieve the committee’s desired results. “That’s not going to happen,” Grant in- sisted. If political leaders hope to gain the trust of the public, they should consult the com- munity more often on issues important to them, Thibault wrote.

The condominium or com- mercial building was pro- posed for the city’s waterfront between the civic complex/aquatic centre and Marina 200. I hope that the Waterfront Development Committee got the message that local resi- dents do not want private developments on our down- town waterfront parkland

If this ill-considered proposal by the Wa- terfront Development Committee is ap- proved, it will open the door to other private developments on our downtown waterfront parkland, including a hotel and more condos.

only the rich condo,suppliers, builders and buyers. This was modelled after Blockhouse Is- land in Brockville. They have a lot going on in their water- front. I am sure it wouldn’t cost to much to learn from them. The newwaterfront committee forgot why they are there. They are there to save our waterfront for all of us not the few rich, for example build- ing suppliers, builders and those that could afford to buy a condo in that prime area of Cornwall.

Re: City waterfront report:

Brian Goodfellow

What happened to the ideas that were brought forward by the previous water- front committee? There was an excellent article in both of Cornwall’s weekly papers from Gerry La- herty. It reminded us of an excellent plan to have great river views with easy auto access for the public year round,called Lookout Point or Pointe Maligne Lookout. This would be used by all of the people of Cornwall. This is our land for the benefit of us all not I would like to again give a big thank- you to the man who found my purse which I had left in a grocery cart. I just prior stumbled while putting gro- ceries in my trunk hurting my knee. After bringing the grocery cart back to the stall I placed my hand to my knee and re- turned to my car. It was not until I was a few blocks from the store I realized I had left my purse. I returned in a panic and was distraught when observing empty grocery carts in the stall.

Tip leads to big shoreline bust

By Greg Kielec

A tip about suspicious activity at a Sum- merstown shoreline residence resulted in a big pay off for the Cornwall Regional Task Force on May 17. Police were tipped that contraband was being off loaded from a vessel into an awaiting van. Upon arrival, members stopped a vehicle leaving the scene which contained 422.1 kg of fine cut tobacco and 50 re-sealable, clear plastic bags containing approximately 200 contraband cigarettes each. Police also seized 0.6 grams of marijuana, 43 LSD tablets, pepper spray and $500 of counterfeits $20 bills as well as a 2003 Dodge Caravan. Both, the driver of the vehicle, Clive Nel- son Gabriel, 20, from St. Laurent, Que., and the passenger, Evan Robertson, 21, from Laval, Que., were arrested for the posses- sion of unstamped tobacco. Robertson and Gabriel were charged with offences related to the evidence seized and were held in custody pending their respec- tive bail hearings. In the early morning hours on May 18 while conducting vehicle and vessel patrols along the St. Lawrence River, CRTF mem- bers observed a boat approach the shore- line subdivision, South Glengarry. A short time afterwards, members ob- served an Ontario plated van speeding away from the area where the boat was be- lieved to have attended. DRIVER BAILED As members attempted to stop the vehicle for further investigation, the vehicle came to a stop near Charlottenburgh Park, and the driver fled into the woods. OPP Police Dog Service and Emergency Response Team members attended the scene and located the driver later identified as Daniel Malette, 24, from Cornwall. CRTF members also apprehended a sus- pect who attempted to flee on foot. The suspect was later identified as Claude Menard, 30, from Lancaster. A total of 120 cases of unstamped tobacco were seized along with two older model vans. Malette was held in custody pending a bail hearing and was charged with being in possession of contraband cigarettes, failing to comply with his probation order and two counts of failing to comply with his Re-

cognizance. Menard was released from custody on a promise to appear. He was also charged with being in possession of contraband cigarettes. On June 5, CRTF members were called to an OPP Highway Traffic stop on the west- bound lanes of Highway 401 near Long Sault.It was believed that the driver, Kevin Smart, 32, from Akwesasne, was transport- ing contraband cigarettes. CRTF members subsequently arrested Smart for being in possession of six cases of contraband cigarettes. The vehicle, along with the contraband cigarettes, was seized. Smart was held in custody pending his bail hearing given he is currently awaiting dis- position on similar charges dating back to November 2010. On June 12 while assisting RCMP Valley- field members in the Bainsville area, CRTF members observed a boat approaching the shoreline. A short time afterwards, a pickup truck was observed departing the suspect loca- tion and a traffic stop was initiated on the eastbound lanes of Highway 401. The truck was found to contain 34 cases of cigars of a variety of flavours. The driver, Tevin Terrance, 19, from Ak- wesasne, N.Y. was arrested, charged and held for his bail hearing for being in pos- session of the contraband cigars.

CONDOS: Continued from Page 3 “Doing it once every few years is not enough. It also means that when we do go out for a consultation, numerous people are left with impression that decisions are al- ready made which is not the case.” One area of development where there ap- pears to be public consensus is the oil tank lands along the river just west of the Corn- wall harbor. “On the issue of area where tanks used to be, it seems that as long as ALL ball dia- monds are left alone, that development as per what is already in the approved water- front plan is supported by the majority,” Thibault wrote. Thibault also reacted to criticism, espe- cially from city lawyer Etienne St. Aubin, leveled at committee members, some of whom were accused of being in conflict of interest by people attending the public ses- sions. “I was really disappointed in the com- ments of a once respected lawyer who at- tacked the volunteers,” wrote Thibault, who lauded the work of volunteers work- ing on city committees. “Attacking elected officials is acceptable to some extent but attacking community vol- unteers is just not something that a person should be proud of, especially when the at- tacker happens to also be a volunteer on other city committees.” Lee Cassidy, waterfront committee chair, said in the press release issued by city hall that she was “thrilled with the turnout and lively discussions” that occurred at the ses- sion. “Clearly, the community has a keen inter- est in the waterfront. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to attend and participate in this important discus- sion,” she said. Renewed focus on oil tank lands Follow @gkielec on Twitter.

Landscaping with a plan One of the biggest regrets of hom- eowners is undertaking a landscaping project without a plan. It can also be one of their costliest. Sometimes the error lies in unpleasantly posi- tioned plant arrangements or the cluttering effect of too many gaze- bos, arches, and paved walkways. Or the mistake might be in leaving the yard barren of interesting features. Amateur landscapers and avid gar- deners can boost their chances of backyard beauty by consulting with a landscape architect or contractor and then realizing their projects based on professionally designed plans. A landscape designer will know how to incorporate your needs, budget, and the special features of your land into a final plan that will enhance your property and increase its mar- ket value. One of the advantages of entrusting the design of your

project to a specialist is having access to all the latest trends. If you love summer suppers on the deck, a land- scape designer might suggest creat- ing an outdoor kitchen with dining area, storage, and work area. If you have young children, your plan could include a play area that makes clever use of limited space. Before the ground is even broken, a professional landscape design will allow you to imagine your yard when all the plants have reached maturity. And, of course, if you have the bud- get or you doubt your own abilities, you can always hire a landscaping contractor recommended by your designer to bring your dream yard into reality!

Raymond Chartrand et Denis Lalonde renouvelleront leur second mandat. « Nous attirons ce que la communauté a de mieuxàoffrir.MmeProvostesttrèsconnue dans notre communauté, il en est demême pourM.Bourdon »,apartagéMmeHébert. Les CSCE est un organisme à but non lucratif qui s’étend sur cinq parties de l’Est ontariendont Cornwall, Alexandria, Bour- get, Crysler et Embrun. « C’est une belle augmentation, le ré- sultat d’un travail d’équipe. Étant dans un milieu anglophone dominant, nous valorisons la langue française à travers toutes nos activités », a déclaré Roxane Berthelot, directrice de l’école secondaire publique l’Héritage de Cornwall. Administré par l’Office de la qualité et de la responsabilité en éducation (OQRE), le TPCL est un test provincial, fondé sur des normes, qui évaluent les habiletés en lecture et en écriture des élèves. Le test détermine si ces habiletés attei- gnent la norme minimale en fonction des attentes et contenus d’apprentissage du curriculum de l’Ontario devant être ac- quises avant la fin de la 9e année. La réussite du TPCL est une exigence pour l’obtention du Diplôme d’études secondaires de l’Ontario.

« C’est une approche qui fonctionne. Une récente étude a démontré que les visites au CSCE ont diminué de 22 % à l’urgence », a déclaré la présidente du conseil d’administration Paulette Hébert, lors de l’assemblée annuelle du Centre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie qui se déroulait à l’hôtel Best Western de Cornwall, le 12 juin dernier. En présence d’un public d’environ 150 personnes provenant des différents points de services des comtés de Prescott et Russell et de Stormont, Dundas et Glengarry, Mme Hébert a su tirer les grandes lignes de la dernière année. Plusieurs des objectifs fixés en ter- mes de prévention ont été atteints, dont celui du diabète. « Le diabète est une maladie chronique que l’on peut préve- nir. Nous avons atteint notre objectif de 60 % de la clientèle qui a passé les tests de dépistage », a affirmé Mme Hébert. Tous les sites du CSCE offrent le pro- gramme d’éducation sur le diabète (PÉD). Le CSCE a passé avec succès l’agré- ment BOS (Bâtir des organismes sains), un examen exhaustif des normes léga- les des pratiques en milieu de santé tous les trois ans.

Il s’agit d’un gain de 4 points de pourcen- tage. « Le Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) est fier de voir le taux de réussite de ses élèves au TPCL aug- menter d’année en année », a souligné le président du Conseil, M.

ques », a commenté Mme Villeneuve. Que de bons commentaires de la part des visiteurs qui sont ressortis avec de petits dépliants en mains et quelques connaissances de plus en tête. « C’était très intéressant, surtout pour le diabète », a partagé Thérèse Houde, à propos d’un kiosque offrant des explications sur le sujet. « Ce que la Caisse populaire disait à propos des prêts était très bien », a con- fié pour sa part Murielle Frappier, au sujet d’une présentation donnée par la Caisse populaire de Cornwall. Anne-Marie Paquette de l’Équipe psychosociale offrait des détails sur les services de soutien offerts aux fa- milles. « Les gens s’arrêtent pour leurs enfants et aussi leurs petits-enfants », a commenté Mme Paquette. Parmi les autres ateliers visant l’équilibre du corps et de l’esprit : « Dé- velopper samémoire », par Joëlle Perras de la Société Alzheimer et le programme « Vie Active » donné par Tania Sveistrup. Le Salon des aînés était présenté par le CSCE et l’équipe du Centre Charles- Émile Claude. C’était un évènement éducatif et social à la fois qui, sans nul doute, gagnera en popularité au fil des ans.

Quelque 150 personnes se sont déplacées tant pour socialiser que pour apprendre quelque chose de nouveau. La variété des kiosques, une ving- taine, combinée à une augmentation de la visibilité, ont contribué à la hausse du nombre de visiteurs au 4 e Salon des aînés qui se déroulait au Centre Charles-Émile Claude, jeudi dernier. Linda Newman, présidente du con- seil d’administration du Centre Charles-Émile Claude, considère que cette édition dépasse les attentes. « Les gens sont intéressés aux ateliers, aux activités. Pour le spectacle de la con- teuse, il y avait 75 personnes », a-t-elle commenté. La conteuse Céline Boudreau-Payé, du cercle de conteurs de l’Est ontarien, était invitée pour l’occasion. Elle a su faire revivre une tradition en racontant les histoires de nos ancêtres. Ivan Labelle, du Centre de santé com- munautaire de l’Estrie (CSCE), présentait des leçons de vie sous forme d’exposé, avec une touche d’humour

propre à lui. « Ce sont de petites phrases bien simples, qui viennent d’une dame, une Américaine nommée Regina Brett, qui a publié ses 45 leçons de vie. À la fin, je vais demander aux gens de penser à six choses importantes dans leur vie », a-t- il partagé en feuilletant ses notes, songeant à la manière d’apprécier le mo- ment présent.

Suzanne Villeneuve du Centre cultu- rel de Cornwall a apprécié l’énergie en matinée, la période la plus achalandée de l’exposition. En tant qu’exposant, c’était une belle plateforme pour faire connaître les acti- vités culturelles. « C’est très bien organisé, il y a différentes choses pour tout le monde, les gens ont aimé les kios-

veut que notre langue soit là pour un autre 100 ans », a lancé d’un trait le président de l’AFO, une phrase clé qui clôturera son discours sur une note opti- miste. L’AFO a pour mission d’être la porte- parole de la communauté francophone de la province, avec un réseau de 200 membres, parmi lesquels associations, institutions et individus forment un tout. L’AFO est un organisme provincial à but non lucratif, créé en 2006. Elle est née de la fusion de l’Association canadienne- française de l’Ontario (ACFO) et de la Direction de l’Entente Canada-commu- nauté Ontario (DECCO), deux organismes provinciaux qui représen- taient les francophones de la province.

Le président du conseil d’admi- nistration de L’AFO, Denis Vaillancourt, a rappelé l’impor- tance de faire la demande des ser- vices en français lors d’une présen- tation donnée lors de l’assemblée annuelle du Cen- tre de santé communautaire de l’Estrie (CSSE).

« Quand je ne clique pas sur la version française d’un site Internet, c’est une occasion manquée », a fait valoir Denis Vaillancourt, président de l’Assemblée de la francophonie de l’Ontario (AFO), lors d’une présentation à l’hôtel Best WesterndeCornwallmardi delasemaine dernière. « Chaque geste fait avancer les services en français. » Invité à présenter un plan stratégi- que pour les cinq prochaines années, lors de l’assemblée annuelle du Centre des services en santé de l’Estrie (CSSE), M. Vaillancourt a illustré par des exem- ples simples l’impact sur la demande des services en français. «Quand je prend le téléphone, je demande à être répondu en français. Tout est compté », a-t-il décrit. Quelques chiffres en mains à l’appui, M. Vaillancourt précise que la défini- tion du terme francophone a changé au fil du temps. « Les nouveaux arrivants qui parlent français sont comptés parmi les francophones, ce qui donne aujourd’hui plus de 580 000 francopho- nes en Ontario seulement », a-t-il affirmé. Le cœur de la mission de l’AFO de- meure de rassembler les forces des différents secteurs d’activités, afin d’as- surer la pérennité de la francophonie de l’Ontario. M. Vaillancourt a mentionné, parmi les objectifs des prochaines an- nées, la réalisation d’actions communes de l’ensemble des secteurs, dont le sec- teur de la santé. Une autre stratégie de l’AFO sera de mobiliser l’ensemble des forces de la francophonie ontarienne, tout en gar- dant en tête les gens qui reprendront le flambeau dans l’avenir. « On souhaite que l’Ontario soit désignée totalement bilingue un jour. Il faudra chercher du leadership chez nos jeunes. Ça prend de la relève dans la francophonie », a déclaré M. Vaillancourt. Parmi ses rêves les plus grands, le président ne souhaite rien de moins que la continuité de la langue française. « On
