Pleas for city tax freeze fall on deaf ears

By Greg Kielec The average city resident will pay $35.68 more on their tax bill this year. The figure is a result of a 1.5 per cent tax increase arrived at by Cornwall city council after a marathon three-hour budget meet- ing at city hall last Wednesday evening. Administration had proposed a two per cent tax increase in a $145 million budget after months of committee meetings and cuts to various departments. But for many councillors, two per cent was simply too much. A push for a tax freeze by Councillor Andre Rivette, and a road map from Coun- cillor Leslie O’Shaughnessy show how council could reach the elusive “zero” number was shot down by the majority of council members. But a majority of council members were able to push through a half per cent cut by using $258,000 more of last year’s surplus to offset this year’s tax increase. The pro- posal by Councillor Glen Grant reduced this year’s tax hike to 1.5 per cent. A subsequent attempt by O’Shaughessy to reduce the tax hike even more by con- tributing cash from the anticipated sale of the former Si Miller Arena land was voted down by a majority of council. O’Shaugh- Rivette motion for ‘zero’ budget voted down at special council meeting

think our external auditors will also advise that that low.” Councillor Elaine MacDonald said taxes “get a bad rap” as she railed against seek- ing further budget cuts. “Every time I hear zero per cent tax increase I shudder,” she said. “We have to start thinking of the taxes being the relief.” Rivette was supported by O’Shaughnessy, Councillor Maurice Dupelle and Council- lor David Murphy, but they were outvoted the remaining councillors and Mayor Bob Kilger. But the tables were able to push through Grant’s motion to use surplus funds to achieve a 1.5 per cent tax hike. A cost-cutting measure introduced by Thibault at the end of the meeting also failed to gain traction. Thibault was de- rided by a number of council members for proposing councillors take a five per cent pay cut. O’Shaughnessy said a five per cent coun- cillor pay cut “is peanuts … and that’s not even a gesture. For me to agree to some- thing like this is ludicrous.” Rivette said the proposed cut is “unac- ceptable” and Grant panned the gesture as “tokenism”, and both councillors Denis Carr and Syd Gardiner said they would not support the move. MacDonald said it individual councillors want to give up their council salary, she en- courages them to donate to a charity of their choice or even donate it back to the city.

nessy wanted to use $250,000 from the sale of the former Si Miller site to slice the tax hike to one per cent. He estimated the city would get $500,000 for the land. Rivette initiated the lengthy budget de- bate with an emotional plea to use the city’s operating surplus to achieve a “zero” tax increase budget. He said it is unfair to sad- dle ratepayers with a tax hike caused by “mistakes” over the past year and the cost of severance packages “and all this other stuff.”

“I think it’s only reasonable to take a look at the whole picture. Who will pay? It’s the poor guy who is paying rent, who is prob- ably getting minimum wage,” he said. Adams said the city’s reserve fund would stand at $3.1 million after the city uses $400,000 of surplus funds to bring the tax increase to two per cent. Using more sur- plus tax dollars to avoid a tax increase could leave its reserve fund below $2 mil- lion, she warned. “I would suggest that that’s low and I

Cornwall soccer enthusiasts have moved one step closing to getting their fields of dreams. City council, in a council chamber packed with soccer enthusiasts, endorsed a proposal last Monday night to begin design work for two soccer pitches north of the Benson. The preliminary design work at the site, es- sentially green space adjacent to the multi- sport complex along the Seventh Street extension west of Brookdale Avenue, will cost $20,000. A report by city administration has pro- jected a cost of $1,143,000 to create two fenced and lighted fields at the Benson Cen- tre. But not all of that cost would be picked up by the city. The Seaway Valley Soccer Club and the Kinsmen Club of Cornwall have both pledged to contribute $75,000 each in instal- ments of $15,000 and the 3+1 Fundraising Committee have offered more than $400,000 left over from its fundraising for the Benson Centre, according to a staff report. Staff noted that two natural fields located side by side in Ottawa were tendered in the fall of 2010 and constructed in 2011 at a total cost of just under $600,000. The city has been advised the cost single unlit fields in Ottawa are budgeted at $350,000. As well, according to the staff report, GTI Solutions Group has advised the average cost to construct unlit soccer fields varies subject to soil requirements and local avail- ability of qualified contractors, but would recommend between $450,000 to $600,000 for a double field. Councillor Denis Thibault said he had reservations about the cost of the proposal if

council goes with “the whole enchilada”. He lauded the financial commitment from com- munity groups, but warned there will not likely be federal or provincial funding for the project. Councillor Bernadette Clement agreed that “cost is important”. But council must look at the positive health impact for local children, she stressed. Councillor Maurice Dupelle said the soccer field proposal “is the start of something good that is going to happen. It’s part of making our community more healthy and inclu- sive.” Photo by Greg Kielec Brejana, left, and Mikalah Kisnics listen to Cornwall city councillors discuss a pro- posal for two new soccer fields adjacent to the Benson Centre as they sit with their fa- ther Brad at a council meeting last Monday.

for the elderly “puts people in the hospital,” said spokeswoman MaryAnne Pankhurst, and “it’s all of our business” to prevent it. Many places in the United States mandate their pharmacists to watch for cases of elder abuse often caused by the denial of misap- propriation of key medication. But no such legislation exists in Ontario, said Pankhurst. There are a number of “red flag” scenarios which Medical Arts pharmacists are trained to detect, she said. They could be “record- ing gaps” indicating a lapse of time be- tween prescription requests or problems discovered during an in-home visit by the pharmacist. One example, Pankhurst raised, is a care- giver withholding pain medication out of concern the client may become addicted to the prescription drug. During a home visit, the pharmacist can explain how a patient who is in pain cannot become addicted to pain medication, she said. The pharmacist also looks out for cases of self neglect, like in cases where a senior may abandon conventional medicine for an advertised “miracle cure” for their ailment. There are never guarantees such promised cures are safe and there is also the chance the medication offered is simply a placebo. “It takes a whole community to prevent this sort of thing,” Pankhurst said. alcohol prevention program uses the theme of car racing to teach the importance of say- ing “NO” to young people.

The event takes place fromMonday, April 16 to Thursday, April 19 at the Cornwall Armouries on Fourth Street. Approxi- mately 1,200 students will participate.

It was a celebration with a serious un- derlying message: Elder abuse and how pharmacists can work to spot abuse cases among their clients. Medical Arts Pharmacy held a ribbon cut- ting and cake-cutting ceremony to celebrate some of the city’s eldest citizens at its 13th Street location Monday morning, followed by a ribbon cutting at its Montreal Road lo- cation. The purpose was twofold: to celebrate the lives of five elderly city residents and to also highlight the role pharmacists can play in elder abuse through cases of “medication mismanagement”. To highlight the problem of elderly abuse, Medical Arts brought in three experts to discuss the problem at a press conference at its 13th Street site Monday morning. Speaking were Manon Thompson, re- gional consultant for the The Ontario Net- work for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, Denise Paquette, RN, chair and coordinator for the Prevention of Elder Abuse program with Carefor Health and Community Serv- ices and Const. Krista Millar of the RCMP. Elder abuse and neglect is a nationally rec- ognized public health problem with pro- found negative impacts on community health.

Harper government moving

Fed budget a race to the bottom

has drained the federal treasury of tens of bil- lions of dollars per year in unnecessary tax cuts that disproportionately benefit the most affluent Canadians andwealthy corporations —all the while increasing spending on a Na- tional Security Establishment that now costs $12 billion more a year than it did in 2001. These expenditures have diverted much- needed money from health care, education, pensions, and other public services on which Canadians. The economy has slowed in the final quar- ter of 2011 - 50,000 net full-time jobs have dis- appeared since september 2011. The Alternative federal budget would get Canadians working in good jobs again, strengthen Canada’s middle class, and im- prove supports for Canada’s poor and most vulnerable. Protect public programs that all Canadians rely on - including public health care and public pensions. Manage Canada’s debt-to-GDP ratio without vital public pro- gram cuts and get serious about reducing greenhouse emissions gas. We all know that 80 per cent of jobs are cre- ated by small-medium business. Therefore, we should lower business taxes from 11 per cent to 9 per cent, offering retention bonus, E.I & CPP incentives for new hires and a job creation tax credit up to $4,500 per new hire. that Canadians want and will use regularly. Study after study links poverty with poorer health and higher health-care costs, higher justice system costs, more demands on social and community services, more stress on fam- ily members, and diminished school success. We all pay for poverty... A recent study published by the Ontario As- sociation of Food Banks calculated the cost of poverty Canada to be between $72.5 to $86.1 billion or about 6 per cent of Canada’s GDP. Thus, let’s reduce Canada’s poverty rate by 25 per cent within five years (by 2016), and by 75 per cent within a decade. Let’s work with the provinces to double the CPP’s replacement rates from 25 per cent to 50 per cent of a retiree’s pensionable earnings. This change will be phased in over a seven- year period. Andmost importantly, we need to reassure Canadians that the Old Age Security is viable in the long term and Conservatives must stop fear mongering and making wild claims about higher taxes as excuse to cut benefits to seniors. The attack on public services and jobs are part of a broader agenda by the Conserva- tives to finance the F-35 to the tune of $35 bil- lion and some $15 billion on prison and to make the rich richer at the expense of the many. In fact, the deficit relative to Gross Domestic Product is low, rushing to eliminate deficits and debt can stall our fragile economy. In addition, during a time of unprecedented low interest rates the government should make be investing in much-needed infrasc- tructure renewal. We need a more progressive approach to the nation’s finance; one that is more sup- portive of working families and public serv- ices indeed. The largest job creators are major investments in universal child care, a massive municipal infrastructure fund, and major investments in housing and poverty reduction. Each of these new investments creates jobs but also provides services

To the editor:

The federal budget is the blueprint for how the Government wants to set the an- nual economic agenda for Canada. This federal budget is a race to the bottom budget. It’s anti-public services and anti-job growth. It removes tens of thousands of bil- lion dollars from health care transfer to provinces, it shovels cost to the provinces and it is made possible on the back of the most vulnerable citizens. The Conservative approach to budgeting is very confusing because on the one hand they talk about fiscal prudence and austerity, yet they spend amounts in places that many be- lieve should not be priorities. For example: military jets that are way be- yond our needs and may not even work in the demanding climate of the north; tough- ening up laws while crime rates are going down to put more people in prison at a tremendous cost. Sadly, when budgeting and programming are done from ideoligical perspectives rather that from statistical proof and evidence, the effects on society can last for a very long time. Many, argue that the reduced revenues due to tax cuts (including the reduction of the GST) combined with a slower economy have resulted in a deficit - a situationwhere expen- ditures chronically exceed revenues. It is in this environment that we see the Conserva- tives targeting federal programs and public services for cuts rather than delaying addi- tional corporate tax cuts. Thus, the 2012 federal budget should be fo- cusing on rolling back the corporate tax rates, rewarding job creators, investing on munici- pal infractructures, improving retirement pensions for seniors, and the need to protect public services and jobs. In the past three decades, Canada’s federal corporate income tax rate has been cut by more than 60 per cent — from 37.8 per cent in 1981 down to 15 per cent in 2012. This cor- porate welfare first approach is sold as an idea that all citizens will ultimately benefit. Instead, governments are tackling debt through cuts to public spending and the pub- lic sector, a choice nourished by ideology. In reality, only a very few end up being better off. Corporate tax cuts have been very costly for all of us in terms of foregone government revenues indeed. In 2012-13, the federal gov-

in wrong direction

To the editor:

The Harper government with its $5.2 billion cuts to public services and pro- grams in its austerity budget is moving the country in the wrong direction. The Harper Government is fighting the deficit on the backs of everyday Cana- dians and the public services that they rely on. At a time of high unemployment, the Harper Government should not be throw- ing 19,200 public servants out of work adding to the unemployment rolls. The Conservatives with their huge spending cuts to public services and pro- grams and their plan to raise the eligibility age to receive the old age pension from 65 to 67 are making life less affordable for families and seniors. CUTS WIDENING GAP This austerity budget will have a nega- tive impact on people in SD&SG who are already having a hard time making ends meet. With their fixation on cutting essen- tial public services and programs, the Conservatives are widening the gap be- tween the haves and the have-nots and are making Canada a more unequal society. The government should be working to make life better for all Canadians, not worse. Rather than making reckless cuts to pub- lic services, pensions, and healthcare and spending billions of dollars on prisons and fighter jets, the Harper government should stop the corporate tax giveaways that don’t create jobs, eliminate tax havens and ensure that the large, profitable cor- porations and the wealthy one per cent pay their fair share of taxes. At the present time, the federal govern- ment spends over $18 billion a year on tax benefits for the large, profitable corpora- tions and wealthy individuals who need help the least. That $18 billion could be redeployed to help pay down the deficit and to pay for programs that will promote prosperity and equality for everyone. NO JOBS STRATEGY This austerity budget lacks a comprehen- sive jobs strategy to create and protect good jobs. The best way to create good jobs is to in- vest in a permanent national infrastruc- ture program, provide tax credits to businesses that create new jobs, promote renewable energy jobs, improve job train- ing and apprenticeship programs, create value added jobs in the resource sector, in- vest in research and development and in- novation, and provide good public services. We can build a stronger and more caring Canada when we create and protect good jobs, make life more affordable, improve public healthcare, education and pen- sions, provide a fairer taxation system, and stand up for public services.

ernment expects to collect $33,1 billion in cor- porate income tax revenues, based on a cor- porate income tax rate of 15 per cent. If the corporate tax rate was still at 21 per cent, where it was when the Conservatives took office, revenues would be $13 billion higher. Ironically, personal income tax collected from the ordinary citizens by our federal gov- ernment is to the tune of $114 billion.

Corporate tax cuts have been very costly for all of us in terms

At least, we as taxpayers ex- pect that corporate income tax rate cuts would be re-invested in company operations, boost- ing economic growth, produc- tivity, and jobs.

of foregone government

However, studies have shown that rising corporate after-tax profits have not resulted in increased real investment. Instead, we have seen a big increase in dividend payouts and in financial assets Thus, we must roll back the corporate tax rates to the 2006 level of 21 per cent - when the Conservatives took office. This represents $13 billion in foregone revenues. This rev- enue could be allocated to increasing the Guaranteed Income Supplement by 700 mil- lion to lift seniors in Canada out of poverty and to create a Canada-wide child care and early learning program that would create 25,000 new child care spaces per year for the next 4 years.

Photo by Greg Kielec Yanick Laliberte of the Hawkesbury Hawks jostles Cornwall Colts netminder Lukas Hafner to earn himself a goaltender interference penalty just 13 seconds into the first period at the Ed Lumley Arena in Cornwall last Wednesday night. Colts take 2-0 series lead against Hawks By Greg Kielec They are a team that likes to play on the edge, but the undisciplined play of the Hawkesbury Hawks may lead them to the precipice. A steady stream of penalties has left the Hawkesbury Hawks with a two-game deficit in their Central Canada Hockey League semi- final versus the Cornwall Colts. The Hawks fell to the Colts for a second game in a row Friday night. They received 19 penalties and were outshot 32 to 24 in a 3-0 loss to the Colts in Hawkesbury. The Colts were back home Monday night and at Hawkesbury Tuesday night. Game re- sults can be viewed by going to www.edi- and clicking The Journal. Tyson Spink opened up the scoring just 1:27 into the first period Friday and helped set up brother Tylor’s powerplay marker with just over two minutes left in the period. Tyson Spink scored the only goal in the sec- ond period, a powerplay marker assisted by Michael Borkowski and Stephen Johnson. There was no scoring in the third period, but there were plenty of penalties. The two teams combined for 102 minutes of penalties, in- cluding sixmisconducts handed out with just 16 seconds left in the game. The Colts won the first game of the series lastWednesday evening in Cornwall, another chippy affair which resulted in a one-game suspension to the Hawks’ Brandon Bussy and a suspension for the remainder of the series to Ty Perry. The Colts took an early 2-0 lead lastWednes- day only to see the Hawks battle back to tie the game 2-2 before the end of the first period. The Colts added twomore in the second pe- riod, but this time managed to keep the Hawks off the scoresheet to head into the third up 4-2. They added added one more goal in the final frame to win 5-2. The Colts’ depth was a definite factor in the game: Five different Colts — Mark Rath, Mark Hough, Tylor Spink, Kyle Baun and Michael Borkowski — all netted goals. The Hawkesbury Hawks racked up 34 minutes of penalties, the majority of them in the first and third periods, compared to just 14 levied against the Colts. The Hawks’ Remi Elie was called for check- ing a Colts player to the head midway through the first period and Ty Perry received a match penalty for a booming hit which left Mark Rath lying on the ice dazed for a few breathless second just Inside the Hawkesbury blue line in the third period.

seraient des mots qui ne voudraient plus rien dire. Grâce à eux, grâce à l’accompagnement qu’ils prodiguent en tout temps, la société peut avancer, ne serait-ce qu’en matière de services sociaux, où leur aide est particulière- ment utile et appréciée. DEPUIS 1943 La Semaine de l’action bénévole a été proclamée pour la première fois en Angleterre, en 1943, pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Alors que les hommes étaient au combat, les femmes avaient pour mission de tenir le fort dans plu- sieurs sphères de la vie, dont le domai- ne humanitaire. La paix revenue, l’idée de consacrer une semaine spécifique à l’action bénévole devait refaire surfa- ce dans les années 1960, partout dans le monde. Ce n’est qu’en 1990 qu’une date fixe, située au mois d’avril de cha- que année, a été décrétée pour signifier le point culminant de l’action bénévole à travers le monde.

La Fédération des centres d’action béné- vole de l’Ontario propose, du 15 au 21 avril, la Semaine de l’action bénévole. Sous le thème Votre présence fait la différence , cet événement a pour but de reconnaître la contribution des bénévo- les à la société en leur disant tout sim- plement merci. Dans le cadre de cet événement, plu- sieurs activités de reconnaissance sont organisées afin de remercier les milliers de personnes qui chaque année s’inves- tissent corps et âme dans le bénévolat. Avec ses salons du bénévolat et ses campagnes de financement, l’organis- me permet au public participant de se renseigner et d’adhérer à cette grande cause s’il le souhaite. UN APPORT INDÉNIABLE Grâce à leur altruisme, au temps qu’ils donnent aux autres, à leur énergie, à leur action individuelle et aux coups de main qu’ils apportent en toute cir- constance, les bénévoles font beaucoup pour la société. S’ils n’étaient pas là, la solidarité, l’empathie et la compassion

Together, Ensemble! Les communautés les plus généreuses bâtissent les meilleurs hôpitaux. La Fondation de l’Hôpital de Cornwall s’est engagée à recueillir 3,5 millions de dollars pour doter l’Hôpital communautaire de Cornwall d’un appareil d’IRM et d’une table d’urologie numérique. Nous croyons que les résidents de toute la région méritent de jouir de l’hôpital le plus moderne et complet, doté de la technologie la plus récente en imagerie diagnostique, près de chez eux.
