THE CANADIAN COIN ASSOCIATION HAS ARRIVED IN CORNWALL! 4 DAYS LEFT! PURCHASING ALL GOLD AND SILVER COINS, AND ALL JEWELLERY!
BY: AMANDA GERARD STAFF WRITER
WE BUY ALL GOLD AND SILVER COINS, AS WELL AS GOLD AND SILVER JEWELLERY! NOUS ACHETONS TOUTE MONNAIE EN OR OU EN ARGENT, AUSSI LES BIJOUX EN OR OU EN ARGENT!
The Canadian Coin Association has finally arrived in Cornwall yesterday, and they’re interested in all those coins you’ve kept stored away for the occasion that you would look into them! Well, that occasion has arrived. Bring your coins to The Canadian Coin Association, and have one of their nu- mismatic professionals assess their current market value in the collectible market, FOR FREE! Canadian and American coins minted before 1968, can fetch significant prices with interna- tional collectors based on; condition, collectability, and metal content. Because they represent a large database of collectors on an international level, they are able to make on the spot pur- chases on their behalf! This week, you could be turning that old jar of coins into a vacation! While in Vancouver, British Columbia, CCA was able to offer $79,000 for an 1893 Morgan Silver dollar minted in San Francisco. This specific coin is highly sought after in uncirculated condition, mainly because not many were minted in San Francisco that year. Collectors are willing to invest top dollar in order to add this gem, and other coins of its kind, to their collections. Recently, they were able to offer $30,000 for a Canadian twenty cent piece from 1858. Why? Because the collector, from Austria, had everything but that ONE coin for his series of 17th century Canadian coins and was willing to pay top prices to complete his set. Those two stories are just the tip of the iceberg for their coin experts. A silver dollar from 1948 can fetch anywhere from $500 to $13,000 based on it’s condition. Collectors are eagerly looking for pre 1968 proof sets, coins with specific mint marks, coins from specific years and international gold coins. Don’t even get them started on the 1921 Canadian fifty cent piece! Coins are their middle name. For a fee of $0 (that’s right, its free), you can bring that coffee tin full of coins to our educated team of numismatist’s, and find out if you’ve been harbouring a very well kept secret! Even common coins can have a significantly higher value than their currency due to their silver content. Silver dol- lars, fifty cent pieces, quarters, dimes, even nickels are garnering maximum value. With the silver market higher than it’s been
in thirty years, it’s definitely the best time to turn old coins into a healthy pay day! Because they have the time and space to do so, they have included bullion assessment in their services. The Canadian Coin Association is able to make offers for your scrap silver. Old tea sets, stamp collections from the Franklin Mint, and silver bars, are all examples of items that could be purchased on the spot! It’s a bullion boom, and everybody’s winning! CCA’s International collectors are also seeking gold coins from around the world. Maple Leafs, British Sovereigns, Kruggerands, Double Eagle gold coins and Gold Francs, are all examples of gold coins they are looking for on behalf of our col- lectors. Because of their success within the numismatic com- munity, they are also able to offer maximum value on all other gold as well. With the gold market at over $1500, all of your bro- ken gold, scrap gold, jewellery, even dental gold, can be turned into quite the fist full of dollars. What are you waiting for? Bring your coins and bullion into our numismatic professionals to have them evaluated. You just may end up having some fun, and walking out with enough for that vacation. Only 4 days remain so don’t miss out!

Longest season for Seaway
By Greg Kielec A report on how to curtail idling of pub- lic works vehicles needs a little more fine tuning, according to city councillors. The report was presented to council re- cently to illustrate how the implementation of Global Positioning Systems in public works vehicles could save the city money by reducing the idling of vehicles. But Councillor Glen Grant said the report lacks information on what is an acceptable duration of idling. “I’d like to see what those standards are and what are the expec- tations for the drivers,” he said. Councillor Denis Thibault said “we owe it to the taxpayer” to examine the best prac- tices of other municipalities regarding fuel conservation measures. He also asked what the payoff was for a $45,000 a year software package to track vehicle usage. Public works manager Norm Levac said GPS systems have been installed in 70 per cent of public works vehicles, the majority of them vans, tandems and dump trucks. The tracking units have saved the city $46,000 to $69,000 so far, he said. Councillor Bernadette Clement also wanted to see more information, but said the work done so far “is a good starting point.” More city hall news on Page 6.

The St. Lawrence Seaway was open for a record 284 days last year, according to the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation. The 2011 season, which ended on Dec. 30 with the arrival of the Algoma Spirit in Lake Ontario after transiting the locks on the St. Lawrence River, was one day longer than the previous record set in 2006. The shipping tonnage increased by 2.5 per cent last year, according to the Seaway. A total of 37.5 million tonnes of goods were transported along the St. Lawrence Seaway in 2011. It is the second consecutive year that both traffic and tonnage have increased on the Seaway. “In addition to advances in cargo vol- umes, we achieved a good deal of progress in 2011 on a number of other fronts,” , said Terence Bowles, Seaway president and CEO, including a new labour deal which was extended to early 2014. “In October of 2011, a new three-year labour agreement was ratified, extending to March 31, 2014. We reached a fair settle- ment that controls our costs and ensures that our customers can continue to experi- ence reliable service,” Bowles said. Collister Johnson, Jr., administrator of the U.S. Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation, noted the tonnage on the Sea- way had increased two years in a row. “This is the second consecutive year of in- creases in Seaway traffic and tonnage, re- flecting the resilience of the North American economy,” Johnson said. The 6th Annual Aultsville Winter Film- fest, is set to run from Feb. 17-19. All of the film festival screenings will take place at Aultsville Theatre this year. The Winter Film Festival will highlight some of the best international and inde- pendent films of the past year. Six diverse feature films will be screened over the three day event. The festival will also continue its tradition of featuring short films by local students and artists before each feature presentation. “We are very excited to hold the festival at Aultsville Theatre this year,” said Melanie Baker Brown, filmfest co-ordina- tor. “The festival is a benefit for Aultsville Theatre, and we are thrilled to be able to The Journal
Special photo The St. Lawrence Seaway enjoyed its longest shipping season on record last year -- 284 days, one day longer than the previous record set in 2006.
The tug -barge combination John Spence - Niagara Spirit was the last vessel to transit the Welland Canal, clearing Port Colborne on Dec. 30 at 8:26 p.m. on its way to Lake Erie, according to the Seaway. The St. Lawrence Seaway’s positive mo- mentum remained intact in 2011, with ton- nage volumes rising by 2.5 per cent to reach an estimated 37.5 million tonnes, according to the Seaway. Trade patterns exhibited a number of show feature films at this beautiful venue,” she said. Aultsville Theatre president Syd Gar- diner, said it makes sense to hold the festi- val at Aultsville Theatre. “It will be an amazing weekend event for the entire community.” The weekend pass includes admission to all six film screenings, plus an afternoon luncheon, and an on-stage gala reception on Saturday evening. The festival provides opportunity for film lovers to escape for a weekend and meet old friends and new. Weekend passes are $100 and are on sale at the Cornwall Civic Complex box office or by calling 613-938-9400. Film selections will be announced shortly in both the local press and at www.aultsvil- letheatre.com.
changes, most notably with iron ore and coal becoming export commodities due to strong overseas demand, the Seaway noted. Grain volumes decreased overall by some 6.4 per cent due to a decrease in the amount of U.S. grain moving via the Seaway. Strong increases in the volume of bulk liq- uids, salt and scrap metal contributed to an overall cargo increase of 930,000 tonnes for the system’s 2011 season. firstname.lastname@example.org

Police seize firearms
CRIME SCENE News in brief from the Cornwall and area police services
By Greg Kielec Two Cornwall men face a number of charges after a late-night raid last week by Cornwall police’s emergency response team searching for stolen firearms. Police seized three firearms in the raid at a home on St. Felix Street around 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 16. Nicholas Bourgeois, 20, is charged with possession of stolen property, unauthorized possession of firearms, unauthorized pos- session of a restricted weapon, careless stor- age of a prohibited weapon and break, enter and steal firearm. Andrew Gates, 19, is charged with posses- sion of stolen property, unauthorized pos- session of firearms, unauthorized possession of a restricted weapon, careless storage of a prohibited weapon and break, enter and steal firearm. Guns found in raid by emergency response team from city police The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Council has successfully concluded negotiations with New York State to reduce the New York State Police detail assigned to the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino. The agreement creduces the detail from 17 officers to five officers, according to a post- ing on the tribal council’s website. “The tribe will achieve a significant cost savings in policing fees paid to the state of New York,” said Mark Garrow, tribal chief. In recent years, the tribe has seen signifi- cant increases in state policing costs. Prior to that, the Tribe paid between $2 million and $3.4 million per year. The reduction in the state police casino de- tail will result in an approximate 60 per cent reduction in policing cost payments to the state. New York State Police had been providing casino policing service since the casino opened in 1999. When the Tribe and the state entered into the gaming compact, the Saint Regis Mo- hawk Tribal Police were not certified to en- force New York criminal law, according to The Journal

Saint Regis takes over policing of casino
the posting. Since then the Tribal Police have been certified. The Tribal-State Compact contains a pro- vision allowing for tribal police to assume criminal jurisdiction, once they were certi- fied. “The tribal police are now able conduct the public safety function in the casino,”said Tribal Chief Randy Hart. “We are confident that they will do a fine job.” For many years, the tribe has raised objec- tions that the number of state troopers as- signed to the casino. They believed that the number was unrea- sonably high and not justified by the num- ber of actual criminal calls coming from the casino. “The state pretty much ignored those ob- jections,” said Tribal Chief Ron LaFrance. “But with the change in administration last year, we’ve been able to move forward on this issue.” Under the Tribal-State Compact, for the tribal police to assume casino policing du- ties, it required the agreement of New York State. Governor Cuomo’s staff came to the table prepared to negotiate in a way not seen previously, the posting read.

City councillor reaches ‘the tipping point’
By Greg Kielec As city residents exchanged gifts and en- joyed time with family over the Christmas holidays, Leslie O’Shaughnessy was con- templating his political future. “I reached the tipping point in December of last year,” the city councillor and veteran of municipal politics said in an interview with The Journal. “And during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, I gave great consideration to resigning my position on council.” His contemplation of such drastic action, less than a year after being sworn in as a city councillor, was borne out of frustration with the city’s handling of the Diane Shay whistleblower case leading up to and follow- ing the city’s guilty plea in October 2011. “The last year has been dominating my life and it’s not been fun,” he said, explaining his insistence on transparency and accountabil- ity has made him a target at the council table. “It’s frustrating. It is to a point that maybe I don’t want to be associated with the deci- sions being made. I’m just not quite sure how to deal with it,” he said. He has “some thoughts” on the way things transpired since he was first was elected back in November of 2010, “and certainly 2011 has not been the shining point in my political career,” O’Shaughnessy said in a candid, 84-minute interview at his home Sunday. “And you have to remember first of all that began with the Diane Shay incident which I was totally unaware of until I was told . . . on Jan. 17 (2011).” O’Shaughnessy became so frustrated with a lack of information being provided council members, he began walking out of closed sessions of council when votes were being taken. He complained that there were “no written reports, no written recommendations and (I was) just left in the dark to formulate ques- tions on issues that I was not prepared to ad- dress,” O’Shaughnessy said. Under such circumstances, “I have no alter- native but to walk out,” he explained. Follow @gkielec on Twitter.com for breaking news. O’Shaughnessy considered resigning over the Christmas holidays last year
By Greg Kielec Leslie O’Shaughnessy has said pub- licly what no city official has be will- ing to say to an employee vicitmized by the city after blowing the whistle on abuse at Glen Stor Dun Lodge. “Diane Shay is owed a very sincere apology from both council, administra- tion and the city of Cornwall for what she has been through over the past year,” said the city councillor in an in- terview with The Journal on Sunday. Shay, a senior manager with the city, was harassed and intimidated by ad- ministration after reporting a case of abuse which occurred at the lodge on May 25, 2008. She went on medical leave after re- ceiving two disciplinary letters from then human resources manger Robert Menagh in the span of two months in late 2008. Seven months later the city ef- fectively fired her by eliminating her position. She was reinstated in September 2009 after filing a civil suit against the city. The city and Menagh were charged Jan. 15, 2010 by the province with violating whistleblower protection for Shay. The city pleaded guilty to the charge late last year after spending $208,494 in legal expenses. The city also spent $19,024 in legal expenses pertaining to Shay’s civil suit. The charge against Menagh was dropped. O’Shaughnessy went as far as to say he felt Shay had been persecuted by the city for doing the right thing. “She has been persecuted for doing something . . . for others,” he said. “The easy thing for Diane Shay to do would’ve been to walk away.” “I don’t think people understand what persecution is like. You are talking about your health, both physical and psychological.” “Hopefuly Ms. Shay will be able to work her way through it.” City owes Diane Shay an apology: O’Shaughnessy services, including human resources, for the Owen Sound. Since his retirement in 2006 he has done a great deal of consulting work with munici- palities on HR issues on an as required basis. Fitzpatrick said Levesque will be working with the city on part-time basis. He is ex- pected to work two days weekly. A new human resources manager is expected to be hired within three months, Fitzpatrick said. The city announced Menagh’s departure on Jan. 11 after a tumultuous end to 2011. Menagh’s job was rumoured to be in jeop- ardy ever since news leaked out over a human rights tribunal decision against the city as well as a civil suit and subsequent guilty plea by the city in the Diane Shay whistleblower case late last year. The terms of his departure were not re- leased by the city.

He also, in a first from any city official, said the city owes Shay an apology. Direction needed on HR’s new direction?
By Greg Kielec The city has reached out to a former city employee to help administration transition the departure for human re- sources manager Robert Menagh two weeks ago. Dail Levesque, a former city labour rela- tions officer with extensive experience in municipal administration, began work Thursday with the city. Paul Fitzpatrick, city chief administrative officer, confirmed the hiring when ap- proached by The Journal after this morn- ing’s budget committee session at city hall. He said Levesque will bring a wealth of experience to his temporary posting. From 1991 to 1996, he served as manager of labour relations and employee relations with the city of Gloucester. Fom 1996 to 2006 he served as director of administrative he said, but he added: “I don’t know of any new direction being set.” Councillor Glen Grant was equally vague about the newly arrived upon direction. “We agreed on the recommendation from the CAO,” he said after Friday morning’s budget session. But when asked if he could describe what that new direction is, Grant replied: “I don’t know.” But he said it is up to administration to set the new direction for the city’s human re- sources department. “Direction for the departments, the CAO brings recommendations. We question and get clarication on that direction,” he ex- plained. As a caveat, he said it was important that human resources respond “to facts and not faces, because once you bring a face into it, it distorts facts and if you look at issues we have gone through, faces seem to have got- ten in the way of the facts.” firstname.lastname@example.org
The new direction city hall announced it was pursuing in the wake of human re- sources manager Robert Menagh’s firing appears to be nebulous. The Journal spoke to a number of city of- ficials last week about the new direction an- nounced in a press release two weeks ago announcing Menagh’s firing. None of them appeared to be on the same page concern- ing the announcement. “Your guess is as good as mine,” said vet- eran councillor Andre Rivette when asked what is the new direction. “There is no di- rection given by council to administration.” He said a purported new direction was not mentioned in the closed session council held prior to Menagh’s termination. Councillor Leslie O’Shaughnessy also wasn’t familiar with any new direction. “I was not in the room when the vote was taken . . . in regards to (Robert) Menagh,”

Cupid arrived on the scene a few years ago and now you and your loved one have decided to unite your destinies. However, where to start..? Here are the ABCs of the essentials to help you plan your big day. Remember, a ceremony as important as a wed- ding requires 12 to 18 months of preparation. The first thing to do is decide on a date and then organize a meeting between the two families. Establish a bud- get, the guest list and who you want as w i t n e s s e s . Decide where you would like to hold the reception and find a place for the ceremony itself. During a meeting with the celebrant you will be able to find out which documents will be required. Start shopping for the bridal gown, tuxedo and accessories for both the bride and groom six to ten months before the big day. Think about hiring caterers and draw up a menu with them (remem- ber the cake!) Don’t forget to hire an entertainer and a disc jockey or orchestra to create a festive atmosphere. Choose your wedding bands, con- sider flowers, car rental, a hotel room, reserve your honeymoon and make sure you have valid passports! Time flies! Only three months before the big leap. Have you thought about sending out the invita- tions? Or how about gifts for the guests; the bridal bouquet; the master of ceremonies; speeches; hair, nail and make-up appointments...the mar- riage contract?! Only one week left: Pack your suitcases, check the seating arrangements with the person in charge, review the small details and, the night before, go to bed early so that you’ll be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for your big day.

Although Azheimer’s disease affects 500,000 Canadians at the present time, the general population still knows relatively little about this progressive, degenerative illness. January, Alzheimer Awareness Month, is a perfect time to find out more about the way memory loss affects those touched by the disease and their families. Over the years many myths have evolved about Alzheimer’s. Unfortunately, these myths have only added to the stigma attached to the illness and stand in the way of our ability to understand and help its victims. It is a commonly held belief that Alzheimer’s is hereditary, yet while there is a risk factor, only 7 percent of cases are associated with the genes causing the disease. Another myth is that Alzheimer’s only affects older people. Of course, there is a link with ageing, but not every senior develops this illness. Indeed, people have been diagnosed with the so-called “late onset” form of the disease in their forties and fifties. Contrary to what many people believe, memory loss does not automatically mean that you have Alzheimer’s. During the ageing process it is normal to forget things. It is only when this memory loss interferes with daily activi- ties and is coupled with difficulties in decision making and reasoning that it warrants medical attention. Some people also think that their lives would virtually be over if they were to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. But many people with the disease live meaningful, active lives. Early diagnosis, medications, a suitable living envi- ronment, services, support, and special activities all contribute to improving the quality of life for the victims of Alzheimer’s disease. Myths are sometimes a long way from reality

By Greg Kielec The Cornwall Colts shut out the division leading Carleton Place Canadians Thurs- day then outlasted the Kemptville 73s with a 7-4 victory to remain within two points of first place in their division.

The GM, whose identity will remain anonymous until the event has vowed to give V:I:P a taste of their medicine by making MPW Champion Frank Couture defend the title in a match he will not be able to prepare for.

vision with a convincing 4-0 victory over Carleton Place Thursday evening in Corn- wall, in a game where the Colts were never really challenged. The Cornwall Colts scored early in the first period and made good use of their power play to steal two points from the Robinson Division leading Carleton Place Canadians tonight. The Colts’ top scorer Tyson Spink got the home team on the board just over two min- utes into the game with a marker assisted by Kyle Baun and Michael Borkowski. The Colts added two more goals in the second period, the first by Borkowski on the power play, the second an even-strength marker by Tyson Spink. The Colts added one more on the power play in the third period, a point shot by
Michael Wooley which eluded Carleton Place goaltender Joe Yetman to make it 4- 0. Colts goalie Lukas Hafner was not tested often but made some key saves to preserve the shutout, especially while shorthanded. The win moved the Colts ahead of the Brockville Braves and within two points of the Canadians in the Robinson Division. But the Braves managed to keep pace with victories over league-leading Nepean Raiders on Friday and the Hawkesbury Hawks on Sunday. The win on Sunday gave Cornwall 69, with Carleton Place sitting in first with 71 points. The Colts fell behind once in the first pe- riod and again in the second periodbefore leaving Kemptville behind for good with a
three-goal third period on Sunday. Trent Durocher put the Colts ahead on a marker fromMichael Wooley and Billy Ul- rick at the 5:36 mark of the third period. Tyson Spink and Stephen Johnson added insurance goals less than a minute apart near the end of the third. Also scoring for the Colts were Brandon Howes, Michael Borkowski, and Kyle Baun with two. The Colts’ next game is at home against the Kanata Stallions.They are in Ottawa to play the Junior Senators on Saturday evening before heading to Carleton Place for an afternoon game against the Canadi- ans on Sunday.

Une hausse potentielle des taxes municipales de 2,38 % Katina Diep CORNWALL
de dollars représente la hausse prévue en salaires et avantages sociaux qui seraient accordée aux employés municipaux, a précisé Mme Adams. « Une augmentation de 2,38 %, soit l’équivalent de 56 $ par année n’est que le début du processus, a commenté la conseillère Bernadette Clément. Je ne me prononcerai pas tout de suite, car c’est encore trop tôt.» Elle soutient toutefois que tout est une question d’équilibre. « La ville offre une panoplie de services. Nous aidons aussi les gens dans le besoin », a-t-elle ajouté. « Nous devons de plus songer à nos investissements dans les infrastructures de la ville. Si nous ne faisons pas attention, nous ne serons pas en mesure de payer. »
Le premier jet du budget municipal de Cornwall présenté le 16 janvier dernier, suggère une augmentation de 56,13 $ du compte de taxes des résidents, montant basé sur une hausse de 1,26 million de dollars, soit 2,38%. La hausse serait justifiée en majeure partie par la hausse des salaires et avantages sociaux des employés municipaux, a expliqué la directrice générale des services financiers Maureen Adams, lors d’une réunion du conseil municipal la semaine dernière. Une augmentation de 1,7 million

américaines. Cette affaire a été transférée à l’Unité des produits de la criminalité du Détachement de Kingston de la Gendarmerie royale du Canada (GRC) pour faire l’objet d’une enquête plus poussée. · Le 3 janvier 2012, par suite d’une intervention routière ciblant la circulation commerciale et menée par la Police provinciale de l’Ontario, Marshall McComber, 23 ans et Evan Williams, 20 ans, tous deux de Kahnawake, au Québec, ont fait l’objet d’accusations en vertu de la Loi de 2001 sur l’accise. Ces accusations ont été portées au terme de recherches ayant mené à la découverte de leur fourgon grand volume de location, lequel contenait quelque 6 000 livres de tabac haché fin. · Le 4 janvier 2012, Michael Somerstein, 55 ans, de Williamstown, en Ontario, a été intercepté par des membres du GTR de Cornwall et trouvé en possession d’une hache. Une enquête menée sur Michael Somerstein a permis de conclure qu’il était soumis à une ordonnance de probation. Il a par la suite été accusé d’avoir enfreint l’une des conditions de son ordonnance de probation et a été mis en détention en vue d’une enquête sur le cautionnement. · Le 4 janvier 2012, Joseph Lavare, 22 ans, de Bombay, dans l’État de New York, a été intercepté alors qu’il quittait une résidence de Cornwall et a été trouvé en possession de vingt caisses de cigarettes de contrebande. Des accusations ont été portées contre Joseph Lavare en vertu de la Loi de 2001 sur l’accise, et le véhicule multisegment 2004 qu’il conduisait a été saisi. Plus tard ce jour-là, des membres du GTR de Cornwall ont obtenu et exécuté un mandat de perquisition pour fouiller la résidence de Cornwall, à la suite de quoi Robert Cole, 45 ans et Robyn Jacco, 29 ans, résidants de Cornwall, en Ontario, ont calculée pour la collection des déchets et le servicederecyclage,autreservices justifiant la variation du niveau des taxes municipales. Au chapitre de revenus additionnels, la municipalité anticipe un montant de 1 milliondedollars,dontlamoitiéproviendra d’un remboursement d’une prime d’assurance de la Great West Life, qui pourrait atténuer l’augmentation des taxes. En ce qui a trait aux capitaux prévus pour l’année 2012, la municipalité touchera un montant de 3,7 millions de dollars en revenus provenant des taxes sur l’essence du gouvernement fédéral, soit une hausse de 1,4 million par rapport à 2011. La municipalité bénéficiera de revenus d’opération de l’ordre de 90,4 millions de dollars pour la nouvelle année, dont près de la moitié proviendra des revenues de taxation.
Suite de la page 14 Le conseiller André Rivette, quant à lui, est d’avis que la municipalité devrait présenter un budget sans hausse. « Je ne suis pas d’accord avec cette augmentation, a-t-il déclaré. Je veux avoir un budget à zéro, c’est possible. Nous avons dépensé de l’argent sur des choses comme des frais d’avocats,qui j’estime,pourraientatteindre lemillionde dollars. Si c’était plus contrôlé, nous n’aurions pas besoin d’augmenter les taxes. Chacun doit être conscient de l’argent dépensé.» Les revenus provenant des taxes du secteur résidentiel représentent une proportion de 55,5 % du budget pour l’année en cours, soit 30,1 millions de dollars, comparativement à 55,18 % en 2011.

GTR de Cornwall, Georges Raymond, 28 ans et Frantzy Jean, 27 ans, tous deux d’Ottawa, en Ontario, ont été arrêtés pour possession de marihuana. Georges Raymond a par la suite été accusé d’avoir enfreint les conditions de son ordonnance de probation. Frantzy Jean a quant à lui été accusé d’entrave au travail d’un agent de la paix pour ne pas avoir donné son vrai nom aux membres du GTR de Cornwall quand ceux-ci l’ont abordé initialement. Frantzy Jean fait également face à trois chefs d’accusation pour avoir manqué à se conformer aux conditions de son engagement. Georges Raymond et Frantzy Jean ont été mis en détention en vue de leurs enquêtes sur le cautionnement. · Au terme de trois autres enquêtes distinctes, dont deux portaient sur des produits du tabac de contrebande et une sur une saisie de drogue, aucune accusation n’a été portée contre des personnes compte tenu du fait que les quantités visées étaient minimales. Les personnes dont le nom figure ci- dessus et qui ont été accusées d’avoir enfreint les dispositions de la Loi de 2001 sur l’accise font également face à des accusations de possession de cigarettes non marquées en vertu de la Loi de la taxe sur le tabac provinciale. Le GTR de Cornwall continue d’examiner les plaintes des résidants de la région au sujet d’activités suspectes. Quiconque remarque des activités suspectes est prié de communiquer avec le GTR de Cornwall au 613 937-2800 ou avec Échec au crime au 1 800 222-8477.

été arrêtés. Ils ont tous deux été accusés d’avoir violé la Loi de 2001 sur l’accise en étant en possession de trente caisses de tabac de contrebande. Outre le tabac, les membres du GTR de Cornwall ont saisi une camionnette 2003 et environ 4 200 $ en devises canadiennes. · Le 9 janvier 2012, des membres du GTR de Cornwall en patrouille à Glen Walter, en Ontario, ont aperçu un véhicule suspect stationné près de l’église Precious Blood. En s’approchant, ils ont surpris Christian Searle, 21 ans, de Summerstown, en Ontario, en train de fumer de la marihuana. Christian Searle a été trouvé en possession de plus de 30 grammes de marihuana et a été accusé d’avoir contrevenu à la Loi réglementant certaines drogues et autres substances. · Le 10 janvier 2012, très tôt le matin, des membres du GTR de Cornwall ont observé deux hommes non identifiés en train de décharger vingt-huit caisses de cigarettes de contrebande d’une embarcation sur les rives de l’île Hamilton. Quand les membres du GTR de Cornwall se sont approchés pour procéder à l’arrestation des deux hommes, ceux-ci se sont enfuis à bord de leur embarcation. Les produits de contrebande et une fourgonnette 2004 ont été saisis. · Le 16 janvier 2012, après avoir observé le déroulement d’une transaction qui semblait porter sur des produits de contrebande au quai de Cornwall, des membres du GTR de Cornwall ont arrêté Michael Fodey, 25 ans, de Cornwall, en Ontario. Michael Fodey a été trouvé en possession de vingt-quatre caisses de cigarettes de contrebande. Des accusations ont été portées contre lui en vertu de la Loi de 2001 sur l’accise, et la camionnette 1990 qu’il conduisait a été saisie. · Le 17 janvier 2012, par suite d’une enquête menée par des membres du

Ces saisies ont mené à l’arrestation de treize personnes. Celles-ci ont été individuellement accusées des infractions suivantes : · Le 22 décembre 2011, des accusations ont été portées en vertu de la Loi de 2001 sur l’accise contre Timothy McCormick, 30 ans, d’Avonmore, en Ontario, après que celui-ci a été trouvé en possession de 20 caisses de produits du tabac de contrebande. La fourgonnette 2004 conduite par Timothy McCormick a été saisie. · Le 23 décembre 2011, des accusations ont été portées en vertu de la Loi de 2001 sur l’accise contre Brittney Skidders, 24 ans, de Hogansburg, dans l’État de New York, après que celle-ci a été arrêtée au point d’entrée de Cornwall avec une caisse de tabac de contrebande. Il s’est plus tard avéré que la boîte en question était infestée d’un insecte non identifié. La camionnette 2005 de Brittney Skidders a également été saisie. · Le 1 er janvier 2012, un homme, 33 ans, de Rochester, dans l’État de New York, a été arrêté au point d’entrée de Cornwall pour avoir omis de déclarer près de 15 000 $ en devises
