No secrets too big for local historian


It’s a book that is bound to contain several interesting secrets. Local historian Sara Lauzon has been un- dergoing the systematic research of Sydney Street, one of the city’s most historically rich roads, with some houses on it dating from as far back as the last century. She hopes to complete a book on the subject, in the near future. “It’s a big project,” explained the woman. “It all started when I discovered that my grandmother lived in two different houses on Sydney Street. It just pickedmy curiosity!” Since then, Lauzon has researched several of the majestic residences and has uncovered some interesting facts, seemingly lost to history. “Several of the residents of Sydney Street were owners of businesses on adjacent Pitt Street,” she said. “You had grocery store owners, soda shop owners, but also doc- tors, lawyers and so on. There were a lot of important people living on this street.” The historian’s research has led her to tour several of the houses, in the hopes of uncovering more of their history. “So far, I’ve been given tours of four dif- ferent houses,” she expressed. “They all look wonderful and it was very interesting. In one of them, I even managed to find old phone numbers in the basement.” But not everything is easy to find. Lauzon stressed that the biggest obstacle she faces is researching what has disappeared. “There was a whole section of Sydney Street that disappeared,” she said. “The section from Water to Sydney was entirely demolished for the shopping centre’s parking lot. In the process, they tore down houses and altered the park that was there.” In addition, the local historian said that not a lot of archives are left regarding the forgotten portion of Sydney Street. “It’s just hard to research something that isn’t there anymore.” But even though the area appears to have

been lost to history, Lauzon stressed that local residents have beenmore than helpful in her quest to find information. “Everyone is so helpful,” she said of the people that contacted her and gave her im- portant leads and information. “I’ve found out somuch about the big park that used to be there and I’ve come across some heart- warming but also sad stories.”

The woman also gauged the interest of lo- cal residents by providing historical walking tours of the street last summer. “I had an amazing turnout,” she said. “People were really fascinated by the many stories of Sydney Street.” But Lauzon’s quest is far from over, for

she still needs to research a good amount of properties before she canwrite the definitive history of Sydney Street. The historian is asking anyone who has information regarding Sydney Street to contact her via her website, at www.corn-

Deal will make it easier for St. Lawrence College students to study in Mexico

St. Lawrence College Senior Vice-President,Advancement and Business Development, Gordon MacDougall and Raul Martinez Hernandez, president of the National Association of Technological Universities of Mexico (ANUT), signed a Letter of Intent on November 18, which will make it easier for students and educators in both countries to study abroad. The new agreement will expand on existing joint projects between St. Lawrence College and Mexican Polytechnic Universities such as co-op studies, exchange of academic material and scholarships for Mexican teachers to learn at St. Lawrence College. “Our partnerships with other countries is an important part of the St. Lawrence College experience and we’re excited to work with partners like ANUT to provide more opportunities for our students,” said Glenn Vollebregt, president and CEO of the St. Lawrence College. Mexican Polytechnic Universities will also explore dual credentials and joint credential programs with St. Lawrence. The latter has been working with Mexican Universities for several years. This year, the College is hosting three Mexican students studying in diploma programs and 19 students involved in a pilot project through a partnership ANUT. – Francis Racine

Drought finally over As of December 7, the South Nation Conservation (SNC) has lifted the 6-month drought advisory triggered by a dry spring and summer. Since June, SNC’s Water Response Team, composed of representatives from municipal and provincial government, the agricultural community, and other special interest groups, frequently met to discuss the drought conditions and the noted impacts to the community. The drought advisories began in June, as a possible water supply problem (Level 1) was identified. As the dry weather continued, the SNC jurisdiction was upgraded to a moderate drought advisory (Level 2) and in late-August, the western part of SNC’s jurisdiction was upgraded to a severe drought advisory (Level 3). Thanks to a wet fall, the ground is saturated and rivers and streams are flowing, which prompted SNC’s Water Response Team to lift the drought advisory.– Francis Racine

The City of Cornwall recently provided an update on three major road construction projects. Work on the Brookdale Avenue, Fifth Street and Marleau Avenue projects are nearing completion for the winter season and they will be open to traffic, with final touches being completed in early 2017. Given the extensive nature of the work at Fifth Street and Marleau Avenue, both projects were originally scheduled to carry over into 2017. The work on Fifth Street will be substantially completed by December 8, with a final layer of asphalt as well as placement of top soil and sod being done next year. The lanes on the north side of Marleau Avenue are complete and open for one lane in each direction over winter. The remaining phases of this major road widening project will be completed in the spring. Brookdale Avenue should be reopened by mid-December. The final phase involves the installation of new street lighting, and that work is being completed at present.

Meunier, tu dors… ton moulin bat trop vite !


huit heures par nuit est une bonne solution… quand on est jeune. Mais la récente étude du scientifique démontre que, malheureu- sement, la faculté de consolider dans notre mémoire, tout en dormant, les habiletés et informations acquises dans une journée diminue avec l’âge en raison des change- ments qui interviennent sur le sommeil. C’est pendant la phase du sommeil léger que se construit lamémoire. À ce tte étape, les chercheurs détectent la présence de fuseaux du sommeil, sorte de protection contre les bruits perturbateurs. Ces fuseaux sont liés à l’augmentation de lamémoire au

cours de la nuit, y compris à l’accroissement des habiletés motrices, au raisonnement et à la résolution de problèmes. Cette phase représente environ 50 % du sommeil total. Celle-ci diminue toutefois pendant la vieil- lesse notamment en raison de la « pression biologique » comme l’explique Dr Fogel. Parfois aussi, chez les personnes âgées, le besoin de sommeil est réduit. Mais est-ce que toutes les personnes âgées en sont frappées ? Stuart Fogel est formel : « Nous avons étudié les personnes âgées qui sont en bonne santé, sans pro- blèmes médicaux ou troubles de sommeil.

Ce que notre échantillon des personnes étudiées nous montre – et c’est le cas aussi des autres études dans ce domaine – c’est que c’est un phénomène qui touche tout le monde. Alors, tout comme le vieillissement en général, les changements au sommeil et les conséquences sur la mémoire affectent tout le monde. » Ça ronfle ? Gare à l’Alzheimer ! Parmi les troubles du sommeil qui hantent nos nuits, il y a l’apnée du sommeil. Les ronflements, on en rit, ça fait glousser ou pester les conjoints ou les conjointes. Suite en page 6

Local Atom 1B hockey team spreads Christmas cheer

A local Atom 1B hockey team, who looked to spread some Christmas cheer, got quite a surprise on December 7 when they got to meet the Sparky mascot. The team decided to collect toys for Sparky’s Toy Drive, and give back this holiday season. They were rewarded with a tour of the local fire station, lead by firefighters. With detailed demonstrations of equipment and explanations of trucks, including a chance to sit in them, the kids were all certainly very enthralled. The Atom 1B Colts got to give back and deliver some toys to Sparky himself. The kids were all happy to help out in a way in which they could. — supplied photo

QUESTION 1: What 1909 novel is still considered the best-selling Canadian book of all time?

After graduating, Sandra relocated to Regina where she gained the nickname “Schmirler the Curler” and continued to play the sport competitively. She participated in professional curling at the pro- vincial and national level throughout the 1980s. Her career really took off in the 1990s after a series of numerous important wins, and ultimately peaked with her impressive gold medal win in Nagano. In 1999, shortly after the birth of her second daughter, Schmirler was diagnosed with metastatic adenocarcinoma with doctors un- able to determine the primary source of the cancer. She underwent various treatments in an attempt to fight the disease but ultimately died in palliative care in 2000. She has received several posthu- mous tributes including an induction into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame and a renaming of a street and recreation centre in Regina in her honour. Sandra Schmirler’s legacy is carried out through the Sandra Schmir- ler Foundation, a non-profit organization created in 2001 by friends and family members of the regretted athlete. The foundation’s main goal is to raise funds for the purchase of life-saving equipment to help premature and critically ill babies—a testament to Schmirler’s love of family. Her love of curling lives on as well: Sandra’s daughter Sara England carries on the tradition as a competitive curler with a bright future in the sport.

A shooting star in Canadian curling

QUESTION 2: Which province’s name means “swift flowing river” in Cree language?

In the 1990s, Canadian woman’s curl- ing was synonymous with the name Sandra Schmirler. She won three Ca- nadian Curling Championships—the Scotties Tournament of Hearts—and three World Curling Championships

QUESTION 3: Which provincial capital was the first city in North America to use a central emergency phone number—originally 999, now 911—in 1958? QUESTION 4: Which CFL team has won the most Grey Cups, with 16 cham- pionship victories?

prior to leading the Canadian woman’s curling team to victory in the 1998 Winter Olympics. The games in Nagano, Japan were the first ever to include curling as an official sport, making Schmirler’s victory in ‘98 even more significant. However, a little over two years later at the age of 36 Sandra Schmirler passed away due to health complications involving cancer. Her untimely demise shook the curling community and the country as a whole. Sandra was born and raised in Biggar, Saskatchewan. Though she was athletic throughout her childhood, she only began curling in Grade 7. In her formative years she excelled at speed swimming and also participated in volleyball, baseball and badminton. In Grade 9 Sandra joined the Biggar Curling Club’s ladies league and in Grade 12 she helped her high school teamwin a provincial championship. While attending the University of Saskatchewan—where she ob- tained a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education—she made her first appearance at the Saskatchewan provincial playoffs.

Canada’s Austrian community

Austrian-Canadians have been successful in business, sports, entertainment, academics and the arts. Individuals who’ve made notable contributions over the years include: mathematician Paul Mandl; physician and medical researcher Hans Seyle; and photojournalist Walter Curtin.


Canadians claiming full or partial Austrian ancestry numbered 197,990 at the time of the 2011 Na- tional Household Survey. More than a third of this population lives in Ontario, with the largest con- centrations residing in Toronto and Hamilton. Large numbers of Austrian-Canadians can also be found in British Columbia and Alberta, and smaller but still significant populations in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec. The earliest communities of Austrian-Canadians largely settled in Saskatchewan in the mid-nineteenth century. They came across the Atlantic by steamship and quickly adjusted to life on the prairies. Migrants from the early twentieth century weremore urban and tended to locate inmajor Canadian cities. The last and largest wave of Austrians—numbering approximately 67,000—immigrated to Canada just after the Second World War and continued to do so until the early 1970s. Currently, Canada’s Austrian community has several organizations that promote social exchange via planned events in various urban centres. Several German-language newspapers printed within Canadian borders cater to Austrian-Canadians in conjunction with other Germanic groups.

In 1990, the gyrfalcon (Falco rusticolus) became the avian emblem of the Northwest Territories. This largest member of the falcon family winters in the north and primarily inhabits tundra and mountainous areas. Its diet consists mainly of ptarmigan but also includes squirrel, arctic hare and seabirds. The gyrfalcon is quick, strong and has few natural enemies.

Cornwall Transit drivers recognized

Ester de la Mata has been a driver for Cornwall Transit for five years now, and each day presents new challenges. At this time of the year, weather is one of the biggest challenges. But the potential for slippery roads isn’t the biggest concern for the well-trained Handi-Transit driver. “The driving itself isn’t the biggest challenge. It’s helping the passengers and making sure they get on and off the bus safely,” said de la Mata. Like many other Transit drivers, the passengers who board the bus have become more than just customers to Ms. de la Mata. “There’s a personal connection. You get to see many of the same people each day,” she said. “It’s like family.” De la Mata was one of 55 Cornwall Transit drivers and staff who were recognized for their dedication and commitment to safety during the annual Safe Driver / Safe Worker Awards Breakfast on Wednesday morning at the Transit office. Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy, along with other City officials and members of the Transit Committee, were on hand to present certificates and pins to employees with long service, safe-driving and safe-working records. “We want to recognize the level of professionalism Cornwall Transit staff has shown while performing their daily duties,” said Len Tapp, Cornwall Transit Division manager. An average Cornwall Transit operator drives over 40,000 kilometres a year, more than twice the amount of kilometres an average person drives per year.

Un accident coûte la vie à deux hommes de Cornwall Un accident de voiture a co û té la vie à deux jeunes hommes de la région , le 1er décembre dernier, à Glen Walter, tout près de Cornwall. Le conducteur Jeffrey Dobson et Kyle Quesnel, tous deux âgés de 20 ans, ont péri lorsque la Honda Civic, conduite par Dobson, a percuté une minifourgonnette. Une passagère de 19 ans est encore à l’hôpital, o ù l’on craint pour sa vie. Un troisième véhicule, une camionnette, aurait aussi percuté la fourgonnette. L’enquête se poursuit. La Police provinciale de l’Ontario a déclaré que la vitesse et la non-utilisation de ceintures de sécurité sont considérées comme des facteurs importants. L’équipe de la Ligue de football WildCats a affiché ses condoléances sur sa page Facebook, le 1 er décembre dernier, citant que Quesnel avait joué en tant que receveur dans l’équipe, pour ensuite devenir entraîneur pour les jeunes joueurs de division mineure. « Il était un bon joueur, un jeune homme intelligent, a affirmé le président de l’équipe, Kirby Camplin. Il avait un bel avenir. » Selon les policiers, la Civic se dirigeait vers l›est, sur la route de comté 2, lorsque le conducteur a perdu le contrôle de son véhicule. Il est entré en collision avec une mini fourgonnette Dodge, conduite en direction ouest par une femme de 61 ans de South Glengarry. La femme qui conduisait la four- gonnette a également été emmenée à l›hôpital après avoir subi des blessures mineures. Le conducteur du troisième véhicule impliqué n›a pas été blessé. – Francis Racine

Nouveau plan stratégique pour la Ville

La Ville de Cornwall publie maintenant un nouveau bulletin d’information qui fournit de l’information sur les possibilités, les services et les programmes et évènements offerts aux aînés. Dans le cadre de son plan stratégique, le conseil municipal de Cornwall s’est engagé à transformer Cornwall en ville plus amicale envers les aînés. Plus de 700 personnes âgées de Cornwall ont été consultées pour déterminer ce que la Ville pouvait faire afin de faciliter la transformation. À la suite du processus de consultation, des suggestions ont été faites concernant la mise en œuvre d’un plan. Dans le cadre d’une nouvelle subvention du gouvernement de l’Ontario, Jordan Ann Kevan de Haan a été embauchée comme agente de liaison communau- taire amicale de Cornwall. Le rôle de Mme Kevan de Haan est de recueillir et de communiquer des informations pour les personnes âgées dans la ville de Cornwall et de faire avancer la mise en œuvre du plan. En plus de l’embauche de Mme Kevan de Haan, un comité de mise en œuvre communautaire a été créé. Ce comité, composé de membres de la communauté et de membres du personnel de la Ville, se réunira de façon continue pour aider le plan de mise en œuvre communautaire. – Francis Racine

Cornwall to host CJHL Prospects Game

Hockey Canada and presenting partner RBC announced the schedule for the RBC Road to the World Juniors, which includes a game in Cornwall on December 19, at 7 p.m., at the Cornwall Civic Complex. This pre-competition tour of 10 games, ahead of the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship, will extend the excitement of world-class hockey outside of the two tournament host-cities, Montreal and Toronto. In addition to the World Junior Exhibition game, the city of Cornwall will host Team Denmark for the pre- competition camp. Team Denmark will call the Benson Centre home from December 15 to December 23, where they have scheduled multiple practices daily, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. These practices are open to the public at no charge. After the pre-tournament camp, Denmark will move on to the Bell Centre in Montreal, for their first game of the World Juniors on Boxing Day. Frederik Andersen (Toronto Maple Leafs), Nikolaj Ehlers (Winnipeg Jets), Lars Eller (Washington Capitals), and Frans Nielson (Detroit Red Wings) are all players from Denmark, currently playing in the NHL. — supplied photo

The Canadian Junior Hockey League, in part- nership with the National Hockey League and Hockey Canada, recently announced that Cornwall was selected as the host city for the 12 th annual CJHL Prospects Game, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. on January 25, 2017, at Ed Lumley Arena within the Cornwall Civic Complex. The contest will feature 40 of the top NHL Draft eligible players from across the entire 10-league CJHL taking part.The line-ups will see 20 prospects selected from the five eastern- based CJHL leagues (MHL, LHJQ, CCHL, OJHL & NOJHL) taking on top 20 prospects from the CJHL’s five western-based leagues (BCHL,AJHL, SJHL, MJHL & SIJHL).The rosters will be chosen, in partnership with NHL Central Scouting, and will be announced at a later date along with the respective coaching staffs for the two sides.“The CJHL Prospects Game brings together the top draft eligible Junior ‘A’ prospects from throughout Canada for on and off-ice testing and an East versus West game,” stated NHL director of Central Scouting Dan Marr. Having the opportunity to watch an entire group of prospects under one roof will be a huge benefit to all the scouts that will be in attendance. “It is a tremendous opportunity for these players to showcase their ability and represent their leagues and com- munities on a national stage,” added Marr. “We are both honoured and excited to be hosting the Prospects Game and we look forward to creating a dynamic event for the CJHL players being recognized and to continue the proud tradition of Cornwall as a welcoming host city,” offered co-event chair Shawna Mecteau, who is heading up the host committee along with co-chair David Murphy. – Francis Racine
