A journey into Canada’s past

history, labelling herself a history buff. “I always loved history,” she recalled, staring outside at the sunlight bathing the scenery. “But I was homeschooled-based off the American high school curriculum. So I didn’t get to learnmuch about Canadian history.” It was therefore a camping trip that sparked her interest in her country’s past. “While we were camping, we visitedHalifax,” she explained. “That’s where I learned about the Halifax explosion and how important it was. I simply couldn’t believe I didn’t know anything about it or that I’d never heard of it.”

December 6, 1917, started like any other day for residents of Halifax. In the sky, the sun was glowing. No one knew that come nightfall, more than two thousand residents of the city would have died. Halifax, like the rest of the world, was fully involved in the First WorldWar. Serving as the assembly and departure point for transatlantic convoys carrying supplies and soldiers to the war effort overseas, the city was quickly evolving into a giant port and major base of naval operations. In a time of war and devastation, Halifax

was thriving. That all changed in the morning of December 6, 1917.Approximatelysixminutes after 9 a.m., a dreadful miscommunication between two ships in the harbour resulted in a massive explosion, the likes of which Canada has never seen since. Over 2,000 people were killed and 9,000 were injured. The city was reduced to ruins and debris. Struck by the importance of the event, the mother of three started writing. “I had always been very good in English writing,” she bragged, running her hand in her hair.

Entering the Tim Hortons on the corner of Tollgate Avenue and Pitt Street, it’s clear Leah Linderman is an interesting individual. A smile on her face, she introduces herself, before taking a seat at a table. The 24-year-old woman has accomplished something that many want but few attain: she’s a published author. Linderman has always been a lover of

“I started writing the first three chapters before I hadmy children. I then took a break from doing it to give more time to my kids.” But once they were old enough and were all fast asleep, Lindermanwould pound away at her keyboard, typing one to two pages at a time until finally, she completed her manuscript. “It tookme five years to finish Redeemed from the ashes ,” she boasted, a proud smile appearing on her face. “But it sure was worth it!” But although it was typed, the woman realized that she had quite a lot of work left to ensure her novel was successful. “When it was done, I approached a woman at the St. Lawrence College to help me edit it,” she said. “But I couldn’t afford it. So she edited my first three chapters for free and offered me her notes.” From there, Linderman undertook to

edit her own novel. She then decided to self-publish it. “I wanted to have complete control over the creative aspect of the book,” she commented. In addition, the woman explained that more often than not, novels that are picked up by big publishing companies are often set aside for years before finally hitting the shelves of stores. “I didn’t want that,” she exclaimed. “I wanted to know what was happening. I wanted it to be a learning experience for me.” By the looks of it, the writer’s wish was fulfilled. She came up with the novel’s exterior look as well as a promotional video she posted on YouTube. “I had a lot of fun and learned quite a bit!” But her learning experience is far from over. The local writer hopes to write twelve more novels, all of them set in different Canadian provinces or territories and all

relating to an important historical event. For the time being, however, she plans on concentrating her marketing and business skills towards Redeemed from the ashes , which was published on March 8. “I’m hoping to approach the Costco in nearby Quebec,” she said, “as well as the school boards and Chapters.” If all goes according to plan, she should be working on her next novel in three years.

“I want to dedicate three years to each of my novels,” she estimated. So what will her next story tackle? “I’m going to write about British Columbia and the Cariboo gold Rush,” she informed. “It’s something extremely interesting and a topic that is not well-known.” Redeemed from the ashes is available at R & L’s Book Nook, Auld Kirktown, Bible Depot, Amazon, Kobo and Barnes &Noble.

A local science teacher, who has helped rejuvenate the air cadets squadron in Cornwall, has been honoured with a Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers from the Governor General of Canada. Sandy McDonald, commander of the 325 Cornwall Kiwanis Royal Canadian Air Cadets Squadron, was recognized for several

years of dedicated service to cadets. The 29-year-old science teacher at Char-Lan District High School was presented with the honour during a recent ceremony at Rideau Hall. McDonald was one of only 55 recipients to receive the medal during its inaugural year. McDonald appreciated the honour but

added he was caught off-guard. “To be honest with you, it was a bit of a surprise,” he said. “I don’t do it for the recognition.” What he has been “doing” is providing the chance for students to develop under the cadet programand to enjoy athletic and other opportunities theymight not otherwise experience, from learning how to fly gliders to canoe trips and band. “I was an air cadet myself for seven years and I really enjoyed the program. So I decided to come back as an officer to give back and create opportunities for other kids to enjoy cadets,” he said. McDonald started the squadron’s popular biathlon team four years ago and supervises training and competition. For the past three years, the squadron has had cadets advance to provincial competitions, with one team winning silver last year. Seven years ago he resurrected the squadron’s band program, which provides musical opportunities for the students. He also leads twice-yearly canoeing trips that have allowed cadets to explore the Rideau Canal system from Kingston to Ottawa, the St. Lawrence River, Algonquin Park and Frontenac Park. While McDonald is in his final year of a three-year posting as commander of the Cornwall squadron, he plans to stay on as an officer to ensure the band, biathlon team and canoe trips continue to be offered to area youth.

Chewing gum and wearing hats It’s a work of art arriving “just in time” to spare area residents from hunger. Students from Interact clubs, at both St. Lawrence Secondary School and Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School (CCVS), combined efforts with their Rotary Club mentors on April 15, to create a huge tin can statue of Spiderman as their entry in Canstruction Cornwall, an innovative food drive to benefit the Agapè Centre. The Rotary Interact Club statue was one of six entries in the contest, held at the Benson Centre. The team used a template developed by engineer and Rotary Club member, Jeremiah Point, to build the bust. It took seven hours to create using $4,000 worth of canned salmon, tuna and tomato sauce. Cans of food used to construct contest entries will be donated to the food bank and soup kitchen to replenish its stocks. “The kids were really excited about it and had a really good time,” said Josip Kupina, a teacher advisor on the project from CCVS. “It gave them the opportunity to be involved in their community. It was a great rewarding experience for them. We also wanted to make the project look good and be something that reflects well on everyone. I think we were able to accomplish that.” Winners of the judged competition will be announced at an awards gala, May 5, at the Agapè Centre. — supplied photo

The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) Champions for Kids Foundation is a charity that helps level the playing field for UCDSB children and their families. Statistics suggest 12-19 per cent of children in Eastern Ontario are living below the poverty line.

Although costumed super heroes and knights in shining armor walked throughout the Benson Centre, this year’s CAPE theme was a wedding: that of co-founders Carol Grant and Randy Sauve.

FRANCIS RACINE Love was in the air at this year’s Cornwall and Area Pop Event (CAPE). The event held on April 23 and 24 attracted more than 6000 visitors, as opposed to last year’s 3500 participants. But although costumed super heroes and knights in shining armor walked throughout the Benson Centre, this year’s CAPE theme “The local arts community right here in Cornwall has tremendous talent,” affirmed Grant. “We don’t even have to leave Cornwall CAPE, a love story was a wedding: that of co-founders Carol Grant and Randy Sauve. The two weremarried on Saturday in front of a large crowd. Grant, donning a Wonder Woman costume, was lead to the altar by none other than the lord of Sith, Darth Vader himself. Sauve, sporting a bright blue suit, was equipped with Spider Man socks and a Spider Man tie. “This could very well be themost unique wedding Cornwall has ever seen,” expressed Sauve. A Doctor Evil look alike was in charge of videotaping part of the wedding, whereas a man resembling Ace Ventura donned a tutu, much to the delight of the hundreds gathered. Held annually, CAPE features elements of the larger ComicCon and pop culture shows held in cities such as Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto, with celebrity guests, artists, authors, guest vehicles and more than 100 exhibitors. Grant and Sauve are two local business owners, born and raised in Cornwall. Both stressed that they wanted to featuremany of the talented people from their own backyard and they actively sought out many of the area’s artists, authors, artisans and crafters for the event.

More than a hundred residents of Cornwall and its surroundings enjoyed a breakfast at the Civic Complex, in the early morning hours on April 20, during the

annual Children Treatment Centre’s Bike-A-Thon PLUS launch. The Bike- A-Thon PLUS is the second largest annual fundraiser for the Children’s Treatment Centre and has been a community favourite since it began over 31 years ago. It started out as a fun-filled bike rally for families, in support of the Centre’s efforts to help kids in our community, but quickly grew into a bigger event. A number of additional activities are added each year, like horse-back rides, pancake breakfast, barbecue lunch and face painting. This year’s guest speaker was none other than famed Canadian Producer Peter Brian. The latter spoke out about the sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of a teacher, in the 1950s, while he was a student at a boarding school in England. The Bike-A-Thon will take place on May 28, at the St. Lawrence College. — photo Francis Racine

En quatre ans, ce qui a commencé comme une compétition amusante entre une douzaine de restaurants de Montréal c’est vite transformé en un phénomènemondial. « Nous sommes ravis d’être en mesure de partager notre amour pour la poutine avec cette communauté, a expliquéThierry Rassam. Je pense que la meilleure partie est de prendre connaissance des créations des différents restaurants. Nous avons déjà gouté à des poutines asiatiques avec des nouilles croustillantes d’œufs, des poutines de dessert, des poutines de petit-déjeuner et même des poutines qui ne comportaient pas de frites! C’est vraiment devenu un exercice de créativité pour les chefs.» Mais créer une poutine distincte, savoureuse et unique est bien plus difficile qu’on le pense et est donc un exploit. « Les méninges dans ma tête tournent depuis maintenant quelques jours, a déclaré le chef et propriétaire de Truffes Burger Bar, Ahmad Mansorifard. Nous avons quelques idées que nous voulons poursuivre et plusieurs genres de saveurs que nous voulons intégrer dans notre poutine. »

Amoureux de la poutine, préparez vos fourchettes et vos papilles gustatives! Le Seaway Food Festival a récemment annoncé que la Semaine de la poutine se tiendra à Cornwall du 24 au 28 mai. Pour l’occasion, les restaurateurs locaux seront invités à rivaliser d’imagination enmettant au point des recettes de poutines variées. Les participants devront ensuite voter pour leur poutine préférée. Les juges du concours distribueront également plusieurs prix, dont le prix de meilleur poutine et de meilleures créativités. En seulement quatre ans, l’événement, qui est tenu dans plusieurs grandes villes au Canada et ailleurs dans lemonde, est devenu très populaire. « C’est vraiment excitant pour nous d’être en mesure d’apporter un tel événement passionnant et engageant à notre communauté, a déclaré le directeur du Seaway Food Festival, SébastienManigat. Nous serons la plus petite communauté à accueillir la semaine de la poutine. » Deke & Squeaks Bar and Grill, Sports Bar Winner, Truffes Burger Bar, Cuisinier sur un petit pain, Tête Bistro Mouton, Jet Set Pub, Bar Q, Fry Shack Rod, Schnitzels et Eight Zero Zero Lounge Resto ont tous

YOUR HOROSCOPE for the week of April 24 to 30, 2016


ARIES You might decide to go on a trip at the last minute. You need this break in order to sort out your ideas and make a difficult

decision. TAURUS

You may decide to make a few changes within your circle of friends. Fortunately, some of them should finally be able to pay back what they owe you. GEMINI You might have to check one of your bills in order to find a mistake that has been made. You end up devoting a good part of the week to ensuring that the matter is put right. CANCER You finally receive the right health treat- ment, or you start a new diet that suits you and shows some quick results. LEO You’re suddenly quite popular with your friends. If you’re single, you’re surprised to find that your suitors are competing with each other in imaginative ways to win you over. VIRGO Your family takes centre stage in your life this week, as your loved ones are rather demanding. Some projects related to moving will take shape in the not-too- distant future. LIBRA Comings and goings could get com- plicated, or communications won’t always be very clear. Your outspokenness has a powerful impact on your entourage. SCORPIO Sometimes money is a source of con- cern. Don’t hesitate to take the bull by the horns and negotiate with the people concerned in order to solve your financial problems. SAGITTARIUS Everything needs to get done — by yesterday. You won’t even know where to begin tackling things. Just slow down a bit; focus your energies and take things one step at a time. CAPRICORN You might have to replace a colleague who is going to be absent for an indefin- ite period of time. This might be stress- ful, but you’ll benefit from the situation eventually. AQUARIUS You receive some applause after addressing a large crowd. On the other hand, a few people will have the nerve to criticize you. Just remember who you are despite what you hear. PISCES It isn’t always easy to balance work and family life. You have to work miracles with your schedule in order to meet all your responsibilities without disappoint- ing anyone.
