CORNWALL | The City of Cornwall is mourning the loss of one of the commu- nity’s great sports ambassadors. Si Miller, the former director of Parks and Recre- ation with the City of Cornwall, passed away on Saturday. He was 84. “He was a mentor to me and to many other people,” said Christine Lefebvre, the current Division Manager of Parks and Rec- reation, who worked alongside Mr. Miller prior to his retirement. “He played a big part in developing the parks and recreation sys- tem in Cornwall that we all know and enjoy today.” Some of the many accomplishments that were achieved under Miller’s tenure include the development of Guindon Park, Marina 200 and Cornwall’s popular recreational path. He also brokered partnerships with local service clubs to develop the Opti- mist and Legion parks and the Lion’s Club Bandshell in Lamoureux Park, among other things. An avid hockey, lacrosse, softball and baseball player, Mr. Miller served as the City’s Parks and Recreation Director from 1963 until his retirement in 1994. His devotion to sports and the com- munity extended well beyond his job. Mr. Miller actively participated in Cornwall’s mi- nor hockey program, coaching teams from Atom to Juvenile and taking on the role of Director. He also served as Director and President of the Ottawa District Hockey As- sociation, as well as a Director of the Cana- dian Amateur Hockey Association. Mr. Miller’s contribution to sport was rec-

jurisdiction over federally-owned lands. A hearing for this matter has been set for March 21 and the City intends to defend against the application. Trillium Distribution Cornwall Inc. has launched an appeal of the Interim Control Bylaw to the Ontario Municipal Board. A hearing date for that matter has yet to be scheduled. On February 18, the City issued orders to comply and stop work orders at the storage tanks site to prevent further work from proceeding and to have the owner and contractor comply with the Interim Control Bylaw. These orders have not been followed and as a result, the City is presently considering further action.
