FALL RIVER: Jeff Morrison was true to his word. The Fall River man said he would shave off his beard of 22 years if he could raise $1,000 in support of fellow Fall River resident Diann Robertson, who needs an Islet Transplant. That transplant can only take place in Alberta, so she needs money for her stay out there whenever the doctor calls her to go out. Morrison did that and more. The final count saw his endeavour raise $2,366 for Robertson. In total, the June 24 fundraiser at the LWF Hall, which included a band and silent auction, raised more than $5,000. Before a hearty, supportive group of fellow community members and friends, Robertson and Jeff s wife, Marg, went to town shaving off the beard. Marg said her hubby had the beard for all of the 22 years she had been married to him. Robertson is seen volunteering her time in the kitchen at Dragons Football s Chase the Ace every Friday night. The generosity of the small community has brought tears to Robertson s face. She was still at a loss for words 24 hours later. Words are not enough to describe what this means to me, said Robertson on June 25. What Jeff, Jez, and the rest of the community have done for me is amazing. The crowd at the hall was not big, but their hearts were enormous. I wish there was a way to show my appreciation, but for the moment all I can do is say thank you. Jeff Morrison decided after 22 years he would sacrifice his familiar beard if he could raise $1,000 in a fundraiser for Diann Robertson of Fall River. Pictured, Jeff s wife Marg begins the shave, as Robertson looks on. Robertson needs an Islet Transplant, which she has been approved to have done in Alberta. Through a GoFundMe page and donations made in jars at the LWF Hall, Morrison collected $2,366, while the June 24 fundraiser, which included a band and silent auction itself, raised $5,000-plus in total. Look for the photo gallery on our website, TheLaker.ca. Diann Robertson gives the beard on Jeff Morrison one final shave during her fundraiser, held June 24 at the LWF Hall in Fall River.

2 2 July 2017 NSE decision on Fall River quarry disappointing Councillor Lisa Blackburn is bringing forward a motion to the Environmental and Sustainability committee regarding making flyer delivery an opt-in service. (Healey photo) Exploring making flyers opt-in BEAVER BANK: Councillor Lisa Blackburn is weighing in on the contentious topic of flyer delivery in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). The representative of Middle/Upper Sackville- Lucasville-Beaver Bank told The Laker she will be bringing forward a motion to the Environmental and Sustainability committee, which she is on, regarding making flyer delivery an opt-in service. I m crafting a motion right now for the Environment and Sustainability committee with regards to flyers, flyer delivery, Blackburn said in an interview on June 16 at a local coffee shop in Beaver Bank. It will be looking at making it a by subscription or opt-in only option, where you would opt-in rather than opt-out. I will be asking for a staff report on that at the next environment and sustainability committee meeting. She explained her reasoning behind doing this, despite attempts in the past to do this with no success. The motivation behind doing this is the number of phone calls and s I get from people who don t want them, are tired of having them thrown in their driveways, tired of phoning of the originator of the flyers and cancelling them time and time again only to have them show up the next week. It s very frustrating not just for residents of District 14, but all over HRM. Blackburn said she knows it s a free-speech issue in considering the flyers as litter, which is how it was approached in the past. She s taking a different spin on it. There is a place for flyers, absolutely there are people who live and die by them, they love their flyers every week, she said. The motion I m bringing forward will be giving them the opportunity to subscribe to it. If you want it, call and say you want it delivered to you. If you don t want them, they shouldn t be tossed at the end of your driveway like it or lump it. Services offered: R.

Bill Horne said he was in a meeting on the morning of June 19 with officials from NSE regarding the the application from Scotian Materials and how an approval would be a disservice to Miller Lake West and surrounding communities. He said he got a feeling the more they talked that NSE was leaning towards approval of the project. I spent the morning talking to environment officials, said Horne on the afternoon of June 19. I certainly am disappointed by their decision. I will be working with NSE to ensure that the proponent is in full compliance with every term and condition in the approval. The quarry will be less than four hectares in an industrial area. The 10-year approval includes terms and conditions to reduce environmental impacts and protect public health. Among them are requirements for: monitoring ground and surface water, dust, and noise; blasting limitations and monitoring; and a community liaison committee with representatives from the area. Horne encouraged the community residents to appeal the decision. However, he hasn t decided if he will send in an appeal on his own. The deadline to appeal is July 19. Stacey Rudderham, one of the members of the group opposed to the quarry, said they re not surprised by the decision, although they have found out through the media rather than being contacted by NSE as they had requested. We know that the Premier has been pushing for this be approved for quite some time now so we re not surprised this was their decision, said Rudderham. One thing we are surprised about is NSE isn t doing what they said they would do and that was to notify us. Instead, we re finding out from the media. She said the group will have to take some time to read the approval from NSE before knowing what their next steps are. We re going to read the conditions of the approvals to see what we might do next, she said. This is obviously a political situation. It s really not a big surprise. Rudderham said it s too soon without looking it over to say if they would appeal the decision or not. FALL RIVER: A passion for aviation has led two Fall River youth to join the Dartmouth Kiwanis Air Cadets and they think more of their peers should join. Alexander Lies and Andrew MacKay, both in their fourth year with the program, say their love and zest for aviation and what it provides led them down the path to becoming Air Cadets. I heard about Air Cadets a few years ago and joined up and haven t looked back since, said Lies. MacKay joined because of his friend joining, and also his enjoyment of aviation. He says he s made a few good friends through the program as well. Lies said he enjoys all the experiences he gets out of. It s everything we do from camp, or courses to even meeting new people and learning new things everyday, said the Lockview High student. MacKay said there s a group feeling with cadets. Lies talked about some of the courses they do which can vary from two weeks to six weeks. It s required for every Cadet to take a basic general course, and we both took that, said Lies. The camps the following year are usually three weeks in length, and then the year after that it s six weeks. Both are working towards gaining their flight license before they re old enough to drive a car. We did the entrance exam and we both did really well on that, said Lies as MacKay nodded in agreement. D.E. (Dan) Chisholm REALTOR 128 Chain Link Drive Halifax NS B3S 1A2 c o An independently owned and operated Member Broker of Coldwell Banker Affiliates Canada SUPERCITY REALTY She said the group remains opposed to it and continue to be gravely concerned about what will probably happen at the site to the community and the environmental impacts that will come. It s just a matter of determining of what we can and should do going forward, said Rudderham. Rob MacPherson, President and CEO of Scotian Materials, said he s pleased to have received the approval. I knew it would reach a fair, unbiased, and evidencebased decision, he said. I m quite confident the concerns and the issues put forward through the process have been addressed. We re now looking forward to the operational phase of the project. He said site work will begin immediately, adding not to expect any blasting work for a few weeks yet. We will begin with getting organized to finish the site preparation work, ensure all the environmental controls and protections are in place and adequate for moving into that full operation mode, said MacPherson. It would be a few weeks before we re into blasting and crushing. There s certain steps that have to be taken first to ensure all the baseline data is collected for the required testing and submissions. That will take a few weeks to pull together all that. Once that is all done, we can prepare to do our first blast and get into crushing and production. MacPherson was asked how Scotian Materials plans to keep a respectful relationship with the community. I will be looking to keep an ongoing dialogue, and as part of that we will be setting up a Community Liaison Committee where members of the local community can participate to share any ongoing concerns as well as staying informed on progress through the operations, said MacPherson. We will also be keeping an open dialogue, as we have, through our and website portals for engaging the community. He said they do appreciate all the input received through what was a comprehensive consultation process. He said there was a lot of community involvement, with some opposition. I feel that at the end of the day this approval was evidence-based on the strength of all the input from the consultants and community groups will ensure this is a safe and well-operated operation. Love for aviation leads two youth to Air Cadets We re waiting to hear now if we re accepted. If you get in you can have your pilots license, which is for Gliders, before you get your drivers license. It be really cool to be able to get our pilots license, added MacKay. Lies explained why other youth should think of joining the Air Cadets organization. It really is a great program and gives you a lot of experiences, he said. A lot of the stuff we do is very useful. It s making new leaders. We do a lot of volunteering. Our squadron in particular does a lot of volunteering with other groups, and it s a great feeling. Among the volunteering they have done, said MacKay, includes helping the Lions Club sell Christmas trees; Pancake breakfasts for seniors. We re active in the community, he said. Another good part of being in Air Cadets is you make a lot of connections through camp. You ll make lots of friends too. Lies said he s learned a lot about responsibility through the program. We ve learned a lot about teamwork and being a leader, he said. At our rank now, we re getting to be more in the senior rank sow e have to take more responsibility in our role. I love this program. I just want to keep doing it. For more information on the Dartmouth Kiwanis Air Cadets, call or Lee Castle Plumbing & Heating When your Plumbing is in a Hassle...

3 July GPV students show they re the best at essays FALL RIVER: Three students from Georges P. Vanier Junior High have nabbed the top four spots in the 2017 Turning Points essay contest. Olivia Chute; Heidi Wadden; and Quentin Dawson-Nugent each placed first, second, and fourth respectively and now will have their stories published. The three were ecstatic to learn of their accomplishments. They also received monetary rewards. Wadden s essay was about her grandmother who had cancer and was dying. The essay, titled A song, a breath, and a goodbye, won second place. The three body paragraphs talked about those three things, said Wadden. The body spoke about the song that we sang called Jesus Loves Me; it was my nanny s favourite song. We sang it to her in the hospital on one of her last days. It was really nice because we all got to connect and it was healing for us. The second paragraph was about a breath and how nanny wasn t really talking because she was so ill. It was about how hard to not see her talking because she was such a joyful person. It was about those last breaths she took and how much I reflected on how great she was to me and Olivia Chute; Heidi Wadden; and Quentin Dawson-Nugent (far right) finished in the top four for the Turning Points Essay contest. Also pictured is Teacher Dione Woodrow. (Healey photo) what she did for me. The third paragraph was about the goodbye, the last time I saw her. I told her I loved her. It was hard to say goodbye for the last time with my mom. She said the last paragraph of her essay shows reflection. I just wrote about how true love doesn t have to be between two partners, it can be between a nanny and her granddaughter, said Wadden. Dawson-Nugent s story called My Forever Home was about meeting his parents Chris Dawson and Ron Nugent for the first time. It spoke about going to visit them at their house and the bonding time involved. He was fourth in the contest. It also talked about how much they love me and about all the stuff we did together during that time, he said. It ended by basically saying how much I thought I would remain there and how much I believed it. Chute s first place winning story spoke about her love for water skiing and her participation at the Pan American waterskiing championships last summer. My story was on how I overcame a fear and realized a lot about myself, and how much fun I had in the end, said Chute. It was important as I learned a lot of life lessons. Teacher Dione Woodrow said it shows a lot of talent for three of the top four to be from GPV. I m extremely proud of all the students who entered, she said. They re at an age where they aren t too keen to be putting themselves all out there. This particular writing assignment had to do with personal events in their lives. So these students took risks at their work not only being read, but being published. I think it s great they were proud enough of their stories to go in a book and be read by others. Request for water project extension submitted Several ideas being tossed around to cut cost, find efficiencies says Councillor Steve Streatch Councillor Steve Streatch said he has been busy in the past month with discussions on finding efficiency s and reducing the $3 million over-budget cost for the Fall River water project. He said the request for an extension has been submitted to the federal government. (Healey photo) FALL RIVER: The request for an extension on the Fall River water project has been submitted to the federal government, says councillor Steve Streatch. In the monthly sit-down interview with The Laker on June 19, Streatch said he has submitted the request. We have sent on the application through the province to the feds, so for all intense and purpose that gives us a year s breathing room and the opportunity to find the best possible deal for not only the local residents and the municipality, said Streatch. This project is not in jeopardy. It simply is on a temporary hold. He said there have been several discussions held in the past month with various levels of government and the Halifax Water Commission. At a meeting last week I met with Carl Yates, general manager with Halifax Water, and several of our top staff for an update as it relates to their efforts to find efficiency s to bring the costs down, said Streatch. I was encouraged by what they ve put in front of me. Already they have found close to $1 million in savings, and that quite simply is done by sharpening your pencil a little bit. The Waverley-Fall River-Musquodoboit Valley representative said the efficiency s have been found by shifting the location of some of the pipes, potentially using different technologies as it relates to piping options. Iron pipe was specked in the original tender documents. We re told now that, especially along Hwy 2 where the size of pipe goes down to a smaller size, we can use a welded PCF component, said Streatch. Staff continue to investigate that. He said he s had discussions with the low bidder and there is interest from them to find more efficiency s, and staff is working with them to do that. Streatch said he was encouraged by being contacted from the developer of the Carr Farm family property. He has also offered to contribute financially as it relates to reduce the cost of this project, he said. That can be done by changing some of the details as it relates to routing and some of the piping related to that property. He spoke about the paving part of the tender, which some in the community were intrigued by. In the discussion with staff, I have talked to staff about the paving components, there are two of them, said Streatch. One of the components is obviously the paving to fill in the gaps on the laterals directly across the highway and the other is to repave the project after full completion. In discussions with the CAO, it was identified that could possible be moved into next year s capital paving budget, and not necessarily overburden the local taxpayers. If we can shave off a million, millionand-a-half and we can find a little extra funding from the HRM capital budget next, I think we can still move forward with a complete project, albeit slightly delayed.

4 4 July 2017 THE LAKER EDITORIAL by Darrell Samson MP MP News and Views Dear friends, Last week, I had the opportunity to host the Honourable Jean Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development. We visited a grade 4 class in Porters Lake and toured the Covenant Place Renewal and Support Centre in Chezzetcook. Covenant Place is a support centre that focuses on helping cancer patients recover from treatment, as well as provide counselling to youth and women in abusive situations. We were happy to chat with our friend Margaret Sharpe, the owner of Covenant Place and discuss her experiences with this project. The Minister and I also spoke about opportunities in our riding concerning senior residences and affordable housing. We ended our day at the Black Cultural Centre in Cherry Brook, where we were given a tour by Executive Director Russell Grosse. It was great to share the History of Black Culture in Nova Scotia. Additionally, a few weeks ago I was fortunate to attend the 75th Annual Review for the Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron. I had the opportunity to tour a helicopter and meet with some of the cadets. Thank you for welcoming me in your celebration. I also had the opportunity to attend the Emergency Services Achievement Program Graduation Ceremony at the Sackville Fire Hall. This innovative partnership between the federal government, Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency, and the Sackville Volunteer Firefighters Organization offers youth from various communities the opportunity to return to get school credentials and gain work-experience in our community. Congratulations to all the graduates on your achievement. I was also very happy to announce that the Lake District Recreation Association has finished their elevator project at the Sackville Arena. This project received federal funding through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) Canada 150 Infrastructure Program and received contributions from both the provincial and municipal governments. This project was a great improvement to the facility and I would like to congratulate Bob Rines and all the volunteers at the LDRA for their hard work. I would like to take the time to congratulate a member of our community Mr. Braden Marshall. Braden is 15 years old and is a Grade 8 student at George P. Vanier Junior High School in Fall River, Nova Scotia. Back in March, the Honourable Geoff Regan, Speaker of the House of Commons, launched an essay contest for youth ages The topic of the essay was What Does Parliament Mean to You? Braden was selected as one of the top 6 winning essays from a pool of 250 across the country. Braden won the opportunity to come to Ottawa for a special reception in the finalists` honour. After a long road trip with his father Mark, Braden had the opportunity to meet me, along with the Speakers of the House and Senate and take a tour of Parliament. Congratulations Braden you should be very proud of your accomplishment! Finally, I would like to thank everyone for attending our Town Hall Meeting on June 27th.

5 July Elijah Boulton named Mx. Lockview 2017 Annual fundraiser for Lockview High Prom Committee a rousing success FALL RIVER: It was a fun night for those who crammed into the Cafetorium at Lockview High, and for those who were brave enough to get up on stage at the traditional Mx. Lockview. Mx. Lockview- formerly known as Mr. Lockview- is a fundraiser for the Fall River-based school s Prom Committee, and is one that most Grade 12 students look forward to. This year they had just two weeks to put it together, and everyone involved did a great job. From watching it in the crowd one wouldn t know it was done on such short notice. Elijah Boulton charmed the judges enough with his rapping and other skills to be announced by Mr. Lockview 2016, Lewis Coverdale, as Mx. Lockview This year, to respect gender equality, the event changed it s name to Mx. Lockview. Among those taking part gracing the stage were: Riley Pilapil; Liam Reid; Liam MacCormick; Ben Marsh; Elijah Boulton; Ryan O Hearn; Tyler McKay; Ben Stephenson; Ken Cooley; and Regan McDonald. The participants had a treasure trove of antics they put on display for the crowd from swimming; to guessing the correct answer in a match game; to answer emcees Mark Firth and Alex Bujold s questions during the introduction part of the night; and showcasing the talent they have to wow the judges into picking them. Liam MacCormick also won the fan favourite award as chosen by a selection of cheers from the crowd. Mx. Lockview raised an estimated $1,300 for Prom, organizers said on the morning of June 2.

They also had one cancelled on scene call; one fire alarm activation false alarm; and one motor vehicle collision. I have seen the healing and wellbeing that people have experienced through Katherine s expertise as a CranioSacral Therapist and Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie. The results speak for themselves. I know her to be professional and compassionate. I have referred patients to her, and expect to continue to do so. A contestant on Mx. Lockview sings his heart out for the votes of the judges.

While that may be an annoyance or a headache to some, for Joyful Sounds studio owner/maestro Educator Louise MacDonald it s music to her ears. It means what she initially started in the basement of her home, before moving to its current location on Highway 2 in 2014, is expanding. We ve been outgrowing our space here for quite awhile, which is exciting as it s all about the community, said MacDonald. The classes are full. That expansion is needed to meet the demand from the community for the services and lessons that has come with it. She said when the dentist moved down the road to across from The Lawn Guy that provided her with an ideal opportunity. We approached the landlord and just got the permit for renovation work approved a couple of weeks ago, and now we re going full tilt over there, she said. We can hear and see them. It s really exciting. In the current space, they have one large classroom and two private lesson rooms. With the added space they will be adding one large classroom additional and six private lesson rooms. It s a significant expansion, she said, and it was much needed. MacDonald agreed that the expansion is a good sign that business is brisk. I find it hard some days to realize that we re like this, something that started with me giving lessons in the basement of my home, and now there s coworkers and the community has just embraced it, she said. We re keeping the arts alive and making amazing music with kids and adults. It s a really magical place. It s inspiring. The expansion will mean the hiring of three new staff members. She is hoping to hold an open house with the work completed at the location next door in mid-to-late August. The new spot is expected to be open for the beginning of lessons in the fall on Sept Pete s Small Engine Repair 44 Oakleaf Crescent, Grand Lake REPAIRS TO: We recycle used engines and equipment.

6 6 July 2017 Fun weekend planned for Keloose in WJ WINDSOR JUNCTION: It s shaping up to be a weekend of fun to celebrate not only Canada s 150th birthday, but also Keloose s 40th anniversary this coming August. As the final events are pegged down and scheduled, chairman Nick Yeomans is making a call for volunteers to assist with the events on the weekend of August To make it a success we need to have more people involved during the busy weekend we re planning, said Yeomans. More hands make light work. To add your name to the volunteer list, or to give an idea of things that should be held, please go post on Keloose s Facebook page. Yeomans said those attending Keloose will notice some increased security. The security team will be keeping an eye to ensure there s no underage drinking or illicit drugs making their way to the grounds, he said. Any backpacks or bags being brought to the WJCC will be checked for alcohol and illicit drugs. He also said that parking along Windsor Junction Road will be restricted in certain spots from the train tracks by Windgate Drive up to Fall River Road. Parking is also not permitted in the roadway leading to the WJCC. Currently, the committee has been meeting to plan what they will have for the community to enjoy, including what many tab as the best fireworks show in HRM. We ve been holding fundraisers to raise money for a variety of events, especially to make the fireworks extra special this year with the two big celebrations hitting at the same time, said Yeomans. Volunteers are putting the finishing touches on many events, including: the kids parade; water frolics at the beach at the Windsor Junction Community Centre; the fireworks; food trucks; the entertainment on Sunday leading up to the fireworks; just to name a few of the events being worked on. Yeomans said local community businesses will again be called upon to donate/sponsor Keloose to make it possible. He also said MLA Bill Horne and Councillor Steve Streatch will be contacted to seek their support for the event. PERFORMING ARTS CENTRE LAUNCHED The ribbon was cut to officially launch construction of the Cobequid Arts Centre off the Margeson Road exit off Highway 101 in Sackville on June 14. About 40 people were in attendance at the event. Speakers included Halifax Deputy Mayor Steve Craig; PC MLA Brad Johns, Cobequid Cultural Society President Rae Smith, and GM of CIOE Radio Jim Robson. Event hosted by District 14 Councillor Lisa Blackburn. It was announced that CIOE will be the first permanent tenant of the Arts Centre. (Submitted photo) Thank you.

(Healey photo) Councillor Lisa Blackburn has speed signs for those wishing to have one/ (Healey photo) Councillors Corner Slow down signs available BEAVER BANK: The local councillor has signs aimed at slowing down the motoring public. Lisa Blackburn, the representative for District 14 Upper/Middle Sackville-Lucasville-Beaver Bank, said she has Slow Down signs available to residents in her communities. If you are having speed issues in your community and would like a slow down sign, just give me a call and I ll run one out to you, said Blackburn. I m almost through the first batch of 20 signs that I have, but I can order more. To contact Blackburn, call her at or her at: Monarch development discussed at NWCC BEAVER BANK: A proposed development in the Monarch subdivision in Beaver Bank was a topic for discussion at a recently held North West Community Council meeting. Lisa Blackburn, the representative for the Beaver Bank area, spoke about the development in her monthly sit-down with The Laker on June 15. This is the small development that will be up by the water tower, said Blackburn. It s going to be 17 lots in total I think. It s a development that has been on the books to be built since The delay had to do with the access road which leads to the water tower. There were some legal issues that staff had to work through, but I think we re confident that s been dealt with now, she said. The support is there for the development, said Blackburn. For the most part, I saw support at community council for this one, she said. I certainly haven t had any calls or s about it. Blackburn, Streatch message to grads BEAVER BANK: The two councillors for the HRM districts in our area both wanted to wish graduating students at Lockview High and Millwod High. Lisa Blackburn, the HRM councillor for Upper/ Middle Sackville-Lucasville-Beaver Bank, said she plans to be at a couple of graduation ceremonies, including her own daughter s from Lockview High. The message to grads is congratulations, it s been a long time coming, she said. You have worked very hard. It s time to celebrate, but please celebrate responsibly. Let s make sure we re all here in September to take it to the next level. Good luck to all grads in the years to come. Steve Streatch, who represents Waverley-Fall River- Musquodoboit Valley, agreed. As a father of five sons who has gone through the school system, some who are still in the system, I want to say I am proud of all the graduates here in the riding, said Streatch. My youngest son Samson who was born the very first year I ran for council is graduating this June. It is with great pride that I wish all the graduates the very best in the future. I know we re in good hands with the youth that I have seen over the last number of years. Coding their way to second Chuckie the Beaver made a few appearances at the Beaver Bank-Kinsac Consolidated School s Fun Fair on June 10. There was lots to do for the kids from bouncy castles to plinko to cake walks. With warm weather upon us, the sno-cones were a popular item at the Beaver Bank-Kinsac School s fun fair on June 10. Karina and Brody Coughran were just a few of the many kids and adults spotted with them trying to stay cool as they took in all the activities on hand at the event. WMES students create video game Keep on Breathing WAVERLEY: Kaitlyn Langille and Isabelle McKenna might be in Grade 5, but they showed they are very tech savvy. In the recently held Scratch contest, the two Waverley Memorial Elementary Students came home second from more than 100 entries province-wide with their video game Keep On Breathing. It features three animals in a race a cat; a dog; and a penguin, and the user can chose to be one depending on their age. You have to answer math questions in order to move forward, and you re in a race to beat a dragon. When we first started on our video game I didn t think we would place at all, said McKenna, who lives in Lakeview. It was an incredible opportunity for us, and to come second was just amazing. Langille said the purpose of the game is to increase knowledge of math and to have fun doing it by racing an opponent. To win the race, you have to help your character get to the finish line by answering math questions and outsmarting your opponent to win the trophy, the medal, and a free taco. The game is for those ages years-old. It was really fun to make the game, said the Windsor Junction resident. I m really happy we placed because we put a lot of time and thought into it. It was really nice for all of our hard work to pay off. McKenna said they had to code different objects in their video game to make it real. It was the first idea that kind of popped into our heads, said Langille on why they picked a racing game to code. We sorted the things out, and once we started we both agreed it was a fun idea. Both say by finishing second it shows how far they ve come in learning about coding, and hope to continue learning more of it in the future. Kaitlyn Langille and Isabelle McKenna show off their video game they coded called Keep On Breathing as part of Brillant Labs Scratch contest, which is open to Grad 6-8 students. The game came home second place from among more than 100 entires from across N.S. (Healey photo) It was easy for me so I liked doing all the coding for the game, said McKenna. Teacher Krista Ford was impressed with how well her students placed. She contacted the Scratch contest organizers, which is run by Brilliant Labs, to see if the students could enter. The contest was open to those between Grade 6-8. There was a tonne of coding that they had to do and create, and they did it, said Ford.

9 July How the Canadian maple leaf flag came to be Canada has an extensive history with its national flags. While the widely recognized maple leaf flag is a universally recognized symbol of Canada in the 21st century, it took many years for Canada s national flag to reach that status. Nearly 400 years passed before Canada officially adopted the Canadian Flag or Maple Leaf Flag (l Unifolié). This flag consists of a red field with a white square (Canadian pale) in the center, upon which an 11-pointed red maple leaf sits. Although Canada was first explored in the 15th century, and declared a self-governing entity in 1867, the famed maple leaf didn t come into existence until Through the years, various flags were raised above Canadian soil. The first flag used was the St. George s Cross. This was flown when explorer John Cabot landed in Newfoundland. At the time, the cross was representative of England. When Canada was settled as part of France and dubbed New France, two flags gained national status. One was the Royal Banner of France. This featured a blue background with three gold fleurs-de-lis. A white flag of the French Royal Navy was also flown from ships and forts and sometimes flown at land-claiming ceremonies. Through the 18th and early 19th centuries, while under British rule, Canada went through a series of flags that bore the British ensign the Union Jack. The Red Ensign and the Royal Union Flag were flown in various locations. By 1921, a Canadian Red Ensign, featuring the Union Jack and a shield of arms granted to Canada, was authorized to fly on federal buildings in Canada and abroad until Canada adopted its own national flag. In 1925 and then again 20 years later, committees were appointed to resolve the national flag issue. People didn t want to offend Britain with the removal of the Union Jack. A flag consisting of the British Union Flag in the upper left corner with a gold maple leaf in the bottom right corner was suggested in However, legislators could not commit, and many Canadians were split on the flag debate. Many still held ties to the Union Flag. Others liked the Red Ensign. Also, Québec viewed its provincial flag, the Fleurdelisé, as its national emblem. In 1960, the flag issue again was brought to light, as Canada was threatened by a growing separatist movement in Québec. Many thought a national flag may unite the country during this time. An all-party committee was established in September of Seven Liberals, five Conservatives, one New Democrat, one Social Crediter and one Créditiste were part of the committee. According to Library and Archives Canada, some 2,000 flag suggestions were submitted in 1964 and examined by a committee. Three flags were selected during a process of elimination. A single-leaf design presented by George Stanley eventually was adopted. On January 28, 1956, the royal flag proclamation was signed by Queen Elizabeth II. The flag was officially flown at Parliament Hill for the first time on February 15, Today, the maple leaf flag is one of the most recognizable national flags in the world.

10 10 July Conservative premier Charles Tupper led the way for Nova Scotia then a prosperous colony of approximately 350,000 people to become one of the original provinces to join Confederation in He was a strong proponent of both a Maritime union and British North American union, in large part due to his belief that Nova Scotia would flourish if connected to other colonies by an inter-colonial railway. Talks for both types of union began in 1864 at the Charlottetown Conference, but whereas the idea of a Maritime union was tabled, a confederation between the colonies was considered worth pursuing. Terms for the union were soon after debated at a second conference in Quebec City. As a result, 72 guidelines were outlined in a document known as the Quebec Resolutions. Many Nova Scotians were vehemently opposed to the intended terms, especially those of financial nature. However, Charles Tupper led a majority government and was therefore able to pass the Quebec Resolutions through legislature. Royal assent for Confederation was given at the London Conference in 1866, and on July 1, 1867 the new legislation took effect One of the four original provinces, New Brunswick joined the Dominion of Canada in Protection, mobility and economic prosperity were the driving forces behind this revolutionary merge. Colonists, including Confederation trailblazer and government leader Samuel Leonard Tilley, believed a wider national union would further elevate New Brunswick s local economy by providing a larger market for goods and a link to the other colonies via the Intercolonial Railway system. At the same time, fear of invasion reigned thick in the air as the American Civil War brewed in the south. With talk of the U.S. wanting to expand northward into New Brunswick, the majority of Maritime leaders believed their best defensive tactic was to become one with the Province of Canada (formerly Upper and Lower Canada). Although this decision didn t enjoy widespread agreement across the colony many settlers feared their interests would be overshadowed in the greater Canadian context the bid for Confederation prevailed, and New Brunswick became distinctly Canadian on July 1, Construction of a railroad on Prince Edward Island left the colony with a crippling debt. Confederation was the solution to this financial disaster, as well as an answer to the so-called Land Question (a highly contentious issue involving the system of land ownership on the Island). Canada agreed to pay out the railway debt and buy land from absentee landlords,and further promised to implement and maintain a year-round communication link with the Island. On July 1, 1873, it became official: P.E.I. was the seventh province to enter the Canadian Confederation. The occasion was observed in Charlottetown with a small ceremony and celebration. However, all of this occurred less than ten years after the Charlottetown Conference, during which the Maritime colonies and the Province of Canada (Quebec and Ontario) first began to put together the ideas that led to Confederation. Unlike the other colonies involved, Prince Edward Island ultimately declined to partake in the union, feeling that the terms were disagreeable. Still, P.E.I. s original involvement in the preliminary talks led to the province touting itself as the birthplace of Confederation Oh, Newfoundland: Canada s historical paradox. Did you know that England s oldest overseas colony was actually an independent country before joining Canadian ranks in 1949? In fact, Newfoundland s decision to join Canada contradicted the province s lengthy history. Many decades before, Newfoundlanders brazenly rejected Confederation in favour of a destiny alongside Canada, rather than within it. LOOKING BACK In 1907, Newfoundland acquired Dominion status from the UK, which put the nowprovince on equal ground with Canada. The two countries self-governed side by side until Faced with unsustainable government debt following the First World War, rapidly declining fish prices and the astronomical cost of maintaining a trans-island railway, Newfoundland was forced to give up its independence in exchange for the Crown s support. At the dawn of the Second World War, however, Newfoundland began to prosper anew, and locals aspired to break from English rule once more. But political leader Joseph Joey R. Smallwood, the last Father of Confederation, strongly believed a wider union with Canada would lift the province and its people out of poverty by providing a social safety net and paving the way for industrialization. Was Newfoundland to join the Confederation or return to self-government? After two consecutive referendums, Newfoundland became the tenth province to enter the Canadian Confederation on March 31, 1949, and in December 2001, an amendment was made to the Constitution to change the province s official name to Newfoundland and Labrador Quebec and Ontario jointly made up a single province at the time of Confederation called the Province of Canada, a union that developed in 1840 in response to rising rebellions in Upper Canada (Ontario) and Lower Canada (Quebec). But things weren t going well. In particular, governing with a single parliament run by multiple parties was a challenge. Confederation was a way to resolve this issue, as it would separate the Province of Canada into two provinces Quebec and Ontario and join it with other British North American colonies to form a new, federally governed country in which local issues could be provincially managed.

11 11 July 2017 Confederation. In addition to the reorganization of government structures, he cited the Intercolonial Railway, economic stimulus and the protection of French Canadian interests as reasons to create the new union. While not everyone agreed (dissenters of Confederation were plentiful), Quebec officially joined the Dominion of Canada with Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick on July 1, Alberta s fertile, wheat-bearing lands. Furthermore, with the United States demonstrating true expansionist aims since the time of Confederation, Canada began asserting its presence in the Prairie Provinces by sending the Royal Mounted Police westward to presentday Lethbridge, where they founded Fort Macleod. However, for a government that possessed almost all the powers and responsibilities of a province in its own right, Alberta, like its sister territories, lacked the financial resources to build schools and advance public works. It became clear to politicians like Sir Frederick William Haultain an active member of the territorial legislature that provincial status was the only way to achieve strong political power similar to that enjoyed by the existing Canadian provinces. In the early 1900s, Haultain fought tirelessly to obtain provincial self-government, and although he always advocated for one single province, in the end, Canada welcomed two: Alberta and its eastern neighbour, Saskatchewan. B efore Ontario was Ontario, it was part of the colony of Quebec, which was home to both French and English settlers. Unsurprisingly, religious, linguistic and social differences soon divided the area s growing population. Both groups, eager to self-govern according to their own political views, parted ways via the Constitution Act of The Act split the Quebec colony in two: the French-speaking Catholics claimed the eastern portion, Lower Canada, and the British Loyalists and American settlers took Upper Canada, Ontario s predecessor. Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe was the first leader of the new Upper Canadian society. Things went smoothly at first, but the War of 1812 set off a chain of events fuelled by political instability and rebellions on both sides of the new border. In February 1841, less than a century after their divorce, Upper and Lower Canada reunited to form the Province of Canada out of economic necessity; but the communities retained their distinct character. When talks of Confederation began, both sides were at the table, with George-Étienne Cartier representing the French speakers and John A. Macdonald, the former residents of Upper Canada. The Province of Canada was divided into Quebec and Ontario in early Together, but as separate provinces, they joined the new Dominion of Canada on July 1 of that same year. Many Fathers of Confederation were from Ontario, including Sir Alexander Campbell, James Cockburn, George Brown and the first Canadian prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald I n the late 19th century, the European population in the part of Canada we now call Saskatchewan was rapidly growing. The Dominion Lands Act (a law which granted free land to settlers who established homesteads in the Prairies) was a large factor in their arrival. First Nations leaders in the area had signed away their land rights in the Numbered Treaties, and were attempting to make the switch from a nomadic way of life to an agricultural one. However, when the treaties were broken, rebellions ensued and the rallied First Nations in the region were forcibly quelled so that Canadian expansion might continue. At the turn of the century, the area was administered as a part of the North-West Territories, which then included all of present-day Northwest Territories, Yukon, Nunavut, Alberta and Saskatchewan, as well as large parts of Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. But with the Prairie population mushrooming, a more localized government began to make sense. In 1900, local leaders began petitioning for provincial status, and in 1905 the North-West Territories was cut up to create two new provinces: Saskatchewan and Alberta L ike most of the Prairies, Manitoba began its journey to provincehood as part of Rupert s Land, a sprawling territory that was owned by the Hudson s Bay Company for nearly two centuries before being sold to Canada in In 1867, a man named Thomas Spence had attempted to create the Republic of Manitobah; however, poor organization and a complete lack of recognition or even interest from authorities in London prompted the state s swift demise. Despite his disappointing democratic debut, Spence remained in politics and went on to serve on the council for Métis leader Louis Riel s provisional government. Riel had established the group during the Red River Rebellion in reaction to the federal government s complete disregard for Métis concerns. From the actions of Riel and his supporters including Spence emerged the Manitoba Act, a final step toward the creation of the Province of Manitoba. The act came into effect on July 15, 1870, officialising the status of Manitoba and its 15,000 residents within the Canadian Constitution O riginally established as a provisional district of the North-West Territories in 1882, Alberta joined Confederation in 1905, along with Saskatchewan. With the fur trade in rapid decline during the 1850s and 60s, British North American leaders started exploiting the land s agricultural potential. By the end of the 19th century, the Canadian West had undergone exponential change. In addition to experiencing an agricultural boom, the territories west of Ontario also saw urban development thanks to an increase in logging camps, mining centres and railway construction sites.

12 12 July Two members of the North West Company, Simon Fraser and David Thompson, established the first European settlement in present-day British Columbia during the early 1800s. The region was mainly used for the fur trade and remained largely undeveloped for the next 50 years or so, contrasting with the rapid development underway in Eastern Canada. In 1849 the British government invested in colonizing the area, and James Douglas became the first governor of the colony of Vancouver Island in Things were relatively calm during the next few years, but this quiet period came to an abrupt halt when gold was discovered along the lower Fraser River in Gold-seekers flocked to the area and eventually formed a second colony, this one on the mainland, called British Columbia. In 1871, the 12,000 non-aboriginal residents of the Vancouver Island and British Columbia colonies agreed to join Canada as a single province, on the condition that the federal government build a transcontinental railroad to link them to the economic mainstays of the east. British Columbia entered Confederation on July 20, 1871; 15 years later, the much-delayed Canadian Pacific Railway finally reached the province s southwest coast The discovery of gold near Dawson City in 1896 triggered an era of unbridled mining activity known as the Klondike Gold Rush. People from all over the continent ventured to the Canadian North in hopes of snagging a slice of the gilded pie. The region was originally part of the Northwest Territories, but this sudden influx of gold-seekers as many as 100,000, according to some estimates prompted the government to make Yukon a distinct federal territory in For context, the following events also took place in Canada in the year 1898: A nationwide vote found 278,380 Canadians in favour of prohibition and 264,690 against. Every province voted dry except Quebec. The result was deemed too close for Parliament to take any action. Canada Post released the world s first Christmas- themed stamp. T he first locomotive was put in operation on the White Pass and Yukon Railway. Emma Casgrain from Quebec became Canada s first female dentist. further expanding (they d already purchased Alaska from Russia a few years earlier). Britain supported these efforts and helped facilitate the transfer. The lands acquired more than tripled Canada s size. They encompassed all of modern-day Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, as well as most of Northern Ontario and Quebec. The land was purchased in 1869 for 300,000, and HBC kept the titles to various trading posts and 5 per cent of the territory (mostly farmland in the prairies). However, the actual takeover was postponed due to the Red River Rebellion led by Louis Riel. As a result, appropriation only commenced on July 15, Upon Canada s acquisition of the new region, the entire area minus a small squaresized lot around Winnipeg that was pronounced the province of Manitoba became known as the North-West Territories On April 1, 1999, new boundaries were drawn in Canada s North. Carved out of the central and eastern areas of the Northwest Territories, Nunavut which means our land in Inuktitut finally became a distinct Canadian territory after years of tireless negotiations. IN A NUTSHELL The creation of Nunavut was the outcome of the largest Aboriginal land claims agreement in Canadian history. A surge in oil, gas and mineral exploration in the North during the 70s forced the Inuit to organize in response to the fast-paced economic developments affecting their land. (The Inuit and First Nations peoples have a spiritual connection to the land, animals and sea, and believe resources must be used wisely as a show of respect.) A traditional hunter-gatherer society, the Inuit sought self-governance as a means to protect their cultural well-being. After years of re-negotiating treaties, the Canadian government finally enacted the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement in 1993, which gave the Inuit a slice of the North and bestowed them with various rights, including wildlife and resource management. The birth of Canada s newest, largest and northernmost territory resulted in the first major change to the country s geo-political map since the inclusion of Newfoundland in Canada purchased the expansive area owned by the Hudson s Bay Company (HBC) Rupert s Land and North-Western Territory after six months of gruelling negotiations that took place in London.

Wadden, a Lockview High graduate, participated on the school s track and field team and out of curiosity posted a video of one of her performances on BeRecruited. com. The coach for Nevada Wolf Pack saw and contacted her. Five years later, Wadden is graduating from the school as their second best career track and field athlete, and oh there s also the fact she s a second team All-American, just missing first team All-American status by five points. The top 16 in the U.S. make the NCAA s All-American; with the top eight on the first team. Wadden was ninth. It s very exciting. It s a great honour, she told The Laker in a June 16 interview. It s the second best honour you can get, but it s frustrating. I was definitely aiming to be first team All-American but I tried my best. Wadden scored 5,575 points over the two day competition, falling five points shy of eighth and a first team place. She joined Nevada teammate Emily Myers as the universities first track athletes to become All-Americans since the 2012 season and the first outdoor All-Americans since Wadden also finishes her career in second on the Nevada all-time list in the multi-event. During her Wolf Pack career, Wadden became the second-most decorated female multi-sport track and field athlete in the school s history behind only Ali McKnight, a two-time Olympic trials qualifier who finished second in the heptathlon at the 1995 NCAA Championships. Looking back at how her journey got started, Wadden said she s happy to have ended her career on a positive note. It s kind of creepy to look back and think about how it all started, where I am now, where I came from living in a different country, she said. It s still kind of creepy, but it took a lot of hard work. It was a fun time, it was a really great experience and I learned a lot through the process. I m really glad it all worked out and it ended on such a high note. When asked if she ever envisioned having this much accomplishment in post-secondary athletics. In high school I was pretty good at track, but I never really thought I would become this good, said Wadden. I think most people from a young age especially in the U.S., with how the sport system is setup they dream of becoming an All-American but I didn t even know it was a thing. Wadden said she chuckled and put her head down for a bit after finding out how close she came to being a first team All-American. Her family were in attendance at the NCAA championships. Five points is not a lot, she said. She believes being a second team All-American means more to someone like herself. I think it means more knowing I didn t grow up doing track everyday like a lot of the track athletes in America have, said Wadden. I definitely had a different kind of upbringing with sports at home than in America. What s next for Wadden? She isn t sure and it may not include a return to home cooking in Fall River anytime soon. I am still trying to figure that out. I m not 100 per cent sure if I m going to do track anymore, she said. My body is pretty beat up from doing it everyday for five years. I really like it here (Nevada). It s definitely nice to wake up to sunshine every day.

14 14 July 2017 Francis, Boyd excited about being drafted Fall River, Beaver Bank players taken by Islanders, Screaming Eagles. Nolan Boyd and Ryan Francis are ready to leave good first impressions with their respective QMJHL teams, the Charlottetown Islanders and Cape Breton Screaming Eagles, after being drafted on June 3. (Healey photo) FALL RIVER: Being drafted into the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is just the first step for two Fall River and Beaver Bank hockey players in their quest to continue playing the sport they love. Nolan Boyd of Fall River, a goalie with the Steele Subarus, and Beaver Bank offensive spark-plug Ryan Francis, who lit the lamp quite a bit in his rookie season with Cole Harbour, both heard their names called during the QMJHL s annual draft, held June 3 at Harbour Station in Saint John, N.B. Francis went in the second round to the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles earlier than the fourth round ranking QMJHL Central Scouting had him listed at while Boyd was picked in the sixth round by the Charlottetown Islanders. It was a pretty exciting and crazy experience, especially being picked that early, said Francis. I was a bit surprised, it was pretty amazing going to Cape Breton, a great organization. It s like your dream growing up. He said he has a lot of off-ice work to be done so he can build up strength to hold off the other players. When he heard his name called he said he popped out of his seat right away. Boyd said he s really excited about getting to stay close to home. It s a great opportunity for me to go out and show them what I have and hopefully crack their roster, said Boyd, who is focused on the task ahead. It means a lot because you look at guys like Daniel Sprong and Matt Welsh, who have been with their organization and it s really just an honour to be selected by the Islanders. He knows he has a lot of work to put in over the summer, but is willing to do that so he can say he is a QMJHL player. I have to be faster and quicker, he said. Being Fall River and Beaver Bank products, both Boyd and Francis grew up cheering on the hometown Halifax Mooseheads. Now they both will be hopefully, one day at least skating onto the ice at Scotiabank Centre with the opposition. It s pretty cool, he said. Just to be able to come home and be able to play one day in Halifax would be a really special feeling. Francis is eager to take part in the Battle of Nova Scotia between the Eagles and Mooseheads. Hopefully one day I ll be able to play in that New Year s Eve game on day, he said. Boyd has been on the ice a couple of times before being drafted with Welsh, another Halifax boy. He models his game after him. Obviously, Matty isn t the biggest goalie so to watch him and how he plays will help my game, seeing how he challenges the shooter and plays the game, said Boyd. At the draft, Boyd had to do a double take when his name was called by the Islanders. It was just such a surreal feeling. I ll never forget it. The draft is just the first step. At the end of the day the draft doesn t mean nothing, it just matters when you get to camp, said Boyd. You have to make the best of your opportunity and leave a good first impression. Phinney, MacKinnon selected in MHL draft The Secret to Happiness If you follow our clinic s Facebook or twitter page you will have recently seen an article titled New neuroscience reveals 4 rituals that will make you happy. If we dive deeper into this article it outlines 4 key habits. 1) When feeling down, first ask yourself Why? Second ask yourself What am I grateful for? Name and focus on something which you can be grateful for, whether it is a person, part of nature, a favourite food, a pet, etc. Feeling gratitude can have profound neurological effects activating the brain stem region that produces dopamine, as well as boosting serotonin. Remember even the act of searching for something to express gratitude towards can have these neurological benefits. 2) When feeling down, label or name that feeling. Are you sad, anxious, or angry? Acknowledging that feeling by saying it out loud (in a word or two) will consciously reduce that negative emotion s impact on your health. 3) Make that decision which has been weighing on you. Neuroscience research shows that finally making a decision will reduce anxiety. Simply make a good enough for now decision; please don t sweat over having to be 100% perfect. You can always adapt in the future. 4) Human touch. Shake a hand, hug a friend, etc. Again neuroscience research shows that the brain needs this feeling of love and acceptance from others. This simple act which we often overlook has actually been shown to reduce pain! DR. DAVID COLLINGS, ND So how do you learn to really master these happiness habits?

Evan MacKinnon, who is playing with the Sherbrooke Phoenix in the QMJHL, was selected by the Truro Bearcats in the fifth round of the 10 round draft. Now, if MacKinnon was sent down or released by the Phoenix he would go play with the Bearcats. In 54 games in his rookie season, split between the Rouyn Noranda Huskies who selected him in the 2016 QMJHL draft and the Phoenix, the Beaver Bank forward had five goals and three assists and four penalty minutes. He was -11 with the Phoenix. Meanwhile, Newbridge Senators Under- 18 team goalie Thomson Phinney, who calls Fall River home, heard his name called during the fourth round when the Yarmouth Mariners used the 45th overall selection to take the goalie. In the PSHF league play, he suited up for nine games and had a 2.11 Goals Against Average, while in four ECEL games he had a 3.86 GAA.

15 Unified Sports filled with fun, sportsmanship First-ever event in HRSB took place at Lockview High on June 9 July FALL RIVER: Students from four schools gathered at Lockview High School for an student-led initiative that was the first of it s kind in the Halifax Regional School Board. Unified Sport brought together students with and without intellectual disabilities for a day of fun it didn t matter what the final score on the scoreboard read, the winners were all those involved. Participating were students from Lockview High; Millwood High in Sackville; Halifax West; and Dartmouth High. There was even a medal ceremony after the final game was held in the afternoon. Unified Sports was held last year in the Valley and a Lockview student heard about it, and thought to bring it to the HRM. With the support of the school officials including the administration the event came together quickly. There were many student volunteers assisting to make the event run smoothly, making it a success. Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability, which makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away. From the looks and excitement of their faces from the game winning shot by a Lockview player for a win over Millwood to the faces as players scored baskets in the Halifax West-Dartmouth game, there was lots of fun had, and Unified Sports will continue to grow and get bigger with more teams and maybe even school boards becoming involved. Meals for everyone Meals Ministry provides supper once a month at Knox United Church in Lower Sackville LOWER SACKVILLE: A group of volunteers from several churches in the Lower Sackville area come together once a month to provide a hearty meal for those who want it. Caroline Gallop of Beaver Bank is one of the main organizers who puts on Meals Ministry the third Thursday of every month. It began in January, and is held at Knox United Church on Sackville Drive in Lower Sackville, running from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. We started the program because we knew there were people in Sackville that were having difficulty with food security issues, said Gallop in explaining the initiative s start-up. We felt we had to do something to help. She said they contacted a number of other churches in the community, and they also felt there was a need for a program. Everybody is welcomed to the meals, she said. We re keeping the meals simple, doing soups and sandwiches and desserts. As it grows, we ll revisit and see if we want to change it up a bit. The response to the program has grown steadily since starting. The first one had 15 people. In May, there was 85 people. It s growing very quickly, said Gallop. Gallop says it s hard to make assumptions, but it tells her there are people in the Roger McDonell serves up some soup as Molly Embanks waits with a sandwich to place it on the plate as well at the Meals Ministry at Knox United Church on June 15. (Healey photo) Unify Sport was a student-led initiative at Lockview High. (Healey photo) community that are lonely, and find the Meals Ministry is a good place to come and connect with other people. Some of the other families, it s kind of a sensitive topic, but it s my suspicion that money starts running out around the third week of the month, and it s nice to go out and be served a meal, she said. She was asked about how it makes her and the other volunteers feel providing the meals program. I think we all feel good about what we re doing, she said. We want Sackville to be a strong, vibrant community and we don t want people going hungry. We don t want people feeling as if their life is at full capacity, sow e want to help them out. On this day, councillor Lisa Blackburn visited to provide Meals Ministry with a cheque from herself, as did the Sackville Kinsmen Club who provided a $2,000 donation to the program. From the looks of things, those donations will be put to good use by the organizers of the Meals Ministry program. 311 Contact Centre Change in Operating Hours Effective July 3, 2017 HRM s 311 Contact Centre s new regular operating hours: Monday to Friday - 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday - 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. After-hours, urgent service will continue to be provided halifax.ca/311

Born September 12, 1936, in Sydney NS, he was the son of the late Kenneth Daniel Morrison and Christine Morrison, and is survived by his wife, Carol; son, Peter and daughter, Marie; grandchildren, April and Samuel; brother, Gordon and sisters, Agnes and Norma. He grew up on Whitney Pier, helped out his grandmother in Grand River on summer holidays, and spent time fishing with his Uncle Murdo. He obtained a scholarship to attend NSCAD, which he did for a year with the intention of becoming a cartoonist. In his 20 s he joined the air force and trained as a radar technician, and used this training to obtain a job on the DEW line in the Canadian Arctic. For entertainment they followed the stock market, and after four years on the DEW line he walked into the Bongard Nesbitt office in Montreal asking if he could work for them, offering to pay them for the experience. They were so impressed that they said they would pay him! He was then transferred to the Halifax office, where he learned the ropes as a gopher before obtaining his license to become a stockbroker. He gained a reputation for conscientiousness and strong ethics, putting his clients interests ahead of his own. There were family trips to visit Carol s family in England, to PEI and for skiing in Quebec and Maine. He always had an interest in Le Carré spy stories and the world wars, which resulted in an interest in the Soviet Union, and he and Carol went to Hungary, Russia, the Czech Republic and Poland. Ken and Carol bought lakefront property in Oakfield, where they built the family home and raised three children. He spent many hours building paths through the woods and clearing fallen branches, creating a beautiful lakefront where the family could swim. He was known for his generosity in employing local youth to help him. He lived on the property for 42 years and enjoyed a quiet retirement there close to nature. Ken was an avowed atheist, but supported daughter Marie s decision to attend St. Margaret s Anglican Church in Oakfield, where a graveside funeral was held on June 14. His ashes were laid next to those of his daughter Fleure Kathleen, who died unexpectedly a year ago. After the funeral close friends and family were invited to drop into the family home, where we shared stories about Ken.

Some groups already invited include the Waverley Heritage Society and the Waverley Legion. One of the main objectives for the concert series is to provide an opportunity for community groups to fundraise, said O Halloran. He said another objective for the concerts is to bring families and the communities in the lakes area together. Fall River man opens Pillar to Post franchise S A Natural Solution to Your Coastal Erosion Issues ADVERTORIAL ummer is here! A season for cottages, patios, and family time spent on the beautiful beaches of the North Shore. Summer can also be a season when we visit our cottage shorelines or favourite beaches only to discover that the winter storms have taken their toll. Debris, damage, and erosion are the most common signs of winter s wrath. Worrying about all that erosion and the threat of what might happen next year can really put a damper on the joys of summer. You don t have to look far to see the standard approach that is currently used to reduce coastal erosion. Hard engineered structures seem to be popping up everywhere these days. From bulkheads of wood and steel, to tall walls of giant stacked granite boulders, to low sloping sandstone protection structures, the diversity is endless. Without a doubt there are locations where these armouring structures are necessary and often critical to protect roads, fishing wharves, and industrial or historical buildings. This kind of coastal armouring tends to produce a sense of permanence and security, however they are not as permanent than they look and they often do not fit with the coastal countryside scenery we cherish. Hard armouring can create a cascade of accelerating erosion in front of and around coastal structures leading to a loss of beaches and neighbouring properties soon requiring protection. They have ecological impacts such as loss of habitat, reduced water quality, and localized changes in the species living in an area. Hard structures also tend to make it more difficult to access the coast for the leisure and resources that we all enjoy. As a coastal property owner you may be asking is there anything I can do to maintain the health and natural beauty of my shoreline? Are there any other options to reduce my coastal erosion besides rock and hard structures? The short answer is yes! The long answer is that there is a whole spectrum of nature-based solutions to coastal erosion that are broadly referred to as Living Shorelines. Living Shorelines mimic and accelerate the natural processes of coastal stabilization by using native plant species and local plant materials (hay, brush, logs etc.) to re-establish vegetation cover on coastal banks, bluffs, and cliffs. Living Shorelines are an important tool for coastal management because they allow us to protect our properties and investments while at the same time maintaining the natural beauty and ecosystem functions of the shoreline. Living Shorelines are resilient to coastal change and can be used increase the resilience and longevity of existing rock protection structures. Living Shoreline projects also inspire participation and knowledge sharing that creates resilient, empowered individuals and communities. Helping Nature Heal has been designing, installing, and maintaining Living Shorelines specially adapted to the Atlantic Canadian environment for 15 years. We take pride in helping our clients find sustainable solutions to their coastal issues. We also offer mentorship services to teach property owners the skills they need to monitor coastal change on their property and become stewards of the coastline. If you are worried about coastal erosion on your property and a natural solution feels right to you, our expert team would love to work with you to design the Living Shoreline best suited to your needs. FALL RIVER: Scott Robertson knew he wanted to own his own business after leaving the military. That s where Pillar to Post Home Inspectors came in. Robertson is a franchisee of the company, founded in 1994, and serves the HRM, with his franchise focusing mainly on serving those in and around the Waverley, Fall Rover, Bedford, Clayton Park, Hammonds Plains, and Sackville areas. I wanted to have a second career after my time in the military, said Robertson in an interview at Good Day Cafe overlooking Fall River Road. This is another way of me getting out in the community to support local community members in purchasing a house. If I can help educate the client, and provide a reasonable comfort level with that, then it brings me a lot of self-gratification. He saw a need for professional home inspection service that could partner with local realtors, to make their services even better. What I felt was that there was a need for a professional service, he said. When Robertson left the military after a 25-year career, he went back to school and took a lot of education with home inspection and specialty courses. I then bought the franchise Pillar to Post so I could offer a professional product to clients, he said. There are other franchises of the company in HRM, and he is one of them. Robertson said he is in the last phase of the start-up phase for Pillar to Post. He says it s all about marketing, networking with real estate agents, getting himself out there and recognized for what he does. It also involves developing relationships so I can have clientele down the road and make good, strong foundations with future clients, he said. FRABA is one that I intend to join this summer; it s a good networking organization. Pillar to Post provides three exclusive Home Inspection Packages that allows the client to select the range of services they prefer, so they can have peace of mind about buying the home they love. The report is printed and delivered at the time of the inspection, so there s no waiting for results. There will also be online access available to their report anytime. When Robertson does a home inspection his main focus is on things relating to safety. Anything that is a safety concern I will point that out immediately, he said. The other thing that I will look at is the house functioning as a system. If things function as a system they should work in relation to the age of the home. If you start finding things, and having to replace things like a furnace, typical items that would have high monetary value, we ll point out to the client as well. To get in touch with Robertson, you can find more information at com/scottrobertson, call him at , or look for him in his nicely wrapped Toyota Tundra truck emblazoned with the company logo

20 20 July 2017 Stormwater Service Past, Present and Future... Halifax Water Adworks; 61p6; al; Black plus three; THE PAST Stormwater fees, distinct from taxation, have existed since A wastewater/stormwater management charge was initially levied by the municipality in 1997 and collected on the water bill by Halifax Water for the municipality. At that time, only customers with piped wastewater service received a bill. Residents serviced by ditches and culverts did not pay, but were still provided the service by the municipality through funds collected from customers with piped wastewater service. In other words, customers with piped service were subsidizing customers served by ditches and culverts. THE PRESENT In 2007 Halifax Water assumed responsibility for wastewater and stormwater service delivery and reviewed these charges based on user pay principles, as regulated by the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (NSUARB). In July 2013 the NSUARB approved the current rate structure which corrected the inequity noted above. THE FUTURE On April 12, 2017 the NSUARB approved a number of stormwater rate changes, including those listed below. The changes will take effect on July 1, Highlights of the changes to how Halifax Water charges for stormwater service include: Tiering of Residential Properties. Properties with more impervious area (concrete/asphalt, driveway, roofs, etc.) will pay more than those with less impervious area. With these approved changes, the majority of residential customers (88%) will see a decrease in their Site Related Flow [SRF] Charge from Halifax Water, as noted in the table below. Tier Parameters Number of (Impervious Area Old New Annual Customers in square metres) Rate Charge Affected Tier 1 Less than 50m 2 $33.39 $0.00 2,326 Tier 2 50 to 200m 2 $33.39 $ ,710 Tier to 400m 2 $33.39 $ ,041 Tier to 800m 2 $33.39 $ ,768 Tier 5 Greater than 810m 2 $33.39 $ ,123 More properties are exempt from the SRF charge those with less than 50 square meters of impervious area. Customers to be billed in increments of 10 m 2 rather than billing based on 1 m 2 of impervious area. In an effort to better explain stormwater service, Halifax Water has significantly improved its website, with graphics, videos and a searchable Stormwater Service Boundary map. The enhanced website provides information that is much easier to understand and navigate. Take a few minutes to visit and check the front page links for full stormwater service information.
