Cops and kids form friendship through fishing https://www.google.com/https:/48e/news/local-news/cops-and-kids-form-friendship-through-fishing https:/48e/news/local-news/cops-and-kids-form-friendship-through-fishing#respond Mon, 21 Jan 2019 15:15:53 +0000 https:/48e/news/local-news/cops-and-kids-form-friendship-through-fishing Extreme cold and a nasty wind chill didn’t deter the more than 100 kids that showed up at the Herchimer Avenue boat launch early Saturday morning to participate in the third annual Cops, Kids and Ice Fishing Derby.
The event was free for all kids, with drilled holes and bait provided as well as hot chocolate, coffee, chili and Timbits, said organizer Const. Pat Comeau:
“We’re pretty happy with it, we have between 100 and 150 kids out which is really good when it’s this cold out,” said Comeau. “We’re not doing prizes for this one because we don’t want the kids to stay out too long because it’s so cold out, so we give kids a police toque on the way out and provide them with chili and hot chocolate and stuff to keep them warm.”

TIM MEEKS/THE INTELLIGENCERBelleville Police Service and Community Policing personnel and volunteers were on hand to provide rods, reels and bait at the 3rd Annual Cops, Kids and Ice Fishing Derby held Saturday on the Bay of Quinte.

The event was supported by the Belleville Police Association and Tim Hortons, which paid a portion of the cost of coffee and hot chocolate and Timbits for the kids.
Last year’s ice fishing derby attracted about 300 kids, but the extreme cold kept the numbers down this year.
“We’re really impressed how many people are actually out here today with the cold, but the ice conditions are good, we have just a little bit under a foot, so there’s tons and tons of ice so we can guarantee it’s safe where we are,” he said.
Comeau also runs the Cops & Kids Fishing Derby in the spring, which is set for June 8 this year at Victoria Park, and usually draws upwards of 400 kids, making it the largest event of its kind on Ontario.
“This year will be my thirteenth year doing the summer one,” Comeau said. “We call it friendship through fishing. I love fishing and I love working with kids, so I just combined them. It’s a great way to break down the barriers with the interaction between the police and the little ones out there in the community.”

Charges in robbery; witnesses sought; winter weather collisions https://www.google.com/https:/48e/news/local-news/charges-in-robbery-witnesses-sought-winter-weather-collisions https:/48e/news/local-news/charges-in-robbery-witnesses-sought-winter-weather-collisions#respond Mon, 21 Jan 2019 14:46:44 +0000 https:/48e/news/local-news/charges-in-robbery-witnesses-sought-winter-weather-collisions Witnesses sought in robbery
Police are looking to identify and speak with the men who aided an elderly woman who was the victim of a robbery/assault on Newberry Street Friday afternoon.
It’s believed they were leaving from a local restaurant and driving a black pickup truck. The two men helped the victim to a local pharmacy and left her in care of the staff at the business prior to leaving.
If you are these individuals or know who they, please contact Constable Adam Donaldson at 613 966 0882 x 4147, or email adonaldson@police.belleville.on.ca

Winter weather brings collisions
Winter weather lead to six collisions being reported throughout the city Sunday.
There were no injuries reported.
At 10:15 p.m., police took a report of a fail to remain collision on Herchimer Avenue. Police were advised a man had collided with a female driver. After the man helped the woman get her vehicle out of the snow, he quickly left the scene before police arrived.
Police located the vehicle a short time later, and the driver was charged with failing to provide the required information.

Robbery/multiple assaults
A Toronto man has been charged with a number of offences following incidents Friday afternoon.
Just before 2 p.m. officers attended on Newberry Street in relation to a robbery. A woman had been punched in the head by a man who attempted to wrestle her purse away. As the woman retained her purse the male threw her onto the ground. The man fled on foot and the woman was taken to hospital by paramedics with injuries her to her shoulder and head.
Officers followed the footprints and arrested a 31-year-old Toronto man.
An hour earlier officers had attended in the same area as a man had thrown a rock at a passing recycling truck. The rock shattered the passenger side window on the truck. The passenger in the truck was not injured.
This man had been charged by police for an incident last week at the Belleville Transit Terminal on Pinnacle Street. During a dispute over bus fare a male punched one of the employees in the face. The employee suffered a cut when his glasses broke. The man was located at the Via Train Station one hour later. As the officers attempted to arrest him he pulled away and ran. The male was tasered at this point and taken into custody.
Eric John Kruchka has been charged with robbery and aggravated assault for the incident with the woman; mischief under $5,000 for the damaged window on the recycling truck; and assault and resist arrest for the bus terminal assault

Intoxicated persons
A 59-year-old man suffered frostbite after passing out in a snowbank, city police report.
It was just before midnight Saturday when officers were called to Victoria Avenue for a report of an intoxicated man lying in the snow. Paramedics were summoned as the man had suffered frostbite and he was taken to hospital for treatment.
Less than an hour later officers were called to Wallbridge-Loyalist Road where two “highly intoxicated individuals” were arrested for their own protection under the Liquor Licence Act.
The 25-year-old man and 39-year-old woman were both charged with being intoxicated in a common area.

Pedestrian struck by car
A pedestrian suffered minor injuries Friday morning after being struck by a vehicle.
City police report officers were called to North Front and Donald streets just after 7 a.m. for the incident.
Paramedics attended and transported the man to Belleville General Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
Investigation, which is continuing, revealed the pedestrian had failed to cross the street at a crosswalk.

Break and enter arrest
A 41-year-old man has been charged following a break and enter at an address on Hanna Court.
Belleville police report officers responded to an alarm just after 11:30 p.m. Friday to the business and found a door had been forced open. Located near the point of entry was a pry bar and a hatchet.
A man was seen inside the business with a flashlight. He was arrested without incident, police report.
Paul Laroche-Davidson, of Belleville, has been charged with break and enter with intent and possession of break-in tools.
He is scheduled to appear in court next month.

Animal bite
A city man required medical attention after he was bitten by an animal early Saturday.
It was just after midnight, police report, when officers were called to Dundas Street West between Sidney and Wilkie streets for a report of a man who had been bit by an animal. The 50-year-old required medical attention to treat a large gash on his leg and was transported to Belleville General Hospital by paramedics.
The man, who had been drinking at the time, simply described the animal as a “large dog,” police report.
Any information on this animal can be forwarded to A/Sgt. Dave Johnson at djohnson@police.belleville.on.ca

FUNNY SIDE UP: Like two ships passing out at night https://www.google.com/https:/48e/opinion/columnists/funny-side-up-like-two-ships-passing-out-at-night https:/48e/opinion/columnists/funny-side-up-like-two-ships-passing-out-at-night#respond Sat, 19 Jan 2019 11:46:45 +0000 https:/48e/opinion/columnists/funny-side-up-like-two-ships-passing-out-at-night Scientists who stay up nights will tell you that the amount of sleep that each person needs depends on many factors including age, for instance. (In my parenting experience) babies sleep about 18 hours a day in two-minute intervals. Teenagers are never awake even when they appear to be physically moving about. Parents need about 25 hours of sleep per day when dealing with either of the two aforementioned (in my parenting experience.)
All adults bring their own distinct idiosyncrasies to the table – uh – bed. That is why when I got married I made sure that the first stick of furniture I bought was a king-sized bed.
I felt that it was important to have a slumber field vast enough to dampen all forms of hither and thither thrashing that may annoy my significant other. To wit, above our scrolled brass head board, is a framed motto that reads: “Warning! Your spouse’s slightest movement appears much greater than it is!”
We all have our kinks when it comes to sleep: For my wife, the question of having sufficient sprawling space is academic because even if she had a football field to sleep on, her leg would always be offside. Her other sleepy-bye eccentricity is that she rests her head only on a poor little green pillow which she has used since childhood. Like Goldilocks, she finds her pillow “just right.” We never fail to take it along on all overnight trips.
At bedtime, my wife switches on showroom lighting and checks to see that she has her meat mallet under the bed in case she has to tenderize a prowler or a sleepwalking husband. To secure sweet slumber she needs the room temperature to be exact within a fraction; so she turns the thermostat up or down in proportion to me invariably contracting pneumonia or sweating to death. What she really needs is a Celsius-controlled space suit.
I slack out with less red tape. All I ask of Mr. Sandman is that the room be between 0 and 100 C. Also, I require 12 pillows to surround me like a fort, three more to cover my head and one to cradle in my arms because I’m too old for a teddy bear. Psychiatrists could devote a chapter to what that is all about.
Before hitting the sheets it is my job to verify that the room is safe from pirates and the creature from the Black Lagoon; I look under the bed, behind the curtains, inside the closet and in the ceiling light shade. (Everything short of climbing on the roof.) Then it’s read-in-bed time.
My wife can read War and Peace before her first yawn. I have been reading the same paragraph from a Bathroom Reader for the last 21 years; I can’t remember what it’s about.
Before sleep, she meditates, conjuring Utopian vistas and far-off universes. I lie awake wondering whether it’s worth spending $28.99 on a barrel of relish at Costco or will I consume only half of it in my lifetime. And then I dream about it.
She says I snore, but she’s deluded; I say we live too close to an invisible saw mill.
But neither of us talks in our sleep… to each other. Eyes shut, she beckons a silver-maned unicorn basking by a shining clear blue lake. I yell for a taxi and spring my arm up, one of the rare times that she will have to invade my side of the springs to parry and thrust a sharpened finger into my ribcage.
Eventually, we are adrift once more on an ocean of foam. Two ships passing out in the night.

ANNE ELSPETH RECTOR: Sharing classic kernels of tales good for families https://www.google.com/https:/48e/news/local-news/anne-elspeth-rector-sharing-classic-kernels-of-tales-good-for-families https:/48e/news/local-news/anne-elspeth-rector-sharing-classic-kernels-of-tales-good-for-families#respond Sat, 19 Jan 2019 11:36:58 +0000 https:/48e/news/local-news/anne-elspeth-rector-sharing-classic-kernels-of-tales-good-for-families Whenever kin gather and chat, old stories resurface and sometimes, surprising new details. Given my husband’s parents’ relationship with artist Manly McDonald during the family’s Shannonville years, I perk up promptly on hearing new clues about his works. This day, Kelly spoke of a painting other than that Manly painted of his parents’ general store, one whose whereabouts we’ve never discovered (although family lore suggests it hangs in a bank’s headquarters in Toronto).
Many McDonald paintings hang locally, primarily at Parrott Art Gallery in Belleville’s library, with plenty more enriching private collections, as local auctions routinely attest. This particular painting isn’t of landmark buildings or horses for which the artist is best known, but of boats moored at a marina, harbours being another subject Manly liked to paint. So, when my husband spotted it at Loyalist College, he shared his memories.
The image is of “a boat, sitting in a cradle by the shed at Dawson’s Marina in Deseronto” a boat he believes is “the Happy Adventure” the actual “boat that wouldn’t float” as Farley Mowat would later write. Asked how he knew it was Mowat’s infamous inspiration Kelly explained he remembered “seeing it at the marina when my father,” Raymond Leslie Reid, “had his own boat at Dawson’s,” adding “Don Dawson was a man who could fix anything!” Don and Ray had discussed Mowat’s boating predicament as young Kelly listened to how Mowat wanted to sell it. And he smiled broadly on recognizing it decades later, helping to illuminate more of Quinte’s artistic heritage.
It’s not the only old story arising lately. Last summer, as an Intelligencer reader spliced his spleen at my spicier writing, I was tempted to share a little-known pepper-related historical fact, going so far as to dig out family history binders, including 1976 research by “Loral & Mildred Wanamaker” on the Wallbridges of Massassauga Point, Ameliasburgh, Prince Edward County. For on page 9 I’d remembered Elijah Wallbridge obtaining a lease from D.W. Smith; “for and during the full time and term of Nine hundred and ninety nine years from hence-forth next ensuing and fully to be completed and ended yielding and paying therefor yearly during the said term the rent of ONE Pepper corn only on the Twenty sixth day of March if it shall be lawfully demanded.” Imagine, a single kernel to retain the family’s traditional lands.
And then I forgot about it… until cousins reminisced at our dinner table one night. As traditional tales were traded someone mentioned pepper, the Wallbridges, and Uncle Jim, brother to my husband’s grandmother; Bertha Edith Broad, who married Merkley Clark of Newcastle. Uncle Jim, and his brother Asa, inherited Wallbridge lands through their mother, Hannah Catherine Wallbridge, wife of James Broad. And the Clark siblings and Wallbridge descendants never forgot Elijah Wallbridge’s 1804 lease, each guest chuckling at how Uncle Jim had, every day of his life, ploughed and tended his Massassauga fields with a single peppercorn in his pocket, well into the twentieth century. When asked why, he replied; “just in case.”
Cousins farming these lands today still stock this vital spice, proving we mustn’t ever underestimate the value of a single peppercorn when it comes to local lore. But when kernels of good tales resurface, share them by having your family historian write them down.
Although Farley Mowat and I never met we spoke by phone several years ago. After tending to the purpose of our chat I took time to say how much Mowat’s writing had meant to my husband over the years. Mowat remarked how my words were both kind and considerate “But,” he groused; “you’re interrupting my lunch!” I’ve always wondered if he included pepper.

Tuition reduction needed in province: Smith https://www.google.com/https:/48e/news/local-news/tuition-reduction-needed-in-province-smith https:/48e/news/local-news/tuition-reduction-needed-in-province-smith#respond Fri, 18 Jan 2019 21:44:32 +0000 https:/48e/news/local-news/tuition-reduction-needed-in-province-smith The Ontario government has announced it is reducing tuition fees at postsecondary institutions across the province and giving students more choice over school fees.
Students at all Ontario public colleges and universities will see their tuition rates go down by 10 per cent after the tuition rate reduction was introduced by the Conservative government this week.
Bay of Quinte MPP Todd Smith said the announcement will help make postsecondary education more affordable in Ontario.
“Since 2006, university tuition skyrocketed from $5,000 to nearly $9,000 per year,” said Smith. “That makes it the most expensive tuition in Canada,” he added. “Starting in September we’ll be putting more money back into the pockets of students and families.”
According to the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities website, students in Ontario currently pay the highest tuition rates in Canada. The average Ontario university tuition is close to $9,000 while the average 2018-19 college tuition is $3,400. More than 20 different Ontario degree programs charge students more than $15,000 per year.
As part of its overall reform of postsecondary education affordability, the province also announced it will be refocussing the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) to ensure it remains sustainable and viable for future students while directing a greater portion of OSAP funding to families with the greatest financial need.
The Ontario government is also restoring financial sustainability to the ballooning costs associated with Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). According to the Auditor General the OSAP budget was projected to double over the next five years to $2.7 billion.
“Just prior to the last election, the Liberals increased the number of OSAP grants to an unsustainable level to offset out of control tuition increases,” said Smith. “The changes we are making will ensure OSAP is available to students in need for generations.”
Loyalist College president and CEO Dr. Ann Marie Vaughan said officials at the Wallbridge Road facility watched the announcement with great interest.
“We are very pleased they confirmed our core operating grants will be maintained and that is crucial,” she said. “We understand the province is in a very tight fiscal position and wants to see more innovation from schools. We’ve been hard at work with that and have some options we want to discuss with the ministry.”
Vaughan said it was much too early to determine if the tuition cuts will impact programming for the approximately 3,300 students at Loyalist.
Not everyone agreed the reductions would be beneficial.
Bay of Quinte Liberal Association spokesman Robert Quaiff said he is confident the reduction will result in programming cuts.
“(This) announcement shows Doug Ford does not value the importance of making education accessible (and) the government is stepping away from building a highly skilled and educated population and instead leaving future Ontario students with diminished opportunities for higher learning and skills training,” Quiaff said. “Ontario’s postsecondary education system is one of the reasons we’ve led the G7 in growth and jobs. By cutting 10 per cent in tuition fees without consultation or thoughtful consideration, this government is reversing progress. Colleges and universities will be forced to cut their programming and access to important student enrichment programs.”
While fees for essential campus health and safety initiatives will continue to be mandatory, students will have the opportunity to opt out of fees for other programs they don’t utilize.
Quaiff said the cuts will make it more difficult for some to receive postsecondary educations.
“Postsecondary education in Ontario is further collateral damage in this government’s agenda to cut,” he explained. “Last year 13,000 single moms were able to attend college or university because of our initiatives to make education more affordable and accessible, there was a 36 per cent increase in Indigenous students, 33 per cent increase in mature student and 24 per cent increase in middle income, weakening our institutions and restricting access are bad economic decisions.”

LHINs¡¯ fate not finalized: govt https://www.google.com/https:/48e/news/local-news/lhins-fate-not-finalized-govt https:/48e/news/local-news/lhins-fate-not-finalized-govt#respond Fri, 18 Jan 2019 21:11:49 +0000 https:/48e/news/local-news/lhins-fate-not-finalized-govt The future of Ontario’s Local Health Integration Networks remained unclear Friday, with government officials saying the agencies are part of a larger health care review.
News reports Thursday quoted government sources as saying the networks, along with Cancer Care Ontario and other agencies, could be dismantled in a sweeping overhaul by the new Progressive Conservative government.
Though the health minister and deputy premier, Christine Elliott, was in Belleville Friday to hear local agencies’ views on mental health care, it was a closed-door session and a request for an interview was denied.
The government “was elected to put the patient at the centre of a sustainable health care system built for the future,” Elliott’s press secretary, Hayley Chazan, wrote via e-mail.
“That’s why we’re working with partners in health care to develop our long-term transformational health care strategy. We will continue to listen to patients, families and front-line providers, and we will create a health care system that works for the people of Ontario,” Chazan wrote.
Bay of Quinte MPP Todd Smith said it was premature to predict the government’s direction but a review was underway.
Neither he nor Chazan would comment directly on the possibility of scrapping LHINs.
“We’re reviewing everything, and that would include the LHINs and their performance,” said Smith, the government house leader and minister of economic development, job creation and trade.
“Ultimately there has to be an administrative level of health care but we think it can be done much more streamlined and efficiently than is currently the case and deliver a better service to patients,” he said.
“It’s still too early for anybody to be reacting because decisions haven’t been finalized yet.
“There’s a number of different steps that still have to be made or taken,” he said.
The Belleville-based South East LHIN had about 45 staff prior to 2017, when the previous Liberal government dismantled the Community Care Access Centres, dismissed some of their senior staff, and gave LHINs’ responsibility of what was renamed Home and Community Care.
The South East LHIN now has about 480 staff and a coverage area of about 503,000 people from Trenton to Cardinal (east of Brockville) and Bancroft to Smiths Falls and Prince Edward County.
Smith described the LHIN as consuming money better spent on care.
“All of the bloated bureaucracy in the middle is doing nothing to help patients on the front line,” he said.
“It seems like it’s been tough to navigate the health care system as well,” Smith said.
“We want to put together a health care system that puts the patient at the centre and makes the delivery of care… as seamless as it possibly can be.”
At the LHIN itself, chief executive officer Paul Huras said he knew only what had been reported by media.
“I do not have any formal communication” from the government, he said.
“Nobody’s told me to do anything different at this point.
“My staff are shocked and concerned but they have a positive outlook,” Huras said.
“But I can also tell you that as the LHIN we’re very proud of the work we’ve done. We recognize governments have to make tough decisions and we will be supportive and helpful in the transition.
“We’ve made some significant changes that have improved health care. There’s more to be done,” said Huras.
He said staff had overseen delivery of “a range of services,” including the arrival in Community Health Centres of dental services for people who couldn’t afford care elsewhere; streamlining mental health care by amalgamating nine service providers into three; and the Seniors Managing Independent Living Easily (SMILE) program, which was “such a success that the demand became much greater than anticipated.”
Garry Laws, the chief executive officer of Addictions and Mental Health Services-Hastings Prince Edward, said he had “zero information” on the LHINs’ fate but the reports weren’t surprising.”
“It’s changing times,” he said, but added that can happen “even when you have the same government.”
He said he couldn’t comment on what it could mean for his agency, explaining staff were still implementing changes from the amalgamation.
“We have been very busy here.”
Huras acknowledged the need for “a central vision” but said its implementation must vary by region because of different geography, resources and other factors. It’s why each province and territory has regional health authorities, he said.
Prior to LHINs’ creation there were seven Ministry of Health offices in Ontario and 16 district health councils.
Huras said LHINs have held service providers to account for ministry funding allocated by the LHINs.
“Because of that, hospitals were balanced across the province. They’re certainly facing financial pressures, but they’re balanced.”
He also noted the LHIN had appointed interim supervisors for about 15 providers, including hospitals, when changes were needed.
Huras said staff have been planning to create “regional systems of integrated care” to improve the flow of patients through the health sector.
“I actually think some of the discussion that’s happening in Toronto right now is not dissimilar to this.”
He said putting patients first had always been the goal. When the government announces its plan for doing that, he said, “We will do everything in our power to make that happen.”
Friday’s meeting on mental health care, meanwhile, was expected to involve more than 20 delegates of agencies in Hastings, Prince Edward and Northumberland counties. It was one in a series of consultations intended to identify the sector’s needs, press secretary Chazan said. She added it would help to build “a comprehensive and connected mental health and addictions system.”
“Our government is committed to an Ontario where patients don’t need to be in crisis to get the mental health and addictions treatment they need, when they need it,” she wrote.
Host MPP Smith said the government will invest a record amount in mental health care over 10 years.
Despite the LHINs’ restructuring of mental health care, he said, there are still long waiting lists for care.
“If we’re spending $1.9 billion, we want to ensure that it’s providing that seamless service that people expect, and really, it’s something that doesn’t exist right now,” he said. “It’s a fragmented approach that’s tough to navigate for those that need mental health care.”
He said the meeting, scheduled for 90 minutes, was a chance for workers “to be open and honest about what they’re facing.” Also invited were the mayors of Belleville, Quinte West and Prince Edward County, police and hospital officials.
Quinte Health Care community relations director Catherine Walker had no comment in advance of the meeting and said staff would not comment on the LHINs’ future until a decision was made.
“We promised a transformational change in health care and that’s what I believe the minister will deliver,” Smith said.
