    Bill Walker MPPFor Immediate Release July 23, 2014 WALKER CONGRATULATES MASSIE COMMUNITY CENTRE INC ON THEIR ONTARIO TRILLIUM FOUNDATION GRANT Owen Sound - The Massie Community Centre (aka “Massie Hall”) is happy to have received a grant of $38,900.00 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) to help complete upgrades, which will help to preserve this former one-room school house and provide a safer community meeting space for all rural residents within the hamlet of Massie. “This grant will be beneficial to complete capital upgrades providing a safer community meeting place for participants and will help sustain this key community facility.” Bill Walker, MPP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound “We appreciate very much the decision by the Ontario Trillium Foundation to provide funding for the restoration of our Community Centre. The building is not only an important part of our local heritage but also provides an ideal setting for many family and community activities.” Glen Martin, President, Massie Community Centre Inc. Massie Community Centre is housed in a former one-room rural schoolhouse built in 1871. Funding will preserve and promote this heritage site; it will enable the community to maintain the only venue for arts and culture, especially music. The repairs will help save the building. New windows and doors and weather-tight walls and the new heating system will markedly increase energy conservation, saving energy costs and reducing the impact on the environment. Funding will promote community building by preserving the space for meeting to socialize and for recreation and exercise. It is critical that the Centre remain open for use by the local community. A leading grant-maker in Ontario, the Ontario Trillium Foundation strengthens the capacity of the voluntary sector through investments in community-based initiatives. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OTF builds healthy and vibrant communities. For more information about Massie, visit www.massiemessenger.ca.

    Blaine CalkinsI know you share my enthusiasm for Canadian heritage activities like hunting and sport shooting. That is why I am writing to you today to share the good news. Our Conservative Government has made Swiss Arms and CZ-858 rifles legal to use, as they were before February 25 – the way it always should have been. What’s more, our Conservative Government also announced our intention to table the Common Sense Firearms Licensing Act. This legislation will streamline licensing and eliminate needless red tape for law-abiding gun owners, while keeping Canadians safe. Among other things, this will merge the Possession Only and Possession and Acquisition Licenses, as well as creating a grace period so that individuals that inadvertently miss renewing their firearms license are not made into criminals overnight. My foremost priority is keeping the public safe, through common sense policies Our Conservative Government will always stand up for the rights of law-abiding hunters, farmers and sport shooters. And we know where the other guys stand. The NDP and the Liberals have promised to bring back the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry, should they get the chance. And Justin Trudeau's newest "star" MP, Adam Vaughan, told the Toronto Star he wants to ban the sale of guns and bullets, saying "emotional reasons" from gun enthusiasts are not enough to justify access to ammunition. We believe that owning a firearm is a right, but a right that comes with responsibilities. That is why we are pursuing common sense firearms policies that keep Canadians safe, without needless red tape for law-abiding firearms owners.

    Chris CharltonTo celebrate his 50th birthday, Hamilton radio personality Mike Nabuurs will be broadcasting for 50 hours straight on 1150 AM CKOC from the parking lot of the Fortinos at Upper James and Rymal in support of Neighbour to Neighbour Centre beginning at noon on Sunday July 27 and concluding at 2 p.m. on Tuesday July 29. The summer months are traditionally a slow period for donations to the food bank and I encourage anyone who can to drop by with some canned food during the radiothon. Baby food, cereal, canned protein such as meat, poultry and fish, canned fruit, peanut butter, rice and chick peas are particularly needed. For all the details, just click here: http://www.hamiltonnews.com/news/hamilton-broadcaster-has-a-50th-birthday-to-remember/ And don't forget to wish Mike a happy 50th birthday!

    Ralph GoodaleHARPER CONSERVATIVES "ON THE ATTACK" AGAINST COURTS Remember in 2006 when Stephen Harper tried to reassure Canadians that they didn't need to worry about his "extreme tendencies" because three "safeguards" in our system of governance would hold him in check? One was the Senate as a chamber of sober second thought. Well, so much for that idea! Mr. Harper has mangled the Senate with wrong-headed appointments and constant manipulation. Trust is gone. Secondly, a strong public service was supposed to keep him within the confines of decent public policy. But Mr. Harper quickly made it known that advice from government officials is not valued and those who "speak truth to power" get punished. So intimidation reigns. The third safeguard was the Courts. And that's where the rubber hits the road. The judicial system has a measure of constitutional authority and independence that the first two do not. Governments are not above the law. When Prime Ministers, Parliaments and bureaucracies go wrong, citizens must have the right to challenge them in court. A number of courts at various levels - including judges who have been on the Bench for years and some who only just arrived - have questioned the legality and constitutionality of various Harper government actions and pieces of legislation. The issues at stake frequently involve the Charter of Canadian Rights and Freedoms, like a recent ruling that this government's treatment of refugees is, in some ways, "cruel and unusual". This enrages Harper Conservatives who have never accepted the legitimacy of the Charter - unlike some 80% of Canadians who regard it as a defining characteristic of our nationhood. So you have the unseemly spectacle of Stephen Harper and his entourage on frequent rampages against the courts and judges (including attacks on the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada) and the interpretations of the rights and freedoms enshrined in the Charter. What these Harper Conservatives ignore is that the Charter itself was duly and laboriously crafted, debated and enacted according to law. It reflects the democratic will of Canadians, which cannot be easily trumped. And it contains a safety valve - i.e., the "notwithstanding" clause - which dissidents can use, if they've got the courage. In other words, the Harper Conservatives could, in fact, legislate their distasteful ideology, but they would have to declare, upfront and explicitly for all Canadians to see, that they are doing so "notwithstanding" the traditions and values of a free and democratic society. Of course they'd rather not invoke the Notwithstanding Clause because it destroys their facade of respectability. So instead, they rant against the courts, accusing them of bad faith and "end runs" around democracy. Before embracing such criticism, note the prevailing mentality among the folks around Mr. Harper which led his Chief of Staff to think it was "okay" to make a $90,000 payment to a sitting Parliamentarian. Is that the kind of judgment you can trust, without recourse? And that's not all - take a hard look at the bruised and battered "democracy" that characterizes this Harper regime: • Hundreds of millions of tax dollars squandered on partisan government advertising to skew public opinion. Vicious attack-ads paid for with tax subsidies. Campaigns of character assassination aimed against charities, non-governmental organizations, church groups, public servants, scientists, statisticians, Officers of Parliament and public-interest watchdogs. • Tampering with Access-to-Information procedures. Stonewalling the Parliamentary Budget Officer. Limiting the work of House of Commons Committees. • Blatant misuse of Omnibus Bills, Prorogation and Closure to stifle reasonable debate and avoid accountability. • The conviction of the Conservative Party for more than a million dollars in illegal election campaign spending. The resignation of a Conservative Cabinet Minister over election violations in Labrador. The "robocall" electoral fraud trial now underway in Guelph. The Prime Minister's former Parliamentary Secretary on trial for other alleged election offences in Peterborough. • A Conservative scheme, defended publicly by Stephen Harper, to use robocalls to influence an independent electoral boundaries commission. • The new Conservative "Elections Act" which makes it harder for many Canadians to vote and easier for electoral fraud to go undetected. Given this perverse approach to democracy, it's probably a good thing that ordinary citizens have at least some ability to fight for their rights in court.
