    Happy 60th Birthday Craig! Although the weather wasn't cooperating for the first part of the day, it didn't stop the many well wishers from dropping in on Craig Maxwell's Come & Go Tea Party. Maurianne, made certain that there was plenty of tasty sweets for everyone to enjoy. Hope the rest of the day was as grand as the first part. Cheers!!

    I came across a pair of bald eagles in Sowerby (Township of Huron Shores) on Saturday. When I stopped to take a picture, one flew away. As you can see, the other one stuck around to claim all the fame and glory.

    On Saturday I took in the annual Shamrock Figure Skating Club's Pasta Dinner and followed it up with Echo Bay’s Festival of Lights. The floats were remarkable and a grand time was had by all. We were entertained by the Royal Sovereign Sea Cadets (RCSCC #46) band while Santa made his rounds. Thank you for the warm welcome! Happy Holidays everyone!

    Lots going on in Spanish last weekend. The annual Spanish and area Christmas Market was bursting at the seams with vendors and shoppers; nice opportunity to pick up unique Christmas Gifts and support fundraising efforts for the food-bank and medical clinic. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 576 also held its annual Christmas Bazaar which always has a good variety of baked goods, penny sales, silent auction and a delicious lunch. Thanks to everyone who are so active in their community and volunteer their time for these important causes.

    As we prepare to mark the 25th anniversary of the attack at École Polytechnique de Montréal this December 6th, New Democrats devoted much of our Question Period efforts to issues related to violence against women. Here are my questions.

    Comme nous nous préparons à marquer le 25e anniversaire de l’attaque à l’École Polytechnique de Montréal le 6 décembre, les néo-démocrates ont consacré une grande partie de nos questions lors de la période de questions en Chambre à des questions liées à la violence contre les femmes. Voici mes questions.

    Congratulations to all Civic Awards recipients, especailly Nancy-Jo Wannan whose fingerprints are all over so much of what makes Elliot Lake a great place to live. Her passion for competitive swimming and work with ELAC, service on the Board of Entertainment Series - year after year, and hearty involvement with the Courier de Bois are great examples of why she was honoured this year. It gave me great satisfaction to join everyone in cheering her on at this year’s awards. Way to go Nancy!

    Trying to catch up with some of the pics on my camera. These are from the Crystal Shawanda’s Benefit Concert for Jolene Courtemanche. The concert was held on September 13th at the Espanola Complex and those in attendance were treated to quite a show by Crystal and her husband. A host of fundraisers have been held to assist with the purchase of a van to accommodate Jolene's wheelchair. She is an exceptional women and the response has been nopthing short of phenomenal; the final goal is very close to being achieved. Here’s a link to the efforts so far: http://moosefm.com/cjjms/news/another-wheelchair-fundraiser-for-courtemanche/

    There are many Remembrance Day ceremonies in Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing and it is impossible for me to participate in all of them. I’m sharing some pictures from a few of the ceremonies that I was able to attend (Fauquier, Webwood, Espanola High School, Elliot Lake: Cenotaph & St. Joseph Manor) that took place throughout Veterans Week. Il y a plusieurs cérémonies du Jour du souvenir qui se déroulent à travers la circonscription d’Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing et il m’est impossible de participer à chacune. Alors, je partage avec vous des photos de quelques-unes des cérémonies auxquelles j’ai pu assister (Fauquier, Webwood, École Secondaire Espanola, et Elliot Lake : cénotaphe et Manoir St. Joseph) qui ont eu lieu tout au long de la Semaine des anciens combattants.
