    What a night it was at the Fireside Inn last week! Not only was it wing night (2 for 1 every Thursday), but it was a great opportunity to listen to some fab music and enjoy some quality time with friends. Last night we were treated to a night of the band Young Running. If you haven't had a chance to listen to their music yet, then you're in for a treat; check their website http://www.youngrunning.com and hopefully you can attend one of their upcoming gigs! Here's a bit more about the group http://music.cbc.ca/#!/artists/Young-Running. By the way lead vocalist Liam Kearney is from Elliot Lake

    Bill C-51 rally in Elliot Lake this past Saturday saw several people gather to denounce the Harper government's terrorist legislation. The Conservatives are using the politics of fear to try to convince people to surrender their rights and are undermining the principles of justice in Canada. Samedi dernier j’ai participé a la manifestation qui a eu lieu à Elliot Lake contre le projet de loi C-51 du Gouvernement Conservateur. Plusieurs se sont rassemblés pour dénoncer la législation antiterroriste du Premier Ministre Harper. Les conservateurs utilisent la politique de peur pour essayer de convaincre les Canadiennes et Canadiens d’abandonner leurs droits et sape les principes de la justice au Canada.

    Le froid n'a pas dissuadé les gens de participer au carnaval d'hiver de Val Rita-Harty. Une démonstration de patinage artistique ainsi qu’un match de hockey ont débuté l'inauguration de la patinoire. La fin de semaine était remplis d'activités pour tous les âges. The cold weather didn't deter people from participating in the Val Rita-Harty winter carnival. A figure skating demonstration and hockey game were the highlights of the skating rink grand opening. The weekend included lots of activities for everyone to enjoy.

I had a great time at the spaghetti supper and got to try my hockey skills during a fundraiser; not bad at all - I scored on the first shot! Il y avait également une variété d'activités lors du carnaval d'hiver de Smooth Rock Falls. On a bien dégusté au souper spaghetti à la Légion et on c’est aussi bien amusé. J’ai pu pratiquer mes compétences de hockey durant une collecte de fonds ; pas mal du tout, comme j'ai compté un but lors de mon premier lancé!

    Here are the questions I posed on Monday about the recent train derailments in Northern Ontario. It seems this government has learned little since Lac Megantic and the biggest problem we are still facing is self-regulation. This time, we are lucky that no one was hurt, but the damage to the Mattagami River system could be significant and the watershed is part of the Mattagami First Nation who are concerned about the well-being and suitability for eating of the one million walleye they stocked in the watershed last year. Lundi pendant la Période de questions, j’ai posé des questions au sujet des récents déraillements des trains dans le Nord de l’Ontario. Il semblerait que le gouvernement n’a rien appris depuis le désastre du Lac Mégantic et le plus gros problème auquel nous faisons face est l’autorégulation. Cette fois, nous sommes chanceux que personne n’ait été blessé mais le dommage causé à la rivière Mattagami pourrait être significatif et la ligne de partage des eaux fait partie de la Première Nation Mattagami. Ces gens sont inquiets de leur bien-être et de l’état du poisson qu’on retrouve dans la rivière.

It was informative and a great opportunity to meet with prospectors, organizations, businesses, municipal and indigenous representatives all involved with mining industry projects. Mining is an important part of our economy in Northern Ontario and is set to become an even bigger piece as the Ring of Fire opens up.

A big thanks to Keynote speaker Annette Cutknife-Guilt and Morgan Fawcett for sharing their journeys with us and to Daniel Cutknife-Guilt for the impressive performance. Their testimonials assisted in better understanding the challenges that individuals, families and communities face. The proof abounds that we must do a better job of developing resources to bring about change to better address FASD in a multi-modal way.

    Just catching up on a few pictures I wanted to post. These are from the Espanola Winterfest two weekends ago. Winterfest schedule was packed with activities and events. On the Saturday I dropped in to support the Friends of the Library at their Bake Sale & Paperbacks and picked up delicious Valentine cookies and cinnamon buns. I had a golden time and delicious turkey supper at the Senior’s Appreciation Dinner hosted by the Rotary Club who ensure that seniors are involved in the Winter Carnival activities; it’s a fabulous way to recognize the important contributions seniors make in the community. A big THANK YOU goes out to the Espanola Rotary Club for all that they do to support their community and for their international work. After supper I was entertained at the Annual Minor Hockey Tournament – Little Current vs Elliot Lake; it was fabulous to see these young girls and boys give it their all.

I had the opportunity to meet many of the inbound & outbound young people who are taking part in the program. These young people are exceptional ambassadors representing their communities and eager immerse themselves in their host communities. The goals of the Rotary International Youth Exchange are to provide an opportunity of a lifetime to young people as they get to spend about one year in another country learning the language and culture. All the best to all the participants and thank you to the Rotary Clubs for providing these youth with a chance to broaden their horizons and realize their potential.
