Big changes are com­ing to the Up­per Canada District School Board this year. Like mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties across On­tario, the UCDSB is hold­ing elec­tions for its trus­tees and chair in Oc­to­ber. So far both the UCDSB Chair Jeff Mcmil­lan and lo­cal trustee Wendy Macpherson have an­nounced that they will not be seek­ing re-elec­tion. This board had a tu­mul­tuous term be­cause of the Pupil Ac­com­mo­da­tion Re­view process that saw sev­eral schools in the board close. Whether they would be re-elected or not, I un­der­stand why some board mem­bers would not be ea­ger to run again.

The high school se­nior bad­minton cham­pi­onships were held at Holy Trin­ity re­cently. Kris­ten Macrae of Glen­garry District High School won gold for the girls sin­gles and Bran­don Watkins of Tagwi won first for the boys.


Be­ware of scams! Scam­mers have re­cently taken out clas­si­fied ads in some news­pa­pers in SD&G. The ad asks for peo­ple to ap­ply to be a care­giver to an el­derly mother-in-law, but the scam­mers ask ap­pli­cants for their per­sonal in­for­ma­tion. Po­ten­tial em­ploy­ers do not need your SIN or credit card info. If you think some­one is try­ing to scam you, con­tact the OPP.
