Cantrip is coming to Belfountain

Cantrip is coming to Belfountain! 

Please come to their show on September 20th, 7:30 p.m. at the Belfountain Community Hall.  The evening will be one of those special ones, where we’re all carried away with the sounds of fiddles, guitars and feet, pipes and voices. 

Eric McDonald was the guest guitar player for The Inside Track when they played in Belfountain recently. Eric is a member of Cantrip  http://www.cantrip-music.com who are from Scotland.   The Orcadian, the oldest newspaper from Orkney, Scotland, says this: “Their music comes from wild landscapes and wild places of the spirit.” Their name is an Old Scots word meaning a charm, magic spell or piece of mischief, and that is certainly how their music sounds. 

Tickets are $25, and you can send susangesner@me.com an interac transfer to reserve tickets or email to ask any questions.

Erin Wastewater Treatment Plant Update

Town of Erin Moves Forward with Wastewater
For Immediate Release
August 30, 2019

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks has approved the Town of Erin’s Wastewater Environmental Assessment. Following a fifteen-month review period, the Town is now able to move forward with the next steps in the construction of a wastewater treatment plant.

After a comprehensive review of the Town’s Wastewater Environmental Assessment, Minister Yurek, of the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, was satisfied with the data collected and considerations the Town has taken to ensure environmental and economical requirements have been met.

Town Council have been proactively discussing the Town’s wastewater options with key decision makers with the Federal & Provincial Government. Most recently, Council met with the Ministry of Infrastructure, at the 2019 Associations of Municipalities Ontario conference, to discuss potential funding options for the new system.

“The Town of Erin has diligently worked to get to this point and I am thrilled that the Minister is satisfied with the completed assessment,” said Mayor Allan Alls. “As we continue towards the next phase of our project, Council remains dedicated to engaging with residents as we build towards a vibrant future for everyone,” he added.

100 Debates on the Environment – Oct 7th 7 p.m – 9 p.m.

October 7th 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.   Please click on this link to RSVP for the Dufferin Caledon Debate


100 debates on the Environment has a simple mission: to make the environment an issue that no party and no candidate can ignore by organizing more than 100 inclusive, politically neutral, and environment-focused all-candidates debates in communities across Canada.

The debates will create a forum where voters can hear directly from candidates about their visions for the environment. They will create accountability for elected leaders and spur meaningful government action towards a sustainable future.

This project is made up of national non-profits, businesses, citizens’ groups, high schools and universities, individuals and many others. The project is being coordinated by GreenPAC and Equiterre.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are you hoping to achieve through this project?

The main objective of 100 Debates is to encourage a race to the top on climate change and broader environmental policy issues. It will demonstrate the strong public support that exists for environmental leadership, and enable the best policy ideas to come forward to compete for that support. Citizens will be able able to hold future MPs accountable for policy commitments made at each debate, and political parties will be encouraged to offer increasingly ambitious plans for environmental issues.

Why is the focus on debates?

This is an unprecedented initiative. Coordinated, issue-based debates have never been held on this scale in Canada.

How are you ensuring the debates are non-partisan and welcoming of candidates from all parties?

The 100 Debates project is a strictly non-partisan initiative focused on bringing voters together at the riding level to hear candidates’ best policy proposals for the environment. GreenPAC works will all major political parties to build environmental leadership, and the organizations involved with local debates have pledged to organize the debates in a manner that is non-partisan and fair to all parties. We ask all potential organizers to confirm that they aren’t actively affiliated with a party or candidate (and that they haven’t rejected one either). We are clear that local moderators must be neutral and conduct the debates in a fashion that doesn’t favour or disadvantage any party or candidate.

Separate from the 100 Debates initiative, GreenPAC will be endorsing candidates who are environmental leaders this election. As always, GreenPAC will endorse candidates from across all the major parties. The endorsements have no impact on the organization or format of the debates.

Who are you working with to organize local debates?

We are working with a wide range of individuals and organizations in ridings across the country, including businesses, non-profit community groups, faith-based organizations, teachers and students.

All organizations must reflect a non-partisan approach to organizing the debates. This means we are not working with organizations that have endorsed or rejected a candidate or party or that are actively affiliated with any candidate or party.

Who is behind this project?

GreenPAC is coordinating the 100 Debates initiative nationally, with support from Équiterre in Quebec. We are working with a range of organizations across sectors to help get the word out and find local organizers. The initiative is supported by the generous donations of community members and funders, some of which include the Insurance Bureau of Canada and the Ivey Foundation.
