A Weatherbomb For Christmas?
Friday, December 19, 2014 (20074 reads)


The Weather Network is following a couple of storms that they say could form into a weather bomb next week over the Christmas holidays which could impact travel plans.

Forecasters said there are still a lot of unanswered questions which will become clearer over the next several days. Once they have a better handle on the track and intensity, then they can start talking what we may be looking at in the way of precipitation. In this situation, it is highly likely that those impacted by the storm, may see heavy precipitation in the form of rain or snow, and others will likely see little to no precipitation.

The forecast model still develops a strong low pressure system for Christmas Eve into Christmas Day) with the main cores of the lows tracking up the Appalachians impacting the Maritimes, Quebec and eastern Ontario with residual effects across the rest of Ontario and merging into one system.

MAHC Completes Renovations to Telemedicine Office in Bracebridge
Tuesday, December 16, 2014 (1422 reads)


Renovations at the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital in Bracebridge of the new telemedicine office are improving patient access to specialist health care services.

The Ontario Telemedicine Network office and telemedicine coordinator at the SMMH Site recently relocated to a larger, more clinically appropriate space in the hospital.

Telemedicine is used to facilitate consults between trauma specialists and MAHC health care teams to stabilize a patient and prepare for the patient to be transferred to a specialized centre. The videoconferencing technology is also used on a scheduled, one-on-one basis to connect patients with specialty services such as dermatology and psychiatry.

Natalie Bubela, Chief Executive Officer at MAHC says “Access to specialists is a challenge in a rural community hospital, telemedicine is extremely important to connecting patients to specialized care without them having to leave their community," she said. 

Between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014, more than 2,100 patients accessed health care via telemedicine at MAHC’s two sites.

Wednesday, December 10, 2014 (18914 reads)


Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Muskoka/Parry Sound and is forecasting total amounts of 15 to 20 cm in accumulation.

Province Passes Transparency Act
Wednesday, December 10, 2014 (4029 reads)


Yesterday, the Public Sector and MPP Accountability and Transparency Act, 2014 passed third reading in the Ontario legislature. Part of Ontario’s Open Government initiative, this act promises to strengthen political accountability, making the business of government more transparent, and gives Officers of the Legislature more responsibility in their roles.

 

The legislation is to provide more oversight over and accountability at arms-length government entities, endeavouring that tax dollars are spent wisely as the government delivers on its commitment to eliminate the deficit by 2017-18. In addition, this act will give the government the ability to control the compensation of executives in broader public sector service organizations such as Ornge, eHealth, Metrolinx, OLG and the LCBO.

 

The legislation will:

 

• Expand the Ontario Ombudsman’s role to include municipalities, school boards and publicly-funded universities

 

• Require cabinet ministers, parliamentary assistants, opposition leaders and their respective staff to post their expenses online, making Ontario a leader in expense reporting

 

• Require the Speaker to post online MPP expense information for out-of-riding travel, hotel accommodation related to that travel, meals and hospitality.

 

• Allow the government to appoint a Patient Ombudsman to respond to complaints about public hospitals, long-term care homes, and community care access centres

 

• Expand the Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth’s mandate, providing oversight and new powers to investigate children’s aid societies

 

• Give the government greater oversight of air ambulance service providers, including the ability to appoint members to the board of directors as well as supervisors and special investigators and measures to protect whistleblowers

 

• Modernize lobbyist registration by requiring businesses and organizations to register when their staff spend at least 50 hours per year lobbying government and provide the Ontario Integrity Commissioner as Lobbyist Registrar with investigative powers and the ability to impose penalties, including prohibiting individuals from lobbying for up to two years.

The Muskoka Fire Chiefs have a holiday wish and they need your help to make it come true.

“We are wishing for a fire-free holiday season this year,” said Huntsville//Lake of Bays Fire Chief Stephen Hernen. “But we need you to make this come true!” he said.

While fire can happen anywhere, at anytime, it most often strikes when we let our guard down - when we’re distracted by the hustle and bustle of the holidays, by the telephone, by the kids or by the doorbell, Hernen says. All it takes is for a pot to be left on the stove, or a candle left burning unattended, and a family’s holiday celebrations can turn to tragedy.

“Consider using battery-operated or electric flameless candles,” said Gravenhurst Fire Chief Larry Brassard. “Never leave cooking unattended, drink responsibly, and keep a close eye on those who do not.”

The Muskoka Fire Chiefs also remind you that it’s the law to maintain working smoke alarms on every storey and outside all sleeping areas of your home. Everyone is urged to take a few minutes to test their smoke alarms and install new batteries if needed.

Homes with a fuel-burning appliance or an attached garage must have a working Carbon Monoxide alarm installed adjacent to each sleeping area of the home.

Condo or apartment buildings with a service room require that working CO alarms be installed in the service room and adjacent to each sleeping area of all residential suites directly above, below and beside the service room.

The holidays are a time when friends and family visit. Have a home fire escape plan with two ways out and make sure everyone is familiar with the plan.

Special Weather Statement Calls for Significant Snowfall
Wednesday, December 10, 2014 (30122 reads)


There's a Special weather statement in effect for: Muskoka/Parry Sound.  The weather man is warning that the potential for significant snowfall for parts of Southern & Central Ontario is good as a low pressure system near Cape Cod will slowly track north to New England Thursday. An area of snow associated with this low is already affecting Eastern Ontario and is forecast to continue spreading north and west today. The snow is forecast to begin over Central Ontario and the Golden Horseshoe this evening and move into Southwestern Ontario early Thursday morning.

General snowfall totals are expected to approach 10 cm over most of the area. However, higher totals of near 15 cm will be likely along a swath extending from Kingston to the National Capital Region, which borders regions under the snowfall warning. Amounts of 10 to 15 cm will also be possible over the Niagara Peninsula as well as near and northeast of Georgian Bay. In addition, gusty northerly winds accompanying the system could reduce visibilities locally at times in snow and blowing snow.

Klinck Re-elected as District Chair
Tuesday, December 09, 2014 (1747 reads)


District Council voted for the status quo last night by re-electing John Klinck as Chair of the District of Muskoka.  Klinck was up against former Huntsville Mayor Hugh Mackenzie, former Liberal Candidate Dan Waters and consultant Stuart Morley.

Klinck was elected on the first ballot, winning with 15 of 22 votes in the first round.  Klinck campaigned on his record having served on District Council for 5 terms including 2 as Chair.

He said that this term would focus on 5 common themes:

• Environment and fiscal sustainability

• Economic review of services

• Structural change & efficiencies

• Infrastructure

• Better communication with ratepayers.

Klinck also said that policing costs, taxation & healthcare were high on the agenda.

Former Huntsville Mayor Hugh Mackenzie came in with 6 votes and promised that if elected, he would shake up district by challenging the status quo.

Mackenzie promised to transfer ownership of roads back to municipalities if it made financial sense.  He would address the inequality of votes between municipalities.  He also would make changes in the planning process - delivering services to taxpayers more efficiently.

Mackenzie also said he would look at reducing the number of councilors around the table, look at public elections of the chair and be more accountable to tax payers.

Several Huntsville area councilors said that they were shocked at the vote expecting it to be a closer race.

Province Introduces Ontario Pension Plan
Tuesday, December 09, 2014 (9718 reads)


Yesterday, the province introduced the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan Act, 2014. The Act, would, if passed, lay out a framework for the creation of the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan and commit the government to establishing the plan by January 1, 2017.

In the coming weeks, the government will release a consultation paper about proposed implementation details of the ORPP, with formal consultations to follow in January 2015.

The province will also introduce the Pooled Registered Pension Plans Act, 2014, legislation that would provide a legal framework for the establishment and administration of pooled registered pension plans in Ontario.

The Province says that a strong retirement income system is part of their economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan will build Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure pension plan so everyone can afford to retire.

Fewer than 35 per cent of workers in Ontario currently have a workplace pension plan. Coverage for workers in the private sector is even lower, with only 28 per cent having the benefit of plan membership.

Fire Dept Urge You to Stay Off The Ice
Friday, December 05, 2014 (570 reads)


Fire officials are urging caution about local ice conditions on lakes rivers and ponds in the Muskoka area. "We are currently experiencing weather conditions that fluctuate from well below freezing to well above freezing and back, all within a few days span," says Jason Jongen, deputy fire chief of the Gravenhurst Fire Department. "Some lakes and rivers may appear to have a solid surface, when in fact the ice that has formed is still very thin and is not capable of supporting much weight. We are especially urging parents to talk with their children about the dangers of venturing out onto ice," he adds.

Many factors affect ice thickness including the type of water, location, the time of year and other environmental factors such as water depth and size of body of water, currents, tides and other moving water, chemicals including salt, fluctuations in water levels, logs, rocks and docks absorbing heat from the sun, and changing air temperature.

The Canadian Red Cross also offers the following tips: When You Are Alone On Ice. If you get into trouble on ice and you’re by yourself:

• Call for help.

• Resist the immediate urge to climb back out where you fell in. The ice is weak in this area.

• Use the air trapped in your clothing to get into a floating position on your stomach.

• Reach forward onto the broken ice without pushing down. Kick your legs to push your torso on the ice.

• When you are back on the ice, crawl on your stomach or roll away from the open area with your arms and legs spread out as far as possible to evenly distribute your body weight. Do not stand up! Look for shore and make sure you are going in the right direction.

When You Are With Others On Ice

• Rescuing another person from ice can be dangerous. The safest way to perform a rescue is from shore.

• Call for help. Consider whether you can quickly get help from trained professionals (police, fire fighters or ambulance) or bystanders.

• Check if you can reach the person using a long pole or branch from shore – if so, lie down and extend the pole to the person.

• If you go onto ice, wear a PFD and carry a long pole or branch to test the ice in front of you. Bring something to reach or throw to the person (e.g. pole, weighted rope, line or tree branch).

• When near the break, lie down to distribute your weight and slowly crawl toward the hole.

• Remaining low, extend or throw your emergency rescue device (pole, rope, line or branch) to the person.

• Have the person kick while you pull them out.

Muskoka Cash Mob Returns to Huntsville on Saturday
Friday, December 05, 2014 (2369 reads)


Following a successful event in November, the Muskoka Cash Mob is returning tomorrow for another event and are encouraging the public to come out and support local business by mobbing a yet to be announced business with the promise of spending $20.

Muskoka Cash Mob is an initiative of Hunters Bay Radio and for the past 3 years, we have promoted shopping locally to maintain a strong economic base.  When you spend a portion of your shopping dollar at a locally owned business, over 50% of that money stays in town and is re-circulated over and over, providing jobs and other economic spin offs.

In the past, Cash Mob has helped local businesses through the shoulder season by encouraging residents to shop locally.

Meet us in front of Huntsville Town Hall at Noon on Saturday.  The Cash Mob is followed up by a celebration at a local eatery and a fun time is had by all.

Chamber Members Support Bylaw Change
Friday, December 05, 2014 (7939 reads)


Huntsville Lake of Bays Chamber of Commerce  members voted overwhelmingly to support the organization last night by approving a motion that would allow the Chamber to borrow money  to clear outstanding debts incurred after some events ran at a loss last year.

Chamber of Commerce Chair, Doug Campbell and Executive Director Kelly Haywood explained that the chamber suffered a loss in both the Muskoka Sound Festival and Girlfriends Getaway Weekend.

The loss for the year ending on September 2014 is $133,000 plus another $69,000 that is attributed to Girlfriends Getway Weekend , which is a part of this fiscal year.

Haywood explained that besides this years loss, there was also a $25,000 in the previous year and a $10,000 line of credit.

Some members were concerned about approving the request without having more detailed financials.  Campbell reminded members that if the motion was not approved the board would have to sell their building.

One member pointed out that the chamber had successfully paid off a mortgage in the range of $160,000 in the past.

Mayor Scott Aitchison, the past treasurer of the chamber said that the chamber had been taking risks on behalf of the town and have been very successful up to this point.  He also indicated that he thought the chamber should not sell the building, but think about renting it out if they decide to move in the future. He said that "struggles like this make you stronger and this will make the chamber stronger."

Snow Squalls Possible Today
Wednesday, December 03, 2014 (1393 reads)


A Snow squall watch is in effect for the area. The weatherman says snow squalls are expected to develop later today in a westerly flow off Georgian Bay and Lake Huron during the morning hours and progress southward as the winds become northwesterly throughout the day.

Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate at a rate of 5-10 cm every 12 hours with local rates of up to 15 cm.

Environment Canada says the snow squalls should weaken by Thursday morning.
