Aylmer Bulletin

Frederick Forsythe Jr was an active community member and to remember his legacy the Forsythe family is organizing a 3-pitch tournament at the Luskville ballpark, May 30 to June 1. “In his honour we’re hosting a soft-ball charity tournament,” confirmed Patrick Forsythe, Fred’s son.

Taste of Pontiac: Maple Syrup from Muddy Hands Winery


Spring is officially here, and the sap has started flowing!

Maple Syrup is available at Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, located at 1965 Route 148 -- at the two lanes in Luskville.

Watch for our signs on the 148.

$11 for 1/2 Litre
$20 for 1 Litre.

Guaranteed to be free of any contaminents, and completely lead free -- which is commonly present in most "backyard" maple productions.

Government tested and inspected.

This year, we've extended our Maple syrup production significantly -- partnering with a local company that boils off the sap and packages it for us with all the necessary (and legal) nutritional information.

As always, our products are of high quality.

Who are we?

The name of our farm, Muddy Hands Farm & Winery, is named from the simple belief that amazing things come with passion, love, and hard work(tm).  We continue to strive to provide amazing quality products for your family -- directly from ours.

We know you will enjoy them as much as we do.

Many are aware that we've been selling quality farm related products here for a couple years -- fresh eggs, organic turkey and chickens, honey, beeswax candles, etc.

We've also planted our first vineyard in the spring of 2013, and you can expect some very interesting surprises from us in the coming years.  Pay attention, because something very exciting is coming to the Pontiac!

Please note: our store front hasn't been built yet, and the products are sold from the farm gate -- directly from our home.

Kelly Egan: Grieving parents’ suspicions confirmed after three-year wait


OTTAWA CITIZEN — The news arrived, with ironic timing, on Valentine’s Day, to hearts long broken.

David McColl, 58, waited for his wife Monica, 56, to arrive home before opening the letter from the office of the Quebec coroner.

He had been their only son. They would do this together.

Almost three years after Anthony (Tony) McColl, 19, was killed in a head-on crash on Hwy. 148, the Aylmer couple officially learned what they had long suspected. The other driver, Brandon Crawford, 20, who also perished, was impaired at the wheel.

The report, dated Jan. 17, said toxicology analysis on Crawford found traces of cannabis and a blood- alcohol level of 163 milligrams, just over twice the legal limit.

Les étudiants remettent des sacs de vêtements


Les étudiants du nouveau programme de technique de travail social au Collège Nouvelles Frontières, qui suivent un cours sur la sensibilisation à la pauvreté dans la grande région de l'Outaouais, ont décidé de mettre l'épaule à la roue. Au cours du mois de novembre, ils ont initié une collecte de vêtements et de jouets. Plus d'une douzaine de sacs de vêtements ont été remis à la Maison de la famille du Pontiac, à la Ressource d'aide et de dépannage pour alcooliques et toxicomanes de Luskville,..

Noël 2013 — Naissance d'une nouvelle tradition



Bruno Alary

À l'approche du temps des fêtes, les usines géantes outre-frontières fonctionnent à pleine vitesse afin d'offrir aux Québécois des piles monstrueuses de produits bon marché fabriqués au détriment de la main-d'œuvre canadienne.

Cette année sera différente. Cette année, les Québécois doivent penser aux leurs, penser à tous les Québécois. Il n'y a plus d'excuse...

5 trouble spots on Ottawa-area highways


There were six fatal crashes from 2001 to 2010 in a 10 km stretch from Luskville to the River bridge in Quyon, and another three in 2011 that killed seven people. Notable among these has a four-vehicle collision in December 2011 that killed a father and his four-year-old son, as well as the driver of the other vehicle, who police said had crossed the centre line at a curve in the road and crashed head-on with the other vehicle. It was also in 2011 near Luskville that two people were killed when a car struck a bear on a rural Quebec highway and sent the animal crashing into a second vehicle.

Explore some of the Ottawa region's fine wineries


It's hard to think of a more pleasant outing than a drive in the countryside around Ottawa to do a little wine tasting. This is a good time of year for it, with the leaves turning to a blaze of colour and the winemakers busy. If we don't already think of this as a winemaking region, it's about time we did. Here are five places to sample our regional wines.


Why it's worth the visit: What a combination - wine and lavender. Doug Briden and Joanne Labadie have been harvesting grapes and growing lavender on their family farm in West Quebec since 2006.

The Pathless Wood: Luskville Falls


The Luskville Falls trail leads up to the top of the Eardley Escarpment, which contains the richest and most fragile ecosystem in Gatineau Park. The Escarpment forms the dividing line between the rock of the Canadian Shield and the St. Lawrence Lowlands. It rises 270 metres from the floor of the Ottawa Valley and extends more than 30 kilometres. The waterfall is only a short hike from the parking lot, and is most spectacular in the spring when runoff from the melting snow increases the volume of water cascading down the face of the escarpment...
