PONTIAC – The Arnprior Packers came out strong last Friday night despite being pretty much matched shot for shot by the Pontiacs offense during the first period, as Arnprior managed to keep Shawville off the scoreboard, while counting 4 goals to end the 1st period 4-0 Packers.  Coming in to start off strong in the second, Mathew Labrosse got the Pontiacs on the board 1:11 in with a goal on an assist from Coovi-Sirois and Genest.  But another goal proved elusive as the Packers got physical resulting in Shawville’s first and fifth ranked scorers getting to join Arnprior’s mucker in the Bad Box, allowing the Packers to cash in on the power play.  Adding one more goal, the second period finished 6-1 for the visiting team.

The Pontiacs opened up the 3rd strong when Chris Bones on a set up from Dylan McNamara drove the puck in making it 6-2 only 57 seconds into the period.  Shortly afterwards the Labrosse/Genest Express, along with Wyatt Dumont, upped the ante on the power play with another goal bringing the score to 6-3.  Shawville continued to pour on the heat, dominating shots-on-goal throughout ...

The Pontiac Juniors are back at home tonight to host Arnprior as the Packers look to pay back ShawVegas for the near shut-out they suffered at the hands of the Pontiacs the last time both teams met on November 3rd.  Mathew Labrosse set the tone for the game early at 1:51 mark with Shawville’s first goal with help from Coovi-Sirois and Vezina, as the Pontiacs stopped any attempt by Arnprior to get real-estate on the scoreboard for the entire first period.

Playing a very strong game, Liam Poirier started off the second period in the tradition set by Labrosse in the first by slamming home the biscuit special-delivery making the score 2-0 for Shawville just 2:40 into the start of the 2nd period.  The Packers got the advantage when Pontiacs Julian Dumont was tossed into the sin bin after...

New Council votes to end adoption of recent zoning Bylaws

LUSKVILLE — A slightly larger than usual crowd were in attendance for the first meeting of the 9th Municipal Council’s first meeting held in Luskville, Tuesday November 19, 2013 at the Community Centre.  Since the regularly scheduled meeting planned for November 12th had been postponed, this meeting fell under the category of a Special Meeting and took place under the rules governing such cases.

The meeting began with each member of the new Council being sworn in by Director General Sylvain Bertrand, and Assistant DG Benedikt Kuhn.  The meeting then proceeded as normal and Council got down to the business at hand. 

The item on the agenda which seemed to be of the most interest to those in attendance was a motion to end the procedure of adoption and coming into force of the urban planning Bylaws voted on at a special meeting of the outgoing Council on October 1st, just prior to the election.  Following a contentious public consultation,..

Jets Roll Out Matinée Gong Show in Metcalfe

There’s no denying that the Shawville Pontiacs are a hard working team.  Last week’s grueling schedule saw “ShawVegas” travel to West Ottawa to take on the Golden Knights, followed by a home game crowd-pleaser in the Shaw when the Pontiacs delivered a decisive victory against the Stittsville Royals, on the eve of Sunday afternoon’s appearance in Metcalfe to take on the Jets.

Playing all that hockey in between running equipment drives and fundraisers means the Pontiacs are a busy organization.  Last Fridays “Fill the Rink for Brent” fundraiser hosted in Perth by the Blue Wings brought in $18,111, which was matched dollar for dollar by the Wings.  Add to that another $12,500 from website donations and the total for the night was an impressive $48,722! 

5 trouble spots on Ottawa-area highways

Categories: 

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.

Language wars: Quebec unions share ‘horror stories’ of civil servants who used bilingualism to help citizens

MONTREAL — As hearings began Tuesday into Quebec’s proposed tightening of its language law, the main union representing provincial civil servants had some horror stories to share about life on the frontlines.

The details were so shocking that employees’ names and workplaces were withheld to protect them from possible repercussions, the Syndicat de la fonction publique et parapublique du Québec (SFPQ) wrote in a brief tabled at the National Assembly.

There was the perfectly bilingual clerk at Revenue Quebec who frequently meets people who are more at ease discussing their tax questions in English. The clerk prefers to go along rather than turn “a tax problem into a language debate” and possibly spark a complaint.
