Cyclists to City Hall

  • Date: Wednesday, June 24, 2009
  • Time: 7pm
  • Location: Hamilton Convention Centre
  • Address: 1 Summers Lane (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Randy Kay
  • Email: tlchamilton@gmail.com

CYCLISTS! ACT NOW TO ENSURE HAMILTON'S CYCLING FUTURE! Contact Your City Councillor

If you cycle, or know someone who does, we need you to let your local politician know that you support an integrated cycling network of bike lanes and paths.

Council will be voting on how much they will fund the Shifting Gears Cycling Plan Wednesday, June 24, 2009!

7pm, Hamilton Convention Centre, 1 Summers Lane

If cyclists attend one city council meeting, this is the one! Come out and bring your friends!

A full list of councillors, contact info and ward boundaries can be found here:

http://www.myhamilton.ca/myhamilton/CityandGovernment/YourElectedOfficials/CityCouncillors/

The best case scenario: City councillors approve $2.5 million in funding each year , which would see the urban cycling network completed in 10 years and the rural web of bike paths completed in 20 years

AGAINST: "Councillor Tom Jackson frequently hears from residents who want more recreational trails. He's not sure if those same people want to bike to work on city streets. 'I'm not detecting a huge clamouring for commuter lanes. '"

Flamborough's Councillor "Margaret McCarthy is sceptical additional bike lanes would be well used given the escarpment, weather, transit improvements and heavy traffic. 'It seems to me an unsafe practice, ' she said. 'For my money, this wouldn't go forward. '"

Terry Whitehead: "Convince me that investing over fifty million dollars on a seasonal activity would be better than making this investment into public transit."

FOR: Councillor Bob Bratina "If you've been to Europe and seen it, you believe it," he said. "We need to evolve a little more."

HOW?: "The key to achieving high levels of cycling appears to be the provision of separate cycling facilities along heavily travelled roads and at intersections, combined with traffic calming of most residential neighbourhoods. Extensive cycling rights of way...are complemented by ample bike parking, full integration with public transport, comprehensive traffic education and training of both cyclists and motorists, and a wide range of promotional events intended to generate enthusiasm and wide public support for cycling." - from Making Cycling Irresistible: Lessons from The Netherlands, Denmark and Germany by JOHN PUCHER and RALPH BUEHLER

COMPARE: Annual Cost of Operating the Red Hill Parkway (8km total): $2.65 million Annual Cost to Implement the Cycling Plan over 20 years : $2.5 million for a total of 566km of bike lanes

Tell Me Another (at the Hamilton Fringe)

A beautiful and chilling show" -- Raise the Hammer reviewer Amanda Nesbitt

"Something here for everyone; especially aficionados of the creepy." -- Ontario Arts Review's Danny Gaisin.

A trilogy of unsettling fables. Eschewing dialogue for dance, Red sheds new light and scads of blood on a beloved girl-meets-wolf story. The Juniper Tree, a sadly-overlooked Grimm's fable of cannibalism and payback, is presented as a Depression-era ballad. In the puppet story Fox and Girl, a modern father's imagination mashes centuries of fairytale symbols.

Tell Me Another (Hamilton Fringe show)

A beautiful and chilling show" -- Raise the Hammer reviewer Amanda Nesbitt

"Something here for everyone; especially aficionados of the creepy." -- Ontario Arts Review's Danny Gaisin.

A trilogy of unsettling fables. Eschewing dialogue for dance, Red sheds new light and scads of blood on a beloved girl-meets-wolf story. The Juniper Tree, a sadly-overlooked Grimm's fable of cannibalism and payback, is presented as a Depression-era ballad. In the puppet story Fox and Girl, a modern father's imagination mashes centuries of fairytale symbols.

Sons of Sisyphus

  • Date: Friday, July 24, 2009
  • Time: 10:30
  • Location: Hamilton Theatre Inc.
  • Address: 140 MacNab St. North, Hamilton (Google Maps)

Sisyphus pushed the boulder. The sons share their father's corrupt nature, and are lifers in a maximum-security prison. Roy, or Beast, is in the jungle and in the jungle you feed on your prey and instill fear wherever you roam. Bunny's real name is Boris, but Boris doesn't really suit him given his girlish appearance and mannerisms. His parents and the Church failed him and now he has to pay for his sins. Gerald loves God so much that, like Abraham, he's taken a ride down Highway 61. "Where do you want this killin done? Down on Highway 61". Henry almost made it through life without having to live with his brothers. But then one hot summer night, his brain burning like gunpowder, he finds his hands covered with blood.

Trash On Wheels Film Party - Classroom 16mm!

Trash Palace - "Toronto's Classiest Cinema" - is proud to present THE TRASH ON WHEELS FILM PARTY - a back-to-school touring show of classroom films, cartoons and more from the files of Canada's most demented film fanatics!

Hosted by Trash Palace programmer Jonathan Culp, TRASH ON WHEELS brings a full evening of lost, forgotten and undiscovered gems from the celluloid dumpsters of our nation to your town. Armed with their trusty 16mm film projector, a trunkload of film reels from the 60s and 70s, cold drinks, and a fully stocked snack bar (including handmade vegan truffles from Boardwalk Chocolates!) Trash Palace will give you a taste of the madness that we've been dishing out at our home base for over two years.

With a constantly changing lineup of titles - partially selected by the audience via the "Trash Palace Applause-O-Meter" - every screening is a whole new ballgame. Will you see angry puppets smacking around their friends? Evil dancing cigarettes? Washed up pop stars ranting about LSD? Christian college students partying with the Virgin Mary? Animated sex ed lessons? Or masked headmasters wielding lawnmowers?

This is no stinkin' film festival - it's THE TRASH ON WHEELS FILM PARTY!

TRASH PALACE, named "the 11th best place to watch a film in Toronto" by BlogTO, shows shorts and features every Friday at their secret location. The Toronto Star writes, "It lives up to its seamy potential...the fun is pure, untainted by cynicism, high expectations or irony." And the National Post observes, "Trash Palace's screenings promise the best in films that somebody out there was desperate to get rid of." Check them out at http://www.trashpalace.ca.

Melrose Movie Nights: Blue Gold

Please join us for the first film of the 2009-2010 season. Our schedule for the entire 2009-2010 season is posted on our website.

********************************** Blue Gold: World Water Wars (Sam Bozzo, 2008)

Friday, October 2, 2009 at 7:00pm.

Melrose United Church Locke St. & Homewood Ave. **********************************

In every corner of the globe, we are polluting, diverting, pumping, and wasting our limited supply of fresh water at an expedential level as population and technology grows. The rampant overdevelopment of agriculture, housing and industry increase the demands for fresh water well beyond the finite supply, resulting in the desertification of the earth.

Corporate giants force developing countries to privatize their water supply for profit. Wall Street investors target desalination and mass bulk water export schemes. Corrupt governments use water for economic and political gain. Military control of water emerges and a new geo-political map and power structure forms, setting the stage for world water wars.

SuperCrawl

The arts and cultural scene has been exploding in Hamilton. Whether you love theatre or dance, music or visual art, modern or classical, the scene has come alive. One key event which has drawn great media attention and thousands of participants is the James North Art Crawl.

Art Crawl is monthly event held on the first second Friday of each month. Dozens of galleries and studios launch new exhibitions, musicians perform in the street, local artist sell their wares, the Art Bus delivers visitors from far and wide - and hundreds of people fill the sidewalks as they weave through the event.

This year, in celebration of the collective success of this bourgeoning neighbourhood James Street North is hosting SUPER CRAWL.

What is SUPER CRAWL?

Imagine Art Crawl something else on a half dozen energy drinks.

First, we've received permission to close down James Street between Cannon and Wilson - this will allow throngs of people to fill the streets and freely enjoy the area.

It also means we have the ability to bring in a flat bed truck equipped to present an incredible music show coordinated by Sonic Unyon, CFMU, C101.5, and numerous other local musicians of every variety.

Add local artists and organizations sharing info and selling work, unique food offerings from area restaurants, a food drive by Hamilton Food Share and plenty of spontaneous activity - and you've got SUPERCRAWL.

To keep up to date on the latest Supercrawl news and information, visit www.supercrawl.ca, become a fan of the Supercrawl facebook group, or follow along on Twitter.

LIVE at THE FREEWAY

  • Date: Friday, October 09, 2009
  • Time: Doors open at 8:30
  • Location: The Freeway Cafe
  • Address: 333 King Street East (Google Maps)

LIVE AT THE FREEWAY

The music of h o b s o n ' s c h o i c e falls somewhere between alt-folk and chamber-jazz. Using the idiosyncratic line-up of vibraphone, trumpet, voice and acoustic guitar, this indie-folk quartet creates songs sometimes rich in their words and melody, other times in their colour and architecture. Engaging issues as diverse as climate change, love, millenial malaise, and urban sprawl, the group extends the tradition of folk songwriting through the careful construction of intricate arrangements. The result is a sound that eschews the obvious and consistently surprises.

K O R I P O P in a nutshell - a guitar, an alluring voice and serious songwriting.

also on the bill C h a d E v e r e t t-B r o w n

COVER is $5, please come and support live music in Hamilton

Melrose Movie Night: Maxed Out

  • Date: Friday, December 04, 2009
  • Time: 7PM
  • Location: Melrose United Church
  • Address: Homewood Ave and Locke St. (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Church Office
  • Email: melrose@melroseunited.ca

Please join us for a timely showing of this interesting and acclaimed documentary (made pre-global economic crisis!), which will serve as a cautionary tale to us all as we enter the Christmas season. All are welcome and invited to participate in a post-movie discussion with Spectator columnists Meredith MacLeod and Lisa Grace Marr.

********************************** Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit and the Era of Predatory Lenders (James Spurlock, 2006, 90 min.)

Friday, December 4, 2009 at 7:00pm. Melrose United Church Locke St. & Homewood Ave.

Suggested Donation $5 (Includes Complementary Fair-Trade Coffee) Supervised Children’s Movie: ages 3-12, $1 per child **********************************

Maxed Out takes viewers on a journey deep inside the American style of debt, where things seem fine as long as the minimum monthly payment arrives on time. With coverage that spans from small American towns all the way to the White House, the film shows how the modern financial industry really works, explains the true definition of "preferred customer" and tells us why the poor are getting poorer while the rich keep getting richer. Hilarious, shocking and incisive, Maxed Out paints a picture of a national nightmare which is all too real for most of us.

We are especially proud and pleased to announce that we will be joined for a post-movie discussion by Hamilton Spectator columnists Meredith MacLeod and Lisa Grace Marr -- writers of the "The Way We Spend" 13-week multimedia series. In part, the series has followed the financial makeover of four families with the help of local financial experts. During the discussion they will share some of their experiences and personal insights made in producing the series.

Bring your friends, neighbours and family for what promises to be an interesting evening, with a thought-provoking film and insightful discussion to follow.

"No Prorogue" Rally in Hamilton

  • Date: Saturday, January 23, 2010
  • Time: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Location: Gore Park
  • Address: Corner of King and James, Hamilton ON (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War
  • Email: hcsw@cogeco.ca

The Harper government has tried to prorogue Parliament in an effort to stop the inquiry into the Canadian involvement in torture in Afghanistan, as well as to distract Canadians with the spectacle of an increasingly-militarized Olympics.

Harper's recent actions mirror the efforts by his ministers to suppress free speech and discussion in Canada, including the banning of U.K. M.P. George Galloway from Canada, the cutting of funding to the Canadian Arab Federation, the defunding of any organizations that are perceived to disagree with the government's extreme positions, and the attempts to introduce new laws to further define what kind of speech is "acceptable."

Canadians won't stand for this, and we aren't! It's time to stop Harper from telling us what our Canadian values are. There will be a sizable demonstration of people in Hamilton from all walks of life who are fed up with Harper turning Canada into a Bush-style, fenced-in "free speech zone," while destroying its international reputation, and you are invited to make it happen.

Workers Without Bosses - Argentinian Speaking Tour

  • Date: Monday, January 25, 2010
  • Time: 7 pm
  • Location: Skydragon Centre
  • Address: 27 King William St. (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Common Cause Anarchist Organization
  • Email: commoncause@gmail.com

The response of the popular classes to the Argentine economic crisis of December 2001 and lessons for us in Canada - a Québec and Ontario speaking tour presented by the Union Communiste Libertaire (UCL) and Common Cause.

We are going through one of the worst economic crises in the history of capitalism and the answers provided by the state and its lackeys are illusory. In addition, faced with this impasse, our leaders are trying to shift the entire burden of the crisis to workers and their communities.

How can we respond differently to this economic crisis? Can we learn from the experiences of struggles that have happened elsewhere in the world?

To consider these issues, the UCL and Common Cause are organizing a Québec and Ontario speaking tour this winter on the response of the Argentine popular classes in the face of a serious economic crisis that shook the country in the late 2001.

From 18 January to 12 February, a militant from the anarchist organization Red Libertaria (Argentina) will travel to different cities in Quebec and Ontario to talk about this subject. He will discuss different forms of resistance developed by the Argentine people to counter the effects of the crisis such as retaking factories and creating self-managed cooperatives. He will also discuss the involvement of anarchists in these different struggles.

Strategies for Action and Resistance with author and activist Aric McBay

"Industrial civilization is incompatible with life. It is systematically destroying life on this planet, undercutting its very basis. This culture is, to put it bluntly, murdering the earth. Unless it’s stopped—whether we intentionally stop it or the natural world does, through ecological collapse or other means—it will kill every living being. We need to stop it." -preface to What We Leave Behind

Aric McBay (writer, activist, and small-scale organic farmer) argues that activists need to think and organize like a resistance movement. McBay explains how greenwashing derails effective action, and why industrial civilization is doomed (and why that's not a bad thing). He shares crucial strategic lessons that today's activists can learn from resistance movements of the past.

Join us for a discussion with Aric McBay, co-author of the recent "What We Leave Behind" with Derrick Jensen. All are welcome, free event.

FREE CPR/AED training for Ward 1 Residents

What: CPR/AED Training by Hamilton Emergency Services-EMS Date: Monday, February 1, 2010 Time: 6:30 to 8:30 pm Location: Melrose United Church, 86 Homewood Ave. at Locke, Hamilton

Ward 1 residents are invited to a FREE public training clinic for Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillators (AED's), to be presented by Hamilton Emergency Services - EMS with the generous support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.

CPR can be a vital link in saving the life of a loved one in cardiac arrest and anyone can learn it. The first 65 families who register will receive a free CPR AnytimeTM Family & FriendsTM kit (one kit per family, valued at $35) to take home and share with their families. These kits have been donated by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario and will be limited to one per family. Participants will also receive a CPR participation card upon completing the training.

In addition to becoming familiar with CPR, participants will also learn how to use Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). These defibrillators are the ones that you will have seen in many public buildings as part of the Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) program and they may also be a life-saver if used on someone in cardiac arrest.

According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 40,000 people in Canada experience cardiac arrest each year, the majority of which occur either at home or in public places. For every minute that passes without help, a person’s chance of surviving a cardiac arrest drops by seven to 10%. Learning CPR is easy and inexpensive and it could mean saving the life of a friend or family member. When CPR is combined with the prompt use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), the chance for survival can go up to 50% or more.

“The Heart and Stroke Foundation urges all Canadians to learn CPR. The more people trained, the greater the chance of keeping those that have suffered cardiac arrest alive until an ambulance arrives,” says Sue Turner, Community Mission Specialist, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. “You don’t need to be a doctor to save a life.”

“We hope as many people as possible can come out for this free CPR training clinic,” says Brent Browett, Deputy Chief/Director – EMS “Statistics indicate, and I know from my own experience on the job, that CPR and AEDs can make the difference between life and death. The more people in our community who have these life-saving skills, the more lives may be saved.”

The training session is limited to 65 families. Please RSVP by JANUARY 28, 2010 to Nikola at nikola.wojewoda-patti@hamilton.ca or 905-546-4528 and please include your name, address, phone number and email address.

Melrose Movie Night -- Man on Wire

                        Man on Wire

               (James Marsh, 2008, 94 min.)

              Friday, February 5, 2010 at 7:00pm.

                    Melrose United Church

On August 7th 1974, a young Frenchman named Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between New York's twin towers, then the worlds tallest buildings. After nearly an hour dancing on the wire, he was arrested, taken for psychological evaluation, and brought to jail before he was finally released. Following six and a half years of dreaming of the towers, Petit spent eight months in New York City planning the execution of the coup. Aided by a team of friends and accomplices, Petit was faced with numerous extraordinary challenges: he had to find a way to bypass the WTCs security; smuggle the heavy steel cable and rigging equipment into the towers; pass the wire between the two rooftops; anchor the wire and tension it to withstand the winds and the swaying of the buildings. The rigging was done by night in complete secrecy. At 7:15 AM, Philippe took his first step on the high wire 1,350 feet above the sidewalks of Manhattan.

James Marshs documentary brings Petits extraordinary adventure to life through the testimony of Philippe himself, and some of the co-conspirators who helped him create the unique and magnificent spectacle that became known as the artistic crime of the century.

Man on Wire won the 2009 Oscar for Best Documentary.

TAKING THE MYSTERY OUT OF KNITTING

  • Date: Sunday, February 21, 2010
  • Time: 2-5 p.m.
  • Location: Yoga With Ona's
  • Address: 74 Locke St. North (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Carol Duran
  • Email: cduran123456@gmail.com

TAKING THE MYSTERY OUT OF KNITTING

  • Do you want to knit but don't know how?
  • OK, you've knitted scarves for everyone in your family (including the dog) and want something a bit more challenging
  • Do you find pattern instructions and yarn selection daunting?
  • Do you want an excuse to sit in a comfy chair without moving for several hours at a time?

You are invited to a knitting workshop on Sunday, February 21st from 2 to 5 p.m. at Yoga With Ona's (74 Locke St N). Cost is $2.

Knitters at any level and non-knitters are all welcome. Non-knitters can learn how to cast on, the basic knit and purl stitches, and cast off. All participants can learn to:

  • read patterns (written and charts);
  • match the yarn to the pattern;
  • estimate the amount of yarn needed;
  • know the different properties of various fibres;
  • finish sweaters, assembly, etc.

More advanced knitters may wish to explore cable knitting (Aran), Fair Isle (multi-colour horizontal stripes) and intarsia (colour blocks).

I have knitted for many years. I am not an expert knitter but pretty competent. There will be lots of different yarns available for looking at, squeezing and learning about different fibres, and several examples of knitted items.

The only materials you need are a pair of straight knitting needles (I suggest between 4 mm and 5 mm) and a ball of light coloured plain smooth (untextured) knitting yarn (so that you can see the stitches clearly). The yarn can be wool or acrylic - just something that feels nice to you. Zellers carries a good range, and Harts also has a basic supply. If you have a project on the go, please feel free to bring it along.

If anyone has a particular topic they would like covered, please email me at cduran123456@gmail.com. Hope to see you on the 21st.

Screening - Geologic Journey: The Great Lakes

  • Date: Wednesday, February 24, 2010
  • Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
  • Location: Sky Dragon Cooperative
  • Address: 27 King William Street (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Robert Porter
  • Email: info@peacecafe.ca

Join us for a screening of Geologic Journey: The Great Lakes!

This film tells the story of the dramatic changes in the geologic history and landscape of this region, which has only recently taken the form of the five, great, interconnected lakes. In this episode audiences are shown the roots of a long vanished mountain range that once rivalled the Himalayas, explore the remains of a tropical salt-water sea, and trace the story of a sudden massive flood that drowned vast areas of land. From moraines, to tarn lakes, to the majestic Niagara Falls, the topography and geology of the Great Lakes region is unparalleled, strikingly beautiful and a place of wild contrasts.

It is truly “a wild, rocky place whose grandeur and mystery drew men to commune with the spirit of the sea…a place where man is and forever will be only a visitor.”

Refreshments will be available for purchase at the cafe.

Hamilton's Last Call: A look at urban renewal and and its impact on the poor

City revitalization efforts can often pose challenging issues for individuals in terms of finding and maintaining adequate housing. In response to the more recent examples of renewal efforts within the city, the Roomers and Borders Committee of Hamilton is hosting a night of film and discussion to look at what can happen when rooming houses become the territory over which tenants and developers compete for use of space.

The night will feature the screening of Last Call at the Gladstone Hotel, a documentary by Derreck Roemer and Neil Graham which follows the restoration of the building from “flophouse to hotspot”, and subsequent displacement of tenants following that transition.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion of rooming house tenants, community legal clinic lawyers, researchers on housing and homelessness, and the Rooming House Co-Ordinator of Hamilton to evaluate how these trends are taking shape in Hamilton.

Free! Everyone is welcome to attend.

Hosted by the Roomers and Boarders Committee of Hamilton.

CPR/AED Training for Ward 1 Residents

What: CPR/AED Training by Hamilton Emergency Services-EMS Date: Monday, March 8, 2010 Time: 6:30 to 8:30 pm Location: Melrose United Church, 86 Homewood Ave. at Locke, Hamilton

As a result of the overwhelming demand for this CPR/AED training session in Ward 1, Hamilton Emergency Services has kindly offered to do a second training session on March 8, 2010 at 6:30 p.m.

The people on the waiting list have been contacted and there are currently an additional 20 spots available.

If you are interested in attending, RSVP by MARCH 4, 2010 to Nikola at nikola.wojewoda-patti@hamilton.ca or 905-546-4528. Please include your name, address, phone number and email address and the number of people in your family.

CPR can be a vital link in saving the life of a loved one in cardiac arrest and anyone can learn it. In addition to becoming familiar with CPR, participants will also learn how to use Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). These defibrillators are the ones that you will have seen in many public buildings as part of the Public Access Defibrillator (PAD) program and they may also be a life-saver if used on someone in cardiac arrest.

According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 40,000 people in Canada experience cardiac arrest each year, the majority of which occur either at home or in public places. For every minute that passes without help, a person’s chance of surviving a cardiac arrest drops by seven to 10%. Learning CPR is easy and inexpensive and it could mean saving the life of a friend or family member. When CPR is combined with the prompt use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), the chance for survival can go up to 50% or more.

“The Heart and Stroke Foundation urges all Canadians to learn CPR. The more people trained, the greater the chance of keeping those that have suffered cardiac arrest alive until an ambulance arrives,” says Sue Turner, Community Mission Specialist, Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. “You don’t need to be a doctor to save a life.”

Hamilton Arts Awards Public Consultation

  • Date: Monday, March 08, 2010
  • Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Location: Auditorium, YWCA Hamilton - MacNab Branch
  • Address: 75 MacNab St S, Hamilton ON (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Bridget MacIntosh

  • Phone: 905-564-2424x. 4514

The City of Hamilton Culture Division and the Arts Advisory Commission invite you to a public consultation session to discuss the Hamilton Arts Awards.

The City of Hamilton Arts Awards are awarded to practicing artists in the Hamilton area in recognition of their significant contributions in a chosen discipline.

The Arts Awards have been presented annually since 1976 and are organized by the Culture Division with the assistance of the Arts Advisory Commission, a City Council appointed volunteer committee, whose mandate, in part, is to select and recommend the annual winners of the Hamilton Arts Awards.

The Culture Division received Council approval in spring 2009 to suspend the 2009 City of Hamilton Arts Awards program and reallocate the funds to undertake an Arts Awards Program Review.

The arts community in the city has grown and changed significantly in the last decade and this review will ensure that the Arts Awards are effective in promoting the arts and achievements of local artists. The Culture Division is proposing to present a renewed City of Hamilton Arts Awards Program in fall 2010.

After an open call for consultants to work on this review, Jeremy Freiburger of the Imperial Cotton Centre for the Arts, will lead the evening and will provide an opportunity for all interested citizens to share their thoughts on improving the Hamilton Arts Awards.

If you are unable to attend the consultation, a downloadable short questionnaire is available on our website (click "City of Hamilton Arts Awards Review") so you can still provide us with your thoughts on this important event.

Community meeting on Dofasco pollution emission levels

MINISTRY MEETING

THURSDAY, MAY 20TH, 2010 (this thursday)

6pm-9pm

ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION - EAST BRANCH 58

(1180 Barton Street East - Across from Center Mall)

This Communtiy meeting is where the Ministry of the Environment is set to unveil their plans to allow Dofasco to continue to emit cancer causing pollution into our air at levels higher that is permitted by law.

Our goals for the Meeting:

  • Ask the ministry direct questions as to why they will be granting this new standard to Dofasco given that the company failed to meet the standards within the current air quality reguation.

  • Show community support by presenting the postcards, letters, and drawings.

  • Show community concern by having residents share their stories and ask questions (Please note: everyone is welcome and encouraged to ask questions. That's one of the reasons that the Ministry is holding this meeting in the first place. If you have questions/concerns, we highly encourage you to speak up!)

  • Request to the Ministry in person that they take stronger measures to ensure that we have the cleanest and safest air possible. (The opportunity to make online comments to the Ministry will be explained at the meeting as well, and we will be sure to update everyone next week as to how this process works.)

Postcards Against the Excess of Cancer-Causing Emissions Deadline & Community meeting

Postcards Against the Excess of Cancer-Causing Emissions

ArcelorMittal-Dofasco, has recently acknowledged that they are unable to meet current standards set out in Regulation 419/05 (an air quality standard made by the Ministry of Environment to protect our community's health and environment) and proposed standards currently being considered for inclusion in the regulation. As such, they are currently applying for an "alternative standard", which will allow them to continue to emit certain pollutants at higher levels than the regulation permits. The alternative standard comes with a requirement for the company to implement an action plan to reduce their emissions. The action plan would see reductions in two key pollutants that we feel are not good enough. Cancer-causing benzo(a)pyrene, emitted from the company’s coke ovens, will only be reduced by 27% over five years and total suspended particulate matter will only be reduced by 4% under the action plan.

As a community, we feel we deserve the best air possible! Thus, the Hamilton Good Neighbour Campaign, which is an initiative of Environment Hamilton, has been asking individuals to sign postcards. These postcards provide a way for individuals, groups, and organizations across the city to send a strong message to Mr. Juergen Schachler, CEO of ArcelorMittal-Dofasco – the message that, when it comes to cancer-causing pollutants, a 27% reduction is not good enough!

To sign an online postcard, please visit: http://www.goodneighbourcampaign.ca/petition_hamilton The intent of these postcards is to present them to the company at a community meeting which is to be set-up by the Ministry of the Environment. Here, the Ministry will announce their decision as to whether or not to grant the alternative standard, and what it will entail if granted. The Ministry has given us word that the meeting will take place on Thursday, May 20th, 2010 (time and place TBD). Thus, save the date! We welcome and ask that everyone and anyone come to this meeting to show community support for stronger reductions!

To help relieve any intimidation or apprehension that may be had when attending a ministry meeting, the Good Neighbour Campaign will be holding 3 optional pre-meeting sessions. These sessions will provide a simplified and detailed explanation of the issue and answer any questions that may be had. They will aim to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that everyone feels ready and confident when attending the meeting. It will also be a time to work on any materials that are to be brought to the meeting.

Pre-Meeting Option 1: Thursday May 13th @ Labour Council (1130 Barton Street East, Second Floor) – 7:00pm

Pre-Meeting Option 2: Sunday May 16th @ Environment Hamilton Office (22 Wilson Street, Third Floor) – 2:00pm

Pre-Meeting Option 3: Monday May 17th @ Beach Rescue Unit (316 Beach Boulevard) – 7:30pm

MINISTRY’S COMMUNITY MEETING: THURSDAY MAY 20TH, 2010 (TIME/PLACE TBD) For more information concerning the meetings or the postcard campaign, please don’t hesitate to contact Katie Stiel at kstiel@environmenthamilton.org or 905-549-0900. Information can also be found at www.environmenthamilton.org

Andrea Horwath Dinner

  • Date: Saturday, June 05, 2010
  • Time: 6pm
  • Location: Steelworkers' Hall
  • Address: 1031 Barton Street East, Hamilton, Ontario (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Herb Shields
  • Email: herb.shields@gmail.com

(Hamilton-ON) – Ontario’s NDP leader, Andrea Horwath, will be one of many current and former NDP MPs and MPPs attending a dinner at the Steelworker’s Hall on June 5th. Several riding executives from the Hamilton-Niagara region are working together to host the event.

Doors open at 5pm and a buffet dinner is being served at 6. Guests will be treated to door prizes, silent auction, live auction and opportunities to have photos with Ms. Horwath. Tickets are 30 dollars and can be bought through local NDP riding associations (Hamilton Mountain; Hamilton Centre; Hamilton East-Stoney Creek; Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale; St. Catharines; Niagara Falls; Welland and; Niagara West-Glanbrook)

“This is a great opportunity to connect with fellow NDP supporters from right across this great region,” said Herb Shields, President of the ADFW provincial NDP riding association. “It has been heart-warming to see so many activists coming together from Niagara Falls to Flamborough to host this event.”

The Leader’s Dinner comes on the heels of some key regional economic and political changes the NDP are capitalizing on. The NDP have made significant gains by having six current MPs and MPPs coming from the Hamilton-Niagara region. The NDP have caught people’s attention in the region with their ideas on sustainable manufacturing and their opposition to the very unpopular HST tax grab. The NDP, by showing a united front across the region, are laying the groundwork to expand their seat count in upcoming provincial and federal elections.

For more information, please contact Herb Shields, President of the Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale Provincial NDP or e-mail herb.shields@gmail.com or visit http://www.ndpadfw.ca

HAMILTON RALLY AGAINST CUTS TO SOCIAL ASSISTANCE

STOP THE SPECIAL DIET CUT!

RAISE WELFARE / DISABILITY RATES NOW!

HAMILTON RALLY AGAINST CUTS TO SOCIAL ASSISTANCE

Thursday, June 17th

1pm Gore Park, Hamilton

On June 17th, we will rally in Hamilton against the Liberal Government's decision as part of their 2010 budget to CUT the Special Diet Allowance. The Special Diet Allowance is money that people on Welfare (OW) and Disability (ODSP) rely on in order to access healthy food and pay the rent. For hundreds of thousands in Ontario, the Special Diet is the only means left to try to survive on shamefully inadequate OW and ODSP rates.

In March, the Ontario Liberal Government, including local Hamilton-Mountain Liberal MPP Sophia Aggelonitis, put forth the most anti-poor budget since Harris in 1995. In cutting the Special Diet Allowance, the Liberals are only the third Government in Ontario's history to cut Social Assistance. It is a 200 million dollar cut to Social Assistance! This is a brutal move that will make hundreds of thousands of people hungry, sick, at risk of being evicted, or homeless.

In Hamilton this cut to Social Assistance will be devastating. Hamilton is a community that has faced huge job losses in this economic crisis and attacks on the Public Sector. Statistics estimate that 22% of Hamilton residents live below the Poverty Line, with official unemployment being well over 8%.

We are demanding that the Ontario Government reinstate the Special Diet immediately, and that they finally reverse the 1995 Harris cut by raising OW and ODSP rates at which people can live with health and dignity.

t'WestofTO Presents the First Annual Proud Hamilton Hunt Fundraiser

  • Date: Saturday, July 24, 2010
  • Time: Noon to 4 p.m. (Registration starts at 11a.m.)
  • Location: TBA
  • Contact: Janine
  • Email: proudhamilton@gmail.com

t’WestofTO is happy to announce the First Annual Proud Hamilton Hunt fundraiser! The fundraiser is in the form of an urban adventure that challenges the knowledge Hamiltonians have for their city. It consists of teams of two who solve clues about Hamilton, photograph themselves at the clue locations, and reach the finish line for a chance to win prizes provided by Hamilton businesses. It’s similar to the Amazing Race but without the challenges at each location. The first place team will receive two iPads that were generously donated by members of the Hamilton business community. Event details:

* Saturday, July 24, 2010
* Registration starts at 11:00am, the Hunt starts at noon, and prizes will be presented at 4 p.m.
* Start location TBA
* Tickets available at http://bit.ly/1stPHH

All proceeds will be donated to the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s Art Without Barriers Summer Camp. The camp program invites principals and/or teachers from high-needs neighbourhood schools to identify children who would most benefit from attending this special camp; the camp includes breakfast, lunch and snacks, a week of art-making with artist-educators, and a kit of art-making supplies to use at home. What can you do?

* Register for the event
* Tell your friends, family, neighbours, and coworkers, perhaps also make a blog post or tweet
* Donate to the AGH (on the registration page)
* Donate prizes or giveaways for the event (contact us)

Hope to see you at the Hunt!

WEST HARBOUR GARBAGE CRAWL

  • Date: Saturday, August 07, 2010
  • Time: 10 AM
  • Location: Former Rheem Factory at Caroline and Stuart
  • Contact: Matt Jelly
  • Email: info@mattjelly.com

We're caught up in quite a furious civic debate right now over the location of a Stadium. Regardless of what decision is made, we have a duty to start the long process of cleaning up the West Harbour. The Ministry of The Environment and the City can focus on the toxic sites- but as citizens, we can do our part to get rid of some of the litter and illegal dumping in the neighbourhood.

Please be safe- bring gloves, bags and a pair of durable shoes. Any children that come along should be under supervision by an adult.

The trash we collect will be deposited in a location close by for pickup by the City.

We'll also be making a collection of non-perishable food items for the Food Bank.

This Saturday, let's show the Ti-Cats what Hamiltonians are all about.

Rally for the West Harbour Stadium

  • Date: Saturday, August 07, 2010
  • Time: 3:30 pm
  • Location: Hess Village

Join us as we fight to bring the proposed Pan-Am Stadium to the West Harbour of DOWNTOWN Hamilton.

Rally begins at 3:30 on Tiger Cats Gameday, Saturday August 7th.

Special Guest Speakers including:

  • Mayor Fred Eisenberger

  • Councillor Bob Bratina

This is the best chance our generation is going to have to see the long neglected Waterfront, a hidden jewel of our city, finally be developed, and turned into a beautiful destination we can ALL enjoy !

The impact on the Waterfront, and the downtown, will be positive from both and economic, and quality of life perspective. The Waterfront site has the chance to be turned into one of the nicest civic waterfronts in North America, but it needs a Massive development plan, spurned on by a catalyst like the stadium project.

Currently a toxic mess left over from delapitated former industry has the waterfont area in a sad, even dangerous state. The waterfront will sit in this state for at least another generation without the MILLIONS of dollars needed to clean it up. Those millions should come from a PUBLICLY funded project like this.

Picture going to a Cats game, or perhaps an MLS game or even a festival at a stadium where you can enjoy the waterfront atmosphere before during and after the event! Let's draw people down to our waterfront, and our downtown.

If we drop the ball here, and don't seize this great opportunity, generations of Hamiltonians will lose out. A healthy downtown, with an exciting waterfront accessible for everyone, is a recipe for Civic prosperity. Ask the people of Pittsburgh (a former steeltown like Hamilton) how proud they are of their waterfront (and waterfront Stadium).

STAND UP HAMILTON... FIGHT FOR THE WEST HARBOUR LOCATION!!

SEE YOU AUGUST 7th in HESS VILLAGE!!!!!

Crystal Palace 150th Anniversary Celebration

Happy 150th Birthday Crystal Palace!

Calling all Hamilton history buffs...and anyone who likes a good party!

Sunday September 19, 2010 2 to 5 p.m. Victoria Park (at King St. W. and Locke St. N., west of downtown).

On September 20, 1860, Hamilton's very own Crystal Palace was opened by Queen Victoria's son Edward. The palace was a beautiful but fragile structure of wood and glass, modelled after London, England's 1851 building of the same name. Hamilton's palace stood for a scant 30 years--but during its day it played host to tens of thousands of area residents. Now it is simply a memory, kept alive through photographs and storytelling...and a big 150th birthday party this September 19.

Join us for music, dancing, games and reminiscences of Victoria Park's beginnings. The event will be emceed by Hamilton historian Bill Manson with readings by Hamilton authors Murray Aikman and John Terpstra. Hear stories about the grand opening of the Provincial Agricultural Fair, an event that attracted not only Prince Edward, but approximately 50,000 others to the park that fall day 150 years ago. Learn about the annual Great Central Fairs, the cannons and army barracks that set up shop on the grounds, the elaborate Confederation Day and Queen's Jubilee celebrations...and find out what the heck a mangel wurtzel is.

Free lemonade, birthday cake and sweet potato fries (the latter courtesy of Rolly Rocket's, currently operating out of the original tavern from the days of the Crystal Palace)!

Come early to browse the vendors and displays and enjoy a picnic on the grass. Bring a blanket or lawn chair. Victorian costumes encouraged, but not required.

Take transit (HSR stop on King at Strathcona), walk or ride your bike (racks available near the Vic Park community garden). Limited parking is available near the baseball diamond and the municipal lot on King Street, east of Locke.

Event proudly hosted by the Strathcona Community Council and City of Hamilton.

Come one...come all!

  • Time: 1:00 PM - 11:00 PM
  • Location: James North, between York Blvd and Barton St.
  • Address: James Street North, Hamilton Ontario (Google Maps)

SUPERCRAWL is a free afternoon and evening of art and music on James Street North in Hamilton, Ontario. This year's edition happens on Saturday, September 25th from 1 PM till 11 PM on James Street North from York Blvd/Wilson Street heading north to Barton Street.

Rally for Friends of Leash Free Warren Park

FRIENDS OF A LEASH – FREE WARREN PARK RALLY

Immediate Release

October 14, 2010- Dundas

Dundas is fast becoming known, for having the largest number of dogs per capita in Ontario.

Then why and how is a very few area residents causing this needed leash free park to close?

A rally to raise awareness and support against this unnecessary change to “what has been available to pet owners in our community for years,” will be held today at 4 p.m. in front of the Town Hall and again Saturday, October 16th @ 10 a.m.

Candidate Danya Scime says, "after 23 years of being a leash free park without documented incident, I find it appalling that in the instant of a motion so many people have been ignored.”

“My heart goes out to all of the dog lovers who did not even have the chance to voice their opinions nor come together and discuss a compromise."

-30-

Protest Rally #1 (Thursday, October 14th at 4:00 o'clock)

Some pet owners are disappointed others are angry at the way Russ Powers has handled the closing of Warren Park. This rally is too raise awareness of this issue.

My Priorities.

Pathways to a renewed and vibrant Hamilton:

Specific initiatives designed around these priorities will build up the economic vitality of all our community business districts, and provide new directions for relevant growth around the airport and on urban brownfields, including the waterfront.

To enable the transition of Hamilton into a sustainable eco-city, one of the key first-principles is: to eliminate all stress causing events among our residents that arise from direct or indirect interactions with city policies and processes; and remove all obstacles to economic prosperity, healthy living and the peaceful enjoyment of the city by its residents, visitors and guests.

A Hands-On Workshop on the Empowering, Transformative Power of Nonviolent Direct Action Positive changes in the world have often relied on nonviolent civil disobedience to achieve their goals, yet very few people have a practical understanding of the tactics and methods of this dynamic and powerful approach to social change. This day-long workshop will be a hands-on learning experience that participants will value as they think about ways to carry out their work in social and environmental issues - from workers' rights and global solidarity movements for justice, to climate change and a host of local issues, nonviolent civil disobedience broadens the scope of possibilities. Learn about your rights, how to deal with opponents, how to protect one another, examples of creative protests using nonviolence, the arrest experience, and the courts, where many nonviolent practitioners have found success in winning case law to broaden the scope of nonviolent resistance in Canada and beyond. This workshop is facilitated by Matthew Behrens of Homes Not Bombs, and the Campaign to Stop Secret Trials in Canada. Behrens has been described as "an inspiration" by legendary civil rights activist David Dellinger. Behrens has been arrested numerous times for bold and creative acts of nonviolent civil disobedience on issues of peace, social justice and the environment.

Hamilton Farmers' Market Genesis - Andrew Miller Land Deed History 1837-1856

  • Date: Wednesday, December 15, 2010
  • Time: 2:32
  • Location: Hamilton

Hamilton Farmers’Market Genesis - Andrew Miller Land Deed History 1837-1856

Who was Andrew Miller?

Andrew Miller was born in Rochester. Like many early settlers at the Head of the Lake, they came from the United States. They were United Empire Loyalists, proud of their British heritage and determined to retain it. He held strong Reform views and was arrested for involvement in the 1837 Rebellion - it is said he stored guns for the rebels in his tavern basement – and his eventual return to native Rochester, suggests that he never abandoned the republican politics of his birthplace. His nickname “Yankee” Miller was no accident. A tavern keeper, land speculator, presented himself as a land surveyor. He was a typical frontier businessman like others; he put his talents and energies to work in more than one field. Politics and business were a natural combination.

About the land;

The first mention of the market site occurs in the Crown land grants of 1801, when Farm Lot 15 in the Second Concession of Barton Township was deeded to a John Haskins or Askin. This large piece of land changed hands a few times until 1823 when Andrew Miller purchased a little over seven acres of it. This piece of land was a grove of apple trees. Triangular in shape and ran North on the west side of James Street. It was an addition to Miller’s already thriving business the Steamboat Hotel located next door. The Steamboat Hotel opened for business in 1819 on the northwest corner of King and James Streets. A prime strategic spot, the site of today’s main entrance to Lloyd D. Jackson Square.

The seven acres of land was only one of a number of town lots that passed through Andrew Miller’s hands in the1820s and 1830s. Located right at the centre of town, and with the town already developing north-ward from Main Street to Burlington Bay buying the orchard made excellent business sense.

In 1832 the local economy was booming. Immigration quickly increased the town’s population from 200 to more than 2,000 residents. Andrew Miller was elected to the Board of Police, the town’s first local government. The town became an Emporium of Trade. A market was needed.

One of the first actions taken by the Board of Police after incorporation in 1833 was to conduct a poll of the town’s taxpayers to canvas the opinion on the best site for a market. The majority of the electors preferred Gore Park; others opted for a location further north on James Street, especially those farmers coming into town along York Street from the west. The preferences of the farmers and electors were only part of the equation. Taking into account the commercial and political rivalries among the town’s leading citizens the result was several months of haggling among the town’s main landowners, but in 1837 the town finally acquired the land needed. Other offers had been considered, but were rejected. The terms of the agreement with Miller and his wife were negotiated several times before the Board agreed to pay each 5 shillings in consideration of their rights to the property. The Millers ceded only a fraction of the lot they had acquired in 1823, a little over half an acre.

The foundation for the market therefore was laid through the generosity and fore though of one of the town’s citizens, who was able to realize the advantages to the municipality of a central buying place where producers and consumers could meet for their mutual benefit. Thus on April 14, 1837, Andrew Miller deeded to the town a small triangular piece of property at York and James Streets. It was a small piece of land, but ample for its purpose in those days.

Miller’s indenture assigning the land to the town was accepted by the President of Police of the town of Hamilton a few days later, but it was registered almost a year later on the 16th.day of February , 1838, as transaction No. 643. The parcel of land had a frontage of about 150 feet on James Street and extended westward towards Mac Nab Street.

The reservations, limitations and conditions set forth in this memorial of bargain and sale were: “That the said party do adopt and use the said parcel of land as a public market ground, and as soon as an Act of the Provincial Parliament has been obtained for the erection of the market on the said ground, proceed to build and finish on this ground a market house of stone or brick, measuring not less than 40 by 60 feet on the ground floor and not less than two storey’s.”

According to the deed the land contained two rods, ten perches, and its boundaries were described as being; from a post situated at James Street, West side, and York Street, North Side, North 18 degrees, 30 minutes to a length of two chains and 25 links, thence 71 degrees 30 minutes westerly to a length of five chains to the North side of York Street, and East on the North side of York Street to the starting point, the property being part of lot 15, concession 2, in the township of Barton.

Without any obstacle to the town’s plans to develop a new market council went ahead and arranged a loan from a George Harvey within two months of Miller’s deed and a Market House was built. Hamilton’s first major building contractor, William Hardy, won the prize of 7.10 pounds for the design of the new Market House. A new wooden structure not of stone or brick, contrary to Miller’s whishes, but quite pretentious for those days, was built. It was completed in 1839 and in June the council adopted a set of regulations governing market commerce, effective July 1, 1839. The rules were amended and published by the town clerk the following September. The Market House for 19 years sufficed the Hamilton public for market purposes.

The transaction was in fact was a great deal more complicated. It suggests a strong element of political intrigue behind the apparently simple facts.

When Miller signed the indenture deeding the land to the town there was an outstanding writ against his property, which was “placed in the hands of a William Munson Jarvis Esq., then Sheriff of the District of Gore (area were most people wanted the market to be built), to be executed in due form of law” on February 9, 1837. No mention of this writ arose during Miller’s negotiations with the town, nor did it arise during the Board’s deliberations. Why not? In fact, the writ was allowed to lie dormant for more than two years, even though the “due form of law” called for its execution within weeks. On March 2, 1839, Sheriff Jarvis finally after having duly advertised said lands according to law did expose and offer said lands and tenements for sale at public auction at the Court House of the Town of Hamilton to the highest bidder.

The “lands and tenements” were sold for the paltry sum of three (3) pounds. The winning bid was entered by Judge Miles O’Reilly, chief justice of the Gore District Court and President of the Board of Police. Does that seem to you has total transparence and above board?

Ten years later (1849), Miles and Jane O’Reilly signed a new indenture transferring the land bought at that auction to the town. Both the Sheriff’s sale and the indenture involved the same triangular piece of ground from Andrew Miller’s apple orchard.

In the deposition of facts in O’Reilly’s deed of 1849, he explained that Miller’s original transfer of the land was “inoperative and void” because the town lacked the “power and authority in the law in the said Corporation to purchase, take or hold lands for a second market in the said Town of Hamilton.” Moreover, argued O’Reilly, Miller’s lands had already been seized by the Sheriff and were no longer in his possession to transfer. Moving then to the heart of the matter, O’Reilly declared:

Before the passing of the statute, among other things, and to enable the said Corporation to take and old lands for a second market in the said Town of Hamilton…the said Miles O’Reilly by the advice and at the request of the members of the said Corporation, and in order to secure to the said Corporation the use and benefit of said lands, and as soon as might be the title to the same, bought said lands at Sheriff’s sale, and the Corporation now styled the City of Hamilton are desirous that said lands should be conveyed to them in due form.

In short, O’Reilly simply acted for the good of the town by circumventing Miller’s Legal problems and the further legal difficulty caused by the lack of enabling legislation.

The evidence suggests that Miller was victimized for his politics and his nationality. It seems that O’Reilly’s played both sides against the middle. On one hand, as chief justice of the district court and President of the Board of Police, he was a pillar of the local establishment. But he also dabbled in Reform politics to the extent of defending a dozen accused rebels at the treason trial in Hamilton in 1838.

It is clear that the lack of enabling legislation presented no serious obstacle to the town’s plans to develop a new market due to the fact that council went ahead with the construction of the Market House immediately after Miller deed the land.

In 1839 to appease Tory anger and anti-American sentiment in the wake of the Rebellion Andrew Miller was offered up as a sacrificial goat. He didn’t suffer irreparable harm. He did endure considerable economic losses in 1839-40, but his business was sufficiently resilient to allow him to move the Steamboat Hotel to a more prosperous location at the corner of MacNab and York Streets. Miller evidently did not lack nerve. The new tavern was called the “American Hotel”. He was reelected to council in 1847 and in 1853 he cast the deciding vote which gave the mayoralty to William Kerr. For reasons unknown by 1856 Miller had returned to Rochester but he continued to own substantial blocks of property in Hamilton.

In 1856 business in Hamilton had outgrown the original Market space, city council was determined to expand the market grounds. The natural direction for growth was north and west, towards MacNab and Merrick. Seven individuals owned this land and one of them was Andrew Miller so the city council sent a delegation to Rochester to arrange to acquire his Merrick Street property. Miller demanded and obtained the highest price, 125 pounds a foot, more than three times as much as Thomas Morton asked for an adjoining property.

This transaction produced another lengthy legal document. Once again, Miller stipulated conditions. The most interesting clause in this deed has caused considerable debate down the years. Miller reiterated that the land in his original deed, the apple orchard, “shall remain an open square and forever remain such for the public benefit, to be used as an appurtenance to the said new Market and for Market purposes forever according to the purport and intent of the original grant.”

The Market Committee reported to council that “Miller’s offer is advantageous to the City as it leaves space for an open Gore and the City can proudly boast of having two open Gores which are not to be found in any other City in the Upper or Lower Province.” The deal was completed a year later. The City bought six (6) parcels of land for 19,915 pounds, British currency was used in those days, or $100,000.00 – of which Miller received about a quarter. The market ground was increased to 25 times its original size.

The properties were secured as follows; From James G. Davis and Jonathan Davis, on October 6; for 3,250 pounds; from David Dewy, for 3,650 pounds; from Thomas Morton, for 1,600 pounds, from John Bradley, for 1,250 pounds; from Jasper T. Gilkson, for 3,915 pounds; from Andrew Miller another piece of land, for 5,000 pounds; and from Allanson Blackmer, for 1,250 pounds.

In view of the necessity for increased Market accommodations caused by the rapid growth in population and wealth prior to the crash of 1857 a new Market building was proposed and finally erected in the early 1860’s. This Victorian urban complex would last as the heart of the City for almost a century.

The Market was vital to the City’s life.

In a deed dated July 31, 1874 and registered on August 1, 1874, George W. Miller, surviving executor under the will of the late Andrew Miller, for valuable consideration, released the City from all the claims under the limitations and reservations as set forth in the memorial of bargain and sale. This is 18 years after the sale. Who did this action benefited? Certainly not the interests of the Market! Was it legal? Did George have the legal ability as an executor to do that. Considering all that has been talked about in the past apparently not. It’s time to find out!

March 27, 1969 – The way was cleared for Hamilton to pluck its 132-year-old downtown market out of the path of progress. The private bills committee at Queen’s Park gave Hamilton council the right to shift the market to make way for civic square development.

Historical reflection: The Patriots was the name given after 1826 to the PARTI CANADIEN and to the popular movement that contributed to the REBELLIONS OF 1837-38 in Lower Canada. The primarily francophone party, led mainly by members of the liberal professions and small-scale merchants, was widely supported by farmers, day-laborers and craftsmen.

The Rebellions of 1837 took place in both Upper and Lower Canada. In LOWER CANADA the rebellion was in large part an expression of a resurgent FRENCH CANADIAN NATIONALISM. The French Canadian majority constituted the overwhelming majority in the locally elected Assembly established by the Canada or CONSTITUTIONAL ACT, 1791. By comparison the UPPER CANADA (Southern Ontario) rebellion was a more limited affair. There was growing discontent with the network of officials, erroneously described as the FAMILY COMPACT, who dominated the administration of the government and controlled the distribution of patronage throughout the province. Popular opposition developed over land-granting policies, particularly the setting aside of large blocks of land as CLERGY RESERVES, the education policies of the government and its economic priorities, and the general favoritism shown to the Church of England and its supporters and to recent emigrants from Britain. This discontent was strongest among the American-born settlers who had migrated prior to the War of 1812 - the so-called late loyalists - and their descendants, nonconformist in their religious views and somewhat republican in their political sympathies, who were denied political rights during the struggle over the ALIEN QUESTION in the 1820s. Although the settlers of American origin constituted a declining proportion of the population as British immigrants flooded into Upper Canada in the early 1830s, the oligarchic form of government which had been established by the CONSTITUTIONAL ACT of 1791 came increasingly under attack, and the nascent Reform Party won control of the Assembly in 1828 and again in 1834

Upper Canada officially existed from 26 December 1791 to 10 February 1841 and generally comprised present-day Southern Ontario. The geopolitical prefix “upper” in its name reflected its geographic position higher up the river basin or closer to the headwaters of the St. Lawrence River than that of Lower Canada or present day Quebec to the northeast. Upper Canada included all of modern-day southern Ontario and all those areas of northern Ontario in the pays d’en haul haut which had formed part of New France, essentially the watersheds of the Ottawa River, Lake Huron, and Lake Superior. It did not include any lands within the watershed of Hudson Bay.

This is not an extensive study on the land deals of Andrew Miller, but it will help many to better understand what took place and possibly inspire some to search further and help the Market to receive the consideration it deserves.

Rally to Support a Community Stadium & Velodrome on Hamilton's West Harbour

  • Date: Wednesday, January 12, 2011
  • Time: 6.30pm
  • Location: Hamilton City Hall
  • Address: 71 Main St. W. (Google Maps)

As recently clarified by Ian Troop, CEO of Toronto 2015, the City of Hamilton does not need the Ti-Cats as a legacy tenant to secure funding for a stadium. We can build a 5,000-6,500 community stadium (expandable to 15,000 temporary seats for the PanAm Games)with a legacy use for amateur community sport events and possibly a minor league soccer franchise.

We already have the land assembled in the West Harbour, the studies are complete, and the site has been confirmed by council 7 times.

The stadium can be scaleable to support a possible later decision by the Ti-Cats to play there.

Even better is that the savings of constructing a smaller stadium can be put towards building a permanent Velodrome/community athletics centre that will attract elite cycling athletes and elite cycling events to our city.

All we need to make this happen is for a councillor to put forward a motion in the next council meeting on Wednesday, January 12th (7pm start) that Hamilton submit a bid for a community stadium, and for council to pass this motion.

Let's rally at City Hall ahead of the Council Meeting at 6.30pm and make our wishes known to council, and then attend the meeting at 7pm!

Music, Friends, and Football

Hosted by Save Ivor Wynne Stadium dot com

It has been a long 8 months, but after studying such sites as the West Harbor, East Mountain, the CP Railyard on Aberdeen, and even Aldershot outside of our city limits, we find ourselves back to where football has lived in Hamilton for 60 years; Ivor Wynne Stadium.

On Monday, our council will be presented with and discuss, the plan to rebuild and upgrade Ivor Wynne. The deadline to submit Hamilton’s stadium proposal for the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games is February 1st, with 75 Balsam Avenue North as the focus of our primary site for the long term home of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and one of the host venues for the 2015 games.

Monday night is a celebration, hosted by friends and family of the Save Ivor Wynne Stadium project. Not a celebration of victory, but a celebration of what this process has taught us, the friendships that have been made, and how our city came together as a whole, to fight for something they believed (and didn’t believe), in.

Ivor Wynne, as re-iterated after one of my past delegations, has become the fallback site. Not preferred by anyone, not the Tiger-Cats, not city council, probably not even HostCo, but for many fans and residents who hold a special place in their hearts for Ivor Wynne Stadium, this is what they had hoped for all along.

It’s time to celebrate never giving up. After eight months of research and desperate pleas, trying to encourage the powers that be to talk about the possibilities that exist amongst the grounds that line Balsam Avenue North, it’s time celebrate that council and the Tiger-Cats are now talking about Ivor Wynne.

That’s all we were really looking for from day one and next week, we may perhaps be given a gift that we never dreamed possible. For the placement of that infinity symbol after 1930 to. For many more volumes to come, in the Ivor Wynne Stadium scrapbook.


DETAILS:

Special GIC Meeting: 1pm in council chambers

Dinner: Shortly after the council meeting concludes, we are going to head over to the Honest Lawyer for some eats. Please do join us.

Music and Drinks: Our band, The Workshop, will be jammin’ at the Skydragon from approximately 7pm on. We will have some spare instruments, or bring your own, as you are more than welcome to join us on stage throughout the night.

All times are approximate and are subject to change depending on when council adjourns for the evening. Check my Twitter Account for updates the day of the GIC.


We hope to see you there. All are welcome.

  • Contact: Laurie Hardwick

USW Local 1005 and its 900 members and 9000 pensioners are waging a battle on behalf of ALL of us. Foreign-owned companies think we’re just body parts to be thrown away at the end of our work lives. U.S. Steel locked out it workers Nov. 7. It is trying to drive pensioners into the dirt by deindexing their pensions! AND they want defined benefit plans closed to new hires and replaced with defined contribution plans that are nothing more than glorified savings accounts. The OFL, CLC, USW Local 1005 and Hamilton and District Labour Council are calling for a massive province-wide mobilization to stop U.S. Steel and other foreign-owned companies from wrecking our communities and stealing our futures. Let’s get going!

HAMILTON DAY OF ACTION AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY

TO ENDORSE THIS DEMONSTRATION PLEASE CONTACT: 905againstpolicebrutality@gmail.com

DAY OF ACTION AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY APRIL 30TH 2011! ...JUSTICE 4 ANDREAS! 1PM @ CITY HALL

Within the last year there has been 3 shootings resulting in 2 deaths at the hands of police officers in the Hamilton/Halton region. There have been numerous instances of police abuse reported in headline news. It is likely that many more accounts of brutality at the hands of Hamilton police have never been heard. We all know someone who has been targeted or affected by the harassment, intimidation and violence that have become the common practice of an unaccountable police force. These cops enjoy impunity while the complaints and allegations against them are met with outright hostility or pushed through a bureaucratic process of little consequence to law enforcement. The steadily growing list of high profile disgraces of our own police department illustrates this.

Sergeant Kevin Dhinsa is accused of sexual and personal harassment by 12 female co?workers , only to return to policing in 2008. All charges were dropped after the chief of police dragged his feet through the courts which resulted in the case being thrown out due to a technicality.

Since its inception in May 2010 the Hamilton Police ACTION Team routinely intimidates and harasses people living, working and hanging out downtown. Their mandate of criminalizing the young, the poor, and the homeless is made clear in last year’s report which revealed that the vast majority of their work consisted of “street checks”, id checks and ticketing for minor offences.

The July 2010 G20 summit held in Toronto saw thousands of police assembled from across the country to execute the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. Nearly 100 Hamilton police officers were involved in the strategic crackdown on the right to political dissent and protest.

On May 4th 2010, 58 year old Myanmar refugee Po La Hay was severely beaten in his own home after police raided mistaken address. Hay, who speaks very little English, was punched and kicked after collapsing to the ground. Hamilton police did not call SIU following the incident. Following the investigation only one cop, Ryan Tocher, was charged. Tocher was also under investigation for “discreditable conduct and unlawful or unnecessary exercise of authority” at the time of the incident. He is still working for Hamilton Police Services.

On February 2nd, 2011, 19 year old Andreas Chinnery was shot and killed inside his apartment by 3 police responding to a noise complaint. Andreas was not armed and the officers were let into the apartment. To date the Hamilton Police have refused to release virtually any information regarding the shooting.

We as a community cannot let this behaviour continue unopposed in our city! The SIU has time and time again proven itself to be an impotent organization, incapable of keeping police brutality, assault, harassment and murder in check. The vast majority of cops investigated by the SIU (police investigating police) are cleared of all charges. The time has come for us as victims of the police to begin providing our own solutions. This is why we are calling for a rally and demonstration on Saturday April 30th in Hamilton.

We demand an open investigation into the murder of Andreas Chinnery! We will no longer accept police brutality in our city! We will stand together across our communities in defence of those targeted by the police!

"Protest Barrick" Speaking Tour in Hamilton

"There is a global resistance to Canadian mining."

Barrick Gold is the world's largest gold mining company, founded and chaired by Peter Munk. With a former prime minister on their board and former executive sitting on the board of the Canadian Pension Plan, Barrick enjoys government funding and diplomatic support.

Barrick Gold takes advantage of inadequate and poorly enforced regulatory controls to rob Indigenous Peoples and communities of their land and livelihoods, destroying sensitive ecosystems, supporting brutal military and security operations, and suing those who dare to report on it. Impacted communities are coming to Canada to confront Barrick, sharing their own undeniable perspectives and shedding light on corporate impunity.

Come out to support them!

On Monday May 9th, come out to the Skydragon Centre to hear from front-line activists from Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, and Tanzania, as well as solidarity activists from Canada, about Barrick Golds impact on communities around the world and what this global resistance looks like.

END:CIV Hamilton Premiere with director Franklin Lopéz

If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests and contaminated the food supply, would you resist? If creatures from outer space made the water so poisonous you wouldn't dream of drinking it, would you try to stop them? If monsters released toxic chemicals that caused cancer in the people you love, would you fight back?

These aren't idle questions. It's happening now – except there are no aliens. The culture that's cradled us since birth is a killer.

Join director Franklin Lopez on the Hamilton stop of his North American tour. A critical documentary inspired by the work of Derrick Jensen. $5-15 admission, no one turned away for lack of funds.

Hamilton Anarchist Bookfair 2011

We are pleased to announce the 4th annual Hamilton Anarchist Bookfair. Please spread the word! The bookfair will be a one day event with anti-capitalist, anarchist and social justice oriented publishers, vendors and organizations from across the region gathering to share literature and ideas. A series of workshops through ...out the day are also planned, details will be available shortly.

#

We need to talk. We need to talk about our past: the HSR strike of 1906, the steelworkers’ strike of ’46, the fight for the Red Hill Valley, the fact that this city is on stolen Native land. We need to talk about what we are facing today: attacks on workers and the poor, gentrification, the total destruction of our landbase, and the same deception and oppression from those in power we’ve always seen. Finally, let’s talk about our future. Let’s talk about a world without classes, bosses, borders or boredom. Let’s talk about freedom, and how we’re gonna get there.

On June 4th, join us in the historic Worker’s Arts and Heritage Centre for the 4th annual Hamilton Anarchist Bookfair. There will be books and literature, workshops and discussions, free food and childcare. This venue is wheelchair accessible, please feel free to contact us about accessibility concerns: hamiltonbookfair@gmail.com We’ll see you there! Love,

The Hamilton Anarchist Bookfair Crew

Free Tire Pressure Clinic

  • Date: Saturday, August 06, 2011
  • Time: 10:00am - 2:00pm
  • Location: Canadian Tire Centre Mall
  • Address: 1089 Barton St. East, Hamilton (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Paul Barrett
  • Email: air@greenventure.ca
  • Phone: 905-540-8787 ext 113

On Saturdays beginning August 6, 2011 Green Venture will hold a series of free Tire Pressure Clinics at selected Canadian Tire store parking lots in Hamilton. Drivers will learn how to properly check their vehicle’s tire pressure, and receive a free Green Venture EcoDriver kit which includes: Tire Pressure Gauge, Fuel Consumption Calculator, EcoDriver Tips and Brochure, Tire Tread Indicator.

“A vehicle with just one tire under-inflated by 8 psi uses 4% more fuel, and the life expectancy of the tire decreases by 15,000km,” says Paul Barrett from Green Venture, which delivers the EcoDriver program in Hamilton. “While about half of drivers know they should check tire pressures, most don’t know how to do it properly. By investing 5 minutes at a Tire Pressure Clinic, drivers learn how easy it is to check and maintain their vehicle’s tire pressures.”

The Rubber Association of Canada states that “tire under-inflation is the most common cause of tire failure and can lead to accidents” and that “under-inflated tires cause Canadians to waste an estimated 643 million litres of fuel each year”.

Seminar ‘Is there a willingness to pay for island sustainability’

  • Date: Wednesday, September 21, 2011
  • Time: 11.00 am - 12.00 pm
  • Location: McMaster Innovation Park
  • Address: 175 Longwood Road South (Google Maps)
  • Contact: L. Benedetti
  • Email: contact@inweh.unu.edu
  • Phone: +1 (905) 667-5511

This seminar is part of the seminar series ' Managing Coasts in a Changing World' organized by the Coastal Ecosystems programme of UNU-INWEH.

Speaker: Dr. Rachel Dodds, a dynamic, self starter with over 20 years international experience across a wide spectrum of the tourism industry. Rachel has worked with hotels, large and small tour operators, ecotourism planners, sustainable tourism management and marketing projects, international development banks, landscape and park planning firms, governments, NGO's, marketing organizations and hospitality and tourism attractions.

Rachel is currently the Director of Sustaining Tourism - a boutique consulting firm. She is also an Associate Professor at Ryerson University in Canada where she joined the Ted Rogers School of Tourism & Hospitality Management in 2006.

Introduction: A significant number of island destinations are dependent on tourism for their livelihood. Of the 31 countries in the world with more than 20% of their GDP generated by tourism, 27 are islands states, therefore it is imperative to manage these destinations for long-term viability and sustainability. This type of tourism is predominantly nature based, yet the impacts of such tourism on the natural environment and resources are intensive and often result in a significant environmental footprint. Numerous studies have found the need for more sustainable forms of tourism. This talk reviews the concept of sustainable coastal tourism and discusses issues on the island of Koh Phi Phi, Thailand after the Tsunami of 2004, and examines whether there is a willingness to pay or a more sustainable tourism destination.

PILGRIMAGE TO FREEDOM CARAVAN

  • Date: Sunday, October 02, 2011
  • Time: 12:30 to 5pm
  • Location: Simcoe - Brantford - Hamilton - Toronto
  • Contact: Justicia for Migrant Workers
  • Email: pilgrimage2freedom@gmail.com

Join the caravan!

Hamilton meeting spot: 12:30pm, Workers Arts and Heritage Centre, 51 Stuart Street, Hamilton

Welcome the Pilgrimage to Freedom caravan as migrant workers and allies arrive in Toronto.

Meet at 3:00pm Ontario Ministry of Labour 400 University Ave., Toronto (just south of Dundas St. W and St. Patrick subway station)

March to the Simcoe Park Workers' Monument (Front St. and Simcoe St., beside the CBC building) for closing celebration featuring Rosina Kazi from LAL, Amai Kuda and other performers from 3:30 - 5pm

** If you cannot join the march from the Ministry of Labour, consider waiting at the park and be part of the reception for the caravan!

Last year, over 150 migrant workers and their allies made history by marching over 50 Km, an equivalent of 12 hours, from Leamington to Windsor, Ontario demanding justice, respect and dignity for the hundreds of thousands employed under the auspices of Canada's Temporary Foreign Worker Programs. Over the last year, thousands of people have heard the testimonies and the stories that led to organizing the march. Demands for permanent residency and citizenship status, an end to repatriations and deportations, labour law reform, equal access to social entitlements and an end to the coercive role of recruiters and contractors has inspired many others about the realities faced by migrant workers in Canada.

Migrant workers and members of Justicia for Migrant Workers (J4MW) have continued to organize in rural Ontario and are once again demanding that the chains of indentureship in Canada be broken! This year the pilgrimage continues as a form of a caravan across rural Ontario. Migrant workers and their allies will be recreating the stops of the underground railroad to pay tribute to the important struggles of resistance that we base our struggle upon. On September 4th, 2011 we visited St. Catharines, Virgil, NOTL, and Niagara Falls during the first stage of the Pilgrimage to Freedom and on September 25, 2011, workers and allies traveled from Windsor to Dresden, Chatham and Leamington.

J4MW is requesting the support of community, religious, labour and allied organizations to join us for the last action.

*RIDES: Being a grassroots organization, we have very limited funding and it will go to paying for the buses of the tour and transporting farmworkers, so we cannot offer a bus leaving Toronto. We will do our best to coordinate rides so people can attend from out of town. Please let us know if you can offer a ride to someone from Toronto to Simcoe, Brantford or Hamilton.

Background Information

More than 20, 000 migrant farm workers from Thailand, Mexico, Guatemala, the Philippines, and the Caribbean arrive in Canada to work in our fields, orchards and greenhouses every year. Many workers pay thousands of dollars in fees to recruiters to be able to work in Canada, sometimes for jobs that do not even exist. Once they arrive, many workers face dangerous working conditions, sub-standard housing and employment standards and human rights violations. As farm workers and migrants, they have little recourse to assert their human and labour rights and are constantly faced with the threat of deportation if they voice their concerns.

Justicia for Migrant Workers is an award winning volunteer-run collective that strives to promote the rights of migrant farm workers by creating spaces for workers to lead their own movement and articulate their own voices in a country that makes renders them invisible.

  • Address: French's farm just west of Highway 124 at Conover, Ontario,north of the 20th Sideroad. (Google Maps)
  • Phone: 416 537 9977

80 of Canada's best chefs cook up a storm to help Stop The MegaQuarry.

On Sunday, October 16th 80 chefs from Nunavut to Saskatchewan to Nova Scotia will descend on a small Ontario farming community south of Collingwood, ON to help put a stop to a proposed mega quarry project that would obliterate thousands of acres of high yield,Class 1 farmland.

The prospect of turning so much prime cropland close tothe GTA into stone has got food safety, sustainability and sovereigntyadvocates on the rocks.

The event, known as FOODSTOCK, promises to live up to its '60s era inspiration, with an anticipated crowd of 20,000 people in attendance. Celebrated chef Michael Stadtländer-whose nearby Eigensinn Farm andHaisai Restaurant have become internationally celebrated gourmet destinations-is heading up the event together with the Canadian Chef'sCongress.

FOODSTOCK is a pay-what-you-can event featuring gourmet dishes dprepared by 80 of Canada's top chefs, including Jamie Kennedy and Canoe Restaurant's Andrew Walsh. There will also be music by the likes of Blue Rodeo's Jim Cuddy, Sarah Harmer and a host of others, as well as scientist headliners speaking in opposition to the proposed mega quarry.

The mega quarry proposal in question was put forward this spring by TheHighland Companies, a Canadian corporation created by Boston-basedhedge fund the Baupost Group.

The proposed quarry would: · Be Canada's largest open pit quarry at 2,316 acres · Require extraction of 600 million litres of water per day FOREVER,affecting the watersheds of southern Ontario rivers
· Obliterate thousands of acres of high yield, Class 1 farmland madeup of Honeywood Silt Loam-a specialty soil now producing many kinds of vegetables in addition to approximately 50% of the GTA market for potatoes.

See nomegaquarry.ca or NDACT.com for more details.

For complete details or to learn more about Michael Stadtländer, please visit canadianchefscongress.com.

Admission: Pay what you can to support the cost of fighting the Quarry! PLEASE PURCHASE ONE TICKET PER PERSON, THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING. TICKETS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE AT THE EVENT, THE DAY OF THE EVENT.

Rain or shine!

Join us as we continue the revitalization of this wonderful community asset! If you've been discouraged by the building's appearance and the recent vandalism, now's your chance to help turn things around.

If the weather is nice, we'll be doing some exterior painting and prep work and reclaiming the flower beds. If it's not so nice, there's interior painting, cleaning, and we could use some handy people with step ladders and cordless drills to help us take down some of the old blinds.

The city is providing the paint and some equipment, but if you have gloves, scrapers, brushes, rollers, roller pans, and garden tools you could bring, that would be great.

Come after hockey! We'll be there.

In the wake of Argentina’s dramatic collapse in 2001, Latin America’s most prosperous middle class finds itself in a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment.In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. All they want is to re-start the silent machines.

But this simple act-the take-has the power to turn the globalization debate on its head.

Director/producer Avi Lewis (CBC’s counterSpin) and writer/producer and renowned author Naomi Klein ( No Logo) take viewers inside the lives of ordinary visionaries, as they reclaim their work, their dignity and their democracy.

Monday, Nov 21st – 6pm Followed by a casual discussion.

The Politics of Policymaking - Another Drop Panel Event

  • Phone: 9056675775

Effective policy development is a complex process. This is particularly true in the case of water in which multiple water uses compete for priority. Within this context, evidence-based decision-making is essential to informed and appropriate water-related policy development. Incorporation of the most current research is an integral part of this process. However, researchers often struggle to have their findings considered in policy development. With various actors often involved in the process, who decides what factors should be considered? Furthermore, with political considerations often guiding policy, how can researchers translate their findings into policy? Bridging the gap between science and policy is essential in effective formulation.

The event is free and refreshments will be served. All are welcome. Please RSVP to contact@inweh.unu.edu

Persistent contaminants in marine mammals: trends and patterns in a changing world

  • Date: Thursday, November 24, 2011
  • Time: 4 pm - 5 pm
  • Location: McMaster Innovation Park
  • Address: 175 Longwood Road South, Hamilton, ON (Google Maps)

Title: Persistent contaminants in marine mammals: trends and patterns in a changing world

Series: Managing Coasts in a Changing World seminar series

Speaker: Dr. Chris Metcalfe

Free public lecture, all welcome!

Marine mammals accumulate high concentrations of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) because of their high fat content and because many species of cetaceans and pinnipeds occupy the very top of the marine food chain. In some areas of the world, such as in northern Canada, POPs that accumulate in marine mammals can impact human health as a result of the consumption of “country foods” by Indigenous peoples. Monitoring of marine mammals provides a window into global trends in POPs concentrations that are occurring as a result of changes in climate, the use patterns of industrial and agri-chemicals, and reduced biodiversity in the oceans. In this presentation, Dr. Metcalfe will review his research experience with contaminants in marine mammals from various locations around the world, as well as data that have been generated by other researchers working in this field. This presentation will be of interest to those who want to know more about toxic chemicals in the environment, as well as contaminant trends and the potential impacts of POPs in marine mammals.

A free community event! Once a year we open our funeral home to anyone in the community who may benefit by joining us for a time of reflection and celebration as we enter into the Christmas season (often the first time after people in attendance have lost someone significant). We are thrilled to showcase the live talents of International Tenor Mitch Seekins and the evening will conclude with refreshments in our lounge. Pre-registration is necessary by calling 905-549-2417 and letting us know how many people will be coming. Also, we use this as our opportunity to ask for help with our Christmas Assistance Train which is set up... Each year we collect as many new toys, household items and non-perishable food items as we can and donate everything to the Wesely Urban Ministries' "No Charge Christmas Store" so our neighbours in need can have the dignity of selecting the gifts they want to share at no cost to them.

Collier's Popular Press book launch

  • Date: Wednesday, November 30, 2011
  • Time: 6:30pm
  • Location: Bryan Prince Bookseller
  • Address: 1060 King Street West, Hamilton (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Kerry Cranston
  • Email: staff@princebooks.net
  • Phone: (905) 528-4508

Please join us for the launch of "Collier's Popular Press" by Hamilton cartoonist, David Collier.

David Collier is perhaps the premier living embodiment of this tradition of observational cartooning. He’s very conscious of this older tradition and has in particular been shaped by the work of J.R. Williams. Like Williams, Collier draws a roughhewn, gnarly line that wins us with its homespun honesty. Some of the drawings in this book, particular the landscape illustrations Collier did for the Globe and Mail, are simply marvelous as stand-alone works of art. What distinguishes these drawings is the quality of Collier’s eye, his ability to notice details which are expertly recreated by his textured cross-hatching.

This book collects Canadian cartoonist David Collier’s work published over the last 30 years in various publications such as: The National Post, The Nerve, The Globe and Mail, The Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Geist magazine, The Comics Journal, and many more. With new introductions by the artist himself and plenty of added ephemera, this is the volume that Collier fans have been waiting for.

Free Admission. Everyone Welcome.

Screening of: Capitalism is the Crisis

  • Date: Monday, December 05, 2011
  • Time: 6:30pm
  • Location: Sky Dragon
  • Address: 27 King William St - 2nd floor (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Sunil
  • Email: sunil@peacecafe.ca

All are welcome to a free screening of “Capitalism is he Crisis”, a new Canadian documentary that is especially relevant considering the rise of the Occupy movement globally.

The 2008 “financial crisis” in the United States was a systemic fraud in which the wealthy finance capitalists stole trillions of public dollars. No one was jailed for this crime, the largest theft of public money in history. Instead, the rich forced working people across the globe to pay for their “crisis” through punitive “austerity” programs that gutted public services and repealed workers’ rights.

This documentary explains the nature of capitalist crisis, visits the protests against austerity measures, and recommends revolutionary paths for the future.

Special attention is devoted to the crisis in Greece, the 2010 G20 Summit protest in Toronto, Canada, and the remarkable surge of solidarity in Madison, Wisconsin.

A discussion follows the film

Screening of: Life and Debt

  • Date: Monday, December 19, 2011
  • Time: 7pm
  • Location: Sky Dragon
  • Address: 27 King William St - 2nd floor (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Sunil
  • Email: sunil@peacecafe.ca

Life and Debt is a 2001 American documentary film directed by Stephanie Black. It examines the economic and social situation in Jamaica, and specifically the impact thereon of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank's globalization policies. Its starting point is the award-winning non-fiction essay A Small Place by Jamaica Kincaid.

These loans were conditional on structural adjustment policies, which required Jamaica to enact harsh economic reforms, including trade liberalization, privatization, and deregulation. However, the reforms were unsuccessful and left the country with $4.6 billion dollars in debt. The film blames the World Bank and the IMF for causing this situation.

The film features a number of interviews with former Jamaican Prime Minister Michael Manley in which he critiques the system of International Financial Institution loans.

He is particularly critical of required structural adjustments as an attack on the sovereignty of many former colonial nations and suggests the system is akin to imperialism or neocolonialism.

Similar claims have been made popular by former Chief Economist of the World Bank (and Nobel Prize in Economics winner) Joseph Stiglitz. (source: wikipedia)

Topic: PKD - Genetics and Family Planning Options

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder that can be passed from generation to generation through either a dominant, or a recessive gene. What does this mean? What is the difference? How does each of these impact our children? What choices do we have in building our families? Who can help us better understand these choices, and act on the ones that we feel are best for us?

Get a better understanding of the genetics of PKD; learn about the new options that are available to families, such as pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD); and hear the personal story of one family that has been through it. Decisions on family planning are highly personal. All options will be discussed in a supportive and non-judgmental way. Ethical considerations will be discussed as well.

Screening of: No Logo

  • Date: Monday, January 23, 2012

In the age of the brand, logos are everywhere. But why do some of the world’s best-known brands find themselves on the wrong end of the spray paint can — the targets of anti-corporate campaigns by activists and protesters?

No Logo, based on the best-selling book by Canadian journalist and activist Naomi Klein, reveals the reasons behind the backlash against the increasing economic and cultural reach of multinational companies. Analyzing how brands like Nike,The Gap, and Tommy Hilfiger became revered symbols worldwide, Klein argues that globalization is a process whereby corporations discovered that profits lay not in making products (outsourced to low-wage workers in developing countries), but in creating branded identities people adopt in their lifestyles.

Using hundreds of media examples, No Logo shows how the commercial takeover of public space, destruction of consumer choice, and replacement of real jobs with temporary work – the dynamics of corporate globalization – impact everyone, everywhere. It also draws attention to the democratic resistance arising globally to challenge the hegemony of brands.

Bill C-373 is a comprehensive piece of legislation that will enable Canada to develop a new architecture for peace-building, both domestically and internationally. It will significantly affect government’s approach to conflict issues and shape a new paradigm for waging peace in our world.

Familys and Friends Against Police Terror!

FAMILIES AND FRIENDS AGAINST POLICE TERROR! STOP POLICE BRUTALITY!

On February 4th, Hamilton Copwatch and the families and friends of those healing from the trauma of police terror and brutality are calling on you to take to the streets in solidarity with the message ...that THIS ENDS NOW! In response to the events of December 13th, wherein which Pamela Markland and her six kids (8 to 21) were terrorised by a paramilitary-style police invasion of their home as part of the Toronto Police-led ‘Project Marvel’ raids in our city, we say NO MORE!

The Toronto Police who entered our city streets and broke down the doors of Hamilton residents at the crack of dawn in December were acting within the jurisdiction of the Hamilton Police Services. In the case of Pamela’s family, heavily armed police forcefully poured into their home and handcuffed Pamela and her children at gun point. Police tossed a stun grenade at Pamela and her 9 year old autistic son Isaiah, leaving burns on the mother’s foot. Officers produced a search warrant but we say their violent actions were completely unwarranted!

While Toronto and Hamilton Police allege that there was sufficient evidence to connect Pamela and her kids to the activities of a youth gang in Toronto, no charges or arrests were made following the raid. The family has been uprooted from their home and forced to seek refuge in shelters as a result of the terror inflicted upon them by so-called “public servants.” We say that the police are the ones guilty of violence!

Join Pamela and her kids as they lead us into the streets to send a clear and direct message to the Hamilton Police that we will not tolerate police abuse. Pamela’s family and supporters are demanding an apology, an explanation, and an end to police abuse across this city now.

Come out to support this message and help deliver a signed list of demands to Hamilton Police Services on February 4th 12:30pm. Rally at City Hall (71 Main St. W.).

OUR UNITY IS OUR STRENGTH IN THE STRUGGLE TO END POLICE ABUSE!

Stadium Precinct Planning Sub Committee Meeting

  • Date: Thursday, April 26, 2012
  • Time: 7-9pm
  • Location: Prince of Whales Jr Elementary School
  • Address: 77 Melrose Ave N (Google Maps)

This week, the Stadium Precinct Planning Committee will be hosting a public meeting at Prince of Wales School.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about this important development in our neighbourhood and to be part of the process at an early stage. All are welcome. You must register for this event. For more details including contact information to register your spot, visit the South Sherman Hub page.

As well, see this article by David Premi and Paul Shaker, principals with RethinkRenewal in TheSpec asking what we are getting for our $60M investment in the stadium, discussing how we can better engage citizens and some ideas regarding major developments the authors would like to see ready in time for 2015.

For me personally, with all the negativity surrounding the games, its encouraging to see that some people still believe we can turn this around and create something special for our community. We still have an opportunity to make a lasting and valuable legacy for our city.

Hamilton May Day Parade & Block Party 2012

Join us on May 1st @ 2pm in Beasley Park to celebrate May Day in Hamilton. We’re going to kick off the afternoon with a roaming dance party through the downtown core in order to reclaim the streets from the monotonous, capitalist grind. Led by the sweet sounds of the... Hammersauce Noise Brigade, we will dance our way through the streets of Hamilton to remind this city that a system based on money and land-deeds isn’t nearly as funky as the world we envision.

After busting our moves in the streets, we will bring the Parade back to Beasley Park where a Block Party will be in full swing, complete with a free barbeque, musical performances, circus activities and games. This is going to be a fun, family-friendly afternoon in the sun, so bring your appetite and leave your wallet at home!

In solidarity, -M1 Hamilton, Occupied Turtle Island

Mayfair - Community Event and Fundraiser for Westdale Children's School

  • Date: Saturday, May 26, 2012
  • Time: 11am-3pm
  • Location: Aviary Gardens in Westdale

The Westdale Children's School 16th Annual Mayfair

Saturday, May 26, 2012 11am-3pm At the Aviary Gardens in Westdale

Come and enjoy the whimsy and charm of a traditional children's celebration! Music, games, crafts, food and more....

The Westdale Children's School (WCS) is a caring, safe and inspiring environment for learning, socializing and playing.

Our pressure-free gentle approach is inspired by Waldorf Early Childhood Education and is noticeably different than that of other preschool programs. We focus on imaginative free play, healthy snacks and plenty of time outdoors, including weekly nature hikes. These activities support children's natural development and help prepare them for academics.

WCS offers a morning and afternoon Kindergarten curriculum for children 3 to 6 years. We also offer two Parent and Child programs: "Babes in Arms" for infants up to 12 months of age, and a second program for children between 12 months and 4 years. WCS offers one-week Summer Camp programs for 3 to 6 year olds and 7 to 10 year olds. More information and registration details are available on the website.

Founded in 1996, the Westdale Children's School is licensed under the Day Nurseries Act and is a non-profit, registered charitable organization as well as a developing member of the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America. The school gratefully acknowledges a grant received from the Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2007.

On s'en Calisse!: a discussion on the quebec (student) strike

  • Date: Thursday, June 14, 2012
  • Time: 7pm
  • Location: Room 311/313, McMaster University Student Centre
  • Address: 1280 Main St W (Google Maps)

As the historic mobilization in Quebec continues to expand, many of us in Ontario are struggling to find accurate and interesting information about the movement there, so that we can effectively provide solidarity and also advise our own struggles. On Thursday June 14, at 7pm, in room 311/313 of the McMaster Student Centre, we will be joined by an ally from Montreal to discuss the history of student strikes in Quebec over the last thirty years and to reflect on the context and developments within the current strike. Our guest has been deeply involved in the growing revolt in Quebec and can offer us a very "on the ground" perspective to cut through the spin being generated by mainstream media.

This is a free event, but we are requesting that anyone who can makes a $10 donation to support the legal fees of radicals in Quebec facing charges from the mobilizations. Please forward and Facebook this widely.

This venue is wheelchair accessible.

Stop the Flows - No Line 9 Reversal

  • Date: Thursday, September 27, 2012
  • Time: 6:30 pm
  • Location: First Unitarian Church
  • Address: 170 Dundurn St. S. (Google Maps)

Across the continent, communities are struggling to stop the flow of Tar Sands oil through their lands. Opposition to the Keystone XL and Northern Gateway pipelines is denying the Tar Sands a route to the south or west, keeping the oil landlocked in Alberta. Now, Enbridge is seeking to reverse their Line 9 pipeline through Southern Ontario to create an eastern path for it.

Tar Sands oil is the dirtiest oil in the world, and the extraction of it is fuelling catastrophic climate change while poisoning the communities around it. We all have an interest in keeping this oil in the ground and away from our homes.

Join us for a forum and discussion about Enbridge's reversal of the Line 9 oil pipeline. Speakers will describe: - The growing continental movement to stop the flow of Tar Sands oil - Enbridge's refusal to consult with the Haudenosaunee and other First Nations as treaty law requires - The threat to our local watershed, especially the Beverly Swamp, a provincially-significant wetland at the headwaters of the Spencer Creek.

This is a free event, though donations to cover costs will be accepted. The First Unitarian Church is accessible for mobility devices. This is a kid friendly event, and childcare will be available. Light food and drink provided.

Planning Kirkendall - first meeting

Planning Kirkendall: First in a series of potlucks and community conversations that will help us make key decisions about what we want for our neighbourhood.

Kirkendall is beginning to face a number of key development/redevelopment decisions, including a proposed seven-story development on Locke Street. It has been difficult to address these kinds of land use questions without an overarching, broadly supported plan that lists our main priorities for the neighbourhood. (The current Kirkendall Secondary Plan was developed in 1982.)

Planning Kirkendall is part of “Know Your Neighbourhood, Grow Your Neighbourhood,” a project that will help Kirkendall residents connect, take stock, and plan for the future. The project has been led by volunteers, including Kirkendall residents Pamela Hubbard, Chandra Rice, Marion Emo, Matt Leighninger, Jennifer Anne Barrett, and Cathy Pead. The first event of this project was a successful “Sowing the Seeds” gathering held last June to see if there is interest in moving forward. Everyone at the session expressed that it’s a good idea.

What will this process produce? In 3-4 meetings, over the next several months, Know and Grow Your Neighbourhood - Planning Kirkendall will help us assess information about the neighbourhood, move further on the themes that emerged at the “Sowing the Seeds” gathering, surface other priorities and concerns, and produce a plan that can help guide decision-making by neighbourhood residents, local officials, city planners, and developers. Councillor Brian McHattie and other local stakeholders will be attending the meeting next week.

If you’re interested in attending and want to help us pull it together, please contact Matt Leighninger at mattleighninger@earthlink.net.

Thomas King on "The Inconvenient Indian"

  • Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2012
  • Time: 7:00pm
  • Location: McMaster Medical Centre, Ewart Angus Centre, Room 1A1
  • Address: 1280 Main Street West (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Kerry
  • Email: events@princebooks.net
  • Phone: 905-528-4508

Novelist, broadcaster and First Nations activist, Thomas King will be in Hamilton to discuss his latest book "The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America".

"The Inconvenient Indian" is at once a “history” and the complete subversion of a history—in short, a critical and personal meditation that the remarkable Thomas King has conducted over the past 50 years about what it means to be “Indian” in North America.

Rich with dark and light, pain and magic, this book distills the insights gleaned from that meditation, weaving the curiously circular tale of the relationship between non-Natives and Natives in the centuries since the two first encountered each other. In the process, King refashions old stories about historical events and figures, takes a sideways look at film and pop culture, relates his own complex experiences with activism, and articulates a deep and revolutionary understanding of the cumulative effects of ever-shifting laws and treaties on Native peoples and lands.

Please join us for this free, public lecture.

Presented by Bryan Prince Bookseller, OPIRG McMaster, McMaster First Nations Student Association and Random House of Canada.

Nicole Foss lives on a farm near Ottawa, is trained as a biologist and in environmental law, She consults on energy and financial issues, blogging at www.theautomaticearth.org. She has a great interest in health and nutrition.

Her talk will address food production in the future and the health timebomb we've created in the era of industrial foodstuffs. We've built a farming system with critical dependencies on fossil fuels, large scale mono-cropping and genetically engineered seed. She will focus on the impacts of energy climate and money. Her down-to-earth talk will help you grasp what limits to growth really means. Almost no one talks about the bigger picture, so people struggle to understand. She helps you identify your options to prepare for challenging times

Nicole Foss, BSc, LLM, has lectured in 15 countries and given hundreds of speeches and workshops over the past three years. Come to Copetown to learn what you can about your food, your farm and your family.

After a long struggle this summer to form a union, workers at 25 Main St. W. are out in the cold. Wilson Blanchard, the location’s property manager, has brought in Everclean Janitorial Service, a contractor that has refused to retain the current employees. With just a few weeks to go before the Holidays, you have to wonder if Wilson Blanchard is the Grinch.

At least six workers, all immigrant women including one who is currently off on maternity leave, will lose their jobs. The workers, some of whom have worked at 25 Main St. W. for more than five years, formed a union earlier this year to win fairness at work and respect.

Another Drop Seminar: Addressing Water quantity and quality concerns in the Peace-Athabasca Delta, northern Alberta, from perspectives of the past

  • Date: Tuesday, January 08, 2013
  • Time: 7:00 PM
  • Location: McMaster Innovation Park, Conference Room C and D
  • Address: 175 Longwood Road South, Hamilton, Ontario (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Kate Cave
  • Email: contact.inweh@unu.edu
  • Phone: 905-667-5511

Speaker: Dr. Brent Wolfe, Associate Professor, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, Wilfrid Laurier University

Please RSVP to contact.inweh@unu.edu

Effective stewardship of floodplain landscapes requires knowledge of the relative roles of natural processes and upstream human activities on environmental flows. In floodplain landscapes, hydroecological conditions that develop from potentially competing drivers tend to be expressed at spatial and temporal scales that are often inadequately captured by existing monitoring datasets. Consequently, perceived cause – effect relations may be misunderstood, conflict can escalate among stakeholders, and effectiveness of surveillance systems, policies and governance may be impaired. This is the context for the Peace-Athabasca Delta, an internationally-recognized water-rich floodplain landscape located in northern Alberta that has been subject to multiple stressors. Based on over a decade of research, this seminar will relay key findings from lake sediment records that have fostered an unparalleled window into the past to address water quantity and quality concerns of today.

Aerotropolis Community Update Meeting

  • Date: Wednesday, January 09, 2013

  • Location: City Hall
  • Address: 71 Main Street West, Hamilton ON (Google Maps)

This meeting, organized by the Hamilton Civic League, Environment Hamilton, Hamiltonians for Progressive Development and the Hamilton chapter of the Council of Canadians, will provide an update on the Airport Employment Growth District (AEGD) plan that is going to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) for a three-week hearing starting January 14, 2013.

Hamiltonians for Progressive Development appealed the City's plan to rezone and service thousands of acres of farmland around Hamilton International Airport to attract new industrial development, arguing that the plan goes against the Province's intensification mandate, will contribute to suburban sprawl and is unnecessary with all of the unused and under-used industrial land already inside the urban boundary.

Kitestring creative branding studio, Innovation Factory, Fullerton Media, and Mohawk College have teamed up to host a screening of The Startup Kids.

After watching the trailer for this film, we knew it had to be shown here in Hamilton and saw the opportunity to bring together the best and brightest of Hamilton's entrepreneur and startup community.

The Startup Kids is a documentary about young web entrepreneurs in the U.S. and Europe. It contains interviews with the founders of Vimeo, SoundCloud, Kiip, InDinero, Dropbox, Foodspotting and many others who talk about how they started their company and their lives as an entrepreneur.

The movie is made by two Icelandic entrepreneurs, Vala Halldorsdottir and Sesselja Vilhjalmsdottir, who founded their first company shortly after the economic collapse of Iceland and wanted to motivate other young people to become entrepreneurs.

The film will be screened at the beautiful McIntyre Performing Arts Centre at Mohawk College.

Polycystic Kidney Disease: A Personal Journey (Free Talk)

  • Date: Sunday, January 20, 2013
  • Time: From 2pm to 4pm
  • Location: St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, Juravinski Tower, Classroom B
  • Address: 50 Charlton Avenue East (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Hamilton Chapter Coordinator
  • Email: hamiltonchapter@endpkd.ca
  • Phone: 1-877-410-1741

Polycystic Kidney Disease patient, Lori, believes living a healthy life is important and by telling her personal story she hopes other chronic kidney disease patients will learn some helpful hints for living well.

Lori is one of the estimated 66,000 Canadians affected by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), a hereditary disorder characterized by fluid-filled cysts on the kidneys, and she is sharing her personal journey on January 20 to encourage others living with chronic kidney disease to live the best life they can.

"At the age of 19, I was shocked to be diagnosed with an inherited kidney disease," said Lori, a PKD Foundation of Canada member. "Because I was adopted, I'd been unaware of my genetic medical history."

IT'S A GIRL documentary on Gendercide screening

‘Take a breath, and you sample the world.’ So reads a National Geographic Jan 2013 article on microbes. Many airborne microbes travel enormous distances, eventually circling the globe. Similarly human activity, in any part of the globe affects us all. ‘It’s A Girl,’ the documentary film, is about the estimated 200 million girls who are missing in the world due to gendercide. Shot on location in India and China, It’s a Girl exposes the truth about this war against girls and laments the lack of any effective measure against this injustice. The Divine Light Awakening Society understands there is truly an answer to restoring balance.

If you stand for Gender Equality, Human Rights, Non-Violence, and are against Gendercide, join us on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 1441 Barton St E, Hamilton from 11.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. for a viewing of this documentary. There will also be a presentation on Santulan – our Gender Equality Program. Lunch will be served. For more information call 905-545-9178 or email divinelightawakeningsociety@gmail.com.

Speaker: Jeff Robertson, Executive Director of the PKD Foundation of Canada

We hope you can join us as Jeff Robertson explains what living donation is, along with how to have conversations with people about the process. You will also learn how to help raise overall awareness of the need for living kidney donation; including tips on how to share your personal story with friends, family and the media.

Before taking on the role of Executive Director in 2008, Jeff was actively involved with the PKD Foundation of Canada as both Chapter and Walk Coordinator for Toronto. He continues to be the volunteer Toronto Walk Coordinator and remains actively involved in the Toronto Chapter on a daily basis.

Having been raised in a family afflicted with PKD (both his mother and grandmother have this disease), he learned at a very young age, the importance of self-advocacy and sharing one's PKD journey with friends, family and the media in order to generate as much attention as possible for PKD and organ donation awareness.

This presentation is part of an ongoing series of two-hour informational support meetings hosted by the Hamilton Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada. They are open to the public, free of charge and the venue is wheelchair accessible. Local street parking (free) and hospital parking (payment required) is available.

The international day was proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1966 when the Assembly called upon the international community to redouble its efforts to eliminate all forms of racial discrimination. Canada was one of the first countries to support the March 21 initiative, launching its first annual campaign against racial discrimination in 1989.

Through activism and scholarship over many decades, Angela Davis has been deeply involved in movements for social justice around the world. Her work as an educator – both at the university level and in the larger public sphere – has always emphasized the importance of building communities of struggle for economic, racial, and gender justice.

Having helped to popularize the notion of a “prison industrial complex,” she now urges her audiences to think seriously about the future possibility of a world without prisons and to help forge a 21st century abolitionist movement.

This free public lecture will be followed by a book signing by Angela Davis.

Tactical Urbanism Design Charerette - presentations

HBSA presents Mike Lydon from The Street Plans Collaborative in New York City (http://streetplans.org) in a design workshop for Hamilton about TACTICAL URBANISM. Tactical Urbanism projects are typically small scale or short term, strategic projects designed to test or temporarily deploy urban design strategies and ideas.

Increasingly, innovative cities and citizens are turning to temporary or short term interventions that test bigger ideas about urban life, street life and how we build Cities.

Tactical Urbanism takes a deliberate activist approach to instigate change. The projects are typically short term projects offering local solutions to local challenges. Tactical Urbanism proposes low-risk interventions with the potential for a high reward, that builds “social capital” between neighbours, communities, businesses and with the City.

The Hamilton Burlington Society of Architects is organizing a Design Charrette to explore the possibilities of Tactical Urbanism in Hamilton. Earlier in the day, Mike Lydon will provide an introduction and guidance to a group of design professionals, business leaders, politicians, community leaders, activists, and interested citizens. Several locations in Hamilton will be selected and teams will be provided with an afternoon to imagine what is possible on that site. At 4pm we will be presenting the results of the charrette. All are welcome!

The Polycystic Liver: Webinar & Talk

  • Time: 2pm-4pm
  • Location: St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, Juravinski Tower, Classroom B
  • Address: 50 Charlton Avenue East (Google Maps)

  • Email: hamiltonchapter@endpkd.ca

A polycystic liver can be a part of a Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) diagnosis. This free webinar and talk will help you understand what causes the polycystic liver, its effects, and how to manage the disease.

The Hamilton Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada is pleased to present a webinar by Dr. Marie Hogan of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, followed by a talk by two-time liver transplant recipient Jan Robertson, Co-Founder of The PKD Foundation of Canada.

“Polycystic Kidney Disease can affect multiple organs in a PKD patient and many individuals in the PKD Community suffer from liver involvement specifically,” Jeff Robertson, Executive Director of The PKD Foundation of Canada, said.

The two-hour informational meeting on May 26, to be held in Classroom B in the Juravinski Tower at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, will also feature PKD patient Jan Robertson, who will share her personal experience of living with a polycystic liver and the processes involved in her two life-saving liver transplants.

“Mrs. Robertson has been a leading voice in the fight against Polycystic Kidney Disease for well over 30 years and it is our pleasure to welcome her as a guest speaker at this Hamilton Chapter meeting,” Jeff Robertson added.

Jan was diagnosed with PKD in 1980, when little was known about this disease and she has been a leading advocate for the PKD community ever since.

This presentation is part of an ongoing series of two-hour informational support meetings presented by the Hamilton Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada. They are open to the public, free of charge and the venue is wheelchair accessible. Local street parking (free) and hospital parking (payment required) is available.

The Hamilton Chapter of The PKD Foundation of Canada launched in July 2011. More information is available on the website.

Open Streets Hamilton

  • Date: Sunday, June 23, 2013
  • Time: 10am-5pm
  • Location: James Street North, Hamilton
  • Contact: Events
  • Email: events@openstreetshamilton.ca
  • Phone: 905-481-0809

Open Streets Hamilton is back on Sunday, June 23 2013! James Street North 10am-5pm

We hope you’re coming to Open Streets Hamilton: James Street North!

Apply now for your spot and tell us what you are bringing to the street!

WHO – Open Streets Hamilton is a community-based partnership dedicated to promoting active, healthy and inclusive lifestyles by temporarily transforming streets into a shared space for everyone to experience. Our motto is “Make the Streets Your Playground”. Sunday, June 23rd, 2013, will mark our 7th car-free Sunday in Hamilton since June 2010!

WHAT – Open Streets Hamilton is part of a network of events taking place all over the world to re-purpose streets for fun, active, and creative activities! Open Streets Hamilton is looking for local programming for our June event related to:

Active Transportation (Walking, Cycling, Rollerblading, Skateboarding, etc…)
Healthy Communities (Nutrition, Active Living, Health & Wellness, Sports & Recreation, etc…)
Sustainable Economy (Local Sustainable Businesses & Organizations:  Food, Services, Arts, Local Products)
Any combination of the above!

WHERE – We will be hosting our event again on James Street North, in Hamilton, Ontario (final route details TBA)

WHEN – Sunday, June 23rd, 2013 (10am* to 5pm – *road closure starts at 9am, set up is between 9am and 10am)

WHY – By connecting communities through active transportation, you open up opportunities for collaboration, support, sharing, and communication that we sometimes miss when we drive through in our car. Taking a day to come out into the street together to celebrate the health of your community builds connections that last all year long! Click here to read some of the things people have told us about why they come to Open Streets Hamilton every year!

HOW – By closing the road to motorized vehicles, Open Streets Hamilton “opens” the street to pedestrians, cyclists and all forms of active transportation (including wheelchairs) to walk, ride or roll down James Street North! Along the route, we work with local organizations to provide fun, active, healthy, family-based activities to engage passers-by as they travel down the middle of the street!

JOIN US! Visit our website to join our June 23rd, 2013 event! A team of volunteers will review your application and
