I believe that religious community is an important part of the Walden
Community and that it is important you hear of the current issues at the
I am not sure what you may or may not be aware of regarding the Catholic
churches of St. Pius X and St. Christopher’s, so I will provide a brief
history. A few years ago a new priest arrived following the retirement
of the priest. The parishioners were not thrilled, but also understood
that it was time for change. The priest that arrived did not take time
to get to know his parish community and has effectively forced a lot of
people to attend churches in other areas of the city, to change their
faith, or to stop attending altogether. Approximately two years ago St.
Christopher’s in Whitefish was closed by this same priest, but the
congregation rallied together and proved that they could support
themselves, kept the church open and completed several renovations.
Their reward? The priest is back to serve them.
I write to you at this time because two weeks ago St. Pius X was closed
indefinitely due to a mould problem. The Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie and
the parish priest continue to claim that the church won’t close, but the
people are perceiving the situation quite differently and if the priest
can arrange it he wants to hold the 9:30 Lively mass at St. Stanislaus
in Copper Cliff. The Catholic community in Lively has already been
divided and it continues to be divided further. I am a young
professional looking to move back to this community (I’ve been away at
school for approximately 7 years), but without my church community there
is less to hold me here. It’s an inconvenience to have to leave my
community to have my spiritual needs fulfilled. The Catholic community
wants to exist, but the priest is making it very difficult even though
he claims he has been forced to make the decisions he has made.
I am not sure what you may be able to do, but I felt that it was
important to bring this to your attention given the direct affect on
Walden. At this time it is important for Catholics in our community to
return to the churches to physically show that they value having
Catholic churches in Lively and Whitefish. The time is now or never.

Alternative Level of Care (ALC) Crisis - News - Action Request from
Friendly to Seniors Board
For Your Information:
The full version of Article in Northern Life today below - similar
letter in Star yesterday by fellow Frindely To Seniors (FTS) board
member John Gaul... Both CEO of Hospital and LHIN deny Memorial suitable
for ALC patients currently at Regional site . Who is pulling their
strings? Our new Regional Site is not fully functional and ALC patients
are being denied best treatment - Common sense solution is available -
Public Awareness and Action needed - any ideas welcome.

Member, Mayor and Council’s Seniors’ Advisory Panel
Special Report – Sudbury Regional Hospital Not Friendly
to Seniors - December 2010
The Importance of keeping the Memorial Hospital ALC
Transitional Care Unit Open.
community is judged by how it treats its less fortunate including the
sick and the elderly then we have failed the Alternative Level of Care (ALC)
patients who are now and will continue to occupy beds at the Sudbury
only do they not receive care they would expect in a regular nursing
home, they are now to be denied access to the Transitional Care Unit at
the Memorial Site when it is scheduled to close in March of 2011. This
Unit currently provides much of the same care available in a regular
nursing home and was set up for this purpose until appropriate
accommodation should become available. This will occur for the
approximately 130 ALC patients at this facility when they will move to
new nursing home beds in Chelmsford and other locations.
however, does not address the needs of the approximately 50 to 60 ALC
patients at the Sudbury Regional Site who are located throughout the
hospital taking up beds that would be otherwise available for regular
patient care and has resulted in overcrowding in the emergency
department plus frequent cancellations and delays in surgeries or other
medical procedures. Medical and support staff have expressed their
frustration on numerous occasions as the result of this untenable
situation. Hospital officials had originally requested that the
Memorial site remain open for 3 years – it is now scheduled to close
after less than a year of operation. It is reported that discharge
times for an ALC patient at the Regional site are in excess of 180 days,
while the provincial average is just over 40 days.
chair of Friendly to Seniors, an advocacy group and member of the City
of Sudbury Seniors Advisory Panel, which has made a motion to keep the
Memorial Site open, it was decided to examine in detail the matter to
try to make some sense of what many of the professionals involved say is
a very complex issue. As someone who had a relative (mother in law) as
a resident of both a non-profit and for-profit nursing home for some
time, I am not unfamiliar with these facilities or of the overall
situation. John Gaul, a member of our board – Treasurer) took part in
this study. Our thanks to Dan Lessard, for arrangements and the staff
at both hospital locations for taking the time to show ups around an
explain the programs in place and services provided.
a visit to the Memorial Transitional Care Unit where I was most
impressed with the renovations to the building to accommodate the ALC
patients in an interim setting with excellent care by a skilled and
devoted staff. The goal of the Transitional Care Unit is to maintain
the physical and mental health of patients until such time as
appropriate nursing home accommodations become available. It is our
opinion that this Unit must continue to fulfill this function. We
dropped by the local LHIN (Health Integration Network) office located at
the Memorial site on the first floor and were surprised to learn that
officials here apparently had never visited the Unit, for which they had
originally authorized funding, located on the floors just above them.
They have stated that the purpose of this unit was only to address the
needs of the current 130 residents with no plans for the ALC patients
now and in the future at the Sudbury Regional Site, not to mention the
estimated 700 to 900 persons identified by the Community Care Access
Centre as waiting for nursing home care.
a visit to the Sudbury Regional Hospital Site where it was discovered
that the ALC patients in this facility were not located in just one area
but were indeed, as stated previously, in beds throughout the hospital,
at times even in lounges and other inappropriate areas. While staff
cares for their basic needs they are unable to provide nursing home
services to the extent as ALC patients receive at the Memorial
Transitional Site. This was confirmed by both staff and patients. It
is obvious that these ALC individuals at the Regional Site should become
residents at the Memorial site until such time as appropriate nursing
home accommodation becomes available. This would also enable the
Regional site to do even better work with initiatives now under way
including Geriatric Emergency Management, the Long Term Care Residence
Emergency Department Outreach Service, the Geriatric and Adult Rehab Day
Program and the Elder Life Program.
not keep the Memorial Transitional Care site open – is it a matter of
cost? According to figures supplied by the Hospital it costs between
$800 and $1,100 to keep an ALC patient at the Sudbury Regional Site each
day. At the Memorial Transitional Site the cost is between $300 and
$350 a day. It would appear that besides saving a minimum of $450 a day
per patient by caring for these patients at the Memorial Site, rather
than the Regional site, the hospital would have the use of these beds
now and in the future for regular patient care.
said that the ALC matter is very complicated, and that many varied
scenarios have to be explored and that ultimately a “community solution”
needs to be found. It is true that we need more home care and
supportive housing plus other measures including more nursing home
spaces, but they quite simply do not exist to the extent necessary to
solve our current crisis. Until such time as they do, we have a
facility, the Memorial Transitional Care Unit that can address this
interim need for as long as it takes for the other measures to become
reality. We are doing a disservice to those ALC patients at the Sudbury
Regional Site, now and in the future, who will occupy beds that could
otherwise serve our community for the purpose for which they were
intended, while at the same time denying them the services they could
enjoy and deserve at the Memorial Transitional Care Unit.
Unless we are missing important pieces of the puzzle or there are
agendas of which we are not aware it would certainly appear in terms of
cost and quality of care plus overall operational efficiency to keep the
Memorial Transitional Site open to accommodate Regional hospital ALC
patients. It would be most unfortunate if these sick and mostly older
individuals, who are largely without voice or influence, are pawns in an
uncaring bureaucratic health care system that gives low priority to
their needs. If this indeed is the case, with an ever increasing and
aware senior population, it will not be tolerated for much longer –
already senior’s organizations and other interested groups and citizens
are mobilizing to address this issue in an attempt to reverse the
decision to close the Memorial site. For more information go to

can you do? As this appears to be a political issue contact your local
councillor, local MPP (provincial) and even your MP (Federal). Money
from all levels of government has and is continuing to be “invested” in
our health care system and our local hospital. Putting “pressure” on
all of these individuals is the only way to be able to effect change –
change that is obviously very much needed to rectify this situation for
the benefit of all. Do it now, by e-mail and/or letter.
the information of Council, the Mayor and Council’s Seniors’ Advisory
Panel passed the following motion at a meeting on November 5th,
2010 for consideration by the future Council.
WHEREAS it is reported that the Memorial site will be closed in March of
2011 following the opening of various alternate accommodation for ALC
patients currently occupying this facility;
WHEREAS there are and still will be ALC patients at the Sudbury Regional
Hospital site requiring accommodation, and that the operation of the
Sudbury Regional Hospital is adversely affected by the presence of ALC
patients at this facility;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Council of the City of Greater Sudbury
enforce recommendations with provincial health care authorities involved
that the Memorial site remain open and accept all ALC patients currently
at the Sudbury Regional Hospital site until such time as permanent and
sustainable alternative accommodations are made available or all
community based programming is designed and in place for addressing
future ALC issues.
those interested in our future:
Constructive, Practical and Productive Use of Water Towers - Making
Are we missing an opportunity by not using one or perhaps both of our
old water towers for two projects currently being championed in our
city? I am referring to the proposed School of Architecture and a new
home for the Sudbury Art Gallery.
Using a bit of imagination (and referring to the attached article in
which a similar water tower in Western Canada was completely refurbished
for not much more than the city projected cost of repainting) it is not
difficult to see how our old water towers could be put to use for one or
possibly both of these uses and for far less cost than building
completely new facilities.
If used for an Art Gallery the top portion could serve as the gallery
(attracting visitors up if even if just to observe the view, while
increasing attendance) while at the base there would be room for other
creative art work spaces - the sides could display art work or for
commercial purposes to help support the gallery.
For the school of architecture - just leave it to the imagination of the
occupants to create a novel learning environment. These could be
"heritage" projects that would enrich our city for generations.

The Fight to Keep
R.H. Murray PS Open
As a vital
resource for our communities- now & in the future!
As Co-Chairs and long-time residents of Walden, Richard Bois and I (and
our spouses) spent 2 hours on Friday night, in the Beaver Lake Sports
and Cultural Club, attending the R.H. Murray Community/Parents Meeting.
Cathy Stadder-Wise, Chair, R.H. Murray School Council & member of the
ARC-Sudbury West had invited us to attend.
We went to listen and to learn ‘first-hand’ what the west-end
communities & parents think about the Rainbow Board’s Administrative
Council’s recommendation on December 17,2007 to close R.H. Murray PS.
What we witnessed was a hall filled with parents (several children),
grandparents, residents- young and old- from Beaver Lake, Nairn, Penage,
Whitefish, Worthington & other communities in Walden plus MPP Gelinas,
School Trustee Santala, School Trustee Fox, several ARC-Sudbury West
members, and the media.
What we heard loud and clear, is that the communities and parents will
fight to keep R.H. Murray PS (the only elementary school in over 400
square kilometers west of Lively to Espanola) open- as a vital resource
for their communities- now & in the future! They support the ARC-Sudbury
West Options- all of which recommended keeping R.H. Murray PS open! They
will do everything they can to keep R.H. Murray open for their children
and their children’s children.
We learned that:
a. Members of ARC-Sudbury West were surprised on Dec. 18, to hear the
announcement of Jean Hanson’s Administrative Council recommendation to
close R.H. Murray. This recommendation utterly disregards the three
Options developed by ARC members. We were told that in all three, five
sets of schools- with five sets of parents, teachers and principals, had
reached consensus that R.H. Murray is an important resource to the
community and therefore should be kept open.
b. Mr Price, a former Project Manager at INCO – with 35 years of
experience evaluating and implementing projects on budget and on time-
is in the process of evaluating the ‘numbers’ in the five School
Valuations- as posted on the website. He is appalled! The bottom line of
his 45-minute power point presentation is that the figures don’t add up!
Significant reference information and costs are missing. And he is not
yet finished with his evaluation!
c. Throughout what should have been a celebration of Christmas holidays,
the Parent Council and the communities have been busy coordinating their
campaign to fight the closure of R.H. Murray PS. They have been: sending
letters to parents; booking the Beaver Lake Hall; sending letters to the
Editor, websites, and to residents; doing interviews for radio, TV and
newspapers; phoning and emailing Trustees and politicians and holding
planning meetings. With the final decision by the Rainbow Board to be
made on Feb.18th they are encouraging everyone to get involved and to
continue lobbying by contacting the Trustees to
express their desire to keep their children educated at R.H. Murray.
They will be
exploring all possibilities!
Walden-West communities should not have to
fight to keep R.H. Murray open.
The final ARC-Sudbury West Report - developed during the nine months’
ARC process- although not pleasing to all community members, was a
creative & viable alternative to the status quo. Each of the three
Options recommended R.H. Murray remain open.
Walden-Can continues to strongly support ARC Option A!
”… Represents the committee’s response to input provided by the
community at public meetings…A majority of the committee supports this
option as the preferred choice…consideration for the future through a
new green school l[which] addresses the facility concerns at the two
schools with the most pressing issues- George Vanier (with its actual
physical condition) and Jessie Hamilton (over enrolment without space to
grow)…also responds to the enrolment pressures at the secondary school
by providing potential for growth by developing a Grade 7-12 focus
through moving Grade 7 and 8 students…recommending that FI be provided
Grade 7 –12…having Copper Cliff students feed into the secondary school
in Lively…also responsive to community’s desire to have a school located
in each community (Whitefish, Lively and Copper Cliff)”
From Nov.12, 2007 ARC-Sudbury West Report
The Director, however, has chosen to ignore vital aspects of this
thoughtfully produced report and has indicated that her wishes are
If the Rainbow Board supports her recommendations as opposed to Option A
in the ARC Report- the preferred choice of the committee and the
community- I feel they will have made a mockery of all the agonizing
done by the ARC-Sudbury West members and all of the parents, individuals
& community groups (including Walden-CAN) that conscientiously worked
within the Ministry guidelines – in each step of the process.
If a plan was already conceived, there was no reason for our schools &
communities to be part of the ARC process. The Sudbury West
accommodation review would not be a democratic process – but an exercise
in showmanship! Telling us that the Ministry insists that this ARC
process be followed is not a good enough answer!
On February 19th we’ll learn who makes the decisions impacting the
future of our rural schools in the outlying communities of CGS- the
School Trustees, the Administrative Council or the Ministry.
Value to our students and value to our communities should outweigh
value to the school board.
Note: The final opportunity for public input is at the January 21st
Board Meeting in Council Chambers at Tom Davies Square. Deadline for
Briefs is Jan.11

One Interchange- 2 Locations Proposed
By-Pass Four-laning Project
Interchange – 2 Locations Proposed for the Southwest By-Pass Four-laning
Project: The two Interchange alternatives proposed are: Fielding/Kantola
Rd and Southview Drive. Regardless of where the Interchange is built,
there will be collector roads, running parallel to the By-Pass – on
north & south sides. However, after construction there will be no access
on to the Southwest By-Pass – except at the one Interchange.
Fielding/Kantola Rd. Alternative, in our opinion, is the preferred
Access to the Southwest By-Pass is
(fire, police, ambulance) to:
residential population south of By-Pass
sector along Fielding Rd.
Daily Travel east
or west along By-Pass by:
residential population south of By-Pass
sector along Fielding Rd.
maintenance/snowplowing, garbage/blue box collectors etc
year-round public access to Fielding Memorial Park:
Trans-Canada Walking Trails
held at Fielding Memorial Park
If the residents of Walden
don’t speak up, in support of the Fielding/Kantola Rd. Interchange - at
the Thursday, March 8/07, Public Information Centre 2, from 4 –8pm at
the Countryside Arena – they could lose access to the Southwest By-Pass
at that location.
If you are unable to attend the
March 8 Public Information Centre 2 and/or want further information,
www.sudburyswbypass.ca to contact the Project Team.
One of the questions we should
ask is: What is the cost – MOT capital dollars, MOT/CGS long-term
maintenance and life-style – of constructing 2 Interchanges VS
constructing two 2-lane collector roads on the north and south sides of
the Four-lane By-Pass and one Interchange?

Re Policing or lack there of
Walden Senior Citizens and Pensioners’ Inc.
P.O. Box 488
15 Kin Drive,
Dear Walden-CAN Executive,
It has been brought to my attention by the Seniors of Walden
area that they have many concerns about policing.
(1) Vandalism (private property, Senior’s Centre, Anderson farm)
(2) Break and enter
(3) Theft of property (hanging plants this summer)
(4) Concerns for safety
(5) Speed of police response
A year ago at this time I came before the Walden-CAN with these
concerns. You responded by having Constable Zuliani and Chief
Davidson before the committee. They stated that Walden had a low
crime rate so the policing was sufficient. I would like to keep
the crime rate low by having more police presence. We all know
parking police cars in front of the store front does not deter
I am sure there are more than Seniors interested in this matter.
(1) Business owners
(2) All property owners
(3) Parents with small children and teenagers
(4) Walden-CAN as representatives of the public
This summer numerous fires were started at the Anderson Farm
Museum. This site is a meaningful treasure for the citizens of
Walden and the City of greater Sudbury. If we were to lose any
building on this site it would be a loss of public pride,
tourism and business for our community.
I respectively request that Walden-CAN set up a task force to
investigate policing in the Walden area, before our safety

Intersection HWY 144 and Regional road 24
At the Jan. 8th board meeting of the Walden
Seniors and Pensioners', concern was expressed about the lack of
lighting at the junction of HWY. 144 and Regional Rd.24.
As you approach from Chelmsford to make a left turn to 24 or
make a right or left onto 144 from 24 the lack of light, we
believe is hazzard.
This matter was presented to Terry Kett some time ago, with
little result. (This may not have been his fault)
A flashing red light has been installed on Regional Rd. 24 but
this does not solve the problem. I believe we all know to stop.
We just want to be able to see better. A Street light on the
corner would let travellers on 144 see the intersection as well
as those on 24.
If there are others who feel the same way, please notify us so
we can make a unified attempt to correct the situation.
Let's do this before we have a serious accident.

I have noticed on the main web
page the different communities, well Penage is a Hotel in
Whitefish and the lake is spelled "Panache`" as Lake
Panache` which is named by the Whitefish Lake Native Indian
Elders. I was once told by Mr. Felix Sky an elder that has
passed away but years ago he told me that Panache` means
'beautiful waters' or ' rough waters'. So for the word 'Penage'
in the community of Whitefish is a Hotel not the lake community.
As I am fully aware of the proper spelling I wish for it too be
changed to the proper spelling of Panache`. It is also a proper
name of a 'parfum' in France.
Policing in Walden?
arrived for work on Saturday morning, Nov.11th, I was
informed that there had been a break & enter in the business block. This
building contains our pharmacy as well as a convenience store, hair
salon, tanning spa and several apartment units. The break-in had
occurred the night before.
After checking the rest of the building, I made a call to the Police in
Sudbury, after trying in vain to reach an officer at our local office.
This call was made prior to 11:00am Saturday morning, and I was
told that an officer would be dispatched when one became available,
although I did explain that we were not sure if the person had in fact
left the building.
An officer arrived to investigate after 6:00pm Monday night!
During those two days, I was informed that a vehicle parked next door
had also been vandalized the same night as our break-in.
In my opinion, this response time does not seem adequate, especially
considering the accessibility and vulnerability of both business and
residential tenants to this crime! Unfortunately, this type of response
from our “local” police force is not uncommon now. Our local officers
are now spending most, if not all of their shifts covering other areas
of the city, often due to staffing shortages in other areas of the city.
Frequent calls are being made from businesses in the area, as well as
citizens at our Library/Seniors Centre, with absolutely no response from
our police officers.
The citizens of Walden are currently paying for a service that is not
being provided, despite the fact that a huge (and growing) portion of
our local taxes is being spent on policing.
The concerns, complaints and safety of the residents of Walden are not
being addressed adequately by our police service and its time that this
change. Perhaps a local panel or action group could be established, to
work with our police force to address our current level of policing. The
Citizens of Walden deserve the proactive, visible and available police
service that we’d had for decades.
