RVH closes parking lots to resurface them

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) is currently resurfacing its staff and visitor parking lots.
As part of Phase 2 of this project, the emergency parking lot will be closed as of Friday, July 23, and construction fencing will be erected to prepare for renovations over the weekend. It is anticipated this lot will be closed to the public for two weeks.
People arriving at RVH’s emergency department should use the drop-off zone in the emergency entrance and then park in the main visitor parking lot. RVH apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this resurfacing project.

Scarlett McTavish is currently enrolled in a pre-apprenticeship program at the Georgian College Muskoka Campus this summer. The campus is offering a free construction trades pre-apprenticeship program this fall to help address demand for workers in the skilled trades. It includes a Carpentry, Electrical and Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning pre-apprenticeship starting Sept. 13.


Those looking to gain skills for entry into the construction trades can start building an in-demand career with Georgian College’s free pre-apprenticeship programs at the Muskoka Campus.
The campus is offering one stream this fall to help address demand for workers in the skilled trades, which are a significant job creator in the region. This latest offering includes a Carpentry, Electrical and Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning pre-apprenticeship starting Sept. 13. 
Muskoka Campus Associate Dean Mac Greaves said the programs are ideal for those seeking to enter the skilled trades, but who need additional training and support and want to learn more about the industry.
“We know that the construction industry makes up about 23 or 24 per cent of full-time employment in the Muskoka region,” said Greaves. “It’s actually the largest employer of full-time people, and we know that there’s a huge need for entry-level workers in the construction industry.”
These programs will be offered through a combination of remote and in-person learning. Any in-person classes will follow safety protocols as outlined by the provincial government and local public health units.
In addition to hands-on learning, students will receive first aid, WHMIS and working at heights training, and such soft skills as communication, teamwork and personal management. This will help them connect to a robust job market and meet entrance requirements for the construction trades. Job search skills, job and trade readiness planning, and a paid 12-week work placement are also included.
Scarlett McTavish is currently enrolled in a pre-apprenticeship program at the campus this summer.
“This program provides an excellent avenue to explore three different trades,” said McTavish. “As someone who came into the program with zero experience, I feel supported and encouraged by the instructors. I was also thrilled to see the large number of young women participating in the program which fosters a safe and inclusive environment for us to pursue our career explorations.”
Graduates from Georgian’s pre-apprenticeship programs have either gone on to post-secondary programs at the college, or have secured employment and are currently working in the field. The deadline to submit applications for the program is Sept. 1.
The program is free to those who qualify. Applicants must be 16 years of age or older, a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant, and not already registered as an apprentice. Email muskoka@georgiancollege.ca for more information and a link to the application form. 
The pre-apprenticeship program at Georgian College is a tuition-free program funded by the Government of Ontario that is designed as a transition step to finding an apprenticeship.

This Thursday (July 22), curbside collection will occur in the tornado recovery area. This week is recycling pick-up for residents in this area; however, the City’s curbside collection contractor will assist in picking up bagged garbage at the curb.
To date, City staff have hauled and disposed of approximately 108 tonnes of tornado debris at the Barrie Landfill Site. For affected residents, fees will be waived at the landfill until July 23.
The City has hired a contractor to assist with chipping trees. Residents are asked to bring tree debris to the curb and phone 705-728-8442 to ensure collection. For non-tree tornado debris, residents are asked to continue to use the large public bins located in the area or along the park frontage of Coronation Parkway. The bins will be removed on Monday, July 26.
City building officials continue to review engineering reports and clear Unsafe Orders as requirements are met. Building staff will remain onsite at the City’s information centre located in the trailer near Saint Gabriel’s School (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) until Friday to help facilitate resident inquires. Following Friday, residents can call the tornado assistance line at 705-728-8442 or email building.official@barrie.ca.

Now that plans for a performing arts centre/convention facility at the site of the old Fisher Auditorium (artist rendition above) have collapsed, a task force is coming up with a new strategy. Will this initiative finally bring a long-sought centre to Barrie?


• A Closer Look

The first thing one might notice about the City’s Performing Arts Centre Task Force is its size, with no fewer than 12 members tasked with finding a downtown location for a new theatre.
Back on April 22, council authorized the creation of three task forces to deal with pressing concerns: the Affordable Housing Task Force, the Market Precinct Task Force, and the one looking for a new theatre site. A recent memo to council provided an update detailing the number of times the committee has met, four to date, as well as progress in the search for a new location.
As might be expected, members concur that the new location should remain the address of the old one: the Fisher Auditorium at 125 Dunlop Street East.
Readers might recall the City’s plans to renew the Fisher Auditorium into a state-of-the-art 650-seat theatre/400-seat event centre; the old one sat adjacent to the now-gone Barrie Central Collegiate as a hub for a variety of performances. At least that was the idea before COVID-19 shut down many parts of the economy, including the entertainment/tourism sectors. The prospect of dwindling audiences and rising costs led council to abandon plans to remake the auditorium.
That didn’t mean abandoning plans for a theatre to replace the Fisher and the closed Georgian Theatre.
“The outcome of the Task Force’s work will be the development of a complete project plan, including appropriate key milestones, necessary to execute it including validation of the site location and key needs for the centre necessary to inform its design; establishing a budget, and overall fundraising targets. It is anticipated that the mission/purpose will be fulfilled by the end of 2021 and that members will remain on the Task Force until that time,” reads the report.
Ideally, a new performing arts centre would be built alongside a convention centre, as envisioned in the initial vision, and articulated by Ward 2 councillor Barry Ward last November.
“We are missing out on economic opportunities. Thousands of Barrie residents, at least before the pandemic, were spending a lot of money on conferences which helped other municipalities. We need to get some of those dollars back. I’m confident conferences will return in the future. It’s also worth noting that, even without a conference facility, Barrie needs a performing arts centre to replace the aging Georgian Theatre. Having a conference facility attached would help the performing arts centre, but it wouldn’t depend on it.”
The idea of a connected performing arts/conference facility appears to have been sidelined in the new search, at least for now. Who knows if plans for a conference centre will resurface later, perhaps in partnership with a developer in the downtown core. Maybe, maybe not.
Considering the task in front of them, 12 members might well be a workable number. They have been split into working groups, each responsible for different aspects of the project and reporting back to the larger group. They are:
Working Group 1: Purpose is to develop a scope of work for an architect that is based on the input of all user groups and the needs of a growing city
Working Group 2: Purpose is to garner community feedback and develop marketing and communications messaging to help obtain community support for the performing arts centre. This will include a public input presence on the city website and by phone as per council direction
Working Group 3: Purpose is fundraising  
The next communication from staff is expected in September, via a memo in council. The other two task forces are following the same timelines. A main theme of the initiative is helping the community recover from the pandemic by developing tourism opportunities.
The strategy harkens back to previous efforts to strengthen the local economy through the building of what economist Richard Florida called the ‘creative class,’ entrepreneurial professionals who pick a place to live based on available amenities that include cultural opportunities like performing arts centres. Back in October 2009, he was invited by local community and business leaders to share his thoughts, based on his then best seller, Who’s Your City, on how to make Barrie attractive to that creative class, benefiting from the economic spinoffs that a culturally evolved city might provide.
It’s about creating a sense of place where people can live, work, and play (complete communities), key factors in stimulating economic growth, he said then. It’s a message that continues to resonate in Barrie, past and present. Other connected efforts included the 2006 report, at a cost of $350,00, from Montreal-based commercial master planner Patty Xenos that called for the development of a downtown brand through the growth of five distinct districts: a culture node on Mulcaster, centred by the McLaren Art Centre; an entertainment district on Dunlop Street West; the creation of a downtown façade facing the bay, along with a mews featuring cafes and shops; a piazza of sorts to spur public use of Memorial Square; and a business zone on Collier Street.
And, back in 2011, the downtown BIA engaged the services of urban ‘renewalist’ Roger Brooks to help create a brand for the city centre. Among other measures, he advocated for an enhanced public use of Memorial Square, and a downtown hotel with a conference centre.
All of this is just a reminder that the search for that sense of place, and space, that defines the complete community is an ongoing process. Long-time Barrie residents might remember the drive to put a performing arts centre on the so-called H-block lands, where the downtown library now sits. Progress has been made; Meridian Place and the downtown streetscape project are prime examples. Building the long-sought performing arts centre will be another step along that long road.

Nine new family medicine physician residents recently joined the Family Medicine Teaching Unit (FMTU) at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) to complete the final two years on their journey to becoming family physicians (back row, left to right) Drs. Ovina Chow, Curtis Kelly, Jivan Gill and Taylor Stanojev; (front row, left to right) Drs. Timothy Lee, Anshu Jassal, Fatemeh Bakhtiari, Deidra Carr and Anthony Parrell. Photo courtesy of RVH


Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) continues to train and welcome new family doctors, as another group of residents begin their final two years of training in the health centre’s Family Medicine Teaching Unit (FMTU).
The program, which is affiliated with the University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine, recently welcomed nine new family medicine resident physicians to the FMTU’s residency program.
“These residents will have the opportunity to practice medicine with a full caseload of patients while gaining invaluable knowledge as they work alongside RVH’s many skilled physicians,” says Dr. Christine Stewart, Site Director, Family Medicine Residency Program at RVH. “It is an extraordinary environment in which to learn to become well-rounded and well-trained family physicians.”
Since the program began in 2009, 92 family medicine residents have trained at RVH, with 55 staying in the area to set up their own practices, provide temporary coverage for area physicians or work in the health centre’s Emergency and Hospitalist departments.
“As a teaching hospital we merge education and healthcare excellence to have a significant, positive impact on our community. We are pleased to welcome these new residents,” says Janice Skot, RVH president and CEO.
“Many physicians who have completed their training at RVH have gone on to establish practices in the area which has helped meet some of the demand for family physicians. As we focus our efforts on increasing the teaching and research opportunities available at RVH, we plan to continue growing, and hopefully keeping, exceptional physicians in this region.”
RVH welcomes Drs. Fatemeh Bakhtiari; Ovina Chow; Jivan Gill; Curtis Kelly; Timothy Lee; Anthony Parrell; Taylor Stanojev; Deidra Carr and Anshu Jassal.
In addition to welcoming the new residents, RVH also extends congratulations to the residents who graduated from the program this year, including: Drs. Mackenzie Chown; Gustavo Cordova; Stephanie Duquette; Lynda Ekeh; Mayer Grunfeld; Daniel Passafiume; Dominque Pike; Amanda Sauve; Dushyaan Sri Renganathan; Mark von Allmen; Taylor Ward-Able and Li Yin.

• The City released the following statement from Andrea Miller, general manager of infrastructure and growth management, in reaction to reports that some homes affected by Thursday’s tornado may not have been up to ‘code’

There is a difference between meeting the Building Code which defines minimum construction requirements and building to be tornado resistant which is a standard much higher than specified in the Building Code.
It is unreasonable to expect a roof to resist tornado strength winds and resulting forces when they are not required to be designed for that. Some of the winds were strong enough to lift and move the entire weight of a house, so it is not surprising that roofs were removed in their entirety. Also, once a roof is compromised, the effects of the loading it is subjected to becomes even more damaging.
It is clear a tornado imposes loads much more severe than those specified in the Building Code. The Building industry (including designers, engineers, building officials and code researchers and writers) recognize this. There are continuous efforts to update and upgrade the Code. The building industry works with the Province to review and update various aspects of the Code. This is one area that certainly can use some attention. The work like that being done by the Northern Tornadoes Project researchers will certainly be valuable as the Province considers updates to the Code. The City supports sharing these finding with the Province and National Code researchers to facilitate improvements to the Code. 
Suggestions that the homes in Barrie affected by Thursday’s tornado did not follow Code casts a misleading shadow on the excellent work of our registered building professionals as well as the broader building industry.
We want the people of Barrie to know that we take the safety of all residents seriously and every effort is made to ensure compliance with the Building Code.

• Editor’s note: A Barrie Today story cited a tornado expert from the Northern Tornadoes Project questioning whether some homes followed the Code, citing an insufficient use of nails on roofs.

City of Barrie crews and emergency personnel have made significant progress cleaning up at the tornado recovery site. City staff had all public lands (ie. roads, sidewalks, boulevards, parks) in the affected tornado area cleaned up by the end of Sunday.
Barrie Police will release the tornado recovery site today (Monday) at noon, the City reports.
The City’s information centre located in the trailer near Saint Gabriel’s School will remain on site. If you need any assistance, call the tornado assistance line at 705-728-8442 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Building staff will be on site 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.
The Salvation Army will start to scale down the resident resource centre over the next couple of days. The City thanks the Salvation Army for their assistance in coordinating donations and the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board for providing the space at Saint Gabriel’s School to assist in the recovery efforts.
While the City is grateful for the outpouring of support from the community, donations and volunteers are not required at this time. Entrance into the affected tornado area remains restricted to property owners. Several properties have been deemed unsafe and the cleanup of any private property requires the consent of the individual property owner. The Ministry of Labour is on site to ensure safe working conditions. If people want to assist with cleanup they must be outside of the tornado recovery area until the area has been released by Barrie Police.
Donating through the Salvation Army is the best way to help the affected community, while allowing the essential site evaluation and cleanup to occur.
Reminder: A no-parking order is in effect for the affected areas overnight so that the streets can be cleaned. A map of the no-parking area is available via barrie.ca/TornadoRecovery. Tow trucks will be brought in to help remove vehicles from the street if they can’t be moved due to damages.
Ongoing public information about the situation and resources are posted on our website atbarrie.ca/TornadoRecovery. Please also follow the City’s social media channels for updates.

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) is providing care for a number of patients who suffered minor injuries as a result of the severe storm in the south end of Barrie earlier this afternoon.
RVH is working closely with County of Simcoe Paramedic Services, Barrie Police Service and Barrie Fire and has staff and physicians on standby should extra resources be required.
“Our team is highly skilled and trained to handle emergency situations as this,” says Janice Skot, RVH president and CEO.
“We are ready to provide whatever level of care and support needed. In fact, we have deployed a physician and nurse to the area to assist with determining if someone needs further care in our emergency department. Our thoughts go out to the families and businesses impacted by the storm.”
Police say no fatalities have been reported.
Environment Canada issued a tornado warning around 2:30 this afternoon, and has since confirmed it was indeed a twister that touched down in the city’s south end, centred around the Mapleview Drive/Prince William Way area. The storm was short in duration, 10 to 15 minutes, but it caused significant damage to area homes and businesses. It knocked out power to thousands of residents.
Police urge non-area people to avoid the tornado zone as emergency crews are currently managing the situation. Premier Doug Ford was among those expressing concern.
“My thoughts are with everyone in Barrie and Innisfil affected by the severe weather today. A big thank you to our first responders that are currently on the ground helping the situation. Please stay safe everyone!” he said in a social media post.

Traffic stop results in drug-related charges

While at police headquarters, 10 large zip-locked bags that contained suspected methamphetamine were found. In total, police seized 11.1 pounds or 4.586 kilograms of suspected methamphetamine.

Two Barrie males are in police custody following a traffic stop that turned into a drug bust, netting 11.1 pounds or 4.586 kilograms of suspected methamphetamine.
On Monday at 8:39 p.m., Barrie police officers conducted a traffic stop involving a motor vehicle that had been travelling erratically on Hart Drive. The motor vehicle entered a nearby parking lot and the occupants attempted to flee on foot, police report.
The driver, a 33-year old Barrie resident, and the passenger, a 45-year old male from Spanish, when instructed to stop did so and returned to their motor vehicle as requested. At that time, police conducted an investigation which initially netted cannabis and methamphetamine that was in the car. A further search of the males resulted in a large quantity of Canadian currency being seized along with a prohibited weapon.
As the investigation continued, police learned that the arrested males had been staying in a nearby hotel and given the circumstances surrounding their arrest upon the hotel property, it was made clear that they were no longer welcome. Their belongings that were in the rented room were handed over to police who then transported the arrested males to police headquarters. A short time later while at headquarters, 10 large zip-locked bags that contained suspected methamphetamine were found in the hotel surrendered belongings. In total, police seized 11.1 pounds or 4.586 kilograms of suspected methamphetamine.
Both males have been jointly charged with:
• Possession of Schedule 1 Substance (Methamphetamine), contrary to Section 4(1) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act
• Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking (Methamphetamine), contrary to section 5(2) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act
• The driver was also charged with Possession of Prohibited Weapon while Prohibited (2 counts), contrary to Section 117.1(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada and Possession of Prohibited Weapon, contrary to Section 92(2) of the Criminal Code of Canada
Both accused males were held for a bail hearing and have been remanded in custody.

A Closer Look

Police, not bylaw enforcement, are responsible for enforcing the Highway Traffic Act, including noise infractions related to loud mufflers, according to a recent staff memo. The issue of noisy vehicles and mufflers was the subject of complaints by condo residents along Lakeshore Road.


When it comes to muffling the roar of noisy vehicles that leave many residents disturbed and annoyed, enforcement is best left in the hands of the police, and not the City’s bylaw enforcement officers.
That’s the gist of a recent memo to the finance and corporate services committee from Bryan Keene, acting supervisor of enforcement services, responding to a March 2020 council motion to review what other municipalities have done to tone down noisy mufflers and cars, and report back.
The motion also asked staff in the legislative and court services department to work with the Barrie Police Service concerning a possible joint blitz targeting noisy vehicles, to thank them for past efforts, and to encourage them to conduct additional blitzes in 2021.
Staff, writes Keene, contacted a number of municipalities, finding that bylaw staff do not have the authority to stop vehicles for noise checks. Further, because bylaw staff are not authorized to enforce the Highway Traffic Act (HTA), a joint blitz with police would be of “limited value,” he continued.
“Staff in the Barrie Police Service Traffic Unit confirmed that if a vehicle is stopped, in relation to it having an improper muffler and/or emitting unreasonable noise, the most appropriate action would be to continue an investigation under the Highway Traffic Act, as both of those offences are violations. If fines are imposed upon the driver, then non-payment of those fines would result in a suspension of their driver’s licence through the Courts which may prompt the driver to rectify the driving behaviour or the identified equipment issues.”
The memo offers no surprises, as it merely stated the obvious: that police and not City bylaw staff are responsible for dealing with HTA infractions. Residents might rightly wonder why the expense/time was required to arrive at what seems like an evident conclusion.
Regardless, the memo did land at a timely moment, as council recently dealt with noise complaints on Lakeshore Road, between Simcoe and Tiffin streets. Complaints by residents in condos along the waterfront road initially led to Ward 2 councillor Keenan Aylwin tabling a motion to reduce the speed limit on the road to 30-kph. That failed to get traction, with council instead approving a survey to get community feedback on traffic safety measures, including possible speed reductions.
In hindsight, the issue on Lakeshore should never have been about speed, as there are lots of measures, including volume and traffic lights, along that stretch of road to slow traffic. It’s about noise created by vehicles, particularly those adapted with noisy mufflers, and such. That being the case, this is not a concern limited to the condos of Lakeshore. In addition to noisy mufflers, there are all sorts of noise annoyances across the city: music, pool pumps, air conditioners, lawnmowers to name just a few.
It’s also worth pointing out that noise and an urban environment kind of go hand-in-hand. To some degree, we just have to put up with it. And when it is excessive, bylaw enforcement has the authority to handle ‘backyard-type’ complaints, as well as parking, while police are largely responsible for what occurs on the roads. Seems simple enough, doesn’t it?

Barrie police seek the assistance of the public in identifying two teens suspected of being involved in the assault of a 13-year-old girl.
On Monday, about 5 p.m., the girl was at Emma King Elementary School located at 383 Cundles Road West when she was assaulted, police report. The responding police officer learned that while sitting on a hydro utility box in the schoolyard, two unknown males on black bicycles approached her location from the south end of the schoolyard.
After a brief interaction, and exchange of words, one of the males grabbed the female by the arms and held her, while the second male brandished a knife, began waving it around in and assaulted the female. She was also kicked and sustained minor injuries. The victim was able to flee on foot from the suspects and ran north across Cundles through a catwalk that connects to Delaney Crescent, where she sought refuge at a friend’s house.

A Barrie man, 36, and woman, 32, have been arrested in connection with eight armed robberies at Circle K convenience stores dating back to May 30.
On Thursday at 3:39 a.m. uniform officers from the Barrie Police Service responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Circle K located at 110 Little Ave. The prompt police response allowed for a perimeter to be set up in the area, however, the subsequent canine track failed to locate the suspect responsible.
From the investigation that followed, police were able to determine that the suspect, armed with a knife, obtained cigarettes and a small amount of Canadian currency before fleeing the store on foot. The on-duty clerk who was working at the time of the robbery was uninjured.
This armed robbery was the eighth such occurrence since May 30 involving Circle K convenience stores in the Barrie, and as result of an ongoing investigation that was undertaken by several investigative and support services within the police service, last night, shortly after 11 p.m., two people were arrested without incident.
The male is facing the following charges: Robbery with a Weapon (8 counts), Disguise with Intent (8 counts), Utter Threats (2 counts). He has been held in custody and is scheduled to appear for a bail hearing later today.
The female suspect is also facing charges of Robbery with a Weapon (8 counts) and was released from custody overnight. She is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice located in Barrie on Aug. 11.
“I am very proud of the collaborative and professional approach that was undertaken by uniformed officers, investigators, and tactical response of the Barrie Police Service that identified and resulted in the arrest of two people … I am proud to say that Barrie is a safer place today by policing efforts put forward,” says Deputy Chief Wyllie Allan.

“We want to develop a tool where we can see whether students have evolved their skills in these four areas,” said Hunter. “For example, has a student increased (his/her) empathy? We know intuitively they’re moving the needle but a shared evaluation tool would allow us to hone in on where growth is actually happening.” – Dr. Sarah Hunter

Georgian College, in partnership with the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) and Ashoka Canada, is poised to help create a generation of young change-makers thanks to a $360,000 grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
Georgian’s research project, along with 53 other funded projects across Canada, will share over $38 million through the College and Community Social Innovation Fund (CCSIF) and College and Community Innovation (CCI). The objective of the grant is to equip educators with a tool to help measure and validate key skills and mindsets associated with successful social innovation in the 21st century and ultimately focus their efforts on where future growth can happen.
“Georgian is committed to advancing all types of research, and this NSERC grant illustrates that we also focus on impactful and meaningful research outcomes,” said Dr. MaryLynn West-Moynes, President and CEO, Georgian College.
Georgian’s lead investigator Dr. Sarah Hunter looks forward to amplifying what educators are already doing in the classroom around equipping students with the necessary skills to help change the world through social innovation.
“These changes can be really tiny from awakening empathy and showing more compassion to big ones like questioning their own privilege, dismantling systems of power, or creating a non-profit to effect change in their own community. Everyone can change the world – it’s determining what kind of change you want to make,” she said.
In collaboration with employers, educators and students, a Research Advisory Council will develop evaluation tools that measure growth in the four Ashoka change-maker competencies: empathy, shared leadership, teamwork, and change-making. These are the main competencies Ashoka has defined as the ones that will help with social transformation world-wide.
“We want to develop a tool where we can see whether students have evolved their skills in these four areas,” said Hunter. “For example, has a student increased (his/her) empathy? We know intuitively they’re moving the needle but a shared evaluation tool would allow us to hone in on where growth is actually happening.”
The council will be created during the first phase of the three-year research project and will provide advice throughout the length of it. The second year will be focused on piloting the tools with students to test, validate and refine them to determine the best ones that truly measure the competencies in a cohort of students. Finally, the last year of the project will be spent helping educators from kindergarten through to postsecondary build their capacity to incorporate these tools into their classrooms.
Dr. Hunter thinks this idea is very cool. “It would be great to see that the same tools used in kindergarten can also be used in Grade 8 and onto post-secondary.”
In addition to Dr. Hunter the project will include Tracy Mitchell-Ashley, Georgian faculty and project co-investigator and six student researchers. Suzie Addison-Toor, Director, Social Innovation and Student Success at Georgian will also be collaborating on the project.
As Canada’s first – and only – Ashoka U designated change-maker college, we believe ideas can spark innovation and small acts can lead to big change,” said Addison-Toor. “Georgian, Ashoka Canada and the Simcoe County District School Board share a commitment to creating change-makers and active citizens to build stronger, safer, healthier and more inclusive communities.”
Those who are interested in learning more about the Research Advisory Council and how they can participate can contact Dr. Hunter at sarah.hunter@georgiancollege.ca. This funding program is supported by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) through the College and Community Innovation (CCI) program, which is administered by Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC),  on behalf of the three federal granting agencies.

The City is encouraging residents to use Canada Day as an opportunity to learn about the histories and cultures of the Indigenous peoples of this region – photo by Ksenia-Makagonova

With the unfolding stories of unidentified burial sites being found at residential schools, and the growing call for action by Indigenous leaders and others, municipalities across the country have been mulling over how to celebrate Canada Day, with some cancelling the festivities outright.
The national celebration will still go on in Barrie, but there are efforts to push for reconciliation, solidarity, and consultation with local members of the Indigenous community. To that end, the City’s 2021 Canada Day activities are being themed around the country’s shared history, and will focus on education, reconciliation and reflection.
The City is encouraging residents to use Canada Day as an opportunity to learn about the histories and cultures of the Indigenous peoples of this region. As part of its recognition for National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21, the City prepared virtual programming that celebrated the heritage, diverse cultures and significant contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, and collected community partner resources for continued learning.
Resources related to National Indigenous Peoples Day can be accessed at barrie.ca/NIPD. The City will also recognize Canada Day through the following opportunities:
• Community message from Elder Jeff Monague and Mayor Jeff Lehman with a moment of silence at 10:30 a.m.
• The lights at Meridian Place and the Five Points Theatre will remain orange on July 1 in support of residential school survivors, their families and Indigenous communities across Canada
• In partnership with Red Quills, a sacred fire at the Spirit Catcher is being planned for July 1, subject to health restrictions. Anyone visiting the sacred fire will be required to wear a mask, maintain a distance of at least two metres from others, and follow all other safety requirements. All are welcome.
More details and links to resources for continued learning are available at barrie.ca/CanadaDay.

With summer now in full swing, residents are invited to enjoy Barrie’s beaches and parks, and support local businesses, while following COVID-19 health and safety measures. 
It’s important to continue to follow the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit’s advice to stay home when sick, stay two metres apart from others, wear a face covering outdoors if physical distancing cannot be maintained, and wash your hands thoroughly and regularly. 
Here are some other reminders and helpful information when visiting the waterfront and park areas this summer season:
BeachesBarrie’s beaches offer a great way to beat the summer heat, but residents and visitors are asked to remember the following:
• Please be respectful of the city and clean up your litter. If garbage cans are full, please take your garbage with you
• Barbeques and other cooking appliances are not allowed at waterfront beaches or parks

A swim advisory has been recommended by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) for Minet’s Point and Centennial beaches, based on water sample results from June 28.
City staff have posed advisory signage and will be re-sampling the water. A status update will be provided once a decision is made by the SMDHU. According to the health unit, water quality can change daily or even hourly depending on the weather and other conditions. Swimmers are encouraged to make smart decisions about beach-water quality before swimming.
Water quality at designated public beaches is tested regularly for bacteria. However, due to the delay in receiving lab results, beachgoers cannot rely on only lab results to know if it is safe to swim. Swimmers are advised to consider a number of factors before going in the water, such as rain, wind, the presence of waterfowl, wet sand and shallow water. 
More on beaches tested within the unit’s area can be found here.
