Candidate disqualified over "fun" video

publisher Dec 2, 2016 - 3:26pm

Derek Duval, of Vankleek Hill, says he has been disqualified from tomorrow's Glengarry-Prescott-Russell Conservative nomination convention because of a video shot "in good fun" years ago.

Mr. Duval says the last-minute decision came after party officials thought a pile of poutine shown being eaten off a hockey stick was a hamster. Plus, the person in the video isn't him.

Mr. Duval, son of long-time Vankleek Hill councillor Paul Emile Duval, charges the real reason was that party leader Patrick Brown wants Amanda Simard, a Russell councillor, to be the Tory standard-bearer in the next Ontario election.

Not ready for business: Williamstown park building unavailable to public

sean Jan 5, 2016 - 11:02am

Williamstown's park building is still not ready for public access. The new structure has been under development since a suspicious fire destroyed the previous erection last spring. A charity hockey tournament slated for Dec. 26-27 was forced to be cancelled due to the unavailability of the building. No word yet when it will be ready.

North Dundas mayor accepts North Glengarry challenge

sean Feb 17, 2015 - 9:47pm

In the EOJHL St. Lawrence Division semifinal series between the Alexandria Glens and the Winchester Hawks, more will be on the line than a berth in the division finals.

North Dundas mayor Eric Duncan accepted the challenge of North Glengarry deputy mayor Jamie MacDonald. Their wager? The loser will have to wear the team jersey of the winner for a full council meeting.

You can check out the Twitter banter between the two by following @MayorDuncan and @deputymayor_ng

The series between the Glens and Hawks is scheduled to open Wednesday night in Alexandria. See the Feb. 18 edition of The Glengarry News for the full schedule and a playoff preview.
