Bruce Beach News
Welcome to April's edition of the LHCCC Newsletter! Spring has “sort of sprung”? Mother nature is trying her best to bring back our summer weather, and I am sure many of you are contemplating your returns to your cottages and planning your summer vacation.
Deep Geologic Repository (DGR) Project for Low and Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste
The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has requested additional information from Ontario Power Generation following its technical review of the Response to the request by the Minister of Environment and Climate Change. The technical review included a comment period to receive the views of the public, Indigenous groups, and expert federal departments and ran from January 18 to March 6, 2017.
KINCARDINE, ONT. - A moment of reckoning has come for Canada’s nuclear industry and millions of people who rely on the power source to keep their lights on.
For over 40 years, nuclear reactors in three provinces have pulsed with energy created by powerful fission reactions and it’s created a complex problem: what do you do with radioactive waste that stays lethal for 100,000 years?
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is the company responsible for managing waste produced by Ontario’s three nuclear plants – Darlington, Pickering and Bruce.
They say the answer lies in the sleepy community of Kincardine, Ont., where the world’s largest operating nuclear plant, Bruce Nuclear Generating Station, is located.
Open House for Comprehensive Zoning By-Law Review
The Township of Huron-Kinloss has begun the process of completing a comprehensive review of its Zoning By-Law.
Just wanted to send a quick note to remind everyone that we still have lots
of Bruce Beach apparel in stock. Hoodies, zipped sweatshirts, crew neck
sweatshirts, t-shirts. Perfect for the cool nights of the coming fall. Lots
of sizes still available. These items make great Xmas gifts as well!
Due to a last minute change of schedules, we need volunteers to lead the Junior Baseball for the last two weeks of the summer - starting TOMORROW!!
Even if you can only help out for a couple of days during the week that is OK. We will patch together full weeks with multiple people if required. .
I have spoken to the Township and they will remove all debris, including trunks from the side on the roadway. The home owners are responsible for getting the trees cut up and piled at the side of the road. The home owners will be responsible to rake and clean up after they are gone.

Way to go Tess. Tess also won gold in a previous meet in England.

7600 Canadian soldiers who took part in the liberation of the Netherlands & who lie buried in British Commonwealth cemeteries in that country are testament to this Bible passage.
In May of this year, the KSPB was privileged to visit the Netherlands to take part in the 70th anniversary commemorations of the Liberation of that country and the end of the Second World War.
The Dutch people were wonderful hosts who treated us royally. Before discussing the band trip, I would first like to give some background on the Netherlands and the role of our troops in its liberation.
Last Sunday Leslie Ray, long time Bruce Beacher and member of both the Churchgrove and the Kincardine Pipe band spoke eloquently of her trip to the Netherlands in May to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands. Leslie used the opportunity to clearly explain the close connection that has existed, undimmed with the passage of time, between Canadians and Dutch. She did it with humour, gravitas and emotion.. I am hoping that Leslie will allow us to circulate the text of her speech to the beach through Ross's distribution.
We were very lucky on Sunday to have survived the storm with no persons injured. Or at least none that I'm aware of. Unfortunately there was damage done to some cars and cottages. I think we all need to be more thoughtful for our own safety in the future. After seeing some trees that appeared to have been twisted off the stump and seeing huge trees that had been tossed around like twigs we need to understand the danger of standing by a window watching a severe storm like this.
A kitten was brought to baseball this morning, found by a family, perhaps an orphan from the storm, I didn't get the whole story from the mass of kids adoring her. Long story short, I took the kitten home,I couldn't leave it there, and agreed to look after it and try to find it a home. Could you please send a mass email asking if anyone wants a kitten or know anyone missing a kitten? We are here until Friday at noon. If no one claims her or is interested we will take her home to Toronto Humane Society. I presume she is a barn kitty, she is gorgeous, sweet and calm, not at all feral or even nervous, and follows the kids everywhere. We are totally smitten with this kitten but are not keeping her (I repeat), not keeping her.

FOR well over forty years the Summer Resort known as Bruce Beach on Lake Huron’s friendly shore has been the holiday rendezvous for health-seekers, pleasure-seekers and tor those who were just tired. From a very modest beginning the popularity and the population have grown by leaps and bounds. The need of having some sort of historical souvenir which would preserve the happy annals of the Beach had been keenly felt for a long time. It was not, however, until the year 1915 that the meeting of this need took concrete form.
Shortly after the Bruce Beach Historical Society was formed in the Fall of 1981, I was having lunch with a friend. When asked why I had given up curling that year, one of the two or three reasons I mentioned was my interest in publishing history of Bruce Beach, where my family had been spending their summers for more than sixty years. "How fortunate you are to have such roots", replied my friend.
