On World Stroke Day, Niagara Emergency Medical Services, the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada and Niagara Health are teaming up to ensure that more lives are saved from the effects of stroke. Niagara EMS will raise awareness of the signs of stroke and the importance of acting quickly by placing decals with the signs of stroke acronym ‘FAST’ on their ambulances.

Memory is part of what makes us human. On the centenary of the end of the First World War, The History Lab, with the support of Brock’s Department of History, the centre for Canadian Studies, and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, invite you to witness and remember the more than one million men and women who died in the last year of the way.

Today’s college graduates have the power to make a difference. That was the message that Niagara leaders passed on to Niagara College’s Class of 2018 on October 26 when about 1,100 new graduates were celebrated at Fall Convocation ceremonies.

While many students plan to spend mid-term break catching up on school work or relaxing at home, some Niagara College students have packed their bags for a global learning experience. More than 80 NC students are participating in International Field Studies (IFS) trips during mid-term break week (Oct. 22-26), to destinations including Amsterdam, Ireland and the Dominican Republic. The IFS trips are part of NC’s Be World Ready program, which supports the College’s aim to prepare world-ready and work-ready graduates. Offering culturally diverse learning environments through international experiences, the program aims to give students a competitive edge to launch their careers and develop global competencies.

This season’s production is a new adaptation of Robin Hood, and will be showing at The First Ontario Performing Arts Centre - Tickets are on sale for shows from 12 Dec through 23rd December 2018. A new take on the story of Robin Hood, this adaptation about a group of disenfranchised youth forced to squat in the abandoned development of Sherwood Forest, focusses on the themes of love, friendship, courage, acceptance and determination in the face of adversity.

Pathstone Mental Health has been selected as the 22nd recipient of Niagara College’s Many Hands project. The annual project sees Niagara College students support a local community non-profit organization with fundraising, marketing and public awareness of the agency.

A humanist Requiem, Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem is both grand and intimate, meditative and dramatic, offering consolation to the living and soothing the universal need for comfort in times of profound loss. 'A German Requiem', Brahms' most expansive and moving oratorio, is an anthem for our times.

Sung in German



Advance polls are now open in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and Election Day is fast approaching. This year, electors have 24 candidates to choose from for 8 available seats at Town Council.

I have been a resident of Niagara-on-the-Lake now for over 11 years and I love living here with my wife, kids and my first grandchild at the age of 47! It is great for the families and people of all ages but, I really feel that the Council here in Niagara-on-the-Lake needs a breath of fresh air as it has become stagnant with same people being voted in time and time again with broken promises and turning this Town into something it's not.

I want to thank the many thousands of people who I met as I walked door-to-door throughout our community and attended a number of candidate’s meetings and other events and all those who visited me on my website and Facebook. I would also like to thank Better Niagara and the Niagara Region Labour Council for their endorsements.
