Irwin Cotler Award for 2016 announced by City of Côte Saint-Luc

The City of Côte Saint-Luc has awarded the first ever Irwin Cotler Awards to students in grade 6 and grade 11 who devoted themselves to the cause of social justice.

“The award was given to the students who best exemplify the act of improving the world and fighting for social justice,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “This has been the hallmark of Professor Cotler’s life and we think this award is a fitting tribute.”

For the last five decades, Irwin Cotler has devoted his intellect and advocacy skills to the promotion and protection of human rights around the world, first as an international human rights lawyer and later as a Member of Parliament for Mount Royal, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, where he made the pursuit of international justice a government priority.

Grade 11 recipient
Madison Gold was selected as the grade 11 recipient of the Irwin Cotler Award. Throughout her five years at Bialik, Madison volunteered many hours at various organizations including The Friendship Circle, the National Conference of Synagogue Youth and the Diller Teen Fellows Program. In addition, Madison has acted as a Bialik Ambassador for the past two years and has been heavily implicated in the mentorship program at Bialik.

At The Friendship Circle, she participated in innovative programs and activities where children with special needs experienced the joy of friendship. At the National Conference of Synagogue Youth, Madison has spent countless hours visiting sick people in the hospital, preparing Shabbat meals for the needy and making blankets for the Chai Lifeline. At the Diller Teen Fellows Program, her work enabled her to grow as an active and effective person within the community and strengthened her leadership skills towards social action and community involvement.

Madison Gold presented with award

 

Grade 6 recipient
The Irwin Cotler Award for 2016 for a student in grade 6 was awarded to Gabrielle Murray, who recently graduated from École des Amis-du-Monde.

Gabrielle raised more than $3,000 for Heshima, an organization in Kenya that protects unaccompanied minors and separated children and youth between the ages of 13 to 23 from Somalia, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, Rwanda, and Burundi. It provides safety and shelter for their most vulnerable participants, delivering a multi-disciplinary education program for students, supporting economic empowerment through a scarf-making social enterprise, providing childcare, accompanying participants to legal and medical appointments, and working within refugee community in Kenya to identify, protect and fight for their rights.

Gabrielle’s aunt works for the organization in Kenya and Gabrielle decided she wanted to help make a difference in the lives of these young girls. She brought together five classmates to launch a fundraising effort over two years. She also visited Kenya to meet the girls they helped. More information about the trip and a video is at http://www.greenangelsfoundation.org/chopping-for-charity/heshima-kenya/ and https://heshimakenya.wordpress.com/2016/05/13/montreal-6th-grader-sets-the-bar-for-supporting-human-rights/

All the schools in Côte Saint-Luc were encouraged to nominate one of their students to receive the Irwin Cotler Award. Nomination forms for the 2017 award will be sent to schools in January 2017.

Côte Saint-Luc Public Library 50th anniversary event

The City of Côte Saint-Luc will be celebrating the 50-year anniversary of its public library all day on Sunday, September 18, 2016 culminating with an outdoor concert and laser show behind the library.

“There is a slew of free events for the whole family,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “There will be a special birthday-themed story time for kids, face-painting, library bingo with prizes, cake and much more. Don’t miss the concert by Vintage Wine highlighting hits from the 1960s and the laser show.”

The concert starts at 5:30pm. The laser show – originally scheduled for Canada Day – takes place at 7:30pm. For the full schedule of events, visit csllibrary.org.

“Library Director Janine West and her staff have planned a wonderful day for all,” said Councillor Mike Cohen, the council member responsible for library and culture. “We will be celebrating this anniversary throughout the year, so visit the library website and subscribe to its e-newsletter and Facebook page to stay informed.”

The city council established a citizens committee in December 1964 to look into establishing a public library. The city hired Eleanor London and the Côte Saint-Luc Public Library opened its doors on September 7, 1966. Its 4,322 square feet was originally located on the second floor of the Côte Saint-Luc Shopping Centre. It moved to its current 23,000 square feet of space in 1986.

“Having been part of this great library, this jewel of Côte Saint-Luc, for almost 35 of these 50 years, it is fair to say I have seen some substantive changes,” West said. “However, one thing has remained constant: our commitment to Eleanor London’s vision of the ‘people’s library’, a welcoming and personable community space where its staff go above and beyond to provide exceptional customer service.” 

For more information about these events and programs, visit csllibrary.org or contact the library’s Programs Department at 514-485-6900, ext. 4205.

 

 

Ceremony to formally inaugurate Sidney Shoham Place set for Sunday morning, September 25

The City of Côte Saint-Luc will formally rename a section of Hudson Avenue to Place Sidney Shoham Place at a ceremony on Sunday, September 25 at 10am.

Beth Zion Congregation will host a small reception afterwards, which the entire community is invited to attend. In the event of rain, the ceremony will be held indoors, followed by the unveiling of the street sign.

Rabbi Sidney Shoham passed away on September 21, 2015, at the age of 86. He retired 10 years earlier as the founding rabbi of Beth Zion after having served in that role for 50-plus years. Rabbi Shoham continued to remain very active in synagogue life and in fact, passed away only hours after attending the synagogue’s annual Cantorial Concert, of which he was most involved.

Beth Zion president Earl Rosen said that it would be most fitting to rename the portion of Hudson Avenue, and the synagogue address 5740 Hudson Avenue, to 1 Place Sidney Shoham Place. He extended his appreciation to Mayor Mitchell Brownstein and Councillors Mike Cohen and Allan J. Levine for their assistance. Councillor Cohen is responsible for naming rights; Councillor Levine represents the district. At the ceremony, the new street sign will be unveiled and there will be words of welcome from Mr. Rosen, Mayor Brownstein, Rabbi Boruch Perton and a member of the Shoham family. 

On Tuesday, September 27, Beth Zion will host Scholar in Residence Rabbi Benjamin Blech at the Rabbi Sidney Shoham Memorial Lecture and then, on Thursday, October 6, the newly renamed Rabbi Sidney Shoham Tribute Concert called “The Gift of Music” will take place.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland the son of the late Rabbi Yechiel and Rebbetzen Ethel Shoham, Rabbi Shoham attended the Talmudical Academy of Baltimore and then went to Mesivta Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin in Brooklyn, New York. While studying at the yeshiva, Rabbi Shoham attended Brooklyn College at night and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in psychology. Later, he attended graduate school at New York University, School of Psychology and continued his studies in Montreal at the Allen Memorial Hospital – McGill University where he furthered his degree in Pastoral Psychiatry. 

Rabbi Shoham arrived in Montreal in 1955 to visit his brother Gilbert, who was Rabbi of the Beit Hamidrash Hagadol Synagogue on McKenzie. While here, he met with an enthusiastic group of individuals anxiously waiting to build a new community in the western suburb of Montreal. After discussions with the committee, he was quickly hired as the Rabbi of Beth Zion. Over the years, he had been active with nearly every Jewish organization in the city, notably Combined Jewish Appeal, B’nai Brith and State of Israel Bonds and the founder of the much needed Miriam Home.

Musicians of the World Symphony Orchestra to perform benefit concert in support of the Côte Saint-Luc Cats Committee on August 23

The Côte Saint-Luc Cats Committee (CSLCC) will hold its annual fundraising concert on Tuesday, August 23 at 7:30pm at the Syd Wise Auditorium of the Marymount Adult Education Centre at 5785 Parkhaven Ave.

Featured performers will be the Musicians of the World Symphony Orchestra (www.musiciansoftheworld.ca), conducted by Joseph Milo. Some members of his orchestra will also present solo performances. Funds raised from A Bouquet of Classics: The Music We All Love will go towards the CSLCC’s Trap, Neuter, Release and Adopt Program. 

“This benefit concert is an opportunity for people who love animals to enjoy an evening of fine music while contributing to a good cause,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “This is another example of how the city promotes arts and culture, close to home.”

Nutrience Pet Food by Hagen and D’Arcy McGee Liberal MNA David Birnbaum, will be the evening’s official sponsors.

“There are many feral cats in the community,” said Councillor Mike Cohen, the council member responsible for animal protection in the city. “The CSLCC’s team of volunteers sets out to trap as many as possible, have them sterilized and then adopted or returned to the spot where they were originally found. The committee has also rescued many kittens and found homes for them. In recent years the city has adopted cat licensing bylaw.”

The Musicians of the World Symphony Orchestra (MWSO) was founded in 2006 by conductor Milo and his wife Lucy Ravinsky. This one of a kind orchestra is composed of 55 musicians: about 80 percent of its members are from 15 countries around the world, while the remaining 20 percent are natives of Montreal who successfully facilitated the integration of the newcomers. They have been rehearsing at Côte Saint-Luc City Hall for many years and as part of the arrangement, they agree to perform a benefit concert once a year. The Côte Saint-Luc Cats Committee and Educhat are the 2016 beneficiaries.

Tickets are only $12 each (tax included) and can be purchased now at the following locations: the main desk at the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library (5851 Cavendish Blvd.); the Côte Saint-Luc Aquatic and Community Centre (5794 Parkhaven Ave.); and the Côte Saint-Luc Hospital for Animals (7930 Baily Rd.). Tickets can be purchased at the first two locations by credit and debit card or cash and cash only at the Animal Hospital.

Councillors Cohen and Sam Goldbloom, who are co-chairing the event, note that information will be available that night for people interested in possibly joining the committee or adopting a cat.  A bake sale will be held at intermission. For more information call 514-485-6806, ext. 2200 or log on to www.cotesaintluc.org/cats.

The Côte Saint-Luc smoke detector brigade visiting homes this summer

For the fifth consecutive year, members of the Côte Saint-Luc volunteer Citizens on Patrol (vCOP) smoke detector brigade are ringing door bells and offering to check smoke detectors and replacing dead batteries where needed.
 
The smoke detector brigade recently completed the south-east corner of the city including Borden, Randall, Alpine and Pinedale Avenues and surrounding east-west streets. It is now moving on to David Lewis and surrounding streets near the Décarie Square area.
 
“Smoke detectors save lives by warning people of possible fires in a home, but they can only do the job if they are working,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “Too many deaths occur in Canada that could have been prevented if the house was equipped with a working smoke detector.”

This initiative is done in partnership with the Montreal fire department. Smoke detector brigade volunteers will be wearing vCOP uniforms and carry a photo ID. If you are not home when they visit, they will leave a notice with information on how to schedule a visit. This is a free service.

“Once again, our vCOP teams are providing another level of preventative safety to residents,” said Councillor Glenn J. Nashen, who is the council member responsible for vCOP. “Whether they are checking smoke detectors, spotting garage doors left open, or watching out for homes of vacationers, our vCOP volunteers are helping Côte Saint-Luc remain one of the safest cities on the island.”

Côte Saint-Luc has a long history of fire prevention, including By-law 1556 requires smoke detectors in all new homes and buildings, which was adopted in 1977.

Annual Côte Saint-Luc Golf Classic to honour community leader Pierre Brunet

The  37th annual Côte Saint-Luc Golf Classic will take place at Meadowbrook  Golf Course, 8370 Côte Saint-Luc Rd. on Thursday, July 7, 2016. 

Some 100 golfers will tee off beginning at 7 am, with a special awards banquet honouring long-time community leader and McDonald’s Restaurant franchisee Pierre Brunet set for the Aquatic and Community Centre (ACC) at 5794 Parkhaven Avenue at 1 pm p.m.

Co-chairs, city councillors Mike Cohen and Sam Goldbloom, note that this year’s event will repeat the popular new  format launched in 2016, as well as the two  specific age classifications whereby players can compete (on a friendly basis) amongst their own age groups: MASTERS (age 65 and older) and EAGLE (age 64 and younger). The title sponsor this year will be La Capitale General Insurance. McDonald’s Restaurants of Quebec and Freemark Apparel Brands Inc. and its Bench brand are also among the sponsors. Veteran Côte Saint-Luc volunteer Ron Yarin is back as the honourary chair of the event along with Mark Routtenberg, president of Freemark Apparel Brands and former minority owner of the Montreal Expos. We are also pleased to once again thank Paul Steinberg and Silver Star Montreal for sponsoring our Hole-in-One contest. A hole in one will bring you a Mercedes-Benz on a free loan for one month. 

The event will honour Brunet as the Personality of Distinction. He will be recognized for more than 30 years of dedicated service, not only as franchisee of two local McDonald’s Restaurants in Côte Saint-Luc, but for his undying support for community events. In addition, the event will pay special tribute and raise funds for the Manoir Ronald McDonald. This is a temporary home away from home for out-of-town (more than 70 km) families of children with critical illness who must travel here for medical treatments. Traditionally, Côte Saint-Luc directs proceeds from its annual Winter Carnival events to this facility located next door to Ste. Justine Hospital via a pancake breakfast. This has resulted in donations of close to $50,000 for the Manoir. 

Côte Saint-Luc resident Matthew Ross, the host of TSN 690 Radio’s Game Points and the founder of Expos Nation (www.exposnation.com), will be the special guest speaker. Expos Nation has been working towards bringing professional baseball back to Montreal. Legendary broadcaster Dick Irvin will be among the golfers.

In case of thunderstorms on Thursday, July 7, the luncheon  will proceed with festivities at the Aquatic and Community Centre and golf will be postponed until the following Thursday, July 14. History will note that this event has never been rained out before.

The registration fee will remain at $27 (tax included),  which includes nine holes of golf, a catered sit down buffet luncheon, award-winning trophies for contests such as Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, and the opportunity to win one of many door prizes. A minimum donation of $10 is also being requested for the Manoir. Businesses can also sponsor a hole for $100, with proceeds going to the Manoir.

For more information, contact Harold Cammy or Alvin Fishman at hcammy@cotesaintluc.org or afishman@cotesaintluc.org or call 514-485-6806.

The city normally prohibits parking on streets between 3 am and 6 am and residents must call Public Security to request a temporary parking permit. However, the city grants a general overnight parking tolerance on many holidays—particularly those with out-of-towners visiting or when religious observances makes it difficult to move one's car.

You do not need to call Public Security and you do not require any pass to be displayed in your vehicle for the following period:

Friday, June 10 at 5pm to Tuesday, June 14 at 8am.

Note: Vehicles are not permitted to park in front of fire hydrants, in fire lanes, in front of driveways, in no-stopping zones or anywhere else when parking is never permitted etc.
