Hallowe’en Safety Tips from OPP

October 29, 2014

Hallowe’en 2014 is fast approaching and the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) wants everyone to have fun and be safe. “Hallowe’en is an exciting time of year for children,” said Inspector Tim Melanson, Caledon OPP Detachment Commander. “We need to remind our children how to avoid potentially dangerous situations while ensuring a memorable evening.”

Parents:

Accompany your children or ensure they are with a responsible adult
costumes should fit properly to prevent trips and falls
Select costumes with bright colors to increase your child’s visibility and add reflective strips
Provide your child with a flashlight and a cell phone, if available
Draw a map outlining the route they should follow and set a curfew
Do not allow your children to carry anything that looks like a weapon
Tell your children not to eat anything until they get home
Start trick or treating early before it gets too dark

Children and Youth:

Carry a white bag or pillowcase for your candy, or add some reflective tape
Bring a cell phone in case you need to make an emergency phone call
carry a flashlight
Trick or Treat with a friend
Visit homes that are well lit and never go inside a stranger’s home
Walk on the sidewalk whenever possible. If there is no sidewalk, walk on the side of the road facing traffic
Don’t criss-cross back and forth across the street
Never cross between parked cars, always at crosswalks, street corners or intersections
Don’t eat your treats before you get home. When home, ask your parents to look through the treats with you to make sure everything is safe
Tell your parents/guardians where you will be and Trick or Treat in familiar areas

Homeowners:

Turn on outdoor lights and replace burnt-out bulbs
Remove items from your yard or porch that might trip a child
Sweep wet leaves from your steps and sidewalk
Use an alternative to a candle in your pumpkin such as a flashlight or battery- operated candle. If you do use a candle, never leave it unattended

Drivers:

Drive slowly in residential areas where children are more likely to be trick or treating
Remember that costumes can limit a child’s vision and they may not be able to
see your vehicle
Reduce your distractions and stay alert
Enter and exit driveways slowly. Proceed with caution

Remember that safety is Caledon OPP’s top priority. If you observe any suspicious activity, please call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122.

Tim Horton Kid Zones in Caledon

October 22, 2014

Caledon Parks and Recreation skating program launches “Tim Horton Kid Zones”

The generous support of Tim Horton’s in Bolton has helped Caledon’s parks and recreation department provide skate aids to help preschool-age children feel comfortable on the ice. The Bolton donation added 40 skate aids to the town’s inventory.

“Across the country, Tim Horton’s plays a key role in countless community events,” said Brad Stafford, franchise owner. “And, personally, Liz and I are proud to be able to help Caledon’s preschoolers learn this quintessential Canadian sport.”

As well, this partnership with the Bolton Tim Horton’s has made it possible to launch the Tim Horton Kid Zones for young skaters at all of the public skate sessions in the four town arenas. The Kid Zone is a sectioned-off area of the rinks where young skaters can feel comfortable learning skills in an interactive, fun environment.

“As this community continues to grow, and the need for community-based recreational programming rises, partnerships like this become even more valuable,” said Mayor Marolyn Morrison. “We are thankful to Brad and Liz, and Tim Horton’s, for their support and help in meeting a need in our community, and we will continue exploring opportunities to work with our business community in delivering even more services.”

To view the entire public skating schedule, including holiday skate times, visit the town’s website at www.caledon.ca and type “fall public skate” in the search bar. For Learn to Skate programs, view the town’s fall and winter recreation guide by following the “Parks and Recreation” link on the town’s home page.

Strong Advance Poll Voter Turnout Reported

October 20, 2014

Town of Caledon 2014 advanced voter turnout strong to date; More advance voting opportunities to come

In the Town of Caledon, the first two advanced voting opportunities have led to strong voter turnout. Percentages shown below are based on “Count”, or number of eligible voters in the Ward(s). A total of 3.52% of eligible voters have already placed their votes.

Ward Count Votes to date Turnout

1 7,659 335 4.37%

2 8,824 376 4.26%

3 and 4 13,881 471 3.39%

5 16,096 452 2.81%

Total 46,460 1634 3.52%

This represents an increase over 2010, when after two advanced voting opportunities, 1320 or 2.89% of voters had placed ballots, and over 2006 numbers when just 376 people voted in the first two advanced polls.

Advanced voting opportunities are excellent for citizens who wish to avoid the Election Day “rush”. All advanced voting locations are equipped with accessible voting methods. Two more advanced opportunities taking place before Election Day:

Thursday, October 23, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. (noon) to 8:00 p.m.
Friday, October 24, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. (noon) to 8:00 p.m.
Visit www.caledon.ca/election for full advanced location listings by Ward, plus Election Day (October 27, 2014) information.

Voters are reminded to bring identification and voter cards. Residents may vote without a voter card, but must present identification showing name and qualifying address in the Town of Caledon.
