30 Meter Buffer Imposed along Windsor Shoreline

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The Windsor Port Authority has authorized a temporary 30 day buffer zone of 30 meters for all motorized watercraft moving along the Windsor shoreline of the Detroit River.  This means no motorized watercraft can operate within 30 meters of shore unless docking.  “Historic high water levels have forced us to take extraordinary action to prevent on-shore damage to property along our waterfront” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens.  “Water levels are expected to continue to rise through August which means the situation is likely to get worse before it gets better”. The 30 meter zone takes effect immediately. “We are dealing with historic high waters’ crisis, not a shipping issue.  But still, by imposing a 30 meter ban we are asking all pleasure craft to be good neighbours and stay away from the shoreline property owners that are dealing with significant pressures”. Steve Salmons, President and CEO, Windsor Port Authority A postcard educating boaters of the 30 meter ban will be handed out at boating locations across the city and by the Windsor Police Marine Unit.  Social media and traditional media will also be counted on to help spread the word as quickly as possible. The Windsor Police Marine Unit will be tasked with enforcing the 30 meter zone but education is the focus. The 30 meter ban is the latest effort by the City of Windsor aimed at protecting properties from the extreme water levels.  A free sandbag program remains in place for a section of homes along the north side of Riverside Drive. Details on the sandbag program and more can be found on www.citywindsor.ca

Introducing FIT - A Simple, Safe and Accurate Way to Check For Colon Cancer

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Getting checked for colon cancer just got easier with the introduction of the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) in Ontario. The free test is now available to eligible people in Ontario through Cancer Care Ontario’s organized colon cancer screening program, ColonCancerCheck.   Getting checked for colon cancer just got easier with the introduction of the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) in Ontario. The free test is now available to eligible people in Ontario through Cancer Care Ontario’s organized colon cancer screening program, ColonCancerCheck. FIT is a simple, safe and accurate at-home test that checks stool for tiny amounts of blood, which could be caused by colon cancer and/or pre-cancerous polyps (growths in the colon or rectum) that can turn into cancer over time. The FIT is for men and women ages 50 - 74 who have no symptoms and no family history of colorectal cancer. The test is to be completed every two years. FIT replaces the fecal occult blood test (FOBT) that required patients to collect stool samples on three separate days and avoid certain foods and medications before the test.
  • The new test has many advantages:
  •  FIT is better at detecting colon cancer and pre-cancerous polyps;
  •  FIT is more user-friendly because it includes an easy-to-use collection device;
  •  FIT requires only one stool sample; and
  • When completing FIT, there are no medication or dietary restrictions (including vitamin C).
“We hope that this easy-to-do test will lead to more people being screened,” says Dr. Tamara Siddall, Erie St. Clair Regional Primary Care Lead. “Getting screened increases the chance of finding colorectal cancer early, when it is smaller and easier to treat. When caught early, nine out of 10 people can be cured.” In Ontario, Colorectal cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second most common cause of cancer deaths. It is estimated that in 2018, about 11,595 people in Ontario were diagnosed with colorectal cancer and about 3,359 people in Ontario died from the disease. JEV Marketing & Communications is helping to promote the new screening test locally to encourage eligible individuals to be screened. Gasper Faraci, who is President of the company and a colorectal cancer survivor, created a campaign for the Erie St. Clair Regional Cancer Program free of charge. “I know firsthand how important early detection is when dealing with a cancer diagnosis. It is my hope that the awareness generated by this campaign will encourage more people to get screened,” says Faraci. The marketing campaign featuring “Sam the Poop Emoji” goes step-by-step through the easy-to-conduct test and encourages eligible people to get screened. WATCH: FIT test promotional video produced by JEV Marketing & Communications. To find out if you are eligible for the FIT, speak to your primary care provider or call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-828-9213. For more information on colon cancer screening in Ontario, visit Cancer Care Ontario - Screening for Colorectal Cancer.

Jackson Park Parking Lot Paving

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

The next phase of upgrades to Jackson Park will include repaving and expanding the main parking lot, from 45 spaces to nearly 100. The work will begin on July 2 and take until October to complete. Along with the pavingnew sanitary, storm and water supply services are also being added.   The upgrades will mean that access to the main parking lot off Tecumseh Road will be closed, but use of the park by pedestrians will not be affected. The southeast parking lot off McDougall Street will be unaffected by the construction and will remain open throughout. Along with the parking lot and infrastructure improvements, construction crews are also replacing the washrooms located along the entrance to the Queen Elizabeth II Sunken Gardens. The construction of the washroom building will be completed by mid August. To see the entire area being worked on, watch the video, Jackson Park Improvements (YouTube) that we released back in May.

Hot Summer Nights Fun Blast

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Some summer nights are so hot, even the wind can’t be bothered to move! What better time to head to the park with family and neighbours for a cooling fire truck sprinkler run, a visit with Sparky and a chance to meet Windsor Fire and Rescue Services and Fire Prevention staff for truck tours and fire safety information?  Windsor Fire & Rescue Services will be continuing their Hot Summer Nights Fun Blast tradition, visiting a different park in all ten wards each Thursday from 5:30-7:30 pm. Learn more atwww.windsorfire.com or follow us on Twitter, @WindsorFire1. We have new community partners on board this year too, taking advantage of the great opportunity to connect with the community. Residents have the chance to go over some lifesaving tips and reminders, while getting acquainted with Windsor Fire and Rescue staff. Kids can check out the fire trucks, participate in hand-on activities and ask any fire safety questions. The firefighters will be grilling hotdogs and providing water for free to those who attend on a first come first serve basis.
