The recent British Columbia Court decision of Cottrill v. Utopia Day Spas and Salons Ltd., 2017 BCSC 704, (which principles would equally apply in Ontario), is a harsh reminder that employers need to proceed with great caution before terminating an employee for poor performance. The employee in Cottrill was a skincare therapist. She provided facials, pedicures and various other like treatments for clients of her employer.

Chances are, there is a characteristic of your property that everyone remembers, appreciates, and maybe even envies. It could be a spacious kitchen with an island and upgraded appliances... or a stunning backyard with a wrap-around deck and beautiful landscaping... or rustic hardwood floors that contrast with elegant, high-end ceramics.
Whatever it is about your property that people tend to like and remember, will also appeal to potential buyers. So, when listing your home for sale, we make sure to emphasize that characteristic.

Paul Allen finished his year as president by naming four Paul Harris Fellows for their contributions to the wider Pelham community.

The Pelham Medical Associates Peewee Rep team continued their undefeated record in leauge play this week with victories over Welland and Beamsville. A solid hit by rookie Jake Kalailieff, followed up by good base running contributed some much needed fire power.  A stunning unassisted double play by Lucas Grant ended the close Welland game to the gasps of the crowd. Excitement mounted as the team started play in the Saugeen Shores weekend tournament. Ethan Wells was awarded MVP of the opener with a shut out, complete game against Corunna. Although a nail biter, Pelham was victorious against the home town team with Nate Girling taken the mound. To complete pool play, Pelham tied Woodstock with Will Baltrusiunas leading the offensive charge. With attention turned to the semi-finals, Pelham faced off against Collingwood and took the win 9-5. Excellent catching with an "out at the plate" and clinch hitting by Wyatt Gibson and a strong outing from battery mate Ryan Culig. With victory one win away, Pelham faced off against tournament rivals, Woodstock for a second time. Determined to prevail this time, MVP Jake Passmore made two difficult plays from short stop and shored up the offense with reliable hard hits and RBIs. Centre fielder, Cole Townson, not only made his usual beautiful catches but added to the excitement with a strike throw to the pitcher to catch the runner off second base for an inning ending surprise out. Two clutch hits by Jake Laewetz drove in more runs and smart at bats by Tyler Hunter and Owen Nicholls secured the 8-5 win and the tournament gold!

If you pay your property taxes by installments, you will know that your third installment of your 2017 property tax bill comes due on Friday. With this deadline, why not “take stock” of Pelham’s property taxes and compare with other Cities and Towns? You will recall that the amount of property tax you pay to the Town of Pelham, to the Region, and to the Province (for Education) is not solely based on the Market Value Assessment of your property by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC); one must multiply your assessment by each of these three tax rates and add them up for your total bill.

They need as much care as your skin and hair to make them look their best. Brows express our thoughts and accent our speech.
