Life insurance is a basic ingredient of successful financial and estate planning. When you die, insurance can provide financial security for your family. But with so many types of policies available, how do you choose? The first thing you should know is that life insurance is divided into two broad categories: term insurance and permanent insurance. Both pay beneficiaries a tax-free death benefit if you die while the policy is in force. 

What are the things that make a community special? What are things that promote a sense of belonging, of safety and of community pride? I believe these are questions that need to be explored and answered over the next four years. We have in the past talked about maintaining our small town feel. What exactly does that mean? For me it means a place where I know my neighbors, where people speak to one another with respect and kindness; it is a place that offers a sense of comfort, and a sense of peace and security. It has very little to do with the number of people in the community or the amount of development. It has to do with a sense of place and a sense of belonging.

I am grateful to the electors in Ward 1 for the privilege of serving you, and I humbly and respectfully ask for your vote to continue to represent you in the coming term.

Over the past 10 weeks I have engaged Pelham’s voters both online and in person to find out the issues that are most important to you. I did this because I believe the Regional Councillor position should be reflective of the issues, not determined by the person filling the role. Political representation should be just that – representation. 

The Town of Pelham is pleased to welcome Jason Marr as its new director of public works. A graduate of Queen’s University and professional engineer, Marr’s professional experience spans 20-plus years across various scopes and responsibilities.

The key to a flattering hairstyle is one that creates the illusion that you have a perfectly oval face. There are cuts that help make a round face appear longer, a long face appear wider, a square jaw appear softer and large foreheads and double chins basically disappear.

Let’s harness our positive Pelham momentum and energy and infuse it into Niagara Regional Council.

This election I ask for your support to work together on what matters across all of the Niagara Peninsula.

Future development always causes concern within a community. The two remaining large tracts for development in our community are the East Fonthill lands and the East Fenwick development area. The East Fonthill area is underway and developments are being serviced at this time. There are still several that need to come forward for approval and are at various stages of the process. Council needs to be mindful of the current community and the goals of the new development; not to undermine what we have but to add to it and to enhance it.

“Hi, I’m Michael Jacques.” With these four words, our most recent guest speaker (along with his dad, Marcel) blew us away with his story of overcoming adversity to become an impressive community leader, not only for Pelham, but for several great service organizations as well.
