Provincial Issues Have Local Impact in North Pickering

Elections Ontario 2018


Provincial Issues Have Local Impact in North Pickering
Residents Tutor New Cast of Candidates in Pickering-Uxbridge

Whitevale, ON, June 3, 2018: Thursday will mark the 13th provincial election since the North Pickering expropriation of 1972. The controversy surrounding these lands continues even decades after families were stripped of their homes and hopes by both the federal and provincial governments of the day.

“The governments have changed but the issues remain the same,” says Sandy Rider, long-time resident of Whitevale, “it’s almost as if the governments hope the issues will be forgotten as we die away – but in North Pickering that will never be the case!”

In an effort to ensure that these issues are not forgotten, the Whitevale & District Resi...

Meet the 2018 Provincial Election Candidates

Elections Ontario 2018

Mark your calendars neighbours!  The Whitevale & District Residents’ Association (WDRA) is proud to host a “Meet the Candidates” evening on June 5th at 7:30 pm.

As we all know, Whitevale continues to be situated at the heart of so many provincial issues and the WDRA believes it’s essential that we hear first-hand from the candidates, their views on the issues most important to us.  This informal ‘mix & mingle’ event (including refreshments) is meant to be a casual, non-combative opportunity for everyone to ask their questions either one-on-one or in a group (no speeches, statements or grandstanding).

Here’s what you need to know:

Date: Tuesday, June 5, 2018

Time: 7:30 pm

Location: Whitevale Community Centre

We’re pleased to report that “almost” all candidates of the Pickering-Uxbridge ri...

2018 Whitevale Easter Egg Hunt


The annual Whitevale Easter Egg hunt was again enjoyed by all. From the hand-crafted baskets to the community-made chocolate eggs, the activities spanned the entire week culminating in the big hunt at the park. The festivities started the Sunday before where the children and their parents gathered at the community centre to create their baskets – there are clearly some very creative minds developing in our village. Later in the week, folks (young and not so-young) gathered at the community centre once again to whip together a mix of butter, cream cheese, icing sugar and chocolate to create the much sought after treats. It was a terrific opportunity for the next generation to learn the traditional way to make the these old-time favourites.

Finally the day of the hunt! Although the morning w...
