As of June 1st, 2007, the Cornwall Ramada Inn and Conference Centre is completely smoke-free.

"The majority of our rooms have alway been non-smoking, this just takes it a step further", said Scott Lecky, General Manager. "Cornwall, like many Ontario municipalities, passed a bylaw banning smoking inside many public establishments, so most of our guests have not only expected this step, but are also embracing it."

The new policy essentially means that any smoking must be undertaken outside of the hotel.

There's a tired old myth about Cornwall, one that suggests this city, nestled alongside the majestic St. Lawrence River, has challenges with respect to its air quality. As so often happens with myths, they tend not to tell the real story. Such is the case with Cornwall.

Contrary to the myth, Cornwall boasts air quality that rivals many Ontario communities. The Ministry of Environment provides a daily summary of air quality for close to 40 centres across the province on its Air Quality Index (http://www.airqualityontario.com/reports/summary.cfm).

A visit to the site reveals a positive pattern. Cornwall consistently ranks as one of the top 10 communities in Ontario for the quality of its air. In fact, since June, Cornwall's air quality has ranked above average, generally scoring in the top 10 communities across the province.

With its Gerald Parisien Community Energy Facility, a co-generation plant, EcoGardens, and the globally recognized St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences, Cornwall is an environmentally aware community. Its Clean Air Cornwall initiative administered by the River Institute continually works with local industries to assist them in utilizing techniques that helps maintain the city's clean air profile.

The outcome? Throughout the Cornwall region, people breathe easy and it?s one more reason why the community is a good place to operate a business and to enjoy the lifestyle.

The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) will require all travelers to and from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Bermuda to present a passport or other accepted document that establishes the bearer's identity and nationality to enter or re-enter the United States. The goal is to strengthen border security and facilitate entry into the United States for U.S. citizens and legitimate international travelers.

Effective January 2007: U.S. citizens traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda will be required to present a valid U.S. passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document.

Effective January 1, 2008: It is anticipated that on January 1, 2008, U.S. citizens traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea (including ferries), may be required to present a valid U.S. passport or other documents as determined by the Department of Homeland Security. While recent legislative changes permit a later deadline, the Departments of State and Homeland Security are working to meet all requirements as soon as possible. Ample advance notice will be provided to enable the public to obtain passports or passport cards for land/sea entries.

Note: This will not affect travel between the United States and its territories. U.S. citizens traveling directly between the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa will continue to be able to use established forms of identification to board flights and for entry.
