Food cupboard demand growing in Barrhaven Students from 16 schools thanked for ‘major support’ NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Joanne Robb has seen demand jump at the Barrhaven Food Cupboard, and she believes the recession may be the cause. “There have been more families,” she said. “It seemed to be when we noticed the increase was when the economy went bad.” Robb, who is the school food drive co-ordinator, said students across Barrhaven have helped keep shelves at the food cupboard stocked. She said elementary and high school students and their enthusiastic food drives show they care about their community. “We get major support from the schools,” she said, adding the Barrhaven Food Cupboard has received support in one form or another from 16 schools. As the school year winds

down, she thinks it’s important to recognize the kids for their efforts. It’s also important to note that as students head out on vacation, their valuable donations dry up. “Our shelves run low in the summer,” Robb said, adding that’s when cash donations from throughout the year are used to buy groceries for those in need. If you can help, there are donation boxes at Loblaws, Sobeys, Food Basics and the Your Independent Grocer. VOLUNTEERS The Barrhaven Food Cupboard appreciates the tremendous support from our community. As an organization run entirely by volunteers, the food cupboard always has a pressing need for volunteers, particularly those willing to take a more active role in the food cupboard’s work. Interested residents can call 613-825-4505 and leave a message and one of the committee members. To request food, call 613825-4505, ext. 2 and leave your full name, address and phone number.

Farmer to challenge Thompson in Osgoode ward

Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week - JUNE 10 2010

Green bin program headlines Scharfe’s campaign agenda CELEBRATE GRAND OPENING!

DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

Mark Scharfe clearly subscribes to the theory that if you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself. The Ramsayville Road farmer has decided to run for councillor in the Osgoode ward after disagreeing with incumbent Doug Thompson’s stance on the green bid program. The site for the program was built on Hawthorne and Rideau roads, but Scharfe felt that the proper environmental and industrial bylaws were not taken under consideration. At town hall meeting at Fred Barrett Arena, despite strong opposition, Scharfe said that Thompson wouldn’t change his stance. “Everyone told the councillor not to support the green bid,” he said. “It’s a multi-million-dollar waste of money. He wouldn’t turn. “At the end of the day, my position is that the councillor has to represent what the majority of the people want. That’s not what’s happened with this green bin.” Scharfe felt that the program was warranted for a number of reasons. He said 70 per cent of the compost content is made up of moisture when it arrives at the site. Therefore spending $93 per tonne for an 80,000-tonne load is a large pill to shallow. “Water takes up no space at the landfill,” Scharfe said. “It either evaporates or gets pressed out. “Not only that, but the city is responsible for paying the trucking, the start-up costs, and the contact says that we have to supply 80,000 tonnes to the plant, and if we don’t we have to pay anyway. “I don’t know how any business would sign a contract like that.” Scharfe added that the area shouldn’t have used because of a Gloucester zon-

MARK SCHARFE ing bylaw, which was put in place in large part to protect drinking water from nearby quarries. “To put a compost site that contains cat faeces right next to three of the biggest rock quarries in Ottawa is ridiculous,” he said, noting that people on Rideau Road now have to drink water out of wells. “It doesn’t make sense environmentally or fiscally.” As a beef farmer whose family has owned their properly for 100 years, Scharfe said he cannot use the compost because no one is really sure what’s in the mix. In addition to his stance on the green bid program, Scharfe added that he is not in favour of electric rail, tree-cutting bylaws, garbage dumping policing, and excessive pay to city managers. “I have quite a bit to offer the community as a potential candidate,” he said, adding that his has 30 years experience with the Ottawa police. Scharfe said will not be accepting any donations from big businesses because he doesn’t want to be held accountable to anyone. He has rented a booth at the Metcalfe Fair in October as well. Anyone interested in contacting Scharfe about his campaign can contact him at 613-822-0482.

Longfields plans include ‘streetscape’ NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Longfields Drive will get the look of a downtown if plans proposed by Paquette Planning Associates Ltd. are approved by the city. Paquette is planning for residential developments on a total of about 50 hectares of land on both sides of Longfields, near Pierre Elliot Trudeau French public elementary school. Along with townhouses, the plans call for some retail-residential mixed-use buildings to form a streetscape along Longfields. The mixed-use buildings will be built right to the sidewalk, with retail on the ground floor, reminiscent of the Glebe or Westboro. “It has an urban look to it,” said Daniel Paquette of Paquette Planning. Part of the plan includes a small land swap between the developer and Pierre Elliot Trudeau school. The swap will allow the school to create a larger play area next to its basketball courts, while Paquette will be able to construct a future street in a preferred location within the new development. “It allows the school to take a

squarer shape,” Paquette said, adding the new shape of the residential lots mean it will be possible to build new homes on both sides of a proposed street. Before construction can begin, the city must approve a zoning bylaw amendment to permit changes to the type of residential development on the different lots that make up the 50-hectare plan. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said the Longfields subdivision is a demonstration community that incorporates many of the smart growth principles found in the city’s official plan. “The intent of the subdivision plan is to promote a compact, mixed-use, mixed density residential community on a modified grid road network for pedestrians, cyclists, and offering convenient access to an integrated rapid transit station, neighbourhood convenience uses and an array of public parks,” she wrote in an email while out of town late last week. Harder added that the neighbourhood adjacent to the transit station is geared towards young couples, empty nesters and singles looking for affordable housing options within walking distance of services, making it less auto-oriented and more pe-

Greely ready to stretch eastwards NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Retail, new homes, a park and two lakes are on the drawing board and Sunset Lakes Developments (SLD) is ready to build on Greely’s eastern perimeter, across Bank Street from the sprawling village. The company’s proposal is called Greely Village Centre, and will take up most of the triangle of land bordered by Bank Street, Parkway Road and Sale Barn Road. SLD’s Dan Anderson said the mixed-use development will have a village setting that will reduce the reliance on cars. The company is focusing on “walkability,” including trails and a promenade around the man-made lakes. Anderson said the development will include 60 to 70 residential lots plus 19 hectares of retail and six hectares of park that will be conveyed to the city. A further four hectares zoned for arena, pool or tennis, but Anderson said a public-private partnership will probably be required to get a facility built. “We need a community group to lobby or raise money,” Anderson said of the possible recreation site. “It would be a huge benefit for Greely.” Plans show about 60 housing lots arranged around one lake on the east side of the property. A shopping centre is located next to the intersection of Bank Street and Parkway Road, adjacent to a smaller second pond called Greely Centre Lake.

Each home will have private well and septic, while the retail will have a communal wastewater system that is still awaiting final approval. Once that is OK’d, construction can begin. Anderson said local retail will provide closer shopping for Greely residents, many of whom drive to the city to do their shopping. Plans are for eight retail buildings: some of them multitenant, and ranging from 700 to 3,600 square metres in size. He said there will be no big box stores but expects professional offices and a grocery store. Gill Toll, president of the Greely Community Association, said there was some local resistance

when the plans for Greely Village Centre were first unveiled. After the Ontario Municipal Board approved construction, the community has come to accept the plans, she said, and many appreciate that SLD will include public access to pathways that will be built within the new development. She added that residents are interested to see what kind of retail might pop up and she said that new stores will mean employment possibilities, especially for young Greely residents “Greely could use a little more retail,” Toll said. “Everybody could use another doctor, and the local vet is fully booked.”

EDITORIAL

Run day almost here

Relay for Life offers hope to those in need Each June, something big and special happens. What began as a fundraising event has grown into a magical celebration of life, a night of resolve to make a difference, continue to raise support and one night a year in which to formally remember those who have lost their battles with cancer. Yes, it’s Relay for Life time again. Participation involves walking in an inspirational 12-hour overnight event, as communities come together and fight to make cancer history. Without going into detail about how the Canadian Cancer Society needs this type of work for financial assistance, and how more research is needed to help eliminate the disease, simply put, the relay has grown into being one of the largest organized summer events in the entire region. But the relay is about more than facts associated with the disease. The feeling out there on that one night a year isn’t easy to put into words. Openness, mixed with urgency, coupled with an elation of being a part of the event, but still shrouded with the dark truth that not everyone is a survivor. It’s sad in this day in age that cancer has touched the lives of almost everyone in some way. That drives home the importance of such an event - not only to raise money, but to foster hope and support when dealing with a very scary reality. It is special to have such a large-scale event on the local scene and it should be celebrated, whether though participation, sponsorship or through stopping by at some point during the festivities to offer morale support. Kudos to the organizers, who have spent months planning this: your efforts will not go unnoticed. This Friday, something big and special will undoubedly happen again.

Residents have the right to stand up to Lansdowne Park development To the editor: As a child of 13, I remember going to city planning meetings to push for a basketball court at Lansdowne Park. It’s there now (in the northeast corner) and heavily used. My family has been active for decades in fighting for the character of a really livable community. We’ve been around this issue for a lifetime and are invested in its outcome. Speaking of investment, Glebe residents pay very high property taxes and don’t get much city-owned recreational space in return. Apparently paying $500 a month in property taxes doesn’t qualify you to take an active interest in local development, it makes you a whiner. How much would you enjoy being powerless to stop a development of this size in your neighbourhood? Speaking of powerless, this plan neuters public management in favour

of private interests. Instead of the public managing public resources it would transfer the management to an outside private entity that will derive the benefit from management. OSEG is a separate legal entity formed for the purpose, which means no liabilities for its shareholders but plenty of opportunity for dividends. It has the right to rent-free retail, stadium, hotel and office commercial land for 30 years. It has the right to assign all these rights to a co-developer/co-tenant. What that means is that it can sell its rights to the highest bidder, make money off of the building and refurbishment of the stadium, disburse the profits to the shareholders, run a money-losing franchise for a couple of years for show and then walk away claiming the economics just aren’t there anymore. I understand that for some of you,

the idea of one more shot at an Ottawa football franchise is appealing. Maybe some additional retail in the downtown core is interesting. And some additional green space you can visit now and then is a draw. But before you back this development, understand the real choice you are making. You are backing the arbitrary transfer of city land to private developers selected by non-elected officials behind closed doors. You are supporting the trampling of local community rights in favour of outside interests, ignoring the taxes paid in over generations. You are OK with potentially destroying communities that have been built up over time and with great care with rushed through plans whose impact will last generations.

No mandatory water saving yet STAFF Rideau Valley river and stream flows are well below normal for this time of year due to the low precipitation since January. The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) says this year’s average precipitation at weather stations around the Rideau watershed is 76 per cent of the normal amount for the first five months of 2010. The impact on stream flows has been significant. Normal flows for the end of May on the Rideau River in Ottawa are about 32 cubic metres per second (CMS). The flow on May 31 was 8.8 CMS.

On the Jock River, flows are less than one-sixth of normal. Kemptville Creek and the Tay River had similar situations with flows well below normal for the end of May. The rainfall this week could stop the decline in flow and, should there be enough runoff, cause an increase in flows toward normal for the time of year. However, RVCA staff will continue to monitor conditions and, should it be warranted, will issue notice of the declaration of Level 1 low water conditions as part of the Ontario low water response program. At that level, voluntary water conservation measures are recommended. Should Level 2 and 3 conditions occur, mandatory cutbacks may have to be imposed. The last time the RVCA issued a Level 1 low water declaration was in September 2005.

Fire Hydrants: Testing for your Safety This summer, the City of Ottawa will be testing municipal fire hydrants on various streets throughout your community.

Police officers will patrol city parks and enforce curfew during the spring and summer months as part of the youth engagement strategy, which was launched on Friday, June 4. Ottawa police plan to deploy officers – including bicycle patrols – throughout the summer to target complaints of criminal activity and disorderly youth. Bylaw officers will also patrol problem parks and enforce violations of city bylaws, such as noise complaints and restricted access between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. The City of Ottawa’s Youth on the Move program will also focus on engaging teens to foster increased respect and understanding between youths and their

communities. Outreach workers will frequent city parks from June to the end of August and will meet regularly with police and bylaw officers. Engaging youth through recreation, education and outreach is part of the program’s goals. Police are asking Ottawa residents to report ongoing youth problems in park areas to help identify emerging trends and problem areas. Where applicable, parents will be held accountable for their children’s actions through the enforcement of curfew and restitution for damage. The summer initiative builds on the experience of last year’s youth engagement strategy.

Community Calendar Deadline is Monday at 9:30 a.m. E-mail news@yourottawasouth.com. or news@yourbarrhaven.com

Navigating Roundabouts.

JULY 17

The City of Ottawa is installing more and more roundabouts. Roundabouts are actually pretty simple to use and, more importantly, safer than traditional intersections. Because navigating roundabouts is new to many residents of Ottawa, the following tips will help steer you in the right direction. TIPS FOR DRIVERS • Reduce your speed when approaching a roundabout. • Watch for pedestrians and cyclists and be prepared to stop if necessary. • When approaching a roundabout, you will see a yield sign and a thick painted dashed line (yield line). Look to the left for approaching traffic within the roundabout and be prepared to stop. Vehicles in the roundabout have the right of way. • If another vehicle is stopped at the yield line, do not stop on the crosswalk. Keep the crosswalk clear for pedestrians. • Enter the roundabout when there is an acceptable gap in traffic. • Once in the roundabout, you have the right of way over all entering traffic. • Do not attempt to overtake other vehicles, including bicycles. • As you approach your exit, use your right turn signal to indicate your exit. • As you exit the roundabout, maintain your slow speed and watch for pedestrians and cyclists. For tips for pedestrians and cyclists or to learn about navigating two-lane roundabouts, please visit ottawa.ca/roundabouts. Ad # 09-2083-8829 | 394308

BY ANDREA JERMACANS The Osgoode Village Community Association is calling all volunteers, vendors, and sponsors for its Third Annual Medieval Festival this summer. This July 9, 10 and 11, the Village of Osgoode will transform itself into the glorious and brutal Medieval Kingdom of Osgoode - an enchanted place where maidens wear flower circlets and knights best each other with chivalry and swords. The year is 1199 and a new King and Queen (played by locals Brent and Natalie Currie) hold court. And Medieval Organizer, Judy Carey, expects that the royal couple will reign over Osgoode’s most prosperous festival to date. “In 2008 we had about 800 attendees and last year there were about 2500,” she says. “For the 2010 festival we are expecting up to 5000 people.” While time-tested favourites, such as live music throughout the grounds, food merchants, and vendors peddling every-

The Ottawa Public Library’s Barrhaven Branch, Ruth E. Dickinson, is hosting a two-part information series that will equip all starting or planning a homebased business with the information they need to get their business up and running. There is a trend in the fastgrowing Barrhaven population to running home-based businesses. Many want to make sure that their home-based business is following the rules and regulations; others want to know specific information about how to start their business. We offered this series at Alta Vista library in January, with a great response. We expect the series will be popular in Barrhaven, too. This series is being presented in partnership with the Entrepreneurship Centre, who have had a kiosk open in Ruth E. Dickinson Library since last July. The maximum number of registrants will be 30. Registration is necessary, and can be done by phoning 613-5802424 ext. 32140. Information Sessions in Barrhaven at Ruth E. Dickinson Branch, 100 Malvern Drive, Thursdays, June 10 and 17, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Part 1: Things you need to Consider--rules & regulations, registration, taxes, finances Part 2: Business Planning and Marketing.

thing from jewelry to swords will still be available all weekend, the festival has expanded. “Its popularity has grown and we’ve decided to add an extra day to the 2010 Festival – an Education Day for children.” School teacher Maureen Silva will head up this program and lead kids up to age 14 through demonstrations of sword play, belly dancing, archery, and music. “The program will run on Friday and is geared toward summer camps and school-aged children,” says Carey. But the fun is for adults as much as the kids and many come decked in their snazziest Medieval duds. “You certainly don’t have to dress in period costume to attend but many do,” Carey admits. “Some are in armour, some in royal finery, wenches come dressed in peasant blouses and skirts. There are crowns and circlets, leggings and chain mail,” she says. “It’s an eclectic mix. Even the children come dressed in costume. But many also come in shorts and T-shirts.”

The City of Ottawa’s Green Acres program is the proud patron of one million vigorous new native trees planted in the rural parts of the city over the past ten years. This milestone was reached during the Spring planting season which ended in May. The Green Acres program started in 2000 as a partnership between the City of Ottawa, Ottawa’s three Conservation Authorities and the Ottawa Stewardship Council. The results are overwhelming with one million trees planted, 460 hectares reforested and 1,087 land owners served. And even more impressive is that these trees will reach free-to-grow status because the city and its partners go that extra step to provide monitoring and maintenance of the Green Acres plantings. Each of these one million trees is a little environmental cleaning station. Each one cleans the air, cleans the water, enriches the soil, provides wildlife habitat and life-giving oxygen and helps prevent soil erosion. Multiply that by one million and you have some very significant community benefits for a long time for a small investment. “The City of Ottawa’s commitment to supporting

Council Notes Glenn Brooks Rideau-Goulbourn 150th Celebrations in Manotick: This year Dickinson Days were special. It was the Mill’s 150th anniversary. The Friday night parade, the firefighters competition, children’s entertainment under the big top, the fireworks were all huge successes. Saturday was a great day of celebration: the vendors were out in full force as were the crowds, the stage performers – singers and dancers were greatly appreciated by the crowd. Gary Montgomery’s antique engine’s, weaving, knitting were attractions back to another era. Thus, to all those who made it happen and especially to the Kiwanis Club of Manotick, many thanks for a wonderful weekend. And to the big Man upstairs, thank you for the weather on Friday and Saturday. 613- 580-2424 ext. 31310

and investing in tree planting is greatly appreciated,” said Alan Arbuckle, chair of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. “To my knowledge, the City of Ottawa’s investment in green infrastructure is second to none in Ontario. We congratulate the city for their vision and their commitment to a healthy urban and rural environment.” The program helps cover up to 50 per cent of the costs for the tree seedlings, site preparation, planting and

tending. It also provides landowners with technical advice and guidance. Now is the time to prepare for the 2011 spring planting season. Interested rural landowners with one acre of land or more and willing to plant a minimum of 500 trees are encouraged to contact the LandOwner Resource Centre at 613-692-3571 or 1-800-267-3504, ext.1128 or 1132 and see if they are eligible for the Green Acres program.

Trustee remembered with place of ‘peace and serenity’ Neighbouring schools honour Alex Getty JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Grade 1 students at Parkwood Hills Public School enjoyed a strawberry freezie on June 3, even if they didn’t understand the significance. The flavour – a favourite of late Ottawa Carleton District School Board trustee Alex Getty – was given to the kids as part of a day that honoured the dedicated educator. While the freezies may melt, the garden cove memorial that was unveiled the same day will stand as a permanent reminder of the man who dedicated himself to kids and their education. The beautification project was a partnership between two schools, their par-

ent councils and the City of Ottawa. The garden area in the Sir Winston Churchill Public School yard was completed during a ceremony at the school attended by the students from Sir Winston Churchill and neighbouring Parkwood Hills Public School. “Thank you so much for honouring my dad in this way,” Getty’s daughter Susan said. “My dad loved gardens; the peace and serenity of them.” Getty died on April 26, 2009, at the age of 63 after a sudden heart attack. He was survived by his wife Rita, his children, grandchildren and his mother Jean. “It was such a shame,” Jean said. “He was such a good boy. And so young.” Getty emigrated from Glasgow, Scotland, and started his career as the representative for Barrhaven/ Knoxdale-Merivale on the school board after 31 years with the Canada Revenue Agency. See ‘Garden’ page 13

Garden ‘a real legacy’ Continued from page 12 Whether it was one-liners or stories of his golfing escapades, board chair Cathy Curry said that Getty has been missed around the board table at meetings. “He seemed very gruff, but he always made me laugh,” she said. “I miss him a great deal.” Billy Jane Kearns, a Grade 8 student at Sir Winston Churchill, prepared a speech about Getty’s life and personality with the help of his wife Rita. “Alex paid particular attention to the students in the middle – not the ones who

needed a lot of extra help, or the ones that are really bright – the middle ones that tend to get forgotten about,” she said. “They were his passion.” The garden was something planned over a year with representatives from the board, the parents’ councils and the city. Sir Winston Churchill vice-principal Rebecca Shields said that she hoped the new garden would remind the students to take the time out now to tell their friends and family how much they appreciate them. “This is the chance for the school to have a real legacy,” she said.

Jets hope spring, summer camps will help team soar DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

The Metcalfe Jets are hoping to build on the success they had at the end last season when they hold the first of their spring and summer camps June 12 and 13 at Leitrim Arena. After going undefeated in the last three weeks in Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League (EOJHL) play, team president George Giroux wants to continue to stimulate positive results. The first two-day camp will involve fitness and scrimmage for up to four hockey teams, with the idea of getting more players onto the ice. There will be an off-ice session later in the month and other camp in August before the team is picked at the end of that month. “They don’t usually fill up, but the players get more ice than they can handle,” Giroux said. “Some of them have rusty skates at this time of year.” Giroux expects to see two types of players: those who have been out before and hopeful of earning a spot on the team, as well as those younger players just looking for a taste of EOJHL action in the future. It’s the 15- and 16-year-old player that the camp is tailored toward. “We’re trying to motivate the players to continue and improve themselves,” Giroux said. “They’ll see that we’re serious about our hockey program and they’ll see that there’s a lot of competition out

The 2009-10 Metcalfe Jets are hoping to improve on a late-season surge starting in September. there. They’ll see what they have to do to play at this level.” The Jets finished last in the league’s tough Metro Division with 35 points, but Giroux feels they have been improving in each of the last three years in the MetroValley Conference. The team officially serves the communities of Osgoode, Manotick, Metcalfe, and Russell regions, but the organization can gather players from anywhere it chooses. While the team has athletes from places like Sudbury

and even the United States, Giroux said nearly 70 per cent of the team was comprised of locally-born players – the highest in the EOJHL. “The idea is to promote hockey and the participation of as many local players who think they have the stuff or want to measure themselves to see what they need to do to get ready for real tryouts in the following year,” Giroux said. The Jets will play 40 regular season contests next season starting in September, plus two as part of a showcase event September 19 and 20.

Congratulations to the OSU women’s Force squad who travelled to Kingston to participate in a very reputable competitive men’s and women’s soccer tournament and were able to bring home the women’s competitive tournament cham-

pionship. Losing 2-1 in the first game to the threetime defending champion Kingston women’s team from the Toronto-based OWSL, the squad put themselves together and never looked back. The Force girls went

on to defeat Pickering West Shore FC 2-0 and then played the Ottawa Internationals women’s premier to a 1-1 draw, seeding them second behind Kingston. With a second hot and sunny day upon the tournament, the OSU Women’s Force went into Sunday’s playoff with a reduced 13-player roster. The semifinal saw OSU up against the previously undefeated FC Laurentides team from Quebec. The result was a solid 3-0 win. With Kingston winning the other semifinal, this set up for a rematch of the tournament’s opening game. In a hard-fought

2 for 1

and balanced game, the OSU women’s Force squad were able capitalize midway through the first half and continued to play hard to turn out a 1-0 victory final. Congratulations to Taylor, Elsa, Alyssa, Sam, Heather, Diane, Morena, Alex, Erin, Jen, Melissa, Michelle, as well as guest player Christina D. and OSU 93G call-ups Jessica, Steph and Amanda. Almost all players are OSU youth graduates and are or will be playing at the university level. They all currently play with either the OSU U21G Force in the ERSL tier 1 or with our OSU women’s Force in the OCSL top premier division.

Dickinson Days 2010

Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week -JUNE 10 2010

Manotick’s 150th anniversary was celebrated in style with Dickinson Days last weekend. A parade and community events - like the annual Kiwanis Catch and Release Fishing Derby had kids reeling in good times. “It’s all about the kids. It’s a great success for kids to catch something small, even a fish six inches long will put a smile of pride on a child’s face,” said Brian Chrome, a co-organizer with Dan Faubert and Kiwanis member.
