South Ottawa scores big with 6 soccer fields Half-dozen pitches, fieldhouse part of future plans NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

One of the province’s most respected soccer clubs is about to take a giant step, and footie players will be the big winners. Four new soccer fields are sprouting grass near Manotick, and two of those pitches should be ready for dribbles, shots and saves by next summer. There will also be a fieldhouse for players to use during the 2011 season. The George Nelms Sports Park is the result of a 15-year agreement between the City of Ottawa and Ottawa South United (OSU), the largest soccer organization in the community. City council is expected to approve the deal within weeks. Two fields are already in use on the 13-hectare plot of land, on the south side of Mitch Owens Road, between River and Dozois roads, right next to St. Mark Catholic High School. The grass on the four additional fields is growing now. The demand for soccer fields has outstripped supply for a number of years, resulting in leagues and teams having to turn away potential members. “That’s been the case for a while,” said OSU president Bill Michalopulos. “This will help alleviate that challenge as the sport grows in popularity.” See ‘Footie’ page 3

399 charges for impaired driving and cycling safety in June ers who did not respect the zero tolerance conditions of their licences. FOUR RIDES Four IRSP/CAA-sponsored RIDE initiatives were conducted in June. Approximately 2,500 vehicles were stopped, three drivers were charged with impaired driving and 12 driver’s licences were suspended.

The cycling safety initiative included an educational component in addition to the enforcement. Hundreds of cycling safety information pamphlets were handed out at Ottawa’s higher-risk locations for vehicle-cyclist collisions. Each month since 2004, STEP has been profiling and enforcing two initiatives that target specific traffic safety priorities.

committee voted in favour of the OSU agreement on July 8, and city council was expected to give final approval on July 14, after Barrhaven-Ottawa South This Week went to press. FIELDHOUSE

MAINTENANCE DEAL The four new fields have been developed at OSU’s cost, but maintenance of the four new pitches will now fall to the city. As part of the proposed agreement, OSU will maintain and have exclusive use of the two existing fields and the city will be free to rent out the four new soccer pitches. Floodlights are not part of the plans; Michalopulos said they don’t add a lot of playing time during our sunny summer evenings. The only hitches identified in the proposal are vehicle related. A new turn lane may be required on Mitch Owens, and additional parking will be required, or some parking deal struck with the Catholic school board for use of the St. Mark lot. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson said an agreement with St. Mark over parking is imminent, and the school will benefit by having access to the new fields. “These soccer fields are much needed,” Thompson said. “This is an area where soccer is taking off. I’m really pleased this is happening.” The city’s agriculture and rural affairs

Michalopulos said the plans for the fieldhouse are being drawn up now, and along with things like washrooms for the players, the building will become OSU’s new home. “That should help take us to the next level,” Michalopulos said. The club president added that OSU has been ranked as the best community soccer club in Ontario, and he considers the next step is to think nationally. “We want to be the best community club in Canada,” he said. The naming for George Nelms will be marked with a plaque on site. Nelms, who formerly owned the land where the new fields will be located, was mayor of Ottawa from 1957 to 1960. He died in 1999. Michalopulos said OSU has been working on the sports park concept for nearly a decade, calling it “a labour of love.” And once all six fields are open and 12 teams are into their games at the same time, Michalopulos said he’ll feel “unbelievably good.” “I will be proud,” he said, “and very happy for the community.”

Man survives five-day coma, lives to thank saviours Manotick firefighters and grocery workers praised for life-saving skills JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

A Manotick man will be celebrating his 45th wedding anniversary in August after nearly dying outside of a local grocery store on June 11. The 64-year-old father and grandfather gathered together at the Manotick Fire Hall with volunteer firefighters and an off-duty CHEO nurse on July 7 to thank them for giving him a new lease on life. “I just felt like a phone call wasn’t good enough,” he said. Ted Boyer, who can’t really remember the events of the day, was without vital signs by the time paramedics arrived.

TED BOYER

It was just a routine trip to the Robinson’s Your Independent Grocer with his wife Jackie to grab some topsoil for their garden when he collapsed face first on the pavement. It isn’t known whether it was the heat or the weight of the 30 bags of topsoil that triggered the heart attack, but Boyer is lucky to be alive. “It was a very ordinary morning,” Jackie said, but then he collapsed and his eyes were rolling around in his head. I knew when he lost control of his bodily functions that we were in trouble but then out of nowhere, miracles started happening.” James Olive, who works in the produce section of the store, came and started doing CPR, along with an off-duty CHEO nurse Ginny Meisner, who heard about the commotion while she was at the check out. Ottawa Fire Chief John deHooge stressed the importance of learning CPR, saying that the knowledge saves a lot of lives. Paul Hutt, sector chief at the Manotick Fire Station said it was wonderful to see Boyer doing so well. “Hearing his voice is like a kind of victory,” Hutt said. Boyer spent about five days in a coma at the Queensway Carleton Hospital and received surgery for the blocked artery that caused the heart attack and his collapse on that fateful day. Since his release he has lost 16 pounds and the family came together to finish the garden that he was set to work on

Jackie Boyer holds her granddaughter during a presentation at the Manotick Fire Hall on July 7. Boyer and her husband Ted were able to thank those responsible for saving Ted’s life outside of Robinson’s Your Independent Grocer on June 11. that day. “I knew we had to get it done before he got out,” Jackie said. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Glenn Brooks said the happy ending is thanks in part to the community-minded nature of rural residents. “This is a great example of what firefighters can do,” he said. “A lot of people think they are full time, but a lot are vol-

unteers or part-time, so we are lucky to have them.” For the Boyers, they are taking this experience to concentrate on the really important things. “When they (the paramedics) told me they had gotten a pulse that’s all I needed to hear,” Jackie said. “Because I never thought I would hear his voice again.”

Osgoode goes medieval

The Osgoode Medieval Festival last Saturday in Osgoode village captured much of the flavour of the times. Above, a lady archer tries her hand at hitting the bulls-eye.

A lance snaps in two as knights collide. The knights collide at an average combined speed of 60 kilometres per hour. The mounts used in the show are horses that have been rescued from the slaughterhouse or have been in retirement on farms. The jousting proved to be very popular with the Saturday afternoon crowd who declared their loyalty to their favourite knight with applause and cheers.

OPINION EDITORIAL

COMMUNITY

Province aims to strengthen cultural groups

Weather wimps When we look at the temperatures of a few decades ago, we’ve become weather wimps. Even though Ottawa is sweating for relief from this heat wave, the nation’s capital is still sitting cooler than it did in the good ol’ days. Temperatures have consistently soared above the 30 degrees mark over the past week or so causing residents to scramble for their air conditioning – or wish they had a unit. According to The Weather Network, the hottest July day on record was July 4, 1913 when temperatures hit a blistering 37.8 – without any help from the humidity. And we’re complaining about the heat we have now. Is it possible that we’re becoming wimps? Some studies suggest that air conditioners can have detrimental effects on the body, one of which is making it more difficult for a person to adjust and adapt to the heat. The inability to adjust to outdoor temperatures has been noticed in those who spend a lot of time in air conditioned climes. It’s been suggested that the stress of the drastic temperate change has lead to an increase in heat-related deaths. A study by Oxford University has also found a direct correlation between the use of air conditioners in the workplace and a rise in illnesses. The study suggests an increase of 40 per cent in sick days is related to air conditioning. Something to think about before cranking the a/c as Ottawa heads into another heat wave. Check out how July this year compares to 2009 and historic highs. Record temperatures July 5, 1897 — 36.1C July 6, 1912 — 35C July 7, 1921 — 36.7C July 8, 1897 — 36.1C July 9, 1911 — 35.6C 2009 temps July 5 — 24.8C July 6 — 22.5C

The organization that represents more than 65,000 researchers and academic staff at 122 universities and colleges across Canada wants the Conservative government to reconsider its decision to replace the mandatory long form census with a shorter voluntary survey. The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) is just one of several organizations protesting the decision announced recently, and wants Prime Minister Stephen Harper to sit down with a group of some of Canada’s top researchers to hear why the mandatory long form census must be restored. “As the organization that represents Canada’s academic research community, we are deeply concerned about the disastrous consequences this will have for the scientific understanding of Canadian society, and for the ability to

make informed decisions about social and economic policies,” said CAUT executive director James Turk. Turk says the current long form census is the only source of regular, highly detailed, systematic information on immigration, family and household structure, racialization, demography and other vital information about Canadians. NO COMMENT The government has confirmed publicly that no consultation was undertaken before the decision was made. “We’ve written to the prime minister to ask him to meet with a group of Canada’s top researchers to discuss why this decision must be reversed, and we hope he takes us up on the offer before it’s too late for next year’s Census,” Turk said.

The provincial government has launched the Community Capital Fund. The new program will support infrastructure projects for nonprofit organizations that serve cultural communities. The new Community Capital Fund will support infrastructure projects that help Ontario’s nonprofit organizations deliver important public services to diverse cultural communities. Diverse cultural communities rely heavily on non-profit organizations and their facilities. These include newcomer settlement services, multi-service community centres, performance venues, and cultural activity centres. Unfortunately, limited access to venues and cost barriers often prevent organizations from effectively delivering much needed services. Non-profit organizations currently receive funding for operating expenditures from various sources including government, philanthropic and private sector donors. However, they have inadequate access to funding for capital projects. The $50 million fund will be administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. It will be used to invest in projects that support cultural communities and help revitalize community-based infrastructure. Application forms, along with selection criteria, will be made available in September 2010. The program will fund up to 50 per cent of total project costs, with a minimum contribution of $20,000 and a maximum of $500,000 Projects must be completed by December 31, 2012.

The Muslim community of Bells Corners may be getting closer to having a place to realizing their dream of a community building thanks to the fundraising efforts for the new Jami Omar Mosque. More than $800,000 raised in the last year through the mosque’s buy-a-brick campaign and private donations have allowed workers to begin Phase 3 of the construction, which will hopefully mean that a roof and the outside structure will be completed by October. “It is really good for the community to get together to complete this project,” Imam Anver Malam said. “It’s going to be a great place for our women and young people to get together, right now there is nowhere in the community for them to go.” The site plan for the mosque — on the corner of Moodie Drive and Richmond Road, was approved in 2006, and Malam has been working on turning the $5million dream into a reality. The new building will have a gymnasium and other attractions to garner the attention of the community’s young people and teach them the history and culture of their people. The mosque will also feature a library, so that kids can be dropped off for lessons while their parents pray. He also wants the new mosque to be a meeting place for the community and said he plans for a place in the basement where community associations could have their monthly meetings. “We will open our doors for them,” he said. Malam said the 750-person prayer hall should draw people from Kanata, Nepean, Barrhaven, Bells Corners and Bayshore. To continue the work, the website says they must sell 25,000 bricks at $20 a piece. “We are really looking to the community to make this happen,” Malam said. For more information on the fundraising efforts and the mosque’s progress, visit http:// www.jamiomar.org

Sudden loss of wife provides inspiration for ward contender DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

With his former office manager placed firmly in his heart, Bruce Webster will continue his pursuit of becoming Rideau-Goulbournâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s councillor in the fall. The 64-year-old lost his main organizer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and wife of almost 40 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pierrette to a sudden bout of brain cancer on July 7, but has decided to remain in the Oct. 25 election race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many people who are supportive and wanted me to stay in the race,â&#x20AC;? Webster said, adding that the cancer was only detected on June 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason to be in it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed. A lot of people are feeling that we need changes and not just for the sake of changing councillors.â&#x20AC;? Webster has been on the executive of the Richmond Village Association for almost 12 years as well as chair of the Rural Council of Ottawa-Carleton, where he spoke against the Minto development dispute in Manotick that wrapped up in February. Webster said he has canvassed 700 of the 1,200-odd homes in Richmond

and knows what its residents want. Urban-style development will be opposed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m supportive of a development thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done in a safe and healthy manner,â&#x20AC;? Webster said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want is 30, 35-foot wide lots. The minimum standard for the village is 60-foot frontage and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on wells.â&#x20AC;? Webster retired from Bell Canada in 1997 and soon after started taking an active role in the community. Once he began putting in 60-hour weeks at various community meetings, he figured he might as well try to run for councillor and have a more powerful voice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could either elevate myself and try to become a councillor or I could stay at home and still be banging my head against the wall,â&#x20AC;? Webster said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;fighting and screaming and maybe having some impact.â&#x20AC;? It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt that Webster doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe current Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Glenn Brooks is representing all of the villages in the ward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know for a certainty that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not speaking for the majority in Richmond,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the same time I see our councillors as being in a position where they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel they can let go until somebody else can replace them and do an equally or better job.â&#x20AC;? Webster is a big proponent of waste diversion programs and wants to see

Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill gets massive 150th birthday party All are welcome to grand bash

BRUCE WEBSTER the city use more modern technology. He vows to be economical if he has a seat on council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if I do a little bit more, the prize might be that the city is better managed, better run, the residents will be better served,â&#x20AC;? Webster said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The taxes may not go up quite as rapidly as they might have and the use of the tax money may be better allocated,â&#x20AC;? Throughout his campaign, Webster had been handing out brochures to help create awareness. A line read: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife is my office manager and supports my campaign.â&#x20AC;? That wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change, even without Pierrette by his side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be with us in spirit during the campaign,â&#x20AC;? Webster said.

Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill invites the community to celebrate an event 150 years in the making. Bring your friends and family on Saturday, July 31, and join in the 150th anniversary Corn Roast Dinner and Dance. Festivities begin at 1 p.m. as Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill and Dickinson Square fill with food vendors, pioneer games, gossip tours, milling demonstrations, geocaching, old fashioned ice cream making and more. Then at 6 p.m., the Brockville Infantry will escort local dignitaries in a ceremony to place the Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill time capsule in a safe place to be opened in 50 years in the future. The celebration continues with a complementary corn roast, followed by a family dance with the musical stylings of the band Assembly Required. At 10 p.m., the party will finish up its day in Dickinson Square with sparklers and in the spirit of 1860, a playing of the stirring tune The Maple Leaf Forever. Bring your lawn chair and plan to spend the day celebrating Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill, the heart of the Manotick community for 150 years. The mill is located at 5525 Dickinson St., Dickinson Square, Manotick, with free parking on-site.

Working outdoors no fun in the sun during heatwave NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Welcome to the tropics Ottawa. When it’s 44 C in the shade with the humidex, it’s easy to grumble. But consider the people who have to work outside. A July 6 tour of Barrhaven, Manotick, Greely and Riverside South – in the midst of a true heatwave – turned up some of the city’s hottest jobs. Grab a cold drink, crank up the AC and take a trip that should make you less likely to complain about the heat or the humidity. 11:22 a.m. Rocco Andeloro is wearing jeans, a Tshirt and a ball cap. Every bit of clothing is drenched. That’s because Andeloro is working outdoors, in the sun, pushing wheelbarrow-loads of gravel from Malvern Drive to a backyard about 30 metres from the street. He doesn’t complain, but just keeps on heading back for another load of gravel. He’s more interested in whether or not he’ll be in the newspaper than the heat.

Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week - JULY 15 2010

Hot enough for ya? Ironically, the gravel will be the foundation for someone’s new backyard deck. All Andeloro’s sweat and toil will allow other folks a chance to sit in the shade and sip iced drinks. 11:44 a.m. You can hear Luc Valleres at work before you see him. Thwack, thwack, thwack. Valleres is a roofer, stapling shingles to a home under construction on Kilbirnie Drive, a new street in Stonebridge, just south of Barrhaven. He’s asked if it’s hot up there, kneeling on black shingles that shimmer in the heat. Being eight or nine metres closer to the sun might even make it worse. “After 1 o’clock it gets bad,” he says, implying the current 31 C temperature and hazy humidity are no problem.

12:05 p.m. Luc Theriault sits in a mini backhoe on Manotick Main Street. The backhoe’s cab has air conditioning in that it has no windows. The downside is that the breeze wafting over him includes the heat rising off the asphalt being spread to make a new section of sidewalk. He doesn’t complain when asked if Photo by Nevil Hunt he’s hot, but conserves his energy by Luc Valleres, clad in jeans, attaches shingles to the roof of a new home in Stonebridge simply nodding. as the temperature passes 40 C with the humidex. Valleres was one of just a handful of See ‘We’re’ page 16 construction workers on the job at midday on July 6.

We’re havin’ a heatwave ... Continued from 15 12:12 p.m. The lunch rush is on at Fitz’s Fries, a chip wagon on Bridge Street in Manotick. Owner Shannon Fitzharris is a thin woman; it’s easy to imagine she could eat fries all day and never gain an ounce of weight. There’s a fan blowing towards her and fry cook Ben Gamble, but the heat of four deep fryers won’t be dissipated. There’s no thermometer inside the chip wagon, but best guess is it’s about 50 C. “We’re not in the hot zone yet,” Gamble says, pointing to the western horizon. “That’s when the sun hits later in the afternoon.” 12:20 p.m. The Long Island Aquatic Centre is Manotick’s big outdoor pool on the banks

of the Rideau River. First-year lifeguard Ally will start her shift soon, armed with a hat, water and an umbrella. She says the lure of the cool water below her lifeguard chair doesn’t faze her. “When you get out of the guard chair you can jump in (the pool),” Ally says. Shifts in the chair range from 15 to 30 minutes, and the work is a distraction from the heat. “When you’re watching all the kids, you’re hot but you’re busy the whole time,” she says. “This is probably the ideal job to be doing in the summer.” And unlike most people working in the outdoors during the hottest week of 2010, Ally sees a silver lining in the cloud of heat. The pool has to deal with supply and demand, so hot weather means more patrons and more work for the lifeguards. See ‘I’ page 17

Ryan Hutt sports a wet towel on his head as he tries to beat the heat on a construction site on Limebank Road. Water was good for drinking too; a nearby cooler was a popular pit stop for workers installing new sewers along Limebank.

Continued from 16 “I like the heat,” she says. “If it’s cold you don’t get as many hours.” 12:35 p.m. Ontario Iron Works on McKeown Drive in Greely’s industrial park is a hotspot, even in the winter. Behind the office building there’s a huge workshop full of big burly men and their cutting and welding equipment. “They’re all hot jobs,” says one worker when asked who has the most uncomfortable job of all. Big industrial-strength fans and a cross breeze help move the air, but the people who work here have to use their muscles and the equipment adds a few degrees to the air. Denis Rousseau cranks up a circular saw and gets to work, grinding down the edges of some fencing and sending a shower of sparks across a work bench. The thermometer rises. 12:52 p.m. As the sun nears its zenith, Emerald Links Golf and Country Club is mostly unoccupied; the only strokes around here are heatstrokes. The few golfers on the course are in power carts; walking and pulling a set of clubs in this heat is just asking for trouble. Grounds maintenance worker Nick Dans rolls and unrolls a heavy, large-di-

ameter hose to water down the greens. Watering regularly in this heat is mandatory; players want to play on greens, not browns. “I hose myself down,” Dans says when asked how he stays cool. His trifecta: shade whenever possible, a straw hat and at least three litres of water in a big plastic jug. “You just sweat it out.” Besides, Dans says, he doesn’t have the hottest job on the course. He says that belongs to the sand rakers, who tend to their mini-deserts. They get toasted on both sides: by the sun above and by the rays reflected from the sand below.

1:16 p.m. Limebank Road in Riverside South is getting a new sewer pipe. That means digging with backhoes, trucking dirt and slinging shovels. Ryan Hutt looks like Lawrence of Arabia, sporting a soaking wet towel under his hard hat. The rest of him is wet too, but not from cold water. “I wet down the towel just after lunch,” Hutt says, and gestures at a picnic cooler nearby. “And we have big cooler over there.” Asked if the weather was hotter the day before, Hutt isn’t sure. “I think today is hotter,” he says. “It just keeps getting hotter.” The Weather Network is forecasting a small break from the heat, but then the thermometer heads back up again.

Summer Season a Safe One MC - Swimming is a popular pastime when it is hot outside -- providing good exercise and keeping you cool. However, on average 4,000 water-related injuries occur every year. Many of them are related to swimming and boating. One in four fatal drownings is a child under the age of 14.

the current. Swim with the current, gradually trying to make your way back to shore as you do so.

Even non-fatal drownings can be dangerous. Brain damage can occur from when a person is denied oxygen for prolonged periods. That is why pool safety should be an utmost priority this season.

* Learn to swim. Enroll the family in a certiďŹ ed swimming course. Not only will you learn

Swim in safe areas only. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to swim only in places that are supervised by a lifeguard. Swimming in an open body of water is different from swimming in a pool. You need more energy to handle the currents and other conditions. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t panic and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ ght

* Turn off the pump. Injuries have occurred across the country when children get stuck to ďŹ lter intake sources. While many of these injuries occurred in larger, commercial pools, accidents can still occur at home. Turn off the ďŹ lter for safetyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake when the pool is in use.

the basics of swimming, you can learn techniques to stay aďŹ&#x201A;oat and save someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life.

* Prevent falls around the pool. Encourage swimmers to walk around the pool perimeter, not run. Otherwise they could trip and fall. * Be careful at the Water Park. OK, so you do more splashing than swimming, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as important to know your skill level at the water park as it is at the pool. Take a moment to read warnings and other signs. The pool and the beach are great places to learn new skills, socialize, and check out everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new beach toy. So donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let paying attention to safety turn you off.

Important reminders to ensure a safe summer

Rideau-Goulbourn Concept Plan, Richmond Industrial Lands: A concept plan has been submitted on the Foster Estate property on the corner of Eagleson and Ottawa Street. This concept plan will be considered in the proposed Richmond CDP for consideration. ARAC members and City staff support my motion to revisit these lands over the next two years. Hydro Generation …Watson’s Mill & Burritt’s Rapids: Prior to the Province’s Green Energy Act, I raised the possibility of generating hydro power at the mill site as a revenue source for the mill and Dickinson Square (Mill Quarter). Now, that the Act has been passed, I have asked Rosemarie Leclair, President and Chief Executive Officer, Hydro Ottawa Holding Inc., to evaluate that potential. 580-2424 ext. 31310 glenn.brooks@ottawa.ca

The City of Ottawa has developed a plan to respond to the needs of our community during extremely hot weather conditions. A heat alert is in effect when the humidex is forecast to be 36C or more for at least two consecutive days. The following are some helpful tips for the summer: • Drink plenty of water during hot days. • Avoid caffeine and alcohol. • Eat small and light meals. • Avoid heavy activity during the heat. • When going outside, wear a hat, light

and loose clothing, suscreen and sunglasses • Spend at least two hours in an air-conditioned room. It is the best way to decrease the risk of heat disorders • If you are taking medications, talk with your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. Some medications make it harder for your body to control its temperature • Stay connected with people in your community who have a difficult time coping with hot weather and those who live alone. Check on them regularly.

Leitrim Park Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge Update: As you may have noticed, activity has begun for the construction of the StrandherdArmstrong Bridge. I am pleased to report that the City has acquired the Province’s one-third share of funds from the Ministry of Transportation for the construction of the bridge. The total amount invested from the Province to the project was $15,986,200. Later this month, the official sod turning will take place for the construction of the bridge. As you know this project is a priority for me and I am happy to see the construction continue to move forward. Rideauview Community Centre Expansion - It was my pleasure to host the groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of the Rideauview Community Centre to be constructed this year. The expansion will add 1650 square feet of new community space. North Bluff Park – Community input is requested on the play equipment planned for North Bluff Park in Riverside South. Please contact my office for further information. 613-580-2751 steve.desroches@ottawa.ca

The tube carries the granules down the drain and into standing water underground. The citywide campaign is part of the effort to kill mosquitoes that may carry the West Nile virus.
