Canada’s best mini sluggers will be coming to Ottawa for the first time in 2015. East Nepean Little League has secured the city’s first major-division Canadian Little League Championships for August 2015. The major division consists of 11-and-12-yearolds, and the winner of the Ottawa event will earn a berth in the Little League World Series – the famous Williamsport, Pa tournament. Tournament games will be played at South Nepean Park’s Eagles Nest – the organization’s home field on Longfields Drive in Barrhaven. As hosts, East Nepean will receive an automatic entry along with winners of the British Columbia, Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic divisions. The championships will be played during the organization’s 60th-anniversary season. “We’ve proven that we can put on a good show,” East Nepean Little League president Bruce Campbell said, noting the organization’s success running past provincial and national junior and senior tournaments. “We’ve also shown that we can be competitive. To be a host, you want to be part of the group. “No doubt, that will be a big part of our development moving forward. We want to be competitive and push the teams coming in here to be at their very best to come out a winner.” The decision was reached during a during the Ontario division’s annual general meeting in Thunder Bay in October. Since division gets to host the Canadian championships every five years, East Nepean defeated Oakville for the right to host the Ontario event. Ancaster, a suburb of Hamilton, hosted the event this year. See ‘Eagles’ page 5

HOT SPOT Fire destroyed the tree farm, JC’s Orchard and Nursery on Moodie Drive at Fallowfield Road around 10 p.m.Friday night causing approximately $120,000 damage to the twostory building and its contents. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. No one was injured in the blaze that was fully engulfed by the time Ottawa Fire Services arrived on scene, according to Marc Messier, public information officer. The owner of the threegenerational family-owned business is John Czupryniak. A defensive attack was used by fire fighters immediately due to the possibility of fertilizers and other unknown materials that may have bene stored inside, Messier noted.

Police, city sued after incident from last year DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

A former manager of a Barrhaven Shopper’s Drug Mart is suing the city, the police services board and a police officer for $600,000 stemming from an incident that occurred in November 2009. Clyde McMullen was hit by a police car while trying to guide the police to a crime scene at the 3781 Strandherd Dr. location on Nov. 6. McMullen became involved in the crime scene when he one of employees,

a 21-year-old man, intervened in an altercation between Canada Post employee Brenda Van Leyen and her former boyfriend Claude Légaré. Van Leyen was picking up mail at the receiving door – which connects to the drugstore – when Légaré attacked her with a knife. McMullen went down to nearby Jockvale Road to get the police’s attention. An officer drove partly on the sidewalk to avoid McMullen, causing his right leg to get caught under the car’s rear tire, resulting in a severely fractured ankle.

urement.” The claim also says that McMullen still suffers from a variety of problems). Lawyers defending Crook, the city and the police department have filed a statement denying McMullen’s claims. Eli El-Chantiry, chair of the police services board, had no comment when contacted.

In a statement of claim filed with the Ontario Superior Couty, McMullen believes the police officer who was driving the vehicle, Ewan Crook, was negligent. “As a result of the collision, (McMullen) has suffered serious and permanent personal injuries.” The broken ankle required the placement of metal screws and plates in his leg, and “serious disfig-

The Ottawa police were quick to respond to a bomb threat in Metcalfe on Dec. 2 at the Osgoode Township High School that ended without injuries but one male student’s name is being withheld pending investigation. The Ottawa police arrived at the high school at 10:35 a.m. after the principal called them about a student who claimed he had a grenade. Both Osgood and nearby Metcalfe Public School were under lock-down until noon while the police

searched the school. The student was removed by police from the school and no grenade was found. “The principal had heard that the student had a grenade,” explained Ottawa Carleton District School Board’s media coordinator Sharlene Hunter. The Ottawa Police tactical unit along with their bomb disposal unit were on the scene along with bomb sniffing dogs. During the lockdown, students at the high school stayed put in their classrooms and according to the school board, classes continued without interruption.

Watson shows frugality LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Before digging into a pared-down selection of cookies and coffee, newly-minted Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson stressed the need for council to “pinch pennies” and work together. Watson gave his first official speech as mayor during the 2010-14 council inauguration ceremony held at the Shenkman Arts Centre in Orleans on Dec. 1. During his speech at the convocationlike event, Watson stressed the need for a culture of fiscal responsibility at city hall. “City hall needs to show that it understands again just how hard people work for their money,” he said. That attitude was evident at the reception after the ceremony, where Tim Hortons’ cookies, coffee and juice were served. The sponsored fare saved taxpayers around $25,000 that would have been spent on wine and canapés. After listening to jokes about the modest provisions for more than a week, Watson had a chance to take a jab at himself. After Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney’s supporters hoisted signs bearing his first name, Watson asked if the posters were for the councillor, or if audience members were excited for the forthcoming Tim Bits. And while some people poke fun of his 431436

reputation for attending any event (even the “opening of an envelope”), Watson said he takes pride in attending community events. “Over the next four years, I will join you in your communities and church basements, at your farmers’ markets and fairs, doing the important job of going to where you are - and listening,” he said. On a more serious note, Watson called himself a “lucky man” to be serving with a perfect mix of old and new councillors. The council elected sends a message of what the people of Ottawa want, “and I get it,” Watson said. He re-iterated his campaign promises that openness and transparency will be priorities, and that his focus on being thrifty will not impact the city’s ability to provide services to residents: he committed to not raising recreation facility fees in the new year. Watson also highlighted his pledge to address homelessness, and gear the city to take advantage of Ottawa’s 150th anniversary in 2017. The oath of office was administered by former Gloucester mayor and Watson friend Claudette Cain. Suzanne Pinel, better known as children’s entertainer Marie Soleil, MC-ed the ceremony, which also featured performances by the Ottawa Children’s Choir, Les Chansonniers d’Ottawa and Rev. Ernie Cox.

Soccer franchise in the works DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

In the wake of the site plan for Lansdowne Park being approved by city council on Nov. 22, Roger Greenberg already has his sights set squarely on the future. The Minto Group CEO was the keynote speaker at the Barrhaven Business Improvement Area’s (BIA) annual general meeting on Nov. 30 and said his ownership group is close to bringing a soccer team to the nation’s capital. With the backing of Ottawa Fury owner John Pugh, Greenberg said the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) is expecting to lock up a conditional North American Soccer League Div. 2 franchise by the end of the year for the 2013 season. The team would play out of Lansdowne Park. Greenberg added that his OSEG group – consisting of Jeff Hunt, Bill Shenkman, John Ruddy, the City of Ottawa, and now Pugh – is looking into the possibility of buying the Rough Riders name for the city’s Canadian Football League (CFL) franchise, which is tentatively scheduled to begin play in 2013 as well. The group will also likely purchase the Ottawa 67’s from Hunt, to add to their sports portfolio. The 67’s play at the Civic Centre, which sits adjacent to Frank Clair Stadium at Lansdowne Park. As for location itself, OSEG wants to “turn Lansdowne on its axis” by embracing the Rideau Canal and by creating a green, sustainable outdoor stadium for football and soccer, Greenberg said. He added that plans for a south-end wooden veil to shield the canal from steel pillars will

make the refurbished building it an “iconic stadium.” There will be 14,000 seats along the north side of the stadium and 10,000 at the south, when construction finishes by its expected June 2013 date. “This will be so far superior to anything we have now,” Greenberg told those in attendance. “I think it will be a huge economic boon to anyone in the region.” Because of Ottawa’s recent unsuccessful past supporting CFL teams – the Rough Riders folded in 1996 and the Renegades operated from 2001 and 2006 – Greenberg said OSEG wants to make sure Lansdowne is ready to go before a team begins playing. He added the first game would be delayed until 2014 if need be. “We can’t open with a halffinished stadium,” Greenberg said. HOUSING, PARK SPACE IN WORKS In addition to the stadium, Greenberg discussed further plans such as housing possibilities that would frame the north of the 31,500-square metre site, a 3,600-square metre undisclosed food store, the potential of bringing the Ottawa Art Gallery to Lansdowne and preserving the Horticultural Building – just like the Aberdeen Pavilion. He also said Sylvia Holden Park would be removed to make room for the townhouses, but that a much larger park space is in the works just east of the stadium. BIA board member and Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said while the site plan was approved by council is “not contestable,” there are 14 cases before the Ontario Municipal Board that will come before the courts in April. “Unless we are surprised by the Ontario Municipal Board,

we’re comfortable that everything is going full speed ahead,” Harder said. “The site plan is not appealable, but it’s not finished either. There are other pieces that we’re still working on. It certainly takes us well on the way.” There is a four-person panel, which includes new Capital Coun. David Chernushenko and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume, put in charge of overseeing some of Lansdowne’s small issues. The bigger ones will be taking to the planning committee. Greenberg said in talking with some of the incoming city councillors and new Mayor Jim Watson, he feels support for the project has risen. The previous council voted in favour of the site plan by a 16-6 margin on Nov. 22. Greenberg said he felt there would now be between 20 and 22 members of council in support of it. “This is the city building experience,” Harder said. “We haven’t seen that since before amalgamation. It speaks to Ottawa growing in its identity.” While both Harder and Greenberg conceded that traffic will be an issue, Harder suggested the O-Train and park-and-rides would be suitable alternatives. However Greenberg said if people come earlier and others stay later for the entire package, the problem will be lessened. And because of OSEG’s vision for Lansdowne, the goal is for people to want to stay. Greenberg added that there has been a lot of interest from business owners as well as even a movie cinema to have a spot at Lansdowne. “We really want to change the experience for people coming to hockey, football, or soccer,” he said. “We believe the experience of people there will be much better.”

While the championships will cost the organization $15,000 to run because of a banquet, meals, and souvenirs for the players, plus park maintenance, Campbell said East Nepean will hopefully reap bigger rewards in the future. In order to host the tournament, the Eagles Nest will require a two-storey media building for scorekeeping and public-address announcements. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder anticipates that the improvements will cost about $250,000, which the city plans to help support along with sponsorships.

You’ve got the ball diamonds and then all the little amenities and adding the media building would finish it.” Having started as the Cityview Little League in 1956 – encompassing just Nepean households in the Baseline and Merivale roads and Meadowlands Drive areas – Campbell has seen the organization grow mightily to the point where in now includes families in Barrhaven and Manotick. Currently there are over 600 boys and girls from age four to 18 playing in the East Nepean Little League.

East Nepean will also require its own storage space for maintenance supplies, which would allow the organization to save money from having to rent space throughout the city. Campbell said that money could be reinvested in the program like it did this summer with the construction of a batting cage and a patio. “One of the reasons why we went and bid on it is we wanted to develop our home at the Eagles Nest,” Campbell said of the two diamonds that opened in 2000. “That’s going to be part of my legacy: to build a park to call a

CHEO Dream Home deadline nears EMMA JACKSON emma.jackson@metroland.com

If winning the CHEO dream home in Manotick this December seems like a miracle, it’s nothing compared to the miracles taking place every day at the very place the lottery draw supports. Owen Varty, a six-and-a-half-yearold Riverside South resident, is one of those miracles, getting transferred to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) the day he was born and undergoing emergency surgery at only two days old. After his caesarean birth, doctors discovered that his stomach and intestines were pushed into his lung cavity and that his lung had collapsed. A mobile CHEO team put him on life support before transporting him to the hospital. “They showed me what he was going to look like beforehand, because that’s a real shock to see them all hooked up, and they let me say goodbye and then they took him,� explained Owen’s mother Monica Coyne, who was a first time mother that day. But Owen survived, and from then on he has been in and out of CHEO for a number of reasons, most recently to receive his second cochlear implant to account for severe progressive hearing loss. Although no parent wants to take their child to the hospital, especially on a regular basis, Coyne said the CHEO staff has made the experience more bearable.

“The things we had to experience were hard but they really do keep you upbeat and they never let you lose hope. No one ever did,� she said. “Owen thinks going to CHEO is a blast, and his sister’s like, ‘Why can’t I go?� she joked. Owen’s experience at CHEO is one among thousands, and the ongoing CHEO lottery sales are meant to drum up cash for research and resources to further help the hospital treat and save children. Walking through the CHEO dream home is another kind of miracle altogether: it’s the culmination of an entire community coming together for a good cause, said Connie Lebrun, a corporate development officer at CHEO who is responsible for soliciting and facilitating the many trades, products, and donations that make the dream home possible. “This year we’re up 65 per cent in terms of our trades and suppliers helping with the home,� Lebrun said, explaining that about 115 companies, most of them local, have contributed. The exquisite 4,200 square foot Manotick house, located off First Line road. The lottery tickets are $100 each, and the deadline to buy is Friday, Dec 17. Nearly 5,000 prizes, including the dream home worth nearly $1.6 million, are available with 1 in 14 odds of winning. The money will help CHEO better treat children like Owen in the Ottawa area.

Tech toy helps kids Kinect MATTHEW JAY matthew.jay@metroland.com

Life got a little brighter for children undergoing treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario on Dec. 2 with the arrival of the latest video gaming gadget, the Kinect for Microsoft’s Xbox 360. To mark the fifth anniversary of the Child Life Interactive Computers for Kids (CLICK) program, Microsoft Canada announced the donation of more than 200 Kinect devices, which allow players to use their body and voice to play games. The CLICK program provides patients and their families access to technology, helping to provide a sense of normalcy for the children while staying at the hospital. It allows them to stay in touch with family and friends, to explore the Internet or keep up with school work. “I think kids continue to be kids while they’re in hospital,� said Maureen Jones, Child Life specialist at CHEO. “The fact that they can (use technology) to keep up with their friends while they’re here and continue to increase their level of proficiency with the gaming is a big thing.� Video games provide a distraction for children undergoing sometimes difficult treatments at the hospital and can serve as a therapy enhancer, Jones said. “Kids can actually utilize (the games) to focus away from any pain from treatment, and really allows the treatments to go a little easier.� The event was attended by Laureen

Linda moved from nursing, to educating nurses, to designing programs to educate nurses, to helping schools design programs to educate nurses. She did this while raising two daughters, making a home with her husband and anchoring the family life of her 5 siblings. As if that wasn’t enough, she’s spent her retirement sitting on boards, seeing to the quality of health services. This level of commitment – though exceptional – is not entirely unusual for nurses. Three weeks ago, led by Chief Nursing Executive, Dr. Ginette Rodger, close to 400 nurses from The Ottawa Hospital celebrated a major career milestone achieved in 2010. Some completed a Master’s Degree. Some moved from a Registered Practical Nurse to a Registered Nurse role (with the additional clinical responsibilities that this entails). Others presented research to healthcare conferences in Canada and abroad. Still more obtained recognition from peers and patients for their compassionate care. All have one thing in common. They make the hospital a better place. The next time a doctor cures you thanks to their skills, technique, or technology, take a look around.

Infrastructure deadline extension saves jobs, money JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

An extension of the deadline for federally-funded infrastructure stimulus projects will save the city about $5 million, according to the provincial Minister of Infrastructure Bob Chiarelli. Eight million is the total cost of the projects that aren’t yet completed, which includes the city’s portion. The total cost to the Ottawa should the federal funding have been pulled would likely have been about $2.7 million. The new deadline will give the projects another full construction season — to Oct. 1, 2011 — to complete the work. There were 8,800 stimulus projects done in Ontario and Chiarelli said about

98.5 per cent of them would be completed under budget and on time. “There are only about 166 projects in the whole province that won’t be completed on time and they have very good reasons, like soil conditions and the like,” he said. In Ottawa, the Terry Fox and Hazeldean Road extensions will benefit from the new deadline, as well as the Wellspring Ottawa Cancer Survivorship Centre off of Alta Vista Drive. “I know that for the Alta Vista project, they were talking about bringing in a tent and a heater for the ground so they could work through the winter, so now they have a little more breathing room,” John Baird, Leader of the of the Government in the House of Commons and MP

School boards sign plan against violence JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

The four regional school boards and the Ottawa Police signed a communitybased violence and threat-assessment protocol on Nov. 30 to implement collaborative and pro-active planning in relation to safety issues. “The plan has really developed from the time of the Columbine shooting to deal with those kinds of issues,” Sgt. Mark Houldsworth, with the Ottawa police youth section, said. “The bonuses to having the protocol is having the police, the schools and the community partners come together and share resources.” The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, the Ottawa Catholic Board, The Ottawa Police, le Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) and le Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) came together under this partnership. One of the strengths of this school board-community partnership lies in the multi-disciplinary composition of the response team to respond appropriately to threat making behavior. While the school officials and police form the basis of the response team and the protocol, support

may be sought from other community partners depending on the circumstances. The response team will share and review student information and together will create a plan of action that benefits students, staff and the community. “Each school board had their own plan in place before,” Dr. Petra Duschner, with the student services, psychology department at OCDSB said. Duschner said it would look at “worrisome” behaviours like disturbing drawings and start action earlier to nip bullying and threat-making behaviours in the bud before they become violent and require the involvement of the police. The overall design and approach of the local protocol is based on the work of Kevin Cameron of the Canadian Center for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response. Cameron lead the crisis response team in Taber, AB, when a Canadian student entered his school with hundreds of rounds of ammunition, just eight days after the tragedy at Columbine. “The model works well because it brings partners like the Children’s Aid Society and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario together to deal with issues so there is cohesiveness in the school and in the community,” Duschner said.

Barrhaven development to link communities DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

A Nov. 29 subdivision proposal for Fallowfield Road would serve as the final infill project between Strandherd Drive and Cedarview Road. The nearly 14-hectare subject site is south of Fallowfield Road, north of the future Jockvale Road extension, east of Strandherd Drive and west of Cedarview Road. If complete, the Tartan Homes development will consist of 265 residential units, including 118 single-detached and 114 semi-detached units, plus 41 townhouses. “The area will mean that Jockvale Road is extended to Cedarview (Road), which some of the businesses have been waiting for for eight to 10 years,” Barrhaven

Coun. Jan Harder said, noting subdivision’s access to major collector roads and Highway 416. In addition to the residential units, an almost one-hectare park will be located in the south-west corner of the neighbourhood. The park is designed to preserve a portion of the woodlot in the area. The subdivision proposal coincides with other Tartan Homes developments. The company has been building up the area south on Strandherd Drive, east of the Ottawa Christian School. “It’s a good developer, working hard with the community to build another part of Barrhaven,” Harder said. Harder anticipates that construction won’t begin until spring 2011 at the earliest. Calls to Tartan Homes were not returned.

for Ottawa West-Nepean, said. Baird said the extension would also mean the continuation of construction work, keeping people employed longer. “Once these projects are done, we will be very close to the beginning of the start of the work for light rail in Ottawa.” Baird said he was really impressed with the way Ottawa stepped up to the plate. “They really responded to the challenge,” he said. While all three levels are government are pleased with the announcement, the fate of the projects was still undecided as late as late week, when federal Minister of Infrastructure Chuck Strahl announced that the deadline wouldn’t be extended. Nearly a third of the projects under

the nation-wide, $4-billion Infrastructure Stimulus Fund will not be wrapped up by the end of 2010. “The dialogue really began in August, when Premier Dalton McGuinty attended a Federation of Canadian Municipalities meeting in August,” Chiarelli said. “He said ‘We don’t want people to be driving through Ontario towns and seeing buildings with four walls and no roof ’.” Chiarelli said the riding of Ottawa West-Nepean alone benefitted by more than 7,500 jobs alone thanks to the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund. “That’s 7,500 breadwinners that wouldn’t have been able to bring home a paycheque had we not had been able to work together on this,” he said. “It makes sense to see the projects to completion.”

EDITORIAL

Ottawa’s eyes could be bigger than its stomach From the bleachers, and the press box, it would appear to be an exciting time for sports in the nation’s capital. Minto CEO Roger Greenberg announced on Nov. 30 that his Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) is likely to lock up a North American Soccer League Div. 2 team by the end of the calendar year for the 2013 season. Ottawa’s latest Canadian Football League franchise – to be renamed Rough Riders if Greenberg has his way – is scheduled to attempt its third try that same year as well. On top of that, the Toronto Blue Jays have even been rumoured to be bringing a minorleague affiliate team to town.

bank Place for the return Dany Heatley on Dec. 2. Sure those who did attend were a boisterous bunch, denouncing public enemy No. 1 every chance, but to have a reported 1,000 empty seats doesn’t exactly paint Ottawa as a strong sports town. Undoubtedly, the price point for any new sporting business will cater more to families than those wearing suits and ties, but this is supposed to be “Hockey Country.” And if your stomach is too full to enjoy bread and butter, dessert might not be the best option. So while it certainly looks like Ottawa’s sporting scene is ballooning quickly, it could end up being just a lot of hot air.

Throw in one-off events like the 2012 NHL All-Star Game and, to a lesser extent, the 2015 Canadian Little League Championships, and everything appears to be nice and rosy. But has Ottawa bitten off more than it can chew? Remember this is the same city that has already lost two CFL franchises – albeit more so for ownership reasons. It is the same city that’s gone through three separate baseball franchises in as many years and doesn’t exactly pack Ottawa Stadium for games involving the Inter-County League’s Fat Cats. But, most alarmingly, Ottawa is also the same city whose fans couldn’t sell out the Scotia-

COLUMN

A debate that keeps going around in circles The subject of roundabouts is moving up on the list of topics people in and around Ottawa like to fight about. Right now it trails the two leaders — lawn chairs at music festivals and pedestrians vs cyclists on bicycle paths. But, as a scan of the letters-to-the-editor pages shows, the roundabout is moving up and could soon hit the top. The topic owes its current popularity to the introduction of a roundabout at St. Joseph and Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard in Orleans. Some are delighted by it. Some are confused. Some may still be going around inside. All have an opinion. As an example, check out the CBC and CTV news websites, where readers offer dozens of contradicting opinions. Actually, the subject is not all that new. For years people have been offering their view that traffic congestion could be eased by replacing stop lights and four-way stops signs with the roundabout, which is said to work wonders in Europe. Now these people have been joined by less enthusiastic citizens, who say that the roundabout system is too confusing to work here. Some have not driven the Orleans roundabout, some have. To complicate matters still further, many have driven the Prince of WalesExperimental Farm roundabout where

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town a different set of rules has been in place until just recently. Only years of practice will determine whether the roundabout system will work here. Meanwhile, it is fun to ponder why we argue so hard about such matters. My theory, which took a while to get to, is that Canadians are divided into two irreconcilable solitudes once again. In this instance, the two solitudes are Euro Wannabes and North American Diehards. The Wannabes want Canada to be more like Europe. Having people drive around in circles would be a step in that direction. Euro Wannabes also like the idea of having children drink wine at the age of 12. They can’t figure out why North Americans don’t vote for policies that work really well in Sweden. And

they can’t for the life of them figure out why soccer, which is such a beautiful game, has not displaced hockey and our version of football from the hearts of North Americans. North American Diehards embrace the culture that has developed here — including baseball, drive-thru fast food, gigantic cars and loud music and eightlane intersections with turn arrows pointing in all directions. They complain about European countries having so many elections, although Diehards Canadians have stopped talking about that so much in recent years. As you can see, there is a little bit of unreality in both positions. In a perfect world, North American cities would be full of pretty little squares, tiny cars and cute cafés where people actually sat down to drink coffee, rather than rushing along the street carrying it in a takeout cup. Mind you, in a perfect world, Europe would be a bit more welcoming to immigrants and have places to park. Also comfortable chairs in restaurants. Clearly it is not a perfect world. Still, the debate could be useful if people recognized that we are different and that elements of one culture don’t always transfer to another. Some North American free spirits think the permissive drug policies of the Netherlands would

be splendid here, but that will never happen. On a more basic level, the siesta is a wonderful feature of some European countries. But it will never happen here, and we know it. As for baseball, a truly beautiful North American game, being adopted in Europe, forget it. Now, it is not true that we, or they, are completely unable to change. Just think how little smoking there is now, compared with 30 years ago; think how many designated drivers there are now, compared with then. This may give encouragement to those who think North Americans can learn to drive in circles. Belgians playing baseball might take a little longer.

Three broad plans have been laid out for a rapid transit network in Ottawa west that will form the framework for development for years to come. Residents got a glimpse at ideas for a light rail transit (LRT) connection between the Transitway stations at Bayview and Baseline during a public open house for the western LRT environmental assessment at Tom Brown Arena on Nov. 29. A plan to put rail along Carling Avenue was popular with many residents because they said it would place the light rail line in a more convenient area that would reach a larger number of riders. That proposal would likely put tracks along the road’s median. The city’s transportation master plan lists Carling as a location for a secondary transit line, such as a bus rapid transit (BRT) line, but the western LRT study rethinks that by including the possibility for rail along Carling – an idea that former Capital

Ward councillor and mayoral contender Clive Doucet popularized, and one that resonated with many people at the meeting. “Carling makes the most sense from a development perspective,� said Paul Murray, who lives near Tunney’s Pasture. “If they develop it there correctly, it could create more ridership.� But Kornel Musci, the city’s manager on the western LRT project, warned that rail along Carling would create a different effect than buses. The rail line would only have about four to six stops along Carling, which would create high-density pockets of development at each stop. Running rapid bus transit along Carling would allow for more stops and development that is more evenly distributed. Another vision would use much of the existing Transitway to create a light-rail link from the city’s west end to the planned downtown light rail tunnel. Trains would likely run both above and below ground through an already developed area along the Byron/Rich-

mond corridor. That plan would make use of the city’s existing transit infrastructure and it would likely provide more opportunities for intensified development. But residents at the meeting argued it would not preserve the areas little remaining greenspace, and it would not encourage more people to use transit, because it isn’t close enough to where people live. People generally won’t walk more than 600 to 800 metres to get to a transit station said David Hopper, a consultant from Delcan who is the study’s project manager. Yet another idea for the transit link between Bayshore and Baseline involves running rail along the Ottawa River Parkway. While that route has the fewest number of technical challenges and would likely be faster, many agreed that it would not be convenient for riders. There is only one option for the final portion of the transit corridor south of Lincoln Fields – a light rail or bus line that runs along Pinecrest Creek.

Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week - DECEMBER 09 2010

Public weighs in on three LRT routes

Hydro rates talk OTAG meeting LJ MATHESON laurie.matheson@metroland.com

MPP Randy Hillier made his views clear on the rising costs of hydro and the Liberal government’s renewable energy plan, to the packed house of about 75 Ottawa ratepayers at the Merivale Banquet Hall on Dec. 2. “It’s nothing short of BS� said the outspoken MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington. Hydro Ottawa customers have already been hit with huge increase this year, due to rate hikes approved May 1 by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) and the imposition of the harmonized sales tax July 1. Smart meters were another bone of contention for Hillier and many of the ratepayers in attendance. Hillier ridiculed a number of issues made public in the Sussex Report on Renewable Energy. “This Toronto-based company is working with the Liberals about how

to advance the green energy program that we all love so much in this province. The campaign strategy‌their openness and transparency, is apparently being delivered by confusing people.â€? The report shows that a number of renewable energy developers have come together to form a coalition of interests, to promote renewable energy policy in Ontario and support the agenda set as part of the Green Energy and Economy Act and the Feedin-Tariff program. The goal of the renewable energy plan, according to the document, is to help support an expedited release of FIT contracts and to support the broader government plan for sustained contracting for wind and solar through the FIT Program as part of the long-term plan. “In this, it will be critical to ‘confuse’ the issue in the political/public/ media away from just price to include key value‌,â€? Hillier highlighted. “There needs to be a ‘rainbow coali-

tion of validators and messengers.’â€? Hillier said the Liberal government is, “on a path to a green utopia where the air is clean and the windmills blow in the wind and sun shines in the sky and everything is good‌but everything is not good. It’s far from good.â€? Ottawa Taxpayer Advocacy Group president Ade Olumide said the purpose of the meeting was two-fold: getting the City of Ottawa to pass a motion to look at the rising costs of hydro, and as a membership drive and information session. “We want a motion to ask the hydro board to work towards a rate increase that does not exceed the rate of inflation.â€? he said. “Hydro is primarily a provincial responsibility and the average cost is 6.5 cents per kWh. The province is signing contracts to supply renewable energy power for as much as 80.2 cents per kWh.â€? This prompts the debate regarding purchasing cheaper hydro from neighbouring Quebec.

roches joined officials from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) to learn more about the coming fish habitat project, which is part of a compensation program to offset the loss of fish habitat due to housing and road developments in the area. “The Chapman Mills conservation area is a hidden jewel in the Barrhaven community,” said Desroches. “I know many residents and families take pleasure in

spending time next to nature and enjoying the beauty of the Rideau River.” Under the federal Fisheries Act, developers are financially responsible for creating, maintaining and financing new fish habitat to compensate for any that must be destroyed in the development process. Three major developers in Ottawa – DCR Phoenix, Tartan Homes and Claridge Homes – are all involved in the new developments in Ottawa’s south end, and have been working with the RVCA to build new fish habitat on the RVCA’s land at Chapman Mills. Pierre Dufresne from Tartan Homes said the three developers, who are all building in the same area, will split the cost three ways. He couldn’t name the exact price, but he said it will run over $100,000 – a price Tartan Homes seems willing to pay. “If you take away, you have to give back,” Dufresne said. “We could have kept the current habitat and put in buffers, but in an urban area that’s impractical. So it’s certainly fair that we provide some compensation, and what we remove we give back in an enhanced form.” Jennifer Lamoureux, an aquatic and fish habitat biologist with the RVCA, said a new development along a Jock River tributary just south of Barrhaven will block the tributary from entering the Jock River and subsequently the Rideau, putting pressure on fish who will not be able to navigate their way to new locations. “Because of storm water management design options, unfortunately the original tributaries have to be lost to achieve the necessary grades and achieve proper storm water management for the site,” explained Lamoureux. Mosquito Creek in Riverside South will also be affected. “There’s a development there and a very large road system is going in. This road system is raising the grades in such a way that the fish won’t be able to access the river’s tributaries anymore. It would be impossible to navigate the system into that upper area.” The road development, for which the City of Ottawa is responsible, includes the widening of Earl Armstrong Road, which will connect to the new Strandherd-Armstrong bridge currently under construction between Riverside South and Barrhaven across the Rideau River. The developers will be financially responsible for creating the habitat site as well as monitoring it for the next five years – a new rule to replace the standard three year monitoring period, which Lamoureux said was sometimes too short. “It takes a while for a habitat to stabilize, sometimes longer than three years. With the five year rule, if the habitat isn’t working or something needs to be fixed after the three year mark, the developers are still on the hook for it. They have to pay for it, and they have to implement it,” she said. The new fish habitat will be created just north of the new bridge and will open up one backwater bay to the main river and create a new embayment perfect for reproduction. Lamoureux said the new fish habitat will allow more water flow through the area, increasing oxygen levels for the aquatic life and reducing algae blooms in the summer. “There are about 30 fish species in the Rideau system, and every one of them could move in here. The increased oxygen and water flow will mean they can use it for reproduction and feeding.” Lamoureux said there are a number of target species, but the new habitat will benefit virtually all wildlife in the area.

Raiders acquire forward daniel.bowman@metroland.com

The Nepean Raiders made a trade on Dec. 1 to shore up their forward ranks. General manager and head coach Peter Goulet acquired right winger Greg Trichilo from his former team – the Ontario Junior A Hockey League’s Kingston Kimco Voyageurs – in a lone deal. Goulet – who coached the Voyageurs before being named head coach of the Raiders last December – said Trichilo will be returned to Kingston at the end of the season. Since the Voyageurs have a surplus of forwards and the Raiders could use another body up front, Goulet said the acquisition made sense. “I take him for half the year

Don’t steam clean carpets

and it helps keep him in their stable,” he said. Trichilo recorded two goals and eight assists in 16 games for the Voyageurs this season after being returned from the Ontario Hockey League’s Sudbury Wolves. The 18-year-old played one game for the Wolves this season. Last year the Schreiber, Ont. native registered one goal and two assists in 60 games. Goulet said he’s hopeful Trichilo can continue the strong play he exhibited with Kingston. “He’ll give us some speed and size,” Goulet said of the six-footone, 173-pound winger. While Trichilo was unable to arrive in time for the Raiders’ game against the Kemptville 73’s on Dec. 1, but he played his first game against the Kanata Stallions on Dec. 5.

Nepean Raiders’ Zach Carriveau tries to elude the checking of Brock Plouffe of the Kemptville 73’s during their game on Dec. 1. The 73’s won the game 5-3.

Kemptville knocks off Raiders Nepean goes 1-2 last week in CHL play DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

Knowing that the Nepean Raiders were playing their third game in four nights, the Kemptville 73’s knew what they wanted their strategy to be on Dec. 1. Kemptville head coach Pat Malloy said he wanted his team to force the issue early against the Raiders in their CHL game. It was a strategy that paid off as Kemptville beat the home team 5-3 at the Nepean Sportsplex. Following a hard-fought 2-1 win over the Cumberland Grads the night before – in which veteran goaltender Michel Kowalew made 45 saves – Raiders head coach and general manager Peter Goulet admitted his team looked a little sluggish against the 73’s. The Raiders trailed early in the contest thanks to Kemptville goals by Mark Hough and Jacob Clark. Hough’s was a power-play marker just 1:21 into the game. “It’s tough to start a game with three penalties in a row, five minutes in,” Goulet said. “We just were flat.” But to their credit, the Raiders didn’t roll over after the slow start. Winger Grant Garvin got Nepean on the board midway through the first by jumping into an open seam, taking

a pass from Keenan Hodgson, and ripping a snapshot past 73’s goaltender Keinan Brown. Ace scorer Brent Norris then tied the game on almost a carbon-copy play late in the second period. The goal was the 22nd of the year for Norris. However, just as the Raiders appeared to be moving full speed ahead, Kemptville responded. Brandon Lesway converted a pretty cross-crease pass from Patrick Cameron on a three-on-two rush, tipping the puck past Kowalew. The goal came just 52 seconds after Norris knotted the game and with only 1:36 remaining in the middle stanza. “I really think that 3-2 goal at the end of the second was the TSN Turning Point,” Malloy said, even though leading scorer Alex Brenton netted a breakaway shorthanded goal early in the third. “If we go in (to the third period) even, who knows? Anything can happen.” Despite Nepean’s best efforts – throwing 18 shots on the Kemptville goal in the final period – only Shaun Altshuller could manage to beat Brown. Kemptville’s Josh Pitt also scored in the third. “They capitalized on their chances and we had some good chances and we didn’t,” Goulet said. “That’s the way the game of hockey goes unfortunately.” The win for the 73’s means they ex-

tend their record to 10-16-6 and have now recorded points in five straight contests. They went 1-1 in their final two games of the week, including a 32 over the Brockville Braves, and are now 11-17-6. Malloy credits the additions of Dylan Brake and Brock Plouffe – the two players Kemptville received in a Nov. 26 trade with the Gloucester Rangers for Ethan Allard – and Brown for a large part of the team’s recent success. Brown, who was the third-string goaltender for the Ontario Hockey League’s Peterborough Petes, has now won two games in a row. “Our goaltender gave us a chance to win for sure,” Malloy said. “Some of our new acquisitions that we brought over here in the last week have been good for us. “We’re starting to feel a bit more comfortable in our skin and getting some contributions from guys on a consistent basis.” As for the Raiders, a win would have placed them alone in fourth place in the league’s standings after being in 11th six weeks ago. “This one really stings,” Goulet said, noting his team’s strong turnaround. “We’ve just got to come back and have a good game on Sunday (Dec. 5).” The Raiders closed out their week with a 5-2 loss against the Kanata Stallions. Altshuller and Scott Domenico scored for the Raiders, who are now 15-13-7.
