For more than six months after Greely resident Alex Hayes was killed by a drunk driver, his family and friends have desperately searched for answers. Those struggles will continue, stepfather Mark Lesaux said, after the driver was sentenced in an Ottawa courtroom on March 18. Samira Daoud, 41, was sentenced to six years behind bars for impaired driving causing death, plus 30 days concurrent for a breach of probation. Ontario Court Justice Célynne Dorval also barred Daoud for driving for 10 years. “I’m not happy with the decision,” Lesaux said. “As far as I’m concerned when you decide to get behind the wheel and drive, it’s like a loaded gun. It should be considered murder. “When you kill somebody and take somebody’s life, how can you justify six years of jail… my son’s gone for life. I just don’t understand the logic.” Daoud was driving at over three times the legal limit when she hit Hayes on Sept. 9. Hayes was cycling home on Bank Street – just south of Mitch Owens Road – shortly after he left his shift at MacKinnon’s Foodland at 9 p.m. See ‘Judge’, page 4

Changes on route for Barrhaven LAURA MUELLER laura.mueller@metroland.com

Get ready for some big transit changes starting April 17, Barrhaven. The two new southwest Transitway stations – Longfields and Marketplace – will be up and running. Route 95 will also have more frequent, 24-hour service starting on April 17. The route will still be on detour until the final section of the Transitway to Barrhaven Centre (under Strandherd Road,

between Strandherd and Marketplace stions) is completed. There will also be changes to express routes. OC Transpo is cutting back on the number of pick-up stops express routes make in the morning to help the buses run faster (buses will still drop off passengers if they request a stop). Barrhaven express routes will make drop-offs only from Baseline to Westboro station. See ‘Transit’, page 3

Thousands of dollars will be invested into the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre for renovations to enhance the services for Somali, Haitian and Arab new immigrants in the community. The $324,000 dollar investment will provide the centre with one year of funding for the renovation costs at the centre. The announcement was made on March. 21 by Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Chiarelli after a tour of the partially renovated space at the health centre. The funding is provided through the Community Capital Fund, a $50 milliondollar investment plan through the Ontario government and is administered through the Ontario Trillium fund. “This is creating tremendous services for this community... and makes a connection with the new people coming here and the people who are already here,” Chiarelli said. Executive director Wanda MacDonald gave Chiarelli a tour of the renovations and is overjoyed at the progress at the centre so far and looks forward when they will be able to provide more ser-

vices and aid in making some of their existing services such as the volunteer program even better. “Four hundred and fifty active volunteers and it is a strongly growing program that offers a variety of different placements for people, putting their skills to work,” MacDonald said. At the health centre, MacDonald explains they offer international trained professionals a chance to work with staff and other organizations to have the opportunity to follow in the career field they are most interested in. Northern Lights Educational Services also received a grant of $109,600. “This will certainly give us a good chance to provide better quality services for the communities in the west for our youth and newcomers for sure,” Arif Akpinar Northern Lights Educational Services operates out of the health centre and gives support for newcomers in the west end of Ottawa. The funding will help the non-forprofit organization complete the needed reconstruction to offer a fully accessible space and strengthen the language and job search services at the centre over the course of one year.

Service on Route 94 will be extended to seven days a week. Buses will run from Fallowfield along Woodroffe Avenue to Chapman Mills at most times. At peak hours, the route will detour to the RCMP office on Leikin Drive, replacing Route 195. On March 23, the city’s transit commission was set to discuss even more changes to bus routes across the city that will likely mean passengers will have to walk further to their stop.

Judge: guilty plea an ‘important mitigating factor’ Continued from front His body wasn’t found until just after midnight the next morning, where after being thrown nearly 40 metres from the spot of the collision, investigators believe Hayes was likely killed instantaneously. Lesaux said both his wife Penny – Hayes’s mom – and his son Shane, 14, could not face returning to court after hearing some of the facts during the last hearing on Feb. 28. “I think it’s giving people the wrong impression,” Lesaux said of the sentence. “It’s telling people that it’s OK to drink and drive and kill.” The crown had sought a jail term of seven to 10 years, while the defence countered with three to six. Daoud pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing death on Dec. 15. Dorval said the guilty plea was an “important mitigating factor” in her decision. “I accept that she is genuinely remorseful for her actions and that her pleas and subsequent attitude at the detention centre are indicative of that remorse,” she said. Lesaux said he was skeptical of her remorse because he saw Daoud wave and smile to her family members. She sat in the prisoner’s box wearing a white shirt and grey pants and mostly covered her mouth and chewed her fingernails. Dorval cited precedents ranging from four years for a person with an exemplary background to eight years for a youthful offender who caused the death of two children and a young person as reasoning for her verdict. She outlined 10 aggravating factors: • Daoud has a prior criminal record for impaired driving from August 2006, and has 13 total counts of breach of court orders – mostly alcohol-related. • She was on probation at the time of the collision. • She was supposed to abstain from consumption of alcohol.

• She was driving with a suspended licence, having been so since July 1999. • Her blood alcohol was nearly three times the legal limit – .23 milligrams per 100 millilitres – and was unresponsive and rude to police officers. • She told police she had no idea she had hit anyone. (Because of the distance Hayes had travelled when he was hit, Dorval felt was “further evidence of her intoxication.”) • She was offered a ride home and chose to drive. • She had open alcohol in her vehicle. • She was driving erratically as evident by numerous 911 calls on Sept. 9. • She has shown an inability to sustain sobriety. Dorval said Daoud’s “horrendous childhood” was considered. She was born in a small village in Ethiopia, publically circumcised at a young age, was wed through an arranged marriage to a much older man when she was 12. She was required to take care of her nine siblings and repeatedly raped as a young woman. “The Court does not condone, but understands why she is addicted to alcohol,” she said. “Once again, however, I must distinguish the addiction to alcohol from the act of driving. “The nature and frequency of Ms. Daoud’s contacts with the police over alcohol-related issues do show that when she relapses, she drinks to such excess that she poses a danger for herself and others. She chose to drive her vehicle and put other lives at risk. That decision is independent of her addiction to alcohol. Her actions in this context carry a high level of moral blameworthiness.” Prior to Dorval entering the courtroom, friends and family were asked to remove or cover their “More time for the Crime” T-shirts, which they had also worn at the last appearance. She called the shirts “inappropriate.”

Family pushes for tougher sentencing

“This is akin to a political protest in the courtroom, in the same manner as if they had attempted to hold up placards, which would never have been permitted,” she said. “Given the sensititives of this cause and the trauma suffered by the victim’s family, I chose not to ask them to leave the courtroom (on Feb. 28). “This type of demonstration should never occur again.” While Dorval said only the court facts played into her ruling, she said the horrendous impact that Hayes’s death has had on his family and the community played into the ruling. “Alex was a very unique and special young man who supported his mother in every way he could,” she said. “They were very close and his has left his mother in emotional turmoil which affects every aspect of her life. The extended family has witnessed the devastation that the death of Alex has caused. The number of citizens who chose to attend the sentencing hearing, in support of the family, reflects the community’s interest in the Court’s decision on sentencing.” Hayes’s aunt Sue Hosson said Penny has been overwhelmed by the support of the Greely community. She has undergone counselling since her son’s death. “Any mother can relate to losing their children,” she said. “It’s such a tragedy.” A tragedy the immediate family is still trying to cope with. “I wanted to scream,” Lesaux said when he first heard the sentence. “Nothing’s going to change it. Nothing’s going to bring Alex back. Alex is gone. It brings a little bit of closure, it’s never going to go away. I walk by his bedroom everyday, I see his pictures everyday. The feelings are never going to go away. I’m always going to be lost without him. That’s never going to change anything. I’m scarred for life. My family’s scarred for life.”

Friends and family of Alex Hayes are determined to have his death signify a change in the legal system. Almost 1,000 people have joined the Facebook group “more time for the crime...alex hayes,” with some members vowing to write their local MPs and MPPs in an attempt to see tougher sentences levied against impaired drivers who cause death. Many in attendance at the sentensingsigned a petition after the verdict. “It landed exactly where I thought it would,” Hayes’s aunt Sue Hosson said. “I didn’t expect to come here and feel relief.” As Hosson and others – namely Hayes’s stepfather Lesaux who is calling for a maximum sentence – prepare to lobby federal and provincial politicians in advances of future elections, she admits she has another thought on her mind. Hosson added she is concerned for students at Hayes’s school, the Ottawa Technical Learning Centre, and plans to make a presentation to them in the near future regarding substance abuse. Hosson stressed that she is not upset at Daoud, given her addiction to alcohol because of her bad upbringing. “Sentencing is not the only issue, it’s the addiction,” she said. “Nobody wins here today, including Samira’s family. “She (Daoud) has to live with that guilt for the rest of her life.” Hosson said she understood Ontario Court Justice Célynne Dorval’s decision to disallow the “More time for the Crime” T-Shirts at the March 18 sentencing, despite the fact people were allowed to wear them at the previous hearing. She felt their message was felt on Feb. 28. “This little thing accomplished quite a bit,” Hosson said. - Daniel Nugent-Bowman

Shots fired in Barrhaven STAFF Two people are facing charges after a gunshot was fired into a Barrhaven house in the early-morning hours on March 20. The Ottawa police guns and gangs unit said the incident occurred at the 100 block of Tartan Drive and that the shot was likely fired from a next-door neighbour into the residence. The police obtained a search warrant and seized a prohibited firearm and sev-

eral rounds of ammunition. Joseph Shaver, 21, and Samantha Apps, 19, were both arrested and charged with careless storage of a firearm, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm knowing no authority, possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition, common nuisance, discharge of a reckless firearm, and mischief to property in relation to the incident.

Sexual assault charge laid against police sergeant in Bonds’s case STAFF An Ottawa police sergeant is facing a charge of sexual assault in relation to a high-profile case involving accusations of police abuse. The Special Investigations Unit said Ottawa Sgt. Steven Desjoudy has been charged with sexual assault following an investigation into the Stacy Bonds case. The charges stem from the Sept. 6, 2008 arrest of Bonds, a young Ottawa woman, for drinking alcohol in a public space.

It certainly doesn’t appear as though Edith Roberts has the luck of the Irish. The bylaw property standards officer arrived at the Walter Baker Sports Centre shortly before 9 a.m. on March 17, just to see that her bylaw Smart Car had been trashed overnight. It was the second such time her vehicle had been vandalized in the past three weeks. Roger Chapman, manager of bylaw services enforcement, said changes will have to be made. “I think we’ll have to move the car out of there,” Chapman said, who spoke on Roberts’s behalf. “When you get hit twice… it’s too much. The cost of the repairs is outweighing the advantages of leaving the car there.” The car’s side-view mirrors were knocked off, the windshield wipers bent and broken, the front licence plate was kicked in, the back window keyed, and worst of all, the perpetrators tried to pop open the hood of the car where they poured gasoline everywhere. A gas can and lighter were spotted nearby. Five firefighters arrived on the scene, but deemed no gas had seeped inside the

car. A police report was filed over the phone. Chapman said keeping Roberts safe was the top priority. “You don’t know what someone’s done to the vehicle when they’ve doused it in gasoline,” he said. “If it gets down into the engine compartment, the spark of starting it up could cause the vehicle to go up in flames.” Chapman said it was too early to estimate the cost of damages to the vehicle. Last time, the side windows and one wiper were taken off, running the City of Ottawa a $1,300 bill. Roberts was given permission to park her car at the Walter Baker through Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder’s office. She inspects buildings within Harder’s ward and lives in the community.

PARKWOOD HILLS SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION Chapman said an arrangement might have to be made so that Roberts can park closer to the front of the building overnight – that’s if she continues to do so at all. “If it’s going to be $2,000 in repairs every month in vandalism, it’s not worth parking the vehicle there,” he said.

She was later charged with assaulting a police officer and subjected to a search that was subsequently captured on a cellblock video camera. The charges against Bonds were put on hold by Justice Richard Lajoie on Oct. 27, 2010, resulting in allegations of abuse by members of the Ottawa police. At least four other victims have levelled allegations of cellblock abuse against the Ottawa Police Service since Bonds’s case went public. Desjourdy is set to appear in court April 12.

A lot of trucks are winding their way through the narrow streets of the village to try and get themselves across the river. That causes some congestion, particularly at the corner of Bridge Street and Main Street.” River Ward councillor Maria McRae, whose southern communities suffer from very congested peak hour traffic along Hunt Club Road, said the new bridge will make a significant impact on the Hunt Club overpass. “Residents of Riverside South and Barrhaven will no longer have to go north to cross the river. So you eliminate any driver who went north just to cross the bridge. A lot of them are going

to end up going south to the 416, so fundamentally we’re going to change traffic patterns just by building that bridge.” Gloucester South-Nepean councillor Steve Desroches said he’s looking forward to how the bridge will tie Ottawa South communities closer together. “This is really about binding my ward. I’m one of the few councillors who has to leave his ward to get from one end to the other. “This is about connecting two communities,” he said. “Really the option of not having a bridge is not sustainable. Having a bridge would serve the growth that we’re experiencing right now and will experience

in the future.” Desroches added that the bridge will allow better access for emergency vehicle drivers who currently rely on the same congested bridges that residents do. It will make for more efficient transit routes that can connect to the southwest transit way in Barrhaven rather than having to go all the way to the southeast transit way in South Keys. “Our city’s history is a history of bridges, because of the river networks that crisscross the capital,” Desroches said. “We rely on bridges to connect our community, and they’re needed to connect our transit networks.”


Education

Ten students from Ottawa Christian School’s Grades 7 and 8 have been chosen to compete in Ottawa Regional Science Fair at Carleton University on April 1 and 2. OCS students had their biannual science fair projects judged at the school on March 8. There were 35 competitors in the event. “Students were encouraged to choose their topic and begin their projects in December. There were three categories students could choose from; a study, experiment or innovation. From there, the project could be done on anything that interested the student,” said George Hoytema, Grade 8 teacher. A team of 20 scientists and engineers from the school’s community judged the projects. Students were interviewed by the judges to evaluate what they learned about their subject. They were also judged on the visual quality of their display and the scientific method they used in doing their project. “Some students went to great effort to use scientific methods such as sample size and keeping experiments consistent,” commented one of the judges. Hoytema said most students tend to do the experiments and also said that the there was a wide range of topics. “It starts with an interest they have,” said Hoytema. “Then

Simon said his favourite part was “designing and testing the flight.” He also added the hardest part was “coming up with a conclusion about the way the air affected the flight.” Another Grade 8 student, Silke Kubanek calculated and compared carbon impact on a conventionally-made chicken burger and compared it to a locally made chicken burger.

“It was interesting to look at the results. The conventionallymade chicken burger produced five times more carbon,” said Silke. The hardest part of the project was the math and converting different units of measurements. She also said she was nervous about the questions asked by the judges.

children gain confidence and perseverance when competing at the Science Celebration. The students are able to pick a topic that is of interest to them, and as they do their research they gain confidence and knowledge in it. Perseverance comes into play because the process for research, experiments and presentation takes time, sometimes a lot more than expected.” “One of the things that is unique is we’re coming at everything from a Christian perspective,” said Principal, Paul Triemstra. He said events like the science celebration are great because “students get excited about their work” and it provides students with an opportunity to “really dig into their work and talk about this world as being God’s world.” He added despite the school being smaller than public schools, “the students do very well.” The top ten students will move on to the Ottawa Regional Science fair and the top four students will compete at Redeemer

Hoping to change the system

F

orget, for one minute, that a six-year prison sentence seems too light for a drunk driver responsible for killing a teenager – especially one who was returning home from a job he used to financially assist his mother. It goes without saying, justice will never be served for the death of Greely resident Alex Hayes. Family and friends of Hayes undoubtedly have a point that the legal system offers penalties that are far too lenient against impaired drivers who cause death. But all they can do is accept the sentence levied against Samira Daoud – the 41-year-old woman responsible for Hayes’s death – and try to plot a course to lobby politicians to encourage stricter punishments in the future. Ontario Court Justice Célynne Dorval cited jail terms starting at four years for a person with an exemplary background to eight years for a youthful offender who caused the death of two children and a young person. Given Daoud’s past, which includes a lengthy criminal record, Dorval’s ruling certainly could

have pushed her much closer to the eight-year mark. To review, this is a woman – as outlined by Dorval’s 10 aggravating factors during her reasoning in court – that has a prior criminal record for impaired driving, was on probation at the time of the offence and was driving with a suspended licence. At the time of the collision, her blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit. She does not remember hitting Hayes despite the fact that he was thrown almost 40 metres from the crash site. Earlier that evening, she declined a ride home and was driving erratically to the point where numerous witnesses called 911. Sure, Daoud has had a troubled past, which one wouldn’t wish upon anyone, that has led to her alcoholism. But as Dorval said, “I must distinguish the addiction from the act of driving.” Daoud likely didn’t when she started her truck on Sept. 9. And given these short sentences, neither have the courts to date.

Remember tailfins? Remember baseball?

N

ostalgia, as they always say, is not what it used to be. In fact, it is becoming bigger. We used to think of nostalgia as having to do with big cars with tail fins, the Cold War and dance bands on Saturday night. Now, as our society changes at a rapid clip, more and more things we used to think of as the latest thing are heading for nostalgia land. The printed book, perhaps. Maybe the daily newspaper, at least on paper. Look what is already there: television sets that are too heavy to carry, VCRs, CDs and — suddenly — video stores. Remember the chain video store on the corner? Look again. Your grandchildren won’t remember them. And here’s a question: will they have any memory of baseball? Various events bring this thought on. The days are suddenly long and with that comes an urge to play outside after supper. Mind you, this being Ottawa, playing outside would mean playing in the slush, but still, it could be baseball any day now. At a gathering of a particularly intense group of fans the other night, an audio tape of an old baseball game was playing.

Barrhaven•Ottawa South

THIS WEEK

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town Remember audio tape? It was a Montreal Expos game played in the early autumn of 1986, the last game with Duke Snider in the broadcast booth. Snider, a great outfielder and a great broadcaster, died late last month. You don’t have to be ridiculously old to remember when the voices of Snider and Dave Van Horne, calling the Expos games on Ottawa’s country music station, were the sound of summer. Snider went away in 1986. The Expos went away in the season of 2005. Only country music radion seems to have thrived. You can’t say the same for baseball, especially in this country. The Expos are gone. The Blue Jays have not been drawing anything like the crowds they did in the last millennium. What used to be known as the Lynx Stadium has no Lynx in it. Baseball

there fights for survival while the parking lot shrinks. In our neighbourhood, the park across the street, which used to be busy with Little League ball every night, now has soccer (and an terrifying array of minivans parked beside it). It is true that huge salaries are still made by baseball players south of the border and huge profits are made by owners and broadcasters and the people who resell tickets on the Internet. But the ordinary person has lost the ability to identify with millionaires and billionaires, particularly when the behaviour of many of them has been less than exemplary. Their pictures are not taped onto kids’ bedroom walls. Worse than the lack of adulation is the lack of emulation. Kids still want to be Sidney Crosby. Do they want to be Roy Halliday? The game won’t survive if people don’t play it. Even in the U.S., there are signs that young athletes are turning to basketball or football, rather than baseball. Here it is hockey, of course, and, increasingly, soccer, and, even more increasingly, stuff kids play while sitting in front of a computer screen. It is not fun to consider baseball as something we used to do, like square

dancing or renting videos. The game, while considered too slow by some and not violent enough by others, has many qualities that other games lack. Unlike hockey, it has no clutch-and-grab, no headshots. Unlike football, coaches do not send in the plays. Oddly, athletes and fans in other countries are finding this out, while baseball edges into nostalgia in North America. In Asia and Latin America, particularly, baseball is hot. Here, we miss the Expos and we miss what used to be the enthusiasm for the Blue Jays. We miss seeing kids in the park across the way learning how to field ground balls. The nostalgia grows as the days get longer.

On March 26, Ottawa may face its darkest hour. In a good way. Earth Hour, the worldwide event that began in Sydney, Australia in 2007, asks individuals to turn off the lights and reduce their energy use for an hour on March 26, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. Last year, an estimated 10 million Canadians participated in the effort to raise awareness about sustainability issues. Earth Hour has become the most successful voluntary event in the history of humankind, as Hydro Ottawa’s chief conservation officer Roger Marsh put it at City Hall’s unveiling of an Earth Hour banner on March 7. This is the fourth consecutive year that Ottawa will take part in the event. Hosted by the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), Earth Hour saw a record 128 countries participating in 2010. But there is always room for improvement, said Paulette Roberge, head of communication for Ottawa’s WWF bureau. “The main focus this year is to try to get Canadians to think beyond the hour,” she said. “Yes, we’ve had a very success-

ful campaign since 2007, but it’s not enough to have people do it for only one hour.” Canadians should think of ways to minimize carbon emissions and cut down on energy consumption every day, said Roberge. She also stressed the need to switch to cleaner types of energy, like solar and wind. “Although Earth Hour has been phenomenally successful, the reality is that we’re one of the top ten nations contributing to climate change, and we don’t have to be,” she said. Many large businesses across the city will participate by turning off the lights in their buildings, Roberge said. Canadians at home can do the same, perhaps dusting off their board games and lighting some candles. Last year, Hydro Ottawa measured a six per cent decrease in electricity use, which is enough to power 58 homes for a month. The provincial average of energy consumption went down by four per cent, less of a drop than expected because of the colder than normal temperatures.

An Ottawa soldier killed two years ago in Afghanistan is one step closer to being immortalized in Riverside South, after Gloucester South-Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches put up signs marking the future spot of Brian Good Avenue. Barrhaven resident Trooper Brian Good left behind a wife and two teenaged daughters when he was killed by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan in January 2009. Last week, Desroches erected two large signs on Earl Armstrong Drive between Spratt and River roads in Riverside South that read “Future Avenue – Lest We Forget” with an image of the future street sign bearing his name. The road is slated for construction around 2012, depending on how development progresses in the rapidly growing suburb. Desroches said he wanted to start commemorating the soldier as soon as possible. “I was concerned that that road was still several years away so I took the initiative to have the city develop some temporary signs that would honour Trooper Brian Good and his sacrifice,” Desroches said, noting that local developer Urbandale partnered with the City of Ottawa to cover the approximately $500 it cost to make the temporary signs. The trooper’s wife Sandra Good, who still lives in Barrhaven with 17-year-old daughter Jessica and 15-year-old Kayla, said she hasn’t seen the signs yet but expects it will cause a mixed reaction for her and her family. “It’s sad on one point because it brings back the loss, but also he would be so proud. He wanted to serve his country and he was very proud of

New signs demark the coming of Brian Good Avenue, named for a local soldier who was killed in Afghanistan in January 2009. the work he was doing, so he would be very honoured,” she said. “It’s just really nice, especially for my girls, to see that their dad wasn’t just forgotten.” Sandra Good first participated in commemorating her late husband at a ceremony in November 2009 where the city announced plans for the road sign. “It’s quite touching, me and the girls were just thrilled. Of course we want to honour his memory in this way,” she said, noting that they will likely visit the temporary signs as a family in the near future, as an act of remembrance. “We’ll all go together, and be there for support.” Desroches said the road will be similar to Spratt Road, with residences backing onto it and some commercial development. “Certainly a lot of people will see the street and recognize the sign,” he said.

Looking down the water pipes.

Beyond the tap: a look at the city’s drinking water JENNIFER MCINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Most of us don’t think about how the water in our tap gets there every day, but according to Tammy Rose, manager of drinking water services for the city, every household gets an average of one cubic metre of water pumped to their home daily. The cost for that averages out to about $1.27 versus the nearly $2 it costs for half a litre of bottled water. The Britannia Water Purification plant draws from the Ottawa River, which is a large watershed — measuring 146,300 square kilometres — or bigger than the surface area of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island combined. Rose described the water source as pristine, with virtually no outside pollutants. “A lot of the tea colour comes from organic decay,” she said. “And there are microbials.” Rose said the city uses the five elements of a safe water drinking system developed out of a report on the E. coli contamination in Walkerton, Ont. in 2000. The first step starts with the source water, or the Ottawa River and keeping it as clean as possible. The second step is treatment barriers. “The key is to have many parts to the treatment so even if one part fails, the other ones are still in operation,” Rose said. During this stage the river water is treated with sulphuric acid and alum — a compound used in Roman times to treat water. Then flocculation happens, where the particles come out of suspension in the form of floc or flakes and the particles are removed. Then fine particles are removed through filtration. Next the water is disinfected with sodium hydrochloride and then chlorinated with carbon dioxide, ammonia and fluoride. Finally, chloramine, a combination of chlorine and ammonia, is now added to the water before it travels through the distribution system. Chloramine is an effective and longlasting disinfecting agent that is safe for drinking, cooking and bathing.

An inside look the Britannia Water Puirification plant that draws from the Ottawa River. Once water is treated, it is sent into the transmission system, then to water storage and finally consumed. “The chloramine helps to preserve the water and keep it clean as it travels through the system,” Jim Guthmann, the Britannia plant manager, said. “Sometimes the water can travel from treatment to a home in minutes, but in some cases it takes up to 10 days to go to areas like Manotick.” The third step in the multiple-barrier process is the distribution system. The city maintains 2,850 km of water main and more than 206,000 services — including valving, hydrants, leak detection and cathodic protection — all of which are 100 per cent monitored. Rose said that the whole system is pressurized; meaning that in the case of the January break of Woodroffe Avenue’s water main, the system shoots water out, rather than taking in possibly contaminated ground water. “It’s virtually impossible for ground water to get into the system,” she said. As part of the fourth step, the city performs 100,000 water quality tests per year, with 300 test parameters — including

physical, microbiological, chemical and aesthetic — and all the data is reported to the public annually. The fifth step is to have properly certified personnel. The requirement, which became part of the recommendation, once the inquiry into the Walkerton incident found that Stan Koebel, plant manager did not have sufficient training. The incident killed seven people from E. coli contamination and made 2,500 people ill. At Britannia the city employs 170 treatment and distribution operators who receive 40 to 50 hours of training per year. The Britannia plant treats about 289 megalitres of water per day. The Lemieux Island plant does about 400 megalitres per day. Despite the media attention over sewage overflow, the water in Ottawa’s drinking water was rated as one of the safest in the world in the Ministry of Environment’s chief drinking water inspector’s 2006-07 annual report, released in June 2008. “We have the fourth cleanest drinking water in the world,” Rose said. Travelling the marble hallways of the

Britannia plant, it could be mistaken for a museum rather than a water treatment plant. But, just down the hall is a series of settling tanks where the water sits once the filtration process is started. The temperature is a cool 10 degrees Celsius and a staff member says that in this early stage sometimes fish can still be found in the water. The water is moved around in steel and concrete tubs to be filtered and mixed with alum. The water is then sent to “settling tanks” where the floc settles and moves to the bottom to have the particles removed and sent to waste management. Once the water is filtered and settled, it continues along the system to be chlorinated and finally out into the system. The blackout in 2003 or major ice storms haven’t been able to stop the plant’s operations, which are backed up by a large natural gas generator and several diesel ones. Some of the challenges for the facility include aging infrastructure and an aging workforce — along with the challenges of climate change which could change the pathogens in the water. But, all in all, the Britannia plant runs like a finely-tuned machine, with constant surveillance and a smaller scale test plant to try out new treatment possibilities. “It’s a really great thing to have,” Dixon Weir, manager of drinking water services said. “We can test out things like Ozone on a dinky scale. In that case we found it didn’t offer an advantage and were able to avoid a multi-million dollar test.” Weir said the city is in good shape and extends services to the Township of Russell. Council approved the extension of the City of Ottawa’s drinking water supply to Russell in 2006. The existing Township municipal residential drinking water system serves Embrun, Russell and Marionville. Weir said that extended to the provision of drinking water supply about a year ago. “They found that having us (City of Ottawa) taking care of their drinking water to be a better investment,” he said. “So obviously we are doing a good job.”

The Value of Today’s New Homes Editorial supplied by GOHBA

The excitement of a new home - there is nothing quite like it. A new home is your home - designed, constructed and finished just for YOU. Today’s new homes offer more usable space, more closets, more natural light, better construction and the piece of mind of a superb warranty.

- from carpets and paint to kitchen cupboards and layout. Most builders will customize the home to suit your particular requests. This means that your new home will be designed specifically for your life style and built to reflect your individual touch and character.

However, new homes do not offer more of everything! In a new home there is less maintenance, less repairs, lower heating costs, and less impact on the environment.

Today’s new homes emphasize maximum light and spaciousness. New homes have floor plans and amenities often not found in older homes such as soaring ceilings, ample closet space, main floor laundry rooms, home offices, and other similar features.

Stop looking around for an existing home that “sort of fits what you are looking for.” Why not consider a new home that you can have tailored and custom designed to exactly what you are looking for. Thanks to new technologies and building products, new home buyers are getting a better home today than they were several years ago. At the same time, they enjoy greater choice and more features at all price levels, along with an unprecedented level of builder service. Only a new home offers you the opportunity to select the features and options that will make the home uniquely yours

Thanks to the new technologies in building products on the market, new home buyers are getting a better quality home today than in the past. Today’s new homes are better insulated then ever before. High efficiency furnaces and high performance windows result in increased indoor comfort and, of course, lower energy bills. Ventilation systems are now standard in most new homes, creating a healthier living environment inside the house. Full height basement insulation was introduced in 1993 together with foundation leak-proofing measures. This ensures your new home will

All new homes have smoke detectors wired in to the home’s electrical system (no more changing batteries!) and many homes also have a carbon monoxide detector. Because everything in a new house is NEW, most new homes will not need any significant maintenance for 15 years or more. Due to low maintenance materials such as vinyl clad windows, aluminium soffits, brick construction, improved roofing products, and better foundation drainage systems, you will find that today’s new homes require much less maintenance than homes built as recently as five or ten years ago. Only new homes offer a complete warranty for your security and piece of mind. Buyers in Ontario get the best warranty protection in North America. In Ontario, it is legally mandatory that every new home be covered by the Ontario New Home Warranty Program. Included is deposit protection up to $20,000, and extensive protection for up to seven years. In the unlikely event that it is necessary to contact the warranty program for service, they have an office right here in Ottawa. In the home building business we often here the refrain “They don’t build them like they use to.” Well...... it’s true. They build them BETTER. But don’t take our word for it - go see for yourself.

Raiders downed in Game 7 DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

The 2010-11 season is officially over for the Nepean Raiders. Back-to-back 5-2 losses to the Brockville Braves in Games 6 and 7 on March 16 and 18 spelled the end of their first-round Central Canada Hockey League series. The Raiders got off to a 2-0 lead after Photo by Daniel Nugent-Bowman the first period of Game 7 thanks to goals Brockville Braves centre David Roy celebrates his first-period power-play goal on Nepean by defencemen Ryan Johnston and Zach Raiders goaltender Dan Altshuller at the Nepean Sportsplex in Game 6 on March 16. Carriveau and carried a 2-1 advantage into the third period. However, goals by Mark Belvedere, Sebastien Gingras and David Roy put the Braves up by two, before Belvedere potted his second of the game into an empty net. Nepean also saw a lead slip away in Game 6. The Raiders allowed a five-on-three goal F I N A N C I A L to open the game off the stick of Roy, but We specialize in all areas of lifestyle protection, as well as your financial Buddy Robinson and Kenneth Neil scored 34 seconds apart at the beginning of the growth which is why you should deal with Dolphin Financial.

by knocking him over, and penalized the Raiders forward as well. Braves’ Colin MacLean and Maxime Dumond scored in the final minutes of the second to allow Brockville to carry a 3-2 lead into the intermission. The Raiders tried desperately to tie the game early in the third, but everything unravelled around the midway mark. Cowie was called for a crossing all the sideboards of the defensive end, which incensed coaches and players on the Raiders’ bench because a Braves player had tripped defenceman Zach Carriveau just seconds before and the play went unpenalized. Tyson Wilson scored just 12 seconds into Cowie’s infraction. Power-play advantages were 10-2 in favour of Brockville. The Raiders won Game 5 in Brockville 3-2 on March 15 to move to within one game from a spot in the semifinal where they would have faced the Pembroke Lumber Kings. Cowie recorded three points while goaltender Dan Altshuller made 49 saves in the Game 5 win. Without leading scorer Brent Norris, who was out with an undisclosed injury, Cowie and Domenico stepped up their offensive games mightily. Each chipped in with 11 points in seven games, putting them just one point behind Cornwall Colts’ Jacob Laliberte for the overall lead.

STAFF Water levels throughout the Rideau River watershed rose last week finally reaching peaks overnight on Saturday. Levels at many locations have receded noticeably since then. For loca-

tions in the Long Reach between Kars and Kemptville, the decline will be slower as flow from upstream continues to pass through. Based on the present weather forecasts, the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA)

expects that flows in rivers and streams throughout the watershed will continue to decrease. Five-day forecasts are calling for four days of sunshine with cool temperatures to follow the snow today. That snow is not expected to have an impact on flows as it

melts gradually over the next few days. The increased flows make it hazardous to be around watercourses. In particular, dams and other structures are to be avoided. The RVCA will continue to monitor weather forecasts and
