Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week -APRIL 14 2011





The long-awaited widening of the Queensway and funding to bring more students to colleges and universities are some of the ways Ottawa will feel the effects of the province’s 2011 budget. On March 29, Ontario Finance Minister Dwight Duncan presented a budget that will stay the course in the lead-up to the fall provincial election. With no big cuts to service or major increases in taxes, the provincial budget is designed to ruffle few feathers as Ontario prepares to head into the election. For Ottawa, the big news is a commitment to move forward with the widening of Highway 417 between downtown (Nicholas Street) and the 174 split. The project is meant to support Ottawa’s transit plan by providing an extra lane in each direction that will be dedicated to buses during the conversion of the bus Transitway to light rail. After the completion of the LRT line, the bus lanes would be turned into high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes. Provincial infrastructure minister Bob Chiarelli (MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean) said he will be announcing more details about the project in the coming weeks, but Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson confirmed that construction would start in 2012. Preliminary design work and environment studies should get under way this year, Watson said. “The important thing from our perspective is it allows us to start planning for the process … of the LRT construction from 2013 to 2018,” he said. Chiarelli said the project will be done in phases for safety reasons. “It’s a high-priority project,” Chiarelli said. Madeleine Meilleur, MPP for OttawaVanier, said the widening has been “longawaited” by residents in her riding and people who commute into the city from the east, including Rockland. Along with the widening of the split, the construction will make traveling on that section of highway safer, Meilleur said. MONEY FOR COLLEGES, UNIVERSITIES Also in the budget, Ontario will provide $64 million in 2011-12 growing to $309 million in 2013-14 to create an additional 60,000 post-secondary spaces for students, and with four colleges and Universities, Ottawa could see a good portion of that funding. “I fully expect that the four post-secondary institutions – five, if you include St. Paul (University) – will be accessing

those funds to a greater or lesser degree depending on their needs,” Chiarelli said. “In a knowledge-based economy such as ours, we need to open the doors to as many people as possible,” the mayor said. Duncan Watt, Carleton University’s vice president of finance and administration, said the multi-year announcement provides predictability and stability to allow the university to make long-term plans. “It also sends a strong signal in terms of the important role that post secondary education plays in the future prosperity of the Ontario economy,” he said. While Algonquin College president Bob Gillett said he looks forward to the province’s upcoming five-year plan for postsecondary funding, the budget announcement means “…at least we can now make a start in allowing some of those students to get here,” Gillett said. The province’s plan to “upload” the costs of certain programs continues, and Ontario municipalities will see $3.07 billion this year, up from $2.66 billion in 2010. Ottawa’s share of that was about $25 million this year, which city council dedicated to adding additional programs such as $14 million for affordable housing in Ottawa and offsetting higher tax increases. The province is “uploading” the costs of running certain social service programs, such as the Ontario Disability Support Program, to ease the financial burden on municipalities. The Ontario budget highlighted reforming the public service as a way it would save money in the coming years. The province’s bureaucracy will be trimmed by 1,500 positions between April of 2012 and March of 2014. Ontario already committed to cutting 3,400 public-service jobs in the 2009 budget. That didn’t sit well with the president of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union, Warren (Smokey) Thomas. “As the government admits, Ontario already has the third-lowest program spending per capita among the provinces and the second-lowest cost for government administration,” Thomas said in a statement sent out after the budget’s release. “The idea that we need to cut public services – at a time when we are giving away billions in corporate income tax cuts – is ludicrous.” On the financial side, the provincial deficit is expected to be $3 billion lower than expected a year ago. That is mainly due to spending cutbacks to the tune of $2.6 billion compared to what the province forecasted it would spend in 2010-11.

A group of Greely residents have started the process of bringing non-profit seniors’ housing to the village, hopefully within five years. Sheila Heatlie, who has spearheaded this project along with three members of the newlyformed Seniors Exploratory Housing committee, said there’s a gap in Greely’s services for seniors who can’t maintain their home but don’t want to move into the city to live in a seniors’ residence. “We have a growing population of seniors and we’re finding that they no longer want to be bothered with the care and upkeep of a house and a yard. But for many of them they grew

up here, their friends and family are here, and they want to stay here,” Heatlie explained. “The only option is to move into the city, or get on a waiting list that is currently years long for the non-profit housing in Metcalfe or Osgoode, because there are none in Greely.” They are in the process of putting together a formal proposal for the Osgoode Township Non-Profit Housing Corporation, which runs two seniors’ residences in Osgoode and Metcalfe as well as several family units, to see if they will take on the project to assist with finding funding, co-operating with local politicians and land owners, and working with the city to get the project done. “We want to work with them because they’re already estab-

Relay for Life teams gearing up for over-night event LJ MATHESON

The support, respect and camaraderie for each other is evident when they make plans to fundraise for a cause close to their hearts. It’s a comfortable mix of family and friends – ranging in ages and generations – from Barrhaven. They total more than 20 now and that’s enough for two Relay for Life teams which is their soul focus. Their event is on June 10 and 11 at the Nepean Sportsplex. “We started fundraising for this year as soon as we put the tents in the back of the truck at the end of last year’s event,” said team captain and cheerleader Susan Enns. “It’s something we all look forward to each year.” Dubbed the Flying Dutchman and the Dutch Touch, the two teams have set a lofty goal of $10,000 to raise for the fight against cancer. Since last year, they have held fundraisers like a giant yard sale, where neighbours were giving up their prized possessions for sale or donating a portion of their own yard sales for the cause. They took part in a curling bonspiel in Tweed and next month, they are hosting a paintball tournament at J.T.’s Frontline paintball on Third Line Road. Some of the men on the team are “really into” the paintball aspect. “In Steve’s line of work, he’s gotten a lot of participants and the boys are really great at organizing this fundraiser,” said Jackie Partridge.

Steve Luchies is a police officer for the City of Ottawa. “It’s been great; there has been a lot of help – both corporate and individual sponsorship,” he said “People are really supportive.” His son Tyler, 12, is also in the spirit. “I play football and the coaches have sponsored me,” he said. As for all the Relay for Life teams involved in this year’s event – which takes place at various locations across the city throughout the month of June – there are fundraising pages where people can make online donations. These two teams have a Facebook page as well where they keep family and friends up to date on their progress and fundraising activities. “It’s really brought us closer together as a family,” Enns said. “My family would be good candidates for testing.” She said three sisters – who are her cousins – all survived breast cancer. Both her parents had cancer – her father, twice. “Anyone with the last name Enns has been touched by cancer,” she said. “Both Mom and Dad fought cancer, as have many aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends. The more I reconnect with family and friends online, the more I realize just how many lives have been affected.” If you would like to take part in the team’s paintball tournament, contact Steve at 613-6578859 or email stevepam.luchies@ There will be prizes awarded for various skill levels including a target competition. The cost is $60 to participate.

lished, and we would work with them to go to the city, to look at how many units to build, what kind of land we can get and where that land is. “The corporation has already worked with the city and province to get mortgages in the past,” she said. The corporation’s president Walter Nibogie said he generally supports the prospect of bringing affordable housing to Greely seniors, although he’s not sure of the details without a formal proposal. “We’ve always been interested in building a seniors’ retirement place in Greely. It really balances out the area because there’s already one in Osgoode and Metcalfe. But there’s never been a need established,” Nibogie said. “We’re willing to back

it and do what we have to do. We do have a board that handles those places.” The project went to the corporation’s board meeting on Wednesday, April 13 for discussion. The next step will be talking to Ward Coun. Doug Thompson and Greely residents to get interested co-operators on board. Nibogie said that one critical element going forward is gaining computer experience such as Internet research and using email, which is currently lacking in the Greely committee made entirely of seniors. He said community members might be needed to help in this area as the committee moves forward on its research and planning stages. Non-profit housing is monitored by the provincial govern-

ment, and qualifies for subsidies by providing “rent-to-income” units, which allow low-income seniors to pay only what they can afford. Other units would be rented out normally with no provincial subsides. The exploratory committee has its eye on a piece of land near Bank Street and Parkway Road that used to be a maintenance yard for Osgoode Township municipal vehicles and machinery, which left the area when Greely became part of the City of Ottawa in 2001. Part of the difficulty of securing land, Heatlie said, is that much of Greely’s undeveloped space has already been purchased by developers, save for a few pieces of land owned by the city, and developers are loathe to give up profitable land.

Greely group looking to build affordable seniors’ housing

Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week -APRIL 14 2011


NEPEAN-CARLETON The riding of Nepean-Carleton covers the areas of Rideau, Goulbourn, Osgoode, Metcalfe, Manotick, Bells Corners, Greely, Barrhaven, Nepean and North Gower. Pierre Poilievre, the incumbent and Conservative candidate has held the seat

since 2004. Before Poilievre, it was held by Liberal David Pratt for two terms. Poilievre is being challenged by Liberal Ryan Keon — son of Conservative senator Wilbert Keon, NDPer Ric Dagenais and Green Party member Jean-Luc Cooke.

Green party candidate focuses on making difference Name: Jean-Luc Cooke Party: Green Nepean-Carleton Green candidate Jean-Luc Cooke wants to more than just be the first member of his party elected in a federal election. While, he said, earning that distinction is a legacy in itself, it isn’t enough for him. He said he wants to work with the other parties to make sure things are accomplished in a more efficient manner. “As a citizen and someone who’s engaged in the democratic process, I’m really frustrated with the level of animosity the different parties have for each other,” he said. “I think it’s getting in the way of government getting things done.” The Bells Corners resident first got involved in politics while at Carleton University where he sat on various governance councils while completing a degree in engineering in 2001. Cooke was hand-picked by former Green candidate Lori Gadzala to rep-

resent the party in the riding after she decided to step down following a thirdplace finish in the 2008 election. “My first reaction was denial, but that night going home from work, I could shake the idea and a couple days later I committed myself to becoming the candidate,” he said. “Since then I’ve been going to fairs, going to community events, meeting people, knocking on doors and building up my platform based on what I’ve been hearing from people.” Cooke said the tipping point for deciding to run was slow decline of entrepreneurship in Ottawa and across the country, culminating with the downfall of Nortel. He said he was astonished by the lack of response from the government, leaving people without pensions and “folks fighting cancer with long-term disability insurance that wasn’t insurance at all.” “It was just the whole way the thing was handled,” Cooke said. “I said, I need to step up here and speak for the smallbusiness owner, speak for the tech worker – people who work really hard.” As not only the founder of CertainKey

Inc. – an information security consultancy firm – and the party’s small-business critic, Cooke wants to see entrepreneurs thrive. “To me that’s very important,” he said. “It (small business) is truly the life-blood of the Canadian economy. Half of Canadians work in these small businesses and they do need our help.” Cooke said he also wants to ensure more lowering the cost of health care by taking preventive measures. Cooke believes an income-splitting idea should be implemented, where people would receive a payment to stay at home during the day on a part-time basis and care for seniors. This, he said, would avoid tying up beds in long-term care facilities for seniors who don’t really need them. “We need to find preventative ways to take care of other health so we don’t have too many people going into the health-care system unnecessarily,” he said. “An ounce of prevention here is far less expensive than a pound of cure.” Other platforms for Cooke include the environment and increased fiscal prudence by the government.

Dagenais excited for fifth campaign with NDP Name: Ric Dagenais Party: NDP It’s easy to tell Ric Dagenais is an advocate. Whether it’s for the working poor, the homeless or those with mental health issues, he isn’t afraid to step in and offer a helping hand. “There has to be way to stop the revolving door of homelessness,” he said. That’s what he decided when he began volunteering with the Shepherds of Good Hope serving supper every Saturday a few years ago. That’s when he became involved with the Causeway Work Centre — whose mission is to provide a range of pre-employment, employment and educational programs and other supports to persons with mental illness and/or other disabilities, and those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. But the beginning of the story really starts with Dagenais’s work with

the City of Ottawa for 32 years as an administrator. His work was in the department for water billing and meter reading. “I always took the motto that I should spend the departments money like I would my own and I never went wrong,” he said. “Our area always had lower costs than other areas of the city.” When Dagenais retired from the city at the age of 50, he entered the political realm after being nominated as treasurer of his local branch of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). Then he was nominated to the board of the Ontario Municipal Employees Coordinating Committee (OMECC) — a body composed of CUPE locals of municipal employees. When the city amalgamated he was the chair of OMECC and he worked to amalgamate some of the CUPE locals. Then he got a job in research with the national arm of CUPE. “It was all in about six years I got involved with CUPE and then the NDP, I became president of the riding association where I live in Manotick when it was Ottawa Gloucester,” he said.

Before he ran for the first time, the riding had the lowest number of votes in the province. “I took it from 1,000 votes to 3,000,” he said. Since that first election, Dagenais has run in Ottawa-Vanier at the provincial level and is now running in NepeanCarleton on his fifth election campaign. “Everyone in the riding was getting a little older, so it all kind of started the same way, I was president of the riding association and am now a candidate,” he said. “I really enjoy running and in between elections I look for ways to become a better candidate.” He is a candidate for solutions and tries to solve problems like transportation without throwing money at it. “Transportation and gridlock are always issues in the riding and the solution has always been to build more roads, but we need to look at solutions like four day work week, telecommuting and staggered hours. It’s a way the government could really take a lead. Sometimes there isn’t just one solution to a problem and I am a great believer of the saying an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”


Name: Ryan Keon Party: Liberal The Liberal candidate for Nepean-Carleton joined the race because he decided to put his money where his mouth is. The 42-year-old father of two joined the Liberal party a few years ago because he was feeling disenchanted with the political process. “Rather than become disaffected, I decided to become involved,” he said. Keon, the son of heart surgeon and retired Conservative Senator Wilbert Keon, originally went to the Conservative party but didn’t find what he was looking for. “Then I joined the Liberal Party in 2009 after the coalition crisis resolved itself,” he said. Keon was nominated as the candidate in the riding in 2009. He was inspired by the dedication and work of Beryl Gaff-

ney, who was MP in the riding for two terms and now serves as co-chair on his campaign. “I was so impressed by her dedication,” Keon said. A long-time Ottawa lawyer, Keon believes he has a balanced approached when it comes to fiscal policy. “I believe government can be helpful to people in terms of social justice, but I don’t think you can help people if you’re doing it in a way you can’t afford,” he said. “There’s got to be a balance.” Even though Keon was nominated 18 months ago, it’s hardly been a waiting game for him. He has been out in the community and knocking on doors. “The nice thing about the long campaign is that we have had a chance to be in the Metcalfe Fair for the past two years, my kids really like being a part of that,” he said. Keon and his wife have deep-rooted ties to the community. He attended St. Pius X Catholic High School and his wife grew up near their Manotick home. “I think having the close ties to the community has helped me to understand

the urban-rural divide,” he said. Keon said he wants people in Canada’s rural areas and small towns to have the tools to succeed. “It’s all about families having the things they need, whether it is doctors or child care,” he said. Keon isn’t worried about running against incumbent Pierre Poilievre, who captured nearly 56 per cent of the vote in the last election. “It’s just more fun,” he said, adding that he isn’t asking people to trust him yet, just to give him the chance to earn their trust after he takes office. “I purposely walk up to the doors with my opponents sign and they seem a little embarrassed to talk to me, they say ‘well you know we won’t vote for you’ and I tell them that I will do my best and they can do their best and in the end we will be friends,” he said. Keon said he has made some great progress and feels that people are open to his message. “If I am elected, the thing I want to be remembered for is earning people’s trust and being their voice, if I can manage that I will be happy,” he said.

Poilievre working for results Name: Pierre Poilievre Party: Conservative Pierre Poilievre wants his message to be clear. He’s going to continue pushing to get results for Nepean-Carleton. The Conservative candidate has been the riding’s MP since narrowly defeating Liberal David Pratt in 2004 and hasn’t taken his position for granted for a second. “It’s been very rewarding to serve the people of Nepean-Carleton,” he said. “Everyday is exciting.” Poilievre, 31, said he’s been interested in politics since his teens, where he then studied international relations at the University of Calgary. Since arriving in Ottawa to take a job on Parliament Hill nine years ago, Poilievre said his vision hasn’t changed. “I’m an energetic and outspoken parliamentarian who gets results for his constituents,” he said. “I want to

continue to get results for the community I live in.” In his past term, Poilievre said he’s most proud two things: Securing funding for the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge and the Fairness for Military Families Act, which was passed by the House of Commons last June. The bridge – which is currently being built over the Rideau River to connect Earl Armstrong Road and Prince of Wales Drive – should be complete by next year. Poilievre said the bridge will drastically cut down the amount of traffic in Manotick as well. The Fairness and Military Families Act bill was passed thanks to the efforts of Maj. Jim Duquette and his wife Anne. The Osgoode couple spearheaded the motion back in 2006, after Duquette was denied using his 36-week parental leave time after the birth of his first son, Jacob, because he was serving in Israel on a peacekeeping mission. Duquette returned home two weeks after the one-year cut off for deferment, so Poilievre pushed to get that cut off extended to two years. “The only exception that existed was

for prisoners who could defer their benefits until they got out of jail,” he said. “I thought that was really unfair.” As well, Poilievre mentioned his role in securing $1 million for Project s.t.e.p. as a major accomplishment. The project is the city’s response to addressing youth addiction and encourages those in need to get early counselling through an enhanced education and prevention approach in local high schools. Poilievre said that the project has helped 60 per cent of students either reduce or stop their drug use. “We’ve seen enormous success through that program,” he said. Looking forward, Poilievre said if elected, the Strandherd-Armstrong bridge would continue to be a priority, as well as doubling the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit to $500. The tax credit – which was the idea of Osgoode resident Anne Taylor – gives families a financial reprieve if they register their children in sports leagues. “I think it’s important to work hard and get results for the community,” he said. “That’s why people elect us: to get things done, so that’s what I do.”

Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week

Liberal candidate seeking voter trust


Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week -APRIL 14 2011


Thank a volunteer - or be one


ational Volunteer Week was first proclaimed in 1943 as an initiative to draw the public’s attention to the vital contribution of women to the war effort on the home front. In the late 1960s, the focus was revived and broadened to include all community volunteers. Canadians have a rich history of volunteering and community involvement. With 12.5 million volunteers dedicating their time across Canada, they are creating positive change on many fronts – community health care, sports and recreation, heritage and arts, environmental protection and advocacy, disaster relief, international development, and volunteer firefighting – the list is endless. The work of volunteers is essential to maintaining resilient communities at home and around the world. National Volunteer Week (NVW) pays tribute to the millions of Canadian volunteers who graciously donate their time and energy. This year’s 68th annual NVW is happening right now. It is Canada’s largest celebration of volunteers,

volunteerism, and civic participation. We have recognized just two of the countless number of volunteers in our community over the past two weeks. Manotick’s Kris Schulz has put her community first in so many ways – through the Lions Club, Watson’s Mills and even with the curling club. This week, we salute Michelle Sharma who is celebrating almost 20 years with the community police association in Barrhaven. She says she loves the community and those she helps on a daily basis, and volunteering with the Ottawa Police Service is something that is close to her heart. People volunteer for a number of reasons: they have a desire to use their personal skills and experiences; they have been personally affected by the cause and they want to give back to their community. Today we are even more reliant on volunteers. To encourage active participation from our youth, why not set an example and help out in your community with a cause that is close to your heart?


Easy protest is not worth the effort


he Internet always buzzes with calls for protest of one sort or another. The latest, which is big on Facebook, is a call for people not to buy gasoline on April 15. Various figures are quoted as to what this will cost the oil companies, but the overriding idea is that they will be brought to their knees by this show of consumer force and drop prices at the pump. Even on Facebook there seems to be some awareness of flaws in the plan. For example, people might buy gas on the 14th, or the 16th. So someone has responded by creating a new group called Don’t Buy Gas on April 15th and 16th. That should fix it. Looking at some of the sites where this idea is being discussed, you can see intelligent discussion about what boycotts can and can’t accomplish, as well as some pointed critiques of the boycotters — such as the irony of someone who drives a gas guzzler engaging in a protest against the oil companies. What you don’t see are any suggestions that people work a little harder to solve what they see as a problem. “Eighty per cent of success,” Woody Allen once wrote, “is showing up.”

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town Not showing up at a gas pump may not be all that successful. Whereas showing up, or the reverse, can make an impression on those who matter. The other day in Ottawa only 32 people showed up for a discussion of less frequent garbage pickup, a proposal that was supposed to be wildly controversial. “I’m being told that everybody opposes this,” said a city councillor, Scott Moffatt. “Where are they?” Maybe they’re at home planning where not to buy gas on April 15. That’s a protest anyone can handle. No effort is involved and it literally costs nothing. Governments know that. That’s probably the reason why Earth Hour has never made much of an impact. It shows almost no commitment to turn off your lights for an hour once a year. No sacrifice is made. It is not like standing in

the rain with a placard or even writing a letter to your member of Parliament. Millions of people turned out their lights at Earth Hour on March 26 and millions didn’t. Maybe if everyone did, some governments might have noticed, but maybe not. “Sure, they turned out their lights,” someone in government might say, “but will they go to the polls?” Not everyone will, that’s for sure. The papers these days are full of interviews with young, idealistic people who say they have never voted and don’t intend to this time. Why? It’s hard to know precisely, but many say they don’t like politicians, don’t respect the process, don’t think they can make any difference. But how else are they going to make a difference? By turning off their lights for one hour once a year? By not buying gas on April 15? The danger of easy protest is that it can make the protester feel he has done his bit, when in fact he should be doing more. If he is satisfied that he has served humanity by joining a Facebook protest page or not buying gas on April 15, then humanity isn’t going to get much more out of him. There is something to be said for making some things easy. In Ottawa,

the Blue Box program is a great success primarily because it’s an easy thing to do. If recycling was difficult, fewer of us would be doing it. But attaching too much virtue to simple actions puts off the difficult ones. The Ontario government worked like crazy to get people to use different light bulbs. Nothing wrong with that, unless it allows us to think that, without making any sacrifice at all, we have now done our thing for the environment. Making significant change is hard work, every day.

Even though more than half of respondents told the city they didn’t want biweekly garbage pickup, the city is moving forward with a plan to do just that. Although it may be unpopular, it is an investment in sustainability and protecting the environment, according to the city.

On April 11, the city’s environment committee will be voting to change the way your garbage is collected. The changes will focus on encouraging single-family homes to use green bins to recycle organics. Under the new plan, green bins would be picked up every week. Recycling bins would be picked up every week, alternating between blue (glass, aluminum and plastics) and fibres (paper and cardboard).

Anything left over that has to be placed in a garbage bag would only be picked up every two weeks. According to a city report, only 22 per cent of residents who responded to a survey said they preferred that model. Fifty-one per cent said they were against reducing garbage collection to a biweekly schedule. Just over 2,000 residents were consulted. But that’s no reason to reject the idea, said Dixon Weir, the

city’s general manager of environmental services. More importantly, he said, the changes can have a positive impact on the environment by encouraging people to recycle their organic waste instead of throw it in the trash – and that can also save the city money. “Our recommendation, we feel, provides the best advantage to the city on many fronts – on financial, on environmental (fronts),” Weir said.

The total savings would be $54 million, or $9.1 million each year until the city’s next waste collection contract would end in 2018. That only translates to $29 in savings for a typical home each year, when both the rate- and tax-supported costs of waste collection are considered. But the changes extend the lifespan of the Trail Road landfill by about two years, Weir said. 455041

just about anything, Emmy said she draws inspiration from almost anywhere. “If there’s a book that really strikes a cord and affects me… I really try to think about that,” she said. “My life isn’t that exciting right now but I try to think of experiences for new discovery.” Emmy said she veered in different directions from her own life to write her acclaimed works. Her short story tells the tale of a boy who is in need of a friend after enduring a summertime shooting, while her poem consists of wonder lust. But she insists isn’t hard to branch out. “It takes empathy putting yourself in their shoes,” she said. “Even if you haven’t had a traumatic experience in your life, you can still write about someone who has.” But it’s not that she doesn’t have any of her own experiences. Emmy plays volleyball, badminton, clarinet and Grade 9 piano at home. She’s also in gifted classes at school. “When it comes to the complexities of the written language, she has an understanding of how language is put together which exceeds that of other students the same age,” homeroom teacher Carolyn Bell said. “Since she has a deeper understanding of how language can be put together and used, she then has the opportunity to seek out

EMMY FU ways to put her knowledge into practice, finding ways to piece words and ideas together in ways that you wouldn’t expect, but that create beautiful images or demonstrate deep insight.” It was that imagery that also helped her win the local Royal Canadian Legion’s Remembrance Essay Writing Contest in November for the poem Bang, Bang, We All Fall Down. Emmy’s started to think about how she can put her writing to use in her future career. She said she has thought about being a journalist, but likes crafting descriptive pieces rather than factual articles. In the meantime, Emmy wants to focus on improving her writing by gathering as much constructive criticism as she can. “I always want to be the best,” she said. “At the end of the journey it feels a lot better to know I’ve improved.”

Barrhaven community police volunteer into 20th year

Having to balance a demanding job with an average of 10 to 20 hours of volunteer hours a week isn’t the easiest task. But Michelle Sharma wouldn’t have it any other way. On top of being the community aide for Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities for the past 11 years, Sharma has volunteered her time at the Barrhaven Community Police Centre for the last 19 – having hit her anniversary date just before National Volunteer Week, which runs from April 10 to 16. Sharma got her start with the OPP community services in Kanata – where she’s from – and then moved on to the Greenbank Road Ottawa police station by the fall. She transferred to Barrhaven soon after and has been enjoying herself ever since. “I love to be around people,” Sharma said. “It is community.” As a member of her local Optimist and Lions Club chapters, Sharma has been a pillar in the community.

“I love to be around people. It is community.” Michelle Sharma Community Volunteer

Now as the community police’s volunteer program coordinator for the neighbourhood watch, she takes an active role in keep the area safe. Sharma organizes clean-ups and even takes a proactive approach by leading quarterly meetings to encourage residents to watch out for stolen items and graffiti in Barrhaven. “It’s just about keeping them going,” she said. “I try to make it more appealing for families to be more rigorous.” Sharma also takes pride in making people more comfortable of the police centre. She said some of her main roles include calming people

down and referring them to the right place, particularly if a possession has been lost or stolen. But the self-described “jack of all trades” also tries to set up events for children, such as fingerprinting, to put them at ease when being at the station. “They ask a lot of different questions,” she said. “It’s important to get that fear out. Sometimes they’re afraid.” “If I need something done, she’ll do it,” Const. Tim Murray said, the station’s community officer. “She’s great at communicating with all the volunteers.” Sharma said she’s had a great working relationship with many of the 14 community officers including the recently departed Tara McDougall and now Murray, who’s been at the station for about a month. While Sharma admits a couple of the officers at the beginning of her tenure perhaps weren’t the friendliest, she’s been adapt to the needs of each person. “It’s a learning curve for myself,” she said. “It requires patience and learning how to deal with people. “But I don’t really have any bad days. I love coming here.”

Ask the Expert... MindWare Academy McBead Creations Q. Q. A. A. Q. A. My child has a learning disability and is really struggling in Math. I’m noticing that the text book he is using is very language based and I’m concerned that the Curriculum Text is not addressing my child’s needs in Math. Do you have ideas of how I can help him?

I am getting married this summer and I am wondering if my bridesmaids and I could make our own jewellery.

You certainly can. You could book an appointment with one of our talented beading designers who will be pleased to work with you in designing your dream wedding accessories. Then, invite your attendants, mother, and anyone else to join you in a private workshop to bring your ideas to reality. Bringing some snacks can turn your class into a fun bridal shower!

You are very perceptive to notice that your child’s Math text book may be part of the problem. Although the Ontario Curriculum texts used today are excellent at developing critical thinking and problem solving strategies, the texts definitely cater to average and above average students and not to the child with a learning disability. These books have removed a lot of the “rote” practice learning of basic mathematical facts that many students with a Learning Disability still require as a foundation for learning Math. Extra practice is strongly recommended for children so they can apply the skills to more complex problems. Since feeling overwhelmed is a common response, spacing out questions so they aren’t arranged closely together allows the child to focus on each example. Problem-solving methods should be broken down into simple steps. Questions should be concise and clear. It is very helpful to underline key words in questions allowing children to focus on important areas of the task. Small class sizes, teachers who understand learning disabilities, supplementing the text and providing clear instructions are all important for Math success for children with Learning Disabilities.

I would like to do a fundraising beading project. Can I get a discount on bulk quantities, or do you need to have a business licence?

We are happy to offer everyone bulk prices. Discounts are available when you purchase large quantities of beads and supplies, as well as full spools of cord and stringing materials. Whether you are doing a fundraiser or own a jewellery business, we encourage you to benefit from the savings, in some cases over 50%!

What will I feel during the Electrolysis treatment? Most clients are pleasantly surprised how well they tolerate treatments, some even fall asleep. Although everyone is unique, if you are nervous you may arrive with preconceived myths expecting an unpleasant experience. I suggest that you book a complimentary consultation, at that time an electrologist will explain the procedure of electrolysis, examine your area and provide you with a sample treatment, so you can determine for yourself how electrolysis feels to you. The nature of the procedure will involve some sensation, but treatments by conscientious electrologists will provide you with gentle and permanent results. If you find electrolysis sensitive try another electrologist, it may be the electrologist, an older epilator or poor insertions causing the discomfort. For those clients who are very sensitive there are options available that will make the treatments virtually sensation free.
