Canada Day in Barrhaven gets a funding boost from a federal government program. 15

June 23, 2011 | 28 Pages

Gardens and lawns in Barrhaven, Riverside South and Manotick will be a bit greener now that the city has eased the outdoor water ban, but city councillors are calling on resi-

dents to continue to be vigilant in following the remaining restrictions. Mayor Jim Watson announced on June 14 that southend residents can now use outdoor water for one day per week. The area has been divided into five zones and each zone will be able to water gardens, fill kiddie pools and clean green bins on their designated day. See ‘Water’ page 6

a will be under the French Catholic board. The local public school trustee said he is happy with the plans, which should see the English elementary school open in a little more than two years. “I’m excited about the project moving forward in Barrhaven,” said trustee Mark Fisher.

The birds are singing A look inside the Wild Bird Care Centre in Nepean


When you turn into the gravel driveway that leads to the Wild Bird Care Centre on Moodie Drive, you can see why one volunteer called it “the place that feeds the soul.” Deep in the woods, off of the Beaver Trail in the Greenbelt area surrounding Stony Swamp, the centre is home to 175 different species of birds and is open 365 days a year — barring Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Just in the first part of June, the centre took in 290 birds — a number executive director Deborah Hass says will probably double by July. “We are absolutely swamped this time of year,” she said, as the centre takes in birds that suffer from everything from cat attacks to habitat destruction. One domestic duck, which has been temporarily named Strawberry, was found by a concerned citizen at Billings Bridge Plaza with neon-pink spray paint on her back. While the staff tries not to get attached to the birds, it has quickly become popular and garnered a spot on a blanket in the small office near the lunch room. “I can’t understand why anyone would do that,” Hass said. And there are hundreds more. One permanent resident — Violet, a turkey vulture that was shot — spends her days outside the centre. She will never be released back into the wild because she can no longer use one of her wings. While the mandate is to rehabilitate and release, Patty Summers, education tour coordinator at the centre, said that sometimes it just isn’t possible. In another room sits a hummingbird, whose tail was torn off by a cat. The little bird will likely be released this summer — but in the meantime, feeding her is a challenge. Staff attempted to use a sugary solution, but she was soon dubbed Jelly Bean, because her feathers soon became coated. Jelly Bean will be released into the

Hass said 95 per cent of medical treatments are done on site and requests from as far away as California. “Once we got a call from Nunavut for a Tundra swan, and another time we had to return an Atlantic puffin to Sudbury,” she said, adding that when calls come in, they can’t assume they are coming from Ottawa — or even Canada. It’s a long way from the first patient — a hummingbird named Pip — whose founder Kathy Nihei treated in her own home. Nihei, who passed away after a battle with cancer in 2009, is fondly remembered by staff and volunteers as having a way with the birds. “I have never met a person who was as kind hearted as Kathy,” Hass said. “And she cared passionately for animals.” Nihei lived with the birds in her home for 11 years before the building off Moodie Drive opened up. Now the centre rents from the National Capital Commission, and they are feeling the pinch. Hass estimates that utility bills and other costs have gone up about 30 per cent in the last few years. “We know our donors are feeling the pinch too,” she said. The centre accepts birds from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors can come and see the centre and its patients from noon to 3 p.m. every day. During their busy summer months, Hass said the centre employs approximately nine staff including summer students. They also have about 20 or 30

During the fall and winter month, the staff dwindles down to three full time and one part-time member — which can be a challenge because some of the babies and smaller species need to be fed as often as every 30 minutes.

Summers said she has been working and volunteering at the centre off and on since she was 16 years old. The days are long and at times, can be shrill, but Hass said it is all worth it. “It’s the kind of job you can be proud of,” she said.

Kitchen blaze badly damages Barrhaven home STAFF A kitchen fire in a twostorey Barrhaven home on June 19 resulted in $300,000 in damages to the home and $150,000 to contents. Ottawa Fire Services attended the house at 78 Knowlton Dr. shortly after 2:30 p.m. Callers reported

hearing the alarms ringing but no one was answering the door, public information officer Marc Messier said. Messier said firefighters could see flames and smoke coming from the garage and the siding. No one was home at the time of the fire. Most of the fire was

knocked down in the kitchen before 3 p.m., Messier added. Firefighters proceeded to check the rest of the house for extension. The two occupants were away from the home at the time of the fire. There were no pets in the home. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Compassion in the service of care, Jamie MacDougall and the Order of Canada

Jamie MacDougall is the founder and Director of The Ottawa Hospital’s Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development. He grew up in Overbrook, a brisk run from the General Campus. He went to high school at Lisgar, beside City Hall. His commitment to Ottawa is obvious. It is his commitment to Canada’s Deaf and persons with disability that led to his investiture in the Oder of Canada, on May 27. “You immediately think of all the people that made it possible, especially those with disabilities who inspired me. It is validation for thousands of people,” says MacDougall of the honour. Deafness and disability is personal for MacDougall. His parents, Peter and Gladys, were both deaf. His daughter, Paige, suffered a serious head injury at age 17, bringing his awareness of disabilities even closer to home. “People with disabilities have greater potential than we realize,” says MacDougall. “They have to overcome a lot of stereotypes…Just like everyone else, they aspire to realize their full potential.” Rusty Wendt, the head Carleton University’s Department of Psychology, understood this calling early on, convincing McDougall to take a summer job working with deaf parents seeking better means to communicate with their hearing children.

MacDougall left Carleton for McGill, getting his Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology, studying the psychological impact of sensory deprivation and the link between deafness and literacy. Moving to Newfoundland’s Memorial University, he studied the impact of resettlement on cognitive development in children. From there, he went on to Rochester New York’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf. Then, back to McGill, where he spent 40 years teaching in the area of deafness and disability, and lead the Mackay Centre for Deaf and Disabled Children. His research is rooted in the everyday challenges faced by the Deaf and persons with disability. “Whether its children or adults,” says MacDougall, “I’ve been touched by the courage of extraordinary people.” Those people, in turn, have enabled valuable research. “The strength of clinically driven research is that it is both practical and sophisticated because of the problems it allows us to explore”. During one particularly complex case with a deaf Inuk in Nunavut who was said to have no language, MacDougall discovered the Inuit had their own sign language – Inuit Sign Language. His ability to extend clinical work beyond the hospital into the real world sets MacDougall apart. Working with advocacy groups such as the Canadian Hearing Society and the Canadian Association of the Deaf, he fought to ensure people with disabilities enjoy the full protection of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. His example brings The Ottawa Hospital a step closer to its vision of providing each patient with the world class care, exceptional service and compassion we would want for our loved ones.

Minister of Education Leona Dombrowsky is surrounded by a class at École élémentaire catholique Laurier Carrière following her announcement on June 15 of funding that will mean two new elementary schools for Barrhaven.

Growing communities, schools Continued from front “They need that school. I’m going to do my level best to push for the school in Findlay Creek and the expansion at Steve MacLean,” he added. The new public school will cost about $13.7 million and will be built on a parcel of land within the Chapman Mills neighbourhood, at the corner of Chapman Mills Drive and Leamington Way. Its doors will open in September 2013 with a capacity for 600 students. Chair of the French Catholic school board, Diane Doré, said the money comes just in time. “We have really seen our numbers grow. We hope to have 20,000 students across the board by September,” she said. “Our students are having some of the best successes in and that’s thanks to the partnership we have with the province.” Bob Chiarelli, MPP for Ottawa-West Nepean, said as minister of Infrastructure he sees the benefits of new schools to the local economy. “This allows us to focus on achievements and better outcomes,” he said. Dombrowsky said spending money on schools is a good idea. “Investing in our schools is critical to helping every child reach his or her potential and succeed,” Dombrowsky said. “Our government is committed to making the necessary investments and planning to ensure the future success of our children and grandchildren.” New schools are something NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod has asked for

several times to address the growing population in Barrhaven. “The Barrhaven and Riverside South communities of Nepean-Carleton are two of the fastest-growing communities in all of Ottawa, if not all of Canada,” she said during a March 29 question period. MacLeod said the population nearly doubled between 2001 and 2006, reaching 52,000. DOUBLED IN SIZE “It…is expected to double again to over 100,000 within the next five years,” she said. “That means there’s been a demand on the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board and the other three in my riding for more public education.” MacLeod said she has been championing the school in Barrhaven for several months, but is disappointed a new public high school isn’t yet planned for Riverside South. “I think we definitely need something in Barrhaven,” she said. “The kids are in portables and the schools are bursting at the seams. But I will continue to work for a high school in Riverside South.” This year, work will begin on 43 new schools across the province, with another 30 receiving additions or retrofits. The complete provincial funding announcement will mean approximately $650 million in new schools, as well as renovations and additions to existing schools. The money will be doled out over the next three years. With files from Emma Jackson

Water ban eases on rotational basis

Know your zone before watering

Continued from front The full ban will be enforced on weekends, but the city will open area splash pads on Saturdays and Sundays. The complications don’t end when residents determine which of the five zones they live in (go to to enter your address). The restrictions have only been lifted for watering plants and trees by hand (not sprinklers), filling kiddie pools and containers such as rain barrels and cleaning recycling bins or garbage cans. Topping up pools and hot tubs is not allowed, nor is cleaning your car, washing your driveway or any unattended watering, such as using a sprinkler. And don’t even think about breaking out your pressure washer. Businesses, including car washes and garden centres, must still follow the full ban. Rachel Carkner, an old Barrhaven resident who ventured down the street to hear the announcement on June 14, said the revised restrictions might only serve to muddy the waters. “I think it could get a little complicated,” she said. Carkner and her sister Hayley said the ban hasn’t affected them as much as they expected, but added that easing the ban will make summer more bearable and fun for children. Dixon Weir, the city’s general manager of environmental services said he is confident southend residents will be diligent in following the revised restrictions of the partial ban. “People are very interested in protecting their community,” he said. “We’re comfortable with this or we wouldn’t have come forward with this,” he added. “At this time, every drop of water counts,” said Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches. “If demand on the residential system is too high, we will have to return to the full ban.” While the end of the ban has already been moved up twice – the most recently announced completion date is July 15 – and extra pipes connecting to the nearby Hunt Club Road water main have added more capacity

Different parts of south Ottawa will be allowed some outdoor water use on weekdays. Visit and enter your address to determine your zone. • Monday: Zone 1 – Riverside South/Manotick/Winding Way. • Tuesday: Zone 2 – Old Barrhaven between Greenbank and 416 north of Strandherd and including Cedarhill and Orchard Estates. • Wednesday: Zone 3 – Longfields/Knollsbrook between Greenbank and Woodroffe north of Strandherd. • Thursday: Zone 4 – Davidson Heights/Chapman Mills between Woodroffe and Prince of Wales north of Strandherd. • Friday: Zone 5 – Chapman Mills South/Half Moon Bay/ Stonebridge everything south of Strandherd. ON YOUR DESIGNATED DAY, YOU CAN: • Use a garden hose to water plants, gardens, trees and shrubs by hand. • Fill kiddie pools, rain barrels and other containers. • Use a hose to clean your green bin, recycling bins or garbage cans. YOU CANNOT • Use sprinklers, pressure washers, and in-ground watering or irrigation systems. • Wash your car. • Fill pools or hot tubs. • Leave watering hoses unattended. • Water on weekends. • Clean driveways or anything outdoors.

Splash pads have reopened in south Ottawa and water may be used outdoors if residents follow the strict rotation detailed at right. to the system, there still isn’t enough water to allow normal summer use. Weir said easing the restrictions will result in a 20 to 25 per cent increase in water usage in the south end compared to the current consumption, but

that is still much less than the amount that would be used in a typical summer. The ban was applied to 80,000 residents about 50 days ago, after the Woodroofe Avenue watermain failed. Construction is ongoing to fix

the main, but in the meantime, if people in south-end communities use too much water, it could depressurize the system and allow groundwater to contaminate the treated tap water. The city says the ban is necessary to prevent that health risk.

Taxi driver Tesfai Asfaha receives the Driver Role Model Award from Coun. Mark Taylor and general manager Susan Jones at the City of Ottawa’s Taxi Driver Appreciation Celebration on June 14.

The city presented special awards to six Ottawa taxi drivers for their excellent service at its second annual Taxi Driver Appreciation Celebration, held June 14 at city hall. The ceremony recognizes the service provided by taxi drivers in the city. Customers and members of Ottawa’s taxi industry nominated candidates for five award categories: excellent customer service, access for all, driver role model, heroism and lifetime achievement. “Today’s six award recipients have provided exemplary customer service through their kind and heroic actions,” said Coun. Mark Taylor, chair of the community and protective services committee. “Their actions remind us why customer service in the taxi industry is so important to our community and economy. These helping hands and smiling faces play an important role in our transportation network every day.” Barrhaven and south Ottawa recognized two drivers from the area with top honours. Marc Khouri of Barrhaven

won the Access for All Award. He has been driving for West-Way Taxi for nine years. He is recognized by his customers for his caring service and positive attitude. ROLE MODEL Tesfai Asfaha was recognized with the Driver Role Model Award. He drives in GloucesterSouth Nepean. During Asfah’s 12-year career as a driver, he has demonstrated leadership and support for his colleagues. He says that while the job of driving a taxi can be stressful, it is also very rewarding and he his fortunate to have so many good friends in the business.

Be a donor Imagine having the potential to save eight lives and enhance 75 more. It’s all possible by registering online as an organ and tissue donor. More than 1,500 Ontarians are on the list waiting for an organ transplant. Every three days, someone in this province dies while waiting for a life-saving transplant. Thousands more are waiting for a tissue transplant that could help enhance their lives. You can change that. All you have to do is take a few minutes out of your day to register as an organ and tissue donor online. Signed donor cards are no longer an acceptable option; the card may not be available when the information is needed and your wishes will go unknown.

The online registry stores your information in a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care database and shares your decision to donate with the Trillium Gift of Life Network, Ontario’s organ and tissue donation agency. When you register, you ensure your decision to donate will be carried out in the event of your death – donation is only an option after all life-saving efforts have failed. Granted, death is a morbid subject – especially when it comes unexpectedly. But your organs and tissue won’t do any good for anyone when they’re six feet under. Corneas could help a woman see the world around her. A skin graft could help a burn victim heal. A new pair of lungs could

give a child with cystic fibrosis the breath to carry on. A new heart could give a father the chance to watch his son grow up. Anyone can donate regardless of pre-existing medical conditions and lifestyle. You can also choose what to give. The doctors assess the organs and tissue and make the decision from there as to what’s viable. The only requirement is that you are 16 years of age or older. Don’t leave the burden of choice up to your loved ones. Register online at www., visit a ServiceOntario centre or download and mail in the Gift of Life consent form to become an organ and tissue donor. Save a life. Save eight lives.


Yet another good reason to head for the lake Next week the fighting will start – the people who want to go off to the cottage for Canada Day against the people who want to stay in town and see Will and Kate. There are other subgroups, the people who want to stay in town to see the jazz festival and the people who want to stay in town for the fireworks, but that’s quite a different matter. You might think this upcoming battle is a battle of the sexes – the women wanting to see the royal couple and the men wanting to go fix the dock – but that’s old-fashioned stereotyped thinking. It’s more complicated than that. Back in April there were an awful lot of people, both male and female, who got up at five in the morning to watch the royal wedding on TV. Around that time, I remarked casually to a group of like-minded people that it was crazy and perhaps even un-Canadian of the CBC to send Peter Mansbridge over to London to cover the wedding just three days before a Canadian federal election. Turns out that many people were less like-minded than I thought. There was much leaping to the defence of the CBC and defending of the historical importance of the

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town royal wedding. This, of course, doesn’t mean I was wrong. Anyway, the whole argument will now start up again. Some people will say that the way to go about being a good Canadian on Canada Day is to go to a lake and do something with a canoe or a tree. In doing so we are honouring our ancestors and our heritage. Others will argue that the Crown is part of what makes Canada special and that we should salute it in person whenever the opportunity arises. Not all of these people are old codgers. Now, it’s true that the motorcade isn’t going to stop for them, nor will they be able to get close enough to salute, but it’s the thought that counts. It should also be noted that there is a rapidly growing number of Canadians

whose heritage includes neither lakes and canoes nor royal couples from England. If you’re in that group, you might be very confused by it all, and should maybe just hang out at the jazz festival, where neither God Save the Queen nor O Canada is likely to be played. Mind you, you might hear the CF-18s and the 21 guns. One of the reasons the monarchy has survived so long in this country is that people tend to be rather good-natured about it. It helps that most of our royal visitors in recent times have been rather pleasant and it is difficult even for a committed republican to direct the necessary amount of outrage against them. Will and Kate, too, seem quite nice. If you want to work up a case against a royal visit it is necessary to search for some other reason. The only one that springs to mind is that having a princess in our midst might encourage more of our Canadian little girls to want to be princesses. Feminists and other sensible people have been worrying about the princess phenomenon for some time now – parents dressing their daughters up in frilly pink costumes, sometimes even

with little crowns and tiaras. It is the result of a marketing ploy some people blame on the Disney empire. Whoever is at fault, it isn’t doing much to persuade our daughters to become doctors, engineers, soldiers, hockey players or any of the things they can be that don’t involve marrying princes. It’s unlikely that Kate, when she gets to Ottawa, will be wearing a crown or anything frilly and pink, but you can never be too careful, which is why heading for the lake isn’t such a bad idea. Everybody knows you can’t be a princess and climb a tree at the same time.

Greely man pushing for station in village DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN

A Greely man is calling for a complete overhaul to the emergency service structure in his community, starting with a new ambulance station in the village. Paul Ryan said there needs to be a guarantee that ambulances will be able to serve residents in a quick and timely manner. To increase the odds of doing so, the Greely Community Association member is suggesting the city should turn the old library – which used to be a fire hall – into a station for an ambulance. “It is the perfect location for an emergency services outfit for the south end,” Ryan said. “They can be there and not feel they’re encroaching on the fire department.” Right now, the closest rural Ottawa posts are in Metcalfe, eight kilometres away, Manotick, 14 kilometres, and Osgoode, 16 kilometres. Each post houses one ambulance. Pierre Poirier, deputy chief of the Ottawa paramedic service, said there are no immediate plans to fulfill Ryan’s suggestion. He said there are no guarantees that any of the three nearest stations are manned at any given time. An ambulance could be called in from outside the city’s boundaries if need be, from communities such as Winchester. “Right now, the area is pretty well served,” Poirier said. “Could it be better

served? Possibly. But we don’t have that on our plan right now.” Poirier added that it would take five minutes to get to Greely from Metcalfe. But that’s if an ambulance is stationed there, Ryan said. Through conversations with Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson, Ryan said no log is kept with the city to mandate the amount of time each ambulance is stationed at its particular post. NO DATA “Why don’t they have (a log) so we can see what the time is?” Ryan asked. Poirier said no log kept is because each ambulance must start and end its shift at the appropriate post – 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. – and is tracked in real time by the paramedics’ automatic vehicle location system. Calls to Thompson were not returned by press time. “For us it’s always whoever is the closest in time,” Poirier said of the dispatch procedure. But Ryan still believes too many ambulances are waiting at the city’s hospitals while waiting for a call instead of going back to their post. Ryan said he saw an abundance of emergency vehicles while recently visiting his wife, who was recently at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital while undergoing heart surgery. He believes the time is now for the community of 6,000 people to be better served. “Clearly all of us here in the south are at a disadvantage if all the ambulances are stationed at the Civic or the General,” Ryan said.

Infill recommendations delayed

Residents and community associations that were hoping for some changes to the rules guiding infill housing in the city will have to wait. Recommendations on how the city can better enforce its guidelines for how infill housing – homes that fill smaller spaces and are often taller and lack yard space – have been delayed. A public meeting was set to be held this month, but that won’t be happening until September. FEEDBACK The city has received so much feedback on the controversial guidelines that staff need more time to sift through all the ideas and co-ordinate with affected city departments, said Selma Hassan, who is in charge of the project. People came out in droves and sent many emails bemoaning the lack of teeth

in the city’s rules governing infill homes. Many community members say inappropriate infill is slowly ruining the fabric of their communities. Although the city discourages it, many infill homes end up using the first floor as a garage, which changes the streetscape. Rules about how much of the front yard can be taken up by a driveway are also frequently ignored, according to a study Hassan conducted last year. Those were among the many issues Hassan is trying to reconcile with the city’s rules. As she sifts through more than 400 comments and suggestions, developers have also been meeting with community members who are interested in the challenges posed by small-scale infill housing. Development industry stakeholders and representatives from community associations gathered last week to continue the dialogue about this issue, Hassan said. “It’s an opportunity to create some kind of working relationship,” she said.

Dharma Developments second new home community

Orville Station is set to be located at the former site of the Canadian Pacific Stittsville Railway Station. This is a mixed-use project in which the residential phase of the development consists of 36 condominium suites in the heart of Stittsville Village. All models are priced starting from the mid $200’s. These stylish one bedroom lofts and two bedroom suites are ideal for home buyers looking for a low-maintenance, modern lifestyle in a healthy environment. Perhaps some of the most compelling aspects of this development are the location – in Stittsville because of the nature of this quaint village, but also the goals of the developer which include building a community for people that is focused on people. Providing those from different socialeconomic status either the opportunity to buy their first home in Stittsville or a home to down-size into and allow them stay in the community they love. The development was designed to make the best use of the land available on the site, in order to provide home owners with green space to admire

and enjoy; something that most condominium communities don’t provide. To give people a clean, healthy environment where they can breathe easy. To bring more people into the community without taking too much land to do it, help revitalize the south end of Stittsville Main Street and support the new and old businesses in the immediate vicinity. To take advantage of the public transit that is available right outside the front doors of Orville Station. Dharma is one step closer to bringing this innovative and important community to Stittsville. With foundation complete for the first phase and phase two selling, It also provides an example for other developers and the greater City of Ottawa to embrace sustainable development. With less and less land becoming available to developers at city limits to build homes, it is more important than ever to build consciously and responsibly within city limits. Building homes that fit within the existing community promote health, community growth and grow tax revenue for the city.

Dr. Bruce G. Firestone, a broker at Partners Advantage GMAC and Professor at Ottawa University is a proponent of this type of development and has shown support for Orville Station citing that we need to “build cities for people; cars are an important consideration, but they should be a lower priority.” He also thinks that if density in a neighbourhood increases, so should the property values of the surrounding homes as it brings more people to live, work and shop in the area. This increases demand because more people will want to live and work in the area and so pricing should increase as well.” This movement towards sustainable development of quality homes and maximized use of land helps our natural environment and maintains or improves the health of people within communities. We will see benefits for years to come – better health preservation which could lower impacts on the healthcare system, increased value in home investments, lower energy consumption and greater sense of community.

IBM innovation inspires creativity in students LJ MATHESON

Students from St. Andrew Catholic School in Barrhaven had a chance to strut their creative and innovative genius on June 15 as IBM employees were on site to encourage critical and creative thinking. IBM’s Rob Ashe, business analytics executive, encouraged student participation to kick off the event, then volunteers led Grade 6 students through a series of tasks designed to teach them how to “think outside the box.” These included team building exercises like making something as tall as possible with six of eight items given to them and it had to be strong enough to hold a ping pong ball. Another exercise included using 15 sheets of paper to engineer the tallest tower possible; and, using six paper cups and a rubber band, create a 3-2-1 style pyramid without communicating verbally with team members. “It’s great to see kids this age work together,” said Ashe. “They are very creative and are bending the rules. That’s the key to innovation... breaking the rules.” One of the students in Valerie Bailey’s class said she enjoyed the exercise. “It’s not like anything I have ever done before,” she said. “It shows that it’s not just my idea but everyone working together as a whole group and it’s neat to see all our ideas come together.” Bailey said she enjoyed watching her students come up with various ideas to solve the same problems. “It’s about 21st century learning; creative problem solving and finding answers together,” Bailey said. “We do similar exercises in math and the students really enjoy the hands-on part of it and trying to come up with solutions together. I think the learning has more meaning when they are constructive in groups like this.” Thousands of IBMers around the world, including hundreds of volunteers in Ottawa, dedicate their time and talents to help improve their communities.

Canada Day committee nets cash Celebrations at Clarke Fields receive boost from federal fund

File photo

The young and the old can enjoy Barrhaven’s Canada Day at Clarke Fields. The event received a boost from a federal fund on June 17.

The Canada Day celebrations in Barrhaven got a boost with a cheque from the federal government for $11,875. Nepean-Carleton MPP Pierre Poilievre announced the funding at the Clarke Fields site on June 17. “Canada Day is an opportunity to celebrate the country we live in and I am happy that the federal government is encouraging this effort through the Celebrate Canada Fund,” Poilievre said. The funds come from the Ministry of Canadian Heritage — which provides financial support for activities organized during the “celebrate Canada” period from June 21 to July 1. The funds given to the Barrhaven Canada Day celebration will go towards the Canada Day Parade, fireworks, live entertainment and games and activities for children. Organizers said it is expected that 30,000 people are expected to participate in the celebration. “We are very excited for what we have planned for this year’s Canada Day celebrations at Clarke Fields Park,” said Darrell Bartraw, Chair of the Mattamy Homes Canada Day in Barrhaven. “We hope that you will agree that this is the biggest and best Barrhaven Canada Day Celebration yet.”

THE OTTAWA HOSPITAL FOUNDATION In October 2009, Rhea Ferguson’s father, Bill, was

diagnosed with esophageal gastric cancer at age 59. After successfully undergoing treatment at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre, the family received some devastating news – the cancer was back, and this time, it was inoperable. Ferguson also knows more about the need for cancer research than the average person. She recently completed her Master’s degree in cancer epidemiology at McGill University, has worked with cancer researcher Dr. John Bell at The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) and is currently working as a database manager for the Hospital’s ovarian cancer bank. “Cancer research has always been a big passion for me,” said the 26-year-old Ottawa native. “There’s a history of cancer in my family. I lost all my grandparents to it.”

Ferguson, who is riding as a member of the Cancer Trailblazers, the OHRI Cancer Centre team, said she reached her fundraising goal of $1,500 in just two weeks. “People are so generous,” she said. “Everyone knows someone who is affected by the disease. “It would be amazing to have another treatment option that is… not so hard on the body,” she said. “The research needs to continue.” With her father’s health rapidly declining, she said she will be thinking about him when she does the ride on Sept. 10. “I’m hoping to be able to tell him about it,” she said. To support Rhea Ferguson’s ride, or to join her mother, Sheila Ferguson, as a volunteer, visit

Looking for a way to make a difference, she learned about Ride the Rideau, a 100 km cycling fundraiser from Ottawa to Merrickville to support cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital, and immediately signed up. “It’s raising money for where I work, and it’s going to where my dad was treated,” she said. “It was a perfect fit.” Ferguson’s mother, Sheila, also got on board as a Ride the Rideau volunteer.

Ride the Rideau participant Rhea Ferguson with her parents, Sheila and Bill.

“My mom and I are involved because my dad is dying of cancer,” she said. “We want to do something for him. It’s a personal cause for both of us.”

New Greely branch of Ottawa Public Library opens Building almost triple the size of former library STAFF The new Greely branch of the Ottawa Public Library officially opened to the public last week with many enjoying the modern and bright facility that is about three times larger than the previous one. Residents can look forward to enjoying a new local branch thanks to a joint $1.2 million investment from all three levels of government. Library customers joined federal, provincial and municipal representatives on June 13 to celebrate the opening of the new facility. “Libraries help shape our cities and neighbourhoods by promoting learning, research, reading and community building,” said Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre, who is the parliamentary secretary to the minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities. “Our government’s investment in this beautiful new building will enable the Ottawa Public Library to more easily serve the growing community of Greely through its numerous programs, activities and resources.” At approximately 280 square metres,

the new library is fully accessible and features designated areas for adults, teens and children, self-serve kiosks, a meeting room and additional space for children’s programming aimed at Greely’s growing population. “Through our Open Ontario Plan, we’re building foundations for success and prosperity throughout our province,” said MPP Bob Chiarelli, Ontario’s minister of Infrastructure. “The government of Ontario is proud to be part of this new modern library, which will be a community hub where families can learn and grow for many years to come.” ‘GREAT RESOURCE’ Mayor Jim Watson said the library will be a great resource for residents of Greely and the surrounding community. “Libraries are an important place where residents can gather and learn about each other and their world,” Watson said. “We are proud to work with our federal and provincial partners to deliver this new library branch in this flourishing part of the city.” Under the infrastructure stimulus fund, the governments of Canada and Ontario each contributed about $400,000 toward this project. The City of Ottawa has contributed the remaining costs.



take action, heroes! VOLUNTEER TODAY AT RIDETHERIDEAU.CA You don’t have to get on a bike to make a difference. We’re looking for enthusiastic on-foot folks with the same passion as our cyclists. The success of Ride the Rideau will be directly related to volunteers like you. Seize the opportunity to change the world for the better—support cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital. Every hero has a date with destiny: yours is September 10, 2011. Our riders need your support. Are you in?







Cool cats raise top dollar

• Be a non-smoker for life • Overcome fears and phobias • Reduce stress and anxiety • Sleep better • Reduce weight

The city’s coolest cats managed to raised top dollar for the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) on June 16. More than 150 guests and 17 “top dogs” and “cool cats” turned out and raised $75,000 during the charity’s first bailor-jail fundraiser as part of the groundbreaking campaign. Volunteers were “imprisoned” until they solicited their own bail from friends and family. “We were just blown away by the response,” said Bruce Roney, the executive director of the OHS. Even before the event, the groundbreaking campaign had garnered 85 per cent of the OHS goal of $9.5 million, according to Roney. IN THE CAGE The June 17 event called on pet lovers across the city to do time in a dog cage trying to raise money. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli had managed to raise $1,200 part way through the night. “This is a great event and the new facility is going to really benefit the ward,” he said. Dave Smythe, who said he was jailed for stealing food from his chocolate lab named Truffles, managed to make his

goal and was sprung from the joint. Smythe got involved because he did some of the plumbing for the OHS and was asked to participate. “It’s a chance for people to see the new facility before we move the animals in,” Roney said. Aside from the pledges, some of the funds came from a silent auction — which included donated items such as a Ben Babelowsky print and a round of golf at Mont Tremblant. The animals will all be moved into the new facility at on West Hunt Club Road — just east of Merivale Road on June 24. The building is more than three times the size of the older Champagne Avenue facility. Roney said the air quality is also largely improved, nearing that of hospitals. The animals will be housed in glass enclosures — something Roney said will help reduce their anxiety. “Also people just seem to subconsciously value things more when they are behind glass,” Roney said. There will also be a yearround cat porch and more surgical tables. Roney said the new facility would have better hours and they plan to offer things like obedience classes, grooming and classes for pregnant women on how to introduce your pet to your new baby.

Your neighbourhood could be getting its very own Rink of Dreams. An outdoor refrigerated rink at city hall planned for next winter is causing a stir, but the Ottawa Senators Foundation has bigger plans to create a series of similar rinks across the city and region. Danielle Robinson, president of the Sens foundation, said the NHL-sized rinks would have permanent boards and concrete platforms that would be used as basketball courts in the summer; however, they won’t be refrigerated or maintained by ice-resurfacers like the Rink of Dreams at city hall. It’s part of the foundation’s new focus on providing access

to social and recreational activities for kids outside school hours, she said. “Those kids in those neighbourhoods, they really don’t have a lot of additional funding within their families to get out and participate in sport and reaction opportunities,” Robinson said. “The idea around this is to provide a facility and the resources to make it much more accessible.” Locations for the rinks haven’t been decided, but Jim Durrell from the Sens foundation said the group is looking at putting the first rink somewhere in Vanier. If that rink is built this fall, it will serve as a project for the foundation’s yet-to-be-named community rinks program, Robinson said. The foundation is remaining tight-lipped on details about

the program, including how many rinks will be set up and where, or how much the project could cost. Those details will be revealed during an official announcement in early fall, Robinson said. Steve Kanellakos, the deputy city manager of operations, said the program will improve year-round recreational opportunities throughout the city. “It’s not just about this,” he said, referring to the showpiece outdoor rink at city hall that was approved by city council on June 8. “This is about improving our neighbourhoods across the city.” While these smaller neighbourhood rinks won’t be refrigerated, they will be an improvement over the regular outdoor rinks the city sets up, Kanellakos said.

“It will be a much more enhanced experienced,” Kanellakos said. The city currently has about 300 temporary outdoor rinks, and Robinson said some of the new rinks the foundation sets up could replace some of the more rundown ones that already exist. There could also be new rinks in areas that don’t already have one, she said. The cost to build and set up the rinks would be absorbed by the Sens foundation through its fundraising efforts for the Rink of Dreams program. Maintenance and operations for the rinks would be done through the city’s existing rinks program, which offers grants to community groups to take on the task of maintaining the rinks using volunteer labour.

Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week -JUNE 23 2011




Barrhaven Public School Grade 3 and 4 teacher Christine de Wit has been recognized as one of Ontario’s top educators. De Wit was selected as one of three provincial winners of the 2011 TVOKids Best Teacher Ever Contest on June 17. “I’m honoured,� de Wit said. “It came as a complete surprise.� The fifth annual contest ran from May 2 to June 12 and received 9,300 entries from children across the province eager to recognize their teachers. The contest invited kids to nominate their favourite teacher and tell TVOKids what makes them the best teacher ever. Grade 4 student Adeline Travis nominated her teacher because she created a positive learning environment, which allowed her to improve her skills. “I noticed my reading spelling got a lot better,� Adeline said. “It’s been a lot of fun.� De Wit said she was touched that one of her students would recommend her. “I had no idea,� she said. “She (Adeline) did it very quietly.�

City takes stand on elder abuse JENNIFER MCINTOSH

The city followed the rest of the world in acknowledging June 15 as Elder Abuse Awareness Day. The day has been recognized internationally since 2006 by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and was recognized with an official proclamation by Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli on June 15. Joyce Drouin, the elder abuse prevention coordinator for the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre (NROCRC), said she was happy to see the city mark the important date. The elder abuse referral and response program at NROCRC gets $35,000 in annual funding from the Champlain Local Health Integration Network — an administrative body that manages health funding for agencies across eastern Ontario. That allows for Drouin to work parttime at NROCRC taking calls from the public concerning possible cases of abuse. “We take the call and then we assess whether the police need to be involved, or if they are in crisis and need to be moved. Then they are linked to the appropriate services,� Drouin said. Drouin said if she had a wish list she would love to have funding for a transition worker to help community centres get connected with at-risk seniors in their area. “Our territory is the whole city,� she said. “I would love to be able to go to places like the Carlington Community Centre and introduce a senior and then let them take it from there.� Drouin said she would also like to see transition workers available for seniors who have to leave their homes to help with issues like banking and phone hookups. Drouin said she has seen some increase in the number of calls she takes over the last two years, but she thinks it’s due in part to increased awareness of elder abuse.

Winners from three grade categories were selected from all the entries. The teachers selected in the draw each won a $400 gift card from Scholar’s Choice and a notebook computer. For nominating de Wit, Adeline receives a $100 gift card from Scholar’s Choice, an iPod Shuffle and a pizza party for her class.

Barrhaven Ottawa South This Week -JUNE 23 2011

First Day of Summer Sale!

It appears a first-place showing at the Gloucester Fair is only the tip of the iceberg for Team Eatapedia. The team, led by Barrhaven resident John Thomson, had only planned on entering the fair’s Smoked to the Bone competition to gain experience after winning as amateurs in 2010. But to their surprise, they won the chicken-cooking portion of the event thanks to a tender capote chicken rub and Kansas City sauce combination, earning $1,000 in the process. They will now form a team with local chef Steph (the Grilling Gourmet) Legari and the rest of his kitchen crew in an international barbecue event hosted at American Ambassador David Jacobson’s residence on July 4 for 3,500 people. “We’ve been working on this since January,” Thomson said. “It has been a lot of work.” Thomson began his elaborate barbecuing after a co-worker bought a smoker and invited him over to try ribs – which Thomson used to cook by broiling them. “It was like nothing I’ve ever tasted,” the 43-year-old said. Thompson bought a wood-based smok-

er soon after with the intention of competition in events since propane is strictly prohibited in barbecue events. He eventually connected with Stittsville’s Paul Firlotte and Winchester’s Mike Hynes to create Team Eatapedia, an online recipe registry, which started gaining notoriety. The team visited Georgia to train with American barbecue expert Myron Mixon and even got some tips from Danielle (Diva Q) Dimovski – one of Thomson’s favourites. “The barbecue crowd is such an accommodating group,” he said. “Everybody is super friendly and everyone is in it for the spirit of barbecue.” The competitors are provided with meat and given the night to season, slice and dice and begin cooking the respective recipes in half-hour intervals. They are then judged by certified judged for their food’s appearance, texture, tenderness and taste. Although the team didn’t fare as well at the fair in the other events – finishing 11th overall out of 13 teams in rib, pulled pork and beef brisket – Thomson said it was an invaluable learning experience. “It’s a hobby,” he said. “The main reason we do it is to have fun and meet great people.”
