EMC news – Centretown’s community association is asking all residents to come out and participate in shaping the future of their neighbourhood, which could include restricting height allowances for developers. The Centretown Citizens Community Association will host a public meeting on May 30 on the Centertown’s community design plan at the McNabb Community Centre from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The association is seeking input from all area residents in an effort to ensure the document is what the community wants. “It is important to get everyone to come out and participate,” said Joan Spice, an association board member who is organizing the event. Spice asked Coun. Peter Hume and Diane Holmes and the city’ general manager of planning and growth management John Moser to attend. As of May 17 only Holmes has confirmed, Spice said. The meeting will consist of a few opening remarks and presentations, including one from board member Judy Forest, who will present the community design plan at the beginning of the meeting. At the association’s May 15 meeting, Spice presented the most recent plans for the process. Board members concluded it is very important for residents to come out and participate to ensure the plan is what area residents’ desire. Holmes agreed. “You want to attract people to the meeting, have them be in favour of the CDP (community design plan) as it is,” Holmes said. See ZONING, page 4

A battle for bragging rights Youth from a Lowertown Community Resource Centre program celebrated police week with a tour of the Elgin Street police station on May 16. The youth were planning to challenge a number of officers in a game of basketball, but an impromptu opportunity to speak with the police unit’s tactical force captured the group’s attention instead.

Community supports suicide memorial Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - A contentious proposal to create a mentalhealth memorial on the site where Nadia Kajouji’s body was discovered along the Rideau River garnered the support of the Old Ottawa East Community Association at a meeting on May 7. The proposal to mark the spot at Clegg’s Landing where the body of the 18-year-old Carleton University student was found on April 20, 2008 after she took her own life was met with some opposition at an initial meeting on March 13. Kajouji’s well-publicized disappearance was followed

by the discovery she had taken her own life at the urging of a Minnesota nurse whom she chatted with online. He was found guilty of aiding her suicide last year. The circumstance is an opportunity to create a positive response to a unique situation, said Catherine Pacella, a community association board member who is now leading the memorial initiative, adding that it could be an opportunity to raise awareness and create support for those affected by mental health issues. It was suggested that the memorial might gain more community support if it was a simple marker featuring

Kajouji’s name and the dates of her birth and death, but some community association members felt that would be a missed opportunity. “For me, the important thing is the recognition of that story,” said board member Stephen Pope. “Initially, it was a strong statement on mental health,” he said, adding that he was becoming less interested in the project as talk strayed from that mission. There was still vocal opposition to the idea before it was approved by the community association’s board on May 7. Jim Strang, a resident of King’s Landing, said he was

“very much against” spending public or community association money on any kind of memorial. “If it’s about grieving, that can be done in their own home, church or even under a tree,” Strang said, adding that he would rather see community association funds spent on something “more lively for children.” Board member Ron Rose felt the community association should not spend its money on the memorial, but that individuals interested in such as project could contribute their own funds.

Main library on the renovation list Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - For the ďŹ rst time ever, the crumbling Main library branch is on the list for ďŹ xing up. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the Ottawa Public Library has completely given up on ďŹ nding a new home for the beleaguered branch, the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief executive and board chairwoman say, but it acknowledges the fact that the branch canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continue without some help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This puts it front and center,â&#x20AC;? said Jan Harder, library board chairwoman and councillor for Barrhaven Ward. She was quick to add that a new Main branch is not Ottawa Public Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normally, what we do is separate Main and leave it all by itself, but since we are in not in a position to be building a brand new library, it has to

be included,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still operating â&#x20AC;Ś it needs to be taken care of,â&#x20AC;? said Danielle McDonald, the new head of the library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m concerned, while we have it and while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still here, it needs to be looked at as a branch. Lots of people visit that branch and it is tired looking. It needs to be addressed.â&#x20AC;? The report, which the library board received on May 14, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t identify what renovations will be undertaken at the Main branch or how much the city plans to spend. It simply puts Main to the top of the list for renovations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is our biggest ďŹ xer-upper for sure,â&#x20AC;? Harder said. A condition report for the branch will come to the library board next month. That report was requested in 2011 to examine the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remain-

ing lifespan, the potential for expansion or other uses and renovation options and costs. By all accounts, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look good. Harder said one of the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walls has pulled away

from the ďŹ&#x201A;oor and a structural engineer must be consulted before a stack of books can be moved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to decide whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the best interests of the library. To invest

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what can we do?â&#x20AC;? Harder said. The branch was built in 1971, opened in 1974 and received its last signiďŹ cant modiďŹ cation in 2004. Close to 3,000 people pass

through the Main branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doors each day. It has the Ottawa Public Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest circulation at 910,461 materials annually, compared to the next highest, Rosemount, at 260,540.

File photo

With a lack of options â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and money - to relocate Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Main library branch, the crumbling facility has been added to the list for renovations for the first time ever.

Bingham Park gets $80K funding boost Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A group of Lowertown residents who are looking to revitalize Bingham Park are looking for input from the surrounding community to determine how the project should proceed. The plan to revitalize the park, located at 145 Cathcart St., began five years ago. Organized by Lowertown resident Michael Kirkpatrick, a committee was formed and has been meeting regularly and has applied for a number of grants to fund the project. The committee has received funding from the Chance Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of children, and Desjardins Caisse populaire Rideau d’Ottawa, along with a matching grant from the city, giving the committee about $80,000 to work with, according to Kirkpatrick. With money available, the committee now wants to hear from residents about what changes and improvements they’d like to see at the park. “We want to get as many people’s thoughts on what they want the park to be,” Kirkpatrick said. The committee is planning to conduct a survey to solicit ideas from the community. The committee’s plan for the park envisions a histori-

cal neighborhood park that becomes a focal point for the community and promotes local pride. “We picture it as a place for anyone to go, kids play, older kids might want to do exercises, and some people might want to have a picnic and there is so much that a park can do for a community and it is a source of pride,” Kirkpatrick said. The committee would also like to see an improved play structure, something that would appeal to all ages. It would also like to see new park benches installed. “That is our focus, but there are some other ideas, like converting the infield to grass,” Kirkpatrick said of the baseball diamond located at the park. Other ideas that have been discussed include commemorating the history of the park, originally donated to the community in the 1890s by thenmayor Samuel Bingham, who wanted a safe place for children of the area to play. The survey will ask residents questions about the importance of the park and how often it is used. It will also touch on the ways people use the park and ask about any safety or cleanliness concerns. The survey will also go into detail about play struc-

ing forward to the day when the park finally gets its makeover. “We have all been working

hard to make the improvements so when the revitalization happens the whole community will benefit from it

and it will be nice to know our efforts made a difference for all of Lowertown’s families,” Kirkpatrick said.

Battle regarding downtown zoning in plan From CENTRETOWN, page 1

The current zoning for the area allows for 12-storey buildings. According to Holmes, developers would like to see the zoning changed to 27-storeys – a height the community does not openly wel-

come. Under the recently approved Section 37 guidelines, any proposed building that is 25 per cent or more over the zoning height would be subject to having to pay out community benefits. “If developers win on the

Centretown design plan then there will be nothing left for us to discuss, and that is what they want,” Holmes said. Spice is looking to garner support for the current zoning in the plan and urges residents to come out and voice their opinions.

Correction A May 7 article titled “Museums increase ‘connexion’ with new loyalty card” incorrectly stated that all 10 museums in the Ottawa Museum Network would be participating in the Connexion Card program. In fact, Nepean Museum is not part of the program.

Lowertown association seeks new members Association would like to foster an better connection with its community Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - In an effort to better serve the community, the Lowertown Community Association will be knocking on doors this spring to promote its work and increase membership. An estimated 6,000 to 8,000 people reside in the neighbourhood adjacent to Parliament Hill. Vera Etches, the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s membership chairwoman, said she would like to reach out at least 2,000 of those residents over the course of the campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hear from our political partners the best way to increase interest and members is to go door to door,â&#x20AC;? Etches said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we are looking for people to go down streets the ďŹ rst and second week of June.â&#x20AC;? Lowertown is deďŹ ned by three waterways, the Rideau Canal to the west, the Ottawa River to the north and the Rideau River to the east. Rideau Street is the southern boarder, dividing Lowertown and Sandy Hill. At a meeting on May 14,

residents from the section of Lowertown east of King Edward Avenue expressed concerns that the road divides the community. Six lanes wide and regularly clogged with truck trafďŹ c from the nearby MacdonaldCartier Bridge, King Edward Avenue has long been a barrier running through the community. President Marc Aubin said one of the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals is to forge stronger ties across the entire community, and the executive team is always looking for ways to reach out to the residents on the east side of the community. One of those residents, Nancy Miller-Chenier, suggested hosting association meetings on the east side of King Edward as a way of attracting more residents from the area. Miller-Chenier has been staging heritage walks in here neighbourhood, which has also stirred interest in both the community and the association. Aubin encouraged current members of the association to play a part as well,

Board members Liz Bernstein, Leah Fleetwood and Nic Moyer of the Lowertown Community Association attended a board retreat over the winter to discuss the future directions the association would like to take. The association aims to increase their membership this spring. taking any chance they get to sign residents up on the association distribution list. Unlike many other associations in the city, there is no cost to join the Lowertown Community Association, something that has sparked debate among the board members. Some feel the lack of a

fee serves as a selling point for membership, while others feel it restricts the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking at it, but we are not sure what the policy would be,â&#x20AC;? Aubin said. Etches added there is a lot of potential for new members

in the 29 high-rise condominiums scattered across the community, noting there are condominium associations that could be contacted for potential partnership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very important area and needs a focused effort,â&#x20AC;? Etches said.

Some residents at the meeting agreed to participate in the door-knocking efforts. Etches encourages interested residents to sign up as a member by emailing the Lowertown Community Association at info@lowertownbasseville.ca.

NOTICE OF STUDY COMMENCEMENT Watermain Relocation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lees Avenue to Hurdman Bridge Pumping Station Class Environmental Assessment and Functional Design The City of Ottawa has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment and Functional Design Study to address relocation of the existing 1220 mm watermain located under Highway 417 from Lees Avenue to Hurdman Bridge Pumping Station (HBPS). The main objectives of the study are to identify a preferred route for the watermain and develop a project phasing plan. There is currently a long overlap of the existing watermain and Highway 417, which will be exacerbated by the upcoming highway widening. The need to relocate this portion of the watermain was identiďŹ ed in the Risk Assessment for the Highway 417 Transmission Watermain as a long-term solution. The relocation would reduce the risk of impact to the travelled lanes in the case of a failure of the watermain, as well as to improve accessibility for maintenance purposes. The report recommended that a route selection be undertaken in the near future to secure corridors for its relocation. This watermain is the primary feed for the areas east of the Rideau River and north of Industrial Avenue, as well as the entire East Urban Community. This study will be carried out in accordance with the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA). The study will include identiďŹ cation and evaluation of alternative alignments, selection of a preferred alternative and a functional design of the preferred alternative. There is an opportunity at any time during the Class EA process for interested persons to provide comments. With the exception of personal information, comments received become part of the public record. Information about the study will be maintained on the following web page: ottawa.ca/wmleeshurdman For more information, or if you would like your name added to the mailing list, please contact:

Ottawa-East EMC - Thursday, May 24, 2012

R0011413006-0524

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Booze-fuelled student antics are making Sandy Hill a nightmare neighbourhood, a city committee heard on May 17. Almost a dozen Sandy Hill residents came out in support of changes to the way the city’s noise bylaw is enforced, but many said there needs to be even more attention to fix the “free-for-all party destination” reputation Sandy Hill is gaining. Christopher Collmorgen, president of Action Sandy Hill, said 20 per cent of the total noise complaints in Ottawa come from Sandy Hill. Resident May Morpaw said the widespread tolerance of open drinking in the streets of Sandy Hill is leading to increasingly frequent and intense parties, including a neighbourhood-wide St. Patrick’s Day bash that left the neighbourhood in shambles and included noisy revellers throwing glass bottles off rooftops. Carl Martin, who also lives in the neighbourhood, said even longtime Sandy Hill residents had never seen any-

thing like it. Another resident, Leanne Moussa, said she has called bylaw services only to be told, “What do you expect, living in Sandy Hill?” Camille Lachausseur, a Sandy Hill mother, said her children’s health and ability to learn are being affected by the constant nighttime partying. “I don’t want them to grow up thinking that this is normal behaviour,” she said. Lachausseur said there is a “double standard” for young people. “Why is there a double standard for young people … if I walked down the street like this, I would be given a ticket,” she said. Lachausseur worried about Sandy Hill becoming “the next London or Kingston,” referring to university cities that have recently experienced alcoholic-fuelled vandalism. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans countered that noisy student parties aren’t just a downtown problem. “The O-Train has transitioned our neighbourhood,” she said. “It started downtown and it’s primarily downtown, but it’s moving out.” The bylaw changes will allow enforcement officers to issue fines to tenants, not just their noisy guests. Bylaw officers will also be able to carry batons after receiving new training. There will also be a pilot project beginning this year that will see a small

group of bylaw enforcement officers assigned to work until 3:30 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays until September. Previously, bylaw services shifted responsibility for the issue over to the police after 2 a.m. – when many intoxicated patrons are heading home from bars. The late-night pilot project will be reviewed to see if that strategy should continue beyond 2012. Most of the comments the city received were in support of the changes, but some said the amendments don’t go far enough. They wanted the city to fine landlords if their tenants are noisy. Linda Anderson, the city’s bylaw chief, said it would be unfair to fine landlords who don’t live at the property because they don’t have the legal tools to evict noisy tenants. Tenants can be evicted if they disturb others in the building, but the tenant board could give them more chances. John Dickie, head of the Eastern Ontario Landlords Association, spoke in support of the changes, but said there wouldn’t be much point in laying bylaw charges on landlords, if the city tried to expand the rules in the future. “Our members want these problems to be solved,” Dickie said, adding, “we don’t have a magic wand we can wave to solve this problem.” Council will still have to vote on the noise bylaw changes.

The downside of Attachment parenting Attachment parenting has become a dirty word these days. But should it be? Most parents probably practice some form of this parenting philosophy, which includes responding to a babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cries, holding your baby without fear of coddling and practicing positive discipline. Why all the controversy? For one thing, a recent Time magazine cover, showing a women breastfeeding her three-year-old, has exposed some of the deeper elements of a parenting philosophy that also recommends extended breastfeeding, baby-wearing and bed-sharing. The cover, released on the heels of a new book by French feminist Elisabeth Badinter, seems to support Badinterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central argument that modern women feel pressured into practicing traditional mothering practices that tie them to the home, at the expense of their careers and the development of their identities outside of all-consuming mother-

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse hood. Sounds pretty controversial. But how much truth lies behind the controversy? To give credit where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due, Dr. William Sears, one of North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predominant experts on attachment parenting, does not recommend his parenting tools to be used as a Bible. In The Attachment Parenting Book, Sears writes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;attachment parenting is an approach to raising children rather than a strict set of rules.â&#x20AC;? The overarching goal of the tools, writes Sears, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;opening your mind and heart to the individual needs of your baby and letting your knowledge of your child be your guide to making on-the-spot decisions about what works

best for both of you.â&#x20AC;? It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound so bad, right? In fact, Sears sounds a lot like the â&#x20AC;&#x153;gentle spirit,â&#x20AC;? described by 26-year-old Jamie Lynne Grumet, the mother pictured on the cover of Time. Where Sears starts to get controversial is in his presentation of questionable science. Despite acknowledging that attachment parenting tools such as baby-wearing and bed-sharing may not be the best thing for all parents all of the time, Sears takes every opportunity throughout his book to point out the supposed beneďŹ ts of these tools, much of them presented in the negative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Infant animals separated from their mothers showed imbalances in the

autonomic nervous system ... had an abnormal heartbeat, and showed disturbances in sleep patterns,â&#x20AC;? he writes. He concludes that separation from mothers causes chronic stress, and increases the likelihood that children will be withdrawn, depressed and experience abnormal heart growth. Although these supposed â&#x20AC;&#x153;scientiďŹ câ&#x20AC;? facts are actually quite sketchy, they serve to induce fear and guilt to those who are unable or unwilling to religiously practice every element of attachment parenting all the time. But, you may think, so what? We live in a free society. We can practice whatever form of parenting we want. And yet, how much of the institutionalized information available to ďŹ rst-time parents presents a balanced approach to styles and choices? A quick glance at the websites of many pre-natal classes offered in Ottawa shows that even our local institutions are perpetuating the myths of all-or-nothing attachment

parenting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing to provide links to breastfeeding supports. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another thing entirely to link to sites that condemn bottle-feeding and offer courses called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the beneďŹ ts of baby-wearing and co-sleeping,â&#x20AC;? without also offering up alternative methods, such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;stroller-sizing and sleep-training.â&#x20AC;? Further exacerbating the situation for nervous, ďŹ rsttime parents is that many international institutions, such as the World Health Organization, are now recommending women breastfeed children until two years of age. Underlying these policies is an attempt to protect women in developing countries, where lack of access to clean water and an abundant supply of food make extended breastfeeding the safest option. Although this guideline is largely irrelevant in the developed world, where men and women have access to good nutrition, along with lifestyles that require them to work and live independently, it offers

another institutionalized opportunity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as Badinter argues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to pressure mothers back into the domestic sphere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t people wear their babies and breastfeed two-year-olds?â&#x20AC;? commented one friend on Facebook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in the developing world long enough to see that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most natural way to be a mother. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the West that has disrupted the process.â&#x20AC;? Last time I checked, maternal and child health records in many developing countries were appalling. Besides, none of us live in mud huts, nor in villages with other women to support us in the task of raising our children. We have education that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to use and the majority of us have a need and desire to balance motherhood with other desires and responsibilities. So perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take Sears and the whole attachment parenting thing at face value, scrap the sketchy science and fear-mongering, and just do what feels best for us and our kids.

A fitting memorial for our lost sons and daughters

T

he taboo against talking about youth suicide is starting to break. After much debate the Old Ottawa East Community Association has agreed to create a memorial recongnizing mental health issues, in memory of 18-year-old Nadia Kajouji, the Carleton University student who took her own life in April of 2008. The community association agreed to replace a makeshift memorial, created by Nadia’s family, with something more

permanent to offer support to others who struggle with mental health issues that may lead to suicide. The idea sparked much debate among members of the community association. Some worried the site would attract or even encourage suicidal people. Unfortunately out of sight does not necessarily mean out of mind. In the past, far too many of us have remained fearfully quiet in the wake of the death of one of our sons or daughters.

Fears that took many forms, but boiled down to the same argument: if we talk about youth suicide it only serves to encourage others. The cracks in this tired and old argument started to show following the deaths of teens Daron Richardson, 14, in 2010 and Jamie Hubley, 15, in 2011. The parents of Daron and Jamie talked openly about their children’s struggle with mental health issues, a problem that resonated with people across Canada. More important, it sparked

discussion about what has become a national epidemic. One in five children suffer a mental health problem — but only a third of those get the help they need, according to the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa. Every one of us either know or have come into contact with a child who has mental health issues. This discussion has encouraged positive change. It has sparked fundraisers and events raising awareness about youth mental health is-

sues across Ottawa this summer, including the city’s Dragon Boat festival in June. The Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa has used money from recent fundraisers and donations to hire four new youth and family counsellors serving at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre and schools among Ottawa’s four English and French school boards. On a national level, a private member’s bill has proposed creating a national suicide prevention strategy.

Canada is the only G8 nation without a national suicide prevention strategy. This is an example how healthy discussion about a national problem can translate into a prescriptive policy change. These positive changes have become organic memorials to the memories of Nadia, Daron, Jamie — for all our sons and daughters who lost their lives battling mental health issues. A memorial more fitting than any statue or bench we could erect in their memory.

Rejoicing in little yellow flowers CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

L

ittle kids understand dandelions. Look at the pretty flower, they say. Look, Mommy, I picked a pretty flower for you. Grownups with lawns don’t understand dandelions. They have lost the ability to appreciate a pretty yellow flower and they want green grass instead. Grownups don’t understand how to get rid of dandelions, except by using chemicals which are outlawed in most places. So dandelions thrive, which is great for children and not so great for grownups with lawns. Women understand dandelion strategy. They let it be known that there’s a device that picks dandelions without the picker having to stoop. Men love devices and bring one home. Women say they can’t understand how the device works. Men, showing off, say, here, let me do it. Next thing you know, men are using the dandelion device. But the experts, and there are millions of them, take a dim long-run view of the dandelion device and all other cures. They say that no strategy outside of paving the lawn works against dandelions. So here’s a radical idea. Maybe we should just come to terms with them. Let dandelions be dandelions. Rejoice in yellow flowers all over the lawn. Ancient civilizations survived without green lawns and so can we. We just have to get used to it. Croquet will be a problem, for example. Golf courses might disappear, which is too bad, although it would save millions of dollars in green fees and new

wedges. True, the issue of mowing the lawn will suddenly become complicated. For a time it will seem nicer: no pushing the lawnmower around. But then things other than dandelions will pop up and we might want to cut them, but we can’t do so without cutting the dandelions. The risk then is that the dandelions will become overwhelmed by, among other things, grass. Another problem is that dandelion season does not last forever. Modern man being what he is, he will undoubtedly attempt to extend the dandelion season, by artificial means if necessary. There will be new dandelion-stimulating chemicals, demands to ban them and that that old battle beginning again. No one said that dandelions would be a bed of roses. But don’t forget the positives, one of them being the glory of all that yellow, the other being not having to pick all that yellow. Traditionalists will take a dim view of the new pro-dandelion approach. They will do irrational things, such as writing letters to the editor and running for city council. But there are reasons for even them to be encouraged. Because it is always possible that when we want dandelions to grow, they won’t. This follows an age-old principle of gardening, which can be stated as follows: the harder you try to make a particular plant grow, the greater the likelihood of an entirely different plant growing in its place. In other words, it is possible that the best way to get rid of dandelions is by trying to grow them. Dandelions are like that. They know when they are not wanted. They take pride in popping up the morning after the proud male has picked the lawn clean with the dandelion device. Who is to say that they will not do the reverse — a disappearing act at a precisely the moment when we want them to appear? If that theory holds true, we are faced with the grim possibility that the lawn is here to stay, and that will have to mow it again.

New police chief officially welcomed Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - New Police Chief Charles Bordeleau got the pomp and circumstance of his official change of command ceremony at the Shenkman Arts Centre on May 14. The ceremony was held later than usual, partially because of the availability of Senator Vern White. Organizers also wanted to hold the event during police week to celebrate policing, Bordeleau said. He had already had his official swearing in ceremony on

March 5, but received the formal Tipp Staff at the changeof-command. The Tipp Staff is a replica of the original, presented in 1863 to the first police chief, Robert Ross. Several former police chiefs were in attendance. The ceremony also included an official presentation of the Ottawa Police Service colours. “It’s an honour for me to lead this police staff now into the future,” Bordeleau said. “Every day to wake up and to be the chief of police for the

nation’s capital is such a huge honour.” The formal inspection by the new chief included officers, civilians, volunteers and auxiliary officers. He said his priorities are guns and gangs, domestic violence and traffic enforcement. He indicated he also wants to encourage officers to continue work in schools educating students and parents about gang activity recognition. Bordeleau flagged the contiued creativity by officers conducting traffic enforcement, such

as those who recently posed as homeless people to catch distracted drivers. “The chief of police is one of the most important jobs in the city,” said Mayor Jim Watson, who was joined by Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. Sen. White offered a formal address, reflecting briefly on his 31 years of service where he worked in 16 communities. “I wish Chuck all of the luck he’ll need some nights,” Sen. White said. “I think he’ll do a tremendous job.”

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF

Mom, can we go to another one?

File

The Old Ottawa East Community Association voted to support a financial contribution to erect a memorial acknowledging mental health issues at the Rideau River site where Nadia Kajouji’s body was found in 2008.

A space for reflection proposed From COMMUNITY, page 1

Resident Heather Jarrett was also opposed to the idea of a suicide or mentalhealth memorial and said that neighbours have told her “it feels like the flavour of the month.” Instead, Jarrett said she would prefer a rest and contemplation space that is “life affirming.” In the end, the community association’s board did settle on supporting a rest and contemplative area, but one that recognizes mental health issues. The financial contribution was approved in a 5-4 vote on May 7. Jarrett also expressed worry that the spot could become a space sought out by people intent on “copy-cat” suicides. Community association president John Dance said the police department in Aberdeen,

Wash. said there have been no suicides at a high-profile memorial to rocker Kurt Cobain, who took his own life. The details of the permanent memorial haven’t been ironed out, but it could take the form of a seating boulder with a plaque or a memorial bench, which could cost between $2,500 and $5,000. The community association would contribute part of the cost. The spot is currently marked by a more makeshift memorial bench with items set up by Kajouji’s family. Kajouji’s mother, Deborah Chevalier, didn’t respond to requests for comment before this paper’s deadline. Old Ottawa East resident Claire McMenemy initially proposed the permanent memorial, but her family will be moving away from Ottawa soon, so she passed the project over to Pacella.

Brantwood Park after-school program seeks input Huge interest pushes new programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s launch forward by a year Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC community - The Old Ottawa East Community Activities Group is looking at starting a new after school program for this upcoming school year, an entire year earlier than initially planned due to greater-than-anticipated interest from families in the community. The not-for-profit organization works in partnership with the city to bring various programs to residents in Old Ottawa East. Since the opening of the refurbished field house in Brantwood Park, the group has offered a number of programs in there, including art programs, bridge programs and pre-school activities. Claire Farid, chairwoman of the group, said an after school program has always been amongst the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priorities, but 2013 had been

the start-up of the program ahead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now we are looking at what the age range would be, the schools we would draw from, you know, all the practical issues,â&#x20AC;? Farid said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are still in the exploratory stage, looking at whether it is feasible. But whatever we do, we are tying to make sure it has the same standard of high quality programming as our other programs.â&#x20AC;? The group has determined one thing; it would a small program which would accommodate 16 children from the area. Farid, who has children of her own, understands the importance of both having a program and letting parents know early if it will be a possibility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My children are passed that stage, so unfortunately for me it is not going to work out, but I think it is really important, the kids go to a lot of different schools, and I think it is one way that kids can get to know one another,â&#x20AC;? Farid said. The group has asked interested parents in the community to send in their feedback, either through email at info@ ottawaeastcag.ca or by calling 613-230-0076. The group is looking at making decision by June so parents are urged to send in their comments as soon as possible.

A number of residents came out to celebrate and sign up to be street captains.

Developer commits to helping Vanier’s parks michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news – After hearing loud and clear parks are a number one priority in Vanier, Domicile has committed to donating money to help revamp Optimiste Park. Domicile Developments Inc. has proposed a building at the site of an existing Esso gas station at 222 Beechwood Ave. that would feature fourstoreys along Beechwood, but with a 10-storey setback The Vanier Community Association saw the proposal as an opportunity to beautify their neighbourhood and requested the developer help fund the revitalization of Optimiste Park. After much discussion following Domicile’s first publicly presentation about the building on March 19, Domicile president John Doran said putting money back in the park is a win-win for both them and Vanier. “They weren’t pushy, they were straightforward,” Doran said. “We are coming into a neighbourhood and they have a need and know we would

benefit from it too.” The amount is around $50,000 – but Doran said it depends on whether they receive approval to build and sell enough units. The condominiums went on sale on May 16. “It is so early in the game, we need to succeed in selling the units, we need to succeed in the zoning, but when someone comes to us and asks a question, it is important we make that decision now,” Doran said. “And enhancing a park that will be at your doorstep, makes sense.” Vice-president of the Vanier Community Association, Elaine Léger said they are happy with the news and understand it is conditional on the building being developed. “This is good news,” Léger said. “We are very happy they have shown a commitment to the community.” Optimiste Park is up for renewal by the city in 2016. Any money Domicile would give would go towards that renewal project. For Léger this means huge potential. “My goal is to have all the

parks in Vanier to be back to the way they looked when it was the city of Vanier,” Léger said.

Ottawa Valley Tours

Doran said it is important as a developer to create ties to the neighbourhood they are proposing to develop in.

Members of the group work throughout the Vanier community (streets, parks, school yards, etc.) and keep an eye on all events and activities that take place. In an effort to bring safety and security to the community, members report all issues to 311 or www.serviceottawa.ca. It goes without saying that their dedication has brought great improvement to the community and that we are all very fortunate to have their commitment for our community.

The ongoing work of the Vanier Beautification group continues to be highlighted in our city; however, they are always looking for new volunteers and are always in need of help.

In collaboration with the Vanier Business Improvement Area (BIA), the Vanier Beautification group works to improve their community through programs like the City of Ottawa’s graffiti removal program. The group’s proactive community involvement style has inspired other organizations throughout the City to roll up their sleeves and do the same work. As their actions have demonstrated, the Vanier Beautification group adheres to a belief in a city and community that is clean, free of garbage, and a great place to call home. Most importantly, they help strengthen the image of the National Capital as a leader in community engagement.

Artist shares ‘impressions of impressionism’ in upcoming exhibit Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - Fortunée Shugar never led a typical life. She and her family were expelled from war-torn Egypt when she was just a little girl in 1956. She remembers living in a small motel room for almost three years with her family, and having no possessions “I think a lot of that shaped my way of seeing the world,” Shugar said from her Nepean home, where walls are covered with her art work. When she and her family moved to Montreal a few years later, she remembers how she started feeling alone as she had to learn English very quickly. “I think I always felt a little bit different than other people, because I came from a place so far away and so foreign to everyone,” Shugar said. While she doesn’t remember much of bombs falling and total blackouts that were commonplace in her native Egypt before she left, Shugar believes her vivid imagination stems from everything that’s built up inside of her because of that experience. That’s why through her art, the artist wants to create a feeling in those looking at her work and go beyond just the visual. “I don’t understand how it

The feelings that ran through her when she traveled to the gardens of Monet and the asylum where Van Gogh rested and painted are the inspiration for her latest solo exhibit, Impressions of Impressionism, being held at the Foyer Gallery May 30 to

June 17. “My intention was to bring out what was inside me when I was there and what I’ve been carrying ever since I was there,” Shugar said. “I was very, very moved.” Through impressionism, Shugar recreates what she saw when she visited these places in France and recreates her feelings of being there. When she arrived last sum-

mer to Monet’s gardens, she described how she felt she was in a “magical place.” Through her art, she hopes those who see it will be taken to a different place too. “It’s not about understanding it, it’s about feeling it,” Shugar said. “It’s a different way of looking, it’s not only looking with your eyes, it’s using a different part of your psyche, a different part of

you – if you just allow it to travel.” Shugar admits she used to be afraid of living the life of an artist and the uncertainty of work. But no matter what she was doing, she wanted to be creative – whether it was enrolling in an animation program at Algonquin College or designing clothes. “When you’re a creative

person, it doesn’t just come like that,” Shugar said. “It has to mellow and stew somewhere in your heart and soul until it’s ready to show itself. You can’t create on demand. It’s like a good stew – it needs to cook for a while, it needs to simmer, bubble up and eventually it all gels together.” She’s passionate about everything she does, including side jobs where she teaches art to developmentally delayed adults, children and holds cooking classes for children. “That love of something, it just bursts out of me,” Shugar said. “I don’t do it for any other reason other than it has to come out.” For those interested, Shugar also has work on display at the Michael Gennis Gallery, a new art gallery in Westboro. “I’m starting to branch out a little bit,” she said. Shugar will also be at the Foyer Gallery during her solo exhibit at select times for those who want to come in and meet her, including: • May 30, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. • June 3, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. • June 6, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. • June 16, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. • June 17, 2 pm.. to 5 p.m. • Or by appointment For more information on Shugar and her upcoming exhibit, visit her website at fortuneeshugar.com.

City council to discuss borough system before 2013 Mayor Jim Watson wants to reduce the number of city councillors and wards Staff

EMC news – Reducing the number of city wards and creating a borough system will likely be on city council’s agenda later this year. Addressing his one outstanding campaign promise during an online live chat hosted by Metroland reporter Laura Mueller on May 17, Watson said he would like to see the size of council reduced before the next municipal election in 2014. “For our city, compared to almost every other Canadian city, we have a higher number of elected officials. I would like to see tat [sic] reduced in time for the next election,” Watson wrote in the live chat that appears monthly on his website, jimwatsonottawa.ca. “I made a commitment to bring forward this term of council, and I hope to do that before the end of this year to seek public and council input,” he added. Watson proposed the borough system in August of 2010 during the municipal

election campaign, saying it could help reduce the disconnect some Ottawans still feel more than a decade after amalgamation. While Watson has said he doesn’t think amalgamation was a bad idea, the process hasn’t been without challenges. In 2010, he suggested reducing the number of councillors – and wards – from 23 to between 14 and 17. To boost representation, that was suggested to be supplemented by four boroughs with members that could have full jurisdiction over local matters for their area of the city. The idea would save money, Watson said during the election, and bring Ottawa’s elected representation in line with other cities. The issue will form part of the work of the governance renewal subcommittee, which so far has looked at a lobbyist registry for the city. A look into the number and structure of the city’s citizen advisory committees is also underway.

MAYOR SUGGESTS MUSEUM MOVE

Also during the May 17 chat, Watson suggested LeBreton Flats might be a good location for a new science and technology museum. The current Canada Science and Technology Museum on St. Laurent Boulevard was already in the news last week for raising the age of admission without parents for a sexuality exhibit geared towards teens. Watson was responding to a question about rumours of a new casino coming to LeBreton Flats following the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s call for proposals for a new gambling facility in Ottawa. During the chat, Watson said LeBreton Flats is an unlikely candidate for a casino because the land is owned by the National Capital Commission, which already has plans to build housing there. But there is also a plan to include a “nationally significant building” at LeBreton Flats, and Watson suggested that a revitalized science and technology museum would be at the top of his list. “I personally would love to see a new science and technology museum move from a former bread factory on St. Laurent to a new site

to our city.” Canada’s capital is the best spot for such a national museum, and the large high-tech sector in Ot-

tawa could help shoulder some of the costs to build the new museum, Watson said.

Seniors on Site (SOS) is a local Ottawa company with an innovative approach to caring for elderly individuals. It was founded on the belief that younger seniors can fulfill a growing need to assist older seniors to do the things that they no longer find easy to do or have time to do. Seniors on Site services are offered by experienced and qualified caregivers 50+ who bring a wealth of experience into every home they enter, as well as ensuring respectful working relationships that see every situation handled with trust and care. If you are a senior and need assistance, either in your own home or in a retirement or nursing home, with such activities as light housekeeping, meal preparation, running errands, transportation to appointments or simply wish to have a friendly visit, our Seniors on Site caregivers can provide a helping hand. We also offer a variety of home maintenance services including gardening, lawn work and minor repairs. If you are caring for a loved one who is showing signs of dementia, or if you simply need some respite from providing care, Seniors on Site caregivers can visit with your family member to give you some relief. Recognizing, however, that it’s not always sufficient to have a friendly visit with an elderly person with dementia but that it’s also important to engage in stimulating and enjoyable activities, Seniors on Site offers a unique program which provides cognitive interaction to help offset the effects of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or other cognitive impairments. A growing body of recent scientific research suggests cognitive training or stimulation may play a significant role in slowing down the progress of these diseases, thereby maximizing an individual’s ability to function, for an extended period of time. Seniors on Site’s unique dementia care program uses the comprehensive cognitive interaction program created by Fit Minds, a local Ottawa company. The program covers physical activities, language and music, visual/spatial, memory, critical thinking and computation exercises to engage the cognitive abilities of individuals suffering from dementia in fun and meaningful ways.

Dolls always received royal treatment

T

o me, my dolls were real little people. Babies, really. I loved every one of them and made awfully sure I treated each of them equally. All in like favour, as was the saying back then. There weren’t two alike. I had about six, all precious to me. They were all shapes and sizes, with some I could cuddle, as if they were real babies and had to be handled with special care. Although I tried not to show it, one of my most precious dolls was one I got as a surprise one Christmas. I had longed for it after seeing it in the Five and Dime Store in Renfrew, sure I would never have it. But there it was under the tree on that wonderful day back in the 1930s, when there was little money for such frivolity. One of my dolls was not one you could cuddle. First of all, I was frightened she might break. You see, her arms, legs and face were made of china. Aunt Lizzie had brought it all the way from Regina one year, not taking a chance on sending it in the hand-me-down box that came regularly filled with cast-offs her sons could no longer wear. This one came with a name already on a little tag

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories pinned to her lacy dress. It wasn’t a name I would have ever picked for such a beautiful doll. She was named Claire, but I thought she was much more suited to be called Margaret. Of course, my love for Princess

Other than the china doll and the one I got as a Christmas surprise, there was nothing exceptional about my other dolls. One or two had the paint almost worn off their faces before I learned you couldn’t wash them with

Often a miracle happened over the night. While I was asleep in my bed upstairs, I wouldn’t hear it, but when I got up in the morning, I would see that there had been a stirring during the night.

Margaret Rose had a lot to do with my choice. I could spend hours playing with my dolls. I dressed and undressed them, sat them in the swing, making it into a pretend school room and took on the persona of Miss Crosby, our teacher at the Northcote School. Of course, I was never as strict as was Miss Crosby.

soap and water. But I loved them just as dearly as the others. I went through a real ritual before I went to bed at night. Father, one Christmas, had made me a doll crib. Pale blue. It was big enough to hold most of my dolls, except the china one because I couldn’t take a chance on her being broken through

the night from the thrashing about of one of her crib mates. Yes, I was sure, they breathed, turned in the crib and like me and my sister, pushed and shoved to get a share of the bed. So this doll slept on a little padded quilt Mother made. It was on the floor beside the crib and well away from the path of anyone who might be making a trip through the kitchen during the night. At bedtime, before I climbed the stairs to the big hall which served as a bedroom for Audrey and me, I gathered my dolls around me and crouched on the floor beside the little blue crib. I sang a song to the dolls. Then, just like Mother did before we climbed into our beds upstairs, I closed my eyes and said a soft prayer under my breath that they would be safe during the night. I placed them on the flannelette mattress Mother had made, which matched the nightgown I myself wore to bed. I made sure they were on their backs, the china doll on the mat at the foot of the crib and then I covered them gently with the little blanket Mother had also made out a flannelette remnant. And then I checked each doll to

make sure it was in what I thought was a comfortable position. Only then was I ready for bed. Often a miracle happened over the night. While I was asleep in my bed upstairs, I wouldn’t hear it, but when I got up in the morning, I would see that there had been a stirring during the night. I would remember exactly how I had placed the dolls in the little blue crib. But they would have moved. One or two would have changed places. Wasn’t Sally at the foot of the crib the night before? And now she was cuddled at the head, with her face turned to the kitchen wall. I would marvel at the miracle before my eyes. My dolls really were babies after all. Hadn’t this just proved it? It would be many years before I could come close to explaining the miracle that I saw some mornings in the kitchen of that old log house. Was it a real miracle? Was it fantasy? Or was it my beloved sister Audrey, who was always out of bed long before me in the morning, who moved the dolls around so that her little sister would cling to a childhood dream for just a few years longer?

Hwy 174 on summer repair list Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Summer is often referred to as construction season, and it will be no different in Orleans. Hwy 174 is set to undergo fixes on 200 joints, and full resurfacing between the split and Montreal Road. Work is scheduled for evenings and weekends; lane closures are planned for 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weekdays, and 9 p.m. to 10 a.m. on weekends. The construction period is planned for July until late November. An inquiry was filed last summer at city hall regarding the status of the highway. It was said the area is a challenge because of the way the road was constructed. Quoting a response to his inquiry, Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais said “the two interior lanes in both directions run over a concrete base. This base has moved at many of the joints and has resulted in an uneven riding surface. These breaks, if left untreated, will result in accelerated deterioration and could pose safety risks.” The project is being funded as part of the Ottawa on the Move capital works program.

Boot camp organizers aiming for world record Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Making lifechanging ďŹ tness choices and setting a new record will be the theme of the day when hundreds of gather on Parliament Hill on June 9 for the Great Canadian Boot Camp. Katherine Robitaille, an Ottawa ďŹ tness trainer, is helping to organize the event with Paul Plakas, the star of Canadian ďŹ tness shows X-Weighted and Taking It Off, who will be in town holding a seminar called Lean, Fit and Pain Free in the 21st Century. Following the seminar, the pair will lead the Great Canadian Boot Camp and are hoping to draw more than 317 people in order to break the Guinness World Record for largest boot camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be great knowing that you contributed to breaking that record?â&#x20AC;? Robitaille said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ottawa is a very ďŹ t, outdoorsy city and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great moment for us to shine in front of no better backdrop than our Parliament Hill.â&#x20AC;? The event promises to push people, but in a good way. The sequences of exercises in a boot camp are timed rather than given a set of reps, so that one person who is very ďŹ t can train next to someone who is just beginning, as Robitaille explains, everyone uses the

Robitaille said. The boot camp is open to the public and is a free event. The seminar costs of $99 per ticket, but the fee is to

cover the cost of the venue and Plakasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ďŹ&#x201A;ight. Plakas will be donating any proďŹ ts from the seminar to charity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at what we spend every day on coffee, take-out lunches, even gym memberships that we seldom use, this seminar is not expensive in terms of value,â&#x20AC;? Robitaille said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to offer it all for free, but our room

at the Chateau Laurier isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t free, nor is Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ&#x201A;ight from Alberta free either. In fact if any proďŹ ts are made at all, Fitness Anywhere will promise to donate them to a local charity.â&#x20AC;? The boot camp event is free, however â&#x20AC;&#x201C; events at Parliament Hill are restricted from charging fees â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the setting for the challenge was

important, Robitaille said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really want to have The Great Canadian Boot Camp there as this setting is perfect,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So instead of having the boot camp in our room at the Chateau and limiting the capacity, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving it there in the hopes that it will make this a great Canadian event.â&#x20AC;? Stacey Carter, from Hali-

fax, held a similar event in her hometown. She is contacted Robitaille to see if this was something Ottawa would be interested in and is lending her assistance to the Parliament Hill event. For Carter, who has lost more than 45 kilograms since she started her own weight loss journey, boot camps are more than just a workout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was overweight all my life and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really see it as a big deal,â&#x20AC;? Carter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I decided to start losing weight I was really lost about what to do. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how lost until I attended Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Plakas) boot camp ... I am happy to say that because of the boot camps I have attended and the things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned from Paul, I have been successful reaching my weight loss goal, kept my weight off and am now living an extremely active, exciting life, doing things I never would have thought possible.â&#x20AC;? Carter will be at the seminar next month and said she is looking forward to it as much as her very ďŹ rst one. Tickets for the seminar can be purchased online at www. ďŹ t-anywhere.com. The boot camp will go on rain or shine. In the instance there is severe weather, the camp will be held indoors at the Chateau Laurier.

Quick, easy breakfast cinnamon buns

Cycling or walking best way to Brewer market Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Only weeks after taking up residency at Brewer Park, organizers of the Ottawa Farmers’ Market are finding the biggest headache is the lack of parking at the new location. The market opened at Brewer Park on May 6 after moving the original location at Lansdowne Park. Market manager Linda Cook has been watching closely to ensure all shoppers enjoy their visit to the new location, including keeping a close eye on parking issues. “It is only the first few weeks and there have been some parking issues, but (customers) are getting it,” Cook said. “It is not too bad in the morning (but) Brewer Park is a busy park. It is only going to get more congestion as the day goes on.” The market is working with Carleton University to provide free parking passes and Cook is encouraging shoppers to take advantage. “The best thing is to download the parking pass, print it out and put it in windshield and go straight to Carleton,” Cook said. Close to the canal and Bank Street, biking, walking and public transportation all remain viable options, she said. Residents in Old Ottawa South have been quick to

The Ottawa Farmers’ Market moved from Lansdowne Park to Old Ottawa South’s Brewer Park on May 6. The move leaves little on site parking and organizers are encouraging shoppers to take advantage of the free parking at Carleton University. warm to the new Sunday market in their neighbourhood. “It has been fabulous, they have been pouring in from Old Ottawa South,” Cook said. Captial Coun. David Chernushenko, who is an Old Ottawa South resident himself, said it has been delightful to have the market so close by, but acknowledged he has heard about the parking concerns, too. “Well as a resident, it is nice to walk out the door,” Chernushenko said. “And I have heard a lot of positive comments, but it hasn’t come with out challenges and I hear that as a councillor and as a neighbour.” Chernushenko’s own home is further away from the immediate traffic concerns, but he has heard from a number of people about the traffic. “Now my challenge is to get as few people to come out with their cars, to try and get as many people to leave the car at home,” he added.

An avid cyclist, Chernushenko said there are excellent cycling routes for people to take and if people do need to drive to go straight to Carleton. “The designated spot is at Carleton University, spare everybody, including yourself any trouble and go straight there,” Chernushenko said. All in all, Chernushenko is happy the market remained close to Lansdowne Park. “Markets are gathering places, you see neighbours and get time to talk to each other and there aren’t enough of those,” Chernushenko said. There are a number of upcoming events at the market, including a sample tent. Cook was happy to announce Sparky and Winston, two Clydesdale horses, are back pulling a wagon through streets of Old Ottawa South. The market is open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the parking pass can be obtained by going to ottawafarmersmarket.ca.

EMC food - Fresh cinnamon buns, homemade and served warm from the oven for breakfast, are one of the better things in life. In this recipe, the food processor does all the mixing and kneading. Once you try it and discover just how quick and easy it is, you’ll be ready to make cinnamon buns again and again. To make morning preparation even easier, do some of the prep the night before. You can measure the dry ingredients, prepare the cinnamon-brown sugar filling and even butter the baking pan ahead of time.

Dough • two cups flour • one tbsp. baking powder • 1/4 tsp. baking soda • 1/2 tsp. salt • 1/4 cup vegetable oil • one cup buttermilk Filling • 1/4 - 1/3 cup softened butter (not margarine) • 1/2 cup brown sugar • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon Measure the dry ingredi-

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff ents for the dough into the food processor. Cover, and pulse for about six seconds to mix them. Your food processor should have a removable insert in the lid for pouring liquids. Take out the insert and with the motor running, pour the oil and buttermilk through the opening into the dry ingredients. Continue processing until the dough forms a ball. This takes about one minute. Turn the dough out on a lightly-floured surface, and shape it into a ball. With a rolling pin, roll the dough out to make a rectangle 38 centimetres long and 25 centimetres wide. The long side should be facing you. For the filling, spread the softened butter over the dough, then sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up the rectangle

tightly, starting from the long side closest to you. Pinch the seam to seal. With a sharp knife, cut the roll in half, then mark each half into five portions of equal width. Cut through the roll where you’ve marked it. Marking the dough first, then cutting it, will help you in making slices that are even in width. Arrange the slices, cut side up, in a greased round 22 centimetre (nine-inch) cake pan. Place eight slices around the edge of the pan and two in the middle. This gives them room to expand as they bake. Bake at 400 F (200 C) for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven, and set the pan on a cake rack. Cool for about five minutes in the pan before serving. Makes 10 buns.

Futuroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boys team collecting cleats Ottawa squad named team of the week Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC sports - The Ottawa Royals Futuro under-10 boys soccer team has undertaken an ambitious campaign to collect 1,000 pairs of soccer cleats to send to underprivileged children in India. The campaign, Cleats 4 Kids, was started by Futuro coach Sanjeev Parmar and is aiming to gather as many cleats as they can by June 30. The campaign was given country-wide attention when the team was named the Bank of Montreal team of the week as part of a nationwide campaign to promote youth soccer. The Futuro team was recognized for its achievements on and off the ďŹ eld on May 9. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This team is based on a program that goes beyond soccer,â&#x20AC;? said Parmar in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As coaches, our goal is to provide each player with the ability to reach his potential.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not on the ďŹ eld, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re building as a team or reaching out to the community. Being recognized as BMO Team of the Week is truly an honour and a testament to the fact that we have something special.â&#x20AC;? Being named a team of the week offers the Futuroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance at winning a $125,000 ďŹ eld refurbishment. Pete Gauvin, the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager for the Ottawa metro region, said the level of community involvement displayed by both the players and coaches played a part in the team being honoured. The campaign, Gauvin explained, is about recognizing youth soccer teams that demonstrate team pride, spirit, community commitment and passion for the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at this team here, the way they are collecting the cleats, reaching out and giving back - it is all about team building,â&#x20AC;? Gauvin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not just about practicing which makes you good at the game; it is about team spirit which gives you that winning attitude. It is not about just winning the game.â&#x20AC;? Parmar travels once a year to India through his coaching company, Parmar Sports Training, to work with the lo-

The Ottawa Royals Futuro under-10 boys team is collecting cleats to send to underpriveldged children in India. Their effort has gained country-wide recognition when the team was named Bank of Montrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team of the week winner on May 9. cal coaches to divert troubled youth to playing soccer. Parmar has always brought pairs of cleats with him for the children. Working with his business

manager, Bobby Jaswal, they decided it was time to take on a larger donation project and started the non-proďŹ t organization Cleats 4 Kids with the goal of collecting 1,000 pairs of shoes. The team is also collecting any available soccer gear, including shoes that may need small repairs. They are also accepting monetary donations, Jaswal said. At a recent fundraiser in Stittsville, a local daycare donated $90, which is enough to purchase ďŹ ve new pairs of cleats at a discounted price. The team has already made an incredible effort.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids are pretty amazing, parents have been super helpful, but the children, they have been able to go to their principals, making announcements in their schools, and setting up boxes in their schools,â&#x20AC;? Jaswal said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just kind of mentioned the initiative to them (the team) and they took it on.â&#x20AC;? Families and soccer players alike can donate their used or new cleats at a drop box at DiSalvo Sports Soccer Store at 1408 Bank St. or at Louis Riel High School in Orleans. Jaswal also welcomes feedback on new locations for drop boxes.

The goal is to collect childsized cleats, but Jaswal said adult sizes are also appreciated. For more information on the cleat drive, please go to Cleats 4 Kids website at cleats4kidscanada.com. The BMO contest will name 15 weekly winners which will be entered for a chance to be voted by Canadians as BMO Team of the Week 2012 Champion. On top of winning a ďŹ eld refurbishment, the grand prize for the winning team includes a road trip to a Canadian professional soccer game and a $5,000 donation to the winning teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charity of choice.

New program connects the dots for high risk youth Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news – The Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa has introduced a new program aiming to help its most at risk clients. Youth in Transition, a program that started up in January and run jointly with the Canadian Mental Health Association, matches highrisk clients – youth ages 16 to 24 – with a case worker who can help them navigate the network of services available citywide. Often, getting access to the proper mental health services could take “several years and a three inch file” said Dan Sabourin, director of community and housing services at the bureau. Youth in the bureau’s street-involved programs with mental health issues have issues with housing, and many with addictions and legal troubles. Trying to deal with the appropriate agencies can quickly weave into a messy web of phone calls and wait lists, appointments and professionals. Not to mention that many of the youth in the program have never been formally diagnosed with a mental-health issue because they haven’t seen a family doctor in years.

Sabourin mentioned another who was able to finish high school and get their diploma with the help of the case worker. “We’re inspiring hopes and helping these young people develop into proper adults,” said Perrault.

ing their best to manage.” Many of the youth aren’t in a typical school system with guidance counselors or professionals to make the often-needed referrals to access help. That’s why the Youth in Transition program can be accessed through self-referral of youth coming to the drop-in clinic. A client coming to the centre for lunch, to use the computers, laundry facilities or other services would just have to wander a few feet to find a staff member who could help them refer themselves into the program. The transition from a youth under 18 to a legal adult can often wreak havoc on clients who are already in the system, which is why the program serves youth up to 24. Turning 18 can often start the waitlist process all over to gain access to appropriate services. “That year on the wait list can have huge impacts,” Sabourin said. While waiting, the case workers are staying up to date and making sure they still having counseling and accessing groups.

When the youth services bureau took a poll of the youth living in their shelters and housing, they found 45 per cent reported having been diagnosed, or showing symptoms of mental health problems. Eva’s Initiative, based out of Toronto, recently reported 54 per cent of those polled had mental health issues – and 84 per cent didn’t have the proper support available. With the Youth in Transition program, 20 Ottawa youth are now set up with a case worker who meets with them at least twice a week. With four workers who started in January, the program will be capped at about 45 clients. “I’m probably the first professional adult they’ve trusted,” said Sean Perrault, who is one of the four workers. “These are the most marginalized youth we see, and we’re able to break down those walls.” Perrault works to untangle the web of agencies and appropriate services and make sure that the youth are referred to the proper people, while also providing counseling. “They feel that they’re taken care of,” said Sabourin. “Before, we would have just dealt with crisis management. There was so much demand on the system; workers were just do-

‘Win in life,’ Olympic champion tells high school students Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Elizabeth Manley proudly displayed her silver medal for figure skating to hundreds of St. Pius X High School students in the school’s cafeteria on May 15. But the medal, won during the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, means more to her than a win for Canada – for her, it’s a win in life. “This is my medal for life. I was exactly where you are today. I chose the right path and you can too,” Manley told the crowd of high school students. Building on the school’s recent Mental Health Awareness Week, the school invited Manley along with former superintendent Mike Bain, now the chairman of the Youth Services Bureau. Bain had the entire cafeteria on their feet when he asked those to stand who have dealt with mental health issues before and introduced Manley, who told of her struggles with mental health issues. With brothers who all played hockey, Manley grew up on the ice and attended Woodroffe High School as a teenager. “School was very difficult time for me,” she said, adding her parents got divorced when she was in Grade 9 and her mother struggled to make

Olympic champion Elizabeth Manley spoke to St. Pius X High School on May 15 about her personal struggles with mental health. She showed students the silver medal she won at the 1988 Olympics held in Calgary, saying it symbolizes her win at life. ends meet. “We struggled and had no money and to keep me in (figure skating), we had to give up a lot,” Manley said. “I didn’t have a lot of clothes, no makeup, just so we could pay a skating bill.” She also said what a tough time she had making friends since her schedule consisted of practicing skating, training and going to school during the

morning. “I had no friends, no social life, no phones and computers. No connection to the real world,” Manley said. “I lived in a rink.” When Skate Canada called and said they were sending Manley to the United States, she packed up her life and headed to Lake Placid. There she lived in the attic of a boarding house, where

her depression continued. “I wanted to just disappear,” she said. “I unpacked and sat there the whole night and cried, and thought, what’s happening to me?” She told the crowd of teens how her new training coach would tell her she looked fat, and she stopped eating to try and lose weight. But Manley said she kept gaining weight and even start-

ed losing her hair. She knew something was wrong, and called her mom. “We found four bald spots in the back of my head the size of grapefruits,” Manley said. “We knew there was a problem.” She packed up, came back to Ottawa and after visiting numerous doctors she was diagnosed with clinical depression and a nervous break-

down – a diagnoses that was unimaginable at the time. “This was in the 1980s, where the term mental health you just didn’t bring up,” Manley said. “You didn’t want to hear the word.” When she began talking to a psychologist, she said she jumped at the chance to be helped. “I easily could’ve taken my life, or harmed myself, but I grasped the opportunity to get help,” Manley said. Even though she got help, Manley said she still faced critics in the weeks leading up to the Calgary Olympics and almost didn’t compete. But then, one day while she was practicing, the Canadian Olympic hockey team came to watch her skate, and didn’t say a word to each other. When she finished, the hockey coach approached her and said something that she couldn’t believe. “He said, ‘Our hockey team has their toughest game tonight and I needed my team to watch a real champion train,’ ” Manley said. “‘I needed them to be motivated by a real champion, so thank you for doing that.’ “We have a lot of hockey, football players, and some figure skaters here today,” she told the students. “Don’t let anybody ever tell you that you can’t do it. Win in life.”

This neutered male, tricolor Rottweiler and German Shepherd mix dog is approximately six years old. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on May 9, and is looking for a family who will take him for walks every day. Trips to the dog park would be great, too! Max has a friendly and polite way of meeting new people, and he will happily show you all of the commands that he has mastered. He gets along with other dogs and kids who are familiar with large dogs. He lived with cats in his previous home. Max needs an assertive and confident owner who will expose him to all sorts of new people and places, because Max can be a bit leery of new things. A crate would be a comfortable place for Max to feel at ease as he gets used to his new home.

This unaltered male, green and yellow Budgie is about a year old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray, and is one of two budgies currently available for adoption. Budgies are curious and playful birds that can form a strong bond with their owners. They do best in pairs or larger groups and like to feel like part of a flock. If you have room in your family for another flock member, contact the adoption centre to enquire about Echo! For more information about these or other ‘animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

TAKE YOUR DOG WITH YOU ON YOUR WEEKEND GETAWAY reaction, and you need to know the steps to take to appropriately deal with any situation that may arise. Make sure your dog is up-to-date on vaccinations because dogs can encounter unvaccinated animals while camping. Dog licenses should also be current, and microchip and identification tags must be up-to-date. A second set of tags with your cell phone number (or perhaps the number of the cottage or the campsite you will be staying) may be a good idea. Dogs can get stressed out when their routine changes. Too much stress can lead to erratic behavior, even illness. Getting your dog used to many scenarios in the weeks before your trip is easy and fun. Put up your tent in the back yard before you camp and let your dog get used to it. Bring your dog’s bed, and a tarp or plastic sheet to help keep it clean and dry – and to help keep your dog warm. Bringing the bed that a dog is most used to is as much behavioral support as comfort. Camping may mean an increase in physical activity for your dog, so make sure your dog has plenty of water. Even if your dog is well-behaved, you will need to keep him or her on a leash. It is unfair to other campers if your dog wanders into their campsite, and regardless of whether your dogs is friendly, he or she could run

into various scenarios and unfriendly people or animals. Make sure your dog’s leash, collar and buckle are in good condition and will not break if he or she suddenly lunges. Bring extras, just in case. Be sure to stoop and scoop! Your companion’s waste is not only a nuisance to other campers, but is bad for the environment, especially if you are near a water source. Bring a muzzle with you. Even if your dog is not aggressive and you never have to use it, it is a great safety precaution. If your dog is injured, his or her behaviour can and change and panic or fear may cause your dog to react differently than normal. The muzzle will prevent him or her from biting you or others trying to administer first aid. Don’t forget extra treats for your canine companion. It’s a treat for you to get away from it all, and you should try and make the experience extra special for your companion animal, too! You may not like certain types of bones or treats because of the mess they make in your home – but camping is a perfect outdoor place to offer these treats! Remember: your behavior with your dogs affects ALL campers with dogs! Keep your dog quiet, exhaust your dog with exercise, keep your dog on a leash at all times and never, ever leave your dog alone at a camp site.

It’s that time of year when weekend getaways are appealing, and summer vacation time is just around the corner. The OHS receives a higher number of dogs surrendered or abandoned as strays in the summer months because their owners cannot find care for them during their holidays. But why not pick a getaway that’s fun for the whole family, furry members and all? Camping with your canines can be a lot of fun, and a learning experience for everyone involved. Don’t forget, all these new smells and sites can be very exciting for a dog, and you have to be able to restrain your canine companion in the presence of distractions, such as deer, squirrels and other critters. If you are going to camp with a dog (or dogs), it is important that the dog is well-behaved around other people (both adults and children) and animals. Your dog will need to understand when play time is over and how to be quiet. You may want to consider taking the dog to basic training which will help both you and the dog in the new environment – it will make you a better, more responsive dog owner, and it will help you keep your canine companion comfortable in the new place. You know your dog better than anyone. You know what may provoke a defensive
