Old Ottawa South gives back Michelle Nash and Eddie Rwema michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - An Old Ottawa South family has been overwhelmed by the generosity of members of the community, after they were displaced following a fire that affected two houses on Hopewell Avenue. Ottawa Fire Services responded to a call on July 14 shortly before 8 p.m. after a tree caught fire in front of a house at 128 Hopewell Ave. The fire quickly spread to the house and the neighbouring residence at 126 Hopewell Ave. The fire left a single mother, her 11-year-old daughter and three university students homeless and caused an estimated $1 million in damage. Members of the community, along with the Ottawa South Community Centre, were quick to offer a helping hand to those affected by the blaze and are organizing different fundraising events to raise money for the victims. The centre’s Girls Fit ’n’ Fun Camp held a Hopewell Fire Fundraiser on July 19 at Windsor Park. Organizers sold hot dogs, pop and water with all proceeds going to the victims. “It is amazing and a little bit overwhelming,” Beth Gorham, one of the fire victims who lived on 128 Hopewell Ave., said of the community support. “It just goes to show you why people are so dedicated to the community and feel at home here in Old Ottawa South.” Gorham said the support has turned the tragedy that befell her and her daughter into something so positive the she says they will never forget.

Small cycling projects make a big impact: report Biking becoming more normalized in Ottawa, says new study Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa is posting big successes for cyclists, according to an advocacy group’s new report. For the first time ever, Ottawa group Citizens for Safe Cycling published a “state of cycling in the city report,”

and president Hans Moor said the analysis shows things are looking up. “We’re making big progress,” Moor said. “There is definitely a lot of attention at city hall, both (from) staff and from council, to see cycling as a serious alternative for taking the car. It’s becoming more of an

‘and-and’ than an ‘either-or.’” Ottawa has many kilometers of bicycle lanes and paths, but they are not necessarily connected to each other, Moor said. He supports Mayor Jim Watson’s assertion that the city can get “more bang for its buck” by undertaking small projects to better connect existing cycling facilities. “You don’t have to roll

out expensive new bike lanes through forests,” Moor said. “You just connect two pieces and all of a sudden people start to say, ‘Hey, I can actually do all this without sharing the lane with traffic.’” Last year, the small improvement that had the biggest impact was new markings.

is only entering its fifth year, we’re privileged to build on an already strong foundation - and further work to make Vanier the kind of community we all aspire for it to be.” The board will be working on this year’s priorities in the coming weeks, but two formal decisions were made at the July 9 meeting. In addition to the existing roles on the board of directors, two new positions have been created: membership officer and communications officer. Last year, the two roles were undertaken by one individual. This change, Bulthuis said, is to reflect the group’s interest in outreach and engagement and growing membership for a much more significant collective voice. “Vanier is a diverse community and we want to ensure that diverse voices are heard in community planning and events,” Bulthuis said. “Of course, we’ll continue with work underway, too.” The association has worked hard in the past year at renewing parks and public spaces, ensuring development and reinvestment benefits in the community is line with the community’s objectives. Most recently, they’ve advocated for safe cycling and pedestrian environments. Board member Rose Anne Leonard said Bulthuis will do a great job in the new position and is looking forward to working with him. With five new members on a board of 12, Bulthuis said he is looking forward to fresh ideas and support from the board in ensuring they remain relevant to today’s community. The board’s next meeting is scheduled for Sept. 11. All Vanier residents are invited to attend.

Mike Bulthuis, the new president of the Vanier Community Association, is looking forward to engaging residents and the community at large.

New president takes lead in Vanier Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The new president of the Vanier Community Association is looking forward to engaging his community and working to guide the rapidly changing area into the future. Mike Bulthuis joined the community association in 2011. Before coming on board, he worked with other residents to start up a community garden. Relatively new to the neighbourhood, he quickly became engaged in what the community was doing and

now as association president, Bulthuis is looking forward to the same sort of engagement. “As residents, each of our unique experiences shapes how we perceive our community,” Bulthuis said. “Here in Vanier, I’ve seen lots of examples of resident-led and organizational efforts towards improving our neighbourhoods – whether by the association, the community garden, neighbourhood watch, beautification, businesses or other groups. I hope to take this positive energy with me, helping to create ever more spaces for community interaction.”

A government worker by day and active community blogger by night, Bulthuis said he has the stamina to fight, ignite and work with his community. “In the few years I’ve lived here, I think the community’s strength has been impressed upon me in different ways,” Bulthuis said. “Like other urban neighbourhoods in Ottawa, Vanier is changing. I hope we’re able to retain a positive, progressive and inclusive sense of community in the years ahead.” In November 2011, Bulthuis

and photographer Mike Steinhauer began a communitybased blog about Vanier. Posting weekly, the two have created a fresh look at Vanier’s history and given their take on the future. Taking the summer off, Bulthuis and Steinhauer will start the blog up again in the fall. When it comes to representing his community, Bulthuis is excited about the job. “The new board met for the first time in early July and there was a real sense of optimism and energy,” Bulthuis said. “While the association

Gab ’n’ Graze brings Centretown residents together Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC community - Jordan Charbonneau said it can be difficult to get Centretown residents together for meetings over the summer. That’s why every summer, the Centretown Citizens Community Association president said the community holds its Gab ’n’ Graze events at an area restaurant where residents can chat about what’s happening in their neighbour-

hood. “Really it’s meant to be an informal opportunity for CCCA members, or just general Centretown members, to come out for an informal opportunity to talk and patronize a little local establishment,” said Charbonneau. “We hold them over the summer when it’s harder to get everyone together for a full board meeting.” Charbonneau said the tradition has been around since

before he was president of the community association, and that it offers a good chance for residents to raise issues that are affecting them. “If a non-member shows up and just has some concerns about buildings, a roadway by them or general issues to raise, it’s an opportunity to do it informally,” he said. The issue of development has been a major topic of conversation for a number of years, Charbonneau said,

with a lot of buildings and condominiums being built in the area. “Planning and development is the biggest (issue),” he said. While serious issues can be raised at the event, Charbonneau said the Gab ’n’ Graze presents an opportunity for neighbours to get to know each other. He hopes the events show that Centretown’s community association can also have fun.

“The big thing I hope (residents) realize is that we’re an organization that likes to have fun,” Charbonneau said. “We’re a social organization that’s focused on improving the community and our area.” The last Gab ’n’ Graze took place on July 17 and the next one will take place in August.

EMC news - Elections Ontario revealed on July 17 that it may have lost the personal information of voters in four Ottawa ridings. The information, including an elector’s name, address, birthdate and whether the person voted (but not who they voted for), of electors from between 20 and 25 electoral districts was on two encrypted USB drives that went missing. Elections Ontario isn’t sure exactly which ridings were affected, but has narrowed the list down to 49 districts, including Nepean-Carleton, Ottawa South, Ottawa West-Nepean and Ottawa Vanier. The breach could affect an “unprecedented” number of Canadians: 2.4 million people, according to Ontario’s information and privacy commissioner. “Elections Ontario has specific policies and processes in place regarding the management and care of personal information that were not followed,” chief electoral officer Greg Essensa said in the statement. “Therefore I cannot confirm the security of the information. For that reason, I am notifying Ontarians.” Essensa said there is no evidence the information has been improperly accessed. Still, Elections Ontario is recommending that voters in those ridings monitor and verify their transaction statements from governments, financial institutions and business to look for suspicious activity. Essensa said Elections Ontario is taking the security breach very seriously and has undertaken a rigorous search and an internal investigation. An external investigation by a forensic security specialist firm is also underway and the province’s information and privacy commissioner, Anne Cavoukian, is also investigating. The breach has also spurred a comprehensive review of all Elections Ontario privacy policies, as well as the agency’s technology framework, management and oversight.

Business as usual at NCC despite CEO’s departure Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - While it’s not an opportune time to find a new chief executive, Marie Lemay’s departure from the National Capital Commission will do little to interrupt or change the direction of the Crown corporation’s work, its board chairman said. “I don’t think we will be missing any beats in moving these things forward,” said NCC board chairman Russ Mills. After four years at the head of the federal agency that plans and manages Canada’s capital region, Lemay is leaving to take a senior federal public service appointment as associate deputy minister of infrastructure. Decisions on things like the NCC’s rejection of light rail on the Ottawa River Parkway won’t change, said Mills. “No. The CEO is the communicator,” Mills said. “Maybe people perceive that because of that, she is the decision maker, but actually the decision maker is the board. The board will be continuing in place.” Mills was set to meet with the relevant federal ministries this week to hammer out a plan and a timeline for seeking an interim and permanent replacement for Lemay. Last time around, the Crown corporation received

strong communications background and a willingness to engage the public in a discussion about what the NCC does, Mills said. As for her advice to her successor, Lemay said they should be prepared for a unique and interesting role. Continuing to “walk the talk” of transparency and openness will be paramount, she said. “That takes effort. That takes time. But it’s so, so important,” Lemay said. The NCC’s staff are passionate and live their mandate, which is an advantage, she said. “You need to have people that are willing to follow and deliver on this (transparency mandate),” Lemay said. LEGACY

60 applications for the role of chief executive before choosing Lemay, Mills said. “I think Marie Lemay did a great job as CEO of the NCC,” Mills said. “We need to continue on the path that we’ve been following for the last four years or so.” Lemay said it wasn’t an easy decision to leave because the NCC is a “fantastic” organization staffed by an “extraordinary group of people.” There is never a good time to leave, she said, and that’s especially true right now as the NCC embarks on several

integrated master planning exercises aimed at creating a new overall plan for the capital region called Horizon 2067. Celebrations for Canada’s sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, in 2017 are also getting underway. “We are deep into the planning cycle now,” Mills said, but he doesn’t anticipate Lemay’s departure will have a negative impact on those projects. FUTURE

Despite Lemay’s departure,

the NCC will continue towards completing its new Greenbelt Master Plan and other initiatives. Afterwards, Mills said he expects to see the NCC sell some parcels of land. “We will be able to review everything that we own and make some decision about which properties are essential to the NCC in fulfilling its mandate, and which are less essential,” Mills said. The revenues could be used to buy “things that are more important,” he added. A CEO who steps into the role at that time will need a

Lemay said her proudest achievement is leaving the NCC a more transparent and open organization than when she arrived in 2008. At that time, board meetings were not open to the public and the role of CEO and board chair was combined. The organization had just begun to embark on a transparency initiative. “That’s one of the reasons I took on this role – I wanted to champion that,” Lemay said. Improving the way the NCC communicates its

role to the public is another achievement, she added. That ties into her success in leveraging other partners in the public and privates sectors, Lemay said. Still, Lemay said, those efforts were fought against a challenge all NCC heads have faced and will continue to face: the complexity of the capital region and its many overlapping municipal, provincial and federal jurisdictions. “There is nothing we can really do alone. We have to work with partners,” she said. “It’s actually an opportunity because there is a lot of expertise and a lot of resources. If you can find a way to leverage that, the sky’s the limit … I think the partners are now all starting to see this.” Before coming to the NCC, Lemay was CEO of Engineers Canada for almost eight years after an earlier stint in municipal public service. She was born in Quebec City, but moved to the capital region when she was a child and was raised in Gatineau. She graduated from the University of Ottawa with a bachelor degree in engineering and continues to live in Chelsea, Que. Her new role will return her more closely to the practice of engineering she stepped away from at the NCC, she said.

Home healthcare workers were honoured for their never-ending commitment to helping individuals stay in their homes and remain a part of their community at the Champlain Community Care Access Centre 2011 Heroes in the Home Award in May 2011. More than 130 individuals were awarded for their passion, dedication and warm hearts. three award ceremonies in the region. This is the Champlain centre’s third year hosting the Heroes in the Home awards. In 2011, the Heroes in the Home banquet paid tribute to 134 home health care workers, thanking them for their tireless efforts to

care for individuals in need of support. The Champlain Community Care Access Centre is one of the largest health care service providers in the Champlain Local Health Integration Network. The Canadian Caregiver Coalition estimates that about

four million unpaid caregivers provide more than 80 per cent of care needed for those with living with chronic conditions, contributing to more than $5 billion worth of unpaid labour annually to the health care system. The aging population is expected to only increase demand for such caregivers.

Activities group director awarded for excellence Sandy Hill Community Health centre recognizes Carol Workun Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Inspired by the work of a community leader, the Sandy Hill Community Health Centre has honoured Carol Workun for her work promoting health and wellness. Workun has been involved with the Community Activities Group for more than a decade. For the past five years, the Old Ottawa East resident has acted as the group’s executive director. This summer, Workun was recognized by the Sandy Hill centre for her dedication, receiving the centre’s award for excellence in health promotion. Workun said the Community Activities Group’s work is focused on making connections between people living in the community. “Really it is not so much about the activities, it is about the members of the community to come out and get to know each other,” Workun said. “It is about connecting with our neighbours and that is why I do what I do.” The Sandy Hill centre award, created in 2007, distinguishes an individual who

has contributed to promoting health and wellness in the community. According to the centre, these unsung heroes deserve recognition for their contributions to building a healthy Sandy Hill and Old Ottawa East communities through activities such as health education, and who demonstrate leadership by collaborating with others to promote these activities. The centre specifically acknowledged Workun’s dedication to the Main Event, a community party and garage sale, as well as her efforts raising money for the revitalization of the Brantwood Park Field house and for her support in the Springhurst Park play structure revitalization. Workun always looked at her role as working to get people involved, and getting engaged and find what they want. Recently, the activities group had great success with a weekly spring community barbecue. “We do all the traditional classes, but sometimes it is the simplest things that grab people’s attention,” Workun said. “The spring barbecue, I have had in my mind for a

few years and should have done sooner. I think the always interesting part is seeing what gets people excited and interested in coming out.” Because of the success of the spring barbecues, the group will hold weekly fall barbecues in September. The group works at appealing to the community and responding to needs in the community, including working to fulfil a demand for an after school program in the area. Following consultation with the community, an after school program is starting up this September at the Brantwood Park field house. Workun said is the group is also working on plans to bring a skateboard park to Old Ottawa East. Workun tries to encourage all residents to pitch in with activities for the community. “We are a vibrant community and (the group) is a great way to connect with the neighbours, to get involved,” Workun said. “I think it is important to connect with your neighbours. I volunteer because of the connection you create with the people. It is special and I have had the opportunity to meet people I would not normally meet in my day to day life and see people enjoying the activities we organize for the community. It is why I do it.”

Council backtracks on Rothwell Heights renovation Laura Mueller

the charge to claw back those recommended approvals, and council voted to put the brakes on any renovations at all.

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - In a surprise move to protect a potential heritage district, city council put the brakes on the planning committee’s approval of major alterations to a Rothwell Heights home. A resident of the neighbourhood, Seema Narula Aurora, got the planning committee’s support for part of a plan to renovate her home and add a large garage for a boat, but an outcry from heritage conservation advocates led council to rethink the decision. The home in question, located at 19 Kindle Crt., is located in a neighbourhood being studied for possible designation as the Briarcliffe Heritage District. If the plan moves forward, it would be the first example of a midcentury modern heritage district in Canada and the homes inside the district would have certain restrictions on what could be altered. But in the meantime, the city shouldn’t allow anything in the potential heritage district to be changed in a way that could compromise the study, argued Heritage Ottawa, a local advocacy group. “They did approve doing the heritage study in December,” said David Flemming, past president of Heritage Ottawa. “Why would they do something staff tells them would really jeopardize that

WHAT IS HERITAGE?

City of Ottawa

The square design of the Duncan Home at 19 Kindle Crt. will be preserved after city council reversed a decision to allow an addition that would alter the rectangular structure designed by Paul Schoeler, who was interested in “refining the dimensions of the simple box as a container for life” according to a city staff report. whole study?” DUNCAN HOUSE

The Duncan House, as 19 Kindle Crt. is known, is one of the most significant houses in the potential district, according to a city staff report. The house was built in 1966 and named for Thaddeus Duncan, one of the original four members of the Briarcliffe Partnership. It was designed by Paul

Schoeler and is considered an “excellent example of midcentury modern residential architecture in Ottawa” that was trendy during the post-war period, according to the report. The home’s owner, Aurora, wanted to add a semicircular addition to the back of the house, a one-storey addition on the side of the home and a 158square-metre detached garage that could hold two cars and a boat. While an addition on the

back of the home would be OK if it was rectangular instead of a semicircle, Collins said, the other two changes would compromise the defining characteristics of the home. The city’s heritage planner on the file, Lesley Collins, agreed with Heritage Ottawa and had recommended against approving the additions to the home at 19 Kindle Crt. and said the homeowner should re-apply after the heri-

tage district study (and possible heritage designation) are completed. While the planning committee agreed with staff that a rectangular addition on the back would be OK during its June 26 meeting, the committee voted against staff’s recommendation and approved the side addition and garage. Then at city council two weeks later, planning committee chairman Peter Hume led

City councillor for the ward, Tim Tierney, said the issue was one of the most challenging he has dealt with since being elected in 2010. He told fellow councillors that he received a “barrage” of emails the day before the council vote, but in his opinion, addressing those concerns is the whole point of having a study period for the heritage district. “We have to look at staff’s recommendation (to reject the application to alter 19 Kindle Crt.,)” Tierney said. “If we don’t support it, we have to have good reasons why we don’t.” Tierney said he wants to see the issue delayed until the study is completed in December. His neighbouring east-end councillor, Innes Ward Coun. Rainer Bloess, had harsh words of disagreement. “There’s a bit of a sham going on in the heritage world,” he said. “We’re being sucked into this sham.” Bloess, the only councillor to vote in favour of the proposed renovations to the Duncan House, argued that the home is modern and therefore doesn’t have any heritage value that must be preserved.

Artists sought to spiff up LRT stations Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

City of Ottawa

The city is seeking professional artists it could call on to design public artworks for the upcoming light-trail transit system connection Tunney’s Pasture Station in the west to Blair Station in the east. art program to demonstrate “artistic excellence,” reflect the appropriate community and station themes and incorporate local contexts, based on discussions with communities and stakeholders. The artworks are intended to be permanent and linked with the architectural and landscape design of the station. Each art project could

have a budget of $200,000 to $750,000. Artists would be assigned to specific station projects next spring and final designs would be approved by December of 2013. Construction of the lightrail system is supposed to be completed by December of 2017, with the system fully operational by June of 2018.

EMC news - The city is looking for artists to make the future light-rail stations more vibrant. The city doesn’t want specific ideas for pieces of art just yet. First, it wants to amass a shortlist of artists the city thinks are right for the project. Some of those artists could later be commissioned to create works for the 13 stations planned between Blair and Tunney’s Pasture. The light rail project is by far the city’s largest infrastructure investment, with $2.1 billion being poured into the first phase alone. The rail line, including the 2.5-kilometre tunnel under the city’s core, will be ready to roll by late 2017. For area artists now’s the time to get involved in the project, either as an individual artist or as a collective. The opportunity is open to all “professional” artists who are Canadian citizens (or permanent residents) living within a 150-kilometre radius of Ottawa. The city is looking for artists or artist-led teams with experience in creating permanent, interior or exterior urban-scale works. A 500-word artist statement is required, in addition to a resume and images and samples of artistic works. For full application guidelines, visit ottawalightrail.ca/en/projectplan/public-art.

Shootings cause for concern, not revolution

A

recent spike in the number of gangrelated shootings in Toronto and Ottawa has alarmed both residents and the police forces in those cities. Toronto police are investigating the third shooting death in that city over a span of three days, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 30th homicide in 2012. The same day he called Toronto â&#x20AC;&#x153;the safest city in the world,â&#x20AC;? Toronto Mayor Rob declared war on gang-related

crime. The mayor called for a meeting with Premier Dalton McGuinty to request support for a crackdown on gang violence. Meanwhile, in Ottawa, the police issued a report last month naming the city one of the safest municipalities in Canada. But police have also expressed alarm over the number of shootings this year. There have been 27 shootings in Ottawa so far this

year, four more than all of 2011. More than half of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shootings are gang-related, said Ottawa police, including one last week during a car chase at Fisher Avenue near Baseline Road. The Ottawa police guns and gangs unit has investigated four more shootings than it has compared to all of last year. But this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a citywide epidemic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the gang-related shootings are occurring in

specific neighbourhoods, such as South Keys, and some of the other older suburbs in south Ottawa. Despite the spike in the number of shootings in Ottawa, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the need for a knee-jerk reaction, as seems to be suggested by Mayor Ford. The solution seems simple: reallocate more resources to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trouble spots. This could mean beefing up proactive policing efforts in Ottawa neighbourhoods hit

with gang-related violence or assigning more officers to the guns and gangs unit patrolling those areas. Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crime statistics donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call for a drastic change. This is a geographicallyspecific problem requiring a localized solution. The spike in shootings does not demand a kneejerk reaction that is more political than anything else. A similar spike in the police budget is unlikely. Keep in mind the provin-

cial government is desperately trying to trim its budget to help reduce Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deficit. Similarly, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson has set a 2.5 per cent cap on the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including the police force. Next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft police budget calls for a 5.6 per cent increase, which will have to be trimmed by $6 million to meet the budget cap. There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much room either in the province or the municipality to go on a hiring spree. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to our police chief to figure out how to best allocate the limited resources he has.

COLUMN

It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a race â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or is it? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

B

y now, having lived a bit, you know that the world is divided into two kinds of people. There are those who stay in the lane they are in and those who keep jumping to what they hope is a faster one. This summer, you are likely to find out which you are, and how to deal with the other kind. The Queensway, of course, is a classic testing ground. Driving west or east from downtown at rush hour, you are continually faced with choices. Is the left-hand lane really a passing lane, or will it just be clogged with people who hope it is? The right-hand will end eventually. Will you stay on it until the bitter end and then barge into traffic, or will you move over earlier? The lane beside you seems to be moving a bit better. Will you jump over into it, or just stay where you are and hope for the best? It depends on what type you are, and in some ways, you probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have as much choice as you thought you had. Your genes might predetermine what you do. Or the way you were taught to drive by your mother or father. Those of us who make one choice and stick to it require a mature outlook, because it means we have to accept the fact that other people, the lane-changers, might get there before us and we have to keep the difficult belief that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if they do. In other words, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a competition. Raised in a society where competition dominates our economic life and professional sports permeate our society, it is a tough deci-

sion to decide that you are not playing. But it is a relief in a way. Take the border, for example. There you are, sitting in four or five or seven lanes of traffic for half an hour or maybe even more. The guy in front just moved one lane left, making an obstacle of himself while doing so. You stay where you are, partly because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be that guy and partly because you may not have the nerve to do what he did. And you remind yourself it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a competition. Because what does it matter if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sailing freely along the 401 two minutes before you are? But still, you watch him, in his huge ugly black SUV. Sometimes your line moves and you seem to be catching up with him. But then his line moves and moves again and you are losing sight of him, even though it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a competition. Coming the other way, there are those people sneaking along on the side where it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like there even was a line. Are they jumping the queue or just part of the NEXUS line? It takes coolness, a strong-will and just a bit of inertia to stay where you are. Eventually, as you need to remind yourself, you get through and all is forgotten, even your nagging little wish that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have his car searched by the customs people or maybe get a flat tire down the road. (As an aside, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming back this way, you discover that the drivers are faster and crazier up here than down there, a reversal of the national stereotypes.) Somehow one of our basic needs is to feel that we are smarter than the other guy. That either means that we applaud ourselves for getting ahead in the line or we pity the guy who gets ahead in the line because he must have a miserable life if he has to get his fun getting ahead of us. In the end, we both get there. But when we do, one of us keeps pushing the elevator button when it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrive right away and the other just waits. The elevator gets there too.

Finding the elusive balance

A

springtime essay in The Atlantic reinvigorated the work-life balance debate that perpetually lays dormant in my mind. In Why women still can’t have it all, Anne-Marie Slaughter, a tenured Princeton professor and former policy advisor to U.S. secretary of state, contemplated the many reasons highlyeducated women are fleeing powerful careers for the sake of their families. Friends posting and reposting this article applauded Slaughter for her support of stay-at-home mothers. But frankly, that wasn’t her point at all. In fact, if one were to ask her, Slaughter would probably suggest women don’t do themselves any favours by opting out of their professional lives entirely. Slaughter doesn’t advocate that women throw all their energies into either careers or families. Rather, she suggests that women have “contributed to the fetish of the one-dimensional life,” where people are expected to work longer hours, be continuously connected to their employers and work 70-hourplus weeks. On the other end

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse of the spectrum are those who have decided no balance between work and family can be found, so they’ve given up their careers altogether. But the true way forward, argues Slaughter, is to advocate for workplaces that allow people to find fulfilment in multiple dimensions of their lives simultaneously. Her suggestions on how to achieve more balance – if one can use the “b” word -- are wide-ranging. Some involve widespread policy changes, such as having school hours match work hours. But at the crux of Slaughter’s argument is that before women – and men, for that matter – can “have it all,” a paradigm shift in workplace culture needs to occur. For one thing, men and women need to work together to rid workplaces of “macho” cultures that increasingly seem

to value face time over work productivity. Slaughter notes that the rise of technology, which promised to allow more employees opportunities to telecommute, thereby giving them more flexibility, has backfired. Instead, employees are expected to be on-call 24/7. And despite the fact the technology exists, there continues to be much emphasis on bum-in-seat time, with promotions and other opportunities based on hours and/or years of service. The reality for most women, says Slaughter, is that it’s not always possible, nor desirable, to continue the traditional upward climb to powerful positions during the childrearing years. “Women should think about the climb to leadership not in terms of a straight upward slope, but as irregular

stair steps, with periodic plateaus (and even dips), when they turn down promotions to remain in a job that works for their family situation; when they leave high-powered jobs and spend a year or two at home on a reduced schedule; or when they step off a conventional professional track to take a consulting position or project-based work for a number of years.” Employers, too, need to value the entrepreneurial experience that can come from these periodic career irregularities. Rather than penalize women for stepping off the traditional career track, employers should look for ways to promote these women when the time is right and work on finding ways to retain women in whom they have invested a lot of time and resources. Failure to change the typical workplace culture, which views employees with families as a burden, will unfortunately mean that our professional workforce will lose talented men and women who are forced to make a choice between their careers and family lives. Who wants that kind of one-dimensional leadership anyway?

Power Out? Here’s What to Do

R0011511566

At Hydro Ottawa we take pride in keeping Ottawa’s power supply reliable. But an extended power outage, such as the 1998 ice storm, can occur. If your power goes out for an extended period of time, will you be ready? First, prepare ahead. Have a first aid kit with enough supplies (including prescriptions) to keep your family self-sufficient in your home for at least three days. Keep a list of emergency contact numbers, and ensure you have a phone that does not need electricity. You can get updates about power restoration by calling Hydro Ottawa at 613-738-0188; or from your wireless, mobile device at www.hydroottawa.com/outages. Make sure you have enough water, as well as easy-to-store food that does not need refrigeration or cooking. Keep flashlights and batteries ready. A battery-powered or wind-up radio would be helpful.

Sailing in friendship along the canal Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - About 50 young people and 30 police officers from seven different enforcement agencies took to the water on July 18 to help build friendship along the Rideau Canal. The 12th annual Flotilla for Friendship pairs up aboriginal youth of all ages with enforcement officers in an effort to bridge the gap between the police and the First Nations community by building trusting relationships. It was Ottawa police Insp. Pat Flanagan’s second time participating in the event. He said for him, the day is all about bonding with his two team members in the canoe. “It is a privilege to get away from the office, so to speak, and connect with youth without the uniform and on a personal level,” Flanagan said. “We both learn from

each other.” And what’s the best part about canoeing down the canal? According to nine-yearold Theland Kicknosway, everything. Also in his second year participating in the campaign, Kicknosway and his nine-year-old friend Camden Nicholson were both bouncing around the marina docks, waiting as patiently as possible for the paddling to start. For foster mom and Ottawa Inuit Children’s Centre employee Heidi Langille the experience for the children is an exciting one. “It is the event in the summer everyone always asks about,” Langille said. “It is the kids’ favourite day of the summer.” Some children were shy to be split up and partnered with various officers, but most, like Flanagan, made it easy. “I brought the kids police

hats and that was it,” Flanagan said. “Today is about building trust and working on that trust. There are no phones, no computers. Just dialogue in the canoe. It is great.” Royal Canadian Mounted Police Chief Supt. Serge Therriault finds the connection made on the water is the key to success with the youth and the success of the flotilla event. “It is a great opportunity to connect with the kids,” Therriault said. “And we get to do it in a different place, out on the water.” Lynda Kitchikeesic Juden organized the event, working with police services and aboriginal service providers to make the day a success. The goal of the program is to help remove some of the obstacles that hinder co-existence among police and the aboriginals. A day-long event, the chil-

dren from the Odawa Native Friendship Centre, Minwaashin Lodge, Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health and the Ottawa Inuit Children’s Centre participated in the canoeing event and spent the day on the water with officers from the Ontario Provincial Police, Sûreté du Québec, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Lac Simon, Akwesasne Mohawk, Eagle Lake and Ottawa Police Services. The canoes enter the water at Dow’s Lake Marina, teams are formed and paddle along the Rideau Canal. The teams then portage down to the Ottawa River and paddle upstream to Victoria Island for a police demo and a cultural feast. The feast at Victoria Island included traditional foods offered at the Aboriginal Experience cultural attraction and a demonstration from Quebec police officers.

In the event of an extended outage, turn off or unplug appliances including air conditioners and electronics to help avoid a power surge when the electricity is restored. Keep your refrigerator and freezer doors shut as much as possible – food will keep for 12 hours in the refrigerator and 24 to 48 hours in a freezer. To ensure your safety, ensure no one goes near downed power lines. Never use barbecues, camp stoves or generators indoors. If you use a fireplace for heat, ensure that your chimney is free of creosote buildup or debris. Use flashlights rather than candles; if you must use candles, place them in a non-combustible container away from drapes and carpets. In an extended winter outage, shut off power to the electric water heater, shut off water at the main valve (usually found in the basement near the water meter), open taps to drain the pipes and leave taps open, flush toilets to empty them, and drain the dishwasher and washing machine. It is rare that we have to deal with extended power outages, but it is best to be prepared. These tips will help to prepare you and your family, and keep you safe.

Boot-stomping good time with Ottawa’s rockabilly band July 28 release party planned Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - Get ready to put dancing shoes on as Ottawa-based Dang Guilty celebrates their first studio album in the Glebe with an allout rocking release party. A three piece ensemble, the band comprises of two high school classmates Joel Hayward on vocals and guitars and bassist James Rooke, along with Andy Clapson on drums. Dang Guilty plays a little bit of rhythm and blues, surf rock and old fashioned rock and roll - all with a country heart. Likened to music from a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack, the band loves putting on a great show for old and new fans alike. “The biggest thing is we always aim to throw a party,” Hayward said. “So it will be a fun atmosphere with lots of dancing.” The CD release party will take place at Irene’s Pub at 885 Bank St. in the Glebe on July 28. The band is looking forward to performing at the pub for the first time. “It is our first time playing here,” Hayward said. “But as a band, it will be an honour, as it is one of the main staples to play at in Ottawa.” The band spent 30 hours in

the studio recording the fivesong EP, Tail Draggin’. “Initially I bring in my songs, with the melody and the lyrics, but then James (Rooke) is really good at the arrangement and Andy (Clapson) is an awesome drummer who comes up with these great hooks,” Hayward said. “At the end of the day, really, we are all composers.” Most of the tracks were laid down in one take. Hayward said they love their sound when they are performing and wanted to emulate that as much as possible in the studio. “Sometimes overworking a song can be too much,” Hayward said. “And we are happy with our end product.” Every thing about the release has been handled with care by the band, including 150 hand-made limited edition copies. “We burnt the CDs ourselves and now are still in the process (of) working on the cover art,” Hayward said. Describing the album covers, Hayward said it will all be hand printed. With only 150 copies available for sale at the release party, Hayward said he hopes fans will enjoy and appreciate the effort. After the release party, the

winning fantasy author and folk musician who is a longtime friend of the band. “I got heavily involved in the folk scene when I moved

here,” Hayward said. “Ottawa has a really good folk scene.” The party gets underway at 9 p.m., and there is a $7 cover charge.

first put this soup recipe in my column a few years ago, and it was so popular that I’m repeating it. The idea of having cold soup rather than hot may seem strange, but it can be wonderfully refreshing on a hot summer day. Chilled soup is no stranger to people living in hot climates. Spanish gazpacho is a tomato-based soup that’s almost like a salad in a bowl. French Vichysoisse, made with potatoes and leeks, is traditionally served cold. And one of my own favourites is a tomato soup flavoured with basil and mint. When you’re serving a light supper that’s mainly salads and cold cuts, a bowl of chilled soup makes a perfect first course. It whets the appetite, but doesn’t fill you up. This carrot soup is delicious when chilled. It can be served in mugs for a casual outdoor picnic or in your best china soup bowls as a first course for a summer lunch or dinner party. Fresh ginger gives this

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff carrot soup a totally different flavour. Depending on how much you use, the intensity of the flavour will be either just noticeable or very distinctive. If you’re not sure which you prefer, go for the smaller amount first. The recipe calls for milk, but you can use cream if you want a richer flavour. If you’re a traditionalist, this soup can be served hot rather than cold. GINGER CARROT SOUP

2 tbsp. butter 1 onion, finely chopped 1/2 clove garlic, minced 1 to 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger root 1/2 tsp. curry powder 3 cups sliced carrots 1/4 cup uncooked rice 4 1/2 cups water 2 chicken bouillon cubes

In a large saucepan, melt the butter and cook the onion and garlic until softened. Add the grated ginger and curry powder and cook two or three minutes more without letting the mixture brown. Add the carrots, rice, water, bouillon cubes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat then cover. Simmer until the carrots and rice are cooked, about 45 minutes. Puree in a blender, in two batches if necessary. Add the milk. If you’re serving this hot, return the soup to the saucepan and reheat, without boiling. If serving cold, chill in the refrigerator.

New bathing suits donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave girls bored

I

canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe you let those girls go swimming in their underwear,â&#x20AC;? Aunt Lizzie said at the supper table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t underwear,â&#x20AC;? my sister Audrey said. And she explained how Mother had made bloomer-like bottoms and sleeveless tops, because we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford real swimming suits from Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store in Renfrew. She told Aunt Lizzie just about all the girls on the Northcote Side Road were similarly dressed when they swam in the Bonnechere. Well, not my little friend Joyce. But she lived in a brick house and had a real flush toilet in their bathroom. No backyard outhouse and Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue on a spike at their farm! And she had a real bathing suit and a bright red rubber bathing cap and matching rubber shoes. But she was still my friend and it made no difference to

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories Joyce that I was dressed in hand-me-downs or homemade blouses and dresses out of flour bag and wore an outfit Mother had made out of broadcloth at nine centsa-yard at Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store to swim in. But it seemed to be a major issue to Aunt Lizzie and she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to let it die. She continued to harp on it right up until it was time to go to bed, adding in usual her subtle way, that Mother wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really good farm-wife material, coming from New York and all. I knew Mother couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see the last of Aunt Lizzie.

It was a hot and blistering day when we got up the next morning and loaded Aunt Lizzie and her genuine cow-hide leather suitcases onto the wagon for the trip into Renfrew to the station. We had to take the wagon, because we all couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit into the Model T. We five kids never wanted to miss a trip into Renfrew when there was no school and so we piled on the wagon, hanging on for dear life, with Mother, Father and Aunt Lizzie sitting on the one seat at the front. We all waved as the train pulled out of the station and

even Father said he was glad to see the last of his sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once a year is once too often,â&#x20AC;? he said. Well, Aunt Lizzie was only gone a week when a parcel, wrapped in brown paper, arrived in the mail. Lo and behold, when Mother opened it, there were two brand new bathing suits, one for me and one for my sister Audrey. They were identical in style and colour, but of course in two different sizes. They were white and navy stripes and even though it was late in the day, Mother said we could try them on and take a fast run down to the Bonnechere and have a dip. Well, you never saw two girls strip down so fast in your life. Audrey and I never even stopped to dip our toes in the water to test it first. We dove in and bobbed up and down, splashed each other and got

the suits thoroughly soaked. Mother had told us we could only stay in the water a few minutes, just long enough to try out the new swim suits. There was supper to think of as we climbed out of the water. The suits were as stiff as boards. Audreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look too bad because she had a figure underneath. But mine completely left my body and kept the water locked in it like a sealed drum. The weight of the water caused the suit to leave my upper body, and it stretched all the way down to my knees. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get rid of it and Audrey and I waddled our way back home to show Mother what had happened and have her try to explain why two lovely bathing suits had turned into suits of armour when they got wet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pure wool - thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why,â&#x20AC;? Mother said,

as she turned the suits inside out to examine them more closely.Well, as they dried over the back fence, they stayed stiff as boards and as they dried they got smaller and smaller, which suited Audrey and me just fine. Neither of us had any intention of ever wearing them again. It was back to the homemade broadcloth bloomers and blousettes for us. Of course, we had to write Aunt Lizzie thank you letters and we were never allowed to lie. I told her thanks, saying I had never had a store-bought bathing suit before, and the colour was very nice. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell her that both suits had been put in the trunk upstairs or that one day they could probably be seen in one of the braided rugs Mother made every fall out of old scraps of wool material rescued from the hand-me-down box.

Cycling advocacy group gets findings from new survey Continued from page 1

The new markings allow cyclists to use an underpass under Nicholas Street at the University of Ottawa, near Campus Station, that connects Sandy Hill to the Corkstown footbridge and west to Centretown, Moor said. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;hugely successfulâ&#x20AC;? initiative will be followed up this year by another simple improvement to Rideau Canal access: the installation of a bike ramp attached to the stairs at Hartwell Locks to allow cyclists to get up and down from the path â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an access that is used by thousands of people during the National

Capital Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sunday Bike Days in the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Small things like that are so easy and such big wins for the city,â&#x20AC;? Moor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think with the wonderful connections we have with the city now we can actually convince them and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Take these three or four (improvements), put them in place and all of a sudden you make thousands of people happy for next to nothing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

British High Commissioner wishes Canadian Olympians well Andrew Pocock will keep a close eye on Olympic Games Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Although he will be on duty in Ottawa over the next few weeks, the British high commissioner said he will be keeping an eye on London when the 2012 Olympic Games get underway on July 27. British High Commissioner Andrew Pocock will be watching the Games on the television at his home in Ottawa this week, cheering on the British Olympians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think as a compromise, Canada can win silver in everything,â&#x20AC;? Pocock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But seriously, we wish for similar success as Canada had in the winter games. I think the host country doing well always adds to the success of the games.â&#x20AC;? The British High Commission in Ottawa and consulates across Canada will raise the Olympic ďŹ&#x201A;ag at noon on July 27

to mark the start of the Games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be a symbolic gesture, showing the games are ready to go,â&#x20AC;? Pocock said. The commission will also host an Olympics viewing party for staff, friends and family during the opening ceremonies on July 27 at Earnscliffe, the high commissionerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ofďŹ cial residence in Ottawa. Looking forward to the opening ceremonies, Pocock said he is in the dark as much as anyone else when it comes to what can be expected for the big event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I knew anything, I think I would have to be shot,â&#x20AC;? Pocock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know it is always a big secret, when it comes to what to expect with the opening ceremony. I will certainly be looking forward to it.â&#x20AC;? This will be the second Olympic-themed event the commission has hosted. On June 27, Pocock and his wife, Julie welcomed more than 400 guests to their home to mark the ďŹ nal one-month countdown of the games. Pocock visited London in May and found the city was

bustling to get ready for the arrival of Olympians and fans alike.

We wish for similar success as Canada had in the winter games. I think the host country doing well always adds to the success of the games. ANDREW POCOCK, BRITISH HIGH COMMISSIONER

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The infrastructure is extraordinary, the Olympic Park itself, it is the largest construction project in Europe,â&#x20AC;? Pocock said. Weather, Pocock added, could play a signiďŹ cant role during the Games, as the ďŹ rst two weeks in July received more rain than typically falls in the entire month, making it the wettest July in London on record. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer is very wet this year,â&#x20AC;? Pocock said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of the events are weather free, but there are a lot that rely on drier conditions. I will be hoping for the sun.â&#x20AC;? The high commissioner said he will be paying particular attention to the swimming events which he ďŹ nds are the most entertaining to watch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Competitive swimming has always interested me, and I hope the U.K. will do well,â&#x20AC;? Pocock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course cycling, gymnastics, all the sports are remarkable to watch. All the athletes are incredibly dedicated.â&#x20AC;? In the lead-up to the games, Pocock met with a number of Canadian Olympians and Paralympians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The work they do is just not on the ďŹ eld or court, it is everything, coaches, trainers, it is an amazing thing, it requires enormous dedication and I wish Canada luck, both in the Olympic Games and Paralympics.â&#x20AC;? Pocock said the commission will raise the Olympic ďŹ&#x201A;ag again at the start of the Paralympics games on Aug. 29.

Louis Riel grads, best friends head off on tennis scholarships Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - Chanel Deschamps and Elianne DouglasMiron answer most questions with synchronized answers. The best friends graduated from Louis Riel Secondary School from the sport study program in June, train at the Carleton Tennis Centre on the Carleton University campus and will head to the United States on tennis scholarships at different schools in September. “We’re like a team,” said Douglas-Miron. “I don’t know what I’m going to do without her when we go.” Deschamps will head to Drury University in Springfield, Mo., to study French, while Douglas-Miron is headed west to Seattle to study business at the University of Washington. The past year has been a blur for Douglas-Miron who had to complete 15 credits – that’s all of Grade 11 and 12, plus one credit – in just 10 months. She returned to Ottawa from the National Training Centre in Montreal last summer to focus on school to make sure she could graduate in the required four years for her scholarship. Douglas-Miron, originally from Cumberland and now a resident of the Glebe, holds multiple national doubles titles and has made it to the

national singles finals three times. So it was up to Deschamps to keep her calm as she loaded up on high school credits and they went through the sport study program, still leaving school early as a part of a modified schedule to train together. It was a quiet year on the tournament circuit for both of them, as they focused on finishing their senior secondary academic year. It has been Deschamps’s long-time goal in tennis to attain a scholarship, something she’s been working steadily towards since starting at Louis Riel in Grade 7. But as much as the pair is like two peas in a pod, their personalities are very different. “I calm her down, but she gets me going,” said Deschamps, who attended Louis Riel from Grade 7 onwards. Douglas-Miron will be able to help out Deschamps when she leaves for school, something she did for three years in Grade 9 to train with the national team. “She’s going to go to school first, so I’ll talk her down,” said Douglas-Miron. “I’m used to being in those situations away from home.” Deschamps fell in love with Drury University “from the moment I stepped on campus” she said. The school is consistently ranked in the top five

Elianne Douglas-Miron, left, and Chanel Deschamps at the Carleton Tennis Centre, where the pair of Louis Riel graduates train. National Collegiate Athletic Association Div. 2 schools for tennis every year, so she plans to spend the first year settling into her team and aiming to play with as high a ranking as possible. Douglas-Miron, who will

be playing at the higher NCAA Div. 1, is already shooting to make it to the top of her team ranking and gain a national ranking in singles and doubles as early into her university career as she can. For now, they can still see

each other on a regular basis as they continue to train with coach Tony Milo at Carleton University for the summer. And even though they won’t spend every day together, like the past year of their lives, they’ve already planned to

speak through Skype almost every day once they’re apart. “We’re really excited to go to university and start a new chapter,” said Douglas-Miron. “But it’s going to be tough not seeing each other every day,” Deschamps said.

Pet Adoptions PET OF THE WEEK SCOOBY ID#A144927

ALI

Scooby is a neutered male three-year-old Pekingese mix who was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on June 19. Scooby loves to look and feel his best – he will need to visit a professional every so often to have his hair done. He may be small in stature but his independent nature shines through – he likes to do things on his own terms and enjoys speaking his mind. With more training and socializing he may become desensitized to other dogs but for now he’s happy not to have to spend much time with them.

ID#A141388 Ali is a neutered male, black Domestic Shorthair cat who is about five years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on March 20 but is now available for adoption. Ali would love to curl up in ball on your lap. He’s quite shy until he gets to know you. He gets along best with gentle, calm people who like to sit down with a cat for a cuddle in a calm, quiet home.

SUMMER SAFETY FOR PETS

Dogs do not have the ability to sweat, therefore if they are left for even a short period of time in a car (windows open or not), their lives could be in danger. With their body temperature normally at 39 degrees Celsius, a dog can only endure temperatures barely over 40 degrees Celsius for a very short time before they suffer from heat-stress, irreparable brain damage or death. Please call the OHS emergency line at 613-725-1532 if you see a dog in a car on a hot day. Here are a few other tips to keep your companion animals safe this summer:

ÊUvÊޜÕÀÊ«iÌÊëi˜`ÃʏœÌÃʜvÊ̈“iÊ outdoors, make sure there is adequate shelter for protection from the sun/ heat. Outside kennels need to be well ventilated and situated in shaded areas. Clean, fresh water must be accessible at all times. ÊU"˜Ê…œÌÌiÀÊ`>ÞÃ]ʓœ˜ˆÌœÀÊޜÕÀÊ«iÌÃ½Ê activity and be careful not to over exert them. Watch for signs of heat stress, excessive panting, disorientation, staring or anxious expression and weakness. Bring your pet to a VœœÊ>Ài>]Ê}À>`Õ>ÞʏœÜiÀÊޜÕÀÊ«i̽ÃÊ temperature by immersing his or her paws in cold water or hosing him or her down and call your veterinarian immediately. ÊU7…i˜Ê̅iʅi>ÌÊ>˜`ʅՓˆ`ˆÌÞÊÀˆÃi]Ê be especially careful with short-nosed dogs (pugs, bull-dogs, etc.) and older animals. Exercise your pets in the early morning or late evening to avoid the midday heat.

ÊU-…>ۈ˜}Ê>ʅ>ˆÀÞÊ«iÌÊvœÀÊ̅iÊÃՓ“iÀÊ may seem like a good idea, but they can actually get sunburned. Shave your pet at the beginning of the summer before it gets too hot. ÊU˜ÊÃՓ“iÀ]ʓœÃµÕˆÌœiÃÊ>ÀiʜÕÌʈ˜Ê full force. Heartworm prevention medication is recommended and available. See your veterinarian for details. ÊUi>Ê>˜`Ê̈VŽÊ«ÀiÛi˜Ìˆœ˜ÊˆÃʈ“«œÀ‡ tant. See your veterinarian for more information. ÊU7…i˜ÊޜÕÊÌ>ŽiÊޜÕÀÊ`œ}ʜÕÌÊvœÀÊ exercise, bring a portable water container for the both of you.

Hello! My name is Lily. I’m a 10 year old English Bull Terrier. I love to spin when I’m happy (look it up, it’s an English Bull Terrier trait). I really enjoy relaxing on the deck by the pool in the summer, but winter is my is my favourite time of year because I’m a huge Sens fan (even though I’m originally from Toronto)! 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

Every year during the summer months, the OHS Rescue and Investigation Services department receives hundreds of complaints relating to animals and hot weather. Dogs left unattended in parked cars top the list, followed closely by dogs left outside in the sun without water or shelter from the sun.

Fire victims get support from Ottawa South community Continued from page 1

“Everybody watches out for everybody else here. I can’t imagine living any place else.We are very grateful,” said Gorham. “I would like to say how appreciative my daughter and I are of the overwhelming support we have received.” The Girls Fit ‘n’ Fun Camp had planned a different fundraiser, but decided to raise money for the fire victims. “The girls were really interested in raising money for the families that were affected by the fires on Hopewell Avenue and we thought it was a fabulous cause,” said Aletha Phillips, organizer of the Girls Fit ‘n’ Fun Camp. She said the fundraiser helped show the kids how you can have fun and give back to the community at the same time. “It is important for the girls to learn to give back and how important being there for members of your community is in time of need,” Phillips said. “It is something that is

very dear to them.” For eight-year-old Anneka Dallin O’Grady, it means a lot giving back to the community. “It is nice to donate to people. It means a lot to me and I wanted to do it,” she said. The organizing efforts began the day after the fire and a Facebook page was created for those looking to lend a hand. More than 70 people have already shown their support to the victims and the fundraising efforts, offering clothing, food and furniture. “As a neighbor and human being I feel the need to make all of us aware of this event,” Maria Jose Avendaño posted on the Facebook page. “We can all help get them on their feet again. The street feels empty and walking outside my house is now different. Taking a look at the ‘new view’ of my front porch is horrific. This is not stopping Hopewell and the sense of unity amongst the neighbors grows everyday.”

Skate4Life rolling across Canada Ottawa resident raising money for Do It For Daron Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Ashley Gilbank lost her childhood friend, Rachel, to suicide. Rachel was only 24 years old. A gifted athlete, she had suffered a brain injury when she was hit by a car while jogging. “She was a perfectionist,” Gilbank said. “She thought she was putting her family through a lot with her injury. She couldn’t take it any more.” The downtown Ottawa resident felt that there was something she needed to do to raise money for youth mental health. That’s when she decided she was going to strap on her rollerblades and skate 10,000 kilometres across Canada, from the east to west coast. Her initiative is called Skate4Life and funds raised will go to support Do It For Daron at The Royal

Kristy Strauss

Ottawa resident Ashley Gilbank is rollerblading across Canada to raise funds and awareness for youth mental health. She arrived on Parliament Hill and spoke to reporters on July 18. Ottawa Mental Health Centre. She was greeted in Ottawa at Parliament Hill July 18 by Do It For Daron supporters, Luke Richardson and Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. Gilbank said she was excited to arrive in her hometown and added she feels energized even though she still has a long way to go.

Gilbank hopes to raise $60,000, but has only raised just under $2,000 so far. “You can hold a golf tournament and make triple the money, but I wanted to do something I thought was challenging for myself and something really difficult,” Gilbank said, adding that before she started training she hadn’t skated more than 30 kilometres in a day. “I’m not the most athletically built, so this is a big challenge.” She said telling others she was about to embark on this journey was difficult, just as it’s difficult for someone with a mental illness to open up about it to others. “When you have a mental illness, you don’t want to tell people,” Gilbank said, adding that she felt people wouldn’t believe she would do it. “I was afraid to tell people.” Gilbank started training in Ottawa for about a year and hit the road starting in Newfoundland by dipping a wheel in the Atlantic Ocean on June 4. She’s expected to complete her journey in October on the

coast of British Columbia. Throughout her journey so far, she said the biggest challenges she’s been faced with includes some of the roads and weather on the east coast during her first week. “The first day I had sun I rode 100 kilometres,” she said. To get her through the challenge, Gilbank said there’s a voice in the back of her head that tells her to just keep going. “Your mind wanders and you think about a lot of things,” she said, adding that she tries to give herself small goals throughout the day even though she has a ways to go. “I have to do this.” In addition to raising money, Gilbank said she hopes to raise awareness of youth mental health. “The biggest thing is to spread the message,” she said. “The funds are great, but it’s about getting the message out.” To donate, visit the Do It For Daron website at doitfordaron. com or www.skate4life2012. com.

EMC community - Canada Agriculture Museum visitors can go back in time and see real artifacts from cattle ranching and the first 100 years of the Calgary Stampede’s history. “Ranching is part of agriculture, so this was a perfect match for the museum,” said Suzanne Beauvais, assistant curator at the museum. The new display, curated by Franz Klingender, has been on this summer and will run at the museum until November. It features artifacts and cowboy gear from the early days of cattle ranching. Beauvais said the museum already had artifacts in collections that linked to ranching, but received cowboy clothing and equipment from a family whose grandfather used

to ranch in early 20th-century Alberta. “We had a wonderful western saddle, we got the gun they used, a Hudson Bay blanket and cowboy boots,” said Beauvais. Those articles were in addition to many other tools and artifacts. As part of the exhibit, she said the museum shows “real life” during the early years of the Calgary Stampede and the changing culture of the cowboy during the early part of the last century. “There was the idea that the cowboy was something getting lost and the culture was getting lost,” said Beauvais, adding the Calgary Stampede has always celebrated and embraced that culture. The display also includes a poster for the first Calgary Stampede made in 1912, contrasting the latest one made

this year for 2012. Photos from the stampede’s official photographer, an American named Marcus Belmont Marcell, are also on display. Some of these early photos show interesting things, said Beauvais, like the different nations that competed in the stampede and how they are dressed differently. But also, the photographs show how involved women were in the Calgary Stampede during its early years. “There were instruments for women too,” Beauvais said. “But by 1929, less and less women could participate and that’s something that’s just coming back.” For more information on the new display or for other events happening at the Canada Agriculture Museum, visit their website at agriculture. technomuses.ca.
