News - Upon learning the police are planning to review whether community police centres are still necessary, city councillors are calling for them to be saved. News that the Ottawa Police Service is planning a review of how best to deliver community policing services – including whether the city’s 15 bricksand-mortar centres need to be part of that function – came as a surprise to many city councillors. The matter came to light after residents in the Herongate neighbourhood noticed the sign on their community police centre at Cedarwood Drive coming down. In fact, the centre had been temporarily closed for months due to health and safety issues at the facility, said Supt. Ty Cameron, and it had been slated for permanent closure a month ago.

Community police officer Const. Rebecca Vanderwater’s role hasn’t changed and she will continue to work in the community, Cameron said. The issue prompted Cameron to consider whether a broader review of community police centres is warranted. That process is just getting underway and will likely continue into next year and the community will have plenty of chance to weigh in, Cameron said. Councillors who shared their thoughts were not enthused about more potential closures.Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, whose ward is served by the Herongate community police officer, said she wasn’t included in the decision to close the centre, which is technically in Coun. Peter Hume’s Alta Vista Ward.

Chris Penton, announced the plans to bring a farmers market back to the Vanier-New Edinburgh area this summer. Penton said the cancellation of Quartier Vanier’s farmers market last year opened the door for him to pursue other options for the community, and began looking at

properties along Beechwood as a prime location to reach residents from both sides of the street. “I wanted to bring it back,” Penton said. “I think this will be a great opportunity for the area.” When the Vanier farmers market was cancelled last year, mar-

Glashan Public School rallies for a green schoolyard Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - The students of Glashan Public School took

to the streets in protest on April 7, but it wasn’t a commentary on the state of their school. Rather, it was an effort to

the post-war era. Students, their parents, and school staff are hoping Glashan, located on the block bound by Catherine, Kent and Arlington Street, will be the winner of a $20,000 outdoor classroom – which would bring a green sanctuary to the asphalt-laden, west-facing school yard. A kick-off ceremony was followed by a street rally aimed at bolstering support for the school’s entry into the Trees of Knowledge competition, offered by Majesta in partnership with Trees Canada and Focus on Forests. Musician Bruce Cockburn, an Ottawa native and strong supporter of education and the environment, has offered the school his support in their bid. “I am pleased to offer whatever support I can to a plan that will surely bring a needed and healthy component to the school’s teaching program,� said Cockburn in a message reprinted on the school’s website. Principal Jim Taylor said the need for shade and green space – always in short supply in the urban core – became greater after a number of ash trees lining Catherine Street succumbed to the emerald

parents have driven this. They were the ones who started this through the school council because they had initial concerns about the ash trees. That really started the conversation, and it expanded to other things we can do with the yard.� The school’s plan for the yard is to introduce trees and grass over the next couple of years, while hopefully removing some of the asphalt coverage. Another project Glashan is considering is to enliven the bare brick walls of the school with large murals designed by its students. In the mean time, Tayler and his students will be waiting and hoping they are selected to be recipients of an outdoor classroom. “I think that we’re positioned to do very well in this contest,� said Tayler. “We’ve got tremendous local support behind us.� The winner and runners up in the Trees of Knowledge competition will be announced May 5.

Earth Day art show ready for Vanier Assumption Grade 6 class hosts recycled art show michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - This Earth Day the students of Amy Howe’s Grade 6 class would like to invite area residents to a different kind of art show. The Assumption Catholic School students will host the Assumption Earth Day Art Gala on April 22 in an effort to raise money for an end-ofthe-year class trip and to promote the idea that art can be made with anything – including recycled materials. The Earth Day show’s theme is environment-savvy art pieces. Every piece produced by the students will be created from reused materials, and everyone will contribute something to the show. Howe said going from the idea of hosting a show to making the kind of art the kids wanted wasn’t easy, but in the end, she added was definitely worth it. “This was a huge undertaking, but I think we are more than ready for the show,� she said. The class is participating in the entrepreneurial achievement program business adventure, which encourages students to create a business and raise money for local charities. Administered by the Learning Partnership, it connects public school classes with local businesses to teach the students how to run a successful business. Steve Kinnari, from TD Canada Trust, has mentored the students throughout the project. The class reached out to local Vanier artists for guidance throughout the project and during the show there will be an opportunity for attendees to create their own art with the help of those artists. The class has also involved its schoolmates in the project. Grade 2 students will be creating a piece of art based on egg cartons and grades 3 to 6 students will focus on using plastic bags as their main material to create. The money raised will help send the Grade 6 class on its graduation trip to St. Brigid’s Camp in Quebec. Doors will open at 5 p.m. with a va-

riety of activities for patrons: • Browsing through the different pieces of art made by the students, starting at $3 apiece. • Meeting local artists and viewing their art, with the option of purchase, as they will have their creations on display. • Viewing an environmental video presentation created by the Grade 6 class. • Participating in a super-creative MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND silent cake auction or enjoy refresh- Assumption Catholic School’s Grade 6 class would like all of Vanier’s art-loving residents to attend its Earth ments and cookies for purchase.

RVCA posts flood warnings for Ottawa Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - Rising water levels in streams and rivers in the Ottawa area kept the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority on its toes and waterfront residents nervous during the past week. Watches and warnings were posted following last week’s heavy rainfall and warm temperatures, with flooding reported in low-lying areas along the Rideau River, including Old Ottawa South and Vanier.

The Rideau River flooded portions of Riverain Park, Brewer Park and Windsor Park starting on April 8. Much further south, flooding was reported near Kemptville, as the Manotick and Long Island dams were opened to capacity, in order to pass as much water as possible. The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority issued a flood warning on April 10, covering the period of the following 48 hours. The lingering effects of a long, cold winter created the

conditions for flooding once spring-like conditions arrived, stated the authority. “The presence of an unusually thick and strong ice sheet on area rivers and streams has been a significant factor affecting water levels in many locations during this spring freshet,� an April 10 release stated. As well, deep frost left over from winter increased the amount of runoff into streams and rivers due to lower levels of absorption. The RVCA asks people living near waterways to take pre-

cautions to minimize any damage caused by flooding, and to be cautious when venturing near flooded areas. The Ottawa River, which draws most of its water from colder areas further north, experiences flooding later than the more southerly Rideau, though water levels have been rising steadily since April 7. A potential rainfall event forecast for the early part of this week is expected to raise water levels further. With files from Michelle Nash

News - Decisions made by the city’s planning department aren’t always popular, but they are well-informed, said general manager John Moser as he outlined the land-use policy projects his staff will tackle in 2014. He presented a list of projects the department will undertake in 2014, including which communities and main streets will get new plans to guide future development. Following on the heels of the updated Official Plan approved last fall, the city will review 32 zoning bylaws that will need updating in order to implement the goals of the plan. In the city’s central area, zoning bylaw update projects that will get underway in 2014 include: a review of building heights allowed in the Billings Bridge mixed-use centre, an implementation policy for permitted uses on Main Street in Old Ottawa East, as well as building height and permitted uses reviews for traditional main streets including Gladstone Avenue, Somerset Street, Bronson Av-

The city is also looking at developing an online permit and license system called E-Pal intended to ease the process of applying for development and other permits. That’s in addition to a few studies that are already underway and will wrap up in 2014, including: defining heights for mid-rise and high-rise buildings, drafting a policy for secondary dwellings in townhomes, updating floodplain and wetlands mapping and reviewing maximum sizes for office buildings more than 800 metres away from a transit station. City planning staff have been undergoing additional training, Moser said. Fifteen people have now completed an urban design certificate program, while five more planners were certified as LEED Green Associates, bringing the city’s total of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design experts to 17. Ninety staff members in the planning department also received training on how to better communicate with the public and present ideas. Moser said the department will soon be updating the types of consultations it undertakes as new consultation “toolkits� are rolled out. The

applications. A deadline of 75 days for the planning department was set around a dozen years ago, but in some development categories the city only hits that deadline for as little as 19 per cent of applications. Part of the issue is that development applications have become increasingly complex over the past 12 years, said Michael Mizzi, the city’s chief of development review services. The introduction of the Urban Design Review Panel in 2010 has also added another hurdle to the process, he said. “We might need to look at changing the target figure to be more realistic in today’s planning environment,� he said.

Scrap the Fair Elections Act

T

he most serious flaw among the many, many flaws in the Fair Elections Act is its author, MP Pierre Poilievre. The entire exercise should be scrapped because he is unfit to draw up such a bill, let alone maintain his position as democratic reform minister. Poilievre’s unprecedented attack on Chief Electoral Officer Marc Mayrand’s integrity, impartiality, and motives – saying the referee shouldn’t be wearing a team jersey – was compounded when he claimed Mayrand is trying to pad his power and budget. “He wants more power, a bigger budget and less accountability,� Poilievre told the Senate legal and constitutional affairs committee on April 8. It’s a baseless claim, of course. It even runs contrary to Mayrand’s past actions (always a good indicator of future actions). Instead, Poilievre’s bill reveals his party wants a bigger war chest, less accountability and more power to win elections by preventing non-Conservatives voters from casting their ballot. It encourages bigger contributions to larger parties by making campaign financing loopholes, creating less accountability from a weakened Elections Canada that uncovered the in-and-out scandal and other dirty tricks.

Mayrand aside, Poilievre also levelled baseless attacks against provincial chief electoral officers, scholars, public intellectuals, columnists, experts from various countries around the world, and protesters armed with petitions delivered to 25 MPs’ offices in Canada, including his own. Perhaps conservative Preston Manning, who recently criticized the bill, is next. The point is that elections experts are attacked en masse and without cause by Poilievre. He’s not politely pointing out a dfference of opinion he has with critics – he’s questioning their motives. Since he is presumably an expert on elections, as he is the democratic reform minister and spent some time thinking about the bill before drafting it, that is reason enough to disqualify him from penning it. Elections experts, according to his reasoning, ought to leave the Fair Elections Act up to someone with less specialized knowledge and, say, more common sense. Poilievre has proven that he is not intellectually capable of addressing arguments against the bill. Personal attacks are the surest sign of a flawed intelligence. It’s time to scrap the Fair Elections Act.

‘Social engineering’ or not, we’re better off

A

ttempts by government to change the way people behave are often criticized as “social engineering� and often the criticism is justified. But sometimes the attempts actually help. This is what we draw from an event last week where the city and Ottawa Public Health dropped some statistics on smoking. It’s way down in Ottawa. After stalling for a few years, the smoking rate has dropped to 11 per cent. It was 15 per cent three years ago. According to Ottawa Public Health, ours is the lowest smoking rate in the province. The city can’t claim full credit for this. What has happened here is part of a nation-wide trend that has been going on for decades. In 1999, the smoking rate was 23.2 per cent. In 1985, it was 35 per cent. Some of these figures come from different sources, so comparisons aren’t exact, but you get the idea: in the last 30 years, the percentage of smokers has been halved, or declined by two-thirds, depending on which numbers you use. That’s a significant change of behaviour, one of the most significant ever in our country. If you are old enough to remember when everyone smoked, you know the difference. It is common now to be at parties where everyone

Suddenly, it was not socially acceptable to light up. Suddenly, people became more fitness conscious. Suddenly, your children were at you about smoking. Suddenly, people weren’t smoking on television. Suddenly, there were no ashtrays in people’s houses. Things like that would have a big effect on us. But governmental action, both through regulation and education has made a difference too. The kids who nagged at you to quit probably picked that up in school. Good for the schools and good for governments at all levels that kept pumping the health statistics out at us.

Ottawa East News EMC - Thursday, April 17, 2014

Of greater significance, though, were the changes made in where smoking was allowable. It got to be really inconvenient to smoke, which was an incentive to quit. It also got to be really expensive, thanks to higher and higher taxes. A pack of cigarettes costs something like $8 now. That’s a deterrent, particularly to young people. But the inconvenience might be even more important. In the days when cigarettes were cheaper, they were also much more visible. You would see people smoking them in grocery stores, on airplanes, in bars, in shopping centres, in theatres, in restaurants, at work. Then the rules began changing. Cigarettes disappeared from the workplace, the stores, airplanes and trains. Then, with considerably more controversy, smoking was banned in bars and restaurants. This may have hurt bar and restaurant owners, but it made a big difference both to non-smokers and to smokers who were thinking of quitting (which, I can say as a reformed smoker, is all of them). The jury may be out on the economic impact of banning smoking in restaurants and bars. But it can be argued that those who want to smoke can step onto the sidewalk. Meanwhile, bars and restaurants have gained new customers who had previously stayed away because they didn’t like to be in a smoky environment.

In short, people who were inclined to quit anyway found they had a greater incentive to do so because smoking had become not just an unhealthy and expensive pastime, but a pain in the neck. Here, there was more help at the governmental level in the provision of anti-smoking programs at clinics and hospitals. Last year, more than 4,300 people took part in stop-smoking programs offered by Ottawa Public Health. There is still muttering about social engineering, particularly as smoking bans spread out of doors. But you can’t argue with the fact that we’re better off for it.

Ottawa - A new report has just been released which reveals 7 costly mistakes that most homeowners make when selling their home, and a 9 Step System that can help you sell your home fast and for the most amount of money. This industry report shows clearly how the traditional ways of selling homes have become increasingly less and less effective in today’s market. The fact of the matter is

that fully three quarters of homesellers don’t get what they want for their homes and become disillusioned and - worse - financially disadvantaged when they put their homes on the market. As this report uncovers, most homesellers make 7 deadly mistakes that cost them literally thousands of dollars. The good news is that each and every one of these mistakes is entirely preventable. In answer to this issue, industry insiders

have prepared a free special report entitled “The 9 Step System to Get Your Home Sold Fast and For Top Dollar�.

and diabetes. Sleep is essential for kids to learn, to create positive memories, to stay in good physical health. Teenagers that get a good night’s sleep are less prone to depression. School-aged kids are less likely to have clumsy accidents in the playground. Preschoolers are likely to have better cognitive functioning and fewer tantrums. So the next time you’re reading about the latest quick-fix for your children’s health or behaviour, you may want to take a step back and check the clock. How well are the kids winding down at night? Do they have a solid hour of relaxation time with books and quiet activities (no screens). How long are they sleeping? Many school-aged children need 10-11 hours of sleep per night. (One of my children needs 12). How well are they sleeping? Do they have too much stimuli in the bedroom? Are they snoring? Do they have too many stuffed animals in their rooms? Too much light? Improving the way your children sleep and the length of your children’s sleep can only have a positive outcome. Despite all the pop psychology available at the click of a button, your grandmother probably had it right: a good night’s sleep really is the best medicine.

There have been multiple research studies that have specifically examined the impact of insufficient sleep in children. One of my favourite overviews of this research is in the second chapter of the 2009 New York Times bestselling book, Nurture Shock, called “The lost hour.� The chapter’s title is based on the statistic that children today get an hour less sleep on average per night than children from 30 years ago. In one study cited by the book’s authors, journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman, a group of 77 fourthgraders and sixth-graders were given instruction to either go to bed early or stay up late for three nights. They were then subject to neurobiological testing. The study’s author determined that just one hour of lost sleep was “equivalent to (the loss of) two years of cognitive maturation and development.� In other words, summarized Bronson, “a slightly sleepy sixth-grader will perform in class like a mere fourthgrader.� Another study cited in the chapter makes a connection between sleep and regulation of insulin, concluding that kids who don’t sleep are prone to weight problems

t can be overwhelming to parent in the digital age. There’s so much advice out there about what to feed kids, how to discipline them and what sorts of extracurricular activities will make them well-rounded, perhaps even perfect, children. Frankly, much of it’s tosh. And as most of us try, inconsistently, to follow the latest advice trends – freefrom diets, punish-reward systems of discipline, prescription medication – we are simultaneously seeing a rise in overweight and obesity, constipation, attention deficit disorder, anxiety and behavioural problems in children. Our heads clouded with conflicting information on the Internet, maybe the solution is simpler than we realize: How well are our children sleeping? You may think that’s ridiculous, but sleep is the new vitamin and most of us aren’t getting enough, including children and adolescents. The more I talk to parents, the more I realize most kids seem to have obvious problems in the sleep area. Some have toddlers that refuse to nap, there are school-aged children awake at all hours of the night, others have night terrors or issues with bedwetting, then there’s the fatigued teens falling asleep in the classroom. And let’s not forget the not-so-obvious consequences of bad sleep: toddlers having temper tantrums, otherwise well-disciplined kids that are inattentive or belligerent at school or home, increased visits to hospital emergency rooms, teenagers who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to suffer from depres-

Vanier BIA hosts wedding show Local businesses offer chance to win your wedding Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Are you recently engaged? Thinking of popping the question? Hoping to have a chance to win your dream Vanier wedding? Well, Quartier Vanier has just the event for you. Bride Ideas - the Ultimate Wedding Showcase will take place at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health on April 26. The bridal show will feature Quartier Vanier businesses exclusively. “I think it’s amazing, the BIA has done a lot of cool things in the past,” said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. “They have always been innovative to make people discover Vanier, but I think what works well with this project, is that people can discover all the businesses in one spot in one hour.” Fleury, who also sits on the BIA’s board of directors, said he will also be participating in the show. The evening will feature a chance to taste different catering options,

view floral arrangements and watch a fashion show – all from area businesses. Kimberly Wilson, owner of Kimberly Wilson Bridal and Fashion Outlet, will showcase her bridal fashions at the show. “I have been asked in the past to participate in fashion shows, but never thought it was worth it,” Wilson said. “But this is all about showcasing our local businesses. This is about bringing people to the neighbourhood and we felt it was a great idea.” Wilson’s dresses will be modelled by both professional models and brides-to-be who have recently purchased dresses at the Beechwood Avenue shop. “I’ve never done this before, but I think it’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Glebe bride-to-be Marianne Wouters, who was at Wilson’s shop after a dress fitting for the fashion show. Fellow model and bride-to-be Jolène Savoir said she too is excited to step on the runway at the show. Both women said they jumped at the chance to participate. “I have been to a couple other bridal shops in this city and Kim’s shop is by far the best,” Wouters said. “It’s a great, comfortable shop to look for your dress.” The show will also feature musi-

cians, including Aboriginal drumming and a Lebanese dancing group. “We wanted to showcase the best of what Vanier merchants have to offer,” said stage manager MarieClaude Valiquet. The big draw is that anyone who attends the show has the chance to win an all-expenses-paid wedding. Anyone who attends that is getting married within the next 18 months will automatically be entered in the contest. The grand prize includes: • Catering from Todrics Fine Dining and Catering • Floral arrangements from Scentimental Flowers • Wedding gown, veil and hair accessory from Kimberly Wilson Bridal and Fashion Outlet • Wedding reception at the Wabano Centre. There will also be door prizes, which include a chance to win furniture from Zuffa Homes, free tuxedo and wedding gown dry cleaning from Monson Cleaners and free teeth whitening package from Healthy Smiles dental clinic, among others. Valiquet said there will also be swag bags for attendees. The bridal fun begins at 7 p.m. and is a first come, first serve. To purchase tickets or learn more about the event, visit vanierbia.com.

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority will be conducting Public Consultation sessions on proposed bell time changes and new walk zone maps. As each school community has its own concerns, please be sure to attend the session that pertains to your child(ren)’s school(s).

Carleton students launch crowd-funding project Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A group of Carleton students can’t wait to get their hands on live human tissue. The health sciences students recently launched a $25,000 fundraising initiative on Carleton University’s crowd-funding website, FutureFunder, in an effort to raise enough money to transform how they study anatomy at the school. The money raised would help purchase preparations of both the spinal cord and blood vessels of the brain. “Currently we are using plastic specimens where everything is perfect,” said Rebecca Yaworski, one of the students involved. “It’s obvious and easy. But real life is not like that. Real, real-life tissue is simply the better way to study and will definitely help with our understanding.” The project is supported and created by the university’s health sciences professors Iain McKinnell and Jeff Dawson who reached out to their students to help launch the fundraiser. Yaworski is a fourth-year biology student with a concentration in health sciences and jumped at the chance to work on the project and help get the word out about the Carleton Anatomy Project campaign. The university does not have the

facilities to store human cadavers so the best alternative, according to the group, is to purchase the plastinated models, which are resistant to wear and tear and offer the best thing next to a cadaver. The Orleans native couldn’t be more excited about the project or the concept of one day making it possible for Carleton students to be able to learn with real tissue samples. One of the unique aspects of the campaign is that three of the students working on it, including Yaworski, might graduate before the tissue samples reach the campus. But for the budding researcher, she said the idea of simply helping out another student’s studies, and potentially making future students as interested in medical science as she is would be reward enough. “I want to see more students interested in sciences,” she said. “We have a great science program and I think more people need to know that, and this will add to that.” The key to making this project work is the university’s one-year-old online fundraising initiative, FutureFunder. “You basically get to direct your own learning,” Yaworski said. Her fellow classmates agree. “I am involved in this program because I have always thought that revolutionizing learning, in any way shape or form, is the best way

to progress our society and actively contribute to our future,” said Tom Kazmirchuk who is in his third year at Carleton working on his bachelor of science in biology. To date, the online crowd-funding platform has raised more than $400,000 for student and professorled projects. The university reports that since the launch of the online funding opportunity, there has been a 50 per cent increase in first time donors. This project will be one of the first for FutureFunder to have a high dollar goal, but the students are not worried. Yaworski added that given the amount of time they have set to raise the funds, over 150 days she believes the students will be able to get the job done. “I think the idea of health services touches everybody,” she said. “Everybody has a doctor or has someone who has been sick. Helping to fund this project will ensure the next generation has the tools to learn and desire to become doctors and nurses. You can think of it as, by donating money you are funding the next group of surgeons and scientists.” Since the project started midMarch, the team has raised $1,100.

Stopping buses at rail crossing less safe: study City will install new gates to protect buses in Kanata, south Ottawa Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - New gates will be added at four suburban rail crossings but no other changes are needed to OC Transpo’s policies for traversing train tracks, according to a report. OC Transpo bus operators are not required to stop at rail crossings unless the signals are flashing to indicate a train is approaching, and engineers from consultant MMM Group have told the city it’s safest to keep that policy. The review was ordered by OC Transpo after a collision between an OC Transpo bus and a Via train on the morning of Sept. 18, 2013, that killed six people, including the bus driver. Based on 30-year-old research from the United States and a review of literature and policies of other municipalities, the report from MMM Group tells the city it could actually expect a 17.4 per cent

increase in collisions where trains hit OC Transpo buses if the city required buses to stop at all rail crossings. “Intuitively, many people think that requiring buses to stop at inactive crossings equipped with active protection would offer some safety advantage,” said Geoffrey Millen of MMM Group. “The reality, however, is that there does not appear to be any quantitative evidence indicating that stopping transit buses at these crossings improves road safety performance. Quite to the contrary – the literature indicates that stopping these buses at appropriately equipped crossings will likely result in more collisions overall.” Requiring buses to stop at rail crossings could also increase vehicle-vehicle collisions, Millen said, especially rear-end crashes. Vehicle-vehicle collisions are already five times more likely near rail crossings, Millen said. Millen’s review found that

municipalities across Canada are split on whether to always require buses to stop at protected crossings. Among major cities, Toronto and Montreal require buses to stop. It’s also part of Quebec’s provincial traffic laws. The report was set to be considered at the April 16 transit commission meeting and includes a recommendation that OC Transpo buses only use fully signalled rail crossings. As a result, OC Transpo will spend between $200,000 and $400,000 to add gates to four crossings that currently have only lights, but no gates: Herzberg and March roads in Kanata, and Lester and McCarthy roads in the south end. In Carp, the city is looking at potentially re-routing the once-weekly shopping bus, Route 203, to avoid the two unsignalized rail crossings on Carp and Donald B. Munro roads. Currently, OC Transpo policy requires drivers to stop at those crossings and open the bus door to listen for oncoming trains. Millen’s main recommendation rests on research undertaken by the U.S. Federal Highway Administration in 1985.

Developers could be tapped to build city parks Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city is looking at getting out of the business of building new suburban parks and instead letting developers do the work. That’s a proposal being looked at as part of an internal review of the city’s development charges bylaw. Developers already pay for the parks to be built – it’s part of the charge for development, which covers the construction of new infrastructure and facilities needed to support the larger population when a new development goes in. Now the city is questioning whether it makes more sense to let builders take the lead in planning and constructing parks in a schedule that better suits their plans for building new communities, mainly in the suburbs.

“Should the city continue to collect development charges for parks, or should the developers just build the parks themselves?” said John Moser, the city’s general manager of planning and growth management. “There has been a lot of interest from the development community to do that.” Pierre Dufresne, president of the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association and vice president with Tartan Homes, agreed. He said the change would mean parks could be built sooner. “When a home purchaser moves into a subdivision even in its earlier stages, the park will already be complete,” he said. “It creates a complete community to have it upfront.” Shifting that responsibility to developers is something Moser and his staff are considering proposing to the

City planners are might recommend that the city stop building its own parks in the suburbs and instead let developers do the work themselves. city’s planning committee and council next month. While it’s just one part of a larger review of how the city collects fees to cover the cost of expanding services to accommodate development, it would be the most significant shift, Moser

said. “If that comes to fruition, it would be a big change in the bylaw,” he said. Since the planning and construction of new parks in the urban core works differently than a master-planned new suburb, planning staff are considering keeping a fee for parks in the development charge for downtown construction. The city has to wait until it collects enough money from development charges as different phases of homes in a

new suburban community are built, so the park often isn’t put in until residents have been living there for some time. Letting the developers do it would give them the flexibility to put in a park before residents move in, which is something builders prefer to do because it’s a good selling feature, Moser said. Many builders ask the city for “front-ending agreements” to hand over more of the money the developer will eventually owe to the city upfront so the park can be built sooner. “I think there is almost an expectation now as more (developers) do that, that the parks will be ready,” Moser said. But that will also mean the city wouldn’t know which new parks were going to be built each year. Right now, there is a list of upcoming park projects, but that responsibility could be shifted over to the development industry if the changes are recommended and approved. Dufresne said there has also been discussion about putting a deadline in the developers’ community planning documents approved by

the city to ensure the parks are completed in a timely manner – similar to what’s done now for sidewalks and utilities. The shift wouldn’t necessarily mean layoffs or a reduced need for city parks planners, Moser said. Those staffers would still be needed, but their work would be done at the beginning of the process when developers work with the city to put together a master plan for their communities. “We would be involved as it evolves through the design, working with the industry,” Moser said. “Whatever is built has to be built to city standards. “We would see the same quality of parks. They’ll just be built on a more timely basis,” Moser said. “I think the only thing that will change is: ‘Gee, it’s done.’ It’s quicker.” Dufresne said the developers might be able to find more efficient ways to build parks. “There might be some more flexibility with the things we’d put into the park,” he said. “We don’t have the same rules of engagement as the city.” A background study on the revisions to the development charges bylaw will be posted on ottawa.ca a few weeks before it will be considered at a May planning committee meeting.

Legacy gift to CHEO generates $4.6 million As CHEO gets ready to celebrate its 40th anniversary this year, it is natural to reflect back to the early days of the hospital. It was a dream that was built on sheer will and determination by a community that was committed to providing the best health care for its children and youth. During the late 1960’s and early 70’s, physicians, elected officials, parents and the community at large joined forces to establish a special and distinct hospital to serve the children and youth of eastern Ontario and western Quebec. This group raised $4 million from the community which was a formidable sum for the times.

When Mr. Cochrane died in 1985 the CHEO Foundation received $540,000 from his estate. The Foundation established the Weldon Cochrane Endowment Fund with his gift as directed in his Will. Much has happened and changed at CHEO in the nearly 30 years since Mr. Cochrane’s death, and in that time his legacy gift has generated $4.6 million in interest which has benefited generations of patients and families at CHEO. In 25 years from now based on a conservative interest rate of 6% The Cochrane Endowment Fund will be valued at $19,742,605; in 50 years it will be $84,732,710 and in 100 years it will have reached $1,560,789,584.

THE IMPACT OF MR. COCHRANE’S GENEROUS GIFT IS PROBABLY BEYOND WHAT HE COULD HAVE EVEN IMAGINED WHEN HE MADE IT OVER 30 YEARS AGO. HIS LEGACY LIVES ON AND CONTINUES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF YOUNG PATIENTS AT CHEO TODAY, AND FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. In 1980, when the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) was only just 11 years old, Weldon Cochrane, an Ottawa chartered accountant and partner with the accounting firm of Coopers and Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouseCoopers) was also the Treasurer on the CHEO Foundation Board. Mr. Cochrane had an appreciation for the importance of leaving a legacy and understood how to make an impact. With that in mind, he made a gift in his Will to CHEO leaving the residual of his estate with instructions for it to be endowed; meaning that the capital would be preserved in perpetuity and the annual interest would be used to fund the important work at CHEO. He was predeceased by his wife, Adrienne Cochrane and his only child, Delma Grace Cochrane.

With these funds CHEO will be able to continue to purchase state of the art equipment, fund lifesaving research while continuing to provide the best in pediatric care for the children and youth of our community. His legacy lives on at CHEO every day through the children and families that benefit from his generous and forward thinking.

As CHEO marks this major milestone, we look back and honor those in our community who made our local children’s hospital a reality and donors like Mr. Cochrane who made children a priority in their lives. Donors like him have helped to ensure that CHEO will be here forever. Why not honour what is most important to you during your lifetime by considering a gift in Will to CHEO. Our children, youth and families deserve to always have excellent health care, to benefit from lifesaving research and be provided with the support programs to live happy and healthy lives now and forever.

WHAT IS FOREVER CHEO? Forever CHEO is a way to ensure that CHEO will always be here to provide excellent care, lifesaving research and invaluable support to children and their families every day by making a gift from your estate. When you leave a gift in your Will to CHEO you have the option of designating it to address immediate needs within the Hospital, the Research Institute or the Forever CHEO Endowment Fund. This fund will preserve the full amount of your gift and disperse the interest to CHEO annually. Since the fund will live on in perpetuity, so will your gift to future generations of children at CHEO. This is a way to leave a permanent and meaningful mark on your community.

this course will give you the know-how for choosing equipment, avoiding problems, and dealing with situations that may arise on the trail,â&#x20AC;? Ruth Oswald, one of the instructors, said. There are three clubs that maintain the 387-kilometre Rideau Trail that runs from Kingston to Parliament Hill. On the way to the capital, it passes through Merrickville and Smiths Falls. Ethel Archard, who handles the Ottawa clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s communications, said the three clubs

boast 800 members â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with about half coming from the Ottawa area. She said maintenance to the trail can include clearing away trash, or brush and making sure all the routes are as safe as possible. In some cases it will include the installation of boardwalks to make trails easier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things like that would often be done in partnership with conservation authorities or the NCC (National Capital Commission),â&#x20AC;? Archard said. The association hosts group hikes and other events

throughout the year. Annual membership is $25 for an individual and $40 for a household. Archard said there are a variety of different trails depends on the hikerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The terrains vary quite a bit along the trail,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding Ottawans could either go for a leisurely walk through the woods or a tramp through challenging terrain. The May 3 introductory course is $75, but includes a one-year membership to the Rideau Trail Association.

Back to court for Lowertown heritage school battle Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Legal wrangling over a rundown Lowertown heritage school thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become the poster child for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crackdown on derelict buildings is sending the city and its owner back to court. The city has resumed legal action against Groupe Claude Lauzon, the owner of the Our Lady School on Cumberland Street, for failing to follow through on a legal agreement to protect the building, said built heritage subcommittee chairwoman Jan Harder, the councillor for Barrhaven Ward. There is now a concern that the 110-year-old building has suffered more damage, she said. Harder had harsh words for Lauzon on April 10: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not tolerable. The city will not stand by to watch heritage buildings being destroyed by neglect and inaction.â&#x20AC;? In addition to reviving the court action against Groupe

ing, the two parties agreed on a strategy that would preserve parts of the building and court proceedings were paused. The city had also agreed to waive the annual fee of $47,000 that was supposed to be charged to Groupe Claude Lauzon for encroaching on the road. Bracing and boards blocking off the site extend into the street to ensure safety for passersby. The south and west walls of the former school are supposed to be saved as part of that agreement. John Cooke, an engineer working on behalf of Lauzon, told the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built heritage committee last October that concerns that Lauzon was not committed to the work were unfounded because the company had agreed to pour $700,000 into retaining those facades. Groupe Claude Lauzon owns a number of unused properties, mainly in Lowertown, Vanier and New Edinburgh. Heritage Ottawa president Leslie Maitland commented that she was happy to see the city take action, but wondered why the Lauzonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business strategy was to let its buildings fall into ruin.

Claude Lauzon, Harder said the mayor has directed the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer to take â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatever action is necessaryâ&#x20AC;? to ensure the building is stabilized and repaired before next winter. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief building official is visiting the site to see whether any more orders need to be issued and whether the structure must be re-assessed by a heritage engineer. Staff in Groupe Claude Lauzonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office said Claude Lauzon, who oversees the company, was away for two weeks. No one else at the company was available for comment. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the latest gauntlet thrown down in the lengthy legal battle between the company and the city. It began in February of 2013, when Lauzon asked the city for permission to demolish the school based on a report the company commissioned. The city asked Lauzon to meet several conditions, including providing an assessment from a professional heritage engineer on what portions of the structure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if any â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could be saved. In response, the owner launched court applications against the city. After some back-and-forth legal bicker-

Ordinary soldiers’ artworks are on the front line of a new display at the Canadian War Museum NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Arts - The Canadian War Museum is offering a view of the First World War right from the trenches, as interpreted by professional artists and soldiers who raised a paint brush or pen in addition to a rifle.

The 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War is this June, and Canada’s national museums will commemorate four grim years of combat – in Europe and on the home front – through 2019. The first two exhibitions dealing with what was then called the Great War opened on April 10 at the

war museum. The most personal works are those created by soldiers who decided to paint or draw what they saw. They are now part of one of the two concurrent exhibitions, titled Witness – Canadian Art of the First World War. The sketches and drawings made in the trenches or in prisoner-of-war camps – some not much larger than postcards – stand in stark contrast to massive paintings commissioned by the Canadian War Memorials Fund. Some of the works by those in uniform were never intended for display in a museum but were created for family back home or comrades.

None of the art created by ordinary soldiers has ever been publicly displayed before. In all, 54 artworks are presented in four different thematic sections in Witness, including pieces by three artists who would later become part of the Group of Seven: A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer and Frederick Varley. TRANSFORMATION “The war transformed Canada and you can witness that transformation as it happened,” said war art historian Laura Brandon during an April 9 preview of the exhibition. Brandon introduced the daughter of one soldier-artist during the launch. Marjorie Gould’s father, Ross Wiggs, served in the Canadian artillery with the McGill Bat-

tery and created colour drawings of what he saw during the war. “It’s a real honour for him and for me,” Gould said of his part in the Witness exhibition: a cheerful image of a Canadian soldier, entitled Tommy. Gould also carries with her two small books of drawings her father brought home and it seems a small miracle they survived time near the front lines and then the long trip back to Canada. “There’s a whole series (of drawings of soldiers), from private to general,” Gould said of the neatly bound books. The works of Wiggs and the other artists will be seen by thousands of Canadians as Witness goes on a cross-Canada tour after September. See page 21

CANADIAN WAR MUSEUM/SUBMITTED

Soldier-artist John Humphries’ untitled watercolour depicts a soldier on horseback and an ambulance, making their way down a wet road at sunset. In 1919, Humphries was stationed near the town of SaintGérard, Belgium. The house in which he was billeted at the time became ‘a shrine to Canadians’ after he painted pictures directly on the walls. Continued from page 20

The second exhibition at the war museum is entitled Transformations, and runs concurrently with Witness. It includes paintings from two very different perspectives: the Allied and German sides during the First World War. Canadian artist A.Y. Jackson was a professional painter prior to enlisting in the 60th Battalion in 1915. He fought and was injured, and was appointed as an official war artist in 1917. German artist Otto Dix joined up in 1914, serving in the German

army at the Battle of the Somme. While Jackson avoided the depiction of battle, Dix didn’t shy away from incorporating corpses in what has been described as Apocalyptic art. In a few cases, the paths of Jackson and Dix crossed, and there are artworks of locations when they were held by the opposing sides during the war. The Dix works on display include a number on loan from the national gallery in Berlin. Witness and Transformations will be on display at the Canadian War Museum until Sept. 21. They

require regular admission to the museum. Many upcoming exhibitions at the war museum and the National Gallery of Canada will share the years of the First World War with Canadians. The gallery will host The Great War: The Persuasive Power of Photography from June 27 to Nov. 16. The war museum will bring in temporary exhibits during the coming five years and will add to its permanent collection with The Home Front, which opens in September. Schedules can be found at warmuseum.ca.

Otto Dix, Zerfallender Kampfgraben (Trench in Ruins), 1924. In this print, German artist Otto Dix depicts a First World War trench in the aftermath of violent shelling. In the dark, crumbling ground, bodies and skeletons merge with the earth. In the distance, Dix uses light, a traditional symbol of hope, to expose an endless field of shell holes.

Spring has finally sprung on the Farm Activities ready to begin at Canada Agriculture and Food Museum Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - After a winter than many feared would never end, warmer temperatures have finally made their way to Ottawa, and telltale signs of spring abound. The staff of the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum are well aware (and appreciative) of spring’s arrival, and are currently getting the Experimental Farm grounds and new programming ready for visitors. “Winter has been challenging, but we’ve got lots of things going on for Easter,” said director general Kerry-Leigh Burchill, adding they’ve had newborn livestock appearing on an almost daily basis. While the museum plans to offer tried-and-true programming this spring, including ac-

tivities (including an egg hunt) for the Easter long weekend, and Mother’s Day on the Farm, a new exhibition is in the works for next month. Titled Food Preservation: The Science You Eat, the exhibit -- opening May 13 -- will take visitors on an educational journey behind how their food stays fresh. Many people don’t like to think about the preservation practices that keep food fresher, longer, which is why the museum wanted to delve into the science behind it. “We want to take the fear factor out of food,” said Burchill. “(The exhibit) will be looking at traditional methods of preservation – like pickling, jams and jellies – as well as newer processes like high-pressure pasteurization and irradiation.” Preservation, said Burchill,

is a big part of food literacy, despite food production getting most of the limelight. The museum’s mandate is to explore all aspects of the food system, including food security. Last year’s opening of the museum’s new learning centre allowed for expanded programming, with workshop space and kitchens along with space for exhibits. The food preservation exhibit will be on display for five years, with activities and programming updates to keep the exhibit fresh, so to speak. As spring progresses, farm visitors can look forward to taking part in the annual Sheep Shearing Festival (May 17-19), as well as Father’s Day on the Farm (June 15). The museum’s annual Baskets with Panache fundraiser will take place on June 18, where money is raised to bring underprivileged children to the farm for a fun and authentic rustic learning experience. More information on the museum can be found at cafmuseum.techno-science.ca.

Overbrook to talk environment at next public board meeting Presentation from Climate Realty Project Canada planned Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - The Overbrook Community Association will host a special environmentally-friendly meeting this month. As part of the effort the association has made to host monthly meetings with themes and topical subjects, on April 24, local resident and speaker for the Climate Realty Project Canada, Gaye Taylor, will give a presentation about global environmental realities and what residents can do at the neighbourhood level to address them.

The event will feature a presentation from Taylor who will discuss climate science and the potential causes and impacts of climate change. According to its website, Climate Reality Canada would like to raise awareness among all Canadians about the urgency of the climate crisis and hopes to motivate Canadians to become active participants in solving the climate crisis by following three steps: • Train citizens from numerous geographic regions who can then communicate to the public about the urgency and impact of climate change. • Engage the public through pre-

sentations, such as the one Taylor will perform in Overbrook, so that Canadians can make informed choices about public policy matters related to climate change. • Promote personal, local, domestic and international initiatives to solve the climate crisis. The presentation by Taylor, who is also a University of Ottawa professor, will be around one hour long and will feature a question and answer period. Everyone is welcome to come to the meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. at the Overbrook Community Centre, 33 Quill St. Additional information about the presentation or the association is available by sending an email to info@overbrook.ca.

Centres need to be used more, residents say Continued from page 1

BELMONTE UPHOLSTERING

But if Deans has her way, the closure won’t last long – she is working with the police to move the centre into an Ottawa Community Housing building in her ward’s Heatherington neighbourhood, at 1455 Heatherington Rd. “I just think there is some value in having that presence in that neighbourhood,” Deans said. The news that the police were planning to look at closing more centres came as an unpleasant surprise to the councillor. “It surprises me a little bit,”

Deans said. “It’s not intuitive to me that they wouldn’t be valuable, but we’ll listen to what they have to say.” Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, whose community cherishes their two community police officers, was also caught off guard. “I was surprised by that announcement or news,” said Fleury, who was concerned and called police Chief Charles Bordeleau. Fleury said he was assured the role of the community police officers is not being reconsidered – just the need for physical centres.Cameron said the centres have been getting less and less drop-in traffic over the years as times change and a lot of reporting functions and information are now available online. “I don’t think people feel there is a need for it,” Cameron said, referring to the bricks-andmortar centres. The centres cost around $180,000 to operate annually, Cameron said. If a space is still needed, Cameron said the police could look at co-locating with other services like the community health centres. In Manotick, the community police centre was moved to the

local firehall last year because the office space it was renting became too expensive. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes said the move was not out of character because police have long been setting community police centres up for failure. “In my opinion they have never really believed in these community police centres,” she said. “There really has never been an interest in community-based policing.” While other police services like Edmonton’s make an effort to involve community members in their work, including having volunteers help take reports on things like stolen bicycles, Ottawa’s police service has been reticent to give civilians access to things like their computer system, Holmes said. A review of how community policing is conducted is a good idea, Holmes said, but instead of focusing on closing centres, it should look at how to best provide that service. “Redesign the rationale for those police. How can they help the community? How can they get more volunteers in?” Holmes said. In her ward, the move to “bury” the local centre in a second-floor office at city hall “isn’t

helpful,” Holmes said. “I can’t imagine people could find it,” she said. “They need to be at-grade, in a community. The police service doesn’t want to pay that rent, even though they have one of the biggest budgets in the city.” Vanier residents discussed the news of Community Police Centres closing at the Vanier Community Association meeting on April 8. Though the idea of closing the centres was not welcome by residents, some felt the current set-up is not working as well as it could be. Some association members said the business hours at the centre are unclear and simply dropping by the centre is not always the best action. “I think we need to put those centre to better use,” said board member Rose Anne Leonard. “There needs to be more activities, have them open for the community to use them.” Leonard said the most important thing to a community is the officer, and the work between residents and the officer, and that should be the major goal. We want community engagement to make our neighbourhood better, that is what it s about, we shouldn t be trapped into just talking about a building, Leonard said. R0012632730

Baker was happy to be a part of the inaugural history day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a fascinating event,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there should be a lot more of this kind of thing. The guest speakers played a big part in making the successful event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The opening video greeting from Chris HadďŹ eld had a huge impact on the day itself and students,â&#x20AC;? said Kristin Riddell, VicePrincipal of Sir Robert Borden High School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The interactions for students among our teachers, judges and special guests like Jowi Taylor, Rob Baker and Jim Watson was a wonderful experience.â&#x20AC;? Organizers are already looking ahead to next year, hoping to build off a strong debut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fantastic, it really exceeded our expectations,â&#x20AC;? said Alison Peters, registrar and one of the organizers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really looking forward to next year already.â&#x20AC;?

News - Typically when Rob Baker is in front of an audience heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slashing at his guitar to on a stage in a hockey rink. The Tragically Hip guitarist traded his instrument and the show to take part in Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut National Capital History Day on April 4 at the Confederation Education Centre as the keynote speaker. He also took part in a Q and A session, answering studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally I ďŹ nd it terrifying doing public speaking,â&#x20AC;? said Baker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get out of my comfort zone and give it a shot.â&#x20AC;? The event is based on the similar National History Day started in the United States in 1974 as a way to celebrate the past and educate students. Endorsed by both the Ottawa public and Catholic school boards, students from high schools around Ottawa showcased their history projects recognizing events of signiďŹ cance.

After giving his speech, Baker took part in a question-and-answer session with students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having to lecture or give a speech is not my thing,â&#x20AC;? said Baker, with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the Q and A; you get to talk to people so I enjoy that.â&#x20AC;? The theme of the event was Turning Points in History: People, Ideas and Events. The Tragically Hip have been incorporating Canadian history in their music since their inception. The band are themselves a big part of Canadian music history with 14 Juno Awards to their name. Songs like Nautical Disaster, Fifty Mission Cap and Wheat Kings were inspired by Canada in the second World War, the Toronto Maple Leafs and life in Western Canada respectively. The group values the importance of understanding history, teaching through their music. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous guitar, Voyageur, was at the event with Baker getting a chance to add his name to an impressive list of

Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on March 26, 2014 established its intention to designate 478 Albert Street under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value. Description of Property The building at 478 Albert Street is a three storey residence with a high basement that is located on the south side of Albert Street, to the west of the intersection of Bronson Avenue and Albert Street. Statement of Cultural Heritage Value or Interest The house at 478 Albert Street is significant for its design value as an excellent example of the Second Empire style, historical value for its association with Thomas Seaton Scott and contextual value as part of a cluster of historic nineteenth century buildings on Albert Street.

Veritaaq IT Solutions Jean Genier Sylvie Bigras

The building at 478 Albert Street was constructed circa 1874, in the Second Empire style, which was popular in Canada between 1860 and 1900. The architectural features of the building which are characteristic of the ornate Second Empire style include its mansard roof, ornate entrance, prominent second storey elliptical porch, distinct triangular bay windows and intricate dichromatic brick work.

Mike Kenney Brian Radburn, CA

The building at 478 Albert Street was designed for and likely by, Thomas Seaton Scott, the first Chief Architect of the Department of Public Works. Scott was a well known Canadian architect whose work in Ottawa included the 1874 design for the west block of Parliament and the Drill Hall at Cartier Square. Later residents of the building included noted Canadian author William Dawson LeSueur, the Victorian Order of Nurses and the Sisters of Service. The building is associated with the former Ashburnham Hill neighbourhood in the west end of Uppertown. Ashburnham Hill was an early residential neighbourhood which was settled by members of Ottawa’s English-speaking elite from the mid- to late-nineteenth century.

We also wish to recognize the following extraordinary employees for their dedicated years of service to The Snowsuit Fund and the people we serve. Heather Munro 5 Years of service Christina Miller 10 Years of service Joanne Andrews 20 Years of service Roger Rivard Lifetime Volunteer Award

This building is one of four remaining nineteenth century buildings located on the south side of Albert Street that has preserved its original low–scale residential character. The cluster of historic buildings on Albert Street stands out amongst the surrounding high-rise apartments and offices. The house at 478 Albert Street is significant for its contribution to the historic residential character. OBJECTIONS Any person wishing to object to this designation may do so by letter, outlining the reasons for the objection and any other relevant information. This letter must be received by the Clerk of the City of Ottawa either by registered mail or personally delivered within 30 days of the publication of this notice. When a notice of objection has been received, the Council of the City of Ottawa will refer the matter to the Conservation Review Board for a hearing and a report.

Penton is not new to running markets, having managed the Little Italy market in the past. The season will open on July 5 and run until mid October. Plans are still in the works, but goal for the market aims to be more than just about selling food: there will be live music and family-fun activities, including a bouncy castle for children, Penton said.

Ottawa students make socks, money Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Community - The theories that attempt to explain how a pair of socks can enter a washer or dryer and come out minus one are numerous and wild. While some propose a wormhole or and alternate dimension is the reason for their lost sock, others claim their washer or dryer is indeed sentient and feeding on their clothes. But no matter how complicated the theories get, the solution is simple says a group

of entrepreneurs from Earl of March Secondary School: socks with snaps. That’s the idea that has netted this student start up over $1,000 in sales mid-February. The company, named Enssemble, is currently leading in a competition with three other Ottawa school-based companies – one at Glebe Collegiate (Band.It), another at John McCrae (#Qualitee) and the third at De La Salle (Creaculte). While Band.It’s headbands, #Qualitee’s custom hashtag T-shirts and Creacutle’s plant pots are having success of their own, it’s the socks that

are taking a step ahead of the others. Diyang Lu, who spearheaded the entrepreneurship club at Earl of March, explained how he and a group of 24 students came up with socks with snaps. After brainstorming a laundry list of product ideas, the company narrowed it down to three possibilities: light switch covers, customizable iPhone cases and the socks. It was a combination of cost efficiency and aiming at a lucrative target market that narrowed the list down, said Diyang. “For the iPhone case, it was a very

narrow target market and there wasn’t very much room for expansion and there was a lot of competitors already,” he said. Also, they weren’t able to keep the iPhone’s sleek, stylish design with their homemade case. As for the light switches, there are just too many different styles of switch to try and accommodate. “Whereas the sock idea, we could have different sizes, women’s, men’s, and the thing is a snap is a simple idea. It is easy to use, easy to make and people can see the point to it,’ said Diyang.

After testing their design in both washers and dryers to make sure a small metal snap on a pair of socks was enough to foil a hungry washer or the alternate dimension contained therein, the group went into production. “Our first sale came mid-February,” said Diyang, at a parent auction night at Earl of March. Though the company projected to only sell 10 pairs on their first try, twice as many ended up being sold. Now the company has sold their product at Carlingwood Mall, Costco and Place D’Orléans. Along the way, they have refined their product pitch, catching people’s attention by pointing out they are a student run business learning entrepreneurship.

Ronny has solution for panic over loose tooth MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories bed, and by that time had woken the entire household who still had not gotten up. Mother looked in my mouth and lifted her hand as if she was about to perform surgery, and I clamped my mouth shut tight, still screaming at the top of my lungs. Ronny came downstairs into the kitchen, immediately knew what all the fuss was about, and announced that he was completely capable of getting rid of the tooth, and I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel a thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get rid of Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all the time,â&#x20AC;? he said. Terry, still groggy, and too young to know what was going on, curled up on the creton couch by the Findlay Oval and promptly fell back to sleep. Ronny went to the cupboard, got out the ball of

string, and ripped off a good portion and said he would make a loop over the tooth, I would sit on a chair, and he would walk slowly to the back door, hanging on to the other end of the string, and the tooth would be gone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel a thing,â&#x20AC;? he said. Well, the last time Ronny experimented with me and one of his high fallootinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ideas, I ďŹ&#x201A;ew off the shed roof holding an open umbrella and had a splint on my leg for two weeks. Mother was working away at making breakfast for Father and the brothers, who would soon be coming in from the morning chores, and she was paying absolutely no attention to Ronny or me and the seriousness of what was going on around her. I was still crying, with my

mouth clamped tight as if my lips had been glued with mucilage. I could wobble the tooth with my tongue, and as far as I was concerned, I was ready to be taken in to old Dr. Murphy. Forget going to the dentist. I remembered the one and only time any of us ever went to a real dentist, it cost $3, and my sister Audrey who was the victim, said he nearly killed her. I knew being driven almost 20 kilometres into Renfrew to have a wobbly tooth removed by Dr. Murphy was out of the question, and I ďŹ nally agreed to let Ronny look in my mouth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel a thing,â&#x20AC;? Ronny said, as he neared my chair with the ball of string. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For goodness sake, Mary, the tooth is just hanging there. Let Ronny do what he has to do so I can get the breakfast on the table. This commotion over a baby tooth is ridiculous,â&#x20AC;? Mother said as she banged the porridge pot on the Findlay Oval, stirring with a wooden spoon. Making the most of the situation, and adding as

much drama as he could muster, Ronny said he would go as far away as the parlour door to pull the string. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That way you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when I am going to do it.â&#x20AC;? As he neared my mouth, I told him I would put the string around the tooth, and he reluctantly handed me the ball made up of pieces we had retrieved from parcels bought at Briscoes General Store. All the time I was pressing my tongue against the offending tooth, and I could tell it had loosened considerably. And then just as Ronny headed for the parlour, unrolling the string as he went, I felt the tooth lying in the bottom of my mouth. No longer was it a loose tooth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was now a tooth that had come out on its own, with the help of my tongue. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the heart to tell Ronny it was all over. I had a good hold of the end of the string, and told Ronny I was ready. Ronny jerked the string like he was pulling turnips, and I let it fall to the ďŹ&#x201A;oor and had the presence of mind to drop the tooth at my feet.

I have adopted 2 cats who were starving themselves when they were separated from their family and each other. I ďŹ rst adopted Baudelaire, who did not eat for about 10 days before being reunited with his sister Hibou, who was just as skinny as him when she arrived at my home.

You probably have other teeth that are ready to come out too. Let me have a look.â&#x20AC;? Well, there was no way I was going to let Ronny pull a perfectly good tooth out of my mouth. No sireee. Mother saved the day by telling us if we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to the table at once for breakfast, she was clearing the kitchen, and we would all have to wait for dinner at noon for our next mouthful of food. Ronny took the tooth between his thumb and ďŹ nger, looked it over, and said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be a general any more. I think I will be a dentist!â&#x20AC;?

hy my cousins from Montreal were with us that time of year was beyond me. Ronny and Terry had come with Aunt Helen, who promptly went home on the train as soon as their clothes were unpacked. So it looked like they were going to be with us out on the farm for a while, long enough that Ronny would go off to the Northcote School, while Terry, the youngest, would stay home with Mother. Even though Ronny was a force to contend with, I loved it when the Lapointe cousins visited us on the farm. There was never a dull moment. That early Spring morning, a Saturday it was, I woke with a front tooth in the bottom of my mouth hanging by a thread. I could feel it with my tongue, and I ďŹ&#x201A;ed my bed like I was on my way to the gallows. Mother was already in the kitchen stirring porridge. I pointed to the tooth, vowed I was on my death

Earl Grey rhubarb tea cakes Lifestyle - These pretty tea cakes feature a sweet-tart rhubarb filling and creamy rhubarb glaze that is complemented by the Earl Grey tea flavour. Preparation time: 20 minutes. Standing time: 45 minutes. Cooking time: 40 minutes. Serves 12. INGREDIENTS

Rhubarb Filling and Glaze â&#x20AC;˘ 625 ml (2-1/2 cups) chopped rhubarb â&#x20AC;˘ 50 ml (1/4 cup) granulated sugar â&#x20AC;˘ 150 ml (2/3 cup) icing sugar â&#x20AC;˘ 50 ml (1/4 cup) cream cheese, softened â&#x20AC;˘ 10 ml (2 tsp) milk (approx)

Rhubarb filling: In a medium saucepan, bring the rhubarb and granulated sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until it has thickened and the rhubarb breaks down, stirring occasionally. Let it cool. (Make ahead: store in an airtight container for up to one day or freeze for up to two weeks.) Cakes: Grease and flour a 12-cup, non-stick muffin pan and set it aside. Open the tea bags and pour the leaves into small bowl. Pour boiling water over the leaves and let stand for five minutes. Strain the leaves, reserving half. Add the milk to the tea and set aside. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light and fluffy, then beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in the vanilla and the reserved tea leaves. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir this into the butter mixture alternately with the tea mixture, making three additions of dry ingredients and two of wet.

Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin cups. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for about 20 minutes or until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool in a pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Run knife around edges and remove the cakes from the pan. Place the cakes upside down on rack and let cool. (Make ahead: store cakes in an airtight container for up to one day or freeze for up to two weeks.)

Add the icing sugar and cream cheese and puree until smooth, adding milk, 5 ml (1 tsp) at a time, until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pourable. Trim the tops of the cakes to sit flat. Cut each cake in half. Spread the cut side of the bottom with 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the rhubarb filling. Place remaining half, cut side down, on top. Place cakes upside down on plates. Pour glaze over top of each cake, letting excess drip down sides. Let stand for 30 minutes for glaze to set.

Major Improvements to Montreal and Shefford Roads Intersection

April 24 Early bird tennis registration for the Glen Cairn Tennis club will take place on April 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Kanata Sports Club. Discounted memberships available for a limited time. We have social events, tournaments, as well as popular summer camps for kids. Club officially opens on May 1. Learn more about our club at glencairntennis.ca.

In my December 2013 Newsletter, you may recall an article on what I see as a critical failing intersection at Shefford and Montreal Roads. I was successful in incorporating over $800,000 for improvements into the 2014 Budget. The changes will eliminate drivers heading up the Shefford hill, waiting through 2-3 traffic light rotations, backing up traffic and cutting others off in the intersection.We have also relocated all soccer parking from Shefford to the Canotek Park.

I am pleased to report that the Montreal and Shefford Road intersection improvements are being undertaken to improve traffic operations (particularly Southbound left turns) through the intersection.

The modifications will include: •Addition of one Eastbound traffic lane (South side) on Montreal Road between Sinclair Street and Shefford Road plus development of an adjacent raised (Eastbound) cycle track. •Development of a third southbound lane providing for two dedicated left turn lanes and one through/right turn lane. •Placement of a multi-use pathway on Shefford Road between Montreal Road and the entrance to the retirement home entrance. The extension of this pathway beyond to the Ottawa River Pathway is proposed as a separate project. •Traffic signal timing and signage will be revised to better accommodate the above changes.
