Inside A bunch of good guys host New NEWS Edinburh cleanup Teamwork ‘a must’ for May 3 event Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - New Edinburgh Park is about to become sparkling clean this weekend thanks to a group of good guys. The Good Guys Tri, an Ottawa running group, will host the park cleanup on May 3 at 9 a.m., and the group’s ambassadors Steve Mahood and Una Beaudry are leading the charge. “We do a lot of fundraisers for Good Guys, but we wanted to turn our focus on environmental needs as well. There are some runners who run with a trash bag, who pick up garbage along their run, but we thought we could take that to the next level and get everyone together to stop and clean,” Beaudry said. The Carson Grove couple have run consistently every day since January 2011 – a total of 1,209 runs when interviewed – but said they plan to

slow down their runners’ pace for the clean-up. “We might run to the park, but I see it as a mass group working together as a team to get the park clean,” Mahood said. Although it is not necessarily their community park, the two run through the area nearly every day and felt it was the perfect place to hold the cleanup. The two joined the Good Guys team a little more than a year ago and have taken the group’s challenge of “do good in this world” to heart. It sounds cliché, but really, it’s just such an amazing group of guys,” Mahood said. “I used to be a grumpy old man before I met them but they were so contagious and so passionate it just makes you want to help.” Laughing, Beaudry agreed. “It’s true, he was. But it’s also true, it is such an amazing group,” she said. Mahood and Beaudry join as many fundraising runs as possible, they say, with the purpose of doing good. See KARAOKE, page 9

News - Two curved towers attached by Ottawa’s highest pedestrian walkway could be coming to Metcalfe Street. Mastercraft Starwood, developer of the “Soho” condo

buildings, is proposing the first “landmark” building since the creation of a policy allowing buildings up to 27 storeys in Centretown. There are only three sites in the neighbourhood that could qualify for extra height in exchange for amped-up design

standards and a public park covering 40 per cent of the lot. MasterCraft Starwood’s 0.4hectare site at 267 O’Connor St. bounded by Gilmour and McLaren streets is one of them. Architect Gianni Ria from Page and Steele in Toronto has

designed two, 27-storey concave glass towers with a small, 750-square metre floorplate. The towers will rise in two phases: the first at the northeast corner of the site, which is currently a surface parking lot. The tower would sit atop a curved, three-storey podium that’s 1.5 metres wider than the tower. See PARK, page 21

Arts Court appeal quashed City can move ahead with $34-million redevelopment plan Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city’s ambitious Arts Court redevelopment can proceed after the Ontario Municipal Board overturned a challenge to the $34-million project. The board overturned an appeal to the development at 6070 Waller St. on the grounds that it was too tall and lacked enough parking or access to amenities. The appeal was filed by Graham Gleddie, who lives nearby. In the written decision, the OMB’s Richard Makuch wrote that a cross-examination of Gleddie during the appeal

only served to strengthen the city’s case. Gleddie and his supporters didn’t present any compelling evidence to make their case, other than personal anecdotes “typical of any downtown setting” about the lack of green space and parking and excessive building heights. Last August, city council approved the rezoning allowing a total height of 23 storeys, which included 17 storeys for residential, hotel or office use above a complex including a new Ottawa Art Gallery, 225seat screening room, black box theatre and classrooms for the nearby University of Ottawa. No parking needed to be provided.

TheOntarioMunicipalBoard decision noted that Arts Court is within 600 metres of the future light-rail station at the Rideau Centre and the availability of parking at the mall and in the nearby ByWard Market. Makuch declared it was “entirely appropriate that parking be reduced/eliminated on this site to support the growth of rapid transit,” according to a summary of the decision sent by city clerk and solicitor, Rick O’Connor. Last fall, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he and some of the arts groups that will be tenants in the facility were concerned about the lack of parking. Since Arts Court is intended to be a citywide hub for everything from the Ottawa Art Gallery to dance and media arts, patrons will come from farther afield and will need places to park,

Fleury said in November. The board also sided with the city on the height of the tower, which is part of the plan to fund the project. Selling the rights to build a tower above the city’s land is expected to raise around $4.5 million. The board was satisfied that the height of the building is was in keeping with the city’s Official Plan policies guiding future development. A tall building has been anticipated for that site in the city’s planning policy documents for some time, the decision notes. Given the configuration of the site, which includes a number of low-rise buildings with a tower in the northeast corner, the board was satisfied there would be enough distance separating the tower from potential future tall buildings in the area. The appeal also listed con-

Centre and a number of tourist attractions. If everything goes to plan, the city expects to open the expanded Arts Court complex in 2017.

The small-scale fabrication facility features tools like a 3D scanner, 3D printers and a laser cutter available for the public to use. It’s an idea that’s taking off in the United States and the American government helped bring the concept here to Ottawa. Equipment in the space, which also includes video equipment, software and a green screen, was purchased by the U.S. Embassy. It’s part of the embassy’s American Corners program, which aims to make information about the States and its culture available in other countries. There are a

Fed up with proposals from developers seeking to build student housing in Sandy Hill, Action Sandy Hill’s Jane Gurr, right, is working with residents to host a community fundraiser in an effort to raise money to fight these proposals.

Sandy Hill hosts square dancing fundraiser Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - When it comes to holding community fundraisers Sandy Hill believes in putting on a boot-stomping good time. A group of Sandy Hill residents have organized Stepping out for Sandy Hill, a fundraiser event at the All Saints’ Church on May 10 starting at 7 p.m. The event is being organized in support of Action Sandy Hill’s planning committee. Action Sandy Hill said it aims to use the money raised by the event to fight appeals at the Ontario Municipal Board or to pay for any needed planning services to oppose development at city hall in the future. Board member Jane Gurr, who is helping organize the event said the money isn’t ear-marked for any specific cause at the moment, but any money raised can be used for various planning needs, including hiring a planner or just simply to have at the ready if the board challenges a city decision at the OMB. But ultimately, Gurr said, the event is meant to be a great way for the community to come together. “It is a party, it is a big community party,” Gurr said. “A lot of people in Sandy Hill have been working very hard in recent years as development pressures have increased and so this is chance for everyone to have a good time and enjoy themselves.” “Really, it’s a celebration of the community and the fact that the community is pulling together to maintain its vibrancy and diversity,” Gurr said. There will be finger foods at the fundraiser, including pulled pork, pigs in a blanket and deviled eggs, a cash bar, silent auction and raffle will all be a part of the evening plans. Free babysitting for children 12

and under also will be available, offering the children a macaroni and cheese dinner. The event will have a dance caller on hand, Catherine Burns, who will call out dance moves for Scottish reels, square dancing and other dances. Gurr said although the original purpose of the event was aimed at hiring lawyers and planners to review Sandy Hill-specific development proposals, the neighbourhood invites all Ottawans to the event. “You don’t have to live in Sandy Hill to come; anybody in the city can come,” Gurr said. Ticket are $50 for adults, or $35 for seniors/students or unemployed individuals and free for children under 12. Tickets can be purchased by either calling Gurr at 613-565-0901 or by visiting the Facebook page, Stepping out for Sandy Hill. SAVE SANDY HILL

The square-dancing event is not the only fundraiser that is currently underway in the community. Recently, in response to a student housing proposal at the corner of Laurier Avenue and Friel Street from Viner Development, a group of residents launched the door-to-door campaign, Save Sandy Hill. So far, the efforts have already raised more than $11,000 in the first few weeks. The group said it has enlisted the help of a financial planner to handle the money. Checks are payable to Action Sandy Hill, making a note in the memo to direct the money to ‘Save Sandy Hill.’ Chad Rollins, vice-president of the association said the ultimate goal would be to raise anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000 to be directed towards court costs or planning services.

Friends with benefits fundraiser looks to raise thousands Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - For Laura Hammond, there is nothing better than spending the evening with good friends. Diagnosed with depression when she was 20 years-old, Hammond says she has her ups and downs, but friends have always made the days seem better. Hammond met one of those friends, Jennie James, while they were both seeking treatment for depression, ten years ago at the Royal Mental Health Care and Research facility. The two immediately became quick friends. “Even though we were apart in age, we have so much in common, our stories were quite parallel,” Hammond said. Both had come home from Toronto to seek treatment. It was three years later that James, suffering again from depression, took her life. “When you lose somebody to suicide, it’s hard to understand and it makes you wonder what was it about that day that made her make this decision,” Hammond said. Hammond said she struggled with James’ decision for a long time, but three years ago she decided it was time to help make a difference and possibly save someone’s life. “I think what we know about suicide is that it is really difficult once people have decided. You can’t stop it but I also think the important thing is that we need reach out and get help. Even if it means to sit in the emergency room for hours to get help, do that.” Hammond wants to help make those services better by raising money for the Royal

and for the Jennie James Depression Research Fund with the Royal Ottawa, which was established by James’ father shortly after her death. The Friends with Benefits Ottawa will take place on May 2 at Lago Bar Grill View. “My favourite evening is hanging out with my friends so that is what we thought to do,” Hammond said. “What I love about this event is that it is so truly her. She always loved a good party. Jennie (James) was someone who drew you in and what’s been so beautiful about this event is that I have seen new friendships grow. It’s a positive way to feel her and talk about her.” There will be live music by Trouble Clef jazz band, a silent auction, delicious food and speeches. DJ Bryan X will spin requests later in the evening. “One of the goals with this event is to end the silence and stigma with suicide and depression,” she said. “It’s not just a matter of bucking up and snapping out of it. It’s like someone with diabetes, where it’s simply the matter to remember to take insulin. We need to be patient and we need to be kind.” Even though Hammond lives in Toronto now, she said she owes much of her success to the Ottawa’s most prominent mental health centre. “I credit the Royal with the life that I have today,” she said. Over the past two years, Hammond and other of James’ friends have raised more than $28,000 for the fund. This year the group would like to raise $22,000. All of the profits contribute directly to the Royal Ottawa

Walking the Talk According to the 2011 National Household Survey, 68% of Ottawa residents drive a vehicle to work. Every day, people use vehicles to get to work, school, run errands, visit friends, and to take children to recreational activities. Although vehicles can be a quick form of transportation, did you know that in urban areas, walking for a distance of 500 meters or less is usually faster than using the car – and it is free and good for you. Car-centered living robs us of the chance to include physical activity into our daily lives. Every year, each Canadian makes an average of 2,000 car trips of less than three kilometers. Imagine how much healthier we would be if these short trips were replaced with an active mode of transportation, such as walking or cycling! May is Physical Activity Month and throughout the month, Ottawa Public Health is challenging residents to get active every day. A simple way is to walk if you are headed somewhere

that is 2 km or less. A 2 km walk is equal to thirty minutes of physical activity. If you do this 5 times per week, you will meet the 150 minutes of activity recommended for adults Using active forms of transportation not only improves our health, it can also help reduce vehicle emissions which have negative environmental and health effects.

Please join us for the Ottawa Walking Day Celebration on Tuesday May 13, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. at Ottawa City Hall located at 110 Laurier Avenue West. Bicycle parking is always free! There will be opportunities for networking, to listen to motivational speakers and to participate in guided walks along the canal. Register today! OttawaWalkingDay.Eventbrite.ca or for more information call: 613-580-6744 ext. 23514.

Internet now a necessity

M

any of us have the Internet in our pocket; an instant connection to news, email and, during an emergency, information that can even save lives. For others, the Internet is a distant concept. And not just in Third World countries – here in Ottawa too. The cost of an Internet connection is more than some people can afford, despite the fact that highspeed connections are literally at their front door. Information is power, as well as a key element of a modern education. Without a decent connection to the worldwide web, people who are already behind the rest of Canadian society are destined to fall further behind. The children in homes without a fast connection are destined to fall behind their peers. It seems less likely they will get a chance to excel at school and beyond, which equals a massive waste of potential. A low-income advocacy group organized a march on April 17 to draw attention to the high cost of highspeed, a price tag that puts the Information Highway out of reach for many Canadians. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now is calling for high-speed Internet to be made available to Canadians for $10 a month. Given that the federal government regulates our telephone service, a more

affordable Internet is within reach if Parliament feels it is important. We pay taxes so that our libraries can share information with all residents. Why not a Canadian system to share the Internet with all Canadians? For this tech-savvy nation, it’s within our control to make it happen. The federal government has made rural high-speed Internet a priority, which is commendable. That doesn’t mean urban users – with high-speed connections available – should be forgotten. Internet access should be treated the same as basic phone service, with controlled rates so low-income families can get connected. Ottawa libraries provide Internet access – when they are open and if there is no lineup of other customers – but that’s not the same as having information on your kitchen table. Low-speed, dial-up connections are still available – with a phone line – but that’s not a good way to research material on today’s image-heavy websites. ACORN has the right idea. Every Canadian should have high-speed access. And if their current finances mean they can’t afford it, rates should be controlled. If Internet service providers won’t or can’t make the cost affordable, it’s up to all of us – through our federal government – to help offset costs so we’re all on an equal footing.

sually the subject of voter turnout emerges briefly after elections, when it is discovered that two out of five of us didn’t bother to go to the polls. There is a brief period of handwringing and then the political world reverts to its normal pattern of evasion, distortion and character assassination. Now thanks, if that is the word, to the Fair Elections Act, we are having the discussion at a time when it can do some good. It is a serious problem: according to the Canadian Press, just over 60 per cent of eligible voters turned out in 2011, and among voters under the age of 30 the turnout was less than 40 per cent. Provincial and municipal turnout figures are usually worse. There is no shortage of explanations. Some blame the nasty tone of our federal and provincial politics. Some blame the lack of issues of relevance to younger voters. And some blame the voting system itself. The argument goes that either it is too difficult to vote, or young voters just don’t care, or a combination of the two. The proposed solutions include asking the political parties to become more relevant. Godspeed on that one. On changes to the voting system, the one

The likelihood of being fined would bring young people out to the polls and, the argument goes, the likelihood of going to the polls would cause them to pay more attention to the issues. The counter-arguments are familiar. First, non-voters are usually non-interested and non-informed. Do we really want more people like that voting? Second, we live in a free society. For better or worse, one of our freedoms is the freedom not to vote. If we discard the compulsory option, the alternative most commonly proposed is online voting.

people are more likely to vote if they can do so online. The argument is made forcefully by comedian Rick Mercer in one of his CBC rants, quoted in the Huffington Post: “The government has a responsibility to make voting available wherever Canadians live. And yes, all Canadians reside in a riding but young Canadians, they live online. If we let them pay taxes there, let them vote there.� A couple of counter-arguments can be made. One comes from Ottawa Coun. Rick Chiarelli, quoted by CFRA, who used the example of the Heartbleed bug to point up the possible lack of security of online voting. “It’s always open to failure because the battle between security and hacking is a seesaw battle and it goes on like that,� Chiarelli said, and it is hard not to agree. The amount of attempted tampering in the last election indicates that any online voting system adopted will become a target, by those attempting to bias the result or perhaps just mess things up for fun. Even if online voting could be guaranteed to be secure, there would be still be reservations. It could be argued that putting voting online trivializes it, by putting it in the same

category as downloading a song. It should be thought of as a more serious matter than that. One way of observing that seriousness is to rise from your chair, put your shoes on and go out the door. Voting may or may not be a duty, but it is certainly a privilege. Polling places are almost always within walking distance. Many people are allowed time off from work to vote. Rides to and from are available. To treat the act of voting as some kind of hardship is a distortion of reality. If it’s a hardship to vote, millions of people around the world would like some.

A living will removes future headaches for families

T

he other day, some friends in the neighbourhood, now in their mid-sixties, informed us they would be putting their house up for sale. “Sorry to disappoint you,” she said. “But if we wait until we’re 70, we’ll be past our sell-by date.” It was a cute play on words. But it got me wondering about my own relatives in the same age group, who have never raised the issue of downsizing or moving to a more senior-friendly establishment. Our neighbours are in excellent health, to be sure. They are expecting their first grandchildren. They have a Florida condo and a cottage and their current house is lovely and centrally located. But they’re smart. They know that the stairs may at some point become a burden, along with the maintenance of their current freehold property – from roofing and plumbing repairs, to snow removal

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse and gardening. These are things they’ve chosen not to worry about as they age, thus the decision to sell while they are still able-bodied and able-minded enough to make decisions about where they want to live. I wish my own relatives could be so practical. But this is not an easy subject to broach with seniors. For one thing, no one likes to be told what to do. For another, few people like to think about the potential of becoming disabled,

less self-sufficient or widowed. The latter is most concerning In the last few years, I’ve known three elderly couples where one spouse had health or disability issues and the other acted in the role of caretaker. People tend to assume the one in poor health will pass away first, but in all three cases it was the caretaker who died. This left the family in a crisis situation.

Not only did they have to think about downsizing and relocating the widowed parent – but they also had to rapidly reorganize their lives to find a caregiver replacement. Conversations about aging in place, relocation and potential retirement residences need to be brought out of the shadows before they become necessary. As part of the sandwich generation, I’ve seen many families wait for a crisis to take action on senior relocation and downsizing. It leads to critical decisions made under stress, which not only limits their choices, but also has lead to decisions that they later came to regret when life settled back to a normal pace. How does one go about broaching the subject of seniors’ intentions? There’s no point acting forceful or overly opinionated, which may just get people’s backs up. But you can start by asking some of the big questions gently: Have you thought about

Karaoke fundraiser planned for next day Continued from page 1

“The main cause for Good Guys is raising money for research for children-based cancers,” Mahood said. Last year, Mahood participated in a 100-kilometre run to raise money and awareness for the cause. The run is teamled, and set at a pace everyone

can handle: a six-minute kilometre. This year Beaudry plans on taking on the challenge. “It’s a lot, but it also feels great,” Mahood said. “It can be painful, and it does hurt, but you have to push yourself.” Aside from cancer-research fundraisers, the group also

hands out warm clothes and food to the homeless in the winter and the day after the park cleanup, the couple is also hosting a karaoke fundraiser, GGT Karaoke FUNdraiser to End Kids Cancer, at Woody’s Pub from 7 to 10 p.m. This is the runners’ first fundraiser event and they both are excited.

There will be a silent auction and of course karaoke – something Mahood and Beaudry say is not their forte.

how long you’ll live in your current house? Is it still financially viable if you eventually have to outsource all maintenance? Over time, you may want to broaden the questions to get them thinking about life if one person in the couple becomes disabled or dies and how practical the house would be at that time. What if they can no longer drive or need help with meals? Are these things possible in their current location? What are their expectations of their relatives? Do they anticipate they will need their relatives to care for them or live with them? Or have they sourced other possibilities of care – home care or residential care – if they need it? Many people take the time early on to contemplate their lives after death by creating a will. It’s time to start taking the idea of a living will more seriously, ideally before anyone reaches their “sell-by dates.”

“It promises to be an interesting night,” Mahood said. Whether the two plan to slow down on their new found love for fundraising, they say that is not in the cards. “Really we are now a part of a big family, who are all such

great people,” Mahood said. “And you don’t have to be a runner to join, just want to do good.” To find out more about the park cleanup, volunteer or find out more about Good Guys Tri, visit goodguystri.ca.

Mayor’s Report GOOD NEWS FOR OTTAWA By Jim Watson

Years ago, when I was the head of the Canadian Tourism Commission, I often ran into former Ottawa residents who were living abroad. Without fail, one of the things that always came up when talking about the things they missed about our city was our tap water. It sounds like a strange thing to miss about a city but it really ISTRUETHAT/TTAWAHASEXCEPTIONALLYGOODTAPWATER In fact, in 2013, the City of Ottawa’s drinking water system received a perfect score in Drinking Water System inspections performed by the Ministry of the Environment (MOE). The MOE inspections involved up to 14 different aspects of operations including drinking water quality, water quality monitoring programs and operator certiďŹ cation. A perfect score on this inspection reects what many of us residents take for granted and what those who leave Ottawa realize quickly: Ottawa has some of the best tap water in the world. Building Permits Up Meanwhile, new statistics show that our economy is continuing to grow and we see new opportunities for job creation in the skilled trades sector. Many think of Ottawa as entirely a government town BUT AT A TIME WHEN THE &EDERAL 'OVERNMENT IS SHRINKING its workforce, Ottawa’s population is growing and our economy is diversifying. This growth means more demand for both residential and commercial buildings across our city. In 2013 that demand pushed our housing and construction project activity to have 20% construction applications than they did in 2012. In real terms, 2013 saw the City of Ottawa receive $2.4 billion worth of construction applications versus $2 billion in 2012. These ďŹ gures show that Ottawa’s economy is moving along at a strong pace and that Ottawa is transforming itself for the better. At City Hall we recognize that growth at this level brings challenges to our city’s infrastructure and our ability to deliver services to all residents across Ottawa. But these are challenges that we work hard every day to meet. I am proud that we have built recreation centres in some of THECITYSFASTESTGROWINGNEIGHBOURHOODSANDEXTENDED our road, water and sewer networks so that every resident of Ottawa can enjoy all that our city has to offer (including great tap water) wherever they may live.

Sandy Hill apartment approved without community outrage Group opposed to 45 Mann Ave. building but has to ‘choose battles’ Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city’s planning committee approved a 120-unit apartment building aimed at housing students on April 22, but this time, community members didn’t come out to oppose it. Despite a strong campaign calling for a freeze on housing proposals geared towards students and opposing other apartment proposals, a representative from the community association said this one at 45 Mann Ave. was different. “In the grand scheme of things we felt ... it wasn’t the heart of the neighbourhood. It’s on the fringe of the neighbourhood,� said Chad Rollins, the head of Action Sandy Hill’s planning committee. “You kind of have to choose your battles.� The site, located on 0.28 hectares between the University of Ottawa’s sports complex and Viscount Alexander Public School, already has a 3.5storey apartment building. It’s located within 600 metres of the two transit stations in Sandy Hill – Lees and Campus – an area slated for mid-rise development in the Official Plan. The nine-storey proposal fits the definition of a mid-rise building, but the zoning on the site only allows six storeys, so must be rezoned to permit construction of a taller mid-rise structure. The property already had denser zoning than most of the area, demonstrating that this site is targeted for growth, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. Rollins said Action Sandy Hill opposes the rezoning on broader grounds, such as the group’s interest

SUBMITTED

The city’s planning committee has given its nod to a proposed 120-unit, nine-storey apartment building to be constructed next to the University of Ottawa’s sports centre on Mann Avenue. in the university providing on-campus housing for its students and Action Sandy Hill’s call for a citywide student housing strategy. The community association had sent a lengthy letter criticizing everything from the density and setbacks to the proposed rooftop amenity space and the reduced parking requirement, but the group didn’t send a representative to make that case to the planning committee.Fleury said anger and polarizing views about student housing are limited to a handful of Sandy Hill residents. The majority of people who live in the area have seen the progress the

city has made by tackling the issues of housing conversions and infill development this year. Residents are also keeping an eye on the university’s master plan process, which is ongoing. “I think it’s hard for us to have that one voice in the community that’s saying what the majority say,� Fleury said. The apartment building will have units ranging from one to four bedrooms for an expected total of approximately 355 residents. There will be 52 underground parking spaces (reduced from the requirement of 86 spaces), 159 bicycle spaces (133 indoor and 26 outdoor).

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city has doubled back on its plan to require backyards for low-rise apartments across the city after developers complained about the rule. A number of representatives for builders in Ottawa told the planning committee on April 23 that they weren’t in the loop about proposed broad changes that would have added a new requirement for green space behind apartments up to four storeys. The rule was tacked on to a bylaw change eliminating special zoning exemptions for homes converted into multiunit dwellings. The city kicked off the study after hearing complaints about “de facto rooming houses” in neighbourhoods near universities or in colleges, like Sandy Hill. The developers said they were under the impression that any change to the rules would only affect the inner-urban wards that reported problems arising from the conversion of homes, which is what led to a freeze on converted dwellings and the study. “This report deviates significantly from where we started in 2012. It now includes lowrise apartments,” said Ursula Melinz, a lawyer representing a group of developers including Minto, told the planning committee on March 12. “It has a larger impact than originally thought.” In response, city planners agreed to limit the backyard requirement to wards 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17, in the city’s core. Planned-unit developments, the term given to a large lot with several residential buildings on it, are also exempt from the backyard requirement. “What you have before you today is a direct reflection of the feedback you heard,” Lee Ann Snedden, the city’s manager of policy development and urban design, told city council.

A requirement to include greenspace behind apartments up to four storeys has been limited to certain areas within the the city core. The modifications help make the bylaw more appropriate, she said. City council also agreed with city planners’ suggestion to only allow “tandem” parking – where two vehicles can park one behind the other in a driveway – in the same innerurban wards, instead of across the city. Council also voted to give developers not affected by the converted-dwellings freeze more time to get their planned projects into the city before the changes take effect. The builders would still have had to get their rezoning, site plan, committee of adjustment of nowextinct cash-in-lieu of parking applications in before March 20. But the city will now grandfather in applications already in the works, as long as the builders get a building permit application into the city before April 23, 2016. That captures about 30 or 40 development applications currently in the process,

according to the city staff report. The transition period doesn’t apply to Sandy Hill, Old Ottawa South or the Glebe, where an interim control bylaw was used to freeze converted dwelling applications for the past year. City planners didn’t accede to all the suggestions made by developers or residents after the planning committee’s meeting. Discarded ideas included: eliminating the requirement for a yard “amenity area” or allowing it to be located above grade, such as a rooftop patio; loosening landscape requirements; allowing more applications to be submitted in an extended transition period; exempting certain properties from the rules; and extending the interim control bylaw until the city can deal with the second phase of its updated infill rules, which are intended to address the size of homes within the Greenbelt.

New Edinburgh celebrates spring with plant sale 17th annual sale funds local initiatives Michelle Nash Michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - For many residents in New Edinburgh, including New Edinburgh Plant Sale coordinator Mary Granger an annual plant sale marks the start of spring. The sale will take place Mother’s Day Weekend, May 10, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. “It’s the rite of spring,â€? said Granger, who has organized the event for the past 15 years. The history of the plant sale goes back to 1997, when Granger and some parents started the event to help raise money for Crichton Public School. When the school closed in 1999, the group approached the Crichton Community Council to see if it was still worthwhile to hold the fundraiser. Since 2000, the council has held the sale in front of Stanley Park’s ďŹ eld house. The proďŹ ts from the sale, which range from $1,000 to $2,000 a year, help fund com-

munity needs such as rink maintenance in the winter, play structures for the park, community events and activities throughout the year. The plants, which range in colours but are all annuals, have been provided by the same local gardener, Denis Lemieux, since the sale ďŹ rst started. “Deni’s plants are simply the best,â€? Granger said. After 15 years, Granger said she never thought she would still be organizing the event, but added she also couldn’t imagine the sale not going ahead during Mother’s Day weekend. “The biggest thing I have learned over the years is that people really look forward to it,â€? she said. “I know that every year I think that we have to have the plant sale. It is great to have that community event. People expect it.â€? Of course, Granger added, the sale would not be possible if it weren’t for the faithful volunteers who come out year after year and spend more

than 12 hours selling plants to neighbours. “We have a good base of volunteers – over the last 15 years, we have the same people come out, including community gardening experts. It’s really great, and it’s(a) nice way to meet up and talk to your neighbours each spring.â€? Residents come out every year regardless of the weather to support the weather, said Granger. “We have had some dreadful Saturdays over the years, but still, people (came) out and bought their owers,â€? she said. The prices are competitive with the Byward and Parkdale Markets in an effort to keep gardeners coming back every year, said Granger. Aside from plants, the event sells anywhere from 90 to 150 hanging baskets every year. “The quality of plants is really good. The hanging pots are the best. They look great all season and we have all the usual suspects, the owers you would be looking for in greenhouse.â€? The sale starts at 8 a.m. at 193 Stanley Park.

Students host conference on world conflicts Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School students aren’t in the dark when it comes to international conflicts. A group of Grade 12 students in a courses which covers conflict and crises of the 20th and 21st century are well-versed in international events, and presented projects at a conference they hosted on April 23. The youth conference was held at the Adult High School on the same day as Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Mass Atrocities. The date is a tribute to April 23, 1867, the birthdate of former prime minister Lester B. Pearson. Sen. Roméo Dallaire and MP Paul Dewar selected the day to acknowledge the former prime minister’s commitment to peace. Ottawa students in other social science courses from Rideau, Glebe, Hillcrest and Ridgemont high schools attended the conference. Over 300 students were invited to the day-long event.

“Basically we’re informing the community and other schools about atrocities around the world and what’s going on,” said Sir Wilfrid Laurier student David SendiMukasa. “A lot of high school students aren’t exposed to this type of course.” Alisar Bawab, also a student, said the course has been opposed in some Ontario high schools because of the angle taken on certain world issues. “It’s a controversial course because there are parts of the course that highlighted the Armenian genocide, which some Turkish people did not like,” she said. “So here, even in Canada, they did not want their children to attend a class where they would learn about that.” The Armenian genocide took place in the modern-day Turkey, starting in 1915. “That’s a difficultly with getting our age aware of these things, if we can’t even have the classes available to us,” Sendi-Mukasa said. The students said they weren’t aware of any controversy over the course be-

Student Carolyn Grandy said she plans to go into international development in university, and the background knowledge in inter-

national conflict and war is a good stepping stone to studying those issues at the postsecondary level. The students organized the conference which brought in a variety of guest speakers

such as Rwandan genocide survivor Mary-Claire Wihogora and OXFAM Canada executive director Robert Fox. “Hearing what they all had to say is very inspirational,”

Bawab said. “Everyone leaves this conference with new knowledge and a new understanding of what they can do to make a change. That’s why or theme and logo is spark the change, ignite the hope.”

GET ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY INVOLVED IN YOUR CHARITABLE GIVING the perfect amount to leave children is enough “money so that they would feel they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing. ” One of the most challenging estate planning questions that parents have to wrestle with is how much of their estate should they leave to their children. As Warren Buffet once famously remarked,

Once parents have provided an appropriate amount of financial support to their children, they are often motivated to give back to the community. An increasing number of Canadian families are establishing family foundations in order to encourage all family members to get involved in the family’s charitable giving.

A private foundation is particularly well-suited to a family situation. Family members can be directors or trustees of the foundation and play an active role in deciding how funds will be managed and what charities will be supported by the foundation. Families find that the foundation keeps the family connected and parents can pass along their beliefs and values to children and grandchildren.

Apart from bringing the family together t Significant tax planning opportunities in order to promote charitable giving, a for the family. private family foundation has numerous Although there are costs associated with other benefits including: the establishment of a family foundation, t The ability of the family to decide on a number of financial institutions can an ongoing basis which charitable assist families with the establishment of organizations it will support; a foundation and many of the ongoing t The opportunity to create a legacy which administrative services. will continue once the parents have passed away;

Park would take up 40 per cent of site Continued from page 1

Architect Gianni Ria from Page and Steele in Toronto has designed two, 27-storey concave glass towers with a small, 750-square metre floorplate. The towers will rise in two phases: the first at the northeast corner of the site, which is currently a surface parking lot. The tower would sit atop a curved, three-storey podium that’s 1.5 metres wider than the tower. Four townhomes facing Gilmour Street are planning for that podium. The second tower would take the place of the existing medical building at the northwest corner of the site. Its identical podium would house a single, 370-square metre retail unit. The three-storey podium levels will be clad in limestone to help the buildings fit into Centretown’s heritage streetscape, Ria said. Once the second tower is built – within the next decade, Ria said, a “skylink” pedestrian walkway will be added to connect the two towers. “We were looking for iconic buildings,” Ria said. The two towers would hold a total of 500 residential units. The city’s policy also calls for interesting articulation at the top of the building and Ria said he has designed a unique topper to house the mechanical functions, as well as spiraling balconies that culminate at the top of the towers. But the key feature isn’t the towers – it’s the promise of new “open space” – a public park/square at the corner of O’Connor and Gilmour. The rare opportunity to create new gathering spaces and to green Centretown was what drove the creation of the controversial tall landmark buildings clause contained in the community design plan for Centretown. The issue divided residents when a final version of the plan was debated in 2013. The Centretown Citizens Community Association board even took the unheard-of step of partnering with representatives from the development industry – led by FoTenn consultants partner Ted Fobert – to draft an alternate policy aimed at creating green spaces downtown. Now, Fobert is guiding Mastercraft Starwood through the development application process for its landmark building. The park would be built as part of the first phase of development and take up 40 per

cent of the lot, as the city’s policy requires, Fobert said. That would eventually be reduced to 38 per cent when the second tower is built. There would be views from the park to art inside the open glass lobby of the first building, Fobert said. Where Fobert and the city are at odds is the ownership of the park. A last-minute change to the tall landmark buildings clause requires the open space to be deeded to the city, but Mastercraft Starwood would rather keep ownership of the parkland and pay to maintain

the landscaping. The developer also wants to build a four-level parking garage under the park, which might not jive with the city’s ownership of that piece of land, Fobert said. Mastercraft Starwood is proposing to give the city a permanent surface access agreement as a compromise to make the park “public.” Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes wasn’t enthused about the half measure. During an April 15 Centretown Citizens Community Association meeting, she bemoaned the proposal’s

failure to meet both the 40 per cent provision for public open space and the 20-metre tower separation distance. The policy calls for the buildings to be separated by 20 metres and even with the curved, concave design, the two towers are only between 15 and 18 metres apart, Fobert said. “I think it comes very close to meeting the intent of the tall landmark buildings clause,” he said. “It will be a very distinctive building in the skyline.” The developer also wants

to make sure the park, which is being designed by noted Montreal landscape designer Claude Cormier, is well-maintained, Ria said. Cormier is also designing a unique feature for a hard-surface parking, drop-off and pedestrian area. They’re calling it the “carpet” and the mosaic of hard materials will resemble something similar Cormier designed for the entrance to the Four Seasons hotel in Toronto. “It’s pretty cool,” Fobert said. “It’s a parking areas in association with the open space. The vehicular space becomes a patterned material ... it pedestrianizes it and creates an open space.” There would be room for

about four visitor vehicles in unmarked spaces on the “carpet,” Ria said. The developer is prepping to submit the rezoning application to the city in the next couple of weeks, Fobert said. Given the controversy when the tall landmark buildings clause was drafted, Fobert said there is bound to be “mixed reaction” to the proposal. He anticipates more Centretown residents will be opposed to the two towers than in favour. Representatives from Mastercraft Starwood’s team are expected to present the proposal to the Centretown community association’s planning committee in early May.

News - Mindware Academy students have launched a year-long campaign to help make a difference to children in Third World countries. The school recently attended Free the Children’s Me to We concert at the Canadian Tire Centre. Moved by the stories from the event, the students immediately wanted to find a way to help. To start, the school will host a fundraiser on May 1 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The event will include a bake sale, a coin drive and hand-made Kenyan jewelry will be for sale. Mindware spokesperson Kate

Kennery-Murphy said the event was organized because the students at the school were so inspired by the Me to We concert many felt it was important to help do their part to make a change. Some children will also be taking a vow of silence on the day, to help bring awareness to those who do not have a voice. Any money raised from the fundraiser will go towards Free the Children initiatives, which include helping children around the world thrive by building schools, offering income opportunities, farming and clean water initiatives and adopting villages. The event is open to everyone. More information about the event is available at mindware.ca

Spring burn ban in effect News - A city-wide burn ban is in effect to prevent the rapid spread of fire due to grass and brush fires. The ban will remain in place until conditions improve and the green grass starts to show through dead tall grass. This winter left more debris on the ground, such as fallen tree branches and leaves, than in previous years, which increases the risk of fire spread. All open air fires are prohibited during a fire ban even for those properties that have a burn permit.

and propane tanks. • Keep barbecue propane tanks at least three metres from buildings. • Wood piles should stored a safe distance from the home. • Trees should be pruned to create a good vertical separation from the ground. • Have a working garden hose and water supply to promptly extinguish any grass fires. • Clear out any accumulated dry/ dead debris from property. For tips on disposing yard waste, visit Ottawa.ca

CIGARETTES

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of weekly yard waste collection and use the following tips to prevent grass and brush fires: • Clear all combustible materials such as tree limbs, leaves and other dry materials away from buildings

Carelessly discarded cigarettes continue to be a major cause of grass fires during these dry periods. Smokers are reminded to please use care when butting out. Do not throw lit cigarettes out vehicle windows.

News -No one ever said growing old in Ontario would be easy. Take for instance, the increased health concerns, intensified wrinkles and the whole notion that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less time ahead of you than behind you. But, at least we have our retirement years to look forward too, right? Retirement is the time in life when we put away the work boots and enjoy life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; taking trips to tropic locations, maybe touring Europe, or finally buying that luxury car we could never afford. And, of course, we can spend more time with family. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the life weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dreamed of, as promised by those popular Freedom 55 and Pacific Life insurance company commercials. Well, Deaven Lewis didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that memo. Even at the ripe old age of 66, the Malton father of two can only dream of retirement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is that a joke?â&#x20AC;? he replies, when asked if she has any plans to give up his part-time job at the Metro grocery store in Brampton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I retire now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be living on beans, water and Kraft Dinner. At least this job allows me a little disposable income.â&#x20AC;? Lewis, a former financial services officer in the banking industry, is part of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looming pension crisis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Baby Boomers and future generations who are in jeopardy of living in poverty as a result of an increased life expectancy and a lack of finan-

cial foresight. Lewis said he made a generous salary in commercial services. But, he never had a pension plan outside of CPP. He and his wife Deanna live in a semi-detached home in Erin Mills, which they are still paying a mortgage on. The couple have some retirement savings put away in the form of Registered Retirement Savings

cent of workers in the province have a pension plan at work, while only 28 per cent of private sector workers belong to a pension plan.Without a proper fix to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pension system, many middle-income earners risk retiring without a fiscal safety net. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cost of not doing anything is the real measure here,â&#x20AC;?

SURVEY How will you fund your retirement? â&#x20AC;˘CPP: 90% â&#x20AC;˘ RRSPs: 88% â&#x20AC;˘ Part-time job: 59% â&#x20AC;˘ Sell home: 49% â&#x20AC;˘ Win lottery: 34% (BMO FINANCIAL GROUP SURVEY, MARCH 2014)

Plans (RRSPs). â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if I could go back, I would have definitely looked for a work pension plan, not much I can do about that now,â&#x20AC;? she said. According to the Ontario government, less than 35 per

said Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine the tsunami of retirees that are going to come up the system, relying on CPP and not having anything much more to support them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a huge cost to our social programs.â&#x20AC;?

There is growing consensus in Canada that many middleincome workers without a workplace pension plan will face a lower standard of living in their retirement years. However, what many financial and government experts canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree on is how to solve this looming problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe people expect to get by on just CPP,â&#x20AC;? said Susan Eng, vice-president for Advocacy at the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP), the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foremost advocacy group for seniors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (CPP) were always meant to provide a base so that the private sector and private savings can fill in the gap. CPP just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide enough to live on.â&#x20AC;? The public may have noticed that seldom does CARP use its full name anymore. Even their website doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include the name: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadian Association of Retired Persons.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the name isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really relevant anymore since half of our 300,000 members either canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t (afford to) retire, or choose not to,â&#x20AC;? Eng said. Several ideas have been floated in recent months on how to address the shortfall in retirement savings. One solution would see an increase in mandatory contributions to CPP with the goal of substantially raising CPP pension payments and doubling the current maximum yearly payout of $12,000.

ADVERTORIAL

Oueis Dentistry: Keeping the Family in Family Practice Over the years many things have changed in the field of dentistry, periodontal care, and orthodontics and many of us can be excused if we feel a little intimidated walking into a modern multi-discipline oral health care facility today. That’s why Dr. John Oueis and his team at Carling Dental and The Dental Office at Lyon & Glebe have made it a point to focus on patients first in every aspect of every visit to ensure all questions are answered and everyone feels comfortable and confident with their personalized plan for the best in oral health. Keeping to the traditions of a family practice has been a natural fit for Dr. John Oueis. The Dental Office at Lyon & Glebe was the first dentistry established in this historic Ottawa neighbourhood (not by Dr. Oueis, he’s not that old!). When Dr. Oueis took over the practice, it had a long list of existing patients and many of them still attend on a regular basis as do their children and grand-children. Among the team of dedicated professionals working at both locations are Dr. Oueis’ wife and daughter: it truly is a family tradition. This commitment to assisting patients in making the right decisions regarding their oral health becomes crucial when dealing with the wide array of options available today thanks to advancements in the field and technology. Both Carling Dental (1144 Carling Ave/just west of Fisher) and The Dental Office at Lyon & Glebe offer their patients a world of choices. They offer full service for crowns and bridges, endodontic treatment, mercury-free composite fillings, implant placement and restoration, tooth extractions (complex, impacted, wisdom teeth), bone grafting, TMJ treatment, Invisalign and traditional orthodontics, CEREC technology, night and sports guards, as well as take-home & in-office whitening. To ensure pin-point accuracy in diagnoses, Dr. Oueis has implemented the innovative use of digital x-ray and 3D scanning technology in his practice. Laser treatment is also employed as a great method to provide a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures without damaging surrounding tissues. It reduces the need for anesthesia and minimizes bleeding. Almost all patients undergoing laser treatment report faster healing times. In keeping with their patient-first philosophy, Carling Dental and The Dental Office at Lyon & Glebe offers extended hours on Wednesdays from 7:30 am to 7:00 pm. Their admin team is happy to help with all insurance related questions, and all fees are based on the Ontario Dental Association guide. Both locations are easily accessible by transit, and both offices offer plenty of free parking on site. Their website at www.OueisDentistry.ca provides a world of information on all the services and options available in an easyto-understand format. Like the Oueis team itself, the site speaks to its guests, not down to them. You can reach the Carling office at 613-722-7272 and the Glebe office at 613-233-2000. R0012670584

Make workplace pensions mandatory: lobbyist Continued from page 25

Funding such an expansion of the CPP would require a hike to premiums paid by workers and employers. The Canadian Labour Congress argues that even a modest increase to CPP could solve the pension crisis. A worker earning $47,200 or more per year, for example, could gradually double future CPP benefits with an initial premium increase of 9 cents an hour, or $3.57 a week. That’s less than the cost of a newspaper subscription, the Labour Congress notes. However, critics of this option, included among them the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, as well as Quebec and Alberta, and to some extent the federal government, have deemed mandatory increases a “job killer.” Calling it an added tax on business, opponents say a mandatory pension plan could put the province at a competitive disadvantage. The other pension fix being touted is a voluntary plan called Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPP). Under PRPPs, the self-employed or employees of companies without pension plans, could make voluntary contributions to a professionally managed pooled fund. The payout would depend on in-

Susan Eng dividual contribution and on investments returns the fund generates. Critics of that option, however, counter that unlike CPP, PRPPs won’t require employers to contribute anything. On top of that, there are concerns a large number of Canadians could choose not to buy into the plan. Some question whether people who now don’t currently contribute to an RRSP would want to contribute to a voluntary plan. At a time when traditional company pensions are rapidly disappearing, and CPP benefits are capped annually at $12,000, there is agreed sentiment that doing nothing will leave millions of middle-class earn-

ers vulnerable in retirement years. Several provincial finance ministers, including Sousa, have stepped forward to urge the federal government to move on reforms, including implementing modest increases to CPP contributions. But calls to prop up the federal program have ultimately fallen on deaf ears. Former Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said the nation’s economy isn’t strong enough to support the increased taxation needed to bolster the fund. Policymakers are nervous about declining savings, increased household debt and an overheated housing market. Flaherty had suggested taking more out of incomes of most of the working population isn’t a sound idea. “Right now the federal government is apprehensive about doing any of this, which is strange because it is in the benefit of Canadians in the long term,” Sousa said. Frustrated by federal foot-dragging, the province is drafting its own vision for an Ontario Pension Plan to supplement the CPP. Earlier this year, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne appointed former prime minister Paul Martin as a special adviser on pensions. Martin will contribute to a technical panel com-

prised of pension experts. Eng and other retirement savings experts suggest that individuals require 50-70 per cent of their preretirement income to maintain their standard of living in retirement. Most Ontarians can’t save enough to meet that target. Eng says, at best, with CPP and Old Age Security combined, one can earn about $18,000 annually post-retirement. Most Ontarians earn about $9,000 from CPP and Old Age Security, she said, with the average monthly payout less than $600. Chris Buttigieg, senior manager, Wealth Planning Strategy for BMO Financial Group, says sole dependence on CPP after retirement is a dire mistake. “Given the amount that the CPP ... pays out, Canadians should not rely on them as a primary source of income to fund their retirement,” he said. “Rather, they should consider the CPP … to be a supplementary component of their overall retirement income solution and focus on creating their very own personal pension plan by contributing to an RRSP on a regular basis.” Others are counting on the sale of a home as a way to fund retirement. That’s exactly what Sung Joo Park, a self-employed caterer, did after she turned 60.

Park, 76, lives in a rented apartment in Mississauga. Her husband, Jong Joo Park, 82, died earlier this year. Neither one of them had a private pension plan. “It’s hard,” she said. “Life was a lot easier 20 years ago.” Eng is calling on Ontario to make workplace pension plans mandatory. “It has to come into existence and somebody has to create it,” she said. Details on an Ontario plan still need to be ironed out. The plan though would likely be run by an independent organization at arms-length from the provincial government. It would also use a defined contribution system that allows workers the choice to opt out. Sousa is keen on the idea of a mandatory system with an opt-out clause, similar to what’s being done in Quebec and also in other countries. The Liberals remain steadfast on introducing new reforms. But any new pension would have to be approved by the Ontario legislature where the Liberals hold minority status. If the opposition parties vote down the government, the province will face an election, and a pension scheme for Ontario could be put on hold.

Your Body Type &

Cravings

Key!

When your body is out of balance, your cravings are about your body trying to provide stimulation for the dominant organ which is related to your body type. So what can you do? If you crave: 1. SWEETS & CARBS - your dominant body type is THRYOID Your Solution: Reduce soy and raw cruciferous veggies ( kale, cabbage, broccoli, etc. ). Increase Coconut oil, which contains lauric acid, to promote optimal thyroid function and metabolism.

2. SALT & FAT - your dominant body type is ADRENAL Your Solution: Reduce caffeine & alcohol. Increase almonds which are rich in magnesium.

3. RICH & SPICY - your

wine and increase lemons to help balance hormones.

4. DAIRY - your dominant body type is PITUITARY. Your Solution: Decrease potassium rich avocado, which tends to be reduced in this body

Preparation Time: 10 min | Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 cup Coconut water helps to infuse the body with energy boosting electrolytes, while the coconut oil stimulates your metabolism. Perfect for that hot summer day or after a workout. 1 very ripe banana, frozen ½ cup pineapple, diced plus 1 wedge for garnish 2 cups ice cubes

If you are consistent, you will make progress. One way to ensure your consistency is to make simple, highly achievable goals for yourself. You must ensure that you are 90-100% confident that you can stick to the goal for 30 days. If you feel any less confident, you must modify and simplify the goal until you feel it is achievable. For instance, instead of saying “I will cut sugar completely out of my diet”, which may be unrealistic, say “I will only have sugar on the weekends.” Therefore, you are still making a healthy lifestyle change, but one that is easily attainable. Reaching a short term goal and then setting new ones is key to long term success!

By Louie Rosella Staff

News - If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re enrolled in a pension plan, chances are your money is safe. Maybe. Perry Quinton, vice-president of marketing at Investor Education Fund (IEF), a nonprofit organization founded by the Ontario Securities Commission, says anyone who is either looking for work or already employed should view privately-funded pension plans as a necessity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be free money that if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign up for it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to get it,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any kind of incentive that forces you to save money is brilliant.â&#x20AC;? Quinton and her organization say there are mainly two types of private pension plans offered in Ontario: â&#x20AC;˘ a defined benefit pension plan, where the employer promises a specified monthly benefit on retirement that is pre-determined by a formula. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the employer to deliver what they promised when you retire. If a plan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough money,

the employer will have to put more money into the fund. â&#x20AC;˘ a defined contribution pension plan or Group Registered Retirement Savings Plan (Group RRSP), in which both you and your employer can put money into the plan. In either case, a trust company or insurance company holds this money in a separate account for you. You, not the company, own that money. Even if your employer goes bankrupt, your money is safe. Of course, you can always lose some or all of your money if the market crashes or if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invest it wisely, the IEF says. Your pension plan should not run out of money if the employer manages the fund properly, Quinton says. Even if the worst happens, some of your pension savings may be protected. In Ontario, most employers of defined benefit plans pay a yearly fee to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pensions Benefits Guarantee Fund. This fund insures the first $1,000 of an employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly pension in case the employer goes bank-

rupt. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only fund of this type in Canada. However, not even this unique fund will guarantee that an employee gets all of his/her promised pension, Quinton says, noting the infamous Nortel Networks bankruptcy case in which employees didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive all of their promised pension. Should an employee be fired or choose to leave the company, depending on the type of plan, he/she may have the option of transferring their pension earnings into another plan, Quinton says. They could also leave it where it is and collect at time of retirement or transfer into a locked-in retirement savings account (LIRA), which works much like an RRSP. There is always the chance that a company chooses to shut down its pension plan, which it can do at anytime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the plan was properly funded, you should get everything you have earned so far,â&#x20AC;? Quinton says. However, if the plan was underfunded, you may not get all youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re promised, Quinton says.

Lamb and marinade: â&#x20AC;˘ 2.2 kg (5 lb) boneless leg of lamb â&#x20AC;˘ 50 ml (1/4 cup) vegetable oil â&#x20AC;˘ 50 ml (1/4 cup) minced fresh chives â&#x20AC;˘ 15 ml (1 tbsp) grated fresh lemon rind â&#x20AC;˘ 25 ml (2 tbsp (25 mL) each fresh lemon juice and maple syrup â&#x20AC;˘ 4 cloves garlic, minced â&#x20AC;˘ 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each coarse sea salt and pepper STRAWBERRY MAPLE CHIVE GLAZE:

PREPARATION

Trim the fat from the lamb and cut it into ďŹ ve-centimetre (two-inch) cubes. In a bowl, whisk together the oil, chives, lemon rind, lemon juice, maple syrup, garlic, salt and pepper. Pour it into a resealable plastic bag and add the lamb cubes. Seal the bag and turn the cubes inside to coat. Refrigerate and marinate the lamb for two hours. Strawberry maple chive

glaze: In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat and add the shallots, garlic, salt and pepper. SautĂŠ until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the strawberries, lemon rind, maple syrup and lemon juice. Using a potato masher, mash the berries to bring out the juices. Bring them to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, to combine the ďŹ&#x201A;avours -- about 10 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and cook until thickened and syrupy, about ďŹ ve minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the chives. Set aside 175 ml (3/4 cup) of the mixture to use as a dipping sauce. Thread the lamb cubes onto skewers and place on a greased grill over medium-high heat. Brush the cubes with the remaining strawberry glaze and grill until medium-rare, about 20 minutes, turning and basting skewers occasionally with the glaze. Serve the skewers with the reserved glaze as a dipping sauce.

Moment of reflection Australian and New Zealand ex-pats, descendents, and military personnel gathered at the Canadian War Museum on April 25 to mark ANZAC Day, a commemoration of the troops from both countries who have died in combat and peacekeeping operations. Initially, the day served to mark the landing of ANZAC troops during the disastrous First World War Gallipoli Campaign in Turkey. Beginning on April 25, 1915, troops from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) came ashore in what is now modern-day Turkey, suffering severe casualties from enemy gun emplacements mounted on the high cliffs that rose above the landing site. The battle waged in support of the mission’s objective – capturing the city of Constantinople – raged for eight months before troops were evacuated from the area. STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Health centre gets provincial push $4.8 million earmarked for building upgrades, health partnership with OCH Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - The provincial government will be donating $4.8 million to the Carlington Community Health Centre to bolster services to local residents. The funding was announced on April 14 by Deb Matthews, minister of Health and Long-Term Care. The cash will go towards upgrades at the centre, helping staff deliver patient care in a more efficient manner, but would also help forge a health partnership between the centre and an Ottawa Community Housing development proposed nearby. In 2011, Ottawa Community Housing and the health centre forged an agreement to build a 70unit residential development with a medical clinic and social services hub located on the first floor. That project would be built on spare land owned by the

health centre on Merivale Road. Matthews was joined by Ottawa West-Nepean MPP Bob Charelli and Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi, all of whom touted the benefits of having access to health care close to home. The centre offers “important health and social services that are tailored to the needs of the residents of our community,” Naqvi said in a media release. Among the programs offered at the CCHC is a breastfeeding support program, part of the province’s Healthy Kids Strategy. That program offers assistance and information to new mothers. The health centre’s executive director Cameron Macleod stated the funding will help the centre fulfil its mandate of “building a healthier community … with an emphasis on helping the most vulnerable citizens.” The Carlington centre, like other community health centres in Ontario, operates as a non-profit entity designed to provide primary health care and health programming to the local community.

Fluffy flat out refuses to like garden idea

T

he seeds from SteeleBriggs had long since arrived in the mail. Mother had little wood flats laid out all over the downstairs of the house. Every day I checked, looking for sprouts of life, and when I saw some that hadn’t been there before, I was as excited as if I was witness to a birth, which, in a way, it was. Some of the boxes filled the window sills, and space on the bake table had been taken over, and that table pushed close to the window that looked out into the grape arbour. Mother tried to capture as much sunlight as possible to help her growing seeds along. I couldn’t tell what the plants were to become, and I wasn’t sure Mother knew either. So to take the mystery out of it all, Mother laced the empty seed packet onto a little stick and there was one in each box identifying what was planted. Very clever indeed, was my mother. There was still a chill in the air, but the days were warming up, and Mother said soon the garden would be ploughed up. By then the sprouts could be ready for planting. Every night before I went to bed, I carried my little kitten Fluffy in my arms and circled the boxes,

Mother said I could take the wood box out to the junk pile behind the silo while I was at it. Still in my pyjamas, with Fluffy under one arm, and the box of soil and flattened sprouts in the other, I headed for the silo. Fluffy spent the rest of her days with the rest of the barn cats well away from the house.

Funds to help people living below the poverty line Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Imagine only having $1.75 a day to feed yourself. That is how much people who are living below the poverty line in Ottawa and around the world must face everyday -- regardless how hungry they may be. In an effort to raise awareness, from April 28 to May 2 a group of Ottawa residents, including Alta Vista resident Jim Nuyens are currently taking on a challenge to live below the poverty line. For five days, they will have to plan, prepare and fill themselves up on less than a twoonie. “The Live Below the Line Challenge is an opportunity for me to get people thinking about international development,” Nuyens said. Celebrating its second year, the event is organized by Results Canada. The national grassroots organization runs programs and events in an effort to end extreme poverty through citizen engagement. For this week’s campaign, Nuyens will be joined by thousands of people across the country including 90 other Ottawans. According to Results Canada, 1.2 billion people are living below the poverty line, struggling to meet their daily needs on less than $1.75 a day. For support, Nuyens and his team of eight other individuals will lean on each other for support as well as to spread their money a little further by sharing a bag of potatoes or onions to make the $8.75 they each have to spend for the five days to go a little further. This week’s experience, Nuyens said he hopes can help make a change in reducing the number of people who live below the line. “I see this event as the same thing of people who do runs or walk-a-thons, but it’s about raising the awareness,” he said. Ottawa East News spoke with Nuyens be-

Alta Vista resident Jim Nuyens is currently living on $1.75 a day to help raise awareness and funds for people living under the poverty line. fore the campaign began, and instead of dreading the week, he was looking forward to it. “You need to prepare, but I think it’s going to go really well,” he said. “This is the best way to fundraise and raise awareness.” Last year, Nuyens said time went by easily because of the team support, which included a team lunch mid-week. Nuyens would like to raise at least $100 for the campaign, because he said, anything can help make a difference. To donate or to find out more information visit results-resultats.ca.

Red Skelton Tribute “Good Night and May God Bless”

On May 6 at the Shenkman Arts Centre, tribute artist Tom Mullica will perform a one-man show bringing these and other characters to life. “Good Night and May God Bless: A Tribute to Red Skelton” aims to capture the gentle sweetness and improvisational genius of the late comedy legend, who would have been 100 years old this year.

As a rising comic magician in Atlanta, Ga., Mullica met Skelton in the early 1980’s. They began a lasting, personal relationship that included some valuable advice from veteran to protégé: clean up the language,

avoid jokes built on negative racial stereotypes, and always perform as though there are children in the crowd. After Skelton’s death in 1997, Mullica penned a show in tribute to his good friend. Skelton’s daughter Valentina saw the show for the first time last year. “I thought it was my dad on stage, but it was Tom. His mannerisms and gestures were just like my father’s” she said. “What a treat to see a true impressionist.” Tickets to the show are available at the Shenkman Arts Centre, 245 Centrum Boulevard, Orleans, Ontario www.shenkmanarts.ca

Carp to be home of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first aquatic greenhouse â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aquatopiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to hold grand opening this July Brandon Gillet

News- Mayor Jim Watson and Coun. Eli El-Chantiry attended the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soilturning ceremony with owners and investors on April 15. The aquatic oasis facility, called Aquatopia, will hold its grand opening in July. Aquatopia is a large indoor greenhouse designed to offer year- round access to beautiful tropical horticultural displays as well as special events like luncheonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or weddings. It will feature aquatic botanical gardens complete with streams, koi ponds, landscapes with fountains, walls made entirely of plant life, and a Lotus Natural Mineral Spa. It will also offer a cafĂŠ featuring a cordon bleu chef, retail garden shops, all under a high-glass ceiling greenhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aquatopia has been a vision of mine for a long time,â&#x20AC;? said creator Nicholas Bott.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;To create a truly spectacular space that would allow the community to completely immerse itself in the natural beauty of an aquatic greenhouse.â&#x20AC;? Bott has been planning construction of Aquatopia for three years now with his wife Catherine Neville. Together they own the Pond Clinic in Ottawa which will be moving from Stafford Road West to Aquatopia upon completion. The design is inspired by the Planterra Conservatory in West BloomďŹ eld, Mich. With help from local entrepreneur and founder of the modern day Ottawa Senators, Bruce Firestone and his son Matthew, Bott was able to secure the land and building permits for the location in Carp just off Highway 417 at exit 155. According to Bott the location is perfect because there is lots of water in the area and it

features a rural setting while still being close to the city. This is ideal considering the facility will capture a completely natural feeling setting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted a space a little bit out of the city but still close enough to be convenient,â&#x20AC;? said Bott. With its unique features, Bott outlines the purpose of the facility is to, â&#x20AC;&#x153;create a more contemporary European-style garden centre and shopping facility within the region.â&#x20AC;? According to Melissa Brunet, Aquatopiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cafe and events manager, the location will host special events like business meetings or luncheons as well as private weddings. These will be catered by their cordon bleu chef, Jimmy LaFreniere, and an award-winning ďŹ&#x201A;oral team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be so beautiful and magical,â&#x20AC;? said Brunet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would want to have my wedding there.â&#x20AC;?

Sports - Jen Frechette said if a year goes by without her running a marathon, she starts to get the itch. Frechette, a resident of Greely and a teacher at Jockvale Elementary ran the Boston Marathon on April 22. It was her second time completing the 42-kilometre course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really excited,â&#x20AC;? she said before she left for the run in Bean Town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be the eighth marathon for me. And when you ďŹ nish Boston you feel like a hero.â&#x20AC;?

Frechette has been training since January. She said this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heavy snowfall and colder temps made the training frustrating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I run every Sunday and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been times where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s snowing again or freezing again and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrating, but you know you have to train or you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be ready for Boston. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very tough course.â&#x20AC;? She said she remembers training last year in -39 Celsius. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone thought we looked like crazy people,â&#x20AC;? she said. Frechette runs 30 to 36 kilometres every Sunday with a group from the Running Room. She also trains by using free weights and spin class. Frechette said she started running in high school and now she is addicted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stopped running when I had my

ďŹ rst daughter but I was at it again by the time she was 10 months,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding it was basically the same with her second. Frechette ran the New York marathon in the fall, it was the ďŹ rst marathon following the bombing in Boston and she said there was a different feel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a lot of police and security, it was quite amazing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a feeling Boston is going to have a different feel this year too.â&#x20AC;? Frechette said her family will likely be glad when she is done running for the season. Her husband, daughters and her parents will be on the sidelines in Boston cheering her on â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and hopefully meeting her at SUBMITTED the ďŹ nish line. Jen Frechette is surrounded by family after crossing the finish line at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very exciting,â&#x20AC;? the Boston Marathon in 2011. She ran in the marathon this year on she said. April 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was way to easy!â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just clicked and saved 90%â&#x20AC;?

Ottawa woman honoured for home care Champlain CCAC names Caregivers of the Year Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Lyn Rorke said when her son Wyatt was born there was no loud cry. Wyatt was born with a complex medical condition called bi-lateral vocal cord paralysis. That means he can’t speak and hasn’t been able to breathe on his own since birth. “It was very difficult at first because we didn’t know beforehand that there was anything wrong,” Rorke, a resident of Osgoode, said. “He tried to breathe and cry, and burst a hole in his lung, there were heart problems. He was in CHEO for the first three months of his life.” The children’s hospital worked with the Champlain Community Care Access Centre and social workers to help Rorke get round-the-clock nurse in their home. They also provided the necessary medical equipment. Now Wyatt is two, and while his medical condition has become Rorke’s new normal, it’s

still tough. The tracheotomy tube is still in and he has to sleep in a crib hooked up to monitors. He still can’t speak, so Rorke is working on learning sign language so she can teach it to him. “It’s tough because at the end of the day you’re just tuckered out, but you have to work on a new sign so you can teach your child,” Rorke said. Rorke was named one of the Heroes in the Home, during this year’s Caregiver Awards hosted by the Champlain CCAC on April 1. A friend nominated her and she found out she was selected in January. “It was quite an honour,” she said, adding the CCAC has been great in helping her to get the equipment and care she needs for Wyatt. But his condition means he can’t go to a regular daycare and Rorke has to take him to work with her. Fortunately she works cooking and doing errands for her employer so it works out. But this winter, they have

had a lonely, housebound existence. There is respite in the form of the Ottawa Rotary Home where Wyatt goes two days a month to give his mom a chance to recharge and refresh. It’s also a way for the little tyke to socialize. “It’s been too cold to go out because the trach (tracheotomy) means the air can’t warm before it goes into his lungs,” she said. “It also means every cold goes straight to his lungs. Since he started nursery school he has had eight colds and pneumonia.” When Wyatt is four, he will be eligible for a surgery that would take a piece of his rib bone and use it to stent his vocal cords and allow him to breathe on his own. But Rorke worries about the surgery and school. “When you’ve had the worst case scenario happen, it’s hard not to imagine the worst,” she said. Once the surgery happens, Wyatt should be able to go to school, but Rorke said she wor-

That’s why she spends so many evenings boning up on her sign language. “It’s tough but I wouldn’t trade it for the world,” she

Pet Adoptions SIMBA (A166263)

Meet Simba (A166263), a five-year-old laid-back, male kitty in search of his forever home. Contrary to his roaring Lion King namesake, Simba is a calm feline who is looking for a quiet home to bloom into the best cat he can be. His sweet demeanor and “hakuna matata” nature will make him an easy-going companion. This gentle guy would love nothing more than to curl up in a home he can call his own. Simba is a Foster-me-First adoption as he’s on medication for dental work the shelter performed and needs a checkup to make sure he’s healing properly.

For more information on Jeacquot and all our adoptable animals, stop by the OHS at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Check out our website at ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of the animals available for adoption.

Have You Thanked Your Veterinarian Lately?

food safety, by attending sale barns, investigating and managing outbreaks of illness in livestock, and just assisting farmers in maintaining the health of their herds. In clinical practice, every pet owner knows that a good veterinarian becomes a trusted partner in the health and welfare of our pet. They also often become part therapist, social worker and sadly, sometimes our grief counsellor. Ottawa’s veterinarians were among the most generous donors to the building of the new Ottawa Humane Society shelter. Local vets generously

donate their time to help the animals in the care of the OHS as part of the OHS volunteer vet program. They discount their services, walk in the annual OHS walkathon, host donation boxes in their clinics and – along with technicians, animal care attendants, and everyone who works with them – are great partners in animal welfare and close friends of the OHS. Next time you see your veterinarian, remember to thank them for all they help do to make Ottawa and the world a better place for the animals.

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

While veterinary medicine is critical for your pet and regular veterinary care is an essential part of being a responsible owner, the importance of veterinary medicine stretches far beyond the health of our much-loved pets. Veterinarians have a huge role in preventing disease in humans. Zoonotic disease ¬– animal illnesses that can be transmitted to humans – are a tremendous threat around the world, but we Canadians rarely give them a thought, and rarely need to – only because of veterinarians. Veterinarians play a crucial role in maintaining

The Blackburn Hamlet students were was the first try out the program. The Grade 3 children played games, picking up cards with photos of different fruits and vegetables and acting out the corresponding activity.
