News - A new bylaw aimed at making infill more compatible with neighbouring homes will have exactly the opposite effect in some urban neighbourhoods – and that’s the point, say city planners. After working for more

than four years on a plan to better integrate new lowrise housing into older neighbourhoods, city council has signed off on a tool that will require people who want to build or alter homes in the inner-urban wards to fill out a “streetscape character analysis” describing the characteristics of trees, green-

ery, front doors and other attributes that give that street its unique feel. The goal is to maintain that character, while allowing neighbourhoods to evolve and hopefully house more residents – the goal of the city’s intensification policy. But in neighbourhoods riddled with paved-over front

lawns and illegal front-yard parking, the streetscape analysis will work to change the character of the neighbourhood over time. That’s because the city doesn’t want front-yard parking in urban areas any more. See CITY, page 6

News - With a new park set to be built in Old Ottawa South, residents will have the chance to contribute at an upcoming design session on June 7. Organized by Coun. David Chernushenko, the session will include opportunities to discuss what type of features the park could have. “The big questions is ‘what do we want to see there?’” Chernushenko said. He said this park project was one of the first things he began to work on as a recentlyelected city councillor back in 2011. Located at Woodbine Place and Carlyle Avenue, the former Hydro Ottawa lot was decommission in 2010 and area neighbours told the councillor they hoped the land could be turned into a park. “The wheels turned slowly and it was a tough sell, maybe not the best pun, but it was a

tough sell to get the city to want to purchase the land,” he said. “Given the lack of money the city has, and the prime location in Old Ottawa South, it was certainly good news when Hydro Ottawa decided to donate the land to the city.” With $50,000 to work with from the ward’s cash in lieu of parkland funding, Chernushenko said there are many things residents could look at doing with the small park. “The sky is certainly not the limit, given the funds, but there is a lot that can be done with the small space,” he said. Chernushenko said he’s most looking forward to the discussion surrounding the naming of the park. During the June 7 session, Old Ottawa South historian Kathy Krywicki will present some historical facts about the lot at Woodbine Place and Carlyle Avenue.

United Way campaign raises $16.7 million Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The United Way said it still needs funds to help improve the lives of 16,000 people living in the city after it announced it had fallen about $4 million short of its annual campaign goal. The organization raised $16.7 million during this year’s campaign, missing the mark of $21 set at the begin-

ning of the campaign back in September. The money goes to support the organization’s work in the community. As a result, the United Way said the money raised will help 60,000 of the 76,000 lives it set out to help. Campaign co-chairs Barbara Cook and Goldy Hyder joined community partners and the campaign team at the Morrison Gardens Community House on May 16 to an-

nounce this year’s campaign total. “Together we worked hard to rally our community around the achievement of our priority goals and that work is bearing fruit. Our work cannot and will not stop here,� Cook said. “The reality is that there are another 16,000 people – almost enough people to fill the entire Canadian Tire Centre – who still need our help.� Last year, the organization

said it helped 65,000 people after raising $16 million for target-specific programming. Over the past few years the organization has struggled to reach its campaign goals and changed the way its campaigns are run, including extending the campaign and lowering its goals to better meet donors’ capacity. Executive director Michael Allen said at the beginning of the campaign this change was meant to focus on what donor’s dollars are responsible for. Fighting for community dollars, Allen added has become increasingly difficult, as more and more charities and fundraisers are looking for donations. Because of these factors, this year’s campaign took on a new focus. The 2013-14 campaign significantly reduced its goal from the more than $30 million in 2012-13 to $21 million with a focus on United Way programming. So the difference this year was the money raised was tied to what the United Way defined as measurable goals – money solely for the United Way’s organizations which requested funding through designated priorities-- no lon-

United Way Ottawa announced its campaign total on May 16 at the Morrison Gardens Community House. ger will it ask donors to raise money beyond that. Above the United Way specific goal however, donors still were able to allocated funds to other causes, raising $12.6 million for more than 3,800 other registered Canadian charities, totalling $29.3 million for the campaign year. Jeffrey Dale, director and co-founder at Odawa Group Inc. and chair of United Way’s

Community Services cabinet, said that of the money raise, $24.7 million will be invested in the community. Of this total, $12.1 million will support vital front-line programs and United Way’s work in three focus areas: Growing Up Great, Belonging to Community and Turning Lives Around with a total of 107 front-line programs and services to receive funding.

collect all the ideas and said he and the city’s parks and recreation department will make the final decision on what will go in the park. As for timing, Chernushenko, who recently registered to run for re-election in the fall, said he hopes to get the design completed before the city goes to the polls, and depending on what the park will look like, work could start as early as this summer, or as late as next year.

“I dislike the idea of giving the park a generic name,� Chernushenko said. “I think it would be fun to learn about the history of the streets and have the park named after someone who did something exceptional for the area, someone we don’t already know about.� He said all the design ideas can be written, drawn or discussed.

Glebe Collegiate students knock on doors for CHEO Three-hour fundraiser aims to raise thousands Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - For the fourth year in a row, hundreds of Glebe Collegiate students will be knocking on doors in the neighbourhood to help sick kids. The annual Kids 4 Kids CHEO fundraiser, organized by Glebe Collegiate teachers Janice Bernstein and Katherine Caldwell, typically raises more than $17,000 in about three hours. All the money collected is donated it to the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, and this year the students are hoping to raise $20,000 on May 29. Bernstein said all donations are collected by the high school students who canvass the neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students take a lot of pride in doing this. For a lot of students, high school is their first time experiencing volunteerism,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a way they can learn about paying it forward and wanting to become civic minded residents all by simply by going door-todoor.â&#x20AC;? More than 500 students participate in the event. Each student, Bernstein said, will be easily identified with CHEO and Glebe Collegiate buttons pinned to their T-shirts. Students in groups in twos and threes go door-to-door in the Glebe, Glebe Annex, Old Ottawa East and Old Ottawa South. Donations in amounts higher than $20 will receive a tax receipt. According to Bernstein, over the years the students have really embraced this fundraiser and many have even become leaders for the cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a team of about 30 students who help run the event,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great. The students really take the lead and do an incredible amount of work to get this going.â&#x20AC;? The unique thing about this fundraiser, the teacher said, is that typically door-to-door fundraising for the hospital is not allowed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past, we would fundraise for cancer foundations, but every

student has been to CHEO or knows someone who has used their service and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such an important service. We reached out to CHEO to see if we could do something. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great partnership.â&#x20AC;? The event, which begins at 5:30 p.m. with a barbecue and a pre-canvassing basketball game scheduled. After that, the students get to work, canvassing for three hours. The fact that the students are able to collect such a large amount of money in such a short amount of time is pretty phenomenal, Bernstein said. Local businesses also participate, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to never spend a cent

to do the fundraising and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made possible by the donations and volunteer help we receive.â&#x20AC;? From donations for the barbecue to putting up posters, Bernstein said although this event is organized by the school, it truly has become a community event over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Community really comes together. Parents, community members everyone helps out,â&#x20AC;? she said. If residents are away during the evening, there is an alternative way to donate online at cheofoundation. com/glebe-collegiate-kids-4-kidscheo-drive. For more information about the event or to participate, contact Bernstein 613-239-2424 ext. 203, or email either organizer katherine. caldwell@ocdsb.ca or janice.bernstein@ocdsb.ca.

Bingham Park will be getting a splash of colour this weekend as local residents host a planting session in the park.

Green thumbs wanted to tend urban flower beds Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - Lowertown is looking for some gardening gurus to help brighten up Bingham Park. Residents who live near the park will be pulling on their gardening gloves on May 24 to help plant the flowers, and Lowertown Community Association board member Sarah Bonesteel said any additional help, or flower donations would go a long way. “It’s a good time of the year, if you are dividing your perennials, you can share them with the park,” said Bonesteel. “We also need lots of volunteers. There is lots of planting to do.” The gardening project is

just a small part of what residents living near the park have been up to since 2010 when the group began working with their city councillor and city staff to fix the aging park. From fundraisers to collecting donations, residents rallied behind efforts aimed at turning the drab place into an area older children and adults could play. Things began to turn around when the Chance Foundation handed the community a $20,000 grant for park upgrades, a donation from the Rideau Street Desjardins Bank of $13,633 and donations from the community of $2,790 helped the group qualify for the city’s major capital grant – which matches every dollar raised by the commu-

nity. In total the community has $74,000 available to upgrade the park. Those upgrades are almost complete, and the community intends to celebrate its new park with an event on June 8 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This gardening event is just another small part of making the park a great space to be. “Even if you can’t make it, but you have perennials to donate, we will come and pick them up,” Bonesteel said. “And if anyone is a gardener and has advice, please send it.” More information about the event is available by emailing Bonesteel at info@lowertownbaseville.ca.

Community - Residents in Old Ottawa East have another reason to get outside this spring. Organized by the Community Activities Group, the weekly Brantwood Barbecue and Picnic kicked off on May 15 and will take place each Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The goal the activities, the group said, is to bring the community together. Hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie dogs and drinks are all available to purchase, with food and drink sales will support Community Activities Group’s programs and events. Families are also encouraged to bring their own picnic if they wish. The weekly barbecue event began in 2012 and was created by the group as a way for residents to get out and meet each other. There will also be activities organized for the evening,

Renowned Noffke buildings featured during Doors Open Ottawa 2014 By Jenna Guilbeault

Werner Ernst Noffke (1878–1964) was once a household name in Ottawa, but today he is largely unknown to those who are unfamiliar with our city’s architectural history. A German native, he was one of Ottawa’s most influential architects, and several of his buildings will be featured in Doors Open Ottawa 2014, a free event that celebrates the capital’s historically, functionally, culturally and architecturally significant buildings. Noffke’s interest in architecture developed when he was a young boy, and by the age of 14 he was an apprentice to local architect Adam Harvey, who was also of German decent. As his passion for architecture grew, Noffke went on to study at the Fine Arts Association of Ottawa. By 1904, he would celebrate his first independently constructed building, which became his own home. The oldest of five Noffke buildings participating in this year’s event was constructed in 1910 and is located at 534 Queen Elizabeth Drive. Currently, it is the official residence of the Greek Ambassador to Canada, but it was built for lawyer and Liberal Party organizer Andrew Haydon and was known as Haydon House. This marks the embassy’s first year in Doors Open Ottawa. Also featured for the first time is Powell House, built in 1913 for William Powell, who developed houses for the upper-middle classes in the Glebe before the First World

Shannon Ricketts, author of Werner Ernst Noffke: Ottawa’s Architect, said “Powell House is one of the largest and most elaborate of his favorite style – the Spanish colonial revival – a style for which Noffke was well known in Ottawa.” Other buildings that will be featured in this year’s Doors Open Ottawa include the Embassy of the Republic of Armenia to Canada, which was renovated by Noffke in 1917 and 1922; the Mercury Court Building, which received additions designed by Noffke in 1930; Mother House Chapel of the Sisters of Charity of Ottawa, built in 1936 by Noffke, Lucien Leblanc, and general contractor Henri Dagenais; and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, renovated by Noffke in 1948. This year’s Doors Open Ottawa will feature 130 buildings, many of which are not normally open to the public, including 20 that are new to the program or that have not been able to participate in over five years. History and architecture are at the heart of this event, and Noffke’s buildings have a big part in telling the city’s story. “Many of Noffke’s grand homes are perfect residences for embassies, because they offer such splendid spaces for entertaining and great detail in the staircases and woodwork,” states Ricketts.

NCC gears up to restart LeBreton redevelopment Interim improvements coming Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The newly appointed National Capital Commission CEO wants to rewrite plans to develop LeBreton Flats, but he’s in no rush. The NCC held a design charette on May 13 for invited VIPs to brainstorm temporary improvements to the southeast and southwest corners of Booth and Wellington streets, but action on a long-term development plan is about a year out, said Mark Kristmanson, who took over the top role at the organization in February. The NCC is ready to move on from the never-realized 1996 vision for LeBreton Flats as a mixed-use community, Kristmanson said. That plan led to Claridge purchasing part of the land, which used to be home to the workers who built Ottawa. “I think we have to learn

lessons from the first round,” he said. “I think it’s fair to say we’ll start fresh in terms of our approach.” The advent of light-rail transit and Windmill’s proposed redevelopment of the Chaudiere Islands adjacent to the flats, have changed the context of the area, Kristmason said. Although the NCC still has to work with the city on a storm water management plan for the area to prevent it from returning to wetlands, the agency plans to draft a request for proposals to look for developers that are interested in helping build on the flats. “We don’t want it to be that long term. I don’t want to make a firm commitment, but we’d like to go out (with that request for proposals) something like within a year,” Kristmanson said. “We’d like to plumb the creativity of the world. This is a major site in the core of a G8 capital ... It’s to let the world

come to us and say, ‘We could do this or we could do that.’” He emphasized that some kind of major “anchor” will be an important part of redefining the vision for the flats. “We’ll be looking for some kind of an anchor institution or an attraction and then other uses on the rest of the site, but we’re just starting that process, so it’s a bit early to comment,” he said. “We really want the creative juices out there and developers and communities to be applied to this site. What really creative things can we bring here?” he asked. “I’m not sure that’s going to be generated from us. I think that’s going to have to come from outside.“ He said there will be a future opportunity to the public to participate in that process. John Smit, manager of urban development review for the city, was one of those invited to the session. He agreed with Kristmanson’s idea to start fresh and said he was approaching the consultation

The NCC’s Richard Dagineault, left, and Mark Monahan, founder of Bluesfest, participate in a design charette to find short-term improvements for the corner of Booth and Wellington at LeBreton Flats. with an open mind. “Given that it’s never fully been implemented or acted on, it really presents an opportunity to relook at the situation and see where there is a potential to (build) not just a commercial and residential community as contemplated, but to see what else might be possible here that could really start rejuvenating and adding to the identity of Ottawa and to the identity of the capital,” Smit said. While the federal public

works department is currently engaged in consulting the public and drafting detailed plans for the redevelopment of large swaths of land, including Tunney’s Pasture and the former CFB Rockcliffe, Kristmanson said the NCC’s approach to developing LeBreton Flats “will probably be a little more open process than that.” “Essentially, the long-term vision is to provide a vibrant and exciting public space, to develop the waterfront, to cre-

ate an anchor attraction for the capital and to do it through world-class sustainable design through partnerships with the private sector,” Kristmanson said. He said the NCC will take the summer and fall to decide how it will proceed with selling off the land, but Coun. Diane Holmes, whose ward contains the flats, insisted it was critical that the parcels of land be small and that a variety of developers be engaged in the process of rebuilding a true neighbourhood. “There needs to be many developers so you get different architecture, different concepts,” she said. “Everyone I talk to says (Claridge’s Phase 1) is not a friendly place. It’s not a homey neighbourhood. It’s not a neighbourhood that’s being built and we want neighbourhoods.” Ensuring there is space for small businesses along Booth Street, the main drag, will be critical, Holmes said. Smit said the NCC needs to proceed with caution when it comes to flooding the real estate market with developable land. But making interim improvements and creating a strategy for how the land is parcelled off and sold for development is a wise approach, Smit said.

City has no plans to actively crack down on current front-yard spots Continued from page 1

“It creates all kinds of problems with snow storage, the on-street parking supply and

the amount of vegetation,” said Alain Miguelez, the city’s program manager of zoning and intensification. “We don’t condone front-yard parking. We R0012708738

don’t want it anymore.” Miguelez said there is a misconception that parking is “free.” “It’s not free. There is a cost to the neighbourhood if you take out a tree. There is a cost to the neighbourhood if you’re creating curb cuts and reducing the number of on-street parking spaces,” he said, noting that driveways reduce the number of on-street parking spaces that all residents and visitors could use. The new infill streetscape character analysis process will make those trade-offs more acute as it forces people to find space to park their vehicle in their backyards or in a laneway, depending on the lot size – but not in the front yard. To make it happen, the city eliminated the requirement to provide parking for dwellings containing fewer than 12 units. “It’s kind of a restorative

wave that will happen on those streets over time, with infill,” Miguelez said. “We want to repair the damage that’s been done, in a way. If a new infill has to respect the landscaping front and they decide to do landscaping and plant a brand new tree, that’s an improvement on the street.” That could prove to be problematic for people who want to live in Centretown, many of whom look for at least one parking space when buying a home, said Judy Forrest, cochairwoman of the Centretown Citizens Community Association’s planning committee. “I think some people would be very upset if they had to give up their front yard parking,” Forrest said. “I think it would probably be a factor if somebody is looking at buying a property... unless someone doesn’t own a car or wants to use a Virtucar.”

The city won’t actively crack down on illegal frontyard parking, Miguelez said, but the streetscape character analysis won’t allow those parking spaces to be maintained if changes are made. “If it’s not ‘legally established,’ we’ll just consider it as hard landscaping, which is a way of avoiding a witch hunt,” Miguelez said. “There are no front-yard parking police that are going to go and hunt you down. “The people who have installed front-yard parking know who they are. They know they’re not supposed to and they know that if they try to sell their house at any given time, the lawyer for the purchaser can ask for a status and the city will say, ‘It’s not legal,’ and they will have to remove it,” he said. The community association hasn’t issued a firm position on

the issues of front-yard parking because the group hasn’t gone out to ask a broader swath of residents how they feel about it, Forrest said. “I think historically the community association has not been supportive of front yard parking, but we haven’t gone out recently to (do) a broad public discussion on that issue,” she said. “Ideally, we’d like to see less front yard parking. But we need to have solutions, so what is the solution?” The Centretown community association has long asked for parking studies for the area and the need for parking studies was highlighted in the community design plan approved last year, Forrest said. She said people in Centretown have concerns about convenience and the safety issues with parking vehicles on the street, where they are exposed to more risk of damage.

Just hold your nose and vote on June 12

O

ntario votes on June 12. In case you’ve been living under a rock or actively searching for this information, say, among your politically apathetic Facebook friends, I’m providing here, right out in front: June 12 is the day we, Ontarians, get to vote. I’ve rarely been an apathetic voter. People have fought and died for my right to vote and I take the exercise more seriously than regular trips to the dentist. (In fact, I’m so serious about it that I’m rescheduling my dentist appointment, currently booked for June 12, so I can get to the polls). But this election leaves most of us little to get excited about. It’s unlikely to turn out very well for Ontarians, no matter who wins. It’s the Liberals’ election to lose, of course. The party has been in power in the province for 11 years. Before the election was called by Lt.-Gov. David Onley on May 2, more than three-quarters of Ontarians determined it was time for a new party to lead. Various polls suggest a few weeks of campaigning have not changed Ontarians’ minds on this. To combat this apathy, the Liberals have made a number of significant campaign declarations, including rainbow-coloured unicorns for all union members and Rainbow Looms for every school child in the province. I’m joking, of course, but it does seem the Liberals plan to win this election as they’ve won past elections, by promising everything to everyone and pleasing no one in the end. It’s not a strategy that’s likely to work for them this time, however. The Liberals face an uphill battle if they want to maintain the support of more than one third of voters for another

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse win. They’ve made a lot of enemies out of traditional party loyalists. Who can forget former premier Dalton McGuinty’s showdown with public school teachers two years ago? Since Kathleen Wynne took over last year, she’s been chipping away at potential support from Bay Street. Many had anticipated she may put the brakes on her predecessor’s big spending, but she’s done the opposite. Ontario has a deficit of more than $11 billion, and according to Finance Minister Charles Sousa just prior to the campaign, diminishing the deficit is not at the top of the priority list right now. Most recently, the introduction of the Ontario College of Trades has triggered an outcry from building contractors, hairdressers and many small business owners who employ certified tradespeople. They see the college as a cash-grab, a hidden “tax” by the Liberal government and many have vowed to punish them on June 12. Given all this it seemed at the outset of the campaign that Ontario Progressive Conservative party, with Tim Hudak at the helm, may have a chance to win this thing. That was until Hudak made headlines with his “million jobs plan,” one week into the campaign. Most controversial, of course, is his vow to chop 100,000 jobs from the Ontario public service, in order to reduce corporate taxes (again) and create 40,000 new private sector jobs. My math skills

may not be top notch, but that calculation creates a job deficit of 60,000, assuming all jobs are created equally, which they’re not. Despite a common will for fiscal prudence, Ontarians aren’t buying into Hudak’s job plan either. Following his announcement one week into the campaign, his support started to slide in the polls. Most poltically-aware Ontarians are conscious of the need to rein-in spending. Many, however, are not prepared to live through another Mike Harris-type era of government-union clashes and severe belt-tightening, nor to see salaried positions replaced with low-paying service jobs. NDP leader Andrea Horwarth forced this election by voting against Wynne’s budget in early May. Unfortunately, she’s not likely to make any headway in Ontario’s two-horse race. Howarth’s biggest challenge will be to differentiate her party from the left-leaning Liberals, a tough sell considering the Liberal budget promised much of what is already in the NDP platform. Forgive the over generalization within this column, but elections are rarely fought and won on details. Still, try not to be apathetic about it all. The party that can get out its vote most successfully will be the party that wins. So get to the polls June 12, hold your nose, and vote for your best local candidate. At least you earn the right to complain for the next four years, whatever the outcome.

It sure beats the snow

A

fter a long, cold winter, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing the people of this city would enjoy more than a heatwave. For what felt like an eternity, Ottawa, and much of the rest of North America for that matter, sat trapped in a semi-glacial state. Nearly all of the Great Lakes froze over. There was snow on the ground almost everywhere in the United States at one point. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had heavy snowfalls in the past â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who can forget the winter of 2007-08 when more than 400 centimetres of fluffy white stuff fell on the city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it was the combination of snow and bonechilling cold that made the winter of 2013-14 among the most unbearable in recent memory. The depressing thing is things arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get much better any time soon. Unfortunately weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at a wet spring and some long-range forecasts suggest a cooler-than-average summer. The spring thaw and rains that pumped up local rivers and streams have passed with minimal flooding, but it seems like the showers will never stop. Such is late spring in Ottawa. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all bad news though. Rain may be a pain, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a necessary part of the year for everything we get to harvest this summer and fall. Even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a farmer or growing backyard veggies,

surely we can all agree rain is better than snow. And better that we get the daily showers out of the way before the outdoor festival season gets underway across our city. Events like Ottawa Bluesfest, the Jazz Festival, Folkfest, Canada Day, Race Day and upcoming football and soccer games at Lansdowne Park are much more enjoyable on bright sunny days and warm evenings than when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overcast and damp. Yet the rain will be great for those who got out over the Victoria Day weekend to fill their gardens full of annuals, perennials and vegetables. Better yet, if the heat is toned down a little bit, the lack of scorching heat will only benefit most of those plants and save gardeners from going through litres upon litres of water on a daily basis just to keep the flowers perky and crops alive. This goes for local farmers, too, who bring their bounty to the tables at farmers markets across the city. Just the right amount of rain and warmth, but not oppressively hot, days will help them make the most of their efforts. Weather is an obsession with we Canadians, and it never seems to be perfect for anyone. But it always helps to take a wider look at these trends and see the good in what would otherwise be a dreary spring.

s we find out every day, the Internet giveth and the Internet taketh away. The incredible convenience of doing things online is matched by the incredible inconvenience caused by what others do online. And this doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even count what spending all your time online does to your waistline. The latest event to bring this to our attention is a minor crisis at Centrepointe Theatre where some ticket buyers wound up paying inflated prices to a ticket reseller. The theatre will honour the tickets, even though they were purchased from an unauthorized outlet. In all likelihood the buyers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the outlet was unauthorized, since all ticket resellers look quite respectable, even official, when they show up in a Google search. According to a Centrepointe official quoted in the Ottawa Citizen, about 50 per cent of the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tickets are sold online. What happens then is unclear. Do ticket resellers jump in and snap up tickets and sell them for more than they are worth? Or do individual buyers, because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend, perhaps because they want to make a little extra cash, offer up their seats through ticket resellers? Whichever it is, the results arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all good.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town While some laud the reselling system for making it possible for people to attend events for which tickets are scarce, others blame the system itself for creating the scarcity of tickets. And there is the further problem of phony tickets. The immediate impulse of many people is to demand that government do something to stop this. The problem is that governments already have. Across Canada, including Ontario, governments have put in place rules to prevent reselling at more than face value. But, of course, resellers operating out of the U.S., which was the case in the Centrepointe incident, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry about Ontario law. And the laws donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to have put an end to the ticket reselling business, which carries on. Just do a search on tickets for any

upcoming event in Ottawa and see what pops up. Despite a law against selling at inflated value, there must still be money in the reselling biz. Is this a problem? Depends on how you look at it. There are two issues: one is price, the other is availability. Provincial laws deal mainly with the first. The second is tougher. Those who remember the pre-computer days, remember lining up at 5 a.m. or trying desperately to get through on the phone to the box office on the day tickets to a big event went on sale. In the early computer days, the wait was to connect online to the box office the instant the box office opened. That still happens, but it appears in some instances that the resellers somehow get there first, snapping up tickets and frustrating the public. A lot of people just learn to live with this. They trudge off, electronically, to the reseller and get their tickets. Those that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know their way around have to do without, as do those who have an aversion to what they think of as computerized scalping. Some of them would sooner pay the extra dollars to the old-time scalper, the guy with the cigar whispering outside the arena. At least he seems like a small businessman.

For the moment, it appears that government isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the answer. Is the answer to ask large entertainment venues not to sell online? Imagine how that would go over. Even for older generations, using online to purchase tickets has become a habit. Could tickets be made non-transferable? Combining tickets with I.D. has been tried in various places. But what about the person who has genuine reasons for not being able to attend and needs to get rid of his ticket? Fixing this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be easy.

Centretown DIY arts fair has something for everyone Workshops, food truck set to feature this year Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - A park in Centretown will be taken over by more than 60 vendors this weekend, all who have one thing in common â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a do-it-yourself attitude. The Ravenswing Arts and Music Fair will turn Centretownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Minto Park into an arts and music hub on May 24. The event, in its eighth year, is focused on celebrating creativity in

Centretown. Co-founder of the fair Sean Zio is working with fellow artisan Lauren Potosky to get things up and running this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything we do at the fair is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;do-it-yourself,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Zio said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vendors make their goods by hand, the musicians are local and independent, and the skill-sharing workshops teach people to be able to do more things on their own.â&#x20AC;? All the artists are local and Zio said many return year after year.

For those wannabe artists in the city, Potosky said the workshops are the best way to get your feet wet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are offering three workshops this year, which weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty excited about,â&#x20AC;? Potosky said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have two hands-on workshops, up cycled leather earrings and stencil printing.â&#x20AC;? Since the beginning, the fair has partnered with the Clothesline Project, a non-profit organization which aims to raise awareness of violence against women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had actually rented the park for Ravenswing before they made their application and they asked if

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a wonderful group of vendors who come out to join us,â&#x20AC;? he said. Returning this year includes Yakety Yak Designs, which makes colourful oven-safe pottery; Purple Urchin, which makes soaps and scented accessories; Dianne Rodger Jewellery and Urbanite Jewelry, which make very stylish and contemporary pieces; and the resident fortune-teller Dot from Magickal Forest, which is always a popular table at the fair. In addition to the fan-favourites, Zio said this year they will also have a food truck, Lunch, onsite.

they could join us,â&#x20AC;? Zio said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were very happy to have them join us.â&#x20AC;? Zio said the organization has brought a lot of awareness to the artists group and has received a lot of feedback from both vendors and attendees about the cause. The project consists of putting up display T-shirts that are created by women and children who have been affected by violence. A full list of vendors, the workshop schedule and additional information about the fair is available at ravenswingottawa.tumblr. com.

Marquette residents upset with new apartment proposal Residents worry ‘family’ street could change with a four-storey apartment building Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

A four-storey 22 unit development proposed for Marquette Avenue would replace the two homes on the site.

Adjustments only happen on weekday afternoons, and they’re extremely rare. In 2013, there were only two peaksaver PLUS® activations. Most people don’t notice a difference in temperature.

in with the character of their neighbourhood. The development in question will see two homes located at 67 and 71 Marquette Ave. into a four-storey apartment building. The concern, resident Fabrice Côté said, is that this development could change what he and many residents feel is a “family-oriented street.” “We have strong concerns about this development, said Côté. The rental building proposes 22 units, with 11 parking spaces and will be studio, one and two bedroom apartments ranging in size from 27.8 square metres to 74.3 square metres and will turn what are currently two-storey homes into a four-storey apartment building. The proposal also provides 11 bicycle parking spaces. The development calls for a number of site-specific zoning bylaw amendments, including an increase in height, a reduction of front yard setbacks from six metres to three, reduction in side yard and rear yard setbacks, a reduction in landscape coverage and reduction in driveway width and parking spaces. More than 17 residents attended the Vanier Community Association’s May 13 meeting, seeking the support of the association and Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury in opposing the plan. Many residents expressed frustration with both Fleury and the association, stating the application was going through as planned and neither had reached out to the residents on the street. “We are here today because we felt there was no notification or awareness about this project,”Côté said. Fleury said nothing is set in stone, as the application is in its early stages, and encouraged individuals to comment on the proposal. “There is a process. We need to hear from you, to get your concerns

to the planner,” he said. “We want to make sure the intended development is also the desired development. Will this go forward? It’s too early to tell. Will there be changes? There always is.” The association agreed with Fleury’s comments, adding that the group’s role, ultimately, is to represent the residents and if the residents aren’t happy, they take that seriously. The association, which has a Facebook page, a Twitter account and a website to communicate with residents, said the best way to stay informed about this or any proposal in the community is to become members or stay connected through social media and the Internet. The councillor reiterated with residents that the proposal is very new, and all the concerns mentioned would be taken seriously. The councillor and the association also agreed to host a meeting with the developer and residents. The developer and owner of the two properties, Marc Larose, lives in the area and said the development of the property is intended to be a long-term investment for him and his family. He said the plan is to add affordable, rental housing to the neighbourhood. The units, which will vary in price, will range from $950 for a bachelor to $1,600 for a penthouse suite. There are also plans to have a communal landscaped amenity area above the ground floor. “We found that there is a very low vacancy rate with studio apartments,” Larose said. “With this proposal, we will be adding 11 studio apartments, to fill that need.” Larose said he welcomes feedback from the community. “The concerns of the community are something we want to address, and are looking to address,” Larose said. He added that the goal for this proposal is to attract to quality tenants. The full application is available on the city’s website, ottawa.ca.

War Museum historian honoured for Cold War book Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - Ask any Canadian over a certain age what’s the best course of action to take after they “see the flash,” and they’ll likely reply “duck and cover.” This less-than-ideal defence against atomic weapons was drilled into the minds of schoolchildren across Canada and the U.S. during the height of the Cold War, as governments encouraged citizens to take precautions against nuclear attack. Andrew Burtch, a Canadian War Museum historian specializing in post-Second World War Canada, describes in detail the many precautions taken to counter the looming threat in Didn’t get your

War Amps

“It’s largely forgotten now, but it was fun to go back and research the ways (the threat) manifested in society,” said Burtch. Travelling civil defence roadshows loaned from the U.S. trundled through Canadian cities in the early 1950s, teaching parents how to protect themselves and their homes in the case of a nuclear attack, while children were taught in school to duck under their desk to protect from flying debris in the event of an attack. Under many plans, members of community and service groups, the Red Cross, St. John’s Ambulance and even the Boy Scouts were to be mobilized in the aftermath of a nuclear strike. Governments of the day have a responsibility to counter

something of a civic holiday. Preparations for nuclear war over the years had lulls and peaks, explained Burtch. The initial flurry of activity in the early 1950s fell off until the early 1960s, when tensions with East Germany and then the Cuban Missile Crisis had North America waiting breathlessly on the eve of a war that didn’t materialize. Tensions and preparation rose again in the early 1980s, with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and talk of space-based weapons systems. Burtch’s book is available through Chapters and Amazon, but copies can also be picked up at the War Museum and – appropriately – the Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War museum.

your neighbours,” said Burtch, adding that the proposed measures, while often flimsy, “were the best thing available for a bad situation.” Receptiveness within Canada to civil defence was also wildly uneven. Though Ontario and Quebec were the most likely targets, both provinces were loathe to spend money on it and preferred to have the federal government fund any defence. The City of Ottawa refused to sign on to a civil defence plan, though civil servants working here did have one of their own. Toronto wouldn’t foot the $400 bill for the travelling civil defence roadshow. “Alberta was very active,” said Burtch, describing how Calgary’s “Operation Lifesaver” evacuation drill became

new threats to their people, said Burtch, however, like in previous “hot” wars, the response in the Cold War wasn’t particularly effective. In Canada, much of the planning information distributed through film and pamphlets put the onus on the individual to survive and take on leadership roles in the radioactive aftermath of an attack. City-wide evacuation plans, communal and backyard bomb shelters were also thought up as means of defence, but most didn’t see the light of day as personal and municipal finances, political squabbling and the lull of peacetime life intervened. “When times are good, you try not to think about the world catching fire and fighting off

his 2012 book Give Me Shelter: The Failure of Canada’s Cold War Civil Defence. His look at the uneven, delayed and often ignored civil defence plans in Cold War Canada earned him the C.P. Stacey Award, an honour presented by the Canadian Committee for the History of the Second World War and the Canadian Commission for Military History. The book had roots in the research Burtch performed while preparing his doctoral dissertation. Beginning during the Korean War and peaking in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the threat of a Soviet atomic attack was something parents and their children lived with each day.

Nepean councillor wants room rental licenses Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Requiring homeowners who want to rent out rooms near Algonquin College to buy a license might help alleviate student-housing problems, said Coun. Rick Chiarelli. At a meeting on June 19 of the community and protective services committee, the College Ward councillor will ask city staff to look into possible licensing schemes for landlords who want to rent out three or four rooms in their homes. The goal is to prevent illegal conversions of single-family homes into mini-apartments. It’s not focused on reducing the number of rental units, but rather on preventing structural changes to homes that change the fabric of the neighbourhoods, Chiarelli said. “The only additional restriction is the units that are there illegally,” Chiarelli said. “Our communities don’t want Ryan Farm, Cityview and Bellaire to become what Sandy Hill became when it was at its worst,” Chiarelli said. “They want to ensure we enforce the zoning bylaw that

makes it a neighbourhood.” The councillor said the community has been discussing the problems with illegal conversions for six years and recent Supreme Court decisions in favour of the municipalities of Waterloo and Oshawa, which created licenses for rental housing in specifically defined areas seemed to offer an appropriate solution. Chiarelli’s motion, which would need to gain the committee’s approval, will ask staff to look at any solutions that have been used elsewhere in Ontario, but he has a specific focus on licensing. It would also ensure the issue is brought up at a meeting of the provincial Urban Municipal Law Enforcement Network. “We zoomed in on some sort of control that would let officials get access to the building to determine if the law is being broken,” Chiarelli said. “Right now, there are a number of cases where everyone knows the law is being broken, but we have to wait for the opportunity to be able to look.” His office gets reports about possible illegal rental conversions every week, he said. Right now, it’s difficult for

The possibility of requiring landlords to get a license before they rent out rooms is one student-housing solution College Coun. Rick Chiarelli wants city staff to research. bylaw officers to enforce the zoning that restricts the number of units that can be rented out. There needs to be “specific evidence” of the violation such as a document, Chiarelli said. “It can’t just be someone saying ‘I know they have 10 units rented out,’” he said. “It takes bylaw officers months and months and months of work to be able to gather that.” Under his proposed scheme, if landlords attempt to rent out rooms illegally without a license and the city is alerted,

it would trigger an inspection in order to begin the process of obtaining a license. That inspection of illegally converted dwellings wouldn’t be allowed now, Chiarelli said. Chad Rollins of Action Sandy Hill said he didn’t see the harm in asking city staff to research the possibility of licensing room rentals – the community association and nine other community groups called for just that in a letter sent to Mayor Jim Watson and the planning committee. But Rollins wondered if

limiting a potential solution to the neighbourhoods surrounding Algonquin College was an equitable approach. “If there are multiple areas of the city having the same problem, then such a solution shouldn’t be confined to just one of those areas,” Rollins said. Chiarelli said the licensing idea “might be picked up” for other areas in the city, but he’s focused on the area around the college. “We don’t want licensing across the entire city. We don’t want licensing of all landlords,” Chiarelli said. “It’s targeting certain areas that have the increased calls about violations and that’s perfectly legitimate to do. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said it would make more sense to treat every area the same unless a solution – whether it’s a license or another option – was just being tested. “Obviously we’d prefer to bring a model that works citywide ... but if it needs to be piloted, it might need to be brought to a specific community,” he said. Fleury said bringing the discussion of options for tackling

student housing issues into the public realm isn’t a bad idea, but he said he’d have to see the details of a licensing scheme before weighing in on whether he would support it for his area. He said the review might come up with other solutions that are easier or more relevant than licensing. Fleury said he’d prefer something that could improve living conditions for students, who he said comprise about 10 per cent of the city’s population. Chiarelli said adding a license would actually make it easier for homeowners who aren’t familiar with the specifications needed in order to rent out rooms. There are about 2,000 homes in the area that could be covered by the new licensing scheme and Chiarelli estimated 30 to 40 per cent of those homeowners would like to rent out a room. There could be an agreement with Algonquin College that would see inspected and licensed units – and only those units – listed on the college’s off-campus housing registry. Creating a new license would create more work for the bylaw department, Chiarelli said, but in theory the licenses would pay for the program. Chiarelli suggested the licenses could cost between $40 and $100.

Afghanistan artifacts find way to War Museum End of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in Afghan conflict prompts new displays Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - Visitors to the Canadian War Museum can expect to see new artifacts from Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission in Afghanistan, the end of which was marked by last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Day of Honour. Starting May 9, six objects that symbolize the sacrifice of those who took part in the Afghan campaign will be on prominent display at the museum. In the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main lobby will be a canvas titled Next of Kin and a wood sculpture called Highway of Heroes, both of which speak to the bond between family and those serving overseas. Next of Kin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; created at Camp Mirage, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staging base in the United Arab Emirates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; contains the signatures of family members of military personnel who died during the campaign. The signatures occurred as family members entered the base for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;next

of kinâ&#x20AC;? visit. Highway of Heroes, a woodcarving by Bowmanville resident Jan Oegema, is a depiction of the section of Highway 401 between Toronto and CFB Trenton, which carried fallen servicemen between the airbase and coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. During the conflict, which claimed 158 Canadian lives, thousands of residents regularly lined up by the side of the highway and on overpasses as the convoys carrying the bodies of those soldiers made their way between the two points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Next of Kin canvas and Highway of Heroes recognize not only the service of (Canadian Armed Forces) personnel, but also the special burden borne by loved ones back home,â&#x20AC;? said James Whitham, the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director general, in a media release. The museum will also host four pieces of nose art, painted onto serving CH-146 Griffon helicopters by Cpl. Richard Aucoin in 2011. Each of the four works â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on loan by the Department of National Defence â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is unique in colour, style and intention. Griffon helicopters served increasingly busy roles in Afghanistan, often being used as armed escorts for the larger, troop-carrying Chinook helicopters.

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

The Canadian War Museum has added new artifacts relating to the Afghanistan campaign that are currently on display. The displays were opened on May 9, the same day as the National Day of Honour for those who served in the conflict.

Twice the Fun for online business in 2014

E

veryone likes to play games. The desire to unravel puzzles, solve mysteries and be the first to get to an agreed upon finish line is something we seem to be born with. In the 21st century there are all kinds of games to be played. The computer has replaced the way we do so many things from writing a letter, checking the weather and of course enjoy our games. The new ways are not all bad, just different. Given an opportunity to experience playing a real and not virtual board game, most people come away with good feelings. It is all part of enjoying playing with others. As children we experience the feeling of togetherness, having fun with our friends. Twice the Fun Games captures the essence of playing board games, card games and puzzles. The owner and operator of the online business in North Grenville, Boris Lysynski has a foot in two worlds. As a former electronic engineer he can appreciate the thrill of the virtual gaming world but as a life-time board game fanatic he also enjoys the different experience of facing an opponent in a live game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a gamer,â&#x20AC;? said Lysynski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want people to sit down together and have fun together.â&#x20AC;? In keeping with

his interest and enthusiasm for board games Lysynski is part of the North Grenville Gamerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Group, NG3. While Boris is growing Twice the Fun Games he is also sharing the fun with his neighbours. As part of the NG3, he has helped organize the first annual gaming convention â&#x20AC;&#x153;CoyoteConâ&#x20AC;? for North Grenville. In cooperation with Kemptville Campus, the NG3 will be hosting CoyoteCon on June 21. The event will be held at the W.B. George Centre. The room will be divided in two, explained Lysynski. One side will be ongoing live board games and on the other side will be sponsoring vendors. The always-popular Tri-Game-A-Thon typically sees 25-30 players and showcases: Ticket to Ride; Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne. The storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online presence has grown and now he feels it is time for a storefront. Twice the Fun Games has found a home in the lower level of the former Giant Tiger building across from B&H Grocers in Old Town Kemptville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be joining up with the Kemptville Crafters Market this May,â&#x20AC;? said Lysynski. Twice the Fun Games will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the market. Twice the Fun Games can be found at www.twicethefungames. ca or for more information, call 613-702-6620.

Doors Open to see 130 buildings unlocked Bike tour of embassies added to popular free event Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

Community - People wanting to peek inside some of Ottawa’s closed-off embassies can hop on a bicycle and explore some sites on two wheels next month. For the first time, Ottawa Cycling Tours is offering a bicycle tour of embassies that are welcoming visitors as part of the 2014 edition of Doors Open, taking place June 7 and 8. The city-organized event, now in its 13th year, will make 130 public and private buildings in Ottawa open for viewing for free. In addition to offering a bike tour between embassies, Ottawa Cycling Tours is planning to put together selfguided tour maps to provide participants with pre-made Doors Open itineraries. Andrea Recht, owner of Ottawa Cycling Tours, said the maps should be available at Rent-

ABike, located at 2 Rideau St. where it meets Colonel By Drive. “I’ve always participated in Doors Open,” Recht said. “(On a bike) you’re outside the whole time and you can see how things are connected.” The bike tour and the entire Doors Open event will take place rain or shine. People can register for the bike tour by visiting ottawacyclingtours.com. There will be a yet-to-be-determined fee for the tour, as well as $32 for a bike rental if required. Recht is planning to partner with RentABike to offer bicycle rentals for people who don’t have their own. Participants who would rather travel by more than two wheels can hop on an OC Transpo shuttle bus to travel between sites. New to the list of locations this year is OC Transpo’s integrated operations centre; the Children’s Hospital of

Eastern Ontario, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year; the Ottawa Jewish Archives and the Embassy of Japan. Other locations include: government buildings, private businesses, artists’ studios and places of worship, all in both modern and heritage styles of architecture. Two popular destinations last year – the United States Embassy and the city traffic operations centre – are back on the list. Participants can tour historical relics at museums like the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum or tour scientific marvels like Canadian Space Services and CanmetENERGY, Natural Resources Canada’s cleanenergy facility. A full list of participating buildings is available at ottawa.ca, or you can pick up a Doors Open event guide at any Bridgehead and at most Subway locations. The guides will also be dis-

Outdoor theatre looking for summer volunteers Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Arts - Students looking to pick up some extra volunteer hours this summer need to look only as far as their local park. Odyssey Theatre is offering students the opportunity to volunteer at the city’s outdoor theatre in Strathcona Park this summer for a variety of positions. According to general manager Dana Uzarevic, regardless of any particular student’s interest, there is a job at the production house for them. “There are many different opportunities,” Uzarevic said. “It always helps to get a few sentences to let us know what their interest is and we try to match it.” Everything from guest services to production is available, Uzarevic added, and there is typically no time limits to volunteering -- meaning theatre lovers can stay all summer, or those who are simply want to get their feet wet only have to do a two shifts of four hours. “We have volunteer who do come every night and it becomes part of their summer. We also have many returning volunteers, quite a few of them,” she said. Uzarevic credits the interest in their volunteer program to the company’s outdoor, central location, which she said she believes offers students the

P

opportunity to learn something new and enjoy the outdoors. For those who aren’t so keen on the outdoors, or spending time seating patrons, there is administrative work such as fielding phone calls, Uzarevic said. APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

There is also an additional way for young theatre enthusiasts to become involved. Through the company’s Youth Apprenticeship Program, students get to experience a professional theatre company first hand. From stage directing, administration, acting and front of the house experience, these youth get the chance to learn as much as they can from Odyssey during the summer months. The program, which accepted applications up until May 15, Uzarevic said, is definitely a unique way for students to learn the tricks of the trade. “You don’t have to be a theatre professional, but just have to have a love for theatre or at least want to explore it,” she said. Uzarevic is in charge of the application process and encourages students to apply. “Even though the deadline has passed, I will still look at the applications,” she said. “If we get a candidate that is really strong, we will make room for them in the program.

SUBMITTED

Students seeking volunteer opportunities can learn every aspect of theatre life this summer at Odyssey Theatre. I would also like to stress how much fun and what a fantastic experience it becomes.” Those who attend the program receive an end-of-the-summer honorarium for the work. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up as early in the summer as they can, but the company also accepts midsummer applications too. For more information on the stu-

dent programs offered at Odyssey, visit odysseytheatre.ca. Tickets are on sale now for The Odyssey Theatre s 28th season of Theatre Under the Stars. This year s show, The Financier (Turcaret) by AlainRené Lesage, will run from July 24 to August 24, Tuesday through to Sunday at 8 p.m. with pay-what-you-can matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. All performances take place in

Strathcona Park. Tickets can be purchased for $9 to $24 online, by phone at 613-2328407, or email boxoffice@odysseytheatre.ca. Tickets will also be available at the door for $26. Tickets are also on sale for Odyssey Theatre’s youth matinees production, the Wind in the Willows by the Rag and Bone Puppet Theatre will take place on Aug. 6 and 13.

12 Stirling proposal deferred at committee Community Association to host meeting concerning condo proposal Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - The city’s planning committee voted on May 13 to defer a rezoning application for the redevelopment of the Odawa Native Friendship Centre site. The plan, which involves the conversion of the existing schoolhouse at 12 Stirling Ave. to a condo development

including a 17-storey residential tower, will be decided by committee on May 27. A community meeting arranged by the Hintonburg Community Association will discuss the proposal on May 22. A previous proposal that contained a 19-storey tower was put on hold last year as the community put the finishing touches on the Scott Street Community Develop-

ment Plan. The appearance of the latest proposal caught the community off-guard, and the community association rushed to hold it off. “We quickly reached the councilor (Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs) and asked if she could move to defer it,” said association president Matt Whitehead. “She was able to make that happen.” Whitehead said previous talks with the development’s proponent ended with them

saying “they were going back to the drawing board.” Apparently, a clerical error resulted in the community association not being notified of the new application, and thus they were unable to submit comments. The Scott Street CDP lists sites along the roadway east of Parkdale as maxing out at six storeys, though the 12 Stirling site would likely handle more. The city has past stated that a height of nine storeys would be appropriate for the site,

given its size. Whitehead said the community was waiting for the proponents of 12 Stirling to submit in order to build that site’s zoning into the CDP. “We’re wonder in why – if they already own the land – didn’t they get (the zoning) built into the CDP/” said Whitehead. The May 22 community meeting, to be held at the Hintonburg Community Centre from 6 to 8 p.m. will bring together city staff and the developer to discuss the proposal.

Community benefits: too little, too late? Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Two years of the city collecting “community benefit” payments from developers has left many disappointed. For local residents and for some of the councillors who represent them, the money coming in isn’t enough. Most developers aren’t exactly keen on the extra fee – or more specifically, how it is calculated. Even city planners are disappointed by how few of the rezonings the city approved since the spring of 2012 have qualified for the extra fee, which can be put towards small local infrastructure projects in the hopes of making an area more “livable” when hundreds of new people make their homes in new buildings – usually condo towers. Only six developments qualified for the extra payments since Ottawa enacted a policy to allow it to take advantage of Section 37 of the Ontario Planning Act, which provides a way for municipalities to collect extra money from developers in exchange for more lenient zoning so they can construct larger, denser buildings. The planning department had promised a full-blown review of the policy a year after it went into effect. Two years later, there still weren’t enough qualifying developments to do a review or make changes, so the department issued a memo instead. “There simply aren’t enough examples to come to

a conclusion on what works,” said Michael Mizzi, chief of development review for the city. The review has been rescheduled until the beginning of 2015. For Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs, it’s the money that’s not enough, even though her ward is home to the largest community benefits deal so far: $3.43 million for a planned Claridge development at 1040 Somerset St. W. One big problem in her ward is that residents think every development will qualify and result in community benefits. That’s not the case – the calculation is complicated, but only rezonings that result in a relatively large uptick in density and therefore value would qualify. Still, Hobbs said the payments are “like getting money for nothing.” “It’s a bit of a gift,” she said. It can put a dent in the long list of projects that residents are asking for in Kitchissippi ward: pedestrian and cycling improvements, more green spaces or even a fund for community housing. But it’s only a small dent, Hobbs said. Adding a water fountain at Byron Linear Park alone will cost approximately $15,000, Hobbs said. With price tags like that, the community benefit money doesn’t go too far, Hobbs said. CALCULATING BENEFITS

Capital Coun. David Chernushenko had a different take on why the payments weren’t enough. He said he was sur-

SUBMITTED

This proposed Claridge tower at 1040 Somerset St. W. was assessed the largest community benefit payment so far in Ottawa’s two years of collecting the money. prised to learn that the average amount of money the city gets through Section 37 agreements is 28 per cent of the uplift in value from the rezoning. “We certainly had higher hopes,” said Chernushenko, calling the percentage “disappointing.” “Someone is making a lot of profit out of it and we’re only negotiating crumbs from them,” he said. But Mizzi said between 20 and 30 per cent of the uplift

value is a standard amount to expect for a community benefit payment. City planners don’t have a specific target to meet, but that range is generally where the negotiations with developers land, he said. “Success isn’t measure on your cash contribution alone,” Mizzi said. For instance, in the case of a Domicile building at 514-532 Rochester St., city planners negotiated to include threebedroom units in the building

– something the city wants, since it allows families to live in the urban area in a range of housing styles and costs. Including those units meant Domicile paid less for the community benefit payment, Mizzi said, but those units are of huge value to the city and the community. Linda Hoad, a community association member and activist from Hintonburg, said the negotiations allow too much flexibility to reduce the developer’s payments. “It’s hazy to me and wide enough to drive a bus through in terms of how it’s calculated,” Hoad said. Neil Malhotra of Claridge Homes says he sees the new fee as a cost of doing business. In fact, he said his company sees it as a positive thing because it helps Claridge contribute to improving the downtown and making the areas around its buildings attractive for potential homebuyers. Martin Chenier of Brigil had a different view. He said the fee is another way the city is squeezing developers. From rising development charges to the need to provide parkland or open space, those additional costs like community benefits payments end up trickling down to homebuyers, Chenier said. “We’re just basically told that’s what it’s going to be. There is no way for us to say is that the right value,” he said. “They should make it a basic fee and not call it a negotiation.” Before any of those negotia-

tions begin, the ward councillor is supposed to consult with residents on what they’d like to see as community benefits if and when any Section 37 money comes down the pipes. From her experience and discussions at the Federation of Citizens Associations, a local gathering of community group representatives, the consultations with councillors aren’t necessarily happening, Hoad said. She said the councillors should have to provide a list back to the community of what they’ve heard and determined are the priorities. In Kitchissippi, Hobbs has decided the best way to do that is rely on the improvements and benefits listed in the six community design plans drafted for the ward. Those plans had broad consultation and represent the best consensus on what the community wants, Hobbs said. But as the city begins to act on promises of “certainty” in land-use planning made by Mayor Jim Watson and planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume, some are wondering if drafting the Section 37 policy was worth it. Taking advantage of Section 37 relies on uncertainty – it is the result of a developer’s request for something that in no way matches what neighbours knew to expect on a site based on the zoning and sometimes, the city’s Official Plan – the bible of how the city will develop and grow.

Marathon organizers expecting spike in economic spinoffs Record number of runners to participate in Race Weekend events Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

Sports - Downtown Ottawa will transform into a sea of running shoes this weekend, which is good news for local businesses. A full lineup of road races on May 24 and 25 is expected to draw nearly 48,000 runners, about 4,000 more than last year. With such a large influx of participants at Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend events, organizers are expecting that to translate into a boost in economic spinoffs for the city. “You can walk into any hotel in Ottawa and try to get a hotel room on Saturday night,” said race director John Halvorsen. “It’s not going to work out. “My understanding is the Chateau Laurier has a waiting list of over 60 people trying to get in there,” he said. “So it’s great that way for the city.” A study done on the 2012 race weekend, which drew 42,000 runners, revealed the running events had produced an estimated $28-million windfall for the capital.

No data is available from last year’s race weekend, but organizers are hoping a partial study on the upcoming race weekend, billed as Canada’s largest multi-day running event, will show an upswing in the economic tally, Halvorsen said. “So it’s going to grow at least another 10 per cent” he said. “I’m certainly expecting it’s over $30 (million).” Organizers are optimistic the momentum will continue. “Hopefully it can stay as large as it is and we continue to have an economic impact,” the director said. While few Canadian marathons sell out, all available race bibs for the Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon on May 25 were snapped up in January. This year, the marathon will see

What’s happening • The 10-, five- and two-kilometre races will be held May 24. • The marathon, half-marathon, wheelchair marathon and kids’ marathon take place May 25.

7,100 registrations, while just more than 6,000 registered for last year’s race. The half-marathon, which also kicks off May 25, sold out in November with 13,300 registrants, two months earlier than the year before, which netted 500 fewer entries. This year’s marathon is proving to be extremely popular, likely because some participants are drawn to the uniqueness of completing the 40th running of the marathon, while others have registered because they enjoy running in this city, particularly because of its clean

air, said Halvorsen. “So we’re sort of curious to see if that trend is going to continue,” he said of the boost in participants. Still, despite people jockeying for race bibs, organizers are not planning on growing the races much larger in the coming years. “We’re sort of hitting the point now where we’re limited by the spaces that we have in the start-finish, rather than on the courses,” Halvorsen said.

Music festivals possible at new grounds Jeff Mackey

Sports - The equestrian community in Ottawa wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to hold their horses much longer. The Wesley Clover Foundation now leases the west-end Greenbelt equestrian park form the NCC, it was previously managed by the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting, there is a real change coming,â&#x20AC;? said Karen Sparks, executive director of Wesley Clover Parks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of potential here â&#x20AC;&#x201D;with the city running this land for so long, they just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite capitalize on it.â&#x20AC;? The $20-million initiative to redevelop the equestrian park and campground properties by Wesley Clover, which is run by business magnate Terry Matthews, will run for over twenty years and also includes the creation of the Ian Millar School of Horsemanship, named after the 10-time Canadian Olympian. Though plans for the grounds

In addition to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;worldclassâ&#x20AC;? equestrian event campus, horsemanship school and new show ring building with sheltered public seating, they are also planning on adding eight full-sized grass sports fields, a new, man-made lake at the cen-

tre of the property, and a forest school focused on early childhood education. Wesley Clover plans on making the grounds an Ottawa destination, not just for equestrian events but for large sporting events and music festivals as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been in talks with some festivals,â&#x20AC;? said Sparks, whose Matthewsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daughter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who are in that industry

look at this as a really nice site to have that weekend-long festival feel.â&#x20AC;? The electronic music festival Escapade was mentioned as a possible event for the grounds. Currently the grounds are abuzz with activity. Fresh coats of paint are being put on the building and renovations inside and out are underway. Rubber matting has been added to, and rotting wood removed from the horse stalls, and new paddocks have been put up around the grounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The equestrian community always saw this as an untapped jewel and I think they are excited to see what we can do with the place,â&#x20AC;? said Sparks, who added that having a reputable horsemanship school is good for growing an equestrian community in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. The school is not yet running classes but expects to be functional this summer. Some students may one day be able to compete on the site in a major competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have this site that is built to host international horse shows but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually have an international horse show,â&#x20AC;? said Sparks. The venue is already hosting equestrian events including an international dressage show on May 28 and 29. The show was an annual event when the park was run by the city but was on hiatus while the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future was in question last year. Meanwhile the adjacent campground, which also used to be run by the city, are getting a shot in the arm as well with the addition of multiple yurts â&#x20AC;&#x201D;round, family-sized tentsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; for activities added around the grounds as well as new walking and biking trails. While the City of Ottawa signs still sit in front of the grounds, new Wesley Clover signage is on the way. The parks will be open to the public throughout this summer.

Members of the Kanata Sailing Club help to prepare for the sailing season on May 3. The club held an open house, and plans on expanding its sailing course programming for youths this year.

West-end club offering biggest junior sailing program yet Organization strikes new partnership with Girl Guides Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Sports - The Kanata Sailing Club is encouraging more kids to experience life on the water by offering its biggest program yet through partnerships with the YMCA-YWCA National Capital Region and Girl Guides of Canada. The club, located at 1620 Sixth Line Rd., hosted an open house on May 3, signalling the start of the sailing season in the upcoming weeks for its 120 members and the community. The club is experiencing a rise in popularity, as participation in the club seems to remain tied to the economy, said the club’s commodore, Mike Thompson. The idea that sailing is a sport for the rich is still around, said Thompson, and it often poses a problem for the club to attract more members. “If you ever mention that you own a boat, instantly a 60foot yacht pops into people’s mind where you are drinking champagne and eating Grey Poupon on the deck,” said Thompson. “You know, that’s just not what’s going on.” One of the club’s main goals in its more than 30 years in existence has been to remain affordable, said Thompson. Yearly rates for

membership run from $110 for a shore-only individual membership to $485 for a family membership. “It’s less expensive to sail in Kanata than it would be to cross country ski for the winter,” he said. The club has also been introducing more and more children to sailing, with a partnership through the YMCA. “We’ve got the biggest program with the Y going that we’ve ever had this year and probably next year we will be bigger again,” said Thompson. For the past four years, the club has partnered with the YMCA, offering day camps in July and August for kids between the ages of 10 and 13. The program began as a two-week endeavour, but has now grown to four weeks, with 60 spots for youth sailors. Thompson hopes to expand the program still further, to run throughout all of July and August. It currently costs $250 per child. “We would have to have more instructors in place, and we would probably have to have a bigger fleet,” he said. The club is starting a new partnership with the Girl Guides of Canada, offering the same program it offers to the YMCA, called Can Sail 1. “Basically the program is

about getting comfortable with the boat, learning how to rig it, getting out on the water, not being afraid if a little bit of water goes over the side and getting it to go where you want to go, but mostly it’s just about having a great time,” said Thompson. But the club is also considering offering the more advanced Can Sail 2 program for teens and pre-teens, and hopes to gauge the public’s interest. “That’s targeted towards actually making you a competent sailor where you can actually go out in a boat by yourself, be the skipper, and have a great day on the water,” said Thompson. Thompson said he hopes to offer that program to youths who have already gone through the Can Sail 1 course and want to continue. “We definitely want to probe the interest in the community,” he said. The sailing season is nearly upon us, with the sailing club’s classes beginning sometime in the next week or two. The first major event for the club will be a provincewide “Get Into Sailing” day scheduled for June 10, though the exact date may change. The club will have another open house and take visitors out sailing.

At this time of year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual to see teeny bunnies or squirrels wandering around alone. While stumbling upon a baby animal usually brings out the maternal instincts in all of us, spotting a baby animal all alone doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an orphan. Many wildlife parents leave their young alone during the day, sometimes for long periods. The mother is usually nearby and quite conscious of her young.

West-end youth take hold of little-known musical adam.kveton@metroland.com

Arts - There is no taking musical theatre away from the kids in Kanata Youth On Stage, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop The Grunch from trying to do just that. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical production from KYOS (pronounced â&#x20AC;&#x153;chaos,â&#x20AC;? and for good reason says the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-ordinator), is turning away from their years of staging Disney princess musicals. Instead, the group found inspiration from Dr. Seuss, with a The Grinch inspired production called The Grunch. But instead of trying to take away Christmas, The Grunch tries to ruin his schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical. Taking something as beloved as a musical from these hardy drama folk may prove to be too difďŹ cult for The Grunch, but for at least two of KYOSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cast, he nearly succeeds. Grade 12 students Ella Schmidtlein and Kaitlin Williams are in their last year of the youth program, having

think, if done right, it can be very impressive vocally, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited to see the audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction to us kind of pushing the bar a bit.â&#x20AC;? Ella, who plays the enthusiastic organizer of the musical named Harper, said that while the theatre groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular audience may miss their Disney princess productions, she said The Grunch still keeps the focus on kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be different, especially because some of our audience that has been established has been a lot of little girls and they want to come see the princess and take a picture with them after,â&#x20AC;? said Ella. But, with fun songs and dances and a good message to cap it all off, the show will still be fun for kids, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show, and people know the story of The Grinch and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s similar to that.â&#x20AC;?

be a really good show and a good send-off,â&#x20AC;? said Kaitlin Williams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just really, really enjoying that this is the last one.â&#x20AC;? Kaitlin described the show as a bit of musical inception, as the musical is about students writing and performing a musical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ironic,â&#x20AC;? she said with a

hands-on approach for the cast and crew, all of them 12 to 18 years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our stage manager this time is actually a teen, our lighting director is a teen, our vocal director is a teen,â&#x20AC;? said youth program co-ordinator Andrew Williams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So my role is getting less and less and less,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eventually I just want to show up and watch the shows.â&#x20AC;? The climax of every season is the youth-run musical, meant to give the young actors a chance to show what they can do under their own steam. This year, that meant ďŹ&#x201A;exing their musical muscle even more than usual. Kaitlin, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocal director, has been busy adding harmonies to the basic melodies that came with the musical for the cast to try out, and the result has been a better, more demanding performance, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve pushed them a little more than they are used to,â&#x20AC;? said Kaitlin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some surprises in the music,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I

Local minister was a bit like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories mer the sweat poured off his face in little rivulets. He frowned a lot, and I always thought he was angry with the lot of us, or that he knew that some of us had committed some horrible sin. To emphasize a point, he pounded the rail of the pulpit with his bible that I was sure would one day ďŹ&#x201A;y out of his hand and hit me square on the head since we sat in the front pew, a few feet away. His wife, whom Mother said was a saint, sat ramrod straight, looking neither left nor right. Through perfect planning, Sunday school always ended at the exact time the last hymn was being sung in the church. Then we children marched back into the church, standing at the door where we were expected to

shake hands with the Minister. This scared the living starch out of me, convinced that he could read my mind and he would know every evil thought I had ever had in my head about Marguirite, and know ever sin I had ever committed. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get in the buggy and get back home to the farm. And often then, I would see another side to our Minister. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure if it was part of his duties as our spiritual leader, or if he just liked a good meal occasionally, but we could always count on a pastoral visit at least once every two weeks when the summer weather came. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t own a car, but he did have a buggy, and an old nag of a horse that was much like our poor old Harry with the heaves. You could have

walked in our lane faster than the Ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horse pulling the buggy. And he always came at our dinner time at noon. Mother would pump his hand, welcome him in, and my sister Audrey, without even being asked, would scrunch up the plates on the table, and make room for another place. Mother made no effort to tidy things up, or make the meal more fancy. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even get out the dishes that had come in puffed wheat. The only change was Mother sat between my sister Audrey and me, leaving the end of the table for the Minister. Father, of course, sat where he always did, at the other end. And instead of Father saying grace, the Minister, on Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s invitation said the blessing, which was long and purposeful. Then I would see an entirely different man from the one I saw in the Lutheran church on Sunday. He and Father told jokes, slapping the table with the palm of their hands, and all the time, he was amply lading his plate with seconds and even third helpings of everything before

him, which pleased Mother beyond words. Even a visitor the stature of the Minister, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop Father from pouring out his tea into his saucer to cool it off, and then drinking it. And as soon as the meal was over, Father got up from the table, Minister or not, and headed back out to the ďŹ elds. Always, I knew what was going to happen next. Audrey would be sent to the smoke house and the chicken coop. She would come back with a roast and a link or two of sausages, and a small basket of fresh eggs. Everett would, without asking, have cornered a fowl, pushed it squawking into a grain sack, and everything would be put in the Ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s buggy. The Minister would pump Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand, rufďŹ&#x201A;e my hair, tell Audrey again how she was growing into a ďŹ ne young woman, and my three brothers that he would see them in church, and then with great effort he would climb into the buggy, and the old horse without any direction from his owner, would turn in the yard and head out the lane.

Audrey and I would help Mother clean up the kitchen and she would tell us how poor the Minister was, and how little he was paid, and that often he and his wife didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough money to buy food, and how they would rely on the generosity of the members of the Lutheran church to survive. I knew the Depression was all around us, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anyone out in the country who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough food for their table. I would watch the buggy disappear into the farthest reaches of the lane, and I would think again how the Minister was like two different people. The stern, no-nonsense man in the pulpit on a Sunday, and then there was the man who could laugh and mingle with the common folk around a kitchen table.

he Minister, I thought, was like two different people. I had an unbelievable fear of him when he was in church delivering what seemed to be an endless sermon with words that were completely above my head. I had no idea what he was talking about, and when we left the service to go to our Sunday school class, I lived in dread that the Sunday school teacher would ask me what I had learned that day from the sermon. Thankfully she was high on the Beatitudes and the Psalms, and that was usually what our lesson was about. The Minister was a whale of a man, and when he walked down the middle of the church to get to the pulpit, his shoes squeaked like fury, which Emerson said meant they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been paid for. How he knew that bit of information was beyond me. By the time the Minister had climbed into the pulpit, which was a round carved wood affair high above the pews, he was panting like he was going to take his last breath, and winter and sum-

Major school bus operator ending service across city has members in Ottawa. Smaller companies don’t have the ability to refuse the contracts. “These operators, if they walk away, they’ve committed suicide,” Cameron said. “They have one customer typically and it means their mortgage. The Ministry of Education has absolutely destabilized this industry to the point where it’s almost not even viable.” For the coming school year, the Ministry of Education is providing “a projected transportation allocation of $883.5 million that includes a two-per-cent increase to help boards manage increased costs,” said ministry spokesperson Gary Wheeler. “This formula is used for all 72 boards across the province.” But the fragility in the industry is about more than the bottom line, because it is jeopardizing student safety, Cameron said. “Drivers are the single most important safety feature on the bus and so what you want is long-standing drivers who know their kids, know their routes and know the procedures,” she said. “What this kind of instability does is it drives the long-standing drivers away,” she said, adding that high driver turnover is likely to ramp up due to an unstable industry. “They’re already getting paid minimum wage, and if you’ve got to start tightening the belt even more then you’re not going to pay them for things you used to pay them for.” The Ministry of Education remains committed to helping school boards provide “safe, effective and efficient” busing for students, Wheeler said.

Stock Transportation and the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority could not agree on a contract for the upcoming school year, bringing an end to the company’s services on 193 English public and Catholic school routes in the city. students in Osgoode and Metcalfe, and take on routes in Orléans, while Campeau Bus Lines will take on 111 routes in central and eastern Ottawa and Barrhaven. The authority has also re-signed First Student Canada to provide school buses on another 350 routes. Stock’s departure shouldn’t worry parents of children on the affected routes, said Vicky Kyriaco, general manager of the transportation authority. “We are working well with Stock and the operators to transition as many drivers from Stock’s employ to the new operators, so in September we expect that the same driver will be operating the same route,” she said. “It’ll just be a different name on

the bus.” The authority’s initial contract extension offer was for two per cent (for one year) and that reflects the (Ontario government’s) grant for student needs,” said Kyriaco. That increase was available from the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, though “they’re still in a deficit situation,” she said, adding there was no increase available through the Ottawa Catholic School Board. “So we have some financial limitations that we have to operate within,” said Kyriaco, who declined to discuss contract details, citing confidentiality issues. But the association representing smaller, independent school bus operators says the Ministry of Educa-

tion is creating instability in the industry, the reason why Stock should be applauded for walking away from the contract offer, and “finally saying, as a company, (that) we cannot operate in this market, these rates will not allow us to run a safe operation,” said Karen Cameron, executive director of the Independent School Bus Operators Association, which

News - Despite the imminent departure of one of Ottawa’s largest school bus companies from the city, thousands of English public and Catholic school students won’t be stranded come September, says the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority. Stock Transportation, which has operated in the region for at least 23 years, and the authority couldn’t come to an agreement late last month on a second one-year extension of a five-year contract. The authority manages contracts on behalf of school boards, which, in turn, receive funding from Ontario’s Ministry of Education. The authority offered a two-percent increase for English public school busing services and no increase for Catholic transportation. But Stock asked for a nearly seven-per-cent increase for the upcoming school year to “attract and retain the best possible professional school bus drivers,” said Molly Hart, Chicago-based spokeswoman for National Express Corporation, which owns Stock Transportation. The authority refused, and the bus company served its 280 Ottawa staff, including support staff, safety and maintenance personnel and 265 drivers, on May 5 with layoff notices effective June 30. “Minimum wage in Ontario is increasing by seven per cent alone and the gap between minimum wage and the wage paid to our Ottawa drivers has been shrinking steadily over the past several years,” Hart said. “And our drivers would have received a substantial increase had we been able to reach an agreement.” The increase would also have helped offset the costs of purchasing, operating, maintaining and fuelling the buses, Hart said, noting a 51per-cent hike in gas prices in Canada since 2009, and a 25-per-cent spike in the purchase price of new buses in the last 10 years. “The operating environment in Ottawa has become too challenging due to the severe disconnect between what operators require to deliver service and what the Ottawa Student Transportation Association can pay for these services,” Hart said, adding that though Stock is closing up shop in Ottawa in June, the company is not shutting the door completely on future business opportunities in the city. After Stock declined the offer, the transportation authority signed contracts with three new operators which will take over Stock’s 193 routes. Direct Transportation Logistics will provide wheelchair buses, Roxborough Bus Lines will transport

Sensplex-type arena possible for south Ottawa Large, district-level recreation facility would serve Leitrim, Greely area Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city is considering whether partnering with a company is the best way to get a new recreational facility built in Riverside South. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches has been championing the idea of studying a public-private partnership for a new rec centre, which got the finance and economic development committee’s nod on May 6. The centre would be a larger, district-level recreational facility that would serve the larger area, including Leitrim and Greely. The area will become home to thousands more people before the city gets around to building the rec centre, which is in the community design plan for the area, Desrroches said. “It’s still several years out.

We’re seeing a situation where the growth is putting pressure on existing facilities,” he said. “This is a way I think we can get going on a facility sooner rather than later,” the councillor said. A recreational facility of that scale could cost more than $60-million to build, Desroches said. “It’s a big-ticket item,” he said. Partnering with a private company also alleviates some of the ongoing budget pressure of operating a recreational facility, since the partner company helps take on that responsibility, he said. “If we want to try to deal with the pressures on our budgets, we should be looking at innovative ways to deliver city services,” he said. There are already three similar “P3” recreational facilities in Ottawa: the Bell Sensplex

in Kanata, the Cavanagh Sensplex in West Carleton and the Richcraft Sensplex in the east end, set to open this August. The partnerships are innovative, Desroches said. They offer programming and ice availability from everything from little league ringette to men’s and women’s hockey leagues. Desroches said the city has seen success through those partnerships with the Capital Sports Management Group, which is owned by Senators Sports and Entertainment. But if the city chose to pursue a P3 to build a new rec centre, it would go through a competitive bidding process. “It’s a little early to identify a partner,” Desroches said. “I think we need to see if this is a concept that has viability. I think it does. Given the success we’ve seen in other areas, the model should work in south Ottawa.” It’s unlikely the city would find a partner willing to help fund building a pool, which is a costly endeavour, Desroches

Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches is hoping for a new public-private partnership recreation centre for Riverside South – similar to this one, the Richcraft Sensplex, being built in the city’s east end. said. The facility would likely have at least two ice rinks – or more, if the partner company was willing to put up the money. The city hasn’t made detailed plans of what the facility could include. Residents in the community – especially fellow hockey parents – have been asking

Desroches about when a new facility might be coming. The area’s development is now at a stage where the need is becoming more urgent, Desroches said. “The goal is really to build a community that’s sustainable, (so) that we have the services and the facilities within

the community so that people don’t have to travel outside the community to do this,” he said. “My first priority when I was elected was to deal with the roads and the transit and the bridge. Now it’s time to start on the next chapter, which is the recreational services.”

Canadians injured in Afghan war arrive during Soldier On relay Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

News - Nineteen injured participants of the Afghanistan war arrived at the Royal Canadian Legion Dominion Command in Kanata on May 7, finishing up the fourth day of the Soldier On Afghanistan Relay. The group, composed of 16 military members, two RCMP members and one civilian government employee, began the relay in Trenton, Ont., and finished on May 9 on Parliament Hill. But not before being greeted by legion members, family, friends and other members of the public in Kanata. All 19 participants of the relay were injured during the war effort in Afghanistan, though not all as soldiers. They arrived having overcome countless obstacles – some of which are part of the relay, and some that have become a part of life. Scars and missing limbs start to tell the story of what several of the relay runners have gone through, while others’ injuries are less visible. Sgt. Dan Matthews is one of those last few, invisibly injured by their experience in combat. He came home with post traumatic stress disorder, like many others. But just because he has the same injury as some of the other relay runners does not mean they are going through the same thing, he said. “It’s really different for each person,” he said of his experience running the relay. “For me, I’ve been carrying the memories of two friends that I lost on a patrol that I was on,” said Matthews. “Along the way I’ve had them in my head saying, ‘Just put one foot in front of the other to get home. Get your ass home.’” For Matthews, that’s in Ottawa’s east end. While the Soldier On relay is supposed to do a lot of things like provide a healing process, give civilians a chance to show their gratitude and put a spotlight on Canadians injured in war, Matthews’ goal for the relay is simple. “I’m just trying to get home, and bring a few friends along the way,” he said. Matthews was diagnosed with PTSD in 2003 – an injury he sustained while out on patrol in Kabul that same year, he said. During a two vehicle patrol in unarmoured Iltis Jeeps, Matthews’ section commanders’ vehicle drove over a double stack of anti-tank mines. Sgt. Robert Short and Matthews’ friend, Cpl. Robby Beerenfenger, died in the explosion. They were the first Canadians to be killed by enemy fire in Afghanistan. “At the time we didn’t really know that they were dead, so me and my Master Cpl. Jay Hamilton plodded out into two unknown mine fields to

try and save them,” said Matthews. “We were able to save the driver, T.J. Sterling.” Matthews didn’t think anything of his actions at the time. “I was just shutting down and doing what I was trained to do,” he said. But with sleepless nights and nightmares pursuing him back in Canada, Matthews’ wife suggested he should get some help. “I’ve had demons and everything else that I’ve had to deal with for 10

years, and it has been a 10 year fight trying to get to where I am,” said Matthews. Now, Matthews hopes the relay finish line will signal the end of a chapter in his life. “It’s the start for me to recreate myself as I move into civilian life,” he said, intending to be medically released from the military. With his track laid out for him, Matthews said he hopes to recreate his life and truly be home again.

Residents cast critical eye on Winston Square public art Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Four proposals were shortlisted by the city, but only one public art installation will grace a new public space being built in Westboro. The Winston Place Plaza will see green walls, open space and seating areas added to where the dead end of Winston Avenue North meets the Richmond Road sidewalk, but it will also feature a new LED light fixture designed to illuminate and stimulate. A May 7 open house at the Westboro Seniors Centre brought residents into contact with the creators of four proposals for that functional art installation. Submissions to the city’s public art program were designed with exact criteria for weight and size in mind. The winner of competition will paid using development charges collected from projects in the ward. Each installation will cast the same amount of light from a 100-watt LED bulb. Karen Phillips Curran and David Ivens proposed an out-

door chandelier to cast a glow on the seating area, while the team of Caleb Rempel and Cara Tierney proposed an aluminum bird’s nest to encapsulate the light. The latter duo brought in one of the lights that will be used for the installation. LED lights use less electricity than typical sodium vapour lamps and last longer. Adrian Gollner and Joanna Swim submitted a powdercoated, red-painted aluminum work that incorporates the shapes of local wildlife, flora and geographical aspects of the Kitchissippi area. Andrew O’Malley, who submitted a winning public art proposal for the entrance to the Bronson Centre, also answered the call, submitting a design with a celestial theme. O’Malley’s work incorporates a frosted globe surrounded by metallic rings that will reflect and refract light as a viewer moves closer to it. Feedback from residents was collected and will be analyzed by a panel of judges chosen by the public art program.

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

The four public art proposals shortlisted for consideration for the future Winston Square Plaza in Westboro were judged at a May 7 open house. The winner, which will be announced shortly, will be

required to have their project underway in a hurry, as the

fixture is expected to be in place when construction on

the plaza finished in October of this year.
