Heritage Ottawa lecture to discuss Old Ottawa South club

Wabano centre opens a new revamped teen space and Friday programming. – Page 11

The $70 million represents the cycling projects outlined in the “affordability plan” as part of the city’s transportation master plan update last fall. It includes 40 cycling facility projects to be completed in the first phase before 2019 and 39 projects in the decade after.

News - Ever wondered what women in the late 1800s wore while they played tennis? Or how the court was up kept during the season? Or gazed at the Old Ottawa South tennis club on Cameron Avenue and wondered if anyone famous ever played there? Well on June 18, Heritage Ottawa aims to answer a few of those questions and more with its lecture, There’s No Place Like Home: How a Tennis Club Found and Kept a Home Against All Odds. The lecture will be given by historian and professional writer Janet Uren. Sitting in her heritage home in New Edinburgh, she said she can’t get enough of history – especially institutions, which is something she credits her father with. “I feel like it’s bred in my bones,” she said. The lecture will take place at the Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club, located at 176 Cameron Ave. Uren said without spoiling any of the lecture, it will touch on the history of the moving tennis club originally situated in Centretown, then the Glebe, before finally settling in Old Ottawa South in 1922.

East-west bikeway a priority for 2014: city Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city is touting $70 million it intends to sink into 79 cycling projects over the next 15 years. Councillors received an update on bicycle projects and policies during a transportation committee meeting on June 4.

The financial commitment for the next 15 years is $70 million, or around $4.6 million a year. That’s a reduction from the annual investment in cycling made over this term of council, which has seen the city invest $28 million since the 2010 election, although city staff said another $40 million is intended to be “available” for major cycling projects.

News - Transit will be among the key topics of discussion at this year’s Vanier Community Association annual general meeting. The meeting will take place at the Centre Pauline-Charron on June 16 at 7 p.m. and the association will welcome John Manconi, OC Transpo general manager, as a guest speaker, who will talk about some of the transit issues in the neighborhood. In February, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and the

community association organized a transit meeting where residents discussed topics ranging from bus stops to transit routes and Manconi’s appearance at the meeting a way of following up, said Mike Bulthuis, president of the association. “I think this is a great opportunity for our neighbourhood,” he said. NEW BEGINNINGS

Bulthuis said the board is hoping for a good turnout, both because of the chance to talk transit as well as the opportunity to join the board. There will be five positions open, including the role of president currently held by Bulthuis, who took on the position in 2012.

When it came to electricity, Bagler said the government needs to stop trying to update old plants and instead focus on purchasing cheap electricity from Quebec and reintroduce the home retrofit program. When it comes to handling the city’s traffic issues, Ngam-

“In recent years, we’ve seen the association membership grow – something evident both in numbers and in participation at events and meetings alike -even our monthly Board meetings,” Bulthuis said. “More and more residents are learning about the association. With that growth, there are new ideas and new energy. I’m keen to support that and excited for others to take the lead.” Bulthuis said the highlight for him as both the president and a board member has been getting to know new members of the community, each who bring a different perspective to the neighbourhood. “I’ll miss the regular interaction with many of those connections,” he said. “At the same time, I still love the neighbourhood – and I’m sure I’ll find ways to stay engaged.” When asked how many hours he thinks he or any of the other board members have spent over the past years, he said it was hard to say, but that at any given time, it could be close to 15 hours a month.

Vanier debate touches on transit, trucks and jobs News - Ottawa-Vanier voters had a chance to size up the competition for their support at an all-candidates debate on June 5. Candidates Dave Bagler of the Green Party of Ontario, Progressive Conservative Martin Forget, Hervé Ngamby of the New Democratic Party, Liberal incumbent Madeleine Meilleur, and Phillip Richard of the Libertarian Party all attended the debate at the Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre. The debate was organized by the Coalition of Community Health and Resource Centres of Ottawa and the area community associations and started off with four prepared questions for the candidates: what will their parties do about transit in the city, what promise will their parties make regarding the Ottawa River’s sewage problem, how do the candidates feel about the perception that provincial politicians and politics only show up during elections and what could each candidate do about that and, finally, what would their parties do to alleviate truck traffic downtown. “We need to extend the light

2014 Zoning Review – Phase 2 Notice of Public Information Sessions Why? In 2013 City Council approved new OfďŹ cial Plan policies to create a more liveable Ottawa. To put these policies into action, the Zoning By-law needs to be updated. In some review areas, changes to existing Secondary Plans will also be made to permit the zoning updates to proceed. How will this affect me? Zoning affects how land can be used on both public and private properties. It regulates things like types of housing, shops, schools, industries, as well as building heights and building densities. The right zoning will make sure our streets and neighbourhoods develop in ways that encourage vibrant, liveable places for all to enjoy. Zoning changes will provide greater certainty for residents, developers, businesses and others, about what to expect when it comes to future development in the review areas.

Wynne promises to make Orléans LRT a priority if elected Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Ontario Premier Katheen Wynne travelled to Ottawa’s east end on June 4, making an appearance at Ottawa-Orléans Liberal candidate Marie-France Lalonde’s office. Her hot topic was transit, specifically the light rail transit phase two extension. As she spoke, a map of the extension hung in the background. She promised, if elected, to make funding the second phase a priority. The second phase would bring the LRT to Place

d’Orléans. “Marie-France knows, and I know, how important this project is to the people of Orléans,” Wynne said to Liberal supporters inside the campaign office on Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard. Wynne said the Liberal government will divide $29 billion in transit and infrastructure projects into two different funds that are based on population, stating Ottawa’s gridlock is unacceptable. One fund would be for the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton, the other a $14 billion fund for the rest of the province. She claimed Tim Hudak would fund projects in

the GTA over Ottawa. “(Hudak will) take your LRT and plunk it down as a subway in downtown Toronto,” she said. “There’s already rivalry, do we need more?” Wynne said the Progressive Conservative party will not be committed to transit and infrastructure projects outside of Toronto, and there were “years of neglect” and a backlog of projects when the Liberals came into power. She highlighted Liberal successes through the last term to the crowd of all Liberal supporters and recognized outgoing MPP Phil McNeely who is retiring.

Class Environmental Assessment Cambrian Road Widening (future realigned Greenbank Road to Jockvale Road);

Notice of Completion of Environmental Study Report The Environmental Study Report (ESR) for the Cambrian Road Widening Environmental Assessment (future realigned Greenbank Road to Jockvale Road) has been completed and has been placed on record June 12, 2014 for a 30-day public review period. In March 2013, the City of Ottawa initiated the Environmental Assessment for the proposed widening of Cambrian Road between the future Re-Aligned Greenbank Road and Jockvale Road. This study has been completed in accordance with the requirements for a Schedule “C” project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, 2011, which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Both the Barrhaven South Community Design Plan, (approved by Council in June 2006) and the City of Ottawa Transportation Master Plan (2013) identifies the requirement for widening of Cambrian Road from two to four lanes to accommodate future growth in the community.

She said Marie-France Lalonde is a strong candidate for the area. Lalonde thanked Wynne and said she was inspired by her leadership as she introduced the province’s premier. “I’m proud to serve my community under her leadership,” Lalonde said. Wynne also said the Liberals will fund the Ottawa River Action Plan, which affects Orléans’ Petrie Island. She didn’t elaborate on questions about whether or not she would consider an alliance with the NDP. “I have worked in a minority parliament for the last 16 months. If that’s what the people of Ontario chose, we will continue to work in a minority with whoever the government is,” she said. “Beyond that, the hypotheticals get very abstract.”’ Hudak was in Orléans very early on in the campaign to help open Progressive Conservative candidate Andrew Lister s office. The same day Wynne was at Lalonde’s office, Hudak made an Ottawa appearance at a Nepean town hall.

Quartier Vanier cleans up with new garbage bins Michelle Nash michelle.nash@gmail.com

Community - Garbage along Vanier’s major commercial strips will have a fancy new home thanks to the local business improvement area. This month, Quartier Vanier is installing 31 new waste receptacles along the BIA’s three main streets. Unlike the previous 20 garbage bins placed in the neighbourhood --purchased by the BIA in 2008 for $7,770 - these bins were provided by the city and did not cost the BIA anything. So far, 10 bins have been

installed, with the remainder to be put soon, said the BIA’s operations manager Sam Stevenson. “These cans are more durable and sturdy, aesthetically appealing, and consistent with the streets,� Stevenson said. The city will be emptying the bins and taking care of them, also at no cost to the BIA. Stevenson said the BIA began working with the city last fall on bringing in new receptacles to the area and said he is really pleased with the results. According to Suzan Proulx, chairwoman of the residentled cleaning and beautification

group, Vanier Beautification, the bins were an improvement and she is pleased with their addition to the neighbourhood. Proulx added the look and feel of the new receptacles match the benches along the streets, creating continuity and being attached to the ground, they are more secure. The opening for placing garbage is also larger, improving the odds of garbage making it in to the bins. “I feel that overall this is a positive change and will encourage the general population to be more mindful of their environment,� Proulx said.

Traffic safety 101

T

he traffic issues putting kids at risk at Robert E. Wilson Public School on McArthur Avenue are common across the city. The problem deserves a real solution and parents should support changes to make kids safer. R.E. Wilson is located on a road where drivers are unlikely to slow down to the speed limit. The children attending the school are in kindergarten to Grade 6; not a good mix with fast cars. On top of that risk, parents try to get their cars in and out of the parking lot before the bell rings and after school. Many may be in a rush to get to work each morning. The school’s principal calls the situation dangerous and says there are often near misses. Parents have been asked to drop off kids along the road, right onto paths that link to the school, but many still choose to head into and out of the parking lot. The parent council would like to see a permanent solution: closing the parking lot. Some parents have reportedly responded with anger when it’s suggested the lot could be closed. The school has done just about everything possible to reduce the risk of a serious injury or death, including efforts to get more kids to walk or ride bikes to school.

A crosswalk has been added at the corner of McArthur Road and Brant Street, the speed limit is marked at 40 kilometres per hour during school hours and a loading zone – perfect for dropping off or picking up kids – has been established. A recent police blitz resulted in 40 tickets being handed out, but the deterrent value of a crackdown is – as expected – fleeting. It’s also expensive to have officers staking out a school zone over and over again. Clearly the parking lot should be closed if that’s the greatest risk to kids. It’s time for the city to step in and install traffic calming measures. They don’t have to be expensive. Narrowed traffic lanes can help, and also have the advantage of making the road crossing shorter for pedestrians. The area sounds like a perfect spot to join a pilot project now underway in a few areas of the city that has seen flexible posts installed down a road’s centreline with the speed limit marked on them. This visually narrows the road and can result in lower speeds. If there’s ever a place that deserves added attention, it’s a school zone. No kid should be hurt or killed because they’re heading to or from school.

Our lawns tell story of the new impersonal campaign

E

ven in the last week of the Ontario election campaign, it was hard to find campaign signs on people’s lawns. True, there was no shortage of them on public property. But if you walked along neighbourhood streets and looked for them in front of people’s houses, no go. You could walk an entire city block without seeing a lawn that had a sign on it. Fewer people than usual felt committed enough about a candidate or a party to allow a sign on their lawn. That could mean a lot of things, the most important of which was that the election was not connecting with people. Why would that be? There will be no shortage of blame to spread around. The parties and their leaders will get some of it, for failing to excite the people. The people will get some blame too, for being too busy with trivial matters to care about who governs them. And then there are the media, always available when blame is being shared around. The news media accentuated the negative, played up insignificant controversy and gave insufficient time and space to more serious policy matters. You can find something to agree with all of these explanations, but there are other things to

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town consider, such as the way election campaigns have been changing in recent years. This one was a good example. The parties no longer campaign the way they once did. They now focus almost entirely on media, old and new, and the effect may be to make individuals feel less involved in campaigns. There was more door-knocking in previous campaigns. The odds were that at some point, one or more candidates would come to your door, often accompanied by some of your neighbours. That would help to personalize the campaign for you. You would also see your neighbours at the all-candidates debate at a school or church hall near you. After listening to the candidates and perhaps asking a question or two, you would talk with your friends and neighbours about

what you’d heard. Whichever candidate you supported, you had a sense that the election touched your neighbourhood in some way. And you might put out a sign. Today’s parties don’t seem to care about that. In today’s style of campaigning, there is heavy reliance on television advertising, which involves the individual voter not at all, other than by changing the channel. More recently, there is an increasing emphasis on the Internet and social media. There is Internet advertising and an endless barrage of tweets. Your computer replaces your doorstep. While this means that, theoretically, messages from the parties can reach more people than ever before, the overall effect is to make them less personally involved. They have less personal contact with candidates; they see lots of them, but only as images on a screen. At the same time that electronic contact with voters has expanded, face-to-face contact has diminished. You have probably noticed news articles during the campaign about the decreasing number of all-candidates meetings. This has been interpreted as part of a political strategy to keep tight control on the message and the candidates, to avoid at all costs unscripted encounters with voters and journalists.

The idea is to minimize risk, to avoid situations where candidates have to think on their feet, perhaps make a mistake or show that they don’t know all the answers. Political junkies may find this risk-free campaign interesting to watch, but for most of us these changes in campaign style have created far too much distance between us and the people we elect. The new breed of political strategist doesn’t seem concerned by this. The only goal is winning and if winning can be done without communicating, so much the better. But if it’s working for the parties, it’s not working for the people. The lawns tell the story.

It’s not perfect, but unions can help motivate workers

A

few weeks ago, I got into a heated email debate with a colleague of mine about unions. The subject, loosely, was “have unions outlived their purpose?” My interlocutor said the days of unions as a necessary protector of workers are over, that unionized workplaces lead to lazy and unmotivated workers, and that these workers take advantage of their benefits at expense to their employers. It’s easy enough to flip that argument completely on its head – that non-unionized workplaces lead to stressed out and burnt out workers, and that those without any kind of job security, medical

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse insurance or pension are disloyal and unmotivated. Further, one could argue that employers who don’t offer benefits and pensions make corporate decisions at the expense of their employees. Don’t believe me? It may be worth taking at look at what actually motivates people to perform. Recently, I viewed an animation by RS Animate, which summarized the findings of several aca-

demic studies on motivation. What they found, ultimately, was that a sense of purpose and the opportunity to be creative were two things that drove people to their best performance. Surprisingly, however, the researchers found money to be a very limited motivator. People need to be paid enough money to take the issue of money off the table, they discovered. Beyond

that comfort zone, the more money people were offered to do a task, the worse they performed. Experiments done by the authors of the book Happy Money produced similar results. The majority of American workers, the authors discovered, are motivated by wage increases up to a total salary of $60,000 per year. For every dollar increase over and above that, however, the authors found a negative corelation between money and happiness. In other words, the more money people made, the less happy they reported to be. What does all this have to do with unions? Unions negotiate and protect livable salaries with job security and

benefits. Unionized workers are paid enough money to take the issue of money off the table which, if the studies above are correct, will lead to optimized performance and generally happy workers. We all know this isn’t a perfect formula. There are other motivation problems in unionized environments that need to be considered: restrictions on lateral movement, for example, or the lack of opportunities to innovate. But, as far as money goes, until we see corporations match these healthy work environments without the negotiation and protection of unions, the latter, in my opinion, will continue to have a purpose. It’s easy to be jealous or

Saturd

critical of unionized workers. But let’s not forget that even those of us who are not unionized owe a lot to unions – legislated vacation time, sick days and 40-hour work week, to name a few examples. I’ve worked in both unionized and nonunionized newsrooms. I much prefer the former. While the latter pushed us to the brink daily – no lunch breaks, no vacation, overtime without pay – the unionized environment enforced the opposite, making us better prepared to bring our A-games to the table with every single story. Not to mention the fact that mandated breaks contributed to greater innovation and connection to colleagues and to the workplace generally.

New Friday night space ready for Wabano youth Drug prevention program offers kids a new place to hang out Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Staff at the Wabano Centre are hoping a revamped space in the facility’s basement will become the place to be for young people on Friday nights. The Youth Safe Zone at the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health will be open every week from 3 to 8 p.m. for young people 13 and up to let loose on a Friday night. The events will also include drug prevention programming which will vary in length, but program coordinator Bailley Taylor said the main point is simply for kids to have a place to go and have a good time. “We want it to be a safe place that they want to come to,” Taylor said. “The reality is this safe zone is keeping the kids off the street and giving them something to do, and really

that is part of drug prevention, too.” The improvements to the basement area include computers, gaming systems, a music studio, arts and crafts area and a lounge area for those who show up. Taylor’s structured portion of the evening will be anything but, she said. Growing up on a reservation where drugs and alcohol abuse was all around her, she said the experience helped her choose to say no. “I learned from watching other people screw up all around me. I didn’t want that,” she said. “Even if I only reach out to one student out of 30, that’s still one and hopefully it will spread to the others. I want Fridays to be a place where they can come and feel comfortable and want to be here.” What she plans to do is bring in speakers, bring in examples of how much drugs

When they come here we want to make it fun and want to learn.” The drug prevention portion of the evening will be short, and after, any students who participated are welcome to stay in the centre until 8 p.m. doing as they please, including making dinner for themselves and other students. Dinner will be provided by the Wasa-nabin youth kitchen, another Wabano program. “It’s great, they will learn how to cook and clean as well,” Taylor said. Funding for the programming has been provided by the federal and provincial governments. Although only 15 youth can participate in the kitchen program, the Safe Zone can take an unlimited amount of students Taylor said.

City launches $4.6M lawsuit against bridge designer City staff disciplined – but not fired – over pedestrian bridge fiasco Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city launched a $4.6 million lawsuit against the Airport Parkway footbridge designer and has disciplined staff over the botched project. The lawsuit filed against WSP Canada Inc., which was known as Genivar when the city hired the company to design a gateway pedestrian and cycling bridge connecting the South Keys community to Greenboro shopping centre and Transitway station in 2010. Major issues with the design of the bridge forced the city to stop construction and hire another firm, Delcan, to revise the plans and take over construction. Now, the bridge that was originally slated for completion in 2012 is expected to be done by the end of this year. During a finance and economic development committee meeting on June 3, councillors received an update on the city’s actions following a damning independent report on the project from March that slammed the bridge designer and city staff. The report from SEG Management Consultants, Inc. detailed staff communication issues and faulty procedures that contributed to the problems plaguing the project. Watson confirmed on June 3 that no city staff had lost their jobs over the fiasco, but disciplinary letters had been appended to staff files and there was at least one suspension without pay, although the mayor wouldn’t say how many staffers has been suspended, nor their seniority or the duration of the suspension.

The city has launched a $4.6-million lawsuit against the company that supplied a faulty design for the overdue pedestrian bridge over the Airport Parkway. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick declined to go into detail about what disciplinary action he doled out. “I have applied what is, in my opinion, the right level of discipline to the staff that were involved in the project,” he said after the meeting. Even councillors were left in the dark about the details of the disciplinary action, despite the finance and economic committee going into a private “in camera” session to discuss personnel matters. Information from the SEG report and a separate city auditor general report on procedural issues have prompted the city to make changes to its protocols for communication on infrastructure projects and when managers should get involved, Kirk-

patrick said. That “culture change” in the department includes more than 30 different actions that will all be implemented by 2015, he said. “I am confident by the end of this year the staff in (infrastructure services) will be well focused on the kind of oversight that’s required in managing consultants and contractors, specifically with regards to risk identification, budget and schedule,” he said. Kirkpatrick and Watson agreed that while some of the blame for the project going off the rails lies with city staff, they focused the brunt of the blame on the bridge’s design – hence, the lawsuit. “The primary responsibility for

what has happened and has been the failure of this project to date is the responsibility of the design engineers,” Kirkpatrick said. Although the dollar value of the lawsuit isn’t as large as some of the city’s past legal actions, Kirkpatrick said seeking $4.6 million is a “significant lawsuit” given the small size of the project. The money being sought would cover the cost overruns of having to redesign and rebuild components of the bridge, which originally had a $6.8-million price tag when the project was launched in 2010. The city’s $4.6-million lawsuit adds to the mess of litigation already underway as a result of the bridge project, with contractors and

subcontractors Watson said the issues with the pedestrian bridge have caused ongoing frustration but said they should be viewed in context. “We had over the course of the last several years literally hundreds of projects because of the infrastructure funds from the other levels of government. Well over 95 per cent of those projects arrived on time and on budget,” he said. “The challenge with this project is it’s way off budget, has not been properly executed, there are problems with everything from the cement to the design ... and it’s a very high-profile project. People see it going back and forth from the south end and the airport.”

Dufresne Furniture

Grand Opening By David Johnston Furniture shopping will never be the same. Often considered a confusing and overwhelming predicament by many would-be buyers, The Dufresne Group has revolutionized the furniture and appliance buying experience. Gone are the endless lines of merchandise and fast talking sales people focused more on commissions than customer satisfaction. Instead, the new Dufresne Home Furnishings store at 290 West Hunt Club Road is a state-of-the-art journey of discovery into what will enhance and improve your life and style. “Our goal is to ensure our guests find the furniture, mattresses and appliances that work best for them and make their life simpler,” said Troy Davis, President TDG. “It’s about finding that perfect fit for their unique life and style, all within their budget.” Walking into the fresh, bright store is in itself an experience. You enter Inspiration Way, and are greeted by friendly staff who assist you with your own personal journey of discovery to reveal what furnishings and accessories best suit your needs. “With this new store, we went back to the drawing board,” said Davis. “We explored every corner of the shopping journey and asked ourselves how we could make the experience easier, less stressful, and ultimately, fun.” The result was “collections merchandising” rather than traditional category arrangement. The new location, carefully crafted into 23,000 square feet of showroom, features three main furniture style collections: Current Classic, Cozy Casual and Modern Chic. A couple minutes at a conveniently located computer screen allows the shopper to discover their own style and then simply stroll to that section of the well-laid out store. There they will find a myriad of choices awaiting as the My Custom concept allows buyers to match colours, fabrics, finishes, legs and much more.

“To find that perfect fit, Dufresne combines education, expertise and science into the guest experience—one that could be better described as a journey,” said Davis. “Our sales professionals take the time to get to know each guest and their specific style preferences, room situation and lifestyle needs.” First, a customer selects their “fit”, starting with the largest piece for the room, such as a sofa or dining set. Then personal creativity takes over as you can modify almost every aspect of any piece of furniture. Choose a frame and then customize it with arms from Creighton, Leeds, Marymount, Meadowridge and Ottawa. Finally, you can “refine your look” by selecting the colour and fabric that fit your décor. “Extensive custom order options and complete room solution packages with unique vertical merchandising help ensure a complete offering to the guest,” said Davis. Find your ultimate life and style by simply taking the journey. Cozy Casual is a relaxed collection, combining comfortable, over-sized pieces with warm fabrics and distressed leathers for a vintage look. Modern Chic features simple, clean lines matched with bold accents for an urban expression. Current Classics creates timeless elegance with antique-inspired designs and a sophisticated attention to detail.

Dufresne redefines furniture shopping at new Hunt Club location “You dream, we listen, and together we discover,” said Davis. And when it comes to dreaming, Davis says Dufresne has also revolutionized the art of sleeping well.

Dufresne President Troy Davis displays some of the many options available to create your custom table from the My Custom collection.

shopping. Sometimes it is hard for a person to articulate what they want or need in a mattress but the journey helps you find exactly what you are looking for. It’s not just about product and price; our focus is on providing a sleep solution that lays the foundation for a healthier life.” The same can be said for appliances. The only difference is that the journey starts with a functional assessment to determine what type of machine best suits the application. With all the top brands available, such as Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool and Maytag, the Dufresne team can easily match you to the appliance that fits best. Ottawa Dufresne franchise owner Andre Desrochers is proud of the new location, and thanked his staff and contractors for their dedication and long hours to bring the project to fruition. “We are very excited to be in this new location with such an amazing store,” said Desrochers. “A lot of effort went into making this a reality and now we are ready to launch a whole new way to buy furniture. Our visual presentation team did an amazing job and I am proud of the efforts of all my staff.” This is the second Dufresne location in Ottawa. The existing Gloucester location at 1901 Cyrville Road has also recently been renovated to match the new style of the Hunt Club store. Both stores are open Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. You can find out more about the Dufresne “collections” buying experience online at www.dufresne.ca.

“Walk the journey and take five minutes to find the best sleep of your life,” says Davis. The first step is to analyze how you sleep. With the aid of high-tech science, the staff at Dufresne reveal what you need to sleep better. Then you sample the mattresses and pillows that suit your profile. “This takes the guess work out of mattress

Bus lanes planned for middle of Baseline Cycling tracks added to project to rebuild as six-lane road

STAY SAFE THIS SUMMER It’s official – summer is in full swing. And while some might assume that the return of warm weather simply means more barbecues, bike rides, and beaches, it’s important to remember the safety precautions that go along with all those fun summer activities.

Participants make notes on a map outlining the city’s plans for a rapid-transit corridor on Baseline Road during a June 2 meeting at Ben Franklin Place. with the stops spaced 150 to 300 metres apart, the future rapid transit would see those stops spaced out to between 300 and 600 metres apart. “The fewer times the bus stops, the faster it runs,” Hopper said. “It’s a trade off between having enough bus stops and the speed.” That worried Carol Ruel, a Centrepointe resident and bus user, who said depending on the locations of the stops it might become more difficult for her to get to the bus. Bob McCaw of the Fisher Heights and Area Community Association said he likes the plan and the efficient speed of buses. “Our concern is where the stops are,” he said. McCaw was also perplex by why the city wants to end the rapid-transit corridor at Prince of Wales Drive instead of extending it across the Rideau River to connect with the Confederation O-Train station on Heron Road. “At the west end, it’s focused on certain terminals, but at the east end there is no terminal,” McCaw said. “There has to be a decent connection between these buses and the O-Train,

otherwise what’s the point of having faster buses?” Several people in attendance, including McCaw, were encouraged by the late addition of cycle tracks along Baseline – a raised bicycle lane along the sidewalk to separate cyclists from vehicular traffic. Andrea D’Agostino of the Queensway-Terrance South Ridgeview Community Association said the multi-modal aspect of the redesigned corridor is appealing to her and makes it more accessible to all users. Hans Moor, president of the local advocacy group Citizens for Safe Cycling and a resident of the area, said the bike route is a great option and the city’s last chance to create an eastwest cycling route in the area because the city chose to put “sharrow” markings on Meadowlands Drive to indicate that cyclists and motorists should share the lane. “We missed that opportunity ... (Now) Baseline is basically the last opportunity in old Nepean for the next 50 years to build an east-west connection,” he said.

The first phase of the project, from Prince of Wales to Clyde Avenue, would be widened to six lanes with a dedicated bus lane in each direction. The city might have to acquire a small amount of additional land to widen the road, but most of that width can be accommodated within the existing road right-of-way, said the city’s manager for the project, Jabbar Siddique. The second phase, between Clyde and Baseline Station, has lower traffic volumes and would remain as a four-lane road with buses mixing with traffic until the traffic counts warrant a change, likely after 2025. The third section completing the route all the way west to Bayshore Station wouldn’t happen until after 2031 because it’s not deemed affordable as part of the city’s new transportation master plan last fall. The city has also been planning for a similar format median rapid bus transit lanes on March Road in Kanata North Ward, but that route will likely be built slightly after the Baseline facility, Siddique said.

CAR SAFETY Did you know that your car’s interior temperature can reach as high as 93 degrees Celsius in as little as 10 minutes? It comes as no surprise, then, that you should never leave a child – or pet – in your car, even with the windows partly rolled down. Children are especially at risk for heat exhaustion and heat stroke because their bodies cannot regulate temperature as well as an adult’s.

WATER SAFETY There is nothing quite as refreshing as a dip in the pool – or lake – on a scorching hot day. However, there are heightened safety precautions to take when it comes to children around any body of water. Always keep children within arms’ reach, in and around the water. Make sure they wear lifejackets or person flotation devices in and around the water. Most importantly, never leave a child alone, whether it’s in a swimming pool, lake, river, or bathtub. Speaking of tubs, children under the age of five should never use a hot tub – not even with an adult. Hot tubs are far too hot for young children, may contain large amounts of bacteria, and the drain in the hot tub can be a hazard to small kids.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the safety of a child, please contact the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa immediately.

Check What’s Happening This Week Wouldn’t it be nice to share the fun with somebody who doesn’t get out that often?

The Child and Family Services Act does not identify an age when a child can be left alone, or an age at which a child can supervise or babysit other children. The Act recognizes that age alone is not a sufficient safeguard for the supervision of children. A person who has charge of a child less than 16 years of age cannot leave the child without making provision for his/her care or supervision that is reasonable under the circumstances.

News - The growing pains of transitioning Baseline Road into a rapid bus transit corridor were on display at a June 2 meeting. The city is finalizing plans to widen Baseline Road between Bayshore station and Prince of Wales Drive in phases starting in 2019 or 2020 to provide a dedicated bus lane in each direction. While many of the 20 or so people in attendance were excited about the possibility of quicker transit, they were also concerned about the problems this new format of “Transitway” could cause. Engineers are recommending Ottawa’s first median transit facility, which would see the two bus lanes in the centre of traffic, bordered by two lanes for vehicles closer to the curb. Residents have been expressing concerns about the safety of having to walk into the middle of the road to catch the bus, said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, but that’s just because they haven’t been given a visual of what it would look like. “But I think once people have pictures of how that works they’ll be reassured,” he said. “The way they are going to do it is really safe.” There would be a full bus stop, with a shelter and a wide enough median to allow passengers to safely wait for the bus, said David Hopper, an engineer with Delcan who is working on the project. The bus stops would be located at intersections or pedestrian crossings that would provide a safe way for people to get to the median bus stops, he said. The location of the bus stops caused other concerns for some residents. While route 118 that currently runs on Baseline is considered to be a local route

Ottawa teenager victim in fatal crash Frank Ryan student killed when vehicle rolled over near Watertown, N.Y Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - A 14-year-old Frank Ryan Catholic Intermediate School was pronounced dead at the scene of a car accident near Watertown, N.Y., on June 1. Carine Rabay was ejected from the family car when her father lost control on I-81 while going through a curve. Joseph Rabay, 50, lost control and drove from the driving lane to the passing lane and exited the west shoulder of the road, before striking a guard rail. The car then rolled down the embankment and came to rest on a median. Carine was pronounced dead at the scene. Colette Rabay, 44 and Joelle Rabay, 9, were airlifted to a hospital in Syracuse. Salwa Rabay, 77 and Joseph were also transported to Uni-

versity Hospital and released. New York State police are still investigating the crash. “The school community and the Ottawa Catholic School Board will pray for Carine and her family,” the school board said in a statement released on June 2. Student services staff from the board, along with the school’s own staff, are on hand to provide support to anyone at the school in need. Another statement said the school would hold a private memorial for the Carine, but no details were released. “The family’s wishes are not always ascertained before going ahead with a memorial service and we do not release details about the school’s memorial,” the June 3 statement reads. “The school’s chapel is a place of memory sharing and healing – as the students and staff gather to remember Carine.”

University honours donors at annual memorial service Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - John said father’s decision, made at the age of 81, was a surprise at first. He said his father – a farmer from a small northern Ontario town – probably didn’t have much more than a Grade 9 education. “It seemed odd that he’d want to donate his body to science,” John said. “But I realized it was just another way for him to give back.” Hartley Houston decided to donate his body to the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa while his granddaughter was studying to be a physiotherapist. “He said, ‘Someone donated their body so my granddaughter could be a physiotherapist,’” his son John said during a memorial service hosted by the University at the Pinecrest Cemetery on June 3. “ ‘Someone did it for her; I have to do it for someone else.’” John said his father lived a modest lifestyle, but never failed to help out a neighbour. He was a member of the Lions Club, a volunteer with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and the Canadian Cancer Society. Cathy Delany, whose parents donated their bodies 27 years apart, said it took her 20 years to attend the annual memorial hosted by the university. Her mother, who died from

Delany’s father, Bill, followed suit in 2007 – though his ashes were scattered on a ski slope, sailable water and in Vancouver’s English Bay. “I am honoured to be part of this ceremony,” Delany said to the students. “My parent’s gift

Public workshop on Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor bikeway planned Continued from page 1

The plan includes three major projects â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pedestrian and cycling bridges at the old Prince of Wales rail bridge over the Ottawa River, a Donald-Somerset connection and a bridge near Lansdowne at Fifth Avenue and Clegg. The east-west bikeway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an extension of the Laurier Avenue segregated bike lane â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is the major project in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core. It will connect Westboro through downtown to Vanier, though the entire route wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be segregated with collapsible poles, like the Laurier section. The portions east of Elgin Street in Sandy Hill, Lowertown and Vanier are to be completed this year. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;missing linkâ&#x20AC;? from Laurier to Albert Street is also priority, a project set to get underway in 2015. After the light-rail system comes online in 2018, there are cycle tracks planned for Albert Street, which currently forms the westbound portion of the bus Transitway. Another downtown project in the works is an extension of O-Train pathway that

opened in 2013. The new section would extend from Young Street to Carling Avenue, with a signalized crossing at Carling. In the Glebe, a series of cycling-lane projects are underway with a view to easing access to Lansdowne Park when it re-opens sporting events in July. Holmwood, Glebe, First and Fifth avenues will form the east-west access. Further east, a bike lane is being added to Sussex Drive between St. Patrick Street in Lowertown and the existing lanes that start at the Rideau River. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cycling initiatives also include adding bike parking, include 150 new ring-and-post sites and a new pilot project to add on-street bike parking â&#x20AC;&#x153;corralsâ&#x20AC;? in two vehicle parking spaces in Wellington West and one in the Glebe. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;CONNOR BIKEWAY

The major southbound corridor will be Percy Street between Wellington Street in Centretown and Glebe Avenue. A public workshop to work

out the details for that route will be held Thursday, June 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Colonel By room at city hall. Registration is required. Email oconnorbikeway@ottawa.ca to sign up. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said the intent is making the route bidirectional, whether that means having both north- and southbound lanes on Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor, which is a one-way southbound street, or by having northbound cyclists use Metcalfe Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hugely important,â&#x20AC;? he said. Having a dedicated bike route thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delineated with a painted line, segregated with posts or separated from trafďŹ c as a raised cycle track â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would encourage people to use their bikes to get downtown and to Lansdowne, Chernushenko said. Bank Street was designed with wider sidewalks and no bike lanes when it was rebuilt three years ago and northsouth cycle lanes on further west on Lyon and Percy streets arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continuous, he said.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Janet Uren works away at her latest lecture, a look back at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first tennis club in Old Ottawa South. The Heritage Ottawa lecture will take place on June 18.

A look at clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and future Continued from page 1

but.â&#x20AC;? Uren said although the elite in Ottawa werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily royalty, it was a closed club where people had to buy shares to join and no children and few women were allowed to play. Those women who did wore ďŹ&#x201A;oor length gowns, with corsets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; far from the attire todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players wear. Already having spent some time working on the history of the Minto Skating Club and currently working on a larger labour of love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a history of

Urenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job, she said, is to tell the tale of the players, and the club members and give faces and stories to the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look into the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, you ďŹ nd the old Ottawa families, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like you are following them around the city,â&#x20AC;? Uren said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will also be about how the club changed. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a community-based club where anyone is welcome, but in the old days it was anything

New Edinburgh â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Uren said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to get lost in these prominent Ottawa familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives. Uren will be looking back, but Kris Benes of Open Plan Architects, the architect who has been retained to restore the aging building, will talk about the restoration project and the future for the club. The lecture begins at 7 p.m. More information about the event is available by visiting the website at heritageottawa. org.

Tim Tierney re-elected as municipal federation rep Laura Mueller

         

laura.mueller@metroland.com

 

    

News - Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney has been reelected as the vice-chairman of the Ontario caucus of the Federation of Municipalities of Canada. The east-end councillor was the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first representative on the nationwide body when he became a committee member three years ago. He was re-

elected to the vice-chairman role during the federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting last month. Tierney said having a voice at that table â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a role setting the agenda for what the Ontario caucus will discuss â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is of benefit to Ottawa. Safety concerns surrounding level rail crossings have become a topic of interest for municipalities across Ontario and Canada and the federation is working on the issue

with the federal government. The group was also involved in â&#x20AC;&#x153;closing the loopholeâ&#x20AC;? that prevented municipalities from having a say in the location of communication towers within their jurisdiction, Tierney said. Renewing federal commitments to housing and homelessness funding and advocating for how the Build Canada federal infrastructure funding program are also on the federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda, Tierney said.

News - The city wants input on what the municipal government and citizens can do to protect and preserve its water. Ideas for promoting understanding about the health of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rivers, lakes and streams will be the theme of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;water roundtable,â&#x20AC;? to be held at city hall on Saturday, June 14. Anyone interested in participating must go to their city

councillor for details. Questions about the event can be addressed to waterroundtable@ ottawa.ca. The roundtable is working towards a water environment strategy, which was recommended as part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa River Action plan. Environment committee chairwoman Maria McRae, councillor for River Ward, has touted the roundtable event as a follow-up to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent ap-

proval of a strategy for greenhouse gases. Young people were asked to participate by designing a poster in the theme â&#x20AC;&#x153;water is life.â&#x20AC;? Each elementary school in Ottawa could submit one poster design, which can be drafted by an individual student or a group of pupils from grades 3, 4 and 5. The posters will be displayed at city hall and during the water roundtable.

$125,000 offered to any group that can fix food security Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

The twins and their families were all at the park for a belated celebration of National Multiple Births Awareness Day, which was on May 28. The day was held by the Multiple Birth Families Association of Ottawa and Gatineau.

News - The Community Foundation of Ottawa is offering $125,000 to an organization which aims to solve this city’s food security issue. The foundation announced the launch of the New Leaf Community Challenge and the grant funding at one of the city’s Good Food Markets, at the Nanny Goat Hill Community Garden on May 31. The grant will be offered to the group which develops the best approach to improving the community’s access to affordable, nutritious food. According to president of the foundation, Marco Pagani, the group picked food security above other issues such as affordable housing and civic engagement as the first challenge because of the disturbing trend of residents who rely on food banks. “We feel that helping to provide better access to nutritious, affordable food is definitely the right place to start,” Pagani said. According to the Community Foundation of Ottawa, currently more than 75,000 people in Ottawa worry

they don’t have enough food to feed themselves or their families due to finances and living situations. The plan is for the winning organization to find a long-term solution to the problem. Established in 1987, the foundation connects donors with causes. It has served as a resource for people who address issues and concerns and aims to make new opportunities available for communities in need. Currently managing assets in excess of $100 million, it has provided more than $70 million in grants to the community since its inception.In the past the foundation has funded many small initiatives to help improve food security, engage citizens and work at making affordable housing a reality. Following the launch, organizations and partnering groups will have until Sept. 15 to submit a proposal for a project that will offer to create sustainable change in the area of food security and access to nutritious, affordable food in Ottawa. The foundation will pick three top projects who will present to a jury at a live community event in the fall where the top-ranked proposal will be awarded the grant.

Vanier resident honoured for cycling advocacy Sarah Partridge receives city award for efforts to get neighbourhood pedalling Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - Riding a bicycle is more than a just a way to get around for Vanier resident Sarah Partridge, who was honoured for her contribution to the cycling community. Since moving to the neighbourhood, she has been involved with nurturing the local cycling community. Starting with joining the community association, Partridge helped create the association’s subcommittee, Vanier Cycles, and invited all area cyclists to participate in promoting cycling. From there, Partridge has led the fight for better bike lanes and routes in the east end and helped launch the neighbourhood’s annual bike festival, which takes place each June. It’s easy to see how Partridge has changed the way people think about bicycles. Recently awarded the Bruce Timmermans Award for her

advocacy of cycling, Partridge said she just wanted to participate in the conversation and to promote riding to work. After learning she’d won the award, Partridge said she was surprised and credited the award to the community. “Really, I know this award is for an individual, but it would not have happened if not for the strong community that made it possible,” she said. According to the city’s website, Bruce Timmermans was a long-time cycling educator and advocate, an active member of the Ottawa Bicycle Club and a founding member of Citizens for Safe Cycling. Each year the city hands out one individual award and one group award. The individual award honours an exemplary citizen who has proactively and publicly promoted the benefits of cycling as a principal mode of transportation. See BIKE, page 33

Play ball Young players from local soccer clubs, including Nepean City Soccer Club, Russell Soccer Club, West Ottawa Soccer Club and the Aylmer club joined officials to mark the one-year countdown to the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada tournament to be held in Ottawa. A countdown clock was installed at city hall to mark the days left until the event, which starts June 6, 2015 and will feature nine matches played over six dates at the new Lansdowne stadium. Ticket prices were also announced. Stadium passports for all matches range from $140 to $395.

Bike lanes for St. Patrick Bridge next challenge Continued from page 31

In only two years, Partridge has accomplished this and more. The creation of the Vanier Velo Fest last year was a big part of that, an event that encouraged everyone in the community to celebrate cycling. The festival offers free helmets and T-shirts for children, a barbecue and bike rodeo. The event is made possible by donations and support from local partners. But aside from organizing festivals, Partridge and her cycling committee have taken an active interest in the east-west bikeway, and ensuring the eastend connections not only get made, but make sense. Most recently, at the suggestion from the committee, Partridge led an effort to see Vanier- and Overbrook-specific paths were added to the official bikeway plans. Partridge said she still has a lot of work to do to get cycling routes in the east end up

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Sarah Partridge arrives at Ottawa-Vanier’s all-candidates debate on June 5 on her favourite mode of transportation -- her bike.

The City of Ottawa has initiated a planning and functional design study for the review and implementation of improved neighbourhood cycling routes within the Glebe community. This project is identified as a Phase 1 project in the recently approved Ottawa Cycling Plan and also builds upon consultation previously undertaken by the Glebe Community Association. The intent of this project is to review the cycling connections in the neighbourhood as a whole, as well as to review each of the proposed routes individually, considering different design alternatives in order to provide an improved cycling environment within the community. The purpose of this Public Information Session is to present the evaluation process, the preferred concepts and next steps, as well as to provide the public and interested stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss the study with the project team. It will be a drop-in style public meeting providing you the opportunity to stop in and learn about the project at your convenience.

Your comments are welcome and encouraged at any point during this study. For more information, please contact:

Yogis raising money for instructors’ family Community chipping in for 11-year-old with brain tumour

FUNDRAISERS

Many in the Orléans community, especially those who do yoga, know Ethan’s parents, Todd and Amanda, both of whom are yoga instructors. Amanda teaches at the Athletic Club in Orléans and at Train Yards; Todd teaches at both the locations as well as Pure Yoga in Westboro and Centretown. On May 31, both the Athletic Club locations held a day-long barbecue, silent auction and yogathon to raise money for the family. Working as yoga instructors, neither parent gets paid when missing work for Ethan’s appointments. Amanda is taking a leave of absence over the summer to care for Ethan; and extra treatments and medications not covered by OHIP are all out of pocket. Costs have also added up quickly for the many trips for the family of five to Toronto to deal with the doctors at Sick Kids Hospital.

Community – The community has been raising money to support a Terry Fox Elementary School student who is having surgery to remove a brain tumour this summer. For the most part, Ethan Lavictoire is a normal, quiet 11-year-old kid, who loves Lego and playing baseball. But Ethan and his family have been dealing with his severe headaches and their side effects for several years, which happen several days a week. The headaches are so severe they make Ethan sick, and have required a variety of treatments – such as physiotherapy – to try and remedy. Doctors eventually discovered Ethan had a benign brain tumour in his language centre. This spring, they told his family it had doubled in size within the past year. His family has been travelling to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto to seek treatment for Ethan, who will turn 12 this August. He’s been seeing a variety of doctors since he started having migraines at age six; it’s been a part-time job for his parents to coordinate tests and doctor results ever since then. On July 15, Ethan will

have surgery in Toronto to remove the tumour. He’ll be in the hospital for about a week, and recovering throughout the summer. Because brain surgery is complicated, it’s hard to know how long or exactly what his recovery will entail.

There was a large turnout at both of the locations, with many of Todd and Amanda’s students taking part, and Ethan making a stop by the Orléans location for the family yoga class. “In the beginning, I felt overwhelmed ” Amanda said, adding Ethan is fairly quiet, but got excited when he saw all the posters with his photo on them around the gym for the fundraiser. “He needed this to be OK with his diagnose.” After counting how many posters were up at the gym, Amanda said Ethan “felt like, ‘I’m awesome, I’m a superstar, I’m famous.’” Ethan’s classmates at Terry Fox had also planned a fundraising dance-a-thon for June 5 at the school. So far, the community has raised $30,000 for the family. The amount of community support has raised the family’s spirits, especially Ethan’s, said his mother.

Students and staff from St. Pius X High School present the proceeds from College Coun. Rick Chiarelli’s annual alcohol-free New Year’s Eve party on May 30.

Pius Cares marks MADD Canada effort Ottawa East News staff

Community - St. Pius X High School students showed they care on May 30. St. Pius Cares, a group of students who volunteered at College Coun. Rick Chiarelli’s alcohol-free New Year’s Eve party, handed over an $800 cheque from the proceeds of the sale of refreshments. This year’s theme was pirates and princesses and attracted more than 8,000 people.

The event was created by Chiarelli when he was cochairman of the former Nepean council’s anti-impaired driving project. “The effort was so successful that it became an annual spectacular that continues to this day. But, it could not be done without the generosity and dedication of volunteer groups such as you. Thank you for your continued support of the event,” Chiarelli said. It has been voted “Best place to be on New Year’s

Eve” by a CTV Ottawa poll. Activities included free sleigh rides, music, magic shows, dance showcases, skating parties and of course, the best fireworks show in Ottawa on New Year’s Eve! Many joined in on the theme by attending in pirate and princess costumes, some even won prizes! After twenty-one years it remains one of Ottawa’s most successful anti-impaired driving projects that has been partnered with MADD and OSAID through the years.

salted water, cover and bring potatoes to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until they’re just barely fork-tender, about five minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the gravy, wine (if you’re using it), rosemary and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for two minutes to blend the flavours. Remove the pan from the heat, discard the rosemary and keep warm. Drain the potatoes and pat them dry. In a medium bowl, stir together the potatoes and oil, and add salt and pepper to taste. Place potatoes on a greased rectangular grill topper or in flat grill basket in single layer. Place on a covered grill

over medium-high heat for six to nine minutes or until the potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally. Place the potatoes in a 20centimetre (eight-inch) round or square disposable foil container. Reduce the heat to low. Sprinkle the potatoes with cheese curds and return them to the grill to cook, covered, until the cheese is slightly melted -about three minutes. Serve on individual plates and drizzle each with 25 to 45 mL of gravy or serve in a container drizzled with most of the gravy, leaving some for those who like lots. Sprinkle with green onion.

Switching churches a serious topic for Audrey

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;B

eing Lutheran is no fun,â&#x20AC;? Audrey said for the umpteenth time that morning. Mother let out a loud sigh, and I knew what was coming next, because my sister on the rare occasions she even bothered to discuss with me anything the least bit serious, had talked about this very thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we have more Sunday picnics like the Uniteds? Beatrice said there are at least two more picnics this summer, and we Lutherans have yet to have even one.â&#x20AC;? Audrey was wiping the oilcloth on the kitchen table, and she was rubbing so hard I thought she was going to rub out the checked red and white pattern. Then she took the argument even further by sug-

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories gesting she saw no reason why she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the United Church and the rest of the family stay Lutheran. Well, that tore it. Mother sat Audrey down at one end of the table, just by pointing her ďŹ nger to the nearest chair, and she sat at the other end. There was nothing I liked better than a good heated discussion, and I knew I was about to witness a dandy. Nothing bothered Mother more than to have one of us argue about going to church. Even though we came from what Aunt Lizzie called a divided household, to Mother going to the Lutheran church every Sunday was just as important as doing the washing on Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and having our weekly bath on Saturday night. There were no ques-

tions asked as far as going to church was concerned, and only a calamity of the highest order would keep us away. Mother told Audrey you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to church to have fun. You were there to learn about the bible, and listen to a good message. I thought it was a good time to bring up the subject of our divided household, since we were talking church and all. I had no idea what it meant when Aunt Lizzie had come from Regina one time and as well as declaring Mother as â&#x20AC;&#x153;not being of the best farm material she had ever seen,â&#x20AC;? she also said Mother created what was called a divided household for her brother â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my father. So I dared to ask, what

was a divided household? Mother ignored my question, but my sister Audrey jumped right in and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means Father is a Lutheran, and Mother is a Catholic.â&#x20AC;? Well, that was all news to me. The nearest Catholic church was in Renfrew and not once did we ever go to a church service in the Catholic church in Renfrew. How could Mother be a Catholic and not go to church every Sunday? Now, she did have a rosary, and she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat meat on Fridays, and on occasion I did see her cross herself, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as far as it went. Why, we often sang on the street corner with the Salvation Army band in Renfrew â&#x20AC;&#x201C; did that make us Salvation Army members? Anyway, as far as Mother was concerned the discussion was over, and Audrey and I headed for the swing in the grape arbour. I told Audrey I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go to one church and have her go to another. I told her about the time she was asked to sing a hymn and how I tingled from my head to my toes with pride, and how everyone said she

sang like a bird, and I just knew she would be asked to sing again someday. Whose shoulder could I lean against when I nodded off during the sermon? Certainly not my brother Emersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell by looking at Audrey, sitting across from me in the swing, if I had been able to convince her to stay a Lutheran. I had to think of something that would leave no doubt in her mind that going to the United Church just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a good idea. Then it hit me right out of the blue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hear Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother from the Barr Line is going to join the Lutheran Church. Remember how he chose your cake at the cake auction at our church? Cost him a whole quarter too. He sure had the sweets on you.â&#x20AC;? I had no idea in the world whether or not Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother had any intention of joining the Lutheran church, but this issue called for drastic measures, and if that meant telling a little white lie, so be it. Audrey got a dreamy look in her eyes, which was a very

good sign. I thought I would seal the deal by adding a bit more to the story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shirley said he is now old enough to drive the car too. He loves to go into Renfrew to the picture shows.â&#x20AC;? I had my ďŹ ngers crossed behind my back, which was supposed to get rid of the sin of telling a lie. I sure hoped it worked, because I had no idea if Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family even owned a car â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they came to church in a horse and buggy. Well, that did the trick. Audrey put her head back in the swing, and pushed the boards gently with her feet, and the swing squeaked back and forth in a steady rhythm. I knew she was thinking of trips into Renfrew to the picture show, and Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother sitting in a pew in the Lutheran Church. Joining the United Church was never mentioned again.

Local author’s book marks anniversary of Empress sinking ‘Canada’s worst maritime disaster’ somehow lost in history: novelist Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Arts - An award-winning author and teacher from Kanata hopes her historical fiction novel about “Canada’s worst maritime disaster” helps to implant the tragedy in popular Canadian mythos. The novel entitled Unspeakable and penned by Caroline Pignat, surrounds the sinking of The Empress of Ireland, a cruise ship lost in the St. Lawrence River. More than 1,000 people died when the ship sank on the very first day of its voyage from Quebec to Liverpool, topping the tally of passengers lost on the Titanic, said Pignat. Despite the sheer size of the disaster, its story is littleknown, she said. With the 100th anniversary of the sinking, a stunning collection at the Canadian Museum of History now open to the public, and her novel, Pignat said she hopes this can change. “I hope the book makes

people want to learn more about the event,” and about the heroic people who lived through it, she said. It’s a story that she was unfamiliar with as well, when Penguin Books asked her to write a novel about the tragedy. A lot of Pignat’s other historical works have to do with Ireland, so she thought maybe that’s why the publisher was asking her to write it. “Then (the publisher) goes, ‘No, no, it’s one of Canada’s biggest maritime disasters and the 100th anniversary is coming up.’ “I still had no idea what she was talking about,” admits Pignat. After doing some research on the topic, she said the story begged to be told. “The facts themselves are amazing,” said Pignat. It was May 29, 1914, she said. The Empress of Ireland was sailing from Quebec to Liverpool, its 96th voyage, and on that first night, just as

BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

Author Caroline Pignat reads from her new book Unspeakable at D’Arcy McGee’s in Kanata on May 31. The author and All Saints teacher was reading at her official book launch. the ship was nearing the end of the St. Lawrence River, a fog rolled in. A little before 2 a.m., a smaller ship called the Storstad was nearing The Empress, and in the confusion, the Storstad hammered into The Empress, ripping a 33 square metre hole

in the ocean liner. Had the Storstad remained embedded in The Empress, the cruise liner may not have sunk, said Pignat. The smaller ship was plugging the hole it had made and could possibly have stayed embedded in the hull of The Empress until

they reached the shore just six miles away. But, the Storstad detached from The Empress, and water came surging in. The sinking occurred two years after the Titanic, which did not carry enough lifeboats for the crew and passengers. Learning from that, The Empress had been outfitted with more lifeboats and better technology to keep it afloat. But, as the ship began leaning to one side, the portholes, left open as the ship had yet to make it to open water, let water gush into passengers’ rooms. “Some of the accounts that I read were saying it was like a fire-hose right on you in the bed,” said Pignat. “Some people drowned in their beds and weren’t able to get out of their room.” The ship rolled, and in 14 minutes, it had sunk. Of the 1,447 people sailing on The Empress, 1,012 died. Ellie, a fictional character and Pignat’s main character, is a stewardess and one of the survivors of the sinking. She refuses to speak about what happened while she looks for Jim, one of the ship’s stokers

who she is in love with, said Pignat. But, when a journalist finds Jim’s journal and uses it as leverage to get Ellie to talk, the story of The Empress’ descent beneath the waves is recounted, she said. The story of The Empress of Ireland has long been referred to as “Canada’s Titanic,” but won little of the attention that disaster had garnered. Perhaps it’s because the First World War began two months later, or the deaths of New York socialites out-shone those of The Empress of Ireland, said Pignat. “More passengers died on that ship than on the Titanic or the Lusitania, which is crazy,” she said, “and we’ve never heard of it.” Pignat said she believes it’s time for the sinking to be remembered, adding “It was definitely an honour to be given the opportunity to write it.” Pignat will be signing copies of her book on June 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Kanata Chapters at 400 Earl Grey Dr. The Canadian Museum of History’s exhibit on the sinking runs until April 6, 2015.

CHEO opens new epilepsy monitoring unit Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - Dr. Sharon Whiting motions to a bank of computer monitors stationed in the hallway outside two hospital rooms at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. The specialized high-tech equipment and dedicated beds are features of the hospital’s brand new epilepsy monitoring unit that opened on May 12, which is already making a difference in the lives of children and youth who either have epilepsy, or it’s suspected they may have the neurological disorder, which is characterized by seizures. “The (four) patients that have been admitted (so far) were patients who either had a diagnosis of epilepsy and we wanted to confirm where in the brain the seizures were coming from or we wanted to actually make sure that they had seizures,” said Whiting, an epileptologist – a neurologist with a sub-specialty in epilepsy - and head of the hospital’s neurology division. “This has implications for all the patients in terms of their treatment and followup,” she said. On average about 200 new epileptic patients are seen at CHEO each year. About 100

Dr. Sharon Whiting, head of neurology CHEO, said the creation of an epilepsy monitoring unit will cut wait times for patients. of them will come into the new unit for comprehensive testing and diagnosis, effectively doubling the number of pediatric patients, and reducing wait times, said Whiting. The unit is already booked until October, though the schedule can be shifted to accommodate more urgent cases, she said. Once admitted to the unit, two patients at a time can be monitored for an average of three days, from Monday to Friday. This gives the unit’s medical team, which now includes

two new dedicated technologists, more time to collect data on the patient’s brain function – especially during a seizure – in a safe and controlled environment, said Whiting. While some patients can still be assessed in the hospital’s outpatient electroencephalogram lab as before, they are only monitored for 30 minutes to an hour between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Patients and their families often have to come back several days in a row so that a seizure can be recorded. “The downside of that is that if they had events during the night, you couldn’t capture those events because we send them home each day,” said Whiting, a Mooney’s Bay resident. “That was not a very efficient way. Parents had to take a lot of time off (from work). We may or may not capture the events.” Before the creation of the dedicated unit, these patients could be admitted to the hospital for overnight monitoring, but patients requiring more urgent care who were admitted through the emergency department took precedence. “To get those patients previously admitted would take months,” said Whiting.

To improve chances of recording a seizure, a patient’s medication dosages sometimes need to be tapered ahead of time. “You can’t do that process unless you’re sure you’ve got a bed,” she said. “So it meant that that patient coming in would stay even longer, so this has helped us with access, it has helped us with length of time that patient has to stay and very good information that we’re able to get.” The new unit also comes with two new dedicated electroencephalogram or EEG machines, with video and audio capabilities, allowing the team to constantly record a patient’s brain function over a longer period of time. This allows the medical experts to make a more definitive diagnosis, and even rule out epilepsy altogether. Before the new unit was created, the equipment suffered wear and tear from being transported to various units in the hospital. “This way we’re in one location, we have a set number of trained staff, everything is

very complete,” said Whiting, who also serves as a vice-dean at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine. Precision means everything in her line of work. The unit will allow doctors to more quickly determine if a patient is a candidate for surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. The comprehensive data gathered by the CHEO team at the unit will cut down on waiting times for assessments at the Toronto hospital. “Their waiting time could have taken up to a year to get assessed,” Whiting said. “Now with our unit we’re able to give them all this data when we send them on, and they analyze the data before they even see the patient. “And then that means the whole process is quicker for everybody.” Whiting is part of a 15member task force launched last year by Ontario’s Ministry of Health to examine how epilepsy care is delivered at district epilepsy centres, such as CHEO; regional epilepsy centres, where surgery is

done; and the delivery of coordinated and standardized care across these sites and with family doctors. The team, comprised of epileptologists, nurses, technologists, senior administrators and representatives from the province’s Ministry of Heath, also examined the need for dedicated beds. They also created standardized guidelines on how the monitoring units should operate, taking into account safety aspects and the types of required medical personnel required. “We realized there were many barriers and challenges,” Whiting said, adding that one hurdle for patients was the lack of dedicated monitoring units, which meant long wait times and erratic care. There is potential to expand CHEO’s monitoring unit, depending on the feedback that comes out of an ongoing evaluation process, Whiting said. But, just weeks after its launch, she said she is already pleased with the positive impact the unit is having in providing more comprehensive care to young patients. “We have more time, more resources, more people,” she said. “It’s good.”

Windmill files application for Chaudiere development News - Windmill Development Group has submitted an OfďŹ cial Plan amendment in support of its planned redevelopment of the former Domtar lands near Chaudiere Falls. The developer envisions a sustainable mixed-use district containing jobs, residences and public space in what is being called the Chaudiere District, encompassing six hectares of land on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River and almost nine hectares in Gatineau. Contained within the application are a zoning bylaw amendment, a development master plan and a two-stage site plan control proposal. In the lead-up to the application, Windmill consulted with numerous stakeholders, including the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau, the National Capital Commission and the public. According to the applicationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning rationale (prepared by Fotenn Consultants in conjunction with a team of architects and urban plan-

ners), the redevelopment would be guided by a series of 10 environmental principles. The principles dictated by the One Planet Community program demand, among other things, that any building constructed must be energy efďŹ cient and generate no waste, while the surrounding environment must be respected as much as possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is anticipated that the Chaudiere region will become a showcase of sustainable development, a One Planet Community, and a mixed-use neighbourhood that will be among the most desirable communities in Ottawa-Gatineau,â&#x20AC;? according to the rationale. The land vacated by Domtar in 2007 includes a series of islands in the Ottawa River at the north end of Booth Street, as well as a portion of the Gatineau shoreline. The expansive site contains a number of buildings, some of which would be incorporated into the development. However, given their advanced age, some buildings arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t candidates for re-use.

NCC looks to liven up Ottawa’s riverfront Change will be gradual, however, as no budget assigned to project Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The National Capital Commission hopes to make the green space along Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway into something more grand – but not anytime soon. A group of stakeholders from community associations and local agencies were invited to the NCC’s offices on May 27 for a “blue sky” brainstorming session on how the nine kilometres of parkland could be improved. But there is no budget for any improvements now and it’s likely nothing could be done for a decade, said the NCC’s CEO, Mark Kristmanson. “The idea of a waterfront linear park that would run from the Canadian War Museum up to Britannia on the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway is an idea for the long term. It’s not something you’ll see coming next year or something,” Kristmanson said. “This is kind of an aspirational

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

From left to right, McKeller Park resident Rich Brandau, Carleton University professor Ben Gianni, Sandra Pecek and Madeleine Demers of the NCC participate in a May 27 consultation on how to make the green space along Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway into a linear park. ‘blue-skying’ of what could be done with the parkway in the long term. It could be 10 years before something

happens.” He was hoping people would come up with ideas to create bet-

ter access to the waterfront and add more activities or amenities that would attract people there or entice the large volumes of cyclists who use the pathways to stick around. Connecting the parkway lands back into the “urban fabric,” especially near the war museum, is another goal of Kristmanson’s. The main theme of discussions around various tables at the consultation was how much people cherished the green space that is already there. “It’s a fantastic amenity. Any changes need to be in addition to, rather than a change,” said Ben Gianni, a professor from Carleton University’s school of architecture. Michael Powell of the Dalhousie Community Association agreed. “It’s less about creating a linear park than expanding on what’s already there,” he said. “I think they’re a great asset. They are already very well used and much loved and beautiful,” Kristmanson said. “But you could imagine ... As society changes, as means of transportation change, as climate changes, all of things things, it will open up new possibilities and opportunities.” Some ideas floated by participants included adding washroom facilities – perhaps composting toilets, sug-

gested Melissa Hugh of the Woodroffe North Community Association – and adding interpretative signs to explain the flora and fauna of the area. Several participants pointed out that access across the parkway to the water is limited and even obvious access points – such as well-used routes near Tunney’s Pasture – are not made into actual paths. While the city and the NCC are at loggerheads over a proposed western extension of the light-rail line that the city hopes to run through a portion of the NCC’s parkway lands at Rochester Field, Kristmanson said the linear park consultation doesn’t relate to the rail project. “I think it will help inform the broader consultation about western light rail and how it should work, what it should do and what it forms part of, but that’s not part of the objective tonight,” he said. “We’re looking at what people are doing around the world with waterfront spaces and using them in imaginative ways,” Kristmason said. The initiative is part of a broader consultation on what Canadians would like to see the NCC’s parkways become. More shoreline planning projects are in the pipes, Kristmanson said, likely starting with the Quebec side of the Ottawa River.

PET OF THE WEEK

Pet Adoptions Meet Betsy, an affectionate and active German shepherd/boxer mix looking for her forever home. Betsy would love to live with a family that enjoys exercise as much as she does! Betsy’s favourite game is playing fetch – she will be wellmatched in a home with older or dog-savvy kids who can throw around the ball with her, take her on walks and enjoy her playful personality! Betsy is a very social gal and likes the company of other dogs but would do best with other four-legged friends who will respect her space. She would benefit from an experienced owner who can help her be the best pooch possible with obedience training.
