The canoe trip starts at Dow’s Lake and brings police officers and Aboriginal youth together in an effort to forge better relationships.

News - A new infill conversion proposed in New Edinburgh has drawn the ire of neighbours and the community’s heritage committee. The proposal will see the home at 308 MacKay St. be converted into a three-storey, four unit condominium featuring below-grade parking and balconies. Area residents attended a special New Edinburgh Community Alliance heritage committee meeting on July 10 to discuss the proposal. Heritage committee member, Joan Mason said the group will fight the proposal which, in their opinion, does not comply with the city’s definition of intensification. “The mass of this new complex does not reflect the other

buildings in the area, the balconies do not respect the immediate neighbours and we don’t believe she (property owner Linda Chapman) is saving the house,” Mason said at the meeting. The alliance heritage committee made a formal submission to the city’s committee of adjustment concerning the property which stated the community supports intensification and believes the site in question is an appropriate spot for intensification, but does not agree with this particular proposal, citing outstanding questions such as what will be the effect on surrounding properties from the excavation of the underground parking lot, a lack of a hydrology report and issues surrounding the removal of a mature tree on the property line.

City council votes Main Street to be made ‘complete’ Old Ottawa East street to be reduced to two lanes, adding cycling track Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A heated discussion about making Main Street “complete” ended in the result Old Ottawa East residents were looking for: reduced car lanes, added cycling lanes and wider sidewalks. The two-lane, “complete

street” makeover for Main Street was approved by council on July 17, but construction won’t get underway until August of next year, after the detailed design is completed. The ward’s councillor, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, said council’s 18-6 vote was a huge win for the community. “Main Street has degraded

as a place to live, a place to walk, a place to own a business or develop,” he said. “This will be a boost for businesses and development.” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley has been outspoken in his objection to the completestreet makeover. His worried that approving the format would set the stage

for city staff to recommend a complete street for arterial roads and main streets in the suburbs, like his community. “I’m supportive of this type of complete street when it’s within a community,” Hubley said, adding that main streets and arterial roads are “not streets we can restrict traffic on.”

Mayor Jim Watson was also in support of the revamp because he said it will slow down traffic and make the area safer, which are the top issues he hears about from residents across the city. “This is a very progressive thing to do,” the mayor said, adding he hopes to see more “complete streets” in other communities.

Overbrook weighs in on infill, development in neighbourhood Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

With more infill developments popping up in the neighbourhood, the Overbrook Community Association held a special meeting to discuss how the community will respond to such projects and how it can work to shape the nature of development in the future.

News - The Overbrook Community Association says every resident’s opinion counts when it comes to how inďŹ ll and development affects their neighbourhood. The association’s July 18 monthly meeting saw residents discussing inďŹ ll and new developments in the neighbourhood. A handful of residents attended the meeting, saying they were interested in how they could participate and learn more about the changes taking place in the area. Association president Sheila Perry started the meeting with an overview

WELCOMES Pam Hepinstall as Marketing Manager. Riverstone is pleased to announce the appointment of Pam Hepinstall as Marketing Manager of Maplewood Retirement Community.

of the city’s OfďŹ cial Plan and told the residents how important it is for community groups to weigh in on the process of updating the plan. “My request to you is to make a couple of notes that come to mind speciďŹ c to Overbrook,â€? she said. Perry members to focus their attention on topics such as affordability, urban land issues, urban design and intensiďŹ cation, transit oriented development, public transit and the city’s plans to create “complete streets.â€? Overbrook is located just north of where a light rail station is planned at St. Laurent Shopping Centre and is subject to some development as a result, Perry said. She added that it is important as a community to start thinking about how and what residents would like to see in the neighbourhood. “What you suggest tonight will go directly to the association’s planning committee, who is currently working on developing our own community design plan,â€? Perry said. Usually created in conjunction with the city, a community design plan helps deďŹ ne future development in a neighbourhood. The Overbrook association took it upon themselves to start a CDP process and has been working on the plan for the past two years. The goal, the association said, is to deďŹ ne exactly what the community

wants and use this tool when dealing with developers and the city. Perry called this plan a “wish listâ€? and encouraged residents to send ideas to the committee in order for all input to be recorded. The plans to create a community design plan came on the heels of the approval of a 15-storey apartment building development on Presland Road. The development, which the community fought hard to stop, remains a sore spot and according to Perry the plan is aimed at stopping projects that, in the community’s opinion, do not ďŹ t in with the neighbourhood. “A lot of this is about us being vigilant,â€? Perry said. “This is about ďŹ nding out what Overbrook wants.â€? Those who attended the meeting left with comment sheets to ďŹ ll out and return to the association. Board member David Stambrook asked when the association will compile the residents’ responses and report back to the community. Perry said the earliest would be in September, but the committee will try to have a draft available for electronic distribution prior to that meeting. All the information from the meeting, as well as information about concerns on development and inďŹ ll, and links to the city’s ofďŹ cial plan is available on the association’s website at overbrook.ca.

Residents, businesses work to revive Vanier market Baguettes, with a jazz band and a free barbecue to draw residents, Alpenblick Farms and Kiwan Farms set up from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Maison Baguettes owner Amos Mbenoun said it will continue every Saturday for the rest of the summer. “We need the market, we were part of it for the past three years and it was great,� Mbenoun said. He has offered up the space for free for the vendors. The shop added it hopes more vendors from the former market become involved. “Its about taking part in a community,� he said. There is also talk of working towards re-launching the market in 2014. Meetings would begin in the fall and people interested in participating or offering ideas can email marchevaniermarket@gmail.com. There is also a petition available to sign online, at chn.ge/14Z5egd -- or visit one of the stands at the market locations this Saturday.

Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Only weeks after the market was all but cancelled, merchants in Vanier have joined forces to support a different kind of famers market this summer. The Quartier Vanier merchants association announced the cancellation of its summer market at the end of June, before it had the chance to open for the first weekend of the season. Only a week after that announcement, local merchants began stepping up to the plate to offer tiny pieces of land to local famers and longtime vendors in the neighbourhood. It started with gourmet food shop Jacobson’s on July 6, when owner Susan Jacobson let Rock’n’Root Farms sell their organic produce at a market stand outside the store. Cheryl Cadrin of Rock’n’Root said after the news of the cancellation, having a new location to sell in the area was very important to them. “For us, it was our only market. It was a good fit for us and when we lost it, we were scrambling a bit,� Cadrin said. “I think I was more disappointed because we had been there for five years and we had been cultivating a clientele and they were loyal to us. We wanted to be there for them.� Since that first day at Jacobson’s, Cadrin started a petition to ask residents if they wanted a market back permanently for 2014. “I don’t think it was right for Vanier to not have a market. It’s important,� she said. “It’s fair for people to have an option to buy local. The petition is also about asking if Vanier is interested, I can only say what I think. “Who wouldn’t want one, but that’s my business. I get excited about it, but this is on the community. I want the community to own this.� And the community has come out in support. According to Vanier Community Association president Mike Bulthuis, residents and members of the association began expressing their disappointment regarding the cancelled market. Now, the association is helping spread the word about Rock’n’Root’s new location and about new business owners stepping up to offer space for local farmers. “Our role is to try and rally the community and find ways for residents to support the market,� Bulthuis said. It started on July 20, at Maison

News - City council is doubling down by asking the province if Ottawa can have two gambling sites. While council had already indicated a preference to see gambling options expanded where they already exist in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the Rideau Carleton Raceway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the vote on July 17 means councillors would like to see another casino site in addition to keeping at least 21 gaming tables at the raceway. The move was in response to what Mayor Jim Watson and councillors have been hearing from residents, said Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who proposed the motion. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson represents the raceway in his ward. He said he brought the largest petition he can recall a politician presenting: a 70,000-signature petition supporting saving jobs at the raceway by keeping gambling there.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There must be a fair and open process for casino bidding,â&#x20AC;? Watson said, adding that he feels there has been plenty of consultation on the issue already. All members of council supported Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to refer the discussion to a special meeting of the ďŹ nance and economic development committee on Aug. 26 so public delegates could come speak to the concept of creating two gambling zones in Ottawa. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the idea of having two casinos has unanimous support around the council horseshoe. One of the most vocal casino opponents, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, dissented on the parts of the motion asking for two gambling zones for Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is conďŹ rmation of a pre-determined outcome that we want more gaming in Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? Deans said, noting that perhaps the city might want to do more consultation on the matter before coming to that

Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney proposed a motion at council calling for the province to allow two gambling sites in Ottawa. conclusion. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why she voted in favour of sending the matter to the committee on Aug. 26. The move made other councillors happy, though, because it removed the perception that city council is favouring one community institution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the raceway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; over another, like the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre. Sens owner Eugene Melnykâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleas to let him bid for a casino at the arena were shot down at a recent committee meeting when councillors voted to limit gambling to the raceway. Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion at the July 17 council meeting could reopen the door for a casino in Kanata or elsewhere in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This somehow devolved (into something) about saving jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, who was the seconder on Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153; The debate about gambling resulted in pitting two community resources against each other â&#x20AC;Ś This motion restores fairness.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives everyone a chance to be at the table,â&#x20AC;? said OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette, who was among the councillors who wanted to protect the raceway but be fair to other casino bidders at the same time. But it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the ďŹ rst time the mayor has asked for two gambling sites in Ottawa. Watson has previously written to the Ontario Lottery and Gam-

ing Corporation and provincial ofďŹ cials to ask for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;satellite facilityâ&#x20AC;? to complement gaming operations at the raceway. He received no response. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different than asking for two gambling sites in the form of two gaming zones for Ottawa, Watson said, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping for more success this time around â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially since he now has the support of council. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry was among those who pointed out that the city has misstepped as it tries to react to a process dictated by the OLG. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a lesson in what not to do,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard to turn a big ship after itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been sailing for a while.â&#x20AC;? Other councillors wanted city staff to prepare a report on the socio-economic impacts of expanding gambling in Ottawa. Council has already ordered such a report, but it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be undertaken until after a casino location had been proposed. If Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion was accepted by the committee in August, it would kick off such a study, but only for the raceway location. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Agli said he planned to ask for an amendment to ensure the study looks at the possibility of more than one gambling site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should understand what kind of problem we could be creating,â&#x20AC;? said Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, who is not in favour of a new casino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a way, the point is moot to me today about how many casinos we have and where they are located.â&#x20AC;? Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, who leads the board of health, said there are currently about 13,000 people addicted to gambling in Ottawa. The city has around $740,000 in funding for treatment and prevention programs, but public health ofďŹ cials say Ottawa needs more like $4 million to address the needs of the gambling-addicted population here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of the problem with the expansion of gambling is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not taking the addiction issue seriously,â&#x20AC;? Holmes said.

City pushes Arts Court plan forward despite funding rejection Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city pushed forward with plans to redevelop Arts Court last week despite the federal government rejecting its request for $9 million needed to build the project. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he found out the feds tossed out the funding request by reading an Ottawa Citizen story about the letter, which was sent to deputy city manager Steve Kanellakos on July 9. “I’m disappointed because we’ve asked for $9 million. To be brutally honest, we didn’t expect $9 million, but we expected something,” Fleury said. “To turn around and say ‘Ottawa, don’t come to the feds for all your priorities’ – we’re not.” The project is still listed at the top priority in the city’s arts, culture and heritage action plan and it’s the only request the city made under the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund more than a year ago, Fleury said. The letter from Marie Moliner, regional executive director of Canadian Heritage, says that the city’s $9-million request amounts to a third of the total annual budget for that nationwide fund. Fleury, Mayor Jim Watson and city staff were set to discuss next steps and strategies for re-opening the funding discussion. “This project needs to happen, but I

A 23-storey privately owned tower and a box-shaped Ottawa Art Gallery are the most striking features in the city’s Arts Court expansion. The designs were presented at a public meeting on May 14. don’t know at this point,” Fleury said. “It leaves me with a lot of questions, a lot of doubt. I’m still confident that in the end we’ll find some way of getting in done – maybe not in the same timeline.” Those questions went unanswered even as the city’s planning committee was asked to support rezoning the site to pave the way for the future privatepublic partnership redevelopment. The committee unanimously approved that rezoning, including permitting a 23-storey tower at the cor-

ner of Waller and Daly streets, on July 16. The city is hoping to make $3.5 million to put towards the project by selling the air rights for that tower, which could become a hotel, condo tower or offices, depending on a proposal from an interested private builder. A couple residents of a neighbouring Claridge condo tower spoke to the committee to warn them against adding more people into an area that’s already packed with people and noisy trucks.

“You guys don’t understand…” an emotional Graham Gleddie shouted at the committee. “It’s a hellish nightmare of noise from truck traffic.” Gleddie has been living in his condo for four years and said he didn’t think the city could allow more people to live or sleep in hotel rooms in the area until it removes the heavytruck route from the downtown core. Another resident from that condo building pointed out that there is nothing stopping a private developer from coming back to the city to ask

for an even taller tower. But the city’s planning manager, John Smit, said the city wouldn’t approve that change and the Ontario Municipal Board would probably reject an appeal because it wouldn’t match the city’s planning bible – it’s Official Plan. The $36-million expansion would also include a large addition to the existing Arts Court building – a heritage complex that used to be home to the courthouse and registry office. One of the architects the city hired for the project, Mitchell Hall, said the new Ottawa Art Gallery portion would be a 3,260 square-metre “elegant box” tucked in along the existing northsouth stone wall that divides the site. The city is looking at having the gallery building serve as a billboard for art, perhaps using projection or a digital sign, Hall said. A 250-seat screening room, a café and a black-box theatre on Waller Street for the University of Ottawa is also part of the concept. The university will pay $5 million for that portion while the city and other potential partners such as the federal government would cover the remaining $31 million. Open space, seating areas and sculpture courts would buffer the new buildings along Daly, leading into the main entrance, and along Waller. The adjacent former jailhouse is now a privately-owned hostel and not up for redevelopment.

News - More than 22,000 orders of haddock made a huge difference recently for Ottawa youth needing treatment for alcohol and drug abuse. A small fish and chips shop in Manor Park called Cats Fish and Chips made a donation of $23,177 to the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre on July 15. Dave Waltham, owner of the shop, said the year-old business pledged last May when it opened to donate a dollar from every sale of haddock “Community has always been important to us,” Waltham said. “We wanted from day one to donate to a local charity.” The Bells Corners resident

said he heard about the Dave Smith Youth and Treatment Centre when he was at church one day and decided it was all he needed to decide to help out. The orders added up and when the restaurant welcomed founder Dave Smith and board member Stephen McGill to accept the cheque, Smith said he was overwhelmed by the amount Waltham presented to them. The money means a lot to the centre, which is currently working at raising $5 million to build a permanent facility in Carp. “We don’t ask the families of the youth who come for a dime and the government won’t give us any money for the buildings,” Smith said. “When people

make this kind of investment, locally, the money stays here and this donation, at this time, was unbelievable.” The centre helps young people aged 13-21 who are battling drug and alcohol addiction. It began, Smith said, 23 years ago with a day-treatment centre on Bronson Avenue and has since expanded to a 10-bed residential facility in Carp and a 14-bed residential facility in Carleton Place. The new building would feature 30 beds in one location. Smith said the new location, which would replace the existing two, would give counselors currently travelling between the different locations more time with clients.McGill said the board has so far raised $700,000 for the new building and the plan is to raise the remainder and begin construction in the next two to three years. “The donation is critical to us operating,” McGill said. “Substance abuse is an issue amongst youth and really touches every corner of our community, they literally come from every family, every circumstance in Ottawa and the fact that we can offer a place to go is important.” Waltham said the shop is going to continue to donate to the centre, but will soon put their efforts towards another local charity. “We are thinking of expanding to different charities, there are lots of small charities that need help,” he said.

Now you see it, soon you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

O

nce again, city council has come up with a politically-savvy solution to the question of where to build a casino: build two of them. Last week, council members were slapping each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backs and tweeting merrily after they agreed to ask the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation for permission to build two gaming facilities in Ottawa. Never mind that the OLG has already denied such a request before. The provincial gaming authority has said numerous times that Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;zoneâ&#x20AC;? can only accommodate one casino. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote is little more than an attempt to assuage the complaints from Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, who is hoping to bring a gaming facility to Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. If the OLG turns down Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for two casinos, the city will move ahead with its default location: the racetrack. This marvelous sleight of hand highlights the fact the casinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location is a purely political decision made before any studies, consultation or rational debate has taken place. Earlier this month, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance committee approved sole sourcing the casino, located at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway, a motion proposed and pushed by Mayor Jim Watson. Never mind that the

mayor was flip-flopping on his previous promise to make the selection process an open competition. This was a decision based on political pressure. Lobby groups and supporters of the racetrack made their preference known, likely highlighting the 2014 municipal election date on Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calendar. Melnyk wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly thrilled with the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion. Lawyer in tow, he showed up at the finance committee meeting and blasted council for not providing a level playing field for bids, suggesting the process wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly legal. An independent legal review indicated it is legal. It certainly isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t how council has conducted business in the past. Usually, the city allows an open bidding process and holds public consultations to figure out if residents want a proposed building/business in the first place. But why destroy a perfectly sound political decision with the principles of good decision making and democratic tradition? The mayor has dealt himself a winning hand, getting council to approve a plan that pleases everyone, yet has small chance of approval. We can only admire the shuffling ability of the mayor, who, like an experienced card shark has deftly maneuvered council to approve his motion. Two casinos? Now you see it, soon you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.

A place where you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be an expert

H

ereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scene from a cottage weekend. See if it seems familiar to you. Six guys, probably late teens, are on one of those pontoon boats. A pontoon boat is notoriously hard to manouevre, especially in a wind, and these guys are fishing off it. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get through a narrow opening between two islands. The opening is shallow and the bottom is covered with large boulders. The boat is trying to find its way through. To make matters more interesting, at least one of the anglers has caught bottom. So theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to avoid the boulders, get through the opening and also get the guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lure off the bottom. One of the guys stands in the bow, watching for rocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop!â&#x20AC;? he yells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reverse! Reverse!â&#x20AC;? The boat reverses, clumsily. Somehow the snagged hook is freed and the pontoon boat backs out of the narrow passage and safely into open water. Somehow the proverb: â&#x20AC;&#x153;God helps drunks and little children,â&#x20AC;? springs to mind, except that these guys werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t little and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be drunks either.

is a large amount of enjoyment. What a relief it is, after the exacting demands of the city, to get to a place where it really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how much skill you have. Sure, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to be good at something. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also nice when it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter all that much. Beside a lake, there are no bosses, no alarm clocks, no buses to run after. Mastery of software does not enter into your existence. There are no updates to anything. There is no such thing as a cc, never mind a blind cc. There is no traffic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; once you get there. There is very little in the way of selfimprovement. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that at some lakes, children are offered lessons in this or that, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long and the kids might learn something they might be able to teach you. Not that it matters if you learn it all that well. The demands of cottage life are quite rudimentary. You have to be able to tolerate the noise children make. You have to be patient and learn to read a story out loud several times in a row. You have to be the kind of person dogs like. Knowing a few simple card games comes in handy. There are some basic safety things you have to learn, but they are

mostly common sense. Even driving a boat, while not all that easy, can be accomplished by a non-expert, because the margin of error on a lake is wider than on a city street. Along the way, you find and settle into the activities at which you can be an expert, that you might have forgotten over the year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taking a nap, telling jokes, eating gooey desserts, singing off-key, walking through the woods, exaggerating, unloading a boat, using a fly-swatter and figuring out whodunit. Easy. The rest of it is eating and sleeping, getting along with people and knowing when to wear a hat.

Addiction is the devil inside

I

was very saddened to hear of the death of Glee actor Cory Monteith earlier this month. That he died of a heroin and alcohol overdose made his death even more tragic. Drug addiction â&#x20AC;&#x201C; alcohol, tobacco, prescription or street drugs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a powerful demon. Addiction is something that affects most of us, either personally, or because we have friends or family that struggle with addiction. Despite this, many of us fail to sympathize with addicts. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the homeless person wandering the street, begging for change to help him get his next fix, or the successful, middle-aged, middle-class woman secretly downing a bottle of wine each night, we have little understanding of addiction and even less sympathy for the addict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they just get help?â&#x20AC;? Anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever dealt with addiction, however, can relate to the old Christian adage, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The closer you are to God, the harder the Devil works to tempt you.â&#x20AC;? Addiction is a lot like that. For Monteith, this seems to be a harrowing reality. Not only was the actor fresh out of re-

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse habilitation, but he died on the night he had dinner with the co-founder of Project Limelight. Monteith was planning to support the theatre program for children in Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Downtown Eastside, best known as the poorest postal code in Canada. Myself, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a life-long struggle with nicotine. I grew up in a smoking household and started smoking at the ridiculously young age of 13; this, despite spending most of my childhood begging my relatives to quit. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve quit many times over my adult life, always eventually returning to the comfort, satisfaction and inspiration that only cigarettes seem to provide. For those who are fortunate enough to have escaped addiction, it may seem there are lots of supports available to addicts. This is far from true. Young people, in particular,

face up to two yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; waiting time for psychological services in Ontario. One report out of Quebec suggests as many as 220,000 people in the province require detoxification from drugs or alcohol, yet there are just a few handfuls of residential rehabilitation programs, most requiring patients to pay out-of-pocket. As a result, too much pressure is put on family doctors and others on the frontline, who have neither the training nor resources to support addicts. For those, like me, who have struggled on and off with a nicotine addiction, it often comes down to individual resources and the ability to resist evil temptation in the longer term. Unfortunately, for those addicted to equally powerful street or prescription drugs, the same is frequently true. At the height of a successful career, at the beautiful age

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

of 31, ready to give back to his community as a mentor, Monteith, a wealthy celebrity and anti-drug crusader, took heroin and died. It seems unfathomable at a time when Monteith was, to use my previous metaphor, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as close to Godâ&#x20AC;? as he could get. Unfortunately, the devil was working pretty hard that night. A recent fundraising success in Ottawa is perhaps a great example of how we can work collectively to take the pressure off frontline medical workers and dedicate more to treatment and rehabilitation. Last year, a local fundraiser spearheaded by former police chief, (now Senator), Vern White, raised $2.25 million to build a 30-bed facility at the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre for youth addicts. White rated the fundraiser as one of the biggest successes in his 30 years as a police officer. Given how close the devil resides in all of us, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to agree.

Byelections important for Ontario residents To the editor, The Ottawa East Newsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cynical editorial in the July 11 edition on Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s byelections cannot go by unchallenged. The Ontario budget provided much-needed investments in public transit, infrastructure and employment programs and home care initiatives. It also lowered auto insurance rates. More needs to be done, particularly in the area of improving social assistance. The Ottawa East News fails to acknowledge any of this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; opting instead to parrot Opposition leader Tim Hudak. Elections Ontario has initi-

ated strategies to encourage Ontario residents to vote, with new voting options, a dedicated website and social media outreach efforts: wemakevotingeasy.ca. Your bizarre editorial fails to mention any of this. Politics does matter. You have a responsibility to discuss the issues and accurately inform your readers, not condemn the process. Your editorial does a disservice to readers who turn to the Ottawa East News for information and not a diatribe on issues which matter to the people of Ontario. Tony Wohlfarth The Glebe

Lowertown receives update on Bingham Park rehabilitation Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The revitalization of one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest parks is set to get underway in Lower-

town. Since 2010, residents living near Bingham Park have been working with their councillor and city staff, as well as raising money to help fix up the ag-

ing park. In 2011, Lowertown Community Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead for the project, Michael Kirkpatrick, was contacted by a local charity called the Chance Foundation that wanted to help

the community refurbish the park. For Kirkpatrick, it was exactly what the group needed to make the dream a reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was about to give up and then Chance (Foundation) came along,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They saved this project. They have helped in so many ways.â&#x20AC;? On July 9, the community met to receive an update about the plans for the park at Routhier Community Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonight we are looking for feedback about what people want to see in the park,â&#x20AC;? Kirkpatrick said. Chance Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president Shannon Tessier, chief operating officer Christian Tessier and director of charitable activities Laura Gowland attended the meeting to show the plans on the park rehabilitation project to residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want this project into the action phase,â&#x20AC;? Shannon Tessier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We strongly agree that recreation helps build community, and that is why we are here. That is why we love this project so much.â&#x20AC;? Chance Foundation came on board in early 2011, granting the community $20,000 for the project. Tessier started the foundation in 2007 with a project that saw medical supplies donated to a hospital in Ecuador. Later, Chance Foundation partnered with the Max Keeping Foundation in 2011 to help support 30 low-income children, allowing them to participate in extra-curricular activities. It also opened a pre-school in Nicaragua. Now the foundation has set its sights to make a difference in Ottawa and after many interviews on many interesting projects, Chance Foundation decided to help upgrade the only large community park on the west side of Lowertown. Kirkpatrick credits Chance Foundation for helping wade through the application process for a major capital grant from the city as well as reach out to playground equipment companies to see what was possible for the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have been incredible. They have done everything and more,â&#x20AC;? Kirkpatrick said. With Chance Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution of $20,577, a do-

Bingham Park will be receiving a face lift this fall thanks to the collaboration between the community and a non-profit organization. nation from Rideau Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Desjardins of $13,633 and donations collected through the community association of $2,790 the group applied for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major capital grant - which matches every dollar raised by the community. In total, the community has $74,000 to upgrade the park. In addition, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury has donated $1,000 recently, which is not a part of the major funding grant because it was given after the application. For the project, Tessier explained the budget needs to compensate for any unexpected occurrences, so $7,500 will be held back to pay for unforeseen costs. A survey conducted by Chance Foundation from June 2012-13 helped identify what the community would like to see at the park. The top three things people identified were a play structure for older children and more benches and landscaping. The wadding pool, the hockey rink and the tennis courts were identified as some of the most used facilities in the park and residents asked for those to remain. A request to turn the current baseball diamond into a soccer field was also noted, but the costs, Tessier said, were too high. Gowland said the main items the foundation believes could improve the park is to add more benches, a new play structure and games tables and picnic tables.

The benches will seat three, Gowland explained, in an effort to prevent loitering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the comments that struck me from the survey was that many expressed interest in accommodating patients from Bruyère, one even mentioning that there is a man who brings his wife everyday for lunch in the park and they watch the kids play,â&#x20AC;? Gowland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me this is very important. This shows the park offers a sense of community.â&#x20AC;? The dozen residents who attended the meeting agreed and although the group discussed fine-tuning the details of how many benches and where the benches should go -- everyone agreed the foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal was great. The play structure will be a climbing structure made of ropes and steal. It will be provided and installed by Dynamo Playgrounds. Near the end of the meeting, the foundation asked to the group how the contingency fund could be used if that money goes unspent. Options included adding more benches, a permanent ping pong table, a blackboard for single tennis play in the tennis court or potentially placing a mural on the field house. A final decision was not made at the meeting, however -- this will be decided in the next two weeks. The goal is for the project to start and be complete this fall.

Cancer fundraiser puts best foot forward Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Janice VandenTillaart and JosĂŠ-Lucie Bastien show off a newly complete pedicure at a fundraiser at Bastienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shop, The Pedicure Shop, in Manotick Station on July 7. The fundraiser is to help VandenTillaart raise money for her 100 kilometre bike ride during the Ottawa Hospital Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ride the Rideau. Tillaartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scarves are for sale. The fundraiser got off to a wet start, but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop people from coming out and getting their toes and nails prettied up for the cause. The day also included a barbecue, pedicures, manicures, items for sale all to help raise funds to help support the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bike race. Food was donated by MacKinnonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foodland. THE RIDE

The Ottawa-to-Merrickville bike tour offers two ride options this year, a 100-km route which VandenTillaart is doing, and a new 50-km route. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, we expanded our ride to include a 50-km option in addition to our traditional 100km route,â&#x20AC;? said Michelle van Vliet, communications director at the foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did this to allow more people to participate and make an impact on the fight against cancer. While it is true you never forget how to ride a bike, many people we spoke to about getting involved were just too intimidated about training for a 100-km ride.â&#x20AC;? Van Vliet said currently there are 50 people registered in the 50-km option and 593 people registered in the 100-km route. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new distance has allowed teams to expand and involve more staff, friends and family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along with the option of volunteering as well,â&#x20AC;? van Vliet said. Both distances require the same fundraising commitment of $1,500. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We chose not to alter this amount for the shorter ride because Ride the Rideau is first and foremost a fundraiser for cancer research,â&#x20AC;? she said. In the four years the fundrais-

er has been in operation, it has raised $4.4 million for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. Due to chemo last year, VandenTillaart was unable to participate but she did attend the event to help volunteer at the finish line. VandenTillaart said she is nervous for the 100-km ride but is also very excited about the event and has been training since early January. After what is promised to be a hearty breakfast the ride be-

gins at the Ernst and Young Centre and runs along the Rideau River to downtown MerrickvilleWolford. Those who participate in the 50-km will be driven the other 50 to meet up with the other participants. Once in Merrickville, there will be a barbecue, entertainment, souvenir photos for teams and a complimentary motor coach back to Ottawa. For more information about the ride, to donate to VandenTillaartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team or any team visit ridetherideau.ca.

Hydro Ottawa helps rebuild Pullen Avenue Group Home

On July 16th, a group of Hydro Ottawa powerline maintainers and cable jointers generously lent their time and talents to connect the electrical service to the rebuilt Pullen Avenue Group Home, a 10-unit home for people with disabilities. Hydro Ottawa donated the use of their equipment, which included multiple vehicles, while its employees promptly answered the call to volunteer their time for this great cause. Personal Choice Independent Living, which operates the Pullen Avenue Group Home, is a non-proďŹ t organization offering housing and support services to people with physical disabilities and provides assisted living services to senior citizens in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donating time and talents for this cause just goes to show how much our employees care about the community they serve,â&#x20AC;? said Bryce Conrad, President and Chief Executive OfďŹ cer of Hydro Ottawa. This in-kind contribution by Hydro Ottawa and IBEW Local 636 saved the non-proďŹ t organization approximately $9,000, which will be redirected to programming.

News - When Janice VandenTillaart found out she was cancer-free, there was only one thing she wanted to do: ride a 100-kilometre race to help raise awareness and money for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. VandenTillaart got the news she was cancer-free in December 2012 and since that day she has been training for Ride the Rideau on Sept. 7. Setting up a team with family members and friends called Tour de Cure, the group needs to raise $7,000 to compete. So far they have raised $6,418 for the cause and on July 7 VandenTillaartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local spa, The Pedicure Shop in Manotick Station, decided to offer a helping hand by offering pedicures, manicures and other services with the cost donated to VandenTillaartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is a great client and when she said she was going to participate in the ride, I wanted to help,â&#x20AC;? said JosĂŠ-Lucie Bastien, owner of The Pedicure Shop. Bastien said a close family member suffered from cancer and she always wanted to give back to cancer research. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have donated throughout the years, but never had a chance to do something like this,â&#x20AC;? Bastien said. She added that in her business she has encounters many clients who suffer from different sicknesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the few short years I have come to know Janice she has bravely fought this disease and continues to be strong in her outlook on life,â&#x20AC;? Bastien said. Diagnosed with endometrial cancer in January 2012, VandenTillaart said since she began chemo therapy she started to loose the feeling in her hands and toes. So she became a regular customer at the Pedicure Shop for massages and pedicures to help keep feeling in her toes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;JosĂŠ has been so helpful,â&#x20AC;? VandenTillaart said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been her positive attitude, I found itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been really good for me. And she is so good with the therapy for me. She really knows her stuff.â&#x20AC;? To help with her circulation, she began knitting scarves, chemo hats and yoga mats, giving them away to others she met in the Ottawa Hospital, or selling them at the Rideau Curling Club to help raise money for the foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to have something to sell then to simply ask for money,â&#x20AC;? she said. The scarves have been one of the biggest means for VandenTillaartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraising. The pedicure shop owner is the only local shop that Vanden-

More mobility options with rebuilt street Continued from page 1

Transportation committee chairman Keith Egli, councillor for KnoxdaleMerivale Ward, has been a champion for the complete-street makeover. He said it â&#x20AC;&#x153;is not an inflexible template.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A complete street in Kanata might not look at all like a complete street in Coun. Chernushenkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ward,â&#x20AC;? Egli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are criteria, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a flexible approach to dealing with roads.

Deansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; south-end residents who commute by car could face a longer commute â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or be forced to find a different route â&#x20AC;&#x201C; since a rebuilt Main Street will have less traffic capacity at the busiest times.Project manager Ron Clark from Delcan, the consulting firm the city hired for the project, said Main Street can currently handle 1,200 vehicles in both direction per hour in peak times. When the street is rebuilt, it could handle 900 vehicles in

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our first entry as a city into that innovative city design,â&#x20AC;? he said. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans was opposed to Main Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s makeover as a complete street, but she said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also not against the idea of a complete street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the right place, at the right time, I do think this is something we should be pursuing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think this is the right time to be removing arterial roads.â&#x20AC;?

ever, or at least in the next decade, that the city would put a similar type of complete street in a suburban area. Harder and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume said they hoped getting a complete street for Main Street would make Old Ottawa East residents more willing to accept the Alta Vista Transportation Corridor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a new bridge from the hospital area across the Rideau River, connecting to Lees Avenue in Old Ottawa East. But Hume also said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the issue was as â&#x20AC;&#x153;dramaticâ&#x20AC;? as other councillors made it out to be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as drastic as going on a road diet or any of the other rhetoric surrounding it,â&#x20AC;? Hume said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to notice the function change. I fundamentally believe that. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen it happen on other roads.â&#x20AC;?

News - A portion of Ogilvie Road will be closed until Labour Day weekend to accommodate sidewalk curb renewals and the removal of bus bays. The affected section of Ogilvie is located between the Aviation Parkway and St. Laurent Boulevard. Crews will be working on the removal of bus bays, relocating catch basins and replacing concrete curbs on the road. Construction began on July 15 and will take place over the next six weeks in off-peak hours. In an effort to accelerate construction, starting in August, work will take place in the evening as well. The city says the work is tentatively scheduled to be complete by Labour Day, weather permitting. No OC Transpo routes along Ogilvie will be affected. The Ogilvie Road rehabilitation is part of Ottawa on the Move, a $340million city program aimed at ensuring there are a number of transportation choices for people before major construction of the light rail line begins and ahead of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th birthday celebrations in 2017. Projects include cycling infrastructure, bridges and structures and integrated road, sewer and water programs.

Children’s workshop cultivates minds Just Food programming focuses on importance of local food Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - Children are invited to get their hands dirty in Brewer Park’s community garden this weekend as part of a workshop for aspiring green thumbs. Just Food is hosting the event to get children aged 6 to 12 gardening and to teach them about how food grows. The workshop begins at 1 p.m. at Brewer Park Community Garden on July 28. Just Food organizer Agathe Moreau said the event will be full of activities to encourage the young gardeners. “The event is all about learning through games with different activities and it’s a

lot of fun,” Moreau said. “It’s good for the kids to be out in the garden out in the neighbourhood.” This is the third and last public workshop Just Food has organized for the summer. The other two events took place in Kanata and Old Ottawa East. The non-profit organization’s goal is to make healthy food available to everyone in the Ottawa region. It also helps run many different events at community gardens, helps communities set up their own gardens and runs workshops about things like gardening soils, planting techniques and food preservation.

The Brewer Park event runs for an hour and a half, with activities revolving around the importance of local food production, pollination and the role bugs play in the growth of fruits and vegetables. It will also look to show the value of community participation. “This will teach them all the fun parts of gardening, basic biology about plants, the importance of bugs, different kinds of soil and give them a better sense of where

their food comes from,” Moreau said. The program has been running since 2008, offering five workshops for children last year across the city. This year, the organization will only host two public events, with smaller events taking place over the summer as part of summer camp programming. Moreau said parents can drop their children off for the duration of the workshop, but are also welcome to stay and participate.

Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patience runs out for Sunday picnic

A

ll Mother needed for an excuse to have a picnic was a sunny and hot Sunday afternoon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after church, of course. Father thought the whole idea was nonsense when you could spend the afternoon having a little nap in the grape arbour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That once-a-year church picnic is enough for me,â&#x20AC;? he lamented. Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resting in the summer often moved him from the rocking chair in the kitchen with his feet on the oven door of the Findlay Oval to the grape arbour, where an old lawn chair and the two-seater swing sat in the cool haven of the overhanging grape leaves. But of course, as for the Sunday picnic, Mother overruled and we five children were thrilled beyond belief: we would be spending the afternoon on the banks of the Bonnecherre River. It was a hefty walk to get to the river, overloaded as we were with baskets of lunch, bats and balls, our swim suits and towels, Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newspapers, scrap books and diaries. I always had to take at least one

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories doll with me too. As long as Father had his pipe and a good supply of tobacco that was about all he was interested in lugging down to the river. The cook stove would be allowed to go out on Saturday night. That meant a cold breakfast, which further annoyed Father, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider any meal worth pulling a chair up to the table for unless it included meat and potatoes. But Mother let the stove die down because that meant a nice cool kitchen when we got back from our picnic on Sunday, a rare treat from a stove that blasted out blistering heat waves 24 hours a day, every other day of the week. As soon as we got back from church, and while the boys and Father tended to the last-minute chores in the barn, Audrey and Mother

would haul bowls of food out of the ice box that had been prepared the night before. This meant hard boiled eggs, mashed fine, sliced cold pork and roast beef, cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, and of course, a slab cake smothered in brown-sugar icing. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for thick sandwiches, sliced vegetables and a huge sealer of iced tea to be ready to pack into 11-quart baskets, all wrapped in an ample supply of clean flour-bag tea towels â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we had enough food to feed half of Renfrew County! We would pile as much as we could on the little wagon with wobbly tin wheels, which I used to hitch our old collie dog to so my dolls could be pulled around the yard. It was better than lugging the heavy baskets down to the river.

We always went to the same spot on the Bonnechere, where the old maple tree had long since fallen across the narrowest part of the river and where there was a wide grassy bank and more trees. My sister Audrey spread out two blankets and covered the little wagon with another to keep the lunch as cold as possible. Wearing short pants for bathing suits, my brothers were in the water almost as soon as we hit the river, Mother had propped herself against a tree with her books and papers spread around her, Audrey and I hid behind a tree and stripped off our clothes and got into two suits Aunt Freda had sent us from Chicago. They were scratchy, made of pure wool, and as soon as they were wet, went as hard as cement, but they were all we had. Father walked around with his pipe hanging out of his mouth, not looking at all pleased. He asked Mother when she planned on taking out the lunch, lamenting that what he had for breakfast couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really be called a decent meal. Mother said

lunch was a long way off, and he might as well settle down and have a little nap. The afternoon wore on. Emerson said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care if we ever went back home. The three boys had water fights, tried to catch fish with a makeshift pole and jumped off the fallen tree to see who could land the farthest. Audrey was reading her books borrowed from the Renfrew Library and I was playing with my doll, pretending she was a brand new baby and this was her first outing on a picnic. Well, Father never did settle down for a nap. He walked the shoreline, he lit and relit his pipe, and when he finally sat down with his back against a tree, he never took his eyes off the blanket covering the lunch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll head back to the barns to check on that cow that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look too good this morning,â&#x20AC;? he said. Even though we had yet to eat the lunch, I knew Father wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be back, and I knew too the cow had little to do with it. When the sun was heading for the west and we had eaten the lunch, the boys had

dried off, and everything was packed onto the little red wagon, Father still hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come back. Mother assured me he would be just fine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like picnics,â&#x20AC;? she said. We gathered up our belongings and started for home. I saw it before anyone else â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there was smoke coming out of the chimney over our house. Mother just let out a long and laboured sigh when I pointed it out to her. We opened the kitchen door to blazing heat and there was Father sitting at the old pine table. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bothered taking off his straw hat and in front of him was a dinner plate piled high with fried potatoes, slabs of salt pork and enough buttered bread to feed a family of six. The white granite tea pot was boiling on the stove and Father had opened a jar of preserves and they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in a fruit nappy, but in a soup bowl. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, so much for a nice cool kitchen,â&#x20AC;? was all Mother said. Finally, Father stopped shovelling in his food long enough to look up from his plate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A man canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be expected to work from dawn to dusk and survive on a sandwich and a piece of cake,â&#x20AC;? he said, taking another long slurp of hot tea from his saucer.

Blueberry coconut dessert light on calories, not on taste Lifestyle - This is a new twist on the classic angel food cake. Served with yogurt sauce, it makes a low-fat dessert. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Baking time: 40 minutes. Serves 12. INGREDIENTS

â&#x20AC;˘ 750 ml (3 cups) blueberries or raspberries â&#x20AC;˘ 430 g (1 package) angel food cake mix â&#x20AC;˘ 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) toasted flaked coconut â&#x20AC;˘ 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) zero per cent Greek yogurt â&#x20AC;˘ 75 ml (1/3 cup) part skim milk â&#x20AC;˘ 45 ml (3 tbsp) liquid honey â&#x20AC;˘ 5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla PREPARATION

of the coconut. Spoon the mixture evenly over the berries. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until the cake is a deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Let it cool on rack for 10 minutes then invert it onto baking sheet or cutting board. Carefully peel off the paper

and let it cool completely. Cover the cake with plastic wrap or foil. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making it a day ahead, refrigerate. To serve, mix together the yogurt, milk, honey and vanilla. Cut cake into squares and drizzle each with yogurt sauce. Garnish with the remaining coconut.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually putting the park back in Lansdowne Park,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Mayor Jim Watson as he hopped aboard a drilling machine to chip away at the concrete that is a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;symbol of the pastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for the park. The 7.3-hectare urban park at Lansdowne will cost $32.2-million to build and it will be open and mostly complete by next summer. In addition to a large lawn and 20 event spaces, the park will feature a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play area and water feature, a refrigerated outdoor ice rink and an orchard producing edible apples.

The lack of a shade study is also mentioned. Neighbours who attended the special meeting on the proposal, including immediate neighbour Christopher Hamilton, did not agree and questioned whether the build was in fact a conversion. “This is not a renovation or a conversion,” Hamilton said at the meeting. “I think she is going to knock it down.” In an interview, Chapman said the existing home’s structure will remain intact and serve as main walls for the new build. The existing basement will become the parking garage. Chapman, who is

an architect, added she is not concerned the home will fall down during construction. “It’s a matter of proper construction, but it will be fine,” she said. “Existing house the structure is there and is remaining.” On July 17, Chapman’s proposal went to the committee of adjustment, where it is seeking variances for the property. A request from Hamilton to postpone the meeting because of concerns regarding the plans to demolish Chapman’s portion of a shared semi-detached garage was granted to discuss the plans with other neighbours. Chapman said she has al-

ready planned to meet with Hamilton about the garage. “I am entitled to take down my garage and the garage is semi-detached, and there is a party wall that separates the two,” Chapman explained. “It just comes down to a need of discuss how we make sure his remaining garage wall is sturdy.” Although the heritage committee is involved in representing the neighbours regarding the proposal, this particular property is not in New Edinburgh’s designated heritage district. Chapman said she took that into consideration when she was purchasing property in the area. “It’s a very modern aes-

thetic,” she said. “I have chosen a modern aesthetic, because it looks great and I think people want that. I purposely bought in the non-heritage area because of that.” Mason said she was granted the opportunity to meet with city staff about the proposal and said she is hopeful this will help sort out some of the community’s larger concerns. According to Chapman, who has owned the property for the past three years, she has met with neighbours about her plans and fully intends to continue having an open conversation about the development.

Richmond Underground gets council OK City vows to work with NCC to get final approval Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ire over the proposed Richmond Underground lightrail route was nowhere to be seen as city council unanimously approved the plan on July 17. Despite hearing from a chorus of unhappy residents in a day-long transportation committee meeting two weeks before, councillors approved the route with no debate at the council meeting. Approving a route for the future extension of light rail west of Tunneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pasture means the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chosen Richmond Underground route is close to becoming enshrined in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation master plan. The route would start at Tunneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Station and run along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway in a trench for approximately 500 metres and traverses Rochester Field before dipping underground under Richmond Road for 700 m. Council has committed to looking at the cost and feasibility of burying that remaining 500 m through the ďŹ eld â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something the National Capital Commission, which owns the land, has said is essential if the city wants its blessing. The route would require the NCC to grant the city access to about a kilometre of its land along the parkway

and the NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board has twice voted against the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to run trains â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even in a trench â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along the road. The NCC issued a terse news release shortly after councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote to re-iterate that the federal agency has the ďŹ nal say over how its land along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway will be used. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Notwithstanding todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision by Ottawa city council of the Richmond Underground as the preferred corridor for the light rail, the decision as whether to build or not on federal lands in this corridor will remain with the National Capital Commission board of directors,â&#x20AC;? the news release reads. The NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board will focus on two key concerns when it looks to make a decision, the news release continues: unimpeded, continuous access to the land along the Ottawa River and minimal visual impact on the landscape quality and the experience of people who go there. Half an hour later, Mayor Jim Watson responded in an open letter sent to NCC board chairman Russell Mills and the media. Watson assured Mills the city will continue to work with the NCC on the route. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fully appreciate and understand that the NCC is in a position to establish conditions,â&#x20AC;?

City staff has already proposed changes aimed at pleasing the NCC that will inďŹ&#x201A;ate the bill by $80 million. The budget for the project, which now stands at $980 million, cannot stand to get any larger or it will impact the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to tackle other transit projects on its list, said city treasurer Marion Simulik.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time we whittle a dollar away, it eats into that $4 billion envelope for rail till 2031,â&#x20AC;? said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. During a transportation committee meeting on July 5, deputy city manager Nancy Schepers said staff has not done a â&#x20AC;&#x153;deep enough analysisâ&#x20AC;? to come up with a price tag for burying the remaining 500 m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d propose to do in the next phase,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Schepers did say there is a signiďŹ cant difference in cost between keeping the rail line above ground or burying it. Per kilometre, it costs approximately $40 to 60 million to build on the surface, but that number balloons to $100 to 150 million per kilometre for underground rail. The line wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin construction until 2017 or 2018. It would carry 1,300 passengers in each direction during the peak hour by 2031.

There is no such thing as a free kitten animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs or bring it to the OHS. People who take the free kitten, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sterilize it, and then let it roam are a major source of unwanted litters. In an Ottawa climate, one cat and her offspring can potentially produce a stunning 172,000 kittens in only seven years. Unvaccinated cats become a source of infection that eventually migrates to any place where cats come to together in signiďŹ cant numbers, such as a feral cat colony or a shelter. Please spay and neuter your pets and recognize that for a responsible pet owner, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no such thing as a free kitten.

Once even the early costs of caring for a young animal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as sterilization, vaccination and de-worming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are factored in, the OHS estimates that it will cost more than $600 for a kitten and even more for a puppy in its ďŹ rst year, not including food and basic supplies.

It seems like we have waited forever for summer weather, and now that it is here I thought it best to share a couple of tips on staying cool! Have a great summer. City offers tips to get relief and stay healthy during heat wave The City of Ottawa encourages residents to take advantage of its indoor pools, wading pools, splash pads, beaches and airconditioned facilities to get relief from the heat.

Heritage Ottawa will be hosting ab archaeological tour of LeBreton Flats on Aug. 10 starting at 2 p.m. outside the main door of the Canadian War Museum, located at 1 Vimy Pl. The cost is $10 or $5 for Heritage Ottawa members. This extended, two-hour tour will focus on the history of LeBreton Flats as revealed by the series of archaeological investigations that have been undertaken in the area over the past decade. Sites such as the Aubrey Row House, the Frith Tavern, St. Famille School and Duke Street will be discussed in the context of the mid- to late-nineteenth century community that was LeBreton Flats. The ground is uneven, so please wear good footwear. The tour guide will be Hugh Daechsel, senior archaeologist at Golder Inc. For more information, visit heritageottawa.org or call 613230-8841.

Aug. 4 Heritage Ottawa will be hosting a walking tour of the Rideau Canal on Aug. 4 starting at 2 p.m. at the Bytown Museum. The cost is $10 or $5 for Heritage Ottawa members. In 2007, the Rideau Canal was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and on this tour you will hear about the fascinating history of the Ottawa locks where the oldest public building in Ottawa was constructed in 1827, known today as the Bytown Museum. The tour will lead to Majorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hill Park where the remains of the house and the statue in honour of Colonel John By, the man responsible for the construction of the canal between 1826 and 1832, are found. Be prepared to climb a steep hill. The tour guides will be Michel PrĂŠvost, chief archivist at the University of Ottawa and David Jeanes, urban activist and author of five downtown heritage tours. For more information, visit heritageottawa.org or call 613-230-8841.

Indoor pools have evening hours until 8 p.m., with select pools providing public swimming until 9:30 p.m. During heat warnings, hours previously scheduled for lane swims and generally limited to adults are available for public open swims for all ages. City wading pools are open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with select pools remaining open until 7 p.m. on certain days. More than 100 spray pads in City parks offer cooling relief daily from early morning until 9 p.m. City beaches are all open today and operate daily from noon to 7 p.m.
