Super sale coming to Centretown First community garage Garage Sale to take place Sept. 7 Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

Community - Move over, Glebe. There’s a new garage sale in town. Its organizer hopes the “super” garage sale for Centretown will be wackier and more diverse than its well-established counterpart south of the Queensway. The Super Centretown Garage Sale is set to take place Saturday, Sept. 7 in an area bounded by the Rideau Canal, Bronson Avenue, Laurier Avenue and Highway 417. Anyone can participate by setting up their wares on their private property. Having lived in Centretown for more than 30 years, organizer Wynn Quon said he’s seen a few garage sales here and there, but never a large community-wide event similar to the Great Glebe Garage Sale or neighbourhood yard sales held in other parts of the city. “I can imagine the piles of stuff that are in people’s basements,” said Quon, who serves as a director on the board of the Centretown Community Health Centre. In a similar vein as the Glebe sale, Quon is asking vendors to consider donating 10 per cent of their profits to support the health centre.

Quon anticipates there may only be a dozen vendors participating in the first year of the sale, but he’s committed to helping it grow and evolve. “My role is to get the ball rolling,” he said. “People don’t even need to talk to me, they can just put things out on the lawn … it’s very grassroots.” The sale is happening at a good time for returning university students looking to pick up reasonably priced furnishings, but it’s also a chance for neighbours to meet each other and get caught up in an air of festivity, Quon said. Quon is looking for help putting up posters around Centretown. People can go to the website, www.supercentretown. com, to download posters to put up themselves. The website is also where people can get in touch with Quon to volunteer to put up posters he is printing. Quon is encouraging people to use the hashtag #supercentretown to share cool and quirky finds on Twitter and Instagram and to help promote the event. He plans to run some contests just for fun on the website, with categories like “weirdest object” bought or sold. The working prize is a box of SuzyQ Doughnuts.

CAPITAL PRIDE FESTIVAL

Connected to your community

Capital Pride gears up for this year’s Festival Parade returns to Bank Street amid LRT construction Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - The organizers of the 2013 Capital Pride Festival are looking forward to taking their signature parade back to its roots this year. Held Aug. 16 to 25, the festival will see over 30 LGBT groups from the Ottawa area stage more than 75 events throughout the city. In a break from recent years – due to the construction of Ottawa’s downtown LRT tunnel – the Aug. 25 Pride Parade will be moved from Wellington Street to Bank Street, home of the city’s newly designated LGBT Village. The return to Bank Street is something organizers are excited about, given the street hasn’t hosted the parade in nearly a decade. “Its roots are on Bank Street,” said Brody Fraser, Capital Pride’s vice-chair of communications. “It’s a great place and has a much more intimate feel to it.” As part of the LGBT Vil-

lage’s official designation, the City of Ottawa installed branding that signifies the cultural heritage of the area – generally agreed as being located between James and Nepean streets and spanning a block on both sides of Bank. Local shop owners in the village and the committee members who nurture it boosted the theme by installing their own flags and lights. Presenting sponsor of this year’s Capital Pride Festival is Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, while TD Bank returns as a major festival sponsor. “More businesses on Bank Street are taking part in the festival this year,” said Fraser. “Henry’s (Camera) is working with our marketing team to set up a photo booth at the festival.” The festival as a whole has evolved since it was first held in 1986 – both in terms of size and community acceptance. In the ensuing years, more emphasis has been placed on recognizing the many supporters and advocates who have worked to further the cause of LGBT rights and acceptance. Reflecting this, 2013 will see an expansion of the parade marshals program, with Jay Koornstra of Bruce House serving as grand parade mar-

The event begins at 6 a.m. at the main entrance of 474 Elgin St., and will include the unfurling of the Pride flag at 9:10 a.m. The flag will be on display until Aug. 26. Other community events

across the city during the same day will celebrate Pride Week. An OC Transpo doubledecker bus will transport participants on a Rainbow Flag Raising tour, which includes

flags at the headquarters of OC Transpo, bylaw, fire and paramedics. The tour will end at city hall for the city’s official Pride flag-raising ceremony at 4 p.m.

The bus has been sponsored by Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark. A complete list of events taking place during Capital Pride Week is available at capitalpride.ca.

Period film shows off Ottawa’s heritage Production shoots at Cumberland Village, ByWard Market Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Arts - Ottawa’s heritage got the chance to shine as one of the lead roles in an 1812 period film shot in the city this summer. Tell the World, tells the story of the origins of the Seventh-Day Adventists. The film is set in 1812-70.The $5 million budget film employed more than 90 Ottawa-area actors, 1000 extras and 100 local crew members were hired. The film shot on location at the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, the ByWard Market, Upper Canada Village in Cornwall and at a studio in Ottawa South. Producer and president of Zed Filmworks Robert Menzies said it’s the six film the company has produced and shot in Ottawa this year, the 21st film the company has filmed in the city since 2007 and the first period piece for the company. Menzies credits the city for the successful shoot. “We work in a small community and have to be aware of the public,” Menzies said. “But the public is great. Everyone is friendly. That’s what’s great about Ottawa - people are excited to have us here.” According to Menzies, one of the hardest things was to make sure the locations, costumes and props were historically correct. “It was a very big challenge - and this is why I am so proud of my Ottawa crew, they really rose to the challenge,” he said. Costumes were acquired through local museums as well as located and shipped from across the country. The art department built 25 sets at the company’s Letrim Road converted warehouse stu-

dio and the film was able to utilize some of the city’s best heritage locations, like the Cumberland Village Heritage Museum. The crew had to remove museum signs and wheel chair ramps but that was about it. “It was great, because it is a village,” Menzies said. Shooting in the market had its challenges, mostly because the busy downtown tourist spot doesn’t stop because of a film, but Menzies said businesses, residents and tourists were all accommodating. “This is what is so good about shooting in Ottawa, everybody is there to help,” Menzies said. “We worked with the BIA, Invest Ottawa and the residents who lived in the condos in the area and everybody gave us full reign to do what we needed to do.” The producer, always thinking about dollars being spent and time allotted to get things done, credits the community’s support to shooting on schedule and without any problems. The film is wrapped and post-production will take place in Australia, who supplied most of the funding for the production. The intent is to have a theatrical release. As far as the little Ottawa film company that can, there are no breaks in-between projects. With the upcoming release of the House at the End of the Street, staring Jennifer Lawrence, as well as a recently wrapped shoot with Two and a Half Men star John Cryer, the producer said it’s onward and upward to the next film. For more information about Zed Filmworks’ Tell the World or its other productions please visit zedfilmworks.com.

Free Presto card offer has ended Cards now cost $6, plus a minimum $10 fare purchase Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - If you’re still looking for a free Presto card, you’re out of luck. As of yesterday, Aug. 14, the city expected to have distributed all 145,000 smart cards, which can be loaded with a bus pass or cash value to pay for trips on buses and the OTrain. Ecopass users, students and selected community groups will still get free Presto cards as planned. City of Ottawa employees who used Ecopass will get Presto cards in September and federal government employees will switch over in October. Students who receive OC Transpo passes through their school boards will get the Presto card when they return to school in September, and OC Transpo will set up on campus at Algonquin College and La Cité Collégiale to hand out free cards once classes begin. From now on, it will cost $6 to obtain each card (including replacements). The user can then go online to prestocard.ca or to an OC Transpo sales and information centres to purchase and

load a pass or cash balance, called “e-purse.” Presto cards are available in person at: • Rideau Station • Lincoln Fields Station • St. Laurent Station • Place D’Orléans Station • City hall (110 Laurier Ave. W.) • Ben Franklin Place (101 Centrepointe Dr., Nepean) • Kanata client service centre (main level, 580 Terry Fox Dr.) The city has lowered fares on the Presto card to encourage riders to adopt the new form of payment. One adult fare using a Presto cash balance costs $2.72, while tickets cost $3 per ride and a cash fare will set you back $3.40 per ride. The minimum first purchase when a rider obtains a card in person or online is $10. If using a cash balance on your Presto card, the city recommends setting up the autoreload feature to automatically top up the card’s balance when it reaches a minimum amount. That avoids delays in reloading the cards, because cash added to your card online may not be accessible to use for 24 to 48 hours after reloading the card. September monthly passes will be available starting Aug. 18. Presto cards are not accepted on Para Transpo vehicles because the technology isn’t compatible.

Leadman takes expertise north to Bank Street BIA Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The Bank Street Business Improvement Area has a new leader. Christine Leadman, former city councillor and current executive director of the Glebe Business Improvement Area, is headed north on Bank Street to take over the reigns of the downtown BIA. “I think anything new is exciting,” Leadman said. “I think for every location, every job you take on, the new things you learn, the creativeness ... your mind is active and the end result is the community benefit that arrives from that.” Leadman is a BIA executive veteran. She led the charge in making Westboro the business and community hub it is today as the executive director for that area for more than 14 years. After serving as Kitchissippi ward councillor from 2006-10 she then took on the role as the Glebe BIA’s executive director. Now, Leadman said she is looking forward to taking on a new challenge.

“Downtown Bank Street used to be Ottawa’s downtown, but it has been really overshadowed because of other successful streets, like, and I hate to say it, Westboro, and that shouldn’t be the case,” Leadman said. “It’s not that the bones aren’t there, but it’s that it’s just gotten lost.”

“I think for every location, every job you take on, the new things you learn, the creativeness ... your mind is active and the end result is the community benefit that arrives from that.” CHRISTINE LEADMAN

Leadman said the Bank Street BIA board has been very proactive as of late, working hard with beautification efforts and promotion and that she is looking forward to working with them to continue along the

same path. She added the street has a lot of areas to focus on, including a younger demographic moving into the downtown condominiums, many new and different types of businesses opening up along the street and the strong lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community. Leadman said it is just a matter of finding a way to tie them all together. A co-founder of Westfest in Westboro, Leadman said she is looking forward to working with the Bank Street BIA’s marketing committee to discuss organizing similar events. “It’s now about sitting down with the committee and brainstorming, talk about what the great things that are going on. It’s through that kind of interaction and team work that you come up with the ideas,” she said. Having worked in the Glebe for the past three years, Leadman said she is going to miss the community spirit and the friends she has made. “I am just north of there, so it’s not so bad,” Leadman added. “Any good you do will benefit all of Bank Street (including the Glebe area).” Leadman officially takes on the role starting in September.

Road safety advocates honoured Community - Thirteen individuals and organizations in Ottawa have been recognized with Road Safety Achievement Awards for outstanding contributions to road safety initiatives in the community. The awards were handed out by Glen Murray, Ontario minister of transportation and minister of Infrastructure, and Mayor Jim Watson. “These awards recognize outstanding individuals and organizations that are helping to make our roads safer for everyone,â€? he said. “By recognizing these achievements, we are also helping to raise awareness of road safety while reminding people to travel safely and responsibly.â€? “Many recipients are committed volunteers who are making our roads safer for all users, including our cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and motorists,â€? Watson said. Ottawa’s 2012 Road Safety Achievement Awards nominees are: • A1 Secure Initiative (Ottawa Public Health’s car seat program) • Barbara Mews (recipient of the road safety professional award) • Cycling Safety Awareness Program • Hand in Hand Committee

News - Two addiction treatment centres in downtown and west Ottawa experienced instances of vandalism late last month. The Ontario Addiction Treatment Centre at 1318 Carling Ave. had a window smashed on July 26, while the clinic at 401 Somerset St. was vandalized with grafďŹ ti on the same day. There are three OATC clinics in Ottawa, the third being in Vanier. According to an employee who asked not to be identiďŹ ed, the vandalism occurred on an afternoon when staff had to close the clinics three hours early in order to attend a training course. The early closure had been publicized in notices posted on clinic doors. OATC clinics were ďŹ rst opened in 1995 for treatment of opioid addictions, utilizing opioid agonist therapy, also known as methadone treatments. Offshoot services in-

clude treatment for alcohol and other addictions, as well as services for HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C. Normally, hours at the Carling and Vanier clinics run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., while the Somerset clinic is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On July 26, the Somerset clinic closed at 2 p.m. and the Carling location at 1:30 p.m. While the damage has since been repaired, it is the second time in a month that an Ottawa OATC has been vandalized. The OATC employee said that even though the early closures were well advertised, some might not have taken notice, adding that patients who frequent the clinic are rarely violent. Friday, the employee added, is generally the busiest day of the week for OATC locations in Ottawa. When asked to describe a typical Friday, the employee said the Somerset location normally sees about 165 patients seeking methadone treatments and a similar number undergoing drug testing.

News - The mayor’s annual Charity Golf Classic raised $60,000 for recently rebranded Youth Ottawa, according to estimates by Youth Ottawa executive director Lynne Denis. Youth Ottawa, formerly known as Child and Youth Friendly Ottawa, is a local non-proďŹ t that aims to help youngsters drive change in the capital. Denis said the total wasn’t ofďŹ cial yet, but was pleased with the turnout at the organization’s largest fundraiser. Adam Moscoe, chair of the organization’s board of directors, said 26 foursomes turned out for the event, at $900 per team. Mayor Jim Watson said the crowd was a little smaller than the record breaking-crowd that hit the Barrhaven green last year. “But it gives people more room to play and everyone’s having fun,â€? he said.

Be loud, be proud Ottawa

C

apital Pride returns to Ottawa starting this weekend. The theme for this year’s festival is Be Loud, Be Proud. This is a message that all Canadians can take to heart, to celebrate our nation’s acceptance of all citizens regardless of their race, language, religion or sexual identity. These are basic human rights entrenched in Canada’s Charter, despite lingering opposition from fringe groups. Canada’s good example is even more noticeable when compared with our international counterparts. Russia, for instance, has drawn criticism from across the globe for a law that bans gay pride rallies and forbids even discussing homosexuality with youth. The Russian sport minister pledged to hold athletes attending the 2014 Sochi Olympics accountable if they went out on the streets and attempted to “propagandize.� The move was criticized by John Baird, Canada’s foreign affairs minister, who said the Russian minister’s statements were “an incitement to intolerance which breeds hate.� But Baird’s comments immediately drew fire

from Real Women of Canada. The conservative women’s group said Baird’s comments stepped on the toes of another country’s sovereignty, family and religious values. Defending a country’s action based on its cultural/socio-religious identity is a tired argument that too often has been trotted out for public display in the aftermath of human rights abuses. The rights and freedoms of the individual are a basic human law that predates and supersedes the sovereignty and constitutions of nations. Real Women’s comments were immediately slammed by Canadians across the country, highlighting the cultural shift from intolerance to acceptance that has taken place over recent decades. This national movement toward tolerance is by no means strictly a Canadian phenomenon. Recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered rights are gaining acceptance across North America and Europe, albeit at different rates and to different degrees. In the United States, even the Grand Old Party has grudgingly accepted the inevitability of gay marriage. As Sam Cooke once so eloquently wrote, change is gonna come.

Quebec offers unique European experience for visitors

W

e recently ventured to the Eastern Townships of Quebec to visit my husband’s family. Our weekend trip cemented two ideas in my mind: It’s really frightening using the province’s infrastructure; but maybe the money spent on cultural protectionism over the past five decades has been worthwhile. I mean, there’s just something about Quebec, isn’t there? You really do feel like you’re in another country. It’s not just the sinkholes and crumbling bridges. There is a provincial warmth melded with a European class among the people there that I’ve yet to find in other places in Canada. It’s politically incorrect to say this in some circles, but there is truly a distinct culture in Quebec. The Quebecois don’t just talk differently from the rest of Canada; they also eat differently, greet differently and share their opinions in a unique way. And much of it comes down to the preservation of the family meal. It’s the way they linger over the preparation of food that stands out in my mind. It’s the way wine is central to the occasion.

Unlike the rest of us who are stocking up at the LCBO before a long weekend, most Quebec families I know keep a box of wine in the fridge for informal occasions. But when there is a more formal gathering, one can count on the celebratory pop of the cork of a slightly upscale vintage. Everyone partakes, and even some of the older kids get to have a sip or a small glass. And people are very relaxed about drinking, generally. The wine is as important to them as the food. It isn’t guzzled, but drunk slowly between small bites. I realize I’m romanticizing a bit here, but there is, in fact, some hard evidence to back what I’m saying. Believe it or not, the Quebecois actually shop for food differently from the rest of us.

Believe it or not, the Quebecois actually shop for food differently from the rest of us. This appreciation of food is benefiting their waistlines. Because although – according to a Nielsen survey conducted last year – the Quebecois have a sweeter tooth than the rest of us, they also have some of the lowest rates of obesity. Finally, a study published by the Vanier Institute for the Family a few years ago found that people in Quebec are more likely to sit down multiple times per week for a family dinner than

According to a study commissioned by a national grocers association last year, the Quebecois are much more likely to visit the store daily to purchase precisely what they need to cook a particular meal, for example. They also demand a much broader selection of meat – not just striploin steaks and boneless chicken breast, but also bison, various cuts of lamb and venison. And they buy smaller portions. Not just of meat, but of other things too.

those living elsewhere in Canada. It’s around the table, noted the authors, that parents are best able to connect with children, and that people can debate issues of the day or share their ideas and emotions. From food to thought, there is a true richness in Quebec I haven’t experienced since I lived in Europe for a few years. If that weren’t enough to make me want to spend more time over the border in La Belle Province, the fact that I can purchase wine and beer at the camp store in their provincial park clinches the notion that I should “travel abroad� more often.

New wildlife construction protocol coming next year Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

Lawson Park will have a new splash pad next spring thanks to funding from Rideau-Rockcliffe ward’s cash-in-lieu parkland funds.

City makes a splash at Overbrook park Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Overbrook’s Lawson Park will get a new splash pad next spring. The park is located in Overbrook’s

east end, just south of Donald Street. Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark secured the funding for the park through his ward’s cash-in-lieu of parkland funds. According to Clark, the construction of the splash pad will cost close to $225,000.

The city’s manager of strategic initiatives, parks, recreation and cultural services, Judy Bates, said there are no designs for the splash pad yet, but that construction for the new parkland feature would begin next spring.

News - An old regional policy, advising builders on how to protect wildlife while constructing new buildings, is set to be updated at the beginning of the year. One of the last holdovers from amalgamation, the wildlife construction protocol isn’t in use because it doesn’t meet current regulations, including provincial policies. The protocol will be updated at the beginning of 2014 as one of the first tasks resulting from the city’s new wildlife strategy, which council adopted in July. The old regional protocol outlines when contact with wildlife could be anticipated and advises on appropriate measures to prevent harm to animals and their habitats during construction. Getting a jump on that work was a

priority for two city councillors who told their colleagues during the July 17 council meeting that residents have been calling their offices bemoaning the lack of discussion about wildlife in urban areas. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said the downtown wards may have even more wildlife issues per capita than the city’s rural areas. “We may have fewer coyotes, deer and moose in capital ward ‌ Because it’s squirrels, skunks, raccoons and others, it doesn’t mean it’s not wildlife,â€? Chernushenko said. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said she has also been receiving calls from residents asking for another public meeting to discuss wildlife in the urban area. Lee Ann Snedden, the city’s manager of policy development and urban design, said a meeting to be held about the construction protocol in the new year will be a chance to do just that. Implementing the recently adopted wildlife strategy will focus on education and prevention of human-animal conflicts, Snedden said. Those approaches will be tailored to both rural and urban areas. The strategy reads: “Many conflicts result from carelessness or lack of knowledge of private citizens and public officials regarding the needs and behaviours of wildlife, especially urban wildlife. Property owners may inadvertently create the conditions that attract wildlife and put them at risk.â€? “I believe this strategy will address issues in all those areas,â€? Snedden said. Previously, rural councillors have raised the issue of urbanites who move to a rural area could find themselves in conflict with wildlife if they aren’t aware of how to deal with animals. “The biggest issue is (that) we have people from the urban area moving into the rural area,â€? said West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry. The new wildlife strategy also proposes city council consider hiring a new staffer: a wildlife officer. Snedden agreed that staff could report back to city council in 2014 with a timeline for when the department will request to add that salary to the city’s budget.

PROGRESS AND GREEN SPACE AT LANSDOWNE By Jim Watson

In July we broke ground on the urban park, which will be one of the great features of the new Lansdowne. Until now, the irony of the name Lansdowne Park was that there was very little parkland on the site. We are ďŹ nally replacing the sea of asphalt with useable park space for all residents to enjoy. The new Lansdowne Park will be a complete community with opportunities for shopping,recreation activities,football,soccer, and an urban park. These features will solidify Lansdowne as one of the marquee destinations in Ottawa. The urban park promises to be a signiďŹ cant upgrade over the EXISTING FACILITY THREE TIMES MORE PARK SPACE  ACRES FOUR times more trees, 7.2 kilometres of sidewalks and pathways, and ďŹ ve pieces of public art. The centrepiece of the urban park will be the Great Lawn, a PENTAGON SHAPEDGREENSPACENEXTTOTHE2IDEAU#ANALAND the beautiful Aberdeen Pavilion that will be roughly the size of the lawn on Parliament Hill and a great place to spend time WITHYOURFAMILYANDFRIENDSSEEARTISTSRENDITION  4HE URBAN PARK WILL ALSO SIT NEXT TO THE NEWLY RENOVATED stadium. Sports fans will enjoy signiďŹ cant improvements to the north side stands and brand new south side stands. This work is essential so that Ottawa can play host to our new #&, TEAM THE /TTAWA 2%$",!#+3 FOR THE START OF THE  SEASON#ONSTRUCTIONCREWSHAVEBEENWORKINGTIRELESSLYAND I am pleased that we are on schedule for the stadium to be COMPLETEFORKICKOFFINSUMMER%LEMENTSOFTHEURBAN park will also be complete for the ďŹ rst game, with the new Lansdowne Park in its entirety complete by the summer 2015.

Mother was in a fit state for Aunt Lizzie’s visit

M

other was in a state! Aunt Lizzie was on her way from Regina for her annual summer visit. As usual, she gave little notice. A letter had come just days before she was to arrive. That gave little time for Mother to get the house in spic and span order. Father reminded her she had just torn the whole place upside down for the spring cleaning. Aunt Lizzie would be given the bed Audrey and I slept in, and that meant we would be sent down to the creton couch in the kitchen, where we would have to sleep foot-to-foot since it was so narrow.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Heaven forbid that Aunt Lizzie would sleep on a feather mattress, which was what was on Audrey’s and my bed. The only felt mattress was on Mother and Father’s bed in the downstairs bedroom. That meant the brothers had to haul down the one from upstairs, and lug the other one upstairs, which didn’t please them a bit. After all, it was a Saturday, R0012233909

and they had planned on a day of ďŹ shing in the Bonnechere... not a day spent lugging mattresses up and down the stairs. But with Aunt Lizzie coming, every hand was put to use. That is, all except Father. He wanted no part of what he considered unnecessary work. He escaped to the barns, telling Mother it was time he did something about that broken door in the cow byre. He would appear only for his meals until Mother’s frantic house cleaning was over. My sister and I also had to give up our little shared washstand in our bedroom. It had to be completely emptied, and washed inside and out. What a carry-on, just because Aunt Lizzie was coming from Regina. Getting the food ready was a challenge in itself. Even though Aunt Lizzie was born

and bred on that homestead out in Northcote, you would never know she had ever breathed a breath of air from Renfrew County. There would be no salt pork for breakfast, and certainly pork hocks, and mud pout would never see the light of day all the time Aunt Lizzie’s visit lasted. So as soon as the house was cleaned from top to bottom, Mother set to baking. The old Findlay Oval was fair jumping, as pie after pie, Johnny cake, and bread puddings were made and stacked in the ice box. A loaf of store-bought bread, and a real pound of butter replaced what we ate every day of our lives on the farm. Mother, once again, asked Father to please refrain from cooling his tea in his saucer while his sister was here, but her request, I knew, would fall on deaf ears. As far as Father was concerned, he wasn’t about to change his habits just because Aunt Lizzie was coming with her high-falutin airs. Even though Aunt Lizzie caused complete bedlam in our household before and during her visit, I loved when she came from Regina. She always brought me something special. One time it was a doll, which,

except for its body, was made of china. Even its little arms and legs were China. I used to think she was the smartest thing to ever step off the train in Renfrew Station. She always wore pure white ... a white dress in the latest fashion ... and a big wide red leghorn hat, and white gloves that went all the way up to her elbow. And on the outside of those spanking white gloves was a big red glass ring. Tiny red patent-leather shoes completed the outďŹ t. I would marvel at the wealth of our western cousins. Didn’t her two sons go to university? And didn’t she have a free pass to travel anywhere in the entire country by train? All because Uncle Jack worked for the CPR. And of course, it was Aunt Lizzie who once or twice a year packed a big wood tea box full of clothes no longer suitable for her sons, and send it off to Renfrew on the train. It was the hand-me-down box. Now, once again, Aunt Lizzie was coming to visit. Finally, the house was spotless. We were warned to take our shoes off at the door, not to touch the woodwork which had just been polished, and to make sure our bedrooms were kept

spotlessly clean – a tall order for ďŹ ve rambunctious kids. Aunt Lizzie was to arrive in three days. We couldn’t be more ready. Then the phone rang one morning, just after our breakfast. It was the stationmaster in Renfrew. There was a telegram from the west. Mother asked him to read it ... no use going all the way into town for bad news, or good news, whatever the case may be. It was from Aunt Lizzie, and she was so sorry, but her trip had to be cancelled because Uncle Jack was getting an unexpected award from the CPR, and it was on the very weekend she planned on leaving. They had been given a trip to Calgary. Her trip would have to wait until the next summer. Mother asked the stationmaster to read it again. After she hung up the phone, she let out the biggest sigh which I thought could be heard in Douglas. For supper that night Mother hauled out a pie from the ice box, we all had store-bought bread with real butter, we ďŹ ve kids sat at the table with our shoes on, and there sat Father with his tea in his saucer, cooling it off until it was ďŹ t to drink.

able during the day, which will focus on content relevant to people over the age of 55, regardless of talent or experience. There will also be classes focused on improv, monologue and audition technique, communications, acting for cameras, and playwriting. Children’s classes will start at age five, and a teen Shakespeare ensemble and an audition “boot camp” will be offered to senior high school students.

All courses require registration and vary in pricing. More information about the courses is available online at actingcompany.ca. In addition to rolling out the educational programming from Mondays to Thursdays, Ralph said the building will be open Friday to Sunday, when the space will be available for performances or events. The company has already attracted partners such as Ottawa School of Speech and Drama. The school’s executive director, Amanda Lewis, has founded a new group called the Ottawa Children’s Theatre and will offer classes for children and youth there. Theatre educators Kristina Watt, award-winning playwright Laurie Fyffe, local Glebe resident Mary Ellis, and Gemini winner Robert Bachstael have also joined the company. Some classes have already begun, with the full programming starting in September. Visit actingcompany.ca for more information.

Over 2,000 young people from 81 countries converged on Parliament Hill on the morning of July 8 for the official opening of the 14th annual World Scout Moot. The Rovers Scouts, aged 18 to 26, were welcomed by Governor General David Johnston and John Neysmith, member of the World Scout Committee, along with Alice Jerone, Grand Chief of the Algonquin Tribal Council. The Scouts will perform outdoor activities at a base camp set up at Awacamenj Mino park in the wilderness north or the National Capital Region before visiting one of three cities – Montreal, Quebec City, and Toronto – for the ‘urban experience’ part of the week.

The company was formed by Ralph and John Muggleton. When it comes to teaching, both are very experienced. Ralph works at the Gladstone Theatre and is an acting coach and teacher who taught at York University, the University of Ottawa, the Ottawa Theatre School and Algonquin College. Muggleton, a recipient of the Audrey Ashley award for his dedication to the Ottawa theatre community, is an actor, director and teacher. Ralph said the company’s goal is more than just teaching classes. The group is looking to create a downtown arts hub. “Our doors are always open; we will always have the coffee on,” he said. And the space Ralph and Muggleton have acquired for the company is perfect. It is the former original stage of the Glebe’s old Avalon Theatre – at 738 Bank St. – complete with the old stairs, rafters and brick walls. “To look at the building from the outside, you’d never know there was this incredible space hiding under all that plaster,” Ralph said “But when we went up the stairs we were stunned to find ourselves on the original stage. It has 30-foot-high ceilings, hardwood floors, brick walls and even a balcony.” The space can fit about 60 people, so Ralph said they plan to also rent out the room

to other organizations for plays and events. Classes will be a mix. There is a seniors-only class avail-

Mentalist to play mind games with wider audience Nepean native Jaymes White will make his debut on the small screen in September. Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - It’s all about misdirection. Nepean native Jaymes White has been fascinated with magic since he was six. He started doing street performances at 12 and moved onto stage shows in his late teens and early 20s. The next step is a six-part television miniseries set to debut on Rogers channel 22 on Sept. 13. The show is patterned after White’s own performance, called Paradox, which focuses mostly on mind reading and hypnotism, but each episode has a theme. White said passersby were often the fodder to showcase his talents. “We had some actors, but mostly it was people we ran into,” he said. White, who has a degree in psychology and criminology, will be the first to tell you that what he does isn’t magic, but the mental equivalent of sleight of hand. “There’s a lot of statistical research and learning about demographics,” White said. “It works best on a certain kind of person. You have to be able to read them in the first seven seconds to get

it right.” White said the TV series; to be entitled Mind Games, was shot all over Ottawa, in spots like the canal, the Bytown Museum, Sparks Street and Major’s Hill Park. “The themes were kind of determined by the location,” he said. “We did one on haunted spots. People seem to be more open to suggestion in areas they believe are haunted. The canal, for example, has a certain kind of energy to it.” Shooting for the series started the first week of July and wrapped up about a month later, White said. He added it was a lot more work than he expected. “A lot went into it,” he said. “For example, we’d do a trick and then it wouldn’t look right, so we’d have to reshoot part and piece it back together.” Despite his foray onto the small screen, White said he’s much happier on stage interacting with his audience.The next step in his career as a mentalist will be a tour across the country. “If I can bank on selling out or having 500-person crowds no matter where I perform in the country, then

VANESSA PERAL/SUBMITTED

Ottawa native Jaymes White will take his Mind Games to a television near you this fall. I will have made it,” he said, adding he doesn’t have any desire to head to Las Vegas like some other magicians have done.

Planning a show for the stage takes months of rehearsal and preparation. The last show, Paradox was at the Arts Court Theatre in March. White said he

plans to host another show in the fall. For more information on his upcoming events, visit jaymeswhite. com.

Hockey mom feels the love at tribute event Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – John and Pauline Kuiack have been spending what precious time they have left together going on picnics, taking their three kids to the museum and spending a mini honeymoon at Chateau Montebello. And this July, they spent one last afternoon with their second family: dozens of hockey players and their families who have been touched by the Manotick couple over the past 15 years as they have coached and managed teams throughout the Osgoode Rideau Minor Hockey Association. The players came out to celebrate and support Pauline, who is dying of cancer. “The fundraiser was absolutely phenomenal,” said John. The event, a friendly hockey game at the Bell Sensplex on July 27, pitted some of the Kuiacks’ old recruits against other friends and family. Held in the internationalsized arena complete with commentary, music and a red carpet ceremonial puck drop, the elite-level event was fitting for the couple who are virtual

celebrities in the local hockey community. It was organized by Tyler Cassidy, a 19-year-old Manotick resident, who grew up playing hockey under the tutelage of the Kuiacks. Being close to the family since he was a pre-schooler – their youngest son, Christopher, is 19 as well - Cassidy knew the Kuiacks have been struggling to make ends meet while Pauline lives out her final months. John has stopped working to be with her, and Pauline had to give up her home day care business only a few weeks after her diagnosis in January. Cassidy said giving back to the Kuiacks is the least he could do after their years of dedication to Manotick’s sport community. “They have always put others ahead of themselves,” he said. “Every hockey event, every baseball event, any ringette event, they’ve been there.” Pauline was diagnosed on Jan. 13. While it was classified a cancer of the gastro-intestinal tract, doctors never discovered the cancer’s origin. Over the past six months, the cancer has spread

Cassidy raised about $4,000 to help the family pay bills while she lives out the rest of her life. to her lymph nodes, abdominal lining, ovaries and stomach. In June Pauline and her husband decided to stop her chemotherapy treatments in order to enjoy the limited time she had left. Doctors say she will likely die before Christmas. John said Cassidy’s event was especially touching be-

cause, as coaches, their goal was to teach the players about respect and compassion on and off the ice. “When you’re coaching and managing teams, you always hope you have some kind of impact on the boys outside of hockey,” he said. “What Tyler did on the

PET OF THE WEEK

weekend, it was so moving. It was about hockey, but he had taken it past hockey and looked at what’s happening in our own lives.” GAME TO REMEMBER

Beginning at 3 p.m., Cassidy led the event with a trib-

ute to Manotick teen Tyler Campbell, who died of a fentanyl overdose last August, and spoke about the Kuiacks’ longstanding dedication to the community. Pauline, with the help of one of her sons, walked through a tunnel of raised hockey sticks to drop the puck for a ceremonial face-off before the Canadian Spartans took on Paula’s Smurfs. “That was a tear-jerker,” Cassidy said. “That was the most emotional time.” The Canadian Spartans was a team led by the Kuiacks beginning in 2007, which fundraised for two years to participate in a two-week European hockey tour in 2009. “Once I heard about Pauline’s cancer getting worse I thought we should get a Spartan reunion,” said Cassidy, who was on the team. Paula’s Smurfs won the game 6 to 3, but the biggest winner was the Kuiack family which took home about $4,000 to help with bills. Donations are still being accepted at the family’s fundraising page at mylifeline.org/paulinekuiack.

CHRISSY

LADY GAGA

ID#A068449

ID#A157325

Meet Chrissy. She’s a spayed female, brown Abyssinian and tabby domestic shorthair cat who’s looking for her forever home. She’s about two-years-old and was brought to the shelter as a stray on March 22. Chrissy is a classy, exotic-looking kitty who loves her peace and quiet. That means

she’d be happiest in a home with older teens or adults. She’d love to just curl up in a sunny patch on your living room floor. This kitty has a true Abyssinian personality, which means Chrissy is a bit of a diva. But can you blame her? She’s beautiful and she knows it.

Meet Lady Gaga, a two-year-old, spayed female, calico domestic longhair cat who was surrendered by her owner on June 18 and is ready to be adopted! She came to the shelter with her best friend Sunday (A102737), and would much prefer being accompanied by her when going to her new forever home. Lady Gaga has been known to use her scratching post daily, and would be okay with living with a gentle, and non-intrusive dog. She needs a quiet home with owners who will give her time to show her true self. She likes to play shy but with a few treats and time, she will surely blossom! Visit the OHS website at www. otVisit the OHS website at www. ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption. Stop by the Adoption Centre, weekdays 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Help a homeless pet on International Homeless Animals’ Day

Well you might ask, how does a white cat come to be called Blackie. His original name was Bowie, as in David Bowie who has two different coloured eyes. However, I was hoping for a female kitten when I got him and so, somewhat irrationally, I renamed him, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, for the hard-rocking girl band. Since Blackie knows who he is and as such, refuses to come to Joan, I shortened his name to the only other possibility, Blackie. He is everyone’s little darling here in Centretown. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

amount of time it takes to care for an animal. Right now, the OHS has approximately 105 cats, 20 dogs, and 20 small animals available for adoption, with 227 animals in foster care. With about seven animals entering our care daily, you can expect to see those numbers increase. So what can you do to help Ottawa’s homeless animals on Aug. 17? Spay or neuter your animals: If your pet has a litter, even if you find homes for most of the puppies or kittens, in one year, all those puppies or kittens could have litters of their own. Millions of dollars are spent annually to care for lost, abandoned and unwanted pets. Contact your local vet or the City of Ottawa Spay/Neuter Clinic to discuss the best age at which to spay your pet. Adopt from the Ottawa Humane Society:

Not only are you giving an animal a second chance at the life they deserve, you are getting an animal that is spayed or neutered, has an implanted microchip, has been vet checked, and comes with six weeks of free pet health insurance – all for a low price! Donate or volunteer: Not ready to add a pet to your family but love animals? Hold your own event for the animals, become a PAW monthly donor, or check out the multiple volunteer opportunities at the OHS! Find out how you can help by visiting our website at www.ottawahumane.ca. Looking for the purrfect pal? Visit the OHS Adoption Centre, or one of our Pet Adoption Locations during the month of August, and bring home an adult cat for $125!

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

Though many pets are celebrated as family members, there are those that aren’t so lucky. Every day, the Ottawa Humane Society becomes a safe haven for animals that are lost, abandoned, neglected, or abused. During the summer months, our shelter fills up with animals and we are desperate to find them the loving homes they deserve. Why are there so many homeless pets? The answer isn’t simple. There are many reasons why people are surrendering their companion animals to the OHS, such as allergies, aggressive behaviour, a move, or they simply do not have the time. Pets are a responsibility that consume both your time and money. Costs such as food, toys, treats and, most importantly, veterinarian care add up quick and many people don’t take into consideration the
