city at legal risk: Wilkinson Council votes to keep gambling at raceway with current slots, 21 tables Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Mayor Jim Watson downplayed the possibility the province could say “no dice” after city council voted to require gambling to stay at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. The 16-7 vote on Aug. 28 means the city council wants the rural raceway to be the only location for gambling facilities in Ottawa. The size of the facility would be limited to the 1,250 slots machines that are already at the raceway and the 21 gaming tables council previously approved as a twoyear pilot project. The mayor said he couldn’t predict how the province and Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation would react to the city’s statement that it will only accept gambling at the raceway. Watson pointed out that Kingston excluded its historic

downtown core from having a casino located there and Hamilton said it would only accept a casino at its racetrack at Flamboro Downs. “I would be very surprised if all of a sudden the province or OLG came back and said, ‘I’m sorry, we’re not going to follow through on what you asked for,’” Watson said. “We just received the letter on Monday that in essence, confirmed the province’s position that we have one zone, but also that we have the right to make a decision as to where in that zone the gaming facility can be.” Although the OLG had previously expressed that the intent of its gambling modernization plan was to bring gaming to where people live – urban centres – Watson said that was under a different leadership.

Garbage, recycling to get sorted out on Elgin Street Hodge-podge bins a thing of the past: McRae Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Darth Vader has extended his stay at the Canadian Space museum this fall. – Page 12

News - The garbage disposal options for those out for a bite to eat or a stroll along Elgin Street have just become a little more organized after the city

began a pilot project featuring new garbage containers. The bins allow waste to be sorted in three categories: garbage, recycling or paper. The pilot project will see 26 bins installed along the 14block section of Elgin from

Laurier Avenue to Catherine Street. Maria McRae, councillor for River Ward and chairwoman of the environment committee, Mayor Jim Watson and Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes tried out the new bins on Aug. 27 in front of city hall. “Recycling is a key component to the city’s waste diver-

sion program,” McRae said. “These new bins will make it easy.” She referred to the current situation on Elgin as a “hodgepodge” and the new receptacles will be a huge improvement. The large metal containers are made of three interior sorting bins, inside of which will

be clear plastic bags so the city’s public works department will be able to audit the trash - all too ensure the project is working. The one-year pilot project will see the new bins placed along the street during the coming weeks. See ORGANIC, page 19 R0012161504

New charity home full of heart News - The walls are up, the paint is almost dry and 18 Heartwood House charities are packing their bags â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all ready for the ďŹ nal move to Overbrook this fall. Partnering with the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ottawa, Heartwood House announced the purchase of its new 2,415-square meter home, located on McArthur Avenue in Overbrook late last year. Since then, the charity co-op has been working at raising money and renovating the former Giant Tiger store and warehouse to house the 18 charitable organizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still need help with donations. Small charities fall under the radar for donations from the community, and really, we never needed to be on the radar before, we all just quietly did our work,â&#x20AC;? Moloughney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But now, we have had to ďŹ nd any which way to fundraise for these renovations. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have big backers. We are doing it from the toonies up.â&#x20AC;? The renovations have been an enormous undertaking for the group. It needed to initially raise $400,000, which since construction began has tripled due to ďŹ re codes and getting the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electrical system updated. Moloughney and lead fundraiser for the organization Isobel Bisby showed off the new space at the end of August, when the ďŹ nal touches were being put in place for the ďŹ rst of a three-phase renovation to the building. The group has split the renovations into phases in order to complete everything in a timely and less-expensive fashion. Phase 1, which includes the Unitarian churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s congregation space, reception and some of the charities is all but complete. The church will host its ďŹ rst Sunday service at the new location on Sept. 8 at 10:30 a.m. The space is a large room, which can be divided into two

The organization needs to raise $85,000 to have the elevator installed. smaller ones. Heartwood and the church have agreed that when the congregation is not using the space it will be available for the charities to rent out for functions. Donations have also included more than just dollars and cents, but actual equipment. The community kitchen, which both Heartwood and the church will share, has a slightly used industrial stove donated by the Catholic Church and the renovations for the kitchen were raised by Project Clear Skies. Although the ďŹ rst portion of the renovations is almost complete, Bisby said more money is still needed to complete the second and third phases of renovations in time to

move in at the end of October. One of those big ticket items is installing the elevator, at a cost of $85, 000. Moloughney said they hope to raise the remaining money before they need to start that portion of construction. So far, Bisby has launched a penny drive, purchase a â&#x20AC;&#x153;onesquare-footâ&#x20AC;? of Heartwood House and smaller-scale buffet suppers at Golden India on McArthur and garden parties hosted by some of the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters.

Guests are encouraged to bring an item for the silent auction worth $20. Items already donated include handmade quilts, a three-day cottage weekend, Otesha bike maintenance 101 sessions and a hand knit sweater. The event will have live music, wine and antipasti. Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased at Heartwood or Books on Beechwood in New Edinburgh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been knocking on all the doors we can think of to donate,â&#x20AC;? Bisby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope we can inspire people to donate to this cause.â&#x20AC;? Options for people to contribute also include room naming opportunities, become a friend of Heartwood House, or attend one of the monthly fundraiser events. Heartwood House found its new home a year after the organization found out the building it was renting from the Congregation Beth Shalom at 151 Chapel St. had been sold to Claridge Homes. The organization consulted with the 18 charities who share the space about a new location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to stay in the community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that was important,â&#x20AC;? Moloughney said. The executive director said this new space is being made to the best of each individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our mission is to keep this space affordable for small charities and we are still managing that here,â&#x20AC;? Moloughney said. Donations or volunteering opportunities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially willing painters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can get in touch with Moloughney at moe@heartwoodhouse.ca or 613 241 5937, or by visiting heartwoodhouse. ca.

Domicile to develop Sisters’ property Plans will respect community design plan, bring small retailers to Old Ottawa East Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Local developer Domicile has purchased the Sisters’ property on Main Street and plans to construct a building that brings to life the Old Ottawa East community design plan’s vision. The plans include two buildings with ground-floor retail and around 140 condo units on the five upper floors that will mimic the size and shape of the existing convent at the Sisters of the Sacred Heart property. The 3.5-acre site is located off Main Street between Oblate Avenue and Springhurst Avenue. “We’re really trying to respect the community that’s already there,” Said David Renfroe, Domicile’s director of business development and planning. Domicile wants to ensure the project has the least amount of impact on neighbours who live on Springhurst, Renfroe said. “We understand the importance of this project for the overall vision of the Main Street redevelopment.”

Renfroe said the architecture will have a “French flair” with a traditional masonry façade. The units will have large windows and balconies, Renfroe said. In addition to a central park separating the two buildings, Domicile is proposing a rooftop terrace. Domicile will present its draft plans to the neighbourhood at a community association meeting on Oct. 8 at 7:15 p.m. at the Old Town Hall, located at Main Street and Hawthorne Avenue. Old Ottawa East Community Association president John Dance had not yet seen the plans, but the proposal sounds “excellent,” he said. Community members will watch the development with great interest because of its potential to contribute to revitalizing the Main Street commercial district, Dance said. “We are very much in need of better commercial and more residents,” Dance said. “This seems to be exactly that.” There will be about 1,485 square metres of retail space broken down into nine or 10 small shops that will

This preliminary conceptual sketch shows an idea of what developer Domicile is hoping to develop at 141 Main St. hopefully attract local business owners, Renfroe said. “We’re hoping for local retail and small, local businesses,” he said. Domicile is fine working within the 20-metre height limit set out in the community design plan and secondary plan for the area, but Renfroe said he’s going to ask the city and the community whether they might be willing to add another half a foot onto the height so the retail floor can

have slightly higher ceilings, making it more attractive for businesses to locate there. “We don’t want it to be dark and claustrophobic,” Renfroe said. If there’s no appetite for that, the zoning and CDP will be respected, Renfroe said. Dance said he personally thinks that request is reasonable, but it’s not something the community association has discussed yet.

“It’s not the end of the world,” he said, noting Domicile was flexible in extending the width of Main Street in front of the property in order to accommodate the “complete street” vision with bicycle lanes and on-street parking. Domicile is also looking at providing about 20 more parking spaces than required for the retail portion of the development. That would include a handful of spaces along each street frontage – on Main, Oblate and Hawthorne – that mimic street parking but are located on the property. There would be 150 underground parking spaces for residents. So far, the initial design process has been the smoothest he’s ever seen, Renfroe said. If that continues, Domicile expects to begin pre-selling units in February of 2014 and constructing the first building next June. As for any possible future interest in the rest of the Oblate lands adjacent to the Sisters of the Sacred Heart property, Renfroe said Domicile has had an interest in the properties since 2002 and tried to buy the Oblates land in 2007. “Domicile has an interest to be a bigger player in the Old Ottawa East community,” he said, adding the developer is happy with what’s been happening in the community regarding the community design plan and the reconstruction of Main Street as a “complete street” with cycling tracks. “We like the direction this area is going in,” Renfroe said.

Carp Road Widening Environmental Assessment Study Highway 417 to Hazeldean Road Open House #1 Wednesday, September 18, 2013 Goulbourn Recreation Complex (Arena B Lobby) 1500 Shea Road, Stittsville Transit Access: Route # 96 6:30 to 9 p.m.

Monday, September 16, 2013 Hall A, Kanata Recreation Complex 100 Walter Baker Place 6:30 to 9 p.m., presentation at 7 p.m. The City of Ottawa initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study in January 2013 for the Kanata South community for the corridor encompassing Hope Side Road, Old Richmond Road and West Hunt Club Road to Highway 416. This Study is being carried out in accordance with the requirements for a Schedule ‘C’ project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, as revised in 2007 and 2011.

The purpose of this second and final Open House is to: s Present the alternative road widening designs (3 lanes with reversible lane and 4 lanes with median) and intersection alternatives (signals and roundabouts) s Present the evaluation of the alternative designs s Present the technically preferred design.

The City of Ottawa has initiated the Carp Road Widening Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to determine the most appropriate means to accommodate and manage increasing transportation requirements in the northwest Stittsville area, specifically along Carp Road from HWY 417 to Hazeldean Road as illustrated in the key map.

Consultation There will be on-going public consultation activities during the course of the study. This first Open House will provide an overview of study progress to date, including the evaluation of alternative corridor alignments and an overview of design alternatives which will be considered in next phase of the study. Your participation in Open House meetings is an important component of the study where you can discuss the project with the study team and provide feedback.

Upon completion of this study, an Environmental Study Report will be available for public review and comment. A notice of study completion will be published at that time.

The EA study is being undertaken in accordance with Ontario’s EA Act, fulfilling requirements as a Municipal Class EA process for a Schedule ‘C’ project. The EA process will involve developing, assessing and evaluating alternatives, resulting in a Recommended Plan which will be presented to City Council for approval.

Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation, please call or e-mail the Project Lead below before the event.

Information on the Carp Road Widening EA Study is available on the City’s project web site at: ottawa.ca/carproad

For further information on this project, or to be added to our mailing list, please visit the web site at ottawa.ca/kanatasouthstudy or contact:

Interested persons can provide comments throughout the EA process. Any comments received will be collected under the Environmental Assessment Act and, with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record.

Getting Safely Back into Routine:

School Lunches Getting back into the school routine can be challenging, especially when the relaxed meal schedules are gone and the task of making lunches returns once again. Health Canada estimates that 11 to 13 million Canadians suffer from foodborne illness each year, and unfortunately children are in a higher risk category to experience more serious symptoms. Foodborne illness occurs when harmful bacteria, viruses or parasites make their way into the body through food or beverages and cause illness or disease. To avoid unwanted “ingredients” making their way into your child’s lunch bag, here are some key reminders to parents when packing lunches.

Keep Hot Foods Hot

Keep Cold Foods Cold • Keep cold foods cold at 4°C or below -Use a refrigerator if possible or use a frozen ice pack, frozen water bottle or juice box and place beside the perishable foods - Use an insulated lunch bag and store it away from sun light or other heat sources. Refrigerate or freeze lunch bags the night before use.

We deserved a real debate

O

ttawa voters should take note of a particular date on the calendar that passed recently. They should tuck the date away along with the memory of what happened that day, saving it for October next year when they are called upon to elect the next city council. The date is Aug. 28, the day council voted to cast aside what is typically accepted as normal behaviour for municipal bodies in Ontario - open competition, transparent process, regard for rules - and picked the Rideau Carleton Raceway as the only acceptable location for expanded gaming facilities in Ottawa. Voters should remember this date because there are a significant number of councillors who despite expressing legitimate reservations about the motion went ahead and voted for it anyway. Voters should also recall this vote is in contradiction to one held in October 2012, when the same council voted in favour of an open process for determining the site. During the course of the casino debate at city hall, councillors consistently raised concerns about public health issues, a convoluted process and the varying effects of seeing a new gaming facility placed at the raceway or at some other location. These are all valid concerns. If members of council have concerns, they

should look to address them before approving something as significant to the city as a new casino. Instead, we see Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess point to many of those issues only to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve consistently voted yes and held my nose doing it.â&#x20AC;? We also see Bay Coun. Mark Taylor saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;this has been an unclear and unclean process.â&#x20AC;? His residents, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;want a more open process,â&#x20AC;? but â&#x20AC;&#x153;we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten there yet.â&#x20AC;? He voted in favour of the motion. And for College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;not the best decision, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the least worst.â&#x20AC;? It has become the habit of this council to approve everything that comes before it, whether there are flaws or not. It is the job of councillors to scrutinize and challenge things. If something smells a little off, why not amend it? Better to reject a motion that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit right than to pass it despite any reservations. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why there are councillors rather than just a mayor who runs the city by fiat. Following the bitter divisions that marked many debates during the last council term under mayor Larry Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, the incoming council sought to do business differently. But this should never have led councillors to become afraid to challenging things they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel are right. The residents of Ottawa deserve better from their elected leaders.

Initial thoughts on saving words from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;initialismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; scourge

T

here are more important causes, to be sure, but would anybody be interested in trying to save the English language from the curse of initialism? I thought of this the other day when dealing with a respected Ottawa company with a well-known name and being told to make the cheque out to some initials. Oh no, I thought. Another one. It joins KFC, RBC, KLM, TLC, IBM, BP, HBC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; outfits that prefer to be known by their initials. In some cases, you can understand it. The initials KLM refer to the words for Dutch national airlines in Dutch. KLM is less likely to confuse people. In the case of KFC, you will recall that â&#x20AC;&#x153;friedâ&#x20AC;? became a dirty word some time ago but Kentucky Fried Chicken had too much invested in its brand to change it to something more nutritionally correct. So KFC it became. Likewise, the banks woke up one day and realized that a lot of people hated banks. This is not a good thing to ponder if you happen to be a bank and have the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;bankâ&#x20AC;? in your name. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we have BMO instead of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bank of Montreal,â&#x20AC;? RBC instead of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Royal Bank of Canada.â&#x20AC;?

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town British Petroleum might have become BP because Americans werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used to using the word petroleum. Or it might be because oil companies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to be thought of as oil companies. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any idea why the Hudsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Company, an organization with a deep historical association with Canada, would want to become HBC. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong with any of those words? It may just be that someone sold them on the idea that initials are more modern. TLC is what The Learning Channel calls itself. This is better than what most people call it, namely, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the station that only has programs about wedding dresses.â&#x20AC;? At one time, TLC stood for â&#x20AC;&#x153;tender, loving care,â&#x20AC;? so maybe the choice of initials is deliberate.

Ottawa East News EMC - Thursday, September 5, 2013

There are times when sticking with words would help, such as in the case of WWF, which means World Wildlife Federation, but used to also mean World Wrestling Federation. You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to call the wrong one by mistake if you had some seals you wanted saved. Many of these companies, like IBM, have been around for decades and their initials are well-known. There is no quarrel with them. But it does seem odd that others are so anxious to abandon perfectly good words. There is a sports talk show on TV called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pardon the Interruption.â&#x20AC;? The words perfectly describe the show, in which two commentators continually interrupt each other. But now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known as PTI. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another one called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Off the Record,â&#x20AC;? that is more commonly called OTR. Why? Why go to all the trouble of trying to name a show, a network, a bank, and then abandon it to sink in a sea of alphabet soup? Definitely Not the Opera was a clever title for a Saturday afternoon CBC radio show. DNTO is not a clever title. Sometimes substituting initials for words doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even save syllables. There is a legendary ice cream joint in Winnipeg called the Bridge Drive-In. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right beside a bridge, so

the name is evocative. But the initials, BDI, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. There has to be a reasonable explanation. One answer you hear is that the abbreviated name is easier to use as an Internet address, and indeed you will see this if you look up some companies on the web. As if it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already ruining our lives in other ways, the Internet now has yet another thing to answer for. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been taught how important words are, how anxious our parents were to hear us speak them. And now this. Guys: use your words.

S

ummer is officially over for most of us. All I’m hearing from people around me is what a lousy season we’ve had for weather. It makes me wonder if I’ve been living on another planet; or maybe I’ve finally achieved my goal of converting to an optimist; or maybe it’s just that having spent a few years living in Britain, there’s hardly a Canadian summer around that could disappoint me. Sure, we started out pretty wet. I mean, what was June besides a big puddle? One hundred and fifty millimetres of rainfall, to be precise. But from the moment school was out the weather, in my mind, has been glorious. Of course, it all depends on your expectations. According to one recent study on happiness, 13.9 C is the optimum temperature to keep us feeling good. Somehow, however, I think those complaining about the weather were hoping for a greater number of sweltering days, rather than cool ones. One particularly cynical individual said, “If you had a pool in your backyard, you’d know what a crappy summer

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse Of those 20 nights, only once did I have to dive into the trunk of my SUV with three kids in tow because of a thunderstorm directly overhead. (That wasn’t so nice). And one or two of the 20 mornings that followed did I have to put my rubber boots on because of a smattering of rain that fell in the early morning. A lot of people are merely nostalgic for the summer of 2012, which apparently set a new milestone for Canadian summers. I don’t remember much of 2012, except for the record-breaking temperatures in July, when I happened to be 42 weeks pregnant. The rest is pretty much a blur. It turns out, however, it was a hot one – 11 weeks of maximum temperatures over 30 C last year. But for anyone stuck in the city – as I was with a

it’s been.” But really, how warm does it have to be to jump off your back deck into a heated pool? I, on the other hand, like to escape the city whenever the mercury spikes above 25 C. Thanks to my Gatineau Park pass, I’ve spent more than two dozen days aside local lakes. Doesn’t anyone remember the hot, sticky weather that struck in late June? It was, in fact, a heat wave that – except for the blip, which was Canada Day – lasted well into the third week of July. I know this because I spent 20 nights in a tent this summer. That’s about a third of July and August, for those of you who aren’t very good at doing quick sums in your head. Most of those nights were balmy. Some saw me kicking off my sleeping bag.

newborn – it was too hot and humid. Nope, the summer of 2013 was much more nicely balanced, in my opinion – hot days, cool nights, some cooling off periods between three, separate heat waves. This is my kind of summer. And for anyone who’s still doubting my judgment of the weather, you may be surprised to know that – despite the soggy month of June – the hours of sunshine over the past three months have matched or exceeded that of 2012. We’ve also had seven weeks with maximum temperatures over 30 degrees this year, which I’d say is pretty decent. People always complain about the weather – it’s too hot, it’s too cold, it’s too wet, it’s too dry – but at the end of the day, the summer is what you make of it. For me, summer 2012 will go down in the family memoirs as good one – after all, I spent more than 30 days on the beach this year, only one of them shivering in a fleece sweater. If that’s not the mark of a good summer, I don’t know what is.

Market foot patrol makes difference Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Police report the Lowertown foot patrol continues to be a positive reinforcement for the community. “Two months of constant police presence around the problem areas has resulted in a noticeable change, echoed by residents, business owner and tourist alike,” said Insp Chris Rheaume. Police launched the three-

month project as part of its ongoing efforts to respond to community identified concerns. The foot patrol hit the pavement in July, and in one month officers had responded to 227 calls for service and laid 724 charges, which included bylaw infractions, trespassing, aggressive panhandling and public intoxication. Fortythree criminal charges including drug possession, indecent acts, breaching probation and possession of stolen property

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

were also laid. The increased number of foot patrol officers in the market has been working closely with bylaw enforcement and OC Transpo constables. Michael Balfour, a representative from the Fairmont Château Laurier, said that since this project was implemented, he has seen a reduction in negative experiences reported by guests, colleagues and partners within the community.

The Gee-Gees field is ready and waiting for its team to come home on Sept. 7. The game will also be the University of Ottawa’s official opening of the new field at 200 Lees Ave.

Gee-Gees are back on campus Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Sports - The Gee-Gees are heading back their home turf for the football team’s home opener. After last year’s relocation to a field 40 minutes outside of Ottawa -- Beckwith field in Carleton Place -- the University of Ottawa’s football team will return to a new field on Lees Avenue for a game against the University of Toronto on Sept. 7 at 1 p.m. The team was moved out of Lansdowne Park when the reconstruction of Frank Clair Stadium began last year. Then last August the city and the university formed a partnership to build the $8 million facility located at 200 Lees Ave. The project aimed to increase the number of sports and recreation programs available for students and residents living in wider community, with 10,000 hours each year available to rent. According to the university, this new sports facility will be the first time in more than 120 years the football team will play games on the university campus.

Construction was to have been completed last November, but a series of delays has meant the project took a year to finish. The home opener will feature extra festivities this year as the university plans to also officially open the field with an event to welcome local dignitaries and residents to the new field. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he is excited for the team to be back, and is looking forward to the first home game. “I plan to be at the game, I still have to buy tickets, but I am a big football fan,” he said. Fleury added that he hopes area residents also come out to the game. “It’s an opportunity for residents to enjoy good football. I think as residents it’s a great chance to see local sports and it’s about supporting local sports,” he said. Along with a home opener, Fleury said, comes many students and fans through the Sandy Hill community and because of that, his staff has been working closely with the university to ensure things like foot traffic and garbage along

the Rideau River pathway and noise in the neighbourhood do not get out of hand. He said he would like to see garbage cans along the pathway to limit the amount of cleanup would need to happen after the game. Action Sandy Hill, the area’s community association has also been proactively informing its residents about the upcoming event, including posting information on its website, ash-acs. ca. Before the game, barbecue and beer garden will take place in the rear courtyard behind the stadium, which will open at 11 a.m. and will serve food and alcohol until the fourth quarter. There will be no public parking at 200 Lees Ave. on game days. Three parking lots will be made available on the university’s campus, with a complimentary shuttle running from Minto Sports Complex to the stadium. The Gee-Gees will take on local rivals the Carleton Ravens on Oct. 5. Fleury said his office is working at ensuring if any improvements can be made for how the university hosts home games will be fixed by this game.

Star Wars exhibit gets extension Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - If there are any fans out there who have yet to check out a unique exhibition from a galaxy far, far away, there is still time before Star Wars Identities lifts off for good. The exhibition was scheduled to close on Sept. 2, but the Canada Aviation and Space Museum has extended it until Oct. 14, due to popular demand. “It is the first time that CASM has hosted such a blockbuster exhibition, and it has proven to be a successful experience,” said Fernand Proulx, acting president of the museum. “Faced with strong demand from a public that is clearly won over by the Star Wars universe and its characters’ strong identities, we have decided to extend the exhibition’s stay in Ottawa until Oct. 14.” The museum showcase features characters from the famous film series, including Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Yoda as well as Anakin Skywalker’s full-sized podracer, offering both old and new fans of the films the chance to explore what forces shape the person or species you become. Created by Montreal’s X3 Productions in collaboration with Lucasfilm

Michaela Hawdur, Chelsea Frake and Rachael Mombourquette hang out with a couple of characters at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum on March 20. The museum launched its summer exhibition, Star Wars Identities, which will open on May 10. Ltd., the exhibition first appeared at the Montreal Science Centre in the spring of 2012. It has since travelled to western Canada, and opened in the capital this past May. X3 Productions collaborated with the Montréal Science Centre’s team

tities, and, at the same time, we get a deeper understanding of our own ...It’s a character-driven adventure into identity.” Exploring the complex notion of identity in both the real world and in the films, X3 Productions sought to shed light on each of the components of identity. The exhibition divides the study of the characters from the movies identity into three major themes: the origins of the characters, the influences that shape them, and the choices they make during their life. It’s by looking at these characters’ identity that patrons will have the chance to learn about the components which make up their own human identities, such as species, genes, parents, and culture. There are many fun aspects to the new exhibit including a making-of featurettes which explore the stories behind the development of many iconic Star Wars characters and explain how they became who they are, and how different creative choices could have made them different characters altogether. There are also interactive identity quests, scientific content and the chance to follow Luke and Anakin Skywalker through their journey. Online ticket sales for the exhibition are available; as well visitors can begin their identity adventure online at starwarsidentities.com. Adult tickets are $23 and children are $13.25.

There are several outward signs of this learning disability, but they have nothing to do with intellectual disability or sensory disorders. Before diagnosing dyscalculia, health professionals eliminate other hypotheses, such as problems with vision, hearing, or the consequences of brain trauma, for example. A neuropsychological examination is then conducted in order to assess intellectual quotient, concentration, memory and lan-

guage. These procedures may seem to take a long time, but they are vital in order to avoid making a premature diagnosis, which could point doctors in the wrong direction. Children diagnosed with dyscalculia are treated by a speech therapist. The length of the treatment varies, as each case is unique, but excellent results are entirely possible. If you’re concerned that your child may suffer from a math disability, talk about it with a professional who will be able to direct you towards appropriate assessments and treatments.

Oktoberfest gets bigger, better in Barrhaven Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

R0012239100

News - Onkel Otto is looking for you. Along with the famed mascot, Dwight Brown, founder of the Ottawa Oktoberfest, said this year’s celebration at Clarke Fields is going to be the biggest yet. Twenty performers will serenade the festival goers on four different stages during the threeday event that runs from Sept. 27 to 29. With a variety of local acts set to hit the stage, from Manotick’s indie rocker group Hollerado, to homegrown Barrhaven native Amanda Rheaume, there promises to be plenty to listen to. Brown said there’s also going to be a lot of for revellers taste buds. Organizers chose three local brewers – Hogs Back Brewing Company, Broadhead Brewing

Company and Big Rig Brewery – to provide the suds for the weekend. There’s also going to be Waupoos Cider available and a red and a white wine courtesy of Fuzion. The food vendors are also local – including Ross’ Your Independent Grocer, Thimble Cakes, and Stittsville’s the Glen to name a few. Ottawa’s Oktoberfest celebrations began with a fundraising dinner held by the Rotary Club of Ottawa Kanata Sunrise. It started out as a fundraising dinner and then moved to a weekend-long celebration of local food and froth at the Richmond fairgrounds three years ago. After the move to Barrhaven last year, Brown said the festival moved away from its Rotary roots and now operates as its own not-for-profit in partnership with the Barrhaven Business Improvement Area.

Upside down and backwards: exploring dyslexia In the first of a three-part series, reporter Jennifer McIntosh discusses how she discovered her son had dyslexia and its impact on her child’s education Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - “My stomach hurts.” That’s a common complaint from my son. It starts every September and it ends in June. It’s either the longest flu ever, or he doesn’t like school. James Gannon, now 8, is a friendly outgoing kid. He loves science, plays hockey and wants to be a lawyer when he grows up. Only problem is, he can’t read. He hides it well; he watches my face when he’s sounding out words, so he can see if he’s getting a sound right. He memorizes letter formations to guess at what a word might be. He also stays quiet in class and listens to the teacher. He looks like he’s reading, but he’s not. James has dyslexia. It wasn’t a conclusion that I came to lightly. The problem first began in junior kindergarten. I was flabbergasted when the teacher asked me if my gregarious, intelligent child might have speech problems. He was tested by first words, a screening program done by Ontario Early Years centres, and there didn’t seem to be any problems. With that hurdle cleared I thought things would surely improve. Less than a month later the same teacher came to me with concerns about his writing. “He doesn’t seem to be able to grip the pencil properly,” she said. So I purchased the pencil grip and complained to anyone who would listen about how the school system is designed for girls and my son was being 16

unfairly persecuted. We changed schools for senior kindergarten and then again for Grade 1. He still didn’t seem to like school, but I dismissed it as residual anger from the two moves. In Grade 1, the teacher at our school in Bells Corners said he was having trouble seeing the side board; further investigation found that he had a lazy eye and his eyesight was 20/80. James was excited to put on his first pair of glasses. He picked out blue ones – his favourite colour – and talked about how he was now going to be able to read as well as his best friend. But that didn’t happen. I might never have noticed anything was wrong, except that the same year I attended a workshop called Walk a Mile in My Shoes. The workshop is led by Linda Barbetta, the executive director of the Learning Disabilities Association of Ottawa Carleton. She holds the workshops for educators to help them understand what it’s like to be in an average classroom if you have dyslexia. During each workshop she hands the participants a passage with the letters distributed on different lines, with some reversals. “People spend so much time decoding the message, there’s very little comprehension going on,” she said. “If that had been a math problem, you’d be hard pressed to come up with the solution.” It was like a light bulb went off. I went home and asked my son to tell me what it looked

like to him when he was reading. “Well, the words sometimes move around on the page and it makes it hard to concentrate,” he said. My heart sank. I probably stayed up all night researching dyslexia. The answers I found weren’t encouraging. According to the Ministry of Education in the 2010-11 school year (the most recent figures available) more than 191,600 students provincewide were marked by an identification placement and review committee as exceptional pupils. A further 127,600 students who were not formally identified were provided with special education programs and services. The ministry recognizes 14 exceptionalities – which can include anything from being gifted to autism. It doesn’t officially recognize dyslexia. Barbetta said it’s most commonly classed as a language-based learning disability. To obtain an individualized education plan – commonly referred to as an IEP – most students must be assessed by a psychologist to determine where their strengths and weakness are. In theory, it’s a good idea, except the waiting list for psychological assessments can be upwards of two years, according to Barbetta.

“They won’t tell you how long the list is because it’s fluid,” she said. “Too many parents go outside the system and pay out of pocket to have it done.” That comes with a $2,000 price tag. Knowing I couldn’t afford that, I decided to seek help at the school. With homework in hand I talked to the teacher about James’ letter reversals. “We don’t really worry about that until Grade 3,” she said, despite the fact that she had recently recommended James be put in a remedial reading group. Frustrated with the system, because he was now halfway through Grade 2 and still having trouble, I began to look online for support. Enter Dale Carney, a Kanata resident whose son struggled with reading, writing and spelling. She took him out of the school system in Grade 3 and began homeschooling. It wasn’t until she met Susan Barton, an inductee into the International Dyslexia Association’s Hall of Honour, that she began to research dyslexia and related tutoring methods. It was from her Carney learned about the Orton-Gillingham method. The method of teaching is multi-sensory, kinesthetic, and phonics based. “It’s really about creating new neural pathways to decode language,” Carney said in our pre-testing interview. After the success with her own son, Carney, a former nurse, became certified as a dyslexia testing specialist. I brought her James’ schoolwork from kindergarten to the present day. She interviewed me; we went over his difficulties in school. James came back and sat with her for three hours; they went over phonetic awareness, working memory and his writing. He sat through the whole process patiently. “That was kind of fun mom,” he said. I received Carney’s report a few weeks later, it confirmed

my suspicions. Armed with the report, I went to the school. Carney said the earlier the problem is caught, the better for the learner, it’s a theory shared by Barbetta and many other people who see children with dyslexia on a regular basis. But both the Ottawa public and Catholic school boards insist there’s no need to worry until the third grade. At first the teacher wanted to talk about the 10-page report in 15 minutes. Weeks later, I managed to get a meeting with three teachers at the school – including the head of the resource department. I found out that James was meeting intermittently with a volunteer in the library for reading help. All of his teachers assured me he was very gifted and doing well. I was given a passage he wrote about damage from the perspective of a tornado. He used the words random destruction in the story. “Well then how come he can’t spell ‘away’ at home,” I thought. WHAT’S NEXT

Barbetta said the story is similar to the ones she’s heard from many parents. According to the Dyslexia Research Trust in Oxford, one of the strongest risk factors for dyslexia is having a close relative with reading problems, for example, having a family history of dyslexia. In Barbetta’s family all three of her children have some degree of dyslexia. So does her husband. Her son often attends the workshops she teaches. “He tells me ‘Mom, my eyes and brain tell me different things and I don’t know which one to trust,’” she said. Barbetta has paid out of pocket for psychological assessments for all her three children. It’s gotten so bad she refuses to buy school supplies.

“We have had to purchase computer software and cover the cost of assessments not covered by our insurance. I don’t send them to school with the stuff on the list anymore, I figure the school can supply it,” Barbetta said. The learning disabilities association provides support for parents of children with learning disabilities, helping them to navigate the public school boards to obtain help for their children. Barbetta said at times the work is frustrating and funding can be hard to find, but it’s worth it. “We also offer a list of local tutors and parent support group nights, because let’s face it, it’s hard,” she said. She said most parents just want their children to be happy and successful. “Can you imagine the pressure of attending school every day if you can’t do what’s expected of you?” she asked, adding many kids have anxiety. After my research was finished the picture was pretty grim. But there is a silver lining. Voice-to-text software and proven teaching methods exist to help children overcome the hurdles they have to face because of dyslexia. In Ottawa, there are two private schools available that deal with learning disabilities as part of the curriculum. I also learned it’s a learning disability often associated with creativity. According to the Canadian Dyslexia Association, George Bernard Shaw, Winston Churchill and Leonardo Da Vinci are some of the people believed to have had dyslexia. “You have to be smart to have a learning disability,” Barbetta said. Next week, Jennifer McIntosh examines the resources and barriers to helping children with dyslexia in Ottawa public and Catholic schools. In the third week, she will look at community supports and alternatives for education.

New website to promote safe student drinking Ottawa East News staff

News - A new website to promote safer drinking habits for postsecondary students has been launched just in time for the return of classes this fall. The Safer Ottawa Drinking Alliance addresses unsafe drinking among students and promotes safe habits when it comes to consuming alcohol with a new website, SODAottawa.ca. Partnering with three postsecondary institutions, Al-

gonquin College, La CitĂŠ collĂŠgiale and the University of Ottawa Health Services, the alliance offers students the opportunity to â&#x20AC;&#x153;check your drinking,â&#x20AC;? read Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowrisk alcohol drinking guidelines as well as links to more resources. Sandra McCormick from Algonquin College is the lead project coordinator for the organization said she is looking forward to working with the other institutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With help from our partners, we will strive to create a

culture of safer alcohol use for students in the Ottawa area,â&#x20AC;? McCormick said. Alongside the three postsecondary institutions the alliance has partnered with, there are eight community organizations that are also participating in the new program. Those partners are the Ottawa Public Health, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, ByWard Market event planners OttawaVenues.com, Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, Mothers Against

Drunk Driving Ottawa, the Ontario Provincial Police and Ottawa police and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pleased to see that our postsecondary institutions are taking unsafe drinking practices and the impact on their students seriously by addressing this important issue,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Isra Levy, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical officer of health. According to Levy, in 2011

73 per cent of Ottawa adult males and 48 per cent of Ottawa adult females ages 19-24 years reported heavy drinking, which carries serious shortand long-term health risks. He said that same year, there were more than 700 alcohol related paramedic responses involving youth and young adults aged 15 to 29 in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to ensure young adults are informed about

the dangers and health risks of excessive drinking,â&#x20AC;? Levy added. The organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first awareness campaign will begin this fall, with the focus on encouraging students to measure their own alcohol intake. The awareness campaign intends to employ social media and contests to keep students engaged in the discussion of drinking safely.

Shoreline Cleanup marks 20 years Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Organic waste to be left in the trash Continued from page 1

Watson said he was pleased with the new bins, adding that now residents will be able to recycle and sort garbage just like at home, adding he pilot will help the city determine the best way to implement this type of garbage bin throughout the city. But there is one difference from sorting at home and on Elgin - the new bins do not have a green bin option. According to public works, the green bin option was considered, but not added because of garbage audits from the street leading up to this pilot project, showed there was not enough organic material to warrant a separate container. Holmes agreed. The councillor said the street does have a lot of garbage issues, but organic material is not one of them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see much food garbage left about,â&#x20AC;? Holmes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That food is left in the restaurants, even if you are picnicking, only small amounts end up in the garbage. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

enough to make it worthwhile to have a separate container and a separate service.â&#x20AC;? Holmes said the new bins along the street are a great improvement for an area with a number of lunch and dinner destinations with little options to throw away the garbage which accumulates. The councillor said the garbage pile up on the street is of concern to her and area residents, especially because Elgin Street, unlike Somerset Street West and Bank Street, does not have a business improvement group to help out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many other streets in my ward have BIAs who provide recycling and garbage bins,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So really this is useful for Elgin, which does not have its own BIA.â&#x20AC;? The councillor added she does have some concern about the cross-contamination within the receptacles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all lost (because of cross-contamination), that they do their job,â&#x20AC;? Holmes said.

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup will be coming to the Ottawa River on Sept. 21, with a kickoff event to take place in the shadow of Parliament Hill. Besides collecting trash, the aim of shoreline cleanups is to increase awareness on the effects of local pollution and the wide-ranging consequences of littering. nadian Shoreline Cleanup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The event is particularly relevant here in Ottawa, which takes all of its drinking water from the Ottawa River.â&#x20AC;? Cleanup organizers are hoping to see 64,000 Canadians join the effort this year, up from 57,000 in 2012. Since 1993, a total of 21,775 kilometres of Canadians coastlines -- from ocean beaches to lakeshores and riverbanks -have been cleaned of garbage. The estimated weight of garbage collected over 20 years? 1.2 million kilograms. The very hands-on nature of shoreline cleanups and the abil-

ity to admire the results after a long day of grungy work is a big part of the appeal, said WWF conservation science director Steven Price. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the tangibility of it,â&#x20AC;? said Price. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might not be the most pressing environmental problem, but it is the most actionable. It comes down to a personal responsibility thing, and it is an eye-opener. People always come back shocked at what they removed, and the total weight of the trash collected.â&#x20AC;? Besides picking up a lead sponsor in the form of Loblaw Companies Ltd., the initiative

News - Almost everything thrown, dumped or washed into a river eventually ends up hugging the shoreline of the waterway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; making for an unsightly, polluting presence. While the issues water quality and sewage overflows capture the attention of the public and politicians alike, the job of cleaning up the physical garbage that accumulates on shorelines usually falls at the feet of volunteers. Twenty years ago, fed up with the situation, the Vancouver Aquarium teamed up with the World Wildlife Fund to launch the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Though it started locally, in ensuing years the initiative spread like wildfire to towns and cities across Canada, and Ottawa was no exception. During the week of Sept. 2129, the capital will see many volunteers getting their hands (and boots) dirty along the shores of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many rivers, streams and creeks. The opening day event will take place along the banks of the Ottawa River, in the shadow of Parliament Hill, with subsequent events taking places across Ottawa and Gatineau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Besides just cleaning the shoreline, (the cleanup) raises awareness on the issue of shoreline litter,â&#x20AC;? said Ashley Brasfield, spokeswoman for the Great Ca-

garners its largest number of supporters from local conservation groups that can easily organize cleanup groups, guided by the online protocols and advice offered by the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Registration is accomplished through shorelinecleanup.ca, and necessary checklists can be printed directly off the site.Individual cleanups often hold contests such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;weirdest object found,â&#x20AC;? the results of which can lead to prizes and photos posted on the cleanupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. While objects like plastic bags and six-pack rings are known dangers to wildlife hundreds of kilometres from where they were discarded, unlikely items often turn up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas trees with the lights still on it, a kitchen sink, even a bathtub,â&#x20AC;? Price said, naming off things discovered during cleanups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad when you see a big appliance on a shoreline. We have civic recycling programs that will take these. Why go to the effort of dumping it?â&#x20AC;? Besides having a quantifiable impact on the shoreline and local ecology, Price said, the cleanups serve as a good learning opportunity for those who volunteer. Anyone interested in lending their time at the Parliament Hill kickoff event simply need to show up at the Bytown Museum, near the base of the canal locks, for registration (beginning at 8:15 a.m. on Sept. 21).

ents into the dry mixture until moistened. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let it cool in the pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Run a thin spatula around the edge of the cake then invert it onto the wire rack to cool completely. Invert the cake onto a serving plate. Glaze: Spread apple butter evenly over cake, then sprinkle with pecans, if you are using them. Foodland Ontario

platform called NetSuite. The Trillium cash will be put towards continuing and enhancing that database. On hand for the announcement was Marva Friday from

Samaritan Support Services, a social services organization operating in Ottawa. “The databases at the time, (there were) problems,” said Friday. “This will help so much because we can get together, know what’s going on, see the master file and what is duplicated.” Families that rely on services provided by the many charities have been inconvenienced in the past because of this phenomenon, said Friday. Cindy Smith, executive director of the Caring and Sharing Exchange, expressed her thanks on behalf of her board, partners and volunteers Her aim for the organization moving forward is simple. “We can just keep enhancing what we do, do it better and more efficiently,” said Smith. Erin Fitzpatrick, a social worker with the Southeast Ottawa Community Health Centre, had arrived at the announcement on her way to pick up backpacks filled with school supplies for families living in her area. The back-to-school help provided by the Caring and Sharing Exchange and its partners is crucial, she explained. “We start getting requests in June -- demand is great,” she said, adding, “It’s basically an essential service.”

Support Centre have already been on site to help. She’s worked at the centre for 11 years, and has been using all her accumulated vacation to work on the house. She’s also been volunteering at the Habitat retail ReStore with Gage, who is going into Grade 12. Every house has a dedication ceremony which incorporates each family’s religion or culture as much as possible, Hicks said. Kakekagumick’s

home will likely include a smudging ceremony and blessing of the house. Kakekagumick is hoping hoping the permanent, stable home for the teenagers will be good, and make post-secondary education a realistic future. They will be able to live at home, rent-free with their grandmother and travel to school in the city. The four-bedroom house they will move into on Nantes Street is semi-

Meet sweet, sweet Elly. She’s a nineyear-old spayed female, border collie and Labrador retriever mix was brought to the shelter as a stray in May and is now available for adoption. Elly is a bit of a shy girl, looking

for a family that will give her the time she needs to warm-up to strangers. She prefers a slow approach but is sure to win you over with her cat-like desire to rub up on your to solicit an ear scratch. With

reassurance from a dedicated owner, Elly will be sure to come out of her shell and make a fantastic companion. Elly gets along with dogs who have a calm and predictable approach but may not get along with very energetic pups, as she is easily overwhelmed by fast movements. Jade is a one-year-old, spayed female, brown tabby domestic shorthair cat who was brought to the shelter as a stray in May, and is now available for adoption. She spent quite some time in foster care while recovering from upper respiratory infections, but is now healthy as can be! Jade absolutely loves to play, but has a rough-and-tumble side to her. She would be best suited to an adult only home, or catsaavy family who understand that she can get very excited while she plays. This little girl will be sure to bring a smile to anyone face.

Visit 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.

Ottawa Humane Society Celebrates 125 Years of Helping Animals in Our Community This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Ottawa Humane Society. At that time, Queen Victoria was still on the throne, and Sir John A. Macdonald was serving his second term as prime minister. What began as a small group of women devoted to helping children and enforcing cruelty laws has now grown to an organization dedicated to helping nearly 11,000 animals in Ottawa every year. The OHS is a safe haven for animals, providing life-saving medical treatment, investigating

Cheney

Cheney is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever and has done many interesting things in her life of nine years... She hunted ducks, competed in time trials, and was a very good mommy to two litters of puppies! She is the most graceful, speedy, accurate frisbee player, and she rarely misses, tipping the frisbee with her nose and catching it high in the air. When she looks at you, she expresses so much feeling with her gentle eyes and her playful smile, and she often talks with cute little gurgling noises. Cheney spends time at St. Patrick’s Home, bringing smiles and memories back to the elderly residents who love her visits and ask for her when she is not there. Her most important job in life, though, is to be the kind, loving, cherished pet that she is. Cheney lives with her two buddies Vegas and Ziggy.

Next door, in a single family home, is the third Habitat family moving to the build project.Originally, nine houses were slated for the lots, but the community disagreed with the density, and a compromise was made for the three homes. The two attached homes have one front door and one side door, so it looks like a single family home.

cruelty and neglect, and giving animals a second chance by adopting them into new and loving homes. The OHS would not be what it is today without the support of the people in the community. Dedicated supporters, young and old, attend our events, such as the IAMS Wiggle Waggle Walkathon; host their own events to benefit animals at the shelter; they volunteer; and they help the OHS educate our community on animal welfare.

To celebrate the 125 years of helping the community’s animals, Mayor Jim Watson is slated to kick off Ottawa Humane Society Week on Sept. 3 at the 245 West Hunt Club Rd. shelter. OHS Week culminates with the 25th annual Wiggle Waggle Walkathon and first ever Run for the Animals at Queen Julianna Park on Sept. 8. Be sure to sign up! For more information on the history of the OHS, visit the historical memorabilia collection at ottawahumane.ca.

News - After raising two sons and a daughter, Ide Kakekagumick is doing it all again. The grandmother of three has been raising her two teenage grandsons and granddaughter since 2007 in Nepean. They were going back and forth between several homes, including in the city and on a nearby First Nations reserve. “They were bumped around,” Kakekagumick said of the children. “So this will be good and stable. I just want them to be happy and comfortable.”She applied for the Habitat for Humanity program because she wanted a steady home for Gage, 17, Donovan, 15, and Erica, 16, who she gained legal custody of in 2010. Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region CEO Donna Hicks said the family’s new home on Nantes Street in Orléans is the first Aboriginal urban build for the region. Hicks said Habitat for Humanity is helping the aboriginal community because the next step after settling in a rental home in the city is home ownership. This week, local band chiefs and local aboriginal councils were scheduled to come to help out on the home build, and several of Kakekagumick’s co-workers at the Aboriginal Women’s

Habitat provides the families seminars on things like financial planning and home repair, and monitors the families through the move to make sure maintenance like grass cutting and snow removal is being done. Kakekagumick was on the build site all last week, working on the home as it slowly starts to take shape. She can imagine where a few things are going to go, like her grandson’s weights in the basement, but said Erica is excited to set the full house up. “Ide was a good choice because she’s someone who was so caring for her grandchildren,” Hicks said, adding it’s a big responsibility for a woman in her 50s to take in three young teenagers. The family will be able to move in for the start of December, just in time to celebrate their first Christmas in the new home. Moving to Orléans will be a safe home for Kakekagumick and her family, with a bus stop right outside. Right now, she worries about the kids walking down her unlit street at night, but she smiles as she points out all the street lights around her new home. She was also quick to break out into a smile when she saw a box of cable for televisions, and was told that there would be a cable connection in each room. “Everything is just unbelievable,” she said. “Every chance I get, I always thank all the volunteers, for giving us this chance.”

Wilkinson tried to have the casino vote delayed to another meeting so council could receive a report on the Ontario Horse Racing Industry Panelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommended funding for the raceway and the annual rental revenue the city could receive from that. She said council has moved rather quickly from preferring a full, open process to being speciďŹ c about the site. The risk of beneďŹ tting one business over another opens the city up to a more serious lawsuit than councillors realize, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the way we normally operate and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the way it should be,â&#x20AC;?

Melnyk said his lawyer, Paul Webber, has said what the city is doing is â&#x20AC;&#x153;inappropriate and possibly illegalâ&#x20AC;? and alluded to possible legal action against the city. Casino proponents on council say the bidding process is open and have suggested Melynk could bid to operate gambling facilities on any site, including at the raceway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to be cautious and maybe overt that we are not closed for business,â&#x20AC;? said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not interested in helping them be economically viable and successful.â&#x20AC;? Qadri, who has supported

First day of school was a special occasion

W

â&#x153;

MARY COOK Memories like Mr. Briscoe did at the General Store in Northcote. The boys were warned to be careful with the running shoes, because they would be the only ones they would be getting, even if they fell apart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No scuffing along the side road,â&#x20AC;? she would bellow, as we all headed out the lane that first day back to school. If some misfortune happened to the running shoes, the brothers would have to resort to wearing their gum-rubbers, which made their feet sweat. If enough boys were in their gum-rubbers all at the same time at school, the whole place smelled to high heaven, causing Miss Crosby to fling the windows wide even on the coldest fall days. And so it was that first day back to the Northcote School, the three brothers in their new running shoes which they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed to put on their feet until that morning, me in my boys brogues that had been shined with bacon fat and our lunches in clean brown paper bags, we headed off. At the end of the lane, Velma waited for me. The Thoms boys and my three brothers raced off down the dirt road. Boys never carried their lunch bags openly. They tucked them inside the front of their shirts, which did nothing to keep the sandwiches in one piece. We girls put our lunches in our book bags, in with our new scribblers and whatever books Mother had to buy at the drug store. And always we girls carried a freshly laundered handkerchief, neatly folded, tucked in our book

LITNA HERBAL TOOTHPASTE

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Miss Crosby â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the same dress she had worn on the last day of school two months before. She would still smell of lilac talcum powder and her black laced shoes would be so shiny you could see your face in them. That first day of school we were allowed to go home mid-afternoon. Instead of calling a recess, Miss Crosby would announce that school was over for that day. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d head back out to the road that went by the school and that day we would take the long way home. Down the Rink Road and over to Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store, because that day, and that day only, we would all have been given a nickel. Audreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and mine were tied in the corner of our hankies and the brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rattling around in their overall pockets with the usual collection of sling-shots, pieces of string, a couple of nails, and their dime-store jack knives. It would be like a small invasion,

as en mass we crowded into the store and headed right for the candy counter. The boys of the Northcote School would forgo the little brown paper bag and instead cram their nickelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of candy deep into their overall pockets. Usually, they bought licorice pipes. We girls picked candies like discs, stuck to strips of white paper, with little words printed on them. Often Velma and I would buy one box of nickel Cracker Jacks and a nickelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of peppermints and share them on the way home. Once again, every day, the Northcote Road would lead us to and from the school. There would be no rides because of bad weather. It was a trek we were well used to. In good weather and bad, like a washboard ribbon parched dry when there was no rain, covered in ruts when there was, and icy and snow-covered when winter came, the Northcote Road was as familiar to us as the backs of our hands.

bag as well. If Kleenex had been invented back then, we certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about it. Mother always tried to have my sister Audrey and I wearing something new for that first day back to school. Not store-bought, of course, but something she would have made from a leftover from the hand-medown box or from a well-bleached pair of flour bags. Mother favoured making blouses, simple ones with little round Peter Pan collars, and she would search through her sewing basket until she found pieces of rick-rack braid which she would sew around the cuffs of the puffed sleeves and the round collar. Very clever was my Mother, I thought back then. Even though we had seen the neighbourhood children many times over the summer, at church picnics, ball games and family gettogethers, on that first day back to school it was as if we hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t laid eyes on them for years. There would be the Briscoe twins in identical dresses. My little friend Joyce, always with something brand new that had probably come out of Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store in Renfrew, and of course, my rival Marguirite would have had a new permanent wave in her drug-store bleached Shirley Temple curls and she would be in shiny black patent leather Mary Jane shoes, with little white socks that had lace around the tops. And there would be our teacher

â&#x153;

e thought nothing of the five-and-a-half kilometre trek to the Northcote School. There were others who walked much further. And if, for any reason, we had to make a stop at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store that meant at least another kilometre and a half, as we had to walk the Rink Road to get there, bypassing Plaunt Road which was our usual way of getting to and from school. When we got to the end of our long lane, and onto the Northcote Side Road, we would meet up with the Thoms, our next-farmover neighbours. Velma and I, best friends, would hold hands all the way to the school. My three brothers wanted no part of we younger ones and they would tear ahead of us, leaving us behind, as if we had the plague. It was a dirt road all the way and by the time we got to school our socks were covered with dust and our shoes looked like they had been through a war. I was in boys brown brogue laced shoes that had come in the hand-me-down box from Aunt Lizzie in Regina and I secretly prayed that those shoes would fall apart one day and I could wear my Sunday-go-to-church shoes, which were just marginally better than the boys brogues. This time of year my three brothers, who every year Mother swore had grown a foot over the summer, had new running shoes to wear the first day back to school. They covered their ankles, and laced from the toes to the tops and had thick black soles. If Mother didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t order them from the Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue, they were bought in Renfrew where she bargained for the best price, paying the princely sum of 98 cents a pair â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the stores in Renfrew werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too happy about trading a couple chickens or fresh eggs
