News - Old Ottawa East residents were atwitter about the future of their community as they celebrated the successes of 2013 at their annual general meeting. Two years after the community design plan envisioned new residents in the institutional lands located beside St. Paul University, doubling the neighbourhood’s population, the community association received word that the property had finally been sold. At the association’s annual general meeting, held Nov. 12, members were told of a partnership between Monarch Homes and Walton Development and Management, a large North American land-

holding company. That’s not quite true, said Walton president, Jason Child in an interview. No transaction has been completed. “Yes we’ve been involved in the process,” he said. “Yes, we’re a natural candidate to buy it,” but any involvement in that procurement process has to remain confidential, Child said. “At this point, the official word is: we can’t talk about it.” But Child said Walton, which has extensive undeveloped holdings in southwest Ottawa, is “very bullish on the Ottawa market.” “We’re eager to bring new ideas and new developments with the city,” he said.

to participate in different activities in sports, for community service and volunteer opportunities, organized trips, and hobby groups. Operating since 1996 at Le Patro in Lowertown, the group has only focused on the francophone community. A grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation for $313,900 will change that by allowing servic-

es to be extended to as many as 18 satellite organizations for both languages. “There is a need,” said Jean Luc Racine, Retraite en Action executive director. “I get calls all the time from Englishspeaking groups that want to participate. Right now there is nothing, but we are hoping to expand that.” Ottawa-Vanier MPP Mad-

eleine Meilleur announced the provincial grant at a monthly breakfast meeting on Nov.12. “Thanks to your tailor-made programs and the values that motivate you, young of mind, body and spirit, you will be able to nurture the development and fulfillment of an active and dynamic retirement,” Meilleur said. The plan is to start up three anglophone groups in the city by spring of 2014. Dubbed Retirees in Motion - the English

counterpart of the organization will operate the same way by attracting young retirees and baby boomers from across the province to get involved in joining an activities group. To do that, Racine said, the club has a strong focus on promoting passions. “To get people interested, it has to be different than a traditional seniors group,” he said. See PASSIONS, page 10

News - The city has a new leader in the battle against homelessness after the Alliance to End Homelessness announced Mike Bulthuis is taking over the reins of the organization. The current Vanier Community Association president succeeds Lynne Browne, who recently stepped down, in the position. Bulthuis is a social policy and poverty reduction worker who has experience working on national-based policies to help end homelessness. The new executive director said he is looking forward to working at a community level to squash homelessness in the city. “The alliance draws together the breadth of experience and insight within our community, collectively pursuing and calling for an end to homelessness,� Bulthuis said. “I am excited to join with so many others in Ottawa, working with all orders of government, nonprofit organizations, the private sector and the community towards this goal.� Bulthuis’s past experience includes working in the public service, with a focus on development of social policy.

He also volunteers his time on community boards, including the city’s former health and social services advisory committee. The alliance, founded in 1995, consists of a membership base of 45 different city organizations as well as individual members. Organizations in the alliance include the Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health, Action Housing, Minwaashin Lodge, Centre 454, Bruce House, Operation Come Home and the Youth Services Bureau. Bulthuis said he is looking forward to working with these organizations, some of which he sees as both mentors and leaders in the fight against homelessness. FORUM

The change-over of directors is just in time for the alliance’s annual fall forum, which will take place on Nov. 26 at the University of Ottawa. The forum will welcome members and interested participants, providing an opportunity to discuss housing and social innovations, reflection of homelessness in Ottawa and toolkits to help work with landlords. The Wellesley Institute’s director of housing Michael

Shapcott and Jino Distasio, director of the Institute of Urban Studies at the University of Winnipeg, will be presenting at the forum. Plans for the upcoming year include conducting the alliance’s 2013 annual report card on ending homelessness, which will be released in the spring. In the alliance’s 2012 report, the group gave the city an “A� for making affordable housing available to the homeless. According to the report, 139 new affordable units were created in the community and an additional 747 households were helped with rent, with the majority of that paid through the city. Bulthuis applauds the city for its commitment to help reduce homelessness, but said the annual $14 million pledged by city council in May 2011 to increase the supply of affordable housing and providing housing options is just a drop in the bucket when it comes to what the city needs to completely end homelessness. “The ultimate solution for homelessness is housing,� Bulthuis said. “I know it’s possible. I know what we are trying to do is possible. There is no need for people to be homeless for a long period of time.� R0012420436

School of Dance celebrates Down syndrome awareness Program helps children learn, discover life skills through music, imagination michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A project at a New Edinburgh dance school is helping students with Down syndrome find the opportunity to learn a different way. The School of Dance’s DragonFly Project offers children with Down syndrome the ability to learn life skills through music and dance. The school’s owner and artistic director, Merrilee Hodgins, teaches the program. “We celebrate the creative process at the School of Dance, which allows for a carefully designed, respectful and non-judgmental learning environment in which fun and challenge coexist in a very positive way,” Hodgins said. “I love seeing each new DragonFly participant develop a sense of belonging.” As part of the program, the school will be celebrating Down syndrome awareness week with a DragonFly project open house on Nov. 29. According to the school, the program allows students to develop better co-ordination, increased physical strength and balance, greater eye focus and communication, a deeper understanding of the principles of counting and an expanded comprehension of character, narrative and story. “They begin to see themselves as a dancer and learner and this leads to a sense of self-expectation which in turn develops a confident curiosity in their world,” Hodgins said. “That is what the DragonFly Project is all about.” The program was developed by Hodgins and Barbara Roblin four years ago. “We knew immediately that together we could create a rich learning experience that would be engaging, challenging and meaningful,”

Hodgins said. “Our goal was to harness the power of dance as an educational tool to develop key academic, artistic and physical skills.” Roblin added that students with Down syndrome are often very tactile, physical learners. “Dance, music and imagination are key in unlocking their abilities,” Roblin said. The program runs year-round. In addition, the school will be offering parents the choice to register for the school’s 2014 summer camp programming.

Study explores what it takes for women to feel safe Titled Women and Girls’ Eyes on the Neighbourhood: Feeling Safe in Public Space, the findings in the study stem from a safety audit and workshops organized by the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre, the City for All Women Initiative and Women’s Initiatives for Safer Environments. An array of women and girls from the socio-economically diverse communities of Foster Farm, Michelle Heights, Britannia Woods and Morrison Gardens were engaged in conversations and surveyed during the study, while a safety audit was staged to contrast with results from a 2007 audit. “Women’s safety, as in all aspects of civilized society, is dependent on the concerted, collaborative and collective efforts of all members of society, said Crime Prevention Ottawa chairman Shad Quadri.

News - With a recent rash of reports detailing attacks on women in Ottawa, a timely speaking event at city hall sought to address some of the issues facing residents. While advice aimed at helping these individuals avoid a potential attack are sometimes met with backlash over perceived “victim-blaming,’ the reality in Ottawa and any other large city in 2013 is that danger for women and girls exists, and along with it fear. How does this threat to safety manifest itself in the behaviour and feelings of women and girls, and what can be done to make public spaces safer for them? Those questions were explored on Nov. 14, as the Crime Prevention Ottawa’s Speaker’s Series examined the results of a west-end safety audit.

According to Robynn Collins of the Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre, â&#x20AC;&#x153;safety is a serious obstacle to achieving gender equality,â&#x20AC;? and that â&#x20AC;&#x153;violence demonstrates lives and fractures communities.â&#x20AC;? In the studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s survey, participants were asked to gauge their feelings of personal safety (or lack thereof) using the Remsberg Awareness Spectrum. The responses of the 41 women surveyed were revealing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of the total, 20 participants reported feeling unsafe or somewhat unsafe while walking in their neighbourhoods. Of those who reported feeling safe, 12 participants admitted there were times when they did feel unsafe. Thirty out of the 41 said they felt safe or somewhat safe while taking public transit, while nine out of 41 said they

sometimes felt unsafe at transit shelters. During conversations with the participants of the workshops, Roberta Della Picca of City for All Women Initiative said she noted a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cross-generational shift in respect to young womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitudes towards harassment.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was shocked what some women are tolerating in society today,â&#x20AC;? she added. With the aim of changing neighbourhoods to make women and girls feel safer, participants were asked to identify the various elements that make them feel unsafe. Elsy David of Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Initiatives for Safer Environments said that improvements were noted between this safety audit and the one performed in 2007, but opportunities for further improvements existed. Improved lighting, signage, maintenance of certain

areas and increased visible patrols from police and Ottawa Community Housing safety officers were listed as solutions. Recommendations stemming from the study included the aforementioned community improvements, plus the need for increased resident participation and engagement, education, further involvement from community partners (including OC Transpo and Ottawa Community Housing), visual expressions of public pride in their community, and beautification projects. Included in the discussion of the study results were representatives from the Ottawa Police Service, OCH, OC Transpo, and Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, all of whom pledged their continuing support in increasing safety for women and girls in Ottawa communities.

Lowertown truck tunnel study in the pipes, Fleury says laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A study of a tunnel for heavy trucks under the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown is no longer a pipe dream, says Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. After months of discussions with the provincial Ministry of Transportation, Fleury will ask the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation committee and council to formally request that the province partner on the study to bury the truck route. And he expects the province to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;yes.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come very

to tackle the truck issue. That will give the idea the weight it needs for the province to consider it, Fleury said. The motion was still on the table to be considered by transportation committee when this newspaper went to press. But Fleury said councillors, staff and the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office are on board. The tunnel is an alternate solution to get trucks out of the downtown, following the provincial governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to scrap plans for a new, east-end bridge to Quebec that could have eased the number

quickly,â&#x20AC;? Fleury said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be in the (transportation master plan), we have a good plan.â&#x20AC;? Fleuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion would have the city formally ask the province to partner and help pay for a feasibility assessment for a tunnel from Highway 417 to the MacDonald-Cartier Bridge. Fleury said the study could cost around $750,000, which would be shared between the city and province if Ontario agrees to it. Once that motion is adopted, it would mean the city has a plan in place for how it wants

of trucks going through the downtown. Approximately 2,500 trucks travel through Lowertown on King Edward Avenue on a typical weekday and that number is expected to increase by one or two per cent each year. The truck route through the city takes them onto Waller and Rideau streets as well. In the past, the possibility of a tunnel was excluded from interprovincial transportation studies due to â&#x20AC;&#x153;technical and operationalâ&#x20AC;? reasons, including

the expense of digging a tunnel through a densely developed area. The more recent effort to study a route for a new interprovincial bridge dragged on for six years and spent $7 million before the province indicated it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support any of the three proposed routes. The National Capital Commission subsequently stopped the study shortly thereafter back in June. At the time, Fleury said the NCC stepping back bolstered the transportation ministryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

News - Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli announced on Nov. 13 at an Ottawa press conference that Ontarians will get to have their say on the proposed Energy East Pipeline. TransCanada announced the pipeline project in August. If approved, Energy East would transport more than one million barrels of Alberta oil through Ontario to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s east coast. The project needs to be approved by the National Energy Board (NEB) to go ahead. If it gets the NEBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval, about 2,000 kilometres of pipeline would be built in Ontario, including underneath the Rideau River. Environmental activist group Ecology Ottawa applauded Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to incorporate community concerns, including those of First Nations communities, in a report that will go to the Ontario Energy Board. The OEB will then submit a report to the NEB. No date has been set for when the consultation pro-

hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No matter how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a challenge to make sure every single community and every single voice is heard,â&#x20AC;? said Powless. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When TransCanada went through and did their open houses and public consultation, already very few people knew about it. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really advertise them widely. I think that definitely needs to change.â&#x20AC;?

cess will begin, but Chiarelli hinted it will be in the coming months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want this engagement with the Ontario Energy Board to inform our intervention,â&#x20AC;? said Chiarelli. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So how much control do we have? It will have to be public suasion; it will be bringing evidence to the table as intervener. But doing so will not be easy, warns Ecology Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ben Powless, who attended the press conference at city 7,&2

responsibility on the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It puts the pressure back onto the MTO and the province,â&#x20AC;? he said at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear now that the MTO needs to find a way to connect the 417 to the 400-series highway on the Quebec side, which is the 50.â&#x20AC;? In June, Fleury said he saw a â&#x20AC;&#x153;political willingnessâ&#x20AC;? to address the issue since the province rejected a bridge. As far as the NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future role on the truck issue, in June Fleury said â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see.â&#x20AC;?

uOttawa launches new user-friendly website Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - After consulting with more than 5,000 students, the University of Ottawa has launched a new user-friendly website. The site, uottawa.ca, offers students a number of ways to find programs, costs, information about deadlines, events or library books without having to navigate away from the home page.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our commitment uOttawa students is to continually improve the university experience, on campus and online. This new website is a major step forward,â&#x20AC;? said the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president Allan Rock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the student experience to be rewarding from the very first click or tap.â&#x20AC;? According to the university, the website sees a large amount of traffic, with more than 4.6 million clicks per month and 51.5 million visits

and prospective students the information they need more quickly. The university campus is front and centre, with background images of what life is like at uOttawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Increasingly, uOttawa. ca is the first point of contact between a future or current student and the university,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want visitors to find the information they came for, but we also want them to get a real sense of the immense beauty and vibrancy of our campus life.â&#x20AC;? The first major redesign of the website since its launch in 1997, the changes can currently only be seen on the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home page, but Anderson said eventually the entire uOttawa.ca will be on the new platform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will listen to our users, particularly students, and we will continue to improve,â&#x20AC;?

Equality canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be compromised

C

ity council will soon begin discussions about a new layer of red tape designed to single out students and their landlords. The move is an attempt to create a second class of people in our city: renters. Coun. Rick Chiarelli plans to propose the regulation of rental properties, but only near Algonquin College. Landlords would need licences, and those licences would be in jeopardy if the renters bother the neighbours. Our youth, it seems, should be neither seen nor heard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a case of picking on the voters a councillor may feel they can ignore as they placate homeowners who may be bothered by noise or mess at a nearby rental property. Never mind that the city has noise and property standards bylaws already in place; better to cater to those who cast ballots in greater numbers. The proposed regulation also presumes homeowners donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make noise or a mess. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hint that homeowners might need regulating in Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world. Adding the red tape of a licensing system for landlords near Algonquin could result in good, neighbourly students being booted out if landlords

decide one young person is one too many. Why take chances? If the process in onerous enough we may also see some landlords throw their hands up and walk away, selling off properties for non-residential uses. Would homeowners near the college prefer a drivethrough fast food outlet or gas station next door or across the street instead of rental homes? It should be obvious to anyone buying a home near Algonquin College that students may also want to live in the neighbourhood. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students and those seeking an education in the future shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay the price for a homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of due diligence. Push out the students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from neighbourhoods within walking distance of the college â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and maybe we can instead look forward to having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;student ghettoâ&#x20AC;? elsewhere in our city where there are fewer complaints (or ones the bylaw department can ignore) instead of young renters spread evenly amongst us. The Chiarelli plan probably sounds like music to the ears of some homeowners, but it also says owners have more rights than renters. This person is more important than that person. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both divisive and small-minded.

JFK, the news and the changing times

W

ith increasing frequency, you get reminders of how time has changed. Take this week, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The first reminder of how much time has changed is the fact that anyone under the age of, say, 55 has no recollection at all of the event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an event that older people, and not just Americans, count as one of the most important memories of their lives. For those who are old enough, the Kennedy assassination is one of those where-were-you moments. Some of the others might be, for Canadians, the October Crisis of 1970, another event that many are too young to remember, and 9/11, which is still way too close. Those of us who were around at the time John Kennedy was shot remember being glued to our TV sets all weekend. The assassination happened early Friday afternoon and TV coverage was around the clock. Unlike today, we were dependent on television and, to a lesser extent, the newspapers, for the latest developments. Today information would be flying around on the Internet every minute. Not all of that information would be accurate, mind you. Those were the days of afternoon newspa-

Later, an extra edition would fill in more details. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another way times have changed: afternoon newspapers. You could do a lot with afternoon deadlines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get the west coast hockey results into the paper, as well as the overnight reviews of concerts, the morning developments at city council and, when necessary, an assassination.

events at the World Trade Center in New York, and as recently as this month, a Toronto newspaper, The Sun, put out an extra to recount the latest developments in the Rob Ford saga. On such occasions, newspapers remember how important they are to people and go to extra lengths to put the information out. But by now, most readers are accustomed to going on line, often on newspaper websites. Times have changed. It would be nice if afternoon newspapers were around to record them. What we in the newspaper biz were told back in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s was that people were demanding a newspaper on their kitchen table in the morning. What we were also told, perhaps more significantly, was that advertisers wanted their ads on those kitchen tables all day, instead of just from late afternoon on. So all of the major papers in the country, and on the continent, went morning. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intriguing to speculate about what might have happened if they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done so. With those early deadlines, often before midnight, the newspapers could get to the breakfast table easily, but there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as much in them. Readers had to go elsewhere to find out who won some baseball and hockey games from the previous night. If they saw reviews of concerts, the reviews were written

about the first half. If there was a political development, a crime or an accident in the morning, they would read about it the next morning. That helped radio news and television news and, when it came along, that helped the Internet. The daily newspaper was becoming less of a factor in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily lives and less central to them when a major event occurred. Obviously there are still things a newspaper can do, such as provide exhaustive coverage, in-depth reporting and context. On Nov. 22, 1963, people looked to the daily newspaper for it. Today they look elsewhere.

Raise the water, all canoes float higher

A

number of years ago, I attended a graduation ceremony. The keynote speaker went on for what seemed like forever. But there was one line that stood out toward the end: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we lift the level of the water, everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canoe will float a little higher.â&#x20AC;? The message was that we, graduates, should go forth and do something for the betterment of society, specifically for the poorest among us. Last week, an article in the Globe and Mail by health reporter Andre Picard brought home the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing enough in this country to lift the level of the water. Not by a long shot. In â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wealth begets health,â&#x20AC;? part of the Globeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wealth paradox,â&#x20AC;? Picard puts forward some startling health statistics correlating to income. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a quotable quote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Virtually

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse every measure of population health â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from child mortality to rates of cancer, cardiovascular disease and traumatic injury â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is worse in poor areas than in wealth ones.â&#x20AC;? How can that be? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we all have universal access to healthcare? Yes, writes Picard. But access is not the issue. Poverty, rather, is the underlying cause of disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Physiologically, the damage done by poverty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; absolute and relative,â&#x20AC;? writes Picard, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is believed to be caused principally by stress, which can affect brain development, cause heart damage, and can even alter DNA.â&#x20AC;?

There are so many shocking statistics and quotes in Picardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to know where to begin to solve the problems. He notes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the risk of dying of cancer within five years of diagnosis is 47 per cent higher in the low income group than the high income one,â&#x20AC;? that those in low income groups are less likely to have a family doctor, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;people living in poor neighbourhoods have a 37 per cent greater risk of suffering a heart attack than those in wealthier communities.â&#x20AC;? He tells us that â&#x20AC;&#x153;children born to low-income parents are twice as likely to end up

in special education class and three times as likely to suffer mental health problems than those in the highest income group.â&#x20AC;? Further, those in low income groups are more likely to drop out of high school, have a 58 per cent higher infant mortality rate and an 83 per cent higher rate of sudden infant death syndrome. At what point do we â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the governments that represent us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; step in to turn this situation around? Are we all so concerned about our individual wealth that we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the elephant in the room? And yet, there is almost nothing on the radar of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s politicians that seems to address these stark realities. At the federal level, Prime Minister Stephen Harper continues to tout his party as the one for Canadian families, and yet he has failed to introduce a national childcare strategy, and failed to implement any deep and meaning-

Association hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been contacted about potential deal Old Ottawa East Community Association president John Dance emphasized during the annual general meeting that the community was looking forward to seeing the Oblate lands developed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the context of the recently adopted community design plan and secondary plan. Child said not all of Waltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projects are developed in the context of such a plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s process and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll embrace that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, whatever the document is called, it comes down to what the community is excited to see.â&#x20AC;? Child said Waltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main objective is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;do whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right

for the local community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, our experience and our success in other market starts with a blank slate and being able to provide, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more integrated communities, different densities, different transit options, different infrastructure options â&#x20AC;Ś What we like to do is get involved on Day 1 and work our way through that.â&#x20AC;? The way Walton works is by â&#x20AC;&#x153;master planningâ&#x20AC;? large parcels of land and then working with a group of local builders to develop and construct the area. Dance said the community association hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been contacted by any company interested in purchasing the land,

R0012422753_1121

Continued from page 1

but the group looks forward to a dialog with any developers. Potential movement toward redeveloping the Oblate lands would build on a great deal of activity in the neighbourhood over the last year. Dance outlined a number of wins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not the least of which was successfully lobbying the city to rebuild Main Street as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;complete street,â&#x20AC;? with wider sidewalks, cycling tracks

and fewer lanes for cars. Construction on the street and the McIlraith Bridge will begin next year and there are still many opportunities for the community to participate, particularly when it comes to ongoing maintenance of newly greened corners and parkettes that will be built. The neighbourhood also celebrated success in making its voice heard to protect

ful tax benefits for Canadian families. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen veterans pensions attacked and the old age security age hiked. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, social spending is not, primarily, a Conservative value. At the provincial level, under the Liberals, we have seen cuts to healthcare, including, most recently, a halt to longterm physiotherapy services, a move that has penalized the elderly, the disabled and those on fixed income. School breakfast programs are the exception rather than the norm. And full-day kindergarten has failed to address the reality that families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; single mothers in particular â&#x20AC;&#x201C; need quality childcare, not shoddy education. At the municipal level â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who knows whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on at the City of Ottawa? It seems bus fares and library user fees increase at every annual budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two things that affect low-income families

more than anyone else â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while the police budget is forever increasing. The food bank is taxed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with increasing demand year over year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with people mostly donating only seasonally, and often with food that is lacking on the nutrition level. This is not just an issue for the political left. Poverty, as Picard notes, affects our economy and siphons tax dollars unnecessarily, affecting productivity, and adding costs to â&#x20AC;&#x153;an already overburdened healthcare system.â&#x20AC;? Picard cites one study that suggests if â&#x20AC;&#x153;those in the bottom 20 per cent of income earned as much as those one step higher on the income ladder, the savings to the health system would be $7.6 billion a year.â&#x20AC;? Are you looking for a raise? Or are you looking to raise the level of the water? Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we work together to get everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canoe to float a little bit higher?

the green space near the Lees apartment towers, which the city had proposed to pave over to provide alternate parking for the University of Ottawa to make up for a lot being taken over by LRT construction. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to push the second phase of the Alta Vista Transportation Corridor over the Rideau River into Old Ottawa East was pushed down the list in the transportation master plan and the project wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin until at least 18 years into the future at the

earliest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a major success for the community, Dance said. The community is also receiving a lot of attention through a transit-oriented design plan for the Lees Station area. The footbridge over the canal from Clegg Street to Fifth Avenue was designed and won a city design awardâ&#x20AC;Ś although its construction was pushed down the schedule to be built between 2020-25. Completing and improving the Rideau River nature trail is also underway.

‘You have to work with their passions,’ organizer says of unique group Continued from page 1

“You have to work with their passions, get them excited to participate.” And as far as the organization is concerned, it has been working. The expansion of the francophone group has grown quickly and according to Racine, it has all been based on word of mouth. In September alone, he said 200 new members signed up. “There is no promotion, but it keeps growing, people want to be apart of this group.” There are 350 programs

and activities which operate in the Ottawa region, aimed at members ranging in age from 55 to 90 years old. “We are attracting people who want to be active,” Racine said. Typically, he said, the group will hold monthly meetings where a member will present a recent trip, outing or sporting adventure to the group. Racine said this helps motivate more members to do the same. In the coming months, expansion plans will evolve, Racine said, as the need arises but the executive director said

he will be taking some time to reach out to specific existing anglophone organizations to see if they are interested in partnering with Retraite en Action. The funding will be handed out over a three year period. The satellite organizations will receive support and guidance from Retraite en Action, but will be individual organizations, managing separate memberships. For more information about the upcoming English senior programming, Racine invites people to give him a call at 1866-323-6695, ext. 21.

IN THE MATTER OF THE ONTARIO HERITAGE ACT Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on November 13, 2013 established its intention to designate the St. Charles Church, 135 Barrette Street, under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value. Description of Property St. Charles Church, 135 Barrette Street, constructed in 1908, is a large, brick clad wooden Roman Catholic Church. It is located between Beechwood Avenue and Barrette Street in Ottawa’s Vanier neighbourhood. Heritage Value The cultural heritage value of St. Charles Church lies in it being a good example of the Québec Neoclassical style, its important role in the Francophone Catholic community and in its contextual value as a landmark in Vanier. Designed by Québec architect Charles Brodeur, St. Charles Church is a good example of the Québec Neoclassical style. Neoclassicism was popular in Canada from 1800 until 1860 but churches continued to be built in this style in Québec and French-speaking Parishes outside of Québec into the 20th century. Typical of the style, St. Charles Church has a smooth, symmetrical façade and a simple, cruciform plan. It features a symmetrical fenestration pattern, and a projecting entrance tower topped by a wooden belfry and flanked by two tower like corner pilasters topped with smaller belfries. St. Charles Church has historical value for its association with the Francophone Catholic community in Ottawa. The congregation was formed in 1908 in response to demands by the local Catholic community who thought that other Francophone churches in Ottawa were too far away from Vanier. In 1912, Father François-Xavier Barrette was appointed Parish Priest and under his guidance, the church quickly became the centre of the Francophone Catholic community in Vanier. In 1926, Barrette and a small group of civil servants formed the Order of Jacques Cartier, an all male secret society intended to protect and promote Francophone Catholic values. It grew rapidly in the first half of the 20th century and is credited with the development of many Francophone organizations including Club Richelieu International, a service club that is still active today. The Order of Jacques Cartier was dissolved in 1965, as a result of the societal changes prompted by the Quiet Revolution. The location of St. Charles Church along the curve of Beechwood Avenue and its tower topped with a blue neon cross make it a prominent local landmark. It has contextual value as it contributes to the distinctive French Canadian identity in the Vanier community.

Probus club hears about forgotten war in Korea Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The Korean War was forgotten almost while it was going on, said Carleton University historian Andrew Burtch. In the 60th year after the armistice that ended the conflict, Burtch said it’s important to remember the war that cost 516 Canadian lives, making it the third deadliest in our country’s history. “More than 26,000 Canadian soldiers served in that war, but they didn’t come home to fanfare and parades,” he said. Burtch spoke to the Probus Club of Western Ottawa on Nov. 12 at the Kanata United Church. Burtch said the circumstances at the end of the Second World War provided the fodder for the conflict, not unlike the situation in east and west Berlin. “We had the communist regimes of China and the Soviet Union in charge of the northern part of Korea and the U.S. capitalist mentality in the south. War broke out when North Korean forces crossed the

38th parallel into South Korea on June 25, 1950. The South Koreans were unprepared for the assault and were pushed all the way to the Pusan peninsula before UN forces joined the fray to keep the North Koreans at bay. Burtch said because Canada was focused on rebuilding the economy with the soldiers returning from Europe, it was harder to man the missions to Korea. “You got a lot of people who re-enlisted because they had trouble readjusting to civilian life or people who had wanted to join up in the Second World War but were too young,” he said. A new Canadian battalion joined the fight in August 1950, but had to train for an additional eight weeks to deal with the mountainous terrain. Burtch said most of the fighting took place at night and guerilla warfare was common. “The Chinese army was very well trained in these tactics,” he said. Eight Canadian destroyers were sent to Korea’s coast, but they were regularly under fire and their targets tough to

orthotics are handmade in their onsite lab to address patients’ individual needs. While store bought orthotics only last about six-months custom orthotics are made from more durable material and can last up to fouryears. If your feet change or concerns about comfort arise during that time, you can have them modified at BioPed instead of having to purchase a completely new pair. You might think that custom orthotics are too expensive. However, you’re more likely to go through several pairs of store-bought orthotics over the same period of time.

Proposed housing policy not anti-student: Chiarelli Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - A proposed city policy that would introduce a demerit-point system for landlords renting out rooms in the area surrounding Algonquin College isn’t about punishing students, College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said. The proposal – which would require landlords to have inspections by city staff before renting out multiple rooms – aims to address some of the concerns about property standards, traffic and noise. “There are ads on Kijiji

that talk about renting a room in a great party spot,” Chiarelli said. “That’s just poking residents in the eye.” He said he visited the Ontario cities of Waterloo, Oshawa and Kitchener, in an effort to see what they have done with about student housing concerns. Chiarelli said his proposal is a merger of all the things those cities had done “Then we presented the options to the community in a series of meetings,” he said. Chiarelli added the last of the public meetings took place on Oct. 24. The Nepean-Barrhaven News was not

made aware of any meetings to discuss regulation of landlords or properties. Chiarelli said he has encountered some opposition around the council table, but he thinks he can make a case for the new regulations. “There were a lot of residents from Ryan Farm and Cityview that took part,” he said. “The plan now is to ask staff to conduct research and come back with recommendations on moving forward in the new year. That’s still the plan.” Chiarelli said the new rules would only impact a finite number of streets surround-

ing the college. The intent is to define the area by spikes in the number of noise, nuisance and property standards complaints. Chiarelli said staff have some concerns about defining a perimeter, but he said a Supreme Court challenge by Oshawa’s city council in 2009 allowed them to define an area. “I think it’s something we could do,” he said. Rooming houses around the college are only allowed on Woodroffe Avenue, Meadowlands Drive and Baseline Road, but homeowners on some residential streets have

taken to modifying their homes and renting out as many as five rooms, Chiarelli said. “We would like to limit it to three rooms in one house,” Chiarelli said, adding the regulations would also limit the landlord’s ability to modify the home to fit more tenants in. “Residents are concerned because once you add in extra kitchens and entrances, it’s unlikely that the property can return to single-family use,” Chiarelli said. In addition to restrictions on modifications, the city would need a maintenance

and parking plan in place before landlords could start renting. Chiarelli said to have their property listed by the city or the college as a place to rent, the landlord would have to make new tenants sign a code of conduct. “We used to have all kinds of complaints about the properties on Deerfield Drive, but Minto started making tenants sign a code of conduct and now there are no problems,” he said. “There’s student housing in Cityview and very few problems. The intent is to focus on problem areas, not simply where students live.”

Speakers offer ADHD advice for parents Forum explores ways of managing disorder Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - Parents of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have a lot on their plate, having to manage relationships with educators and medical professionals while at the same time seeking to deal with the symptoms of the behavioral disorder. A Nov. 7 public forum held at Ben Franklin Place brought those parents into contact with two professionals who specialize in ADHD, with the aim of teaching new strategies for managing common problems associated with the disorder. The gathering was hosted by the Center for Pediatric Excellence. Speaking at the forum were Dr. Judy van Stralen, an expert in pediatric ADHD who serves as staff pediatrician at CHEO (among other positions), and Dr. Kenny Handelman, an adjunct professor of psychiatry at the University of Western Ontario and author of Attention Difference Disorder. Learning to manage ADHD takes time and effort to learn what strategies work best, the doctors said, and medication is only part of the answer. Handelmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest in ADHD began while working with children as part of his psychiatry curriculum, which led to a startling realization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really clicked with kids who had ADHD,â&#x20AC;? said Handelman, who was later diagnosed with ADHD himself.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;No wonder I was getting along great with these kids - I had spent years not knowing.â&#x20AC;? Handelman sees ADHD not as an attention deficit, but an attention difference, hence the title of his book. Like any other physical disease â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as asthma or heart disease â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the symptoms of ADHD become heightened under certain circumstances. Learning to recognize these triggers and adapting oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s routine and environment to reduce the likelihood of triggering a response is key to managing ADHD, he said. While the stimulant Ritalin is the first and most wellknown medication used to treat ADHD, other medications, both short-acting and long-acting, have since joined the roster of drugs. When paired with a drug that works, both children and adults have a good starting point to begin enjoying a life with less distraction and hardship, said van Stralen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had young kids tell me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; once they started talking meds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy the dance party in their heads stopped,â&#x20AC;? said van Stralen. The difficulties in executive brain function experienced with ADHD lead to impairments in planning, organizing, inhibition and memory, she said, which leads to an impact on workplace and school performance, sports, and relationships. Treatment, consisting of medication and

lifestyle strategies, will improve performance in all these areas. Problems arise when traditional â&#x20AC;&#x153;time-honouredâ&#x20AC;? strategies are applied to kids with ADHD, said van Stralen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need specific parenting strategies. Parents arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the cause of ADHD, but they can be part of the solution.â&#x20AC;? Consistency between parents in addressing behavioral issues is important, as is implementing those parenting approaches without emotion or anger, said van Stralen, giving the example of a speeding driver pulled over by a police officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As parents, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use some of those rules of the speeder and the police officer. Unfortunately, many parents get frustrated.â&#x20AC;? In school, good strategies for kids with ADHD include sitting closer to the front of the class, listening to music while learning, being in a quiet room for tests, and having extra time for those tests. On the medication front, side effects need to be weighed against the drugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact on relieving ADHD symptoms, said van Stralen, with a net benefit for the child being the desired outcome. She warned against the generic version of the drug Concerta, of which studies have shown to be far less effective than originally assumed. Aging â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both during adolescence and adulthood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will have some affect on the effi-

cacy of medications, leading to the need to change doses or the type of drug. Van Stralen said that in cases where medication seems to not help, it is important to keep trying new ones, while trying second and third-line options, such as

changes to diet and bedtime routines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diet isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t everything, but it could be beneficial,â&#x20AC;? said van Stralen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think of including anything (to your strategy) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it could add up.â&#x20AC;? Foods high in sugar and ad-

ditives are known to aggravate ADHD behaviour, while a diet high in protein and omega-3 oils is known to be beneficial. Good sources of information for parents include their family doctor, the Learning Disability Association of Ottawa, special education resources in schools, and a number of websites devoted to the issue, including caddac. ca and caddra.ca

Nutcracker set to hit stage at Centrepointe, Shenkman Local dancers have chance to shine with Ballet Jorgen Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Arts - Dozens of local ballerinas will step into the spotlight with Ballet Jorgen’s production of The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition. The show opens at Centrepointe Theatre on Dec. 14 at 1 p.m. It will run until Dec. 17 with three shows taking place at the Shenkman Arts Centre. The Canadian adaptation of the classic Yuletide fairytale uses landscapes of the Group of Seven as backdrops and characters ranges from squirrels to frogs. Nepean resident Maddison Schmidt will perform the ballet for the second time. She will play the dragonfly this year. The 14-year-old has been dancing since she was two years old and said she is excited for the chance to showcase her talent. Normally she dances with Ottawa Centre Dance Schools, but Maddison said she got to meet new people and learn more about her craft through the experience. “It’s a lot of fun, everyone is really nice,” she said.

Aside from the two hours of rehearsal time the dancers get as a group, Maddison said she has the music on her iPod. “I practise in front of the mirror,” she said. For Elmvale Acres resident Brianna Nykilchyk, 10, her role as a frog is just another item to add to her busy schedule of ballet and highland dancing classes. Her mother, Anne Bertrand said it was the second year Brianna tried out. “She said she knew she had nailed it this time,” Bertrand said of the audition. “She was over the moon when she was chosen.” Brianna said she loves ballet and plans to do it professionally when she grows up. She has been dancing with Ottawa Centre Dance Schools since she was five years old. “It’s a lot of fun,” she said. Meghan Sangster, a student at Roberta Bondar Public School, will play the squirrel. She sees the Winnipeg Royal Ballet’s version of The Nutcracker every year. “I really love the music and it’s such a nice story,” she said. This is Meghan’s second

time dancing with Ballet Jorgen; she said she danced in their rendition of Swan Lake in April. “I love being on stage,” she said, adding she is excited for The Nutcracker’s opening night. Lexi Sorel, 11, a student at Good Shepherd School in Orléans, will be performing as a bear cub. It’s her first time performing with Ballet Jorgen. Lexi said she has been dancing with the Academy of Dance Arts and loves the smooth lines of ballet. “It looks so pretty with the arm movements and the pointed toes,” she said. There are 29 local girls performing in The Nutcracker this year and one boy. Participants range in age from eight to 14. Bertrand said she’s happy local kids are given a chance to work on their stage presence and technical skills with a real ballet company. “I know this experience will help her develop her confidence and performance skills,” Bertrand said. For more information on show times, visit www.balletjorgen.ca.

Galipeau named chairman of federal veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; committee Government canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play Santa Claus when it comes to assistance, OrlĂŠans MP says Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MP Royal Galipeau was elected as new chair of the standing committee on veterans affairs late last month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like members of the committee from both sides to set aside their partisan interests and to work collaboratively to better honour veterans,â&#x20AC;? Galipeau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And (to) see how best we can help the veterans who most need help, given the limited resources that the taxpayers pay.â&#x20AC;? The MP has been active with the OrlĂŠans branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, and branch president Jim Ferguson said in a press release it was a well-deserved appointment.

Galipeau had his first meetings with the committee scheduled throughout November, as they were set to work towards a new version of the Veterans Charter. Galipeau was hesitant to comment on specific changes he would like to see the committee make, having only attended his first meeting at the time of the interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to pre-empt the discussions I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard yet,â&#x20AC;? he said.

He said the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main job is to advise the government on what the government should provide for veterans, while working within a budget.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The federal taxpayers are not Santa Claus,â&#x20AC;? Galipeau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best way to help those who are most in need is for the functionaries, the bureaucrats, to do due diligence

to justify the needs. If we gave assistance to the level that everyone wants, we would end up having no assistance to anybody.â&#x20AC;? In October, veterans ombudsman Guy Parent released the report Improving the New Veterans Charter: the Actuarial Analysis. In an April report, Parent drew attention to the lack of financial support to disabled veterans over the age of 65, inadequacy of earnings-loss benefits for veterans transitioning to civil careers, and need for more accessibility to funds for disabled veterans struggling to return to the workforce. The current Veterans Charter offers lump sum payments, while disabled veterans were previously given a pension for life to sustain them. The Veterans Affairs committee had not yet released the new Veterans Charter as of press time.

New initiative looks to turn Orléans into cybersecurity hub State of the art research to take place in former Cumberland city hall brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - A new non-profit corporation has opened in Orléans, aiming to become the world’s most innovative cybersecurity organization. “I think the major problem Canadians have is we’ve been trading privacy for security,” said Tony Bailetti, the executive director of Venus Cybersecurity Corporation and a professor at Carleton University. He wants the new company to become a global leader in cybersecurity: the protection of digital information and computer networks. Venus is a partnership between the National Security Council, Communications Security Establishment Canada, the province, the city, and Telus. Each partner has invested either cash or in-kind services for the corporation to start up. Several partners have already committed to purchasing memberships, which al-

low them to benefit from Venus’s services. Venus will make money by selling memberships, providing access to individual project-based services and through conferences. More expensive memberships give the members opportunities to have influence over the direction that Venus takes, and projects that it works on. Others who want to be part of one-off projects will have to contribute financially to that project. Bailetti was the lead author of a research paper suggesting a group with this unique structure could be what Canada needs to become a leader in cybersecurity. In the paper, he suggests the not-for-profit structure could potentially reduce the time it takes to make decisions and boost resource sharing between the private, public and academic sectors. “I walked in with a crazy idea,” Bailetti said of making his model work right in

BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

Innes Ward Coun. Rainer Bloess was among those in attendance recently as Venus Cybersecurity Corporation announced it was setting up shop in Orléans Ottawa. The city’s contribution includes a $100,000 retrofit to the first floor of the former Cumberland city hall at 255 Centrum Blvd., next to the Shenkman Arts Centre. It’s hoped that the new CSEC building off Blair Road

and the new Venus corporation will have a domino effect that turns the east end into tech hub, said Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau. Orléans’ business community has had many discussions over the past year about creating a niche industry in the

said, and he plans to move to Orléans soon. “Orléans has a lot going for it,” Bailetti said. “It looks like a mini Palo Alto.” CUTTING EDGE

Bailetti said Venus will be focused on innovation and research and development, and won’t duplicate existing security processes or equipment. “All of this is state of the art,” he said of Venus’s plans. Currently, the city spends just over $2 million a year on its own cybersecurity to prevent hackering. Bailetti stressed how disastrous cyber attacks can be in the digital age. If a lab or department is encrypted, someone with the right knowledge could put a lock on the entire system and all its data. With many cars hosting internal computers, a knowledgeable hacker could “bring your car to a halt,” Bailetti said. “Best example I’ve got is Russia to Estonia,” he said, referencing one of the largest cyber attacks ever, which shut down many Estonian services. “They brought that country to a crawl.”

community. With CSEC and Venus, cybersecurity could be the niche they’ve been looking for. “This announcement will bring new and needed employment to our community,” said Orléans Coun. Bob Monette. Some work is already being carried out by 11 employees, with plans to expand to 25 staff by the new year, eventually reaching 35 employees. Mayor Jim Watson said the announcement will help the city balance the lack of jobs, especially skilled positions, in Orléans. The city’s contribution includes 15 months of free rent and the retrofit bill. The 255 Centrum Blvd. building is also home to several councillors and Galipeau’s office. “This sector is expected to grow exponentially in the next years,” said Galipeau, who joked that employees should have to make a commitment to live in Orléans. Bailetti said he was drawn to Orléans because of the feel of the area, the highly educated population and the bilingualism of the residents. Most of the current 11 employees live in the area, he

Wreath of waxed leaves brought a bit of joy for Mother Memories Mother was prone to do, but she paid him no heed. It was on a Saturday, a cold fall day, when she sent Audrey and me out to the yard. We were to bring in only those leaves which were perfectly formed, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a break in them, or a mark on them and were to be the largest and reddest we could find. We shoved the fallen leaves around the ground with the toes of our boots and ever so carefully gathered those we thought were exactly what Mother had asked for. She had given us a breadbasket to bring them in and she told us over and over again to handle them very carefully, laying one on top of the other so they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break. While Audrey and I were out in the yard picking through the leaves, which by that time in the fall were wet and soggy, Mother was in the kitchen melting the wax from the tops of the opened pickle and preserves jars on the Findlay Oval. She had spread out pages of the Renfrew Mercury on the bake table and Audrey and I were told to very, very carefully, lay out the leaves, making sure they were placed gently on a tea towel.

here Mother got the idea, no one knew. It certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t from Aunt Bertha on the next farm. She was far too practical to do something that took a lot of time and really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t amount to a hill of beans when it came to keeping food on the table. No, my sister Audrey said it was probably something she picked up when she lived in New York. Father of course, said he never heard of anything so crazy in his whole life. Fall had settled in and with the blasts of cold winter already closing in around us -- although snow yet to come -- Mother decided she would do something to keep the season alive as long as she could. The lawn at the side of the house still had plenty of fallen maple leaves on the ground and Mother thought it would give a nice touch to the table at meal times if she could just bring a bit of those rich fall colours indoors. She was going to wax the leaves and place them on a lace doily all around the spoon holder and the sugar bowl. A small honey pail held all the pieces of wax that came off the top of the preserve and pickle jars once they were opened and Mother would use it instead of buying a whole box of wax at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store. That alone should have impressed Father, but it did nothing of the sort. He still thought waxing leaves was right up there with trying to nurse geraniums through the winter once they had lost their bloom, which

Arrangement made plain old table look just grand Continued from page 21

Mother, as carefully as she would wipe a baby’s bottom, dabbed the leaves with a tea towel. She brought the pot over to the bake table and, picking up a leaf at a time by its stem, dipped it carefully into the melted wax. The leaf was then put onto yet another tea towel where Mother said anyone who touched it would do so at their own peril! Father came in for his supper, glanced at the waxed leaves, shook his head and headed for the wash basin. Not a word was mentioned about the waxed leaves over supper. But Mother rushed us through ‘redding’ up the kitchen that night and had Audrey wipe the red-checkered oilcloth twice to make sure it was good and dry. She then carefully, making a circle around the sugar bowl and spoon holder, laid out the waxed leaves. She overlapped them and Audrey and I thought we had the cleverest mother in all of Renfrew

County. With the simple placing of waxed leaves, Mother had turned our plain old table into something grand. Father complained there was no place to put the coal oil lamp. Mother settled that by pulling down the Coleman lamp that hung over the table and was used only when we

Of course any wax that was left over was put aside to set and then cut into blocks and again stored in the little honey pail to use when Mother again put down preserves and pickles. Nothing was wasted. Audrey and I thought the

leaf display was lovely and it stayed there the whole week. Audrey said it was the steady throbbing heat of the Findlay Oval, Father said they had just died a natural death, but by the next Saturday, the leaves had started to curl and after Emerson dropped several spoons from the spoon holder, he said accidently, the leaves looked the worst for wear. It was with great reluctance the next Saturday morning, what was left of the leaves was gathered up and tossed into the cook stove. Father said it was time. After all, that night it was our turn to host the Saturday night house party and the old pine table was needed for euchre. A red geranium, which had seen better days, took the place of the wreath of wax leaves. It and the waxed leaves was Mother’s way of trying desperately to bring a bit of cheer to an old log house that for generations had known nothing more than a life lived in the simplest of ways.

Bryce Desrochers, 11, is all smiles at the official launch of the Miracle League of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s park on Nov. 9 at Place dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;OrlĂŠans. Bryceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents initiated the project so he could have a local, accessible place to play baseball with his friends. ing the summer.â&#x20AC;? Volunteer Rosemary Thompson said Notre-Dame des Champs was one of the least-used parks in the city, and was along a transit line, so it made for a good fit. The city is supporting the project through the community partnership major capital

program, and will fund 50 per cent of the $900,000 cost. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in the works for over a year, and officially launched on Nov. 9 at Place dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;OrlĂŠans. At the launch, Friends of Mer Bleue donated $100,000, from local Rotary Club members donated $30,000 and

Champions of Ottawa Baseball gave $15,000. Once the park is up and running the Miracle League of Ottawa will mange the park in a partnership with the city. The league will also run a â&#x20AC;&#x153;buddy league,â&#x20AC;? which will match children with disabilities with able-bodied children

Sports - A new playground and park, the first of its kind in Canada, will be built at NotreDame des Champs Park. The park will include a special baseball diamond, with rubberized flooring instead of grass, and extra-wide dugout and handicapped washrooms to allow children with physical handicaps to play. It was inspired by a local OrlĂŠans family, Rolly and Michelle Desrochers and their son, Bryce, 11. Bryce has cerebral palsy, so when his parents heard about the Miracle League accessible baseball diamonds and sports teams that run in the United States, a few calls were made.

IN THE MATTER OF THE ONTARIO HERITAGE ACT

IN THE MATTER OF THE ONTARIO HERITAGE ACT

Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on November 13, 2013 established its intention to designate the Alexander Fleck House, 593 Laurier Avenue West under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value.

Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on November 13, 2013 established its intention to designate the St. Charles Church, 135 Barrette Street, under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value.

Description of the Property The Alexander Fleck House is a two-and-a-half storey red brick residential building constructed in 1902 with a later two-storey addition on the western elevation. It is located at 593 Laurier Avenue West, at the corner of Laurier and Bronson Avenues, just outside the western border of Centretown in the City of Ottawa.

Description of Property St. Charles Church, 135 Barrette Street, constructed in 1908, is a large, brick clad wooden Roman Catholic Church. It is located between Beechwood Avenue and Barrette Street in Ottawa’s Vanier neighbourhood.

Heritage Value The Alexander Fleck House’s cultural heritage value is demonstrated through its architectural significance as an excellent example of a Queen Anne Revival style house with a high degree of craftsmanship, its association with Alexander Fleck Jr. and the Fleck family, as well as its character as a community landmark. The house is valuable as an excellent example of the Queen Anne Revival style which was popular from the 1880s to 1910. The house, with its steeply-pitched, cross-gable roof with tall chimneys, projecting bays, stone porch with gabled roof and wood columns, use of multiple materials and its geometric and floriated motifs is typical of the Queen Anne Revival style. Excellent craftsmanship can be seen in the complex roof lines and massing, the intricate brick and stone work, as well as the decorative stained glass. Historical value is found in the building’s association with Alexander Fleck Jr. who owned and operated Alexander Fleck Limited, Vulcan Iron Works on Wellington Street in the late 19th and early 20th century. The general machine shop and foundry which was founded by Fleck’s father contributed to a number of important local projects such as the Cornwall Canal and Ottawa’s street rail system. They held the castings contract for the Canada Atlantic Railway and manufactured machinery for the saw and paper mill industries. Alexander Jr. lived in this house from the time it was constructed in 1902 until his death in 1923. His widow, Maud Fleck, stayed in the house until 1940. The Alexander Fleck house has contextual value as a neighbourhood landmark for its location at the corner of Laurier and Bronson Avenues and its prominent location on a limestone ridge.

Designed by Québec architect Charles Brodeur, St. Charles Church is a good example of the Québec Neoclassical style. Neoclassicism was popular in Canada from 1800 until 1860 but churches continued to be built in this style in Québec and French-speaking Parishes outside of Québec into the 20th century. Typical of the style, St. Charles Church has a smooth, symmetrical façade and a simple, cruciform plan. It features a symmetrical fenestration pattern, and a projecting entrance tower topped by a wooden belfry and flanked by two tower like corner pilasters topped with smaller belfries. St. Charles Church has historical value for its association with the Francophone Catholic community in Ottawa. The congregation was formed in 1908 in response to demands by the local Catholic community who thought that other Francophone churches in Ottawa were too far away from Vanier. In 1912, Father François-Xavier Barrette was appointed Parish Priest and under his guidance, the church quickly became the centre of the Francophone Catholic community in Vanier. In 1926, Barrette and a small group of civil servants formed the Order of Jacques Cartier, an all male secret society intended to protect and promote Francophone Catholic values. It grew rapidly in the first half of the 20th century and is credited with the development of many Francophone organizations including Club Richelieu International, a service club that is still active today. The Order of Jacques Cartier was dissolved in 1965, as a result of the societal changes prompted by the Quiet Revolution. The location of St. Charles Church along the curve of Beechwood Avenue and its tower topped with a blue neon cross make it a prominent local landmark. It has contextual value as it contributes to the distinctive French Canadian identity in the Vanier community.

This letter must be received by the Clerk of the City of Ottawa either by registered mail or personally delivered within 30 days of the publication of this notice.

Heritage Value The cultural heritage value of St. Charles Church lies in it being a good example of the Québec Neoclassical style, its important role in the Francophone Catholic community and in its contextual value as a landmark in Vanier.

Zoning Study on Local Shops and Services in Residential Neighbourhoods Is there a corner store or shop in your neighbourhood?

ROUTES AVAILABLE! We’re looking for Carriers to deliver our newspaper!

Would it be convenient to have a neighbourhood store providing goods and services in your community?

Online questionnaire We want to hear your views on this important zoning study that will determine appropriate locations for local commercial zoning within existing residential neighbourhoods. Existing small shops, such as convenience stores, barbers, laundromats, florists and cafés, are often located in residential areas. Current zoning may not permit these businesses beyond what currently exists. This study will consider rezoning these sites, where appropriate, to permit the businesses to continue to contribute to their community. The study will also consider possible new locations for, scale of, and provisions for, neighbourhood-focused commercial uses that might fall between a home-based business and a full-fledged retail store. You are encouraged to visit the website at ottawa.ca/neighbourhoodstores for more information, and to provide your views through an online questionnaire from November 21, 2013 to January 31, 2014. Your participation is an integral part of this study.

Microchips: helping return pets to owners when the unthinkable happens

Hi my name is Brandy. I was born on April 13, 2013 so I am still little. I was born in the back seat of a car with my five brothers and sisters. My mom was a Cocker Spaniel and my dad was a Miniature Poodle so they tell me I am a Cockapoo. Funny name. You probably can’t tell in the newspaper but I am Chocolate Brown. My new dad is a senior and he just turned 81 today. He takes really good care of me and walks me in the neighbourhood twice a day. When my sisters come home from work they take me on long walks and I meet lots of other people and dogs. My best friend is Rosco. I play and chase Rosco and he chases me. I like playing fetch, and I play a lot. I am really happy and I have a really good home. They love me so much that they say they spoil me. It’s ok I give them lost of love too.... 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 30

Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, ensuring the rapid return of the lost pet. While tags may be lost from time to time, external identification such as these are still important as a quick “visual” means of identifying your pet. The Ottawa Humane Society runs microchip clinics which you can register for by calling 613-7253166 ext. 221 or e-mail microchip@ ottawahumane.ca. Upcoming clinics will take place November 24

from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Microchipping you pet with the OHS costs $50 ($25 for each additional pet). In the City of Ottawa, cats and dogs must be registered (also known as licensing). Microchips reduce the cost of registration. All proceeds will benefit the animals at the OHS. Animals should be in a carrier or on a leash. Owners should bring vaccination records and one piece of photo ID (for example, driver’s licence).

If your pet goes missing this winter, what are the chances it will find its way home? The Ottawa Humane Society is urging animal owners to take precautions by ensuring that if their dog or cat becomes lost, it has the best possible chance of a safe return — by implanting a grain-sized microchip offering permanent, lifelong identification. Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time.

Information Session First Avenue Road, Sewer and Watermain Rehabilitation Tuesday, December 3, 2013 6 to 8 p.m. Glebe Collegiate Institute 212 Glebe Avenue, Cafeteria Ottawa, ON The City of Ottawa invites you to an information session regarding the proposed First Avenue Road, Sewer and Watermain Rehabilitation that is anticipated to commence in 2014. At the meeting, design drawings for the project will be on display for public review and comment. City staff, the project consultant and representatives from the office of Councilor David Chernushenko will be on hand to discuss the project and respond to questions. The City of Ottawa has identified the requirement for replacement of underground infrastructure in this area due to their age and/or condition. Proposed construction work would install a new 203 mm diameter watermain from Bronson Avenue to O’Connor Street and on Percy Street from Glebe Avenue to Second Avenue to replace the existing watermain that was originally installed, circa 1923. A new combined sanitary and storm sewer would also be replaced on First Avenue, from Bronson Avenue to Percy Street that was installed circa 1922. There is also a proposed plan to repair the existing sanitary sewer between Bank Street and O’Connor Street. New sidewalks and road work (including a westbound cycling lane) from Bronson Avenue to O’Connor Street are also being proposed. Construction is anticipated to commence in 2014 and would be completed by the end of the construction season in 2015. Additional information about the project is available on ottawa.ca.

700 Canadians Own Property in Ecuador! WHY? “Because we can!” responds Mario Rochefort, who recently purchased one of the 1600 home sites from the Canadian company HolaEcuador. “With prices like that we can finally afford a property in the south.” “Prices start at $15,000 for a lot and $55,000 for a nice little beach house. For $120,000 you can own a luxurious home that would easily cost $300,000 or more in Canada.” “It’s an ecological Canadian project, with all the amenities included.

Angela Caniniti of the Nepean Skating Club gets some one-on-one pointers from former world champion figure skater Kurt Browning at the Nepean Sportsplex on Nov. 13.

Sports - Kurt Browning spins, swirls and then stops on a dime. At 47, the four-time world figure skating champion still cuts a dapper figure on the ice. Browning was at the Nepean Sportsplex on Nov. 13 for a full day of on-ice instruction hosted by the Nepean Skating Club. During a break, he said he misses some of the jumps he used to complete and listens closely to how his body

feels before hitting the ice. “It’s still a love affair (with skating),” Browning said. “It still feels like we’re dating.” Browning has two sons, ages six and 10, but he’s not sure if they’ll follow in their father’s precise footsteps. “The 10-year-old (Gabriel) likes to teach and the six-yearold (Dillon) might be a skater,” he said. Having Browning in the Sportsplex was an obvious thrill for some of the parents who watched their kids learning from a champion, but the young skaters know Brown-

ing too, both from his work on CBC’s Battle of the Blades and his appearances in ice shows, which continue to this day with Stars on Ice. All of Browning’s greatest performances are also just a mouse click away. “They know me from YouTube,” Browning said of the young skaters on the Sportsplex ice. Recently, Browning was also the focus of an episode of Walk the Walk, a TV series which follows people who have been inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame.
