EMC news - What started as a simple crosswalk near Manotick’s new seniors’ residence has blossomed into a full-fledged signalized intersection - for five times the cost. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt had requested that $50,000 be included in the city’s 2013 budget to install a pedestrian crosswalk near the Dickinson Street intersection on Bridge St., primarily to provide safe crossing for seniors living at a nearby residence currently under construction. Developer Joe Princiotta promised another $50,000 for the project. But when the 2013 budget was drafted, staff added $500,000 to the project’s funding envelope in case traffic engineers felt a full traffic light was warranted instead. At the time, Moffatt said it likely wasn’t. Now staff are going ahead with the more complex plan, and are combining it with a tender for the nearby Van Vliet Road extension that should begin construction this spring. The village has been clamoring for a signalized intersection to allow west-bound lefthand turns onto Bridge for more than 30 years. The Van Vliet connection’s approval last fall finally met that need, but now with no fight at all, a second complete signalized intersection has been dropped into residents’ laps as well. “We’ve migrated from something that was simple and straightforward to something that’s more complicated and costly,” said Manotick Village Community Association president Klaus Beltzner. He said he supports the inter-

section, although it would not be his first priority. “There are so many locations where there’s a traffic light needed,” he said. “If I had one choice of where to put it, it wouldn’t be there. But given all the other information, I support it.” Moffatt said staff decided to pursue the more costly option for several reasons, including pedestrian safety. “With pedestrian crosswalks, not everyone knows how to use them,” Moffatt said. “We want to make it as easy as possible for them to cross the street.” Another problem arose from placing the crosswalk on the west side of Dickinson, which could create more cut-through traffic in front of Watson’s Mill because drivers could turn left unencumbered when the crosswalk was engaged. A fully signalized intersection is warranted as well with the anticipation of traffic in and out of the new seniors’ residence, and planned development at the city’s nearby Clapp Lane property, Beltzner said. The project will now include crosswalks in every direction. It will also realign Dickinson Street and Dickinson Circle and designate left hand turn lanes in each direction. At a community association meeting on Jan. 16, Beltzner and fellow member Ted Ross pushed for a public meeting on the project, even though it cannot be cancelled and will go to tender quickly. The men argued that residents can still have input into the intersection’s synchronization and provide feedback on reducing cut-through temptations around Dickinson Square. “The cost of this deserves a public meeting,” Ross said. “I have concerns about it. There are probably people on Dickinson Street that will be concerned about it.” Moffatt said he will plan a meeting as soon as possible. Watch for details.

Bridging the gap at Andy Shields Emma Jackson

EMC news - Soccer parents and Coun. Doug Thompson are bridging a big gap in Greely’s Andy Shields Park to make some of the area’s sports fields more accessible. A steel footbridge will be installed this spring over the creek that separates the parking lot off Old Prescott Road

from several soccer and baseball fields in the southwest corner of the large sports facility. Without a bridge, soccer players and their parents have to follow a series of paths down to a further bridge and then walk back to the field they first parked beside. “There are balls flying all over the place,” Thompson said. “It’s always busy.”

He said some soccer families even walk down Old Prescott and cross the drainage ditch to access the farthest field, which he said is “really unsafe.” The 2.4 metre-wide bridge will cost about $30,000 and will be split between the city and South Nation Conservation Authority. Thompson expects the bridge to be installed sometime in the spring.

Residents signal concern over Greely antenna Stricter policy needed, one resident says Emma Jackson

EMC news - A telecommunications antenna has been approved for a site near the corner of Sale Barn Road and Bank Street in Greely, despite some residents’ concerns that the process didn’t allow for enough consultation. The city has approved a request from Rogers Communi-

cations to build a new antenna at 1536 Sale Barn Rd. that would stand approximately 70 metres tall northwest of the Bank Street intersection. The site is south of the Greely boundary and surrounded by agricultural, rural residential and village residential lands. Industry Canada regulates the location of cell phone towers, but encourages mu-

nicipalities to develop their own policies regarding public consultation and feedback. Last March, the city adopted a set of regulations that closely follow Industry Canada’s default consultation guidelines: relevant councillors, technical agencies, community groups and property owners within three times the height of the proposed structure must be notified of the

proposal, and the applicant must address relevant concerns through written responses or a public consultation. According to Coun. Doug Thompson’s assistant Nick Randall, 10 property owners fell within the prescribed 210 metre radius, and were notified by letter in October. Four of them showed up at the public consultation on Nov. 7, mostly with health concerns. Rogers confirmed that the tower meets the safety requirements for radio towers

set out by Health Canada, and on Dec. 4 city staff informed Industry Canada of their approval. “Staff are satisfied that all reasonable and relevant concerns raised during public consultation have been adequately addressed by the proponent,� wrote city staff Melanie Gervais in the authority report. While city staff were satisfied, some residents - a few who don’t even live in Greely - think the process was just for show. “This was a done deal before they put any work into this effort with the citizens,� said Cheryl Doran, a Blossom Park resident who heard about the tower from friends in Greely. She said the lease was signed in September before consultations were held, and notifications to nearby residents were addressed to “the occupant� - effectively making them look like junk mail. Doran has been looking into the city’s policy and is working for change across the region. “I’m finding out that this policy is horrible,� Doran said. Her biggest issue lies in potential health risks from “radiation� from the nearby towers. While addressing such

health concerns falls to Health Canada, Doran wants the city to dictate stricter guidelines for tower locations. “I want to see the policy increased to be a minimum of 500 metres from any residential area,� she said. “Ultimately that’s what I’m looking for.� Bruce Brayman, president of the Greely Community Association, welcomed a contingent of about 20 people to the group’s monthly meeting on Jan. 9. He said the association won’t take a stand on the issue because the tower could benefit as many people as it annoys. “We have a hard time politically because the tower may be good for half of Greely,� Brayman said. Having a cell tower so close to the village could likely strengthen wireless signals for residents. He admitted, however, that cell towers are problematic in rural areas simply because they’re more noticeable. “In the city they hide these towers on buildings, behind buildings, but in the country its wide open spaces and it’s an eyesore,� he said. He noted that another, shorter antenna was recently installed near Coker Street in Greely without any backlash. Rogers could not be reached for comment before deadline.

A commercial operator heads toward the mouth of the Rideau Canal in downtown Otaawa. Lockage fees for recreational and commercial canal users could triple if a new Parks Canada fee proposal is approved. Members of the public can offer feedback until Feb. 18.

Parks Canada increasing user fees for national sites, parks, canals Rideau lockage fees could triple Emma Jackson

EMC news - Parks Canada is looking for public feedback on a new fee structure that could triple lockage fees on the Rideau Canal. On Jan. 11, the federal department announced a set of new user fees that would

Ottawa Valley Tours

replace prices frozen since 2008. The proposed changes include standardized fees for mooring, facility rentals, programming and using the country’s canal systems. Currently, it costs $0.90 per foot for a boat to travel both ways through a lock on the Rideau Canal, or $1.60 per

foot for a day pass. A seasonal pass is $8.80 per foot. The new fee structure could scrap seasonal and day passes – although backlash has prompted Parks Canada to consider developing similar products – and adopt a peruse payment structure that requires boaters to buy individual tickets to travel through the locks. Tickets cost $0.30 per foot, and boaters need at least two tickets to go through any lock

in one direction. It takes two tickets to pass a low-elevation single lock and three to pass a single or multi-lock chamber at medium elevation. It will cost four tickets to pass through any multi-lock chamber at high elevation. That means owners of a 25foot boat would be charged $7.50 per ticket, and would be charged between $15 and $30 each time they go through a lockstation. To travel through all 23 locks between Ottawa

think of anything that’s a better value.” Munson said the proposed fees, particularly for canals, will deter Canadians from using them, not encourage them. “This is just going to drain the canal of boaters and thus will hurt our local economy,” said Munson, who feels so strongly about the waterway his Senate designation is listed as serving Ottawa-Rideau Canal. “It’s one thing to say it’s going to help out the department and its deficit, but that’s a simplistic approach. What does it do for the local economy from here to Kingston? This is a lifeline between two historic cities.” According to Parks Canada, the department has over 3,300 fees for services like park and site entry, camping, interpretive programs, boat lockage and facility rentals. Revenues are invested in the sites to help pay for the services and facilities that visitors use. However, the expense of providing services to visitors continues to increase as a result of higher energy and other operational costs, a Parks Canada statement said. Parks Canada is proposing that future fee adjustments take place in accordance with the consumer price index “in order to respond to annual inflationary operational costs.” “Most fees will be limited to an adjustment not exceeding the two-year cumulative percentage of the average consumer price index,” the statement said. “This would occur in two-year intervals thereafter, beginning in 2013.” A new fee structure would apply for recreational users beginning April 1, 2013. New fees for commercial operators would apply in April 2014. Full details can be found at Members of the public can email or mail their feedback to Parks Canada before Feb. 18.




and Kingston and back would cost $975 in tickets. At the current rates, a 25foot boat can do the same trip with a six-day pass for the flat rate of $126.25. Parks Canada’s vice president of visitor experiences Andrew Campbell said boaters and commercial operators have already made it clear that the seasonal and six-day passes are useful, and Parks Canada was set to announce similar discount products after this newspaper’s press time. Campbell said the proposed fee hikes are necessary to offset the $18.7 million taxpayers are shelling out every year just to operate boating services on Canada’s canals. Senator Jim Munson, however, said taxpayers should bear some burden for the treasures under Parks Canada’s charge, because they are for all Canadians to use. “Parks were created and built for Canadians to enjoy the beauty of their country,” he said. “And that meant all Canadians. As time has moved on, whether it is campground sites or golf courses in national parks, the prices are now out of the range of ordinary Canadians. They’re making it difficult for ordinary Canadians to see our own country.” Munson said he understands and supports the need to charge a reasonable fee to use the sites, but said it has to be kept within reason - and if the shortfall comes out of the taxpayer’s pocket, so be it. “There are a lot of things that I’m paying for here as a taxpayer that I don’t get a benefit from,” he said. “These are public lands ... that should be accessible to the entire public.” Campbell said national historic sites will still only cost $10 per adult to visit – a minor fee compared to other leisure activities. “You can’t go to a movie for $10,” Campbell said. “For a great day out its hard to

Hair-raising experience grants wishes for local kids Emma Jackson

EMC news - Change your â&#x20AC;&#x2122;do or go blue: thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the challenge for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Make a Wish Foundation fundraiser for kids with life-threatening illnesses. On Saturday, Feb. 2, Vernon resident Kim Sheldrick will host her fifth annual Metcalfe fundraiser for the eastern Ontario chapter of the national charity at the Metcalfe Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Den. Over the last four years her event has raised more than $20,000 to provide wishes for local children dealing with terminal or chronic diseases. The money has sent a Metcalfe girl to England and an Osgoode boy on a Disney cruise. One Metcalfe girl even got to meet Justin Bieber. Sheldrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Michael Bates, a Grade 8 student at Metcalfe Public School, is taking part for the sixth time

this year. His first time, he and his mother travelled to the Rideau Centre downtown to a hairdresser, and Sheldrick immediately thought the south Ottawa community needed a more convenient venue. The following year she launched the Metcalfe event at the Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Den. This year Michael is dyeing his hair blue for three weeks before going bald on Feb. 2. Sheldrick expects about 10 people to dye or shave their hair in Metcalfe, and hopes to raise $10,000 between pledges and donations from community groups like the Lions and Kiwanis. Part of the fundraising will also come from the annual Crazy Hair Day at Metcalfe Public School on Friday, Feb. 1. Students can pay $2 to wear their hair however they like. Sheldrick said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping other area schools will

The Eastern Ontario chapter has rebranded its event this year, leaving the annual Hair Masscares event behind in favour of its new Hairaiser format. The premise is similar collect pledges to dye or shave your hair - but the branding,

logo and even the colour of the dye are more unique to the eastern Ontario chapter. The Hair Massacre event was developed in Alberta, and eastern Ontario marketing director Angela Swann said the chapter wanted to assert its individuality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to revamp it to make it more in tune and take a little bit more ownership for our eastern Ontario chapter,â&#x20AC;?

Swann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to add a new flavour that gets people riled up.â&#x20AC;? Once change is the shift to blue dye instead of pink, in keeping with the local chapterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brand. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also broadening its reach, allowing participants to simply cut or style their hair if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel brave enough to dye it blue or shave it off.

Swann said every effort will be made to keep any money in the community that raised it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have our eastern Ontario territory, but we try to one-up that by trying to associate (the money) with a really local kid if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an event in that community,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Local singing sensation to judge Greely Idol

EMC news - For budding stars in south Ottawa, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll face one of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest singing celebrities when they take the stage on Jan. 26. Over the Rainbow finalist Stephanie La Rochelle, a Greely native, will be one of three judges at the seventh annual Greely Idol competition during the Greely Winter Carnival next weekend. The 18-year-old once competed at Greely Idol herself, and said she is excited to come back. The weird part, she said, will be judging others instead of being on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to being judged myself,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of experience on (Over the Rainbow) so I can bring what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned and give it to the kids.â&#x20AC;? The St. Mark Catholic High School graduate was one of 10 young women who competed in the fall to become Mirvishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dorothy in its production of Wizard of Oz in Toronto. The competition was broadcast weekly on CBC, and every week national audiences voted for their favourite Dorothy until only one was left. La Rochelle was the runner up. Parkway Road Pentecostal Church pastor Pamela Dans has organized and hosted the

Greely Idol singing competition since the church began sponsoring the event seven years ago. She said it made sense to invite La Rochelle to judge, since the teen has become a local celebrity since her return to Ottawa. La Rochelle has been invited to sing and talk at schools and community events across the city, and even a few city council meetings. Participating in an event in her own village is extra special, Dans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that wherever she goes, people are just excited that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there,â&#x20AC;? Dans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is our local celebrity.â&#x20AC;? However, La Rochelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success last fall - and seemingly inevitable success in the future - shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intimidate the youth who are preparing to perform in front of her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing to participate in our community carnival demonstrates that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still humble and very natural, and wants to be real with people,â&#x20AC;? Dans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what sets her apart.â&#x20AC;? On Saturday, Jan. 26 up to 30 kids and teens can audition for a spot in the finals on Sunday. Performers must register in advance for the junior category (ages seven to 12) and the senior category (13 to 18) at Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auditions will



Stephanie La Rochelle will be a guest judge at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greely Idol on Jan. 26 and 27. begin at 1 p.m. in the Greely Community Centre. The top 10 performers will be invited back for finals on Sunday afternoon, where all finalists will take home part of a cash prize. First place winners in both categories will win a CD recording session with Blue Bear Studio, as well as a photo shoot. Dans said competitors should practice in front of a mirror and also in front of friends or family. They should also make sure they have â&#x20AC;&#x153;the whole package.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the most impor-

tant things is to put all their natural talent and enthusiasm into their audition,â&#x20AC;? she said, suggesting dance moves and a co-ordinated outfit that supports their on-stage persona. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to set them apart. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the vocals.â&#x20AC;? La Rochelle, who spent every week last fall preparing tirelessly for her next appearance on Over the Rainbow, said practice makes perfect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We practiced day and night for the whole week,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you believe in yourself and give it your all you can go far.â&#x20AC;?

The Greely Winter Carnival begins on Wednesday, Jan. 23 with a skating party and spaghetti dinner at the Greely community centre hosted by the Greely Brownies. Between 6 and 8 p.m. families are invited to enjoy a night skate on the community rink before warming up with a plate of pasta or a bowl of chili. Admission is $25 per family. On Thursday, Jan. 24 the Texas Holdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;em poker night begins at 7 p.m., for $20 per person. Sign up begins at 6 p.m. On Friday the community centre will be reserved for the Teeny Bopper Dance between 5:30 and 8:30 p.m., with an admission of $5 per child. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s packed schedule

begins with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Greely Firefighters between 8:30 and 11 a.m. From there, families can enjoy a magic show at 11 a.m. and take a sleigh ride between 1 and 3 p.m. Meanwhile, teams will be busy building their snow sculptures outside the community centre, which will continue on Sunday. On Saturday night, a ticket to the carnivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catered dinner and comedy show is $40 per person. Tickets to just the show are $20. On Sunday, the Greely Lions will host a family brunch beginning at 10 a.m., and Radical Science will perform at noon.

Jumping off the development merry-go-round


he challenges posed by development projects popping up across the city call for innovative responses, which is exactly what one Ottawa community association is doing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something other community groups would be wise to take a long, hard look at as well. The idea, proposed by the Ottawa South Community Association, is to recruit members who have expertise

in land-use planning, architecture development and construction on the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning and development review committee, known as OSWatch. The committee is forced to deal with complex development applications, relying on a dozen or so members who may not have the necessary expertise or experience to craft a position on such proposals. This forces the committee to spend most of its energy

trying to understand and later fight unwanted applications instead of being proactive and encouraging desired development. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a familiar problem for the dozens of community associations across Ottawa and the result is costly and unproductive. The process begins with a development application. If community members donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the proposed building, a number of meetings are held where the developer

outlines its plans, followed by a response â&#x20AC;&#x201C; usually negative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from area residents. If the political pressure is strong enough, the ward councillor fights the application, sometimes over the objections of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning staff. If city council rejects the application, the developer has the option of appealing to the Ontario Municipal Board. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the real fun starts. The city doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly

have a stellar record opposing development supported by its own staff before the OMB. Case in point: the 2011 decision by the OMB to expand the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urban boundary by 850 hectares, over the objections of council and at the cost of hundreds of thousand of dollars in legal fees. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position was at odds with its planning staff. Nobody enjoys the ride on this merry-go-round â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not

the city, the residents and not the developers, even if they ultimately win their case at the OMB. Wasted time. Wasted money. Old Ottawa South is hoping to get off this topsy-turvy ride and create a proactive development review process. By working with developers instead of automatically pegging them as the enemy, both parties can avoid many of the conflicts that often end up in the laps of the OMB. Compromise is often required, and that can only come following good communication and intelligent analysis.


Dreaming of a better Sparks Street CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


parks Street looks pretty bedraggled these days. Mind you, some of that is just the way winter works on our city. The snow piles up, then it melts, revealing all of yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s litter and dirt. But of course litter is not all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bothering Sparks Street, a place that has never lived up to the high expectations placed on it when it opened as a pedestrian mall in 1966. Not that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a pleasant place at times. In the warm weather, at lunch hour, hundreds of people enjoy the sun and the stroll and visiting with their friends. Tourists, down from Parliament Hill, grab a coffee or a souvenir. But, as many observers have noted over the years, the place is silent as a tomb after six oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock and more or less deserted on weekends. What happened? Well, the federal government happened. The government owns much of the real estate along Sparks and has not been helpful to merchants and would-be developers. At any given time, a number of merchants will have been displaced while Public Works renovates something or other. Even the most ardent planning advocate must be wondering if Sparks Street might have been better off with unbridled development. The other thing that happened was the Rideau Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening in 1983. Not that Sparks Street was exactly thriving before that, but it thrived even less afterwards. Important merchants decamped for the new shopping centre and shoppers were attracted away from Sparks Street. After that grew the idea that Sparks Street needed fixing. Various plans were implement-

ed, most of them seeming to involve moving planters around. None of them worked. And the attempt to lure tourists to Sparks Street has had an unintended consequence. Now the complaint is that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anything on the street that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aimed at tourists. The latest proposal, one not put forward as a solution but as something worth trying, is to put a zip line, a kind of glorified rope slide, somewhere on the mall to attract thrill-seekers. Well, it might do that. But if it succeeds it will just bring zip line enthusiasts to the mall. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll zip and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go home, unless there is something else to attract their attention. The same goes for another perennial dream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a Sparks Street casino. People will come to the casino, stay in it and go home. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing for Sparks Street in that. The idea is not just to attract thrill-seekers and tourists to Sparks Street, but to attract people who live here, people who could decide to come downtown to shop instead of going to their nearest mall, who might decide to eat on Sparks rather than in the ByWard Market, who might want to hang out on a street where there is no traffic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe this is impossible to achieve, yet it has been impossible to achieve for 46 years. The only thing that will save Sparks Street is a permanent constituency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in other words, more people living downtown. And should there be apartments where there were once dark offices, those who live there would flock to Sparks Street, if it was open at night and if there were stores and clubs and restaurants of quality. These in turn might attract people who live away from the core. In the meantime, new options will be presented for your consideration. Markets and zip lines and new logos and more planters. Whatever option is chosen, one of them should not be reopening Sparks Street to traffic. Great cities all over the world have created pedestrian-friendly areas and many of them work really well. Cities that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have such areas wish they did. We would too.

Community reps gear up for planning review First time Federation of Citizens Associations invited to participate in Official Plan review Laura Mueller

EMC news - How can we create a more liveable Ottawa? That’s the theme of an upcoming public consultation on how to rewrite the city’s Official Plan and the rest of its master plans for transportation, infrastructure, cycling and pedestrians –documents that set the stage for Ottawa’s development. The city is holding its first public meeting about the review on Jan. 29, but community association representatives got a head start on the issue when about 40 of them gathered for a brainstorming session at the Overbrook Community Centre on Jan. 10. The session was hosted by the Federation of Citizens Associations, a citywide group that represents a number of community associations. For the first time, the city invited the federation to send two representatives to sit on one of three consultation panels that will undertake the in-depth consultation and review of the plans. “There was no such community panel in previous run-

ence over that,” added Gary Sealey, a federation member from the Kanata-Beaverbrook Community Association. From infill to traffic congestion to more nebulous concepts like density targets and sustainability benchmarks, participants covered off what they see as the building blocks for a more liveable city.

Infill was a common concern. Anna Cuylits from Old Ottawa South said her community would like to see rules that have more teeth with regards to things like building setbacks and height. In Old Ottawa South, one of the main concerns will be pushing for the Alta Vista transportation corridor to be

completely removed from transportation plans. The corridor is a proposed road linking Lees Avenue to Ottawa Hospital’s General Campus. There was also some interest from John Verbaas of Action Sandy Hill in “making growth pay for itself” – finding ways for development charges to cover the true cost of build-

ing infrastructure needed to support sprawling suburbs. Rural participants were concerned about how the city defines a “complete rural village.” “There’s an implication that they are incomplete,” said Ted Ross of the Manotick Village Community Association. No matter what actually ends up in the Official Plan and master plans, it will be important to ensure those ideas are put into practice. To that end, several community representatives suggested a need for a report card to measure the success or failure of the initiatives in the plans. Representatives from the federation will join the community panel; other panels will include a sponsors’ panel for the city councillors leading the project, as well as a panel for the development industry. The draft Official Plan amendments should be presented to the city’s planning committee in June. More public consultation will follow, with draft approval of the Official Plan itself expected in October. Council expects to adopt the updated Official Plan and the revised master plans for transportation, infrastructure, pedestrians and cycling in December of 2013 or January of 2014. R0011870546

More Ontario women give birth later in life: CHEO Staff

EMC news - More women in Ontario are giving birth later in life, according to a new report from Better Outcomes Registry and Network (BORN) Ontario. BORN Ontario is a provincial program delivered by the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) with the responsibility of putting information tools in the hands of doctors, nurses and other health care providers to help improve care for mother and babies. On Jan. 17 BORN released its perinatal health indicators for Ontario 2012 report, indicating an increase in the rate of live birth by Ontario women aged between 35 to 49 from 2006 to 2010.

The report shows that 22 per cent of live births are to women aged 35 to 49, about five per cent higher than the rest of Canada. Dr. Mark Walker, a highrisk obstetrician at the Ottawa Hospital said the increase in advanced maternal age is concerning as fertility is decreased in this period and pregnancies are more likely to be high risk. The report, developed as a companion to a recent national perinatal report, provides an overview of eight key perinatal health indicators for the province of Ontario between 2006 and 2010. Also among the report’s findings, age-specific live birth rates for women aged 20 and younger were consistently lower in Ontario when compared to the rest of

Canada, while multiple birth rates were slightly higher. Other categories covered in the report are: fetal mortality, small for gestational age, large gestational age, preterm birth and post-term birth. “By providing quality information to health care providers, policy makers and researchers, we can help improve health outcomes for mothers and children in our province, and help babies get their best start to lifelong health,” said Mari Teitelbaum, director of BORN Ontario. BORN is Ontario’s pregnancy, birth and childhood registry and network. BORN Ontario manages an advanced database that delivers reliable, secure and comprehensive information on maternal and child care.

Future guide dogs look for happy homes Foster parents needed for new puppies Emma Jackson

EMC news - If the goal is to socialize Franklin the puppy to become a calm, wellbehaved guide dog, there’s no better place for it than Donna Martin’s home. Between Cody the cockatoo’s squawks for attention, Tutu the parrot’s cheeky hellos, Poppy canary’s chirping and the yips and yaps of dog duo Pepper and Buddy, Franklin is surrounded by furry and feathered friends and their noise - all day long. In Martin’s Manotick home, a certain level of chaos and noise is expected “when you live in a zoo,” she said. But fostering the eightweek-old yellow Labrador retriever brought a whole new level of commitment on Jan. 11. “It is a lot of work,” she said. “If anyone has had a baby, an infant, you’ll know exactly what it’s like. When he’s awake, you’re spending your time teaching him.” Martin lives alone with her menagerie, and seems to have plenty of love to go around. Taking Franklin out for a bathroom break after lunch, her encouraging calls of “Good getting busy!” fill the wooded backyard. Martin is one of many foster parents raising puppies to become guide dogs for people with visual impairments. A new litter of retrievers was born in November, and the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Manotick is looking for foster homes in eastern Ontario to raise the puppies for up to 18 months.

Foster families are required to train the dogs using specific commands so they are consistently prepared for formal guide dog training, and to help the dog become a social, well-adapted dog. “They’re raising a good dog,” said Guide Dogs spokesperson Steven Doucette. Doucette said the foster home job is not for everyone. At least one person in the household must have the time to be with the puppy virtually 24 hours a day and everyone must commit to the training regimen the organization requires. “Some families look at it as a perfect volunteer job and some see it as a trial run,” Doucette said. “Others do it really for the cause.” Martin, without question, does it for the cause. She has wanted to foster a guide dog puppy for a long time, but couldn’t because the organization required a fenced-in back yard, she said. As soon as she heard the restriction was lifted, she put her name on the foster parent list. Her compassion for people with visual impairments was instilled in her at an early age, by a father who wore “coke bottle glasses” and was extremely myopic. “He stressed the importance of eyes to me,” Martin said. As a teen, she used to close her eyes and walk through the house to see what it would feel like to be blind. A week into fostering Franklin, Martin knows it will be hard to give him up when he leaves for training school. “I know I’m going to be

very sad,” she said. “I’m going to become attached. I know I am. But he’s not my dog.” Knowing you’ll have to give the dog up at the end of the foster period doesn’t necessarily make it easier, Doucette agreed. “It’s still going to be a little bit heartbreaking and emotional,” he said. “A lot of people will compare it to sending a child off to school, raising kids and knowing they’ll eventually leave the house.” Nevertheless, Doucette said the foster program can be very rewarding for those who are accepted to take a puppy. Guide Dog trainers will visit at least once a month to check on the puppy’s progress. Foster families require access to a vehicle for veterinary appointments and training sessions, but all food and veterinary expenses are covered. Of course, support staff are on hand at the Manotickbased Guide Dog headquarters for advice as well. “They give you a fantastic amount of support,” Martin said. And despite the anguish of the eventual goodbye, Martin said she’ll feel happy knowing Franklin is heading off to do good work. “I’m going to put my emotions and effort into making sure he’s socialized so I can send him off and know he’ll be helping somebody.” For more information, contact Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind at info@guidedogs. ca or 613-692-7777.

Irish stew warms up a cold winter day EMC lifestyle - Lamb shanks are easy to use and delicious; if unavailable, use thick shoulder chops. It’s better if made a day or two ahead. Lamb is fresh, lean, tender, mild and easy to cook. It’s an excellent source of protein, iron and B vitamins. Because lamb isn’t marbled like beef, health-conscious cooks can easily trim off the fat. Preparation Time: 30 minutes. Cooking Time: three hours. Servings: 8 INGREDIENTS

•8 lamb shanks •Salt and pepper •125 ml (1/2 cup) all-purpose flour •25 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil •4 cloves garlic, minced •5 ml (1 tsp) each dried thyme and rosemary •2 bottles (341 mL each) stout-style beer •750 ml (3 cups) beef broth •50 ml (1/4 cup) butter •45 ml (3 tbsp) packed brown sugar •3 onions, cut into wedges •3 each carrots and parsnips, cut into 2.5-cm (1-inch) pieces •1/2 rutabaga, cut into 2.5cm (1-inch) wedges

• 50 ml (1/4 cup) chopped fresh parsley PREPARATION

Season the lamb shanks with salt and pepper then coat with flour. In a large ovenproof casserole, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat. In batches, brown the lamb, adding more oil as needed. Remove to a plate. Stir in any remaining flour along with the garlic, thyme and rosemary. Stir over medium heat for one minute. Remove from heat and gradually stir in the beer. Bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Boil for five minutes, stirring often. Stir in 500 ml (2 cups) of broth. Return lamb to the pan and bring to boil. Cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for 1.5 hours. Meanwhile in skillet, melt butter and sugar over medium heat. Stir in the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Add remaining broth and bring to boil. Add to the lamb, cover and bake in 180 C (350 F) oven for another 1.25 hours or until lamb and vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

Marguirite’s ruined hair has Northcote School buzzing


omething was amiss at the Northcote School. First of all, Marguirite sneaked in like she had just been caught with her hand in the cookie jar. She usually made a grand entrance so that everyone could get a good look at whatever fancy outfit she had worn that day, but not only did she come in just as Miss Crosby rang the nine o’clock bell, she wore a wool toque and made no move to take it off, even though hats in school were strictly forbidden. She went right up to Miss Crosby’s desk and whispered in her ear. Miss Crosby looked at the hat, made a great sigh and nodded towards Marguirite’s desk. Every eye was on the young girl who didn’t have a friend in the entire school as she meekly took her seat.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Well, if that didn’t just tie it – she was going to be allowed to wear her hat in school. None of us would dare be so bold. Even the boys, the second they walked in the door, removed their caps and hung them on a hook at the back of the room. At recess Joyce, Velma and I got in a huddle to discuss this latest caper and none of us could imagine why Marguirite, who took such pride in her golden curls, would choose to hide them under a toque. We all knew Marguirite,

who thought she was a dead ringer for Shirley Temple, got those curls from Ducharmes’ Beauty Parlour, and the golden hair right out of a bottle of dye from Ritza’s Drug Store in Renfrew. Even the boys at school noticed the toque. Cecil made some snide remarks and jabbed Emerson in the ribs, but that day that’s about all the attention they gave to Marguirite. There were more important things to do at recess, like pouring water from the pump on the small square of ice be-

hind the schoolhouse. Miss Crosby rang the bell and recess was over. When we went inside, Marguirite’s head was still covered. Well, it was lunch time, and we all knew it wouldn’t be long before either Cecil or Emerson would get to the bottom of Marguirite’s hat. We were allowed to eat inside on winter days, but the second the last mouthful was down, we headed outside to play, either on the small patch of ice or on the excuse for a hill that the senior boys had built up by piling snow over the wood fence at the back of the yard. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see Emerson and Cecil whispering and the look they both had on their faces spelled trouble. In one fell-swoop, they tore past Marguirite, with Cecil making a dive for the toque.

They never stopped running until they reached the patch of ice at the back of the schoolhouse. Meanwhile, Marguirite looked like she had been shot with a gun. She stood frozen on the spot, and finally, we could all see why the toque never left her head. Right down the back, where there should have been a cascade of golden curls, was a streak of orange hair, and it was as straight as a stick. She clamped her hand over the spot and ran into the schoolhouse like someone possessed. Before our lunch hour was over, Miss Crosby rang the big brass bell and we knew Cecil and Emerson were in for it. They had no idea where they had dropped the toque. My youngest brother Earl was sent out to look for it. The two culprits, without asking, knew what was coming. Without even being asked, they went up to Miss Crosby’s desk and held out a hand. She brought the strap down with a thunder that could be heard in Admaston. They boys never flinched.

They got far worse fighting each other in the back yard. Earl got the toque, covered with snow, and handed it to Marguirite, who by this time was crying great running tears, wiping her eyes with one hand and covering the offending spot at the back of her head with the other. Marguirite always wanted everyone to believe she was born with golden hair and the curls to match. That day, everyone at school knew different, but the incident was soon forgotten and Marguirite’s mother must have made a fast trip into Renfrew, because when Marguirite walked into the classroom the next day, her head was a mass of golden curls. We had no idea how her mother got rid of the orange streak, but Joyce, Velma and I were pretty sure she had to cut it out with a pair of scissors. Joyce, the most kind hearted of the three of us thought we should all feel sorry for the girl, and maybe tell her so. But when we took a vote between the three of us, Joyce lost.

Rideau Slots union talks break down Staff

EMC news - Contract talks have broken off between unionized security staff at the OLG Slots facility at the Rideau Carleton Raceway and the employer. The 38 security employees have given their union a 100 per cent strike mandate and could be on strike as early as 12:01 a.m. on Feb. 7. The main issues include benefit parity and potential parking charges if the facility moves to a new location, according to the Ontario Public Service Employees Union. Greg McVeigh, staff negotiator for the union, said the employer’s position is “ridiculous and mean-spirited.” “We have already offered

16 Manotick EMC - Thursday, January 24, 2013

to take a wage freeze, which means employee wages will be frozen for a total five years,” McVeigh said in a statement. The largest issue is parking. Currently, there is no fee to park at the Rideau Carleton Raceway on Albion Road. However, if a new owner takes over operations and moves the facility downtown, parking could cost as much as $20 per day, a cost the employer wants employees to pay as well. “Security staff earn less than $20 per hour,” McVeigh said. “These parking charges would reduce their income by 12.5 per cent, which is a massive hit.” Talks are set to resume on Feb. 6 with the assistance of a provincial mediator.

Hicks, Franklin â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankâ&#x20AC;? April 6, 1931 - January 11, 2013

Lovingly remembered by his daughter Catherine, granddaughter Tricia, son-in-law Andre Lariviere and his children Melanie, Marc-Andre and his wife Pat. Frank graduated from Ottawa Technical High School and was a bandsman with the Royal Canadian Navy (reserve) from 1948 to 1951. He was a member of the RCAF from 1952 to 1956, then worked for the federal government for 26 years, retiring from the DSS Division in 1986. Frank was an avid racing enthusiast, which began with hydro planes, then go-carts and Formula 4. He was a member of the Motorsports Club of Ottawa for many years. Frank grew up in Manotick and had a passion for jazz music from an early age. He played saxophone and started his own band named Satin at the age of 15, playing the local Saturday night barn dances. His musical career lasted over 60 years in the Ottawa area. He was the musical director for Grey Jazz and Silver Swing for many years, and also played with Souper Jazz, Swing Junction, Swamp Water Jazz Band, Soft Sax Swing, Swing Bridge, Esquires of Swing, Apex Jazz Band and the Dixieland Jazz Band. He will be sorely missed by his music buddies.

Christmas has passed but before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too far gone, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to tell you about some Christmas Angels who reside in Greely. I am a retired grandmother who ďŹ nds myself raising two of my grandchildren. A life long friend of mine Myreille Gareau and her family have been very good to us regarding providing clothing her grandchildren have outgrown. Myreille has a friend in her hairdresser Ginette MassicotteLafrange. I guess as is usual for clients and hairdressers to chat, my situation was mentioned. Ginette and other clients of hers donated money to help out families who need a little help at this time of year. Myself and my grandchildren received outer winter wear, toiletries, PJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, toys, games, clothing, skates, gift cards and tickets to the Lights at Night in Morrisburg. To the people of Greely, you are blessed to have such Angels who really know the meaning of Christmas living and working in your community. To the families and friends who have yet to meet these Angels, you will be truly blessed. Thank you, Erlene McGuire 0124.CLR408519

Ready, set, skate Michelle Currie and her son Patrick Santos-Currie of Riverside Park South sport rosey cheeks after a morning skate on the Rideau Canal on Friday, Jan. 18, when the skateway opened for its 43rd season. Despite temperatures below 20 C, a number of residents laced up as soon as they could to enjoy the frozen canal. The National Capital Commission only opened a 2.2-kilometre stretch to begin with, between Bank Street and Pretoria Bridge. The canal is a popular destination for residents and tourists alike, particularly in February, during the three-week Winterlude festival hosted by the NCC. LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Landfill environmental studies to move forward Residents continue to fight dumps in Russell, Carlsbad Springs

EMC news - A new garbage facility near Carlsbad Springs or in Russell Township has moved closer to approval, but not without resistance from two community groups. The proposed Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre may be built by Taggart Miller on one of two proposed sites: in Russell or near Boundary Road within City of Ottawa limits. In late December, the Ministry of the Environment has approved Taggart Miller’s terms for an environmental assessment, which outline the studies and consultations required before the facility can be approved. Residents in both areas have been vocal in speaking out against the facility, forming Dump the Dump and Dump this Dump 2 groups; one for each proposed site. The ministry’s most recent amendments added that Taggart Miller will need to hold “special workshops and technical sessions” for matters such as groundwater and noise.

It also specified that all public consultation sessions are to be offered in both French and English. Community groups had expressed concern that the terms of reference – a lengthy document – was only made available in English. COMMUNITY CONCERNED

Last year, both community protest groups strongly encouraged residents to send in both a form letter and their own comments with oppositions and concerns about the proposals. A document comprising nearly 700 pages includes comments from 769 people along with Taggart Miller’s responses. “As a realtor in the area affected by this proposal and as a long time resident, I am entirely opposed to this for the sake of the residents’ health and the direct impact it would have on one of the biggest investments families will ever make – the value of their homes,” wrote one commenter, none of whom are identified by name. Taggart Miller responded that a property value protec-

Many citizens also expressed concern with the height of the water table and possible contamination of groundwater, as many nearby residents rely on well water. The company said potential effects on groundwater will be examined during the geology, hydrogeology and geotechni-

Pet Adoptions DUKE ID#A148023

Duke is a neutered male, tricolour, Blue Tick and Walker Hound mix. The staff at the Ottawa Humane Society think he is about 5 years old. Duke was brought it to the OHS as a stray, and has been a beloved resident for just over 5 months now. He is patiently waiting for his forever home. Duke is a laid back fella, just looking for some extra attention from people who love him. He loves to discover new things by going on long walks, and would love a bed to call his own after his regular outings. He’s a little stubborn, and wants things done his way so a house with kids over the age of 8 would be better for him. Duke is available as a ‘Special Needs’ adoption due to possible food allergies, which may need some veterinary guidance to sort out.

The Price of Adoption Why doesn’t the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) give away dogs, cats, and other pets for free? At first this may seem like a great idea: free pets means more families will be able to afford a homeless animal. However, having a pet costs money. A free kitten from a friend of a friend is hard to resist. However, that kitten needs to be health checked by your veterinarian, dewormed, vaccinated, and spayed. A free puppy from the newspaper or an online ad needs the same. How much are you really saving? The year one initial costs sterilization, vaccination, deworming, etc. will cost more than $600 for a kitten, plus approximately $900 in yearly ongoing costs that include food, litter, grooming and boarding. Sadly, many people are uninformed of these costs and many “free” animals end up being surrendered to the humane society. In fact, more than 7,000 cats end up at the Ottawa Humane Society every year. Thirty-five percent of them are believed to have been acquired either from a friend or relative or from some form of “free to good home.” At the OHS, a health check, initial deworming and vaccination, sterilization (spay or neuter) a permanent microchip identification and pet insurance for 6 weeks is included in the dog and cat

cal aspects of the environmental assessment. “I am sick and tired of Carlsbad being the joke of the city of Ottawa,” another community member wrote to the ministry. “People want to sell and move before the dump is dumped on us. Please, please, please, put a stop to the project before it is too late!” There were several lengthy comments that addressed the

terms of reference in great detail, addressing issues such as traffic, fault lines and proximity to agricultural sites. The comments and responses are easily accessible to anyone wishing to view them. The proposed terms of reference and community feedback, with Taggart Miller responses, are available at The comments can be found at the link en-

titled “CRRRC TOR public comment table.” The timeline for an environmental assessment of this nature is often fairly lengthy, and residents shouldn’t expect to see studies results for at least several months. The group opposing the Boundary Road site in the city of Ottawa, Dump This Dump 2, has a website at www.



Everest is a neutered male, gray tabby, domestic longhair cat, he is about three years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on December 28, but is now available for adoption. Everest loves people! He is looking for a family that will give him lots of affection. As much as he loves company, he would be much more comfortable as the only animal in your household. Give Everest the chance to win your heart over by coming to see him at the Ottawa Humane Society! Visit the OHS website at to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption. Stop by the Adoption Centre, weekdays 11:00am-7:00pm and Saturdays 10:00am-5:00pm. adoption fees. The average cost of canine sterilization at a vet clinic is $350.00 while feline sterilization costs and average of $250.00. In the end, adopting a pet from the OHS offers great savings! The OHS adoption prices are: $290 for dogs older than six months, $350 for puppies and small breeds; $170 for cats older than six months, $225 for kittens. It’s the best deal around! OHS dogs receive a temperament assessment prior to being placed for adoption. This translates into much needed information about the dog in order to make the best possible match between the potential adopter and the canine, for a successful and permanent placement. All animals receive a routine health check by OHS veterinary staff prior to adoption. The first vaccination is given and if the animal is within our system for any extended period of time, they will receive a booster (second vaccination). All animals are implanted with a microchip (a permanent form of identification) prior to being adopted, and are automatically enrolled with pet insurance for six weeks of free coverage, effective 48 hours post-adoption.

My name is Jasmine, and I am a 7 month old parti poodle, with our other, much older standard poodle Riley to play with whenever. My owners love me very much it seems as they’ve taught me to sit, and whenever I do they hand out tasty rewards. I love to sit! They are so warm, and when they are sitting I lean against them and on their socks, and we all get warm. Going for walks in Britannia Village is a bark and a hoot with so many other dogs and their owners to sniff and greet. My favourite thing to do is leaping through the snow in our big back yard. 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
