EMC news - A growing drug problem in the region has prompted the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre to develop an early intervention service for youth addicted to painkillers. The outpatient service was launched in early January

and was discussed in detail on Jan. 21 at a public meeting in Manotick, where Ottawa’s fentanyl abuse problem first became apparent last summer. Fentanyl is a strong prescription opioid used to treat chronic pain, and comes in the form of patches which are worn on the skin. It is becoming an experi-

mental drug of choice for many youth in the area. But unlike drugs like marijuana and alcohol, it is highly addictive even after just one use. This has left otherwise good kids hooked on the patch and committing crimes to feed their habit. “It can happen to any kid,” said Beverly Clark, a former Manotick resident whose son was one of several students kicked out of St. Mark Catholic High School because of his fentanyl addiction. “They don’t have to be bad kids.” Last August, the problem became painfully apparent when Tyler Campbell, a 17-

year-old Manotick student, overdosed and died. Police began to connect a rash of break-ins across Manotick to a small group of addicted teenagers and youths in the village. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod called a town hall meeting in November to address the issue, which was widely publicized. Police have since identified other fentanyl hot spots across the city, including in Orleans, according to Ottawa police Staff Sgt. Kal Ghadban. Now, the Royal Ottawa has responded with the regional opioid intervention service

in an effort to help youth and early users get off the drugs quickly. Program developer Dr. Melanie Willows said more and more youth are admitting themselves to the hospital with opioid addictions, but the wait time for the hospital’s small detox unit is “unacceptably long.” “Thinking of someone who has only been using opioids for three months waiting another four to six months to get help didn’t make a lot of sense,” she told a crowd of about 50 people at the Jan. 21 meeting.

Addiction can happen to anyone Continued from the front

The new intervention service is an outpatient program geared to youths under 30 and to people who have been using for fewer than five years.

We’re hoping this is going to mean no more knocking on the wrong door.

Staying Focused on Jobs and Growth Jobs and economic growth are the most important issues for a majority of Canadians. A few months ago, Jim Flaherty, our Minister of Finance, updated the country on where Canada stands and how we have dealt with the global economic crisis. The Minister indicated that we have avoided many of the troubles facing other countries, and remain on track to return to a balanced budget in the medium term. The Economic Action Plan is working. Since its launch in the summer of 2009, the Plan has helped create over 900,000 net new jobs. To build on this success, we also recently passed the Jobs and Growth Act 2012 which is helping grow Canada’s economy, fuel job creation and secure Canada’s long-term prosperity. We are accomplishing this through measures such as the one-year extension of the Hiring Credit for Small Businesses, making improvements to the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSPs) and adjusting tax rules to encourage Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPPs). We have also been diversifying our international trade relationships in order to open new markets for Canadian businesses. Prime Minister Harper met with dignitaries in countries like India, the Philippines and Hong Kong in order to achieve this.

It currently operates from the Royal on Carling Avenue near Merivale Road, but the hospital has partnered with other hospitals, community health services, mental health and addiction agencies and primary care physicians across the region to make sure youth can continue to access counselling, treatment and support in their own community after the initial three-week detox program is complete. “The idea is we all share the care of the patient to offer the full spectrum of what can be provided to them,” said Dr. Kim Corace, who worked with Willows to develop the program. The program is unique,

the wrong door,” she said. The next orientation session will be held on Feb. 7 for families of youth struggling with an opioid addiction. Addictions counsellors will be available to discuss treatment

privately with youth. Clark knows all too well what fentanyl addiction looks like. Her son was 17 when he tried the drug at a party and was hooked. In the middle of Grade 12, he was kicked out of St. Mark Catholic High School in Manotick and sent to rehab. Within three weeks, he was living at the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre, receiving treatment for his fentanyl addiction. Eighteen months later and with the help of the rehab centre, he’s clean – but it’s easy for her to imagine a relapse. “He is straight now but it’s a day-to-day deal,” said Clark. VALENTINE FOR LIVES

My purpose in politics is to expand freedom so each person can earn success, own their destiny and take responsibility for their life. Canadians can count on our Government to accomplish this by remaining focused on jobs, growth and economic prosperity. We have succeeded in avoiding many of the trials that face other countries, and will continue to control spending and keep taxes low.

Staff Sgt. Kal Ghadban speaks to a crowd of about 50 people on Jan. 21 during a town meeting to discuss the growing problem of fentanyl abuse in the city.


Our Government is also making changes to our immigration system in order to better align it with the needs of our economy. We are taking steps to encourage high-skilled immigrants to come to Canada through the Canadian Experience Class, a category we introduced in 2008. Additionally, Jason Kenney, our Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, has announced the introduction of a Start-Up Visa to recruit innovative immigrant entrepreneurs who will create new jobs in Canada.


Corace said, because it focuses on “concurrent treatment” of the addiction as well as any mental health issues the patient might have. There is a high correlation between substance abuse and mental health issues, she said; between 40 and 70 per cent of all substance abusers suffer from a mental health issue, usually an anxiety or mood disorder like depression. Corace said the key to successfully kicking substance abuse is addressing the problems that contributed to it. “If you don’t address the underlying issues that come with the addiction, there’s more risk of a relapse because those reasons that led you to the addiction in the first place are still there,” Corace said. The service offers a threeweek detox period, during which the patient receives doses of an “opioid agonist” that allows the patient to taper off their addiction. The client will also build a treatment plan and have access to ongoing counselling. Every month, the service will host an orientation for addicts and families of addicts who want to get help. If the service is not right for a person, Willows said, the service will help point them in the right direction. “We’re hoping this is going to mean no more knocking on

Clark has now organized a fundraiser for the treatment centre, which is one of the partners with the Royal’s new intervention service, and the only non-profit rehab centre in eastern Ontario. On Feb. 12, the Valentine for Lives murder mystery dinner will offer dinner and entertainment at the Lone Star ranch on Hunt Club Road in south Nepean. The Kemptville Players theatre group will stage the murder mystery and NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod will speak about the drug issue. Tickets are $50 each. Clark said she is simply hoping to raise money for an organization that stood behind her when the rest of the community seemed to turn its back. “For my family, Dave Smith was a lifeline,” said Clark, who also received counselling there while her son was recovering. “I don’t know where I’d be without it.” For more information or to purchase tickets visit For information about the intervention service and its orientation sessions visit

Ottawa’s #1 Ranked Soccer Club


Brownie buddies OSU’s Abdou Samaké achieves dream in joining Montreal Impact academy When Abdou Samaké’s family moved to Montréal-Nord from Bamako, Mali when he was 5, they carried big dreams. When Samaké began playing soccer at age 9 in Ottawa, it was the start of a new dream. And now at age 16, the dream of becoming a professional soccer player is that much closer for the Ottawa South United star who just moved back to Montreal to join the Impact’s youth academy. It was a big moment when Samaké’s parents took him out to dinner in early November to tell him the big news they’d received in an e-mail from the MLS club. “When my meal came, they told me, ‘Oh, by the way, you made the Impact,’” Samaké recounts. “I had to go to the bathroom and put some water on my face to make sure it wasn’t a dream. I was very happy.” Samaké had previously attended open tryouts for the Impact academy, where he was suddenly thrust into a new role as defensive sweeper. “I was scared for my life,” reflects the bright Louis-Riel high school student who spent most of his career as a striker. “But I said, ‘You know what? If they put me there, it must be because they see something,’ so I played my best.” Samaké was thankful that the OSU Force Academy and his coach Russell Shaw had taught him some defensive skills as a midfielder since he joined the club prior to last season. “I like defensive mid a lot,” he highlights. “It’s more touches on the ball and you kind of control the game. You’re like a maestro. You’re coordinating everything in the middle, attacking and defending.” For Samaké, the attraction to the OSU Force Academy was a combination of the opportunity to play in the OYSL, the professionalism throughout the club, and the top-notch coaching available. Shaw and head coach Paul Harris ( former Everton FC Academy coach) were a big help, he adds. “They really brought me to the next level and helped me take that next step to the academy,” Samaké explains. “There’s a thin margin between being good and being good enough to enter a pro academy. I feel they really helped me step over that bar.” A big part of the U16 squad that held its own in a competitive OYSL division this past summer, Samaké counts many fond memories from his time with OSU. “I’m going to miss my club very much. I love my club, I love my school, and I love my mom,” Samaké emphasizes. “She used to drive me to every game, every training, and every day she’d ask me how soccer went. It’s going to be weird not having that home feeling. I guess I’ll have to mature a lot very quickly.” Samaké will be moving to the Impact’s training residence along with two other players who’d started training with OSU this winter before now also joining the Impact – YannAlexandre Fillion and Nevello Yoseke. Force 2000 player Tarik Jouali is also amongst the younger players invited to the next round of trials. “Not a lot of soccer players get the chance to go to a professional academy. It’s really a dream for me,” Samaké says. “My main goal would be to go pro. It’s a great opportunity, and I want to prove to them that I am the right player for them.”

Last try for Osgoode Canada Day Volunteers needed to save event in 2014 Emma Jackson

EMC news - Residents want to keep their Canada Day festivities in Osgoode, but unless more people help out this summer’s event will be the final year. At the Osgoode Village Community Association’s annual general meeting on Jan. 24 the executive asked a small crowd of residents whether the event should be canned, since it has been run by the same four volunteers and their families - the same people who also sit on the board - for several years. The yearly celebration begins with family games and activities in the afternoon, a barbecue and parade in the early evening and live entertainment as night falls. A fireworks display caps the festivities after dark. Greg Thurlow has led the organizing committee for three years. He said the current model is unsustainable, and will force the end of the event next year if more people don’t come forward to help. “If there are 1,500 to 2,000 people out there and only five people running it, it doesn’t

work,” Thurlow said. “After this year if we don’t have the volunteers I really don’t see the point in holding it in Osgoode again.” President Lori Daneliak, who stepped down at the meeting, said planning for Canada Day begins in the fall and only intensifies throughout the year. “The grant writing begins in October and it carries through with booking equipment and entertainment for the night,” she said. “There’s a lot of paperwork to fill out with the city of Ottawa.” While only one resident at the meeting confirmed he would volunteer for the event, Thurlow said several community groups have come forward to take some of the burden this year. The Gallagher family has volunteered to look after booking bands and acts for the stage. A youth group at Trinity Bible Church has offered to help with tear down. Long-time Lions member Dwayne Acres said there are ready-made teams already in the community that can be a volunteer resource: firefighters, community groups, Scouts and Guides and sports

teams. Recruiting small teams of people would spread the workload out and make the event more manageable for organizers, Acres said. But volunteers have to be actively convinced. “We have to go after them. They’re not going to flock to us,” he said. Volunteers are needed to help with planning in the months leading up the event, to set up the day before and to help run the festivities on Canada Day. Volunteers are especially needed to help with tear-down and clean up on July 2. To volunteer or for more information visit SPRING PROJECTS

During the AGM, Daneliak said grants from the city of Ottawa will finance a number of improvements throughout the village this spring. The association has already paid $5,000 for an acryllic coating for the tennis courts at the community centre, which will be applied as soon as possible in the spring. The money is part of a $16,000 grant through the city’s Rural Community Building Grants program. The remaining $11,000 will be used for new benches and garbage cans to be installed along the multi-use pathway, as well as kilometre markers. Daneliak said she also hopes to buy a new community events sign for the village. Vice-president Jennifer Andrews-West took over as president for a two-year term. Daneliak said she will now focus on improving the village’s Neighbourhood Watch program. “I’m really happy to revamp that with (community police officer Const. Nicole Gorham),” she said. “We need more people and more signs.”


Greely resident Kris Gough is leading the charge to allow ATVs on some roads and road allowances in Osgoode Ward.

Residents get ‘sneak peak’ at ATV proposal Emma Jackson

EMC news - A plan to allow all-terrain vehicles on the shoulders of several roads in Osgoode was well-received at a meeting on Jan. 24. Nation Valley ATV Club member Kris Gough offered residents at the Osgoode community association’s AGM an early look at his proposal for a two-year pilot project that the city will put forward for feedback in February. He has been working with

Coun. Doug Thompson and city staff for two years to help his Winchester-based club connect to Ottawa trails. Under Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act, ATVs are only legally allowed to cross roads at 90-degree angles – not drive alongside them. To change the rule, municipalities must pass a by-law allowing ATVs on shoulders. Six of nine municipalities that touch the city’s boundaries have such by-laws, including North Dundas and North Grenville.

Gough’s proposal matches the rules in Winchester so there is consistency for club members crossing the city boundary. Single-seat ATVs with stock mufflers would be allowed on select sections of roads from half an hour before dawn to half an hour after dusk. The proposal includes Cabin Road between Doyle Road and Manotick Station Road, and Manotick Station Road between Cabin Road and Springhill Road, and a couple other small links along roadsides. Thompson has also agreed to consider allowing ATVs to come down Second Line to access the restaurant and grocery store. Gough, a Greely resident, said the plan recognizes the economic potential of allowing ATVs greater access to villages. “You have residents who leave the city to ride,” he said, noting that a planned Ride for Dad in Winchester has already attracted 60 ATV riders from outside the area. “It really promotes tourism.” In response to questions of drunk driving and hooliganism, Gough said those riders are the exception and will not be tolerated by the club. “We want to be on a trail so badly, we’ll police ourselves,” he said. “There’s always going to be hooligans in cars and hooligans in ATVs, but we’re going to do our best to weed them out.” Members of the public can offer feedback on the proposed by-law at a public meeting on Feb. 20 at the Osgoode community centre.

Slots staying at Rideau-Carleton Ontario lottery corporation will lease slots space at raceway Emma Jackson and Laura Mueller

EMC news - Slot machines will stay at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway despite the province cancelling its Slots at Raceway program. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation announced on Jan. 23 that it has reached agreements to lease space for its slot machines at eight of the sites that currently offer slots, including RideauCarleton. The expiry date of the lease agreements haven’t been confirmed, but OLG spokesperson Tony Bitonti said the agreements average in length between three and five years. “(The agreements) do vary from racetrack to racetrack because we’re going into a landlord-tenant agreement, whereas before all the racetracks got 10 per cent of revenue and all the horse associations got 10 per cent,” Bitonti said. “It’s not a clean and dry formula like it was before.” Some racetracks operate their own food and beverage services, for example, while other don’t, Bitonti said. He would not confirm details of

the program is part of OLG’s gambling modernization plan that would put gaming facilities in 23 urban centres across the province. Ottawa’s city council voted to support in principle the idea of putting a new casino in Ottawa. After OLG issues a request for developers interested in building and running a casino here, Ottawa residents will have a chance to comment on the plans. City council could veto a casino if it doesn’t like the proposed location. Bitonti said the RideauCarleton Raceway is fully able to take part in the OLG’s plan to bring a casino to Ottawa, and any decisions about where a new facility might be located would be decided between the private sector investor, the city and the OLG. “When we choose a private sector operator, they will take over the day to day operation of the existing facility and then decisions will have to be made,” Bitonti said. “In many cases the slots facilities, the gaming operations, will stay exactly where they are.” He recognized the OLG wants to locate its gaming facilities in populated areas, rather than rural regions. “We want to make sure our products are where the customers are, and in some cases where the racetracks are that’s not the case,” he said. “Some

the agreements because the parties have yet to sign final contracts. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod said she believes the agreements are only meant to last until the OLG is able to act on its plan to build casinos in urban areas, including downtown Ottawa – effectively cannibalizing the racetrack. “While on the surface it seems OK, it’s just extending the inevitable,” MacLeod said. “Nobody should take any comfort in this. It’s only going to prolong the transition.” MacLeod has been vocal about saving the province’s racetracks since last March, when the provincial government announced it was cutting the revenue sharing program as of March 31, 2013. “It doesn’t take away the fact that the OLG wants a downtown casino,” she said. “And the minute that happens the slots are ripped out of the racetrack.” Cancelling the Slots at the Racetracks program was intended to save $345 million, Ontario Liberals said, which could be better spent on health care and education. Ending

of them are in the perfect location.” Over the past five years, the city has received between $4.3 and $4.4 million each year from 1,250 slot machines at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. A new agreement signed in November would put an additional $1.3 million into the city’s coffers annually if slot revenue remains the same. The agreement means the city gets 5.25 per cent of the first $65 million of net slot revenue, three per cent on the next $135 million, 2.5 per cent of the next $300 million and half a per cent of the re-


The OLG and the Rideau-Carleton Raceway have reached a lease agreement in principle that could keep the slots open for up to five years. mainder of net slot revenue. The gambling modernization plan is intended to increase net revenue to the province by $1.3 billion annually, create 2,300 net new industry jobs and about 4,000 service sector jobs and spur more than $3 billion in capital investment across Ontario.

In August, members from all three political parties supported a private member’s motion from MacLeod calling for the provincial auditor general to review the decision to scrap the program. The Rideau-Carleton Raceway could not be reached for comment by press time.

Discount passes added to canal fee plan Your Children’s Aid

Emma Jackson

2013 is a very special year for the Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa. It marks the 25th anniversary of supporting children and youth in our community. Since 1988, the Foundation has provided enrichment and educational opportunities to the children and young adults in the care of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa.

EMC news - Parks Canada has added discount passes to a proposed new fee structure for the country’s canal systems, after a public backlash against potentially tripled lockage prices. The new seasonal pass would cost $15 per foot, up from the current $8.08 rate. The six-day pass would increase from $5.05 per foot to $7.20 per foot.

On January 23, 250 business and community leaders came together in the ballroom at the Chateau Laurier to learn more about the Foundation and to help celebrate our silver anniversary. A special thank you to our breakfast champion, the Honourable Vern White, Senator, for his tremendous assistance in making this celebration a real success.

The passes come in the wake of public outcry from boaters and local representatives who said the federal department’s proposed per-use payment system announced earlier in January would kill canal tourism. On Jan. 11, the federal department proposed new fees for national historic sites, parks and other properties in an effort to raise the amount of revenue available for maintenance and operation.

During his annual stateof-the-city address on Jan. 23, Watson announced he will lend his name to the first Mayor’s Gala for the Arts in November. The event will be a fundraiser for the future redevelopment of Arts Court, a gallery, theatre and studio space on Daly Avenue downtown. In conjunction with the fundraiser, the mayor announced he will also host a day-long arts fair at city hall. The event, which will stretch into the evening, will invite local artists and performers to promote their upcoming theatre and concert seasons and other arts initiatives. This year will also mark the Karsh Masson Gallery’s move to its permanent home at city hall. RURAL EXPO

culture in 2013 by hosting the first rural expo. “The expo will ‌ act as a way for our rural community to boast and show off their talents and products to a larger urban audience,â€? Watson said. “There is much to be proud of and celebrate in great places like Munster, Fitzroy Harbour, Carp, Navan, North Gower and Vars, just to name a few.â€? The event will be a chance for rural residents to promote fairs, museums, crafts and agriculture to the urban population, right in the core at city hall. No time of year was specified for the event, but the mayor indicated it will happen sometime in 2013. PUBLIC RECYCLING

The mayor wants to see recycling bins accompany garbage bins on Ottawa streets. During his speech, Watson said he wants to work with the environment committee and staff to come up with more options to provide recycling facilities on major streets throughout the city. “My view is if we put out

garbage cans, we should be equally vigilant in ensuring they stand beside recycling receptacles,� he said. “It is a shame and wasteful to see so many recyclables thrown into garbage cans simply because recycling is not widely available on public streets.� Watson also called for a new “public-awareness effort� to build on the success of community beautification initiatives like Cleaning the Capital. “Because the city cannot and should not do it alone,� Watson said. “Through renewed efforts, it is my hope that we will see cleaner streets and a renewed sense of civic pride amongst residents.� YEAR OF ACTION

Whereas 2012 was about making big decisions, like moving ahead on construction of the city’s light-rail system and Lansdowne Park, 2013 will be about acting on those big plans, Watson said. “We will achieve our goals as we continue our collaborative approach during the coming year and for the rest of our term,� he said. In addition to large, city-

building initiatives like LRT, construction will get underway on a new indoor pool for Orleans, new recreational complexes in Kanata North and Barrhaven, the Sensplex east arena in Beacon Hill and more Ottawa on the Move road projects. Moving forward with the city’s action plan to clean up the Ottawa River is also a priority for the mayor. City council just received information that the price tag to complete the necessary work from 2009 to 2014 will cost $355 million dollars – $100 million more expensive than was originally projected. Watson reiterated that he wants the federal and provincial governments to help foot the bill. “Both ministers (John) Baird and (Bob) Chiarelli have stated publicly their support for this important initiative,� Watson said during his speech. “When the next round of infrastructure funding becomes available, I am hopeful that we will be able to secure funding from our federal and provincial partners and so that we can move forward with this key project.�

Making the winter a little warmer for all


inter’s chill always comes with some warm ideas. There are people in every community across the city who see winter as the right time to plan their biggest events. What better way to break up a season that begs you to stay indoors and hibernate? After a week or more of punishing cold, people start to get a touch of cabin fever if they don’t spend any time

outdoors. We lose out on opportunities to get some physical activity and we risk losing out on social connections. Cold drives us indoors, making our shopping malls, community centres, rinks and libraries good places to spend time. All are good places to make new friends. While Winterlude does a great job of giving us all something to look forward to, it’s the local, grassroots efforts of volunteers that can reunite Ottawans with the

great outdoors. Doing all that work at -30 C is tough sledding, so to speak, but won’t stop everyone. It’s not easy to run events in January or February in this country, but our hardiest volunteers can be counted on year after year to snub Jack Frost and head outdoors. If you dress properly, keep track of the kids and watch out for frostbite, some of this city’s coldest days are still enjoyable. Be it organizing a winter

carnival in a park or flooding outdoor rinks, it’s volunteers that get the job done. We owe them plenty of thanks and a very, very large cup of hot chocolate. Every year, communities across the country gather at their local rinks to celebrate Hockey Day in Canada. Sure, the weather is often way below zero, and participants can often be seen banging their skates against the ice to keep the blood circulating and warm their chilled feet

– but also visible are the big toothy grins on the faces of children as they wobble across the ice. And it isn’t unusual to see the groups of parents gathered at the boards let out an occasional guffaw as they watch their sons and daughters antics on the ice. It isn’t so much the game. It’s about family and togetherness (it’s no coincidence that the event is scheduled close to Family Day for Ontarians.)

When the going – or weather in this case – gets tough, it has the strange byproduct of bringing friends, families and communities closer together. Let’s be honest, given a choice most of us would prefer lounging on a Bermuda beach or strolling down an Acapulco avenue rather than endure another day of the Great Canadian Winter. So instead of bemoaning yet another day when the temperatures hover around -40 C (with wind chill), grab your sled, skis, skates or winter gear of choice and enjoy this season of togetherness. ’Tis the season to be jolly.


Boo to the hockey boobirds CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


t’s nice to have hockey back so that we can appreciate the insights it brings into human behaviour. For example, when the Florida Panthers were in town, Ottawa Senators fans booed whenever the Panthers’ Alex Kovalev touched the puck. This sort of thing goes on a lot in hockey rinks and if you asked Senators fans why they booed they would reply he played for Ottawa a couple of years ago, got a big salary and didn’t seem to try very hard. Another former Senator accused of not always trying hard, Alexei Yashin, used to get similar treatment when he showed up here in a New York Islanders uniform. That’s understandable, I suppose, although cheering your team always seems more useful than booing the other one -- and sets a better example for the kids in the crowd. At home you’re teaching them that hating people is wrong; at the rink you’re showing them that there are exceptions. Generally speaking, the booing has at least some faint historical justification: the player did something wrong, like not play well, or sign with another team. Several Toronto players who played a chippier kind of game heard boos in Ottawa. And of course there is the peculiar case of Daniel Alfredsson, who once knocked a Leafs player into the boards in a playoff game and got away without a penalty. Worse, he stole the puck and scored the gamewinning goal. For that, which happened in 2002, Alfredsson is booed to this day by Leafs fans, every time he touches the puck. In a bizarre twist, the booing is quite loud in Ottawa,

because so many Leafs fans attend games here. So you have the most beloved player in Ottawa history being booed in his own arena because of something that happened to Toronto more than 10 years ago. It is difficult to count the number of ways in which this is wrong. But at least it can be explained. How do you explain that fact that Erik Karlsson, Ottawa’s young defence star, was booed every time he touched the puck on opening night in Winnipeg? What did Karlsson ever do to them? Did he once fight a Jets player? Did he say something nasty about Winnipeg in a local paper? That will sometimes do it. Well, no. He didn’t do those things. He was booed for being a great player on the opposing team. Isn’t that crazy? You boo a guy because he’s on the other team and he’s good. That’s how it works and it’s certainly not limited to Winnipeg. When Sidney Crosby, then 19 years old, played in Ottawa in the 2007 playoffs, the many fans made a point of booing the Penguins star. Why? Many local commentators asked the question at the time, condemning the booing as classless. The only serious defence came from people such as the anonymous contributor to an online forum who said: “We boo someone to take them off their game.� Right. A guy has played hockey all his life at the highest level and is paid millions of dollars for doing so and he is going to be taken off his game because some fans boo. More likely, he won’t even hear it, such is his level of concentration. That’s what Erik Karlsson said after the game in Winnipeg. He didn’t hear it. Two months after becoming a national hero for scoring the game-winning overtime goal for Canada in the 2010 Olympics, Crosby was booed in Ottawa during the playoffs. His team went on to win that series. Of course, they pay for their tickets and it’s a free country and all that. And of course words like “sportsmanship� are rarely heard these days. Still, wouldn’t it be better to save the booing for something truly deserving, like the flu or the commissioner?

Letter to the editor

Do Parkway Road right the first time Dear Editor, I just read an article Emma Jackson wrote about Coun. Doug Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for 2013. Parkway Road was cited as one of his top priorities. I was happy to see the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;signalizedâ&#x20AC;? when the joining of Parkway to Apple Orchard was mentioned. One thing I am concerned about, however, is as Greely expands most of the growth will occur south and westward. This means Parkway will become a much busier roadway because the retail portion of the town will be located in the Bank Street/Parkway Road/ Meadow Drive area. My concern is that the city will take the same approach to â&#x20AC;&#x153;fixingâ&#x20AC;? this road as they did with Manotick Station Road. Manotick Station Road was rebuilt and repaved. The road is now in excellent condition. However, it was not widened. Because of the increased

traffic flow on Parkway Road, i.e. automobiles, bicycles, pedestrians, etc. this road will need to be expanded. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the road needs to be four lanes wide like Limebank Road is now, however, I believe the city needs to include money to add at least one additional lane which can be used for off-road traffic, i.e. the bicycles and pedestrians. To simplify my point, the updated Parkway Road should take on the characteristics of Parkway Road between Bank Street and Old Prescott Road. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind seeing my tax money used for worthwhile projects such as road maintenance. However, I would like to see that these projects are done correctly otherwise it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for residents to realize the problem and we will not have received the full benefit we deserve.

Carrying wintry thoughts, fears to bed


hen winter had socked in around us out in Renfrew County, I developed a whole new collection of fears, which oddly only occurred at night. In the daytime, I loved the look of the wide-open fields deep in the whitest snow, the West Hill where we slid on makeshift toboggans, and the sounds of the sleigh bells as the horses pulled us along the Northcote Side Road. But when night wrapped around us and we were bedded down upstairs, childish fears settled in, and I often had trouble finding sleep. I wondered if either of Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predictions would come true while we were fast asleep in our beds. Mother, fearful of the raging Findlay Oval that had to be stoked every night by Father, was sure that the whole house would go up in flames and we would all be, as she said â&#x20AC;&#x153;fried in our beds.â&#x20AC;? She based her fear on the fact that during the winter, we could count on at least two or three flue fires. These didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to bother Father in the least. When the pipes turned red, he would simply take his time rising from his spot in the rocking chair, casually walk over to the bake cupboard, take out a bag of coarse salt, pour a

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories good portion into a soup bowl and with his winter mitts on he would miraculously separate the stove pipe where two pieces joined, slip in the bowl of salt and go back to reading the Ottawa Farm Journal. It worked every time, but Mother was sure that one time it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t or that the flue fire would happen when we were fast asleep. Father assured her that as the night wore on, the fire would go down in the Findlay Oval. But that did little to put Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind at ease and of course I carried the fear right upstairs to my bed, which I shared with my sister Audrey. If Mother wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worrying about the fire taking us all during the night, she was worried that we could easily freeze in our beds. The old log home, it seemed, was in a constant state of deep freeze. Even though Father, when the snow had come to stay, packed snow all around the foundation of the house, supposedly to keep out the drafts, it did little. Even the many braided rugs Mother put everywhere she

could, including ones rolled up and put along the outside doors, we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep out the cold night air. When we sat around the kitchen table at night, each of us had our own cushion to rest our feet on, and crudely-made felt slippers and heavy socks helped little. However, the cold in the kitchen was nothing compared to the cold upstairs. There was no insulation in the peaked ceiling and all winter, hoar frost appeared all along the boards. As soon as your feet hit the top step, day or night, you could see your breath. Even the contents of the chamber pot under our bed would be frozen in the morning. Mother tried to warm our beds before we plunged between the feather mattress and the top ticking, by putting in hot bricks wrapped in The Renfrew Mercury, but they soon chilled and did nothing to keep our feet warm. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual for me to wear my long underwear under my flannelette pyjamas. But it was the night noises

of winter that really terrified me. Wildlife surrounded the farm. Wolves howled at night and their eerie wails terrified me. I prayed that Father had secured the barn doors tightly, and that our sheep would be safe. If it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the wolves it was the coyotes, which my brother Emerson said were one and the same as the wolves. He added to my worry by telling me he knew for a fact that they could wipe out a whole chicken coop in one night. And just as I tried to put all my night fears behind me, there would be a thunderous crack. The old log house would shudder, and I would lay there waiting for another blast of frost that would cause the timbers to respond to the bitter cold. Eventually I would fall asleep, having prayed loud and long that a higher being would keep us safe during the night; safe from going up in smoke in our beds, safe from neighbours discovering our frozen bodies when we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up at Northcote School, and safe from the night creatures and sounds that surrounded our old log house in Renfrew County. In the morning, I would again see the wonders of winter, and all would once again be right in my world.

Dodging their wrath Emma Jackson

EMC news - Osgoode Township High School’s graduating class took aim at its teachers in a friendly game of lunchtime dodgeball on Jan. 22. The game was a culmination of a week of games pitting junior and senior grades

against each other. When the teachers requested a game, too, organizer and student council co-president Alison Reiszadeh was happy to oblige. Students sported war paint for the event, which attracted a crowd of spectators sitting on the stage. The small team of teachers donned wigs, ski goggles

and Youth Service Bureau toques. As many as 60 students formed an intimidating wall on their side of the court, while the teachers’ team had to spread out to cover its bases. While the teachers were outnumbered, they held the court for as long as they could before losing both games.

GUIDE 2013

Contemplating summer camps: Have you consulted with your children? EMC lifestyle - Winter is slowly coming to an end and you’re already starting to consider summer camps for your children. But before you make a final decision, ask them what they think. Summer camp is a time for kids to have fun, so the camp you choose should meet their needs, not yours. You might have a summer science camp in mind, but maybe your kids are thinking more along the lines of swimming, canoeing and singing around a campfire. If your children don’t want to go to a particular summer camp, do you really think they will have a good time? Throughout the year they have to handle the responsi-

bilities of school, extracurricular activities and homework; summer camp is a special time for them to let loose and just have fun. So ask your kids what they want to do. Make a list based on what your kids tell you and start researching summer camps that offer these kinds of activities. There are provincial associations and websites that can help provide you with an appropriate list of camps. Talking to parents who have already sent their children to the particular camp you are considering is a great way to ensure that your children’s safety and comfort will be a priority. That way, your kids will have fun and you’ll have peace of mind. – Metro Creative Graphics


Now may be the best time to talk to your children about how they feel about spending some of their summer at a camp.

Seed growers endorse positive programs at 2013 farm Show will occur at the farm show. To date, she said, no other events are preceding it. Farm Credit Canada is a key farm show partner.

Regional seed judging will take place at the Greely Community Centre, 8:30 to 3 p.m. on March 9.

OVSGA granted $750 to help pay for a ceremony recognizing St. Pascal’s Gerard Savage – a past seed association president - with the FrancoOntarian Agricultural Award of Merit. The association also allocated $300 to Jakob Vogel of Stormont County who’s spearheading the agricultural judging team at Dalhousie Agricultural College. For more information contact Tom Van Dusen, farm show general manager at 613-445-3407 or R0011447869/0614

In establishing Agriculture More Than Ever, it’s striving to underline what it sees as a bright future for Canadian agriculture through success stories about industry members. The program organizers will have information pam-

phlets, tee-shirts, caps and other merchandise available at the 2013 show. Directors made several other decisions concerning the 86th farm show, including confirmation of a quilt display along with annual regional 4-H exhibits and an antique section provided by Vintage Iron and Traditions of Eastern Ontario. Regional seed judging preceding the show will take place at the Greely Community Centre from 8:30 to 3 p.m. on March 9. Winners will be on display at the show and will receive awards March 13. As for commercial booths, the show will be full with 350 exhibitors and at least 20 applications remaining on the waiting list. In other business, the

EMC news - Two stimulating agricultural projects will receive special attention at the 2013 Ottawa Valley Farm Show set for March 12 to 14 at the Ernst & Young Centre (formerly CE Centre) beside the Ottawa International Airport. At its recent regular meeting, the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association, which has sponsored the farm show for the past 86 years, decided to help celebrate this year’s 100th anniversary of 4-H Canada and to promote “Agriculture More Than Ever” (AMTE), a program created by Farm Credit Canada. Both initiatives will receive free display space at the show. Seed Growers’ president Bruce Hudson said both were worthy of support because of the positive perspective they place on Ontario and Canadian agriculture. Active in 4-H leadership, Hudson noted the association already spends thousands of dollars every year to fund 4-H regional programming, including providing booth space and related services at the annual farm show. After listing several 100th anniversary activities that will take place this year, Tammy Oswick-Kearney, 4-H Canada special projects officer, told the meeting it could turn out that the launch of the Ontario part of the celebration

Greely resident Ken Tasker braved some of the coldest weather Ottawa has faced in years on Jan. 23 to flood the Greely community rink in time for the weekend’s carnival.


EMC news - You know what they say: when life gives you really cold weather, make ice. That’s exactly what Ken Tracker was thinking on Jan. 23, when temperatures dipped to -25 C (-31 C with the wind chill) and most residents holed up inside rather than face the frosty outdoors. Tasker instead pulled on


like many, he grew up playing hockey and for 10 years competed in several minor pro leagues, including the American Hockey League. With that in mind, Tasker said the fact that he has never actually built or maintained a rink doesn’t matter much. “I’ve never made ice, but I know good ice from bad ice,” he said. Once the ice is in, Tasker said he’ll need a team of dedicated volunteers to help him flood and clear the rink throughout the season. Tasker, who moved to Greely about a year ago, said he has “such aspirations for the rink.” One day he wants to have proper snow removal equipment and a real garage for

a heavy parka, snowpants, heavy duty winter boots and a furry trapper’s hat and headed down to the Greely Community Centre to flood the rink. He had noticed the week before that the rink wasn’t being maintained, despite it being the middle of winter. “I couldn’t understand why,” Tasker said. “It’s such a beautiful facility.” When he realized it was only iceless because no one had volunteered, he took on the job. He was hoping to have a solid base in place before the Greely Winter Carnival’s biggest days on Saturday, Jan. 26 and Sunday, Jan. 27. Tasker knows the importance of a community rink;

Police reach out to Muslim community Eddie Rwema

have had a terrible experiences with police officers in their home countries. The message to them from the police was for them to feel comfortable and to call police every time they feel they need help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to enhance the relationship, work with the Muslim community, ensure we live in a safe secure community and the police canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that alone,â&#x20AC;? said Bordeleau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need the entire com-

munity, including the Muslims, to be there with us and to work in collaboration on different things to make our community safe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want us to be more visible and they want to trust us,â&#x20AC;? said Bordeleau. Jalil Marhnouj, vice president of the Assunnah Muslims Association (AMA), said meetings like this will help build that trust and relationship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are inviting them to

The dialogue was part of the Ottawa policeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Partnership in Action series, a framework for public consultation and wider engagement. The program aims to identify and build on community engagement within policing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of wealth of knowledge out in our communities that we need to tap into,â&#x20AC;? said West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry, who is also chairman of the Ottawa Police Services Board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are trying to let them know that this is their police. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to fear them.â&#x20AC;?


EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Ottawa Police Service is reaching out to the Muslim community with hopes of building relationships and trust. Police Chief Charles Bordeleau and a team of police officers met with members of the Muslim community on Jan. 24 in an effort to create a dialogue that focuses on mutual interests.

Chief Bordeleau hailed the good relationship that exists between the police and the community, but added that it can always be better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is crucial for us. We live in a very diverse community and for us to be effective we need to build relationships,â&#x20AC;? he said. One of the major challenges facing the police service is gaining trust among the Muslim community, many oh whom are newcomers who

come to us so that we can get to know each other,â&#x20AC;? he said. While the relationship is good, Marhnouj said they want to build on that momentum going forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of newcomers get scared when they are approached by police officers, because of the police background where they come from. We want to break that myth here,â&#x20AC;? said Marhnouj. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives us an opportunity to have a conversation and learn more about the Muslim community and for them to know more about us,â&#x20AC;? said Bordeleau.

Pirates to invade Osgoode stage Emma Jackson

EMC news - A young pirate crew will make port in Osgoode this February, bringing a touch of the exotic to the dead of winter. Twenty-four youth from grades 3 to 9 will run the gamut from pirate rogue to reputable navy captain in Pirates of the Curry Bean, play-

ing at Osgoode Public School on Feb. 7 and 8. The musical is presented by Stage!, a children’s theatre based in Osgoode village. While founders Christina Leese and Kerri Rossiter usually write their own material, this time they purchased the rights to the British musical comedy written by Craig Hawes. Leese said the story cap-

tures the imagination immediately - and is especially fun for the kids on stage. “Kids love playing that kind of role,” she said. “It’s the ultimate dress-up. Pirates are rough and gruff. The kids could really let their imaginations go.” The play follows young siblings Jack and Liza Periwinkle, who yearn for adventure.


Pirates invade the local watering hole in the opening scenes of Pirates of the Curry Bean, playing at Osgoode Public School Feb. 7 and 8.


Mackenzie Langdon, or Captain Redbeard, will take the stage with Myhkaila Cushing (Admiral Hornhonker) and Jacop Hope (Captain Cod) on Feb. 7 and 8 in Osgoode. Angie Robinson and Courtney Shannon-Caines, front, will offer some comic relief.

When they find a real life treasure map, they set sail with their cat for adventure on the high seas, and end up on the island of Lumbago in the sea of Sciatica. There, they meet swashbuckling pirates from the pirate ship Curry Bean, loveable rogues Scuttle and Slack, and the sailors of the king’s navy on the HMS Crunchy Frog. “It’s based on ye olde England,” Leese said, who added that rehearsing for the play has doubled as a history lesson for the kids, who have

countless questions about the time of real pirates. She said the play is one of the most complex the organization has ever attempted. “This is a very complicated play compared to others we’ve approached,” Leese said. “Timing’s really important; there will be jokes and banter between actors. It’s hard enough with adults let alone with kids.” At a dress rehearsal on Jan. 24, actors practiced their swordfighting and banter on stage.

Leese is confident the complexity will only make the performance better. “We’ve got a good crew, literally. We’ve got some really good talent,” she said. For the first time, students come from schools across the region, she said. Tickets are $5 at the door or through Rossiter, who can be reached at 613-826-0725. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the performances begin at 7 p.m. For more information visit

Pet Adoptions


Capt. Zorro



Meet Patch! A neutered male, white and black American Bulldog and Labrador Retriever mix who is about 11 months old. He was transferred to the Ottawa Humane Society from another shelter on January 17, and is now available for adoption! Patch loves to play with toys, especially those with a squeaker! He is a big, strong boy full of energy that would love a home with another dog that loves to play! He would benefit from an owner with a lot of confidence. Patch is eager to please and is able to respond to firm commands; he would love a family that would actively participate with him in obedience classes! If you think either of these animals are the right pet for your family, contact the ottawa Humane Society today!

Meet Capt. Zorro, a neutered male, white and black Domestic short hair cat, who is about 6 months old. He was transferred to the Ottawa Humane Society from another shelter on January 15, and is now available for adoption! Capt. Zorro loves to jump up on your shoulders for extra cuddles! He has a curious streak and loves to know what you are up to. He is looking for a forever home with a feline friend who is okay with rough house playing. 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.

Have you ever noticed a frightened looking cat or dog wandering around a neighbourhood or hanging around your home? Many people find themselves in similar situations and don’t know what to do. What’s the best way to help that animal? First, assess the situation. Does the animal seem injured? If so, call the Ottawa Humane Society emergency line at 613-725-1532. However, if the animal doesn’t appear to be in immediate distress, you can deliver the animal to the City of Ottawa Municipal Animal Shelter, which is run by and located at the Ottawa Humane Society. If the animal is a dog, you can contact the city’s bylaw department to have the dog picked up. The Municipal Animal Shelter, or MAS, is run by the Ottawa Humane Society on behalf of the City of Ottawa. The MAS cares for injured, lost and homeless animals brought in by City of Ottawa Bylaw Officers or the general public, or picked up in cases of injury or emergency by the Ottawa Humane Society’s Rescue and Investigation Services. While they are at the MAS, the Lost and Found Department works hard to reunite each lost pet with its owner. Each year, the MAS cares for thousands of stray animals. When you bring an animal to the MAS, you will need to provide information about where and when you found the animal. The staff will then check the animal for identification (microchip,

tattoos and tags) and will search the lost reports on file. Stray animals are kept at the MAS for three business days, after which they become the property of the OHS. This period does not include day of entry, Sundays or holidays. The holding time gives the owner several days to claim their lost pet and gives staff time to try to find the animal’s owner. A stray pet becomes the property of the Ottawa Humane Society if its owner does not claim it within the holding period. It will be temperament tested and health-checked to assess its suitability for adoption. If the animal is healthy and friendly, then it is made available for adoption at the end of the holding period. You can ask shelter staff to give you the stray animal’s shelter number, and you can call or email to inquire about the animal’s status. If you are interested in adopting the animal, you will need to fill out an adoption questionnaire in order to determine if your family is a good match for the animal. While you may want to keep the stray animal you have found, the owner may be searching for their lost pet! Don’t assume that just because you haven’t seen a “lost” poster, the owner isn’t looking for their pet. The animal may have been missing for a long time, or it may be a long way from home. It is your legal responsibility to take all reasonable steps to find the animal’s owner.

My name is Rosie. I’m a purebred schnauzer and I was born on Valentine’s Day almost 8 years ago. I like to play fetch with my favorite “mouse” and play tug of war with it too. In summer I like to sit in the back yard and say hi (bark) to all the neighbors as they jog by the path in the back. In winter my favorite thing to do is go for an off-leash walk at Conroy Pit and then come home and sit in front of the fireplace until I start panting and have to be told to move away from the heat of the fireplace to drink some water. My favorite food is raw broccoli, especially the stalks because they are nice and crunchy. Snow peas are nice too. And I like to bury my large kibble treats among the couch cushions in the living room but my parents don’t like me to.

Taurus, someone you know may feel like he or she deserves something that you have. Do not validate any jealousy and take the higher road by not engaging the situation. Gemini, provide a steady and strong hand to keep someone you love on the right track. It may not be easy to be so supportive, but do what’s necessary to help a loved one. Cancer, although you are very persuasive this week, you should focus all of your attention on selling yourself to others in the workplace. This can make promotion imminent. Leo, you might sense that something isn’t quite right this week with a couple of people you know. Don’t be shy about asking questions to get to the bottom of the situation.

Even a minor disagreement could have you licking your wounds, Aquarius. Don’t use this week for sulking. Get back on the horse and dust yourself off. Pisces, avoid potentially sticky situations this week. It is better to defer to an expert even if it means making a financial investment.
