Liveable Ottawa promises zoning certainty: mayor Laura Mueller

EMC news - The city is asking for residents’ help tackling 12 planning issues as it looks to build a “liveable” city in the future. The city launched its massive master planning review on Jan. 29 with two meetings at city hall that outlined challenges – and ideas – to create a Liveable Ottawa. “Certainty” was the name of the game when it came to zoning, with both the mayor and planning committee chairman

Coun. Peter Hume repeatedly insisting that the review will result in a zoning bylaw that matches and implements the policies outlined in the Official Plan. “Providing certainty for the community and the development industry is a theme you’ve heard me talking about a lot in the past year,” Hume said. “Our refreshed Official Plan will be more prescriptive than ever before in terms of where the vision for height and density is in this city. … (planning manager John) Moser and his staff are com-

mitted to bringing forward the necessary zoning bylaws in 2014 that will implement these height permissions such that there is absolute certainty for all and fewer disparities between the Official Plan and the zoning bylaw.” It’s something community associations have been clamoring for. Essentially, it would mean that the rules for what can be built on parcels of land across the city and what sorts of uses those properties can feature would match the goals and larger vision for the city that’s set out in its Official Plan. Right now, there is so much discrepancy between the ideals in the Official Plan and the actual rules governing the zoning that the leeway often leads to spot rezoning of properties that community members often feel aren’t in line with the goals the city has set out for itself.

Trivia hardly trivial for rural support group Emma Jackson

EMC news - Shiverfest continues to spread the warmth of generosity, raising $2,894 and counting for a local charity. Manotick’s annual winter carnival ran for three days over the Jan. 26 weekend, raising money all the while for Rural Ottawa South Support Services. The organization is based in Dickinson Square and delivers meals on wheels and other community services for seniors and adults with physical disabilities in the RideauOsgoode area. Profits from the week-

end’s popular chili cookoff, trivia afternoon, raffles and silent auctions all went toward the total, as well as donations collected at free events throughout the weekend. Saturday’s chili cook-off raised $503, and the silent auction and raffle raised $915. But it was the trivia contest at the Mill Tavern on Sunday afternoon that took fundraising over the top, with $1,165 profit from ticket sales alone. Another $50 was raised in donations. “The trivia was the main source of revenue,” said organizer Jan Hynes. See SHIVERFEST, page 5

Community groups could see councillor funding dry up Limits on councillors’ office budget donations under discussion

Green InItIatIves In Ottawa By Jim Watson

As City Council enters its third year we can look back on years one and two and be proud of what we have accomplished. One file where I am particularly proud is the work we have done to make Ottawa a greener city. Some highlights include: • After years of fits and starts we signed the agreement that will bring Light Rail Transit (LRT) to Ottawa and reduce the number of cars and buses on the road. • This $2.1 billion project will make it easier to get around our growing city and when completed the redesigned transit system will save the City up to $100 million in annual operating costs, while eventually reducing our carbon emissions by some 94,000 tonnes. • We have implemented weekly green bin collection and biweekly garbage collection, which means 20% fewer collection vehicles on the road and savings of $10 million per year. • While it is still early in the program, initial results for November and December of 2012 show a significant increase in diversion rates since the start of bi-weekly collection. • We have also distributed 7,000 new green bins to residences in the rural areas of Ottawa, making it a truly city-wide program. • 2012 saw the lowest level of combined sewer overflows into the Ottawa River in years as the first phases of the Ottawa River Action cut overflows by 82% since 2006. • We are continuing with our Green Fleet strategy and in 2012 the City of Ottawa won the Green Fleet Award that is presented annually by Fleet Challenge Ontario. • Last year we stepped up the fight against the Emerald Ash Borer with the approval of a $1 million investment in additional funds and we added even more funding in the 2013 budget. Ottawa is also now one of only two cities in Ontario to test a new form of injection against EAB – Confidor.

EMC news - City councillors have begun to warn community groups that their ability to donate money from their office budgets to community events may soon be limited. There is no firm proposal yet, but councillors say Mayor Jim Watson is proposing a cap on how much of their office budget councillors are allowed to donate to community causes, as well as limits on how involved municipal elected officials can be in the financial side of community events. Donations and sponsorships are allowed under the current rules and the online office expense disclosure forms include a section for councillors to list the amount of donations they doled out. Typical donations include things like membership to the local legion branch, sponsorship of a winter carnival, donations to food banks and the purchase of gift certificates as prizes for community events. “Obviously that’s an area of concern to councillors because that’s part of our role – to promote events and showcase our communities,” said Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley. “That said, there are examples, shall we say, where someone may get the wrong perception of what’s going on … I don’t believe we should be handling all the money for

the events.” Hubley rarely gives donations from his office budget, he said, because he doesn’t want his residents to “get the wrong impression” of the way he spends their tax dollars on their behalf. The policy would be part of a code of conduct that’s being developed to build on the work of the city’s new integrity commissioner; efforts that include the lobbyist registry. The proposal would put more parameters around how that office budget could be spent. Each councillor received $234,000 in 2012 to spend on office supplies and staffing, as well as community events, donations and sponsorships. “As of right now, there is no definition as to how our office money should be spent,” said Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt. Bob Brocklebank of the Federation of Citizens Associations said anything to make council more transparent is a good thing, but a lack of flexibility in this case could be detrimental to community involvement. The availability and use of councillors’ office-budget funds varies widely across the different wards, but that money is often used to rent space for community events and more importantly, community meetings, Brocklebank said. Allowing flexibility in how councillors spend their allot-

• We ordered new O Trains that will allow us to effectively double the service time on this increasingly used system. Modifications to the tracking will be done in 2013 to prepare for the arrival of the new trains. • We will complete putting into service the new double-decker buses at OC Transpo that will move more people, more efficiently and sustainably. • In the first quarter of this year the City will host a roundtable to review the way forward for our Air Quality and Climate Change Management Plan and GHG control in our city. • Ottawa’s drinking water systems earned a perfect inspection record for the third year in a row. This is only a sampling of the work we are doing to make Ottawa greener. The work will be hard as the problems are great but we owe it to the residents of today and the children of tomorrow to do all we can make Ottawa a more environmentally friendly place.

ment means there are more funds available to encourage community engagement, Brocklebank said, adding he doesn’t think councillors should be proud if they make a point of avoiding donations. “It is on the public consultation side that I am concerned about the limitations that this might bring,” Brocklebank said. “Sometimes you go out and fix problems that don’t exist.” Changing a practice that residents support and no one is complaining about doesn’t make much sense, Moffatt said. He keeps his own “mental cap” on spending; he won’t give out more than $10,000 of his office budget per year to community causes. Supporting community causes with tax dollars collected from citizens makes sense, Moffatt said. The councillor said he tends not to organize or run community events because there is a large number of active groups

in his ward. Instead, he contributes money to rent space or back community-led events in other ways. “I like to be able to support them so that they can do community-oriented events that build community spirit and help bring the community together,” he said. “That’s what our job is … to support our communities and make our communities grow.” Watson’s office budget is $778,000, but Hubley said the mayor’s budget wasn’t proposed to be subject to the same rules. That concerned the Kanata South councillor, who said any policy should apply equally to all members of council, including the mayor. Watson’s press secretary, Ryan Kennery, said in an email it would be premature for the mayor to discuss the proposal. The policy proposal is expected to be announced in March, Kennery said.


• We installed an electric vehicle charging station at City Hall in partnership with Hydro Ottawa allowing us to collect valuable data on the demand and cost-efficiency of this technology and purchased a Chevrolet Volt for the City’s fleet. • We have continued with the expansion of cycling infrastructure across the City and our Council has invested a record $26 million into this effort over the course of our mandate.

Dickinson Street gets rightful name on city maps Emma Jackson

EMC news - The city is updating its internal maps to make sure one of the oldest streets in Manotick is labelled correctly. On some city maps, Dickinson Street in front of Watson’s Mill is called Mill Street, or has no name at all, according to city planner Jeff Ostafichuk. Although sign posts in the area mark Dickinson correctly, several village residents have complained about the error, which shows up sometimes when city staff bring printed maps to public meetings. Ostafichuk said it’s being fixed now before the village enters into its secondary plan review this year. “It’s important that when

they’re looking at the secondary plan that everything is up to date,” Ostafichuk said. “Referring to an improper street name could bring a conformity issue forward.” Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt agreed. “People didn’t think much of it (before), but with documents to be approved by council it’s more important,” Moffatt said. Some of the confusion comes from the awkward street configuration around Dickinson Square. Mill Street runs east-west on the southern side of the square, and hits the northsouth section of Dickinson Street just below Watson’s Mill. But Dickinson then takes a severe jig to the right, curving in front of the mill and

continuing to Bridge Street. Any non-villager looking at a blank map would label the curved portion of Dickinson as Mill Street, because it’s the natural continuation of that road. “Most of the mapping shows Mill Street at one point, and then there’s no street name where it runs in front of Watson’s Mill,” Ostafichuk said. “People have assumed that it’s just Mill Street.” Dickinson used to be called Elizabeth Street until the 1970s, when the Rideau Township council decided to change the name because there was already an Elizabeth Avenue behind what is now Manotick Public School. They chose to name the street after Moss Kent Dickinson, founder of Manotick and the mill.

again planting enough trees to remain Canada’s first and only carbon neutral radio station. Live 88.5 FM, an alternative rock station based in Ottawa, will plant 5,700 trees this spring in the township of Beckwith in partnership with the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation. For the past three years, the station has donated enough trees to absorb the carbon emissions from the office’s annual energy consumption as well as travel and commuting for 35 staff members. Morning show host Andre “Katfish” Morgan said the station has been keen to go green since it began in 2005. “We identified years ago that this was something that was important to our audience,” Morgan said. “The same people that enjoy smart, modern music and information also care about the planet.” He said the station has become increasingly environmentally conscious as staff continue to participate in the tree planting program. It’s hard to find a scrap piece of paper around the office these days, he said, because everything is done on-

Foster Family Month

We have a great selection of dishes to satisfy your tastes!

With family day just around the corner, we’re reminded of the importance of families and family life. Many of us spend the day enjoying quality time with our families, possibly skating on the canal or hosting a special dinner. At the end of the day, family day marks a time to appreciate the important people in our lives, our children, parents, relatives and friends. This day acts as a reminder of how fortunate we are everyday to have a circle of individuals in which we can surround ourselves. Sadly, this is the not the case for many children and youth in our community, which is why the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is dedicating the month of February to foster families.

they live. The calculation to become carbon neutral asks that the company plant the number of trees that it will take to absorb that year’s carbon in 80 years, Cooper said. So far Live 88.5 has reforested about eight hectares of the Ottawa Valley. According to a statement, the trees not only absorb greenhouse gas but also produce life-giving oxygen, clean the area’s water supplies, provide wildlife habitat, buffer noise and wind, improve the soil and reduce soil erosion. “Collectively, they make the Ottawa area less vulnerable to the worst effects of unpredictable and unseasonal heavy storms and increasing summer droughts,” the statement said. The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation is a registered charity to protect and conserve the lands and waters the Rideau River watershed. To participate in the forestry program call 613-6923571.

line. The station also sold its H2 Hummer and used the money to finance planting trees. The conservation authority’s forestry program manager Dan Cooper said Live 88.5 has set a high standard for businesses in Ottawa, and others are beginning to follow their lead. “Businesses are getting on board more and more,” Cooper said. “Some will do it because of the carbon, some will do it because it just seems like the right thing to do.” The 5,700 trees will be a mix of about 30 species including white pine, white spruce, white cedar and red pine. The seedlings are grown at a nursery in Kemptville and will be planted by contractors rather than volunteers. “As much as we love the volunteer side, we’re more committed to the trees surviving,” Cooper said, explaining that the trees need to be planted properly and have multiple follow-ups to ensure

We all remember what it’s like to be a teenager and how hard it can be to simply fit in. Imagine going through this time without parental support. When matching youth with foster parents, consideration is always given to qualities such as personality, culture and ethnicity. These familiar traits are important in helping youth feel comfortable, safe and secure in their temporary surroundings. CASO is very fortunate to have many loving and devoted foster families open their hearts and their homes. They provide parental guidance and support youth desperately need. Our foster parents are from all walks of life; they are single or partnered, retired or at home and from diverse backgrounds. These individuals provide a supporting home environment for youth who have been temporarily removed from their home. The care is typically for a short period of time, while CASO work with the natural parent(s) to improve the home conditions or an alternate living arrangement is made within the child’s own extended family or community. Regardless of the time period, foster parents play a vital role in the life of a youth.

Matt Hines and Layne Belcher, son of Ottawa Rough Riders player and founder of the Lonestar restaurant chain Val Belcher, won by a landslide. Belcher said it was the toppings that clinched them top spot; the pair made blue corn tortillas, avocado mash, queso fresca and pickled radish to complement their chili base. “We just put all these flavours together,” Belcher said. Although Belcher was born in Manotick, he said Texan food is in his blood. “My whole family’s from Texas, and we have a restaurant background,” he said. Still, the new chili champion has hometown pride. “We’re honoured, being local boys.”

She added that the event costs next to nothing because prizes and event space are all donated. “At a lot of trivia contests there’s a big prize, so that brings the crowds out. But the crowds come to this because of the charity that we’re supporting,” Hynes said. “They come to have a fun afternoon but also to support such a worthy organization.” Don Slack, executive director of ROSSS, said he was “blown away” by the total, which doesn’t include profits from a pancake breakfast hosted by the Manotick Kiwanis. “It’s a lot more than what we expected,” Slack said. “I thought that was just amazing.” Slack said donations like this keep client fees low, which in turn helps seniors stay in their own homes longer. “One of the cornerstones of sustainable healthcare in Ontario is keeping people out of long-term care beds,” he said. “Without (donations from) those people and those organizations, the client fees would go up and we just wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.” Hynes said several new events were surprisingly popular, including the open mic night at the Mill Tavern on Saturday, which was packed. A figure skating exhibition by the Rideau Skating Club was also a hit, and had a positive impact on the bonfire outside the arena. “It brought people out; there were more people at the bonfire than usual,” said Hynes. She said the planning committee hopes to work with the skating club again next year. Only the band night at the arena on Saturday night was a disappointment. The teen event invites local bands to amp it up at the Manotick arena, but this year’s event had a much lower turnout. Hynes said the committee will have to decide how to change the event to attract bigger crowds in the future. She is also already working on new ideas

for next year’s carnival, including a possible toboggan race and partnerships with local sports groups. “Every year we just try to make it more inclusive of businesses and organizations,” she said.

Ramp up the romance this Valentine’s Day Watson’s Mill hosts port and chocolate tasting Emma Jackson

EMC news - Few drinks are better suited to the bleak mid-winter than port, and few foods represent the essence of romance quite like chocolate. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Watson’s Mill will marry these age-old favourites during a romantic port tasting and chocolate pairing on Friday, Feb. 8. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., chocolate expert Lori Savignac will expose the tempestuous flavours of the world’s best comfort food to the mysterious moods of specially chosen fortified wines. Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy tapas and dessert from Manotick’s French Cafe. Savignac will

deliver romantic readings and trivia. Event organizer Melanie Parker said the event is perfectly timed to chase away any winter blues while ramping up the romance in time for Valentine’s Day. “Anything that breaks up the winter is good because the days are dark and gloomy,â€? Parker said. “Valentine’s Day is also a nice idea, so drawing off of that is nice. People like the idea of Valentine’s Day.â€? She said the readings and trivia won’t be overly risque, but the event is 19-plus because they will be serving alcohol. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at Watson’s Mill Office, French CafĂŠ, or Manotick Office Pro. Parker said port is wellsuited for tastings at this time of year because of its wintery feel. “It’s dark and mysterious,â€? she said. The mill is located at 5525 Dickinson St. in Manotick.

Happy birthday, Lenny! Grade 2 student Kate Boase gives Lenny the Lion a big birthday hug on Jan. 29, when St. Leonard Elementary School in Manotick celebrated its mascot’s birthday with a Hawaiian party and cupcakes. Students dressed up in their best Hawaiian-style clothes, beating the cold weather with sunglasses, floppy hats and grass skirts. Throughout the day, each class visited the school library to personally wish the friendly lion a happy birthday and collect their special snack.

“We are getting better at smart growth and we are doing it together (with developers), but there is still more to do,” Watson said. He said public interest and participation in the process is essential. “We want to ensure Ottawa remains a vibrant, dynamic and affordable city for years to come,” Watson said, adding that the review will help “unlock the potential of the city.” Affordability will be a fundamental part of that, the mayor said. The city only has limited means to pay for new facilities that population growth demands. Interested citizens can find detailed information online at There, people can fill out an online survey and sign up for alerts about future public meetings. Updating the entire suite of master plans in one go is a rare opportunity that will help the city ensure the plans all work together towards common goals, the mayor said. “For the first time in many years, the stars are aligned at the same time,” he said. Some things you won’t see changed are policies for environmental protection, affordable housing or built heritage, Hume said. For the most part, those policies are working well so the city won’t be touching them up.

Limit councillors’ access to public purse


policy to limit councillors’ ability to dole out money to community groups is a welcome proposal coming out of the mayor’s office. Currently, it’s just an idea being floated around the council table by Mayor Jim Watson, but a policy is expected to be introduced sometime in March. At least one city councillor is already warning community groups in his ward that

the policy would limit their ability to donate money from their office budget to support community events. On the face of it, the policy sounds negative, resulting in less funding for the dozens of grassroots organizations that provide unpaid support services throughout the city. But limiting a councillor’s spending powers doesn’t necessarily mean the money won’t be spent where it’s needed. Just who’s doing the

spending – as it stands, a councillor can take a chunk of money from their office budget – funds provided by taxpayers – to arbitrarily dole out cash to groups of their choosing. Typical donations include things like membership to the local legion branch, sponsorship of a winter carnival, donations to food banks and the purchase of gift certificates as prizes for community events. Don’t get us wrong. We are in no way suggesting

that a donation to the local food bank is a bad idea; we are simply questioning the optics of how the money is spent and how the decision is made. Giving councillors arbitrary access to the public purse offers the opportunity for inequalities in support given to groups and associations from ward to ward. One councillor may choose to spend $10,000 while another may limit their donations to less than $2,000.

We aren’t questioning the morals or ethics of individual councillors, simply the equity of an arbitrary system that invites unfair distribution of funds and the use of public money to in effect campaign for re-election. True, part of a councillor’s role is to promote events and showcase communities, but, as Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley suggests, “I don’t believe we should be handling the money for the events.” Hubley said he rarely gives donations from his office budget because he doesn’t want to give the wrong impression. We couldn’t agree more

– the obvious impression is that the receiver of the money owes the sender gratitude, which they may choose to repay in the form of support during the next election. Watson’s proposal would be part of a code of conduct that’s being developed to build on the work of the city’s new integrity commissioner, such as the lobbyist registry. We suggest the city create a new mechanism to provide support for community groups, such as giving the responsibility to a department. Council could always allow councillors to highlight events and community groups in need of support.


After Dalton, a culture war? CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


t’s going to take a little getting used to not having the premier of Ontario living in our town. There’s a lot of advantages to it, not least of which is having someone at Queen’s Park who knows Ottawa exists. That hasn’t always been the case. It’s a pretty big city, Ottawa, but a bit far from Toronto. The reviews on Dalton McGuinty’s tenure as premier have been mixed. The consensus seems to be that he did quite well, but his last few months didn’t do him credit. In Ottawa we knew him as sort of a clunky guy, not a smooth politician, but a person we could be comfortable with. That might explain how he got elected six times as an MPP, three times as premier. McGuinty’s last election was a minority win, which means the opposition parties are looking forward with some relish to the next election. What kind of an election will that be? Could it be different from what we have seen — mild-mannered affairs in which ideology plays a minimal role and the parties cluster into the centre? What observers now fear is a culture war, of the kind we have seen recently in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in Canadian federal politics. In a culture war, the two sides are bitterly divided. Rather than cluster into the centre, they diverge widely and bitterly. They are divided not only on political issues, but on personal beliefs and patterns of behaviour. The stage is set for it, that’s for sure.

One of the two leading parties is led by a businessman from Fort Erie, with a traditional marriage; the other is led by a community activist from Toronto, who is a lesbian. So there you have it: big city versus small town, man versus woman, old values versus new values, traditional marriage versus same-sex marriage, businessman versus activist, Barrhaven versus the Glebe. People have talked about this kind of divergence in recent federal elections, with the Harper Conservatives, the hockey fans, versus the Ignatieff Liberals, the Chardonnay-sipping intellectuals. Tim Hortons versus Starbucks. The notion of a culture war is supported by the breakdown of the vote: Ignatieff’s main strength was in downtown Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver; Harper won the small towns and the suburbs. So is that what we have to look forward to when Ontario goes to the polls? Probably not. Because we are more complex than that. Our downtown intellectuals like hockey. There are opera fans in small towns, book clubs in Carleton Place. Barrhaven has a Starbucks, Tim Hortons has Wi-Fi, McDonald’s has lattes. We are all moving closer together. We all see basically the same TV and get the same Internet. Isolation is a thing of the past and differences no longer shock us. Even the gay factor is far less of an issue than it might have been 10 years ago. Small town parents have children with gay friends. It’s not a big deal. Certainly you won’t hear anything about it from the opposition party leaders in the next election campaign. Whatever their private views they know that the biggest political risk is in appearing to be intolerant. It’s pretty hard to wage a culture war under those circumstances. It will likely be just another boring old election, fought on the usual issues, which is not that bad a thing.

Recognize signs of trouble at school News Canada

EMC news - For parents, recognizing that their child might be struggling in school is not always easy. According to the education experts at Oxford Learning, there are five main signs to watch for: • Children making comments such as: “the teacher picks on meâ€?, “do I have to go to school today?â€?, or “this as-

signment is pointless.â€? • Daily homework not being completed. • Assignments and projects missed completely or submitted late. • Poor test scores and poor grades on projects and assignments. • Disinterest in school and school-related activities. Oxford Learning founder and CEO Dr. Nick White“That was way to easy!â€?

Linda Pandel is currently staying at the Ottawa General Hospital while she waits for a transfer to Toronto for a double lung transplant. Her daughter Marissa Pandel, right, is planning a fundraising event at the Osgoode Legion on Feb. 16.

“I can't believe I saved so much... �

EMC news - Since Linda Pandel checked herself into the Ottawa General Hospital in November, she’s only been out one day – and she’s got a long road ahead of her. The 50-year-old Metcalfe hair stylist was diagnosed last December with pulmonary fibrosis, a degenerative disease causing scar tissue on the lung. Pandel started having trouble breathing in the summer. She left her salon storefront in Metcalfe and continued to work from home, on Grey’s Creek Road. But her breathing didn’t improve, and X-rays couldn’t detect the problem. She was scheduled for a biopsy in mid-November, but when she went in several days early for blood work, doctors decided she was too sick to leave. Doing a biopsy requires collapsing the lung in a controlled manner; but the one day she left the hospital, her lung collapsed again and she was re-admitted. Her other lung has a leak and also needs to be replaced. Pandel is now at the Ottawa hospital, waiting for a bed to open up at Toronto General where she will live until she receives a double lung transplant. The wait is about six months on average, and she’ll have to stay in the Toronto area for another three months after her surgery. In the meantime, bills will pile up. To help Pandel stay afloat, her daughter Marissa Pandel and several friends are planning a fundraising dinner and games night at the Osgoode Legion on Feb. 16. “She was self-employed ... so she doesn’t qualify for social assistance,� said Marissa, who added that, as a single mother, there’s no other in-

Flying high after 59 years Couple takes pragmatic approach to love Emma Jackson

EMC news - For newlyweds celebrating their first Valentine’s Day this February, building a marriage that will last 60 years may seem a daunting task. Depending when you tie the knot and your philosophy on commitment, many couples just won’t make it to such a major milestone. For Nicky and Ted Slack, however, a healthy dose of pragmatism has gotten them through 59 years of marriage and counting. “When you got married, you stayed married,” remembered Nicky, 77, as she sipped a coffee beside her 81-year-old husband at the Orchard View living centre in Manotick Station. “Through bad times you just persevered. We had a lot more good times, though.” The pair met in the early

1950s through the downhill ski club at the University of British Columbia, where they were both studying for undergraduate degrees. Ted had become a pilot during his time at UBC, and one of their very first dates was a flight in a bush plane to drop luggage and food into a ski camp. It was Nicky’s first time in a plane; Ted only had 41 hours of flying time in his log. A romance that started on the slopes and in the skies became official in 1953. The pair abandoned their degrees to get married, and Ted began working for the Canadian Pacific railway in northern Quebec. Today, a girl Nicky’s age she was not yet 20 when they married - might say she was foolish to give up her education for marriage. On the contrary, Nicky said. She was studying bacteriology, and has never regretted leaving the lab. “I would have ended up sitting in front of a microscope by myself,” she said. “Instead I did retail, which I loved. I needed the people. It’s a good thing I didn’t finish.”

Emma Jackson/Metroland

Ted and Nicky Slack have spent their 59 years of marriage living around the country and flying small planes to their Caribbean vacations. It wasn’t long before the couple faced their first obstacle. Living in Quebec, Ted was away for weeks at a time while Nicky stayed home with their two young children. Along with loneliness, Nicky said there was also an element of resentment when Ted showed up outside his scheduled weekend visits. She filled her days with church group outings and volunteer work, and when Ted came home unannounced it threw off the life she had made for herself. “If Ted came home unex-

pectedly, I already had plans,” she said. “You could get resentful, it’s like ‘Stay away. Only come home when you’re supposed to.’” After several years, the family moved to Calgary so Ted could finish his degree in the early 1960s. Aerospace engineering degree in hand, the family settled in Ottawa as Ted took a job at the National Research Council at the end of the decade. They built a house in Kars, a task Nicky said was the toughest they had ever faced. “We ran out of money and

we struggled through that,” she said. “That was the hardest part.” But that’s where the pragmatism came in. Building a life, the Slacks knew, requires effort, dedication and commitment. Their marriage was happy because they worked hard to keep it that way, Nicky said. “Anybody who says marriage is 50/50 is full of prunes. It’s 100/100,” Nicky said. “You’ve got to be willing to pick your battles and give in when you have to.” Of course, their marriage

has been filled with joyful and exciting moments, too. Soaring high in the sky with Ted at the helm became a lifelong hobby for the couple and their family, who flew their plane to the Caribbean for vacations many times over the years. And through it all, Ted and Nicky have stuck it out and embraced their life, just as they promised 59 years ago. “You just hang in there,” Nicky said. “You can’t go in with the idea that if it doesn’t work we’ll say goodbye. You just can’t.” R0011896485

‘Best in Business’ leaders recognized in Manotick Staff

EMC news - Five business leaders have proven there’s more to a successful business model than a healthy bottom line. The entrepreneurs, who run the gamut from bank managers to cafe owners, have made it their business to support the community they serve, and for that they all received Diamond Jubilee medals on Jan. 24. Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre presented the medals, of which 60,000 are being awarded across the country to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th year on the throne. He has been awarding his allotment of medals thematically and chose on Jan. 24 to focus on community-minded business leaders. “Our commitment to Canada is strengthened when we collectively recognize those who distinguish themselves by virtue of their talents, generosity and service to our communities,” Poilievre said in a statement. “These individuals are among the best in business and we have all benefited from their successes; either from enjoying the services they offer or the community events and organizations which they support.” Black Dog Bistro owner Dorathea Janz was recognized

for the countless hours she spent ensuring the restaurant “reflected the vibe of the village and fit within the parameters of the building’s historical designation,” Poilievre said. Remembering that it is better to give than to receive, Janz also donates time to various boards and committees throughout the community, and represents Ottawa-area restaurants and hotels on the selection committee for the 2013 food truck and cart scene in Ottawa. Gracia Agostinho’s medal honours her success as the owner of the French Café in Manotick. Agostinho is a tireless promoter of love, peace and rock and roll, Poilievre said. She opened her cafe in 2007, bringing a European vibe to her corner of the village. When she became aware of the tragedies facing people in Haiti after several hurricanes and a massive earthquake, Agostinho, in partnership with others in the community, launched the Manotick Project for Haiti to help relieve the appalling conditions of destitute children in Haiti. The initiative provides children with nutrition and the opportunity to go to school. The scope has now grown to include agricultural development. Jeffrey Darwin was award-


Dorathea Janz, left, joins fellow Diamond Jubilee recipients Ken Ross, Jeff Darwin and Gracia Agostinho and NepeanCarleton MP Pierre Poilievre, middle, on Jan. 24 in recognition of their business success. Gordon Reid also received a medal for his community work through business, but was unable to attend the ceremony. ed his medal for his philanthropic work on behalf of Scotiabank. Born and raised in Ottawa, business was always around him, and he was inspired at a young age to continue the family tradition. Following graduation from Algonquin College and a career in financial services, Darwin joined Scotiabank 29 years ago.

The Snowsuit Fund sends warm thanks to all of the following groups, whose volunteer assistance has helped the Fund serve thousands of children in our community this year.

He now leads a 24-branch, 347-employee unit which seeks to contribute financially to important local initiatives as part of Scotiabank’s continuing goal to be socially responsible. Ken Ross, owner of Your Independent Grocer in Barrhaven, was recognized for going “beyond the call of duty,” Poilievre said. He donates time, money

Winter smells a big part of memories


he Northcote School smelled differently in the winter time than it did in the summer. That may have a lot to do with the fact Miss Crosby opened the windows in the warm weather. But I thought back then it had more to do with the piles of gum rubbers, wet socks, the wood stove and bagged lunches on the table at the back of the room. All the girls at the Northcote School wore galoshes. Some had rabbit fur down their fronts, and then some of us just had galoshes that laced up tight around our ankles. It was a sign of wealth if your galoshes had fur on them. Sadly, I never owned such a pair. The boys wore either gum rubbers or rubber boots. The gum rubbers and boots had a thick layer of red around the soles. After running around the school yard before Miss Crosby rang either the morning or recess bell, there wasn’t one of us whose feet weren’t soaked to the skin. That meant that as soon as we got into the school room, we pulled off our outer foot wear and gum rubbers, galoshes and rubber boots, which were then all laid out around the pot-bellied stove where blocks of wood had been placed to lean the footwear against. It didn’t take long with the fire roaring in the stove for the whole lot of galoshes and boots to smell to high heaven. The girls put on felt slippers, hand-made of course, and the boys just walked around in their socks, which soon smelled as bad as the boots. We girls wouldn’t dream of wearing the same stockings to school two days in a row, but from the smell of the boys’ feet, my older sister Audrey said she doubted their socks had been changed for over a week. And that included my three


brothers, who Mother thought were old enough to look after their own feet. Only a few of the pupils had tin lunch boxes. My little friend Joyce had one with a bright red painted lid, and a hook inside that anchored the little thermos bottle. Of course, Joyce’s family were very rich, I thought. Didn’t they live in a brick house and have a flush toilet? So she could afford a bright tin lunch box. However, most of us took our lunch in brown paper bags, saved after making purchases at Briscoe’s General Store. These bags once held tea, sugar, or rolled oats and were never thrown out. We had a rack in our kitchen that had a spring lever attached to it, and all the bags were neatly folded and kept on this rack which hung by the wood box. Most were just the right size for a school lunch. There was a crudely built table at the back of the school room where all the lunches were kept. All the bags looked the same and it always amazed me how I never once knew any of us to get our lunches mixed up. It was an unwritten law never to bring a sandwich with onions on it. It wouldn’t take long for the smell to fill the small one-room school house and drown out the stench of the footwear around the stove, which in retrospect might not have been such a bad idea. It didn’t take long to figure out what a lot of the pupils had brought to eat. Head cheese was a staple in the Depression years. Well seasoned with summer savoury and sliced thin, it often filled sandwiches back then. I hated head

cheese with a passion. My distaste was right up there with my hatred for blood pudding. It had more to do with watching Mother make both on the kitchen table than the taste of it that turned my stomach. My very favourite sandwich was one made with bologna. Favourite, but rare. The few slices Mother bought on rare occasions, to me, was the ultimate school lunch. I loved bologna with a passion. There were always home-made cookies, fruit was unheard of. We toted milk in glass jars. It wasn’t hard to tell who had what for their lunch. You could smell the headcheese and the maple cookies long before the paper bags were opened. Miss Crosby bent the rules at lunch time, allowing us to sit where we wanted, while she still kept an eagle eye on all of us from her desk at the front of the room. By the time the school day came to a close at four o’clock, the familiar smell of school books, chalk and erasers was long lost. The room reeked of dried out footwear, wet mitts and socks. When the last of us left the school, Miss Crosby could be seen swinging the storm and inner doors open wide and putting a block of wood against them to hold them open to complete air out the place so that by the time we next came to the Northcote School, the only smell would be from the freshlystarted wood fire raging in the old stove in the centre of the room. But like the day before, it wouldn’t take long for the smells of winter to take over.

Slow-cooked, oven-braised beef will warm a chilly day EMC Lifestyle - In this slow-cooked stew, the carrots are melt-in-your-mouth tender without being mushy. Serve with creamy mashed potatoes and a crisp green vegetable. Preparation Time: 20 minutes. Cooking Time: About four hours and 20 minutes. Serves six. INGREDIENTS

•50 ml (1/4 cup) olive oil •1 onion, thickly sliced •1.5 kg (3 lb) lean beef short ribs •2 large cloves garlic •50 ml (1/4 cup) all-purpose flour •5 ml (1 tsp) paprika •5 ml (1 tsp) dried thyme •Salt and pepper

•796 ml (28 oz/) can of diced tomatoes, undrained •5 carrots, cut in bite-size pieces •1 bay leaf •25 ml (2 tbsp) chopped fresh parsley PREPARATION

In large skillet, heat 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the oil over medium heat; cook onion for 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, remove to Dutch oven or flameproof casserole. Meanwhile, cut ribs into pieces and trim off excess fat. Cut 1 garlic clove in half; rub cut side all over ribs. In bowl or plastic bag, combine flour, paprika, half of the thyme, 5 ml (1 tsp) salt

and 2 ml (1/2 tsp) pepper; add ribs and toss to coat. Add ribs to skillet to brown in batches, adding more oil as needed and removing browned ribs to Dutch oven. Sprinkle any flour left in bowl into skillet; cook for 1 minute, stirring. Stir in tomatoes; bring to boil, scraping up any bits from bottom of pan. Add to Dutch oven. Mince both cloves of garlic; stir into Dutch oven along with carrots, bay leaf and remaining thyme. Cover tightly and bring to boil. Transfer to 140 C (275 F) oven for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Discard bay leaf. Taste and add more seasoning if needed. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.


Slice onion thinly and coarsely dice carrots. In sieve over bowl, drain liquid from tomatoes and use for another purpose. Cook onions and

brown ribs as directed, transferring both to slow-cooker. Stir in carrots, bay leaf, remaining thyme and garlic. With drained tomatoes, make sauce in skillet as directed and pour over mixture

in slow-cooker; stir to combine well. Cover and cook without stirring, on low for 10 to 12 hours or on high for five to six hours or until ribs are tender. Discard bay leaf. Garnish as directed.

Be alert to eating disorder signs EMC news - Everyday desires to look good and be in shape can slip into problem thoughts and behaviours. Here are some signs to look out for: • Excessive concern about weight, shape and calories. • Over-exercise and guilt if exercise regime is not kept. • Guilt, shame or secrecy about eating. • Strict avoidance of certain

foods, particularly those considered fattening. • Feeling fat regardless of body-size. • Weight, shape and food control determining how a person feels about their worth. HOW YOU CAN HELP

• Learn as much as possible about eating disorders. The more you know, the more you can help someone.

• Let the person know that you are concerned and are there to help them. • Focus on the person’s overall well-being, not food and their weight. • Find out what services are available in your area by calling the National Eating Disorder Information Centre. • Be patient and compassionate. Overcoming food and weight issues takes time and courage.

Hundreds walk for memories

The Sons of Scotland pipe band led the first lap around the large indoor track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like a very full house, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always room for more,â&#x20AC;? said Tracey PagĂŠ, who helped create the walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always said we hoped to be the premiere indoor event.

Team Pink takes part in the 17th-annual Walk for Memories in support of the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County on Jan. 27.


EMC news - Just under 600 participants turned out at Carleton University for the 17thannual Walk for Memories in support of the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County on Sunday, Jan. 27, raising more than $249,000 for the cause. For one Ottawa family, it was an opportunity to help others experiencing the effects of the disease.

I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there.â&#x20AC;? PagĂŠ came up with the idea when her accounting firm decided to join forces with a charitable organization. Every year, Collins Barrow is the lead sponsor and a number of employees volunteer to co-ordinate the walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get fantastic support,â&#x20AC;? said Alta Vista resident Susan Pope, with the Alzheimer Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are getting very passionate about Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease because it affects a lot of people.â&#x20AC;? All funds raised from the walk support the programs and services offered by the Alzheimer Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The success of events like this will make a huge impact on the work that we do,â&#x20AC;? said Debbie Seto, spokeswoman


her sisters. My mother was her personal caregiver for 20 years,â&#x20AC;? said Leslie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw how it changed everything.â&#x20AC;? Her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father passed away from early onset Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish my mom and family members knew the amount of support they could get,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one has to do it alone.â&#x20AC;?

All hailing from OrlĂŠans, Team Pink came decked out in neon shirts, sparkly hats and hair pieces. The amount of support available from the Alzheimer Society for families and caregivers is incredible, said Leslie, who volunteers with her husband for the organization.

Bust a move for breast cancer research Michelle Nash

Rachkowski is also the chairwoman for the Bust a Move Ottawa fundraiser, which launched its first event in March 2012, raising $350,000 for the foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to surpass that number this year,â&#x20AC;? Rachkowski said. This year, to keep a party atmosphere, celebrity guest Jenny McCarthy will be the fitness ambassador. Rach-

kowski said McCarthy will liven up the crowd, offer encouragement and lead a workout class. McCarthy will be following in fellow celebrity Richard Simmonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; footsteps who led and motivated the crowd in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted someone who would get involved and have fun,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This event is about everyone coming out

and having fun.â&#x20AC;? Each participant must raise a minimum of $1,000 to attend and the day is geared to be fun for all fitness levels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are six different fitness sessions including zumba and yoga,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fitness instructors make it easy for those who have never done it before. We are really hoping everyone gets out.â&#x20AC;? From a great Canadian

â&#x20AC;&#x153;kitchen partyâ&#x20AC;? to boxing and urban dance moves, Rachkowski promises the event will get people moving. For more information about the event, visit ottawacancer. ca or contact the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation at 613-247-3527. All the proceeds raised at the event are invested in the community to help improve regional cancer services.


EMC news - One local charity is looking to put bodies in motion in an effort to battle breast cancer. Collaborating with the St. Laurent Centre, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation will host a one-day fitness event called Bust a Move on March 2 at the Ottawa Ath-

letic Club. The event aims to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Bernice Rachkowski, marketing director for the shopping centre, was among those on hand to launch the event on Jan. 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bust a Move is not about fitness levels,â&#x20AC;? she said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about raising awareness and having funâ&#x20AC;? she said.

Slow down a little, Sagittarius. Moving faster will not get the job done to your satisfaction and then you only will have to do it all over again. Think through your options. Capricorn, shift your focus to your family for the next few days because you have to make some decisions that will affect them all. Listen to your gut feeling when making these decisions.

Virgo, sometimes you need to be tough on yourself to get things done, but you will be satisfied with the results when you push yourself. Focus on goals this week.

Scorpio, it may be challenging to find some initial support for a new idea because you are essentially charting new territory. Just give it time and people will come around.

Cancer, your mind may be churning, but worrying excessively over something will not help the situation. Therefore, focus on something else for a while. Leo, just when you think the week will go on without any excitement, something pops up and it’s just what you need to beat the doldrums. Expect time with friends.
