EMC news - Rural residents have a chance to shape their future at an upcoming public meeting to discuss the city’s official plan review. Hosted by the Manotick Village and Community Association and endorsed by Coun. Doug Thompson and Coun. Scott Moffatt, the April 9 meeting will outline the proposed changes for the city’s official plan that could

impact residents living in and around the city’s 26 villages. The city is in the process of updating its official plan, which will create a guiding document for the city’s development until 2031. The review will take place throughout the year and could affect everything from commercial development to the location of new roads. In the rural areas, residential development will be a major topic, as will transportation, said association presi-

dent Klaus Beltzner. “The idea of the meeting is to let people know what the policy proposals are, why they’re being proposed and to ask if you had a choice of developing a policy to accomplish this, what would you do differently,” Beltzner said. All community groups, residents and interested parties in Osgoode and RideauGoulbourn are invited to participate in the meeting, which will likely feature a quick introduction before break-

ing attendees into discussion groups. RESIDENTIAL CHANGES

One of the proposed changes is to extend the five-year moratorium that was placed on estate lots in 2009. Given that the city’s goal is to have 50 per cent of all rural development take place inside village boundaries, and that about 2,800 estate lot properties are still pending because applications had been filed

before the moratorium took effect, the city has more than enough estate lots available to meet demand for the next 10 years, according to a city report. The city has also classified the 26 villages into small, medium and large villages, and wants to direct two thirds of all rural development to the three largest villages: Manotick, Richmond and Greely.

What’s left of the Natural Market health food store and gluten-free bakery in Manotick glistens in the sun after being doused by firefighters in the early hours of March 18.

Manotick’s Natural Market destroyed by fire Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - A Manotick health food store has been reduced to rubble after a March 17 ďŹ re. The Ottawa ďŹ re department began receiving reports of smoke from the Natural Market building at 1140 Tighe St. around 11 p.m. Crews fought the ďŹ re for several hours. On the morning of March 18, only the shop’s eastern corner School Trustee and doorway remained, leading to a pile of rubble that glistened Zone 7 with ice from the previous evening’s dousing. A spokesperson with the ďŹ re www.markďŹ sher.org department described the building as “a complete lossâ€? with Ottawa Carleton District School Board $450,000 in damage. No one 133 Greenbank Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K2H 6L3 was injured.

been located at the nearby Manotick Mews plaza for several years before relocating to the Tighe Street location last fall in order to expand with a gluten-free bakery. The Hodge Podge Shop had been located in the adjacent vacant unit until it closed in early 2013. Manotick BIA director Donna Smith said the ďŹ re is devastating, especially in a village that prides itself on supporting local, independent businesses. “First thing this morning I drove by and it just looks so tragic,â€? Smith said. She said she’s not surprised other local business owners have been coming forward to offer their condolences. “I’m not surprised because they are all local and independent, even the landlords.

Care centre hits $100,000 goal Township of Osgoode Care Centre looking to double goal by September Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Against all odds, the Township of Osgoode Care Centre has raised $100,000 between November and March, meeting a goal staff didn’t always think was possible. Wendy Hill, the long-term care facility’s community relations director, had set the lofty goal to raise $100,000 by the end of March, but for the first few months of 2013 it didn’t look like they were going to hit their mark. Donations had slowed down after the September launch, and few major benefactors had come forward with large gifts. “But (March 19) was a magical day and we got three very healthy donations that took us over our target,� Hill said. Three individual donations totaling almost $22,000 took the fundraising total just over the $108,000 mark, Hill said. “Everybody was extremely excited and everybody shared in the happiness,� she said, noting that one resident even checks on the updated total every day. “(Residents’) family members are also extremely impressed with the support of the community.� In September the long-term care facility on Snake Island Road launched a major fundraising campaign. The facility needs to raise $500,000 in the next few years

to replace everything from the roof to dining room furniture. The facility is also required by the province to buy an industrial back-up generator, which will cost $100,000 alone. Replacing the roof and updating the heating and air conditioning system are both $100,000 projects, and buying specialized hospital beds could add another $250,000 to the bill. New floors in residents’ rooms, where tiles are coming up and pose a safety hazard, will cost $2,300 per double room or $1,500 per single. Equipment like sit-stand lifts and a point of care computerization system are badly needed. Staff wants to replace aging dining room tables, bedroom furniture and decor as well – because, after all, the centre is home to 100 people. In December, the facility unveiled a giving tree where residents, community members and businesses can honour a loved one or make a public donation, which are displayed in the form of bronze, silver and gold leaves. Since the launch Hill said about 50 leaves have been added to the tree. A February blues and beer tasting night at Stanley’s Farm raised $25,000 for the care centre and several community groups and individuals have done some private fundraising for the cause. The most recent donations were from private donors, including one left in a will. Hill said new furniture for the care centre’s atrium has already been ordered, and they are working on designs for a “country cafe� for residents and their families to enjoy together. NEW GOAL

to raise another $100,000 by September. “It worked the first time,� she laughed. She’s got several events planned over the spring and summer to help them reach the new goal. On April 11, the care centre will host a community night at the races at Rideau Carleton Raceway. For $30, guests can enjoy a buffet dinner, vouchers for Bingo and the slots, and a discount coupon for a return dinner.

(March 19) was a magical day and we got three very healthy donations that took us over our target. WENDY HILL COMMUNITY RELATIONS DIRECTOR

The evening’s silent auction includes a rare Robert Bateman print, flying lessons and a handmade quilt donated by a resident’s family member. Hill said the care centre is still looking for corporate sponsors for the event. The centre will also host an auction sale in Vernon in June, although the date has yet to be confirmed. Hill said they are looking for antiques, collectibles and even donated new items from businesses. “If you don’t know what to do with it, if you don’t want to have a garage sale, then donate it to us,� she said. A community pig roast will be held in July to continue fundraising into the summer. To donate or to sponsor an event, contact Hill at 613-8211034 ext. 248.

St. Mark to host mental health night Olympian Liz Manley, YSB head Michael Baine to speak emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Staff at St. Mark High School in Manotick hope to stop mental illness in its tracks at an upcoming information session. The April 4 event welcomes all parents and community members who want to learn more about youth mental health issues and how to prevent and resolve them. Beginning at 6 p.m., 10 community agencies from across the city will be available to speak with parents and offer more resources. At 7 p.m., Olympic figure skater Elizabeth Manley and Youth Services Bureau chairman Michael Baine will take the stage to share their experiences. Manley, now a mental health advocate, will share her personal struggle with depression during her figure skating career in the 1980s. Baine is a former superintendent at the Ottawa Catholic School Board and now speaks regularly about education, leadership and parenting issues. The pair has been visiting area schools

to discuss youth mental health issues for the past year. St. Mark principal Steve McCabe said the school wanted to host this event to bridge the gap between parents and the community agencies that can help them. “It’s a question of prevention and awareness that we want to serve the needs of the students in our community,” said McCabe. “We know that there’s an increased concern with anxiety and depression and some other concerns.” The event is targeted to St. Mark parents, but McCabe said it’s open to anyone with an interest in the topic. “Because we have such high profile speakers, we did want to extend the invitation to the community,” he said. Vice principal Wanda Symes said the event is also a way to create partnerships. “We have to work together to help these students and youth through any issues they have,” Symes said. “Once you start talking about it you break down barriers.” School parent Janice Domaratzki said she’s pleased the school is

Many of the students involved in the fentanyl problem attend or used to attend St. Mark. “There’s no connection for this, we see this as a separate issue,” McCabe said. “We’re talking to a different clientele.” The school hosted a drug and addictions awareness night last

year. This year’s participating community agencies include Ottawa Public Health, The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, Youth Services Bureau, Youth Net, Crossroads Children’s Centre, Parents’ Lifelines of Eastern Ontario, Catholic School

Having cut taxes over 140 times since 2006, we have helped the average Canadian family save over $3,100 per year. For those families with young children eligible for the Universal Child Care Benefit, savings could be as much as $5,500 annually.

Parents’ Association, Roberts Smart Centre, Nepean Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre and Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services. Parents can register in advance through the St. Mark High School website, but walk-ins are also welcome.

These savings come, in part, from many of our popular tax credits. The Child Tax Benefit, for example, provides tax relief of over $300 per child under the age of 18 for the 2012 tax year. Additionally, the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit, an idea that I presented to the Prime Minister in 2006, and the Children’s Arts Tax Credit, each save families $75 per child under 16 for activities like soccer, hockey and ballet. New this tax year is our Government’s Family Caregiver Tax Credit, which provides financial relief for those families caring for their elderly or disabled relatives. The Child Disability Benefit for low and moderate income families has also been increased and extended to permit broader eligibility.

Additional tax credits introduced by our Government since 2006 include: the Textbook Tax Credit, which delivers $65 for each month of full-time post-secondary education; the Public Transit Tax Credit for 15% of the cost of a monthly or yearly public transit pass; the Apprenticeship Job Creation Tax Credit for employers equivalent to 10% of the salaries and wages paid to the apprentice; the Volunteer Firefighters Tax Credit of $3,000 for volunteer firefighters who perform at least 200 hours of service a year; and the First-Time Home Buyers Tax Credit, which saves Canadians up to $750 on qualifying home purchases. Finally, it was our Government that reduced the GST from seven percent to five percent, a move which alone saves families an average of $900 per year. We have also lowered personal income taxes for all Canadians, and created the Tax-Free Savings Account which is helping them save for their future. Our Government is making a difference in the lives of Canadian families. We will continue to help families meet their financial challenges by reducing taxes even further and delivering tools that make it easier to save.

World Water Day celebrates Rideau Corridor project

THE OLDER ADULT PLAN By Jim Watson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - For many communities along the Rideau Canal, protecting waterways is not just reserved for World Water Day; it’s a way of life. Representatives from communities like Merrickville, Osgoode and other Rideau Corridor towns joined Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson and members of the region’s three conservation authorities to celebrate World Water Day at city hall on March 21. The evening focused on the Rideau Corridor Landscape Strategy, an ongoing Parks Canada project to assess the visual character of the canal corridor. In partnership with representatives from First Nations, federal and provincial agencies, municipalities, NGOs, property owners and others, the strategy aims to “ensure a collective vision for the Rideau Corridor,� according to the Parks Canada website. Thompson opened the evening with brief remarks

before turning the discussion over to MerrickvilleWolford mayor Doug Struthers and landscape strategy director Susan Millar. “Most people are quite well aware of the Rideau River, the Rideau Canal and the importance it has for the city,� Thompson said. “But not a lot of people know about World Water Day, which I think is really important.� Along with being a Canadian heritage river, the canal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007. It is this designation driving the strategy. “These designations are not only an honour; they carry with them an obligation to ensure the universal values that are the basis of the designations are protected,� the Parks Canada website said. This year’s World Water Day coincides with the UN’s International Year of Water Co-operation. Events and celebrations honouring fresh water took place across the world on March 22. R0011995792

This means even more seniors will be taking transit, visiting libraries and registering for recreation programs. It also means that our city will enjoy the priceless beneďŹ ts of the skills and knowledge that come with older adults who volunteer their time in community activities. Looking ahead, the key will be building an age-friendly city, one that puts issues that matter to seniors at front of mind. We need to set the right priorities to help older adults reach their full potential. This is why the City of Ottawa has recently launched its Older Adult Plan, a set of actions that we will take to create a more age-friendly city.

R0011951215

Emma Jackson

It is the product of about two years of hard work and consultations with older adults and service providers. Our work began in 2011 when I hosted the Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seniors Summit at City Hall, which was a commitment I made in the last election. The event was the ďŹ rst in a series of valuable discussions

about how the City can better serve older adults and how we need to plan for the future. The Older Adult Action Plan commits the City of Ottawa to 74 CONCRETE ACTIONS OVER THE NEXT two years in priority areas such as outdoor spaces, transportation, housing, communication, recreation, civic participation and social inclusion. &OR EXAMPLE WORK HAS ALREADY begun on installing more accessible features in City facilities. We have also published an Older Adult Activity Guide to connect residents with recreation programs. You will soon start to see improvements made for pedestrian safety, access to volunteer opportunities and a wide range of other areas to enrich the lives of older adults. This is just the beginning, but we are on the right track. In fact, we were recently recognized by the World Health Organization, which added Ottawa as a member of its 'LOBAL .ETWORK OF !GE &RIENDLY Cities. If you are interested in reading the Older Adult Action Plan, printed copies are available by calling 3-1-1 or e-mailing seniors@ottawa. ca.

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, March 28, 2013

EMC news - Mayor Jim Watson is set to pull the plug on a new Ottawa casino if he doesn’t get the same sweetheart deal offered to Toronto. The mayor sent a letter to that effect to Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation chairman Paul Godfrey on March 15 after it was revealed that OLG will offer a preferential revenue sharing agreement for a proposed gaming centre in Toronto. “I strongly disagree with the OLG’s suggestion that it is planning to introduce preferential revenue sharing for the City of Toronto that, by function, would discriminate against all other Ontario municipalities,” Watson wrote in the letter. But in a statement issued later that afternoon, Premier Kathleen Wynne insisted “there will be no special deal for Toronto.” Wynne said the OLG is taking the same approach in Toronto as it is in the rest of Ontario. Watson’s letter was prompted by a report in the Globe and Mail revealing that OLG was planning to give Toronto a sweetheart deal that would give that city more than double its share of gaming revenue if Toronto allows a casino to be built on its waterfront. Toronto stands to receive $50 to $100 million in hosting fees, according to the Globe report. Wynne said OLG’s approach to hosting fees will be the same in all the areas being considered for a new casino, but Toronto’s fee would “reflect the size and scale that global gaming companies have confirmed is possible in

MAYOR JIM WATSON

(that) city.” “If the same capital investment and job potential are possible elsewhere, the same hosting fees would be generated,” Wynne wrote. In a letter sent to the City of Ottawa last November, OLG confirmed that a revenue-sharing agreement for Ontario gaming facilities “will not be changed,” even if the facility is relocated within the gaming zone, which would be the case for Ottawa if a new casino is approved here. The city’s negotiations with OLG were based on the understanding that the funding formula would stay the same for all Ontario municipalities, Watson wrote in his letter. OLG is hoping to open five new casinos in different zones in Ontario as part of a “modernization” strategy. Toronto is the only affected municipality that has yet to vote on whether to accept a new facility. On Oct. 10, Ottawa city council voted 19-5 to “signal its interest” in a possible new gambling facility somewhere in the city. Actual proposals from private developers willing to build a casino in Ottawa wouldn’t arrive until this fall.

The city stands to gain more than $1 million extra from a new slots revenue sharing agreement with OLG signed last fall. But it’s still unclear whether that funding formula would also apply to a new casino. During a city council meeting last November, city clerk and solicitor Rick O’Connor assured city councillors that a new moneydistribution agreement for the slots at Rideau Carleton Raceway would not be binding on a new facility, as the OLG looks for a private developer to build a new casino in Ottawa. “We’re going to have a new arrangement and a new agreement if council decides on a new casino,” Mayor Jim Watson said. That understanding was based on discussions he has had with OLG over the past couple of weeks, Watson said. Not so, said OLG spokesman Tony Bitonti. “(The current agreement) will apply to a new casino as well,” Bitonti said. “The new agreement takes effect April 1 (2013) and then if and when a new casino is built, that will be the same funding agreement with the City of Ottawa. “Nothing changes.” Over the past five years, the city has received between $4.3 and $4.4 million annually from 1,250 slot machines at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. The new agreement would add $1.3 million more per year to the city’s coffers if slot revenue remains the same. The agreement means the city gets 5.25 per cent of first $65 million of net slot revenue, three per cent on next $135 million, 2.5 per cent of the next $300 million and 0.5 per cent of the remainder.

Communty input important to final plan Continued from front

According to the proposals, any future expansions in small or medium villages would have to be done on city services, Beltzner added. Depending on the economic viability of bringing water and sewer service to a particular village, some villages may not survive if they are not allowed to

expand on well and septic alone, he said. TRANSPORTATION

On the transportation side, Beltzner said one proposed policy in particular could cause problems for rural commuters. The city has proposed to redefine how it measures peak traffic to a three-hour period, which it

hopes will reduce the need to expand roads or build new ones by about 15 per cent. This policy comes from the city’s commitment to encourage active and sustainable transportation. But fewer new or expanded roads could make commutes into the city longer for employees driving from the rural areas, especially if they don’t work near a transit hub or have other options

for getting to work, Beltzner said. Residents will have a chance to weigh in on those policies and more at the meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. in the upstairs hall of the Manotick arena. Participants should register in advance so they can receive an information package in advance. Register at secretary@manotickvca.org.

Hosting a venting session

L

ast weekend, the city hosted a roundtable discussing managing climate change by curbing greenhouse gas emissions. A laudable goal, but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help wonder if it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t also simply an exercise in â&#x20AC;&#x153;fuel-tility.â&#x20AC;? The first topic of the meeting was discussing the most effective strategies for the city to reduce greenhouse gases. The first and really only answer to effectively lower the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon footprint is to lobby the federal and provincial government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; really the only bodies with the power to act as effective agents of change. Did the city really need to spend taxpayers money on an environmental venting session, before writing a letter to the provincial and federal ministries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as well as assorted MPs and MPPs? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not suggesting that individuals, municipalities, companies and other assorted organizations and NGOs canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a difference â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but any effective change will require the concerted effort of cities, provinces and ultimately nations. Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proper role in the discussion is to work with other municipalities to pressure the federal and provincial governments to address

the problem. The greenhouse gas roundtable was set up following months of pressure from a loosely connected group of activists who have been mounting a campaign using Twitter and other social media. Activists were pressing the city to meet its committment to come up with a new climate-change action plan that included clear greenhouse gas reduction targets and a timetable for that plan. The question remains, what kind of actions can the city unilaterally take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easily overturned by the provincial and federal government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially if these actions are ones that lie outside municipalities purview. The City of Ottawa did not need to shell out money and waste time hosting a meeting that ultimately will result in another letter-writing campaign and perhaps small changes to building design requirements, city vehicle fleets or wastemanagement practices. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time would be better spent holding a forum discussing its trash collection policy or the need to address the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aging infrastructure problem.

What we really need is an app for real city living

L

ast week it was revealed that there are now two apps to tell you when your bus will arrive. Apparently one was not enough and someone felt the need to come up with a better one. This is the way our economy works nowadays. Most of the time and energy available to our inventors, entrepreneurs and marketers is now spent developing things for phones. Some of them are useful, some of them are just fun. Yet just about the time we get comfortable with them, our inventors, entrepreneurs and marketers come up with new phones. Our old ones are obsolete. The entire economy stands or falls on this stuff now and we might as well get used to it. Sure, some people think that what we need is more factories, better crops, better vaccines, more alternate sources of energy, improved schools and hospitals. Never mind. What we get is better phones. And more apps for them. There is an app that works like a flashlight, which is pretty useful, and I have musician friends whose phones contain the chord progressions for hundreds of tunes. But there is also an app that allows you to use hypnotherapy to improve

Funny Town your golf game, an app that allows you to construct imaginary road networks, an app that helps you to manage your wine cellar and an app that will tell you how long your battery will last. Thousands more apps are in existence, millions more are on the way and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop them. Besides, the economy would crumble if we did and there may not be an app to save it yet. So we might as well go with the flow and begin to search for new apps that will make our city life more bearable. What more can our phones do for us? (Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say â&#x20AC;&#x153;enable us to make telephone calls,â&#x20AC;? because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such an outdated concept.)

would tell you when the city plows are approaching your street, so that you can move your car. The bolder among you might use the app to tell you when to stand by the curb imploring the operator not to leave the mountain of snow at the end of your driveway.

Never mind, for the moment, that condo builders have an app that puts them in immediate touch with the Ontario Municipal Board so that city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision can be overturned. A good traffic app would be helpful, to give you the information you now get from the radio. This tells you about a traffic jam that is no longer a traffic jam by the time you get to it. The app will warn of traffic jams that are expected next Wednesday and, when you are stuck in one anyway, enable you to manage your wine cellar while you wait.

We talked about exciting new extracurricular sports and clubs at the school, supervised by the Principal, Vice-Principal and an eager group of parent volunteers. We discussed the vibrant multicultural community at the school, and talked about ways to increase parental engagement. The Principal presented the school budget, and sought input on ways to meet the needs of all students, in both the English program and the French immersion program. I left the meeting with a feeling of great excitement and optimism, as the parent community exercises its role in making the educational experience for our students an outstanding one.

Spring into Activity with City Classes and Memberships

Province targets unpaid traffic fines Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi is finding success in his push to make it easier to collect unpaid traffic fines. Almost 70 per cent of unpaid fines owed to municipalities are related to provincial Highway Traffic Act offences and the Ontario Liberals were set to introduce legislation last week that would strengthen the government’s ability to collect that money. The changes mean drivers wouldn’t be able to renew their Ontario vehicle licence plates without paying off their fines. Currently, Ontario only prevents people from renewing their drivers’ licences, which must be done every five years. The legislation would also restrict Ontario drivers from having more than one licence plate they could swap out on their vehicle.

Out-of-province offenders are also being targeted under the proposed legislation. So far, Ontario has drafted an agreement with the Quebec government to share information about drivers who receive fines in Ontario for offences such as running red lights. Discussions with other provinces will follow, Murray said. Naqvi said he wanted to bring the proposals forward because unpaid traffic fines are a “real and significant” issue for Ottawa. “We have a lot of drivers on our roads who are not from Ontario,” Naqvi said. “This will ensure everyone is treated fairly.” But Mayor Jim Watson said the new law is not just about getting more money for the city. “It’s about public safety,” he said. Better enforcement of the law will discourage drivers from breaking the law, he said. Ottawa city council weighed

in on the issue last year when it unanimously passed a motion put forward by Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches and Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess asking the province to allow municipalities to better enforce fines for out-of-province drivers caught by red-light cameras in Ottawa. Ontario will have to spend $4 million to improve its database system in order to make the new legislation work. There is currently $1 billion in uncollected fines on the books, Murray said. The City of Ottawa alone is owed about $56 million in unpaid fines handed out since 1970, Watson said. If passed, the legislation would only be retroactive for seven years, which represents $525 million across the province. About two-thirds of that – around $350 million – is likely to be collected thanks to the new legislation, Murray said.

Enjoy an easy and nutritious pot of oats EMC lifestyle - Mornings are hectic for many families. Between getting out the door to school on weekdays and extra-curriculars on weekends, finding the time to cook and eat breakfast can be a challenge. A national poll of Canadian family breakfast habits recently found that half of Canadian families (49 per cent) spend less than 10 minutes preparing breakfast, while more than half (60 per cent) spend less than 15 minutes eating it. So, to make the most of that tight time window, and take utmost advantage of the most important meal of the day, quick options are a must. Realizing that time and convenience are key to the solution, the Canadian Living magazine test kitchen, partnering with Minute Maid, has created a â&#x20AC;&#x153;make ahead

Toffee on snow a tasty spring treat for Mary

F

inding clean snow in the yard at the farm was almost impossible. This caused a great concern for Mother. At this time of year, we five children begged for toffee-on-snow as the sap poured from the trees, and that meant hauling in a roaster of spotlessly clean snow. As well as the boilingdown in the big flat pan in the bush, Mother would boil big pots of sap in the kitchen filling the house with sweet heavy steam. Each night we children begged for toffee-on-snow, but often Mother would say it was a Saturday night treat and we went to bed out of sorts that we have been deprived of one of our favourite treats. Each night that we were allowed this indulgence Everett or Audrey, being the two oldest in the family, would be sent out for a roast pan of snow. Mother kept sending them farther and farther afield for clean snow. Father said she would soon have us going across

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories the river to Admaston, which of course was an exaggeration. But Mother was fastidious about anything that came within a country mile of our mouths and using a roast pan of snow where the livestock had trod was out of the question. So either Everett or Audrey was given the task of finding clean snow for the toffee -- Emerson couldn’t be trusted to go beyond the barn yard. That night it was dark as pitch outside. It had been a heavy snow for late March. Mother said we would be staying home. No church party had been planned and no one had offered their home for a game of cards, so we had a rare Saturday night at home without

a house full of neighbours. It was a perfect night for toffee-on-snow. Audrey would carry the lantern and Everett the roast pan and the big soup ladle, ready to bring in the freshly fallen snow. Mother had put a small pot of already boiled syrup on the front lid of the Findlay Oval and it was fair jumping by the time the clean snow was brought into the house, just perfect to pour out on the snow for a feed of sticky toffee. Although Mother always trusted Audrey or Everett to go well away from the barn yard, that night she took a big spoon and dragged it through the roaster of snow, just to be on the safe side. Well, what happened next was something like you

would see in a picture show in Renfrew. There, buried in the pan of snow, was something that proved they hadn’t gone far enough. Mother stared at the black lump, which wasn’t big enough to fill a teaspoon, but big enough to send her into a fit. Father, used to Mother’s obsession with cleanliness, never took his eyes off the Family Herald and Weekly Star that he was reading by the oven door. She demanded to know where the snow came from, and both Audrey and Everett vowed it came from the farthest reaches of the yard where no livestock ever went. Well, that didn’t satisfy Mother. Even though she had no idea what the black lump was, she knew it had spoiled the entire roaster of snow. Audrey said she would get rid of it and that the rest of the roaster was perfectly clean. Well, she might as well have told Mother the lump was just a raisin. Mother was having no part of her story.

“Dump it out, Audrey,” Mother said. “Goodness knows what else is in the roaster. There’ll be no toffee tonight.”

Mother had put a small pot of already boiled syrup on the front lid of the Findlay Oval and it was fair jumping by the time the clean snow was brought into the house, just perfect to pour out on the snow for a feed of sticky toffee. Well, did that cause an uproar. Emerson accused Everett and Audrey of getting the snow from behind the cow byre where we dumped the manure, Everett took a handful of the snow out of the roaster and flung it at Emerson, who paid him back by throwing his gum rubber

at him, hitting him square in the face. Audrey was ready to stomp off upstairs. Mother ordered her back to the table and she was told to scrub the roaster with hot water and lye soap, even though the teeny bit of black came no where near touching the pan. The commotion in the kitchen was like something you’d see in a movie. Father got off the rocking chair, folded the Family Herald and Weekly Star, tapped his pipe into the stove and he could be heard muttering about the crazy family he was living with – “A man can’t even read the paper in peace.” While he was heading for the bedroom off the kitchen, he added, “Hauling snow in the house, throwing it around like it was nothing. Washing a perfectly clean pan, I tell you the whole house is going straight to hell in a basket,” which was a saying Father hauled out every time something came up that riled him. That night he was as riled as I had seen him in a long time.

Greely Elementary School science workshop a hit with studednts Take a look! Emma Thompson takes a peek at some porcupine quills through a microscope during the Scientists in School program. Students at the school had an exciting opportunity to see how science works up close. They had the chance to observe and understand a little bit of the world around them by looking through their own eyes and feeling with their own hands.

Furry friends Grade 1 Greely Elementary School student Jahlani Lawrence, middle, explores different kinds of animal fur with his classmates Kaytlin Goddard, left, and Tristan Ayling on March 19. Grade 1 students spent the morning with Scientists in School, an educational charity that brings hands-on science into classrooms. Students got up close and personal with fur, feathers, snakeskin and shells.

Pet Adoptions GINGER ID#A153509

PARKER ID#A152884

Ginger is a spayed female, white and cream Retriever mix who is just over a year old. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on February 23, but is not available for adoption. Ginger loves to play! She will need access to lots of toys to keep her entertained. She has a very friendly and sweet disposition when it comes to meeting people, but is uneasy around other dogs. Ginger will need to be introduced to new dogs on a regular basis, in a controlled environment with polite and friendly dogs in order to continue to learn appropriate meet and greet behaviour. Ginger will need an experienced owner who has the time to dedicate to her training and socialization. She would love a family with children over the age of 8, who will bring her for outdoor adventures. Parker is a neutered male, white and brown tabby Domestic Longhair cat who is about 3 years old. A good Samaritan found Parker wandering the neighbourhood on January 24 with an open wound on his face. Concerned, they brought him to the OHS in hopes that we could help him. While in our care, we treated and monitored his injuries until he was ready to be adopted. Parker is a playful but easy-going cat who loves to sleep on his hideand-perch box, and doesn’t seem to be bothered by the presence of other cats. Parker has been great with the children visiting in the Adoption Centre, and would be suitable to a family with children who know to be gentle with him. For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

When is the right time to make a tough decision? Hello. My name is Boomer and I am seventeen years old. My Mom adopted me from the Ottawa Humane Society a long time ago. She said it was meant to be because we were born on the same day in January (but not the same year). My Dad is very allergic to me but when he married Mom he said that it didn’t matter one bit. Every Christmas I buy him a big box of Reactine to say thanks. As you can see from my picture I am very cute. My hobbies include sleeping and napping in my heated cat bed, rummaging in closets, licking plastic, rolling on my special mat and from time to time, being insolent. Lately I have developed a thyroid problem and must take some medicine twice a day. It tastes like chicken treats so what do I care. I know my name is Boomer but sometimes I am called the ‘Four-legged Alarm Clock’. I also have five spots. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

Time to make a grooming appointment

days, you’re making sure that your pet’s suffering is alleviated and that it is comfortable all the while. If you are thinking about palliative care for your dying pet, there are many practical issues that you should think about, and many questions that you should ask yourself before you decide to go this route. Your veterinarian will play a large role in the process. If you don’t have a vet, it’s your duty to get one so you can make informed decisions about the health of your animal. During the initial stages of a pet’s illness, if your veterinarian does not raise the topic of humane euthanasia, it doesn’t mean the topic is off limits. Some veterinarians may not broach the subject first, so make sure you initiate the conversation. Deciding to provide palliative care to a pet is something the whole family must agree on. The choice can be a costly one — both emotionally and financially — so everyone must be on board. Most importantly, you need to ask yourself who you are doing this for. As heartbreaking as losing a pet may be, you must always make sure that you are placing your pet’s welfare ahead of your own emotions.

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

Boomer

Pet ownership brings many joys, but also tough decisions. Your pet needs love, care and devotion, and may sometimes require an ethical or moral choice be made on its behalf. Your companion animal cannot tell you when he or she is in pain and suffering, and as your pet reaches the senior stage in life, it’s importance to know your pet and his or her body language, and have a plan ready so that a tough decision is not put off too long because of emotions. Humane euthanasia can often be a very kind decision for an animal, and is certainly a more responsible and compassionate decision if you are no longer able to meet your pet’s care needs. It is important that, no matter what you decide, your animal’s welfare always comes first. If your pet has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or has begun to suffer increasingly from age-related ailments, humane euthanasia may eventually be the only option you have. Most people want to have as much time as possible with their pet before they have to say a final goodbye. Many believe that they can provide their pet with a good quality of life for some time to come. Your role is to recognize suffering and to provide care and relief to your animal. Palliative care for animals is much the same as palliative care for humans — you’re not just letting a dying pet live out its remaining
