Manotick filmmaker revives Canadian UFO story Emma Jackson

EMC news - The Diefenbunker served its original purpose over the weekend of May 12 when it sheltered four people from a dangerous energy mass outside. At least, that’s what a local filmmaker’s script outlined as a small cast and crew shot the climax of Manotick resident Dale Windle’s first feature film in the bowels of Canada’s cold war museum in Carp. Windle’s sci-fi thriller “Rulers of Darkness” follows Dan Thomas, a young man from Chicago as he tries to uncover the truth about his mother’s strange and untimely death in Falcon Lake, Manitoba two years prior. The plot grows from the

documented “Falcon Lake Incident” of 1967, during which a Winnipeg prospector reportedly witnessed two glowing and very hot unidentified flying objects land near the lake before he was badly burned by the vessels. When documents of the RCMP investigation were declassified several years ago, Windle heard the story on CBC and was inspired to write a film based on the events. Windle, 58, said he’s wanted to be a filmmaker since he was a teenager making home movies. However, his father sent him to become an architect instead, and he spent 15 years doing a job he didn’t enjoy. He then left to start an IT company – another job he didn’t re-

ally want to do. It wasn’t until about four years ago when he began to experience a series of personal tragedies that he started to consider making movies like he’d planned.

The plot grows from the documented “Falcon Lake Incident” of 1967. First he lost his best friend, and then his father and another friend in Ottawa. Two years later before an annual memorial for his best friend, three childhood friends that were going to host him were killed in a car accident. “It just starts a process of

thinking about what is the meaning of life, what am I doing here, why am I doing these things I don’t want to do,” he said. Two years ago this April, he finally acted on the conviction that had been growing since the death of his best friend. “I got up one day and I said, ‘You know what, I’m going to make sure that I go and do the things I really want to do,’” he said during a break from filming on Sunday, May 13. He attended a film school in New York City and last year he made his first film, a 22-minute comedy which is now on DVD and on demand in the US. He approached this first feature film as a kind of test run, to learn the process of making

a feature-length movie. “I literally made a business decision to make a sci-fi thriller. I was driving along, I heard that story about the Falcon Lake incident on CBC, I researched it and I thought, ‘what a perfect way to inspire a story,’” he said. Central to the story is the idea that the prospector saw a glowing mass leave the ship, which in the film Dan’s uncle, a plasma expert, believes is an inorganic plasma life form. The uncle moves to a cabin on Falcon Lake, just over the hill from an abandoned uranium mine, to conduct experiments. He excavates his way into the nearby mine’s power plant through his basement, and sets up a laboratory. UFO, see page 13

Cyclists set sights on vision research funding Emma Jackson

EMC news – Cycling alongside the Rideau River can offer some stunning views, and organizers of one charitable bike ride hope to ensure everyone can see the sights. The third annual Cycle for Sight in support of the Foundation Fighting Blindness, a Canadian charity that funds vision impairment research, will once again start and finish in Manotick. The ride features a 68-kilometre loop through Kemptville or a 107-km loop through Merrickville on Sunday, June 3. This year the cyclists will leave from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority rather than from Watson’s Mill, which event manager Jaime Alexanderson said will allow the organizers to host a bigger and better celebration for participants. “It gives us a kick-off location that’s open specifically for us on Sunday,” she said. Event organizers will provide a fully catered meal in the building, including complementary drinks and beer sponsored by Creemore Springs. The ride follows the Rideau

River corridor, with rest stops along the way sponsored by local Lions clubs who will offer food, water, sports drinks and washrooms for the riders. Each rider must pay a $65 entry fee, and are required to raise $400 worth of fundraising before the ride. Alexanderson said the organizers are about half-way to their goal of $30,000, and have 66 riders signed up. That’s on par with last year’s participation of 67 riders. Alexanderson said she hopes to have 70 riders signed up by June 3. In Toronto, a sister event that started a year before Ottawa’s ride attracts more than 200 riders every year. Between Ottawa and Toronto, the rides have raised $950,000 for the foundation since 2009. The Foundation Fighting Blindness was founded in 1974 to support research on treatments and cures for genetic visual impairments such as retinitis pigmentosa and macular degeneration. Since that time, it has donated more than $19 million to major eye research projects taking place at universities and hospitals across the coun-

try, according to its website. Some of the foundation’s fundraising is being put to work at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. Dr. Valerie Wallace is currently leading a $2.4 million multi-year project to investigate the potential of stem cell therapies to repair parts of the eye. Dr. Catherine Tsilfidis is using a $1.4 million multi-year study to develop gene therapies to help prevent retinal cell death, a statement said.

Alexanderson said the community is encouraged to come out and cheer for the cyclists on June 3, and to make a donation to the foundation through the website. She added that cyclists should train properly for the event. “We do encourage cyclists to train so they are prepared and it’s safe for them, because it is a long distance,” she said. To register for the ride or to make a donation visit the website at www.cycleforsight. ca.


Amelia Swanson and Corwin Troje were two of 67 cyclistss in the 2011 Cycle for Sight in Ottawa South.

Greely Pathfinders awarded prestigious Canada Cord Emma Jackson

Let us begin with some remarkable facts: • When Canada introduced old age security in 1951, the average life expectancy was 69 and eligibility was 70, meaning that the average person did not collect OAS at all. Today, eligibility is 65 and life expectancy is 82, meaning that the average person gets 17 years of OAS. • In 1975, there were seven taxpayers for every senior. Right now, there are four. In 20 years, there will be two taxpayers for every senior. • As we project forward, life expectancy is growing by 47 days per year. By 2031, life expectancy will be about 84 years old, which means that under the current rules they will collect OAS for almost two decades. Put together, these facts mean that in two decades the number of people on OAS will double, the cost will triple and the number of taxpayers supporting each retiree will fall by half. By consequence, OAS will rise from 15¢ of each dollar the federal government spends to 25¢. The Macdonald-Laurier Institute calculated, “ 2040 Canada would face a $67 billion deficit (in today’s dollars) based on current policies and demographic change”. Think of OAS as a glass of water. Retirees can only drink out of the cup in benefits what taxpayers pour into it in taxes. If seniors drink out faster than taxpayers pour in, then someone goes thirsty. We can look to Greece and Portugal where government debts are rated at junk status to see the consequences of drinking from the cup of profligacy.

We reject that failed model and choose the Canadian way instead. Our plan is to gradually raise the age of eligibility to 67 years old. This change will moderate the cost increases and protect the integrity of OAS. The move comes into force in 2023, so anyone currently over the age of 54 will not notice any difference. This decision will make the system more affordable, so that it is protected for generations to come. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

EMC news – Six young women in Greely were awarded the highest honour they can achieve in the Pathfinder program through Girl Guides of Canada last week. At an award ceremony on Monday, May 14 the teens received bright red Canada Cords, representing hours upon hours of community service, badge work and leadership. “This is not something that’s just given away for showing up,” said Pathfinder leader Jenn Downing, who has led the expanding group for two years. To receive the Canada Cord, a Pathfinder must complete 20 badges in nine different subject areas, lead three camps or events, and complete a service component with community service carried out locally, internationally and for the environment. The Greely Pathfinders completed their international component through a trip to Honduras where they donated sports equipment to an orphanage. They have also been working on milk bag mats for victims of the Haiti earth-

Pathfinders citizenship award, which encourages girls to be model citizens. All of these items are completed over the three-year Pathfinders course. Downing said the Greely group has been growing since she took over the unit two years ago. “I started doing bigger trips and pushed the girls to do stuff, and they started bringing their friends. It’s more of a girl-led program,” she said. Her commitment to the girls was that they could take on some of the more adventurous activities and trips as long as they worked toward their Canada Cords. She said this is the first time in several years that Greely girls have received the honour. “A lot of girls and leaders haven’t been dedicated enough to do it,” Downing said. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson presented the cords. He said the blossoming guiding program in Greely from Sparks to Rangers is “tremendous.” “I think it speaks well for Greely and the area,” he said. Greely’s Sparks, Brownies, Guides and Rangers joined the Pathfinders at the Greely Community Centre for the award ceremony, where many girls graduated to the next level of the program. Fourteen Sparks advanced to Brownies, and 15 Brownies advanced to Guides. Nine Guides advanced to Pathfinders. Two 1st Greely Brownies, Rachel Johnstone and Robyn Millar, also received a special award for completing all of the badges in the Brownies curriculum over their two year course. First Greely Brownie Robyn Fitch was also honoured for being a “badge maniac,” after completing nearly everything in one year.

Vernon library celebrates 40 years in schoolhouse EMC news – For 130 years, the old schoolhouse on Highway 31 in Vernon has been a place of education and community. First, it was a pillar of the village as Osgoode Township’s Schoolhouse No. 20 serving Vernon. Sixty years later it was replaced by a new school, and in 1961 became Club 31 – Vernon’s hub for community events, wedding showers and get-togethers. In 1972 the club allowed Osgoode Township Library to fill the northwest corner of the old schoolhouse with shelves of books, to act as its Vernon branch. When the club was hosting events, a curtain was pulled across the shelves to hide them. “I’m told the rod is still there behind the valance, as a legacy,� said Donna Clark, the rural library manager for the city. In 1982 the entire building was converted into a library, and since then has been a different kind of hub – one of reading, research and learning. On Saturday, June 2 the Vernon branch of the Ottawa Public Library will celebrate 40 years in its historic home, as part of Doors Open Ot-

build birdhouses, plant gardens and maintain the skating rink outside when their class work was complete. Duncan said despite the fact that the building now has a circulation desk inside the front door and its walls are covered with colourful books, he can still picture exactly how it was. “I can remember, just as plain as day,� he said. The branch’s public service supervisor Donna Bowen, who has lived in Vernon her entire life and has worked at the library for 20 years, said visitors respond well to the building. “People come in and say, ‘It’s so cozy in here.’ And then I tell them it used to be a school and they say, ‘Ah, OK,’� she said. The schoolhouse feeling still clings to the heritage building. “In one sense things have changed, but in another way there are still a few things that haven’t.� Before the library made its home in the schoolhouse, it was located at the Porteous general store where it was founded in 1900, at the corner of Lawrence Street and Highway 31. In 1987 the library was renovated, and in 2007 it received an accessible washroom where the original library shelves were once located. In

tawa. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. visitors can pop by the library to have some cake and check out the historic site. Walking through the red brick building, former student Erwin Duncan, now 84, has a keen eye for clues that the room was once filled with as many as 40 students from grades 1 to 8. He points to where the large woodstove used to sit in front of the main door, including a burn mark on the original hardwood floors. He notes a curtain rod sconce from which curtains hung during plays and special performances, and the footwide ledge that is all that’s left of the teacher’s platform at the front of the room. Two wooden desks with wrought-iron legs and inkwell holes are used as display tables in the middle of the library, although they now face the wrong way. A ceiling imperfection above the door marks where the belfry rope hung, and an even bigger hole marks the ventilation pipe for the indoor toilet that came after Duncan’s time. Duncan attended the school between 1934 and 1942, under the tutelage of Lloyd Lemoine, an unconventional outdoorsman that let them

The branch will celebrate 40 years in the schoolhouse on June 2. 2011 and 2012 the building got an accessible entranceway and ramp. Apart from structural changes, the library has also changed in terms of what it offers residents. Since amalgamation into the City of Ottawa in 2001, the branch has gained access to over two million items in the city’s collection. With grow-

EMC news - The Greely Community Association is inviting residents to improve the safety of their neighbourhood during a three-part safety audit of the village. On May 29, May 31 and June 5 the Women’s Initiatives for Safer Environments (WISE) will lead residents through pre-determined areas where lighting, poor infrastructure, traffic or other hazards pose a potential threat to residents. The reports from the walk-abouts will then be sent to the City of Ottawa with recommendations and solutions. In March, the association called for submissions of unsafe areas in Greely. The responses have been divided into three geographic areas, to be covered in an evening between 7 and 8:30 p.m. Association member Tamatha Trenholm said she welcomes all residents to take part in the audits. “The key thing for residents to contribute is their own concerns, to point out areas that have been a concern for safety, to talk about any stories that have related to that, and really express why they think certain areas need improvement,� she said. “That information will be added to the audit and it will point out areas where (the auditor) will take a closer look.� On Tuesday, May 29, WISE director Elsy David will lead residents through parts of Greely West for the first audit. Participants will meet at Greely West Park and then travel to the multi-use pathway crossing at Mitch Owens Road to discuss a possible signalized crossing.

Then the group will visit the intersection of Mitch Owens and Manotick Station Road to discuss traffic signals, and then visit Stanley Park and the pathway between Stanley Park and Lakeland Estates to talk about lighting. At the second audit on Thursday, May 31, participants will explore Greely’s village centre beginning at Greely Elementary School at 7 p.m. to discuss unsafe parking. From there they will look at Meadow Drive between Bank Street and Parkway Road, particularly the need for a sidewalk and solutions to high traffic volumes from the grocery store.

The key thing for residents to contribute is their own concerns, to point out areas that have been a concern for safety. TAMATHA TRENHOLM

The group will also explore lighting concerns on a walkway between Keswick and Meadow drives. The third audit on Tuesday, June 5 will begin at the Greely Community Centre and will explore lighting concerns at Andy Shields park and along pathways connecting to Shadow Ridge. Lighting will also be discussed for the pathway between Shadowridge Drive and Bush Drive, and on Donwell Drive. Trenholm said community input will be sought about solutions before they are put forward to the city. For more information email president@

The proposal to mark the spot at Clegg’s Landing where the body of the 18year-old Carleton University student was found on April 20, 2008 after she took her own life was met with some opposition at an initial meeting on March 13. Kajouji’s well-publicized disappearance was followed by the discovery she had taken her own life at the urging of a Minnesota nurse whom she chatted with online. He was found guilty of aiding her suicide last year. The circumstance is an opportunity to create a positive response to a unique situation, said Catherine Pacella, a community association board member who is now leading the memorial initiative. She said that it could be an opportunity to raise awareness and create support for those affected by mental health issues. It was suggested that the

memorial might gain more community support if it was a simple marker featuring Kajouji’s name and the dates of her birth and death, but some community association members felt that would be a missed opportunity. “For me, the important thing is the recognition of that story,� said board member Stephen Pope. “Initially, it was a strong statement on mental health,� he said, adding that he was becoming less interested in the project as talk strayed from that mission. There was still vocal opposition to the idea before it was approved by the community association’s board on May 7. Jim Strang, a resident of King’s Landing, said he was “very much against� spend-

Jarrett also expressed worry that the spot could become a space sought out by people intent on “copy-cat� suicides. Community association president John Dance said the police department in Aberdeen, Wash. said there have been no suicides at a high-profile memorial to rocker Kurt Cobain, who took his own life. The details of the permanent memorial haven’t been ironed out, but it could take the form of a seating boulder with a plaque or a memorial bench, which could cost between $2,500 and $5,000. The community association would contribute part of the cost. Kajouji’s mother, Deborah Chevalier, didn’t respond to requests for comment before this paper’s deadline. Old Ottawa East resident Claire McMenemy initially proposed the passed the project over to Pacella after her family decided to move away.

Resident Heather Jarrett was also opposed to the idea of a suicide or mentalhealth memorial and said that neighbours have told her “it feels like the flavour of the month.� Instead, Jarrett said she would prefer a rest and contemplation space that is “life affirming.� In the end, the community association’s board did settle on supporting a rest and contemplative area, but one that

A fitting memorial for our lost sons and daughters


he taboo against talking about youth suicide is starting to break. After much debate, the Old Ottawa East Community Association has agreed to create a memorial recongnizing mental health issues, in memory of 18-year-old Nadia Kajouji, the Carleton University student who took her own life in April of 2008. The community association agreed to replace a makeshift memorial, created by Nadia’s family, with

something more permanent to offer support to others who struggle with mental health issues that may lead to suicide. The idea sparked much debate among members of the community association. Some worried the site would attract or even encourage suicidal people. Unfortunately out of sight does not necessarily mean out of mind. In the past, far too many of us have remained fearfully quiet in the wake of the

death of one of our sons or daughters. Fears that took many forms, but boiled down to the same argument: if we talk about youth suicide it only serves to encourage others. The cracks in this tired and old argument started to show following the deaths of teens Daron Richardson, 14, in 2010 and Jamie Hubley, 15, in 2011. The parents of Daron and Jamie talked openly about their children’s struggle with mental health issues, a

problem that resonated with people across Canada. More important, it sparked discussion about what has become a national epidemic. One in five children suffer a mental health problem — but only a third of those get the help they need, according to the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa. Every one of us either know or have come into contact with a child who has mental health issues. This discussion has encouraged positive change.

It has sparked fundraisers and events raising awareness about youth mental health issues across Ottawa this summer, including the city’s Dragon Boat festival in June. The Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa has used money from recent fundraisers and donations to hire four new youth and family counsellors serving at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre and schools among Ottawa’s four English and French school boards. On a national level, a

private member’s bill has proposed creating a national suicide prevention strategy. Canada is the only G8 nation without a national suicide prevention strategy. This is an example of how a healthy discussion about a national problem can translate into a prescriptive policy change. These positive changes have become organic memorials to the memories of Nadia, Daron, Jamie — for all our sons and daughters who lost their lives battling mental health issues. A memorial more fitting than any statue or bench we could erect in their memory.


Rejoicing in little yellow flowers CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


ittle kids understand dandelions. Look at the pretty flower, they say. Look, Mommy, I picked a pretty flower for you. Grownups with lawns don’t understand dandelions. They have lost the ability to appreciate a pretty yellow flower and they want green grass instead. Grownups don’t understand how to get rid of dandelions, except by using chemicals which are outlawed in most places. So dandelions thrive, which is great for children and not so great for grownups with lawns. Women understand dandelion strategy. They let it be known that there’s a device that picks dandelions without the picker having to stoop. Men love devices and bring one home. Women say they can’t understand how the device works. Men, showing off, say, here, let me do it. Next thing you know, men are using the dandelion device. But the experts, and there are millions of them, take a dim long-run view of the dandelion device and all other cures. They say that no strategy outside of paving the lawn works against dandelions. So here’s a radical idea. Maybe we should just come to terms with them. Let dandelions be dandelions. Rejoice in yellow flowers all over the lawn. Ancient civilizations survived without green lawns and so can we. We just have to get used to it. Croquet will be a problem, for example. Golf courses might disappear, which is too bad, although it would save millions of dollars in green fees and new wedges. True, the issue of mowing the lawn will suddenly become complicated. For a time it will seem nicer: no pushing the lawnmower

around. But then things other than dandelions will pop up and we might want to cut them, but we can’t do so without cutting the dandelions. The risk then is that the dandelions will become overwhelmed by, among other things, grass. Another problem is that dandelion season does not last forever. Modern man being what he is, he will undoubtedly attempt to extend the dandelion season, by artificial means if necessary. There will be new dandelion-stimulating chemicals, demands to ban them and that that old battle beginning again. No one said that dandelions would be a bed of roses. But don’t forget the positives, one of them being the glory of all that yellow, the other being not having to pick all that yellow. In time we might forget grass. Perhaps our museums can preserve some, so that we can remember how it looked and how silly we were to become obsessed by it. Traditionalists, those who believe that we were meant to have lawns by divine plan and that Adam and Eve found the snake in the grass when they were mowing it, will take a dim view of the new pro-dandelion approach. They will do irrational things, such as writing letters to the editor and running for city council. But there are reasons for even them to be encouraged. Because it is always possible that when we want dandelions to grow, they won’t. This follows an age-old principle of gardening, which can be stated as follows: the harder you try to make a particular plant grow, the greater the likelihood of an entirely different plant growing in its place. In other words, it is possible that the best way to get rid of dandelions is by trying to grow them. Dandelions are like that. They know when they are not wanted. They take pride in popping up the morning after the proud male has picked the lawn clean with the dandelion device. Who is to say that they will not do the reverse — a disappearing act at a precisely the moment when we want them to appear? If that theory holds true, we are faced with the grim possibility that the lawn is here to stay, and that will have to mow it again.

EMC news – Money, crime and hockey will come together this weekend for an interactive murder mystery dinner in support of Waupoos Farm. Guests can travel back in time to interact with a group of 1940s actors preparing to take a radio play, ‘Dial NHL for Murder,’ out of studio for the first time. In the show within the show, a Texas tycoon has just bought an NHL franchise and holds a fundraiser to introduce his new Russian hockey star. Of course, drama ensues when someone dies and the police must come in to investigate – and nothing goes smoothly. “Everything goes wrong,” laughed Peter Dillon, president of Big Time Murder Productions, which will stage the interactive dinner theatre at the Visitation Banquet Hall in Greely on Friday, May 25. He said the play is a departure from their usual murder mystery nights. It is still interactive, but instead of participants trying to solve the mystery, the actors will audition guests to play four roles in the play. Of course, the script is full of “comedicallyplaced errors” aimed at making people laugh and putting

The show is not in the production company’s regular rotation, Dillon said, so it should be a change from the past four years they have entertained at the annual Waupoos Farm fundraiser. Waupoos fundraising co-ordinator Laura Kelly said they hope to make about $5,000 between the ticket sales and a silent auction. Max Keeping will emcee the event, and will likely auction several choice items live, Kelly said. “We’ll pick out a few items for him to do that with because it’s a lot of fun and he does such a good job,” she said. Tickets are $70 and include

a fully catered dinner at the new banquet hall beside the Our Lady of the Visitation church on Bank Street, just north of Mitch Owens Road. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. Waupoos Farm is a Christian organization on Rideau Road that welcomes low-income families to enjoy a vacation at the farm. Aimed at families that don’t have access to safe green space in the city, the kids can enjoy the abundant green space and activities while parents can have a much-needed break.

Local carver promotes spiritually-based designs

EMC news – Nyoman Sumerta doesn’t like to sit around doing nothing. The 38-year-old Hunt Club resident moved to Canada from the small Indonesian island of Bali six years ago. As a newcomer in the country, Sumerta has struggled to find a job, without luck – but he now says that is no longer a problem.

“Everywhere I go, I make sure I take my carving tools with me. At least they make busy and with them I can make money,” said Sumerta. Raised in an artistic woodcarving community in the centre of Bali Island, at age 11 Sumerta learned how to carve and design. “It is part of our tradition and we learn it from our elders,” he said. Now, he has turned his

carvings into spiritually-based designs and he is likely the only Balinese carver actively practicing in Canada. Sumerta can turn wood into hand-carved pieces inspired by Balinese culture, nature, spiritual images, and even native Canadian designs. Sumerta recycles pieces of wood from old furnishings and people’s junk and turned it into something artistic. He can take an old table top

Sumerta takes his inspiration from yoga, Balinese Hinduism and classical Indian motifs. He currently works with all sorts of woods and, in many cases, it’s reclaimed.

Even with a few breakthroughs, carving has not been an easy ride for Sumerta. “It is very hard carving here especially when you have to do all your work from inside the house,” he said. In Bali, people work outside, he said. Like all newcomers he suffered culture shock when he arrived in Canada and one thing that he misses most is the village feel of a community. “It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, you can walk down the street here and not see anybody. This really shocked me the first time I arrived here,” he said. Sumerta can be contacted through or at sumertadesigns@gmail. com.

UFO thriller catches imagination of Manotick filmmaker From MANOTICK, page 1

When Dan arrives at his uncle’s cabin in Falcon Lake, he heads into the woods to find the spot where his mother died of strange burns. But instead of finding answers, he discovers the energy mass that killed his mother. It starts chasing him and his love interest, Cheyna, and the pair must descend into the uranium mine to escape it. This is where “terrifying events unfold,” according to Windle, who didn’t want to spoil the ending. The Diefenbunker’s electrical room, where the genera-

tors, air ventilation, water intake tunnels and other necessary infrastructure still exist, posed as the abandoned lab. The climax of the movie was shot there over the course of two weekends in May. Other scenes were shot in a wooded area in Ottawa and at a cabin on Bobs Lake west of Perth. He said the film should be ready for release in July, at which point he hopes to have a Canadian distribution contract for DVD or even limited theatrical release. In October he will travel

to California to secure US licensing as well. As he still works full time with his IT company, he said he aspires to make one feature film each summer. Next year’s project is already in the works about a recovered alcoholic living on the street, who discovers $2.5 million in abandoned drug money. When he decides to take it his life is significantly affected, Windle said. This year’s sci-fi thriller will likely be shown at the Mayfair when it’s finished, Windle said.

Theatre cancels controversial teen suicide play Emma Jackson

EMC entertainment – Just Kiddin Theatre in Metcalfe has cancelled its final show of the season after a commu-

nity group involved with the play pulled out over the controversial ending. YouthNet Ottawa, a mental health resource through CHEO, was working with ex-

ecutive director Andrie Nel to make sure the theatre’s teenled play Private Thoughts was not sending unhealthy messages about suicide. The play, which was set

to open Friday, May 25, had three storylines including one following a teen named Amy as she contemplates suicide. The theme centred on communication and the im-

portance of speaking your feelings, particularly negative ones. Aware of the potential risks, Nel had reached out to the Ottawa Suicide Prevention Coalition for feedback on messaging, storylines and the play’s ending. YouthNet was going to provide resources and a talkback session for the audience after each show. However YouthNet pulled out during the final week of rehearsals because it did not agree with the play’s ending that allows the character to kill herself. “I think ultimately YouthNet was uncomfortable because leaving it as a suicide did not align with their organization’s message that suicide is not an option,” Nel said. She noted that while the ending was tragic, messages of hope were also layered into the play’s conclusion. YouthNet could not be reached for comment before this newspaper’s deadline. Without YouthNet’s support, Nel said cancelling the show was a matter of liability. “The optics of YouthNet pulling out and us disregarding YouthNet’s position would just put us so liable that we couldn’t do that. That’s not what JKT’s all about,” she said. The play was written by Nel and her daughter Sydney Miller, who is in Grade 9. In all three storylines – two of them quite lighthearted - it explores why we choose not

to communicate and the consequences we face when we don’t. Writing the controversial part of the script was a challenge, and Nel said she and her daughter “tried on” about four different endings – some that allowed Amy to die, some that brought her back in a spiritual form and another that used an “It’s a Wonderful Life” format to let her start again. The writers wanted to make sure the message hit home for everyone, and for this reason they purposely left Amy’s background story vague. “We wanted it to be vague enough that her character speaks very honestly to the audience and we wanted people to relate to her, not sort of put her aside because they can say, ‘that’s not my life,’” she said. Nel said the actors, who range in age from 14 to 16, were extremely disappointed to hear of the cancellation, particularly so close to curtain call. However Nel said they will hold a private function to perform the play for parents and close friends. “I have never been so proud of the kids and what they’ve pulled off. We need to show it,” she said. She added that parents in particular need to see first hand what the risks were and understand why the show was ultimately pulled. Tickets will be completely refunded.

Just Kiddin Theatre founder and executive director Andrie Nel said she was extremely disappointed by the decision to pull Private Thoughts, an original script that dealt with the consequences of not communicating - although she said “it was the right thing to do.” It was a controversial storyline that ends in a teen suicide that ultimately caused Nel to cancel the play, after mental health resource YouthNet decided not to support the play a week before curtain call.

Metcalfe resident Wayne Swales shows off his winning pickerel, which measured 21.5 inches after an all-day fishing derby in Osgoode on Saturday, May 12. His fish was more than twice the length of runner-up Deanne Duncan’s catch, which measured nine inches. The Osgoode-Carleton Snowmobile Club hosted its third annual derby as a fundraiser for the club, and had 41 anglers chase pike and pickerel through the Rideau River before gathering for drinks and celebration at the nearby Riverbend Pub. While Swales won the pickerel category, Metcalfe resident Chad Woolsey won the pike contest with a fish measuring 25.75 inches. That category was much closer; the runner-up Steven Cordeiro caught a 25 inch pike.

Pet Adoptions





This neutered male, tricolor Rottweiler and German Shepherd mix dog is approximately six years old. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on May 9, and is looking for a family who will take him for walks every day. Trips to the dog park would be great, too! Max has a friendly and polite way of meeting new people, and he will happily show you all of the commands that he has mastered. He gets along with other dogs and kids who are familiar with large dogs. He lived with cats in his previous home. Max needs an assertive and confident owner who will expose him to all sorts of new people and places, because Max can be a bit leery of new things. A crate would be a comfortable place for Max to feel at ease as he gets used to his new home.

This unaltered male, green and yellow Budgie is about a year old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray, and is one of two budgies currently available for adoption. Budgies are curious and playful birds that can form a strong bond with their owners. They do best in pairs or larger groups and like to feel like part of a flock. If you have room in your family for another flock member, contact the adoption centre to enquire about Echo! For more information about these or other ‘animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit

reaction, and you need to know the steps to take to appropriately deal with any situation that may arise. Make sure your dog is up-to-date on vaccinations because dogs can encounter unvaccinated animals while camping. Dog licenses should also be current, and microchip and identification tags must be up-to-date. A second set of tags with your cell phone number (or perhaps the number of the cottage or the campsite you will be staying) may be a good idea. Dogs can get stressed out when their routine changes. Too much stress can lead to erratic behavior, even illness. Getting your dog used to many scenarios in the weeks before your trip is easy and fun. Put up your tent in the back yard before you camp and let your dog get used to it. Bring your dog’s bed, and a tarp or plastic sheet to help keep it clean and dry – and to help keep your dog warm. Bringing the bed that a dog is most used to is as much behavioral support as comfort. Camping may mean an increase in physical activity for your dog, so make sure your dog has plenty of water. Even if your dog is well-behaved, you will need to keep him or her on a leash. It is unfair to other campers if your dog wanders into their campsite, and regardless of whether your dogs is friendly, he or she could run

into various scenarios and unfriendly people or animals. Make sure your dog’s leash, collar and buckle are in good condition and will not break if he or she suddenly lunges. Bring extras, just in case. Be sure to stoop and scoop! Your companion’s waste is not only a nuisance to other campers, but is bad for the environment, especially if you are near a water source. Bring a muzzle with you. Even if your dog is not aggressive and you never have to use it, it is a great safety precaution. If your dog is injured, his or her behaviour can and change and panic or fear may cause your dog to react differently than normal. The muzzle will prevent him or her from biting you or others trying to administer first aid. Don’t forget extra treats for your canine companion. It’s a treat for you to get away from it all, and you should try and make the experience extra special for your companion animal, too! You may not like certain types of bones or treats because of the mess they make in your home – but camping is a perfect outdoor place to offer these treats! Remember: your behavior with your dogs affects ALL campers with dogs! Keep your dog quiet, exhaust your dog with exercise, keep your dog on a leash at all times and never, ever leave your dog alone at a camp site. R0011412982

It’s that time of year when weekend getaways are appealing, and summer vacation time is just around the corner. The OHS receives a higher number of dogs surrendered or abandoned as strays in the summer months because their owners cannot find care for them during their holidays. But why not pick a getaway that’s fun for the whole family, furry members and all? Camping with your canines can be a lot of fun, and a learning experience for everyone involved. Don’t forget, all these new smells and sites can be very exciting for a dog, and you have to be able to restrain your canine companion in the presence of distractions, such as deer, squirrels and other critters. If you are going to camp with a dog (or dogs), it is important that the dog is well-behaved around other people (both adults and children) and animals. Your dog will need to understand when play time is over and how to be quiet. You may want to consider taking the dog to basic training which will help both you and the dog in the new environment – it will make you a better, more responsive dog owner, and it will help you keep your canine companion comfortable in the new place. You know your dog better than anyone. You know what may provoke a defensive

Food ‘n’ Stuff one cup buttermilk Filling: 1/4 - 1/3 cup softened butter (not margarine) 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 tsp. cinnamon Measure the dry ingredients for the dough into the food processor. Cover, and pulse for about six seconds to mix them. Your food processor should have a removable insert in the lid for pouring liquids. Take out the insert and with the motor running, pour the oil and buttermilk

through the opening into the dry ingredients. Continue processing until the dough forms a ball. This takes about one minute. Turn the dough out on a lightly-floured surface, and shape it into a ball. With a rolling pin, roll the dough out to make a rectangle 38 centimetres long and 25 centimetres wide. The long side should be facing you. For the filling, spread the softened butter over the dough, then sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon.

Rideau Canal to stay open all season

Challenge your Luck

Roll up the rectangle tightly, starting from the long side closest to you. Pinch the seam to seal. With a sharp knife, cut the roll in half, then mark each half into five portions of equal width. Cut through the roll where you’ve marked it. Marking the dough first, then cutting it, will help you in making slices that are even in width. Arrange the slices, cut side up, in a greased round 22 centimetre (nine-inch) cake pan. Place eight slices around the edge of the pan and two in the middle. This gives them room to expand as they bake. Bake at 400 F (200 C) for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven, and set the pan on a cake rack. Cool for five minutes in the pan before serving. Makes 10 buns.

EMC news – The length of the Rideau Canal season will remain unchanged for 2012. Environment Minister Peter Kent, who is responsible for Parks Canada, announced just as the canal was opening on Friday, May 18 that the world heritage site will stay open for its entire regular season until October 10.



In April, a Parks Canada memo outlined the need for cuts to season length, operating hours and staffing to make up for a $29.2 million budget cut. It was unclear at the time when or how those changes would take affect. Kent’s announcement is not permanent, and he said the canal season will still be altered in 2013.

He said Parks Canada will “work closely” with local stakeholders to minimize impact. Communities along the corridor have expressed dismay at the cuts, because their tourism industries depend on the canal. Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre said in a statement he was happy with Kent’s announcement.

“I am pleased that the communities in my riding will now have the opportunity to consult with Parks Canada before any changes are made,” he said. Parks Canada spokesperson Carol Sheedy said in April that while services have remained the same, boater traffic has decreased by a third in the past 25 years.

McRae disappointed by bridge delays Eddie Rwema

forming them that city staff and the contractor, Louis W. Bray Construction Ltd., agreed that the “most expedient solution” would be to tear down the existing main tower, which is a curved, A-frame support with a circle cut out to echo the city’s logo. McRae said the bridge delays have denied residents a piece of infrastructure that they should be using now. “It represents lack of a safe passage into a very busy tran-

Association president John Sankey said the association has been left guessing about the progress of the project since the city first announced the demolition. However, Coun. McRae said the city has been transparent about the contractor’s deficiencies with the bridge. “To that extent I issued a letter that was mailed to 13,848 residents in our community with an update,” said McRae. The bridge was supposed to be open for pedestrians and cy-

sit hub, into a recreational area for walking and cycling and also denies people access to the shopping area,” said McRae. Though the city has not yet released an updated completion date for the project, McRae said the preliminary schedule presented by the contractor anticipates that rebuilding of the new main tower to its current stage will begin towards the end of May and take approximately 12 weeks. The Hunt Club Community

clists to travel from Cahill Drive West and the South Keys plaza last fall, with final landscaping touches planned for this spring. City spokeswoman Jocelyne Turner said the city would be providing timelines of the project once the demolition is complete. “At this time we are still waiting for final timelines from the contractor,” said Turner. Sankey said his community was upset by the delay of the project, but at the same time re-

lieved because the concrete was far too badly damaged. “We are very relieved that the company decided that they wouldn’t fight that decision but instead build it properly,” he said. When finished, the approximately $5 million bridge will be a state-of-the-art piece of architecture, designed in part to provide a ‘wow factor’ for visitors entering the city from the Ottawa International Airport.


EMC news – River Ward Coun. Maria McRae wants the Airport Parkway pedestrian bridge built as quickly as possible to provide residents with a safe passage to cross in the South Keys area. Construction crews began demolishing the incomplete pedestrian bridge after the work crew began experiencing problems with the concrete. Last month McRae sent an email to city councillors in-

Mary’s dolls always received the royal treatment


MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories was little money for such frivolity. One of my dolls was not one you could cuddle. First of all, I was frightened she might break. You see, her arms, legs and face were made of china. Aunt Lizzie had brought it all the way from Regina one year, not taking a chance on sending it in the hand-medown box that came regularly filled with cast-offs her sons could no longer wear. This one came with a name already on a little tag pinned to her lacy dress. It wasn’t


o me, my dolls were real little people. Babies, really. I loved every one of them and made awfully sure I treated each of them equally. All in like favour, as was the saying back then. There weren’t two alike. I had about six, all precious to me. They were all shapes and sizes, with some I could cuddle, as if they were real babies and had to be handled with special care. Although I tried not to show it, one of my most precious dolls was one I got as a surprise one Christmas. I had longed for it after seeing it in the Five and Dime Store in Renfrew, sure I would never have it. But there it was under the tree on that wonderful day back in the 1930s, when there

a name I would have ever picked for such a beautiful doll. She was named Claire, but I thought she was much more suited to be called Margaret. Of course, my love for Princess Margaret Rose had a lot to do with my choice. I could spend hours playing with my dolls. I dressed and undressed them, sat them in the swing, making it into a pretend school room and took on the persona of Miss Crosby, our teacher at the Northcote School. Of course, I was never as strict as was Miss Crosby. Other than the china doll and the one I got as a Christmas surprise, there was nothing exceptional about my other dolls. One or two had the paint almost worn off their faces before I learned you couldn’t wash them with soap and water. But I loved them just as dearly as the others. I went through a real ritual before I went to bed at night. Father, one Christmas, had made me a doll crib. Pale blue. It was big enough

And then I checked each doll to make sure it was in what I thought was a comfortable position. Only then was I ready for bed. Often a miracle happened over the night. While I was asleep in my bed upstairs, I wouldn’t hear it, but when I got up in the morning, I would see that there had been a stirring during the night. I would remember exactly how I had placed the dolls in the little blue crib. But they would have moved. One or two would have changed places. Wasn’t Sally at the foot of the crib the night before? And now she was cuddled at the head, with her face turned to the kitchen wall. I would marvel at the miracle before my eyes. My dolls really were babies after all. Hadn’t this just proved it? It would be many years before I could come close to explaining the miracle that I saw some mornings in the kitchen of that old log house. Was it a real miracle? Was it fantasy? Or was it my beloved sister Audrey, who was always out of bed long before me in the morning, who moved the dolls around so that her little sister would cling to a childhood dream for just a few years longer?

to hold most of my dolls, except the china one because I couldn’t take a chance on her being broken through the night from the thrashing about of one of her crib mates. Yes, I was sure, they breathed, turned in the crib and like me and my sister, pushed and shoved to get a share of the bed. So this doll slept on a little padded quilt Mother made. It was on the floor beside the crib and well away from the path of anyone who might be making a trip through the kitchen during the night. At bedtime, before I climbed the stairs to the big hall which served as a bedroom for Audrey and me, I gathered my dolls around me and crouched on the floor beside the little blue crib. I sang a song to the dolls. Then, just like Mother did before we climbed into our beds upstairs, I closed my eyes and said a soft prayer under my breath that they would be safe during the night. I placed them on the flannelette mattress Mother had made, which matched the nightgown I myself wore to bed. I made sure they were on their backs, the china doll on the mat at the foot of the crib and then I covered them gently with the little blanket Mother had also made out a flannelette remnant.

Council size, boroughs on agenda Staff

EMC news – Reducing the number of city wards and creating a borough system will likely be on city council’s agenda later this year. Addressing his one outstanding campaign promise during an online live chat hosted by Metroland reporter Laura Mueller on May 17, Watson said he would like to see the size of council reduced before the next municipal election in 2014. “For our city, compared to almost every other Canadian city, we have a higher number of elected officials. I would like to see tat [sic] reduced in time for the next election,” Watson wrote in the live chat that appears monthly on his website, “I made a commitment to bring forward this term of council, and I hope to do that before the end of this year to seek public and council input,” he added. Watson proposed the borough system in August of 2010 during the municipal election campaign, saying it could help reduce the disconnect some Ottawans still feel more than a decade after amalgamation.

Taurus, it’s all about your career goals this week. If you run your own company, use this time to scout for new business. If not, it’s time to seek a new position. It’s an exciting time for you, Gemini. You may decide to head to the airport and book a trip somewhere off the beaten path. Otherwise, a series of day trips could be fun.


Cancer, you have finances on the mind, and with good reason and mostly out of necessity. That is because you’ve had a few expensive purchases that are tallying up.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance.


< Working in a health food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than what anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL < My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON < I finally found the right approach to lose weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON < I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN <Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

Heartburn Reflux

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, pasta, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy # 7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box.

< Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC < Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all #39 family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA< Very happy with acid reflux relief.

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:< Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions #1 suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON <My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA<I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON<Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.<For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC<Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.
