EMC news - A new park will honour a long-time Manotick resident and World War II veteran. Major William Ross Chamberlain joined the Canadian Armed Forces in November 1941 and served in Northwest Europe, Africa, Italy and Indo-China throughout the Second World War. When he returned home in 1946, he remained a regular member of the Canadian Army until 1962 when he retired and became a teacher.

Chamberlain settled in Toronto after the war, but in 1958 moved his family to a house on Rideau Valley Drive just outside the small village of Manotick. Today, Minto Communities plans to build a neighbourhood park in his name just steps from his home of 38 years, in the new Mahogany development. “Our family is really happy about the park,” said Chamberlainʼs daughter Deborah Rosenlund, who attended a public information meeting on May 30 to hear more details.

The city was originally planning to name a street after her father, but a park is nicer, she said. “Our father was a dynamic gardener so itʼs much better than a street,” Rosenlund said. Minto is building its first substantial park in its Mahogany development as part of a front-end agreement with the city. Instead of having the city build the park, Minto will construct it and the city will pay it back. Major W. Ross Chamberlain Park, which is set to open this summer, is bordered by

Bridgeport Street and Alabaster Heights where the CHEO dream home is currently under construction. It will include junior and senior play structures, a mini soccer field, a gathering place with a picnic table and some naturalized areas. A commemorative plaque will explain some of Chamberlainʼs history and importance to the village. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said these initiatives help tie new and old together. “We talk about growth needing to enhance the vil-

lage rather than detract from it, and I think this does that,” he said. “Itʼs all about how you integrate new and old.” PARK FEATURES

The park will include a junior play structure for kids aged two to five and a senior play structure for kids aged five to 12. Both are accessible, and the playground floor is made of a cedar wood fibre that is safer for falls and accessible for wheelchairs. See SOCCER, page 23

Play structure grand opening a community celebration Jessica Cunha

EMC news - Thanks to the support of the community, Manotick Public

School held a grand opening for two new play structures on May 25. In only 20 months, the school was able to fundraise $60,000 to replace both the kindergarten and the grade

school age play structures. “The local community has been very generous with us,” said Emma Kinnaird, fundraising co-ordinator for the school council. Didn’t get your

the results of the fundraising are a “grand accomplishment” for the school. “I know how difficult it was to see over the course of 2011 to see the play structures come down,” he said during the grand opening of the new structures. “The heart of the Manotick community came together. “Iʼm extremely proud of this community and itʼs commitment to this school.” Seven-year-old Finley Kinnaird, a Grade 1 student at the school, was given the honour of cutting the ribbon to officially declare the play structures open. “This is a remarkable and noteworthy accomplishment,” said Nordman.

At first, the school was only supposed to lose its kindergarten structure, but upon further inspection, the school age playground set was also closed. “It was a bit of a surprise,” said Rob Maxwell, chair of the school council. But thanks to a number of individuals, families and businesses, the school was able to raise enough to replace both play structures – with a little left over. “Nothing this significant has happened at this school in such a short time,” said Maxwell. The school will build an outdoor classroom with the left over funds, so students can take advantage of learning outside. Principal Andrew Nordman said

Low AGM turnout means MCVA is working Audit exemption motion backfires, creates volunteer auditor position Emma Jackson

WHATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S WORKING

Vice president Pierre Viau led the group in an exercise to determine whatĘźs working, whatĘźs not working and whatĘźs missing from the associationĘźs activities. The group overwhelmingly agreed that communication to members and community activities like Shiverfest, Picnic in the Park and the Soapbox Derby are deďŹ nitely working. One resident suggested that more events could be added, including a community garage sale. Several people mentioned that the associationĘźs membership drive is not yet working, and that more members and participants are needed. Advocacy work on truck and trafďŹ c issues through the village also came up under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;not workingâ&#x20AC;? column because the slow process has yet to see results with the city. Under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;missingâ&#x20AC;? category, residents noted that more volunteers are needed, as well as more partnerships with local schools and community organizations. A boat launch near the library branch is also missing, as is an outdoor music venue.

EMC news - Low turnout at the Manotick Village and Community AssociationĘźs annual general meeting could just be a sign that the associationĘźs doing a good job. That was the sentiment from several residents who came to the Manotick legion on Tuesday, May 28 to hear from their association and get updates on community issues. About 25 people turned up at the meeting, including Rideau-Goulbourn Scott Moffatt who congratulated the board on pushing forward with important village projects and for offering residents a chance to give feedback on the cityĘźs ofďŹ cial plan review earlier this spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The MVCA and our ofďŹ ce have been NEW MEMBERS working closely on many things,â&#x20AC;?

New board members wanted at Greely AGM Canada Day show to go off with a bang Emma Jackson

EMC news - The Greely Community Association is hoping new blood will fill out the executive board ranks at its annual general meeting on June 12. President Bruce Brayman has been in his position for three years, and last year at the end of his twoyear term the board had to amend

the constitution to allow Brayman an extended term since no one stepped forward to replace him. That canĘźt continue, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have no problem helping, but IĘźm turning into an emperor,â&#x20AC;? Brayman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;IĘźve been running this too long and I donĘźt think itĘźs healthy.â&#x20AC;? Other positions, such as treasurer and secretary, are also open for nominations. Like many community associations, the Greely board faces the age-old problem of too many jobs and not enough willing volunteers. Brayman said having new faces at the monthly meetings and an

increased interest in helping with events like Canada Day celebrations and the winter carnival would go a long way to keeping the association afloat. The meeting will be held at the Greely Community Centre on Wednesday, June 12 beginning at 7 p.m. All Greely residents are welcome, even if they arenĘźt members. The board will offer a financial report and Brayman will deliver a more formal presidentĘźs report outlining what the association has accomplished over the past few years. The association also hopes to

have Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson update residents about ongoing issues in the ward. CANADA DAY

The Canada Day planning committee is hoping to get the event really booming this year, with an extra $5,000 available to put toward the fireworks display behind the community centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weĘźre trying to do is increase our fireworks budget by 50 per centâ&#x20AC;? to $15,000, Brayman said. He said government support is strong, but they will be soliciting

local businesses for sponsorships this month. The Canada Day celebration will start at 5 p.m. with kidsĘź games, bouncy castles and a barbecue. Local firefighters will offer demonstrations and Terry McGovernĘźs Retrosonics will offer live music throughout the evening. The Greely Idol finalists will sing O Canada as well as a few other songs before the fireworks start at 10 p.m. Brayman said the event coordinators are always looking for volunteers.

Sparkle the dragon taking off Kids to recreate dragon’s adventure before Osgoode Medieval Fest Emma Jackson


The Township of Osgoode Care Centre’s community outreach committee has been busier than ever in 2013 as it continues to fundraise for much-needed improvements throughout the long-term care facility. Back row, from left: volunteers Lorraine O’Byrne, Susan Field, Maryann Sunstrum, Kay Porteous and Judy Sully. Front row, community outreach director Wendy Hill and volunteer Elsie Patterson. Committee members missing from the photo include Paddy Somers, Audrey Charlebois, Carol Cain, Donna Warren, Kim Faith and Vera Mitchell.

Care centre group busier than ever Emma Jackson

EMC news - It may look like a hen party, but itʼs closer to a bee hive at the Osgoode Care Centreʼs weekly community relations committee meetings. On Wednesday, May 29 ideas flew back and forth and discussion slipped easily from serious work to playful teasing and back again. The 12-member volunteer committee, led by the care centreʼs director of community relations Wendy Hill, has been busier than ever this year as the care centre continues to fundraise toward its $500,000 goal for home improvements. Since last September the committee has launched a memorial wish tree and held its “Busting out the Brews” blues and beer tast-

ing night. Most recently it hosted a community garage sale at the Lions Den in Metcalfe on June 1. But with summer season upon us the women arenʼt slowing down. Various members have plans to drop in on community events across the region to promote the care centre and make partnerships, and the group is busy working on a firemenʼs calendar with the help of the volunteer firefighters at Station 91 in Metcalfe. The photo shoots begin in June, but the monthly models wonʼt be as scantily clad as some might (want to) imagine. Instead, the firefighters will partner with residents at the care centre to take funny and ironic photos: for instance, one month might feature a resident driving

the fire truck while a firefighter tries to catch up. “Weʼll keep it tasteful but with a bit of humour,” said Hill. “A tiny bit of humour, a little bit of risk.” She said the calendars will benefit the fire station as much as the care centre, and will promote community partnerships. “Itʼs promoting the fire station and the care centre working together,” Hill said. “Weʼre supporting each other.” The calendars will be ready for sale in August, and the group is looking for monthly page sponsors. The committee is also working on plans for a lighthouse reunion party in Osgoode on July 27. Music and dancing will bring back memories for many residents who used to dance the night away at the old dance hall along the river.

EMC news – Sparkleʼs taking a holiday, but first the Osgoode dragon needs guidance from the wisest villagers of all: kids. For the second year, kids under 16 can envision an adventure for the Osgoode Medieval Festivalʼs fire-breathing mascot, Sparkle, as part of a creative writing and art contest. This yearʼs theme will send Sparkle on a holiday, either through a piece of artwork or a written story. Winners will take home a bag of Kingʼs gold: $30 for first prize and $20 for second. Organizer Lesley Wilson said this yearʼs contest is more inclusive, allowing children who can not read or write to have their stories transcribed, as long as the transcriber agrees not to edit the text. Those who prefer to recreate Sparkleʼs adventure visually can use any medium they like: a drawing, collage, embroidery or a quilt will all be given equal weight. The submissions must be post-marked June 15, and judges will make their decisions in time for the festivalʼs education day on Friday, July 12. All of the submissions will be on display throughout the festival, which runs from July 12 to 14. Wilson said she hopes the contest will broaden some horizons. “We wanted to ... encourage kids to use their own imagination and do some research,” she said. “If Sparkle is going on a holiday theyʼd have to give some thought to where and what Sparkle would need,

and what the impact of that visit might be.” Wilson said Sparkle – who is not identified by gender – encompasses love, empathy and peace. By sending the small-town dragon into the wider world, Sparkle may be exposed to some diversity and might have to interact with different cultures, Wilson said. “What weʼre trying to do is have them put themselves into Sparkleʼs (head),” she added. Writers and artists can choose to identify a gender for Sparkle, but itʼs not necessary, Wilson said.

The sixth annual Osgoode Medieval Festival draws thousands of visitors to the market square on Osgoode Main Street every year. The weekend event includes professional jousting, dancing, sword play, kidsʼ games, live music, a horseshoe competition and vendors. A Kingʼs Feast on Saturday night will provide a rollicking evening of entertainment, with a high possibility of intrigue and betrayal unfolding right in front of guestsʼ eyes. Education Day on Friday, July 12 invites children ages four to 14 to learn about medieval chivalry, armour, music and more. For information about the festival visit or email

Just say no to grow-op registry


uyer beware. And buyers of really big items – like a house – should be very wary indeed. Members of the Ontario Real Estate Association are calling on the province to create a provincial database of all homes that have been used as marijuana grow-ops or drug labs. There is a risk that a former grow-op could contain moulds and that a chemical lab location could have dangerous residues. A local realtor suggests a provincial list of these homes could be consulted by would-be home buyers before signing for a new home. It sounds like a reasonable plan until the effectiveness and cost of a drug house registry is considered. Who will pay to create the database, and more importantly, who will pay to keep it updated? No one wants to download busy-work onto police officers in multiple jurisdictions – municipal, OPP and RCMP – when they could be solving crimes or preventing them. The real estate agentsʼ wish list would also be sadly incomplete. Police only know about homes where they find grow-ops or drug labs, leaving all the other illicit locations off any provincial registry. And it turns out there are pay-per-use websites that home seekers can check to learn the history of a

home. Given the size of a home purchase, the cost of adding in a history check doesnʼt seem onerous. Then thereʼs the issue of spending public funds to create a database that will benefit only one part of the population. If you can afford a house, youʼre fortunate. Buying a house is a private transaction, so the responsibility should fall on the parties involved to do their due diligence. If we as a society mandate that the province must keep tabs on homes others may not want to buy, how long will it be until we need a registry of homes where murders have occurred? How about a list of houses with Bad Mojo or a report of ghosts? Buyer beware is a fact of life. Plus we have laws to dissuade anyone from selling a damaged home without telling the buyer. If someone knowingly sells a house and does not inform the buyer of hidden damage – from any source – they could face charges of fraud. No one should have to live in a mouldy or damaged home, so people shopping for a house should do everything they can to make sure their purchase is healthy. If they hire a real estate agent, they should be confident that the agent has their best interests at heart and has done all possible research on their dream home.


Canada Post takes a flyer with junk mail plea


hances are you received a peculiar letter from Canada Post recently. It told you that you are part of a Canada Post database of people who had requested that no flyers be delivered. You might have forgotten that you ever did that. The letter then asked you to reconsider, by mailing in a postage-free card to Canada Postʼs “Consumersʼ Choice Program” saying that you would like to receive unaddressed mail at your address. Notice how big organizations, when they are urging you to accept something unpleasant, always give it a name like “Consumerʼs Choice”? And speaking of unaddressed, this letter from Canada Post was addressed to “Dear Occupant.” Noting that the mailing was printed on sustainable paper that can be recycled, Canada Post told you that by refusing to accept unaddressed mail – which some cranky people insist on calling junk mail – we were missing out on coupons, catalogues, fundraising appeals from charities, municipal and community notices and product samples. Unaddressed mail, Canada Post says “can save you money and keep you connected with your local community.” What is this all about, really? Well, news

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town reports say Canada Post lost money last year. As to the unaddressed mail, hereʼs a quote from a Canada Post spokesperson, seen in the National Post: “We deliver all types of mail and all are important to the senders. And we owe it to those who pay for the service to receive the most effective service for their dollars.” In other words: companies pay us money to put those flyers in mailboxes and theyʼre leaning on us to get more mailboxes. Things have come to a pretty pass for a once-proud organization – having to plead with customers to accept junk mail, masking its plea as an offer to help us keep connected with our local community. Of course, we all know why. Many Canadians, perhaps most, now receive their personal mail – what we used to call “letPublished weekly by:

ters” – electronically. You may have the odd Luddite friend or eccentric uncle who still handwrites a letter, puts it in an envelope and puts a stamp on it, but thatʼs about it. The great majority of communications you receive are on your computer. That even goes for junk mail, which is not in short supply in the digital world either. So we can understand that Canada Post is hurting and why, but there must be a more creative and positive way to be part of the solution than simply agreeing to receive more mail that we will never read (and causes more trees to be cut down). Apparently the most obvious solution – asking companies, political parties and other organizations to put their stuff in envelopes and buy stamps like the rest of us – wouldnʼt fly with Canada Postʼs partners in unaddressed mail. But maybe something else would work. For example, we would be far more receptive to a Canada Post campaign urging us to sit down and handwrite an angry letter to a politician, or a postcard to a grandchild, or a letter to the editor about something silly going on in the world, such as Canada Post trying to get us to accept junk mail. Canada Post could even make a side dollar or two by offering courses in handwriting,

which some of us have forgotten how to do. Perhaps we could even learn to write on sustainable paper that can be recycled. If we were to write such letters, we would have to buy stamps, which would be good for Canada Post. People on the receiving end – except maybe for the politicians – would be happy to get something in their mailboxes that didnʼt contain coupons or photographs of John Baird. True, all of this would mean that we would be using more paper and contributing to the destruction of the worldʼs forests. But whatʼs more important, a bunch of trees or the future of Canada Post?

Brush and clay come together for annual art show Emma Jackson

EMC news - Two rural Ottawa artists are once again coming together for an annual pottery and painting show in Kars. North Gower painter Ann Gruchy and Kars potter Marie Paquette have become quite the team since they began “Of Brush and Clay” in Paquetteʼs home nine years ago. Now they tag-team the September Discovery Tour through rural south Ottawa, and this year will have a joint booth at the North Gower farmersʼ market. On June 8 and 9, though, customers can meet Paquette and Gruchy in the comfort of Paquetteʼs home at 1584 Sobeau Ct. in Kars. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., both artists will have new works on display, including a small exhibit from this yearʼs “kimono” theme. The kimono theme grew out of some of Gruchyʼs abstract work, in which she could see elements and shapes of kimonos. Paquette, who was experimenting with a new form in her own work, also started to see kimonos in her creations.

The next step was for the pair to begin exploring the theme in earnest. Gruchy and Paquette both created abstract pieces that evoke the essence of kimonos: colour blocking, flowing fabric and rich hues. Within the theme, the pair also switched mediums, as is tradition: Paquette took up the canvas while Gruchy experimented with clay. While the annual exercise has yielded some sales in the past, it mostly serves to push the artists out of their comfort zone. “It shows me how difficult pottery is, how difficult ceramics is,” Gruchy said. Waiting seems to the hardest part. While Gruchy can paint up until the night before the show if she wants to, Paquetteʼs medium requires patience while the clay dries and then is fired in the kiln several times over the span of a week or more. As a result, Paquette is much more accepting of her friendʼs paint brush. “The year of the tulips (theme) I got carried away. I had done watercolours before and it was fun, so I painted all

Realtors renew push for provincial grow-op registry Laura Mueller

EMC news - Ontario residents are still at risk of unknowingly buying a home that housed a marijuana-growing operation or drug lab, the provincial real estate association said on May 28 as it renewed its push for a provincial registry. As members of the Ontario Real Estate Association gathered west of the city in Perth, Ottawa real estate agent and Riverside South resident Pat Verge called on the provincial government to act now to let the public know when a home has been damaged or its safety compromised by housing a growing operation . Verge called the prevalence of grow-ops in Ottawa “alarming” and said everyone has a right to know if thatʼs what they are buying – or in her case, selling. Itʼs not to say that those homes shouldnʼt be sold to new owners, Verge said. But people should be aware that the home is damaged because it means

they may have to spend upwards of $100,000 to $150,000 to repair it and make it safe.

Verge called the prevalence of grow-ops “alarming” and everyone has a right to know if that’s what they are buying – or in her case, selling. One of the main concerns is mould that grows as a result of the moist conditions needed to grow marijuana plants, but faulty electrical wiring used to conceal heavy power use can also be a problem. If the home is used as a lab to make drugs such as methamphetamine, harmful chemicals could remain. “I almost sold one,” Verge said. Verge is allergic to mould and her suspicions were aroused when she be-

gan sneezing in the home she was selling. She called the police and “went up the ladder” to track paperwork that could confirm her suspicions. “I was just so upset,” Verge said. “The thought of how I could do that to a family …” The city has made baby steps in the right direction, Verge said. The Ottawa police have a list of known grow-op locations where charges have been laid, but that list only dates back three months. Large operations that are busted by the RCMP arenʼt included on that list. And the list doesnʼt acknowledge the real number of growing operations that the police may never find out about. At any give time, it is estimated there are 300 to 400 active grow ops in Ottawa, police have told Verge. Another recent local improvement was a by-

law passed last fall that will force people who own homes that become grow ops to pay for them to be fixed. Verge said she gives the city full credit for working to address the issue. ““But we need provincial leadership on this problem,” she said. “It isnʼt just in Ottawa where people are unknowingly purchasing former grow ops and clandestine laboratories – itʼs right across Ontario.” There are ways to find out about the history of a home – for a price. Websites like provide home histories, but they charge a fee. That information should be publically accessible, Verge said. The best way to do that would be to register the fact that it was a grow op – and that it has been repaired – on the homeʼs title.


Nine-year-old St. Leonard Catholic School student Kayleigh Styles sings Les Miserables song “I Dreamed a Dream” at the first round of auditions for Osgoode’s Got Talent on May 30 at the Osgoode Youth Association. Semi-finalists from two auditions – the next being June 20 – will perform at the Osgoode community Canada Day celebration, where the audience will ultimately crown the winner. This is a trial run for the inaugural event, according to organizers Alan and Debbie Gallagher.

Cowbells just noisy life lessons

Emma Jackson

EMC sports - I am not a runner. IĘźm just generally not an athlete, and my gym phobia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; marked with more than a few panic attacks, tears and tantrums â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is well established. My good friend Courtney caught me on a particularly optimistic day in January when she convinced me to register for the ďŹ ve kilometre run on Ottawa Race Weekend. Why not, I thought. It was ďŹ ve months away and I wouldnĘźt have to think about it for four of them. But then I did start thinking about it. And I panicked. What if I canĘźt ďŹ nish? What if I trip in the ďŹ nal moments, sploshing over the ďŹ nish line like a wet teabag? What about all those people watching: what will they think when my

face goes the colour of tomato soup and they see my crappy old runners, the same ones I bought 12 years ago for Grade 9 gym class? When the weather warmed up I began jogging around my neighbourhood. I was doing pretty well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only once did I don my entire running outďŹ t, complete the necessary pacing, hand shaking and tear swallowing that is my running ritual, then strip it all off to take a guilt-laden nap instead. A week before the race, I managed to run 4.9 kilometres with only a few brief walk breaks. I was encouraged, but that didnĘźt stop my growing anxiety as Saturday ticked closer. WeĘźve all heard that a positive attitude brings positive results. IĘźd be lying if I said those mantras donĘźt usually make me roll my eyes and pour another glass of wine. ItĘźs just easier to be negative. To be hopeful would set me up for failure; if I was too optimistic, I risked missing the bar I had raised for myself. To seem negative, disinterested or indifferent about the raceĘźs outcome meant I wouldnĘźt disappoint anyone

if my pessimistic predictions came true. Race day arrived. I went early to grab my kit at the race expo in the Ottawa Convention Centre â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an incredibly well-oiled operation, I must say â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and immediately began to feel the panic in my chest. I blinked hard to keep the tears from falling as I rode the escalator to the T-shirt station. I held it together until I was back in the car. And then I looked at my bib: 29028. It was real; it was happening in less than ďŹ ve hours. I felt a stirring behind the panic, and it simmered there for an hour before I could name it for what it was: excitement. Could it be? Could I actually be looking forward to this torment I had been dreading for the better part of 2013? I began to calm down. Courtney picked me up and we fought trafďŹ c into the downtown core. We parked far enough away that we were nice and limber by the time we found our other running friends, Sam and Kait, and squeezed into the yellow corral to wait behind the Elgin

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013


Manotick News reporter Emma Jackson ran her first five kilometre race on Saturday, May 25 as part of Ottawa Race Weekend. Street start line. When the run ďŹ nally started, a tangible feeling of communal support began to swirl through the 8,000-strong horde of runners working their way up Elgin. It reminded us that everyone was in this together: everyone was going to sweat, feel some pain and think about giving up. Not surprisingly, that helped. It also helped that there was no way to go any faster than the crowd in front of us, not at least until we spread out a bit down Colonel By Drive. It forced me to pace myself â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something I had failed to do in my own running regime â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I was surprised how good I felt at the four-kilometre mark. ThatĘźs usually when I have to picture a bottle of wine in front of me and hordes of zombies behind in order to keep running. But more than anything the communal support came from the sidelines. While IĘźm not one to enjoy being yelled at by strangers, the cheers, cowbells and calls

of encouragement from spectators along the route were tantamount to a triple espresso. Besides, who could possibly consider stopping when these people so desperately wanted you to keep going? Our feet miraculously continued to carry us forward. Of course, the best pickme-up came with only 400 metres left, when I was truly starting to believe the ďŹ nish line would never come. Coming up the side, we could hear a group of people screaming and yelling. The cowbells were clanging and we could hear our names carried on the chilly wind. They were screaming for us! Our friends had come, cowbells in tow, to give us those cheers and high ďŹ ves we so badly needed. The sight of my smiling husband and all my friends there to support me gave me enough pep to get over that ďŹ nish line with energy to spare and a grin on my face. It was over; they had helped me survive.

Europe Your Way

The next day, as the marathon and half-marathon passed by my house in Hintonburg, I returned the favour. For two hours my friends and I greeted friends and strangers with chants, cheers and cowbells. We received high ďŹ ves, smiles and ďŹ st pumps in return. Posts on Twitter and Facebook spoke to how much the cheering crowds helped those admirable endurance runners make it to the end. This weekend I ran a ďŹ vekilometre race, but I also discovered why people love running in Ottawa. ItĘźs not the cityĘźs beauty, the fast courses or the medals at the end, although thatĘźs part of it. ItĘźs the family thatĘźs born when everyone comes together to support each other on their personal journeys to the ďŹ nish line and beyond. The lesson, of course, can be applied in and out of our sneakers: when we come together, we can accomplish anything. IĘźve got only one thing to say about that: more cowbell.

Race weekend sees record turnout Emma Jackson

EMC sports - More than 40,000 people crossed the ďŹ nish line as part of Ottawa Race Weekend. This was the 39th annual edition of the event on May 25 and 26, which included seven races ranging from a two-kilometre family race to a full 42-km marathon. The races began downtown at the corner of Elgin Street and Laurier Avenue at 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 25 with the 2K event. At 5 p.m., more than 8,000 runners hit the streets for the 5K event, and at 6:30 p.m. the streets were again pummeled by the feet of 9,000 runners aiming for a ďŹ nish line 10K away. On Sunday, the marathon started bright and early at 7 a.m. with the half-marathon following at 9 a.m. The marathon winnerĘźs circle was dominated by runners from Ethiopia and Kenya, with Tariku Jufar taking the top spot with

a time of 2:08:04. The lead Canadian Rob Watson snuck into 10th place with 2:18:33. Ottawa resident Josh Karanja won the half marathon in 1:07:47. Three of the top ďŹ ve halfmarathon winners were from Ottawa, and all ďŹ ve were Canadian. With so many people coming into the city for the weekend, spokeswoman Annie Boucher said organizers have the system down pat after 39 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are always little tweaks IĘźm sure, a fencing thing or something, but as far as big tweaks or changes I didnĘźt hear of anything,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think things went pretty smoothly.â&#x20AC;? The event was also a fundraiser, partnering with 28 different charities to give people more reason to run. The Ottawa Hospital Foundation raised more than $405,000. Boucher said it is difďŹ cult to know exactly how much money was raised, but in 2012 runners collected close to $1 million for charitable organizations.

Once given a chance, dandelions had a place at the table said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plain and simple weeds. I never heard of anyone eating weeds.â&#x20AC;? We were at the breakfast table and we ďŹ ve children were looking at Mother and Father as if we were watching a tennis match. I didnĘźt

think Father was going to win this one. The subject under discussion was dandelions. They covered what we called a lawn. It was really just our front yard, but since we didnĘźt own a lawn mower when the grass got too high, one of the brothers

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories tackled it with a scythe. It was hard to tell what was grass and what was dandelions. Now, it wasnĘźt unusual for Father to whip up a German meal. In fact, we all enjoyed what he cooked â&#x20AC;&#x201C; except fried blood pudding which I even had trouble looking at when it came to the table. When he fried sauerkraut, it never tasted at all like the batch Mother would make. Father would rinse it many times, put it in a fry pan with butter and chopped onions and it wasnĘźt ready to eat until it had turned a golden brown. His German potato pancakes were usually made on a Sunday night. The potatoes were shredded, rinsed, squeezed dry, and then mixed with eggs and of course, chopped onions. We kept him busy at the Findlay Oval turning out his pancakes barely giving him time to eat them himself, we loved them so much. Of course, they were well lathered with butter and maple syrup too. Now it was dandelions. Well, I was with Mother on this one -- I had no desire to eat weeds that were pulled out of the front yard where goodness knows what animal had trampled all over them. No siree. That Saturday morning Father ordered the boys to meet him in the yard with their jackknives. He was carrying a milk pail and got down on his knees right in the middle of the yard and showed the brothers how to dig up a dandelion, right down to and including the root. It didnĘźt take long to ďŹ ll the milk pail. He hauled the pail over to the cement step at the pump and ďŹ lled it with water. He sloshed the dandelions around with his arm in the pail up to his elbow, dumped the water out, and repeated the performance. Mother was standing at the kitchen door with her arms folded across her chest, as if defying Father to bring the weeds into the house. Well, thatĘźs exactly what he intended on doing. He laid out a spanking clean tea towel on the bake table and shook what water he could

off the dandelions and laid them out ďŹ&#x201A;at, cutting off the long roots. Then he folded the towel over the pile of weeds and patted it with his ďŹ&#x201A;attened hand. What amazed me was that all the time this was going on, there wasnĘźt a word spoken between Mother and Father. It was as if they hadnĘźt laid eyes on each in their entire lives. Father took down a big pot from the shelf over the stove and piled in the dandelions. He poured in a scant dipper of water, sprinkled in a handful of salt and slid the pot to the front of the Findlay Oval. Then he went over to his rocking chair, lit his pipe, crossed his legs and waited. The table had already been set for dinner. We always had dinner at noon hour -- supper was what we had at night, and Mother had roast pork and potatoes in the oven. It looked very much like we had a choice: either eat the dandelions as a vegetable, or settle for sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. He took the wood spoon, dug it into the butter dish, almost emptying it, and swirled it into the dandelions. He set the bowl in the middle of the table and we all looked at it, no one daring to be the ďŹ rst one to dig in. Emerson, the most daring of the lot of us, took his fork and tested one boiled leaf. I never took my eyes off him. He rolled it around in his mouth, and reached out for the bowl, ladling a heaping pile on his plate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just as good as your potato pancakes,â&#x20AC;? he said. Well, it didnĘźt take long for the rest of us to take a small bite, which led to us piling the dandelions on our plates and even Mother, dared to taste a fork full. It didnĘźt take long for Mother to admit that the dandelions had a place on our dinner table. She did demand to oversee the washing of every last leaf, however. From that Saturday, like FatherĘźs potato pancakes and fried sauerkraut, his boiled dandelions often found their way to our plates.

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Add strawberry mixture, folding to combine just until no specks of flour remain, about three minutes. (Do not over-work the mixture.) Finely chop remaining strawberries and fold into the batter. Spread into prepared pan, smoothing the top. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for one hour or until tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Transfer to rack and let cool for 30 minutes. Run a knife around the inside of pan to loosen and invert the loaf pan to remove. Place it right side up on a rack and cool completely. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to three days or overwrap and freeze for up to one month.) Dust with icing sugar before serving. For another healthy option, substitute 125 ml (1/2 cup) of wheat bran for the oats.

Goode Run an inspiration for all involved Emma Jackson

EMC news - â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs hard to put it into words, but there was something in the air.â&#x20AC;? This was the closest Goode Run organizer Heather Roe could get to describing the inspirational atmosphere at this yearĘźs race day in support of the Osgoode Youth Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were in tears,â&#x20AC;? Roe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a very inspirational year, and thatĘźs what going to help us grow.â&#x20AC;? The race day was held May 11 on the Osgoode multi-use pathway and more than 400 people participated in the 2K, 5K and 10K events. Roe attributed most of the positive atmosphere to members of Good Guys Tri, who ran as pacers and pumped up the crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The excitement they created with the kids was unreal,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They got the ďŹ nish line cheering and they got the kids so excited and that just went so far. They all just seemed to take so much more pride in what they were doing.â&#x20AC;? Eight-year-old Hayward Barrows was particularly proud of himself when he crossed the ďŹ nish line after his 2K race. The St. Leonard Catholic School student has autism and ran with his uncle Duane Leon on race day. He had been training with his class


On Saturday May 11, Mayor Jim Watson (right) and Osgoode Councillor Doug Thompson joined participants like eight year-old Hayward Barrows in the Osgoode Youth Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Goode Run. and could barely contain his excitement at the start line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was excited, he was bouncing up and down,â&#x20AC;? Leon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was going to be his ďŹ rst race and he wanted to win.â&#x20AC;? Leon, a Riverside South resident, said he could feel the positive vibes as they waited for the races to start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You certainly feel the energy in the crowd. There was excitement, es-

pecially with the kids,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could really feel that for them, that they were going to accomplish something.â&#x20AC;? And accomplish they did. During the run, Leon said Hayward only started slowing down in the last few hundred metres. Leon, being taller, could see the ďŹ nish line and had to encourage Hayward to keep going. But once Hayward caught sight of the cheering crowds, he found his own motivation to get to the end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as he saw the ďŹ nish line he took off like a bolt,â&#x20AC;? Leon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we got to the ďŹ nish line. I told him he won, because for what heĘźs gone through heĘźs always going to be a winner.â&#x20AC;? The fundraising event raised $12,000 for the youth centre. ThatĘźs a far cry from the $25,000 the event raised in the ďŹ rst few years, but Roe said the money is no longer the point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a lot of younger kids that were just pushing themselves, and they were feeling very proud of what they were doing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;TheyĘźre amazing kids, theyĘźre amazing runners and to me thatĘźs what itĘźs about: encouraging kids to do this.â&#x20AC;? Roe said sponsorship makes a big difference, and an expanded pledge program will also help next year.

Jepsen, Hadfield to headline Canada Day Steph Willems

EMC news - This yearʼs Canada Day show on Parliament Hill will bring together two Canadians who recently captured the worldʼs attention for very different reasons. Artists and guests scheduled for the countryʼs birthday celebration were announced on May 29 by Nation Capital Commission chairman Russell Mills and Canadian Heritage and Official Languages Minister James Moore. Performer Carly Rae Jepsen, who broke onto the musical scene last year with the infectious hit ʻCall Me Maybeʼ, is scheduled to perform at the noon show on July 1, while a special guest known for his recent antics in outer space will also appear. Astronaut Chris Hadfield, whose photo-heavy Twitter messages from the orbiting International Space Station captivated earthlings worldwide, is also scheduled to appear during that noon show. “As we move closer to the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017, Canada Day is another opportunity to show your pride and celebrate the many things that make Canada great,” said Moore.

The musical lineup will be preceded by traditional ceremony, including a Peace Tower carillon concert at 9 a.m. on July 1, the flag-raising ceremony at 9:30 a.m., and the Changing of the Guard at 10 a.m. The noon show will include a flyover by CF-18 fighter jets and the Snowbirds demonstration team. Afternoon programming on the Parliament Hill lawn will trace Canadaʼs cultural heritage through music. Both noon and evening shows feature the same headliners – in this case, Jepsen and popular indie band Metric, plus Terri Clark and Karim Ouellet. The noon show adds MarieMai and Jennifer Gillis, while the evening show, which starts at 7:30 p.m., adds DJ Abeille, Lucie Idlout, Radio Radio, and Sylvain Cossette. Numerous partners allow the show to be staged. “The NCC wished to acknowledge the valuable support of private partners, federal institutions, collaborators and our more than 500 volunteers for their involvement in making the Capital a meeting place that communicated Canada to Canadians,” said Mills. A full list of events, activities and times can be found at canadaday.

Deborah Rosenlund, daughter of Major William Ross Chamberlain, said she is thrilled to have a park named after her father.

Soccer field, plaza in park plan Continued from the front

The park has a loose nautical theme, captured in the boatshaped sandbox areas included with the play structures. Landscape architect Heather Martin, who helped design the park, said the team looked at ManotickĘźs natural features and considered Mahogany Bay an inspiration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought a nautical theme was appropriate and fun,â&#x20AC;? she told the small audience of mostly legion members on May 30. A set of four swings includes two belt swings, a tod-

dler swing and a full-support accessible swing. A mini soccer ďŹ eld will also be available for local soccer leagues and community use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city has identiďŹ ed a greater need for more sports ďŹ elds in the Manotick area,â&#x20AC;? Martin explained. A concrete plaza will include a shade feature with an accessible picnic table and several benches. Several â&#x20AC;&#x153;birch nooksâ&#x20AC;? will add some nature and adventure to the park for kids, and will tie in some of the more natural landscape across the road along the creek. A path

will cross through the park and connect to the creek and other phases of the Mahogany construction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ItĘźs a neighbourhood park, and the goal is to provide a gathering place for local residents,â&#x20AC;? Martin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea is for a lot of people to walk to the amenities there.â&#x20AC;? City planner Diane Emmerson said parking is not an option for a park like this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just uses up the green space that we prefer to keep green,â&#x20AC;? she said. Detailed park plans will be posted on the cityĘźs website in early June.

Findlay Creek gymnast flying high Michelle Nash

EMC sports - With one eye on future Olympic qualiďŹ cation, one young Ottawa gymnast continues to defy gravity and push his limits to reach the top of his potential. Samuel Zakuntey has been a gymnast since age four and began competing when he was 10. He said heĘźs been passionate about the sport since he started, saying itĘźs all about the moments he is ďŹ&#x201A;ying before landing an exercise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess I just like being in the air,â&#x20AC;? Samuel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels like you are soaring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels like you are doing the impossible, that you are de-

wouldnĘźt have the time to train,â&#x20AC;? Samuel said. The grueling schedule is made possible because the teen attends Ă&#x2030;cole secondaire catholique Franco-CitĂŠ, which Samuel said works around his training schedules, allowing him to leave early, or miss time because of competitions. The ďŹ ght to the top is not easy, however, and there are times when he feels left out at either school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donĘźt really have a social life,â&#x20AC;? Samuel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other kids will be talking about a television show that I donĘźt know about, and I feel left out. ItĘźs a pain to feel like that, but to know that I am doing what I love, it helps me feel like I am making the

fying gravity.â&#x20AC;? The 14-year-old ďŹ nished ďŹ rst in his age division on May 24 at the Canada Gymnastics Championships, held at Carleton University. Samuel credits his success to his determination to constantly improving his skills â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something that comes from training six days a week for around four hours a day. SamuelĘźs coach, Oleksandr Zavadych, said he sees potential in his student, who he picks up from school and drives to the gymnasium for practice. Samuel said the support he receives from his family, friends and coach has been integral to his training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without this support, I

right choice.â&#x20AC;? Other times, he said he becomes his worst enemy, as he is in constant competition with himself. SamuelĘźs ultimate goal is to qualify for the 2020 Olympics, and if all goes well, he would love to be considered an alternate at the 2016 Olympics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making it and representing my country would be amazing to me,â&#x20AC;? Samuel said. Battling back from an injury, Samuel said this year has been hard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Injuries are stressful,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the time you are taking risks, risks of really hurting yourself, but also, at the same MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND time, you are also making your- Samuel Zakuntey shows off some of his skills on the self stronger â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatĘźs the impor- pommel horse at the Canada Gymnastics tant part.â&#x20AC;?

City seeks new request for proposals for Ottawa Stadium Michelle Nash

EMC news - After sitting idle for months awaiting a potential minor league-level tenant, a new city report indicates the Ottawa Baseball Stadium could open up for community use this summer. Released on May 28, the report indicates the city needs to revisit the conversation surrounding leasing opportunities for the stadium, adding that the parks and recreation department will take over programming at the facility this summer and fall. The latest development in the ongoing saga comes as good news for the surrounding community, president of the Overbrook Community Association Sheila Perry said. “Itʼs been a shame that nothing is going on there,” Perry said. “This is good news, but we wonder if itʼs too late in the season for anything. It seems itʼs at the last hour.” According to Dan Chenier, general manager of the parks and recreation department, bookings are already under way and use will begin in the later part of June. There is no deadline regarding the bookings, but they are done on a first-come-firstserved basis, for casual use only. The report calls for the city

to allocate $50,000 in onetime funding to support this programming. The city has suggested such uses could include ultimate frisbee, cricket and baseball leagues. Opening up use of the facility to the community comes after a year of failed negotiations between the city and Beacon Sports Capital Partners to bring a AA baseball team to Ottawa. In February 2012, council approved a report that allocated $5.7 million to give the Coventry Road stadium a major upgrade, including the installation of artificial turf. On direction from city council, staff entered into negotiations with Beacon Sports to form a renovation plan and a lease agreement with an AA baseball franchise. According to the latest report, city staff and Beacon Sports met numerous times over a five month period following the initial approval. Three potential groups negotiated to lease the stadium, but all eventually backed off because of renovation costs, now estimated between $10 to $30 million. Now staff is calling for the parameters surrounding finding a new tenant to be broadened, stating the city needs to take a broader approach to turn the stadium into “a family-friendly entertainment

The facility has not been upgraded since it was built in the early 1990s, but some improvements and maintenance has started. According to Peter Radke, manager of the cityʼs realty initiatives and development department, since February 2013 the only work being completed is the final waterproofing of exposed concrete. Additional work being considered for 2013 relates to electrical, mechanical, and fire and life safety elements of

the stadium that must be completed, regardless of tenancy. The report indicates it would cost around $250,000 The last tenants, the Ottawa Fat Cats, leased the facility from April 2010 to September 2012 on a year-by-year lease. A former general manager of the club, Duncan MacDonald, said the organization paid $108,000 to rent the facility. During that time, the organization paid for all the maintenance and upgrades, which MacDonald said was around $250,000, which was also paid for by the club. “We paid all the bills,” MacDonald said. “We paid rent in full and in advance and

then began fixing up the facility.” The first thing the organization did, MacDonald said was spend $30,000 just to have the plumbing fixed. The fact that a once stateof-the-art facility is falling apart has Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark upset. “I was a part of that stadium getting built,” Clark said. “We were proud of that stadium; letting it lapse and fall into disrepair, was an error.” Overbrook resident Peter MacFarlane is a long time Ottawa Stadium fan and a ticket holder since the doors opened in 1993. He said he is saddened to see the stadium in its current state. “As a teacher, I took my students through one of the first tours of the stadium,” MacFarlane said. “Looking at it now -itʼs totally frustrating, itʼs not that it isnʼt useable, itʼs perfectly useable.” MacFarlane said he partly blames the city on how it handled the stadium, noting that he does not understand why the city sold a portion of the stadiumʼs parking lot. He also questioned the cityʼs treatment of the stadiumʼs former tenants. “The Fat Cats put their necks on the line; I donʼt believe the city treated them well, certainly not when it came to them wanting to bring

in other events,” he said. “The Fat Cats wanted to bring in community events and now the city is saying thatʼs what they want to do? I donʼt understand.” Perry said the community association had a great relationship with the former tenants, including working together on community events. “The Fat Cats did their very best, we were partners, and that is what you want. And again if the city doesnʼt want that, then we really are stuck,” she said.

were long back-ups at certain points in the clinic process. As a result, we have removed more than 20 appointments from the clinic schedule in order to ease these back ups and allow for faster processing times. We recognize that our donors are volunteering their time to give blood and I want to assure them of our commitment to continuously monitor this clinic until we have brought it in line with our national standard, which is that it should take approximately one hour to give blood. I would like to thank our donors for their continued support as we continue to work on improving the wait times at this clinic. Your dedication has allowed us to collect 112 units of blood in Manotick this year – enough to help 22 cancer patients. We are still seeking donors for our clinic on Thursday, June 13th at the Jack May Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership located at 3788 Prince of Wales Drive from 2:00 -7:00 pm.

Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; safety presentation outlines precautions Jessica Cunha

EMC news - John Cher, president of the Kanata legion branch, almost fell victim to a mail scam. He received a cheque in the mail, asking him to be a secret shopper at a well-known bank. Cher walked into the bank and asked to deposit the cheque. The teller called out the manager, who informed Cher the cheque was no good. It was part of a fraud scam. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;mystery shopperâ&#x20AC;? fraud, reported by the KourierStandard last December, targets people by sending them a letter containing a cheque. The letter asks the recipient to cash the cheque and transfer a portion of it to another account number provided by the company. However, the cheque is invalid and if cashed, the recipient is held responsible for the outstanding funds. Cher was lucky the bank manager recognized the invalid cheque. Although it was never cashed, the fraudsters sent him more letters and called his house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The following day I get a letter by this organization saying they overpaid me by $2,000,â&#x20AC;? said Cher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mother said I was born at night, but I wasnĘźt born last night.â&#x20AC;? He reported the fraud to the police. Cher invited community police ofďŹ cer Const. Lori Fahey to host a presentation on seniorsĘź safety at the legion on May 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because a scam almost happened to me I was more interested in having this thing done,â&#x20AC;? said Cher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was a good idea for our seniors in our area to have the same information.â&#x20AC;? SENIORSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; SAFETY

Around 40 people attended the presentation, which

touched on safety in the home, in the car and online. When it comes to door-todoor solicitors, residents donĘźt have to answer their door, said Fahey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a stranger shows up at my door â&#x20AC;Ś I say no thank you. I just shut the door,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a hard time doing that, just donĘźt answer your door â&#x20AC;Ś you can choose not to.â&#x20AC;? Some door-to-door scams reported to police include: â&#x20AC;˘ People saying they are a water company with the city and need to inspect a homeĘźs water â&#x20AC;˘ Hot water tank salespeople â&#x20AC;˘ Alarm company solicitors â&#x20AC;˘ People who pretend to be lost, from a charity or lottery, repair person or utility inspector. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Know your rights when someone comes knocking at the door,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ThereĘźs a lot of door-to-door solicitation in Kanata and Stittsville.â&#x20AC;? Homeowners are well within their rights to ask someone to leave their property, she added. If the offending party doesnĘźt leave, call the police. The community police centre in Kanata and Stittsville offers a free home inspection to ensure a house is as safe as possible. Trained volunteers will check the security of a home, such as visibility from the front of the house, said Fahey. The police centre will also help communities implement a Neighbourhood Watch, which can help deter crime. FRAUD

ItĘźs important not to carry too much identiďŹ cation in a wallet, said Fahey. If lost or stolen, it can be easy for criminals to steal a personĘźs identity. OHIP and Social Insurance Number cards, birth certiďŹ cates are all items you donĘźt

need every day, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carry the least possible identiďŹ cation and never give out your personal information unless you know who you are giving it to and why.â&#x20AC;? Dumpster diving occurs when people rummage through garbage at the curb to retrieve personal information, said Fahey. Shred documents before throwing them in the garbage or recycling bin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monitor bank accounts and ďŹ nancial documents carefully,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Check your credit report.â&#x20AC;? Thieves will look for a personĘźs full name, date of birth, address, motherĘźs maiden name, drivers licence number, bank account numbers and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Protect your information as much as possible,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey. People who feel their information has been compromised should contact their bank and/ or credit card companies. Two national credit bureaus, Equifax and TransUnion, can place a fraud alert on your account. Online, be aware of email phishing scams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watch for spelling, grammatical errors, request for passwords,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never click on a link or attachment from someone you donĘźt know.â&#x20AC;? Banks will not send emails, said Fahey. The Competition Bureau has a Little Black Book of Scams, which â&#x20AC;&#x153;has every type of scam weĘźve ever seen,â&#x20AC;? said Fahey. The 30-page document can be found online at â&#x20AC;&#x153;Educate yourself to the fact there are unscrupulous people out there,â&#x20AC;? said Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The greatest protection of all is to be careful, be aware and look out for yourself and your neighbours.â&#x20AC;?


The Kanata Legion hosted a presentation on seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; safety on May 22 which outlined ways people can protect themselves and their identity in the real world and online.

Clothesline Project airs issue of violence against women VERY PREVALENT

Jessica Cunha

EMC news - The T-shirts decorating the side of the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre along Castlefrank Road are a symbolic gesture. Written on the clothes are messages from survivors of violence and abuse. On an infantʼs white onesie are the words “Love shouldnʼt hurt.” A bright purple shirt reads “Hands are for holding, not for hitting.” Written in coloured letters on a white background is this message of hope: “I know who I am and I am fabulous! You canʼt put out my fire.” The Clothesline Project is an annual international event aimed at raising awareness about violence against women and children. The T-shirts provide thought-provoking and emotional messages. “It started (with) the idea of airing out your laundry, airing out your concerns,” said peer support program co-ordinator Jenn Wilks. “Their message is about strength and hope.” Boxes upon boxes of T-shirts have been collected by the resource centre over the years, with a collection now totalling more than 500 articles of clothing.

Volunteers with the resource centre pinned the T-shirts to clotheslines hung around the buildingʼs property on May 29 for the one-day display.

“Itʼs about raising awareness,” said Wilks.

Annual General Meeting

which resulted in more traffic being dispersed to the downtown bridges and found there would still be a lot of trucks in the downtown core, because thatʼs where their destinations are located. Rockcliffe resident Peter Wilson said those numbers argue the point residents in all the corridors have been saying – any bridge will not alleviate the truck traffic in the downtown core. POOR ATTENDANCE

The open house in Orléans saw poor attendance compared to a similar open house last year, when there were still three corridors in the running. That event showed off the three preferred routes and more than 1,200 people attended. A rally was held at the event with all the community associations banding together to tell officials a bridge in any of the locations was not the answer. Wilson became a one-man protest outside of the Shenkman centre, but as more people attended the open house, they stopped to talk to him. Wilson said this is not just a fight for residents of Kettle Island. “Whereever the bridge goes, the damage is going to be horrendous,” he said. “I sympathize with Lowertown. I do. I think everyone does. Iʼm not fighting against them at all; Iʼm trying to let them know that itʼs not going to solve the problem. I think most of us are fighting for the people of Lowertown.” Some of corridor 5 residents said they have resented recent media reports, emails and calls about how itʼs a choice between a rich neighbourhood and Lowertown. Wilson said that is not the case at all. “They are just spreading the problem,” he said. “To me it would be like if you had a hole in your living room and a roofer came over and said, ʻOK we can reduce your problem by 30 per cent,ʼ and they put a hole in your dining room.” Wilson added he will keep fighting because he doesnʼt feel the outcome is right. “Itʼs not over until itʼs over,” he said. Recent reports released by Roche-Genivar revealed a bridge would cost taxpayers $1.6 billion. Funding is not in place. Whether a bridge will be built still remains up in the air according to the NCC, which has only committed to work with the provinces on the environment assessment.

No more bullies Majic 100 radio morning show hosts “Stuntman” Stu Schwartz, left, accepts the Mayor’s City Builder Award along with co-hosts Angie Poirier and Trisha Owens. The award was presented at city hall on May 22 to honour the morning show’s work advocating against bullying. Having experienced bullying himself, Schwartz and his co-hosts decided to take action after hearing many stories about the impacts of bullying. They created the Twitter topic #NoMoreBullies and spend most Tuesday mornings reaching out to students at local schools.

pening at Terry Fox. There is also a video game development club that Yilmaz runs, and a strong video production element mixed into several courses. Students produce videos on different math lessons, for example, which are posted online. They can then scan the barcode on different study units using a smartphone at home to call up the video and review the lesson. Theyʼve developed a partnership with Algonquin Collegeʼs animation program, and intermediate students even produce the Terry Fox News. The schoolʼs received grants – with students writing proposals – and projects funded by the parent council. With $5,000 in their pockets, Yilmaz hopes nex t year that students can take on a potential project, still under wraps, that would be a first for a Canadian elementary school. “We use technology to help students take ownership,” Yilmaz said. “Theyʼre powerful tools that can be used to make a difference.”

Train like a pro with the pros this summer in 3 great weeks of Camp


EMC news - Technology is slowly creeping into many elementary schools, but at Terry Fox Elementary School in Orléans, itʼs sprinting. The school was recently recognized with a technological innovation award at the annual Ottawa Education Gala for integrating technology and involving students. Recently, students returned from the Skills Ontario competition in Waterloo for Grade 7 and 8 students, where they competed in robotics and video production. The students placed second in the robotics competition, nailing perfect scores on two of the three challenges, and the video production pair finished in fourth. It was a bit of a “David and Goliath effort” said teacher Mehmet Yilmaz, who said the students were competing against several private schools which had purchased more expensive robotics kits to built their robots. Terry Fox was accepted be-

cause there were several open spots for teacher nominations, which Yilmaz made. Next year, once school activities are back in full swing, the students will have to win at the board level to be able to move onto the provincial competition. The students had a small time window to get everything ready, bringing in Lego pieces and parts from home to combine with school resources to build their robots. “We spent every recess and lunch working on it,” said Grade 7 student Kurt Lemay, a member of the robotics team. “We even spent a Saturday here.” The students had to craft robots that could take on three different challenges, each with 15 minutes to complete. They stumbled only on a challenge when the item to pick up was too heavy – so they pushed it along the track and guided their robot on the necessary path to win points. In the end, they finished only one point behind the firstplace robotics team. The schoolʼs robotics team isnʼt the only high-tech hap-

Putting Families First Parents are fully aware of the expenses that come with raising a family. From basic necessities such as clothing and food, to education and recreational activities – it adds up fast. That is why our Government has consistently worked to support and deliver savings for Canadian families since we were first elected in 2006. We started by introducing the Universal Child Care Benefit, providing real choice in child care by giving parents $1,200 a year for each child under the age of six. We have kept taxes low, including cutting the lowest personal income tax rate to 15%, as well as cutting the GST from 7% to 5%. We have also delivered tax credits that are helping families save every year, such as the Family Caregiver Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit and the Children’s Arts Tax Credit. The average family now saves $3,200 a year. Despite these savings, Canadians remain mindful of the fact that the price of many products they need to support their family are consistently priced higher in Canada compared to the exact same product sold in the United States. Our Government understands this concern, and we have taken action through our latest Budget, Economic Action Plan 2013, to help deliver lower prices for hard-working Canadian families. Hockey skates, skis and baby clothing are just a few of the goods that will now be a little more affordable. To do this, our Government has removed tariffs on imported baby clothing and sports equipment, resulting in significant savings for families. Other examples of products that are now tariff-free include: snowboards, golf clubs, snowshoes, toboggans and roller skates. We strongly encourage businesses to pass these savings – in full – to their customers. These results build on our Government’s strong record of providing real savings to Canadian families. In fact, since 2009, we have eliminated close to 1,900 tariffs, providing more than $525 million in tariff relief annually to Canadian businesses and consumers. Ultimately, Canadians are aware that our dollar has strengthened considerably compared to the U.S. dollar. It makes sense, therefore, that a strong dollar should be reflected in the prices Canadians pay when they purchase products for their families with their hard-earned money.

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013



Romanc Fireplaces and BBQs Inc. When Michael Pilon is behind the barbecue, expect to be treated to a symphony of flavour. Owner of Romantic Fireplaces and BBQ’s Inc., Michael is passionate about quality. That’s why he is so excited to be showcasing the Black Olive pellet grill, the world’s first pellet Kamado grill at local Farm Boy stores. “It’s all about combining the highest quality food with best taste and flavour. There is no product like the Black Olive and no better way to showcase it than with Farm Boy foods.” “We all remember the day when we made ‘the perfect steak’ cooked on a Hibachi charcoal grill. Convenience has most of us using a gas grill which tends to leave food tasteless and a bit dried out.” That’s where the Black Olive makes all the difference. “Finally, using the latest technology, the world’s first electric wood pellet Kamado style grill has been produced in Canada. The Black Olive grill has made it easy to have that great taste and flavour with the

push of a button!” For centuries in Japan, the Kamado style cooker has been the source of great meals. “This style of cooking reduces shrinkage and retains the moisture in foods, producing succulent, juicy steak, poultry and meats infused with the flavour of perfect wood pellet blends – maple, apple, cherry and hickory.” Not only does the Black Olive give food the best taste, cooking with the revolutionary grill is easy too. “The Black Olive does it all – smoking, baking, roasting, grilling and searing. Imagine enjoying your favourite wheel of brie, giant Portobello mushrooms or even pizza grilled to perfection with the amazing taste of wood pellets. It’s the best grilling experience ever!” Beautifully designed, easy to control, delicious results, and built to last – the Black Olive is durable and tough, able to withstand the most extreme climates and retain its good looks. No need to replace rusted out burners, the Black Olive ceramic grill will endure the harshest of cooking environments.


  Enter in store for a chance to win a grill-tastic BBQ bash for 20 of your closest friends and family. Prizes include the Black Olive BBQ, plus all the fixings – fresh food, professional grillers and craft beer for 20. ƒ Black Olive Grill with accessories ƒ Farm Boy™ fresh food for 20 people ƒ Grilling services from Pistol Packin’ Piggies ƒ Craft beer from Muskoka Brewery

The Black Olive’s patented design and shape gives it the ability to quickly achieve temperatures in excess of 650°F or as low as 150°F, making it perfect for smoking, baking, roasting, grilling and so much more. Never need to worry about overcooking or scorching your food again. Economical and healthier for the environment, pellet fuel gives food a more natural taste than gas or even charcoal. The pellet cooker takes the mystery out of fuel levels by providing a visual indication of how much fuel is in the grill at all times. Easily filled from the side hopper, the Black Olive is ideal for extended smokes and slow roasts.


By David Johnston All for the love of great food, expertly prepared

Stop by Farm Boy™ Train Yards this Sunday, June 9th from 11am – 1pm to sample the smoky goodness of our fresh-made kebabs on the Black Olive BBQ’s.
