News - Closing underused city service centres would save a lot of money but councillors said that option is unacceptable. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry said centres that provide city services are an important issue for councillors – especially those who represent rural areas. “They are also places where city staff can work remotely,� he added. The city needs to consider the intangible benefits of providing easy access to the centres because it encourages people to follow the rules and obtain necessary permits for things like fires, El-Chantiry said. The city employs the equivalent of 40 full-time employees to staff the centres with a budget of $3.2 million. Axing 13 of those employees and closing the centres they work at could save the city $824,000 a year, auditor

general Alain Lalonde’s 2012 report found. “This is because the resources are not being fully utilized,� said Ray Kostuch, the deputy auditor general. But city manager Kent Kirkpatrick said city management has no intent of closing centres at this point. The rural centres – especially Kinburn – would be first on the chopping block. They already operate on limited hours – usually only once a week. It’s fairly common for rural residents to use service centres in the urban area, where they work, Kostuch said. Donna Gray, manager of Service Ottawa, reiterated that she is not looking at closing rural service centres. The centres provide essential tax and other city services “for our residents who don’t have internet access and people who don’t have access in other ways,� she said. Rather, Kirkpatrick said the city will look at how the staff time and service capacity at the centres could be better used. The city will also be looking at ensuring the service centres are located where they provide the most convenience and have the best chance of being used by residents. Twenty-three per cent of transactions performed at the centres are payments of water and tax bills. That process could be automated instead of requiring staff to process the payments, Kostuch said. The city is in the process of putting more services online as part of the Service Ottawa initiative.

Miniskirts, Mini Coopers kept Manotick Motors hopping Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – Saturday mornings in downtown Manotick were a non-stop parade of Europe’s most popular sports cars at the height of the 1960s. A constant stream of the hippest cats around would pour over old Bridge Street in their Minis, MGs, AustinHealeys, Rovers, Lotuses and, later, Jaguars and Fiats. They were heading, of course, to Manotick Motors – one of the only places in the Ottawa area that could service

British and European sports cars for the many veterans, immigrants and racing enthusiasts who owned the popular vehicles in Canada. Characters of every extreme came through the door to get a tune-up, check out the latest floor models or buy any number of race car accessories lining the shop walls. Tiny men arrived in enormous vehicles, and hulking tough guys crammed themselves into their favourite compacts. Fighter pilots from the Uplands base would book it

down to Manotick to show off their ride. Everyone wanted the latest gadget or gizmo to outfit their pride and joy – no matter how ridiculous they looked. “We got some characters; the types of cars we serviced bred them,� laughed Larry Renton, who ran the garage and dealership with his wife Audrey Renton for 13 years. Men and women would be decked out in the hottest gear, even if they were, in 1960s terms, ‘all show and no go.’ See MANOTICK page 12

Wine, food pairing to light up women’s lives Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Community – An inaugural wine and food event in Manotick aims to support vulnerable women in the Ottawa area. The Women’s Integration Network will host its Let There Be Light event at the Main Street Cellar downtown Manotick on Sunday, Dec. 15. The afternoon event beginning at 1 p.m. will offer owner Kim Burns’ culinary creations paired with wine from the women-run Grange of Prince Edward winery. “It will be a chance for everyone to hang out and have a party, that’s the atmosphere

we’re going for,� said Tara Dentry, one of the organizers and a founding member of WIN. The organization is still in its infancy; it was founded last year as a support network for women who have experienced hardship, either through poverty, domestic abuse, addictions issues or other challenges. “We’re in the funding and program development stage,� Dentry said. “We have a vision and we know what we want to do.� The organization plans to match its clients with community volunteers who will act as mentors and a support system for the woman and her family. The volunteers would help their mentees navigate city’s

social services and provide some fellowship and friendship. “The organization itself grew out of a group of women who committed to support each other in that way,� Dentry said. The organization is working with experts in the fields of social work, therapy, research and project management to help develop and implement the programs, the website said, and Dentry said the group hopes to have a permanent location soon. Tickets for the wine pairing event are $65 each and can be purchased at www.winwomen. ca. The Main Street Cellar is located at 5561 Manotick Main St.

Young actors Kendra Brown, left, Veronika Estrada, Emily Pearson, Noah Hill and Madison Adams rehearse for the Just Kiddinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Theatre production of Everlasting Gifts, which begins Dec. 13.

Youth theatre celebrates everlasting gifts of Christmas Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A wise Grinch once taught us that Christmas doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come from a store â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that the season of giving means a little bit more. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly the message Metcalfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Just Kiddinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Theatre hopes to send with its production of Everlasting Gifts this month. Beginning with a 7 p.m. show on Friday, Dec. 13, the youth theatre will present three performances of the family Christmas play at the old Metcalfe Town Hall, 8243 Victoria St. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone who likes the classic Charlie Brown Christmas special will warm their hearts watching this play,â&#x20AC;? said director Stephanie Parry. Theatre founder Andrie Nel wrote the play around 2007 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; her first full-length script â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the youth of the day performed it in Metcalfe that year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of neat because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being done with a new group and new director,â&#x20AC;? Nel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of fun to watch.â&#x20AC;? This time around, the play

has been pared down to a simpler storyline, but it still maintains a heart-warming seasonal message. It follows members of a rural town, who are all dealing with their own issues as the stressful season reaches a fever pitch. But when one familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home burns down, the residents comes together to â&#x20AC;&#x153;ponder the true gifts of the holiday season,â&#x20AC;? Nel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the story of the community rallying together to not only save that familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas but also to deal with all the issues they had in their own storylines,â&#x20AC;? she said. Of course, a Just Kiddinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; play wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the real deal without a bit of humour, and Nel promised a few funny scenes around some wellmeaning regiftings. The young actors will present shows at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14 as well as a 1 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Dec. 15. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at justkiddintheatre.com. WINTER SESSION

Registration is now open for

the next session, which begins in January. Two groups â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one for kids aged nine to 13 and another for teenagers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will produce Father Figure, another repeat production from earlier JKT days. The two-act play deals with neighbouring families and pokes a bit of fun at fathers. The first act introduces Albert Williams, a character who shows up in other JKT productions as well. The light-hearted first act reveals a unique view of his world that possibly too many fathers can identify with, according to the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. But behind the humor lies a surprising message in the second act. Although the audience never actually meets the actâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s central father, Hubert, his son discovers that his father is illiterate and the family must deal with the fall-out. The younger group meets Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., beginning January 8. The teen group will meet Thursdays beginning January 9.The groups will perform the show May 2 to 4.

Greely snowsuit drive aims to help Northern Canadians Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Metcalfe family is hoping to warm hearts as well as hands this winter. The second annual Nunavut Snowsuit Fund is being organized by Patti-Anne Scrivens and her 22-year-old son Christopher to collect new and gently used winter clothing for needy residents in Nunavut. While working as a pilot in the north several years ago, Christopher discovered that many residents in Northern Canada donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have adequate winter clothing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; despite average January temperatures dropping to about -35 C. His mother helped him set up the snowsuit drive last year with the help of Greely Foodland, and they sent more than 1,000 pieces of winter clothing to northern

towns courtesy of Canadian North Airlines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not too many 22-year-olds think about giving back and making an effort to help fellow Canadians the way Christopher is,â&#x20AC;? Scrivens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so proud of him.â&#x20AC;? Scrivens said goods are so expensive in Nunavut that families are often forced to choose between buying food or winter boots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something this campaign aims to change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of spending their money on a snowsuit they can spend it on food,â&#x20AC;? she said. Scrivens is asking for donations of new or gently used snow pants and jackets, winter boots, hats and mitts for all ages. She asked residents to take a close look at their clothing before they donate it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year some people gave jackets without zippers,â&#x20AC;? she said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ship that up. It should be used but clean. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s child wearing that.â&#x20AC;? Canadian North Airlines has once again agreed to ship the items to Nunavut over the Christmas holidays, where they will be distributed to a number of smaller villages across the territory. Greely Foodland offered donation bins over the Dec. 7 weekend, but Larga Baffin Inuit services agency in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west end will collect them throughout the month, Scrivens said. Scrivens said she is also working with schools and churches in Greely and Metcalfe to secure more local drop-off locations. She encouraged parents to look through their cupboards and discard anything their kids are no longer wearing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all Canadians; we have to help our fellow Canadians.â&#x20AC;?

New best friend for Canadian speed skater emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – They’ve been together less than a month, and already they’ve become the

best of friends. Orleans resident Kevin Frost brought his new guide dog, Lewis, home on Nov. 29 after three weeks of intense training at the Canadian Guide

Dogs for the Blind headquarters in Manotick. Frost is visually and hearing impaired. Until last December, he had a black lab guide dog named Nemo for

nine years, until she had to be put down. Frost waited a full year before he could be paired with a new dog, but he said the wait was worth it. “I was one of the lucky ones with Lewis,” Frost said. “He’s a pretty special dog.” The 20-month old yellow Labrador retriever was settling into his new home, never going much farther from his partner than his dog bed across the living room. Occasionally the 72-pound dog would come and rest his large head on Frost’s lap. They’ve only been home for a few weeks, and already Lewis has saved Frost’s life – on their very first walk out of his townhouse complex near Jean D’Arc Boulevard. Frost and Lewis came to the curb, and Frost gave the command to go – which Lewis didn’t obey. Frost wondered why, until he heard the distracted driver speed past. “When you give a forward command and they don’t go, you trust them,” Frost said. Frost had to return to using a cane while he waited to be matched with a new guide dog, and he said he immediately felt the difference. “I realized how much safer a guide dog is,” Frost said. A cane can’t tell you about lowhanging branches, speeding drivers or other unpredictable events, he said. Once, his dog Nemo even saved him from falling into an open manhole that had been left uncovered – something his cane might have missed. “Guide dogs aren’t perfect, but they’re pretty close,” he said.

and short track events throughout his 10-year career. He plans to compete at a world event in Russia in April – his event isn’t sanctioned for the Paralympics in February – and he is in the process of transitioning to cycling. He has been doing fitness tests with Para Team Canada and hopes to compete in the Canadian Para Championships 2014 in the spring. Frost said that speed skating is still his passion, but his focus is shifting to getting more young people involved in the sport. Of course, he also continues to advocate for the sport to be sanctioned at the Paralympics. Currently not enough countries have national speed skating programs that would allow the sport to qualify. “I’ve accomplished what I wanted to, but getting the sport sanctioned would be a medal,” he said. Frost also wants to develop his foundation, the Impaired Speed Skating Association of Canada, which aims to help young impaired athletes get involved in speed skating. Part of that plan includes an improved outdoor oval at Brewer

Park – either through refrigeration or a newly-built indoor facility. “We have so many heroes from Ottawa,” he said. While it may be an uphill battle to secure money for such a project, Frost said he doesn’t mind a challenge. “I’ve conquered a lot of things in my life,” he said. “If there’s a mountain in the way you just find another way around it.”

No shocking new developments

I

ntensification is still the buzz word for development in Ottawa, so we should all get used to it. The city recently approved a swath of plans that will guide the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth and development over the next two decades. Council gave the thumbs up to five master plans, including the Official Plan, the infrastructure master plan and the transportation master plan. The city said it will encourage intensification, not exactly a new concept, but one that usually sparks heated debate when development applications are discussed at community associations and at planning committee. Yet for some reason, it sometimes comes as a shock to residents when a developer takes the city at its word and proposes to build a high-rise or mid-rise in an established community. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not willy-nilly development.The official plan encourages intensification in specific areas of the city, namely rural areas, villages, mixed-use centres and public transit stations. The plan requires development to fit the character of the community. Keep in mind, a developer can always apply to build a large building in an area the city may not prefer. All it requires is a little rezoning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and if the city objects, it risks fighting an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board, and Ottawa hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly racked

up a stellar record fighting those appeals, especially when the development requests are supported by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own staff. We can only hope this type of unwanted development requests are few and far between, as the official plan offers preferred areas of the city for intensification. Residents should check out the planned extensions to the Transitway, as well as the future routes of the light-rail transit system, which will be built over the coming decades. Those plans will give a good indication what areas developers are targeting for intensification. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Official Plan aims to promote smart growth, for instance, by discouraging urban sprawl, a costly phenomenon for taxpayers, as it requires providing roads, water pipes, storm water management and other services to previously undeveloped areas. Smart growth means encouraging public transit and reducing the number of motorists clogging our roads. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master plans for growth offer solace for residents by giving them the relative certainty of where development can occur, and what type of development, with rules governing the heights and designs of buildings. To avoid unwelcome shocks, residents may want to check out the plans, specifically in areas near where they live.

Who can save downtown? Maybe nobody

L

ast time we looked, the cinemas at the World Exchange Plaza were doomed. No one was happy about that, apparently not even the people who were doing the dooming. But, as the current motto of the hopeless goes, it is what it is. The movie theatres at World Exchange are nice and, more important, nicely located. They have developed a bit of a niche following by blending in artier fare with the usual mainstream stuff. But one movie company decided to vacate the premises when its lease expires, and while another movie company has taken over the lease, there are no guarantees that it will continue to show movies in 2014. Meanwhile, the owners of the building are thinking about converting the theatres to office space. Yes, office space with sloping floors. But it is what it is. Ottawa city council has expressed concern, with various councillors asking city staff to explore all options, and noting rather pointedly that the city has been helpful to the World Exchange people in the past. It sure would be nice if someone with a sense of social responsibility and civic pride â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps even the current owners

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town â&#x20AC;&#x201D; could step up and make sure that Ottawa continues to have a mainstream movie theatre downtown. It takes all the fingers of one hand to list the downtown theatres that have disappeared in the last two decades â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Capital Square, Place de Ville, Elgin, Nelson, Somerset, and there others that go further back. That canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have helped our downtown life. True, the suburbanization of just about everything has been a feature of our existence for some time. A lot of shopping is now done away from the core; entertainment complexes, not to mention sports facilities, have moved a distance away. People are getting used to heading away from the centre. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it ideal. It means a lot of driving, a lot of traffic, a lot of oil consumption, a lot of greenhouse gases. And is it

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, December 12, 2013

not also true that one of the aims of our city government has been to encourage population growth in the centre, getting people to move downtown in a bid to make the city more liveable, less dependent on the automobile? It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help this goal if the people who move downtown then have to get into their cars and drive for half an hour if they want to see a movie. (That is, a mainstream movie, because the Bytowne, on Rideau Street, does a good job of serving those whose taste in films leans to the less commercial.) And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much in the way of consolation that a cinema is maybe going to open at the new Lansdowne development. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than walking distance for many downtown people. So they will drive their cars to Lansdowne, giving the Glebe just what it needs: more cars. The situation is so dire that people have even begun to use what I call the G8 argument, to wit: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a disgrace that in the capital of a G8 nation you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even find a movie theatre in the downtown!â&#x20AC;? And you know, that is a persuasive argument. But what can anybody do about it? Business will do what business will do, like it or not. City council can plead, citizens can mutter. But no one can force a cinema to stay

open. It is what it is. This is probably the kind of thing Justin Trudeau was getting at when he made his much ridiculed comments about his â&#x20AC;&#x153;level of admirationâ&#x20AC;? for the Chinese government and that fact that a dictatorship can do things in a hurry. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something in that. If we had the Chinese government here and the Chinese government wanted there to be a movie theatre in downtown Ottawa, there would be one and we could all enjoy attending it. Of course, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also have the Chinese government.

Grocers feed soul of the community Retirement party to celebrate Foodlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blair and Kit MacKinnon Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Got Events?

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Very few of Greelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraisers, community events or tournaments go by without a visit from Blair and Kit MacKinnon, owners of the Foodland grocery store on Meadow Drive. The couple rarely miss an opportunity to sponsor a team, contribute to a silent auction or lend an organizational hand to a fundraiser in town. And now that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re retiring, the pair doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intend to slow that down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still want to participate in things happening in Greely,â&#x20AC;? Kit said, noting theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be moving to Manotick in the new year. Blair said he will encourage his son Scott, who is taking over the store, to continue the community service his father maintained for so long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the community and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the store,â&#x20AC;? Blair said. On Sunday, Dec. 15 the community can gather at the Our Lady of the Visitation banquet hall on Bank Street to celebrate the couple as they move on to a new stage of their life. Kit said she and Blair both had tears in their eyes when Patti-Anne Scrivens told them she was planning the retirement party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just happy that people can show Blair they do care,â&#x20AC;? said Kit through her tears. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around a long time. Everyone things heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big, gruff guy but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a heart of gold.â&#x20AC;? From 2 to 5 p.m. residents, customers and past employees are all invited to enjoy some refreshments and thank the pair for their support. Scrivens said she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass up an opportunity to show the MacKinnons how they are appreciated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blair and Kit have given to so many organizations over the years and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reason we want them recognized, to say thank you and farewell,â&#x20AC;? she said. Over the years, the couple has supported events for the Osgoode Fish and Game Club, the Winchester District Memorial Hospital, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, the Dominion Outreach Centre, Shroomfest, the Osgoode food cupboard, and the Alzheimers Society, among many others.

Cheryl Ozen, left, is one of many residents to experience the generosity of Blair and Kit MacKinnon, Greely Foodland owners. Here, they join Ozen to host a golf tournament in support of Ovarian Cancer Canada this summer. The couple will retire in 2014 but want to continue their community service. All year they sponsor various golf tournaments, nights at the races and other community events. Last summer they hosted their own golf tournament in support of the Ovarian Cancer Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very, very kind people,â&#x20AC;? Scrivens said. LONG HISTORY

Blair began selling groceries on the Meadow Drive property in January, 1984 and ran Larryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Groceries and Meats on the spot until the mid-2000s. In 2008 Blair built the current building and opened the Foodland. In the meantime, Kit and Blair had started

dating and married a year after the Foodland opened. Blair said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready for a new challenge, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the business he ran for more than 30 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to go and work for Kit now,â&#x20AC;? he joked. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the people most of all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meeting the customers and talking to them.â&#x20AC;? Kit will maintain her spot on the board of the Greely Business Association, and she plans to develop her Northern Shopper business which offers an online grocery and commodity shopping option for northern communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to put 100 per cent into my business, and Blairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to help me,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Manotick Motors building a part of village history Continued from page 1

The original Manotick Motors building at 5521Manotick Main St. at the corner of Clapp Lane was demolished in late November – much to the surprise of the Rentons, who are now in their 90s. “A friend said, ‘your building’s gone,’” said Larry Renton. “That’s the end of that history there. One by one these old buildings will disappear.” The one-storey garage was likely built in the early 1930s by Percy Powell, and changed hands several times before the Rentons bought it in April, 1959. They had both spent several years in the air force in the United Kingdom during and after the Second World War, and Larry had an engineering background. “If man put it together, I can fix it,” he said. By 1960 the couple had removed the property’s gas pumps, and over time they added a second storey and expanded the building’s firstfloor footprint. At first, Manotick Motors operated solely as a service garage for imported sports cars. But it didn’t take long before the couple was selling cars – almost any British Motor Company car you could think of. They even imported Ottawa’s first Mini vehicle, a Morris. But they needed more

space. “Once we started selling cars we needed more than a one-car showroom,” Renton said. In 1961, he began drawing up plans for a large service station across the street. The Mapleside townhouses now on that Ann Street property rest on top of the original service bay floors, he said. ONE OF A KIND

Manotick Motors was not your typical small-town garage; as one of the only sports car dealerships and garages in the region, it drew customers from miles around, including drivers from New York State, Montreal and Toronto. One of its biggest draws was the vast array of driving accessories Audrey bought on her frequent scouting trips to London. She would jet-set to her home country for a weekend at a time, returning with the hottest gadgets for 1960s race car enthusiasts. Having threads to match your fancy car was half the point of owning one, so Audrey stocked fashionable chequered shades, leather gloves, driving shoes and head scarves in the store alongside accessories like race-themed ashtrays, leather seats and even the Ottawa area’s first set of installable seat belts. “We were unique,” Audrey said. “They couldn’t get anything else like it in Canada.”

Even former Ottawa mayor Charlotte Whitton stopped by to buy a pair of driving boots. “You had to have the right bag, that was very important,” Audrey said. “It was the day of the Mini.” In 1965 the Rentons began to publish The Winner, a monthly publication for their customers outlining the latest deals inside their store as well as sharing driving tips, technical information and news from the industry. Larry helped found the Motorsport Club of Ottawa, and the couple sponsored a number of race cars in local events, including the now-defunct ice racing competitions on Dows Lake. They opened a Long Island Motors dealership in the Westboro area on Richmond Road, and also a service station at Kent Street and Gladstone Ave downtown so that urban customers didn’t have to come all the way to Manotick for a tune-up. But the Manotick location was always the home base for the couple, who sold the business in 1972. Although the Kars residents said they were sad to see their beloved dealership demolished, they plan on donating their many pages of records, newsletters and photos to the Rideau Township Archives in North Gower for safe keeping – and a lasting record of one of the most exciting decades in Manotick’s history.

Two million pennies Jennifer Glanz, her dog guide Solstice and Glanz’ father William Dixon present a cheque for $20,000 to Sandy Turney, executive director of the Lions Foundation of Canada during the Perth Lions charter night on Saturday, Nov. 9. Glanz suffers from multiple sclerosis, and received a dog guide from the foundation last year to help her with mobility. Dixon, a long-time Lion member, started a penny drive around the same time to raise $20,000 to replace the cost of his daughter’s dog and help someone else in need. This fall he reached that goal with the help of Lions clubs across the region, including the Metcalfe Lions.

e knew winter was finally closing in around us. The old log house was getting ready for the cold blasts, freezing days and nights, and mountains of snow. Soon the Twenty-Acre Field would be covered, and Father would have to break a track so that we could still get over to our neighbours Uncle Alec and Aunt Bertha Thom’s with the sleigh and our team of horses. Father had to wait for the first big dump of snow, and know that it was going to stay, before he got the outside of the house ready. It would take more than a day, but when he was finished packing snow around the foundation, I was sure the house was warmer. But Mother was convinced nothing could take the chill off the icy floors. Inside, she did all she could to prepare us for the long cold days ahead. Blanket-stitched felt slippers, handmade after Aunt Bertha instructed Mother on how to sew them, were at the ready. All the braided rugs had been taken from under the beds, and laid out all over the house. The front door would not be opened again until spring, regardless of who was calling. In the kitchen, the storm door had been attached in an effort to keep out the cold north winds that always seemed to rattle the windows as it swept across the yard and hit our house with force. Mother encouraged us, once the snow was there to stay, to enter the house through the summer kitchen. We were expected to stomp our feet thoroughly on the way in, and once inside we took off our boots and they were lined up like soldiers on a braided rug beside the wood box next to the Findlay Oval. We all wore felt insoles, and they were removed and propped against a block of wood to dry out over night. Both the back door and the one coming in from the summer kitchen would have smaller braided rugs rolled tight, and placed tight against the closed doors, in the hope

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories that more of the winter drafts would be kept outside. But the biggest job of all was yet to come. It would take Mother hours. We would go off to Northcote School one morning, and come home to see every window downstairs plugged tight with worn-out work socks and strips of cloth from the rag bag. Using a butcher knife to cram the strips into the window frame, the windows were made as wind-proof as possible. And as tightly as she could cram in the scraps of material, you could run your hand around the window frame and still feel the draft. Once the winter was there to stay, every window pane in the house would frost up and turn white, and we could no longer see outside. That is unless I engaged in one of my favourite pastimes in the winter: taking a fingernail and scratching designs on the frosted pane, or holding my thumb in the one spot until I had created a small hole, through which I could see a smidgen of the outdoors. The only heat in the house came from the kitchen cook stove, and the silver enamelled pipes that snaked through the kitchen, escaped through a hole in the ceiling, going through what passed for a bedroom shared by my sister and me, and finally feeding out into the chimney and the roof of the house. By the time the pipe reached upstairs, there was very little heat left to do much more than take the bitter chill off the bedroom. Our kitchen would take on a whole new appearance in the winter as well. The old pine table would have to be moved from in front of the window, over to a side wall, the bake table moved to the space left by the pine table, the wood box

moved closer to the summer kitchen door, and the creton couch put at an angle. If this grand exchange did not take place, anyone sitting on the bench behind the table for a meal would be chilled to the bone from the window, in spite of the effort Mother put into keeping out winter drafts. During the winter months, prayers were said in the kitchen instead of upstairs. We five children all vied for the spot beside the stove pipe upstairs to change into our pyjamas. It was always a fast change indeed. If it was a bitterly cold night, Mother would have put the hot water bottle in the bed I shared with my sister Audrey, and wrapped bricks which had been heated on the Findlay Oval for the brothers. It didn’t take long for the bottle or the bricks to cool off, but by the time our bodies had burrowed into the feather tickings between the flannelette sheets, we were as cozy as bugs. The howling winds outside could have been blowing in some other county. The last thing I would hear before I fell asleep would be Father stoking the Findlay Oval. I would hear the lid of the firebox being scraped open, and I could picture in my mind’s eye Father cramming in a log of wood, and I would hear the crackle as it caught fire. I would have the most contented feeling of peace as the heat of the stove rose through the silver pipes in our bedroom. It wouldn’t be a great heat, but I knew it would be enough to keep us from freezing in our beds, and would keep warm our morning clothes which Audrey and I had draped on a chair beside the pipe. I would fall asleep feeling an inner warmth that made everything right in my world.

Village choir to sing its praises at annual Christmas concert Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Arts – Village Voices will offer the closest thing to a choir of angels when it takes the stage alongside the Ottawa Youth Harp Ensemble on Sunday, Dec. 15. The Russell-based women’s choir will offer a variety of Christmas music at Trinity Bible Church south of Osgoode beginning at 2

p.m. Choir member Cathy Graham said the show will range from classical Christmas pieces to spiritual and contemporary holiday songs. “We want everyone to have fun,” she said. “We usually like to have sing-alongs.” Graham said the choir’s director Karen Spicer will also lead the group in a number of fun, upbeat tunes

including some extra instrumentation. “Karen likes to assign different instruments to people to jazz things up,” she said. One of the songs will include a kazoo. Mary Muckle, director of the Ottawa Youth Harp Ensemble, will also lead a number of Christmas pieces with her students, who range in age from about 13 to 20. “We always enjoy having

them join us,” said Graham, who noted that Trinity Bible Church at 4101 Stagecoach Rd. is an ideal venue because it provides enough space for the seven or eight harps that

will likely join Muckle on stage. Tickets to the two-hour show are $12 in advance or $15 at the door, and can be reserved through Kay Porte-

ous at 613-821-2174. A gift basket raffle will be held following the concert along with refreshments. For more information visit www. freewebs.com/villagevoices.

Slow cooker beef and barley stew real comfort food

DECEMBER 2nd to 22nd, 2013

Lifestyle - A slow cooker is nice to come home to and the ideal appliance for cooking less tender but flavourful cuts of meat. Barley, a good source of fibre, thickens the stew without the need for flour. Serve this warming comfort food over mashed potatoes or with thick slabs of crusty whole-grain bread. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: about 15 minutes. Slow cooker time: 8 to 10 hours. Serves four. INGREDIENTS

• 500 g (1 lb) stewing beef cubes • 25 ml (2 tbsp) vegetable oil • 2 onions, chopped • 2 carrots, chopped • 500 ml (2 cups) beef broth • 125 ml (1/2 cup) pot pearl barley, rinsed • 15 ml (1 tbsp) packed brown sugar • 15 ml (1 tbsp) tomato paste • 15 ml (1 tbsp) red wine vinegar • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) dried thyme leaves

• 1 ml (1/4 tsp) pepper • 250 ml (1 cup) frozen peas, thawed PREPARATION

Trim any excess fat from the beef and cut any large pieces smaller. Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the beef until browned, in two batches if necessary. Transfer the beef to the slow cooker. Add the remaining oil to the pan and cook the

onions and carrots a few minutes until lightly softened. Stir in the broth, barley, brown sugar, tomato paste, vinegar, salt, thyme and pepper and bring to a simmer. Pour it into the slow cooker, and cover and cook on low for eight to 10 hours (or on high for four to five hours) until beef and barley are tender. Turn off slow cooker and stir in the peas and let stand for 10 minutes to heat them. Foodland Ontario

Community – An inaugural wine and food event in Manotick aims to support vulnerable women in the Ottawa area. The Women’s Integration Network will host its Let There Be Light event at the Main Street Cellar downtown Manotick on Sunday, Dec. 15. The afternoon event beginning at 1 p.m. will offer owner Kim Burns’ culinary creations paired with wine from the women-run Grange of Prince Edward winery. “It will be a chance for everyone to hang out and have a party, that’s the atmosphere we’re going for,” said Tara Dentry, one of the organizers and a founding member of WIN. The organization is still in its infancy; it was founded last year as a support network for women who have experienced hardship, either through pover-

ty, domestic abuse, addictions issues or other challenges. “We’re in the funding and program development stage,” Dentry said. “We have a vision and we know what we want to do.” The organization plans to match its clients with community volunteers who will act as mentors and a support system for the woman and her family. The volunteers would help their mentees navigate city’s social services and provide some fellowship and friendship. “The organization itself grew out of a group of women who committed to support each other in that way,” Dentry said. The organization is working with experts in the fields of social work, therapy, research and project management to help develop and implement the programs, the website said, and Dentry said the group hopes to have a permanent location soon.

A statue on display at the Women’s Integration Network’s launch party last year sums up the spirit of the organization, according to co-founder Tara Dentry. Tickets for the wine pairing event are $65 each and can be purchased at www.winwomen.ca. The Main Street Cellar is located at 5561 Manotick Main St.

Vana Markarian will be 1st OSU Force Academy player to represent Canada Internationally

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Light up the holidays Canadian Cancer Society staff Yolande Usher sells stocking stuffer luminaries at the society’s second annual holiday bazaar on Dec. 5. Shoppers can buy gift cards for their loved ones that represent one luminary, to be placed alongside the track during one of four Relay for Life events in Ottawa. The cards were designed by the Orleans event’s luminary committee volunteers, but they can be purchased for any of the four events in Ottawa.

It was a major step in his career, and a milestone moment for his soccer club. And at the moment where he found out that he’d become the first Ottawa South United athlete to represent Canada internationally via a text message from his dad, OSU Force Academy player Vana Markarian couldn’t believe it. “I was more shocked than excited,” recounts the Grade 11 student who received the news during his lunch break at St. Francis Xavier Catholic High School. “It was kind of unreal telling my friends, and they were more happy than I was. “I was just scared, to be honest. I mean, Team Canada – it’s a big thing. Out of the whole nation, I get to play with the best of the best and be alongside them representing my country. It’s an honour.” Markarian will leave Dec. 5 for Germany, where he’ll join the Canadian under-16 national team group already on tour en route to Qatar for a week. They’ll train a few days, then play matches against the Qatar youth national side as well as Qatari and German professional academy teams. “It’s exciting,” the OSU midfielder highlights. “I just want to have a successful week. I’d like to have a good showing and cement my place there – give the coaches and people something to think about.” The chance to play for Canada began with OSU referring Markarian to Team Ontario. He caught the eye of a Vancouver Whitecaps scout while winning gold with Ontario at the national all-star championships in July, and then went on to make history as his OSU U16 boys’ squad captured Ottawa’s first-ever Ontario Youth Soccer League championship. “I have to give credit to all my teammates, because without them, I wouldn’t be where I am right now,” says the OSU player since age 9, whose family moved from Iran when he was 2. “They’ve helped me grow. I’ve been with the same people – brothers – for the past eight years almost. They’ve had a huge role in what I’ve become, constantly pressuring me, and helping me become not only a better soccer player, but a better person.” In mid-November, Markarian went to Vancouver for a trial with the Major League Soccer club’s youth academy program. He performed well against the U16 group in his first two days there and was moved up to the U18 squad, featuring six players who’d just returned from Dubai and the U17 World Cup. “The quality was just unbelievable there,” notes Markarian, who was joined by OSU teammate Dante Cobisa for the trials. “I was really happy to have Dante there. Going into an environment where you’re basically competing for their spots on the team, it’s not easy. They clearly don’t want you there, so it’s nice having someone I knew there with me.” The Whitecaps forwarded Markarian’s name to the national team, which then led to the opportunity to join them overseas. Along with a good formal evaluation from the Whitecaps, the referral was a good omen that an invitation to join Vancouver’s academy may not be too far behind. “I don’t know what path I’m going to take – university, MLS professional – it’s a big, big question for me,” Markarian adds. “One of the most exciting parts of this is I have no idea where I’m going to land with it yet.” One thing that’s certain is that Markarian has achieved another historic feat in a season that’s already featured many for OSU, including former Markarian’s former teammate Kris Twardek of Millwall FC’s academy making his international debut for Czech Republic. “Ever since Day 1 when we started Ottawa South United over 10 years ago, we dreamed of having a player of ours wear Canadian colours,” signals OSU President Bill Michalopulos. “We hope and expect that Vana will be the first of many OSU players to don the maple leaf now that he’s broken the ice. Congratulations to Vana, and all those involved in his development, for putting in so much hard work and reaching this incredible level.”

News - Four recent graduates will be starting down a new career path thanks to the Ottawa Missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food training program. The four men started from scratch five months ago learning the ins and outs of being a chef from the missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head chef, Ric Watson, and his kitchen staff. The graduates all came from different stages and walks in life, but entered the kitchen with one thing in common -- the desire to cook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you have done for us is amazing,â&#x20AC;? said graduate Mike Massey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a life-changing experience for me and all the other students. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.â&#x20AC;? The Barrhaven native said he has been cooking for 17 years, but never formally, and when he found out about the missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program from an employment councillor, he said it was the ideal solution for him. Watson announced that Massey, like his three classmates, all have permanent employment thanks to the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel very proud for getting my certificate today,â&#x20AC;? Massey said. Massey, Amrit Vashisht, JosĂŠ Izquierdo and Ben Hutterer received

their certificates at a graduation ceremony at the mission on Dec. 5. The program started 10 years ago, based on Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to teach others his love for cooking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone gave me the opportunity to learn,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I came here, I saw that something like this program was lacking and that we could help people learn.â&#x20AC;? The program went from Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pipe dream to a program which partners with St. Lawrence College. The training program offers students the ability to learn how to cook, courses in Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, health and safety, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food handlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certification, standard First Aid and CPR. There are two sessions each year, in the summer and winter. Students are required to attend three hour shifts from Monday to Friday to learn theoretical and practical training. Graduates have gone on to work in restaurants across the city, or have continued their training at Algonquin College. Many Ottawa Mission staff attended the graduation, including the kitchen staff, client services staff and family and friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say enough about this program,â&#x20AC;?

The politics of traffic calming

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - City councillors will try – again – to take the politics out of local traffic issues. That was the direction set on Dec. 4, when the transportation committee discussed the results of Coun. Peter Hume’s local Alta Vista safe streets project, which he funded using his office budget. A report from city staff indicates the project was “clearly successful.” Two radar speed-display signs Hume purchased and placed at 35 locations around the ward showed the majority motorists travel well within the speed limit as they pass the signs. “It gives residents a perception of what 40 kilometres an hour feels like,” said Phil Landry, the city’s manager of traffic management. Three streets – Coronation and Kilborn avenues and Saunderson Drive – had 1.2-metre long speed limits painted onto the road. On Coronation, that led to more than a six per cent drop in people speeding over the 50 kilometres per hour limit and an average speed reduction of two kilometres per hour along that stretch. The figure was five kilometres per hour less for Saunderson and six kilometres per hour less on Kilborn, meaning

72 per cent of motorists complied with the speed limit on that street – up from 48 per cent the year before. Three new locations will get speed limits painted on them in Alta Vista Ward in 2014. Hume will also add another speed display sign to his office’s roster. Prompted by Innes. Coun. Rainer Bloess, other committee members agreed the issue of local traffic calming should be discussed as part of next year’s city budget. Councillors and staff can learn from Hume’s strategy, said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. “Maybe he can teach us how to find money in our budgets, too,” he joked. Finding money to address the endless stream of traffic complaints councillors receive is a reoccurring council conversation. “This is not really the intent of our office budgets,” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said. Council discussed creating a $30,000 traffic management fund for each ward in 2012, but instead decided on a onetime citywide $2.5 million fund to address a backlog of problems. Hume spent $1,968 of his office budget on the project in 2013, plus $2,500 in 2012 to buy speed display boards, which he assigns one of his staff members to move around once a week for half a day. Other councillors have purchased similar boards, which measure how fast passing motorists are going and display the speed on an electronic sign. COUNCIL JEALOUSY

Speeding and traffic calming are easily the topics coun-

cillors’ offices receive the most calls about, Hume said. Councillors say taking money meant for office operations and using it to put up things like speed display boards is a quick and effective way to show voters they are responding to those concerns. It’s seen as a quick win, Fleury said. “It is political because there are people in communities who are involved and want to see progress,” he said. “You get your political win in your community.” Fleury said some councillors have more flexibility in their budgets to be able to respond directly to those concerns. The efficacy of those responses is questionable, too, Fleury said. For instance, if a councillor is successful in getting the city to install reduced speed-limit signs, it doesn’t mean drivers will slow down. The same residents could be back lobbying for speed bumps a year later, Fleury said. “It’s something that always runs away from you,” he said. FILE “How much of it is a solution City staff say councillors’ initiatives to spend their office budgets on traffic-calming versus a band-aid?” All 22 councillors get the measures like speed display boards are seeing success. same amount of money for their office budget - $241,508 annually – but some councillors have other pressures such as high resident call volumes that put pressure on the councillor to put the money towards additional staff or other priorities. “There is a form of jealously there,” Fleury said. Councillors, including Fleury, agreed that the solution needs to be something that combines staff expertise and evidence-based approach with councillors’ local knowledge of the issues brought up by residents.

City launches one-stop shop for seniors’ services Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The city launched a onestop guide to seniors’ services during an information session at the Nepean Sportsplex on Dec. 5. It was the fourth information session on services for older adults hosted by the city in 2013, said chair of the city’s community and protective services committee Coun. Mark Taylor. “There’s an aging population in Ottawa, so there’s a never ending stream of folks becoming seniors,” he said. “It’s easier for us to bring the information out to the community.” The guide for seniors, which is entitled Guide to Services and Programs for Older Adults, is a listing of city services of interest to older adults. It’s available in print or online editions. Taylor said the print edition was going to be made available at the city’s recreation centres and other public facilities with a high senior demographic. “I think people know about the city’s different departments, but it helps to see what they offer,” Taylor said, adding public works has a snow clearing program that’s espe-

cially important now that the cold weather is here. Coun. Tim Tierney, who heads the city’s IT subcommittee, outlined the city’s Join Ottawa online search tool that will allow residents to sign up for a range of city services offered by the library, public health, parks and recreation and the cultural services department. The volunteer portal, available at ottawa.ca/volunteer will allow residents to search and apply for all the volunteer opportunities and do training online. The last of the three enhancements will be the older adult portal – which will house the guide for seniors’ services. “These three enhancements are about improving access,” Tierney said. Mayor Jim Watson said the idea for a guide was one of the things that came out of the seniors’ summit held a little more than a year ago. He added it’s important to for the city to gear its services to an aging population. “When I was mayor in the ’90s, I would go to two or three 100thbirthday celebrations a year,” he said. “This year I went to 37, 100th birthday celebrations.” He said the city now offers ac-

Pet Adoptions

BRUNO ID#A160725

Meet Bruno (A160725), a very sweet and lovable brindle-coloured male hound mix with boundless energy and endless kisses for you. Bruno is a survivor. The two-year-old tripod spent more than a month in critical care after he had his severely broken leg amputated. He became septic and went into organ failure, nearly dying before several surgeries and treatments saved his life. He’s a Foster Me First adoption because he has a vet appointment at the OHS on Dec. 16. Now all Bruno wants for Christmas is a family to run, play and cuddle with. He’s best suited to an active home with no small kids because having three legs has not slowed him down one bit! For more information on Bruno and all our adoptable animals, stop by the Ottawa Humane Society at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Check out our website at ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of pets up for adoption.

Sushi

Sushi (aka Sushi Roll) is our 4 month old fawn tabby kitten that we rescued from the Ottawa Humane Society. Sushi is your typical kitten; enjoys sleeping all day and gets the “night crazies” while we are trying to sleep. He has become so comfortable with us, our families and our house, that we have started training him to come and sit. Sushi loves playing hide & seek, running through his kitty tunnel and cuddling under the blankets at bedtime. This sport-loving kitten (curling is his favourite) is the purrfect addition to our family and we love him very much.

delivery program, a jolly way to surprise a loved one with a furry friend Yuletide morning. From kittens and rabbits to dogs and hamsters, the OHS is seeking families interested in having volunteer elves drop by with a new four-legged family member early Dec. 25. Regular adoption procedures apply, which means parents would come in to the shelter in advance to fill out an application form, be matched with the right pet, and speak with an adoption counsellor. The Christmas delivery program is busting the myth that pets should not be adopted during the holidays,

the fear being that animals are given as gifts with no thought to the commitment required to be a responsible owner. In fact, if you’ve been thinking about adding a pet to your family, this may be the time to do it, said Bruce Roney, OHS executive director. “Less travelling, smaller families, and time off during the holiday make this the perfect time of year to bond with a new pet,” Roney said. There are limited spaces so contact the OHS by phone at 613725-3166 ext. 258 or visit the shelter at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. to sign up today!

Some people are surprised to hear a humane society advocate holiday adoptions as one of the best times of the year to bring home a new pet. But it’s true! Families are smaller and travelling less. They typically have time off from work and school, enabling some bonding time with the new four-legged friend. Just imagine a Christmas morning where you not only fulfill your children’s holiday wishes but make a homeless animal’s dreams come true too! That’s the idea behind the Ottawa Humane Society’s Christmas

Hydro rates to soar as province unveils Long Term Energy Plan Benefit. For an average home using 800 kilowatt hours of hydro per month, this would mean monthly bills would rise from $125 to $178 by 2018. By 2032, the end of the plan’s time frame, this bill would be $210.

Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli is seen speaking in Ottawa in early 2013. On Dec. 2, Chiarelli unveiled the province’s Long Term Energy Plan, which will see hydro rates increase 42 per cent over the next five years.

News - Ontario residents can expect to continue paying more for electricity, even after years of significant rate increases. That was the key information contained within the province’s Long-Term Energy Plan, which was announced by Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli on Dec. 2. Released every three years, the plan maps out the chosen generation methods for the province’s energy requirements while forecasting how that generation will impact rates going forward. The 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan had little good news for those hoping for a reprieve on their bills. Rates are forecast to increase dramatically in the next several years, to the tune of 42 per cent by 2018, a figure which includes the scheduled removal of the 10 per cent Ontario Clean Energy

Our vision for Ontario is to create a clean, affordable and reliable energy system that focuses on conservation and addresses regional needs. ENERGY MINISTER BOB CHIARELLI

Chiarelli stressed the projections from this plan are lower than that of the 2010 plan due to measures taken to lower the cost of electricity generation. A number of actions, including scrapping plans to build new nuclear capacity and changes to an agreement with Samsung – the contract

at the heart of the 2009 Green Energy Act - are among the mitigating factors taken in the past year to rein in rate inflation. “This plan reflects what we heard from thousands of people and dozens of organizations right across the province,” Chiarelli said in a statement. “Our vision for Ontario is to create a clean, affordable and reliable energy system that focuses on conservation and addresses regional needs.” Under the 2013 plan, Ontario will continue to pursue renewable energy generation options, meaning more subsidized wind and solar, as well as increased hydroelectric generation. Coal-powered generation will be phased out by the end of 2013, and with plans for new nuclear capacity cancelled, production from that sector will eventually represent less than half of the province’s power mix. Opposition parties, who had been turning up the heat on the governing Liberals in recent months over hydro rates, spoke out following the release of the plan.

Too little, too late: opposition parties Continued from page 32

According to many of the stakeholders I have spoken to, the (long-term energy plan) is nothing more than a candy store ... (Ratepayers) are tired of it, they can’t afford it, they want it to stop. MPP LISA MACLEOD

“This doesn’t cut it for families who were expecting real relief from bills that keep climbing,” stated Horwath. Under the new plan, the existing Industrial Electricity Incentive for large hydro users would continue, and the Northern Industrial Electricity

Rate Program would be extended to 2016. Any continuation of the clean energy benefit, set to expire at the end of 2015, would require “legislative changes” and “take into account a number of factors, including the province’s financial situation.” In keeping with the “conservation over generation” theme of the plan, the government plans to lower energy usage during excessive peak times (such as summer heat waves) by expanding demand response to participating businesses, thus lowering energy usage – and generation costs – during these times. Incentives for homeowners to upgrade the efficiency of their homes were floated in the plan, a move that would see the cost of retrofits applied to the homeowner’s hydro bill. Annual reports detailing the state and progress of the energy sector going forward are included in the plan. Like the home retrofit incentives, the plan contains a number of tentative ideas for future consideration. These moves could have an impact on rates. Among them is the consideration of importing clean energy from neighbouring jurisdictions.

In legislature, Progressive Conservative energy critic Lisa MacLeod dubbed the document a “short-term energy plan,” saying the government “has a lot of nerve to come into the assembly and tell Ontarians they are not going to be paying as much as originally projected.” MacLeod cited the continuing loss of manufacturing jobs in the province as a product of the province’s energy policies. “According to many of the stakeholders I have spoken to, the LTEP is nothing more than a candy store – something for everyone – procuring 300 megawatts of wind and 140 megawatts of solar in 2014 and 2015, even though the province does not need the power,” said MacLeod. “(Ratepayers) are tired of it, they can’t afford it, they want it to stop.” New Democratic Party leader Andrea Horwath said in a release that the latest energy plan was the government’s way of distracting voters from its own past policy decisions. “The Liberal government is scrambling to take some long overdue steps today, but they’re still on the same old path that’s left Ontarians with

the highest hydro bills in the country,” said Horwath. Horwath said that off-peak hydro rates – which consumers were encouraged to take advantage of – have risen 40 per cent since the last energy plan in 2010, while overall hydro bills have doubled since the Liberals took office.

City to study pawn shop rules Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa is taking another look at whether it should license pawnbrokers. That option will be on the table as city staff study how effective the provincial pawnbroker legislation is – and how well the city is administering it compared to other municipalities. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who brought forward the issue, said the Pawnbrokers Act is outdated, making it difficult for the city to enforce. Part of the problem is that privacy legislation prevents the city from looking through a pawn shop’s records, even if the shop is found to have knowingly or unknowingly sold a stolen item. “They can only look item through item based on complaints due to privacy,” Fleury said.

“We’re not allowing our enforcement bodies to be able to enforce these books.”

They can only look item through item based on complaints due to privacy. We’re not allowing our enforcement bodies to be able to enforce these books. COUN. MATHIEU FLEURY

Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes said the system worked better when the city had a policy to collect identification information from people who sell items to pawnbrokers. In 2007, the city received an order from the provincial privacy commissioner to stop col-

lecting that information from “secondhand goods sellers,” but city lawyer Valerie Bietlot said the same restriction may not be applied to gathering it from pawnbrokers. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said governments should reconsider how they apply privacy legislation to things like pawn shops and stores that sell used goods. “This is quick becoming one of my biggest pet peeves,” he said. “The privacy act was not brought in to protect people reselling stolen goods.” On Dec. 5, the community and protective services committee directed city staff to consult with police and other municipalities to review how the Ontario Pawnbrokers Act is being applied and whether there are ways the city can tighten up enforcement. It also directed staff to determine whether the city should lobby the province for changes to the act.

Catholic board presents balanced budget for 2014

Orléans senior warns of phone scam Crooks tried to get $1,900 wired in fake court case Nevil Hunt nevil.hunt@metoland.com

Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Ted Hurley, a trustee that represents Kanata, was chosen as chairman of the Ottawa Catholic School Board during the annual general meeting on Dec. 3. Hurley has represented the area for five years and moves up the ladder from his previously position as vicechairman. “I will work with the trustees and administration to ensure that our schools remain places where kind words, helpful actions and a prayerful environment help students to achieve success,” Hurley wrote in a press release. Alison Baizana, who represents the area that corresponds with the municipal wards of Barrhaven and Gloucester-South Nepean, was chosen as vice-chairwoman. Baizana was elected in 2010. “It will be an honour and a privilege to work with Mr. Hurley, the

trustees and the administration of the board to continue on our mission of Catholic Education,” Baizana said. The Catholic board passed a budget of $441 million for the 2013-2014 year in June and has dealt with declining enrollment by opening up admission requirements for their schools. For the capital portion of the budget, $15.3 million was allocated for projects such as: expanding French in small schools, continued implementation of full day kindergarten and spending for a new school slated to open in the Orléans neighbourhood of Avalon in September 2015. Julian Hanlon, director of education for the board, said at the annual general meeting that administration will continue to focus on student success. “We continue to see improvements in all key areas – success for students, success for staff and stewardship of resources,” Hanlon said. “And it’s due to the dedication of all of our employees.”

News - Hours after scam artists tried to take her for $1,900, Ginette was still shaken up. On the morning of Dec. 4, the Orléans woman received a phone call from a woman who said she was Ginette’s adult daughter. The female caller said she was disoriented following a car accident and was now in a courtroom. The woman also started crying before the phone was handed off to a man who claimed to be a lawyer. The “lawyer” then told Ginette, who is in her 60s, a fictional story about her daughter. “He said she was drinking and driving and was in a bad accident in Laval, Que. and had spent the night in jail” Ginette said. “I was so emotional I didn’t catch onto what was going on.” The man named a store in Orléans where Ginette could wire $1,900 to him so her daughter could be released.

“It sounded so real,” Ginette said, her voice breaking as she recalled how the phone call affected her. “It frightened me half to death.” While the man was still on the phone, Ginette quickly sent a text message to her daughter on her cellphone and asked her to call her in Orléans. By the time they connected on the telephone and Ginette realized there was no emergency, the male caller had hung up the phone. No money was transferred in this case but Ginette wants other people to be aware of the scam. She also reported the call to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. The Orléans News is withholding Ginette’s last name so she is not identifiable. TALK TO YOUR FAMILY

Staff at the anti-fraud centre said the fake call experienced by Ginette is all too common and can come from anywhere in the world. “Sadly it’s a very successful scam,” said the centre’s senior calltaker supervisor Daniel Williams. He said grandparents are frequent targets and their names may simply be picked out of the phonebook. “Their heart-strings are being pulled,” Williams said of the seniors who may receive a call and believe

a young member of their family is in trouble. He added that the caller may ask the grandparent not to tell their “parents” because they don’t want to get in trouble. That may deter the grandparent from checking to see if the call is legitimate. Williams suggests families discuss what to do in emergencies so they have a plan. He said one person can act as the keeper of contact information for the extended family and be the first point of contact when real problems arise. Family members can then call them to confirm if the unexpected caller is being truthful. He also encouraged anyone who receives a call to report it to the antifraud centre and their local police, whether or not they’ve lost money. Information the centre and police receive about the changing false stories and false names callers use can help. “At the very least it makes the bad guys do more work,” Williams said of the details they receive about the scam calls.
