City makes Clapp Lane height concession Residents want secondary plan reviewed first Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news – City planners have changed their Clapp Lane zoning amendment proposal to include a 12 metre height limit instead of 13.5 metres, in response to public outcry. About 130 Manotick residents packed the arena’s community hall on Thursday, Aug. 2 to hear Coun. Scott Moffatt and city staff explain a zoning amendment proposal for a Dickinson Square property that would allow a mixeduse building next to Watson’s Mill. The Manotick Mill Quarter Community Development Corporation, a private corporation wholly owned by the city, bought several properties in the square in 2007, with the mandate to place strict development guidelines on them before selling or leasing them to recoup the $2.4 million investment. Now the corporation’s board chaired by Moffatt is preparing to sell 1125 Clapp Lane, which has the least historical significance and the highest revenue potential. In May, the board applied for a zoning amendment that would impose a 13.5 metre height limit, which residents argued would dwarf the mill and destroy the character of the square. The rationale for the taller limit was to make the property more marketable, so that the city can recoup more of its investment through the Clapp Lane property instead of having to touch Dickinson House and other heritage buildings in the square. Moffatt said that out of 100 emails he received on the issue, only one was in support.

In light of this, he and his team reduced the limit to 12 metres – half a metre shorter than the mill itself. “The focus was three storeys, and I think we addressed that with the 12 metres. It’s not higher than Watson’s Mill, which I know is important,” he said, adding that the community will get further input on specific designs once proposals from developers are received. “This isn’t the last time. They’re going to know what that building looks like before we even sell the property.” Manotick Village Community Association president Klaus Beltzner said he was pleased the councillor had listened to the community. “I see tonight as a turning point because the community got through to the councillor and staff. It wasn’t a ‘yes, but.’ Today it was a ‘yes,’” he said. “They did everything in their power to protect our current secondary plan.” SECONDARY PLAN FIRST

Residents remained critical that this zoning amendment proposal is even on the table, considering that Manotick’s secondary plan has never been reviewed since it was created in the late 1990s. Residents said they want to see the entire process of selling and developing the city’s mill quarter properties on hold until the village’s secondary plan is updated. Its review has been delayed several times over the past decade, most recently in early 2012 when city staff realized after several consultations that more studies were needed. See MOFFATT, page 4

Community looks for traffic fee break on Bridge Street Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Manotick community members are asking the city to waive a fee that could cause traffic havoc during Bridge Street construction. After months of developing a community-led traffic management plan that would keep both lanes open on Bridge Street while Princiotta Developments builds a new seniors’ residence, the city is now asking between $500 and $600 a day in rent from the developer to implement the plan. That could top $288,000 over the course of the 16-month project, and force the developer to resort

to closing lanes and flagging traffic, which does not require a fee. The Manotick Village Community Association is now calling on the city to waive the fee because its plan so clearly benefits the community, said association president Klaus Beltzner. The plan shifts both lanes of traffic south, keeping them narrow, but flowing. Meanwhile, the shift would create room for Princiotta’s construction vehicles along the north sidewalk. The plan is supported by residents, Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt, local emergency services representatives and Joe Princiotta, owner of the development company.

But the city would charge a fee to block the public sidewalk, a factor that Beltzner said never came up in planning meetings with city staff. Beltzner said that while Princiotta was on board with the community’s plan, he cannot be expected to pay the extra funds when a free alternative exists, even if it will negatively impact traffic for Manotick, Barrhaven and Riverside South residents who rely on the bridge to get across the Rideau River. Beltzner said the city should waive the fee or reduce it to $1 on the grounds that the community plan is more beneficial. See FEES, page 16

Judith McBride-King of Manotick is an avid boater on the canal and extremely concerned about the safety of the system should staff and maintenance be cut. She urged the government to look at some traditional options for raising revenue. “As a boater, I’m willing to see the fee increase for use of the system,” McBride-King said. “I’m happy to do that.” One person suggested the creation of a fundraising committee for the system that would organize and host special events with all funds going to the canal’s continued operation.

viewing contract workers and the savings that could come from paring down unnecessary work, as well as going after individuals who damage Parks Canada property during at-fault accidents. Brian Preston of Portland, a former public servant, feels cuts to hours and staffing along the waterway will do damage to the success of the Rideau Canal in the long term. “These are cuts to operations, the bottom of the pyramid; the people that make things work,” Preston said. Michael Harrington of the Burritts Rapids-Merrickville area said the canal is a gift from past generations and it is our collective responsibility to maintain it. “This is a very important thing about what it means to be Canadian. This is what makes us special,” Harrington said. Don Sherman, owner of the Waterway Getaway houseboat business in Smiths Falls, said any trimming of the season would cut his profits to the point of no return. “I will lose 30 per cent of

Moffatt to consider zoning proposal delay Continued from page 1

Moffatt said the review is now scheduled for 2013 if it isn’t bumped by other important items. However he said the corporation’s mandate is behind as well. The council-approved mandate from 2007 meant for the board to sell or lease the properties several years ago. Residents argued that since both are delayed, Moffatt should simply “go back to council and tell them we’re telling you to wait” until the secondary plan is finished,

Ottawa Valley Tours

one man suggested. Another resident stood up and asked, “What is more important: the review of the secondary plan for Manotick, or whatever this deadline is in regards to selling these properties? What’s more important to the community?” She received a loud round of applause. Community association past president Brian Tansley then asked Moffatt if he would bring a motion forward to the board to put the entire process

on hold until the secondary plan can be updated. Moffatt answered, “Yes, I can do that” several times, although he later told the EMC that he’ll speak informally to the board first. “I’m not going to bring something forward that I’m going to lose, so I’m going to talk to my colleagues and see where to go and see how we can achieve the goals that the community wants,” Moffatt said. If the board agrees to put the proposal on hold, he would then take it to council

Province asks to start drought relief program Dry conditions kickstart distaster process six weeks early Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Ontario Minister of Agriculture Ted McMeekin announces he has officially asked Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to begin assessing the province to see which regions qualify for AgriRecovery assistance. McMeekin spoke at a farm in North Gower on Tuesday, July 31.

EMC news - The Ontario government has asked the Harper government to consider a disaster relief program for drought-stricken farmers across the province. Ontario Agriculture Minister Ted McMeekin visited Foster Farms in North Gower on Tuesday, July 31 to announce he has officially asked Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to begin the process of determining which parts of Ontario can quality for financial support through the AgriRecovery disaster relief program, as a result of the extremely hot and dry weather. “Conditions vary across the province,” McMeekin told a small gathering of farmers. “Some areas are reporting excellent crops, while some believe they are facing disaster.” Farmers in areas identified as “prescribed drought regions” will have access to upfront payments to offset their losses and full disaster relief will be paid out once crops

are harvested and total losses are calculated. Determining which areas are in a disaster situation will take about 45 days, McMeekin said, but said he has kick-started the process about six weeks earlier than usual in order to help livestock farmers make prudent decisions as soon as possible. “Livestock producers are dealing with dry pastures and reduced hay yields and some are trying to figure out just how they’ll feed their animals this winter,” he said. “It’s a tough situation.” Some farmers are selling cattle so they don’t have to feed them, while others are scrambling to source feed from other parts of the province. Identifying the regions will also allow struggling farmers in those areas to defer part of their sale proceeds to a future tax year. “That’s important if you’re trying to manage through a tough situation,” McMeekin said. He also confirmed that farmers in drought regions will be protected from reductions in their agricultural stability coverage if they are forced to cull part of their breeding stock because of forage shortages. Retired North Gower farmer and Ottawa Cattlemen’s Association secretary John Newman said this announcement is in response to pressure from farmers to make decisions about disaster relief, as they run out of feed and money. “The farmers have all been saying ‘Tell me what you’re going to do,’ and that’s what’s going on today,” he said. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod said McMeekin’s call for AgriRecovery is “two weeks too late.” “He disappointed me, it took him too long to come,” said MacLeod, who said she was “blocked” from the event on July 31. “He should have been here two weeks ago. He should have been on the ground assessing it.” Late or not, Newman said the province is on the right track by asking the federal government to step in and begin assessments for disaster relief. “There’s no question that the province is doing the right thing,” he said.

McMeekin did not announce any new money for a provincial disaster relief program, but stressed that the province’s “permanent and predictable” relief programs will do their job to protect Ontario farmers. The province offers a range of production insurance programs, which farmers can choose to pay into like any other insurance program. When disaster strikes, those with insurance can make claims for financial assistance, including interim payments that would be made throughout the season before final losses are calculated. Another program, AgriStability, is an income insurance program that offsets the difference if a farmer’s income is well below his or her annual average. These programs are managed by the Ontario government agency, Agricorp. Another program, AgriInvest, is delivered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and works like a savings account that farmers can use to cover small income declines or to support investments. They can deposit 1.5 per cent of their net sales each year, which can be withdrawn any time. Newman recognized that the problem with AgriStability and the other provincial programs is that not everyone has bought into them and therefore it may be tricky to treat everyone fairly when it comes to disaster relief. “How are you going to treat people who haven’t signed onto the AgriStability program, to be fair? Because everybody’s in the same boat stress-wise, but I paid $10,000 for crop insurance and you didn’t pay anything,” he said. He suggested that offering relief to everyone while retroactively taking insurance premiums off cheques could be a palatable solution. McMeekin encouraged farmers to call Agricorp and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to discuss their options. In the meantime, he said the government will continue to monitor the situation. “While it’s too early to know the full implications of the current dry conditions, we are evaluating the situation daily and will continue to do so,” he said.

EMC news - Nearly 300 Metcalfe residents voted for their favourite mural design on July 14 and the wheels are now in motion to get it installed on the bridge. The Metcalfe Community Association put a call out in the spring for mural designs to decorate the “boring concrete wall� along Victoria Street heading into the village. Four designs were in the running, including one from seven-year-old Rowan McFarlane, but it was Jenn Wyngaarden’s mix of historical nostalgia that won by a landslide. Wyngaarden’s design received 179 votes and features the Metcalfe Fair ferris wheel, a brass band that played on the streets of Metcalfe in the early 1900s, as well as cows and barns to tie in the area’s rich farming history. “The whole bridge will

look quite beautiful when it’s done,� said association member Laurie Ann Holmes. The association is now preparing to turn the small design into a full-blown mural, which would be painted on panels that could be removed for safe keeping every winter. Holmes said the group is hoping to have the mural up in the spring. Another association member is also designing some decorative signs to hang on heritage lamp posts on either side of the bridge. With the blessing of the city already in hand, Holmes said they are now fundraising for supplies, applying for grants and researching the best materials for the artist. Wyngaarden was unavailable for comment, but Holmes said the artist is looking for helpers to prime the mural starting this fall. Her design is on display at the Metcalfe Variety store.

Investing in cycling will pay dividends

J

ust how bike friendly is Ottawa? The municipality has certainly been recognized in the past for its network of multi-use paths and cycling infrastructure. In 2010, Ottawa was one of four Canadian municipalities awarded a silver designation in the Bicycle Friendly Community Award Program, sponsored by the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada and Trek Canada. A study released in 2004 showed Ottawa had the high-

est percentage of bike commuters among all major municipalities in North America. Nearly three per cent of all Ottawans commuted to work using a bike, according to the study prepared by Market Opinion Research International. The city is hoping to increase the number of people who commute by bicycle to work, an ambitious but obtainable goal – we’re not exactly talking about re-inventing the wheel here. The city is on the right path

with its 20-year plan to improve cycling infrastructure and educating both cyclists and motorists alike. Ottawa is a geographically large city, with more than 6,000 kilometres of roads, 1,500 kilometres of sidewalks, 300 kilometres of multi-use pathways and 150 kilometres of on-road cycling facilities, The city’s cycling plan aims to make biking to work a more attractive option by increasing the number of bike lanes, paved shoulders, wide-curb lanes on multi-lane roads and

off-road pathways maintained by both the city and the National Capital Commission. It hopes to increase the number of trips taken by a bike from 4,500 in 2001 to 12,000 by 2021. Again, ambitious but doable. This week, Metroland Media presented the first of a two-part series on commuting in Ottawa by bicycle. The reporters tested four mostly off-road cycling routes from different parts of the city: Orleans, Kanata, Nepean and Barrhaven.

For the most part, the team was pleasantly surprised by how little time they had to spend on roads sharing lanes with fast-moving traffic. Both the city and the NCC possess an impressive network of off-route multi-use paths across Ottawa-Gatineau. But there is definitely room for improvement. Namely, connecting broken cycling links, improving signage and creating more bikeonly lanes. Let’s face it, one of the biggest fears people have is sharing the road with fast-moving vehicles. Our team of cycling reporters encountered bike lanes that suddenly ended and

problems travelling on roads with other traffic near highway exit and entrance ramps. Some of the cyclists we interviewed complained about sharing narrow lanes with other vehicles and streets missing bike lanes. But in general, the cyclists we spoke to said they enjoyed travelling to work – especially while travelling on the multiuse pathways maintained by the city and the NCC. Ottawa’s investment in its cycling infrastructure will pay dividends over the coming years by convincing more motorists to park their cars and instead enjoy a leisurely cycle to work.

COLUMN

The last taboo BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse

I

hate breastfeeding. There you have it: The one thing you’re not allowed to say in our culture. We can talk sex, drugs and rock n’ roll, but no one is allowed to say “I hate breastfeeding” at a time when public health, the hospitals, the midwives, the World Health Organization and your mother-in-law advocate breastfeeding for up to two years of baby’s life. But I hate it. And here’s why. Just the other night, I spent an hour waking my 10-day-old baby from a most glorious evening nap. (She’s a bit sleepy and the consultants – yes, they have highly paid consultants for breastfeeding – told me I had to feed her a minimum of every three hours ‘round the clock. Strike one for breastfeeding.) I gave her a bath, tickled her toes, and got her completely naked, all while she slept peacefully. When she finally woke up after three-quarters of an hour of terrible abuse, I spent the next 45 minutes trying to latch a screaming, red, naked thing on to a painfully full breast to no avail. (Strike two for breastfeeding). I then danced around the living room half naked to Lullabies of the World for a quarter of an hour (strike three), only to trick her into suckling while we were still moving. I finally sat down in the designated breastfeeding chair, which has become a near-permanent part of my butt due to the 17 hours each day I spend there (strike four). I was sweaty and exhausted, but fully prepared to look down at baby’s gorgeous little face and coach her through the feed. Would you

believe it? There was Little Darling with her left hand beside her cheek, and I kid you not, she was flipping me the bird. (Strike five.) No doubt about it, breastfeeding really sucks. (Pun intended.) You can call me selfish – and I’m sure you will – but frankly, I have better things to do than sit in a chair for an hour every two hours and tickle the toes of a sleepy baby. I could be working, exercising, playing with my other children, or cooking a meal. Crikey, in 17 hours a day, I could be writing the world’s greatest novel! But nope, there’s me, tethered to a chair, attempting to nourish the baby and watching basic cable to take the edge of the boredom. This is the third time I’ve done this, so it’s not a matter of novelty. I stuck it out with the other two because of the purported health benefits for both mother and baby, despite the fact I believe some of them to be overblown. Sure nursing a baby helps your uterus to contract post-birth, for example. But frankly, what’s come off my middle has certainly just been tacked on to my rear end, on which I sit all day. Can we say pear-shaped? I may be the only one bold enough to say it out loud, but I know there are other moms thinking daily about how much they hate breastfeeding. In fact, just the other day, a friend and first-time mother had this to say on Facebook: “Everyone talks about pregnancy and cravings. No one tells u about hunger, feeding a baby, no time for food and a feed/sleep schedule. I just ate a cob of corn standing beside the garbage after it sat in a pot cold for 6 hrs in under 3 minutes.” And that, my friends, is the reality of a breastfeeding mother. I haven’t even touched on the pumping, wet face cloths, cracked nipples and such. Believe me, there’s nothing glamorous about this exercise, despite public health’s attempts to make you think so. For the sake of a few dollars and the potential to ward off cancer, I’ll keep going for the moment. But if Little Darling flips me the bird again, I may just have to get out the bottles.

Ian Millar still jumping for Olympic joy 65-year-old veteran hoping to lead Canadian equestrian squad to glory Brian McNair

brian.mcnair@metroland.com

EMC sports - There surely can be no more interesting a bunch amongst the Canadian Olympians in London than the equestrian jumping team. Among the five team members, there’s one making a record-breaking 10th Olympic appearance, another coming off an historic individual gold medal win four years ago in Beijing, one who missed those Games with a broken back, a fourth who was at those Games and helped Canada win team silver, and a fifth who has made his way to Canada via France and Japan. And together, respectively, Ian Millar, Eric Lamaze, Tiffany Foster, Jill Henselwood and Yann Candele represent Canada’s best hope for an equestrian medal here at beautiful Greenwich Park in the heart of London. Sadly, a big part of the reason for the performance four years ago in Beijing, where Lamaze won gold and the team won silver, was credited to Hickstead, Lamaze’s brilliant horse who suddenly and tragically dropped dead last year. Lamaze had been eager to ride Hickstead again at these Games, and nearly pulled out as a result of his death, but decided to give it another go aboard Derly Chin de Muze. However, he admits it won’t quite be the same. “For me, with the tragedy that happened last year with Hickstead, I’m not coming to these Games really feeling like I’m defending my title. Hickstead would have still been in great shape and I’m sure having him here would have felt like defending my title,” said Lamaze, who lives in Schomberg, Ont. “Having said that, I come with a very, very young horse, we have a

great team. We’re going to try our very best.” Millar is arguably one of the Games biggest stories, or at least should be considering he’s setting a record with his 10th Olympic appearance and is competing at the age of 65. Dubbed Captain Canada, Millar is a native of Nova Scotia, but now lives near Perth where he runs Millar Brooke Farms. He began his Olympic journey at the 1972 Games in Munich, and hasn’t missed one since, excluding of course the 1980 boycotted Games in Moscow. Known most for pairing up with the famous Big Ben, Millar rode In Style in Beijing and will mount Star Power at these Games. “The whole thing is just such an interesting journey and I guess what I’ve really noticed the most is the evolution of the sport,” said Millar. “As we know all sports evolve tremendously and our sport is no different. It’s really not the same thing at all as it was in 1972. It’s a different type of horse we’re using, the style of riding is quite evolved, the way the courses are built, the material used. It’s virtually unrecognizable over this period of time. Henselwood, who like Lamaze and Millar was a part of the Beijing team silver, loves the venue at Greenwich Park, where history and fan knowledge is unsurpassed. “I think this venue is going to be friendly to the horses, to the concentration of the horses,” said 49-year-old resident of Oxford Mills, who will ride George. The jumping competition involves Aug. 4-6 qualifying and an Aug. 8 final. Follow Canada’s athletes as they go for the gold at yourottawaregion.com.

The Canadian women’s eight rowing team celebrate during the medal ceremony after winning a silver at the London 2012 Olympic Games on Aug. 2.

Canadian women’s eight win silver Dave Feschuk

EMC sports - Canada’s women’s eight won an Olympic silver medal on Aug. 2, bowing by half a boat length to their longtime rivals from the United States on the Eton Dorney rowing course. Racing in front of an estimated crowd of 30,000, the Canadians never really challenged the favoured U.S. boat. Canada finished 1.41 seconds behind the Americans to earn the Maple Leaf’s second rowing silver in as many days. The Netherlands won bronze. The men’s eight used a memorable late-race surge to place second to Germany on Aug. 1. Canada’s women’s eight included coxswain Lesley Thompson-Willie and Ashley Brzozowicz of London, Ont., Montreal’s Andreanne Morin, Darcy Marquardt and Lau-

ren Wilkinson of Vancouver, Regina’s Rachelle Viinberg, Thorold’s Natalie Mastracci, Winnipeg’s Janine Hanson and Krista Guloien of Port Moody, B.C. Thompson-Willie, a 53year-old teacher-librarian, has been a mainstay of Canada’s rowing program since she was named cox of the Canadian eight for the boycotted 1980 Moscow Games. Thursday saw her capture her fifth Olympic medal in a storied career that has seen her steer a Canadian shell at seven Games. Certainly the U.S. was a formidable foe. The defending Olympic gold medallists have gone undefeated since winning the 2006 world championships. But Canada, which had finished second to the Americans at each of the past two world champi-

ways the culmination of an arduous journey, certainly some on the Canadian crew have been on the trail longer than others. Vancouver’s Darcy Marquardt had been to two previous Olympics and finished fourth both times. After the heartbreak in Beijing four years ago, when Canada’s eight faded late and, she took a break from training’s grind and got a job in the financial services business. But the lure of another shot at stepping atop an Olympic podium – “unfinished business,” she called it – brought her back to a crew that also included Beijing eight holdovers Thompson-Willie, Morin and Brzozowicz. On Thursday, they celebrated a long-awaited moment on the podium.

onships, had recently gained confidence that an upset could be in the offing. While the Canadians finished three seconds back of the U.S. in Beijing in 2008, by last summer’s world championships, where Canada won silver, they had narrowed the margin to 0.74 seconds. At their only preOlympic matchup this year, at a World Cup race in Lucerne in May, Canada was second to the U.S. by a scant three hundredths of a second. As Canadian stroke Andreanne Morin pointed out, that translated to a finish-line gap the size of a plum. Alas, the U.S. left no doubt about their superiority on Thursday, opening up a lead of a full second after 500 metres and increasing the gap to 2.3 seconds at the 1,000-metre mark of the 2,000-metre race.

Mamma Mia wins vote for Manotick movie night EMC news - Manotick residents have voted to go to Greece this August with a screening of Mamma Mia in Dickinson Square. The second annual outdoor movie night organized by the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association called on residents to vote for their movie choice this summer. Votes were tallied at the end of July and organizer Susanne Zorzella said the musical had “significantly more” votes than the runner up, which was Matt Damon’s We Bought a Zoo. ET: Extra Terrestrial came in third place. The other options were Pirates of the

Wednesday, Aug. 22. Zorzella said the association is still deciding whether it will screen the regular Mamma Mia film, or a sing-a-long version. “My suspicion is a lot of people will burst into song anyway. Mamma Mia is that kind of movie,” she said. Costumes – such as ABBAinspired glitter bellbottoms and platform boots – are also welcome. While there is no charge for admission, the association will “pass the hat” and suggests $10 per person, although people are free to give what they can.

The movie will play at dusk on Wednesday, Aug. 15 in Dickinson Square, where families are welcome to bring chairs and blankets to enjoy the rare treat of an outdoor film. About 250 people voted in the movie survey, and Zorzella said she hopes that will translate into a reasonable turnout at the event.

that done as quickly as possible so I can start working,” Marrocco said. “I am probably going to instruct for a few years and then see where I go from there.” Other finalists for this year’s top amateur pilot competition include Andrew Michael Burns from British Columbia, Mathieu Jean William Caouette from Alberta, Shane Daniel Lanouette from Saskatchewan, Peter McKenzie Heron from Manitoba, Andrew Curtis Woods from Western Ontario, Damyan Atanasov Dochev from Central Ontario, Louis Rousseau from Quebec and Robert Joseph Forrest Nova Scotia.

EMC news - While becoming a professional pilot might be an exciting career choice, taking home the title of Canada’s Top Amateur Pilot would be a dream come true for 29year-old Andrea Lane Marrocco. The skies around Rockcliffe will be full from Aug. 15 to 18 with some of the Canada’s top amateur pilots competing to win the prestigious Webster trophy at the Rockcliffe Flying Club. Marroccco, from the Ottawa Flying Club, will be representing Eastern Ontario. “It is a little intimidating, but I am excited about it,” said Marrocco. Now in its 80th year, the competition determines the best amateur pilot in Canada. Nine amateur pilots from across the country will be vying for the award through written exams, simulator proficiency and demanding flight tests to determine who takes the award. “I would like to do well. I will do the best I can so I can win. It is very exciting and a great opportunity,” said Marrocco, who has spent 16 months training at Algonquin College to become a commercial pilot. “Flying is something I have always liked and always wanted to do.” Marrocco, who also holds a computer science degree from Queen’s University, said she chose flying because there are great careers in the industry. “Flying is a lot of fun,” she said. “You get to see many places and meet many interesting people. It is definitely a different world up there. There are great careers in it and it is fun. I like it.” The competition is in memory of John Webster, who lost his life in an aircraft accident at St. Hubert, Que., while practising to represent Canada in an aerobatic flying competition. In July 1931, a month before his death, Webster had represented Canada in his Curtiss-Reid Rambler in the King’s Cup Air Race in Britain. His devastated father created the trophy to inspire future amateur pilots. “The competition is a great opportunity to meet many nice

people and I am really looking forward to it,” said Marrocco. Amateur pilots aspiring to a career in aviation can be proud to affirm that they have competed in one of Canada’s most prestigious aviation events. Marrocco has been spending most of her time training. “I have been busy with a lot of flying and preparation on the ground that I have to go through,” she said. She is doing it along with working on her instructor rating. She hopes to be a flight instructor when she is done with her training. “I am here just about every day flying and trying to get

For the love of old boats Manotick Classic Boat Club hosts annual showcase Staff

EMC news – Classic boat enthusiasts from across the region are gearing up for the 37th-annual Ottawa International Antique and Classic Boat Show in Manotick. The showcase event will take place at the Long Island Locks on Saturday, Aug. 11. “It is fitting that the owners of old boats choose to congregate on our local (UNESCO) World Heritage site, the Rideau Canal, to show off their treasures to the public,” said Manotick Classic Boat Club marketing director Mark Krzyzanowski in a statement. The club hosts the event every year. About 50 boat lovers will proudly display their mahogany, cedar, and early fibreglass boats including outboards, canoes, utility boats, runabouts,

sedans and cruisers. The show will feature in-water displays as well as a land display in the Parks Canada woodland setting. The vintage of boats will span more than 75 years, from pre-Second World War antiques to classic boats up to 1975, to contemporary boats up to 1986. Joining them on land will be vendors of boating equipment and clothing as well as local non-profit groups with homemade products, as well as a food vendor. Parks Canada will add historical interpretation from the early days of the Rideau Canal. Younger kids will enjoy building and testing a wood boat to take home, while older children can test their skills in identifying the old boats on display. Participants can launch their boats Friday afternoon. On Friday evening, Manotick boat club members Dinah and Dave Scholfield will host a casual welcome reception at their home near Kars, which participants can access by car

or boat. The boat show is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parking is free and picnic space is available to complete the day. Participating boat owners are encouraged to take part in the “Ask the Captain” program that welcomes visitors to learn about their watercrafts. After the show on Saturday, the club will host a barbecue and informal awards ceremony at another club member’s nearby home. Krzyzanowski thanked the boat club’s sponsors, as their support allows the club to offer the free show each year. He encouraged all residents interested in classic boats to join the club, even if they don’t own their own boat. “MCBC welcomes all old boat lovers, with or without boats, to join its club along with the Antique and Classic Society, its international parent,” he said.

Corner store booze might not be worth it: store owner EMC news - Independent convenience stores might not be able to afford changes need to sell wine and beer, says one Ottawa store owner, even if the government agreed with a petition from a convenience store lobbying group. On July 25, the Ontario Convenience Stores Association took a petition with 112,500 names collected from 220 Ontario communities to the provincial government. The practice of limiting alcohol sales to LCBO stores and a select number of pro-

ducer-retailers like Wine Rack and the Beer Store is “archaic,” the OCSA said. The issue has long been debated in Ontario, but despite some apparently strong support for the petition, at least one Ottawa convenience store owner was hesitant. Ayoub’s Mini Mart has been a family business in Sandy Hill for around 30 years, but just reopened on July 1 after three years of rebuilding after a major fire. Being able to sell wine and beer might help attract people back to the store, said owner Nouha Chahine. “Liquor is too much, whis-

key and all that. Just the beer and wine that people use every day,” Chahine said. “Of course, it would be good and convenient for everybody.” But she doesn’t think it will happen. The government won’t agree to the change anyways, Chahine said. Even if it was permitted, it would be a heavy responsibility and an additional cost to change the configuration of the store. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak said he is open to the debate, but a spokesperson for Premier Dalton McGuinty said there is no need for change.

Mac’s Convenience Stores, one of the largest brands in Ottawa with 40 outlets in the urban area alone, is strongly in favour of beer and wine sales in its stores. “Absolutely, yes we would support this,” said Bruce

Watson, director of customer relations and government compliance for Mac’s. “The majority of Ontario residents would like to see this type of access.” With files from TorStar news service.

“This government believes that Ontarians are well served by the current retail system for beverage alcohol,” said Aly Vitunski, spokeswoman for Finance Minister Dwight Duncan. Insurance would really be the nail in the coffin, Chahine said. Ayoub’s stopped selling cigarettes several years ago after a series of thefts. Insurance rates kept going up and she decided it wasn’t worth the hassle or cost to sell tobacco. While she might give wine and beer sales a try if it was permitted, Chahine said she could see the same situation arising. Still, it might prop up sales for the independent store, Chahine said. “We’ve been struggling just to make a living,” she said. R0011515387

Remove from the oven and let sit for about five minutes. Place a large plate upside down over the cake pan. Holding both the plate and pan with potholders, turn upside down, then lift off the pan. Because the pan is lined with aluminum foil, it will lift off easily. Carefully peel the foil off the bottom of the cake. Serve warm with whipped cream. Serves six to eight.

It particularly benefits local drivers. “What with the delays in completing the Strandherd Bridge there is no alternative crossing for most people to consider and we just need to get this in place quickly,” he said. “Otherwise, we will be having major traffic back-ups that are much longer than our normal all day and peak period congestion experiences.” Beltzner said if the road must be flagged, drivers and trucks will look for shortcuts, particularly through Clapp Lane and Dickinson Road. Moffatt said he hasn’t fully discussed the issue with staff, but wants to explore the options to find a solution. “What Klaus (Beltzner) and (retired city traffic planner) Bruce Willems have developed along with Joe (Princiotta) makes sense and if there’s a way that we can do it, then hopefully we can do it,” he said. Moffatt said it wouldn’t cost the city anything to waive it. “We’re not talking about a cost recovery program, there’s no expense to the city were this to happen,” he said. Waiving such a fee would have to be approved by city council, but Moffatt suggested that going through the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee (ARAC) would be a more effective option than taking it to the city-wide transportation committee first. “It’s a rural specific committee, to deal with rural issues,” he said. “My colleagues on that committee understand the intricacies of our communities.” While the issue could also impact non-rural residents in Barrhaven who use Bridge Street to cross the river, Moffatt said pushing for the fee to be waived at ARAC would impact those non-rural residents positively. ARAC will not meet again until Thursday, Sept. 6.

New dock to help adaptive water skiers Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC sports - An adaptive water sports program in Osgoode is celebrating a significant step toward making life easier, safer and more accessible for its athletes. SkiAbility Ottawa offers not-for-profit sit- and standwater skiing for people with a range of physical disabilities across the region. Until this summer, the group had been operating off a dock that was less than ideal, located inside the W.A. Taylor conservation area in Osgoode. Too high off the water in an area too shallow to bring the boat to the dock, the slippery 1.2-by-2.4-metre floating dock has been replaced with a non-floating pad-andpole aluminum dock that juts much farther into the water. Tow boats can access it more easily, it sits lower to the water and has a handrail to keep

everyone stable. “It’s a huge deal,” said SkiAbility program co-ordinator Ross Holden, who helped cut the official ribbon at the dock on July 14. He said the old dock installed by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority was “a challenge” at the best of times. It was so shallow that athletes would have to walk or be carried to the tow boat. Several times, empty wheelchairs rolled into the water because the floating dock was unstable. But Holden said the conservation authority has been very supportive of SkiAbility’s bid to build a better, more permanent dock. They helped the group get its Parks Canada permit, and will install and remove the dock each spring and winter. The 11-metre long dock is located about 300 m north of the conservation area’s main dock and boat ramp. It cost

about $8,000 and features a 1.8-metre wide textured surface and several lengths of handrail along the bridge to shore and near the end of the dock. Tow boats can come right to the end of the dock now, although they still only have about 45 centimetres to work with. Holden said having a dock that allows athletes to get themselves in and out of the boat without help follows the group’s philosophy, which aims to keep athletes as independent as possible. Holden said participants don’t just get a free ride when they come out on Saturdays to water ski. “We’re going to make sure we’re teaching and getting them to progress. It’s our style,” he said. “It’s a control sport instead of a power sport, so we can have a quadriplegic person come and if they’ve only got neck muscle we’re

getting them involved in the sport to the extent that they can.” Holden, a Manotick resident, has been running adaptive ski programs from Osgoode since 2001, and in 2005 became part of the SkiAbility program created by Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada. Athletes only pay the cost of fuel for the boat, he said, and all coaching time is free. Competitive participants are generally expected to help out. “We want them being volunteers, and they don’t have a problem with that – they love it,” Holden said. While Holden clearly enjoys the task, the impact for the athletes can be outright life changing. Along with improving co-ordination and physical strength, it’s also about self-confidence and peer recognition. “They can go to school and

Rain brings a breath of life

T

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories remember most. Summer had erupted beautifully. The crops showed signs of good growth and the hot days meant that our

large garden should produce enough vegetables for daily eating, as well as a bountiful supply to can away for the winter.

R0011450401/0614

oday, every farmer dreads a long spell when no rain falls and he watches helplessly as his crops burn before his eyes. Often, if the drought happens in the late spring or early summer, the sprouts of new crops do not appear at all. But a long dry spell in the days when I was a young girl meant disaster and added backbreaking work. We had many such spells, but one I

Our old iron pump, close to the back door, received its usual coat of bright green paint and coughed up its regular gush of crystal clear water for household uses as well as providing a constant supply of drinking water for the farm animals. Two long galvanized troughs sat in the yard close to the pump and twice a day we took turns pumping while a couple of us hauled milk-pails full of water so the troughs were always kept full for the animals. The pump sat on a rickety wooden platform over the well and I can recall how we often would lie on our bellies with our eyes pressed close to the cracks in the boards. Way down deep in the cavity we would see the well’s black pit, where we would drop in stones and marvel at the hollow sound as they plopped into the water below. That year, however, the hot sunny days with no rain continued on. It wasn’t long until the ground in our lane settled into wide cracks in the clay and the normally moist sand around our back door became dry and powdered. Gradually the crops stopped growing and our garden had to be watered daily by carrying pails of water up a steep grade at the back of the house. Soon we noticed

that it took longer and longer to prime the pump. Often we would have to pump like fury before it would catch deep below and release the water. Then, just as if someone had turned off a tap, the pump had nothing more to give up. We were out of water. Still, we were better off than many farmers in the area. The Bonnechere River ran at the back of our property. It too was feeling the effects of the long dry spell, however, and the water had left its banks until just a three-metre span trickled down the centre. My father said we had no choice but to haul the water from the river. Daily, we hitched up the horses to the stone boat and with every available milk can balanced on the flat surface we made our way to the visibly-diminishing Bonnechere and filled the cans with water. Now, the troughs were only half full for the livestock and the reservoir on the Findlay Oval went for days without being filled. Our once-a-week baths were suspended and replaced with sponge baths and the Monday washing was shoved over for another day, just in case it rained. Every mouthful of water we drank came from the Bonnechere and was boiled on the stove, but none of us had much of a taste for it. The drought went on for weeks and the talk around our supper table centred on how we would manage to feed the livestock over the winter if

we had no hay. The evening singsongs ceased. Our parents wore worried looks that sent a pall over the entire household and I had a gnawing pain in the pit of my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Then one morning, very early, we heard the first gentle patter of a soft rain on the roof. It was only a matter of a few minutes until each of us ran to a window to search out the clouds in the early dawn. The sky was dark and we could hear Father yell, “It’s going to be an all-day rain, the sky is covered in cloud!” Soon it was teeming down like sheets of steel and our mother in her nightdress ran outside with the granite dishpan to place it under the eave to catch the soft water as it ran off the roof. We five children followed her out. In those days we slept in our underwear and we ran over the soaking grass like people possessed. It was the most beautiful feeling, with our hair hanging down over our eyes in sopping disarray. There was no thunder or lightning, just the soft beating of the rain that had come to breathe new life into our part of the Ottawa Valley. In the kitchen, Mother was frying a pan of homesmoked bacon and I knew there would be eggs and homemade jam for our toast, a breakfast usually reserved for Sundays. It was a day for rejoicing. The ache in my stomach was gone and I knew that once again, all was right in my world.

South Ottawa bike tour to support MS programs Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC sports - As many as 600 riders will leave from the Greely legion on Saturday, Aug. 11 to tackle a 220-kilometre ride in support of the Multiple Sclerosis Society in Ottawa. The annual two-day MS bike tour has changed its route for the first time in 23 years, with cyclists leaving from Greely instead of Carleton University and ending up in Cornwall instead of Kempt-

ville. The two-day ride requires a 110-kilometre trip on Saturday and another 110-km return trip on Sunday, after which the riders will enjoy a huge barbecue and celebration at the legion. Bike tour organizer Stephanie Desjardins said the MS Society changed the route this year because of traffic concerns for cyclists travelling through the city. “Coming out of Ottawa from Carleton, with the build-

ing of the Ottawa area, we’ve had a lot of concerns around traffic and safety so having it at a remote start will eliminate a lot of those issues,” Desjardins said. Also, the overnight accommodations at the Kemptville campus of Guelph University could only accommodate about 300 cyclists, whereas staying at the NAV Centre in Cornwall can give the event “room to grow.” The fundraiser also offers a one-day option of cycling 75

kilometres or 110 kilometres only, after which the cyclists will be shuttled back to the Greely start line. Those who bike both days can enjoy local bands, a corn roast and a catered dinner on Saturday night in Cornwall, before heading back Sunday morning. Last year’s event raised $430,000 for the Ottawa chapter of the MS Society, which used the funds for programming, education and support groups in the Ottawa and Eastern Ontario region. Desjardins said this year’s goal is $450,000 – and they’re on track. “We’re above last year at this time,” she said. “We’re confident we’re going to hit our goal.” And no wonder - top fund-

raising teams on the event’s website have hit more than $20,000, and a number of individuals have topped out past $12,000 in donations. To participate, cyclists must pay a $45 registration fee plus raise at least $250 in pledges. However Desjardins said late registrants – who can sign up as late as the day before - have a month after the event to raise the money, and it’s collected on the honour system. “We send out friendly reminders,” she said. Desjardins said the fundraising is a lifeline for the approximately 1,500 people living with multiple sclerosis in the Ottawa area. “It’s important to keep it local because people are look-

ing for support groups,” she said. “MS is not one of the more common diseases but it definitely impacts their lifestyle and their family’s and friends’ lifestyles. It’s important for them to get educated on the different solutions that are out there for them.” Multiple sclerosis is a neurological disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spine. It can lead to a wide range of neurological, physical and cognitive symptoms and is often progressive. There is no known cure for the disease. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson advocated to host the ride from the legion, and he will cycle part of the route with riders when they leave on Saturday morning.

Cycling the capital Staff

Ottawa boasts it is one of the most cycling-friendly cities in Canada. With good reason – in 2004, the municipality had the highest percentage of bike commuters among all major municipalities in North America. Nearly three per cent of all Ottawans commuted to work using a bicycle, according to

the study, prepared by Market Opinion Research International. Hopefully that number will grow, according to the city’s 20-year cycling master plan, which aims to make biking to work a more attractive option by increasing the number of bike lanes, paved shoulders, wide curb lanes on multi-lane roads and off-road pathways, maintained by both the city

and NCC. Metroland Media decided to check out just how bicycle-friendly Ottawa really is, sending a group of reporters out to test four mostly offroad cycling routes from different parts of the municipality to Ottawa City Hall. The four routes start from Orléans, Nepean, Barrhaven and Kanata. All four reporters were

novice cyclists and plotted as direct a route as possible but that avoided busy streets and traffic as much as possible, making generous use of the National Capital Commission’s and the city’s off-road multi-use pathways. Starting this week, Cycling the Capital, a two-part series, will explore a variety of issues dealing with the topic of cycling to work, includ-

ing the push to create cycling links throughout the city and prioritize the use of bikes as a mode of transportation, and a look at the impact of road construction on cyclists. Our series will also explore the importance of education – of both cyclists and motorists – and ways the city can make cycling a more comfortable option. We’ll meet with groups

who are opposed to the city’s push to create more segregated bike lanes such as the 1.3kilometre stretch recently introduced on Laurier Avenue. We will also look at ways to encourage children to commute to school and create future bike commuters. All Cycling the Capital stories and photographs will be posted on yourottawaregion.com.

Barrhaven paths offer pleasant ride Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

When I began mapping my route from Strandherd Drive and Greenbank Road in Barrhaven to city hall downtown, I expected to ride on busy arterials for most of my 24-kilometre trip. At first glance, the bikefriendly route Google Maps spits out takes you along such major roads as Fallowfield, Woodroffe and Prince of Wales. But upon closer inspection, I was pleasantly surprised to find that most of those roads actually have wide, well-paved cycling paths running alongside them. For all the outcry about inadequate cycling links across the city, for my purposes it seemed like I was in for an off-road cycling dream. Beginning on Greenbank at 8:11 a.m., I started on a paved cycling path that kept me off the road but still travelling in the most efficient direction towards my destination. By 8:14 I had hit my first road block – a path was closed for construction – and the detour briefly turned my internal compass upside down. But I was soon back on the main path, heading towards Woodroffe Avenue. The path abruptly ended while running parallel to Fallowfield Road, but it at least connected to a well-marked bike lane, which I hopped on for about 30 seconds before crossing the Woodroffe intersection without problems and joining the Greenbelt Trail. Now, this path was especially surprising. If I blocked out the clogged road to my left, I was free to enjoy the flat, smooth ride past horse ranches and farmers’ fields. At one point I found myself sailing through a cedar forest that briefly blocked the view of cars and allowed me to enjoy the soft morning light trickling through the trees. I even saw a rabbit. As a novice riding a pretty standard bike, it was humbling to think I had been so attached to my car, when all along I could have been enjoying a jaunt through the city’s green spaces. Connectivity did become an issue, however, through the Viewmount and Carleton

Heights areas. Most of this section followed quiet residential roads, and the path sections were confusing, badly paved and often no wider than a goat path. Frustrated and running late, I eventually gave up trying to navigate the path and instead took a residential road I knew would get me to Prince of Wales. The major lesson I took from this was that the city’s path network is by no means perfect, and for a new commuter it will take several false starts to iron out a route that works. To be fair, between the city and the National Capital Commission there are 260 kilometres of pathways throughout the region. There are also more than 270 kilometres of on-road facilities such as bike lanes and paved shoulders, according to Citizens for Safe Cycling (CfSC). With this infrastructure it seemed clearer to me than ever that commuting by bike can make sense for way more residents than we see on the paths. I only passed a handful of cyclists on my trip through Barrhaven and Nepean, and none of them looked like they were commuters. In fairness I did leave about an hour later than most cycle commuters heading downtown. Of course, the statistics were also against me. According to CfSC, South Nepean has a much smaller number of trips than areas close to downtown. Considering my commute was almost an 1.5 hours and required me to get up at the ungodly hour of 7:30 a.m., I can understand why.

Reporter Emma Jackson took to the streets and pathways of Barrhaven and Nepean to find a safe and enjoyable route for bike commuting to the city’s downtown.

Cycling education needs work, advocates say Emma Jackson and Laura Mueller emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - The city of Ottawa has been accused of ignoring the education component of its cycling strategy while it builds its cycling infrastructure across the municipality. To educate cyclists of all skill levels, the city runs CAN-Bike, a certified cycling curriculum created by the Canadian Cycling Association. Ottawa’s spring and summer schedule provided 56 opportunities for children, adults, novices and experts to learn to ride a bike or gain confidence commuting on major roads. But 46 per cent of those were cancelled due to low registration according to city spokesperson Jocelyne Turner, a statistic the Responsible Cycling Coalition said is the result of poor marketing. “The training as it exists is not being used because it’s not being promoted by the city,” said Avery Burdett, a cofounder of the small group that promotes vehicular cycling and opposes segregated bicycle lanes. “The city needs to take cycling far more seriously than they do. It has to be recognized that skills will reduce the risk of people getting injured.” Ontario’s chief coroner reviewed the

circumstances of cyclist deaths across the province between 2006 and 2010, and found that 73 per cent of cases identified cyclist errors as contributing factors. The city’s CAN-Bike portfolio manager Janice Phillips agreed that skilled cyclists will be safer on the roads – that’s the drive behind the CANBike program, which has a $40,000 budget in Ottawa. She said that some CAN-Bike programs are inevitably cancelled, but the program is built that way to increase opportunity ahead of demand. “We’re trying to build it so we’re putting out more programs than we expect to fill,” she said. Between 50 and 75 people take the CAN-Bike courses every season she said, and programs usually require a four-person minimum to proceed. The schedule was dominated by children’s courses, but also included commuter traffic skills courses, and a teen course on Friday nights, a women’s safety course, a seniors’ course and CAN-Bike level one and two courses. Private lessons on your own driveway are also available. New this year, the city will also offer four autumn sessions for children in September, as well as an

instructor’s course. City spokesperson Jocelyne Turner said there has been increased demand for private lessons this year, as well as the free “cycling rodeos” and safety workshops that are offered in partnership with Ottawa Public Health’s injury prevention helmet promotion program. Turner said those workshops have reached 2,805 children and 493 adults through 33 events, and more events are planned for the fall. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said the city should split its efforts equally between building infrastructure like segregated bike lanes and educating cyclists and drivers. “We have to do both. I don’t think it’s either-or,” he said. “We have to reinstate really good education programs and get them into schools.” He said CAN-Bike specifically needs more attention from the city. “They used to do much more and then it got cut, and then it got brought back in a much more modest way,” he said. “But I think we have to find a way to really properly fund and find a way to make available Can-Bike” or another education program, he said.

An abundance of delectable homemade food, the Odessa Antique Show is an excellent deal and a great event for a summer afternoon, not only for antique lovers but for anyone interested in eye-catching memorabilia.

Exhibitors More than 100 vendors from across Ontario, Quebec, and even Atlantic Canada, are expected at the event, which organizers describe as the largest antique show in Eastern Ontario. The event has survived for nearly a quarter of a century because it caters to both kinds of antique collectors. “You have a certain type of collector that is interested in purchasing items to decorate their house; they’re not so interested in the investment value,� Dobson said , said Bill Dobson, who was the owner of the show until he handed it over to Karen Leacock-Brown in 2011. “The other area is people who want to purchase things as a fairly good investment for value in the future. CL407511 www.odessaantiqueshow.ca “The interesting thing about the Odessa show is it’s so large and so diverse it satisfies all types of collectors.�

HARRIS, Devin Robert – February 28, 1989 August 10, 2011. Hear me as I whisper; ‘tho I whisper soft and low. There’s something I must tell you, there’s something you must know I know that life is fleeting; I know that this is true. I left this world so quickly, with no goodbye to you. I know how much you miss me, your tears fall ever light. The pillow where you lay your head, is wet most every night. But trust me when I tell you this, I’m happy here with God. To those that do not know the Lord, to them, this may seem odd. But forever I’ll be smiling, with those I walk among. I’ll be forever happy, and I’ll be forever young‌ I know my wings came early, for you, this was not planned. But God who is all knowing, will help you understand. Please know I’m with you always, I live inside your heart, and when once more we meet again, it’s then we’ll never part‌. So wipe your tears and smile for me, it’s only for a while. Then I’ll meet you here at Heaven’s gate, when you drive your last mile. “I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, As long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.â€?

ROO

ID#A141707

ID#A144291

Ride the Rideau, Eastern Ontario’s most successful cancer fundraiser By TRACEY TONG

Suzy is a black and white spayed female Domestic Shorthair cat who is about six years old. She was transferred to the OHS from another shelter on March 27 and has been patiently waiting for a forever home for more than four months. Suzy loves to be with her human companions. She has a laid-back, social personality and gets along with people who want a low-key, relaxed cat to hang out with. Suzy is a solid girl who would rather not be picked up or sit on your lap. She prefers to sit beside you, like a best friend.

HOW MANY IS TOO MANY?

Roo is an unaltered male, agouti degu who is just over a year old. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on July 4, and is one of several degus currently available for adoption. Degus are highly social animals. They live in burrows, and in the wild they use teamwork to construct elaborate underground tunnel systems. As pets, they spend a lot of time playing, chewing, and foraging for food. Degus are good communicators: they make up to 15 unique sounds, depending on their early socialization. They will greet their owners when someone approaches their cage. Don’t feed your degu anything sugary – they are highly susceptible to diabetes as their bodies do not tolerate sugars. No fresh fruits for these pets, because they prefer grass and seeds. Roo would do best if you we able to adopt his brother along with him. A pair of degus will provide endless hours of entertainment for the whole family. For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

Multiple pets can mean multiple rewards, but not without the resources to make it work.

like a park, using praise and treats to let the dogs experience good things in each other’s presence.

Just like people, pets need a proper introduction to feel comfortable. First impressions really do count when it comes to animals, and pets that have not met should not be introduced to one another in the same room until both have had a chance to warm up to the idea.

Let them investigate each other, but stay alert for signs of aggression. If you already have two or more dogs at home, it’s probably best to introduce them separately. Once all dogs have been introduced and seem to tolerate each other without signs of aggression or fear for an hour, take them home.

Keep the pets confined to separate areas, where they can smell each others’ presence but not see one another. Accustom the cats to each other’s scents by switching sleeping blankets, or rubbing the cats with the same towel. Once the new cat seems at home, switch the cats, confining the resident cats and allowing the new cat to explore the house. Return the cats to their original parts of the house, propping open the door just enough for the cats to see each other. Once the cats seem to tolerate each other, open the door. Mild protests (hissing, growling) from either cat are to be expected, but if behaviour starts to intensify (fighting), separate the cats and start over again. You may have to repeat this behaviour daily for a week or more. Use the same procedure to introduce a cat and dog, ensuring that the first meetings are closely supervised. With your dog on a leash, allow the cat to explore your home. Reward your dog’s positive behaviour with rewards and treats. Until you’re sure your cat is safe, keep the cat and dog separated when you aren’t at home. Introduce dogs to each other in neutral territory

Let the dogs drag their leashes in the house for the first few days, so you can safely intervene in case they fight. Extra supervision is required when you take two or more dogs out together, since two or more dogs are a pack and may bully other dogs at the park. The time required for pets to get along will vary, depending on the number and nature of your animals. The important thing is to take things slowly. If, however, the introductions result in aggressive behaviour, or aggressive behaviour doesn’t stop, consult your veterinarian or an animal behaviour specialist. Tips: Make sure all of your pets are neutered or spayed. Neutering or spaying greatly reduces territorial behaviour and many types of aggression. Take your new pet to the veterinarian for a thorough check-up to avoid exposing your current pets to disease. Make sure each pet has his own food and water dish. A separate litter box for each cat is also a

Manotick EMC - Thursday, August 9, 2012

If your multiple-pet household will include cats and dogs, make sure the cat’s food and litter box are inaccessible to the dog. Never leave a puppy alone with an adult dog until you are sure the puppy isn’t at risk of being injured (accidentally or intentionally) by the adult dog. Most dogs set limits with a growl or snarl, but some will respond with more aggressive behaviour. Be sure your older dog gets plenty of attention and some quiet time away from the puppy. A kitten may need to be kept separate from an energetic or young dog until she is fully grown. Sharing the house with another animal allows pets to use their natural, instinctive behaviour, communicating in their own language. Multiple cats and/ or dogs can keep each other company while you’re out of the house, as well. Bringing another pet into your home requires a substantial adjustment on the part of current residents, both animal and human. Twice the pets means twice the expense, and be sure you are able to meet all of your pets’ emotional as well as physical needs. In the City of Ottawa, residential homes are allowed a maximum combination of five cats and dogs, with no more than three dogs; or a maximum of five rabbits. To learn more about municipal bylaws that apply to other types of pets, contact the City of Ottawa at www.city.ottawa.on.ca. R0011543395

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

good idea.

whole ‘share the road’ thing. Both parties have to act responsibly,” said Bushtukah’s cycling manager Peter Shattmann. Cyclist Michelle Tribe agreed, noting that there needs to be a culture of respect. “We’re all kind of selfish about our spots on the road,” she said. “People are working 9 to 5 jobs and just think ‘Got to get to work, got to get home,’ and it’s a mentality of ‘everyone’s in my way.’ But you have the right no matter who you are or what vehicle you’re taking to be there.”

It might sound a bit unusual, but avid cyclist Elaine Robertson takes pleasure in finishing last. Three years ago, Robertson volunteered with the inaugural Ride the Rideau, a 100 km cycling fundraiser held in support of cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital. Ride the Rideau has since grown to become Eastern Ontario’s most successful single-day cancer fundraiser, raising $2.7 million in just two years. Last year’s event drew more than 715 riders, and this year’s event is expected to top that. “It’s a great cause,” said Robertson, a Nepean-area resident who is also a member of the Kanata-Nepean Bicycle Club. “The Ottawa Hospital is a cause close to home and the money stays here, so it’s a great, efficient fundraiser. And so many people benefit from it.” Robertson found her calling on that first Ride Day in 2010. “I enjoyed being in the back, riding with people who needed it the most,” she said. “A lot of them have bikes that aren’t so great. In the first year, one poor guy was having a really hard time, and his bike didn’t fit him very well. But he had a great attitude. And last year, the last finisher had one disaster after another. Her tires blew, but she wanted to finish, and she did. “People who can pull off a 100 km ride in two hours are more like racers,” she added. “It’s the people who haven’t gone that distance before that need us.”

Robertson also found that she got to know some of the riders. “Because it’s for cancer research, the ride is very emotional for some people,” she said. “It’s heartwrenching to hear what some people have gone through. Sometimes, people just need someone to listen.” Robertson enjoyed her Ride the Rideau volunteer experience so much that she will be returning as a Ride Guide for the third year. She takes pride in being at the back of the pack, because that is where she makes the biggest difference. “These riders are supporting cancer research, so they deserve our support,” she said. On September 8, join Elaine Robertson as a Ride the Rideau volunteer. Visit www. ridetherideau.ca for more information.

With hundreds of programs and courses available, you're sure to find something that fits.

In terms of promotion, Canadian Cycling Association’s CAN-Bike co-ordinator Andy Wilson said the national organization gives local facilitators the logos and materials to promote the courses, and it’s up to them to market them to its residents. He said the cycling association is partly to blame for the fact that CAN-Bike has not become the household name it should have been since it was created in the 1980s. “It’s something we’re

working on, the branding aspect of it. We’ve recognized that it needs to be a household name, it needs to be recognized and have a specific look,” he said. Turner said CAN-Bike programs are promoted locally at city events, on the website and posters at city facilities, as well as in flyers distributed by Ottawa Public Health. But drivers also have a responsibility to understand cycling signals and rules. “The city could do more in active education, not only for cyclists but for drivers. It’s the

board chaired by Moffatt is preparing to sell 1125 Clapp Lane, which has the least historical significance and the highest revenue potential. In May, the board applied for a zoning amendment that would impose a 13.5 metre height limit, which residents argued would dwarf the mill and destroy the character of the square. The rationale for the taller limit was to make the property more marketable, so that the city can recoup more of its investment through the Clapp Lane property instead of having to touch Dickinson House and other heritage buildings in the square. Moffatt said that out of 100 emails he received on the issue, only one was in support.

secondary plan FIrsT

Residents remained critical that this zoning amendment proposal is even on the table, considering that Manotick’s secondary plan has never been reviewed since it was created in the late 1990s. Residents said they want to see the entire process of selling and developing the city’s mill quarter properties on hold until the village’s secondary plan is updated. Its review has been delayed several times over the past decade, most recently in early 2012 when city staff realized after several consultations that more studies were needed. See MOFFATT, page 4

fee break on Bridge Street Emma Jackson

EMC news - Manotick community members are asking the city to waive a fee that could cause traffic havoc during Bridge Street construction. After months of developing a community-led traffic management plan that would keep both lanes open on Bridge Street while Princiotta Developments builds a new seniors’ residence, the city is now asking between $500 and $600 a day in rent from the developer to implement the plan. That could top $288,000 over the course of the 16-month project, and force the developer to resort to closing lanes and

flagging traffic, which does not require a fee. The Manotick Village Community Association is now calling on the city to waive the fee because its plan so clearly benefits the community, said association president Klaus Beltzner. The plan shifts both lanes of traffic south, keeping them narrow, but flowing. Meanwhile, the shift would create room for Princiotta’s construction vehicles along the north sidewalk. The plan is supported by residents, Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt, local emergency services representatives and Joe Princiotta, owner of the development company.

But the city would charge a fee to block the public sidewalk, a factor that Beltzner said never came up in planning meetings with city staff. Beltzner said that while Princiotta was on board with the community’s plan, he cannot be expected to pay the extra funds when a free alternative exists, even if it will negatively impact traffic for Manotick, Barrhaven and Riverside South residents who rely on the bridge to get across the Rideau River. Beltzner said the city should waive the fee or reduce it to $1 on the grounds that the community plan is more beneficial. See FEES, page 16
