Conservative MPPs decry wind power in North Gower Emma Jackson

EMC news – A group of Progressive Conservative MPPs joined Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod in North Gower on Aug. 21 to oppose the Ontario government’s commitment to wind power in Ontario. A small group of North Gower residents have been fighting a Prowind proposal to build 10 industrial wind turbines just outside the village boundaries, and PC energy critic Vic Fedeli and MPPs Bob Bailey and Randy Pettapiece took time from the Association of Municipalities Ontario conference in Ottawa to show their solidarity. Fedeli did most of the talking at the brief event at the

Rideau Township Archives on North Gower’s main street. He said the McGuinty government’s plan to bring green energy into the province is failing. “The government’s dream of bringing green energy was forced on Ontario by overpaying for FIT (the feed-in tariff program) and guaranteeing to buy the power whenever it’s made, which is usually at night,” he told a small gathering of residents. “And they stripped municipalities of their decision-making power.” He said the PC party would like to reverse those three elements of the Green Energy Act, so that residents can have more power to decide what energy projects are built in their communities. “When you want green en-

ergy in your community, (municipalities can ask) is it in a willing host community, do we need the power and is it at a price we can afford,” Fedeli said.

“The government’s dream of bringing green energy was forced on Ontario by overpaying for FIT and guaranteeing to buy the power whenever it’s made.” VIC FEDELI, PC ENERGY CRITIC

The party is also asking to put all proposed wind projects in the province on hold until a federal study on the health ef-

fects of wind turbines is completed. Gary Thomas, owner of Thomas Tree Farm on McCordick Road, said his house and farm will be within one kilometre of “four or five” turbines planned for the area. He said he’s done some basic calculations and thinks that from about December to February he will experience shadows from the turbines in the afternoons. “It would drive you crazy. I couldn’t live there, and we’ve been here for 32 years,” said his wife Ruth Thomas. Thomas said he’s concerned that it will ruin his oldfashioned Christmas tree cutting events. “With the turbines across the road, I don’t know how old-fashioned it will be,” he said.

Passing on the family farm will become difficult as well, because his son’s family will likely refuse to come because of health concerns. Thomas said he wishes he could be more supportive of such an initiative. “If they were of any benefit, it would be a different story,” he said. The Conservatives have long lambasted the McGuinty government for their commitment to wind power, claiming that turbines are inefficient and less green than traditional sources of power such as hydro. Fedeli said he wants the government to focus on retrofitting existing dams and hydro plants to harness water energy, which he said would be more environmentally-friendly and more cost-effective.

City’s Plasco deals almost finalized over residential garbage and use a novel plasma process to turn it into electricity. It has taken eight months, but ďŹ nal contracts are right around the corner, said Plasco CEO Rod Bryden. “I think that both the city and we thought that we’d be done maybe two months ago,â€? Bryden said. The delay amounts to the “meticulous careâ€? the city and its lawyers have taken when it comes to “analyzing every wordâ€? in the series of six agreements that will soon be signed.

Laura Mueller

EMC news – The city and Plasco Energy Group could be days away from ďŹ nalizing contracts needed to bring a world-ďŹ rst garbage-to-energy plant in Ottawa. The company has been quiet for the past eight months, since city council signed off on the terms of the deal last December. The contract will make Ottawa the ďŹ rst city in the world to use Plasco’s plasma gasiďŹ cation technology to take left-

Environment committee chairwoman Coun. Maria McRae was pleased to hear that. “These are very complicated technical legal agreements,� she said. “Council did not give a mandate to city manager to execute them quickly, he was asked to execute them thoroughly.� Last December, city manager Kent Kirkpatrick said the deal is a good one for the city. “We have been very, very diligent in protecting the city’s

interests if this works out ‌ and if it doesn’t (work out),â€? Kirkpatrick said at the time. Part of that conďŹ dence comes from the willingness of international investors to put their money into Plasco’s plan. The “due diligenceâ€? of corporations that are investing millions of dollars into the projects is something the city can take as a sign of faith. If that money – and faith – is still there when Plasco begins constructing the facility, it’s a good sign, Kirkpatrick said. Bryden spoke to the Man-

otick EMC following a presentation to municipal politicians from across the province at the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference held in Ottawa from Aug. 19 to 22. He said his company is already in the process of tendering for production of the equipment needed for the plant, which will process 109,500 tonnes of Ottawa’s residential garbage each year. Construction on the site near the Trail Road landďŹ ll will begin this spring, Bryden said, and it should wrap up by the ďŹ rst three months of 2014. After a six-month conditioning period, it will be ready for full-scale processing, Bryden said. The city has already agreed to pay a tipping fee of $82.25 for each tonne of trash delivered to Plasco for processing. That would amount to $9.1 million per year. Plasco leases the threehectare piece of land from the city for a nominal fee, and the land isn’t taxed, but Plasco is covering the $175 million needed to construct the facility. There is also a revenue sharing agreement for proďŹ ts made from selling the electricity to be produced at the

Plasco plant. The biggest ďŹ nancial beneďŹ t of the Plasco plant would be the extended life it will give to the Trail Road landďŹ ll, city treasurer Marion Simulik said last December. The city estimates it would cost $248 million in 2011 dollars to ďŹ nd a new landďŹ ll. Without Plasco, the city would be forced to do that in 2042, but using the new technology would extend the dump’s life until 2070. “This is a thrilling and exciting time in the city of Ottawa. It’s a huge step in waste disposal world,â€? McRae said. “I want this thing to rock and roll.â€? If for some reason the city and Plasco don’t end up proceeding with their partnership, Plasco could always take the “modulesâ€? of equipment on order for its Ottawa plant and re-use them for other facilities it has in the works in China, California, the United Kingdom and the Bahamas. While Ottawa is still on track to have the ďŹ rst full-scale Plasco facility, Bryden said he hopes to sell 130 modules (each plant could be between one and three modules, depending on how much waste it will process) in the next ďŹ ve years.

Just Kiddin season postponed to focus on founder’s family Emma Jackson

EMC news – Just Kiddin Theatre founder Andrie Nel has postponed the 20122013 season to next fall so she can focus on her family, she said. On Friday, Aug. 17 the kids’ theatre group based in Metcalfe announced that “due to unforeseen circumstances” the upcoming fall session and spring 2013 session were being postponed to the following September. Nel later said that she needs to focus on supporting her family, which she said has been “on a rollercoaster” for several years. Since she has long been the brains behind the organization, she said it was too difficult to hand over the season’s programming to her staff and volunteers on such short notice. The chances of a successful handover were reduced because Nel and her team had planned to launch a series of new programs this fall. Nel

had designed them herself, and was a key component in getting them off the ground. The programs included an introductory course called Setting the Stage that focused on theatre basics while producing a short play for friends and family. Several theatre skills workshops were also planned for the fall, and in spring 2013 Nel planned to launch a new Repertory Company that would offer advanced community theatre to teens and kids in the area. While the organization worked hard in the past year to prepare for a situation where Nel might have to leave, she said the group wasn’t ready to take over yet. “Although they were theoretically prepared to run with the program, the timing combined with my new program vision put too much risk at stake. Hence the decision to postpone,” she said in an email. “It was a wise decision regardless of how disappointing.”

Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak told provincial municipal leaders that the Ontario government needs to focus more on economic development and issues in eastern Ontario and other areas outside the GTA.

Hudak wants to slow payments to cities


Balance budget and encourage prosperity outside the GTA, he says Laura Mueller

EMC news – Municipalities should dial down their expectations for provincial funding because Ontario needs to get serious about tackling its debt and balancing the budget, provincial conservative leader Tim Hudak said in Ottawa last week. Hudak spoke to a packed room of municipal representatives from across the province during the annual Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) conference Aug. 19 to 22. Hudak surprised many municipal leaders at last year’s AMO conference in London, Ont. by stating that he would

only commit to the $1 billion or so the province had already uploaded – the implication being that he wouldn’t commit to taking back the remaining $500 million the provincial Liberals had promised to municipalities. This year, Hudak is singing a slightly different tune. “We’re committed to it. We want to see the project done,” Hudak said. “I think anyone that comes out and says they have all kinds of money to do it in a particular time frame is not being honest with municipal leaders.” Hudak told delegates the final $500 million or so is supposed to be uploaded from municipalities by 2019. Hudak pointed to the Drummond re-

ernment has lost sight of vast parts of our province – eastern Ontario, rural and northern (Ontario),” Hudak said. “I do have a great concern that this government is dominated by thinking that is strictly around the City of Toronto. “We also need to have strong, thriving small-town communities, northern communities and a strong City of Ottawa.” When it comes to funding items like the Ottawa River Action Plan, Hudak said doling out new funding wouldn’t be at the top of his list if he were leading the government. “Job number one” is ending overspending and balancing the budget, Hudak said. “Otherwise, we won’t have the services we hold near and dear to our hearts,” he added.

port on Ontario public service reform. The report, released in February, stated it would be more financially feasible to extend the uploading deadline to 2020. Hudak suggested 2021 as an option, but emphasized that he wouldn’t commit to a particular deadline for the rest of the funding. “To be honest, we’re in a mess. But we’ll get the job done,” Hudak said. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

Strengthening local economies throughout the province – not just the GTA – is a priority for Hudak, he told reporters following his speech. “I do think that this gov-

Tensions between the province and teachers’ unions reached a fever pitch last week with the news that MPPs would be recalled early to legislate a new contract. Premier Dalton McGuinty wants his “Putting Students First” legislation dealt with by the end of the month to institute some wage freezes and a two-year strike ban. Hudak stopped short of saying he’d support the legislation. “I think it’s been badly bungled, and sadly, students and parents are paying the price as the school year is in jeopardy,” Hudak said. The Progressive Conservatives want a “fair, balanced and reasonable” approach that includes across-the-board wage freezes. Hudak says he would want assurances that there are no “loopholes” that prevent salary increases in other ways, such as merit pay. “We’ll look closely to make sure those elements are there,” Hudak says. “I do think there is a better plan and I will continue to press that plan.”

Ottawa Valley Attack Fourth at Nationals


Jennifer Hemmings explains the details of a new park to a small group of Greely residents on Tuesday, Aug. 21. The new Shadow Ridge park will likely be built in 2013.

Nature inspires new park design in Greely

EMC news – Greely residents got their first look at a new park planned for the new Shadow Ridge development at an open house on Tuesday, Aug. 21. Once completed, the new park on the southern boundary of the village will include junior and senior playground areas, swings, open space play zones, and four paved access paths. The park incorporates natural elements, including a “treehouse� theme for the playground equipment and logs and boulders for seating in the playground area. Plants and trees will spill into the playground’s wood chip base in an effort to more naturally blend the edges of the playground with its surrounding green space. A separate sand pit will include several “fossil dig� features, where large stones with images of dinosaurs, shells and fossils will be buried in the sand for kids to find. Cedar rail fences will surround the park. “The theme is staying true to the rustic character that we like to imagine in this area,� said city park planner Jennifer Hemmings. “We’re find-

ing parks are just one piece of playground equipment surrounded by asphalt, so we’re trying to blend it a bit more.� The park will also include large canvas shade umbrellas in the summer, which will be taken down in the winter months. Hemmings said the park is too small for any larger facilities, but will hopefully serve the new Shadow Ridge community for many years since the play structures are geared towards several different age groups. The design money was approved in the 2012 budget, and she hopes to have the construction money in 2013 – although the city could be prepared to build long before they even have the park property in hand. Currently the city owns one part of the proposed parkland, which it acquired through phase one of the Shadow Ridge development. However the second phase has not yet been registered with the city, and the city won’t have access to the land until that happens. “We’ll likely have the designs and the tender, and we’ll be waiting for roads to be built before we can go in to build the park,� Hemmings explained.

She was still optimistic that the park would be started in 2013. New Shadow Ridge resident Michelle Hitchinson, whose family moved into the area three months ago with a newborn son, said she’s glad to see a neighbourhood park coming to the area. “It looks promising. I’m happy they’re putting in a park, because everything, we have to drive to,� she said. She came to the open house with hopes of a larger park with more facilities like tennis courts, but she said she understands that budget and space restrictions play a role. Hemmings assured the handful of residents at the meeting that a larger community park is planned for the Cadieux development further north, which will likely be designed in 2016. She said it would have a water source so elements like splash pads and sports facilities are an option. For more information about the Shadow Ridge park or to provide feedback, visit under the City Hall planning tab. Comments can be directed to jennifer.hemmings@ or 613-580-2424, ext. 20157 over the next few weeks.


Emma Jackson

The girl’s fastball team from the Valley headed to Truro, Nova Scotia last week to battle the top tier I Junior teams in Canada for the National Championship. In nine tightly contested games the girls fought their way to a fourth place ďŹ nish in the event. In their ďŹ rst game against the Nova Scotia Storm the team showed they meant business. They used a solid defence to score a 4–1 win in a tightly played game. Jean Cardona picked up the win allowing 4 hits and striking out 6 batters. Grace Lonergan and Kiley O’Connor led the offense with 2 hits apiece. Aisha O’Connor and Lonergan started things off by hitting singles and scoring in the ďŹ rst inning for an early 2-0 lead. A pinch hit single in the 6th inning by Bronwyn Ferguson was the big hit of the game and increased the lead from 2-1 to 4-1. In game 2 the Attack faced the New Brunswick Juniors and produced another close 4-1 win. Ashley Tyrrell picked up the win allowing 4 hits and striking out 11 batters. Tawny Godin and Vic Rumph had 2 runs batted in each in the game. Cardona and Lonergan each contributed 2 hits apiece. In game 3 the Valley girls played the Edmonton Warriors and won 5-0. Cardona pitched a complete game 3-hitter and struck out 5 batters. In this game Rumph contributed 3 hits and Nadine D’Entremont produced 2 runs batted in. Michelle Miller, Kelly Meek and Godin also contributed key hits in the Attacks offense. The fourth game was between the Attack and the Saskatoon Synergy. Another tight game had the Attack lose 1-0 in a pitchers duel. Tyrrell was the tough luck loser pitching a great 3 hitter for the Valley girls and striking out 7 Saskatoon batters. The inďŹ eld of Meek, D’Entremont, A. O’Connor and Emily Atkinson-Jones was terriďŹ c in support of Tyrrell. The Attack only produced 3 singles by K. O’Connor, Cardona and Meek. The team next faced the Newfoundland Selects. Cardona and A. O’Connor combined for a 1 hitter in the pitchers circle leading the Attack to an 11-0 ďŹ ve innings win. Lonergan and A. O’Connor had 3 hits apiece for the Attack offensively. In the 6th and ďŹ nal round robin game of the Junior Tier I National Championships the competition was Team British Columbia. This game ended up being the most exciting game so far in the tournament. What ensued was an extra inning 5-4 nail-biter that was won by Team BC in 8 innings. Tyrrell, pitching for the Attack, did a great job keeping the potent BC line-up in check throughout the game. She was aided by

a superb defensive game by the OVA outďŹ eld. K. O’Connor, Godin and Ferguson all made exceptional catches to keep the game close but Ferguson’s diving catch in the 6th inning with 2 runners on was the highlight of the evening. Offensively, Lonergan, Tyrrell and Ferguson had runs batted in while A. O’Connor, Godin, Meek and Ferguson scored the runs. The Attacks 4 win 2 loss record was good for 3rd place in their pool and they started the playoff round with no room for error as one loss and their Nationals were over. A tournament all star team was chosen after the round robin and the OVA was well represented. Grace Lonergan was chosen as the all star catcher and Vic Rumph as the all star utility player. Both players played well both offensively and defensively and were very deserving of the honors. In the ďŹ rst elimination game the Attack faced the Saskatoon Coop G-Force from the other pool. Cardona entered the pitchers circle and produced a tight 2-1 win. She allowed 7 hits and had 8 strike-outs. Cardona and Miller scored the runs while Rumph and Cardona had the RBI’s. In playoff game 2 the opposition was the powerful Manitoba Smittys Terminators. Tyrrell again pitched well and lead the Attack to a 4-2 win in scattering 6 hits. Rumph with 3 hits and Godin with 2 lead the offense for the Valley girls. The win meant the team would play for a Bronze medal on Sunday morning against their Provincial rival Brantford Bobcats. Day ďŹ ve and game #9 at the Nationals proved to be the end for the Ottawa Valley Attack. Brantford scored early and often on their way to an 11-0 mercy rule win. The Attack had left everything they had on the ďŹ eld during the previous 4 days and 8 games and the tank was empty. Atkinson-Jones and Meek had the only hits for the Attack in the game. The young ďŹ rst year Junior teams ďŹ rst National championship tournament ended with a fourth place ďŹ nish. Their six wins at Nationals showed they belonged there. Their only losses came against the 3 medal winners (BrantfordGold, Team BC-Silver and Saskatoon SynergyBronze). The team’s core group has 2 more years of eligibility in the Junior division so more possibilities are still out there for this team. The season is now complete having played 45 games and winning 38 and losing 7. Two tournament wins (Ancaster and Niagara Falls) a silver at the Tier I Junior Provincials and a 4th place ďŹ nish at the Nationals has provided a ton of memories for this dedicated team.

Discover the best of North Gower and Kars - gnomes included Emma Jackson

EMC news - Snaking up the long, wooded driveway off Mackey Road near North Gower, the Ruhland family property looks like an unassuming homestead. The old farmhouse and barn are mostly unadorned, and few trees or plants break up the lawns that connect the buildings. But step inside Margaret and Herman Ruhland’s home and a rich array of colours and textures await. Herman’s huge, bright paintings and collages cover many walls, and sculptures, ornaments and wall hangings fill in the gaps. Margaret’s textile and jewelry creations also make appearances here and there, although most of her work is hidden in her attic studio up the old staircase. Outside, the back patio is lush with mossy rocks and waterfalls designed by Herman. There’s no question his stone arrangements are another form of art. A Japanese Zen garden is

off to the left, and heaps of what others might call junk wait to be turned into largescale sculptures. Examples dot the property and lean against the back porch. Following the grassy path into the woods beyond, an enchanting gnome garden leads through the forest, and Herman’s brother Frits diligently works to perfect his miniature world while visiting from Holland. The Dutch couple immigrated to Nepean in 1959, and Herman, 78, worked for a landscaping company before the pair moved to their North Gower home. The couple is featured in the upcoming Discovery Tour through North Gower, Kars and Manotick on Saturday, Sept. 8 and Sunday, Sept. 9, and expects to welcome about 150 visitors to see their work and visit the gnome garden. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day visitors can travel to 15 different stops throughout the region to visit artists, farms and marketplaces to buy locally-made art and produce.



Marketing co-ordinator and Raku potter Colette Beardall, who will show her work in Beckett’s Landing, said the tour is meant to reconnect people to the products being made right here in the region. “It’s to introduce Ottawa to what artists and farmers are doing just a very short distance from Ottawa central,” Beardall said. “You don’t have to go to Ikea anymore. We’re trying to get away from that.” As many as 37 participants will show and sell their work at the 15 stops, which can be mapped at Beardall said the best part of the tour is being able to see the artists in their own space. “People want to see where you come from, what your roots are. People like to connect with their artist,” she said. At the Ruhland household, visitors will immediately sense the warmth and creativity that exudes from the pair, who have been married for 53 years. While Herman is the “fine

The enchanted forest was nearly ready, but Frits said it would be even better by Sept. 8 and 9. artist” in the family, “my art isn’t very fine,” he laughed. He has been painting and sculpting for decades, after getting a feel for canvas as a young man in Holland. In both mediums, Herman’s inspiration comes from the natural world. Much of his work features “abstract forms” that can be human-like or modeled after birds and animals. His sculptures often make use of “found objects” like old wagon wheels, farm equipment, small antiques and even animal bones he has collected over the years. Margaret was later getting into her craft, as she worked as an antique dealer with her daughter for 30 years. But in 2004 the seamstress, quilter and jeweller decided to take up her crafts in earnest. She now uses hand-woven and hand-dyed hemp made in small Asian villages to create “one-size-fits-all, very comfortable” eco-friendly jackets and blouses. She also makes a variety of jewelry, and recently has taken up manipulating

I love to make jewelry out of natural stones,” she said. Frits’s gnome garden will add an extra level of enchantment to the visitor experience. As they wander through the paths, brightly painted wood and stones twist in the wind from where they hang, and

carefully arranged toadstool rock formations capture the imagination.

Rideau Archives founder wins Diamond Jubilee medal Emma Jackson

“As with everything you do, you don’t do it alone. I’ve had a very good group of people working with me and they should be commended as much as me.� GEORGIE TUPPER


Georgie Tupper has won a Diamond Jubilee medal for her work with the Rideau Archives. Jubilee award earlier this spring from Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod. Both Tuppers received Golden Jubilee medals in 2002. The Diamond Jubilee award is being distributed to 60,000 extraordinary Canadians across the country in honour of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60-year reign. Local representatives and senators each have a certain number of medals they can award in their communities between February 2012 and February 2013.

After much research, she now knows the plot’s history back to 1793, and has immortalized it in stone on either side of her front door. Between her work with her archives, Tupper also raised two children, played an active role in the Kars Recreation Association and was a dedicated member of the OttawaCarleton Plowman’s Association. Tupper said she is humbled by the award, and extended its honour to those she has worked with throughout her long volunteering career. “As with everything you

do, you don’t do it alone. I’ve had a very good group of people working with me and they should be commended as much as me,â€? she said. Tupper laughed that she and her husband Bill Tupper, who was the ďŹ rst mayor of Rideau Township and is now the president of the Rideau Township Historical Society, “had no intention of ever getting involved in the community, other than coaching hockey and things.â€? Indeed, Tupper founded a ballet school in North Gower which she ran for 10 years, because she didn’t want to drive her daughter into the city for classes. “It just evolves,â€? she said. The Nova Scotia pair moved to Ottawa in 1958, and settled in their Kars home in August, 1968. Conscious of the fact that they were newcomers to a small, rural community, the couple made an effort to meet their neighbours, and got involved in the Kars Sesquicentennial Anniversary organizing committee in 1972. Afterward, committee members felt Bill would make a good councillor, and he sat on the last North Gower council. He was then put forward as a mayoral candidate for the new Rideau Township. Tupper said that pushed them into the community even more, and the couple worked hard to make connections between the amalgamated communities. Bill also won a Diamond


EMC news – Rideau Archives founding member Georgie Tupper received a Diamond Jubilee medal on Sunday, Aug.19 for her ongoing effort to preserve the region’s rich rural history. Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre presented the award during a Diamond Jubilee celebration at Dickinson House in Manotick. “Today I wish to recognize Mrs. Georgina Tupper, who has demonstrated her commitment to this community by founding the Rideau Township Historical Society and the Rideau Archives. Her work in this ďŹ eld has ensured that the history of the Rideau will be around for generations to come.â€? Tupper was a founding member of the Rideau Archives, which she helped set up in 1974 after North Gower and Marlborough Townships amalgamated. Since then the 79-year-old has been an active member in the archives, acting as chairperson and volunteer manager, researching and developing a policy and procedures manual for the archives – a ďŹ rst for any township – and digitalizing many records. She is an active researcher, and has contributed to projects for the archives and several books. She wrote Followin’ the Furrows: 150 Years of Competitive Plowing in Carleton

County, and conducted research for her friend and colleague Coral Lindsay’s book Kars on the Rideau. Her natural interest in the history around her has led to explore her own family’s genealogical background, and she has uncovered the history of the 160-year-old stone house she lives in on Second Line Road.

Motorists must be mindful as students return to class


hile our politicians talk about putting students first with controversial legislation proposals, we can all do our part for young people when motorists begin seeing a lot of yellow starting next week. Fleets of school buses will flood our streets as children return to elementary and high schools. Most schools welcome students back the day after Labour Day, Sept. 4, but the

French public and Catholic boards open a week earlier. The colour yellow in motorist’s language always translates to one word: caution. Motorists must keep their eyes open for children waiting on street corners. Kids will be kids, which usually means they are in constant motion. We must always remember the first rule of defensive driving: expect the unexpected.

The colour yellow in motorist’s language always translates to one word: caution. Children tend to offer a lot of unexpected behaviour, which occasionally involves a mad dash across the street chasing a ball or friend waiting at a bus stop. Drivers would do well to drive a little more slowly the first few weeks of September.

They might also want to reacquaint themselves with the rules of driving when approaching a stopped school bus with its lights flashing. The flashing lights mean cars must come to a halt to allow children to board the bus. It also allows children and

parents to safely cross the street. By law, traffic in both directions must stop anytime a school bus is stopped with its overhead alternating signal lights flashing. If the danger of hitting a child with your vehicle isn’t reason enough, failing to stop for a school bus can result in a $400 to $2,000 fine upon conviction and six demerit points given to a motorist’s driver’s license. And that’s only for a first

conviction. Each subsequent offence can result in fines ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 together with six demerit points and possible imprisonment up to six months. Staying alert while behind the wheel and being aware of the rules of the road governing school buses is everyone’s responsibility. We’re all winners if we educate ourselves about the rules of the road and school bus safety.


Maybe the mall is worth saving CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


e expect shock and dismay when a place like Westboro Sports closes – a family-owned business with 48 years of close connection to the community; or when the beloved Newport Restaurant announces that it will downsize and clear out of its historic location. But we don’t expect shock and dismay when a shopping centre passes. After all, we associate malls with chain ownership, chain food and with the squeezing out of local businesses. But look at what happened when the roof fell in on a shopping centre in the town of Elliott Lake, forcing the mall to close. The mall building contained 60 per cent of local businesses, as well as the library and some government offices. As reported in the Globe and Mail, the community is stunned and saddened. “People have no place to go,� said one local woman. “That was their favourite place to be. They liked to hang out there in the mall. That’s just how people were.� With all the sentimental attachment we have toward the small independent business of years gone by, we shouldn’t forget that it’s possible to get sentimental about shopping centres, too. After all, they have been with us for four or five decades. And for a lot of neighborhoods, not to mention smaller communities, the local shopping centre is the closest thing they have to a main street. Take a careful look the next time you’re in Carlingwood or Billings Bridge or St. Laurent or Westgate. People use those places for more than shopping. They meet their friends, they have lunch, they have coffee, they take power walks.

Mostly, they hang out. Older people hang out, teenagers hang out. You should never underestimate the importance of hanging out. Top-level hanging out enhances our quality of life. Sure, some of us wish the hanging out was in the open air. Some of us wish the open air was on open streets filled with locally-owned shops. But that doesn’t seem to be what has been happening since the first shopping centres were invented. Looking down the road a few years, when the current shopping centres wears out, we can anticipate a wave of nostalgia. “Remember when we used to park on the second deck and take the escalator to the Sports Experts?� people will say, a bit like what they say now about riding their bikes to the malt shop or, driving their large cars, powered by leaded gasoline, to the drive-in movie. Anything can be the subject of nostalgia. There was a movie a few years ago about a woman who pined for the lifestyle of East Berlin, before the wall came down. So it’s no surprise that people in the future will look fondly back on the mall, remembering when there were five jewelry stores, a tax place, a CD store, a video store, a book store. Remember CDs? Remember videos? Remember books? People may even wax nostalgic about the awful and inescapable music coming out of the ceiling. So perhaps the mall is worth saving after all. As Elliott Lake’s plight demonstrates, the mall’s importance grows in a cold climate. Since, despite everything, we still have a cold climate, it may be time to stop lamenting the mall. By coming to terms with it we have an opportunity to campaign for changes that will mall life more interesting. It goes without saying that more local stores and eating places would help, but the changes can go beyond that. Elliott Lake’s idea of a library in a mall is brilliant. Sunday markets in those vast parking lots might be popular. Small performance spaces and exhibit spaces for local artists and musicians would enhance the shopping centre experience and benefit the community. After all, if Tunney’s Pasture can be humanized, anything is possible.

Cornmeal muffins always pass taste test


hether your taste runs to a bowl of spicy chili or a steaming plate of beef stew, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enjoy the taste of these cornmeal mufďŹ ns. These are slightly sweet, moist and simple to make. You can ďŹ nd the cornmeal in the supermarket, usually in the section with the cooked cereals such as oatmeal. If you ďŹ nd the mufďŹ ns start to get a bit dry after a couple of days (if they last that long), just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll taste almost as fresh as if they just came out of the oven. This recipe makes a large batch, 12 to 16 mufďŹ ns, but they freeze well. I thaw a few and then reheat them in the toaster oven. CORNMEAL MUFFINS

In another bowl, mix the eggs, milk and oil. Pour this into the dry ingredients, and stir just until combined. Spoon the batter into mufďŹ n cups, ďŹ lling them about three-quarters full. Bake at 400 F (205 C) for about 15 minutes. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done, insert a toothpick in the centre of a mufďŹ n near the middle of the pan. If the toothpick comes out clean, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done. Let the mufďŹ ns sit in the pan for ďŹ ve minutes, then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to remove them without having them break apart.

Prince of Wales a cycling nightmare for Ottawa South riders Re: Cycling the Capital series, published Aug. 9 and Aug. 16 dangerous lumpy shoulder. The southbound shoulder is in worse shape than the northbound one. Almost all my flat tires are along this stretch of road annually. This route is used by numerous commuters during the week. It is also heavily used by weekend cycling groups heading south to the countryside. Before investing another fortune creating cycle lanes elsewhere in the city, those of us who use this part of Prince of Wales would greatly appreciate any improvements the

city can offer for our safety. Educating motorists with respect to sharing the road with cyclists rather than trying to run them off the road or yelling at them would be much appreciated. Motorists need to understand that in some stretches of road, the cyclist has no option but to ride along the side white line because the condition of the shoulder does not safely permit cycling. And running cyclists off the road by passing too close risks injury and causes flat tires. My second cycling com-

muter pet peeve relates to the Laurier bike lanes being full of pedestrians who suddenly step into the lane to jaywalk across the street expecting that a cyclist can come to a sudden stop, and skateboarders using the bike lanes, side by side and not permitting cyclists to pass. Thanks for listening. I hope to see some improvements before I retire or get hit by a motorist. PEGGY BAXTER MANOTICK

Jack Layton to be honoured at Friends for Peace Day


decorate for less!




EMC news - On the 10th anniversary of Friends for Peace Day, MP Olivia Chow will receive a posthumous Peace Award on behalf of her late husband Jack Layton. Peace awards are given annually to outstanding citizens. Orkidstra have commissioned composer James Wright to create a song from Jack Layton’s letter to the nation. Orkidstra will open the afternoon program on Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. and will sing this tribute to Layton. Friends for Peace Day will be celebrated at Jean Pigott Place at Ottawa’s city hall. It’s a day to celebrate the consciousness of peace, social justice and planetary care rather than bemoan their scarcity. There will be music, speeches, dancing, food and a chance to learn and connect. Donations fund “peace grants” to organizations making a difference. In Ottawa, the grants include the Multi-Faith Housing Initiative, the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre, Child Haven International, Peace Camp Ottawa and Physicians for Global Survival. Globally, there are projects supported in Africa, India and Nepal. The morning onstage program starts at 11a.m. with a piper and walkers for peace, Metis welcome and the Dandelion Dance Company There is no admission fee and donations will be accepted.

Total Home Consignment offers sofas, bedroom sets, kitchen sets, dining room sets, patio sets, coffee and end tables, wall units, rugs, and even exercise equipment for great prices. Abrams explains that when a used product comes into the store it starts at 50 to 60 per cent of the price of what the equivalent product would sell for new. Every 15 days the price is dropped 10 per cent until the item is sold. “When the item first comes in, it’s a great deal but if you’re patient and you’re lucky more than anything else you can get an even better deal,” says Abrams. However, he cautions that this approach can result in disappointment when a piece of furniture is snapped up by another savvy customer. At Total Home Consignment you can find antiques and collectables but also brand new furniture. As Abrams put it, “there are treasures here to be found.” Total Home Consignment is located at 1860 Bank St, Uniit 4 near the corner of Bank St. and Walkley Rd. behind the Beer Store. Hours 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and now open Sundays 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. (closed Mondays).

Dear editor: My commute is from Manotick to downtown Ottawa: Slater Street, a 60 kilometre roundtrip. I cycle six to seven months per year depending on the weather. I have been a cycle commuter for over 40 years, initially in Montreal and now in Ottawa for 27 years. My route takes me along Rideau Valley Drive to Highway 16 (Prince of Wales Drive), along 16 North, around Dows Lake, onto the Driveway to the segregated bike lanes on Laurier, then one block on Bank to Slater. My cycle pet peeve is the condition of Prince of Wales from Merivale through Fallowfield, both north and southbound. This fragment of the road has a very unsafe shoulder of mud, gravel, and potholes. There is a narrow paved portion just outside the white line that is cracked, crumbling, and with potholes as well. Along this area, motorists are particularly disrespectful of cyclists, passing too fast, very close, and frequently leaning on their horns and shouting at the cyclists. Trucks are the worst offenders. The cyclist has nowhere to escape other than onto the

Total Home Consignment offers a unique shopping experience unlike that of your run-of-the-mill furniture store. The furniture consignment store has the layout of a furniture store with 8,000 sq. ft. of spacious floor space, combined with the low prices and unique finds of a consignment store. “They love the concept and they didn’t realize there was anything like us out there,” says Richard Abrams, who owns the store with his wife Barb, of the reactions of his customers. “When they’re coming in here they’re not going to find the same old same old from furniture store to furniture store. It’s a totally different look and everything’s unique. It’s ‘one onlys’ and things that you can’t find other places.” Total Home Consignment is a great place to find unique gifts for friends and family. The furniture and home accessories are sourced from people looking to down size, estate sales, business closings, bankruptcies, and inventory liquidations. The store also gets model home furnishings from seven of Ottawa’s finest home builders. There’s no better time than now to come into the store as they’ve received truck loads of model furniture from Minto. Abrams says the store has a high standard of what furniture they will accept, which means it can be sold as is. For those on a budget,

But survive it did and it was soon obvious it was not going to be at all like the other chickens. I could see that as it grew it was not going to have much in the way of feathers. Father said that happened sometimes. A cull, he called it. I took to that little chicken and it to me, and we were soon inseparable. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like a chicken and it certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound like one. While the others chirped, this one squawked. My brothers made fun of the little bare chicken with nothing more than a bit of fuzz around its tail end and a few scraggly hairs at its neck. The rest of its body was completely bare and pink. As the summer wore on and the warm days got chilly, I grew increasingly concerned about Squeaky. It was often pushed aside by the other chickens and I would find it huddled by itself in the coop trying to keep warm. I begged Mother to let me bring it in the house at night. Mother said farm animals belonged in the barn, chickens in the chicken coop. After many tears and promises to scrub the floor on my hands and knees, Mother finally agreed that I could bring Squeaky into the house to sleep. I emptied a box I found in the drive

shed, put one of my dollsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blankets in it and situated Squeaky and the box behind the Findlay Oval. She was asleep with that bare head tucked under an equally bare wing, the picture of perfect chicken contentment. For the first time I would sleep assured that my pet chicken was warm and safe. As soon as Mother blew out the coal oil lamp and the kitchen was turned to black, loud squawks could be heard right through the house. I could hear Father jumping out of bed, while Audrey and I sat bolt upright. I flew downstairs in the dark just as Father was lighting the lamp and peering into the box behind the stove. There was Squeaky with her head in the air and her mouth letting out the most outrageous roars I ever heard come out of a chicken. Mother said she was to be taken right out to the coop. I wailed that it was the middle of the night and Squeaky would be frightened to death. That night it was Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision that the chicken could stay upstairs beside my bed, but that it would be the last night it would be sleeping anyplace but in the henhouse. I was sure if it had to spend one more night out in that drafty place it would surely freeze to death. It was my very clever sister Audrey who had the perfect solution. She said not to worry - she would take care of the situation. The morning broke cold and windy for a late

summer day. When I leaned out of bed Squeaky was still fast asleep, just as I had left her. Audrey headed right for the box of doll clothes. She took out a tiny sweater I used on my China doll. She forced Squeakyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legs into the arm holes and buttoned the sweater across its bare breast. It fit her like a glove and once she had shaken her legs a few times, resigned herself to her new clothes. We walked right out with the chicken in my dollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweater and over to the coop. When Audrey put her down she went scurrying into the crowd demanding her share. Just before it got dark, Audrey and I went out to take a look. There was Squeaky apart from the rest of the chickens, fast asleep in her bright red and yellow hand knit sweater. Emerson said the coloured sweater would put off the other hens from laying eggs. Audrey said to pay him no attention. My featherless chicken kept growing into larger sweaters. I dreaded the day when she would join the others in the back of the old Model T Ford to be traded for sugar and flour. But Father and Mother decided, because she was such an odd looking bird, she would likely be as tough as blazes. Squeaky was allowed to live out her life naturally to my great relief. She was bare in the warm weather, and when it got cold, she was cozily wrapped in a dollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sweater.

Heel and Wheel for Winchester Hospital this September Emma Jackson

EMC news – On foot or by bike, the Winchester hospital foundation is asking Ottawa South to get active for their local cancer care program. The new Heel and Wheel event on Saturday, Sept. 8 will support the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation’s cancer fund as teams walk and cycle to the hospital from seven different starting points around the region. The event will end with a huge, family-friendly street party near the hospital with kids’ activities and a free barbecue. Event organizer Christina Enright with the hospital foundation said the event evolved from a request from the Winchester Hospital Heelers to create a local, family-friendly event for the hospital. The fundraising group had previously fundraised for the Weekend to End Breast Cancer with a deal that 75 per cent of their funds went back to the hospital. After it ended they wanted to continue the momentum they had created in the community. The hospital foundation took their request and expanded it to a huge community

event that connects all the villages in the hospital’s coverage area, from Greely down to Morrisburg, Enright said. Walkers and cyclists can register to start at one of seven starting locations: Greely, Osgoode, Russell, Crysler, Finch, Morrisburg or South Mountain. Walkers will start at 8 a.m. for their approximately 25 kilometre journey, and cyclists will begin at 2 p.m. Everyone will convene at the hospital around 4 p.m. for the barbecue, live entertainment and kids’ events such as face painting, balloon twisting and games. Enright said they purposely chose to have so many starting locations to encourage participation from across the region. “When people do an event like this they want to feel like they’re doing it in their home community,” she said. “People might have felt excluded, so we opened it up to the seven points and all the communities are represented.” She said that some starting points may be merged with others if there aren’t enough registrants, just to keep the volunteer-based event efficient. Already there are about 65 participants signed up, and

$37,000 has been raised online. That doesn’t count all the petty cash that will come in from registrants’ yard sales and other creative methods participants used to meet their fundraising requirements. Each adult must raise $500 to participate, and each child must raise $100. For families, every subsequent adult or child only has to raise half that amount. While it may seem steep, Enright said there are lots of creative ways to raise the money. She said it was more difficult this year because it is the inaugural event and it took time to get the word out. However the second annual event will give people an entire year to raise the funds. Enright said the biggest goal for the foundation this year is making sure people have a great time, so they come out again in 2013 – and bring friends. “My goal is that everyone has an excellent, positive experience, that they feel well supported and appreciated for what they’re doing and proud of their achievements and that everyone goes away wanting to do it again,” she said.

Walking Wounded team captain Joanne Giles and fellow team member Sally Burnet show off medals from the Big Sur 21 Miler in California in May, 2012. Their team hopes to raise $2,500 for the Heel and Wheel event.

South Carleton High School celebrates 60 years John Curry

The Conservative Government is focused on keeping our communities safe and prosperous while aligning itself with the interests of Canadian families. With the rapid population growth in Nepean-Carleton, it is more important than ever to promote community organizations that take care of our families and those in need. Harvest House, located on Ramsayville Road in Ottawa’s Greenbelt, is one such organization. Serving men between the ages of sixteen and thirty, Harvest House is focused on rehabilitating young men who suffer from addiction in order to reintegrate them as productive members of society. Relying on emotional and financial support from the community, this professional facility houses, teaches, trains and mentors over fifty young men at once through a policy of abstinence and faith. The Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind (CGDB) has their National Training Centre located in Manotick. This is another valued community organization in our riding that has far-reaching influence. The National Training Centre provides assistance to visually impaired individuals from across Canada. It relies on dedicated volunteers as well as donations received from individuals, corporations, service clubs, foundations and fundraising events. As an organization entirely separate from the Ottawa Food Bank, the Barrhaven Food Cupboard cares for local families in need throughout the year. It is run by volunteers through the Barrhaven United Church and survives entirely on the assistance of caring members of the community for cash or food donations. The Food Cupboard recently announced that, due to a thirty percent increase in demand from last year, they worry they may not be able to meet further demand. Recognized as the only working industrial heritage site within the boundaries of the City of Ottawa, Watson’s Mill is revered as an irreplaceable element of Manotick’s history. Thousands of tourists and residents from the Ottawa area have enjoyed this historic site, which brings both character and commerce to this unique and treasured region. The Mill itself, however, is in great need of repair. The exterior surface of the structure is compromised and a new roof is needed. Local events have been held to help fundraise, but more is still needed. Since the 1970’s, the obesity rate in Canada has more than doubled, a ratio that is even more pronounced in our children. The Greco Foundation to Fight Obesity in Children is an integral community program promoting health and prosperity among those who are most vulnerable to unhealthy lifestyles. This charity has donated over $40,000 worth of fitness equipment, coaching services and nutritional consultations to families and to non-profit organizations working with low income families. The Foundation has also contributed $35,000 to help rebuild school play structures in our communities. While I have listed only five organizations above, there are many other groups deserving your help. In this tough global economic climate, it is important that we help each other out and give back to our communities. Pierre Poilievre MP for Nepean-Carleton


South Carleton High School opened in September 1952, and will celebrate its 60th anniversary this year. the educational benefits of a larger school with a gymnasium and larger staff but also the social and personal benefits of making friends with other young people from areas as separate as South March, Carp, Manotick and Metcalfe. For many, this would be the beginning of an association with South Carleton which would last for decades. Following the opening of the new centralized $460,000 high school facility in September 1952, the next big event was the school’s official opening which was held on Wednesday, Dec. 3, 1952 in the school’s auditorium. The program included selections by the Ottawa Technical School Band, a “drill and dance” by a South Carleton contingent of girls, and musical selections by the SCHS Glee Club. The opening ceremonies were such a momentous occasion that they were broadcast over radio station CFRA of Ottawa. About 1,000 people attend-

ed the event, with about 600 crowding into the school auditorium while the rest listened to the speeches in classrooms by means of the school’s intercom system. The South Carleton High School crest, which has been used throughout the school’s life, actually pre-dates the building of the school and goes back to the second year of existence of the South Carleton High School District. It was in 1949 that Bevis Dewar of Kenmore, a student at the Manotick Continuation School, designed the crest which is a wreath around the torch of learning, with the inspection South Carleton High School (initially it was South Carleton High School District) placed in the form of two arches across the torch. The school’s motto “Pro Scientia Luce Vitae” which means “For Knowledge the Light of Life” is also on the crest. From its beginning with 263 students, South Carleton started to grow, reflecting the beginnings of suburban growth

Local charities need your help

EMC news - This September marks 60 full years since South Carleton first opened its doors to the area’s high school students. South Carleton High School in Richmond opened in September 1952, with 263 students and 13 teachers, all under the guidance of first principal W.W. (Bill) Powell. Its opening marked a huge step forward for secondary school education in the expansive rural area of Carleton County. High school education until then had been provided in the classrooms of existing continuation schools, which consisted of a couple of classrooms in the local elementary schools. These had existed for years but following the Second World War, there began a drive in Carleton County for a high school district. South Carleton High School District was formed January 1, 1948 and included the existing continuation schools in Manotick, Carp, Kars, Kenmore, North Gower, Metcalfe and Richmond. This was, in effect, the first far-flung amalgamation of school administrations that took place in Carleton County. However the existing continuation schools were used by the united administration. At the time, it was not known where the site for the new centralized high school facility would be. But within five years of its formation, the South Carleton High School District was able to open what was then an ultra-modern centralized high school facility in Richmond. It brought students not only

which was beginning to strike the area in villages such as Richmond and Stittsville. By September 1958, enrolment at the school had grown to 544, challenging the capacity of the school which at that time stood at 550 including a new addition. In 1959, an addition was approved by the South Carleton High School Board but its construction was delayed for several months, finally receiving the approval of the Ontario Department of Education in May of 1959. The provincial approval came only after senior officials of the Department of Education’s Secondary School Branch heard a delegation from the Manotick District Association requesting that the addition be delayed pending further investigation. An alternative suggestion was the construction of a second high school at Manotick. However, this suggestion was turned down as not being in the best interests of the South Carleton High School District as a whole. South Carleton enrolment continued to grow, however, and in November 1961 it had reached 750 students. It was expected that South Carleton High School, as a composite school, would reach an enrolment of 1,100 students by 1963 due to growth in the school’s catchment area. An addition was completed in the fall of 1962. Another expansion took place in 1965. South Carleton was under construction again in 1974, but not as a result of enrolment. On Oct. 9 a fire gutted the school’s cafeteria and kitchen, making the double gym unusable. After a brief interruption of a few days, school life continued that year, with the Carleton Board of Education taking action to repair the damage. Today, the school has more than 1,300 students and 84 staff. “Though many things about South Carleton HS have been transformed by time, our commitment to excellence continues to endure steadfast into the twenty-first century,” the school’s website says.

"UUFOUJPO BACK-to-SCHOOL 'BMM3FHJTUSBUJPO Teaching kids to be green trip to a working farm or a recycling center can teach important lessons about sustainability and conservation.

Teaching children about the ways they can protect the planet or make simple changes to decrease their carbon footprints now may pave the way for more informed adults later, and children can discover the benefits of giving back rather than taking more.

* Shop secondhand. Children and toys go hand-in-hand. However, what was once the latest and greatest toy can quickly become overshadowed by something new tomorrow. Explain the benefits of getting gently used toys, clothing and books instead of purchasing them new. Doing so reduces the reliance on the production of new things, cuts down on shipping and also saves money. Encourage kids to set up a toy swap where they pass on

* Take a trip. Children are visual creatures and often learn the best lessons by seeing what something is all about. A day

toys they no longer find interesting to others who can enjoy them. * Lead by example. When installing new LED bulbs or switching out an appliance for an Energy Star-rated model, explain to children why this is being done. Children learn quickly and can grasp abstract ideas more easily than adults may think. They soon may catch on and make their own green changes, such as turning off lights when not in rooms, unplugging game chargers when not in use or using less water while brushing teeth before bed.

It’s no secret that playing individual and team sports can help children develop social skills and raise self-esteem. There are several classes offered through Ottawa’s Parks Recreation and Cultural Services department that offer these benefits and more for any child looking to learn skills for life.

There is a variety of sports options for adults and children alike through City-wide Sports. Girls ‘n Women and Sport run physical activity programs that promote fun, friendship, skill development, confidence building and fair play values while learning to play in a team setting.

More than sports

For some, the journey to higher selfesteem begins and ends with martial arts. You can register for a variety of martial arts classes, from the more familiar practices such as Karate and Judo, to the lesser known ones such as Kendo, Capoeira and Aikido Yoseikan. In addition to confidence, martial arts is known to promote physical fitness, discipline, respect and self control. Participating in sports and exercise can create a supportive environment that acknowledges a child’s skill development and provide positive social relationships with teammates and coaches. Consider ball hockey, basketball or the Saturday morning sports club for a unique team experience.

If you are looking for affordable, flexible meeting options or sporting venues, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board has plenty of choices.

Volunteering At the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa Making a difference Volunteering is defined as the act of working on behalf of others without financial or material gain. At the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa, volunteers are described as individuals helping to build a better community through the generosity of their time, their energy and their skills. Our volunteers are fundamental and provide a vital link in the delivery of services to children in our community. Volunteering at the CAS There are several reasons why you may be interested in volunteering. It may be a means of exploring new challenges or discovering new career options. You may be looking to develop interpersonal skills or gain self-confidence. Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people and through their experiences and your own, you may gain a better understanding of the people and organizations in our community. That being said, to many, the greatest satisfaction in volunteering at the CAS, is knowing they have made a difference in the life of a child or youth. From all walks of life Our volunteers are residents of our community who chose to give their time. They are men and women over the age of 18, single or partnered and represent diverse cultural, racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Our volunteers are from all walks of life, but they share a common goal: improving the life of a child or youth. Volunteer opportunities With back-to-school season upon us, our biggest opportunity is becoming a volunteer driver. These individuals assist with school drives, in the morning and afternoons, but also bring children and youth from foster homes to scheduled appointments. “Volunteering give me a sense of worthwhile. It doesn’t feel like work and I’m able to give something back - it’s like a breath of fresh air” – Richard M. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer driver or tutor, we will be hosting an orientation session on September 5th, 2012 at 6:00 pm. Remember, the caring gift of your time assists the Society in its efforts to keep the children and youth of our community safe and secure.

EMC news - Millions and millions of travelers make the 6,000 kilometre journey from Canada to Mexico each year, but only a small fraction are human. The rest consist of creatures seeking shelter from Canada’s harsh winters, including the monarch butterfly. A film documenting the monarch’s journey is currently on display at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. In 2005, Mexican filmmaker and pilot Francisco Gutiérrez followed the monarch butterflies migration from Canada to Mexico. The 72-day flight was captured in photographs and in On the Trail of the Monarch Butterfly, which has been on

Kerry-Leigh Burchill brought her friend, Jenn Orman, as an outing to celebrate Orman’s 40th birthday. “I just thought it would be a great night,” Burchill said. “I love the fact that the museum has incorporated art into their collection.

Orman and Burchill were both wowed by the images as they walked through the exhibit. The museum’s director, Stephen Quick said the exhibit truly showed what an incredible journey Gutiérrez had taken and was happy the museum had the opportunity to share the filmmaker’s accomplishments with the rest of Canada. The ambassador said there are a number of butterfly sanctuaries in Mexico where the insects stay when they make it to their destination. “Next time you travel to Mexico, ask one of the hotel’s staff to take you to one of those sanctuaries, so you can see for yourself,” Barrio Terrazas said. The ambassador also credited the butterflies as a symbol of the strong relationship the two countries have. The exhibit will be on display until Sept. 3.

Riding high in Ottawa On Aug. 24 OC Transpo revealed one of the 75 new double-decker buses that will begin to hit the road in October. The buses can hold 90 people and will replace 70-person articulated buses on express and high-capacity routes. Route 35 in Orléans, Route 61 in Kanata and Route 77 in Barrhaven will be the first to get the new buses. These double deckers are about 30 centimetres shorter than the three test double deckers, so they can fit under all bridges in the city. That means the city will spend $72.1 million to buy the buses – $9.7 million less than anticipated, because no changes to bridges need to be made. Using double deckers will save $8.1 million a year beginning next April, when all the new buses are available for service.

Canada Post adds honorary Canadian hero EMC news - Recognition of the first honorary Canadian citizen – a Swedish architect and diplomat who helped save the lives of thousands of Hungarian Jews during the Second World War – has been added to Canada Post’s 2013 stamp program. Raoul Wallenberg, who would have turned 100 on Aug. 4, was posthumously bestowed honorary citizenship on Jan. 17, 1985. Canada Post will release a stamp on Jan. 17 to highlight Wallenberg’s courage. After leading the mission that saved nearly 100,000


Fiddling around

Jews in Nazi-occupied Hungary, Wallenberg was arrested by the Soviet government on Jan. 17, 1945 and is believed to have died in captivity two years later at the age of 34. During the Second World war, Wallenberg issued protective passes for Hungarian Jews. He also declared a number of sites in Budapest as Swedish territory, where Jews could seek refuge. The anniversary of his capture – and honorary citizenship – has become an annual tribute in Canada on what is known as Raoul Wallenberg Day.

He is honoured throughout the country in the form of memorials, monuments and parks. In addition to Canada, Wallenberg also holds honorary citizenship in many other countries, including Hungary, the United States and Israel. Wallenberg has also been honoured on stamps from around the world, including Sweden, Hungary, the U.S., Australia and Argentina. The 2013 stamp program lineup will include a variety of topics, including historical figures, artists and significant anniversaries.

Gumby is a neutered male, fawn tabby and white Domestic Shorthair cat who is two-and-a-half years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on July 14, and is quite the social butterfly! His instant purr makes sure is happiness is contagious. Gumby has a soft, chatty chirp when he greets his friends. He gets along well with other cats if he’s allowed to take his time to get to know them.Gumby likes to keep all four on the floor and prefers to give affection on his own terms; he prefers not to be picked up. He needs an owner and family who understand he’s a sensitive fellow with a few spots, such as his tummy, where he does not like being touched.

Idra is a spayed female, tricolor Siberian Husky mix that is about three years old. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on July 25, but is now available for adoption. Idra loves to explore! She is looking for an active family who will bring her along on lots of fun, outdoor activities. She is an independent gal who likes having some alone time once in a while.She gets along well with children eight years and older who won’t be intimidated by her tendency to jump up. Her new family will need to remind her to keep her paws on the ground when she gets excited. Idra is a smart girl and knows her basic commands and is eager to learn more. Obedience training would help her bond with her new family and help instil proper manners. She needs an owner familiar with her breed and willing to put the time and effort into meeting her exercise and training requirements. For more information on these or other pets currently available for adoption through the Ottawa Humane Society, please contact 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit

THE PRICE OF ADOPTION At first this may seem like a great idea: free pets means more families will be able to afford a homeless animal. However, having a pet costs money. A free kitten from a friend of a friend is hard to resist. However, that kitten needs to be health checked by your veterinarian, dewormed, vaccinated, and spayed. A free puppy from the newspaper or an online ad needs the same. How much are you really saving? The year one initial costs sterilization, vaccination, deworming, etc. will cost more than $600 for a kitten, plus approximately $900 in yearly ongoing costs that include food, litter, grooming and boarding. Sadly, many people are uninformed of these costs and many “free” animals end up being surrendered to the humane society. In fact, more than 7,000 cats end up at the Ot-

tawa Humane Society every year. Thirty-five percent of them are believed to have been acquired either from a friend or relative or from some form of “free to good home.”

lates into much needed information about the dog in order to make the best possible match between the potential adopter and the canine, for a successful and permanent placement.

At the OHS, a health check, initial deworming and vaccination, sterilization (spay or neuter) a permanent microchip identification and pet insurance for 6 weeks is included in the dog and cat adoption fees. The average cost of canine sterilization at a vet clinic is $350.00 while feline sterilization costs and average of $250.00. In the end, adopting a pet from the OHS offers great savings!

All animals receive a routine health check by OHS veterinary staff prior to adoption. A veterinarian will examine all animals requiring a diagnosis or prescription All animals receive medication for the most common internal parasites. Ear mites are common in cats; OHS cats’ ears are swabbed and then examined under the microscope. If the swab is positive for ear mites, the ears will be cleaned and the animal will be treated.

The OHS adoption prices are: $290 for dogs older than six months, $350 for puppies and small breeds; $170 for cats older than six months, $225 for kittens. It’s the best deal around! OHS dogs receive a temperament assessment prior to being placed for adoption. This trans-

The OHS receives all animals, whether healthy or sick. Therefore, we often have cases of Upper Respiratory Infection (a common yet very contagious cat cold). These animals must then be placed through our foster program for two or three weeks on average, often with

The first vaccination is given and if the animal is within our system for any extended period of time, they will receive a booster (second vaccination). All animals are implanted with a microchip (a permanent form of identification) prior to being adopted, and are automatically enrolled with pet insurance for six weeks of free coverage, effective 48 hours post-adoption.

EMC news – A group of Progressive Conservative MPPs joined Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod in North Gower on Aug. 21 to oppose the Ontario government’s commitment to wind power in Ontario. A small group of North Gower residents have been fighting a Prowind proposal to build 10 industrial wind turbines just outside the village boundaries, and PC energy critic Vic Fedeli and MPPs Bob Bailey and Randy Pettapiece took time from the Association of Municipalities Ontario conference in Ottawa to show their solidarity. Fedeli did most of the talking at the brief event at the

Rideau Township Archives on North Gower’s main street. He said the McGuinty government’s plan to bring green energy into the province is failing. “The government’s dream of bringing green energy was forced on Ontario by overpaying for FIT (the feed-in tariff program) and guaranteeing to buy the power whenever it’s made, which is usually at night,” he told a small gathering of residents. “And they stripped municipalities of their decision-making power.” He said the PC party would like to reverse those three elements of the Green Energy Act, so that residents can have more power to decide what energy projects are built in their communities. “When you want green en-

ergy in your community, (municipalities can ask) is it in a willing host community, do we need the power and is it at a price we can afford,” Fedeli said.

“The government’s dream of bringing green energy was forced on Ontario by overpaying for FIT and guaranteeing to buy the power whenever it’s made.” VIC FEDELI, PC ENERGY CRITIC

The party is also asking to put all proposed wind projects in the province on hold until a federal study on the health ef-

fects of wind turbines is completed. Gary Thomas, owner of Thomas Tree Farm on McCordick Road, said his house and farm will be within one kilometre of “four or five” turbines planned for the area. He said he’s done some basic calculations and thinks that from about December to February he will experience shadows from the turbines in the afternoons. “It would drive you crazy. I couldn’t live there, and we’ve been here for 32 years,” said his wife Ruth Thomas. Thomas said he’s concerned that it will ruin his oldfashioned Christmas tree cutting events. “With the turbines across the road, I don’t know how old-fashioned it will be,” he said.

Passing on the family farm will become difficult as well, because his son’s family will likely refuse to come because of health concerns. Thomas said he wishes he could be more supportive of such an initiative. “If they were of any benefit, it would be a different story,” he said. The Conservatives have long lambasted the McGuinty government for their commitment to wind power, claiming that turbines are inefficient and less green than traditional sources of power such as hydro. Fedeli said he wants the government to focus on retrofitting existing dams and hydro plants to harness water energy, which he said would be more environmentally-friendly and more cost-effective.
