Manotick falls short on accessibility

News – A Manotick man wants to bring his village up to the global accessibility standards he’s used to. Don MacLaurin grew up in Manotick but has lived in Singapore, several parts of the United States and Guelph, Ont. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1996, and has been using a wheelchair to get around since the early 2000s. He returned from Singapore to his family home on Long Island about 18 months ago, and he said he was disappointed to see how far behind Manotick is in terms of accessibility. “I’ve never lived anywhere like this,” he said. “I like to go places in my scooter, but what I find now is I stay home. The measuring stick is ‘will the pain be worth it.’” MacLaurin said places like Singapore and the U.S. have made accessible infrastructure a priority. But in Manotick, MacLaurin said he’s hard-pressed to find a route into the village


core that isn’t dangerous or riddled with obstacles like crumbling concrete, potholes or buckled pavement. He said the village lacks cycling and pedestrian infrastructure like paved shoulders, bike paths and sidewalks - and the proper links between all of them to make them useful. There’s no safe way in or out of the village except by car, he added. While MacLaurin can drive, he prefers to be on his scooter. But the village streets make that difficult, he said. Bridge Street, MacLaurin’s most direct route into the village, lacks continuous sidewalks from end to end, and the cycling lanes disappear halfway across, he said. Manotick Main Street does not have enough continuously paved shoulder to get him down to the fire station or beyond, and anywhere paved shoulders do exist they’re not linked to anything. “How come we have thirdworld transportation infrastructure in a community like this,” he asked. “It just boggles the mind.” Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said he is aware of MacLaurin’s situation – and that of others with mobility issues in the village - but he said tight budgets mean residents have to be patient. “Any time we do a resurfacing of rural roads, we always look for opportunities to widen shoulders to make it more accessible,” he said.

Undead bring haunted mill to life A zombie and a witch – known as Cam Trueman and Kris Schulz in their earthly lives – rise from the grave at Watson’s Mill on Oct. 24. The Manotick mill has long been rumoured to be haunted, but it was evidently true over the weekend of Oct. 26 as zombies, witches and chainsaw-wielding madmen overtook Dickinson Square for three nights of haunting. Inside the mill, witches cackled around a glowing, green cauldron and zombies reached for victims’ hair. Mad scientists chopped up a body while a dinner party of undead dined on gourmet brains. The haunted house was staffed by more than 40 volunteers each night, including an army of youth from neighbouring high schools. The weekend was a fundraiser for Watson’s Mill, and all proceeds will go towards programming.

Legion offers computer skills for seniors Emma Jackson


Mountain of money Metcalfe Public School students Emma Lee, left, Kate McEwen and Brawley Wallace-Parekh take advantage of a huge pile of donated clothing on Oct. 23. The school council was asking for clothing donations as part of Bag 2 School, a fundraising scheme that gives schools $200 for every tonne of used clothes collected. Organizer Christine Lee said the project coincided with waste reduction week. Proceeds will be used to buy French books for the school’s library.

News - Laptops, smartphones, iPads and the Internet: the futuristic gadgets of James Bond films are becoming a modern reality, but some seniors are being left behind. The Osgoode legion is hoping to change that. Two legion volunteers now offer free, at-home computer lessons for seniors who want to be able to send emails, make documents and use the Internet. Gail Burgess said the program is meant to help seniors keep in touch with loved ones and feel connected if they can’t get out of the house. And with the cold weather creeping in, the timing couldn’t be better. “Most seniors are house-ridden in the winter time,” Burgess said. “The Internet gives them the chance to reach out and connect or to explore or research any topics of interest to them. This is entertainment in itself. So offering to help them make better use of their computers is helping their health

and happiness in the community.” Burgess and her fellow volunteer Lee Carey came up with the idea this summer. Since the legion doesn’t have Wi-Fi in the building, the program is being offered one-on-one in clients’ homes rather than in a classroom setting. So far Burgess and Carey have worked with two people, and another client is waiting to book an appointment. The 90-minute lessons start with the basics. The client will learn how to work with their email account, including adding and saving attachments, blind copying and carbon copying recipients, forwarding emails, organizing their inbox and creating rules. They can also learn how to organize documents on their computer. Creating folders and subfolders are on the curriculum, as well as filing photos and scanning a document. Seniors can also get a handle on surfing the Internet. Burgess and Carey will give them a list of useful sites (City of Ottawa, weather, media

outlets and help sites) and show them how to search for information, download content and save favourites. “I try to keep it so I don’t throw too much at them at once,” said Burgess, who works as a business analyst for new computer systems for the RCMP. “If they feel overpowered they shrink back. I want to give them enough to get started.” Burgess said the lessons are free to seniors who live in Osgoode Township, the Manotick area and Kemptville. They will take their services outside of that area, but may charge a small fee to support travel costs. The money would go back to the legion. Burgess said the program has already garnered some interest in the Osgoode and Manotick areas. “In a sense it’s a bit of a pilot, but we haven’t put an end date on it,” she said. “If it takes off we’ll see if we can get more volunteers to help out.” For more information or to book an appointment, call Burgess at 613-8214409.

Vernon cenotaph gets a makeover

News - Vernon’s memorial to fallen soldiers has a more prominent place in the community thanks to volunteer efforts. The Osgoode Township Historical Society took on the project as part of a larger landscaping plan to revamp the museum grounds and add a heritage garden. With the help of local businesses, the Osgoode Legion and MP Pierre Poilievre, the cenotaph has been moved away from the museum building to make it a more prominent feature on the property. “The cenotaph was stuck in a corner, backed up against the museum,” said Coreen Atkins-Sheldrick, an Osgoode legion volunteer. Now the stone now faces the museum’s driveway, and is flanked by three flagpoles made by museum president Gary Briggs. With financial assistance from the legion and Poilievre’s office – some funds were leftover from Metcalfe’s

cenotaph project last year – the stone has been cleaned and relocated to its new foundation. Interlocking brick has also been added around the base. “It’s looking very impressive,” Atkins-Sheldrick said. She said she plans to plant a number of tulip bulbs around the cenotaph in honour of the many Dutch immigrants who settled in the area after the Second World War. The cenotaph work has been completed just in time for the village’s Remembrance Day service on Nov. 2, which will also serve as a rededication ceremony. The service begins at 11 a.m. and will include a musical performance from the junior choir at Castor Valley Elementary School. HERITAGE MAKEOVER

Museum staff began implementing a heritage garden plan this summer and the board of directors said “significant progress has been made” so far. “It’s been extremely gratifying to see how many people volunteered

their time and how many local businesses were ready to contribute to our project,” said president Gary Briggs in a statement. “Anyone driving down Bank Street can see the progress we have made this year.” According to the board, the priority for summer 2013 was laying out the heritage school garden facing Bank. Over the course of the season the 10,000-square foot (930-square metre) garden was surveyed and a network of stone dust paths were laid out. A central flower bed and a cedar hedge windbreak were planted and volunteers erected a windmill tower. A test plot of vegetables was planted in August, and 40 children helped eat the produce during the museum’s Inquiring Minds program discussing food production in October. The full garden will be planted with vegetables, perennial fruit bushes and flowers in the spring of 2014. Plans are already underway for next year. The technology department at Osgoode Township High School has agreed to get a senior

and do some weeding or harvesting. A heritage orchard will also be laid out and planted in 2014. “We hope more people will join us on this exciting project in the next year,” Briggs said. “We have an activity for every kind of volunteer, whatever their interest and energy level.”

What’s in the budget for your neighbourhood? City plans its spending in the south end for 2014 Laura Mueller

News - Homeowners in Ottawa’s rural area will see an average of an extra $55 on their city tax bill in 2014. That 1.9 per cent increase – the smallest municipal taxrate increase in seven years – was proposed in the city’s draft budget, released on Oct. 23. The increase for urban homeowners is slightly larger – an average of $62 extra per home. Residential garbage fees would be held at $82 and recreation fees will continue to be frozen – a promise the mayor made during his election campaign in 2010. The mayor’s salary and councillors’ office budgets will also stay the same. The equivalent of 55 fulltime jobs would be eliminated without layoffs if the budget passes. All of those positions were vacated by employees leav-

ing or retiring in the last six months and the city is not keeping them open for future hires. Next year is also when residents and businesses will see a number of key city services go online: the MyServiceOttawa online account will let people view and pay water and tax bills online, as well as apply for a number of licences and permits. A mobile app for 311 service requests is also in the works. With a large glut of Ottawa on the Move road and sewer construction projects as well as the first phase of light rail out of the way, the city isn’t planning many large new construction projects, so the city won’t have to take on any additional debt in 2014, Mayor Jim Watson said. The city does plan to take out new debt equivalent to the amount of debt it will retire from its books in 2014, said city treasurer Marian Simulik.


In the draft budget, Rideau Valley Drive would get $2.6 million for replacement of storm sewers, the road , curbs and sidewalks between Rogers Stevens and Dorack drives. Ottawa on the Move will continue with 150 projects hitting the ground in 2014 rebuilds of Sherry Lane and Brent Avenue. In the south end, roads to be resurfaced include: • Parkway Road • West Hunt Club Road • Antares Drive • Apple Orchard Road • Yorks Corners Road • Old Prescott Road • Albion Road • Leitrim Road • Baseline Road • Knoxdale Road The city has budgeted $1.5 million for road renewals in the Greenboro area. Overall, the city plans to spend $45 million to resur-

MAYOR JIM WATSON face roads in 2014 and an additional $4 million to improve traffic flow through key intersections during rush hour, including the intersections of West Hunt Club Road at Merivale Road and at Woodroffe Avenue. Studies for the widening of roads mentioned in the recently released draft transportation master plan – the Airport Parkway (Brookfield to the airport), Lester Road, Earl Armstrong Road and Chapman Mills Drive – are also proposed to be done in 2014 for $2 million. The widening of Strandherd Drive from Fallowfield

Road to Kennevale Drive is also set to be studied. The city also plans to complete a $2.7million environmental assessment for the extension of the O-Train line to Bowesville in 2014. Pedestrian improvements planned for the south end mainly relate to improve connections to schools, transit and parks, Cycling facilities would see $2 million in improvements in 2014, including a network of neighbourhood bike lanes for Barrhaven, according to the budget. It contains money for a new cycling transportation planning staffer.

hood Park • Boothfield Park • Citiplace Park 2 • Creekview Park • Fraser Fields Linear Park • Summerhill Park Overall the city plans to spend $2 million to improve accessibility in its parks and buildings, including the Inverness Community Centre. Six libraries, including Greely and Greenboro will get technology upgrades to use radio-frequency identification tracking for materials. For libraries, the city is planning to permanently increase its annual budget for e-books by $50,000. CONSULTATIONS


As communities in the south end continue to grow, a slew of new parks and rec centres are set to be built: • The completion of the Minto Recreation Complex in Barrhaven • Greely Village Centre Park • Water Dragon Park • Fraser Fields Park • Leitrim East Neighbour-

There is one remaining public consultation at which residents can share thoughts on the draft budgets: Thursday, Nov.7 at council chambers in city hall, 110 Laurier Ave. W. from 7 to 9 p.m. Feedback on the draft budget can also be emailed to or your city councillor, or you can tweet feedback by tagging #ottbudget on Twitter.

Valdy to visit Manotick

Arts - He may not play you a rock and roll song, but Valdy is sure to bring Canada’s finest folk era to life when he performs at St. James Anglican Church in Manotick Nov. 18. The Ottawa-born folk singer will offer a solo show to as many as 300 people as part of an ongoing fundraiser to sponsor a Karen refugee family from Myanmar (formerly Burma). Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. The $25 tickets include a reception with cash bar, where fans can get a chance to chat with the Canadian legend himself. Joan Bowler, leader of the Manotick Karen Refugee Sponsorship Program working to bring a needy family to Canada, said it was surprisingly easy to get Valdy to come to play – and it’s going to be a real treat for the village. “What’s special about Valdy is his concerts are so personable,” Bowler said. “He really relates to the audience.” So far, Manotick residents seem to agree. “We haven’t really advertised and we’re already getting lots of calls,” Bowler said. “He was one of the most popular folk singers in Canada

in the early 1970s.” Bowler saw the Glebe High School alumnus perform two years ago in Merrickville, and at that time approached him about doing a concert at her mother’s retirement home in Vancouver, near where he lives with his wife. He was open to the idea then, she said, so she figured it was worth a try to see if he would come here to support their cause during an Eastern Canada tour. “It’s going to be good,” she said. REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP

The Manotick Karen Refugee Sponsorship Program is led by St. James volunteers with help from several other churches and community groups in the village. For the better part of a year the committee has been working to raise enough money to bring a needy family to Canada from where they live in refugee camps along the Thai-Myanmar border. In order to sponsor a refugee family, the commitee needs to raise about $35,000 to cover the family’s financial needs for an entire year. This includes housing, food, clothing, and transportation costs. The group must also commit to helping the family get settled in their

new surroundings. Having lived for years in the camps, many Karen refugees have never had access to electricity or running water, and have never taken a bus. The group will meet them at the airport and take them to their new apartment, likely in the Chinatown area where there is easy access to resources like Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization, the adult high school and other Karen families. The sponsorship group will help settle the children into school and the adults into an English language course. The goal is for at least one member of the family to have a job at the end of the year, so the family can become self-sufficient. The group currently has about $18,000 collected. “That’s more than halfway in six months,” Bowler said, noting she doesn’t have a specific fundraising goal for the concert. “Every little bit counts.” It will likely be late 2014 before the sponsored family arrives, Bowler said. The Karen people have been fighting for independence from Myanmar since the 1940s, and as a result the country is embroiled in the world’s longest-running civil war. Thousands of Karen people have


Joan Bowler, right, and Joy Clarke are part of the Manotick Karen Refugee Sponsorship Program looking to bring a needy family to Canada. been forced to flee to refugee camps along the Thai-Myanmar border, where they’ve lived for decades. There is little access to proper education, healthcare or nutrition. Bowler began to get involved in Karen sponsorship after watching a documentary called How Can A Boy, which chronicles the story of Ottawa resident Nimrod Andrew, who grew up in the refugee camps after his village was attacked by the Myanmar army. He came to Ottawa as a refugee with nothing but an education. Andrew was recently hired by the United Nations to help with peace negotiations in Myanmar, but is

actively involved in the Manotick group. He has ensured that the UN will give him time off to return to Canada when the family arrives, so he can help the committee overcome language and cultural barriers while they help them settle in. The Manotick committee will host another concert on Dec. 7 featuring the Christ Church Cathedral Ottawa Choir of Men and Boys. For concert tickets or more information call Bowler at 613-692-2900, Joy Clarke at 613-692-6486 or the church office at 613-692-2082. Tickets can also be purchased online at

NEWS NOTICE OF COMPLETION Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Carp Snow Disposal Facility Background In January 2012, the City of Ottawa initiated a study to establish a new snow disposal facility in the City’s west end. The City’s strategic snow disposal plan (2002) had identified the need to provide for 308,000 m3 of disposal capacity within one or more snow disposal facilities in the west end. This MCEA study was conducted as a Schedule B project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, as amended 2011, an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. The Process Public Open House (POH#1) was held in February 2013 to present the problem definition. Public Open House # 2 was held August 6th 2013 to present the results of the various site investigations undertaken during 2012/2013 to characterize the site and the environment; identify the alternative designs and mitigative measures being evaluated; and describe the recommended preferred design/solution. Both POHs were held at the Goulbourn Municipal Building Council Chambers at 2135 Huntley Road, Ottawa ON. Information presented at the POHs is available on the City of Ottawa website (see below for link). The recommended solution involves the development of a snow disposal facility (SDF) on a 23.4ha property located at civic address 2125 Carp Road that can accommodate approximately 350,000 m3 of snow collected from Kanata and nearby areas. The SDF development will include a 1-2ha meltwater pond to treat the runoff from the snow melt and a 4-5ha stormwater pond to treat storm water from on-site and off-site sources. Several mitigative measures have been proposed to minimize impacts from the SDF development and include a right-turn deceleration lane along Westbrook road, improving drainage beneath Westbrook Road, construction of a berm along the east property limit to mitigate noise, landscaping along the east and north limits for visual screening, and a liner beneath the meltwater pond and its outlet to protect groundwater quality. Comments received from the POHs and from the agency circulation, the public and other participants have been incorporated into the final report. All comments received were collected in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the Environmental Assessment Act, and have become part of the public record. The final report is available for public review at the following locations:

Free program brings joy of cooking to Osgoode teens Emma Jackson

News - Peanut butter sandwiches for lunch, Kraft Dinner after school and perhaps a bowl of cereal before bed: these are the eating habits of many teens when left to their own devices. But the Osgoode Youth Association is hoping to infuse a little more creativity into that mix with a new cooking program starting Nov. 5. Every Tuesday evening from 6 to 9 p.m., local chefs will take over the O-YA kitchen to show youth aged 11 to 18 how to cook fun, nutritious meals without too much hassle. “They’re all relatively easy meals,” said program organizer Carley Scharf, a youth facilitator at O-YA. “They’re all fun types of meals to make.” The free program can support between eight to 10 teens, and is funded by the city’s Youth Engagement Project. On the recommendation of Ottawa Public Health, O-YA received $1,000 to spend on programs deemed most needed in the community. Scharf put together a teen council to make the decision. “I got them brainstorming and they jumped right on cooking classes,” she said. “In schools they’re teaching nutri-

tion and talking about obesity, but this is applying real life skills.” Scharf said O-YA and other nearby community services do a relatively good job of providing mental health programming and other valuable educational opportunities, but food skills are overlooked. “No one really thinks about this idea of food skills,” she said. “We get taught in school about nutrition but no one really gets taught about the importance of being able to cook for yourself.” She said many teens the youth workers see at O-YA will go home and make themselves a peanut butter sandwich, or maybe a bowl of Kraft Dinner. Rarely do they have the skills to create a healthy, homemade meal that wasn’t cooked in the microwave. And when they eventually move out, they lack the necessary skills to eat healthily. The course begins Tuesday, Nov. 5 with an introduction day to learn about the program, its instructors and the meals the group will tackle. Facilitators will also offer a healthy eating workshop and demonstration. The cooking begins Nov. 12 with chef Ken Roots. Other contributing cooks include local resident Ric McKerracher,

Osgoode Care Centre head chef Joanne Kerr-Hartwick and Tony D’Aviero, head chef at Kelly’s Landing restaurant. Menu items include chili con carne, taco quesadillas, a home-style Italian meal and fettuccine chicken alfredo. Several sessions have yet to finalize the menu. Every few weeks, staff from Ottawa Public Health will also offer nutrition workshops during the sessions. One week staff may discuss why energy drinks are unhealthy, for example, or encourage including greens in a healthy diet. “The cooking component is focusing on food skills and knowing how to make food that’s not made in the microwave, and then Public Health is coming in with the nutritious component,” Scharf said. On Thursday, Dec. 19 the group will host a grand finale, where the young chefs can bring a friend from 6 to 7:30 p.m. to show them how to make their new favourite meal. Then, at 7:30 p.m., the doors will be open to all friends and family to try samples of their work. Scharf said the program sold out in less than 48 hours. For more information contact Scharf by email at carley@, call 613-826-0726 or visit O-YA in person and register with any youth worker.

Women’s Day offers passport into Manotick Emma Jackson

Community - Women’s Day is going a step further to show the charms of Manotick to the outside world. The sixth annual event taking place on Saturday, Nov. 2, has introduced passports for participants, who can take the booklet to the many vendors, restaurants and businesses catering to women in the village that day. “Once it’s completed they’re eligible to enter a draw to win one of three prizes,” said Donna Smith, executive

director of the Manotick BIA, which organizes the event. Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Nov. 2, women are welcome to explore the village while getting pampered at every turn. Manotick’s volunteer firefighters will help the BIA hand out 1,000 welcome gifts, and the more than 50 businesses on board will also offer sweet nothings for the ladies. “There are in-store draws, in-store specials, there are gifts and special menu items,” Smith said. The participants range from local restaurants to health and wellness clinics.

“It’s a really varied mix.” Throughout the day, Sax Appeal jazz quartet will roam the streets and stores offering entertainment. Billed as the ultimate girl’s day out, the free event is a nobrainer for women looking for a fun afternoon, Smith said. “You don’t have to buy a ticket, you just show up and wander around and have fun,” she said. “It’s a great day out for the ladies. It’s meant to be fun and interesting and educational.” For more information about the event visit the website at

The City of Ottawa has prepared an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) to support the Community Design Plan for Phase 2 of the East Urban Community. The EMP identifies the stormwater management solution for the study area, which is bounded by Renaud Road to the north, the CPR railway tracks to the south, Mer Bleue Road to the east and Phase 1 of the East Urban Community to the west. The Environmental Management Plan has been completed as a Master Plan under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process. The Master Plan identifies the stormwater management infrastructure requirements for future development in the study area. This notice serves as a Notice of Completion for the following projects: stormwater management pond (Schedule B); and diversion of drainage between watersheds (Schedule C).

Calm amidst political storms


f for no other reason, Ottawa’s city council should be applauded for bringing a muchneeded dose of stability to an otherwise messy political scene with its 2014 draft budget tabled last week. Amid the gusting winds of a Senate scandal on Parliament Hill and the simmering gas plant saga surrounding the minority Liberals at Queen’s Park, voters in this city should be thankful that, at a minimum, there is stability on Laurier Avenue. For the fourth year running, the council led by Mayor Jim Watson has presented a budget that has managed to keep the accompanying property tax hike below 2.5 per cent (the hike will be a mere 1.9 per cent in 2014 if the plan passes). That is no easy feat, especially considering the wide-ranging scope of infrastructure and transportation-related projects either underway or being planned across the city. But with an election only a year away, what is in store for Ottawans when the bills start arriving for the grand vision that is the transportation master plan (also in draft form currently) and things like Canada’s 150th birthday celebration? Will modest tax increases still be a viable option when it’s time to fund rail to OrlÊans (and Riverside South, Algonquin College and Bayshore)?

The sesquicentennial is something that shouldn’t be underestimated in the years to come: yes the federal and provincial governments will pick up much of the tab, but the temptation will be strong for municipal politicians to make their mark when the country celebrates a century and a half of Confederation. And what of political ambition? Next October voters head back to the polls to pass judgement on this council and those seeking to supplant the current class of civic leaders. Will fiscal prudence be enough to sway the hearts and minds of Ottawa? Or will a new, more expensive vision win the day? New parks, community centres, libraries, arenas, baseball diamonds, soccer fields and cycling lanes are things that many people want, yet are often told the city can’t afford. Who is to say voters couldn’t be sold on an extra one per cent on their tax bill in exchange for such civic improvements. The next election will doubtlessly be a referendum on Watson, especially his tight control over the city’s purse strings. This doesn’t mean he won’t change his tune by the time election season gets underway late next summer, but it would be surprising if he did. In the meantime, residents should rest easy knowing scandal and chaos are nowhere to be found at city hall – just business as usual.


Fighting the curse of sameness


t’s a rather abstract concept for city planners and city councils to think about, but one of the biggest threats to any city, including ours, is the curse of sameness. Sameness has the power of the economic system behind it, not to mention certain cultural forces as well. To illustrate, look at a recent headline in the Globe and Mail: “Put away your sou’wester. Chic is the new norm in Newfoundland’s big city – so are espresso bars and restaurants with a refined culinary focus.â€? Inside, the article begins: “Ten years go, it was impossible to get a decent cup of coffee in downtown St. John’s.â€? But, the article cheerfully goes on, oil-driven economic prosperity has changed all that: “It’s hard to walk for a block on Water Street, the city’s main drag, without hitting a slick cafĂŠ.â€? You’ll note the sense of relief here, in that “all across the city, there’s a newfound sense of urban cosmopolitanism that seems to have everyone a bit gobsmacked.â€? In other words, St. John’s could be becoming more like Toronto. Is that good? Perhaps it is if you’re from another place and your priority is finding a cup of coffee. But not so

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town much if you live there and want your town to keep its identity. And not so much if you’re from another town and want to see a place that’s different from the one you came from. Sameness is not an overnight thing. It has been creeping in for decades, beginning in the suburbs and working its way downtown. I remember visiting St. John’s 25 years ago and walking around a mall looking for something Newfoundlandesque to bring home as a present. I couldn’t find anything. Everything in that mall I could have found at Bayshore. But then, malls do that. Generally speaking, the stores in them are part of national or continental chains. The merchandise comes from elsewhere. Although many city cores, including, actually, St. John’s, retain their distinctiveness,

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, October 31, 2013

the suburban sameness trend has intensified in the past 25 years, propelled by the big box store and the power centre. If you went to, say, the Centrum in Kanata, you could just as easily be in a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama as in a suburb of Ottawa, Ontario. There is probably no fighting this. Free trade, globalization – all today’s economic forces push it. It doesn’t help that we, the consumers, are doing some pushing of our own, demanding the same products, the same services, the same slick cafÊs that are available elsewhere. We also want all the same television shows and with them, we see the same advertisements for the same products that are seen everywhere else. Given all that, it is a wonder that anything distinctive survives anywhere. Still, it is an incentive to protect what we can of the things that separate one community from another. There is more to city life than slick cafÊs. At the very least we can make our slick cafÊs different from other cities’ slick cafÊs. It comes down to protecting and encouraging local owners. How this is to be done is not easy to figure out or someone would have figured it out by now. We sort of know what not to do. We know not to say yes to every

developer who wants to put a condo where a theatre was. But we don’t know where to find the courage to say it. We know not to let commercial rents rise so high that only chains can afford to pay them. But again, we haven’t found a way to do that. We know we should be encouraging local shoppers to shop local, but again, how do we do that, particularly when the chains are selling stuff cheaper? A good start would be at least to recognize what is unique about the city and recognize that it is worth keeping.

News - A North Dundas thrift store and food bank is extending its hours due to high demand from the neediest members of its community. Beginning Nov. 4, the nonprofit House of Lazarus will extend its hours at the two thrift shops and food bank it operates out of Mountain, east of Kemptville. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays the stores will stay open two hours longer, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hours will increase a full eight hours, opening from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The food bank hours will also increase. Between Monday and Friday the food bank will be open an hour longer each day, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays will hold evening hours from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday will remain the same with opening hours between 9 a.m. and noon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The increasing demand on our food bank, particularly with the working poor, has led to our decision to extend our hours of operation,â&#x20AC;? said

Pauline Pratt, executive director of the House of Lazarus. She added that extended store hours will help finance other programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our two shops are our main source of funding, so whether you are donating or shopping it is supporting our work in the community,â&#x20AC;? she said. Between April and September, there has been an increase in the number of food bank visits from 576 in 2012 to 694 in 2013, Pratt said. The number of kilograms of food distributed rose to 19,296 kg from 13,121 kg for the same time period last year. The need for a broadened and informed provincial poverty reduction strategy is clear -particularly in rural communities, Pratt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As an agency for advocacy and social justice, we are working with our partner agencies to provide information and education to the public and all levels of government to bring about some of the necessary changes for a more sustainable and equitable community,â&#x20AC;? she said. The House of Lazarus thanked its many allies for the ongoing support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very grateful for the continued support of the communities that surround us. Without your generosity we would not be able to do the work we do,â&#x20AC;? Pratt said. She offered â&#x20AC;&#x153;gratitude and thanksâ&#x20AC;? to Jack and Mary Du-

rant for donating a stretch of garden space to plant a fundraising garlic project and other vegetables for the food bank. She also thanked local farmers who have donated beef to support the food bank families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without their support our families would have few protein choices,â&#x20AC;? Pratt said. Mike Deanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Andyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foodland and Jonssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Your Independent Grocer Kemptville were also recognized for their support of the food bank and its projects. She added that volunteering can be a rewarding way to give back to the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are always in need of volunteers here at the mission to sort, stack and store our abundant donations from our community supporters, so if you have three to five hours a week or month we have an opportunity for you where you can make a difference,â&#x20AC;? Pratt said. The House of Lazarus will host a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas shopping night on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 5 to 8 p.m. Children can choose Christmas gifts for their family and get excited about giving, Pratt said. The House of Lazarus is located at 2245 Simms St. in Mountain. To learn more about the mission and how you can contribute call 613-989-3830, email house.lazarus@gmail. com or visit the website at

Metcalfe celebrates 50 years of girl’s ringette


Emma Jackson

Sports - Metcalfe’s ringette community helped its favourite sport a mark half century of success on Oct. 22. Ringette Canada brought its 30-day, 15-city road show to the village as part of its ongoing

celebration of ringette’s 50th anniversary. The evening was a partnership with the Metcalfe and District Ringette Association, and included a free skate with two Ringette Canada mascots, a skill-building session with National Ringette League players and a game between the Ottawa Ice and Gloucester

Devils NRL teams. Ringette Canada’s sport development manager Frances Losier said the road show is a way to promote awareness of the sport while giving strong ringette communities across Canada a chance to celebrate. See NATIONAL, page 13

National players host drills, game Continued from page 12


Sam Green, a member of the Gloucester-Cumberland Devils national ringette league team, helps lead a drill at the Larry Robinson arena on Oct. 22 during a Ringette Canada celebration of 50 years of ringette. Canada come to Metcalfe was a great way to raise the profile of the sport in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully it will help promote ringette in the district,â&#x20AC;? he said. R0012231973

dent Paul Charbonneau said the celebrations coincide with his associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40th anniversary, which just added an extra level of excitement to the festivities. He said having Ringette



â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were looking for places where this would be a big deal,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that players in smaller associations may not otherwise get a chance to meet Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top players. Losier said Metcalfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ringette association is smaller than other associations in the Ottawa region because of its rural location, but it has an enthusiastic volunteer and participant base. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in ringette, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in it for life,â&#x20AC;? she said. Ringette was invented in 1963 by Sam Jacks, then the director of parks and recreation for North Bay, Ont., and the first game was put into action by Red McCarthy, recreation director for the town of Espanola, Ont. in 1963. Since then, ringette associations have popped up across the country and the sport has become a popular activity for young girls. On Oct. 22, young ringette players got a chance to see just how far ringette can take you, as several members of the Gloucester Devils and Ottawa Ice led skill-building drills and games on the ice. The national-level players had the girls sprinting up and down the ice, stopping at the blue line and taking shots on net. Later, the two teams faced off in an elite-level game in the arena.

Carrot spice bundt cake makes a nice fall treat Lifestyle - You can’t go wrong with this easy cake iced with a gooey cream cheese frosting. Prep time: 20 minutes. Baking time: 45 minutes. Serves 12 to 14. INGREDIENTS

• 625 ml (2-1/2 cups) all-purpose flour • 10 ml (2 tsp) baking powder • 10 ml (2 tsp) cinnamon • 7 ml (1-1/2 tsp) nutmeg • 7 ml (1-1/2 tsp) ground ginger • 4 ml (3/4 tsp) salt • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) baking soda • 325 ml (1-1/3 cups) vegetable oil • 425 ml (1-3/4 cups) granulated sugar • 4 eggs, lightly beaten • 15 ml (1 tbsp) vanilla • 750 ml (3 cups) loosely packed, coarsely grated carrot • 1 apple, peeled and chopped Icing • 1 package (125 g /4 oz) cream cheese, at room temperature • 25 ml (2 tbsp) butter, room temperature • 375 to 500 ml (1-1/2 to 2 cups) sifted icing sugar

• 2 ml (1/2 tsp) vanilla • Squeeze of lemon PREPARATION

Lightly grease a 25-centimetre (10-inch) bundt pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt and baking soda. In a large bowl, whisk the oil with sugar then eggs and vanilla, then stir in the flour mixture until blended. Stir in the carrots and apple. Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top as best you can. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven until toothpick inserted in cake comes out

clean – about 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cake stand in the pan on a baking rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around edge and then carefully turn out onto the rack, allowing it cool completely before icing. Icing: In a large bowl and using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese with the butter until it’s smooth and creamy. Gradually add icing sugar until the mixture is a thick, spreadable consistency. Beat in the vanilla and lemon juice until blended. Add a little more icing sugar if mixture is too runny to spread. Foodland Ontario

Shoulders, sidewalks take time: Moffatt Continued from page 1

“But you can’t fix (the missing links) in a short period of time,” Moffatt said. “We can’t just go and resurface every single road and widen all the shoulders.” Moffatt pointed out that this summer the city added a sidewalk between Bridge and the curling club as part of the Van Vliet realignment project, and a new sidewalk is under construction along Dickinson Street. He said Long Island Road is a priority and ideally the city will install sidewalks or a multi-use pathway to make the busy road safer for the many pedestrians who use it to get to the schools and the north end of the island. He said budgets force the city to take a piecemeal approach, pairing accessibility improvements with other projects in order to be most efficient. “It does mean there’s going to be gaps ... but long-term things will get better,” Moffatt said. “We will take the opportunity to make it easier to get around the community.” MacLaurin said from his perspective paved shoulders would be the biggest asset, because they can accommodate virtually any kind of pedestrian or



Manotick resident Don MacLaurin uses a motorized wheelchair to get around the village. He says the community lacks the proper pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure like paved shoulders to make Manotick accessible to everyone. small vehicle like a scooter or bicycle. “Paved shoulders are the single most universal benefit there is,” he said. And to skeptics who may suggest that he should simply move somewhere more acces-

sible, MacLaurin said it’s not that easy. “That’s why I’m so disappointed, because I love the community,” said the Kiwanis volunteer. “I grew up here; I love the people.” He said he will continue to

lobby for accessible infrastructure until he sees change in his hometown. “I’m trying to be an advocate for the benefit of everyone,” he said. “I’m hoping it can be a more inclusive type of community.”


Pet Adoptions


Brando is an outgoing and playful, five-year-old, neutered male, domestic shorthair cat who arrived at the OHS in February from another shelter. This interactive kitty loves to engage in play with people and toys. He especially loves feather wands, laser pointers and “Cat Dancer” toys. Bruno enjoys being groomed and having his ears scratched and, although he is happiest when he has your full attention, he is also content to relax on a window sill and watch the birds and squirrels outside. Brando would make a lovely companion on walks as he enjoys walking on a harness. Brando is a “Special Needs” cat because he is currently being fed a hypo-allergenic and may require ongoing veterinary care. To learn more about Brando, please contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext 258 or visit us at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Visit the OHS website at to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption. Stop by the Adoption Centre, weekdays 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Ottawa Humane Society reminds pet owners to keep pets safe as the weather cools

My name is Bullet I’m a Chihuahua, I will be 3 years old November 24th, I was born in Rockland and I moved to Orleans when I was 7 weeks. I weigh 9 pounds full grown and I’m in very good health. I’m a bit shy, but I want them to know I`m still the Boss. As you can see in the picture I love lying down in the Sun, don`t forget I’m a Mexican ChiChi.

body fat. Short-haired pets feel the cold faster, as they have less protection from the elements. Try outfitting your pet with a sweater or jacket to make your walks more comfortable. The same consideration should be taken for very young and old pets. Stay inside: Pets should be kept inside during cold weather. Dogs that live outside require, at minimum, a doghouse soundly built of weatherproof materials and positioned facing away from prevailing winds. Make sure the doghouse is elevated and insulated, with a door flap and bedding of straw or wood shavings. Animals that are outside need a constant source of fresh water, so check your dog’s bowl often to ensure it hasn’t frozen over. Identification: Having an animal run away from home at any time of the year is troublesome, but especially

during the colder seasons when it’s especially dangerous. Make sure your best friends are equipped with proper identification – including a collar, tag and microchip – to ensure they have the best possible chance of finding their way back to you. It’s best to limit the amount of outdoor time for any animal in frigid temperatures, so take your dog for lots of short walks instead of one long one. Remember never to leave an animal in an unheated car for long periods of time. The OHS recommends that cat owners keep their cats indoors year ‘round. If your cat does go outdoors, make sure it’s only for short periods and ensure your cat is inside overnight. If you see an animal in distress or without adequate shelter from the cold, call the OHS emergency line at (613) 725-1532.

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

Antifreeze: The taste of antifreeze is appealing to many animals and they will readily consume it if given the chance. But even a small amount of antifreeze can be harmful, or even fatal, to your pet. Consider a less toxic alternative to ethylene glycol-based antifreeze that is most commonly used. A new propylene glycol-based antifreeze available at many retail outlets and is safer for pets and humans alike. Car engines: Cats and wildlife are drawn to the heat generated by your car’s engine on cold days. Make sure you bang on your car’s hood to avoid injuring a sleeping creature. Know their limits: Just because Fido has his very own coat doesn’t mean he is staying warm on your long fall walks. Just like people, pets’ tolerance to cold weather differs individually based on their coat, activity levels, health and

A youthful fascination with people’s hands


ften, when I was sitting at the old pine table at night with the coal oil lamp giving off faint shards of light, I examined the hands of those around me. For reasons I was never able to explain, I was deeply interested in other people’s hands. Even though the same blood ran through our veins, there weren’t two of us with the same hand shapes. I would look over at Father, slouched in the old rocking chair close to the Findlay Oval, and I could see his hands holding the Ottawa Farm Journal. They were small hands, I thought, for a man, but I knew them to be powerful. They were calloused and wore the look of hard labour, and they could tie up a pig or roll a heifer with ease. But when he ruffled my hair, as he often did when he passed me, his hands were gentle and loving. My sister Audrey had long tapering fingers and I always thought her hands were narrow. I would look at them and try to compare them with

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories my own, which, even with a young eye, I could see that mine were wider by far. How I would envy Audrey her pretty hands. I knew too, that the reason she was able to do such beautiful hand work, embroidering French knots and lazy daisies on our tea towels and pillow cases, was because she had the perfect hands for the job. Even the hands of my three brothers differed from each other. Earl, the smallest, had hands that suited his slight build. Everett, the oldest of the three, had hands that were already beginning to show he would be expected to carry his weight on the farm. He complained of calluses and often said his fingers hurt. There was little sympathy

for Everett -- he was needed on the farm and the sooner he got used to hard work the better off he would be, Father told him. Emerson, the biggest of the three, but the middle son, had big hands. They matched perfectly his big frame and his almost six-foot height by the time he was 12 years old. But Mother always said Emerson had the hands of an artist. How she could tell, I had no idea, but she believed one day Emerson would be a great artist or a builder of fine buildings with those hands. So she squirrelled change out of her egg money from the blue sugar bowl and took advantage of Ritza’s Rexall Drug Store one cent sale and bought him art paper and soft leaded pencils, so sure was

she that Emerson’s hands would one day make him famous. I would look at Mother, too, sitting at the end of the table, with her diaries spread out around her, with a bottle of real ink in front of her and a pen. She always wrote in her diaries with ink, never with pencil. If would look at her hands and then at mine, I would think that our hands of all those in the family were the most alike. Her two little fingers, like mine, had a slight bend in them. I would watch her, face down over her diaries, and I would hope that one day I too could fill scribbler after scribbler with my thoughts and wishes, just like my mother. We children were never allowed to read her diaries – “diaries are private” she would say – and we knew better than go near them, stacked in neat piles on one of the top-most shelves of the back-to-the-wall cupboard. Sometimes, she would write so quickly, as her thoughts came and for so

long, that she would have to stop and rub her fingers to ease the stiffness. That’s when I would notice how much our hands were alike, even though mine were smaller. My interest in hands came naturally, I decided many years later, because they played such an important part in our lives. Our brothers were taught at an early age to offer a hand to anyone older than they were and whom they happened to meet on the streets of Renfrew. Off would come the caps and the hand would be thrust out in greeting. My sister Audrey and I were excused from handshaking, which was a great relief to me. At an early age, I noticed the difference between a greeting handshake and one that was used to close a deal. In greeting, the hands were pumped, up and down, up and down, like a pump handle. But if a deal was coming to a close, the hands met in a clasp and one handshake was all it took. One pump and the deal was done.

It didn’t take a lawyer to make a deal binding, just a simple handshake. It was impossible to live in that old log house in Northcote, and not be aware of hands. Clean hands, too -- Mother was a stickler for clean hands. The wash basin sat on the bench at the back door, the water changed often, a homemade bar of soap in a saucer beside it and a huck towel on a roller on the wall. No one got within a country mile of the table at mealtime without a thorough wash of the hands. We never set out for school without washing our hands. The last thing we did before we crawled into bed at night was wash our hands. Emerson, who thought Mother took this clean hands business too far, often could be heard saying, under his breath of course, “I think we must have the cleanest hands in all of Renfrew County.” Well, that’s the way Mother wanted it, and what Mother wanted, Mother got. None of us dared question her.

Poilievre says new plan will boost economy Minister of Democratic Reform says senate reform may be possible without changes to Charter Jennifer McIntosh

News - Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre said the recent speech from the throne on Parliament Hill points to a plan that will create jobs and stimulate the economy. Poilievre pointed to the recently agreed free trade agreement with the European Union, calling it a win and a historic deal for Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be the only country to have free trade agreements with the U.S. and Europe,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement will eliminate tariffs, encourage foreign investment in Canada and create jobs,

Poilievre said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will also give consumers more options,â&#x20AC;? he said. A key point in the throne speech is what the government calls pro-consumer measures like limiting cellular roaming charges and allow customers to have more say in their cable programming choices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It allows people to get the channels they want without the expensive bundles,â&#x20AC;? Poilievre said. On the savings side, the speech indicated the federal government will be reducing the public service again and freezing spending increases in upcoming budgets. Aside from job cuts and a look at sick leave and disability benefits, the government

will attempt to make things more efficient by selling off property and moving to a single email system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to reduce the cost of government,â&#x20AC;? Poilievre said, adding â&#x20AC;&#x153;smallerâ&#x20AC;? cuts to public service now will save the country from a slash and burn that would become necessary if the public service gets too big and too costly. SENATE REFORM

While the throne speech didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specifically deal with Senate reform, Poilievre, who also serves as the minister of Democratic Reform, said the government is looking at ways to make changes to the upper chamber. Poilievre said the suspensions of Sen. Pamela Wallin, Sen. Mike Duffy and Sen. Patrick Brazeau while their expense claims are being investigated points to the commitment of the government on reform. Poilievre said before the

Quebec Court of Appeal decision on Oct. 24, that he believes the government can go ahead with Senate reform without the co-operation of the provinces. The question is whether the government would need the support of all 10 provinces or the support of seven that represent 50 per cent of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population. But the court ruled that the federal government had no right to set Senate term limits or elections without provincial


Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre is in charge of senate reform. approval. The Supreme Court of Canada will hold hearings on the

Senate in mid-November. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It must either be reformed or abolished,â&#x20AC;? Poilievre said.

Homes for the Holidays just around the corner! by Robert Greenslade The eleventh annual Homes for the Holidays tour on November 15, 16 and 17, is only days away and anticipation is building for this very special event. The tour, now its eleventh year, supports end-of-life care programs offered by Hospice Care Ottawa, including those at the May Court Hospice. “Homes for the Holidays will help us improve hospice services in Ottawa and reach our goal of increasing the number of area beds,” noted Lisa Sullivan, Executive Director of Hospice Care Ottawa. The tour is open daily from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and features six outstanding homes in the neighbourhoods of Rockcliffe Park, Rothwell Heights, the Glebe, Old Ottawa South and Island Park Drive. Prominent area florists and designers will volunteer their decorating skills to the homes: three reflecting a specific seasonal theme (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) and three highlighting the festive spirit of the holidays. For example,104 Black Maple Private features a “Very Special Christmas Eve”. This home is one of a collection of six elegant residences on the street. Mood Moss Florist and Jacobsons Gourmet Concepts combine their decorating talents to this home. Another Rockcliffe Park home, the residence of the Swiss Ambassador to Canada (494 Lansdowne Road North), is a stately French Château-style home, decorated for the tour by Tivoli Florist. This house was acquired by the Government of Switzerland in 1948 and enjoys frontage on picturesque McKay Lake. Striking 13 Massey Lane in Rothwell Heights is decorated by Stoneblossom Floral Gallery. The home features mature trees and is notable for its cedar shingles, copper roof accents and front canopy. A “Christmas Morning Wonder” (Tinseltown offers the Christmas decorative magic here) awaits visitors to 8 Thornton Avenue, just steps from bustling Bank Street. It’s interesting to note that the homeowner and her father worked closely to design the exterior and interior of this sun-drenched home. A relatively new home, designed by Barry Hobin and decorated by Mill Street Florist, 900 Colonel By Drive’s stucco and stone exterior gives way to a light and airy interior and preserves ties to its past by retaining the property’s 150-year-old stone wall. And visitors will not want to miss 512 Island Park Drive, decorated by Michael Courdin Design, for the “New Year’s Eve Celebration”! This contemporary home features many windows which give the house a strong connection to the outdoors. Participants will also want to visit the completely revamped Holiday PopUp Shop, this year located at the Official Residence of the Irish Ambassador (291 Park Road). Visitors will be able to get a head start on their holiday shopping and browse the children’s corner, affordable artwork, jewellery, seasonal décor, and delicious preserves prepared by some of the region’s top food purveyors (and visitors can pause for a coffee or tea too). And the best news is you won’t have to go far for tickets! Tickets are available at 25 outlets across the city and via PayPal too.
