City to offer more free well testing Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa Public Health is hoping that offering more opportunities for residents to test their wells will prompt them to take drinking water safety seriously. Right now, only about three per cent of residents whose homes are served by private wells use the free testing offered by the city. That’s about 900 of the estimated 30,000 private wells in both the rural and urban areas.

If wells are contaminated with pathogens like illness-causing bacteria or viruses, it can cause both short-term and long-term health problems. It’s recommended that well water is tested regularly – at least three times a year. In the past, the public health department would focus on two blitzes – one in the spring and one in the fall – to hand out water-testing bottles and let residents know the free service is available. There were a few places where residents could pick up free bottles and drop

off samples year-round, but the hours were limited and varied and the service wasn’t well known. Now, public health wants to offer the testing all year and make the bottles available at more locations throughout the city. In addition to drop-offs at Ottawa Public Health’s office at 100 Constellation Cres. in Centrepoint and the Public Health Ontario lab at 2380 St. Laurent Boul., the service will be See RESIDENTS, page 2 R0012507772_0313

available at 16 businesses and city facilities in the rural area. Even though the city has offered the free service for years, many people don’t know about it, said Siobhan Kearns, manager of public health’s environment and health protection branch. In some cases, people have been drinking the water for years and never become ill, so they assume the water will always be safe, Kearns said. “People have wells (and) septic systems, but there is almost this sense of ‘out of sight, out of mind,’ because it’s working,� she said.

to disinfect it. Residents should use bottled water and/or boil the well water for at least a minute until they can have the well water retested to ensure the chlorine worked, Kearns said. E. coli infections are rarer and more dangerous, Kearns said. Public health can refer residents to companies that offer remediation for more serious well issues. In the past, it’s been hard for the city to track local well conditions because the testing is private and not tracked, Kearns said. “Our only real point where we can determine how many residents are testing the wells were in the past from our spring and fall well water pick up,� she said. Expanding the well water drop-off locations will better allow the public health department to track the number of samples that are being submitted. The city still won’t have access to the results of the testing, but encouraging more well testing could provide the public health department with useful anecdotal information, Kearns said. If more residents ask Ottawa Public Health for information on how to interpret their results or fix an issue identified through the testing, the health department might notice a trend and be able to address localized issues that could contaminate wells, such as fertilizer or animalwaste run-off. “That would key into us that (public health) might want to look into something for that area,� Kearns said. “It’s a trigger.� Kearns said some of the hesitation to test well water might be because residents worry about what the city will do with the information. But

That’s not the case. Different types of wells – drilled or dug – are susceptible to different issues that could crop up any time – even if there has never been a problem with the well before. Contamination can result from a number of causes, including flooding or problems with nearby septic beds, Kearns said. Based on the questions public health staff receive, it seems that the most common issue identified with well testing in Ottawa is coliform contamination, Kearns said. Coliform itself doesn’t usually cause illness but its presence indicates other pathogens could get into the water. It can be fixed by treating the well with chlorine

the results don’t get reported to the city, she said. The only way the city would know about the results is if the resident asks public health to help interpret their well-testing results and advise on how to fix problems. In those situations, the city keeps a log of a call requesting information about well remediation, but personal details aren’t tracked because it’s private medical information, Kearns said. “When residents submit their water samples, we don’t know. We don’t get that information. It goes directly back to the well owner,� she said. The changes won’t change the cost of the program. Ottawa Public Health spends $13,000 each year to provide well water testing.

The event will feature one, three, five and 10mile courses, all starting at Centennial Park and working their way up Manotick Main Street. Registration is cut off on April 14 and race day is on April 27. Glasper said this year, sponsors will have a chance to have information booths on the day runners come to pick up their race kits. “We wanted to make it a kind of festival atmosphere,� she said, adding there are prizes and an outdoor barbecue. Registration for the 10-mile race is $67. The five-mile is $48. The three-mile is $42. The onemiler is $30 and the family miler event is $65. Prices go up after the registration cut off on April 14.

Manotick youth named Junior Citizen of the Year Jennifer McIntosh

News - Tommy Glatzmayer and his two pet rats have received accolades from the Ontario Community Newspaper Association. Tommy, along with a dozen other finalists from across the province, was named Junior Citizens of the Year during a ceremony in Toronto on March 6. Tommy received the award for the work he has done to raise awareness about children with disabilities. Manotick News is an OCNA member. It all started in 2009 when Tommy was in Grade one. Kids at school had made fun of his sister Melanie – who was born with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome – a genetic disorder that affects a child’s physical and intellectual development – and he wanted to do something to make it stop. His mother Nathalie Wendling, said he came home and said he wanted to write a book about his sisters condition to help their schoolmates better understand. “Back then it was the first time I had two, solid hours alone with him (Tommy) every day,” Nathalie said, adding the challenges of Melanie’s conditions didn’t leave as much time for Tommy as she would have liked. “So when he came home and wanted to write a book, I was pretty excited to help him.” Nathalie said Tommy’s teacher was impressed with the novella idea as well. “She said she assigns kids to write a small book each year, but they usually write about themselves. Tommy was the first kid who wanted to write about his sister,” she said. Nathalie self-published the book in 2009, with the help of a local photographer. The book, entitled Melanie and Tommy have two pet rats and one syndrome, explained his sister’s condition and showed her as a regular kid with hobbies and routines. The idea was

to attack the bullying that can sometimes happen when children are labelled different. Tommy and Melanie did their first school presentation in 2010, armed with copies of the book and their two pet rats. Since that first school, the kids have done more than 60 presentations, distributed 10,000 books and toured as far as New Brunswick. Nathalie said Tommy’s teacher Corey Fitzgerald at Kars on the Rideau helps him work on his presentations during the recess. Another book called Melanie and Tommy have two pet rats and one syndrome: Catelli Castle was published in 2012. The new book introduced the Manotick community to Zachary who has TreacherCollins Syndrome – which causes physical deformities – and Alex who had a tumour removed from his lower jaw and has a jagged scar. “The first book worked really well to introduce the Manotick community to Melanie,” Nathalie said. “And Tommy wanted to help the other Melanies out there.” Nathalie said the sponsors make the travelling possible, but Tommy was always keen to help. “I remember taking him to Orillia once, to give his talk to help a little boy with a disability there,” Nathalie said. “He

was a bit nervous and I said, ‘we don’t have to do it,’ but he told me he had to help the other Melanies out there.” Tommy said he’s honoured to receive the accolades from the OCNA, but he continues doing what he does to make a difference, not for the awards. For the first time this year, the Glatzmayer family is going international with the presentation. In the last two weeks of June, Tommy and Melanie have been booked at several schools in California. Nathalie said she hopes to book a show in each province they hit before entering the United States. Each school Tommy and Melanie present to gets 10 copies of the books. “Now that we have sponsors, selling the books isn’t as important as getting the message out,” Nathalie said. Another new project includes a drumming and signing circle. It will be hosted at Tommy’s house each Friday once momentum builds, Nathalie said. Tommy said he will continue to raise awareness and hopes to make a difference in the lives of kids living with disabilities. “If you see someone different give them a smile,” Tommy said.

NROCRC to host free income tax

Thursday evenings from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Appointments are also available on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. “We serve hundreds of clients each year through this program,” Wooley said, adding most people find out about the clinics by word of mouth. To be eligible for the service, clients must be under certain income thresholds. Single people’s annual income can’t be more than $30,000. An adult with a child can make up to $35,000 – with an additional $2,500 waived per dependant – and a couple can’t make more than $40,000 combined.

Resource centre shines a light on youth Jennifer McIntosh jennifer. mcintosh@metroland.com

News - A local resource centre plans to shine a light on youth programming. The Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre is once again hosting their Shine a Light on Youth gala at the Centurion Conference Centre on April 26. The gala – which is aimed at raising funds for youth programming – has been an annual event for the last four years, said NROCRC executive director Sandy Wooley. The gala will even feature entertainment by youth, Wooley said. Singers Charmaine and Aurora Finkle from the after school club at Frank Ryan Senior Catholic Elementary School will hit the stage, along with the Sir Robert Borden Secondary School jazz band. Later in the evening, local band Blacksmith will take to the stage. Even more important than who’s on the bill are the programs that will be helped with the funds raised. Wooley said the goal this year is $20,000 – an attempt to build on the success of past years. Wooley said past fundraisers have made youth mental health counselling possible. There’s a part-time counsellor available at

the centre’s Merivale Road headquarters two days per week. “We would like to expand that program,” Wooley said. The centre also helps to build for youth, by youth-style programming. One example of these types of initiatives recently formed Youth of Manotick – A group of Manotick and area teens looking to increase recreational activities for young people. The group – along with members of the Manotick and Village Community Association – are also trying to raise funds to build a welcoming centre for youth that would include services and recreational activities. The centre has lent the support of community developers and interns to help get that program going. In Parkwood Hills, NROCRC worked with a group of youth leaders to build capacity for after school and sports programs. The gala is set to kick off April 26 at 170 Colonnade Road at 6 p.m. with a buffet dinner. There will also be live and silent auctions. Deputy police chief Jill Skinner will be the guest speaker and Brent Corbeil from Boom 99.7 will be the Master of Ceremonies. “There will be something for everyone,” Wooley said. Tickets are $65.

Honest discussion is required

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time we took a hard, honest look at our attitudes towards survivors of sexual violence and sexual assault. Canada is built upon a bedrock of laws that define acceptable and unacceptable behaviour and our Criminal Code contains a lengthy section discussing the legal consequences of sexual assault. Unfortunately, the problem isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rooted in the lexicon of our legal system â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fault lies in ourselves and the underlying mores of society. Student groups at the University of Ottawa claim a â&#x20AC;&#x153;rape cultureâ&#x20AC;? exists on campus, an attitude that excuses, tolerates and even condones sexual assaults. Last month, the university was hit with the news of an alleged sexual assault involving hockey players from the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s varsity team in Thunder Bay, Ont. The alleged assault took place during the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit to Lakehead University for two games played on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1. Thunder Bay police are in the early stages of an investigation. If that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad enough, Anne-Marie Roy, the head of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undergraduate student federation was later the victim of a sexually explicit chat on a private Facebook site, which she received from an anonymous email.

Roy brought a copy of the Facebook chat to a meeting of the student union board of administration in February, asking for a condemnation of those who engaged in the chat, which included two board members. Roy was later quoted in the media as saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rape culture is very present on our campuses . . . I think that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very shameful to see that there are student leaders who are perpetuating that within their own circles.â&#x20AC;? Students at the University of Ottawa have formed the independent initiative against rape culture, an organization that is urging an open discussion about attitudes existing on campus. The group is also calling for more support for victims of sexual assaults. On May 1, the family of a Nova Scotia teenager who took her own life after she was allegedly sexually assaulted and bullied both online and at school is holding an event in Kanata to raise money to support survivors of sexual assault. The fundraiser aims to fund cottage retreats for survivors of sexual assault to recover from their traumatic experiences. Such initiatives spark discussion about our attitudes towards survivors of sexual assault. Talking is often the precursor to social change.

When it comes to cities, fun is relative

T

he question of whether or not Ottawa is the town fun forgot has come up again, just when we thought we were rid of Allan Fotheringham. A new documentary film is coming out that ponders the question of how dull Ottawa is or isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that people who have been here a long time donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about much, except when it is raised. Then we defend or attack. The Town That Fun Forgot was Fotheringhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s description, or probably was, back in the early 1980s, and it stuck. Most peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feelings werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt, but some were. Most people knew that we did not, in fact, wait for the light to change when crossing a deserted street at three in the morning. Most people knew that there were places in Ottawa where music and laughter could be found. You just had to know where to look for them. Being a place that fun forgot has something to do with being a capital, a place full of politicians, bureaucrats and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; yes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; journalists. Although London and Paris seemed to have escaped the accusation, Washington does not have a swinging reputation, nor does Canberra, the Swiss make fun of Berne, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even mention Brasilia. Everybody in a capital works hard,

locals expect of them. It is significant also that New Orleans doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a winter in the sense that we know it. One consequence is that clubs can be open to the street so that everybody passing by can hear the music and see the folks enjoying themselves inside. In Ottawa, there may be quite a party going on inside, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never see it through the frosted-over window or hear it through the heavy closed doors. A little more summer would go a long way in this town, as you can learn for yourself by walking through the ByWard Market on a Friday night in June. And by the way, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always a pretty sight. Of course, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no denying that New Orleans showcases its musicians while Ottawa mostly hides its. But it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be necessary to point out that there is more to a city than what it shows its tourists. Visitors see the airport, the downtown, the hotels and restaurants, the clubs. There is more to a cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life than that, but the visitor doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it. Fun doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be people shouting in the streets. It can be people enjoying themselves in each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homes, playing pickup hockey or eating at the not-so-trendy place around the corner. It is interesting that at the same time The

City That Fun Forgot reappeared, a national magazine ranked Ottawa the second-best place to live among large Canadian cities. MoneySense magazine considered such things as unemployment, health care and taxes in making its selection. So thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a broader definition of fun. It includes not getting attacked by extreme weather or muggers or corrupt politicians. It can be the absence of extreme poverty on the streets. For the most part, that would describe our lives here. It may not be your idea of fun, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a start.

Urban design panel now open to public Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Residents can now attend formerly cloistered meetings of the urban design review panel – but only as observers. March 6 marked the first open meeting of the panel, which has been a private setting for a volunteer group of experts in architecture and land-use planning to give advice to developers and designers of major building projects throughout Ottawa. Agendas for upcoming meetings are posted on the panel’s section of ottawa. ca, which can be found by searching for “urban design review panel.” Matthew Ippersiel, the panel’s co-ordinator, said between two and 12 people were in attendance for any given item on the agenda that day, which ranged from the design for a new Dow Honda dealership on Colonnade Road in Nepean to a five-storey hotel in the Kanata town centre, a retail-condo building on Main Street in Old Ottawa East and an 18-storey

residential building on Rochester Street in Little Italy. The panel that sat in March was slimmer – reduced from 10 to seven members, said Dana Collings, program manager of planning and urban design. The goal is to streamline the discussion, which can get bogged down with too many people. Having fewer panel members also makes it possible to offer more time for each developer’s team to describe their project and more time to discuss each project, Collings said. Developer presentations used to have time limits, but presentation times will be unrestricted moving forward. The project’s architect and landscape designer will be required to attend the meetings, which wasn’t the case in the past. The first open meeting on March 6 ran about 5.5 hours, according to Ippersiel. “We were very pleased with how the new meeting format performed in its first panel meeting,” Ippersiel wrote in an email.

“The increase in the time allotted to each file and the smaller panel size noticeably improved the pace of the meeting and permitted more time for discussion between proponents and panel members.” PROCEDURAL CHANGES

The change is made possible by altering the process for developers to submit major rezoning and site plan applications. The developer will still get the confidential pre-consultation meeting with planning staff that he or she is legally entitled to, but the city is axing pre-consultation meetings with the design review panel. Projects won’t be considered by the panel until after a formal rezoning application has been submitted, making it possible for the public to be involved. Collings said the city has received some complaints about the change from people who think the design review will now happen too late in the process to have any effect.

But Collings said increasing the amount of information made available to the public will make it a stronger process. “As a member of the public, you are getting a lot of knowledge early in the application process to be able to input your desires and your

“We were very pleased with how the new meeting format performed in its first panel meeting,” MATTHEW IPPERSIEL

thoughts,” Collings said. “I think from that perspective it’s fantastic.” However, Collings said optional private pre-consultations will be available for developers as the panel transitions to the new system. The changes also “empower” city planners, Collings said. The city has invested in

boosting staff’s knowledge of urban design by making Simon Fraser University’s urban design certificate program available locally. Since the urban design review panel won’t be consulted until later in the process, city planners will be required to call on that new knowledge to provide more direction on urban design in the early stages of the application, Collings said. In their staff reports, planners will also have a chance to provide their own positions on advice given by the urban design review panel. In the past, the panel’s advice has mostly been a mystery, since it was doled out in private meetings and wasn’t required to be recorded on the rezoning report to planning committee. Changes to the way the panel operates will be reviewed informally after a “few” open sessions to see if tweaks should be made, Collings said. The panel reviewed approximately 200 development proposals in its first three years in existence.

A home for those fleeing their own Refugee reveals how Matthew House is helping Ottawa’s newcomers Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

News - Fleeing your home and arriving in a foreign country can’t be easy, but arriving on Matthew House’s doorstep makes a big difference. That’s the story one refugee told of his arrival in Canada along with his pregnant wife, and what it’s like to survive while waiting to be acknowledged as a refugee. Ivan, who preferred not to give his real name, said he arrived in Canada last May, landing in Toronto with his wife, and knowing very little about the country. “Canada is a safe country. It’s tolerant, it’s social. Those are the basic things that we knew and they were very important for us,” said Ivan. However, Ivan and his wife were immediately met with scrutiny, as a border guard stopped them with doubts

about their visa. Though the very first impression of Canada was “kind of stressful,” overall they were excited to have arrived in Canada, he said. Finding themselves in a foreign city, Ivan and his wife first stayed in hotels, knowing that it was too expensive and that they needed somewhere else to stay. Still, finding a lawyer had to be a priority. “Even before coming here, our first goal was to find a lawyer who will assist us with this process (of claiming refugee status),” he said. Though the couple was better prepared than many for the trials of proving their refugee claims, they needed a way to survive until they were cleared. “We had to find some place to rent, and we looked in both Toronto and Ottawa,” said Ivan. With a room available to rent in Ottawa, Ivan and his wife left Toronto to try and wait out the claim process. But it would take longer than they hoped. Their documents were filed quickly, but there was some

Matthew House executive director Miriam Rawson, left, and volunteer Claire Haas stand in front of Matthew House on March 11. problem and Citizenship and Immigration Canada couldn’t issue them their identification documents, he said. “We ran out of money.” Not knowing where to turn, Ivan first heard about Matthew House through the Catholic Immigration Centre. Located in Nepean, Matthew House provides a place for refugees to live and guidance during the refugee claim process. Partnered with Furniture Bank, which is located in

Kanata and helps provide refugees with some volunteer work, job skills and furniture for their own homes, Matthew House is one of a few such houses in Canada. But Ivan didn’t know just what he would find when he got there. “Our idea of shelter is a place where homeless people go and drug addicts, alcoholics, such people, and when we came here, it was, ‘Wow, this is a home.’”

Matthew House is a Christian organization that draws inspiration from the Matthew 25:25 Network, said executive director Miriam Rawson, referring to Bible scripture about welcoming newcomers. With space for up to 10 people at a time, Matthew House has helped more than 100 people from dozens of countries since it started in 2010. “Our mandate really is to help a refugee claimant through their claim process,” said Rawson. That means helping claimants get connected with legal aid, finding forms and getting them to appointments, but above all, providing them with a home. “What we try to do is have a community atmosphere and a family atmosphere so that those people can come in and rather than just feel they are sleeping in a bed, they have a place of belonging and refuge.”That was what Ivan and his wife found, he said. Though they were well prepared for the legal process, help from Matthew House was always there, said Ivan. R0012599237-0320

“Any time when we felt like we needed some help, there was somebody here ready to help us.” Ivan and his wife lived at Matthew House for ten weeks, not just waiting to gain refugee status, but meeting other refugees and members of the community as well. “All the people here were in the same position as we were,” said Ivan. “You see that it’s not only you in this, having a hard time.” However, Ivan and his wife soon received refugee status, and are proud their newborn daughter is Canadian. While Ivan and his growing family have moved into an apartment, rebuilding the life they left is still a daunting task. But he said, “We are very happy and we are ready to go through all this.”As for Matthew House, he said it lived up to what he thought Canada and its people would be like. “We wish you (Matthew House) the best of luck and all the best, because we received only good things from the people there, and from Matthew House. It’s a great example of life here.” Didn’t get your

New CEO for Habitat for Humanity Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Habitat for Humanity has hired a new CEO, but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no stranger to the Habitat organization. New CEO Alexis Ashworth was the executive director of the Halifax Habitat for Humanity for four years before moving to Ottawa to pursue her MBA, and now taking the reins in Ottawa. This year, the organization will benefit from a new fundraiser, called the Build Blitz, put on by the Greater Ottawa Home Buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association and Algonquin College. The fundraiser will see an entire home built in three days in Barrhaven, from April 4 to 6. The home, in the $450,000 price range, Ashworth estimated, will then be sold, with the profits donated to Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region. Homebuilders and contractors are donating their time and supplies to get the project complete, and will work around the clock for 72 hours to get the project finished in time. Habitat for Humanity will also be prominent in OrlĂŠans again this year, as four homes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two semi-detached houses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are to be built. The houses are next to the three homes that were built last year on Nantes Street. The next two houses to be built, to fit four families, will follow the same design and plan as the first houses on Nantes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really designed the homes to fit into the neighbourhood,â&#x20AC;? Ashworth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the community

really came around once they met the families.â&#x20AC;? The families have already been selected to move into the future homes. Two of the families have six children each, while one family has two children, and another a single child. The houses are set up so that a large family splits a building with a smaller family, to allow for a modified unit to accommodate the extra inhabitants. This year will be very similar to 2013, with a spring groundbreaking and building going on until November, when the families will move into the homes. There may also be an additional home built this year on Eve Street in Overbrook. Despite last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s builds, Ashworth isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worried about having enough volunteers as many of the same volunteers and sponsors returning to help out again this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called Habitatitis,â&#x20AC;? Ashworth said, of the people wanting to help out again. There are another two homes scheduled for Nantes in the future, but the planned city road to access the site must be built before that project can move forward. While in Halifax, Ashworth said Habitat increased the number of homes built each year, something she hopes to see happen in Ottawa. Last year, Habitat had more than 100 families apply to purchase a Habitat home in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge demand, so our only restrictions are land and funding,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could be building a lot more.â&#x20AC;?

 

 

                                                   

   

BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

Habitat for Humanity National Capital Regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new CEO, Alexis Ashworth, is settling into the routine at the Ottawa branch of the organization, which is building four homes in OrlĂŠans this year. The organization looks for donations of suitable land when possible, and relies on corporate donations and the Adopt-A-Day program to fund homes, where companies sponsor the build and bring staff to volunteer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a common misconception that Habitat completely funds the homes and gifts them to the families, Ashworth said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are hard working families who purchase the homes,â&#x20AC;? she said. Families put in sweat equity hours in builds and through other fundraisers in lieu of a down payment, and pay off an interest-free mortgage equivalent to the fair market value of their home. The mortgages are adjusted each year based on the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s income.

After school program strikes a chord with downtown kids Cultures in Concert to feature Chinese-inspired music michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - A group of young music students will help launch a new cultureconscious music series in Centretown. The Leading Note Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior OrKidstraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chamber Players will perform at the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cultures in Concert performance on March 21. The students chosen to play are currently completing their final year at the foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free after school music program available for low-income Centretown and Lowertown residents aged five to 18. The evening will be the first in what executive director Tina Fedeski hopes to turn into a series of concerts this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of the concert is to celebrate the diversity of music,â&#x20AC;? she said. The concert will also welcome National Arts Centre orchestra violinistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quartet, the Silflay Quartet, Patti Chan, concert master of the Chinese Orchestra, and NAC orchestra

member Marjolaine Fournier, who will all perform Chineseinspired music at the concert at Trillium Hall, located at the Ottawa Chinese-Canadian Heritage Centre. The organization first struck a chord in Centretown in 2007, welcoming 30 children to learn how to play string and wind instruments. Now the centre has more than 300 students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of the students have stuck with the program,â&#x20AC;? Fedeski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The retention rate is remarkable. This program is about playing together and learning together.â&#x20AC;? She said the school offers many children who would not be able to afford music lessons the opportunity to learn and excel in music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you put an instrument into the hands of a child, they have to learn discipline because they have to go home and practice,â&#x20AC;? Fedeski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here they learn in a group, so they also have to learn patience and compassion and teamwork. They learn the discipline of counting. Many

POTW Article - Think Before You Buy Even in Ottawa, where we are fortunate to have good municipal legislation and an educated and mostly sensitized community, those with the best of intentions can still exacerbate a problem. People are still purchasing dogs from substandard breeders and puppy mills, and in doing so are supporting an inhumane industry and unknowingly becoming a small part of the problem. Others continue to allow their cats to reproduce, resulting in thousands of cats and kittens in need of homes. So, what can be done? Here is a brief list of what you should always consider before buying a pet, courtesy of the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies and the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council: s(AVE YOU BEEN ALLOWED ACCESS TO THE facilities where the dogs are housed?

Over the past seven years, the school has received $140,000 worth of instruments donated from the Ottawa community and the concert is one way the school helps fundraise for its programs. Aside from itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s after school program, the foundation started a two-year, in-school pilot project which expands the music programming from the centre to Cambridge Street Public School and Centennial Public School for grades 1 to 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is going really well,â&#x20AC;? Fedeski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will see how it goes and if it all goes well we would look at expanding.

Raising the Roof started in 2011 as a way to raise money to fix a chronically leaking roof on Watson’s Mill. Now that the roof is fixed, the money raised each year will go to the Mills capital fund. “It’s an old building, so there are lots of renovations that come up,” said organizer Terry McGovern – a musician himself who got tagged to organize Raising the Roof when he was on the mill’s board of

New school funding announced by province Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Seven new Ottawa school renovations or builds were approved at an announcement by Education Minister Liz Sandals on March 6 at Broadview Public School. Among them, was a new elementary school in Avalon, which has been working under the name Avalon 2. I m glad that the need for the school speaks for itself, said John Shea, the Orléans public board trustee. Several parents, such as Wally Peters, who has been helping push for a new Avalon school, attended the announcement. He said he was excited for the new community project, which will benefit his son, who is in Grade 4. Right now, students at Avalon are crammed into portables to accommodate an overflow. The Orléans MPP, Phil McNeely, attended to announce the Orléans funding along with Sandals for the Orléans school. It will hopefully open

in September 2015. Avalon was the board’s top priority, until October. During an Oct. 22 board of trustees meeting, Avalon 2 was bumped from first to seventh place on the public board’s priorities list. The switch moved the new Half Moon Bay elementary school in Barrhaven to the first spot. After that meeting, Shea said he was hopeful the ministry would still consider Avalon 2 the top priority based on the business plan. Funding is given out based on the strength of each project’s business plan, Education Minister Liz Sandals said. “So what that tells you is that the business case put forward by Avalon may have been stronger than some of the other business cases,” Sandals said. “It’s not unusual that when the ministry staff do the scoring and evaluation of the business cases that they will come up with a different priority order than the board has.” She said the board’s priority list comes into play if sev-

eral similar projects scored comparably on the business cases. In this case, Avalon’s business plan was strong enough for the board to approve funding over the board’s third priority, a West Carleton Secondary School addition. BROADVIEW; HALF MOON BAY APPROVED

Two other public board projects were also approve: a rebuild of Broadview Public School and a new elementary school in Barrhaven, in Half Moon Bay. Many parents and students from Broadview stayed after school for the March 6 late afternoon announcement, and broke out in cheers when the rebuild was announced. Students will stay in the current school while the new school is built, said Stephanie Craze, the chair of Broadview’s parent council. She said the school is long overdue for a rebuild. “This team worked tirelessly over the past three years and more to fight for the needs of our kids,” said

Craze, of the people who worked on the Broadview rebuild application. “Thanks to our kids, who were patient with us and have been so understanding when we missed the soccer games and dance rehearsals at dinner time to attend board meetings, write business cases or meet on a Sunday to discuss strategy.” The second brand new public elementary school will be in Barrhaven, in the growing Half Moon Bay community. “I’m ecstatic about the announcement,” said public board trustee Donna Blackburn. “Half Moon Bay was the top priority.” The Half Moon Bay Community Association members have said they expect the suburb to almost double in population by 2016, creating demand for a new school. FRENCH EDUCATION IN DEMAND

The three other boards that received funding were also happy to see projects moving forward. “There’s some good news

for every board,” Sandals said. Pierre-Savard French Catholic high school in Barrhaven is overcrowded, meaning the dreaded portables get heavy use. “We’re thrilled to have the approval of 12 new classrooms; 250 spots for kids,” said Chad Mariage, Barrhaven trustee for the French Catholic Board. “It’s going to solve a lot of the issues going forward. We’re looking at breaking ground in the spring of 2015. We’re very excited.” South Ottawa’s lone funding announcement went to Sainte-Geneviève French Catholic elementary school in Alta Vista. The school will tear down parts of the school built 60 years ago. “The first part of the school was built in the 1950s, and the second in the 1960s, so we’re really tearing down part of the school and building new classrooms,” said Denis Poirier, the French Catholic board chair. “Long overdue and we’re happy, so today’s a good day.”

Kanata will also see the French boards growing, as the public board will add to on the Kanata French public elementary school in Morgan’s Grant. “We’ve been living in portable classrooms for the past several years, so the students will now be in more standardized classrooms,” said Stephane Vachon, superintendent of education for the French public board. PROJECTS APPROVED:

•Addition to the Kanata French public elementary school in Morgan’s Grant •Addition to Pierre-Savard French Catholic high school in Barrhaven •Major retrofit and addition at Sainte-Geneviève French Catholic elementary school in Alta Vista • New public elementary school in Half Moon Bay in Barrhaven • Rebuild of Broadview Public School in west Ottawa • New elementary school, Avalon 2, in Orléans • New Catholic elementary school in Barrhaven

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to choose a summer camp that is adapted to a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests.

Summer camps offer something for everyone Lifestyle - Winter still holds us in its icy grip, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already time to start planning for summer camp. Sleep-away camp is a character-building experience for children who are ready for it. If you want your child to attend camp when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convenient for your summer schedule, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to get busy now and reserve a space early. Because summer camps are increasingly in demand, take the time to do some research and see what kind of camp will best suit your child. There is a lot to choose from, so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to end up sending him or her to just any camp simply because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

one where they still have some places left. It is essential to take into account the interests of your children in order for them to have an enjoyable and enriching experience. There are conventional camps, which offer a wide range of outdoor activities and group games. Other camps offer special interest activities, such as specific sports, visual arts, music, cooking, or even the sciences, including astronomy. The length of stay can also vary. Some parents prefer to stick with day camps or short stays so their children wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get homesick. Others opt to send

their children for a week or more to develop their independence. Children living with a physical or mental disability can also benefit greatly from a stay at a summer camp. Some camps are specifically adapted to meet such needs and have qualified personnel trained to care for them 24 hours a day. Whatever type of camp a family is looking for, it is always advisable to visit it first or speak with camp staff on the phone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this will help you be sure their priority is the well-being of the children and their focus suits the needs and interests of your children.

Lifestyle - Here is a list of questions to ask any camp director before you register. Pick and choose the ones that are relevant to you and your child. â&#x20AC;˘Who do you hire as counsellors? Are they experienced? How old are they? Are they certified in CPR and first aid? Have they undergone a criminal record check? â&#x20AC;˘What are your hours of operation and for pre- and post-camp care? Is there an additional cost for extended hours? â&#x20AC;˘ What is the ratio of campers to counsellors? Ratios of 8:1 are common. A ratio of 10:1 is probably the most you would want. â&#x20AC;˘ Are snacks or a lunch provided? Is the lunch program optional or mandatory? â&#x20AC;˘ What do you do on rainy days? â&#x20AC;˘ Do the children swim every day? What are your rules for supervision at the pool? Is there a wading pool for young campers?

Choose a specialized summer camp for an unforgettable experience Lifestyle - Does your child love the visual arts or maybe expeditions into the wilderness? Is he a sports fanatic? Specialized summer camps will give a child the chance to discover a whole new world, broaden his or herâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knowledge and develop their talents. Specialized camps offer activities for all ages and for all tastes throughout the summer. For a week or more, depending on the organization, young people can participate in exciting programs involving them in enriching activities within a stimulating and friendly environment. Whether it involves excursions into the wilderness, an immersion course in a foreign language, a science or music camp, team sports or outdoor activities, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to suit everyone. Along with these specialized activities, sum-

mer camps also offer events that involve all the campers, outings and cultural visits. The staff also plans alternative activities just in case Mother Nature doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t co-operate. Staffed by professionals and students, specialized camps can also offer young people the opportunity to develop abilities in areas in which they could one day build a career.

Onions were a cure all according to Mrs. Beam

N

o matter what ailed you, there was a treatment for it, right there on the

farm. Only when you were seriously afflicted, did you call old Dr. Murphy, who made house calls, to come out from Renfrew, a twelve-and-a-halfmile trip each way. But you had to be in dire straits indeed, because his fee was $2, or a couple of trussed up freshly plucked chickens and a batch of hot out-of-the oven sticky buns. Of course, if you broke a leg, or suffered some other serious malady, you were taken in to his office, where the fee was only a dollar. Chicken pox, measles, whooping cough, or a very bad cold were not considered serious enough to warrant a call to Dr. Murphy. If Mother couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle it, Mrs. Beam was called in. She had a cure for everything, and most of them centred around the use of onions, a good dose of onions. Mrs. Beam believed in the healing power of onions. It was fortunate we had a good supply, piled in the cellar in bags.

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories And no one questioned Mrs. Beam. Emerson, who hated her onion cures as much as the rest of us, was sure she would put a hex on you if you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t adhere to her advice, which would ultimately lead to your untimely death. And so we endured what became known as Mrs. Beamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cure all: the onion treatment. She also thought it best to ward off future diseases before they started, and of course that meant lots of onions. Not cooked. Oh no. Raw, right out of the bag. Early in the winter, Mother was advised to cut them into quarters, put them in a soup bowl, and put them inches from every bed in the house. Father was the only one who believed this would keep the house free of germs. Mother tried it one day in early win-

ter, and I took a sneezing fit in bed the first night and had to get up, Emerson said he was going to throw up, and Audrey took her next-morning clothes and hung them behind the kitchen door downstairs. That nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chopped up onions were added to the pig feed the next day. But we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to get off that easy. While most people had their chests slathered with Vickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s VapoRub when they got a cold, we wore a little flannelette packet tied around our necks with string, and filled with chopped onions! The first day we had to wear the packets to the Northcote School, we smelled like a pot of Irish stew, and everyone knew Mrs. Beam had been called in for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;treatment.â&#x20AC;? It could have been a social disaster, but Mrs. Beam had

gotten to a few other households which were threatened with some dastardly disease only onions could keep at bay. We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only ones reeking at the Northcote School. However, Miss Crosby finally had her fill of the oneroom school house smelling to high heaven, and she sent a note home with every pupil asking that the children stick to Vickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s VapoRub and leave the onions for the stew-pot. Using Mrs. Beamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treatment at home was one thing, but bringing it into the Northcote School was quite another. There was no thought of staying home from school if you were under the weather. You had to be bed-ridden before you were considered sick enough to miss a day of classes. Passing on your germs never seemed to be a concern. It was assumed, sooner or later, everyone at the Northcote School would eventually get whatever was going around, and you just hung in there and waited for it to happen. The common cold, or what was called the grippe, was never considered a serious ailment. However, measles,

and whooping cough were a different matter. Those two meant missing school until either the rash left you, or you stopped coughing. In either case, Mrs. Beam was called in. And once again, the onion treatment came into play. She would check to make sure a soup bowl of chopped onions was beside your bed if it was the measles that kept you home. But her treatment for the whooping cough bordered on child abuse. She would cut an onion in half, scoop it out, making it into two little boats, fill them with honey, and then pour on a few drops of coal oil. These were put on a pie plate and chucked into the oven of the Findlay Oval, and when they started to bubble, you took a spoon and ate them. The honey was supposed to soothe your throat, the merit of the onions went without saying and the few drops of coal-oil, no one could say what they were good for, but what they did do was cause violent stomach upheaval which was exactly what Mrs. Beam wanted to happen.

That was to get rid of whatever ailed you, in this case the whooping cough. There was no doubt, the cure was far worse than the disease. It got to the point where even Mother doubted the merit of the common onion in treating an illness. Instead, she made sure that just about everything she cooked for our meals had a good dose of onions chopped up in it. No longer was there any such thing as a fried egg without onions, boiled turnips had onions added to the pot, and onions in a cream sauce appeared at least once or twice a week. Father thought anything Mrs. Beam said, or what she handed out as treatment, was right up there with scripture. Just like the time she said she had a cure for lumbago, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another story waiting to be told. Interested in an electronic version of Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books?

Anne Lefebvre Calabogie Ski Racing Club

Sports - The past couple of weekends have been the perfect storm of race action for the Calabogie Ski Racing Club. On Feb. 22, the U12s raced Kombi at Edelweiss, the U14s capped off Speed Camp with a giant slalom race at Mont Ste. Marie, and the U16s tackled slalom at Camp Fortune. This was followed up by the U14s racing at Mount StLouis Moonstone near Barrie for the U14 Alpine Provincials as part of the Ontario Winter Games Feb. 28 to March 2. Not to be outdone, the U10s travelled to Vorlage March 1 for a Kombi. All of these races cap off a busy season, as the athletes prepare to launch into the season championships. In the U10 Kombi, Wyatt Campbell-Brunke of Renfrew was once again undefeated. Noah Matthews of Calabogie turned in a couple of good runs to come seventh and Thys Blok of White Lake pulled off his season’s best

Alex Kerr speeding over a jump in Speed Camp. with his first top-10 result – eighth. Little Riley Cotter of Ottawa powered his way to 23rd. Louise Stonham of Arnprior was another top-tenner, finishing seventh, and Tori Cotter of Ottawa was just outside, in 13th. Nicole Duff of Pembroke came 21st. The U12 Kombi turned into

a stars-on-ice performance – with plenty of thrills and spills. Sam Alexander of Carp knifed through the ice for victory. Wesley Matthews of Calabogie slid out on the sheer course (like many of his competitors) but hung on and managed to finish 18th de-

spite two falls. Aidan Maclean of Manotick and Ryan Geddie of Kanata also hung in there, finishing 20th and 26th, as did Tess Schreider of Kingston in 24th. But the slippery course claimed James Gaffney of Deep River, Carson Lefebvre of Calabogie, Jeremy Van Grunsven of Odessa

The U14s capped off their Mont Ste. Marie Speed Camp with a giant slalom race, gathering excellent results. Sam Duff of Pembroke flew to first, with Jack Alexander of Carp close behind in fourth. Tyler Lefebvre of Calabogie laid down two speedy runs for 14th, and Connor Allen of Manotick was 18th. Liam Maclean of Manotick, Jack Hamilton of Burnstown and Aiden Keuninckx of Perth carved into 29th, 37th, and 41st. The girls saw podium action too. Sophia Tan of Kanata flew down the hill and landed in third, with Lauren Campbell-Brunke of Renfrew right behind in fifth. Alyssa Steggall of Stittsville, Emma Schreider of Kingston and Jessica Earle of Greely put together good races, coming in 25th, 26th, and 36th. Alexa Loudiadis of Ottawa was sitting in first after the initial run but crashed on the second. Alex Kerr also put

down one good run. The U14s travelled to Mount St-Louis Moonstone for U14 Provincials Feb. 28 to March 2. Everyone skied extremely well and loved the Ontario Winter Games pomp and circumstance.Sam Duff nailed his races, placing first in the Slalom and third overall. Other top-20 finishers included Jack Alexander, Alexa Loudiadis, Sophia Tan and Lauren Campbell-Brunke. The U16s skied a doubleheader: Saturday slalom and Sunday giant slalom. Alex Duff of Pembroke DSQed in the slalom but had redemption the next day with a fifthplace ribbon in giant slalom. It was a similar story for Travis Reid of Kingston – DNF in slalom but a 24th finish in giant slalom. Connor Maclean of Manotick wrote the same tale, backwards: a solid 16th (personal best) in slalom but a DSQ in giant slalom. Aylen Ferguson of Carp skied well both days, with 11th- and ninth-place finishes, while Jenna Wissing was 24th in slalom.
