city`s development are front and centre during the celebrations. Watson says City Hall will reach out in the fall to the areas of the city beyond the core to make sure that all areas of the city participate and benefit from the Canada 150 celebrations when the country reaches that milestone in two years. “We want to see how we can get all the communities involved,” Watson told a very well-attended Greely Com-

While communities and neighbourhoods are putting the final touches on their upcoming Canada Day celebration plans, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson is thinking ahead to the big party that will mark Canada`s 150th birthday in 2017. And he wants to make sure that the rural communities that surround the city`s core and their importance to the

munity Association annual general meeting June 10. He said in the fall he expects to bring together community associations and groups for brainstorming sessions on how all communities can take part in the Canada 150 celebrations, especially as a way to showcase the history of the rural lifestyle of communities that make up more than 80 per cent of the city`s land mass. “We want everyone to celebrate an important year, not just the downtown,” Watson said. “We have to make sure everyone benefits from 2017 and Canada`s 150th birthday.” While Watson made clear that he appreciates the importance of rural communities in the city such as Greely to the fabric of the city as a whole, he told those at the meeting that he is not prepared to make empty promises when concerns about roads and traffic were raised from the floor during a question and answer session at the meeting.

Farmers eager to give city folk inside look at a working farm Brian Dryden

brian.dryden@metroland.com

It’s not often that city folk get a chance to wander around an actual working farm, but that is exactly what will be happening when the McDiarmid Family Dairy Farm in Osgoode invites all comers to tour their operation on June 27 as part of a province-wide Open Farm Days celebration. The McDiarmid farm is the only one in the greater Ottawa area that will be participating in the event that is being held to mark the 50th anniversary of the Dairy Farmers of Ontario. “This is the first time we are doing this,” explained Laural Adams of the Dairy Farmers of Ontario. “It’s to mark the anniversary. If it is successful some farms may want to continue doing it in the future, but right now it’s just for the 50th anniversary.” Ottawa South area farmer Peter Ruiter said the idea behind Open Farm Days is to allow people who may have never set foot on a farm to see how a modern working farm operates in 2015. “It’s a good day for anybody coming from the city to get on to a

real working farm and see what we do,” he said. “It’s more about promoting the reality that farmers are people, that it is not just a job but a lifestyle,” Ruiter said. He said at the McDiarmid Farm, 7121 Belmeade Road, there will be numerous work stations and activities such as a butter making demonstration, manned by farmers that can answer questions visitors may have about a farm’s operations. “We’re just trying to promote that it’s a great industry that is very important to this area,” Ruiter said. “It’s also important that consumers see how milk and other products are actually made and know that it is all 100 per cent safe.” Along with getting an inside view on how milk is produced, butter is made, what farmers feed their cows and a petting zoo for kids to enjoy, there will be free pizza, milk and ice cream available to the first 2,000 visitors. Open Farm Days at the McDiarmid Family Dairy Farm in Osgoode runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 27. Brian Dryden/Metroland You can learn more about the Farmer Peter Ruiter, with baseball cap, leans up against a cow outside Ottawa City Hall June 4 during the city’s event at the Open Farm Days Face- recent rural expo. Ruiter says the upcoming Open Farm Days event June 27 at the McDiarmid Family Dairy Farm book event page. in Osgoode is an opportunity for city folk to see what a real working farm is like.

“If we are going to be true leaders, you have to be willing to say no,” Watson said, adding he knows roads and traffic are a big issue in many rural communities. “It boils down to money. There are congestion problems throughout the city,” he said. ”In other areas of the city I get people gripping there`s too much going to rural roads. “I can raise your taxes 15 per cent to get all these things done, but I don`t think you want that. We know we have to do more, but there are so many competing interests. ” Watson, who attended the GCA AGM with Osgoode ward Coun. George Darouze, was well received by residents who attended the meeting, and drew some hearty laughs when he called Darouze his “snowmobile coach.” Watson was seriously injured in a snowmobiling accident organized by Darouze this past winter. Bruce Brayman, who

was once again elected without opposition to be the GCA`s president for another year, was appreciative that Watson and Darouze attended the AGM at the Greely Community Centre, and called for more residents of the community to get involved in the association this year. “We have a dearth of volunteers, we really need all - old and young - to get involved,” Brayman said, adding that a strong community association gives the community a louder voice at City Hall. “We can be a voice to City Hall,” Brayman said. “We have an impact. The more voices we have, the more impact we will have. We don`t always get our way, but we have a voice we can put forward.” Brayman said he is optimistic that the GCA will see membership growth this coming year as the association now has a facebook page to augment its website, and is trying to be more interactive with the community through social media.

small businesses create summer jobs. Poilievre told the Manotick News previously that MPs have a lot of leeway as to how to distribute the funds within their ridings, and he prefers to gear the money toward non-profit operations. “In my area, I discourage doing it for private business or government,” he said. “I prefer to support organizations that are non-profit and in the community. “Creating summer jobs for students benefits not only youth and employers, but also the economy in Nepean-Carleton and across Canada,” he said.

More than 80 young people in the federal riding of NepeanCarleton will be cashing a paycheque this summer through a government funded summer job program, Employment and Social Development Minister Pierre Poilievre announced June 8. Of the 84 positions involving 48 organizations to be funded through the Canada Summer Jobs program in the riding this year, many are in the Manotick and surrounding rural communities that make up a large part of the riding. Ten positions with Watson’s

Funds through the Canada Summer Jobs program are to help non-profit organizations, public sector employers and

Mill and the Rideau Township Historical Society had been announced at a press conference previously in Manotick, but the full list of organizations benefiting from the program also includes the Manotick Cooperative Nursery School (one position), Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (seven positions), Osgoode Township Museum (one position), Osgoode Youth Association (two positions), and the Manotickbased Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind (one position). Most of the organizations receiving funding to hire summer students are non-profits or community groups that are grateful for any help they can

They were rockin’ at La Piazza in support of Roger’s House over the Dickinson Days weekend in Manotick June 5-7, and business was good. The man who is responsible for the ongoing relationship between the Manotick business and Roger’s House is thrilled with the support for the Rock for Roger’s House fundraiser that has developed over the past few years. “It was very successful, everything went really well,” said Frank D’Addario, owner of La Piazza Courtyard and Lounge off of Main Street in the village. “It was a really good turnout, we had at least 300 to 400 people each day,” he said. “We had 20 bands going and everyone enjoyed it and had a good time.” Exactly how much was raised in support of Roger’s House at the rock shows held over three days is still being added up as the concerts are not the only fundraising effort by La Piazza in support of the residential hospice for kids and their families. This year was the sixth annual Rock For Roger’s House concerts at La Piazza, but the business’s efforts to financially support Roger’s House are not limited to the musical extrava-

ganza. For the second year, La Piazza also held a fundraising golf tournament which was on Thursday, June 11. The golf tournament had 100 golfers signed up, and along with a silent auction at the event, it too will put some much appreciated financial support into the hands of Roger’s House. “What we do is take what is raised from the golf tournament and add that to what we raised at the concerts,” D’Addario said. “It was a success. Once we have everything together, we will make a presentation,” D’Addario explained. Roger’s House is an eight-bed paediatric residential hospice on the grounds of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario for families with children/youth who are living with a life limiting illness. It provides a home-like environment and access to a paediatric palliative care program. Since Roger’s House opened in 2006, it has had approximately 2,300 admissions and served more than 280 families. Marion Rattray, manager of the CHEO Palliative Care Program and Roger’s House, said events such as those hosted by La Piazza are vital to the ongoing work of Roger’s House. “We get a lot of support from the community. We wouldn’t exist without it,” Rattray said.

A Manotick chiropractor has given up the licence to practise he has had since 1977, after he was accused of professional misconduct with a female patient. Dr. Dieter Hardtke, who in an agreement filed with the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO) in March said he is “owner, operator and chiropractor at Manotick Chiropractic Centre and the Winchester Chiropractic Clinic in Winchester”, agreed to give

for V.R.’s therapy and counselling.” Hardtke’s licence had been suspended in 2007 after he had previously been found guilty of misconduct towards another female patient. On the RateMDs.com Internet review board, Hardtke’s interaction with patients has been commented on previously. One posting on the RateMDs site, which bills itself as a place to find doctors you can trust, claims he was “very inappropriate” and that “female patients need to stay away from him.”

A CCO notice for a discipline hearing, the College alleged Hardtke “sexually abused a female patient known as ‘V.R.’” The misconduct charges were stayed at the end of March, after he agreed to give up his licence. He also agreed to pay the College $5,000 in costs by Dec. 31, 2015, and reimburse the College “any money it pays

Week In RevIeW Saturday, June 6 to Friday, June 12 It’s wonderful to see so much Community spirit and a sincere desire to help others in Osgoode Ward. I was very pleased to attend a number of events over the weekend and was extremely proud of the young people in our community who are trying to make a difference. Whether it was through the Lemonade Stands in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation or watching the Cadets in their Annual Parade, it is great to see the next generation getting involved. Thank you to their families and our community leaders for leading by example.

The Greely Community Association Annual General Meeting was held on Wednesday evening and I would like to extend my thanks to Chair Bruce Brayman for the invitation. It was also an honour to have MP Poilievre and Mayor Watson take time out of their very busy schedules to participate in the meeting. It was a nice opportunity to provide updates for the Greely Community as well as listen to concerns from residents. Thank you for your participation.

There are two other events that I would like to highlight this week and for those who follow me on twitter you may already be aware. On Tuesday, I was invited to a United Way Luncheon with special guest Peter Mansbridge. I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Mansbridge and speak with other community leaders about important issues in our City. Later that evening, I attended the inaugural Rural Networking Event in Osgoode. This business event was a great way to meet business owners from our community as well as from other parts of Ottawa’s south end. As this evening was very well attended, I think we can look forward to future meetings and networking events.

Scott Moffatt said at McCordick and Pollock roads in North will slow down traffic and reduce the number of serious collisions. Right now, the intersection is backwards: drivers on McCordick Road are forced to stop at Pollock, even though McCordick has the major flow of PuBlIC MeeTIngS traffic.

the stop signs on the other side, which just adds to the confusion,” Moffatt said. “We’re just going to stop halfway and keep it a four-way stop.” There are only a handful of houses in the area anyway, Moffatt said, and they’re happy to leave it at a four-way, which should make the intersection a bit safer. It’s an especially timely change since a nearby home on Pollock will begin its annual theatre and swim camps in a few weeks. Moffatt said the summer camps create a lot of local traffic, and the new four-way intersection will help keep kids safe. He said McCordick has gotten busier in that area since it was paved. The 80 km/h road provides a direct route from Kemptville into Kanata, since it links Eagleson Drive and eventually March Road.

Deaf to the rule of law

I

t is troubling, if not surprising, that federal civil servants would have such distain for the law that they would place the interests of their department above the law, but that’s exactly what Robinson Village residents have discovered. The neighbourhood, which sits across the Rideau River from the Canadian Police Information Centre at 1200 Vanier Pkwy., has been subjected to a barrage of low-frequency noise since 2012 when new rooftop chillers were installed. Following a series of studies that determined the units were generating enough of a racket that they violated the city’s noise bylaws, staff at Public Works and Government Services Canada determined a cheap fix that wasn’t adequate to solve the problem was all that was needed. That’s what was deemed suitable by federal civil servants: a token gesture. This response, to install metal hoods above the chiller units at a cost of around $65,000, was chosen over several that would have fixed the problem yet at a cost of more than $400,000. While this may appear to be prudent management of public funds, it should be seen as a

disregard for the law. No arm of the government is above the law. No civil servant, no politician, no judge – no one, really – should think that they are above the law in a country governed by the rule of law. If a study commissioned by public works identified several ways to fix the problem, which was a violation of the law, and the problem wasn’t fixed – as shown by a follow-up study – doing nothing isn’t the solution. There also shouldn’t be a need for the intervention of the local member of Parliament, which still hasn’t solved the problem. In fact during a meeting between Ottawa-Vanier MP Mauril Belanger and Public Works staff in October, an official said the department considered the issue resolved, despite the units still generating noise in excess of the bylaw. This sort of distain should not be tolerated. Ottawa has enough to deal with when political decisions affect things like light rail routes and monument placements that it shouldn’t need to put up with a lack of respect for our laws.

We’re learning the art of slowing down

I

t is common these days to hear alarm expressed over the aging of the Canadian population. There are going to be too many old folks, the argument goes, and that will put undue stress on the health care system and cause other problems, such as people who don’t move quickly enough for you at intersections. To say nothing of all that Beatles music piped in to the senior citizens’ residences. But there are benefits to the aging of the population, such as the availability of all those grandparents as babysitters. And there is another benefit that not enough people have looked at: the world is slowing down a bit and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

cities are full of cafes where people pause. You don’t see people hurrying along the street with styrofoam cups of coffee in their hands. They stop and sit down to drink it. That art, the art of pausing, had seemed to be lost to North Americans. It seemed incompatible with the ethic of “I want it all and I want it now.” But the art of pausing may be returning. The proliferation of coffee shops is both cause and effect. Think of how many more places there are to have coffee than there were 20 years ago. We are developing a coffee culture and it’s hard to find anything to regret about that. For one thing, it means there are places other than bars for people to stop and chat.

people are hurrying, which can’t do any harm. It might even help, since not hurrying probably prolongs life, thereby increasing the supply of old people. Looking at those tables at the mall and in neighbourhood coffee shops, you’ll see lots of those people. One of the first things retired people discover is they have time for coffee, they have time to spend chatting with their friends. What do they talk about? Well, it could be pensions, inevitably. It could be the whereabouts of old friends. It could be the funny things that used to happen at the office. And it could be how fast everyone seems to be going these days. Whatever they are chatting about, the big thing is they don’t have to grab a coffee on the run and slurp it in the car. They can stop. So they do, and it has become contagious.

Earl Armstrong to be paved all the way to High Rd Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

Earl Armstrong Road will be paved between Bowesville and High roads next year after traffic volumes have skyrocketed with the opening of Vimy Memorial Bridge. The number of cars using the 1.4-kilometre gravel stretch of Earl Armstrong to get from Albion Road to the bridge over the Rideau River has jumped between 155 and 368 per cent at peak hours, according to traffic operations manager Phil Landry. That means more maintenance to keep the gravel road up to snuff, and more complaints to the city asking for it to be paved. According to a staff report, Public Works and Infrastructure Services received six inquiries about the road during the 18 months leading up to the bridge’s opening. But in only 10 months after the July 2014 opening, those inquiries have jumped from

four to eight to Public Works and from two to six complaints to Infrastructure Services. All of the inquiries to Infrastructure Services were requests to have the road repaved, staff said. Right now it costs about $4,700 a year to grade the road, and another $6,500 to control the dust, according to staff. It’s unclear how much it will cost to pave the segment next year – it still needs to be approved as part of the 2016 budget – but Landry confirmed the road will only be getting a simple hard surface; the road will not be rebuilt to be able to withstand heavy trucks, for example. “The substructure isn’t suitable for trucks,” Landry said. “But vehicles will be able to go on it, so it may divert more vehicles (from other busy roads).” That’s a concern for Manotick resident Klaus Beltzner, who has been pushing the city to do a regional truck study to help more trucks access the new bridge.

Emma Jackson/Metroland

It’s hardly a pleasant ride for the dozens of extra cars who take an unpaved part of Earl Armstrong Road each day to access the Vimy Memorial Bridge further west. City staff plan on paving the section next year. “It’s a disgrace to have a four-lane bridge not carrying its share of trucks and continuing to burden Manotick’s narrow streets,” Beltzner said. “Paving it helps the extra car traffic but it does nothing for the trucks.” Many heavy trucks use Bridge Street through Manotick’s village core to access Highway 416 on the other side. The Vimy Memorial Bridge was supposed to help

alleviate some of that truck traffic, but so far Bridge Street still has more than its share, Beltzner said. The solution is testing local roads, like Limebank between Mitch Owens and Rideau, to see if they are suitable to carry heavy trucks – and then they should be added to the city’s truck route, Beltzner said. That doesn’t seem to be the point of the project, though. Osgoode Coun. George Da-

rouze said his focus right now is on getting residents where they need to go, not fixing the truck problem. “The trucks exist, but at this moment I really want to try and help our residents and release stress off them,” he said. Albion Road going north in the mornings is very slow, especially at the Leitrim intersection, and other northern arterials like Prince of Wales Drive on the west side of the

river are also packed with cars. Paving Earl Armstrong will help cars disperse to use a wider range of arterials – Limebank Road, for example. “At least we’ll give them an option to go to Vimy Bridge,” Darouze said. “It will help in the moving of congestion of the people going to the west … it’s not a permanent solution but it’s an interim solution.” Gloucester South-Nepean Coun. Michael Qaqish agreed; he said Earl Armstrong is a ‘missing link’ in the traffic network on the east side. “Right now the west connect is very good but6 in the east where do they go?” he said. “(Paving the road) will provide a better opportunity for traffic flow; it will help divert people to different places.” Qaqish noted that he continues to push for widened lanes on Bank Street and Prince of Wales, and, in the long term, the extension of Earl Armstrong over to Bank.

The CityFolk festival is moving to Lansdowne this year in the hopes of making the event more accessible. Van Morrison is set to headline the festival, which will run from Sept. 16 to 20.

Glebe residents who live near Lansdowne will be able to sleep soundly this fall during the CityFolk festival, as concerts will wrap up by 10 a.m., the event’s organizer said. Mark Monahan, the festival’s executive and artistic director, said he is aware of the fact the festival will need to adhere to certain noise levels in its new location. “It’s always a marriage between event organizers and residents whenever you have a site that’s located in a downtown residential area,” he said in an interview. Over the last four years, the festival has been held in Hog’s Back Park, but Monahan said the site never reached its full potential because of accessibility and transit issues. “Hog’s Back (Park), although it was a beautiful park, was not known as a stop on the festival circuit,” he said. “People had trouble getting their head around where it was.” This year marks the first time the event will be held in Lansdowne Park under the new banner of CityFolk. Monohan said the move to Lansdowne has presented the festival with the opportunity to become more accessible as it is easier to get to via public transit. “Moving to Lansdowne is a big deal for the

festival,” he said. “It’s going to launch us into the mainstream of Ottawa’s festival scene.” Monahan, who is part of the team that manages the Ottawa Bluesfest, started managing the folk fest in 2011 and has seen it grow in attendance every year since. Organizers expect more than 50,000 will come to see this year’s “blockbuster line-up,” which is capped off by a performance by Van Morrison. Organizers announced the festival’s initial line up on June 2. Other acts that will take to the stage at Lansdowne Park include Wilco, UB40, the Tubes and Of Monsters and Men. The festival has diverted away from its folk roots in recent years, attracting poppy headliners to draw in a younger crowd. Despite the big-name draws in this year’s line-up, Monahan said the festival still has plenty for diehard folk fans, including performances by the Barr Brothers, Lisa LeBlanc and Frank Fairfield. The retooled festival will have two adjacent stages in a new part of Lansdowne Park called the “Great Lawn.” Another stage will be in the restored Horticulture building and free programming will be held in the Aberdeen Pavilion.

also has a full-size 3D printer, which is so popular that there is currently a sixmonth wait to use it. The van will also be stocked with books and other materials. For that reason, the hightech Bookmobile may also entice reticent readers to check out some of the reading materials lining the walls of the vehicle, which will be available for borrowing. “It’s a great way to introduce people to the library,” Tierney said.

Ottawa’s library is taking technology on the road with the launch of its new mini Bookmobile. A 3D printer, drone copter and futuristic music makers are just some of the hightech gadgets that will be rolling into neighbourhoods as part of the library’s new $130,000 mini Bookmobile. “Libraries are changing,” Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney said after the new van made its first stop at the Hunt Club-Riverside Park Community Centre at 3310 McCarthy Rd., marking the launch of the service on June 3. “It’s not about books anymore. You have to stay with the times otherwise you’re going to turn into (failed video chain) Blockbuster.” The pint-sized vehicle, which is much smaller than the library’s big Bookmobile buses, will mostly make the rounds at special events, such as at Tierney’s Celebrate Summer fair at the Earl Armstrong Arena on June 20. “Imagine this thing there with a drone copter and they’re flying it around and kids are making stuff, and we have a reading area,” he said. “Well, that’s a good way to bring kids in and show them there’s a lot more than just books at the library. “Kids like Chromebooks. Kids like Wi-Fi.” Library card holders won’t be permitted to check out the electronic toys and take them home, but the public will get the chance to spend a few minutes with the items – printing out a small 3D object or piloting a drone, just to see how they work. The mini Bookmobile will give people a taste of what’s available at the various library branches and online, such as electronic magazine subscriptions, and Hoopla, the library’s new digital movie, TV and music-streaming service, said Tierney, adding that the Nepean Centrepointe branch

Party time at Dickinson Days Erin McCracken/Metroland

In the photos clockwise from top are: What’s a beautiful day in Manotick without at least trying to hook a fish? Manotick residents Talal Afifi, 9, left, his dad, Khaldoun, and Talal’s friend, Torin Wyatt, 8, try to catch fish from the Rideau River behind Watson’s Mill on June 6. The bridge proved a quiet spot away from the large crowds that gathered for Dickinson Days celebrations June 5 to 7. Friends Nick Sangster, 15, of Manotick, left, Brodie Crowhurst, 16, of Metcalfe, and Cameron Campbell, 15, also of Manotick, sip icy treats under sunny skies in Dickinson Square on June 6 during the Dickinson Days community celebration. Georgia Robinson, a student with Denise Smith Dance Studios in Manotick, performs a dance routine on the main stage in Dickinson Square. Manotick resident Tom Kelley helps his daughter, five-year-old Abby, try stilt-walking, one of the heritage crafts and activities that families could try on the front lawn of Watson’s Mill. Dancers with Denise Smith Dance Studios in Manotick perform a tap dance routine before a large crowd under the big tent. Garry Montgomery, of Malakoff, near North Gower, left, explains how his gasoline engine-powered oat crusher works to Dennis Blonde Blonde of Blackburn Hamlet, Orleans resident Dennis Sprott and Manotick resident Clive Ozard. Montgomery restored the machine, which was purchased in 1915 by his great aunt and uncle for their dairy farm, which Montgomery now owns and lives on. Dickinson Days is an annual weekend festival commemorating the birthday of the founder of the Village of Manotick. 20

Bringing medical marijuana out of the weeds Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

If Gulwant Bajwa had known medical marijuana was an option when he developed a painful cancer two decades ago, he would have tried it. He would have tried anything. Now, the 53-year-old is hoping to help other suffering Canadians navigate the murky world of medical marijuana with National Access Cannabis, an information centre where doctors can prescribe weed. The clinic will open an office in Hintonburg on June 23. It’s not a dispensary; there’s “not a speck” of pot on site, according to the new CEO, who left his job in Health Canada’s medical marijuana program to join the company two months ago.

treat your illness. Licensed producers develop a variety of strains that offer differing levels of THC (the ingredient that makes you high) and cannabidiol (the part with the most medical benefits). Someone with late-stage cancer may need a high-THC strain as a painkiller, while a person with schizophrenia needs high levels of cannabidiol. A centre like National Access Cannabis will help patients figure out exactly what they need, Bajwa said. PROCESS

The centre will be staffed with information specialists, a pharmacist

and several physicians (although depending on their schedules the doctors may be Skyped in). All the staff have a high degree of knowledge when it comes to medical marijuana, Bajwa said, and will help guide patients through Canada’s system. Membership is $99 for the year, and $50 to renew – that’s how the clinic will make its money. For now, it will not collect referral fees to send patients to certain producers, Bajwa said, although some clinics have been doing that elsewhere in the country. When you first enter the store, a greeter will sit down with you to start a file; you’ll have to give detailed information about the ailment you’re trying to fix. Next, the staff will contact your family doctor to confirm

the ailment is a real and documented thing – this is to weed out any cheaters. Once the basics have been established, you’ll meet privately with a physician either in person or via Skype for an in-depth interview and a once-over to determine if weed really is the right solution. If you pass inspection, the doctor will issue a medical document outlining the dose and strain recommended to treat your ailment, and an on-site pharmacist will make sure it won’t adversely react with other drugs you’re taking. And then you’re given a list of licensed producers and invited to choose where you’d like to order your supply. Bajwa stressed this isn’t an easy

National Access Cannabis, which has adopted the motto Let’s Talk Answers, is not trying to undermine the legal medical marijuana system. On the contrary, its aim is to help patients who are thinking about using cannabis to access it legally, safely and responsibly, Bajwa said. “I do not want to see Canadians have to go to an illicit source. I want them to go to a legal source of supply,” said Bajwa. “That way they get a safe medicine, they get a medicine that is produced under some very strict rules and regulations, rather than going to a street source where you don’t know what you’re getting.” Medical marijuana is fast becoming a popular alternative to pills in Canada, and has been shown to help a range of ailments, from chronic pain to epilepsy. Health Canada recently overhauled its program and is now licensing commercial producers to grow marijuana for prescription use. There are currently 19 such producers across the country, including one in Smiths Falls and another that just opened in Gatineau. While that has improved access somewhat, Bajwa said the medical marijuana system in Canada is so confusing – compounded by physicians who are uncomfortable or unknowledgeable when it comes to prescribing cannabis – that he doesn’t blame people in pain for resorting to the street. But buying pot in an alleyway puts you at risk, he said. Street weed could be laced with other drugs, for one thing, or packed full of pesticides not fit for human consumption. It’s also not necessarily the type of cannabis you need to

process, nor should it be. He said the doctors will monitor a patient’s drug use just like any other prescription. If you’re prescribed one gram a day and you get a month’s supply, you’d better not be asking for more after 20 days, he said. And if you’re too nervous to enter the store in broad daylight, he said staff will make arrangements to meet with you after hours. The storefront is the company’s second in Canada; the original is in Victoria. But the headquarters have shifted to Ottawa so staff can be close to the policy makers shaping alternative medicine in Canada, Bajwa said. The store at 1111 Wellington St. will celebrate its grand opening at 10:30 a.m. on June 23.

Grandchild #1 is on its way  

T

wenty-six days. That’s how long I had to keep this secret. The little mama-tobe wanted to wait until her first trimester was almost over to tell everyone but now the word is out. I’m going to be a grandma! Anastasia was quite insistent that our annual Mother’s Day brunch would be held at her house this year. Normally we do Merrickville and this year we thought a picnic might be nice but rain was in the forecast so Suzy Homemaker jumped on the opportunity to have it at her little bungalow. Her band of hunting dogs had to be banished to the outside to fit all the people in. When we were all assembled, Annie handed me, her mother-in-law, her grandma and her aunt a card. I opened mine and saw it said “Happy Mother’s Day, Grandma.” I looked at Annie, who was peering at me with those big brown eyes that got her the nickname Tweety Bird when she was a baby. “You gave me the wrong card, honey,” I whispered, giggling. I don’t know how many times I have bought a card because of the beautiful design on the cover or script inside, only later to notice that the greeting on the front was slightly off. “No, I didn’t,” Annie said with a little smirk. “Ohhhhhh!!!!!!” I didn’t even open the card. So happy. No words. Just scooped her up off the floor with a big hug. Now, Annie and her hubby Andrew are young, so it isn’t like they have been trying for ages or anything, but they have been married nearly three years. And they did raise that litter of lab pups last winter. I guess that helped them to imagine

Complimentar y

The Accidental Farmwife introducing a baby into their busy lives. I’m looking forward to helping with this new baby; the first grandchild on both sides of our family. It won’t have a typical upbringing for a 2015 baby, according to its parents. Neither one of them is on Facebook or any other form of social media. They do own cell phones but they do not cease breathing or functioning normally if they accidentally leave their phone at home for the day. Their favourite activity is hunting. When they aren’t hunting they are chopping wood, or swimming in the river with their dogs, or helping someone to build or move something. They are on a baseball league and they rarely miss Sunday dinner with the family. I think they have their priorities straight. I’m a young grandma, but not quite as young as my mother was when I had my first child. It’s great – I should still have the energy and strength to look after a wee one, so I can help my daughter out whenever she needs it. I’m looking forward to being the go-to person for babysitting, living just ten minutes away. Of course, I’ll share with the other grandparents, and I’ll try not to make a pest of myself. The topic of discussion lately has been the gender of the new baby. We went shopping on the weekend, the little

mama and I, and wandered into a baby store. It will be so much easier when we know the sex. Baby clothes are the icing on the delicious fat baby cake. I can’t wait to start buying them. But even though I know that any girl born to those two will be raised knowing how to drive a tractor, hit a baseball and shoot a gun, I still have trouble justifying dressing her in plaid and denim at the beginning. And if it’s a boy, I don’t want the frilly dresses I’m eyeing to be left unused in the closet. So I have to be patient again. For at least another twentysix days. Next month the parents-tobe are looking forward to a gender-revealing ultrasound. We never had such a thing when I was pregnant. I was allowed one ultrasound per pregnancy and my doctor said if we were meant to know the sex, there would be a window on the mama’s belly. Excuse me while I go and google “gender reveal parties” on Pinterest. This baby is due December 31st. Just ike its mama, who didn’t arrive until January 11 – and Daddy was born January 12. I guess we know what we are doing this coming holiday season. Watching and waiting for a very special gift to arrive.   theaccidentalfarmwife. blogspot.com dianafisher1@gmail.com

St. Mark students win for Do it for Daron project Daron for their civics and careers class. They were then chosen to present to a group of Grade 8 students and a panel of judges including teachers and peers. After competing against four other groups, they won five thousand dollars for Do It For Daron. “It felt great,� said Lexi Carolan. The group called the Do It For Daron’s communication assistant to tell her the good news. The students attended a social June 11 honouring all donors where their cheque was presented. They won the money through Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI).

In particular, the money will go to Is it Just Me? sessions, workshops on various mental health topics hosted at The Royal; a free app called Healthy Minds which has users indicate how they are feeling and offers coping tips and strategies; and a suicide research prevention chair that is expected to cost a million dollars will see the bulk of the five grand.

“There is always somebody who’s willing to help you get through it. You are never in it alone.� Lexi Carolan

Darryl O’Brien, a guidance counsellor at St. Mark and one of the judges, said participating in the YPI program teaches students that communities thrive on volunteerism. “It isn’t just doing 40 hours of student service for your high school career, it’s something you can do for the rest of your life ‌ if you got nice things going on your life ‌ share with people.â€? The students said visiting the Do It For Daron offices at The Royal showed them philanthropy makes a difference in a community but Do It For Daron still needs support.

Terrorist attack callers were calm, matter-of-fact Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

No call is predictable for a paramedic communications officer who takes 911 calls. The lack of predictability is something they get used to. But the call on Oct. 22, 2014, when a man said a soldier had been shot at the War Memorial downtown still came as a shock. “My caller stated that there had been a terrorist attack at the cenotaph and that there was a solider on the ground and people were doing CPR,” said Marie Larocque, the paramedic call centre worker who took the first 911 call about the shooting. Calls come in to the main 911 line, and are then filtered depending on the emergency to the correct department. Larocque works with the paramedics, and receives calls that need paramedic attention. Larocque’s job that day was to stay calm and collect as much information from the

caller as possible, while preparing to dispatch paramedics. She wasn’t able to stop and make a panicky phone call to friends or family working downtown, as many Ottawa residents did when they first heard the news. She had to focus in on the call and be a reassuring voice on the end of the line. “You just go into almost a robot mode,” Larocque said. “You’ve got a job to do. You have to keep your own personal feelings and emotions out of it.” She said the caller told her he saw the shooter fire a shot at the solider, who was lying on the ground as strangers performed CPR. Larocque, an Orléans resident, said the caller went into great detail about the shooter, where he went and what happened. “I remember fairly accurately what he did say,” she said. “He told me that the guy approached and that he shot at two soldiers; the one went

down and the other took off on foot, and that CPR had been started by bystanders.” Normally she would start talking the caller through how to perform CPR, but since someone else was already performing CPR she began gathering other information about the scene to pass on to police and find out what hazards the incoming paramedics should be aware of. She said the male caller was very calm. “Most of the time when people call 911 they’re very panicked. My caller was extremely calm, he was very matter of fact, giving as many details as he could,” she said. All together, the call lasted about three minutes, she said. While she was on the phone JP Trottier/Submitted with the first caller, Dan Proulx Dan Proulx and Marie Larocque are communications officers who take 911 calls. They took the third call reporting work with paramedics who took two of the first three calls on Oct. 22, 2014, after a soldier the shooting, from a man in was fatally shot downtown. an office tower who was also could see.

“We stayed calm, professional and deal with the situation. It’s what we’re taught to do. We’re used to the high stress.” JP Trottier

“A shooting itself is not terribly shocking, unfortunately. But when they throw out the words ‘terrorist attack’ and the solider being shot at, it’s certainly shocking and it takes you a second to process it. Then we go right into what we know.” RECOGNITION

paramedics. They both were surprised to find out they were receiving the recognition. Neither Proulx, who has been with the paramedics for 26 years, or Larocque, who has been with them for 14 years, had ever received a similar honour. “I thought, I just did my job,” Larocque said. Proulx said he tries to treat every caller the same, because the emergency, big or small, is urgent for the person at the other end of the line. “These guys are the very calm voice at the end of the telephone,” Vincelette said. “They relay the information and get the paramedics where they need to be. There’s a lot of thinking and planning on their part.”He said the call dragged on for hours because there were significant unknowns until late in the afternoon; they were unsure if there were multiple shooters. “Even though they think they’re just doing their job, even though they are, they stayed cool and calm and got the job done,” Trottier said. “They downplay it a bit.”

“After I hung up that call ... I went to dispatch our rapid response units,” Proulx said. There was no stopping after the call, as the phone continued to ring: a combination of people panicked about the shooting, medical emergencies inside the secured downtown perimeter, and completely un-related medical emergencies. “I remember an hour later I got a call from someone who couldn’t leave the (downtown) building and was having a panic attack,” he said. Paramedics spokesperson JP Trotier said there is a lot of co-ordination that needs to go on when a large scale emergency happens. For emergencies like the Oct. 22 shooting, staff will manage it and help settle everything from the call centre. “There’s a lot of co-ordination that needs to happen between the outer perimeter and the inner perimeter,” said Trottier. “There were several medical calls

that needed to be done that had nothing to do with the lockdown, but because they were in the perimeter there is a lot of co-ordination that needed to happen, and Dan and Marie were a part of that.” It was a long day, as calls continued to come in with a variety of information, some accurate, some inaccurate. Calls came from the Rideau Centre and the Chateau Laurier, where additional shootings were rumoured to have taken place. “Our day continues, we still have more emergencies,” Proulx said. “We stayed calm, professional and deal with the situation. It’s what we’re taught to do. We’re used to the high stress.” “We had a lot of other emergencies happening, so as much as we might want to pick up that phone and call our loved ones, we have to remember that there are still other people that need help,” Larocque said. Both Proulx and Larocque said they were exhausted at the end of the day, and relieved the shooter had been apprehended and the city was

Ottawa drummers Judith Franson, left, and Michele Penney perform ‘The Longest Walk’ before the launch of a new national equity and inclusion guide at city hall on June 8.

National equity and inclusion guide launches emma.jackson@metroland.com

Canadian municipalities now have a handy guide to help them see their cities through the eyes of their most vulnerable citizens, thanks to the work of City for All Women Initiative and the city of Ottawa. The two groups launched Advancing Equity and Inclusion: A Guide for Municipalities at city hall on June 8 after nine months of consultations with several other cities and service groups across the country. The comprehensive guide offers best practices, tips and tools that city planners and policy makers can use to make their municipalities more inclusive of women, racialized populations, people with disabilities, low-income residents and new Canadians. The project pulled examples and best practices from Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Lethbridge, Alta., and Stratford, P.E.I., – all leaders on the inclusive cities front – to give other municipalities a starting point for change. “Talk is good, but how can we be actionable?” asked Roy Pogorzelski from the city of Lethbridge. “(The guide is) a concrete thing we can move forward with for our municipalities

and our decision makers.” Pogorzelski said before Lethbridge began taking equity and inclusion seriously, city departments didn’t communicate with each other to make sure those kinds of considerations were being taken into account. While community service departments may have been thinking about inclusion as a matter of course, the waste services department didn’t necessary consider equity as an immediate issue. The guide helps to change that and bring an equity lens to everything a municipality does – from increasing equity in its hiring and promoting practices to making sure urban developments, services and programs can be accessed equally by all. And it doesn’t have to be huge. Sometimes small changes can make a big difference. Ottawa’s application of CAWI’s equity and inclusion lens to its OC Transpo decisionmaking process was held up as a prime example of how small policy changes can help vulnerable residents. In 2011, when the city was “optimizing” bus routes across the city to save money, CAWI encouraged staff to apply their equity and inclusion lens to the issue -- and it became immedi-

ately clear the riders most affected would be people with disabilities, low incomes and other disadvantages. Transit staff decided then to apply the equity lens to all decisions going forward to avoid unintended consequences for the residents who rely on transit most. “When they’re doing any new policy, they say ‘what would that look like from a woman’s point of view, or from a new Canadian’s point of view,’” said Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. The guide was developed by CAWI’s Mai Ngo, building on the group’s previous work developing the equity and inclusion lens. The document was developed with input from Ottawa city staff and several councillors, including Wilkinson. She said the guide is important because it offers graband-go tools municipalities can adapt and put into action quickly to start working toward more inclusive cities. “Small incremental steps are really important,” Wilkinson said. “It does take effort and it does take time. This is a very important step forward but it’s certainly not the last.” Theguidecanbefoundonlineat equityandinclusion.ca.

The proposed Rowan’s Law is named for Rowan Stringer, who died in 2013 from a head injury sustained while playing rugby. The law would establish guidelines for concussion management for youth in-school and non-school sports.

Manotick News - Thursday, June 18, 2015

A coroner’s jury proposed dozens of recommendations at the end of a 12-day inquest into Rowan Stringer’s death. The 17-year-old John McCrae Secondary School rugby player died in 2013 after she hit her head during a rugby game. The 49 coroner’s jury recommendations were made on June 3 to provincial ministries, sports organizations and federal, provincial and territorial ministers, as well as school boards and institutions that train teachers and physicians. The recommendations aim to prevent concussion-related deaths in young athletes following Stringer’s death. She died due to second impact syndrome several days after receiving her third concussion in a week. The jury’s top proposal called for the Ontario government to adopt Rowan’s Law, an act governing all youth sport which would establish a set of guidelines for concussion management modelled after the Swiss international concussion consensus guidelines. Other suggestions focused on adequately training teachers, parents, coaches, physicians and athletes in concussion recognition and treatment both within schools and outside of them. Although some recom-

mendations were aimed at restructuring rugby seasons and ensuring safe turf conditions for players, many focused on awareness and training. Recommendations to the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport include: • The ministry should require parents and athletes to participate in pre-season concussion awareness and management training prior to the start of any higher risk sports activity. • The ministry should provide information and resources to support parent, coach, player, referee and trainer concussion education. • The ministry should develop a pre- and post-game framework for identifying players’ injuries and concerns. Recommendations for provincial education ministries, school boards and institutions include: • Ontario school boards should consider adopting longer rugby seasons over the full school year in order to allow more time for players to develop skills, thus extending time between practices and games. • The Ministry of Education should work with school boards and education associations to develop formal methods for tracking student concussion injuries, in order to ensure those injuries are properly monitored and treated. • Ontario school boards should include a mandatory concussion training in Grade 9 health and physical education

curriculum. • Ontario school boards should ensure that all first aid kids contain concussion recognition tools and include concussion management training in existing new teacher induction programs. • Teachers and physicians should receive adequate training in concussion and sports injury management from the educational institutions that train them. A recommendation to the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, provincial medical associations and boards of education urged those institutions to ensure that no fee be charged for doctors’ notes assessing whether students with suspected concussions are ready to return to school and sports. Finally, the coroner’s jury called on federal, provincial and territorial ministers responsible for sport to become leaders in promoting concussion recognition and management education among players, parents and officials. The recommendation emphasized the need to provide concussion training in nonschool sports. The recommendations came after the jury heard from witnesses including friends, coaches and family who discussed the circumstances surrounding Stringer’s death. Concussion experts and medical professionals also testified throughout the inquest, which began on May 19 and ended on June 3.


CHEO Telethon sets new record with $7.94M in donations

Erin McCracken

Heroes everywhere have stepped up and made magic happen. Thunderous cheers erupted at the EY Centre on Sunday, June 7, at 7 p.m. when it was revealed that the 32nd-annual CHEO Telethon generated a record-breaking $7.94 million in donations, up from $7.1 million in 2014. “This is the single most important weekend of the year for CHEO in terms of the funding needed for research, for equipment and special programs,” Alex Munter, CHEO’s president and chief ex-

finding a non-toxic cure for cancer … and everything in between,” Belsito said. Telethon dollars have also helped the hospital fund specialized programs, such as its new concussion clinic, as well as extending playroom hours and ensuring CHEO clown Molly Penny can continue bringing smiles to young patients. Last year’s telethon funds went, in part, to improving access to respirology, mental-health services and adolescent medicine. “There is no exaggeration at all to say without the support of the community, without the CHEO telethon, we would not have as much research, as high-quality medical equipment nor so many of the special programs that kids and families rely on,” Munter said. The hospital is experiencing a rise in demand

for services, with more on the way, part of the reason why the hospital relies so heavily on community support. “There will be 70,000 more kids in our region in 20 years than there are today,” Munter said, adding the hospital is working on its goal this year to eliminate 50,000 days of waiting for services and care. The telethon, which was first held in 1984, raising $600,000, has since become the hospital’s single largest fundraiser. It is also “a real shot in the arm” for everyone at CHEO, Munter said. “When CHEO staff, physicians and volunteers see this outpouring of community support, it really encourages them,” the hospital president said. “It’s really affirming Erin McCracken/Metroland of the work they do every Volunteers man the phone lines at the EY Centre during the CHEO single day for children Telethon, broadcast on CTV Ottawa June 6 and 7. The fundraiser and families.” generated a record-breaking $7.94 million in donations.

Last December, a Good Samaritan found a dog wandering the streets alone and brought him to the Ottawa Humane Society for help. It was a cold, blustery winter afternoon and the dog, now named Joey, was shivering and very hungry. Despite this, his sweet doggy nature shone through — Joey enthusiastically gave everyone he met a big, sloppy kiss! When an owner did not come forward for Joey, the OHS made

sure he received all the care he needed, including sterilization, vaccinations, six weeks of pet insurance, a health guarantee, and a microchip to ensure that if he ever became lost again, he’d be returned to his future forever family. Just like Joey, every dog and cat adopted from the OHS gets this amount of care before curling up on your windowsill or playing fetch in your backyard — an

astonishing value packed into one adoption fee. This month, in an effort to raise awareness about the amazing deal in adopting from the OHS, everyone who finds their new best cat or dog friend at the OHS will be entered to win a grand prize of two tickets to the Summer Harvest Garden Party! Adopters will get a chance to spin the big wheel in the lobby for even more prizes for their pets!

Joey

Hi I am Joey, the 10 year old pup who is loved very much by my Mom, Dad and 2 sisters. I am a Lhasa Apso and Pekingese mix which makes me quite lively and full of character. Friends and family like to call me “JoJo” and I am very loyal to themespecially my Mom. I can’t even handle 1 minute that she is away from home and always wait for her at the door, often wimpering, until she returns. My favourite treats include leftover steak and hamburgers (when Mom permits), Texas Toothpicks and the festive Turducken dinner that I get at Christmas! I am really playful and like when I get to go to the park, run around and see other dogs. My best friends are both maltipoos named Buddy and Mickey. Most of all, my favourite thing to do is sit with my family and get cuddles!

Community support for CHEO is strong

ecutive officer told Metroland Media. “(The telethon is) two days that lasts for another 363 in terms of its impact.” This year, the donations will help the hospital purchase a second, more high-tech portable X-ray machine. “It can go to patients who are too sick to come down to X-ray,” said Jacqueline Belsito, CHEO Foundation vice-president of philanthropy and community engagement. “So it’s a pretty unique piece of machinery.” The money generated before and during the telethon also helps the CHEO Foundation and the CHEO Research Institute attract other financial supports, such as funding from outside research bodies. “At one end of the scale we’re doing research on concussions and on the other end of the scale we’re doing research on

THE RIGHT CARE, RIGHT HERE NEW BEDSIDE TECHNOLOGY

GUIDING YOUR JOURNEY PATIENTS IMPROVING PATIENT CARE

Gene Szabo says that Queensway Carleton Hospital has been his family’s hospital since it opened. He has been a patient, and like many others, he says it can sometimes be scary and confusing. Now he’s helping to change that. Gene is co-chair of QCH’s new Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC). This committed

team of past patients and care partners provides advice and feedback on many aspects of care at QCH. Their input is sought on everything from new programs to patient brochures. The PFAC recently took on one of the biggest challenges for people coming to the hospital – finding your way around. They supported some

great ideas such as new directional signs that project on the floor at key hallway intersections. They helped validate the new touch screen kiosks developed by loss prevention officer Patrick Millward and his team at Interactive Studio. These kiosks help visitors find their way, simplifying confusing medical terminology. For

example, if you type ‘X-ray’, you will be directed to Radiology. And a new mobile app, developed by Patrick and his team, is coming this fall - so visitors can use their smartphones to guide them. Who better to ask than those who experience care at QCH first-hand? Our PFAC is helping to shape how care is delivered.

QCH’s e-documentation project is taking us one step closer to a complete electronic patient record. New technology at the bedside allows clinical staff to document care electronically - right beside each patient. Other care providers can then access the information, anywhere and in real time. QCH is also playing a leading role with CHAMP, the Champlain Association of Meditech Partners. Together with five regional hospitals, we are developing a shared electronic patient record to support better, safer care. It’s about being accountable with our partners as we develop standardized best practices. Plans are now in the works for the Emergency Department Tracker to help triage patients and track their progress through initial assessment, testing, treatment and potential admission to the hospital. We want to ensure patients are receiving the right care, at the right time, in the right place. QCH is also focused on the most vulnerable patients in our community. We are involved in two local Health Links. A new provincial initiative, Health Links aim to connect family doctors, specialists, hospitals, home care, long-term care, and community support agencies. We coordinate efforts around a single goal – better care for select patients with complex needs. We want to wrap the care team around these patients to ensure they are receiving the care and support they need.

What do you do with a deep fryer you no longer need? Turn it into an herb garden of course! QCH is proud to be one of the first hospitals in the region to reach a major milestone in the Healthy Foods initiative. The program is about making the healthy choice the easy choice for everyone at QCH. Over the past year, we’ve reduced the unhealthy food and beverage choices – and increased the healthy ones – in the cafeteria, vending machines and gift shop. For example, deep fried foods are being replaced with more salads, baked and grilled food options and sodium-reduced soups. Partnerships with local vendors such as Foster Family Farm also help to reinforce positive food choices. Promoting healthy eating in the workplace supports employee health, and ultimately our ability to deliver the best patient care. It’s the right thing to do.

MYERS AUTOMOTIVE GROUP TAKES THE WHEEL

WE’RE BLUSHING MULTIPLE HONOURS FOR QCH

Recognizing and supporting one another is important at QCH. This past year, QCH has been honoured with several awards and we’re proud to share the good news and applaud our teams. Let’s start with our staff. QCH received the Quality Healthcare Workplace Award from the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) and the Ministry of Health. This silver award recognizes QCH’s efforts to improve the quality of work life for staff - and in turn, the quality of care and services delivered to our patients. Supporting the next generation of caregivers is also a priority at QCH. CEO Tom Schonberg was honoured with a national Mentorship Award by the Canadian College of Health Leaders. The award credits Tom’s focus on supporting individuals and teams. He also received the Order of Ottawa for his role in QCH’s growth as a leading regional healthcare resource. Speaking of teams, the QCH Foundation was presented with the Not-for-Profit of the Year Award by the Greater Nepean Chamber of Commerce. And QCH takes care of more than our patients – we take care of the environment too. This past year, QCH was recognized with two awards for energy excellence from the OHA and the Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care. The awards look at everything from energy use to water conservation to waste management. These honours recognize our commitment to sustainability and continued efficiencies.

The Mews Family believes in supporting their community. In fact, they have been generous supporters of Queensway Carleton Hospital for more than three decades. That generosity hit a new level with a recent $1 million donation from the Myers Automotive Group for the new ACE (Acute Care of the Elderly) Unit. The ACE Unit provides a new way of caring – the first of its kind in eastern Ontario. It offers a collaborative, senior friendly care model where partnerships play a big part in the recovery process. The goal is help the frail elderly who require acute care admission. We want them to remain as independent as possible, to reduce their hospital stay and to ensure a smooth transition home with the right supports in place. Harry Mews notes that his father Hank has served on the hospital and foundation boards, helping to shape the hospital we know today. He says his family is proud to be part of such an important project that will benefit so many people.

Chickens were only ones to enjoy weekend trip to cottage

G

oing any further than into Renfrew with the old Model T meant an overnight stay. So it was, on a warm Saturday morning, we set out for Aunt Edith’s in Gananoque, with a change of clothes for each of us in a cardboard box Mother brought home from Briscoe’s General Store. Father, and my brother Everett, would not be going. Someone had to milk the cows, and tend the livestock, so with Mother behind the wheel, and we four children piled into the car, we headed out for a trip that would take most of the day. Emerson would have liked to stay home, but Mother knew that could mean trouble. “Nothing to do but watch her darn cat, and those red hens Aunty keeps in the little back yard,” he lamented. Aunt Edith and Uncle George Cosh, I thought, must be very rich indeed.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Didn’t they own one of the Thousand Islands? And didn’t Aunt Edith have her very own beauty parlour with the lovely name Primrose Beauty Shoppe on a painted sign over the door? Uncle George, I was sure, was just as important as the mayor. He had his very own office in the Town Hall, and Mother said he knew where every manhole and light switch was in the entire town of Gananoque. Yes, very important indeed were my Aunt Edith and Uncle George. I knew we wouldn’t be spending a lot of time in the little apartment they lived in over the beauty parlour -

- we would be heading out in Uncle George’s launch before we had time to catch our breath, going over to their very own island. We had to carry everything down to the harbour, where this enormous boat, which I was sure could hold half of Renfrew County, was tied up. It had to be big, because Aunt Edith would never leave her cat, or her chickens alone in town if she was staying somewhere over night. And we would be bedded down in the Cosh cottage, which gave me a gnawing pain in the pit of my stomach. Some of it was excitement, but most of it was

plain fear. The boat ride alone was reason enough to cause me to panic. By the time we loaded the six chickens, unrestrained, Sandy the cat, and all the food and our box of clothes into the boat, it sunk into the St. Lawrence with not more than four inches of boat left out of the water. I was sure we wouldn’t be six feet out from shore, before we all went down to the bottom of the river, with our bodies washing up at some faraway place miles from Gananoque. Mother and Aunt Edith, the chickens and the cat, climbed into Uncle George’s late model car, and the rest of us had to walk, carrying what was left over to take to the island. Even though the boat was big, it groaned and tilted from side to side, as Uncle George stowed as much as he could under the very front of the boat, the cat was

draped around Aunt Edith’s neck like a fur collar, and the chickens happily clucked away, picking away at ants, dead flies and a few insects in the bottom of the boat. My sister Audrey, who never liked to look different, hissed she was glad we didn’t know anyone in Gananoque. “We look like a pack of Gypsies.” Uncle George sat in an ordinary kitchen chair at the front, turned a key, blue smoke poured out of the tail end of the boat, and we tore out of the dock like a bullet out of rifle. I sat close to Mother with my hand gripping the few inches of the boat that were left above water, and was grateful that at least it was a short trip across to the island that I was positive belonged to my rich aunt and uncle. Emerson and Earl were scrunched down in the belly of the boat at the very centre, and a few leather cushions

were stacked beside them, which were supposed to save us on our way down to the bottom of the St. Lawrence. “How much do you want to bet the chickens get first dibs on the cushions if we have to bail out?” Emerson hissed. Finally, we pulled into what passed for a dock. “Don’t step on the boards at the end,” Uncle George said. We soon found out why. Audrey who didn’t know any better, hoisted our cardboard box of clothes onto the boards, and they heaved up at the other end, and if she hadn’t been so quick, our change of clothes would have gone down to the bottom of the river. The chickens seemed to know what was expected of them, and they headed for a little wire closed-in plot with Aunt Edith cooing to them as if they knew exactly what she was saying. See Mary page 42

June 20

For years, there was no need for a stop in Prescott, but the Team Ontario bus was thankful to round up the eight Ottawa South United Force players en route to Montreal’s south shore for this season’s provincial teams competition against Quebec. A number of local players selected for the Quebec vs Ontario matches made a big impact as Ontario swept the three-game series at each level from U14 through U16 in boys’ and girls’ action on the April 24-26 and May 1-3 weekends. “Everyone did really well,” highlights U14 boys’ striker Danny Assaf, who profited from the chemistry he owns with OSU midfielder Antonio Carlini to feed him passes. “It’s an advantage. I play with him and we know how we like to play.” After a tie in their first game, Assaf launched Ontario to a 3-2 win with a pair of goals in their second match and cruised to a 4-1 victory in the third encounter. In the girls’ U14 competition, OSU’s Ariel Young and Olivia Cooke also found their way onto the scoresheet. “It was really awesome,” recounts Young, who moved up from her fullback position to score her goal. “Two of us from Ottawa both scored, so that was really good representation.” Mollie Eriksson enjoyed having a number of OSU teammates at her side for the event. The 2000-born goalkeeper had previously been part of regional, provincial and national programs, but she was the only Ottawa participant on most occasions. “It was just me and my dad for a lot of it,” notes Eriksson. “It was really good to travel together and it was just more fun because we could room with them and not feel so lonely.” U16 girls’ striker Clarissa Larissey, last year’s OYSL scoring champion, savoured the intensity of the matches between the provincial rivals. “At the top, the game just gets faster and faster,” indicates the Grade 10 Sacred Heart High School student who’s already thinking about going to university thanks to her soccer exploits. “Working to get an education and then going to Team Canada, that’s pretty much the goal.” Getting the best chance to strive for bigger objectives was a main attraction for Youma Konate to join OSU two years ago, even if it can take the Grade 9 Colonel By Secondary School student 45 minutes to get to the field sometimes. “Here at OSU, they teach you everything so you can succeed at a higher level,” explains the U15 girls’ centre-back. “The coaching is amazing and all the players are really skilled. It’s really fun and it’s a good environment to play in.” The prospect of playing for Team Ontario acted as a strong motivator, says Emily Amano. “It always kept you going,” recalls the U15 girls’ attacking midfielder. “In training, you wanted to push that much farther so you could get that spot.” The pre-season experience with Team Ontario has translated into a quick start for OSU’s nine teams in provincial league play, having recorded just one single loss across all age groups through three weekends of play. “During our games, you can definitely see (the impact),” signals U14 girls’ forward Olivia Cooke, the owner of a five goal-game in one of her OPDL team’s two wins and tie. “It was incredible training, and I think that really helped us get a glimpse of that perspective of a professional environment with the best in Ontario.” With OSU players having earned an equal number of provincial team positions last season, Club Head Coach Paul Harris says that the repeat representation provides a big reason for the club to celebrate. “The fact that it’s consistent and becoming habitual, I think Ottawa has been put on the map,” Harris underlines. “It’s a great progression. It’s a testament to the club and all the coaches for all the hard work that’s put in behind the scenes. Now we’re not just getting one or two into the Ontario team, we’re getting seven or eight every year. “We want to keep increasing our numbers every year and show the powerhouse that OSU is in Ontario.”

She put river water in a bowl, grain in two pie plates, and a couple of apple cores she had in a brown paper bag, said a few kind words, unwrapped Sandy from around her neck, and announced we would be eating as soon as she could find the box that had all the food in it. It didn’t take all day to discover the box of food was somewhere on the dock in Gananoque, and we would be eating whatever we could find in the cottage. Emerson suggested we could perhaps do in a couple of the chickens. I was grateful he said it in a whisper, because I knew Aunt Edith would rather do away with one of us kids than one of her chickens. Even though it was a blistering hot day, and everyone else got into their bath-

ing suits, I had no intention of going anywhere near the St. Lawrence. Because, as always, you could see the heads of a couple black water snakes just waiting for anyone crazy enough to go in for a dip. I would spend the entire weekend as far away from the water’s edge as I could get. At least the chickens seem to have enjoyed themselves, and if chickens could feel gratitude, these seemed to have shown it in proper fashion. There on the grass, just inside the little enclosure, were two freshly laid eggs. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?
