News - Councillors once again said they were holding their noses as they voted on July 9 to make the Rideau-Carleton Raceway the city’s only option for a new casino site. But the final vote at city council on July 17 might see a different result, depending on additional legal information the city solicitor will bring to the meeting after representatives from the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre blasted the city for what they say is a faulty and possibly illegal process of choosing where to put a new gambling facility. While council voted in principle last fall to support a new casino, Watson said changes in leadership at Queen’s Park and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation opened an opportunity for the city to specify where it wants a casino, and he now thinks the facility should be at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway. Without it, the raceway and the approximately 1,000 jobs provided by the south Ottawa business would be no more, Watson said. “This is the only way to protect slots at the raceway,” he said. But critics of the move blasted the city for going down a road of sole-sourcing the bid for a new casino. While Watson contends that any hopeful casino operator could submit a bid and then operate a casino at the raceway,

critics said in a practical sense, the location and business operations must be linked. Senators owner Eugene Melnyk spoke to the committee at length, pleading for an equal chance to submit his bid for a casino at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. “I’m not asking for a handout. I’m asking for a shot – a shot to make money so I can do this,” he said, referring to running his hockey team despite financial losses. The Senators operate at a great financial loss and a casino could help prop up the business, Melnyk said. But he brushed off the suggestion that he was threatening to take the team elsewhere if he didn’t get the chance to bid to build a casino. “I’ve been doing this for 10 years. Why stop now?” Melnyk said. “I still love this city.” City solicitor Rick O’Connor agreed to get additional legal advice from third-party lawyers after the mayor and council received a tongue lashing from Capital Sports and Entertainment lawyer Paul Webber. He called Watson’s motion “unlawful” and “morally and ethically” unsound. “You are bonusing a business. I don’t know how I can be more clear than that,” Webber said. “Not only does it not pass the smell test, it’s not legal.” O’Connor said that’s not true – legal advice from an arms-length firm that defended the Lansdowne redevelopment contract indicated the city is allowed to specify a location. But O’Connor said he would like to look at the matter in more depth, given the “aggressive” nature of comments from delegates like Webber. See CASINO page 3

Snowmobilers seek exciting new logo Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - Artists can start thinking about snow a little earlier this summer as the Osgoode Carleton Snowmobile Trail Club launches a logo contest for next year’s provincial convention. The club has been chosen to host the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs annual general meeting in September 2014. Hundreds of delegates from across the province will attend the convention in Ottawa, and the Osgoode club is already

planning more than a year in advance. As part of its hosting duties the club needs a logo to represent their theme, “Suit Up and Sled,” to be used on mail-outs, registration websites and delegate packages. “We have our own club logo, but we wanted to come up with something unique for the convention,” said club president Leigh Stacey. “We have lots of talented people around so we thought we’d try and generate some publicity about the club in a positive way.” All residents, even those

who don’t snowmobile, are welcome to submit a logo by Aug. 15. A winner will be chosen by the end of the summer, taking home a prize and the chance to have their artwork spread across the province. The content is up to the artist’s interpretation, as long as it captures the spirit of winter and snowmobiling, Stacey said. The logo also needs to be scalable to any size without losing quality, because it will be used on a variety of resources. Entries can be forwarded to vice president Christine Smart at cksmart@live.com.

Metcalfe man chases history to high Arctic Researcher tracing Canadian Arctic Expedition 100 years later Dr. David Gray left on July 17 for Canada’s high Arctic, where he will retrace the steps of Emma Jackson/Metroland

the notorious Canadian Arctic Expedition that launched from Victoria 100 years ago.

Emma Jackson

R0012204644-0711

News – One hundred years ago, a large team of scientists and adventurers were preparing for a journey of a lifetime to Canada’s high Arctic to document the landscape, wildlife and culture of the Far North. The Canadian Arctic Expedition, launched in 1913, would come to span five long years of setbacks, human loss and scientific breakthrough and become one of the greatest, largely untold adventures in Canadian history. It’s also a history Metcalfe resident David Gray hopes to bring back to life. The independent researcher, writer and filmmaker has spent much of his professional life documenting Canada’s northern regions. Despite his home base in rural Ottawa, hardly a year has gone by without a trip to the Arctic since he first spent 11 months on Bathurst Island in 1968. On July 17, Gray once again took to the north in an attempt to finally locate, survey and document the camps and locations of the original expedition a century ago. “It’s an exciting opportunity to bring this site back to life, in a way,” Gray said, referring to the main site near Sachs Harbour, N.W.T., 500 kilometres northeast of Inuvik. “Even for the local people, they know it’s historic, they know it’s significant, but they can’t go back and say ‘This is where my grandfa-

ther put his tent’ because no one has mapped it out.” The six-person team will fly into Sachs Harbour on the southwest shore of Banks Island on July 17. From there they can easily access the expedition’s main headquarters west of the town, where they will spend a week documenting the site’s hut foundations and remnants of the schooner Mary Sachs. From there the team will board a motorized sailboat Bernard Explorer captained by Bob Bernard, great-greatnephew of expedition member Peter Bernard. They will head due north to explore the western shore of Banks Island looking for any sign of Bernard, who was lost in the winter of 1916. The last sign of his trail was found at the northwest tip of the island and Gray said it’s unlikely he ever turned south toward the safety of fellow expedition member Natkusiak’s camp in the nearby Gore Islands. At the time, Bernard was carrying several large expedition mail bags. Finding those bags – and anything still intact inside them - would be a major windfall. “The most likely scenario is he went through the ice and there won’t be anything to find,” Gray said. “But given the ocean currents ... stuff could be washed up on the shores at any time. It’s a shot in the dark. It’s a needle in a haystack, but if you don’t look you don’t find.” From there the ship will make its way south along the shoreline to document another 10 sites, including Natkusiak’s camp. The crew should return home by the end of August. The expedition will produce two documentary films, a historical record of Sachs Harbour to be used as a tourism guide, and could someday lead to a

book. Of course like many scientific endeavours, Gray said funding continues to be a barrier. Despite some indication that federal money would be set aside to commemorate the expedition’s 100th anniversary, Gray gave up trying to squeeze blood from a stone several months ago and turned instead to a crowdfunding campaign. The team needs about $20,000 to cover the trip’s bare bone expenses, which don’t include individual travel costs incurred by the team members as well as their free labour. “It’s a people expedition,” Gray said. He said many people connected to the expedition, the team members or who have an interest in the north have already come forward with generous donations. Corporate sponsorships and donations from people not otherwise connected to the project are also starting to come forward. “Everybody’s pulling together,” he said. And putting off the expedition until more funds can be raised is hardly an option. As global warming takes its toll on the region, time is of the essence. “Now that there isn’t ice protection in the summer months, the erosion rate is increasing dramatically,” Gray said, noting that as much as one metre of shoreline is eaten away every two years. That erosion is taking history with it. “Every storm, every high tide, artifacts are lost.” Donors can still support the expedition with cheques to the Canadian Museum of Nature, or through the expedition’s website www.canadianarcticexpedition.com. The crew will also maintain a blog and live map on their website throughout their journey, for Canadians who want to follow along at home.

Casino vote contentious effectively, the raceway facility itself – would shut down. The news even came as a surprise to the representatives of the raceway. “That’s a new but a positive wrinkle,” Lawryk said. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick said that could end up being the result if the OLG chose not to renew its slots contract with the raceway. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt, who opposes a casino, said it’s impossible to say whether the original vote last November would have had a different result if councillors knew the OLG would be open to continuing to operate the slots. “It appears the direction of the OLG has changed since Wynne came in,” Moffat said. But that option didn’t exist at the time, he added. The previous OLG power brokers were adamant that gambling would be in the urban area, or Ottawa wouldn’t get a gambling facility at all, Moffatt said. The OLG might continue operating slots at the raceway if city council turned down a new casino, he said. “The problem is, for how long? We don’t know that,” Moffatt said.

Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans said the goal of saving the raceway and the jobs it provides is laudable, but the city should have more information before it makes moves to save one business at the expense of another, such as a hockey team like the Senators. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri, whose ward contains the Canadian Tire Centre, took a similar stance. He has supported the possibility of a new casino at the arena all along, he said, but he would like to see it win in an open and competitive bidding process. Alex Lawryk, spokesman for Rideau Carleton Entertainment, said the finance and economic development committee made the right decision on solid legal footing, but he supported councillors wanting to get more legal information at the city council meeting on July 17. “They also said last November when they voted to move forward with the OLG program that they were going to hold their noses and vote then. “So they’re still holding their noses and voting.” While the raceway would like its own casino bid to win, Lawryk said the group would still be satisfied if it became the landlord to another casino operator, since that would still support the raceway’s operations and allow it to continue.

At least one councillor was surprised to hear the city manager say that the Rideau Carleton Raceway would remain open and operated by the OLG or a subcontractor if the city rejected OLG’s chosen option for a casino operator and location.

News - When Janice VandenTillaart found out she was cancer-free, there was only one thing she wanted to do: ride a 100-kilometre race to help raise awareness and money for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. VandenTillaart got the news she was cancer-free in December 2012 and since that day she has been training for Ride the Rideau on Sept. 7. Setting up a team with family members and

friends called Tour de Cure, the group needs to raise $7,000 to compete. So far they have raised $6,418 for the cause and on July 7 VandenTillaart’s local spa, The Pedicure Shop in Manotick Station, decided to offer a helping hand by offering pedicures, manicures and other services with the cost donated to VandenTillaart’s team. “She is a great client and when she said she was going to participate in the ride, I wanted to help,” said José-Lucie Bastien, owner of The Pedicure Shop. Bastien said a close family member suffered from cancer and she always wanted to give back to cancer research. “I have donated throughout the years, but never had a chance to do something like this,” Bastien said. She added that in her business she has encounters many clients who suffer from different sicknesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. “In the few short years I have come to know Janice she has bravely fought this disease and continues to be strong in her outlook on life,” Bastien said. Diagnosed with endometrial cancer in January 2012, VandenTillaart said since she began chemo therapy she started to loose the feeling in her hands and toes. So she became a regular customer at the Pedicure Shop for massages and pedicures to help keep feeling in her toes. “José has been so helpful,” VandenTillaart said. “It’s been her positive attitude, I found it’s been really good for me. And she is so good with the therapy for me. She really knows her stuff.” To help with her circulation, she began knitting scarves, chemo hats and yoga mats, giving them away to others she met in

The scarves have been one of the biggest means for VandenTillaart’s fundraising. The pedicure shop owner is the only local shop that VandenTillaart’s scarves are for sale. The fundraiser got off to a wet start, but that didn’t stop people from coming out and getting their toes and nails prettied up for the cause. The day also included a barbecue, pedicures, manicures, items for sale all to help raise funds to help support the team’s bike race. Food was donated by MacKinnon’s Foodland. THE RIDE

The Ottawa-to-Merrickville bike tour offers two ride options this year, a 100-km route which VandenTillaart is doing, and a new 50-km route. “This year, we expanded our ride to include a 50-km option in addition to our traditional 100km route,” said Michelle van Vliet, communications director at the foundation. “We did this to allow more people to participate and make an impact on the fight against cancer. While it is true you never forget how

to ride a bike, many people we spoke to about getting involved were just too intimidated about training for a 100-km ride.” Van Vliet said currently there are 50 people registered in the 50-km option and 593 people registered in the 100-km route. “The new distance has allowed teams to expand and involve more staff, friends and family – along with the option of volunteering as well,” van Vliet said. Both distances require the same fundraising commitment of $1,500. “We chose not to alter this amount for the shorter ride because Ride the Rideau is first and foremost a fundraiser for cancer research,” she said. In the four years the fundraiser has been in operation, it has raised $4.4 million for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. The ride begins at the Ernst and Young Centre and runs along the Rideau River to downtown Merrickville-Wolford. Those who participate in the 50-km will be driven the other 50 to meet up with the other participants. Once in Merrickville, there will be a barbecue, entertainment, souvenir photos for teams and a complimentary motor coach back to Ottawa.

Rideau River park celebrates 50 years with community day Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - Any 50th anniversary is reason to celebrate, and staff at Rideau River Provincial Park are jumping on the opportunity. On Saturday, July 20, members of the public are invited to wish the park a happy anniversary with a fun-filled day of fishing, canoeing and exploring. At various times between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., families can meet Smokey the Bear, visit with conservation officers and learn about the park’s rich habitats and wildlife with natural heritage education staff from sister park Murphy’s Point. The Friends of Murphy’s Point will host a barbecue and cake-cutting event for a nominal fee, and in the afternoon families can jump in an 18-person voyageur canoe for an hour-long free tour on the Rideau. Families should register in advance for a voyageur canoe tour. Family fishing on the public docks will also be available, but park supplies are limited so families should bring their own tackle if they can. Family activities wrap up around 5 p.m., but everyone can return at 8 p.m. to see the Celtic Rathskallions perform in the park until 9:30 p.m. with Celtic-rooted music, dance, drama and stories. While individual activities

are free all day, a day pass entrance to the park is $14 per car. Assistant park superintendent Harvey Cornell said the celebration is open to everyone. “Just like anything, we want to celebrate the anniversary, because it’s quite a big milestone,� he said. “We want to talk about the park.� The 98-hectare green space is located off Donnelly Drive near Beckett’s Landing, along the “long reach� of the Rideau Canal – the longest stretch between any two lockstations. The park was part of the province’s explosion in park development in the 1950s and 1960s, when Ontario’s parks jumped in number from only eight in 1954 to a whopping 77 in 1961. In 1957, Ontario’s minister of lands and forests, J.W. Spooner, announced plans for a swimming beach and campground on forest station land along the Rideau. Camping started in 1959, and in 1963 Rideau River was officially designated a provincial park. In those days, a day pass cost only 50 cents, and a

camping permit was $1. For $3, you could use the park all season. Today the park is a popular site for day use as well as car and RV camping. Along with 184 regular camp sites, it offers six group sites which are well-used by local scouting and community groups. The park boasts sandy beaches, a fitness trail and fishing opportunities. Senior park clerk Laurie Dulmage has worked at the park for 13 years and said it’s unique because of its accessibility. “We’re on the Rideau Canal, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and we’re close to Ottawa and close to Merrickville,� she said. Down the road, visitors can find hiking trails and a golf course. In the past decade the park has upgraded its washrooms and sewage systems, and has seen much of its park infrastructure updated as well. Last year 39,000 visitors used the park. The park is located at 2680 Donnelly Dr. For more information call 613-258-2740.

Rideau River Provincial Park will mark 50 years on July 20. Assistant park superintendent Harvey Cornell and senior park clerk Laurie Dulmage hope the community will help them celebrate the anniversary. SU

“Most of our business community is older, so we don’t hear the feedback from youth,” Kwong said, adding that focus needs to broaden from summer jobs for students returning to post-secondary education and into more flexible opportunities, such as in the trades. “It leaves out a huge group of youth who need something year round,” she said. “Especially for marginalized youth; they might not be able to afford post-secondary education, but staying home and taking courses in trades wouldn’t qualify them for (grant-assisted summer jobs).” Speakers from various organizations and groups, such as the YMCA, said that a more holistic approach is needed with marginalized youth, with factors like providing appropriate clothing and Internet access. When running events for students, common mistakes can include putting youth in environments where they are uncomfortable, like a formal wine and cheese, and holding an event at a location not easily accessible by public transportation, roundtable speakers said.

Opinion - An article published in the Manotick News about the upcoming by-elections spoke about the small turnout of voters at by-elections compared to the last general provincial election, where less than half of the eligible voters took part in the election. And those were just those of us who can vote. In the article, it said, “In a perfect world every Ontarian would take it as their duty to vote.” It might be my duty to vote, but it isn’t my right. I was born in Canada, and I have Canadian citizenship. By all logic, I should be able to vote. So why can’t I? I’m not eighteen yet. I don’t have any more say in politics than the opinions I voice at the dinner table. Having a missing demographic from the voting system creates a disturbing bias. For example, if teenagers could vote, the majority would probably vote for someone who could lower admissions to universities or offer financial support for young adults applying for post-secondary educations. Elections are held every four years so, as it is, someone might not even be able to vote at all until they are twenty-two years old. By that time, they might be halfway through university already. Furthermore, this previous school year was a struggle due to the “putting students first” act, an act that set off a chain reaction that ultimately resulted in the termination of most extra-curricular activities throughout public schools for the year. A major player in this act was Dalton McGuinty. Did he ask students what they wanted? No, he didn’t. Consequently, it is partially because of McGuinty’s resignation that we are having these by-elections at all. I can’t vote at this election, but a lot of people can. If you do have the ability to vote, I encourage you to, not just in this election, but in all future elections. It is your right, your duty, and your responsibility. It is your country, after all. Besides, if you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to complain about so-and-so wasting your well-earned tax money.

Carkinator scores $47,000 for WDMH Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - The Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation’s third annual Carkinator Car & Moto Rally was a huge success on July 6, beating its fundraising goal and attracting more teams than ever before. A total of 29 teams followed the hockey-themed rally route throughout the Winchester and Metcalfe area, including seven sponsor cars. The two-hour route featured three hockey-themed pit stops with challenges like dressing in hockey gear or answering hockey trivia questions. Given that last year’s route was about five hours long – and some people got lost – participants loved the change, said event organizer Christina Enright. The 110 participants broke the event’s team fundraising record, with an average of $1,140 raised per team. In total the event raised $47,289 for the hospital’s undesignated fund, $7,000 more than the goal. “We want to thank everyone who was involved in this special day,” said foundation executive director Troy Cross during the event. “We are so grateful to our local communities for their incredible and continued support of the WDMH Foundation.” The annual event is headlined by Winchester-born NHL defenceman Matt Carkner, who used to play with the Ottawa Senators and now plays for the New York Islanders. Other local NHL stars at the event included Ottawa Senator Chris Neil, retired Philadelphia Flyer Terry Carkner, former Washington Capitals defenceman Bryan Helmer and former Senators forward Shean Donovan. Together they were the stars of a Hockey Hot Stove hosted by Liam MacGuire at the after-rally party. Participants were able to ask questions of their favourite hometown heroes. Tom Clapp asked whether the players had any special memories from playing in the Winchester are-

na. Matt Carkner answered, “It was one of my first tournaments, we were down three goals and in the third period, I scored my first hat trick, and I fell in love with hockey after that.” Donovan, a native of Carleton Place, joked that he loved the Winchester arena because he never lost a game there. “The fact that all of them had a hometown tie really made it special for participants to hear their perspective,” Enright said. Thousands of dollars of prizes were given away, thanks to a number of local sponsors. Highest fundraising team Driving

Miss Daisies won a 400-level box at an Ottawa Senators pre-season game, which includes limo service and a catered dinner. The prize had an approximate value of $2,500. Diane Crummy of the same team also won the highest individual fund-

raising prize: a trip for two to Long Island to see the New York Islanders, including airfare, accommodations, meals, a post-game tour of the locker room and $500 spending money. Carkner thanked everyone for all of their hard work.

“I’m honoured to lead this fundraising event for the WDMH Foundation. ... I’m also touched that even though I don’t play for the home team anymore, you have all come out to cheer me on at this event through your participation.”

Let’s avoid city planning extremes

T

here is little room for black and white when it comes to planning Ottawa’s future. A good case-in-point is the debate that surrounded the decision to turn Main Street, running through Old Ottawa East, into what is described as a “complete street.” This term describes a streetscape that makes room for all modes of transportation, from walking to cycling to cars to buses or other modes of mass transit. It means wide sidewalks, designated cycling and transit lanes and typically fewer lanes for automobile traffic. It is the type of street that is meant to promote and support sustainable growth of cities, making the streetscape a friendlier place for those living and working in the area. It is also something that can prove divisive, a situation that played out at a recent transportation committee meeting. Two councillors serving on the committee, both representing suburban wards, expressed concern with the effect such a street would have, not on those living in the area, but those passing through or living in areas that might become home to a complete street in the future. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans said reducing the number of lanes on Main from four to two would have a negative effect on commuters from

her ward. Despite the good intentions of the complete street plan, that’s a concern worth considering. In a similar vein, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said Ottawa needs to “ensure we’re not designing all our streets in a way that chokes off traffic and the ability to transport people and goods.” Also a good point, but neither concern is reason enough not to make Main Street a more pleasant roadway for walkers and cyclists. They shouldn’t be ignored either. As the city’s intensification policies play out and more people live in the urban core, it will no longer be feasible for more people to drive around their neighbourhood. This scenario won’t be playing out the same way in the suburbs, which will remain reliant on automobiles for decades to come. The problem is, those people use the city’s urban core – for both work and pleasure – too. When they do, they’ll be riding in the comfort of their own automobiles. If we want our city’s roads to be as pleasant and as efficient as possible, automobiles must remain a big consideration for both city staff and councillors. Like with many political decisions, the grey area between the black and white is where many of the best answers lie. Making sure Ottawa is a great place for all of us to live, work and play must be the paramount concern in all decisions made at city hall.

What happens when Alfie comes back?

I

t will be a few months before we have an answer to the big sports question, so far, of 2013. Will Ottawa hockey fans boo Daniel Alfredsson? This is a bit of a trick question, because a percentage of people at the Sens arena have always booed Alfredsson. Those would be the Toronto Maple Leaf fans who have always hated Alfredsson for obscure historical reasons and have stumbled into the wrong arena. But for most fans, Ottawa fans, the moment of truth will come the first time Alfredsson’s new team, the Detroit Red Wings, visits. Will he be booed, like Alexei Yashin and Dany Heatley, or cheered, like Mike Fisher, when he returned to Scotiabank Place as a member of the Nashville Predators? Some people will never forgive Alfie for leaving Ottawa. Others will thank him for his many years of inspiring play for the Senators and wish him well. And some people will boo anyone not wearing a Senators uniform. There are many different kinds of sports fans, as you found out reading the Internet comments on the day Alfredsson announced he was leaving town. While much of the city was in numb shock, some fans had moved on by mid-afternoon. Online, they had already forgotten Alfie, as

Funny Town they happily discussed the team’s new acquisitions, Bobby Ryan and Clarke MacArthur, dropping scoring statistics into the conversation, speculating on the positive effects of the team becoming younger, as well as various issues relating to the salary cap and other esoteric abstractions. Meanwhile the rest of the city was in mourning. The rest of the city was talking about Alfredsson’s character, his contributions to the city, his leadership, his influence on young hockey players. People like this root passionately for the home team. They love Ottawa’s players because they play for Ottawa. The more prominent of those players, particularly those who become more involved in the community, are especially beloved.

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, July 18, 2013

Because these fans are so loyal to the players, they expect the players to be loyal to them. But hockey, like all sports, like all society, doesn’t seem to work that way anymore. Players are not loyal to teams, teams are not loyal to players -- at least, not forever. Stars like Alfredsson leave because they see a better chance of winning somewhere else, or because they are offered more money. Teams trade popular veteran players, like Mike Fisher, because they think they can get something in return, or simply to dump some salary. It is a business, as we are constantly reminded. This is a tough thing to explain to a young fan and you put off explaining it for as long as you can. People thought that Alfredsson was different, but it turned out he wasn’t. People thought the Senators would do anything to keep Alfredsson in Ottawa, and it turned out that they wouldn’t. Some of us would like it to be otherwise, but it’s a business. We should know that, from looking at the prices we pay to get in and from looking at the reports of the salaries players are making and the vast amounts of cash laid out for television rights. But there is a part of every sports fan that is a starry-eyed little kid, just

wanting to cheer for the home team, worship the stars and not know anything about the financial details. And it’s probably that little kid who keeps coming back, despite strikes, lockouts, drug scandals and all the other unpleasantness that has been plaguing professional sport in recent years. We want to believe the best of our athletes and the teams they play for. Our faith isn’t always rewarded, but it is often enough to keep us in the game. Over the years, Alfie was one of those who helped us keep the faith, which is why it is so difficult to see him go.

Arts - Whether it’s peanuts, walnuts, almonds, pecans or pistachios, Michelle Nel Chow needs to watch out. Her five-year-old son Nolan suffers life-threatening allergies to multiple foods, including peanuts and tree nuts. And while Nel Chow is well versed in what Nolan can and can’t eat, it’s sometimes hard to explain to babysitters, teachers or grandparents. It’s especially hard because foods with the peanut-free logo aren’t automatically ok for Nolan because they can still contain tree nuts. She decided to write a series of books for kids about allergies, and recently released To Be a Nut or Not, the first in the planned series. She’s already written several articles about living with life-threatening allergies for Allergic Living Magazine. “I wanted creative, completely off-the-wall ways to bring up (allergies),” Nel Chow said. “There are many products that have a peanut-free logo, but they contain tree nuts. But a caregiver

or a grandparent might assume its safe – but it’s not.” While Nolan has had allergies since infancy, Nel Chow said the books can help parents of children who have to be taught what foods they can and can’t eat. “It’s a safe way for kids with allergies to learn what to avoid,” she said. She hopes that teachers will be able to use it as a resource, and has sent copies of the book to different organizations that distribute or promote allergy resources. Nel Chow said she would eventually like to see the book sold as an educational resource for elementary school libraries and classrooms. She went into her son’s Orléans elementary school to read the book to his classmates, and she said it started a good discussion about what nuts he’s allergic to, and other friends and siblings with allergies. “It opens up a conversation, and from there the conversation grows,” Nel Chow said. “Questions like, ‘What about coconuts?’ And funny enough, coconuts aren’t a nut.” She got the idea for the book

Tramps were common on the farm in Depression years

F

ather was sure there was a hidden sign nailed to a tree, only visible to the countless tramps who rode the rails that said, “Jump here: good food up the hill.” Deep in the heart of the Depression years, almost as if they were put there to remind us there was someone in worse shape than we were, tramps walked the back roads, rode the freight trains and survived by begging for their next meal. Countless numbers found their way to our kitchen door, always around dinner time, looking for something to eat. They frightened me, although Father said they were harmless, and I was glad that if they did surface at night, we never saw them. My brothers were sure they often came up over the West Hill and slept in the barn where they were warm and away from the outdoor elements. They seemed to know on the farm the big meal was at the noon hour. They also seemed to know when

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories the family was all seated at the table, because that was when we would hear the gentle knock on the door. They never had to ask for something to eat: we knew why they were there. Mother would look them over and if they were clean, having taken a wash in the Bonnechere River before coming up the hill, they were invited in. If they looked like they needed a hand-scrub, Mother would take out a wash basin of warm soapy water, put it on the back stoop and told them to come in when they had washed up. The brothers would squeeze together on the bench and make room for the tramp and Mother would laden a plate full of food. I would watch mesmerized as the food vanished as if they

hadn’t eaten in days – there was a good chance they hadn’t. Father would try to make conversation, but the tramps said little. We five children clammed up as if we had lost our tongues. I wanted to know where they had come from and how they had become tramps, but of course I too sat mute while the food disappeared. As quickly as they came, they spent just enough time to cram in their heaping plates of food and then they stood and were ready to head out again. Mother would tell them to sit a spell and we always knew what she was going to do because it never varied all the time we lived through those Depression years. She would take a brown

ness knows where. We never saw the same tramp twice. They came in all shapes and sizes, and all ages. Some of them, I thought, were no more than boys, young like my three brothers. I would wonder why they were tramps, and my brothers weren’t. Then one day I learned at least a partial answer to that question. The young tramp that rapped on our kitchen door that day was whip thin and as clean as a whistle. His hair was coal-black and slicked down, showing that he had taken more than a quick wash in the river. Just as he finished tucking into his second piece of pie, he asked Father for a job. He talked more than any other tramp we had ever fed. He was what was called a “home boy.” He came from England as a 12 year old, he said, from an orphanage. He was sent to a farm in the Ottawa Valley, where he suffered from abuse and endless hours of labour. Father told him there was no money for a hired

man and besides, we had three strapping boys to do the chores. But the tramp persevered. He told Father if he could sleep in the barn and have three meals a day and a flat-fifty of cigarettes every Saturday night, he would work for nothing. That was how one of those tramps who rode the rails and depended on the generosity of others, became our hired man. He really became a member of the family and I would often see Father slip the man, who was really a boy, a dollar when he could spare it. The tramps were a symbol of that era. We knew not where they had come from or where they were going. It mattered little what time of year it was. Winter or summer, almost daily we could count on seeing a tramp coming up over the West Hill. They were never turned away. They came hungry and they left with full bellies and enough food to take them to the next stop on their endless journey.

paper bag off the rack at the back door. Then she would go to the bake table and make thick sandwiches of whatever meat we had had for dinner. Always she would tuck in cookies or a big piece of pie and then she would go to the ice box and with the ice pick would chip off big slivers of ice and put them into a glass jar that at one time held pickles or preserves, filling it with cold water from the granite pail. Often I would see the tramp wipe his eyes with the back of his hand, as he thanked Mother and tucked the bulging paper bag into the sack he carried on the end of a short pole resting on his shoulder. He would go as quietly as he came, out the back door and down the hill, making his way to the railroad tracks. I knew he would be waiting until the next freight train rounded the corner at the very back of the farm. It would slow down to handle the curve in the track. Father said this was where they would jump on the train and go off to good-

Arts - The sixth annual Greely Legion Country Music Festival promises another toe-tappin, foot-stompin weekend of music and merriment beginning July 26. This year’s outdoor festival, which runs Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28, will welcome Douglas, Ont., band The Douglas Connection to headline on Saturday night – their first performance inside Ottawa proper. “They’ve been at the Shawville festival, but not as far east as Ottawa,” said organizer Linda Wyman. “This is something new in Ottawa, a new entertainment for us.” Other headliners include Howard Hayes, Lauren Hall and Roger Damphousse, and WRD, an Ottawa-area old-time country band that includes local legend Wilf Arsenault. The festival will also welcome the McWilliams Boys from Navan – a set of six brothers under the age of 12 who will lead the audience in song and step dance. More than 15 performers, bands and country acts will take the stage over the weekend, beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Friday with a performance from WRD. “There’s a good variety,” Wyman said. “There’s a lot of old time music, but there’s some gospel, too – the Gallagher family will be there. We haven’t ventured far from what we’re doing.” Rough camping on the legion’s large property at 8021 Mitch Owens Rd. will open by June 24, and meals will be available at the legion for a nominal cost beginning on Saturday morning. Weekend camper passes are $40 per person in advance or $45 at the gate. Walk-in day passes are $10 on Friday and Sunday and $20 on Saturday. All proceeds will be donated to the Winchester District Memorial Hospital. Wyman said the legion hopes to beat last year’s $4,000 donation. She’s also keeping an eye on the sky for good weather. “I hope it goes off without a hitch,” she said.

It all seems rather hopeless for Europe’s debtor-nations. Four of them — Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Greece — have needed bailouts since the beginning of the global debt crisis. The underlying cause of this is too much government spending, financed with too much debt. History has shown us that these governments can transform themselves, because it has been done before. Over the last two decades Germany, Israel and Canada have overcome debt and unemployment problems by departing from a culture of big government, towards one of free enterprise. In Germany only 25 years ago, a fifth of the population lived under communism. In his first term in office, Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s socialist policies made Germany the sick man of Europe. After four years, the country suffered a 10% unemployment rate and debt levels that exceeded the European Union’s allowable limits. In 2003, Schroeder underwent a transformation and introduced policies which cut welfare programs, simplified labour rules and lowered taxes for businesses and workers. Since then, unemployment has fallen by almost half to 5.3%. This is more than seven points below the Euro-zone average. Unlike its neighbours, the German government is expected to balance its budget by next year.

Israel has also revamped its welfare state. In 2003, thenFinance Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recognized the need to change from the socialist policies of the day. According to the authors of Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle, “Netanyahu cut tax rates, transfer payments, public employee wages and 4,000 government jobs. He also privatized major symbols of the remaining government influence on the economy — such as the national airline, El Al, and the national telecommunications company, Bezeq — and instituted financial-sector reforms.” The result is that Israel now enjoys one of the most energetic and durable economies, despite having scarce natural resources and no friendly trading partners in the region. The jobless rate has fallen by almost half since the reforms, despite today’s global economic slump. What worked for Israel is working for Canada. Approximately 20 years ago, Canada signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which expanded one of the most successful trade relationships ever. Since that time, government spending as a share of the economy has plummeted from 50% to 41%, allowing for lower business and personal taxes. Since 1985, the federal government has privatized 30 state-owned entities, totalling $12 billion. These combined factors led the Heritage Foundation to report that Canada has the 6th freest economy in the world, ahead of the United States at 10th. Such economic freedom has given Canada the lowest net debt-to-GDP ratio in the G8, a record number of people employed and a one-third drop in the jobless rate since the reforms began two decades ago. In fact, the story is the same in all three jurisdictions: less debt and more jobs than their competitors. If the four bail-out nations had taken the same steps 20 years ago, we would not have a debt crisis in Europe today. Fortunately, it is never too late to do the right thing. Pierre Poilievre MP Nepean-Carleton A version of this article originally appeared in the National Post.

Korean beef salad healthy and tasty

T

his makes a terrific warm, glutenfree and dairy-free meal. To save time, prepare the vegetables while the beef marinates. Preparation time: 30 minutes. Marinating time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 20 minutes. Serves four. INGREDIENTS

• 50 ml (1/4 cup) tamari or soy sauce • 25 ml (2 tbsp) liquid honey • 15 ml (1 tbsp) sesame oil • 4 cloves garlic, crushed • 5 ml (1 tsp) hot chili sauce (such as sriracha) • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) ďŹ nely grated ginger root • 250 g (8 oz) thinly sliced deli-cooked beef • 125 g (4 oz) thin vermicelli rice noodles • 15 ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil 750 ml (3 cups) thinly sliced mushrooms • 375 ml (1 1/2 cups) thinly sliced sweet red pepper • 4 green onions, sliced • 4 large leaves of lettuce • 15 ml (1 tbsp) toasted sesame seeds • 50 ml (1/4 cup) fresh coriander leaves (optional)

PREPARATION

In a bowl, mix together the tamari sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic, hot chili sauce and ginger root. Cut the beef slices into one-centimetre (1/2inch) wide strips and stir them into the marinade. Let the marinating beef stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the vermicelli according to the package directions and drain well. Measure out 1 litre (4 cups) of vermicelli and set aside. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Cook the mushrooms, red pepper and half of the green onions in the skillet, stirring, for three to five minutes or until mushrooms are golden. Drain the marinade from the beef and add it to the skillet, cooking for one-to-two minutes or just until no liquid remains. To serve, place a lettuce leaf on each plate and top each with 250 ml (1 cup) vermicelli, then one-quarter of the meat mixture. Garnish with the remaining green onions, sesame seeds and coriander, if it is being used.

anti-romantic comedy you can see,” Massingham said. Originally set in 1885, Massingham said he has set the play in a more contemporary setting. The company said they are aiming to attract both Shaw enthusiasts as well as anyone else who may be walking through the park. “People are going to find it’s more than a play. It’s a bit of an event and really the play starts from the moment people entre the park,” Massingham said. This year the company will also be offering indoor matinees, a first for the company, which will hold shows at Academic Hall Theatre at the University of Ottawa with performances starting at 2 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays.

Arts - Theatre under the stars welcomes audience members to take part in a farce this summer as Odyssey Theatre brings one of George Bernard Shaw’s plays outdoors for the first time. Odyssey will present Shaw’s Arms and the Man beginning July 25 at Strathcona Park. According the play’s director, Andy Massingham, this will be the first time one of Shaw’s plays will be performed outside. It will also feature actors in masks – something Odyssey

Theatre is known for. There will be little to no set, drawing the audience into the words and actions of the play. “It’s going to be like a dream and the audience will see that life is a farce,” Massingham said. The director added the costumes will be very eye-catching along with the masks and other actors in heavy makeup. “It’s going to feel like you are looking at a painting,” he said. Dubbed an anti-romantic comedy, Shaw’s play explores love, war and social status. “It’s possibly the funniest

The performance has got a few helping hands this season as eight high school students are participating in the company’s youth apprenticeship program. The students get to experience a professional theatre company first hand. From stage directing, administration, acting and front of the house experience, these youth get the opportunity to learn as much as they can from Odyssey during the summer months. The program also offers students the opportunity to collect volunteer hours. “You get so much more than just hours,” added Cléa Spencer, one of the youth apprentices. “I recommend this program to anyone who is interested in theatre.” Massingham said the experience is much more educational than sitting in a classroom. “It’s the ultimate summer camp,” he said. “This is not drama class, it’s a show. We all, including the students, have our blood, sweat and tears in this.” Regular performances are Tuesday through Sunday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $24 for general admission, $19 for students and seniors and $9 for children under 12. Matinees are $15 for general admission and $9 for children under 12. Families can purchase group tickets for $45 for the matinee shows and $60 for the evening shows. More information about the company or the youth apprenticeship is available at odysseytheatre.ca.

Barrhaven father publishes family story Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Arts - From heists during the Second World War to raising a family of squirrel pups, Mark Tushingham has imagined it all. Tushingham, a Barrhaven resident, launched his two latest books – Inspired and Dedicated Thief and The Legendary Tales of the Churkahs – at the Pinecrest Chapters on June 29. Civil servant by weekday and writer on the weekend, Tushingham’s first book Hotter than Hell depicted a dark vision of the world devastated by climate change. He said The Legendary Tales of the Churkahs was actually his first foray into writing. It’s the story of a family of squirrel pups the Tushinghams raised when his children were younger. “I originally wrote the story for my son when he was younger,” Tushingham said. “We would read him a chapter a night and he was always begging to hear more. I think that’s really the best praise.” The story is about a family

of four squirrels who must find their way in the world after being raised by humans. They are despised by their own kind and have to go on a journey to find their mother. The squirrels Tushingham based his story on are native eastern grey squirrels. He said he enjoyed the research. “Unlike more exotic animals, every child has seen a squirrel,” he said. “Kids can relate to them and will be surprised at their hidden lives.” The concept of turning the everyday into the extraordinary carried over to his other novel, Inspired and Dedicated Thief. The story is about five downtrodden and disillusioned people who combine their talents to do the impossible – steal 11 tons of gold from the French bullion reserves stored on Martinique. The cache the fictional quintet stole was worth $400 million, but they didn’t use high-priced technology or superpowers, said Tushingham. “They just had to work really hard,” he said. “The story is about ordinary people committing a crime and how it

changes their lives afterward.” Tushingham wrote Inspired and Dedicated Thief during the economic recession in 2008. “There were a lot of people in dire straights,” Tushingham said. I wanted to capture that feeling,” Tushingham said he plans another novel soon, but is still deciding on the subject matter. No matter the material, his goal is to make every book a page turner. “As a reader I was always into suspense novels,” he said. “The best compliment for me is when someone says they can’t put my book down.” The Legendary Tales of the Churkahs and Inspired and Dedicated Thief are both selfpublished, something Tushingham said was necessary when his former publisher went under. But thanks to their help he already had a edited manuscript, so getting the books printed was easier than he thought. The two latest books are Submitted available at the Pinecrest Road Mark Tushingham, author of the two-book series Hotter than Hell and Hell on Earth, at Chapters and the Coles in Bar- the Pinecrest Chapters on June 29 for the launch of his two latest novels, Inspired and rhaven. Dedicated Thief and The Legendary Tales of the Churkahs.

Sandra Oh returns home for key to the city Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

Arts - Sandra Oh, known for playing Dr. Christina Yang on the television show Grey’s Anatomy, returned home on July 8 to accept the key to the city. Oh grew up in Nepean, and got an early start acting at Knoxdale Public School and Sir Robert Borden High School. Oh was the opposite of the stern character television fans are used to seeing, as she laughed, smiled and several times, wiped tears from her eyes as she accepted the key at city hall. Her family, including her parents who still live in Nepean, and siblings all sat with the star at the city hall presentation. Besides Grey’s Anatomy, Oh has been in many independent films, and won two Genie Awards and a Golden Globe. Before she was presented with the key to the city, the audience watched a highlight reel of her work from when she received her star on Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2011. She dedicated a large part of her speech to her two young nieces, who grinned ear to ear when their aunt spoke to them about living with good values. “You can own the key to the city, to whatever city you live in, if you are responsible for a life well lived,” Oh said. “And I wish that for the both

of you.” Oh’s first performance was in a play called the Canada Goose at Knoxdale Public School. “And then going along Greenbank to SRB, a huge part of my entire time in high school was the Canada Improv Games,” she said. “I did so much of my training and acting in those formative years from Grade 9 to 13. I can’t tell you how much that training affected my career, so deeply.” She also danced at Nepean’s Les Petits Ballets throughout her youth. Many of her teachers and friends returned to city hall to see her accept the key. She stopped to point out several teachers, friends, and even her first boyfriend sitting in the crowd. At one point, the current Sir Robert Borden principal came out to present Oh with a painted ceiling tile. As class president, Oh had promised advocating for painted ceiling tiles as a part of her campaign speech, something that didn’t happen during her year term as head girl. Oh said her parents, JoonSoo and Young-Nam Oh, who immigrated to Ottawa from Korea, are well-respected in Ottawa’s Korean community. While they’ve come to many award shows with her, she said getting the key was special because it was one of the first times her entire family had been able to share an award with her.

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Mayor Jim Watson sits with actor Sandra Oh as she answers questions before receiving the key to the city. “I have shamelessly brought my parents to almost every award show,” she said. “But this is very different. My entire family is here, and the entire community I grew up with is here. These are people who have watched me grow up.”

Aries, work to strengthen a relationship with a coworker or acquaintance. Developing this relationship now will bear fruit down the road. Taurus, take some time for quiet contemplation this week. You have a lot of things on your mind and need to work through them before you can focus on other things. Gemini, you may find yourself on a spending spree and it may be difficult to know when to put your credit cards away. Bring a friend along to help you reign in your spending. Cancer, with so many big decisions looming on the horizon, you may be thinking of running away from it all. But all of your problems will still be waiting for you when you get back. Leo, people have been coming at you from all angles and you’re ready for a break. Retreat to a quiet place sometime this week and pamper yourself. A change of scenery breathes new life into your daily routine, Virgo. Although it may be temporary, you will embrace the opportunities to recharge for a while.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Libra, a new job may give you a new perspective on life. Make the most of this new perspective and apply it to both the personal and professional parts of your life. Scorpio, sometimes people just do not get your sense of humor, so don’t be upset if a joke doesn’t garner the laughs you anticipated. Your closest companions will still share a laugh. Sagittarius, you will host a house full of guests this week. This role suits you well, so don’t worry as the party draws closer and the pressure begins to mount. Capricorn, the final countdown until big changes are in store has begun. Are you ready for all of the things you still have to get done? If not, get busy and enlist a few helpers. Aquarius, you are often supportive of those around you and they appreciate that support. Continue to be a valued friend and confidante, and you’ll be happy you did. Pisces, you may have to ask for some help this week. Accept this support and recognize it’s necessary to get the job done.
