The giving spirit of Christmas is alive and well inside the school-aged classroom at the Greely First Steps Daycare, where kids aged six to 11 and their leaders are collecting non-perishable food items for the Osgoode food cupboard. Though it’s billed Christmas in July, the group will collect items until the end of August.

News - City council is doubling down by asking the province if Ottawa can have two gambling sites. While council had already indicated a preference to see gambling options expanded where they already exist in Ottawa – at the Rideau Carleton Raceway – the vote on July 17 means councillors would like to see another casino site in addition to keep-

ing at least 21 gaming tables at the raceway. The move was in response to what Mayor Jim Watson and councillors have been hearing from residents, said Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who proposed the motion. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson represents the raceway in his ward. He said he brought the largest petition he can recall a politician presenting: a 70,000-signature petition supporting saving

jobs at the raceway by keeping gambling there. “There must be a fair and open process for casino bidding,� Watson said, adding that he feels there has been plenty of consultation on the issue already. All members of council supported Tierney’s move to refer the discussion to a special meeting of the finance and economic development committee on Aug. 26 so public delegates could come speak to the concept of creating two

gambling zones in Ottawa. But that doesn’t mean the idea of having two casinos has unanimous support around the council horseshoe. One of the most vocal casino opponents, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, dissented on the parts of the motion asking for two gambling zones for Ottawa. “This is confirmation of a pre-determined outcome that we want more gaming in Ottawa,� Deans said, noting that perhaps the city might want to

do more consultation on the matter before coming to that conclusion. That’s why she voted in favour of sending the matter to the committee on Aug. 26. The move made other councillors happy, though, because it removed the perception that city council is favouring one community institution – the raceway – over another, like the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre.

100-year-old come a long way from 1913 log cabin Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – In 1913, Canada was a booming, young country less than 50 years old. Even as thousands of immigrants poured into the country, many

regions of the Great White North remained unsettled and wild. In Ontario’s far north, many settlements were only accessible by canoe or foot. It was in one of these towns – Elk Lake between North Bay and

Timmins – where Elizabeth “Lib” Cranston was born in a log cabin on July 16, 1913. “To get there you took the train to end of the rail, then canoed down the lake for 50 miles, and finally overland for five miles,” wrote Cranston

in an autobiography given to Orchard View Living Centre where she now lives in Manotick Station. “This was quite a trek, but we managed to have my mother’s piano brought in which provided much enjoyment.” On Sunday, July 14 Cranston celebrated her 100th birthday at Orchard View surrounded by friends and family. Her biography depicts a full and interesting life throughout a century of change. Cranston lived through two world wars, survived the flu epidemic of 1918 and was burned out of her home by northern forest fires more than once. Defying the times, she later earned a master’s degree in social work and worked in the field in Toronto for several years before she married. After her marriage she dedicated her life to volunteer work and helped found a centre for young adults with cerebral palsy, which still operates in Toronto today. All this despite – or because of – her northern childhood. “I think it was her upbringing in the north; it creates strong people,” said her son James Cranston, who was visiting from Vancouver for his mother’s milestone. “She had a strong family, a strong mother. Her father ran a mine and they had to adapt.” When Cranston was a young girl, her family moved even further north so her father could make more money at a bigger mine near Gowganda. There, she and her brother trapped muskrats, snared rabbits and picked berries to sell for a little extra spending money. She spent summers in Toronto with her mother. When Cranston was a teenager, she and her siblings moved to Toronto year-round to attend high school, since Gowganda’s school only offered two years of it. From there she took a mathematics degree at the University of Toronto, followed by her master’s. She worked for the public service helping unem-

Lib Cranston celebrates her 100th birthday at Orchard View Living Centre in Manotick Station on Sunday, July 14. Cranston was born July 16, 1913. ployed people before marrying her husband shortly before World War II. She and her husband, and later their two children James and Ann, moved around a lot. The early war years were spent in Nova Scotia, and then Cranston came to Arnprior to stay with her mother-in-law until the war was over. “There I volunteered on the ration board, typed blood, rolled wool and took a St. John’s Ambulance course,” Cranston wrote in her autobiography. The family returned to Toronto for several years then resettled in Galt, near Cambridge, for 15 years where Cranston was treasurer of the Victorian Order of Nurses. When they arrived in Ottawa, Cranston immediately took up a volunteer position with the May Court Club of Ottawa, which she maintained for many years. Cranston’s daughter Ann Blair said moving around as a child made her and her brother as adaptable as their mother was. “She inspired us to be independent,” Blair said. “We were a strong family; they were very supportive parents.

They made the transitions easy for us but they also made it a natural thing.” Blair said she believes her mother’s love of the outdoors has been a factor in her longevity. “She has a saying, ‘If you don’t use it, you lose it.’ So she was always very physically active,” Blair said. “After my husband’s retirement at age 70 we spent over 20 years cottaging, traveling, golfing and skiing (downhill until the age of 87 – what a thrill!),” Cranston wrote. They continued to golf and crosscountry ski until the age of 92, when her husband died. That year Cranston also gave up her car, although she still went to her cottage in Arnprior for the summer. But loneliness convinced her to move closer to her daughter in Manotick. “I tried living alone but it was no fun so I moved to Orchard View Living Centre in 2006,” Cranston wrote. “Looking back over 100 years, from a remote log cabin to the world of today, who would ever have imagined such change. I love Orchard View and now call it home.”

The committee is also reaching out to community groups that may have a stake in the outcome of the park.

In 2015 the committee would install a pavilion on the abutment similar to the one overlooking the water from

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, July 25, 2013

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The first piece of a proposed Remembrance Park in Manotickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dickinson Square could be installed this fall in the form of a brick walkway from Bridge Street to the cenotaph. A community advisory committee led by the Manotick Legion has been designing a park in honour of Manotick veterans along the eastern edge of Dickinson Street. This fall, the city will realign Dickinson to its counterpart Dickinson Circle across Bridge Street, and at the same time plans to install a sidewalk leading into the square. The committee is hoping the city will upgrade the sidewalk to an interlocking brick path, to extend the current veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walkway already established between Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill and the cenotaph. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said he has asked staff to include the brick specification in the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tender, which will go out this summer in time for fall construction. While Moffatt recognized that interlocking brick may be more expensive than asphalt, he said cost wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule it out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The budget was approved; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s space there and some wiggle room,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And you never know what contractors come up with in the bidding process.â&#x20AC;? At a community barbecue on Sunday, July 14, committee member Ted Ross displayed an early schematic of the proposed park, which he said was well-received. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone I talked to thought it was a great use of space and they liked the idea that it was almost an extension of the cenotaph,â&#x20AC;? Ross said. The park would include heritage gardens, benches and a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thank-you monument. The current brick platform around the cenotaph would be expanded northward to make it easier for the honour guard to stand during Remembrance Day ceremonies. While Ross wanted that expansion to be included in the sidewalk project this fall, Moffatt said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not possible.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would have to be separate but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we can look at in the future,â&#x20AC;? Moffatt said, noting the city has funding avenues for such projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus on getting the road done.â&#x20AC;? The committee has a preliminary timeline that would officially open the park in the spring of 2017, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge. This year the committee hopes to finalize a detailed concept plan with the help of Rudy Levstek, the same architect who designed AY Jackson Park. His services are being covered by developer Joe Princiotta.

Councillor goes the distance for Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill flag men Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt went the extra mile â&#x20AC;&#x201C; specifially 106 kilometres â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to make sure Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill campers had safe crossing during the MiniWheats camp last week. On Friday, July 12 Moffatt drove to Potsdam, New York, about an hour drive from his North Gower home, to buy two plastic green flag men for the mill. Groups in Dickinson Square have long been concerned about unwieldy drivers and poor visibility on Dickinson Street during childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programming. The $30 items were donated from Moffattâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office budget. Moffatt said he had spent several days searching for the Step 2 Kid Alert Visual Warning System at various Ottawa stores, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find any. He then tried to have them shipped here from several stores just over the US border, with no luck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I just took a drive down to Potsdam to get them and came back,â&#x20AC;? he said.

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Two green flag men stand guard at Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill on July 18. Moffatt downplayed the gesture â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;if I had to go Orleans it would take me longer,â&#x20AC;? he said â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the effort touched mill manager Isabelle Geoffrion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He takes his role seriously, and he takes issues seriously,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wanted to make sure this was done in time for the Mini-Wheats camp.â&#x20AC;? Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill has been working with the councillor for several months to solve the chronic traffic issues through the square. Many drivers use Dickin-

Cruising Your Way

son Street as a cut-through to avoid back-ups at Bridge and Manotick Main Streets. Since the millâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bathrooms and other amenities are in the Carriage Shed, kids are constantly crossing a street which lacks a crosswalk but boasts a long, blind curve worsened by parked cars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The (flag men are) very easy because they can just put them out when they need them,â&#x20AC;? Moffatt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It addresses their immediate concern.â&#x20AC;? On July 18, the flag men effectively narrowed Dickinson to one lane as cars braked to get by them, making life easier for the camp counsellors and children alike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visible and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working,â&#x20AC;? Geoffrion said. Of course, Geoffrion said the mill is still looking for a more permanent solution to the problem. City staff are working to collect speed and traffic data from the area, but are struggling for an appropriate speed board location with enough of a sight line to accurately collect the data.

Spaghetti dinner raises $8,100 Earn Extra Money! Keep Your Weekends Free! for Winchester cancer unit Staff

-R0012216489_0725

News - The Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation’s cancer fund is $8,100 richer thanks to the Russell Knights of Columbus. This spring, the knights hosted close to 180 residents for their annual spaghetti supper. In the past, the supper has been dedicated to a local resident who lost their battle with cancer, and the money was given to the Canadian Cancer Foundation. This year, the Knights directed R0012216466_0725 their fundraising to the hospital foundation’s cancer fund instead. The donation was made in memory of Monica Baker, a Russell resident and member of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church who lost her five-year battle with ovarian cancer in 2012. Although Monica’s husband Darren is not a member of the Russell Knights of Columbus, the local council surrounded his family with love and support at the event on March 2. “Monica had an amazing propensity for friendship, hope, love, kindness and generosity, a loving smile and a comforting integrity,” her obituary read on October 18, 2012. “A truly decent, strong and thoughtful woman, she was always welcoming and supportive, with a sense of humour that helped everyone. She will be sadly missed by her family and many friends in Ottawa and around the globe.” The council decided to direct this year’s funds to the local cancer fund as a result of excellent cancer care received by many of the local council’s family and friends. For example, Dr. Darrell Menard, one of the event organizers, shared that his wife’s breast cancer was diagnosed at a very early stage as a result of the digital mammography machine at WDMH. He added that many of his patients have also benefited directly from the excellent cancer care program at the hospital. The cancer fund covers several cancer support programs as well as an oncology fund that provides necessary equipment for the Brian Hough Cancer Unit. Cancer treat-

ment equipment like a Baxter triple channel pump for chemotherapy drugs and a Trendelenburg stretcher chair are currently on the hospital’s priority list. The spaghetti dinner raised a total of $6,100. To the delight of event organizers, the Russell Scotiabank matched $2,000 of that, bringing the total donation to $8,100. On Thursday, May 30, representatives from the Russell Knights of Columbus and Scotiabank’s Russell branch presented the hospital foundation with both cheques.

Now you see it, soon you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

O

nce again, city council has come up with a politically-savvy solution to the question of where to build a casino: build two of them. Last week, council members were slapping each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backs and tweeting merrily after they agreed to ask the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation for permission to build two gaming facilities in Ottawa. Never mind that the OLG has already denied such a request before. The provincial gaming authority has said numerous times that Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;zoneâ&#x20AC;? can only accommodate one casino. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote is little more than an attempt to assuage the complaints from Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, who is hoping to bring a gaming facility to Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. If the OLG turns down Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for two casinos, the city will move ahead with its default location: the racetrack. This marvelous sleight of hand highlights the fact the casinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location is a purely political decision made before any studies, consultation or rational debate has taken place. Earlier this month, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance committee approved sole sourcing the casino, located at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway, a motion proposed and pushed by Mayor Jim Watson. Never mind that the

mayor was flip-flopping on his previous promise to make the selection process an open competition. This was a decision based on political pressure. Lobby groups and supporters of the racetrack made their preference known and highlighted the 2014 municipal election date on Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calendar. Melnyk wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly thrilled with the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion. Lawyer in tow, he showed up at the finance committee meeting and blasted council for not providing a level playing field for bids, suggesting the process wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly legal. An independent legal review indicated it is legal. It certainly isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t how council has conducted business in the past. Usually, the city allows an open bidding process and holds public consultations to figure out if residents want a proposed building/business in the first place. But why destroy a perfectly sound political decision with the principles of good decision making and democratic tradition? The mayor has dealt himself a winning hand, getting council to approve a plan that pleases everyone, yet has small chance of approval. We can only admire the shuffling ability of the mayor, who, like an experienced card shark has deftly maneuvered council to approve his motion. Two casinos? Now you see it, soon you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.

A place where you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be an expert

H

ereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scene from a cottage weekend. See if it seems familiar to you. Six guys, probably late teens, are on one of those pontoon boats. A pontoon boat is notoriously hard to manouevre, especially in a wind, and these guys are fishing off it. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get through a narrow opening between two islands. The opening is shallow and the bottom is covered with large boulders. The boat is trying to find its way through. To make matters more interesting, at least one of the anglers has caught bottom. So theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to avoid the boulders, get through the opening and also get the guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lure off the bottom. One of the guys stands in the bow, watching for rocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop!â&#x20AC;? he yells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reverse! Reverse!â&#x20AC;? The boat reverses, clumsily. Somehow the snagged hook is freed and the pontoon boat backs out of the narrow passage and safely into open water. Somehow the proverb: â&#x20AC;&#x153;God helps drunks and little children,â&#x20AC;? springs to mind, except that these guys werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t little and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be drunks either. Someone called out to them from the shore

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town to ask how they were doing and they held up a half dozen or so quite good-sized pickerel that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d somehow managed to catch off this pontoon boat that they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t steer very well. They were having the time of their lives and it served as a reminder of one of the great things about life at the lake in a Canadian summer: You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be good at it to enjoy it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious when you think about it. Watch men manhandling chunks of meat around a barbecue. Watch anyone manhandling a golf ball around a cottage country golf course. Watch the paddling and kayaking styles of the people who pass by the dock. In most of these activities, and with most people, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no great skill there, but there

is a large amount of enjoyment. What a relief it is, after the exacting demands of the city, to get to a place where it really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how much skill you have. Sure, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to be good at something. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also nice when it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter all that much. Beside a lake, there are no bosses, no alarm clocks, no buses to run after. Mastery of software does not enter into your existence. There are no updates to anything. There is no such thing as a cc, never mind a blind cc. There is no traffic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; once you get there. There is very little in the way of selfimprovement. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that at some lakes, children are offered lessons in this or that, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long and the kids might learn something they might be able to teach you. Not that it matters if you learn it all that well. The demands of cottage life are quite rudimentary. You have to be able to tolerate the noise children make. You have to be patient and learn to read a story out loud several times in a row. You have to be the kind of person dogs like. Knowing a few simple card games comes in handy. There are some basic safety things you have to learn, but they are

mostly common sense. Even driving a boat, while not all that easy, can be accomplished by a non-expert, because the margin of error on a lake is wider than on a city street. Along the way, you find and settle into the activities at which you can be an expert, that you might have forgotten over the year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taking a nap, telling jokes, eating gooey desserts, singing off-key, walking through the woods, exaggerating, unloading a boat, using a fly-swatter and figuring out whodunit. Easy. The rest of it is eating and sleeping, getting along with people and knowing when to wear a hat.

SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

En garde The sixth annual Osgoode Medieval Festival took people back in time to a century of knights in shining armour, archery, horse-back riding, and even sword-fighting, seen above. The weekend-long event, held July 12 to 14, is a popular tradition in Osgoode, and draws about 4,000 people from across the region.

UNRESERVED PUBLIC AUCTION

Golf tourney for ovarian cancer OTTAWA, ON emma.jackson@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Greely Foodland will host its first golf tournament this summer in support of Ovarian Cancer Canada. On August 28, Greely Foodland staff, family, friends and customers can enjoy 18 holes of golf followed by a catered dinner and an evening of camaraderie at the Metcalfe Golf Club. Cost for an individual is $125 or $500 for a foursome, with all proceeds going to Ovarian Cancer Canada. Foodland co-owner Kit MacKinnon said doctors discovered after her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death two years ago that she

had ovarian cancer. While it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cause of death, it does mean it runs in the family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I have to be checked, my daughters need to be checked and I just had a granddaughter,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big thing.â&#x20AC;? According to Ovarian Cancer Canada, more than 2,600 Canadian women are diagnosed with the disease every year, and about 1,750 of them will die. But when found early and treated, ovarian cancer survival rate is 90 per cent. Event organizer Cheryl Ozen said she hopes to raise about $4,000 for the cause. MacKinnon is hesitant to put a number on the first year.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything over a dollar and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be excited. But hopefully by year 10 people are booking a year in advance,â&#x20AC;? she said. The best ball game will have a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Participants will receive a gift bag worth $50, access to a golf cart, a catered dinner and the chance to win several contests and prizes. A silent auction will also feature a number of items donated from local businesses. Ozen said she is still looking for sponsors for various holes and contests. Participants can pick up their entry form at Greely Foodland. For more information or to sponsor the event call Ozen at 613-821-4895.

Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patience runs out for picnic

L

ifestyle - All Mother needed for an excuse to have a picnic was a sunny and hot Sunday

afternoon. After church, of course. Father, who thought the whole idea was nonsense, when you could spend the afternoon, having a little nap

in the grape arbour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That once-a-year church picnic is enough for me,â&#x20AC;? he lamented. Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resting in the summer often moved

him from the rocking chair in the kitchen with his feet on the oven door of the Findlay Oval, to the grape arbour, where an old lawn chair and the two-seater swing sat in the cool haven of the overhanging grape leaves. But of course, as for the Sunday picnic, Mother overruled and we five children were thrilled beyond belief... we would be spending the afternoon on the banks of the Bonnecherre. It was a hefty walk to get to the river, overloaded as we were with baskets of lunch, bats and balls, our swim suits and towels, Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newspapers, scrap books and diaries, and always I had to take at least one doll with me too. As long as Father had his pipe and a good supply of tobacco that was about all he was interested in lugging down to the Bonnechere. The cook stove would be allowed to go out on Saturday night. That meant a cold breakfast, which further annoyed Father, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider any meal worth pulling a chair up to the table for, unless it included meat and potatoes as part of the menu. But Mother let

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories the stove die down because that meant a nice cool kitchen when we got back from our picnic on Sunday, a rare treat from a stove that blasted out blistering heat waves 24 hours a day every other day of the week. As soon as we got back from church, and while the boys and Father tended to the last minute chores at the barn, Audrey and Mother would haul out of the ice box bowls of food that had been prepared the night before. This meant hard boiled eggs, mashed fine, sliced cold pork and roast beef, cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, and of course, a slab cake smothered in brown-sugar icing. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for thick sandwiches, sliced vegetables and a huge sealer of iced tea to be ready to pack into 11 quart baskets, all wrapped

in an ample supply of clean flour bag tea towels. We had enough food to feed half of Renfrew County! As much as could be, would be piled on the little wagon with the wobbly tin wheels, and which I used to hitch our old collie dog to, to pull my dolls around the yard. But it was better than lugging the heavy baskets down to the river. We always went to the same spot on the Bonnechere. This was where the old maple tree had long since fallen across the narrowest part of the river, and where there was a wide grassy bank and more trees. My sister Audrey spread out two blankets and covered the little wagon with another to keep the lunch as cold as possible. See MARY page 15

Even though we had yet to eat the lunch, I knew Father wouldn’t be back. And I knew too, the cow had little to do with it. When the sun was heading for the west, and we had eaten the lunch, the boys had dried off, and everything was packed onto the little red wagon, Father still hadn’t come back. Mother assured me he would be just fine. “He just doesn’t like picnics,” she said. We gathered up our belongings and started for

home. I saw it before anyone else. There was smoke coming out of the chimney over our house! Mother just let out a long and laboured sigh when I pointed it out to her. We opened the kitchen door to blazing heat, and there was Father sitting at the old pine table. He hadn’t bothered taking off his straw hat, and in front of him was a dinner plate piled high with fried potatoes, slabs of salt pork, and enough buttered bread to feed a family of six!

The white granite tea pot was boiling on the stove, and Father had opened a jar of preserves and they weren’t in a fruit nappy, but in a soup bowl! “Well, so much for a nice cool kitchen,” was all Mother said. Finally, Father stopped shovelling in his food long enough to look up from his plate and say to Mother. “A man can’t be expected to work from dawn to dusk EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND and survive on a sandwich and a piece of cake,” he then took another long slurp of hot tea from his saucer.

Greely teen sets the bar high in national competition Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Sports – Larissa Brown is soaring to new heights after she smashed a long-standing Canadian high jump record on her first try July 6. The 14-year-old St. Mark Catholic High School student was already registered for two track events at the Boiling Point Track Classic, which welcomes all track and field athletes with a disability to compete at the Terry Fox athletics facility. Larissa is visually impaired and competes in category T12 (track) or F12 (field), which means she has some perception of light and movement. As a burgeoning track star, she planned to compete in the 100-metre and 200-metre dashes. But that Thursday, she asked her coach at the Ottawa Lions Club if she could try high jump as well. With a white t-shirt tied to the bar and the help of a guide, she attempted a jump that evening and found she was a natural. She signed up for Saturday’s event. Two days later during

warm-up, Larissa casually cleared 1.30 metres, the Canadian women’s F12 high jump record set in 1987. “They said they need to get an official over there to measure it,” Larissa’s mother Sue Brown said. “They knew she was going to break the record.” Larissa cleared 1.40 metres in competition, winning the event and also setting a new Canadian women’s record for the F12 category. “I couldn’t believe it. I was so surprised,” Larissa said. Six other Canadian records were broken at the seventh annual Boiling Point meet. The young field hero also performed on the track, winning first in her 200m heat and finishing second in the 100m final, crossing just behind American blade runner April Holmes. We are so thrilled,” Brown said. “We never expected she would do so well, especially so young. But it’s opened so many doors for her.” NATURAL ATHLETE

Until last year she was heavily involved in competitive dance, but had to quit when her vision worsened and she couldn’t decipher the choreography. Without dancing, Larissa faced a void. “She was so involved and all of a sudden we had a lot of time on our hands,” Brown said. One day in early spring, Larissa and her family visited the Terry Fox facility and saw several visually impaired athletes training. Larissa decided to try track, and joined the Ottawa Lions Club team in March. Since she had joined an

able-bodied group, at first Larissa felt badly that her peers had to act as her guide on the track even though they were paying to run themselves. But as luck would have it, no one in Larissa’s age group was fast enough to be her guide anyway. She recently moved up to a university-level training team where the runners were able to match her speedy stride. Now she trains three nights a week with a regular “twilight meet” on Wednesday evenings. She hopes to add high jump training on Saturdays. While breaking the high jump record was a happy shock, Larissa said she will focus on her track performance so she can someday compete at the Paralympic Games. Currently, women’s high jump does not exist at the Paralympic level. “My goal this year is to beat my personal bests for the 100m and 200m, and hopefully someday Canadian records as well,” she said. Larissa will enter Grade 9 at St. Mark Catholic High School in Manotick this fall.

MP Pierre Poilievre, newly named Minister of State for Democratic Reform, will be responsible for Senate and electoral reform.

l

COMBINE

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an elections body that has put together a revised version with dozens of new seats and that will change the political make-up in this country,â&#x20AC;? he said. Despite an exciting day on Parliament Hill, Poilievre said he was humbled to take on his new role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I come from an average Canadian neighbourhood, a middle class community, son of two teachers,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just exciting that anyone who works hard and believes in a cause can have the opportunity to contribute.â&#x20AC;? The MP for the south end of Ottawa, who has served the Nepean-Carleton riding for nine years, also said his constituents wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be forgotten. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I intend to continue to be a very strong presence in the community,â&#x20AC;? Poilievre said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be door knocking a lot this summer and attending a lot of events.â&#x20AC;?

Cal

News - Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre will tackle some of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most controversial topics now that Prime Minister Stephen Harper has named him Minister of State for Democratic Reform. Poilievre was one of eight new faces to join Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cabinet on Monday, July 15 in the biggest cabinet shakeup since the Conservatives took power in 2006. As part of his new portfolio, Poilievre, 34, will pick up where Edmonton MP Tim Uppal left off on Senate reform and improvements to the Elections Canada Act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not necessarily in that order,â&#x20AC;? Poilievre said Monday, although he allowed that Senate reform is large on the minds of Canadians in the wake of the Senate expense scandal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Senate is a very high profile subject these days. We are committed to reforming it, to make it elected with limited terms. And if that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen we want it to be abolished.â&#x20AC;? Poilievre said the Conservative government has been working towards Senate reform since it was first elected seven years ago, although no legislation has passed the House of Commons to that effect, even though the government has held a majority of seats in the House of Commons since the 2011 elecetion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nature of the Senate is in part a question for the Constitution and even a majority government canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t amend the Constitution by itself,â&#x20AC;? Poilievre said. The government has asked the Supreme Court to clarify exactly what powers the government has to reform the Senate; answers which Poilievre expects to receive by the end of 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the Supreme Court reference will be a seminal event in the revolution of the Senate. It will inform Parliament about what is possible.â&#x20AC;? The most recent Senate reform leg-

islation introduced in 2011 called for elected senators and limited nine-year terms. Poilievre said Harper has tried to get around the Constitutionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senator appointment conventions by honouring election results if a province holds Senate elections in conjunction with provincial or municipal votes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far only one province has taken us up on that offer, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alberta,â&#x20AC;? he said. Poilievre was hesitant to expand on Elections Canada reforms since no legislation has been brought forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re listening to Canadians to see how best we can protect our electoral system,â&#x20AC;? he said. Poilievre will oversee planned boundary changes for ridings across the country, which will include a new riding in southwest Ottawa to account for rising populations in Barrhaven and Kanata.
