News – Manotick’s promise to remember will be set further into stone this fall thanks to a $10,000 grant from the city of Ottawa. The money was approved before the city’s agriculture and rural affairs committee met on Thursday, Sept. 5, as part of the city’s rural communitybuilding grant program. The Manotick Village and Community Association had asked for $15,000 to expand the red interlocking brick around the cenotaph in Dickinson Square, but due to budget constraints – the program has only $80,000 to give away for the year – the association was approved for $10,000. “Which is fine,” said Ted Ross, an MCVA board member who has been working with the Manotick legion to restore the cenotaph. “We’re happy that they were able to grant that much. The grant will be used to extend the apron of the cenotaph over on the left hand side over toward Bridge Street.” Ross said that extension northward is necessary because a number of cadets, honour guard members and other Remembrance Day participants have a hard time standing for hours on the area’s uneven and slightly sloped grass during the annual November ceremony. He hopes the project can be completed before this year’s Remembrance Day service using the same red brick currently surrounding the cenotaph and planned for the sidewalk now under construction. With the grant money in hand, Ross said he wants to make it go as far as possible. He said he hopes the contractors already working on Dickinson can give the volun-

teer group a good deal, since the equipment is already on the ground. “We’re hoping to get it done before November and as cheap as we can so we can have a railing slightly behind it if we can,” he added. REMEMBRANCE PARK

The cenotaph extension is part of a larger multi-year plan to design and build a permanent Remembrance Park in the green space along Dickinson between Bridge Street and Clapp Lane. Preliminary plans for the park include a sidewalk connecting Bridge to the cenotaph (currently underway), seating areas, heritage gardens and a children’s thank-you monument. The abutment on which the cenotaph sits also needs major repairs. As the foot of the original Bridge Street, the city-owned infrastructure has already been assessed by a consultant hired by the city, and a status update has been handed in, Ross said. City staff said they have received the report and are reviewing its findings. Once staff have assessed its contents, further information will be made available, a spokesperson said. The park committee also wants to improve the cenotaph’s accessibility, add benches and improve lighting. To do this, Ross hopes to get support from Veterans Affairs Canada, which runs a cenotaph restoration grant program that funds up to 50 per cent of a project’s costs. The committee hopes to have the park ready for 2017, which coincides with Canada’s 150th anniversary as well as the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge.

Watson rejects war of words Melnyk blames mayor for casino frustrations Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Mayor Jim Watson refused to escalate a heated exchange of words with Eugene Melnyk after the Senators owner vented his casino frustrations on a Toronto radio show last week. Melnyk took to the airwaves on FAN 580 to complain about city council’s decision to take his site at the

Canadian Tire Centre out of the running for a new casino in Ottawa. He blamed Watson for ensuring the Rideau Carleton Raceway was the only option for more gambling in Ottawa and said the mayor acts like he’s from another planet. Watson brushed off the comments, repeating that the casino issue is not his priority and he expects the city will continue to have a working relationship with the NHL team. “Mr. Melnyk is entitled to his opinion. I don’t happen to share his point of view on what he talked about,” Watson said. “His priority is a casino and my priority is not a ca-

sino.” Watson pointed out a bus off-ramp to the Canadian Tire Centre that the city and province put $750,000 towards will open later this year to make it easier for people to take transit to the arena. “I continue to remain very optimistic that we have a good working relationship and the proof’s in the pudding,” Watson said. The radio interview followed the resignation of Senators president Cyril Leeder from the boards of four local groups, including the committee to plan Canada’s 150th birthday bash in Ottawa in 2017.

Greely community welcomes new residents Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – Greely residents showed a bit of neighbourly love last week when the community association hosted a meet and greet on Sept. 11. About 15 people – some familiar, others new – gathered at the community centre for a casual discussion about how they want to improve their village. One young couple came looking for a recreational complex in the area; others wanted information on the many residential and commercial developments currently on the books.

Association board member Pam Dans said people with good ideas must be willing to put the time behind them to make them happen. “We get very enthusiastic and excited, but then we only have six or seven people and everyone’s plate is full,� she told the crowd. Besides, getting involved is the best way to get to know your neighbours, she added. “If you’re feeling isolated here it’s really up to you to join something and we can work together to make it feel like a community.� President Bruce Brayman gave the group a run-down of the association’s accomplish-

Metcalfe grannies help turn the tide in Africa News – Kanata’s Grassroot Grannies were treated to an evening of relaxation, celebration and education on Sept. 5 as they arrived in Metcalfe after the second day of their Ride to Turn the Tide. The fourth annual cycling event included 22 riders and four support crew, who cycled 270 kilometres over three days in support of grandmothers raising children orphaned by HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Edwards United Church choir offered a musical interlude, and sparklers helped end the festivities on a bright note.

Lounge gets new life at Osgoode care centre Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – Nothing gives an old room new life like a new set of furniture. And for the residents at the Township of Osgoode Care Centre, that’s exactly what they’ve got thanks to Raymond’s gas station and convenience store in Osgoode. The long-time family business donated about $6,000 to the care centre as part of the facility’s ongoing fundraising campaign to update everything

from its dining room chairs to the roof over residents’ heads. Al Raymond said supporting community initiatives is something his business has always done, but this felt especially relevant. “It fills a need in the community, and it’s an ongoing need,� he said. “I can’t see that dissipating any time soon.� The Raymonds don’t currently have a family connection to the centre, but extended family members have stayed there in the past, including Al’s wife’s

grandfather, who celebrated his 100th birthday there. Originally the Raymonds had applied to update a single residents’ room, which costs about $6,000, but with permission the care centre used the money to redo the lounge instead. It used to be filled with mismatched donated tables and chairs, executive director Lori Dudley said. Now the room features three large, blue armchairs, a small dining room table with four chairs and a new side table. The small, sunny room looks out

over the lawns, and includes a shuffle board and a small organ. The centre’s fundraising campaign has so far raised about $170,000 out of the required $500,000, which Dudley has been spending on projects as the money comes in. So far, much of the centre’s furniture has been updated, flooring in the old wing has been replaced, new dishes have arrived in the kitchen and a muchneeded lift has been ordered. Community outreach director Wendy Hill said interested

Correction A story about the renaming of Osgoode roads incorrectly stated that friends and family of the late Andrew “Diesel� Winnicki were pushing to name 6th Line Road after the late Andrew Winnicki. The campaign was actually to rename 2nd Line Road. We regret the error.

       

EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Mike and Al Raymond try out the new armchairs paid for by their $6,000 donation to the Osgoode Care Centre. people can see the upgrades on Nov. 26 when the centre hosts an open house. Fireman calendars will be available as of Oct. 1, and a

trivia night is planned in Russell in November to continue the fundraising. The second annual Busting out the Brews is already booked for Feb. 7, 2014.

In response to the city’s decision, Diesel Road supporter Emily Kelly sent the following message: “At this point I think it’s quite obvious that family and friends of Andrew would have loved the name “Diesel’s Road� be added to list for potential names for 2nd Line Road in Osgoode,� Emily Kelly wrote in a Facebook message. “Sadly, the city in-

formed us that the name was too similar to another road in the city therefore could not be considered for the list.� Instead, the group will pursue naming a hockey dressing room in the Stewart Holmes Arena “Diesel’s Dressing Room.� Kelly said the city has offered an hour of ice time annually for friends and family to play the sport Winnicki loved – hockey.

ating. It’s unlikely the site could be returned to agricultural land due to the cost of tearing down buildings and ripping up asphalt, Blais said. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry spoke passionately against the decision the committee made. He wanted to delay the decision with the hope of finding more archives or information that would enable city council to convey that desired nonconforming use status onto the property. After a year of negotiations and discussions with city staff, Blais deemed that prospect unlikely. Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri joined El-Chantiry in rejecting the move to include the business’s use in the zoning, in contravention of municipal and provincial law. City council will have the final say on the matter on Sept. 25. After that, there would ne a 20-day appeal period, but Lapointe’s lawyer, Martin StOnge, did not expect anyone to file an appeal.

News - The answer to why an illegal landscaping and snow removal business has been allowed to operate on Frank Kenney Road for several decades is trapped in moldy Cumberland township records. Councillors who sit on the agriculture and rural affairs committee were put in a pickle on Sept. 5 when faced with the prospect of effectively shutting down Prebbel Enterprises and putting its 20 or so employees out of work, or putting themselves in a legally unenforceable situation of allowing the business to continue in violation of several city and provincial policies and laws. They chose the latter. Matt Lapointe, owner of Prebbel, insists he understood the existing business he bought in 2002 was “legally non-con-

forming,” a right city council can give to a property owner if the land’s use was allowed under an older law that the city subsequently decides to change. But in this case, the city has no way of confirming the business was ever allowed to set up on the site. Any records that could reveal the answer are likely in a moldy pile of documents – archives from the former township that will take the city’s archivist 10 to 15 years to clean up and make readable, Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais said. Manager of rural planning review Derek Moodie said the research his department was able to do indicates the zoning on the site would never have allowed the building, but what’s not known is why the former township issued building permits for large commercial garages and buildings on the site. “This is a weird one – flat

out,” said Daniel Paquette, a planning consultant Lapointe hired when he realized there was some discrepancies in the documentation of what was allowed on his land. Neighbours don’t object to the business operating at that location, and none of the five councillors who sit on the committee relished the idea of confirming that only agricultural uses can be allowed on the land, as required by three major laws: the city’s zoning, it’s Official Plan and the Provincial Policy Statement that outlines the parameters for laws the city is allowed to make. “If we accept the staff recommendation, this gentleman is out of business. I think that’s pretty clear,” said Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson, who chairs the committee. He noted that staff don’t want to shut Lapointe down, but they are bound to follow planning laws. Instead of following the letter of the law, the committee decided to allow an exception for the type of business use Prebbel needs in order to continue oper-

Midday fire guts historic Stittsville building

JOHN BRUMMEL/METROLAND

A fire destroyed much of this Stittsville building.

News - One of Stittsville’s most historic buildings has been gutted by a midday fire. Fire ravaged the building on Monday, Sept. 9. Built around 1875, the two storey brick building on the west side of Stittsville Main Street beside the Trans Canada Trail has, over the years, housed a hotel, tinsmith’s shop, general store, tea room and restaurant. At the time of the fire, the

main floor was under renovation for re-opening as a pub/ restaurant after a previous restaurant had closed down earlier this year. Ottawa Fire Services firefighters rushed to the Stittsville Main Street site about noon, with smoke coming from the building’s rear brick two-storey extension. By 12:25 p.m., smoke and flames were pouring from the building, with the smoke being carried out across Stitts-

ville Main Street by the brisk breeze coming from the west. Firefighters applied water through windows and openings as one and eventually two ladder trucks were deployed to pour water down on the building from above. By 1:10 p.m., water was pouring out the front and back doors with the roofs of both the back extension and the main building having collapsed earlier.

Harder seeks national library group presidency position Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder wants to be the national voice for public libraries. The chairwoman of the city’s library board has thrown her hat into the ring as one of three candidates vying for the role of president of the Canadian Library Association. After being head-hunted and asked to pursue the role, Harder agreed. “I’m here in the nation’s capital. It’s a critical time for understanding the library of the future,” she said. “Getting the federal ear on these issues will be important.” In her candidate statement, Harder wrote that the association must have a louder voice at decision-making tables. Lobbying for federal infrastructure funding for libraries, increasing services for First Nations communities and fighting to keep community library-based services for newcomers are priorities,

Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder she wrote. The association also needs to take a leadership role in working with the publishing industry to lift restrictions on access to e-books – something Ottawa’s public library is undertaking on its own. “Libraries must continue to change by evolving to stay relevant for their customers,”

Harder wrote. “And we need to be better at communicating the value of libraries to stakeholders and decision-makers.” Harder already serves as the president of the Canadian Library Trustee Association. She has sat on Ottawa’s library board since 2004 and served as chairwoman since 2006.

HELP BUILD L WA A LIVEABLE OTTAWA

In addition to her executivecouncil membership with the Canadian Library Association, Harder also belongs to the Federation of Ontario Public Libraries and the Urban Libraries Council. Harder already has a busy schedule. She heads up the library board and built-heritage subcommittee, the Ottawa Community Lands Development Corporation and the court of revision at city hall while also sitting on the planning committee as vice-chairwoman and on the Ottawa Police Services board as a member. She is the chairwoman of Energy Ottawa and a director for Hydro Ottawa and the Bruyere Continuing Care board. Voting for the Canadian Library Association executive begins Sept. 12 and will continue for about a month, Harder said. She is up against Kathleen De Long of the University of Alberta libraries and Sandra Singh, the chief librarian of the Vancouver Public Library.

It’s time for a dyslexia strategy

A

s our three-part series about dyslexia has illustrated, the learning disability is not well understood and support is lacking. For every child in the school system who shows signs of dyslexia, there should be someone looking out for them. We need better diagnosis, better support and more people involved in making sure we don’t leave kids behind because of their condition. A learning disability doesn’t mean a child can’t learn, it means the education system must find a better way to reach them. We all lose when a child can’t reach their potential. Dyslexia is a proven medical condition that’s detectable by a neurological scan yet there is no term in the diagnostic manual used by psychologists to clearly establish what help is needed. The education system is failing these students because there is next to no training on identification of dyslexia in Ontario teachers colleges. Even if your child has no learning disability, it’s in every child’s best interests to have resources provided – time and people and teaching methods – to address the needs of kids with dyslexia. A

teacher who has no training or extra time available must reduce time spent with all students if they are to help a child with a learning disability keep pace with his or her classmates. The statistics surrounding dyslexia are ominous. According to the International Dyslexia Association, 15 to 20 per cent of people in Ontario have some form of dyslexia, and 80 to 90 per cent of all learning disabilities can be attributed to the condition. Dyslexia is the only learning disability where you have to prove a child has it in order to get any support. The two largest school boards in Ottawa – both public and Catholic – will carry out a maximum of five assessments per school annually, far below the number of kids affected if the statistics are accurate. That leaves parents to pay for testing, and if they can’t afford it, a child goes untested and unhelped. That’s unCanadian. One expert quoted in our series suggests every child could learn to read using a phonetics-based teaching method that’s not available in the schools, further proof that it’s not our kids who are failing, but the entire education system.

Hope springs eternal as autumn blows into town

P

eople are starting to look for the leaves to turn, but in fact this is Canadian spring. Scoff, if you want, but then think about it. Spring, as we all know, is the time when the trees are sprouting, the flowers are budding, hope springs eternal and everything is new. It traditionally occurs in March or April, depending upon how far south you are, and the sporting metaphor is spring training. When spring training begins, every baseball team has a chance to win, theoretically. The shortcomings of the fall are ancient history and now all the people who were injured last season are all better now. Plus, there is a group of new players, each one better than the one before, each primed to crack the starting lineup. Spring is so wonderful. In our country, the spring phenomenon happens in the early fall. It happens right now. You can tell by reading the sports pages as they chronicle the preseason training camps of local hockey teams across the country. Hope springs eternal and everything is new. In Ottawa, every Senator who was hurt last year is in the best shape ever. The players who have arrived by trade are better than the ones who were traded. Some are even better

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town than Daniel Alfredsson. The players who didn’t get too much action last year are ready for lots of action this year. The players who spent most of their time in Binghamton are ready to spend all of their time with the big club. The flowers are budding, the leaves are sprouting. Never mind that soon they will fall off. Never mind, because we’re not done yet with being offered words of hope in the newspapers and on the radio. Don’t forget the numerous enthusiastic descriptions of the rookies, the players who were just drafted, who haven’t played a shift in the NHL, but look like they might be ready, even now. Under normal circumstances they’d be spending some time in the minor leagues

and be brought along slowly, but their talent is just so exceptional, not to mention their maturity, that they could well make the leap to the NHL. In Canadian spring, the general manager has a tough job deciding among all those deserving players, each one of them worthy of significant ice time in the big leagues. But it’s a problem he’s just glad to have. The team is healthier and deeper, and just in case it temporarily stops being healthy and deep, well, there are all those capable youngsters just waiting for their chance. The fans read all this stuff and hope comes to them. Just in time, too, because the baseball season hasn’t turned out exactly as they had anticipated. They want to believe: the ability to believe is what makes you a fan, rather than a critic or a professor or a political operative. There is so little to believe in unconditionally in these difficult and complicated times. Politics is tainted. Education is unfathomable. Even religion is less perfect than you would like it to be. But the home team: there’s something you can have faith in, no matter what. There is a certain innocence in being a fan. You put away your skepticism, saving it for your

place of work. You don’t analyze, you don’t hesitate. You believe and you read the sports pages and listen to the sports talk radio. Hockey spring is in the air and you have a spring in your step. There are cynics out there, of course, who might think they’ve read it all before -- read it, in fact, just prior to seasons that turned out to be an absolute disaster. But most fans are not cynical, at least not this early. Maybe later in the season the cynicism will creep in, when somehow the promise of the preseason doesn’t pan out. But not just now. It’s spring.

Support services fill in gaps for dyslexic students Pitman said if she had been identified earlier, she would have felt more at home in the classroom. “There were a lot of years where I felt I wasn’t as smart as everyone else,” she said. “It took me a while to learn that all I needed was a level playing field.” But for some, private school isn’t an option. Annual tuition at Heritage – which includes the SMT program – is $15,000. Mindware charges $14,250. Pitman and her sister were raised by a single father. Annual tuition would have likely been out of reach. Her father’s sports treatment for ADD helped to reduce and focus her energy, but Pitman said it wasn’t until her second year of university that she even considered medication. Even now when she’s at work, Pitman said she has to remind herself it’s OK to ask for the accommodations she needs. “I just tested for a promotion and I had to ask to do the testing alone,” she said. “And if I have a new boss I am always wondering when I should tell them.” Cheryl Ward, who started running Heritage Academy after her mother retired in 2006, said the school system can wear down a child’s confidence and parental resolve.

In the third of a three-part series about dyslexia, we examine remedial services offered by private schools and unavailable in the public system Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Ricki-Lee Pitman never liked school. It was always a struggle and while she never failed, she was never at the top of her class. “I would always get comments about my organization,” she said. “And the syntax I used in my writing.” Early on in her elementary school career, Pitman’s family figured out that she had attention deficit disorder. “My dad put me in sports to help me be the best I could be,” she said. “Using up all the extra energy help with my emotional state, my grades and my relationships.” But there was still an underlying problem. Pitman graduated from Brookfield High School. But before she headed to Carleton University to start her degree in psychology a family member advised she be tested for dyslexia. “I knew I had ADD (attention deficit disorder), so I thought I would go to the Paul Menton Centre,” she said. The centre is designed to help diagnose and accommodate potential barriers to learning. A few simple surveys with a learning co-ordinator highlighted some of Pitman’s problem areas. Pitman said without it, she might not have graduated. “She told me it was likely that I had dyslexia,” Pitman said. The University of Ottawa has a centre for students with disabilities, as does Algonquin College. Both centres aim to offer learning support for students with both learning and physical disabilities. Pitman said her initial diagnosis was a relief, but at the same time she was on unfamiliar ground. “It was the first time I considered not everyone thinks this way,” she said. Before she could get supports for class though, Pitman needed a psychological assessment that would show her strengths and weaknesses in learning. Many parents, frustrated with a lack of support in the public school system have turned to private schools that specialize in helping those students who are being left behind. SEEKING HELP PRIVATELY

Over the last couple of decades, private psychologists have begun to offer assessments and other services to take up the slack from an overloaded and underfunded public school system. But doing the testing privately can be expensive. “Thankfully the learning co-ordi-

nator from the Paul Menton Centre was able to help me get a grant so I wasn’t faced with a huge expense.” Derek Rhodenizer, vice-principal at Heritage Academy of Learning Excellence in Ottawa, said Pitman’s story isn’t unheard of. Heritage is a private school aimed at helping students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. “A psycho-educational assessment, even if a student is able to receive one in the public system won’t recognize dyslexia,” he said, adding the waits for testing are long. In Ontario, the Niagara Catholic School Board is one of only a handful that recognizes the term. “There are lots of strains of dyslexia, it can be found in neurological brain scans,” he said, adding the scientific proof should afford the condition its own diagnosis. Dr. Tim Hogan, head psychologist at the Ottawa-Carleton District School said the term isn’t used because it isn’t recognized in the diagnostic manual available to psychologists. “We use a more broad-based term like language-learning disabilities,” he said. According to the Canadian Dyslexia Association, it’s a condition that relies more heavily on the right brain, preventing the person from learning to read in the conventional way, for example, using word memory. Rhodenizer said because the schools don’t recognize the condition, kids get streamed into special education classes that don’t help them learn to read. He said only specific methods – provided by Heritage and another private school called the Mindware Academy – are useful in teaching dyslexics to learn to read. An American study by the National Institute for Mental Health discovered that 80 to 90 per cent of all learning disabilities are forms of dyslexia. It also found that 95 per cent of those cases can be fixed if intervention happens at kindergarten. “We use a mix of teaching methods and assistive technology here at Heritage,” Rhodenizer said. In Pitman’s case, she found having a laptop and a note taker in her classes helped her get through university. “It leveled the playing field,” she said. Although after her first 100-question test on a Scantron sheet in her first-year psychology class, she decided to switch majors. “I found those tests really hard,” she said, describing Scantron as a nightmare. “So I switched to Sociology with a minor in philosophy.” Having a laptop meant that she didn’t have to worry about her writing ability when essay answers were recorded.

Ricki-Lee Pitman, pictured at home on her computer, now works for the federal government as an event planner. She says without the support of the Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities at Carleton University she may never have graduated. “Most dyslexics are very creative,” Rhodenizer said. “With the right tools, they can soar.” Heritage uses the Simultaneous Multisensory Teaching (SMT) method. Mindware Academy uses the Orton-Gillingham method. Both are multi-sensory methods that use kinesthetic and phonics based rules. “The sad thing is, every student could learn to read with the SMT method,” Rhodenizer said. “But dyslexics can’t learn with the method used by the public school system.” Mike Lance, who teaches the SMT method at Heritage, said they use cursive writing instead of block printing. “Larger muscle memory is easier to remember than fine muscle memory,” Lance said. Lance demonstrated the difference between using larger muscles (like the biceps) to learn to write and finer muscles like the fingertips. Lance said he works with each student for 45 minute blocks each day, adding he helps to build back the self esteem often shattered by years of not “getting it” in the public school system. “It’s really great to see their faces when they finally get it,” Lance said. Jenna Rowney, who also teaches at Heritage, said she came to the school

out of teachers college and was sold on experiential learning right away. It’s not uncommon for Rowney to teach her class in the schoolyard on a nice day. When she taught students about eco-zones several used Play-Doh. When kids aren’t in class they can work on their ju-jitsu in the gym. “It’s all about keeping them active so they can focus their energy,” Rhodenizer said. Pitman agrees with the need to move. “I don’t really remember doing homework in school, I just remember sports and my friends,” she said. “In class I kind of went through the motions.” Liette Phillipe said sending her son to Mindware Academy was the best decision she could have made. After the first four years in the public school system he was reading at a Grade 1 level and couldn’t write. Thanks to the specialized teaching methods that help to deal with difference in learning, by the end of Grade 8, he had developed the coping methods he needed to start high school in the public school system. “I’m forever grateful to Mindware Academy - they saved my son,” Phillipe said.

My brother was diagnosed in Grade 3 and they told my mother the best she could hope for was that he would trade baseball cards for a living. CHERYL WARD HERITAGE ACADEMY OF LEARNING EXCELLENCE

“My brother was diagnosed in Grade 3 and they told my mother the best she could hope for was that he would trade baseball cards for a living.” He is now pursuing a doctorate degree at the University of Ottawa. “My mother got frustrated and struck out on her own,” Ward said. “But that took a lot of courage.” Ward was diagnosed in Grade 4. She described the extra work she had to do just to complete the same tasks as her peers. “I had to read everything several times to understand it properly,” she said. In Ottawa, the Learning Disabilities Association of Ottawa-Carleton offers supports for parents of children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. For more information, visit www.ldaottawa.com. There is also the Dyslexia Centre, www.dyslexiacentre.ca, in Aylmer, Que that helps to raise awareness and provide support for testing. But parents have to be prepared to become advocates, Ward said. “One of the biggest lessons is you have to fight for what you want,” Ward said.

News - Several hundred fitness instructors have seen their pay cut by the city. The city is trying to set lower pay levels for instructors who teach classes like yoga and aquafit and for the first time the city also struck a committee to reclassify speciality classes like zumba into regular fitness classes that pay less to teachers, according to a city fitness instructor. “There’s a lot of anger,” said the employee, who asked that her name be withheld in case speaking out affected her employment with the city. “It’s really affecting people’s lives. “A lot of (the instructors) do it as their job, so when they’re taking a pay cut, whether it’s $3 to $5, $6 a class, when you’re teaching 20, 30 or 35 classes a week, at the end of the week,

that’s someone’s hydro bill or someone’s grocery bill,” she said. “For those who are doing it as a living, it is definitely hurting them with their budget.” But the woman, who now spends most of her time working at a private facility, said she understands what the city is doing and is surprised something like this didn’t happen sooner. “For me, the more money the city spends, the more tax dollars are going to go up,” she said. Something had to change eventually, she added, to ensure city recreation programs can be offered sustainably. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, chairman of the city’s community and protective services committee, called the situation “a bit of a (human resources) matter” that affects a “limited number” of city parks and recreation employees – several hundred

out of a department of several thousand. “When we hired individuals, we hired them at the rate that we believed they’re qualified to serve at, while at the same time trying to ensure we’re doing it within the negotiated framework we have with the union,” said Taylor. He said he found out about the issue several weeks ago. A man who used to work in city recreation and asked to remain anonymous said it’s hard for the city to attract quality instructors, especially in the summer, because they can make more money working for the YMCA. Through his spokesman, Ryan Kennery, Mayor Jim Watson declined to comment. Kennery said the matter is a “personnel issue” unrelated to Watson’s promise to freeze recreation fees during his term in office. See WAGE page 13

Wage cuts unusual: expert Continued from page 12

Taylor said the city is working with the affected employees and the union, CUPE Local 503, to “comb it out to everyone’s satisfaction.” The disagreement is between the practice of managers having the flexibility to adjust salaries and the obligations of the collective agreement, Taylor said. “(Managers) do have discretion to start people at a higher rate within the pay bands, but there are limitations to that … that are limited by the contract we have with the union,” Taylor said. Managers definitely have flexibility when it comes to wages they offer, but at question is whether that flexibility constrains them to the range of one “pay band” or if they can jump a new employee to a higher pay level. The female part-time instructor said despite amalgamation, each city facility runs independently and managers make decisions differently, whether it’s hiring at a higher pay rate or paying instructors for a full hour if they teach a 45-minute class. She called it “unsustainable.” “From my perspective it wasn’t very well-thought out,” she said. A request to interview the city’s parks and recreation

manager and the city’s lawyer were denied. Instead, media relations officer Andrea Ruttan sent an email on behalf of city solicitor Rick O’Connor stating “the city does not comment publicly on specific personnel matters or workplace issues.” Representatives from CUPE 503 did not return calls for comment. Union representatives have told fitness instructors not to sign city documents agreeing to the lower pay scale until the issue is resolved, the female instructor said. No taxpayer dollars were wasted, Taylor said. The city knew the salaries and budgeted for them. “We weren’t paying out money we didn’t realize we were paying out and certainly no one has taken any money that they weren’t entitled to,” he said. The parks, recreation and culture department is forecast to have a $1.81-million deficit by the end of the year, $1.7-million of which is due to anticipated sponsorship revenue the city didn’t get. The city budgeted $61.8 million for salaries and benefits for all employees in that department.

Michael Mac Neil, a labour law expert at Carleton University, said clawing back wages is an uncommon move. “If the contract actually stipulated an amount you are going to start working at, then it would be quite unusual I think to unilaterally move it back,” he said. “I suppose it might arise in a situation where someone is claiming they made an error

in their payroll and have been paying someone more than they were entitled to under a contract.” The collective agreement states that if an employee has been hired at a higher hourly rate of pay due to a competitive market or “recruitment issues,” they “shall continue to receive that hourly rate and be entitled to all negotiated percentage increases.” The agreement goes on to say if an employee’s job duties are revised in a way that reclassifies the job downwards,

“the employee(s) (present incumbents only) shall continue to receive the rate of pay of the job or type of job applicable prior to the downward classification.” Taylor couldn’t comment on the details of the collective agreement because he said he’s not a labour relations expert. “Irrespective of what it might say in that chapter and verse, there could very well be something in another part of the contract with which (the city is) taking issue,” Taylor said.

He said he isn’t aware of anyone who quit as a result. “My understanding is all the employees understand fully what’s happening and why.” An email from city media relations attributed to Dan Chenier, the city’s manager of parks, recreation and cultural services, said programs have not been cut as a result. “Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services will be offering the same variety, numbers and volume of programs and activities this fall as last year,” the email reads.

Museum night party starts up again Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Exploring nature at a downtown museum is back on the Friday night calendar this fall. Nature Nocturne is a series of social events held at the Canadian Museum of Nature that offers adult patrons the opportunity to spend an evening out with music, drinks and food. The museum is set to launch its second season of the evening affair, continuing with plans to offer different themes, starting on Sept. 20. According to Cynthia Iburg,

the adult programmer at the museum, the evenings have been very popular, with more than 7,500 people attending the parties last season. Iburg credits the popularity to the different themes. “Themes have ranged from the Arctic to Star Wars, with a huge, positive response from the Ottawa community,” Iburg said. The evening programming combines mixing, mingling and gallery visits. New exhibitions, dancing, music, food and drinks and the occasional craft or art expressionist workshop took place last winter, targeted at adults aged 35 years old and

under. “Our 35-and-under target audience has really embraced the concept of socializing, dancing and museum discovery all in one place,” Iburg added. “Where else in Ottawa can you party with a dinosaur or a blue whale?” Live bands are planned for this season and returning entertainer DJ TDot will be on hand for a few of the evenings to keep the beats going. Visitors who attend are welcome to wander through the galleries until midnight. Iburg said aside from the many party-goers taking the

opportunity to have their photo taken next to a dinosaur or big mammals, the craft sessions have proven to be crowd pleasers.

Sept. 20. The other evenings are Oct. 25, Nov. 22, Jan. 24, Feb. 28, March 28, April 25 and May 23. The party starts at 8 p.m. and runs until midnight. Tickets are $20 each and the museum recommends that people purchase tickets in advance at nature.ca/ nocturne.

“Adults like the opportunity to play,” she said. “We’ve set up craft areas where, depending upon the theme of the night, you could make a colourful bug, inuksuk, or a Star Wars foam figure. We’ll be continuing the hands-on activities in this upcoming series.” The 2013-14 series begins on

News - The Ottawa Humane Society’s 25th annual IAMS Wiggle Waggle Walkathon and first-ever Run for the Animals

took place at Queen Juliana Park on Sept. 8 under brilliant sunny skies. The event raised $220,000 for the animals. Funds raised will be used to save animal lives in the com-

munity, and perform live-saving surgeries in their clinic. The proceeds from the event will help fund their rescue and investigations into animal cruelty and neglect, as well as fund their adoption program.

THE R

My sister Shannon suffered from a congenital heart disease, a condition that made it difficult for her to eat, breathe or move. She was so fragile that she spent the entire first year of her life at CHEO, so I ended up spending my days at the hospital with my parents and my sister. CHEO became my second home: it was where my family and I spent most of our time, where my sister went to preschool and where I made friends.

B M E V O N , Y A D FRI

I remember that the staff at CHEO always made time for me whether it was by saying hello, giving me a hug or taking me to the playroom, while my sister underwent various procedures. The nurses, especially, were my heroes; it was their caring words and gentle touch that carried my family through some very difficult days.

WITH SO MANY GREAT PRIZES IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THERE’S MORE!

Unfortunately, two weeks before her fourth birthday, Shannon passed away. Her strength and resilience throughout her illness were exceptional and she always had a smile for me.

But, lottery organizers are excited to introduce an incredible addition to the lottery

At three months of age, Ava was admitted to CHEO where she was diagnosed with failure to thrive, severe acid reflux and several food allergies. Failure to thrive is a condition that can have serious repercussions on a child’s stature, emotional and behavioral development. Ava required a hypoallergenic formula via continuous nasogastric feeds (a feeding tube placed in the nose) and a few medications to help settle her stomach. After a five week stay at CHEO, she was transitioned to thickened bottles and we were finally able to bring her home. Following her discharge, Ava continued to thrive with outpatient support from CHEO, and although she was smaller than most kids her age, she seemed to be on the upswing.

But one morning I found Ava sweating, trembling and difficult to arouse. That day Ava had the first of a few ambulance rides back to CHEO where she was recently diagnosed with ketotic hypoglycemia, a rare but serious form of Little did I know then that my husband and I would return to CHEO once we became parents. low blood sugar. Our daughter Ava was born prematurely and Despite all of these challenges, and with jaundiced, but looked like a happy, healthy baby. continued support from CHEO, Ava has grown into the sweet, smart and high-spirited threeyear-old girl she is now.

The nurses, especially, were my heroes; it was their caring words and gentle touch that carried my family through some very difficult days.

In order for CHEO to thrive and grow with us, they need financial support from our community. Please help support CHEO so that they can continue to change lives… as they did mine. Sincerely, Trina Ryan RN, BScN, DSW, MOM

Several years later, inspired by the amazing nursing staff at CHEO, I became a nurse—and funnily, as part of my training in the Bachelor of Nursing, I worked on the same unit where my sister had been treated.

Unfortunately, once at home we noticed that something was wrong. Ava would have projectile vomiting after every single feed. No experience or education could have prepared us for the stress associated with having a sick child.

(NC)—No matter whether you’re dating now, or have been happily married for years, here are five simple ways to make that relationship even better, no matter where you are in your romantic journey: Recognize what’s important to your partner. Taking time to do this can go a long way towards building goodwill and an atmosphere of compromise. On the flip side, it’s also important for your partner to recognize your wants and for you to state them clearly. Con-

stantly giving to others at the expense of your own needs builds resentment and anger. Keep outside relationships and interests alive. No one person can meet all of our needs, and expecting too much from someone can put a lot of unhealthy pressure on a relationship. Having friends and outside interests not only strengthens your social network, but brings new insights and stimulation to the relationship too. Change it up. Act out of character — you can easily get

into ruts. If you find that you are repeating patterns, step back and break it up. Be somewhat unknown to each other. We are hardwired as humans to like mystery and be intrigued by it. There is an excitement that comes from anticipating and not knowing. Find something you enjoy doing together. It can be a shared hobby, a dance class, a daily walk or volunteering. Doing service moves you out of yourself and your own problems and supports a broader, more spiritual view of life.

African pork and peanut stew a flavourful dish Lifestyle - Homegrown peanuts add local flavour to an interesting African stew, which is delicious served with sweet potato purée. Preparation time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 1 hour, 45 minutes. Serves four to six.

•2 tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped •15 ml (1 tbsp) fresh lemon juice •125 ml (1/2 cup) each chopped fresh coriander and shelled peanuts

INGREDIENTS

Trim any fat from the pork and cut it into four-centimetre (1 1/2-inch) cubes. In a large heavy saucepan, heat 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the oil over medium-high heat and brown the pork in batches, adding more oil as necessary. Season the pork with salt and pepper to taste and transfer to a plate. Add more oil to pan if necessary and cook the onions over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for five minutes. Stir in the garlic, ginger, curry powder, cumin, ground coriander and hot pepper flakes and cook, stirring, for one minute. Stir in the cinnamon, broth and tomato paste then bring to

Stir in the peanut butter until blended. Cook uncovered for five minutes. Stir in sweet peppers and cook for five minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and simmer just until tomatoes soften but retain their shape -about two to three minutes. Stir in the lemon juice then transfer to a shallow bowl.

Luncheon opens mental health conversation Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The Royal Mental Health Centre is hosting a conversation about mental health with local parents. For the second year in a row, health care professionals are meeting with the public at the Centurion Conference Centre in Nepean to take about adolescent depression – both the causes and the treatments. The event is being hosted in partnership with Do it For Daron and will take

place on Sept. 26. Organizer and vicepresident at the Royal Nicole Loreto said they expect about 500 attendees. This year the conversation will be about resilience. Entitled Resilient and Ready, the workshop aims to talk to parents about instilling coping skills in their children. Dr. Raj Bhatla, the psychiatrist-inchief at the Royal, will be on hand to talk about the myths related to suicide and what he sees in the emergency room. Loreto, a social worker, will talk

about how best to teach resiliency and related skills. Dr. Mario Capelli, CHEO’s director of mental health research, will address the role the media and parents can play in relation to the coverage of suicide and the implications it has on emergency care and services. Mary Lou McFarlane, a nurse and mental health counsellor will talk about building up the strengths of our children. “Mary Lou runs a therapeutic farm,” Loreto said. “She works with kids from

sues surrounding teen depression and suicide, but more funding is needed. “We are doing really well at diagnosis and assessment but the wait lists to get help are too long,” Loreto said. While extra funding would help with wait times, Loreto said prevention may be the key. The luncheon will answer questions parents have and point them to community resources. There will be an hour’s worth of talking and 45 minutes available for questions, Loreto said, adding the audience is expected to range from parents of toddlers, parents of teens and teachers to other healthcare professionals. For more information email DFID@ theroyal.ca.

We need to do better.” Loreto said because of the publicity surrounding the suicide deaths of Jamie Hubley and Daron Richardson, there is a lot more awareness of the is-

Ottawa Public Library to block child pornography Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - For the first time, the Ottawa Public Library has taken steps to filter its Internet connection to prevent child pornography from being viewed or downloaded. The Ottawa Public Library already filters content viewed by children by using their li-

brary cards to block sexual, hateful, violent or gamblingrelated content, said Jennifer Stirling, the library’s manager of technology and innovation. Now, the library is in the process of acquiring software that will prevent child pornography from being viewed on any library computer throughout the city. The filter will extend to the

library’s Wi-Fi network so the illegal material can’t be viewed on people’s laptops or other devices. The library has been working with the police this year to conduct safety audits and train staff to ensure incidents in the library branches are properly reported. The addition of a child-porn filter is a direct result of that work, said library

board chairwoman Coun. Jan Harder. The filter will only prevent the viewing of illegal child pornography – not legal porn. “We’re focused on preventing illegal activity in the library,” Stirling said. While some patrons might hope the library blocks all pornographic material from being viewed, restricting access to legal content is not part of the library’s mandate, she said. The issue is complicated because everyone’s definition of inappropriate material is different, Harder said. Some people could consider images of breastfeeding to be inappropriate or pornographic, she said. “We can’t control everything that’s going on everywhere, but we can do our best to mitigate criminal activity,”

she said. The Internet filter doesn’t tackle other illegal activity on the library’s computers, like “treason,” Harder said. The software, which Stirling wouldn’t name because the contract hasn’t been signed, has the capacity to track and log users’ Internet use, but the Ottawa Public Library won’t be doing that because it would violate the library board’s public-access policies. The library assists in all police investigations when the proper warrants are provided, Stirling said. That’s the only time users’ Internet activity on the library network would be disclosed. “We’re not planning at this time to log activity,” she said. Doing so would go against “library nirvana,” Harder said. She emphasized the track-

ing capabilities would only be used in cases of criminal activity, and even then the police must “jump through hoops” to get it. “It’s a subject that’s very touchy in libraries,” she said. “In the library world, privacy is like a sacred cow.” The filter will be used at one undetermined branch as a pilot project starting at the end of September. After the library board receives an update on the initiative in November, Stirling said the hope is to have the filter in use at all library branches in Ottawa before the end of the year. The software is cloudbased so instead of a one-time purchasing fee, the city will pay around $33,000 U.S. a year for access to the filter. The money will come from the library’s existing budget, Stirling said.

News - The energy in the room was like Christmas morning, as children milled about getting their photos snapped and measurements taken on Sept. 8 at the Museum of Science and Technology. The lucky kids were chosen to go to Disney World with the Dreams Take Flight program, an organization run by Air Canada employees that takes children on the day trip of a lifetime. The children, nominated by teachers, doctors, social workers or support organizations for a variety of reasons, will board an early morning plane on Sept. 24 and head to the happiest place on Earth: Disney World. Dreams Take Flight operates in eight Canadian cities, and has run in Ottawa since 1995. The Air Canada flight crew are all volunteers, and the day-long flight makes a trip that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be possible for most of the children. While some of the children had clearly been thinking about the trip for some time, the Sept. 8 orientation event was extra special for two siblings. Their father had recently passed away and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why they were heading to the museum. When they went into the presentation, it was quite the surprise to find out they would be leaving in two weeks for Disney World. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives them an opportunity to have one magical day just for themselves,â&#x20AC;? said volunteer Kelly Goulet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have the memories (after) for the hard days.â&#x20AC;? Some of the children have illness-

es, or have spent their life growing up with a sibling with a serious illness in and out of the hospital. Other children have grown up in foster homes, or without the financial means for this type of trip to be possible. They arrive at the airport extremely early in the morning, and get to spend the day at Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Fla.. A budget is allocated for food for everyone, with a bit set aside for each child to purchase a souvenir to bring home. The tired children will land back in Ottawa late in the evening before heading home with a backpack of goodies and donated items. Twelve-year-old Taequan Moise, from Metcalfe, said he thinks the day will be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;10 out of 10â&#x20AC;?. Brennan Gore-Miron, from Westboro, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big fan of water, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excited to go on the Splash Mountain ride with his groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer. And while Hunter Larocque, 8, from Overbrook, has never been on a rollercoaster before, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most looking forward to. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also looking forward to meeting his favourite Disney character â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mickey Mouse. The children are put into different groups to travel around the park for the day with volunteers. For many, Sept. 24 will be the first time leaving the country or boarding an airplane. But there will be one same first for all the children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of the requirements to be chosen is that kids can never have been to Disney World before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our job is to give them magical memories,â&#x20AC;? Goulet said.

Twenty-acre field held many precious memories

I

t was always called the Twenty-Acre Field. Yet Father said it was far more than 20

acres. He said if you counted the bush at the north end, you could add another couple acres to it, but we always called it the twenty-acre field. It separated our farm from our neighbours, the Thoms. Although they were no relation, we always called them Uncle Alec and Aunt Bertha. Children back in those days never called an adult by their first name, so the parents of our best friends in Northcote were always called Aunt and Uncle. The 20 acres was always a hay field. Father said the soil was best for hay and other crops were planted on the fields beyond the West Hill, where there was rich black loam, ideal for wheat, barley and oats. For reasons unknown, all of the farms in that part of Northcote were laid out in long narrow strips, and on our side there were no exceptions. Father always said you could spit across our fields,

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories they were so narrow, but our farm ran from the Northcote Side Road, straight south and across the Bonnechere River. This long, narrow piece of farmland that had seen three generations of Father’s family live and die there. But the Twenty-Acre Field was more than just a field. When the hay had been taken off, you could see the path where dozens of times we had walked, rode horseback or taken the buggy in the summer and the cutter in the winter, over to the Thoms homestead. When the hay had yet to be harvested, we walked close to the fence that was in constant need of repair, but both Uncle Alec and Father could see no reason to fix it. “We don’t need a fence to tell us where our land lies,”

Uncle Alec would say whenever the subject came up to prop up the bent-over posts and maybe replace the wiring. So, most of the time the fence was either lying flat on the ground or so bent over you could step across the wiring without touching a shoe to it. If I was on my way to my friend’s farm, across the Twenty-Acre Field in the summertime, I walked close to the falling fence. I was sure if I walked through the hay I would get lost and never see my mother again, because the crop by mid-summer was far over my head. Being the meek child that I was, when I started out across the Twenty-Acre Field to visit Velma, I would ask Mother to stand by the grape arbour, so that I could turn every 10 feet or so, wave to her, and make

sure if any danger befell me, I could run for home. Only when I went through the gate -- also badly in need of repair and never, ever closed, but always hanging open on one hinge -- and I left the Twenty-Acre Field behind me, only then would I breathe a sigh of relief that I had once again made it safely.

I was sure if I walked through the hay I would get lost and never see my mother again, because the crop by mid-summer was far over my head. Coming home presented a problem though. My little friend Velma knew I was frightened of my own shadow, so she would walk with me halfway through the field and stand there as I ran as fast as my legs could carry me home. As soon as I would reach the grape arbour, I would turn and

wave to Velma and she would return to her own home. I marvelled at how brave was my little friend Velma. In the winter, when the hay had long since been taken off and only stubble remained, I would wait for the snow to come and cover the field with a white blanket. The field looked bigger then I thought. As soon as there was enough snow to make the field passable, Father would take the team of horses, hitch them to the big flat-bottomed sleigh and make many trips back and forth across the field to make a path. It would be as straight as a die, leading from our yard at the side of our house and right over to the opening in the fence where the gate hung by a hinge. My very favourite time for crossing the Twenty-Acre Field was in the dead of winter. When the air was crystal clear and bitterly cold, and the full moon overhead hung like a huge lantern. Going across the field to the Thoms was a special treat at any time, but in the winter,

on a cold night, was my very favourite. It would take about 20 minutes to cross the field, all of us bundled up like mummies on the flat-bottomed sleigh. And from under the blankets covering us, keeping out the cold, the Twenty-Acre Field looked like an immense white bedspread. After a fresh snow, the field sparkled like millions of diamonds and I felt the utmost joy and peace. I thought how blessed we were to own that special tract of land. It was supposed to separate the two farms, but in fact it tied us together. Today, decades later, the Twenty-Acre Field is still there. There still isn’t much of a fence and its ground is rutted from hundreds of sleighs, wagons and horses using it as a way of getting from one farm to another. And through a child’s eyes, so many years ago, the Twenty-Acre Field was a symbol of the times linking neighbours, creating a bond, like a good and warm handshake.

Heel ’n Wheel brings hope to hospital Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – Rainy skies and cool winds couldn’t dampen the spirits of 77 participants who walked and cycled for hours on behalf of the Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Sept. 7. The second annual Heel ‘N Wheel for Local Cancer Care raised more than $68,600 for the hospital’s cancer programs, which participants raised through pledges to walk or ride between 18 and 30 kilometres to the hospital. Routes began in Greely, Osgoode, Russell, Finch and South Mountain. While they all began their journeys far afield, the participants got closer and closer to each other throughout the day until everyone finally came together under one roof at the Winchester Lions’ Hall. That sense of creating unity was a theme throughout the event, according to community engagement manager Christina Enright. She said the event’s top individual fundraiser, Daad Elsaadi from Finch, said it best when she said Canadians know what it means to take care of each other. “Walking that long is hard, but cancer is harder,” Enright added. Since the event opened for regis-

tration earlier this year, participants have taken it on themselves to host fundraising events, create online auctions and personally canvas their neighbours, families and friends for donations. All of the funds raised will support cancer care at the hospital. Enright said one of the best things the hospital foundation did this year was cancel minimum fundraising targets. Three weeks before the event, only 30 participants were registered so the organizers made the decision to cancel the minimums. Within two weeks, their registrations had doubled, she said. “What it taught us is that that model doesn’t work out here. It scares people away,” Enright said. While fundraising minimums have been cancelled permanently for this event, she noted that many of the people who said they couldn’t raise the $500 originally required actually surpassed that target once they signed up. The celebration included awards for top fundraisers, including the Winchester Hospital Heelers who were named top fundraising team after raising $27,000 and Elsaadi who raised more than $3,000. She was the top individual fundraiser for the second year in a row. Edwards resident Brian Cox took a little of the bottom as he had his

Cancer care gets a boost Continued from page 33

“These funds are essential to ensuring that (the hospital) can purchase needed equipment right away, keeping the quality of care given and received at its best,” he said. “You are making a difference with everything you’ve done, so please, give yourselves a pat on the back for your efforts and share with your friends the impact you’re making at your community hospital.”

The celebration included entertainment from Marleen Fawcett and guitarist Robert Dillon, followed by local band Conspiracy. Enright said she hopes to continue the momentum from this year to continue supporting cancer care at the hospital. Enright said she was impressed by the number of hospital employees that took part this year. “Those chemotherapy nurses see first hand the impact of the funding that comes to the

cancer program. So to have them participating was really special to me,” she said. More than 6,000 cancer patient visits took place at the hospital in 2011, including patients having a colonoscopy, using the Ontario Breast Screening Program, or undergoing chemotherapy treatments. In addition, many surgical procedures occur at the hospital including biopsies and cancer surgeries. For more information about the event visit heelnwheel.ca.

Some of the members of the Winchester Hospital Heelers celebrate after being named the highest fundraising team at the Heel ‘N Wheel event on Sept. 7: Cheryl Lynch, Julie Padbury, Judy Simser, WDMH Foundation Board Chair Arnold Scheerder, Claudette McMillan, and Diane Crummy.

Make sure to start things off right by exercising your dog! Dogs need the socialization and mental stimulation of lengthy daily walks for their emotional and physical health. Use this time as training time as well, dogs need to learn to respond to commands in different settings. The Ottawa Humane Society is running two fall basic dog obedience sessions starting on Monday, Sept. 23, and Thursday, Oct. 3. There are three levels of classes: puppies (4-11 months), adolescents (1-2 years) and adults (2 years and up). These classes are a great way to socialize your dog and teach them basic commands, etiquette, and most importantly, have fun. For more information on dog training and dog obedience classes email programs@ottawahumane.ca.

Bronx is a 4 year old Sled Dog rescue (Ottawa SPCA) that made it all the way down to Ottawa from Nunavut. He is an athlete at heart and loves to live the active life joining his family on daily bike rides, jogs and long walks. When he’s home, Bronx loves to find a cozy cool place to sleep and only ever “comes to life” when it’s meal time or a visitor rings the door bell. He is very social and will greet everything and anything with an enthusiastic tail wag, gives gentle kisses when asked, and is the pride and joy of his owners. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

behaviours. Give your new dog a routine to adhere to, consistency and rewarding desired behaviour from your dog will make training a breeze. By taking an active role in teaching your dog, you will be able to train the dog the way you want. Knowing your dog Similar to children, dogs understand different things at different stages of their development. Remember that as pups mature, their independence grows. Puppies are socially dependent on us, so during the first few months, they will often listen better and stay close to home. It is when they mature, especially through adolescence, that their world becomes much larger. So keep them close to you and under control at all times, and continue your training program on a regular basis.

Owning a dog can be a very rewarding experience. How you train your dog has a big impact on whether your relationship will be one of companionship or frustration. Adopting a training program from the beginning is a fun way to get to know your dog and sets the stage for a successful relationship. What is training? Training is a form of communication between a dog and his owner. Since dogs cannot speak, it is up to the owner to learn how to communicate with the dog. All owners can benefit from training classes, even if they have previously owned a dog or trained many in the past; remember that every dog is different. What is your role in training? If you don’t train your dog, he won’t learn appropriate

Bank robbed at gunpoint Staff

News - Two male suspects robbed a bank on Hazeldean Road during the early morning hours of Thursday, Sept. 12. Ottawa police are investigating after the
