Roundabout coming for Parkway and Stagecoach Intersection rebuild delayed past 2014 Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson has given the green light to his ward’s first roundabout at the intersection of Parkway, Stagecoach and Apple Orchard Roads.

Thompson said he’s still hesitant about the progressive traffic design, but residents and city staff have convinced him to give it a try. He said two-thirds of about 600 survey respondents supported the roundabout. “Obviously it’s a big step forward, but I think it will work,” Thompson said. “I think it’s just one of those things you have to get used to using.” But residents won’t have to get used to it just yet. Thompson said the plan to

realign Apple Orchard with Parkway has been put off past 2014 in favour of several smaller projects across the city. “There are other projects in the hopper that have been there a long time, and they can do two or three of them (for the same price) and get them out of the way,” he said. The repaving of Parkway will still get done in 2014, he said, but crews will stop short of the intersection. Thompson refused to speculate when the intersection

may get done, but said it will “move faster up the queue” because most of the preparatory legwork has been done. Greely Community Association president Bruce Brayman said he’s pleased with the roundabout decision, but frustrated with the delay. “There is definitely a feeling in Greely that we get pushed off a lot,” he said. Greely residents have been debating the merits of a roundabout versus a traffic signal at the intersection since last April, when city staff present-

ed both options at a community association meeting. The cost differences were negligible – a traffic signal would cost $1.3 million while a roundabout would cost $1.4 million. At the time, city staffer Campbell Inwood suggested that roundabouts offer better traffic flow at peak hours. Instead of backing up one direction of traffic with a light, all sides could travel through the roundabout more efficiently. See PARKWAY, page 3

some wiggle room to create wider, paved shoulders for cyclists and pedestrians. He said reducing the lane

widths will also offer some space, while slowing trafďŹ c down. Greely residents have long been clamouring for a complete rebuild of Parkway, which runs through the heart of the village. Residents complain that it is unsafe for kids riding their

bikes and is crumbling away at the edges. Thompson said most of the road will simply be repaved, but sections of the road will be rebuilt as necessary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some sections theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to dig up and put a better base in,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Occupy Manotick: ‘Keep it to 40’ campaign speeds up Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - Manotick drivers are planning a takeover of residential streets in an effort to limit speeding. The Keep it to 40 campaign encourages residents to drive the speed limit – 40 kilometres per hour on every street but Manotick Main – to convince others to do the same. “If we do 40, everyone behind us will have to do 40, too,” said Klaus Beltzner, president of the Manotick Village and Community Association, the group behind the campaign. The association hosted a public meeting on Oct. 30 to recruit campaign volunteers and a pledge that they’ll go 40 km/h from now on. Beltzner said it is Manotick residents who are speeding, and Manotick residents who have to make it stop. “It’s us who know the roads, us who believe we are in complete control of our vehicle,” he told the crowd. “But the ones outside who are walking or cycling are the ones at risk if we happen to hit them.” Long Island Road is a particular problem, he said,

especially near St. Leonard Catholic School. A city speed board posted on the street for 12 hours on Aug.1 recorded the speeds of 584 northbound drivers, and found that 535, or 92 per cent, went over the 40 km/h limit. On average, drivers went 51 km/h but one driver was clocked at 72 km/h, more than 30 over. Potter Drive also had a speed board monitor eastbound traffic over a 10-day period in October 2011. That study clocked one driver at 110 km/h – more than 70 over the limit – and 88 per cent of drivers went over 40 km/h. The community association and other groups have long called for a more walkable village, and Beltzner said following the speed limit will help that cause. He said pedestrians have a 20 per cent chance of serious injury or death if hit at 40 km/ h, but that quickly rises to 80 per cent at 50 km/h. “At 60 km/h, it’s pretty much game over,” Beltzner said. He got the information from a cycling advocacy website, copenhagenize.com. He said the fact that the vil-

Klaus Beltzner speaks about speeding issues with a small crowd at the Manotick Legion on Oct. 30. lage lacks sidewalks on most streets means drivers must make roads safer for everyone. “We have to share the road with more vulnerable people like pedestrians and cyclists,” he said. “They have as much right to be there as we do.”

SLOW MOVEMENT

The Keep it to 40 campaign hopes to start a movement that will slowly normalize a calmer pace in the village. “Right now it feels comfortable to do 60, and going 40 feels slow,” Beltzner said. “The first couple weeks will

feel awfully constrained, but then it will start to feel better.” The campaign hopes to collect pledges from local drivers, who can then advertise their commitment through bumper stickers, lawn signs and other swag. Large signs welcoming drivers while reminding them

to respect speed limits are also an option, Beltzner said, although he hasn’t confirmed the city’s rules. The campaign relies heavily on peer pressure, which Beltzner and other residents readily admit. “Suddenly (speeders) will see the signs and they’ll smarten up,” said resident Bruce Willems. “They’ll be reminded and they’ll be intimidated. That’s how it begins (to have an impact).” Of course, sticking to the speed limit can lead to road rage, something Robert Peterson knows all too well. He said he has had several incidents with raging drivers near his street off Long Island, including one that lead him to get out of his car and chastise the erratic driver on his tail. “I’m enthusiastic about this project,” he said. “Teaching people to cope with the road rage has got to be a big part of it.” Community police officer Const. Arun Daniels said road rage should always be reported to the police. For more information or to volunteer for the organizing committee email president@manotickvca.org.

Residents query plans for roads, transit at budget consultation plan), so we have control over when we complete projects, when we can afford it,” she said. “It’s ambitious.” Knoxdale and Baseline roads in Nepean are among the ones to be resurfaced under the city’s plan. “Baseline is badly in need of asphalt,” Piero said. “I often tell people I don’t get coffee when I am driving on Baseline because by the time I get to where I am going the cup will be empty.” Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt said his residents will be pleased with the improvements to Rideau Valley Drive. It will get a $2.6 million facelift, replacing the storm sewers, the road, curbs and sidewalks between Rogers Stevens and Dorack drives. “It’s something that needed to be done,” he said. Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said residents are happy to see road improvements and other new infrastructure. “We are going to see five new parks in Ward 22,” he said.

News - Roads and transit were highlighted by residents who turned out at the city’s third public consultation on the 2014 draft budget at Nepean Sportsplex on Oct. 30. Kyle Peori, vice-president of the National Capital Heavy Construction Association, thanked council for its $45-million investment in resurfacing roads and asked if there was an appetite for a bigger tax increase to increase the amount available for road reconstruction. Council is aiming for a 1.9 per cent tax increase, which is the smallest increase in seven years. Peori said topping up the increase to 2.5 per cent would allow for another seven million to be spent on road infrastructure. “That’s about 20 to 30 kilometres of road,” Peori said. Mayor Jim Watson said the target for the tax increase was to match inflation – which is two per cent. “We have spent a record amount on road resurfacing and rebuilding over the last three years,” he said. “I wouldn’t support going a tax increase above inflation.” Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder echoed the mayor’s comment. “We placed an affordability lens on the TMP (transportation master

Road and traffic infrastructure are a major part of the draft 2014 budget, and particularly important for rural and suburban residents who depend on the road network to get around. that transit fare increases average 2.5 per cent. The pass is $35 per month, but users have to top up their fares by $2 if they ride ParaTranspo buses. “The cost of my pass has gone up by 20 per cent since 2012,” she said. Pat Scrimgeour, manager of transit planning for OC Transpo, said the move was to bring the cost of the pass in alignment with the seniors pass. “It’s still the most heavily dis-

counted pass we have,” he said. Gardner also called for a monthly pass to be made available for children between the ages of six and 12. She said she accompanies her young granddaughter on the bus to go to school and other social activities. Being forced to pay per use is costly. “Between her father and I we pay almost $90 per month,” she said.

Scrimgeour said if council directed staff to do so, they could look at a pass for children. He added if a child were taking the bus twice a day, five days a week, the monthly cost will be more than $60. The city’s last public consultation on the budget is set for city hall on Nov. 7. Residents can also provide feedback by emailing budget2014@ ottawa.ca.

Local farmers honoured for innovation Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - Two of rural south Ottawa’s most innovative farms have been recognized by the province. Castor River Farm east of Metcalfe and Roots and Shoots Farm in Manotick Station both received Premier’s Awards for agri-food innovation and excellence on Oct. 15. Fifty farms across the province received similar awards in a series of presentations throughout October. The award program recognizes agricultural innovations that improve existing products, create jobs and drive economic growth, the program’s website says. In the case of Castor River Farm, owners George Wright and Kim MacMullin are ahead of a trend to bring gluten-free products directly to their customers. The small-scale grain farmers grow gluten-free oats and buckwheat on their property alongside traditional wheats, barley and other grains that do contain gluten.

Wright said it’s precisely because they’re so small that they can keep their gluten-free products safe from contamination. “When you grow grain on a small scale, we transfer grain by the bucket,” he said. It’s relatively easy to keep those buckets separate, he said. The husband and wife team have also duplicated much of their farm equipment so that the gluten-free equipment never touches crops containing the problematic protein. Wright said very few grain farmers in North America sell directly to local consumers, instead opting to sell their crops as commodities to local feed mills. Wright said selling directly to consumers through the Manotick Farmers’ Market or the Castor River store helps him have more control over his product’s purity, he said. “People who need glutenfree products are obsessed with what’s happening in the mill, but there are so many more places upstream from the mill that can contaminate,” Wright said. He said selling directly also gives him the freedom to

please his customers. “Now I can grow anything I think the consumer will want, which is completely liberating in a way.” Castor River’s gluten-free rolled oats are by far its most popular product – but not by design. “The rolled oats have just taken off. It wasn’t our initial plan,” Wright said. He and MacMullin began planting the oats about six years ago and customers loved them, he said. At the time the gluten-free aspect wasn’t the biggest selling point. But now that he has the ability to test for contamination, that’s what customers want. Wright said he and MacMullin might consider switching to more gluten-free crops as demand continues to rise, but they haven’t got there yet. He said the provincial award was a pleasant surprise. “It’s big,” he said. “It just feels good to be recognized for something.” Roots and Shoots Farm in Manotick Station was also recognized with a Premier’s Award at the Oct. 15 ceremo-

Robin Turner, Jess Weatherhead and Danny Beswick from Roots and Shoots Farm, Glengarry-Prescott-Russell MPP Grant Crack, Benjamin Bercier and Mario Bourgeois from Cassel Brewery and George Wright from Castor River Farm celebrate the Premiers Award in Alfred, Ont. on Oct. 15. ny in Alfred, Ont. east of Ottawa. The organic vegetable farm operates as a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm, which means shareholders pay for a share of the harvest in advance and receive a pre-determined amount of produce throughout the growing season.

That growing season is getting longer every year as Roots and Shoots works to add greenhouses and sustainable growing techniques to its farm. Last year the farm added four new greenhouses, which allow farm managers Robin Turner and Jess Weatherhead to grow spinach, kale and let-

tuce throughout the winter, all without heat. The trick is to seed the crops in September to ensure the plants are mature enough to withstand freezing temperatures once the mercury drops. Then Turner and Weatherhead cover the greens and harvest them on days when the greenhouse temperature reaches 3 C.

Just do it, for artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time the city put its full weight behind the Arts Court expansion after patching together funding to get the long-running project off the ground. The expansion will now cost the city $34 million. The federal government was asked to pitch in $9 million to go along with $6 million contributed by the province â&#x20AC;&#x201C; money originally allocated for a performing arts centre on Elgin Street before those plans fell through â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but declined to help out. The city has now approved an extra $8.2 million to make up for the federal share. Mayor Jim Watson is enthusiastic about the project, saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rare opportunity to build this type of infrastructure in the downtown core. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a strong desire certainly on my part to see that we invest in a significant facility for arts and culture in the downtown core,â&#x20AC;? he said. This project is a boon to the arts community, and will provide space to nurture and promote creative endeavours. It has the potential to not just help the Ottawa arts scene, but to also attract artists from outside the capital to what should be a wonderful new facility. But the city needs to take one further step to help the Arts Court reach its full potential: foot the whole

bill. As it stands, the current Arts Court tenants will be on the hook for $3.2 million of the expansion cost. While they may be happy to raise the money in exchange for the improved facilities, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that money be put to better use by those tenants? That sum â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $3.2 million â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is no small change in the artistic world. It could go a long way toward making art, rather than paying for equipment and fixtures for the expanded facility. Why then isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the city just coming up with another $3.2 million? There was money allocated in the budget for a great many things, a budget featuring the lowest property tax increase of the current council term at 1.9 per cent. Adding an extra few million wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have changed that amount in any noticeable way. The argument could be made that if the tenants have a stake in paying for the expansion, it will make for a stronger partnership. The tenants already have a significant stake in the project: they were involved at every step of the planning process so far. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason to believe they would all of a sudden take such a small gesture by the city for granted. In light of multi-billion dollar transit visions, significant stadium renewals and extensive road renovations, surely the city can come up with a few extra million to help a worthwhile arts project.

Taking a small risk to right the wrongs of the world

ame 3 ended on a play that had never been seen before in a baseball World Series: a St. Louis Cardinals runner thrown at home plate was called safe because it was ruled that he had been obstructed by a Boston Red Sox player. A terrible ruckus ensued but the call stood. The run the umpires allowed to count was the winning run in the game. Even people who were delighted that Boston lost were a bit chagrined at the call. There had been no intent to obstruct (although that turned out to be irrelevant). More important, it just seemed like an unfortunate way for a game that had been exciting and well-played to end â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with an umpireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretation of an obscure rule. No one was really happy about it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although it could safely be said that the Red Soxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unhappiness exceeded that of the Cardinals. But since these were professional players with professional umpires and a professional rule book, there was no alternative, no going back. Which is too bad, because if the game had been played by little kids, the outcome would have been much more satisfactory. When little kids play games, as memory serves, a controversial play such as that one would spark an intense argument, but there

Therefore, the kids would fall back on a tried-and-tested solution: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take it over,â&#x20AC;? someone would say, and they would all agree on that. The play would be repeated, probably with an outcome that no one could argue about and that would be that. That methodology survives to this day and is not reserved for children. Adult players of games such as tennis will sometimes use it, when there is no agreement on whether a ball was in or out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Play it again,â&#x20AC;? someone will suggest, and they will. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good solution: the game is won or lost without the bitterness of controversy. And it makes you wonder whether â&#x20AC;&#x153;take it overâ&#x20AC;? might usefully be applied to other aspects of life.

Manotick News EMC - Thursday, November 7, 2013

Take the Senate. Please. Suppose Nigel Wright could have said â&#x20AC;&#x153;take it overâ&#x20AC;? after writing Mike Duffy the cheque. That would have been better for him and the prime minister, if not for Mike Duffy. Going back even earlier, the prime minister might have wanted to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;take it overâ&#x20AC;? after making the original appointment of Duffy to the Senate. And going back even further, the Fathers of Confederation might, in retrospect, have wanted to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;take it overâ&#x20AC;? after creating the Senate in the first place. A lot of work has to be done on this concept, no matter how useful it might seem on the surface. How many take-it-overs should any one person be allowed? Under what conditions might â&#x20AC;&#x153;take-it-overâ&#x20AC;? be accepted or rejected? And, inevitably, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;take it overâ&#x20AC;? a federal or provincial responsibility? Further, there is a need for a cultural shift, as people learn to shed their winner-take-all mentality and accept the notion that a defeated or hideously embarrassed person deserves another chance. But once we got over the initial awkwardness, we might be pleasantly surprised at the number of improved results in our day-today living and the life of our governmental

institutions. Now, you have to be careful with this. As readers of Stephen King will know, taking it over does not always produce the best result. In his novel 11/22/63, Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s protagonist journeys back in time with the intention of preventing the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Along the way he prevents other small mishaps from happening, and this version of taking it over causes all sorts of unintended calamities. Still, it might be worth the risk if it could prevent the Senate scandal, not to mention the Senate itself, as well as the obstruction call at third base.

Book captures cheese factories of Rideau Township Jennifer Westendorp jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News - It may be coincidence that the first cheese factory in Rideau Township opened on the same day as the Dominion of Canada was formed, but the symbolism is powerful. On July 1, 1867, the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia unified and the first cheese factory in the County of Carleton opened for business on a property in North Gower. The decision to erect the factory was made by a group of local farmers in April. Two months later, the farmers were driving their milk to the new factory. “The thing is they had to be close enough to the farm so the farmer could drive his milk to the factory,” said Iona Joy, author of ‘Cheese Factories of Rideau Township.’ “They had to be within two and a half miles to the farm, which was a five mile round trip. That’s why you see them dotted around farms.” Joy said that some of the factories were close to rivers, which enabled the cheese to be put on boats and get shipped to Montreal. Edward Kidd of Burritts Rapids purchased the North Gower factory 11 years later.

SUBMITTED

The North Gower cheese factory was built in 1867. A book on area cheese factories has been updated by the Rideau Township Historical Society. Kidd, who served as a Member of Parliament for several terms early in the 1900s, eventually owned a chain of cheese factories in Carleton County. Kidd trained for the cheese business at his father’s cheese factory in Burritts Rapids. This factory was located in Oxford Township across the Rideau River from Rideau Township, but nearby farmers from Rideau also drew their milk to this site. Successive owners included Thomas Hicks and Royden Olmstead. This first cheese

factory burnt down in August, 1932. A second cheese factory was built in North Gower beside Stevens Creek and opened for business in the spring of 1933. The following year, Roy Olmstead sold the factory to Ivan C. Wiltse who operated it until Nate Stuart purchased it in 1945. It closed a few years later and in 1952 it became and remains a private home. The purpose of ‘Cheese Factories of Rideau Township’ is to serve as a tribute to

cheese makers and the farmers who contributed so much both to the local community and to the Canadian economy. “I was a member of the historical society back in 1987,” said Joy. “A couple of members suggested that we start to locate and identify old cheese factory buildings. At the time, we knew about four. Once we started talking to people, we found more.” Joy said it didn’t take long to recognize the importance of cheese factories in the Rideau Township, all of which were

closed down by the 1960’s. “Around the turn of the 20th century, it was at times the second and third largest export from Canada,” said Joy. “Timber was at the top and cheese took turns with fish. It was a huge part of the Canadian economy, with 95 per cent being exported to Great Britain.” The Rideau Township Historical Society and Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee joined forces to delve into the history of cheese factories in Rideau Township. Taped interviews were conducted with local residents. “At one point, there were 70 people involved,” said Joy. “Once we had all this information, we decided to put it into a book. It was really fun to do.”The first edition of ‘Cheese Factories of Rideau Township’ was released in 1990. The second edition was launched October 16, 2013. “The project really began in 1987, with the interview and research we were doing at the archives and the land registry office,” said Joy. “This edition has a lot more material. It’s a new and improved version.” Joy spoke of five standing

cheese factories in the Rideau Township, which include one on Roger Stevens Drive in North Gower, one in Kars, one in Carsonby, one off Malakoff Road and one in Goodstown. In total, there were 12 cheese factories serving farmers within Rideau Township, all of which are featured in ‘Cheese Factories of Rideau Township.’ Joy worked at the Rideau Township Archives from the time it opened until 2006. “I joined the historical society and found it really interesting,” said Joy. “I met some wonderful people. I loved being there. I might volunteer again.” ‘Cheese Factories of Rideau Township’ can be purchased at Dickinson House in Manotick, the Rideau Branch of the City of Ottawa Archives in North Gower, the General Store in Kars and Office Pro in Manotick. For more information on the book, contact the Rideau Township Archives at (613)-489-2926 or Jane Anderson at (613)-692-4147. The book costs $20 and all proceeds will go to the Rideau Township Historical Society.

CHEO taking the ouch out of flu shots Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

News - Babies can say goodbye to the “ouch” when it comes to getting their flu vaccine. CHEO recently launched a new program called Be Sweet to Babies, aimed at helping parents find way to reduce the pain when it comes to immunizations. The research team behind the project is lead by Dr. Denise Harrison, chair in nursing care of children, youth and families at CHEO and University of Ottawa. The group put together a YouTube video which demonstrates ways for parents to help alleviate the immunization pain. Immunizations can be painful for infants and distressing for parents, but it doesn’t have to be. Through breastfeeding or offering their infant sugar-water, the pinch of the needle is not even felt. “This is something we all need to consider doing from a parent’s perspective,” she said. But, she added, the majority of parents or doctors are not made aware of these simple and effective ways to reduce the pain. Research shows that breastfeeding babies, giving them sugar water and holding them upright in a secure front to front position effectively reduces pain during immunizations. The upright front-front holding also

works for young children, she added. However, these strategies are rarely used by health care providers and parents. “Some nurses and doctors don’t even know about this, which is why we are trying to show the video to as many people as possible,” she said. CHEO’s Be Sweet to Babies research team carried out a review of 142 of the videos. “We noticed almost all of the babies cried before or during their injections, with some crying solidly for over two minutes after the injections,” said Dr. Harrison. “No videos showed breastfeeding or use of sugar water during the injections and only four babies were held in a front-front position.” As a result of their findings, CHEO’s Be Sweet to Babies research team decided to post their own video on YouTube demonstrating effective pain reduction techniques being put into practice. “It’s mind-blowing how these simple distractions can help them,” Harrison said. “It really does give them comfort.” The team will monitor the number of hits, comments, likes and dislikes the video receives over the next 12 months. It will also monitor all newly posted videos to see whether effective pain reduction strategies are starting to be implemented as a result. “At CHEO, we believe in using evidencedriven health care to ensure the best outcomes for our children, youth and families,”

said Harrison. “We hope this project will change standard practices for giving shots, therefore reducing tears and fears during injections now and in the future.” In addition, CHEO has developed and disseminated immunization pain fact sheets. These fact sheets have easy-to-follow advice on how to reduce pain during injections for babies, children and teens. For more information visit www.cheori.org,

Dickinson House honours local war efforts with new exhibit Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - Manotick’s role in Canada’s great wars will come alive at the Dickinson House this November. The Rideau Township Historical Society will present a special exhibit between Nov. 9 and 11 chronicling the Dickinson House in times of war. The exhibit follows Manotick’s contributions through the First World War, Second World War and the Korean War, personified through First World War soldier Hubert Stamp, who died in battle, and the five Spratt siblings who all served in the 1940s. “We’re hoping people will take away the examples of the types of contributions that local families made,” said Maureen McPhee, chairperson of the Dickinson House committee. The exhibit begins in the First World War. The parlour

will be set up as though the ladies of the Manotick Women’s Institute have just left the room: half-finished knit socks and scarves will be strewn about, and nightshirts will be under construction at the vintage sewing machine stations. McPhee said the women’s institute spent much of the First World War sewing and knitting to make care packages for local boys fighting overseas. Along with the necessities to keep soldiers warm in the trenches, the women also sent Christmas stockings and other treats to help morale, McPhee said. “We’re going to set up the room as if the women had just stood up and walked away,” she said. Alongside the knitting party, McPhee and her team have pulled together information and memorabilia belonging to Hubert Stamp, a local soldier who would have received some of these packages.

Money from his pocket, letters and other clues to this soldier’s life will be on display. Visitors can then get to know the Spratt family, which lived in Dickinson House from the early 1930s until 1948. All five surviving Spratt children (one died in childhood) served in the Second World War, including Helen Spratt. Helen served as a civilian cipher clerk in Gaspé, Que. unravelling radio frequency transmissions from German u-boats in the North Atlantic. Using a system called highfrequency direction finding, land stations would triangulate their signals with signals received on Royal Canadian Navy ships to determine where the enemy submarines were hiding. Helen later became a chief cipher clerk for the navy. Her brother Charles, the oldest sibling, received a military medal of bravery for helping his platoon get past enemy

lines in 1944. “During an attack he had a machine gun and he allowed his platoon to reach their objective,” McPhee said. William and Kenneth Spratt also signed up, although by the time Kenneth was done his training, the war was winding down. Richard served in the Korean War in the 1950s carrying troops to Japan. “It’s a striking example of the type of commitment that was there,” McPhee said. “To have every member of the family involved in the war, I don’t know how unique it is but it’s certainly impressive.” Richard Spratt now lives in British Columbia and will be attending the exhibit on Nov. 11. “He has reviewed everything we’ve done and provided information,” McPhee said. The exhibit will be open Nov. 9 and 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Nov. 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Greely actress part of new Cronenberg project Stephanie La Rochelle part of futuristic multi-media art show Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Arts - At only 19, Greely actress Stephanie La Rochelle has entered the weird and warped world of Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg. La Rochelle, who made national headlines as a finalist on CBC’s Over the Rainbow competition to find Canada’s best Dorothy last year, has left Greely for greener pastures – Toronto – and has now landed herself a role in Cronenberg’s latest futuristic project. The concept, called Body/Mind/ Change, builds on his fictional biotechnology ideas from previous films like Scanners and Videodrome to create an interactive videogame experience for online users. The idea revolves around the POD (personal on-demand), a biotech implant that claims to know what you want before you do. “POD reinvents the recommendation engine to make discovering the things you need, love or desire effortless,” a website explanation reads. “This state of the art biotech implant will guarantee you personalized recommendations that are 99.999 per cent relevant all the time. POD grows

with you to become an intuitive companion, enhancing your life and storing the best that the world has to offer for immediate recall at any time. After a light training period, POD will be able to predict your deepest unfulfilled desires – even the ones you didn’t know you had.” The multi-media project is part of a tribute to Cronenberg through the TIFF Bell Lightbox theatre. “It’s a little strange,” La Rochelle said. “Cronenberg’s projects are usually different. But it’s a cool concept.” La Rochelle plays a 14-year-old girl in the interactive video game, which is a younger flashback version of a character named Elena. Every so often the game flashes back to the younger Elena with her brother. “When they were younger she went through a traumatic experience with him,” La Rochelle said. “It goes through times in their life when he was mean to her and she sort of gets back at him in a way.” La Rochelle didn’t want to give too much of the storyline away. She said working on a Cronenberg project is exciting, especially at such an early stage of her career. “It’s incredible to be affiliated with such a big name,” she said. La Rochelle will soon start rehearsing for her role in the Sound of Music at Hamilton’s Theatre Aquarius, which will run between December and January. She said she is enjoying her life in Toronto. She has been taking classes

while auditioning for roles. “Things are good,” she said. The singer said she wanted to come back to perform at the Greely Players Christmas concert at the end

of November, but she will be too busy with rehearsals. Even if she can’t visit very often, La Rochelle said she still draws support from her Greely Players family.

Brother, sister and pet rat spotted at Kars on the Rideau Dosi Cotroneo

Community - Squeaks, squeals and roaring laughter could be heard down the halls of Kars on the Rideau Public School on Friday, Oct. 25, as sibling duo Tommy and Melanie Glatzmayer and their pet rat were back in action sharing their story of inclusion and acceptance with students and staff. Tommy is a Grade 6 Kars on the Rideau student, and was beaming from ear to ear as he had his older sister Melanie by his side to experience a taste of his typical school day. In between classes, the pair led a morning and afternoon assembly where they read and shared their adventures from their latest book, Tommy and Melanie have two pet rats and one syndrome: Catelli Castle. So where do the two pet rats come into the picture and why was only one pet rat in attendance? Melanie and Tommy’s father, John Glatzmeyer, grew up with pet rats and wanted his kids to have this experience. The two pet rats have proven to be not only extremely fun for the entire family, but very therapeutic for Melanie, who was diagnosed at the age of three with the rare Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLs). There are about only 100 known cases in Canada and about 2,400

cases in the United States. Melanie has endured countless tests, surgeries, sleepless nights and challenging moments to get to where she is today. The pet rats help calm her down, keep her company, and give her much affection. Melanie’s pet rat could not attend the presentation as he was at home recovering from a shoulder injury. The book-writing adventure began in 2009 when six-year-old Tommy came home from school crying because his big sister Melanie was being teased by other students for appearing to be “different.” This evolved into the story, Melanie and Tommy have two pet rats and one syndrome, co-written by Tommy and his mother Nathalie Wendling. Last year, the family released its second book, Catelli Castle. The popularity and powerful message behind the stories has blown the sister and brother act into a whirlwind book tour schedule that has taken them across Canada and the United States. Tommy said the book has made a big difference. “My favorite part is that no one makes fun of my sister anymore,” he said. Tommy’s goal has been clear since the very beginning: he wants everybody to accept his sister. Having his

sister join him at school all day made him proud. “My friends were so nice to Melanie,” he said. “She was a superstar.” Superstar may not be too far off the mark as word of Melanie and Tommy’s books have made them local celebrities. During a summer book signing at My Toy Store in Manotick, Grade 6 Kars on the Rideau student Madeline Lamont picked up

a copy. With her tenth birthday fast approaching, she decided to have her classmates bring donations for the CdLS Foundation in lieu of gifts. The support was overwhelming and every classmate was invited to attend. Together they raised $400. Madeline and her mother, Meg Lamont, presented the cheque to Tommy and Melanie at the assembly.

“It’s wonderful to see that kids can have an impact,” said Madeline’s mother, Meg Lamont. “She was selfless, and willing, at ten years old, to organize this. Even the students who could not attend the party sent their donations.” Visit www.2petrats.com for more information about Melanie and Tommy, their upcoming events, and to watch some funny rat videos.

Manotick remembers with three local services The Manotick Legion encourages anyone who cannot attend any of the services to observe two minutes of silence at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11. “In this way you participate in the ‘wave of silence’ as it moves across the country from the east coast to the west coast, and so pay respect to those who sacrificed their lives so that we may live in freedom,” the legion said. The legion is hoping the Vintage Wings in Gatineau will do a fly-past during the Manotick service.

Nepean couple still praised for tale of journey to inner peace Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - A Nepean couple continues to get kudos about their story of a journey for peace that started on the Camino de Santiago – an 800-kilometre pilgrimage in northern Spain and ended up in Jerusalem. Mony Dojeiji left her job in 2001 and started walking. She said the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 left her feeling like she needed to find inner peace. Along the way, she met Albert Agraso, a native of Spain who decided to join her on a walk to spread their message of peace from Rome to Jerusalem. And the rest is history. The couple pooled their respective journals from the trip and published Walking for Peace: An Inner Peace in 2012. Later that year they also published a story for children called I am Happy, a book that deals with themes of self-image and conflict. The story is about a child named Angela who sees the world through the eyes of love. Angela appreciates the seemingly ordinary in her life – her room, her toys, her family, her neighbours, her friends, her school, and perhaps most importantly, herself. The pair, now married, said they wanted to pass their own inner peace off to their daughter. “We really want to encourage her to have a healthy view of herself,” Dojeiji said, adding the graphics in the book created by Agraso show

a child with a belly to celebrate her natural shape. Other characters in the childrens book are patterned after neighbours and their daughter’s teachers. “They aren’t exactly the same but they serve as the inspiration for the drawings,” Agraso said. The book received a silver award for inspirational book as part of the Mom’s Choice Awards this summer in New York City. The book also won a Mariposa Award for Best First Book at the 15th Annual International Latino Book Awards. Walking for Peace has received similar accolades, from the 2012 Global Ebooks for action adventure and more recently, a first place in the Latino Books into Movies Awards for best action/adventure book to be made into a movie. The award is organized by Latino Literacy Now and was handed out in Los Angeles in September. The amateur author and illustrator are thrilled with their success and are currently planning a sequel for Walking for Peace. The next book will talk about a period of time when the two separated on their journey to Jerusalem. The plan is to write mostly from Agraso’s point of view, as he had to return to Spain due to the death of his father. “I think it is an important hole in the story we need to fill,” Dojeiji said, adding the couple will once again collaborate to write the book. For more information on the two books, visit www.walkingforpeace. com.

Ottawa doctors host impromptu Earn Extra Money! fundraiser for Ottawa Mission Keep Your Weekends Free! $2,800 will be used to buy new medical supplies and equipment Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A group of Ottawa doctors emptied their wallets to help out a local palliative care facility recently. One hundred doctors held a conference at the beginning of October to discuss end-oflife needs and palliative care services and it was there that some of the organizers, including Manotick family practitioner Dr. Alykhan Abdulla, asked those in attendance to donate some money to the Ottawa Mission’s Diane Morrison Hospice. “We were there, motivated to talk about end-of-life,” Abdulla said. “One of the things we wanted to do is get a conversation going and because we had a group of all in one room, we thought it would be even better to get doctors to give a donation for an organization that was in most need.” The idea to donate that particular hospice, Abdulla said, was because of a fellow doctor at the conference. “Jeff Turnbull has a history with the mission, so we decided to help their palliative care facility,” he said. Turnbull’s organization, Ottawa Inner City Health, provides health services to the palliative care beds at the Ottawa Mission. The doctors collected $2,800 to be able to purchase a blood testing machine. Priced at $2,500, the doctors used the remaining funds to buy blankets, socks and underwear for the mission. “It will give our hospice clients easier access to blood results, especially those with different diseases,” said Shirley Roy, spokeswoman for the mission. The machine offers faster intervention and less hassle for blood work because it involves only a finger prick. “We just really appreciate the recognition that these people are vulnerable; this type of donation promotes easier access to health care.” Roy added the support that this group of doctors has offered to the mission reinforces the commitment staff has to

Local doctors raised $2,800 for the Ottawa Mission’s Diane Morrison Hospice this month. The money will purchase a blood testing machine. help the homeless in the mission’s hospice. For the doctors, Abdulla said what he saw was a group of individuals motivated to help make significant changes with how palliative care is provided in the Ottawa region. “What’s amazing about physicians is that they are motivated to do good. You give them a challenge and they rise to it,” he said. “There has been a lot of controversy about end-of-life, and physicians want to have a conversation about dying. They are interested in making sure that the right things are being discussed and done.” Abdulla said part of those things discussed at the conference were to make sure patients know what their options are. “It’s about giving them in-

formation,” he said. “It’s about having conversations about personal care.” Abdulla has been practicing family medicine for more than 20 years, but it has only been in the past year that he has been training with a small group of local doctors to offer palliative care services to the community. He started his palliative care training by shadowing another doctor. “It’s a completely different mind-set,” he said. “You are not actually fixing things, you are having conversations, you are letting them know and feel empowered. And it’s about getting the patients the right kind of medications. It’s really about spending the time to listen and guide people through the process.”

Remembrance Day always held in high regard

M

other was always concerned that we ďŹ ve children didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the proper respect for the true meaning of Remembrance Day. The school at Northcote with only 18 pupils, had no piano and the few county ofďŹ cials were already involved with the ceremony in the town of Renfrew, and so there was little in the way of observance at the school. For this reason, Mother, each year, piled all of us into the Model T and headed into town where, as she put it, there would be a proper and ďŹ tting ceremony to remember those who had fallen in the First World War. Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three young brothers had all been in the army, even though Mother said they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t old enough to vote, but they were old enough to ďŹ ght in the war. By the way Mother talked about her brothers, I wondered if they perhaps had won the war singlehandedly. Without fail, the weather was always dreadful on Remembrance Day.

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories We would drive through freezing rain or snow, it seemed, and at a very young age I wondered if the terrible weather had something mysterious to do with the sombreness of the day. And so when we headed into Renfrew, we were bundled up like mummies with hats and mitts and winter boots. We certainly wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the luxury of wearing slacks on such a day and even though I usually hated them with a passion, I was very grateful for the heavy navy blue, ďŹ&#x201A;eecelined bloomers over our long underwear and long beige, ribbed stockings. But it never mattered how much clothes we had on, there was always a piercing wind rolling down Raglan

Street where the parade took place at the war memorial and it penetrated our bodies and had us shivering like leaves on tree. The children from the Renfrew schools always marched to the place where the ceremony was held. We ďŹ ve country children were very aware that we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really a part of a group, but that certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter to our mother. She would wait until the town school pupils had formed perfect lines, looking neither left nor right, and would march the ďŹ ve of us right up to the front row, and position us so that we were actually an extension of the line-up of town kids. My older sister Audrey was most embarrassed, but her protests did nothing to

sway our Mother. The town children had sheets of music and we would shudder in embarrassment when we would see Mother walk right over to a teacher, whisper in her ear, and then point to us. We would then see her head back to us with ďŹ ve sheets of music. For reasons much beyond my comprehension, someone from the town ranks of pupils always fainted. Just as sure as death and taxes, as soon as the person leading the program opened his mouth, one or two would topple over. If the overcome person was a girl, the teacher would rush up, fan her with the sheet music, and if that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help, she would be carried off with her eyes rolled into the back of her head. But if it was a boy pupil who had succumbed to the pressures of the day and toppled over, he was left to lie there until he either revived on his own or the ceremony ended. Emerson said, on the way home, â&#x20AC;&#x153;those Renfrew kids

The Renfrew children were the first to march off the parade grounds and Emerson ... turned on the heal of his gum-rubbers and marched back down the street to where Mother had parked the Model T. are a sickly lot ... certainly none of us ever fell over in a dead faint.â&#x20AC;? After all the war songs had been sung, out of the crowd would come a very old man with a shiny trumpet tucked under his arm. He would walk the full length of the parade area, and he wore a soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uniform that obviously had been borrowed. His hands were all but covered with the cuffs and the pant legs bagged over his swath-covered legs. He was very elderly and Mother, ever the one to add drama to any situation, said he probably fought in the Boer War. He played the trumpet loud and clear as a bell, and there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a dry eye in the crowd. The Renfrew children were the ďŹ rst to march off the

parade grounds and Emerson, not to be outdone by kids from town, turned on the heal of his gum-rubbers and with his arms swinging, marched back down the street to where Mother had parked the Model T. On the road back to Northcote we would be subjected once again to Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories of how her own brothers went off to war and often her voice would catch with the memory. But we knew she was ďŹ lled with pride and I too would be caught up in the stories. I would think of those uncles, who returned safely from battle unscarred and I would think I was related to true war heroes. Then I would know, even though I was very young, why Remembrance Day was so important to our mother.

Consider Adopting a Special Needs Pet The Ottawa Humane Society is often full of people in the community cat rooms, playing with the kittens. Just across the way, animals like sevenyear-old Gunner the cat watch all the attention bestowed upon those tiny bundles of fur. Though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also make wonderful and loving pets, being a little older or having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;special needâ&#x20AC;? means Gunner and others arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always the recipients of the same kind of interest. Gunner has been at the OHS since February. People visit, perhaps take a look, but then pass him up for a younger, smaller cat or kitten. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for Gunner and the other older or special needs animals to ďŹ nd loving forever homes to call their own. Special needs pets may require medication, a special diet, or extra post-adoption vet care. In some cases,

they need nothing more than a little extra time, patience and love from their owners. Potential adopters may be reluctant to bring Gunner home because of his special needs designation. He has a condition called recurrent conjunctivitis with chronic ocular discharge, which just means the tissue around his eyes gets inďŹ&#x201A;amed. This is usually caused by a viral infection and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely that once his stress level is reduced in his forever home, his immune system will get stronger and he will be less prone to these eye infections. Gunner loves to curl up on your lap for ear scratches and pets. He gets along well with other cats but prefers not to share his home with dogs as they scare him. He is also trained to walk on leash!

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly! To learn more about adopting an animal from the Ottawa Humane Society please contact us: Website: lll#diiVlV]jbVcZ#XV Email: 6Ydei^dch5diiVlV]jbVcZ#XV Telephone:+&(,'*"(&++m'*-

News - On the day a coalďŹ red electricity plant in Lambton, Ont. produced its last kilowatt, students at Algonquin College learned about the cost of carbon. The college hosted the Climate Change Reality project on Oct. 23, a group dedicated to improving awareness and action surrounding climate change, founded by former U.S. vice-president Al Gore. A panel of speakers that included Charles Hodgson, from Ecology Ottawa, Chris Henderson, president of Lumos Energy and Terrence Audla, president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, talked about everything from melting polar ice caps to the cost of storm activity on the economy. Hodgson said just in Otta-

Charles Hodgson from Ecology Ottawa is pictured with John Hamel, president of Ottawa Renewable Energy Corporation and Audrey Depault, a climate change leader with the Climate Change Reality Project during a seminar hosted at Algonquin College on Oct. 23. wa, the cost of storm activity reached $4.6 million in 2005, due to things like overďŹ&#x201A;owing storm sewers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things like green energy certainly come at a cost,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pay-menow-to-avoid-more-cost-later idea.â&#x20AC;?

Henderson echoed Hodgsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statements. Henderson said the Inuit are the canary in the coal mine and were the ďŹ rst to sound the alarm over the thinning of the ozone layer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They see very clearly the consequences of what the rest

of the world is doing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A two-degree hike in the rest of the world is a 10-degree hike in the arctic.â&#x20AC;? Henderson founded Lumos Energy in 2006. Henderson has helped enhance the capacity of Canadian ďŹ rms, utilities, communities and governments to develop clean energy projects and ďŹ nance new technologies. Audla, whose organization represents 53 Inuit communities across the country, said that most of those communities are coastal and feel the effects of climate change keenly. Hunters have found themselves drifting away from land, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That never used to happen, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to know the waters now.â&#x20AC;? Audla added that while there is concern over hunt-

Everyone should know the support of a strong foundation . It is our goal to provide all children and youth in care with long-term supportive relationships. These bonds can come in many forms, just like the children and youth in our care.

Ali and Branden are members of the Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program

Attach a War Amps confidentially coded key tag to your key ring. It’s a safeguard for all your keys – not just car keys.

The focus of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is child safety. We work in collaboration with families and community partners to resolve any concerns or struggles parents may be faced with. We provide the family with support to ensure children and youth receive safe and nurturing care, while staying at home. If a child does come into care, CASO continues to provide support so that the family, if possible, can be reunited. When a child comes into the permanent care of the Society, a permanency plan is created. This plan may include living with kin, legal custody, or adoption. Customary care is also an option for First Nation, Inuit and Métis children, which allows a child to live with a caregiver identified by the child’s community.

Our soups are made from scratch, using the best quality, fresh produce from our stores – even the chicken stock is made from scratch using our fresh Canadian chicken slowly simmered with farm fresh vegetables. Enjoy the delicious homemade flavour of our tasty Leek & Potato Soup made in small batches with fresh leeks, Yukon Gold potatoes, minced garlic and real cream. It's naturally delicious.

Science museum inducts three new members Michelle Nash

NEWS

News - Three pioneers of science are the most recent inductees to the Canadian Science and Engineering Hall of Fame. Part of the National Science and Technology Week activities, the Canada Science and Technology Museum announced it was inducting Arthur Porter, Sylvia Fedoruk and M. Vera Peters into the museum’s hall of fame. Porter (1910-2010) has been named a pioneer in the field of computers, building one of the world’s first analog computers in the early 1930s. He has also been credited with leading biomedical research programs in Canada. Fedoruk (1927-2012) was part of a team that helped develop the Cobalt-60 cancer therapy unit, which according to the museum has helped millions of people. The therapy unit became the international standard for cancer treatments. Fedoruk also

created one of the first nuclear scanners in the world, which helped to detect both liver and thyroid cancer. In 1998, Fedoruk served as lieutenant-governor of Saskatchewan after leaving her position as chancellor of the University of Saskatchewan. She was the first woman to hold both of these positions. Fedoruk is also a member of the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame. Peters’ (1911-1993) early research involved finding a cure for Hodgkin’s disease, which was at the time considered impossible. Her breast cancer research in the late 1950s demonstrated that a lumpectomy with radiation therapy is just as effective as a mastectomy, and this method has now become the norm in treating breast cancer. A partnership with the National Research Council of Canada, Industry Canada and the Association of Partners in Education, the museum established the hall of fame in 1991 to mark the council’s 75th anniversary.

UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN

Scientist and researcher Sylvia Fedoruk served as Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan after leaving her position as Chancellor of the University of Saskatchewan. She was the first woman to hold both of these positions. There are currently 57 members inducted into the hall of fame, including Alexander Graham Bell, J. Armand Bombardier and Sir Sandford Fleming. The hall is part of the museum’s Innovation Canada exhibition. Anyone can nominate a per-

son or an organization that has made exceptional contributions to the fields of science or engineering. The museum welcomes new inductees each year and more information about the hall and the museum is available at sciencetech.technomuses.ca.
