News – Tensions were high as Greely residents debated the merits of a new community park planned beside the Water’s Edge residential development last week. City park planner Jennifer Hemmings and landscape architect Jerrold Corush presented the plan to develop the 6.5 hectare plot of land south of Parkway Road on the east side of Bank Street on Nov. 13. The group of about 70 residents was generally pleased by the plan that includes tennis courts, a soccer field, green space and a playground. But the meeting grew tense when Georges Bedard, president of the Water’s Edge Owners Association, made his own presentation decrying the city’s plan to add skateboard and BMX facilities in the park’s north-west corner. He took issue with the city’s photos of clean, green BMX trails, and proceeded to show photos of a newly installed BMX park in Barrhaven that looked like nothing more than weedy dirt piles. He also showed photos of Ottawa skateboard parks covered in graffiti. “We don’t want this in our community,� Bedard told the crowd. “We feel it is inappropriate because it’s all going to be residential around it.� The plan for the Greely Village Centre commercial development west of the park has replaced much of its commercial plans with 62 adult lifestyle

units as well as a seniors’ residence. That means the BMX and skateboard facilities could back onto residential land rather than parking or arena facilities as was originally planned. That proposal - which has not been approved by the city - only came to light once park plans were in full swing, said Corush. Bedard said he would rather see the BMX facility placed in Andy Shields Park behind the community centre, because that’s a more central location. But Hemmings said the facility was purposely located close to Parkway Road so that it would be better lit and under the watchful eye of passing traffic. Andy Shields wouldn’t provide those added benefits. “There aren’t as many eyes on the park in that area,� Hemmings said. “You want those facilities in a very visible location.� While Corush noted the plan is flexible, he said he would rather work with the community to create a buy-in than move the BMX facility elsewhere in the park or village. “I don’t see any of the facilities as being non-compatible with what is going to go on the other side,� Corush said. Marty McSweeney agreed. As a member of the Ottawa BMX and Nepean BMX groups, he called out Bedard’s allegations that all BMX facilities end up looking seedy. McSweeney played a key role in building the Barrhaven site, and said the photos are misleading because the project was only finished this summer. He added it was built entirely by volunteers with no money from the city. That’s a stark contrast to the Greely plan, which has access to a $2 million budget and professional landscapers.

Overcoming obstacles Alexandra Fair, 8, carries her cement-laden feet through an obstacle course at a PD Day camp at Watson’s Mill on Nov. 15. The camp was mystery themed, and the obstacle course was meant to mimic the agility spies must possess to best their enemies. Kids crawled through dark tunnels, avoided deadly laser beams and even swung across a lake of lava to get to the end of the course.

Park to reflect Greely’s resource-rich history Continued from the front

“(Bedard) pitched it as ‘this is how (BMX) ends up’ but we just put it in this year,� McSweeney said, noting the volunteers plan to sod the Barrhaven site next spring. Greely Community Association president Bruce Brayman refused to wade into the debate. He said that residents can only offer their feedback to the city and let staff take it into consideration.


Corush emphasized the importance of reflecting Greely’s culture and history, and the community-level park includes several features that aim to do just that. His plan includes the creation of rock walls made from “remnant pieces� of the nearby quarries that define the area – many of which have been turned into naturalized ponds inside Greely’s subdivisions. “These remnant pieces in

the landscape remind us where we’ve come from in this area,� Corush said. A large swath of green space is also going to be preserved as the hub of the park, which Corush hopes will offer a comfortable and welcoming place for residents of all ages. “When you walk through there it feels comfortable,� he said. “We want to maintain as much of that feeling as possible while providing facilities. We don’t just want to jump in and put facilities here, there

and everywhere.� Since the park’s budget is $2 million, it also qualifies for a public art installation, which will be covered with at least one per cent of the overall budget. That art project could be made by a local professional artist, and the community is welcome to provide resources on the village history, themes and culture to inform the artist’s vision.

Local home added to heritage list termines if the building should be designated as a heritage site. The protection would only apply if the owners wanted to completely demolish the home. It wouldn’t prevent major renovations or a conversion of the existing building, although Moffatt said that is rare in Manotick. The home is zoned for mixed-use development, meaning the property could have a variety of residential and commercial uses. The councillor said he undertook the process of adding the home to the heritage regis-

News - A 120-year-old home at Manotick’s busiest intersection will be afforded some heritage protection. The home at 5514 Manotick Main St. won’t be designated as a heritage building, but that could come in the future because the city’s built heritage subcommittee agreed to add it to the heritage register. The home is for sale, and if the new owners wanted to demolish it, they would have to wait 60 days while the city de-

ter without informing the homeowners about the potential for restrictions. “The homeowner has no idea what I did,” he said. “I really don’t care. I care more about the village than the ability to make a profit at the corner of Bridge and Main.” There could be more additions of Manotick buildings to the register in the near future, Moffatt said. As part of the village’s secondary plan review, a public advisory group will identify other buildings in the village that could be protected in a similar way.

More wind farm talk needed: Moffatt


Let it snow Grade 7 student Dakota Bossio, of Osgoode, shows off holiday-inspired frames she and her mother make with scrapbook paper, vinyl and fun fillings during the 22nd-annual Christmas craft fair at St. Mark High School in Manotick on Nov. 9. Hundreds of people visited the school over the weekend for the holiday event.

News - With wind-farm concerns still simmering in North Gower, local councillor Scott Moffatt wants the city to have a stronger voice in whether those projects get approved.. Moffatt, who represents Rideau-Goulbourn ward, said his motion is merely a request to the province, but he hopes the gesture has an impact. During the next city council meeting, Moffatt hopes councillors will vote in favour of his non-binding request for the province to make whatever legislative or regulatory changes are needed to give municipalities a “substantive and meaningful role in siting wind projects.” Ottawa is the largest Ontario municipality that could be affected by the placement of wind farms, Moffatt said. Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli has said he is not in favour of municipalities having veto rights over wind energy projects. But the province has begun to make moves to allay

local wind-farm concerns. In the past, Chiarelli has said it’s unlikely for Prowind Canada to get approval for the North Gower wind farm without the city’s consent. This summer, Chiarelli outlined a new policy that would require proponents of large wind-farms to “work directly with” municipalities on where new turbines could be located. After meeting with the minister last week, Moffatt said Chiarelli indicated those new guidelines are coming in early 2014. Chiarelli also said Moffatt’s motion matches what the province wants to do. “We’re on the same page,” Moffatt said. But until those new rules are in place, Moffatt said he wants it known that North Gower opposes any application for a wind farm in the village. “As long as (Prowind is) interested and as long as there is no mechanism for saying the village is opposed to it, the threat is there,” Moffatt said. Local governments are responsible for land-use

planning decisions, and the locations of wind farms have implications for local planning, Moffatt said. The province’s insistence on having authority over those decisions and a lack of dialogue with municipalities has resulted in 70 cities and towns in Ontario declaring themselves unwilling to host wind farms. The community of North Gower wants Ottawa to be on that list when it comes to

a proposed Prowind Canada facility in their community. A group there called Ottawa Wind Concerns has presented a petition signed by more than 1,200 people to city council. The group is concerned that turbines could have negative effects on physical and mental health, as well as ruin the landscape. With files from TorStar News Service

Equality canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be compromised


ity council will soon begin discussions about a new layer of red tape designed to single out students and their landlords. The move is an attempt to create a second class of people in our city: renters. Coun. Rick Chiarelli plans to propose the regulation of rental properties, but only near Algonquin College. Landlords would need licences, and those licences would be in jeopardy if the renters bother the neighbours. Our youth, it seems, should be neither seen nor heard. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a case of picking on the voters a councillor may feel they can ignore as they placate homeowners who may be bothered by noise or mess at a nearby rental property. Never mind that the city has noise and property standards bylaws already in place; better to cater to those who cast ballots in greater numbers. The proposed regulation also presumes homeowners donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make noise or a mess. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hint that homeowners might need regulating in Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world. Adding the red tape of a licensing system for landlords near Algonquin could result in good, neighbourly students being booted out if landlords

decide one young person is one too many. Why take chances? If the process in onerous enough we may also see some landlords throw their hands up and walk away, selling off properties for non-residential uses. Would homeowners near the college prefer a drivethrough fast food outlet or gas station next door or across the street instead of rental homes? It should be obvious to anyone buying a home near Algonquin College that students may also want to live in the neighbourhood. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students and those seeking an education in the future shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay the price for a homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of due diligence. Push out the students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from neighbourhoods within walking distance of the college â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and maybe we can instead look forward to having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;student ghettoâ&#x20AC;? elsewhere in our city where there are fewer complaints (or ones the bylaw department can ignore) instead of young renters spread evenly amongst us. The Chiarelli plan probably sounds like music to the ears of some homeowners, but it also says owners have more rights than renters. This person is more important than that person. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both divisive and small-minded.


JFK, the news and the changing times


ith increasing frequency, you get reminders of how time has changed. Take this week, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The first reminder of how much time has changed is the fact that anyone under the age of, say, 55 has no recollection at all of the event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an event that older people, and not just Americans, count as one of the most important memories of their lives. For those who are old enough, the Kennedy assassination is one of those where-were-you moments. Some of the others might be, for Canadians, the October Crisis of 1970, another event that many are too young to remember, and 9/11, which is still way too close. Those of us who were around at the time John Kennedy was shot remember being glued to our TV sets all weekend. The assassination happened early Friday afternoon and TV coverage was around the clock. Unlike today, we were dependent on television and, to a lesser extent, the newspapers, for the latest developments. Today information would be flying around on the Internet every minute. Not all of that information would be accurate, mind you. Those were the days of afternoon newspa-

events at the World Trade Center in New York, and as recently as this month, a Toronto newspaper, The Sun, put out an extra to recount the latest developments in the Rob Ford saga. On such occasions, newspapers remember how important they are to people and go to extra lengths to put the information out. But by now, most readers are accustomed to going on line, often on newspaper websites. Times have changed. It would be nice if afternoon newspapers were around to record them. What we in the newspaper biz were told back in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s was that people were demanding a newspaper on their kitchen table in the morning. What we were also told, perhaps more significantly, was that advertisers wanted their ads on those kitchen tables all day, instead of just from late afternoon on. So all of the major papers in the country, and on the continent, went morning. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intriguing to speculate about what might have happened if they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done so. With those early deadlines, often before midnight, the newspapers could get to the breakfast table easily, but there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as much in them. Readers had to go elsewhere to find out who won some baseball and hockey games from the previous night. If they saw reviews of concerts, the reviews were written

about the first half. If there was a political development, a crime or an accident in the morning, they would read about it the next morning. That helped radio news and television news and, when it came along, that helped the Internet. The daily newspaper was becoming less of a factor in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily lives and less central to them when a major event occurred. Obviously there are still things a newspaper can do, such as provide exhaustive coverage, in-depth reporting and context. On Nov. 22, 1963, people looked to the daily newspaper for it. Today they look elsewhere.

Art gallery pops up on Manotick Main Street Emma Jackson

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A new gallery is adding a splash of colour to Manotick Main Street just in time for the Christmas shopping season. Manotick artists Mary Hardwick, Nancy Riggs and Jess Weatherhead have come together in the former Simple Pleasures building at 5548 Manotick Main St. to present a six-week â&#x20AC;&#x153;pop-upâ&#x20AC;? art gallery and studio space. The gallery carries the same name as the trioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring show, Collage and Colour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and walking into the space, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear why. An array of colours and textures immediately assault the senses. Hardwickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden-inspired depictions mix perfectly with Weatherheadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s detailed oil paintings of farms and faces.


Jess Weatherhead and Mary Hardwick show off some of their artwork at a new pop-up gallery on Manotick Main Street. The gallery will be open until Dec. 31. Riggsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; multi-media work adds a burst of texture to the room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All three of us have different skills that we bring to the space,â&#x20AC;? said Hardwick, a long-time Manotick resident and artist. Hardwick said their partnership is especially strong be-

cause they span the spectrum in age, experience and interests. Weatherhead is under 30, while Riggs is in her 50s and Hardwick is 68. That just serves to enhance the creative energy that flows through the studio, Hardwick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our friendship, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as easy

as falling off a log,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just roll.â&#x20AC;? The artists jumped at the chance to use the space while it sits vacant between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31, and Hardwick said the landlord was just as pleased to fill the storefront. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win for the community because there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a dead space on the main street, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win for us because we have somewhere to show our work, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win for herself to help cover costs, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win for the new tenants because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already a sense that somethingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on here,â&#x20AC;? Hardwick said. The gallery will be open each Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and every Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., but the artists will also open the store during the week so shoppers can visit â&#x20AC;&#x153;by chance or by appointmentâ&#x20AC;? until Dec. 31.


Hardwick has been a painter for more than 40 years, and usually turns to her garden for inspiration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a big, exuberant garden and I went nuts this year,â&#x20AC;? she laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop painting flowers.â&#x20AC;? Some of her paintings are acrylic, but others are done in encaustics, which uses beeswax, resin and pigment placed in layers to create a highly textured painting. Riggs also works in this medium, and Hardwick said having a studio space to set up all of their equipment semi-permanently is a god-send. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having a space to work is a huge thing for us,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just died and gone to heaven.â&#x20AC;? Weatherhead works in oils, and has set up an easel in a cor-

ner of the gallery. While some of her paintings capture urban streetscapes and political metaphors, her most colourful and striking work features life on the farm â&#x20AC;&#x201C; particularly Roots and Shoots Farm where she lives and works in Manotick Station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been trying to avoid painting farm life because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little cheesy, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my life,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You paint what you know.â&#x20AC;? Riggs creates multi-media works using found objects and other so-called junk, and also works in clay making whimsical pottery. Hardwick welcomes residents to drop by the studio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highlighting how important it is for artists to have space to show their work,â&#x20AC;? she said. For more information or to book an appointment call Hardwick at 613-692-4511.

Lemony Snicket pleases Centrepointe crowds Denis Armstrong Metro

Arts - Lemony Snicket, or his fictional handler, author Daniel Handler, read excerpts from Snicket’s latest book, “When Did You See Her Last” at the Nepean Centrepointe Public Library on Nov. 12. In the second of his four-volume “All The Wrong Questions” series, Snicket, a young apprentice in a secret organization, finds himself investigating the case of a kidnapped girl. “He thinks she has been kidnapped but later finds out she has not been kidnapped, nor is she the girl in question,” Handler explains in our email interview. “Further questions, and further kidnappings, ensue.” It isn’t nearly as confusing as it sounds. Handler, 42, never misses an

opportunity to launch into hilarious fantasies, and in “When Did You See Her Last?”, he takes the reader on a wild and rambunctious adventure of camp comedy with arch Victorian-style characters caught in frightening moral dilemmas. “I am Jewish, and adhere to a long cultural tradition of finding deep despair slightly funny, and vice versa. “When Did You See Her Last? is the equivalent of the moment when you realize, in life or in some dark woods echoing with the sounds of vicious dogs, that it is too late to turn back. A prolific artist, Handler’s written 15 novels since 1998 and lots of songs. His 1999 novel “A Series of Unfortunate Events” went on to sell 60-million copies in 39 languages and was turned into a movie star-


Dozens of devoted fans lined the hallways at Ben Franklin Place on Nov. 12 to have their books signed by childrens’ author Lemony Snicket a.k.a Daniel Handler. Handler was on hand as part of the Ottawa Public Library’s annual Teen Author Fest and read from his most recent book “When Did You See Her Last.” ring Jim Carrey. Being famous, even from a safe distance as Lemony Snicket and not as Daniel Handler, he admits, has it’s advantages. “It is very pleasant to turn one’s credit card

over and not have to talk about Jim Carrey.” This being his first trip to the Canadian capital, Handler, who lives in San Francisco with his artist wife and children, is used to venturing off

beaten paths, as long as accompanied by a few creature comforts. “I do enjoy a blustery climate as long as there is strong coffee. Recommendations are most welcome.”

Barrhaven student pledges to help save polar bears Jennifer McIntosh

Arts - Pint-sized polar bear advocate Olivia Clement is calling on her peers to save the animals’ arctic habitat. Olivia, 9, is a student at St. Andrew Catholic School in Barrhaven and has been on a crusade to save the bears since selling $200 worth of clay models in 2012 and donating it to the World Wildlife Fund.

She has since adopted her very own bear, which is fitted with a tracking collar. Olivia is asking children aged three to 16 years old to put brush to canvas in tribute to the arctic. The contest started in October and artworks made on a canvas no bigger than 23 centimeters by 30 cm can be submitted by Nov. 30. Olivia showed her troop of Girl Guides how to make the

clay polar bears on Nov. 13. She hinted that a certain Disney princess would make an appearance at the Christmas party to be held for the winners of the competition. Her mother, Judy, said the girls could pay it forward for the wildlife by making and selling the polar bears or doing simple things like turning out lights they aren’t using. “There’s a lot you can do,” Judy said.

Submissions to the contest can be dropped off at bins at the Nepean Visual Arts Centre in the Nepean Sportsplex, the Ruth Dickenson library branch

on Malvern Drive or at Ross’ Your Independent Grocer on Strandherd Drive. Age categories are from three to five years old, six to

eight, nine to 12 and 13 to 16. Entries should include names, ages and the artist’s address. For more information, visit

Pet Adoptions

Notice of Public Open House Queen Street Renewal: Bronson Avenue to Elgin Street - Environmental Assessment & Design -

Poirot is a seven-year-old, black domestic short hair cat who loves cheek rubs. He was surrendered to the Ottawa Humane Society in July and is now available for adoption. Poirot is a particular cat looking for loving, patient owners who will accept him just the way he is. From his distinguished mustache to his love for big fluffy blankets to lie on, this cat truly is one-of-a-kind. Poirot is looking for a home with older teens and adults who understand that he doesn’t like to be picked up. He would love to be the only feline in your life as he loves to have all the attention and all the toys to himself. Poirot is neutered, microchipped, vet checked and his adoption includes six weeks of pet insurance!


Wednesday, December 11, 2013 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, Jean Pigott Hall The City of Ottawa is undertaking an Environmental Assessment and detailed design study for the proposed Queen Street Renewal project. The project involves a comprehensive streetscape renewal of the Queen Street surface infrastructure from Bronson Avenue to Elgin Street (see map).

Visit the OHS website at to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption. Stop by the Adoption Centre, weekdays 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Microchips: helping return pets to owners when the unthinkable happens Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, ensuring the rapid return of the lost pet. While tags may be lost from time to time, external identification such as these are still important as a quick “visual” means of identifying your pet. The Ottawa Humane Society runs microchip clinics which you can register for by calling 613-7253166 ext. 221 or e-mail microchip@ Upcoming clinics will take place November 24

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Microchipping you pet with the OHS costs $50 ($25 for each additional pet). In the City of Ottawa, cats and dogs must be registered (also known as licensing). Microchips reduce the cost of registration. All proceeds will benefit the animals at the OHS. Animals should be in a carrier or on a leash. Owners should bring vaccination records and one piece of photo ID (for example, driver’s licence).

The study process is following the requirements of a Schedule ‘C’ project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process. At the meeting, information regarding the study process, project objectives, existing conditions, alternative designs, and the preliminary evaluation of the alternatives, will be presented. City Staff and their consultants will be available to answer questions. For further information or to provide comments, contact the City’s project manager or the consulting team project manager at the addresses below.


If your pet goes missing this winter, what are the chances it will find its way home? The Ottawa Humane Society is urging animal owners to take precautions by ensuring that if their dog or cat becomes lost, it has the best possible chance of a safe return — by implanting a grain-sized microchip offering permanent, lifelong identification. Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time.

The anticipated modifications to the street surface will be in support of the Confederation Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) project and will address the anticipated increase in pedestrian volumes resulting from two LRT stations that will be constructed along Queen Street. The project will also be guided by the Vision and Strategic Directions of the City’s associated Downtown Moves: Transforming Ottawa’s Streets initiative, which designates Queen Street as a “Showcase Street”.

Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on November 13, 2013 established its intention to designate the St. Charles Church, 135 Barrette Street, under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value.

Notice of Intention to Designate The City of Ottawa on November 13, 2013 established its intention to designate the Alexander Fleck House, 593 Laurier Avenue West under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value.

Description of Property St. Charles Church, 135 Barrette Street, constructed in 1908, is a large, brick clad wooden Roman Catholic Church. It is located between Beechwood Avenue and Barrette Street in Ottawa’s Vanier neighbourhood.

Description of the Property The Alexander Fleck House is a two-and-a-half storey red brick residential building constructed in 1902 with a later two-storey addition on the western elevation. It is located at 593 Laurier Avenue West, at the corner of Laurier and Bronson Avenues, just outside the western border of Centretown in the City of Ottawa.

Heritage Value The cultural heritage value of St. Charles Church lies in it being a good example of the Québec Neoclassical style, its important role in the Francophone Catholic community and in its contextual value as a landmark in Vanier. Designed by Québec architect Charles Brodeur, St. Charles Church is a good example of the Québec Neoclassical style. Neoclassicism was popular in Canada from 1800 until 1860 but churches continued to be built in this style in Québec and French-speaking Parishes outside of Québec into the 20th century. Typical of the style, St. Charles Church has a smooth, symmetrical façade and a simple, cruciform plan. It features a symmetrical fenestration pattern, and a projecting entrance tower topped by a wooden belfry and flanked by two tower like corner pilasters topped with smaller belfries. St. Charles Church has historical value for its association with the Francophone Catholic community in Ottawa. The congregation was formed in 1908 in response to demands by the local Catholic community who thought that other Francophone churches in Ottawa were too far away from Vanier. In 1912, Father François-Xavier Barrette was appointed Parish Priest and under his guidance, the church quickly became the centre of the Francophone Catholic community in Vanier. In 1926, Barrette and a small group of civil servants formed the Order of Jacques Cartier, an all male secret society intended to protect and promote Francophone Catholic values. It grew rapidly in the first half of the 20th century and is credited with the development of many Francophone organizations including Club Richelieu International, a service club that is still active today. The Order of Jacques Cartier was dissolved in 1965, as a result of the societal changes prompted by the Quiet Revolution. The location of St. Charles Church along the curve of Beechwood Avenue and its tower topped with a blue neon cross make it a prominent local landmark. It has contextual value as it contributes to the distinctive French Canadian identity in the Vanier community.

Heritage Value The Alexander Fleck House’s cultural heritage value is demonstrated through its architectural significance as an excellent example of a Queen Anne Revival style house with a high degree of craftsmanship, its association with Alexander Fleck Jr. and the Fleck family, as well as its character as a community landmark. The house is valuable as an excellent example of the Queen Anne Revival style which was popular from the 1880s to 1910. The house, with its steeply-pitched, cross-gable roof with tall chimneys, projecting bays, stone porch with gabled roof and wood columns, use of multiple materials and its geometric and floriated motifs is typical of the Queen Anne Revival style. Excellent craftsmanship can be seen in the complex roof lines and massing, the intricate brick and stone work, as well as the decorative stained glass. Historical value is found in the building’s association with Alexander Fleck Jr. who owned and operated Alexander Fleck Limited, Vulcan Iron Works on Wellington Street in the late 19th and early 20th century. The general machine shop and foundry which was founded by Fleck’s father contributed to a number of important local projects such as the Cornwall Canal and Ottawa’s street rail system. They held the castings contract for the Canada Atlantic Railway and manufactured machinery for the saw and paper mill industries. Alexander Jr. lived in this house from the time it was constructed in 1902 until his death in 1923. His widow, Maud Fleck, stayed in the house until 1940. The Alexander Fleck house has contextual value as a neighbourhood landmark for its location at the corner of Laurier and Bronson Avenues and its prominent location on a limestone ridge.

Wreath of waxed leaves brought a bit of joy for Mother


here Mother got the idea, no one knew. It certainly wasn’t from Aunt Bertha on the next farm. She was far too practical to do something that took a lot of time and really didn’t amount to a hill of beans when it came to keeping food on the table. No, my sister Audrey said it was probably something she picked up when she lived in New York. Father of course, said he never heard of anything so crazy in his whole life. Fall had settled in and with the blasts of cold winter already closing in around us

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories - although snow yet to come - Mother decided she would do something to keep the season alive as long as she could. The lawn at the side of the house still had plenty of fallen maple leaves on the ground and Mother thought it would give a nice touch to the table at meal times if she could just bring a bit of those

Notice of Completion Foster Stormwater Management Facility Class Environmental Assessment Report Available for Review The City of Ottawa has completed a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study for the Foster Stormwater Management Facility. This study serves to address significant development and urbanization in the South Nepean Urban Area area by constructing a replacement for the existing Foster Stormwater Management Facility. The study follows recommendations from previously completed studies that addressed both Master Servicing and Subwatershed Planning for the area.

He still thought waxing leaves was right up there with trying to nurse geraniums through the winter once they had lost their bloom, which Mother was prone to do, but she paid him no heed. It was on a Saturday, a cold fall day, when she sent Audrey and me out to the yard. We were to bring in only those leaves which were perfectly formed, didn’t have a break in them, or a mark on them and were to be the largest and reddest we could find. We shoved the fallen leaves around the ground with the toes of our boots and ever so carefully gathered those we thought were exactly what Mother had asked for. She had given us a breadbasket to bring them in and she told us over and over

then put onto yet another tea towel where Mother said anyone who touched it would do so at their own peril! Father came in for his supper, glanced at the waxed leaves, shook his head and headed for the wash basin. Not a word was mentioned about the waxed leaves over supper. But Mother rushed us through ‘redding’ up the kitchen that night and had Audrey wipe the red-checkered oilcloth twice to make sure it was good and dry. She then carefully, making a circle around the sugar bowl and spoon holder, laid out the waxed leaves. She overlapped them and Audrey and I thought we had the cleverest mother in all of Renfrew County. With the simple placing of waxed leaves, Mother had turned our plain old table into something grand.

While Audrey and I were out in the yard picking through the leaves, which by that time in the fall were wet and soggy, Mother was in the kitchen melting the wax from the tops of the opened pickle and preserves jars on the Findlay Oval. She had spread out pages of the Renfrew Mercury on the bake table and Audrey and I were told to very, very carefully, lay out the leaves, making sure they were placed gently on a tea towel. Mother, as carefully as she would wipe a baby’s bottom, dabbed the leaves with a tea towel. She brought the pot over to the bake table and, picking up a leaf at a time by its stem, dipped it carefully into the melted wax. The leaf was

St. Mark, St. Francis fight for top hockey spot Emma Jackson

Sports – St. Francis Xavier High School’s boys’ hockey team crushed St. Mark’s bid for a perfect season just two games from the end of regular play on Nov. 14. The two schools – located barely six kilometres from each other in Riverside South and Manotick – are neck and neck at the top of the standings, having each won seven games and lost only one as of Nov. 14. St. Francis put an end to St. Mark’s perfect season that day, winning 5-4 in the Manotick arena after a long battle in which each team consistently answered the other’s goals. “This is a good team,” St. Mark head coach Dave Zivkovic said of the day’s opponents after second period. “There are some games that mean more than others and this is one of

them.” Coaches from both teams said their strength comes from their senior-heavy rosters. “Last year we were a young team, but this year we’ve had lots of Grade 12 guys returning,” said St. Francis head coach Mike Scerbo. “We’re more mature; we have a bit more experience.” Both teams are also stellar scorers. As of Nov. 14 St. Francis had scored 42 goals in eight games while only allowing 17. St. Mark’s defence team only allowed 15 goals while scoring 57 goals against their opponents, including several games with 10 or more goals. The team was set to meet again on Tuesday, Nov. 19. St. Francis will face Notre Dame for the last regular season game on Nov. 22 at 4 p.m. while St. Mark will take on Sir Robert Borden on Nov. 21 at 2 p.m.

two people have the same shaped feet, which is why to truly be effective orthotics should be moulded to fit

and pains can actually be prevented with an orthotic in your shoe. However, before you run out to your nearest drugstore to pick up a pair, you should know custom orthotics will provide much better support and relief than a brand hanging on a shelf. An orthotic acts as a brace to provide support and reduce strain on the muscles of the foot and lower leg. No

orthotics are handmade in their onsite lab to address patients’ individual needs. While store bought orthotics only last about six-months custom orthotics are made from more durable material and can last up to fouryears. If your feet change or concerns about comfort arise during that time, you can have them modified at BioPed instead of having to purchase a completely new pair. You might think that custom orthotics are too expensive. However, you’re more likely to go through several pairs of store-bought orthotics over the same period of time. In the end, you pay approximately the same amount but with custom orthotics you receive greater support and comfort. To discover how custom orthotics can help relieve the aches and pains you suffer from daily, visit BioPed online to find a location in Ottawa near you.

Kurt Browning still has jump in his step Nevil Hunt


Angela Caniniti of the Nepean Skating Club gets some one-onone pointers from former world champion figure skater Kurt Browning at the Nepean Sportsplex on Nov. 13.

Sports - Kurt Browning spins, swirls and then stops on a dime. At 47, the four-time world figure skating champion still cuts a dapper figure on the ice. Browning was at the Nepean Sportsplex on Nov. 13 for a full day of onice instruction hosted by the Nepean Skating Club. During a break, he said he misses some of the jumps he used to complete and listens closely to how his

body feels before hitting the ice. “It’s still a love affair (with skating),” Browning said. “It still feels like we’re dating.” Browning has two sons, ages six and 10, but he’s not sure if they’ll follow in their father’s precise footsteps. “The 10-year-old (Gabriel) likes to teach and the six-year-old (Dillon) might be a skater,” he said. Having Browning in the Sportsplex was an obvious thrill for some of the parents who watched their kids learning from a champion, but the young skaters

know Browning too, both from his work on CBC’s Battle of the Blades and his appearances in ice shows, which continue to this day with Stars on Ice. All of Browning’s greatest performances are also just a mouse click away. “They know me from YouTube,” Browning said of the young skaters on the Sportsplex ice. Recently, Browning was also the focus of an episode of Walk the Walk, a TV series which follows people who have been inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame.
