Local man drowns in Cuba

Inside NEWS

Father trades life for his son’s brandon.gillet@metroland.com

News - Ottawa resident Yue Liu, drowned while vacationing in Cuba with his family on March 19. While playing with his son Connor, 7, in the shallow beach portion of the ocean at a Varadero resort, a powerful wave swept them both into a riptide toward deeper waters. Liu tried to hold his son’s head above water while calling for help. An unidentified Canadian man jumped into the water and was able to retrieve Connor in time to save him from drowning. Other Canadian vacationers as well as lifeguards were then able to pull Liu from the deep waters but efforts to resuscitate him failed; it was too late. He gave his last breath to ensure his son would live, according to family friend Andy Wang. Wang said his friend’s last words to Connor were, “I cannot save you anymore.” Liu leaves behind his wife Fanyan Bu, a nine-year-old

daughter, son Connor, and Fanyan’s elderly parents. Liu’s parents in China have yet to be informed for fear of health complications at hearing the terrible news. COST TO REPATRIATE

The Canadian consular office indicates it will cost upwards of $10,000 to send Liu home to Canada to be buried. With the funeral costs, the Liu family is looking at an estimated $30,000 in expenses. The family now faces difficult financial challenges.“I know he deeply loved his family and worked hard to make sure they were taken care of,” said Wang, who is a member of the Liu family’s Centrepointe community and taught Connor kung-fu at age five. Neighbours of Liu’s wife and the Chinese community in Ottawa have set up a fundraising committee in order to help the family bring Liu home and cover funeral costs. In the last weekend since the incident, the community raised over $20,000 for the family. According to Wang, as of March 26 more than 850 people have donated to the Liu family to help them not only with the funeral costs, but also to help support his widow, the children, and her parents. “These donations exemplify the strength and resolve of the community that surrounds the Liu family as they mourn the loss of a loving father, caring husband, and proud son,” said Wang.

News - Amit Sheer might be the kid who goes on to cure cancer. The Grade 10 student at Colonel By Secondary School recently created a project with small particles targeting cancer cells, which was accepted into the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. He’ll take his research to Los Angeles from

May 11 to 16 to compete against high school students from over 70 countries. Of the 1,600 students competing for prize money in California, 12 are Canadian. His project’s name is a mouthful, titled Personalized Medicine: A Novel Quantum Dot Bioconjugate Targeted Cancer Therapy. In the project, he used tiny particles, called nanoparticles, to attach to a specific, targeted DNA strand. They attach through a chemical reaction to the target. Nanoparticle research can be useful in creating drugs to treat cancer. See STUDENT, page 2

Wang said the family would like to ďŹ nd the courageous Canadian who saved Connor. They are deeply touched by the acts of bravery, kindness, generosity and compassion of the man and others who came to the rescue in Cuba. Liu immigrated to Canada from Beijing, China, and moved to Ottawa after graduating from Dalhousie University, in Halifax, alongside his wife. He worked in IT, without many other interests other than taking care of his family. “Most recently, I sat next to Mr. Liu while he was taking pictures of his daughter’s dance performance at a Chinese new year event,â€? said Wang. Donations can be made by cheque to Fanyan Bu at 1363 Woodroffe Ave, Unit B, box 33074, Ottawa ON, K2C 3Y9. Paypal or email donations can be made at donate2liuyue@ gmail.com.

While the Barrhaven student attends Colonel By for the prep years of the international baccalaureate program offered there, he had to look further to complete his science fair research. He was able to gain access to the science labs and equipment at Carleton University. Amit’s work has been conďŹ ned to the lab, and didn’t feature trials, which would need signiďŹ cant approval. He said most new advances in the medical sciences take about a decade from theoretical research, through trials, to actually being applied on humans.

City puts off studying lit signs

Baird changing ridings under new layout Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

News - The decision to run in the newly created riding of Nepean in the next federal election was a pretty simple equation for Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird. “The calculus was basically that this is the riding that I’ve lived in for my entire life,” the Ottawa West-Nepean MP said in an interview with Nepean-Barrhaven News. “I’ll be 45 in May and I’ve lived my entire life in Bells Corners and by Country Place, so it just made sense to run there.” News reports that Baird was planning to run in the newly created riding of Nepean after being elected three times in his current Ottawa West-Nepean riding turned some heads due to his success in that riding. Baird was first elected in Ottawa West-Nepean in 2006 with 43 per cent of the vote. He increased his hold on the riding in the following two elections, with his popularity growing to 45 per cent in 2008, and then increasing his lead on his runner up to nearly 7,500 votes. Baird said he was honoured to be elected three times in that riding, adding that his focus remains there for the next two years. “My number one priority is to represent them and their values and their interests in the House of Commons.” The move to Nepean for the next federal election is a homecoming more than anything, said Baird. “It’s just a very exciting opportunity,” he said. “I’ve been very, very blessed to get a lot of support from people in Nepean

Current Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is ready to switch ridings in the next federal election, after an Elections Canada redistribution created a new Nepean riding in Ottawa. over the years, and I’m just excited to be able to work together and accomplish as much together.” While media reports have speculated Baird’s move could leave Ottawa West-Nepean open to other parties, Baird said an election in any riding is never certain.“I start off every election like I’m 20 points behind,” he said. “I think in politics nowadays, anyone who treats an election anything like a foregone conclusion is up for a surprise.”Nonetheless, potential candidates for Ottawa West-Nepean have already popped up, including Anita Vandenbeld, who ran against Baird in 2011, and constitutional lawyer Deborah Coyne, both Liberals. The Conservatives’ hold on the riding has only lasted as long as Baird’s tenure, with Liberals winning the riding from 1997 to 2004. Election strategies will have to

change somewhat for Baird due to differences in composition between the Ottawa West-Nepean and Nepean ridings. “Ottawa West-Nepean is really two parts: you’ve got the old city of Ottawa half and the old Nepean half, whereas obviously in this (new riding), it’s entirely suburban,” he said. Not just suburban, but new suburban, with Barrhaven contained in the new Nepean riding. “You’ve got a lot of young families, so being squeezed on taxes is a big issue. Meantime, things like health care and education continue to be big priorities,” said Baird, adding that job creation will be a main concern for those constituents as well. But Baird is no stranger to the rapid growth of Ottawa’s southwest. “When I first was elected in Barrhaven (as an MPP), Barrhaven was only 26,000 people and there was no high school. There wasn’t even a fast food place,” said Baird. “That’s only in ’95.” With new ridings created across Canada, representation in the House of Commons will go from 308 to 338 seats, with Ontario gaining 15 of the newly created ridings. To create the new Nepean riding, the Nepean-Carleton riding (currently represented by Democratic Reform Minister Pierre Poilievre) was split, carving Nepean out, and leaving a much more rural Rideau-Carleton riding.

News - A “proliferation” of illuminated digital signs in business windows doesn’t deserve to be studied – yet. Kitchissippi Coun. Katherine Hobbs suggested the city study LED signs, which chief building official Arlene Gregoire said can be bought for $200. But on March 26, the planning committee decided to refer the issue to the next term of council, to be considered as part of council’s priorities for the four years following the election of a new council on Oct. 27. Gregoire agreed with Hobbs that the issue could merit review. “Unless we have rules before this proliferation occurs, you’re stuck with non-conforming rights,” Gregoire said. She agreed there was a need to study the signs – not necessarily to create another layer of bureaucracy or a permit process or fee, but to look at what restrictions might be put in place to prevent the signs from bothering neighbours. Hobbs said a resident in the Holland Avenue area of her ward complained to her office about a lit sign, which prompted the councillor’s interest in the issue.

“When you get into urban areas, people are living right across from businesses,” Hobbs said. “When you look at a proliferation, it can lead to a problem.” She suggested a study could lead to a recommendation such as limiting the hours the signs can be illuminated. Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder said the issue isn’t a priority. “We’re reacting to not a huge outcry from anyone,” she said. “It looks like another layer of bureaucracy that no one in the city wants.” Alex Lewis, executive director of the Bells Corners Business Improvement Area, agreed. He told the committee he visited the business that prompted the complaint – a shwarma restaurant – and found the sign is on a timer that goes off at 10 p.m. “In this instance, it’s like killing a flea with a shotgun,” he said. “We have enough things working against small businesses in Ottawa.” College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who represents Bells Corners, said it’s important for the city to make a distinction between advertising signs and works of art. Gregoire said the city’s policies are clear when it comes to distinguishing a sign from a work of art – if the sign or mural includes a product or service being advertised, it’s not art.

Arts - The Nepean Fine Arts League’s annual spring gallery celebrated both local artists and the club’s 50 years of history. This year’s spring gallery included 38 artists, with pieces ranging from acrylic, oil and watercolour to photography and mixed media. The pieces were put on display at the Ukrainian Banquet Hall on Byron Avenue from March 21 to 23, with Mayor Jim Watson and Coun. Mark Taylor opening the gallery at the vernissage on the opening day. The league’s mission since its inception in 1964 has been to provide its members with opportunities to grow and display their work, as well as connect the community with its own talented artists. This year’s spring gallery did just that, said the league’s president, Soraya Silvestri. Whereas perusing a professional art gallery can be a little intimidating, the league’s shows focus on connecting artists with the community,

Watson presented the league with a framed certificate in honour of its 50 years, said Silvestri “It was wonderful to have them there,� she said, who added that having them there underlined the significance of the club’s history in Ottawa. Silvestri said she was very happy with the quality of the work of all participating artists. While the gallery emphasized the club’s history, its future is looking bright as well, with young artists becoming members and helping the group to make the move online. “They’ve really updated the club,� said Silvestri, adding Twitter and Facebook to the club’s online presence. Silvestri has been president of the club since last year, and said she feels privileged to oversee events during its 50th anniversary.

Artists are all there standing beside their work, ready and willing to talk ... so when people come in and start chit chatting, they understand the process of how this work came about.� This year’s spring gallery included a judging portion, with three winners chosen based on the body of work they brought to the gallery. The first place winner this year was Catherine Schissel, with Patricia Gordon taking second place, and third going to Diane Groulx. Schissel’s landscape work, made with oils, acrylic and pastels, are inspired by various nature scenes across Canada.

Breastfeeding: Supporting Moms, Supporting Babies The Ottawa Breastfeeding Buddies program pairs new mothers with volunteers who have breastfed their children for six months or longer. The program boasts 58 volunteer buddies who speak 17 languages and were paired up with close to 120 moms in 2013. From modest beginnings of ďŹ ve volunteers in 2005, to 58 today is due in large part to a simple premise: mothers want to give back.

For more information about breastfeeding visit ottawa.ca/breastfeeding.

To connect with a public health nurse call 613-580-6744 (TTY: 613-580-9656) or email healthsante@ottawa.ca To learn more about what public health does for you, take a look at our 2013 Annual Report on ottawa.ca

Many mothers appreciate the technical breastfeeding information as well as the emotional support they receive from speaking with someone who has been through the same experience. Are you interested in becoming a breastfeeding buddy volunteer or do you want to be partnered with a Breastfeeding Buddy? Contact OttBreastfeedingBuddies@ottawa.ca or call 613-580-6744 extension 23932. The World Health Organization, the Canadian Paediatric Society and Health Canada recommend exclusive breastfeeding up to six months of age, with continued breastfeeding for up to two years and beyond.

Avoiding the red tape

A

mong the things a city should try to avoid is discouraging business growth. Businesses pay taxes and businesses employ residents, who in turn pay taxes. Along with development fees, taxes are the primary way cities collect money to pay for roads, arenas, transit and the like, so actively discouraging the growth of business in a city is like the shooting of one’s own foot. Last week, a couple of issues that have the potential to affect how business is done in Ottawa came before city council, and in both cases prudent decisions were made. Members of city council voted to reduce the fee paid by restaurant and bar owners to establish sidewalk patios and decided to wait and have further study conducted on the way digital signs are used at businesses across the city. The patio decision, while only affecting the 2014 season, will see the fee paid by businesses wishing to establish a patio that encroaches on city sidewalks reduced by 10 per cent to $1.23 per square metre. In light of what business owners pay in other cities for the same privilege – only as much as $0.57 per square metre in Toronto, for example – it appears reasonable that this could

be done to see how business owners react. The city intends to study the results ahead of the 2015 season and judge the effect. The decision to look further at digital signs, which are displayed inside an exterior window for advertising purposes, is also prudent. The city currently has little in the way of data on how widespread these relatively inexpensive devices are or how they might affect those living nearby, making further study a reasonable course of action. These two issues are good examples of how the city can make life difficult for business, or not, as the case now. In good weather, patios draw restaurant goers to these vital small businesses. Making it easier for owners to leverage the draw of patios keeps them in business, keeps tax dollars flowing to the city and keeps workers employed. While it’s debatable how effective indoor digital signs are for businesses that choose to use them, they’re marginally distracting and spending too much time and effort figuring out how to referee them smacks of wasteful over-management on the part of the city. If digital signs need oversight, why not posters? Why not mannequins? It could easily become a slippery slope ending in a pit of red tape.

T

he reconstituted Frank magazine has produced a re-election poster for Jim Watson. Under the headline “Watsonmania,� the satirical rag shows a photograph of a sleepy looking mayor saying: “Let me finish the job ... I still see a couple of people awake in the back!� That would be a common criticism: a boring mayor for a boring city. There is an upside as well, expressed in a number of different ways by a number of different people, but all meaning essentially the same thing: “At least he isn’t Rob Ford.� This is because in politics, boring means no scandals, no gaffes, no feuds with council members, no blowups with the media, no controversy, no embarrassment to the city. Jim Watson has that going for him and it’s no small accomplishment, actually. Many are the politicians who thought they were being cautious and responsible and wound up with a reputation for anything but. Something can always trip you up – a careless word you thought was off-the-record, a rogue staffer, an expense account that wasn’t properly scrutinized, a relative who wasn’t properly scrutinized, an unguarded moment in range of somebody’s iPhone camera. It is not easy to be boring, in other words.

It is an interesting comment on our times that Watson is considered likely to be reelected simply for not being trouble-prone, just for not being Rob Ford. Little is expected of politicians these days. This is not to disparage the mayor’s abilities or his record, only to say that imagination and vision, which used to count for a lot, count for much less. We seem to want capable managers who won’t cost us a lot of extra tax dollars, who won’t get us into trouble.

Big things are not going to get done under that kind of leadership and many of us seem quite content with that. Because big things sometimes lead to big trouble -- as witness, say, Montreal’s Olympic venture in the 1970s. It would be interesting to see a challenge to Watson by a politician with big things on his or her mind. Great cities become great by taking risks, by thinking big. To take one example, Ottawa could have a great waterfront, like many North American cities, if someone thought big and didn’t hide behind the NCC. To take a less thrilling example, Ottawa will need huge expenditures on infrastructure to keep our roads and bridges and water systems from outliving their usefulness. Someone has to push that. We know from experience that it is politically expedient to postpone such expenditures. We know from experience – think of Montreal again – that postponement can lead to tragedy. So it would be good to hear a big idea from Jim Watson, or from one of his competitors, if only to have a more interesting discussion than we usually have around election time. Watson takes some of the credit for Lansdowne Park redevelopment and light rail, which some might call big ideas. But

Lansdowne Park is looking less and less innovative and light rail is just half of a big idea; it doesn’t come close to meeting the city’s urgent transit needs. Creating a proper transit system would be a big idea that would really help make Ottawa a great city. But it would cost money and probably necessitate making rules that make life more complicated and/or expensive for drivers. Other cities have taken on that challenge, but it is politically risky to be sure. There must be dozens of big ideas out there than would make this a better city. It would be nice to hear some of them.

Does food guide promote weight gain? BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse that a portion size of meat should be about the size of a deck of cards? A portion of whole grains should be about the size of your ďŹ st. Yet how many of us are consuming multiple burgers at a barbecue or chowing down on full plates of spaghetti? Freedhoff further argues that portion sizes used to determine calories by Health Canada are based on old data and no longer reect the reality. A slice of bread, for example, is considered to be a portion of grains within the food guide, and to represent 65 calories. Most commercial loaves these days contain nearly double that, says Freedhoff, about 120 calories per slice. He also notes that sugary cereals count as a grain serving, which is wrong on a number of levels. And even as countries like Brazil are feted for novel new national guidelines around healthy eating that encourage consumption of fresh and local produce, Canada is stuck in the past, suggests Freedhoff. Natural fruit juice, for example, is listed as a valid serving in the

fruit and vegetables category of the Canada Food Guide, yet science tells us that fruit juice offers a sugar surge in our bodies comparable to a serving of Coca Cola. And unlike Brazil’s new food policy, which recom-

and overweight problem in the Western world, including Canada. We also have increasingly “busy� lives, which makes slow-cooking, growing our own food and even label reading cumbersome. The food guide is all we’ve got as a high-level, broad-reaching document to guide us in our eating habits. If Freedhoff is right and it’s contributing to overweight and obesity, rather than hindering it, it may be time for a revamp. The contributing factors to overweight and obesity are obviously complex. My personal theory is that the urban, indoor lifestyle and sedentary

work many of us do are among the biggest contributing factors. But we are also a society that, frankly, eats too much – particularly compared to our physical output – and we are eating too much of the wrong things. Surely, our national food guide should take that into account and, at minimum, give us a more optimum prescription for eating right.

A

debate at the University of Ottawa in recent months has put into question the validity of Canada’s Food Guide. Designed to promote healthy eating with prescriptive doses from the various food groups, the colourful rainbow is meant to help us make the right choices when it comes to food. “Does Canada’s Food Guide promote weight gain?â€? That was the name of the debate and the question put forward by Dr. Yoni Freedhoff, director of the Bariatric Medical Institute. His opponent was Dr. Hasan Hutchinson, directorgeneral of the OfďŹ ce of Nutrition Policy and Promotion at Health Canada. Freedhoff, an avid blogger and pundit on the overweight and obesity issues, makes a number of valid arguments against the food guide. He argues that if people eat the portions recommended in the guide, for example, they will gain weight. One of the main problems with the current food guide, argues Freedhoff, is that it’s based on portions, but nobody knows what a portion size looks like anymore. Over time, our plates have become bigger and our notion of portion size has become skewed as a result. The increased trend of eating in restaurants makes this problem more pronounced. Did you know, for example,

Homan rink scores silver at world championship Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

E SOL D SIGNS GN ESI ND EVE

Sports - There was a silver lining for the Rachel Homan rink’s world championship competition finish. The rink, composed of Homan, Emma Miskew, Alison Kreviazuk and Lisa Weagle, won the silver medal at the Ford Women’s World Curling Championship, held in St. John, N.B. from March 15 to 23. They lost to the Swiss team 9-5 in the final match up, after beating Switzerland earlier in the tournament. “The disappointing part was not bringing back gold for Canada, obviously,” said Homan in a press release. “But I’m really proud of the run we had all week. Just disappointed that we didn’t finish off that last game.” Despite the loss, the team still took home a silver medal, and Kreviazuk was awarded the France Brodie Award for fair play and sportsmanship, an award voted on by the players at the tournament.

City cuts patio fees for 2014

Connected to your community

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The snow shows no signs of melting, but the city is already looking forward to patio season. Recognizing the socio-economic benefits of sidewalk restaurant patios, the city’s planning committee approved a reduction in the fees charged for patios on March 25.

For the 2014 season only, the patio encroachment fee will be $1.23 per square metre per day – a 10 per cent reduction. That temporary decrease will give city staff time to conduct a broader review of sidewalk patio policies and fees. Ottawa’s current patio fees of $1.37 per square metre per day are higher than other cities. Patio fees in Toronto range between $0.14 to $0.57

per square metre per day. According to a staff report, demand for sidewalk patios in downtown Ottawa is “inelastic� and therefore the demand for new patios isn’t likely to increase if the fees are reduced. Since there were more new patios than expected last year – partially due to a pilot project to add patios on Elgin Street – reducing the patio fees

for one year won’t change the $570,000 budget for the program, the report states. The broader review of the sidewalk encroachment bylaw will be reported to planning committee in time for the 2015 patio season. In recent years, the city has expanded patio opportunities in other ways. Fees were cut in half for Preston Street for two years at the request of

the local merchants association in hopes of spurring more restaurants to add more patios to the dining hotbed of Little Italy, however, only one new patio was established during that time. Six Elgin Street establishments were given approval to try out patios on a narrower sidewalk for two years. That pilot project is ongoing for another summer.

Author launches book about amazing women jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Arts - Emily-Jane Hills Orford recently launched a book celebrating the accomplishments of amazing women throughout history. Orford, a prolific writer and Barrhaven native who recently moved to North Gower, has written 16 books. Her first book was The Creative Spirit: Stories of the 20th Century, grew out of research she was doing into her family tree. Hills Orford has a background in Canada music and art history. She teaches piano to private students and creative writing to students at Osgoode and Castor Valley public schools. “I think it’s nice to volunteer at the rural schools because they don’t often have professionals coming in from the city,” she said. Hills Orford’s latest book, entitled Amazingly Extra-Or-

dinary Women, made its debut at the North Gower branch of the Ottawa Public Library on March 20. It was published in January. It’s a collection of stories about women from across the centuries. “I thought about women as pioneers – the broader definition of leaders in their fields,” Hills-Orford said. Some of the inspiration came through unrelated searches on other topics. OFF ON TANGETNTS

“That’s the beauty of the Internet; you can go off into tangets,” she said. One of the women she talked about was Marie Curie, the Polish physicist and chemist who did ground breaking research on radioactivity. In a section on women as teachers, Hills Orford told the story of her mother, who was a teacher and that of a Chinese woman whose parents blinded

her as a child to make more money for the family as a beggar. “She went on to be rescued and taught blind children,” Hills Orford said. In a section about amazing women and healthcare, Hills Orford told the story of her mother-in-law, who served as a nurse in the Second World War. “She initially went overseas over Christmas and they used to bring the hospital’s one piano around to the different wards on a rickety old cart to spread cheer,” Hills Orford said. It’s that kind of story that adds a personal touch to the book, she said. It’s also one of the reasons Hills Orford decided to self publish a few years ago. “One of the rejection letters I got from a publishing company said they only publish biographies on famous people,” she said. “I understand marketing, but there needs to be a place for these untold stories.”

Kaba hurdles McKoy to record tyler.follett@metroland.com

Sports - Sekou Kaba has capped off a strong season in the best way possible: winning a gold medal in the 60-metre hurdles at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championships in Edmonton on March 7. It was the second CIS gold medal at the event for the University of Ottawa Gee-Gee, having also won in 2012. The Gee-Gees were well represented at the CIS nationals, sending eight athletes. Winning a second gold wasn’t enough for the talented Kaba, who also broke the CIS record of 7.83 seconds with his time of 7.79. The previous record holder? Mark McKoy, who went on to become the 1992 gold medalist at the Barcelona Summer Olympics in the

There’s plenty more to come, I just want to keep working hard and doing my best. SEKOU KABA

110m hurdles. In other words, pretty elite company to find yourself in. “I knew I could do it, but I think it sends a message to myself and my supporters and competitors,” said Kaba. Kaba, who only moved to Canada in 2007, admits he wasn’t familiar with McKoy until after breaking his record. He has since watched many videos of his running and examined his running style, happy to learn anything he can of his adopted homeland. The importance of the record is not lost on him. “Anytime you can be mentioned in a sentence with a guy like Mark McKoy is great,” he said. Kaba has already experienced the highs of success and the lows of injury. The 2012 CIS season saw him go undefeat-

ed in indoor events, culminating in the gold medal. “2012 was a great ride, I was just trying to do my best while at the same time enjoying it,” said Kaba. His 2013 season, however, was cut short due to hamstring injuries. He has been healthy in his current season, and competed in the provincials in February, coming in second place. It was a disappointing result for him, but it ended up being a blessing in disguise as it motivated him at the nationals where he reclaimed his crown as Canadian champion. “Though I got beat at provincials, I think I needed that,” said Kaba. The 60m and 110m hurdles are the two events Kaba competes in, with the former ran indoors and the latter outdoors. Though he is the CIS record holder in 60m, 110m is Kaba’s specialty with him even saying he “struggles” at the 60m. “I finish strong, that’s always been my big strength so I definitely prefer 110m,” he said. He has trained with the Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club since coming to Canada from the United States in 2007, and it’s been a successful partnership. Kaba was born in Guinea, moving to the U.S. when he was 14. “They’re absolutely great, they’ve been home to me since I stepped foot on Canadian soil,” said Kaba happily. Looking ahead, Kaba is as motivated as ever to not only make it as a professional track star, but excel. “There’s plenty more to come, I just want to keep working hard and doing my best,” he said. The Olympics in Rio do Janiero, Brazil, in 2016 and qualification is a realistic goal. Kaba almost qualified for the 2012 Olympics, gaining citizenship just in time for the trials. The Commonwealth Games are in August this year in Glasgow, Scotland, and Kaba has every intention of showing what he’s made of on the world stage. “I’m absolutely ready, the doors are wide open. I just need to keep working.”

Sekou Kaba, right, clears the final hurdle in the finals of the 60m. It was a record-setting run for Kaba, who broke the CIS mark previously held by 1992 Summer Olympic Gold medalist Mark McKoy.

Transportation authority eyes changes to school bell times Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority is proposing to make bell time changes for all Ottawa-area schools starting in September 2015. The moves would affect both the public and Catholic school boards and would involve changes to walking zones for certain schools. As a result, the authority will launch a number of public consultations across the city to present the changes to parents and to hear concerns starting on April 2. According to the general manger for the authority, Vicky Kyriaco, the changes are aimed at making the organization more efďŹ cient. The authority was estab-

lished in 2007 in response to the Ministry of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reform on transportation, which called on school boards across the province to develop partnerships and combine transportation departments. According to the authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaws, Kyriaco said, it can make bell time changes at schools of up to 10 minutes before needing to seek approval with the respective board. Since these changes are greater than 10 minutes, the authority will seek a decision from both school boards in December 2014. The route changes will allow for one bus to take students to three different schools, saving the boards an estimated $3.3 million. These cost-savings, Kyriaco said, are based on what the

authority believes is the most efďŹ cient system for buses and could change depending on feedback received at the consultations. According to the public school board, as many as 38,000 to 40,000 students require daily transportation to and from school. The walking distance is currently 800 metres for kindergarten children and 1.6 kilometres for grades 1 to 8. Grades 9 through 12 must walk if a student lives within 3.2 km of their school. Parents are encouraged to view the maps, and depending on the routes, point out concerns but there is little ďŹ&#x201A;exibility for changes to be made. The consultations, which begin in April, will present speciďŹ c plans to speciďŹ c neighbour-

hood school zones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most important message is that it is not written in stone, we do want to hear from the school communities,â&#x20AC;? Kyriaco said. The changes follow a study of existing routes conducted by an outside ďŹ rm that evaluated and highlighted potential safety hazards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There would be little which would surprise us there,â&#x20AC;? Kyriaco said. The comments, she said, would still be welcome, because depending on the concern, any highlighted hazards could possibly be mitigated, adding the authority would work with the city to make certain street intersections more pedestrian-friendly. Currently the proposed bell time changes and new walk zones are available to view at ottawaschoolbus.ca. An online survey is also available on the website for parents to ďŹ ll out.

Ottawa & Area - Divorce is rarely easy and often means a lot of difficult decisions. One of the most important decisions is what to do about the house. In the midst of the heavy emotional and financial turmoil, what you need most is some non-emotional, straightforward, specific information and answers. Once you know how a divorce affects your home, your mortgage and taxes, critical decisions are easier. Neutral, third party information can help you make logical, rather than emotional, decisions. Probably the first decision is whether you want to continue living in the house. Will the familiar surroundings bring you comfort and emotional security, or unpleasant memories? Do you want to minimize change by staying where you are, or sell your home and move to a new place that offers a new start? Only you can answer those questions, but there will almost certainly be some financial

formation/meetings. Kyriaco said regardless of a particular meeting date, parents can attend any meeting in the city to send in comments. The authority will also post the presentation information online.

CITY OF OTTAWA CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT COMBINED SEWAGE STORAGE TUNNEL NOTICE OF FILING OF ADDENDUM

Donations needed for children: UNICEF News - UNICEF has appealed for almost US$2.2 billion to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance in 2014 to 85 million people, including 59 million children, who face conflict, natural disasters and other complex emergencies in 50 countries. UNICEF’s Humanitarian Action for Children 2014 appeal highlights the daily challenges faced by children in humanitarian crises. “In the Central African Republic, 2.3 million children need protection,” said David Morley, UNICEF Canada’s president and CEO. “Children are directly targeted in violent attacks, recruited into armed groups, subjected to sexual violence or decapitated. These children are counting on us – all of us. “Partnering with national

governments, civil society, and humanitarian agencies, we must do all we can to provide life-saving support to the children who need us most, in the most inaccessible of places.” For Syria and the subregion, UNICEF is appealing for US$835 million to deliver life-saving assistance including immunization, water and sanitation, education, and protection; and to support the social cohesion and peace-building skills needed to build a more sustainable future. Funds raised by the appeal will also help UNICEF in its work with partners to strengthen communities’ abilities to cope with future conflict or natural disaster shocks, by reinforcing national preparedness systems and developing resilience among children and communities.

In February 2013, the City of Ottawa completed a ‘Schedule C’ Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to develop a preferred solution and functional design for additional storage of combined sewage in the ultimate combined sewer area of Ottawa. In 2013, Combined Sewage Storage Tunnel (CSST) Environmental Study Report (ESR) was completed. The preferred design of the CSST consists of an east-west tunnel (EWT) through the downtown core from LeBreton Flats to New Edinburgh Park and a north-south tunnel (NST) along Kent Street from Catherine Street to the existing outfall north of Wellington Street. The 2013 ESR concluded that the preferred design for the NST would include a construction staging area in St. Laurent Square. After consultation took place during preliminary design of the CSST in 2014, it was determined that the CSST could be extended south to Chamberlain Street for an alternative construction staging area for the NST. The resulting change in the preferred construction staging area requires additional property. An addendum is required to evaluate the potential environmental implications.

Local MPP seeks opinions on provincial budget Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Resident concerns about the provincial budget -- expected to be tabled at Queen’s Park this month -- are close to home, said NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod. MacLeod held a series of public consultations in Manotick, Greely, Osgoode and Bells Corners on March 23 to suss out what residents would like to see in the upcoming budget. “Our past two bills we have had to go to the bank and pay $800 to hydro,” said Manotick resident Lyn Presley, whose husband Dave recently underwent a kidney transplant.

The couple, who attended the consultation at the Manotick Legion, said they’d like to see the province scrap the Green Energy Act and get rising rates under control. Dave has had several appointments following his transplant surgery last spring. He said paying hospital parking fees, gas and his electricity bill have put a lot of financial pressure on the family. “We both only have our government pension,” he said. Jane Wilson, a North Gower resident and president of Wind Concerns Ontario, said she will continue to fight wind mills. She mentioned the impact the 86 wind turbines has had on the look of Wolfe Island – near

Kingston and said other communities will be next if the Green Energy Act isn’t scrapped. “It’s not just about property value loss,” she said, adding that people whose homes are close to wind turbines are seeing a 20 to 58 per cent reduction in property values. “It’s about health concerns too. Those things are loud and they are preventing people from being able to sleep. Anyone with small children can tell you the impact of losing sleep.” MacLeod also polled residents about the planned closure of 14 beds at Winchester District Memorial Hospital and the closure of the Kemptville Campus of the University of Guelph.

The University of Guelph announced the closure of the agricultural programs at their Alfred and Kemptville campuses earlier this month. The closure was due to stalled enrollment and rising costs. KEMPTVILLE COLLEGE

John Newman, vice-president of the Kemptville college foundation, said declining enrollments has been a problem since the 1990s. “The University of Guelph finally had to call ‘uncle,’” he said. Despite the closure, Newman said there is a coalition of interested parties, which includes the mayor of North Grenville, the college founda-

tion and people from the Algonquin College community to see if some programs can be taught out of the Kemptville campus. “We hope to get the minister of Training, Colleges and Universities involved too,” he said. MacLeod handed out a survey to residents that attended her public consultations and said she would be taking their responses with her to Queen’s Park. Although, MacLeod said she has no intention of voting for a Liberal budget. “They’re going to accuse me of not having read it (the budget). But I have never supported a Liberal budget and I don’t intend to start now,” MacLeod said.

Algonquin College spreads the net tyler.follett@metroland.com

News - Rick Mercer visited Algonquin College for a day to celebrate students raising $10,000 to win the Spread the Net challenge for a second straight year. The challenge pits schools against one another to raise funds for and provide African families with insect-proof beds to combat malaria. Mercer, one of the charitable organization’s founders, treats the school that raises the most money to a visit, and films segments of his CBC show The Mercer Report on campus. “There is no school in the country that has as much school spirit as Algonquin,” said Mercer to a packed house at the student commons building. This year the event was entirely student-led as opposed to last year’s faculty-led team

headed by Lisa Roots, professor in the police foundations program. “It was definitely a little different this year not being faculty-run,” said Riley Jones, chairman of the Spread the Net committee. “They were still there to assist us, but they wanted students to learn from the experience and I think we accomplished that.” With the cost of each net $10, students will be sending 1,000 nets to Africa. Since its foundation, the organization has donated more than 500,000 nets. “Our goal was to get Mercer to come back,” said Trevor Anders, involved with events planning for the committee. “It goes towards a good cause, and every little penny helps.” Anders helped out with the challenge last year, before taking the next step and joining the committee this year. One of the challenges this

year was the loss of some key members of the previous year’s committee to graduation. A number of fresh faces helped fill the void, while the veterans used their successful experience from last year to their advantage. “It was excellent, more students came out this year than last year,” said Vanessa Manning, a member of the committee. “Last year was just police foundations students, this year was more of student dynamic, which is great because everyone can take part.” Organizers and volunteers distributed some of the insecticide-treated nets to let students see what their efforts went towards. “We all used our talents, everyone in different programs used what resources they had from that program to make this world,” said Jones. “The faculty motivated us, we took what we learned last year and used it this year to make it work.”

Rick Mercer is surrounded by volunteers at Algonquin College as he celebrates the school winning the Spread the Net student challenge. The school raised $10,000 to send 1,000 insecticidetreated nets to Africa to fight malaria. TYLER FOLLETT/METROLAND

Woman refused ‘safe stop’ on nighttime bus OC Transpo investigating after driver laughed at rider who asked to use safety program laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - OC Transpo is investigating after a bus driver laughed at a passenger and refused to let her off at a “safe stop.” Passengers are supposed to be able to ask bus drivers to let them off at a spot other than a bus stop after 7 p.m. OC Transpo began promoting the program in December after a number of highly-publicized sexual assaults at transit stations. But when Carleton University student Sarah Douglas asked to disembark at Rideau and Cobourg streets around 9 p.m. on Sunday evening, the bus operator “kind of laughed and then sighed.” “She said if everyone asked for it, she would have to let people off all over the route and that she’d have to make exceptions for everyone if they asked,” Douglas said. When a surprised Douglas responded that it was after 7 p.m., when the service kicks in, the bus operator said the program is “only for people in danger.” “She asked me if I was in danger and I said, ‘Well, actually, yes, my neighbourhood is dangerous. It’s nice, but it’s not the greatest neighbourhood,” Douglas said. Less than two weeks earlier, police charged a 27-year-old man with sexual assault after a woman was assaulted blocks away, at Wilbrod and Chapel streets. When the driver retorted with “If you think so,” Douglas said she was taking note of the bus number to report the incident. She got off the bus at the regular stop, about 250 metres away from the intersection near where she asked to be let off. “I was in shock,” Douglas said. “This is a program and they have announcements on the bus that you hear sometimes … You don’t have to give justifications for why you want to get off the bus.” Douglas said she was disappointed the bus driver who refused to let her use a safe stop was a woman. “As a woman, you kind of empathize with other women. You know the extra precautions we take before we head out at night. You know – having your cell phone in one hand and your car keys in the other, being prepared to run.” The interaction doesn’t meet OC Transpo’s customer service expectations, David Pepper, OC Transpo’s manager of business and operational services, wrote in an email. “Upon receipt of this customer’s complaint, OC Transpo immediately began investigating the concerns raised by the customer in order to take the necessary corrective action(s),” Pepper wrote. It’s the 16th complaint OC Transpo has received since a promotional push for safety initiatives began in December. It’s also not the first complaint

sent to Hollaback Ottawa. The group has been working to build awareness that street harassment is an issue and Hollaback organizer Julie Lalonde said one person is too many to be treated like Douglas was. “It shows an ignorance of women’s perceptions of safety,” Lalonde said. While the top brass at OC Transpo have recently shown a willingness to talk to Hollaback about safety initiatives, Lalonde wondered if that message was trickling down to bus drivers. Transit commission chairwoman Coun. Diane Deans insisted the “culture of safety” she and OC Transpo general manager John Manconi promote is having an impact on the

frontline. “I think we’re setting the tone,” she said. Douglas said it’s the first time she’s had an issue using the safe stop program, which she has taken advantage of about six or seven times since January. While some drivers have told her it’s not safe to let her off at the exact spot she asked for because of traffic, they have always let her off as close as possible. Last week, OC Transpo released survey results showing that 49 per cent of women said they felt “safe and secure” waiting for a bus late at night. OC Transpo is currently looking at different ways to improve safety, OC Transpo general manager John Manconi told the transit commission on March 19. Ideas include investigating the possibly of solar panel roofs on bus stop shelters to provide lighting after

Red Poppy Gallery hosts former teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paintings Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Arts - The shoe is on the other foot for a retired John McCrae Secondary School teacher whose art is on display at the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Red Poppy Gallery. Artist and former visual arts teacher Margaret Grant has her watercolour and oil paintings featured in a solo exhibit at the gallery. The exhibit, entitled Breathing Space, continues until May 8. Grantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art focuses on landscapes, gardens, flora and figures inspired by her time spent in Prince Edward Island, as well as the Ottawa Valley and rural Ontario.â&#x20AC;&#x153;Living for several years in P.E.I. influenced my appreciation for the special quality of rural maritime life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the harmony of ocean, sky and fields and the easy pace of life,â&#x20AC;? she says in her artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement. Her paintings are meant to provide an escape,

she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each painting has a story, a feeling, a living force which makes it a unique creation and each on strives to find the breathing space both artist and viewer need to survive.â&#x20AC;? Grant has exhibited works in group shows before, including at the Atrium Gallery in Centrepointe and the Ottawa Little Theatre. After teaching commercial and fine art at the secondary school level for the public school board for years, most recently at John McCrae, Grant has retired to pursue painting full time. The Red Poppy Gallery can be accessed through either John McCrae school or the Walter Baker Centre at 100 Malvern Dr.

BRANDON GILLET /METROLAND

Algonquin College president Kent MacDonald announces the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new e-textbook initiative, which will be available to full-time students.

College takes next step in digital learning age Brandon Gillet brandon.gillet@metroland.com

News - The ďŹ rst step toward a digitized form of education was online course material and mobile learning programs. Now comes the e-textbook initiative. Algonquin College president Kent MacDonald announced the launch of the e-textbook plan on March 24, after months of testing and feedback from student and faculty. By September 2014, the program will deliver about 40,000 e-resources to more than 9,000 full time students. It will then expand further to include all students by 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have worked for many years to become a digital college through the creation of mobile learning programs and spaces,â&#x20AC;? said MacDonald. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By offering robust mobile support and wireless Internet everywhere on campus, and in our expansion of our online and hybrid offerings, e-textbooks

are the next phase.â&#x20AC;? The college tested two ways of delivering e-texts: online through a web browser and from the new VitalSource platform. As the browser option allows only online viewing, students opted for VitalSource. The interactive program allows students to manipulate text, highlight sections, transfer notes and annotated text to Word, and colour-coding to help indicate test material or areas for personal improvement. The system means students can access their textbooks from any mobile device both on and ofďŹ&#x201A;ine. Some texts like workbooks and manuals proved ineffective in electronic format but these will be available in print and will be covered by the etext ancillary fee which is part of full-time programs.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about choice,â&#x20AC;? said Glenn MacDougall, the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of learning and teaching services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to ensure that every student has access to the required course resources. E-textbooks represent a major step forward in support for our students.â&#x20AC;? The electronic textbook program started in January 2013 with a pilot phase which provided 2,300 text books to about 700 students in six programs. Textbook publishers Wiley, Pearson, McGraw-Hill, and Nelson provided the etexts for free in exchange for feedback on the usability of the digital books. The goal for September 2014 will be to provide students the required e-textbooks at 50 per cent of the cost of print. These fees will be factored into an ancillary fee on studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tuition costs.

News - The Canadian Cancer Society doled out $1.7 million to three local researchers in a bid to help improve the quality of life for cancer patients. Martin Kabat, CEO of the society, announced the funding at the R.A. Centre on March 25. Kabat said the survivorship rate of cancer patients has steadily risen from 28 per cent in the 1960s to 68 per cent in present day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the society began funding research in the 1950s some very important discoveries started to take place,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding Dr. Robert Nobleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discovery of vinblastine was one of the ďŹ rst major advances in chemotherapy, originating in Canada in 1959. Dr. John Bell, a scientist with the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and University of Ottawa professor, was the largest funding recipient. The $1.2-million, ďŹ ve-year, impact grant was given to Bell and his research team for the development of cancer-ďŹ ghting viruses to target pancreatic cancer. Bell said the society also funds his work through the NCIC Clinical Trials groups in Ottawa, Toronto and Hamilton, Ont. The clinical trials are part a co-operative oncology group which carries out clinical trials in cancer therapy, supportive care and prevention across Canada and internationally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am honoured to receive this funding,â&#x20AC;? Bell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife and daughter often knock on doors to fundraise for the society so I know how hard the dollars are to come by.â&#x20AC;? Kabat said one of the reasons the society chose to fund the project is because the society wants a renewed focus on the under-funded and

harder-to-ďŹ ght cancers such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal cancers. Dr. Andrew Makrigiannis, working at the University of Ottawa, was given a $185,000 innovation grant to study whether the immune system has a role in breast cancer development. His research will be conducted over the next two years and could lead to new ways in determining the prognosis of breast cancer patients and using the immune system to ďŹ ght the disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for the society to continue to fund outside-of-the-box research,â&#x20AC;? Makrigiannis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That will help ďŹ nd new avenues and new ideas.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Sophie Lebel, also from the University of Ottawa, along with her co-investigator Christine Maheu of McGill University in Montreal, received a quality of life grant totalling $300,000. In the next three years they will test whether group therapy can help diminish fears of recurrence in cancer survivors. Maheu said cancer survivors often experience anxiety and fear that the disease will return. This decreases the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to make long-term life and health-care decisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to improve the quality of life by taking away that fear and anxiety,â&#x20AC;? Maheu said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason we want to do a group therapy setting is to encourage patients to help each other with their own experiences.â&#x20AC;? Kabat the grant recipients are chosen through a rigorous process that can include a peer review of the proposal by as many as 25 of their colleagues. He said he is happy to see world-class cancer research continuing in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that research is one of the most effective weapons in the ďŹ ght against this disease,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Teens test out tech skills

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - When Notre Dame High School students Erica Tan and Filsan Nur started a project to make a mobile app, they had no idea how to code software. But two semesters later, the 16-year-old girls were making slices of cheese and tomatoes, leaves of lettuce and buns and patties fly across the screen of a BlackBerry Playbook tablet in their game, Burger Party. Behind the images of fastfood snacks that make up their burger-building game are complex lines of code the girls learned how to write thanks to resources and mentoring through the TechU.me program. “We were coming in in Grade 10 with no idea how to code or anything like that, so this was all trial and error for us,” Filsan said. TechU.me, which kicked off in 2012 with almost $1 million in funding from FedDev Ontario, the federal government’s economic development branch for southern Ontario. It brings together tech companies that provide software and mentors to students enrolled in computer and communications technology courses at local high schools. Filsan and Erica are two of the 13,000 students who’ve been exposed to the basics of computer programming through

Nowruz Celebration in Ottawa As Deputy Mayor, it was my pleasure to welcome celebrants of Nowruz, the Persian New Year, at the Afghan-Canadian Jaffari Cultural Centre on March 23rd. The unique cultural fabric of Ottawa is woven from the lives of people from many different countries, religions and cultures and I was pleased to be able to recognize the Afghan Jaffari community for their contributions to our vibrant and diverse city. Barrhaven Spring Open House Residents are invited to attend the annual Barrhaven Spring Open House on Tuesday, April 8th hosted that I co-host with Councillor Jan Harder. Representatives from a variety of city and community services will be on hand to offer information and answer questions. The Open House will be held from 5 to 7:30 pm in the upper concourse at the Walter Baker Sports Centre, 100 Malvern Drive. This is a great opportunity to learn more about your community. I hope to see you there! Thank you to the Senators Foundation for hosting Veteran’s Appreciation Night This past April 2nd, the Senators Foundation hosted a Veteran’s Appreciation Night at Canadian Tire Centre for Veterans and their families. It was a night honouring those who have served for our Freedoms and for those who continue to serve each day. With the last soldiers returning home as Canada recently concluded its mission to Afghanistan, it was a fitting time to gather and recognize our Veterans and their families. I would like to welcome home the men and women who represented the remainder of more than 40,000 Canadian Armed Forces members who have served as part of the Afghanistan mission since 2002. I thank them for their service and wish them the very best in their future endeavours. Thank you to all our Minor Hockey Coaches and Volunteers As minor hockey season winds down, I would like to offer my thanks to all the coaches and volunteers for another great year. As a hockey dad with two active sons, I see the efforts and dedication all the participants bring to our minor hockey leagues. Thanks again to everyone who coached and volunteered; I am looking forward to next season!

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Erica Tan, left, and Filsan Nur, now in Grade 11 at Notre Dame High School, show off the BlackBerry Playbook app they made as part of the TechU.me computer science program. their school curriculum since the program began. TechU.me’s mentoring program has expanded from four to 55 schools in those two years, assisting 2,000 students. In the schools it’s been offered, enrollment in computer science and communications technology courses has gone up 35 per cent. That shows the program is increasing awareness about the importance of tech skills and the job opportunities available to young people, said Steve Evraire, TechU.me’s director.

Imparting the skills needed for critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity is just as important, he said. Sometimes TechU.me’s resources and mentorship are incorporated into a computer science course and some schools run the program as a lunch-hour club. TechU.me also runs summer technology camps and the App Jam – a contest for high-school students who enter their creations and win scholarships and $1,000 prizes.

Located at the corner of Strandherd Dr. and Woodroffe Ave., it provides easy access to Tunney’s Pasture, downtown, the University of Ottawa and Orleans via routes 94 & 176. The Nepean Woods Park and Ride features parking for 340 cars, frequent bus service 7 days a week, a convenient drop off / pick up zone, passenger and bike shelters, and sidewalks and benches.

Please contact me if I can be of assistance. (613) 580-2751 Steve.Desroches@Ottawa.ca www.SteveDesroches.ca

In the future, TechU.me wants to partner with Labour Market Ottawa to get more information about tech careers into high schools. “In many cases, students, parents and even sometimes guidance counsellors are unaware of some of the really, really interesting careers that are available,” Evraire said. But the fundamental goal isn’t just to get kids coding, he said. It’s to re-imagine how students acquire key skills they’ll need for the job market in the digital age.

The headlining acts for the July 3 to 13 festival include Lady Gaga, the Killers, Blake Shelton, Queens of the Stone Age, Lady Antebellum and Journey. The lineup in not finished, and a headline act for the closing night on July 13 still needs to be announced, said Bluesfest director Mark Monahan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Relatively speaking, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re further along than we usually are,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that Sheltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance was only confirmed the day before the lineup announcement. The list, in Bluesfest fashion, is also heavy on lesser known acts, and spreads the headliners out over the festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There seems to be a crowd now for most acts, not just the closing acts,â&#x20AC;? he said.

y sister Audreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice was stern that night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how often I have to tell you, Maryâ&#x20AC;? she said, wagging a finger under my nose. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has nothing to do with you. Mother gets like that ever so often. You should be used to it by now.â&#x20AC;? The issue was Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mood. She had that look about her that gave me knots in the pit of my stomach. But that year winter seemed to go on forever: the snow hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even begun to melt, the Model T was still up on blocks in the drive shed, and Mother seemed more melancholy than usual. As usual, I thought I had done something to upset her, something terrible like forgetting to close my eyes when saying our prayers at her knee at night or not wiping the oilcloth on the kitchen table to her satisfaction after cleaning up after supper. But Audrey said no, I had done nothing to put her in her mood. Once again she told me that this time of year was

Mother fidgeted in the evenings Continued from page 38

Harper Government Making Life More Affordable for Canadian Families Ottawa, ON – Recently, Statistics Canada published their Survey of Financial Security, confirming that Canadian families are better off today under our Conservative Government than under the previous Liberal Government. Since 2005, Canadian families have seen their net worth grow 44.5%. In fact, from 2005 until 2012, the largest increase in net worth occurred for families in the middle income bracket. These numbers reflect the outcome of our government’s low tax plan which puts more money where it belongs – in the pockets of Canadians and their families. We know that raising a family can be expensive However, our government’s focus on controlled spending, low taxes and balancing the budget by 2015 is making life more affordable for Canadian families. Because of initiatives like the Children’s Fitness and Arts tax credits, the Universal Child Care Benefit and lowering the GST from 7% to 5%, the average family is now able to save almost $3,400 per year. Proof that this Conservative government supports Canadian families is in the numbers: • We have cut taxes over 160 times • The number of Canadians living below the Low Income Cut-off is at its lowest level ever. • One million Canadians have been removed from the tax rolls, including 380,000 seniors.

and Audrey embroidering, I could actually hear Mother’s pencil, sliding over the page in her diary. It made the faintest of sounds, but on those evenings when Mother’s mind was a million miles away, I was so aware of every move she made at the end of the table. It was at that time that she wrote furiously in her diaries. She sat with her left arm circling her scribbler, and I would see her nod, as if confirming what she was writing, and I could tell when she came to the end of a sentence. She would jab at the

It seemed to me that during the day, Mother was happier than she was at night this time of year. And again, my much wiser and older sister Audrey said it was because her days were filled with washing and ironing, baking, and keeping the old log house in tip-top shape. It was the evenings, when only the coaloil lamp in the middle of the table lit the kitchen, and the wind howled outside, and the branches of the bare tree close to the house scraped against the windows, that Mother fidgeted at one end of the table, often staring off into space. She took to looking up to one corner of the kitchen ceiling, as if she were searching for something. Then she would give her head a shake, and bend down to her diaries in front of her. If Father was aware of the change in Mother, he said nothing. He still dozed in the rocking chair by the cook stove, puffing on his pipe until he fell asleep, and the pipe landed on his chest leaving his mouth, or as often happened, slid to the floor, landing on the Ottawa Farm Journal, or the Family Herald and Weekly Star. And I would sit at the long kitchen table, pretending to be drawing in a five-cent scribbler, bought at the Rexall One Cent Sale, and kept for just such an evening pastime. But my eyes would be on Mother. And in the silence of the kitchen, the brothers quietly doing what amused them,

But now, the house was quiet. The only sounds came from Father plugging more wood into the stove. We would have said our prayers as usual. And as usual, Mother would put her hand on each head signalling it was time for us to say our own prayer and ask God for special favours. And I would pray for the end of winter. I would pray that before long our evenings would return to happier times, when joy would come from Mother playing the harmonica, as Audrey and I leafed through

Then she would give her head a shake, and bend down to her diaries in front of her

paper with the pencil, as if to say, “There now. That’s how I feel.” I longed to see what she had written, but of course, no one was allowed near her scribblers which were kept in the upper shelf of the back-to-the-wall cupboard. That was a sacred place. At other times I would fall asleep to the click-clack of the old treadle Singer sewing machine when Mother sewed after we had gone to bed. It was a wonderful, soothing sound.

Eaton’s catalogue. When the days were longer, the snow had left the foundation of the house, and Mother would once again return from wherever she was on those dark and gloomy nights at the end of winter.

Pierre Poilievre MP Nepean-Carleton

IG S!

The Leader of the Liberal Party is not on the right track for Canadian families. He would massively increase the size of the federal government by ballooning national debt or increasing taxes on Canadian families. On the other hand, our Conservative low tax plan is making life more affordable for Canadian families while moving towards a balanced budget.

SAVE

ON GA

Finally, this Conservative government is helping families by embarking on the most ambitious trade agenda in Canadian history. Since coming to office, we have negotiated numerous free trade agreements, including an agreement with the European Union which will create approximately 80,000 jobs. More recently, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement, which will also create thousands of new jobs and open up new markets for Canadian business. The elimination of tariffs from these nations means lower costs for Canadian families at the stores.

TO EAT AT B

DRAFTTSS

Our government is also taking additional steps to support Canadian families by addressing the price gap between goods sold in Canada versus the United States. Statistics Canada estimates that, in 2011, Canadians were paying about 25% more than consumers south of the border for identical products. This price difference can significantly affect the cost of living for Canadian families, which is why we will ensure that discriminatory, country-based pricing will be prohibited.

WE WANT YOU!

• We have increased the amount families in the two lowest personal income tax brackets can earn before paying taxes. All of this confirms that this Government is making life more affordable for Canadian families

Nepean school reviving ‘Super Soul’ Wizard of Oz musical remake Upcoming show entered in Cappies competition Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Arts - Sir Robert Borden High School has been working for months to bring the tale of Dorothy and the yellow brick road to life on stage, except this telling of the classic adds some Motown flair. The school is playing the Broadway hit The Wiz, which retells the classic story within

the context of African-American culture. While the Broadway production helped to showcase black performers who were being overlooked during the ’70s, being of African descent was not a requirement for the Sir Robert Borden show. The ’70s remake was a hit at the time, winning several Tony awards including best musical. The story was also R0012619437-0403

adapted for the silver screen, featuring Diana Ross as Dorothy and Michael Jackson as Scarecrow. Borden students are hoping to share in that success in the Cappies theatre competition. The Cappies is a program that has students critique school theatre productions, write reviews for possible publication in the Ottawa Citizen, and awards productions for choreography, special effects, best actor and other categories. Borden performers have been rehearsing since January, said English teacher Barbara Mason, who is involved in the musical. The production is heavily student driven, with about 100 students participating. “It’s an amazing learning experience because it’s school wide,” said Mason. “There are musicians, there are dancers, there are actors, there are kids working back stage, there are stage managers, there are kids doing lighting, there are kids doing the soundboard, there are kids doing all the sound effects. It’s just a wonderful opportunity to work really hard at something and come out with a re-

Pet Adoptions LULU (A164598)

Meet Lulu (A164598), a 10-year-old tuxedo cat looking for her forever home. Lulu has a sweet temperament and gets along well with everyone after taking a couple minutes to warm up to new friends. She will tell stories to anyone who will listen, so she’d be best matched with an owner who appreciates a chatty kitty. Lulu was declawed by her previous owner and would like to be the only feline in your life. She would love nothing more than to curl up for a catnap in a sunny patch on your living room floor.

Museum offers tasty Arctic adventure Edible festival runs this weekend Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The Canadian Museum of Nature is offering its patrons one last chance to take a bite out of winter. The museum will host an edible festival from April 3 to 7, featuring culture, traditions, science and culinary treats from the Canadian Arctic. This is the second year that the museum is presenting a festival honouring the country’s vast northern region. Activities include Arctic food and craft fairs, chain

art, a scavenger hunt, igloo building, Inuit drum demonstrations and a photo exhibit of Inuit country food in urban areas. MEET THE STAFF

Children and adults alike will also have the opportunity to interact with museum scientists and research staff to talk about their Arctic-related work, from botany to Arctic fish X-rays to preparing food for rugged northern field trips. Meg Beckel, the museum’s president, said this event explores the sci-

ence of the region as well as highlights some of the great culture and people living in this part of Canada. “The Arctic is a crucial region; it acts as an earlywarning system for global environmental change,” Beckel said. “Through active scientific research in the Arctic our museum serves an important role in contributing to the global record of knowledge.” The Nunavut Tourism and Adventure Canada is

helping support the event. “Nunavut is an exotic and untamed destination much closer than you think.” said Colleen Dupuis, Nunavut Tourism’s chief operating officer. For a full list of the festival events, visit nature. ca.
