The world arrives in Nepean Russia’s Anna Prugova lets in the lone goal in an April 3 game against Czech Republic as Denisa Krizova puts the puck past her at the Nepean Sportsplex. Russia beat Czech Republic 3-1 on the second day of the world women’s hockey championships. The teams faced off in front of hundreds of Ottawa schoolchildren.

EMC news - The city plans to write off $1 million of the $10 million it is owed from property owners who had agreed to pay tax levies for local infrastructure improvements. Most of the outstanding charges – 70 per cent – are related to local projects like the Manotick sanitary sewer extensions and an extension to Legget Drive that were constructed over the last four years. The city can allow property owners to pay for a portion of work that wouldn’t be warranted under city policies, such as extending a water main farther down a street than planned in order to provide service to additional properties. Some of that money likely can’t be recovered because of a loophole: if the property changed hands and the local improvement fee wasn’t See DEBTS, page 6

EMC - It was Aug. 15, 1945, when John Franken, on a bus

full of Allied prisoners of war, got a chance to see the devastation from the atomic bomb the Americans dropped on Nagasaki, Japan just six days earlier.

“Everything was flat, there were a few remnants from concrete buildings, but not much,” he said as he remembered riding through the city centre with the windows open. “There wasn’t even a bird chirping,” he said. Franken had been working more than 600 metres below

the earth’s surface in a coal mine separated from the city by Mount Inasa, when the bomb that killed as many as 80,000 people in one day hit the ground. “I came up and I saw the plume of smoke,” Franken said. “We thought the Americans had bombed the muni-

tions plant.” The A-bomb saved Franken’s life. He has spent much of that time lobbying the Japanese government to try and get them to apologize for the atrocities he suffered at the hands of the Imperial army.

Protests in front of embassy get no action Continued from page 1

JENNIFER MCINTOSH/METROLAND

John Franken, a soldier in the Dutch navy and air force, was taken prisoner by the Japanese in 1942, as he tried to flee Indonesia for Australia. For the last 20 years, Franken has taken to protesting outside the Japanese embassy in Canada on the anniversary of the Japanese surrender during the Second World War. He wants an apology for the atrocities he and other prisoners of war suffered.

For the last 20 years Franken and a group of fellow prisoners of war have protested outside the Japanese Embassy in Ottawa on the anniversary of the Japanese surrender at the end of the Second World War. The aim of the protest was to have the Japanese government acknowledge and apologize for their treatment of prisoners during the war. Now 91, Franken said bad knees caused by repeatedly being struck by soldiers when he failed to carry out commands quickly enough may mean he won’t be standing in front of the embassy this August. But he will be there in spirit. “When I get my knees fixed again, I will be back,” Franken said. He said his story, and the stories of others who suffered as he did, must be remembered to prevent something like that from happening again. “I will try to tell about the horrible things people can do to each other in the name of socalled religion,” Franken said. “To show that nothing has been learned in 2,000 years.” A native of the former Dutch colony now referred to as Indonesia, Franken was conscripted into the army when he was still a teenager. In 1942 he was on a ship evacuating Indonesia for Australia when he was captured by the Japanese. The Indonesian boat had one gun aboard. His younger brother Albert was conscripted into the navy. He too was captured by the Japanese and ended up being forced to work on the Burma Railroad. When frequent bouts with malaria made him too sick to work – the soldiers threw him into the swamp. He was rescued by a Thai woman – who nursed him back to health and who he later married. Franken’s first wife was his sister-inlaw’s sister. After the Japanese boarded Franken’s ship, he was brought to his first prison camp and put into a room with 130 other men – the room was

meant to hold 18. There was only one window and the enlisted men had to fight the officers for air to breathe. “It was like waking up from a nightmare,” he said of his ship being taken. “I looked up and saw instead of our flag, this one with a big, red dot on it.” COMFORT GIRLS

While there, it was Franken’s job to clean up after the “comfort girls.” “There were women: Chinese, Dutch, Filipinos who were abducted and used as sex slaves for the soldiers,” Franken said. School houses would be converted for this use and soldiers would stand in line to wait for

their turn. “One girl would have to service as many as 30 or 40 soldiers per day,” he said, adding he would clean up in between uses and remove the towels that women would use to clean themselves up. “It was awful, there was nothing I could do to help them,” he said. Franken said for years the Japanese government tried to deny the existence of comfort girls. See VETERAN, page 3

Veteran asks people Feeling bookish? to remember history “But I was there, I saw it,” he said. A memorial plaque in a small town in New Jersey town honours the more than 200,000 Korean, Chinese and Filipino women who were used as comfort girls by the Japanese soldiers during the Second World War. The plaque became contentious when media reports said the Japanese consulate out of New York asked to have the plaque removed.

crete bags and cut arm holes out so that he would wear them over his clothing. When doing welding work in the shipyard he worked in for three years, Franken contracted dysentery and had to rely on the kindness of his Japanese boss to survive. He managed to walk every day from where he was being held, but was unable to work. “Those who couldn’t work, didn’t last long,” Franken said. “So the man, he was in his seventies, he hid me under the assembly belt and fed me soft rice so I could regain my strength,” he said. And while he worked in the cold and rain, he dreamed of freedom. It came from an unexpected source. Franken said he volunteered to go work in the coal mine because in the shipyard you only got one bath every ten days and it was in a three-by-fourmetre concrete tub.

“If you got in first the water was clean, but not for long,” he said. “At the coal mines you got a bath everyday that seemed like heaven to me.” It was May of 1945 when he was told he would be selected for work in the coal mine and they made the trek in June. They had started to hear stories of Germany’s surrender that spring, but were so far cut off from the outside world that they couldn’t be sure what was true and what was rumour. By the time Franken rode the bus through Nagasaki, he had spend 1,288 days as a prisoner of war, despite never having fired a single bullet. Franken has three children, two from his first marriage and a daughter from his second wife Sonja who was a survivor of Auschwitz. Sonja was in the gas chamber three times, prepared to die. Each time it malfunctioned. “She was diagnosed with cancer and the doctor told her she only had three years,” Franken said. “She looked at the doctor and said, ‘you see these numbers on my arm?’ Hitler, couldn’t kill me, neither will cancer.’ She lived for another 22 years.” Franken shows the same strength of character, pledging to get back into schools and continue demonstrating as soon as his knee surgery is completed. One piece of solace he takes from the time he spent as a prisoner is the support from meetings he has with fellow Dutch survivors of Japanese prison camps. They call themselves Kumpulana, and they meet monthly to tell their stories and offer each other support. Individual stories can be found at www.kumpulana.ca.

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER

As he gets older, Franken works harder to make sure he spreads his tales, sometimes attending schools to talk to children about what he went through. “When Eisenhower went through the areas of the Holocaust he said to take a picture, because no one would believe it really happened,” Franken said. “When my generation is gone, there won’t be anymore stories. If we don’t remember, then it could happen again.”

The future of horse racing at the Rideau Carleton Raceway is left in limbo after the SlotsAt-Racetracks program was cancelled. MacMillan. Despite cutting the program, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and the Ontario government are working to find a solution that will help foster high quality racing, according to OLG spokesman Rui Brum. He said it is committed to creating a sustainable racing industry that is fair to all stakeholders. To accomplish this, the Transition of Ontario Horse Racing Industry panel was created. It looks at opportunities to help modernization and maintain sustainability within the industry. “The government brought in this panel to look at ways to help ensure there is a future in the horse racing industry,” said Brum. The panel has created a report with recommendations that will help the industry transition into a sustainable model. MacMillan, however, said that his associa-

tion has never been approached to discuss such changes. NO CONSULTATIONS

“The government has not even spoken to horse people about this process, not at all,” said MacMillan. “We have routinely called them and they haven’t returned our calls.” There hasn’t been much public consultation for the location of the permanent casino either, he added. He is currently collecting data from concerned citizens on the Casino Choice Ottawa Facebook page. He plans to bring the results to Mayor Jim Watson and the rest of council. “We have to be concerned as horse people about the racetrack being operational and afloat or else we have no place to race in addition to worrying about how much purse money we are

The horse racing industry employs about 60,000 people in Ontario. Out of that 40,000 are employed full-time while 20,000 are part-time workers. Many of them are at risk of losing their jobs with this decision. “They (the government) are always talking about making jobs, but why take away jobs,” said Armitage. It may also create a ripple effect through congruent industries. “It’s not just the horses. We all use trailers, we buy trucks, we buy harnesses, we buy hay,” he added. “It’s an industry.” Despite the apprehension, horse people have rallied to fight the decision. They lobbied, wrote to the government and approached their MPPs. As such, the Ontario government has tentatively made strides towards creating a sustainable funding model with Western Fair, Clinton, Woodbine, Mohawk, Hanover and Grand River race tracks. The Rideau Carleton Raceway is not currently part of this, but is discussing alternative possibilities with the OLG, said MacMillan. “Given that the slots are still at the raceway, Rideau Carleton is trying to negotiate a deal to keep them there,” he said. “Something similar to the program, tweak it, make adjustments to it. “We are fine with that,” he added. “We are fine if they want to introduce new forms of gambling and give us a percentage of that. We need some sort of profit sharing from the slot machines.” ge e C t a ar om fre ly a e e nd gi ft ba g

EMC news - The future of horse racing at the Rideau Carleton Raceway is left in limbo after the Slots-At-Racetracks program was cancelled. The program officially ended on March 31, letting a torrent of fear and uncertainty ripple through the local industry. It is a tragedy for the people that depend on the program, said National Capital Region Harness Horse Association (NCRHHA) president John MacMillan. “Horse people have essentially been left out in the cold,” he said. The Rideau Carleton Raceway has already cut its programming from three race days a week to two, he added. Since its inception in 1998, the Slots-AtRacetracks program has been helping sustain the industry by providing about $3.7 billion in slot revenue. The deal allowed horse people to directly take home 10 per cent of the money, said veteran harness racer and veterinarian Roly Armitage. “Due to the fact that they brought the horsemen into it, everybody brought better horses into it, put more money into it and everything else, including myself,” said the former mayor of the West Carleton township. There are several horse ranches and horse-related businesses in West Carleton. After Finance Minister Dwight Duncan announced the province’s decision to cut funding last year, several horse people have found themselves in a dilemma. Many of them have stopped breeding their mares and several are getting out of the business altogether. “It’s not possible to sustain yourself in this industry as a horse trainer under the current model no matter how successful you are,” said

registered on the properties’ title, the city is pretty much out of luck. The city could take those new owners to court, said Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark, who sits on the finance and economic development committee, but lawyers advised that the city likely wouldn’t be successful. With that in mind, the finance committee agreed that outstanding local improvement charges should be dismissed if the owner bought the property after the infrastructure construction and if the tax certificate did not list the pending charges. That would apply to 73 property owners who should be on the

hook to pay the city a total of $1.1 million. Council was set to vote for final approval on the matter on April 10. There are a few reasons why the fees haven’t been collected. Some are administrative and relate to legislative delays and research necessary for launching the committee of revision, while other delays are caused by the length of the construction projects and the staff time required to “triage” the new projects. The committee’s approval was also needed to allow the city to accept a payment for a water main project on Navan Road that was completed before council passed a bylaw enabling it to impose local improvement charges.

April 27 is Daffodil Day: wear a pin EMC news - Every three minutes another Canadian hears the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have cancer,â&#x20AC;? and the Canadian Cancer Society wants them to know that they are not alone. During Daffodil Month, and especially on Daffodil Day on April 27, the society is asking Canadians to wear a daffodil pin as a bright symbol of support for people living with cancer and to join the fight against cancer by making a donation. The launch of the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daffodil campaign is especially meaningful as it marks the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 75th anniversary. On March 28, 1938, the Canadian Cancer Society was officially born, growing through the years into Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading national cancer-fighting charity. Today â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thanks to the years of support of volunteers and donors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the society has the reach, strength and experience to make the most impact against cancer in communities across Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We invite Canadians to join us in marking our 75th anniversary by mak-

The embassy will host the seventh monthly Korean movie screening in April to further celebrate the 2013 Year of Korea in Canada. For information, call 613-244-5053.

The bright yellow daffodil has been an integral part of the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history since it was used for the first time during the 1950s to decorate tables at fundraising events that became known as Daffodil Teas. Daffodil Day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Saturday, April 27 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; helps wrap up the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign by designating a special day where we can reflect upon the thousands of Canadians who are on a cancer journey and also to remember those who have not survived.

CELEBRATING VOLUNTEERS Volunteers are an integral part of the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (CASO) work, generously donating approximately 30,000 hours of their time each year. Volunteer tasks are varied and ďŹ&#x201A;exible, matching interests and skills with volunteer positions and working with peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busy schedules. While some of CASOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer opportunities require a moderate time commitment, Special Assignments allow for more ďŹ&#x201A;exibility. Special Assignment include: organizing, knitting and crafts, providing entertainment, or acting as photographers at events. Volunteer Drivers support the children and youth in care by providing a safe nonjudgmental space where they can comfortably sit in silence or speak with an attentive listener. Child Access Volunteers similarly help to provide a safe space by supervising visits between parents and children. Pre-School Volunteers and Tutor/Mentors provide more formalized guidance. PreSchool Volunteers assist professional staff, guiding children from three months to ďŹ ve years through a variety of weekly programs. Tutors/Mentors, under the supervision of the case worker, help school-aged children with subjects like Math, English and Science, encouraging students to develop their interests and build educational goals. Volunteering with CASO is a learning opportunity for the volunteers themselves as they undergo training, work collaboratively with fellow volunteer and staff and develop relationships with foster parents and the families we serve. The scope of our volunteersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work is extensive. And their commitment and generosity to the community is humbling. Here at CASO, we recognize the importance of our volunteers every day. They are the building blocks upon which our foundation, and in fact, our community, rests. April 21 to 27, 2013 is National Volunteer Week, an opportunity for us to take stock of the time that volunteers across the country donate daily. We would like to take this opportunity to formally thank our volunteers for their tireless work. We want to celebrate their generosity and commitment. Their contribution to supporting children and youth in care, and the Ottawa community more broadly, makes a difference every day and every hour.

Asking a lot of children

S

tudents at a school in Barrhaven will launch a hiring guide for local businesses this week. The Grade 4 students put a lot of work into their product, meeting with more than 30 local business managers to find out what hiring tools they currently use. The kids have since compiled a hiring guide, which will soon be for sale, with proceeds to Big Brothers, Big Sisters. The goal was to develop something that would help people in the community and the hiring guide could help connect job-seekers with prospective employers. The project was developed with help from the Learning Partnership, a national non-profit organization that promotes the public education system in Canada. The organization is participating in similar projects at 240 schools. By working on the guide, students got a taste of teamwork and the value of all the steps in the business process, say organizers. Encouraging entrepreneurial spirit in youngsters is a good idea, but it’s also reasonable to ask if maybe we’re expecting our kids to grow up a little

too soon. There will be time to learn marketing and project management in high school or at college or university, all before those skills can ever be honed in the real world. Grade 4 is too early for students to choose a future educational goal or career. It’s not clear what skills a nine or 10-year-old might develop today that will be of value when they enter the workforce. Sampling many careers might be a better use of the kids’ time than carrying out one intensive project. Parents of any kids involved in the Learning Partnership programs should share their thoughts with teachers, principals and school board trustees. It would be interesting to know if the parents think their kids’ time was well spent, especially if there was follow-up years later to see if a Grade 4 student went on to bigger things and was inspired or prepared in part by the Learning Partnership program. Without that information over the long term, it’s impossible to say if learning business skills at a young age is the right course or if kids should just be kids for a little longer.

Fixing Queen Street, and other Ottawa fantasies

I

n Ottawa, even the good news is somewhat mysterious. Take, for example, the word that the city is looking for submissions from engineering consultants on ways to improve Queen Street, so that it will be nice to walk along in a few years when light rail is running underneath it. The mysterious part: how could anyone think that Queen Street can be improved in any way other than blowing it up and starting over again? The Citizen article on the Queen Street study contained the usual allusions to planting more trees and widening sidewalks and adding benches, but hey. There’s no retail on Queen Street, hardly a restaurant and lots of ugly glass buildings. You think wider sidewalks is going to help much? Two years ago, on a Saturday afternoon in April, Tyler Brûlé, the former Ottawan turned London magazine tycoon, was wandering around downtown. Here’s his description, in the Financial Times, of what he saw: “The street was littered with soggy bits of rubbish; some shops were out of business; almost every office tower had a lease sign in the lobby window and it was eerily deserted. I walked a few blocks hoping the urban landscape would improve but the few retail

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town outlets that were open felt tatty and tired, the streets were buckling and full of potholes and every other block was punctuated by a vacant property, an empty parking lot and restaurant closed for business, permanently.” Not a bad description and it obviously made an impression, because Brûlé was invited back to Ottawa, where he spent two years in the ‘80s going to Nepean High School, to give a public talk as part of an ideas project to improve the city. For reasons understandable to those who deal with famous people, the deal fell through and the organizers are now looking for another expert. “The vision of bringing someone to give us some advice is still on the table,” Coun. Mathieu Fleury told the Citizen. “We want to bring someone with that kind of Published weekly by:

profile.” As the old saying goes, an expert is someone from out of town. Too many cities get their reputation from the guy who spends two days there and writes an analysis based on the airport, the personality of the taxi driver who brings him from the airport, the hotel, two restaurants near the hotel, the street the hotel is on and the taxi driver who takes him back to the airport. A guy who walked around the Glebe or the Market, rather than Queen Street, would have a different assessment of Ottawa. A guy who stayed in Ottawa South or Kanata would think differently from a guy who stayed at the Westin. Which is not to say that Queen Street is not awful. It is. It’s just that we don’t need to pay someone to tell us that. Many of the problems that plague our city are obvious to anyone who lives here and don’t require expert advice. If you want a vibrant Queen Street, put some stores on it. For those stores to thrive they need customers, people who live downtown. That means apartment buildings instead of office buildings. People have known this for decades, people who are not from out of town.

Persuading business and government to do anything about it is, and always has been, the problem. It costs money. As time passes without anything being done people learn to live without downtown. They have their neighbourhood stores and restaurants, if they are lucky enough to have that kind of neighbourhood. If not, they have the nearest mall, where there are stores and the parking is free and easy to find. If Queen Street is awful, it ceases to matter to a lot of folks. And that makes it harder to find the will to fix it. Maybe this time will be different.

LETTER

Community hero thanked for 12 great skating seasons To the editor,

As the winter season draws to a close and the outdoor rinks slowly melt away, many Barrhaven families will have fond memories of their time spent in pursuit of one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite passtimes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; learning to skate or playing hockey with friends on an outdoor rink. What does it take to maintain a community rink? It takes countless hours of hard work by dedicated volunteers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an operation that requires people to shovel, to flood, to clear, to turn on and off the lights and to supervise the heated changerooms where we can comfortably put on skates. It requires people to work early in the morning after a night of blowing snow, and it requires late nights of flooding in bitterly cold weather, when most people are curled up on the couch relaxing at home. Above all, it takes a leader â&#x20AC;&#x201C; someone who selflessly devotes their time to making sure that there is a team of

workers, from the moment the temperature drops in late December to the first thaw in late February. Maintaining an outdoor rink is a big job and requires people with a huge sense of commitment and community spirit to make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done right. Fred Kendall, is one such community leader. Anyone who has ever driven by the Barrhaven South Park outdoor rink in the early morning hours has probably seen the icy plumes of snow being driven into the sky by a solitary man and a snowblower. For the past 12 years, during the wee hours of the morning or the late hours of the evening, on weekdays, weekends and even holidays, Fred could be found at the rink. The 2012-13 season marks Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12th as rink captain. Every year the number of volunteers varies and this year volunteers were at an all-time low. This year, when he found his roster lacking in numbers, Fred picked up the slack by doing the shoveling and flood-

ing duties, often four and five nights a week. After his 12 years of service, Fred has announced his intention to hang up his snow shovel and step down as the organizer of the volunteer team. He plans to give his back a well-deserved rest and spend some of his new free time with his family. I suspect, however, you will still find Fred lending his time and expertise to the cause in the years to follow. I hope you will join me in expressing gratitude to Fred, and to all of the volunteers who help to make our community a wonderful place to live. And, I would also like to issue a challenge to anyone who would like to follow in Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s footsteps. If you would like to help continue the tradition of providing kids and their families with a great place to have fun and enjoy a Canadian outdoor experience, please consider volunteering next year.

How to shed 50 pounds per year

I

’ve written a lot about the overweight and obesity epidemic that’s plaguing us. But I’ll admit, even as I touted the importance of engaging with nature, getting more daily exercise, and eating a healthy diet, I was tipping my own scale. By two pounds, I am now officially overweight – again. While post-baby fat and lack of a good night’s sleep has made me somewhat selfforgiving, I’ve decided to put my money where my mouth is (although maybe putting things in my mouth isn’t really

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse the answer). But here it is: I have vowed to lose 20 pounds by autumn. That will put me back to a healthy, normal pre-three-babies weight. How am I going to do it? Well, it’s not going to

be easy. It’s going to be slow and methodical. Believe me, I’d love to drop all the weight by summer, but everything I’ve read says slow is the way to go – slightly more than a pound of weight per week.

The problem is gaining weight is much easier than losing it. Assuming all calories are created equal – which they’re not – one pound of body fat is equivalent to approximately 3,500 calories. To put it in perspective, if you ate a Quiznos brownie every day, you’d gain a pound a week. If you have been eating Quiznos brownies every day at and you stop, you may lose a pound. Sounds easy, right? Not exactly. The thing is you have to maintain your calorie deficit over time, which means it’s not just a matter of what you eat, but also what you do. Saying that, I definitely think the first few pounds

R0011990965

can be shed by eliminating a couple of staple foods from my diet: coffee and wine. I realized I can cut about 600 calories, on average, per day, just by giving up the tall boys I drink each morning for creative inspiration. I don’t like black coffee – I’m more of a double-double kind of gal. I worked it out that I’m taking in about 500 calories per day between the sugar and cream in my coffee. Easy fix. The second one is a little harder – wine. I have spent this long winter pretending to be an amateur connoisseur of red wine. Unfortunately, alcohol has effect of slowing your metabolism until it clears your system. How sad is that? And there are three other distinct problems with my winter posing as a sommelier: there is a fine line between connoisseur and alcoholic; a glass of red wine contains about 85 calories (and that’s a small glass – ahem); and the fact that I really know very little about wine was discovered when I failed to pronounce Syrah at a recent meeting of the minds and that I had no idea that Shiraz and Syrah were the same thing. So besides the calorie deficit of, on average, up to 150 per day, losing wine will help me regain my reputation as an intelligent dinner guest. At the end of the day, los-

ing weight will come down to the amount of exercise I can squeeze in between my hours of writing. Despite all my blather earlier this year, I’ve decided to forgo trendy exercises and take up walking. It sounds crazy, right? How many pounds can you shed by putting one foot in front of the other? But I’ve had a lot of success with walking in the past. For one, it’s totally manageable. The biggest hurdle, really, is getting my shoes on and getting out without making excuses. When I do get out, I tend to walk really fast – almost at a jogging pace. It’s not as efficient as running, so you have to do more of it. But 60 minutes of brisk walking per day should help me burn about 200 calories. Strap a 20-pound baby to my front and maybe I’ll get an extra 35 calories out of the deal. Doing the math, the dietary changes plus the exercise equates to subtracting about 5,900 calories per week. I could lose 50 pounds per year! Not too shabby, huh? Of course, once the wine and coffee are out of my system, I may have to consider giving up bread and butter ... and maybe cheese, or taking up Zumba. But that’s a topic for another column.

Nepean home raided in drug bust Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ottawa policeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guns and gangs unit spent the long Easter weekend finishing a six-month investigation that lead to six arrests and the seizure of $700,000 of cocaine. Oxycodone pills, marijuana and weapons were also confiscated. Seizures were made from three residences in Ottawa involved in the drug trafficking â&#x20AC;&#x153;business operationsâ&#x20AC;? said Sgt. Ken Bryden, who supervised the raids. The homes are in the 300 block of Fenerty Court in Kanata, the 200 block of Moss Grove Street in Barrhaven and 1300 Prince of Wales Drive. Six individuals were charged, including a 29-year-old from Ottawa who went by the street name Apache â&#x20AC;&#x201C; leading to the title Project Apache. Three 21year-old men, a 20-year-old man from Ottawa and a 27-year-old man from Gatineau were also charged. The charges include participation in a criminal organization, the first time for Ottawa guns and gangs arrests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen that with street gang members here in our city,â&#x20AC;? said Staff Sgt. Mark Patterson. Bryden said that there has been an increase in cocaine traf-

ficking in the city over the past few years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supply and demand. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the nature of that business now,â&#x20AC;? Bryden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that has progressed over the years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly a trend that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen.â&#x20AC;? The scope of the raids ranged from Kanata to OrlĂŠans and included work with Gatineau and Toronto police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had officers from the

west end, we had officers from the east end, we had neighbourhood officers from central,â&#x20AC;? Sgt. Bryden said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city wide.â&#x20AC;? It led to an intense four days over Easter, with the raids condensed over two days at the three residences for the 10-person team involved in the project. None of the arrested lived in the homes that were raided. The accused often travelled back and forth to Toronto, but

were all Ottawa-based. While Patterson was hesitant to elaborate on gang connections related to the bust until the case is in front of the courts, he did say the Crip gang believed to be was involved. Police have stopped referring to the Crips as the Ledbury Banff Crips, but they have long been reported as group based in south-east Ottawa. The people arrested were not the drug dealers seen â&#x20AC;&#x153;doing hand-to-hand transactionsâ&#x20AC;? Bryden said, but the ones higher up in the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chain of command, trafficking large amounts to smaller-quantity dealers. Police suspect much of the powder cocaine seized would have been turned into crack cocaine and sold to crack addicts. The project originally started as a firearms investigation, said Staff Sgt. Patterson. The firearms seized â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a .45-calibre Llama Max handgun and Browning 9-mm handgun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are being sent to the Ontario Centre for Forensic Sciences in Toronto to undergo ballistic testing to see if they match evidence for any unsolved crimes. There are still ongoing charges and arrests expected to be made as a result of the project. Two arrests were made early in the investigation in November and the six arrested over Easter are being held in police custody.

Report calls for ban on junk food ads aimed at kids

Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park is as busy as ever as we continue public consultations on the upcoming provincial budget. These pre-budget consultation sessions are an important way for the Government of Ontario to understand your priorities. On Wednesday, April 3rd, I hosted a live telephone townhall conference with thousands of local residents to hear your thoughts on the upcoming provincial budget. If you missed the call, please do not hesitate to contact me at my constituency ofďŹ ce at 613-7218075 or bob@bobchiarelli.com. One of the main topics brought up during the townhall was youth employment. This is a critical issue to the health of our economy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and for our families. Growing the economy and creating jobs is one of the most important tasks we have as a government. We are already taking signiďŹ cant steps towards this goal by working to eliminate the deďŹ cit, and implementing key recommendations from the Jobs and Prosperity Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent report. SpeciďŹ cally for youth, there are a number of jobs programs offered by the provincial government that I encourage you to explore. One such initiative is Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 Summer Employment Opportunities Program. Over 4,000 student positions are available with the Ontario Public Service, and positions continue to be posted on an on-going basis. You can visit http:// www.gojobs.gov.on.ca/SEP.asp for more information. A second initiative is the Government of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summer Company program. This program will give youth hands-on business training and mentoring, together with awards of up to $3,000, to help start and run a summer business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and get a real taste of what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be an entrepreneur. Our province has fared better than most through the global recession, and the Ontario government has taken great strides to protect the important public services that we all rely on. Still, there is much work to be done. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on track to eliminate the deďŹ cit by 2017-18, and Ottawa has seen a 0.5% decrease in unemployment over the past year. On January 14, Dominion Bond Rating Service reported that Ontario was the only province in Canada tracking ahead of their budget targets. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made great progress working together with people throughout Ontario just like you, and I look forward to continuing this progress with members of our community.

EMC news - About 70 per cent of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children will become overweight or obese adults, according to an Ontario Ministry of Health-commissioned report. To prevent this, an Ontario Healthy Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Panel Ontarioproduced report is pushing for a ban on marketing junk food to children under 12. Products would not be banned but targeted advertising to children would, conďŹ rms Healthy Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; panel co-chair Alex Munter. He indicated that promoting high-calorie, low-nutrient foods to kids should be banned province-wide. A similar ban against toy- and fast-food-ads has been in place in Quebec for the past 30 years. According to the report, the approach has resulted in between two billion and four billion fewer calories consumed by young children in that province. Several less controversial recommendations are included: â&#x20AC;˘ Adopt standardized prenatal education curriculum. â&#x20AC;˘ Require food retailers and restaurants to list the nutritional value of their products to create a three-pronged strategy encouraging children to lead a healthy lifestyle. The report offers a solid howto from health service providers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really kind of zoomed in on some areas that we know we can make some improvements if we work together,â&#x20AC;? said Ottawa Public Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health promotion and disease prevention manager Sherry Nigro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just something that doctors do, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just something that teachers do,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that everybody needs to be engaged in.â&#x20AC;? PARENTS NEED HELP

If these recommendations are implemented, childhood obesity would be reduced by 20 per cent over ďŹ ve years, said Munter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents have repeatedly told us that they want to provide health food options for their kids, but often ďŹ nd that the environment around them undermines those efforts,â&#x20AC;? said Munter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we can and we should do something about that.â&#x20AC;? The reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations

ALEX MUNTER CHEO CEO

were deeply rooted in the belief that parents must be backed up, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents are doing their best for their kids and they want us to support them and I think they have the right to expect government, businesses, schools, professionals and service providers to back them up in their efforts to raise healthy kids,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ontario Minister of Health Deb Matthews announced that she will look over all 23 of the reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendations and Munter is hopeful that many of them will be implemented. The panel took great care in getting into the meat and potatoes of the issue while eliminating the ďŹ&#x201A;uff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did not produce a list of hundreds of utopian ideas,â&#x20AC;? said Munter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did review hundreds of ideas, but we boiled it down to a three-prong strategy.â&#x20AC;? This strategy involves giving kids the best start in life, chang-

R0012023047

a stepping stone for other similar programs, said Nigro. Munter prefers not to speculate on which recommendation will be put into action and which wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Several weeks after publication the report has already generated criticisms as well as praise over what some deem controversial methods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of that will gel a consensus of what we need to do to tackle the issue,â&#x20AC;? said Munter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact is that childhood obesity has tripled in the last three decades.â&#x20AC;? Nearly a third of children between the age of two and 17 are currently overweight or obese. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we are starting to see high blood pressure in younger children,â&#x20AC;? said Nigro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a link with other diseases like polycystic ovary syndrome, some metabolic issues and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not touching how it affects our psyche. There is deďŹ nitely a

link between obesity and self esteem.â&#x20AC;? The report promotes healthy lifestyle instead of focusing on a number on a scale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really shifting people away from thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If only I was a size six, my life would be perfect.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about that,â&#x20AC;? said Nigro. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thinking about having three meals and a nice family environment so you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just shoveling food in your mouth while you are watching TV,â&#x20AC;? she added. The Healthy Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; panel is composed of 18 Ontarians, sharing a wide range of experiences, opinions and backgrounds. They worked together for about six months consulting with leading health experts and stakeholder organizations, reading thousands of report pages and hearing from over 2,000 concerned parents. More information on the report can be found on the Ontario Ministry of Health and LongTerm careâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www. health.gov.on.ca.

Would you like to swallow 20 pills every day, just to digest your food? If you had cystic fibrosis, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have no choice.

Bell High School students work with conflict minerals jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Bell High School students may have an influence on American manufacturing legislation, thanks to a project with Claigan Environmental Inc. The company’s vice-president Bruce Calder is a Bell grad and wants to help make sure minerals are ethically sourced. So, when he set out to prove it was possible to trace where minerals were coming from, he turned to his Alma matter. Conflict minerals – similar to the more widely-known blood diamonds – are mined in conditions of conflict and human rights abuses, most namely from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Recent legislation in the U.S. called the Dodd-Frank Act prohibits the use of conflict minerals in the manufacture of goods. The law is being challenged by the National Association of Manufacturers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “Manufacturers are saying

that following the legislation is impossible,” Calder said. “So, I figured if I could get a class of high school students to source materials it would show that it should be possible for these giant corporations to do it.”

In the Kivu Region there are 48 rapes per hour. BRUCE CALDER CLAIGAN ENVIRONMENTAL INC.

Calder asked students to create a dataset with a list of 134 smelters, some of whom openly admit to sourcing material from the Congo. “Then they helped compile the data and amalgamate,” Calder said. It really was a matter of contacting people. Some of whom are already known to buy from Rwanda, Burundi and the DRC.” Calder said Claigan is well

known for their work detecting carcinogens, so when the issue of conflict minerals came up, it was a natural area for them to branch out. Calder said it’s important to remember the human rights abuses from the Rwandan Genocide, much of the conflict in the Congo stems from that period. “In the Kivu Region there are 48 rapes per hour,” Calder said. Calder was invited to Washington to advise on the Dodd-Frank Act when it was being put into legislation. “Claigan is quoted something like 18 times in the law,” Calder said. Rodney Moors, the teacher of the Grade 10 class that worked with Claigan said most of his students were already aware of the issues surrounding conflict minerals. The project gave them a real-world application for the skills they have already learned. “It’s nice for them to see the end result of collecting the data,” he said.

Bridge completion date to be finalized in April Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - The Strandherd Armstrong bridge will come in on budget, but it likely won’t be on time, said GloucesterSouth Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches. The $48-million project was delayed when the original contractor went into receivership last March. Work has also been delayed because the welding didn’t meet city specifications. “There are really stringent tests, using things like ultrasound,” Desroches said, adding engineers have told him it’s not uncommon for the welding to be done, tested and redone. The bridge over the Rideau River – between Strandherd Drive and Earl Armstrong Road – and each of the three bridge arches is composed of 10 pieces that must be welded together. “We won’t sacrifice residents’ safety for a photo op,” Desroches said, adding residents would be apprised of the new completion date sometime

Gloucester South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches said residents will have wait until later this month to learn when the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge will be completed. this month. The original completion deadline was Aug. 31. With the delays it could be months later. The city holds a $23-million performance bond on the project and any penalties would be the responsibility of the bonding company. Delays will cost the bonding company $5,000 per day. Desroches said the city is putting pressure on the con-

tractor to finish the work because the bridge is central to the city’s transportation master plan. “Light-rail construction could be delayed if there aren’t the proper detours in place,” he said. Despite the ticking clock, there were still be a delay. “It’s unlikely we will be able to make up the time by cutting other areas,” Desroches said.

We Day inspires students to seek change Eddie Rwema Eddie.rwema@metroland.com

Free the Children Founder Craig Kielburger launches National We Day in Ottawa at Hillcrest High School on April 3. The event will take place on April 29 at Gatineau’s Robert Guertin Arena.

IMPACT OF WE DAY

what they learned at We Day into their schools, clubs and classrooms,” said Salvino. We Day is an initiative of Free the Children, that connects renowned speakers and performers with thousands of elementary and high school students and educators in an inspirational setting to learn about some of the pressing local and global issues.

R0011969873_0314

EMC news - Hillcrest High School students received a taste of what to expect when 4,000 students from across Canada descend on the National Capital Region to attend this year’s first National We Day event at Gatineau’s Robert Guertin Arena on April 29. Free the Children Founder Craig Kielburger was at Hillcrest on April 3 to announce the official lineup for National We Day, which includes actor and activist Martin Sheen, Assembly of First Nations national chief Shawn Atleo, Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall, singer and songwriter My Name is Kay and Canadian pop-rock band Neverest among others. The We Day celebration is free to attend but students must earn their way in by committing one local and one global service action. That is exactly what Hillcrest students Caitlin Salvino, 17, and Rebecca Wong, 16 did to earn tickets that allowed them to attend the 2011 We Day event in Toronto. “The thing that shocked me the most about We Day was the fact that in the Air Canada Centre, there were 18,000 just-as-inspired youths ready to go back home and make this world a better place,” said Salvino. The two girls are part of the school’s Impact Club that has spent the past two years raising money towards building a school in Ecuador through Free the Children’s AdoptA-Village program. “After We Day, on the bus ride back to Ottawa, all I remember is that everyone was passionately talking about the fundraisers they were going to do when we got home and how they were going to bring back

Day line-up launch at Hillcrest is a testament to the great things Hillcrest students are doing. “This is an incredible chance to celebrate all of the work, which Hillcrest has done in terms of getting the students engaged around social justice and environmental issues,” said Frame. “This is a great day to spread the enthusiasm and the passion for the upcoming We Day.” She said for the past five years, the school community has worked hard to make the school a positive place where students can see themselves represented. “There is a strong sense of pride about the idea that this is spreading and for the students feeling that they are part of this growing movement,” said Frame. We hope the We Day in Ottawa will bring that passion and enthusiasm to more schools, clubs, and make them feel like positive contributors to the community.” Her comments were echoed by the school trustee Bronwyn Funiciello, who said that the leadership demonstrated by Hillcrest students through their activities in the local and global community has been amazing. “For me it gives me some really sense of comfort that our future is in good hands,” said Funiciello.

Wong and Salvino with eight other students are hoping to raise $8,500 to reach their goal of building a school in Ecuador. “We’ve been able to raise awareness in our school about the issues faced by millions of children around the world,” said Wong. Donna Frame, one of the teachers supervising the project, said the We

For the past five years, youth have raised $26 million for 900 local and global causes, said Free the Children’s Kielburger. “We Day for us, is the answer for the questions we hear so often - And the question we hear is…I am only one person, what difference can I make?” said Kielburger. “When you walk into a stadium

at the end of this month with 4,000 other students who have earned their way to be there … you know you’re not alone.” Keilburger, 30, so far the youngest recipient of the Order of Canada and the author of nine books, said students across Canada have volunteered 5.1 million hours. “The most amazing stat about We Day is our alumni. Seventy-nine per cent vote year after year in federal elections. It shows youth are inspired when they’re given issues to care about,’ he said. Thirty four schools from in the Ottawa area participated in Free the Children’s We Scare Hunger campaign last year, collecting food for local food banks. The lineup includes: • Martin Sheen – Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor and activist • Chief Shawn Atleo - national chief of the Assembly of First Nations • Kardinal Offishall - Canadian rapper and record producer • Karl Wolf - international recording artist, Socan & MTV Europe Music Award winner • Shawn Desman - Platinum-selling, JUNO and MMVA Award-winning recording artist • Cast members from the television show Degrassi • My Name is Kay - Canadian singer and songwriter • A performance by ONE DROP, a Cirque du Soleil Founder’s initiative • Frank O’Dea - Second Cup founder, Canadian entrepreneur, humanitarian and author • Neverest - Canadian pop-rock band • Jillian Vanstone - principal dancer at the National Ballet of Canada • Rob Stewart - award winning filmmaker of Sharkwater and Revolution • Tyler Shaw - 2012 Coca-Cola MuchMusic Video Award winner.

EMC news - Members of the Ottawa community came together on the steps of Parliament Hill on March 27 in advance of the first official World Autism Awareness Day. In front of those speaking at the event was â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Faces of Autismâ&#x20AC;? banner, which featured 88 faces of individuals from across Canada who suffer from autism. The words one in 88 were written at the bottom of the banner, referring to the number of children diagnosed with autism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a statistic that should really get our attention,â&#x20AC;? said Suzanne Jacobson, founder of QuickStart, a charity that offers free services to parents who have children with autism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number of people being diagnosed with autism is growing tremendously.â&#x20AC;? Jaden Lake, 17, is one of those children diagnosed with autism. His father, EdmontonMill Woods-Beaumont MP Mike Lake, brought Jaden up with him to microphone as he spoke to the crowd of about 100. Lake spoke about how his son studies in a Grade 11 class, volunteers at an Edmonton library and participates in musical theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the real blessings of my time here is really how colleagues from all parties have come together in support of Jaden,â&#x20AC;? said Lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Politicians from all parties care about this issue and come together around this issue.â&#x20AC;? Bill S-206 or the World Autism Awareness Day Act,

TYLER COSTELLO/METROLAND

Tom Beveridge of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa holds up a sign for World Autism Awareness Day on the steps of Parliament Hill on March 27. introduced by Liberal Senator Jim Munson and unanimously passed by all parties, made April 2 the official day for Canada to recognize autism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more people that are aware, the better,â&#x20AC;? said Scott Wilson, who attended with his son Cameron, who was diagnosed with autism three weeks ago. Wilson brought his son to Emerging Minds, a private treatment centre for children, to be checked for autism after growing impatient with the waitlist at CHEO. Having a similar experience with her grandson is what led Jacobson to found QuickStart.

Ottawa West Ball Hockey League

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have come to recognize that the current system isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily the best system and that we need to work together to be able to serve more kids and be able to reach more people,â&#x20AC;? said Alex Munter, CEO of CHEO, as he spoke to those gathered. Munter, who has been with CHEO for 18 months, praised the provincial and federal government for funding autism research. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Officially we start moving forward,â&#x20AC;? said Jacobson, referring to World Autism Awareness Day being recognized by Canadian law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe momentum will increase.â&#x20AC;?

Faith takes soccer pro to West Virginia soccer club Tyler Costello tyler.costello@metroland.com

EMC News – Faith has led a former All Saints Catholic High School soccer standout to West Virginia where he will hit the pitch this season for the King’s Warriors, a Christian soccer club. Odaine Demar finished the previous season with Kingston FC after playing a handful of games for Gamla Upsala Sportklubb, a second division professional soccer team in Sweden. He was forced to return to Canada after he was unable to obtain a work visa in Sweden. Upon finishing the season with Kingston, he prepared for a return to Europe, where he had several opportunities including in Sweden, by training with the West Ottawa Soccer Club. But Demar chose to forego his opportunities in Europe and return to North America after receiving an e-mail from the King’s Warriors. “They seemed like my best option because of what they offered me both as a player and spiritually,” said Demar, who had originally contacted the Warriors after feeling he was neglecting his faith while playing professionally in Sweden. “I had a lot of time to think back on my year and I felt my faith was weakening which led to me doing some research on the Warriors,” he said. The King’s Warriors are located in Southern West Virginia and compete in the United Soccer League’s Premier Development League, a league that includes the Ottawa Fury. “There are some very good players in the league … but I know what I am capable of when I work hard, so if I assert my self immediately I will have a good season” he said. Although Demar will be able to develop his talent with the West Virginian team, it was their religious work that made them appealing, he

said. “We try to win all the games that we can, but get out into the community to give the good news of Jesus Christ,” said Tim Donelli, who works media relations for the Warriors. He said about 90 per cent of their players are Christian. The players, who study the Bible and pray together, often speak in churches and help out in the community. The club works in tandem with Countryside Baptist Church in Forest Hill, West Virginia. A big focus is on serving and helping others in the community, said Donelli. “I feel this teaches us that the main focus is not on winning games but giving back, helping others and improving as men of God,” said Demar. “It’s a blessing,” he said, “I was born into the church. I still have very fond memories of going to church every Sunday as a little kid in Jamaica with my grandmother. “Being a pro athlete and staying religious is very challenging but finding a place where I can focus on both makes playing the game even more enjoyable,” he said. Demar said he will continue to work until he is given a chance at playing for Canada’s national team and plans to return to Europe after the completion of this season. “I hope to continue playing and having an impact on and off the field for a very long time,” he said.

Odaine Demar, a former All Saints Catholic High School student, will be playing this year with the King’s Warriors in West Virginia, a Christian based soccer club. FILE

Tormentor’s prank helped build character, Mother says Fateful walk home from school cements Marguirite’s spoiled-child reputation

MARY COOK

I

Mary Cook’s Memories

t wasn’t only that Marguirite was an only child and spoiled beyond belief, but she had a way about her that riled everyone at Northcote School. Often I couldn’t pin down exactly what it was I didn’t like about the young girl. But there were times it was all too obvious that Marguirite felt about me, exactly as I felt about her. Take the day she decided to walk home from school the long way. She could have just hopped down the road to her house about a kilometre away, had she chosen. But that day she decided she would go around the concession and walk to the Northcote side road with my little friend Joyce and me. We could have easily done without her company. There were things we wanted to talk about – the new boy in senior fourth for instance – that we wouldn’t dare say a word about in

front of Marguirite because we might as well write it on the blackboard for the whole school to see. Marguirite couldn’t keep a thing to herself. It was a day I will not soon forget. I can even remember what I had on that day, which had a lot to do with why I remember the details so well. FLOUR BAGS

Mother had made me a blouse out of bleached flour bag material. To take away the look that it once held flour, Mother had dyed it a bright green with Ritz dye. That day I had on this freshly dyed blouse over a white skirt which had come in a hand-me-down box from my aunt in St. Catharines. Mother thought it was far too early in the season for a white skirt, but I prevailed on her saying Marguirite had been in white for days. Well, that day, as we

headed out after school, Joyce and I tried to ignore Marguirite as we walked along the Northcote side road. The ditches were full of water from the heavy rains we had that spring and occasionally we would stop and kick small stones into the water or coax a frog off the gravel. Marguirite said she had better things to do with her time than talk to frogs and toss stones into a ditch – Joyce suggested she hurry on ahead of us and do whatever that was. My friend and I had on black brogue shoes – Marguirite’s were patent leather and they soon were covered with sand and dust. We pointed this fact out to her, saying we bet her mother would sure be mad when she got home and saw the mess of her good school

footwear. Marguirite assured us her mother never got mad at her. Joyce rolled her eyes skyward. We didn’t believe her for a minute. I couldn’t wait to get to the end of the side road so that this pest would leave us and head off in the direction that would take her on to her house. What if Marguirite decided to walk down past Briscoe’s General Store? That would mean she would be with us almost all the way home. The thought just about gave me a sick stomach. LATE FOR SUPPER

Joyce suggested to Marguirite that she would be late for supper if she walked with us much farther. That didn’t matter to her, she assured us. Her mother would keep supper warm for her. It was

sure different in our house. We better be there when it was time to sit down at the kitchen table or we didn’t eat. She was really getting on my nerves. I decided the best thing to do so that I could endure the walk to the crossroad was to pretend she wasn’t there. I squatted down on my haunches at the edge of the road, peering into the deep dark green water of the ditch. I told Joyce I could see tadpoles, which of course I couldn’t. Joyce squatted too. We squinted into the water pretending to be deeply engrossed in what was in the water-filled ditches. Well, right out of the blue, Marguirite’s foot hit the middle of my back and within seconds she connected with Joyce sending us both sprawling. We went headlong into the water. It wasn’t deep, but we came up spluttering and rubbing our eyes. All we could see of Marguirite was those spindly legs bolting down the Northcote side road. Joyce was out of the ditch first. She held her hand down towards me

and helped me onto the side of the road. I could see Joyce staring at me. I followed the direction of her eyes. Great streams of green dye were running from the home made blouse, into the white handme-down skirt! I was starting to look like a patchwork quilt. I looked down the road to see if I could catch up to Marguirite. She was just a dot on the Northcote side road. There was nothing to do but head for home. By the time I hit the kitchen door, my clothes were dry and the green water mixed with weeds from the ditch and mud from the road, were caked to my legs. Only then did I burst into tears. Mother stripped my clothes and even though it wasn’t yet Saturday night, I was given a bath in the copper tub before supper. All the time I lamented about the girl I hated with a passion, but once again Mother called my ordeal character building. I told Mother, after my ordeal with Marguirite, I thought I had had just about all the character building I could stand in one lifetime.

Two Ottawans added to Sunshine List Nealry 1,200 city employees at the $100,000 salary mark John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news - The City of Ottawa has almost 1,200 employees who make at least $100,000. In the Ottawa area, the municipal, health, education and legal areas continue to dominate the Sunshine List. The annual list of Ontario Public Service and related employees paid $100,000 or more by taxpayers was released late last week, showing 88,412 workers were paid at least $100,000 in 2012, up about 11 per cent over 2011. The municipalities and services sector accounted for 38 per cent of the increase province-wide, or about 3,300 employees. However, in Ottawa, the number of city employees

on the list rose by only two, to 1,189. The highest paid city employee, manager Kent Kirkpatrick, earned $350,859. Deputy city managers Steve Kanellakos and Nancy Schepers made $309,239 and $293,616 respectively. The general manager of the city’s transit services John Manconi earned $242,134 in 2012, while recently appointed chief of police Charles Bordeleau made $237,786. Other prominent Ontario public servants in the Ottawa area on the list include Ottawa Hospital president Dr. Jack Kitts ($701,281), University of Ottawa Heart Institute president Dr. Robert Roberts ($565,882), Carleton University president Roseann Runte ($404,569), University of Ottawa president

Allan Rock ($396,303), Algonquin College president Robert Gillett ($365,546), Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario CEO Alex Munter ($331,673), Ottawa medical officer of health Dr. Isra Levy ($319,067), Ottawa-Carleton Public School Board director of education Jennifer Adams ($238,062), Ottawa Catholic School Board director of education Julian Hanlon ($236,130) and Mayor Jim Watson ($168,657). In releasing the list, the provincial government noted that despite the increase in members in the $100,000 club, the average salary declined, dropping slightly to $127,525 from $127,566 in 2011.

No more TomaHawks, Ottawa basketball team renamed SkyHawks Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

R0012011988

EMC news – Ottawa’s professional basketball team has a new name. After receiving complaints the original choice, the TomaHawks, was culturally insensitive, the club retracted the name and went back to the drawing board. Team staff announced last week the new franchise will be named the Ottawa SkyHawks, and will keep the hawks logo used in the original branding. “We wanted to instill a very important value, respect,” said Bytown Sports and Entertainment president Gus Takkale, who is from Orléans. “It’s with that value that we want to move forward.” On hand for the announcement two Aboriginal chiefs, Chief Kirby Whiteduck of the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan and Chief Gilbert Whiteduck of the Kitigan Zibi. “We believe they really heard the message of the people,” said Chief Gilbert Whiteduck. After the announcement, Chief Kirby Whiteduck said

he supported the new moniker, but wasn’t opposed to the original TomaHawks name. The SkyHawks brand still has to go through the trademarking process, which can take six to eight months. Takkale said the name change is good because it has a similar look and feel, and the team can still use the hawk element. The organization reached out to fans on social media to see what they supported before announcing the new team name. Now that the team has a name, they can move forward to hire a head coach by the start of the summer, and then move into recruiting players. Takkale said that the team will look to local talent first, and try and attract other National Capital players in the United States to play. “We want to see how we can get these players to come back home,” he said. The final roster will be announced in October, with the National Basketball League games starting on November 2013.

Museum of Nature heads to Arctic for latest exhibit steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news - A vast portion of our country’s landmass lies far removed from the gaze of most Canadians, which is why the Museum of Nature wants to shed light on it. The Canadian Museum of Nature launched its latest exhibit – Extraordinary Arctic – on April 3, allowing visitors to explore the landscape, wildlife, culture and history of the Canadian Arctic. The exhibit coincides with the 100th anniversary of the start of the Canadian Arctic Exhibition of 1913, a fiveyear voyage by government scientists that mapped and catalogued the geography, wildlife and culture of the region. Calling the expedition “an important milestone in Canadian science and exploration,” museum president and CEO Meg Beckel said about 60 per cent of the museum’s research and collections programs have an Arctic focus, often with national and international partners. “These collaborations provide insights and discoveries

about the indigenous plants and animals from these vast parts of Canada,” she said. Beckel said that last year the museum launched a fiveyear plan to “inspire and engage audiences” in Canada and overseas. The end of this initiative will coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, when a permanent gallery devoted to the Arctic will be opened. FILM PREMIERE

The series of events and activities planned for the month include the Ottawa premiere of the 2011 National Film Board production Vanishing Point on April 11, a tale of two Inuit communities in Canada and Greenland. Weekend activities will serve to engage children and their parents. Among them, an interactive igloo-building activity will allow kids to experience the precision needed to build the traditional Inuit structure, using pre-formed foam blocks. Kids can also learn some of the Inuktitut language, learn traditional throat singing, drumming and dancing, as

Having issues with the local wildlife? You are not alone. As urban development encroaches on previously untamed areas, more human-wildlife conflicts result. People are frequently confronted with many wildlife species, including raccoons, groundhogs, squirrels, skunks, and a variety of birds. These animals have largely managed to adapt well to our presence. Humans, on the other hand, are still mastering this living arrangement. It is important for people to understand the need for effective, lasting, and humane solutions to occasional conflicts with wildlife. If you find an injured wild animal that is bleeding, has a broken limb, is walking in circles or falling over when walking, or another obvious injury, please contact Ottawa Humane Society’s Emergency Services at 613-725-1532. For large wildlife, such as deer, moose and bear, please call Ottawa Police Services at 613-236-1222. If a wild animal does not show any signs of injury, then it is best to leave it alone. Wildlife issues are temporary problems and there are solutions. It seems daunting, but if you work out a solution, you can make sure you never have this problem again. Property owners are responsible for dealing with their wildlife situation humanely and legally. There are solutions and tips

PET OF THE WEEK

Millie is a spayed female, agouti and white Rex mix who loves to frolic, jump and play. She is about 7 months old, and was surrendered to the shelter by her owner on March 14. Millie is looking for a loving home with lots of room to run, great toys to keep her busy and chew toys to help keep her teeth fit and trim. She will need an owner who is ready to accommodate a rabbit that is still growing! She will need a larger cage that she can grow into, and plenty of time to play outside of her cage!

available at www.ottawahumane.ca to get the animals to relocate on their own. Please be advised that although you are only seeing one animal, it may not be alone. The birthing season runs from late February to early October, and the babies are helpless when first born and not yet able to leave their nest or den with mom. If you scare the mother away, she may abandon her young. It is critical not to trap young inside, as they will perish, possibly falling between walls and requiring expensive drywall removal and causing very bad odours if they die in inaccessible areas. Many birds fly into windows at this time of year. The sun is low in the sky and causes some unusual reflections. If a bird hits your window, confine the bird in a ventilated box, with a covered hot water bottle in the bottom. The box should be closed, which helps slow down the bird’s metabolism, and placed in a warm area of the house that is isolated from people and pets. Leave the bird alone for one hour. After one hour, they can take the box outside and open it. It may take a few moments for the bird’s eyes to adjust to the light. If it flies away – perfect! The bird was simply stunned. If it does not fly away it needs care. Contact the Wild Bird Care Centre at 613-828-2849. If you have further questions about wild animals, you may contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext. 262, or send an email to ohs@ottawahumane.ca.

David Gray, a researcher, filmmaker and historian who serves on a Parks Canada committee for Northern national parks, was on hand for the launch and will present in-

tic archipelago – starting in July. Accompanying him will be five other team members, plus local guides. “We have a ship’s captain, a (crewmember) who’s also a descendent of one of the men who died on the (1913) expedition, so he’s going to look for his great-great uncle’s remains,” said Gray. “Another woman is also a descendent of an expedition member; her and two cousins are going. They’re looking for the family connection, the genealogical connection.” The expedition will stop at 10 sites visited by the 1913 expedition. The first point – Sachs Harbour – is named after the ship Mary Sachs, which was beached on the remote coast during the expedition. Gray’s first visit to the north, in 1968, was to study the rebounding population of muskox on Banks Island. He has been back to the North, in one capacity or another, almost every year since. The full list of Extraordinary Arctic events and dates at the Canadian Museum of Nature can be found online at nature.ca/arctic.

City codifies rules for public-private partnerships laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Secrecy shouldn’t be part of the deal when it comes to partnerships between the city and private companies, a community representa-

JACQUES ROBERT Real Estate Lawyer Practicing since 1987

tive told the city’s de facto executive committee last week. The city formalized its policy for public-private partnerships – or P3s, as they are known – during an April 2 meeting of the finance and economic development committee. For the most part, the rules codify what the city has already been doing when it comes to arrangements for companies to build and/or operate municipal facilities such as arenas, said Jeff Byrne, the city’s procurement manager. The policy also adds a requirement to report

back to committee and council about the results of the partnership. Bob Brocklebank, a representative of the Federation of Citizens’ Associations and the Glebe Community Association, told the committee that the city needs to be open and provide as much information as possible to convince the public that a partnership is the best idea. “If a P3 is truly better than a traditional approach, let the public see that is the case,” he said. “Being open about it will reduce the strife that has plagued past projects.” Brocklebank said he has no “ideological objections” to P3s, but the commu-

nity needs to be fully engaged in the process – both before and after a project is approved and completed – to ensure success. The committee supported an addition from Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans to include a line requiring details about proposed P3s to be released to the public for consultation and information as soon as possible in the process. The formalized policy came out of a request from the city auditor general’s office in 2006. The audit required the city to boost accountability, solidify the business case for partnerships and improve how the results are reported to councillors and the public. Clarifying the roles and responsibilities of city staff in that process was also suggested.
