News – Despite an early exit in the playoffs this year, the Nepean Raiders Minor Peewee B Black team still spent some one-on-one time with hockey’s highest honour. The team was rewarded for its volunteer work this year by being selected by the Scotiabank Bright Future program to have Lord Stanley make an unexpected appearance at their year-end party at the Nepean Sportsplex on April 30. The look on the players’ faces when they entered the room containing the cup was one of pure disbelief.

News - City officials were caught off guard on April 29 when Via Rail sent out a press release accusing two OC Transpo buses of failing to stop at rail crossing signals and damaging the gate.

The alleged incidents happened on April 25 and April 28. But after Via met with city officials, Mayor Jim Watson called on the company to correct what he said was misinformation Via put out to the media. Via said the second incident caused damage to the gate when it lowered onto the

bus, sending the signal into fail-safe mode. But “new information� determined that the bus did not make contact with the rail crossing gate, Watson wrote in a letter to Via CEO Steve Del Bosco on April 29. The fail-safe mode was triggered because another crossing gate at the same intersection was stuck out of position because it made contact with the device’s windbreak. See BARRHAVEN, page 3

Barrhaven residents don’t need spat between city, Via: Deans Continued from page 1

This was one of the reasons given for re-occurring signal malfunctions when Via gave an update to the city the week before. Via conceded on May 1 that the bus may not have caused the signal malfunction on April 28, but in a press release the company insisted a video shows the north gate at Fallowfield Road hitting the bus, which had stopped beyond the stop line. The video then shows the bus backing up to the stop line, Via said. Via’s April 28 press release said it has written to Watson and OC Transpo general manager John Manconi asking them to investigate the incidents and “take appropriate measures to avoid their re-occurance.” On May 1 Via re-iterated that it is “unacceptable” for buses to breach the stop line at rail crossings. OC Transpo began investigating the incidents after they came to light through the news media, but it’s the first time anyone at the city had heard of them, said Coun. Diane Deans, chairwoman of the transit commission. “OC Transpo in now investigating these claims,” she said on April 29. “It’s very important to us that we secure all the facts.” After expressing hope about improvements in communication between Via and the city last week, when Via officials came to Ottawa to give a briefing about the causes of ongoing signal malfunctions in Barrhaven, Deans said the way the bus incidents were communicated was a bit of a setback. “I’m just going to view this Didn’t get your

War Amps key tags in the mail? Order them today!

as a hiccup to our communications and move on,” she said, adding that Via officials agreed to meet with representatives from the city on May 30. “The people of Barrhaven don’t need a spat between the city and Via,” she said. “What they need is a real solution to a major safety concern they have.” There was no suggestion of OC Transpo buses contributing to rail signal malfunctions last week during the highly anticipated technical briefing with Via and it’s signal contractor, RailTerm. Aaron Branston of RailTerm said the key reasons for the ongoing and increasing number of malfunctions at six crossings in Barrhaven were: shifting of the tracks due to excessive water and salt accumulation in the gravel bed they sit on; vibrations from passing trains causing the signals to re-engage after a train passes through; and interference from an increase in electrical loads on nearby hydro lines.

Final results from a review provided by an independent engineering firm were expected to be delivered to Via on April 30. Two weeks ago, Transport Canada lifted the safety order it had placed on four of the six Barrhaven rail crossings that have been malfunctioning. Employees are still stationed at crossings at Woodroffe Avenue and the Transitway and train speed restrictions there remain in effect. Transport Canada’s Rail Safety Week began on April 27. This year, Transport Canada’s grade crossing improvement program will provide $9.2 million for improvements at more than 600 railway crossings across Canada.

OC Transpo is investigating Via Rail’s accusation that two buses failed to stop at the stop line at Fallowfield Road on April 25 and April 28, damaging the crossing gate.

OVER 400 VARIETIES OF K-CUPS!

Contest Winners In its first-ever Bright Ideas contest, Hydro Ottawa awarded $1,000 to two local schools to put towards classroom resources. Earlier this year, Hydro Ottawa introduced Bright Ideas, an electricity safety and conservation contest, to Ottawa-area elementary school students to help promote a culture of electricity safety and conservation. The Bright Ideas contest was divided into two age-appropriate parts: one aimed at students in JK to Grade 4, and the other for students in Grades 5 to 8. The contest started in the classroom, through lessons and learning activities. Students were encouraged to become ambassadors, sharing information and starting discussions with their parents, friends and neighbours as they completed their challenge. Knoxdale Public School and Katimavik Elementary School each received a grand prize in the junior and senior categories respectively. Five other classes were awarded a pizza lunch as a runner-up prize for showing their commitment to the community and environment.

Senior category grand prize winner - Katimavik Public School grade 8 students with their teacher Carissa Blaseg.

‘This is the cool part of the job’: keeper of the Stanley Cup Continued from page 1

“I thought it would be one of the (Sens) players or Spartacat, not the Stanley Cup,” said Nathan Lassenba, captain of the team. “I think they (the team) are feeling pretty happy, pretty pumped up that we get to see the Cup and each other one last time as a team,” said Lassenba. “That is the cool part of the job,” said Mike Bolt, keeper of the Cup with the Hockey Hall of Fame, about the kids’ reaction to their big surprise. “Whether it is a Peewee team like this, their parents or even

the NHL players who compete for it … those guys are as star struck by the Cup as any of us are.” The team was selected for its work volunteering in the community. They participated in both a food drive as well as a toy drive for the Santa Toy Parade this year. “These teams have done something great on the ice but something even greater off the ice so it is a nice reward to bring the Cup to them,” said Bolt. In order to fundraise for the toy drive, players did work around their communities for money which was then used

in a shopping spree to buy toys, which were donated to the parade. “They worked really hard this year; on the ice we push them hard and we have fun, but right from the start of the year we asked them to be good people off the ice,” said Marc Frappier, head coach of the team. Still, like a true Ottawa hockey fan, when Lassenba was asked if he would have preferred it if a player had come instead, he said, “It depends which player, if it was Spezza, Karlsson or Neil, like wow, but I did enjoy the Cup.”

Crack down on those who fail to stoop and scoop To the editor:

Re: Stoop-and-scoop this spring, editorial, April 24, Orléans News. I live in the Pineview community and walk the paths daily for exercise. The issue of un-scooped dog poo is an all-year one, not one for spring only. We see even greater deposits on and along walking paths in winter as both owners and animals avoid the off-path deep snow. The park is a dog latrine, seriously curtailing its wider use as a picnic/recreation site.

Your call for more education and peer pressure from responsible owners who pick up after their pets is reasonable. However, these measures are ignored by habitual offenders. Point out the posted signs for pets to be leashed and to stoop and scoop and you are met with threats and belligerence. The scale of the problem is immense; all sizes of animals are involved as the deposits show. There is also an interest-

ing bit of pet owner behavior as there seems to be a number of owners who pick up their pets’ poo in plastic bags but instead of taking the bagged deposit away or even placing them in the available garbage bins, they drop them on and along the pathways. It would be a lesser evil if they were to leave the poo where it was deposited. I believe the situation is such as to warrant deterrent measures now. It has been very bad for years. I believe also that only the

recalcitrant and irresponsible miscreants should be targeted, fined and made to pick up the poo. They blatantly disregard the posted signs. I am advocating two measures to this end: the vigilance of the bylaw enforcement agents and the use of cameras. Your editorial states that bylaw enforcement officers “have better things to do than stake out parks on the offchance a bad owner will offend in plain view.” That statement begs the

question: What are the better things? Is the subject of un-scooped poo relegated to a lower order of importance? Dogs running unleashed and threatening people and other pets, litter, and people using and abandoning shopping carts are additional things requiring, but not receiving, the attention of bylaw officers. When and where do the officers look? On any given day at the Pineview area parks, especial-

ly as dusk comes, one is sure to see dogs depositing with no owner pick-up. How else can one account for the heavy and widespread deposits? The city uses cameras in other situations as effective tools of law enforcement. It could also use them judiciously and strategically in our parks to great effect to address the issue of pooping with no scooping (and, simultaneously, other misdemeanors). Derek Oudit Pineview

Enforce animal control bylaw preventing aggression. Spaying and neutering not only helps eliminate behavioural problems, but also prevents many medical issues. The large number of unlicensed dogs in Ottawa poses, as the record clearly reveals, a threat to public health and safety. It would be easy to argue that unlicensed animals pose as much a threat to public health as second hand smoke. The reason the city’s antismoking bylaw worked is because it was enforced. Failure by the city to enforce this bylaw constitutes blatant discrimination against

those responsible owners who do choose to license their dogs - and smacks of poor governance. The animal control bylaw must be enforced or it will not achieve its purpose. The challenge resides with the city to enforce this bylaw. Providing the resources to enforce animal control regulations will help this community protect its residents from aggressive dogs and their irresponsible owners. Can we expect this to happen?

Columnist’s vision of universal child care not suitable in free society To the editor:

Re: “Universal childcare is an economic issue,� column, April 24, KKS. Columnist Brynna Leslie begins reasonably by stating how much she values the care only she, as the mother, could provide to her children, and I completely agree there is no one on Earth more suited to raising her children. When parents plan to have children they must decide how they will handle the time and financial responsibilities of giving birth and two decades of financial support. A decade later, however, she decides that her children are no longer the top priority and that her job is more important, so third-party child

care would be better. The problem is that “affordable� is just a euphemism for using the force of the government so she wants to make someone else pay. This would absolve her of the responsibility she took on voluntarily as a parent, making anyone except her responsible for her choices. Leslie incorrectly states that parents are often forced to make a choice between family and their careers. This is a clear misuse of the term “force�, which means the initiation or threat of physical harm to another person. If force was defined according to Leslie’s usage, it would mean force is applied in any situation where a human be-

ing is required to choose between alternative actions. In this situation, Leslie clearly made a completely voluntary choice before having children, knowing that as parents’ priorities must be set and that you cannot have something just by wishing for it. No one forced her to have a child, much less three of them. Babies do not simply “arrive� as she states, but are planned. The fact she had very little net take-home pay after working at home and making childcare arrangements is a direct consequence of her choice to have three children and wanting to work at the same time.

This ofďŹ cial plan amendment applies city-wide. PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT This OfďŹ cial Plan amendment is proposed as an Omnibus Amendment as it comprises a number of diverse changes to the OfďŹ cial Plan summarised as follows: 1. Corrections to policy changes made by OPA No. 150 and other technical changes OPA No. 150 included a number of administrative and other minor errors that are being corrected by this amendment. Other technical changes correct references to other documents or legislation, such as, Provincial guidelines for stationary noise sources. 2. Source-water Protection, Noise and Interpretation Policies and Schedule K A new Schedule K was previously circulated for comments and will now be incorporated into this amendment with new text that is proposed for Section 4.8.2 Wellhead Protection. The Environmental Noise policies in Section 4.8.7 have been updated to remove outdated references and in Section 5.4 the Interpretation policies for the Plan will identify the City’s “settlement areasâ€?. 3. Transportation changes Changes to the City’s Transportation Master Plan occurred after adoption of OPA No. 150 which now necessitates the replacement of Schedules C and J. In addition, recent Environmental Assessments for major roads have recommended different rights-of-way widths and additional changes that could not be included in OPA 150, which now need to be reected in Annex 1 of the OfďŹ cial Plan. FURTHER INFORMATION To view the application or any information or materials related to the application, please contact the undersigned planner, or go to the City’s Website ottawa.ca/ opomnibus. SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS The City of Ottawa would like to receive any comments concerning this proposal. Please forward comments to the undersigned planner via mail, telephone, facsimile or e-mail by 6 June 2014. Comments received will be considered in the evaluation of the proposal. If you wish to be notiďŹ ed of the adoption of the proposed OfďŹ cial Plan amendment, or of the refusal of a request to amend the ofďŹ cial plan, you must make a written request to the City of Ottawa.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting (meeting date, time and location to be determined) or make written submissions to the City of Ottawa before the proposed ofďŹ cial plan amendment is adopted, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to do so.

The vicious mauling of a 14-month-old child on Sunday, April 27, in Nepean will again raise many issues and concerns about aggressive dogs, and rightfully so. One solution to reducing dog attacks resides in the licensing of all dogs. All dogs kept in the city, and, in-fact, in all municipalities across the province, must have a valid dog license. However, it is estimated only about 20 per cent of dogs in this city are licensed. And unlicensed dogs are less likely to be spayed or neutered, critical factors in

Derailing the blame game

T

he city is waging a war of words with Via Rail over recent malfunctions at Barrhaven rail crossings and, unfortunately, the fallout is public safety. Via fired the latest broadside last week, sending out a press release that accused two OC Transpo buses of failing to stop at rail crossings on April 25 and 28, and in one instance, damaging a crossing gate. The accusation caught the city off guard, leaving council scrambling for more information about the two alleged incidents. Diane Deans, the chairwoman of the city’s transit commission, said it was the first time anyone at city hall had heard about it. The city later met with representatives from Via and Railterm to review both alleged incidents and concluded that while the Fallowfield crossing did go into fail-safe mode on April 28, the incident wasn’t caused by the crossing gate making contact with an OC Transpo bus, according to a letter written by Mayor Jim Watson on April 29. A statement released by Via on May 1 concurred with that assessment, but maintained that the buses in both incidents “stopped beyond the stop line,� and indicated that “these types of breaches are unacceptable.� It’s a little disturbing that the city first learned about Via’s findings through the media, but hardly

surprising, considering the history between the two following a collision between an OC Transpo bus and a Via train at a Barrhaven crossing last September, which resulted in the deaths of six people. Over the ensuing months, the city received reports of major issues with signals at six Via crossings in Barrhaven. Frustrated by the number of signal malfunctions, council soon started criticizing Via, with the mayor threatening to ask the Ministry of Transportation to intervene and force Via to do its job. What we have here is failure to communicate. The mayor said both sides need to stop playing the blame game. A good start would be for the city to find ways to enforce its bylaw requiring bus drivers to stop at signalled rail crossings, instead of pointing accusatory fingers at Via. That this is an election year and council is spooked over the potential for legal fallout from the collision seem to only fan the flames of councillors’ desperation to avoid being caught in the fallout. For its part, Via must get its act together and fix the signals at rail crossings in Barrhaven, and not spend so much effort seeking a scapegoat. Both sides must find ways to improve communication – we all end up losing by playing the blame game.

Is it time to take a stand against sitting?

S

itting is the new smoking, we’ve been reading. Incessantly we’ve been reading it. So incessantly that “sitting is the new smoking� is the new annoying cliche. Still, there’s no denying it. Expert after expert tells us, through our helpful news media, that excessive sitting – which is to say, the sitting that we all do – is responsible for such things as sore backs, elevated risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Hence, sitting being the new smoking. Most of us fall into the at-risk category. According to Statistics Canada, in a study quoted by Canadian Press, only 15 per cent of adults in Canada are getting the recommended guidelines of 150 minutes of physical activity a week. The sad irony of this is that virtually the entire history of our civilization involves a struggle to allow us to sit more. When farmers produced surplus food, it enabled more people to live in towns and cities, where they could take jobs that enabled them to sit instead of walk around fields. When industrialization and mechanization produced machines and assembly lines, it took fewer people to make the products we needed. So the others could sit, becoming lawyers and journalists and image

able to mute Don Cherry without getting off the couch! Imagine being able to look up the proper spelling of “achieve� without having to lift that heavy dictionary off the shelf. The parallels with smoking are not exact, as we shall see, but there is one here. The generations of heavy smokers who were our parents and grandparents were told that smoking would make them more sophisticated and desirable and that, far from being associated with health risks, cigarettes were smoked by doctors. Similarly, no one told us there was anything wrong with sitting. In our modern society, we associated sitting with working hard at our desks and working hard was a good thing. Where the parallel is not exact is in the fact that, so far, no social stigma attaches to smoking. Beginning about 25 years ago, smokers became pariahs, banished from workplaces, public spaces and people’s living rooms. That has not happened to sitters – so far. But it is an intriguing possibility. Imagine the chairs disappearing from people’s living rooms, much as the ashtrays did. Imagine the chairs vanishing from the office, so that people who want to sit have to have to go outside for chair breaks. Anti-sitting zealots will demand non-sitting

zones in public places and at major events (we have already had a preview of this in the recurring debate about lawn chairs at music festivals in the city). From there it is a short step to sitting-cessation programs, the marketing of stop-sitting aids and a debate about second-hand sitting. We will also have to be prepared to deal with the invention of electronic sitting. It may work. Sitting may become a thing of the past. But we have to be ready for the consequences of that. Can Canada accommodate all the new non-sittings? More specifically, does Ontario have a place to stand?

Women have long been essential to family income

F

ollowing a recent column I wrote about the need for a national childcare strategy, I received some mail. That’s always great. I love getting mail. There were some people who agreed wholeheartedly that the lack of quality, subsidized childcare was keeping women out of the workforce and that that is a bad thing. There were others, naturally, who don’t believe subsidies for childcare are appropriate, because it’s better for young children to be raised at home with their mothers. There was one comment in particular along those lines that really grabbed me from someone in the latter camp: “I would argue the only reason it requires two incomes to support the average family these days is because enough two income families exist to push the housing prices (and other prices) out of reach of most families who want to be single income.” And then it struck me: People actually believe that the idealistic representation of the 1950s family, where

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse dad goes to work and mom stays home with her apron (think Leave it to Beaver) – existed at some point in our history. It’s this kind of misunderstanding of that serves to undermine feminism. It’s very easy for conservatives who are resistant to the idea of women in the workplace to say that a single income was sufficient historically and therefore should be good enough now. It’s almost a clean way to mask pure sexism. Unfortunately, the idea that one income was once enough to support most Canadian families is, frankly, a lie. As one of Canada’s foremost historians on women and family, Bettina Bradbury,

noted in a 1975 essay on the topic, “At most periods in Canadian history, workingclass families have, at some point in their lifecycle, relied on more than one worker ... children’s earnings were fundamental to the family economy of all but the most skilled workers in nineteenth century Canadian cities.” Bradbury, a feminist, herself, was always ahead of her time. Nearly 40 years ago, she had the foresight to examine the “real” history of the working-class, rather than that which was represented by official statistics. But women are not well represented in wage-earning statistics over the last 150 years. The nature of their contributions was thus largely ignored in the first

prostitution. “Behind the male rhetoric about the need to support their families must have been the uneasy realization that few men could always support a wife and family at home on their wages alone,” writes Bradbury. Even by the 1950s, a single income was not enough for most families. This is supported by modern historical literature, and I’m sure most people have an historical anecdote in their own families which would expose the “Leave it to Beaver ideal” as a lie. For my own grandparents who immigrated to Canada after the Second World War, (and many like them), surviving on a single income

was far from the norm. Between them, they always earned a double income. Sometimes, my grandfather would work two jobs. But for the better part of 35 years, my grandfather worked days and my grandmother worked evenings or nights. She also helped reduce their rent by taking in the landlord’s child along with her own five children during the day. They had to make a lot of sacrifices and never relied on “strangers” to care for their children. It would be nice to think that as we have moved forward as a society to respect the contributions of women in the workplace, we could also consider policies that would work to support rather than undermine them.

Celebrating 5 years of custom pull-out shelves.

May 14th is Children and Youth in Care Day On March 25th 2014, Honourable David Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, granted royal assent to Bill 53, An Act to Proclaim Children and Youth in Care Day. This day brings attention to the enormous contributions that children and youth in and leaving care make to the province, as well as the strength, bravery and resilience they demonstrate in the face of adversity. This is our opportunity to raise awareness about children and youth in care and to recommit to supporting them and helping them reach their full potential.

No one knows the value of having everything at your fingertips better than arthritis sufferer Jim Caruk— Master Contractor, HGTV Host and Founder of Renos for Heroes. For 5 great years we’ve been helping Canadians like Jim who want easy access, better organization and increased space right in their existing cabinets.

This month, the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is celebrating the strength and resilience of approximately 600 children and youth in care. CASO becomes involved with families in the community when there may be a concern that a child or youth is at risk of abuse or neglect. Though 90% of the time children and youth remain within their family home, there are circumstances that may prevent this. Situations may warrant that a child or youth be removed from their home for a short period of time until the environment is improved, some remain in care on an extended basis, and still others are adopted into new families. While their life paths are different than those of their peers, they face many of the same hurdles and challenges, and share the same hopes and dreams. The strength they have developed is admirable.

half of the twentieth century literature. And even now, there is little discussion of it in mainstream curricula. “To understand how the working-class survived and reproduced itself, all kinds of work must be considered,” wrote Bradbury, “not simply wage labour but non-wage labour, self-employment, home production and domestic labour, involvement in formal and informal economies.” Bradbury goes onto examine exactly what that second income may have looked like. Married women outside of formalized wage labour contributed to the family income in a number of different ways – running laundries, working as domestics, even

Ontario to double seniors program News - Ontario is proposing to help more seniors stay connected to their community by doubling the Seniors Community Grant Program, the province’s first grant program dedicated solely to seniors.

The program supports initiatives by not-for-profit community groups that help seniors stay connected, active and involved in their community by encouraging greater social inclusion, volunteerism

and community engagement. This could include courses for seniors on financial literacy, computer literacy classes, community events and physical and learning activities such as exercise classes and

cooking classes. Helping seniors stay active in their communities is part of the government’s economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and

its six priorities focus on Ontario’s greatest strengths – its people and strategic partnerships. QUICK FACTS

• By 2016, for the first time, people over 65 will account for a larger share of the population than children aged 0-14.

• The Seniors Community Grant Program gives out grants ranging from $500 to $10,000 to help support initiatives that will allow seniors to contribute to all aspects of community life. • The proposed funding would increase the Seniors Community Grant Program from $500,000 to $1 million in 2014-15.

High School students cooking up a new passion Jeff Mackey jeff.mackey@metroland.com

News – More than forty high school students put their culinary skills to the test at Algonquin College’s first annual High School Hospitality Competition. The students, who came from across eastern Ontario, competed in both a hot foods and a baking competition on April 29. Michael Bakogeorge, chair of culinary arts at Algonquin College, planned this inaugural event with the aim of finding young students with a passion for culinary arts and showing them some of the types of career paths they could follow and education they might need. “Some of them do baking, cooking or general hospitality courses,” said Bakogeorge. “We want to bring them in and enlighten them on career paths we have in this industry.” But this competition is more like Iron Chef than your runof-the-mill campus tour. “The competition is similar to working in a restaurant,” said Bakogeorge. “This puts them in a real live situation and introduces them to a trade.”

And these kids are no slouches, either. Bakogeorge said that, thanks to the popularity the culinary arts are enjoying right now on television and the Internet, sometimes these young students will make stuff their professors have never seen before. CREATIVITY

“The creativity is really wild,” said Bakogeorge of the students. “There is no stigma yet over how things are supposed to be done.” “We are getting more and more young people; interestingly we are getting a lot more boys, too,” said Kent Van Dyke, culinary arts teacher at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School, one of the schools that took part in the competition. “The people we sent are really interested in following this as their career,” Two teams of two, a baking team and a cooking team, had the opportunity to represent their schools for a chance to win culinary supplies and cash prizes towards tuition in the school of hospitality and tourism. Longfields-Davidson

Heights Secondary School in Barrhaven puts a special emphasis on providing technical training to those interested in the culinary arts and hospitality. The school placed second in the hot foods competition and third in the baking competition. The cooking competition involved making an appetizer and main course using a piece of salmon, a whole chicken and a selection of groceries from a common table. “It is totally up to them to make the menu,” said Bakogeorge. “They take what they need and they have to present two plates of each course.” With only three hours to put together their dishes, the students are judged by a panel of community sponsors and Algonquin College professors on visual presentation, taste, organization, and several other criteria. “In the baking competition they make bread dough and they have to present three different types of bread rolls,” said Bakogeorge. “They’re also making two apple pieces that they have to slice and present on a plate and they are doing some cookies.”

JEFF MACKEY/METROLAND

Josh Voteary, a Grade 12 student at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School, prepares his entry for Algonquin College’s first annual High School Hospitality Competition on April 29. Voteary and his partner placed second in the competition that brought in competitors from across eastern Ontario. He will be attending Algonquin in September for their culinary arts program.

Lansdowne stadium, but little else, will open on July 18 Stores and restaurants begin opening in fall; Park, condos to be completed in 2015 Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - When TD Place opens for the first RedBlacks game on July 18, up to 2,400 fans will be left wanting for a place to grab a bite or beverage before or after the game. With 1,100 workers busy on the site, the stadium will be ready in time for kick-off, said Bernie Ashe, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, which operates the club. But almost nothing else will be done. Still, sports fans will be excited to stroll through the commercial plaza and see the initial results of the $290-million redevelopment, Ashe said. The city and OSEG partnered to redevelop the city-owned site, which used to house a partially dilapidated stadium, an OHL arena and convention centre, as well as two heritage buildings. The exterior of the new shops will be done, but they’ll be empty, Ashe said.

“We have some plans that we’re going to be able to create some pre-game entertainment and welcome fans in the retail area, however, the retailers themselves are not going to be open until the fall,” Ashe said. There will be “music and fun” outside in the retail area before and after games, Ashe said. But if people want to get food or drinks before or after the game, they can head to Bank Street, he said. The park, with its large field almost the size of the lawn in front of Parliament Hill won’t quite be ready, either. The hard-surface plaza with trees and benches in front of the Aberdeen Pavilion will be open on game day, Ashe said, but the “great lawn” won’t be open until August. The park will eventually have a play area, water feature with a tall “beacon,” a skateboard park, outdoor refrigerated ice rink and an apple orchard, but the whole thing won’t be finished and polished up until next

year, said Marco Manconi, the city staffer in charge of overseeing the project. There will be 800 trees planted – including the trembling aspen city councillors planted on April 29. Six different varieties of apple trees will be planted in the orchard in the centre of the shuttle bus drop-off near the east side of the site. “The games in the fall will be a lot more fun because we can animate this space as well,” Ashe said. People who live in the Glebe might be relieved to hear that OSEG plans to “going fairly slow” on hosting outdoor concerts at the site. Efforts to draw in those types of events won’t ramp up until next year, Ashe said. “We’re looking for outdoor concerts for this summer. We don’t have anything at this time,” Ashe said. “We’re starting to book some indoor concerts in the arena for the fall, when the 67’s return in October. “The site will probably come alive in terms of more outdoor events sometime next year, in 2015,” he said. That’s also when people

will begin moving into the 285 condo units Minto is building at Lansdowne. Ashe said Minto is reporting the units are selling well and are about 80 per cent presold. That’s about the same tenancy rate as the commercial buildings, Ashe said. Although some people have questioned whether the stores and restaurants will make Lansdowne a unique retail destination, as spelled out in the agreement with the city, Ashe defended the businesses OSEG has announced have signed on: Whole Foods, GoodLife Fitness, Sporting Life, Cineplex, JOEY restaurant, South St. Burger Company, Local Lounge and Grill and Milestones. “We’re very proud of our retail mix,” Ashe said. “We think it’s going to prove to be a very successful retail mix for what we have to do and how we have to attract people to the Glebe, as well as keep people in the Glebe.” The businesses that have signed on, particularly TD, were very keen on the site’s historic attributes such as the views of the Aberdeen Pavilion, Ashe said.

Work in progress TOP AND LEFT: Although the turf won’t begin going in until mid-June, the RedBlacks CFL field will be ready to go for game day on July 18, Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group CEO Bernie Ashe told reporters on an April 29 tour.

The plaza will be one of the only features besides the stadium ready to go when Lansdowne re-opens to the public for the RedBlacks’ first game on July 18.

JEFF MACKEY/METROLAND

Making a change York Street Public School Grade 2 teacher Eric Welch, left, accepts a $3,000 donation on behalf of his school from Chapman Mills Public School for schoolyard supplies. To his right are Chapman Mills teachers Amy Kingston, Tanya Hall, Emily Lynch and Penny Webster and Chapman Mills Grade 1 students Lauren Ruff, Emily Turner and Robbie Liu. More than $2,000 of the donation was collected by Chapman Mills students’ Change for Change program, which pulled together students’ spare change over two weeks this spring. Additional donations were given by the Chapman Mills Parent Council and York Street’s superintendant.

It is also a consequence of the fact that a large portion of her family earnings are taken by force and used to pay for the wishes of others. Since almost half her household income is taken in taxes of myriad types, she is prevented, by force from being able to select from among the various priorities she may have in life. She is forced to pay for water and bus monopolies at the municipal level and electricity, education and food monopolies at the provincial level. These are but a few examples of the thousands of interventions by govern-

ment force that prevent free choice by citizens, prevent costs from being lower and prevent the proper functioning of the economy. Leslie is in this sense partially correct that her choices are restricted (parenting versus employment) but it is the very concept she wishes to use against others that is the cause of the problem. She has met the enemy and it is her own ideology. The worst statement in the column is when she says “we need all working age people to stay in the workforce, to continue to build our economy and pay taxes to support social programs”. The direct implication here is that the purpose

Deputy Mayor / Maire suppléant Councillor / Conseiller Ward 22 Gloucester – South Nepean 613-580-2751 Steve.Desroches@Ottawa.ca www.SteveDesroches.ca

of having children and of people living and working is to support the collective, the lives of others, specifically the elderly who are not working. What a demeaning vision of the purpose of human life, to work so that others may enjoy social programs they have not paid for. There is no reason why people who are working cannot choose how to spend their own money on whatever services they wish and save for the time when they do not wish or are unable to work. That is what a free country looks like. It is only when services are run by the use of force that children become slaves

to the pensions and benefits of prior generations - generations who have voted to spend on themselves the money their children and grandchildren have not yet earned. Brynna Leslie’s vision of universal child care is not proper in a free society. It is a vision suitable for a country run by the ideas of Karl Marx. We have seen such societies and are moving in the direction of becoming one - a society where individual rights are erased and groups struggle for the levers of political power until one of them achieves total power.

News - Locally farmed produce will sprout up in green spaces and neighbourhood parking lots this month as the Ottawa Farmers’ Market celebrates the opening of its ninth season. The market main location was set to open on May 4 at Brewer Park with its satellite locations in Orléans starting up on May 16 and the one in Westboro getting underway on May 17. “After a hard-earned spring, we are looking forward to seeing our customers and returning to the fresh air and green space of Brewer Park,” said Andy Terauds, president of the Ottawa Farmers’ Market Association. “We are excited for spring and all that it brings: fresh air, warmer days, a renewed energy and vibrantly-hued produce.” Even though there has been a late start to spring, Terauds said the crops are not too far behind and local asparagus, rhubarb, ramps (spring onions) and green garlic are only a few weeks away. The market began in 2006 with a mere 19 vendors selling their wares at Lansdowne Park. Today there are more than 130 members and three locations in the city. Tara Simpson, spokeswoman for the association, said the goal of the markets is to ensure the produce and products sold are produced in the Ottawa region. Simpson said she anticipates many customers looking forward to the new season. As in the past, they seem to make going to the market an outing for the whole family, she said.

The last th one was held on Sunday, May 4 and future dates are being scheduled. Household hazardous waste includes any products which are corrosive, flammable or poisonous. These types of products contaminate water and landfills and should never be poured down the drain or put out with your regular garbage. Liquid or hazardous waste from industrial, commercial and institutional sources will not be accepted, as the oneday Household Hazardous Waste Depots are for residential household waste only. Some of the products which will be accepted at household hazardous waste depots include: (maximum 100 litres by volume): aerosol containers, propane cylinders, disinfectants, fluorescent bulbs/tubes, fertilizers and pesticides, paints and coatings, and pool chemicals.

Bike to Work Month: The month of May is known as Bike to Work Month in the City of Ottawa. To celebrate this, I emceed a launch st event with Mayor Watson on Thursday, May 1 at City Hall. This campaign, which is part of the greater Bike to Work Ottawa initiative, is a month-long campaign that offers events and activities designed to engage individuals and workplaces in a celebration of cycling by encouraging residents to explore cycling to work as their main mode of transportation. The goal of Bike to Work Month is to encourage residents to try biking all or part of the way to work, to discover the ease, convenience, efficiency and joy of cycle commuting by recognizing new and existing cycling infrastructure in the City of Ottawa. For more information on Bike to Work Ottawa, please visit: http://www.biketoworkottawa.ca/en/. Ward 9 Volunteer Recognition Awards: Do you know someone in the community who volunteers their time to help with activities or organizations in Ward 9? It’s never too early to start thinking about nominating someone for the Ward 9 Volunteer Recognition Awards. There are six categories for which people can be nominated: Volunteer in Sports and Recreation; Senior Volunteer Award; Volunteer Family Award; Business Volunteer Award; Junior Volunteer Award; and the Heart of the Community Award.

Youth flock to career fair for summer jobs, tips Jeff Mackey jeff.mackey@metroland.com

News- Whether they’re looking for professional development, an excuse to be outside in the sun and work on their tan or to simply bank some of that all-mighty dollar, getting that perfect summer job can make or break a student’s entire year. These days, the competition can be fierce, and nowhere was that more evident than at the YMCA’s Merivale Employment Access Centre summer job fair. The event, held on April 24 at the Merivale Mall, brought out 540 job hunters and 20 perspective employers. All the usual suspects had tables set up, looking for young seasonal workers including student painters and window cleaners, local water parks and some select federal government agencies. But the job market isn’t as easy to access for students these days. “The job market is generally just a difficult market for a variety of reasons,” said Marc Gammal, job developer for YMCA’s National Capital

Region Employment Access Centre. Gammal recommended industries like health care and the trades to job seekers, adding that there are plenty of jobs in these growing industries that you may not even know existed. “Don’t just think doctor, nurse or administrator, various industries need a diverse group of people wearing different hats,” said Gammal. SUMMER JOB ADVICE

Gammal’s biggest piece of advice for job seekers is to take advantage of their social, professional and family connections to see if they know of any opportunities “They say that you are now 12 times more likely to get a job through someone you know,” said Gammal, who added that people shouldn’t overly rely on online applications or handing out resumes to businesses that don’t know you. But that doesn���t mean a top-notch resume isn’t important. Unfortunately, this can be an area that people from

Ottawa can sometimes make a misstep, says Gammal. “Be concise,” said Gammal. “Government resumes tend to be really long and it is better to condense your information for employers in the real world, or outside the public sector.” Once you have your summer resume put together and tailor-made for the job you’re applying for, hopefully you will get yourself an interview. This can be difficult for anyone, but students who don’t have much experience with job interviews can find it especially stressful. Gammal said it is important to be relaxed, comfortable and prepared. “The biggest thing is preparation, know the person you are going to meet and do some research on their company,” said Gammal. “Come with JEFF MACKEY/METROLAND questions, it is OK to come Victor Fuenmayor, 20, of Student Works painting, right, talks with summer job seekers with a sheet of questions you Charlene Niebes, 17, left, and Emilie Morimanno, 17, at the Merivale Employment Access want to ask.” Centre’s summer job fair at Merivale Mall on April 24. But don’t talk your interviewers ear off, either, said Gammal. “People love to talk about themselves and what they do so let them. Be prepared to listen.”

New telecom service coming for hearing, speech impaired News - The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission has announced that video relay service will be made available in Canada for users of American Sign Language and Langue des signes québécoise. When it launches, the service will facilitate conversations between people who are deaf, hard of hearing and speech impaired and other Canadians. An operator facilitates the conversation between the two parties by relaying the

conversation between sign language and spoken language. Although video relay service will be offered at no charge, users will need their own high-speed Internet service and an Internet-connected device, such as a computer, smartphone, tablet or videophone. Additional services, such as voicemail and call display, will be billed at rates similar to those charged for corresponding voice services. Funding to support video relay service in Canada will be drawn from the National

Contribution Fund, and will be capped at $30 million annually. This fund was created in 2001 to subsidize local telephone service in areas where the cost of providing this service is higher. Companies with over $10 million in annual telecommunications revenues contribute to this fund. The CRTC will conduct a review of video relay service three years after it has launched to assess whether it is meeting the needs of Canadians in an efficient manner.

Building blocks to promote your children’s brain health News - Experts across the globe suggest that lifestyle factors play a significant role in the brain health of people of all ages, including children. • Building block 1: Get moving. Engaging in physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day encourages new brain cells and connections to form. Playing catch, hiking or swimming, are ways for the entire family to exercise together. • Building block 2: Nourish the body and mind. Maximize your

child’s intake of DHA, the fatty acid that makes up 97 percent of the omega-3s in the brain. Find it in fatty fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel) or, if your child doesn’t like fish, look for it in Dairyland L’il Ones yogurt (lilones.ca/products.php), in Natrel Baboo milk (natrel.ca/en/baboo) and in Sunrise Soya SuperSqueezies (sunrise-soya. com/super-squeezies). • Building block 3: Embrace new activities.

Province adds to immunization requirements for schools News - Ontario will require immunizations to be up to date before children return to school in September. The province has updated the immunization requirements for the 2014-15 school year to include new mandatory immunizations and dose requirements that align with changes to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s publicly-funded immunization program. All students attending primary or secondary school this fall will need to have proof of immunization against meningococcal disease, whooping

cough and â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for children born in 2010 or later â&#x20AC;&#x201C; chickenpox. This is in addition to updated dose requirements for tetanus, diphtheria, polio and mumps immunizations. Requirements for measles and rubella immunizations have not changed. Parents should take the following steps to ensure that their children meet the new immunization requirements: 1) Double check with their doctor, nurse practitioner or local public health unit to make sure their childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immunization records are up

to date. 2) Make sure that their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s updated immunization record has been reported to their local public health unit. Once the school year begins, parents will be contacted by the local public health unit if catch-up immunizations are required. Following Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immunization schedule and maintaining immunization records are important steps to prevent the spread of these diseases in our communities. These diseases can

spread easily in schools and can lead to serious health consequences especially in children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Parents of children who require an immunization exemption should speak to their local public health unit. Children who are exempt from immunization are at increased risk and may be removed from school during a disease outbreak. The Ontario government currently publicly funds 21 different (routine and non-routine) vaccines through

its provincial immunization program that protect against 16 diseases. Vaccines for meningococcal disease, whooping cough and chickenpox are publicly funded and part of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s routine immunization schedule. They are also consistent with current clinical guidelines for best protecting Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children from disease. Thanks to vaccines, infectious diseases that were the leading cause of death worldwide 100 years ago are now the cause of less than five per cent of all deaths in Canada.

Development charges for new homes on the rise Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Adding a few thousand dollars onto the cost of building a new home in Ottawa is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s necessary to serve a growing city without burdening taxpayers, says Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quite frankly I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair to existing taxpayers,â&#x20AC;? said the planning committee chairman, who made the case for hiking development charges. If approved, the increased fees would represent between three and seven per cent of the cost of a new house, up from 2.5 and six per cent, depending on the type of home and whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s located in an urban, suburban or rural area. Development charges pay for the cost related to growth in an area â&#x20AC;&#x201C; increased pressure on roads and infrastructure for everything from sewers to parks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually tacked onto the price of new houses by developers. Transit expansion is a large portion of the development charge, Hume said, adding the city â&#x20AC;&#x153;left no stone unturned to ensure transit projects got the most funding possible.â&#x20AC;? Developers raised the most concerns about the way money is allocated to transit projects. The city wants to use development charges to fund transit projects in the same way it funds roads, Hume said.â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the long term, growth of the city, in terms of treating roads the same as transit, was of beneďŹ t,â&#x20AC;? he said. Community representatives wanted transit money to be allocated on a local basis. That would make the development charge very high and unaffordable for construction inside the Greenbelt, Hume said. Since transit is concentrated in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core, under a local-charge scheme, downtown residents would be burdened with most of the cost of expanding the system, even though suburban residents put a demand on the service, too.

Another change will be made to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to exempting some developments from fees. Since 2009, when development charges were last reviewed, the city wrote off $53 million in development charges, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recoverable, said planning manager John Moser. Now, the city will have to ďŹ nd other ways to make up that loss in developmentcharge revenue if it grants an exemption â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as getting money from property taxes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to put that money back in. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have development charges to meet the growth, your projects are in jeopardy,â&#x20AC;? Hume said. PARKS, CHILDCARE, SOCIAL HOUSING

As previously reported, another change would see developers take over the responsibility of building most new parks in new communities

starting Oct. 1. Instead of the city collecting development charges after homes are built and using the money to build parks, developers can build them as soon as they start constructing homes. The parks will still be designed to city standards and large district parks, of which there are four of in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans, would still be built by the city. The city is also suggesting putting a freeze on collecting development charges for childcare and social housing reserves. There is currently $3.4 million and $1.7 million respectively in those funds now, but the city hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend the money because of limitations on how it can be used. The province requires the cash to be spent on projects the city builds, owns and operates, which would create a tax burden to maintain and operate the facilities. The city is looking into whether it could use the money to create social

housing to be operated by Ottawa Community Housing. Until the legality of different options is determined, the money wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be spent and the fee wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be charged. If the city wanted to re-instate that portion of the development charge, it would need to conduct another background study and city council would have to approve the additional fee. The same process would apply if councillors wanted to pursue areaspeciďŹ c development charges for neighbourhoods that are seeing a huge increase in population, such as Little Italy, Coun. Diane Holmes suggested. Coun. David Chernushenko said it might be something to look into for Old Ottawa East, which has a large institutional property slated for redevelopment. Hume said homebuilders said the plan to collectively appeal the changes due to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;magnitudeâ&#x20AC;? of the development charge increase.

PROPOSED INCREASE IN DEVELOPMENT CHARGE:

â&#x20AC;˘ Home inside the Greenbelt: $5,068 increase ($21,959 total) â&#x20AC;˘ Home outside the Greenbelt: $5,517 ($30,832 total) â&#x20AC;˘ Rural home (serviced): $3,603 increase ($19,685 total) â&#x20AC;˘ Rural home (unserviced): $3,374 increase ($17,254 total)

Will a health crisis tarnish your golden years? Jennifer Bowman, Jessica Cunha and Tamara Shephard

News - Mary wouldn’t call them her golden years. At 75, the Ottawa widow lives tightly on $25,000 a year. Her condominium fees eats up most of her income. There is little cash left over each month after she pays for food, her car, insurance, Internet service and her phone. She receives no income supplement. “Save, save, save. Put money away,” says Mary, who asked not to be identified. She is embarrassed over her dire financial straits. “Save from the time you’re 20. I don’t care if it’s $10 a week. It adds up. It makes all the difference in the world.” She and her husband held down “decent” jobs and raised five children together. But neither had a university degree. That put a ceiling on job and income opportunities, she said, and directly affected their ability to financially prepare for their retirement. Both worked until age 70. Mary is in good health. She receives two small pensions, from her job and her

late husband’s work. Without them, she doesn’t know how she’d survive. Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security (OAS) adds up to only $1,300 a month. “It never crossed my mind,” she said of her retirement. “You know it’s coming, but it’s a long way off. Then, all of a sudden, it’s there.” Mary’s retirement experience is a cautionary tale for Baby Boomers, the oldest of which are just turning 65, and for Generation Xers, those born starting in the mid-1960s on the heels of the boomers. Her financial distress in retirement is an all-too-common reality for many of Ontario’s 1.9 million seniors aged 65 or older. In fact, many Ontarians simply cannot afford to retire. Consumer costs, including health care and housing, compel them to work for wages and for health benefits. And in the next 20 years, Ontario’s population of seniors is expected to double. No one knows better how a health crisis can wreak havoc on retirement plans than Brampton’s Anne Mitchell, 67.

Mitchell is gearing up for a second battle with cancer. Except, this time, Mitchell is scrambling to come up with $52,000 for chemotherapy treatment not covered by OHIP. “It will wipe out all of our savings,” Mitchell said. “This is a big financial burden. It will wipe out our whole retirement.” Mitchell, a former office manager for a construction company and her husband John, 68, a steelworker, worked in Canada for more than 40 years and planned to fund their retirement with some retirement savings and a government pension. But no one plans for cancer. In 2009, Mitchell was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.

Let’s bring back play this summer

It’s a good thing too, because recent reports show that Canadian kids just aren’t getting enough exercise. According to the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology, kids should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every single day. Unfortunately, for many children that simply isn’t the case. This spring and summer, consider enrolling your child in an organized sport or physical

activity, such as soccer, baseball, swimming or cricket. Freida Rubletz, Regional Manager, Jumpstart Programs Greater Toronto Area, Canadian Tire Jumpstart, explains that in addition to the physical benefits, organized play also helps to:

I want to briefly outline what our Ontario’s Six-Point Plan for Jobs means for our community. Talent and Skills - Ontario must be first in North America when it comes to talent, training, retraining and skills development and we need to continue to develop our best resource – our people. Starting with full day kindergarten to our 30% off Tuition Grant, which last year alone helped more than 230,000 students start college or university, to expanding our apprenticeship program and committing to our Second Careers program, which has helped 74,000 Ontarians. Supporting Key Industries - Ontario has a diverse economy and we need to continue working with businesses and communities to create the conditions they need to succeed.

Right here in Ottawa and across Ontario, Cisco will create 1,700 high paying jobs, and could create as many as 3,700 new jobs in the next decade.

In today’s global economy, we have an obligation to forge such partnerships and seize such opportunities.

Angel Hair Old Ottawa South resident Anneka Dallin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Grady, 10, waits patiently as Barrhaven resident Michelle Nguyen snips off 10 inches of her hair at Hair Republic in Old Ottawa South on April 27. Nguyen, salon co-owner, says when Anneka came in looking to cut and donate her locks in February, she immediately felt inspired to do as much as she could to help children who have lost their hair from cancer treatment. The salonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven stylists donated their time to chop the locks of about 140 children, who either donated their hair for wigs or their parents donated the cost of their haircuts for Angel Care for Kids. The organization provides wigs to children in need who have lost their hair. ERIN MCCRACKEN/METROLAND

Councillor Comments By Jan Harder

If you are a regular reader of this column, you may recall that last year I worked very hard with the Service Ottawa department to get a kiosk placed in the Ruth E. Dickinson branch of the Ottawa Public Library where residents could access a number of City Services such as pet licensing, parking permits for on-street parking, burn permits, etc. While having a local place to take care of a long list of City of Ottawa services was well received, it was clear that longer hours were needed. So after much discussion and work by city staff, I am very happy to tell you that the client service desk at Walter Baker Sports Centre is conducting a new pilot project to offer expanded services from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Services will be delivered at the existing client service desk at the main entrance to the sports centre. The expanded services include all of the current Parks, Recreation and Culture services plus twenty-nine ServiceOttawa services. Residents can: pay tax and water bills, pay for and pick-up road cut permits and burn permits, apply for parking permits and pay parking tickets, and much much more. Here is the breakdown of the new expanded hours and schedule: s 0ARKS 2ECREATION AND #ULTURAL 3ERVICES (PRCS) only: 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., Monday to Friday s3ERVICE/TTAWAAND02#33ERVICES a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday to Friday s 02#3 3ERVICES ONLY  PM TO  p.m., Monday to Friday and 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday Please note that currently, payments received after 5 p.m. will be processed on the following business day, however I am working with staff to see if this can be changed. The location, expanded hours and expanded services offered are the result OF LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE  PILOT OF nine ServiceOttawa services at Ruth E. Dickinson Library. Moreover, Walter Baker Sports Centre HAS  -ILLION VISITORS AND   USERS annually and Ruth E. Dickinson Library and a Community Police Centre are on site which means a central location to access many City services. In addition, Walter Baker Service Centre is designated as a hub for seniors. This new Service Ottawa counter at Walter Baker Sports Centre will provide Barrhaven and rural southwest residents with more options and access to municipal services. This initiative is part of the continuing effort to make city services available in ways that are convenient for residents and businesses. For the complete list of services available at Walter Baker and for more information, visit www.ottawa.ca. http://www.janharder.com

As always, I welcome your feedback. Contact me at jan.harder@ottawa.ca or 613-580-2473, and visit my webpage at www.janharder.com. Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, May 8, 2014

Health care costs loom largely over retirement planning Continued from page 31

Blue Cross does not cover prescription drugs after age 65 because seniors in this province qualify for the Ontario Drug Benefit. A dental exam and diagnosis costs $65, according to the Ontario Dental Association’s 2014 fee schedule. Need dental X-rays? A complete set of 12 images costs $123. Cleaning and polishing your teeth costs a minimum of $55. If a senior has a crown that needs to be restored, the suggested cost is $685. Root canal therapy begins at $441. Dentures start at $751 for the upper palate and $956 for lower teeth. Seniors 65 and older pay just under $50 for an eye test. Should a senior need a chiropractor, massage therapy, physiotherapy or a podiatrist, those costs are not paid by OHIP. Seniors must pay for those services out-of-pocket or through private insurance. A visit to the chiropractor costs up to $140 for a 40-minute session, the 2014 Ontario Chiropractic Association Fee Schedule suggests. A detailed exam can cost between $140 and $280. A massage delivered by a registered massage therapist costs $38 for 15 minutes and $102 for an hour. Seniors 65 and older may be eligible for publicly funded physiotherapy with a doctor’s referral, the Ontario government’s health services branch reports. A single senior with a yearly net income less than $16,018 or a senior couple whose combined net annual income is less than $24,175 or a senior on Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program, living in long-term care or receiving home care pay no deductible and only $2 per prescription filled. Ensuring Ontarians have access to drugs they need regardless of cost is one of 169 recommendations contained in a 2012 report entitled “Living Longer, Living Well,” that’s intended to inform a Seniors Strategy for Ontario. “(We) have to start thinking about how to develop fairer and sustainable financing systems

that can still allow us to ensure all Ontarians can access the pharmaceutical therapies they need, regardless of their ability to pay for them,” stated the 198-page report by Dr. Samir Sinha, director of geriatrics at Mount Sinai and the University Health Network hospitals. Ontarians need to consider health care planning in their retirement preparations, advised Bob McGaraughty, a financial security advisor with Freedom 55 Financial in Ottawa. Plan on retiring on 70 per cent of your pre-retirement earnings, he said. “Your health is a big issue. If you’ve got your health, then your costs are stabilized. If your health deteriorates quickly ... that’s a big (cost),” he said. “If you can’t pay for your medicine, then what do you do?”

If you can’t pay for your medicine, then what do you do?” BOB MCGARAUGHTY FINANCIAL SECURITY ADVISOR

Then there is the matter of how Ontarians will afford their care as they age. According to Statistics Canada, the median after-tax income for seniors over the age of 65 in 2010 was $26,185. Besides medical expenses, this money must also cover costs such as housing, food, transportation, social events and communication. Some 92 per cent of Canadian seniors aged 65 and older live in private dwellings, Statistics Canada’s 2011 Census reported. In doing so, this often requires the added costs of installing accessibility aids or hiring a live-in housekeeper. To minimize costs, some seniors choose to open their home to another person in exchange for light household chores and cheap rent. Seniors living in subsidized housing pay either 30 per cent of their income (rent geared to income) or 20 per cent below market rent (affordable housing), depending on the housing arrangement. What their maximum income can be and how they apply varies by district

and municipality throughout the province. In Muskoka, seniors applying for a subsidized one-bedroom unit must be living on less than $29,700 per year. And the cheaper cost comes at a price. There’s a wait list. In Muskoka it’s three to five years, but in Peel, it’s 20 years. Some areas have senior-only subsidized housing which may reduce the wait time, some do not. Others choose to spend their golden years in a retirement home. There are 700 such facilities in Ontario, from townhouses to apartments, providing a variety of services and lifestyles for seniors from living with no assistance to inhome care. At an average cost of $3,204 per unit per month, it’s an expense that’s well above an entire monthly budget of $2,182 for those living on $26,185 or less per year. When seniors are no longer able to live on their own or require more intensive care than a live-in caregiver can provide, many opt to move into a long-term care home (LTC). A LTC home provides 24-hour services and care and is often where seniors will live out their life. Rates at the homes are regulated by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care at $1,707.59 a month for a basic room with subsidies available from the government. Semi-private or private rooms cost more. In 2011-12, the median time to be on a wait list for a long-term care room was 98 days. Fred’s wife, Doris, moved into a private room in a LTC home last December in Bracebridge, Ont. It costs $2,275 a month. Fred lives next-door in subsidized housing at $650 per month plus utilities. Multiple times a day, Fred joins his wife for meals paid for by the home. How can Fred and Doris afford their care? Fourteen years ago, the couple who will have been married 55 years in June sold an apartment building they’d owned for a decade for approximately $700,000. Fred still owns property in Huntsville: “We’ve still got that to sell if need be,” he said.

Teach kids a love of books and learning early in life News - Reading is an important life-long skillâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and developing strong reading habits from an early age sets the stage for life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for young children have strong reading skills, getting kids to embrace reading

is not always as simple,â&#x20AC;? says Nick Whitehead, the founder and CEO of Oxford Learning. Fortunately there are several strategies that parents can take to help their kids improve both their love of reading and their reading skills. According to Dr. White-

head, the number one thing that parents can do to improve their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reading ability is to simply make books available in the home and to have a regular reading time. He also suggests some other simple ideas to encourage reading such as going to the li-

brary together, reading books together as a family, reading a book series, or listening to audio books in the car. LIBRARY TRIPS

For parents who have tried all the basic tips and still have

difficulty getting their children to embrace reading, Dr. Whitehead suggests that parents of older children give their kids banned books or let them read above their skill level. Studies have shown that telling a child a book is banned sparks their interest to

read it more. For younger children, parents can stop reading right at a pivotal point to guarantee that children become interested enough to read on by themselves to find out what happens next. News Canada

Debt-retirement charge to be taken off hydro bills Date of removal coincides with loss of 10 per cent clean energy benefit Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

News - The province has announced plans to drop the contentious debt-retirement charge from residential hydro bills after Dec. 31, 2015, a move that will partially offset the elimination of the Ontario Clean Energy Benefit on the same date. The debt-retirement charge was created to pay down the billions of dollars of debt left over from the former Ontario Hydro utility. The province, which made the announcement on April 23, expects this to save a typical homeowner $5.60 per month. While any savings is good news for ratepayers in a time of rising energy costs, the move will only serve to reduce the increase of the cost of hydro, as the 10 per cent Ontario Clean

Energy Benefit will be retired on the same night. With the benefit removed, ratepayers will instantly pay 10 per cent more for hydro, minus the debt-retirement charge. This increase is compounded by the 42 per cent increase in hydro rates projected over the next five years in the 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan. “We’re helping Ontarians with the costs of investing in a cleaner, more reliable electricity system,” said Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli in a media release. “We’re doing our part to help families worry less about how to pay for electricity.” The April 23 announcement also served to outline new initiatives being offered by the province’s power sector. Though few specifics were available at press time, the province said it plans to work with the Ontario Energy Board to create an electricity support program, which would see a 10 per cent rebate remain on the bills of low-income families after the removal of the clean energy benefit. A household with a family income of less than

$40,000 would qualify for the benefit, which would be funded through a charge added to bills sent to households making over $40,000. Proposed changes to two existing industrial electricity programs and a conservation program were also announced. The Industrial Conservation Initiative, which allows large power users to switch their bills to off-peak hours for financial savings, will be offered to medium-sized businesses consuming three megawatts or more of power per month, down from a minimum of five megawatts. Broader eligibility for the Industrial Electricity Incentive, which offers lower rates to businesses that expand their operations or hire new workers, was also announced. So too was a new conservation plan for small-businesses, working in conjunction with local utilities. Ontario Energy Board-approved hydro rates came into effect on May 1, amounting to an increase of 0.3 cents per kilowatt hour for off-peak times, and a jump of 0.6 cents during on-peak hours.

Add curb appeal with an updated fence Lifestyle - A beautiful, wellmaintained fence adds to the value and outdoor aesthetics of your home. Whether painted or stained, a fence must be constantly maintained over the years to be protected against snow, rain, hail, hot sun and UV rays. Sharon Grech, the colour and design expert for Benjamin Moore, shares step-by-step tips on how to give your fence a

facelift this spring: â&#x20AC;˘ Assemble the tools: Half the battle when updating a fence is in the preparation. Have all the tools ready to go, including drop cloths and brushes, paint trays and tape, and any necessary cleaning supplies. â&#x20AC;˘ Clean and prep: Taking the time to properly clean and wash away any debris that has collected over the winter ensures a fresh canvas that will yield

favourable results. Depending on the condition of the fence, it may also need to be sanded to ensure a smooth, even surface that allows the wood to accept the paint better. â&#x20AC;˘ Prime and paint: Priming is an essential part of the fencepainting process and should not be overlooked. It not only gives the paint something to stick to, it helps to protect the wood against the elements.

However, if you choose to use a stain, priming may not be necessary. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid of colour: Experiment with more than the just the basics to add a creative twist. Darker shades with green undertones like the Benjamin Moore colour Midnight, give a stately, formal look to the yard, while bold and playful Stuart Gold provides a burst of bright colour for whimsical flair.

Have Your Best Garden Ever in 2014 Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that a great garden starts with great soil. Soil is a source of nutrients, air and water essenal to the establishment of healthy root systems in plants; but its supply is not inďŹ nite. A neglected soil is far less likely to yield the results you are looking for in your perfect garden. Over me your soil can become nutrient deďŹ cient, compacted or thin which can make it diďŹ&#x192;cult to grow and lead to poor plant health. A great soil is rich in nutrients, pH balanced and has excellent lth, allowing for easy air and water ďŹ&#x201A;ow. Furthermore, a great soil should also be built up enough to allow your plantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roots plenty of room to grow deep and thus access more water and nutrients. How can you take a red, dull soil and turn it into a great soil? This can be accomplished using a number of techniques. One of the easiest ways to improve such a soil is by using an amendment or enhancer that is made up in large part of organic maer. Soil amendments are designed to be mixed in with exisng soils to bolster areas in need of improvement.

The ideal me to introduce organic maer into your growing areas is in the late Fall. This allows the beneďŹ cial microorganisms in your soil more me to become acve before gardening season arrives. While in a perfect world we would all earmark some me for soil amending before the frost, for many of us, our ďŹ&#x201A;ower beds are far from priority number one when the cold weather starts to set in.

Each component in this mix contributes parcles of diďŹ&#x20AC;erent sizes and shapes. This results in improved airďŹ&#x201A;ow and drainage and reduces the risk of over compacon. The organicbased soil will also provide excellent water retenon; something your plantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roots will really appreciate.

Not to worry though! Even if you missed the window last Fall, you can sll get more out of your soil this Spring. There are great products on the market that can make a real diďŹ&#x20AC;erence in the results you see from your garden this year, including Manderleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Premium Lawn and Garden Soil â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which can be conveniently delivered right to your driveway in an easy-to-store cubic yard bag.

Giving your best garden ever the head start it deserves isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rocket science. Follow these easy steps for best results: Step one - determine how much soil you need. Keep in mind that you should aim to maintain at least a 6â&#x20AC;? soil depth (pro p â&#x20AC;&#x201C; top oďŹ&#x20AC; your growing areas with 2â&#x20AC;? of soil every Fall to make up for soil loss caused by erosion, etc.). Step two - go get your soil, or beer yet, have it delivered without the mess or hassle. Step three - ll or turn over the exisng soil in your growing areas. Step four - add in your soil mix and ensure that your beds reach the appropriate depth. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that easy.

Manderleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soil mix is a 100% natural product consisng of black earth, organic ferlizer, compost, sand and lime. The organic content in the mix is quite high, which promotes microbial acvity in your growing area. Microorganisms will work hard to

Understanding the importance of maintaining a healthy soil is the ďŹ rst step in reaching your garden goals for 2014. By following these four steps and giving your plants proper care throughout the gardening season, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be amazed at the diďŹ&#x20AC;erence.

Becoming a greener gardener, can you dig it? Lfestyle - Mary may have been quite contrary, but she probably wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thinking about eco-friendly solutions to make her garden grow. Canadians have become increasingly aware of the effectiveness of green gardening, so whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a landscape architect working on your latest creation or a condo dweller content with a couple of potted herbs, a little guidance from the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest producer of outdoor power products will have you growing green in no time. Take a look at these tips from Husqvarna: â&#x20AC;˘ Compost. Improve soil fertility by using kitchen food scraps. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to throw away perfectly good plant food. Known as gardenerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gold, compost is an inexpensive way to give your soil high-powered nutrients. â&#x20AC;˘ Harvest rainwater. Adding a rain barrel is an easy way to capture water for watering lawns, yards and gardens. Be sure to put a screen on top of your barrel to keep out unwanted debris and creatures. â&#x20AC;˘ Use the right tools. Is it time to trade in your lawnmower for a newer version? New lawnmowers are more fuel efficient and produce less harmful emissions. Also, you may want to consider a front-, rear- or all-wheel drive mower as they will reduce mowing time substantially. â&#x20AC;˘ Bring on the pollinating pals. Provide a pesticide-free sanctuary for butterflies and bees by growing a diverse variety of flowers. Flowers such as wild lilac, goldenrod and lemon balm are particularly inviting to our flying friends. â&#x20AC;˘ Loosen the soil. Soil loosening makes it possible for oxygen to reach the roots of the plants and also creates a better looking flowerbed. In smaller beds you can get by with hand tools, but if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working with larger areas, a rotary cultivator is the way to go. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep the mulch. Leave the clippings on your lawn. Not only do you eliminate the time to bag and dump the mulch, but the clippings fertilize the soil and lawn. More lawn tips and information about tool options for green gardening can be found online at www.husqvarna.ca.

Party on the patio EMC lifestyle - The choice of materials for your patio or terrace is up to you, but such a choice should be made right at the beginning of your strategy. It will determine the amount of money needed for your plan. There are a variety of available materials, each with their advantages and inconveniences. Some will require more upkeep while others are more expensive. Durability and solidity are major concerns when you choose your building material. You may also combine different materials for unique special effects as well as optimizing your available budget. The most popular materials used for patio and terrace are wood, concrete slabs, stone, composite and synthetic materials. Avoid materials that may crumble in winter, brittle and flimsy material as well as slippery substances. Wood is often chosen for a terrace. This structure is usually built a few feet up from the ground so will require

support pillars and railing. You may also choose wood for structures placed directly on the ground but be sure to use treated wood to avoid rotting. Wood is a favorite even though it requires yearly upkeep; its price, simplicity and warmth are attractive to many homeowners. Your floor can also be made of cement or stone slabs: using both will allow you to emphasize specific areas or zones. You can also use a base made up of bricks or granite since they require little upkeep and will resist weather changes. Synthetic materials include fibreglass, recycled plastics that resemble wood as well as waterproof fibres. All these synthetic materials are very durable and are often found in original garden designs. Composite is made with wood fibres and recycled plastics. It is both durable and maintenance-free while environmentally friendly. Composite will resist weather extremes, bad weather as well as UV rays without deterioration.

Left to its own devices, your patio may present prominent angles, which need to be hidden or camouflaged for a harmonious look into your garden. Like any landscaping project, the trick of the trade is planning. Plants can help. First, determine the amount of sunlight in the space you wish to landscape. You should also consider planting perennials around your patio if you wish to avoid having to transplant every year. To lighten up a patio made of cement, choose high plants with pale flowers alongside its borders.

Planning the perfect pool for your family

Home &Garden

Lifestyle - What could be more exciting than deciding to install a swimming pool in your back yard? Since this will probably be the only pool you buy for your home, make sure make the right choice. This means taking your familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs and the potential of your yard into consideration. If you plan on doing lots of laps, go for a long, straight pool. If you like to jump off the diving board, opt for a deeper pool. If you have kids, consider a curvy or round pool that will allow A beautiful in-ground pool offers fun and relaxation for your whole family. them to play various water games. The size of your property and the depth of your pockets will play a determining role in how large a pool you can install. You also need to take into consideration any hydroelectric lines that may be buried under your property as well as any municipal bylaws that require a minimum space around your home and property limits. If your yard is on an incline, you will need to choose between levelling your yard, which might require installing a talus or a low wall, and building a balcony that directly reaches the pool. While this latter option will only work with an above-ground pool, it will make it seem like an in-ground pool. Since they are more affordable, above-ground swimming pools are popular choices with many homeowners. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, they can be removed or relocated fairly easily. These types of pools can be accessed with either a ladder or directly from a balcony. A more costly option, in-ground swimming pools can make beautiful additions to a backyard, but they are not easily moved.

A guide for paving a way into your home Lifestyle - Even if more expensive than asphalt, interlock offers beauty. There are many types, shapes, colors and textures of interlock. The current tendency is mosaic with its creative motifs. It is easier to correct a design on paper rather than after its completion so plan well ahead as you design on paper according to scale. Remember to check your borders and land markers according to municipal easements and rights of way. First indicate where the house will be located, according to geographical directions. Indicate where the doors and windows will go. Clearly demarcate parking spaces and the main access to the home. Add fixed structures and elements such as trees, fencing, lawn and hedges. Indicate sunny locations for plants and garden. Add elements that need to be paved or made with interlock such as pathways, access roads and sidewalks. Finally, include structures such as terrace, stairs, low walls and supporting walls.

To calculate your budget, estimate how many paving stones will be needed for your project, what tools will be necessary to install and anchor the stones as well as the equipment needed for the overall project. Before putting in the paving stones, first dig out the designated area, prepare the foundations, spread the base, then level off the bed. Once this is done, lay the stones and fill in the gaps. Maintenance is an important part of your project. Regularly check the condition of the paving stones and remove paint, oil or rust stains. You should also deep clean your stones on a regular basis to removed caked-in grime as well as dissolve efflorescence. Remember to rinse it off and make sure everything is very clean before applying a protective coating with a roller brush.

Spring cleaning brought new life into childhood home

T

he signs were everywhere. Our old log house had finally taken on the look of spring, leading into summer. Although any visitor coming into the house would not be aware of the difference, it was very obvious to us who lived there. Outside, the very last smidgen of snow had long since gone. The foot path from the summer kitchen to the barn was now dry, and the mud that followed the melting snow had hardened like it did every spring. Inside, everywhere, I could see the changes that had taken us from one season to the next. Mother had pulled out the strips of rags and old wool socks that had been crammed around every window downstairs to keep out the winter drafts. Of course, these weren’t thrown away. No, they were washed, hung out on the fence to dry, and then rolled in newspapers and tucked under an upstairs bed at the ready for the next winter. The windows themselves, grimy from the long months when they were impossible to clean, were shining from the

MARY COOK Memories bath they took of water and vinegar. The windows were ready for the warm weather. When the cold fall weather struck months before, braided mats had been scattered all through the house: one hefty one rolled and kept tight against the back door to keep out the drafts, many others put here and there, in the hope they would help keep our feet warm from the icy cold floors that were impossible to heat up no matter how raging was the Findlay Oval. And joy, oh joy, the navy blue fleece lined bloomers had one last washing on laundry day, and they too would be tucked away. Of course, they were no longer the deep navy of a few months ago when they were fresh out of the parcel ordered from Eaton’s

catalogue. Now they had faded to a pale purple, attesting to the dozens of times they had been washed over the winter. The bloomers would join the suits of long underwear and undershirts helping to keep us warm on long walks to school, and they would be packed in the hump-backed trunk that sat under the west window in the bedroom I shared with my sister Audrey. Of course Father insisted on wearing his undershirt, long sleeves and all, under his work shirt long into the summer. He gave up this combination only when Mother snatched them off the chair by his bed when he was sleeping, and when the heat of the summer had the rest of us panting. There were no clothes clos-

ets in that old log house, and no storage cupboards, and no attic to store things away one season to the next,. Gradually winter outerwear would be hung on the clothes line, or thrown over the wire fence in the back yard to get a good airing, always a chore for a warm sunny day. Then each piece examined by Mother, buttons replaced, seams sewn and spots removed, would be packed into a big cardboard box scrounged from Briscoe’s General Store. Between each piece of clothing, Mother would tuck in a few mothballs. When the box was put in the boys’ bedroom, the whole upstairs smelled of the mothballs. The Findlay Oval would yet be moved out into the summer kitchen. Father thought that idea was just about the craziest notion he ever heard in his life. “Three generations of Hanemans have lived with the cook stove in the kitchen 12 months of the year,” he’d lament. But Mother insisted the big lumbering stove be moved to the summer kitchen, rolled out by every hand in the house on two logs, the stove pipes taken down, repainted and a smaller portion of pipe poked

through a hole in the summer kitchen wall. But the biggest change to me, the one I looked forward to most, was when the parlour would be open for the summer. All winter the door which separated it from the kitchen was closed tightly, a thick braided rug jammed along the bottom of the door to keep out the cold air. You could see your breath in the parlour if you had to go in to get the Bible off the twig table, or the picture album. It was almost like the parlour was

no longer part of the house. And now the door was flung wide, the one window opened to get rid of the musty smell, and the house was ready for summer. The last job was done. Spring was upon us, and soon the heat of the summer would penetrate the logs, and after working so hard to keep the house warm over the winter, Mother’s next challenge would be to keep the heat outside, and capture inside what cool air she could.

The Secret to

Glowing Skin

Training

Beauty is from the inside out and the secret to glowing skin is about nourishing your body. Our top 5 tips to glowing skin are:

Cardiovascular fitness is one of the major benefits of circuit training. Your heart rate remains elevated and sustained above resting level throughout the workout. Both your lungs and hearts efficiency can improve with this training method.

1. Eat Low Glycemic Foods: A high glycemic diet tends to spike blood sugar and insulin which can contribute to acne breakouts. Stick to a whole foods, plant-rich diet low in processed food, sugar and caffeine.

2. Avoid Food Sensitivities & Allergies: There is a strong link between high dairy consumption and skin maladies such as acne and eczema.

3. Sleep On It: Getting at least 8 hours of restful sleep a night will help repair and restore skin; the hours of sleep achieved before midnight are the most effective.

4. Get Your Omegas: Omega 3 fatty acids are inflammation busters and skin lubricators, the perfect ingredient for radiant skin!

Preparation Time: 5 min | Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 Fillet 2 lbs salmon, cut into 4 pieces 1 tsp Farm Boy Lemon Garlic Dressing Peppery Mango Salsa 1 small red onion, diced 2 limes, freshly juiced 1/4 cup yellow and red 3 tbsp olive oil peppers, diced 1 avocado, peeled and sliced 2 tbsp zesto pesto or Sea salt and freshly your favorite pesto ground pepper to taste ¼ cup mangos, diced TM

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place salmon fillets on a parchment paper lined baking tray and drizzle with Farm Boy Lemon Garlic Dressing. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Peppery Mango Salsa: combine onion, yellow & red peppers, mangos, lime juice, olive oil and pesto in a small bowl and mix well. Serve salmon, layer avocado slices on top and garnish with salsa. Use sea salt and pepper to taste.

This form of training also promotes fat loss. Circuit training provides more fat and calorie burning than traditional weight lifting programs. More work is performed in less time, which results in greater caloric expenditure during the workout. Lean muscle mass is also improved which in turn increases your metabolism and allows you to burn more fat throughout the day. The benefits of circuit training are endless, it is a great way to lose fat mass quickly, build strength and tone, as well as improve your heart and lungs.

Bell time changes, new walk zones proposed for west end schools Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Thankfully for parents proposed bell time changes for schools in west Ottawa are, for the most part, not as drastically different as those seen in other areas of the city. Public consultations are ongoing for the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority’s plan to revamp its schedule this coming school year following an extensive efficiency review. Besides bell time changes, the authority has created new walk zone maps for students that take into account hazards seen during their survey of the area. Under the proposed changes, Connaught Public School’s start time would be pushed ahead 10 minutes to 8:30 a.m., while Elmdale Public School’s bell time would advance 15 minutes, to 9:15 a.m. Moving further west, Broadview Public School’s bell time will move five minutes ahead to 9:15 a.m., W.E. Gowling Public School will fall back 20 minutes to 8:00 a.m., Our Lady of Fatima School will fall back 15 minutes to 8 a.m.,

and D. Roy Kennedy Public School would see its bell time advance 15 minutes to 9:15 a.m. In the Bayshore-Britannia area, proposed changes are greater. Bell times for Bayshore Public School leap ahead 35 minutes to 9:15 a.m, while Regina Street Public School will see a half-hour advance to 8:30 a.m. Other schools in the far west end would see less significant bell time changes of 15 minutes or less. On April 26, the near-west elementary schools were the subject of a consultation held at Fisher Park Elementary School. Transportation authority general manager Vicky Kyriaco guided residents through the reasoning behind the changes, though the questions asked centered around the criteria and reasoning that crafted the new walk zones. Distance, plus any temporary or permanent hazards that lie between a student’s home and their school are all taken into account when determining whether a student walks or gets bused to school, said Kyriaco. Those hazards include hightraffic and construction areas,

paths that aren’t maintained in winter, and poor visibility. “We assign points (to these) that determines who buses and who doesn’t,” said Kyriaco, adding that, in some cases, mitigation measures such as crossing guards can be added to make the route safe. This fall, the authority is embarking on a pilot project that would see three “walking school bus” routes formed as a pilot project. These would be pre-determined routes where a qualified, paid leader would guide a group of children to school each day. This pilot would be a collaboration with Ottawa Public Health, Green Communities Canada, the Ottawa Safety Council and the city’s transportation planning. The details of the walk zones and bell times can be FILE found online at schoolbus.ca. Proposed bell time changes to schools in Ottawa’s west end are not as drastic as in other There, parents will also find areas of the city. a survey and feedback form they can fill out to list their concerns or point out a hazard that might have gone unnoticed. Emails can be sent to feedback@ottawaschoolbus. ca Feedback will be collected until July 15.

What can I expect at a HOLIDAY RETIREMENT residence? A common misconception about retirement living is that you’ll be giving up your lifestyle.

Pet Adoptions

Could you be the right match for Otis (A166398), a pug / Chihuahua mix who makes fast friends with everyone he meets? This super-social guy loves to meet and greet everyone he sees – he is endlessly entertaining and enjoys having an audience. Otis would rather not be a couch potato, so he will be well-matched with a companion who can take him on multiple daily walks to help him achieve a slim and trim figure! Otis lived with cats in his previous home and really enjoys the company of other dogs. He will be right at home in a household with kids older than five and dogs that will appreciate his spunky personality.

OTIS (A166398)

For more information on Otis and all our adoptable animals, stop by the OHS at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Check out our website at ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of the animals available for adoption.

Ottawa Humane Society: Readying animals for happily ever after conditions and will provide life-saving medicine as needed. They spay or neuter the animal. It’s vaccinated and microchipped. A specialist temperament assesses dogs before they’re ready for forever homes, ensuring the best match possible for a successful, permanent placement. Some animals spend time living with OHS foster volunteers before they’re ready for adoption. These animals may be recovering from surgery or may be nursing kittens and puppies or pregnant cats or dogs.

When they’re ready for forever homes, OHS adoption staff work to make sure adopters are matched with the right pet for them – and for the animal. The OHS follows up with adopters and offers community programs to help strengthen the bond between the owner and their new pet, such as dog obedience classes. The journey from arrival at the OHS to your doorstep is a comprehensive process with the goal of a happy and healthy life for your pet in its new forever home – with you.

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

By mid-afternoon, about 500 people braved the drizzle at the third annual day-long event, held for the first time at Hintonburg Park. Admission was free and proceeds from beer sales went in support of Ottawa Riverkeeper, a grassroots charity that strives to protect the health of the Ottawa River. The Brewery Market, which is modeled on similar brewery events in Toronto, will return to the park on July 5 and Oct. 25, and will feature different beer vendors.

The furry friend you adopt into your family will have arrived at the OHS in one of many different ways: surrendered by a previous owner, rescued from cruelty, or brought in as a stray. The OHS never turns away an animal in need. OHS vets may treat the animal for broken limbs or for other serious

Sports - Kanata’s baseball association is kicking off a new program this year to take disabled children off the bleachers and put them on the field. The Kanata Little League Baseball Association is tapping into the Challenger division program – an international program which guides associations in creating a division for kids with disabilities. The Challenger program is offered through Little League Canada and Baseball Canada, and operates just like every other little league division, except children are placed on teams based on ability rather than age. Jeff Dever, the Kanata baseball association’s vice president of house league programs, is leading the initiative. “One of the things I really love about integrating Challenger into Kanata Little League is we can say we provide programs for children, non-exclusive to ability,” said Dever. “We provide high-level, athletic opportunities for the kids that compete on the world stage, we provide house league programs for kids that just want to have fun, and then we can provide the Challenger program for all kids, regardless of their ability.” The division is open to children with just about any disability, said Dever, whether they use a wheelchair or have a mental or cognitive disability. In most ways, the Challenger division will run just like any other. The association provides equipment, jerseys, fields and coach training for volunteers who want to get involved. Challenger players would play against other Challenger division players in their ability ranges, and the program would be delivered by volunteers. To get the program running, the association is working to get the

word out to parents and those in various communities who would be interested in volunteering. “We need those people that are willing to put their heart into Challenger like they do at other levels to really make the program happen,” said Dever. So far, the league has had contact with parents in the down syndrome community who are interested in being involved in the program, but hopes that many other players, parents and volunteers will be interested.
