News- When the South Nepean Muslim Community was unable to get an occupancy permit, for their partly complete new mosque, the Barrhaven United Church council returned a favour of friendship, offering to host the group at their church hall for the duration of Ramadan. “Zijad made the initial move to be friends,” said Reverend Maggie Melansom, at Barrhaven United Church, said of the Imam Zijad Delic. “He noticed we had a food cupboard and offered for extra hands from his community to help.” Ramadan starts on June 28 and is one of the most widespread and sacred 30 days in the Islamic year. Participants abstain from eating food during daylight hours in hopes of separating the physical world from the spiritual. They bring closure to the month with a huge celebratory feast of gratefulness, called Eid alFitr or the feast of breaking fast, on July 28. Community members of the Muslim faith have had to arrange alternative spaces to conduct their services and prayers until construction is completed on a local mosque, being erected at 3020 Woodroffe Ave. Its projected completion date is not until late October or early November of this year.

News - A Grade 5 class at Jockvale Elementary School received a national entrepreneurial award for their creativity. Alison Sinclair’s class teamed up with Christine Simpson, a manager at the Bells Corners branch of the Bank of Montreal and an organization called The Learning Project – which supports experiential learn-

ing initiatives in public schools in Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary and Montreal – to create the Imagination Crew. The class taught their peers and residents of Barrhaven to repurpose items and make them into something new and fabulous. “They made everything from jewellery to robots with found materials,” said Torre Hanson, the project manager at the Learning Project. Sinclair said her class worked on a book

that showcased some up-cycled items made from repurposed materials. They also held an assembly to show their classmates how to turn another person’s junk into their own personal treasure. Students brought their book out into the community and managed to sell $800 worth of advertising to local Barrhaven businesses.

‘ ... a chance to know each other’ Continued from page 1

One of the well-known temporary prayer sites is located at a City of Ottawa facility: a schoolhouse on the corner of Jockville and Strandherd roads. “We’re all people of faith and it’s when we come together that great things happen,” said Melansom. “It just makes sense to help.” The new mosque and community centre is expected to have prayer space to accommodate 750 people, a community hall, a recreational sports facility, libraries and classrooms. In light of the circumstances, the Muslim community partnered with Barrhaven United Church to conduct a three-part educational series called Islam 101. AN OPPORTUNITY

“It has introduced an opportunity for mutual communities to get a chance to know each other,” said Melansom. Members of surrounding clergies and the community gathered at the Barrhaven United Church to learn about Islam from guest host Imam Zijad Delic on May 21. Topics discussed included statistics of growing Muslim populations in the Ottawa region, marriage, treatment of elders and women’s rights. “Zijad is so well-versed, and this was very informative,” said Brenda Whyte, a curious agnostic community member. The event provided a welcoming evening for 70 public supporters to openly engage and ask questions about the Muslim faith and Islamic traditions. As Delic told stories to illustrate his points he referenced his personal experiences and verses from the Qur’an.

Students were assigned roles like product development, logo design and marketing and sales. “It was a great experiential learning exercise,” Sinclair said. As part of the project, Hanson visited the class once a week to lend his entrepreneurial expertise to the students. Hanson said in three out of the last five years, students in Ottawa received the most awards of any other region during the national competition held once the projects are submitted in the spring. “There are some great ideas coming out of Ottawa,” he said.

Seniors getting savvy in Barrhaven News - Regal Lifestyle Communities and Barrhaven Retirement Community are helping seniors become savvier about services in Ottawa. The retirement community will host a trade show, dubbed the Senior Savvy Fair, at the Nepean Sportsplex on June 12 from 9 to 4 p.m. Jennifer Hess, the general manager of the Barrhaven Retirement Community, said the event will feature 40, senior-friendly companies from the Ottawa area. “It will have everything from companies who specialize in helping people downsize to estate planning and exercise programs,” Hess said. A representative from the Royal Bank will lead an information session about fraud. Doug Smith, a former NHL player, will talk about brain care and Max Keeping will make an appearance. Local singer Roxy Swan will provide the entertainment. The event will be non-profit, with all the proceeds from table sales going to the geriatric outreach program on Robertson Road operated by the Queensway Carleton Hospital. There will be no cost for admission. Regal Lifestyle Communities operates seven retirement homes from Orléans to Barrhaven.

Traffic safety 101

T

he traffic issues putting kids at risk at Robert E. Wilson Public School on McArthur Avenue are common across the city. The problem deserves a real solution and parents should support changes to make kids safer. R.E. Wilson is located on a road where drivers are unlikely to slow down to the speed limit. The children attending the school are in kindergarten to Grade 6; not a good mix with fast cars. On top of that risk, parents try to get their cars in and out of the parking lot before the bell rings and after school. Many may be in a rush to get to work each morning. The school’s principal calls the situation dangerous and says there are often near misses. Parents have been asked to drop off kids along the road, right onto paths that link to the school, but many still choose to head into and out of the parking lot. The parent council would like to see a permanent solution: closing the parking lot. Some parents have reportedly responded with anger when it’s suggested the lot could be closed. The school has done just about everything possible to reduce the risk of a serious injury or death, including efforts to get more kids to walk or ride bikes to school.

A crosswalk has been added at the corner of McArthur Road and Brant Street, the speed limit is marked at 40 kilometres per hour during school hours and a loading zone – perfect for dropping off or picking up kids – has been established. A recent police blitz resulted in 40 tickets being handed out, but the deterrent value of a crackdown is – as expected – fleeting. It’s also expensive to have officers staking out a school zone over and over again. Clearly the parking lot should be closed if that’s the greatest risk to kids. It’s time for the city to step in and install traffic calming measures. They don’t have to be expensive. Narrowed traffic lanes can help, and also have the advantage of making the road crossing shorter for pedestrians. The area sounds like a perfect spot to join a pilot project now underway in a few areas of the city that has seen flexible posts installed down a road’s centreline with the speed limit marked on them. This visually narrows the road and can result in lower speeds. If there’s ever a place that deserves added attention, it’s a school zone. No kid should be hurt or killed because they’re heading to or from school.

Our lawns tell story of the new impersonal campaign

E

ven in the last week of the Ontario election campaign, it was hard to find campaign signs on people’s lawns. True, there was no shortage of them on public property. But if you walked along neighbourhood streets and looked for them in front of people’s houses, no go. You could walk an entire city block without seeing a lawn that had a sign on it. Fewer people than usual felt committed enough about a candidate or a party to allow a sign on their lawn. That could mean a lot of things, the most important of which was that the election was not connecting with people. Why would that be? There will be no shortage of blame to spread around. The parties and their leaders will get some of it, for failing to excite the people. The people will get some blame too, for being too busy with trivial matters to care about who governs them. And then there are the media, always available when blame is being shared around. The news media accentuated the negative, played up insignificant controversy and gave insufficient time and space to more serious policy matters. You can find something to agree with all of these explanations, but there are other things to

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town consider, such as the way election campaigns have been changing in recent years. This one was a good example. The parties no longer campaign the way they once did. They now focus almost entirely on media, old and new, and the effect may be to make individuals feel less involved in campaigns. There was more door-knocking in previous campaigns. The odds were that at some point, one or more candidates would come to your door, often accompanied by some of your neighbours. That would help to personalize the campaign for you. You would also see your neighbours at the all-candidates debate at a school or church hall near you. After listening to the candidates and perhaps asking a question or two, you would talk with your friends and neighbours about

what you’d heard. Whichever candidate you supported, you had a sense that the election touched your neighbourhood in some way. And you might put out a sign. Today’s parties don’t seem to care about that. In today’s style of campaigning, there is heavy reliance on television advertising, which involves the individual voter not at all, other than by changing the channel. More recently, there is an increasing emphasis on the Internet and social media. There is Internet advertising and an endless barrage of tweets. Your computer replaces your doorstep. While this means that, theoretically, messages from the parties can reach more people than ever before, the overall effect is to make them less personally involved. They have less personal contact with candidates; they see lots of them, but only as images on a screen. At the same time that electronic contact with voters has expanded, face-to-face contact has diminished. You have probably noticed news articles during the campaign about the decreasing number of all-candidates meetings. This has been interpreted as part of a political strategy to keep tight control on the message and the candidates, to avoid at all costs unscripted encounters with voters and journalists.

The idea is to minimize risk, to avoid situations where candidates have to think on their feet, perhaps make a mistake or show that they don’t know all the answers. Political junkies may find this risk-free campaign interesting to watch, but for most of us these changes in campaign style have created far too much distance between us and the people we elect. The new breed of political strategist doesn’t seem concerned by this. The only goal is winning and if winning can be done without communicating, so much the better. But if it’s working for the parties, it’s not working for the people. The lawns tell the story.

Crowdfund locally COLUMN with Fuellocal.com The power of unions to motivate workers News – Local crowdfunding is only a click away with a new community-first web platform. Fuellocal.com is an exciting way for community projects, community causes and entrepreneurs to raise money through a safe, secure online presence. Crowdfunding is a method of collecting money from an online audience to fund a project, person or a cause. It’s the fastest growing sector of fundraising. Fuellocal.com is being marketed to local communities by Metroland Media. “Fuellocal.com is a technology platform that enables local businesses, charities, schools, sports teams and other groups, to raise money from their own community and beyond,” said Terry Kukle, Metroland’s vice-president of business development. “Until now, there’s been no effective platform for a community to get together to raise money for a local cause,” said Kukle. “Metroland is all about building our communities. Promoting Fuellocal.com is one more way of staying connected to the communities we serve.” More than 40,000 people, groups, businesses and nonprofits in 20 countries have raised more than $48,000,000 with FundRazr – the platform powering Fuellocal.com A fundraiser registers with Fuellocal.com and receives a web profile to promote their cause. This profile explains the fundraising goal and shows the progress of the fundraising efforts. “We know Fuellocal.com opens the door online to reach a myriad of new fundraising sources a community fundraising team or an individual might not otherwise be able to reach,” said Kukle. Metroland Media Group Ltd. is a dynamic media company delivering vital business and community information to millions of readers across Ontario each week, with 116 newspapers, numerous websites, other specialty and monthly publications, consumer shows and distribution operations.

A

few weeks ago, I got into a heated email debate with a colleague of mine about unions. The subject, loosely, was “have unions outlived their purpose?” My interlocutor said the days of unions as a necessary protector of workers are over, that unionized workplaces lead to lazy and unmotivated workers, and that these workers take advantage of their benefits at expense to their employers. It’s easy enough to flip that argument completely on its head -- that non-unionized workplaces lead to stressed out and burnt out workers, and that those without any kind of job security, medical insurance or pension are disloyal and unmotivated. Further, one could argue that employers who don’t offer benefits and pensions make corporate decisions at the expense of their employees. Don’t believe me? It may be worth taking at look at what actually motivates people to perform. Recently, I viewed an animation by RS Animate, which summarized the findings of several academic studies on motivation. What they found, ultimately, was that a sense of purpose and the opportunity to be creative were two things that drove people to their best performance. Surprisingly, however, the researchers found money to be a very limited motivator. People need to be paid enough money to take the issue of money off the table, they discovered. Beyond that comfort zone, the more money people were offered to do a task, the worse they performed. Experiments done by the authors of the book Happy Money produced similar results. The majority of American workers, the authors discovered, are motivated by wage increases up to a total salary of $60,000 per year. For every dollar

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse increase over and above that, however, the authors found a negative co-relation between money and happiness. In other words, the more money people made, the less happy they reported to be. SALARIES

What does all this have to do with unions? Unions negotiate and protect livable salaries with job security and benefits. Unionized workers are paid enough money to take the issue of money off the table which, if the studies above are correct, will lead to optimized performance and generally happy workers. We all know this isn’t a perfect formula. There are other motivation problems in unionized environments that need to be considered: restrictions on lateral movement, for example, or the lack of opportunities to innovate. But, as far as money goes, until we see

corporations match these healthy work environments without the negotiation and protection of unions, the latter, in my opinion, will continue to have a purpose. It’s easy to be jealous or critical of unionized workers. But let’s not forget that even those of us who are not unionized owe a lot to unions – legislated vacation time, sick days and 40-hour work week, to name a few examples. I’ve worked in both unionized and non-unionized newsrooms. I much prefer the former. While the latter pushed us to the brink daily – no lunch breaks, no vacation, overtime without pay – the unionized environment enforced the opposite, making us better prepared to bring our A-games to the table with every single story. Not to mention the fact that mandated breaks contributed to greater innovation and connection to colleagues and to the workplace generally.

City to host water roundtable June 14 Staff

News - The city wants input on what the municipal government and citizens can do to protect and preserve its water. Ideas for promoting understanding

about the health of Ottawa’s rivers, lakes and streams will be the theme of a “water roundtable,� to be held at city hall on Saturday, June 14. Anyone interested in participating must go to their city councillor for details. Questions about the event can

be addressed to waterroundtable@ottawa.ca. The roundtable is working towards a water environment strategy, which was recommended as part of the city’s Ottawa River Action plan. Environment committee chairwoman Maria

McRae, councillor for River Ward, has touted the roundtable event as a follow-up to the city’s recent approval of a strategy for greenhouse gases. Young people were asked to participate by designing a poster in the theme “water is life.� Each elementa-

ry school in Ottawa could submit one poster design, which can be drafted by an individual student or a group of pupils from grades 3, 4 and 5. The posters will be displayed at city hall and during the water roundtable on June 14.

Dufresne Furniture

Grand Opening By David Johnston Furniture shopping will never be the same. Often considered a confusing and overwhelming predicament by many would-be buyers, The Dufresne Group has revolutionized the furniture and appliance buying experience. Gone are the endless lines of merchandise and fast talking sales people focused more on commissions than customer satisfaction. Instead, the new Dufresne Home Furnishings store at 290 West Hunt Club Road is a state-of-the-art journey of discovery into what will enhance and improve your life and style. “Our goal is to ensure our guests find the furniture, mattresses and appliances that work best for them and make their life simpler,” said Troy Davis, President TDG. “It’s about finding that perfect fit for their unique life and style, all within their budget.” Walking into the fresh, bright store is in itself an experience. You enter Inspiration Way, and are greeted by friendly staff who assist you with your own personal journey of discovery to reveal what furnishings and accessories best suit your needs. “With this new store, we went back to the drawing board,” said Davis. “We explored every corner of the shopping journey and asked ourselves how we could make the experience easier, less stressful, and ultimately, fun.” The result was “collections merchandising” rather than traditional category arrangement. The new location, carefully crafted into 23,000 square feet of showroom, features three main furniture style collections: Current Classic, Cozy Casual and Modern Chic. A couple minutes at a conveniently located computer screen allows the shopper to discover their own style and then simply stroll to that section of the well-laid out store. There they will find a myriad of choices awaiting as the My Custom concept allows buyers to match colours, fabrics, finishes, legs and much more.

“To find that perfect fit, Dufresne combines education, expertise and science into the guest experience—one that could be better described as a journey,” said Davis. “Our sales professionals take the time to get to know each guest and their specific style preferences, room situation and lifestyle needs.” First, a customer selects their “fit”, starting with the largest piece for the room, such as a sofa or dining set. Then personal creativity takes over as you can modify almost every aspect of any piece of furniture. Choose a frame and then customize it with arms from Creighton, Leeds, Marymount, Meadowridge and Ottawa. Finally, you can “refine your look” by selecting the colour and fabric that fit your décor. “Extensive custom order options and complete room solution packages with unique vertical merchandising help ensure a complete offering to the guest,��� said Davis. Find your ultimate life and style by simply taking the journey. Cozy Casual is a relaxed collection, combining comfortable, over-sized pieces with warm fabrics and distressed leathers for a vintage look. Modern Chic features simple, clean lines matched with bold accents for an urban expression. Current Classics creates timeless elegance with antique-inspired designs and a sophisticated attention to detail.

Dufresne redefines furniture shopping at new Hunt Club location “You dream, we listen, and together we discover,” said Davis. And when it comes to dreaming, Davis says Dufresne has also revolutionized the art of sleeping well.

Dufresne President Troy Davis displays some of the many options available to create your custom table from the My Custom collection.

It’s not just about product and price; our focus is on providing a sleep solution that lays the foundation for a healthier life.” The same can be said for appliances. The only difference is that the journey starts with a functional assessment to determine what type of machine best suits the application. With all the top brands available, such as Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool and Maytag, the Dufresne team can easily match you to the appliance that fits best. Ottawa Dufresne franchise owner Andre Desrochers is proud of the new location, and thanked his staff and contractors for their dedication and long hours to bring the project to fruition. “We are very excited to be in this new location with such an amazing store,” said Desrochers. “A lot of effort went into making this a reality and now we are ready to launch a whole new way to buy furniture. Our visual presentation team did an amazing job and I am proud of the efforts of all my staff.” This is the second Dufresne location in Ottawa. The existing Gloucester location at 1901 Cyrville Road has also recently been renovated to match the new style of the Hunt Club store. Both stores are open Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. You can find out more about the Dufresne “collections” buying experience online at www.dufresne.ca.

“Walk the journey and take five minutes to find the best sleep of your life,” says Davis. The first step is to analyze how you sleep. With the aid of high-tech science, the staff at Dufresne reveal what you need to sleep better. Then you sample the mattresses and pillows that suit your profile. “This takes the guess work out of mattress

Teen’s family in shock, trying to deal with youngster’s death Trevor Greenway Metro News

News - A 15-year-old Ottawa student is grappling with the loss of his 14-year-old sister after their family SUV rolled over in upstate New York Sunday, killing the girl and seriously injuring his mom and grandma. Joe Rabay is still in shock as he tries to come to grips with the family tragedy two days later and has begun having nightmares about his fallen comrade Carine Rabay – the young sibling he used to do everything with. “Last night, I was waking up in the middle of the night with my body tingling,” Joe Rabay told Metro Tuesday morning. “Nightmares and I feel her here. I feel her presence.” The St. Pius High School student is stranded in Ottawa while his mom and grandmother undergo extensive surgery in New York for broken ribs, a broken arm and a broken jaw. He said his 44-year-old mom and 77-year-old grandma aren’t yet aware Carine has died and won’t be told the terrible news until after surgery. His nine-year-old sister was also in the car, but was not injured.

“I need to stay strong in front of my little sister. When my mom comes back, I will have to calm her down, she is the one I am most worried about,” said Joe Rabay. “My dad is in denial, he feels so guilty because he was driving. It’s hard.” Five people were travelling in the family’s SUV Sunday in Watertown, New York when Police say 50-yearold driver Joseph Rabay veered off the road, struck a guardrail and rolled down a steep embankment. Carine, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. Although it has hardly sunk in yet, Joe Rabay knows how much his sister will be missed – from the casual bike rides the two would take, to the more intense kickboxing classes they recently started taking together. It’s hard to be at home, as every time he walks past her room, he pictures her sitting there. “Everything I do, I see her. Even when I go boxing - the thing that makes me forget about everything I see her. It’s going to be very hard, I love my sister,” he said, fighting back tears. “If I go biking, I see her. If I go up-

stairs to my room, her room is right beside me, her washroom is right beside me, everything.” Joe Rabay has also started a seat belt campaign called “Wear it for Carine” and is handing out bracelets at Frank Ryan Catholic Intermediate School, where she attended Grade 8. Friends at the school dressed in pink Tuesday to honour their late friend and classmate with her favourite colour. “Carine was one of the sweetest girls ever,” said friend Belle Gladu. “She was so funny, and she had the greatest heart. It’s not fair that she lost her life at this age because she had so much to live for and I am so sad.” The Ottawa Catholic School Board issued a statement on Monday on the tragic loss of one of their students. The student services staff from the board, along with the school’s own staff will be providing comfort and support to anyone in need. The school community and the Ottawa Catholic School Board will pray for Carine and her family. The Rabay family is still in New York undergoing surgery, but are expected to make full recoveries.

University honours anatomy donors at annual memorial service Donors give bodies to science post-mortem Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News – John said father’s decision, made at the age of 81, was a surprise at first. He said his father – a farmer from a small northern Ontario town – probably didn’t have much more than a Grade 9 education. “It seemed odd that he’d want to donate his body to science,” John said. “But I realized it was just another way for him to give back.” Hartley Houston decided to donate his body to the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa while his granddaughter was studying to be a physiotherapist. “He said, ‘Someone donated their body so my granddaughter could be a physiotherapist,’” his son John said during a memorial service hosted by the University at

Patrick Marshall, spiritual care counsellor at the University of Ottawa, leads the crowd in a prayer during the University’s memorial service for those who have donated their bodies to science at the Pinecrest Cemetery on June 3. the Pinecrest Cemetery on June 3. “ ‘Someone did it for her; I have to do it for someone else.’”

John said his father lived a modest lifestyle, but never failed to help out a neighbour.

He was a member of the Lions Club, a volunteer with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and the Ca-

nadian Cancer Society. Cathy Delany, whose parents donated their bodies 27 years apart, said it took her

20 years to attend the annual memorial hosted by the university. Her mother, who died from cancer in 1974, was the first. “Mom’s always been able to find ways to help others,” Delany said. “Leave it to her to find a way to help after death.” Her ashes are buried at the Pinecrest Cemetery. Delany’s father, Bill, followed suit in 2007 – though his ashes were scattered on a ski slope, sailable water and in Vancouver’s English Bay. “I am honoured to be part of this ceremony,” Delany said to the students. “My parent’s gift was for you. You are part of their legacy.” Elise Azzi, a second-year medical student at the university said she was at a loss to express her thanks to the family members of those who had donated their bodies. “They humanize our education experience and exemplify bravery, altruism and selflessness,” she said. As part of the ceremony, medical students read off the name of each donor since 1969.

Marvelous Mayfair returns, helping food cupboard News - Olivia Monsour peers up from under the brim of her hat with a big smile holding a balloon animal she named kitty, at the seventh annual Barrhaven Mayfair on May 31. The Mayfair is a local carnival hosted at Farley Mowat Public School, drawing families from across the city each year. The event raised over $7,000 to fuel projects at Farley Mowat and in the school community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The committee is proud to be able to donate $660 to the Barrhaven Food Cupboard,â&#x20AC;? said Dorinda McNamee, the mother of a Grade 5 student, and co-chair of the Farley Mowat school council. The council hopes to focus some of the funds on playground improvement, adding equipment with a musical element, new benches and play structures to accommodate more children, in light of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s implementation of full day kindergarten. They also plan to help the library stock its shelves with new books, provide student math aides and help fund school trips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents and council did a great job organizing this year and volunteer help has been phenomenal,â&#x20AC;? said teacher, Kevin Doan. Each year, the fair is known for its exceptional volunteer turnout, comprised of community members, parents, faculty and students of all ages. Over 100 high school volunteers and 50 community members helped set up, serve food, run games and staff the booths over two days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are an army,â&#x20AC;? said co-chair Kristen Juneck, commending everyone involved from the committee and community on their efforts and contribution. McNamee said it took three hours to set up inside the school the night before the event and three hours in the morning to arrange the outdoor activities. Grade 6 students Selam, Elizabeth, Bailey and Siyona spent most of their day in the ďŹ eld. They were proud to be playing a

skee-ball variation called the toilet toss, knowing that some of the funds raised would help along savings for their year-end camping trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year the Grade 6 classes go on an overnight camp trip,â&#x20AC;? said McNamee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students raise money through other manners on their own as wellâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rite of passage,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Mayfair presents opportunities for people to connect with social groups like the South Nepean Muslim Community, ULearnToTalk Club which helps students with public speaking and leadership skills, and Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s science, art and nature museums. Children were able to interact with the RCMP bear mascot, and costumed characters like Clifford the Big Red Dog, Merida from Brave, and Elsa from Frozen. The Ottawa police and tactical squad showed up to demonstrate their rappelling skills, and also tossed roofed balls down to kids on the tarmac. Overwhelming guest attendance had volunteers making multiple trips to the grocery store throughout the day after running out of buns and drinks at the barbecue booth, said Adam Pilmoor, a Grade 8 volunteer. Beyond spending a family-friendly day in the sun, many parents use this occasion as an opportunity to introduce their kids, who will be attending in the fall, to the school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think it is important to incorporate families,â&#x20AC;? said McNamee. Besides Mayfair, the council helps to set up a number of events to get families active in their childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learning. The board recently hosted a math night where advisers revealed teaching methods and informed parents how they can help to keep their kids on track at home.

Windmills files application for Chaudiere development Developer seeks to update Secondary Plan to include proposed Domtar project

Steph Willems Steph.willems@metroland.com

News - Windmill Development Group has submitted an Official Plan amendment in support of its planned redevelopment of the former Domtar lands near Chaudiere Falls. The developer envisions a sustainable mixed-use district containing jobs, residences and public

space in what is being called the Chaudiere District, encompassing six hectares of land on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River and almost nine hectares in Gatineau. Contained within the application are a zoning bylaw amendment, a development master plan and a twostage site plan control proposal. In the lead-up to the application, Windmill consulted with numerous stakeholders, including the cities of

Ottawa and Gatineau, the National Capital Commission and the public. According to the application’s planning rationale (prepared by Fotenn Consultants in conjunction with a team of architects and urban planners), the redevelopment would be guided by a series of 10 environmental principles. The principles dictated by the One Planet Community program

demand, among other things, that any building constructed must be energy efficient and generate no waste, while the surrounding environment must be respected as much as possible. “It is anticipated that the Chaudiere region will become a showcase of sustainable development, a One Planet Community, and a mixed-use neighbourhood that will be among the most desirable communities in Ottawa-Gatineau,” according to the rationale. The land vacated by Domtar in 2007 includes a series of islands in the Ottawa River at the north end of Booth Street, as well as a portion of the Gatineau shoreline. The expansive site contains a number of buildings, some of which would be incorporated into the development. However, given their advanced age, some buildings aren’t candidates for re-use. “Several buildings will not be able to be restored and are unsafe,” states the rationale. “Given its industrial past, the entire site is heavily contaminated and will require extensive cleanup prior to any development moving forward.” The Ontario lands encompass Chaudiere and Albert islands, with Chaudiere Island split into west and east districts, each containing significant amounts of park space along its shoreline. The concept plan outlined by Windmill shows 13 distinct development blocks on the Ottawa side, and 27 in Gatineau. Within the Ottawa blocks, 11 will contain residential uses, 10 will contain retail uses, four will have an office component, and one will be used as a hotel. Broken down into percentage of floor area, the site contains 78 per cent residential, five per cent retail, 12 per cent commercial/office, three per cent hotel, and one per cent each for community building and cultural areas. A 15-storey tower is proposed for the redevelopment of Chaudiere Island. Also included in the plan is an active transportation network aimed at fostering transit and cycling use – part of the redevelopment plan’s sustainability model. The comment period for the application is underway. Should the Official Plan amendment be passed at later date by city council, the application will update the Lebreton Flats character area in the central area secondary plan

City launches $4.6-million lawsuit against bridge designer City staff disciplined – but not fired – over pedestrian bridge fiasco Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city launched a $4.6 million lawsuit against the Airport Parkway footbridge designer and has disciplined staff over the botched project. The lawsuit filed against WSP Canada Inc., which was known as Genivar when the city hired the company to design a gateway pedestrian and cycling bridge connecting the South Keys community to Greenboro shopping centre and Transitway station in 2010. Major issues with the design of the bridge forced the city to stop construction and hire another firm, Delcan, to revise the plans and take over construction. Now, the bridge that was originally slated for completion in 2012 is expected to be done by the end of this year.

“I have applied what is, in my opinion, the right level of discipline to the staff that were involved in the project.” KENT KIRKPATRICK CITY MANAGER

During a finance and economic development committee meeting on June 3, councillors received an update on the city’s actions following a damning independent report on the project from March that slammed the bridge designer and city staff. The report from SEG Management Consultants, Inc. detailed staff communication issues and faulty procedures that contributed to the problems plaguing the project. Watson confirmed on June 3 that no city staff had lost their jobs over the fiasco, but disciplinary letters had been appended to staff files and there was at least one suspension without pay, although the mayor wouldn’t say how many staffers has been suspended, nor their seniority or the duration of the suspension. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick declined to go into detail about what disciplinary action he doled out. “I have applied what is, in my opinion, the right level of discipline to the staff that were involved in the project,” he said after the meeting. Even councillors were left in the dark about the details of the disciplinary action, despite the finance and economic committee going into a private “in camera” session to discuss personnel matters. Information from the SEG report and a separate city auditor general report on procedural issues have prompted the city to make changes to its protocols for communication on infrastructure projects and when managers should get involved, Kirkpatrick said. That “culture change” in the department includes more than 30 different actions that will all be implemented by 2015, he said. “I am confident by the end of this year the staff in (infrastructure services) will be well focused on the kind of oversight that’s required in managing consul-

tants and contractors, specifically with regards to risk identification, budget and schedule,” he said. Kirkpatrick and Watson agreed that while some of the blame for the project going off the rails lies with city staff, they focused the brunt of the blame on the bridge’s design – hence, the lawsuit. “The primary responsibility for what has happened and has been the failure of this project to date is the responsibility of the design engineers,” Kirkpatrick said. Although the dollar value of the lawsuit isn’t as large as some of the city’s past legal actions, Kirkpatrick said seeking $4.6 million is a “significant lawsuit” given the small size of the project. The money being sought would cover the cost overruns of having to redesign and rebuild components of the bridge, which originally had a $6.8-million price

tag when the project was launched in 2010. The city’s $4.6-million lawsuit adds to the mess of litigation already underway as a result of the bridge project, with contractors and subcontractors Watson said the issues with the pedestrian bridge have caused ongoing frustration but said they should be viewed in context. “We had over the course of the last several years literally hundreds of projects because of the infrastructure funds from the other levels of government. Well over 95 per cent of those projects arrived on time and on budget,” he said. “The challenge with this project is it’s way off budget, has not been properly executed, there are problems with everything from the cement to the design ... and it’s a very high-profile project. People see it going back and forth from the south end and the airport.”

Paradox show to hit studio theatre News - Fresh from his show Mind Games, which aired on Rogers Cable last fall, mentalist Jaymes White will kick off his new Paradox Tour at the Centrepointe Studio Theatre on June 12. White, a Nepean native and Carleton University grad, has been working on writing Paradox for the last year. He did a test show last summer, with an audience of 150. “It’s a really audience driven show,” he said. “It’s like they’re on a group mission to solve a problem.” For his work, White draws from his psychology degree. He also uses his acting chops for showmanship

and calculates odds using statistics and demographic information. White has been fascinated with magic since the age of six. He started doing street performances at 12 and moved onto stage shows in his late teens and early 20s. “When I was testing it out, I found that when I believed in what I was doing it always worked,” White said. “You have to go with your gut.” He felt so strongly about the tour that he started a Kickstarter campaign in February with a goal of $8,500, but organizers managed to collect close to $10,000. “We (the Jaymes White Entertainment Team) are so thankful and humbled by the support we have

received. It’s very motivating and exciting to know there is interest in what I do,” White said. “My team and I are ready to bring it to a larger audience.” Paradox will run for two nights at the Centrepointe Theatre on June 12 and 13. White promises to blow the audience members minds. “I guarantee you’ve never been to a show like it,” he said. Audience members are chosen to come on stage by White’s sidekick voodoo doll, Freddy. “I connect with them but they tell the story. They are the show,” White said. Tickets for the show are $33.75 and are available at www.centrepointetheatre.ca.

Notice of Completion of Environmental Study Report

Why? In 2013 City Council approved new Official Plan policies to create a more liveable Ottawa. To put these policies into action, the Zoning By-law needs to be updated. In some review areas, changes to existing Secondary Plans will also be made to permit the zoning updates to proceed.

The Environmental Study Report (ESR) for the Cambrian Road Widening Environmental Assessment (future realigned Greenbank Road to Jockvale Road) has been completed and has been placed on record June 12, 2014 for a 30-day public review period. In March 2013, the City of Ottawa initiated the Environmental Assessment for the proposed widening of Cambrian Road between the future Re-Aligned Greenbank Road and Jockvale Road. This study has been completed in accordance with the requirements for a Schedule “C” project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, 2011, which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Both the Barrhaven South Community Design Plan, (approved by Council in June 2006) and the City of Ottawa Transportation Master Plan (2013) identifies the requirement for widening of Cambrian Road from two to four lanes to accommodate future growth in the community.

How will this affect me? Zoning affects how land can be used on both public and private properties. It regulates things like types of housing, shops, schools, industries, as well as building heights and building densities.

CHEO opens new epilepsy monitoring unit Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News – Dr. Sharon Whiting motions to a bank of computer monitors stationed in the hallway outside two hospital rooms at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. The specialized high-tech equipment and dedicated beds are features of the hospital’s brand new epilepsy monitoring unit that opened on May 12, which is already making a difference in the lives of children and youth who either have epilepsy, or it’s suspected they may have the neurological disorder, which is characterized by seizures. “The (four) patients that have been admitted (so far) were patients who either had a diagnosis of epilepsy and we wanted to confirm where in the brain the seizures were coming from or we wanted to actually make sure that they had seizures,” said Whiting, an epileptologist – a neurologist with a subspecialty in epilepsy - and head of the hospital’s neurology division. “This has implications for all the patients in terms of their treatment and follow-up,” she said. On average about 200 new epileptic patients are seen at CHEO each year. About 100 of them will come into the new unit for comprehensive testing and diagnosis, effectively doubling the number of pediatric patients, and re-

ducing wait times, said Whiting. The unit is already booked until October, though the schedule can be shifted to accommodate more urgent cases, she said. Once admitted to the unit, two patients at a time can be monitored for an average of three days, from Monday to Friday. This gives the unit’s medical team, which now includes two new dedicated technologists, more time to collect data on the patient’s brain function – especially during a seizure – in a safe and controlled environment, said Whiting. While some patients can still be assessed in the hospital’s outpatient electroencephalogram lab as before, they are only monitored for 30 minutes to an hour between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Patients and their families often have to come back several days in a row so that a seizure can be recorded. “The downside of that is that if they had events during the night, you couldn’t capture those events because we send them home each day,” said Whiting, a Mooney’s Bay resident. “That was not a very efficient way. Parents had to take a lot of time off (from work). We may or may not capture the events.” Before the creation of the dedicated unit, these patients could be admitted to the hospital for overnight monitoring, but patients requiring more urgent care who were admitted through the

emergency department took precedence. “To get those patients previously admitted would take months,” said Whiting. To improve chances of recording a seizure, a patient’s medication dosages sometimes need to be tapered ahead of time. “You can’t do that process unless you’re sure you’ve got a bed,” she said. “So it meant that that patient coming in would stay even longer, so this has helped us with access, it has helped us with length of time that patient has to stay and very good information.” The new unit also comes with two new dedicated electroencephalogram or EEG machines, with video and audio capabilities, allowing the team to constantly record a patient’s brain function over a longer period of time. This allows the medical experts to make a more definitive diagnosis, and even rule out epilepsy altogether. Before the new unit was created, the equipment suffered wear and tear from being transported to various units in the hospital. “This way we’re in one location, we have a set number of trained staff, everything is very complete,” said Whiting, who also serves as a vice-dean at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Medicine. Precision means everything in her line of work.

The unit will allow doctors to more quickly determine if a patient is a candidate for surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. The comprehensive data gathered by the CHEO team at the unit will cut down on waiting times for assessments at the Toronto hospital. “Their waiting time could have taken up to a year to get assessed,” Whiting said. “Now with our unit we’re able to give them all this data when we send them on, and they analyze the data before they even see the patient. “And then that means the whole process is quicker for everybody.” TASK-FORCE EFFORTS

Whiting is part of a 15-member task force launched last year by Ontario’s Ministry of Health to examine how epilepsy care is delivered at district epilepsy centres, such as CHEO; regional epilepsy centres, where surgery is done; and the delivery of co-ordinated and standardized care across these sites and with family doctors. The team, comprised of epileptologists, nurses, technologists, senior administrators and representatives from the province’s Ministry of Heath, also examined the need for dedicated beds. They also created standardized guidelines on how the monitoring units should operate, taking into account safety aspects and the types of required

medical personnel required. “We realized there were many barriers and challenges,” Whiting said, adding that one hurdle for patients was the lack of dedicated monitoring units, which meant long wait times and erratic care. CHEO’s new monitoring-unit beds are two of 21 beds newly assigned for adult and pediatric patients with epilepsy or suspected epilepsy at hospitals in the University Health Network, and in London, Hamilton, Toronto and Ottawa. Two weeks before CHEO’s unit opened, a similar two-bed unit for adults was opened at the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus. There is potential to expand CHEO’s monitoring unit, depending on the feedback that comes out of an ongoing evaluation process, Whiting said. But, just weeks after its launch, she said she is already pleased with the positive impact the unit is having in providing more comprehensive care. “We have more time, more resources, more people,” she said. “It’s good.” BY THE NUMBERS:

• More than 70,000: number of Ontarians living with epilepsy, including 10,000 children • 46: average number of people diagnosed with epilepsy across Canada every day – most of them children.

Ottawa’s #1 Ranked Soccer Club OSU FORCE ACADEMY READY TO COMPETE FOR

National Team spot David Chung is ready to take the next step in an already impressive and flourishing soccer career, and for the U14-aged Ottawa South United Force player, that means trying to land a spot with Canada’s under-15 national team program. The OSU standout is in Toronto for a June 1-6 national camp as the U15 men’s side readies for competition in September. “We have all the best young soccer players in the country coming out and really showing what they got,” reports Chung. “To be in that group, it is really a good feeling.” Chung, who began playing soccer at age 3 and says he fell in love with the sport instantly, previously represented Canada in the 2012 Danone Nations Cup, a 40-country event that took him to Poland. Most recently, the midfielder/striker showcased his skills for the Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer during a one-week visit along with OSU Club Head Coach Paul Harris.

And carry a big stick Kaiser Tam performs a bo staff routine as a part of a demonstration by the Canadian Sport Martial Arts Academy at the Kanata Fitness and Health Show at the Bell Sensplex on May 31. The show featured different demos throughout the day as well as vendor booths.

“That was a big highlight for me,” signals Chung, who carries hopes of playing professionally in Europe in the future. “Just to be there and around those players, it was such a big deal for me. It was amazing.”

e n u J

%+&'#G%%&',)%,&*

During their stint in Vancouver, the OSU pair met up with Vana Markarian, a member of Ottawa’s first Ontario Youth Soccer League-champion team last summer who joined the Whitecaps youth academy earlier this year. “This isn’t a fluke,” Harris highlights. “(Chung) isn’t the first player from our club to have a chance like this.” Other players from the OSU Force Academy who have competed for their country in the past year include Kris Twardek (U17 Czech Republic), Vana Markarian (U17 Canada) and Zoom Langwa (U16 Canada).

Crossing the Finish Line

Those trailblazers have set the stage for numerous talented OSU prospects such as Chung to move on to higher levels of play, Harris notes. Combined with one of the country’s best training atmospheres for young players to reach their soccer dreams at OSU, Chung’s work ethic has been key to building his bright future in the game, details the former Everton FC academy coach. “We as a group have such high hopes for David, and many others within our club,” Harris indicates. “He has really excelled and he has just taken everything we have given him and hasn’t looked back.” A member of the Force’s undefeated U14 OYSL entry, Chung concurs that OSU has brought out the best in him. “It is such a good club and I am so happy to be part of it,” states the Goulbourn Middle School student. “They are so organized, everyone is so great and helpful and I can’t say enough good things on how the coaches have helped me.” Chung’s focus for the camp is on impressing another set of coaches and earning a spot on Team Canada. “I like my chances,” he says, acknowledging nonetheless that there are many other talented players who also crave a spot on the team. “I’m not nervous because I know what I am capable of. I am just going to go out and show what I’ve got.”

Shirley Seward

President Bill Michalopulos added that “David is the latest OSU player to show the aptitude and determination to have an opportunity at the next level. As a club, our primary goal is to provide for and facilitate these unique opportunities to deserving OSU players and to also deliver the proper technical environment to get the best out of our players. Continuous successes in OSU players obtaining these type of opportunities indicate that the OSU Force Academy is on the right track in leading player development in Ottawa and the Province of Ontario.

Wynne promises to make LRT a priority Liberal government is only one that will see project through: premier Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

KATRICE SUTHERLAND/METROLAND

Tim Hudak, right, and Lisa MacLeod answer questions from an audience of more than 300 supporters, regarding the PC party’s plans to save money by wiping out the Drive Clean program on June 4.

Penny-pinching, job-making Hudak News - Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak made it clear to Ottawa supporters that a PC government would not fuel the second phase of Ottawa’s light rail during the rally at Nepean Sportsplex on June 4. Hudak claimed the Liberals left too large a deficit in their term to promise a budget for more than the first half of the project. The PC party does not plan to revoke funds for phase one of the project, which is already underway, however the route planned to extend from Tunney’s Pasture to Bayshore will be put on the shelf indefinitely. “Tim and I met with Mayor Watson with respect to LRT,” said MacLeod. “They don’t have formal submission into the province yet, so

I suspect that they won’t until after their municipal election. For now, it’s speculative,” she said. Hudak added that any politician with a billion-dollar deficit promising projects worth billions more, is not going to deliver. “I’m so confident that with less government debt, lower taxes and affordable hydro we can create more jobs in the province of Ontario,” said Hudak. And exuding confidence Hudak repeated a promise telling voters that he would resign if he could not keep his promises on the million jobs plan coming to fruition over its projected eight years. See PCs, page 35

News – Ontario Premier Katheen Wynne travelled to Ottawa’s east end on June 4, making an appearance at Ottawa-Orléans Liberal candidate Marie-France Lalonde’s office. Her hot topic was transit, specifically the light rail transit phase two extension. As she spoke, a map of the extension hung in the background. She promised, if elected, to make funding the second phase a priority. The second phase would bring the LRT to Place d’Orléans. “Marie-France knows, and I know, how important this project is to the people of Orléans,” Wynne said to Liberal supporters inside the campaign office on Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard. Wynne said the Liberal government will divide $29 billion in transit and infrastructure projects into two different funds that are based on population, stating Ottawa’s gridlock is unacceptable. One fund would be for the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton, the other a $14 billion fund for the rest of the province. She claimed Tim Hudak would fund projects in the GTA over Ottawa. TORONTO SPENDING

“(Hudak will) take your LRT and plunk it down as a subway in downtown Toronto,” she said. “There’s already rivalry, do we need more?” Wynne said the Progressive Conservative party will not be committed to transit and infrastructure projects outside of Toronto, and there were

She highlighted Liberal successes through the last term to the crowd of all Liberal supporters and recognized outgoing MPP Phil McNeely who is retiring. She said Marie-France Lalonde is a strong candidate for the area. Lalonde thanked Wynne and said she was inspired by her leadership as she introduced the province’s premier. “I’m proud to serve my community under her leadership,” Lalonde said. Wynne also said the Liberals will fund the Ottawa River Action Plan,

which affects Orléans’ Petrie Island. She didn’t elaborate on questions about whether or not she would consider an alliance with the NDP. “I have worked in a minority parliament for the last 16 months. If that’s what the people of Ontario chose, we will continue to work in a minority with whoever the government is,” she said. “Beyond that, the hypotheticals get very abstract.”’ Hudak was in Orléans very early on in the campaign to help open Progressive Conservative candidate Andrew Lister’s office. The same day Wynne was at Lalonde’s office, Hudak made an Ottawa appearance at a Nepean town hall. R0012632919-0410

PC’s goals include wage freeze Continued from page 33

Hudak’s main goals, should his party be elected, are to “balance the books and reduce spending.” The Tory leader says his first step will be to reduce the size and cost of government by cutting his cabinet staff from 26 down to 16 ministers. He intends to cut the current 1.2 million workers in broader public sector down to 1.1 million to match the number of bureaucratic positions existing in 2009. He also intends to freeze wages of politicians across the board for at least two years, seeking to save $2 billion a year. It was stated that Liberals added 300,000 bureaucratic jobs to government during its

term and lost the same amount in manufacturing jobs. The PC’s million jobs plan aims to eliminate middle management in order to protect front-line positions, Hudak said. As people begin to retire, the PC’s will not fill new positions, allowing attrition to resolve the debt problems and help the party resist over-expenditure. Nepean resident John MacMillon is one of 60,000 people in equestrian industries affected by the Liberal plan regarding racetracks and casinos. “The Liberals almost decimate the industry, put a thousand jobs in Ottawa at risk and then hand out a subsidy,” said MacLeod. “The horse people of On-

tario are not asking for welfare, they are asking for opportunity.” Hudak says he will permanently shelve the modernization plan and instead build around the horse track on a smaller scale to ensure job protection. Students and community members in the crowd voiced concerns regarding tuition fees and the survival of small town colleges, asking if the Tories would continue the Liberal education plan. Due to high expenses of the plan, the answer was no. However, Hudak guaranteed that all students who have achieved the necessary grades would not be disqualified or restrained from education because of financial barriers.

Engineers grill candidates jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News- The Kanata Kareer Group hosted a debate of candidates with engineering backgrounds at Vitesse ReSkilling Canada Inc on May 23. The candidates included John Hansen, the NDP option for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, Conservative incumbent for Carleton-Mississippi Mills Jack MacLaren and Gordon Kubanek – an engineer-turned-teacher who is running for the Green Party in Nepean-Carleton. The Ottawa Chapter of the Professional Engineers of Ontario helped to select the candidates and provided most of the questions. Candidates were hit with questions about provincial changes to regulations that would remove the requirement for professional engineers to oversee some aspects of design work. Kubanek and Hansen supported keeping the requirement in place, but MacLaren said the government has to “get out of the way” if they want to encourage manufacturing business in Ontario. Most of the questions dealt with the unemployed or underemployed knowledge workers who are such a common part of the landscape in places like Canada. The debate moderator asked each candidate how their party would help to get people back to work. MacLaren said his party would cut corporate taxes from 11.5 per cent to eight per cent. He also said his party wouldn’t support the creation

of a provincial pension plan. “That’s just another payroll tax,” he said, adding he was open to suggestions from people in the industry. John Hansen, who was an engineer with Nortel, said corporate tax cuts don’t create jobs, and he said it would be worth putting money into more re-skilling programs like the Kanata Kareer Group or programs run by Vitesse. “Investing in smaller Canadian companies will help to bring jobs,” he said. Kubanek said mentorship programs to allow unemployed knowledge workers to keep their skills current or government funding to cover a productivity gap could help provide a bridge to a new job. “The government could provide subsidies to companies to cover a portion of their salaries while people get up to speed,” he said. “We have seen an unrestricted free market doesn’t work.” Candidates were also asked about their party’s commitment to infrastructure investment.

Hansen said the NDP wants to use a portion of federal gas taxes to fund infrastructure and transportation projects locally. Kubanek took a slightly different approach and said the Green Party wants to address urban sprawl and structural changes to how we get around. MacLaren said he’s hearing at doors that people want to see light rail in Kanata. He also said there needs to be investment on the Gardener Expressway in the Toronto area. “We could look at some private partnerships,” he said. When asked how his party would invest in students, MacLaren said his party would work to more closely align students with careers that have higher employment rates. “I don’t think reducing tuition is the answer,” he said. “We do need carpenters, plumbers and electricians, but we have many students graduating from university with no job prospects.” Hansen said his party plans to freeze tuition fees and interest rates on student loans.

Jobs key topic in Ottawa West-Nepean debate Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Incumbent Liberal candidate for Ottawa WestNepean Bob Chiarelli called the Progressive Conservative plan to cut 100,000 public sector jobs “scary” during a debate that aired on Rogers May 22. Jobs were a big part of the debate. Randall Denley, the PC candidate, took some fire for his party’s “million jobs plan” and conceded that no one knows how many jobs the plan will actually create. For his part, Chiarelli said some public sector job cuts would be necessary. “Maybe some job cuts are necessary,” Chiarelli said. “They probably are. But 100,000 in two or three years is absolutely irresponsible.” Chiarelli took fire from NDP candidate Alex Cullen and Alex Hill from the Green

Party for his government’s fiscal mismanagement. But Chiarelli said he is proud to bring the Liberal’s current budget to Ontarians. He said the PC’s “slash and burn” plan really only means paying off the deficit a year earlier. He stood by his party’s investments in healthcare and education – heralding the opening of new hospitals, as well as a 30 per cent reduction in college and university tuitions. But Denley called the tuition cuts a vote buyer, and defended his party’s plan to reduce the amount of educational assistance. “Ideally, we’d have three teachers in each classroom, but that just not realistic,” he said. Hill said the reason we are struggling to fund classrooms is because of the many different boards of education.

He said it would be part of his party’s plan to merge the Catholic and public boards and redirect those funds to students. “There are social and fiscal reasons for not funding the Catholic system,” Hill said, adding the board’s discrimination against the homosexual community is just one reason it shouldn’t be funded. Cullen said the tuition cuts

don’t go far enough. “Our students are coming out of university with a lot of debt,” he said. “Our party plans to remove the provincial interest on student loans and freeze tuition.” Energy costs were a key feature in the debate as well, with Chiarelli again on the defensive over the Green Energy Act and rising hydro

rates. Chiarelli said the system the Liberals inherited in 2003 required investment, but relief programs have provided some assistance to low income families and seniors. Denley said hydro bills will rise 42 per cent over the next five years. “That’s a huge blow to seniors in our riding,” Den-

ley said. “What I am hearing at the doors is that they just can’t afford it.” Hill said energy conservation is the key. He said the other parties are competing for votes by promising to make energy cheaper. Cullen said NDP will remove HST from energy bills and get rid of the debt retirement charge.

Good things come in threes: Katrice Sutherland ksutherland@metroland.com

News- Stéphanie Legault stands at her stove, mouthing the names of ingredients as she puts together dinner for the tiny audience of three seated in high chairs behind her. Her enthusiasm for cooking and trying all types of food, passed down from her father, is just one of the passions she hopes to instill in her triplets as they grow. Stéphanie and her husband of nine years, Michael, are the proud parents of three girls: Amélie and Madeline, whom are identical, and their fraternal sister Rosalie. They were born prematurely on Nov 20, 2012. “They’re 18 months old and a handful,” said Stéphanie, a Barrhaven resident. After seven years of unsuccessfully trying to conceive naturally, the family sought alternative options and endured five cycles of in vitro fertilization. They were only expecting one child but the couple got a little more than they bargained for. Now, be-

ing parents of triplets, they have had to face every normal parental obstacle three-fold. As members of the Multiple Birth Families Associations, the Legault family has found comfort and support in the group’s resources while learning to juggle their new life. The Ottawa association is one of the largest multiple birth support groups in the country with over 400 members. Stéphanie said the association’s website suggests informative books and websites to visit that helped her prepare while she was pregnant. The organization offers a number of outlets and activities for families with multiples including the Twice as Nice consignment sales, prenatal classes, parenting tips, support groups and links to educational services. Stéphanie takes full advantage of the association’s sale each spring since the girls were born. Stéphanie thinks it is important to raise awareness about the struggles some families face when raising multiples.

“My sister-in-law had twins eight months before ours were born. I think things were a lot harder than they let on,” she said. Her best advice for new parents with multiples: accept help from people when it’s offered and ask for help when you need it. “If I had been more aware of how difficult it is to have multiples, I would have been more insistent on offering help,” said Stéphanie of her sister-in-law’s births. She was grateful to have family and friends offer hand-me-downs, home cooking and help during feeding time so she could rest and be the best mom possible for her little ones. The association hosted a family get together at Brewer Park to celebrate National Multiple Births Awareness Day between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on June 1. This also marks the birth of the Dionne quintuplets– Canada’s first set of quintuplets to survive beyond infancy. They were born on May 28, 1934. People who are looking to get involved can connect with the group at mbfa.ca.

Celebrating National Multiple Birth Awareness Day:

SUBMITTED / STEPHANIE LEGAULT

The Legault family celebrates Madeline, Rosalie and Amélie’s first birthday, three days after the triplet’s traditional Catholic baptism on Nov 17, 2013.

(NC)—Do summer cookouts leave a bad taste in your mouth? Unbeknownst to many grilling enthusiasts, the food racks need to be sanitized after every use and the entire grill needs to be cleaned at least once a year. Charcoal, oils, and hardened burnt scraps on the grates and basin, can cause fresh food to stick to the rack and adhere to your newest grilled cuisine. This, of course, can leave a distasteful flavour on your otherwise mouth-watering meal. Take a look at a few simple steps from the Reliable Corporation, to make sure your gas grill is sparkling clean and barbecue ready, without the use of chemicals:

Three cheers for Dad

STAY SAFE THIS SUMMER It’s official – summer is in full swing. And while some might assume that the return of warm weather simply means more barbecues, bike rides, and beaches, it’s important to remember the safety precautions that go along with all those fun summer activities.

HOME ALONE The Child and Family Services Act does not identify an age when a child can be left alone, or an age at which a child can supervise or babysit other children. The Act recognizes that age alone is not a sufficient safeguard for the supervision of children. A person who has charge of a child less than 16 years of age cannot leave the child without making provision for his/her care or supervision that is reasonable under the circumstances.

WATER SAFETY

Flipping out Joey Albert, a professional acrobat from Timmins, Ont., impresses audience members in the ByWard Market on June 1, flipping over six young volunteers.

Continuing east-west bikeway city a priority Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city is touting $70 million it intends to sink into 79 cycling projects over the next 15 years. Councillors received an update on bicycle projects and policies during a transportation committee meeting on June 4. The financial commitment for the next 15 years is $70 million, or around $4.6 million a year. That’s a reduction from the annual investment in cycling made over this term of council, which has seen the city invest $28 million since the 2010 election, although city staff said another $40 million is intended to be “available” for major cycling projects. The $70 million represents the cycling projects outlined in the “affordability plan” as part of the city’s transportation master plan update last fall. It includes 40 cycling facility projects to be completed in the first phase before 2019 and 39 projects in the decade after. The plan includes three major projects – pedestrian and cycling bridges at the old Prince of Wales rail bridge over the Ottawa River, a Donald-Somerset connection and a bridge near Lansdowne at Fifth Avenue and Clegg. The east-west bikeway – an extension of the Laurier Avenue segregated bike lane – is the major project in the city’s core. It will connect Westboro through downtown to Vanier, though the entire route won’t be segregated with collapsible poles, like the Laurier section. The portions east of Elgin Street in Sandy Hill, Lowertown and Vanier are to be completed this year. A “missing link” from

Laurier to Albert Street is also priority. After the light-rail system comes online in 2018, there are cycle tracks planned for Albert Street, which currently forms the westbound portion of the bus Transitway. Another downtown project in the works is an extension of O-Train pathway that opened in 2013. The new section would extend from Young Street to Carling Avenue, with a signalized crossing at Carling. In the Glebe, a series of cycling-lane projects are underway with a view to easing access to Lansdowne Park when it re-opens sporting events in July. Holmwood, Glebe, First and Fifth avenues will form the eastwest access. Further east, a bike lane is being added to Sussex Drive between St. Patrick Street in Lowertown and the existing lanes that start at the Rideau River. The city’s cycling initiatives also include adding bike parking, include 150 new ringand-post sites and a new pilot project to add on-street bike parking “corrals” in two vehicle parking spaces in Wellington West and one in the Glebe. O’CONNOR BIKEWAY

The major southbound corridor will be Percy Street between Wellington Street in Centretown and Glebe Avenue. A public workshop to work out the details for that route will be held Monday, June 23 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Festival board room at city hall. Registration is required. Email oconnorbikeway@ottawa.ca to sign up.

Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said the intent is making the route bidirectional, whether that means having both north- and southbound lanes on O’Connor, which is a one-way southbound street, or by having northbound cyclists use Metcalfe Street. “It’s hugely important,” he said. Having a dedicated bike route that’s safer – whether it’s delineated with a painted line, segregated with posts or separated from traffic as a raised cycle track – would encourage people to use their bikes to get downtown and to Lansdowne, Chernushenko said. Bank Street was designed with wider sidewalks and no bike lanes when it was rebuilt three years ago and north-south cycle lanes on further west on Lyon and Percy streets aren’t continuous, he said. CURRENT SUBURBAN CYCLING PROJECTS:

• Renaud Road • Strandherd Drive and Strandherd Bridge • Chapman Mills Drive • Southern section of Bank Street • Founders Avenue (new road)

CAR SAFETY Did you know that your car’s interior temperature can reach as high as 93 degrees Celsius in as little as 10 minutes? It comes as no surprise, then, that you should never leave a child – or pet – in your car, even with the windows partly rolled down. Children are especially at risk for heat exhaustion and heat stroke because their bodies cannot regulate temperature as well as an adult’s. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the safety of a child, please contact the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa immediately.

There is nothing quite as refreshing as a dip in the pool – or lake – on a scorching hot day. However, there are heightened safety precautions to take when it comes to children around any body of water. Always keep children within arms’ reach, in and around the water. Make sure they wear lifejackets or person flotation devices in and around the water. Most importantly, never leave a child alone, whether it’s in a swimming pool, lake, river, or bathtub. Speaking of tubs, children under the age of five should never use a hot tub – not even with an adult. Hot tubs are far too hot for young children, may contain large amounts of bacteria, and the drain in the hot tub can be a hazard to small kids.

Last week, Mayor Jim Watson, City Manager Kent Kirkpatrick, Deputy City Manager Steve Kanellakos and I met with and received an update from Yves Desjardins-Siciliano, President and Chief Executive Officer of VIA Rail Canada, and John Marginson who was appointed by Via Rail to act as a Senior Advisor, dedicated to managing the Barrhaven and Ottawa area file until the railway crossing issues are resolved. Stationed in the Ottawa-area, Mr. Marginson will report directly to Mr. Desjardins-Siciliano. At that meeting, we were informed that there has been 131 corrective actions identified by VIA Rail during their review of the Barrhaven rail crossings, 87 of which have been completed by VIA Rail and RailTerm, who is VIA’s maintenance contractor on the tracks. The next month will be very busy for work as 30 more corrective actions are being completed in this month alone. Therefore, there will be a lot of activity along the tracks leading to noise, some of which will be at night. When the City is notified of when work will take place, I will do my best to alert the community so everyone is aware of why workers are present along the tracks, so please connect with me over social media. All of my social media contact information can be found on my website at the address below. In addition to work along the tracks, VIA Rail is doing field surveys and preliminary design for the installation of the siding track that will be east of Woodroffe, closer to Merivale. The construction of this new siding track between the Ottawa and Fallowfield stations will reduce false activations due to train traffic congestion. VIA Rail will notify the City when the equipment for the siding track has arrived and when construction will begin. Once again, I will notify the community to inform everyone when this work is to take place. At the end of June and in early July, cameras will be installed and will operate 24 hours a day at the Woodroffe and Fallowfield crossings. Three other cameras will also be installed at the Greenbank, Jockvale, and Strandherd railway crossings in Barrhaven by the end of September. These cameras will help to facilitate faster response by maintenance crews. VIA Rail also informed us that they received no big surprises in their investigations of the issues at the Barrhaven rail crossings but they are looking at a few challenging design issues. For example, the signalling control box located west of the transitway and the Woodroffe crossing that controls the crossing protection, is in a bad location as ground vibrations in this area are causing additional failsafe mode activations. Therefore, they are relocating the box east of Woodroffe to eliminate the vibrations. Together, VIA Rail and the City of Ottawa, are also conducting a detailed safety assessment to identify risks and ultimately to decide whether to implement further changes. The last detailed safety assessment was conducted in 2010, with the next one scheduled to be conducted in 2015, however, it is being advanced by a year to be conducted now. Overall, I am happy with the work that has been done by the City of Ottawa and the recent work completed by VIA Rail. Instead of looming questions, answers are being given and everyone is finding that communication has greatly improved. This communication allows me, and the City, to provide information to the community. As always, I will do my best to keep everyone in the community up-to-date and informed on VIA Rail. You can also find up to date information about Barrhaven-area rail crossings on VIA Rail’s webpage, under the title “Information for Ottawa area residents”. On this webpage you can also submit questions directly to VIA Rail in which they will respond to you via email. 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. 46

Foot Guards Soloist Performs at City Council To continue in our recognition of the Governor General’s Foot Guards and their contributions to our city, I had the pleasure to welcome their soloist, Master Corporal Tammy Shaw to perform the National Anthem at City Council recently.

Switching churches a serious topic for Audrey

B

eing Lutheran is no fun,â&#x20AC;? Audrey said for the umpteenth time that morning. Mother let out a loud sigh, and I knew what was coming next, because my sister on the rare occasions she even bothered to discuss with me anything the least bit serious, had talked about this very thing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we have more Sunday picnics like the Uniteds? Beatrice said there are at least two more picnics this summer, and we Lutherans have yet to have even one.â&#x20AC;? Audrey was wiping the oilcloth on the kitchen table, and she was rubbing so hard I thought she was going to rub out the checked red and white pattern. Then she took the argument even further by suggesting she saw no reason why she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the United Church and the rest of the family stay Lutheran. Well, that tore it. Mother sat Audrey down at one end of the table, just by pointing her finger to the nearest chair, and she sat at the other end. There was nothing I liked better than a good heated

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories discussion, and I knew I was about to witness a dandy. Nothing bothered Mother more than to have one of us argue about going to church. Even though we came from what Aunt Lizzie called a divided household, to Mother going to the Lutheran church every Sunday was just as important as doing the washing on Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and having our weekly bath on Saturday night. There were no questions asked as far as going to church was concerned, and only a calamity of the highest order would keep us away. Mother told Audrey you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to church to have fun. You were there to learn about the bible, and listen to a good message. I thought it was a good time to bring up the subject of our divided household, since we were talking church and all. I had no idea what it meant

when Aunt Lizzie had come from Regina one time and as well as declaring Mother as â&#x20AC;&#x153;not being of the best farm material she had ever seen,â&#x20AC;? she also said Mother created what was called a divided household for her brother â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my father. So I dared to ask, what was a divided household? Mother ignored my question, but my sister Audrey jumped right in and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means Father is a Lutheran, and Mother is a Catholic.â&#x20AC;? Well, that was all news to me. The nearest Catholic church was in Renfrew and not once did we ever go to a church service in the Catholic church in Renfrew. How could Mother be a Catholic and not go to church every Sunday? Now, she did have a rosary, and she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat meat on Fridays, and on occasion I did see her cross herself, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

as far as it went. Why, we often sang on the street corner with the Salvation Army band in Renfrew â&#x20AC;&#x201C; did that make us Salvation Army members? Anyway, as far as Mother was concerned the discussion was over, and Audrey and I headed for the swing in the grape arbour. I told Audrey I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go to one church and have her go to another. I told her about the time she was asked to sing a hymn and how I tingled from my head to my toes with pride, and how everyone said she sang like a bird, and I just knew she would be asked to sing again someday. Whose shoulder could I lean against when I nodded off during the sermon? Certainly not my brother Emersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell by looking at Audrey, sitting across from me in the swing, if I had been able to convince her to stay a Lutheran. I had to think of something that would leave no doubt in her mind that going to the United Church just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a good idea. Then it hit me right out of the blue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hear Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother from the Barr Line is going to join the Lutheran Church.

Remember how he chose your cake at the cake auction at our church? Cost him a whole quarter too. He sure had the sweets on you.â&#x20AC;? I had no idea in the world whether or not Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother had any intention of joining the Lutheran church, but this issue called for drastic measures, and if that meant telling a little white lie, so be it. Audrey got a dreamy look in her eyes, which was a very good sign. I thought I would seal the deal by adding a bit more to the story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shirley said he is now old enough to drive the car too. He loves to go into Renfrew to the picture shows.â&#x20AC;? I had my fingers

crossed behind my back, which was supposed to get rid of the sin of telling a lie. I sure hoped it worked, because I had no idea if Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family even owned a car â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they came to church in a horse and buggy. Well, that did the trick. Audrey put her head back in the swing, and pushed the boards gently with her feet, and the swing squeaked back and forth in a steady rhythm. I knew she was thinking of trips into Renfrew to the picture show, and Shirleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother sitting in a pew in the Lutheran Church. Joining the United Church was never mentioned again.

Poutine basks in new flavours when done on the grill Lifestyle - Now this is truly Canadian comfort food done on the barbecue. Jazz it up even more with sprinkled cooked bacon, crumbled cooked sausage, hot jalapeño peppers or caramelized onion or create a poutine bar and serve small bowls of each topping. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 10 minutes. Grilling time: 10 minutes. Serves four to six. INGREDIENTS

• 5 unpeeled white potatoes, each cut into eight wedges (about 2 cm/3/4-inch) thick • 1 can (284 mL) beef gravy • 25 ml (2 tbsp) red wine (optional) • 1 sprig fresh rosemary • 10 ml (2 tsp) Worcestershire sauce • 15 ml (1 tbsp) olive oil • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt • Black pepper • 375 ml (1-1/2 cups) cheese curds (about 200 g) • 1 green onion, thinly sliced PREPARATION

In a large pot of lightly

salted water, cover and bring potatoes to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until they’re just barely fork-tender, about five minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the gravy, wine (if you’re using it), rosemary and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for two minutes to blend the flavours. Remove the pan from the heat, discard the rosemary and keep warm. Drain the potatoes and pat them dry. In a medium bowl, stir together the potatoes and oil, and add salt and pepper to taste. Place potatoes on a greased rectangular grill topper or in flat grill basket in single layer. Place on a covered grill

over medium-high heat for six to nine minutes or until the potatoes are tender and golden brown, turning occasionally. Place the potatoes in a 20centimetre (eight-inch) round or square disposable foil container. Reduce the heat to low. Sprinkle the potatoes with cheese curds and return them to the grill to cook, covered, until the cheese is slightly melted -about three minutes. Serve on individual plates and drizzle each with 25 to 45 mL of gravy or serve in a container drizzled with most of the gravy, leaving some for those who like lots. Sprinkle with green onion.

Fund brings farm fresh food to Ontario schools

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Baby Billy City hall staffers Justine Paulin, left, and Alison Lynch, right, meet a week-old goat during the Mayor’s Rural Expo and Food Aid fundraiser. In addition to a barbecue to raise funds for the Ottawa Food Bank, the event features and displays for many businesses, festivals and artisans from Ottawa’s rural communities.

PET OF THE WEEK

(NC)—This past winter, schools across Ontario were invited to participate in a challenge. The assignment: to increase local food purchases and educate students about the benefits of eating locally grown food through an initiative called the Ontario Farm to School Challenge. Foodshare, with a grant from the Greenbelt Fund helped create the program, which received over 200 school submissions and brought thousands of pounds of local Ontario fruits and vegetables to schools. Foodshare is a non-profit agency working to improve access to affordable and healthy food from field to table. The Greenbelt Fund is a program aimed at increasing local food at broader public sector institutions. The first round winner, Waterford District High School, provided Grade 9 and 10 hospitality students with local products from Elgin and Norfolk counties to create recipes for their year-end projects. Participating schools were assisted in sourcing their local food products through Ontariofresh.ca. The business-to-business site is a place where buyers and sellers of local food can profile their needs and availabilities. It is like LinkedIn, but for local food businesses. Best of all — it’s free. The Greenbelt Fund’s grant program is aimed at increasing local food at broad public sector institutions, including schools. FoodShare will be hosting a final round of the Ontario Farm to School Challenge in October. Watch Ontariofresh.ca for updates.

Pet Adoptions Meet Betsy, an affectionate and active German shepherd/boxer mix looking for her forever home. Betsy would love to live with a family that enjoys exercise as much as she does! Betsy’s favourite game is playing fetch – she will be wellmatched in a home with older or dog-savvy kids who can throw around the ball with her, take her on walks and enjoy her playful personality! Betsy is a very social gal and likes the company of other dogs but would do best with other four-legged friends who will respect her space. She would benefit from an experienced owner who can help her be the best pooch possible with obedience training. For more information on Petra 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.

Hi, my name is Shasta and I’m a 4 year old Maltese. I love to help Gramma tend to the garden and explore the back yard! I love to play tag with my cat cousins Cosmo and Nikita! I love to hang out with my canine cousin Toby! I really love going to visit GG (Gramma Gisele) where I kiss and cuddle her and ride on her walker! But when the day is done, I love to settle down with my Mom & Dad and dream about tomorrows adventures!!!

part of their owner’s summer plans. Along with challenge of so many animals needing care in the OHS shelter, far too many dogs are rescued from hot cars. Even before temperatures climb into the 30s, temperatures inside parked cars, even on moderate days, can soar to 40 degrees and beyond. As many as two dozen dogs every week will need to be rescued from these vehicular ovens this summer. Summer also becomes lively in a good way. A favourite addition is the very popular summer camps that begin at the end of the school year. Almost

400 children attended OHS camps last summer. Not only do they bring life to the OHS, but they leave with knowledge and attitudes that will change the future for Ottawa’s animals. In addition to young summer campers, the OHS also reached 2,444 through other camps, children’s tours and birthday parties and an astounding 6,900 through school and summer humane education programs. Their learning experiences will result in permanent change. They won’t leave their pets in hot cars, and they won’t surrender their pet to go on holidays.

Now that summer has finally arrived, things will be getting very lively here at the Ottawa Humane Society. Both great things and tremendous challenges are a part of the season. As soon as the weather gets warm, the shelter begins to fill with stray animals and those surrendered by their owners. In fact, OHS intake rises from a dozen or so a day, to up to 50 animals some days, all of whom have nowhere else to go. It is a sad fact that as summer holiday time approaches in June, the number of animals surrendered peaks, often as a result of pets not being a

Curb appeal puts home in demand (NC)—In a market where sellers are in competition to make the most out of their largest investment, improving your home’s first impression is one of the best ways to set it apart from the rest of the pack. When prospective buyers or renters drive through your neighbourhood, what do they see? This is a really important question that you need to answer because it will help understand what your buyer is going to be looking for in a new home. Once you’ve answered this, ask yourself objectively if the front of your home is in keeping with the rest of the houses on your block. The first impression is critical in setting the mood for prospective agents and buyers. If your home’s exterior looks like it needs work, then people immediately assume that it’s a ‘fixer-upper’. The opposite is true if your front yard is manicured, the roof is in good shape and the driveway is in good condition. Having a potential buyer walk into your front door in a positive mode can translate into big dollars for you.

Both Virginia Tech and the University of Guelph did studies in 2011 that measured the effect of landscaping on property values, and they both came to the same conclusion. To improve curb appeal, basic landscaping increased the home’s value by 5%, but more extensive landscaping including decks and patios increased the homes value up to 15%. So where do you spend the money? Set your budget and be realistic about what you’re trying to accomplish with it. Keep in mind that you are trying to create an excellent first impression to attract potential buyers. This isn’t the opportunity for you to realize your landscaping dreams. Consider a new paint job using a colour scheme that highlights the character of your home. Install a new front door or at least update your door’s hardware. Even something as simple as full and healthy planters can make a favourable impact. One of the easiest ways to improve curb appeal is to have a clean and tidy front yard with a manicured lawn.

Maybe this is the opportunity to invest in some new tools to help do the job properly. The best part about this type of investment is that not only will your plants and lawn look better with edging, pruning and cutting, you also get to take your new tools with you once you’ve sold your home. The technology for landscaping tools has made the purchasing task much easier as well. Now you can get a hedge trimmer, string trimmer or sweeper & vac all in one system. With the Black & Decker 36V Lithium system, for example, you can use the same battery and charger for all three of those tools. A quick prune of the shrubs with the hedge trimmer, followed by a ‘one-around’ with the string trimmer and then tidying up with the sweeper will help you to maintain the front yard as short as 10 minutes per day. The goal is to create an emotional connection at the first glance of any prospective buyer, so before you put that sign on the lawn, be sure to spend enough time at the curb.

At the meeting, City Staff will provide information on the process and objectives and identify preliminary design issues to be addressed by the study. You will have the opportunity to meet and discuss your comments with the study team. The City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP 2013) identifies the Western Light Rail Transit Corridor Extension as a component of the future expanded rapid transit network, integral to achieving modal share targets for public transportation. Study Area The Study Area extends between the existing Transitway (from a junction south of Lincoln Fields Station) and Bayshore Station, along Highway 417. The Environmental Assessment portion of the study will be undertaken in accordance with the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects. The final Environmental Project Report will be integrated with that of the Western Light Rail Transit Corridor (Bayview to Baseline) Planning and Environmental Assessment Study.

New Sawmill Creek pathway extension to open soon $2.5-million paved path touted as fully accessible cycling and pedestrian route Erin McCracken erin.mccracken@metroland.com

News - A new $2.5-million pedestrian and cycling pathway along Sawmill Creek is expected to open by the end of June, which will allow more commuters to get out of their cars and on their bikes, said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s River Ward councillor. The 1.2-kilometre northsouth stretch extends north along the Airport Parkway from the path to the Walkley Road transitway station and links with the existing Brookfield Road pathway, just west of the pedestrian bridge over the creek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine how cool itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be to be a cyclist hopping on that pathway, knowing you can safely navigate that very busy corridor and not have to be in the middle of traffic,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Maria McCrae, one of the driving forces behind the pathway extension. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an alternate form of transportation that gets cars off the road. And when you hear people complaining

about congestion, certainly anything we can do to get cars off the road is important.â&#x20AC;? Money for the extension was secured in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 budget, and construction got underway late last summer following a public consultation process. The three-metre-wide strip is now fully paved, retaining walls have been constructed in places where the grade along the creek is steep, and several trees have been planted along the off-road corridor. Final steps include some landscaping and an inspection before the city can officially take over the infrastructure, said McCrae, who has, in her excitement, regularly tweeted the progress thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been made on the pathway. The pathway extension also been built with the future in mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questioning whether that pathway was built to allow for future expansion of the Airport Parkway, absolutely,â&#x20AC;? McCrae said, noting an environmental assessment on the parkwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expansion is slated to begin

A worker recently rolls out strips of grass sod along the edges of the newly extended Sawmill Creek pathway. The 1.2-kilometre multi-use corridor, that has since been paved, is expected to open by the end of June. soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So there will be no redigging it up or anything.â&#x20AC;? The path will also translate into an economic boost in the surrounding neighbourhood

and in the greater region because it will not only draw tourists, but also residents who may be considering moving to the community,

said McCrae. She pointed to Washington D.C. and Portland, Ore. as examples of cities that have experienced increased economic development thanks to their extensive pedestrian and cycling networks. The creation of the Sawmill Creek recreational-use pathway was first envisioned by McCrae about a decade ago when she first took office. Work on the Sawmill Creek Constructed Wetlands had begun, and she said she saw potential for the development of pathways in the area. But McCrae was told by city staff these were earmarked for trucks accessing storm-water ponds, and that there were no plans for recreational use in the area. McCrae then pushed for paths between Walkley and Hunt Club roads to be groomed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But as soon as you got to Walkley, you had no where to go, so if you had a stroller or a walker or a wheelchair you were sort of stuck on the pathway,â&#x20AC;? McCrae said. Once Nancy Schepers took

up the post as deputy city manager of planning and infrastructure, the two worked together to make the Sawmill Creek pathway extension a reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We agreed that having that safe, very important north-south corridor was a priority in our transportation network,â&#x20AC;? McCrae said. Credit for the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful completion also goes to city engineer Carina Duclos and project manager Tara Blasioli, who ensured the multi-use corridor was finished on time and on budget, McCrae said. The path was designed to help link commuters working downtown and living south of the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, you can put your bike on the O-Train, hop off at Confederation (Heights), which is very close to Brookfield (Road), get on that pathway and cycle all the way up to Hunt Club Road, which is a tremendous opportunity to get cars off the road and get a little bit of fitness in at the same time,â&#x20AC;? McCrae said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a happy councillor.â&#x20AC;?
