EMC news – Barrhaven public school parents threatened a mass exodus to the Catholic board on June 14 if the overflow at Longfields Davidson Heights Secondary School (LDHSS) forces their kids to go to Merivale or South Carleton high schools. The parents – headed by LDHSS parent council cochairs Taz Mawji and Lauralee Comeau – spoke to the board’s business services committee. Donna Blackburn, the trustee for Barrhaven, said putting students at the two high schools was plan B. “Staff was looking at it as an alternative if we don’t get the funding from the province for the expansion,” she said.

honour last year for the work The Drowsy Chaperone. Students received honours in five categories – the most of any school nominated. Danielle Denisko won for female dancer; she also won for choreography, along with Chloe Gill. The school also received accolades in the new category of marketing and publicity. Jaelen Truong, Victoria Beales, Ruby Pascoe, Jenna Perclick and Evan Grice were the recipients. Cynthia Wood, the school’s drama teacher, said the students created a 12-episode, behindthe-scenes look at the production accessible on YouTube. The series was dubbed dubbed Fame Diaries. Natasha Jarrett got the nod for sup-

porting actress. Fame is about talented and diverse high school students struggling with various dilemmas while juggling a rigorous arts training program. Wood said the students’ flexibility and the support of other teachers and parents made the show a success. Gill, a Grade 12 student, joined the show at the last minute as a dancer to take place of another student who had a dance competition. “It was alright, I knew the steps,” she said, adding she has been dancing since she was three years old and wanted to try her hand at being the one to come up with the dances.

“Ultimately no one wants to see the kids shipped out of their community.â€? The LDHSS’s expansion has been placed ďŹ fth on the board’s capital priorities list, but there is still no guaranteed funding from the province. Mawji said she understands the need for alternatives, but feels the community should have been contacted for their ideas on an interim solution.

In October there were 800. South Carleton’s student body reached 1,239 in October and the school can hold 1,344.

sponsor. Other businesses in Barrhaven have donated and organizers put together a comedy night at the Barrhaven Legion on June 16 to raise money for the celebrations. “It takes a lot of work to put this together,” Bartraw said. Local bands have been battling it out since the beginning of May to have the honour of

playing the main stage. The winning band was to be decided on June 20 at Greenfield’s Pub. Bartraw said the organizing committee has 16 volunteers, with more than 50 others working to make the day goes off without a hitch. Anyone interested in helping should visit www.canadadaybarrhaven.ca.

EMC news - Bugs are the feature attraction at the St. Lawrence Islands National Park this summer as the park highlights the rich biodiversity of some of the little creatures that play important roles in supporting vibrant ecosystems. The exhibit, Nature’s Winners, on loan from the Montreal Insectarium, explores the close relationship insects have with the environment. With something for all ages, this exhibit presents the many shapes, colours and adaptations of the beautiful and often hidden world of insects. Visitors have an opportunity to discover the ingenuity, originality, strength and fragility of many species from both water and land as they interact with live animals such as scorpions, beetles, and a tarantula. A number of native species in the collection help introduce visitors to the wonderful creatures found within the Thousand Islands region. Old favourites have also returned to the park’s visitor centre this season. Exhibits featuring the gray ratsnake and a stinkpot turtle,

both designated as a species at risk, enable visitors to get up close with rare animals found within St. Lawrence Islands National Park. Interact with knowledgeable and friendly park staff and learn how you can take some simple steps to help protect these fascinating creatures. The park visitor centre is also a great resource stop for visitors seeking information on a broad range of activities occurring within the park all summer long. Featured activities include a learn to geocache program where participants hunt for “treasure” with GPS units and the Parks Canada Xplorer program, where children explore the park with an activity book to help guide their visit. Located at 1121-1000 Islands Parkway, just west of Country Road 5 (exit 675 off Highway 401), the St. Lawrence Islands National Park visitor centre is open Thursday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Labour Day.

Fitzgerald resigns from public school board Trustee says she will ‘go dancing’ Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news – A public school board trustee Pam Fitzgerald announced her resignation on June 14, citing poor health and political divisions in the board as reasons for leaving her post. The 58-year-old, who covers the area that corresponds with the municipal College ward, was diagnosed with colon cancer in December. Fitzgerald there’s a lot going on at the school board, with pressure from the province to amalgamate the boards and upcoming negotiations with teachers and staff this fall. “There’s a lot of pressure on the board. The negotiations in the fall could lead to labour action,” she said. “I thought it best to leave now because of my health. That way there’s time for someone else to get up to speed.” Fitzgerald also said she finds the “political horse trading” at the board level tiresome. “You’re going to have that in any political arena to some extent,” she said. “But there really should be more concern for the kids.” Donna Blackburn, trustee

for Barrhaven and Knoxdale/ Merivale, was involved in some politics when NepeanCarleton MPP Lisa MacLeod and Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder threatened to force her to resign over her decision to fund a rebuild of Broadview Public School, but Blackburn said she has put the issue behind her. “I have moved on and we have work to do as a board,” Blackburn said. “The board is doing well; we passed the budget and hired the staff we needed. Yes, there are glitches from time to time, but the board works well.” MacLeod said she wanted to thank Fitzgerald for her service and wished her well in her recovery. She added that the chair has a big role to play in bringing the board of trustees together. “There are trustees I keep close counsel with who have made an effort to reach out and I think that’s important moving forward,” MacLeod said. Fitzgerald has been in her post since 2006 and took a run at provincial politics as a NDP candidate for the riding of Ottawa West-Nepean during the March 2010 by election to replace Jim Watson as MPP.

Orleans-Cumberland trustee John Shea said he has seen Fitzgerald work almost every night for the last six years. “I have respect for the decision she made to step down,” he said. “I hope she comes to a place where she isn’t being fueled by division.” During her tenure as trustee, Fitzgerald said she was most proud of her work with a program at the PinecrestQueensway Community

Health Centre called Pathways to Education that helps to mentor and tutor children coming from low-income families to make sure they stay in school and graduate. She was also instrumental in implementing a reading program for children with dyslexia and learning disabilities. “We ended up going with a model used at Sick Kids in Toronto and it was instru-

mental in kids’ development and ensuring they learned to read,” she said. Over the years, Fitzgerald said she has made some great friendships and said it was fulfilling to see some of the great work happening in local schools. “It was an honour,” she said. - with files from Brier Dodge

Pam Fitzgerald announced her resignation from the public school board on June 14. Fitzgerald said she doesn’t have any political aspirations for her future and plans to focus on her health and personal life. “I woke up this morning and thought ‘This will be the first time since my son was born that I will have my evenings free,’” she said. “I want to go dancing.” Fitzgerald said after some 20 years of being an advocate and trustee, she is planning on taking advantage of a more normal schedule.

Public education ‘increasingly two-tier’: critics The third and final installment in a series that looks at school fundraising By Kristen Calis, Jessica Cunha and Rosie-Ann Grover

T

he best way to end the Ontario school system’s reliance on fundraising is to pour more money into public education, parents, teachers and critics say. “We are getting increasingly (to be) a two-tiered education system,” says NDP education critic Peter Tabuns. “That speaks to the need for adequate funding of the education system so parents don’t feel compelled to raise money.” Fundraising Fever, a Metroland Special Report, shows that concerns about overuse of fundraising – and the disparities it creates – are growing province-wide. Potential solutions also include a proposal by the advocacy group People for Education, which wants a provincial Equity in Education grant created to reduce inequities triggered by fundraising. School boards are pushing for an evaluation of provincial education funding to determine whether the current model is fair to all students. “The pressure to fundraise will only grow as boards try to meet the austerity measures of provincial governments,” says Catherine Fife, president of the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association. “We can’t go to our parent councils or school councils and keep asking for money.” There’s no question money is tight. The McGuinty government is starting consultations this fall to cut $10 million from school board administration budgets by 2013-14. Progressive Conservative education critic Lisa MacLeod says there is a lot of waste in the system and boards don’t always spend their funding appropriately. “They’ll claim they have no money, but are they managing the money effectively?” she asks. Some groups, including Social Planning Toronto, believe fundraising should be banned outright, except for raising dollars for external charities. “I’d rather not have it,” says Chris Ellis, who sits on four school councils in Ottawa. “I’d like for schools to not be able to raise funds for their own use so then parents in those affluent areas might become involved and speak up for greater funding for the education system.” The Coalition Against Public School Inequality suggests a cap on school fundraising. A percentage of each school’s profits above and beyond the limit would go into an equalization fund to help disadvantaged schools. But the Ontario Federation of Home and School Associations says a limit would be too restrictive. “We actually don’t want somebody to say you have to stop here. It’s up to the parents to decide how much they want to do or whether

they’ve had enough,” says Lee Gowers, president of the group. Raising property taxes would be a controversial solution, but “that’s how you address inequity, unpopularly, through taxes,” says Annie Kidder, executive director of People for Education. “At some point, we have to bite the bullet and go, ‘That’s what taxes pay for.’ If we want our kids to have books in their libraries, we have to pay taxes.” Critics say the province should outline exactly what materials, activities and programs should be available – at no cost to parents – in all Ontario schools. Currently, it’s OK to raise funds for library books, gym equipment and musical instruments. “You need to start with the policy and the vision and laying out concretely what should be there in schools,” says Kidder. “Then you start talking about how you fund it to ensure it’s fair and equitable.” There is also interest in a boardwide mentorship program where successful fundraising schools partner with those that need a hand, helping to reduce the gap in funds raised. “To me, that’s how successful fundraising can be done, really sharing the best practices,” says parent Roxanne Horwitz, who sits on the St. Bernadette Catholic School council in Ajax Education foundations across the province continue to play a role, helping to reduce inequities in opportunity between well-off and disadvantaged schools. There is no severe pressure on schools to raise funds for things like field trips because many foundations will cover those costs. “Having a central education foundation completely changes the landscape for children in a city,” says Jane Fulton, executive director of the Education Foundation of Ottawa. “We make sure that no student is left out.” Small businesses and large corporations continue to work to bridge the gap by providing donations and incentive programs. “That’s what we are counting on, businesses in the community,” says Luce Paradis, principal at Assumption Catholic School in Ottawa. The school is located in a low-income area and doesn’t usually host fundraisers. Without corporate donations, it wouldn’t be able to reach its goal of $50,000 for a new play structure. “We have to outsource a little bit.” The Campbell’s Labels For Education program, for example, invites schools to collect labels from Campbell’s products, such as soup cans and Goldfish crackers, and redeem them for educational resources from books to gym equipment. A number of other companies, such as Chapters, Boston Pizza and McDonald’s, host special events that encourage parents to purchase their products and then give a portion of sales back to local schools. Others, such as the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario, believe businesses don’t belong in public schools. “It’s a tempting road because it’s a quick fix to the funding situation,” says Kawartha Pine Ridge ETFO president David Wing. “Children are already bombarded enough with commercial messages.”

Please join us as we celebrate the successes 

  

There is a stigma associated with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease that often prevents open discussion of the symptoms, but people like John Wilson are doing what they can to help change that. Wilson, and inhabitant of Renfrew, has dealt extensively with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. Seven years ago, his father was diagnosed with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease, and now, his mother has early onset symptoms of the disease. While people sometimes become forgetful as they age, in his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, the symptoms were clear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was always forgetting names, which was normal,â&#x20AC;? say Wilson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but forgetting things, like something he was supposed to pick up. And there were some driving issues, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be somewhere with my mom and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go home without her.â&#x20AC;? Wilson and his family confronted the situation by seeking out help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew to get in touch with our doctor to get a referral for a gerontologist. We went through that waiting and talking with a couple

of different doctors just to try to get an actual diagnosis and ďŹ nd out if there was anything that could be done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From there on, ďŹ nding out what we can about Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease through the Alzheimer Society.â&#x20AC;? Wilson credits the Alzheimer Society for providing information on the disease, available services, and what to expect. Wilson and his sister attended various seminars offered by the Alzheimer Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ofďŹ ces in Pembroke, Arnprior, and Ottawa. Wilson has since become involved with the Alzheimer Society. He was the second place winner in its Walk for Memories fundraising campaign for the last two years, and has arranged for speakers to address his community in order to spread awareness of the dementia services available in Ottawa and Renfrew County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess the big thing is for people to realize that there is support and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go through it alone,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quite often, there are often only two family members or less

to deal with the load, and you end up with caregiver burnout.â&#x20AC;? Wilson has the following advice for those who are concerned about a family member experiencing memory loss: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seek help as soon as you can. If the diagnosis is Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease, there are medications that are available that can slow symptoms. And being involved with the Alzheimer Society makes you aware of what is available and what you can do.â&#x20AC;?

East-end bridge is not just about us

N

ow is not the time for the city to turn its back on the development of an east-end bridge between Ottawa and Gatineau. Perhaps when the idea was first floated decades ago, it could have been rubbished as some sort of whimsical pipe dream. But now, when the population of the OttawaGatineau region is only a hair below 1.25 million, is not the time to balk at such a move. It is important to remem-

ber the stated purpose of building a new bridge is not narrow. It is conceived as, among other things, a way to improve the lives of those who regularly cross the Ottawa River by improving transportation links, take heavy vehicle traffic out of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown core and to boost economic development in the National Capital Region. The position taken by members of several east end communities, and surpris-

ingly by Mayor Jim Watson, that we should not consider an east-end interprovincial link at all simply fails to address the needs of this region. Will the lives of those crossing the river be improved by extending Ottawa light rail further east? Will, by the same token, trucks be compelled to no longer clog King Edward Avenue if Orleans commuters have a rail link to the downtown core? Will the economic needs of those living on the north bank

of the river be served by such narrow views? Residents in Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s east end need to remember that this project does not exist only to make their lives miserable. It is a regional project and must serve the needs of the region, which means proving to be a benefit to not just Ottawa and Gatineau, but Ontario, Quebec and the National Capital Commission. This is not to suggest this is a simple, easy task. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why after many years of dis-

cussion and planning, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still no bridge. There will never be a perfect location for the bridge that makes absolutely everyone happy. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the nature of significant, city building projects. Just look at Lansdowne Park or light rail. Both have elicited strong reactions from a variety of constituencies about how best to proceed. But in neither case is doing nothing a real option. Does this mean thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no

room for discussion about where to put the bridge? Of course not. Perhaps there are other options to consider outside the presently considered Kettle Island, Lower Duck Island and McLaurin Bay corridors. If a strong case can be made to all the relevant stakeholders, perhaps something new would be considered. But it is long past time when we can simply put our heads in the sand and not build a bridge. The future of all those who live in the National Capital Region is too important to stand alone at a time when we should be moving forward together.

Going bonkers over plastic bag bans CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

like the way a humble plastic bag can inspire a mighty ideological battle, with both sides marshalling lofty rhetoric and deeply philosophical theories on the subject. Is there anything more humble than a plastic bag? You acquire it almost by accident, you discard it without a second thought. You put garbage in it, not to mention dog poop. It is not a beloved household item. It is unlovable. And yet, a deep love has been professed for it by those who see the plastic bag as a symbol of societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need to fight intrusive government. Toronto city council sparked all this by passing a motion banning plastic bags. On the surface, this is not all that outrageous. Other societies, including Third World nations, have taken similar action, and even here plastic bag use has been on the decline with people turning to cloth bags rather than pay for plastic bags in grocery stores. But Toronto councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action has brought out those who deplore the state getting into their private behaviour and see the plastic bag ban as the thin edge of the wedge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fat end of the wedge being unclear at the moment. Perhaps they fear that our city councils will begin banning vacuum cleaners or spray-on starch. Amidst all these grand arguments we have to remember: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a plastic bag. Will we really miss it? Some of the oppositionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arguments need to be examined. Will more trees die as consumers and retailers are forced to switch to paper? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth a look. For that matter, maybe the increased use of cloth bags threatens the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cloth supply.

You can argue these and other theories forever, but the notion that a ban on plastic bags wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work is probably wrong. It rests on the assumption that people are incapable of change. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not. We switched to metric, to unleaded gas. We adopted the designated driver. And, in the most relevant comparison, we have adjusted to smoking bans. Who could have conceived of a smoking ban three decades ago, when there were ashtrays in offices, smoking in stores, in movie theatres, when more than 40 per cent of adults smoked. Today, the smoking rate is half of that, and almost all public places are smoke-free. Perhaps more significantly, most private places are smoke-free too, as even the most diehard smokers go outside rather than light up in someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. If we can do all that, we can do without plastic bags too. The consequences of not doing so can be seen in some countries where litter control is less strict than it is here. Plastic bags hang from the trees and bushes, cling to fences like some kind of filmy flower. And the results of a plastic bag ban can be seen in other countries, such as Rwanda, where you cannot even bring plastic bags into the country. The trees, bushes and fences are clear, and there doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be any public agitation for plastic bags to return. Either taxes or outright bans are in place in many countries and cities around the world with no apparent ill effects. So that leaves the main argument against banning plastic bags as the philosophical one â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that governments shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be in the business of banning stuff. As we have seen, banning stuff has mixed results. Prohibition didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work all that well. On the other hand, banning people from driving 150 kilometres per hour on city streets is a pretty good thing. For sure, people will miss having plastic bags as garbage bin liners, perhaps the role they were put on Earth to fulfill. But hey, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a resourceful people. If we can put a man on the moon, surely we can figure something out.

Human trafficking suspect arrested in Gatineau Three teenage girls arrested in shocking prostitution case Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – A third teenage girl has been arrested in connection with a human trafficking case in Ottawa. The 16-year-old was arrested by Gatineau police and returned to Ottawa on June 14. The teen is the third suspect wanted in what Ottawa police have called a shocking case involving girls being forced into prostitution. As of last week, Ottawa police had arrested two 15-year-old girls. The accused teens face multiple charges including human trafficking, abduction, sexual assault and forcible confinement. At a news conference on June 12, Staff Sgt.John McGetrick said they were pursuing a 17-year-old girl for forcing other teens into prostitution; after it emerged that a number of girls between the ages of 13 and 17 were lured to an address in the 2400 block of Walkley Road and subsequently driven to other locations for the purposes of prostitution. Police have since confirmed that the girl they were looking for is 16, not 17 as they originally announced. “This is something that shocked us in the community and we are actively investigating,” said McGetrick. The two girls were arrested after police received three individual

reports in late May and early June that triggered the investigation. “The investigations led us to the suspects,” he said. McGetrick said the ages of both the victims and the suspects make this a “disturbing and shocking” case. He added police are not aware of any similar cases of this magnitude. McGetrick believes social media was a factor in the initial meetings that were arranged between the accused and the victims. “The meetings were intended to do an enjoyable activity,” McGetrick told reporters. “There was no ill intent in the invite but obviously things changed.” At this point he said investigators do not have any evidence the three suspects were being controlled by anyone else. McGetrick said he is not aware of any other victims, but is urging any potential victims to come forward. He said their investigations had been limited by the fact that the names of the accused cannot be revealed under the terms of the Youth Criminal Justice Act. “It’s a complicated investigation searching for someone that you can’t tell the public about,” he said. Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact the Ottawa police sexual assault/ child abuse section at 613-236Eddie Rwema 1222, ext. 5944 or Crime Stop- Staff Sgt.John McGetrick said the human traffic case involving young offenders has shocked both the police pers at 613-233-8477 (TIPS).

Community looks to ensure public park access Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news – A plan for the building of an adult-lifestyle, low-rise development in Qualicum-Graham Park met with some skepticism at a public meeting on June 13. The city bought the land in 2008 for $2.5 million and had planned to clean up the site, build a community building and sell off most of the remaining property to gain back some of the investment. The community building was placed on the land at Nanaimo Park. Part of the original plan was to carve off a slice of land at 25 Esquimault to add on to Nanaimo Park. The city’s Ottawa Community Lands Development Corporation bought the land so they could put conditions on the type of development permitted on the site. Dhaneshwar Neermul, manager in the city’s realty services department, said the development corporation wasn’t regulated by the province in the same way the city itself is when selling a property. “It’s like one corporation selling to another so they can put conditions on the sale,” Neermul said. “It’s not just a case of it going to the highest bidder.”

Ottawa West Nepean MP John Baird, left, College Coun. Rick Chiarelli centre, and Qualicum Graham Park Community Association president Scott Pegrum, wearing hat, are pictured with city staff and residents who received the community builder award for their work on the site cleanup and construction of the new community building at the community association’s fun day on June 9. The plan – developed for the recently decontaminated former school site at 25 Esquimault – is the result of years of planning with the community and College Coun. Rick Chiarelli. Chiarelli said he was there when the initial construction

of the community building attachment to the former private school “struck oil.” “That started a soap opera of governments after the Ministry of Environment ruled the city (of Nepean) was responsible for clean up,” he said. Chiarelli said the initial

plan was to pump granular material into the plume of oil only to find that only removed about a tiny amount of oil at a cost of $220,000. “It became clear that we would have to tear down the building and excavate,” he said.

Chiarelli said the city is waiting for the green light from the Ministry of Environment and then they will put out a request to find builders interested in the development. The request for offers would include what the community would like to see in the development. Neermul said that means the project might not necessarily go to the highest bidder. “We will look at the best possible plans,” he said. According to the city’s numbers, the 1.3-hectare site could hold up to 28 units that could be bungalows or twostorey buildings, as long as it’s within the proposed eightmetre height restriction. The proposal would also carve off a tiny parcel as an addition to Nanaimo Park because of the space lost to the community building. Some residents felt the parcel was too small and said they would like to see it used to ensure public access from Esquimault to the park. Community association president Scott Pegrum expressed concerned the parcel of land had dwindled in discussions over the years to about one-tenth of a hectare. “I feel like we had given enough of a compromise, I would like to see a larger por-

tion,” he said. One Queensline Road resident said he would like to see the community pool their money to buy the land to use as soccer fields. There weren’t any takers at the meeting. He repeatedly questioned Neermul about the claim the developer wouldn’t be able to ask for higher density or greater height. Neermul said that because the development corporation was selling the land, the height would be a condition of sale and asking for taller buildings would put a developer in breach of contract. Aside from the height restrictions, the developer would be required to use low water landscaping, porous driveway materials, energy efficient appliances, natural ventilation and locallysourced materials wherever possible. Neermul said access to the park from Esquimault could be made a condition of the sale and put in the RFO. “There is a need for this here,” Chiarelli said of the proposed homes. “There is a market for people who want to downsize and stay in the community.” The community had a week to make suggestions to Chiarelli’s office before staff began preparing the RFO.

PC education critic consults in advance of policy papers Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Conservative education critic Lisa MacLeod was in Orleans on June 15 to discuss the creation of educational policy white papers with media. She was joined by Ottawa-Orleans provincial Conservative candidate Andrew Lister and Orleans-Cumberland public board trustee John Shea “Our core public services could collapse,” MacLeod said, if the education system remains as is. She cited the Liberals rejecting changes recommended in the Drummond Report as a starting point. “We’re hearing there need to be improvements,” MacLeod said, citing a lack of accountability. MacLeod said earlier in the day she

had met with school boards, police and representatives from Algonquin College during the Ottawa stop on her 12-city tour. The public consultations are part of a policy writing process, to result in the Conservatives releasing several white papers on education. “It’s been wonderful to hear,” she said of the input. MacLeod said the papers should be released in the fall, unless an election is called. She noted that the papers will not be party platform. “After health care, education is the next priority in Ottawa-Orleans,” said Lister. “There are lots of great ideas that haven’t been heard.” “Everyone has a stake in it,” said Shea. “No one is exempt.”

Some of the feedback MacLeod said she heard in Ottawa included the presence of cyber-bullying, and concern about keeping schools open in areas of declining enrollment, and built in areas of “exploding enrollment” she said. One of the items they discussed included building more community schools, similar to the attachment of John McCrae Secondary School and Walter Baker Sports Centre in Nepean. “It’s a great way to leverage assets,” MacLeod said. “There’s a lot of common sense and lots of willing and able partners.” “It’s like comparing apples to oranges,” MacLeod said when asked education was in a better state when the Conservatives were in power. “That’s not the point. The point is looking forward.”

Heights. “There’s a huge need (for a park),” said Faduma Yusof, who helps run a youth program for girls at the Winthrop Court Community House. “Whenever we want to do any outdoor activities, we have to walk a little further. It would be an amazing convenience to just step into the community and use that space.” The designs were presented at an open house that took place on June 13 at Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre. Part of the designs include a junior accessible play structure, gazebo, and accessible picnic tables. At the meeting, residents were also asked to give feedback and suggestions based on what they saw from the initial designs. Currently the area doesn’t have much green space, other than the space behind the fire station and some common areas and basketball courts where children can play. Since the park is on a hill, there’s also a design that shows a slide build right into the hill. Bay Coun. Mark Taylor said the park is the first one to be created in his ward in 20 years, and said the idea for a new park came directly from Winthrop Court residents when he was canvassing back in 2010. “It turns out this was something the community wanted

Bay Coun. Mark Taylor spoke at an open house June 13 at Pinecrest Queensway Community Health Centre about a new park going in at Winthrop Court. for a long, long time,” said Taylor. “We don’t have a lot of space to play with, but we can be creative with what we have.” Al Becking, from construction firm Aecon, was asked by the city to come up with a design for the park. He said it was important to incorporate ideas community members had already thought of, specifically children’s play equipment and creating a space for social gatherings.

Becking said based on the community’s input, the initial design could change. “There are certain things that are conceptual and the individual elements within the play areas can always be changed,” he said. “It’s not cast in stone by any means. It’s just food for thought and to get the conversation rolling.” However Yusof said she’s happy with what she sees from the design and thinks it will be a great place for everyone in

the community. “I think it’s lovely,” she said. “It offers a good balance of physical activity, or if you want to go sit outside. I know how the space is looking right now, and this seems so cool. It’s a good combination.” The park is expected to be completed by the summer of 2013, and updates will be posted on Taylor’s website at baywardlive.ca. With files from Laura Mueller

Trees, shrubs protect shorelines EMC news – more than 19,000 native tree and shrubs were planted along seven kilometres of degraded shorelines through the Making Shorelines Natural project. The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation and Rideau Valley Conservation Authority say the two-year project has been a community success. “The goal of this project was to improve water quality in Ottawa creeks and streams by planting 12,000 native trees and shrubs along four kilometres of degraded shorelines in the city,” says project manager Andrea Klymko. “Thanks to the dedication of local landowners, businesses and community volunteers and the generosity of our funding partners, we were able to beat our goal by over 7,000 plants and three kilometres. “These new plants are now providing valuable wildlife habitat, filtering contaminants, slowing storm water runoff and protecting shorelines from erosion.” Recent studies have proven

that many of our tributary streams and creeks are in worse environmental health than the larger Rideau and Ottawa rivers themselves. The Making Shorelines Natural project targeted some of the most neglected creeks, forgotten watercourses and unnatural shorelines in the city to help reverse the damage right at its source. Each new tree and shrub planted is a little environmental cleaning station that binds the soil particles to prevent erosion, cleans the air by absorbing carbon dioxide, cleans the water by filtering out contaminants, buffers wind and noise with foliage and will eventually create some very significant wildlife habitat in some very urban situations. This project would not have been possible without the more than 600 volunteers that came out to help plant in spring of 2011 and 2012.

Your eyes take care of you; shouldn’t you return the favour? Until we experience problems with our vision or our eyes, many of us don’t really appreciate that our eyes are the most complex organ we possess, after our brain. With more than two million working parts, the ability to be used instantly at any time of the day or night, and the capacity to process 36,000 bits of information every hour, our eyes make a contribution to our lives that is almost impossible to measure. Actively taking care of our eyes should be a priority for all of us, and finding a professional eye clinic where qualified and caring practitioners can take part in our eye health is an essential first step.

Introduce your eyes to regular care The fresh colours and pleasing layout of Eyes2Care’s new clinic at Greenbank Hunt Club Centre immediately send a positive signal to the eyes. That first impression is a wonderful place to start, but it’s the people who work at Eyes2Care who really make a difference. The Eyes2Care clinic offers a deeply experienced and caring team which together add great value to every patient’s experience. Three fully qualified and long experienced Doctors: Dr. Oscar Godoy de Leon, Dr. Maria Jaramillo and Rebecca Hannan anchor the team. The presence of a former general ophthalmologist on the team means that referrals can be made immediately to tertiary eye care providers. The team is rounded out by the dispensing and clinic staff who include Iran Gomez Medel, C.C.O.A., as well as three fully-qualified Mexican optometrists who have retrained to practice in Ontario: Cuauhtemoc Felix, Martha Aviles Solorio and Horacio Carrillo. This warm and professional team offers the full range of eye care services - from annual eye exams, to selecting and fitting customized frames and contact lenses, to assisting with eyewear maintenance - in English, French, Spanish and Russian.

Did you know?

Why seeing a professional matters In addition to taking our eyes for granted, many of us just don’t spot when we may need assistance. Eyes2Care reports that it isn’t unusual for new patients to come in, explaining that they don’t believe they have a problem but have come in at the urging of a spouse or family member, only to discover that they badly need reading glasses, as is the case with Presbyopia.

Having just opened its doors in May 2012, Eyes2Care is offering 25% off eye exams and plenty of great deals on frames and lenses until August.

Presbyopia - the ability to focus on objects up close - is a naturally occurring part of the aging process and happens to everyone eventually. This in combination with ‘computer syndrome’ - tired, sore eyes and blurred vision after working on the computer for long stretches of time - is responsible for prompting most middle-aged patients to have an eye exam.

OHIP covers the cost of one eye exam per year for children (up to the age of 20) and anyone over 65, providing a great opportunity to get into the eye clinic regularly and stay on top of any changes in eye health or function.

For children, Ametropia is the most common condition bringing them into the eye clinic. Without 20/20 vision, more often than not vision is uneven between the two eyes and this difference can lead to vision problems, including lazy eyes, which can be resolved with corrective lenses. For older patients, glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration are typical age-related eye problems that will cause symptoms resulting in a visit to the eye clinic. Careful following by the Eyes2Care optometrical team can deal with problems as soon as they arise and help to avoid unnecessary worsening of symptoms in many instances. Some trends are not worth following In the internet age it’s now possible to purchase almost anything online. Eyes2Care’s owners are concerned that this trend has extended to contact lenses. More and more people requiring corrective lenses choose contacts, particularly as advances in the technology have made it possible to wear them longer in comfort. An increasing number of people - particularly teens - are wearing coloured lenses as a fashion item, and are often unaware of the dangers of incorrect usage of contact lenses. For your eye health, it is vital that contacts are sized and fitted properly, not worn more than ten hours per day (meaning that backup glasses are required for anyone requiring corrective lenses), and that proper cleaning and lens care is followed. Making use of the professional services offered by a trusted eye clinic just makes sense when dealing with delicate eye tissue and function.

Eyes2Care offers a familyfriendly setting including pintsized furnishings and quiet activities for youngsters.

R0011464251

When we remind ourselves that 85% of our human ‘knowledge’ comes from our eyes, making time to see a trusted eyecare professional on a regular basis just makes sense. If you are overdue in caring for your eyes or looking for the best clinic to visit, consider Eyes2Care at Greenbank Hunt Club Centre.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No wrong doorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for crime victims Unique Ottawa network provides access to resources for victims of crime Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - When Sharon Rosenfeldtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-year-old son was murdered in 1984 in British Columbia, there was no place for her to seek support in her community. Thirty years later, Rosenfeldt said it was an emotional experience to witness the launch of a unique program to assist victims of crime in her new home of Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very emotionally healing for us to know that victims of crime â&#x20AC;Ś they have places to go,â&#x20AC;? she said. Rosenfeldt was thanked for her advocacy through the founding of Victims of Violence during the June 11 launch of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coordinated Victims Assistance Network at police headquarters on Elgin Street. The philosophy behind the network is described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;no wrong door,â&#x20AC;? meaning that no matter where victims turn, be it a doctor, teacher, law enforcement officer, service agency or employer, they are shown where to get access to services they need to recover and deal with their experience. The initiative will create a formal network of service

tawa police. That oversight from the police, as well as the endorsement of Mayor Jim Watson and police Chief-

Charles Bordeleau, makes the network unique in Canada, Rosenfeldt said. From a victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspec-

tive, it will mean that any place a person who has suffered due to crime initially turns can connect them with

the most applicable and helpful resource for their situation. While an informal network of service providers tried to accomplish the same connections in the past, the new network will provide a complete list of useful services available to victims that have been vetted by the network. Providers in the network will also work together to share information and collaborate on new or improved victims services. While other areas have attempted to establish similar networks, the networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cochairwoman Sgt. Jill Skinner said Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program is a leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aware, there are very few networks like this that are operating,â&#x20AC;? Skinner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are committing as a city to be focused on victims.â&#x20AC;? The mayor said he is pleased with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;dream teamâ&#x20AC;? the network has established over the course of two years of work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Victims of crime are dealing with so much â&#x20AC;Ś This will help them with their next stage of healing,â&#x20AC;?

Friends of Lansdowne wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seek appeal opment of Lansdowne.â&#x20AC;?

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

CONSERVANCY

EMC news - The Friends of Lansdowneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal battle with the city is over. The citizen group announced on the morning of June 14 that it would not appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada in a bid to replace the Lansdowne redevelopment deal with one chosen through a new competitive bidding process. Friends of Lansdowne member Doug Ward delivered the news in front of the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park. He said that some Friends of Lansdowne wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happy with the decision, but the choice was â&#x20AC;&#x153;overwhelminglyâ&#x20AC;? supported amongst the decision makers in the group. Although the group had legal advice that it had a chance of success at the Supreme Court, and many people wanted the Friends to pursue a case against sole-source procurement at that level, the fact that a panel of Ontario Court of Appeal judges voted 3-0 against the Friends during its last appeal dissuaded the group from further legal action Ward said. The resources available to the group are also limited and probably better used towards related causes, Ward said.

Laura Mueller

On June 14 in front of the Horticulture Building, Friends of Lansdowne member Doug Ward announced the group will not appeal its legal challenge to the Supreme Court. The legal challenge cost about $600,000 in lawyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bills, about half of which has been paid through fundraising and donations, Ward said, adding that the decision not to appeal was not purely financial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We move forward. While our legal case was active, we could not challenge the city

on other fronts,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is no longer the case. We want to assure our supporters that we will continue to work for them.â&#x20AC;? The group will put its efforts into scrutinizing â&#x20AC;&#x153;every prismâ&#x20AC;? of the Lansdowne â&#x20AC;&#x153;bad dealâ&#x20AC;? as it moves forward, Ward said. The group also wants to

connect with other organizations in the city to â&#x20AC;&#x153;engage in a wider civic dialogue to promote greater integrity in city decision-making,â&#x20AC;? as well as work on changes to the Ontario Municipal Act to strengthen procurement laws. Mayor Jim Watson issued a statement minutes after the Friends made their announce-

ment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an important moment in our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history as it removes a significant legal hurdle which could have further delayed the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park,â&#x20AC;? he said in the statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It also provides greater certainty to our residents that the city can now proceed with the redevel-

There is still one outstanding legal quandary that could trip up the park redevelopment: the Lansdowne Conservancy, an organization that proposed an alternate redevelopment plan for Lansdowne, has requested an appeal to the provincial court of appeal. In March, the Divisional Court of Ontario dismissed the Conservancyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal action by ruling it was an abuse of process and awarding the city $10,000 in legal costs from the Conservancyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder, John Martin. Martin said the Ontario Court of Appeal will likely make a decision on whether to hear the appeal in July. City spokeman Michael Fitzpatrick said the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to be made before the end of July or early August, but it could â&#x20AC;&#x153;take some timeâ&#x20AC;? as it is completely up to the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discretion. Ward was quick to point out that the Friends of Lansdowne group isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throwing its support behind the Lansdowne Conservancy proposal. Rather, the Friends wanted to see a competitive bidding process that would allow the Conservancy and any other group to have its idea considered for the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redevelopment.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Manotickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market will open this weekend with 11 local food producers offering their wares in the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic centre. The small market has partnered with Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill to set up in front of the Carriage Shed in Dickinson Square every Saturday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. from June 23 and August 25. The market has been spearheaded by organic Roots and Shoots Farm proprietor Robin Turner, who runs his community-supported farm in Manotick Station and has been very involved in organizing the Ottawa Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market at Lansdowne Park. The Manotick marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate is to provide access to locally grown, sustainable food from the immediate area. As far as farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets go itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relatively small, with room for only 15 vendors in the lot near the mill. Turner said the goal is to allow residents to use the market as their major source of fresh groceries each week - and with the mix of vendors heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lined up, it just might be possible. Roots and Shoots will offer a wide variety of organic produce, and other vendors will provide berries and fruit, fresh cheese, eggs, pork, baked goods, local grains and oatmeal and of course Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Millâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fresh whole wheat bread.

also a beautiful park, a bridge, another park on the other side, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ducks and ďŹ shing. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown Manotick which is an incredible place to walk around and shop,â&#x20AC;? he added. Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill manager Isabelle Geoffrion shares his excitement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When (Turner) contacted me last summer we thought it was great because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a natural ďŹ t. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really excited to do this,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It goes well with the mill itself and the story of where bread and ďŹ&#x201A;our comes from. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very passionate about local food and the 100 mile diet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re surrounded by a farming community that is thriving and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really exciting to reconnect with that side of things, and encourage people to be more conscious about where their food comes from.â&#x20AC;? Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill has had farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets in the past, but they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worked out, she noted. This time, she hopes Turnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expertise will make the market a success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we realized was we needed to partner with someone who was familiar with the process, was knowledgeable about markets and had contacts in the farming community,â&#x20AC;? she said. The vendorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fee to participate will partly go back to the mill for building maintenance, programming and promotion.

EMC news - As part of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, the Canadian War Museum wants visitors to discover four unique perspectives on the conďŹ&#x201A;ict, those of Canadians, Americans, Aboriginal peoples and the British. Visitors to the museum will now know a bit more about those perspectives since the Canadian War Museum launched its 1812 exhibit, which runs until January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The War of 1812 was one of the pivotal moments in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey from colony to country,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill, president and CEO of the Canadian Museum of Civilization Corporation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the most ambitious projects undertaken by the War Museum.â&#x20AC;? The museum will highlight the four different perspectives through

artifacts and its exhibition Faces of 1812, which will complement the overall 1812 exhibit and will feature portraits from Library and Archives Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection that highlights the human side of the war. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This collaboration with the Canadian War Museum offers visitors an unexpected encounter with works of art from (the Library and Archives Canada) national portrait collection,â&#x20AC;? said Daniel J. Caron, deputy head and librarian and archivist of Canada in a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will also be a great opportunity to deepen our understanding about our history.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill said this exhibit wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t focus on one individual battle or just recognize two sides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This provides a deep insight into the causes of war,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It also underlines how profoundly Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development has been shaped by armed conďŹ&#x201A;ict.â&#x20AC;?

Declare war on high fuel prices by properly inflating your tires EMC news - Drivers suffering from price fatigue when filling up can get some relief by measuring their tire pressures monthly to ensure they are properly inflated. Canadian drivers will pay an estimated $703 million in unnecessary fuel bills in 2012 simply because one or more of their tires are under-inflated, according to data from Natural Resources Canada and the Rubber Association of Canada (RAC), which represents tire makers. This year alone under-inflated tires will cause motorists to waste an estimated 533 million litres of fuel – enough to power 275,000 vehicles for a full year. This needless fuel consumption will also release an additional 1.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. A tire that is under-inflated does not roll as smoothly or as easily as it was intended. The result is increased rolling resistance, which requires the vehicle to burn more fuel to push the tire down the road. According to research, one third of Canada’s 20 million automobiles have at least one underinflated tire. A motorist riding on under-inflated tires who annually drives 20,000 kilometers, for example, can save at least $100 at the pumps if they ensure their tires are inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended level. Despite

these benefits, only 30 per cent of Canadian drivers measure their tire pressures monthly. “Canadian drivers have never been better positioned to put a dent in their fuel bills,” says Glenn Maidment, president of the RAC. “Low rolling resistance tires, particularly when used in combination with a disciplined approach to proper tire inflation and maintenance, offer tangible savings.” Measuring and adjusting tire pressure is an easy, four step process that takes no more than five minutes. Here’s how: • Find the right inflation pressure by wheel position on the vehicle placard, which is commonly located on one of the vehicle’s inside door posts, or inside the glove compartment or fuel door. • Remember to only measure pressure when the tires are cold. If you have been driving, wait three hours before measuring tire pressure or the reading will be inaccurate. • Use a reliable tire gauge when measuring pressure. A visual inspection is not an effective way of measuring tire pressure. • Remove the cap from the valve stem, press the tire gauge onto the valve and take the pressure reading. • Add air until the recommended air pressure is achieved. If you overfill the tire, release air by pushing on the metal stem in the centre of the valve, then remeasure the pressure.

EMC news - Members of the Probus Club of Western Ottawa received a lesson on the ABCs of fraud prevention on June 12. Katimavik’s Doris Braslins, Sharen Bowen of Nepean, and Barrhaven’s Fred Christie, all from the Rotary Club of West Ottawa – along with police officer Steve Smith – schooled those in attendance on how to avoid being a victim. “The intent is not to scare you but it is really wise to be aware there are imposters out there,” said Braslins. Some of the more frequent frauds committed against seniors include door-to-door sales, mail and email fraud, and identity theft. An example of a door-to-door sales fraud is a contractor saying he or she is offering discounts because the company is working in the area, said Braslins. The “granny scam” is an email fraud where the receiver gets an email saying it’s the grandchild, who’s in some kind of trouble and needs money wired to them, said Braslins. They always stress not to say anything to other family members because “mom and dad will kill me,” she said. Smith said there was an example in the Durham region where a grandmother lost over $120,000 in three months to the email fraud. The scammer pretended to be her grandson, saying he was in trouble and needed cash. “She even saw her grandson at a

create fraudulent cards or use someone else’s. He added it’s important for people not to carry passwords or Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) in their wallets. If a person loses his or her wallet with a debit or credit card, the bank or credit institution “won’t replace your money if your PIN is in your wallet with your card,” said Smith. Another scam includes someone calling saying they have to update an account for a specific credit card, said Smith. They ask for the expiry date and three-digit security number on the back of a credit card in order to purchase items on the Internet. “Never provide personal or financial information over the phone unless you know who you’re talking to or you initiated the call,” said Braslins.

$3 million expected to improve end-of-life care Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroalnd.com

EMC news - A three-year initiative to support the development of new palliative care models have received a onetime federal funding grant of $3 million. The funding will help ensure that hospice palliative care is available at the community level not only for patients, but their families as well. During the announcement held at the Hospice at May Court in Old Ottawa South on June 12, federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq said Canadians who are ill and are at the end of their lives need and deserve compassionate

care that is seamless and tailored to their needs. “That is why our government is providing funding for the Canadian Palliative Care Association and its partners to improve access to palliative care for Canadians and support the sustainability of the health care system,” she said. The contribution will facilitate the delivery of palliative care in a range of settings and by a variety of care providers. “It is important that health care professionals think about how to care for people near the end of their lives, so families don’t need to be burdened,” said Aglukkaq, add-

ing that palliative care means easing the strain on families, providing care to loved ones, so they can make the most of their time together. She said a majority of Canadians would prefer to spend their final days at home, but 60 per cent of them still pass away in hospitals. She said the goal of the initiative is to deliver palliative care that will make it easier for health care providers to honour the end of life wishes of Canadians. “This approach delivers better care for patients while allowing fewer people to occupy hospital beds and allowing health care dollars to go even further,” said Aglukkaq. Supporters of hospice palliative care in the Ottawa area have had concerns about shortage of hospice beds for some time now, according to David Hogberg, executive director of the May Court. “Of the 80 beds identified in the recent study as a requirement for the Ottawa area, we have only the nine residential beds located at the Hospice at May Court,” he said. He added that as the population ages, the demand for hospices beds will only increase. In an effort to address this critical situation, Hogberg said a major initiative to integrate hospice services in Ot-

the area of hospice palliative care as we will be the first jurisdiction in Ontario to initiative a city wide integration of hospice services.” For Sharon Baxter, executive director of the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association, the funding will help with provide more easily

accessible hospice palliative care to more Canadians and their families. She said studies show that 41 per cent of all Canadian seniors are dealing with two or more chronic diseases, and those illnesses account to approximately 70 per cent of all deaths.

Local teacher honoured for making a lasting impact emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anyone who claims teachers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change lives hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t met Linda Grossi. The Osgoode Township High School teacher was honoured last week for making a lasting impact on her students, with the Baillie Award for Excellence in Secondary School Teaching from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University. Grossi received the award on Wednesday, June 13 at the convocation of former student Sarah Hunter, who nominated Grossi for the award. The history and social science teacher said she was caught off guard by the honour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very, very surprised because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University did such a thing, and I was very touched to learn that I was getting the award,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a really, really nice surprise.â&#x20AC;? According to Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the award recognizes secondary school teachers who pass on a life-long desire to learn

and inspire their students to pursue their goals in higher education. Students nominate former high school teachers, and the university awards up to ďŹ ve teachers across Canada each year. Hunter, a political science student, said in a statement that Grossi has spent her entire career encouraging students to explore and celebrate the world around them.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really love what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing. I love my subject area and I try to convey that.â&#x20AC;? LINDA GROSSI

â&#x20AC;&#x153;On a personal level, she has been an inspiration and role modelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an outstanding, intelligent, and generous woman who has assisted me for the past eight years in becoming the person that I am today,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said. The award comes in the nick of time, as Grossi will retire at the end of June after a 28-year career teaching history, social sciences and

languages in both French and English programs. She has taught at Osgoode Township for the past four years, and taught Hunter at John McCrae Secondary School in Barrhaven. The fact that the award is student-nominated is ďŹ tting for Grossi, who said she has always kept her students at the forefront. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My whole career has been about students, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a very student-focused teacher,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that the classroom is her priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most important place, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where you see the students consistently every day.â&#x20AC;? She said she tries to show her students the joy of what they are learning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a very sincere teacher, I really love what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing. I love my subject area and I try to convey that,â&#x20AC;? she said. Over her career she has been involved in countless extra curricular activities, from school dances to Europe trips. She has paid particular attention to supporting the arts. Grossi is one of four award winners this year.

Is active play the next dinosaur? EMC news - Have you noticed parks, playgrounds and neighbourhood streets are not bustling with kids playing like they used to be? Once known as a regular part of a child’s day, active play is now on the brink of becoming extinct, says Active Healthy Kids Canada. The 2012 Active Healthy Kids Canada report card on physical activity for children and youth reports that Canadian children and youth are not playing enough; assigning an “F” grade for active play and leisure. Forty-six per cent of Canadian kids are getting a mere three hours or less of active play per week, including weekends. Additionally, kids spend 63 per cent of their free time after school and on weekends being sedentary. This is alarming news, as active play is a promising, accessible and cost-effective solution to help Canadian children and youth meet the Canadian physical activity guidelines. “Unstructured play is declining with each generation, and this is having a negative effect on the health and wellness of our children and youth,” Mark Tremblay of Active Healthy Kids Canada said in a press release. “Kids of all ages should have regular opportunities for active play, where they can let loose, explore, run, climb, crawl and play in parks with friends, like their parents once did. “Active play is fun, but it is also shown to improve a child’s motor function, creativity, decision-making, problem-solving and social skills.” 32

Barriers, including screen time and parental safety concerns, force children and youth into highly-controlled environments, where they have little opportunity for active play. Fifty-eight per cent of Canadian parents say they are very concerned about keeping their children safe and feel they have to be over-protective of them. Safety concerns, whether or not they are founded – such as crime, traffic, neighbourhood danger, outdoor darkness and lack of supervision – discourage parents from letting their children and youth play outdoors. Instead, they are lured to the increasingly ever-present screen. Canadian kids are spending seven hours and 48 minutes per day in front of screens, dramatically exceeding the guideline of no more than two hours per day. Even at school, recess is increasingly being threatened by adult beliefs that free time is better spent in academic study. To ensure Canadian children of all ages have opportunities for active play, parents and caregivers can encourage children to choose active play over more sedentary behaviours, such as sitting in front of screens. After school and weekends are opportune times to encourage active play, especially outdoors. An additional benefit for parents is that active play does not have to cost anything. To address safety concerns, parents and caregivers can take turns supervising and playing with children outdoors or encourage kids to play with a buddy.

Remembering John Jordan The Merivale Expos dedicated their high school baseball season to the memory of umpire John Jordan by wearing a special crest. The Expos had a terrific season dropping a tough decision in the semifinals to the tier 2 finalists from Woodroffe High School. Jordan was a fixture in the high school league since its inception and he greeted students and coaches with a good word and a smile, and always reminded them how lucky they were to be playing ball. The jersey crest was designed by Merivale High School fine arts department head Irv Osterer.

Nepean swimmers tops in Ontario again Synchro team takes medals in Etobicoke EMC news - After attending the recent Ontario Open Age Group Championships in Etobicoke, the Nepean Synchro Swim Club returned to Ottawa as champions; ranked first in Ontario for the second year in a row. Considered the largest synchronized swim meet in Canada, the four-day event welcomed more than 500 competitive athletes from across the province, who participated in more than 20 events. As a result of receiving two gold medals, four silver medals and one bronze, as well as fourth, fifth and sixth place ribbons, the club was awarded the Club Aggregate Award Trophy, giving them the honour of being named the top synchronized swimming club in Ontario, for the second time in the club’s 30-year history. The event was particularly significant for the girls this

Beat the heat and stay safe EMC news - As the temperature rises, the Red Cross reminds Canadians to stay cool, healthy and safe. While the summer season is a favourite time of year for many, extensive exposure to extreme heat can result in serious medical conditions such as heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. “First and most importantly, be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day,” says Lesley Anderson, First Aid program representative of the Canadian Red Cross in Ottawa. “A significant amount of water is lost through sweating, and that needs to be constantly replenished.” Heat-related emergencies include heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Children, the elderly and those with certain health conditions are particularly susceptible. TIPS:

• Drink plenty of cool fluids, but avoid caffeine and alcohol. • Avoid being outdoors during the middle of the day, when the sun is at its strongest. • Work and exercise in brief periods. Take frequent breaks in a cool or shaded area. • Dress in light, loose clothing. Wear a hat and sunglasses. • Wear sunscreen with a high sun protection factor. Symptoms of heat cramps typically include muscle contractions, usually in the legs or abdomen. Anyone demonstrating signs of heat-related emergencies should be moved to a cool location and given cool water to sip and to apply to the skin. Call 911 for anyone showing significant signs of distress, losing consciousness or whose symptoms are becoming more severe.

year, as several of the members of the 2012 chronized swimming team were on hand to award medals to the girls and take photographs, as part of a kickoff event prior to their departure for the Olympic Games in London. In addition, the meet was the venue for the announcement of a special award, as senior swimmer Meghan Sommerville was named as a Synchro Ontario Athlete of the Year. In the past 30 years Nepean Synchro has introduced hundreds of girls to the sport of synchronized swimming, through its recreational and competitive programs. As the season winds down, the club has much to celebrate and several trophies to highlight its commitment to excellence, but more than that the club wants to recognize each swimmer for striving hard

all year to reach her personal best, and for the dedication and commitment that it requires to be part of a team of elite athletes. More information on the club’s recent successes and programs can be found on the club’s website at www.nepeansynchro.com.

EMC news – Tyler Kealey’s long search to find a producer for his second album ended on a stretch of Carling Avenue last February. The 31-year-old Bells Corners musician was driving home from Mono, Ont., a town north of Toronto, where he had his first meeting with Darryl Neudorf, a former drummer with Canadian rock band 54-40. It had been four months since the album’s previous producer dropped out of the project – four months of a fruitless search for a replacement. “It sort of left me high and dry and I had to scramble to find a way to do this and I wasn’t having much luck finding people who were available.” Lost in thought, Kealey flipped on the radio, and the sounds of 54/40’s I Go Blind blasted from the car’s speakers. “I took it as a bit of a sign,” said Kealey. “It felt like a signal from somewhere that, yeah, this was going to be good.” Kealey signed with Neudorf’s company, Operation Northwood, and over the course of a month working with Neudorf, the musician put together the 11-song CD: And Somehow I Fell Upon This Place. “The two of us clicked,” said Kealey. “It helped us shape the album in a different way I imagined making it in the first place.” The album’s CD release party will be held at the Velvet Room, located at 62 York St., on Sunday, June 24, starting at 7 p.m. Musicians Mike Yates (Amos the Transparent) and Steve Boudreau will join Kealey on stage. Tickets are available at the door for $5 or by visiting the website www.tylerkealey.com. “I was beginning to think this album would never get made,” said Kealey. The album features an indie-rock sound with a splash of pop, with “haunting piano notes.” “The sound is a little bit spooky,” said Kealey. “It’s an incorporation of violin and cello instead of electric guitars. “It’s not a slick, commercial pop record like I thought I would make,” he said. “But it’s much more meaningful, and true to what I am.”

A few weeks ago, the Ontario Urban Forest Council (OUFC) in partnership with the Ottawa Forests and Greenspace Advisory Committee held a very interesting workshop on heritage trees at the beautiful Central Experimental Farm and Arboretum. The definition of what is a ‘heritage tree’ was the topic of a whole session at the workshop, but I think the definition of Paul L. Aird (Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto), which was used throughout the conference can be roughly summarized to define a heritage tree as a unique tree that has natural and cultural heritage value either on its own or within a special group. This is a very timely topic here in Ottawa as we strive toward the implementation of the residential intensification goals contained within the City’s Official Plan – meant to make the most out of every development project and minimize the negative impacts of the fast growth we’re experiencing.

Tyler Kealey will hit the Bluesfest stage on July 8. The indie-rock performer will release an 11-song album at the Velvet Room on June 24. Musicians on the track include cellist Alex McMaster, Kevin Kane, from Grapes of Wrath, acoustic guitar, and Steph McAlear, drums. Neudorf and Kealey chose the album’s 11 tracks from a collection of 40 songs. The songs represent a musical journey from darkness to light, said Kealey. “I’m really happy with that because it matches what I went through.” BLUESFEST

Kealey will once again hit the Bluesfest stage this year in the Barney Danson Theatre on July 8. “I think that will work really well with the new material because it’s more of a listening CD as opposed to a dancing CD,” said Kealey. “I think the theatre will be a great opportunity to showcase these new songs in the way I recorded them.” Kealey has been a fixture on the Ottawa music scene since he first started performing at the age of 12. He was playing accordion in his fam-

ily’s Celtic band when he was a Grade 9 student at Holy Trinity Catholic High School. The versatile musician, who plays the piano, acoustic guitar and harmonica, has performed in a dueling piano show at downtown’s Fat Tuesday’s restaurant for several years and has toured and recorded with bands like Quarter Life, harpoon, Shawn Tavenier and Charlie Major. For three years, Kealey studied jazz piano at Carleton University before dropping out of the program so he could pursue his music career full-time. “I got really, really busy performing music in Ottawa,” he said. Bluesfest offers local musicians a unique opportunity, said Kealey. “It’s the one gig you get to showcase what you do as an artist,” he said. “Ottawa can be a tough city when it comes to doing your own music.” In 2004, Kealey released Spotlight Sanctuary, a five-song EP and in 2009 he produced his first full-length album, Characters.

As you may know, I am a member of the City’s Intensification Implementation Group, which is charged with working with City staff, the development industry and community stakeholders on addressing barriers to intensification so that Council’s approved intensification targets can be met. The Intensification Implementation Group focuses solely on the Urban and Suburban areas, which is where trees old enough to be considered as possible heritage trees are fewest. In addition to the definition of a heritage tree the workshop also held sessions on a variety of related topics including; the economic, ecological, social and cultural value of trees; how communities and individuals have identified potential heritage trees and worked to celebrate and protect them; how to research, nominate and evaluation nominations to designate a tree a heritage tree through the Trees Ontario/OUFC Heritage Tree program; the legal and policy options available for celebrating and protecting heritage trees under the Municipal Act, the Planning Act and the Ontario Heritage Act; as well as the proper implementation of renewal and maintenance activities to maintain a Heritage Tree’s health, aesthetic and heritage values (and how this may differ from general tree stewardship practices). As you can guess the workshop lasted a full day. At the end of the day several arborists and foresters also completed the certification process to inspect trees that have been nominated through the Trees Ontario/OUFC Heritage Tree program. For a tree to be designated a heritage tree under this program it must be nominated online at www.treesontario.ca. If Trees Ontario staff determine the tree is a potential trees, then a certified evaluator will visit the tree to determine if it meets the necessary criteria. In all more than 80 people, including Ottawa advisory committee members and city staff, took a full day to learn about this important topic. Though there are many barriers for today’s urban and sub-urban trees – both natural like the ash borer, and manmade, such as the needs of community and infrastructure developers – it appears the awareness and desire to do our best to protect our important heritage trees is beginning to grow. This was the first in a series of workshops the OUFC will hold. I’m told the next will likely be held in Toronto in the fall. For more information on the OUFC and the heritage tree workshop please visit www.oufc.org. Information on the Trees Ontario/OUFC Heritage Tree program can also be found at www.treesontario.ca.

Keep your kitchen safe for children EMC news - Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paramedics are reminding parents of the dangers the kitchen can pose to children. Last week, paramedics responded to a call for a two-year-old boy who suffered second degree burns to his back after a kettle ďŹ lled with boiling water fell on him. The child is in serious condition in hospital. The kitchen is one of the most dangerous places in your house for infants and children, Paramedics would like to offer these important kitchen safety tips: â&#x20AC;˘ Use rear stove elements as much as possible â&#x20AC;&#x201C; keeping hot pots as far from your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reach as possible. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep stools and chairs away from countertops and the stove. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep electrical cords from kitchen appliances tied up and placed as far away as pos-

sible from your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reach. â&#x20AC;˘ To avoid painful burns, set water tank temperature at no more than 49 C (120 F). â&#x20AC;˘ Teach your child that the stove is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hot spot.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ Keep knives away from childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reach and avoid using tablecloths â&#x20AC;&#x201C; children love to pull on them. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep cleaning chemicals, medications, including vitamins and mineral supplements, in a secured cupboard well away from childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s access. â&#x20AC;˘ Plastic bags are abundant in any kitchen: they are a choking and suffocating hazard to your child. Paramedics also encourage parents, grandparents, guardians and caregivers to take a ďŹ rst aid and CPR course.

Sheepish passenger takes ride to town

I

t didn’t take long for us to realize this was no ordinary trip into Renfrew for our Saturday supplies. I loved sitting in the back of the car where all the action was. Three brothers and my sister Audrey kept the place buzzing all the way into town for the 20 kilometres. But that day Mother steered me into the front to sit between her and Father. But Father and Everett were yet to appear. I figured they were in the barn checking on the livestock. Then we saw them, half dragging, half pushing a full-grown sheep across the barnyard. Audrey let a moan out of her that could be heard in Admaston and said she would stay home if Father had any intention of cramming “that

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories sheep into the car.” Mother reminded her she was to pick out a new pair of shoes that day at Scott’s Shoe Store, so she had little choice. Mother said Father had to take the sheep into town where it would be turned over to a farmer from the Braeside area, who had made a deal with him. “Before you know it, we’ll be in town and the sheep will be gone,” she said. Everett said it had better be shoved in the only door in the back that had any hinges left

on it. The other one, tied on with binder twine, would take too long to open. It looked to me like the sheep wasn’t too happy about being pushed into either door. Finally, Father took its hind legs, Everett its front and they heaved it into the back of the car, right on top of everyone’s feet. Father slammed the door shut, which pushed the sheep further into the car, then Everett flew in behind it right over the door, Father jumped behind the steering wheel and

we took off. There were no windows in the car, just little roll-up blinds and we were all grateful for the air that passed through from one side to the other as Father careened down the Northcote side road. From all appearances, we were just a normal family on its way into town to do the usual Saturday shopping for supplies. Emerson said the sheep had relieved itself and Audrey said “that’s disgusting,” pushing her head out the side of the car as far as it would go. Mother, ever practical, told Emerson to use his foot and push it out the platesized hole in the floor in the

back of the car. And so, the “deposit” was made along the Northcote side road, which to others traveling the route wouldn’t find to be so unusual, since livestock could often be seen being herded up and down the road. The sheep was voicing its disapproval all along Raglan Street on the way to the drive shed where the drop-off was to be made. Emerson was laughing his head off. There was no sound or sign of Earl. He was likely buried under Everett, who was trying to keep the sheep from jumping out the side of the car. Father steered into the drive shed at the end of Raglan Street, came to a halt

and the sheep cleared the back door with one wild leap. The farmer who was there to collect it, pushed his straw hat to the back of his head and watched as the woolly animal tore around the lot like someone had filled it full of buckshot. My three brothers joined Father and the new owner and finally cornered it in one of the horse stalls. Audrey refused to get out of the car, even if it meant her new shoes would have to wait for another Saturday. Mother picked up what she needed at Walker’s and at Ritza’s Drug Store collected her weekly copy of the Philadelphia Inquirer. The rest of the shopping for our supplies would have to wait. As soon as we got back to the farm, my sister Audrey took a bucket, a towel and a bar of homemade soap and headed for the Bonnechere River. She insisted three days later she still smelled of sheep. The brothers were given the job of washing out the back of the car. Mother, long after the daylight had gone, was heard to say almost in a whisper, “no one ever told me living on a farm would be like this.” New York, where she had lived for 18 years, seemed very far away indeed.

O

f all the recipes I’ve made in the bread machine, this is without a doubt our favourite for everyday eating. From the comments I’ve received, it’s also a favourite with a lot of readers. Recently I was asked to repeat it for those who may have missed it. The secret to this loaf’s success is cottage cheese. The recipe doesn’t call for much, just 1/3 of a cup, but it makes all the difference in the texture and freshness of the bread. This loaf is moist and stays fresh, keeping well for three or four days. It’s perfect for making either sandwiches or toast. The basic recipe uses a combination of all purpose white flour and whole wheat flour. This gives the loaf more body than white bread without the heaviness of 100 per cent wholewheat. The sunflower seeds are optional. With or without them, this bread is delicious. I’ve also included a variation for making this as Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Both recipes make a 681 gram (1.5 pound) loaf. COTTAGE CHEESE BREAD

Bread machine loaf destined to be a favourite PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff • 1/3 cup cottage cheese • 3/4 tsp. salt • 1 tbsp. white sugar • 1 tbsp. shortening • 2 1/2 cups all purpose white flour • 1 cup whole wheat flour • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds • 1 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast Place all of the ingredients, except the sunflower seeds, in the breadmaking pan in the order given. Because of the cottage cheese, which can spoil in warm weather, don’t use the delayed start. Start the bread machine right away using the Whole Wheat cycle. Add the sunflower seeds when the machine beeps indicating Add Ingredients. When the bread is finished, remove the loaf from the pan. Let the loaf cool for at least one hour before slicing it. A serrated knife works best for cutting fresh bread.

CINNAMON RAISIN BREAD

• 1 1/4 cups water • 1/3 cup cottage cheese • 3/4 tsp. salt • 1 tbsp. white sugar • 1 tbsp. shortening • 3 1/2 cups all purpose white flour • 1 tsp. cinnamon • 1/2 cup raisins • 1 tsp. bread machine yeast When you measure the ingredients into the bread machine, place the cinnamon to one side of the flour and the yeast to the other side. Don’t let the spice touch the yeast because cinnamon can prevent the yeast from working properly. Start the bread machine using the Sweet Cycle. Add the raisins when the machine beeps indicating Add Ingredients. When the bread is finished, remove the loaf from the pan. Let cool for one hour before slicing.

One more reason to quit smoking: risk of blindness

If there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already compelling enough reasons for you to quit smoking, think about the risk to your vision. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-known that smoking can cause cancer, heart disease and stroke, up until recently there has been little awareness about the fact that smoking can also cause serious and permanent vision loss. For a long time, I personally bemoaned the fact that Canada had no requirements that cigarette packaging carry a warning about smoking and blindness. Cigarette packaging in other countries â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Australia, for example â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has carried the message Smoking Causes Blindness for some time. But on June 19, my wish will be granted. New regulations for tobacco products labelling in Canada mean that, as of June 19, retailers can only legally sell cigarettes that display new health warnings, including the fact that smoking increases your risk of blindness. SpeciďŹ cally, the warning points to the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is the leading cause of vision loss in Canadians 50 years and older. AMD causes damage to the macula, the central part of the retina responsible for seeing ďŹ ne details (such as reading print or seeing faces). People with AMD generally experience

blurred central vision and a growing central blind spot. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known for some time that primary and second-hand smoke from cigarettes is a major risk factor for AMD. Current smokers have up to four times the risk of developing AMD compared to non-smokers or past smokers. GOOD NEWS

The good news? Quitting can make a difference. Studies indicate that a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s risk for AMD will decrease each year they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smoke, so that after 20 years the risk is equal to that of someone who has never smoked. In addition to AMD, smoking is a risk factor for developing cataracts and vision loss from diabetic retinopathy. I sincerely hope those people who are still smoking will heed the new warnings about the risk of vision loss. They need to know that living with vision loss can be life-altering. Clinical depression is three times as common in people with vision loss compared to the general population. And seniors with vision loss face twice the risk of falls and four times the hip fractures. So if the well-known risks associated with smoking arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to make you quit, think about the implications of losing your sight.

Desperate parents seek school board support Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - Findlay Creek parents are demanding the Ottawa public school board approve an accommodation review that could pave the way for building a new elementary school in the area by 2014. The parents presented a Findlay Creek school survey taken by the area’s community association and a petition signed by 565 people calling for an accommodation review during the board’s business services committee meeting on June 14. The survey shows the community has the numbers required to sustain a new school, even when the school board says otherwise, said Sumana Jana, chair of education with Findlay Creek Community Association. “We have been doing a door-to-door survey, and we have gone to schools where our kids go to; like Elizabeth Park Public School, Sawmill Creek elementary school and

ents’ group. About 15 parents were on hand at business service committee to raise concerns and ask the reason for the delay in conducting an accommodation review. Responding to parents’ questions, Mike Carson, superintendent of facilities, said school board funding was outside their control, making it hard for them to set timelines. “It is the ministry’s responsibility and the timing is up to them,” said Carson. To him, the numbers of students being generated from the Findlay Creek area are at a stage where they would be difficult on their own to justify construction of a new school under the guidelines of the province. Jana disagreed, saying that numbers generated by their survey speak for themselves. “I was a little disappointed with his response. I think it is not the kind of response that a community who’s very frustrated wanted to hear,” said Jana. Mark Fisher, Ottawa public school board trustee for Gloucester-Southgate/Nepean/Osgoode, said he understands the community’s frustration since the project has been in the pipeline for quite

some time now. “Before I became a trustee for this area, I knew the board was talking of building this school in the Leitrim area since 2006,” said Fisher. Fisher said he is hopeful things are a heading in the right direction. In the last 12 months we have moved the yard stick in the right direction. “The balance has tipping in our favour in terms of a busi-

ness case for the school more and more within the last 12 months,” he said. The future closure of Elizabeth Park Public School, which accommodates many children from Findlay Creek, might shift timelines of opening a new school in the area in their favour, said Fisher. The building that houses Elizabeth Park is leased from the Department of National Defense and is now in need of

significant capital renewal. “If the lease gets terminated, we would want to move to building a new school. The choice becomes investing tax payer’s money the right way,” said Fisher. “I know there is lots of frustration, people have wanted the school decades ago but I think we are moving in the right direction and I am working hard as I can to make sure this project happens.”

Charlie is an unaltered male, tan Chinchilla who is about five years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on May 30 and is now available for adoption. Chinchillas’ soft fur, lack of odour and clean habits are a few reasons why they make great pets. They keep their soft fur clean by taking a dust bath two or three times per week, which is fun to watch! Chinchillas are very affectionate and offer lots of entertainment as pets. They need a large cage and lots of chew toys and healthy snacks. Chinchillas overheat easily, and should be kept in a cool environment. Nocturnal by nature, chinchillas are most active in the evening but can adapt to daytime activity. Chinchillas raised together can live together peacefully in same gender pairs. With regular, gentle handling, they will bond strongly with their pet parents. Charlie would love a home where he will be handled gently. Chinchillas like to be scooped up in both hands and held snugly against your body so they feel safe and secure.

Tali is a spayed female, black and white Great Pyrenees and Australian Shepherd mix. She is about 10 months old and was brought to the shelter as a stray on May 18. Talis is a large breed with a beautiful black and white ticked coat. She has a gentle and soft disposition with children and would love a home with children five years and older because of her size. Tali gets along well with other dogs, and would love to have friends to socialize with and help her come out of her shell. She was well behaved with the cats in the home of the people who found her, as well. Tali needs owners who will take her for daily walks. She’d rather not live in a bubble. She needs owners who will expose her to new places, things and people so she can become a more confident, well rounded dog.

SUMMER SAFETY FOR PETS

Every year during the summer months, the OHS Rescue and Investigation Services department receives hundreds of complaints relating to animals and hot weather. Dogs left unattended in parked cars top the list, followed closely by dogs left outside in the sun without water or shelter from the sun. Dogs do not have the ability to sweat, therefore if they are left for even a short period of time in a car (windows open or not), their lives could be in danger. With their body temperature normally at 39 degrees Celsius, a dog can only endure temperatures barely over 40 degrees Celsius for a very short time before they suffer from heat-stress, irreparable brain damage or death. Please call the OHS emergency line at 613-725-1532 if you see a dog in a car on a hot day. Here are a few other tips to keep your companion animals safe this

summer: ÊUÊvÊޜÕÀÊ«iÌÊëi˜`ÃʏœÌÃʜvÊ̈“iʜÕÌdoors, make sure there is adequate shelter for protection from the sun/heat. Outside kennels need to be well ventilated and situated in shaded areas.

Watch for signs of heat stress, excessive panting, disorientation, staring or anxious expression and weakness. Bring your pet to a cool area, gradually lower your pet’s temperature by immersing his or her paws in cold water or hosing him or her down and call your veterinarian immediately. ÊUÊ7…i˜Ê̅iʅi>ÌÊ>˜`ʅՓˆ`ˆÌÞÊÀˆÃi]Ê be especially careful with shortnosed dogs (pugs, bull-dogs, etc.) and older animals. Exercise your pets in the early morning or late

Hello there! My name is Eve and my 3rd birthday is coming up in August. I’m hoping I get to celebrate in style and go camping, I do love a good canoe ride. I came to live in Ottawa from a shelter and I love it here! Most days you’ll find me at the dog parks, playing with my buddies or going for a 5km run with my owners. I almost always have a Chuckit ball in my mouth. I do share my ball with others but mostly, I love it when my owners throw the ball for me to chase. My favourite playmates are my doggie-cousins Maggie, Gertie, Molly, Kayla and Jolie; I can’t wait to see them soon!

Blossom Park Public School to get the numbers of children from our community that go to those schools,” said Jana. She said the survey results show 190 kids from Findlay Creek are currently attending Elizabeth Park, 35 attend Blossom Park, 10 attend Sawmill Creek, five attend Roberta Bondar, five attend Leitrim Montessori and one is enrolled at Westboro Academy. She said there are 75 children in the Findlay Creek area up to age four who would go to the new school if it opened in 2014. “To us 321 is a really good number because we know schools that have less than that number,” said Jana In a letter to the director of education at the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, the association said the lack of a public elementary school in the area has resulted in children of Findlay Creek attending 16 different schools with six in OCDSB. Builders in the community anticipate 400 new homes by 2015, making the need for the school all the more important, states the letter. The board has previously said it would move ahead with an accommodation review “if time permits,” which is unacceptable, said the par-
