News - Canadian soldiers will walk in the footsteps of their forefathers when they visit the Netherlands later

this month. Over four days, members of the Canadian Armed Forces will cover 160 kilometres on foot as they take part in the International Four Days Marches Nijmegen. All 178 members will wear their standard uniforms and carry a pack weighing at least 10 kilograms as they walk the same terrain where many Canadian soldiers died while liberating the Netherlands during the Second R0011970715

World War. The Nijmegen marches began in 1909 as part of the training for Dutch soldiers. The four-day event has since become an international phenomenon, drawing both civilian and military walkers. This will be the 61st year that members of Canada’s military have been part of the four-day march. Many of the soldiers who will walk from July 16 to

19 met at the Canadian War Museum on July 3 for a departure parade attended by Rochus Pronk, the deputy head of mission at the Dutch embassy. “This is the largest walking event in the world,” Pronk said to the soldiers gathered at the museum. “There will be about 45,000 people from all over the world.” See DUTCH, page 2

Dutch ‘forever thankful’ to Canadians: embassy official Continued from page 1

Pronk said that 7,600 Canadians died liberating his nation. “The Netherlands remains forever thankful,” he said, adding that the walk symbolizes “the rock-solid bonds of friendship” between Canada and the Netherlands. RESERVIST MARCHES

Among those travelling to Europe for the 2013 march is Armed Forces reservist Steve Lasalle, who grew up in Barrhaven. Lasalle, 38, is a sub-lieutenant and a cadet instructor who works with the 96 Dundas Sea Cadet Corps, near Hamilton, Ont. He said he applied to be part of the Nijmegen march for three reasons – most importantly to “honour the sacrifice” of Canadians killed in action. “I also want to demonstrate to the cadets the aims

“It’s just psychological,” he said of the challenge. “The body is ready.” To get in shape, Lasalle gets up early twice each week to cover 10 kilometres before work. He also meets the 10 other members of his team one evening every week and every Saturday and Sunday for long-distance marches. The team’s training started in January on an indoor track and moved outside as the weather improved. Since then the team has walked in all kinds of weather, including scorching heat. The weekend team marches begin and end in London, Ont., and Lasalle said, unlike Ottawans, Londoners aren’t used to seeing soldiers in uniform on their streets and trails. “The interaction with the community has been overwhelming,” Lasalle said. “It’s been very positive. People stop us and bring us water.”

It’s just psychological. The body is ready RESERVIST STEVE LASALLE

of the program,” Lasalle said, listing physical fitness as a key aspect of being a cadet. He said he also wants to meet the test of marching 160 kilometres over four days.

FORMER MP

Former Nepean MP David Pratt, now a private consultant, was on hand to wish the marchers farewell at the

war museum. Pratt wore his medal from the 2003 march, which he completed while an MP and chair of the defence committee. Pratt said he fondly remembers the response of the Dutch public when the Canadian contingent passed. He also remembers walking about 500 kilometres during training for the Netherlands march, and watching some Canadian soldiers cut the boots off their swollen feet when they finished the march. “It’s one of the toughest things I’ve ever done,” Pratt said of the four-day march. “I salute everybody taking part. It’ll be a life-changing experience.” Canadians can follow the Canadian soldiers on Facebook as they march in the Netherlands. Search for “Joint Task Force Nijmegen.”

Annual tradition returns with new venue, events steph.willems@metroland.com

News - A popular summer tradition for dog-lovers is marking a quarter century this year. The Ottawa Humane Society’s Wiggle Waggle Walkathon brings Ottawans and their four-legged friends together to raise money for the shelter along with the sick and abandoned animals it cares for. This year’s walkathon will be taking place on Sept. 8 at the event’s original location, Queen Juliana Park, adjacent to the scenery and walking trails of Dow’s Lake and the Arboretum. “We’re heading back to where it all began, 25 years ago,â€? said Kelly BĂŠlair, events manager for the humane society. “We’re pretty excited about that.â€? Recent walkathons took place in the west end of Ottawa, meaning this year’s event gives more people an opportunity to show up. A section of the Queen Elizabeth Driveway will be closed to accommodate the participants. The walkathon is aiming to raise $125,000, a symbolic number in that this year marks the 125th anniversary of the Humane Society itself. Already, BĂŠlair said, one quarter of that amount has been raised. This year, a number of new events and fundraising ideas have been incorporated into the special day. For dog owners with a lot of energy to burn, the inaugural Run for the Animals promises a faster pace while raising $40,000 separately from the walkathon’s total. “The run was something we’d been approached by a third party to do,â€? said BĂŠlair. “We looked into it – our director of development is a runner himself – and thought it would be a good ďŹ t to the walkathon.â€? Despite the event being two months away, participants have already begun raising money. Among them is Lucie Marleau, who has fundraised for the Humane Society for 24 of the past 25 years, and currently has an online donation page (Lucie Marleau/Gatineau) at walkathon2013.kintera.org

The fun of the event coupled with the many odd animal sights are what keeps her coming back to the walkathon. “It’s a lot of fun and it keeps getting bigger every year,� said Marleau. “It’s the happiest place on earth.� This year’s event will feature a spokesdog named Milo - a one-year-old Border Collie/ Labrador mix who was taken to the Humane Society following a motor vehicle accident. Despite serious injuries requiring the amputation of one leg, Milo now has a new home and an important new role.

Strategy doesn’t go far enough, opponents say Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

I am very pleased to announce that City Council recently approved my motion recommending that the City honour the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War by naming a City park on Brookstone Street in Barrhaven ‘Gus Este Park’ after life-long community volunteer and local Korean War veteran Mr. Gus Este. Mr. Este has devoted his time to volunteering with national and local organizations, having served as District Governor of Lions Clubs International and as former President of Branch 641 of the Royal Canadian Legion. He is also a member of the Nepean Public Library Board, the Mayor of Nepean’s Task Force on Visible Minorities, the Ontario Lung Association, and the Head Injury Association. Residents are invited to the official commemorative naming ceremony at the park on July 19th, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. The park is located at 26 Brookstone Street in Barrhaven. Please contact my office for further details. I again offer my congratulations to Mr. Este for this very well deserved honour! IMPROVEMENTS TO BEATRICE DRIVE AND STRANDHERD DRIVE I am pleased to report that steps have been taken to help improve the traffic movements at the Beatrice Drive and Strandherd Drive Intersection. I have heard from a number of residents that drivers often take this turn too quickly. As a result, the City of Ottawa has constructed a new median between the northbound and southbound lanes of the intersection along Beatrice Drive and has modified the island on the south-west corner to improve safety when making a right-turn movement off of Strandherd. I would like to continue to remind residents to drive cautiously on all of our roads and thank City staff for their work to improve the safety at this location. PLANNED WOODROFFE AVENUE CHANGES ARE COMING TO BARRHAVEN TO IMPROVE SAFETY As you may know, the first steps towards safety improvements along Woodroffe Avenue have started with the application to close Woodroffe Avenue at Prince of Wales Drive. This closure application was planned by the Nepean City Council in 1997, prior to amalgamation. Although I was not on Nepean Council at the time, I trust that Nepean Council members had a progressive vision for the community that we now enjoy. These urbanization improvements will benefit both existing and future residents. As we all know, this area of our community needs proper pedestrian and cycling capacity and until now, has not been able to be developed due to the rural road structure currently along the stretch south of Chapman Mills Drive. The area infrastructure will also be urbanized with features such as streetlights, sidewalks, and a cycling network to be installed along the updated Woodroffe Avenue. The proposed sidewalk will run along the east side of Woodroffe up to Chapman Mills Dr. from Whitewater and on the west side from Cresthaven Dr. to Chapman Mills Dr. I have been advised that once this process is complete, the road will be closed in 2014. I encourage residents to visit my website for more information at: www. SteveDesroches.ca. JOCKVALE UPDATE I am happy to report that City officials have confirmed that the new bridge is expected to be open to traffic before the end of the year, in line with the original schedule. As you may recall, recent discovery of an endangered bird species was discovered in the area which required the intervention of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. I can tell you that from the moment the City was made aware of this challenge everyone worked hard to find a way to constructively move forward. Work has continued on the Jockvale Road Widening Project throughout the last few weeks and the construction of the Cambrian Roundabout has begun as part of this $23.9 million improvement project. I am pleased to see work will be completed on time and in a manner that avoids costly fines for the City. CANADA DAY IN BARRHAVEN I would like to thank Darrell Bartraw and his dedicated team of volunteers for all their hard work in once again putting together a phenomenal show for Canada Day at Clarke Fields in Barrhaven. Everyone I spoke to was very happy with the festivities and completely enjoyed the evening. Happy 146th Birthday Canada!

Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt urged speakers to provide substantive feedback so the committee could address if there are parts of the policy that need beefing up. There is still opportunity to make minor changes before the policy goes to council on July 17, said Nick Stow, the city planner who authored the report. He encouraged people to submit “constructive feedback.” CONFLICTS

Stow said another public meeting wouldn’t be helpful because the major issues, conflicts and solutions have been identified. Rehashing worries about beaver management, euthanasia and educational materials – the most controversial elements – would just be repetitive and not productive, Stow said. “The biggest issue is (that) we have is people from the urban area moving into the rural area,” said West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. People who grew up in a

rural area often have the basic knowledge and skills needed to deal with wildlife, but people from an urban area may not. The new wildlife strategy emphasizes that many humanwildlife conflicts can be prevented or solved by better understanding the dynamic. “Many conflicts result from carelessness or lack of knowledge of private citizens and public officials regarding the needs and behaviours of wildlife, especially urban wildlife. Property owners may inadvertently create the conditions that attract wildlife and put them at risk,” the proposed strategy reads. Alastaire Henderson, a Lowertown east resident who spoke to the committee, said she felt the consultation on the strategy started out with more consideration of the effects of wildlife in urban areas as well as rural areas, but became a rural-focused issue as the project drew to a close. Iola Price, a New Edinburgh resident and wildlife biologist,

The city’s proposed wildlife strategy is seeking to reduce the number of animals that need to be caught and destroyed in the urban area, but critics charge the new guidelines don’t go far enough.

0502.R0012058823

CITY OF OTTAWA NAMES BARRHAVEN PARK ‘GUS ESTE PARK’ IN HONOUR OF LOCAL VETERAN

News - The city’s new wildlife strategy doesn’t go far enough to protect beavers before the agriculture and rural affairs committee approved it on July 4. The city has been picking away at a wildlife strategy since early 2010, when council ordered a review following a series of issues with coyotes. Since then, a number of moose have had to be destroyed and urban sprawl has introduced suburban homes to areas that have habitats for animals like wild turkeys. Liz White, spokesperson, Ontario Wildlife Coalition, said the city’s claim that he strategy will reduce the number of beaver killed is unrealistic. She sat on the working group for the wildlife strategy but resigned in 2012 over disagreements with the policy’s direction. “There are no protections for beaver in the vast majority of the city of Ottawa if you pass this strategy,” she said. Currently, the city traps and kills around 150 beavers each year. Stow said the city could reduce the number of beavers it traps and kills by half over 10 to 15 years if it makes better use of “beaver deceivers” to protect culverts. The fences or other devices are used to block off the area of infrastructure like culverts, which the beavers tend to build dams around, damaging and flooding the culverts. But there is no funding in place to pay for those devices, which can cost between $200 and $2,000, depending in the type, Stow said. The strategy proposing a “balanced and humane approach” received little vetting from about a dozen delegates who spoke to planning committee. For the most part, they focused on deficiencies in the process used to arrive at the strategy. They called for an additional public meeting.

agreed. “The growth of trees and shrubs in urban areas … means wildlife will continue to move into the urban areas,” she said. El-Chantiry said the city needs to do more than simply post information on a website when it comes to informing the public about what to do when they encounter wildlife. Stow said the city does put together an information package for new residents, but admitted many people probably don’t bother reading it. He said adding a wildlife resources officer would create a point person who could respond to concerns and undertake targeted education. The city will be using the wildlife strategy as direction when it other documents and educational materials that will be needed to support the strategy. Planning an urban wildlife speaker series and additional school outreach should also help spread the word about how to deal with wildlife, Stow said. City planning manager Lee Ann Snedden added that her department could write up some materials the councillors could use to help promote the strategy and offer opportunities for input to contribute to tweaking the strategy and its implementation. The city’s role is limited when it comes to dealing with conflicts between people and animals on private property. Most of that responsibility is supposed to lay with the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources. But that department has been neutered over time by incremental budget cuts, ElChantiry said – leaving the city to pick up the slack. “In the absence of the MNR doing their job, we are trying to be nice (and) pick up the slack,” he said.

Seniors charity walking to raise funds for day care program The goal for this year’s walk and run, set to take place at Mooney’s Bay on Aug. 31, is $13,000. Meyers said $3,500 towards the goal had already been raised by early July. To raise pledges for the adult day care staff that are participating in the run, volunteers will host a garage sale at the Carefor’s facility at 2576 Carling Ave on July 20.

News - Carefor Health and Community Services is gearing up for their annual fundraiser. The charity, based on Carling Avenue in Nepean, aims to keep seniors in their homes longer. Robin Meyers, the program manager for the adult day program – which offers activities and therapy for seniors with dementia – said the walk is an annual fundraiser low-income clients pay for their portion of their payment to participate. The co-payment portion of the program – also a welcome respite for caregivers – is $20 and can be a barrier for participation, Meyers said. The centre also offers a program called Let’s Get Together. The program is aimed at seniors with mental illnesses like anxiety and depression. “A lot of those clients live in social housing or are on assistance and isolated,” Meyers said, adding monies raised will help to fund that program as well.

The sale will start at 9 a.m. and close at 1 p.m. with a barbecue running from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Meyer said clowns on the street across from the Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre will direct residents to the barbecue. Carefor, which started more than 100 years ago with two nurses and a buggy, offers a series of community-based

Motorcycle ride to be first fundraiser for autism program Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Dave Kunhle, grandfather of two girls who have recently been diagnosed with autism, decided he wasn’t going to sit around while they waited to start speech and occupational therapy with QuickStart, he would get on his motorcycle and start raising money. Kunhle said he participates in the annual Ride for Dad, so when his two granddaughters, Josie, 3 and Sofia, 16 months, were diagnosed with autism, he wanted to do what he could to raise money for the program that will help them develop skills and coping mechanisms. Kim Kunhle, Dave’s daughter-inlaw, said Josie’s diagnosis came in January 2013. Kim and her husband Kevin, who live just outside Carleton

Place, had noticed that she wasn’t meeting some of her developmental milestones. “She was having meltdowns, very similar to temper tantrums, but more severe,” Kim said. “She had started speaking and then stopped. She also stopped pointing and waving.” Kim said when her husband first broached the subject of autism, she was very resistant. “I really didn’t know anything,” she said. “I told him that it was impossible she had it; only boys get it.” They had started looking for help in May 2012, but met with resistance when their family doctor wouldn’t recommend the test for autism. Dave said when the diagnosis came, he congratulated his son and daughter-in-law, not because of the disorder, but because with answers,

they could develop a plan for the future. Long waiting lists for assessments through the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre and even longer ones for treatment leave a lot of parents frustrated said QuickStart founder Suzanne Jacobson. And thanks in part to QuickStart’s early intervention program Kim’s youngest daughter Sofia was diagnosed in April, something Dave said was devastating. “I just saw the burden it was to raise one child with autism and to see that doubled…Kevin and Kim are my heroes,” he said, adding that he’s happy to see his granddaughters able to get the help they need. “There has been a remarkable improvement in Josie in the last six months,” Dave said.

The first Motorcycle Ride for Autism is set to kick off Oct. 6 at 9 a.m. The 227-kilometre route starts at the Holiday Inn Express in Bells Corners and will take riders to Smiths Falls, Westport and Almonte before winding back to the Best Western on Robertson Road.

She was having meltdowns, very similar to temper tantrums, but more severe. KIM KUNHLE

Dave said he doesn’t have a financial goal in mind, but Ride for Dad had 57 riders in their first year. “If we get that many I will be happy,” he said. “We should be able to raise $10,000.” Jacobson said every dollar helps. The charity, based in Kanata, started with Jacobson’s two grandsons. The first, Alexander, now nine, didn’t receive treatment for autism until he was four-and-a-half. He waited 10 months for a diagnosis and then another two years for intensive therapy. When the family began to have questions about his younger brother Nathan, they paid privately for assessment and therapy. That got things going faster and now at four, he’s fully integrated into his school.

The Best In Retirement Living!

QuickStart works with parents to fast track a diagnosis and then begins speech and occupational therapy to make gains while parents wait for the intensive therapy available through the public system. They use a modified applied behaviour analysis therapy called Denver therapy, that uses the principle of replacing undesired behaviour with desired, but at a level toddlers can comprehend. Even QuickStart has a wait list now though, Jacobson said, adding the ideal timeline for diagnosis is two months, and then another six weeks before therapy starts. As the number of children with autism continues to grow – the Centre for Disease Control in the United States says about one in 88 are somewhere on the autism spectrum – society will have to find ways to cope. “If we don’t find a way to deal with autism earlier in life we are going to have more cases like Amanda Telford who had to give up custody of her autistic son,” Jacobson said, referring to an Ottawa woman who left her severely autistic son at an Ontario government office. QuickStart funds itself through a series of fundraisers and donations – that’s why events like the motorcycle ride are so important. The people who work for the program are all volunteers. “That way we can have more money going to help the children,” Jacobson said.

You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rock out on an empty stomach Volunteers prep food for Bluesfest Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The day before Grand Funk Railroad was set to hit the stage for opening night at Bluesfest, the kitchens in the hospitality building at Algonquin College were all fired up. Scott Warrick, an instructor in the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culinary arts program has been preparing meals for volunteers at the festival for the last five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great because we have some people who come back, (to cook) year after year,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding he has even recruited people into the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culinary program after their volunteer stint. Warrick likens the process to a military kitchen. Fifty volunteers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; spread over two four-hour shifts each day - prepare food for more than 1,500 volunteers on the ground at Lebreton Flats. Having volunteers come back, saves on the first aid supplies, Warrick

joked, saying the first year there were a lot of Band-Aids and finger protectors handed out. Volunteers prepare dishes like tandoori chicken, fruit salads, pasta salads and a whole selection of items like burgers and fries. The food is made in the kitchens at Algonquin and then

unteers onsite. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gets to Lebreton Flats at 1 p.m. every weekday and by 9:30 a.m. on the weekend. Her team is made up includes about 220 servers. She said a lot of them are between the ages of 15 and 17, looking to get their volunteer hours while checking out the local music scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often the first experience they have doing anything like this,â&#x20AC;? Dewar said. Working with young volunteers has its perks though, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had a lot come back. I have even seen some through to graduation,â&#x20AC;? Dewar said. This is Dewarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth year volunteering at the festival. She started doing it because of a love for music but now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interacting with the volunteers that keep her coming back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always try to sneak away to see some acts, but it never really works out, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to leave and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really want to,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Byelections only delay inevitable

B

yelections are traditionally an opportunity for voters to protest public policy and punish the government. But Premier Kathleen Wynne has taken it one step further by scheduling five byelections on Aug. 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a couple days before the start of a long weekend â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and in effect punishing the voters, by staging a vote during the dead of summer. The byelections were triggered by the resignations of five Liberals, including former premier Dalton McGuinty, long-time MPP of Ottawa South. The scheduling of the byelections is a little suspicious -- is the government hoping to escape the lash of the voter by staging them during a time that will attract the minimum number of people? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking about the dyed-in-wool Liberal/ Conservatives/NDP supporters, the kind who would cast their ballots in the middle of a hurricane. No, the timing of the summer byelection is aimed squarely at the balance of the electorate: the undecideds, the swing vote and, of course, the cottage country enthusiasts. In a perfect world, every Ontarian would take it as their duty to vote in every election, be they federal, provincial or municipal. But we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live in a perfect world, and we

only need to look at the dismal turnout for the last provincial election to prove that. A byelection figures to attract a remarkably smaller crowd. When scheduling an election, a government should endeavour to hold it during a time period designed to attract the most people possible. Unfortunately, this is a truism that only holds if the government actually wants people to vote. In fact, Premier Kathleen Wynne wants to avoid an election â&#x20AC;&#x201C; byelection or general â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for as long as humanly possible. For the few months sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in power, the fledgling premier has been bailing water for the Good Ship Liberal, cleaning up the mess left behind by Dalton McGuinty, who resigned shortly before the government was hammered with scandals, such as the gas plant fiasco and a police investigation of the Ornge air ambulance service. Meanwhile, the electorate waits with baited and steaming breath, looking to wreak vengeance on the Liberals by cleaning house in the next general election. While we commend the political acumen of our premier, she might want to consider simply biting the bullet and holding a general election â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not during a civic holiday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as soon as possible. To do otherwise is just delaying the inevitable.

COLUMN

Coming soon to a corner store near you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or not

T

here was some excitement in the newspapers recently over the possibility of beer and wine being sold in corner stores in Ontario. This is always a big story whenever it reappears, as it always does. A good guess is that it is a big story because beer and wine are important to journalists, the people who make the decisions about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big story. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not important because journalists like beer and wine more than the next fellow does. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important because journalists think it should be more important. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a self-image thing at work here. Newspaper people have long had the reputation of being hard drinkers. For some reason they like that reputation, even though it has long ceased to be deserved. Once it certainly was, but these days, if you go out to lunch with five newspaper guys, the heavy drinker will be the one ordering Perrier while the others all have tap water. Anyway, beer in the corner store becomes a big story, just like the ones that say wine is good for your heart. Wishful thinking is what it is and journalists are just as capable of it as anyone else. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of the big story carried the headline â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sousa wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule out store

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town alcohol sales.â&#x20AC;? This is a bit of a tipoff that beer and wine in corner grocery stores isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much closer than it ever was. When a politician is asked a question and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer definitely one way or another, the journalistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last resort is to ask: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would you rule it out?â&#x20AC;? Very few politicians dare to rule anything out completely, because they need to leave room to change their minds. So they say no, they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule it out, and you get a headline like that. Charles Sousa, the finance minister of Ontario, told reporters that there are no plans to change the structure of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario. His predecessor as finance minister turned down a request only a year ago to allow convenience stores to sell beer and wine. But then -- â&#x20AC;&#x153;asked repeatedly

Wednesday whether heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d allow convenience stores to sell booze, Sousa wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule it out.â&#x20AC;? He wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule it in either, despite being asked repeatedly, and probably for good reason. No one has come up with much in the way of justification for making the change. Customers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suffering from the current system. In all but the most remote areas, no one is very far away from a Beer Store or an LCBO. The main impetus for the current discussion is the Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convenience store chain, which says it will create jobs. It might also create trouble, which is probably why previous Ontario governments havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ruled the idea in. It is difficult enough now to keep booze out of the hands of underage drinkers and those who have had more than enough in an evening. Putting the corner store into the picture is going to increase the difficulty. Sure, the idea of creating jobs is nice, but the people in those jobs will have an unfair burden placed upon them. While employees for the LCBO and the Beer Store are wellpaid and well-trained to handle difficult situations, is it fair or realistic to ask the same of a convenience store employee, often working alone late at night?

If some greater good was involved, maybe that would be worth the risk, but it is difficult to see where the greater good is. Shorter distances, longer hours? Certainly Charles Sousaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predecessors have had difficulty seeing it. They might even think that Ontario has more urgent priorities, even if wine really is good for your heart. The only remaining question is why, given all this, Sousa is not more unequivocal on the subject. It may just be that he understands his role in the press conference games journalists play. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule that out.

The least most important thing

A

nyone who has watched Mad Men religiously for six seasons, as I have, will remember Don Draperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classic line: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re creative, the least important most important thing there is.â&#x20AC;? I was meditating on this line during my morning run on the Rockcliffe Parkway and it occurred to me that, in a different context, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the least important most important thingâ&#x20AC;? to humans is our natural environment. Last month, the Ontario government officially killed the plan in its current form to construct an interprovincial bridge at Kettle Island. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the cheers in my neighbourhood were heard across the city when the news broke. At the announcement, held in front of the Montfort Hospital on June 17, Transportation Minister Glenn Murray cited the interruption to ambulance traffic as one of the primary reasons for the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rejection of the Kettle Island plan. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often been on the lengthy list of arguments against the bridge proposal.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse But top of mind for residents and the politicians that represent them has been the impact a bridge would have on the natural environment bordering the Aviation and Rockcliffe Parkways. Despite this, for years, the National Capital Commission has undervalued the impact of the bridge on sensitive ecosystems in the area. More importantly, it has ignored the integral role of nature to the people that live in the surrounding neighbourhoods. Instead, the NCC continued to fork over millions of taxpayer dollars to an outside consulting firm, with the Kettle Island proposal predetermined as the best option. Unfortunately, as with so many things in modern society, the primary reason Kettle Island has been the favourite

is because it was predicted to be the least expensive option. But that argument only holds if we only think about value in terms of money. What if we actually took the time to consider the value of the natural environment? The trees and wildlife east of downtown and bordering the Ottawa River are not merely nice to look at. They are essential to the emotional, intellectual and physical well-being of city residents. This is especially true as we collectively face the challenge of maintaining and altering a city that will accommodate our aging population. Mayor Jim Watson is devoting a lot of his personal energy these days to the examination of a city that will be senior-friendly. An aging population means

health care costs are set to increase. It means that seniorfriendly housing needs to be top of mind for developers. It means that any transit plan put in place will have to be accessible for people with varying disabilities. All these things are important. Also important is to have a city where not just seniors but all residents can have easy access to the natural environment. There are a vast number of studies that link human connection with nature to everything good: people that have parks nearby are more likely to actively commute, have lower blood pressure, lower BMI, fewer health issues overall and better overall mental health. Even those with mental health issues -- depression, attention deficit disorder and stress -- have found that regular interaction with nature mitigates symptoms. As the city and province go forward, as proposed by Murray, to create a master transit plan, we can only hope that nature is considered, at minimum as the least important most important thing.

Councillor Diane Holmes, Chair of the Board of Health, welcomed over 130 residents to the Healthy Eating Active Living Innovation Forum at the Ron Kolbus-Lakeside Gardens Centre on June 18, 2013. The forum featured Kent Van Dyk, a local high school teacher, whose work as a chef has been featured on the Food Network’s television show Eat St. “Improving healthy eating and active living in Ottawa – through improved active transportation, better access to healthy foods and more supportive

environments to help make the healthy choice the easy choice – has been a significant priority for the Board of Health over the course of our term.,” said Councillor Holmes. “By bringing together various levels of government, grassroots initiatives and residents, we are setting the stage for real changes to make Ottawa a healthier city.” Local champions also shared their creative healthy eating and active living ‘recipes for success’ including starting a workplace running club and setting up a ccommunity kitchen. Some of the insp inspirational initiatives, organizations and businesses that were profiled at tthe forum included Causeway Right Bike, Boomerang dd West Carleton Kids Strollercise Strollercise, Country Kitchen, Kitchen Hidden Harvest, Ottawa Walking Walking/Running Program at Canadian Air Transport Security Authority, Ottawa Citizens Corpor Corporation Rooftop Garde Gardens, Brewer Park Com Community Garden Bio Biodome and Stone Sou Soup Food Works.

are complex health issues with many causes and contributors including the environments in which we live, learn, work, and play,” said Dr. Isra Levy, Medical Officer of Health.

“The forum was an opportunity for local champions to share their stories and make new links with other community members about healthy eating and active living successes across our city”

In May 2012, the Ottawa Board of Health approved the HEAL Strategy that aims to create a city that supports healthy eating and active living for all residents.

Nepean-based garage folk band to play Bluesfest Saturday Jennifer McIntosh jennnifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Entertainment - As they work on mixing their second album, Nepean-based Capital Grass and the No Men will take a break to play the Black Sheep Stage at Bluesfest on July 13. The self-described garage folk band was working on their debut album Don’t Wait for the Mountain when they first played the festival for the first time in 2010. The band started in 2006 with vocalist Matt Gower and guitarist Wayne Coulis, whose wives were both in the vet school at Guelph University. “We just started jamming at parties and people liked what they heard, so it grew from there,” Coulis said.

Mike Short, a bassist who lives in the Glebe, is the band’s newest acquisition. He started playing with them last July. Gower, the vocalist, hails from south Ottawa, and said he initially he wrote most of the songs. Now the group tends to work as a team, and work together on recording in Coulis’s Nepean home. The band – whose style has a touch of Canadiana folk – has played the Branch in Kemptville, along with the Elmdale Tavern and the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield. They are also regulars at the Rainbow Bistro. Gower, who also plays banjo, harmonica and mandolin, said they have been compared to Blue Rodeo. The style is a mix of the influences and each member’s tastes, he added. It’s Gower who coined the term garage

folk, Coulis said he enjoys punk rock and D’Arcy has Celtic roots. Short said he grew up listening to Gordon Lightfoot and James Taylor and branched out to hip hop and indie rock. The band is excited to play Bluesfest for the second time, both to expand their audience and to see some of the other local acts on stage that day. Plans for the future include a CD release party later this summer or fall, and branching out to tour Ontario. “We’d like to hit Kingston, maybe Toronto,” McGuire said. But we are pretty happy with where we are right now.” For more information on the band’s upcoming shows, visit www.capitalgrassandthenomen.com.

Let the foolishness begin Theatre troop hits parks again this summer Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Entertainment - A Company of Fools is once again hanging out in parks for your comedy pleasure this summer. The theatre troop opened up its 10th Torchlight Shakespeare season on July 3 in Strathcona Park with The Merry Wives of Windsor at 7 p.m. The Fools, who travel across the region and perform in community parks all summer long, offer patrons the chance to view Shakespeare under the stars. “In 2003, the Fools created what has since become our signature event – the annual Torchlight Shakespeare series,” the company posted on its website. “This event makes Shakespeare accessible by taking it out of the theatre and into neighbourhood parks each summer, allowing the Fools to bring our unique brand of Shakespeare right to your back yard.” In keeping with the company’s foolish-fun, only six actors will take on the roles of more than 15 characters for the play, which is directed by Cartriona Leger. The shows will run from July 3 to Aug. 17 with a 7 p.m. start time each

evening. While the shows are free for all, a hat will be passed around the audience to collect donations. The company will be visiting city parks from Orléans to Stittsville and every where in between. The Company of Fools is Ottawa’s oldest professional Shakespeare company and to celebrate its 24th year in operation and the 10th anniversary of the torchlight series, the festivities will continue into the fall this year with Torchlight Too: Hal & Falstaff. This second Torchlight will offer an adaptation of Henry IV Part 1 and 2 with bits of Henry V and Richard II thrown into the mix. The play will be adapted and directed by founding Fool Margo MacDonald. This indoor production will tour to three different venues from Sept. 2 to 22. Tickets will be “pay what you can” donation, but audiences will have the option to purchase tickets in advance, guaranteeing admittance, by booking ahead on eventbrite.ca for $20 per person. Both the summer productions will feature the same group of talented artists – some familiar faces to Fools fans and some brand new foolish actors: Simon Bradshaw,

The Company of Fools launches its 10th year of Shakespeare in the park with the Merry Wives of Windsor in Strathcona Park, running until Aug. 17. John Doucet, Melanie Karin, Matthew John Lundvall, Geoff McBride and Katie Ryerson. Vanessa Imeson

schedule can be found at fools.ca or by contacting the Fools at 613-8637529.

Canada Day at Clarke Fields    

  Dear Neighbours, The month of June saw us attending numerous community activities and graduations. High School graduation is a huge milestone in a young personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. I was happy to return to my old High School, Woodroffe, wish the graduates continued academic success and participate in their commencement ceremony. As Chair of Community and Protective Services I was also pleased to attend the Recruit Graduation for Ottawa Fire Services. After months of studying and training the Ottawa Fire Services welcomed 24 new men and women to the Ottawa Fire Department. Congratulations to all! CANVASSING... Over the coming weeks my team and I will take advantage of the warmer weather and longer days. We will be out knocking on doors throughout the summer as we connect with you, the residents of Bay Ward. We want to hear how things are going in your neighbourhood. Canvassing gives me the opportunity to speak with many of you and to ďŹ nd out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to you. OLDER ADULT PLAN/SPRING INTO ACTION As Co-Chair of the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Older Adult Plan I am excited about the progress we have made and the initiatives we have introduced to ensure our City is and continues to be age-friendly. We have to recognise the growing needs of our older residents but also our aging population. Outside of Victoria British Columbia, there are more seniors in Bay Ward per capita than anywhere else in Canada. By 2031 there will be more seniors in our City than children under the age of 15. Our City is taking the necessary steps to ensure older residents have the services they need and have access to those services. Recently the City held the ďŹ rst of many Spring into Action â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Meet Your Services Fairs. These fairs provide visitors with a variety of information all in an effort to keep them healthy, safe and living comfortably in their homes. It is also an opportunity to encourage those who attend to participate and make use of our Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services. One initiative which was just launched is an esubscription service. You can sign up to receive notiďŹ cations about services, activities and events for Older Adults. You can ďŹ nd more information and sign up by visiting the Older Adult web page at: http://Ottawa.ca/en/residents/olderadults

VOLUNTEER SERVICE You may recall reading about our new volunteer service project. We have had such positive feedback and interest I wanted to mention it again; we will ask residents to volunteer as we continue to renew and rebuild our west end neighbourhoods. In exchange for their hard work, there will be rewards. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been listening and heard from our community that employment; accreditation and education are often locked behind the barriers of income, opportunity and access. In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workforce, being trained in your discipline alone may get you in on the ground ďŹ&#x201A;oor but the elevator to the higher ďŹ&#x201A;oors is usually reserved for those who have acquired additional skills. Everyone knows that you need experience to get a job and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a job without experience. By offering access to training, certiďŹ cates, mentorship and networking opportunities there will be a real reward for the hard work that volunteers invest. I would encourage you to watch our website for more details. If you represent an organization that has a project in need of volunteers please let us know.

Rotarian sets goal for food cupboard Past-president has one month to lose 16 pounds, raise $3,000 Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - Steve Sharlow, the past-president of the Nepean-Kanata Rotary Club, has just over a month to lose 16 pounds and raise $3,000. Last summer, the Rotarian pledged to raise $10,000 for the Kanata Food Cupboard and lose 100 pounds by Aug. 22, 2013. When he began his mission, Sharlow weighed in at 302 pounds. With just over a month to go, he’s down to 218. “I started off with a 54 (inch) pant,” said Sharlow. “Now I’m down to 42.” Seeing the rising number of families using the food cupboard drove Sharlow to choose the non-profit as his pledge recipient. In 2012, the Kanata Food Cupboard helped more than 2,500 families, up from 1,670 in 2011. While usage climbed last year, donations declined. Being overweight is a food problem, but there are many people who have difficulty buying the basics, said Sharlow in an initial interview. “We got to know a little bit about their plight,” said Sharlow, who lives in Country Club Village with his wife, Karen. “It’d be nice to roll in at $10,000.” So far, Sharlow has raised $7,000. Many pledges have come in dollar for pound lost, from as far away as Australia, he said. “It’s never easy but you don’t ever backslide because people are watching,” he said. “I’ve been very disciplined.”

ily doctor has been monitoring his health. “I try to do about 10,000 steps a day,” he said. “If it’s thunder and lightning, I go to a mall.” He said he’s noticed that doing daily chores is easier, along with walking up and down stairs. Even his sleeping, has improved. “You get a little joy out of the fact you’re feeling better,” he said. A final weigh-in will be held on August 22. To donate to Sharlow’s challenge, visit nepeankanatarotary.com/steve.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The province has given the green light to $36 million for the second round of the Smart Grid program. Ontario Minister of Energy Bob Chiarelli invited Ontario companies and educational institutions to apply for the funding during an announcement at the Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence on July 2. The program was originally launched in April 2011 and supported nine projects to the tune of about $14 million. Chiarelli said 600 direct and indirect jobs were created by the projects funded in the first round of the smart grid program. It supports Ontariobased projects that test, develop and bring to market the next generation of energy development. Chiarelli said it is supported by investments like Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $4.7-million smart meters. The idea is to connect the electricity system with new technologies that will reduce service disruptions, increase conservation capacity, waste less energy and increase grid security. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Projects like the one Prolucid (a software engineering company) developed give local distribution companies more automated control and the ability to pinpoint an outage,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The power will be back on as soon as the storm is over. Distribution companies will know the moment power goes out in your home.â&#x20AC;? Niraj Bhargava, CEO of Energate, whose consumer-connected demand response project was funded under the program last year, said the company employs 40 people to develop energy management solutions. Kent MacDonald, president of Algonquin College, said as leaderof an educational institution graduating the next generation of skilled labourers, he recognizes the importance of funding sustainability initiatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The investments being made in advanced energy technology will positively impact the future careers of our graduates,â&#x20AC;? he said. Project applications for the second round of funding will be accepted until Sept. 6.

PET OF THE WEEK

Bianco This is Bianco who adopted us some years ago. He was a street resident of the Main St. Lees Ave area. He had decided that he liked our backyard and refused to go away. When no one answered our ad re “found white cat”, we named him Bianco and he very gladly moved in. The two incumbent residents Charlemagne and Josephine were not too happy at first to have a less aristocratic cat than they themselves are, move in with them, but in a short time they all became good friends. Bianco is very loveable appreciative and cuddly, and a more appropriate name would have been “my shadow”. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

Summertime and the livin’ is easy, until a heat wave strikes and the recent weather in the Ottawa area makes it difficult for furry friends to stay cool. You may think that a backyard pool party or a trip to a local beach that allows dogs is a perfect way to beat the heat, but there are some things to think about before you dive in. If you’re swimming with your dog, don’t get in over your head. Many dogs will try to climb on their guardian’s head or shoulders when they tire. Keep a close watch on dogs near pools: an untrained animal will probably head for the nearest edge of the pool to get out, but slippery pool walls do not offer an easy exit. Panic can lead to exhaustion. Barking may be difficult for a dog in the water, making it tough for them to cry for help. Use a canine life vest or PFD. A well-fitted canine life vest is an easy way to keep your dog safe on a boat or while swimming

in lakes and larger bodies of water. PFDs are made just for dogs and are available at many stores – including the Ottawa Humane Society’s retail store located at 245 West Hunt Club Road. A good PFD will have flotation all around your animal’s body, not just along their backs and will be brightly coloured and have a large grab handle along the back of the jacket. If your dog has never worn a PFD, give them time to get acquainted with it before actually getting on the boat. Get your pet used to the PFD in small steps. Start with wearing it in and around your home, then outside for short walks and finally aboard the boat. Make sure the life jacket fits properly and allow your dog to practice swimming in it. To keep your dog from swimming too far away, use a long nylon lead. Keep a close watch to make sure your dog doesn’t get tangled in the lead. This is a great way to make sure new swimmers are relaxed and comfortable in the water.

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

Meet Serena, a two-year-old, spayed female, gold and white Golden Retriever who loves to learn! This sweetheart was brought to the shelter as a stray on May 17, and is now ready to find her pack leader! Serena is a bright, and fun dog who just wants to please. Her and her new owner

will be sure to blow away any competition in obedience classes! Serena has a long, beautiful coat that will require some grooming to stay nice and soft, and to help reduce shedding. Serena is a “Special Needs” adoption. She came in to the shelter with a bad ear infection, and though she seems to be responding to the treatments, we are unclear at this point if her ears will be a chronic problem or not, as this dog’s new

owner you should be prepared for this possibility by discussing this with your veterinarian. Meet Smudge, a 6-year-old, neutered male, brown tabby and white Domestic Shorthair cat who loves to cozy up with his human and is available for adoption! Smudge is patient and has a great easy-going disposition. He wouldn’t mind sharing his household with cats and children, as long as they are cool as a cucumber, just like him. Smudge has only ever known an indoor lifestyle, and would rather not be an outdoor cat. Smudge loves to play and would love if his new family could provide him with great toys! For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

Going hungry was always one of Mary’s fears

T

he sauerkraut barrel was just about empty in the summer kitchen. It has served us well since the early fall when the whole family spent many evenings shredding cabbage to fill it to the brim. The salt pork barrel was empty too and had been thoroughly washed and set out on the back stoop to dry in the sun. The smallest of the three barrels had long since given up the last pickled herring. Even the vegetables in the root cellar were getting scarce. Now what were we to do, I wondered? Would we starve, just like the starving Armenians Mother talked about all the time? It would be many weeks before we would have carrots and potatoes from the garden. Now I had something else to worry about. Back then, it seemed, I could find many issues to send me into a state of anxiousness. Mother said I was born with furrows in my brow, whatever that meant. Worrying if we had enough

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories food to keep us alive was constantly on my mind this time of year. I took my concerns to my sister Audrey. She always seemed to have an answer for everything. At first she laughed out loud when I asked her if we were about to starve since all the barrels that once held our daily sustenance were empty. Then she saw that I was sincerely worried and she took me to the old swing in the grape arbour to give me a long talk on how I was worried for nothing. At that very moment, she pointed out, wasn’t our bake table full of freshly baked bread? Weren’t there enough loaves there to last us most of the week when Mother would again bake up another batch? So there would al-

ways be sandwiches, always bread pudding for dessert. And in the smoke house, wasn’t there slabs of backbacon, roasts of pork and sausage links, enough to feed half of Renfrew County? “Stop worrying, Mary,” she said. “We won’t starve.” Of course, my wiser sister Audrey was quite right. Soon there were sprigs of new lettuce showing in the garden, enough to take to the dinner table and for lettuce sandwiches, which I loved with a passion. Fresh lettuce with a spattering of sugar and vinegar between two slices of buttered freshly baked bread -- now that was a treat! Then Audrey took me down into the dugout under the house. I had told her the last time I had gone down with the dish pan to bring

up vegetables for supper, I had to dig away in the sand before I found a carrot. Audrey pointed to the shelves down there that for generations held preserves and pickles. There on those shelves were enough glass jars, full of beans in brine, onions hanging in mesh bags and sealer after sealer of preserved raspberries, crab apples and wild blueberries. “Now do you think we are starving?” Audrey asked. Of course my much older and much wiser sister was right. Just because the barrels in the kitchen were empty there was still food aplenty to last us until the garden was ready. I could put my worries aside. I recalled what my father always said when he was discussing the issues of the day: “It’s a poor farmer indeed, who can’t keep food on the table to feed his family.” Although not my favourite, we had as much milk to drink as we wanted. There was always a big jug of fresh milk in the ice box and newly churned butter in

glass bowls. Our hen house full of hens provided us with enough eggs for our own use with lots left over for Mother to peddle in Renfrew every Saturday morning. We could expect a chicken dinner every Sunday. Mother, long before we would set out for church, would have stuffed at least

Now what were we to do, I wondered? Would we starve, just like the starving Armenians Mother talked about all the time? two fat birds and put them in the Findlay Oval oven. If there weren’t enough vegetables in the sand bin to tuck around the chickens, we made do with bowls of pickled beans or canned tomatoes from the cellar. Although Father never considered it a meal, Mother had what we all called her

“everything goes into it” pot of soup simmering just about constantly on the back of the stove. Hulls of vegetables, anything left over from the dinner table, scraps of meat, leftover gravy, whatever she could find went into the soup-pot. Father, most nights, when he wasn’t too tired from dawn to dusk working in the fields, would sit down just before he fell into bed and with a couple pieces of homemade bread sponging up the soup, ate heartily of what he called “a wee bite before turning in.” No, on thinking about it, I worried for nothing. We wouldn’t starve on the farm just because the barrels were empty. Food was all around us, and there was always Briscoe’s General Store, where we could stop for maple cookies, a couple slices of bologna and the basics like flour, tea and sugar. All we had to do was ask for it and tell Mr. Briscoe, “just put it on our bill, please.”

Myer’s Volkswagen Shows West is Best 501-2500 Palladium Dr. Kanata

Keith Elgi and the store owner , Ashraf Altaslaq cut the ribbon at the Grand Opening of the new community I.D.A. Pharmacy

The new I.D.A. pharmacy, located at the Greenbank Hunt Club Centre, is locally owned and operated with a strong focus and e to the community. Owners, Dr. Esmail Merani, Dr. Aziz Dallah, and Mr. Ashraf Altaslaq, all call the area around the Greenbank Hunt Club Centre ‘home’. With the neighbourhood spearheading the return of a community drug store, management at Burnford Realty needed to ensure the highest quality and community focused pharmacist for the Greenbank Hunt Club Centre. The owners set out to create a health desnaon in their pharmacy, focusing on preventave measures, health management and home healthcare products. Counselling services are a major feature, offering much needed guidance to anyone managing mulple prescripons, drug sensivies and chronic health condions. All pharmacists at the Greenbank Hunt Club Centre I.D.A. pharmacy locaon are trained diabec counsellors who can offer advice, lifestyle coaching, help with product selecon and even give injecons. Specialist help can also be offered in the areas of heart health, asthma and chronic obstrucve pulmonary disease, food intolerance tesng, herbal consulng, quing smoking and SAD light therapy. Growing in demand, compound prescripons are a major focus of the pharmacy team. Customized medical preparaons area a highly useful opon for many people today. Food ingredient sensivies and allergies area a significant factor for many customers, and compounding provides peace of mind. Some people have difficulty swallowing, absorb medicaons abnormally, or find themselves facing a short supply of their regular drug. Preparaons suitable for infants, children and pets require special care. In all cases, compounding is the answer. R0012197774

As Volkswagen’s global popularity continues to grow, it’s causing increased traffic and sales at all Canadian dealerships. Myer’s Volkswagen in Ottawa’s West has chosen to take a decidedly customer-centered approach in resolving the growth issues caused by this increased attention when they open their doors to a new expanded facility at 501-2500 Palladium Drive in the Palladium Auto Park this Saturday, June 22nd. Since taking over the busy Bells Corners retail outlet (formerly known as Citiwest VW) in 2010, the Myers Automotive Group has applied their unique philosophy of ‘customer-first’ thinking in every aspect of the VW store. The results are amazing. Sales volumes rose by 70% and the customer satisfaction rates experienced similar dramatic increases. VW owners have always been a loyal group, sticking with their brand when others around them may have thought their choices were quirky and eccentric. But now it seems the whole automotive consumer world is in love with VW’s brand of quirkiness. Car buyers have found that underneath the skin, VW is all about bringing the latest available technology to serve in terms of performance, efficiency, safety, and comfort. And while auto critics may have, in the past, been excused for their humorous views on VW’s styling (think Beetle and Microbus), not even the harshest critic has an unkind word on the styling of today’s Volkswagens. Ottawa’s Myers Group of retail facilities believes that loyal customers deserve top treatment and that’s what’s in store for them at the new Myers Volkswagen. Located in the heart of Ottawa’s auto retail sector; the Palladium Autopark with its own 417 interchange, Myers VW will welcome shoppers into a bright ten-car showroom allowing them to learn all about Volkswagen’s advantages in a hands-on manner surrounded by the vehicles they’re interested in. Service customers will be treated to a climate

controlled drive-in reception centre leading to a 16 bay technology department designed to take care of every maintenance and repair need. While parking on the old location was definitely a challenge, the new facility will have plenty of accessible spaces making a quick stop or an extended visit a breeze. Being located right off Highway 417, means easy connections to any area in the Ottawa/Gatineau region, perfect for service and sales customers alike. What won’t change at Myers Volkswagen is the friendly open style of service that their customers have come to enjoy and benefit from. The entire staff is making the move west along with vehicles, parts, equipment and furniture. General Manager Trevor King credits a very dedicated team with keeping customers satisfied and everything running smoothly even in the midst of this major move. He witnesses on a daily basis their efforts in making sure every client gets the most out of their experience, whether it’s a new or pre-owned vehicle purchase, or a quick oil change, or a major repair. And of course Myers VW customers love having access to the longest service hours in the city, and that definitely won’t change. The service and parts departments are open from 6 am to 8 pm Monday through Thursday, 6 am to 6 pm on Fridays and 6 am to 5 pm on Saturdays. The sales showroom is open from9 am to 9 pm Monday through Thursday, 9 am to 6 pm on Fridays and 9 am to 5 pm on Saturdays. Volkswagen’s grand vision is to become the world’s largest automaker by 2018 and they are well on their way. They just have to look at their successful retailers for inspiration and experience. Myers Volkswagen has been number one in the greater Ottawa region since they opened in 2010. Call them at 613 592 8484 for sales or 613 596 8689 for service or log onto www.myersvw.com to find out how you can be number one on your roads in a Myers Volkswagen.

JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND

Knights of Columbus Holy Redeemer Council members Larry Carroll and Tom Quinn present a cheque for $1,500 to Rev. Fred Demaray and Rev. J. Hugh O’Donnell, with Multifaith Housing Initiative.

Multifaith Housing aims to open new units Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - An Ottawa charity received a helping hand toward its goal to open 25 new housing units for those in need. Multifaith Housing Initiative received a donation of $1,500 from the Knights of Columbus Holy Redeemer Council on July 3, raised from the Knights annual Rita Maheral Memorial Charity Golf Tournament held in May. The money will go towards Multifaith’s fundraising campaign, A Place to Call Home, to raise $500,000 over a three-year period to provide an additional 25 to 30 low-cost rental units. “There is a very serious (housing) crisis,” said Rev. J. Hugh O’Donnell, a deacon at St. Isidore Roman Catholic Parish. “We are addressing the needs here.” Multifaith is made up of people of various beliefs and religions in Ottawa and helps people “who are homeless or at risk of homelessness by providing and promoting well maintained, affordable, rental housing in a safe and neighbourly environment,” according to its website. Currently, Multifaith has three properties with a total of 41 units in Ottawa: Blake House in Va-

nier, Kent House in Centretown, and Somerset Gardens downtown. O’Donnell said the city needs 100 to 150 low-cost units in Ottawa to address the housing needs of the homeless or those at risk of homelessness. In Ottawa, an average of 1,200 people spends the night in a shelter. Of that, 260 are families, said O’Donnell, a Carp resident. “Fifteen-hundred children have lived in these shelters for an average of 88 days,” he added. “We’re trying to help our people in need here in Ottawa.” Knights of Columbus golf tournament treasurer Stephen Dulude said part of the Knights’ mission is to give back. “It’s part of our community outreach; contribute back to the community,” said the Bridlewood resident. Multifaith hasn’t found a building yet for the new units but O’Donnell said he’s confident everything will come together. “We’re quite positive about all of this,” he said. “We’re very appreciative of what the Knights did with their golf tournament.” So far, Multifaith has raised $230,000 of its $500,000 goal.

Lions fighting cancer The Barrhaven Lions Club recently presented a cheque for $10,000 to the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation for cancer care. For the past nine years the club has hosted a Mother and Daughter Gala and raised over $85,000 for the Queensway-Carleton Hospital Foundation. Two and three generations of mothers and daughters return each year to the gala to purchase silent auction items, hear a great motivational speaker and just have fun during the evening.

EMC news - Jody and Cory Mitic filmed their Amazing Race audition at a gym in Toronto, climbing ropes and doing pushups. Height, strength or endurance wasn’t a worry for the brothers. “Our biggest concern was I have fake legs,” said Jody, an Orléans resident. “We were confident we’d do well if we got on the show, but that was the biggest worry.” Jody, 36, is a retired military sniper who lost his feet in an explosion while serving in Afghanistan in 2007. While he’d like to be more than the guy with the prosthetic feet, he recognizes it was probably a large part of why he got cast on the show, which has already been filmed and begins to air July 15. “I don’t want to be identified as the guy with the disability, but it is part of my identity,” he said. It meant packing two sets of feet for the filming of the show – walking feet and running blades – depending on what activity they had to do, and extra socks for his limbs. They also had to make sure that no challenges on the show risked one of his prosthetics flying off midway through. In the reality show, teams of two travel across the country, completing challenges along the way. In the American version, the last team to get to each checkpoint is eliminated.

Jody isn’t allowed to answer most questions about his actual time filming the show. “Watch on July 15,” he’ll answer to most questions about the outcome. He wasn’t even allowed to tell friends and most family that he was competing on the show while it was being filmed. Instead, he said he was going on a trip across the country with his brother. “We had our growing pains because we’re both a little alpha,” Jody said. “There might be a few moments where there will be a lot of beeps (over swearing).” Whoever wins the Amazing Race takes home a $500,000 prize. Jody knows how well he did, as the full show has already filmed, but isn’t allowed to say. He hopes it will show other amputees that there are few limits to what you can do after getting prosthetic limbs, and hopes it can connect him with more people who want to push their own limits. “It can be lonely being the guy in the city, or in the room, who had his leg blown off,” he said. “I’d like to get on there and encourage some more people. I’d like to go for a run with another amputee.” Since Jody retired from the military, he’s worked as a motivational speaker, and launched a charity called the Never Quit Foundation. The foundation provides support to amputees, especially emergency responders or military members. The first episode of the Amazing Race airs on July 15 on CTV.

Orléans native Cody Ceci, centre, challenges the puck-carrier during a drill. Ceci was a first-round pick of the Sens in 2012 and seems a step closer to making the NHL team’s roster this year. Being assigned jersey no. 5 instead of no. 38 has to be considered a good sign for the future.
