Poilievre to tackle Senate, electoral reform Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

A centurian marks her big day with friends and family. – Page 26

News - Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre will tackle some of Canada’s most controversial topics now that Prime Minister Stephen Harper has named him Minister of State for Democratic Reform.

Poilievre was one of eight new faces to join Harper’s cabinet on Monday, July 15 in the biggest cabinet shakeup since the Conservatives took power in 2006. As part of his new portfolio, Poilievre, 34, will pick up where Edmonton MP Tim Uppal left off on Senate reform and improvements to the Elections Canada Act. “Not necessarily in that order,” Poilievre soon after the appointment was announced, although he allowed that Senate reform is on the mind of Canadians in the wake of the Senate

expense scandal. “The Senate is a very high profile subject these days. We are committed to reforming it, to make it elected with limited terms. And if that doesn’t happen we want it to be abolished.” Poilievre said the Conservative government has been working towards Senate reform since it was first elected seven years ago, although no legislation has passed the House of Commons to that effect, even though the government has held a majority of seats since the 2011 elecetion. “The nature of the Senate is in part a

question for the Constitution and even a majority government can’t amend the Constitution by itself,” Poilievre said. The government has asked the Supreme Court to clarify exactly what powers the government has to reform the Senate; answers which Poilievre expects to receive by the end of 2014. “I think the Supreme Court reference will be a seminal event in the revolution of the Senate. It will inform Parliament about what is possible.”

Innes Road workers kicking inmates: report Ottawa centre third in complaints in ombudsman’s report Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Last month, the provincial ombudsman criticized Ontario’s corrections facilities, including the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre, for excessive use of force in a report. The report released June 11 said the five institutions examined were selected based on their high rate of complaints, including the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre. The investigation was launched because of the number of complaints province wide about guards using excessive force, and then trying to cover it up. It looked at cases from Jan. 1, 2010 until Jan. 1 of this year. The Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre was third for all complaints in the Ontario correctional system, says the Ontario ombudsman’s annual report. The Central North Correctional Centre in Penetanguishene and Central East Correctional Centre in Lindsay both had more than 500 complaints, ranking in first and second place. The Innes Road facility logged 398 complaints in the 2012-13 year. The June report addressed some of the complaints. “Correctional staff need the ability to exercise force to restrain inmates from harming themselves or others, and to manage the prison population,â€? ombudsman AndrĂŠ Marin wrote in the report. “However, punching, slapping, kicking, and other physical contact used against an inmate who is under control and does not present a threat is inexcusable and morally repugnant.â€? Ottawa-Carleton was also one of the four sites toured by staff before preparing the report, which resulted in 45 recommendations for the provincial corrections system. OTTAWA EXAMPLES CITED

Two cases were cited from the Innes Road facility, both under pseudonyms: Colin and Daniel. A disturbing image of Colin with his face swollen and bloody, accompanied the report. The inmate, who had a brain injury in a car accident as a child, allegedly was thrown and kicked by several officers, one of whom was eventually criminally charged for the assault. Colin had to be admitted to the hospital and referred to a neurologist with swelling be-

One staff member was charged with assault following the incident. tween his brain and scalp, and multiple cuts and gashes to his face. The staff report said Colin got combative when they entered to collect his meal tray, and it escalated to Colin trying to assault the officer, and the officers using physical force to restrain him. The correctional investigation and security unit investigated the incident after the reports didn’t seem to add up, given the severity of Colin’s injuries. That investigation found that one or two officers weren’t in his cell to collect his meal tray, but to speak about an earlier verbal exchange. There was a scuffle, and he was restrained. Several of the officers admitted that Colin was calm when he was then “brutally assaulted.â€? “While Colin lay face down on the floor with his hands cuffed behind his back and his ankles shackled, an officer who had joined in the fray, placed his hands on two of his colleagues for leverage, and delivered two or three kicks to Colin’s head and upper torso,â€? the report said. One officer said one of his co-workers kicked Colin the back of the head. That resulted in his head splitting open, “and blood started spilling out from underneath him. I was shocked, I was stunned. I stood there, and the same officer booted him‌ for the second time‌ people were walking away – that’s

“I was shocked, I was stunned. I stood there, and the same officer booted him‌ for the second time.â€? “THE CODEâ€? PROVINCIAL INVESTIGATION

happening. Staff said he was put on the floor, with his face down and had to be restrained. Daniel said he didn’t disobey any orders from staff but was still struck in the head. After Daniel made a complaint, police were contacted and a nurse recorded bruising behind his ear. But it took a year for any more action to be taken – and that was after the ombudsman received the referral. The report said officers could not provide a

plausible explanation for his injuries, and expressed concern that his complaint was never addressed. The reports the ombudsman’s staff did receive were delayed and inaccurate. Video can help determine what happened when an inmate’s word contradicts staff. Ottawa-Carleton was again used as the example, citing an April 2010 incident when an officer “punched an inmate without provocation before pushing him into his cell.� His colleague, who said he saw the incident take place, said his co-worker was acting in self-defence – but the video showed that he wasn’t watching the area when the inmate got punched. RATIOS OFF

The ombudsman heard from staff that overcrowding and understaffing aggravated the problems, and made it tough for staff to do their jobs without a significant amount of stress. But there is still an underlying code that stops officers from reporting inappropriate conduct by their peers. The first recommendation was issuing a clear message that a “code of silence� will not be tolerated anymore. It also addressed the use of force, training new employees, reporting the use of force and investigating complaints. As of January 2013, there was “an extensive backlog� of cases waiting for local investigation at the Ottawa facility on Innes Road.

when I knew it was bad.� The officers who witnessed the assault originally failed to report it because of a generally understood “code of silence� between staff at correctional facilities, the report stated. The east-end facility was also home to another example, when a man who the report called Daniel, was assaulted on the same day as Colin. Daniel was placed in a segregation cell while a massive relocation of inmates was

Reform or abolish Senate: Poilievre Continued from page 1

The most recent Senate reform legislation introduced in 2011 called for elected senators and limited nine-year terms. Poilievre said Harper has tried to get around the Constitution’s senator appointment conventions by honouring election results if a province decides to hold Senate elections in conjunction with provincial or municipal votes.

We’re listening to Canadians to see how best we can protect our electoral system MP PIERRE POILIEVRE

“So far only one province has taken us up on that offer, and that’s Alberta,� he said. Poilievre was hesitant to expand on Elections Canada reforms since no legislation has been brought forward. “We’re listening to Canadians to see how best we can protect our electoral system,� he said. Poilievre does know he will

oversee the planned boundary changes for ridings across the country, which will likely include a new riding in southwest Ottawa to account for rising populations in Barrhaven and Kanata. SEATS CHANGE

“We have an elections body that has put together a revised version with dozens of new seats and that will change the political make-up in this country and reect the population growth,â€? he said. Despite an exciting day on Parliament Hill, Poilievre said he was humbled to take on his new role. “I come from an average Canadian neighbourhood, a middle class community, son of two teachers,â€? he said. “For me it’s just exciting that anyone who works hard and believes in a cause can have the opportunity to contribute.â€? The MP for the south end of Ottawa, who has served the Nepean-Carleton riding for nine years, also said his constituents won’t be forgotten. “I intend to continue to be a very strong presence in the community,â€? Poilievre said. “I’m going to be door knocking a lot this summer and attending a lot of events. So constituents will see me doing the same kind of work.â€?

Richmond Underground gets councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK City vows to work with NCC to get its approval

Hydro Ottawa helps rebuild Pullen Avenue Group Home

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

On July 16th, a group of Hydro Ottawa powerline maintainers and cable jointers generously lent their time and talents to connect the electrical service to the rebuilt Pullen Avenue Group Home, a 10-unit home for people with disabilities. Hydro Ottawa donated the use of their equipment, which included multiple vehicles, while its employees promptly answered the call to volunteer their time for this great cause.

An artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sketch shows a cross-section of tunnel along the proposed western LRT line. chairman Russell Mills and the media. Watson assured Mills the city will continue to work with the NCC on the route. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fully appreciate and understand that the NCC is in a position to establish conditions,â&#x20AC;? Watson wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are confident that we have identified a budget and an approach that can accommodate every aspect of the NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion as design progresses.â&#x20AC;? City staff has already proposed changes aimed at pleasing the NCC that will inflate the bill by $80 million. The budget for the project, which now stands at $980 million, cannot stand to get any larger or it will impact the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to tackle other transit projects on its list, said city treasurer Marion Simulik. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time we whittle a dollar away, it eats into that $4 billion envelope for rail till 

News - Residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ire over the proposed Richmond Underground light-rail route was nowhere to be seen as city council unanimously approved the plan on July 17. Despite hearing from a chorus of unhappy residents in a day-long transportation committee meeting two weeks before, councillors approved the route with no debate at the council meeting. Approving a route for the future extension of light rail west of Tunneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pasture means the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chosen Richmond Underground route is close to becoming enshrined in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transportation master plan. The route would start at Tunneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Station and run along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway in a trench for approximately 500 metres and traverses Rochester Field before dipping underground under Richmond Road for 700 m. Council has committed to looking at the cost and feasibility of burying that remaining 500 m through the field â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something the National Capital Commission, which owns the land, has said is essential if the city wants its blessing. The route would require the NCC to grant the city access to about a kilometre of its land along the parkway and the NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board has twice voted against the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to run trains â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even in a trench â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along the road. The NCC issued a terse news release shortly after councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote to re-iterate that the federal agency has the final say over how its land along the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway will be used. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Notwithstanding todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision by Ottawa city council of the Richmond Underground as the preferred corridor for the light rail, the decision as whether to build or not on federal lands in this corridor will remain with the National Capital Commission board of directors,â&#x20AC;? the news release reads. The NCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board will focus on two key concerns when it looks to make a decision, the news release continues: unimpeded, continuous access to the land along the Ottawa River and minimal visual impact on the landscape quality and the experience of people who go there. Half an hour later, Mayor Jim Watson responded in an open letter sent to NCC board

2031,â&#x20AC;? said Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess. During a transportation committee meeting on July 5, deputy city manager Nancy Schepers said staff has not done a â&#x20AC;&#x153;deep enough analysisâ&#x20AC;? to come up with a price tag for burying the remaining 500 m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d propose to do in the next phase,â&#x20AC;? she said. Schepers did say there is a significant difference in cost between keeping the rail line above ground or burying it. Per kilometre, it costs approximately $40 to 60 million to build on the surface, but that number balloons to $100 to 150 million per kilometre for underground rail. The line wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin construction until 2017 or 2018. It would carry 1,300 passengers in each direction during the peak hour by 2031.

O

nce again, city council has come up with a politically-savvy solution to the question of where to build a casino: build two of them. Last week, council members were slapping each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backs and tweeting merrily after they agreed to ask the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation for permission to build two gaming facilities in Ottawa. Never mind that the OLG has already denied such a request before. The provincial gaming authority has said numerous times that Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;zoneâ&#x20AC;? can only accommodate one casino. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote is little more than an attempt to assuage the complaints from Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk, who is hoping to bring a gaming facility to Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata. If the OLG turns down Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for two casinos, the city will move ahead with its default location: the racetrack. This marvelous sleight of hand highlights the fact the casinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location is a purely political decision made before any studies, consultation or rational debate has taken place. Earlier this month, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance committee approved sole sourcing the casino, located at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway, a motion proposed and pushed by Mayor Jim Watson. Never mind that the

mayor was flip-flopping on his previous promise to make the selection process an open competition. This was a decision based on political pressure. Lobby groups and supporters of the racetrack made their preference known, likely highlighting the 2014 municipal election date on Watsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calendar. Melnyk wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly thrilled with the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion. Lawyer in tow, he showed up at the finance committee meeting and blasted council for not providing a level playing field for bids, suggesting the process wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly legal. An independent legal review indicated it is legal. It certainly isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t how council has conducted business in the past. Usually, the city allows an open bidding process and holds public consultations to figure out if residents want a proposed building/business in the first place. But why destroy a perfectly sound political decision with the principles of good decision making and democratic tradition? The mayor has dealt himself a winning hand, getting council to approve a plan that pleases everyone, yet has small chance of approval. We can only admire the shuffling ability of the mayor, who, like an experienced card shark has deftly maneuvered council to approve his motion. Two casinos? Now you see it, soon you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.

A place where you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be an expert

H

ereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scene from a cottage weekend. See if it seems familiar to you. Six guys, probably late teens, are on one of those pontoon boats. A pontoon boat is notoriously hard to manouevre, especially in a wind, and these guys are fishing off it. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get through a narrow opening between two islands. The opening is shallow and the bottom is covered with large boulders. The boat is trying to find its way through. To make matters more interesting, at least one of the anglers has caught bottom. So theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to avoid the boulders, get through the opening and also get the guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lure off the bottom. One of the guys stands in the bow, watching for rocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop!â&#x20AC;? he yells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reverse! Reverse!â&#x20AC;? The boat reverses, clumsily. Somehow the snagged hook is freed and the pontoon boat backs out of the narrow passage and safely into open water. Somehow the proverb: â&#x20AC;&#x153;God helps drunks and little children,â&#x20AC;? springs to mind, except that these guys werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t little and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be drunks either. Someone called out to them from the shore to ask how they were doing and they held up

a half dozen or so quite good-sized pickerel that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d somehow managed to catch off this pontoon boat that they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t steer very well. They were having the time of their lives and it served as a reminder of one of the great things about life at the lake in a Canadian summer: You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be good at it to enjoy it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious when you think about it. Watch men manhandling chunks of meat around a barbecue. Watch anyone manhandling a golf ball around a cottage country golf course. Watch the paddling and kayaking styles of the people who pass by the dock. In most of these activities, and with most people, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no great skill there, but there is a large amount of

enjoyment. What a relief it is, after the exacting demands of the city, to get to a place where it really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how much skill you have. Sure, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to be good at something. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also nice when it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter all that much. Beside a lake, there are no bosses, no alarm clocks, no buses to run after. Mastery of software does not enter into your existence. There are no updates to anything. There is no such thing as a cc, never mind a blind cc. There is no traffic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; once you get there. There is very little in the way of self-improvement. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that at some lakes, children are offered lessons in this or that, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long and the kids might learn something they might be able to teach you. Not that it matters if you learn it all that well. The demands of cottage life are quite rudimentary. You have to be able to tolerate the noise children make. You have to be patient and learn to read a story out loud several times in a row. You have to be the kind of person dogs like. Knowing a few simple card games comes in handy. There are some basic safety things you have to learn, but they are mostly common sense. Even driving a boat, while not

all that easy, can be accomplished by a nonexpert, because the margin of error on a lake is wider than on a city street. Along the way, you find and settle into the activities at which you can be an expert, that you might have forgotten over the year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taking a nap, telling jokes, eating gooey desserts, singing off-key, walking through the woods, exaggerating, unloading a boat, using a flyswatter and figuring out whodunit. Easy. The rest of it is eating and sleeping, getting along with people and knowing when to wear a hat.

We can handle beer, wine in stores To the editor,

After an hour of mowing my lawn at the end of a warm afternoon I poured myself a tall glass of cold refreshing beer. Unfortunately it was the last one on hand. To restock Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to drive 12 kilometres to Rockland or 15 kilometres to Orleans to a Beer Store. So it was with some dismay later to read Charles Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s panning of why beer and wine should not be sold in corner stores. His Funny Town column pokes a little humour at his fellow journalists pretending to be serious drinkers wanting more access to it. But then he points out the indecision of government ministers on this issue. He suggests that our provincial government needs to continue to keep its strict control and not let us get out of hand. He says employees of Beer Stores are well trained and know when â&#x20AC;&#x153;those of us have had more than enough in an evening.â&#x20AC;? If we take him seriously here his column raises a few questions: â&#x20AC;˘ Do Beer Stores create better control of beer consumption in Ontario than in other parts of Canada and the U.S.? â&#x20AC;˘ Does Ontario have people with fewer drinking problems than elsewhere because of fewer beer outlets? â&#x20AC;˘ Is beer consumption among teens a problem that is handled better in Ontario than elsewhere with its Beer Stores? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have statistics but I think not. Mr. Gordon states that it is difďŹ cult to see where the greater good is by allowing its sale in local corner stores. For me the greater good is to allow family-owned corner stores to have the legal right to sell or not sell beer and wine as part of their business. For me the greater good is to have a free and open society where young people are taught at home, and to some extent at school, to choose food and drink wisely and consume them in moderation. In recognizing the realities of life in the 21st century itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to acknowledge that beer and wine are mild forms of alcohol that most people consume in moderation at mealtime and in numerous social settings. It might not do much for the heart but it has been known on many occasions to raise oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirits. It should be available on corner store shelves as much as tea, coffee or soft drinks. Robert (Bob) Hawley Cumberland

Addiction is the devil inside

I

was very saddened to hear of the death of Glee actor Cory Monteith earlier this month. That he died of a heroin and alcohol overdose made his death even more tragic. Drug addiction -- alcohol, tobacco, prescription or street drugs -- is a powerful demon. Addiction is something that affects most of us, either personally, or because we have friends or family that struggle with addiction. Despite this, many of us fail to sympathize with addicts. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the homeless person wandering the street, begging for change to help him get his next ďŹ x, or the successful, middle-aged, middle-class woman secretly downing a bottle of wine each night, we have little understanding of addiction and even less sympathy for the addict. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they just get help?â&#x20AC;? Anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever dealt with

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse

addiction, however, can relate to the old Christian adage, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The closer you are to God, the harder the Devil works to tempt you.â&#x20AC;? Addiction is a lot like that. For Monteith, this seems to be a harrowing reality. Not only was the actor fresh out of rehabilitation, but he died on the night he had dinner with the co-founder of Project Limelight. Monteith was planning to support the theatre program for children in Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Downtown Eastside, best known as the poorest postal code in Canada. Myself, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a life-long struggle with nicotine. I grew up in a smoking household and started smoking at the ridiculously young

age of 13; this, despite spending most of my childhood begging my relatives to quit. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve quit many times over my adult life, always eventually returning to the comfort, satisfaction and inspiration that only cigarettes seem to provide. For those who are fortunate enough to have escaped addiction, it may seem there are lots of supports available to addicts. This is far from true. Young people, in particular, face up to two yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; waiting time for psychological services in Ontario. As a result, too much pressure is put on family doctors and others on the frontline, who have neither the training nor resources to support addicts. For those, like me, who have struggled on and off with a nicotine addiction, it often comes down to individual resources and the ability to resist evil temptation in the longer term. Unfortunately, for those

addicted to equally powerful street or prescription drugs, the same is frequently true. At the height of a successful career, at the beautiful age of 31, ready to give back to his community as a mentor, Monteith, a wealthy celebrity and anti-drug crusader, took heroin and died. It seems unfathomable at a time when Monteith was, to use my previous metaphor, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as close to Godâ&#x20AC;? as he could get. Unfortunately, the devil was working pretty hard that night. A recent fundraising success in Ottawa is perhaps a great example of how we can work collectively to take the pressure off frontline medical workers and dedicate more to treatment and rehabilitation. Last year, a local fundraiser spearheaded by former police chief, (now Senator), Vern White, raised $2.25 million to build a 30-bed facility at the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre for youth addicts. White rated the fundraiser as one of the biggest successes in his 30 years as a police ofďŹ cer. Given how close the devil resides in all of us, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to agree.

BRIDGING COMMUNITIES Ward 22 Update

Connected to your community

The monster fish that was nearly lunch Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean GUS ESTE PARK COMMEMORATIVE NAMING CEREMONY I was pleased to help celebrate a recent park naming in our ward in honour of life-long community volunteer and local Korean War veteran Mr. Gus Este. Mr. Este is a decorated War Veteran who served as a medic in the Korean War and completed 33 years of military service in 1987. Mr. Este has long 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. Alongside Mayor Watson, the Honourable Pierre Poilievre, his Excellency Ambassador Cho of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to Canada, members of the community, and numerous family and friends Mr. Este helped unveil his new park sign on July 19th at the park on Brookstone Street in Barrhaven. I was honoured to help Gus celebrate this amazing achievement and look forward to Gus Este Park being enjoyed by the members of this community for many years to come. I again offer my congratulations to Mr. Este for this very well deserved honour! STRANDHERD-ARMSTRONG BRIDGE UPDATE As many residents have recently noticed, the next phase of the StrandherdArmstrong Bridge construction which involves positioning and launching of the bridge across the Rideau River has begun. The positioning was a gradual process to ensure that this large structure was placed securely and safely into its final position. The bridge was pulled across the river on rail cars, using jacks anchored on the west side, to allow the bridge structure to roll along the launch trusses. The bridge was then pulled using a strand jack and cable system. After a full day of moving the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge across the Rideau River along temporary rail beds, the bridge reached its destination on Friday, July 12th. The bridge structure travelled a total 140m from start to finish over the two day phase. Now that the bridge rests above its final position, there remains a lot of work to do before it is connected to the anchors on each side of the Rideau River. After removing the rail cars and all temporary materials used for the launching operation, the structure will be slowly lowered into its final position and welded to the last arch sections that will connect the bridge to the ground. This phase will take a number of weeks to complete. Ballast walls and approaches to the bridge will be constructed, as well as storm water sewers required for drainage. Also formwork and rebar for the deck and sidewalks will commence, pouring the concrete deck and sidewalks, barriers walls and railings, electrical work, expansion joints waterproofing and asphalt. There is also significant road work to be done, including the installation of lighting and traffic signals. The planned completion date is September 2014. Interested residents are encouraged to continue watch the progress from the safety of their homes, via the online camera link on my website at www. SteveDesroches.ca. In addition, updates will continue to be posted to my website on this important infrastructure project. City engineers continue to work very close to the contractor to ensure all opportunities to accelerate the work continue to be explored. The City will also continue to work with Parks Canada to ensure recreational boaters continue to have safe passage near the bridge site. I am pleased that the positioning of the bridge structure was successful and that progress is being made on the project. I look forward to the completion of each and every phase of the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge project. CARLETON LODGE ANNUAL BARBEQUE It was a pleasure to visit with residents and their families at the Carleton Lodge Annual Barbeque this past week. I would like to thank Mary Zion for hosting such a fantastic event. Thank you as well to all the volunteers who helped out. It was a wonderful evening spent with family and friends.

I would like to take the time to congratulate local Nepean-Carleton MP, the Honourable Pierre Poilievre on his recent appointment as Minister of State (Democratic Reform) in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Cabinet. I wish Minister Poilievre the best of luck in his new position.

Lifestyle - Get the kids out of the river, there’s a monster lurking. Steven Grail is no stranger to catching big fish. With 50-plus years of fishing in and around the Ottawa, Grail’s caught beauties: dozens of muskie, more pike, and a bunch of bass. One a super fatty. You name it and he’s landed it. He’s even nabbed barracuda in Mexico – they turn every colour of the rainbow when you pull them out – and other beasts in other countries. He knows fishing. So when on May 31 at around 8 p.m. as the light began to fade, he didn’t think much at first of the jiggling on his 78-inch rod with 12pound test line. But what transpired over the course of the next hour, in four-foot water, proved to be his finest hour on the Ottawa. It happened at a cottage not too far from his hometown of Arnprior. Us-

DEREK DUNN Valley Fish Tales ing a five-inch Rapala lure with no leader, Grail said the pike he caught jumped out of the water about 10 times, sometimes clearing it by four feet. It ran several times for more than 200 feet. “It was the best fight I’ve ever had in my life,” he said of the pike that weighed in at between 30 and 40 pounds. “I put him back. I already have a pike on my wall.” He knows it wasn’t a muskie. The stubbed nose, brown in colour, char-

acteristic pores – it all pointed to a northerner. He beached it after 9 p.m. and because the mosquitoes were so bad he tied it to part of the dock until morning. This is where the story gets really interesting. He returned in daylight to check out the prisoner. “It was snapping at me like an alligator,” he said. “When its mouth opened you could easily drop a soccer ball into it.” That’s when he noticed, while struggling to lift the thing out of the water - the fish slapping the water like a beaver’s tail - that it had a bite mark down near its tail. The teeth marks formed a semi circle eight inches wide. Eight. Something out there tried to eat a 35-pound pike. Now that’s nasty. Setting the scene Joe Banks’ favourite fishing story isn’t about landing a killer pike or any other fish. His is more on the big picture level. It’s about the topography of one of his favourite spots to dip a canoe in the river. A hidden gem along the mighty Ottawa is a conservation area known as Morris Island. Located near the village of Fitzroy Harbour, this 47 hectare site consists of forested woodlands and wetlands that will appeal to nature enthusiasts of all ages. Banks, now a journalism instructor at Algonquin College, recalls dipping a canoe in a spot he calls Snye River, or the South Ottawa. This is back in 1984 before he was a reporter at the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide and while the editor of Almonte’s newspaper. “I happened to be the president of the Almonte Fish and Game Club at the time,” he said. “I went with (a) good reader-friend of mine, Neil MacArthur. Very few people knew about this place. We caught about 30 large mouth bass that day. We ran out of room on our stringer.” The two caught progressively larger fish as the day wore on. They used smallish silver-and-black lures. Little guys were released and bigger ones gilled to the stringer. But for Banks, the fishing was the sideshow. He was more struck and impressed by the geography and wildlife. It was the first time he saw a gar pike, sunning itself in shallow water as they are prone to do. He was even spooked by a huge water snake. Regal limestone, the lazy river meandering around bends, the stately trees: it was a memory he kept for many years until his return a five summers ago. Banks, who lives in Osgoode, said the river has grown in over the years and the water’s a little lower, but remains a stunningly beautiful place. SHARE YOUR STORY

Convicted money launderer contributed to councillor’s campaign Allan Hubley won’t comment on donation Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News - A criminal now serving time in a U.S. prison donated funds to an Ottawa city council candidate in 2010. Nathan Jacobson is a prominent

businessman, philanthropist, Conservative party insider and convicted money launderer. In June he agreed to enter custody and serve his sentence in California after pleading guilty to money laundering on May 7, 2008. He remained free to travel in exchange for helping authorities with the investigation. While his plea was sealed since that time, it didn’t stop him from contributing to various political campaigns, including that of Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley in the

sissippi Mills. Hubley said recently his intent is to run municipally again in 2014.

2010 election. Jacobson, who is from Toronto, did not contribute to any other Ottawa municipal candidates. Hubley refused to comment on whether he knew about Jacobson’s money laundering when he accepted the maximum donation of $750, or whether or not he intends to return the money. Observers suspect Hubley might run for the Conservatives in 2015 if 74-year-old Gordon O’Connor – recently shuffled out of cabinet – steps aside in the riding of Carleton-Mis-

SCANDALS

When it comes to convicted criminals and people caught up in highprofile scandals contributing to an individual’s campaign, seasoned politicians tend to stand clear. “Most politicians don’t want to be tainted by the misadventures of their contributors,” said Alex Cul-

len, a former Ottawa councillor and nominated Ontario NDP candidate. “It doesn’t make for smart politics. It just raises questions.” Carleton University’s Christopher Waddell, an elections expert, said the public will decide if the company a politician keeps is a help or hindrance. “It’s important to know who is donating to these campaigns,” Waddell said. “Whether that makes a difference or not to voters – I don’t know. You’ll have to ask them.”

Algonquin expands teaching to Saudi Arabia News - Having won an international bid to operate a new English language campus in Saudi Arabia, Algonquin College will welcome its first cohort of Jazan students this September. The campus, to be located in the city of Jazan, Saudi Arabia, will operate in a public-private partnership with Saudi Arabia’s equivalent of Ontario’s Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. At capacity, the campus is expected to be home to 2,000 students and generate annual revenues of more than $25 million. The new campus will offer 10 programs in accounting, marketing, electrical engineering technician, mechanical technician, motive

ence in Saudi Arabia, having provided the government run Jazan Economic City Polytechnic with both curriculum and faculty. This new partnership will rename the existing campus the Algonquin Jazan College of Excellence and see Algonquin manage all campus operations including staff and student recruitment, program development and delivery, quality assessment, college services, and facilities maintenance. The college will be male-only. Algonquin College’s separate bid for a female-only college was unsuccessful though there are four female campuses opening in Saudi Arabia this fall. “Opening the new campus in

power technician, truck and coach technician, architectural technician, construction engineering technician, facilities technician, and heating, refrigeration and air conditioning technician. In addition, the college will offer a foundation year focused on English competency and study skills. The Saudi government is investing more than $1 billion in a new polytechnic education model. Signing contracts with a group of leading institutions, each with a history of delivering high quality hands-on, applied education and training, the 110,000 student pilot, if successful, is expected to be expanded to 450,000 students. Algonquin has previous experi-

Saudi Arabia is a significant milestone for Algonquin and will showcase to the world the quality of the Ontario education system,” said Algonquin president Kent MacDonald in a press release. “Ontario is a world education leader and Algonquin is proud to be on the cutting edge of Canadian institutions connecting countries and students around the world with our unique approach to polytechnic training.” Algonquin joins four other international institutions, including TQ/Pearson (U.K.), Laureate International (U.S.), Mondragon (Spain), and Nescott (U.K.), which were selected to manage 10 colleges as part of the Saudi Arabian Colleges of

Excellence pilot program. Once finalized, Saudi Arabia will join a growing list of countries where students can take an on-campus Algonquin College program, which currently includes China, India and Montenegro. Kuwait is expected to join that list in 2014. The college also attracts more than 1,000 international students to its Ontario campuses each year. A representative of the Saudi Technical and Vocational Training Corporation did not return a request for comment regarding how many student spaces administered across Saudi Arabia are designated male only, and how many are female only, and if the government is dealing with any inequities.

heard about the Dave Smith Youth and Treatment Centre when he was at church one day and decided it was all he needed to decide to help out. The orders added up and when the restaurant welcomed founder Dave Smith and board member Stephen McGill to accept the cheque, Smith said he was overwhelmed by the amount Waltham presented to them. The money means a lot to the centre, which is currently working at raising $5 million to build a permanent facility in Carp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask the families of the youth who come for a dime and the government wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give us any money for the buildings,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people make this kind of investment, locally, the money stays here and this donation, at this time, was unbelievable.â&#x20AC;? The centre helps young people aged 13-21 who are battling drug and alcohol addiction. It began, Smith said, 23 years ago with a day-treatment centre on Bronson Avenue and has since expanded to a 10-bed residential facility in Carp and a 14-bed residential facility in Carleton Place. The new building would feature 30 beds in one location. Smith said the new location, which would replace the existing two, would give counselors currently travelling between the different locations more time with clients. McGill said the board has so far raised $700,000 for the new building and the plan is to raise the remainder and begin construction in the next two to three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The donation is critical to us operating,â&#x20AC;? McGill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Substance abuse is an issue amongst youth and really touches every corner of our community, they literally come from every family, every circumstance in Ottawa and the fact that we can offer a place to go is important.â&#x20AC;? Waltham said the shop is going to continue to donate to the centre, but will soon put their efforts towards another local charity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are thinking of expanding to different charities, there are lots of small charities that need help,â&#x20AC;? he said.

News - When Janice VandenTillaart found out she was cancer-free, there was only one thing she wanted to do: ride a 100kilometre race to help raise awareness and money for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. VandenTillaart got the news she was cancer-free in December 2012 and since that day she has been training for Ride the Rideau on Sept. 7. Setting up a team with family members and friends called Tour de Cure, the group needs to raise $7,000 to compete. So far they have raised $6,418 for the cause and on July 7 VandenTillaart’s local spa, The Pedicure Shop in Manotick Station, decided to offer a helping hand by offering pedicures, manicures and other services with the cost donated to VandenTillaart’s team. “She is a great client and when she said she was going to participate in the ride, I wanted to help,” said José-Lucie Bastien, owner of The Pedicure Shop. Bastien said a close family member suffered from cancer and she always wanted to give back to cancer research. “I have donated throughout the years, but never had a chance to do something like this,” Bastien said. She added that in her business she has encounters many clients who suffer from different sicknesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. “In the few short years I have come to know Janice she has bravely fought this dis-

ease and continues to be strong in her outlook on life,” Bastien said. Diagnosed with endometrial cancer in January 2012, VandenTillaart said since she began chemo therapy she started to loose the feeling in her hands and toes. So she became a regular customer at the Pedicure Shop for massages and pedicures to help keep feeling in her toes. “José has been so helpful,” VandenTillaart said. “It’s been her positive attitude, I found it’s been really good for me. And she is so good with the therapy for me. She really knows her stuff.” To help with her circulation, she began knitting scarves, chemo hats and yoga mats, giving them away to others she met in the Ottawa Hospital, or selling them at the Rideau Curling Club to help raise money for the foundation. “To me it’s better to have something to sell then to simply ask for money,” she said. The scarves have been one of the biggest means for VandenTillaart’s fundraising. The pedicure shop owner is the only local shop that VandenTillaart’s scarves are for sale. The fundraiser got off to a wet start, but that didn’t stop people from coming out and getting their toes and nails prettied up for the cause. The day also included a barbecue, pedicures, manicures, items for sale all to help raise funds to help support the team’s bike race. Food was donated by MacKinnon’s Foodland. The Ottawa-to-Merrickville bike tour

offers two ride options this year, a 100-km route which VandenTillaart is doing, and a new 50-km route. “This year, we expanded our ride to include a 50-km option in addition to our traditional 100-km route,” said Michelle van Vliet, communications director at the foundation. “We did this to allow more people to participate and make an impact on the fight against cancer. While it is true you never forget how to ride a bike, many people we spoke to about getting involved were just too intimidated about training for a 100-km ride.” Van Vliet said currently there are 50 people registered in the 50-km option and 593 people registered in the 100-km route. Both distances require the same fundraising commitment of $1,500. In the four years the fundraiser has been in operation, it has raised $4.4 million for the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. Due to chemo last year, VandenTillaart was unable to participate but she did attend the event to help volunteer at the finish line. VandenTillaart said she is nervous for the 100-km ride but is also very excited about the event and has been training since early January. After what is promised to be a hearty breakfast the ride begins at the Ernst and Young Centre and runs along the Rideau River to downtown Merrickville-Wolford. Those who participate in the 50-km will be driven the other 50 to meet up with the other participants. For more information about the ride, to donate to VandenTillaart’s team or any team visit ridetherideau.ca.

Greening Lansdowne ‘We’re actually putting the park back in Lansdowne Park,’ said Mayor Jim Watson as he hopped aboard a drilling machine to chip away at the concrete that is a ‘symbol of the past’ for the park. The 7.3-hectare urban park at Lansdowne will cost $32.2-million to build and it will be open and mostly complete by next summer. In addition to a large lawn and 20 event spaces, the park will feature a children’s play area and water feature, a refrigerated outdoor ice rink and an orchard producing edible apples. Overall, the park will increase the amount of green space at Lansdowne threefold by adding four times as many trees. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko joked that the urban park portion is the only part of the redevelopment that no one took issue with.

Nepean Kiwanis looks to bigger, better car show Steph Willems Steph.willems@metroland.com

Community - Organizers of the Nepean Kiwanis Charity Car Show are looking to build on previous years’ successes. Scheduled for Aug. 17, the fourth annual show will once again take over the vast Bells Corners Loblaws parking lot at the corner of Robertson Road and Moodie Drive, with classic vehicles converging from across the National Capital Region. This year’s recipient of car show proceeds will be the Nepean Rideau Osgoode Community Resource Centre. “Last year we saw about 170 vehicles and a good number of people,” said Kiwanian Gord Clark. “We’re hoping for a decent turnout – numbers have gone up substantially from our first two years.” Clark said fellow Kiwanians are spreading

the word while attending other Ottawa-area car shows. Classic car owners looking to show off their rides can show up and register on site for a $10 fee. Dash plaques will be provided, and goodie bags and door prizes will be available, along with a 50/50 draw. Trophies will be handed out following judging. Residents looking to take in the sight of classic sheet metal can also enjoy onsite live music and a barbecue. The Nepean Kiwanis have enjoyed lots of local business support since forming the charity event. Clark said organizers have brought on several new sponsors this year, including Myers Hyundai, which will bring a display of several of the brand’s sportier models. A full list of sponsors, as well as a schedule and information for participants can be found at www.nepeankiwanis.com. The club is still looking for more sponsors, who can sign on by calling Roberto Mirabelli at 613-852-0599.

City pushes Arts Court plan despite funding rejection Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city pushed forward with plans to redevelop Arts Court last week despite the federal government rejecting its request for $9 million needed to build the project. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he found out the feds tossed out the funding request by reading an Ottawa Citizen story about the letter, which was sent to deputy city manager Steve Kanellakos on July 9. “I’m disappointed because we’ve asked for $9 million. To be brutally honest, we didn’t expect $9 million, but we expected something,” Fleury said. “To turn around and say ‘Ottawa, don’t come to the feds for all your priorities’ – we’re not.” The project is still listed at the top priority in the city’s arts, culture and heritage action plan and it’s the only request the city made under the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund more than a year ago, Fleury said. The letter from Marie Moliner, regional executive director of Canadian Heritage, says that the city’s $9-million request amounts to a third of the total annual budget for that nationwide fund. Fleury, Mayor Jim Watson and city staff were set to discuss next steps and strategies for re-opening the funding discussion. “This project needs to happen, but I don’t know at this point,” Fleury said. “It leaves me with a lot of questions, a lot of doubt. I’m still confident that in the end we’ll find some way of getting in done – maybe not in the same timeline.” Those questions went unanswered even as the city’s planning committee was asked to support rezoning the site to pave the way for the future privatepublic partnership redevelopment. The committee unanimously approved that rezoning, including permitting a 23-storey tower at the corner of Waller and Daly streets, on July 16. The city is hoping to make $3.5 million to put towards the project by selling the air rights for that tower, which could become a hotel, condo tower or offices, depending on a proposal from an interested private builder. DENSITY

A couple residents of a neighbouring Claridge condo tower spoke to the committee to warn them against adding more people into an area that’s already packed with people and noisy trucks. “You guys don’t understand…” an emotional Graham Gleddie shouted at the committee. “It’s a hellish nightmare of noise from truck traffic.” Gleddie has been living in his condo for four years and said he didn’t think the city could allow more people to live or sleep in hotel rooms in the area until it removes the heavytruck route from the downtown core. Another resident from that condo building pointed out that there is nothing stopping a private developer from coming back to the city to

SUBMITTED

A 23-storey privately owned tower and a box-shaped Ottawa Art Gallery are the most striking features in the city’s Arts Court expansion. The designs were presented at a public meeting on May 14. ask for an even taller tower. But the city’s planning manager, John Smit, said the city wouldn’t approve that change and the Ontario Municipal Board would probably reject an appeal because it wouldn’t match the city’s planning bible – it’s Official Plan. The $36-million expansion would also include a large addition to the existing Arts Court building – a heritage complex that used to be home to the courthouse and registry office. One of the architects the city hired for the project, Mitchell Hall, said the new Ottawa Art Gallery portion would be a 3,260 square-metre “elegant box” tucked in along the existing north-south stone wall that divides the site. The city is looking at having the gallery building serve as a billboard for art, perhaps using projection or a digital sign, Hall said. A 250-seat screening room, a café and a black-box theatre on Waller Street for the University of Ottawa is also part of the concept. The university will pay $5 million for that portion while the city and other potential partners such as the federal government would cover the remaining $31 million. Open space, seating areas and sculpture courts would buffer the new buildings along Daly, leading into the main entrance, and along Waller. The adjacent former jailhouse is now a privately-owned hostel and not up for redevelopment.

New kit teaches parents how to save a baby’s life News - The Heart and Stroke Foundation has launched the bilingual Infant CPR Anytime personal learning kit to teach parents, families and friends how to use infant CPR to save a baby from choking or cardiac arrest. Accidents and unintentional injuries, including drowning, suffocation and choking, are a leading cause of death among infants and children. These are situations where cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid can help save a child’s life. But too many Canadians don’t know what to do in a cardiac emergency. Shannon Bannen understands first-hand how important it is to know CPR. Just weeks after giving birth to a healthy baby boy, she had to test the limits of her courage to save his life. One morning, seven-week-old Keegan started fussing and was struggling to breathe. Quick to act, Bannen told her husband to call 911. Then, within seconds, Keegan stopped breathing altogether and his heart stopped beating. “That’s when I started CPR on him,” says Bannen. Doctors told Bannen that CPR saved Keegan’s life. “He was never without oxygen as long as I was doing those CPR rescue breaths,” she says. “To look at him today, you’d never guess he experienced any trauma.” Anyone can learn CPR. For more information on the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Infant CPR Anytime kit, or to order ($35 plus taxes and shipping), visit heartandstroke.ca/infantcpr.

News - Whether we like it or not, attending job interviews means looking the part. For the past four years, clothing retailer Moores and its partners have held a used suit drive in order to give job seekers the look to match their ambition and talent. This year, Moores has found an additional partner in the National Capital Region YMCA/YWCA. Across the country during the month of July, Moores locations are accepting gently used men’s and women’s suits, pants, shirts, ties, belts and shoes, while the YMCA/YWCA – through its housing programs – will distribute items to those whom they know need it most. “We are thrilled to partner with Moores on this critical effort to provide job seekers with professional interview and employment clothing,” said Cathy Turnbull, local president of housing, employment and newcomer services for the YMCA/ YWCA. “Locally, there are very limited resources to help men get suited for their job search.” The partnership is a natural fit for the YMCA/YWCA, which actively assists residents who are unemployed to find new work. Currently, the organization has two employment access centres operating in Ottawa, both of which offer employment counselling, job search support, and referrals to like-minded community and government programs. Turnbull said that besides allowing a “sharp” appearance, proper attire gives the wearer heightened self-confidence, which can only be a good thing when it comes time to meet with potential employers. That sentiment is echoed by Mike McFarland, director of human resources/benefits for Moores. “There are nearly 754,900 working-age males unemployed in this country, many of whom are trying to make a positive change for themselves, their families, and their communities,” said McFarland, adding their aim is to ultimately see those individuals meet their goals. Moores is hoping to reach this year’s goal of 50,000 donated articles of clothing by the end of the month.

Council rolls the dice on two gambling sites laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - City council is doubling down by asking the province if Ottawa can have two gambling sites. While council had already indicated a preference to see gambling options expanded where they already exist in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at the Rideau Carleton Raceway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the vote on July 17 means councillors would like to see another casino site in addition to keeping at least 21 gaming tables at the raceway. The move was in response to what Mayor Jim Watson and councillors have been hearing from residents, said Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney, who proposed the motion. Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson represents the raceway in his ward. He said he brought the largest petition he can recall a politician presenting: a 70,000-signature petition supporting saving jobs at the raceway by keeping gambling there.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There must be a fair and open process for casino bidding,â&#x20AC;? Watson said, adding that he feels there has been plenty of consultation on the issue already. All members of council supported Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to refer the discussion to a special meeting of the ďŹ nance and economic development committee on Aug. 26 so public delegates could come speak to the concept of creating two gambling zones in Ottawa. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean the idea of having two casinos has unanimous support around the council horseshoe. One of the most vocal casino opponents, Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans, dissented on the parts of the motion asking for two gambling zones for Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is conďŹ rmation of a pre-determined outcome that we want more gaming in Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? Deans said, noting that perhaps the city might want to do more consultation on the mat-

ter before coming to that conclusion. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why she voted in favour of sending the matter to the committee on Aug. 26. The move made other councillors happy, though, because it removed the perception that city council is favouring one community institution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the raceway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; over another, like the Ottawa Senators and Canadian Tire Centre. Sens owner Eugene Melnykâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleas to let him bid for a casino at the arena were shot down at a recent committee meeting when councillors voted to limit gambling to the raceway. Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion at the July 17 council meeting could reopen the door for a casino in Kanata or elsewhere in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This somehow devolved (into something) about saving jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, who was the seconder on Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153; The debate about gambling resulted in pitting two community resources against each other â&#x20AC;Ś This motion restores fairness.â&#x20AC;?

At Council on Wednesday, July 17th, Mayor Jim Watson and Ward Councillor Jan Harder presented the Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Builder Award to Chris Hughes for his many years of outstanding community service and volunteerism. Mayor Watson highlighted Mr. Hughesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; service to Christie Lake Kids, a local charitable organization founded in 1922 that supports, challenges, nurtures, develops skills and creates opportunities for economically disadvantaged children and youth in Ottawa. For more than 38 years, Mr. Hughes has fostered the well-being of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth and the community as a whole by donating his business and governance expertise to many community organizations, including the YM-YWCA, Youth Services Bureau, United Way Ottawa, Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid Society, Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities, Ottawa-Carleton Immigrant Services, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Royal Ottawa Hospital, and Christie Lake Kids. Mr. Hughes is currently the President of the Board of Directors of Christie Lake Kids. He was a long-serving Board member and chair of the Youth Services Bureau. He also volunteered extensively with United Way Ottawa as a member of the Impact Council for Children and chaired the Critical Hours Task Group.

Mr. Hughes has also found time to forge a distinguished career in senior management. He is Senior Vice-President at ITNet, a subsidiary of KPMG. Previously, he served as a senior management consultant to many federal government departments including the Privy Council OfďŹ ce and the OfďŹ ce of the Prime Minister, Transport Canada, Public Works and Government Services Canada and the Department of National Defence. The Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Builder Award is a civic honour created by Mayor Watson to recognize an individual, group or organization that has, through outstanding volunteerism or exemplary action, demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making our city a better place today and for the future. This may include lifelong service, outstanding acts of kindness, inspiring charitable work, community building or other exemplary achievements. Individuals, groups or organizations may be nominated by members of City Council or the public. The award is presented at the beginning of each City Council meeting. R0012223159

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives everyone a chance to be at the table,â&#x20AC;? said OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette, who was among the councillors who wanted to protect the raceway but be fair to other casino bidders at the same time. But it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the ďŹ rst time the mayor has asked for two gambling sites in Ottawa. Watson has previously written to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and provincial ofďŹ cials to ask for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;satellite facilityâ&#x20AC;? to complement gaming operations at the raceway. He received no response. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different than asking for two gambling sites in the form of two gaming zones for Ottawa, Watson said, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping for more success this time around â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially since he now has the support of council. West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry was among those who pointed out that the city has misstepped as it tries to react to a process dictated by the OLG.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a lesson in what not to do,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hard to turn a big ship after itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been sailing for a while.â&#x20AC;? Other councillors wanted city staff to prepare a report on the socio-economic impacts of expanding gambling in Ottawa. Council has already ordered such a report, but it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be undertaken until after a casino location had been proposed. If Tierneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion was accepted by the committee in August, it would kick off such a study, but only for the raceway location. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Agli said he planned to ask for an amendment to ensure the study looks at the possibility of more than one gambling site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should understand what kind of problem we could be creating,â&#x20AC;? said Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, who is not in favour of a new casino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a way, the point is moot to me today about how many casinos we have and where they are located.â&#x20AC;?

100 happy returns for Orchard View senior Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - In 1913, Canada was a booming, young nation less than 50 years old. Even as thousands of immigrants poured into the country, many regions of the Great White North remained unsettled and wild. In Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far north, many settlements were only accessible by canoe or foot. It was in one of these towns â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Elk Lake, between North Bay and Timmins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where Elizabeth â&#x20AC;&#x153;Libâ&#x20AC;? Cranston was born in a log cabin on July 16, 1913. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To get there you took the train to end of the rail, then canoed down the lake for 50 miles, and finally overland for five miles,â&#x20AC;? wrote Cranston in an autobiography given to Orchard View Living Centre where she now lives in

palsy which still operates in Toronto today. All this despite â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or perhaps because of â&#x20AC;&#x201C; her northern childhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was her upbringing in the north; it creates strong people,â&#x20AC;? said her son James Cranston, who travelled from Vancouver for his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milestone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She had a strong family, a strong mother. Her father ran a mine and they had to adapt.â&#x20AC;?

Manotick Station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was quite a trek, but we managed to have my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piano brought in which provided much enjoyment.â&#x20AC;? On July 14, Cranston celebrated her 100th birthday at Orchard View surrounded by friends and family. Her biography depicts a full and interesting life throughout a century of immense change. Cranston lived through two world wars, survived the flu epidemic of 1918 and was burned out of her home by northern forest fires more than once. Defying the times, she earned a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in social work and worked in the field in Toronto for several years before she married. After her marriage she dedicated her life to volunteer work and helped found a centre for youth with cerebral

FURTHER NORTH

When Lib was a young girl, her family moved even further north so her father could make more money at a bigger mine near Gowganda. There, she and her brother trapped muskrats, snared rabbits and picked berries to sell for a little extra spending money. She spent summers in

NOW!

Toronto with her mother, who had a city upbringing. When Lib was a teenager, she and her siblings moved to Toronto year-round to attend high school, since Gowgandaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school only offered two years of it. From there she took a mathematics degree at the University of Toronto, followed by her masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. She worked for the public service helping unemployed people before marrying her husband shortly before the Second World War. She and her husband â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and later their two children, James and Ann â&#x20AC;&#x201C; moved around a lot. The early war years were spent in Nova Scotia, and then Lib moved to Arnprior to stay with her mother-in-law until the war was over. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There I volunteered on the ration board, typed blood, rolled wool and took a St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ambulance course,â&#x20AC;? Lib wrote in her autobiography. The family returned to Toronto for several years, then resettled in Galt, near Cambridge, for 15 years where Lib was treasurer of the Vic-

LIB CRANSTON torian Order of Nurses. When they arrived in Ottawa, Lib immediately took up a volunteer position with the May Court ladies auxiliary, which she maintained for many years. Libâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Ann Blair said moving around as a child made her and her brother as adaptable as their mother was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She inspired us to be independent,â&#x20AC;? Blair said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were a strong family; they were very supportive parents. They made the transitions

easy for us but they also made it a natural thing.â&#x20AC;? Blair said she believes her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of the outdoors has been a factor in her longevity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has a saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use it, you lose it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So she was always very physically active,â&#x20AC;? Blair said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After my husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retirement at age 70 we spent over 20 years cottaging, travelling, golfing and skiing (downhill until the age of 87 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what a thrill!),â&#x20AC;? Lib wrote. They continued to golf and cross-country ski until the age of 92, when her husband died. That year Lib also gave up her car, although she still went to her cottage in Arnprior for the summer. But loneliness and boredom convinced her to move closer to her daughter Ann in Manotick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried living alone but it was no fun so I moved to Orchard View Living Centre in 2006,â&#x20AC;? Lib wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking back over 100 years, from a remote log cabin to the world of today, who would ever have imagined such change.â&#x20AC;?

Lifestyle - Taking your pet to the vet can be a trying experience. Some pets will find it traumatic, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critical to keeping your pet healthy and catching potential problems early on. Pets Plus Us, a pet owner community and insurance coverage provider, provides advice on finding the right vet and the importance of preventive care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best advice I can give is to get your dog or cat used to going to the vet when they are young,â&#x20AC;? says Randy Valpy, the top dog at Pets Plus Us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another great tip is to ask your friends and family for a referral.â&#x20AC;? When you take your pet to the vet, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to write down your questions ahead of time. If this is the annual visit, your vet will examine their eyes, teeth, and ears; will check their coat and skin for bumps and sores; and will listen to the heart and weigh them. The vet will likely also perform a musculoskeletal exam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that every dog and cat benefits from annual vet checkups, vaccinations and dental care,â&#x20AC;? Valpy continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An annual trip to the vet is still the most effective way to keep your pet healthy and, in some cases, can help avoid emergency medical care.â&#x20AC;? When you are taking your dog or cat to the vet, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to bring some treats or toys for them, particularly if they are anxious, Valpy said. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also want to have a leash handy to keep your pet close to you. If your dog barks or bites, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to have them in a muzzle. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also want to bring your insurance card if you have pet insurance. More information is available online at www.petsplusus.com. News Canada

Teen sets the bar high on first attempt Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

Sports - Larissa Brown is soaring to new heights after she smashed a long-standing Canadian high jump record on her first try July 6. The 14-year-old St. Mark Catholic High School student was already registered for two track events at the Boiling Point Track Classic, which welcomes all track and field athletes with a disability to compete at the Terry Fox athletics facility. Larissa is visually impaired and competes in category F12, which means she has some perception of light and movement. As a burgeoning track star, she planned to compete in the 100-metre and 200-metre dashes. But that Thursday, she asked her coach at the Ottawa Lions Club if she could try high jump as well. With a white T-shirt tied to the bar and the help of a guide, she attempted a jump that evening – and she was a natural. She signed up for Saturday’s event. Two days later during warm-up, Larissa casually cleared 1.30 metres – the Canadian women’s F12 high jump record, which was set in 1987. “They said they need to get an official over there to measure it,” Larissa’s mother Sue Brown said. “They knew she was going to break the record.” Larissa cleared 1.40 metres in competition, winning the event and

SUBMITTED

Larissa Brown gets ready to blast off at a track meet in Ottawa. She recently broke the Canadian women’s high jump record for F12 visually impaired athletes at the Boiling Point Track Classic on July 6. also setting a new Canadian women’s record for the F12 category. “I couldn’t believe it. I was so surprised,” Larissa said. Six other Canadian records were broken at the seventh annual Boiling Point meet. The young field hero also per-

formed on the track, winning first in her 200m heat and finishing second in the 100m final, crossing just behind American blade runner April Holmes. “We are so thrilled,” Brown said. “We never expected she would do so well, especially so young. But it’s

opened so many doors for her.” NATURAL ATHLETE

Larissa has always been active. Until last year she was heavily involved in competitive dance, but had to quit when her vision worsened and

she couldn’t decipher the choreography. Without dancing, Larissa faced a void. “She was so involved and all of a sudden we had a lot of time on our hands,” Brown said. One day in early spring, Larissa and her family visited the Terry Fox track facility at Mooney’s Bay and saw several visually impaired athletes training. Larissa decided to try track, and joined the Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club in March. Because she had joined an ablebodied group, Larissa originally felt badly that her peers had to act as her guide on the track even though they were paying to run themselves. But as luck would have it, no one in Larissa’s age group was fast enough to be her guide anyway – so she moved up to a university-level training team where the runners were able to match her speed. Now she trains three nights a week with a regular twilight meet on Wednesday evenings. She hopes to add high jump training on Saturdays. While breaking the high jump record was a happy shock, Larissa said she will focus on her track performance so she can someday compete at the Paralympic Games. Currently, women’s high jump does not exist at the Paralympic level. “My goal this year is to beat my personal bests for the 100m and 200m, and hopefully someday Canadian records as well,” she said.

Water warnings extended due to high levels

SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

Tea for two Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind hosted their annual UK Day Garden Party and Tea, in the tradition of a British high tea. The public, guide dog supporters and many British individuals enjoyed the afternoon out on July 14, stopping by the headquarters for hot tea and scones, all prepared by the chef at Earnscliffe – the residence of the British high commission. Above, Ottawa residents Jane Beyon and Melissa Austin were just a few of the attendees who enjoyed the event, while listening to live music by Lynch & Fine. Classic British cars were also on display during the afternoon.

With social media and on-line classified sales, that poster for cute but unwanted kittens has been replaced with online ads. “Free to good home” advertisements are now disseminated much more widely and have become much more common. Is there such a thing as a free kitten? No! Once even the early costs of caring for a young animal – such as sterilization, vaccination and de-worming – are factored in, the OHS estimates that it will cost more than $600 for a kitten and even more for a puppy in its first year, not including food and basic supplies. Sadly, many people are shocked by these costs and either simply ignore the

News - Water levels this year are higher than usual and are accompanied by soft, slippery banks that are treacherous, particularly for young children, adults and the family pet, says the Ottawa Drowning Prevention Coalition. Stay away from river and creek banks and avoid rock hopping. Stream polished rocks along the water’s edge may be slippery when wet or dry. Swift water is powerful and relentless. Waves in the ocean come and go, but if you get pinned against an obstacle in a river, the relentless crushing force of the water won’t dissipate. Even the strongest people are no match for the force of a rushing river. Many people don’t realize just how many hazards exist in swift water. Even rivers that appear calm can hide serious, life-threatening dangers. During the spring and early summer, rivers and creeks swollen by runoff from snowmelt are dangerous. Powerful current, icy water and river obstructions can trap or kill the unwary. It is important to remember that drowning deaths are preventable. Residents are encouraged to follow these tips: • Stay within arm’s reach of your child at all times in and around the water. • Ensure weak or non-swimmers wear a lifejacket or personal flotation device. • Enrol yourself and your children in swimming lessons. • Take a first aid and CPR course.

ll Mother needed for an excuse to have a picnic was a sunny and hot Sunday afternoon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after church, of course. Father thought the whole idea was nonsense when you could spend the afternoon having a nap in the grape arbour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That once-a-year church picnic is enough for me,â&#x20AC;? he lamented. Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resting in the summer often moved him from the rocking chair in the kitchen with his feet on the oven door of the Findlay Oval to the grape arbour, where an old lawn chair and the two-seater swing sat in the cool haven of the overhanging grape leaves. But of course, as for the Sunday picnic, Mother overruled and we five children were thrilled beyond belief: we would be spending the afternoon on the banks of the Bonnecherre River. It was a hefty walk to get to the river, overloaded as we were with baskets of lunch, bats and balls, our swim suits and towels, Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newspapers, scrap books and diaries. I always had to take at least one

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories doll with me too. As long as Father had his pipe and a good supply of tobacco that was about all he was interested in lugging down to the river. The cook stove would be allowed to go out on Saturday night. That meant a cold breakfast, which further annoyed Father, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider any meal worth pulling a chair up to the table for unless it included meat and potatoes. But Mother let the stove die down because that meant a nice cool kitchen when we got back from our picnic on Sunday, a rare treat from a stove that blasted out blistering heat waves 24 hours a day, every other day of the week. As soon as we got back from church, and while the boys and Father tended to the last-minute chores in the barn, Audrey and Mother

would haul bowls of food out of the ice box that had been prepared the night before. This meant hard boiled eggs, mashed fine, sliced cold pork and roast beef, cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, and of course, a slab cake smothered in brown-sugar icing. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for thick sandwiches, sliced vegetables and a huge sealer of iced tea to be ready to pack into 11-quart baskets, all wrapped in an ample supply of clean flour-bag tea towels â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we had enough food to feed half of Renfrew County! We would pile as much as we could on the little wagon with wobbly tin wheels, which I used to hitch our old collie dog to so my dolls could be pulled around the yard. It was better than lugging the heavy baskets down to the river. See GREAT, page 35

Great day on the river Continued from page 34

We always went to the same spot on the Bonnechere, where the old maple tree had long since fallen across the narrowest part of the river and where there was a wide grassy bank and more trees. My sister Audrey spread out two blankets and covered the little wagon with another to keep the lunch as cold as possible. Wearing short pants for bathing suits, my brothers were in the water almost as soon as we hit the river, Mother had propped herself against a tree with her books and papers spread around her, Audrey and I hid behind a tree and stripped off our clothes and got into two suits Aunt Freda had sent us from Chicago. They were scratchy, made of pure wool, and as soon as they were wet, went as hard as cement, but they were all we had. Father walked around with his pipe hanging out of his mouth, not looking at all pleased. He asked Mother when she planned on taking out the lunch, lamenting that what he had for breakfast couldn’t really be called a decent meal. Mother said lunch was a long way off, and he might as well settle down and have a little nap. The afternoon wore on. Emerson said he didn’t care if we ever went back home. The three boys had water fights, tried to catch fish with a makeshift pole and jumped off the fallen tree to see who could land the farthest. Audrey was reading her books borrowed from the Renfrew Library and I was playing with my doll, pretending she was a brand new baby and this was her first outing on a picnic. Well, Father never did settle down for a nap. He walked the shoreline, he lit and relit

his pipe, and when he finally sat down with his back against a tree, he never took his eyes off the blanket covering the lunch. “Think I’ll head back to the barns to check on that cow that didn’t look too good this morning,” he said. Even though we had yet to eat the lunch, I knew Father wouldn’t be back, and I knew too the cow had little to do with it. When the sun was heading for the west and we had eaten the lunch, the boys had dried off, and everything was packed onto the little red wagon, Father still hadn’t come back. Mother assured me he would be just fine. “He just doesn’t like picnics,” she said. We gathered up our belongings and started for home. I saw it before anyone else – there was smoke coming out of the chimney over our house. Mother just let out a long and laboured sigh when I pointed it out to her. We opened the kitchen door to blazing heat and there was Father sitting at the old pine table. He hadn’t bothered taking off his straw hat and in front of him was a dinner plate piled high with fried potatoes, slabs of salt pork and enough buttered bread to feed a family of six. The white granite tea pot was boiling on the stove and Father had opened a jar of preserves and they weren’t in a fruit nappy, but in a soup bowl. “Well, so much for a nice cool kitchen,” was all Mother said. Finally, Father stopped shovelling in his food long enough to look up from his plate. “A man can’t be expected to work from dawn to dusk and survive on a sandwich and a piece of cake,” he said, taking another long slurp of hot tea from his saucer.

Main Street to be made ‘complete’ Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A heated discussion about making Main Street “complete” ended in the result Old Ottawa East residents were looking for: reduced car lanes, added cycling lanes and wider sidewalks. The two-lane, “complete street” makeover for Main Street was approved by council on July 17, but construction won’t get underway until August of next year, after the detailed design is completed. The ward’s councillor, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, said council’s 18-6 vote was a huge win for the community. “Main Street has degraded as a place to live, a place to walk, a place to own a business or develop,” he said. “This will be a boost for businesses and development.” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley has been outspoken in his objection to the completestreet makeover. He worried that approving the format would set the stage for city staff to recommend a complete street for arterial roads and main streets in the suburbs, like his community. “I’m supportive of this type of complete street when it’s within a community,” Hubley said, adding that main streets and arterial roads are “not streets we can restrict traffic on.” Mayor Jim Watson was also in support of the revamp because he said it will slow down traffic and make the area safer, which are the top issues he hears about from residents across the city. “This is a very progressive thing to do,” the mayor said, adding he hopes to see more “com-

plete streets” in other communities. Transportation committee chairman Keith Egli, councillor for Knoxdale-Merivale Ward, has been a champion for the complete-street makeover. He said it “is not an inflexible template.” “A complete street in Kanata might not look at all like a complete street in Coun. Chernushenko’s ward,” Egli said. “There are criteria, but it’s a flexible approach to dealing with roads. Project manager Ron Clark from Delcan, the consulting firm the city hired for the project, said Main Street can currently handle 1,200 vehicles in both direction per hour in peak times. When the street is rebuilt, it could handle 900 vehicles in the same period with no traffic delays, or the same 1,200-vehicle volume as today, but with a three-minute delay. “It’s giving more mobility options. It’s not saying you have to walk or cycle,” said Chernushenko, who has a reputation as a cycling advocate and environmentalist. “ It’s saying that if you were too scared, now you can.” Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder was completely opposed to the idea. She said she doesn’t want an assumption ever, or at least in the next decade, that the city would put a similar type of complete street in a suburban area. Harder and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume said they hoped getting a complete street for Main Street would make Old Ottawa East residents more willing to accept the Alta Vista Transportation Corridor – a new bridge from the hospital area across the Rideau River, connecting to Lees Avenue in Old Ottawa East. But Hume also said he didn’t think the issue was as “dramatic” as other councillors made it out to be.

News - Children are invited to get their hands dirty in Brewer Park’s community garden this weekend as part of a workshop for aspiring green thumbs. Just Food is hosting the event to get children aged 6 to 12 gardening and to teach them about how food grows. The workshop begins at 1 p.m. at Brewer Park Community Garden on July 28. Just Food organizer Agathe Moreau said the event will be full of activities to encourage the young gardeners. “The event is all about learning through games with different activities and it’s a lot of fun,” Moreau said. “It’s good for the kids to be out in the garden out in the neighbourhood.” This is the third and last public workshop Just Food has organized for the summer. The other two events took place in Kanata and Old Ottawa East. The non-profit organization’s goal is to make healthy food available to everyone in the Ottawa region. It also helps run many different events at community gardens, helps communities set up their own gardens and runs workshops about things like gardening soils,

offering five workshops for children last year across the city. This year, the organization will only host two public events, with smaller events taking place over the summer as part of summer camp programming. Moreau said parents can drop their children off for the duration of the workshop, but are also welcome to stay and participate. For more information about the workshop, or Just Food, visit justfood.ca.

ply habitat for ďŹ sh and improve the function of adjacent wetlands for aquatic species. Early monitoring shows numerous ďŹ sh species in the newly created habitat including largemouth bass, black crappie, walleye, yellow perch, trout perch, northern pike and many more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are delighted with the diverse number of ďŹ sh species calling this new habitat home,â&#x20AC;? says Rideau Valley Conservation Authority biologist Jennifer Lamoureux. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is rewarding to see them using the different areas as we hoped they would.â&#x20AC;? This means largemouth bass are hiding in the planted white water lilies and northern pike are enjoying the shade and safety of submerged sweeper trees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shoreline and aquatic plants are

also surviving well. There are over 40 native plant species thriving nicely in the project area,â&#x20AC;? says Lamoureux who is equally impressed that invasive species such as Eurasian milfoil, purple loosestrife and wild celery were in low numbers. This project is to compensate for the partial loss of ďŹ sh habitat on a tributary of the Jock River and another loss on Mosquito Creek. RVCA worked with developers DCR Phoenix, Tartan Homes and Claridge Homes and the City of Ottawa to ďŹ nance and complete the project. Chapman Mills is a nine-hectare parcel of conservation land located on the west bank of the Rideau River on Prince of Wales Drive, between Winding Way and Lodge Road. It consists of natural river shoreline wetlands and ďŹ&#x201A;ood plain areas that are unique in Ottawa.

In summer 2011, a channel was cut to connect an existing backwater bay of the Rideau to the main channel. A shallow embayment was also created providing an important habitat island adjacent to the main river. These changes were done to improve water circulation through the connecting channel, create spawning, nursery, rearing and food sup-
