News - A Bells Corners co-operative is trying to raise money for a new play structure on their Seyton Drive property. Janice Lafontaine, the fundraising co-ordinator for the project at the Eileen Tallman Co-op, said the old structure they had was made of wood and had to be taken down for safety reasons. A new one is going to cost upwards of $24,000, she said. So far, residents and volunteers have managed to raise more than $8,000 towards that goal with a number of bake sales and a summer carnival that took place a week after the Westcliffe Estates Community Association Fun Day. “We found that bake sales really have worked well for us,” Lafontaine said, adding people don’t have time to bake anymore and prefer homemade goods. While she is working with some other volunteers on matching grants from either the city or other local social service agencies, Lafontaine said she is worried about donor fatigue. “People only have so much to give,” she said. After a summer filled with work, fundraisers are taking a break, but continuing to seek out funding sources for a new play structure. Lafontaine said the co-op is very diverse. “We have young families, older people, different colours and different incomes,” Lafontaine said. See, HOUSING, page 5

Stars during a competition in Glace Bay, N.S. Despite being eliminated from the Worlds by Panama, Nepean’s Eagles were greeted with fanfare from the community, the coaching staff and league volunteers. “Just to win against all the other little league teams in Ottawa is amazing, then to win the provincials is fantastic; winning nationals is mind blowing. We are so proud of you,” said Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder.

Harder added that in the age of social media, residents could follow along with the progress of their home team via Twitter and cheer them on. “Last time East Nepean went to Worlds we had to watch the game at the Nepean Sportsplex.” Team manager Mark Keeping said he had been with the team for the last three years and thought of some of the members as family. “We are here to celebrate the 13 guys wearing the Team Canada jerseys,” he said.

The three-phase, $8.4 million reconstruction project on Meadowlands Drive has caused headaches for area residents as commuters speed along detours. Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli spent some time along the detour on Sept. 3 with his staff reminding drivers to slow down for school children.

News - Reconstruction work along Meadowlands Drive has caused some traffic headaches for area residents. That’s why Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli and some of his staff planned to camp out along Tiverton Drive on the first day of school to warn motorists to slow down. The three-phase, $8.4 million reconstruction project, which replaced watermains, valves, hydrants, sewermains and service connections, started in 2011 and is slated for completion in late November. Some minor clean-up work will remain for beginning of the 2014 construction season. “We have had some complaints from residents about speeding, so we wanted to be visible on the first day of school,” Egli said. “It’s just human nature. We made a detour and they want to get where they are going. So drivers are going a little too fast.” Egli said Ottawa police have increased their presence in the area to deter the speeding, and one resident volunteered his lawn for a speed sign, but the problem persists. “We have put up some more signs saying there’s zero tolerance for speeding,” Egli said. “But the first day of school, there’s going to be even more traffic and kids on their way for the first time, so we hope to serve as a reminder.” Const. Mark Nethercott, a community police officer for the Parkwood Hills area, said Carleton Heights Public School students moving to the former Parkwood Hills Public School during the renovations will mean more kids biking, walking or busing in the area. “The increased number of kids, coupled with the construction, means drivers need to be vigilant,” he said. Nethercott added police have stepped up traffic enforcement in the area surrounding Meadowlands area over the summer due to complaints from residents. “One of the bigger problems is volume,” he said. “There are a lot more drivers going through the surrounding neighbourhoods than

residents are used to and there’s the perception of speeding.” Nethercott said police would join Egli’s office on Sept. 3 in attempt to remind road users to stay safe. The police also sent out an advisory in advance of the first day of school, reminding drivers to plan their routes to avoid construction areas if at all possible and to obey signage and slow down. Westbound traffic along Meadowlands Drive is closed between Inverness Avenue and Tiverton Drive. Eastbound traffic on Tiverton Drive between Kilmory Street and Bowmoor Avenue is also diverted. Egli said electronic signs with radar that show the driver’s speed were also set up along the detour route this summer as a deterrent. The city is currently running a $10,000 pilot project that uses small speed limit signs drilled into the centre line of the roadway as a method to get drivers to reduce their speed.

The increased number of kids, coupled with the construction, means drivers need to be vigilant. CONST. MARK NETHERCOTT

A dozens streets in the city, including Woodfield Drive in Nepean, were selected. While Egli said the pilot has proven to be successful in calming traffic so far, the area surrounding Meadowlands isn’t eligible as a test sight because the areas chosen were close to schools and parks. Egli said he had been in communication with the area community associations to remind people to slow down for school children. “We have also sent out information to residents through Winston Churchill Public School and others,” he said.

We deserved a real debate

O

ttawa voters should take note of a particular date on the calendar that passed recently. They should tuck the date away along with the memory of what happened that day, saving it for October next year when they are called upon to elect the next city council. The date is Aug. 28, the day council voted to cast aside what is typically accepted as normal behaviour for municipal bodies in Ontario - open competition, transparent process, regard for rules - and picked the Rideau Carleton Raceway as the only acceptable location for expanded gaming facilities in Ottawa. Voters should remember this date because there are a significant number of councillors who despite expressing legitimate reservations about the motion went ahead and voted for it anyway. Voters should also recall this vote is in contradiction to one held in October 2012, when the same council voted in favour of an open process for determining the site. During the course of the casino debate at city hall, councillors consistently raised concerns about public health issues, a convoluted process and the varying effects of seeing a new gaming facility placed at the raceway or at some other location. These are all valid concerns. If members of council have concerns, they

should look to address them before approving something as significant to the city as a new casino. Instead, we see Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess point to many of those issues only to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve consistently voted yes and held my nose doing it.â&#x20AC;? We also see Bay Coun. Mark Taylor saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;this has been an unclear and unclean process.â&#x20AC;? His residents, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;want a more open process,â&#x20AC;? but â&#x20AC;&#x153;we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten there yet.â&#x20AC;? He voted in favour of the motion. And for College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;not the best decision, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the least worst.â&#x20AC;? It has become the habit of this council to approve everything that comes before it, whether there are flaws or not. It is the job of councillors to scrutinize and challenge things. If something smells a little off, why not amend it? Better to reject a motion that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit right than to pass it despite any reservations. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why there are councillors rather than just a mayor who runs the city by fiat. Following the bitter divisions that marked many debates during the last council term under mayor Larry Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, the incoming council sought to do business differently. But this should never have led councillors to become afraid to challenging things they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel are right. The residents of Ottawa deserve better from their elected leaders.

Initial thoughts on saving words from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;initialismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; scourge

T

here are more important causes, to be sure, but would anybody be interested in trying to save the English language from the curse of initialism? I thought of this the other day when dealing with a respected Ottawa company with a well-known name and being told to make the cheque out to some initials. Oh no, I thought. Another one. It joins KFC, RBC, KLM, TLC, IBM, BP, HBC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; outfits that prefer to be known by their initials. In some cases, you can understand it. The initials KLM refer to the words for Dutch national airlines in Dutch. KLM is less likely to confuse people. In the case of KFC, you will recall that â&#x20AC;&#x153;friedâ&#x20AC;? became a dirty word some time ago but Kentucky Fried Chicken had too much invested in its brand to change it to something more nutritionally correct. So KFC it became. Likewise, the banks woke up one day and realized that a lot of people hated banks. This is not a good thing to ponder if you happen to be a bank and have the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;bankâ&#x20AC;? in your name. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we have BMO instead of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bank of Montreal,â&#x20AC;? RBC instead of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Royal Bank of Canada.â&#x20AC;?

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town British Petroleum might have become BP because Americans werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used to using the word petroleum. Or it might be because oil companies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to be thought of as oil companies. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any idea why the Hudsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Company, an organization with a deep historical association with Canada, would want to become HBC. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong with any of those words? It may just be that someone sold them on the idea that initials are more modern. TLC is what The Learning Channel calls itself. This is better than what most people call it, namely, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the station that only has programs about wedding dresses.â&#x20AC;? At one time, TLC stood for â&#x20AC;&#x153;tender, loving care,â&#x20AC;? so maybe the choice of initials is deliberate.

Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, September 5, 2013

There are times when sticking with words would help, such as in the case of WWF, which means World Wildlife Federation, but used to also mean World Wrestling Federation. You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to call the wrong one by mistake if you had some seals you wanted saved. Many of these companies, like IBM, have been around for decades and their initials are well-known. There is no quarrel with them. But it does seem odd that others are so anxious to abandon perfectly good words. There is a sports talk show on TV called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pardon the Interruption.â&#x20AC;? The words perfectly describe the show, in which two commentators continually interrupt each other. But now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known as PTI. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another one called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Off the Record,â&#x20AC;? that is more commonly called OTR. Why? Why go to all the trouble of trying to name a show, a network, a bank, and then abandon it to sink in a sea of alphabet soup? Definitely Not the Opera was a clever title for a Saturday afternoon CBC radio show. DNTO is not a clever title. Sometimes substituting initials for words doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even save syllables. There is a legendary ice cream joint in Winnipeg called the Bridge Drive-In. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right beside a bridge, so

the name is evocative. But the initials, BDI, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. There has to be a reasonable explanation. One answer you hear is that the abbreviated name is easier to use as an Internet address, and indeed you will see this if you look up some companies on the web. As if it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already ruining our lives in other ways, the Internet now has yet another thing to answer for. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been taught how important words are, how anxious our parents were to hear us speak them. And now this. Guys: use your words.

Hot days, cool nights - what a summer!

S

stuck in the city – as I was with a newborn – it was too hot and humid. Nope, the summer of 2013 was much more nicely balanced, in my opinion – hot days, cool nights, some cooling off periods between three, separate heat waves. This is my kind of summer. And for anyone who’s still doubting my judgment of the weather, you may be surprised to know that – despite the soggy month of June – the hours of sunshine over the past three months have matched or exceeded that of 2012. We’ve also had seven weeks with maximum temperatures over 30 degrees this year, which I’d say is pretty decent. People always complain about the weather – it’s too hot, it’s too cold, it’s too wet, it’s too dry – but at the end of the day, the summer is what you make of it. For me, summer 2012 will go down in the family memoirs as good one – after all, I spent more than 30 days on the beach this year, only one of them shivering in a fleece sweater. If that’s not the mark of a good summer, I don’t know what is.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse it’s been.” But really, how warm does it have to be to jump off your back deck into a heated pool? I, on the other hand, like to escape the city whenever the mercury spikes above 25 C. Thanks to my Gatineau Park pass, I’ve spent more than two dozen days aside local lakes. Doesn’t anyone remember the hot, sticky weather that struck in late June? It was, in fact, a heat wave that – except for the blip, which was Canada Day – lasted well into the third week of July. I know this because I spent 20 nights in a tent this summer. That’s about a third of July and August, for those of you who aren’t very good at doing quick sums in your head. Most of those nights were balmy. Some saw me kicking off my sleeping bag.

Of those 20 nights, only once did I have to dive into the trunk of my SUV with three kids in tow because of a thunderstorm directly overhead. (That wasn’t so nice). And one or two of the 20 mornings that followed did I have to put my rubber boots on because of a smattering of rain that fell in the early morning. A lot of people are merely nostalgic for the summer of 2012, which apparently set a new milestone for Canadian summers. I don’t remember much of 2012, except for the recordbreaking temperatures in July, when I happened to be 42 weeks pregnant. The rest is pretty much a blur. It turns out, however, it was a hot one – 11 weeks of maximum temperatures over 30 C last year. But for anyone

Lifestyle - Much to the chagrin of children everywhere, the new school year is upon us The Ontario Dental Association suggests parents take advantage of these last few weeks of summer vacation to ensure their kids return to school with an Aplus in dental health. “Now is the perfect time to get the whole family in for a dental examination before the school year begins and schedules fill up,” says ODA president Dr. Rick Caldwell. A dental exam can also uncover problems that might go undetected. It has been reported that tooth decay is one of the leading causes of absences from school. In its Report on the Findings of the Oral Health Component of the Canadian Health Measures Survey 2007-2009, Health Canada found that in the space of one year, 45.7 percent of children six to 11 reported time lost from normal or school activities due to oral health problems. To emphasize the importance of prevention, the

ODA has a back-to-school checklist for parents: • Schedule regular dental exams with your dentist for the year. • When shopping for back-to-school clothes and supplies, be sure to include new toothbrushes on your list. A child’s toothbrush should be changed every three months or immediately after an illness. • Make sure your child brushes at least twice a day and flosses daily. To encourage healthy habits, let your child watch you brush and floss your teeth as often as possible. • Prepare a healthy and nutritious shopping list for your child’s lunch, including fruits, vegetables and cheeses for snacks. Avoid soft, sticky sweets that get stuck in your child’s teeth or stay in the child’s mouth for a long time, such as lollipops. • Educate your kids on the importance of oral health.

ummer is officially over for most of us. All I’m hearing from people around me is what a lousy season we’ve had for weather. It makes me wonder if I’ve been living on another planet; or maybe I’ve finally achieved my goal of converting to an optimist; or maybe it’s just that having spent a few years living in Britain, there’s hardly a Canadian summer around that could disappoint me. Sure, we started out pretty wet. I mean, what was June besides a big puddle? One hundred and fifty millimetres of rainfall, to be precise. But from the moment school was out the weather, in my mind, has been glorious. Of course, it all depends on your expectations. According to one recent study on happiness, 13.9 C is the optimum temperature to keep us feeling good. Somehow, however, I think those complaining about the weather were hoping for a greater number of sweltering days, rather than cool ones. One particularly cynical individual said, “If you had a pool in your backyard, you’d know what a crappy summer

Getting Safely Back into Routine:

School Lunches Getting back into the school routine can be challenging, especially when the relaxed meal schedules are gone and the task of making lunches returns once again. Health Canada estimates that 11 to 13 million Canadians suffer from foodborne illness each year, and unfortunately children are in a higher risk category to experience more serious symptoms. Foodborne illness occurs when harmful bacteria, viruses or parasites make their way into the body through food or beverages and cause illness or disease. To avoid unwanted “ingredients” making their way into your child’s lunch bag, here are some key reminders to parents when packing lunches.

Keep Hot Foods Hot

Keep Cold Foods Cold • Keep cold foods cold at 4°C or below -Use a refrigerator if possible or use a frozen ice pack, frozen water bottle or juice box and place beside the perishable foods - Use an insulated lunch bag and store it away from sun light or other heat sources. Refrigerate or freeze lunch bags the night before use.

in contact with raw meats make sure to wash them with warm soapy water to eliminate any germs that may be present

• Foods like soups, chilli, stews and any leftovers must stay hot at 60°C or higher to stay safe. If they are going to be eaten hot at lunchtime, use an • Wash fruits and vegetables before cutting up or eating, even those with insulated thermos or container rinds and skins as the surfaces may • Preheat the insulated thermos or be contaminated with germs or dirt container by adding boiling water for a few minutes. While you are doing this, heat the food in the microwave or stove top to 74°C/165°F. Then empty the thermos of the boiling water and fill it with the hot food

News - Onkel Otto is looking for you. Along with the famed mascot, Dwight Brown, founder of the Ottawa Oktoberfest, said this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration at Clarke Fields is going to be the biggest yet. Twenty performers will serenade the festival goers on four different stages during the three-day event that runs from Sept. 27 to 29. With a variety of local acts set to hit the stage, from Manotickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indie rocker group Hollerado, to homegrown Barrhaven native Amanda Rheaume, there promises to be plenty to listen to. Brown said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also go-

ing to be a lot of for revellers taste buds. Organizers chose three local brewers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hogs Back Brewing Company, Broadhead Brewing Company and Big Rig Brewery â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to provide the suds for the weekend. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also going to be Waupoos Cider available and a red and a white wine courtesy of Fuzion. The food vendors are also local â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Your Independent Grocer, Thimble Cakes, and Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Glen to name a few. Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oktoberfest celebrations began with a fundraising dinner held by the Rotary Club of Ottawa Kanata Sunrise. It started out as a fundraising dinner and then moved to

a weekend-long celebration of local food and froth at the Richmond fairgrounds three years ago. After the move to Barrhaven last year, Brown said the festival moved away from its Rotary roots and now operates as its own not-for-profit in partnership with the Barrhaven Business Improvement Area. The Bavarian twist on local venues, food and drink has helped many people discover what the suburb has to offer, Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have heard from a lot of people that they make a whole weekend of it and come and stay with friends in Barrhaven,â&#x20AC;? he said. Because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an event centred on imbibing, Brown said orga-

nizers spent a lot of time thinking about transportation. Shuttle buses are available to the Longfields and Fallowfield bus stations. There is also going to be a makeshift parking lot at the Strandherd snow dumping facility. A shuttle will take people from there to Clarke Fields. The last day of the festival is slated to be a family day and will feature the Brothers DubĂŠ, as well as the Junkyard Symphony and midway games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We plan to have something for everything,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. Single-day passes for the festival are $15 in advance. An early bird special offers admission for two people on Friday and Saturday for $30.

Fees raised Sept. 1 for driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licences and vehicle permits Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - Fees for drivers licences associated services increased on Sept. 1 and will increase again in 2014 and 2015. Raised fees include new driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licences and renewals, licence replacement, driver ex-

aminations and vehicle permits. While replacing a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license currently costs $15, it will go up to $28 by 2015. Licence renewals increased by $5 on Sept. 1, but will not change in 2014 and 2015. Most driving tests for new drivers went up $10, but 2014 and 2015 final prices havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been determined yet.

According to a provincial government press release, the cost increases are tied to the increasing cost of maintaining provincial roads, highways and bridges, and to â&#x20AC;&#x153;support the quality services Ontarians rely on, such as education and health care.â&#x20AC;? Ontario has 9.3 million licensed drivers. The estimated revenue increase by raising

the prices adds almost $200 million to the $1.1 billion collected annually through the licensing and renewals services. Currently in Ottawa, the province is spending money on several projects. One of those projects includes the Highway 417 expansion and the new St. Laurent off ramp which opened on Aug. 30.

Funding boosts police youth program Recent grads talk about their experience in policing program pated in the program, saying they beat out 300 of their peers to get a coveted YIPI spot. “Your parents should be proud of the contribution you make to the community,” Watson said. Patrick said the course began in early July with a campout and trip to Camp Smitty – an outdoor summer camp near Eganville, Ont. “We found team building to be a very important piece,” Patrick said. “Once the work starts they tend to be spread out across the various departments of the Ottawa police, so it’s better if they get to know each other and make those friendships right at the beginning. It’s also a chance for them to get to know police officers in a formal setting.” Aside from the behind-the-scenes look at what police officers do, the students got their CPR and health and safety certifications, as well as SafeTalk suicide prevention training. Maniza Khan, who served as one of the class valedictorian’s said she enjoyed her time. “Now I truly value the Ottawa Police Service,” she said. “The majority of Canadians view police officers as a friend in need. Now we really know the responsibilities that fall on your shoulders.” Khan said during training she expected to be told where she fell short, but instead her strengths were cel-

News - While one class has ended, it’s just the beginning for the city’s Youth in Policing Initiative program. What started as a summer program with seven students in 2007 has now ballooned to three, two-month sessions each year that allows high school students to get a behind-thescenes look at how policing works. The last class, which graduated Aug. 23 during a ceremony at Ben Franklin Place, got an inside peek at the force’s fraud, canine and identification units. “Some of them got to go to retailers and show them how to identify a counterfeit bill,” said Tom Patrick coordinator of the program for the Ottawa police. Patrick said the Ottawa program is based on one in Toronto. “In Toronto you have to be from a certain postal code,” he said. “Here we try to take a mix of high achievers, those from low-income neighbourhoods … all walks of life.” High school students aged 15 to 18 can apply to be part of the program. Patrick said a recommendation from a teacher or a police officer goes a long way towards a successful application.

Federal government funding biotech jobs Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - The federal government will give BioTalent Canada $1.5 million towards funding biotech jobs for new post-secondary graduates. Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau was at the BioTalent offices in downtown Ottawa on Aug. 28 to make the announcement on behalf of Minister of State for Social Development Candice Bergen. Galipeau said that while many students study what they’re interested in at university

but it doesn’t always lead the way to job opportunities. “I think it’s marrying the business of science with technical knowledge,” said BioTalent president Rob Henderson of the funding. Henderson said additional jobs will help new graduates with backgrounds in sciences get experience applying their knowledge and learning about the business side of the science industry. About 110 jobs, ranging from three months to a year placement, will be 50 per cent paid for by the funding, and 50 per cent paid for by the employer through the wage-subsidy program.

Upside down and backwards: exploring dyslexia In the first of a three-part series, reporter Jennifer McIntosh discusses how she discovered her son had dyslexia and its impact on her child’s education Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - “My stomach hurts.” That’s a common complaint from my son. It starts every September and it ends in June. It’s either the longest flu ever, or he doesn’t like school. James Gannon, now 8, is a friendly outgoing kid. He loves science, plays hockey and wants to be a lawyer when he grows up. Only problem is, he can’t read. He hides it well; he watches my face when he’s sounding out words, so he can see if he’s getting a sound right. He memorizes letter formations to guess at what a word might be. He also stays quiet in class and listens to the teacher. He looks like he’s reading, but he’s not. James has dyslexia. It wasn’t a conclusion that I came to lightly. The problem first began in junior kindergarten. I was flabbergasted when the teacher asked me if my gregarious, intelligent child might have speech problems. He was tested by first words, a screening program done by Ontario Early Years centres, and there didn’t seem to be any problems. With that hurdle cleared I thought things would surely improve. Less than a month later the same teacher came to me with concerns about his writing. “He doesn’t seem to be able to grip the pencil properly,” she said. So I purchased the pencil grip and complained to anyone who would listen about how the school system is designed for girls and my son was being 18

unfairly persecuted. We changed schools for senior kindergarten and then again for Grade 1. He still didn’t seem to like school, but I dismissed it as residual anger from the two moves. In Grade 1, the teacher at our school in Bells Corners said he was having trouble seeing the side board; further investigation found that he had a lazy eye and his eyesight was 20/80. James was excited to put on his first pair of glasses. He picked out blue ones – his favourite colour – and talked about how he was now going to be able to read as well as his best friend. But that didn’t happen. I might never have noticed anything was wrong, except that the same year I attended a workshop called Walk a Mile in My Shoes. The workshop is led by Linda Barbetta, the executive director of the Learning Disabilities Association of Ottawa Carleton. She holds the workshops for educators to help them understand what it’s like to be in an average classroom if you have dyslexia. During each workshop she hands the participants a passage with the letters distributed on different lines, with some reversals. “People spend so much time decoding the message, there’s very little comprehension going on,” she said. “If that had been a math problem, you’d be hard pressed to come up with the solution.” It was like a light bulb went off. I went home and asked my son to tell me what it looked

like to him when he was reading. “Well, the words sometimes move around on the page and it makes it hard to concentrate,” he said. My heart sank. I probably stayed up all night researching dyslexia. The answers I found weren’t encouraging. According to the Ministry of Education in the 2010-11 school year (the most recent figures available) more than 191,600 students provincewide were marked by an identification placement and review committee as exceptional pupils. A further 127,600 students who were not formally identified were provided with special education programs and services. The ministry recognizes 14 exceptionalities – which can include anything from being gifted to autism. It doesn’t officially recognize dyslexia. Barbetta said it’s most commonly classed as a language-based learning disability. To obtain an individualized education plan – commonly referred to as an IEP – most students must be assessed by a psychologist to determine where their strengths and weakness are. In theory, it’s a good idea, except the waiting list for psychological assessments can be upwards of two years, according to Barbetta.

“They won’t tell you how long the list is because it’s fluid,” she said. “Too many parents go outside the system and pay out of pocket to have it done.” That comes with a $2,000 price tag. Knowing I couldn’t afford that, I decided to seek help at the school. With homework in hand I talked to the teacher about James’ letter reversals. “We don’t really worry about that until Grade 3,” she said, despite the fact that she had recently recommended James be put in a remedial reading group. Frustrated with the system, because he was now halfway through Grade 2 and still having trouble, I began to look online for support. Enter Dale Carney, a Kanata resident whose son struggled with reading, writing and spelling. She took him out of the school system in Grade 3 and began homeschooling. It wasn’t until she met Susan Barton, an inductee into the International Dyslexia Association’s Hall of Honour, that she began to research dyslexia and related tutoring methods. It was from her Carney learned about the Orton-Gillingham method. The method of teaching is multi-sensory, kinesthetic, and phonics based. “It’s really about creating new neural pathways to decode language,” Carney said in our pre-testing interview. After the success with her own son, Carney, a former nurse, became certified as a dyslexia testing specialist. I brought her James’ schoolwork from kindergarten to the present day. She interviewed me; we went over his difficulties in school. James came back and sat with her for three hours; they went over phonetic awareness, working memory and his writing. He sat through the whole process patiently. “That was kind of fun mom,” he said. I received Carney’s report a few weeks later, it confirmed

my suspicions. Armed with the report, I went to the school. Carney said the earlier the problem is caught, the better for the learner, it’s a theory shared by Barbetta and many other people who see children with dyslexia on a regular basis. But both the Ottawa public and Catholic school boards insist there’s no need to worry until the third grade. At first the teacher wanted to talk about the 10-page report in 15 minutes. Weeks later, I managed to get a meeting with three teachers at the school – including the head of the resource department. I found out that James was meeting intermittently with a volunteer in the library for reading help. All of his teachers assured me he was very gifted and doing well. I was given a passage he wrote about damage from the perspective of a tornado. He used the words random destruction in the story. “Well then how come he can’t spell ‘away’ at home,” I thought. WHAT’S NEXT

Barbetta said the story is similar to the ones she’s heard from many parents. According to the Dyslexia Research Trust in Oxford, one of the strongest risk factors for dyslexia is having a close relative with reading problems, for example, having a family history of dyslexia. In Barbetta’s family all three of her children have some degree of dyslexia. So does her husband. Her son often attends the workshops she teaches. “He tells me ‘Mom, my eyes and brain tell me different things and I don’t know which one to trust,’” she said. Barbetta has paid out of pocket for psychological assessments for all her three children. It’s gotten so bad she refuses to buy school supplies.

“We have had to purchase computer software and cover the cost of assessments not covered by our insurance. I don’t send them to school with the stuff on the list anymore, I figure the school can supply it,” Barbetta said. The learning disabilities association provides support for parents of children with learning disabilities, helping them to navigate the public school boards to obtain help for their children. Barbetta said at times the work is frustrating and funding can be hard to find, but it’s worth it. “We also offer a list of local tutors and parent support group nights, because let’s face it, it’s hard,” she said. She said most parents just want their children to be happy and successful. “Can you imagine the pressure of attending school every day if you can’t do what’s expected of you?” she asked, adding many kids have anxiety. After my research was finished the picture was pretty grim. But there is a silver lining. Voice-to-text software and proven teaching methods exist to help children overcome the hurdles they have to face because of dyslexia. In Ottawa, there are two private schools available that deal with learning disabilities as part of the curriculum. I also learned it’s a learning disability often associated with creativity. According to the Canadian Dyslexia Association, George Bernard Shaw, Winston Churchill and Leonardo Da Vinci are some of the people believed to have had dyslexia. “You have to be smart to have a learning disability,” Barbetta said. Next week, Jennifer McIntosh examines the resources and barriers to helping children with dyslexia in Ottawa public and Catholic schools. In the third week, she will look at community supports and alternatives for education.

Caring and Sharing Exchange receives Trillium boost Ottawa West MPP Bob Chiarelli announces $28,500 grant Steph Willems Steph.willems@metroland

News - The services provided by Ottawa’s Caring and Sharing Exchange have never been in higher demand, meaning any outside help is greatly appreciated. On Aug. 29, Ottawa West MPP Bob Chiarelli announced a cash injection of $28,500 from The Ontario Trillium Foundation to help the organization in its city-wide efforts. “It is known as an organization that has provided services for back to school to assist families at Christmas time, but for the last several years they have engaged in a new service, which is coordinating services for over 300 Ottawa non-profit charitable organizations,” said Chiarelli, adding that the effort is designed to reduce duplication and streamline services. “In that regard, I understand they have been able to save organizations…more than $2 million over the last three or

four years, which is very significant. They are going very high tech, and using databases and technology to coordinate the services of the Ottawa area charitable groups.” To achieve this, the Caring and Sharing Exchange uses a platform called NetSuite. The Trillium cash will be put towards continuing and enhancing that database. On hand for the announcement was Marva Friday from Samaritan Support Services, a social services organization operating in Ottawa. “The databases at the time, (there were) problems,” said Friday. “This will help so much because we can get together, know what’s going on, see the master file and what is duplicated.” Families that rely on services provided by the many charities have been inconvenienced in the past because of this phenomenon, said Friday. Cindy Smith, executive director of the Caring and Shar-

ing Exchange, expressed her thanks on behalf of her board, partners and volunteers Her aim for the organization moving forward is simple. “We can just keep enhancing what we do, do it better and more efficiently,” said Smith. Erin Fitzpatrick, a social worker with the Southeast

Ottawa Community Health Centre, had arrived at the announcement on her way to pick up backpacks filled with school supplies for families living in her area. The backto-school help provided by the Caring and Sharing Exchange and its partners is crucial, she explained. “We start getting requests in June – demand is great,” she said, adding, “It’s basically an essential service.”

Habitat’s first aboriginal urban build shaping up Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

News - After raising two sons and a daughter, Ide Kakekagumick is doing it all again. The grandmother of three has been raising her two teenage grandsons and granddaughter since 2007 in Nepean. They were going back and forth between several homes, including in the city and on a nearby First Nations reserve. “They were bumped around,” Kakekagumick said of the children. “So this will be good and stable. I just want them to be happy and comfortable.” She applied for the Habitat for Humanity program because she wanted a steady home for Gage, 17, Donovan, 15, and Erica, 16, who she gained legal custody of in 2010. Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region CEO Donna Hicks said the family’s new home on Nantes Street in Orléans is the first aboriginal urban build for the region. Hicks said Habitat for Humanity is helping the aboriginal community because the next step after settling in a rental home in the city is home ownership. This week, local band chiefs and local aboriginal councils were scheduled to come to help out on the home build, and several of Kakekagumick’s co-workers at the Aboriginal Women’s Support Centre have already been on site to help. She’s worked at the centre for 11 years, and has been using all her accumulated vacation to work on the house. She’s also been volunteering at the Habitat retail ReStore with Gage, who is going into Grade 12. Every house has a dedication ceremony which incorporates each family’s religion or culture as much as possible, Hicks said. Kakekagu-

mick’s home will likely include a smudging ceremony and blessing of the house. Kakekagumick is hoping hoping the permanent, stable home for the teenagers will be good, and make post-secondary education a realistic future. They will be able to live at home, rent-free with their grandmother and travel to school in the city. The four-bedroom house they will move into on Nantes Street is semidetached home, with another Habitat family in the other half. Next door, in a single family home, is the third Habitat family moving to the build project. Originally, nine houses were slated for the lots, but the community disagreed with the density, and a compromise was made for the three homes. The two attached homes have one front door and one side door, so it looks like a single family home. Habitat provides the families seminars on things like financial planning and home repair, and monitors the families through the move to make sure maintenance like grass cutting and snow removal is being done. Kakekagumick was on the build site all last week, working on the home as it slowly starts to take shape. She can imagine where a few things are going to go, like her grandson’s weights in the basement, but said Erica is excited to set the full house up. “Ide was a good choice because she’s someone who was so caring for her grandchildren,” Hicks said, adding it’s a big responsibility for a woman in her 50s to take in three young teenagers. The family will be able to move in for the start of December, just in time to celebrate their first Christmas in the new home. Moving to Orléans will be a safe home for Kakekagumick and her

City rolls out new garbage disposal option on Elgin Hodge-podge bins a thing of the past: McRae Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The garbage disposal options for those out for a bite to eat or a stroll along Elgin Street have just become a little more organized after the city began a pilot project featuring new garbage containers. The bins allow waste to be sorted in three categories: garbage, recycling or paper. The pilot project will see 26 bins installed along the 14-block section of Elgin from Laurier Avenue to Catherine Street. Maria McRae, councillor for River Ward and chairwoman of the environment committee, Mayor Jim Watson and Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes tried out the new bins on Aug. 27 in front of city hall. “Recycling is a key component to the city’s waste diversion program,” McRae said. “These new bins will make it easy.” She referred to the current situation on Elgin as a “hodge-podge” and the new receptacles will be a huge improvement. The large metal contain-

ers are made of three interior sorting bins, inside of which will be clear plastic bags so the city’s public works department will be able to audit the trash -- all too ensure the project is working. The one-year pilot project will see the new bins placed along the street during the coming weeks. Watson said he was pleased with the new bins, adding that now residents will be able to recycle and sort garbage just like at home, adding he pilot will help the city determine the best way to implement this type of garbage bin throughout the city. But there is one difference from sorting at home and on Elgin - the new bins do not have a green bin option. According to public works, the green bin option was considered, but not added because of garbage audits from the street leading up to this pilot project, showed there was not enough organic material to warrant a separate container. Holmes agreed. The councillor said the street does have a lot of garbage issues, but organic material is not one of them. “I don’t see much food garbage left about,” Holmes said. “That food is left in the restaurants, even if you are picnicking, only small amounts end up in the garbage. I just don’t know it’s enough to make it

Fourteen new bins will be placed on the street from Laurier Avenue to Catherine Street. worthwhile to have a separate container and a separate service.” Holmes said the new bins along the street are a great improvement for an area with a number of lunch and dinner destinations with little options

to throw away the garbage which accumulates. The councillor said the garbage pile up on the street is of concern to her and area residents, especially because Elgin Street, unlike Somerset Street West and Bank Street,

does not have a business improvement group to help out. “Many other streets in my ward have BIAs who provide recycling and garbage bins,” she said. “So really this is useful for Elgin, which does not have its own BIA.”

The councillor added she does have some concern about the cross-contamination within the receptacles. “We have to make sure it’s not all lost (because of crosscontamination), that they do their job,” Holmes said.

Star Wars museum exhibit gets extension Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - If there are any fans out there who have yet to check out a unique exhibition from a galaxy far, far away, there is still time before Star Wars Identities lifts off for good. The exhibition was scheduled to close on Sept. 2, but the Canada Aviation and Space Museum has extended it until Oct. 14, due to popular demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the first time that CASM has hosted such a blockbuster exhibition, and it has proven to be a successful experience,â&#x20AC;? said Fernand Proulx, acting president of the museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Faced with strong demand from a public that is clearly won over by the Star Wars universe and its charactersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; strong identities, we have decided to extend the exhibitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stay in Ottawa until Oct. 14.â&#x20AC;? The museum showcase features characters from the famous film series, including Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Yoda as well as Anakin Skywalkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-sized podracer, offering both old and new fans of the films the chance to explore what forces shape the person or species you become. Created by Montrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s X3 Productions in collaboration

Michaela Hawdur, Chelsea Frake and Rachael Mombourquette hang out with a couple of characters at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum on March 20. The museum launched its summer exhibition, Star Wars Identities, which will open on May 10. with Lucasfilm Ltd., the exhibition first appeared at the Montreal Science Centre in the spring of 2012. It has since travelled to western Canada, and opened in the capital this past May. X3 Productions collaborated with the MontrĂŠal Sci-

ence Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team of experts in a variety of fields to build the exhibition. Jacques-AndrĂŠ Dupont, president and executive producer of X3 Productions, said the teamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; knowledge and expertise have shaped the exhibitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structure and

their input has been essential in developing its scientific and educational content. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This exhibition offers a fresh perspective on the beloved characters of Star Wars,â&#x20AC;? Dupont said at the exhibition launch in April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a deeper under-

standing of their identities, and, at the same time, we get a deeper understanding of our own ...Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a character-driven adventure into identity.â&#x20AC;? Exploring the complex notion of identity in both the real world and in the films, X3 Productions sought to

shed light on each of the components of identity. The exhibition divides the study of the characters from the movies identity into three major themes: the origins of the characters, the influences that shape them, and the choices they make during their life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by looking at these charactersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; identity that patrons will have the chance to learn about the components which make up their own human identities, such as species, genes, parents, and culture. There are many fun aspects to the new exhibit including a making-of featurettes which explore the stories behind the development of many iconic Star Wars characters and explain how they became who they are, and how different creative choices could have made them different characters altogether. There are also interactive identity quests, scientific content and the chance to follow Luke and Anakin Skywalker through their journey. Online ticket sales for the exhibition are available; as well visitors can begin their identity adventure online at starwarsidentities.com. Adult tickets are $23 and children are $13.25.

84-year-old cancer survivor to Ride the Rideau Ottawa resident to cycle 100-km in fourth-annual event for hospital Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Sports - An 84-year-old Kitchissippi man is preparing to cycle 100 kilometres for the hospital that has given him so much. Irwin Waldman has battled cancer multiple times and the Ottawa Hospital is an organization close to his heart. Waldman will cycle from Ottawa to Merrickville as part of the fourth-annual Ride the Rideau event. “I’ve been cleared for five years now, but I still get checked regularly,” Waldman said. “The hospital has done something for me and I’d like to do something for it in return.” Waldman was first diagnosed with bladder cancer in the 1980s while he was living in Montreal. It was caught early and he had three tumours removed. “My presumption was, at the time, was that’s done,” he

said. “A few years later when I moved to Ottawa, lo and behold these malignant cells are growing in my bladder again.” He underwent three more surgeries and drug treatments and has been clear for five years, but Waldman doesn’t consider himself a cancer survivor. “I go back every year to get checked out,” he said. “I don’t really look at it as being a survivor.” Waldman, who is also a member of the Ottawa Bicycle Club, leads an active lifestyle. He said he follows “the big three” when it comes to keeping fit: flexibility, which requires stretching, muscle toning by lifting weights, and cardiovascular health. He uses his bike for everyday errands like grocery shopping and visiting his local library. When he’s training, he’ll take his bike across the river or through back-roads in the city.

“I use either long rides in the flats, like Osgoode, Cumberland, past Kanata, or if I want to overload, then I go to the Gatineau (Park). It’s my playground,” he said. “In Gatineau Park, there I’ve got some formidable hills.” Waldman, who is a grandfather, has participated in the 100-km ride since the inaugural event. This year, Home Instead Senior Care – a local organization with offices in Kanata and the Glebe – is sponsoring Waldman. “Mr. Waldman is everything we all aspire to be in our senior years,” said Lesley Sullivan, owner of Home Instead Senior Care “He is physically active and healthy, and contributing to society rather than letting the years go by. Many of our clients and caregivers are living with cancer, so in addition to supporting Mr. Waldman, we are also supporting the Ottawa Hospital Foundation and cancer research. “We decided that this was a worthy cause, based on the community of seniors we support.” Tracey Tong, spokeswoman for the Ottawa Hospital Foun-

dation, said Waldman illustrates how people of any age can get involved to raise funds for cancer research. “At 84, he is our oldest rider and he’s a three-time cancer survivor to boot. He is truly an inspiration to us,” she said. “Mr. Waldman shows us that people of all ages can make a difference in the fight against cancer. “And he’s not alone. We have 36 cancer survivors signed up to ride so far, and they are an inspiration to all of us.” RIDE THE RIDEAU

Ride the Rideau has raised more than $4.4 million for the Ottawa Hospital. Last year saw around 700 cyclists participate, bringing in $1.7 million. This year, with the addition of a 50-km option, organizers are expecting more than 800 riders to join the cause on Sept. 7. “It’s nice cycling with a bunch of people,” said Waldman, adding he enjoys the people “hooting and hollering and giving encouragement” along the route. His wife, Elsa, will be waving him on as he crosses the finish line. “It’s fun to wave him in and he was always very excited about it,” she said. “(The event is) a great thing for him and he loves that. “He just started living after he retired. He couldn’t wait to retire. He could do all those things he wanted to do. That’s what everybody should do, enjoy their retirement, make good use of it.” The Waldmans keep active with round dancing lessons – a choreographed ballroom-style dance similar to line dancing – and cycle together when the opportunity arises. They’ve travelled together through

Irwin Waldman, 84, has battled cancer multiple times. The Kitchissippi resident is preparing to Ride the Rideau for the fourth time to raise funds for the Ottawa Hospital. Europe and most recently returned from a Baltic cruise. “It’s nice to keep active at this stage; you have to really, otherwise what else is there?” asked Elsa. “They’re memories I’ll take with me to the grave; just indescribable, really.” Waldman plans to continue cycling in the Ride the Rideau event for years to come. Next year, he said he’d like to get together a group of “golden oldies” to cycle and fundraise together. “If they help the hospital which helps them, then they

BACK TO SCHOOL & 2013 FALL REGISTRATION

Finding the right backpack for school days Lifestyle - The purchase of a backpack at the beginning of a new school year is an important one. When kids tote books and gear back and forth from school, their backs can suffer the consequences, including muscle strain that induces headaches and sore necks. Here are a few rules to follow to help your child avoid backpack-related health problems. The quality of the backpack is much more important than a fashionable brand name. Backpacks have to be replaced often because of the changing size of their owners, and

since they will likely only be used for a year or two, there’s no need to pay astronomical prices. Make sure your child’s backpack is the appropriate size for their height. It shouldn’t exceed the width of the child’s back, nor the height of the shoulders. Packs that are too big can cause back problems because of improper distribution of weight through the straps. Even for an older child, accompany him to choose a backpack so you can make sure it fits. The backpack must be well-

adjusted, fitting closely to the child’s back. It should be attached high on the shoulders and be equipped with padded straps large enough to spread the weight evenly. In addition, the straps should always be easy to adjust. If the bag has plenty of compartments, your child will be able to spread the weight evenly throughout the backpack and reduce discomfort in the back and shoulders. The most important thing is to not overload the backpack, which should only be used to carry essential items back and forth to school.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all unite to eradicate bullying Lifestyle - According to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, at least one Canadian teenager out of three can tell stories about what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to be a victim of bullying at school. Other Canadian studies show that bullying occurs every seven minutes in the playground and every 25 minutes in the classroom. Do these statistics shock you? Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a student, parent, or educator, you have a role to play in putting an end to bullying. TYPES OF BULLYING

Bullying is not only about pushing people around or calling them names. There are in fact four principal types of bullying, and being able to identify them is a ďŹ rst step in the ďŹ ght to eradicate this scourge. Verbal bullying includes insults, sarcasms, teasing, the spreading of rumours, threats, inappropriate sexual comments, and slurs about culture, race, religion, gender, or sexual-orientation. Social bullying includes group threats, making a scapegoat of someone, exclusion, public humiliation, and demeaning grafďŹ ti. Physical bullying includes hitting, pushing,

ÂŽ

pinching, hounding, jostling, stealing or destroying possessions, and sexual touching of an undesirable nature. Cyberbullying includes using the Internet or text messaging to bully, humiliate, make fun of, or circulate rumours about someone. Just as there are many forms of bullying, there are also many devastating effects. Victims can experience an inordinate amount of insecurity, distress, withdrawal, isolation, fear, stress, anxiety, loss of self-conďŹ dence, and nightmares. Some victims can also feel physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches, nausea, fatigue, and panic attacks. Bullying can even lead to academic problems, including dropping out of school. In a few cases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and only one case is too many â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the pain caused by bullying can cause the victim to consider committing suicide. No one should have to feel wounded or humiliated or live in fear or isolation. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all unite to eradicate bullying. Are you, or one of your friends, a victim of bullying? Is your child a victim, or perhaps even the bully? Several resources are available to you, including Kids Help Phone at 1-800668-6868 or www.kidshelpphone.ca.

Lifestyle - At the beginning of a new school year, all parents of teenagers worry that their children will start hanging around with a new group of friends and get involved with drugs. Here are a few signs and symptoms that allow parents to react promptly if this should happen: â&#x20AC;˘ New friendships, dropping marks, and frequent absences from school. â&#x20AC;˘ More secretive behaviour about their possessions, activities, or movements. â&#x20AC;˘ Changes of clothing style and the wearing of clothes that evoke the drug culture. â&#x20AC;˘ The use of incense or deodorizing products, which are often used to camouďŹ&#x201A;age suspicious odours. â&#x20AC;˘ Consistent demands for more pocket money than usual. â&#x20AC;˘ Disappearing medications from the medicine cabinet and the frequent use of eye drops, which are often used to conceal red eyes or dilated pupils. Have a frank conversation with your child if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed one or more of these signs. Tell him or her about what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed and ask for an explanation for the changes in behaviour and habits. It is also acceptable to meet with the principal and school counsellor as well as your family doctor. More information can be obtained by visiting reliable Internet sites dedicated to the prevention of drug addiction.

Lifestyle - Fall can be an expensive time of year. Back to school fashions and cool weather requirements mean stocking up the wardrobe. To keep things fresh and interesting for your children, all while taking care of your budget, be a resourceful shopper. First of all, check to see what you can keep for another fall before you replace everything, especially fall jackets, hat and mitt sets, and sweaters. Stylists suggest taking a good look at summer clothes before putting them away until next year. Some summer items are suitable for coordinating with fall clothing. Belts or accessories, for example, can be worn with warmer textured, winter fabrics. For a fall look that makes sense, keep it to 30 percent light, colourful, or flowered items for 70 percent of winter clothes. Before hitting the stores, make a list of the key clothing items you will need. These can be used as basics that can be coordinated with just about anything else. Staples for your family’s wardrobe might include a well-cut black jacket for teenage boys, neutral coloured pants for little boys, and allpurpose grey leggings for little girls.

Britannia: a slice of cottage life in the city Alex Quevillon

Community - If a visitor were to take a 20-minute drive from the busy downtown core of Ottawa, or a 10-minute walk from the fast-paced Richmond Road, or an even shorter walk from the notoriously hostile Ritchie-Ramsey intersection, they might find the most peaceful scene that the Nation’s Capital has to offer. With the exception of the odd OC Transpo bus, all they would hear is the sound of the water, birds flying overhead, or a bike’s wheels turning. For those who live here, it’s not an exaggeration to say Britannia is a little slice of cottage life in the heart of the city. It is made all the more so by the presence of the impressive 126 yearold Britannia Yacht Club. With the community’s history dating back to 1818, the Yacht Club, founded in 1887, was synonymous with Britannia’s evolution. “It’s basically a cottage without the drive,” says Yacht Club Public Relations Director Dan Delorey. “It’s only a 15, 20-minute drive for most people. Sometimes, we’ll spend a full weekend here and not even leave the harbor.” Although there’s a long history of sailing, not every pastime offered by the club is water-based. “We’ve had tennis courts here since 1926, and we’ve had national tennis

championships play and practice here,” says Delorey. The bar at the Yacht Club also features several plaques and autographed photos of track-and-field athletes they’ve supported, including some who went as high as the Olympic level. Delorey has been with the club for five years, but had no problem fitting in with members dating back several decades. He adds that financial status shouldn’t dictate who joins the club. “Many folks have the opinion that only the rich sail, but that’s far from the truth. For some, they just want to have that cottage feel, and buying a boat and spending a weekend on it at the Yacht Club is a lot cheaper than buying a cottage and the upkeep of a cottage. “We’re interested in having anybody join our club, whether they’re interested in sailing, or just want to be a part of the social aspect here. We’re not too worried about who people are.” Iris ten Holder, who moved to Ottawa 56 years ago from the Netherlands, isn’t a part of the Yacht Club, but says she and her neighbors support the establishment and the way it helps offer a cottage feel to the area. Its people like ten Holder that make up the heart of this community, people who have worked to get where they are today and appreciate the laid-back life. “We have potlucks and little gettogethers all the time,” she recalls.

“Nothing huge; maybe 20 or 30 people.” Ten Holder’s home isn’t the largest, but it’s proportionate to the rest of the homes on her street – and was suitable to raise five children at once. There are four separate million-dollar homes between ten Holder’s house and the Yacht Club, but the area is also populated with plenty of bungalows, and older, smaller houses. She can remember a time when a house could be bought on her street for $1,000. The newer homes, however, are a neighbourhood boon, says real estate agent Bob Blake. “Those types of homes elevate the value of everything in the village,” says Blake, who has been in the real estate business for 26 years in Ottawa. “There are no two of the same megahouses, which is neat as well.” “Westboro Village is a shopping sort of village, whereas Britannia has a more seaside feel to it,” he adds. For anybody looking to find a naturally beautiful habitat, this is where it will be found. “It’s right on the water front, and it backs onto the Mud Lake conservation land. It’s fairly desirable. It has a real outdoor feel. In recent years, Britannia has suddenly become recognized as a spot to be. “Whenever I’m selling a home, and people are looking at high-end areas like Wellington, they’re really wowed

when I suggest Britannia, and how calming and breezy it can feel.” The last home Blake sold in the area was to a couple in their mid-30s, and he figures that’s probably one of his youngest buyers in the area. And while this isn’t the type of area that comes across as a blue-collar community, for someone like ten Holder who takes pride in hard work, it provides the perfect canvas. “I grew up working and making things with my hands, from about the age of six to this day.” She described a number of artistic woodwork projects she did in her earlier years. In the back of her Britannia Road studio, a quick walk about three blocks from her home, she has even built a deck that she hopes can someday be used as an outdoor theatre. It’s that ability to mix hard-nosed woodwork with the tranquil outdoor scenery is what makes anyone appreciate this type of setting that much more. Passers-by may believe this reflects the predominance of an older demographic. But Bay Ward Councillor Mark Taylor understands that many current residents grew up with the neighbourhood in its earliest days. That will change. “I’m sure you’ll see a fair amount of turnover for sure in the next 10, 20 years, as the people who are there leave for whichever reason. I think the average age of the people moving in will

likely stay the same. “There are a few things in play,” he says. “We have an aging population in general, so the average age of a home buyer is going to go up. The other thing you have to keep in mind is that given the nature of the houses in Britannia, many of them are quite expensive and again, it’s going to be more, older families who can afford to move in there. For many folks just starting off, it’s out of their price range.” The councillor hopes that with the turnover that’s to come, many people consider Britannia and the Bay Ward as a place to live and raise a family. “We have a community that’s for everyone,” he adds. “If you were to move here, you have a nice area, natural resources, and fully developed social networks. It’s a complete community. “It certainly fulfills its name of being a village. It does feel like you’ve left the city and gone to some water front.” Indeed, joggers, hikers, bicyclists and walkers are there every morning, and at dusk a visitor will see the most beautiful sunset the city has to offer. Visit at night and they’ll hear nothing but the water.

Captain Fantastic glams into Centrepointe Theatre Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

ENTERTAINMENT - A six-piece Ottawa band is following the Yellow Brick Road to fame. The Captain Fantastic band is heading to Centrepointe Theatre’s studio stage on Oct. 19. Frontman Donnie Leafloor has been mimicking the Rocket Man for nearly two decades. He started his career at with a steady gig at the Marshy’s bar at the Canadian Tire Centre. “The Marshy’s closed and it presented me with an opportunity,” Leafloor said. “I have always been a huge Elton John fan and the highest honour is a tribute band.” Armed with a dream, Leafloor said he met with Pat Robillard – who now serves as backup vocalist and guitarist for the band – with the idea. “He loved it, and it just kind of ballooned from there,” Leafloor said. The rest of the musicians, Michel André Farmer on percussion, Campbell Douglas on keyboard, Denis St-Amour on bass and mandolin and Jack Pelletier, who plays assorted electric guitars, were all handpicked by Leafloor. “There’s an amazing amount of talent,” he said. The sextet prefers to play at soft-seated theatres. Leafloor said the typical crowd can include up to 500 fans. “I think our favourite venue would be the NAC,” Leafloor said, adding the October show at Centrepointe will be the group’s first time performing in the new studio theatre. The band typically takes a break from performing during the summer, but Leafloor says they get back into the swing of things with festivals and fairs in the fall. Before they play Centrepointe, the Captain Fantastic Band is set to play a festival in Stirling,

Donnie Leafloor is set to perform as the Magic Man at the Centrepointe Theatre on Oct. 19. Ont. And while the set lists are pretty tight, Leafloor said he likes to have fun on stage. “I play the bigger hits for the audience but I also play some of the more obscure ones for me,” he said. “In our show, you never know what’s going to happen. We try and keep it light. Even though I might be playing the same song for the 200th time I don’t feel it.” A typical set list takes the audience through the early Tin Pan Alley days to Elton John’s most recent hits. Tickets for the show are available for $27.50 at www.centrepointetheatre.com.

News - Cancer screening can save lives. No one knows this better than Marie Robertson. The Centretown resident and community developer for the Ottawa Senior Pride Network was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 1979. “As I was only 27 when I had my cancer surgery, let’s just say the next decade was stressful,” she said in an email interview. “I started getting mammograms in my 40s. I started getting screened for colon cancer when I turned 50. As a cancer survivor, I think I was more aware of cancer as an issue.” But not everyone is aware of the need for, or has access to, health check-ups. Cancer screening hasn’t been promoted in a way that speaks to members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) community, said Robertson. “In fact, there has been a lot of mythology regarding screening such as the message that lesbians don’t need to be screened for cervical cancer,” said Robertson. “If you have a cervix, you need to get regular pap smears – it’s as simple as that. And older lesbians need to be screened for breast and colon cancer.” To combat the issue, the Canadian Cancer Society launched its Screening Saves Lives program, reaching out to Ottawa’s LGBTQ community about the importance of colon, breast and cervical cancers screening during Capital Pride on Aug. 25. “Just as the name says, screening saves lives. It saved my life. If I hadn’t been getting yearly screening as a young woman, I might not be here today,” said Robertson, whose organization is a partner of the program. “I’m 60 years old now and have been very healthy for many years.” Screening Saves Lives aims to increase cancer screening rates in “hard-to-reach communities,” which includes LGBTQ, First Nations and South Asian communities. “LGBTQ communities are much less likely to be regularly screened for colon, breast and cervical cancers, putting them at greater risk of dying from cancer,” said Susan Flynn, manager of Screening Saves Lives. “Ottawa has such a vibrant LGBTQ community which is why we’re at Capital Pride this week to provide information and encourage LGBTQ individuals to talk to their doctor about getting screened.” According to the Canadian Cancer Society: • Bisexual women are significantly less likely to get a mammogram. The Canadian Community Health Survey found that only 49 per cent of bisexual women ages 50 to 59 have had a mammogram in the past two years compared to 71 per cent of heterosexual women. • The LGBTQ population in Canada faces significant barriers to achieving health because their health needs are poorly understood and because health-care institutions may not be inclusive or welcoming to them. • LGBTQ communities experience multiple risk factors for developing cancer, such as higher smoking rates, being less likely to have a family doctor and stress from discrimination. • Cancer screening can save lives. For example, colon cancer is 90 per cent curable if caught early. Kevin Linn, senior co-ordinator of Screening Saves Lives, said there are many barriers they are hearing of that prevent the LGBTQ com-

Marie Robertson, community developer for the Ottawa Senior Pride Network, was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 1979. Now a cancer survivor, Robertson is working with the Canadian Cancer Society to help spread awareness of its new program, Screening Saves Lives, which is reaching out to Ottawa’s LGBTQ community. munity from seeking cancer screenings. A big one is the lack of messaging directed to the community, he said. So the program is reaching out to health-care providers to “better train them to serve the LGBTQ community,” as well as creating advertising and messaging directed towards individuals and couples. “I love the poster campaign that Kevin’s group has created and I think it will be effective in creating discussion in the older LGBT community. Discussion increases people’s awareness and increased awareness means more screening,” said Robertson. “There has also been far too much homophobia amongst health-care providers which has resulted in LGBT people not getting regular medical check-ups, never mind cancer screening.” HEALTH AMBASSADORS NEEDED

The Canadian Cancer Society is looking for members of LGBTQ communities who want to get involved in promoting the importance of screening to apply to become volunteer health ambassadors. Screening Saves Lives will train volunteers to deliver cancer screening messages to friends, family, and members of their social networks. “This type of program works because, as health ambassadors are trusted members of the community, they can communicate with peers in a way that large organizations often can’t,” said Flynn. “Health ambassadors are able to change the attitudes of their peers by using appropriate language, sharing personal stories and experiences and by building trust and personal relationships.” Anyone interesting in volunteering or learning more is asked to contact Linn at klinn@ontario.cancer.ca or call 613-723-1744 ext. 3607. “Peer promotion of cancer screening is one of the best ways to promote uptake of cancer screening,” said Linn. The program also launched two new websites, cancer.ca/getscreened and a Facebook page, facebook.com/LGBTQgetscreened.

New website to promote safe drinking

Regis

Ottawa-area university, colleges participate in new program News - A new website to promote safer drinking habits for postsecondary students has been launched just in time for the return of classes this fall. The Safer Ottawa Drinking Alliance addresses unsafe drinking among students and promotes safe habits when it comes to consuming alcohol with a new website, SODAottawa.ca. Partnering with three postsecondary institutions, Algonquin College, La CitĂŠ collĂŠgiale and the University of Ottawa Health Services, the alliance offers students the opportunity to â&#x20AC;&#x153;check your drinking,â&#x20AC;? read Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low-risk alcohol drinking guidelines as well as links to more resources. Sandra McCormick from Algonquin College is the lead project coordinator for the organization said she is looking forward to working with the other institutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With help from our partners, we will strive to create a culture of safer alcohol use for students in the Ottawa area,â&#x20AC;? McCormick said. Alongside the three postsecondary institutions the alliance has partnered with, there are eight community organizations that are also participating in the new program. Those partners are the Ottawa Public Health,

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, ByWard Market event planners OttawaVenues. com, Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, Mothers Against Drunk Driving Ottawa, the Ontario Provincial Police and Ottawa police and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pleased to see that our postsecondary institutions are taking unsafe drinking practices and the impact on their students seriously by addressing this important issue,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Isra Levy, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical officer of health. According to Levy, in 2011 73 per cent of Ottawa adult males and 48 per cent of Ottawa adult females ages 19-24 years reported heavy drinking, which carries serious short- and longterm health risks. He said that same year, there were more than 700 alcohol related paramedic responses involving youth and young adults aged 15 to 29 in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to ensure young adults are informed about the dangers and health risks of excessive drinking,â&#x20AC;? Levy added. The organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first awareness campaign will begin this fall, with the focus on encouraging students to measure their own alcohol intake. The awareness campaign intends to employ social media and contests to keep students engaged in the discussion of drinking safely.

     Keeping us connected with everything and everyone, our ability to hear is priceless. Unfortunately, one in ten of us suffer from hearing loss. If ignored, even the slightest hearing loss has signiďŹ cant consequences. You become disconnected from your world as loved ones become mumblers and asking to repeat becomes a nuisance. Your safety and independence is compromised. You risk misdiagnoses and diminishing cognitive abilities. Indeed, untreated or improperly treated hearing loss has a pronounced negative impact on your quality of life. Consulting the appropriate hearing healthcare provider, in the most independent setting, is crucial. Privately owned and operated by Doctor of Audiology Rosanne McNamee, Hearing Solutions Clinic adopts a unique and refreshing approach to patient care which differs drastically with that of retail settings, larger clinics and manufacturer owned chains. When you walk into Hearing Solutions Clinic, there are no crowded waiting rooms, commission staff or sales tactics. Rather, you will feel at home as you are greeted in an environment with old fashion roots where the focus is personalized hearing healthcare, not hearing aid sales. From your very ďŹ rst visit, you become part of a team working together to reach one goal: to meet your hearing needs. Hearing Solutions Clinic is large enough to offer amazing professional services and products, yet small enough to devote all the time necessary for uncompromised customized care. You will get top quality, integrity, and no shortcuts. Based on past experiences at other hearing clinics, patients are often pleasantly surprised by not only the thoroughness, attentiveness and inclusiveness at Hearing Solutions Clinic, but also the product selection. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Our patients are our top priority. We will never limit their hearing device options as others doâ&#x20AC;? says Rosanne.â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;We remain

independent so that all makes and models may be sold and serviced.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This enables Hearing Solutions Clinic to better meet your unique hearing needs, and at a competitive price because Hearing Solutions Clinic doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the enormous overhead of larger clinics nor does it have investors to please. Rosanne further distinguishes herself from the other clinics by solely hiring professionals that are regulated and hold the highest level of education in the hearing healthcare ďŹ eld. There are no Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Solutions Clinic, only Audiologists who are diligent at keeping the clinic up-to-date in technology and practice. They are qualiďŹ ed to service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WSIB, DVA, ACSD, etc). In addition, Rosanne protects the special quality of her clinic by ensuring that all employees share the core values, beliefs and principles that created Hearing Solutions Clinic over a decade ago. Consequently, you receive the service of professionals who are not only top in their ďŹ eld, but who pride themselves on offering quality products and the highest standard of care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hearing is complex and so are todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing aids,â&#x20AC;? Rosanne explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dealing with the most qualiďŹ ed health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; At Hearing Solutions Clinic you will never worry whether or not you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs. So, if you believe in your right to the best, fullest and most customized service available, book your consultation with an Audiologist at Hearing Solutions Clinic. There are two convenient locations to serve you. Parking is free! Home visits optional.

BRIDGING COMMUNITIES Ward 22 Update

Steve Desroches Deputy Mayor Councillor, Gloucester-South Nepean LATIN AMERICA HERITAGE DAY It was my honour to attend the 4th Annual Latin American Heritage Day at the Shenkman Theatre earlier this month to proclaim August 17th, 2013 as Latin American Heritage Day in the City of Ottawa. This year’s festivities highlighted the cultures and features of Argentina, Cuba and the Dominican Republic and the history and contributions of Latin American immigrants to Canada and Ottawa. It was my honour to help present awards and recognize the outstanding contributions and achievements of selected members of the Latin American community for their volunteer work within our community or, in the case of students, their academic results. DONATION TO BARRHAVEN LEGION FROM MOLSON COORS It was an honour to participate in last week’s cheque presentation from Molson Coors Canada to the Barrhaven Branch 641 of the Royal Canadian Legion at their Fallowfield Road headquarters. Molson Coors generously donated $10,000 to the Barrhaven Branch to help cover the cost of a new air conditioning unit for their facility. I was happy to join Legion member Jason Kelly, Molson Coors Representative Kyle Robertson, and Barrhaven Legion President Dave Sereda in accepting the donation. THE ATHLETIC CLUB COMING TO BARRHAVEN I am pleased to report that The Athletic Club has submitted plans to the City to construct a new facility at the corner of Crestway Drive and Strandherd Drive in the Chapman Mills area, opposite the commercial plaza currently under construction. This is a very exciting project for the residents of Barrhaven. I am happy to see continued economic progress in our community, especially when it includes the potential to allow residents to live, work, and play in their own backyard. The proposed 3,484 m2 facility would provide 384 parking spaces on the 1.84 hectare lot. If approved, the new facility is expected to begin construction in 2014. EMMA JACKSON/METROLAND

Fierce competition Sophie rumbles down Beaverwood Road as part of Manotick’s annual soapbox derby on Sunday, Aug. 25. Dozens of kids raced for glory near the arena, looking to claim this year’s title. Kids also competed for design and decoration awards.

The Athletic Club’s facilities are state-of-the-art and are staffed with knowledgeable fitness professionals. Their motto, “Striving to make our community a healthier place,” is a perfect fit for the Barrhaven community. This new athletic facility will provide the residents of Barrhaven another active living centre and it is a great addition for this community. COURTS OF BARRHAVEN It was my honour to attend a special luncheon at the Court of Barrhaven with Mayor Watson last week to celebrate the facility’s 10th Anniversary. It was great to see everyone again and enjoy some light conversation over lunch. The Mayor and I were happy to speak with the residents and present 10th Anniversary pins to residents who have been living at the facility since it opened. I always look forward to the next opportunity to spend time with the residents of the Court of Barrhaven!

Final Race Weekend Party with entertainment by

statues of the Buddha are stationed at the front of the room behind a long, yellow table. Fruit arrangements are set out at regular intervals across the altar, and the smell of incense wafts among the gathering crowd. The Ottawa Amitabha Buddhist Society officially opened its permanent temple at the corner of Bank and Lawrence Streets in Vernon on Saturday, Aug. 24 and welcomed community members to celebrate their 10th anniversary with them on Sunday, Aug. 25. The group is grateful to be part of the community, said member Annie Tam, and wants to get to know its neighbours. “We’re trying to attract the neighbours to come and see us,” Tam said. “We welcome them to come.” The congregation began renovating Vernon’s old general store several months ago after a member purchased the building and gave it to the association to use for their regular services. “We took this opportunity to renovate this place so we can have a permanent place,” Tam said. The group used to hold its weekly services at the Bronson Centre downtown Ottawa. The temple’s renovations are still ongoing; as of Aug. 25 only the sanctuary was ready for visitors. The centre’s kitchen, library and guest rooms for visiting dignitaries are all still under construction. Volunteers have borne the brunt of the labour; every weekend members have driven out to Vernon from across the city to help with the construction. To cut costs, members have scrounged for second-hand materials and donations to help furnish the facility, Tam added. And they have benefitted from the help of their new Vernon neighbours. Gary Briggs, local resident and president of the Osgoode Township Historical Society across the street, offered his assistance from the beginning. “When you see your neighbours working the natural thing is to ask if they need a hand,” Briggs said. When

he caught one of the monks digging at the back step, he brought his tractor over to help with the job. He and several other community members also gave the group advice on fixing their well and septic system. “He was such a gentleman,” Tam said. “The local people are so nice; they are so helpful.” Briggs was one of a handful of locals who showed up to Sunday’s ceremony, which was led by the association’s president Master Falong who travelled from China to help dedicate the new temple. The anniversary service began with an enthusiastic rendition of O Canada. Briggs said the entire lecture was then translated from Mandarin into English for the few non-Buddhist visitors sitting in the front row. “It was just a really, really nice thing to do for the whole community,” he said. “I hope the community understands what an opportunity this is for some cross-cultural exchange.” Briggs acknowledged that when he first heard of the coming temple several months ago, he was surprised – something he addressed in a brief speech during the ceremony. Most of his neighbours were surprised as well, but Briggs said the community should be pleased to have new people around. Diversity aside, an organization like this will simply bring new business to town, he said. “We don’t have a lot of people moving here to the community,” he said. “They’re bringing business for plumbers and people like that.” Briggs added that the congregation is just like any other church or religious group in the area. “Their philosophy is about peace and getting along and helping others,” he said. “I hope they’ll be accepted like any neighbour or business in the community. That’s going to be a hub of the community.” Tam said the temple’s weekend services are open to everyone, and she hopes to plan some larger activities for the congregation and guests in the future.

Gees-Gees back at Lees Stadium for home opener Official field opening, barbecue to be held Sept. 7 Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The Gee-Gees are heading back their home turf for the football team’s home opener. After last year’s relocation to a field 40 minutes outside of Ottawa -- Beckwith field in Carleton Place -- the University of Ottawa’s football team will return to a new field on Lees Avenue for a game against the University of Toronto on Sept. 7 at 1 p.m. The team was moved out of Lansdowne Park when the reconstruction of Frank Clair Stadium began last year. Then last August the city and the university formed a partnership to build the $8 million facility located at 200 Lees Ave. The project aimed to increase the number of sports and recreation programs available for students and residents living in wider community, with 10,000 hours each year available to rent. According to the university, this new sports facility will be the first time in more than 120 years the football team will play games on the university campus. Construction was to have been completed last November, but a series of delays has meant the project took a year to finish. The home opener will feature extra festivities this year as the university plans to also officially open the field with an event to welcome local dignitaries and residents to the new field. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said he is excited for the team to be back, and is looking forward to the first home game. “I plan to be at the game, I still have to buy tickets, but I am a big football fan,” he said. Fleury added that he hopes area residents also come out to the game. “It’s an opportunity for residents to enjoy good football. I think as residents it’s a great chance to see local sports and it’s about supporting local sports,” he said. Along with a home opener, Fleury said, comes many students and fans through the Sandy Hill community and because of that, his staff has been working closely with the university to ensure things like foot traffic and garbage along the Rideau River pathway and noise in the neighbourhood do not get out of hand. He said he would like to see garbage cans along the pathway to limit the amount of cleanup would need to happen after the game.

MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND

The Gee-Gees field is ready and waiting for its team to come home on Sept. 7. The game will also be the University of Ottawa’s official opening of the new sports field at 200 Lees Ave. Action Sandy Hill, the area’s community association has also been proactively informing its residents about the upcoming event, including posting information on its website, ash-acs. ca. Before the game, barbecue and beer garden will take place in the rear courtyard behind the stadium, which will open at 11 a.m. and will serve food and alcohol until the fourth quarter. There will be no public parking at 200 Lees Ave. on game days. Three parking lots will be made available on the university’s campus, with a complimentary shuttle running from Minto Sports Complex to the stadium. The Gee-Gees will take on local rivals the Carleton Ravens on Oct. 5. Fleury said his office is working at ensuring if any improvements can be made for how the university hosts home games will be fixed by this game. The university’s students federation will not be hosting a specific event for the game, but will have a table set up at the game to promote and hand out information about the association.

Apple pecan cake with apple butter glaze easy to make Lifestyle - Apple butter and chopped apples make for a moist, easy-to-put-together cake. Despite its name, apple butter is fat free. The term ‘butter’ refers to the thick, soft consistency and its use as a spread for toast, bagels, waffles or pancakes. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Baking time: 30 to 35 minutes. Serves eight to 10 people. INGREDIENTS

Cake • 500 ml (2 cups) all-purpose flour • 10 ml (2 tsp) baking powder • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) each baking soda, salt and ground nutmeg • 2 eggs, lightly beaten • 125 ml (1/2 cup) packed brown sugar • 125 ml (1/2 cup) apple butter • 50 ml (1/4 cup) each vegetable oil and plain low-fat yogurt • 2 medium apples, peeled and diced (about 500ml/2 cups) Glaze • 175 ml (3/4 cup) apple butter

(approximately) • 25 ml (2 tbsp) chopped toasted pecans (optional) PREPARATION

Line a two-litre (nine-inch) round cake pan with a circle of parchment paper. Brush the side of the pan with vegetable oil. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. In a small bowl, beat together the eggs, brown sugar, apple butter, oil and yogurt and then stir in apples. Stir these ingredi-

ents into the dry mixture until moistened. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let it cool in the pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Run a thin spatula around the edge of the cake then invert it onto the wire rack to cool completely. Invert the cake onto a serving plate. Glaze: Spread apple butter evenly over cake, then sprinkle with pecans, if you are using them.

Safety first Above, Tom Clark, safety assistant with Stock Transportation, a bus company that operates in Greely, shows a group of soon-to-be kindergarteners how to safely cross the road after leaving their school bus at St. Mark Catholic High School in Manotick. The safety awareness day on Sunday, Aug. 25, was held at six schools across the city, organized by the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority: Woodroffe High School, Sir Wilfried Laurier Secondary School, Holy Trinity Catholic High School and two French schools. At left, Stock Transportation bus driver Richard Wardle welcomes a group of soon-to-be kindergarteners onto his bus for a training ride.

Road quality still tops for rural residents Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Roads are still the main priority for rural residents, according to the results of a recent city of Ottawa survey that is part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing Official Plan review. The survey, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Building a Liveable Ottawa: Focus on Rural Issuesâ&#x20AC;? was conducted earlier this spring and summer, and asked residents their opinions on transportation, residential development and village services. The desire to fix and improve rural roads was loud and clear in the results â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not surprisingly, since 93 per cent of respondents said they rely on a car to get around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was consistent with what I think is the main objective in the rural area, which is roads,â&#x20AC;? said Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want more money invested in roads.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our transit network.â&#x20AC;? Residents were asked to identify where transportation funds should be spent in the next five years. Twenty-three per cent said widening major roads is their top priority, and another 16 per cent identified road-related priorities like maintenance and general improvement in the questionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;otherâ&#x20AC;? category. That puts road priorities at the top of the list with 39 per cent. Manotick Village and Community Association president Klaus Beltzner said he was surprised by the results of other transportation-related questions. For example, residents were asked how able they would be to lengthen their commute to work in order to reduce the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pressure to build, widen and upgrade busy rural roads. Combined, 55 per cent said they were able or somewhat able to accommodate such a request.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m curious about that result,â&#x20AC;? Beltzner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like a very, very large number of people that have a lot of flexibility that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to ring true.â&#x20AC;? Beltzner said the results may have been skewed. Only 151 people responded to the survey, and 60 per cent of them were over the age of 50, meaning they might have more flexibility because they hold senior jobs or can set their own hours, he said. The fact that such a small group of people responded could have also skewed the results, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The census count is about 91,000 in the rural area, so that means only 0.17% responded,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can we really believe they reflected (the views of residents) adequately? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the answer to that. As a statistician, that makes me uncomfortable.â&#x20AC;? City program manager for land use Marica

Clarke, who has been working closely on the draft Official Plan set to be presented to council this fall, said this kind of survey can be a useful tool even if only a handful of residents respond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually get a huge response. And what we heard back from them is not really surprising,â&#x20AC;? she said. The city also makes use of social media, community meetings, mail drops and other tools to get feedback from residents, she said. Beltzner said Moffatt has been instrumental in pushing rural issues forward, but roadblocks are everywhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find myself pushing, pushing, pushing and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to get some more results,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems we matter less than some of the urban communities.â&#x20AC;?

Road safety advocates honoured Community - Thirteen individuals and organizations in Ottawa have been recognized with Road Safety Achievement Awards for outstanding contributions to road safety initiatives in the community. The awards were handed out by Glen Murray, Ontario minister of transportation and minister of Infrastructure, and Mayor Jim Watson. “These awards recognize outstanding individuals and organizations that are helping to make our roads safer for everyone,” he said. “By recognizing these achievements, we are also helping to raise awareness of road safety while reminding people to travel safely and responsibly.” “Many recipients are committed volunteers who are making our roads safer for all users, including our cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and motorists,” Watson said. Ottawa’s 2012 Road Safety Achievement Awards nominees are: • A1 Secure Initiative (Ottawa Public Health’s car seat program) • Barbara Mews (recipient of the road safety professional award) • Cycling Safety Awareness Program • Hand in Hand Committee (Focus on the PACE Car Program) • Hot 89.9 FM (Leave the Phone Alone Campaign) • Lights on Bikes initiative (Citizens for Safe Cycling, RightBike, Pathway Patrol Program) • Operation Toe Tag (Club Optimiste Vanier)

• Ottawa Safety Council – motorcycle instructors • Ottawa Safety Council – school zone traffic safety program • Pathway Patrol Program • Pattison Signs • Sgt. John Kiss – Ottawa Police Service • Workplace Cycling Safety Program These awards recognize excellence in the following categories: road safety achievement – professional; road safety achievement – volunteer; media excellence in road safety; corporate leadership in road safety; road safety partnerships and road safety initiative of the year. The city’s own safer roads action plan is also helping work towards the goal of keeping people safe on the streets, said KnoxdaleMerivale Coun. Keith Egli, chairman of the transportation committee. “As we continue to strive towards having the safest traffic environment in all of Ontario, it is important to recognize the efforts of the members of our community and also the successes of our Safer Roads Ottawa Program,” he said. “It is the commitment and combined efforts of many people and organizations that are helping us to achieve our goal of improved safety.” The Safer Roads Ottawa Program (ottawa. ca/sro) is a plan to prevent any deaths or serious injuries on the roads through culture change, community engagement and by creating a sustainable safe transportation environment. It is a community partnership between police, firefighters, paramedics, public works and Ottawa Public Health and the Public Works Department.

Elly gets along with dogs who have a calm and predictable approach but may not get along with very energetic pups, as she is easily overwhelmed by fast movements. Jade is a one-year-old, spayed female, brown tabby domestic shorthair cat who was brought to the shelter as a stray in May, and is now available for adoption. She spent quite some time in foster care while recovering from upper respiratory infections, but is now healthy as can be! Jade absolutely loves to play, but has a rough-and-tumble side to her. She would be best suited to an adult only home, or catsaavy family who understand that she can get very excited while she plays. This little girl will be sure to bring a smile to anyone face.

She hunted ducks, competed in time trials, and was a very good mommy to two litters of puppies! She is the most graceful, speedy, accurate frisbee player, and she rarely misses, tipping the frisbee with her nose and catching it high in the air. When she looks at you, she expresses so much feeling with her gentle eyes and her playful smile, and she often talks with cute little gurgling noises. Cheney spends time at St. Patrick’s Home, bringing smiles and memories back to the elderly residents who love her visits and ask for her when she is not there.

Casino vote puts city at legal risk: councillor Council votes to keep gambling at the raceway with current slots, 21 gaming tables Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Mayor Jim Watson downplayed the possibility the province could say “no dice” after city council voted to require gambling to stay at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. The 16-7 vote on Aug. 28 means the city council wants the rural raceway to be the only location for gambling facilities in Ottawa. The size of the facility would be limited to the 1,250 slots machines that are already at the raceway and the 21 gaming tables council previously approved as a two-year pilot project. The mayor said he couldn’t predict how the province and Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation would react to the city’s statement that it will only accept gambling at the raceway. Watson pointed out that Kingston excluded its historic downtown core from having a casino located there and Hamilton said it would only accept a casino at its racetrack at Flamboro Downs. “I would be very surprised if all of a sudden the province or OLG came

back and said, ‘I’m sorry, we’re not going to follow through on what you asked for,’” Watson said. “We just received the letter on Monday that in essence, confirmed the province’s position that we have one zone, but also that we have the right to make a decision as to where in that zone the gaming facility can be.” Although the OLG had previously expressed that the intent of its gambling modernization plan was to bring gaming to where people live – urban centres – Watson said that was under a different leadership. “A lot has changed,” he said. “There is new premier who is not as enthusiastic, to put it bluntly, about gaming. Certainly in discussions I’ve had, she has reaffirmed with me our right and our responsibility to choose a location that we feel meets the community’s needs.” The seven councillors who voted against accepting a casino and limiting its location to the raceway were: David Chernushenko (Capital), Diane Deans (Gloucester-Southgate), Mathieu Fleury (Rideau-Vanier), Jan Harder (Barrhaven), Diane Holmes (Somerset), Shad Qadri (Stittsville)

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Mayor Jim Watson speaks to the media on Aug. 26 after the city’s finance committee voted to protect existing approved gambling facilities at the Rideau Carleton Raceway only. and Marianne Wilkinson (Kanata North). LEGAL ACTION

Wilkinson tried to have the casino vote delayed to another meeting so council could receive a report on the Ontario Horse Racing Industry Panel’s recommended funding for the raceway and the annual rental revenue the city could receive from that. She said council has moved rather quickly from preferring a full, open process to being specific about the

site. The risk of benefitting one business over another opens the city up to a more serious lawsuit than councillors realize, she said. Wilkinson said the move could put the city in a “precarious position” because the legal department has indicated their could be a possible problem. “I don’t think councillors are thinking this through,” Wilkinson said. Dejected Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk said after the finance committee’s Aug. 26 vote that he could not understand why the city

was willing to vote to benefit the raceway property owners at the expense of any other business or property in the city, including his proposal for a casino an entertainment district at Canadian Tire Centre. Melnyk said his lawyer, Paul Webber, has said what the city is doing is “inappropriate and possibly illegal” and alluded to possible legal action against the city. Casino proponents on council say the bidding process is open and have suggested Melynk could bid to operate gambling facilities on any site, including at the raceway. “We need to be cautious and maybe overt that we are not closed for business,” said Bay Coun. Mark Taylor. “It doesn’t mean we’re not interested in helping them be economically viable and successful.” Qadri, who has supported Melnyk’s bid for a casino in his ward, said adding only 21 gaming tables would make the raceway “a casino in name only.” “Adding 21 gaming tables will not ensure success on its own or allow it to compete with Lac Leamy,” he said, adding that the vote would divide the business community and isolate other business interests. The mayor said the decision was within the committee’s purview to make.
