Nepean Redskins to retire name winter warning KIDS CAN’T WAIT FOR WINTER! starts today! SEE INSIDE FOR DETAILS

Club president said controversy takes attention away from sport, children Jennifer McIntosh

News - The Nepean Redskins football club will retire its moniker. Club president Stephen Dean announced Sept. 20 that the name would be phased out over the next two or three years. “The club came under scrutiny two years ago because there

are those in the community that found the name offensive,” Dean said. “The name of the club and the controversy became the focus of the club and we wanted the focus to be on the sport and the kids. We didn’t want pictures of the kids playing to turn up somewhere being associated with racism.” The club was formed in 1978 and the first team that was at

the mosquito level was billed as the Barrhaven Buccaneers. It was renamed the Redskins – patterned after the Washington NFL team – in 1981. “The name is 35 years old and predates most of our volunteers,” Dean said. Kirk Brant, a Kanata resident, initially contacted the club in 2011 when he saw a billboard on Prince of Wales Drive advertising the Redskins. “I was blown away,” he said when the campaign to change the name started. “Growing up in Kanata I was usually one of

the only native kids in school and when I was called a Redskin there was always a fist behind it.” Brant said at the time he was surprised by the attention the issue received. Shortly after Ian Campeau, also known as Deejay NDN from a Tribe Called Red, took up the cause and started a Facebook group called Change the Racist Team Nickname of the Nepean Redskins. “The Nepean Redskins will be dropping the name and the See NAME, page 4

Name change for club could take two to three seasons Contnued from front

logo at the end of the season. It’s official. We did it,” he posted to the wall of the group that has grown to 1,176 members. Dean estimated the cost of changing the club’s name at more than $100,000. “At $225 per helmet and $1,000 per jersey it adds up pretty quick,” he said, adding the Redskins didn’t want to pass along the cost of the name change to parents. “Football is one of the only sports where the club provides almost all of the equipment,” Dean said.

The name brands us, it doesn’t define us. STEPHEN DEAN

Dean said he hoped to have a new name to announce in December, but the change would likely take the next two seasons. He added the name change would start with the youngest levels – Mites age five to seven and Tyke, ages seven to nine – and then move up until every team adopts the new logo, colours and name. The club has 500 players and 60 cheerleaders. “This is a North American issue, not just a small-town Barrhaven issue,” Dean said. “But the name brands us, it doesn’t define us.”


Stephen Dean, the president of the Nepean Redskins announced the club would be phasing out the old name over the next two years. He said the name change was the right thing to do.


Kanata resident Kirk Brant was one of the first people to complain to the club about the racist connotations of the term ‘Redskin.’

Kids Have Stress Too We think of children as carefree and happy. Sometimes as parents, we forget that our children can suffer from stress too. They may be going to a new school or daycare, getting used to a new routine or they may be watching the news of the recent tragedy in the city and hearing stories about it at school. All of these can make children feel anxious or stressed. It is important to remember that children look to parents to make them feel safe.

How can you help your children deal with stress? • Give them your full attention and listen so you can hear what they have to say. • Empathize with them and help them label their feelings, for example “that must have made you sad”. • Turn off the screens to talk instead. • Talk to them in a calm, soothing voice.

What are some of the ways that children show stress? • Physical signs of stress can include headaches, stomach-aches, changes in appetite, difficulty sleeping and nightmares. • Emotional signs of stress can appear as anger, sadness, crankiness or whining. • Some children withdraw from their usual activities or have poor concentration.

• Show interest in what is bothering them no matter how minor it may seem. • Have young children draw a picture of their feelings. • Spend quiet time together reading, making a craft, or doing a puzzle. Children will often talk about a problem when given the chance. • Have dinner together as a family. • Give them a hug.

United Way needs clear goals


he United Way Ottawa announced a $21million community campaign goal on Sept. 24, a significant drop from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s target of $30 million. Simple subtraction tells us the organization is looking to raise $9 million less than the 2012-13 fundraising year. The decrease seems to follow a disturbing trend over the past two years. In 2011, the organization announced a $33 million goal, but fell short by $1 million; the following year the target was set at $30 million. On the face of it, the numbers seem to indicate the charity will have fewer dollars to support local charities. But numbers can be deceiving, according to the charityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director Michael Allen during last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakfast launch at the Ernest and Young Centre. Allen explains the $9 million drop in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign target as not less, just different. We scratched our collective heads over that reasoning. Unfortunately, the campaign offers a confusing chain of logic to explain how much money it needs to raise and how it uses the money, turning the process into a benign form of a classic shell game. Yes, the charity is looking to raise fewer dollars

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s target only includes donations to local United Way programs. Donors will still be able to donate money to other charities, said Allen, but that money is considered separate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; beyond the $21 million campaign goal. Three years ago, the United Way Ottawa changed the way it allocated funds collected during the campaign, creating priorities and criteria to appeal to donors. In fact, the organization is actually looking to increase the amount of money it allocates to its community partners based on last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total of roughly $16 million. But the problem is the United Way is doing a poor job of communicating how it defines its needs and the way it uses campaign dollars. Confusing potential donors could ultimately translate into fewer donations. The United Way Ottawa spends too much time telling us how much the charity wants to help people, as opposed to defining those needs and presenting a simple-to-understand battle plan. When a charity announces a drop in its fundraising target, it only makes sense to offer a straightforward explanation for the decrease. With so many charities out there competing for limited donations, it only makes sense to put together a good sales pitch.

City life could use a little more country flair


n the fall fair season we get a chance to see things from a different perspective. That can be simple as noticing the houses in a small town as you cruise the small-town streets looking for a place to park, or it can be as profound as witnessing significant instances of behaviour modification. For example: standing in the mud in front of the merry-go-round at the Richmond Fair and waiting for grandchildren to revolve past me, I notice something odd about the 20 or so adults on the contraption. None of them is checking a phone. You have to admit thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty remarkable. When was the last time you looked at 20 adults and none was checking a phone? 1997? Or maybe in church, although even that is by no means certain. People will check their phones any time, any place. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just that someone may be phoning them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also that the phone has a weather update, a hockey score, a favourite song, a movie review, a Sudoku, a text â&#x20AC;&#x201C; each of which could be more interesting than whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on right here, right now. They are called smart phones, although the adjective does not automatically apply to their owners. Knowing the power of the smart phone,

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town it is an event when you notice people not checking it. So it leads you to investigate further. That investigation reveals that it is not just on the merry-go-round that people are not checking their phones. It is all over the fairgrounds. People walk by talking with each other, looking around, seemingly aware of their surroundings. It is quite refreshing. The question is why. We are people, remember, who value our communications devices so much that we now must carry a bagful of wires, in case our phones need charging, or our iPads or BlackBerrys or iPods. (As an aside, did you ever stop to think about how many more wires we all need to carry now that we are in the Wireless Age?) Why do people not check their phones at

the fair? The answer has to be that they are afraid they will miss something if they do. There are all the rides, including that whirly one youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to pay me big money to go on. There are the animals, or that puppet show over there. There are all the booths â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the embroidery, the hats, the candy, the fresh donuts. Fire trucks! Cotton candy! Politicians! If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at your phone you will walk right by, not noticing. This is an important way the country fair differs from ordinary life. The country fair has variety, things you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect, things more interesting than whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on your phone. If you look down you might miss something. For one thing, you might miss an expression on a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. The challenge now is to apply the products of this important new research. The goal is obvious: to make city life more like a country fair so that people wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be checking their phones all the time. But the means arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t obvious. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have heavy horses all over the downtown. Ferris wheels wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit in most urban spaces. And for all we know there are probably zoning bylaws against cotton candy in certain neighbourhoods.

Still, it would be nice if city life contained a few more pleasant surprises than it does now, even if it meant more mud on the streets. If you look at the truly interesting city neighbourhoods in the world, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll notice that they contain stores that you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect, stores that specialize in odd things, like clothing for pets or books about sports or country music on vinyl. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find dead-end streets and little squares with little parks, tiny churches. You might not find banks or giant drugstores or chain coffee shops where people are busy looking at their phones.

Keeping the kids motivated


he hardest thing as a parent is to keep kids motivated. Like the rest of us, the kids gear up in September for school and sports and all kinds of extra-curricular programs. By the time October comes around I start hearing a lot of “It’s Wednesday already? I don’t want to go to music lessons.” Believe me, kid, I feel the same way. We tend to use a lot of reward and punishment at our house – in the form of receiving and losing privileges, mostly. But while this is the most convenient form of discipline for parents, it’s not the most sophisticated. The biggest problem with reward and punishment – to which I’m sure many teachers and managers can attest – is that it tends to lose effectiveness over time. While the kid may have valued screen time or extra pocket money when you first started using them, the second he decides he doesn’t care about those things anymore, the whole system comes crashing down. So what’s a mom to do? How do we keep the kids motivated? How do we keep ourselves motivated when we, too, feel like skipping music lessons, even as we’re simultaneously shouting “Do you know how much I paid for those lessons? Thousands! Thousands!” The problem with motivation is it’s intrinsic. So if you’re in the position of motivator, you’ve got to figure out what really makes the kid tick. This is really hard when it comes to music lessons at our

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse house because I’m forcing the kids to do it. Sure, they asked at some point a few years ago to learn the piano. Sure, they sometimes think it’s cool. But when they’re frustrated, they hate it – and me – and that’s when the tantrums, tears and insults start flying. If you think they give a poop about losing screen time at that point, you’d be sadly mistaken. Discipline – real discipline, the kind that works to keep that motivation going – is timeconsuming and requires consistency. And it can’t be reactive. By the time the kid is having a temper, everyone’s overloaded. You’ve got to have something in your store closet to defuse the situation. Whether you’re dealing with kids, colleagues or employees, here are a few ways to keep people motivated: 1) Take time to reflect on achievements. We live in such a fast-paced world, taking time to recognize what we’ve accomplished before moving onto the next thing is a rare occurrence. But it’s important to remind people how far they’ve come. 2) Take time to consider the level of expertise they have developed over time -- and why sticking to it is important. My kids like it when I tell them that, as a result of hours of practice, a song has become easy for them – this is particu-

larly powerful when they’re sight-reading a new piece at the beginning of the week and I start to hear catastrophic phrases like “I’ll NEVER get this!” 3) Link success to other areas of their lives. I frequently share articles from the newspaper that explain how music education can help with reading and math – “Even though you may not realize it, doing music lessons makes school easier for you,” I tell them. 4) Provide them with short and long-term goals. It’s one thing to slog away on the piano all week, but where is it going to get them besides to the next lesson? My kids know at the end of four years, they will graduate from the program and get a medal. We also try to provide opportunities for them to perform – at school concerts, for friends and family – so they can work toward a few things each year. 5) Be honest and transparent with them. I tell the kids that it’s not always easy for me to get to music on a Wednesday either – because I’m tired, or I’m on deadline. But I also appreciate the opportunity to turn off my phone and spend a whole, uninterrupted hour with each of them – not to mention the fact they’re challenging me to learn to play the piano too.

Cupboards bare at humane society Iams shortage leads to feeding problems Jennifer McIntosh

News - Bruce Roney, the executive director at the Ottawa Humane Society, said the cupboards are bare at the Nepean-based animal shelter. Iams had been donating wet cat and dog food, but an interruption in the supply of canned food in the spring caused the donations to stop. “They started supplying us with cash so we could go out and purchase the food,” Roney said. “But they (Iams) indicated that wouldn’t be a permanent solution.” Changing the animals’ food isn’t an option, as a consistent diet is important to an animal’s health, Roney said. “Switching food would mean a lot of vomiting and diarrhea,” he said. There can be as many as 11,000 animals in

the shelter’s system over the course of a year. Roney said the monthly cost of feeding them could run as much as $6,500. Iams said the supply shortage is related to a plant conversion. “…We are undertaking to ensure a more robust, quality supply chain for the future,” Iams said in an emailed statement. Roney said the humane society’s relationship with Iams has lasted 12 years. This is the first time there has been an interruption in the donation of food. “We are hoping the community can step up and help with the short-term problem with pet food,” Roney said. “We didn’t budget for this.” Residents can help by dropping off canned chicken cat and kitten food or the canned puppy and dog food at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Cash gifts for the purchase of food will also be accepted. Roney said some residents already dropped off some food before the end of September. “We know the public wants us to continue our lifesaving programs and that’s why we’re turning to them for help feeding the animals in our care,” Roney said.

City needed time to mourn after fatal bus-train crash: Watson Laura Mueller

News - Saying the city was in mourning following a tragic bus-train collision that killed six people aboard an OC Transpo bus on Sept. 18, Mayor Jim Watson canceled a planned speech on the future of transportation in the city. The speech, which has since been rescheduled to Oct. 9, was to coincide with the release of

the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft transportation master plan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a blueprint outlining the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transit, road, cycling and pedestrian priorities until 2031. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you are aware, the legislative calendar is quite challenging from now until December, but I felt that we needed time and space to allow our city to mourn and to focus on providing support to those affected by the tragedy,â&#x20AC;? the mayor wrote in a memo to councillors on Sept.

24. The speech, which was set to take place on Sept. 23, is expected to have a focus on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for where and when to extend light-rail transit, among other transportation topics. The rescheduled speech on the morning of Oct. 9 will be followed by the tabling of the draft transportation master plan at a joint transportation committee and transit committee meeting at 3 p.m. Dates for public information sessions for the transportation master plan (including the plans for pedestrians and cycling) have not been announced but will take place in October.

The transportation master plan update is part of a concurrent review of all the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master plans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an exercise the city has deemed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Building a Liveable Ottawa.â&#x20AC;? The draft Official Plan, which governs land use and how the city will develop, was made available this summer. The infrastructure master plan, which looks at water and wastewater servicing, was made public on Sept. 24.

Rack ‘em up for ROSSS Yuk Yuk’s comedian to headline pool night Emma Jackson


News - Staff at the Rural Ottawa South Support Services hope to pocket a good chunk of change for their seniors’ programs at a new event in Nepean this weekend. On Friday, Sept. 27, aspiring pool sharks can head to Tailgators Sports Bar at 1642 Merivale Rd for a night of billiards, comedy and camaraderie in support of the rural nonprofit organization. “We’re looking forward to having a fun evening,” said communications and outreach manager Terry Watson, who noted the organization has never done an event like this before. “We have a new staff person who plays pool at Tailgators and we thought we’d try it out to be different.” Hockey historian Liam McGuire will kick off the evening at 7 p.m. and at 7:45 Yuk Yuk’s

comedian Lawrence Morgenstern will take the stage. Morgenstern has headlined at every major comedy club in North America, including The Improv in New York, The Comedy Store in Los Angeles and Yuk Yuk’s across Canada. Throughout the evening, ticket holders can play pool at the free tables reserved for ROSSS, enjoy hors d’oeuvres and even hustle their way through a mini pool tournament, Watson said. A silent auction and 50/50 draw will round out the night. Tickets are $35, and are available at all ROSSS locations and at the door. Watson said the group hopes to raise $30,000 towards its meals on wheels and diner programs. ROSSS serves seniors and adults with mobility issues in Rideau-Goulbourn and Osgoode wards, but Watson said the Nepean-based bar was the best place to host an event like this. “We also want to bring awareness to the (wider) community that ROSSS does need funding to sustain programs and services,” she added.

Volunteers test quality of Jock River Jessica Cunha

Community - Volunteers braved rainy weather and waded out into the mouth of the Jock River at the Rideau River, collecting samples of insects to test the quality of the water. Chelsey Ellis, a former Barrhaven resident currently living in New Edinburgh, said the event is held once a year, giving people a chance to get hands-on with nature. Streams, lakes and creeks are tested twice a year; once in the spring and once in the fall to get an idea of the health of the water, said Ellis, City Stream Watch coordinator. The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, City Stream Watch, and the Ottawa Flyfishers Society hosted the sixth-annual aquatic insect and fly fishing workshop at Jock River Landing on Saturday, Sept. 21. Participants spent the morning collecting invertebrates living in the water before learning how to properly cast a line. Adrienne Lewis, who grew

To perform the H2O two-

step, participants twisted their feet into the bottom of the lake and used a long pole with a net on the end to scoop up anything that came loose. Dressed in rubber wad-

ers and carrying long-poled nets, volunteers took to the water to perform the water dance. After each turn, the nets were emptied into white containers filled with water then sorted through to see what types of invertebrates are living in the river. Found among the silt were water boatman, crawfish, water scorpions and megaloptera, the latter being â&#x20AC;&#x153;an indicator of really good water quality,â&#x20AC;? said Lewis, an aquatic resource technician with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and City Stream Watch. The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority partnered with seven other Ottawa agencies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; City of Ottawa, Heron Park Community Association, Ottawa Flyfishers Society, Rideau Roundtable, National Defense Headquarters - Fish and Game Club, Ottawa Stewardship Council and the National Capital Commission â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to create the City Stream Watch. The purpose of the program is to gather, record and manage information on the health of waterways in the city.

Confidence makes you feel warm all over.

I know he will continue to bring his energy and enthusiasm to this position. The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation is an environmental charity working to help protect and conserve the lands and waters of the valley of the Rideau River in Eastern Ontario.

News - The classic Cinderella’s castle at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom made the little girls gasp, and mouths drop open. “This way to the princesses,” said the guide, an elderly man who told the girls to call him Grandpa Joe. The six little girls, members of a group of children selected to travel to Orlando, Fla. with the Dreams Take Flight program, wasted no time making their way across the amusement park, stopping only to point at the rides and Disney characters. “You look enchanting,” said one of the little girls to Princess Aurora. “It’s so romantic,” said another. The girls were just some of the 110 Ottawa-area children who travelled with Dreams Take Flight, a Canadian program that takes deserving children from a variety of backgrounds on a trip to Disney World. Several children on the Sept. 24 flight had a sibling with autism or their own medical issues. As well, others live in foster care, or their family’s income prohibits trips like this. But Dreams Take Flight allowed the children to fly, eat, spend a day a day at Disney World, and pick out a special souvenir to take home thanks to donations.


Mikahlah Laroque, from Bayshore, cartwheels her way through the Magic Kingdom. Mikahlah and her twin sister Madison both attended the Dreams Take Flight trip this year. The program was started by Air Canada staff, who volunteer their time - including the pilot who flew the day trip’s plane to take children in small groups around the park. Most of the kids had never

Youth centre makes landfall Emma Jackson

News – Manotick’s youth crusaders may have found a home for their youth centre, if all goes well with city officials. Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt told the Manotick Youth Centre Committee on Sept. 24 that he supports building a youth centre on a sliver of land in Centennial Park, which advocates hope will become a social hub for Manotick teens. “(Moffatt) understands the community is behind this and we need something more for our youth than hanging out at the skate park or the Pizza Pizza,” said Janice Domaratzki, the Manotick Village and Community Association member leading the project. If the city application is approved, the youth centre would be built on the site of the old tennis clubhouse, between the outdoor skating rink and Beaverwood Road. The committee must put together a formal proposal outlining exactly what they want to build, which Moffatt will take to city staff for consideration. Domaratzki is optimistic Moffatt can help them secure the land. “When you have a councillor championing something, it moves a lot faster,” she said. “I think the city will pay more attention.” Ideally, the city would agree to a

similar set-up as the Osgoode Youth Association (OYA), which converted the village’s old fire hall into a youth centre a decade ago. In that case, the city pays the building’s maintenance and utility costs, while its advocates must fundraise for operating costs including staff salaries and programming. Domaratzki said she’s looking to OYA’s board for guidance as the Manotick project inches forward. OYA director Nicole McKerracher said getting a building secured is key. “That’s the biggest challenge: having the city see the value in having youth programs in our village,” she said. Domaratzki hopes Manotick’s centre will be finished within two years. FOR YOUTH, BY YOUTH

Manotick teen Josh Luckett is a member of a Manotick Youth Leadership Group put together by outreach workers at the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre (NROCRC) to bring some temporary programs to the village. He offered a presentation at an information meeting on Sept. 24 that offered a broad vision of what a youth centre could look like for local youth. “We want a safe place for teens to be social and talk to each other without peer pressure and bad influences

coming in,” Luckett wrote in his presentation. “A place where people can be themselves, help shy people to interact, help foster leadership roles, a safe place to get away from any home life troubles. We don’t want kids turning towards trying alcohol and drugs to satisfy boredom or to escape their everyday lives.” He and his peers envision a welcoming space with foosball tables and dart boards, “comfy furniture,” a kitchen area where they can practise their cooking skills, sports equipment and arts materials. Scheduled events would allow teens to try new things – photography, guitar or art, for example – and homework hours would allow them to help each other excel at school. In the meantime, the leadership group, with the help of NROCRC, is working to provide some youth-led programming, particularly for those ages 12 to 15 who can’t yet drive or take a part-time job. The group has hosted two successful events so far: the first was a drop-in night at the Manotick legion, and the other was a cooking workshop at the Manotick arena, both supervised by staff at the resource centre. The next event is a Halloween party on Oct. 25 at the legion. Now staff at the resource centre are trying to secure more funding to keep those programs going until a youth

But funding and fundraising will be on ongoing problem for the youth centre committee. First, the group will have to raise enough money to build the youth centre. After that, they have to keep it running. OYA’s operating budget is about $170,000 a year, and is sourced through an ongoing campaign of events, donation drives, grant applications and some government funding. That’s a big source of anxiety for Domaratzki.

“I worry that we will not have enough community participation from adults as we work to make this centre a reality,” she said. “It takes more than one or two people to make it happen. We need adults to step up and be part of the planning, fundraising and building process.” At a meeting on Sept. 24, Domaratzki invited interested parents to volunteer in areas of their expertise, be it communications, fundraising, wading through bureaucracy or recruiting other people to help out. Parents who want to know about the project and any upcoming youth events can contact manotickyouth@ to be added to the mailing list.

Changes to Greenbank Road police station won’t impact response times: Fisher Jennifer McIntosh

News - Residents in the west end won’t have to worry about longer response times despite changes to the Greenbank Road police station, said director of facilities Ian Fisher. Fisher was asked to speak about the changes to the city’s second largest station at Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli’s fall open house on Sept. 24. “Residents are worried about what changes might mean for them,” Egli said. “I thought having Ian (Fisher) talk about what’s happening would help to ease some of those concerns.” Fisher said last June the police services board approved a long-term plan for the growth of police facilities in the city. The aim is to plan for service as the city grows and where that service will take place. There are currently two dozen facilities that range from the police head-

quarters on Elgin Street to the training facilities at Algonquin College. “We looked out 17 years in the future,” Fisher said. “Because it ties in with development charges and some other plans the city will have and tried to dovetail with those.” He added they looked very closely at the facility on Greenbank. It was built in the 1970s by Nepean and renovated a decade later to go from two storeys to three storeys. “We have simply outgrown it,” Fisher said. “It’s also a very hard building on the inside, made mostly of concrete so it’s hard to do renovations.” Nothing will be done until the year 2024, Fisher said. “But we intend to engage the public early on our plan for that station,” he said, adding police start planning the specifics of a new building five to six years before its built. “We started talking to the public years before the new Huntmar station was built,” Fisher said, adding along

with the change at Greenbank, it’s likely Ottawa police will need to build another station. Fisher said the heating and ventilation systems are breaking down and the plumbing needs to be replaced. The cost of renovating the building could be in the tens of millions. The plan also looked at how the site is used – the land is mostly taken up by parking. “It’s a site we absolutely want to stay part of, but the building will change over time,” Fisher said, adding the cost of renovations would be comparable to building a new facility that fits the needs of the police in the future. The police currently have two temporary offices leased on Fairmont and Queensway avenues. Fisher said the occupants of those buildings would be moved to the Greenbank station as part of the long-term plan. “We will have less of a uniformed presence on the site and more of an administrative function,” Fisher said.


Ian Fisher, director of facilities with the Ottawa police said changes to the Greenbank Road police station will take 10 years to materialize. “And the building will likely grow. We want to make better use of the site.” No changes will be made to police or how the area is patrolled as calls are currently allocated to a patrol division. The closest cars are then dispatched to the call. “When you dial 911, it’s not a car coming from a police station, it’s a car

patrolling the area,” Fisher said. “So the change of Greenbank to a more administrative function won’t affect the calls for service or the time it takes for cars to get to an emergency call.”

Starting a conversation about drugs Police workshop teaches parents what they need to know and how to talk to their kids Jessica Cunha

News - Ottawa police have partnered with the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre to offer parents a workshop on kids and drugs. The program, which will be held at the resource centre on Saturday, Oct. 5, gives tips on how parents can talk to their children about drug use, learn the street slang and what’s popular in Ottawa, and how to recognize potential problems. “It’s for parents only; it’s how to talk to your kids and how to recognize current issues and trends and drug use,” said Const. Lori Fahey, with the Kanata and Stittsville Community Police Centre. The Kids and Drugs program covers four main topics: the power of parents; talking with your kids; help-

ing your kids make good decisions; and what parents need to know about drugs, said Fahey. “We just give them an idea of what the current trends are here in Ottawa,” she explained. “We provide information on different drugs, what they look like, what they’re called.” The workshop is open to parents with children and teenagers of all ages, but the sooner the conversation starts, the better, Fahey said. “We’re looking to catch parents when (their children are) around Grade 5, just to address the topic,” said Fahey, who will be part of the presentation. “Those are the formative years … We want to catch them before they’re starting to use drugs, before they have to make those decisions.” Current drug trends in Ottawa include marijuana and Fentanyl, a strong prescription opioid used to treat chronic pain. There have been recent cases of Fentanyl overdoses in rural areas of the city, said Fahey, adding that police have already hosted Kids and Drugs sessions in Manotick, as well as at two Kanata schools during school council meetings. “The main concern is starting with marijuana. They say it’s not a gateway drug but if you’re willing to try marijuana, you’re willing to try other drugs,” said Fahey.

The session will arm parents with a “toolbox” they can use when having discussions with their children, she added. “It’s just bringing these up to your kids and giving them options,” said

Fahey. “Helping your kids make good decisions.” The workshop will be held at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, located at 2 MacNeil Crt., Kanata, from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

Interested parents are asked to register beforehand by calling the centre at 613-591-3686. For more information, visit the Facebook page at kidsanddrugsottawa.

Splash Mountain popular ride for Dreams Take Flight children Continued from page 18

The flight - his first ever - was almost too much excitement to handle for Hunter, who wants to be a flight attendant. The volunteer flight crew, dressed in Disney costumes, made him an honourary flight attendant for the day. He followed the attendants up and down the aisles as he handed out chips and candy; all the ice cream had already been given out at breakfast time. None of the children had ever been to Disney World, but almost all of them were eager to ride the roller coasters. Splash Mountain was easily the children’s favourite ride. Towards the end of the day, as a train full of Dreams Take Flight kids and volunteers cruised into the end of the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, it was clear that the kids were having a special day, as cheers of “dreams take flight” echoed through the boarding area. Taequan Moise, was all smiles the entire day, from when he first arrived at Disney World waving at the volunteers, to the plane ride home. Taequan said he could probably stay home from school to rest after the 20-hour day trip, but he wanted to tell his friends about his day. “I would tell them about the rides, but about the food mostly. Fries, burgers, hot dogs,” he said. The kids had an early start to their day, arriving at the airport at 4 a.m. at a private hangar. They travelled in style, receiving a police escort straight to the theme park once arriving in Orlando. And of course, they were true VIPs, treated to fast passes that allowed them to the front of the lines on all the Disney rides throughout the day, and a brand new outfit with donated clothes from Mark’s Work Wearhouse and new Croc shoes. While there are always a few tears from first time flyers and skinned knees, the number of smiles and looks of sheer disbelief far outnumbered any frowns. Many only needed one word - “amazing”, “great”, or “the best day ever” to describe their day, a dream come true, as they slowly came down from the sugar high of last-minute ice cream and dozed to sleep on the plane ride home. “It was really, really, really fun,” said Hunter. “From a scale from one to 10, it would be a thousand million. A thousand million and one.”


Above, Several children, including CFB Uplands airbase resident Elleora Lingasin, left, and Bayshore’s Madison Laroque, partially visible, hug a Disney princess after a special personal greeting with the princesses.

United Way announces its campaign goal Michelle Nash

News - United Way Ottawa has announced a $21-million goal for this year’s community campaign, a significant drop from last year’s target of $30 million. Executive director Michael Allen called the number an attainable goal that targets individuals, rather than decimals. “It’s not less, it’s different,” said Allen, during the campaign launch breakfast at the Ernst and Young Centre on Sept. 26. The United Way will no longer ask donors to raise money beyond what the charity called measurable goals: defined by requests from member organizations with designated priorities. “The United Way campaign in the past used to be an estimate of how much we thought we could raise, but it didn’t matter for what,” Allen said. “Now we have the ability to be much more accountable and transparent about what the money that’s given to United Way causes can do,” Allen said. Last year, the organization said it directly helped 65,000 people, using $16 million of the $30 million raised in the 2012-13 campaign. The remaining $14 million from that campaign went to donor-specified


United Way Ottawa announces this year’s Community Campaign goal to raise $21 million. charities outside of the United Way’s targeted priorities. This year, the organization said it would like to focus on increasing the number of people it helps directly to 76,000. “We want to be able to tell donors what donor’s dollars are responsible for,” Allen said. Three years ago, United Way Ottawa changed the way the way the organization allocated funding collected from its annual campaign, creating priorities and criteria to appeal to donors. Allen said this will not change. Donors will still be able to allocate

funds to other charities, with that money considered a separate and over-and-above the $21-million campaign goal. Allen also said the way funding is dispersed has changed. “Twenty-million dollars, we know that has the capacity to change lives,” Allen said. “Our goal is about changing the lives of 76,000 people.” Fighting for community dollars, Allen said has become increasingly difficult, as more and more charities and fundraisers compete for donations. Allen cited technology as a game

changer for charities, allowing people to donate almost anonymously, on websites such as Kickstarter. “Our donors want to know if their money is making a difference, if it’s making results,” Allen said. “This is where United Way will continue to expand and lead the work that we do. We work with partners. No one organization or agency can affect the change we want. We need everyone to come together and I think that is where United Way can play a role and affect the kind of change we want.” Allen said he hopes donors see beyond numbers and continue to be

impacted by the stories of success. “The range of people the money helps is pretty broad,” Allen said. “For example, the people who were affected by last week’s tragedy in Barrhaven, a lot of those people found themselves on the other end of the phone of a distress centre that we help fund and that is what we are there to do - help those people. Its not necessarily people who are poor who need help. It could be you or I, and I think that is the message.” Allen added he is proud of the citizens in this city who do donate. Two weeks ago the organization announced this year’s campaign chairs: Barbara Cook and Goldy Hyder. “This year the emphasis is less on the millions and more on the thousands of people we can help, that’s important,” Hyder said. Cook said the two will highlight the change that donor dollars can make as a way to encourage donations. The two co-chairs said every dollar is hard to raise but are up for the challenge and have no doubt Ottawa will be able to raise the money. Donors can contribute through payroll deductions or online giving, corporate gifts and through special fundraising events. The community campaign will wrap up on March 31, 2014.

Mission gives thanks to OrlĂŠans community garden Michelle Nash

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gardeners in OrlĂŠans having been giving back to the community in truckloads, for which the Ottawa Mission couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier. This past growing season was the second year in a row the OrlĂŠans Community Garden donated surplus food to the downtown homeless shelter, delivering a weekly batch of fresh produce. President of the garden, Gina LaPointe would collect, wash and prepare the 150 pounds of fruits and vegetables every Monday night and take them to the Ottawa Missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen the next morning.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time I would come, I would see smiles,â&#x20AC;? LaPointe said. The Ottawa Mission formally thanked the community garden on Sept. 26. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People like Gina, like those in this community, are amazing,â&#x20AC;? said the missionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chef, Ric Watson. Over the past three months the community garden has so far donated 1,200 pounds of food â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and counting. LaPointe said close to 50 per cent of the gardeners donate to the mission, as part of a seed for seed program for which LaPointe signed up the community garden. In the past, the garden had dedicated plots to give to the local food

Hadrianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wall to headline Metcalfe Fair Car show, truck pull return for second year Emma Jackson

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Metcalfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual agricultural fair is much more than the livestock shows itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous for. This year, fairgoers can take in a number of shows over the course of the Oct. 5 weekend, including concerts from Hadrianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wall, DW James and the Bowes Brothers. The family-friendly car show and truck and tractor pulls will also return Sunday afternoon after a successful inaugural year last September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are lots of things to do,â&#x20AC;? said fair administrator Meredith Brophy, who said as many as 30,000 people could pass through the gate if the weather holds. The Metcalfe Fair has been held in the village since 1856, and still boasts a strong agricultural core that includes horse shows, 4-H auctions, agricultural exhibitions and a step dance and fiddling competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our focus, to be an agricultural fair,â&#x20AC;? Brophy said. Still, the fair is a welcoming place even for visitors whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never stepped foot on a farm. The Barn Door exhibit offers educational agricultural displays with a

farm-to-fork explanation of our food system â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including live animal exhibits. On Thursday, Oct. 3 a demolition derby will put drivers to the test to see who has the last car standing. That show will be followed by a performance from the Bay County Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ys. On Friday, Oct. 4 the Kidzland tent will open with a line-up of musicians, magicians and performers, which continues throughout the weekend. Seniors can come together inside the community centre for refreshments and entertainment in the afternoon, and DW James will take the stage on Friday night. Saturday is by far the busiest day at the fair, with an antique tractor show, step dancing competition and several livestock shows filling up the schedule. The Bowes Brothers will entertain in the afternoon and Hadrianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wall will take over in the evening. The classic car and hot rod show returns on Sunday alongside the truck pull, fashion show and a performance from Jordan McIntosh. For a complete schedule of events visit

City’s tallest buildings planned for Lees Dense, tall development planned for future light-rail stations Laura Mueller

News - The future of Lees Avenue is looking up. A bold new vision for the area around Old Ottawa East and Sandy Hill was presented at city hall on Sept. 24. With light rail coming to the area by 2018, the city is preparing to allow some of the tallest buildings in the city – up to 45 storeys – to pop up around the station. “If you can’t do height here, where can you do it?” said Don Morse, the city planner who designed the plan, referred to as a “transit-oriented development” plan, or TOD. If approved, it would be the tallest buildings the city would allow under its zoning bylaw. The area around Lees already has a few high-rise apartment complexes rising up around 20 storeys, and it also

features a satellite campus and sports field for the University of Ottawa, which would be allowed to be redeveloped with highrises in the future. Claudio Brun del Re, executive director for physical resource services for the university, said uOttawa is currently starting a master planning process and hasn’t defined a future use for those lands, but the school is supportive of the city’s ideas for the area. “There’s a lot of energy there,” Morse said. “With this development, people will know where Lees is.” The plan would put the zoning in place to allow for future development in the long term. It also defines locations for future pedestrian and cycling connections, including a new bridge connecting Clegg Avenue to Hurdman Station. Planning committee will consider transit-oriented devel-

opment plans for Lees, Hurdman and Blair in December. ALTA VISTA PARKWAY

The controversial future Alta Vista transportation corridor is featured on the plans as a commuter road connecting the General Hospital area across the Rideau River to connect to the Lees Highway 417 onramp. Although Morse said he had hoped the future road could have more of a main-street feel in Old Ottawa East, it won’t be possible because of the raised geometry of how the road will have to be constructed. The new road, which has already been approved by city council, would have to be raised above ground on its approaches on either side of the river, and again as it connects with the highway. “I wish it was an intersec-

tion at-grade,” Morse said, referring to the future intersection of the Alta Vista parkway and Lees Avenue. “It would be much better if it was built as a main street. I’ve been advised that the geometry wouldn’t work.” As a compromise to the community, which does not want such a road to be built, the neighbouring Springhurst Park would be expanded east and fill the rest of the space to the future road that is currently an empty field zoned for mixed-use buildings.

Morse said he sees opportunities for modest intensification in Robinson Village, so the height limits are going up slightly. There are other property owners in the neighbourhood who are against any taller buildings, he said. Another Robinson Village resident, Deanne McLintock, said she was OK with the plan, especially if it means more businesses and shops open up on Lees Avenue and the plan allows for a pedestrian overpass of the highway so she can walk there.

would certainly change the area,” he said. “I personally don’t think it’s ever going to happen … but you have to have a plan.” The vision also includes the hope for a large public plaza and park at the LRT station that would allow connections to the Rideau River and multiuse pathways along it. A new interior road that almost follows the shape of the shoreline would provide access to new developments there.



The neighbouring area on the north side of Highway 417, Robinson Village, would also be upzoned but to a far lesser extent – only about eight storeys. A group of several Robinson Village residents attended the meeting to make it known they feel it’s a missed opportunity not to allow taller buildings and more density in their neighbourhood. Doug Biesenthal, who has owned a home in the area for around 30 years, said he is in favour of “progress.” “They’re restricting these people here (in Robinson Village),” he said. “If these people (in Old Ottawa East) are going up 20 storeys, why can’t they do it here?” Biesenthal said buildings aren’t the only thing intensification critics could bemoan. “Do they complain about the height of trees in the neighbourhood?” he said.

Plans for development around Hurdman would mostly allow buildings in the 20-storey range to fill in what is now National Capital Commission greenspace. Lands north of the future light-rail line would likely be developed first, said city planner Cheryl Brouillard. That’s because lands farther to the south, where there is currently a hill, is an old landfill that would have to be cleaned up before development could occur. “It’s going to be a long time before we redevelop that land,” she said. One man who lives in the area but declined to give his name said the amount of density proposed for his neighbourhood looks overwhelming. But he said he’s not too worried about it because it’s very unlikely that those developments would actually happen,“It

Plans for the area around Blair Station won’t change too much because the major land owner – the Gloucester Centre mall – is not planning any big moves, said city planner Peter Giles. The plan would encourage more residential development to be incorporated into the area around Blair and Ogilvie roads, but it would remain zoned mostly for mixed-use: commercial and residential buildings. There are plans to replace the Ogilvie Road plaza containing a Shopper’s Drug Mart and Dollarama with a new retail and possible office building, but the developer has room to consider a residential component in the future, Giles said. Adding more cycling connections is a main priority around Blair Station, especially raised cycling tracks on City Park Drive, which will likely see development in the future.

Glebe’s exploration garden gets benched

News - Plans to build an exploration garden in Central Park this summer never came to be because the city could not find a contractor to take on the project. The project, submitted in early April to the city’s planning and heritage committees, aimed to create a small space in Glebe’s central park next to Bank Street for children to play. Dubbed the children’s exploration garden, the proposal included a fossil dig area, balance beams, log seating and a sand play area. The garden would be enclosed by a bamboo fence and the entire project would cost the city $120,000. The proposal received council approval for construction this past June, after receiving heritage stamp of approval from built heritage in May but, according to Captial Coun. David Chernushenko, the project got off to a late start, leaving contractors without the necessary time and manpower to complete the work. The Glebe Community Association’s parks committee said in June it had hoped construction would begin in July, but Chernushenko reported the city did not receive any qualifying bids. According to the councillor, the city has gone back to the contractors, seeking new bids, but the delay cost the Glebe its chance to have the garden

built this year. “I am hoping next year contractors will be not as busy and have interest in this project,” Chernushenko said. Chernushenko said part of the issues with the contractors was the tight timeline and the proposed staging area, which was located in the park.

I am hoping next year contractors will be not as busy and have interest in this project. COUN. DAVID CHERNUSHENKO

The community association disapproved of the construction staging area, and voted for the city to work on finding a better area, not green space to put construction materials. Disappointed the garden did not get built this summer, parks committee chairperson Elizabeth Ballard thanked the councillor for working with the community on the project, adding she was disappointed it was delayed. Chernushenko said the project will go to tender again in the spring of 2014.

Central was a vital link between neighbours


t was a complete mystery to me. I never thought much about it before Uncle Lou, with his usual feeling of compassion for Mother, installed our first telephone out on the farm in Northcote. But once that beautiful oak contraption was hung on our wall in the kitchen, I was in complete awe of how someone not even in our house, knew when we wanted to talk to someone miles away, or they wanted to talk to us. That someone was right inside Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store! She sat on a padded chair in front of a big board with holes in it, and long cords trapped in a desk-like affair in front of her. Usually, a light would come on, but sometimes a little bell would ring, and she would know exactly what to do with those cords and the holes in the board with the red lights flashing! Sometimes, Mr. Briscoe manned what was called the switchboard himself, but I have little memory of his voice coming into our oak cm x 17.145cm

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories phone on the kitchen wall. It was someone we simply called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Centralâ&#x20AC;?. The very first day we got the phone, will stay in my mind forever. Mother cried. Not from sadness, but from the sheer wonder of finally being able to talk to someone at will beyond the four walls of our old log house. That first night, we sat around the kitchen waiting for the phone to ring. There was no looking through Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue that night, or whittling or playing cards at the pine table. Even Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diaries never left the back-to-thewall cupboard. We sat in a circle as if we were in a theatre. Only Father wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that impressed. Finally, it came around to bedtime, and it looked very

much like the phone was not going to ring. It was Mother who decided, if no one was going to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;call inâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, then she would â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;call outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. She went to the beautiful new phone, which I thought was every bit as nice as the new oak ice box grandfather bought for us, and took the receiver off the hook, and pressed a little black button on the side of the box. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Could I please talk to Bertha Thom,â&#x20AC;? she said into the black mouthpiece. And there it was! There was Mother talking to Aunt Bertha! Just as if she was in another room, and not across the 20 acre field on the next farm. When the phone was put in that day, we were told our ring was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;two longs and a

shortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take us long to know the rings of everyone else in Northcote. But it really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if we knew the right rings or not, because â&#x20AC;&#x153;Centralâ&#x20AC;? as we called the switchboard at Briscoes General Store, was well acquainted with the rings of everyone for miles around. Having a phone was not without its problems. When it rang, it could be for any number of homes in Northcote! As many as four or even five other families shared the line! We soon found out you had to be extremely careful what you said on the phone, because, if they chose to listen in, everyone who took off their receiver where privileged to your conversation. And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual to have your complete conversation repeated the next day at the General Store! It also wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual to pick up the receiver and ask Central if she knew where Mrs. Hines was...her advice was needed. And Central

always knew where everyone was. Sometimes when Mother rang a neighbour, Central would come on and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone into Renfrew to Walkers...she needed some lace trim for a blouse sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making. She should be back in a couple you want me to ring you when she gets home?â&#x20AC;? Central was the lifeblood of the entire neighbourhood. If there was a fire, or any other emergency, somehow Central was able to ring all the farms at the same time, at least that seemed to be the case. Because everyone responded in jig time to give a helping hand where needed. Of course you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need Central if you knew the ring of the person you were calling. You just pressed the little black button on the side of the telephone and twirled the handle on the other side, giving the number of rings to reach whomever you wanted to talk to. And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual for Central to interrupt

your call to tell you some important bit of news, or to say someone else was trying to get the phone, and would you please hurry it up and free up the line! It was different when Mr. Briscoe was answering a call. With him it was all time for idle chatter with Mr. Briscoe. Mother always felt safer once we had the phone put in on the farm. Some of the isolation she felt when she first moved to Northcote was gone. It was my sister Audrey who noticed it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not exactly like New York,â&#x20AC;? Audrey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But for Mother it beats not being able to talk to another soul without getting out the horse and buggy or the old Model T.â&#x20AC;? Yes indeed. The new phone made a world of difference to our lives on the farm. And â&#x20AC;&#x153;Centralâ&#x20AC;?, I thought back then, was just about the most important person in Northcote. She was that vital link between isolation and connection with a neighbour.

Jedliniok promotes Polish culture on trip to Ottawa Arts - For the first time in many years, Ottawa is playing host to a grand troupe of artists from Poland. The 20-member group of singers, dancers and musicians known as Jedliniok will perform one show only, on Oct. 6 at 5p.m. at Dom Polski, 379 Waverley St. The Name Jedliniok comes from the lower Silesia area of Poland and all members of the

group are either current students or graduates of the University of Wroclaw. The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extensive repertoire features regional dances and songs from Silesia as well as national Polish dances such as the Polonaise, Mazurka and Krakowiak all performed in original, richly embroidered costumes. In a telephone interview, Jedliniokâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic

director, Henry Brzezicki, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;our main goal is to promote Polish culture both at home and abroad.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far we have performed in 57 countries ranging from China and Vietnam to Mexico and Argentina.â&#x20AC;? The group invites all lovers of song and dance to experience first-hand a true image of

Polish culture. Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for youth under 14. All proceeds go to support the next leg of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worldwide tour. Seating at Dom Polski is limited. To reserve your tickets call Stanley Kielar at 613-8280225. For more information about Jedliniok, visit

News - It’s not easy being green - but at the museum of nature frogs show off just how much fun being this colour of the rainbow can be. Frogs - A Chorus of Colours opened at the Canadian Museum of Nature on Sept. 25. The show features 18 species of frogs living in created natural habitats and 11 interactive components and games that patrons can enjoy. “This exhibition has been extremely popular since it was created over 20 years ago,” said senior zookeeper Leslie Thompson. Since its creation, the exhibition has traveled to 20 major cities across North America. The nature museum is the only Canadian venue. Of the many species on display, there are poison dart frogs, tree frogs and a hefty African bullfrog - that weighs almost a kilo in weight, or is the size of a small desert plate. Head of research at the museum, Mark Graham, said he finds the best part of the show is that people have the chance to see the frogs in natural habitats. According to the museum, frogs live almost everywhere - 4,800 species living world wide, and 25 species living in Canada. The amphibians can live in extreme hot and frozen temperatures. The largest frog can grow up to the size of a human infant and the smallest frog is only half an inch long. Aside from watching the frogs hop, eat and sleep people will also have a chance to participate in virtual dissections, frog I.Q. tests and an experi-

ment seeing how far a frog can jump allowing everyone to learn fun facts while walking through the show. The show will be on display at the museum until May 11, 2014. The exhibit costs an additional $4 above regular admission. FROGS ON DISPLAY:

American Bullfrog - These frogs are named for their loud, deep mating calls. Tadpoles - Most frogs start life as a fish-like tadpole. African Bullfrog - These frogs can live up to 40 years and can grow to up to eight inches in diameter. Smooth-sided Toad - These toads have no teeth but are considered bold predators by using their sticky tongues to catch their prey and swallowing it alive. Chinese Gliding Frog - These frogs have enlarged webbing between the toes which spread and the webbing acts like a parachute when leaping. Amazon Milk Frog - These frogs are named for its sticky white substance they secrete from their skin. Ornate Horned Frog - These frogs pounce on prey with extraordinary speed, eating mice, beetles, snakes and other frogs. Fire-bellied Toad - These frogs use skin colours for protection, when disturbed they throw their legs in the air, revealing a bright red “fire belly” to startle an intruder Waxy Monkey Frog - These frogs climb trees thanks to its grasping feet Dart Poison Frogs - Some of these frogs can create enough poison to kill 10 men.

Lifestyle - Use the rice and fish still slightly warm for best results, and assemble the rolls just before serving to keep the toasted nori wrappers crispy. Serve with a small dish of soy sauce and some additional wasabi. Preparation time: 10 minutes. Marinating time: 30 minutes. Serves four. INGREDIENTS

• 1 fresh trout fillet, skin on (about 375 g/12 oz) • 25 ml (2 tbsp) soy sauce • 15 ml (1 tbsp) liquid honey • 15 ml (1 tbsp) rice vinegar • 10 ml (2 tsp) wasabi paste • 10 ml (2 tsp) finely minced fresh gingerroot • 300 ml (1-1/4 cups) water • 250 ml (1 cup) sushi rice, well rinsed in cold water • 50 ml (1/4 cup) seasoned rice vinegar • 15 ml (1 tbsp) toasted sesame seeds • 4 toasted nori sheets • 1/2 sweet yellow pepper, thinly slivered

• 1 carrot, thinly slivered • 8 stalks watercress PREPARATION

Rinse the fish under cold water and pat dry. I n a shallow dish, combine the soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, wasabi and ginger. Add the fish, turning to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to two hours.In a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the water and rice. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Remove the pan from the heat and let the rice stand, covered, for 15 minutes. Gently stir in the seasoned vinegar with fork. Then divide the rice into four portions and cover with damp cloths. Spray a grill pan or a grill with cooking spray. Remove the trout from the marinade and place skin-side down on the grill over medium-high heat. Cover with the lid closed for one

to two minutes. Turn the fish with a spatula, then cover and cook for two more minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork. Remove the skin and sprinkle both sides with the toasted sesame seeds. Place the sheets of nori on clean dishcloths or a bamboo sushi mat lined with plastic wrap. Dampen your fingers with water and lightly press one portion of the rice into thin layer to cover one sheet of nori, leaving a 2.5 centimetre (one-inch) section at the top edge without rice. Make shallow groove along centre of the rice and place a few slivers of yellow pepper and carrot inside groove. Top with one-quarter of the trout, broken into narrow pieces with your fingers, and a few sprigs watercress. Curl edge of the cloth/mat to help form the toasted nori into cylinder, pressing firmly to enclose filling, then seal the edge with water. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make four rolls. Slice each roll into bite-sized pieces. Foodland Ontario

We need your help... In our ghtly knit community of Barrhaven ,we are anxiously awaing the warm summer weather as unseasonably cool temperatures connue through most areas of the province. Warmer weather means barbecues, lazy days, and hours spent roaming through local farmers markets full of homegrown produce and tasty treats. Although many of us are fortunate enough to look forward to these seasonal events, for others in our communies this is too oen not the case. With the current economic state in Ontario, many individuals are struggling to put meals on the table each and every day. Prices are rising across the board for food staples, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to find accessible, affordable, and nutrious food.

Pumpkin Pecan Crunch Pie

Demand for food in Barrhaven is up another 40% in the first 5 months of 2013 over the same period in 2012. BFC is entering into our “food-donaon-deficit” period and we have started to buy food to supplement donaons, we usually do not get into these difficules unl late-July or August.

With a velvety smooth pumpkin filling and a crunchy pecan topping, this pie makes the perfect ending to any fall meal. A dollop of whipped $ cream or a scoop of Farm Boy™ Vanilla Ice Cream, makes it even better. Only here for October, pick one up today because once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Beyond the bedside Local end-of-life experts help launch the province’s first integrated palliative program – and build a case for better funding

and creating a standardized approach for how care is delivered will go a long way, Abedi said. Part of the challenge is bringing the entire range of palliative-care providers into the fold and adopting a common mindset. Instead of reactive, symptom-focused care delivered by several different providers who don’t necessarily communicate with each other, the regional program looks to bring all providers on board with a more holistic approach. Providing continuity of care throughout the course of a patient’s illness is the goal. But achieving it means unraveling a complex web of family physicians, emergency-room doctors, oncologists, homecare providers, day hospice programs and more. Something as straightforward as creating an electronic record of treatments that’s shared amongst a patient’s entire health-care team is a nut that can take months to crack, Abedi said. Step one was creating a clearing house for processing applications for palliative care. There are now two nurses working out of Bruyère Continuing Care who use their expertise in palliative care to assess a standard intake form and place patients on a waiting list for the type of care that best suits their needs. That’s one major step towards a truly integrated system, said Lynn Kachuik, an Ottawa Hospital nurse who is an expert in palliative care and sits on the regional program’s council. “By going to the (centralized) system we are able to simplify the access … So they’ve got the data they need to make a decision based on what the needs of the patient are,” she said. “We’ve been much more efficient in using the beds effectively.”



here’s an elephant in the room and it’s crowding Ottawa’s hospitals. Too many people are dying in hospital because they haven’t had honest discussions about death, according to palliative care doctor José Pereira. These conversations – a patient’s preferred place to die, the level of treatment and their concept of comfort – must start long before a person is weeks away from death, he said. “If we only think about palliative care from the last days or weeks of life, many people are going to suffer unnecessarily for the time they have left,” he said. For one Ottawa woman, who Pereira didn’t name for privacy reasons, this lack of planning led to confusion for both her and her family. Just a few months before she died her doctors at Bruyère Continuing Care still didn’t consider the woman a palliative patient. As her health failed, she was receiving treatments she likely didn’t need any more. “This was a lady who had been struggling with end-stage heart disease, very, very advanced heart disease for many years. And suddenly in the last few months (she was) admitted to a hospital, and put on all sorts of treatments,” Pereira said. She started a regime of antibiotics, and was put on dialysis for kidney failure. She began to question the benefit of being hooked up to machines this late in her illness, Pereira said. “She was saying, ‘I know I’m dying ... my goal is to be as comfortable as possible.’” A quick look at her chart was telling: scrawled in a colleague’s note, the words “the patient is not yet palliative.” COHESIVE CARE

Pereira’s colleague wasn’t being oblivious; there are hundreds of health-care professionals across the city and province who share the same view that palliative care is only relevant in the last few weeks of life. “Health professionals in general haven’t received much education in this area,” said Pereira, a doctor at Bruyère Continuing Care and the Ottawa Hospital. “We get trained in our different specialties but we haven’t in the past done a good job of training new doc42

Célestin Abedi heads the new Champlain Hospice Palliative Care Program, the first of its kind in Ontario that wants to get all health professionals on the same page when it comes to end of life care. It’s an initiative that aspires to change the way palliative care is delivered – and how it’s funded.

Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, October 3, 2013

“The issue is not only beds,” Abedi said. “It’s how we can create a more seamless transition for clients from one service provider to another,” Ottawa has a “strategic advantage” in the palliative care field, Abedi said. Some of the national leaders in the field call Ottawa home and the city also benefits from having the Bruyère community, the largest palliative care provider and research body in Canada. Despite a wealth of expertise and resources, access to palliative and

hospice care delivery in Ottawa has been disjointed. “There were a lot of initiatives that different local communities were working on but there wasn’t any kind of connection with what they were doing and what the hospital is doing,” Abedi said. Part of the regional network’s goal is to help patients and caregivers create a palliative care plan that starts long before the patient is in the final days of their life. “(This) is a paradigm shift. The current system – it was somewhat very fragmented and key players were left out,” Abedi said. “What we’ve done (is) to bring everybody together to have a common vision of what should be the right palliative care for the population. “And from there, we’ve made tremendous progress.” It sounds simple, but identifying common, validated tools and training


Centralizing the hospice and palliative care system on a larger scale is another goal for regional network. By October, Ottawa will have 19 residential hospice beds run by one umbrella group called Hospice Care Ottawa. The organization is a merger of the Friends of Hospice Ottawa and the Hospice at May Court, which were operating separately until a year ago. The two groups amalgamated to integrate funding and services for the city. Merging Maycourt and the Friends of Hospice was not a painless process, Abedi said, but now the city has one entity that can look at the needs of the entire city. “We cannot allow ourselves to have so many players who are not connected whatsoever,” Abedi said. “We cannot sustain that.” Aligning service providers means existing funding can be used better, said Pereira.

“Sometimes it’s not just about more funding, sometimes it’s about allocating the money we have more appropriately,” Pereira said. “I really think what this project (the hospice merger) shows is that when you bring all the stakeholders together you can reallocate the existing funding in a much better way.” Pereira has witnessed the positive effects of this approach through his work at a residential hospice in Edmonton in 1995. “The research shows that if we do it properly, people have less depression, less anxiety and may in fact even live longer,” he said. Ottawa’s hospice still has a long way to go, said Lisa Sullivan, executive director of Hospice Care Ottawa. “In terms of the size of Ottawa, we know it could benefit with a lot more beds,” Sullivan said. A study from Bruyère Continuing Care in Ottawa suggested the city needs somewhere between 70 to 80 beds for a population of one million, but the regional program has set a goal of 40 beds.

We cannot allow ourselves to have so many players who are not connected whatsoever ... We cannot sustain that. CÉLESTIN ABEDI CHAMPLAIN HOSPICE PALLIATIVE CARE PROGRAM

Currently, the city has nine hospice beds available at May Court and eight beds at the Embassy West Senior Living on Carling Avenue. Two more beds will be added by October. By 2016, the organization plans to build a 10-bed residential hospice in Kanata, followed by 10 beds in the east end and then 10 more beds in the south end, Sullivan said. But the focus on beds isn’t necessarily the most pressing issue, Sullivan said. There is an overwhelming need to boost bereavement and day hospice programs.


Dr. José Pereira is a palliative care expert at the Bruyère Continuing Care centre. FUNDING FLIP

In Ottawa, the biggest player in residential hospice care needs $1.6 million a year just to keep the lights on. “We need to raise $1.6 million just to operate. No extra bells and whistles,” said Sullivan. “That is our biggest need.” Under the current provincial formula, most residential hospices receive around $246 per bed per day though the Champlain Local Health Integration Network. That covers roughly 40 per cent of their operating budgets. “That money comes with a lot of strings,” Abedi said. It can be used only to cover for nursing staff and personal support workers. Rick Firth, executive director of Hospice Palliative Care Ontario, would like to see that number grow to 80 per cent, but recognizes that funding residential hospice beds is a relatively new practice in Ontario. “It’s easy to say they’re not funding 100 per cent, but you look at 2002 with zero dollars to hospice and then in 2006 there was about $24 million allocated,” Firth said. “And it continues to grow.” Recognizing that a hospice bed costs $439 a day compared to $850 a day for an acute care bed in a hospital, many palliative care experts argue the province’s money would be more effectively spent on hospice

beds to free up hospital beds. In Ottawa, Abedi’s ultimate goal is to convince the LHIN to reverse the funding balance and pay for 60 to 80 per cent of the cost of hospice care. “We are working to collect enough data to advise the LHIN to change that funding formula,” Abedi said. If the province’s goal is to have hospice to play a bigger role within the health care system, Abedi said “it is not correct” to ask hospices to fundraise for 60 per cent of their budgets. On the advice of the hospice palliative regional program in Ottawa, the LHIN is now funding around 65 per cent of nursing costs for the amalgamated local hospice group. Navigating that uncharted territory of making incremental decisions that will build towards a new funding model will fall to Ottawa because it is a leader in the palliative-care field. “When you look at palliative care, we’ve got a lot that other areas don’t have,” said Kachuik, the Ottawa Hospital palliative-care nurse specialist. “I think we’ve taken great strides in developing what I would call an integrated system.” While Ottawa still has work to do, it is a leader compared to other parts of the province, particularly rural areas. The Thunder Bay region has no hospice beds at all, and the South East LHIN, stretching from Belleville to Smiths Falls and north to part of Lanark County, only opened its first three beds this summer. Other regions of Ontario plan to follow Ottawa’s lead by starting their own regional programs for palliative and hospice care. But in the meantime, experts in Ottawa will set the example for a shift in how end-of-life care is delivered.

Rural hospice: ‘there’s a need for sustainable funding’


taff at Hospice Renfrew know all too well the limitations of a rural location. The hospice’s six beds run in the small town of Renfrew are the only ones in the county, and they’re almost always filled with patients living out their final days. A registered nurse and a personal support worker are there 24 hours a day, and the hospice also maintains a small administration. About 50 volunteers cover the reception desk, run support programs, plan events, tend the garden and bake homemade snacks for residents. But it’s not enough. Six beds can’t meet demand for an entire county, and there’s a constant list of patients waiting to get a bed, said hospice director Diane Caughey.

Some of them die before the beds become available. But adding more beds isn’t exactly feasible, either. The Ontario government funds less than half of the hospice’s $1 million operating costs, and all of that money goes to nursing care, Caughey said. “There’s a need for sustainable funding that will cover operations,” she said. “There are fundraising challenges in a small rural community.” Fewer people means fewer dollars, and there’s always competition from other fundraising health care facilities in the region. “The challenge is ... how does a community of 5,000 people raise the $1 million a year to support it?” asked Hospice Palliative Care Ontar-

io’s executive director Rick Firth. Renfrew is not alone in this. Rural hospice beds are few and far between. According to Firth, the vast majority of the province’s 231 beds are located in urban areas. Until July, the South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) covering Belleville, Kingston, Smiths Falls and parts of Lanark County had no hospice beds at all, and the North-West LHIN in the Thunder Bay region still lacks any residential facilities. Part of the problem is that provincial funding for hospices is designated solely for nursing staff – $90,000 per bed - and that base cost is the same no matter how many beds a hospice has. “In the smaller facilities it’s more

of a challenge because the nursing model requires a registered nurse present 24/7,” Firth said. “So in a situation like Renfrew where there’s six beds (instead of the standard 10), you still have the need for an RN 24/7. You can’t split a nurse in two. So proportionately they get less funding per bed.” A six-bed hospice like Renfrew should get $116,000 instead of $90,000, he said. The other problem is geography. To cut costs, several villages or townships will collaborate to cover a region. A day hospice program could be located in one town, Firth said, but residential hospice beds might be in another. This creates an access problem for patients and family members who

must travel long distances to get to the facility they need. The new hospice program inside the South East LHIN hopes to address some of those issues. Instead of building the standard 10-bed model in a centralized, urban location, the beds will be spread around. In July, Hospice Prince Edward opened three beds in Picton and the South East LHIN plans to monitor how they are used before opening the remaining seven beds in several other small groups across the region. Firth said rural access is one of his organization’s biggest priorities moving forward, and it will participate in a ministry-led committee this fall to facilitate rural-focused solutions.

Meet Cincinnati (A157880), a twoyear-old charcoal rabbit who loves to run and explore. He’s been at the Ottawa Humane Society since July 2 and is ready to find a forever home. Cincinnati is a curious boy who wants space to play and do rabbit things. He has an independent spirit and would love to find a home where his family respects his desire for freedom. He’d make a wonderful companion for just about anyone but would like some time to get to know his new family before really warming up and becoming his true rabbit self.

To meet Cincinnati and all the other animals available for adoption, visit the Ottawa Humane Society at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. or view the animals online at

Many Ways to Help the Animals at the Ottawa Humane Society Way-directed gifts help the OHS rescue lost, abandoned, neglected and abused animals in our community and give them a second chance at a new life by adopting them into loving homes. United Way gifts have helped animals like Britta. Britta, a three-month-old puppy, was hit by a car last February and suffered head trauma and a broken leg. She was rushed to the OHS for surgery. After

recovering in shelter, Britta spent a couple months with OHS foster volunteers who helped the pup finish her healing before going to a new forever home. The OHS and the animals in our care do not receive grants or funding from the United Way, unless animal supporters like you, direct your gift to us. It’s EASY!

This is our cockatiel, Hobbes. He is three years old. We adopted him when he was one. He loves to travel around on our shoulder throughout the day and will climb over to our hand when we sit down and nudge it with his head. This is his way of telling us he wants us to pet him. He loves to have his head and neck rubbed. He often serenades us with is own unique songs but he knows the theme song from the movie “Bridge on the River Kwai”. He is a very affectionate bird and we love having him as a part of our family. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç
