News - Get ready to run for your life and for humanity. The first ever Zombie Run for Humanity is set to take place Oct. 19 and the race is a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity NCR (National Capital Region). Participants are encouraged to put their humanity on the line and race to survive the zombie apocalypse. The race is designed to take humans across some tough terrain in what is being referred to as the ‘infected zone’ but is otherwise known as the Nepean National Equestrian Park at 401 Corkstown Rd. in Nepean. And organizers say the race is not about speed or skill, but survival as humans will come into contact with plenty of zombies along the way looking to infect them. According to run co-founder Susan Vacheresse, she and fellow organizer Ryan Ricci wanted to give something back to the community but neither had ever organized a large-scale event before. With the popularity of zombie walks and shows like The Walking Dead, the duo thought they might try that approach and see if it clicked with the public. And it has. “We had no idea what we had our hands on,” Vacheresse said. “This appeals to a dif-

News - A vote on the Ottawa public school board’s annual wish list pits communities against one another, said Orléans parent Oswold Peters.

Peters, along with Lorna Bonvie, a Cumberland resident since 1985, made their case before the board of trustees committee of the whole meeting on Oct. 1. The meeting was to vote for a list of capital priorities. The list is comprised

of projects selected by staff in May 2012 that had yet to receive funding. Barrhaven trustee Donna Blackburn proposed an amendment that would see a new Half Moon Bay elementary school nab the top spot over a new school in the Avalon subdivision of Orléans. The change was voted down by the majority of the board.

“I realize there wasn’t much appetite to change the list,” Blackburn said. Blackburn said she didn’t think enough work had been done to try and accommodate the extra Orléans students in other schools. See TRUSTEE, page 3

Jennifer McKenzie, an Ottawa west trustee and board chair, said although there are growth pressures in the Avalon area, the overall enrollment in the OrlĂŠans area has declined by 300 students since 2009. Barrhaven’s student count has gone up by 772 during the same time period. “We could build a school every other year in Barrhaven and not keep up with demand,â€? she said. OrlĂŠans trustee John Shea said that Orleans boasts a population of more than 100,000 people and while there’s declining population on the north side of highway 174, there is a lot of growth to the south. “It’s quicker to drive to the city limits of Ottawa than to drive to the next closest school that has space,â€? he said. Peters agreed and said the widening of Trim Road to four lanes will only foster more development. Blackburn said Henry Larsen Public

School on Sunview Drive was 100 students under capacity, but the board’s manager of planning Karen Carty OstaďŹ chuk said it was more complicated than a simple shift of students. “With the class size cap on primary grades and the pressures of full-day kindergarten it may not work,â€? OstaďŹ chuk said. The distance between the schools is ďŹ ve kilometres. Peters said while he recognizes that Barrhaven and Kanata are high growth areas, he has to come out and advocate for his community. “Unfortunately because of limited funding dollars it pits one part of the city against another,â€? he said.

“Contributing to the well-being of our community has always been a part of Hydro Ottawa’s core mandate�, said Hydro Ottawa President and CEO Bryce Conrad. “The programs that Christie Lake Kids offers build character and provide youth with practical, hands-on experience. Through our support, we are providing valuable life skills that help at-risk youth grow into healthy successful adults.� For seven weeks in the summer and eight weekends during the school year, youth aged 13-17 live and work together on Belle Island, building leadership and teamwork skills. The facility includes roof-mounted solar panels to power lighting, composting toilets, solar-heated showers, and a bicycle-powered water pump that works with a gravity-pressurized water system. More than 300 children and youth from Ottawa are expected to visit the site each summer to explore alternative sources of energy and sustainable living. “I think it’s important that kids can come to places like this because it gets them in touch with a different side of the world�, said Liam, a camper at Christie Lake Kids. “The Hydro Ottawa Sustainable Youth Leadership Centre has provided a one of a kind opportunity for our youth to develop pro social skills, outdoor skills, and a lifelong passion for energy conservation and environmentalism�, said Carole Gagne-Ince, executive director of Christie Lake Kids. “What we’ve started, in partnership with Hydro Ottawa, has a really, really bright future.� Hydro Ottawa employees helped construct the new Sustainable Youth Leadership Centre in May and have the opportunity to mentor youth enrolled in the Christie Lake Kids S.T.A.R.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we should treat every community fairly,â&#x20AC;? said Blackburn. Blackburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amended list would have pushed an Avalon II school down to the ďŹ fth spot on the eight-item list, behind a new Half Moon Bay School, a rebuild for Broadview Public School, an addition to West Carleton Secondary School and an addition to A.Y. Jackson Secondary School. Mark Fisher, a trustee whose area includes south Ottawa, said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little appetite for another look at the list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This process is necessarily divisive,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking forward to a new multi-year, capital priority planning process. The list the board approved puts Avalon in the top spot, with a new elementary school in Barrhaven coming in second. Ryan Knuth, the director of public relations for the Half Moon Bay Community Association, told the board that the community already boasts 3,263 homes and with planned developments would soon be double that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parent engagement and volunteering are much more likely if there is a community school,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a great community and with a public school we would thrive.â&#x20AC;?

Walkers hope to raise funds to combat kidney disease Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Orléans resident Kassie Stephan has been dealing with kidney issues since she was a toddler. Now 17, she was diagnosed with cystinosis, a rare genetic metabolic disease, when she was three years old. While she became well acquainted with the nephrosis team at CHEO, Kassie said she led a relatively normal life until she was 13. To help her failing kidneys, the teen was on dialysis three times a week for six hours at a time. As her transplant neared, her time on dialysis increased to 16 hours a day. “I was only off dialysis to go to school,” she said. It was Sept. 17, 2008 when her pager went off, indicating that there was a kidney available. “I started to dream of a normal life,” Kassie said. The transplant was done two days later, but by July her dreams quickly faded. “I was in full rejection by then,” Kassie said, adding she has been waiting on the transplant list for four years since the rejection. Her mother, Connie Alguire, could be a match but wasn’t healthy enough to undergo the procedure. As a result, she has undergone a gastric bypass and lost 80 pounds in the last year. “Maybe my dream of a normal life is that much closer,” Stephan said. Stephan’s speech kicked off the annual Kidney Wallk on Sept. 29, which boasted 150 people hoping to raise awareness about kidney disease and raise funds for the Kidney

KASSIE STEPHAN Foundation of Ottawa. Bruce Hill, a manger with the Kidney Foundation, said Kassie’s story isn’t unusual for those that suffer from kidney disease. The foundation has raised more than $100 million for research since its inception in 1964. Hill said the annual walk is one of the biggest fundraisers for the foundation, which also offers support for dialysis patients through peer groups and counselling. “There are five stages of kidney disease but most people don’t know about it until their kidneys are failing,” Hill said. Hill added most dialysis patients live in poverty-like conditions. “If you have to go get dialysis three times a week for a few hours at a time it’s tough to hold down a job,” he said. The charity raised more than $700,000 from this year’s walk. According to the foundation, there are currently 10,000 Ontarians living with some form of kidney disease. For more information, visit www.kidney.ca.

The funds raised will help provide the necessary direct support to injured or ill soldiers and military families.

Take a veteran to dinner Oct. 20 Community - The idea for Take a Veteran to Dinner Night was born of a strong desire to show appreciation of the efforts and sacrifices of Canadian veterans in past and current conflicts. This non-partisan event is simply an opportunity for community members to personally thank area veterans and their spouses by treating them to dinner. That is, a host buys a veteran’s ticket as well as their own and both host and veteran attend the dinner together. We encourage hosts to invite veteran and spouse couples when appropriate.

Building on the successes of the previous dinners, this year’s event will occur on Sunday, Oct. 20 at Tudor Hall. Cocktails will be available starting at 5 p.m. with dinner following at 6 p.m. Tickets are $55 per person (but there is no cost for veterans and their spouses) and the evening will include an introduction of veterans in attendance, a dinner, a guest speaker and much reminiscing. For more information about this event, please visit www.veteransdinner.ca. Hosts and honourees may call 613-239-4035 to order tickets.

A realtor by day, Vacheresse said there is nothing better for her than seeing someone get into a new home. So she and Ricci agreed that Habitat for Humanity for be the best organization to benefit from their event. “Habitat for Humanity is such a great cause and we felt we should support them and somehow create a name for the event that tied in with theirs,” Ricci added. “We’ve been working very hard to make this a huge success and we’re so thankful for the volunteers who’ve been helping us out, especially those from Habitat for Humanity.” The focus of the run is survival. At the start, the human participants will be given an identification number and three flags. The flags are life and they attract the zombies. The zombies will do everything they can to take the flags. If a human loses all their flags but finish the race,

Vacheresse said the race will be through a five kilometre obstacle course that will take runners through fields, tall grass, woods, obstacles and put them face to face with zombies looking to infect them. “We wanted to appeal to everyone,” Vacheresse said. “This appeals to people who aren’t athletic and people who are...it’s an experience. At the end of the race, you either survive or you are infected.” And at the end, there is the surprise decontamination chamber experience that awaits those who have been infected.

Their ears were frostbitten, but they were lucky to have survived. It’s a hard life for feral cats. Domesticated cats, if abandoned and living long enough outdoors, can become feral. Feral cats are homeless, “wild”, untamed cats, often born outside and having had little or no contact with humans. Ferals often live in groups called colonies. It is estimated there are millions of feral cats in North America. Some are lucky to have volunteer caretakers feed and care for them, at great expense to themselves – maybe someone in your neighbourhood. For some ferals, food is scarce. They get sick, frostbitten, attacked and injured or killed – and no one knows or cares. Fortunately, a Trap-Neuter-Return program reduces the feral population humanely and gradually; but the whole colony needs to be vaccinated too, and then managed under the care of a dedicated cat colony caretaker. Kittens and not-so-wild cats can sometimes be adopted into homes. Wilder but healthy cats are returned to their colonies.

Spaying/neutering and veterinary care of feral and semi-wild cats is expensive. Your donation will help care for these cats. To donate and/or request more information, please contact:

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about death

J

udging by the sad state of our provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s palliative care system, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to have a conversation about death. The statistics are frightening. According to the Canadian Palliative Care Association, most Canadians would prefer to die in a home-based setting, yet nearly 75 per cent of all deaths occur in a hospital. Only 16 to 36 per cent of Canadians have access to hospice palliative care depending on where they live. The situation will only become worse over time, with the seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; population expected to double by 2036. Meanwhile, people are living longer, giving them time to develop more chronic diseases. Unfortunately, Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residential hospices are struggling to stay afloat, with a funding model that relies primarily on charitable donations. The Ontario government only started providing financial support for hospices during the past decade, leaving the rsponsibility of keeping them running to volunteers and community groups. After sustained lobbying from palliative care agencies, the federal government finally took action, providing $3 million in one-time funding for the Canadian Palliative Care Association to develop a plan to deliver quality end-of-life care across the country. The 2012-15 initiative advises provincial govern-

ments to have a clear policy on palliative care that promotes access and integrated delivery of services together with the necessary funding. But based on a recent interview with Ontario Health Minister Deb Matthews, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not confident that approach is even on her radar.The minister was recently in town for the opening of the Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre, promoting it as a way to provide less-costly and sometimes more appropriate options for expectant mothers. But when asked if she saw a parallel with using a similar cost-efficient model to offer non-medical care at a hospice, Matthews said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d â&#x20AC;&#x153;have to think about that a little bit,â&#x20AC;? adding hospices will always be partially funded by communities, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the communities who want them there. But the minister is not the only one guilty of avoiding a serious conversation about death. We all need to start talking about the state of our provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s palliative care system and the options available for quality palliative care. Individually, everyone should prepare an advance care plan, directing their care in the event of a lifethreatening illness. Collectively, we must force this on the legislative agenda at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park. As it stands, today is not a good day to die.

Things that go beep in the night

S

omething went beep beep beep at 5:30 in the morning. Just loud enough to wake me up, not loud enough to wake up the whole neighbourhood. It kept going beep beep beep for it seemed like 10 minutes. Could have been a truck backing up, but what truck backs up continuously for 10 minutes? The first thought was that it was the sound of an electronic device wanting something. Electronic devices are very needy. If their batteries sink below a certain level, they start going beep, no matter what time it is. Then you have to remember whether the phone or the camera or whatever is in somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purse or somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jacket pocket or under a seat cushion somewhere. But it was none of those things. It was something outside. Or maybe in the garage. There was equipment left in the back yard for some work going on. Maybe a piece of that equipment needed something. But there was no beeping in the garage and nothing in the backyard. It was somewhere in the neighbourhood, but no idea where. By the time I got back to bed, it had stopped. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never know what it was. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it was a car alarm. Remember when

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town those used to go off all the time? Now you never hear them. Maybe theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re made better. Maybe no one turns them on any more. Maybe they just make little beeps like the ones I was hearing. Trying then to get back to sleep, I pondered not only the neediness but the stupidity, and perhaps even perversity of our electronic devices. Long before the first cellphone was invented, Woody Allen had a stand-up routine about his war with the machines he owned. The toaster burned the toast. The clock ran counter-clockwise. The sun lamp rained on him. So he gathered all the appliances together and spoke to them reasonably, asked them to co-operate. A few days later, the TV set began to act

up and he attacked it in a rage. Two days later, he was in an elevator, which asked him for his floor. He said 16. The elevator said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you the guy that hit the television set?â&#x20AC;? Then the elevator took him up and down fast between floors and let him off in the basement. Most of our machines are not that mean. Although I have a printer that demands to be realigned when it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need it. If I were Woody Allen I would have a little talk with it and tell it that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s printing just fine the way it is. But I know thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reasoning with it, so I go through the whole realigning drill, which is time-consuming and inconvenient. The thing is, the printer is too stupid to know it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need realigning. The manufacturers probably thought the printer is really smart, because it can send me messages. But if the messages are wrong, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so smart about that? The same with those things that go beep beep beep. Children make noises when they need something but, except for the very young ones, they know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more effective to make noise when their parents are awake. Not so for cellphones, cameras and whatever that other beeping thing was. If machines

were really so smart, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d know when people are sleeping. The fault is ours, of course. We, the technology-obsessed people of the world, taught machines to make noises, to send error messages, to demand upgrades. And if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t obey, they make our lives miserable. Which forces us to buy newer machines. The only possible solution is to turn them off whenever possible. You know they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like that because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always asking us to confirm that we want to do it. And there may well be a punishment down the road. But at least it stops the beeping for awhile.

What’s diminishing your productivity?

M

onday morning, I sat down at the desk in my home office. As I lowered myself into the chair, my elbow bumped something sticking out of the bookshelf. A dictionary fell on my head – and a condom fell out of it. It was pretty clear what the universe was trying to tell me – my office had become out-of-control untidy. Everywhere we turn these days we find tips on increasing our productivity – both personally and professionally. But one thing that diminishes our productivity subtly is our physical environment. As organizations move toward open-concept offices, employees have to figure out how to filter out not just their own mess, but that of other colleagues as well. Organizations – like the federal government’s Workplace 2.0 – see open-concept as a boon financially. This is based on the idea that cubicles are cheaper than walls and that, theoretically, people can do their jobs anywhere – but these modern companies may actually be losing money on the productivity side. Journalist Annie Paul Murphy, who publishes a monthly electronic newsletter on psychology and human behaviour, points to a number of studies that tell us open-concept workspaces actually make us work poorly, for multiple reasons. First, they inhibit our problem-solving capabilities. “Research shows that the ceaseless hubbub can actually undermine our motivation,” writes Paul. She points to a study recently published in the Journal of Applied Psychology. In the study, a group of 40 clerical workers were divided into two groups. The first group was exposed to three hours of low-intensity noise, while the others were given a quiet work environment. At the end of the period, all the women were asked to figure out a series of puzzles – puzzles that, actually, had no solution. The women who had worked in the noisy environment gave up early. The ones that had worked in quiet persisted with the problem-solving. Open-concept can also inhibit productive communication. Paul notes

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse that, while open-concept workspaces are designed to increase communication between employees, a lot of it is just unproductive gossip that was once confined to the water cooler. Studies show that people are less likely to make important calls under the watchful eyes of colleagues, preferring instead to take a walk with their cell phones when it’s convenient

or foregoing the call entirely. And for managers, open-concept can be a nightmare. “I have no private space to coach or discipline my employees,” said one manager in social services. “If I need to have a meeting with a staff member, I have to book a conference room,” said another government manager. “These are

designed with open-concept in mind, too, so everyone walking by can see us conversing in the fish bowl.” As a writer, I’ve never been one of these hip coffee-shop groupies. In order to get anything done, I need a quiet space. The ideal writing time for me is in the early morning. If I’ve had a good night sleep, I have many ideas stewing in my brain in the early hours and I’m unlikely to be interrupted by anyone at 5 a.m. Meanwhile, however, I’ve got to clean my office. Boxes stacked in the corner, paper covering every surface and my bulletin board with five-yearold data on it? These “things” are like people chattering at me all day long. I’ll let you know how I get on with the clean-up. In the meantime, you may want to find yourself a clean, quiet place to get that project done.

Different approaches worth exploring To the editor:

Re: three-part series exploring dyslexia. I would like to respond to some of the articles’ content. I commend the author, Jennifer McIntosh for raising awareness regarding the prevalence of dyslexia and the struggle for schools to meet the demand for testing. This is reflected in the annual report on Ontario’s publicly funded schools 2013. Even with a diagnosis and accommodations, many dyslexic students find school to be a daily challenge. I also identify with the author’s frustration for her son James, as I was in a similar position a few years ago. My son developed an aversion to reading and writing which began in Grade 1. As I had a background in teaching, I worked with him on phonics and drilled sight words on flashcards. We also stepped up

our home reading practices but despite my best efforts, it did not resolve the problem. In fact, it was making things worse. It was humbling for me as a teacher and parent struggling to help my own child. My search for information led me to explore Davis methods. My son enrolled in a reading correction program in the fall of 2008. It suited him perfectly as it was not phonicsbased, nor did it involve repetition or drill. Working with the dictionary and clay allowed him to explore the meaning of the high-frequency abstract words that interfered with his fluency and comprehension. My son’s goal was to do five words a week and we easily incorporated the Davis reading exercises into required reading for school. He is now 14, thriving at school and reading for pleasure, which I think is testament to the success of his program.

It is disappointing to read that Tracy Armstrong’s daughter did not have the same success. Davis programs are designed to be continued in a home setting where a support person can work one-on -one with the child. Trying to implement the home program in a busy classroom setting with the demands on teacher’s time and a student’s attention would be challenging to say the least. Looking beyond one parent’s experience, your readers should realize that there are thousands of clients who describe their experience with Davis as pivotal, providing them with tools and techniques to master symbols and words that previously had been a barrier to their learning. In the article on support services, the vice-principal of Heritage Academy is reported to say, “only specific methods – provided by Heritage and another private school called

Mindware Academy – are useful in teaching dyslexics to learn to read.” This comment is a disservice to readers. It leaves them with the false impression that there are only two viable methods available – both delivered in a private school setting which is beyond the financial reach of many parents. The author concludes her article by referring to support for parents available in the Ottawa community. She mentions the Learning Disability Association of Ottawa-Carleton which is an excellent resource centre for parents. CHEO was not listed, but also offers parents a variety of material on learning disabilities. The Dyslexia Centre in Aylmer, Que., is a business and should be listed as such.

Photo helps spread the word To the editor,

On behalf of the War Amps, I would like to thank you for Jennifer McIntosh’s excellent photo featuring James Jordan, a graduate of the War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program, as he demonstrated to members of the Barrhaven Lions Club, the device he uses for push-ups (NepeanBarrhaven News, Sept. 19.) Through CHAMP, Jordan, who was born a left arm amputee, has adopted the Winner’s Circle philosophy by accepting his amputation and not letting it be a barrier to living a full and active life. Articles like yours certainly help to inform the public of the resources and programs available if they should ever need the support. The War Amps receives no government grants and its programs are possible solely through public support of our key tag and address label service. Your coverage will go a long way in helping to spread the word. Danita Chisholm, executive director, CHAMP Program

LETTER

United Way aims to change 76,000 lives United Way Ottawa set an objective this year to change the lives of more than 76,000 people in our community by raising the $21 million needed to achieve this. Yes, it is true that $21 million is less than $30 million. However, comparing these two fundraising goals is like comparing apples and oranges. In the past, United Way set a fundraising goal based on how much we thought we could raise. This goal included the donations we hoped to attract to the work of United Way and the donations we collect on behalf of other registered charities. This year’s goal is much different. Last year, donors contributed $16.8 million to United Way to advance our community’s priority goals. This year, we aim to raise $21 million, a goal for which we can be transparent, accountable and demonstrate measurable results. Three years ago, through research and consultations, United Way defined the needs in our community and established priority goals for our work with others. These goals included helping more children and youth to succeed in school, ensuring more seniors can continue to live in their own homes and helping more of our neighbours facing a crisis in their lives to access the support they need. Since then, United Way has invested donor dollars in programs

and initiatives that are linked to these goals. Today, based on the reports of our partners and our own ongoing research, we can show our donors that their donations produce results. We are proud of these results. Here’s one result. Research shows that one in five children in Ottawa live in poverty and many don’t have access to after-school homework support, recreation and social programs that help keep them off the streets, in school and safe. Last year, we invested almost $1.8 million in 23 frontline programs that directly helped more than 9,100 children and their families. Reports about the children and youth in one homework club supported through donations to United Way show that two-thirds are doing better in school and more than 80 percent say they want to go to college or university. We want our donors to know that their gifts to United Way are making our community measurably better. We also want them to know that with more donations, we can help more people to the benefit of everyone in our community. That’s why we introduced a different kind of goal this year. It’s often challenging and complex to explain change and our intention this year is to tell a much simpler story. Join us. Together we can help to change the lives of 76,000 people in our community. Michael Allen President and CEO of United Way Ottawa

DYING FOR DIGNITY

Connected to your community

The way forward Ontario is on the cusp of a revolution in the way the province offers palliative care, but the plan hinges on government support Metroland East Special Report

O

ntario’s palliative care agencies offer a chilling prognosis for the decades to come. With a seniors’ population predicted to double in size by 2036, and a funding model for residential hospice care that relies primarily on charitable donations, the system just isn’t sustainable, say palliative care experts. Canadians are living longer, giving them more time to develop chronic illnesses. The health-care system can also expect to encounter a growing number of patients with unpredictable life spans as a result of an increase in cases of dementias such as Alzheimer’s and other diseases. “Unless something is done in the next few years, we’re going to be in a crisis situation on a number of fronts including palliative care and Alzheimer’s and other dementias and just physical space for treatment of the Baby Boom generation,” said Christine Elliott, Ontario Progressive Conservative health critic. “We need to start planning seriously now, because this is happening in the next three to five years,” she added. “We’re going to have to start to deal with it as boomers hit 65 and start having more complicated health problems.” Meanwhile, only 16 to 36 per cent of Canadians have access to hospice palliative care and end-of-life services, according to the Canadian Palliative Care Association, depending on where they live. Three-quarters of all deaths occur in hospital, even though most Canadians would prefer to die at home.

The provincial government has failed to properly fund residential hospices, said France Gélinas, the Ontario NDP health critic. Many are forced to come up with more than half of their operating costs through charitable donations and fundraising drives. “Except for hands-on care, the Ministry of Health has not paid for hospices, so the hospices are on the hook for everything,” she said. “Fundamentally something is wrong – we don’t ask any other part of the healthcare system to fundraise their operations. Why do we ask hospices to do that?” Hospice palliative care is a priority for the Ontario government, said provincial Health Minister Deb Matthews. But she was vague concerning the ministry’s current and future plans, adding that it wasn’t long ago that hospices received no funding at all. “When George Smitherman was minister he announced some funding. I recently announced we would cover the nursing care in hospices,” she said. “So we have come from zero to 50 per cent, or whatever the number is, in a very short period of time.” The provincial government started providing funding for hospices in 2006. TIGHT BUDGET

The Ontario government’s action plan on palliative care must recognize both the growing seniors’ demographic and the province’s tight fiscal situation, Matthews said. “We know we’re not going to have a whole lot more money,” she said. “Our government is committed to keep increasing the health-care budget, but at

Experts in palliative and end-of-life care are looking ahead to a time when all Canadians can access quality care in their final days, and have the opportunity to choose where they die.

ing consistent palliative care planning across every region. “So, within basically the same envelope, we have to transform how we deliver care,” said Matthews. “One of those things ... is improving options for palliative care.” One option is reallocating money from hospitals to residential hospice care. Liberal Senator Sharon Carstairs, who founded and chairs the Canadian Virtual Hospice, said receiving palliative care at a hospital or long-term care facility is the most expensive form of delivery. “You want to avoid sending someone to a hospital setting if you possibly can. But at the same time you

need a hospital setting,” she said. “It’s turf war. It’s about moving the dollars out of the hospital system and into the community.” By funding more hospice beds, the province can reduce the burden on hospitals’ emergency rooms and acute care beds, according to a report published in 2009 by the Hospice Association of Ontario’s Residential Hospice Working Group. An acute care bed in an Ontario city costs an average of $850 per day, nearly twice the amount charged by a hospice for a residential bed: $439 per day. Using a 10-bed hospice model, this would free up $1.5 million annually in health care spending, according to the hospice working group. But this money does not represent dollar-for-dollar savings, said Rick Firth, director of Hospice Palliative Care Ontario. “We’re decreasing the cost of care for the individual and we’re freeing up beds in the hospital for them to use for other priorities,” he said, adding it’s about providing appropriate care for the patient.

Moving forward, the province needs to set a funding target of 80 per cent for residential hospices, he said, as well as improve access to hospice in rural communities. Célestin Abedi, executive director of the Champlain Hospice Palliative Care Program, an advisory group for the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, is hoping to convince the LHIN to change the funding formula for hospices. “If we would like hospice to play a bigger role in the health-care system, it is not correct to ask them to fundraise for 60 per cent of the budget to do that,” he said. “In the rural regions, where you almost don’t have any capacity for fundraising, you cannot give them a bed and say, ‘fundraise for 50 or 60 per cent of that money,’ knowing that they don’t have that capacity.” Hospices already supplement their operations with an army of volunteers. More than 600 people donate their time to Hospice Care Ottawa to keep its services afloat.

The Champlain LHIN is now looking at how much money goes into palliative care in hospices and in the region. Its strategic plan identifies palliative care as one of the health network’s priorities for 2013-16. MOVING FORWARD

A big part of the solution to Ontario’s palliative puzzle lies in the integration of services, say palliative care experts. “Integration is key,” said Firth. “It’s a trend in most of the western world in order to contain health-care costs.” After years of advocating for improved access to hospice by the Quality End of Life Care Coalition of Canada, the message finally resonated with the federal government. In 2012, the Canadian Palliative

here’s a lesson for palliative care professionals in the way Roger’s House helps dying children. “Truly, the model we have for pediatrics would be the gold standard for adults,” said nurse Marion Rattray, manager of Roger’s House. One of only four hospices of its kind in Canada, Roger’s House provides eight beds and a home-like environment for families whose children are terminally ill. Respite care, pain-management consultations and other types of ongoing interventions are more necessary for young patients at the end of life, Rattray said. Caring for palliative children is

program aims to help patients and caregivers create a palliative care plan that starts long before the patient is in the final days of life. “The one thing about the Ottawa program is that the community has come together and (is) talking together about integration of services,” said Kitchen Clarke. Other examples of cities offering innovative and integrated programs include Edmonton, which has a regional palliative care program that offers 57 hospice beds located in three different areas in the city, as well as an intensive palliative care hospital unit.

Lessons from Roger’s House

usually a more complex challenge than providing the same care for dying adults. Children receiving palliative-care are more often stricken by multiple, complex genetic conditions that leave the child with very high care needs. “We need to be connected to a tertiary care hospital,” said Lloyd Cowin, executive director of Roger’s House. “That’s critical.” That need reinforces the link between the hospital’s palliative care team and the hospice – something that differentiates it from hospices that serve adults. Those lessons could be translated into adult care settings by having medical teams extend palliative care

outside hospitals, she said. “You’d have a palliative care team in hospital, but that team would also outreach into the community, into the hospices,” Rattray said. Many hospices are affiliated with hospitals and palliative-care experts who work in a medical setting, said Cowin, but that interdependency is more vital in pediatric palliative care. One of the big secrets of its success is co-location – the house sits on what was a small sliver of spare land at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Being located on the same site means doctors and nurses from the hospital’s palliative care team help oversee care at Roger’s House.

“It’s very unique,” said Cowin. “It’s a big reason for our success.” The labour-intensive youth hospice model works simply because it serves a smaller proportion of palliative patients, Rattray said, making it possible for Roger’s House and CHEO to invest the resources needed to provide that high level of care. Creating a connection with families and the children themselves helps ensure the patient receives the type of care that’s best for them during the entire course of their illness, Rattray said. “The beauty of it is if we are consulted early in the illness trajectory we are able to help them all the way through,” she said.

Advance care checklist Think about what is right for you. What’s most important to you about your end-of-life care?

Learn about the different medical procedures that can be offered at the end-of-life. Some may improve your quality of life, others may only prolong it.

Choose your substitute decision-maker. Pick a loved one who is willing and able to speak for you, if you can’t speak for yourself.

Talk about your wishes with your substitute decision-maker, loved ones and doctors.

Record your end-of-life wishes – write them down, create an audio record or make a video. Courtesy of advancecareplanning.ca

That’s the type of foresight – referred to in the medical community as “advanced care planning” – that palliative-care professionals say would help ensure patients get the care they need – and not treatment they don’t want. It would also reduce the burden of dying adults on hospitals. The key is to let the patient and his or her symptoms dictate what time of treatment or care is needed, Rattray said. “In medical schools and in nursing school, basically you’re taught to fix. And we are such a death-denying society that we have to fix. We just have to fix this. And some things we can’t.”

The office’s Better Neighbourhoods grant program can only serve about four communities each year, so the online toolkit is a way to extend the office’s resources into other communities,

Boswell said. The website toolkit is broken down into four sections the represent the four basic stages of a project’s lifecycle: Get Inspired, Get Started, Make it Happen and Project Wrap-up. In addition to ideas, articles, tips and information on relevant bylaws, the site also has practical tools like checklists and a way to gain contacts for local media through the city’s media relations office. Much of the information already existed on the city’s website, but now it’s gathered and linked in one spot to make it easier to find, Boswell said. She also invited people to contact the Neighbourhood Connection office by emailing neighbourhoods@ottawa. ca with suggestions about other information or links that could be added to the site. By the end of the year, the website will also feature case studies of the first four Better Neighbourhoods projects from this year. Projects that took place in Vanier, Leslie Park, the Brewer Park com-

groups receive up to $30,000 in financial support and work with their city councillor’s office and city staff on projects. At the launch of the toolkit during a Sept. 24 planning committee meeting, Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley questioned whether a costbenefit analysis had been done for the website.

Lee Ann Snedden, manager of policy development and urban design, said the Neighbourhood Connections office has been in operation for two years and is up for a full program evaluation at the end of 2014. That will include a costbenefit analysis, she said, as well as recommendations on how to proceed in 2015.

New school hopes to help make studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dreams come true Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Carole Gauthier, the principal at the newlybuilt French catholic elementary school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; St. Kateri â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in Barrhaven, said she hopes to catch students dreams and make them come true. While parents whose children attend the English public board are fighting for a new school in Half Moon Bay, the new French Catholic school students have already begun class at the brand new building on River Mist Drive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We already have 294 students. We can hold 400,â&#x20AC;? Gauthier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are teasing me that we will have portables in another year.â&#x20AC;? The school houses students from junior kindergarten to Grade 6 and a daycare. The school was named after Kateri Tekakwitha, a Mohawk woman who was canonized in 2012 by Pope Benedict XVI. In a nod to the aboriginal saint, the school constructed a dream catcher which is on display in the front hall. Each class made their own string on beads to be placed on the art work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then we gave each class

their own dream catcher,â&#x20AC;? Gauthier said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to catch their dreams and help the students realize them. Gauthier said she was happy the school was named after a woman. Gauthier comes to St. Kateri from a school in OrlĂŠans but she said she is familiar with Barrhaven from her work at Pierre Elliot Trudeau French Catholic elementary school on Longfields Drive.

We hope to catch their dreams and help the students realize them. CAROLE GAUTHIER

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real growth area,â&#x20AC;? she said. Gauthier was named as Kateriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principal in May 2012 and she had a hand in selecting the colours and furniture for the new building. She even dyed her hair to match the red paint she chose for the doorways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It became a joke that the architect should find hair dye to match the paint and give it

to the principal,â&#x20AC;? she said. The school boasts two storeys, a computer lab, a gym and stage. While the backyard of the school sits empty, but for a pile of woodchips where the playground will go, Gauthier said the parent council is already starting to fundraise. The veteran educator is working with the board to implement any pilot projects at the new school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including a program that would see all school fees, field trip forms and class information online for parents to track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to cart money back and forth,â&#x20AC;? she said. Gauthier is also working on a homework club and a robotics program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always easier to try new projects at new schools because not everything is set,â&#x20AC;? she said. With the tile for the gym only completed in the last week of September and computer problems making the start of the year interesting, Gauthier said she was proud of the way her staff pulled toJENNIFER MCINTOSH/METROLAND gether.

Skeptical councillors approve new OLG deal

Committee stands firm on number of slots, gaming tables Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A â&#x20AC;&#x153;unilateralâ&#x20AC;? contract the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation delivered to the city gives the OLG freedom to deďŹ ne the number of slot machines and gaming tables in Ottawa. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nance and economic development committee narrowly supported the agreement on Oct. 1.

This is not a routine negotiation, so there is no back and forth. RICK Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;CONNOR

Despite the clause undermining city councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent decision to only allow 1,250 slot machines and 21 gaming tables at the Rideau Carleton Raceway, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nance committee signed off on the contract last week. But committee members did so on the understanding that the OLG would put in writing that it would respect the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision on the number of slots and tables before city council was asked to give ďŹ nal approval to the agreement on Oct. 9. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick said the OLG

advised him it was prepared to put that in writing in time for the council decision. Mayor Jim Watson, who heads the ďŹ nance committee, also put forward a motion to the committee reinforcing support for councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision about the number of slots and tables. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans was the only committee member to dissent on that amendment. City solicitor Rick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor said the tone and format of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;agreementâ&#x20AC;? was a departure from similar contracts with the OLG. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I were to tell you this was an agreement negotiated in the normal course, I would be being disingenuous,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a routine negotiation, so there is no back and forth.â&#x20AC;? The agreement doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change much for the ďŹ nancial relationship between the OLG and the city. It adds a contribution to the city of four per cent of the proďŹ ts from table games, which doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply now because there are not yet any gaming tables at the raceway. In the last ďŹ ve years, the city received between $4.3 and $4.4 million annually from raceway slots revenue. The new agreement also adds the creation of a community recognition program, which the city will be obligated to partner with the OLG to design and implement. The agreement requires at least one community promotional event to be held annually. It is anticipated the city would be required to pay for its own costs

for at least the one event reach year, according to a city staff report. The city manager will be discussing the details with OLG. Some committee members, including OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette, expressed concern that the program would obligate the city to become a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cheerleaderâ&#x20AC;? for the OLG. Bruce Jutzi, the only member of the public who signed up to speak to the committee about the issue, said that clause is only one part of the new agreement thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problematic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The OLG wants 2,000 slots and 84 tables,â&#x20AC;? Jutzi said, adding that the provisions in the agreement are designed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;neuterâ&#x20AC;? the city. Other councillors, particularly Bay Coun. Mark Taylor, were also concerned about a clause that absolves the OLG of any liability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why we would sign this,â&#x20AC;? he said. Taylor, along with College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Peter Clark, Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli and Deans voted against the agreement.

Sports - Christine Rogers and Barb Taylor captured the gold medal in the pickle ball doubles competition at the Ontario 55+ Regional Games held recently in Cornwall. Rogers and Taylor represented District 7 Ottawa West in the Eastern Regional Games and won all five of their round robin matches on the way to District 7’s only gold medal performance in the multi-sport senior event. Rogers and Taylor played as a pickle ball team only one other time, winning a gold medal in competition in Oshawa, Ont., before garnering another gold medal in Cornwall. Taylor, who has played tennis for 20 years but only one-and-a-half years of pickle ball, said she took to pickle ball like a “duck to water” and really enjoys the sport. Rogers has played pickle ball for five years and together the twosome have enjoyed their recent successes. Roger Huestis, District 7 co-ordinator, said there were more than 400 participants in Cornwall representing seven districts in eastern Ontario. Events in addition to pickle ball included golf, walking, bowling, shuffleboard, carpet bowling, darts, and card games such as euchre, bid euchre, cribbage and contract bridge. Huestis reports next up for District 7 members and the Ontario Senior Games Association 55+ group is the Ontario Senior Summer Games Championships in August 2014, to be held in Windsor. It is expected that additional activities such as slo-pitch softball, tennis and swimming will be added to the already extensive list of activities offered in Windsor. Anyone 55 years or older who might be interested in participating in any of these activities should contact Roger Huestis at www.sportinglylg@gmail.com.

• In the fall, there are fewer boats on the water to offer assistance. Boaters should be sure to leave a float plan with a responsible person on shore who will know what to do if they’re overdue. A marine radio or cellphone will allow them to call for assistance should the need arise. • Having a few tools and spare parts aboard will also allow minor fixes. It’s important that boaters ensure that their boat and engine are in good shape and mechanically sound. Ethanol-based fuel can allow water contamination in the tank. The use of a fuel additive prevents water in the fuel line from freezing which could cause the engine to chug to a halt. If the boat has portable fuel tanks, it’s a good idea to have a spare on board as a reserve. When boaters head out, they should be wary of reduced water levels that can result after a long, hot and dry summer season. Some of a boater’s favourite shallow water fishing holes may be inaccessible at this time of year. Also, while underway, they should keep a sharp lookout for debris and chunks of ice that could penetrate the boat’s hull at speed. Visit www.csbc.ca for more tips on boating safety.

Community - Boating in the fall offers colourful vistas, quiet anchorages and excellent fishing but comes with challenges. The Canadian Safe Boating Council and the Ontario Federation of Anglers & Hunters want to remind all boaters enjoying the fall season on the water to follow these tips to ensure that their excursions are both safe and enjoyable. • Before heading out, be sure to check the weather forecast. The mixing of warm and cold air can quickly spawn high winds and waves making it treacherous for small boats. Fog, too, is an issue at this time of year making visibility difficult. * Should boaters find themselves in a fog bank, they should proceed slowly and sound their horn at regular intervals to alert other boaters of their presence. • Well into October, daytime temperatures can occasionally be balmy but dressing for the water temperature will help slow the onset of hypothermia should the unexpected happen and the boater find himself in the water. This is where an approved lifejacket, either inflatable or inherently buoyant, is an essential part of a boater’s wardrobe to keep them afloat after they can no longer swim.

Scout fundraiser teaches life skills Community - Kids heading back to school, leaves changing colours and cooler evenings all mark the change in season. But for Scouts Canada, the arrival of fall means it is time for children and youth to learn important life skills and strive to earn scholarship money. Over the next few months, tens of thousands of Scouts across the country will participate in Scout Popcorn, Scouts Canada’s national fundraiser, along the way they will learn important life skills, gain scholarship money and raise funds for local Scouting programs. Through the Scouts Popcorn program, youth cultivate valuable business skills such as financial responsibility, marketing strategy development, time management skills, and in the process, develop confidence and positive self-esteem. SCHOLARSHIPS

Scouts who raise $2,500 or more will also become eligible for a scholarship fund. These Scouts will see six per cent of their total sales that year, and each year going forward, invested in an account for their post-secondary education expenses. Since the program began in 1995, 827 Scouts have been enrolled in the scholarship program. Additionally, proceeds from the fundraiser go back to local Scouting to help pay for items and activities which enhance the Scouting experience, such as camping equipment and national and international trips. “We are grateful for the Canadians from coast to coast to coast that have supported Scouts Canada through Scout Popcorn,” said Andrew Price, chief commissioner for Scouts Canada. “Their support of the program goes a long way in helping us enhance local Scouting programs and provide children and youth opportunities to benefit their future.”

Cancer Foundation celebrates success of $50M campaign

Canadian Citizenship Not For Sale Canadians know that it is an honour and a privilege to be a citizen of this country. That is why our government continues to take action against those who lie, cheat and scam the system by fraudulently obtaining citizenship or permanent residence status in Canada. In December 2011, under the leadership of former Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney, our government launched an aggressive initiative to target these fraudsters and send a message that Canadians citizenship is not for sale. At the time, it was revealed that nearly 6,500 people from over 100 countries were being investigated for lying about their presence in Canada in order to maintain status as a permanent resident, or in order to become a citizen. In September 2012, the number of investigations rose to nearly 11,000. In the past year, there has been an increase of approximately another 1800 investigations and our government has revoked citizenship from 27 people who obtained it illegally. This is a huge increase when you look at history. From 1976 until 2011, only 60 citizenships were revoked. In May of this year, former CIC Minister Kenney announced that a former citizenship judge, an immigration consultant and an employee of the accused consultant had all been arrested by the RCMP and charged as part of a citizenship fraud investigation. More recently, the new CIC Minister, Chris Alexander, congratulated the RCMP on charging Basem Farid Awaad of Nova Scotia. Awaad was charged with two counts of Counseling Misrepresentation and two counts of False Representation. Awaad will appear in court on December 5, 2013. These fraudsters hurt everyone. By illegally obtaining permanent residence or citizenship, these people have access to taxpayer-funded social benefits including health care and education. This means that honest Canadians have to pay more out of their own pockets to subsidize these scammers. Our government is committed to maintaining a system of immigration which attracts the world’s best and brightest. By also cracking down on those who try to abuse our generosity, we can ensure the long-term prosperity of our great nation.

This Cancer Foundation is the driving force for cancer survivorship in our community, and thanks to their vision and leadership local cancer patients have access to some of the best treatment and care in the country.” The campaign engaged the community to raise funds to support the most important and urgent cancer needs in our community. Donors surpassed the $50 million goal by contributing just over $54 million over the past nine years to local cancer priorities. And every single dollar raised stays right here in our community to help our family, friends and neighbours, should they ever hear those three terrible words: “You have cancer.” The first phase of the campaign was led by Rabbi Reuven Bulka with second phase

co-chaired by Fred Seller and Charbonneau. All three were on hand at the celebration and shared their personal stories about what motivated them to devote years of their lives to raise funds for our community through the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. For Charbonneau, the Courage Campaign was a passion. It was one that started more than a decade ago after being diagnosed with colorectal cancer that had spread to his liver. The prognosis was not positive. His physician at the time, Dr. Hartley Stern, who was leading the Regional Cancer Centre, asked Charbonneau to help raise money for important cancer projects through the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. “Keep me alive, and I’ll keep fundraising for cancer,” Charbonneau said, adding, “It’s 10 years later, I had to fight off cancer three times but I’m still here and I am cancer free. And, I’m still raising funds for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. I always will.” Funds raised through the Courage Campaign are invested in key projects including those which provide care closer to home; shorter wait times for diagnosis and treat-

ment; overall quality of life and access to research and new therapies. Under the campaign, the Cancer Foundation and its donors became the largest individual philanthropic contributor to the new Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre with a grant of $5 million. This expansion has allowed for approx. 1,300 more patients visits every year. An additional $7 million was pledged to the new Irving Greenberg Family Cancer Centre at the Queensway Carleton Hospital to ensure that 3,000 additional cancer patients can receive treatment in our community closer to home. The Cancer Foundation has been a long-standing supporter of cancer clinical trials and state-of-the-art equipment like the CyberKnife and the daVinci robot – allocating million of dollars to these projects. And because of their support more than 2,200 people are taking part in cancer clinical trials and nearly 1,500 people have been treated on the CyberKnife and daVinci robot.

Planning and Growth Managementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Neighbourhood Connection OfďŹ ce has created and launched a great new online Neighbourhood Toolkit. The web-based resource is a one-stop, do-it-yourself resource site available on www. Ottawa.ca for community groups who want to conduct and manage their own small-scale, resident-driven projects that creatively utilize public space. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about making creative use of public space and the Toolkit will help them do just that. This is not only good for community associations, but also for schools, service clubs, parent councils, and even high school students needing to do community projects. Everyone can ďŹ nd information themselves using this tool, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for a list of Business Improvement Areas (BIAs), information about their neighbourhood, where they can ďŹ nd space for a community meeting, tips on starting and completing projects, practical tools like project checklists, and even how to fundraise. Overall, the Toolkit offers exactly what groups need to implement a neighbourhood project. Also included are inspiring examples of neighbourhood projects, and all just a mouseclick away. We know that neighbourhoods are changing, and residents want to be engaged in shaping their local public spaces in a very real, hands-on way. People want to get creative, to get involved and do things that make their communities more walkable, more liveable, and more distinct. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Place makingâ&#x20AC;? is becoming a real trend and this Toolkit allows people to do just that. With the Neighbourhood Connection OfďŹ ce, Vanier is doing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;way ďŹ ndingâ&#x20AC;? system of signs that tell people how far it is to walk and bike to points of interest and other amenities, and Leslie Park is revitalizing a once popular, but now overgrown natural pathway beside a creek through a park. Brewer Park is even installing an innovative garden Biodome structure to produce food year-round â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the ďŹ rst of its kind in the area. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud to say that our city is at the forefront among cities in Canada taking this step of having a Neighbourhood Connection OfďŹ ce and a Toolkit like this. This Toolkit is focused on inspiring residents to get involved in making their neighbourhoods more liveable, by doing projects that make creative use of public space â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether urban, suburban or rural. As a City, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to have staff going into each of our over 100 neighbourhoods and helping them do these kind of smallscale projects. But with the online Toolkit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; neighbourhoods are now given the kind of information and tools theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need. Members of community groups told their local Councillors this is the kind of Toolkit they need, and now here it is. Please visit www.Ottawa.ca to use the Neighbourhood Toolkit or email neighbourhoods@ottawa.ca if you have any questions. http://www.janharder.com

Committee decides Can-Am League is best baseball option

OCTOBER 10TH -24TH

AA ball price tag was $40M

SALE

Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - After dreaming of an AA baseball team, Ottawa will instead be settling for the return of a Cam-Am league franchise in 2015. City council balked at the proposed $40-million price tag of bringing a AA minor league, professional team to the Ottawa Baseball Stadium in Overbrook and asked staff to go back to the drawing board. The only option that made ďŹ nancial sense is a $4.75-million contract with the low-level Can-Am league, which ďŹ elded a team called the Ottawa Rapidz that lasted one unsuccessful year in 2008. Mayor Jim Watson called the Can-Am proposal â&#x20AC;&#x153;a realistic and affordable planâ&#x20AC;? that is good for baseball fans and taxpayers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an opportunity to put this facility to the use that was intended â&#x20AC;Ś and also open it up as a community space,â&#x20AC;? he said. The main savings are in the cost to the city to ďŹ x up its Coventry Road stadium. While the minor league team would have needed to see $40 million in taxpayer-funded repairs and upgrades to the 20-year-old facility, the Can-Am league is comparatively a bargain, requiring about $750,000 in ďŹ xes and upgrades up front. The annual net cost for the city to operate the stadium will be $400,000, said city manager Kent Kirkpatrick, but that will rise to $650,000 by 2018. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley was the only member of the ďŹ nance and economic development committee to vote against the deal during an Oct. 1 meeting. He questioned why the city is in the baseball business when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting out of things like operating a municipal golf course and discontinuing the Nepean equestrian park. During the meeting, councillors wanted to know what the $40 million would have included, but that information is secret because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of Mandalay Baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conďŹ dential bid the city rejected. The city and many of its baseball fans had set their hopes on a team afďŹ liated with the Blue

Jays. Instead, Ottawa will get a franchise in a six-team league that is not afďŹ liated with the major leagues. The team will play 50 home games a season, leaving time for community events at the stadium, according to a city staff report. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans was critical of the plan and questioned why the city would tie its hands with a baseball contract just as the construction of light-rail near the stadium site could boost the propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value for sale and redevelopment. Watson said light rail provides an opportunity to give the stadium and baseball games an attendance a boost. David Gourlay of Champions for Ottawa

There is an opportunity to put this facility to the use that was intended. MAYOR JIM WATSON

Baseball said the process of stirring up fan support and lobbying for a pro team has shown him that there are not enough ďŹ nancial resources or partnership opportunities right now to make a AA team viable here. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, baseball belongs here and an afďŹ liated team would be a good choice,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly, we are not there now.â&#x20AC;? Supporting baseball in Ottawa would have required city council to recognize its beneďŹ t and invest in it over the long term, which hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happened, Gourlay said. If the Can-Am experience goes well, it could pave the way for a higher-level team in the future, said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who has long promoted baseball in the city. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other baseball champion, OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette, said the contract guarantees there will be less loss to taxpayers and See MAYOR, page 29

city to partner with a company that has “deep pockets” and possibly sell the stadium. That option isn’t on the table now because there is “no appetite” to see the facility torn down, the mayor said. It would cost $367,000 in utility and minor maintenance costs to keep the stadium sitting empty, city staff said. The Can-Am League was originally established in Ontario and Upstate New York in 1936 and folded a number of times before restarting in 2005. Nearby teams include Trois-Rivieres and Quebec City. Can-Am teams play an interleague schedule with the American Association, another independent league.

creates a foundation the city can build on. The proposed contract with the league, which still needs council’s final approval, would give Can-Am a 10-year lease and two five-year options to renew. It also recommends the city seek additional tenants, likely sports-related, to rent office space in the stadium. Some councillors wondered whether that was enough of an out for the city in case a better team came along or it became obvious that selling and redeveloping the land would be more beneficial to the city.

First funeral co-op in Ottawa offers options michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - People living in the Ottawa now have an affordable funeral option thanks to the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst funeral co-operative. The doors ofďŹ cially opened for the Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa on Oct. 2. The co-op, located across from Beechwood Cemetery, on St. Laurent Boulevard is offering its members and the public the opportunity to hold a funeral at low cost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not geared to make a proďŹ t, but to pass savings along to members,â&#x20AC;? said the co-opâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president, Mark Goldblatt. He said the idea has been in the making for the past four years and he is happy that this day has ďŹ nally come. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope the community will respond, members are ultimately in charge,â&#x20AC;? Goldblatt said. The co-op already has 550 members -- people who signed on before there was a viable business plan, which the president said, was not an easy task. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They signed on basically because they felt, like us, it was a good idea,â&#x20AC;? Goldblatt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They believed in what we were doing.â&#x20AC;? Membership costs a one-time fee of $20 and offers a 10 per cent discount on any of the services. The co-operative is also open to the public, offering funeral services at cost, meaning people looking for an affordable funeral could get something like a casket for as little as $50. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a far cry from the $6,000 board member Beverlee McIntosh said she paid when her husband died

with the ďŹ rst one being founded in Sudbury, Ont., in 1952. In Quebec and Prince Edward Island, the concept of a funeral cooperative is well established, with La Cooperative funeraire de lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Outaouais having 12,500 members and handles about 70 per cent of all funerals in the Outaouais region.

I felt alienated by the whole process when my husband passed,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt more like if they could sell more to me, the better.â&#x20AC;? McIntosh said she is happy to know that other grieving families now have another option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a time when you are just saying to yourself, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get through this,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? McIntosh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At other funeral homes, they are trying to make a proďŹ t. Here you have a compassionate funeral director and you know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not based on proďŹ t.

Mayor reschedules speech on Ottawa’s transportation future City needed time to mourn after bus-train crash: Watson Laura Mueller

R0012325003

laura.mueller@metroland.com

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 city’s draft transportation master plan – a blueprint outlining the city’s transit, road, cycling and pedestrian priorities until 2031. “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,” 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 city’s plans for where and when to extend lightrail 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.

Public information sessions for the transportation master plan (including the plans for pedestrians and cycling) will take place on the following dates between 4 and 8 p.m.: • Oct. 15 at city hall, 110 Laurier Ave. W. • Oct. 17 at the Kanata Recreation Centre, 100 Walter Baker Dr. • Oct. 22 at the Walter Baker Sports Centre, 100 Malvern Dr. • Oct. 24 at the Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex, 1490 Youville Dr. MASTER PLAN

The city’s transit commission will consider the transportation master plan on Oct. 16 – before all of the information sessions have happened. Consideration of all parts of the transporation master plan, including pedestrian and cycling plans, will take place during a Nov. 15 transportation committee meeting. The infrastructure master plan and the Official Plan will be discussed by planning committee on Nov. 8. The city plans to wrap up the concurrent review of its master plans – an exercise the city has deemed “Building a Liveable Ottawa” – when council considers all the plans at once during a Nov. 26 meeting. Council’s approval of the corresponding Official Plan Amendment bylaw would take place Dec. 11. Plans are available at ottawa.caliveableottawa and comments can be submitted by email to planning@ottawa.ca.

Covenant Chain Link is reconciliation in action Community - Covenant Chain Link is an annual Ottawa-based event for people interested in learning more about the role of education in the evolving relationship between aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples in Canada. Education was identified by the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples as key to realizing a new relationship between aboriginal and nonaboriginal peoples in Canada; one based on sharing, respect and the recognition of mutual rights and responsibilities. Since October 2010, First Nations, Inuit and Métis organizations and individuals, school board representatives, teachers, students, church groups, independent educators, education consultants, and members of the general public have gathered at Covenant Chain Link to explore our common history, exchange ideas and just get to know each other in a safe and open environment.

A highlight of this year’s event is Paulette Regan, whose book Unsettling the Settler Within: Indian Residential Schools, Truth Telling and Reconciliation (UBC Press, 2010) is a non-fiction bestseller in B.C. and was short-listed for the 2012 Canada Prize by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences. Unsettling the Settler Within argues that non-aboriginal Canadians must undergo their own process of decolonization in order to truly participate in the transformative possibilities of reconciliation. Regan believes non-aboriginal Canadians must relinquish the persistent myth of themselves as peacemakers and acknowledge the destructive legacy of a society that has stubbornly ignored and devalued

Indigenous experience. It is a compassionate call to action. This year’s event will also include guest speakers, panels, workshops and the chance to learn about available resources and to meet local people working in the same area. A focus is on youth and there will be youth-led panels and workshops. In early 2010, individuals from KAIROS: Canada, aboriginal organizations, school boards, and the United, Presbyterian, and Anglican churches came together with an idea to use education to build bridges of understanding and respect between aboriginal and nonaboriginal people in the Ottawa area. They called this initiative Covenant Chain Link in honour of the Covenant Chain, an alliance between the Iroquois confederacy and the British colonies of North America. Embodied in the Two Row Wampum treaty, the Covenant Chain respects the dignity and integrity of the two peoples involved. Covenant Chain Link is now in its fourth year.

Kaitlin Corporation Loyalist Country Club Community now in phase seven Established community near Kingston, Ontario, offers ideal retirement lifestyle in a tranquil setting, minutes from the city and on a championship golf course BATH, Ontario – You’ve waited long enough for retirement. Why wait to enjoy it? At Kaitlin Corporation Loyalist Country Club Community near Kingston, Ontario, you can start from the moment you move in. “We are an established community,” says Kaitlin sales representative and Loyalist community member Ted Custance, noting that the development is well past the halfway point. “Other lifestyle projects promise amenities but are still in the planning stages. At Loyalist, our golf course and country club activities are already in full swing.” Equal distance between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, with Syracuse, N.Y. an hour-and-a-half to the south, Loyalist Country Club Community is Kaitlin’s signature golf course development in the picturesque town of Bath, 15 minutes from Kingston. Every home is either a detached bungalow, bungalow with loft or bungalow townhome, ideally suited to empty nesters or zoomers approaching retirement and interested in main floor living. Phase Seven, available now, is a grouping of 44 spectacular lots backing onto the 12th and 17th holes of the Loyalist Country Club, an 18-hole championship course that will be hosting a PGA Canada Tour event in 2014. Each home purchase includes membership to the club, providing access to clubhouse fitness facilities, billiard room, library, member’s lounge, outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, for a minimal annual fee. Homeowners also receive a discount on golf. “These homes not only back onto spectacular links, they also offer easy access to boating, fishing and water sports on Lake Ontario,” said Custance, noting that the area is like a mini Ottawa. “We have

culture, sports, dining, recreation; whatever interests you, you’ll find it here.” The latest phase features six detached bungalow and bungalow loft floor plans ranging in size from 1,415 to 2,922 square feet. Boasting large rear-facing windows, front and rear covered porch areas, and views of scenic fairways, they are priced from $364,990. Exterior features include maintenance-free quality siding with brick and stone elevations; painted architectural trimmings; maintenance-free aluminum soffits, fascia, eaves troughs and downspouts; and, fully graded lots with sod. Interior highlights include crafted cabinets in kitchens and bathrooms; quality ceramic tile; luxury 35 ounce broadloom; and, oak pickets and handrails with oak stringers on stairs to second floor.

Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, October 10, 2013

Community - The Canadian Red Cross has launched its 11th annual poinsettia campaign, which runs until Nov. 14. During the campaign, Ottawa businesses can support the community by purchasing Red Cross poinsettia plants to decorate their offices for the holiday season. Businesses can also order poinsettias as gifts for staff, suppliers or customers through the employee-client gift program. With an order of more than 20 plants, personalized, co-branded tags are included with each poinsettia. The plants will be delivered by Red Cross volunteers from Nov. 26 to 30 to offices across the city. The funds raised by the campaign will support Red Cross programs and services in Ottawa, such as: * Emergency support like food, shelter and clothing during disasters – from a fire in a single family home, to a storm that has affected the entire region. Ottawa branch volunteers also respond to national and international disasters, such as the flooding in Alberta this past summer. • RespectEd violence and abuse prevention programs, delivered at the invitation of schools and community organizations. • Health equipment loans including wheelchairs, crutches and walkers to people recovering from injury, illness or surgery.

• First aid services for community events, as well as first aid courses available to individuals and groups. “Without the support of the community through fund raisers such as the poinsettia campaign, Ottawa volunteer’s ability to support the vulnerable in our communities would be a challenge” says David Fraser of the Canadian Red Cross. HELPING MILLIONS

Each year, more than two million Canadians use Canadian Red Cross programs and services. In Ontario last year, the Red Cross: • Responded to 561 disasters • Assisted 6,813 people through Red Cross disaster services • Trained 10,481 people through disaster preparedness workshops • Loaned 15,109 pieces of health equipment • Provided Red Cross first aid training to 210,745 people • Reached 18,129 youth through RespectED workshops • Delivered 4.1 million hours of home support services • Provided transportation rides to 339,821 clients • Had 385,361 participants in Red Cross swimming and water safety programs

Fright nights aim to thrill at Watson’s Mill Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – Anne Currier’s ghost will be the least of visitors’ worries as zombies, witches, ghouls and goblins take over the historic Watson’s Mill in Manotick this Halloween season. For three frightful nights in October, a labyrinth of dark deeds and evil scenes will thrill even the bravest souls who walk into the mill to face their uncertain future. Bubbling cauldrons watched by the wartiest of witches will give way to a pantry of pickled body parts, creatures and other unidentified preserves. Guests should watch out for hungry

zombies as they make their way to the torture chambers in the basement. The ghoulish gathering begins Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. and continues each night until Saturday, Oct. 26 at 10 p.m. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. Haunt Nights was created in partnership with the Manotick Village and Community Association, and Watson’s Mill education officer Cam Trueman hopes the new event will make the mill accessible to people who otherwise might not visit. “I’d like to see about one person a minute, so about 200 or 300 people a night,” he said. “In time it will gain momentum and bring more people to

Student zombies like those played by Maya Desrosiers will rise again at Watson’s Mill Oct. 24 to 26.

the village.” That could raise as much as $5,000 to support regular programming at the mill. Trueman said he has wanted to create a haunted house like this since he started working at the mill. “It’s fun,” he said. “It’s an excellent way to get youth involved at a place they normally might not visit.” About 45 youth volunteers from area schools will bring the spooky scenes to life, something organizer Janice Domaratzki said is exactly what the MVCA hopes to encourage among local teens. “It’s all about engaging youth,” she said. Maya Desrosiers, a Grade 11 student at St. Mark Catholic High School, said she volunteered because it sounded like a fun way to get involved. “I don’t like to be scared, but to scare others is awesome,” she laughed. Grade 10 student Tyler Whitteker said he is especially excited to spook people who aren’t paying attention. His strategy will be “sneaking up to people in the darkness,” he said. The MVCA will sell Halloween treats at the door and families are welcome to attend, although the haunted house is not recommended for children under 10. For more information call 613-692-6455. To volunteer in the haunted house email manotickyouth@rogers.com.

Public Meetings All public meetings will be held at Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West, unless otherwise noted. For a complete agenda and updates, please sign up for e-mail alerts or visit Public Meetings and Notices on ottawa.ca, or call 3-1-1.

News - Draft rules for how the city intends to deal with bulky homes that tower over their neighbouring residences will be presented at a series of upcoming meetings. The draft rules are the second part of a study on how low-rise infill homes fit into existing neighbourhood and follow Part 1 of the study that sparked ire from developers and mostly support from communities that are desperate to retain the feel of the neighbourhoods they love. The changes are aimed at cool-

ing some of the tensions that boil up when neighbours donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the size of a new home being proposed where there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one before, such as the practice of splitting up a lot that used to have one home and building two or three homes there instead. The draft changes will be presented at the following information sessions: â&#x20AC;˘ Tuesday, Oct. 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Sandy Hill Community Centre pre-school room, 250 Somerset St. E. â&#x20AC;˘ Monday, Oct. 21 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Tom Brown Arena hall, 141 Bayview Rd. â&#x20AC;˘ Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Glebe Community Centre main hall, 175 Third Ave. â&#x20AC;˘ Monday, Oct. 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Nepean Sportsplex Hall C, 1701 Woodroffe Ave. The draft changes are expected to be considered by the planning committee and city council in December. While the first phase of the infill guidelines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; currently under legal appeal from a group of developers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; focused on parking and greenery, the second phase gets to the heart of the issue: the height and mass of new homes in established communities inside the greenbelt. What was once a â&#x20AC;&#x153;trickleâ&#x20AC;? of infill applications is now a flood, said city planning manager Alain Miguelez. More than 1,600 applications for small-scale infill housing have been filed with the city in the past five years.

Making sauerkraut was a family tradition

T

he big wood barrel had been scrubbed with hot soapy water and a brush and put outside on the back stoop to dry in the sun. It would take days for it to be as dry as a bone and if the sky looked like a drop of rain might come down, the barrel was rolled into the summer kitchen until the threat was over. Dozens of big fat cabbages were already in the summer kitchen on a table Father had put together by putting three wide planks on two saw-horses. A new bag of coarse salt had been bought at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store. We were ready. This would be a Saturday night when there would be no going off to a house party or having neighbours in for a game of cards. This night would be reserved for making sauerkraut and the whole family would be doing the job. I had mixed feelings about the night we made the sauerkraut. Certainly the whole family was working together brought me special joy, but being the youngest of the ďŹ ve children my job was menial at best. All I was allowed to do was bring in more cabbages from the summer kitchen as they were needed. The old pine table had been stripped of its well-worn red and white oilcloth and the wood scrubbed clean by my sister Audrey. All

Hands had been scrubbed with a brush and hot soapy water and both Father and Mother wore long white aprons for the job. When the work-night started, on the table close to one end was the cabbage slicer. Father said it had been made by his great-great grandfather when he settled in Northcote generations ago. It looked like a long narrow wood box with no lid. In the bottom of the box was a sharp blade that Father said could be deadly if you accidentally ran your hand over it. The well-scrubbed barrel had been rolled into the kitchen right after supper and it sat close to the table at one end. Straddling the barrel was the wood box with the deadly blade which also, of course, had been scrubbed within an inch of its life. See SAUERKRAUT, page 40

Sauerkraut meant never going hungry Continued from page 39

wherever you make memories to treasure.

Now it was time to bring in the cabbages from the summer kitchen. Not all at once – they were kept out as long as possible, so that when they were finally shredded they would still be well chilled from being outside of the steaming hot kitchen. And that’s when I figured into the picture. It was my job to bring in the cabbages when Father said he was ready for another one. This meant I was constantly running back and forth – inside, outside. It also meant I missed seeing most of the actual job of shredding the big pale green heads, which didn’t please me in the least. But back in those days, a young daughter did exactly what she was told. There was no negotiating with a brother or sister to change jobs. It was Emerson and Everett’s job to peel off the very top leaves of each head of cabbage. Not one leaf more than the very top ones, either -- that would be sheer waste. Beside the table were two huge baskets into which went the outer leafs. They wouldn’t be tossed out in the back yard, where garbage was kept. No, these baskets of leaves would go to feed the pigs. This is where my youngest brother Earl came into the picture. It was his job to tear down the discarded cabbage into smaller pieces. That way, Father said, it was easier to make the feed go farther when it was finally tossed out to the pigs, mixed with other slop. Audrey sliced off the very end of the cabbage with a sharp butcher knife, and that too was tossed into the baskets by the table. Then that head was passed on to Father. With spotlessly clean hands Father fed the head of cabbage into the wood box straddling the barrel, running it back and forth over the sharp blade, letting the finely shredded cabbage fall into the barrel. Mother used a block of wood attached to a short pole (Father’s creation) and every so often Father stopped shedding as she gently packed down the cabbage.

Everything would come to a halt and with a measuring cup dipped into the bag of coarse salt, Mother would spread in a good amount. For some reason I was never able to fathom, the number of shredded cabbages was always enough to exactly fill the barrel. Not right to the top, of course, but with about 25 centimetres of what Father called “breathing room.” The very top of the shredded cabbage got the final toss of coarse salt, then a wellscrubbed stone – the same one we used every year – was the last addition to the barrel. The stone would make sure the cabbage was well packed-down. It took Father and three brothers

Everything would come to a halt and with a measuring cup dipped into the bag of coarse salt, Mother would spread in a good amount

to roll the barrel out to the summer kitchen. Of course the sauerkraut would not be ready to eat until it had been well fermented and was always best when the blasts of winter froze it solid. By then, which is something else I had trouble figuring out, the cabbage turned to sauerkraut and had settled down into the barrel. The amount was considerably less, I thought, than what had been put in that night in our kitchen. For days afterwards, I would sneak a peek into the barrel and would be met with the sharp tang of the fermenting cabbage. I would have a feeling of contentment come over me, because now I knew, deep in that awful Depression, it didn’t matter how bad things got, we would at least have sauerkraut to put on the supper table.

Lions, friends bowl for family memories Community - The Barrhaven Lions Club held their second annual Family Bowling Fun Day at the Merivale Bowling Centre on Sept. 22. All proceeds from this event will be used to purchase memory boxes for CHEO, which assist bereaved families by creating a special keepsake box in which to store memories at the time of the loss or their child. This memory

box provides each family with a special place in which to hold treasures of their child. It is specially hand-crafted and represents something tangible for loved ones to treasure and to share with others. Over 40 Lions and guests attended and had a fun time bowling and sharing fellowship while donating to this special cause.

PET OF THE WEEK

Pet Adoptions Hoju (A159296) is a lovable, seven-year-old, neutered male dog who was surrendered to the Ottawa Humane Society by his owner and is now available for adoption. He is a beautiful Siberian husky and border collie mix who isn’t looking to slow down any time soon and would love to find an active family with older children or teens to bring him on their outdoor adventures! Hoju has a nice thick coat that will require regular brushing in order to reduce shedding. Hoju has so much love to give and would like to be with his humans as often as possible! Are you looking for a partner in crime? Please consider adopting Hoju.
