News - Ottawa businesses are asking for relief from rising hydro rates this Christmas. Following a meeting of the Ottawa Council of Business Improvement Areas on Dec. 12, Alex Lewis, who heads up the Bells Corners BIA and Lori Mellor, who is the executive director of the Preston Street BIA, presented Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli’s constituency office with a letter demanding a moratorium on rising rates until a study can be done to look at the impacts on smalland medium-sized enterprises. “This is quick turnaround for us,� Mellor said of the letter. “But the council only meets quarterly. Once we had identified this as a concern, we wanted to present something to the legislature before it breaks until February.� The council represents 18 Ottawaarea BIAs, which, according to the letter, represents $4.5 billion in tax dollars. The letter was presented to Chiarelli and Premier Kathleen Wynne. The concerns addressed are largely in response to the release of the province’s long-term energy plan on Dec. 2, Lewis said.

News - Senior government officials said the first wave of Department of National Defence employees will move to the Carling Avenue campus starting in late 2015. During a technical briefing given to members of the media on Dec. 13, officials from Public Works and Government Services, Department of National Defence and Shared Services Canada outlined the six-year plan

to consolidate the defence headquarters in the former Nortel building. The government purchased the property in 2010 for $208 million. The retrofits and renovations will cost $506 million and another $41 million will pay for transition costs related to existing leases. The original estimate for the project was $790 million. Some of those savings are being credited to streamlining information technology costs as a result of the creation of Shared Services Canada in 2011.

The cost of the move will be mitigated by the $750 million in savings on the part of public works over the next 25 years. “A lot of the facilities we currently use are leased and are downtown, so they are costly to maintain and costly to retrofit,� a senior government official said. Defence department operational facilities will remain at Star Top Road, along with some downtown and Gatineau locations, but

Energy rate hikes bad for business: PC critic Continued from page 1

The plan mapped out the chosen generation methods for the province’s energy requirements while forecasting how that generation will impact rates going forward. Rates are forecast to increase 42 per cent by 2018, a figure which includes the scheduled removal of the 10 per cent Ontario clean energy benefit. That will mean an increase from $125 to $178 per month for the average household by 2018. The monthly average would rise to $210 monthly by the end of plan’s time frame in 2032. Of particular concern for Lewis was the extra cost for global adjustment, which is the cost for producing of all the kinds of energy that make their way into the grid. It fluctuates, along with the market price. “We are worried that your government’s increase of 42 per cent over the next five years, coupled with excessive global adjustment and debt retirement charges, will work against the very progress that organizations like Ottawa BIAs have worked so diligently towards,” the letter reads. Lewis said he hoped Chiarelli would listen to the concerns of businesses in his rid-

ing and across the city. Chiarelli wasn’t immediately available for comment. “The rising costs of electricity are crippling to small businesses,” Lewis said. Ottawa businessman Jim Sourges, chair of the Bells Corners BIA and owner of the Electrical and Plumbing Store, said time-of-use rates have been costly for businesses that can’t control their usage because of their hours of operation. For his Northside Road location in Bells Corners, Sourges estimated that his electricity bill has risen by $1,500 per month over the last five years. Lisa MacLeod, energy critic and MPP for Nepean-Carleton, asked the Premier about rising rates during question period at Queen’s Park on Dec. 10. MacLeod said she had met with owners and investors in the agrifood sector in Southwestern Ontario. “The owners and investors have indicated they if they don’t get their energy prices under control as a result of your mismanagement of that sector they’re going to have to leave Ontario,” MacLeod said. “That’s 400 jobs.” MacLeod added that the business she spoke with paid $60,000 in January for the global adjustment on their bill

– by September that amount was at $100,000. “Does the Premier think its fair for a business in Ontario to be paying $1 million towards the global adjustment when they are struggling to survive?” MacLeod asked. MacLeod said she hasn’t received an answer yet from the government about what they are going to do to reign in rates. She said the increased energy costs will mean higher costs for food production. “It’s going to make things more expensive, either because food producers will pass along their increased operating costs or they will move out of province and we will have to pay more for transport,” she said. MacLeod cited the auditor general’s report that named high salaries and pensions at Ontario Power Generation as some of the factors in rising costs. She said she planned to bring up the letter from the Ottawa council of BIAs during the Dec. 12 question period. “Residents are essentially subsidizes pensions they could never dream of through their hydro bill,” MacLeod said. “Someone has to take responsibility for that.” In question period Wynne said the government’s longterm energy plan takes costs out of the system and focuses

The letter asks for a moratorium on rising hydro rates. on conservation. She said PC leader Tim Hudak doesn’t have any plans to lower the costs of electricity. “We came into office in 2003 and we have been cleaning up the energy mess that was left by that party since that

day and we will continue to do so,” Wynne said. The council of BIAs is asking the province to put a moratorium on rising hydro rates until such time as a study can be done on the impact to small business.

Lewis said small businesses makes up 97 per cent businesses in Ontario and are important drivers of job creation and economic growth. With files from Steph Willems

First wave of DND workers move in 2015 Continued from page 1

the move will mean the number of locations in the capital region will be reduced to eight from more than 40. The Carling campus will house 8,500 employees when the final phases of the move happen. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli said the news is the best Bells Corners has had in the last 20 years. “Our entire recovery plan for Bells Corners hinged on the DND move,” he said, adding the city has been preparing for the influx of federal employees with projects like the $3 million improvement to the Robertson Road and Moodie Drive intersection. The Bells Corners Business Improvement Area also spent tens of thousands of dollars on a market gap analysis in 2012, Chiarelli said. The next steps are a community improvement project to help with the cost of updating infrastructure in the west end community and working with developers on the Canrill project – a redevelopment of the site of the former Vox Lounge. “This completes the picture,” Chiarelli said. Alex Lewis, executive director of the Bells Corners BIA, said the news is the positive change the

community has been looking for. “We have been working closely with our federal counterparts to ensure that the move takes place,” he said. “Businesses in Bells Corners are certainly ready to welcome the new customers.” The move appeared adrift a few times since the initial purchase in 2010, with rumours circulating that bugs and listening devices had been found at the site. Officials confirmed on Dec. 13 that a sweep of the building hadn’t turned up any bugs. Ottawa-Orléans MPP Phil McNeely also challenged the move by filing a complaint with the Commissioner of Official Languages. He argued the headquarter relocation would cause an exodus of Orléans residents and damage the francophone community. The new headquarters would only be 17 kilometres from the existing location and would be phased in, hopefully mitigating the impact to employees, said officials. Public works manages all government facilities and there is no word yet on the fate of the DND headquarters building on Colonel By Drive, but it’s likely it will house another government department.

Ministry offers break for stressed students Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Algonquin College students got a chance to pause for a cup of coffee and a snack during exam time thanks to a group of local churches. The pause break, which ran at the college from Dec. 9 to 13, was provided by members of the City View United Church in Nepean 10 years ago. It has now grown to a week-long event with volunteers from 11 churches offering up volunteers and food

for hungry college students. “This time of year students are stressed and maybe running a little low on money, so this was a way to help them out and let them know about the local Christian community,” Ruth Anne Carney said. Yuriy Derkach, the chaplain for the campus ministry, said it’s important to do Christian deeds to spread the word. “We think about the best ways to use our God-given talents and this was one of them,”

he said, adding that the ministry also holds a lunch and learn on campus every Wednesday for students of any faith. This year is the first time the program makes its way to the college’s Perth campus. “It’s been a real success,” Carney said. Marlene MacLean, who learned about the opportunity through her church – St. Patrick’s Fallowfield – said it was her first year participating and she was encouraged by the re-

sponses from the students. “They are all really appreciative,” she said. “I have had a lot of fun.” Pastor Maryann Turcott, who hails from Bethany Baptist Church on Centrepointe Drive, said there was a similar program when she was in university. “I think a lot of students think God doesn’t care about them,” she said. “This is a helpful, practical way to show them people in the community care about their well being.”

Local organization helps children who are at crossroads jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Crossroads Children’s Centre is the calm in the centre of a storm. The light blue and yellow hues of the centre’s therapy and free play rooms is meant to be inviting so clients can share their stories. The centre, which is on Courtwood Crescent, off of Maitland Avenue, was founded in 1995. It helps children under the age of 12 who have been in contact with the city’s police or fire services and hopes to turn them around before they end up permanently in the system. Take the story of Steven, a pseudonym given to a case child and youth worker Shannon Mullen is currently working with. The name has been changed to protect his identity. Steven was referred to the centre’s arson prevention, or TAPP-C program, through his school’s resource officer. Stephen had engaged in anti-social behaviours both at school and at home. “He was defiant, and there was some stealing,” Mullen said. The goal of TAPP-C is to intervene and build skills like anger management, social skills and problem solving strategies for kids and their families. The work usually begins at home.

Because of some trauma earlier in his life, Steven didn’t trust his parents to have his best interests at heart. “He wasn’t feeling supported,” Mullen said. “There was also a lack of trust on the parents’ side.” Mullen said in order to make the environment more positive, the parents had to look at Steven’s behaviour from a different light. “They had to understand things he was doing in light of past triggers,” Mullen said. “And he needed to be comfortable voicing his concerns. We worked on coaching the parents to respond in an empathetic way.” Barriers like traumas, learning disabilities and mental health concerns can cause some of the anti-social behaviours, but Michael Hone, executive director of Crossroads, said rather than writing kids off, society as a whole needs to work harder to remove some of those barriers. “A lot of people assume these behaviours are on purpose, but these kids would do well if they could,” he said. And the figures appear to bear that out. Crossroads gets funding from the United Way and the provincial ministry of Child and Youth Services. For the TAPP-C program, which receives referrals solely from schools, police or fire servic-

es, they measure a reduction of behaviour, no further contact with police and stability at home. For the last reporting period the improvements on the group measured were 85, 87 and 98 per cent respectively. Those figures are based on the organizations work with 50 clients. “We measure the results and set goals for the outcomes as a result of the intervention,” Hone said. It’s a collaborative approach. “I often accompany the parents into the schools to discuss how we can best accommodate the children for success there,” Mullen said. Mullen also looks to other community organizations to work with the family on related issues. While the environment for Steven is much improved, he will need to continue therapy, something Mullen said is currently being set up. “It’s never perfect, but now when conflicts arise, the family is better equipped to deal with them,” Mullen said. For clients with fire-setting behaviours, Hone said a representative from fire services talks with the kids about safety and makes sure all the alarms in the home are functional and the family has a fire evacuation plan. Hone says without the help of the United Way, Crossroads wouldn’t be able to do

ic and a community-based family support program. For more information, visit www. crossroadschildren.ca.

Feds slam door on mail delivery

T

he announcement that Canada Post will end home mail delivery in the next five years is the beginning of the end for mail service in this country. Reduced service and a higher cost is a death knell for any company. The cutbacks will no doubt be a self-fulfilling prophecy as cuts to service in turn cut into the current level of demand. Maybe the real plan is to sell off Canada Post. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rather sad that the federal government would announce this just as MPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leave on their Christmas break, leaving no chance for debate. The change will mean a great deal to seniors and folks with any disability that makes a trip to a community mailbox tricky. This will likely be an election issue in the future as seniors take their right to vote very seriously. Beyond delivery of letters, mail carriers do provide social interaction for people who may feel isolated. Carriers can also check in on seniors who live alone, and they act as the eyes of the community because they know residents and can report suspicious people. In the U.S., the postal service is legally required to deliver six days a week. In Britain, the Royal Mail has been privatized, although citizens can still

expect minimum standards will be met. Canada has geographic challenges unlike those countries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; greater distances and fewer people and pieces of mail. If the cutting of home delivery is carried out as planned, we may be headed for a private delivery service in the not-too-distant future. If Canada Post has no monopoly, we could see more delivery trucks from competing firms on our streets; not a good deal for the environment when one carrier can do the job. As the price of a stamp goes up and up, eventually those private companies may see their chance. The cost of postage will rise to $1 for an individual stamp next spring, meaning next time the holidays roll around, postage may cost more than the Christmas card inside the envelope. Our federal government is creating conditions for Canada Postâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure. The die has been cast, so make your voice heard. If home mail delivery is valued by Canadians, why should we not accept that the system may run at a loss? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our tax dollars are for: to deliver basic, important services to all. If you care about home delivery, tell your MP. It might be nice to send your thoughts in a letter. While you still can.

From Canada Post, the last Christmas card

I

t was a nice seasonal touch on Canada Postâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part to tell you that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve received your last Christmas card. It was beyond grinchy and a lot of us Whos down in Whoville donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it that much. Beginning next year, some five million of us, living in cities, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get mail delivery at the door any more. So why would we send Christmas cards to anyone living in cities? And why would any of them send cards to us? True, there is something faintly heartening about never again having to pick up a pen and scrawl 100 or so times that nothing much different happened and hope to see you next year. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the point, is it? Nor is it the point that this will increase the number of people telling us in electronic greeting cards that nothing much different happened this year. Leaving seasonal aspects aside, the point is that voodoo economics has made victims of us once again. Canada Post has decided, first, that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make enough money and, second, that the way to make enough money is to make itself irrelevant. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually work. We have seen this pattern, although less dramatically, in OC Transpo, where the

613-723-5970 Published weekly by:

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town response to economic difficulties has traditionally been to raise the fares and reduce the routes, thus creating a self-fulfilling prophecy of doom. Because Canada Post is selling fewer stamps it proposes to raise the cost of them. See the logic? At least OC Transpo never proposed to eliminate buses altogether. A couple of bad assumptions are at the root of all this. The first is that, in these changing times, door-to-door mail service is no longer needed and that people can happily walk to the community mailbox or whatever it is. Well, some people cannot walk happily anywhere. As we are constantly being reminded, the population of Canada is rapidly aging, providing us with even more people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk happily. Nice timing, Canada Post.

Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, December 19, 2013

As for changing times, they do not affect everyone the same way. Yes, there are people who do all their correspondence and all their bill-playing electronically. Yes there are people whose cheques are deposited automatically. Yes, those people probably donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need mail delivery at the door. But not everyone is like that, not even in cities. This is where the decision makers make the common mistake of assuming that the people on their street are the same as the people on every street. Just because everyone you know has several computers and WiFi in their homes doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean everybody else does. Further, even some of the people who are comfortable with computers are not comfortable entrusting their financial dealings to the Internet. That may be an overly cautious view but, heaven knows, years of reading about Internet fraud, identity theft and various other boondoggles has created a healthy skepticism. The second bad assumption is even more profound -- it is that Canada Post has to make a profit. Who says? For many years, the consensus was that if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public service and people need it, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason it needs to make money. The postal service was like the educational system.

That changed, 30-some-odd years ago, when governments began to be run by people who hated government. Many of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big thinkers grew up with Margaret Thatcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picture on the wall of their rooms in the fraternity house. If it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a profit, they learned, it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist. So there goes Canada Post. It will be interesting to see how this is received politically. At first glance, the decision appears to be a gift for opposition parties. They are fighting to see who can be first to stand up for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seniors. At least in the next election there will be one issue people can understand.

Canada Post trimming the fat, not killing the service

C

anada Post announced this month it will phase out door-to-door delivery in urban centres. Instead, consumers will be forced to collect their mail from a locked box in a centralized location. Many people were up in arms about the announcement, suggesting it was an affront to our democracy, a slight against the elderly and the disabled and an unprecedented move. “Conservatives are destroying Canadians’ long-treasured postal services,” said NDP Transport critic Olivia Chow in a statement. “These job-killing and service-cutting measures will isolate seniors, the poor and the disabled living in urban areas.” On the one hand, I agree with Chow. I know many seniors who already rely on friends, neighbours and paid services to get their milk, clean their homes and get them to doctors’ appointments. It seems unfortunate that they may have to outsource

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse mail collection as well. She’s wrong about the job killing though. Canada Post will eliminate 8,000 positions in the restructuring, but 15,000 of its employees are slated for retirement in the next five years anyway. Before we get too caught up in ideology, we need to look at the reality. Canada Post – like many of its global counterparts – has been bleeding money for years. In the digital era, the majority of people no longer rely on mail service for routine transactions like bill payments and income cheques. The same is true across the western world. As one pithy publisher I know said, if we lose door-

to-door service, it’s our fault. Don’t decry the loss of a service we don’t use. It’s like people mourning the death of hard copy newspapers, even though they haven’t purchased one in a decade, or those who protest the closure or reconfiguration of schools, despite the declining numbers of young people in this country. Yes, we need a postal service. But we don’t need a fat postal service, running on a 20th century business model propped up by our tax dollars. And let’s be clear about one falsehood touted by critics – centralized pick-up for mail is not unprecedented in this country. Many Canadians have

never had the privilege of doorto-door service and they’re probably wondering what all us urban foxes are whining about. When I was a kid, my family moved from the city to a small town. It became part of our daily routine to stop by the local post office to collect envelopes from behind lockand-key. Some people didn’t have a box, so they had to time their visits to match post office hours, which in those days was pretty limited. This still represents the reality in small towns across Canada. New housing developments have long been relying on centralized mailboxes. Those living in condominiums have to go to the main floor of their buildings to see what treasures await them behind lock-andkey. It’s not that big of a stretch to take this precedent into urban centres, especially if the cost-saving measures help us to maintain Canada Post’s status as a Crown corporation. Make no mistake, Canada Post had to cut back or be cut

out entirely. Britain’s Royal Mail – with a much longer and richer history than our own postal service – was privatized this year. While it was viewed as an enviable option by some in Ottawa, I personally think it’s crude to privatize what is still, for some, for the moment anyway, an essential service. Taxpayer-funded organizations are not purely about supply-and-demand, revenue and profits; they exist to level

the playing field, to fill gaps in private-sector offerings. At the same time, it doesn’t make sense for taxpayers to fund services at last century’s levels for the sake of nostalgia. Canada Post has made a bold decision. But in my mind, it’s a good one. And, at the end of the day, maintaining its status as a leaner Crown corporation, rather than privatizing, will likely serve to protect thousands of unionized jobs in this country.

McNamara will hand-deliver the messages and any additional funds following the event. The mission’s executive director Peter Tilley will attend the event to offer up information about what the organizations does, and who it helps.

“I know we all have different opinions on homelessness,” McNamara said, “but we can all agree that something has got to change.” The idea is that people can drop by any time between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “I’m hoping entire families will show up to show their kids what I mean by, ‘a true holiday.’” McNamara said she hopes to raise at least $500, and hand out about 150 postcards to the men at the mission that night. More details about the event are available at kissypost.com.

Add broccoli to fitness goals

STEPH WILLEMS/METROLAND

Santa paws Pets were encouraged to hop in Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lap during the Ottawa Humane Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Critter Christmasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; event, held on Dec. 7. Seen here, Davis, a playful three-year-old male Yorkshire Terrier-Maltese mix who is up for adoption, makes a Christmas wish for a new home.

News - Broccoli is a healthy snack, but many of us would rather eat chips, right? But if we add a tasty-andhealthy dip â&#x20AC;&#x201C; say, spicy hummus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to keep choosing the broccoli. Same goes for pursuing our fitness resolutions: to increase our chances for success, we have to find and attach an effective incentive or â&#x20AC;&#x153;dipâ&#x20AC;? to our goal â&#x20AC;&#x153;broccoliâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;˘ Make an emotional connection to your resolution such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am going to the gym to keep up and have fun with my young childrenâ&#x20AC;?, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will eat more fresh fruit and vegetables to avoid the heart disease my mother had.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ Use photos to keep reminding yourself of the reasons behind your actions. â&#x20AC;˘ Have fun. If you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t having fun, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick with it. So make sure you are staying active by doing the things you love. â&#x20AC;˘ Commit to the smallest goal so you are ensured success. Instead of committing to going to the gym twice a day, seven days a week, commit to twice a week for four weeks. This will make it more likely that you will succeed, feel great about it and then do more.

Tackling Dementia I recently had the chance to sit down with Matt Dineen, a local resident, to talk about how Dementia has forcefully and unexpectedly made its way into his young familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Mr. Dineen is a teacher, husband and father of three young children. In January, his wife Lisa was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD). Here is his story: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost two months after the diagnosis, the unfortunate circumstances which this evil disease had wrought, necessitated that Lisa (a highly-educated 44 year old woman) be placed in a secured unit in a long-term care facility here in Ottawa. Since then, I have been without spouse and the children have been without a mother.â&#x20AC;? Unfortunately stories like this seem to be more and more common. It is an issue of importance for countries across the globe, which is why on December 11th, our Government attended the G8 Dementia Summit in London, England. By working together with other nations, we can harness the best research, innovation and partnerships to help prevent or delay the on-set of dementia. We can also collaborate to improve the quality of life, care and treatment of those afďŹ&#x201A;icted with this disease and their families.

News Canada

In the recent Throne Speech, our government pledged to renew investments in research that will tackle the growing onset of dementia-related illnesses. In fact, since 2011, we have increased our support to 44 research projects in universities and hospitals on Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and dementia-related diseases across Canada. However, many of the challenges we face cannot be tackled by governments alone.

A trusted community.

We continue to work alongside private sector researchers and innovators to help tackle this growing problem. Focusing on the good research and applying it into practical ideas and care models will allow our government, the provinces and the private sector to address this issue. By funding this research across Canada, we are hopeful that tangible improvements can be made to the lives of those affected by this troubling illness. We look forward to building on these strong collaborative partnerships at home and abroad.

Power protest A large crowd of protesters gathered outside Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carling Avenue constituency office on Dec. 7, angry over the massive hydro rate hikes announced by Chiarelli earlier in the week. The provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Long Term Energy Plan calls for electricity bills to rise by 42 per cent within five years, on top of the already significant increases seen over the past few years. The protesters stated the hikes will affect the economy, with the hardest hit being elderly and low-income residents, as well as business owners.

Planning committee chairman to review Westboro plan Richmond/Tweedsmuir development discussion prompts secondary plan review Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city is willing to take another look at the secondary plan for Richmond Road/Westboro, despite the community association saying that idea had been denied. The discussion came up during the planning committee’s consideration of a controversial rezoning for a ninestorey building at 236 Rich-

mond Rd. – a site community association representatives are convinced should only be allowed to have a four-storey structure. The community’s interpretation of land-use policies for the strip has long been at odds with the city’s planning department. Intense controversy over the rezoning of a convent site to be replaced with condos is just one example of the strife. Part of the issue is that

while the community design plan for the area, which just serves as a guideline, indicates to limit buildings to four storeys, the more enforceable secondary plan that supersedes the guidelines allows taller structures if certain conditions are met. At least one community group – Westboro’s community association – wants the community design plan reexamined. They’ve told their councillor, Katherine Hobbs, that much. But she says not all residents are in agreement with reviewing the secondary plan – many like it the way it is, which is what she heard from

some people at the Westboro Community Association’s annual general meeting this fall, when she brought up the issue again. “I had people screaming at me that the CDP was absolutely fine … and that they did not see the need to reopen it,” Hobbs said. Members of the community successfully used the CDP and secondary plan to defend their appeal of a rezoning they didn’t like at 335 Roosevelt Ave., so those residents want to keep the plan, she said. Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume, chairman of the planning committee, said he was told the community didn’t want to update the community design plan. Sending a letter to Hobbs and the city would “absolutely” get that process underway, Hume said. Hobbs said there has always been a commitment on her and the city’s part to have another look at the plan if the five community associations agree to it. “That commitment hasn’t changed,” she said. Hobbs said there are four community associations in

her ward that have an interest in the plan and not all of them have sent official letters to her to express their support for a review, as she requested a year and a half ago. “I just can’t move ahead on this without the express, written direction from these neighbourhoods,” Hobbs said. The suggested review wouldn’t be done in time to impact the planning committee’s decision on 236 Richmond Rd., which it approved with an amendment to the setbacks on the east side of the building to ensure the tallest portion of the building above its podium base would be set back 2.5 metres. That was important to Hume, who bemoaned the style and particularly the blankness of that east wall. “I am not really impressed with the design of the building,” Hume said. Adding a requirement from the city to include windows and other detail on that wall will “add considerable expense and difficulty,” said Lloyd Phillips, a planning lawyer working on behalf of the builder, Main and Main

Developments. While arguing against the setback earlier in the meeting, Phillips said he didn’t think adding articulation to the building’s facade would make much a difference in the perceived height of the building – an argument that has frequently been made by other developers arguing for more height for their projects. The new building would be located next to the LCBO and Real Canadian Superstore and backing onto the Richmond Plaza Motel on a lot that used to house a gas station and garage and more recently, a used-car lot. It will have a four-unit retail/commercial main floor and 70 residential units above. Sixty underground parking spaces will be provided – four more than required by the city. There will also be spaces for 29 bicycles in the garage. The worst of the shadowing would mostly affect the street, and at the most shadowy time on Dec. 21, the building would shade nearby homes for about two hours in the morning until noon.

Infiniti Rakes in Awards by Brian Turner

Recently, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, industry giant AOL Autos announced it selected Infiniti’s Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) as a finalist for its 2013 Technology of the Year Award. Available on Infiniti’s QX60 and QX60 Hybrid luxury crossover, BCI is an advanced active safety system that can detect objects the driver may miss when backing up and even apply the brakes momentarily to get the drivers attention. AOL Autos’ annual Technology of the Year award recognizes vehicle manufacturers from around the world who have elevated the industry by incorporating technology into their vehicles that advance the connectivity, telematics, active safety and fuel economy of cars and trucks on the road today. Following an online popular vote at AOL Auto’s website (completed as of this date), this year’s winner will be announced at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. But that’s not all for Infiniti’s flagship crossover. For eight years, IntelliChoice.com and AutoPacific.com have teamed up for the annual Motorist Choice Awards, recognizing vehicles that marry both high consumer satisfaction and outstanding ownership value over time. This year, IntelliChoice recognized the Infiniti QX60 twice, as the premium segment winner in both the “People Mover” and “Kid Friendly” categories. Each year, AutoPacific polls more

than 50,000 new vehicle buyers on 48 key attributes, determining overall buyer satisfaction with their purchase. Concurrently, IntelliChoice monitors cost of ownership metrics for more than 2,000 different models and trim lines to compile a holistic view of what a car might cost over a five year period. Results from both AutoPacific and IntelliChoice are aggregated into one analysis that recognizes vehicles scoring high in both categories, The Motorist Choice Awards. Not to be outdone by its bigger cousin, the QX50 took a major award recently. Kelley Blue Book (kbb.com) recognized Infiniti’s QX50 in the highly competitive Luxury Compact SUV/Crossover class as having the best resale value among its peers, citing it offers an “intriguing combination of sportiness, sophistication and practicality.” Infiniti’s Q30 Concept, the next step in Infiniti’s strategy to expand into new premium segments, made its North American debut recently in Los Angeles. The sleek, seductive Q30 Concept is the design vision for a compact Infiniti vehicle with a contemporary, individualized character for a new generation of premium customers. The compact premium segment is forecast for significant growth with the entry of young-minded affluent customers. “The Infiniti Q30 Concept is highly predictive of a new head-turning premium compact that we will launch in early

2015,” said Michael Bartsch, vicepresident, Infiniti Americas. “It is the perfect addition to our current portfolio of advanced sports sedans and coupes, luxury performance crossovers and full-size SUVs.” “The Q30 Concept has a compact footprint geared to the global trend of younger customers entering the premium sector in search of a product that suits their urban lifestyle,” added Bartsch. “The concept’s vision is to be the alternative to the practicality and conformity in the compact car segment.” The shape of the Infiniti Q30 Concept deliberately challenges convention – fusing the dynamic design and sportiness of a coupe, the roominess of a hatchback and the higher stance and visual presence of a crossover. Infiniti designers were given the freedom to explore seductive alternatives to traditional premium automobile brands. “Research among the new generation of buyers - with Gen X and Gen Y soon to represent 80 percent of the market - shows an increasing rejection of traditional notions toward premium cars,” said Bartsch. “These buyers are less willing to connect size, presence and high-output power as key ingredients of the premium product. Rather, they’re looking more for balance, great design and outstanding execution.”

Instead Mike, Jenn, Jim, Sean, and Kirk will take the time to explain in understandable terms, exactly what needs to be done, how much itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cost, and when it will be ready. When a customer drives off after picking up their car at Cooleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation rides with them and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave anything to chance. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why in the sometimes difďŹ cult world of automotive repairs, Cooley Automotive stands out with a Better Business Bureau A+ rating. Cooleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is open Monday to Friday from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm and keeps unheard-of Saturday hours by appointment. If you want to know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to deal with a repair provider who looks out for your interests call Cooleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at 613 829 2057 or log onto

Scots invite city to traditional New Year celebration Event offers taste of Hogmanay Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - People from across Ottawa are invited to get a little Hogmanay-wild at city hall to celebrate the arrival of 2014. TD Hogmanay â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 is a free Scottish-styled New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Eve party taking place at city hall, starting at 6 p.m. The event, complete with haggis, whisky and a whole lot of Scottish music and dancing, promises to offer a good time for the whole family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to bring a flavour of modern Scotland to Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? organizer John Ivi-

son said of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People really took to it.â&#x20AC;? Back again this year, the volunteer-driven event is aiming to surpass the 7,500 people who took part last year, Ivison said.. The party kicks off with a social gathering complete with dancing and music, Scotch tasting and skating at the Rink of Dreams. Back by popular demand,

there will also be Braveheart face-painting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a unique opportunity for Canadians of all backgrounds to come together in a moment of fun and celebration â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in both typical Canadian and Scottish style,â&#x20AC;? said Kevin MacLeod, chairman of the Scottish Society. The evening will include a Scotland time zone countdown at 7 p.m., and it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a Scots New Year celebration

without a little fire, so at midnight, fireworks will light up the sky over city hall. Scottish folk-rock legends Wolfstone, local band Ecosse and a Celtic band from Hamilton, Ont., Poor Angus, will each perform during the night. Fiona Hyslop, cabinet secretary for culture and external affairs with the Scottish government, said Scotland and Canada have strong links reaching back through history

and these bonds continue to grow and thrive today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Hogmanay event will help celebrate our shared history and recognize Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achievements and ambitions in the 21st century,â&#x20AC;? Hyslop said. OC Transpo service will be free after 8 p.m. and parking at City Hall is also available for free, making it easy to make the trip downtown for the event.

Program to create suicide-prevention communities in schools Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A local group is looking to create suicide prevention “gatekeepers” in two local high schools. Students and staff at Glebe Collegiate Institute and West Carleton Secondary School will be the first to benefit from three years of Ontario Trillium Foundation funding in the amount of $183,000 for Ottawa’s Community Suicide Prevention Network to provide a high school peer support program. The goal is to build schools’ capacities to address mental health concerns and prevent suicides. The network will tackle that goal in three different ways. “It’s about building shepherds, not necessarily identifying weaknesses,” said Joanne Lowe, executive director of the Youth Services Bureau and co-chairwoman of the suicide prevention network. Young people are talking to each other about mental health issues and suicide, so arming them with useful information on how to react and how to connect their peers with resources is critical, Law said.

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Joanne Lowe, executive director of the Youth Services Bureau and co-chairwoman of the Community Suicide Prevention Network, speaks at a Dec. 6 event reporting on the network’s activities and launching a new program in local high schools. First, the program will involve youth leaders in schools by training them to deliver mental-health programming to fellow students with a special focus on inclusion for gay, lesbian, bisexual, two-spirited and questioning students. Young people will also have access to Source of Strength training, which provides instruction for student leaders

on how to engage and connect with their social networks to promote the idea of seeking help and link their peers with caring adults. The training teaches young people how to see their challenges through a lens of awareness of the resources that are available to them when things get tough. “It’s an amazing, evidencebased program,” Lowe said.

“It’s to build resilience within the school staff and a sense of acceptance for diversity within the schools. “It’s going to open a lot of doors,” she said. At the same time, the initiative will provide safeTALK training all staff members at the schools, as well as young people and parents. The training helps people assess suicide risk; make referrals to appropriate resources; and build awareness about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues and the effects of homophobia. The programming will eventually be offered to six Ottawa schools over the next three years, but it will get underway at the Glebe and West Carleton high schools in the new year. A total of 2,511 students and 192 staff at both schools will take part in the program in 2014. Combining all three of those approaches will create a powerful effect of awareness in schools, said France Thibault, principal at the Glebe school. While many of her staff already has safeTALK training, the new program will make that education and those values universal.

“The teachers are very excited to take it,” Thibault said. “They want to help kids,” added Reg Lavergne, principal at West Carleton Secondary School. The project is particularly exciting for schools and school boards because it will strengthen their connections to community partners, Lavergne said. SUICIDE PREVENTION REPORT CARD

The Community Suicide Prevention Network got underway in 2010 and this year marked the first time it provided a report on its activities. With a simple goal of preventing suicides in the community, the network brings together a number of local groups to build awareness and capacity to tackle suicide. The network held Ottawa’s first summit on youth suicide

in February of 2012 to support recognition of what members of the community can do to respond to young people in mental health crisis. A suicide prevention day was also declared on Sept. 10. The network also produced a guide called Know What To Do, which discusses how to react and offer help when a young person is having suicidal thoughts. The guide is available by calling 613-729-0577 ext. 1252 and the information is also posted at facebook.com/ preventingsuicide. A “lifeline” for parents and families was also set up. Offered 20 hours a week, the service provides access to “family navigators” who can consult with families that don’t know where to turn in a mental health crisis. The Parents’ Lifelines of Eastern Ontario can be contacted at pleo.on.ca or by calling 613-321-3211.

Mental health resources: • Youth 24/7 crisis line: 613-260-2360 • Crisis line for adults aged 16+: 613-722-6914 If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, attend the emergency room of any local hospital.

Energy saving tips for homeowners News Canada

As winter settles in and Jack Frost nips at our noses, energy costs tend to climb. But we don’t have to take drastic measures to reduce sky-high energy bills. Take a look at these simple changes that can be made to everyday routines to put money back in your wallet: UNPLUG

Rid your home of phantom energy by unplugging electronics and gadgets. Even when not in use, appliances like your TV, toaster and computer are

on standby mode and still suck energy. To eliminate this waste, unplug your home electronics when they aren’t in use.

next time you’re washing your clothes. More information is online at tide.ca. SLOW COOKING

EMBRACE THE COLD

Wash and rinse your clothes in cold water. Worried cold water won’t be as effective as hot? Think again. Detergents like Tide Coldwater are specifically designed to work in cold water conditions and are just as effective at removing stains and odours. Better yet, washing with Tide Coldwater can save you $7 per load in energy costs so consider turning down the dial

Nothing warms the soul better than a home cooked meal that has been simmering all day long. During the winter months, try using a slow cooker instead of the oven. Despite the longer cooking times, slow cookers use less energy than ovens. COZY UP

Install a programmable thermostat in your home to reduce

your energy costs. During the winter months, set the heat a few degrees lower during the day when you aren’t home. For those extra chilly nights, try grabbing a sweatshirt, adding an extra blanket or cuddling up to your loved ones. These options keep you toasty warm and put money back in your pocket. LET IT RAIN

Though a long soak in the tub can be tempting, showers use less energy than baths. For even more energy savings, keep showers short and choose a lowflow shower head.

Councillor Comments By Jan Harder

For a few years now I have understood that seniors’ needs in Barrhaven were ever increasing and that this growth and lack of a variety of services needed my attention. Now that the Minto Recreation Complex – Barrhaven is well underway and with it knowledge of just what services are available at the new Sports Centre it’s time to move forward with a refresh of our dear 33 year old Walter Baker Sports Centre. To that end the $200,000 approved in budget 2008 for a rejuvenation of the WBSC will now be used. Headed up by Kevin Wherry as Program Manager I am pleased to say a 5 member Public Advisory Committee has been established. Barrhaven residents who have agreed to serve are Rick Fleming who will take on the role of Chair yet again. Rick was Chair of the PAC I established for the Minto Rec complex. Rounding out the five are Marilyn Cameron, Ryan Kelahear, Elena Pierce and Paul Lynch. The Walter Baker Sports Centre has long been Barrhaven’s hub. Like the new facility we have pools and rinks and even more space within the structure. That being said you only have to walk the halls to understand that there is more usable space available if we plan wisely. Located in the older part of Barrhaven I see one of the focuses for the WBSC including “seniors built services”. With the fitness programs we have in place, with the programmable meeting space in the Ruth E. Dickinson Library and access to Sachi’s restaurant right across the corridor I believe we have a real opportunity to provide a good place for folks in Barrhaven who rightly are saying “what about us”? I want to thank the group of seniors who approached me at my Fall Open House with concerns regarding activities and space for seniors in Barrhaven. Clearly we don’t have the options that Kanata and many places in Ottawa have for seniors. We had a great discussion. Recently over 30 older folks met with staff and me to begin the process of identifying just what opportunities we were looking for and I asked for volunteers to sit on an advisory committee to oversee the larger group. This group met with Karin Flaten who is the new Portfolio Manager of the Walter Baker Sports Centre and Tony Westenbroek, Program Manager Public Services at our Ruth E. Dickinson Public Library. Since our meeting, Karin has sent a link to a survey on-line for Older Adults 50+/Senior Activities. This survey is available on-line until December 22, 2013 at ottawa.ca/en/ residents/older-adults. I encourage you to have a look and make your comments. This survey can be completed on-line, returned to the Walter Baker Sports Centre in person, by Fax at 613-825-6762 or scan and e-mailed to WBSC@ottawa.ca. If you are not able to access the survey online, you can drop by my ward office, which is located at the back entrance (beside the library entrance) of Walter Baker to pick up a survey. In addition to programs that keep them active, older adults and seniors are looking for a space to hold morning coffee hours, watch movies, play cards and many other activities without leaving their community. I am actively working with them to make this happen, as it is essential for Barrhaven residents to have the opportunity to enjoy space in their community and at their community recreation centre. How essential? Very, the number of older adults and seniors living in Barrhaven and in the City are growing substantially. According to the 2011 census, the number of older adults and seniors living in Barrhaven is 16,535 with the total population of Barrhaven being 71,447. This represents a strong percentage of Barrhaven residents and shows clearly the need for older adults/senior programs in our community. Of course the study of the Walter Baker will not be only about older adults. It is and will continue to be a welcoming place for all and I welcome input from the community at large as we begin this review.

Candlelit vigil honours victims of violence Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - A woman walked to a podium set up outside the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre and asked to take the microphone during a candlelit vigil for victims of violence on Dec. 6. She stood in front of the crowd of people, gathered to remember and honour those who lost their lives at the hands of others. She asked them to also remember those who are still here. “I know we are here to remember all the women who are dead today. They are not living. They are victims of violence,” the woman told the crowd. “I’d like to tell you a short story about a victim of violence who chooses to live. “She’s alive today and she’s victimized and needs justice.” Two years ago, this woman attended the vigil, shedding tears because she could relate. She knew what it was to suffer abuse at the hands of others. She was victimized by a supervisor at work and harassed and abused by her partner of 14 years. She didn’t know where to turn. “She didn’t know how to speak,” said the woman. “She remained silent.” The day she found her voice, her partner left her and her three young children. The day she spoke against her supervisor at work, she was fired. Of south Asian descent, she didn’t have the support of her family because “women are not allowed to speak in front of men,” said the woman. Now at the age of 39, she has a heart condition and is forced to use handicapped parking because she can no longer walk properly. She doesn’t have a warm home. But still, she chooses to live, said the woman. “She chose to stand up.

Stand up against all those people who wanted her to suffer in silence because she’s a girl. Here is the victim in front of you. Who chooses to live.” After her impromptu speech, the woman posed a question to the crowd and city hall officials gathered at the vigil. “Does the City of Ottawa only light candles for those who are dead? Or are they able to provide support for victims who are living, who choose to live?” she asked. Shoulders straight, voice clear, the woman thanked everyone for listening. She walked back to her three children, who were grouped by the door, and hugged them. The four of them left before the vigil was finished. “Those stories are the powerful stories. They’re the real life experiences of people, and today is a big step forward in making that change,” said Cathy Jordan, executive director of the resource centre. “Tonight is about remembering, but it’s also about action. To me, action is hope. This is a community that cares and the evidence is clear when I see how many people took time out of busy lives to attend tonight’s vigil; and in numbers caring becomes power – power to speak out and recognize violence against women, power for each of us to take action however we can in our lives, and power to work together to end violence against women. This is our opportunity to take hold of this power and renew our commitment.” The annual vigil is held on the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women to honour the 14 women killed in 1989 by a psychologically disturbed gunman at École Polytechnique. The day also recognizes all women and children impacted by violence. Members of the Kappa Sigma fraternity at Carleton Uni-

versity attended the vigil this year, as they have in the past. Alex Anderson said it’s an important issue that needs to be addressed by everyone. “The message needs to spread,” said the south Ottawa resident. “This is still a problem today, gender inequality. It’s 2013 – it needs to change.” WE MUST STOP BEING AFRAID

Another woman walked to the podium to share her story. Kimberley, the vigil’s guest speaker, told the crowd about her family’s experience with abuse at the hands of her exhusband. There were always long periods of calm punctuated with violence throughout her 20-year marriage, she said. It started on her honeymoon and only continued to get worse. “I gradually lost all selfconfidence and self-esteem over the years and blamed myself for all the moods, as he did,” said Kimberley, who has two daughters. “If only I could have been a better wife, all would have been well. If only the kids would behave better. If only.” In 2008, she received a call that would change their lives. Her then 12-year-old daughter phoned her at work, begging Kimberley to come home because her father was acting crazy. “He was so angry that she and her sister were forced to hide in the basement because they were afraid he was going to hurt them,” she said. “They were used to these kinds of rages but this time they were scared.” That night, one of Kimberley’s daughters told her that her father had threatened them: “Either one of you two is going to die, or I am.” “My blood ran cold and I knew then if I didn’t take action I would be putting my life

and the lives of my children at risk,” said Kimberley. She left her home with her daughters the next day. Kimberley filed a police report and her husband was arrested and restraining orders were put in place. She was put in touch with a social worker at the police station who helped her navigate the uncertain waters. Kimberley asked the social worker how she could have allowed herself and her children to be abused. “I was strong, I was educated, I have a good job. How could it happen to me?” asked Kimberley. The social worker told her: “It’s because you’re strong that you became a victim of abuse. Abusers typically go for strong women because they don’t ask for help.” Kimberley said she realized the truth of those words – despite having a close family she felt she couldn’t go to them. She began to forgive herself. In 2010, the divorce became final. “I won full custody, and the right to hand over spousal support, half of my house and half of my hard earned pension. It was worth every penny,” said Kimberley. “My lawyer told me that despite the fact she typically represented women who had been abused, it was only the second time in her career that no access to the children was granted. The judge actually understood, finally, the damage from all the violence.” Kimberley and her daughters joined a support group at the resource centre for mothers and their children who have experienced domestic violence. “When my lawyer told me about the services that are offered here, I was completely unaware that there was a social support network that would catch me if I left the abusive situation I was in,” Kimberley said.

JESSICA CUNHA/METROLAND

An unnamed woman gives an impromptu speech, sharing her personal story of surviving violence at the hands of abusers at the Dec. 6 vigil, hosted by the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. Once, she told her family doctor that her husband tried to choke her. “(The doctor) put him on anti-depressants and made no further attempts to insure my safety and my children’s safety. We have to speak out against this total ignorance and bad judgement made by professionals in the healthcare system. Their apathy is dangerous,” said Kimberley. “I struggled with the idea of speaking here tonight – I’m a private person – but I need to give back now and my daughters insisted that I tell our story. If I help to raise the awareness of the terrible toll of violence against women and children, then this has been worth it. Lives are ruined and lost because we’ve been too afraid and ashamed to speak. We must stop being afraid.” Violence against women crosses all cultural, religious,

economic and age classes. National statistics say that 50 per cent of Canadian women have experienced at least one incident of physical or sexual violence after the age of 16, said Mayor Jim Watson, who attended the vigil with councillors Marianne Wilkinson, Eli El-Chantiry and Shad Qadri. And it continues to happen in neighbourhoods across the city. “We need to continue to stand together, men and women, to speak out and educate, to make a change for the better in our community and our society,” said Watson. “Seeing the outpouring of care and concern of the women and men taking part in today’s vigil shows our city is coming together to speak out with one voice.

KEITH EGLI Ward 9 Knoxdale-Merivale Happy Holidays: With Christmas right around The corner, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the residents of Ward 9 a very Merry Christmas. Councillor Rick Chiarelli will be holding his 21st Annual Alcohol Free New Year’s Eve Party again this year at Ben Franklin Place on Tuesday, December 31st, 2013. This year’s theme is Pirates and Princesses. People are encouraged to participate by dressing as their favourite pirate or princess because the best costume will win a prize. There will be singers, magicians, jugglers, indoor games, dancers, face painting, a skating party on the outdoor rink, bouncy castle, sleigh rides and of course, fireworks. The event starts at 6:00 p.m. with an ice skating show, and ends with fireworks at 10:00 p.m. Everything is free and everyone is welcome to attend as Nepean residents ring in the New Year. Community park benches and tables: I have been working closely with our community associations and have received their input and suggestions on locations where they would like to see additional park benches and tables placed in our parks. Among the options for the table is a multi-use game board template which would facilitate playing of a variety of board games like chess, checkers, etc. Additions like these will allow our Ward 9 parks to be more user friendly for residents of all ages. Installation of benches and tables will begin next summer.

For more information on activities in the ward and at City Hall, please sign up for my newsletter by visiting ward9@ottawa.ca. Until next time, Keith

Think tank petitions for robocalls inquiry derek.dunn@metroland.com

SUBMITTED

Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Merry Christmas Mayor Jim Watson selected a design by Nepean student Kevin Leahy among 500 submissions for his Christmas card for 2013. Kevin is now in Grade 6 at St. John the Apostle School, and lives in the Nepean area. He designed and submitted the card last year while he was in Grade 5. Watson presented Kevin and his family with a framed copy of the card at city hall on Dec. 5. The card will be sent to thousands of people on the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas list.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The number of groups calling for a public inquiry into the robocalls scandal continues to grow. The Council of Canadians has an online petition asking for in inquiry to â&#x20AC;&#x153;bring to justiceâ&#x20AC;? the person or people behind voter suppression during the last federal election. The think tank also wants parliamentarians to table electoral reform legislation that incorporates Elections Canada recommendations. Election fraud occurred during the 2011 campaign when someone allegedly used Conservative Party of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data to dissuade Liberal and NDP voters from reaching the correct polls. The federal court found that an unprecedented, covert and widespread strategy of voter suppression was perpetrated. The group is worried that Canadians have lost conďŹ dence in

the democratic process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Serious deďŹ ciencies in the antiquated Canada Elections Act have hampered the commission of elections from prosecuting those involved in the fraud,â&#x20AC;? reads the petition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only urgent and meaningful action by the Government of Canada to remedy this fraud will restore the conďŹ dence of Canadians in our electoral process and our democracy.â&#x20AC;? Ottawa Centre New Democrat MP Paul Dewar said it remains to be seen if a public inquiry is necessary, but that there is no mistaking that Elections Canada is â&#x20AC;&#x153;under resourcedâ&#x20AC;? and has lost credibility through its handling of the robocalls scandal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a systemic problem. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chronic voter suppression,â&#x20AC;? Dewar said, who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go so far as to call the perpetrators fascists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Machiavellian at minimum, and it represents that Republican, neo-con view of the world that its power at any cost.â&#x20AC;?

He indicated that the NDP has picked up on what conservative stalwart Preston Manning used to call for before his party came to power in 2006: election ďŹ nancing reform, open and transparent government.

Fundraiser gets permanent in the Market Tattoo parlour offers a different way to give back Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - A local shop in the ByWard Market wants people to get inked for a good cause. For $80, Living Colour Tattoo will permanently give interested individuals a way to remember giving to charity this year by way of a holidaythemed tattoo. The shop’s tattoo artist Jamie Kleinveld created the event in an effort to raise money for the Christmas Exchange Program, a program through the Caring and Sharing Exchange. “I think when it comes to charity, every little bit helps,” Kleinveld said. “It’s nice to give back to the community. They don’t take long to do and it feels good to help out.” This is not the first time the parlour has contributed to the community at Christmas time. Last year, Kleinveld offered a similar holiday tattoo promotion, with money raised being

donated to Toy Mountain. In November, the tattoo artist inked seven tiny moustaches on Ottawa bodies to help raise money for prostate cancer. “For me, it’s a way to create art,” she said. “It’s not just about donating money to a cause. Like most tattoos, it can also help people commemorate something in their life too.” The themed tattoos include a snowman, Rudolf, a gingerbread man, a candy cane heart and a stocking. Kleinveld said her favourite is the candy cane heart. “I tried to include some images that were festive but still common enough that some people who might hesitate to get a Christmas tattoo would be able to enjoy as well, such as the dove, the snowflake and the bow,” she said. Kleinveld was this year’s winner of the organization’ s annual Christmas Exchange Ornament contest and said the idea for the fundraiser came out of that. “I think the ornament turned out beautiful,” Kleinveld said. “It’s really neat to see something I drew on paper turn into a real product, and I am glad I could be part of such a neat project.” The ornaments are avail-

able at Hallmark Davis Agency stores for $25, and feature copper which once covered the roof of the Parliament Buildings from 1918 to 1996. The Caring and Sharing Exchange began in 1915 as the Christmas Exchange program, offering both food hampers and Giant Tiger gift cards to low-income families as well as offering co-ordination for the many social service organizations and programs in the city, including co-ordinating gift-giving for the Salvation Army’s Toy Mountain. Last year, more than 23,000 people in Ottawa asked for assistance, with 10,502 people receiving help. According to Caring and Sharing’s executive director, Cindy Smith, the need is great to ensure families receive assistance. “Last year, despite the generosity of the Ottawa community, we were unable to meet the need, leaving more than half to go without,” Smith said. “This year things are looking better, but we still have a large waiting list at this time.” The small tattoos, Kleinveld said, won’t take up much of her time, allowing all the proceeds of the fundraiser to go to the program.

City looks to allow more corner stores Mom-and-pop businesses could promote walkability, entrepreneurship Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Facing stiff competition from big-box stores and even drugstores with growing food sections, the formerly ubiquitous corner store is going out of fashion. In addition to business pressures from competitors, the disappearance of convenience stores is also due to city policy, said Alain Miguelez, the city’s program manager for zoning and intensification. Many of the shops are located in residential areas where land-use zoning doesn’t actually permit businesses to operate. “When a store closes, it can’t come back,” Miguelez said. The city wants to know if residents would like to see more mom-and-pop stores in their neighbourhoods. The city’s planning department is undertaking a study to see if there are appropriate locations in Ottawa’s urban residential areas where the city should allow “low-impact businesses” to continue, or where new businesses should be allowed to open up shop. Miguelez said the city is looking to promote livable, walkable neigh-

bourhoods that have services located where people live, whether it’s a convenience store, barbershop or laundromat. Chris Penton of the Vanier Community Association said the study will be especially beneficial for his neighbourhood, as the area is in need of more retailers. Having businesses located where people live will give them a reason to get out and walk around their community and perhaps meet a neighbour they wouldn’t otherwise encounter, Miguelez said. “But we’re not looking to create little main streets,” he added. Re-zoning entire residential streets for business use is not on the table, he said. Rather, his department is looking at small pockets, likely on high-visability corners, where an entrepreneur could establish a successful small business that is supported by its surrounding neighbours. With cutbacks in government jobs, unemployed workers might look to entrepreneurship as the next stage in their careers, and starting with a small storefront would make that possibility more accessible to new business own-

Bytown gets spooky this Christmas season Haunted Walk dares you to go into old museum at night Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - If you are looking for a way to shake in your winter boots this holiday sea-

son, take a ghostly walk to the Bytown Museum. Haunted Walk Ottawa and the Bytown Museum will host Nightmare Before and After Christmas this month, offer-

ing brave souls the opportunity to hear a few Christmasthemed ghost stories on Dec. 21, 27-28. “This is just a fun, overChristmas-time event at the museum,” said executive director Robin Etherington. “The building is known for ghosts, we don’t go that way with our programming and that’s why we partnered with

R0012320839

Don’t start this Autumn with a fall!

Haunted Walk, they have the freedom to do that.” The Bytown and Haunted Walk Ottawa have co-hosted a Halloween walk for the past 10 years. This will be the second year the two will partner for a holiday scare. The majority of the tour will take place inside the museum, starting first on Sparks Street walking towards 1 Canal Lane. Sandy Trueman, operations manager for the museum, said she is excited for the event, as there are often many visitors in town for the holidays who are looking for something to do. New to the museum herself, Trueman said she has yet to experience anything too spooky in the building, but has heard ghost stories from fellow employees. “It’s always a little spooky here,” Trueman said. Haunted Walk manager Jim Dean said the Bytown is the city’s oldest stone building, and with age, he added, comes a little ghost-related history. “There are some tour guides who refuse to do tours in the museum,” he said.

The perpetrator is a ghost named Duncan McNab, a former store keeper at the Bytown. McNabb, Dean said, was known as a trickster and when it comes to haunting, McNabb is known to be the trickiest of them all. “One time I was in the Bytown, setting up for one of the Halloween walks,” Dean said. “As I was walking up the staircase I heard the sound of footsteps behind me, I turned, and there was no one behind me so I continued up the stairs and heard it again only this time it seemed to be right behind me. I don’t get scared too easy, but that had me scared.” Many of Ottawa’s oldest buildings are thought to be haunted, Dean said. “We forget that in the early days of Ottawa it was one of the most dangerous cities,” Dean said. “There were upper town and Lowertown gangs and lots of violence. Murders were very common, the history was a violent one and a lot of the ghost stories we hear, whether it’s from the Bytown, the old jail or one of the other old buildings -- they connect to that history.”

Not getting into too many scary details, Dean added that one time a group of tour guides holding a meeting at the Bytown late at night all ran from the building. “It’s one of the most haunted buildings, there is often a real sense of fear,” he said. When it comes to any type of haunting during this walk, Dean said, it will be more about spreading a different kind of holiday magic. “It is almost like Halloween has its own feel, as does the holiday season,” he said. “Christmas has its own magic – there is already this sense of magic and wonder and our walk will play into that.” The walk will include ghost stories and frightening tales of holiday traditions from around the world. The 75-minute tour departs at 8:15 p.m. on Dec. 21, and 27-28 from 46 Sparks St. Tickets are $15.75 for adults, $13.75 for students, $9.75 for children age six to 12 and children under six are free. To find out more information about the walk or to purchase tickets please visit hauntedwalk.com or call 613-232-0344.

Holiday Retirement What can I expect at a Holiday Retirement residence? A common misconception about retirement living is that you’ll be giving up your lifestyle. But that’s not the case at Crystal View Lodge and The Court at Barrhaven in Nepean, Ontario, where you’ll enjoy your own private suite (and yes, pets ARE welcomed!) That means you can do things on your schedule, and eat the exceptional food you’re used to having. More specifically, you can expect three delicious meals per day prepared by professional chefs, all to be enjoyed in a spacious dining room with new friends. You’ll always have people close to you that care. That includes the live-in managers, who treat the residents like family and are available day and night. All units are equipped with an emergency call system that can be used around the clock if needed.

Your misconceptions about retirement living will disappear in a hurry when you choose these residences. You can even choose a trial stay if you’re still not sure. Oh, and one last thing – this one is huge – both residences are part of Holiday Retirement, which has a network of 300 residences in the U.S. and Canada. The company’s travel program allows residents to enjoy the same comfort in another residence location at no extra cost!

You’ll also reap many other benefits including a weekly housekeeping and linen service, complimentary shuttle service, free laundry facilities, fitness room, guest parking, billiards lounge, and the list goes on.

For Christ is born of Mary; And gathering all above, While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wondering love. O morning stars, together Proclaim the holy birth, And praises sing to God the King, And peace to men on earth. How silently how silently, The wonderous gift is given! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of His heaven. No ear may hear His coming; But in this world of sin, Where meek souls will receive Him, still The dear Christ enters in. O Holy Child of Bethlehem, Descend to us, we pray; Cast out our sin, and enter in; Be born in us today. We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel.

Shirley Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memories made for sombre holidays Seward

Listening, Learning and Leading

M

y sister Audrey, I thought, was the smartest girl at the Northcote School. And I knew for a fact she was the smartest of us ďŹ ve children. Couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t she braid grass, knit dishcloths, do cross-stitch on tea towels, and recite the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prayer and the 23rd Psalm without forgetting a word? So that day in December it was my very clever sister Audrey who told me a secret about our mother that I believed with all my heart to be the gospel truth. It also explained why Mother did the things she did on occasion. Audrey said there was a perfectly good reason why Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind sometimes seemed to be a million miles away around Christmas time. I certainly was aware that her thoughts often seemed to be somewhere else, especially when I asked her a question about our own Christmas which was coming up, an occasion which ďŹ lled me with great anticipation. The day I asked her if she thought if I wrote a special letter to Santa Claus, and asked him for a pair of white galoshes with real fur down the fronts, just like bad Marguirite had, would I get them? I saw a sadness come over her face. She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t answer right away, and when she did, I noticed a catch in her throat, as if she was going to cough, and she said I had to remember that Santa had a long list of children

MARY COOK Memories who wanted some things he just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supply. I knew then, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be seeing the white rubber galoshes with the fur down their fronts. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too sure what Mother had to do with Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. But I soon understood what my sister meant when she said sometimes our motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind was a million miles away. It was the middle of December. It was time to put up the few decorations we had. There was the braided rope made of thin cardboard loops glued together and strung across the kitchen, corner to corner. There were the two hand-made wreaths for the frosted kitchen windows, and the big picture of Santa thumbtacked to the stairwell door. Mother sat and looked at what had been done to try to make the kitchen (the only room in the house warm enough to sit in during the winter), presentable for the holiday season, and she let out a long sigh. Audrey said Mother was remembering the many Christmas decorations she had when she lived in New York, and which she had described to my sister. Things like silver bells for the outside of the door, candlesticks made of pure white

wax, and glass holders in the shape of small pine trees for the dining room table. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have a dining room on the farm in Northcote. Audrey said this time of year Mother tried, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get her Christmases in New York out of her mind. She remembered shopping in Macyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department Store, having money to buy just about anything she wanted, glass decorations for the big tree in the parlour, and wrapping paper and ribbon in every colour in the rainbow to wrap the many presents she would buy. After Audrey explained it, I understood that Mother secretly pined for all she had left behind in her beloved New York to come to the backwoods of Renfrew County, where every penny was hard-earned. Instead of going to the city bank for money, Mother went to the blue sugar bowl in the back-to-the-wall cupboard to take out a few pennies from her â&#x20AC;&#x153;egg money.â&#x20AC;? My sister said it was sometimes a sad time for Mother, even though the rest of the family was all caught up in the Christmas spirit out there in Renfrew County. Audrey said I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to think it was anything I had done to make mother sad. That made me feel better. Not a lot better, but a little better just the same. Audrey said to me that I was to try to make our mother forget about her life in that far-away city, and it had nothing to do about being

good she said. It had everything to do with trying to keep Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind busy in our home out there in Northcote. I asked Audrey how I could do that, and being clever like she was, my sister had the perfect answer. I was to say often how pretty the kitchen was with its handmade paper streamers stretched across the room, how I loved the smell of her mincemeat pies, and how I loved going into Renfrew with her when she delivered her wares door to door. That seemed simple enough to me. I like to think it worked, as I took my wise sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice to heart. That year was not unlike any other Christmas on the farm during those lean Depression days. As the day grew closer, Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mood changed. Baking consumed many hours. We ďŹ ve children could hardly contain our excitement. The Christmas concert was ahead of us, the smell of the big pine tree already in the corner of the kitchen ďŹ lled the room, and there were whispers of secrets not to be shared. There was joy in the house. We would be celebrating the true meaning of Christmas in the Lutheran Church, neighbours would come and go, and we would return their visits. And Mother, for a time, put behind her the memories of another time and another place. Get an electronic copy of Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books at smashwords.com.

Mushroom quesadillas an easy appetizer Lifestyle - This is a delicious appetizer or snack. For a party, the filling can be made ahead of time, then rewarm and fill the tortillas just before baking. Preparation time: 25 minutes. Cooking time: 10 minutes. Baking time: 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 32 wedges. INGREDIENTS

• 25 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil • 125 ml (1/2 cup) diced red onion • 500 g (1 lb) thinly sliced Cremini mushrooms • 4 cloves garlic, minced • 15 ml (1 tbsp) dried tarragon leaves • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) each salt and pepper • 180 g Chèvre (soft goat cheese),

crumbled • eight, 18 cm (7-inch) whole grain flour tortillas • Vegetable oil cooking spray PREPARATION

In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Cook the onion until it is softened, about two to three minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for five to seven minutes or until starting to brown and liquid is released. Add the garlic, tarragon, salt and pepper and cook for one minute. Remove from heat.

Feminism is a human rights issue many of whom have their own families to support, out of a job. You refer to this traditional â&#x20AC;&#x153;nuclear familyâ&#x20AC;? as if this is an ideal utopia to strive for. Family households are blended, headed up by same sex couples, and provided for by single mothers among many other family structures. We are in the 21st century and our society needs to adjust to the needs of women, men and our new â&#x20AC;&#x153;nuclearâ&#x20AC;? families. Feminism has given women a choice to work within the home, outside the home, and have opportunities past decades have worked hard to achieve. Women have shaped our economical, political and social sphere because of their position within the labour market. Feminism and the rise of women in the workforce has given financial independence, provided inspiration and role models for young

women, and the freedom to leave abusive relationships. My question to you is, why have you attacked women and left men completely out of the equation? Men need to additionally share the role within the household to make the family unit successful. Men need to support their partners, also have work-life balance in the workforce so they can share childcare responsibilities, and frankly step up to the plate. Men are a part of the feminism discourse, not the poor result of feminismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s destruction, in your own words. Yes Brynna, the laundry does pile up. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to our politicians, our workforce and partners to help put it in the machine this time. Katie Didyk Ottawa south

Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The failure of feminism; destruction of the family,â&#x20AC;? Column, Dec. 5. In response to Brynna Leslieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion article, I feel compelled to note the enormous disservice she has in fact done to women. I felt like I was reading an article attacking feminism that was commonplace in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s. Leslieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title has the reader assume that feminism is only a â&#x20AC;&#x153;womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issueâ&#x20AC;? when in fact itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a human rights issue. It involves both men and women in seeking equality for all. What we need to look at is how to improve the gross inadequacies in the workforce and change our rigid idea of what the family unit is today. Women, who by biological and cultural factures take on the majority of housework and childcare, need to demand better work-life balance and flexible opportunities at work without apology. An evaluation of our childcare system would show how hours do not reflect a typical work day therefore making it difficult for parents to drop and pick up children as they want

to. We have to look externally, at our archaic systems in place that do not reflect women in the workforce, instead of the easy critique that women are therefore not doing their caregiving role and are then unjustly accused of destroying the family. I agree that the child care and housework is undervalued, but I resent Leslieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wording. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider paying a nanny, a cleaner or babysitter to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;outsourcing,â&#x20AC;? assuming the parents have little connection to the process and outcome. I see childcare and house workers as a part of our labour market, and that we need to lobby and advocate for higher wages for these important roles. Your article, whether you intended or not, would rather see an end to this segment of the workforce, with hundreds and thousands of (women) workers,

West Ottawa caricaturist scores with hockey humour Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Arts - Randy Duncan scores with satire in his second book He Shootsâ&#x20AC;Ś He Skewers 2! 10 Minutes for Crosshatching. The Katimavik caricaturist has been drawing political and sports cartoons off and on since the mid-80s, amassing enough content to ďŹ ll two books, with hopes of a third in the near future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hockey is supposed to be fun and what better way of enjoying the game than laughing at it, with it, a bit of both,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hockey fan who sees this book is going to enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? Duncanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work spans the decades, with past greats and current stars all vying for space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mix of old and new,â&#x20AC;? said Duncan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no time period. The perspective is of a caricaturist looking back on the NHL.â&#x20AC;? Duncan got the idea for his ďŹ rst book, He Shoots... He Skewers!, after amassing a large number of sports cartoons. Originally, he was going to include various types

of sports, but narrowed his subject matter down to hockey by the time he decided to self-publish. Summit Studios picked up the ďŹ rst book and Duncan toured the country.

Hockey is supposed to be fun and what better way of enjoying the game than laughing at it, with it, a bit of both RANDY DUNCAN

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The book was done as a tribute to the stars of the NHL past and present as seen through a caricaturist eyes, my eyes. I had it span from the Richard-Howe era to the present, which at the time was 2009,â&#x20AC;? he said. His second book, in what he hopes becomes a trilogy, includes a number of humorous hockey hijinks, highlighted with captions that explain the satirical situations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I like the humour

overall better in the second book to be honest,â&#x20AC;? said Duncan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The humour is probably more consistent and I think it might be a little funnier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a follow up, this book picks up where I left off on the last one. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to once again balance between young stars and past greats, while focusing on the Original Six and Canadian clubs. Crosby, Ovechkin and the Sedins ďŹ gure prominently, as well as a good deal of Senators material.â&#x20AC;? Duncanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic career started in high school when he drew caricatures of his teachers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was always doing pictures,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You put them in kind of a goofy scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the teachers, I had done one of him before, and he said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you should be doing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Duncan studied ďŹ ne arts and graphics design at Concordia University, where he learned to hone his craft and play a little hockey on the side with the school team. As a backup goaltender for the Concordia Stingers during the 1982-83 season, Duncan used his talent to skewer his

including the Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen, Winnipeg Free Press and the Edmonton Journal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to have fun with it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hockey is a game of fun, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entertainment. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to have fun

with the players. Even players I like a lot, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still making fun of.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even met a couple of the players heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lampooned. The one he remembers best is hockey legend Gordie Howe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I showed him a picture and it was in the rough stages. He laughed at the idea,â&#x20AC;? said Duncan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every bit as classy off the ice as on it. It was fun to meet him and have his reaction be like that to a picture.â&#x20AC;? Living in Ottawa, he cheers for the Senators, as well as players heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fan of from other teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cheer more for players now. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big Crosby fan,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like watching the players that are fun to watch. Ovechkin is always fun to watch.â&#x20AC;? He Shootsâ&#x20AC;Ś He Skewers 2! 10 Minutes for Crosshatching is available at a number of local book stores just in time for the holidays, including Chapters in Kanata, South Keys, Rideau, and Pinecrest, Coles at Bayshore Shopping Centre, and Indigo in Barrhaven.

Clean home is cheaper to run With spring around the corner, homeowners are sweeping, dusting and vacuuming everywhere to get a clean start on the season. Did you know that most household dirt goes undetected and over the years it can build up and make it more expensive to heat and cool your home? By following these three simple tips, offered by the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI), you can clean up, save money, and breathe easy: â&#x20AC;˘ Filter your air: We filter our swimming pools

There are two types of filters that can help you remove stray particles from your indoor atmosphere: mechanical devices that draw air through a filter and electronic devices that use different types of fields to purify the air. Whatever option you choose, proper installation and maintenance is critical so consult a licensed contractor. â&#x20AC;˘ Get rid of dust: Dust gets everywhere.
