News - A local energy startup received a boost from the province’s Innovation Demonstration Fund on Dec. 18. Solantro Semiconductor Corporation, based in Nepean, received $4 million for the production of chipset that will make solar panels and other small power generators more efficient, thereby adding more power to the grid. Unlike chips that process information, the chips process power and turn electrical grids into smart networks. Bob Chiarelli, the provincial energy minister and the MPP for Ottawa West-Nepean, said the renewable energy sector has improved the economy and created job growth

in the province over the last six years. “Ontario’s green energy strategy has attracted private sector investment and has helped to create over 31,000 jobs in the province,” he said, adding Solantro’s flagship product will make big changes in the industry. Chiarelli said the province has more than 3,500 megawatts of renewable energy in the grid and over the course of the next 10 or 11 months there will be 3,700 more megawatts connected. “Ontario is a Canadian leader when it comes to solar energy. There are 900 megawatts of solar capacity online, which is enough electricity 100,000 homes annually,” he said. CEO and founder Antoine Paquin said the chipsets wring more power out of

solar energy. “We are in pretty good shape with the grid in Ontario,” he said. “But it could revolutionize things for the 400 million living without electricity in India.” Chiarelli announced the funding. He said the province hopes to draw half its energy from renewable sources by 2025. “Solantro is an excellent candidate for this funding because they are making advancements all across the spectrum in the energy sector, whether it’s in storage, smart grid or solar panels,” he said. The Innovation Demonstration Fund is administered by the Ministry of Economic Development and Innovation. The fund is designed to help Ontario companies with emerging technology – preferably in green energy – to compete in the commercial market. The funding to Solantro will allow for large scale production of the chipsets and will create 20 new jobs in Ottawa.

News - The Ottawa public school board approved $1.5 million for facility renewal projects at two Barrhaven schools on Dec. 17. John McCrae Secondary School will get $1 million for a breezeway that will add more classroom space to help ease overcrowding. Cedarview Middle School will get $500,000 to fix the roof. Donna Blackburn, the trustee for the area, said the funds were sorely needed. “When I was on the parent council for Cedarview we used to talk about getting up there (on the roof) with a bucket of paint,” she said. Cedarview started receiving Grade four students during the 2012 school year as a result of an accommodationreview done in 2011.

Blackburn was also recently successful in moving a new school in the Barrhaven suburb of Half Moon Bay to the top of the board’s capital priorities list. Blackburn said many Barrhaven schools are “bursting at the seams.� “I have worked closely with my school communities, senior staff and fellow trustees to develop an action plan related to facilities renewal in Barrhaven schools,� she said. She said roof repairs at

Cedarview will improve the integrity of the building and provide students and staff with a better learning environment. Blackburn called the breezeway addition to John McCrae a cost-effective solution to adding classroom space. “Barrhaven is such a great community to work and live in. We have a traditions of coming together in good and bad times and we are renowned for creating solutions,� she said. “These projects will further enhance quality public education in Barrhaven.

The city got a chance to bid adieu to Ottawa Community Housing’s outgoing chief executive officer JoAnne Poirier on Dec. 17. “During her tenure she has skilfully managed our $2 billion housing portfolio, set us on the path for long term financial sustainability and improved the quality of life for our 32,000 residents,� Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson, chairwoman of the Ottawa Community Housing Corporation. Poirier, whose last day on the job was Dec. 19, said she will miss the community, staff and city council members she has worked alongside for the past six years. “I felt OCH was in good shape and that we have very engaged tenants and a good board,� Poirier said. “I am going to miss the people. I have made a lot of friends and what we have done collectively has made a difference.� Poirier has turned her attention to a new position at

the Victorian Order of Nurses in the new year. She said she does wish to work closely with the organization in the future. “I will be looking at strengthening the ties between community housing and home health care,� Poirier said. It has been a busy last two months for Poirier -- in addition to the 10 units announced in December, the organization also made 27 units in the Carson Grove neighbourhood available in November. “I find it very rewarding,� Poirier said about the addition to OCH’s ownership. Aside from being a part of helping add affordable housing to the city’s stock, a new smoke-free policy has been established for OCH buildings. The organization provides housing to 32,000 residents in the city and the new policy will see new tenants sign a non-smoking policy on OCH property. and ask current tenants to voluntarily comply.

Study could look at making a ‘friendlier’ Merivale Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - A study of commercial building densities on Merivale Road could trigger its transformation into a main street, if city councillors get their way. The city is already undertaking a housekeeping study to look at the proper amount of homes and jobs that Merivale Road should accommodate. In addition to that, KnoxdaleMerivale Coun. Keith Egli was successful in getting his fellow city councillors’ support on a motion to include input about street-renewal opportunities as part of that density study on Nov. 26. Egli said nearby residents are getting antsy about what might crop up on the only remaining vacant portion of Merivale, referred to as the “triangle.” The plot at the corner of Clyde Avenue sits empty after a 2010 fire forced the demolition of the old CJOH TV station building. “That’s how it started – basically the community saying ‘We have concerns about Merivale, we have concerns about the triangle and what might happen there.’” Discussing what could move onto the property led to residents talking about what they’d like Merivale

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

A study of commercial and residential density in the Merivale Road area could lead to a broader discussion about making the street a friendlier environment for pedestrians and cyclists, says KnoxdaleMerivale Coun. Keith Egli. Road to look like in the future, Egli said. That led to discussions about the kind of street the road could become. The city considering a five-year update of its transportation blueprint was also timely, because it got residents to think about how the design of the street affects what it’s like to live, travel or operate a

business there. “More feedback came in through this process saying ‘We want to talk more about cycling, we want to talk more about more of a main street kind of approach to it,’” Egli said. All those concerns came together at the right time to push the city to look at zoning for Merivale Road in a more comprehensive way, the

councillor said. Ostensibly, the study is simply a housekeeping matter to ensure the zoning along Merivale actually allows development to accommodate the density target for the street – 120 residents and jobs per hectare, said Carol Ruddy, the city planner in charge of the study. “(We want to) ensure that you’ve got the floor space needed to reach those targets,” she said. If the zoning wouldn’t allow for enough density, the study might lead to rezoning properties along Merivale Road, Ruddy said. Similar studies will be undertaken for many of the city’s commercial main streets in 2014, she added. “I’m anticipating tweaks,” to the zoning, Ruddy said – not big changes. But when the results of that study – no matter how minor – go to the planning committee and possibly the transportation committee, it will open an opportunity for councillors to use their clout to push for additional attention on Merivale Road, said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli. Merivale is “not a friendly environment,” Ruddy said. Although it’s a simple technical study, some interesting things could end up coming out of it, she added. Although it’s maligned as a con-

gested, esthetically unappealing caroriented retail strip, Egli said Merivale serves an important function as a centre for commerce. Chiarelli likened the issue to a Yogi Berra quote: “Nobody goes there anymore – it’s too crowded.” “Over and above that, there are communities along Merivale,” said Egli. “For them, in a lot of ways, that is their main street. That is where they do their shopping and that is where they go out to a restaurant. It’s well used.” Adding more residents along Merivale will boost the customer base for area businesses without adding to traffic congestion, Chiarelli said. But residents say it could stand to be a more comfortable and welcoming area to walk in, Egli said. “Merivale is a challenge,” he said. When rare commercial redevelopment projects come up, like the Claridge condos on Merivale at Basil Macdonald Way, the city works with the developer to find ways to make the building enhance the streetscape. “Animating the street” but requiring businesses on the first floor of the tower helps create energy and activity along the street’s edge, Egli said. “Something so that when you’re walking by, your eye is attracted and it draws you in,” he said. “We’re working on those things.” The density study will take three to six months to complete, Ruddy said. Any proposed zoning changes would need the approval of the planning committee and city council.

Christmas spirit kept alive in Santa stories Tyler Hooper Nepean-Barrhaven News

Arts - Two local artists have made their popular children’s Christmas stories available online, in hopes of keeping the Christmas spirit alive. Bernard Muzeen and Stephen Sammon are behind the 13-story series Santa and the Spirit of Christmas, which was first published in 2006. It was during Muzeen’s

battle with prostate cancer that he was encouraged by friends and family to write a collection of tales about his experiences playing Santa over the last 15 years. Muzeen, an Ottawa resident, wrote all the stories, while Sammon, a freelance artist based in Bells Corners, did the illustrations. Before his retirement, Muzeen was the executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa. Sammon

was also a member of the Boys and Girls Club during the so-called “Bernie” years. When Muzeen interviewed candidates to illustrate his stories he recognized Sammon. Sammon impressed Muzeen with his artistic capabilities and not long after their colloboration began. The original publication of the stories was not without its problems. Muzeen wrote the stories

while recovering from cancer and Sammon got a large piece of glass in his eye which led to a series of surgeries over the span of two years. “The last five books were basically done with one eye,” Sammon said. Because the original publisher has gone out of business and the stories are almost sold out, their supply has run low. This sparked the idea to

da to let them know they can download a free PC Kindle reader and any of the kids or group counselors, they can go in over the holidays and get individal books,” Sammon said. According to Muzeen and Sammon, popular stories include “Kissed by an Angel,” “Happy Chanukah,” and “By Moon Glow.” Muzeen said he hopes the books will help spread Christmas spirit amongst family and friends, adding, “The Christmas spirit lives in your heart and in your mind.”

put their stories online which are available at Amazon.ca. “I knew we had to jump into the future a bit and get them online and try and get that going as a revenue stream,” Sammon said, adding that they hope putting the stories online will help “spread the (Christmas) spirit.” The stories can be purchased for less than $10 online, and Muzeen and Sammon have made the stories available for free to members of the Boys and Girls Club. “(We) sent it to every Boys and Girls Club across Cana-

Veterans still seeking closure, fairness on benefits Lawsuit airs grievances over the New Veterans Charter

lump sum payment (approximately $100,000) went to paying off debt heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d acquired from his alcohol dependency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Handing over somebody, with an untreated mental illness, their lifetime compensation is insane,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. Berry also said that workers compensation offers more support for disabled persons than the New Veterans Charter, a sentiment echoed by Bradley White, dominion secretary of Dominion Command of the Royal Canadian Legion which is based in Kanata. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There needs to be some adjustments for inďŹ&#x201A;ation in there and they also need to make sure that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comparable to what the courts are giving an average worker who is hurt on a work site,â&#x20AC;? White said. White wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment directly on the lawsuit, but did suggest certain elements of the New Veterans Charter need to be reviewed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest question is the post65 earnings loss beneďŹ t, and how do we look after veterans who have been underneath the charter and then at 65, all of sudden, the beneďŹ ts start to stop. How do we make sure their future is secure at post-age 65,â&#x20AC;? White said. Although White said elements of the charter should be reviewed, he also acknowledged that the lump sum payment is not the only beneďŹ t offered under the new charter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand

Tyler Hooper Nepean-Barrhaven News

News - Several Canadian veterans and members of the federal government still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nd common ground over the New Veterans Charter and its beneďŹ ts. The Equitas Society, a veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; advocacy group, appeared before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Veteran Affairs in Ottawa on Dec. 12 to discuss their grievances over the New Veterans Charter. The group has ďŹ led a lawsuit claiming the charter violates the constitutional rights of soldiers and fails to ďŹ nancially compensate disabled veterans. Kevin Berry, who is a member of Equitas and a plaintiff in the ongoing lawsuit, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough with a committee,â&#x20AC;? adding that this was the ďŹ rst time the government has heard their claims in person. The New Veterans Charter, which was implemented in 2006, includes programs, services and beneďŹ ts to help veterans returning from Afghanistan. The charter made several beneďŹ t changes including replacing veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; disability pension with one a time lump sum payment. One of the biggest complaints by veterans is the maximum lump sum payment beneďŹ t which gives out a onetime payment up to a maximum of $298,587 for pain and suffering. Berry said the committee members kept trying to compare the New Veterans Charter to the former Pension Act, which Berry doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pension Act can only be compared to section three of the New Veterans Charter, which is the payment for pain and suffering, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lump sum,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. When asked what was the next step in the lawsuit Berry said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep banging the drum, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrating though.â&#x20AC;? In September, a B.C. Supreme Court Justice ruled the lawsuit could continue after lawyers representing the attorney general of Canada tried to have the case thrown out, arguing

what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about because they equate the lump sum payment as being the only payment the individuals get,â&#x20AC;? White said, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a portion of the beneďŹ t that comes out of the New Veterans Charter, (but) itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only beneďŹ t.â&#x20AC;? Other beneďŹ ts under the new charter include an earnings loss beneďŹ t (75 per cent of pre-release salary), a permanent impairment allowance (a monthly allowance, payable for life, for severe impairment), a supplementary retirement beneďŹ t and Canadian Forces income support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest thing is communication. People need to understand exactly what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about,â&#x20AC;? White concluded. Veteran Affairs was unable to provide an interview but did send the Kourier-Standard a statement by email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The New Veterans Charter (NVC) aims to help veterans make a successful transition to civilian life. The NVC offers both immediate and ongoing ďŹ nancial support while also providing full physical and psychological rehabilitation services, vocational assistance, health care beneďŹ ts and one-on-one case management. Services and beneďŹ ts are available to Canadian Armed Forces veterans when they need them, for as long as they need them,â&#x20AC;? read a portion of the statement.

TYLER HOOPER/METROLAND

Kevin Berry, a veteran of Afghanistan and a plaintiff in the Equitas lawsuit, was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in 2010 after years of struggling with the disorder. Berry has often criticized the New Veterans Charter, suggesting it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do enough to help disabled veterans. it had little chance of success and was not the proper way for veterans to voice their concerns. In 2010 Berry was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after struggling with nightmares, ďŹ&#x201A;ashbacks,

Moms helping moms Kanata woman tackles postpartum depression Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - Natasha Rose was feeling extremely anxious, fatigued and overwhelmed after the birth of her second child. “I ended up having a really bad, what I’d call, a panic attack. I didn’t know what was happening to me,” she said. “It was the most paralyzing and debilitating thing I’ve ever experienced. I didn’t know how I was going to take care of my two children.” Mother to Shea, 3, and Camille, nine months, a visit to the doctor confirmed that Rose was experiencing severe postpartum anxiety, a form of postpartum depression. “I’d never felt depressed before,” said the Kanata woman. But she

wasn’t able to take part in any of her day-to-day activities. She said she was lucky she has a supportive husband, Kurtis, who helped her through. Although hospitals give new moms a package of information, there’s almost nothing mentioned about postpartum depression – nurses only give a verbal warning, Rose said, adding that although public health nurses call one week after the birth, that’s too soon. One of the biggest misconceptions about postpartum depression is that it happens right away, she said, but symptoms can take weeks or months to show. Rose, who works in the developmental and services worker program at Algonquin College, began

researching postpartum depression online, asking questions on social message boards and talking with other mothers. “What I realized in my own personal search is that it’s difficult to find and access resources,” she said. “When you feel that bad it can be difficult to advocate for yourself. “These women helped me, they gave me strength.” As she struggled to find solutions that worked for her, an idea popped into her head. She created a Facebook group – Moms Helping Moms with Postpartum Depression – in August to be an online social community of support where people can ask questions and find resources. She shared her own story in the hope that it could help others. “For me, the major (hurdle) was saying ‘I’m not OK’ and asking for help,” she said. “You think people will think and wonder what’s wrong with you. “I felt like if I became transparent it would help other women.” From there, it just took off, she said. She created a webpage and

hosted a get together with other mothers. She said she wants to create a free “one-stop shop” for mothers with postpartum depression, with links to resources, articles and suggestions about what helped her. “You can go to one place and find most of what you’re looking for,” she said. “From there it became my mission and my goal.” She said she doesn’t give advice, but options. “The response has been overwhelming,” Rose said. “People are coming forward to share their stories.” With a background in education, her goal is to raise awareness about postpartum depression and help erase the stigma attached to the diagnosis. In talking with others, she’s heard more than a few mothers say they were scared to go to the hospital and seek help because they thought their children would be taken away from them. But getting help is the most important thing a mother can do, said Rose. “Find someone you trust so you

can say ‘Look, I don’t feel well.’” There are various levels of postpartum depression (courtesy of postpartum.net), which include: • Postpartum depression: feelings of anger, sadness, irritability, guilt, lack of interest in the baby, changes in eating and sleeping habits, inability to concentrate or thoughts of selfharming or hurting the baby. • Postpartum anxiety: feelings of losing control, extreme worries and fears, panic attacks, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, numbness and tingling. • Postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder: repetitive, upsetting and unwanted thoughts or mental images, feel the need to do things over and over to reduce anxiety. • Postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder: often caused by a traumatic or frightening childbirth, symptoms can include flashbacks of the trauma and feelings of anxiety, the need to avoid things related to the event. • Postpartum psychosis: can include hallucinations, believing things that aren’t true, mistrusting others, periods of confusion and memory loss. This is a severe and dangerous condition and anyone experiencing these symptoms should seek immediate help. “We can’t do everything. We all need a little bit of help sometimes,” said Rose. “My new motto is ‘Just ask.’ I’m not afraid anymore. “It doesn’t last forever. There is hope,” she added. “In the darkness, there is light.” For more information, visit Rose’s webpage momshelpingmoms.ca or search Facebook for Moms Helping Moms with Postpartum Depression.

OPINION

Connected to your community

Another good year

T

he year 2013 has been many things. Here in Ottawa, it has been a year of new beginnings. A stadium is in the works, tunnels are bored beneath the streets, two new sporting institutions are taking shape, and official plans have been ratified to guide our city into the future. It was a year of a terrible tragedy, when the lives of six people were lost during a horrific bus crash near the Fallowfield Transitway station. Dozens were injured. We can only hope that the lessons learned from that tragic moment in time will help us prevent such a thing from ever happening again. It has been a year of controversy. Daniel Alfredsson snuck out of town in the middle of the night. Tall towers have been planned and opposed, heritage has been preserved and destroyed, buses have been diverted, highways constricted by construction. Bridges have been delayed, bridges have been abandoned, and bridges have been mired in mismanagement. It was a bad year for bridges. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a particularly good year for electronic bus passes either. It has been a year of consistency. Winter was cold, summer was steamy and property tax increases were kept to a minimum. Bluesfest still rocked. Our mayor still managed to appear at every pancake

breakfast and barbecue he could. Elsewhere, political uncertainty and scandal were hallmarks of 2013. Ontario witnessed the arrival of Kathleen Wynne as premier. She has been dogged by the legacy of her predecessor, and Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park has teetered on the brink of an election ever since. On Parliament Hill, things havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been much different. The Senate expense scandal has gobbled up great chunks of time in both the red chamber and House of Commons. When it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the trials and tribulations of Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau leading the evening news or topping the front pages, there was always Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rob Ford there to fill the vacuum. Yet through it all, Ottawa has a great deal to be thankful for. Despite federal public service job cuts, the city is still faring better economically than many across the province. The light rail system currently under construction will revolutionize transit and spur development across the city. Ottawa is a wonderfully green city, with parks and open spaces easily accessible to all who live here. It is a vibrant city, with culture to spare for those who wish to seek it out. The past year has been many things, but it has proven once again how fortunate we are to live in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital.

The heartwarming technology of Christmas

T

he technology is lining up pretty well for Christmas this year. Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helpers at the mall will, for a small fee, put your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photo with the big guy on a flash drive for you. So thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that worry taken care of. It needs hardly to be said that online shopping grows every year. People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go out to be among other people, except to get their flash drives from Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helpers. Also, the word has just come in that it is now possible to buy Christmas trees online. Home Depot in the U.S. has put trees on its website. Ikea sells them in Britain and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another big company in Sweden that does it too. Meanwhile, Amazon is working on a delivery drone. This is a great relief to those people who thought they might have to go out of the house this season and interact with other people. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this other advantage, found in a newspaper quote from a happy California online tree shopper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;no needles in the car!â&#x20AC;? Yes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a drag at this time of year to have a car that smells like Christmas trees. It reminds you of, well, Christmas. So things are moving right along. Not that there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t room for improvement. Some

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town children are not being co-operative. They are becoming less and less enthusiastic about having their pictures taken. This may have to do with the fact that every adult they know now has a camera, often disguised as a phone, and the children are constantly forced to pose. And now they have to stand in line in the mall so that their parents can get them and Santa on a flash drive so that they can email photos instead of writing Christmas cards. But you know, progress is inevitable. Some day it will possible to have robots that will look like children and be more co-operative in front of cameras. There still remains the necessity of going outside for certain things, such as the picture of Santa and your robot. But surely, if we can put a man on the moon, we can fix this.

Which leads us, reluctantly, to the following heart-warming Christmas story. The Christmas Drone It had been a difficult day and Bob was wondering whether this might turn out to be the worst Christmas ever. First the children had, for the fourth visit in a row, refused to have their picture taken with Santa. There would be no flash drive this Christmas. Then the outdoor Christmas lights refused to turn on automatically, which meant that Bob had to go outside to flip a switch. Then the WiFi went down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh no!â&#x20AC;? cried Bob. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How will I finish my Christmas shopping?â&#x20AC;? The Christmas cards were all stuck in the community mailbox with care and the Christmas tree he had ordered online was nowhere in sight. When all of a sudden there arose such a clatter on the roof that Bob wondered he would have to get new insulation. But he sprang out of his house to see what was the matter, hoping he could remember the access code to get back in, and lo and behold his eyes beheld a tiny little airplane. He was hoping that the tiny little airplane could talk, otherwise it would be difficult to tell the rest of the story.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where did you come from?â&#x20AC;? he asked the tiny little airplane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m The Christmas Drone,â&#x20AC;? the tiny little airplane said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I come from Amazon to bring presents to all the little children of the world and their lazy parents.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you bring my Christmas tree?â&#x20AC;? Bob asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not my job,â&#x20AC;? the Christmas Drone said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ikea drone should be along any minute.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be the happiest Christmas ever!â&#x20AC;? said Bob, although, to tell the truth, he was getting a bit tired of the clatter on the rooftop.

Annual alcohol-free party to ring in the new year Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - College Ward Coun. Rick Chiarelli’s annual New Year’s Eve party might be turning 21, but there still no drinking allowed. The event started with just a few dozen revellers as an initiative to keep drunk drivers off the road. Last year, thousands attended the Emerald City themed gala at Ben Franklin Place. This year’s theme will be pirates and princesses. Chiarelli said no matter which category you’re in, there’s something to fit

everyone’s wish list. The festivities will kick off at 6 p.m. and will feature a talent showcase, jugglers, musicians, magicians, face painting, skating, bouncy castles and the ever popular IKEA furniture assembly contest.

Every year something new emerges as a crowd favourite. COLLEGE COUN. RICK CHIARELLI

Skating will be led by the Nepean Skating Club and the talent showcase will be

led by Nepean’s Les Petit Ballet. Magician John Milks and singer Russell Levia have been at the event every year. The night will close at 10 p.m. with a fireworks display. “We have taken the best experiences of previous years and built on them,” Chiarelli said. “Every year something new emerges as a crowd favourite.” There is no charge for entry to the event and the money from the sale of refreshments goes to Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving and Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Toy drive heats up Firefighter Dave Reid, left, joins Barrhaven Legion president David Sereda and fellow firefighter Mattie Nesrallah during the legion’s first Firemen’s Breakfast on Sunday, Dec. 15. The event welcomed the public to enjoy a special meal and bring a new or gently used toy for the Salvation Army’s toy mountain. The event raised $200 for the Barrhaven food cupboard and collected 200 toy donations. Firefighters at Station 44 off Greenbank will deliver the toys to the toy mountain in time for Christmas.

Nepean-Barrhaven News EMC - Thursday, December 26, 2013

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse the past seven years, with Conservatives at the helm, we’ve seen a steady erosion of salaried positions with benefits, at the same time the cost of living has skyrocketed. From food inflation to a peak in housing costs, no measures have been put in place to give us the resources to feed our own children. Nevermind that the government is bracing for a full-fledged attack on federal public service unions in 2014. It’s a harkening back to the overt class warfare launched by Margaret Thatcher in 1970s Britain. And it’s not going to be pretty. All the while, kids are starving in this country. Lots of them. It’s estimated that between 13 and 15 per cent of children live in poverty, a number that has increased since the late 1990s. The Conference Board of Canada’s annual report card of countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, found Canada ranks 15th out of 17 peer countries for its handling of child poverty. “In 1989, the Canadian House of Commons unanimously resolved to eliminate child poverty by the year 2000,” writes the Conference Board. “And there was

some initial success; the child poverty rate fell from 15.8 per cent in the mid-1980s to 12.8 in the mid-1990s. Since then, however, the rate has increased – to 15.1 per cent in the late 2000s – reversing earlier progress.” This is a shameful statistic, considering, in Moore’s words, “We’ve never been wealthier as a country.” Moore is technically correct to suggest that school breakfast programs and many other poverty-fighting measures fall under the jurisdiction of the provinces. But the fact that the Conservative government is not only complacent, but hostile, about child poverty measures is cause for concern. Kids that live in poverty will have poorer health and education outcomes than those who don’t. They are also more prone to mental illness and behavioural issues. If one in six children in my kids’ classrooms is going to school without breakfast, it is definitely my responsibility to feed them, and at least part of that should be through our tax dollars. Because the government – much as it likes to think of itself as a business – is there to level the playing field and make this a great country for all of us.

Police warn of distraction thefts

ust before Christmas, federal Industry Minister James Moore found himself apologizing for some comments he made about child poverty on a Vancouver radio show. In the interview that triggered controversy, the MP for Port Moody-WestwoodPort Coquitlam was asked a question about a new report that found B.C. has the worst child poverty rates in Canada. Moore answered as follows: “We’ve never been wealthier as a country than we are right now.” “Certainly, we want to make sure that kids go to school full-bellied, but is that always the government’s job to be there to serve people their breakfast? Empowering families with more power and resources so they can feed their own children, I think is a good thing. “The government...is it my job to feed my neighbour’s child? I don’t think so.” In his apology, Moore admitted his comments – which he believed were taken out of context – were insensitive. Unfortunately, the off-thecuff response reveals much about the pass-the-buck mentality around poverty in this country. That they came from a Conservative cabinet minister highlights something that’s represented in much of federal policy these days – outright hostility toward the collective, the working class and the working poor – in other words, the majority of people in this country. The government is far from empowering families. Over

News - Ottawa police are seeking public assistance in identifying suspects involved in “distraction theft” following a visit at financial institutions. There have been several incidents in the west end, one in October and four in November. Both victims had been at a financial institution in the west end of Ottawa and were targeted once they left the institution. Both victims had observed suspicious persons in the area prior to leaving. The suspects approach the victims after they’ve visited a banking institution or a retail store. The suspects approach the driver once they are inside their vehicle and advise they have a flat tire on the rear pas-

senger side of the vehicle. Signs of push pins or tacks were seen on the ground then the suspect would offer assistance with changing the tire. The suspect would then direct the driver to pick up the pins or tacks. A second accomplice would enter the vehicle from the opposite side and steal the driver’s purse and/or other valuables. Victims provided the suspect’s description as a possibly Asian or native male, about 5-foot-5 tall, 40 years of age, speaking poor English and wearing a baseball cap. If you encounter a similar scenario you should be wary of a possible distraction theft and: • Make note of the suspect’s

physical appearance and clothing description for the police. • If you do not feel safe, remain in your vehicle and call police. • If you don’t have a cellphone, remain in your vehicle until the suspect leaves or exit when it is safe and head to the nearest place of safety and contact the police; • If you need to exit your vehicle, do not leave your purse or valuables unattended and immediately lock your car door. Anyone with information on this type of distraction theft is asked to contact the Ottawa police West District investigations at 613-236-1222, ext. 2666 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.

Nepean-Barrhaven News takes a look back at 2013 From new schools to new builds, Barrhaven and Nepean continue to grow. The NepeanBarrhaven News takes a look at the news of the past year.

Cullen seeks return to politics Vowing he has “unfinished business” at Queen’s Park, former Bay Ward councillor Alex Cullen is hoping to return there as a member of the New Democratic Party. Cullen revealed on Dec. 31 that he intends to stand for the provincial NDP nomination in Ottawa Centre. The 2010 mayoral candidate had a brief stint in provincial politics for another party – the Liberals – in the riding of Ottawa West-Nepean. But he said the dismal state of affairs in the provincial government spurred him to seek a return to political life and he chose the most likely place to succeed. “Ottawa Centre is a strong riding for the NDP,” he said. It’s also a community he knows well, despite spending most of his time in politics at the regional, municipal and provincial levels representing areas to the west of downtown Ottawa.

Secondary school gets cash for expansion

The province gave a green light for the expansion of Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School on Jan. 14. Donna Blackburn, the trustee for Barrhaven, said prior to the official announcement she was excited about the possibility of an expansion of the school. “I think everyone in the community worked really hard to see this project become a reality,” she said. “The process worked.” Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi announced the funding at Mutchmor Public School. Included in the announcement were funds for: • A permanent addition at Mutchmor Public School; • A permanent addition at South March Public School; • A permanent addition at Earl of March Secondary School ; • A new elementary school to be built in northern Kanata. “I’m pleased that the students at the Ottawa Carleton District School Board will benefit from our investments to provide better school

By last October there were 100 more students than the school’s 1,350 theoretical capacity.

Residents talk land use for Barrhaven

Dozens of residents turned out to have their say on future uses for 10 properties in the area of Deerfox Drive and Woodroffe Avenue on Jan. 16. The city and Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder hosted a meeting as part of a zoning study at the Walter Baker Sports Centre. The properties are currently zoned development reserve, which is essentially a blank slate according to Harder. “It’s something we usually apply to greenfields in advance of development,” she said, adding interest from a developer in the past highlighted the need for community consensus on uses for the properties. She said the process differs from a spot See, MINI, page 12

of the province’s electrical system.

Chiarelli set to take on hot seat

Bob Chiarelli said he may have taken over the hot seat as the province’s new energy minister, but his focus will stay on the needs of the residents of Ottawa West-Nepean. He called his new post a political one and said while it won’t be as much fun as handing out cheques for infrastructure projects he is up to the task. While still in Ottawa, Chiarelli has been in several briefings in preparation for a committee on the cancelled gas plants in Oakville and Mississauga. “All the parties agreed to cancel the gas plans, we just didn’t know the cost at the time,” he said. “It’s the job of the opposition to draw blood. The premier has agreed to appear before the committee so we can show the opposition the process and be as transparent as possible.” In the coming weeks, Chiarelli said he wants to meet with the opposition critics of the ministry to try and develop a working relationship. He said he is well suited to the post because the opposition trusts him. Chiarelli served on the board of Ottawa Hydro for six years. He also served on the board of The Independent Electricity System Operator, which he described as the heartbeat

Ottawa residents showed their heart

Residents of Ottawa showed they have heart by turning out at an annual fundraiser in Barrhaven on Feb. 3. February is heart and stroke month in Canada and organizer Sylvia Summers-Martyn thought it would be a great opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the Ottawa Heart Institute with an art sale. One of the Barrhaven legion’s own member’s life was saved because the Fallowfield Road club had a defibrillator, something Summers-Martyn said helped to formulate the idea for the event. The Art for the Heart fundraiser outgrew the legion this year and moved to the Cedarhill Golf and Country Club this year to accommodate the more than 20 artists who exhibited their work and came out in support of the worthy cause. Amie Talbot, a resident of the Kanata neighbourhood of Morgan’s Grant, said she was impressed with the traffic and the space. “There have been people here all day,” she said. “And it’s a beautiful space with a lot of light.”

Grant helps to strengthen communities

A grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation will help to provide programming for single parents, at-risk youth and seniors. The $122,000 grant was presented to the Social Planning Council of Ottawa and Jewish

Nepean to keep soccer pitch, Pinhey Forest thanks to comments on Greenbelt master plan Continued from page 12

Thanks to comments from residents the NCC will be hanging onto Greenbelt land near the Queensway Carleton Hospital. The latest details of the NCC’s vision for the Greenbelt were unveiled at a public meeting at the Nepean Sportsplex on Feb. 19. The Greenbelt master plan – which is set to go before the crown corporation’s board in the spring – will also see Pinhey Forest designated as natural area. Pinhey Forest, which lines the west side of Woodroffe Avenue to Black Rapids Creek, will be designated a core natural area and have its existing footprint protected from development.

Women’s network takes off

Area artist Valerie Hoffman is hoping to provide a space for women to get together to discuss challenges they face in the business world. The Barrhaven mom founded the Women’s Barrhaven Business Network with voice teacher and former colleague Sarah Ripley. “There are kids to deal with and supper to be made,” Hoffman said. “We thought it would be good have a support for women with businesses.”

Spread the Net campaign at college smashes fundraising goal

A grassroots fundraising effort started by 14 students in Algonquin College’s police foundations program has netted $38,000. The college’s Spread the Net campaign – which started on Jan. 7 – with the intent of raising $15,000 to purchase mosquito nets to save lives in Africa. Davide Carlucci, the student chairman of the fundraising campaign, said he was always sure the college would be able to smash the original goal. “One $10 bed net can protect a family of five from malaria for five years,” Carlucci said. “I’m so happy with the work the school community did to get together and raise the money. We got an incredible amount of support from the students and the administration.” The college, including president Kent MacDonald, revealed the fundraising total on March 5.

Lincoln’s MKC Moves from Concept to Production by Brian Turner

Lincoln marked another milestone recently in its journey to compete decisively in the prestige and luxury market with the all-new 2015 MKC SPV (Small Premium Utility Vehicle). The Lincoln design team faced the dual challenge of meeting the ever-changing demands of younger luxury vehicle consumers while further defining the Lincoln design DNA. The MKC Concept, which was revealed to the public at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, introduced a uniquely crafted wraparound lift-gate, a design feature that carried over to the production model. Its side-cut design gives MKC an uninterrupted rear-view to epitomize elegance, while its hands-free feature is another example of Lincoln’s commitment to build customer-friendly vehicles. Those aspirations also carry through to the interior, where the merging of craftsmanship and technology combine to offer a warm, luxurious environment. Featuring an architecturally unique instrument panel that showcases Lincoln’s signature push-button gear shifter, MKC creates an open, welcoming interior. Inviting leathers and available Bridge of Weir leather and real-wood trim accentuate

MKC’s elegance and grace. “We gave attention to every detail to convey a stylish, luxurious vehicle,” said Soo Kang, Lincoln interior design chief. “The structure of the interior allows for openness, and that space contributes to the overall ambience. We want this vehicle to not only meet but often exceed the expectations of the new Lincoln customer.” “We’re confident we’ve created an allnew vehicle that will attract new customers to the brand while meeting the expectations of long-time Lincoln drivers,” said Max Wolff, director, Lincoln Design. “The execution of the new liftgate is a prime example of how a signature premium design element can create a better customer experience.” In the 2015 MKC, Lincoln will introduce a series of customer-focused comfort features they call ‘Lincoln Experiences’. Systems such as ‘Approach Detection’ will allow the MKC to respond to an approaching owner (identified by the key in his or her possession) and illuminate the ground near the doors and in the outer door handle pockets for easier and safer entry. A communication system will allow drivers to interact with the vehicle remotely using the

smart phone-enabled MyLincoln Mobile app. An embedded modem on each vehicle communicates with the app which allows owners to start, lock, unlock and locate the vehicle. Drivers also can use the app to perform a variety of other functions such as place a call for roadside assistance; monitor the vehicle’s fuel level; check the tire pressure and battery status; and program engine start times. .“Lincoln Experiences are about creating a warm, personal driving experience every time a Lincoln owner approaches their vehicle,” said Matt VanDyke, Director, Global Lincoln. “Today’s premium car buyer is more demanding than ever. Our goal is to create vehicles that not only meet those evolving demands, but exceed them and redefine what the luxury car-buying and driving experience should be.” Production of the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC is slated to begin in the second quarter of 2014 at the Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Ky. Vehicles will begin arriving to Lincoln dealerships next summer. Canadian pricing has been announced, starting at $39,940.

One Christmas concert memorable for many reasons

T

MARY COOK Memories tree on Friday night, so all that was left for decoration was the wisps of silver tinsel Miss Crosby brought from home each year, and the coloured paper stars each pupil made. Of course, there was no piano in the school, so that year Miss Crosby had Three-Mile Herman’s parents bring in their crank-up Victrola, (I think it was the only Victrola in the Northcote area) and from someone else she scrounged a record of Silent Night. The record was as big as a meat platter, and since ThreeMile Herman knew how to get the music out of the Victrola, he was to make it work at the appropriate time in the concert. The appropriate time was when the Nativity scene was coming to a close, and just before Santa was to burst through the back door. Marguirite, as usual, was an angel. After she had complained loud and long that she was tired of being a sheep, Miss Crosby had let her wear a handmade silver halo like Velma and me in order to keep the peace among the students. See PARENTS, page 23

he Christmas concerts at Northcote School usually went off without a hitch – Miss Crosby saw to that. For the entire month of December, we had rehearsals every day after school. Never could we miss even a minute of our studies. Oh no, not with Miss Crosby. That meant it was getting dark by the time we walked the five-and-a-half kilometre trek back home. Every last pupil had to take part. It didn’t matter if you had a voice like a crow, you sang in the choir. If you were so shy you couldn’t say your name out loud, you had a part in the Nativity scene anyway. The program for the concert rarely varied. The parents who crowded into the Northcote School to see their children perform could count on a repeat performance of the year before. That is, all except that one year when everything that could go wrong, went wrong. We had rehearsed until we knew our lines backwards and forwards. The tree was up in the corner, and the school room had been scrubbed from top to bottom. Christmas messages were written on the blackboards, the desks had been piled in the cloak room, and chairs had been moved in from the United Church. We pupils were to be at the school early, with our parents arriving in time for the concert. Well, as soon as we got to school, there was trouble brewing. First of all, the mice had eaten all the popcorn balls off the Christmas

• 15 ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil • Six boneless skinless chicken thighs or two boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks • Pinch each salt and pepper • Half small onion, thinly sliced • 2 cloves garlic, minced • 15 ml (1 tbsp) Thai red curry paste • 1 can (400 mL) light coconut milk • 1 lime • 10 ml (2 tsp) fish sauce • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) granulated sugar • 1 Sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1 centimetre (1/2-inch) pieces • 250 ml (1 cup) sliced mushrooms • Chopped fresh coriander

PREPARATION

In a large wide saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and cook until it’s golden all over -- about five minutes. Remove and set aside. Add the onion, garlic and more oil to pan if necessary and cook, stirring frequently, until it’s slightly softened, about three minutes. Add the curry paste and stir until the mixture is fragrant -- about 30 seconds. Add the coconut milk to the

pan. Remove a couple of wide strips of peel from the lime and add to the pan along with 15 ml (1 tbsp) of lime juice. Add the fish sauce and sugar, and bring to a boil. Return the chicken to the pan along with the sweet potato and mushrooms. Stir, cover and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced, about 15 minutes. Stir in another 15 ml (1 tbsp) lime juice. Sprinkle with coriander. Foodland Ontario

Parents crammed into schoolhouse Continued from page 21

My sister Audrey was again the Virgin Mary, which didn’t please Cora one bit. Finally, the parents were crammed into the school, the old stove was belting out the heat, you couldn’t see out the windows for the steam off bodies, and the bad smell of overshoes and gum rubbers hung in the room like a cloud. The first thing that happened to put a damper on the concert was when big Emma grabbed a hold of the make-shift curtain (just a group of flour bag sheets hung on chicken wire to separate the performers from the audience) to stop herself from falling, and the entire stagecurtain came down like a cloud wafting from the sky. Someone got a ladder from the cloak room, and it was hammered back up and the concert was ready to begin. Miss Crosby got us through the singing numbers, and what passed for a pantomime, and the Nativity scene was about to begin. Someone turned down the oil lamps on cue, and Three-Mile Herman got the nod

from Miss Crosby to start cranking the Victrola. Somehow, someone brought the wrong record, and we were listening to a high screechy voice belting out a song from the First World War. Three-Mile Herman never missed a beat, and kept turning the handle on the side of the Victrola and we continued on with the Nativity scene as if that was the music we had rehearsed with all along, even though none of us, except Three-Mile Herman had ever heard the record before. The concert finally came to a close, and after thunderous applause from the parents, the entire school room of 18 pupils, sat on the floor at the front to await Santa Claus, who was supposedly standing out in the cold waiting to be let in. Uncle Alec Thom got up and went to the door, and Santa in all his glory flew in, ringing a set of bells on a piece of rein, exactly like our horse King wore, and just about knocked Uncle Alec for a loop. He careened into the classroom, and immediately sat right on the knee of the first woman in the back row. She let out a war-whoop and with

a mighty shove, pushed him to the floor, where it took three strapping men to right him. It was obvious to everyone that Santa had been into something stronger than green tea. By this time the heat in the crowded little one-room school house was bouncing off the walls. Uncle Alec, my father and a couple other men got Santa into a chair at the back of the room, and within minutes he was sound asleep and snoring loud enough to wake the dead. Miss Crosby ended up handing out the Christmas presents herself, a few of the mothers passed around cookies, and the Christmas concert came to a close for another year. Someone drove Santa home in his own cutter, and the talk around Northcote for weeks on end was about all the excitement at the school that cold winter’s night. My brother Emerson and Cecil said it was the best Christmas concert ever held at the Northcote school. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books? Search for Mary at smashwords.com..

Farmers gather to protest release of GM alfalfa The release of genetically-modified alfalfa could be the last straw for a dwindling bee population, said bee keeper Susan Hamilton. Hamilton, along with four dozen farmers from across Ottawa and the valley came out to protest the potential release of herbicide tolerant alfalfa at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency headquarters in Nepean on April 9. “We have had bees since 1973 and the population is dwindling already,” Hamilton said. “This will eventually kill them off.” Hamilton added that pollinating the alfalfa genetically modified to include the herbicide Roundup could hurt and eventually kill bees. Forage Genetics International has applied Monsanto’s Roundup Ready technology to alfalfa and Canada already approved it for health and environmental release in 2005. Variety registration with the agency is the last step before it can become commercially available. Demonstrators with the National Farmers Union and the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network hoped to halt the process by letting the powers that be know how they and consumers feel. Alfalfa is a high-protein feed for dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs, but because labelling for genetically modified crops is not mandatory in Canada, it’s unlikely consumers will know they are eating altered crops. Lucy Sharratt, a co-ordinator with the action network, said 38 communities across the country organized demonstrations in a four-week period. “Seventeen communities in eastern Ontario were holding demonstrations today,” she said, adding eastern Canada is where the genetically-modified alfalfa would be rolled out first.

Learning partnership results in fitness campaign

A learning partnership has created a class of junior entrepreneurs at Knoxdale Public School. Ben Shepherd’s Grade 5 and 6 students have been working on a project to keep their peers moving. Their business model – called Full Speed Ahead – attempts to market wristbands and water bottles with the slogan “Don’t sit, get fit.” “It really works,” Shepherd said. “Over the weekend every time I would sit down to read I would see the wristband and get motivated to get up and do something.” The project is part of an initiative started by a national charity called The Learning Partnership – an organization that promotes public education. The project is designed to get the students out in the community and learning to apply their learned skills to the real world. Samantha Lin, a student working on the project, said her class got sponsorship money from a Canadian Tire store to purchase the bottles and wrist bands. Any money left over will go to Jumpstart, a charity aimed at making recreational activities available to kids regardless of their parent’s income. “We wanted to do a fitness business because physical exercise isn’t the priority any more,” Lin said.

Paul Slomp, a cattle farmer, who sells grain-fed, organic, non-certified beef to 250 customers in the Ottawa area, protests with his six-month-old son Felix outside the Canadian Food Inspection Agency offices in Nepean on April 9 to halt the release of genetically modified alfalfa.

Meet Comet (ID# A070935), a sweet sevenyear-old male cat who would be the purr-fect addition to the right family this holiday season – he’s named after one of Santa’s reindeer after all! Comet has been at the Ottawa Humane Society since October and is hoping to spend the chilly December nights curled up in his new forever home. He’s a gentle kitty who loves getting pet but also likes his alone time. Comet enjoys hunting bugs and scratching on his scratching post. Comet is a special needs adoption because he has been diagnosed with a heart murmur. Many animals (and humans) with heart murmurs go on to live happy and healthy normal lives! Comet’s condition will warrant discussion with your veterinarian and together you will decide how to manage it best. For more information on Comet and all our adoptable animals, stop by the OHS at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Check out our website at ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of animals available for adoption.

Sushi

Sushi (aka Sushi Roll) is our 4 month old fawn tabby kitten that we rescued from the Ottawa Humane Society. Sushi is your typical kitten; enjoys sleeping all day and gets the “night crazies” while we are trying to sleep. He has become so comfortable with us, our families and our house, that we have started training him to come and sit. Sushi loves playing hide & seek, running through his kitty tunnel and cuddling under the blankets at bedtime. This sport-loving kitten (curling is his favourite) is the purrfect addition to our family and we love him very much. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/Yi]Zg^Zc5bZigdaVcY#XdbViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

Many people start a new year by making a resolution to do better for themselves and others; it’s a chance at a fresh start. As 2013 comes to a close, we have the opportunity to consider how to do better for the animals in our lives by resolving to follow the Five Freedoms. At the OHS, we believe that all animals deserve to be treated properly throughout their lives. We want to make sure that we are treating animals right by meeting their needs to give them the healthiest life possible. We can do

they both worked in Glovertown, N.L. When Blackmore came into town, the group came together and never looked back. The tour that will bring them to Ottawa is a 30-year-anniversary celebration. The group looked to their fans on social media to develop a playlist. “We used those tools to ask people which songs they would like to hear,” Johnson said. Johnson said the group’s fan base is diverse – with some as young as high school age and some in their 90s. “It’s the kind of music that you put on when you’re feeling down and it makes you feel better,” Johnson said, adding the playlist will be a good balance of some of the more serious ballads, mixed with the lighter comedy. Johnson, who started playing accordion for local dances when he was eight, came into comedy largely under the direction of Blackmore. “It’s easy to be funny around him,” Johnson said, while he recounted the creation of the comedic lyrics for O Danny Moo.

It took a while to come up with a formula that worked. “At first we started out with classic rock tribute bands, but that was expensive,” Pat said, adding it only brings in a certain kind of crowd. They even tried Karaoke, but with bus routes that end at midnight, their crowd was limited. After a while, they started to take advantage of the local music scene. “There are so many bands here that want to play,” Pat said. “It was a much better arrangement to have them play for the door (cover charge). Then they draw their own crowd.” The club has already seen the likes

Merivale takes CHEO contest for fifth year

Grade 11 student Jenny Berndt said she never dreamed the design she entered into an annual Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario competition would be selected. “It’s really weird to have my picture everywhere,” said the Merivale High School student. The design, which features a bandaged young boy hugging the iconic CHEO bear, was the fifth to be selected from a Merivale student in the eight years the hospital has been hosting the competition. The design was unveiled at the school on April 18. Everything from clothing to posters and even CHEO’s Bear Wear clothing line will feature Berndt’s graphic. Berndt said her inspiration came from her own experience. “I just thought about what I would want to see if I was in a hospital feeling sick,” she said. “What would make me feel better.”

Beauchamp, who did public opinion research for the federal government, took over the bar with his brother in October 2010.

Planned Woodroffe Avenue changes are coming to Barrhaven to improve safety As you may know, the first steps towards safety improvements along Woodroffe Avenue have started with the application to close Woodroffe Avenue at Prince of Wales Drive. This closure application was planned by the Nepean City Council in 1997, prior to amalgamation. Although I was not on Nepean Council at the time, I trust that Nepean Council members had a progressive vision for the community that we now enjoy. These urbanization improvements will benefit both existing and future residents. As we all know, this area of our community needs proper pedestrian and cycling capacity and until now, has not been able to be developed due to the rural road structure currently along the stretch south of Chapman Mills Drive. The area infrastructure will also be urbanized with features such as streetlights, sidewalks, and a cycling network to be installed along the updated Woodroffe Avenue. The proposed sidewalk will run along the east side of Woodroffe up to Chapman Mills Dr. from Whitewater and on the west side from Cresthaven Dr. to Chapman Mills Dr. I have been advised that once this process is complete, the road will be closed in 2014. I encourage residents to visit my website for more information at: SteveDesroches.ca. Strandherd Bridge Update Work is ongoing on the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge. I would encourage residents to visit my website at SteveDesroches.ca for regular updates and photos of the progress.

During the holiday break treat the kids to Kanata Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting musical production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yo Vikings!â&#x20AC;? by Judith Byron Schachner and directed by Andrew Williams.
