EMC news - Due to a lack of interest from private landowners, the National Capital Commission has killed a plan to expand the Mer Bleue area of the Greenbelt. Lori Thornton, acting chief of planning for the NCC, said private landowners weren’t interested in another level of government on their property. “That doesn’t mean they aren’t aware of the environment on those lands and being stewards,” she said. The National Capital Commission will be hanging onto Greenbelt land near the Queensway Carleton Hospital. said project manager Sylvie Lalonde 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 to Black Rapids Creek, will be designated a core natural area and have its existing footprint protected from development. “We listened to the concerns of residents who really wanted to see that space kept,” Lalonde said, adding there is land to the south of Baseline Road available if the hospital chooses to expand in the future. Other changes to the westend portion of the Greenbelt include an amendment to the Nepean National Equestrian Park to allow for the proposal submitted by the Wesley Clover Foundation. The Greenbelt Research Farm, a federallyowned facility on Woodroffe Avenue across from the Sportsplex, will keep the same footprint. Lalonde said it was slated for expansion in the 1996 master plan, but with the new focuses on capital recreation, natural environment on agriculture, the NCC is trying to get away from using Greenbelt land for federal buildings.

St. Peter students to perform Footlose Brier Dodge

EMC arts - St. Peter High School students are performing Footloose, which tells the story of high school kids who just want to be allowed to dance.  But for the students at St. Peter, especially those in the first year of the high skills major program in musical theatre, their experience is the exact opposite.  “We perform all the time now,” said Drew Plummer, a Grade 12 student who plays the lead role as Ren MacCormac. “It’s a lot of work , but it’s extremely rewarding. And it’s all for the love of it.”  Footloose features 31 St. Peter students in the extra-curricular musical that tells the story of small town Bomont, its strict rules against dancing and the students who want to change it. 

The musical will be performed Feb. 27 to March 2 at 7 p.m. each evening and director Bernie Leger expects 2,000 people

to come through the auditorium doors at the school over the four nights.  The musical is a dance-focused poprock performance which students, who were selected through a competitive audition that saw less than half of those who auditioned chosen, have been preparing for since Thanksgiving. 

Students from Grade 9 to 12 all act, dance and sing, showing off almost five months of preparation.  For Grade 10 student Morgyn Davies, who is too young to be in the high skills major program, playing her first lead role as Ariel Moore is exciting.  “It was a lot to get used to,” she said. But she enjoys the Footloose-style of music, which is more pop and less classical than most musicals.  Both Plummer and Davies agreed that the musical is very fun and energetic.  “No one is going to leave without a sense of ‘wow, the energy they brought was really uplifting,” Plummer said.  They said they’ve been leaving the school’s dance studio dripping in sweat to prepare for the performance.  See HIGH, page 4

High school students design apps, test with youngsters Pilot project that ran at Garneau in 2011 expands

The John Young students provided art work for the apps, which were scanned onto the computers and manipulated using Adobe Photoshop. “They needed to make company logos and they needed to make the idea for the game,” said Nowell. The children also visited A.Y. Jackson several times last fall and winter to see how the app programs were coming along. “I think they really enjoyed seeing their artwork turn up on the screen,” Nowell said. This year is Carla Kirby’s first time teaching the apps development program. “It surprised me how well it worked and how students were excited,” she said. “It was energizing just to be in the room watching those kids talk.” The Grade 10 Introduction to Computer Science teacher received training last spring on how to instruct the course. Starting last fall, Kirby divided her class into 10 groups to work on apps for eight Playbooks donated by RIM. “They know nothing at the beginning,” she said. “They go from nothing to making pretty amazing apps.” The students learned the meaning of deadlines, with many of them working to perfect their programs during lunch hours and at home. “You have to make deadlines, because if you don’t do it those Grade 3s don’t have a product,” Kirby said. “My kids would be letting down the Grade 3s if they’re not able to make the deadlines, which gave my kids a lot more motiviation.” Working with an industry mentor and creating a product under tight deadlines gives the students a connec-

Helen Nowell’s grade 3 and 4 class at John Young acted as the customers for the apps, giving the groups of Grade 10 students direction on what kind of apps they would like. “The kids told us what they wanted,” said Thao-Tran. “We just made that happen. Thao-Tran Le-Phuong’s group created an app called !Explosions!, a game where children are asked to match capital cities with provinces. “They wanted an explosions game,” she said. “There’s bombs and there’s provinces and you just kind of blow them up. “When we showed them our app, they said, ‘Oh, that’s cool.’”

Matt Hodgson, a software developer at BlackBerry, formerly known as RIM, who has worked on Twitter applications for the older BlackBerry phones as well as an app for the new BlackBerry 10, visited the class an hour-and-a-half each week last fall, helping the students pick up the basics of programming language and troubleshooting any coding problems. “I was blown away by the work they did,” said Hodgson. “I wasn’t expecting that much; this was their first programming class.” Cameron said he wants to one day get a job in the high-tech industry. “I hope to follow in Matt’s footsteps, try to get a good job, something

This is the first year app programming has been offered at A.Y. Jackson, a course that falls under the umbrella program, a program designed to entice high school students into considering a career in technology, was launched in 2007 by the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation, which has since changed its name to Invest Ottawa, and a cluster of hightech companies that hoped to boost the number of youth entering computer science programs at universities and colleges. The pilot project ran from 2007-11 in four Ottawa high schools: Earl of March Secondary School, Garneau Catholic high school, Mother Theresa High School and All Saints Catholic High School. Last September, the program expanded to 19 high schools, which included A.Y. Jackson, with plans to grow to 25 over the next two years. “The really critical thing that came out of the pilot project was the recipe for success, which is having the high school students working with the elementary students, but also having the industry mentor visit the classroom,” said Maria Smirnoff, a spokeswoman for the Ottawa Network for Education, a division of Invest Ottawa.

EMC news – The high-tech industry’s push to find more software and app programmers has entered the classrooms of A.Y. Jackson Secondary School. A Grade 10 computer science class at the Glen Cairn high school recently celebrated the creation of 10 apps for the BlackBerry Playbook, teaching tools that were tested out on an enthusiastic group of grade 3 and 4 students at John Young Elementary School. “It was an amazing feeling. The kids play with it and actually enjoy it,” said Melissa Manseau, who together with her fellow students Cameron Wissing and Justin Kim created The Fishygame, an app that teaches basic math schools. Brendan Marentette and Awalie Hassan produced the Animal Race Xtreme Edition, a game that teaches children basic math skills. “We talked to the kids and the kids were interested in making a race game with animals,” Marentette said. The computer science students started the course with no background in programming, first learning the basics of Turing and Flash, a graphic user interface and then moving on to Action Script 3, a coding program that allowed students to generate game mechanics.

tion to the “real world,” she said. Kirby, who teaches grade 10, 11 and 12 computer science courses, said students will learn C++ programming in Grade 11 and develop more advanced apps in Grade 12.

EMC news - The Earl Armstrong Arena and three OrlĂŠans parks will get accessibility upgrades including a new elevator at the arena and new playstructures in the parks. The announcement was made on Feb. 21 at the Earl Armstrong Arena. Queenswood Ridge Park at 346 Kennedy Ln. East, Marcel BĂŠriault Park at 1691 Sunview Dr. and Louis Perreault Park at 6250 BeausĂŠjour Dr. are scheduled to have new, accessible playstructures replace existing structures by the end of the year. Specific improvements will vary by site, but will include changing play surfaces, improving accessibility of walkways and washrooms

and an upgraded splashpad at Queenswood Ridge. Mayor Jim Watson said the city will work with the community to figure out exactly which playstructures will end up in the parks. The largest project is the Earl Armstrong Arena, which will see upgraded washrooms, upgraded doors and with power door openers, and work on the elevator and stairs. The Earl Armstrong Arena is home to the Gloucester Senior Adults Centre on the top level. The Earl Armstrong projects have a longer deadline, with an estimated competition date of next February. “Some (of the improvements) seem very minor to us, but from a senior’s perspective they’re very important,�

said Coun. Tim Tierney, who said that when the elevator is out of service and the seniors centre is having an event, it makes it very difficult for the attendees to access the centre. The cost of the four projects totals near $1.1 million, split between the federal government and the city. The federal government committed the funds through FedDev Ontario’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund. Watson said the approved projects were ones that were both shovel-ready and in areas that had the highest need for accessible features. “The east end pushed hard because changes are needed,� Watson said. “Not just for the disabled, but for the aging population.�

25 schools now part of tech program Continued from page 2

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Drew Plummer acts out a scene as he plays Ren, the lead character in Footloose.

High skills major gets students performing

Continued from page 1

“Rehearsals are high-energy, it’s exhausting,” Plummer said. “It’s challenging everyone on a physical level.”  Tuesday through Friday and a handful of Saturdays in the winter are dedicated to the rehearsals.  Leger said Footloose was a good choice because it is heavier on dance than last year’s Les Misérables performance, giving students more diversity, and it also fits in with the school’s Catholic education.  “Footloose, it’s more about understanding part of being a Christian is dancing and rejoicing,” he said.  Leger will have a closer role inside the show this year, directing the rock-band style orchestra made up of music teachers from around the Ottawa-area and professional musicians from Orléans that the actors highlighted as one of their favourite parts of the show.  Tickets for the musical are $10 and can be purchased at the school or reserved in advance by calling the office at 613-837-9377.


More than half of the students in the musical are in the school’s inaugural year of the specialist high skills major program in arts and culture. At St. Peter, Leger has shaped the program into a musical theatre program, with students immersed in acting, dancing and singing.  Students spend five hours a day with him, with most taking part in the extracurricular musical, after-school dance classes and special workshops to develop their skills, both in and out of school.  It’s clear Leger puts in many more hours than required as a teacher, and the students put in many more than the required to get their high school credits. But they’re all there for the same reason: a shared passion of musical theatre and the arts.  “We’re all here for that one reason,” Leger said. “And if you don’t want to be here, don’t.”  The students put on Into the Woods already as a high skills major class, and most also in the musical and the show choir. It means a student like

Plummer can have 12 singing solos, 20 choreographies and hundreds of lines to learn in a year between the three performances.  Leger said intense and diverse training is the best way to prepare students who want to pursue theatre arts at the post-secondary level. As a part of the program, students are also working within the arts with co-op placements through the city.  They also work with guest dance teachers on Friday evenings at Capital City Dance in a special prep class for postsecondary auditions.  “Most kids would kill for that opportunity,” Leger said. “This program promotes that it takes a village to raise a child.”  Next year, the school hopes to attract more students to the program, including some who may not have normally attended St. Peter High School. The program will also be expanding to include a production group, which will focus more on set design, costume and production than the performers.  “We’re going to make a lot more noise about the program,” Leger said. 

The first year of the pilotproject, high school students visited high-tech industries, such as IBM-Canada and Cisco Systems Inc., to experience the work environment. Over the next four years, the project evolved and became more hands on for the students, said Smirnoff. Starting in the project’s second year, students worked on building small XO laptops, which were later shipped to schools in Third World countries. In 2010, Patrick Coxall, a Grade 10 computer science teacher at Mother Theresa High School in Barrhaven, suggested schools teach youth how to program apps for mobile devices such as Playbooks and iPads. “The teacher, on his own, created model teaching apps,” said Smirnoff. “We took the model and used it in other schools.” This year, the program received $961,000 in funding from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario to expand the TechU.Me program from four to 25 high schools over the next three years. has four industry partners: IBM-Canada, Adobe, BlackBerry and Macadamian, which provided classroom space, Playbooks, Adobe Creative Suite licensing, and assistance monitoring the students’ development. also offers science summer camps for grades 6 and 8 students in the Ottawa area, teaching them how to build robots with Lego, social media, app development and website design. Enrolment in computer science programs at Canadian universities and colleges has gone up since the program started, said Smirnoff. “But the demand has grown,” she said. “A lot of the partners we’re working with in the industry are saying, ‘We are desperate for talent.’” Smirnoff said aims to remove negative stereotypes associated with a job in high tech and encouraging high school students to consider a career in software programming and app development. The program is already seeing some success stories, said Smirnoff, such as that of Samira El-Rayyes, a Katimavik woman completing her second year in a bachelor of applied

science at the University of Ottawa, where she is majoring in software engineering. El-Rayyes, 19, never considered a career in computer programming until she entered the TechU.Me program at Earl of March Secondary School. In 2008, El-Rayyes was finishing Grade 9 and was certain she wanted to study chemistry in university, when she came across a Grade 10 computer science course. “It was really new to me,” said El-Rayyes. “I didn’t know anything about computer science or java or anything like that.” The Earl of March student learned how to make games to put on XO laptops. “I was going into chemistry before that, but I switched,” said El Rayyes. “I really, really liked having a final product in the end.” This summer, El-Rayyes will be starting a paid internship with Nakima Systems, a company in Kanata. It helped that when she contacted the company to apply for the internship her industry mentor who taught her introductory programming at Earl of March answered the phone. “There’s a huge job market,” said El-Rayyes.

Core natural areas like Mer Bleue make up 40 per cent of Greenbelt Continued from page 1

The study of a master plan for the 20,000-hectare expanse of land started in 2008, then moved to a series of consultations that looked at land uses, potential additions and conservation. If the plan is approved by the commission’s board, the plan would be implemented between 2014 and 2067. “We wanted to make the Greenbelt more relevant,” Lalonde said. “We wanted to give it a clearer identity and roles.” Lalonde said core natural areas like Shirley’s Bay, Pine Grove and Mer Bleue make up 40 per cent of the Greenbelt. Agricultural lands make up another 29 per cent. “The natural environment is a priority,” Lalonde said, adding they are also looking at sustainable agriculture practices and links to bring together the different sectors of the Greenbelt. Due to a lack of interest from private landowners, planned additions to Mer Bleue Shirleys Bay, Carlsbad Springs and the airport will likely not happen, Lalonde said. But Green’s Creek will remain a core natural area.

Lori Thornton, acting chief of planning for the NCC said just because private landowners didn’t want to surrender their land to the Greenbelt, it doesn’t mean they aren’t watching over the wildlife. SOUTH

The NCC is also designating 1,300 hectares of land at the airport as buildable in exchanges for a lease from the Ottawa Macdonald Airport Authority on 169 hectares of

land south of the airport to link to the Leitrim Wetlands. The lease would be renewable until 2057. “It was hard to come up with an agreement,” Thornton said. “Our objectives were different. The airport authority’s focus is making it an economic

centre, while we are working to protect the environment.” Thornton said that while the land is no longer Greenbelt, it’s unlikely the airport authority will heavily develop the area. “We will focus on the wetlands and entrance features around the Airport Parkway,” she said. One resident said she would like to see the NCC replace the total amount of land lost through the deal. ORLEANS

New highway lanes will get just as clogged as today’s Re “Hwy. planning sparks vibration, noise worries,” Feb. 14. To the editor, It seems to me that people should be worried about more than just vibration and noise. They should be concerned about whether or not the proposed new road capacity will solve current and future traffic problems in Ottawa’s east end. The Toronto experience suggests that the opposite will occur. People will move to Rockland and other communities east of Ottawa because they can get bigger homes and lots, and enjoy country living cheaper than in Ottawa when lured by the prospect of an easy commute.

A little over 40 years ago, Highway 401 at Toronto was just four lanes and was an almost impossible road to drive on. Today it is 16 to 18 lanes and people from Oshawa to Hamilton use it to commute to work in Toronto. Add in the Queen Elizabeth Way, Highway 400 and and a number of other “express” highways and you have a road system costing billions of dollars that is still congested. We are considering the same thing here. We propose spending billions of dollars to build and maintain a road system that can, at best, provide a temporary solution to the current road congestion. Since the relief is likely

only to be temporary and maintaining current infrastructure is problematic, perhaps we should consider not building extra road capacity. We should look at a different way of moving people between their homes and the city. Extending commuter rail to the east should be less intrusive to surrounding communities and take some of the existing traffic off roads. It may reduce road usage so that additional road building is not required. If we are going to spend billions of dollars we should at least do something that might work. Robert John Patten Orléans

“We got a sense that people just didn’t want another level of government on their land,” Thornton said. Lalonde said studying the best natural linkages to the core natural areas will be ongoing. “We will study an existing quarry near the RCMP headquarters in the east end for possible rehabilitation,” Lalonde said. “It would provide a good link but we don’t know yet if it’s a possibility.” Lalonde also said the Cleroux Farm near the Blackburn Bypass would be protected to provide space for sustainable architecture.

Convent Glen/Orléans Wood Community Association makes it official Brier Dodge

EMC news – The 16,000 person Convent Glen/Orléans Wood area is finally going to have a community association again. After the first general meeting on Feb. 20, it was made official, with the nine person board elected and bylaws adopted. They tried to resurrected the organization in Sept. 2011, but there wasn’t strong interest and the resident spearheading the effort moved out of the community.

“Enthusiam like this is contagious.” JEAN LAPAGE

The community association had been dormant since 1987 prior to this, but five months ago a 12-person planning committee started working to spread the word about the effort and put together a board of directors and bylaws. The committee consulted with eight other community groups, including the Cardinal Creek Community Association, to figure out how to best shape the group. They also consulted with a lawyer to get advice on the bylaws. The nine spots on the board of directors were acclaimed, with each

person giving a short speech to the crowd. “I want to see it up and running, but I want to see it continue,” said Andre Brisebois, who was acclaimed as secretary and was born and raised in Convent Glen. “I’m really excited to get working.” Coun. Bob Monette said that the community associations help him by giving input on what the communities priorities are. Monette paid for the printing and distribution of flyers for the meeting, and the website hosting was donated. The next step for the community association is to incorporate the association so it can begin to fundraise. Following the elections, the approximately 60 people in attendance had a discussion on community issues to give the board an idea of what is important. There were larger scale issues raised, like dealing with ash borer infestation and a proactive review of development opportunities but also recreation and business suggestions. There was discussion about the beautification of St. Joseph Boulevard and protecting existing businesses in the Convent Glen Shopping Centre area. The association also discussed development of fun and social activities like a community garage sale, and building more community meeting places. Board members were set to meet at the start of March to figure out the priority issues for the community association.


Jean Lapage, a member of the 12-person planning committee to shape the Convent Glen/Orléans Wood Community Association, speaks at the first general meeting on Feb. 20. They are encouraging all residents of the area to visit in order to sign up for the mailing list and stay updated on the association’s development.

The elected board of directors are: • Ian Gadbois - president • Ronalee Carey – vice-president • Andre Brisebois - secretary • David Jean-Laniel - treasurer

• Jean-Francois Bernard - director of communications • Andre Pinard - director • Claude Goldberger - director • Claude Gagne - director • Genevieve Trottier - director

Voters deserve chance to weigh in on Wynne


remier Kathleen Wynne came to town last week, offering Ottawans their first chance to take the measure of Ontario’s new leader. That first impression may be important, as the province may very well have an election on its hands this spring, something that should be embraced, albeit grudgingly, by the electorate. Why embraced? It comes down to the fact Wynne is looking to take Ontario in

a fundamentally different direction from the one we were following under Dalton McGuinty, despite the claims made by Tim Hudak and the Progressive Conservatives to the contrary. That fact alone means voters need the opportunity to approve a new mandate. McGuinty, while he focused on deficit reduction to a certain extent following his 2011 election victory, spent much time looking to implement and expand programs

such as full-day kindergarten. He will also be remembered as the premier who introduced the feed-in tariff program, harmonized the provincial sales tax and gave a 30 per cent rebate to postsecondary students. He was a premier focused on programs and ways the province could help out its citizens. Wynne, based on the speech from the throne delivered on Feb. 19, is looking to focus the province’s efforts on “fiscal responsibil-

ity, economic growth and increased employment.� In practice, this doesn’t need to be a drastic departure from what came before: FIT was designed to boost the economy, helping students can lead to more jobs and freezing teachers salaries is one way of taking fiscal responsibility. But the premier undoubtedly brings her own ideas to her new office and those ideas deserve to be vetted by voters, who should have the

chance to compare Wynne’s plan with those being offered by both the PCs and the New Democratic Party. We’ll have a much better idea of what the Liberals are all about under Wynne in the coming weeks when the budget is presented at Queen’s Park. It should provide a detailed account of how her government plans to reach its new goals. Andrea Horwath’s NDP has pledged to support the minority Liberals on the speech from the throne, so

Wynne will survive to table the budget. It’s better that we head to the polls sooner than later, as the province is facing a number of challenges that really can’t wait to be addressed: the decline of manufacturing and the transition of the wider economy, deteriorating infrastructure, rising health care costs, all under the shadow of a massive deficit and ballooning debt. It would be much better for voters to choose from among the latest visions for Ontario’s future, rather than be stuck with a new path chosen by Liberal party faithful.


Prime downtown property CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


hose were wonderful scandals coming out of the Senate, with people allegedly claiming expenses they didn’t deserve because they didn’t live where they said they did, and so on. For a while, there was the faint hope that the thing would finally be abolished, but for various reasons too constitutional to mention, that is very unlikely to happen. Too bad, as it would free up a beautiful piece of real estate in the heart of downtown. Still, it is pleasant, although maybe not too realistic, to consider alternate uses for the Senate chamber, once the Senators have made their deliberate move to the exit. Many years ago I proposed in print that the Senate chamber would make an excellent basketball court. The dimensions are about right, there is parking nearby, plenty of security and the visitors’ gallery has lots of good seats. You might ask, why basketball, when hockey is our national sport? That’s a good question. The difficulty is that the dimensions of a hockey rink are too large for the space available. Further, the taxpayer might balk at installing ice-making machinery in Centre Block. Finally, where would they put the Zamboni? For these reasons, basketball made more sense. However, the proposal was somehow not seized upon by public officials. Also there was a complete lack of public excitement and eventually, Scotiabank Place was built. Too bad, because it would have made a nice basketball court and years of embarrassing scandal could have been avoided. So we move on. What other uses could be made of the space now occupied by the Senate?

Well, what about the National Portrait Gallery? You’ll remember that it was once intended to move into the old United States embassy building across from Parliament Hill, then the government changed and the museum faded from sight. We could use a good portrait gallery. The Senate would have lots of space for it, because remember there is more to the Senate than just the chamber. Once the Senate is abolished, all those senators’ offices will be vacant, along with the Senate committee rooms and the place where the senators store their overcoats and shuffleboard equipment. Acres and acres of portraits could go in there. Some of them could even be of senators. The ones who live in Ottawa should not be hard to find to take their pictures. Even some ones who don’t officially live in Ottawa might, unaccountably, be close by. For the generations yet unborn, we would want a permanent photographic record of those who graced the institution and explaination of what they did. Some might oppose putting the Portrait Gallery in the Senate on the grounds that our need for historical portraiture will be covered in the conversion of the Museum of Civilization to the Canadian Museum of History. So other possible uses need to be explored. The suggestion that the Senate be turned into a downtown casino will not be dignified with a reply. However, there is nothing to stop the Senate from becoming what most of Canada is becoming – a condominium. Some of those offices suites could make nice apartments, once they are thoroughly cleaned to get rid of the smell of pork. The Senate chamber could be made into a party room, instead of a political party room. The idea certainly has merit, since having more people live downtown has long been one of the city’s goals. It could help put more people onto Sparks Street, as the condo owners emerge from Parliament Hill in search of somewhere to party, or at least get a sausage. The big lawn would be an attraction, the view is very nice. All that needs to be done is to get the neighbours in the House of Commons to keep it down.

Do you think Ontario will be going back to the polls this spring?

Now that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been back for about a month, are you watching NHL hockey?

A) Yes. Both Hudak and Horwath are chomping at the bit for an election.


B) Maybe. It all depends on whether Wynne bows to the NDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget demands.

A) Oh yeah â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I watch every minute I can on TV and get tickets for the rink too. B) When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the tube, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make time to watch.


C) I hope not. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need another election â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our politicians need to learn to get along.

C) After what the league and players pulled in the lockout? Forget it.


D) Nope. Wynne will wowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;em with the budget and all will be well come April.

D) Of course not. I hate hockey.

a good nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleep



$BMM5PEBZ 613.221.6247

y husband and I are like police when it comes to maintaining

bedtimes. Our kids are out the door for school at 7:25 a.m. In order to get the rest they need, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lights out at 7:30 every night. The baby tends to be in bed by 6 p.m. Some people think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m crazy. How can you possibly get the kids to go to sleep that early? In my opinion, sleeping is the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; responsibilities. My job is to exercise them, feed them, read with them and yell lights out in my serious mom voice when the clock strikes half-past seven. As a recent feature in the Globe and Mail highlighted, there is much evidence to suggest sleep is imperative to good health. Despite this, reports Erin Anderssen, a combination of urbanization, technological interruptions and the glorification of busy seem to have relegated a good nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleep to the sidelines. And while many of us make the connection between nutritious food, exercise and good health, sleep

Capital Muse doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often find its way into the same conversation. Anderssen cites a number of studies that link lack of sleep to everything from obesity to depression to attention deficit disorder. And of course, the negative effects of sleep deprivation have also been well documented elsewhere. But if one is in the habit of getting only fragmented and irregular sleep, how can you make a change? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a health expert, but the preservation of sleep has made me a keen observer of the things that tend to help or hinder slumber. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that light blocks the production of melatonin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the sleep drug â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so technology has a huge impact both on getting kids to sleep and keeping them there.

kids have zero screen time, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re far from the norm. Statistics suggest that up to half of children in the United States have TV sets in their bedrooms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nevermind those that are playing with smartphones, portable video game consoles and tablets in their beds. Fresh air and exercise are key elements to good sleep. We like the kids to run around for at least an hour in the late afternoon. Too much indoor time and they have a lot more trouble settling. Finally, I find the kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall asleep unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been at least two hours since their evening meal. This last â&#x20AC;&#x153;ruleâ&#x20AC;? is probably the most difficult for working families to implement. Admittedly, we eat supper at 5:30 p.m. daily â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the goal. If we miss the mark, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guaranteed to be a regular party at bedtime, with sleep the last thing on their minds. If I watch the clock â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which I frequently do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I note they nod off precisely at that two hour mark. There are many in my social and family circles that consider me a fanatic when it comes to good sleep. But the fact is, getting the kids to bed at the same time each day is not only good for their health, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for mine too. If I can count on them bedding down routinely, I can have â&#x20AC;&#x153;grown-up timeâ&#x20AC;? every night. That means more time for reading books, talking to my husband, catching up with friends or catching up on work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although admittedly, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like working on a computer in the evening â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it has a negative effect on my sleep.

Orléans documentary gets happy ending Brier Dodge


Devon Nicholson undergoes regular blood work as a part of his treatment for hepatitis C. He was the subject of the film This is Hannibal, which now has a different ending. Moskal said. “He ended up speaking for about 20 minutes, and it was so moving I completely re-did the documentary.” The new version will debut on March 3 at 6 p.m. at the Mayfair Theatre on Bank Street near Sunnyside Avenue. This is the “100 per cent fiR0011891969 0207

EMC news - When wrestler Devon Nicholson and filmmaker Max Moskal wrapped up filming for This is Hannibal, there wasn’t a very happy ending to the story. Nicholson was wrestling professionally when he contracted hepatitis C, a lifethreatening disease transmissible by blood. Because of this, he had to put his dreams on hold, unable to wrestle in the World Wrestling Entertainment league. There is currently a court case underway to determine if another wrestler gave Nicholson the disease when he cut him with a razor during a match, which Nicholson alleges. The facts have not yet been decided in court. But since the initial shock of his diagnosis, he’s rediscovered amateur wrestling, winning a silver medal at the Olympic Trails for Greco-Roman wrestling and beginning a new experimental treatment for his hepatitis c. “The first one kind of ended on a sad note,” Nicholson said of This Is Hannibal. “I don’t want people to give up on me, because I’ve never given up on anything. But I’m known as the guy that lost his WWE contract, and I want to be known for my athletics and the positive things I’ve done, like bring awareness.” So Moskal and Nicholson, both from Orléans, sat down to do a follow-up, an interview that spiraled into a full blown second part of the This Is Hannibal documentary. “I wanted him to say a couple words about what’s happened since (we last filmed),”

nal version,” Moskal said. “You can’t force an ending, it just has to happen,” he said. “Now it’s complete, and it gives people hope.” The first half of the documentary was shot in October 2011 and the second update was just shot this month. LIFE AFTER

When Nicholson wasn’t allowed to professionally wrestle anymore – he couldn’t be licensed because of his hepatitis C – he decided to pursue amateur wrestling, something he had excelled at previously. The former Cairine Wilson Secondary School wrestler trained his way to a silver medal at the Olympic trials for the 2012 Games in GrecoRoman wrestling. Currently undergoing an experimental treatment that he hopes will cure him of hepatitis C, he plans to use the

next three years to train and qualify for the 2016 Games – the last year wrestling will be an Olympic sport. “I think if I dedicate myself to Greco Roman wrestling, I thin I could have a chance,” Nicholson said. “I’ll still be in my prime for the next Olympics.” He’s been undergoing an experimental treatment after travelling to the Mayo Clinic in the United States for testing and consultations with specialists. If he can test negative for hepatitis C, he can participate in MMA, mixed martial arts, and try and be liscensed to wrestle professionally again – going through the start of the 36-week treatment has been a nightmare. The process has a laundry list of negative side effects, and doesn’t allow him to do the thing he loves most, train. It includes increased doses of

the two drugs usually used to treat hepatitis C, and a dose of a third experimental drug. It can cause insomnia, weight loss, mental issues and intense itching, Nicholson said. On his first round, he made it to week 19, and is currently on week 19 of a second round, trying to get through 36 weeks of the treatment. “I would rather be punched in the face 20 times by a UFC champion than ever experience anything like that itching again,” he said. But he has been told that the treatment has an 86 per cent chance of curing him hopes as soon as September tests come back negative for hepatitis c. Despite still being in the midst of the nine-month treatment, he’s remained hopeful and is setting new goals for the next few years, not ready to give up his athletic career yet.

This is Hannibal’s March 6 showing will be the first time that this new part of Nicholson’s life will be shown on the big screen. With extra behind-thescenes footage following the documentary, the total show time will be 90 minutes. Because of the topic of the movie, it is not recommended for children. The movie shows wrestling shot at Cairine Wilson and various parts of Orléans, so Nicholson and Moskal are both hoping to see familiar faces out at the Mayfair screening of the movie. “Nothing’s going to stop me this time (from finishing the treatment),” Nicholson said. “Last time I wasn’t really public that I was on treatment. This time everyone knows and I’ve been trying to spread awareness.”

Funding available for dump opposition groups Laura Mueller

EMC news - The city is ready to hand out $50,000 to groups who want to oppose a landfill and recycling centre in Carlsbad Springs. Last year, city council approved grants for groups that want to review the environment assessment study for the proposed Capital Resource and Recovery Centre. The money will allow citizen groups to hire professionals to assist them in reviewing the study. Interested groups can fill out an application with information about their organization, how much money they need, specific details about how the money would be spent and a petition with the names and signatures of 50 Ottawa residents who support the group’s plans. The main group that has been opposing the project in Ottawa is called Dump This Dump 2. Its president, Sue Langlois, told the EMC in an email that the group would definitely apply for the funding. But the funding “isn’t going to go very far,” considering what the group needs, she wrote. “We’re looking at funds for an environmental planner (to research and prove that there is no need for another landfill




Residents have been vocally opposed to the dumps proposed in Russell and Carlsbad Springs. Taggart recently announced it prefers the Carlsbad Springs site, and the city will provide opposition groups with funding to fight the development. in Ottawa, so this way it’s not just us saying this),” Langlois wrote. “We’re also looking to get an environmental lawyer on board. We have a hydrogeologist currently working with us but we may also need

some of this funding to help with some additional research at the technical level as well.” The city is making the funding available now that Taggart Miller has announced it prefers the Boundary Road

site in Carlsbad Springs for its landfill and recycling centre. The company had originally looked at a site outside Ottawa’s limits in Russell Township, but expanded its search after residents there strongly

opposed the idea. The Capital Resource and Recovery Centre would dispose of waste produced by the construction, commercial and institutional sectors. A statement from Hubert

Bourque, project manager for Taggart Miller, said in a statement that the Carlsbad site south of Highway 417 is best suited the company’s needs. “The site has outstanding transportation links, is underlain by a deep clay deposit that provides very good natural containment for the landfill and other facilities, and is beside an existing industrial park,” he stated. There will be two open houses as part of the environmental assessment study to determine whether Taggart Miller gets approval for the site. One will be on Feb. 25 from 4 to 9 p.m. at Carlsbad Community Centre, 6020 Eighth Line Rd., and on Feb. 27 from 4 to 9 p.m. at the Russell Arena at 1084 Concession St., Russell. If the environmental studies anre in order and the company gets the province’s OK, the city would be asked to move forward on zoning and official plan amendments, which would take at least another 18 months. The company is a partnership between local construction giant Taggart Group and a larger Canadian company, Miller Waste, which runs recycling and waste facilities. Information about the facility can be found at With files from Brier Dodge

Mushroom foccacia makes a great snack EMC lifestyle - Foccacia is an Italian flat bread like pizza, but without the sauce and the dough is thicker. It makes great snacks or serves as an accompaniment to soups or salads. Preparation time: 15 minutes Rising time: 45 minutes Cooking time: 25 minutes Ingredients

• 500 g (1 lb) pizza dough or frozen bread dough, thawed • 45 ml (3 tbsp) olive oil, divided • 340 g (3/4 lb) fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced - you can use a mixture of white, crimini, portabella, shiitake and oyster mushrooms • 250 ml (1 cup) thinly sliced red or sweet onion • 7 ml (1 1/2 tsp) dried oregano or Italian mixed herbs • 1 clove garlic, minced • 8 black olives, pitted and sliced (optional)

• Coarsely ground black pepper to taste • 15 ml (1 tbsp) grated Parmesan cheese Preparation

Lightly grease a baking sheet and place dough on it. With floured hands, press out the dough into a 27 by 17-centimetre (11-by-7 inch) oval. Brush with 10 ml (2 tsp) of the oil and let rise in a warm place for 45- 60 minutes. (To create a warm place for dough to rise, turn oven on to 100 C (200 F) for one minute, then turn it off and place the dough inside the warm oven.) Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in large skillet. Sauté the mushrooms and onions for four minutes or until moisture has evaporated. Add the oregano and garlic, cook for one additional minute. Let cool slightly. With thumb or end of wooden spoon make dimpled

surface on the foccacia and top with the mushroom mixture, pressing lightly into dough. Top with olives if you’re using them, as well as the black pepper and Parmesan. Bake at 200 C (400 F) for 20 to 25 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned and crisp. Cool slightly on wire rack. Cut in wedges or slices to serve. Makes 12 pieces Tips: Prepare your own dough using half whole wheat flour to make it more nutritious. Kalamata or Nicoise olives cured in oil or brine are more flavourful than canned olives. Variations: Crumble goat cheese on top of baked foccacia and return to warm to melt. Pass herb or spiced flavoured oil to drizzle on as desired.

Please do not feed deer The Ministry of Natural Resources reminds people that it is not necessary to feed deer this winter. REASONS NOT TO FEED DEER


Over 100 action-packed camps across Ottawa


• Using the wrong feed can result in digestive problems. People may inadvertently do more harm than good through improper feeding practices. • Feeding may encourage more deer in an area than the habitat can support. This can result in poor reproduction, smaller fawns, and higher winter mortality rates. • Deer-vehicle collisions may occur as deer cross roads to and from feeders.

• Deer that come to feeders may lose their natural fear of humans and cause conflicts at other times of the year. • A concentration of deer around artificial feeders can tempt natural predators of deer such as wolves to change their natural habits and come closer to populated areas. • Concentrating deer in an area increases the risk of disease transmission between animals. Although Chronic Wasting Disease has not been found in Ontario in wild animals, there are concerns that encouraging concentrations of deer increases the risk and speed of disease transmission.


• Deer are designed to store fat, reduce their metabolism and successfully process that fat in the winter while feeding on natural foods according to their daily needs. If deer become dependent on artificial feed their metabolic rate increases and they require more food to survive. • When artificial feeding stops, deer can die from the resulting stress. In areas where natural food is plentiful, supplemental feeding can do more harm than good.

Spring colours help take chill off winter


lthough Father kept telling Mother there was a lot of winter left, she refused to believe him. She was sure she saw a robin. Father said it was a blackbird. I was never sure if Mother hated the winter because we were locked in for weeks, only venturing as far as church and Briscoe’s General Store, with trips into Renfrew – only if it was necessary – or because she remembered milder weather this time of year in her beloved New York. But by the time February started to wane, Mother’s patience with the snow, the bitterly cold nights huddled together in the drafty kitchen to keep warm and the frostcovered windows all took their toll on Mother’s usually happy mood. Even though the days were getting longer, the evenings stretched out before her and I could tell she ached for spring and warm nights, when she could open the windows and feel the cool country air coming in. One Friday evening she announced that even if the snow came down in buckets, she was going into Renfrew in the morning and yes, I could go with her. The old Model T had long since been

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories up on blocks in the drive shed, so Queenie would be hitched to the cutter for the 20 kilometre trip into town. Mother’s peddling eggs, butter and chickens waned during the winter, but that day, under piles of blankets, she was prepared to visit her warm-weather customers so that she could have what was called “egg money” back then, because there were things she needed. She had written out a list and we dressed like mummies, with hot bricks at our feet. We set out, just Mother and me, for the long cold trip into Renfrew. Queenie’s breath seemed to freeze in the air and the cutter bit deep into the snow along Northcote Side Road, but the fur rug, wrapped tight to our chins, kept us warm. Mother was in much better spirits than she had been all week, for which I was grateful. We headed right for Walker’s Store after Mother got rid of the chickens, butter and eggs, and her little

change purse bulged with coins from her sales. She seemed to know exactly what she was looking for and we headed to the back of the store, pausing for a few seconds on the big iron grate in the middle of the store where heat from the coal furnace puffed up warm air. Here was where the bolts of materials were stored, on long shelves, like books in a library. Mother said she was there to look at the Dan River cottons. The sales clerk pulled the first pile down off the shelf and Mother asked if she wouldn’t mind bringing down the pile next to it. I knew exactly what she was looking for. This pile had several bolts of Dan River plaids in glorious mauve and pink colours, the colours of spring. Mother lifted one bolt off the pile and put it to her nose. She inhaled as if she was smelling a bouquet of roses. “It’s 19 cents a yard this week,” the sales clerk said,

and I knew she was wondering if Mother could spare such a portly sum. She could indeed. Hadn’t we just sold a cutter full of chickens, butter and eggs? We left the store with four pieces of Dan River cotton all in the palest of colours, and even though they had been put into a Walker’s Store paper bag, I could smell the sweetness of the new material as I carried the parcel back to the cutter. After a stop at the drug store,

would become house dresses, and blouses for Audrey and me, and would provide many an hour of work for Mother, who would do her magic on the old treadle Singer sewing machine. Before it was bedtime, we could hear the wind picking up outside and the back door shuddered with the storm’s onset. Father put a log as long as a broom handle into the stove and Audrey, without being asked, rolled up two small braided rugs and

We left the store with four pieces of Dan River cotton all in the palest of colours, and even though they had been put into a Walker’s Store paper bag, I could smell the sweetness of the new material as I carried the parcel back to the cutter. we headed back to the farm and I sat huddled under the fur rug with the parcel of material clutched tight to my chest. After supper, all of us sat around the big pine table, with the exception of Father who was in his usual spot in front of the Findlay Oval, and Mother took out the pieces of Dan River cotton and spread them out before her. They

put them at the bottoms of the doors leading outside and into the summer kitchen. The kitchen was as warm as we could make it. So Father was right. The back of winter had not been broken -- there was more to come. As the storm raged outside, Mother let out a deep sigh and rubbed her hands over the new pieces of Dan River cotton.

The majority of the thefts from cars are from vehicles that have been left unlocked and items taken range from electronics to change left in a console. Tessier recommends locking the car first of all, but also using or purchasing a centre console to store valuables like GPS devices to keep them out of sight, or removing them

When cars are left parked unlocked in a driveway, they often have electronic garage openers easily accessible, which can allow thieves easy access to the home. She recommended that residents call the police at 613-230-6211 if they see a suspicious vehicle or person in their neighbourhood. Call 911 for an actual crime in progress.

Yoga instructor reaches calendar sales goals Michelle Nash

EMC news - If the sales of one charity calendar can raise $10,000 for multiple sclerosis, why not aim for $20,000? That’s what Ottawa yoga instructor Natalie Van Tassel decided to do: stretch her resources a little further to launch a new charity calendar campaign for 2014. It was from the moment Van Tassel, who is also a nurse, found out her 23 year-old son had multiple sclerosis that she made a vow to work every day to raise funds and awareness for disease. Her first effort produced the 2013 Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis calendar for sale kast November, showcasing yogis from across the city in action. The sales went really well and Van Tassel managed to cover her costs while raising $10,000 for Multiple Sclerosis of Canada’s Ottawa chapter. Now she said it is time to raise the bar and raise $20,000 this year, funds she intends to split between the MS Society of Canada and to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation to help

with MS research. “Because we are making it bigger this year, now I need time to build the other aspects of what I am planning,” Van Tassel said. “On the website, I will be promoting the calendar, but for me it is also about raising awareness for MS. If people were aware of the impact of the disease, I think there would be more support.” Van Tassel’s son, Oliver, had just graduated from university when his first multiple sclerosis attack happened. At first, Van Tassel said she feared her son could be suffering from MS, but had hoped she was wrong. Later, however, he was diagnosed with the disease. Van Tassel said she always though MS affected people in their 40s, not younger people. What Van Tassel quickly learned is that it affects people as young as 14. The mother of two admits the first few weeks after Oliver’s diagnosis were extremely hard on her emotionally, but practicing yoga and working on the calendar helped her heal. Van Tassel only had four months to get the 2013 cal-


Natalie Van Tassel has made it her mission in life to help find a cure for multiple sclerosis. Van Tassel, a yoga instructor, worked on her 2013 calendar Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis, which raised $10,000 for the MS Society of Canada’s Ottawa Chapter. This year Van Tassel aims to surpass her goal and raise $20,000 for MS Society and MS research. endar complete before it was to go on sale in time for the holidays. When it came time to decide whether she wanted to create a 2014 calendar, she admits being unsure. “There were a few times when I thought ‘Should I do this again?’, but really there was never any doubt to do this again.”

just a nurse and a mother who wanted to make sure my son was okay,” Van Tassel said. “Because of that I needed to raise money for MS and if a nurse and mother can raise this much money, imagine what more of us could do? We need to all do something more and spread the word.” To help make the 2014 cal-

On Feb. 24 Van Tassel was honoured for her fundraising efforts by the Multiple Sclerosis of Canada’s Ottawa chapter. She says the award is a perfect way to help raise awareness about her fundraising efforts and the disease. “I am happy, but what this award means to me is I am

endar a reality, the yogi has enlisted some help from friends, family and acquaintances. Van Tassel said this year the fundraising will go beyond the calendar. With a committee in place, plans are underway to design an interactive website where people can donate, purchase a calendar and learn more about MS. The important thing she pointed out is that all the money will stay local, for local families and individuals living with MS. Van Tassel said she has been connecting with doctors who will participate in video blog entries to inform people about the disease as well as provide tips to help those who have it. Yoga will continue to remain a strong focus which Van Tassel said can help MS-diagnosed people cope with the disease. “Yoga is all about meditation and breathing; it slows down your nervous system and allows you to be mindful of the present moment. It helps keep them mobile, it offers them strength,” she said.

Kiwanis Club of Ottawa raise funds for CHEO EMC news - The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa, in partnership with Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Convenience Stores, is proud to announce a donation of $15,000 to the Jessica Carr Endowment Fund for Rett Syndrome at CHEO). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Carr family has worked tirelessly to raise money and awareness for this cause and it is great to see (the Kiwanis Club and Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Convenience Stores) rally with them to build the fund that bears Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name,â&#x20AC;? said CHEO Foundation president and CEO Kevin Keohane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is this type of commitment and investment that is so critical to providing hope for children and families affected by this disorder.â&#x20AC;? Rett syndrome is a nervous

system disorder that leads to developmental reversals such as the loss of speech and hand use. It is almost exclusive to females, and is sometimes misdiagnosed as autism or cerebral palsy. Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, Rick and Rhonda, established the fund at CHEO in 2005 to support medical research, education and treatment for Rett syndrome in the division of neurology. The money was raised through the Kiwanis TV bingo program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy to see the hard efforts of volunteers going to support such a worthwhile cause,â&#x20AC;? said Howard Whittaker of the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School held the Annual Jazz Night dinner and silent auction on Feb. 14.


Laurier jazzes it up EMC news - The Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School cafeteria was turned into a jazz club for the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jazz bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third Annual Jazz Night dinner and silent auction on Feb. 14. The fundraiser for the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music department brought in $1,200 for new percussion equipment. A group of dedicated Grade 12 students, led by Rebecca


Modler and assisted by Ayden Allen, Trevor Desjardins, and Thomas Naciuk, were determined to ensure that the event would continue. With the support of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principal, Ruggles Pritchard, planning started when the students came back in January. That gave those involved just six weeks from start to ďŹ nish.

The students arranged practices, booked rentals, planned the menu and chose the music for the night. Volunteers from the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior band signed up to be the wait help and parents looked after the preparation of the food and the running of the silent auction. Besides the jazz band performing, there were also solo vocal performances by Sarah

and Amanda Collie, Rachelle Fisher, Troy Arsenian, Jaime Westmore, Dayna Lawless, and Ayden Allen. The evening was also the perfect time for the music department to say thank you and good bye to mathematics and music department head David Morrison, who has accepted a position with Speed Skating Canada in Richmond, B.C.

Avid Ottawa volunteer is looking for Lauzon asks court for permission to support to help abroad Kennedy and other volunteers to Kibera, Africa’s most populous slum located in Nairobi, Kenya. It will give them the chance to work with internationally renowned artist and peace activist Solo7. They will cycle through Hell’s Gate National Park, also in Kenya, where the volunteers will learn about the realities

Michelle Nash

EMC news - Darnell Kennedy is an avid volunteer, having spent more than 8,000 hours helping at-risk youth in Ottawa. Now he is attempting to raise $6,500 so he can travel to Africa in May to learn about the challenges facing people living there, helping him to become even better at helping others. Kennedy comes by helping people honestly enough: he grew up in a low-income neighbourhood and said his life turned around at a young age when he had a chance to attend a free summer camp. After six years as a camper and five years as a volunteer camp counsellor, he now wants to spread his volunteering wings abroad. The trip to Africa is through Operation Groundswell, an organization Kennedy said is founded on ethical travel volunteering. It designs trips to expose participants to the dayto-day realities of each region visited. Kennedy has never traveled before, but said he thought this trip would help him better understand how other countries and regions struggle with and attempt to overcome poverty. When he returns home, Kennedy wants to put what he has learned to use in his own backyard. “I am really hoping to discover a whole new part of me and with the organization, I am really hoping to learn how we can help ourselves here with a whole new perspective,” he said. It was Kennedy’s time at the Christie Lake Kids summer camp where the young Uni-

“I am really hoping to learn how we can help ourselves here with a whole new perspective.” DARNELL KENNEDY


Heatherington resident Darnell Kennedy seeks to raise enough money to volunteer in Africa this spring. Kennedy, who has spent the past five years volunteering at Christie Lake Kids says he wants to travel to the country to get a better understanding of how to help those in need. versity of Ottawa student said he learned what it meant to be given a chance. “Summer camps costs an arm and a leg to go to, but Christie Lake Kids summer camp is free,” he said. “It was the first time I got on the bus I knew I wanted to become more than just a camper. I had never been a way from home before and was sad and scared,

but they (the counsellors) were so welcoming, they were like a family. It was a warm safe environment.” Now he said he wants to spread that welcoming, family feeling. “I don’t know what to expect, I am hoping to bring that same warm, welcoming feeling to Africa.” The six-week trip will take

of the genocide in Rwanda. They’ll also visit the white-water rapids at the source of the Nile in Uganda. The projects Kennedy and his fellow volunteers will participate in will depend on the requests from local community organizations, but some past projects include constructing a bridge, building latrines for a technical school, working at a resource center and running an intercultural women’s political group. Kennedy has received a $650 grant from Operation Groundswell and he has personally raised $800, but the remaining $5,050 needs to be raised by April 1. To help his efforts, Kennedy will be hosting a comedy night at Absolute Comedy on March 19. Tickets are $20 per person. The comedians for the evening are Jason Harper and Dave Merheje.

demolish school

Laura Mueller

EMC news - The owner of a derelict former school in Lowertown has turned to the courts in a bid to tear it down. Groupe Claude Lauzon filed an application to Ontario Superior Court on Feb. 20 asking for permission to tear down the building at 287 Cumberland St., which has remained in disrepair for decades. The application states the city has known since 2005 that the building has “significant structural concerns” and did nothing. Groupe Claude Lauzon wants to tear the school down and put up condos, but the city refused the company’s demolition application in 2006 because Lauzon did not provide plans for what it planned to build on the site instead, which is a requirement of the heritage district policies that apply to the neighbourhood. On Feb. 1, an engineering report commissioned by Lauzon revealed the building was at imminent risk of collapse. That set off the latest chapter in the troubled relationship between Groupe Claude Lauzon and the city. The city ordered barricades be put up to keep pedestrians and traffic away from the building in case it fell down. That led to the court application, which states “demolition is now a pressing and immediate concern and demolition should now be undertaken as soon as possible.” In the court application, Lauzon took issue with whether the city’s building inspector could order an engineer hired

by Lauzon to hand over documents related to the condition of the building. The school was unsafe for inspectors to enter, and therefore the city’s building inspectors can’t make any orders, the application states. That’s not the case, according to city officials, and inspectors were able to enter the building before the court application was even filed, said RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury, who was not impressed by the company taking the issue to the court. He called the court case an “intimidation tactic.” “They’re playing games,” Fleury said. “The premise is the issue is that someone didn’t take care of their property,” and the city has no intention of rewarding that type of behaviour by granting Lauzon what it wants, he said – a demolition permit with no commitment to rebuild something appropriate for the heritage district. Calls of Groupe Claude Lauzon’s lawyer were not returned. Fleury and Mayor Jim Watson’s office have been working on changes to prevent this type of demolition by neglect. City staff is drafting a proposal that would have tighter wording, allowing the city to enforce property standards above the very minimum. Staff is looking to places like Hamilton, Kingston and Toronto for direction particularly regarding upkeep of vacant heritage buildings, which make up half the approximately 100 vacant properties in Ottawa. A proposal will come forward in the coming weeks or months, Fleury said.

Portobello South enjoys Family Fun Day EMC news - An enthusiastic crowd of over 500 people gathered in Portobello Park for the Portobello South Community Development Association’s inaugural Winter Family Fun Day to enjoy outdoor activities. “We are just thrilled with the turnout at our first winter event and hope to build on the success next year,” said association president Pamela Moss. “The weather co-operated, we had a beautiful sunny day, and you could just see from all the smiles that people were having a great time.” Kids and adults played hockey and snow games, piled onto horse-drawn sleighs, skated and warmed up with some hot chocolate and cookies. A heated tent provided a cozy gathering spot and station for kids to make bird feeders and while local fiddler Chantale Gaudet-Rice entertained the community with some lively French-Canadian music. All activities were free, courtesy of funding from the City of Ottawa and volunteer assistance from the Portobello South association and the community. Formed in 2007, the Portobello South Community Development Association represents 20,000 residents along the Portobello Boulevard in the catchment area between Innes Road to the north and Brian Coburn Road to the south, Trim Road to the east and Tenth Line Road to the west.

Families head off on a sleigh ride.

Some of the local volunteers hsow how they feel about Family Fun Day in Portobello Park.

Pet Adoptions Alvin & Simon D#A153328 & D#A153331

Meet brothers, Alvin and Simon! These twoyear-old male agouti Degus are just two of the many small animals available for adoption at the Ottawa Humane Society. They have been at the shelter since February 14, when they were surrendered by their owner. They currently both have a shy and timid disposition at the moment, and they need an owner who is willing to put in the extra time needed to help them blossom to their full potential. They are bonded, and would do best if they are kept together! These gems would rather not live in a home with cats, and they need a large terrarium with a wheel that is made of solid metal. Alvin and Simon are heavy chewers who are very curious in nature and need lots of safe items to keep them busy, entertained and maintain their teeth.

To learn more about Alvin and Simon, please contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or come visit our new location, 245 West Hunt Club Road.

Did you know? Degus are native to the western foothills of the Andes in South America. Did you know? Degus have good vision and are sensitive to green and ultraviolet light. Behavioral experiments have shown that degus are able to discriminate ultraviolet light from the wavelengths visible to humans; it is likely that this ultraviolet sensitivity has a social function, since both their stomach fur and their urine are highly UV reflective. Degus are strictly herbivorous, feeding on grasses and browsing the leaves of shrubs, and seeds. They are intolerant of dietary sugar. Degus are highly susceptible to developing diabetes when fed regularly on a diet containing sugar. Captive degus need plenty of space to exhibit a full range of normal behaviours. They do best in a metal cage with multiple levels made for rats and secured double latches. It is important to line the levels with grass mats or a soft fabric so that the degus do not get bumble feet. It is important never to try to catch a degu by the tail because it will fall off easily and is painful to the creature. If this occurs it will not grow back. Degus often ‘groom’ their human owners, by a gentle nibbling action, and readily bond with any person spending time with them. Degus will bathe themselves if given a bowl of chinchilla dust weekly.

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly! To learn more about adopting an animal from the Ottawa Humane Society please contact us: Website: Email: Telephone: (613) 725-3166 x258

“RURURU!” My name is Bailey. I’m 10 years old and I’m an adorable shitzu mixed with a cockapoo. I love to suckle on soft toys, wrestle, lick my mom’s big nose, bounce in the snow, and spin around on my bum on the carpet! (my mom gets mad at me for doing that...) Over the past 2 years I’ve been through some ups and downs. I was already diagnosed with mitral valve disease at the age of 6, then I developed kidney stones and had to get them surgically removed. Boy! The recovery period was worse than being neutured! There’s some special food I have to eat now so I don’t develop them again - so far so good! I’ve also developed diabetes about 2 years ago. I get an insulin injection right after breakfast and another right after dinner; they’re not that fun, but I take them like a good boy and I get a handful of kibbles after each one (because I can’t have treats anymore). Unfortunately, due to my diabetes, I’ve rapidly developed cataracts and I can’t see so well, but my family is really positive and they help me cope with finding my way around. The plan is to eventually have another surgery to get some of my sight back, but until then I’m just going to have to “ruff” it. Regardless, I’m always happy and I love life! Look at me mommy, daddy, Jessi, and Mikey, I’m in the newspaper!

Degus are about the size of a pet rat with a long furry tail, large yes, and mouse-like ears. They make great pets because although they don’t like to be handled, they enjoy human companionship and vocalize with excited chittering or gentle coos to keep you entertained for hours. Degus are highly social animals that are happiest when sharing their habitat with another degu. If possible, keep a pair of the same sex. General Care: • Degus need a spacious cage with a solid bottom • The cage needs shavings, a hiding box, food bowls, a water bottle • Degus eat pellets, hay, and like to gnaw on objects • A large exercise wheel with a solid surface is perfect for degus In the wild Degus live in burrows, and by digging communally, they are able to construct larger and more elaborate burrows than they could on their own. Degus digging together coordinate their activities, forming digging chains. They spend a large amount of time on the surface, foraging for food. Degus have a wide array of communication techniques. They have an elaborate vocal repertoire comprising up to 15 unique sounds. Did you know? Degus live from five to ten years, and are prone to diabetes. Never feed a degu fruit or other foods containing sugar, honey, or molasses.
