EMC news – Former Gloucester mayor Harry Allen is being honoured by having the St. Joseph Bridge over Greens Creek renamed in his honour. The former mayor and councillor’s name was submitted by Roger M. Piper under the city’s commemorative naming program, and on March 3 the city’s finance committee gave the suggestion the thumb’s up. According to the report requesting the renaming, Allen served as a municipal councillor for Gloucester from 1978 to 1985 before being elected mayor and serving in that position from ’85 to ’91. The request states that Allen was a forward-thinking municipal official who left his mark on the area, especially when it came to planning the old city’s road network in partnership with the National Capital Commission. “Known as a forwardthinking councillor and mayor, Mr. Allen left his mark in areas of transportation, community planning and commercial development, which, to this date, remain of benefit to the current City of Ottawa,” the report says. comments

Only two people registered comments regarding the proposal: one in favour and one against. The person in opposition was against the idea of commemorating elected officials in general.

Kristina Maria launches new album Orleans singersongwriter has eyes on European success Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC entertainment – The novelty of hearing their high school friend on the radio hasn’t worn off for Kristina Maria’s friends. She still gets “at least 10 texts every day” from people who heard one of her singles, which have been played heavily on Canadian radio. “You’d think it would have worn off by now,” she laughed. While she’s became to hearing it, the

first time she heard herself played on an Ottawa radio station won’t be forgotten. “I said, ‘Oh my god, that’s my jam on the radio,’” she said, of hearing the song Let’s Play. “I had to press eject to make sure it wasn’t my CD playing.” She uses the stage name Kristina Maria, omitting her last name and using Maria, her middle name, in it’s place. With Let’s Play, Co-Pilot and Our Song Comes On all succeeding on the Canadian pop music charts, she released her first full album called Tell the World on April 10 at MusiquePlus in Montreal. It’s a day she waited for since elementary school. Going to grade school in Gatineau and high school in Orleans, she always knew her career would be in music. She played in local talent shows and competitions around the Ottawa area, gaining exposure and stage experience. As soon as she graduated from Garneau high school, she went to Fort Lau-

derdale, Fla., to record a demo. “As an artist, you knock on a lot of doors,” she said, of shopping her demo around. “You’re going to get shut down a million and 10 times.” But Kristina Maria’s friends weren’t the only ones to get behind the now 22year-old singer. Vito Luprano, the manager who first signed Céline Dion, took notice when he heard that she was writing the songs she was singing, unlike many other pop artists. He signed Kristina Maria, and the past two years have been a whirlwind of travelling, writing, recording and promoting that led up to the release of her album. She co-wrote 11 of the 14 upbeat, danceable songs on the album, alongside writers like JC Chassez of NSYNC fame, and Kristian Lundin. See FRENCH on page 7

clear. Smoking animals out of chimneys can cause chimney fires because the babies aren’t able to get out with the mother. A mother animal could also cause significant property damage trying to get to her babies if she is blocked from them, DuBreuil said. DuBreuil said trapping animals won’t help because the Ontario Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act says the animals can only be moved one kilometre from where they were found. She encouraged residents with wildlife problems to consult the centre’s website www.wildlifeinfo.ca, which offers tips and instructions

EMC news - The OttawaCarleton Wildlife Centre is asking residents to have a little patience this spring when dealing with wild animals on their property. According to centre director Donna DuBreuil, between April and June, the wildlife birthing season is at its peak. Wild mothers are looking for safe spaces to nest with their young until there is enough tree cover in the natural areas to protect their babies from predators. Wild animals such as squirrels, raccoons or skunks will look for attics, chimneys or outdoor staircases

to escape the elements and provide shelter for their babies. DuBreuil said residents who encounter this problem, should offer the wild mothers a grace period to wean their babies before taking any animal-proofing measures. “Let her have her time to raise them and move them,” DuBreuil said. “When the mother’s taking them out to eat because they’re weaned, that’s the safest time (to animal proof).” Barricading or blocking up the areas where the animals are nesting could trap babies in inaccessible areas, where they usually die and cause bad smells that require expensive drywall removal to

Summit on land-use planning April 26 EMC news - How can we work together to build a better city?

The City of Ottawa will host a summit to discuss how land-use planning can lead to

a more vibrant city on April 26 at the CE Centre at 4899 Uplands Dr., near the airport.

With development issues becoming the most heated topics in neighbourhoods across

Ottawa, the formerly dull area of land-use planning has inspired new heights of interest. The day-long event is an opportunity to discuss the planning challenges facing Ottawa with Mayor Jim Watson, planning committee chairman Peter Hume (councillor for Alta Vista Ward), planning professionals, development industry representatives, businesses and community members. The summit will invite Toronto-based urban planner and Perverse Cities author Pamela Blais as the keynote speaker. Blais’ book, subtitled Hidden Subsidies, Wonky Policy and Urban Sprawl, argues that both flawed public policy and market distortions contribute to promoting unsustainable urban sprawl. Blais’ talk at 10:15 a.m. will be followed by roundtable discussions on several topics, including growth in rural areas, tall buildings and suburban development. Jeffery Tumlin, a “leading thinker in transit-oriented development,” according to city press release, will also speak to what Ottawa should plan

for its future light-rail transit hubs. His 1 p.m. speech will be followed by more roundtable chats on transit-oriented development, community design plans and economic development. At the end of the day, Hume will close off with a summation of the day’s discussions. In May, the city’s planning committee will receive a report on the key themes that come out of the planning summit. That report will “help shape future planning initiatives and the work programs for the review of the Official Plan, Transportation Master Plan and Infrastructure Master Plan,” according to the city. Space is limited and the city says to register by April 11 to ensure a spot. Register by emailing planningsummit@ ottawa.ca or calling 311. More information is available at ottawa.ca/planningsummit. If you can’t make it, the city will have a live webcast feed on ottawa.ca to show Watson and Hume’s talks, the open forum and the wrap-up.

Youth workers shed light on addiction Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC news - Karen James from Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services works closely with drug and alcohol addicts. Some are adults in recovery, others are teenagers who abuse hard drugs and alcohol. She’s worked in the field for 17 years and on March 29, James attended a workshop where she learned even more about dealing with youth who have substance abuse issues, hearing stories from colleagues in related areas. “So far it’s interesting, and I think it’s laying a framework that will be very helpful for people in the field,” said James, who was on break from the workshop that took place at the Hellenic Meeting and Reception Centre on Prince of Wales Drive. About 170 youth workers from education, youth justice, employment, Aboriginal youth services and children/ youth mental health services gathered at the centre to hear about a document put together by Addictions Ontario that was developed by experts and includes best practices for helping clients with substance abuse issues. “We’re looking at a collective experience of people and bringing them together,” said Dave Roy, director of addiction services at HopeGreyBruce Mental Health and Addiction Services in Owen Sound. The document was launched in 2008 and has been present-

ed to workers across Ontario. “We wanted it to be a live document, and keep it fresh,” said Deborah Irwin, manager of Algoma Family Services based in Sault Ste. Marie. Roy said the document outlines what is most effective in helping young people with addiction problems. For example, he said harm reduction is outlined as an effective way of helping people with addictions. Harm reduction, explained Roy, is about helping people who aren’t ready to quit. WANT TO STOP

“If they’re not ready to change, we look at what’s the best we can do until they get to the point where they want to stop,” Roy said, adding that he deals with youth who are involved in binge drinking. “Harm reduction says to look at your drinking and ask if there’s any way we can reduce it so it’s not as harmful. So you’re not drinking to the point of alcohol poisoning, you can reduce it back and that’s a start.” Roy also said that alcohol is the most widely used substance and it kills more young people than all other illegal drugs combined. Irwin added that alcohol is a major issue that addiction professionals face with their clients because it’s so readily available. “Society tends not to look at alcohol as being a substance that can be misused,” she said. “It’s more socially acceptable than drug use.”

French versions selling Continued from front

The whole album is meant to be a “day-in-the-life” of the songstress, whether it’s the reaction to a reminder of an exboyfriend, or the morning-after feeling of some regrettable text messages. “It is what it is, I’m putting myself out there,” she said. “I wanted it to be 100 per cent me.” She’s used her francophone background to appeal in Montreal as well, recording a French version of Co-Pilot, which features francophone artist Corneille. It’s been in heavy rotation on the Quebec radio and has set her up to try and break through in the European music scene. In several weeks she’ll travel to Belguim and France to release the French version of the song, as well as a French version of We Belong Together. “You don’t believe it,” she said of her success. Music videos and songs are available at www.kristinamariamusic.com, and the entire Tell the World album is available for purchase on iTunes.

OPINION EDITORIAL

Pet owners have stake in what’s left behind

S

pring. Even the word sounds good. Relief after frostbite

season. Unfortunately, spring also brings with it the evidence that some dog walkers aren’t doing their duty after their pet has done theirs. Parks, boulevards, sidewalks and pathways in some places are awash in poop and that’s no fun for anyone. The vast majority of dog

owners clean up after their pet – if they didn’t, we’d be knee deep in the stuff by now. So how do we convince the offending few to scoop? Do we need more laws and regulations? Pet owners would no doubt say “No.” And our bylaw officers have better things to do than stake out parks on the off-chance a bad owner will offend in plain view.

Do we need better education? The city advises owners to scoop poop and take it home, where they should flush it down the toilet so that our sewage system can treat the dog dirt like it does our own. Why not use a garbage can in the park or the bin at home? Turns out all the poop that ends up in the trash will become part of the city’s landfill, making it even more

of a challenge to prevent toxins from seeping into our waterways. Even if you own a dog and choose to use a garbage can, that’s a darn sight better than failing to scoop at all. Maybe we need to make things easier for all pet owners by providing better poop containers in the, shall we say, hotspots. That would take tax dollars. Some offenders may be children who don’t like

the idea of carrying a bag of poop to the garbage or back home. If your son or daughter takes the dog out for a walk, why not insist they bring home what Rover eliminates, just to be sure your family isn’t part of the problem. In the end (no pun intended), if the problem gets worse, society will put in place penalties or regulations that affect all dog owners – the good and the bad.

Maybe licence costs will rise to cover clean-up costs. Maybe a bylaw you disagree with will be passed. To avoid those potential pitfalls, pet owners should be at the forefront of making sure all owners scoop after their dogs. Use peer pressure. Use education. Carry an extra bag to clean up after an owner who gives you a bad name. After all, it’s dog owners that have the most to lose.

COLUMN

Making your own noise CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

his happened at a basketball game at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, but it could have been anywhere. The scoreboard lights up and says “NOISE!” and a voice booms out: “Make some noise!” And guess what? Everybody makes noise. Sheep, that’s what we are. Noisy sheep. Somebody with a microphone tells us to do something and we do it. There’s nothing new about this. It’s been going on in stadiums and arenas ever since the technology allowed it. But there was a time when the noise was spontaneous. It came from the flow of the game. When the game became exciting, the fans became excited, all by themselves. “We want a hit!” is a vintage bit of noise, found at ancient baseball games. Now nobody says “We want a hit!” Instead, we clap or stomp our feet if the scoreboard tells us to. Occasionally the scoreboard gets it right. The folks begin chanting “DEE-FENCE!” just around the time that defence is called for. That’s nice, you think, but then you look up at the scoreboard and realize that the fans are chanting “DEE-FENCE!” because that’s what’s on the scoreboard. There must be limits to this. Surely, you would not throw your beer at the mascot if the scoreboard said “THROW YOUR BEER AT THE MASCOT!” But you never know. History is full of examples of weird crowd behaviour, of people doing things they never thought they would do because everyone else was. While you wish people would be a bit more individualistic in crowds at the arena, confor-

mity is not always a bad thing. We all stop at the red light, for example. Individualistic behaviour at intersections would not be helpful to society. Likewise, people doing whatever they want in the classroom can create problems. The same with church. The same with shopping mall parking lots. But a little spontaneity can be refreshing. And it can be quite effective. I know a guy who knows a guy who knows another guy who claims that he began the spontaneous chant about firing the coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs. “FIRE WILSON!” he chanted, early in the game and nothing happened. Nobody else chanted with him. He tried it a couple of times more and eventually it worked. Without prompting from the scoreboard, the chant spread around the arena. Perhaps it worked too well. Whether it was a direct result or not, the coach was looking for other employment the next day. For sure, this was unkind. You wouldn’t want to show up at work and find everyone chanting that you should be fired. But at least it was spontaneous. A slightly less spontaneous chant arose at Scotiabank Place the other night, when fans of Daniel Alfredsson began chanting his name at a time specified in an Internet campaign. This was nice, richly deserved and definitely an improvement over slavishly following the dictates of the scoreboard and the public address system. Some day the Internet may replace the scoreboard as cheerleader and we’ll have to watch out. People get into trouble following the crowd on the Internet. Bad things happen to their computers, or worse. Most people who know hockey and know Ottawa expect there to be real emotion in the stands in the playoff games to come. So much so that no one should need any prompting to jump up and cheer. The question is whether we have become so accustomed to following the scoreboard that we’ll still wait to be prompted. We shouldn’t. “Go Sens go!” is not the world’s most original cheer, but it will sound great when 19,153 or so people are chanting it all by themselves.

Mental Health Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art group provides equal access for artists Show at RichelieuVanier Community Centre

When 37,000 Canadians die from smokingrelated illness every year, should government ignore these facts and stick their heads in the ground like ostriches? Or, should they enact laws to protect the health and safety of residents, including societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most vulnerable?

in a wide variety of shows, including an entrepreneurship and art event, and the psychosocial rehabilitation conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for everyone to express themselves,â&#x20AC;? said group member Curtis Shaw. Shaw is a west Ottawa origami artist, who individually paints squares of paper using a variety of brush techniques, before intricately folding the squares into cranes, flowers or a variety of other forms. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been able to create income from his origami art, selling paper crane earrings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always wanted to be the origami guy,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has really helped me become some what of a business person.â&#x20AC;? Bev Cummings is a Centretown poet, who credits the group and CMHA with helping her self-publish her book of poetry, titled A Good Death. GagnĂŠ has helped many of the artists share their art, through self-publishing or finding areas to display work artists in the group produce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find it inspiring that peo-

In this light, I am proud that on April 2, 2012, the City of Ottawa demonstrated leadership to protect all residents from the dangerous effects of second-hand smoke. In addition to ensuring            

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while playing at beaches and parks, we will be able to enjoy Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renowned patio season free of malodorous cigarette smell and the risk of being exposed to poisonous chemicals, which are known to cause cancer. As countries all over the world enact laws to stamp out smoking in public places for the betterment of society, the act of taking-up cigarettes continues to decline. In fact, Ottawa Public Health estimates that on average around 15% of Ottawans smoke, which is down from 24% ten years ago. To this end, I ask those residents who say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nanny-stateâ&#x20AC;?, why should the right of the 15% (smokers) to light-up anywhere he or she pleases take precedent over the right to health of the 85% (non-smokers) of us?

ple with the group donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say no to being attached to the CMHA,â&#x20AC;? Cummings said. While the group doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discuss their mental issues, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a supportive environment in the way itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilitated. If someone canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a meeting because of a rough day, or is late for a show, no one complains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be at every meeting because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of the nature of the beast,â&#x20AC;? Cummings said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most unstructured, structured group,â&#x20AC;? GagnĂŠ said. The artists have created a branding, including Moods Expressed business cards and postcards to help promote their place in the artistic community. They follow a wide variety of art forms, including wood carving, painting, photography and writing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This provides an equal place in that community. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the main struggle, to have equal access,â&#x20AC;? GagnĂŠ said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I come in a lot.â&#x20AC;? The Moods Expressed group now has a show at the Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre until the end of April. More information is available online at www.moodsexpressed.com.

Simply put: smokers have rights but so do nonsmokers. People who drink alcohol also have rights; however, these rights are limited when one personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reckless behaviour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; drinking and driving - causes the loss of innocent life. Well, second-hand smoke causes the loss of innocent lives every year. In fact, the Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation estimates approximately 6,300 non-smokers die each year from exposure to second-hand smoke.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been lost during this divisive debate is that our anti-smoking effort is geared to protect the health of smokers, as well. The majority of smokers Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chatted with would quit in a heartbeat if there were such a magic pill. As such, our bylaw may not be magical, but according to StatsCan, smokers who reported newly smoke-free places were more likely to quit over the next two years, compared with those who did not encounter such restrictions.            

improve their own lives. According to Health Canada, within 48 hours of quitting, a smokerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chance of having a heart attack start to go down and their sense of smell and taste begin to improve! Within 1-year, the risk of smokingrelated heart attack is cut in half! Within 10 years, the risk of dying from lung cancer is cut in half! And lastly, within 15 years, the risk of dying from a heart attack is equal to a person who never smoked!             

the best interests of all taxpayers regardless of whether or not they smoke cigarettes. Public health is too important to shrink from oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you deserve no less.

Public service cuts not as deep as feared Museums spared, but NCC, NAC and CBC budgets trimmed Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - While many observers viewed the impending federal budget as a dark cloud looming over the public service, job cuts were not as deep as expected in the budget released March 30. But tough times are still anticipated as the Conservative government looks to trim 19,200 jobs, or 4.8 per cent of the federal workforce. As the largest employer by far in the capital region, the federal public service cuts will be felt in Ottawa more so than any other place in Canada, says the union that represents public service workers. It’s still unclear how many of those 19,200 jobs will be eliminated in this city. But John Gordon, national president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada, dismissed Ottawa West-Nepean MP John Baird’s recent claim that the cuts to jobs in the capital region would only amount to around 4,800. “I believe the numbers are greater than the 4,800,” Gordon said. About 12,000 government jobs will be lost to layoffs

over the next three years and another 7,200 will be eliminated by attrition through retirement and voluntary departures. Information about how many jobs are to be eliminated – and where – was beginning to trickle to the alliance’s attention last week. Gordon couldn’t comment on specifics until after April 4, but the job losses, particularly in the capital region, are significant, he said. “It’s substantial, I must say,” Gordon said. The move should save around $5.2 billion annually by 2014-15 as part of an overall government spending review. The number of public servants is already set to go down following reviews conducted between 2007 and 2010, Gordon said, and another batch of jobs were lost during a 2010 federal hiring freeze. While the cuts don’t amount to austerity measures implemented by the Liberal government in the ’90s that cut federal employment by 14 per cent, Gordon said any increase in unemployment will have an impact on the lo-

able to go out to your local businesses and do the same things you would normally … I’d say they’re going to have to pinch their pennies, but they’re gone, too.” Gordon was referring to another casualty of the federal budget; the one-cent coin is set to cease production by the fall, which will save the federal government $11 million a year (it actually costs 1.6 cents to produce each copper-plated coin). Gordon said the alliance wants to work with government departments to ensure that retraining and assistance

is available to help public servants move into different jobs within the federal government, if they are available. While a lot of public servants who live in Ottawa may decide to stay in the city because their families and finances are entrenched here, workers have to be willing to be mobile in this harsh economy, Gordon said. “There may be some people who get other opportunities in government and may move into another region,” Gordon said. The federal budget doesn’t include any changes to fund-

City seeking business to expand Potvin Arena Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

R0011339213/0405

EMC news - The “havenot” east end is poised to get a big, shiny new athletic facility and new rinks thanks to a potential private partnership. The city set aside about $4.3 million to renovate the Potvin Arena in Shefford Park at 813 Shefford Rd. But after discussions between community members, Beacon Hill-Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney and city staff, it became clear that the types of upgrades needed would cost a minimum of $18 million, and building everything the community felt was needed would run around $28 million. That’s money the city doesn’t have, so the city’s finance committee approved

a plan to seek a business partner who is willing to pay the rest of the cost to build the facility, then operate and maintain it. While Tierney said some people see public-private partnerships, or P3s, as less than ideal, it makes sense to find a private partner for this project. The facility will fill a muchneeded void in ice time in the city’s east end, said Tierney, who is also a hockey coach for his children’s teams. Tierney said the Gloucester Centre Minor Hockey Association alone has 225 teams, Tierney said, and each of those teams needs to find 20 chunks of ice time throughout a season. “They’re scrambling,” he said.

The site is ideally located to become a draw to bring people into the east end, Tierney said. It is easy to access because it’s close to the highway. But even more significant is the strong business case to expand the arena, due to the draw the facility will have because it will fulfill a need for ice and sports facilities in the east end, Tierney said. “The east has always been left out,” Tierney said. “It will absolutely be used – no doubt.” If the city brings in a private business partner to build and run the facility, the city would have a negotiated rate for ice time to ensure it will be affordable for families. “We want to make sure it’s a viable solution,” Tierney said. “It’s all about the kids.” Details of what would actually be built at the facility won’t be available until companies respond to a request for proposals, when they will describe what could be done with the facility. Tierney said the project will include more parking and traffic fixes to redirect vehicles through the nearby business park. Tierney said it would be a “dream come true” to get four new ice pads at Shefford Park. Construction could happen

After a city review that revealed more than $18 million in upgrades were wanted at the Potvin Arena in Shefford Park, the city is now seeking a private partner to top up its $4.3 million in funding in order to build and run a more comprehensive sportsplex. in 2013 if a suitable partner is found, Tierney said. While it would be ideal to build a rec complex as a completely city-owned and -run facility, Tierney said P3s are becoming more common and are an excellent way to deliver services the community

needs, but that the city can’t afford. Ottawa has learned a lot of the failed P3 that led to building the Ray Friel Recreation Complex in Orleans. A private partner built that facility, but when the company couldn’t afford to run it, the city had to

take it over. Since then, the city has successfully partnered to build the Bell Sensplex in Kanata and the Cavanaugh Sportsplex in Kinburn, Tierney said. “There is a lot of merit in P3s,” he said. “It’s becoming more common.”

Sens’ Karlsson at forefront of Norris debate

By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com He’s enjoyed a front-row seat during this season for the ages. And Senators goaltender Craig Anderson minces no words when he talks about the massive impact Erik Karlsson’s many talents — fully unleashed in a system that emphasizes speed above all else — have had during Ottawa’s surprising run to a berth in the Stanley Cup playoffs. “He’s been outstanding for us,” Anderson said of a blueliner who has emerged as a serious contender for the James Norris Trophy, awarded annually to the National Hockey League’s top defenceman. “When he’s on the ice, he makes things happen.” No defenceman in the league owns a more impressive set of statistics than the 21-year-old Swede, a first-round pick by the Senators (15th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Heading into the final two games of the Senators’ season, his 77 points (19 goals, 58 assists) were tops among all NHL blueliners and it isn’t even a race — next in line, both with 52 as of a week ago, were Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins and Brian Campbell of the Florida Panthers. Only three other defencemen in league

history have held a margin of at least 20 points over their nearest pursuer in a given season. All of them — Bobby Orr, Paul Coffey and Denis Potvin — are Hockey Hall of Famers. Through play last Wednesday, you also would have found Karlsson’s name atop the leaderboard among NHL blueliners in shots (252),

even-strength points (49), goals (16) and assists (33). He also rates second in power-play points (28) and five of his goals have been game winners. Proving that he’s not all offence, the native of Landsbro, Sweden, tops all league blueliners in takeaways (64). But Karlsson’s value to the Senators goes way

They are opening the post-season on the road, with Games 3, 4 and a potential Game 6 all slated to be played at Scotiabank Place. Senators season-seat owners who have renewed their seats for 2012-13 (in addition to any new season-seat purchasers) will be eligible to purchase playoff tickets at the same cost

Also, season-seat packages for the 2012-13 season are currently on sale and will provide priority access for any additional 2012 playoff rounds.

beyond the numbers. Anderson, for one, will tell you there is no defenceman in the NHL who means more to his team in terms of its success. “We wouldn’t be where we are right now without him,” said Anderson. “Hands down, he is one of the main reasons why we sit where we sit (in a playoff position). I can’t say that for any other defenceman in the league right now, that their team is so dependent on one player. “Not that we rely on just one player but in the grand scheme of things, he is our Sidney Crosby or whatever you want to call him for our team.” Karlsson hears this kind of praise and is clearly flattered by it all. But with a straight face, he’ll tell you that there is only one statistic he concerns himself with in every game — the two points the Senators get for a win. “Obviously, I’m happy

that people appreciate what I’m doing and liking what I’m doing out on the ice,” said Karlsson. “And I like that people are noticing this team is a good team ... I think we’ve been playing pretty consistently all year long.” He has also proven to be a perfect fit for the style of play head coach Paul MacLean has gotten his team to embrace since the start of his first season behind the Ottawa bench. “Going fast,” as MacLean likes to put it, fits right into Karlsson’s wheelhouse. “The way the game is played now, you have to have a lot of speed,” said Karlsson. “But you also have to have a lot of creativity, and you’ve got to be able to create opportunities for yourself. All the teams (in the NHL) play pretty solid defence and (MacLean) came in with that philosophy, that we needed to generate a lot of speed and create a lot of opportunities and not just sit back and hope the other team makes mistakes. It’s been working pretty well for us.” Lest you think Karlsson is all about offence, Anderson points toward his plusminus rating, which stood at +19 with two games to go — a huge jump from the -30 he sported a year ago. It’s particularly impressive given that the Senators’ goal differential as a team is currently +13. “With Karl, look at his plus-minus,” said Anderson. “It’s around +20 and Chara is around +35 and he’s on the best team in the league for goal differential. And we have a +13 differential as a team and (Karlsson) is about +20. Right there, that shows you he’s a competitor both offensively and defensively. “The biggest thing I’ve seen in his game is that he’s a two-way player. If he makes a mistake, he’s the first guy back and he makes a big play defensively.” R0011347004_0412

‘CSI gloves’ are handy even Unhealthy habits are costing when there’s no crime scene Ontarians 7.5 years of life

T

here’s one type of glove that is really useful in the kitchen. It’s the thin latex type, sometimes referred to as CSI gloves. If you’re not familiar with the TV series, CSI stands for Crime Scene Investigation. You can buy these gloves by the boxful at most pharmacies and you’ll quickly discover how many uses they have around the kitchen. The gloves will keep your hands clean when you’re mixing meatloaf, or shaping meatballs or hamburger patties. If you’re dipping meat, chicken or fish in a liquid such as milk or egg, then in flour or bread crumbs, or in a barbecue sauce, the latex gloves will really come in handy to keep your hands clean. If you’re mixing or shaping cookie dough or kneading a sticky biscuit or bread dough, wearing CSI gloves reduces the mess in the kitchen. Slip the gloves off when you have to transfer a baking sheet or pan to the oven and you won’t be transferring bits of dough to everything you touch. And if you’re interrupted when you’re in the middle of a messy task, you can slip

PAT TREW Food ‘n’ Stuff off the gloves and respond to the interruption, whether it’s the phone ringing or a family member in need. To avoid cross-contamination, always discard the gloves after handling any raw meat or egg product. If you use the heavier yellow rubber kitchen gloves to wash dishes, you probably find that it’s always the right hand glove that gets a hole in it first. When that happens, instead of throwing out both gloves, keep the left hand glove. Turning the left glove inside out will make it into a glove that fits the right hand. Keep it as a spare for the next time you need to replace a right hand glove. And here’s another tip that you may find useful, particularly if you have a large collection of cookbooks. You may find, as I do, that you remember seeing a recipe, but you can’t recall which

cookbook it was in. Consider starting an index of your own for the recipes that you’re most likely to try. Whenever you browse through a cookbook, have a notebook handy. When you come across a recipe that you’d like to try, jot down the name of the recipe and the title of the cookbook in your notebook. Include the page number and any extra comments that will help you remember later what was special about it. Then, when you’re looking for a particular recipe, you’ll be able to check your own personalized index to find it. This will make it much easier to find the recipe. It also helps to use a sticky note to mark the page in the cookbook. Jot down the name of the recipe on the note and stick it on the appropriate page with the recipe name showing above the top of the page.

EMC news - Unhealthy habits are costing Ontarians 7.5 years of life. However, by reducing five unhealthy behaviours Ontarians could become the healthiest people in the entire country. New research from the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES), Public Health Ontario (PHO), the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) and the University of Ottawa shows 60 per cent of deaths in Ontario are attributed to smoking, alcohol, poor diet, lack of physical activity and stress but suggests Ontarians could make remarkable gains in life expectancy if we all collectively made changes towards healthier living. “Individually, if we all make one change like smoking less or being more physically active, then collectively we would be significantly healthier and live much longer,” says Doug Manuel, lead author and senior scientist at ICES and OHRI. Overall, Ontarians would gain 7.5 years of life expectancy if everyone were in the healthiest category for all five behavioural risks examined. Smoking, physical inactivity and poor diet

each contribute two to 2.5 years of lost life expectancy. If everyone modified only their most important health risk, overall life expectancy would increase by up to 3.7 years. “The evidence shows that these five risk factors steal both years from our lives and quality from our lives”, says Dr. Vivek Goel, president and CEO of PHO. “If we want sustained improvements in health, we need to focus our collective efforts on reducing these risk factors, both individually and at a population health level.” The study found: • 60 per cent of all deaths in Ontario are attributable to five risks • Almost all Ontarians have at least one of the five risks • Increasing physical activity and improving diet are the most common changes that Ontarians could make to improve their health • Improving healthy behaviour will not only improve length of life, but also the amount of healthy life “The impact that modifiable behaviours have on our health is astounding. Not only will we increase our life expectancy but being healthier will mean there will be fewer demands on both formal care giving like hospitals and informal care like family,” says Manuel, an associate professor in faculty of medicine at uOttawa. More detailed study findings are available on the ICES website at www.ices.on.ca and on the Public Health Ontario website at www. oahpp.ca/sevenmoreyears.html.

Love affair with English

M

other said it was a day to remember. Father said it was a day Mother took leave of her senses and he threw in “a fool and her money are soon parted” as well. It was a phrase he used often. Like the day Mother spent a whole quarter on a long distance phone call to her friend in New York, when a three cent stamp would have done just as well. The excitement started long before that special day, however. It all began when Mother decided what our family needed was a big dictionary. Just like the one that sat on the corner of Miss Crosby’s desk with the Bible. Mother had a continuing love affair with the English language and she thought every new word we could learn would be like, as she called it, “a jewel in our crown.” I was never able to figure that one out. My older sister Audrey wasn’t sure exactly what Mother meant either, although she was reasonably sure every new word would have a lot to do with whatever success we would reach when we were all grown up. At any rate, Mother decided what our family needed was a big black Webster dictionary. There was an ad in the Philadelphia Inquirer and

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories it would cost next to nothing and be shipped free any place in the world. Mother filled out the coupon from the paper, wrote COD on it, put it in an envelope and Audrey was ordered to put it in our mailbox on the way to school the next morning. And so the work began. Everyone, but Father of course, was on a mission. Every penny, every nickel was put in the blue sugar bowl building up for the day the mailman would deliver the big dictionary, that was coming all the way from New York. Then one day, as we were coming down our long lane, there was Mother standing in the open doorway frantically waving her arms in the air. “It’s here ... it’s here!” We knew without asking what it was. There it was, in all its glory ... sitting on a clean white flour bag tea towel on the kitchen table. It was almost as big as the family bible. Mother wouldn’t let

any of us touch it until we had thoroughly washed our hands. Once we all had a good look at it, Mother carried it into the parlour and put it on the twig table. Rules were made on the spot. No one was to lay a finger on it until the hands had been washed. And no turning down a page to mark a place. No pencil marks underlining a word. We vowed to abide by every rule. After all, this was a major expense and it had to be treated with the utmost respect. Mother said if the dictionary was going to be worth anything, it had to be used, so we were to each find a word every night, write it down and become familiar with it. The ritual became part of our lives, just like browsing through Eaton’s catalogue and writing in our diaries. It opened up a whole new world for us on that backwoods farm deep in the heart of the Ottawa Valley and so began our life-long love affair with words and the English language. 0329.R0011323226

His Girl Friday a legal fundraiser Photo students get snapping EMC news - The Great Canadian Theatre Company in association with County of Carleton Law Association is pleased to produce the 13th annual Lawyer Play Fundraiser. Judges and lawyers from Ottawa’s legal community will be starring in a production of the 1940s screwball, whirlwind of a comedy, His Girl Friday, at the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre from April 25 to 28. This fast-paced, period piece is directed by CAO award-winner, Patrick Gauthier. Tickets for

the gala evenings (April 26 to 28) are $100 and include a post-show reception and a $50 tax receipt. Tickets for the preview performance on April 25 are $35. Tickets are available through any cast member or at the GCTC box office by calling 613-236-5196. Since 1999, the Lawyer Play fundraiser has raised money for GCTC’s productions and charity partners. A community organization is chosen every year by the Lawyer Play steering committee to receive a portion of the proceeds from the event.

The 2012 charity partner is the Lawyer’s Zambia School Project, created in memory of Ottawa lawyer Iain Beaudoin. Ottawa’s legal community is raising funds to build a school in Munenga, Zambia in partnership with the Emmanuel United Church of Ottawa and the People’s Action Forum of Zambia. The project is estimated to cost $40,000. Members of the Ottawa legal community will be travelling to Zambia to help with the construction of the school in May.

EMC news - The School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa will open its doors to the public for the vernissage of Exhibition No. 7 on April 20, between 3 and 9 p.m. The entire school will be turned into a gallery and open to the public. This student work pays tribute to classic processes while reflecting ideas of self discovery, our natural environments and the contemporary social issues that surround them. The Red Wall Gallery will feature Patronize, a selection of works evoking questions about the degree the demands of markets, employers, and patrons shape the works of visual artists. Works

by foundation students reveal significant evolution in visual and conceptual practices while artists in residence will exhibit works created during their year of individually directed, advanced research and production. Each of the 26 students has a compelling story behind their work. Artists’ talks on April 21 and 22, beginning at 11 p.m. will focus on work and processes as diverse as documentary photography, digitized mixed media and the wet plate collodion process. SPAO is celebrating its seventh year. The school is located at 168 Dalhousie St. Visit www.spao.ca for details.

Health Council encouraged by Senate committee’s health accord report 46 recommendations for reform of Canada’s health care system EMC news - The Health Council of Canada welcomes the recent report issued by the Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology. The committee reviewed the remaining work that is needed to meet the goals of the 10-Year Plan to Strengthen Health Care. The resulting document, Time for Transformative Change, released last week, is a comprehensive report with 46 recommendations outlining how to continue to ensure progress is made in reforming Canada’s health care system. The report emphasized the need for government action including federal leadership in guiding and promoting reform across jurisdictions. It also recommended the use of federal funding to support the necessary changes in how health services are delivered by the provinces and territories. The Health Council is pleased to see that many of its recommendations made it into the final report such as the need for measurable goals, timetables and pub-

lic reporting employed by governments to improve our health care system. As the Health Council’s Progress Report 2011 noted, where jurisdictions have comprehensive strategies for reform that include clear targets and measurable goals, better progress was achieved. Wait times is just such an example. “Accountability supported by strong public reporting is essential to achieve transformative change in health care,” says Dr. Jack Kitts, Chair of the Health Council of Canada.

“Focusing on innovative practices allows the health council to share what is working...” John G. Abbott

“By establishing solid governance structures, measurable goals and clear targets as suggested by the Senators, we can gauge our successes, highlight areas in need of attention and charge those responsible to make the improvements.” The senate report echoes many of the observations and recommendations contained in the Health Council’s re-

cent work, including primary health care reform and the importance of patient engagement. The report also stresses the need to focus on health promotion and chronic disease prevention, which is a crucial shift to thinking about the factors that materially affect our health rather than just the acute care system. In the coming months, the Health Council will continue to report on many key areas from the 10-Year Plan to Strengthen Health Care. Reports on home care and chronic disease self-management will be released in April and May respectively, followed by our annual Progress Report 2012 in June. “We look forward to providing our perspective in the areas the Senate has indicated as important in achieving the progress envisioned in the 10year plan. We will do this by continuing to highlight innovative practices from across the country,” said John G. Abbott, CEO of the Health Council of Canada. “Focusing on innovative practices allows the health council to share what is working and encourage the adoption of practices that have been demonstrated to strengthen Canada’s health care system.”

The transition to full-day kindergarten EMC news – Its 7:05 a.m. at Fallingbrook Community Elementary School, and the first kindergarten students are being dropped off for the day, their Spiderman backpacks filled with snacks and spare clothes. Some of them will stay until almost 6 p.m., with the combination of the third-party daycare on site and the fullday kindergarten program launched in September. Darlene Glover was one of the parents who dropped off her children, Logan, 7, and Parker, 4, at the onsite daycare before school started. Parker is part of the first full-day kindergarten class at the school, but happily attended the daycare for two months before he started school. “It makes it easier at the end of the day,” said Glover, who said she knows that the daycare staff are talking to Parker’s teachers during the transition to his classroom, with the doors only metres apart. It was a long day to start the

school year with, for the many three-year-olds that were part of Debbie Finlay-Parent’s junior kindergarten class in September. Finlay-Parent also teaches with an early childhood educator (ECE) every day, Kayleen Lapointe. The students in her class all turned four-years-old starting by last July, meaning the majority were still only threeyears-old for their first days of school. Finlay-Parent, known as Miss Debbie to her kids, has been teaching at Fallingbrook for 20 years and lives walking distance away; her daughter

now teaches at the school and her grandchildren are students. “It’s a big jump in,” she admitted, of the students who come to her with a “big range of base of knowledge.” Some parents choose to send their children half days to start, to ease them into fullday, every day, but the majority of the other students are together full days. “Even though the day is longer, it’s a lot more broken up,” Finlay-Parent said. “There’s time for the questions, time for the children to get involved.” The day is broken up with French, computer time, gym time, a quiet period, outdoor play and two “nutritional breaks” that are part of the new balanced day model, that means students eat two small meals a day, instead of one in the middle of the day. But along with the full-day program came a new curriculum, which is still a draft version. “The schedule is very complicated,” Finlay-Parent said. “The curriculum is very broad. It covers all the subjects, but how you go about doing it is different.” The curriculum says that learning has to be inquiry based, meaning the children indicate what they want to learn about, whether it’s trains or outer space. It mandates the children must have two one-hour uninterrupted play times. In FinlayParent’s class, this indicates time students have to go to the variety of stations she has set up. Some of the children elect to go make “puffy bunnies” (painting a bunny cutout with a mix of shaving cream and white glue) before switching over to the painting station, while others are happy playing with blocks for the majority of the time. The bunny station was a fa-

vourite for four-year old Jolie. “I want to stay here forever,” she said with a big smile. The new format means they aren’t assigned stations to start at, except for the start of the day, when several go to the journal station for about 15 minutes, and then feed into play time. It’s meant to encourage self-directed learning and independent problem-solving and decision making. When students Danica and Miah come to tell Miss Debbie there is only one toy that both of them want to use during play time, she instructs them to work it out between them. Seconds later, they’ve found a solution by themselves. Teachers are asked to then evaluate activities based on

each individual child through the same activities, helping one work more on gross motor skills, another on sharing. But the teachers and the classrooms are stretched fairly thin, even with the ECE assigned to the classroom. “Our class sizes are huge,” Finlay-Parent said. It’s doesn’t matter much at the several times throughout the day the students yell “group hug” and run to surround a visitor, but it can mean a tight squeeze on classroom space. With the half-day program, students used to show up after lunch, or leave right before. Now, feeding 25 four-year-olds at once leads to some bottlenecking at bathroom time. It’s not uncommon to see one of the students run across the hall

to the next kindergarten class to use the washroom, when the one in their class is busy. Fallingbrook was chosen as one of the schools to implement the full-day program in year two because they could accommodate all the children without capital expenses, said principal Denise Norris. “Students have managed very well,” she said. “I think full day learning is really supposed to provide play-based learning, but not all children are ready for that. Younger children might have a bit more difficulty.” Norris emphasized that the full-day program isn’t a pilot project, it’s simply in year two. Fallingbrook heard from schools that implemented it in year one, and will pass

on their experience to the schools who implement it in years three, four and five. “We have to keep adjusting to the needs of the kids,” Norris said. “We need to be patient, innovative, flexible.” It’s a change for some teachers, who have spent years teaching a more formalized curriculum. “With full day, we need to change our teaching,” Norris said. “And it’ll change their learning.” The curriculum wasn’t the only shocking change for veteran teachers. Used to teaching solo in their classroom, with the occasional aid of a parent-volunteer, they now work closely with the ECE every day.

Habitat for Humanity collecting 690 million pennies EMC news - Habitat for Humanity is collecting pennies from across Canada to fund the building of 69 more Habitat homes this year, one home for each of its local afďŹ liates. This announcement comes days after the Federal Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to discontinue production of the one-cent piece, and its suggestion that citizens donate their extra coins to charity. Each of the 69 regional Habitat afďŹ liates across Canada is attempting to collect ten million pennies, equaling $100,000, or the average cost of the materials needed to build one safe, decent and affordable Habitat home. The ulti-

mate goal of the campaign is to collect a total of 690 million pennies in order to help each of Habitatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canadian afďŹ liates give the hand up of homeownership to one more low-income family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited to kick-off this nationwide campaign,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart Hardacre, President & CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through the simple donation of spare pennies, more low-income Canadians will gain access to homeownership that is affordable, igniting a transformation within families that will last for generations to come.â&#x20AC;? As part of this national initiative,

Habitat for Humanity afďŹ liate ofďŹ ces and ReStores, building supply and home decor stores run by local Habitat afďŹ liates, will be accepting penny donations. Visit www.habitat.ca to ďŹ nd the afďŹ liate ofďŹ ce or ReStore nearest you. Contact Habitat in your community to conďŹ rm hours of operation and drop off times. In Canada, Habitat has given the hand up of affordable homeownership to over 2,000 families since 1985. Habitat homes are sold to low-income families through interest-free mortgages with no down payment required, allowing families to break the cycle of poverty.

Plan ahead before beginning projects EMC news - Hydro Ottawa is partnering with other local utilities to urge you to locate underground utilities before beginning your outdoor projects such as installing a new deck or planting a new tree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before beginning any outdoor project that involves digging, think of your safety and the safety of those around you,â&#x20AC;? said Hydroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Norm Fraser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Accidentally hitting underground utilities, including power lines, can cause injury, property damage and inconvenient outages.â&#x20AC;? Having utilities located

before digging is required by law under the Ontario Occupational Health and Safety Act. To book a free cable locate appointment, homeowners and contractors can contact Ontario One Call 24/7 at 1-800-4002255 or www.on1call.com at least ďŹ ve business days before they plan to dig. Once the underground lines are marked, you will know the approximate location of your utility lines and can dig safely. For more information on Dig Safe month, visit www. digsafe.ca.

Daycare and school have unique partnership Continued from page 31

Lapointe came from a daycare background with smaller student-teacher ratios, and had to adjust to the times of the day where she’s responsible for the entire class. It’s also an adjustment for both halves of the teaching staff to co-teaching, developing day plans and learning units together as a pair. The ECE educational background is different, focusing on the very youngest in the school system, instead of the wider primary years studied by teachers. It means during gym class, the teacher might ask Lapointe what will help the tiny four-year olds best improve their gross-motor skills, knowing she brings a different skill set. Lapointe is fortunate to have a good schedule, a result of working in a full day classroom with a third party

daycare. In the extended day program being implemented at other schools with full-day kindergarten programs, the same ECEs who teach in the classroom provide before and

after-school care in a boardrun program. Lapointe’s not the only ECE that many of the kids will work with, with the daycare staff next door to the kindergarten class all ECE certified. SEAMLESS DAY

The classroom and daycare ECEs have different days. The daycare ECEs arrive early, break mid-day, and return again in time to make snack and be prepared for the end of the school day. As the school day ends, the children who attend the daycare – 100 in total, but 30 in kindergarten – head to the daycare door to anxiously hear what snack is going to be. That day, it’s cucumber and cream cheese wheels; the craft is bunny ears for the upcoming Easter weekend. The atmosphere has changed from the classroom, as the staff count the number of children in each room to make sure that their ratios are in tact. The daycare, run through Global Child Services, a nonprofit, falls under the Day Nurseries Act, which means the children have to be in a specific low-ratio bracket. It also means that one student, feeling a bit ill, can have his temperature taken, something the school isn’t allowed to do. It’s confirmed that he’s

got a fever, and parents are called. This is a different system than other schools are using with the extended day program, run through the board. The extended day program is more of an extension of the classroom, with the same rooms and ECEs usually being used. At Fallingbrook, they use a third-party daycare, which falls under the Day Nurseries Act and is administered by Global Child Care Services, unlike the board run extended day before and after care. The principal is left to administrate the before and after school care when the program is run by the board. Fallingbrook parents are happy with the system they use, and have strongly advocated for the benefits of Global Child Care Services at the school to the board. “The board should focus on education,” said Glover, about the difference if her sons were put in an extended day program. “(The daycare) is a different way of interacting with children that’s different from the classroom.” The daycare program is also open Monday to Friday year-round, closed only on statutory holidays. It means parents aren’t left scrambling to find different arrangements with different people on March break or come summer time for their children.

Fallingbrook was built to have a daycare, with the original plans having a parent-run daycare facility on site. Global Child Services began running services over 10 years ago, and has become a part of the school that parents have strongly embraced. Audrey Richards, daycare director, is the community representative on the school council, and was ecstatic that the full-day kindergarten hasn’t eliminated Global from their place in the school in favour of the extended day. “It’s great they’ve decided it’s not all or nothing,” she said. “The board has come up with a great comprises. We’re really thrilled it’s come to this for our families.” Global has received confirmation they would be back for the 2012-13 school year, meaning they can keep creating what they refer to as the “seamless day” for the quarter of the students that come through the daycare as part of their time at the school. Part way through the day, Richards popped by FinlayParent’s classroom, a common back and forth that goes on for the two educators, and various others at the school. “It’s always been a partnership,” Norris said. “We really are proud of the fact we call ourselves a community school.”

ID#A085801

Lucy is a beautiful spayed female lynx point Siamese and Domestic Shorthair tabby mix who is approximately six years old. She was surrendered to the shelter by her owner on March 22, and is looking for a forever family that understands her independent streak! She loves to find sunny, quiet places to rest. Lucy has a delicate and timid personality and would really love an experienced owner who can slowly help her come out of her shell. She gets along best with older teens and adults, and she would rather not be overwhelmed by loud noises, fast movements or a boisterous home.

Speedy is a spayed female Domestic Shorthair cat who is approximately six years old. She was surrendered to the Ottawa Humane Society the day before Christmas Eve, on Dec. 23, 2011. Speedy likes to sleep in bed with her human companions, and she has a very affectionate and friendly disposition. She tolerated the two Chihuahuas she lived with temporarily in her foster home, but she would probably do best in a dog-free home. Speedy needs to stay safe and sound indoors and not be let outdoors to run freely. Stop by the Adoption Centre at 245 West Hunt Club Road weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check out the OHS website at www.ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption or call 613-725-3166 ext 258.

Another factor to consider, besides your cat’s safety, is your cat’s effect on the environment and the nuisance he or she might unwittingly create for neighbours. Cat fights are noisy and offensive; unsterilized cats breed indiscriminately; their spraying and feces are pollutants; they get into garbage; ruin gardens; cause car accidents; cause damage to a car’s paint job; spread diseases; kill wildlife; and in some cases, inflict wounds on people and other animals. Is this freedom? Outdoor cats are not free. They fight a daily battle for survival against exposure to the elements, accidents, disease, poison, abuse and fights with other animals, theft or loss.

The Ottawa Humane Society recommends that you keep your feline companion on a harness or under supervision when outside. Harness training is a safe way to allow your cat to experience the pleasures of the great outdoors. Have a microchip installed in your animal as a precaution against loss. A microchip implant will provide your pet with identification that lasts a lifetime. Harness training is a safe way to allow your cat to experience the pleasures of the great outdoors.

What may be desired is not necessarily the safest... Even though cats may love to have the freedom of running around outside, so too would dogs whose freedom we strictly control. In fact, small children would relish the opportunity to roam freely all day, with little or no regard for their safety. In today’s world this freedom is just not possible. Society has established many rules for our protection. We wouldn’t think of allowing our small children to go outside alone where they are exposed to many dangers, yet many cat owners readily open the door for feline friends to go out unsupervised not knowing if they will return the same day, the next day, or ever. Are you a good neighbour?

City to penalize sub-par bus contractors

Un-registered drop boxes have to leave

Laura Mueller

Brier Dodge

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - The city is moving towards making OC Transpo contractors more accountable for their work. Thanks to a motion brought forward by Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais last year, the city’s finance and economic development committee approved new rules that enable the city to penalize private firms that don’t deliver on time or to the expected standards. “This is about accountability,” Blais said in a press release.  Companies need to be held accountable to the contracts they sign and they can’t expect the taxpayer to bail them out when they don’t perform.

The new plan includes a standardized method of evaluating the work done by contractors hired by the city when a project is outside the expertise of city staff. That way, all city departments will have consistent information about each contractor’s history with the city. But a city report notes that the changes come with a “significant” risk. Suppliers could hike prices as a means to hedge their potential increase in costs if they end up facing a penalty. The city report says the construction industry commonly faces penalties, but may also be offered a financial incentive if projects are completed early. The city’s new strategy doesn’t include the reward component.

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Coun. Tim Tierney complained to city council after a for-profit company left clothing drop-off boxes on city property in the Beacon HillCyrville ward. He said the boxes were misleading, because residents believed clothing was being donated to a charitable group such as the Salvation Army. The boxes had a sign that said Jubilee Merchandise, and read “your donation brings inspiration.” A phone number on the box had a 519 area code, which is

assigned in southwestern Ontario. There were also complaints of the same boxes from the same company operating in Kanata by Coun. Allan Hubley. At city council, Hubley and Tierney requested a bylaw change that would prevent for-profit, or non-registered charities, from putting drop off boxes on public property. “It wasn’t a rule before,” Tierney said. “Now only registered charities can put out boxes.” He said that following the bylaw change, the Jubilee Merchandise boxes were removed.

Feds pump cash into autism research Government hopes to attract international scientists Eddie Rwema

Eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news - The federal government is taking a step on the path to improving the health and well-being of children and adults living with autism. Health minister Leona Aglukkaq announced funding of up to $1 million over five years that will help fund a research chair, who will oversee research in treatment and care of autism spectrum disorders. Aglukkaq hopes the grant will attract the brightest scientists from across the world. “I would like to personally encourage researchers to apply,” Aglukkaq said as she announced the funding on March 27 at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Autism Intervention Program offices in Ottawa. “We need your creativity and your expertise.” Researchers working in Canada and those willing to relocate to a Canadian research institution are eligible for the chair. Those not currently conducting research in the field of autism must demonstrate how they would bring new approaches to the treatment or care of individuals with autism. Aglukkaq said autism is a growing health concern in Canada. “Statistics suggest that about one in 100 children will be diagnosed with a form of autism,” said Aglukkaq. “At the moment there are no firmly established guidelines for diagnosing or treating autism spectrum disorders.” The program, funded by the federal government and several partners, is aimed at helping a researcher bring innovative approaches to the treatment and care of people with autism spectrum disorder. Aglukkaq noted that children and families affected by autism face a wide range of challenges and uncertainties in their day-today lives. “The only way to address these challenges is through a greater understanding of autism,” she said. “In particular we need more research to identify effective treatment and explore the best options for care and support.” Since 2000, the federal government has invested approximately $40 million in autism related research, according to the minister. “The research chair will help translate research into better treatments and improve standards of care for children and adults living with these disorders,” said Aglukkaq. Edmonton-Mill WoodsBeaumont MP Mike Lake,

whose 16-year-old son is autistic, spoke first-hand about the challenges families with children with autism go through and how the funding is important to these families. Lake is optimistic the funding will focus on research enabling autistic children to grow and function as adults. “It is very critical for us to have research that teaches us new ways to communicate with a non-verbal autistic kids,” said Lake. He said children with autism have a very difficult time dealing with abstract – things like feeling. “My son is very able to tell us when he wants a cookie, but it’s very difficult for him to tell us when he is feeling unwell or not happy in some way,” he said. Martin Osmond, chief executive of the CHEO Research Institute, said the funding was timely. “Today is indeed an impor-

tant day for autism research,” As a practicing pediatrician, Osmond said he has seen many children over the years diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and that he knows the great needs that exist in communities to have treatment interventions that have proven to be effective. “I know that it is only through the carefully development and rigorous evaluation of treatments that we can be sure that our children are getting the most effective care, and that is why I am so excited about today’s announcement,” said Osmond.

Your Children’s Aid To Call or Not to Call? This is a time of fiscal restraint, not only for the government or publicly funded agencies such as the CAS, but also for families. In Ottawa and across Ontario, families are having to make choices, some harder than others, but all requiring decision making regarding where and how to spend their hard earned money. This, along with a clutter of organizations who fundraise and tap into the same pool of

200,000 will come from the Ottawa-Montreal area. Boxes have been set up across the city at all Local Heroes restaurant locations, six Dymon Self Storage locations and at city hall. At Local Heroes on Bank Street near Heron Road, Robichaud said the charity accepts all kinds of shoes, from sturdy runners to high heels. “We like to say that people in Haiti need to dress up. So the pumps work, too,” Robichaud laughed. He encouraged all Ottawa residents to do a little spring cleaning and get rid of shoes they no longer wear. Throughout April the shoes will be collected and sorted, and then Robichaud will invite local charities to “cherry pick” the shoes they need for their clients. He expects they will take about 10 per cent of the stock. Another 14,000 will be given to Ottawa charity Sole Responsibility to send 7,000 pairs to Somali refugees in Yemen and 7,000 to Kenya. The rest of the shoes will be shipped to a central warehouse in Nevada where they will be distributed across the globe. Since 2004, the U.S. version of the charity has distributed 17 million pairs of shoes and supported countries through dozens of natural disasters, including the Haiti earthquake, the Japan earthquake and last year’s tornados in the US. Robichaud began collecting shoes for Soles 4 Souls in Kelowna, B.C. in 2010 as a way to give a local shoe business some exposure in the community. But as the shoes kept coming in, he and business partner Jim Belshaw

realized they had something much bigger on their hands. “I think why people have really jumped behind this has to do with the fact that we don’t ask for any money. We just ask you to do a little spring cleaning, clean out your closet and bring in your shoes,” Robichaud said. Robichaud pulled in a number of local businesses to get Ottawa’s campaign off the ground this April, including Steve Creighton, vice president of Dymon Self Storage. Creighton said he was “delighted” to support the cam-

paign by providing drop-off locations and storage for the shoes, as well as a sorting facility at the end of the month. “It’s very easy for us in Canada and particularly in Ottawa to take wearing shoes for granted. Around the world of course many, many people, adults and children, just don’t have that luxury,” he said. “We hope our facilities are just stuffed to the limits by the end of the program.” Mayor Jim Watson and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume declared April Soles 4 Souls month in Ottawa. For full drop-off details or more information about Soles 4 Souls Canada, visit www. soles4soulscanada.com.

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let #1 activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President

We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:< Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON <My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA<I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON<Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.<For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC<Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.

Heartburn Reflux

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, noodles, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box. < Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC < Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA< Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am #39 also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL < Suffered with reflux, choking and coughing. After starting Bell #39 I feel great. Amazed about the complete relief. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Katarina Tusa, 63, North York, ON <Was sleeping sitting up to avoid reflux. I thought I had this health problem for life like my other family members. Bell #39 brought quick relief. Can sleep now normally, have more energy, feel great. Bell products are quite different. Virginia Grant, 67, Markham, ON Proof that it really works!

SNORING?

SLEEP APNEA?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D.

Often snorers also have sleep apnea which

causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (per FDA website). Millions suffer needlessly and can stop their nightly ordeals. To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH < Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS < For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my #23 life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS <It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON. < Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing.

CONTROL WEIGHT = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD. Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance.<Working in a health food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton #40 Beach, FL < My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When retested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON < I finally found the right approach to losing weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON <I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my selfesteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN < Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.
