Residents divided over letting dogs loose in Voyaeur Park Brier Dodge

The final instalment of a three-part series on palliative care in Ottawa. – Pages 10 to 11


Ottawa hosts walk in support of the Kidney Foundation. – Page 16


News - Residents around Voyageur Park are divided on whether dogs should be allowed off-leash in the Orléans park. Things were heated when residents debated the issue at a breakout session during a community association meeting on Sept. 23.  Originally, a fence was going to be installed in the Voyageur Drive park as the solution, but a special surface would need to go in at a cost of $100,000, said the Convent Glen Orléans Wood Community Association director in charge of parks, Ronalee Carey.  So then the issue moved to a decision of on-leash or offleash, through a consultation process that will be run by the city’s bylaw department. “The main concern was that some dogs were being permitted in the sand around the play structure and there had been some injuries due to collisions between dogs and cyclists,” Carey said. 

But other nearby residents use the park daily to walk their dogs, and say it isn’t fair to punish the dog owners in the area for the actions of a few bad apples.  “The problem with this park is they expect it to be multiuse, and it’s incompatible,” Carey said.  At the community association meeting, several dog owners suggested a compromise, like restricting dogs during certain times of the day in summer months, or making part of the park on-leash only. Residents have created a group on Facebook to support keeping the park as is, but other residents have signed a petition that was delivered to the city’s bylaw department. Right now, the bylaw department is putting up signs in the park to ask residents to provide feedback. Residents will have four weeks to send comments for or against the off-leash park. The decision will then be made based on the majority vote.  See COMMUNITY, page 2

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

for a list of capital priorities. The list is comprised of projects selected by staff in May 2012 that had yet to receive funding. The list is comprised of projects Barrhaven trustee Donna Blackburn proposed an

amendment that would see a new Half Moon Bay elementary school nab the top spot over a new school in the Avalon subdivision of Orléans. The change was voted down by the majority of the board. “I realize there wasn’t much

appetite to change the list,” Blackburn said, adding that she didn’t think enough work had been done to try and accommodate the extra Orléans students in other schools. See TRUSTEE, page 7

Community seeks compromise for off-leash park debate Continued from page 1

“It only provides a winlose solution,” Carey said at the community association meeting. “One side is going to win; one is going to lose. We only look at alternatives if it’s 50/50.” She was concerned that it would put a divide in the community, instead of exploring a compromise.  If the decision is split, or the councillor disagrees with the outcome, the matter can be elevated to a decision by a city committee. However, Carey said this has never been done, and the bylaw

department has always gone with one of the two options presented.  “At the end of the day, I can bring it back to committee if I’m not happy with the report, but I don’t want to prejudge (before the bylaw report is done),” said Orléans Coun. Bob Monette.  If residents want a compromise solution, he encouraged them to write it on the feedback form once it’s made available. He said he’d like to see both dog owners and other park users happy with the final decision.  When the community association presented the op-

tions to the 14 people present at the dog park breakout session – including potential compromises – only one person voted to see the entire park made on-leash, however Carey said several residents in favour of an on-leash park weren’t in attendance.  There is also some confusion over Roslyn Park, which has two sets of signs, one indicating it’s on-leash, the other that it’s off-leash.  Carey followed up with the bylaw department after the community association meeting and said the next step is waiting to see the outcome of the bylaw evaluation. 

“Until the signs are up and the comment process happens, that’s the only time they would look at alternatives proposed, so they’re not even there yet,” said Carey.  She said she understands

why the process is done that way for efficiency, but it is set up in a way that is likely to divide the community.  “I know (Carey) has heard there is no wiggle room, but we can try,” said association

president Ian Gadbois. “We can try moving forward and saying we’ve talked to the community, and I think this is going to make sense. (But) we probably won’t be successful.”

Mission gives thanks to Orléans community garden Michelle Nash

News – Gardeners in Orléans having been giving back to the community in truck-loads, for which the Ottawa Mission couldn’t be happier. This past growing season was the second year in a row the Orléans Community Garden donated surplus food to the downtown homeless shelter, delivering a weekly batch of fresh produce. President of the garden, Gina LaPointe would collect, wash and prepare the 150 pounds of fruits and vegetables every Monday night and take them to the Ottawa Mission’s kitchen the next morning. “Every time I would come, I would see smiles,” LaPointe said. The Ottawa Mission formally thanked the community garden on Sept. 26. “People like Gina, like those in this community, are amazing,” said the mission’s chef, Ric Watson. Over the past three months the community garden has so far donated 1,200 pounds of food – and counting.

to just use right away,” Watson said. The mission said none of the food donated goes to waste and the clients even help LaPointe bring in the food. “Every cook and volunteer looks forward to the delivery,” Watson said. “It has made a huge impact on what we serve at the mission.” The Ottawa Mission serves 1,250 meals a day, and the fresh produce given by the community garden has helped reduce the costs for the nonprofit organization.

Ottawa Mission’s chef, Ric Watson, Gina LaPointe and Orléans Coun. Bob Monette celebrates another successful year of donations from the Orléans Community Garden to the Ottawa Mission.

LaPointe said close to 50 per cent of the gardeners donate to the mission, as part of a seed for seed program for which LaPointe signed up the community garden. In the past, the garden had dedicated plots to give to the local food bank, however with the level of volunteers lacking, this program just made more sense. “This works better because everyone is already taking care of their own plots,” LaPointe said. “People donate their surplus.” The garden has been operating at the corner of St. Joseph Boulevard and Tenth Line for the past seven years. There are 60 plots and 48 families who tend to them. LaPointe said was a natural decision to give to the Ottawa Mission. “It’s an easy way of giving back,” she said. “I do it because I like doing community service.” Watson said he did not realize just how much community service LaPointe offers when it comes to the food. “All the produce comes cleaned, and it makes it easy

Zombies encourage students to pick up sport of running Event promotes cross-country sport Michelle Nash

News - Students from Henry Monro Public School ran for their lives as zombies -- students from Gloucester High School -- chased them during a unique event aimed at promoting running. The event brought children from grades 6, 7 and 8 to the high school on Oct. 3 to participate in the Zombie Run. The event featured a two-kilometre obstacle course race, daring students to race to the finish line with their “lives” intact. Gloucester’s cross country coach Jason Sinkus decided to host the event in an effort to promote the sport. “What better way to enjoy running, when you are running

for your lives?” Sinkus said. The “zombies” were all members of the Gloucester cross country team who chased, grabbed and groaned at the students, attempting to turn the student into a zombie by grabbing a flag along their waists. When Sinkus suggested the idea to his team, they all jumped at the chance and after looking at similar zombie run events, decided to build the course based on what they could find in the physical education department. “They really let their creative juices flow, and I think it turned out really well,” he said. The team played the part well, dressing up in torn clothing, stumbling and growling with blank stares. Sinkus said

the Orléans shop Halloween Alley helped out by getting the students zombie-ready. Sinkus said he was impressed with how the younger students worked together to get pass the zombies. “What I think a lot of people don’t realize is that cross country is a team sport, today, these kids are working as a team, this brings them together,” Sinkus said. Sinkus said he sent the Michelle Nash/Metroland word out to the local public Blake Nolan runs for his life at the first Gloucester High School Zombie Run on Oct. 3. schools, hoping to garner in- Nolan and his classmates from Henry Monro Public School participated in the unique terest in running early on in cross country event aimed at promoting running. the students.

Know when to call police, says community officer Brier Dodge

“I want a bank that makes business banking simple.” We hear you. We have the solutions to meet your business needs. Choosing the right small business solution shouldn’t be complicated. So whether you need an account with a basic low cost service plan, an account with an unlimited business plan, or something in between, we have you covered. Talk to one of our Business Banking Specialists for advice.

Community - Theft from a vehicle is reason to call police. Your neighbour across the street giving you a funny look isn’t. Every day, the Orléans community police station sees real crimes go unreported, and small disputes that fall to bylaw or aren’t a legal issue, take up officers’ time, said community police officer Caroline Tessier. Those small disputes have included a neighbour giving someone a funny look from across the street. An ongoing problem in Orléans is theft from vehicles overnight, Tessier said. Most calls are dealt with over the phone and a report is lodged without officers making a trip to the caller’s residence, unless the person sees a crime in progress. But calls do add up help

and police determine projects or areas to monitor, so tracking if a street has had one or 15 thefts makes a difference in how resources are used, Tessier said. “Even if it’s just a few dollars (in losses), they should call it in so we can establish a pattern,” she said. “We may send officers later at night, but not necessarily when they call.” She said they will respond immediately if there is a crime in progress, a crime of a serious nature or if the criminal is visible and can still be caught. While 911 is the number to call for a serious crime in progress, residents can also call 613-236-1222, ext. 7300, for non-emergencies. That line is monitored 24/7 and reaches the police. POLICE LINE ABUSED

While more calls for real crimes need to be reported,

Tessier said the community is abusing the police line by calling for non-emergencies and non-police matters, which can then end up taking hours of resources that would be better applied to real crimes. “Neighbour disputes like fencing are not a police matter,” she said. “(Neither are) the everyday things, like people parking on the street.” Often the police end up receiving calls for issues that residents are capable of sorting out independently. But by the time a call – or several – have been returned, non-police matters can eat up a big chunk of an officer’s day. Tessier said she’s yet to see a dispute between neighbours reported to the police that warranted police action, but those kinds of calls become very time-consuming. Bylaw officers can be reached by calling the city’s general 311 line.

Trustee pushes to place Avalon fifth on school priorities list Continued from page 1

“I think we should treat every community fairly,” said Blackburn. Blackburn’s amended list would have pushed an Avalon II school down to the fifth spot on the eight-item list, behind a new Half Moon Bay School, a rebuild for Broadview Public School, an addition to West Carleton Secondary School and an addition to A.Y. Jackson Secondary School. Mark Fisher, a trustee whose area includes south Ottawa, said there’s little appetite for another look at the list. “This process is necessarily divisive,” he said, adding he’s looking forward to a new multiyear, capital priority planning process. The list the board approved puts Avalon in the top spot, with a new elementary school in Barrhaven coming in second. Ryan Knuth, the director of public relations for the Half Moon Bay Community Association, told the board that the community already boasts 3,263 homes and with planned developments would soon be double that. “Parent engagement and volunteering are much more likely if there is a community school,” he said. “We are a great community and with a public school we would thrive.” Chapman Mills Public School was opened in September to handle students from Farley Mowat and Barrhaven public schools. The board did an accommodation review in 2011 and redistributed students to ease crowding. At the time

Farley Mowat and Barrhaven public had 17 and 19 portables respectively. At a public meeting to explain the boundary changes to five local schools, Blackburn said new schools were essential. “We need the school in Chapman Mills, we need one in Half Moon Bay,” she said. The changes in boundaries saw boundaries would see 340 students redirected from Farley Mowat and 150 students from Barrhaven Public. “Every last option was looked at in Barrhaven, I just want to do the same for Orléans,” Blackburn said. Jennifer McKenzie, an Ottawa west trustee and board chair, said although there are growth pressures in the Avalon area, the overall enrollment in the Orléans area has declined by 300 students since 2009. Barrhaven’s student count has gone up by 772 during the same time period. “We could build a school every other year in Barrhaven and not keep up with demand,” she said. Orléans trustee John Shea said that Orleans boasts a population of more than 100,000 people and while there’s declining population on the north side of highway 174, there is a lot of growth to the south. “It’s quicker to drive to the city limits of Ottawa than to drive to the next closest school that has space,” he said. Peters agreed and said the widening of Trim Road to four lanes will only foster more development. Blackburn said Henry Lars-

en Public School on Sunview Drive was 100 students under capacity, but the board’s manager of planning Karen Carty Ostafichuk said it was more complicated than a simple shift of students. “With the class size cap on primary grades and the pressures of full-day kindergarten it may not work,” Ostafichuk said. The distance between the schools is five kilometres. Peters said while he recognizes that Barrhaven and Kanata are high growth areas, he has to come out and advocate for his community. “Unfortunately because of limited funding dollars it pits one part of the city against another,” he said. The board’s capital priorities list will be voted on at the next board meeting on Oct. 22. It will go to the Ministry of Education before the end of the month. The list

• New Avalon II elementary school at a cost of $13.65 million • New Half Moon Bay elementary school at a cost of $13.65 million • Broadview Avenue Public School rebuild $17.8 million • West Carleton Secondary School addition $6.4 million • New Findlay Creek Elementary School $13.65 million • New Stittsville Secondary School $36.1 million • A.Y.

Let’s talk about death


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

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


Things that go beep in the night


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

Maybe they just make little beeps like the ones I was hearing. Trying then to get back to sleep, I pondered not only the neediness but the stupidity, and perhaps even perversity of our electronic devices. Long before the first cellphone was invented, Woody Allen had a stand-up routine about his war with the machines he owned. The toaster burned the toast. The clock ran counter-clockwise.

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

were really so smart, they’d know when people are sleeping. The fault is ours, of course. We, the technology-obsessed people of the world, taught machines to make noises, to send error messages, to demand upgrades. And if we don’t obey, they make our lives miserable. Which forces us to buy newer machines. The only possible solution is to turn them off whenever possible. You know they don’t like that because they’re always asking us to confirm that we want to do it. And there may well be a punishment down the road. But at least it stops the beeping for awhile.

Loose dog hurts senior


Different dyslexia approaches worth exploring To the editor:

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

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

have the same success. Davis programs are designed to be continued in a home setting where a support person can work one-on -one with the child. Trying to implement the home program in a busy classroom setting with the demands on teacher’s time and a student’s attention would be challenging to say the least. Looking beyond one parent’s experience, your readers should realize that there are thousands of clients who describe their experience with Davis as pivotal, providing them with tools and techniques to master symbols and words that previously had been a barrier to their learning. In the article on support services, the vice-principal of Heritage Academy is reported to say, “only specific methods – provided by Heritage and another private school called Mindware Academy – are useful in teaching dyslexics to learn to read.”

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

To the editor,

There is not enough monitoring of dogs on the loose in parks. Tuesday Aug. 20, I and another senior (84) were sitting on a park bench in Luc Major Park on Bilberry. I saw a dog owner farther away picking up the dog’s ball but as I turned my face to the front I saw his dog – a mixed breed, black and brown – racing at top speed toward us. The dog, possible name of Rocco, between 50 and 60 pounds, slammed into me, slamming me against the back of the bench as I tried to get away. The owner came over and apologized but refused to give me his name and laughed at me when I said I would call the police. The owner of the dog walked away. My friend and I left. I limped towards our parking lot and called the paramedics.

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See video of one volunteer’s story: /ottawaregion-video/

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

Safe injection sites have no place in Ottawa: Coun. Monette To the editor:

Recently, I have read and seen articles that some groups aspire to convince the federal government to allow safe injection sites in the City of Ottawa. When I first came on council, one of the issues that I dealt with in partnership with Couns. Shad Qadri and Eli El-Chantiry was the proliferation of needles, crack pipes and drug paraphernalia that was littering our downtown

streets. Working closely with Chris Grinham from Safer Ottawa we were able to clean up the downtown core of this issue. Now we hear all of the socalled positives enabling drug users to use these drugs. As a city councillor, I am vehemently opposed to safe injection sites as are Mayor Jim Watson and police Chief Charles Bordeleau. Over and over again, we have stated that prevention, education

and treatment centres are the key. Making it easier for drug users to use these products is not the solution but only exacerbates the problem. This increases our potential of becoming a known entity where you can easily use drugs. This is not the Ottawa that I believe in. Accessible treatment is the Ottawa that I believe in. Orléans Coun. Bob Monette

Girl assaulted near park-and-ride Police seek hit and run suspect News - A 14-year-old girl was assaulted near the park-and-ride station on Champlain Street on Sept. 24 at 3:40 p.m. The girl was walking through the woods nearby when a man knocked her to the ground, sat on top of her and began hitting her, police say.

She started screaming and a pedestrian at the park-andride heard, and walked closer. That person approaching scared the suspect away, and he was last seen running through the woods. He’s described as having light brown skin, brown hair, stand-

ing about 6-feet-2 tall, skinny but muscular and possiby between 30 and 35 years old. The Ottawa police east district is looking for public assistance. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Cameron Grahan at 613-236-1222, ext. 3566.

Brier Dodge

News - Police are looking for a possible suspect vehicle that was involved in the fatal hit and run on Frank Kenny Road on Aug. 11. Police said it’s possible the

vehicle involved is a GM vehicle with dark red or burgundy paint from 1997 to 1998 or 2003 to 2010. Since the hit and run, the vehicle may have been repaired by a garage or body shop. “There are several possibilities that we are still investigating, which include that the

involved driver may be unaware that a person was struck,” said lead investigator Const. Lianne McAughey in a press release. The accident killed a 30-yearold man, Michael Morlang. Police are asking anyone with tips to contact McAughey at 613-236-1222, ext. 2481.

United Way campaign aims to change 76,000 lives

home is

To the editor:

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

wherever you make memories to treasure.

BOOK YOUR TOUR TODAY. Lunch is on us!

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

Making sauerkraut was a family tradition MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories with no lid. In the bottom of the box was a sharp blade that Father said could be deadly if you accidentally ran your hand over it. The well-scrubbed barrel had been rolled into the kitchen right after supper and it sat close to the table at one end. Straddling the barrel was the wood box with the deadly blade which also, of course, had been scrubbed within an inch of its life. Now it was time to bring in the cabbages from the summer kitchen. Not all at once – they were kept out as long as possible, so that when they were finally shredded they would still be well chilled from being outside of the steaming hot kitchen. That’s when I figured into the picture. It was my job to bring in the cabbages when Father said he was ready for another one. This meant I was constantly running back and forth – inside, outside. But back in those days, a young daughter did exactly what she was told. There was no negotiating with a brother or sister to change jobs. It was Emerson and Everett’s job to peel off the very top leaves of each head of cabbage. Beside the table were two huge baskets into which went the outer leafs. They wouldn’t be tossed out in the back yard, where garbage was kept. No, these baskets of leaves would go to feed the pigs. This is where my youngest brother Earl came into the picture. It was his job to tear down the discarded cabbage into smaller pieces. That way, Father said, it was easier

to make the feed go farther when it was finally tossed out to the pigs, mixed with other slop. Audrey sliced off the very end of the cabbage with a sharp butcher knife, and that too was tossed into the baskets by the table. Then that head was passed on to Father. Father fed the head of cabbage into the wood box straddling the barrel, running it back and forth over the sharp blade, letting the finely shredded cabbage fall into the barrel. Mother used a block of wood attached to a short pole and every so often Father stopped shedding as she gently packed down the cabbage. Everything would come to a halt and with a measuring cup dipped into the bag of coarse salt, Mother would spread in a good amount. For some reason I was never able to fathom, the number of shredded cabbages was always enough to exactly fill the barrel. The very top of the shredded cabbage got the final toss of coarse salt, then a wellscrubbed stone – the same one we used every year – was the last addition to the barrel. The stone would make sure the cabbage was well packeddown. It took Father and three brothers to roll the barrel out to the summer kitchen. Of course the sauerkraut would

the barrel. The amount was considerably less, I thought, than what had been put in that night in our kitchen. For days afterwards, I would sneak a peek into the barrel and would be met with the sharp tang of the ferment-

not be ready to eat until it had been well fermented and was always best when the blasts of winter froze it solid. By then, which is something else I had trouble figuring out, the cabbage turned to sauerkraut and had settled down into

ing cabbage. I would have a feeling of contentment come over me, because now I knew, deep in that awful Depression, it didn’t matter how bad things got, we would at least have sauerkraut to put on the table.

he big wood barrel had been scrubbed with hot soapy water and a brush and put outside on the back stoop to dry in the sun. It would take days for it to be as dry as a bone and if the sky looked like a drop of rain might come down, the barrel was rolled into the summer kitchen until the threat was over. Dozens of big fat cabbages were already in the summer kitchen on a table Father had put together by putting three wide planks on two saw-horses. A new bag of coarse salt had been bought at Briscoe’s General Store. We were ready. This would be a Saturday night when there would be no going off to a house party or having neighbours in for a game of cards. This night would be reserved for making sauerkraut and the whole family would be doing the job. I had mixed feelings about the night we made the sauerkraut. Certainly the whole family was working together brought me special joy, but being the youngest of the five children my job was menial at best. All I was allowed to do was bring in more cabbages from the summer kitchen as they were needed. The old pine table had been stripped of its well-worn red and white oilcloth and the wood scrubbed clean by my sister Audrey. All the chairs and benches had been moved back to the wall – there would be no sitting that night. Hands had been scrubbed with a brush and hot soapy water and both Father and Mother wore long white aprons for the job. When the work-night started, on the table close to one end was the cabbage slicer. Father said it had been made by his great-great grandfather when he settled in Northcote generations ago. It looked like a long narrow wood box

Annual kidney walk raises awareness Jennifer McIntosh

News - Orléans resident Kassie Stephan has been dealing with kidney issues since she was a toddler. She was diagnosed with cystinosis, a rare genetic metabolic disease, when she was three years old. While she became well acquainted with the nephrosis team at CHEO, Stephan said she led a relatively normal life until she was 13. To help her failing kidneys, the teen was on dialysis three times a week for six hours at a time. Near the time she had her transplant, time on dialysis increased to 16 hours a day. “I was only off dialysis to go to school,” she said. It was Sept. 17, 2008 when her pager went off, indicating that there was a kidney available. “I started to dream off a normal life,” Stephan said. The transplant was done two days later, but by July those dreams quickly faded. “I was in full rejection by then,” Stephan said, adding she has been Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland waiting on the transplant list for four Anik, Christian and baby Damien Charbonneau turned up at the years. Her mother, Connie Alguire, could annual Kidney Walk fundraiser on Sept. 29 in support of friend Anthony Parsons, an organ recipient who recently competed in an iron be a match but wasn’t healthy enough to undergo the procedure. As a result, man competition.

Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland

Kassie Stephan, an Orleans teen who has undergone a kidney transplant and subsequent rejection, told her story at the kickoff of the annual Kidney Walk on Sept. 29. she has undergone a gastric bypass and lost 80 pounds in the last year. “Maybe my dream of a normal life is that much closer,” Stephan said. Stephan’s speech kicked off the annual Kidney Wallk on Sept. 29, which boasted 150 people hoping to raise awareness about kidney disease and raise funds for the Kidney Foun-

dation of Ottawa. Bruce Hill, a manger with the Kidney Foundation, said Stephan’s story wasn’t unusual for those that suffer from kidney disease. The foundation has raised more than 100 million for research since its inception in 1964. Hill said the annual walk is one of the biggest fundraisers for the foundation, which also offers support for dialysis patients through peer groups and counselling. “There are five stages of kidney disease but most people don’t know about it until their kidneys are failing,” Hill said. Hill added most dialysis patients are living in poverty-like conditions. “If you have to go get dialysis three times a week for a few hours at a time it’s tough to hold down a job,” he said. The charity raised more than $700,000 from this year’s walk. Bradley Ralph, 14 and Matthew Bates, 11, from Vernon were firsttime walkers. “We are excited to participate,” Bradley said. According to the foundation, there are currently 10,000 Ontarians living with some form of kidney disease. For more information, visit www.

OYP Theatre students to share Sound of Music Role ‘Big break’ for 11-year-olds Brier Dodge

Arts - Two OYP Theatre students will share the role of Marta Von Trapp in the NAC’s Sound of Music show in December. Eleven-year-olds Petra Ginther and Madison Bellini are both members of the Orléans theatre school based out of the Shenkman Arts Centre. They auditioned in the spring, and found out they will split the role of the young Von Trapp daughter. Because there are so many shows – sometimes two a day – the role would be too much for one child to handle. “I did jetés (jumps) all through my yard and then I called all my friends” Madison said about when she got the news she had been cast. “And if they didn’t answer, I called them back again.” There are also two Ottawa youth splitting the role of Gretl, the youngest Von Trapp sibling. Starting Nov. 11, Petra and Madison will be busy with rehearsals six days a week to get ready for the performances. The show will run from Dec. 3 to 28, giving the girls a chance to experience the life of professional actors. Both have to figure out how

to balance school work while being on set. “We’re going to be really, really busy trying to learn all the subjects at school and learning all the lines for the show,” said Petra, who attends Henry Munro Middle School. “But my parents say, ‘Petra! Your grades can’t go down. School comes first.’” She plans to bring her books on set with her, and work on assignments when she’s not needed for scenes. Madison said she won’t get much slack from her teacher at Chapel Hill Catholic School. “I’m scared about getting my homework done,” she said. She’ll also have to miss her church’s youth group for a little bit, while show rehearsal takes priority. But it’ll all be worth it, the pair agree. They’re both excited to have friends and family come and see them on the NAC’s stage, and be real, professional actors. “I’m just excited to be on that big stage,” Petra said. They both want to continue to act, staying with the OYP Theatre School and returning to local productions when the Sound of Music ends. Brier Dodge/Metroland “I only started last year, so I’ve Petra Ginther, 11, a student at Henry Munro Middle School, and Madison Bellini, 11, a student at Chapel Hill only been in one or two little plays,” Catholic School, pose outside the OYP Theatre School at the Shenkman Arts Centre. Petra and Madison will said Petra. “This is my big break.” be sharing the role of Marta Von Trapp in December’s Sound of Music production at the NAC.

Community - When the sound of the baby grand piano drifts down the halls at Portobello Manor, the residents gravitate towards the music. Mrs. Lunney is playing. “She’s always playing,” said Elisabeth Hohsdorf, as she swayed back and forth to the music. “She’s our number one entertainment, and I’m sure I can speak for everyone when I say she’s the most wonderful person I’ve ever met.” Hohsdorf, a resident at Portobello, said if her late husband was there, they’d be up dancing every waltz. She closed her eyes and smiled, moving her hands to the familiar tune. Yvonne Lunney, who turns 78 next month, was one of the first Portobello Manor residents to move in when it opened five years ago. She’s been playing the pianos regularly ever she moved in. “I think it takes (the other residents) back to their youth,” Lunney said. “It brings a lot of memories.” Another resident stopped to recall her own father playing the same tune when she was a little girl. Lunney studied music at the University of Toronto, and played with the Toronto Symphony. She doesn’t need any sheet music to play – the songs committed to her memory over the years. She moved to Orléans nine years ago, and met her husband, a monseigneur, in church. His dream was to sing O Holy Night, so she gave him voice lessons, and on a Christmas Day, with her accompanying him, he sang. “He would sing in church and I would play the organ – that’s how we got together,” she said. Her late husband also lived at Portobello Manor, where Lunney has started a choir of residents, staff and family members.

Yvonne Lunney, 77, plays the piano for a crowd at Portobello Manor. Lunney is the regular entertainment for the other residents of the home, many of whom have fond memories associated with the songs Lunney plays. “The choir is absolutely wonderful,” said Veronique Landry, the home’s general manager. “She brings a lot of joy to the manor.” Landry said that Lunney’s music encourages the residents to be more social, coming out of

Politicians celebrate seniors’ day at Portobello Manor Brier Dodge

News - Local seniors celebrated National Seniors Day on Oct. 1 with a visit from Minister of National Revenue Kerry-Lynne Findlay and Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau. The politicians visited residents at Portobello Manor on Valin Street in Orléans. Galipeau, a senior himself, got a round of applause when he announced that he is officially cancer free. He had a patch of skin removed off his head about a year ago, and has had follow-up testing. Findlay spoke to the seniors, adding that her own mother had lived in a similar residence until she was 93years-old. “Give yourselves a big hand; you’ve lasted this long,” she said. “You have helped to shape the way things are today ... so you deserve our gratitude and recognition.” The politicians then talked about different tax programs in place for seniors. “We’re happy with all the tax relief measures we’ve in-

troduced to help seniors keep more of their hard-earned money,” Galipeau said. The programs included increasing the age limit for RRSP contributions from 67 to 71 and allowing for tax splitting, and costs like renovations for medical reasons now qualify for the medical expense tax credit. “It may never be enough but we’re moving in the right direction,” Findlay said. Afterwards, residents celebrated National Seniors Day, which they do annually at the manor, with cake and music. “All seniors deserve our thanks, not just on seniors day,” Findlay said.

Ottawa-Orléans MP Royal Galipeau greets seniors at the Portobello Manor on Oct. 1 to celebrate National Seniors Day.

Funeral co-op opens in Ottawa Michelle Nash


News - People living in the Ottawa now have an affordable funeral option thanks to the region’s first funeral co-operative. The doors officially opened for the Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa on Oct. 2. The co-op, located across from Beechwood Cemetery, on St. Laurent Boulevard is offering its members and the public the opportunity to hold a funeral at low cost. “It’s not geared to make a profit, but to pass savings along to mem-

bers,” said the co-op’s president, Mark Goldblatt. He said the idea has been in the making for the past four years and he is happy that this day has finally come. “We hope the community will respond, members are ultimately in charge,” Goldblatt said. The co-op already has 550 members – people who signed on before there was a viable business plan, which the president said, was not an easy task. “They signed on basically because they felt, like us, it was a good idea,”

Goldblatt said. “They believed in what we were doing.” Membership costs a one-time fee of $20 and offers a 10 per cent discount on any of the services. The co-operative is also open to the public, offering funeral services at cost, meaning people looking for an affordable funeral could get something like a casket for as little as $50. That’s a far cry from the $6,000 board member Beverlee McIntosh said she paid when her husband died last year. “I wish there was this service for me. I felt alienated by the whole process when my husband passed,” she said. “I felt more like if they could sell more to me, the better.” McIntosh said she is happy to know that other grieving families now have another option. “It’s a time when you are just saying to yourself, ‘let’s get through this,’” McIntosh said. “At other funeral homes, they are trying to make a profit. Here you have a compassionate funeral director and you know it’s not based on profit. The family has control.” McIntosh said she feels this co-operative is bringing the funeral service back to a community level. Making it about a celebration of the family, not about feeling guilty for what the price of an urn is.

Michelle Nash/Metroland

Mark Goldblatt, president of the Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa and board member Beverlee McIntosh opens the funeral co-op’s doors on Oct. 2. The new co-operative offers members and the public at-cost funeral services. “For my husband, I picked what I thought was the most beautiful urn and I was told it was the cheapest one,” she said. “It made me feel guilty, like I wasn’t doing what’s best for my husband. I am happy here that is not the case.” The funeral director, McIntosh explained, will be paid by salary, not commission and the co-operative will offer a full range of services, from reduced costs of cremation, memorial gatherings at the Unitarian church, obituaries and online tributes as well as tools for estate settlement. Services will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in both English and French.

Funding to start up this co-operative cost the organization $455,000 and was acquired through various funding arenas, including other Canadian co-operatives and private donations and grants. According to the co-operative, such organizations have been in operation in Canada since the 1950s, with the first one being founded in Sudbury, Ont., in 1952. In Quebec and Prince Edward Island, the concept of a funeral cooperative is well established, with La Cooperative funeraire de l’Outaouais having 12,500 members and handles about 70 per cent of all funerals in the Outaouais region.

Cancer Foundation celebrates $50M campaign Community - It’s one of the biggest local campaigns focused on cancer care – and the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is celebrating the successful close of the $50million Courage Campaign. “This is a tremendous milestone for the Cancer Foundation,” says Peter Charbonneau, Courage Campaign co-chair and cancer survivor. “This Cancer Foundation is the driving force for cancer survivorship in our community, and thanks to their vision and leadership local cancer patients have access to some of the best treatment and care in the country.” The campaign engaged the community to raise funds to support the most important and urgent cancer needs in our community. Donors surpassed the $50

million goal by contributing just over $54 million over the past nine years to local cancer priorities. And every single dollar raised stays right here in our community to help our family, friends and neighbours, should they ever hear those three terrible words: “You have cancer.” The first phase of the campaign was led by Rabbi Reuven Bulka with second phase co-chaired by Fred Seller and Charbonneau. All three were on hand at the celebration and shared their personal stories about what motivated them to devote years of their lives to raise funds for our community through the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. For Charbonneau, the Courage Campaign was a

passion.  It was one that started more than a decade ago after being diagnosed with colorectal cancer that had spread to his liver. The prognosis was not positive. His physician at the time, Dr. Hartley Stern, who was leading the Regional Cancer Centre, asked Charbonneau to help raise money for important cancer projects through the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Charbonneau replied: “Keep me alive, and I’ll keep fundraising for cancer.” and proudly adds, “It’s 10 years later, I had to fight off cancer three times but I’m still here and I am cancer free. And, I’m still raising funds for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Founda-

tion. I always will.” Funds raised through the Courage Campaign are invested in key projects including those which provide care closer to home; shorter wait times for diagnosis and treatment; overall quality of life and access to research and new therapies. campaign

Under the campaign, the Cancer Foundation and its donors became the largest individual philanthropic contributor to the new Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre with a grant of $5 million.  This expansion has allowed for approx. 1,300 more patients visits every year.  An additional $7 million was pledged to the new Irving Greenberg Family

Cancer Centre at the Queensway Carleton Hospital to ensure that 3,000 additional cancer patients can receive treatment in our community closer to home. The Cancer Foundation has been a long-standing supporter of cancer clinical trials and state-of-theart equipment like the CyberKnife and the daVinci robot – allocating million of dollars to these projects. And because of their support more than 2,200 people are taking part in cancer clinical trials and nearly 1,500 people have been treated on the CyberKnife and daVinci robot.

Canadian Red Cross launches annual poinsettia campaign Community - The Canadian Red Cross has launched its 11th annual poinsettia campaign, which runs until Nov. 14. During the campaign, Ottawa businesses can support the community by purchasing Red Cross poinsettia plants to decorate their offices for the holiday season. Businesses can also order poinsettias as gifts for staff, suppliers or customers through the employee-client gift program. With an order of more than 20 plants, personalized, co-branded tags are included with each poinsettia. The plants will be delivered by Red Cross volunteers from Nov. 26 to 30 to offices across the city. The funds raised by the campaign will support Red Cross programs and services in Ottawa, such as:

• Emergency support like food, shelter and clothing during disasters – from a fire in a single family home, to a storm that has affected the entire region. • Ottawa branch volunteers also respond to national and international disasters, such as the flooding in Alberta this past summer. • RespectEd violence and abuse prevention programs, delivered at the invitation of schools and community organizations. • Health equipment loans including wheelchairs, crutches and walkers to people recovering from injury, illness or surgery. • First aid services for community events, as well as first aid courses available to individuals and groups. “Without the support of the community through fund raisers such

as the poinsettia campaign, Ottawa volunteer’s ability to support the vulnerable in our communities would be a challenge” says David Fraser of the Canadian Red Cross. Each year, more than two million Canadians use Canadian Red Cross programs and services. In Ontario last year, the Red Cross: • Responded to 561 disasters • Assisted 6,813 people through Red Cross disaster services • Trained 10,481 people through disaster preparedness workshops • Loaned 15,109 pieces of health equipment • Provided Red Cross first aid training to 210,745 people • Reached 18,129 youth through RespectED workshops • Provided transportation rides to 339,821 clients

Sports - Christine Rogers and Barb Taylor captured the gold medal in the pickle ball doubles competition at the Ontario 55+ Regional Games held recently in Cornwall. Rogers and Taylor represented District 7 Ottawa West in the Eastern Regional Games and won all five of their round robin matches on the way to District 7’s only gold medal performance in the multi-sport senior event. Rogers and Taylor played as a pickle ball team only one other time, winning a gold medal in competition in Oshawa, Ont., before garnering another gold medal in Cornwall. Taylor, who has played tennis for 20 years but only one-and-a-half years of pickle ball, said she took to pickle ball like a “duck to water” and really enjoys the sport. Rogers

has played pickle ball for five years and together the twosome have enjoyed their recent successes. Roger Huestis, District 7 co-ordinator, said there were more than 400 participants in Cornwall representing seven districts in eastern Ontario. Events in addition to pickle ball included golf, walking, bowling, shuffleboard, carpet bowling, darts, and card games such as euchre, bid euchre, cribbage and contract bridge. Huestis reports next up for District 7 members and the Ontario Senior Games Association 55+ group is the Ontario Senior Summer Games Championships in August 2014, to be held in Windsor. It is expected that additional activities such as slo-pitch softball, tennis and swimming will be added to the already extensive list of activities offered in Windsor. Anyone 55 years or older who might be interested in participating in any of these activities should contact Roger Huestis at

Covenant Chain Link: reconciliation in action Community - Covenant Chain Link is an annual Ottawa-based event for people interested in learning more about the role of education in the evolving relationship between aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples in Canada. Education was identified by the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples as key to realizing a new relationship between aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples in Canada; one based on sharing, respect and the recognition of mutual rights and responsibilities. Since October 2010, First Nations, Inuit and Métis organizations and individuals, school board representatives, teachers, students, church groups, independent educators, education consultants, and members of the general public have gathered at Covenant Chain Link to explore our common history, exchange ideas and just get to know each other in a safe and open environment. A highlight of this year’s event is Paulette Regan, whose book Unsettling the Settler Within: Indian Residential Schools, Truth Telling and Reconciliation (UBC Press, 2010) is a non-fiction bestseller in B.C. and was short-listed for the 2012 Canada Prize by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences. Unsettling the Settler Within argues that non-aboriginal Canadians must undergo their own process of decolonization in order to truly participate in the transformative possibilities of reconciliation. Regan believes non-aboriginal Canadians must relinquish the persistent myth of themselves as peacemakers and acknowledge the destructive legacy of a society that has stubbornly ignored and devalued

Indigenous experience. It is a compassionate call to action. This year’s event will also include guest speakers, panels, workshops and the chance to learn about available resources and to meet local people working in the same area. A focus is on youth and there will be youth-led panels and workshops. In early 2010, individuals from KAIROS: Canada, aboriginal organizations, school boards, and the United, Presbyterian, and Anglican churches came together with an idea to use education to build bridges of understanding and respect between aboriginal and non-aboriginal people in the Ottawa area. They called this initiative Covenant Chain Link in honour of the Covenant Chain, an alliance between the Iroquois confederacy and the British colonies of North America. Embodied in the Two Row Wampum treaty, the Covenant Chain respects the dignity and integrity of the two peoples involved. Covenant Chain Link is now in its fourth year. This ad hoc coalition of aboriginal and non-aboriginal organizations and individuals believes education must be a genuinely collaborative process that celebrates our shared histories and unique cultures while honouring, the spirit and principles of the Covenant Chain relationship- peace, friendship, and mutual respect. Covenant Chain Link IV will be held on Oct. 18 and 19 at the Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre, 300 Péres Blanc Ave. Details can be found on the KAIROS events calendar website at www.

Hydro Ottawa and Christie Lake Kids celebrate success of youth leadership centre

On Oct. 1, Hydro Ottawa and Christie Lake Kids celebrated the success of the first summer camp held at the Hydro Ottawa Sustainable Youth Leadership Centre, located at Belle Island on Christie Lake. This innovative facility is the first and only program in Canada that provides disadvantaged youth with an opportunity to experience and learn about alternative energy while developing leadership skills. “Contributing to the well-being of our community has always been a part of Hydro Ottawa’s core mandate”, said Hydro Ottawa President and CEO Bryce Conrad. “The programs that Christie Lake Kids offers build character and provide youth with practical, hands-on experience. Through our support, we are providing valuable life skills that help at-risk youth grow into healthy successful adults.”

Jennifer McIntosh/Metroland

Creative minds Judi Miller, a Kanata resident and textile artist, shows off her wares at the Glebe Fine Art sale on Sept. 28.

For seven weeks in the summer and eight weekends during the school year, youth aged 13-17 live and work together on Belle Island, building leadership and teamwork skills. The facility includes roof-mounted solar panels to power lighting, composting toilets, solar-heated showers, and a bicycle-powered water pump that works with a gravity-pressurized water system.

A trusted community.

More than 300 children and youth from Ottawa are expected to visit the site each summer to explore alternative sources of energy and sustainable living.

“The Hydro Ottawa Sustainable Youth Leadership Centre has provided a one of a kind opportunity for our youth to develop pro social skills, outdoor skills, and a lifelong passion for energy conservation and environmentalism”, said Carole Gagne-Ince, executive director of Christie Lake Kids. “What we’ve started, in partnership with Hydro Ottawa, has a really, really bright future.”


Hydro Ottawa employees helped construct the new Sustainable Youth Leadership Centre in May and have the opportunity to mentor youth enrolled in the Christie Lake Kids S.T.A.R. (Skills Through Activity and Recreation) Program.


“I think it’s important that kids can come to places like this because it gets them in touch with a different side of the world”, said Liam, a camper at Christie Lake Kids.

News - After dreaming of an AA baseball team, Ottawa will instead be settling for the return of a Cam-Am league franchise in 2015. City council balked at the proposed $40-million price tag of bringing a AA minor league, professional team to the Ottawa Baseball Stadium in Overbrook and asked staff to go back to the drawing board. The only option that made financial sense is a $4.75-million contract with the low-level Can-Am league, which fielded a team called the Ottawa Rapidz that lasted one unsuccessful year in 2008. Mayor Jim Watson called the Can-Am proposal “a realistic and affordable plan” that is good for baseball fans and taxpayers. “There is an opportunity to put this facility to the use that was intended … and also

open it up as a community space,” he said. The main savings are in the cost to the city to fix up its Coventry Road stadium. While the minor league team would have needed to see $40 million in taxpayer-funded repairs and upgrades to the 20-year-old facility, the CanAm league is comparatively a bargain, requiring about $750,000 in fixes and upgrades up front. The annual net cost for the city to operate the stadium will be $400,000, said city manager Kent Kirkpatrick, but that will rise to $650,000 by 2018. Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley was the only member of the finance and economic development committee to vote against the deal during an Oct. 1 meeting. He questioned why the city is in the baseball business when it’s getting out of things like operating a municipal golf course

and discontinuing the Nepean equestrian park. During the meeting, councillors wanted to know what the $40 million would have included, but that information is secret because it’s part of Mandalay Baseball’s confidential bid the city rejected. The city and many of its baseball fans had set their hopes on a team affiliated with the Blue Jays. Instead, Ottawa will get a franchise in a six-team league that is not affiliated with the major leagues. The team will play 50 home games a season, leaving time for community events at the stadium, according to a city staff report. Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans was critical of the plan and questioned why the city would tie its hands with a baseball contract just as the construction of light-rail near the stadium site could boost the property’s value for sale and redevelopment.

City strikes out on bringing semi-pro baseball to Ottawa Continued from page 42

Watson said light rail provides an opportunity to give the stadium and baseball games an attendance a boost. David Gourlay of Champions for Ottawa Baseball said the process of stirring up fan support and lobbying for a pro team has shown him that there are not enough financial resources or partnership opportunities right now to make a AA team viable here. “Yes, baseball belongs here and an affiliated team would be a good choice,” he said. “Clearly, we are not there now.” Supporting baseball in Ottawa would have required city council to recognize its benefit and invest in it over the long term, which hasn’t happened, Gourlay said. If the Can-Am experience goes well, it could pave the way for a higher-level team in the future, said College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who has long promoted baseball in the city. Council’s other baseball champion, Orléans Coun. Bob Monette, said the contract guarantees there will be less loss to taxpayers and creates a foundation the city can build on. The proposed contract with the league, which still needs council’s final approval, would give Can-Am

a 10-year lease and two five-year options to renew. It also recommends the city seek additional tenants, likely sports-related, to rent office space in the stadium. Some councillors wondered whether that was enough of an out for the city in case a better team came along or it became obvious that selling and redeveloping the land would be more beneficial to the city. Peter Bachelor, a well-known local high-school baseball coach and member of Friends of the Blue Jays Fan Association, advised the city to partner with a company that has “deep pockets” and possibly sell the stadium. That option isn’t on the table now because there is “no appetite” to see the facility torn down, the mayor said. It would cost $367,000 in utility and minor maintenance costs to keep the stadium sitting empty, city staff said. The Can-Am League was originally established in Ontario and Upstate New York in 1936 and folded a number of times before restarting in 2005. Nearby teams include TroisRivieres and Quebec City. Can-Am teams play an interleague schedule with the American Association, another independent league.


The city’s finance committee has approved a 10-year deal to bring pro baseball – although not AA baseball – to Ottawa. If approved by city council, a Can-Am League team will hit the field in 2015.

Aries, patience is a virtue you possess, and you must make the most of your patient nature this week. Keep this in mind when dealing with family and coworkers. Taurus, keep things in perspective and you will have your cake and eat it, too. You can coolly handle tough situations, and that ability serves you well this week. Your imagination is working overtime this week, Gemini. Channel that creative energy and get started on a project you have long been considering. Cancer, you will be very content for the next few weeks. Enjoy these good times and invite those closest to you to enjoy them as well. Leo, your heightened sense of focus on a particular task has left you wondering how to proceed in another area of life. You may want to seek the advice of others. Virgo, you may be tempted to throw caution to the wind. While that may make for a memorable experience, it may not prove wise over the long haul.

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

You could get caught up in a social whirlwind this week, Libra. Keep your feet on the ground or you may be swept away in all of the energy. Staying connected to your feelings is empowering, Scorpio. Even if others don’t feel exactly the same way that you do, they may go along with plans to make you happy. Sagittarius, indulgent behavior won’t pay off in the long run. Moderation works best, and you’ll be glad you didn’t overindulge after the fact. Capricorn, work and family responsibilities have put you under a lot of pressure recently. You could be in need of a respite, even if that break is brief. Aquarius, it’s quite possible you will not get much done this week, as you may be too busy encouraging others rather than focusing on your own needs. Compassion is your speciality, Pisces. Others appreciate your warm nature, so accept their gratitude and affection.
