School teacher wins half-million dollars

News - More restaurant inspections and getting kids to walk or bike to school are priorities in the city’s 2014 public health budget. Ottawa Public Health is proposing to spend $12.4 million in city dollars in addition to $42.6 million in funding from the province next year. The health department says it will need about $1 million more than it did last year to continue offering the same services. That’s within the two per cent increase cap that city council set for each department at the beginning of its term. In the budget tabled on Oct. 21, public health manager Esther Moghadam said the agency wants to reinvent some of the money it’s saving, including $600,000 in efficiencies from having nurses work remotely with laptops.

News - An Orléans teacher and father of three had a big thrill on his Saturday early morning trip to the grocery store last week. Michel St. Onge scanned his lottery ticket, which he purchased at the Metro on Innes Road, and realized he’d won the second prize in the Oct. 25 Lotto Max draw. “The heartbeat went on,” he said. “I scanned it about six or seven times to make sure the machine wasn’t broken, and then I went home and told my wife.” The second prize amount is over half-a-million dollars – $589,035.50 to be exact. St. Onge is a teacher at Henry Larson Elementary

School, located just off Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard in Orléans. The Grade 7 and 8 teacher only missed one day of school, the Monday after he found out, to go to Toronto to pick up his prize. He plans to pay off the mortgage on his home and set a portion aside to pay for his children’s university in the future. As for the rest? “It’ll allow me to retire before 70,” he said. “It’s not like it’s 50 million, but it’s a good amount.”

Plans call for ‘active transportation’ at every school murder” by not providing infrastructure that lets kids safely get to school by walking or biking. Holmes said she thinks school boards bus students from door to door because the city doesn’t provide safe infrastructure for them to walk or bike. Wallace Beaton of Green Communities Canada conducts similar active transportation audits. He told the committee his group has faced a slow and frustrating process to get the city to agree to infrastructure improvements. “You run the risk of creating expectations that you are not able to meet,” he said. Trevor Haché of Ecology Ottawa said the board’s support of a “complete street” policy in the proposed transportation master plan is a step in the right direction in that regard, but it doesn’t go far enough. “It won’t achieve results unless it’s comprehensive,” he said, suggesting the board tell the city to adopt the 10 key elements developed

Public health is also reducing its base budget by eliminating three positions from the books that have been vacant for several years. The health authority wants to put $391,000 of those savings back into expanded programming, including more food-safety inspections of high-risk restaurants, outdoor food vendors and special events and programs aimed at increasing physical activity levels for schoolchildren, including promoting walking and biking to school. That would include eventually developing active-transportation plans for all 230 public elementary schools in Ottawa. The city is already working on demonstration plans with 12 schools, said Ottawa Public Health manager Sherry Nigro. Health board chairwoman Coun. Diane Holmes said the city has “gotten away with

by the National Complete Streets Coalition in the United States, which include specific implementation steps, performance measures and design criteria, among other factors. Transportation committee chairman and health board member Coun. Keith Egli said he and city transportation staff have agreed to meet with Ecology Ottawa on that topic. Health board member Marguarite Keeley said staff should pay special attention to how to increase physical activity for children who live and go to school in rural areas, since they have fewer safe ways to get to school on foot or by bike. Public health is also proposing a one-time investment of $200,000 to continue a program to improve infection control standards in personal service businesses such as tattoo and body-piercing parlours and full-service salons that offer things like acupuncture. Public health is working on a training program for operators of those types of business, as well as a public education campaign. But a couple members of the board of health, including Dr. Atul Kapur, said the city should look at requiring those businesses to be licensed. “It surprises me that in the city of Ottawa you need a licence to be an auctioneer, but you don’t need a license to be a body piercer,” he said. City council will also be asked to pre-approve $200,000 for cost-shared programs for which provincial funding is expected to be made available next spring. That money could go towards programs such as:

Hydro Ottawa joins Councillor Qadri to celebrate St. Daniel School mural In September, students at St. Daniel School gave a makeover to the fence surrounding Hydro Ottawa’s transformer station near Woodroffe Avenue and Baseline Road. This new mural, painted on the cement wall which backs on to the school yard, was officially unveiled at a heart-warming ceremony held at the school on October 25th. The learning mural was created by artist Nicole Bélanger and depicts children enjoying sports and recreation throughout the four seasons. Funding for the project was provided by the City of Ottawa/Crime Prevention Ottawa Paint It Up! youth engagement mural program. Councillor Shad Qadri, Chair of the Board for Crime Prevention Ottawa, joined Hydro Ottawa staff to celebrate the mural with students, parents and teachers. The painting at St. Daniel School is part of a larger initiative to introduce outdoor classrooms, trees for shade and other natural spaces to facilitate learning, playing and socializing for students.. The process of planning, designing and creating the mural with students, teachers, parents and the community at large was a great kick-off to the school’s greening project and will build interest, excitement and pride in the school yard.

News - Despite a few finishing touches – a tile here, a bit of paint there – the Caceres family was ready to move into their new home on Oct. 31. Salvador and Margarita Caceres were all smiles on Oct. 30 at welcoming them to their Habitat for Humanity home they now own on Nantes Street, as they prepared to spend the last night ever in their south Ottawa rental home. It would be the last night they have to carry their daughter, Amanda, up and down the stairs, into the home and into her room. The new, accessible house, has a lift, ramp and special shower for Amanda, who uses a wheelchair and requires 24-hour a day care. It also has lots of space for their teenage son, Kenny, who now attends St. Peter High School, and two energetic young sons, Diego AlePlace Perrault art.pdf 10/29/13and 11:10:27 jandro. Margarita can’t work because of Amanda’s needs, so the family wasn’t able to secure a conventional mortgage to purchase a home. The Place Oct. Perrault 30 partyart.pdf celebrated a long road to 10/29/13 11:10:27 AM their house’s completion. Laura Kresz, the co-chair of Habitat’s family selection committee, recalled the first night she

was supposed to meet the family. It’s mandatory that every member of the family that will be living in the house is present for the family interview. Diego, now a busy toddler who spent the opening party happily running around and smiling at everyone who packed the single family home’s living room, was born the day the interview was supposed to happen. “Diego was determined to be here for that day,” Kresz said. “That day, Diego was born.” Margarita gave an emotional thank you speech to all the volunteers and Habitat for Humanity staff who worked with them to help build their new home, calling their move a dream come true. They were presented with several gifts and baskets, including from sponsors and the Portobello South Community Association. Volunteers who put in 150 or more hours of AMwork on the house were also thanked by Habitat for Humanity at the welcome party, where Kenny cut the ribbon to official signal the completion of his new home. “This house was built by dreams and labour,” said Rev. Jocelyn Richard-Livingstone, who blessed the house. “Now only they can bring this final ingredient which will make this house a home – love.”

Orléans player makes final SkyHawks roster SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY PRICE

Brier Dodge

Sports - The Ottawa SkyHawks have announced the final team roster, and both native Ottawa players who attended training camp have made the final cut. Eric Kiby, a St. Matthew High School graduate, and Manock Lual, a Rideau High School graduate, will be part of the 12-person basketball team playing their inaugural

season in the league this year. “Making cuts is never an easy process; we had a group of very talented men which made the decision process very difficult.” said the SkyHawks head coach Kevin Keathley in a press release. “In the end sometimes it comes down to a numbers game.” The final roster was announced on Oct. 30 after two exhibition games the weekend prior. The SkyHawks won both the exhibition games on the road.


“It was a challenge to select,” said coowner Gus Takkale in the release. “Coach K and I have had some sleepless nights.” The team held training camp at the YMCA in Orléans in the lead up to the decision. The other players on the team’s roster include Jerice Crouch, Fred Sturdivant, Jermaine Johnson, Tirrell Baines, Jamie Vanderbeken, Jamal Crook, Justin Tubbs, Mike Rose, Demetrius Jemison and Ryan Anderson.

Just do it, for art’s sake


t’s time the city put its full weight behind the Arts Court expansion after patching together funding to get the long-running project off the ground. The expansion will now cost the city $34 million. The federal government was asked to pitch in $9 million to go along with $6 million contributed by the province – money originally allocated for a performing arts centre on Elgin Street before those plans fell through – but declined to help out. The city has now approved an extra $8.2 million to make up for the federal share. Mayor Jim Watson is enthusiastic about the project, saying it’s a rare opportunity to build this type of infrastructure in the downtown core. “There was a strong desire certainly on my part to see that we invest in a significant facility for arts and culture in the downtown core,” he said. This project is a boon to the arts community, and will provide space to nurture and promote creative endeavours. It has the potential to not just help the Ottawa arts scene, but to also attract artists from outside the capital to what should be a wonderful new facility. But the city needs to take one further step to help the Arts Court reach its full potential: foot the whole

bill. As it stands, the current Arts Court tenants will be on the hook for $3.2 million of the expansion cost. While they may be happy to raise the money in exchange for the improved facilities, couldn’t that money be put to better use by those tenants? That sum – $3.2 million – is no small change in the artistic world. It could go a long way toward making art, rather than paying for equipment and fixtures for the expanded facility. Why then isn’t the city just coming up with another $3.2 million? There was money allocated in the budget for a great many things, a budget featuring the lowest property tax increase of the current council term at 1.9 per cent. Adding an extra few million wouldn’t have changed that amount in any noticeable way. The argument could be made that if the tenants have a stake in paying for the expansion, it will make for a stronger partnership. The tenants already have a significant stake in the project: they were involved at every step of the planning process so far. There’s no reason to believe they would all of a sudden take such a small gesture by the city for granted. In light of multi-billion dollar transit visions, significant stadium renewals and extensive road renovations, surely the city can come up with a few extra million to help a worthwhile arts project.


Taking a small risk to right the wrongs of the world


ame 3 ended on a play that had never been seen before in a baseball World Series: a St. Louis Cardinals runner thrown at home plate was called safe because it was ruled that he had been obstructed by a Boston Red Sox player. A terrible ruckus ensued but the call stood. The run the umpires allowed to count was the winning run in the game. Even people who were delighted that Boston lost were a bit chagrined at the call. There had been no intent to obstruct (although that turned out to be irrelevant). More important, it just seemed like an unfortunate way for a game that had been exciting and well-played to end – with an umpire’s interpretation of an obscure rule. No one was really happy about it – although it could safely be said that the Red Sox’ unhappiness exceeded that of the Cardinals. But since these were professional players with professional umpires and a professional rule book, there was no alternative, no going back. Which is too bad, because if the game had been played by little kids, the outcome would have been much more satisfactory. When little kids play games, as memory serves, a controversial play such as that one would spark an intense argument, but there

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town would be no umpire there makimg a definitive ruling. Therefore, the kids would fall back on a tried-and-tested solution: “Take it over,” someone would say, and they would all agree on that. The play would be repeated, probably with an outcome that no one could argue about and that would be that. That methodology survives to this day and is not reserved for children. Adult players of games such as tennis will sometimes use it, when there is no agreement on whether a ball was in or out. “Play it again,” someone will suggest, and they will. It’s a good solution: the game is won or lost without the bitterness of controversy. And it makes you wonder whether “take it over” might usefully be applied to other aspects of life.

Orléans News EMC - Thursday, November 7, 2013

Take the Senate. Please. Suppose Nigel Wright could have said “take it over” after writing Mike Duffy the cheque. That would have been better for him and the prime minister, if not for Mike Duffy. Going back even earlier, the prime minister might have wanted to say “take it over” after making the original appointment of Duffy to the Senate. And going back even further, the Fathers of Confederation might, in retrospect, have wanted to say “take it over” after creating the Senate in the first place. A lot of work has to be done on this concept, no matter how useful it might seem on the surface. How many take-it-overs should any one person be allowed? Under what conditions might “take-it-over” be accepted or rejected? And, inevitably, is “take it over” a federal or provincial responsibility? Further, there is a need for a cultural shift, as people learn to shed their winner-take-all mentality and accept the notion that a defeated or hideously embarrassed person deserves another chance. But once we got over the initial awkwardness, we might be pleasantly surprised at the number of improved results in our day-today living and the life of our governmental

institutions. Now, you have to be careful with this. As readers of Stephen King will know, taking it over does not always produce the best result. In his novel 11/22/63, King’s protagonist journeys back in time with the intention of preventing the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Along the way he prevents other small mishaps from happening, and this version of taking it over causes all sorts of unintended calamities. Still, it might be worth the risk if it could prevent the Senate scandal, not to mention the Senate itself, as well as the obstruction call at third base.

Sinkhole fix comes with $2,000 labour cost

Brier Dodge

News - The quick fix for the recent sinkhole that opened on St. Joseph Boulevard wasn’t nearly as costly as last year’s major sinkhole on highway 174. The sinkhole was fixed in about 28 hours from Oct. 7 to 8, and cost the city $2,037 in overtime payments. “As part of the annual bud-

geting process, the city’s environmental services department allocates a portion of its budget to cover costs of this kind,” said Tammy Rose, the city’s manager of drinking water services in an email. The cost to fix the sinkhole in September 2012 ran several million dollars – including shipping and replacement pipe – and took significantly longer to fix than the St. Joseph Boulevard problem. Workers start to fix the St.Joseph Boulevard sinkhole.

Skip the politics To the editor,

Re: Brynna Leslie’s “Throne speech short on substance,” Oct. 24. This delightful columnist should stay away from politico-economic commentary, which obviously isn’t her forte. She sneers at the throne speech for addressing consumer issues like cable bundling and cellphone fees. These matter to a lot of people. My wife and I wanted to order Treehouse for our 10year-old son and had to buy a lot of stations we would never watch to get it. Roaming charges are likely to be an issue now my wife and son are Canadian citizens and will be able to travel in the U.S. without a visa. Bizarrely, Leslie completely ignores the trade agreement between Canada and the European Union, although it is much our most important trade agreement since the FTA with the United States. When she writes about job creation under the Conservative government she becomes delusional: “… most of the jobs created in Canada over the last five years have been low-paying, part-time positions.” In fact, of the 653,000 jobs created between September 2008 and September 2013 (raw estimates), 506,000 were full-time.

Drivers need to follow rules at railway crossings To the editor,

Re: “Safety changes coming to Transitway crossing,” Oct. 24. That terrible and tragic collision between a Via Train and an OC Transpo bus in Ottawa on Sept. 18 that left six bus passengers dead and 30 injured, many seriously, has raised many questions about the safety of railway crossings not only in Ottawa but across Canada. Let’s put the facts into perspective. Before this country, including this city, embarks on a very costly, panic/politically driven national program, estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars, aimed at improving safety at rail crossings in Canada, lets’s consider the following. As reported by the Canada Safety Council, there were 169 rail/highway crossing crashes in Canada in 2011: 25 people were killed and 21 were seriously

injured. It is suspected that some of those killed are suicides. A motorist is 40 times more likely to die in a crash involving a train than in a collision involving another vehicle. Most collisions occur within 40 kilometres of the motorist’s home. The principle cause of level crossing collisions is the failure of the motorist to stop or exercise due care and caution, or to observe and comply with existing laws and regulations. Roughly, 50 per cent of all rail/highway crossing crashes occur at crossings equipped with flashing lights and bell, or flashing lights, bell or gate. If there is a problem at that crossing in Barrhaven, it will not be fixed solely by the “quick fix” measures announced by the city. One would think these measures – removing and trimming vegetation around that crossing, installing warning lights – would have already been in place. Why

they were not begs scrutiny! Most of the collisions at railway crossings in this country can be reduced by driver behavior combined with enforcement and common sense, and at very modest costs. In the grand scheme of things, should this approach not be considered? If not, why not? Emile Therien public health and safety advocate Ottawa

Accessibility renovations – Not just for old people


ore than two-thirds of Canadian homeowners are expected to renovate this year, according to a poll released by Scotiabank last month. For most, home renovations will account for the largest lump sum of money they’ll ever spend at once. But how much forethought are people putting into remodelling? “People can be pretty cavalier about adding a bathroom, kitchen or addition,” says Moneca Kaiser, the owner of Moneca Kaiser Design Build in Ottawa. “They’re thinking, I want a new kitchen now, but they don’t take time to think about how their family will interact in and with that space for the next 10, 20 or 50 years.” Good design, says Kaiser, is not static. Real design is “flexible, multi-faceted and adaptable.” “People often think of blueprints as design,” says Kaiser. “But a blueprint is just one of the tools in design. You’re going to have a blueprint for what you need right now, and another blueprint for what you may need if your in-laws move in temporarily or if you break your leg.” True design, she says, is fluid and dynamic. Design is living and takes into account the lifecycle and

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse environment of the people living in a space or interacting with an object – and it considers both the present and the future of the space. Kaiser is writing a book called “Curing Dysfunctional House Syndrome.” In it, she outlines her own design program developed over the past two-and-a-half decades as a designer and carpenter, which includes an extensive investigation of the people for which she’s designing. “I start every project by asking people what their values are,” says Kaiser. “I take them through a fourpage exercise to get to the heart of what’s really important to them. If I value family life, that’s going to require a certain kind of kitchen. If, on the other hand, I value efficiency, that’s going to require an entirely different space.” Kaiser delves further into her

clients’ lives, getting to know everything from their state of health and their age, the people around them, who they spend time with, their favourite recipes, even how much money they make. “If I’m doing a kitchen and my client says they have a goal to eat healthier, I’m going to figure out what I can do in that kitchen to make it easier for them to make more salads,” Kaiser explains. And as Canada faces the challenge of an aging population, design becomes ever-more important, particularly in home renovations. Hard built-in components of standard heights that are mass-produced by manufacturers are not going to suffice. On the other hand, says Kaiser, things like cabinets on castors and counters with different elevations

can accommodate the now – say a couple who are different heights – and the future if one day someone needs space and height required to prepare food in a wheelchair, for example. “And if people are thoughtful in design, they may integrate a ledge, just at the right height beside the toilet, that can be used as a grab bar if there’s ever a need,” says Kaiser.

... regulators and developers also need to be thinking about flex-housing and design on a larger scale “It doesn’t scream convalescence because, as part of the design, it’s almost invisible, yet it’s completely efficient and effective.”

As Ottawa makes efforts toward a city that’s more senior-friendly, regulators and developers also need to be thinking about flex-housing and design on a larger scale. The modern response to urban density seems to be stacked townhomes, where people live on multiple levels. This type of design has replaced the popular horizontal duplex of the last century, where families lived on a single floor, but shared property. But as Kaiser notes, it’s a lot more difficult to think about installing ramps, integrating a main floor powder room with shower floor, or cordoning off a dining room to be used for convalescence if people are living on multiple levels. “People are not taking enough time with design,” says Kaiser. “We pay lip service to it, but design isn’t pretty pictures and blueprints. It requires very deep engagement with the people using it and it has to be flexible.”

Bad seed: Derek Dunn

News - About 30 per cent of bee colonies were lost last spring; the second year in a row for mass die-offs. The federal government has linked

Insecticide linked to mass die-off of bees

large-scale farming practices to the decline of insects that pollinate $2 billion worth of fruit and vegetables every year. In September Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) issued to farmers a series of

recommendations against certain insecticides known as neonicotinoids. Is it enough to recommend against the usage of neonicotinoids? Dwight Foster is a farmer in North Gower. He’s been scratching a living off the land for many years. A grain

farmer with 4,000 acres – and a feed lot with 1,500 head of cattle – Foster can’t underestimate how crucial insecticides are to his operation. “The seed treatment is very important for the development of the crops,” said Foster, a man of few words. He said there is no reason to rush to judgment on neonicotinoids; that very little science has been done on the issue in Canada. He wonders if insecticides are killing the bees or something else or a combination of multiple factors. Health Canada blamed last year’s dieoff to weather: one cold snap at the wrong time could devastate colonies. Then there’s exotic mites and fungi shipped in unwittingly or otherwise from far flung parts of the world that attack native bees. Or even if it is insecticide-related, at which point in the farming process do neonicotinoids attack them?

wherever you memories to wherever you make make memories to treasure. treasure. wherever you make memories to treasure.

home is

where you have fun with friends independent of the weather


Foster’s point is that no one at this stage can say for sure. And for him, the stakes are too high to act without certainty: a neonicotinoid ban would be a deal-breaker. “There’s no reason to throw the baby out with the bath water,” he said. “Without another product in place that does what it does, it would be huge disaster.” Many large-scale farm operations are highly efficient but deeply susceptible to unravelling at the slightest change. Expensive equipment needs to be paid for through expected high yields. The slow eating away at profit that nature caused in the past is, today, replaced by a solid defence against losses – thanks in large part to insecticides. Beekeeper Arnold Polk lives in West Carleton between Pakenham and Arnprior. He has been an apiculturist since the mid 1970s when he took over his father-in-law’s farm.

we had a cool period. And they never made honey after that.” Others would say neonicotinoids played an indirect role in the decimation. After many years of usage, industrial insecticides are omnipresent: in water, soil, plants and animals such as bees. It could make them more susceptible to parasites and fungi. Polk accepts that the science isn’t out on a cause, but conventional wisdom tells him that the two don’t mix. “I think it’s a contamination but I don’t have any proof of that. There’s a lot of research to do, a lot of unknowns right now,” Polk said. “All I know is that pesticides and bees don’t mix well together. DuPont and Monsanto (companies) do lots of research, but nobody knows the long term.” Beekeepers are anxious for a solution to stave of future losses. Farmers are unwilling to change the status quo for fear of losing profit. That may seem like a strict dichotomy. But according to the Arnprior area’s vice president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Debra Pretty-Straathof, it is more complex. Those who farm corn and soya use neonicotinoids. They are predominately in south western Ontario. Farmers in the Ottawa Valley area include those who require pollination, either because they are growing vegetables or feeding animals on food that flowered. “You will have polar opposites in any group, but we are trying to work together,” Pretty-Straathof said. “Neither side wants to wipe out the other. Everybody wants to help (bees) but nobody wants to have a knee-jerk solution.” She said it is widely accepted among farmers that neonicotinoids are a cause. What is less certain, at least from the beekeepers side, is at what point the insecticides affect pollinators. planter dust

PMRA is studying contaminated “planter dust.” The hypothesis states that a coating of insecticide on each seed comes off during the farming process. It creates a dust cloud that bees fly though, causing them to ingest the neonicotinoids and die. Anecdotal claims from southern Ontario on this theory reached Polk. “He (a beekeeper) said when (bees) were coming back through the cornfield they were falling like rain, and were in some kind of paralysis state,” Polk said. “They’ve lost hundreds of colonies of bees.” Critics say inhalation of dust plays a less significant role than does consumption. Neonicotinoids could be fused into the seed and, over many years, the soil, and taken up by the plant through the soil to kill insects feeding on them. Ponds and other water spots could be chemical soups after this many years of using insecticides too, adding to chances bees could be ingesting them. See, HEALTH, page 43

Ontarians backing organ donation

Connected to your community

Community - Fifty hospitals are working with Trillium Gift of Life Network to promote and create a positive culture of organ and tissue donation in Ontario, an increase of nearly 30 per cent from a year ago. By the end of 2013 there will be 55 hospitals and by next year, all 60 hospitals in Ontario with capacity to facilitate organ donation, will

notify the network when a patient has died or is at high risk for imminent death to ensure that all potential opportunities for donation are identified. Hospitals are also helping to promote organ and tissue donor registration in their communities and actively encouraging their staff to register consent for organ and tissue donation through reg-

istration drives. Since April 2012, 24 hospitals have run registration drives with the most successful to date being the tri-hospital drive done by University Health Network, Hospital for Sick Children and St. Michael’s Hospital, which achieved almost 3,600 visits to Ontario’s online donor registry. New data available at www. shows that as of Sept. 30, 2.78 million Ontarians have registered their consent to save lives through organ and tissue donation, an increase of 57,806 registrations since June 30. QUICK FACTS

• As of Sept. 30, there were 1,483 people in Ontario waiting for a lifesaving organ

transplant. • One donor can save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of up to 75 more through the gift of tissue. Ontario has made it simple to register consent for organ and tissue donation: online at, in person at a ServiceOntario centre or by mail, download a copy of the consent form at

News - St. Joseph Boulevard, which functioned as Orléans’ main street through the early development of the area, is about to get a bit more interesting for pedestrians. Plaques describing historical places are set to be installed along the street, describing life as it was in the 1950s. The 32 plaques commemorating historic sites in Orléans will hopefully be installed by Christmas, said Franco-Ontarian Heritage and Historical Society president Nicole Fortier. The bases have already been installed in the correct locations. Once the final artwork is approved and the plaques are produced, they can be installed. “The biggest job was to put in the bases,” she said. “Now it’s a matter of approving the artwork.” The society worked with several partners in the community to complete the plaques, which describe cultural, economic, social and agricultural life in the ’50s through stories and characters of individual former homes or stores. The ’50s were chosen because the society’s representatives decided it was the turning point for the area towards becoming more urban. A book has been put together, which marks the street address and landmark at each of the





sites. It’s titled Orléans 1950-1960, St. Joseph Boulevard Remembers. The aim is to promote Orléans heritage through the community to both francophones and anglophones in a permanent way, though many of the original settlers in the area were francophone. The book had a launch on Oct. 20, with over 450 people in attendance, said Fortier. “Everyone was very happy,” she said. “It was kind of an Orléans reunion with everyone.” The book is already for sale, with copies available at Cuisine and Passion on St. Joseph Boulevard. They can also be purchased by contacting the society at 613-830-7788, and asking for Nicole, or by email at sfopho@gmail. com. The cost is $10. EXAMPLES OF MARKED SPOTS

encourage dancers who have trained here locally,” Bouvrette said. “The message I’m trying to send is you can continue your dance career here.”  The dancers are employed parttime with Tara Luz Danse; most work with two or three companies and teach dance or yoga on the side.  They also travel to local French schools, mostly in Orléans, where Bouvrette has lived for over 30 years. She lived in British Columbia while she earned her degree in dance.  As well, they use their home at

News - Dancers didn’t show up at the first rehearsal for Les Souliers d’Amélie prepared for the theme. There wasn’t one yet.  Instead, they each showed up with a bag filled with objects starting with the same letter. For one dancer, it was “S”: socks, soap, sugar, anything that started with “s” from around her house. And shoes.  They went with the flow, and that’s how Anik Bouvrette managed to choreograph Les Souliers d’Amélie (Amélie’s shoes), the upcoming Tara Luz Danse performance that takes to the Shenkman stage on Nov. 16.  “It’s trusting the creative process and letting the work emerge,” Bouvrette said. “I’m surprised by the things that come up.” The performance is playful and slightly absurd, she said, and uses all props that the four dancers that form the company brought in their bags on that first day of rehearsal.  “Amélie is a very colourful character - and she loves shoes,” she said.  It means it’s up to the audience to make their own conclusions about the plot, and even which of the four female dancers is Amélie. Bouvrette enjoys speaking with the audience after to see if they pick out the same elements or come up with something different.  The contemporary dancers, Amanda Bon, Amelia Griffin, Marine Larochelle and Mélissa Roy, will perform to music composed for the show. Together, they’ve been rehearsing with Bouvrette for over a year, helping to

And of course, providing the props and shoes that inspire the show. “With the introduction of every new pair of shoes, the shoes lead (the audience) into a different journey of movement,” said Bouvrette.  The performance is family-friendly, including the showtimes.

Bouvrette’s company, Tara Luz Danse, has a clear identity. 

There is no actual Tara that is a part of the company the name is a nod to the latin word for Earth, Portuguese word for light and femininity of the company.   All of the dancers have trained professionally in Ottawa, and are from Ottawa or Gatineau. While performances are bilingual, it’s a francophone dance company.  “It’s important for me to try and

When Shenkman first opened, she wasn’t sure that there would be enough demand in the community for a contemporary dance company, but she’s been surprised by the turnout and support for local arts in Orléans.  “When you do give access, it’s wonderful to see what can happen,” she said. “There is so much a community can bring to artists.”  Tickets are on sale for the Nov. 16 performance at the Shenkman Arts Centre, over the phone at 613-5802700 or by visiting Tickets are $18.50.

Remembrance Day held in high regard


other was always concerned that we five children didn’t have the proper respect for the true meaning of Remembrance Day. The school at Northcote with only 18 pupils, had no piano and the few county officials were already involved with the ceremony in the town of Renfrew, and so there was little in the way of observance at the school. For this reason, Mother, each year, piled all of us into the Model T and headed into town where, as she put it, there would be a proper and fitting ceremony to remember those who had fallen in the First World War. Mother’s three young brothers had all been in the army, even though Mother said they weren’t old enough to vote, but they were old enough to fight in the war. By the way Mother talked about her brothers, I wondered if they perhaps had won the war singlehandedly. Without fail, the weather was

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories always dreadful on Remembrance Day. We would drive through freezing rain or snow, it seemed, and at a very young age I wondered if the terrible weather had something mysterious to do with the sombreness of the day. And so when we headed into Renfrew, we were bundled up like mummies with hats and mitts and winter boots. We certainly wouldn’t have the luxury of wearing slacks on such a day and even though I usually hated them with a passion, I was very grateful for the heavy navy blue, fleece-lined bloomers over our long

underwear and long beige, ribbed stockings. But it never mattered how much clothes we had on, there was always a piercing wind rolling down Raglan Street where the parade took place at the war memorial and it penetrated our bodies and had us shivering like leaves on tree. The children from the Renfrew schools always marched to the place where the ceremony was held. We five country children were very aware that we weren’t really a part of a group, but that certainly didn’t matter to our mother.

Unmatched Levels of comfort, dignity & care.

B to ook ur y to ou da r y!

She would wait until the town school pupils had formed perfect lines, looking neither left nor right, and would march the five of us right up to the front row, and position us so that we were actually an extension of the line-up of town kids. My older sister Audrey was most embarrassed, but her protests did nothing to sway our Mother. The town children had sheets of music and we would shudder in embarrassment when we would see Mother walk right over to a teacher, whisper in her ear, and then point to us. We would then see her head back to us with five sheets of music. For reasons much beyond my comprehension, someone from the town ranks of pupils always fainted. Just as sure as death and taxes, as soon as the person leading the program opened his mouth, one or two would topple over. If the overcome person was a girl, the teacher would rush up, fan her with the sheet music, and if that didn’t help, she would be carried off with her eyes rolled into the back of her head. But if it was a boy pupil who had succumbed to the pressures of the day and toppled over, he was left to lie there until he either revived on his own or the ceremony ended. Emerson said, on the way home, “those Renfrew kids are a sickly lot ... certainly none of us ever fell over in a dead faint.” After all the war songs had been sung, out of the crowd would come a very old man with a shiny trumpet tucked under his arm. He would walk the full length of the parade area, and he wore a soldier’s uniform that obviously had been borrowed. His hands were all but

covered with the cuffs and the pant legs bagged over his swath-covered legs. He was very elderly and Mother, ever the one to add drama to any situation, said he probably fought in the Boer War. He played the trumpet loud and clear as a bell, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd. The Renfrew children were the first to march off the parade grounds and Emerson, not to be outdone by kids from town, turned on the heal of his gum-rubbers and with his arms swinging, marched

For reasons much beyond my comprehension, someone from the town ranks of pupils always fainted

back down the street to where Mother had parked the Model T. On the road back to Northcote we would be subjected once again to Mother’s stories of how her own brothers went off to war and often her voice would catch with the memory. But we knew she was filled with pride and I too would be caught up in the stories. I would think of those uncles, who returned safely from battle unscarred and I would think I was related to true war heroes. Then I would know, even though I was very young, why Remembrance Day was so important to our mother. R0012233909

Singer-songwriter wins award for song about sisters Orléans performer honoured by Ontario Arts Council Brier Dodge

Arts - Leila Goldberger made the right decision to record her song Sisters, several years after she wrote and performed the song as a surprise gift at her own sister’s wedding. While it was frightening for her to put her song out in the public, it was rewarded with the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award from the Ontario Art Council. “It’s a very personal thing and easy to get sidetracked by self-doubt and fear,” Goldberger said. “I decided recently to just let that go and be myself. The award came shortly after.” She’s been writing and performing songs since she was a child, including while a student at Cairine Wilson Secondary School. “I’ve always written poems or songs or things like that, and I started playing guitar when I was probably about seven,” she said. “High school’s where I really started to

Stephen Thorne

Leila Goldberger recently won the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award from the Ontario Art Council for her song Sisters. write full songs.” Goldberger’s sister asked her to perform at her wedding several years ago. Instead of singing a generic

cover, Goldberger wrote her own song about the relationship between sisters. It’s that song that won her the

award from the Ontario Arts Council in October, at a gala dinner held in Mississauga. She won the award, called a song-

writing award, though she performs all the songs that she writes. Besides singing, she plays the acoustic guitar on her own tracks. “Leila Goldberger was the clear winner – her song’s excellence stood out throughout the competition,” said the jurors in a press release from the Ontario Arts Council. “We loved the melody, loved the idea and wanted a sister just like in the song.” Goldberger doesn’t have any upcoming performances in the area, but would like to start performing more often. “Music is definitely something I’d like to be doing more of, so this is serendipitous,” she said. “It helps me move in that direction. The plan now is to go back into the studio and record a debut album.” The award came with a $1,000 cash prize, which she plans to use to pay for studio time. Still living in Orléans, Goldberger works from home, operating a graphic design, project management and web design company. But she’d like to start spending more time on her music, and hopefully play some folk festivals in the near future. The song is available on iTunes, and can be found on the music website She can be found on Facebook under Leila Bird Music.

More Canadian kids being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes Community - Long considered an adult-only disease, type 2 diabetes is becoming more prevalent among children. Children as young as eight years of age are being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and the incidence appears to be increasing rapidly. The development of type 2 diabetes is closely related to obesity; however other risk factors include family history, ethnic background, and physical inactivity. Dr. Jonathan McGavock, a Canadian Diabetes Association past scholar and research scientist at the Manitoba Institute of Child Health presented an oral abstract on Physical Activity Intensity and Adiposity

in Obese Youth: The POWER Trial at the Canadian Diabetes Association and Canadian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism professional conference and annual meetings in Montreal. The POWER trial identifies the effects of vigorous versus moderate intensity exercise training on obese youth and their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. This trial was conducted to better understand what type of physical activity will help prevent obese children from developing type 2 diabetes. “Physical activity plays a powerful role in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes, however, little data exists

to describe the role of physical activity in the prevention of type 2 diabetes in obese youth,” says McGavock. “Since health care expenditures associated with diabetes are significant, novel cost effective strategies are required to prevent earlyonset type 2 diabetes and its complications in youth.” Obese youth ages 13 to 19 years old were recruited for the trial. The 120 selected youth were randomly placed into three groups: a vigorous physical activity group, a moderate physical activity group and a sedentary control group. Over a period of six months, physical activity programming was delivered three times weekly for 30 to 45 minutes to

Early screening, intervention and optimization of glycemic control are essential, as the onset of type 2 diabetes during childhood is associated with severe and early onset of microvascular complications. People with diabetes should set specific physical activity goals.

Vigorous physical activity was not associated with greater loss of fat tissue relative to moderate physical activity, despite the original hypothesis stating that vigorous intensity physical activity would lead to a greater reduction in fat tissue.

News - Only a handful of residents attended the city’s budget consultation held at the Shenkman Arts Centre in Orléans on Oct. 28. Most of the attendees were city staff, who came to hear local councillors, the mayor and the manager of city services present the city’s 2014 budget, and answer questions. The 2014 draft budget has the tax increase set at 1.9 per cent. The meeting drew about five or six residents who aren’t city employees, held in the Richcraft Theatre at the arts centre. There were several questions, so the meeting, scheduled to run for two

hours, ended more than an hour early. Each of the four councillors in the “east block,” as they refer to Innes, Beacon Hill-Cyrville, Orléans and Cumberland wards, had projects they’ve been pushing for approved. In Innes Ward, the Brian Coburn Boulevard extension has been a priority. Funds allocated allow for an extension from Mer Bleu Road to Navan, and then through to the Blackburn Bypass. There were also funds allocated for Trail’s Edge Park. Beacon-Hill Cyrville Coun. Tim Tierney has been thrilled over the allocation of funds for the Cyrville road reconstruction for bus lanes, and the Blair LRT station, both part of

the master plan. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais is looking forward to parks and recreation funding in his ward. Millennium Park is schedule to receive a splash pad, and several additional soccer fields in the budget. And Orléans Coun. Bob Monette presented a list of the various improvements, big and small, happening in his ward. They range from the development of a Petrie’s Landing park and the widening of St. Joseph Boulevard to pathway lighting replacement at Fallingbrook Park. Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex will also get accessibility improvements, including doors, accessible washrooms and changerooms.

CHEO taking the ouch out of flu immunizations Sabine Gibbins

News – Babies can say goodbye to the “ouch” when it comes to getting their flu vaccine. CHEO recently launched a new program called Be Sweet to Babies, aimed at helping parents find way to reduce the pain when it comes to immunizations. The research team behind the project is lead by Dr. Denise Harrison, chair in nursing care of children, youth and families at CHEO and University of Ottawa. The group put together a YouTube video which demonstrates ways for parents to help alleviate the immunization pain. As many moms and dads can tell, said Harrison, immunizations can be painful for infants and distressing for parents, but it doesn’t have to be. Through breastfeeding or offering their infant sugar-water, the pinch of the needle is not even felt. “This is something we all need to consider doing from a parent’s perspective,” she said. But, she added, the majority of parents or doctors are not made aware of these simple and effective ways to reduce the pain. Research shows that breastfeeding babies or giving them sugar wa-

parents and care providers to find better ways of managing children’s pain during vaccinations. “It’s mind-blowing how these simple distractions can help them,” Harrison said. “It really does give them comfort.” The team will monitor the number of hits, comments, likes and dislikes the video receives over the next 12 months. It will also monitor all newly posted videos to see whether effective pain reduction strategies are starting to be implemented as a result. “At CHEO, we believe in using evidence-driven health care to ensure the best outcomes for our children, youth and families,” said Harrison. “We hope this project will change standard practices for giving shots, therefore reducing tears and fears during injections now and in the future.” In addition to the YouTube videos, CHEO, in partnership with Ottawa Public Health, has developed and disseminated immunization pain fact sheets. These fact sheets have easy-to-follow advice on how to reduce pain during injections for babies, children and teens.

bies up to one year of age, she said. While breastfeeding and sugar water work best for babies, upright front-front holding and distraction work for young children as well while they’re given immunizations, she added. However, these strategies are rarely used by health care providers and parents. There are hundreds of videos currently on YouTube of babies being injected; however, proven pain reduction techniques are rarely used. “Some nurses and doctors don’t even know about this, which is why we are trying to show the video to as many people as possible,” she said. CHEO’s Be Sweet to Babies research team carried out a review of 142 of the videos. “We noticed almost all of the babies cried before or during their injections, with some crying solidly for over two minutes after the injections,” said Dr. Harrison. “No videos showed breastfeeding or use of sugar water during the injections and only four babies were held in a front-front position.” As a result of their findings, CHEO’s Be Sweet to Babies research team decided to post their own video on YouTube demonstrating effective pain reduction techniques being put into practice. The goal of the project is to help

Mayor calls for feds, province to be partners in light rail Transit, cycling called keys to Ottawa’s economic future Laura Mueller

News - Mayor Jim Watson called for co-operation from the federal and provincial levels of government to build the extended light-rail system he envisions. In an address on Ottawa’s economic outlook delivered to local business leaders on Oct. 24, Watson said the proposed Stage 2 plan to bring light rail east to Place d’Orléans, west to Bayshore and Baseline stations and to bring the O-Train south to Bowesville can only happen if the upper levels of government are on board. “The federal and provincial governments were excellent team players with the first phase of light rail,” Watson said. “We are counting on them to continue to be our partners.” The mayor called out Orléans MP Royal Galipeau for suggesting the city write to Santa Claus for funding for the project shortly after it was announced. “Well, you know, Santa made a pre-Christmas visit to Toronto and gave them $660 million for a three-stop subway extension,” the mayor said during his speech. Ottawa only wants its fair share of the federal government’s infrastructure funding program, which will dole out $53.5 billion for infrastructure projects across Canada over the next decade. Ottawa’s $975-million ask of the federal government represents two per cent of the federal infrastructure fund – less than Ottawa’s proportion of the country’s population,

which is three per cent, Watson said. “I expect our local MPs will work with us to ensure our city gets its fair share as well,” Watson said. He urged politicians in other levels of government to look beyond the next election to the future generations that could benefit from the transit system. “Projects like this one are bigger than any one mayor, premier or prime minister,” Watson said. The mayor also had a message for people who don’t see the value of a $3 billion investment in the next phase of light rail. Pitting drivers against transit users and cyclists is a de-

bate of the past, Watson said. “Our economic future is too important to resort to such old-school arguments,” he said. Even those who could never see themselves hopping on a train, bus or bike can see the benefit of one less car in front of them on the highway, Watson said. Promoting other forms of transportation helps prevent gridlock and keep goods and services moving, he said. “It is in our economic interest to get more people on the bus, and more people walking and cycling,” Watson said.

Help children and youth create lifelong connections The focus of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) is child safety. We work in collaboration with families and community partners to resolve any concerns or struggles parents may be faced with. We provide the family with support to ensure children and youth receive safe and nurturing care, while staying at home. If a child does come into care, CASO continues to provide support so that the family, if possible, can be reunited. When a child comes into the permanent care of the Society, a permanency plan is created. This plan may include living with kin, legal custody, or adoption. Customary care is also an option for First Nation, Inuit and Métis children, which allows a child to live with a caregiver identified by the child’s community.

The grind between the Games Brier Dodge

Sports - While his surprise 2012 Olympic berth gets him a few perks, kayaker Michael Tayler’s Games appearance hasn’t changed much about his day-to-day life. Tayler clinched Canada’s lone whitewater kayak spot for the London Games, although he went into Olympic trials an underdog. So now, a year after the Olympic hoopla has wrapped up, he’s in the same spot he was before London – focusing and aiming for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. “London was really a bonus Olympics for me because I’ve always been aiming for Rio,” said the Westboro-raised athlete. He’s into a regular schedule of training, travelling, and competing, preparing for international competitions that can help Canada secure spots on the 2016 Olympic team. Only a certain number of Olympic spots are allocated for white water kayakers, and performances in the years leading up to Games can affect how many athletes Canada is able to send. Currently in his fourth year of studying at Carleton University and living in Old Ottawa South, he’ll be taking the winter semester off to train in warmer climates. February

is the United Arab Emirates to train, then North Carolina in March. In April, the world championships for 23-and-under will be held in Australia. After a 13th place-finish this year in Slovakia, it’s the next big goal for Tayler, who said it’s his best chance of earning a medal on

London was really a bonus Olympics for me because I’ve always been aiming for Rio Michael Tayler

the world stage. “Everyone’s like, ‘When are the next Olympics?’” he said. “But we don’t just start training six months before.” While training and travel are constants for any elite athlete, his Olympian status has a few perks. It was easier to attract sponsors in the months leading up to the Games, but there are opportunities through the

Canadian Olympic Committee that he didn’t have before. He was at Elite BMW on Oct. 25 for a sponsor fundraiser where money was donated to the Canadian Olympic Committee for each test drive. Tayler’s done other promotional appearances, allowing him to make some money on the side to help pay for all his travel and expenses. He’s also done volunteer events, like helping at the food bank, speaking to students at local schools and CHEO visits. “I say yes to everything,” he said. “I enjoy it, there are a lot of events with the Canadian Olympic team.” Besides the appearances – and the photo on his uncle’s commercial van – it’s back to a normal athlete life for Tayler as he continues towards the same goal he’s had for years: the 2016 Rio Games. As he said, “right back where I started.”

Olympic kayaker Michael Tayler is a Carleton University student and Nepean High School graduate and is already training for next Olympic Games in Brazil. Brier Dodge/Metroland

Maison Fraternité celebrates 50 years of service Michelle Nash

News - A Vanier rehabilitation and treatment centre is celebrating 50 years of service with a huge thank you to all those who have supported the organization over the years. Maison Fraternité opened its doors in 1962, and since the mid-1970s has been a part of the Vanier community, with three locations in the neighbourhood. On Oct. 25, the centre celebrated the milestone by acknowledging former staff and clients memories at a party at the Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre. More than 250 people attended the event and executive director Yvon Lemire said the event was about showing off the work his staff does everyday. “Our focus is on the clients,” Lemire said. “We wanted it to be their evening. It was a very joyful, very heartfelt and real.” The centre handed out certificates to some former clients who were celebrating years of sobriety. Lemire said at that point, the celebration became very emotional. The treatment centre got its start when three organizations, the Commissariat du Tiers-Ordre d’Ottawa, Les Chantiers d’Emmaus and the Societé St-Vincent de Paul de la Pa-

roisse St-Francois d’Assise decided to create a shelter for the homeless. The first location was in Hintonburg, where it remained until 1975. The transition from a shelter to a treatment centre happened early on. “We realized we could do more. That we could help,” Lemire said. The organization began offering counselling for drug and alcohol users 1966 and it was around this time that Lemire got his own start as a counselor at the centre. “I worked here for seven years, left for a long time and actually recently returned this past year,” he explained. The executive director said in the beginning, he believed substance abuse could come to an end, but nearly 30 years later in his career, he said he believes substance abuse for some people is a part of life. “I always dreamed my job would not be needed by the year 2000, but now I see the need is increasing,” he said. Lemire credits this increase to the way some people choose to cope with stresses in their lives, adding it then becomes a bigger problem when the coping mechanism becomes the addiction. For Maison Fraternité, coping with life’s stresses and triggers that create substance abuse is the biggest part of what it does.

Michelle Nash/Metroland

Yvon Lemire, executive director of Maison Fraternité and finance director Daniel Demers show some of the centre’s history at its offices in Vanier. The centre celebrated its 50th anniversary on Oct. 25. “Abstinence is half the battle,” Lemire said. “We try to identify the triggers and stresses that give them the reason to use. We aim to give them

the tools so they don’t relapse. We see ourselves as the healing piece.” The centre’s three Vanier locations offer services primarily for Franco-

Ontarian men, women and youth. Clients come from across Ontario for its day programs and residential programs. “We are located in what we consider the stronghold of Ottawa’s francophone community,” Lemire said. “It’s a point of pride to us to be located here.” Lemire added most of the community, except for the organization’s closest neighbours, may not even know what they do. One of the main goals the organization has with its 50th anniversary celebrations, Lemire said, is to help create awareness in the Vanier and Ottawa community to the type of programs the organization does. “We are kind of anonymous in this community,” he said. “There is still such a stigma attached to addictions. Mental health awareness is seeing many champions come out to support it, which is what we need for addictions.” Part of that awareness program was a fun “lip dub” video which features the entire staff, singing a song about the centre. “We wanted to do something different and upbeat for the celebration, but also do something that promotes our services,” Lemire said. The video is available to watch on the centre’s Facebook page,

Ontario’s Power Struggle Part 2: The need to grow the economy amid growing electricity rates Steph Willems

News - Five years after the onset of the economic downturn, Ontario’s economy is struggling to retain the status – and job numbers – it once boasted as Canada’s economic powerhouse. Since 2008, Ontario’s economy has been battered, with an unemployment rate of 7.5 per cent in the third quarter of 2013 and annual gross domestic product increases of 1.8 and 1.4 per cent in 2011 and 2012 respectively, according to Statistics Canada. By comparison, Alberta’s GDP rose 5.4 per cent in 2011 and 3.9 per cent in 2012, while Saskatchewan’as rose 5.5 and 2.2 per cent in the corresponding two years. With an economic growth rate lower than the national average and an unemployment rate higher than the national average – coupled with a stillincreasing debt of $260 billion – Ontario’s economic situation is far from rosy. Turning this situation around will require

a combination of increased investment and maintenance of existing employment levels. One factor that can have a sizeable effect on a company’s financial viability or decision to set up shop in Ontario is energy rates. With another rate hike planned for Nov. 1, Ontario’s electricity rates have risen dramatically over the last five years. Renewal of grid components, the addition of heavily subsidized renewable energy such as wind and solar power, backed up by new gas generators to provide grid stability have all played a role in driving hydro rates up for not just consumers, but businesses as well. Ontario Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli has stated the province made some strategic alterations on the energy file and related contracts to mitigate those increases, adding the province was “starting to turn the corner” on rising rates. Chiarelli would not, however, discuss when rates might stop their upward climb, preferring to wait until the province’s long-term energy plan is

released later this year. Keeping existing jobs, especially the manufacturing jobs that long served as the backbone of Ontario’s economy, has been a challenge, with companies drawn to lower labour costs in the United States. Taxation and energy rates are the other big considerations for industry. ontario rates

In Canada, Quebec and Manitoba boast significantly lower energy rates than Ontario, with rate decreases actually reported in Quebec in 2011 and 2012 due to surplus power. Ontario also has periodic power surpluses, which the Independent Electrical System Operator - the crown corporation that runs Ontario’s power grid - sometimes sells to neighbouring jurisdictions below cost, a situation that has a negative impact on ratepayers. Like the manufacturing industry, the northern Ontario mining industry has traditionally played a large role in the province’s economic fortunes,

putting places like Sudbury and its iconic big nickel on the map. Earlier in October, a North Bay newspaper published an article on the increase of heavy truck traffic on Highway 11 north of the city. The trucks are carrying mine concentrates from the Sudbury area to Noranda, Que., for refining. Mining is an industry prone to boom and bust cycles that create uncertainty for individuals and whole regions. But, it can be very profitable over a sustained period, and the province – tasked with wrestling down a deficit first and a debt later - would like to see mining thrive. The much-talked about Ring of Fire deposit in the James Bay Lowlands of northern Ontario has the potential for mass extraction of a number of valuable metals, the most lucrative being chromite -- a key ingredient in stainless steel. Currently the project is still in its infancy, with a lack of either rail or road access to the remote area and two key land holders locked in a legal battle over the one ac-

cess route. If extracted, the chromite contained within the Ring of Fire would be transported to a smelter in Sudbury for processing under a plan mapped out by the Liberal government. The largest land-holder in the Ring of Fire – U.S.-based Cliffs Natural Resources – is now threatening to pull the plug on the project if it can’t get the all-weather road it wants, which would threaten the Sudbury smelter and the economic benefit such an operation would bring. ring of fire

Energy comes into the equation when one factors in the huge amount of electricity needed to run a smelter. With Ontario’s rates already higher than Quebec’s and rising, the worry is that some of the economic benefit from the Ring of Fire could bypass Ontario for refining in another jurisdiction, such as the province next door. One bill-reducing energy incentive listed by Chiarelli is the Northern Industrial Rate

Program, which provides a rebate approximately equal to a 25 per cent reduction in bills for the largest consumers, such as smelters. Depending on how much Ontario’s hydro rates rise, that could soon be not enough to entice business of that size to set up shop in Ontario. Questions also remain in the northern business community about the power needed to serve the Ring of Fire area, and whether there will be enough when and if the area comes alive. The Thunder Bay Generating Station, which traditionally provided excess power to the region, is currently idled after its conversion from coal to natural gas was stopped, with no official word yet on its eventual fate. Chiarelli stated that despite the status of the Thunder Bay plant, “we’ve given (the region) complete assurance in principle that they will have power when they need it.” A number of solutions being worked on in northwestern See LOCAL, page 42

Local business owner talks about impact of rising rates Continued from page 41

Ontario, said Chiarelli, including new transmission lines from Wawa, new generation planned for the Dryden area, and the restarting of the converted Atikokan Generating Station, located about 200 kilometres west of Thunder Bay. Mining and manufacturing are but one part of the economic story in Ontario. Serving smaller areas and moving smaller amounts of product, small and medium-sized businesses are numerous and employ many. Businesses that use less than 250,000 kilowatt hours of power a year are billed for their energy consumption no different than residents. Ottawa businessman Jim Sourges finds himself in a difficult situation, as his stockand-trade is the very appliances and fixtures that consume that pricey electricity. As owner of the Electrical & Plumbing Store’s two Ottawa locations, Sourges knows all too well the impact of rising hydro rates and has little recourse in stemming the rising tide of energy bills. He’s replaced all of the bulbs in his showrooms with compact

fluorescent lightbulbs and has darkened the chandelier showcase as much as possible, but a storefront business that has to be open during peak hours can’t do much to mitigate costs before staff or the customers become affected. “Hydro rates have continued to climb over time, especially with time-of-use billing,” said Sourges, whose father founded the store’s original Ogilvie Road location 32 years ago. “With us, given that we can’t control time-of-use or our hours of operation we can’t do all of the (conservation tips) the government proposes. We signed a fixed-rate contract, but we’re probably paying the same as if it were time-of-use.” contracts

Signing a contract with a third-party energy retailer is the single, only option for small business owners in areas where time-of-use rates are in effect, and the savings are minimal. Being in the business for so long, Sourges knows that eventually his business and others like it will be forced to pass

The Port Alma Wind Farm in Chathan-Kent, Ontario, contains 44 wind turbines, capable of producing an output of 101 MW. The site went online in 2008. High rates paid to wind producers is one of the reasons behindthe skyrocketing electricity rates in Ontario. the cost of the power bill on to customers. Some current business owners in his line of work could easily be swayed into storing merchandise in a darkened warehouse and handling sales through a website, thus eliminating staff members. “There are ramifications to rising hydro rates that aren’t as obvious as saying ‘I’m going to have to pay a few hundred a month more,’” said Sourges. “If you’re a manufacturer

and your location isn’t important, if you find a place that costs 20 per cent less, you go there. If you’re serving a local market you might have to change your type of operation, fire a few staff or increase the cost to the buyer. Ultimately the customer pays in the end – it doesn’t matter what type of business. No one likes to hear that, but that’s the reality.” For his Northside Road location in Bells Corners, Sourges

estimates his electricity costs have risen by $1,500 a month in the past five years. Sourges, who serves as chair of the board of the Bells Corners Business Improvement Area, said the small- and medium-sized business that make up a community could use some form of relief. He stressed that he understood the need for regular grid improvements and maintenance, and knows such work isn’t cost neutral, but did say that businesses need to be able to stay competitive in the marketplace. Without this, businesses both large and small will suffer, harming both the economy and the province’s future. “In most business, when you buy in bulk, you get a deal. With a regulated monopoly like hydro, it doesn’t work that way. At a minimum, larger power users should be able to deal with lower than existing kilowatt hour rates.” Despite continued sluggish, marginal growth in the province’s economy, there has been little word from Premier Kathleen Wynne on how the provincial government plans to turn the situation around. That could change after Finance

Minister Charles Sousa delivers his fall economic statement, scheduled for Nov. 7. In his previous statement from May of this year, Sousa said the province is on track to eliminate the budget deficit – pegged at $11.7 billion for 2013-14 – by the 2017-18 fiscal year. During that time, however, the province’s debt is expected to rise, hitting $303.9 billion in 2015-16, according to the 2013 Ontario budget. These forecasts could change, especially if economic growth projections aren’t realized. It remains to be seen what changes will be found in the province’s long-term energy plan, the contents of which also have a bearing on the economic future of the province. The recent announcement that Ontario would not be moving forward with a planned build of new nuclear generators – instead relying on a refurbishment of existing reactors – is an indication the Liberal government might be recognizing the potential economic impact of rising rates.

Opposition criticizes Green Energy Act Continued from page 42

(under which wind and solar generation are managed and paid for) and the contract with Green Energy Act partner Samsung reinforce this notion. The early estimates of long-term rate increases needed to accommodate grid improvements and the rollout of the act were seriously underestimated. As well, the projected power needs for the province in the near future were overestimated. The Independent Electrical System Operator projects a 0.5 per cent decline in energy demand in 2013, and a 0.1 per cent decline in 2014, a situation that was not envisioned at the end of the last decade. The opposition parties, as well as the Green party of Ontario, have all criticized elements of the Green Energy Act, while the province’s auditor general slammed the Liberals in the wake of the 2011 election for not performing a cost analysis of the act before moving forward with it. A report published in June of this year, however, sheds some light on where rates could go in the near future. Ontario Electricity Options Comparison: Illustrating the Economics of Ontario Energy Supply Options is a report by Strategic Policy Economics commissioned by the Power Worker’s Union, which representing Ontario Hydro workers. The paper seeks to explore the electricity rate impact and overall economic impact of policies stemming from the previous long term energy plan, giving two projections going forward – one where investments in nuclear generation are continued while investments in wind energy are curtailed and the other where nuclear investments curtailed and wind energy targets laid out in the Green Energy Act are continued. “Many arguments support that high costs will arise and other arguments suggest that cost growth will be moderate,” the report states, referring to assumptions based on the 2010 long term energy plan. Stating that its estimates are accurate to between two and three per cent, the report determined that under the 2010 plan, the average residen-

tial electricity bill would rise by 52 per cent between 2011 and 2017 (prior to the addition of the 10 per cent Ontario Clean Energy Benefit), leading to household monthly bills of $865 once the benefit is removed in January 2016. Between 2011 and 2024, residential rates would rise by 75 per cent. Under the same plan, industrial rate impacts would increase 34 per cent between 2012 and 2017, tripling the gap that already exists between Ontario rates and the U.S. average. The report found increases between now and 2017 stemmed from investments in renewable energy generation. To what degree recent changes made to the energy file have changed these projections is unknown, but the study’s findings casts some doubt on Chiarelli’s assertion that the province is starting to “turn the corner” on rate increases. As for the economic projections based on wind and/or nuclear investments, the report takes a longer view, looking ahead to 2035 when wind installations procured under the Green Energy Act will have reached the end of their lives. The study found that by retaining investments in nuclear while reducing investments in wind generation, Ontario stood to receive $56 billion in direct benefits to its economy – $27 billion in savings to ratepayers and $29 billion in direct investment. “Reducing the nuclear footprint in favour of the retained wind scenario would result in increased costs for electricity ratepayers, lower investment in Ontario’s economy and would increase GHG emissions,” the report states. A retained wind scenario would also see 313 million tonnes of GHG emissions between 2014 and 2035, instead of the 206 million tonnes under a reduced wind scenario. For a plan that was introduced as being the saviour of the environment while being easy on wallets, the Green Energy Act has proven to be something far different. And, while the economy struggles for momentum, it is clear the province needs to recognize all factors that can impact the economy, including energy.

Dust is kicked up from a field tilled in Dunrobin. Grain farmers and beekeepers agree neonicotinoids are killing insects in mass numbers. They disagree whether “planter dust” is doing it or the crops – contaminated throughout – are poisoning them during pollination.

Health Canada proposes better labelling on insecticides Continued from page 15

Health Canada regulators have proposed better labelling on insecticides and require farmers to implement safer seed planting practices. Those moves aren’t enough for beekeepers, who are fewer in number and therefore hold less clout over lawmakers. Another year of mass die-offs could harbour untold calamity for many common foods such as: apples, onions, pears, beans, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, common peppers, eggplant, tomatoes and much more. However, at this stage it doesn’t

seem those welding power are willing to move any time soon. CarletonMississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren is a farmer, and sold seed to farmers throughout the region. He lauds the effectiveness of neonicotinoids while reserving judgement until further study is done. “It is commonly used on corn seed to protect against insects and disease. It does work. It helps farmers,” MacLaren said. “Canada has very stringent rules about pesticides.” Still, if further studies show them to be harmful to bees or other animals, MacLaren said he has no problem with an outright ban.

Consider Adopting a Special Needs Pet they need nothing more than a little extra time, patience and love from their owners. Potential adopters may be reluctant to bring Gunner home because of his special needs designation. He has a condition called recurrent conjunctivitis with chronic ocular discharge, which just means the tissue around his eyes gets inflamed. This is usually caused by a viral infection and it’s likely that once his stress level is reduced in his forever home, his immune system will get stronger and he will be less prone to these eye infections. Gunner loves to curl up on your lap for ear scratches and pets. He gets along well with other cats but prefers not to share his home with dogs as they scare him. He is also trained to walk on leash!

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

If you’re thinking about adopting a special needs pet, here are some considerations: • What are the circumstances surrounding the animal’s needs? • Might there be additional costs? Are there special medications, treatments or food your pet will require? • Can you accommodate the animal’s need in your lifestyle? Special needs pets might need medications at certain times of the day or particular living arrangements. Visit the OHS Adoption Centre at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. to find your perfect companion. Consider adopting a special needs pet! Have you ever adopted a special needs pet? Tell us about your experience on our Facebook page at Facebook/ OttawaHumane.


The Ottawa Humane Society is often full of people in the community cat rooms, playing with the kittens. Just across the way, animals like sevenyear-old Gunner the cat watch all the attention bestowed upon those tiny bundles of fur. Though they’d also make wonderful and loving pets, being a little older or having a “special need” means Gunner and others aren’t always the recipients of the same kind of interest. Gunner has been at the OHS since February. People visit, perhaps take a look, but then pass him up for a younger, smaller cat or kitten. It’s time for Gunner and the other older or special needs animals to find loving forever homes to call their own. Special needs pets may require medication, a special diet, or extra post-adoption vet care. In some cases,

Don’t race ahead to get the early advantage this week, Aries. Practice patience in all that you do this week, and you may find greater success. Taurus, there is a high level of uncertainty in your life right now, so it is best to take a conservative approach regarding your finances. Take big decisions seriously. Keep your options open, as things look promising this week, Gemini. Many things will catch your eye, but you will have to make some tough decisions. Cancer, your career takes an unexpected turn that leads you in an exciting new direction. But these changes may take a few weeks or even months to fully develop. Leo, you may have your sights set on an exotic vacation, but you just don’t have the money to make it happen right now. Save for your dream getaway or take a quick jaunt to recharge. Virgo, you may prefer clearly defined relationships, but this week someone comes into your life who you just can’t read. This person makes a lasting impression.

Libra, although your vision for the future is grand, you may not know how to execute your rise to success right now. Find a mentor who can show you the ropes. Scorpio, you may not have the time to be a shoulder to cry on this week, but a trusted confidante will need your assistance. Take the time out for this special friend. You are not in complete control of your feelings this week, Sagittarius. Make a concerted effort to control your emotions when conflict arises. Capricorn, surprises are coming your way. Though you may want to control the situation, you have to sit back and let the chips fall where they may. Aquarius, don’t allow daydreaming to distract you from the tasks at hand. Distractions will only derail your plans, so do your best to keep them at a minimum. Pisces, an ongoing issue must be addressed this week. Proscratination will only delay the inevitable, so tackle this issue head-on.

This weeks puzzle answers in next weeks issue

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!
