News - A grandmother and her three grandchildren will be full of warmth this holiday season thanks to Habitat for Humanity. The National Capital Region Habitat for Humanity celebrated the completion of its latest build in the province by handing over the keys to a semi-detached Orléans home on Nantes Street to Ida Kakekagumick on Nov. 29. An information technology maintenance worker at the Miniswashin Lodge, Kakekagumick said receiving a home from Habitat felt like winning the lottery. “I’m still walking around in a daze,” Kakekagumick said. Her three grandchildren, Gage, Erica and Donovan moved into the home on the Dec. 1 weekend. “We are acting cool, but my God, we are jumping for joy inside,” she said. Although she admits the move is a little scary, Kakekagumick said she is up for the challenge. See HABITAT, page 2

Habitat for Humanity celebrates 42nd Ottawa home opening Continued from page 1

The family has rented in Nepean since 2007. “I am going to start visiting the stores, and I have heard there is a great community centre down the road,” she said. The home will be purchased by Kakekagumick, who is an Ojibwa-Cree from Northern Ontario. The grandmother, who has legal guardianship of her three grandchildren, said she always wanted to have a home where her grandchildren could grow up without the worry of having to move from place to place anymore. “Never in a million years did I think that I would be standing here, getting a key to my new home,” she said. Her two grandsons attended the event, smiling as bright as their grandmother when Habitat executive George Hendry handed over the key to the home. This is the 42nd home Habitat has built in the Ottawa region over the past 20 years. Homes are built by volunteers with the help of company sponsorships and donations and sold to selected low-income working families, with an interest-free, longterm mortgage. Families are selected based on certain criteria: total family income is between $41,735 and $62,576; they must be Ca-

nadian citizens or permanent residents; they must be living somewhere that doesn’t meet the family’s needs; they must have steady employment, but not able to afford or obtain a conventional mortgage; and they must be willing to contribute 500 hours of sweat equity to help build the home, participate in other Habitat projects and community activities. The Kakekagumick family managed to fulfil the “sweat equity” hours by the children earning 50 hours for straight A’s in school, as well as Kakekagumick volunteered both time in Habitat’s retail store, Restore, every Saturday as well as helping with the construction of her own home. The celebration at the new home included an official ribbon cutting, speeches from Kakekagumick and Habitat as well as a barbecue donated by Enbridge, a sponsor for the home. The Kakekagumick family also received a number of gifts from area residents, local schools and organizations and Habitat. A gift from Kakekagumick’s partner family offered the family both practical gifts and wisdom. • A loaf of bread, for the family to never have empty shelves • A candle, for light to always shine on the Ka-

ing in the Avalon area, the organization had plans to build 11 stacked townhomes. Portobello South Community Association president Pamela Moss said initial response from area residents was negative because of the size and scale of the proposed development. “A lot of people felt it didn’t fit in with the community,” Moss said. The president of the association said the group worked with Habitat, holding information sessions and consulta-

tions about the building plans, with the end result being Habitat scaled back. “We wanted the homes to fit into the neighbourhood, and for the families to feel a part of the neighbourhood,” Moss said. “The new designs reflect that.” The association volunteered time and help during the construction of the new home. As a welcome gift, Moss handed the Kakekagumick family a gift basket full of fresh fruit and another full of home necessities.

“We want to welcome you with open arms to the neighbourhood,” Moss said to the Kakekagumick family. “Anything that you guys need, we will be here for you.” So far, Habitat has built three of the nine homes. The Caceres family moved into a bungalow at the corner of Nantes Street and Portobello Boulevard and a single mother with her two children will live in the other half of the semi-detached building beside Kakekagumick.

We want to have a community where we can live, work and play, and this is the step in the right direction.” Crossan added that the development’s proximity to the Trim Road park-and-ride makes the proposal even more alluring to potential businesses. The full application proposal is available at ottawa.ca. Comments regarding the proposal must be provided by Dec. 23.

Fake call scam pulls on the heartstrings of victims Continued from page 1

“I was so emotional I didn’t catch onto what was going on.” The man named a store in Orléans where Ginette could wire $1,900 to him so her daughter could be released. “It sounded so real,” Ginette said, her voice breaking as she recalled how the phone call affected her. “It frightened me half to death.” While the man was still on the phone, Ginette quickly sent

she is not identifiable.

a text message to her daughter on her cellphone and asked her to call her in Orléans. By the time they connected on the telephone and Ginette realized there was no emergency, the male caller had hung up the phone. No money was transferred in this case but Ginette wants other people to be aware of the scam. She also reported the call to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. The Orléans News is withholding Ginette’s last name so

Ottawa Valley Tours

TALK TO YOUR FAMILY

Staff at the anti-fraud centre said the fake call experienced by Ginette is all too common and can come from anywhere in the world. “Sadly it’s a very successful scam,” said the centre’s senior call-taker supervisor Daniel Williams. He said grandparents are frequent targets and their names may simply be picked out of

the phonebook. “Their heart-strings are being pulled,” Williams said of the seniors who may receive a call and believe a young member of their family is in trouble. He added that the caller may ask the grandparent not to tell their “parents” because they don’t want to get in trouble. That may deter the grandparent from checking to see if the call is legitimate. Williams suggests families discuss what to do in emergencies so they have a plan. He

said one person can act as the keeper of contact information for the extended family and be the first point of contact when real problems arise. Family members can then call them to confirm if the unexpected caller is being truthful. He also encouraged anyone who receives a call to report it to the anti-fraud centre and their local police, whether or not they’ve lost money. Information the centre and police receive about the changing false

stories and false names callers use can help. “At the very least it makes the bad guys do more work,” Williams said of the details they receive about the scam calls. WAYS TO REPORT FRAUD

New best friend for Canadian speed skater Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – They’ve been together less than a month, and already they’ve become the best of friends. Orleans resident Kevin Frost brought his new guide dog, Lewis, home on Nov. 29 after three weeks of intense training at the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind headquarters in Manotick. Frost is visually and hearing impaired. Until last December, he had a black lab guide dog named Nemo for nine years, but she had to be put down. Frost waited a full year before he could be paired with a new dog, but he said the wait was worth it. “I was one of the lucky ones with Lewis,” Frost said. “He’s a pretty special dog.” The 20-month old yellow LabraEmma Jackson/Metroland Kevin Frost sits with his new guide dog, Lewis, after bringing him home to his Orleans residence. Frost is dor retriever was settling into his new visually and hearing impaired and waited a full year before he could replace his first guide dog, Nemo, who home, never going much farther from his partner than his dog bed across died last December. the living room. Occasionally the 72pound dog would come and rest his large head on Frost’s lap.

Frost also wants to develop his foundation, the Impaired Speed Skating Association of Canada, which aims to help young impaired athletes get involved in speed skating.

No shocking new developments

I

ntensification is still the buzz word for development in Ottawa, so we all better get used to it. The city recently approved a swath of plans that will guide the city’s growth and development over the next two decades. Council gave the thumbs up to five master plans, including the Official Plan, the infrastructure master plan and the transportation master plan. The city said it will encourage intensification, not exactly a new concept, but one that usually encourages heated debate when development applications are discussed at community associations and at planning committee. Yet for some reason, it sometimes comes as a shock to residents when a developer takes the city at its word and proposes to build a high-rise or mid-rise in an established community. But it’s not willy-nilly development.The official plan encourages intensification in specific areas of the city, namely rural areas, villages, mixed-use centres and public transit stations. The plan requires development to fit the character of the community. Keep in mind, a developer can always apply to build a large building in an area the city may not prefer. All it requires is a little rezoning – and if the city objects, it risks fighting an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board, and Ottawa hasn’t exactly racked

up a stellar record fighting those appeals, especially when the development requests are supported by the city’s own staff. We can only hope this type of unwanted development requests are few and far between, as the official plan offers preferred areas of the city for intensification. Residents should check out the planned extensions to the Transitway, as well as the future routes of the light-rail transit system, which will be built over the coming decades. Those plans will give a good indication what areas developers are targeting for intensification. The city’s Official Plan aims to promote smart growth, for instance, by discouraging urban sprawl, a costly phenomenon for taxpayers, as it requires providing roads, water pipes, storm water management and other services to previously undeveloped areas. Smart growth means encouraging public transit and reducing the number of motorists clogging our roads. The city’s master plans for growth offer solace for residents by giving them the relative certainty of where development can occur, and what type of development, with rules governing the heights and designs of buildings. To avoid unwelcome shocks, residents may want to check out the plans, specifically in areas near where they live.

Who can save downtown? Maybe nobody

L

ast time we looked, the cinemas at the World Exchange Plaza were doomed. No one was happy about that, apparently not even the people who were doing the dooming. But, as the current motto of the hopeless goes, it is what it is. The movie theatres at World Exchange are nice and, more important, nicely located. They have developed a bit of a niche following by blending in artier fare with the usual mainstream stuff. But one movie company decided to vacate the premises when its lease expires, and while another movie company has taken over the lease, there are no guarantees that it will continue to show movies in 2014. Meanwhile, the owners of the building are thinking about converting the theatres to office space. Yes, office space with sloping floors. But it is what it is. Ottawa city council has expressed concern, with various councillors asking city staff to explore all options, and noting rather pointedly that the city has been helpful to the World Exchange people in the past. It sure would be nice if someone with a sense of social responsibility and civic pride — perhaps even the current owners

It takes all the fingers of one hand to list the downtown theatres that have disappeared in the last two decades — Capital Square, Place de Ville, Elgin, Nelson, Somerset, and there others that go further back. That can’t have helped our downtown life. True, the suburbanization of just about everything has been a feature of our existence for some time. A lot of shopping is now done away from the core; entertainment complexes, not to mention sports facilities, have moved a distance away. People are getting used to heading away from the centre. But that doesn’t make it ideal. It means a lot of driving, a lot of traffic, a lot of oil consumption, a lot of greenhouse gases. And is it

not also true that one of the aims of our city government has been to encourage population growth in the centre, getting people to move downtown in a bid to make the city more liveable, less dependent on the automobile? It can’t help this goal if the people who move downtown then have to get into their cars and drive for half an hour if they want to see a movie. (That is, a mainstream movie, because the Bytowne, on Rideau Street, does a good job of serving those whose taste in films leans to the less commercial.) And it’s not much in the way of consolation that a cinema is maybe going to open at the new Lansdowne development. That’s more than walking distance for many downtown people. So they will drive their cars to Lansdowne, giving the Glebe just what it needs: more cars. The situation is so dire that people have even begun to use what I call the G8 argument, to wit: “What a disgrace that in the capital of a G8 nation you can’t even find a movie theatre in the downtown!” And you know, that is a persuasive argument. But what can anybody do about it? Business will do what business will do, like it or not. City council can plead, citizens can mutter. But no one can force a cinema to stay

open. It is what it is. This is probably the kind of thing Justin Trudeau was getting at when he made his much ridiculed comments about his “level of admiration” for the Chinese government and that fact that a dictatorship can do things in a hurry. There’s something in that. If we had the Chinese government here and the Chinese government wanted there to be a movie theatre in downtown Ottawa, there would be one and we could all enjoy attending it. Of course, we’d also have the Chinese government.

During the holidays, remember food insecurity affects us all

them even a percentage point of the almost $2,000 the big banks estimate you’ll spend this Christmas. Long term, it may be the biggest economic difference you can make.

however, food banks remain a necessary Band-Aid. So when you’re heading to the mall this week to find that perfect gift for a loved one, think about swinging by your local food bank to offer

That food banks have grown and poverty continues to increase at the wealthiest time in our history suggests a disturbing dichotomy. Until we have a more comprehensive strategy in place,

Capital Muse nomic indicator of food insecurity in Canada ... is household income,” the report says. Food insecurity is not only influenced by a household’s ability to pay for food, but is also affected by a lack of “physical access to adequate food resources,” lack of understanding about nutrition (food literacy) and the inability to access culturallyappropriate food, write the authors of Enough for All: Household Food Security in Canada, published by CFIC in August. Food insecurity, the authors write, “can lead to serious health implications.” And the impact of malnutrition affects more than just physical health, but also mental health and well-being, and our economic health. “Adults living in foodinsecure households with lower nutrient intakes are more inclined to suffer from poor health and develop more chronic diseases and mental health disorders,” write the authors. “Food insecurity can lead to negative psychosocial outcomes in children, while teenagers are at risk of suffering from depression, social anxiety, and suicide.” In other words, food insecurity affects all of us, regardless of whether we are directly impacted or not. Although food security strategies exist at national, provincial, municipal and community levels, more “That was way to easy!”

needs to be done. Fortunately, the CFIC is working with government, business, academics and community leaders to develop a blueprint for a national food security policy. They anticipate the release of The Canadian Food Strategy in March, which is expected to offer some comprehensive ideas for governments, industry and communities. It will include implementing a national school nutrition program, supporting collaboration among stakeholders to increase access to food; increasing support for those who are isolated; incentives for volunteerism in food security initiatives; better education to help people become more food literate; better public transit affordability and support for low-income households; partnerships with agricultural to keep food security at the forefront; investing in strategies to help those in poverty and continuous tracking to figure out what works best. One thing is certain, however, there really is no room for complacency around poverty issues from anyone at any level. Food Banks Canada estimates there will be more than 14 million individual visits to food banks in 2013, by the time the numbers are tabulated. Food banks were only ever intended to offer a temporary solution to those hit by recession in the early 1980s.

ccording to an annual Bank of Montreal survey, the average Canadian will spend $1,810 on the holidays, including travel, gifts and food. That’s an increase of 12 per cent from the average $1,610 we spent last year. At the same time some of us are spending more than a mortgage payment to get through the holidays, however, more than 800,000 people will be heading to their local food banks to try to scrounge together enough to eat this month. The number of people reliant on food banks has increased by 23 per cent since the recession hit in 2008, according to Hungercount, the annual report published by Food Banks Canada. The authors cite a number of reasons for the increase, including loss of blue-collar jobs, lack of support for affordable housing, a cap of $626 per month for a single person on welfare and our increased reliance on lowpaying, temporary jobs in the service sector. The stats are also skewed in particular demographics – 11 per cent of food bank users are Aboriginal; 11 per cent are recent immigrants; and 25 per cent are singleparent families. More than one-third (36 per cent) of the 833,098 monthly food bank users in Canada are children. It’s not surprising that approximately two million people in Canada self-report food insecurity, according to a report by the Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for Food in Canada (CFIC). One thing that makes food security such a slippery fish for policy-makers is the multi-faceted root causes. “The greatest socio-eco-

Truck tunnel deserves consideration To the editor,

Re: “Tunnel study not worth money,” Editorial, Nov. 28. I read your editorial with a great deal of interest. I am a member of a group called Sustainable Solutions/ Solutions Durables – www.ssd-ottawa.ca. We have been involved the interprovincial crossings study from the beginning of Phase 1. We were also active members of the NCC’s public advisory group on this study. There is no doubt that the interprovincial crossings study was extremely rigorous. But what became clear over the course of the study was that its results were largely constrained by the wording of the original terms of reference and that any healthy discussion about the shortcomings in those terms of reference was vigourously shut down by the study team. In our opinion this was a large contributing factor to the way in which the study ran into a dead end. In recent communications, NCC

officials continued to insist on the importance of providing more interprovincial car capacity to meet growth in automobile traffic. Solving the region’s truck problem has always appeared to be a secondary priority. We would contend that the NCC’s proposed bridge at Kettle Island would also have left this growing downtown problem unresolved, while at the same time spreading it to other areas of Ottawa and Gatineau. Here are some key points which Sustainable Solutions/Solutions Durables would like to emphasize: • According to the study results, the bridge would only attract approximately 30 per cent of the trucks from the King Edward-Rideau-WallerNicholas (KERWN) corridor. If the truck traffic growth trend continues, there would be the same number of trucks on that corridor by the year 2031 as there is today. Investing over $1 billion only to find ourselves back to where we are today is not a very attractive proposition. Thus remov-

ing 30 per cent of trucks on KERWN is not an effective solution. • At the June 5 transportation committee meeting, the study consultant referred to the 2002 Delcan report on the King Edward revitalization project in which the cost of a tunnel was found to be significantly less than the cost of the proposed interprovincial bridge. The 2002 figures used were updated to 2013 numbers. And the tunnel removes significantly more trucks off the KERWN corridor. • In 2008 the City of Gatineau voted unanimously to request that the City of Ottawa maintain the KERWN corridor open to commercial truck traffic. That same motion was presented once again to the Gatineau council in 2013. The results were the same. In other words, Gatineau did not want all the trucks on Montée Paiement. We are not aware of any clear acknowledgement of this by the study team or the NCC. • According to the 2011 origindestination survey, peak hour inter-

provincial car traffic has declined by 13 per cent since 2005. This was not highlighted in the NCC study. There is a growing body of evidence (backed up by actual observed data) that the projections for growth in peak hour automobile traffic used to justify road expansions and the proposed interprovincial bridge are far in excess of what they should be. It is entirely possible that future automobile traffic demand could be met by the current bridges, especially with an increase in public transit use. • At the June 5 City of Ottawa transportation committee meeting, the study consultant confirmed that a bridge would in fact reduce public transit ridership. This situation is unacceptable to both the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau. Increased focus on public transit is part of the cities’ transportation strategy. David Jeanes of Transport Action Canada, when asked which would be the best bridge corridor from a public transit perspective, he aptly replied to the transportation committee meeting, “If you wanted to increase interprovincial public transit ridership, you wouldn’t build any of these bridg-

es.” • At that meeting committee members overwhelmingly supported a need for a comprehensive study of a tunnel under downtown Ottawa linking the Macdonald-Cartier Bridge to Highway 417 as a possible solution to the truck problem. In fact, the recent motion put forward by Coun. Mathieu Fleury to the transportation committee received the same level of support. The joint announcement by the Ontario minister of transport and the mayor of Ottawa underlines the importance of determining the benefits of a tunnel to resolve the truck problems that have plagued this city for nearly five decades. • The NCC has been quoted in the media as saying that a tunnel was considered but found to be too expensive and that such a solution was “simplistic.” In fact, no comprehensive analysis of the tunnel option was undertaken as part of the study. Rather, a five page memo was written referring to earlier studies. • In your editorial, you raise the issue of dangerous goods as a reason for discounting the tunnel option. Sending dangerous goods through Ottawa’s downtown or through residential areas adjoining Montée Paiement and the Aviation Parkway hardly seems preferable. Safely transporting dangerous goods is a challenging problem for any solution to the interprovincial truck problem. In fact, closing the tunnel to other traffic for a limited time period during the night hours, while restricting tunnel traffic to trucks with dangerous goods, may be one of the safest options. It should be noted that only 5 per cent of the truck traffic carries dangerous good. Your editorial recommends that Fleury should be encouraging the province to consider a bridge further east. During Phase 1 of the study, 10 corridors were examined, including five east of the KERWN corridor. Three of those have been studied more than once and none of them will effectively reduce truck traffic. Are you recommending that the bridge should be moved to Orléans? That is a completely unacceptable solution to the residents of this community. The mayor of Ottawa has publicly stated that he favours looking at innovative alternatives such as the downtown tunnel to solve the truck problem on KERWN. Other cities such as Miami, Dublin and Seattle have built, or are in the process of building, downtown tunnels to solve precisely the problem of trucks funneling through downtown cores. It is time for the NCC to stop focusing single mindedly on a new bridge and to take an unbiased look at all the possible approaches to solving the challenges of the interprovincial movement of people and goods. We are pleased that the provincial and municipal governments are working together to find an effective and realistically achievable solution. Sustainable Solutions/Solutions Durables is prepared to work with all stakeholders to find an effective solution that is a win-win for everyone. Louis Caron Orléans

Fake calls pulls on the heartstrings of victims Continued from page 1

“I was so emotional I didn’t catch onto what was going on.” The man named a store in Orléans where Ginette could wire $1,900 to him so her daughter could be released. “It sounded so real,” Ginette said, her voice breaking as she recalled how the phone call affected her. “It frightened me half to death.” While the man was still on the phone, Ginette quickly sent

a text message to her daughter on her cellphone and asked her to call her in Orléans. By the time they connected on the telephone and Ginette realized there was no emergency, the male caller had hung up the phone. No money was transferred in this case but Ginette wants other people to be aware of the scam. She also reported the call to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. The Orléans News is withholding Ginette’s last name so

she is not identifiable. TALK TO YOUR FAMILY

Staff at the anti-fraud centre said the fake call experienced by Ginette is all too common and can come from anywhere in the world. “Sadly it’s a very successful scam,” said the centre’s senior call-taker supervisor Daniel Williams. He said grandparents are frequent targets and their names may simply be picked out of

the phonebook. “Their heart-strings are being pulled,” Williams said of the seniors who may receive a call and believe a young member of their family is in trouble. He added that the caller may ask the grandparent not to tell their “parents” because they don’t want to get in trouble. That may deter the grandparent from checking to see if the call is legitimate. Williams suggests families discuss what to do in emergencies so they have a plan. He

said one person can act as the keeper of contact information for the extended family and be the first point of contact when real problems arise. Family members can then call them to confirm if the unexpected caller is being truthful. He also encouraged anyone who receives a call to report it to the anti-fraud centre and their local police, whether or not they’ve lost money. Information the centre and police receive about the changing

false stories and false names callers use can help. “At the very least it makes the bad guys do more work,” Williams said of the details they receive about the scam calls. WAYS TO REPORT FRAUD

The politics of traffic calming Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - City councillors will try – again – to take the politics out of local traffic issues. That was the direction set on Dec. 4, when the transportation committee discussed the results of Coun. Peter Hume’s local Alta Vista safe streets project, which he funded using his office budget. A report from city staff indicates the project was “clearly successful.” Two radar speed-display signs Hume purchased and placed at 35 locations around the ward showed the majority motorists travel well within the speed limit as they pass the signs. “It gives residents a perception of what 40 kilometres an hour feels like,” said Phil Landry, the city’s manager of traffic management. Three streets – Coronation and Kilborn avenues and Saunderson Drive – had 1.2-metre long speed limits painted onto the road. On Coronation, that led to more than a six per cent drop in people speeding over the 50 kilometres per hour limit and an average speed reduction of two kilometres per hour along that stretch. The figure was five kilometres per hour less for Saunderson and six kilometres per hour less on Kilborn, meaning 72 per cent of motorists complied with the speed limit on that street – up from 48 per cent the year before. Three new locations will get speed limits painted on them in Alta Vista Ward in 2014. Hume will also add another speed display sign to his of-

fice’s roster. Prompted by Innes. Coun. Rainer Bloess, other committee members agreed the issue of local traffic calming should be discussed as part of next year’s city budget. Councillors and staff can learn from Hume’s strategy, said RideauVanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. “Maybe he can teach us how to find money in our budgets, too,” he joked. Finding money to address the endless stream of traffic complaints councillors receive is a reoccurring council conversation. “This is not really the intent of our office budgets,” Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley said. Council discussed creating a $30,000 traffic management fund for each ward in 2012, but instead decided on a one-time citywide $2.5 million fund to address a backlog of problems. Hume spent $1,968 of his office budget on the project in 2013, plus $2,500 in 2012 to buy speed display boards, which he assigns one of his staff members to move around once a week for half a day. Other councillors have purchased similar boards, which measure how fast passing motorists are going and display the speed on an electronic sign. COUNCIL JEALOUSY

Speeding and traffic calming are easily the topics councillors’ offices receive the most calls about, Hume said. Councillors say taking money meant for office operations and using

it to put up things like speed display boards is a quick and effective way to show voters they are responding to those concerns. It’s seen as a quick win, Fleury said. “It is political because there are people in communities who are involved and want to see progress,” he said. “You get your political win in your community.” Fleury said some councillors have more flexibility in their budgets to be able to respond directly to those concerns. The efficacy of those responses is questionable, too, Fleury said. For instance, if a councillor is successful in getting the city to install reduced speed-limit signs, it doesn’t mean drivers will slow down. The same residents could be back lobbying for speed bumps a year later, Fleury said. “It’s something that always runs away from you,” he said. “How much of it is a solution versus a band-aid?” All 22 councillors get the same amount of money for their office budget - $241,508 annually – but some councillors have other pressures such as high resident call volumes that put pressure on the councillor to put the money towards additional staff or other priorities. “There is a form of jealously there,” Fleury said. Councillors, including Fleury, agreed that the solution needs to be something that combines staff expertise and evidence-based approach with councillors’ local knowledge of the issues brought up by residents.

Emergency planning is crucial for those with special needs News - While disasters and emergencies affect everyone, the impact on people with special needs is often compounded by their reliance on electrical power, elevators, and accessible transportation – all of which can be compromised in emergency situations. Public Safety Canada offers these tips for seniors and people with special needs: • Create a personal support network of at least three people that can help you in an emergency situation. Ensure they are aware of your needs, such as prescription medication and how to

operate any special needs equipment. • Make an emergency contact list with the names and phone numbers of your personal support network, doctors, neighbours, etc. Keep a copy of this list handy and share it with your support network. • Familiarize yourself with all escape routes and location of emergency doors and exits in your home. • Have a panic button installed in the building where you work or live so that in the event of an emergency you can notify others of your whereabouts and that you

need assistance. • Create a basic emergency kit. A list of kit items is available at www.GetPrepared.ca. • Tailor your kit to meet your needs. You may wish to include things such as: special devices like canes, walkers, lightweight manual wheelchairs, hearing aids, breathing apparatus, blood glucose monitoring device, plus food and other important items for your pet or service animal. • Prescription eyewear and footwear (if required). • Extra supply of medications (if possible) and vitamin supplements. • List of all medical sup-

plies and equipment related to your age or medical condition. • Copies of all medication prescriptions.

• Extra dentures (if required) and cleaner. • Latex-free gloves (to give to anyone providing personal care to you).

News – thousands of Ottawa residents walk, cycle or drive by the Central Experimental Farm Arboretum each day, but how many actually pause to consider its contents? Long-time Arboretum volunteers Richard Hinchcliff and Roman Popadiouk have made it their mission to boost

the profile of – and the public’s appreciation for – the unique plant species that exist in the sprawling botanical refuge. ‘For the Love of Trees’ was written (and photographed) over the course of three years by the two men, and is now on sale in Ottawa. “We’ve always felt people weren’t aware of the amazing collection of trees in the Arbo-

ent varieties or hybrids,” said Hinchcliff. “There are pecan trees – something you’d see in Georgia or Alabama. There are cypress trees, like in the Everglades, and sequoias and redwoods, too. It’s quite fascinating.” Hinchcliff said Popadiouk brought an enormous amount of expertise to the project, thanks to his PHD in Forest Ecology and background of work in the forests of his native Russia. The book complements

another being offered by Experimental Farm enthusiasts. ‘Ottawa’s Farm: A History of the Experimental Farm’ was penned over a 10-year period by Helen Smith and Mary Bramley, describing the creation and evolution of the historic site and those who worked there.

“Unless we consistently build up that natural environment, it’ll be very hard for the existing forests to survive,” he says. “I want to make sure Ontario is a good place for my children and grandchildren to grow up in.” To combat the dwindling forest cover, Trees Ontario has planted over 18 million trees since 2004. This year alone, it has planted almost 3 million trees. Studies suggest one billions trees need to be planted across the province in order to restore forest cover to at least 30 per cent. In the longrun, the organization strives to reach that goal. One billion trees is a lofty goal, but not impossible, Keen says. “It will take time, but we can enhance our collective impact by working more closely together,” he says. “Whether you are providing land to plant trees on, or providing funding to support tree planting, everyone can contribute to ensuring we have a healthy, natural environment for our future.”

Mushrooms boost health Lifestyle - Are you having trouble maintaining a healthy body weight? You are not alone. Almost twothirds of Canadians are either overweight or obese. Finding appealing and effective ways to achieve and maintain a healthy weight is very important, especially this time of year when New Year’s resolutions start to take flight. Being overweight can increase the risk of developing chronic diseases such as, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. Carrying excess weight can put stress on joints causing pain and making it difficult to enjoy daily activities. Eating more fruits and vegetables, including fresh mushrooms, is a tasty way to help you keep your weight in check. Fresh mushrooms can help: Control Your Appetite

• Fresh mushrooms are considered a low glycemic food because they contain very little carbohydrate. That means that they do not raise blood-sugar levels as much as carbohydrate-rich foods, such as bread. • Studies have shown that lowglycemic foods may help control appetite longer than those with a

high-glycemic index. Consume Fewer Calories

• Fresh mushrooms are a perfect choice for reduced calorie diets as they have a high water content, are low in fat and contain some fibre: three factors that help keep you feeling full with fewer calories. Researchers have found that people who eat satisfying portions of foods that have less calories have greater success at weight loss and maintenance. Adding mushrooms makes a difference

City launches one-stop shop for seniors’ services Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - The city launched a one-stop guide to seniors’ services during an information session at the Nepean Sportsplex on Dec. 5. It was the fourth information session on services for older adults hosted by the city in 2013, said chair of the city’s community and protective services committee Coun. Mark Taylor. “There’s an aging population in Ottawa, so there’s a never ending stream of folks becoming seniors,” he said. “It’s easier for us to bring the information out to the community.” The guide for seniors, which is entitled Guide to Services and Programs for Older Adults, is a listing of city services of interest to older adults. It’s available in print or online editions. Taylor said the print edition was going to be made available at the city’s recreation centres and other public facilities with a high senior demographic. “I think people know about the city’s different depart-

cially important now that the cold weather is here. Coun. Tim Tierney, who heads the city’s IT subcom-

mittee, outlined the city’s Join Ottawa online search tool that will allow residents to sign up for a range of city services

offered by the library, public health, parks and recreation and the cultural services department.

The volunteer portal, available at ottawa.ca/volunteer will allow residents to search and apply for all the volunteer opportunities and do training online. The last of the three enhancements will be the older adult portal – which will house the guide for seniors’ services. “These three enhancements are about improving access,” Tierney said. Mayor Jim Watson said the idea for a guide was one of the things that came out of the seniors’ summit held a little more than a year ago. He added it’s important to for the city to gear its services to an aging population. “When I was mayor in the ’90s, I would go to two or three 100th-birthday celebrations a year,” he said. “This year I went to 37, 100th birthday celebrations.” He said the city now offers accessible buses, and is working to create a seniors’ dropin centre at the Walter Baker Sports Centre in Barrhaven. “We have done a lot, but we can continue to do more,” he said.

Winter preparation was a day’s work at the old log house

W

e knew winter was finally closing in around us. The old log house was getting ready for the cold blasts, freezing days and nights, and mountains of snow. Soon the Twenty-Acre Field would be covered, and Father would have to break a track so that we could still get over to our neighbours Uncle Alec and Aunt Bertha Thom’s with the sleigh and our team of horses. Father had to wait for the first big dump of snow, and know that it was going to stay, before he got the outside of the house ready. It would take more than a day, but when he was finished packing snow around the foundation, I was sure the house was warmer. But Mother was convinced nothing could take the chill off the icy floors. Inside, she did all she could to prepare us for the long cold days ahead. Blanket-stitched felt slippers, handmade after Aunt Bertha instructed Mother on how to

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories sew them, were at the ready. All the braided rugs had been taken from under the beds, and laid out all over the house. The front door would not be opened again until spring, regardless of who was calling. In the kitchen, the storm door had been attached in an effort to keep out the cold north winds that always seemed to rattle the windows as it swept across the yard and hit our house with force. Mother encouraged us, once the snow was there to stay, to enter the house through the summer kitchen. We were expected to stomp our feet thoroughly on the way in, and once inside we took off our boots and they were lined up like soldiers on a braided rug beside the wood box next to the Findlay Oval.

We all wore felt insoles, and they were removed and propped against a block of wood to dry out over night. Both the back door and the one coming in from the summer kitchen would have smaller braided rugs rolled tight, and placed tight against the closed doors, in the hope that more of the winter drafts would be kept outside. But the biggest job of all was yet to come. It would take Mother hours. We would go off to Northcote School one morning, and come home to see every window downstairs plugged tight with worn-out work socks and strips of cloth from the rag bag. Using a butcher knife to cram the strips into the window frame, the windows were made as wind-proof as

possible. And as tightly as she could cram in the scraps of material, you could run your hand around the window frame and still feel the draft. Once the winter was there to stay, every window pane in the house would frost up and turn white, and we could no longer see outside. That is unless I engaged in one of my favourite pastimes in the winter: taking a fingernail and scratching designs on the frosted pane, or holding my thumb in the one spot until I had created a small hole, through which I could see a smidgen of the outdoors. The only heat in the house came from the kitchen cook stove, and the silver enamelled pipes that snaked through the kitchen, escaped through a hole in the ceiling, going through what passed for a bedroom shared by my sister and me, and finally feeding out into the chimney and the roof of the house. By the time the pipe reached upstairs, there was very little heat left to do much more than take the bitter chill off

the bedroom. Our kitchen would take on a whole new appearance in the winter as well. The old pine table would have to be moved from in front of the window, over to a side wall, the bake table moved to the space left by the pine table, the wood box moved closer to the summer kitchen door, and the creton couch put at an angle. If this grand exchange did not take place, anyone sitting on the bench behind the table for a meal would be chilled to the bone from the window, in spite of the effort Mother put into keeping out winter drafts. During the winter months, prayers were said in the kitchen instead of upstairs. We five children all vied for the spot beside the stove pipe upstairs to change into our pyjamas. It was always a fast change indeed. If it was a bitterly cold night, Mother would have put the hot water bottle in the bed I shared with my sister Audrey, and wrapped bricks which had been heated on the Findlay Oval for the

brothers. It didn’t take long for the bottle or the bricks to cool off, but by the time our bodies had burrowed into the feather tickings between the flannelette sheets, we were as cozy as bugs. The howling winds outside could have been blowing in some other county. The last thing I would hear before I fell asleep would be Father stoking the Findlay Oval. I would hear the lid of the firebox being scraped open, and I could picture in my mind’s eye Father cramming in a log of wood, and I would hear the crackle as it caught fire. I would have the most contented feeling of peace as the heat of the stove rose through the silver pipes in our bedroom. It wouldn’t be a great heat, but I knew it would be enough to keep us from freezing in our beds, and would keep warm our morning clothes which Audrey and I had draped on a chair beside the pipe. I would fall asleep feeling an inner warmth that made everything right in my world.

For the capital portion of the budget, $15.3 million was allocated for projects such as: expanding French in small schools, continued implementation of full day kindergarten and spending for a new school slated to open in the Orléans neighbourhood of Avalon in September 2015. Julian Hanlon, director of

education for the board, said at the annual general meeting that administration will continue to focus on student success. “We continue to see improvements in all key areas – success for students, success for staff and stewardship of resources,” Hanlon said. “And it’s due to the dedication of all of our employees.”

Alison Baizana, who represents the area that corresponds with the municipal wards of Barrhaven and GloucesterSouth Nepean, was chosen as vice-chairwoman. Baizana was elected in 2010. “It will be an honour and a privilege to work with Mr. Hurley, the trustees and the administration of the board to continue on our mission of Catholic Education,” Baizana said.

News - We’ve all heard the saying, “if it looks too good to be true, it probably isâ€?. But when it comes to investments, how do you know what’s too good to be true? “Investment fraud can be devastating ďŹ nancially, but research also shows that it can affect your emotional and physical well-being, says Tom Hamza, president of the Investor Education Fund (IEF). “Knowing how to recognize a scam can help you protect your savings.â€? Here are four signs that an investment might be a scam: • You can make a lot of money with no risk. Investments that are considered low risk typically have returns close to current Guaranteed Investment CertiďŹ cate (GIC) rates. If your expected return is higher than this, you’re taking more risk with your money. • It’s a hot tip or insider information. If the hot tip is false, you will lose your money if you act on it. If the inside information about a public company is true, acting on it would be illegal. Ask yourself why someone would share this information with you, and how they might stand to beneďŹ t. • You’re pressured to buy right away. Scammers know that if you take time to check out the details, you probably won’t fall for their scheme. • The individual or the company are not registered to sell investments. Anyone selling securities or offering investment advice must be registered

Grads defenceman makes all-star grade Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Sports - The Cumberland Grads will be well represented at the third annual Central Canada Cup All-Star Challenge. The Central Canada Hockey League announced its roster on Dec. 2, which includes Grads defenceman David Bennett. “It’s a big honour to be selected,” said Bennett, 18. “I was in the car on the way home from practice actually and my coach called me. “It’s great news. I was really happy when I heard.” Bennett, who lives in Barrhaven, has three goals and 15 assists in 28 games so far this year.

Jessica Cunha/Metroland

Cumberland Grads defenceman David Bennett will play in the third annual Central Canada Cup All-Star Challenge, to be held Dec. 27 to 29 in Quebec. “This is my second year with the Grads,” he said. “We’ve got a good group of young guys.”

Cumberland Grads welcome a new coach Jessica Cunha

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Sports - The Cumberland Grads welcomed a new head coach late last month after firing their previous bench boss.

Jamie Mayo joined the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) team on Nov. 27 as head coach after the owner relieved Nathan Hewitt of his duties. “It’s not very often you get offered a head coach position,” said

Bennett started playing hockey when he was five years old, taking after his older siblings. Now

he’s looking forward to seeing how the league stacks up at the all-star game. “Just seeing what the other leagues are like; the other guys representing the other leagues and how our league will fare against all the other ones and how I will fare against all the other players. And potentially getting seen of course,” he said of the scouts expected to watch the games. “It’s a big opportunity for me and the league and I’m just happy to be a part of it.” Grads new head coach Jamie Mayo said Bennett is a highly skilled defenceman and a deserving player. “We’re honoured he was chosen,” said Mayo, who joined the Grads on Nov. 27. “It’s great for the organiza-

tion to be recognized with the all-star game.” The Central Canada Cup was created in 2011 as an alternative to league-specific all-star games. The tournament features fast-paced games of two 20-minute periods. All-star teams created from junior leagues in central, northern and southern Ontario, as well as Quebec, go head-to-head in the three-day tournament. “This year’s team represents the youngest group the CCHL has ever sent to the event” said league commissioner Kevin Abrams in a news release. “This is further evidence of the growing number of elite young players who are choosing our league to pursue and achieve their athletic and academic goals.” The Central Canada Cup All-Star Challenge will be held Dec. 27 to 29 at the Cité du Sport arena in the Montreal suburb of Terrebonne.

Since hiring Mayo, Cumberland is Mayo, adding it was an opportunity 2-1 as of Dec. 4. They finished 4-1 he couldn’t let pass. Mayo has “a long track record against the Ottawa Senators on Nov. of being involved with successful 29, suffered a defeat to the Hawkesteams,” said the Grads organization bury Hawks 5-1 on Dec. 1 and corralled the Kanata Stallions with a 5-2 in a media release.

Pet Adoptions

Bruno ID#A160725

Meet Bruno (A160725), a very sweet and lovable brindle-coloured male hound mix with boundless energy and endless kisses for you. Bruno is a survivor. The two-year-old tripod spent more than a month in critical care after he had his severely broken leg amputated. He became septic and went into organ failure, nearly dying before several surgeries and treatments saved his life. He’s a Foster Me First adoption because he has a vet appointment at the OHS on Dec. 16. Now all Bruno wants for Christmas is a family to run, play and cuddle with. He’s best suited to an active home with no small kids because having three legs has not slowed him down one bit! For more information on Bruno and all our adoptable animals, stop by the ottawa Humane Society at 245 West Hunt Club rd. Check out our website at ottawahumane.ca to see photos and descriptions of pets up for adoption.

Busting Myths About Holiday Pet Adoptions delivery program, a jolly way to surprise a loved one with a furry friend Yuletide morning. From kittens and rabbits to dogs and hamsters, the OHS is seeking families interested in having volunteer elves drop by with a new four-legged family member early Dec. 25. Regular adoption procedures apply, which means parents would come in to the shelter in advance to fill out an application form, be matched with the right pet, and speak with an adoption counsellor. The Christmas delivery program is busting the myth that pets should not be adopted during the holidays,

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: www.ottawahumane.ca Email: Adoptions@ottawahumane.ca Telephone: (613) 725-3166 x258

the fear being that animals are given as gifts with no thought to the commitment required to be a responsible owner. In fact, if you’ve been thinking about adding a pet to your family, this may be the time to do it, said Bruce Roney, OHS executive director. “Less travelling, smaller families, and time off during the holiday make this the perfect time of year to bond with a new pet,” Roney said. There are limited spaces so contact the OHS by phone at 613725-3166 ext. 258 or visit the shelter at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. to sign up today!

Some people are surprised to hear a humane society advocate holiday adoptions as one of the best times of the year to bring home a new pet. But it’s true! Families are smaller and travelling less. They typically have time off from work and school, enabling some bonding time with the new four-legged friend. Just imagine a Christmas morning where you not only fulfill your children’s holiday wishes but make a homeless animal’s dreams come true too! That’s the idea behind the Ottawa Humane Society’s Christmas
