Community - There was a time when Queenswood Heights had a dozen homes. Young couples could purchase one of the new homes slated for development for $13,000. It’s now a large community in Orléans with several thousand homes, and demographics all over the map. Young and old, anglophone and francophone, residents

who have been there half a century, and brand new residents. All this change has been documented in a book, put together by long time residents, called Queenswood Heights: Memories from Up the Hill. Helen Tweddle lead the charge, alongside the late Lori Nash, 10 years ago. The plan was to put a history book together for Queenswood Heights’ 40th anniversary about a decade ago, but there was an overwhelming amount of informa-

tion and photos. The book, launched earlier this month, presents information and photos from 1962 to present day. Tweddle and Nash had started the project, and were working through information collecting and interviews, on-and-off over the years. Nash passed away in March 2012, before the book was completed.

City acting on promises of land-use certainty Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - City planners are putting pen to paper to make good on what Mayor Jim Watson and planning committee chairman Peter Hume have been promising: consistency and certainty in how neighbourhoods will evolve. A blandly-titled “zoning review” happening right now will ensure that zoning – the details on what kinds of residential, commercial or industrial use can occupy a property and how big the building can be – match what the city has called for in the blueprint of how Ottawa will grow – its Official Plan. It may seem like nitty-gritty bureaucracy to some, but to community groups that have spend almost a decade fighting much-maligned

“spot rezonings” of specific lots, the 30 zoning updates now in the works will be a game changer, Hume said. “It’s supposed to be this way,” Hume said. “But it hasn’t always been this way.” Ottawa got to this point because a political decision was made around eight years ago to flout the provincial Planning Act and intentionally leave the zoning out of whack with the Official Plan, forcing developers to file requests to spot rezone specific lots, Hume said. “We said, ‘We’ll make that the responsibility of the developer and communities will have a say (in individual development applications),” Hume said. “We thought that was the better way to go. The way we did it caused more angst.” Now, the city will take a different tact.

The zoning for a number of specific areas – namely areas designated as town centres, mixed-use centres, arterial main streets and traditional main streets – will be updated to match the development goals and building height limits outlined in the city’s updated Official Plan, which council adopted last fall. Most other areas are covered by community design plans or transitoriented development plans with accompanying secondary plans, which enshrines them in the Official Plan, Hume said. The Official Plan update, billed as Building a Liveable Ottawa, was the big chance for residents to have their say about the future of development in their communities, Hume said. “We were told that once that debate is done – implement it and stick

“There will be less community conflict,” Hume predicted. The only people who might be unpleasantly surprised are landowners who won’t have as much negotiating power with developers who might look to purchase their land at a higher value, knowing that a rezoning could have boosted the site’s development potential. Now, it will be more of a “what you see (in the zoning) is what you get” approach, Hume said.

The city is looking at 30 rezoning projects to achieve consistency with the Official Plan, including: CENTRAL

• Billings Bridge • Bronson Avenue • Somerset Street • Preston Street • Gladstone Avenue • Dalhousie Street • Main Street/Hawthorne Avenue EAST

• McArthur Avenue • Innes Road • Montreal Road • Ogilvie Road • St. Jospeph Boulevard • St. Laurent Boulevard • Walkley Road • Orléans Town Centre SOUTH AND WEST

to the zoning you put in place,” Hume said. And that’s what the city is doing, he said. While there are a couple information sessions about the zoning review coming up, Hume said there won’t be a lot of opportunity for residents’ feedback to shape the outcomes at this stage. “They should have gotten involved in Building a Liveable Ottawa,” Hume said. “It all starts with the Official Plan. By the time it gets down to the implementation, it’s almost too late.” But people are interested in the details of that implementation, Hume said, and city staff will share that information at three upcoming meetings: • June 17, 4 to 8 p.m. at Jean Pigott Hall in City Hall, 110 Laurier Ave. W. • June 18, 4 to 8 p.m. at the Atrium of Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Dr., Nepean • June 19, 4 to 8 p.m. at Peter D. Clark Place, 255 Centrum Blvd., Orleans Feedback can be sent to zoningreview@ottawa.ca. Hume said the new approach of consistency between the Official Plan and zoning will be “almost impossible to back away from” once the city starts to implement it, because any deviations from that consistency will be used as justification for Ontario Municipal Board appeals. “As a result, you’d continue to erode the principles behind the plan,” he said. Pursuing development opportunities in Ottawa should become more streamlined as a result, Hume said. “Developers are going out to look for sites that just need a site plan,” he said, rather than the lengthy, costly and often antagonistic approach of seeking a rezoning.

Bringing all ages together grandparents, and it’s a lot of fun. You get to meet a new person every day.” Resident JP Brindamour, in a large hat and brightly-coloured feather boa, broke into a big smile and laughter when asked how he feels about the students. Another resident, named Gerry – who Joseph said is the king when it comes to their balloon volleyball games – smiled wide and nodded as well, his own quiet approval for the day’s sunny patio party. Marianne said it’s okay that the residents don’t always remember her, because she can get to meet everyone without anyone feeling left out because she previously spent time with them. Her friend Dominique Mesina, also a Grade 12 student, agreed that the volunteering sessions were enjoyable. “It’s always really fun,” she said. “You always meet a new personality.”

Memories captured in Queenswood Heights book Continued from page 1

Tweddle and her daughter, Sue Guarda, decided to finish the project as it had envisioned it, as a memory book with photos that people could flip through, not a novel-style history book. They spent 10 to 12 hours a day some days through the winter to finish it, with Guarda even moving in with her mom for two weeks to get work done. Most of the information comes from interviews, personal documents, and information from the former area newsletter, the Newsliner, which Tweddle used to edit.

Canadian Tradition becomes an Ottawa Institution

The School Dance presents an eclectic performance at the National Arts Centre Saturday June 7 showcasing the students with special guest composer James Wright and Ottawa’s Cantiamo Girls Choir. For tickets or more information, call The School of Dance at 613-238-7838 or email to admin@ theschoolofdance.ca. Photo by D. Brian Campbell.

It’s been a lifetime of love and devotion for Merrilee Hodgins and her colleagues at The School of Dance in downtown Ottawa. “We started with three people and 75 students,” recalls Artistic Director Hodgins from her behind her cluttered but organized desk at the helm of the centre. “Today we’re a hub for creative expression, from dance to music and visual arts.” Founded in 1978 by Merrilee and Joyce Shietze, Celia Franca, a long-time friend and artistic colleague, joined in 1979 as Co-Artistic Director. Founder of the National Ballet of Canada and co-founder of the National Ballet School, Franca helped to establish The School’s unwavering standards of excellence and the stage was set for The School of Dance to grow into the world class arts education institution it is today.

Ballet Programme Director Mary Ross helps her students master their art.

It was Merrilee’s love for ballet that led her from childhood dance recitals to managing one of the most thriving and productive dance schools in the country. “I saw my first ballet when I was four and I was immediately hooked. I knew that would be my world.” With the support of her family, Merrilee moved from her Alberta home to follow her dream. She trained and performed in England, Denmark and Germany as well as United States and Canada. By 23, she was ready to stop living her life from a suitcase. When she discovered Ottawa in the early 1970s, she knew she was home. Settling in the nation’s capital led to the opportunity to open a school of dance with the support of some of her professional mentors. “I always loved to teach but I never liked math,” she said. “My father always told me that you can’t be a dumb dancer, you have to be skilled in communications at all levels. So with

perseverance and tremendous support I have learned how to run a successful school through experience.” With more than 35 years of success to help choreograph its future, The School of Dance is a vibrant testimony to the commitment and dedication of Merrilee as well as the three full time and 53 contract teachers, musicians, choreographers, artists and volunteers who keep the place on its toes seven days a week. Now housed in a classic former school at 200 Crichton Street in old Ottawa east, The School of Dance has more than 1,000 active members studying dance and physical expression at all levels from novice to advanced. The student population covers every ward in the City of Ottawa, plus 67 Ontario communities, as well as all other provinces and 14 countries. The audition-based, professional dance training programs in ballet and contemporary dance produce graduates who are working as teachers,

On International Day of the Dance, April 29, The School of Dance welcomed families to take part in open dance classes. The emphasis was on having fun and the building echoed with laughter.

independent dancers and choreographers and/ or dancing with companies around the world, including Toronto, Montréal, Vancouver, Calgary, England, Holland, Sweden, Germany, and the United States. “We are truly a training institution,” points out Merrilee. “Our professional classes teach the language of dance. Students want knowledge and want to be able to do something with what they learn. You can’t duplicate the benefits of working with a master to help you release the artist within.”

Contemporary dance classes move through their motions under the supportive and watchful eye of guest choreographer Melanie Demers.

Young adults attend the school at the postsecondary level to pick up certified collegelevel accreditation in contemporary dance. Recognized in Ontario as a Private Career

College and Seminary of Learning, The School has 20 full-time students in contemporary dance and another 110 in ballet. “An important sub-unit of our arts education work is DanceONTour, a program which represents The School’s commitment to quality arts education for school children in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. “Another important component of our physical culture is our Artists in Residence Program. The School currently has three choreographers and four visual artists in residence; their interaction with the students creates a stimulating and exciting atmosphere.” She readily admits that her passion, and that of more of it.” her colleagues, is infectious.

Learning to be great again

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time Ontarians got the plan for the future they deserve, and one they can be proud of. A large number of democratic election campaigns focus on the challenges facing the populace that happens to be voting at the time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only a handful have the luxury of deciding what to do with good fortune. Politicians direct their energy towards any number of issues: health care, education, energy, crime, immigration, the economy. The priority depends on the point of view. Incumbents tend to take a longer view, as think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a good job up until now and want to look to the horizon to see what other great things can be accomplished. Those who sit in opposition or are seeking office look for things gone wrong or what they feel the public is clamouring for. In Ontario, much of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign has been focusing on the economy and how it can be put back on the path to prosperity. Some want to spend their way to success, others want to cut spending to bring back the good times. The deficit and debt play a significant role in the conversation, with each party pledging to put Ontario back in the black sometime in the near future. What most of these schemes lack is a focal point, something basic within the mandate of a provincial

government on which to rebuild our society from the smoking crater it now finds itself in. What should Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next government focus on to make this a good place to live? The answer should be academic: education. The benefits of a sound education system are numerous, but there are several reasons why it should be a priority for the province. First, in order to continue the transition away from a manufacturing-based economy, education becomes much more vital for the residents of Ontario. Arresting the decline in Education Quality and Accountability Office standardized mathematics scores in particular, representing skills important in fields such as engineering, medicine, information technology and financial services, should be among the priorities. Second, a more educated population not only earns more and therefore pays more taxes (helping reduce the deficit), but is attractive to investors looking to start up a business or international firms looking to set up shop. Third, a focus on education can only help encourage those who may lack the skills or training to find a job get back in the learning habit. A culture of education can beget more education. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing you should be asking candidates who come to your door, it should be: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your plan for education?â&#x20AC;?

Apathy? Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a sign of contentment

t will be interesting to see what turnout is like in the June 12 provincial election. To no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprise, the party leaders are treating the election as if it were a matter of life or death for the province. But few Ontarians see it that way. You want life and death? Take a look at the elections in Ukraine, or India, or South Africa. In those places, democracy is in a more brittle state than it is here. Different parties will take their country in wildly different directions. Losers take it less well than they do here. The possibility of violence is never far away. The survival of democracy is less certain. Whereas here? Your party, whichever it is, could lose, could be wiped out and yet your day-to-day life would not be affected much. Ask a federal Liberal. Ask a federal Conservative after 1993. There is a broad consensus on how far government can go and no one deviates from it. The result is that changes of government, while they make some people quite unhappy, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a fundamental difference. The schools and hospitals and the police continue to function. Those who disagree are not thrown in jail. The sun rises and sets over a peaceful province.

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town Many people hated the Progressive Conservative government led by Mike Harris, but the province survived, just as it survived Bob Rae and Dalton McGuinty. Those were three men with quite different visions, yet the province could accommodate all of them without breaking apart. Federally it is the same. Even for all the Harper haters out there, life hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed appreciably. When the federal Conservatives run for re-election next year, they may win, they may lose. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. But you can bank on the fact that voter turnout will be about the same. In other words, not high. Those who are struggling for higher voter turnout are doing noble work and more power to them. But much of the apathy they face is born out of contentment.

People like their lives and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they are threatened, even if the bad guys win. So, in a peculiar kind of way, low turnout shows that the system is working, that we have social peace. If things were really horrible, more people would be turning out to vote for change. If we did not have social peace, there would be fighting in the streets. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that. We have people staying at home watching TV instead of going to the polls. While thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than fighting in the streets, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clearly not good. Some experts blame low turnout on political parties failing to be relevant to voters, especially young voters (or non-voters). Maybe. Or maybe potential voters are bored with the same names showing on the ballot year after year. That might apply around here. Or maybe potential young voters would be more inclined to get involved if the schools did a better job of teaching how our democracy works and what elections and political parties are all about. The fact that the sun will still rise on the morning after the election does not mean there will not be change. The lack of blood in the streets does not mean nothing is at stake.

Decisions made by the provincial government have quite an impact on the city. Ask the parents whose kids are enrolled in fullday kindergarten. Ask the low-income people who are waiting for housing. Ask all of us who have been waiting and waiting and waiting for those LRT trains to start running. We have the luxury of being apathetic. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice for us in a way, given some of the alternatives. But apathy also opens the way for politics to become the preserve of fanatical few. Then when things go bad we will wonder why nobody did anything to stop it.

Is big spending on kids’ sports making them less active? BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse The only country that received a lower score than Canada was Scotland, where deep-fried Mars bars in front of the television is considered normal after school activity. Mozambique and New Zealand came out on top, with B grades for both. While it may seem counterintuitive at first glance, Active Healthy Kids Canada found that despite Canadians being big spenders on organized sports, and maybe even because of it, Canadian kids are lagging behind when it comes to physical fitness. Because of our reliance on organized activities to keep our kids fit, Canadian children are not engaging in spontaneous active play, suggests the report. Overscheduled lives and helicopter parenting has increasingly meant that kids aren’t spending their free time running around the backyard, but more likely on the couch with a screen in hand.

O

ver the winter, I signed my boys up for an indoor sport at a gym. Although they played outside in the snow, skated and did other winter sports, they were really excited to have the opportunity to have a space to run. They were due to be disappointed. They tore across the gym that first day, only to hear the coach say, “No running, please.” They weren’t allowed to run in the gym, not that day, nor the weeks following. In fact, many of the hours of “fitness” I paid for were spent standing on the sidelines and waiting their turns. So I wasn’t surprised at the latest findings from Active Healthy Kids Canada. The organization released its annual assessment of children’s physical activity levels just after the May long weekend, for the first time also comparing Canadian children to those in 14 peer countries. Appallingly, when it comes to physical fitness in children, Canada is almost at the bottom of the pack. In a grade-level scoring, Canada received a D-, lower than England, South Africa, Nigeria and Mexico.

Pipelines best way to transport oil To the editor, Just a thank you to Brynna Leslie for writing her opinion on pipelines. I fully agree that pipelines are the safest way to transport oil and gas. I did attend the open houses that Energy East held recently in Pembroke, North Gower and Cornwall. They were very informative as to how they build the pipelines, and how they

leave the land after they bury them. I even heard one farmer wishing they would cross his land as his neighbour is fortunate to be getting a nice cheque from TransCanada and he can still farm the land with no problems. The company certainly has me believing that they do everything possible to make sure that pipelines are built with a safety-first attitude. They do want to see the

land returned to its original or possibly a little better condition. Their employees will be our neighbours -they want a nice neighbourhood. It is nice that she took the time to research this and then come up with a knowledgable conclusion. Thank you, Brynna Leslie. Bruce Knox Nepean

Want to help the environment? Start protesting pipelines To the editor, Brynna Leslie is correct that it’s going to take a paradigm shift in our consumer culture if we’d like to see the end of pipelines, but her propipelines conclusion is questionable. How will the paradigm shift come about if we continue to subsidize the oil industry and expand tar sands oil production? The oil and gas companies certainly won’t rush to develop alternative energy sources as long as they’re making record profits within the existing framework. Shall we wait until we are

and gas companies will use rail infrastructure and marine transport if pipelines aren’t available is disingenuous. With the expected expansion of the tar sands, even if all the pipeline projects are approved, transportation by rail will still occur, and oil exports will continue to require marine transport. As for the safety of pipelines, today’s news headline reads “Pipeline breaks, spills crude oil into Los Angeles neighbourhood”. Do we want to see the same headline for Ottawa anytime soon?

all forced to “live in mud huts as subsistence farmers” before starting to shift to renewable energy? And shouldn’t Ms. Leslie be encouraging the protests if she really thinks that “Canadians should have a say about where the pipelines are going and whether the environment is a topmost concern”? Ms. Leslie also admits that Canada’s pipeline infrastructure is ageing. All the more reason to be concerned about a project like Energy East, which consists mainly of converting an existing, decades old natural gas pipeline. And her suggestion that oil

Hacking into Ottawa’s engineering community Katrice Sutherland

katrice.sutherland@metroland.com

Arts − Full-time artist, Darcy Whyte watches a trail of fire stemming from the tip of a laser slicing into a sheet of rubber he is using to make personalized stamps. Whyte is at the front of a line waiting to use the Epilog Zing 30 Watt Laser Cutter. This is the most recent addition of equipment to ModLab, one of Ottawa’s hacker spaces hosted at the Arts Court on Dalhousie, since 2012. ModLab is a regular gathering spot for artists, technicians, engineers, coders and curious members of the public. It is hosted by Artengine, a company advocating the success of local technicians, every Wednesday evening from 7 to 10 p.m. The evenings offer a chance for people to use expensive equipment like the Zing30 Laser, 3D printers, soldering irons, projectors and wiring connectors that most may not otherwise have access to. Britta Evans-Fenton, 24, the technical co-ordinator of Artengine says hacker spaces are a place to share and take in ideas. Ottawa now offers several of these makerspaces, each of them appealing to a different demographic with its region. The downtown atmosphere welcomes an older crowd of tech-savvy artists as where the Centrepoint branch of the Ottawa Public Library seeks to inspire more family-friendly projects. “It’s kind of nerdy from the general public point of view,” said Doug, an engineer and avid user of the space. “But it’s a great opportunity to get your geek on.” ModLab is like an open house. It’s free to the public of all ages in a space where people can seek or offer help with projects, share materials, and show-and-tell their venture developments. Richard Sloan, an electrical engineer, brought in a working prototype application for mobile devices. He is developing a coding program specific to Android products for a lighting system. Sloan says the user-friendly product, once finished, will be a home lighting system able to control light colour, shade and sensitivity

from the user’s phone with a simple swipe. What sets it apart from other companies developing similar products will be the input of a motion sensor and personalized timers, he said. As conversations spark about mechanical problems and specialized features, regular members made sure to translate their technical discussions for those who were new to the concepts. Elgin (Skye) MacLaren is a first time attendee looking to learn how to use Arduino, a small open-faced circuit board used to program robotic devices. “I’ve got some really good leads on information,” she said. “I’m going to come back once I have some of the toys to play with and have (other members) help me try to figure out how to put things together.” MacLaren went home holding a tiny plastic tiger, a sample from the 3D printer demonstration she observed. Many of the people attending are interested in expanding their businesses. Whyte is designing multiple stamps that will eventually layer and act as a portable printing press, which he hopes will save the environment from wasteful business cards. In the meantime, Whyte makes his business cards for the paper airplane company he runs from scraps of old projects Thomas Allanson, a 3D designer put his skills to use for his wife’s jewellery design business, making online models for potential patrons to browse through. “This is the one place where your brain can run free,” said Allanson. Artengine is a company comprised of a collection of artists whom organize various events in the Ottawa community, like MiniMaker Faires and workshop nights, and manage grant funding. Artengine is located in the Arts Court on 2 Daly Ave., a space that is home to 27 art organizations. Ottawa Art Gallery in the Arts Court is expected to have a team together to begin planning for its $34million transformation, expansion and re-development, in June 2014. The anticipated new space will not have an effect on any of the program arrangements until the con-

struction is scheduled to commence, two years from now, during which time ModLab will temporarily relocate. “The impact, as we foresee it, will be minimal,” said Remco Volmer, Artengine program manager.

Mary has desperate wish to wear a slip

M

y sister Audrey said you had to be a certain age before you were old enough to wear a slip. I could never understand the reasoning behind that rule. Surely, if you could see your underpinnings through your dress, you needed a slip! And I told her so too. The winter clothes had been packed away, and the summer wear was out. “Well,” Audrey explained, “children your age don’t wear sheer dresses, and so you don’t need a slip.” I mentally pictured my scant summer wardrobe. The only dresses I owned were two Dan River Cottons I wore to church or for very special occasions. Whereas Audrey, had at least three dresses, one of a lacy fabric that had come in the hand-me-down box from Aunt Lizzie, and one Mother had made from an organza piece of material that was on sale at Walker’s Store in Renfrew. Another dress, which she often wore to the Northcote School was a light material, and if she stood in a doorway, or the

MARY COOK Memories

sun caught it just the right way, without a slip you would certainly see her underpinnings. She definitely needed a slip for all three of them! But how I longed for a slip! Now, part of it, I knew, was because there was a saying back in those days, that if a girl’s slip was showing, you quietly went up to her and said, “It’s snowing down south,” and she immediately went and did something about her slip peeking beneath her hemline. I was very impressed when I heard someone say that to another girl in the schoolyard. That, to me was a sure sign of growing up. How I longed for a slip. The best thing to do was to talk it over with Mother. She said Audrey was right, that you needed a slip if you were wearing something that could show your under-

pinnings...but she also said it had nothing to do with how old you were. That was wonderful news to me. And I set out trying to make a bargain with Mother. If I did extra chores on Saturday, washed my underwear out every night without being asked, and promised to try to have only pleasant thoughts when it came to bad Marguirite, would Mother consider letting me have a slip? The last promise I knew, would be the hardest to keep! Mother said to let her think about it. That meant no more discussion on the subject until she brought it up. Like so many times when I longed for something that was out of my reach, I couldn’t get owning a slip out of my mind. Like the little wood pencil box my friend Joyce had...with a green palm tree painted on the outside, and a lid that slid open by using your thumb nail, and it swivelled to show a place for pencils, and even a little dent for your art gum. Or the short white stockings bad Mar-

guirite wore to school with a tiny row of lace around the cuffs. Wanting the pencil box or the white stockings would forever remain a dream. But owning my first slip, I thought, wasn’t being that unreasonable. And then one morning I came down from our bedroom and Mother was, as usual, standing at the Findlay Oval stirring the porridge in the big white pot. She snapped the ladle against the side of the pot and put it on a saucer on the reservoir, and told me to go to her bedroom and bring out what was there. The bed was neatly made with the Log Cabin quilt pulled up over the pillows (bedspreads were unheard of in our house), and there was something folded in the centre of the bed. I picked it up, and it was a slip! A real slip! I tore to the kitchen like someone possessed and asked Mother if it was for me. “Well, it’s too short for Audrey, and I doubt your brothers would be wanting to wear it,” Mother said. I was already dressed for school, but there was no way another day was going to pass without my wearing

a slip. I wasn’t in a dress, but had on a cotton skirt made out of one of Uncle Jack’s dress shirts, and a blouse that once belonged to Audrey. I tore upstairs and in jig time came down with the slip on next to my bare skin and underpants, and with the blouse and skirt back on. Mother had made it at night, when we children were in bed, and the steady clack-clack of the old Singer sewing machine could be heard downstairs almost every night, but I never knew what creation Mother was working on. And here, last night, she had sewn me my first slip. It was made of white broadcloth, a luxury to be sure. It was a few inches shorter than my skirt, and had wide straps, not like Audrey’s slip which had little slides you could move up and down to shorten or length it. But I was so thrilled, I could hardly wait to get to the Northcote Side Road where my friend Velma would be waiting for me to walk to school, and tell her what I had on under my skirt. I also told Joyce, and we went behind the outhouse

at recess so that I could lift my skirt and show them my new slip. I would love to have let the whole school know...the girls at least, but of course I wouldn’t dare be that forward. No, I just had to live with keeping it to myself and my two best friends. Of course, I couldn’t wear it under my slacks, or shorts, and as it got warmer, it stuck to my skin, so I started only wearing it to church. It didn’t take long for the novelty of owning a slip to wear off. And it stuck to my dress or my skirt. To be honest it became quite a nuisance. And besides, since Mother had made it so much shorter than my skirts or dresses, not one soul sidled up to me and said “Mary, it’s snowing down south.” So, if no one knew I was even wearing as slip, what was the point of having one on?

Grilled prosciutto strawberry bundles a sweet and salty appetizer Lifestyle - Sweet, savoury, tangy and salty, these delicious bundles are grilled to perfection. This simple yet sophisticated seasonal appetizer will surprise and delight your guests. Preparation time: 15 minutes. Grilling time: six to eight minutes. Makes 16 pieces. Ingredients

• 8 slices prosciutto • 80 g goat cheese or cream cheese •16 small strawberries, hulled or eight large strawberries, hulled and halved • Freshly ground black pepper Preparation

Slice each strip of prosciutto in half lengthwise and separate. Place 2 ml (1/2 tsp) of goat cheese about 2.5 cm (1 inch) from end of the strip, place a strawberry on top, then 2 ml (1/2 tsp) of goat cheese beside the strawberry. Firmly roll the prosciutto around the cheese and strawberry until it’s securely enclosed. Repeat this with the remaining ingredients. Top with pepper to taste, cover and refrigerate for up to eight hours. Place the bundles on a greased grill over medium-high heat (200 C/400 F) and cook until slightly grilled -- about six to eight minutes, turning frequently to avoid burning. Arrange on a platter and serve immediately. Tip: These bundles are delicious as a salad topper. Serve on a bed of fresh arugula with a drizzle of balsamic dressing. Foodland Ontario

Province introducing legislation to regulate the towing, vehicle storage News - The province intends to introduce legislation to help Ontario drivers make informed decisions and protect their money when getting their vehicle towed or having it held in a storage facility. There are about 1,200 tow truck operators and 3,000 tow

truck drivers in the pronvince of Ontario. The proposed legislation and supporting regulations would require tow truck operators and storage providers to: • Have permission from a consumer or someone acting

on behalf of the consumer before charging for towing and storage services. • Publicly post prices and other information, like the operator’s name and contact information. • Accept credit card payments from consumers.

• Provide an itemized invoice listing the services provided and the total cost. Ontario is also proposing to include tow trucks in the province’s existing commercial vehicle operator’s registration system to improve road safety through

government monitoring and enforcement measures. COLLisions

In 2010, tow truck operators in Ontario had a 19.7 per cent collision rate, compared to only 1.1 per cent for driv-

ers of other commercial vehicles. Provincial oversight of the towing industry was a key recommendation of the Auto Insurance Anti-Fraud Task Force and is part of Ontario’s auto insurance cost and rate reduction strategy.

Teach kids the love of books early in life

Brier Dodge/Metroland

Future soccer stars Old Ottawa South resident Devon Axam, 11, participates in a special soccer camp held at the Louis Riel Dome in Blackburn Hamlet on May 22. The weeklong after school camp was run by the Academy of FC Barcelona Escola. Louis Riel sports director Joé Fournier said the academy is “really the crème de la crème” and was proud the school was able to attract the European club’s top academy to Ottawa. More than 150 players took part in the special sessions.

News - Reading is an important life-long skill—and developing strong reading habits from an early age sets the stage for life. “While we know that it’s important for young children have strong reading skills, getting kids to embrace reading is not always as simple,” says Nick Whitehead, the founder and CEO of Oxford Learning. Fortunately there are several strategies that parents can take to help their kids improve both their love of reading and their reading skills. According to Dr. Whitehead, the number one thing that parents can do to improve their child’s reading ability is to simply make books available in the home and to have a regular reading time. He also suggests some other simple ideas to encourage reading such as going to the library together, reading books together as a family, reading a book series, or listening to audio books in the car. For parents who have tried all the basic tips and still have difficulty getting their children to embrace reading, Dr. Whitehead suggests that parents of older children give their kids banned books or let them read above their skill level. Studies have shown that telling a child a book is banned sparks their interest to read it more. For younger children, parents can stop reading right at a pivotal point to guarantee that children become interested enough to read on by themselves to find out what happens next. News Canada

Your gift keeps on giving. Forever.

MINIMIZE THE FINAL INCOME TAX LIABILITY OF YOUR ESTATE proper planning, a deceased’s “ Without income tax liability could be significant Did you know that approximately 80% of Canadians will donate to a charity during their lifetime? However, it is estimated that less than 10% will include a gift to a registered charity in their Will.

This is one of a series of several articles intended to build awareness about the impact of legacy giving to Forever CHEO. In addition to the spiritual and community benefits of gifting to a registered charity, naming a registered charity as a beneficiary in your Will can also be an effective way to minimize the final income tax liability

of an estate. Without proper planning, a deceased’s income tax liability could be significant. Various income inclusions at the time of death, such as deemed capital gains and the fair market value of an RRSP can result in a higher than expected estate income tax liability given Canada’s graduated income tax rates.

Gifts to Forever CHEO can include cash legacies, bequests of real or personal property, securities, life insurance proceeds and all or part of the residue of the estate. All of these gifts can potentially generate tax credits available to reduce an estate’s income tax liability. Additionally, the gifting of certain types of capital property to Forever CHEO under the terms of a Will may avoid capital gains but still maximize the tax credits available from such a gift.

Running can help prevent or manage arthritis For many committed runners, a diagnosis of arthritis can sound like a death sentence. It’s natural to assume that you have to give up the activity you love in order to protect your joints from further damage. Not so fast: there is growing evidence that running does not contribute to arthritis, and may actually help people delay the onset of arthritis

.While there are many different kinds of arthritis, the form that most runners need to concern themselves with is osteoarthritis, where degeneration of the cartilage caused by twisting or tearing injuries leads to bone-on-bone contact and joint inflammation. Severe cases can require heavy medication or even joint replacement surgery. “The motion of running does not

lead to arthritis”, explains The Arthritis Society’s Karen Gordon, a Registered Physiotherapist and herself an avid runner. With the proper technique, most runners don’t experience the kinds of injuries that can lead to arthritis. If you already have arthritis in your hips, knees or feet, there may be hope for you too.

“Exercise is an important part of both prevention and management of arthritis” says Gordon. “Physical activity increases blood flow to the joints, which promotes healing. A little stiffness and soreness after a period of inactivity is normal and should go away as you gradually become more active. Gordon suggests keeping your runs to moderate distance and pace – pushing yourself opens the door to greater risk of injury. If pain, heat or swelling in your joints persists

or intensifies, talk with your healthcare provider as you may need to scale back your program. And if running seems a bit ambitious at first, start off by walking. Taking part in an event like the Walk to Fight Arthritis on June 9th (www. walktofightarthritis.ca) will let you get some exercise while helping raise awareness and funds to combat arthritis in Canada.

Sports - Six gymnasts from Tumblers Gymnastics Centre in Orléans became Eastern Canadian champions in women’s and men’s artistic gymnastics at a competition May 11 and 12 in Oshawa. All six qualified to be members of Team Ontario for the Eastern Canadian Championships by finishing fourth or better in their respective divisions at the Ontario Championships in early April. Juliette Chapman and Avery Rosales finished first and second respectively leading the four members of Team Ontario’s Canadian Pre-Novice (CPN) Elite team to gold and earning the title of Eastern Canadian Champions. Rosales placed first on balance beam,

second on floor exercise, third on vault, and Chapman placed first on floor exercise and third on balance beam. Beth Webster and Caroline Poirier who competed at the championships as members of Team Ontario in the Canadian Provincial Program (CPP) Level 5 category also had a strong showing placing second and fifth respectively and playing their part in another gold for Team Ontario. Webster had two second place finishes on balance beam and uneven bars, while Poirier took second place on floor exercise.

overall finish as a member of Team Ontario’s CPP Level 4 team paving the way to yet another gold for Team Ontario at the championships. Cameron had an impressive three podium event finishes placing first on both balance beam and vault, and second on floor exercise. As the sole Tumblers gymnast to represent Team Ontario in the men’s competition, Nicholas Dugan (Level 4) scored third overall with two bronze medals earned on pommel horse and high bar. Coaches for the six Tumblers gymnasts are Alina Florea, Lynne Ethier and Nicholas Grimard. Florea, who is also the women’s program manager at Tumblers, was thrilled with

the success of her athletes at this premier event for the eastern provinces. “Competition is all about the ability to handle the nerves and perform your best at the right time,” said Florea. “The main goal for each athlete at competition is to do what they’re doing in practice. They did that this weekend.” The Eastern Canadian Championships are held annually with teams of gymnasts representing Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland competing for the Eastern title. Ontario teams have typically had a strong showing at Eastern Canadian Championships.

Fools offer starving artists lunch New way for sponsors to meet theatre company

“An organization of our size it requires money to keep it going,” Florence said. “Funding from all levels of government is really not going to increase, especially with the demand of many small organizations seeking funding. We are going to need additional private funding and that comes from relationships and so, rather than start off that we want money, we thought lets invite people to lunch and tell them what we do, and in time, hopefully that will get us more funding and donations.“ The lunch time feast is a new way the theatre group is attempting to raise money. “I don’t wear suits, I dress like an old hippie, meeting with corporate suits is not something I can do,” Florence said. “We are called a Company of Fools -- we can’t impress

Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

Community - Hungry? Dying to know what a fool eats for lunch? Well now is your chance to swing by the Company of Fools rehearsal hall for a starving artist’s feast. The Company of Fools launched a new lunchtime special -- cheese and crackers with the biggest fool in the group, artistic director and actor Scott Florence.

people with fancy business speak and we want to find a way to meet fun people, have lunch and let them learn more about what we do.” Florence said the company is looking to build stronger relationships with its patrons. The plan is to host these lunches throughout the month of June, as the company gets ready for its summer production of As You Like It, starting July 3 and running to Aug. 16 in various parks across the area. Performances take place evenings at 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Pass-the-hat donations remain one of the main ways the company raises money. Florence said he hopes this new lunch time opportunity will offer people a chance to learn more about the show as well as create opportunities to discuss new ideas of

how the company can expand. “There could be ways and means for us to do more shows,” he said. “Who knows, maybe we will meet some people who like what we do and want us to perform in a bar as something different. “We are open to collaboration. We are a Company of Fools and we collaborate all the time as artists. Ideas change and morph all the time as we work and I want to bring that relationship with potential donors.” So far, the director said two individuals have already called up interested in the idea and although the lunches are mainly scheduled to take place this month, Florence said if people are interested, he will make himself available throughout the summer. “I have to eat lunch every day, I

will happily do it with people,” he said. “We want people to learn what it takes to put on theatrical production and I will keep doing it if there is a demand.” Aside from eating lunch, fans are invited to a sneak peek party on June 13 to watch a rehearsal of this year’s production as well as meet and mingle with the cast and crew. “We are really excited about the show this summer, and we are so blessed with the support that we have received from Ottawa throughout the years,” Florence said. “I am excited that this year we have the chance to also meet some of our audience members.” For more information about the theatre company, book a lunch or to donate to the organization visit fools. ca.

Bike and Ride pilot to launch in OrlĂŠans

Forest Valley open house on June 10 Staff

News - There will be an open house on June 10 to discuss the Forest Valley Drive area trafďŹ c management study. The open house will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the OrlĂŠans branch of the Ot-

tawa Public Library in the BĂŠriault Meeting Room. The study will look at trafďŹ c between OrlĂŠans and St. Joseph Boulevards. It is set to study trafďŹ c and driver behaviours along the corridor. The open house will gather input from the neighbour-

hood residents to develop a plan to deal with trafďŹ c. It is not directly related to the ďŹ&#x201A;ex-stake trafďŹ c signs that are already on a portion of Forest Valley Drive, but the section they are on between Willowbark and Medowglen Drives is part of the study.

‘All-inclusive’ lineup planned Ottawa Folk Festival’s 20th year Erin McCracken

erin.mccracken@metroland.com

Arts - After securing musical acts ranging from Lorde and Blue Rodeo to The Wiggles and Fred Penner, organizers of the Ottawa Folk Festival say the five-day event will feature something for multiple generations of people. “We have made it a lot more inclusive,” said A.J. Sauve, Ottawa Folk Festival spokesman. “(Folk Fest is) not a narrower demographic because it appeals to young people, especially with The Wiggles (drawing in) people from four and six years old all the way up to 50-plus years old.” Festival-goers who follow the folk scene and its storytelling singers and songwriters will also be satisfied throughout the festival, which happens Sept. 10 to 14 at Hog’s Back Park. The event turns 20 this year. “More discerning fans will be familiar with the music of The Milk Carton Kids or Foster the People,”

Submitted

A.J. Sauve, spokesman for the Ottawa Folk Festival, hopes to see 50,000 people attend the event in September at Hog’s Back Park, up 10,000 over last year’s festival. Sauve said. “It’s not names that jump right off the map as household names.”

A dozen local acts, including Craig Cardiff, High Waters and Lora Bidner, have already signed on.

“There’s at least a fifth of the programming that is dedicated to local acts, since there’s about 50 or 60 acts coming in,” Sauve said, adding this signals Ottawa’s music scene is on the map. “I opened a bar called the Rainbow Bistro back in 1984 – it’s a live-music venue here in Ottawa – and I remember when people would call and say, ‘Where’s the band from?’ and if you said, ‘From Ottawa,’ it was like ‘Aww.’ Now if you say a band’s from Ottawa, there’s a really strong music scene in Ottawa.” Both free and paid festival programming will be available at the park, separated by a bicycle path that cuts through the green space. Two stages, as well as several food trucks and a large beer tent showcasing several craft beers, will be located on the free side, while three stages of musical talent will be available for paid pass holders elsewhere in the park. “Food trucks have really caught

on in Ottawa … so we’re having a food truck rally,” Sauve said, adding a variety of food will be available for purchase on Saturday and Sunday. The weekend lineup will also feature an interactive element with artist panels, tutorials, and a question-andanswer period. “We’re going for a more interactive approach which we think will be more compelling,” Sauve said, adding that people will likely enjoy hearing two artists talk to each other about touring, as well as singing and songwriting, among other topics. “This can be sort of a two-way engagement, so really cool,” the spokesman said. Organizers have also planned this year’s lineup with children and families in mind. In addition to children’s entertainers taking the stage, the event will feature a KidZone on the weekend, including more than 100 instruments at a touch-and-try musical petting zoo, a parade and dance tent activities. Given the diverse acts and activities planned, organizers are hoping to attract 50,000 people this year, about 10,000 more than last year’s festival. “Last year, we had 8,000 a day which was really a big leg up from what Folk Festival used to do,” said Sauve. “We did more in one day than they used to do in a whole festival.” After taking over the operation of the Ottawa Folk Festival from previous management and relocating the event from Britannia Park in 2011, organizers haven’t looked back since. “It really is iconic with the Hog’s Back Falls; and people involved in tourism … want that because finally we were highlighting and putting that park to good use and driving thousands of people in that direction, and sort of reinventing that site’s potential in staging concerts there,” Sauve said. Ottawa Folk Fest happens Wednesday, Sept. 10 to Sunday, Sept. 14 at Hog’s Back Park, located at the corner of Riverside Drive and Heron Road.

Presto now reloads in four hours OC Transpo smart card sync times down from 24-48 hours Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Presto has eased one of the top fare smartcard complaints: a delay in money loading onto cards. After upgrades earlier this spring, Presto cards will now recognize funds when they are tapped on an OC Transpo bus within four hours of

money being added to the card online. That’s a big improvement from the 24-to-48 hour window that it used to take, said transit commission chairwoman Coun. Diane Deans. The delay could even be as little as 10 minutes, Deans said. It could also take slightly longer than four hours. “It’s loaded a lot more

often, so it will be better,” Deans said. The improvement is possible because the Presto payment readers on OC Transpo buses have been outfitted with cellular devices to receive updates on account information on a more frequent basis. QUICK REFRESH

That information is now refreshed three to six times a day on every bus in the system, as opposed to once a

day in the past. Before, buses had to return to the garage to be hooked up to the network and sync the on-board system with Presto’s online system. Now, that can happen remotely. OC Transpo is the only Presto-enabled transit system to use cellular technology at this time, Deans said. The smart-card payment system, which is overseen by the provincial government’s Metrolinx agency, is also used in Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area.

The last time the transit commission received an update on the Presto system in February, there were more than 140,000 of the cards in use in Ottawa and the system had registered 27.5 million successful taps. PARA TRANSPO FARE KEPT EQUAL

An electronic fare payment option for the city’s Para Transpo fleet of accessible buses is still in the works, so the transit com-

mission agreed to extend a discount on the cash fares Para Transpo users pay. Since Presto cards can’t be tapped on Para Transpo vehicles, those passengers aren’t able to take advantage of the most discounted fares – “e-purse” cash value loaded onto a Presto card. Sticking with the Para discount until July 1 will ensure the fare is the same. The transit commission supported extending the fare reduction from $3.45 to $2.75 until that time.

Organization host city-wide food security challenge New funding initiative aims to improve access to affordable food michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Non-profit organizations across the city are being challenged to help stomp out hunger for good. The Community Foundation of Ottawa has launched the new initiative, dubbed the Leaf Community Challenge, to tackle a number of issues. First up is food security. “In our conversations and connections with the community, there were three overriding issues,” said Catherine Dubois, director of community engagement. “Those three were affordable housing, civic engagement and access to nutritious and affordable food.” The point of this new challenge, Dubois said, is to find a long-term solution. The challenge asks charitable organizations to submit food security proposals until Sept. 15. The foundation is offering funding to the winning proposal. Dubois said the funding amount will remain a secret until the official unveil on May 31 at the challenge launch, but it is substantial and could very well turn the issue around for good. “There has been excellent work being done when it comes to food security and one of those things are the good food markets,” Dubois said. “It was based on all the good work that is being done that we felt that if the community were provided additional funding it would really help bring

significant change.” Established in 1987, the foundation connects donors with causes. It has served as a resource for people who address issues and concerns and aims to make new opportunities available for communities in need. Currently managing assets in excess of $100million, it has provided more than $70-million in grants to the community since its inception. In the past the foundation has funded many small initiatives to help improve food security, engage citizens and work at making affordable housing a reality. Those amounts, said spokeswoman Iona Green, were small compared to the large funding announcement the foundation is set to make this weekend. That announcement will take place at one of the city’s Good Food Markets at the Nanny Goat Hill Community Garden, at the corner of Laurier Avenue West and Bronson Avenue at 11 a.m. According to the Community Foundation of Ottawa, currently more than 75,000 people in Ottawa worry they don’t have enough food to feed themselves or their families due to finances and living situations. Foundation president Marco Pagani said this challenge is all about creating access to food for everyone and the most important aspect of the foundation’s new proposal challenge.

foundation will not direct how any plan is implemented. “Certainly we have criteria, but we have confidence that our community knows what it will take to make a difference,” Dubois said. INVOLVEMENT

One of the conditions set out in the challenge is that the participating organizations work with communities and families

who use the food bank and who are suffering from the inability to eat healthy daily. “We want people who are directly affected to be involved. We want the voice of those affected to speak, residents in the neighbourhood. It is important to make it sustainable and we really believe that with a significant allocation of funds we can really make a difference for those communities.” The final selection

from the top three proposals will be announced at a live, juried event in early October. The jury, Green said, will be made up of community leaders and knowledge experts on the issue. Once funding has been allocated towards a food security plan, Green said the foundation will hold similar challenges for other critical issues neighbourhoods face in this city.

In the past three years, there has been a 12 per cent increase in food bank use in the city. The idea is for charitable organizations to propose a plan that could reduce this use, or eliminate it completely. Dubois said the foundation is looking forward to seeing what organizations propose. There will be a list of criteria organizations must meet to be considered, but Dubois said the

Spring is here – finally. It’s time for the exciting transition back to outdoor exercise after a winter of stuffy indoor workouts, or lack of exercise all together. Although many of you are eager to lace up your shoes and hit the pavement in the fresh outdoor air, you must first ensure you have the right equipment and that you are exercising in moderation. Overtraining can lead to repetitive strain injuries which occur when exercise intensity, frequency or duration is excessive, and the exerciser doesn’t allow sufficient recovery in between workouts. Chronic insufficient recovery can actually do the body harm and set back training goals. In other words, overtraining can be counterproductive. Overtraining can also quickly

Rideau High School students restore old streetcar Michelle Nash Michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - Students from Rideau High School are getting a rare opportunity to get a hands-on learning experience thanks to a piece of Ottawa’s past. Known as the 696 Streetcar Restoration Project, a group of students from Rideau’s woodworking and transportation classes are restoring and reconstructing a streetcar that was built in 1917. The school is working with the 696 Streetcar Restoration group at the OC Transpo maintenance facility in Nepean. The goal is to complete the project in the next three years, to have it ready and functional for Canada’s 150th birthday. Woodworking teacher Robert Aucoin said the students, who range from grades 9 to 12, are combining their knowledge from both woodworking

and automotive to get the job done. “This is a perfect fit to combine the two classes,” Aucoin said. “We were doing it before, in a smaller capacity, but not at this magnitude, with this opportunity to work on something that is 100 years old.” The students have little actual original streetcar pieces to work with and are recreating basically everything for the project from scratch. They are learning everything from workplace safety, teamwork and how turn imagination and creativity into something concrete. Aucoin said for the most part they build the streetcar pieces at the school, and on May 23 the students were attempting to fasten the doors to the frame of the car. As the job gets closer to completion, Aucoin expects the class to spend more time at the facility. The job is an expensive one. Aucoin

said by the time the project is complete, it will have cost somewhere between $300,000 and $500,000. He said this portion of the project was funding with an $8,000 donation from building supply store Lowe’s. The teacher said he plans on creating more partnerships with local businesses to see the project to completion. The restoration project has been ongoing for many years, said 696 Streetcar Restoration group member Rheaume Laplante. He said the restoration project has been incredibly difficult because in the 1920s the blueprints for the streetcars were burned during a labour dispute. Laplante said the group works with heritage streetcar museums, like the Halton County Radial Railway museum. “Everything we are doing is based on research of similar streetcars,” he

said. Because of this, automotive teacher Mark Backmann said his students have had to design everything from scratch and handmade, like they would have in 1917. “It’s been a really great experience,” said Kyara Stronach-O’Connor, a Grade 9 woodworking student. Stronach-O’Connor’s job for the day was to sand down the paint on the side of the streetcar, which she said was really hard and a lot of work, but still, said she loved having the chance to help fix up the car. Aucoin and Backmann said this rare opportunity is something both of them as just as excited to participate in as much as the kids. “It’s just amazing,” Backmann said. “I am in as much awe as the students. I have never been on a streetcar, and now I am helping restore an important piece of history.”

NOTICE OF PASSING OF A ZONING BY-LAW BY THE CITY OF OTTAWA

Many of the students might not see the project from start to finish, but Aucoin said he believes there are a few diehard woodworking and automotive students who have really embraced the project. In addition to the learning opportunities for the students, Aucoin said he would also like to honour former Rideau High School student and bus driver David Woodard, who died last year in the Barrhaven bus crash, in some way as well. “It’s an idea, I don’t know what we would do, but I thought it would be a nice way to honour him,” he said. Aucoin never knew Woodard, but did teach his brother and felt inclined to do something for the family. The project will take over three years to complete, just in time for the 2017 ceremonies Aucoin said. “That’s the goal. We will try to get it complete for Canada’s birthday,” he said.

The City of Ottawa has completed an Environmental Assessment of the Queen Street Renewal Project. The City has identified the need to renew Queen Street to upgrade the streetscape and pedestrian environment in anticipation of the commencement of the Confederation Line service. The streetscape/ surface renewal on Queen Street between Bronson Avenue and Elgin Street is being coordinated with the construction of the Confederation Line light rail transit (LRT) through the downtown area. The Recommended Plan will provide one shared-use travel lane in each direction with turning lanes where essential, while providing maximum space for wide sidewalks including opportunities for on-street parking, loading and/or taxi space. The City has planned this project under Schedule C of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment. The Environmental Study Report (ESR) has been completed and by this Notice is being placed in the public record for review. Subject to the comments received as a result of this Notice and receipt of necessary approvals, the City intends to proceed to detailed design. The implementation timing has not yet been confirmed however construction activities will be coordinated with the Confederation Line project.

annual Great Canadian Lemonade Standemonium presented by Palladium Insurance. Last year, more than 200 kids took part and helped to raise more than $53,000.

At the tender age of 13, Brielle knows all too well the realities of the disease. When she was just 10 years old, her mom was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.

This year, the Great Canadian Lemonade Standemonium will take place on Saturday, June 21st – and funds raised will support the new Cancer Coaching health service and cancer research.

“When my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer I didn’t really know what it was all about,” she explains. “She (my mom) is my best friend, and it was really hard for me because I had to be away from her – she was at the hospital a lot.”

Sylvie Forget-Swim and her entire family, and fellow colleagues at Palladium Insurance have adopted the Lemonade Stand campaign this year. They have been hard at work recruiting businesses, schools and neighbourhoods to get involved.

After being diagnosed, Brielle’s mom was referred to surgical oncologist Dr. Angel Arnaout – and within a month she began chemotherapy, underwent surgery to remove the lymph nodes and had follow-up radiation treatments.

“This is such an amazing way to get kids involved in giving back,” Sylvie explains. “We have had a number of family, friends and business associates who have been touched by cancer – this is our way to rally the community and help them during a difficult time.”

Brielle kept a positive outlook through the entire experience and wanted to support her mom. She believes that this journey has taught her to never give up. Brielle is determined to give back to the community that helped to save her mom – and she is volunteering to take part in the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation’s second

Brielle is also helping to recruit participants – encouraging all local kids to get involved and register their stands too. “You are never too young to volunteer and help – and hosting a lemonade stand is fun and something you can do with your friends!”

News - Cycling advocates and Coun. Mathieu Fleury are trying to ensure cyclists don’t get the squeeze in a short-term plan to fix St. Patrick Street. The street will be repaved between the Vanier Parkway and King Edward Avenue this summer, but there is not quite enough room for bicycle lanes in one section, between Cobourg Street and King Edward. City engineers say the solution is to make the outer lane wider and paint “sharrow” markings indicating that motorists and cyclists should share the lane, but Fleury said he wants a better solution for cyclists. That section of St. Patrick is important because it connects Vanier to Lowertown and parts of the city west of the Rideau River, said Sarah Partridge of the Vanier Community Association. “We’re bounded by water, so St. Patrick Street is the main link for anyone coming from the east,” she said. “People can otherwise feel like St. Patrick is a barrier.” The city is already spending money to segregate cyclists from vehicle traffic over the St. Patrick Bridge as part of the east-west bikeway, which heads south at Cobourg, Fleury said, so using that cycling route and making it safer for cyclists who choose to continue west on St. Patirck into the ByWard Market would make sense. “For us, it’s just important as we have these projects to leverage these opportunities,” he said. “This resurfacing obviously brings some attention to it. We want to make sure all options are considered.” Fleury said he and Mayor Jim Watson are searching for $1 million to expand a sidewalk in the section east of Cobourg into a multi-use pathway that cyclists could also use, which

would provide a grassy buffer between cyclists and vehicles. The path would be paired with sharrow markings. Partridge said that solution would be ideal, especially because it would provide more safety and separation from traffic for children who live in the area, but she was concerned the price tag was unrealistic. Alternately, Fleury is working with cycling advocates who want to convince city engineers to allow the vehicle lanes to be made narrower to make space for a bicycle lane – albeit one that’s a few centimetres shy of the 1.5 m provincial guideline. A solution will need to be found within the next couple of weeks, before the city issues a contract for the roadwork. Fleury expects to be able to tell residents about the cycling solution at a public meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 19 at 6 p.m. The meeting will take place at Patro d’Ottawa community centre at 40 Cobourg St. The city had hoped to get funding to completely rebuild the street this year, ahead of schedule, but a request for $2 million in funding was denied by the provincial government. The rebuild is still on the city’s radar to do in the next decade – including adding a cycling track (a bike lane raised from the road). Instead of a fully rebuilt road, the city will give the street a fresh coat of asphalt this summer as a band-aid solution for the bumpy, potholed surface, Fleury said. “It’s a nightmare,” he said. “It’s definitely the worst road in the city … We have crews out there patching it every day.” The repaving will keep the road in a better condition for five to 10 years, at which point the city hopes to have the money for the full rebuild, which would also include deck work on the St. Patrick Bridge. Cyclists shouldn’t have to wait until then for a safer solution, Partridge wrote.

Fire knocks out Gloucester auto body shop Erin McCracken

News - A south Gloucester auto body shop went up in flames in the early morning hours of May 20. Investigators from Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of the Fire Marshall have taken over the case, after it was determined the auto body shop, located at 4085 Ramsayville Rd., suffered more than $750,000 in damages. The provincial body leads fire investigations involving more than $500,000 in damage, or other criteria, such as a fatality, critical injury or suspected arson. The blaze that ultimately ravaged the shop is not considered suspicious, said Capt. Marc Messier, Ottawa fire services spokesman. While the cause of the fire has not yet been determined, investigators suspect the fire ignited in or near a car parked in one of the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work bays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This car was in the process of being painted, so whether something malfunctioned, caused a spark, caused the ignition of some fumes, (we)

Two staff members working the overnight shift at the shop managed to get two vehicles out of the garage before the flames spread. One worker suffered minor burns to one hand, and was treated at the scene but did not require a trip

to hospital, Messier said. Another four or five vehicles parked inside the premises were completely burnt, as well as the unhitched bed of a tractor trailer which contained tires that was parked nearby. Multiple 911 calls came in around 3:25 a.m., prompting almost 20 firefighters in eight trucks to respond to the

Discovering Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jewish community during Doors Open Ottawa By Jenna Guilbeault

The Ottawa Jewish Archives, nestled between Carlingwood and McKeller Heights, is an organization that is part of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa. It specializes in the collection and preservation of materials that document the history of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jewish community, and makes them available to the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a very interesting collection, and a lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know we exist,â&#x20AC;? said Emily Leonoff, archivist and conservator at the Jewish Archives. With assistance from the Ottawa Jewish Historical Society, founding archivist Shirley Berman ďŹ rst opened the archives in 1969. In 1984 the Jewish Community Centre on Chapel Street was home to the archives, and in 1998 it was relocated to its current residence in the Joseph and Rose Ages Family Building, part of the Soloway Jewish Community Centre at 21 Nadolny Sachs Private. Since 1999, the Jewish Federation of Ottawa has assumed responsibility for the archives, maintaining and preserving documents, records and photographs collected over the years. While there remains missing information and gaps in the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, the Ottawa Jewish Archives has collected over 25,000 text records

and 8,500 photographs, all donated by local residents, businesses and organizations. The materials detail the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, which began in Lowertown in the 1880s. Records from individuals, families, businesses, educational institutions, congregations and community organizations have been preserved. As some of the material is over a century old, Leonoff says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We often have to do a lot of repair work on the documents that come in, especially if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be on display.â&#x20AC;? Some of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-known families can be found in the archives, such as the Kardash family who founded the Rideau Bakery in 1930. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of family history documents stored here, and I encourage people to come check it out,â&#x20AC;? added Leonoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know what you might discover.â&#x20AC;? On June 7 and 8, 130 of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most historically, culturally and functionally signiďŹ cant buildings, many of which are not normally open to the public, will roll out the welcome mat during Doors Open Ottawa. For the ďŹ rst time, the Ottawa Jewish Archives will be one of them. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest and most anticipated architectural event is free to attend, offering unique experiences for people of all ages.

One plus three: parents describe family life after triplets Adam Kveton adam.kveton@metroland.com

Community - Amanda and Brian Archibald were preparing to welcome their second child into their home about eight years ago, when they were told it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just the one baby they would be welcoming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they were having twins. A few weeks later, it was triplets. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much else to do but laugh, said Amanda, who recalls her and Brian giggling the entire way back to their car after their second ultrasound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if we knew how to react,â&#x20AC;? said Brian. They had known a multiple birth was a possibility, as Amanda had been implanted with two embryos through in vitro fertilization, making multiples more likely. But the news meant three times the change in their lives. Eight years later, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been full steam ahead for the Archibald family as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve navigated the world of multiple birth families. With National Multiple Births Awareness day on May 28, the Archibaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opened up about their life with triplets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good,â&#x20AC;? said Amanda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just really busy, like incredibly busy.â&#x20AC;? Their children are nine- and eightyears-old now, all with their own set

of likes and dislikes, friends, sports, after school activities and more. In a lot of ways, theirs is just like any family with four children, they said, except they are nearly the same age. But, for the triplets, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discount those few minutes in between they each came to the world. When Margaret, Isobel and Ewan were born, the hospital made sure the triplets would know which minute is theirs, explained Amanda. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular practice for all multiple births, she said. Their birth minute is perhaps the ďŹ rst thing they can call their own, and helps to show that they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just triplets but individuals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you get to know them, they are completely different,â&#x20AC;? said Amanda. While Margaret and IsoADAM KVETON/METROLAND bel are identical (though Isobel is The Archibald family, from left to right Isobel, Amanda, Ewan, Shona, quick to note she is a tad shorter Brian and Margaret, stands in front of their house in Kanata Lakes on than her sister), Ewan is not, which May 15. is common in triplets, said Brian and Amanda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell them apart thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been too much of a prob- â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK, you have different physically because of their looks,â&#x20AC;? lem, though Brian and Amanda said friends.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? While teachers and others have said Amanda of her daughters, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but they have been conscious of the tentended to group the triplets together once you get to know them, they are dency to group them together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have really tried hard to fos- in the past, now Brian and Amanda completely different.â&#x20AC;? Growing the sense of individuality ter the fact that, the triplet thing, it said they recognize them as individuals. in multiple birth children is of huge doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deďŹ ne them,â&#x20AC;? said Amanda. But valuing their individuality â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even things like birthday parimportance, and is the focus of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national awareness day, ac- ties,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once that starts in doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discount their â&#x20AC;&#x153;pack mentalkindergarten, if only one got invited, ity,â&#x20AC;? which has often been a source of cording to Multiple Births Canada. For Margaret, Isobel and Ewan, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been very much like, pride for their parents.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been situations where one of them is getting picked on at school,â&#x20AC;? said Brian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They come to the aid of this other one and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk to my brother that way,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; or, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk to my sister that way.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? That â&#x20AC;&#x153;pack mentalityâ&#x20AC;? also extends to their eldest child, Shona. But just because she is the oldest doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean she is the leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is always a ďŹ ght for who is the leader of the pack,â&#x20AC;? said Amanda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That has been since birth between Ewan and Maggie,â&#x20AC;? she said. Overall, since the triplets, life has been constantly busy for the Archibalds. It has meant more sleepless nights, a bigger home, a bigger car, worries over ďŹ nances and less time. Amanda even learned to feed a baby with her feet when needed. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s those glimpses of the good people their kids are growing up to be that mean the most. For multiples families hoping to celebrate Multiple Births Awareness day, the Multiple Birth Families Association of Ottawa and Gatineau are holding a picnic at Brewers Park across from Carleton University on June 1. The event marks the birth of the Dionne quintuplets, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst set of quintuplets to survive beyond infancy. They were born on May 28, 1934. The event will include special guests, a cake and more.

With the advent of social media and on-line classiďŹ ed sales, the box of cute but unwanted kittens brought to the ofďŹ ce has been replaced with on-line ads for these surplus felines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Free to good homeâ&#x20AC;? advertisements are now disseminated much more widely and have become much more common. Is there such a thing as a free kitten? No! Once even the early costs of caring for a young animal such as sterilization, vaccination, deworming, etc. are factored in, the OHS estimates that it will cost more than $600 for a kitten and even more for a puppy in its ďŹ rst year, not including food and basic supplies. Sadly, many people are shocked by these costs, and either simply ignore the animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs or bring it to us at the humane society. That is why the Ottawa Humane Society and societies like it sterilize animals prior to adoption. Even with good adoption screening and counseling, we

cannot 100% guarantee that an animal will be well cared for once in the adopterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. But we can ensure that we are not contributing to pet overpopulation. We include other procedures like vaccination and many times, even dentistry to ensure that all the animals we adopt gets the best start for their new lives. We are able to provide all this for a cost that is far less than an adopter could obtain for themselves. Everyone, especially the cat or dog, wins. But money is not the only issue. The root cause is irresponsible human behaviour. People that take the free kitten, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sterilize it, and let it roam are a major source of unwanted litters. In an Ottawa climate, potentially one cat and her offspring can produce a stunning 172,000 kittens in only seven years. Unvaccinated cats become a reservoir of infection that eventually migrates to any place where cats come to together in

Too often, I hear people say that they let their cats breedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even multiple timesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but that it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;okayâ&#x20AC;? since they found them all homes. Over 7,000 cats end up at the Ottawa Humane Society every year. Thirty-ďŹ ve percent of them are believed to have been acquired either from a friend or relative or from some form of â&#x20AC;&#x153;free to good homeâ&#x20AC;?. Our community suffers from a major cat overpopulation problem and the people who allow their cat to breed are a large part of it. But the people who take the â&#x20AC;&#x153;free kittenâ&#x20AC;? also contribute to the problem, by either being irresponsible themselves or by sparing those that breed from the consequences of their actions. Unwanted and neglected â&#x20AC;&#x153;freeâ&#x20AC;? cats ultimately suffer and have to be euthanized by someone other than the irresponsible person that brought them into the world.

Aries, your energy is contagious this week, and others flock to you as if you have a magnetic pull. Enjoy the attention, but don’t forget to seek some solitude as well. Take precautions as you prepare for an important project, Taurus. If you rush through things, you are bound to make mistakes that could negatively impact your career. Everything you touch turns to gold this week, Gemini. You could set many things into motion with your clever ideas and infectious charisma. Stay grounded.

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!

A great idea has sidetracked you for some time now, Libra. But now it’s time to get back into your normal routine and focus on the tasks at hand. Scorpio, embrace unique ideas concerning your future this week. Consider all possibilities no matter how out of the ordinary they may seem. Practical concerns could temporarily stall plans that are a bit fantastical, Sagittarius. But don’t fret, you will have an opportunity to put some plans in motion soon enough.

An unexpected encounter stirs up some old feelings, Cancer. Enjoy your trip down Memory Lane and take advantage of this opportunity to reconnect with an old friend.

Leo, tread lightly this week when working on an important project. Expect scrutiny in all you do and plan accordingly. Keep working hard, and your efforts will be noticed. Expect the unexpected this week, Virgo. Things might seem as if they are going according to plan, but a few complications may arise so be prepared.

You may experience a conflict with others at work this week, Capricorn. It is best to roll with the punches instead of causing a stir. Allow the situation to unfold. Aquarius, a hectic few weeks at work have proven distracting. It might seem overwhelming right now, but things will settle down in a matter of days. Pisces, you may want to be invisible in the crowd this week, but that scenario simply isn’t in the cards. Grin and bear the attention
