EMC news – Four hundred years to the day that Champlain passed land now known as Orléans, the community will gather to celebrate Francophone heritage. The Orléans Franco-Ontarian Heritage and Historical Society (SFOPHO), is organizing a huge, day long celebration to mark the anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s voyage down the Ottawa River, passing Petrie Island on the way down the Ottawa Valley. “He passed the Ottawa River, and we’re sure with the nice sand (at Petrie Island) he might have stopped, but that we don’t know,” said Nicole Fortier, the society’s president. “All we know is that he did go by, and June 4 is the exact anniversary.” The day will bring together different organizations that celebrate Francophone culture. This year’s anniversary also marks 400 years of francophones living in Ottawa and the Valley, an anniversary that Toronto will celebrate in 2015. Organizations, students, and members of the general

public have all been invited to Petrie Island on June 4 for an all day celebration that starts at 11 a.m., called Adventure Champlain. Several French schools from both public and Catholic boards will be sending students, including De La Salle, Louis Riel and Gisèle-Lalonde high schools. De La Salle has participated in a special project, producing an Algonquin birch bark canoe that will be launched twice during the day, once at 10:30 a.m. and another at 6:30 p.m. The group Les St-Pierre will perform, and Elder Archie Martin will also speak. While the event celebrates Francophone culture, there will be English translations available and some of the musical performances will also be in English. Everything at the event is free except for the optional supper, which was selling tickets in advance for $8. There may be some tickets still available the day of the event, Fortier said. In case of rain, the event will still go on, as many of the activities are tented. The day runs until 9 p.m. See GALIPEAU, page 14

EMC news – Michael Wassill, a 20-year-old from Orléans, died in hospital on May 23 after suffering stab wounds at his Fernleaf Cresent home on May 15.

Distinctive Bathrooms & Kitchens

The family of Wassill said he had suffered irreversible brain damage through a statement posted on Facebook on May 19, and wasn’t expected to live. On May 23, they updated the online page to say that he had passed away.

“Today Michael passed away peacefully, lovingly surrounded by his close family. While this outcome was expected, it was no less devastating and we are all deeply mourning the loss of our son, brother, nephew, cousin, friend and hero,” said the post.

They posted the statement on a Facebook group to support Wassill, who delivered The Orléans News in his neighbourhood. Carson Morin, 20, was already charged with attempted murder after the May 15 stabbing which took place in the

afternoon. Wassill’s family members have said he was protecting a female friend who was staying at the family home. Morin’s charges could be upgraded to murder following press time once the information about Wassill’s death is given to the courts.

Robbie Murphy from Dunrobin, Chad Bush from Orléans, Barrett Neilson from Barrhaven and Will Beaugé from Rockland are some of the players named to the Ottawa Fury 2013 men’s side roster. It’s a crucial year for these players to be joining the Fury, as the club will have a professional team for 2014, a level that head coach Stephen O’Kane said all his players are capable of playing at.

From left, Emma Donnelly of Kanata, Jasmine Phillips of Nepean, Kayla Adamek of Nepean and Orléans’Lauren Hughes were all officially announced as a part of the Ottawa Fury women’s W-league team for 2013. The women range in ages, with Adamek still a Sir Robert Borden high school student, and Phillips a 26-year-old veteran goaltender.

Fury announce 2013 lineup packed with international players EMC sports – With the Ottawa Fury launching a professional team in 2014, the Ottawa Fury men’s coaches for the premier development league team had quite the carrot to dangle when recruiting this year’s men’s team. The PDL team is a level below the team that the Fury will unveil in 2014, a team many of the current TM

have to battle to earn starting spots on this year’s squad, said O’Kane. He said last year’s loss was heartbreaking – and that he, along with most of his players, would kick his grandma if it meant winning the title this year. The women’s team is in a different boat, coming into the season as defending league champions. Local women’s players include Nepean’s Jasmine Phillips and Kayla Adamek, Kanata’s Emma Donnelly, Orléans’ Lauren Hughes, Nepean High School graduate Breanna Burton and Barrhaven’s Gillian Baggot. Both Donnelly and Adamek have played through the Fury’s youth development program. “The years of being the bridesmaids are over,” said John Pugh, Fury owner. “For 2013, all we can

do is look to repeat.” Women’s head coach Dom Oliveri said that they try to not recruit not only talented players, but good people who can lead by example. The women also have several international players joining the roster, including players from Australia, New Zealand and England. “(Coaches) have worked tirelessly to bring this team to Ottawa,” Pugh said. “I know – I pay their phone bills.” The women were scheduled to play their first game on May 24 against Quebec City, while the men had a game scheduled at home on March 24 against Boston at Algonquin College. The next home game will be May 31 for the men’s team, against CFC Azul at the Algonquin College Soccer Complex at 7 p.m.

Ottawa’s future professional team. There are several local players included on the roster. Orléans is represented by former Louis Riel high school players Chad Bush and Will Beaugé, Dunrobin’s Robbie Murphy, an All Saints High School grad, and Barrett Neilson, from Barrhaven. The team also signed a number of international players, from Germany, England, New Zealand, France, United States, Sweden and Bosnia. Many of the players already boast resumes from elite club teams and colleges, with a good number having held captain honours at some point. It will be a challenge to balance so many players who are used to getting a lot of playing time, so players will

players are sure to be aiming for. “We started targeting players at the end of last season,” said men’s head coach Stephen O’Kane. “Everyone we wanted, we got.” The men play in a 23-and-under league, meaning the turnover every year is high, with rebuilding almost every year – the Fury have only seven returning men’s players. O’Kane said that many of the players on this year’s team could play at the caliber expected to be signed to

Para Transpo vehicles for one year. On May 22, council approved the temporary change to the fares that go into effect July 1. While a regular cash fare will become $3.40, Para Transpo users will instead pay $2.70. The summer fare table was designed to support the full launch of the Presto smart card, a new way to pay for rides on OC Transpo. A fare paid using the Presto card “e-purse� cash balance will cost $2.72. To encourage riders to pick up a free card and switch to the new payment method, OC Transpo set cash and ticket fares higher than buying the same trip using Presto. Transit commission chairwoman Coun. Diane Deans said the “unintended consequence� of the new fares is that “We ended up with fares that were higher for Para Transpo customers that were higher than everyone else.�

“We heard loud and clear that this was an inequitable situation,� she said. Accessibility advocate Kevin Kinsella, who brought the issue to the commission’s attention on April 17, applauded the move. “It really speaks to the flexibility and willingness of the commission and council to deal with concerns as they come up,� he said. Metrolinx, the provincial agency that oversees Presto, gave the city a discount on the system because technical glitches delayed its launch. That discount will help make up for a $150,000 loss in revenue of setting lower Para Transpo fares, Deans said. Presto cards are available now at transit stations, OC Transpo sales centres and online at prestocard.ca and will go into use as of July 1. OC Transpo is working on a standalone electronic fare payment system for Para Transpo that would also be accepted on conventional OC Transpo vehicles.

BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

EMC news - The first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) course that Cairine Wilson offers as a part of the Grade 12 exercise science class could have been the difference between life and death for the father of one student. Student Alex Carter may have saved her dad’s life, performing CPR after returning home from school on April 15 and realizing her dad was having a massive heart attack. The 911 dispatchers asked if anyone in the home was comfortable performing CPR, which Carter had learned during her class. After four days in intensive care, he was able to come home. Principal Kevin Gilmour said that the school was very proud of the student as paramedics said she may have saved her dad’s life. Exercise science teacher

Krista Corneil said she includes the certification, the standard first aid and ‘C’ level CPR, in the class as a part of the cardiovascular and respiratory system unit. The course tries to give students all certifications they can, to help with future employment and of course, in case they need to use it – like in Carter’s case. “They said if you know CPR, you should get going,” Corneil said. “So she got going.” Corneil brings in a third-party instructor to run the course, which the students pay a fee to take. All Grade 9 students at Cairine Wilson Secondary School get free basic first aid training. Corneil said that she’d like to see all the Grade 12 students at the school take the certification course that Carter took in December, because it needs to be a basic skill that everybody has. “It’s a basic skill,” she said. “It’s something that everyone should have in the back of their minds.”

We all have won

T

he city recently wrapped up another successful Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend, an event that attracts more than 40,000 participants, not to mention the hordes of onlookers who filled the streets of downtown on May 24 and 25. The statistics alone are staggering. Ottawa Race Weekend is the biggest multi-distance race event in Canada and is one of only two International Association of Athletics Federations sanctioned events in the country. Over the course of a weekend, approximately $28.7 million is pumped into the Ottawa-Gatineau economy -- not exactly chump change. Hotels book around 9,000 homes in the capital region. Race organizers are responsible for collecting 427,000 discarded drinking cups and handing out roughly 25,000 sponges to sweaty participants. It takes a volunteer work force of 2,000 people to help organize and run the races, including those who distribute water, run the information booth, and provide emergency services. Doctors, nurses, paramedics and other medical professionals volunteer their time, bringing enough equipment to set up a small hospital to service the event. When you think about it, over the course of the weekend Ottawa absorbs the population of several

small cities -- and those people require additional city services, such as police, fire services and doctors. Ottawa Race Weekend is a hallmark event that all the citizens can take pride in, a series of races with international repute, drawing some of the best athletes across the world. How fitting that the event was kicked off with a marathon torch relay run from the village of Marathon in West Carleton to city hall - a 42-kilometre trek that matches the length of a marathon run. The torch run was suggested by Greece’s ambassador to Canada, and the mayor of Marathon, Greece, travelled to Ottawa with two ceremonial torches for the relay run, giving the race weekend a little international polish. We can also take pride in the tremendous volunteer effort generated by the event. Every year, runners participating in race weekend have raised more than $1 million, money that supports 25 charities affiliated with Ottawa Race Weekend. Ottawa Race Weekend celebrates what is best in our city and its citizens. Pheidippides, a Greek soldier who inspired the concept of a marathon after he ran 40 kilometres in 490 BC to report the victory of Athens over Persia before falling over dead, said it best: “We have won.�

Experts all thumbs when it comes to the keyboard

S

omeone is always trying to invent a better mousetrap, they used to say. They don’t say it so much any more, now that I think of it. This could mean that the better mousetrap has already been invented, although I doubt it, to judge by the mice. The better mousetrap, if it is to be invented in this day and age, will probably involve lasers and the use of social media, because every new invention does. Perhaps a mouse could be lured to his doom by invitations on MouseBook, there to be confronted by a laser launched by a drone triggered by someone’s cellphone. Something you probably hadn’t thought about: the invitation on MouseBook would be sent by someone typing on his or her thumbs. Which brings us, not very neatly, to today’s topic. Every few years someone tries to reinvent the typewriter keyboard, which is what computer keyboards still have. The time has come again. This time it’s researchers at a university in Scotland who say, according to news article, that the traditional keyboard has a “suboptimal text entry interface.� This is mad scientist-speak for “you can’t type very well on it.� Except, of course, that you can. Millions, maybe billions, of people

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town over the years have used the traditional keyboard and found it quite optimal enough, once they figured it out. They way they figured it out was by practicing it, after learning which fingers go on which keys. There were typing classes in school. The keyboard we all use is known as the QWERTY system, after the arrangement of the top six letter keys for the left hand. QWERTY developed after it was discovered that the seemingly logical system of placing the keys in alphabetical order did not work well. If people typed too quickly the keys jammed up. Placing the most-used letters apart worked better. For years, mad scientists have been trying to improve on it, arguing, not without logic, that QWERTY is inefficient. But, of course, Published weekly by:

QWERTY is more efficient than other systems because people have learned how to use it. Watch a fast QWERTY typist work and try to imagine anything going faster. Some systems are inefficient but impossible to replace. How inefficient is, say, the French language, with all those genders? How inefficient is the English language, with all of those words that sound the same and are spelled differently? And how likely are we, the English- and French-speakers, to sacrifice our languages to efficiency? Mad scientists who study baseball say that the way baseball players throw in an overhand motion is unnatural. The natural way is to throw a kind of combination of underhand and sidearm. You can see how much effect this has had on baseball players. Sometimes we do things just because that’s the way we do things. And it works for us. As it turns out, this latest attempt to eradicate QWERTY coincides roughly with the 20th anniversary of text messaging. The latest knock against QWERTY is that it doesn’t work well for people who type with their thumbs. The latest solution is to put the vowels on one side of the keyboard and the consonants on the other. Now, since there are 21 consonants and only five vowels, that would make it necessary

to change some consonants into vowels for balance’s sake. In effect, the inventors of the new system, called KALQ, have done that, moving some consonants over to where the vowels are (and leaving the Y with the consonants, for some reason). The over-all effect, seen in views of the new keyboard, seems just as random as QWERTY but we are assured it is more efficient. The philosophical question so far remains unasked: Is it in the best interests of humanity to make it easier for people to type with their thumbs? Next thing you know, everyone will be throwing sidearm.

OrlĂŠans is becoming Caribbean festival destination, councillor says Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Three events held annually in OrlĂŠans are turning the area into a popular destination to experience Caribbean culture. Again this summer, Carivibe will run on June 15, Häiti en FĂŞte on July 20 and Club SOCCA Kiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for Cancer on July 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a product, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the only ones who have this product,â&#x20AC;? said OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to grow even more. We have become the Caribbean destination.â&#x20AC;? He said that the festivals are working together this year to copromote one another throughout the summer. He noted that the local hotel is always full during the festivals with out of town guests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to draw investors into OrlĂŠans,â&#x20AC;? said chamber executive director Jamie Kwong. She said it helps to show that the festivals can draw thousands of people to the area. Organizers from all three events took a few minutes to speak at a promotional press conference recently hosted by Monette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember when OrlĂŠans was very unicultural,â&#x20AC;? said Rachelle DeCoste, who spoke with organizer Edy Joachim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve watched it flourish in all itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s splendor and vivacity

and colour. We are stronger with our diversity.â&#x20AC;? The annual festivals have all already been booked for 2014, so the trio of events will be able to promote 2014â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visitors. Carivibe is the most known of the three events, and has St. Joseph Boulevard closed down for a large parade with dancers and walkers dressed in brightly coloured Caribbean dress costume. The parade is similar to of the Caribbean parade Cropover, to which celebrates the harvest season. The goal is to co-promote the festivals as a group to attract Caribbean festival goers from other parts of Ottawa and Montreal into the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One love, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get together and be alright,â&#x20AC;? said Monette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In OrlĂŠans, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll change it to one voice, one love, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get together.â&#x20AC;?

Caribbean festival organizers and volunteers in Caribbean costume for festivals stand alongside OrlĂŠans Coun. Bob Monette on May 15, after a promotional launch to the festival season.

Kevin Frost shows off his three gold medals he won at the Blind Impaired World Championship for short-track speed skating in Glasgow, Scotland.

Frost eager for competition brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC sports - Kevin Frost is probably the only international athlete who hopes his personal best times get beat – by someone else. Because that would mean the popularity of impaired speed skating had taken off and the sport was growing – hopefully in the direction of inclusion one day in the Paralympics. “That means participation is growing,” he said. “I want (skaters) to use my times as a protocol, to look at them as standards.” Frost recently returned from the Blind Impaired World Championship for short-track speed skating, which is open to blind or deaf athletes. He competed in Glasgow, Scotland, at the beginning of May. He won the 500-metre, 1,000-metre and 1,500-metre races, all three he competed in. The competition uses a points system, measuring the level of impairment of the athlete and subtracting a related amount of time from their final race times to determine the final order. Frost, who suffers from Usher syndrome, has both limited vision and hearing. He’s been competing in speed skating for years, a sport that isn’t offered at the Paralympics. By promoting the Blind Impaired World Championships, his hope is that more visually

or hearing impaired athletes will take up speed skating. He’s been working to promote his fund, the Impaired Speed Skating Association of Canada (ISSAC), which raises funds to help send skaters to impaired events. Eventually, he’d like to see Canada host an international level event – one he could compete in. “It’s a realistic, fair goal to dream about,” he said. He was encouraged when International Paralympic Committee board member Rita van Driel from the Netherlands came to the championships in Scotland to watch the races. He hopes that in 2014, there will be a longtrack championship hosted as well as shorttrack. The long-track is easier for visually impaired athletes to compete in, but not as many athletes or countries have the long track facilities to train. Frost said that in order to have speed skating added to the Paralympics, more countries will have to get involved. But it’s been a rewarding journey for the skater, who keeps up an intensive training regimen with coach Mike Rivet, and currently holds several world records for disabled speed skating. “Medals are great to win,” he said. “But making moves for the sport is bigger.”

“Milos, I am going to Break you” A mini-revolution is brewing in North America. The approach is called “Progressive Tennis.” It is imported from European countries such as France and Belgium where it was used to successfully develop players like Justine Henin-Hardenne and Olivier Rochus. Progressive Tennis uses a systematic progression of court sizes, balls, and racquets, to scale the game down to an appropriate level for 5-10 year olds. Modified racquets and balls are not new. The equipment has been around for a while, as has the “graduated length” concept. Coaches have used bits and pieces for years seeing the advantage from the perspective of success, fun and safety. The difference this time is that all these elements have been brought together in a much more systematic way than ever before. Tennis companies now carry the full line of half-court and ¾-court progressive equipment including graduated, balls, racquets, lay down lines and nets. The power of the progressive tennis system is that it allows players to play quickly and successfully. In Progressive Tennis, the philosophy is that tennis is a great and fun game to play and the quicker and more skillfully a player can play the more fun it is. Each stage not only has specific equipment to aid success, but particular skills to develop as well. It is recommended a Game-Based Approach be used. The coach’s job is to get them to play, and help them learn to play better. Simply put, “Progressive Tennis” is used as a developmental tool to allow young children to improve their overall tennis skills faster so they can transition to the regular court with more ease. The OTA, NCTA, City of Ottawa and all of our clubs are committed to helping you and your children play this great game. Sean Sweeney OTA Regional Chair said that: “All of us are committed to helping introduce over 25 000 new kids to the game of tennis by Dec 2013”. So, call or drop by one of our great clubs below and get started today. You too can crush Milos and his 242KM serve. Well maybe not but you can have a great time trying.

Slower Balls, Smaller Courts, Right sized Racquets” Get started today.

Tennis has changed, come see how!

WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE TENNIS?

• Progressive Tennis uses adjusted equipment for young participants and playing formats to match their level of play. This allows a much faster progression to truly enjoy the game. • Progressive Tennis focuses on the skill development to stimulate and maintain excitement and enjoyment. • Progressive Tennis is for ages 3 to 99+.

DID YOU KNOW?

• Tennis is rapidly growing and is becoming more popular every year. Over 600,000 new players have started playing tennis since 2010 in Canada. • In Ottawa there is 1 tennis court for every 4,300 people. The National average is 1 person every 10,000. • The biggest area of tennis growth is with children under 12.

WHAT IS THE ONTARIO TENNIS ASSOCIATION?

• The Ontario Tennis Association (OTA) is a non profit organization that promotes participation in tennis as part of a healthy lifestyle and encourages the pursuit of excellence for all players. • Their #1 goal is to attract more people to play and support tennis on a sustained basis. • For more information go to www.tennisontario.com

Welcome to Groundhog Day

H

ave you ever seen the movie Groundhog Day, where the lead character, a weatherman played by Bill Murray, experiences the same day over and over again? Well, as we get close to the end of the school year, I’m starting to feel like I’m living it – every morning at least. And this is not a good thing. Mornings at our house are, to use Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s favourite word, “ridiculous.” Each day, relying on our infant as an alarm clock, my husband and I rise around 6 a.m. We can’t seem to get the kettle on fast enough for the pot of coffee. My eldest son scampers up the stairs cheerful as a cardinal in a treetop and talking at lightning speed about everything under the sun. My younger son pulls the covers over his head. Once the caffeine hits the pleasure sensor in our brains, we are propelled into action – a rapid, interwoven dance around the kitchen – one person making breakfast, the other buried in the depths of the Tupperware cupboard. Let the chaos begin. My eldest makes superfluous noise to keep the baby entertained. The baby adds to the general and increasing chaos with her squeals and screeches of delight. My younger son pulls the covers up a little higher.

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse Midway through lunches, I start calling son-the-younger to get up, using any kind of ridiculous incentive. One particular morning, following a trip to the dentist the day prior, I shout, “You need to get up so I have time to floss your teeth after breakfast!” (As if any parent has time to floss their kids’ teeth twice a day, as the dentist recommends). There’s no response from his downstairs bedroom. We can’t yet go and retrieve him because we’re up to our elbows in oatmeal and veggie peelings. One of the adults sits down for breakfast, feeding the baby purees, which she manages to get up her nose, in her hair, in her ear, on the floor (and maybe the ceiling), and, of course, all over whatever clean outfit she’s just been changed into. The youngest child still has not emerged from the depths of the house. Finally, a sticky butter knife in hand, I tramp down the stairs and shout, “Now, it’s time to get up. Let’s go!” Generally about ten minutes after seven with just 12 minutes until we have to leave for the

bus, the younger walks about as slow as he can go up the stairs, rubbing the sleep from his eyes, still in his pyjamas! “Are you kidding me?” I send him down to get dressed, which triggers a champion temper tantrum. Miracles at work in our house, we just manage to get everybody fed, watered, dressed and somewhat clean, lace-up shoes on feet, sunscreen on faces by 7:21 a.m. There’s a lot of yelling in the short two minutes preceding our departure. We’re on our way out the door with two minutes to spare, when boythe-younger decides he has to go to the bathroom. I throw up my hands. There are some things you can’t control. Son-the-younger emerges after washing his hands for what I swear is 90 seconds. We run the two blocks to the bus stop, with me yelling, “No talking, no talking.” And watch it go by without us. The next morning we hit the repeat button. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for summer.

The Ottawa- Orléans MP, Royal Galipeau, spoke about the importance of Champlain’s first visit several years ago in the House of Commons, anticipating a large celebration for the 400th anniversary. Orléans was settled by Francophones, so it’s an important heritage event for the community, Fortier said. “In Orléans, our origins are Francophone,” she said. “So it’s a good opportunity to all organizations that promote the Francophone culture to get together and celebrate.”

Their peppery and slightly bitter nature helps to protect the fruit from unwanted bugs and can help your immunity too!

Uncle Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visits were much like Christmas

V

ery important, was my Uncle Lou. Didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he just get an award for working on the marble in the Waldorf Astoria in the big city of New York? We even had a chip to prove it. Uncle Lou it was, who at least once a year descended on our farm out in Northcote to bring us unspeakable joy. My motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, one of the four who made up her family, had no children of his own when we were youngsters, and when he came it was like Christmas all over again. Although our Christmases back then where nothing to write home about! Uncle Lou often came without telling Mother in advance. She would much prefer if he would at least send us a letter that he was on his way. Then the house could be torn apart from top to bottom, so that everything shone like glass... our feather mattress taken off the bed upstairs, the felt one from Mother and Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bed hauled up to replace it, braided rugs beaten with the broom on the clothes line, and the red and white checked oilcloth on the table in the kitchen replaced

MARY COOK Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories with a white linen one Mother had brought to the farm. But when he came unannounced, always on a Saturday, we knew he was on his way before he hit the yard. He would start blowing the horn of his big black Buick when he turned into our long lane, and never let up until he came to a screeching halt at the back door. Mother had time only to change her apron, and smooth back her hair, and then she would cry. I could never understand if she was so happy why she would cry. My sister Audrey said it was from sheer joy! I thought he looked like he should be a member of parliament. He always wore grey flannel trousers, pressed knifesharp, and flannel shirts open at the neck. Uncle Lou was tall, and as my sister Audrey once

said, he even looks important! We five children never took our eyes off the back seat of the big Buick. We knew for a fact, that inside his big brown cow-hide suitcases would be presents beyond belief. Always, there were yards of silk for Mother. And a new purse. Big. With gold clasps, and long handles. And we had no idea how he knew our sizes, but each of us would get a new piece of clothing, and everything always fit like it had been made for us! Uncle Lou would first stop at a grocery store in Renfrew, and there would be grapes and bananas, and real ham, not like we had in the smoke house, but big slices...thick...just right for sandwiches. Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheeks would be red as tomatoes, and Father, who could never understand what all the fuss was about,

would treat Uncle Lou like any other visitor who came out to the farm in Northcote. That meant he would still slurp his tea out of his saucer, and sit with his feet on the oven door at night reading the Ottawa Farm Journal or the Family Herald and Weekly Star. As the evenings wore on, Mother and Uncle Lou would talk about New York and the many years Mother lived there. And he would tell her about the changes...how the elevated trains went for miles and miles now, and how a place called the Bronx was the place to live. And Mother would listen wideeyed and ask questions, and the talk would go on and on. Uncle Lou had a wonderful singing voice, and without fail, every night Mother would get out her harmonica and he would sing and she played. And then she would set the mouth-organ aside and they would sing in harmony...songs they both knew, and my very favourite was one called, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a dream dearâ&#x20AC;? ... I thought it was very sad, but beautiful. And sometimes I would see a tear roll down Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheek when the song was over. And I knew she would be

remembering those happy years when she lived in the city she loved before she left for the backwoods of Renfrew County. Even though Uncle Lou helped Father around the farm, he never seemed to get a mark on those grey flannel pants and shirt. And every night, when he took off his shiny shoes, he buffed them with a cloth made especially for that purpose. And he had wood forms he inserted into his shoes when he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wearing them. My sister Audrey said she was quite sure all important men did the same thing with their shoes when they took them off at night. And while Uncle Lou was visiting us we would have trips into Renfrew to the picture show ... at least twice during his stay. And we would have cracker jacks to munch on during the movie, and always we stopped for ice cream on the way home at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store, which I was grateful stayed open every night until at least 11 p.m.! Too soon it would be time for Uncle Lou to pack up and head back to New York City. Whole quarters would be

thrust into each of our hands, and I knew he would give Mother a few bills too which she would immediately put in the blue sugar bowl with her egg money. Everett would swing wide the gate going out to the lane, and with the horn going full blast, Uncle Lou would spin the tires on the Buick and he was gone. And there would be such a silence in the old log house, and I would wonder if it would ever be the same again. Mother would cry silently, wiping her eyes and blowing her nose into her apron, and that night our prayers would be for Uncle Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe trip to New York. And when it came time for our silent prayers each of us were expected to say before we left Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knee, I would pray that Uncle Lou would return soon. And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only for the candy, the picture shows and the rides in the big black Buick, it was because his visit would bring Mother unspeakable joy and for a time, release her from the bonds that held her prisoner on that farm in Renfrew County.

Councillor wants to re-open casino debate Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Coun. Tim Tierney is betting that changes at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and Queen’s Park will give his fellow councillors reason to reconsider their support for a new casino in Ottawa. The Beacon Hill-Cyrville councillor will bring forward a motion on June 12 to ask city council to reconsider its decision from last fall to reopen the fiery debate over whether Ottawa should be home to a new casino, which Mayor Jim Watson would like to see in the urban area. Tierney voted against the idea of a new casino last October and he thinks re-opening the debate would give more time for the public to be involved in the discussion. He says he doesn’t favour getting rid of gambling entirely and would like to see it remain at the Rideau-Carleton Raceway. But city council gave up too much control when it voted 19-5 last October to accept a new gaming facility, Tierney said. O T T A W A

that sold us this bag of tricks isn’t there anymore,” Tierney said. The previous board didn’t give Ottawa many options when it came to support of a new casino and Tierney is hoping for more flexibility from the new board. “I’m hoping the new board will have a new direction,” he said. Ryan Kennery, spokesman for the mayor, said Watson would not support such a motion “because there is no new information on this issue.” “The OLG process remains the same as agreed to by city council last year, regardless of any changes in leadership,” Kennery wrote in an email. While other municipalities such as Kingston have found File a way to be more prescriptive Changes at Queen’s Park and the OLG open the door to re- about the conditions under which a casino would be acconsider gambling facility, says Coun. Tim Tierney ceptable, Ottawa just said In the last two weeks, To- “yes” with no conditions, With a new premier at the helm of the province and ronto city council rejected Tierney said. “(Kingston) protected their a complete turnover of the OLG’s proposal for a new board overseeing the OLG, casino there and the entire downtown,” he said. “I’m still now is the time to look at OLG board resigned after the foggy on why weren’t able to whether Ottawa made the chairman, Paul Godfrey, was do the same thing. “We haven’t had a proper decision in too much haste, ousted. “The old board and chair dialog,” Tierney said. “You Tierney said.

R E G I O N A L

C A N C E R

can claim we did, but it hasn’t happened.” The province proposed another change recently: an altered gaming facility funding formula that would put additional money into the city’s coffers by sharing four per cent of revenue from gaming tables with municipalities. That also changes the situation, Tierney said. The councillors who voted against the casino last October said there are too many unknowns at the time. “Me and other colleagues felt it didn’t pass the sniff test,” Tierney said. Last fall, Capital Coun. David Chernushenko voted against the casino and said there wasn’t any evidence or research in favour of a gambling facility that could outweigh the cacophony of negative comments from his constituents. “Once a big project gets going, it becomes awfully hard to apply the brakes,” Chernushenko said last year. Part of the problem was that neither city staff nor councillors fully understood the level of input the city will

have into where a new casino would be located. The city definitely has veto power over OLG’s proposed casino location and it has the final say on rezoning any land that a proponent wants to build a casino on. But what is more vague is the city’s level of influence over suggesting where it would prefer to see a casino. The gaming corporation will run a call for proposals and choose the best casino plan and location. Last fall, Orléans Coun. Bob Monette asked whether council could have any input before that decision is made. For instance, he asked if the city could be presented with the top three options, allowing council to indicate to the gaming corporation which one was most likely to be approved. The mayor and city manager couldn’t give a firm answer about what level of influence city council would have over that process, other than simply saying “no.” Councillors would have to vote on re-opening the debate at the June 26 council meeting.

Red Carpet Gala returns to fight heart disease Award at the age of six. Kelsey took the fear and sadness she felt as a result of her family’s misfortune and turned it into a positive thing, vowing to do her part to make heart disease a rarer occurrence than it currently is. So began The Red Carpet Gala, a modest fundraiser she started last year that brought friends and community members together for dancing and fun, helping to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The gala is returning this year on June 2, this time to be held at the Jack Purcell Com-

EMC news – Few families remain untouched by heart disease, and no one knows that better than eight-year-old Kelsey Black of Orléans. Kelsey lost her grandfathers to heart disease and has a teenage brother, Diego, who is awaiting surgery for a heart condition. Her father, Bill, once suffered a minor heart attack. Kelsey also once called paramedics when her mother, Maria, passed out, an action that won her a 9-11 Children’s Achievement

munity Centre in Centretown. Kelsey sent invitations to dignitaries ranging from Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson to the prime minister and even the Queen, from whom she received a reply. “She wrote to thank me for inviting her, but she can’t attend as she’s too busy,” said Kelsey. An Ottawa paramedic by the name of Patrick, whom Kelsey met during her 911 call and views as her “favourite paramedic”, is also invited, and was asked to “bring the rest of the gang.” Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais, who suffered a severe heart attack last year, has also been invited. Maria Black instantly supported her daughter’s efforts to raise funds for the very worthy cause, but made her wait until she turned seven first. “When she was six I felt she was too little,” said Black, who expects an even bigger turnout for this year’s event. “We want people to know what happened to us can happen to anyone.” Black’s son was a patient at CHEO as a youth. Now 18, he has to wait until he turns 21 for surgery to repair his heart. Black, like Kelsey, hopes that science progresses to the point where surgery

Maria and Kelsey Black are busy these days, putting the finishing touches on Kelsey’s June 2 Red Carpet Gala in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Kelsey, seen here with her 9-1-1 Children’s Achievement Award, started the event last year as a response to a family history of heart disease. would become unnecessary, or at least less intrusive. Both recognize that medical advances in this field can’t occur without adequate funding, which is the catalyst behind the gala itself. Black said she has received support from local businesses during the event’s preparation. Mother and daughter are making a traditional piñata to bring to the gala, and are soliciting donations of candy

to fill it with. While organizing the gala is a lot of work, the Blacks know it’s worth it. They envision a future where children aren’t missing parents or grandparents due to heart disease. “It’s a lot of work but we do whatever we can do, and we are happy to do it.” said Black. Doors to The Red Carpet Gala open at 1 p.m. on June

2. The cost is $5 in advance or $7 at the door, and includes entry and a ticket for the door prize. All proceeds go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. For more information, or to order tickets, contact kelseyblackheartandstroke@ yahoo.ca.

In the latest chapter in the legal saga between the city and Groupe Claude Lauzon, the developer has appealed a court order to hand over an engineering report that reportedly states Lauzonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building at 287 Cumberland St. is unsafe and should be demolished. what it planned to build on the site, which is a requirement of the heritage district policies that apply to the neighbourhood. Lauzon received the engineering report in question on Feb. 1, and that set off the latest chapter in the troubled relationship between the developer and the city. The city ordered barricades be put up to keep pedestrians and trafďŹ c away from the build-

ing in case it fell down. That led to the court application, which states â&#x20AC;&#x153;demolition is now a pressing and immediate concern and demolition should now be undertaken as soon as possible.â&#x20AC;? In the court application, Lauzon took issue with whether the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building inspector could order an engineer hired by Lauzon to hand over documents related to the condition of the

building. The school was unsafe for inspectors to enter, and therefore the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building inspectors canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any orders, the application states. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case, according to city ofďŹ cials, and inspectors were able to enter the building before the court application was even ďŹ led, Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury said at the time.

EMC news - An Ottawa developer is appealing a court order to hand over an engineering report to the city. A lawyer for Groupe Claude Lauzon has said the report bolsters the developerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument that its building at 287 Cumberland St. is structurally unsound and should be torn down. On May 8, a superior court judge ordered Lauzon to give the city the report, which was commissioned by Lauzon and prepared by a private engineering ďŹ rm. But on May 22, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clerk and top lawyer sent a memo informing city council that Lauzon is appealing that order. Lauzon ďŹ led an application to Ontario Superior Court on Feb. 20 asking for permission to tear down the building at 287 Cumberland St., which has remained in disrepair for decades. The application states the city has known since 2005 that the building has â&#x20AC;&#x153;signiďŹ cant structural concernsâ&#x20AC;? and did nothing. Groupe Claude Lauzon wants to tear the school down and put up condos, but the city refused the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demolition application in 2006 because Lauzon did not provide plans for

Map out your cycling and walking routes for Liveable Ottawa Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Do you walk or cycle to get around Ottawa? The city wants to hear from you. Interactive surveys that let people draw their frequent routes are now online and will help guide how the city deďŹ nes its active-transportation network for the next two decades. Two versions of the survey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one focused on walking and one on bicycling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are available at ottawa.ca/ liveableottawa until June 7 as part of the Liveable Ottawa OfďŹ cial Plan and master plan updates. The surveys allow respondents to identify areas where sidewalks, pathways or cycling lanes are missing and needed. People can use the interactive maps to draw their frequent bicycle trips and to identify roads or intersections that are dangerous or uncomfortable for pedestrians or cyclists to navigate. The survey tool helps deďŹ ne what â&#x20AC;&#x153;typeâ&#x20AC;? of cyclist you are by asking how comfortable you are on roads, cycling lanes and pathways. The pedestrian and cycling survey is the second phase of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online engagement strategy for the Liveable Ottawa consultation. The ďŹ rst survey launched in January and ran until March. It focused on general questions such as what people like about their neighbourhood and why

Old Ottawa East, Carleton University and Dowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake had the highest participation, with 500 respondents from those neighbourhoods. OrlĂŠans was the second highest with 252 respondents, followed by Lowertown, San-

dy Hill and the University of Ottawa with 248. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since answering the questions was not mandatory, it is not possible to know where residents stopped completing the survey,â&#x20AC;? city public engagement specialist Barbara Backland wrote in an email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The survey was broken down into sections, so residents could have skipped around the survey and answered whatever was of interest to them.â&#x20AC;? The city also held a public open house in January that attracted 179 people, a development forum with 31 industry representatives and a community forum with 110 representatives in February. Those consultations will guide revised recommendations for updates to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OfďŹ cial Plan that will be tabled at planning committee on June 25. A draft report outlining how pedestrian, cycling, transit and road projects are prioritized will be tabled at the transportation committee in July. Consultation on both the transportation master plan priorities and the OfďŹ cial Plan amendments will continue throughout the summer, with council consideration and voting scheduled to take place in October and November. The entire exercise should be wrapped up by mid-December.

There are many over-the-counter products that help solve ďŹ&#x201A;ea problems such as ďŹ&#x201A;ea sprays (both for the pet and environment), shampoos, or collars. While the costs may be lower for over-the-counter products ($5 to $30), they often need to be reapplied to solve a ďŹ&#x201A;ea infestation. 0RESCRIPTION ONLY SOLUTIONS SUCH AS TOPICAL TREATMENTS !DVANTAGE 2EVOLUTION ORPILLS0ROGRAM 3ENTINEL AREMOREEXPENSIVEANDREQUIRE a vet visit for a prescription. They are usually dispensed in a six-month package, to be applied monthly for the ďŹ&#x201A;ea season. They are safer, easier and more effective than over-the-counter products. These products often have additional beneďŹ ts, such as heartworm protection and tick, lice and mite infestation prevention. Because of their ease of use, their safety, and their effectiveness, they are highly recommended. It is important to read all of the instructions carefully before using any ďŹ&#x201A;ea-control product. Follow all the instructions. Never use ďŹ&#x201A;ea productions designed for dogs on cats, and vice versa. When in doubt, contact your veterinarian.

Fleas, an annual external parasite, are mostly harmless. The biggest problem caused by ďŹ&#x201A;eas is itching. However, some pets or people may be allergic to ďŹ&#x201A;ea saliva, which causes ďŹ&#x201A;ea allergy dermatitis (super-itchy spots with hair-loss); young, sick or elderly pets can become anemic from too much blood loss. These wingless insects are capable of jumping long distances. While cat and dog ďŹ&#x201A;eas prefer to feast on animal blood, they will turn to a human host if needed.

Scorpio, things beyond your control may be contributing to sour feelings this week. Look at the bright side of any situation and you can probably find a solution that works.

You may find that one of your coworkers is more critical of your work than usual, Gemini. Don’t take it the wrong way, as constructive criticism can be a good thing.

Try to get outside as much as possible this week, Capricorn. The fresh air and sunshine can do wonders for your mood. Plus, you can get in some exercise.

Leo, remain modest about your personal and professional accomplishments this week. Now is not the time to show off. Be humble in your conversations.

Do not follow the examples of others when they act irrationally to a certain situation, Aquarius. Although it can be difficult, you need to take the high road.

Virgo, as inviting as a situation may look, appearances can be deceiving. You may want to dip your toe into the water before you dive right into something.

Take a chance and express all of your goals and hopes this week, Pisces. Others may be surprised at what you have to say.

Writing my own happy ending with CHEO’s help

By Vienna Arbic with Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

My name is Vienna and I am nine years old. I’m in grade three, play defense on my hockey team, and enjoy doing crafts and writing stories. I love spending time with my parents Sherry and Richard Arbic, and my friends. And I have cancer.

involved. I wouldn’t need lumbar punctures and I could be home with my parents and my dogs instead of in the hospital. I’d be playing hockey and graduating grade three with everyone in my class. If this were a story I made up, it’d be funny like the Robert Munsch books that I love so much. But cancer is serious.

they knew something was wrong with me, had it not been for the concussion itself and for the team of CHEO neurologists, endocrinologists and oncologists who care for me, my story could have had a sad ending.

One day at hockey practice I hurt my head and ended up with a concussion. I had all the classic symptoms, and even after the prescribed rest period I was not getting better. I was sleeping 18 hours a day, falling asleep at school and again later in the afternoon. I had severe headaches that even the pain medicine would not relieve. I had no short-term memory and my parents say I just wasn’t myself.

But now, there’s hope.

So my parents took me to CHEO. An endocrinologist ordered a CT scan and it detected a tumor in the center of my brain that was pressing against my thyroid, pituitary and hypothalamus glands causing fluid to build up. Then Dr. Vassilyadi, a CHEO neurosurgeon, installed a shunt in my brain to drain the fluid and relieve the pressure; that’s when I started to feel much better.

My ‘real’ life had to be put on hold while the doctors at CHEO help me get rid of cancer. Mine is called Germ cell tumor, a very rare form of brain cancer - and I want it to go away.

The oncologists told us that Germ cell tumors in the brain are very rare but the good news is that they usually respond well to radiation; although some do need a mix of radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. In my case, we quickly started with chemotherapy.

If this were a story I came up with, there wouldn’t be a port-a-cath, operations and chemotherapy

Had it not been for my parents’ persistence to push for physicians to investigate further because

Chemotherapy is not fun - it actually makes me very sick. I lost my hair and I look very different because of the cortisone, but it is helping me get better. It is shrinking the size of my tumor, and that is great news! Once the last cycle of chemotherapy will be finished, we’ll start radiation therapy to help reduce the tumor even more and hopefully make it go away forever. I hope we’re done by the end of the summer so I can start my hockey season and go back to school. Mom and dad have already found special hockey equipment that will protect my port (where the doctors inject the medications). I can’t wait to get back to my real life. Until then, I will take my medicine, continue chemo and rest so my body can fight cancer and I can get better. It’s funny because I’ve always wanted to become a doctor when I grow up. Now, as mom says, I’m getting an insider’s view and that will help make me be a great doctor someday. I also want to keep writing, so maybe I’ll become a doctor-writer. But one thing is certain: my stories will always have happy endings. Just like this one will.

Retired educator gives back following cancer treatment at TOH By Tracey Tong

The first sign of cancer appeared suddenly for Duncan Ferguson. Ferguson—a retired principal with the OttawaCarleton District School Board and a part-time instructor at the University of Ottawa—was sitting in a Barrhaven classroom in 2008 when he developed a sudden and unrelenting pain in his back. “I thought I had twisted it,” he recalled, “It was so painful I had to leave class.” He visited his family doctor and tests revealed that Ferguson had Stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “It was a shock,” he said. By that time, the cancer had already spread to his lymph nodes and doctors thought it might be too advanced for treatment.

He was admitted to The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre, where he started the first of eight chemotherapy sessions in March 2008. “Family and friends were there for my family,” said Ferguson. “Our freezer always had casseroles. It was an amazing experience in that way. The support of our friends and neighbours was absolutely phenomenal.” Now recovered, the 76-year-old father and grandfather has been looking for ways to give back – not just for himself, but because cancer has hit his family hard. His father is a prostate cancer survivor, and years ago, his brother, Carl, succumbed to rectal cancer at age 30. Once a week he volunteers at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre as a volunteer trainer, and last year, be began an EMC newspaper route, donating all of his earnings to Dr. John Bell’s cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. He has also signed up to fundraise for The Ottawa Hospital.

“When you have cancer, you need to remain optimistic,” Ferguson said. “People living with cancer can’t spend their lives concentrating on the disease. With my paper route and volunteering, my mind is not on the cancer, it’s on making it better.”
