News - Police have identified David Woodard, 45, of Orléans, as the driver of the bus that collided with a Via train on Sept. 18. The crash – which killed five men and one woman between the ages of 21 and 57 – left 34 people injured. Woodard’s wife Terry posted an emotional goodbye to her husband of 25 years on her Facebook page the day of the accident. “Today I lost my HUSBAND the love of my LIFE my best friend the father of my daughter and a great step DAD to the boys ... I don’t know what to say ... I want him back so much ... MISS you BABY ... be always in my prayers in my mind, but most of all in my heart ... life is not the same without you here ...”

City devastated by tragedy: mayor Continued from page 1

Craig Watson, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 279 said Woodard had been on the job for 10 years and had a good driving record. “He’s a nice guy,” Watson said. “Any of the drivers who know him will tell you he’s one of the nice guys.” Watson described Woodard as a family man. He said the whole city is hurting as a result of the accident. “This is devastating for the whole city and our hearts and prayers go out to anyone in the city whose been affected by this tragedy,” he said.

David Woodard, left is pictured with his wife Terry. David, 45, was identified by police as the driver of the OC Transpo bus that collided with a Via train near Fallowfield Station on Sept. 18.

Thirty one people sent to hospital

Paramedic chief Anthony

DiMonte said thirty-one people were sent to hospital immediately following the crash. Three more people who left the scene of the crash later went to hospital. One person died in hospital before noon and 10 more were still in critical condition.

Any of the drivers who know him will tell you he’s one of the nice guys. Craig Watson president Amalgamated Transit Union Local 279

Calline Au, a spokesperson for the Queensway Carleton Hospital said five patients who turned up at hospital on their own after the crash were released. Four were brought in by ambulance and one of those has been released. Two

patients had already undergone orthopedic surgery. Au said one patient was waiting to undergo surgery for a minor fracture on the morning of Sept. 19. The Montfort received 17 patients in less critical condition, while the Civic and General campuses of the Ottawa Hospital received four patients each via ambulance from the crash site. EYEWITNESS REPORTS

Eric Nelson, a University of Ottawa student who was on the route 76 express bus going to class, said the passengers were yelling at the bus driver to stop just seconds before the impact. “We were about to cross the rail line and the safety arm had come down,” he said. “I looked over at the cars on Woodroffe all the other cars had stopped. That’s when he stomped on the brakes, but it

was too late.” The bus hit a slow-moving, Toronto-bound train, forcing it off the tracks. Transit Safety Board investigator Glen Pilon said that the train contained a “black box” which would give information such as speed of travel at the time of the collision. Because of the severity of the incident, an investigation into the collision has already begun. Mayor Jim Watson said he has directed city officials to work “as co-operatively as possible” with the investigation to find out what led to the crash and how to prevent similar incidents in the future. “Obviously any deficiencies that are found on any of our roads or crossings or vehicles, of course we’d take immediate action,” he said.

Bus passenger finds religion after crash Six confirmed fatalities in collision between bus, Via train jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

News - Seconds before he saw the front of the bus he was riding on disappear Eric Nelson asked himself why the driver hadn’t hit the brakes. “We were about to cross the rail line and the safety arm had come down,” he said. “I looked over at the cars on Woodroffe all the other cars had stopped. That’s when he stomped on the brakes, but it was too late.” Nelson was one of the dozens of passengers on an OC Transpo bus struck by a train near Fallowfield station on Sept. 18. Seated about two rows behind the front stairwell at the top of the double-decker 76 express, Nelson said the first three rows of the bus were wiped away by the westbound Via train when the two collided. He added the bus was likely 90 per cent full. Amanda Brooks, 20, who spoke to the press with cheeks smeared by tears and dirt, said passengers were screaming at the driver to stop. Nelson said it was akin to a religious experience for him. He says timing and luck saved him from being one of the fatalities. “If we had crossed two seconds later we would have missed it,” he said. “Two seconds earlier and it would have hit the middle of the bus and done a lot more damage.” Once the bus stopped, passengers made for the exit, which was tough because the stairwell was pretty much demolished, Nelson said. “We had to kind of hold the door up to get it out, because it was leaning on its side,” he said. When he got off the bus, he

described the carnage on the train tracks as a war scene. “There were blood and limbs everywhere. There were people who were obviously very injured. I hope they survived. One guy flew 10 metres down the tracks during the crash so I doubt he did,” Nelson said. Police, fire services and paramedics rushed to the scene of the crash – where Woodroffe Avenue crosses the Via Rail train tracks at 8:48 a.m.

Hospital said five patients who turned up at hospital on their own after the crash were released. Four were brought in by ambulance and one of those has been released. Two patients had already undergone orthopedic surgery. Au said one patient was waiting to undergo surgery for a minor fracture on the morning of Sept. 19. The rest of the injured were transported to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, the Montfort and the Civic and General campuses of the Ottawa Hospital. Hours later, Nelson was still in the parking lot of the train station with his pregnant

wife. As soon as he got off the bus Nelson texted his wife that there had been a major accident. She called him six times before he heard the phone and picked up. “It was hard to text because my hands were still shaking,” he said, adding he later called his boss and took the day off. Robert Evraire, who was standing on the platform at the time waiting for the train at Fallowfield station, said he noticed the train’s headlight went out. Then he looked up and noticed the front of the train slide to the right, accompanied by flying debris and smoke.

“It hits you in the gut,” he said. “I could’ve been on that train.” Heather Hogan, who was about to board the train for Kingston, said the same thing. “I could have gotten on the train downtown and then I would have been on it,” she said. Hogan, who was on the platform as well, remembered the sounds of the crash. “First I heard this loud bang, then awful screeching,” she said, adding she didn’t know at first that the bus had been hit.

“It looked like the bus was in the safe zone from where I was,” she said, adding she saw what she thought was the train’s conductor stick his head out the window to survey the damage. Hogan called 911 immediately upon seeing the crash. She said her first thought was for the people on board the train. “You hear of trains derailing or you see it in the movies, but I never thought I would see it,” she said. The picture was much different from inside the train said one man who identified himself as Ntuk. He was going to Toronto when he saw a blur and heard what he described as a series of bumps. “It stopped and then I realized we were off the tracks,” he said. DRIVER

Jan Harder returned to the Sportsplex after a brief press conference downtown. “I’ve got one focus and that’s the people who were on the bus and the people whose family members were there,” Harder said. “That bus 76 goes entirely through my ward and for me it’s all about my community today.” A double-decker bus can hold up to 90 people, but it is not known how many were aboard the bus when the crash occurred, said OC Transpo general manager John Manconi. David Fraser, a disaster management volunteer with

the Canadian Red Cross, said a dozen volunteers had been dispatched to help reunite passengers with their families. “People come in and give their information about their identity and that of the person they’re looking for and we try to connect them,” he said. “We also have volunteers here just to listen and to offer counselling.” Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod also planned to spend time with the victims. She left Queen’s Park after announcing the tragedy in the legislature. Her constituency office is in sight of the crash scene. “It’s the longest trip I’ve ever taken home,” MacLeod said. “I have a lot of different thoughts … I feel hollow – just thinking of how this could have happened, and thinking of those who are still wondering where their loved ones

are. She plans to visit the station and staging area at the Nepean Sportsplex when she gets into the city. Const. Marc Soucy, a spokesperson with the Ottawa police, said grief counselling and victim services were on hand for the family members. He added those on board the train and bus were spread out across the city and were being interviewed by police and the Transportation Safety Board. Safety board investigator Glen Pilon said that the train contained a “black box” which would give information such as speed of travel at the time of the collision. Because of the severity of the incident, an investigation into the collision has already begun. The investigation could take months, said Jean Laporte, chief operating officer for the

2014 FORESTER 2.5i Starting $ Lease $ For 24 From 27,923* Payment 248 Months*

Transportation Safety Board. He said it is too early in the investigation to comment on questions about whether the bus driver was braking at the time of the collision or whether the bus drove through and damaged the rail-crossing gates. Pilon said that safety at crossings where trains and vehicles could potentially meet was already on the board’s safety watchlist, a document created in 2010. The watchlist indentifies the riskiest safety issues for Canadians, each of which has found “that action taken to date are inadequate, and that industry and regulators need to take additional concrete measures to eliminate the risks,” said the safety board’s website. The watchlist recommended in 2010 that Transport Canada implement new crossing regulations, develop enhanced standards for certain types of crossing signs, and improve public awareness of the dangers at railway crossings. If any safety deficiencies are identified at the Woodroffe crossing during the course of the Transportation Safety Board’s investigation, they would be identified to the relevant agencies and made public, Laporte said. However, the board does not have the authority to enforce any regulations or recommendations for corrective action. Watson said he has directed city officials to work “as cooperatively as possible” with the investigation to find out what led to the crash and how to prevent similar incidents in the future. “Obviously any deficiencies that are found on any of our roads or crossings or vehicles, of course we’d take immediate action,” the mayor said.

HolaEcuador: A Canadian beachfront development in Ecuador

Enjoy a year-round tropical paradise in a secure, comfortable environment

Gordon Poole, Co-Owner of HolaEcuador, one of the Canadians taking part in the project.

Tired of scraping your windows and shovelling snow? Escape to the warmth and charm of Ecuador! Home to the world-famous Galápagos Islands, millions of hectares of untouched rainforests, massive Andes mountains and hundreds of kilometres of pristine beaches, Ecuador is finding its place on the world stage as a top-tier destination. But it’s not just the weather that’s hot in Ecuador — the real estate market is cooking too, and a Canadian company is making it easy to own a beachfront paradise of which dreams are made. HolaEcuador Property Development Inc. develops and sells beach properties on the Pacific coast of Ecuador. Mirador San Jose — the largest of HolaEcuador’s projects — has over 1600 lots to choose from. Managed by Canadian owners and investors, Mirador San Jose is the perfect winter escape, retirement project, investment and/or rental property opportunity.

Why Ecuador?

Unparalleled mix of nature and culture Where else can you visit a volcano on horseback in the morning, meet tribal elders at an Amazonian jungle resort in the afternoon and finish the day with a seafood dinner in an

oceanfront restaurant? One of the most biodiverse places on the planet, Ecuador is the ideal location for outdoor activities such as all types of water sports, biking, fishing, hiking and nature-gazing. Need a fix of culture and culinary wonders? The capital city Quito, perched among volcanoes in the Andes mountains at 9,350 feet boasts the UNESCO World Heritage colonial district, with architecture, restaurants and nightlife that rival the best of European cities. Fantastic climate The climate in Ecuador is ideal all year long, without the extreme wet seasons that are common to the tropics. Being located on the equator, the country never experiences the devastating hurricanes and major tropical storms that are commonplace in regions such as Mexico and Florida. The average temperature varies between 23C and 28C and the water temperature in front of Mirador San Jose is 23C or more, throughout the year. Excellent investment In addition to all the great lifestyle advantages of being in Ecuador, it is also an incredible investment opportunity not to be overlooked. “We have many property owners that missed the Costa Rica boom and are very pleased to find that it’s still possible to acquire a property

Full ownership homes? yes! Lots from $15,000 Beach Properties

Ottawa Saturday, September 28th at 1pm Travelodge Hotel Ottawa 1376 Carling Avenue, Ottawa

Owning property at the Mirador San Jose is ideal for those looking to diversify their investment portfolio. The value of the lots at the development has increased on average by 45 per cent over the last two years. And there are no taxes on capital gains on the occasional sale of properties in Ecuador, even for second and third residences, which makes investing in Ecuadorian real estate and interesting alternative to the stock markets. Further, property owners can take advantage of the property value increase while generating rental income.

Welcome to Mirador San Jose Mirador San Jose is located 60 kilometres south of Eloy Alfaro International Airport in the port city of Manta and just minutes north of Machalilla National Park, a spectacular jungle and marine park. Accessible by the Routa del Sol, a brand new highway built specifically to cater to the region’s growing tourist population, Mirador San Jose consists of over 1600 lots on a 130-acre, master planned, gated beachfront property. The development features all basic services (water, sewage, electricity) running underground, as well as domestic waste and sewage recycling, high speed Internet, plenty of parks, playgrounds and recreational areas with tennis courts, soccer field and swimming pools. Further, there are three sectors within the development zoned for restaurants, bars, shops, boutiques, cafés, grocery stores and a medical centre. “You’re not buying a cottage lot; these are full ownership properties in a resort town,” says Mr. Poole. “Fully serviced lots a short 10-minute walk from the beach are available for under $15,000. It’s very difficult to find this value and quality elsewhere in the world, which is why our properties are sell-ing quickly. Of the 700+ home sites sold to

date, more than 450 have been purchased by Canadians, and the remainder mainly by Ecuadorians. Since September 2012 alone, 60 home sites have been snapped up by OttawaGatineau residents.” Once clients have secured their lot, HolaEcuador will help them build the beach home of their dreams. “We offer many home models for all tastes and budgets,” says Mr. Poole. “We also offer custom house and condominium design services. Our architects and engineers work with clients to make their dream house a reality, at prices that are a fraction of what they would pay in North America. Luxurious homes can be built in Ecuador for US$75 to $95 per square foot. We have nice little two-bedroom bungalows that are available for only $55,000 and larger, two-story luxurious homes with private pool available for $161,900 — land and taxes included!”

HolaEcuador Property Development Inc.

HolaEcuador Property Development Inc. is owned and operated by Canadians with offices in Trois-Rivières and Gatineau, QC and Manta, Ecuador, with regional sales representatives across Eastern Canada. Coowner Gordon Poole lives in the Ottawa area and makes frequent visits to the Mirador San Jose project, where a team of Canadian and Ecuadorian professionals are permanently located. “Nearly half of our clientele comes from referrals from existing customers, which demonstrates how excited property owners are to be part of this community,” says Mr. Poole. “Our property owners vary from adventurers in their 20s to pre-retirees in their 40s and 50s who are buying property now, while it’s still affordable. Some intend to use their property for vacationing only, while others are planning to use it as a rental income investment. Certain clients see property ownership in Ecuador as a means to stretch their vacation and investment dollars further, while others are simply looking to escape the cold winters. Here in Ecuador you can do both.” HolaEcuador will be holding a free informational seminar on the lifestyle and financial benefits of property ownership in Ecuador on September 28 and October 3.

in an oceanfront development such as ours,” says Gordon Poole, co-owner of HolaEcuador. “In fact, real estate prices in Ecuador match those of Costa Rica of 15 years ago.” Indeed, many people dream of owning a property in the tropics, but the capital costs can be significant. Property in Ecuador, however, is absolutely within the reach of many Canadians’ budget. Ecuadorians enjoy the lowest cost of living in all of South America, a high standard of living and a stable, democratic government.

City fought against separating Woodroffe from train tracks Laura Mueller

laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - The city fought for years to avoid the expense of separating the Transitway and Woodroffe Avenue from train tracks where a deadly bustrain collision took six lives on Sept. 18. City records show a gradeseparated rail crossing was recommended as long ago as 1999, when environmental study report looked at constructing the southwest Transitway extension. Still, the city continued to try and convince Canadian National Rail, which operated the line at the time, that an atgrade option would be best. The city proposed a number of options using “advanced signalized conditions.” CN sent an “emphatic refusal” for an at-grade crossing in a letter dated May 8, 2001, citing concerns about traffic volume and train speeds. By 2003, the city had agreed to separate bus, vehicle and train traffic. Council authorized $12.4 million towards the $40-million project to grade-separate the crossing. The idea of building a bus overpass was thrown out because the soil had poor capacity to bear bridge approach supports and the “vigorous” opposition of nearby residents on Fallowfield Road and the National Capital Commission, which would not accept the visual intrusion of an overpass. But a detailed geotechnical investigation revealed a potentially catastrophic situation: according to a 2003 city report, unusually high groundwater flow patterns in the bedrock under the tracks could lead to “catastrophic failure” and possible severe impact in Barrhaven homes. Continuous pumping and a “massive”

amount of concrete would be required if an underpass was built, according to a detailed safety assessment conducted in 2004. “It was determined that in view of the magnitude of this condition, the conventional open-cut underpass option should be abandoned due to an unacceptable risk,” the report reads. Beyond that, the cost to make an underpass option feasible would have been exorbitant: $111 million, with more than $80 million of that bill falling to the city to pick up. The city was able to convince CN the level crossing was the best option. Two factors led to the change in attitude, according to a city report: the “exorbitant costs” of grade separation, as well as the changed train-speed conditions in the area thanks to the addition of a station at Fallowfield. That freed up grant money to be used for other projects, including such things as the completion the southwest Transitway to Fallowfield station and the widening of Fallowfield Road to Greenbank Road. At the time, Barrhaven Coun. Jan Harder credited city staff’s “creativity” in convincing Via Rail that the road could be widened at grade, which allowed the other projects to move forward. Harder could not be reached for comment about the crossing after the crash. A draft safety report prepared in 2004 showed the atgrade crossing would have “a high level of safety exceeding that of the existing crossing” at the time. City manager Kent Kirkpatrick couldn’t immediately answer questions about how frequently the safety of that crossing must be studied.

Via Rail, which now operates the line, commissioned a study earlier this year that looked at the Fallowfield station and train speeds, Kirkpatrick said. The city commented on the terms of reference, but that’s all he could say about the study during news conferences on the day of the crash. The gates at the crossing are maintained by a contractor, Rail Term, which is hired by Via Rail, Kirkpatrick said.

It was determined that in view of the magnitude of this condition, the conventional open-cut underpass option should be abandoned due to an unacceptable risk City 2003 report

Gurbakhshish Singh Bal, an OC Transpo operator, said he has never had any issues operating a bus on the Transitway at the rail crossing. “It’s a very wide vision. You can see it very clear from far,” he said. “I don’t know what happened.” Singh Bal said at the Woodroffe crossing, the train would usually be going slow because it would either be arriving at or leaving Fallowfield station. “They’re not fast, fast, fast coming. The lights are always working, everything is working. So I don’t find any problem.” According to the 2004 safety study, 12 passenger trains passed through that crossing. That number was expected to rise to 16 trains a day in both directions.

on the Transportation Safety Board’s safety watchlist, a document created in 2010, said safety board investigator Glen Pilon. Between 2003 and 2012, there were 2,162 crossing accidents on Canada’s federallyregulated railways, which resulted in 266 fatalities and 346 serious injuries. The watchlist indentifies the riskiest safety issues for Canadians, each of which has found “that action(s) taken to date are inadequate, and that industry and regulators need to take additional concrete measures to eliminate the risks,” said the safety board’s website. The watchlist recommended in 2010 that Transport Canada implement new crossing regulations, develop enhanced standards for certain types of crossing signs, and improve public awareness of the dangers at railway crossings. The crash is raising questions about other level crossings in the city – some of which have no protective devices like the Woodroffe crossing features. In a newsletter to constituents, Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said she is asking questions about the safety of unprotected rail crossings, including where tracks cross Goulbourn Forced Road and Klondike Road. Wilkinson asked the city to install stop signs where the tracks cross Goulbourn Forced Road but was told signs couldn’t be placed there because there is no cross street, Wilkinson wrote to residents. She’s pushing the issue at city hall, but in the meantime, she is advising people to slow down or stop to make sure the way is clear before proceeding across the tracks.

The investigation could take months, said Jean Laporte, chief operating officer for the safety board.

• Downloading and examining data from the locomotive event recorder and any GPS or other data available from the bus While the safety board doesn’t have the authority to enforce any recommendations it might make to improve the crossing’s safety, Mayor Jim Watson said the city will look to comply with any suggestions. Any pressing safety concerns identified during the course of the investigation will be made public, Laporte said.

A team of 11 investigators from the TSB are on the site of the crash and will search for answers by: • Examining and documenting the accident site • Assessing and photographing the wreckages of the train and bus • Examining the crossing, its design and the sight lines of the track from the road • Determining whether warning systems at the crossing (bells, lights, barriers, whistles, etc.) were functioning correctly

Coping with tragedy

T

he awful events of Sept. 18 cost six people their lives. Naturally we all have questions about what went wrong when a double-decker OC Transpo bus struck a Via train near Fallowfield Station in Barrhaven. Yet, our priority in these days following the tragic event should be to care for those affected and let them know that their neighbours are here to help in any way they can. We will find out what happened as the Transportation Safety Board and Ottawa police complete their respective investigations. We may never know exactly why events unfolded as they did, but we’ll have a general idea. In the meantime, we should all make an effort to avoid speculation. Guessing at the cause serves no purpose and can only be hurtful. There is also no good reason to point fingers at past decisions about the design of rail crossing on Woodroffe Avenue and the Transitway where the collision took place. That crossing met all the existing standards of the day and is no different than hundreds – or possibly thousands – of crossings across the country. If that crossing is inherently dangerous then there is much work to do across Canada, and the federal government will have to help other levels of

government pay to keep citizens of this country safe by separating train lines for roads in many places. The TSB has committed to sharing all its information when their work is done and has also promised to alert the public and authorities if they find a glaring safety issue during their work. We can ask nothing more and nothing less. But as for now, many residents across Ottawa are bound to know someone who was on the bus, on the train or sitting in their car on Woodroffe Avenue when the collision occurred. This was a traumatic event, and those who witnessed it deserve our support to cope with the emotional fallout. Some will also know the families of the six people – Michael Bleakney, Connor Boyd, Karen Krzyzewski, Kyle Nash, Rob More and Dave Woodard – who lost their lives. Those family members need all the help and support this city can afford them. But perhaps forgotten among those who might be shaken by this tragedy are the OC Transpo bus drivers. It’s never easy losing a colleague, and many drivers may recall the times they’ve driven past that site and think it could’ve been them and their passengers. So next time you’re getting off a bus, take a moment to thank your bus driver for getting you there safe and sound -- their job is far from easy.

Messy as it is, democracy in action is a wonderful thing

L

ast week was Democracy Week, which you probably didn’t notice either. There could have been something said about it in Parliament, but the House of Commons was prorogued. So most of us didn’t notice until it was too late. Except that it’s never too late to think about democracy. Why do so many of us, who live in one the most free countries of the world, decide not to vote when we get the chance on election day? Why do we, who are better educated than people in most countries of the world, know so little about public affairs? And why do we not care? People blame television for this. More recently, people blame the Internet. People blame the parents of Canada, who are too busy watching television to talk to their kids about democracy. People blame politicians for being such bozos. People blame the news media, who care more about sports and Miley Cyrus than about democracy. People blame our affluence and our freedom: We’re doing just fine so we don’t have to care about what our governments are doing. This is a big mistake, because government is with us every day -- sometimes less than we want, on issues such as homelessness, and sometimes more, on issues such as how

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town big a cross you can wear around your neck or whether you can put your inside furniture on your front porch. Most lovers of democracy are rightly steamed about Quebec’s charter of values, which stipulates what religious symbols government employees can’t wear. Less significant, but equally silly, are changes to Ottawa’s property maintenance bylaw, publicized recently, which would have required green bins to be stored in back yards. This has something to do with bureaucrats thinking green bins don’t look good on front porches. The same changes also contained a provision that indoor furniture shouldn’t be outdoors -- in other words, no chesterfield on the veranda. Nobody around city hall twigged that such

recommendations might cause inconvenience -- for example, to the many people in the city who don’t have back yards or garages or other places to keep their green bins out of sight; or people who can’t spend money on cool-looking outdoor furniture for their front porches. Away from city hall, people did notice, however. The proposed changes became subject to public debate and seem, like Quebec’s charter of values, on their way to being laughed out of existence. Mind you, the charter of values might take a little longer. In their rather different ways, both issues are examples of democracy being put to improper uses. We don’t elect a government to tell us what to wear on our heads or put on our front porches. In a democracy we can have whatever we want on our heads or our front porches, as long as we aren’t endangering anyone or interfering with anyone else’s rights. Putting the chesterfield on the front porch is fine as long as you’re not sitting on it playing the bagpipes at three in the morning, or vermin aren’t escaping from it (the chesterfield, not the bagpipes) into the neighbour’s yard. The chesterfield might not look so nice, but that’s a question of taste, and we don’t elect governments to rule on taste. If we did, politicians would dress a lot cooler than they do

and their office walls wouldn’t have so many plaques on them and pictures of the politicians shaking hands with celebrities. We are allowed to have our own tastes, especially if they are bad. Because who’s to say? Wide ties may come back. Obviously, the people sense this, hence the uproar, hence the retreat by city hall. This all happened during Democracy Week, by the way. Exercising the right to yell and protest and cause a public uproar is democracy in action. It’s messy sometimes, like the chesterfield on the front porch, but we’re comfortable with it.

Oh Quebec, I hardly knew ya!

I

t was just weeks ago I flooded these pages with prose about my love of all things Quebecois. Quebec Premier Pauline Marois and her gang have cut my love affair short. The proposed Quebec charter of values, which seeks to ban public servants from wearing religious attire, is an affront to our democracy, our freedoms and all things Canadian. The charter – in direct contradiction with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms -- would essentially forbid those working in public institutions from wearing religious dress. Excepted are small crosses and Star of David rings. Hijabs, oversized crucifixes and kippas are banned. The ban applies not only to desk-job civil servants, but also to childcare workers in provincially-run daycares and health care professionals working in public hospitals. There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the proposed legislation – designed to “protect the national identity” of the Quebecois from imaginary external threats -- is

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse nothing short of racist. Before I get to the racism part, however, let’s talk about the imaginary threats -- because, even if there was justification for the Parti Quebecois’ Marois and company to “protect Quebec’s national identity,” – which there isn’t – there is absolutely nothing threatening the white, Christian population of Quebec. According to statistics, more than 82 per cent of people living in Quebec identify as Christian; 12 per cent have no religious affiliation; three per cent are Muslim; one per cent are Jewish and less than half a per cent claim to be Hindu or Sikh. Where, exactly, is the threat? As La Presse journalist Patrick

Lagacé noted in his Sept. 11 column in the Globe and Mail, however, the point of this legislation is not to demonstrate racism, but the PQ is “part of a party that was scared to death in 2007 when it realised that identity politics in 21st-century Quebec have little to do with protecting French and everything to do with the public sphere of individual displays of religion – displays other than the ones Quebeckers were used to, at least, Muslim ones, mostly.” So yeah, racist politics. You know, for the sake of politics. In other words, the PQ looking to secure its popular voter base, which presides in the very white, very Catholic, very small town regions of

Quebec. (Support for the charter of values where Quebeckers actually live with visible minorities is very low). But look, there is an upside of putting these issues out front and centre – we get to see just how racist we all are. People in every province have weighed in on the Quebec charter debate and the results have been both horrifying and at the same time honest. In Quebec, support for the PQ’s secular charter of values is hovering just above 40 per cent. Online comments from Canadians in other parts of the country would suggest that those who support a secular society in the rest of Canada likely represent a similar number. Many scholars have pontificated on the subject of racism. While most of us believe that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms makes Canada some sort of holier-thanthou, politically correct society, it’s actually come out in some academic circles that Canadians may, in fact, be more racist than our American counterparts and that our political correctness stifles any meaningful discussion or development on subjects of accommodation. By masking, rather than facing our beliefs, we actually perpetuate subtle prejudice, rather than putting it out in the forefront.

So thanks, Marois. While you’ve definitely thrown a bucket of cold water on my love for Quebec nationalism – including the love of wine, food and, well, kissing , and all that has always seemed integral to your secular well-being – you’ve simultaneously forced all Canadians to grapple with our internal prejudice. And since your bill doesn’t have a chance on God’s green Earth of becoming law in Canada -- where the Charter of Rights and Freedoms resides supreme and religious freedom is considered one of our integral rights – I’ll consider taking a bottle of wine over to my secular Muslim friend’s place and hashing it all over. I just hope she isn’t wearing a scarf that day -- for fashion reasons or other -- or I’ll have to send her straight over to Quebec’s new squad policing the subject. But wait! As the Globe and Mail’s Jeffrey Simpson questioned, “Is the province now going to have a clothing-and-symbols police squad the way religious police in Iran check to see if any hair is showing beneath women’s head attire?” I think not. So, my Muslim pal and I, we’ll risk the wine and maybe, even, a Hermes scarf. You know, just for fun.

Hospices face critical conditions With hospital beds at a premium and the seniors’ population set to double, the city is in desperate need of more palliative care options METROLAND EAST SPECIAL REPORT

T

errence Quickfall knows he is going to die. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer seven years ago and the slow moving cancer continues to advance. “It’s very traumatic when you’ve been told you have cancer and you need to learn how to deal with that – the trauma, the big C. What the hell do you do, where do you go from here?” asks Quickfall. He received the traditional treatment – chemotherapy, radiation and hormone therapy – at a hospital but became depressed and withdrawn. “The trouble with a hospital is it’s very clinical,” he says. “There’s not enough personal attention, personal care. They’re always busy, busy, busy. “I’m stuck in these bloody four walls, I can’t get out. There’s no point in me hanging round, I’m not doing anything. And I’m taking up a lot of money that could be used on other people.” Sensing his distress, his social worker mentioned the option of hospice. Intrigued, Quickfall visited the Hospice at May Court, located in Old Ottawa South. The non-profit – a part of Hospice Care Ottawa, which includes Friends of Hospice Ottawa in Kanata – offers specialized support and a wide range of services to people and families experiencing a life-limiting illness, either in their homes or through residential programs at one of their two locations. After four months of attending day programs at May Court, the 73year-old has found a sense of community and belonging. On a regular visit, Quickfall can be found painting in the art room, talking to other patients, enjoying the garden views or playing cards with friends he’s made through the hospice. “We’re all in palliative care; palliative care is preparation for end of life,” he says. “We all know we’re going to die, but we’re here to have fun and that’s what we’re damn well going to do.” Quickfall plans on taking advantage of a residential bed at the hospice when his time comes. Aside from offering more personal attention, the cost to the health-care system is much lower. A residential

Terrence Quickfall became depressed when his cancer treatments kept him cooped up inside the house. But after joining the day hospice program at May Court, Quickfall says he is in much greater spirits. He visits twice a week to paint, play cards and chat with his friends.

DYING FOR DIGNITY A three-part series about hospice palliative care in Ottawa Part 1: A look at palliative care in the Ottawa area and the need for more resources as the population ages. hospice bed comes in at $400 a day, while a hospital bed is between $800 and $1,200. But hospice beds are in high demand and the supply isn’t where it should be. A report by Hospice Care Ottawa states 75 per cent of people with a terminal illness pass away in hospital and only 15 per cent of those patients receive quality end-of-life care. With a population close to one million people, Ottawa should have 70 hospice beds; that estimate allows for population growth and increasing mortality as the population ages. But the city only has 17. As baby boomers age, Ottawa’s seniors are expected to make up 20 per cent of the population by 2030. The number of deaths are expected to rise from 9,000 to 19,000 a year and 90 per cent of those people could benefit from hospice palliative care at the end of life, according to

Orléans News EMC - Thursday, September 26, 2013

the report. Currently, fewer than 300 people have access to hospice palliative care in the city each year. Although the idea of hospice palliative care isn’t new – home support programs have been available in Ottawa since 1987 and residential hospices since 1997 – the way society thinks about end-of-life-care needs to change. Instead of focusing on a person’s last days, palliative care needs to begin at the initial stage of diagnosis, says Dr. José Pereira, head of the division of palliative care at the University of Ottawa, and medical chief of the palliative care programs at Bruyère Continuing Care and the Ottawa Hospital. “We relegate it to the very end and we make the wrong decisions in the meantime. People suffer,” he explains. “As a society, we still think of pal-

liative as being only the last few days of life. The problem with that is we then miss the opportunity of preparing for the end of life. We miss the opportunity of improving quality of life, of improving symptoms, pain, shortness of breath, etcetera – of having these discussions much earlier,” says Pereira. “This is something that as a society we need to start rethinking.” In preparation, Ottawa must have resources in place to help people in every aspect of the palliative care continuum – something that is sorely lacking. “Fifty-two per cent of cancer patients are dying in hospitals,” says Pereira. The reasons? A lack of preparation and a lack of hospice beds, he says. Quickfall is one of the lucky ones – receiving the type of quality care that the report says is needed.

See video of Terrence Quickfall’s full story: ottawacommunitynews.com /ottawaregion-video/

“We desperately need more of these day programs, we need more hospice,” says Quickfall. “The baby boomers are coming to the front now, totally unprepared. We never seem to

think these people are going to get old one day. The days are gone when you retired at 65 and died at 66. Now, we retire at 55 and die at 95, and in that 40 years anything can happen.” CAN’T MEET NEEDS

Until recently, there were only nine beds available at May Court. Eight more beds were opened earlier this year at the Embassy West Senior Living centre on Carling Avenue. “We have them full pretty well all the time,” says Hospice Care Ottawa executive director Lisa Sullivan, adding the average length of stay is between 12 to 15 days. “There is definitely a need out there for hospice beds and when we opened more beds, within a couple days they were full again.” There will be two more beds by October and there are plans to build a 10-bed residential hospice in Kanata by 2016. But even then, that will only bring Ottawa to less than half of what’s recommended. Only a year ago, the city was operating two separate hospices: the Friends of Hospice Ottawa and the Hospice at May Court. The two organizations joined forces in an effort to integrate funding and services for the city. See page 11


Dying for dignity Continued from page 10

Currently undergoing rebranding, the organization is now called Hospice Care Ottawa and has been working hard not only to get funding for its $1.7 million operating costs, but also to fill the gaps with other fundraisers and donation opportunities. Government funding only covers 40 per cent of the hospice’s total costs. Local health integration networks, which are funded by the province, pay $90,000 per bed – the standard across Ontario. “When they say $90,000 per bed that just covers the (registered nurse), all those who serve the needs of the patient,” Sullivan says. That money doesn’t help hospices purchase equipment, run day programs, or offer grief and bereavement counselling. “We have some services but they really just scratch the surface in terms of meeting the needs of our clients,” says Sullivan. “We can’t meet the needs of everyone in Ottawa. That’s a real area of concern.”

2,565 The number of people admitted to residential hospices in Ontario between March 2012 and March 2013. Of those admitted, 94 per cent died in hospice.

$40,000 The cost of dying in a hospital ranges from $10,223 for a sudden death to $36,652 for terminal illnesses including cancer and $39,937 for organ failure. Up to 70 per cent of the costs for terminal illnesses are due to hospitalizations. It costs around $15,866 for cancer patients to die at home.

We can’t meet the needs of everyone in Ottawa. That’s a real area of concern. Lisa Sullivan executive director, Hospice Care Ottawa

The hospice, which includes home-based hospice services, relies on the community to raise the additional 60 per cent to remain open every year through events, monetary donations and grants to pad the funding, says Sullivan. “It’s a real challenge, but that is why we do things like Hike for the Hospice, Home for the Holidays and Girls Night Out,” says Sullivan about community-based fundraising. “Without fundraisers, we wouldn’t have the services that we do.” For the executive director, dying is an important part of living and she says people need options when it comes to end-of-life care. “If it’s at home, how can we as a community support them for being at home?” asks Sullivan. “The longer we can keep them at the home, connected to the right services, give them the support they need, the less likely they are to go through those emergency doors and end up in a hospital bed. “If it gets to be too much at home, if the caregivers are exhausted, then they should have the choice of having a hospice bed available to them,” says Sullivan. peaceful setting

But it became impossible after his chemotherapy was stopped. “It became a situation where, even though Lennox wanted to pass away at home, he just wasn’t able to because the cancer had spread through his whole body,” says Kathleen. “I felt fortunate that when the time did come, that May Court had a bed available for him,” she says. He passed away six days after being admitted to the May Court at the age of 51. “This was a devastating time in our lives, but to have our loved one cared for by the very special people at May Court in his final days gave us great comfort.

the hospice. “To have that bed available just took that stress away from myself and the kids. “It just allowed us to be able to spend those last six days with him in a more relaxed, calm, peaceful setting. The people that work at the May Court surround you with their compassion; they’re always there for you. That it just made that journey and those last six days of his life that much easier on us.” This type of care should be available to everyone who needs it, and that means more resources are needed. “Hospice care is an integral part of our health system,” says Sullivan. “We as a society recognize how important it is that dying is part of all our lives and that we create the kind of supports that people need during those last days of their life and make it available and accessible and as peaceful and as close to home as possible.” Special report by Michelle Nash, Jessica Cunha, Laura Mueller, Blair Edwards and Emma Jackson

The number of residential hospices in all of Ontario. Seventeen more are in planning. Almost all are located in urban settings. Rural communities are disproportionately underserved.

1,030 Ontario should have between 900 to 1,030 hospice beds with a population of 13.5 million. Currently there are 231 beds open, 10 in construction and 141 in planning.

$9M The amount of money that would be saved by shifting 10 per cent of patients at end of life from acute hospital care to hospice palliative care. It costs approximately $4,700 per client to provide palliative care in the home, or about one-quarter of the $19,000 cost for acute care.

Next week Part two looks at a new regional program in Ottawa, which aims to make the city a leader in hospice palliative care in the province.

Amy Paul, 27, found dead in Osgoode Sex trade worker frequented Vanier area Emma Jackson

emma.jackson@metroland.com

News - A body found in an Osgoode hay field has been identified as that of 27-year-old Amy Paul of Ottawa. A farmer discovered the body around 9:13 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17 off Cabin Road, just north of the village. Police are investigating the death as a homicide. Police spokesperson Const. Marc Soucy said Paul was a sex trade worker with no fixed address, who frequented the Vanier and Lowertown areas in downtown Ottawa. He said it is unclear if Paul has any connection to the Osgoode area. “We’re looking at why she was there and what she was doing there,” he said. A family member filed a missing persons report for Paul on Sept. 9 and Soucy said investigators were actively following her case. “They were working on it. They had leads and they were working on their leads,” he said. Paul’s missing persons report was not made public at the time. Soucy said the police receive thousands of missing persons reports each year, and only a handful are released to the media. He said criteria for releasing a report considers the person’s age, mental state, their risk level

or if there are no leads in the case. A post-mortem was conducted on Wednesday, Sept. 18 but Soucy said police are not releasing the results at this time. He said it is “too early to tell” if there are suspects in the case. “It’s still being actively investigated,” he said. In light of this incident, the police are asking women, particularly those involved in the sex trade, to be vigilant and exercise good safety practices. Sex trade workers are reminded to: • Be aware of surroundings and avoid isolated areas. • Trust your instincts when you don’t feel safe. • Let someone know if you must leave the area. • Take more time than usual before getting into a vehicle. • Try to work in teams so someone knows what vehicle you get in. • Keep a cell phone and make sure it’s charged and has minutes on it. • Have a personal safety plan prepared should a dangerous situation arise. • Report bad dates immediately to police, or to someone you trust. • Check in regularly with people you know, so they know you are okay. Anyone with information in this case is urged to call police at 613-236-1222 ext. 5493 or phone Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.

To the editor,

Reading your article entitled “Schools struggle to meet demand for dyslexia testing” sent shivers down my spine! It is a subject that is so close to my heart. As a mother of a 12-year old daughter who has severe dyslexia, dyscalculia and ADHD, I feel for all the parents and their children who have learning disabilities. It really is a shame that so many intelligent children have to struggle through school in

Some of you have asked about the intersection of Montreal and Shefford Roads and how it can be improved to alleviate traffic, especially getting up Shefford Road more quickly. This is something which has been an issue for over a decade and as such, I had requested that a traffic study and report be prepared. We will look at various options to maximize and continue the flow of vehicles, and I will share the results with you once we can work out the logistics.

This was the second time in two weeks span that thieves have been caught in Orléans because a citizen called police to report suspicious activity. Police remind the public to keep vehicle doors locked and ask them to continue to report suspicious activity in their neighbourhood.

learn what I could about dyslexia. I would like to share with you the name of an organization that has helped me enormously in my journey.  Although it is an organization for French-speaking families, I think it is worth sharing with your readers because many of us are fully bilingual and enjoy reading your publication. However, our children who attend French schools share similar hardships, as outlined in this article. L’AFPED (Association Francophone de parents d’Enfants

Dyslexiques ou ayant tout autre trouble d’apprentissage) is a non-profit organization which focuses on educating and supporting parents in their quest to find useful tools and strategies needed to help children with learning disabilities. They offer individual support, seminars, information, and group sessions. The people behind this organization are devoted, caring, and knowledgeable.  They have been pivotal in helping me find answers, resources and the courage to push through. L’AFPED can be reached at www.afped.ca or 613-761-8850. Let’s face it, not all teachers are created equal in their knowledge, interest or desire to accommodate children with learning disabilities.  As parents, we want the best for our children and we have to work together to make their school experiences as positive as possible in order to preserve their self-worth. Thank you for publishing such a wonderful article. Lynne Carter

In Ottawa, the project will work in partnership with La Cité Collegiale, the University of Ottawa, St. Paul University, Dominican University College and the Franco-Ontarian Cultural Union. “Projects like this are extremely important,” said Kellie Leitch, federal minister of labour and minister of status of women. “Encourage your colleagues to participate actively on campus and beyond that. Maybe some of you in the future will be running for office.” The projects are aiming to increase the percentage of women in leadership roles in

organizations, businesses and government, and take away some of the barriers women face. Orléans MP Royal Galipeau was at Place de la Francophonie on Sept. 16 alongside the minister for the announcement, as were representatives from the different Ottawa organizations and schools that will run activities created during the project. There has been $5.9 million in funding given out under the Status of Women Canada’s call for proposals for the promotion of leadership for girls and young women. “It sets the stage for a great leadership role,” Leitch said. “It will also help your local communities, the economy and the country.”

New Haven, P.E.I. raced to a gold medal in 39.14 seconds. “It felt like it did in London (2012 Olympics) where we went in with a lot of confidence,” said anchor runner Jared Connaughton in an Athletics Canada press release. “We just wanted to make sure we ran confidently. The best part was hearing the national anthem playing on our behalf.” “It’s one of those things that every athlete in the sport

dreams of hearing,” said Makinde, who ran the second leg of the relay. “I just hope I get to hear it a couple more times on bigger stages.” Makinde, a former University of Ottawa sprinter, had a second chance at gold the next day, racing in the 200-metre sprint. He represented Canada well, winning the individual race and bringing home a second gold.

Making friends with the vet: why checkups are important

Farm friends Allison Klus-Palermo and sons Myer and Xavier take in music and treats at the Friends of the Central Experimental Farm’s 25 years celebration, at the farm on Sept. 14. The day’s events included cake and raffle tickets to help raise money for the non-profit group.

News - Taking your pet to the vet can be a trying experience. Some pets will find it traumatic, but it’s critical to keeping your pet healthy and catching potential problems early on. Pets Plus Us, a pet owner community and insurance coverage provider, provides advice on finding the right vet and the importance of preventive care. “The best advice I can give is to get your dog or cat used to going to the vet when they are young,” says Randy Valpy, the top dog at Pets Plus Us. “Another great tip is to ask your friends and family for a referral.” When you take your pet to the vet, it’s a good idea to write down your questions ahead of time. If this is the annual visit, your vet will

examine their eyes, teeth, and ears; will check their coat and skin for bumps and sores; and will listen to the heart and weigh them. The vet will likely also perform

Valpy continued. “An annual trip to the vet is still the most effective way to keep your pet healthy and, in some cases, can help avoid emergency medical care.” When you are taking your dog or cat to the vet, it’s a good idea to bring some treats or toys for them, particularly if they are anxious, Valpy said. You’ll also want to have a leash handy to keep your pet close to you. If your dog barks or bites, you’ll want to have them in a muzzle. You’ll also want to bring your insurance card if you have pet insurance. More information is available online at www. petsplusus.com. News Canada

‘Scratch’ proves her worth

A

s far as Mother was concerned, there were no “ifs, ands, or buts� about it when it came to having pets in the house. They belonged in the barn, and that’s all there was to it. The barn cats had litters, it seemed to me back then, every time the weather changed and every time a new batch of kittens came on the scene, I begged Mother to let me keep at least one in the house for a pet. I promised I would look after it. It would never wander through the rooms and I would feed it myself, so there would be no spots on the kitchen floor, which Mother kept as clean as a whistle.

MARY COOK Memories “No cats in the house,� she would say each time I asked. So I would have to play with them in the barns, where they were allowed to wander freely, some in the cow byre, some in the stable and often one or two in where Father kept the sheep. I would make sure they all had fresh milk every day and, of course, I gave them all names. My brother Emerson said giving barn cats names was just about the craziest idea he ever heard of, especially R0012233909

������������

��������������������������

when there were so many. I paid him no heed. They came in all colours, but mostly they were grey or black with white spots. One batch produced one that was golden brown with white around its neck and a pure white tail. Emerson said it looked like its mother had been scared by a fox, whatever that meant. To me it was the most beautiful kitten I had ever seen. But it didn’t look like its mother had much love for it. To me it always seemed to be pushed aside, away from the other kittens. Neglected, it got thinner and thinner. Emerson said it wasn’t long for this world and the best thing that could happen to it was to put it in a grain sack and take to the Bonnechere River. Needless to say that sent me into fits of crying and I begged Mother to let me keep

it in the house until it had grown a bit. I even promised to knit an extra dishcloth without being asked, a task I likened to cleaning the outhouse. Finally, Mother relented. It would have to be kept in a box at night. I would have to take it outside to “do its business� and it would only be in the house until it was able to fend for itself out in the barn. I was so happy and that night I printed in my diary that for the first time ever, I was allowed to have a baby kitten in the house. I called it Scratch because it loved to scratch on the side of the cardboard box which was its home through the night. It grew and flourished and every day Mother would warn me that soon it would have to join the other cats in the barn. The litter was born early in the fall and as the nights got colder I was eternally grateful that Scratch was in a warm spot to sleep. Just before I went to bed every night I took

Scratch outside and then put her into the cardboard box. She was growing so fast with my tender love and care that soon she would outgrow her night bed. Then one morning, even before I was out of bed, I heard Mother let a scream out of her that I was sure could be heard across the Twenty Acre Field. I tore downstairs, not knowing what to expect and there was Scratch sound asleep outside the box and beside her, half mutilated, were two very dead mice. Now, if there was anything Mother hated more than the common house fly or pet animals in the house, it was a mouse! She was sure they carried germs. It wasn’t so much that she was afraid of them, it was just that she thought they were the dirtiest critters on earth. There was little hope of keeping them out of the house, in spite of the countless traps spaced around the floor.

Well, it was obvious how the mice had come to meet their maker. Scratch had done them in -- that was obvious. That’s what changed Mother’s mind about having a pet in the house. Scratch, as long as she was “earning her keep,� was allowed to spend the nights in the cardboard box in the kitchen. She spent most of the winter there that year, but the day came when Scratch herself wanted to be out in the barns. She had grown full size and remained the only cat with the odd colouring. She sneaked around unheard and ignored the other cats completely. When I saw that she much preferred the hen house over the cow byre, I wondered if there was more truth than poetry to what Emerson claimed -- maybe there was a bit of fox-blood running through her veins.

But if it’s not a match, they may be able to take part in a cross-matching program – where her mother could donate a kidney to another patient with a willing donor, and that donor would donate to Stephen.

It’s gone off two or three times, but none of them worked out. “It sucks because you get really excited - your heart stops,” she said. “But if it didn’t help me, it’s going to help someone else, so it’s ok.” LOOKING UP

Right now, Stephen holds onto the hope that her mother will be able to donate a kidney.

She was previously a match, but didn’t meet the weight criteria to be a donor. Her mom has been working to lose weight, and recently had gastric bypass surgery to help her along. She has already lost 80 pounds. Within the next year, Stephen expects the process to be able to start to try and get a donor kidney from her mother. If she is cleared to be a kidney donor, the first step will be to make sure she’s still a match. Because Stephen had a kidney

Stephen is this year’s Kidney Walk ambassador for the Kidney Foundation of Canada and is speaking about her story ahead of the event to raise awareness. She’ll have her own delegation too, with a large crew of her family and mom’s co-workers attending the Sept. 29 Ottawa event. They participated in the walk last year, and she plans to work on some of her own fundraisers for the Kidney Foundation in the future. The 2013 Kidney Walk will take place on Sept. 29 at the Old City Hall on 111 Sussex Dr. Registration starts at 10 a.m. and the walk will start at 11 a.m.

News - Kassie Stephen just wants what most 19-year-olds want: to go to college, be able to go out with her friends, maybe join a soccer team. But Stephen’s life is far from normal. Because she lives with kidney failure, she takes a handful of pills four times a day, carefully measuring so she doesn’t go over the one litre of fluids she can consume every 24 hours. And she knows the bus route back and forth from the hospital with her eyes closed, as she goes three times a week for several hours of dialysis. “Being a teenager, it sucks because all my friends go out,” she said. “I kind of had to grow up fast. I can’t have much of a social life.” The bubbly Orléans teenager recently graduated from Cairine Wilson Secondary School – it took an extra year on account of all the time she missed while having dialysis. She has high hopes for the future. She’s proud of being accepted to all three of the colleges she applied to last year, deferring her acceptance in the hopes she’ll get a kidney. Stephen wants the full college experience and is willing to wait until her Friday nights aren’t spent hooked up to the dialysis machines. She also worried she would pay expensive post-secondary tuition, only to have to leave mid-semester if a donor kidney comes available. And she gets excited when she talks about playing soccer again, and maybe learning to play hockey too. Kidney disease has been part of Stephen’s life as long as she can remember. She was diagnosed with kidney disease when she was young. “They told my parents they didn’t think I’d live to be 10 years old,” she said. She began home dialysis as a youth, working her way up from eight hours a day to being on the machines 16 hours a day. It left her time only to go to school, and nothing else. “I got told dialysis isn’t working - you need a transplant soon,” Stephen said. “Within a month I got a call (that there was a match).” The then 14-year-old had a kidney transplant, and was able to go back to living a normal life. On a family trip to P.E.I nine months later, she fell ill. It was her body rejecting the transplant kidney. She started in-hospital dialysis three times a week at CHEO until she turned 18, when she transferred to the Riverside Hospital.

Freshen up with foul fat Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland

News - David Fairbanks, a culinary professor at Algonquin College, said students have found a new way to use the byproducts from their cooking. “A lot of attention is paid to the type of farming, whether it’s free-range or sustainable and the transportation to your table,” Fairbanks said. “Not a lot of people talk about what to do with it after people have been served.” Every time a beef or chicken stock is made, there’s a layer of fat on the top, before a quick Google search, students just threw it in the garbage. “We thought about composting,” Fairbanks said. “But we wanted to see if there was someway to reuse it.” Fairbanks said it was about respecting the animal and not having any waste. Aside from uses for fat during an Internet search, students found instructions on making soap in an old reference book at the college’s learning centre. “It was really great. It was

about farming in the 1800s,” Fairbanks said. “We could learn a lot from them.” By retaining the animal fat, students have been able to make bars of soap, which they sell as a natural cleaning product. Their flagship soap, Dirty Duck, is made with duck fat, water and sodium hydroxide. The other selections – Filthy Beast, Raging Bull and Foul Fowl – are all made with different animal fats and the students’ special brand of spices. “It affects the smell,” Fairbanks said, adding the Filthy Beast soap has a hint of rosemary. Not only do the students collect their own fat, but they have begun crowd sourcing for waste from other restaurants. Fat comes from Double Happiness and Thyme and Again on Somerset Street, the Red Apron on Gladstone Avenue and The SmoQue Shack on York Street. After it’s collected, they boil it down to remove seasoning and then transport it to Purple Urchin,

a natural soap retailer, where it’s made. “It takes 30 days for the soap to dry off and be ready for sale,” Fairbanks said, adding the soap is available for purchase at the college’s Fitness Zone, Savoir Faire and www.dirtyducksoap.ca. Students helping students

Fairbanks said the proceeds from the sale of the soap go into an emergency slush fund designed to help students in need. “If students need help purchasing safety shoes, other equipment, or even just paying their rent one month, that’s what it’s there for,” Fairbanks said. While health and safety regulations prohibit students from making the soap – sodium hydroxide is caustic – Fairbanks said he would like to see culinary students handle the collection and marketing of the products. “It’s all about experience and hands-on learning,” he said.

tives, attended the meeting to discuss the property. As the meeting went on, however, the concerns quickly became more about the issues happening on the streets outside the property than on the site itself – something OCH cannot control, representatives said. Some residents, like Levesque, email OCH after an event has occurred. She has even gone as far as attending tribunal hearings, stating this work could become her other full time job. “I’m glad you send us emails, we need to track events to be able to evict,” Poirier said. “We can’t have our tenants disturbing our neighbours.” Police Insp. Chris Rheaume encouraged people in the audience to be active in reporting crime by calling 2361222 any time they see suspicious activity. “For people to take back their streets, its one at a time.

Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury discusses concerns about drug trafficking and prostitution on south Vanier streets at the St. Laurent Complex on Sept. 18.

Michelle Nash/Metroland

SP

News - Residents who live around the corner of Richelieu and Lafontaine streets in Vanier met with police along with staff from the city and community housing to say enough is enough when it comes to prostitution. Although the number of “john sweeps” in the area has increased recently, with three occurring in the past two months, residents voiced concerns about street prostitution at a councillor-led meeting on Sept. 18. “Hookers line up along the wall like pigeons,” said resident Suzan Proulx, who described an area close to her home. “No one will want to buy homes here, even though it’s the most affordable option in the city.” Proulx was not the only one concerned about property values, safety and the constant “strange” cars seen at around the same time every day. Louise Levesque, who has been a Vanier resident for more than 60 years, said she has had enough and wants Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury and police to help make a difference in her neighbourhood. The meeting stemmed from concerns raised around an Ottawa Community Housingowned property, Richelieu Court, where residents say they hear screaming and loud noises at all hours and witness drug trafficking and prostitution on a regular basis. “There are good residents who live in that building, who don’t deserve to live with some of the other individuals,” Levesque said. To help field some of the questions and concerns, community housing executive director Joanne Poirier, as well as the district director for the east end, the head of security, and other OCH representa-

were based on complaints. It makes a difference,” he said. One resident, for example, witnessed 165 prostitution incidents during a 30-period and reported them all to police in one go. Rheaume said that work resulted in an immediate john sweep. Proulx asked what the community could do as a whole to help make a difference. “I want this place to be beautiful,” she said. “How are we going to move beyond this? Is it manageable? How is it going to get better?” Fleury said part of making the community better is working together, reporting crime and keeping all partners informed. “There is not one key that can make it work. If there was, we would put the key in the lock and it would work. It’s a combination of things that we need to do,” Fleury said. Crime Prevention Ottawa executive director Nancy Worsfold told resident they too can do their part. “When it comes to the johns, embarrass them. Send their plates to the police,” she said. Part of an ongoing program the police run, Worsfold said, is that police will send out a letter to whomever the vehicle is registered, stating the car was located in an area with a high volume of sex trade workers. Rheaume said he personally signs the letters and in some case, it’s just the right amount of embarrassment to keep that particular john from coming back. Levesque said there has been some incredible support from OCH staff and police and she simply asked for a stronger presence in the future. “We are the victims -- we need it to stop,” Levesque said.

CHEO launches Dream Home lottery on Sept. 16 ficult to wake up. As a nurse, Ryan recognized the symptoms as hypoglycaemia, and called the ambulance. Ava was recently diagnosed with ketotic hypoglycemia, a rare but serious form of low blood sugar. “She’s taken a few ambulance rides to CHEO as a result of that,” Ryan said. The Ryans are this year’s CHEO ambassadors, and the family of four – Ava has a sixmonth-old sister – recounted their story at the launch. Ava is now a “happy, healthy three-year-old,” Ryan said, and indeed the little girl looked excited for the attention as she showed her CHEO teddy bear to photographers and CHEO staff. Ryan appealed to the crowd to buy their tickets and support the facility. “Please help CHEO so they can continue to change lives as they did ours,” she said.

News – The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario was hoping to make one lucky winner’s dreams come true even as burglars were making off with some of the dream home’s backyard goodies. CHEO staff launched this year’s Dream of a Lifetime lottery on Monday, Sept. 16, a day after two people broke into the Manotick mansion’s backyard and stole a patio set and a barbecue in broad daylight. Sandy Burke, design consultant for Minto’s Mahogany development where the dream home is located, said the thieves were literally stealing from children. “I don’t know if anyone thought of that, but there’s a big sign out front (labelling it the CHEO dream home),” he said. “Today’s the launch, and there are pieces missing. It’s a special day.” Police are investigating and Burke said one of the thieves looked right into the security camera, something which hopefully will aid investiga-

tors. “We’ll get that taken care of,” he said. The 5568-square-foot dream home is located off Manotick Main Street in a new development by Minto. It is built in the French provincial style, Burke said, and includes four bedrooms upstairs – two of which are master bedrooms. A fifth bedroom on the main floor was set up as a games room during the launch. The home also features five bathrooms, several sitting rooms and a large kitchen which boasts an eight-person dining room table and several large stainless steel appliances. The finished basement feels more like a classy lounge; small pods of seating areas are spread out among the entertainment systems, with a mini kitchen along the wall. Even the kids’ recreation room has its own TV, one of many throughout the house. A personal exercise room completes the picture. CHEO chief executive Alex Munter joked that he almost missed the launch because he was lost upstairs; and with all the joining rooms, walkin closets and roomy bath-

Trina and Sean Ryan, with their three-year-old daughter Ava, recounted their experienc- online at dreamofalifetime. ca, by phone at 613-722-5437 es at CHEO on Sept. 16 as part of the launch of this year’s Dream of a Lifetime lottery. rooms, it’s not an unthinkable possibility. Munter thanked Minto, trade partners and ticket holders for supporting the hospital, which he said is considered in the top six per cent of research hospitals globally in terms of its impact. “None of that would be possible if not for the donors,” he said. “Kids deserve to be happy, we all feel that.” Minto communications director Gwen Cox said this is the 13th home the developer has built for CHEO, and “this is probably the most dazzling we’ve ever done.” “In a perfect world no kids would have to see the walls inside CHEO,” Cox said,

but since that’s not the case, “we’re very grateful that we’re able to help out in this way.” HOME AWAY FROM HOME Trina Ryan and her family know all too well how quickly CHEO can become a second home. Ryan, a Kemptville resident, spent many hours in the hospital as a child while her younger sister struggled with congenital heart disease – an experience that inspired her to become a nurse and work at CHEO herself for a short time. But Ryan’s experience with CHEO was just beginning. “Little did I know my husband and I would return

to CHEO” as their daughter Ava failed to thrive. At three months of age, Ava suffered extreme discomfort after feeding, and was prone to projectile vomiting. At three months old, Ava was admitted to CHEO and diagnosed with failure to thrive, severe acid reflux and several food allergies. She stayed at CHEO for five weeks before she was able to come home, although she continued to be closely monitored as an outpatient. Ava got better, but around her second birthday her parents started to notice different symptoms. One morning, she was sweating, trembling and dif-

Green living on display this weekend Emma Jackson

News – What does a condo in the Glebe have in common with a 160-year-old farmhouse in Chesterville? More than you might think: first and foremost, they’re both at the forefront of green living in Ottawa - and this weekend their owners and those of eight other homes across the region will welcome visitors to explore their green initiatives first-hand. The second-annual Green Homes Showcase hosted by the EnviroCentre, a non-profit group committed to reducing carbon emissions in Ottawa, has been greatly expanded for this year’s event on Saturday, Sept. 28. Organizer Rabita Sharfuddin said this year’s event has 10 homes – more than double last year’s four – and they are spread across the region from Kemptville to Orléans. It’s also a self-guided tour this year, which means people can come and go as they please instead of committing to several hours with a guide. “By having 10 homes in 10

different neighbourhoods it makes it easier to attend,” Sharfuddin said. “And visitors can pick and choose what’s relevant to them.” She said the 10 homes are all very different from each other, and feature a wide variety of green initiatives. That will make it easier for homeowners to pinpoint the stops they are most interested in. “Homeowners can find one that’s similar to their home, visit the home and talk to contractors,” she said. The tour runs from noon to 4 p.m. It includes two rural homes – the farmhouse in Chesterville and a solar and geothermalpowered home in Kemptville – and eight urban and suburban locations. These range from a multi-residential co-operative home in Bells Corners to a single family home in Orléans to an infill development in Hintonburg. Visitors will be guided through the green renovations in each home and will be able to speak directly to homeowners, energy advisors, building professionals and contractors on site. See GREEN, page 27

This home on Firwood Crescent in the Bayshore area features solar tube lighting in the basement, radiant heat flooring and a hybrid water pump heater. This house also features an eco-friendly deck made entirely out of recycled plastic. It will be on display as part of the EnviroCentre’s Green Homes Showcase on Sept. 28.

The goal, Sharfuddin said, is to encourage residents to make similar green changes in their own homes. “We’re trying to promote green energy and green living,� she said, noting that such retrofits can benefit not only the environment but also the value of the home. The 10 homes open for visits are: *Westboro: single family

home at 296 Royal Ave using passive solar design and radiant floor heating; *Hintonburg: 1920’s retrofitted home at 69 Fairmont Ave and an infill project under construction on 15 Garland St.; • Old Ottawa East: solar powered Terra Firma Cohousing Community on 172 Drummond St.; • OrlÊans: carbon neutral home with solar panels and passive heating and cooling on 854 Lawnsberry Dr.;

The plans, revealed at an open house at the museum on Sept. 16, showed a MICHELLE NASH/METROLAND reduction of the footprint for parking, Area residents speak with representatives from the Canadian Museum of Nature and the engineering firm allowing 96 spots on the west-side working on a west-side parking lot. The new plans, presented on Sept. 16 showed a landscaped area, and a of the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property making it possible to maximize the landscaped reduced footprint of parking spaces on the property. space, maintain current paths and outdoor features. The remaining outdoor space will be landscaped and will eventually include a large sculpture. Neighbouring residents attended the open house to view the plans, speak with museum and engineering ďŹ rm representatives and offer comments. J.P. Caron lives across the street and uses the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor green space almost daily. He referred to the R0012323630_0926 space as a neighbourhood park, and R0012323627_0919 many area residents use the space for their children to play, enjoy a leisurely walk or a quiet place to read. For him, keeping the green space as large as possible was an acceptable compromise for both the parking and public needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel the initiative is well thought out and looks promising to the com-

munity,â&#x20AC;? Caron said. Another area resident, Mick Pates, who has been active in a community group active in looking out for the green space and neighbours best interests, said he too saw an improvement to the plans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The important thing is they have reduced the footprint and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big thing to me,â&#x20AC;? he said. Pates added the property and museum have a lot of history that needs to be preserved. Museum president Meg Beckel said comments such as those made by Pates and other residents have been considered as much as possible throughout the process and she was pleased to ďŹ nally be able to show off the plans to the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In January 2012, we just had a blocking diagram of where parking and landscaping could go, with just ideas of what could be in the green space,â&#x20AC;? Beckel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we are presenting those ideas.â&#x20AC;? The museum announced its plans to make a permanent parking area on the west side of the building at the beginning of 2012. The plans arose from the signiďŹ cant renovations the museum underwent starting in 2004, which saw the usable space in the building expanded. See PARKING, page 41

Players provide sneak peek into 17th century England Jennifer McIntosh

jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

Arts - Gord Carruth, a local playwright, has stepped out of retirement to deliver a naughty musical about 17th-century England. And So To Bed, a musical Carruth penned earlier in his career, takes viewers into the pages of Samuel Pepys’ diary. Pepys was a naval administrator and a member of Britain’s Parliament. The play, which celebrates the return of King Charles – known colloquially as good time Charlie – tells the story of a young man trying to get ahead who falls victim to his own ambition. The play covers six years from 1660 to 1666, starting when Pepys was 27 years old. “I wrote it because I became really interested in the time period,” Carruth said. “King Charles was returning from exile in the French court and he brought back plays and music with him. It ended a kind of puritanical era.” Carruth added it was a time of great conflict with the London fire, the plague and the

loss of two Dutch wars. There is also conflict between the two main characters. Carruth said the relationship between Pepys and his wife was mercurial. The pair was married when Pepys was 27 and she was just 15. The story is compelling and the cast of 21 may be the best he has ever put together, Carruth said. The piece is being put together in partnership with the Restoration Players and Suzart, but GOYA actors Lesley Osborn (Menopositive) and Andrew Galligan (Gabriel). Aside from the experienced cast, Carruth said the music is some of the best work he’s done. “It’s bawdy,” he said. The story introduces viewers to King Charles’ court, along with scandalous poet John Wilmot and the kings mistress and actress Nell Gwynne. The play hits the stage at the Centrepointe Studio Theatre from Oct. 9 to 12. Tickets are $25 and are available at www.centrepointetheatre.com.

Notice of Completion of Environmental Project Reportt Cumberland Transitway Extension Trim Road to Frank Kenny Road The Project The City of Ottawa has completed an Environmental Project Report (EPR) in accordance with Ontario Regulation 231/08 for the extension of the Cumberland Transitway which will include a segregated busway between Trim Road and Frank Kenny Road. The project will serve to improve transit service in the OrlĂŠans area. Study information, including pre-planning efforts, is available at ottawa.ca. The Process The environmental impact of this transit project was assessed and an EPR was prepared according to the Transit Project Assessment Process as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects and Greater Toronto Transportation Authority Undertakings.

STUDY AREA

The EPR is available for a 30-day review period beginning September 26, 2013 at the following locations: Ministry of the Environment s %NVIRONMENTAL!PPROVALS"RANCH 2 St. Clair Avenue West, Floor 12A, Toronto, ON, M4V 1L5

That renovation did, however, significantly affect the parkland to the west side of the building. At first the space was used as a construction staging site. Now that the renovations have been completed, the space serves as an overflow parking area. At the time of the 2012 meeting, residents had hoped the space would be returned to its previous state as green space, but Beckel said demand for parking is far too great and parking on the west side of the building would be made permanent. According to the museum, it is the second most attended museum in the capital region next to the Canadian Museum of Civilization, but has less parking than all the other museums, with the exception of the Canada Agricultural Museum. Currently the museum has 192 spots: 96 on the east side and 96 temporary gravel spots on the west side. According to Beckel, optimizing the parking but maximizing the green space has been the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal and she felt this plan is proof that has

been accomplished. Some residents who attended questioned the need to accommodate the growing number people who drive to the museum. Beckel said the museum does encourage people using other modes of transportation, such as riding a bicycle, but with no designated transit stop and fewer private parking lots in Centretown, to meet the growing needs of museum people arriving by automobile need to be accommodated. The museum is aiming to have a permanent Arctic gallery in place by 2017 and Beckel said the sculpture would be an added the outdoor feature. The preliminary plans to build such a sculpture, she added, would cost around $1 million and fundraising efforts would be needed to make this a reality, but this would all be considered after the museum jumps its first hurdle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; getting approval from the land owners, the National Capital Commission, in November. If the museum receives approval from the NCC, construction could begin as early as spring 2014, with visitors being able to use the parking space by end of June.

Association votes to support church`s heritage designation Michelle Nash

michelle.nash@metroland.com

News - The Vanier Community Association has voted to support a heritage designation for the St. Charles Church. Area resident Mike Steinhauer submitted a heritage designation application to the city for the church, located on St. Charles Street, earlier this summer. He said he did this, for one among many reasons, because no one ever had. “I always thought it had heritage designation and I was surprised to see it doesn’t,” Steinhauer said. “This is a landmark and community gathering place for 100 years in this community.” With the application in the city’s hands, Steinhauer attended the association’s first board meeting of the 2013-14 year on Sept. 10 to seek the group’s support. Before voting, the association members were given a brief rundown of Steinhauer’s application, which included why sought the designation in the first place. “This church brings together both sides of Beechwood

File

St. Charles Church has existed in the Vanier community for 100 years and residents in the area feel strongly the church needs to have heritage designation. -- losing it would be quite significant,” Steinhauer said. The church has been closed for the past three years and some in the community have speculated it is being shopped around for sale by owners, the Catholic archdiocese of Ottawa. According to Steinhauer, this application has halted any potential sale for the time being, and could have possibly

changed to value of the site. But he explained his intention has never been to designated the property and watch it remain empty and rot. “The community built this church over the past 100 years, I think it owns the right to help decide its future,” he said. Steinhauer said his ambition is for it to become what it once was – a hub for the community – on both sides of

Beechwood. And although the church is referred to in the Beechwood Community Design Plan as a “significant site” and ‘”the most important landmark building along Beechwood Avenue,” no one had ever sought a heritage designation. With no designation, the property can not be saved from a developer from tearing it down, if they chose to do so.

The association’s board of directors asked a number of questions, but a majority was in favour of working to save the property and voted to write to city staff indicating support for the designation. The designation process requires the subject property to pass one of three criteria values, which according to Steinhauer, the church does. “It’s not unique, there are many churches like this, but most are rural churches, which this was, on the outside of the city before Vanier became a part of the city. Now it is engulfed in a city -- a rare find today,” Steinhauer said. Francophone community members have been very vocal that the parish is also a significant institution to them and attended a community-led design workshop in June to speak about the church, design, use and building potential. The Archdiocese did not attend those meetings. Representatives from the archdiocese were also not available to comment on the designation application by this paper’s print deadline. After receiving support

from the board for the church, Steinhauer pointed out the association should look into creating a heritage committee. “There are a lot of old buildings here -- we need to look at which ones we want to save, which ones have value,” he said. The board agreed, but felt it was a significant issue and decided to speak with members to gather input. The board deferred Steinhauer’s request about the heritage committee to another meeting, adding if the Vanier community has the desire to start up a heritage committee, the board would support it. “Let’s let people know we are supporting this and that it has been a recommendation,” said association president Mike Bulthuis. The Vanier Community Association will hold its next meeting on Oct. 8. A report on the proposed designation is expected to be considered by the city’s built heritage subcommittee on Oct. 10. Approvals from both the planning committee and city council would also be required.

With deepest Sympathy All the staff at the Nepean-Barrhaven News and all the Metroland East newspapers in the Ottawa area offer our condolences to those who have lost a loved one or suffered injuries in the Sept. 18 collision on the Transitway in Barrhaven. We also extend our appreciation to all emergency personnel who were on the scene that day and at local hospitals. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your families.

Aries, someone whose opinion matters to you may disagree with you on an important point. Use your powers of persuasion, and both of you will be better for it. Take your upbeat attitude to new heights this week, Taurus. New challenges will emerge in the coming weeks, so find new inspiration and things will go smoothly. Gemini, keep your head on straight over the next week, which figures to be hectic. Cool heads always prevail, and your calm approach will be noticed by others. Cancer, your ingenuity is treasured among the people closest to you, but those who do not know you may be unfamiliar with the tricks you have up your sleeve. Take time to show them. Leo, someone wants to take your relationship to another level, so let this person know you are on the same page. Otherwise, you both may be floundering around for some time. Virgo, good news awaits on the job this week, even if it is totally unexpected. Nonetheless, it can be exciting to know that someone is watching out for you.

Libra, you may be excited about an upcoming event or getaway, but don’t let your anticipation get the best of you. Remember, you do need to plan and pack. Scorpio, embrace a challenge that presents itself this week. No matter the scale of the challenge, you will soon find you’re up to it, and so will those around you. Sagittarius, be open to new experiences, as you do not know when surprises are going to come around the bend. This week may prove to be a real eye-opener. It’s time to ditch any bad habits that have been holding you back, Capricorn. Set a new course, with new goals, and those old habits will soon be an afterthought. A heightened sense of urgency may have you jumping into a situation, Aquarius. But give this situation the careful consideration it deserves. Keep your eyes on the future. Pisces, now is the time to redirect some of your professional ambitions to your personal life. It’s an effort worth making.
