News - As trick-or-treaters trickle into Orléans yards on Oct. 31, one home will have a few more trick-or-treaters. “(We get) 500 to 600, without the parents counted,” said Jean-Marc Guertin, who decorates his home at 416 Mockingbird Dr. with his wife every year for Halloween. They’ve been setting up their spooky yard ever since they moved to Orléans, and have been growing their decoration collection ever since. Now in their seventh year, he likes to add new features or themed scenes every Halloween, to keep things different for the kids who come by and visit. “The first year here, we started decorating a few things and we got more than 500 kids,” he said. “We put it more on the scary side, instead of cute, and the kids and teenagers loved it.” See SPIDER, page 2

News - A last-minute amendment to the public school board’s capital priorities list on Oct. 22 moved a new elementary school in the Barrhaven suburb of Half Moon Bay to the top spot. Ryan Knuth, director of public relations for the Half Moon Bay Community Association said residents are thrilled and surprised by the vote.

Distinctive Bathrooms & Kitchens

“I spoke with trustee Donna Blackburn before the meeting and we were hoping that was going to be the outcome,” he said. “But I had made cases in front of the board before, so I knew it could go either way.” Knuth said the suburb currently has more than 3,000 homes, and based on approved developments it will have almost double that by 2016. Knuth said students are currently attending Barrhaven Public School,

Jockvale Elementary and Cedarview Middle School. “I would say students are being transported six to eight kilometres each way for school,” Knuth said. Blackburn’s amendment asked the board to move those schools that haven’t had board approved accommodation reviews further down the wish list. The 11th-hour change moved a new school for Avalon, a suburb in Orléans, from the top spot to number seven. It also bumps a new school for Findlay Creek from fifth to eighth. Blackburn said without a board-approved study of adjacent school space it wasn’t responsible to put the east-

end school ahead of other projects. “There are 100 spots at Henry Larsen (Public School) that could accommodate some of the overflow,” she said, adding all parts of the city should be studied before priorities are set. Chapman Mills Public School was opened in September to handle excess students from Farley Mowat and Barrhaven public schools. The board did an accommodation review in 2011 and redistributed students to ease crowding. At the time Farley Mowat and Barrhaven public had 17 and 19 portables respectively. See AVALON, page 3

The Guertin family’s yard takes on a macabre look for the Halloween season.

Spider maze part of this year’s decorations Continued from page 1

He realized that their house was out of the ordinary after winning a local television station’s contest a few years ago, with $1,000 to spend at a Halloween store. “We have one of the biggest collections (of decorations) you’ll ever see,” Guertin said.

As they set up in the weeks leading up to Halloween, cars will go out of their way to come past the house on Mockingbird. This year, they’ll have a giant spider tunnel, a maze in the backyard and a scene from the scary movie Silent Hill set up. Neighbours help out, playing characters in the different scenes.

neighbourhood children enjoy their Halloween’s stopping by the house. “We just love it and the kids adore it,” he said. “They love it so much, they always say we have the coolest house. And the teenagers love it too… We’re not typical Halloween haunters.” Halloween decorations are expensive, but Guertin’s found ways to use pieces from the dollar store or thrift shop, and has made best friends with a glue gun to keep the project affordable. But the one place he doesn’t scrimp is on candy, usually hitting the triple digits for his sugary bill. “We get the chocolate and the good stuff,” he said.


If you’d like to turn your yard into a Halloween scarefest, here are some tips from Jean-Marc Guertin on how to make spooky decorations on a budget: • Buy Halloween items after Halloween to save for the next year. He estimates 99 per cent of his Halloween garb was purchased in November sales for up to 75 per cent off. • Weed mats make great black walls or costume material. He can get 15 metres for about $10. • Styrofoam can often be found for free – perfect for making mock tombstones. • Leftover chicken wire and tomatoe cages can be useful to make fake bodies, and foam heads can be nought for under $5 at Value Village. • Invest in lots of hot glue – making decorations yourself at home can save big bucks.

Future Avalon school has been on board’s list since 2006 Continued from page 1

It was Blackburn’s second kick at the can. She proposed a similar motion at the Oct. 1 committee of the whole meeting that put forward a list of schools that had accommodation reviews or “similar studies” completed. It was defeated. “I think the spirit of the motion got lost in that discussion,” she said, adding she simply wanted to ensure the board followed a process when choosing priorities for the wish list set to go to the Ministry of Education on Oct. 31. Orléans and Cumberland trustee John Shea said the amendment left him speechless. “I thought we had closed this issue at committee of the whole,” he said, calling the last-minute move unfair. “It’s not transparent,” he said. “We had a list that we had developed with the criteria staff had chosen. Then we completely changed

that with no notice to the public. No one from Orléans or Findlay Creek was present.” Shea scoffed at the suggestion that Orléans students could be moved around to accommodate the overflow at Avalon Public School. “There has been some decline in enrolment in other parts of Orléans, but people forget it’s quite large – 110,000 people – bigger than Barrhaven or Kanata,” he said. “I can get to Embrun during the rush hour in the morning faster than I can get to parts of Orléans that are north of the (highway) 174.” Six trustees voted in favour of the amendment, five opposed and one abstained, Shea said. “It was the thinnest of margins possible,” he said, adding he hopes the ministry takes the business case for a new Avalon school into consideration. “Hopefully they’ll see it is the board’s first capital priority despite what happened last night,” he said.

Mark Fisher, trustee for much of south Ottawa, said only looking at accommodation reviews to compile the list doesn’t take into account other factors that can make projects a priority. ‘a narrow view’

“Staff have dozens of criteria they look at,” he said. “Pressures of full day kindergarten, class sizes and location are just a few. By limiting the list to accommodation reviews, we only have a very narrow view.” While Fisher said he supports a new school in Half Moon Bay, he said he didn’t like politicking to get it farther up the list. “As far as I am concerned all the projects are number one and they all have strong business cases,” he said. “But it’s hard for me to tell residents to trust in the process when things like this happen.” A new school in Findlay Creek is sorely needed, he said, adding the

Department of National will not renew the lease beyond 2017. While the new list allows for staff to draft a special letter in support of a Findlay Creek that will be circulated to Ottawa area MPPs, Fisher said it’s tough to explain to his constituents why the project dropped three spots on the list for no apparent reason. “A new school for Avalon and Findlay Creek have been on the list since 2006,” he said. “It’s unfortunate this process pits one community against another, which is why I supported simply moving the projects that hadn’t received money from the last round of funding to a new list.” Fisher added the site for a new school in Findlay Creek has already paid for and has servicing. The board voted in favour of purchasing land in Half Moon Bay the same night it was put to the top of the list. But Blackburn said she remembered calls for following the accommodation review process when the

board was faced with the decision to either renovate or rebuild Broadview Public School. “Barrhaven has done its fair share in terms of accommodating growth pressures,” she said. The amended list of priorities will be presented to the Ministry of the Education at the end of the month for funding. The new list in order of priority: • New school for Half Moon Bay 13.65 million • Broadview Avenue Public School rebuild $17.8 million • West Carleton Secondary School addition $6.4 million • New Stittsville Secondary School $36.1 million • A.Y. Jackson Secondary School addition $6.4 million • Viscount Alexander Public School addition $2.43 million • New Avalon II Elementary School $13.65 million • New Findlay Creek Elementary School $13.65 million

Light rail a welcome addition

NOTICE OF COMPLETION Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Carp Snow Disposal Facility

Brier Dodge

Background In January 2012, the City of Ottawa initiated a study to establish a new snow disposal facility in the City’s west end. The City’s strategic snow disposal plan (2002) had identified the need to provide for 308,000 m3 of disposal capacity within one or more snow disposal facilities in the west end. This MCEA study was conducted as a Schedule B project in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, as amended 2011, an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. The Process


By 7 p.m., about 70 residents had shown up to the city’s transportation master plan consultation at the Bob McQuarrie Recreation Complex. The Oct. 24 consultation was a chance for residents to ask city staff questions about the plan and details. Road, including a multi-use path on Shefford. “People are really happy, elated, about Cyrville, because right now it’s extremely dangerous,” he said. “It’s a complete disaster, dog’s breakfast.” Residents Nancy and Dave Biggs, who attended the consultation, both said they were happy to see cycling considered in the plan. “They’re thinking of active transportation and that’s key to having a livable city,” Nancy Biggs said. They said that maintaining pathways through low-season times – like clearing snow near the Green’s Creek pathways, where they cycle – will help keep cars off the road. They also highlighted bike storage and parking at the future light rail stations. And while the future rapid transit is welcomed, Nancy Biggs said she would like to see the overall cost of taking public transit reduced. “Public transit has to be quick, convenient and affordable, but right now it’s darn expensive,” she said. Vars resident Laurie Mc-

Cannell was happy to see things like sidewalks in the plan, but she would have been much happier if her community, in Cumberland Ward, was getting some. “We do have very significant needs for things that aren’t being addressed,” she said, noting most of the focus for the plan was for the denser, more urban parts of the city. But she said the plan was tied together well, with different elements designed to interact. “There is an arc, it’s tied together,” she said. The consultation ran from 4 to 8 p.m., and by 7 p.m., about 70 residents had been through the presentation and asked city staff questions. Many staff from different departments were on site to explain the plans. Light rail to Orléans would be complete in 10 years, by 2023, under the plan, which can be considered and potentially altered by the transportation committee on Nov. 15. City council has the final say on Nov. 26 for the plan, including $500 million light rail extension to Orléans.


News - The feedback at a recent consultation for the city’s transportation master plan was mostly positive from Orléans residents. A public consultation was held at the Bob McQuarrie Recreation Complex on Oct. 24. It presented plans for Ottawa’s transportation future and gave residents a chance to ask city staff questions. With light rail slated to come to Orléans, with stops continuing from Blair to a Montreal and St. Joseph station, a Jeanne d’Arc station, an Orléans Blvd. station and a Place d’Orléans station, the plan has been popular with east end residents who have long clamored for rapid transit. Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais said most questions he’s received have been of a more technical nature, rather than concerns. Depending what modifications would need to be done to the bus lanes along highway 174, the light rail expansion leaves open the potential for a concurrent highway widening, he said. Light rail is already underway for Coun. Tim Tierney’s Beacon Hill-Cyrville Ward, with the end of the first phase at Blair. He said he’s been happy to see the light rail extension, because it will reduce traffic that will be coming from the east-end to the transit hub at Blair. The major aspects of the plan that benefit Gloucester residents are the roadwork modifications. The plan addresses transportation as a whole in Ottawa – including public transit, roads and bike paths. Among them in his ward is work on Cyrville Road, including widening and a bike lane, and Shefford

The recommended solution involves the development of a snow disposal facility (SDF) on a 23.4ha property located at civic address 2125 Carp Road that can accommodate approximately 350,000 m3 of snow collected from Kanata and nearby areas. The SDF development will include a 1-2ha meltwater pond to treat the runoff from the snow melt and a 4-5ha stormwater pond to treat storm water from on-site and off-site sources. Several mitigative measures have been proposed to minimize impacts from the SDF development and include a right-turn deceleration lane along Westbrook road, improving drainage beneath Westbrook Road, construction of a berm along the east property limit to mitigate noise, landscaping along the east and north limits for visual screening, and a liner beneath the meltwater pond and its outlet to protect groundwater quality.

More type 2 diabetes diagnoses

Notice of Completion East Urban Community (Phase 2) Environmental Management Plan Class Environmental Assessment Report Available for Review The City of Ottawa has prepared an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) to support the Community Design Plan for Phase 2 of the East Urban Community. The EMP identifies the stormwater management solution for the study area, which is bounded by Renaud Road to the north, the CPR railway tracks to the south, Mer Bleue Road to the east and Phase 1 of the East Urban Community to the west. The Environmental Management Plan has been completed as a Master Plan under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process. The Master Plan identifies the stormwater management infrastructure requirements for future development in the study area. This notice serves as a Notice of Completion for the following projects: stormwater management pond (Schedule B); and diversion of drainage between watersheds (Schedule C).

The War Amps legacy of “amputees helping amputees” continues, thanks to public support of the Key Tag and Address Label Service.

The East Urban Community (Phase 2) EMP report details the study process, findings and recommendations. Consultation for the EMP has included technical advisory committee meetings and public open houses as part of the class environmental assessment process and is documented in the report. The public is invited to review the EMP at the following locations:

Community - Long considered an adult-only disease, type 2 diabetes is becoming more prevalent among children. Children as young as eight years of age are being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and the incidence appears to be increasing rapidly. The development of type 2 diabetes is closely related to obesity; however other risk factors include family history, ethnic background, and physical inactivity. Dr. Jonathan McGavock, a Canadian Diabetes Association past scholar and research scientist at the Manitoba Institute of Child Health presented an oral abstract at an annual meeting in Montreal. The POWER trial identifies the effects of vigorous versus moderate intensity exercise training on obese youth and their risk of developing type 2 diabetes. This trial was conducted to better understand what type of physical activity will help prevent obese children from developing type 2 diabetes. “Physical activity plays a powerful role in the prevention and management of type 2 diabetes, however, little data exists to describe the role of physical activity

in the prevention of type 2 diabetes in obese youth,” says McGavock. Obese youth ages 13 to 19 years old were recruited for the trial. The 120 selected youth were randomly placed into three groups. Over a period of six months, physical activity programming was delivered three times weekly for 30 to 45 minutes to both groups. The study concluded that increased physical activity, regardless of intensity, leads to fat reduction in obese youth. Vigorous physical activity was not associated with greater loss of fat tissue relative to moderate physical activity, despite the original hypothesis stating that vigorous intensity physical activity would lead to a greater reduction in fat tissue. “These findings are important as they indicate any level of physical activity will reduce the long-term effect of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes in obese youth,” says McGavock. “The future goal for my work is to create muchneeded objective evidence to inform public policy and clinical decision making for the role of physical activity in the prevention of type 2 diabetes in youth.” R0012371669_1024

St. Peter students pledge to drive safely Brier Dodge

News - Students at St. Peter High School have been visiting every homeroom, encouraging students to take a safe driving pledge. “Blaring the music, one hand out the window,â€? student council co-president Stephen Evans said, describing typical teenage distracted driving. The students took part in the Celebrate My Drive program, which encourages students and community members to make daily safe driving commitments. Every day, from Oct. 18 to 26, students over the age of 14 are asked to make a different safe driving commitment – like being mindful of speed limits, or not texting while driving. The program is being run in the school by the student council and co-presidents Evans and Julia Obas, and is an initiative of State Farm. Student council representatives have been going to the different homerooms in the morning, talking to students about distracted driving, and taking them through the pledges. Though phones aren’t normally allowed in class, homeroom teachers made an exception for students to take the commitment on the spot. Student council members said while texting and driving is still an issue, the bigger problem is new drivers focusing on music and friends in the car instead of the road. “It’s gooďŹ ness when driving and trying to look cool,â€? Evans said, adding that driving can

be impaired by extra distractions even when the driver is sober. Grade 12 student council rep Mackenzie Lowe said she keeps the music low or off when she’s driving, and will take multiple trips to drive friends home to keep within the driving restrictions for G2 level drivers which limit the number of passengers during certain hours. “It’s important to set the example for young-

er kids that it’s cool to drive safe,� Lowe said. Teacher adviser Nancy Siddons said it’s good for the younger students to see older role models giving the safe driving message. While not all high school students drive yet, most will be passengers at some point with a friend who does have a licence, Grade 12 rep Alexa AbouAssali said. Being a good passenger can mean letting the driver focus on the road, not cranking up the music and answering the driver’s cellphone or encouraging them to leave it alone. “The biggest thing I tell my friends is just to ignore (their phones). Put it on airplane mode if they have to,� Evans saisd. If the students collect enough pledges, they could end up winning a grant or the ultimate prize, a concert by Kelly Clarkson. High schools across North America are eligible to join the program. St. Peter was encouraged to join the program by Lori Ishii, a local State Farm agent. “As a school, it’s something we couldn’t pass on,� said St. Peter’s principal Norma McDonald. “As an educator, I’ve lost students in car crashes.� Anyone in the community can visit the website at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School is also participating in the Celebrate My Drive program.

Calm amidst political storms


f for no other reason, Ottawa’s city council should be applauded for bringing a muchneeded dose of stability to an otherwise messy political scene with its 2014 draft budget tabled last week. Amid the gusting winds of a Senate scandal on Parliament Hill and the simmering gas plant saga surrounding the minority Liberals at Queen’s Park, voters in this city should be thankful that, at a minimum, there is stability on Laurier Avenue. For the fourth year running, the council led by Mayor Jim Watson has presented a budget that has managed to keep the accompanying property tax hike below 2.5 per cent (the hike will be a mere 1.9 per cent in 2014 if the plan passes). That is no easy feat, especially considering the wide-ranging scope of infrastructure and transportation-related projects either underway or being planned across the city. But with an election only a year away, what is in store for Ottawans when the bills start arriving for the grand vision that is the transportation master plan (also in draft form currently) and things like Canada’s 150th birthday celebration? Will modest tax increases still be a viable option when it’s time to fund rail to OrlÊans (and Riverside South, Algonquin College and Bayshore)?

The sesquicentennial is something that shouldn’t be underestimated in the years to come: yes the federal and provincial governments will pick up much of the tab, but the temptation will be strong for municipal politicians to make their mark when the country celebrates a century and a half of Confederation. And what of political ambition? Next October voters head back to the polls to pass judgement on this council and those seeking to supplant the current class of civic leaders. Will fiscal prudence be enough to sway the hearts and minds of Ottawa? Or will a new, more expensive vision win the day? New parks, community centres, libraries, arenas, baseball diamonds, soccer fields and cycling lanes are things that many people want, yet are often told the city can’t afford. Who is to say voters couldn’t be sold on an extra one per cent on their tax bill in exchange for such civic improvements. The next election will doubtlessly be a referendum on Watson, especially his tight control over the city’s purse strings. This doesn’t mean he won’t change his tune by the time election season gets underway late next summer, but it would be surprising if he did. In the meantime, residents should rest easy knowing scandal and chaos are nowhere to be found at city hall – just business as usual.


Fighting the curse of sameness


t’s a rather abstract concept for city planners and city councils to think about, but one of the biggest threats to any city, including ours, is the curse of sameness. Sameness has the power of the economic system behind it, not to mention certain cultural forces as well. To illustrate, look at a recent headline in the Globe and Mail: “Put away your sou’wester. Chic is the new norm in Newfoundland’s big city – so are espresso bars and restaurants with a refined culinary focus.â€? Inside, the article begins: “Ten years go, it was impossible to get a decent cup of coffee in downtown St. John’s.â€? But, the article cheerfully goes on, oil-driven economic prosperity has changed all that: “It’s hard to walk for a block on Water Street, the city’s main drag, without hitting a slick cafĂŠ.â€? You’ll note the sense of relief here, in that “all across the city, there’s a newfound sense of urban cosmopolitanism that seems to have everyone a bit gobsmacked.â€? In other words, St. John’s could be becoming more like Toronto. Is that good? Perhaps it is if you’re from another place and your priority is finding a cup of coffee. But not so

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town much if you live there and want your town to keep its identity. And not so much if you’re from another town and want to see a place that’s different from the one you came from. Sameness is not an overnight thing. It has been creeping in for decades, beginning in the suburbs and working its way downtown. I remember visiting St. John’s 25 years ago and walking around a mall looking for something Newfoundlandesque to bring home as a present. I couldn’t find anything. Everything in that mall I could have found at Bayshore. But then, malls do that. Generally speaking, the stores in them are part of national or continental chains. The merchandise comes from elsewhere. Although many city cores, including, actually, St. John’s, retain their distinctiveness,

OrlĂŠans News EMC - Thursday, October 31, 2013

the suburban sameness trend has intensified in the past 25 years, propelled by the big box store and the power centre. If you went to, say, the Centrum in Kanata, you could just as easily be in a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama as in a suburb of Ottawa, Ontario. There is probably no fighting this. Free trade, globalization – all today’s economic forces push it. It doesn’t help that we, the consumers, are doing some pushing of our own, demanding the same products, the same services, the same slick cafÊs that are available elsewhere. We also want all the same television shows and with them, we see the same advertisements for the same products that are seen everywhere else. Given all that, it is a wonder that anything distinctive survives anywhere. Still, it is an incentive to protect what we can of the things that separate one community from another. There is more to city life than slick cafÊs. At the very least we can make our slick cafÊs different from other cities’ slick cafÊs. It comes down to protecting and encouraging local owners. How this is to be done is not easy to figure out or someone would have figured it out by now. We sort of know what not to do. We know not to say yes to every

developer who wants to put a condo where a theatre was. But we don’t know where to find the courage to say it. We know not to let commercial rents rise so high that only chains can afford to pay them. But again, we haven’t found a way to do that. We know we should be encouraging local shoppers to shop local, but again, how do we do that, particularly when the chains are selling stuff cheaper? A good start would be at least to recognize what is unique about the city and recognize that it is worth keeping.

Senior robbed while walking on Innes Road News - A 69-year-old woman was walking home after getting off the bus on Innes Road on Oct. 19 at 1 a.m. when she was robbed. She was walking when she felt someone try to take her bag from behind her, according to a police media release. The woman held onto the bag and the man

let go of the bag, punched the victim in the head and made a derogatory remark. He then ran away with a second man, without the bag. The woman had minor injuries but did not require medical attention. The two men were last seen running southbound on Bed-

doe Lane. The first man is described as a Caucasian male, 18 to 22-years-old with a thin build and a shaved head. He had blonde hair, an oval face, pale complexion and was wearing a white bomber-style jacket and pale blue jeans.

The second suspect was also a Caucasian man, 18 to 22-years-old, and was wearing dark blue jeans. The Ottawa police are investigating the incident and have asked anyone with information to call the robbery unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5116.

What’s in the budget for your neighbourhood? City plans its spending in the east end for 2014 Laura Mueller

News - Homeowners in Ottawa’s urban area will see an average of an extra $62 on their city tax bill in 2014. That 1.9 per cent increase – the smallest municipal tax-rate increase in seven years – was proposed in the city’s draft budget, released on Oct. 23. The increase for rural homeowners is slightly smaller – 1.9 per cent increase for an average of $55 extra per home. Residential garbage fees would be held at $82 and recreation fees will continue to be frozen – a promise the mayor made during his election campaign in 2010. The mayor’s salary and councillors’ office budgets will also stay the same. The equivalent of 55 full-time jobs would be eliminated without layoffs. All of those positions were vacated by employees leaving or retiring in the last six months and the city is not keeping them open for future hires. Next year is also when residents and businesses will see a number

of key city services go online: the MyServiceOttawa online account will let people view and pay water and tax bills online, as well as apply for a number of licences and permits. A mobile app for 311 service requests is also in the works. With a large glut of Ottawa on the Move road and sewer construction projects as well as the first phase of light rail out of the way, the city isn’t planning many large new construction projects, so the city won’t have to take on any additional debt in 2014, Mayor Jim Watson said. The city does plan to take out new debt equivalent to the amount of debt it will retire from its books in 2014, said city treasurer Marian Simulik. ROADS, CYCLING AND SIDEWALKS

The city’s big plans for bringing light rail to the east end would get underway in 2014 with environmental assessments of the line proposed to connect Blair Station to Place d’Orléans. Ottawa on the Move will con-

tinue with 150 projects hitting the ground in 2014, including $4.6 million to design an extension of Brian Coburn Boulevard and buy the land needed to build it between Navan and Mer Bleue roads. In the east end, roads to be resurfaced include: • Sections of highway 174 • Cleroux Crescent • Matheson Road • Stonehenge Crescent • Kinsella Drive • Charlton Drive • Royal Orchard Drive In addition to repaving sections of highway 174, the city plans to spend $750,000 to replace lighting. Improved safety measure for the rural section of the 174 from east of Trim to just east of Quigley Hill are also planned. The overpass at Old Montreal Road and Cardinal Creek would be renewed. The city plans to spend $330,000 for measures to deal with traffic growth at the intersection of Brian Coburn and Portobello boulevards. Overall, the city plans to spend $45 million to resurface roads in 2014 and an additional $4 million to improve traffic flow through key intersections during rush hour, including at Montreal and Shefford roads.

Pedestrian improvements planned for the east end mainly relate to improve connections to schools, transit and parks, including a new sidewalk on Jeanne d’Arc Boulevard between Champlain Street to Tenth Line Road. Cycling facilities would see $2 million in improvements in 2014, according to the budget, which also contains money for a new cycling transportation planning staffer. PARKS AND REC

Money to design the future Francois Dupuis Community Centre, is part of the draft budget. As communities in the east end continue to grow, a slew of new parks are set to be built: • Royal Ridge Park • Boisdale Park, Cardinal • Creek Park • Dr. Taite Linear Park • Forest Park in Chapman Mills • Forest Park in Havencrest • Millennium Park • Petrie Landing Park II • Trails Edge Park 1 Millennium Park would get several new soccer fields and a new splash pad, according to Cumberland Coun. Stephen Blais. “Soccer is one of the fastest growing youth sports in Ottawa,”

Blais said in a news release.  “By adding new soccer fields we will allow more of our children to participate in amateur sports and live a healthier lifestyle.” Overall the city plans to spend $2 million to improve accessibility in its parks and buildings, including: Bob MacQuarrie Recreation Complex, Blackburn Community Centre and Cyrville Community Centre. Six libraries, including the Cumberland branch, will get technology upgrades to use radio-frequency identification tracking for materials. Also for libraries, the city is planning to permanently increase its annual budget for e-books by $50,000. CONSULTATIONS

There is one remaining public consultation at which residents can ask questions and share thoughts on the draft budgets: Thursday, Nov.7 at council chambers in city hall, 110 Laurier Ave. W. from 7 to 9 p.m. Feedback on the draft budget can also be emailed to or your city councillor, or you can tweet feedback by tagging #ottbudget on Twitter.

Arthritis Society urges Canadians to Share the Pain COMMUNITY - The Arthritis Society today launched a nationwide campaign to urge Canadians to speak up and Share the Pain they experience in living with arthritis. The society is aiming to change the conversation about arthritis and trigger a candid, national discussion on the reality of a disease that affects millions of Canadians of every age.

“We want to hear from the more than 4.6 million Canadians who live with the pain of arthritis each and every day – whether it is physical, emotional or financial pain,” said Janet Yale, president and CEO of the Arthritis Society. “The campaign website can be found at The site offers a national exchange of experiences including tools to comment and “like” the stories of others.

To cast as wide a net as possible, stories can also be shared at 1-855-599-PAIN, on Twitter and Facebook. “I wish this tool had been around when my disease was first diagnosed,” said Sara Lebensold, a 31-year-old who lives with chronic pain from palindromic rheumatoid arthritis. “Having the support of a community of people going through the same things I am, their insights,

inspiration – even just a sympathetic ear would have made a huge difference for me in coming to terms with my arthritis and taking back ownership of my life.” “We believe we can change perceptions that others hold about this disease through a national conversation about the reality of living with arthritis,” said Yale. “As we like to say, we have arthritis but it doesn’t have us.”

A fascination with hands


ften, when I was sitting at the old pine table at night with the coal oil lamp giving off faint shards of light, I examined the hands of those around me. For reasons I was never able to explain, I was deeply interested in other people’s hands. Even though the same blood ran through our veins, there weren’t two of us with the same hand shapes. I would look over at Father, slouched in the old rocking chair close to the Findlay Oval, and I could see his hands holding the Ottawa Farm Journal. They were small hands, I thought, for a man, but I knew them to be powerful. They were calloused and wore the look of hard labour, and they could tie up a pig or roll a heifer with ease. But when he ruffled my hair, as he often did when he passed me, his hands were gentle and loving. My sister Audrey had long tapering fingers and I always thought her hands were narrow. I would look at them and try to compare them with my own, which, even with a young eye, I could see that mine were wider by far. How I would envy Audrey her pretty hands. I knew too, that the reason she was able to do such beautiful hand work, embroidering French knots and lazy daisies on our tea towels and pillow cases, was because she had the perfect hands for the job. Even the hands of my three brothers differed from each other. Earl, the smallest, had hands that suited his slight build. Everett, the oldest of the three, had hands that were already beginning to show he would be expected to carry his weight on the farm. He complained of calluses and often

Light Rail to Orléans When I committed to championing Light Rail to Orléans in the last election many believed it was an impossible dream. But after three years of hard work and laser like focus I am so very happy to say that the City of Ottawa is recommending LRT be extended to Orléans more than a decade ahead of the previous council’s schedule. Stage 2 of the City's Light Rail system will include an extension of LRT to Place d'Orléans adjacent to HWY 174. At the same time, we hope this will allow us to widen HWY 174 by using the bus lanes for cars instead. When this comes to pass, we will have solved the biggest challenge facing Orléans and Cumberland commuters and we will do it a generation ahead of the previous council's plan. Furthermore, once the plan is approved, the City will immediately begin the environmental and budgeting work to prepare a request to the Federal and Provincial governments for a tripartite funding agreement. It is our hope that the Province and Federal governments will demonstrate the same commitment to transit in Ottawa and Orléans as they have to other cities in Ontario. Residents of Orléans and Cumberland have long demonstrated their commitment to public transit. More of us use OC Transpo than any other part of the city. And it is believed that Orléans has the highest ridership from the suburbs to downtown than any other comparable city in North America. Over the coming weeks, months and years I will be working hard to make our case, ensure we have the resources necessary to achieve our goal and deliver LRT to Orléans.

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories said his fingers hurt. There was little sympathy for Everett -- he was needed on the farm and the sooner he got used to hard work the better off he would be, Father told him. Emerson, the biggest of the three, but the middle son, had big hands. They matched perfectly his big frame and his almost six-foot height by the time he was 12 years old. But Mother always said Emerson had the hands of an artist. How she could tell, I had no idea, but she believed one day Emerson would be a great artist or a builder of fine buildings with those hands. So she squirrelled change out of her egg money from the blue sugar bowl and took advantage of Ritza’s Rexall Drug Store one cent sale and bought him art paper and soft leaded pencils, so sure was she that Emerson’s hands would one day make him famous. I would look at Mother, too, sitting at the end of the table, with her diaries spread out around her, with a bottle of real ink in front of her and a pen. She always wrote in her diaries with ink, never with pencil. If would look at her hands and then at mine, I would think that our hands of all those in the family were the most alike. Her two little fingers, like mine, had a slight bend in them. I would watch her, face down over her diaries, and I would hope that one day I too could fill scribbler after scribbler with my thoughts and wishes, just like my mother. We children were never allowed to read her diaries – “diaries are private” she would say – and we knew better than go near them, stacked in neat piles on one of the top-most shelves of the back-tothe-wall cupboard. Sometimes, she would write so quickly, as her thoughts came and for so long, that she would have to stop and rub her fingers to ease the stiffness. That’s when I would notice how much our hands were alike, even though mine were smaller. My interest in hands came naturally, I decided many years later, because they played such an important part in our lives. Our brothers were taught at an early age to offer a hand to anyone older than they were and whom they happened to meet on the streets of Renfrew. Off would come the caps and the hand would

be thrust out in greeting. My sister Audrey and I were excused from handshaking, which was a great relief to me. At an early age, I noticed the difference between a greeting handshake and one that was used to close a deal. In greeting, the hands were pumped, up and down, up and down, like a pump handle. But if a deal was coming to a close, the hands met in a clasp and one handshake was all it took. One pump and the deal

Everett, the oldest of the three, had hands that were already beginning to show he would be expected to carry his weight on the farm

was done. It didn’t take a lawyer to make a deal binding, just a simple handshake. It was impossible to live in that old log house in Northcote, and not be aware of hands. Clean hands, too – Mother was a stickler for clean hands. The wash basin sat on the bench at the back door, the water changed often, a homemade bar of soap in a saucer beside it and a huck towel on a roller on the wall. No one got within a country mile of the table at mealtime without a thorough wash of the hands. We never set out for school without washing our hands. The last thing we did before we crawled into bed at night was wash our hands. Emerson, who thought Mother took this clean hands business too far, often could be heard saying, under his breath of course, “I think we must have the cleanest hands in all of Renfrew County.” Well, that’s the way Mother wanted it, and what Mother wanted, Mother got. None of us dared question her.

Carrot spice bundt cake makes a nice fall treat Lifestyle - You can’t go wrong with this super easy cake that’s iced with a gooey cream cheese frosting. Prep time: 20 minutes. Baking time: 45 minutes. Serves 12 to 14. Ingredients


Scream and shout The Kiwanis Club of Orléans was back at it again this year, running the Skreamers at the Proulx Farm. Every year, they fashion a new display at the farm for October weekends in order to raise money for the Kiwanis Adventure Park development at the Cumberland Millenium Sports Park.

Icing • 1 package (125 g /4 oz) cream cheese, at room temperature • 25 ml (2 tbsp) butter, at room temperature

• 375 to 500 ml (1-1/2 to 2 cups) sifted icing sugar • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) vanilla • Squeeze of lemon Preparation

Lightly grease a 25-centimetre (10-inch) bundt pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt and baking soda. In a large bowl, whisk the oil with sugar then eggs and vanilla, then stir in the flour mixture until blended. Stir in the carrots and apple. Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the top as best you can. Bake in a 180 C (350 F) oven until toothpick in-

serted in cake comes out clean – about 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cake stand in the pan on a baking rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around edge and then carefully turn out onto the rack, allowing it cool completely before icing. Icing: In a large bowl and using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese with the butter until it’s smooth and creamy. Gradually add icing sugar until the mixture is a thick, spreadable consistency. Beat in the vanilla and lemon juice until blended. Add a little more icing sugar if mixture is too runny to spread. Foodland Ontario

Oh, the humanity Community - The inaugural Zombie Run for Humanity drew some nasty looking undead to the former Nepean national equestrian park on Corkstown Road on Oct. 19. The park’s fenced pathways and dark, creepy woods made it hard for runners and walkers to avoid lurking zombies who

grabbed at the three flags worn by each of the participants. Losing all three flags meant runners and walkers became part of the undead at the finish line. More than 300 people took part in the morning’s events, a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity-National Capital Region.

Pet Adoptions


Brando is an outgoing and playful, five-year-old, neutered male, domestic shorthair cat who arrived at the OHS in February from another shelter. This interactive kitty loves to engage in play with people and toys. He especially loves feather wands, laser pointers and “Cat Dancer” toys. Bruno enjoys being groomed and having his ears scratched and, although he is happiest when he has your full attention, he is also content to relax on a window sill and watch the birds and squirrels outside. Brando would make a lovely companion on walks as he enjoys walking on a harness. Brando is a “Special Needs” cat because he is currently being fed a hypo-allergenic and may require ongoing veterinary care. To learn more about Brando, please contact the Ottawa Humane Society at 613-725-3166 ext 258 or visit us at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Visit the OHS website at to see photos and descriptions of all of the animals available for adoption. Stop by the Adoption Centre, weekdays 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Ottawa Humane Society reminds pet owners to keep pets safe as the weather cools

My name is Bullet I’m a Chihuahua, I will be 3 years old November 24th, I was born in Rockland and I moved to Orleans when I was 7 weeks. I weigh 9 pounds full grown and I’m in very good health. I’m a bit shy, but I want them to know I`m still the Boss. As you can see in the picture I love lying down in the Sun, don`t forget I’m a Mexican ChiChi. I love to play Football with my family, I do a few tricks for treats!!.

body fat. Short-haired pets feel the cold faster, as they have less protection from the elements. Try outfitting your pet with a sweater or jacket to make your walks more comfortable. The same consideration should be taken for very young and old pets. Stay inside: Pets should be kept inside during cold weather. Dogs that live outside require, at minimum, a doghouse soundly built of weatherproof materials and positioned facing away from prevailing winds. Make sure the doghouse is elevated and insulated, with a door flap and bedding of straw or wood shavings. Animals that are outside need a constant source of fresh water, so check your dog’s bowl often to ensure it hasn’t frozen over. Identification: Having an animal run away from home at any time of the year is troublesome, but especially

Please note: The Ottawa Humane Society has many other companion animals available for adoption. Featured animals are adopted quickly!

during the colder seasons when it’s especially dangerous. Make sure your best friends are equipped with proper identification – including a collar, tag and microchip – to ensure they have the best possible chance of finding their way back to you. It’s best to limit the amount of outdoor time for any animal in frigid temperatures, so take your dog for lots of short walks instead of one long one. Remember never to leave an animal in an unheated car for long periods of time. The OHS recommends that cat owners keep their cats indoors year ‘round. If your cat does go outdoors, make sure it’s only for short periods and ensure your cat is inside overnight. If you see an animal in distress or without adequate shelter from the cold, call the OHS emergency line at (613) 725-1532.


Antifreeze: The taste of antifreeze is appealing to many animals and they will readily consume it if given the chance. But even a small amount of antifreeze can be harmful, or even fatal, to your pet. Consider a less toxic alternative to ethylene glycol-based antifreeze that is most commonly used. A new propylene glycol-based antifreeze available at many retail outlets and is safer for pets and humans alike. Car engines: Cats and wildlife are drawn to the heat generated by your car’s engine on cold days. Make sure you bang on your car’s hood to avoid injuring a sleeping creature. Know their limits: Just because Fido has his very own coat doesn’t mean he is staying warm on your long fall walks. Just like people, pets’ tolerance to cold weather differs individually based on their coat, activity levels, health and

Expansion means more doctors for OrlĂŠans residents Brier Dodge

News - A new expansion at the Primacy Family First Health Centre, located inside the Real Canadian Superstore on Innes Road, will allow ďŹ ve new physicians to work in OrlĂŠans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is 5,000 more people in OrlĂŠans that will have a family doctor, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge deal,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Kathleen Kelly, the health teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead physician. There were seven practices and a variety of other medical service providers working out of the centre before, all sharing space. Lack of space was what held the health team back from


adding more physicians at an earlier date. The health team ďŹ rst started operating in June 2011, and includes medical staff like a nurse practitioner, a dietician, psychologist, social worker, nurses and a respiratory therapist. The expansion includes more space for doctors, as well as other medical staff to better function and operate. This includes a new meeting room, which can be used for seminars or group counselling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We operated for quite a while crammed into the physician space,â&#x20AC;? Kelly said. The doctors will be joining the health team over the next few months, and the health team expects to have 17,000 patients by 2015. Kelly said several doctors have retired in the OrlĂŠans area recently, leaving many residents needing a local doctor. The mandate of the family health team is to serve OrlĂŠans, Blackburn Hamlet and Navan. They will now have space to support various programs the team of doctors and medical staff run, including a diabetes program, advanced access for urgent care by a pediatric nurse practitioner, a mental health program and elder care program. The health team is open seven days a week, as doctors rotate to cover evening and weekend shifts, meaning there are always


Doctors Giovanni Bonacci and Kathleen Kelly pose in the Family First Health Centre at the Real Canadian Superstore on Innes Road. The addition allows new doctors to join the office, and they can accommodate 5,000 new patients. same-day appointments available instead of having walk-in hours, said alternate lead physician Dr. Giovanni Bonacci. OrlĂŠans MPP Phil McNeely said the family health team model - with a team of doctors and medical staff - is becoming more and more popular in Ontario. He said the Primacy group has a different focus than the services planned for the OrlĂŠans Health Hub, which is expected to have more specialist doctors, who work on referrals from family physicians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A common complaint now is that specialists have their ofďŹ ces west of the Greenbelt, or at hospitals, making access difďŹ cult,â&#x20AC;?

McNeely said. He said he expects the health hub model to allow for other area doctors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as physicians who are part of the existing health team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to refer patients to the specialists the health hub hopes to attract. Exact clinics and specialists that will be on site havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been ďŹ nalized yet. Proposals for the hub have included some clinics that are at Primacyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centre already, like a diabetes clinic, but other services that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, such as a chronic pain unit. The health hub will also have diagnostics and laboratory work on site at the hub, which the health team at the centre no lon-

ger offers. The main focus of the hub is to shift care services from high cost organizations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like hospitals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to lower cost facilities. The health hub construction timeline hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been announced yet, but it will be located near Mer Bleue Road and Brian Coburn Way. The Champlain Local Integrated Health Network said that the most recent update they have available for the health hub was from December 2012. There have been no updates from the LIHN in 2013 on the health hubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status. In the December 2012 outline, there was space allocated for another family health team to also be located at the health hub. The physicians joining the family health team at the Real Canadian Superstore have already started accepting new patients. To register, potential patients need to call the health centre to make an appointment at 613-841-7009. Doctors joining the Primacy Family First Health Centre: â&#x20AC;˘ Dr. Pamela Anand, specialty in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health medicine â&#x20AC;˘ Dr. Elissa Cucan and Dr. Peter Tanuseputro (husband and wife team forming one practice).

Nicole St. John, an Ottawa police officer, left, rehearses her lines with Russ Molot, a lawyer, at the Shenkman Arts Centre on Oct. 22. St. John and Molot will both be in the Feed the Hungry fundraising concert Nov. 6 to 9 at the Ottawa Little Theatre. 


Police officers hang up their uniforms to act for charity Brier Dodge

News - Ottawa police, police staff and lawyers will put aside the handcuffs and sirens for fuzzy cat ears and stage makeup.  From Nov. 6 to 9, legal professionals will perform in the Lawyers Feed the Hungry fundraising play at the Ottawa Little Theatre.  The performance is called Still Looking for Paradise, and follows a small law firm trying to stop oil drilling in the local community park.  It’s narrated by Mr. Whiskers, the office cat, played by Nepean resident and lawyer Russ Molot.  “It’s a story about a dysfunctional law firm, and how they take on big corporate Canada,” Molot said.  Molot has been in many plays and movies, so he’s no stranger to the stage, unlike Parkdale-area police officer Nicole St. John.  It’s the first time St. John has ever acted, and she’ll take on the role of a junior partner at the law firm.  She’s friends with playwrite Ian Stauffer’s wife, who en-

couraged her to get involved with the play, a fundraiser for the Lawyers Feed the Hungry program, which runs at the Ottawa Mission.  The hardest part of taking on the role has been memorizing all the lines, St. John said. But as she knows another officer and civilian police staff in the play, at least she has “strength in numbers,” she said.  “Each week I feel more confident. It’s been nice working on the stage,” St. John said. She’s been travelling to the Shenkman Arts Centre to practise with OYP Theatre School’s Kathi Langston, who is directing the show.  Oautside of that, rehearsals have been held at the main police station on Elgin Street.  Stauffer has been behind many fundraising plays at the Great Canadian Theatre Company on Wellington Street. Because of his police officer-wife, he decided to write another play to raise more funds for the program.  Langston came on as the artistic director, and said she got more talent than she bargained for with the rookie actors - less than a third of the actors in the performance have acted be-

fore.  “They’re really good,” Langston said. “It’s been so much fun. I think people forget that people officers are people too.”  Lawrence Wall, of CBC radio, will stay in his character, cast as a reporter, and Ontario Superior Court Judge Robert Beaudoin will take on the role of court clerk.  The audience will get a chance to get involved during the second half of the play, Langston said.  OYP is working to prepare the actors in an on-stage setting, because they’ll only get two rehearsals at the Ottawa Little Theatre before opening night. OYP is also working on costumes for the production.  “Producing this sort of thing is huge,” Langston said.  Opening night tickets are available for $25, and tickets for Nov. 7 to 9 are $50, a portion of which is tax deductible. To date, Lawyers Feed the Hungry plays have raised $26,000 for the Mission, through ticket sales and donations.  Tickets are available at or by calling 613-233-8948.

Community - Shenkman Arts Centre is getting prepared for the ARTinis fundraising event this year, and so are the artists displaying their work. Hosted by the AOE Arts Council, the Nov. 7 event, themed AOE Lights Up the Night, will feature several artists’ light installations. Artists who will fill Shenkman with their light creations include Darryl Hall, Ian Matthews, Karen Goetzinger, Jennifer Stewart and Michael Parkin. Parkin works with metal, sculpture and a variety of mediums. He’s no stranger to Shenkman, having displayed sculptures in the Trinity Art Gallery before. On Nov. 7, his pieces – which use LED lamps to create shadows and patterns – will be in the walls under the main stairwell and in the corner of the lower lobby. “The shadows are constantly changing and moving,” Parkin said. “It’s almost like watching a movie that has no content. People like to just sit and watch the patterns.” He said he’s looking forward to seeing what the other artists have created using light. Working with light has been new and different for him, with most of his previous work “fairly conventional sculpture,” he said. Parkin received funding from the ARTicipate Endowment Fund, the same fund the ARTinis

Walkers prepare set off from city hall with lanterns held aloft prior to the Light the Night Walk.

Community - Hundreds joined together for the Light the Night Walk on Oct. 19 at city hall to remember loved ones lost to cancer and to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. Blood cancer survivors carried white lanterns, supporters carried a red light and those with gold lanterns walked in memory of a loved one.

Six-year-old cancer survivor Alyssa Gammie holds her lantern high as she can during a ceremony prior to the start of the Light the Night Walk on Oct. 19 at city hall. The Bells Corners girl led the march, carrying a Light the Night banner nearly as tall as her with the help of friends.

Homes for the Holidays just around the corner! by Robert Greenslade The eleventh annual Homes for the Holidays tour on November 15, 16 and 17, is only days away and anticipation is building for this very special event. The tour, now its eleventh year, supports end-of-life care programs offered by Hospice Care Ottawa, including those at the May Court Hospice. “Homes for the Holidays will help us improve hospice services in Ottawa and reach our goal of increasing the number of area beds,” noted Lisa Sullivan, Executive Director of Hospice Care Ottawa. The tour is open daily from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and features six outstanding homes in the neighbourhoods of Rockcliffe Park, Rothwell Heights, the Glebe, Old Ottawa South and Island Park Drive. Prominent area florists and designers will volunteer their decorating skills to the homes: three reflecting a specific seasonal theme (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) and three highlighting the festive spirit of the holidays. For example,104 Black Maple Private features a “Very Special Christmas Eve”. This home is one of a collection of six elegant residences on the street. Mood Moss Florist and Jacobsons Gourmet Concepts combine their decorating talents to this home. Another Rockcliffe Park home, the residence of the Swiss Ambassador to Canada (494 Lansdowne Road North), is a stately French Château-style home, decorated for the tour by Tivoli Florist. This house was acquired by the Government of Switzerland in 1948 and enjoys frontage on picturesque McKay Lake. Striking 13 Massey Lane in Rothwell Heights is decorated by Stoneblossom Floral Gallery. The home features mature trees and is notable for its cedar shingles, copper roof accents and front canopy. A “Christmas Morning Wonder” (Tinseltown offers the Christmas decorative magic here) awaits visitors to 8 Thornton Avenue, just steps from bustling Bank Street. It’s interesting to note that the homeowner and her father worked closely to design the exterior and interior of this sun-drenched home. A relatively new home, designed by Barry Hobin and decorated by Mill Street Florist, 900 Colonel By Drive’s stucco and stone exterior gives way to a light and airy interior and preserves ties to its past by retaining the property’s 150-year-old stone wall. And visitors will not want to miss 512 Island Park Drive, decorated by Michael Courdin Design, for the “New Year’s Eve Celebration”! This contemporary home features many windows which give the house a strong connection to the outdoors. Participants will also want to visit the completely revamped Holiday PopUp Shop, this year located at the Official Residence of the Irish Ambassador (291 Park Road). Visitors will be able to get a head start on their holiday shopping and browse the children’s corner, affordable artwork, jewellery, seasonal décor, and delicious preserves prepared by some of the region’s top food purveyors (and visitors can pause for a coffee or tea too). And the best news is you won’t have to go far for tickets! Tickets are available at 25 outlets across the city and via PayPal too.
