thanked by cancer society Chapel Hill woman receives Celebrating Dedication Award Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - How many volunteer roles does Vicky Pullam have with the Canadian Cancer Society? Too many to keep track of. “I have my fingers in a fair number of pies,” the Chapel Hill resident said. “But it’s all very good and it’s something that I love to do.” Pullam trains volunteers, works in the office, facilitates a group for survivors and caregivers, works in volunteer engagement and steps in wherever else she’s needed. She also sits on the Cancer Care Ontario advisory board for patients and family members. So there’s no surprise that the Ottawa unit decided that there was a suitable volunteer out of their 3,500 to give a dedication award to. Pullam was the 2012 recipient of the Celebrating Dedication Award for the Ottawa area. She began to volunteer three years ago after retiring from the federal government. It was an easy choice of organizations after watching her mother, her aunt and her best friend pass away from the disease. “It has a really large role in defining who I am,” she said. Pullam has become very involved with a group she was once a member of, Living Well Beyond Cancer. The group helps cancer survivors and their caregivers transition into the next phase of their lives. She’s currently a facilitator for the six-week program. See CANCER, page 2

Orléans football players meet Grey Cup Iconic trophy stops at Rideau hall on way to 100th game Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - It wasn’t the average pre-game routine for the Orléans Bengals bantam football team as they, along with the club’s mosquito division team, greeted the Grey Cup at Rideau Hall on Oct. 21. The Grey Cup was in Ottawa as a part of a cross-Canada tour. Dax Johnston, a CFL employee who was filling in for the day as the keeper of the Cup and was decked out in a suit and crisp white gloves, carried the cup up the walkway to CFL alumni, Gov. Gen. David Johnston, CFL commissioner Mark Cohon and a swarm of Bengals players. They moved into Rideau Hall as photos of Lord Grey and Lord Stanley – the Grey Cup and Stanley Cup’s namesakes – hung on the walls beside the cup. Lord Grey was a former governor general who donated the trophy in 1909. “There is something very special about

this great game,” Johnston said. “The trophy is steeped in history and is a reminder of all that unites us as Canadians.” Johnston reflected on the harsh-Canadian elements that have followed the Grey Cup game, with mud, rain, snow and fog often making appearances. “If the Cup could speak, what amazing stories it would have,” Cohon said. “It’s been lost, it’s stolen, it’s been forgotten at a hotel.” The Bengals players will have a story of their own, as they got a chance to pose with the Cup and meet Johnston and Cohon. Players were allowed to touch and pose with the cup, only restricted to not lifting the cup up over their heads – a gesture only allowed by those who have won the cup. But Orléans players were clearly inspired by the cup. When asked who was going to win the Cup – a question referring to the 2012 championship game – a good number put up their own hands. “We enjoyed ourselves, we realized it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Martin Prouse, 16, a member of the bantam team. Club president Dennis Prouse said that despite the bantam team’s game later in the day, it wasn’t an opportunity they could turn down.

Because CFL has been absent in Ottawa, national capital players haven’t had the chance to get into the Canadian league as much as other cities. “We missed a generation in Ottawa because the CFL left,” Prouse said. “It’s great to connect the kids to the history of the game. I’m thrilled to know Ottawa will once again have (CFL) football.” Cole Spencer, 10, who plays corner on the mosquito team, and said that it was even better than seeing the Stanley Cup would have been. supersize

“It was bigger than I thought,” he said. The Bengals didn’t walk away with a victory against the Bell Warriors later in the afternoon, but they still had a successful day to remember with a piece of football history. “It’s about a symbol of Canada, our stories, our football stories,” Cohon said. “(It’s) back to Rideau Hall where it all started.” The Grey Cup was on display at Rideau Hall, Hunt Club Nissan and at the Ottawa Trainyards for the main fan celebration. The 100th Grey Cup game will be played on Nov. 25 in Toronto.

“I believe in it whole-heartedly,” she said. “It’s really invaluable in setting people off on a fresh path.” The program encourages goal-setting and getting into a new life that doesn’t include the constant back-and-forth to the hospital for treatment. Pullam said she found it useful in helping her move past guilt that she hadn’t been a good enough caregiver for those in her life that had cancer. “I found it so helpful,” she said. “I liked it so much that I wanted to help.” She found it encouraging to be nomi-

Hydro Ottawa is thrilled to be recognized by its peers as the 2012 Large Company of the Year at the Ontario Energy Association Excellence Awards. The award recognizes Hydro Ottawa’s achievements in the energy sector in key business areas such as financial operations and management, customer service, distribution and environmental leadership. “These are all critical business areas, especially for an energy utility delivering an essential service to the nation’s capital,” said Bryce Conrad, Hydro Ottawa’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Hydro Ottawa’s accomplishments include strong financial results, with net income and dividends consistently exceeding expectations, and shareholder value increasing by $135 million over the past four years. During this time, Hydro Ottawa’s electricity distribution rates have been stable and among the most affordable in the province. At the same time, Hydro Ottawa has been one of the top performers in the industry in delivering supply reliability. These results have contributed to solid customer satisfaction scores recognized by the Electricity Distributors Association and most recently by Chartwell Inc. at its Customer Experience Conference in California, where finalists included major U.S. utilities Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas and Electric, PPL Electric and NIPSCO. “Consistently improving the customer relationship is a very strong focus for us. In addition to affordability and reliability, it is imperative that we also provide customers with ever-increasing value,” added Mr. Conrad. During his acceptance speech, Mr. Conrad acknowledged Hydro Ottawa’s employees as a major reason for the company’s continuing success. “They are highly skilled, dedicated, experienced, and engaged in achieving our goals. They are also community focused, generous with their charitable donations and quick to volunteer when we participate in community events,” he said. In thanking the Ontario Energy Association for sponsoring the award, Mr. Conrad promised that “Hydro Ottawa will do our best to be back on this podium in the future.”

Few baby boomers on Pharmacies now organ donation list offering flu shots EMC news - Almost twothirds of the 1,529 patients waiting for an organ transplant in Ontario are 50 years of age or older.  Though older Ontarians are most likely to need a lifesaving organ transplant, only 39 per cent of the 2.5 million registered organ and tissue donors are 50 or older. Despite common misconceptions, you are never too old to be a donor. In Ontario in 2011-12, almost half of the 222 people who gave the gift of life through organ donation after death were 50 or older. Registering as a donor can help prevent unnecessary deaths of Ontarians on the transplant waiting list.  Families approached to consider organ and tissue donation almost always consent time when they are Limited offer! given evidence of their loved one’s registration, while those who decline usually state it is

In 2011-12 the average consent rate for potential organ donors who were 50 or older was 52 per cent, compared to 68 per cent for those younger than 50.

Orléans student competes in Ultimate Dream Job contest Brier Dodge

brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - While some kids dream of becoming rock stars or professional athletes, Isaac Lockert was able to find his dream job just down St. Joseph Boulevard. Isaac recently entered the Ultimate Dream Job contest for Grade 9 students sponsored by Take Our Kids to Work with his photo of himself as a police officer. “I just like the idea of helping people out and it’s probably one of the more interesting ways to do that,” said Isaac, a Grade 9 student at St. Matthew High School. “Also, I like the idea of chasing down the bad guy,” he wrote in his online entry. He called the Orléans community police centre and went in for a visit to set up his photo. He got some help from Sgt. Keith Patrick and Staff Sgt. Kevin McCaffery at the station, who outfitted him in a bright yellow police jacket and set him up posing with a cruiser. Isaac won the fifth week of the contest with his entry, and took home a netbook, a small laptop, as his prize. The week of Oct. 22 to 28 he was up for voting for the overall winner. That winner will meet the Governor General, Speaker of the House, and professionals from their chosen career. Isaac would like to attend university to get a degree first, and then attend school for policing after. He’d like to stay close to come, and hopefully get a job with the Ottawa police, maybe even at the Orléans station. Early in the week, he said he was surprised with how many international votes he received. His mom has enlisted the help of an aunt in Taiwan and a friend is Los Angles; his dad’s business trip to Rome has encouraged Italian votes for Isaac. Bi-weekly Garbage Collection “It turns out I have people all over the world Submitted voting for me,” he said.

No big new promises in draft city budget Laura Mueller

TRANSPORTATION

laura.mueller@metroland.com

1101.R0011706557

Of course, the major transportation project in 2013 will be the start of construction on the first section of the city’s $2.1-billion light-rail transit system, including a tunnel under the downtown. The city is also proposing to sprinkle $4.9 million worth of traffic-signal changes around the city. There will be some new signals and alterations to existing signals, and additional audible signals for the vision impaired. The building of Brian Colbourn Boulevard from Navan to Mer Bleue will get some design funding in 2013 (construction in scheduled for 2014). The draft budget inclues $8.5 million worth of work to widen Mer Bleue Road between Innes and Navan. The widening of Tenth Line Road from Innes/Vanguard to the future “Street 31” is also on the books. The project now has a revised completion date of 2016 and the portion to be done this year is from Brian Colbourn bypass to Harvest Way. A noise wall is planned along highway 174 in Beacon Hill-Cyrville ward, including a noise barrier at Cedarcroft Crescent. There is a plan to spend about $1.5 million on an 1,800-metre long new sidewalk along North Service Road from the east leg of Rossignal Street east to Trim Road. The sidewalk will cross a number of ravines. Caron’s Road will get sidewalks from Montreal Road to Den Haag Drive. Small segments of sidewalks are slated to be added on Montreal Road between Shefford and the 174 on-ramp, on Polytek Street and Green Creek Drive.

SOCIAL SERVICES

The city has to grapple with a “dark cloud on the horizon” when it comes to social services, the mayor said. That’s because the provincial government is clawing back $7.15 million for discretionary benefits and the Community Start Up fund. That money goes towards a number of services for the most vulnerable residents of the city.“I’m concerned and I’m also not happy about it,” Watson said. While the city did receive an additional $5 million from the provincial government this year thanks to ongoing “uploading” payment to reclaim the costs of social programs at the provincial level, that money basically had to be redirected to make up for the discretionary funding shortfall, Watson said.

jobs were cut this year. The rest were eliminated previously, but were tracked in terms of dollars, meaning the jobs themselves remained on the books. Still, the last two years have marked the first time since 2002 that the city actually eliminated jobs to save money – $3.5 million this year. Many of those jobs were at the Nepean Equestrian Park, which the city decided to close in 2012. Office expenses for the

mayor and councillors will continue to be frozen. DEBT

The city’s debt level is now sitting at $1.4 billion and the mayor said that figure won’t be increasing this year. The debt represents around 10 per cent of the cost of the city’s $15 billion worth of capital assets. The city borrows money to build that kind of infrastructure in order to

spread the cost over the asset’s lifetime to ensure the people who are using it also pay for it. Servicing the city’s debt accounts for about five per cent of the city portion of a individual’s tax bill, the city treasurer said. Ottawa’s debt is the second lowest per capita debt ($1,537) compared to Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, the mayor said.

R0011609187_0913

EMC news – The City of Ottawa’s “stay the course” draft budget means the average homeowner in the urban area would pay an extra $67 on the municipal portion of their tax bill next year. It’s the smallest tax increase in six years and at 2.09 per cent, it falls below city council’s commitment to keep tax hikes at 2.5 per cent each year. As the mayor indicated before the budget was released, it’s a plan that mostly sees city services maintained and the continuation of existing projects, but not a lot of new spending. “There are many items contained in budget 2013 that will assist citizens in each and every ward and each and every neighbourhood right across this wonderful city,” Mayor Jim Watson said during his lengthy speech to council before tabling the budget. Community design plans promised for areas around future light rail stations would be funded to the tune of $300,000. Two new city plans approved last year – the Older Adult Plan and the Arts, Heritage and Culture Plan – will get $500,000 and $1 million respectively towards their implementation. The city plans to boost funding to fight the emerald ash borer by $975,000, bringing annual funding for pesticide treatments and replanting to $1.8 million. There is also money for 16 new crossing guards. After public consultations, city council is set to approve the budget on Nov. 28.

New audible crossing signals are proposed for Innes at Cleroux, Charlemagne/ Tompkins at Tenth Line and Innes just west of Orient Park. Pedestrian countdown signals will be added at Jeanne D’Arc and Des Eppinette, at Jeanne D’Arc and Belcourt and Blair at Oglivie.

SAVINGS

A lot of budget savings will continue to come from the Service Ottawa project, which aims to consolidate city services. In 2013, that will mean $8.8 million in savings from putting more services online, such as permit applications. City treasurer Marian Simulik applauded the city’s ability to slash another 139 full-time positions from its payroll, but later clarified that only 42 of the city’s 14,489

War Amps legacy continues with address label mailing

BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

Shenkman turns into Dragon’s Den Far left, Colton Holmes and far right, Zach Kirkpatrick-Bourbonniere from the 3018 Army Cadets CER33 based out of OrlÊans take on security roles during the OrlÊans Business Showcase with speaker David Chilton and chamber executive director Jamie Kwong McDonald. David Chilton is the new dragon on the television show The Dragon’s Den and author of the Wealthy Barber books.

EMC news - The War Amps begins its 2012 address label mailing to Ontario residents this week with the theme, The Legacy Continues. Shannon, a graduate of the War Amps child amputee program (CHAMP), describes how she became a part of this legacy at the age of 12 after losing her leg to cancer. “The War Amps was recommended to my family because they could provide ďŹ nancial assistance with artiďŹ cial limbs, but little did I know there was so much more to it than that,â€? Shannon said. “Attending my ďŹ rst seminar changed my life. Not only was I dealing with the difďŹ culties of being an amputee and learning to walk again, but I was self-conscious and rarely left home without wearing long pants.â€? Through Operation Legacy, Shannon, along with other Champs, passes on the

war amputees’ remembrance message to the younger generation. It was these same war amputees who realized many years ago that there was a need to assist Canadian children who were born missing limbs, or lost them due to accidents or medical causes. Because of their foresight, and with the public’s support, the legacy continues. Sent as a thank you to supporters of the War Amps key tag service, address labels are not just for envelopes. They can be used to identify items like books and for ďŹ lling out name and address information on forms. The War Amps receives no government grants. Its programs are possible solely through public support of the key tag and address label service. For more information, or to order address labels, visit waramps.ca or call toll-free 1 800 250-3030.

Smart development is planned development

F

or the most part, the suburbs have gotten off relatively easy as the city pushes for intensification – plans intended to prevent, or at least allay, urban sprawl. So when a developer comes forward with a proposal for a large-scale commercial development – a plan that allows for high density residential buildings – it makes no sense to throw up roadblocks. The Kanata Town Centre lands are a perfect fit for

high-density housing, says Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson. We couldn’t agree more. Urbandale Corp. is asking the city to rezone 10 hectares of land north of Highway 417 and east of the Kanata Centrum and is looking to create roughly 111,000 square metres of commercial space as well as hundreds of housing units. Last week, more than 80 members of the community packed a meeting room at

the Kanata Seniors Centre for the councillor’s monthly ward council meeting – many of them concerned about the Urbandale proposal. We can certainly sympathize. Over the past decade, communities across the city have been hit with a slew of spot rezoning requests from developers seeking permission to build highrises and midrises not in keeping with the various neighbourhoods’ character. For instance, a current plan

to build a midrise in Beaverbrook has many residents up in arms, saying the building doesn’t fit in with the community. One of the leaders of those opposing the Beaverbrook midrise, Bill Teron, has repeatedly suggested the Kanata Town Centre lands as a perfect spot for a midrise or highrise. That’s why the land was set aside for future retail, office and high-density development by planners with the former city of Kanata.

If not the Kanata Town Centre lands, where? The area will eventually have two Transitway stations on its doorstep, and runs along an eight-lane highway. If Kanata – or any other suburb – is to incorporate intensification and large-scale commercial development, this is the way to do it. If the city rejects proposals such as this it inflates the argument that people are NIMBYs whenever they oppose developments that don’t fit the

character of their neighbourhoods. Development has to go somewhere. Better it go where pipes, schools, bus routes, garbage collection and other city services already exist, so we don’t have to pay for more. This isn’t a rubber-stamp process – the development applications must keep in line with the area’s designated zoning. But going big next to a highway and transit is smart development.

COLUMN

A bridge too low CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

he other day there was a house moving down the Queensway, west to east, going slow, as houses do. That was a good thing because not much damage was done when the top part of the house couldn’t get under an overpass. Now, you might say: “What a foolish thing to drive a house down the Queensway without making sure about how tall it was and how high the overpasses were!” And I might say: “Well, at least they were trying, and least they were making the effort to get from one place to another.” Which brings us, inevitably, to how little the people who run this city are trying. There was a story last week about the central library. Library planners are proposing that there be a modernization, as opposed to a renovation — not a particularly big modernization, but one that will, in the inevitable words of someone, bring the library into the 21st century. Plans for something more ambitious were rejected, and we know why. There is next to no chance that the city will pony up the money. The same goes for the thrilling idea, widely discussed a few years ago, of building a brandnew library downtown. You’ll remember that this was seen as an exciting opportunity not only to re-energize the downtown but also to bring the library maybe even into the 22nd century. Proponents looked longingly at such examples as the Vancouver Public Library, which is a fine library, a great meeting place and an adornment to its downtown. We could have that here. Alas, no. A low bridge was glimpsed in the distance, the bridge of tight budgets and

grumpy voters. No way a new library was going to get under that one. And so, as with many projects that might benefit the city, the project never hit the road. You may also remember that one of the sites considered for the new library was the Government Conference Centre, the old railway station or, as the government likes to call it, Building Number 054533. Since 1966, when it ceased being a railway station, the building has mainly just sat there, playing host to the occasional event. It had a brief brush with fame in the ‘70s and ‘80s as the site for federal provincial conferences, but since then, nothing. To the federal government’s credit, it has not torn the building down and replaced it with a condo. Also to the government’s credit, has turned down proposals ranging from a sports hall of fame to an aquarium. But still, here’s a gorgeous historic building at the very heart of downtown Ottawa that simply demands to be put to some creative use and no one is doing it. There are cities that would salivate at the opportunity to take advantage of such a building, such a site. Ottawa is not one of them. This is why so little has happened here in recent years. Most development has been by default — the city saying yes to one condo builder after another. We will get a casino the same way — not because anybody particularly wants one but because not enough politicians have the heart to say no. Many will say our inertia on things such as the library is due to an absence of money. In part, perhaps, but it is also due to an absence of political gumption. Politicians at all levels are convinced that they will be punished by voters for thinking big, if thinking big means spending money and spending money means not keeping taxes low. Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s not. The idea hasn’t been tested for some time. Certainly people seem to be quite proud of the War Museum, Ottawa City Hall, the Shenkman Centre and other recent examples of thinking big. Wouldn’t it be worth a try again? The bridge may be higher than we think (measuring first).

Best wishes to columnist To the editor,

To the editor,

I just read Pat Trew’s column in the EMC and felt I had to write in. I have been making her recipes for years and have made them again and again. They were always easy to make and delicious. I often passed her recipes on to my friends and family.I am sorry to hear that she will no longer be writing her cooking column because of her health issues. Please wish her all the best from my family and tell her that our prayers are with her.

We just read the news that Pat Trew’s Food n’ Stuff will no longer appear in the Orléans EMC. This is sad news, especially since it is because of Pat’s illness. We always looked forward to seeing what recipe Pat had each week. We have saved many of them. We have 11 various bread machine recipes alone. We have not made every one yet, but our favourite is for Cottage Cheese Bread from May 2009. Please pass along our very best wishes to Pat Trew and we hope that she will be well again soon.

Pat Trew recipe Courtesy from dog treasured by reader owners requested Dear Pat,

I am so sorry to read your farewell this evening in the weekly EMC and to hear that you are undergoing treatment for lung cancer. I have truly enjoyed your column over the years and my favorite recipe is the one you wrote several years ago: New Potaoes Make the Best Potato Salad. I particularly like how you transformed simple ingredients into something really spectacular by paying atten-

tion to details (having new potatoes, letting the potatoes cool down before adding the mayonnaise and the importance of the mayonnaise). To me, this was the true signature of an artist. I use this recipe every year, when new crops of potatoes are available. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through this challenging time. Thank you again for years of fantastic recipes. I wish you well. Beatrice Mullington

Last Saturday we took our grandchildren aged six and four for a hike in the Queenswood Heights trails in old Orleans. It was a bright crisp day with the little ones eager to swish through the fallen leaves, listen for the chickadees amd chatter back to the squirrels. And then the dogs started coming: the majority off leash, several rushing at

“That was way to easy!”

the children, terrifying  them. “Sorry about that” from the owner does little to reduce the fear of dogs that has been reenforced in these little people, who have every right to be enjoying this public space. Why do so many dog owners refuse to obey the on-leash bylaws, acting as if the trails are their private property and putting others at risk? Lynda Munroe Orléans

Writer has right idea To the editor,

Re: Brynna Leslie column, “A national discussion,” Oct. 11. Brynna makes a compelling argument for the need to discuss abortion in Canada. There has been a lot of emotion expressed over the last 40 or so years on both sides but no real debate. I agree with Brynna; how unfortunate that Parliament voted down Stephen Woodworth’s motion to review the definition of a child as presently defined in Canadian law. This was not even to suggest a debate on abortion – but merely to update an archaic definition. What are we afraid of? To face the truth that a baby is the same being inside or outside

of the womb? There is no line drawn in the sand here – once a woman is pregnant, she is carrying a baby. A simple scientific fact. Easy to find in any biology text. And today some pretty amazing pictures can be viewed online of the active life of the baby in the womb. Does ignoring a fact make it go away? Of course not. But it makes it easier to pretend that it’s OK to kill that life. After all, it’s just “terminating a pregnancy.” It’s about time that we start to own up to what we’re doing to our youngest citizens in Canada. Liz Fennelly Orléans

Adoption is an Option for Children and Youth in Care

Your Community Newspaper

Keeping kids safe Kim Massé, second from right, receives thank her for all her hard work in the crossing guard program from Coun. Bob Monette, right. As part of National School Safety Week, the Ottawa Safety Council and Safer Roads Ottawa thanked adult school crossing guards in five wards across the city. Massé’s is responsible for two intersections: Prestwick at Des Epinettes and Watters Road at Charlemagne.

Last year, approximately 80 children and youth were adopted through the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO). What does this mean? It means that these children and youth are part of a family. It means they have a place to call home. It means they have a greater chance at success. It’s the beginning of a new adventure – a positive one.

Submitted

Adoption through CASO is referred to as a public adoption. Individuals interested in adopting are provided with access to training, support services pre and post adoption, as well as additional on-going assistance. CASO places a lot of importance on finding the best match for the children and youth in their care and welcome diversity in adoptive parents – including people who are single or partnered, from all cultural, racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds and are financially able to manage the additional family member(s). Most importantly, CASO looks for people who are willing to commit to a permanent lifetime relationship with a child or youth. The children at CASO range in age from infants to teens and have been placed in care for a variety of reasons. The majority of these children however, are school aged or in a sibling group. No matter what age a child, everyone deserves a family – a place to call home. If you or someone you know may be interested in adopting, please call the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa at 613-742-1620 ext 2 or visit www.casott. on.ca.

Columnist on a homework strike

I

f you’ll forgive me, I haven’t slept much in the past few weeks. My three-month-old, like her siblings before her, is consistently sleeping in 10-hour stretches. My six-year-old, on the other hand, is suffering night terrors – a condition that affects approximately six per cent of kids in his age group, thought to be caused by stress and fatigue. When he’s thrashing about uncontrollably in the dark, he’s screaming, “I’m not doing the homework. No! No! No!” Now, I don’t know if this is the only thing that’s playing on his little unconscious brain. Six-year-olds have a lot on their minds these days. But certainly, the daily battles over his one hour of Grade 1 homework is having some negative impact. Last week, I wrote about some of the creative ways we were going to tackle homework. We have failed. We’re as stressed and frustrated as ever about homework. And apparently, we’re not the only ones. The value of homework has been widely debated in the media these past few weeks, in the wake of French President Francois Hollande’s call for a nationwide ban on the practice. The head of the French Parents Association, Jean-Jacques Hazon, summed it up well in a clip interpreted on CBC’s The

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse Current on Oct. 18: “Forcing (children) to read the same page over and over is useless and it puts inherently fragile children under enormous pressure. It stresses kids out, turning them against school forever, and they bring all that stress home.” A 2008 study out of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto appears to affirm these assertions. The authors of “Homework Realities: A Canadian Study of Parental Opinions and Attitudes” surveyed more than 1,000 caregivers of 2,072 children across the province. The majority of parents surveyed said they believe homework puts undue stress on children and families, takes away from family time and forces kids to be sitting still when they should be out running around. Moreover, the study found that the more homework children are exposed to in the early years of school, the less likely they are to approach it with enthusiasm in later grades. To its credit, in the wake of

the study and another similar study of teachers’ opinions on homework, The Toronto District School Board all but banned homework for primary school children, excepting special projects and daily reading. Other school boards have mandated what is widely known in education circles as “the 10minute rule” – take the grade level of the child and multiply it by 10. bad calculations

But timing out the homework may not be the only answer. One of the problems with the 10-minute rule, as noted by one of the study’s authors, Dr. Linda Cameron, on CBC’s The Current last month, is that teachers frequently miscalculate the time it takes various children to do the assigned homework. “We had parents saying, as young as kindergarten, children were taking hours to do what was assigned,” Cameron told the CBC. “It’s really not necessarily a fair or a good rule.”

And as author Annie Murphy Paul noted in The New York Times last year, “the quantity of students’ homework is a lot less important than its quality.” True. And perhaps this is why I don’t necessarily support an all-out ban on homework. I’ve witnessed homework that works well and homework that doesn’t. As proponents of the practice suggest, homework that is well-designed and timelimited can have a positive impact on autonomous learning and the development of time management skills. Plus, parental involvement in school work helps children to see that what goes on in the classroom all day is important and valid in everyday life. But my six-year-old? Despite his love of literature and the fact that he is among the strongest readers in his class, it takes him an hour to read through the list of monosyllables each evening. (And probably another half-hour to whine about it). When asked what he’d rather be doing, he answers “read real books.” He simply has too much homework. And in my mind, it doesn’t meet the quality standard. So we’re officially on a homework strike. OK, maybe it’s more of a “work-to-rule.” He reads 10 minutes of monosyllables per day and then we close the homework books and open the real ones.

Feds support Special Olympics Canada Be a Fan Day honours athletes EMC news - The federal government recently announced a contribution to Special Olympics Canada on the occasion of Special Olympics Canada’s Be a Fan Day. “Today, I am pleased to join our inspiring Special Olympians in celebrating the first Be a Fan Day,” said Minister of State (Sport) Bal Gosal. “As a proud supporter of Special Olympics Canada, our government is pleased to help spread awareness of athletes with intellectual disabilities and to recognize the outpouring of community support for these amazing role models. I encourage all Canadians to show their support for this wonderful campaign.” Special Olympics Canada is a national not-for-profit organization that provides sport training and competition opportunities for more than

35,000 athletes of all ages and abilities with an intellectual disability. They are supported by 17,000 volunteers, including more than 13,500 trained coaches. Be a Fan Day is a nationwide celebration to honour achievements of the past while igniting the flame of hope for the future, to create awareness, to recruit new athletes, coaches and volunteers, and to celebrate the supporters. connections

It also recognizes the important and special relationship that Special Olympics Canada has with the law enforcement community. The federal government is the single largest contributor to sport in Canada and supports participation and excellence from playground to podium. A contribution of approximately $2.9 million was approved for 2012-13 to support Special Olympics Canada through Sport Canada’s sport support program.

Ronny tries his ears at growing potatoes

M

other had a thing about clean ears and necks. We never once went out the door in the morning, on the way to the Northcote School, that we weren’t subjected to a close look at both. Heaven forbid that we might get run over with a horse and buggy, end up at old Doctor Murphy’s or the Renfrew Hospital, and have someone see that we had dirty ears and necks! Every night before we went to bed, each of us had to give ourselves a sponge bath. And we had to pay special attention to our ears and necks, knowing full well they would be scrutinized the next morning. We pretty much ignored the rest of our bodies, since it wasn’t likely Mother would be examining us after we were fully dressed. My sister Audrey said she was quite sure we had the cleanest ears and necks in the entire Renfrew County. One year, the Lapointe cousins were again with us well into the fall, and Father said he doubted very much if Uncle Herby had any intention of taking them back to Montreal before the spring thaw! Ronny was a force to be reckoned with, while his younger brother Terry was as meek as a mouse. And any time Uncle

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories Herby and Aunt Helen could send the boys out to the farm at Northcote, they did. It didn’t matter if it was the middle of the winter, or during the dead heat of the summer, we never knew when to expect the two

If you were of school age, you just went. Terry was too young, even for primer book, so he stayed home with Mother. But Ronny, close to my age, made the three-and-half-mile

Well, one morning Mother took a hold of one of his ears, and said, “Ronny Lapointe, you could plant potatoes in there.” cousins. I was always thrilled when they came to stay. They added much to our quiet life out there on the farm, and I loved when the cousins were with us, even though Ronny was constantly in trouble, if not at home, at Northcote School. Back then, it didn’t seem to matter where you came from, or why you were in the school.

trek with the rest of us. All that was needed was an extra bag of lunch. Well, Ronny hated having his ears examined every morning. He didn’t complain about the neck, but for some reason he went through a routine that never varied when Mother was ready for her examination. He would bend his head onto his shoulder as far as it would go,

screw up his face, and let out a howl much like our old Collie dog did when he thought something was attacking our hen house. Mother gave him no sympathy. He also didn’t have much use for the nightly sponge bath. And I know for a fact he often just wet the face cloth and put it right back in the basin of water, stood for as long as he thought a reasonable time, and announced he was finished. And of course, the ears were rarely touched. Well, one morning Mother took a hold of one of his ears, and said, “Ronny Lapointe, you could plant potatoes in there. Get over to the bench and I’ll give those ears a clean out.” Well, for some reason that morning, Ronny took his punishment like a man. But I could tell the wheels were turning in his head. There was no howling, and he didn’t even bend his head to his shoulder when the other ear was being washed. Something was up with Ronny, I could tell. He was deep in thought. The next morning, we all lined up for the usual examination. Mother thought, since Audrey was in Senior Fourth, she didn’t have to have her ears and neck examined. She was old enough and quite capable of looking after her own clean-

liness. I couldn’t wait until I reached that magic age. Well, then it was Ronny’s turn. He stood ramrod straight – again, very unusual for Ronny. Mother bent to have a look. She got close to his ears and then hauled him over to the window so she could get a better view. “Ronny Lapointe! What have you got in your ears?” Ronny looked up at Mother and said, “Aunty, you said yesterday I could plant potatoes in my ears. Well, I thought I could maybe help it along if I put a bit of gravel in there. I sure would like to see a potato grow in my ears. Boy, wouldn’t I have something to tell the guys back in Montreal when I get home.” I had no idea if he thought seriously that he could plant a potato in his ear by putting in a bit of dirt, or if, as usual, he just wanted to cause a bit of commotion in that old log house out in Renfrew County! Father was just coming in the back door from the barns and he saw the entire performance. He lit his pipe, squinted his eyes half shut, as he always did when he saw or heard something he couldn’t believe, and said, “It’s going to be a long winter. I’ll tell you, I’m afraid they’ll be here until the spring run-off!”

Inquest announced into toddler’s drowning EMC news - The coroner’s office has announced that there will be an inquest held into Jérémie Audette’s death. Jérémie died on July 28, 2010, in Orléans of accidental drowning in a background pool while under the supervision of an unlicenced daycare provider. The inquest was announced by Dr. Roger Skinner, the regional supervising coroner for the east region on Oct. 25. The inquest will look at the circumstances surrounding his death and make recommendations aimed to prevent similar deaths from happening. “We’re hoping that some laws will be changed, that’s the reason we pushed for the inquest,” said Melanie Audette, Jérémie’s mother, at a splash pad renaming for Jérémie this past summer. The Audette family had encouraged an inquest into the toddler’s death. The inquest is expected to last 15 days and hear from 23 witnesses. It will begin on Nov. 26 at the courthouse at 161 Elgin St.

ith winter just around the corner, the reality of rising heating bills will be starting to set in. Energy-efficient solar blinds not only reduce these bills, but also block out harmful UV rays and keep the home comfortably Warm on cold winter days. Krumpers Solar Blinds sells and manufactures climate control solar window blinds. “The blinds protect you from UV rays, cold infiltration and heat loss in the winter, and heat gain in the summer, saving you money. Once the blinds are on glass, they are transparent,” says Diana Livshits, principal of Krumpers Solar Blinds. “You can enjoy the view, and have control over your home’s temperature.” Windows are the weakest link in any building, causing the greatest source of heat loss and heat gain.

Krumpers

Solar Blinds

are a unique Canadian product, which allow for unobstructed view while the dual modular design allows for winter/ summer climate control. The ability to reverse the system with the season makes Krumpers Solar Blinds unique, says Diana Livshits, Our blinds have 3rd party independent testing that demonstrates a reduction in heating and cooling costs by up to 41%. “Most product allow

in some cold air, as well as heat loss. Krumpers blinds have three layers. Between the summer and winter sides you have a solid but clear film, which allows you to see outside while also keeping out winter drafts and actually generating heat in the winter while in the summer they reflect 72% of the heat back outside.” The Krumpers Web site has many testimonials from satisfied clients.

“My apartment is 100 per cent heated with electricity and during the coldest months of the year my usage dropped by 45 per cent! Above and beyond the energy savings, the ongoing temperature comfort during cold periods and during heat waves is worth every penny of this truly “climate control” solution,” writes one client. The blinds cost $32 per square foot, including installation,

and have a five-year fulll warranty. The blinds require only a wet cloth to wipe off dust and dirt. Krumpers also has engineered solutions for skylights. “People just aren’t

aware of the options and how financially prudent solar solutions can be,” Diana Livshits says. Diana Livshits of Krumpers Solar Blinds

National poppy campaign launches Michelle Nash

Michelle Nash/Metroland

Gov. Gen. David Johnson officially launched the 2012 National Poppy Campaign at Rideau Hall on Oct. 24.

out poppies to some of the Second World War veterans in attendance, taking the time to speak to each person individually. The governor general also encouraged everyone to visit the national honours exhibit, located at 90 Wellington St. The exhibit, From Far and Wide: Honouring Great Canadians opened in May and showcases Canada’s national honours and the contributions of Canadians. Sharon, Murray and Moore all received a poppy at the launch, with poppies becoming available to the general public beginning on Oct. 26. The symbol of the poppy was adopted in 1921 recognizing the 117,000 Canadian men and women who gave their lives during military service around the world.

EMC news - A symbol of remembrance for more than 90 years now, the 2012 national poppy campaign is officially underway. The launch of the 2012 National Poppy Campaign took place on Oct. 24 at Rideau Hall. Gov. Gen. David Johnson and his wife Sharon were joined by the Royal Canadian Legion’s grand president Larry Murray and the dominion president of the Royal Canadian Legion Gordon Moore. “I find it hard to imagine a more appropriate cause,” Johnson said. Pinned with the first poppy of the campaign, Johnson said the campaign renews the solemn bond with veterans, past and present. “This small, scarlet flower speaks volumes about the sacrifices of Canadian soldiers and veterans, and it starkly reminds us of the tragedy of war,” Johnson said. Murray, who thanked the Governor General for his ongoing support for the Canadian Forces, and his personal engagement in the campaign, noted the importance of wearing a single poppy over one’s heart. “Whether World War 1, World War 2, Korea, the many peace support operations since including the war in Afghanistan and the recent conflict in Libya, survivors and fallen heroes alike may take comfort in our efforts to remember,” Murray said. The event welcomed veterans from the Second World War and the Korean and Afghanistan wars. “That the First World War wasn’t, in fact, the last war speaks to the fact that our veterans and their loved ones have continued to make sacrifices in the decades since,” he said. “In war and in peacetime, members of the Canadian Forces have been steadfast in their service to our country.” Johnson personally welcomed and handed

Meet Pete! This neutered male, white Maltese is about six years old. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on October 10. Pete loves to take daily walks around the neighbourhood and would benefit from regular trips to the groomers!

ID#A147044

He will need an experienced owner to show him the ropes, and to make sure he knows he doesn’t rule the world! Pete would not be well-suited to apartment living, as he likes to share his opinions on many subjects, which the neighbors may not wish to hear.

If you think you have found your next companion animal in the Adoption Centre, please contact our Customer Service Supervisor at 613-725-3166 or cssupervisor@ottawahumane.ca. The Ottawa Humane Society Adoption Centre is open weekdays 11:00 – 7:00 and Saturdays 10:00 – 5:00.

posted within 24 hours of admission, and the site is updated every hour. We will do our best to help with your search, but as the owner, you are ultimately responsible to look for and identify your pet. Make sure you have up-to-date photos of your pet so that you can put up posters in your neighbourhood. Make fliers that include the lost date, description and any unique markings, a picture and your phone number – a reward motivates people!

Be specific when describing your lost pet.

Example: A large 6-year-old domestic short-haired cat, all black with white paws, neutered and declawed, friendly with people, answers to the name Newton Or: A 3-year-old medium size dog, 25 to 30 pounds, black and tan, shepherd mix, female, spayed, a little timid – answers to the name Shadow. Place a lost ad in the newspaper and check the Found section. Have your pet microchipped so that it can be scanned at a local vet clinic or at the OHS, and make sure to update microchip information if you move. Keep identification tags up-to-date with your phone number and address. A City of Ottawa License will also help identify your pet.

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

“My name is Rayne and I’m a very spoiled 6 year old female German Shepherd. I love to go for long trail walks, sleep on the new couch, and play with our new kitten named Hunter. A good day for me includes lots of running with my buddies Dawg and Storm, homemade peanut butter treats, and a belly rub. I’m a happy dog for sure!”

Sometimes our furry friends escape, but there are steps to take to ensure this scary and stressful time goes smoothly and your pet gets home safe and sound as quickly as possible. The most important thing to do if you have lost an animal is to fill out a Lost Animal Report with the Ottawa Humane Society at www.ottawahumane.ca, and email us a photo of your pet. The OHS receives thousands of lost animals every year. Submitting a complete Lost report will help us to quickly identify your pet, if it is brought to us. Submitting a Lost Animal Report is not a substitute for visiting the municipal animal shelter to look for your animal – visit the OHS at 245 West Hunt Club Road to check if your pet has been brought in. Be aware that your animal could be almost anywhere. Exploring dogs have travelled as much as 20 kilometers in a single day. Do not limit your search to your neighbourhood only. If you have lost your cat, search the area at dusk and dawn – be cautious around cars and garbage cans. Inform your neighbours and ask them not to feed your cat. Placing kitty litter outside may be enough to entice a nervous or shy cat to return to a site that smells familiar. Photos of most stray cats recently admitted to our shelter are posted online at www.ottawahumane.ca. Pictures are

Blind Ambition premiers Brier Dodge

Blind Ambition will hopefully raise awareness about Frost’s sport in the community. “It was very touching and it was obviously a good response,” Frost said. He said Blind Ambition deals with his training, his accomplishments and how he’s overcome hurdles. It’s been a long road for Frost because he was diagnosed later in life, after starting a family and a career. In his 20s, he never expected to become an advocate for visually-impaired athletes – but he’s now a two-time world champion and active supporter of Paralympic sports. “It’s a lifetime journey for a lot of disabled (athletes),” Frost said, about the drive to increase support for Paralympic sports.” Blind Ambition is currently on sale for $10 by emailing Kristine Simpson at kristine. jh.simpson@gmail.com.

Playoff time is here for national capital football as the bantam Orléans Bengals take on the Bell Warriors on Oct. 21 at Bell High School. Above, a Bengal player jumps to block a pass during the quarter-final game, as the Bengals fell to the Warriors.

EMC news - A recent showing of a documentary entitled Blind Ambition about Kevin Frost’s journey as a blind and deaf speed skater raised over $20,000. Frost, from Orléans, was in the documentary produced by Pat Decelles that was shown on Oct. 18 at the Mayfair Theatre in Orléans. Frost has Usher syndrome, which means he has limited sight and hearing. He’s been a long-time advocate of recognizing visually-impaired speed skating as a sanctioned sport so that competing athletes can receive funding. The funds raised at the Mayfair will go towards other athletes working towards the same thing; and financially support them when national funding can’t. “It’s going to be geared towards visually-impaired speed

skaters across Canada who would like to get involved and compete at an international level,” Frost said. “This will allow those athletes to compete without having to look for sponsors.” Frost said he was touched by the standing ovation at the end of the film. Frost hopes that the availability of funds will encourage skaters competing with ablebodied athletes to disclose their visual impairments. He said that some athletes may be afraid coaches or meet directors could worry about safety and restrict them from competing. “I’ll do what I’m doing until they can come out of the shadows,” he said. “They gave me a chance and I did okay.” Frost is one of the best visually-impaired speed skaters in the world, but is still pushing for the International Paralympic Committee to sanction the sport.
