EMC news - David Bertschi, the Liberal candidate for Ottawa-Orléans, was scheduled to announce his candidacy for federal party leadership on Nov. 7, with little surprise to those who have followed his political career. While the official leadership race doesn’t begin until Nov. 14, Bertschi had already established a grassroots exploratory committee to assess running and made visits throughout British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Quebec and other provinces during what he called a cross-country listening tour. The grassroots committee has been in full-swing since the spring, with tour stops, a website and a video promoting the Team Bertschi campaign. Bertschi didn’t win in the last federal election, losing to Conservative incumbent Royal Galipeau, but he’s confident his resume, while atypical for a federal leadership candidate, marks him as a qualified candidate for the job. The lawyer is a founding partner at Bertschi Orth Smith LLP in Orléans, and served as a Crown prosecutor and prosecutor for the Ontario Human Rights Commission, among a variety of law and teaching positions and work with legal aid. He said that the experience has been similar to politics, because he’s spent years representing people. “The switch to politics isn’t that significant,” he said. Bertschi would prefer to see less “professional-politicians” and more who have lived comparable lives to the average Canadian. “They come to the bubble at a young age, and they never See LAWYER on Page 3

Anti-abortion website sparks cancellation of high school trip Students won’t see American election campaign in action Brier Dodge

EMC news - After an anti-abortion website published an article scolding two Orléans Catholic high schools for sending students to a Barack Obama campaign event in Ohio, the field trip has been cancelled. Students from St. Peter High School and St. Matthew Catholic High School were scheduled to attend several campaign events from Nov. 3 to 7 in the final days leading up to the 2012 U.S. election. The field trip included lectures at Youngstown State University and a

chance to observe a voter-registration event organized by the Obama campaign. “The purpose of the trip was to engage our students in the political process,” said St. Peter principal Norma McDonald. “When all of the negative comments started to come in, it had been taken in a very different direction.” The American website LifeSiteNews. com criticized Scott Searle, one of the teachers organizing the field trip, for his past affiliation with the Obama campaign. The website said that an Orléans mother was concerned that a Catholic school trip would support a pro-choice presidential candidate. After anonymous comments started piling up, McDonald was made aware of

the negative attention the trip was receiving. She said she consulted with Searle and decided the best decision would be to cancel the trip. Students were told the trip was cancelled on Nov. 1. “It became more about a campaign platform, it became about President Obama’s ideologies,” she said. “I realized it was at a point that it had created a lot of anxiety, and I would certainly never want me students or my staff to be subjected to negativity and criticism.” The website article received many comments from both anonymous posters condemning the trip, and St. Peter students voicing their disappointment for the cancellation and support for Searle. Students quickly took to Twitter, using

Grocery bus benefits east-end seniors Brier Dodge


Grocery Bus co-ordinator Martin Bazinet of the Eastern Ontario Resource Centre presents Metro Orléans staff with a plaque to thank them for their kind treatment of the seniors who take the grocery bus every two weeks. The bus runs two Fridays a month, and includes a social coffee and donut at the end. At the Orléans Metro, there are regular staff who have gotten to know the group very well. “They’re always gentle and patient with us and they get to have that social thing. For them, it’s a happening place,” Bazinet said. He said that Metro also opens a dedicated cash register line for the bus riders, so shoppers don’t have to feel

pressured if they are slower than other customers. To qualify for the programs, seniors just need to be able to walk and board the steps to the bus. Eventually, Bazinet would like to see additional routes added. Bazinet can be reached in his office on Tenth Line Road at 613-741-6025, ext. 326. “If they want to join in, just give us a call and we’ll work hard to make it happen,” he said.

the hashtag #teamsearle to comment on the issue. Paige Hanson, a St. Peter graduate and now a first-year St. Francis Xavier University student, said that she has participated in two of Searle’s annual class trips to the United States, once to Boston and once to Washington. Hanson, an international development student, said the trips were educational. “Mr. Searle is a phenomenal teacher, who really is in it for the kids,” she said. “Yes, he has his views on politics, but don’t we all? Not in a million years would he ever try to brain wash kids.” Hanson said the school

shouldn’t have cancelled the trip based on a complaint from an anonymous parent to a pro-life website. “The whole fact that Obama’s pro-abortion (stance was the reason to cancel the trip) is pretty stupid in the sense that the trip has nothing to do with that,” she said. Students at St. Peter wore blue, the school’s colour, on Nov. 2 to show support for the #teamsearle movement. On Twitter, they unanimously voiced support for the teacher. “The best way to learn is to visualize and see it in action!!! #teamsearle,,” commented Twitter user @JoeyMartello. “I am SO enraged that nar-

row minded ignorance has interfered in the pursuit of knowledge and life experiences. #teamsearle” tweeted user @KTPisoutthere. McDonald said that students were clearly disappointed, but had understood the explanation. “To cancel something so close to the date is difficult, but it’s been incredible that they do support my decision,” McDonald said. “On the one hand, they’re disappointed where this ended up, but on the other hand, they are saying they do understand why.” “I believe the mother who voiced her opinion ruined an innocent and informational trip for the many excited students,” said Hanson.

EMC news - An Eastern Ontario Resource Centre program helps seniors in the community with their grocery shopping. Every two weeks, a bus heads out on one of the three routes to pick up seniors at their homes and bring them to the grocery store. The three routes are in Orléans, Blackburn Hamlet and Gloucester, and each go to a nearby grocery store. Volunteers are on the bus, and while the program cannot accommodate those with mobility challenges, they help within the grocery store to track down the right products. Costs vary based on individual subsidies qualified for, but the maximum cost per trip is $9, which includes grocery delivery to individual homes for the Orléans and Gloucester routes. The Orléans route takes shoppers to the Metro at Innes and Tenth Line Roads. Co-ordinator Martin Bazinet said all of the buses have space for additional seniors who wish to join the trips. Most of the shoppers either live at home alone without a vehicle or are uncomfortable driving in the winter. “So they hop on the bus on any given week and we have volunteers on the bus that help them while they’re shopping,” he said.

Lawyer isn’t a career-politican Continued from front

leave it,” he said about those who venture into politics from youth onwards. He grew up in a modest household with a single mother in Ste. Adèle, Que., a town outside of Montreal that had a 2,500 population. “She really showed me what it means to be prudent,” he said, adding that he had to learn to save in order to put himself through school. “That shows that determination. I lived liked normal families.” He said it gave him a chance to eventually live in a variety of cultures – rural and urban, and French and English, eventually moving to Ottawa. He came to Ottawa in 1977 to attend Carleton University, and later studied at the University of Windsor before settling in Orléans. It was easier then for a young professional to settle into a community, pay off student debt and buy property – one of the issues he’s passionate about. Bertschi has clear issues with the transition to adult life the current generation is facing – such as his six children from his blended family, who have to make the university to working world transition. “It’s a different world now,” he said, adding that students hear education is a guarantee to succeed in life – but struggle to pay off postsecondary debts. That’s one of the reasons that he believes heavily in job creation, especially investments in small and medium

businesses. As a partner in a local law firm, he’s created jobs in the community in a smaller market. He’s been behind the Liberal party for years. “We’re a balanced party, we believe in fiscal responsibility, and looking after the vulnerable,” he said. He gained experience running as the Ottawa-Orléans candidate in the last federal election, and has decided to keep the momentum rolling. But he’ll be facing off against some big players in the leadership race. His biggest challenge is

the table, with a wide-range of work experience behind him. And while he doesn’t have the typical background for a politician, his work history is relatable he said – for example, he’s been trained as a professional mediator, and done a laundry list of pro-bono work for a diverse group of clients. And while it’s definitely not the traditional route for a candidate running for federal leadership, he thinks it could be just the change that the country needs.

Councillor Steve Desroches; Bryce Conrad, Hydro Ottawa President and CEO; and Mayor Jim Watson congratulate bursary recipients Faduma Hassan and Ahmad Hussein.

Hydro Ottawa presented bursaries of $500 each to two deserving youths at the 10th Anniversary Breakfast of the Ottawa Community Housing Corporation on October 26. The Youth Futures bursaries help youth living in low-income communities to attend post-secondary education and pay for books and tuition. “As a dedicated community citizen with roots that stretch back more than 130 years, Hydro Ottawa strongly believes in investing in our city and the development of its people,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa, who attended the breakfast. “I am honoured to make this contribution to the futures of two young people with lots of promise.” The Youth Futures bursaries sponsored by Hydro Ottawa were awarded to Faduma Hassan and Ahmad Hussein, two community volunteers who are first-generation post-secondary students. “I’d like to thank Hydro Ottawa for this opportunity. I come from a low-income family and this helps me reach my goals,” said Ahmad Hussein, a Grade 12 student at the Ottawa Islamic School who plans to pursue nanoscience at Carleton University.

EMC news - Ottawa’s most creative literary talents gathered at the Shenkman Arts Centre on Oct. 24 to hand out the 2012 awards for the city’s best books. The 2012 Ottawa Book Awards were given for English fiction, English nonfiction and French fiction. There was no non-fiction French award given this year. The event was MC-ed by Charlotte Gray, an Ottawa biographer and historian, and Martin Vanasse from Radio-Canada. Mayor Jim Watson and Coun. Shad Qadri presented the awards. “Tonight we shine the spotlight on a vibrant, bilingual, literary community,” Watson said. “We don’t have to look far to find world-class talent.” The English fiction award was present-

ed to Centretown author Jamison Findlay for his book The Summer of Permanent Wants. The book is about an 11-year-old girl who loses her voice and sets off with her grandmother on a trip down the Rideau Canal in a boat, which is also a bookstore. “When I consider the roster of talent, I was totally overwhelmed,” Findlay said. “It feels really good to be recognized.” The award for French fiction went to an author from Beacon Hill, Estelle Beauchamp. Beauchamp was honoured for her book Un soufflé venu de loin, which has also won a provincial Trillium Book Award. For English non-fiction, the list of authors and their credentials was impressive, ranging from Robert E. Fowler, who was foreign policy adviser to prime

ministers Trudeau, Turner and Mulroney, to Craig Oliver, the chief parliamentary correspondent for CTV. The 2012 English non-fiction Book Award went to Ruth B. Phillips for Museum Pieces: Toward the Indigenization of Canadian Museums. “(This is) owed to a great extent, to me living for 40 years in this city,” she said. “This is a museum city; it has a remarkable combination.” The Archibald Lampman Award for Poetry was also presented by Chris Jennings from the Arc Poetry Society to Michael Blouin for Wore Down Trust. The winners were chosen by a group of three jurors for each category and each finalist received a cash prize. “They bring words to life for the residents of Ottawa and worldwide,” Watson said.

St. Clare students hear anti-bullying message from Trudeau Brier Dodge

EMC news - St. Clare Catholic School students got an important lesson from MP Justin Trudeau on Nov. 1 as they kicked off their anti-bullying month. Trudeau talked to the students about his own experiences with bullying, growing up in Ottawa and gave advice on how to deal with bullies. He told students that sometimes people pick on one another to make themselves feel better. “You all know someone who’s maybe a little small, or not as good at sports,� he said. “It’s important not to push someone down, but help them stand up.� Trudeau said that growing up in Ottawa as the son of a prime minister meant he wasn’t always treated the same as other children while attending Rockcliffe Public School. Some of the students had parents who didn’t agree with the senior Trudeau’s politics, and the students would

take it out on the school-aged Trudeau. “When I was your age, my dad was the prime minister of Canada,� he said. “We lived in a big house down the street.� Students were impressed to hear that his childhood house at 24 Sussex Dr. had 13 bathrooms. “But that didn’t make me any better than any of my friends,� he said. Trudeau said he felt comfortable in front of the students, as he worked as a teacher before entering politics. “Now I work in a job that has some people be mean to me,� he told the students. He also said that he had to be careful to talk with his son, Xavier, 5, because he is bigger than most of the other kids his age. He faced some tough questions from the junior kindergarten to Grade 6 students. They asked about him being picked on, if his children ever got picked on, and if he was ever a bully himself. “But what do you do if you want to stop being friends with someone because they’re a

ter intense bullying. Trudeau told the students that she was bullied so much, she killed herself. “She got teased so much that she did something absolutely terrible,� he said. The school will be running anti-bullying activities

throughout November, including cards that students can ďŹ ll out to report bullying or acts of kindness. “For us to be happy, it’s not what we get from the world,â€? Trudeau said. “It’s how you look at being nice and kind and just to each other.â€?

Your Community Newspaper City Councillor Cumberland LEST WE FORGET Do three other words mean more to the social fabric of our nation while aptly paying homage to the all too often unnamed heroes and heroines          from us? For me, Remembrance Day, like most days when we honour our veterans, has me thankful for so many reasons, including those of a personal nature. As a child, one of my favourite activities was prodding my grandparents into telling me stories about World War II and how Canada became a great nation and defender of freedom. These stories were more valuable to me than any          and love of history and of our country. However, as an adult, when my brother was deployed to Afghanistan, this had a profound effect on me, as well. Despite being a voracious news follower and supporter of our troops, the mere fact that my younger brother was in a combat zone drove home what so many families endure: the pride that a family member is putting their life on the line for their country and freedom, while at the same time, the low of uncertainty every single time a casualty is reported.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new electronic passport was unveiled at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau last week. Ottawa-OrlĂŠans MP Royal Galipeau and Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird attended a press conference on Oct. 26 announcing the launch of the ePassport at the museum, formerly known as the Museum of Civilization. The ePassport will be issued in the spring, and will include an electronic chip that will hold the same information provided on the second page of the printed passport, excluding signature. The passports will be available for a fiveyear or 10-year passport for adults, with childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passports issued for a five-year maximum. The passports will be available to everyone in the summer. Passport Canada began an ePassport pilot project for diplomatic and special passports in 2009. The passport includes a range of historic Canadian images, from Samuel de Champlain to the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. And as for Ottawa-specific images, Samuel de Champlain is featured in the form of a statue at Nepean Point. It also includes a replica of Robert Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fathers of Confederation which used to hang in Centre Block

Now that my brother has been home for some time, my son gets a kick out of seeing his uncle in uniform comparing it to the ones worn by his            guy or a bad guy. Not surprisingly, the names, Vimy, Dieppe, Juno are all too familiar with my son. I would be remiss if I did not say he has a very hard time saying Passchendaele.

Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic growth strategy on wrong track


he mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest bid to boost the local economy falls short in scope and runs the risk of at least being perceived as favouring certain businesses over others. During an event hosted last week by Mayor Jim Watson, a program called the Capital Investment Track was announced. Watson said the program would see the city provide assistance to business initiatives based on the potential to create at least

100 â&#x20AC;&#x153;quality â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well-paying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; private sector jobs.â&#x20AC;? Economic development staff would help shepherd these projects through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regulatory and administrative regime, making them the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priority. This program, while not an inherently bad idea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aimed at attracting investment and creating jobs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; puts the city in the position where it is picking and choosing what sorts of investment comes to Ottawa. On top

of the 100-job threshold, applicants from the life sciences, photonics, wireless, clean technology, aerospace, defence, film and television production, digital media and tourism sectors would also be considered for the Capital Investment Track. While this might appear to apply to a significant number of opportunities, in fact these employers represent a small fraction of the overall economy. Businesses with 100 or more people on the payroll

represent only 2.5 per cent of all employers in Ontario. In addition, with the exception of the tourism industry, the list of favoured sectors represents only a small slice of the total number of employers in the province and the types of jobs created would favour those with specialized experience and education. This means the city is offering to cut red tape for a group of businesses, including larger, better-financed firms, that are less likely to

need help navigating city hall than a business that employs four people, for example. Such small businesses represent more than 55 per cent of all employers in the province, and are often financed through the personal savings of the business owner. If the city truly wanted to attract investment, it would focus its efforts on cutting red tape for all types of businesses. This would maximize the potential number of jobs that could be created in

the city and would ensure opportunities are generated for residents from all walks of life, not just the highly educated. The spirit of the Capital Investment Track program is in the right place: helping to grow and diversify the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy, which will in turn provide jobs as the federal government scales back its civil servant workforce. But the program isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t playing fair when it comes to making Ottawa a more attractive destination for investment. Everyone should have an equal opportunity to set up or expand their shop in this city.


The calm before our storm CHARLES GORDON Funny Town


ere in the capital, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shaking our heads over how lightly we were touched by hurricane Sandy and its lengthy aftermath. What did we get? A little rain, a bit of wind. And how much do you want to bet that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all thinking: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to pay for it when winter comes.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fatalistic Canadian way of looking at it. If the weather spares us one day, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to whack us the next. And just to add an extra dimension, an extra level of unease, remember how easy last winter was? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get it, for sure. When I was a youngish writer at the Citizen, we used to scoff at a succession of editors and publishers who insisted that the paper feature a weather story prominently almost every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How could the weather be news?â&#x20AC;? we wondered. Weather was just, well, weather. Turns out we were wrong. Even in those days readers were interested in weather and today there is much more weather to be interested in and it is more than a question of whether Friday will be a good day to play golf. Weather touches us in a way that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always like. We used to think that severe weather was fun. Nothing like a good storm to watch through the window or maybe even run around outside in for a while. After the ice storm of 1998 and the big winds of 2011, not to mention a couple of rather small but rather scary earthquakes, we know that much of the fun has gone out of such events. Given this, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise that people are

paying more attention to the weather than they used to. They are encouraged in this by the news media, particularly all-news television, which have made the weather a large percentage of the news conversation even when there is no storm happening. Even a storm that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happened yet is news. The storm might be coming, destruction is threatened. There is a weather watch, a weather warning, a red swirl on a map and it could, maybe, affect you. The news media have learned that the story about the impending storm can have great value, even if the storm itself never materializes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of excitement in talking about the damage and devastation that might occur, great visuals in putting reporters in storm gear in front of the cameras in places where the storm hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arrived yet and if the storm never arrives, well, it was exciting, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? The problem with this kind of coverage is that people get used to it, come to believe that any storm warnings are exaggerated. The media cry wolf. Who knows, it may be that some of the people who were victims of Sandy were outside because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the storm could be as bad as the media said it would be. In the United States, the discussion about the storm quickly shifted to a discussion about the electoral politics of the storm, but not about climate change, which nobody wanted to talk about in an election year. Maybe now that the two storms, the real one and the political one, have died down, the discussion about climate change can begin again. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overdue. Many experts are saying that we are going to be seeing a lot more of this kind of weather. Many experts also say that our society can do something to reduce that likelihood by changing some aspects of our behaviour. How to bring that about will not be easy and will not be without sacrifice, but it is the kind of question that needs to be debated fully. Maybe that debate can start. In the meantime, we in the capital will go on being thankful for the weather we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have and waiting confidently for things to get worse.

Orléans Poppy Fund supports community projects Brier Dodge

EMC news - The annual legion poppy campaign is no small fundraising drive, bringing almost $90,000 into the community last year. The money goes into a public trust, with no funds used for the actual branch. Instead, the money collected is used for a variety of community initiatives, including veteran services. The more than $87,000 raised by the 2011 Orléans Legion Poppy Campaign

bought defibrillators for the curling clubs in Navan and Cumberland. “There’s a need everywhere,” said legion president Jim Ferguson. “We sponsor everything we can.” He said there are guidelines to where they can disperse funds, but most go towards benefitting veterans. “At Christmas, we visited all the seniors homes and provided treats and gifts to all the veterans at all the homes in the Orléans area,” Ferguson said. Legion members are

selling poppies at Place d’Orléans Shopping Centre until Nov. 10 at 9 p.m. NOVEMBER 11

The Nov. 11 Remembrance Day ceremony has continued to grow in the east end. This year, the legion has obtained a special event permit from the city to accommodate increased attendance. The majority of businesses in the Taylor Creek area – excluding the medical centre which is open seven days a week – are opening up their

parking lots. There is also parking available on Lacolle Way, in Taylor Creek. “It’s going to be a very busy year,” Ferguson said. This year, along with 260 cadets, Mayor Jim Watson will be attending the Orléans ceremony, scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Because of the high volume of people expected, Ferguson recommended showing up by 10 a.m. to properly park and find a spot to observe prior to the start of the ceremony. There will be refreshments provided following the ceremony, held at the legion at 800 Taylor Creek Dr. “Nov. 11 is for veterans, there’s no speaking;” Ferguson said. “It’s Remembrance Day, so we carry out the celebration of remembrance.”

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When I attended the Drums Alive class at the Ray Friel Recreation Complex I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure what I would encounter. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I expected to see a bunch of chanting soccer moms slowly banging bongo drums or a group of kids playing Rock Band. But the class was something entirely different. I joined a session held on a Thursday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Ray Friel Recreation Complex. I was surprised at how well the instructor was able to integrate drumming into exercise class. To make our drums, we took risers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; normally used for step classes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; stacked upside down and placed a large inflated exercise ball on top, and grabbed a pair of drum sticks. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why those drummers at Bluesfest have sweat whipping off their faces. Drums Alive is an internationally-taught class, with Canadian instructors certified through the Canadian Fitness Professionals organization. Ray Friel is one of the only spots in Ottawa that Drums Alive is offered in a drop-in class format; usually it is offered as a specialty paid program. About 20 of us jammed along with instructor Zara Phillips to a range of upbeat songs, including several African-inspired percussion pieces. The rest of the class was quick to encourage Phillips, a South African now living in OrlĂŠans, to use the African drums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where are all the lions?â&#x20AC;? one yelled out as we started a track. The class incorporated some standard aerobics class moves, with hops, skips and jumps around the ball, while beating our â&#x20AC;&#x153;drumsâ&#x20AC;? in a variety of basic beats.

My musical talents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t register very high on any type of scale, but even I found the beats easy to follow. We moved our exercise balls into a circle at one point, a part of the class that participants enjoyed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It builds community within the class,â&#x20AC;? Phillips said, compared to a standard exercise class with rows of participants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes the boredom out of any exercise that you would find tedious.â&#x20AC;? Her favourite track for the class is All The People in the World, by Safri Duo. Drums Alive does produce tracks and choreography, but Phillips likes to use different tracks and steps every class. Some of the participants opt to stay bound to ground more than others, who jump up and down as they hit the beat to maximize the exercise component of the class. Overall, I would consider the class medium-impact. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The super-fit person can do the jumping jacks,â&#x20AC;?

No new police officers proposed for two years Laura Mueller

EMC news - Ottawa’s population is growing, but the size of its police service won’t be for the next two years. The police service has no plans to add new officer or civilian positions until 2015 as the Ottawa Police Service tries to hold the line on increasing costs and corresponding tax hikes. As it stands this year, an average homeowner can expect to pay an additional $13 a year on their tax bill for police services. The police budget is going up by $9.5 million: $4 million from tax assessment growth from new homes and businesses, and $5.5 million paid by existing taxes. That amount represents the 2.5 per cent increase set by city council. The city’s population continues to rise, but the number of police officers isn’t increasing in step, said Chief Charles Bordeleau. That ratio will start to catch up with us in 2015 and 2016, when the service plans to add 23 new members (both sworn and civilian) in each year.

A new police station near Carleton Lodge long-term care facility is on the horizon. When it was first announced in 2010, the city expected to finish building the station by the end of this year. It was pushed back, but there is $30 million set aside to get that project underway in 2014. The whole project is expected to cost $50.3 million. The city also plans to put $5 million towards upgrading communications centres and adding a second centre, which will temporarily be located at the Elgin Street police headquarters.

The police service is able to hire officers to make up for those retiring by finding cost savings elsewhere. A major one announced last month was the new collision reporting centre, which will open in 2013 and bring $600,000 in new revenue that year. That will rise to $800,000 in 2014. But most of the $2 million in savings the police found this year would come from a reduction in a stepped-up training program that was needed after amalgamation, when around 50 officers were retiring each year. The Just in Time program was started to ensure that new officers were ready to hit the ground as soon as officers retired, but that number has now dropped to 30 officers

retiring each year. As a result, the police service plans spend $1.1 million less on that training program in 2013. As always, the top cop cost is staff compensation; it comprises 83 per cent of the police budget. The city will have to spend $9.5 million more on its civilian and sworn employees in 2013. After public consultations, city council is set to vote on the budget on Nov. 28.

Low turnout at budget meetings Laura Mueller

EMC - A sparse turnout and series of lengthy thankyou speeches characterized a low-key city budget public consultation on Nov. 1. Fewer than 10 questions were posed to city staff during the afternoon meeting at city hall – the third of four consultations scheduled around the city to discuss the city’s spending plan for 2013. Mayor Jim Watson said the lack of attendance indicates general satisfaction with the budget, whereas in years past, hundreds of angry residents would show up in protest when they didn’t like something in the budget proposal. “I think there is generally a sense that people are glad this isn’t’ a slash and burn exercise,” Watson said. “It’s not a particularly flashy budget, which I think at this time in our economic stage, people are looking for that kind of stable approach.” Watson said the city has scheduled one afternoon budget consultation in each of the past couple of years to give an opportunity for people who can’t come out to the rest of the meetings in the evening. “We wanted to give people an option of one afternoon because all the other meetings are in the evenings,” Watson said.

Hydro Ottawa crews help U.S. utilities after Hurricane Sandy A group of 13 Hydro Ottawa power line maintainers are in Connecticut to assist Northeast Utilities in restoring power to approximately 354,000 residents after Hurricane Sandy caused significant damage to the area. “Hydro Ottawa offered assistance without hesitation. Restoring power is a specialized skill and the electricity industry supports each other in these times of need,” said Bryce Conrad, Hydro Ottawa’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Ottawa escaped the storm relatively unscathed. At its peak the storm knocked out power to approximately 3,000 Hydro Ottawa customers in the Casselman, Blackburn Hamlet, Crystal Beach and Merivale areas. Crews worked to successfully restore power across the city and our now able to support other communities in need of help. The Hydro Ottawa crews are working outside Danielson, Connecticut where high winds and falling trees have downed power lines and damaged poles. “When power outages occur, Hydro Ottawa employees go above and beyond to ensure public safety and to get the power back on as soon as possible,” added Conrad. “I am proud that these crews will be using these talents to help our U.S. neighbours.” This is the first time Hydro Ottawa has dispatched crews to the United States. During past widespread power outages, crews have assisted utilities in Ontario and Quebec. The 13 power line maintainers join 12 Hydro Ottawa contract forestry workers who are clearing trees in Connecticut to restore the power.

Chipotle beef cups a spicy appetizer EMC lifestyle - Chipotles are dried smoked jalapeno peppers in a spicy tomato vinegar sauce (adobo sauce). They are quite spicy and add a rich, smoky flavour. You won’t need the entire can, so freeze the remaining in a resealable bag or freezer container for another use, such as chili or pulled pork, or dress up mayonnaise for a dip. Preparation Time: 20 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes Servings: 8 Ingredients:

• 1 can (186 mL/215 g) chipotles in adobo sauce • 1 tomato • 1 pound (454 g) extra lean ground beef • 1 onion, diced • 2 tsp (10 mL) all-purpose flour • 1 tsp (5 mL) each ground cumin and chili powder • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper • 1/2 cup (125 mL) approx. shredded old cheddar • 1/2 cup (125 mL) approx. guacamole • 1/3 cup (75 mL) approx. light sour cream

• Tortilla chips • Fresh cilantro leaves Preparation:

Purée the can of chipotles and sauce; set aside. Cut the tomato in half crosswise; squeeze out seeds and dice. In a large skillet, cook the beef and onion over mediumhigh heat, breaking up the meat, until browned, about four minutes. Drain in colander. Return to skillet and stir in the tomato, flour, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper; cook for one minute. Stir in two tbsp (25 mL) puréed chipotles and cook one minute. Remove from heat. To assemble individual appetizers, amounts will depend on size of serving dish: spoon about 1/4 cup (50 mL) warm beef mixture into dish. Sprinkle with one tbsp (15 mL) cheese; top with a dollop (about 1 tbsp/15 mL) of guacamole, then a smaller dollop (1 tsp/5 mL) of sour cream. Garnish with a tortilla chip and cilantro leaf. Serve with small spoons. Tip: Make beef mixture ahead to make holiday entertaining easy. Foodland Ontario

Ottawa set to welcome new street food Laura Mueller

EMC news – Looser proposed rules governing food trucks in the city would mean that 20 vehicles would be able to begin operating next year, but some councillors are worried the changes will make Ottawa look like a nanny state. The eased licensing laws for food trucks are meant to inspire creative chefs and entrepreneurs to expand the street-food offerings in Ottawa. To that end, the process will include a selection panel that would be charged with ensuring the new offerings contribute to making the city more vibrant, but not to dictate menu items. The panel is meant to ensure the best and most creative new vendors get a crack at one of the 20 new spaces (there are also 16 existing vacant spots), said Bay Ward Coun. Mark Taylor, the chairman of the city’s community and protective services committee. The new rules still have to be endorsed by full city council, but Taylor’s committee voted in support of the changes – with all members expect for College Ward Coun. Rick Chiarelli in favour. “I think our job is to de-

termine how many vehicles there should be and where they should be and leave it up to the vendors to decide what to serve,” Chiarelli said. “It’s not our job to engineer menus.” Councillors Jan Harder (Barrhaven) and Eli El-Chantiry (West Carleton-March) also expressed concerns about the risk of dictating the type of food to be served, but they voted in support of the rules in the end. But Philip Powell, the city staffer who worked on the new rules, said they were specifically designed to “look big” and be flexible instead of being prescriptive. He said the looser regulations are an opportunity for “cultural celebration” in the city. Taylor said he hopes ethnic cuisines and hip, urban foods take over from hot dogs and poutine. Aside from a Thai-themed truck near city hall and Stone Soup’s truck at the University of Ottawa, there is very little variety in Ottawa’s street food. That’s not because the city tells vendors what to sell, but rather because the restricted size of the trucks allowed limits food storage and cooking options, Taylor said. Easing the restriction even slightly from one metre

Laura Mueller/Metroland

The has city drafted new food-truck rules in hopes of seeing more unique street-food vendors like Dung Li’s Thai soup truck that has parked at Elgin and Lisgar streets in Centretown for the past five months. wide to 1.2 metres wide will make a positive difference, said street-food vendor Terry Scanlon. He has operated his truck for 30 years, but says he welcomes the new rules that will bring more vendors like him to the streets. “I know from experience, you have to have the space to produce the product,” Scanlon said. Scanlon also supports a regulated distance of 46 metres between a food truck and a restaurant. The distance can breed tension between street vendors and traditional restaurants because lower overhead costs mean the trucks can undercut the prices res-

taurants charge. Maintaining the right distance reduces tension, Scanlon said. Powell looked to international street-food leaders like Portland, Ore., to compare rules. In Portland, the vast majority of food trucks are set up on private property and that’s ideally where Powell would like to see Ottawa’s street-food scene evolve. The process will be slightly easier for vendors on private property – they won’t be vetted by the expert panel. City council was set to vote on the new rules on Wednesday Oct. 24, after this newspaper’s deadline.

Anti-smoking treatment shows promise Peptide helps prevent relapse EMC news - Scientists at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) have identified a potential new approach to preventing smoking relapse, which occurs frequently in smokers who attempt to quit, despite current treatments. “We have developed a protein peptide that may be a new type of highly targeted treatment to prevent smoking relapse,” says Dr. Fang Liu, senior scientist in CAMH’s Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute and professor in the department of psychiatry at the University of Toronto. Liu and her team initially found that nicotine exposure can enhance binding between two types of brain receptors and were able to generate a protein peptide to disrupt the binding of the two receptors.

Working with CAMH senior scientist Dr. Anh Dzung Le, the peptide was then tested in an animal model of relapse. As anticipated, it had the effect of reducing attempts to seek nicotine. “These discoveries present an avenue to develop an anti-smoking medication that directly targets the relapse process by focusing on this brain target,” says Liu, whose study was published online in the Journal of Experimental Medicine. “We hope that it will lead to an alternative treatment for smokers who aren’t succeeding with current smoking cessation medications.” A year after treatment with current medications, only about 20 per cent of people remain abstinent, past research shows. The CAMH is Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, as well as one of the world’s leading research centres in its field.

Most bus fare hikes capped at 2.5 % Laura Mueller

EMC news – A 2.5 per cent cap on OC Transpo fare hikes wouldn’t apply to fares for the city’s most vulnerable citizens. Community pass holders are set to pay 9.4 per cent more for their passes. Ticket prices would also go up to $3. That’s not listed as a fare increase in the proposed 2013 budget because it was approved last year, but the fare hike was put on hold due to delays in rolling out the Presto smart-card payment system. A regular trip using tickets currently costs $2.70. For Para Transpo users who have a community pass, those two increases combined will really add up for people like her, said Catherine Gardner, a former member of the de-

funct city advisory committee on accessibility issues. Otherwise, the draft transit budget mostly holds the line. Ridership is projected to remain steady at 102.4 million trips over a 12-month period. Riders experienced change last year with the “route optimization” exercise that will save OC Transpo $20 million a year, and more changes are on the horizon as construction of the light-rail line is set to get underway next year, so transit isn’t looking at big changes this year, said OC Transpo general manager John Manconi. The transit agency will see the full benefit of $8.9 million in annual savings thanks to the addition of 75 doubledecker buses that started rolling out this year. After public consultations, city council is set to vote on the budget on Nov. 28.

Sugar bowl more than just egg money Budget maintains


t was a blue sugar bowl. Much larger than the one we used every day on the kitchen table. Father said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It wasn’t used for sugar anymore, though. It was where Mother kept her egg money. It had a matching jug too, but it just stood beside the sugar bowl and was never used. I figured the reason Mother used the sugar bowl for her egg money and not the jug was because it had a lid on it. To protect what was inside. Goodness knows we kids would never dare go into the sugar bowl without permission. Mother never heard of egg money when she moved to that back woods farm in Renfrew County after living 18 years in New York. But it was Aunt Bertha and Mrs. Beam, too, who told her about saving a penny here and a penny there. It was to be hers alone. Mrs. Beam snorted when she told mother about it being hers alone though. Sadly Mother soon found out what she meant. Now, about the egg money. It was Mother’s challenge to keep money in the sugar bowl. That meant that every week she went into Renfrew and peddled her wares doorto-door. At the first, Mother thought that that meant just peddling eggs. But Aunt Ber-

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories tha was quick to show her how she could add greatly to her egg money. “It’s not just from selling eggs, you know,” she told Mother. Everyone in Renfrew likes a fresh chicken now and again Aunt Bertha said. Soon Mother added sticky buns, freshly churned butter and homemade soap to her wares. Aunt Bertha said the money could be used for anything she wanted: new print from Walker Store or maybe a fresh pair of lisle stockings. But Mother had other plans for her egg money. She longed to go back to New York. Not to stay of course, which was always a fear deep in my heart, because she talked about the place so often and I knew how much she missed the life she once led. No, it would be just for a visit, to spend a few days with her friend Rosie and maybe go to an opera again or visit the museums she loved. Yes, she longed for just one trip back to New York and her wish was that one day there would be

enough egg money in the blue sugar bowl to go back for a visit. Often, at night, she would take the bowl down from the back-to-the-wall cupboard and spread the money out on the oilcloth on the kitchen table. She would count and stack the coins in order and if there were any bills, she would flatten them out and put a salt shaker on them to hold them flat. Then she would write the amount and the date on a slip of paper and tuck it into the sugar bowl with the money and back it would go on the shelf in the cupboard. There would be a big sigh. Never would there be enough money for the trip back to New York. It wasn’t because she would dip into it for something frivolous like silk stockings or a new hat -- the reason was much simpler than that. It would be because Father would have had to have some of the few coins she had worked so hard to accumulate. Father never had more than a few cents in his overall

pockets. So when something wore out, like it often did on the farm or a new piece of harness was needed, inner tubes to replace the well-patched ones on the car or even maybe a new plow point, it was into the egg money Father would go. There would be so much sadness on such a day. I always dreaded being in the kitchen when that happened. Father would come in from the barns, stop just inside the kitchen door and pause as if he was undecided where he was heading. If Mother was busy at the stove or at the wash tub, she would pause for just a moment and a look of sadness would come over her face. Father would slowly walk over to the cupboard and take down the blue bowl and take out a few coins or one or two of the bills, cram them into his pocket and quietly leave the house. Not a word would be spoken. We would hear him leave the yard in the wagon or buggy and I would know he was headed into Renfrew or to Briscoe’s General Store with a few coins from Mother’s egg money to get what was needed to keep the farm going. It was at those times that I would know once again Mother’s dream of a trip back to her beloved New York was as far away as ever.

services: mayor Continued from page 15

The city’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 to 2.5 per cent each year. The mayor said it’s a plan that mostly sees city services maintained and the continuation of existing projects, but not a lot of new spending. Representatives from the National Capital Heavy Construction Association continued their campaign to urge city officials to spend more on infrastructure renewal. Former mayorial candidate Mike McGuire bemoaned the city’s move to biweekly garbage pickup and questioned the amount of money it would save the city. He was also concerned about the city’s debt level, saying there is never a “good time” to borrow money. City treasurer Marian Simulik called McGuire’s comments “alarmist” and said Ottawa’s debt is nowhere

near a crisis level and is actually low per capita when compared to other large Canadian cities. But most of the residents in attendance had positive things to say about the city’s spending on the arts, heritage and culture. Watson said people thanking him for the $1 million investment in the Arts, Heritage and Culture Plan had become a reoccurring theme during the consultations. “I think they were pleasantly surprised that we had passed that arts report that asked for $1 million and in fact we’re delivering on it,” Watson said. “I think there was almost a bit of surprise that: ‘Oh good, they said one thing and they actually did it.’” In the past, councils would pass reports and then forget about funding them by the time the budget rolled around, Watson said. “In years gone by there were massive cuts proposed to arts and culture, so it’s nice to have turned the corner and brought in a budget that doesn’t have a lot of big cuts and doesn’t have a lot of big spending, but is very much balanced,” he said.

Culture and heritage to shine at new event in Vanier Michelle Nash

EMC news - The Vanier community is preparing for its largest outdoor cultural festival this holiday season, inviting the rest of the city to see what the neighbourhood is all about. On Dec. 1, C’est Chill, Vanier’s first ever culture, language and heritage show get underway. Suzanne Valiquet, executive director of Quartier Vanier, said the event will feature a parade, art projects, music, crafts, a food fair and a visit from Santa Claus. “It is the biggest outdoor event for the BIA,” Valiquet said. The Quartier Vanier hired

art director Dominique St. Pierre to help organize the artistic aspects of the festival. It is also working in conjunction with the Vanier Community Association, Beautification Vanier, Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health and local artists to get the show off the ground. “Once again, this is the confirmation of how many great people we really have here,” Valiquet said. The $30,000 budget for the event was provided by Heritage Canada, after the city applied for the funding. Valiquet said the funding is aimed at highlighting culture in a strong francophone community. The event will begin with

the sound of church bells, ringing from all five local Vanier churches, in an attempt to call out area residents to meet on Dupuis Street, reminiscent of days gone by. The sound will be recorded and played on a video screen at St. Charles Church square, where a sound stage will be set up with appearances by les Mosquitoes, David D-track and a performance by several Ottawa-based DJs. Meanwhile, Beechwood Avenue will be hosting a food fair and potential craft fair, where residents can mingle, purchase some goods and eat, Valiquet said. One of the interesting aspects of the event will be the multiple ways the community

aims to beautify areas of Vanier, including “yarn bombing” Beechwood, where light fixtures and street poles will be covered in cozy knitted colours. Wabano youth and artists will also be launching a large dream catcher on the corner of Beechwood and the Vanier Parkway. Valiquet said the raising of the catcher will be quite an event in of itself. “There is a lot going on in a number of areas in the neighbourhood,” she said. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury is also looking forward to the event. “What more to say than it is very exciting, with the various partners now come into the project and with the help of funds to promote culture -- it is exciting,” Fleury said he intends to be at all of the events throughout the community. “This is the start of perhaps something very interesting,” he said. With only one month left, there remains much to do, Valiquet added, and any interested volunteers are encouraged get in touch. Whether residents are interested in knitting or crocheting for the yarn bombing, donating wool for the beautification efforts, Valiquet said any help is needed. Volunteers can contact

Discovering ways to resist the impulse buy


BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse “buying a $6-magazine that tells you how to save money will help you to save money ... on your next trip.” “One of the biggest causes of overspending in the 35-55 age group is impulse purchases,” says Judi Cane, a planner with Money Coaches Canada. “People have $800per-month grocery bills, but they don’t realize that half of that is spent on non-grocery items that they just don’t need.” Cane says retailers like Walmart, Costco and Loblaw have effectively tapped into our internal human weakness to buy things we don’t need. “At Costco, you have to walk past aisles and aisles of non-grocery items – everything from printer toner to eyeglasses and books – before you get to the food,” says Cane. “And even if Walmart has a separate door for the grocery department, they put things in the aisles that will tempt you. It’s hard to get out of there with just groceries.” Of course, it’s not just the grocery store that gets us. Canadian Tire has enormous bins of small items at the checkout quietly calling out to you. “It’s pretty easy to go into the store for a $10 bag of road salt and come out with bags full of stuff like

flashlights, chewing gum, even books,” says Cane. On the last Friday of each month, Cane and her Ottawa colleagues of Money Coaches Canada are offering free seminars on financial management. A “money town hall,” as Cane describes it, it’s an opportunity for people to raise any financial questions they may have in a relaxed and open forum. October’s Money Monday was held at Caffe Latte Cino in Orleans on Oct. 29. Eight weeks before Christmas, overspending was a hot topic. Cane’s best advice? “Before you go shopping, make sure you know exactly what you’re going to buy and only pay cash,” says Cane. She admits this is much easier said than done and that most of her clients don’t even realize how much they’re overspending until she forces them to take a good look at their grocery bills. But committing to your list can make hundreds of dollars a month difference. November is financial literacy month in Canada. So why not take the first step toward good money management – make a list and stick to it. Oh, and never take my six-year-old shopping with you.

Another player, Nathan Amesbury, was able to snag the pass, made during a semifinal touch football game on Oct. 30 at the Nepean Sportsplex. The game was part of a tournament held for the city’s public elementary schools. Henry Munro won the game 13-6 and went on to capture the board title later the same day.

ever go shopping with your kids. Well, never go shopping with my six-year-old. He can be extremely persuasive. He’s not the type to whine or beg. He’s so subtle that I usually don’t realize he’s been working on me until after I’ve already purchased the not-on-the-list item. Just the other day we were at Value Village looking for a couple of very specific formal wear items for the children to wear as a one-off to an upcoming family wedding. As I was perusing the baby outfits – not on the list, but evidently a good deal (failure one for the impulse buyer) – my son said, “Mom, when you’re done, I’d like to have a look over there,” and he pointed to boys’ outerwear. He waited patiently while I flipped through hanger after hanger of baby sleepers before we made our way over to boys’ wear. Following my precise method, he started flipping hangers, rapidly sifting through the “junk” until he came across what he wanted: “You see this vest, Mom. I think it would help to keep my chest warm this winter.” Interesting. I kind of knew at this point that he was after something. “We’re not getting that today,” I said. “Oh, I know,” he said, and he continued flipping the hangers. “Here’s a good one,” he said, and he removed the vest from the rack. He put it on and began to play with the zipper. “I don’t think this is the one,” he said. “It’s got a zipper and I don’t have very good luck with zippers.” In hindsight, that was the turning point. In a very refined fashion, he’d given me a problem to solve and I totally took on the challenge. As a result, I assumed the task of hanger flipping, looking for a nice, warm vest, with buttons. We found one for him – very good quality, waterproof, with goose down filling – and into the cart it went. It was only $6, but it was $6 I hadn’t intended to spend. My son is like that little voice inside my head. Even if you don’t have kids, I’m sure you’ve experienced it. It’s the voice that gets a little bored waiting in line at the checkout and whispers, “you need batteries.” It’s the voice that ever so quietly says,

First open house for Rockcliffe air base Company encourages participation, ideas Michelle Nash

EMC news - More than a year after finally acquiring the property, the Canada Lands Company is finally ready to start the consultation process with the surrounding community on the design plans for the former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe. The company will hold its first open house at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum on Nov. 26 from 3 to 9 p.m., featuring two presentations, one at 4 p.m. and one at 7 p.m. The rest of the evening is planned to offer people the opportunity for members of the public can gather information and offer comments and ideas about the future of the property. Don Schultz, a Calgary native, is the real estate director in charge of the project that will see the 136 -hectare site transformed into a unique urban landscape. “It is all about gathering as many ideas as we can get,” he said. Schultz said Canada Lands will only present an analysis of the site at the open house, leaving space for residents to comment on all aspects of the

project. “There is no design,” he said. “This event is all about where and how the design should go.” The goal for the group over the next 18 to 24 months is to develop a community design plan and submit it to the city by spring of 2014. The process of purchasing the land originally started in 2005, when the Department of National Defence planned to close the base and sell the land to Canada Lands, with a portion of the site also being sold to the National Capital Commission in 2005. Canada Lands officially purchased the land in May 2011 following the settlement of a three-year land claim dispute with the Algonquins of Ontario. Residents from communities surrounding the air base participated in a number of consultations at that time, but the land claim halted the original plans. One of the concerns raised during the first consultation process was traffic, specifically where it would be directed in the area. Schultz said the group continues to see Belfast Street as the entrance and exit for the development, but added the


The first open house concerning the development on the 136 hectares of land will take place on Nov. 26 at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum from 3 to 9 p.m. company also wants to have direct access to the Aviation Parkway. Access to the parkway depends on whether the route is used as part of the proposed interprovincial bridge project. Schultz said the company will tackle this particular factor by working on two designs, one if the bridge proceeds at the Kettle Island cor-

Pet Adoptions Spirit ID#A144528

Spirit is a neutered male, black Border Collie and Retriever flat coat dog who is about 9 years old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on October 10, but is now available for adoption. Spirit is looking for a quiet family, as he is a “kick back and relax” kind of fellow. Spirit has a polite and somewhat independent disposition and welcomes any gentle, friendly approach with a wag of his tail. He is a special needs dog, since he suffers from degenerative joint disease (arthritis). Many dogs of his age will develop joint disease just like his, and it can be very successfully managed. 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.

ridor and one if it does not. “We fully expect that traffic will be a strong concern and we will address those concerns,” he said. The main thing, Schultz pointed out, is that a lot of time has passed since those first round of consultations, including changes to where the city’s light rail system will run.

Initially planned for Montreal Road, the LRT will actually be further south, which Schultz said has affected the projected number of units the company is planning for. In early planning, the team wanted to create an urban hub of more than 15,000 units near the projected transit station. But that is no longer an

option, Schultz said and the actual number of units is now more dependent on the real estate market and results and comments from the public consultation process. The Rockcliffe project team will be announced at the open house, which includes management from MMM Group and Meloche and Associates, market research from N. Barry Lyon Consultants, urban design and landscape through Brook McIlroy and Janet Rosenberg and Associates and public consultant specialists Momentum. The entire development of the land is projected to take more than 15 years to complete, with 8 to 12 hectares under development at any given time. The Canada Lands Company has a history in acquiring land from the defence department and has in the past used street names and landmarks to commemorate the land they are developing. The company has also officially launched a Rockcliffe air base website,, which Schultz said is dedicated to receiving comments from the public and keeping residents informed. There is no registration needed to attend the open house and residents from across the city are invited to participate.

Ottawa Humane Society cracks down on cold weather cruelty

surfaces may appear solid, ice is often uneven and thin in places, and your pet may fall in and possibly suffer hypothermia or even death. It’s best to limit the amount of outdoor time for any animal in frigid temperatures, so take your dog for lots of quick short walks instead of one long one. Consider a sweater or coat for your pet on cold days when you go out, especially if your dog is very young or old, or is sick or short-coated. Be sure to wipe down its paws each time you return home to remove chemicals or salt often used to melt ice and snow. These can be poisonous if ingested and can irritate sensitive feet. The OHS recommends that cat owners should always 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. Remember never to leave an animal in an unheated car for long periods of time, and be sure to knock on the car hood each time you start the engine to scare any cats away. Cats often crawl under car hoods to find warmth and can be injured or killed by a starting motor. If you see an animal in distress or without adequate shelter from the cold, call the OHS Emergency Unit at (613) 725-1532.

The Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) wishes to remind pet owners that plunging winter temperatures can be dangerous and even life-threatening for pets. While the OHS strongly recommends that you bring your dog inside in extreme temperatures, owners of outside dogs need to be especially vigilant about providing appropriate care on days like this. “The OHS will have zero tolerance for animals left outside without adequate shelter from the elements, or an ample supply of fresh water during these cold months,” says OHS Inspector Miriam Smith. “If we find a dog left outside without adequate shelter or water, in intolerable conditions with no owner around, the dog will be removed for its own safety and animal cruelty charges may be laid.” Dogs that live outside require as a minimum a doghouse soundly built of weatherproof materials facing away from prevailing winds. It should be 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. Keep your animals away from ice-covered bodies of water— even small ponds you think may be frozen over. Although many

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!


This is the time to get started on long-overdue work, Aries. Things will go smoothly if you focus all of your attention on the tasks at hand and avoid distractions.

Avoid problems related to hypoglycemia



If you have diabetes you are no doubt aware of the importance of blood glucose monitoring (measuring the levels of sugar in the blood) on a daily basis with a device called the blood glucose meter or “glucometer”. Monitoring allows to verify the effects of the diabetes treatment modes on blood glucose levels and to identify the episodes when blood glucose levels spike (hyperglycemia) and when blood glucose levels fall (hypoglycemia). Both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia episodes are dangerous and both conditions are to be avoided. Hypoglycemia is a common side effect associated to the use of some diabetes treatments, including insulin. Consider the following advice to avoid hypoglycemia episodes:
