Park centre up for redesign Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC News - The renovation and expansion of Heron Park Community Centre continues to feature high on the list of priorities in Capital Ward. Coun. David Chernushenko and the four community association presidents in the ward have identified the centre as one of the priorities in need of funding to undertake a needs assessment. While the city did not designate any funding in its 2012 budget for the project, that has not deterred residents to begin a process of discussing what and how their desired community centre would look like. Since the early fall, Heron Park residents have been working with a group of Carleton University architecture students to do a demographic study of residents in the area and discuss with them their needs and wishes for a renovated centre. Originally the centre was built to serve as changing rooms for baseball teams, according to the Heron Park Community Association website. The needs of the surrounding communities have has long since outgrown that simple purpose. Currently, the centre is shared between the city and residents to run different programs. Andrew Slade, a student in his final year of graduate studies in architecture at Carleton, has been attending resident meetings for the past 14 weeks trying out different participative and interactive design techniques with various people in the community.

“I think we all understand that this will take a fair amount of time and therefore we will have to set many goals in the process to achieving that ultimate one in the end,” said Slade. His biggest goal for now involves creating a display of all the ideas they have come up with so far, for the 2012 Winter Carnival taking place on Feb. 11. “We are hoping to make this year’s event a fundraiser for the new community centre to spread the word to the wider community,” said Slade. “I will be taking all these interactive design ideas and creating a first set of drawings, diagrams, images, computer renderings, visualizations, models, or whatever seems best to communicate the ideas to the wider public.” He hopes their architectural designs would help motivate and invite more people within the community to come out and give ideas for the new design.

sion for the future of the centre is, as well as interpreting architectural drawings to the residents. “The experience has been very valuable,” said Slade. “I have definitely learned a lot about how people react and respond to architectural drawings and design. “Also, more importantly, I’m learning a lot about what are the types of things that matter to people and how we can learn a lot about space through the way that others imagine it.” From what he has heard from residents, they are looking for a facility that is better able to meet the changing demands of the neighbourhood. “The ultimate goal is to raise enough awareness, support, and money, eventually, to get the Heron Park community a community centre,” said Slade. Lack of funding is certainly an obstacle, but not one that can be held at bay forever.

Canal ice dangerously thin, NCC warns Staff

EMC news – Members of the public are being reminded not to venture onto the Rideau Canal despite the layer of ice on its surface. The National Capital Commission said on Dec. 28 that the canal’s ice surface is “dangerously thin” and could break under a person’s weight. Water levels range in depth from 1 metre to 4.3 metres between downtown Ottawa and Dows Lake. Ice surfaces must be 30 centimetres thick to allow members of the public on the

ice, which the NCC said usually occurs in the first half of January. Once the ice thickens, the NCC will work hard to open the skateway, dubbed the World’s Largest Skating Rink, as soon as possible, a press release said. The notice urged residents to “keep personal safety in mind” and to stay off the ice until the skateway is deemed safe and officially opened. For more information about ice conditions visit the NCC’s website at www.canadascapital.gc.ca/skateway. &'''#(,.+)'

Ottawa South has exciting visits, new beginnings in 2011 gary Winter Olympics. Although Manley said she has a blueprint of the Ottawa South park on her basement wall, she had never visited it. The mayor and several councillors joined her and hundreds of campers for a dance party at the park.

Riverside South student welcomes royal couple to Ottawa Thousands of Ottawa residents spent Canada Day hoping to catch a glimpse of the royal couple, but one lucky boy got front row seats for their arrival at the Ottawa International Airport. Riverside South resident Kellen Schleyer, 9, welcomed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada, presenting them with a hand-chosen bouquet of flowers and sharing a short conversation with them before they headed downtown to the war memorial. O-Train expansion good news for Ottawa South City council’s spring decision to expand the O-Train service by adding new trains and doubling the track between Greenboro and Bayview was hailed as a step forward by communities south of the light rail service, although they said they’d like to see more progress at a faster pace. Community association presidents in South Keys, Findlay Creek and Riverside South all expressed their support for the change, although Riverside South Community Association vice-president Scott Hodge said it needs to expand farther south to provide any real benefit for his community.

The plane remained in the arrivals lobby until the end of the year. The plane is owned and maintained by Vintage Wings Canada headquartered at the Gatineau airport, and is still in perfect working order.

Bus Service Improvements as a result of $5.5 million funding increase An increase in service hours on OC Transpo bus routes began in December and will continue in January to address the growing demand and number of riders on the system. Please take note of the changes that have been made within the Gloucester-Southgate area. Route #143 from Conroy/ Johnston to the Greenboro Station will see two additional trips during the evenings at 16:56 and 18:56, while route #114 will see the addition of articulated buses during key times to increase capacity. New Year and New Activities at the Greenboro District Library Looking to get involved in some new activities this year? Try checking out the Greenboro District Library for offered classes and programs. There are craft, reading, writing, and homework help groups for the children and resume building and financial planning for teens and adults. For an extra bit of adventure remember that your library card can also be used to borrow passes that offer families free admission to a network of local museums including the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Canadian War Museum, and the Canadian Museum of Nature. For more information on any of the programs offered please visit the library directly or visit http://biblioottawalibrary.ca/en/ main/program. Seeking comments and Public Working Group members – Blossom Park East Transportation Study Last month, the City of Ottawa and I hosted a public meeting at the Greenboro Community Centre to discuss a transportation study requested by residents that will be undertaken in Blossom Park East, the community bounded by St. Barbara Avenue to the north, Conroy Road to the east, Queensdale Avenue to the south and Bank Street to the west. The purpose of the study is to provide City staff with a better understanding of the traffic-related safety issues in the community, and to develop solutions to these issues that are both attainable and affordable in the long-term. At this time, City staff are collecting comments and want to hear from residents about the trafficrelated safety issues observed in the community. City staff are also looking for residents in the study area who would like to participate in a Public Working Group that will work with them to provide a community perspective as the study progresses. Please visit www.ottawa.ca/blossomparkeast, or contact my office at 613-580-2480 or diane.deans@ottawa.ca for more information and to provide your comments. Garbage Collection and Disposing of your Christmas tree Just a reminder that during the winter months, waste material must be free of snow and ice, be kept at ground level, and be visible to collection drivers. Your Christmas trees will be collected on your regular garbage day. Please take note that trees will not be collected if they are wrapped in plastic, frozen to the ground, or if all decorations have not been removed. To find out when trees are being collected in your area visit http:// ottawa.ca/garbage_recycle/garbage/index_en.html or check your collection calendar.

Paramedic honoured for South Keys water rescue An Ottawa paramedic received a prestigious bravery award this fall after saving a man from an overflowing South Keys drainage ditch in March. Paramedic Christopher Bugelli received the N. H. McNally Award for Bravery, a provincial recognition named after the founder of Ontario’s ambulance system. Bugelli, 27, dived into the drainage ditch to save the man, which Bugelli said went above and beyond what he’s expected to do. Riverside South helps nursery school break ground in Kenya An Ottawa-based non-profit organization broke ground in Kenya this October with the help of several Riverside South businesses. Elimu is a nonprofit organization founded by Ottawa resident Nina Chung to build schools and other educational facilities in East Africa.

This summer, Coco’s Cafe in Riverside South and Tiny Hoppers child care centre and Global Child Care Services all came together to support a nursery school project in coastal Kenya, and in October workers in Kenya completed the first step: the toilets. MacLeod takes NepeanCarleton, says losses send message to premier As expected, Nepean-Carleton stayed blue during Ontario’s Oct. 6 election, with Progressive Conservative incumbent Lisa MacLeod easily eclipsing her challengers with 52.8 per cent of the vote.

Riverside South runner offers example of sheer determination Riverside South resident Pam MacCormack celebrated her renewed lease on life this fall after losing 68 kilograms and becoming a passionate runner at the age of 62. Along with two other races, MacCormack ran the MADD Dash five-kilometre race on Oct. 16 to honour Alex Zolpis, an Ottawa man who died in a drunk driving accident on Christmas Eve in 2010. At the time, his father Dr. Ed Zolpis, was helping MacCormack lose weight after being morbidly obese for three decades.

City won’t take legal action over broken water main The city decided not to take legal action against the contractors or installers of the broken water main on Woodroffe Avenue that caused an outdoor water ban in Ottawa South last spring. City clerk and solicitor Rick O’Connor released a memo on Aug. 26 explaining the results of a forensic engineering investigation was inconclusive, and offered no grounds for a solid court case. Since causes for the break were inconclusive and the pipe met current design standards, O’Connor said there were no reasonable prospects to win a legal case.

The meeting ended well, however, with students and homeowners coming to an understanding and sharing a round of applause in hopes of better co-operation ahead. Limebank officially opens in Riverside South Gloucester South-Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches and Mayor Jim Watson officially opened the new section of Limebank Road between Spratt and Earl Armstrong roads on Oct. 17, celebrating the road’s transformation “from worst to first.” The road before its reconstruction was dark with only a single lane in each direction, with ditches on either side. It also dipped steeply where a creek runs under the road, a section that was icy and dangerous in the winter. Condo rules block student renters A South Keys condo board passed a rule on Oct. 20 stating landlords can only rent to families, launching a two-month fight between the condo board and a group of students who considered the rule discriminatory. Students argued they would be kicked out under the new rule, although condo board president said they fell into the category of single families as long as they rented together as a group and planned to live together “indefinitely.” Findlay Creek street to honour Ottawa’s first flight City council approved a proposal from Gloucester SouthNepean Coun Steve Desroches to rename an unfinished road in Findlay Creek to Slattery’s Field Street, to honour the 100th anniversary of flight in Ottawa. Slattery’s Field was located across the Rideau Canal from Lansdowne Park. In 1911 during the Central Canada Exhibition an American pilot flew over the exhibition grounds, across Dow’s Lake and back, landing in Slattery’s Field. Findlay Creek will now honour that anniversary by renaming the future Bent Oak Street to Slattery’s Field.

Foligno right at home with Senators By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com Home, it’s often been said, is where the heart is. And with each passing year, Nick Foligno’s connection with Ottawa and the only National Hockey League team he has ever known grows ever stronger. It is simply the right place to be, he’ll tell you, both for him and his wife Janelle, who have eagerly immersed themselves into daily life in the nation’s capital. “My wife and I have been here for five years now and I’ve definitely embraced the people,” said Foligno, 24, the Senators’ first-round pick (28th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. “It’s just a quality community. People care about other people and you want to be involved in that. “It’s nice to get involved. It gets your face out there and people realize you’re not just a hockey player. You’re a person. My wife and I both really enjoy getting involved in the community.” For both Nick and Janelle, that includes lending their names to a number of charitable causes in the Ottawa region. It’s something the two natives of Sudbury, Ont., who got married in July, don’t hesitate to do. “We’re getting involved in charities we’re big believers in and want to help push through and it’s made a big difference,” he said. The Folignos are the celebrity chairs for the Ottawa Senators 65 Roses Sports Club’s annual

gala, set for Feb. 23, which raises funds for cystic fibrosis research. They’re also “doing a lot of stuff with cancer,” the disease that killed Foligno’s mother, Janis, two summers ago. Foligno also recently lent his name to the Sens Big Save, a campaign to help Canadian Blood Services increase blood donations during its holiday time of special need. In addition, Janelle has taken time away from her teaching

career to join the cause of F.A.B. Women, an Ottawa-based group that provides support for females who are battling eating disorders. A primary school French immersion teacher for the last three years, Janelle is now supply teaching so she can devote more energy to a charity that Nick says “is close to Janelle’s heart.” She is the group’s educational manager. Of course, the Folignos wouldn’t be in Ottawa without hockey, and he makes it clear

the passion for the puck game in the capital is something else that makes living here so attractive. “It’s a place where the fans really care about hockey and you want to be in an environment that cares about hockey,” said Foligno. “It’s my first (NHL) team and I have an emotional attachment to it as well. We both enjoy it here.” Foligno was born in Buffalo, when his father, Mike, was a forward with the Sabres. But a pair of trades would lead to the family moving twice — to Toronto and Florida — before Mike’s NHL career was done. “We understand the business of hockey and we know you can’t get too comfortable,” said Foligno of his current stability in Ottawa. “But we’re really happy here and we want to be here for a long time.” Nick and Janelle first met in Sudbury, when he was playing with the Ontario Hockey League’s Wolves. Their families remain there and the Folignos plan to build a summer home in the city that will always be “home base” to them. But Ottawa has gained a special place in their hearts, too. “It’s such a good community

of people in Ottawa,” said Foligno. “It reminds me a lot of Sudbury (that way) … You gain friendships after being here so long, whether it’s restaurant owners or just people that you get to meet over time. You get close

to them and we’re really enjoying having some good friends here now. “(Ottawa) has definitely has become our home and we hope to keep it that way for a long time.”

Steven Stamkos has served notice he’s ready to contend for another Rocket Richard Trophy, which goes annually to the NHL’s top goal scorer. Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier continue to be key cogs in the Bolts’ attack, which also gets valuable contributions from the likes of Teddy Purcell

and Ryan Malone. On the blue line, Marc-Andre Bergeron adds some offensive punch, while Victor Hedman and Pavel Kubina are steadying forces. Mathieu Garon and Dwayne Roloson split the goaltending duties.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS Sunday, Jan. 8, 5 p.m., Sportsnet East As the season nears its halfway point, the Flyers have again established themselves as a top contender in the Eastern Conference. Claude Giroux has spent much of the past month atop the NHL scoring leaders chart and will make a strong bid for the Art Ross Trophy. As his 40th birthday approaches, Jaromir Jagr keeps showing he still has plenty of game, while Danny Briere and Scott Hartnell are also key

offensive forces. The loss of Chris Pronger for the season is a big blow for the Flyers blue line, which will now lean more heavily on the likes of Kimmo Timonen and Matt Carle. In goal, Ilya Bryzgalov is Philadelphia’s main man.

Airport Parkway path a bridge to nowhere The Airport Parkway’s pedestrian bridge was going nowhere fast this fall, with construction several months behind because of poor weather and demanding designs. By the end of October, the multiuse-pathway bridge should have already spanned the Airport Parkway between Cahill Drive West and the South Keys plaza, allowing pedestrians and cyclists safe passage to the plaza, O-Train and Sawmill Creek boardwalk throughout the winter before final touches were applied in the spring. Instead, the unfinished Aframe support for the innovative cable-stayed bridge stood on the side of the road with no bridge deck in place. City of Ottawa project manager Jeffrey Waara said the delays came from prolonged design discussions with the rebar

manufacturers, who supply the all-important support structures that keep the bridge upright. The bridge should be completed in June 2012. Human remains found in Heatherington backyard An Ottawa construction crew had a scarier Halloween than they bargained for on Oct. 31 when they discovered human remains in the backyard of a townhouse unit on Heatherington Road. The remains were later identified as Lise Roy, wife of accused serial killer Camille Cleroux who is currently on trial for three murders including hers. Roy was last seen in 1990. Cleroux once lived in the townhouse where her remains were found. School question still big at Findlay Creek AGM The lack of schools in Findlay Creek was once again a hot button issue at the community association’s annual general meeting on Monday, Nov. 7.

The Maplesoft Centre, located on Alta Vista Drive, will provide support services that are not covered by standard medical treatment programs designed to help survivors cope with the psychological and physical effects of having cancer. All the centre’s programs are designed to compliment a cancer survivor’s medical care with the goal of further enabling medical teams to focus on treating the clinical aspects of cancer. It will offer cancer coaching sessions, including pain management, nutrition, relaxation, and fatigue management. DECEMBER

Students lose condo dispute, vow to make human rights case A South Keys condominium board upheld a new rule stipulating that landlords can only rent to single families after a student group fought to have the “discriminatory” rule overturned in October and November. Carleton student Nicholas McLeod was successful in postponing the board’s annual general meeting in November until early December after he received the support he needed to potentially overturn a recent rule against renting to groups of unrelated tenants. However the final vote supported the condo board’s rule, which president Lorne Anderson said covers students renting as a group.

Residents remain locked over gateway The gateway to compromise remained closed in November after residents on Wyman Crescent and those living in nearby Windsor Manor seniors residence couldn’t resolve their differences over a locked gate. Since September, Wyman and Windsor Park residents had been trying to reach a compromise to allow seniors to use the locked gate behind their building, while protecting adjacent Wyman Crescent from potential increases in parking, drop-offs and through traffic. On Nov. 22, Windsor Park Manor hosted a more casual reception after the previous meetings became heated and unproductive. However, that meeting also failed. The two groups are still working to find a solution.

School bus authority picks new directors Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC news – The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority, a body responsible for transporting almost 60,000 students to school each day, has appointed the new board of directors for 2012. Because the authority is responsible for students in both the Ottawa Catholic School Board and the Ottawa Carleton District School Board, representatives from both organizations were selected to serve on the board of directors. Gordon Butler, a Catholic board trustee for the Knoxdale-Merivale/College area, was selected, as well as Jennifer Adams, director of education for the public board, and public board chairwoman and trustee for Somerset/Kitchissippi Jennifer McKenzie. Michael Carson, superintendent of facilities for the public board will serve as secretary for the transportation authori-

ty, with David Leach, superintendent of finance and administration, serving as treasurer. Ted Hurley, who is vicechairman of the Catholic board and trustee for Kanata North and Kanata South, will be the authority’s vice-president. John Shea, a public board trustee for Orleans-Cumberland, will serve as the authority’s president. “I’m looking forward to working closely with the new board of directors to provide safe transportation for all students,” said Vicky Kyriaco, the transportation authority’s general manager. The transportation authority was formed in 2007 as a result of the Ministry of Education’s transportation reform parameters. According to a press release, the authority was responsible for transporting 57,800 elementary and secondary students on more than 1,874 school buses – covering more than 107,000 kilometres daily.

Eliminating debt I spend a lot of time thinking about consumer debt, which is interesting, because – at the risk of making you hate me – I don’t have any. A decade ago, I started out my career by contributing half my first professional paycheques to paying off credit card debt I’d racked up during university. Within a year of working, I had erased any balance owing. Following that, I began the nine-year process of paying off $35,000 in undergraduate student loans. Over 75 per cent of my paycheque at one time went toward these two debts. One would think I had little left to live on. But I never suffered. I shared flats. I ate modestly. I shopped for clothes in vintage stores. I even managed to save half a down payment for my first house within a few years and I took three years’ maternity leave without pay before I ever found myself in the red. Nope, I never suffered, unless you count the fact that

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse

I went without a car, decided to forego annual trips to Cuba with my friends, and used a second-hand television without cable for many years. But that’s not real suffering. Because now, I have no consumer debt. And from what I understand, that’s where the real suffering lies. Shortly before Christmas, the International Monetary Fund raised alarm about the rising levels of household debt in Canada. Canadians now owe an average of 153 per cent of their disposable income. Add to that overinflated housing prices, and any shock to the economy, says the IMF – like a dip in commodity prices or a weak global economy – means Canada will have a difficult time recovering.

And while I don’t carry a balance on a credit card, I do have a mortgage, and I also have savings. So in many ways, my neighbour’s debt could very well affect my well-being and yours. As January credit statements start to pour in, it’s worth considering how to start digging Canadians out of this deep debt hole. For one, I’d like to see stricter regulations on lenders. It’s too easy for people to get car loans and mortgages. (Even unemployed university students can get credit cards). But individuals must also start taking responsibility for their spending. That begins by recognizing that we cannot afford to maintain our current lifestyles. The old and simple rule of financial security applies: We have to tighten our belts and live on less. It’s not easy, of course, with inflation on staple foods, utilities and just about every necessity in life. One Ottawa bankruptcy expert recently

pointed out that housing costs have risen by 76 per cent since 1976, while disposable income has gone up a meagre 15 per cent. Put simply, we don’t have as much money to spend as we used to. Add to that the fact that individuals buy, buy, buy, without accounting for costs of maintenance, and it paints a dark picture of debt accumulation. If you buy a car, you have to calculate how much it’s going to cost to insure the car, to repair the car, and to put gas in the car, especially with rising fuel prices. If you buy a house, you need to look at the size of the rooms and the hallways and determine whether or not you can actually afford to heat and furnish a five-bedroom house with cathedral ceilings in the suburbs, which will require you to drive to and from work. The answer if you’re like most Canadians? Probably not. In 2012, make a resolution to aggressively start eliminating debt. It’s going to be difficult. You may feel you’re suffering at first. But my financial future and yours depends upon your success.

EMC news – A 46-year-old man has been charged with criminal offences relating to coin box thefts from newspaper boxes located across the city – particularly downtown and in the south end. Between Nov. 21 and Dec. 12, there were 54 thefts reported to Ottawa police. The thefts resulted in about $13,000 in

damages. On Dec. 12, a local man of no fixed address was arrested in relation to the thefts and held in custody. He was charged with 80 criminal offences including mischief over $5,000, theft under $5,000 and possession of instruments for breaking into coin devices. He appeared in court on Dec. 16 and his next appearance is scheduled for Jan. 12.

OPINION

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

EDITORIAL

Bi-lingual or bye-lingual Parlez vous francais? For Dartmouth-Cole Harbour MP Robert Chisholm, that may very well have been the question that scuttled his run for the leadership of the federal New Democratic Party. In December, Chisholm announced that, after months of criss-crossing the country and after a pledge to get his French-language skills up to snuff, he came to the realization that the leader of the gov-

ernment-in-waiting needed to be able to parlez Francais on day one, not after a period of intense cramming. Part of the reason for Chisholm’s decision could be polling in Quebec, which shows the NDP losing ground. Even with interim Francophone leader, Nycole Turmel of Gatineau the party’s Orange Crush appears to be receding. A second poll out this week by Nanos Research for CTV and the Globe

and Mail has found that the party’s popularity in La Belle Province has slipped from 37.7 per cent to 33.4, with the Bloc Quebecois the main beneficiary. A unilingual Anglophone leading a party whose major seat strength comes from Quebec will probably have as much chance of electoral success as an unilingual coach has of remaining at the helm of the Montreal Canadians. If anyone knows about

(almost) winning an election, and leading an official opposition, amongst the current crop of NDP leadership hopefuls, it’s Chisholm. For the NDP, this year has been a frustrating one, and Chisholm knows frustration when he sees it. While the NDP soared to new heights this year under the late, charismatic Jack Layton, the official opposition was thrown into limbo when he lost his battle with cancer in August, Back in 1998, Chisholm came agonizingly close to power. As the leader of the Nova Scotia NDP, voters flipped a coin – and it landed

on its side. His NDP won 19 seats, the exact same number as the Liberals. Parliamentary convention saw to it that the incumbent Liberals got another crack at governing, with Progressive Conservative support. Chisholm’s decision to drop out of the federal NDP leadership race because of his French problem now throws some light on Ottawa Centre MP Paul Dewar and AbitibiJames Bay-Nunavik-Eeyou MP Romeo Saganash, who have problems with French and English respectively. Dewar’s French is passable, good even, but not great. Saganash has struggled in the

debates to express himself well in English. This is not a moot point. Remember back in 2006 and the Liberal leadership race. The joke question going around was, “How good is Stephane Dion’s English? About as good as Gerard Kennedy’s French,” a sop at the linguistic skills, or lack thereof, of both candidates. Then, at the convention, it was Kennedy who helped put Dion over the top. One of Dion’s oft-repeated, shortcomings as leader? Canadians had trouble understanding him – in either language.

Spaced out in the ‘burbs CHARLES GORDON Funny Town According to the usual deadly-accurate computer projections, the seven-billionth human being has been born. This has implications that none of us can really understand. However many people now suspect that there will soon be seven billion people living in their neighbourhood. This is because of intensification, a policy that has taken on the properties of sacred cow in many cities, including this one. The idea, which has great surface plausibility, is that cities should encourage more people to live in central areas. They will do this by planning and zoning. This will prevent ugly urban sprawl with all the costs that go along with it. The central area will flourish with all its new residents, who will not clog the streets with their cars because they will use public transit. What a nice city we would have if all this were to come true. But it probably won’t. We will continue to have sprawl and it will coincide with more crowded central area neighbourhoods and more cars and more unhappy people. And why would that be? Because the usual deadly-accurate reading of human nature says that intensification flies in the face of it. The human nature in question is the Canadian variety. Canadians have always had lots of space and have always enjoyed that. The experts tell us we don’t need all that space but average Canadians might not agree. They want enough room to swing a cat, as somebody’s grandmother used to say. You know that for yourself. Take a trip to some crowded country in Europe or the Third World and the first thing you want to do when you come home is to stretch out, walk down the

street without dodging people, park your car without having to drive five kilometres away, go out in the yard and enjoy the fact that you have a yard. You also like the look of space. You like to see the sky, the tops of trees. Somebody puts an apartment building where the sky used to be and you don’t say, “Oh, goody! Intensification.” This is why all those neighbourhood fights are taking place and it’s why people are still moving to the ’burbs. People like space and they see that there still seems to be lots of it. They grew up wanting space of their own and now they want to enjoy it. Against them are the planners and urbanization experts who say this is the wrong way to live. They picture a new urban utopia and can’t understand why everyone else doesn’t see it too. Everyone else does see it, in a way. It’s probably fair to say that most people agree in principle with the idea of intensification. They would just prefer that intensification take place on somebody else’s street. From the point of view of human nature, another problem is that the chief beneficiaries of intensification may not exist. The idea is predicated on the notion of a new generation of urbanites, who like to live in low-rise apartments, eschew the automobile and take the bus everywhere. Are there enough such people around to make the theory work? Do you know any yourself? If you do, they might be rich because many of the new intensified dwellings that are springing up are for people who have lots of money. To many Ottawans, then, intensification means rich people moving into tall buildings in the neighbourhood and blocking the sky. And one more thing: since the transit system is still somewhat less than perfect, those rich people are going to be bringing their cars. Meanwhile, people who can’t afford the intensified lifestyle or want enough room to swing a cat will continue to buy single-family dwellings in the suburbs, which means more development and more cars driving downtown. Imagine how much worse it’s going to get when we are eight billion.

Resident rallies communities to oppose convention centre screen michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news – An Old Ottawa East resident is reaching out to fellow Ottawans with a petition opposing the installation of a large digital screen on the side of the new convention centre. The National Capital Commission approved the screen at a board of directors meeting on June 29. Less than pleased with the decision, Steve Furr began his opposition to the plans by reaching out to the Old Ottawa East Community Association and residents in neighbouring communities, such as Sandy Hill and Centretown, for support. “Whatever perspective you look at, it just doesn’t make sense,” Furr said. He said installing a large digital screen on the side of the Ottawa Convention Centre is a horrible idea. Following a presentation by Furr on Dec. 20, many of the Old Ottawa East Community Association’s board members, including president John Dance, agreed to support Furr’s opposition campaign. “I was surprised that everyone’s reaction was the same,” Furr said. The NCC pilot project has now moved into the evaluation process. Marie Lemay, chief executive of the NCC, said during this process, any public concerns will be ad-

dressed. The three-year digital sign pilot project was approved after a two-and-a-halfhour long deliberation by the NCC board of directors. As for Furr, he is working to ensure those concerns are heard loud and clear. “It is a work in progress, but every little bit helps,” he said. Furr is conduction both an online and a physical petition to reach out to as many people as possible. “I have no idea of the timeline,” Furr said of the process leading up to the signs installation. “There is an alarming trend of lack of transparency (with the NCC) and I am worried they may just erect it and work out the details later.” Furr, whose house looks on to the canal, admits he has a vested interest in making sure the screens are not put up, but Dance pointed out it should be something that concerns all Ottawa residents, as people travel from all over to skate on the canal. “You have to wonder why they are going ahead with this,” Dance said. “Skating on the canal is so beautiful; the first thing you want to see is not going to be a big bright sign.” The city is currently running its own digital screen pilot project, with the closest screen 4.5 kilometres away from downtown. The city’s project imposes limitations on illumination,

frequency, scrolling, rolling, fading in and out, blinking or giving the impression of movement in regards to

public safety. The digital screen for the convention centre does not have limitations at this time.

Such considerations will be part of the next stage of the project’s implementation. City council will still have

to vote on the approval of the screen. Once installed, the screen will operate from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day.

Newcomers to city find haven in Ottawa club Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland. com

EMC news – The Ottawa Newcomers Club provides an instant community for women moving to the national capital. The club is part of an international network of newcomers clubs, meant to welcome women moving to new locales. Ottawa president Susanna D’Arcy said that women moving around with their husbands often get left out of the community men find with their colleagues – so the newcomers club is way for women to form bonds outside of family obligations. “We also have a lot of women who moved to Ottawa because this is where their children or grandchildren live and they want to have something outside of that,” D’Arcy said. The club accepts members who are new to the Ottawa

area and the club boasts about 60 or 70 members at any time. There is also an auxiliary club of former members. “People often want to keep the connections they made in the initial club,” D’Arcy said, adding the auxiliary club has hundreds of members. She found out about the club from her sister, who moved around Canada and the U.S. because of her husband’s career, so D’Arcy said she decided to give it a try after moving to the Ottawa area from Oakville, Ont. Because the groups are all volunteer-led, D’Arcy said it’s a tight-knit community. D’Arcy said that it enables her to see all of the city, rather than sticking to her neighbourhood in Rockcliffe. She is currently taking bridge lessons and meets for games off of Woodroffe Avenue, and also participates in the group’s craft and chat

Marion Stevens, Yvonne Machika, Maureen Fellett, Valerie Ward, Marion Ross and Edwina Kohler are all members of the Ottawa Newcomers Club, hailing from as far away as England and Alberta. – which is once a month when members meet to knit or do needlework. “Some women just come to chat,” D’Arcy said. Sandra Browne, who hails from Newfoundland, is the

convener of the Ottawa club’s out and about group. She said monthly she polls the other members to explore local landmarks. A trip to the Royal Canadian Mint on Sussex Avenue

in December proved to be a thrill for a small contingent of the club. “I try to pick things with historic significance,” Browne said. The mint, which originally opened in 1908, definitely provided a interesting historical specimen for the seven women who could eke out the time between Christmas shopping and family obligations. “I knew it would be a small number because of the time of year,” Browne said. “But I think we all really got something out of it.” A tour through the mint showcased the medals from the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games and the currency the Canadian mint makes for other countries. Back at the gift shop; the ladies perused the merchandise and tried lifting a 11-kilogram gold bar. Valerie Ward, who grew up

in Alberta and is now living in the west-end neighbourhood of Carlingwood, said that she learned a lot during the mint visit. She moved to Ottawa to be close to her son and his family and said she gets a lot of out of being a member of the club. Maureen Fellett had lived in Ottawa before, but lived London, England, for the last 20 years. Marion Stevens, from Richmond Hill, Ont. moved to Ottawa to be close to her five grandchildren, and said the club provides a nice outlet. “I am also a member of the active living group at my condo,” she said. “You’re starting a new life somewhere else and you need to have a social circle.” The club is always taking new members and information can be found at www. newcomersclub.com or by calling 613-860-0548.

Uncle Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dress suits made for wonderful sewing creations EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mother admitted that she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much of a sewer. And yet her old treadle singer machine was used almost daily. She made many of the clothes we wore, and it never occurred to us to criticize her for the job she did. She did the best she could. And I know now that it mustnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been an easy task to turn bleached flour bags into middy blouses, bloomers, and school dresses. But she learned

early that sewing was something she had to master. As well as the flour bag fashions, Mother sometimes was able to afford an odd piece of print from Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store in Renfrew. It came on big fat bolts, and sold for 25 cents a yard. She would buy a yard when money permitted, and the bright print would offer a welcomed relief to the stark white of the bleached flour bags. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d end up with a band of

Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories BY MARY COOK

colour around our bloomer legs, or in the collars and cuffs on our blouses and dresses. And if there was enough left over, Mother would make big floppy bows which sat across the top of my sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and my head like a folded newspaper. We thought the bows were wonderful. And always in the hand-medown boxes that came twice a year from Aunt Lizzie in Regina would be one or two of Uncle Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-worn but still good dress suits. Uncle Jack was a conductor on the CPR and we thought he and Aunt Lizzie must surely be the most wealthy people in Regina to send us so many clothes that they or their two sons no longer fancied. And because Uncle Jack was short and stocky, and my three brothers were tall and lean, the dress suits never fitted anyone. They probably would have fitted father if Mother knew how to alter them down. But she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. And besides Father was as short as Uncle Jack but he was as slight as a reed. And he always thought the suits were much too grand to wear to the Lutheran church which was just about the only place Father ever considered important enough to wear some-

thing other than his bib overalls. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean for a minute that the suits werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put to good use. Mother would take every last stitch of sewing out of the suits until there was just a pile of pieces. The buttons would be put in the button box, and the lining handled with the same care as the suits themselves. Audrey and I were often pressed into service, and it was a job neither of us minded. Mother would use the big cutting scissors, Audrey the barbering sheers, and I would use the little cuticle scissors which I was not allowed to touch at any other time. Once the entire suit was taken apart, and all the pieces examined closely to see that there were no holes anywhere. Mother would order Audrey to set up the ironing board. This was simply a wide board which Father tapered at one end, and Mother padded with old long underwear and the whole thing covered with a flour bag case. The ironing board was set on the backs of two kitchen chairs, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we ever owned one that stood on its own until long after we moved from the farm. Mother would dampen a tea towel and every piece of the suit would

be pressed flat on the wrong side to get rid of all the wrinkles and seams. And what she ended up with, was a pile of material that no longer resembled Uncle Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suit which had come in the handme-down box from Regina. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure there were store bought patterns available, but I never knew Mother to have any. Instead she used big pieces of heavy brown paper that come into the house with our weekly supplies. She would take an old skirt we had worn until it was threadbare, and placing it out flat on a piece of Uncle Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suit, she would cut all around it until she had a reasonable resemblance to the original skirt. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think she did much pinning. If the old skirt fit us, she was sure the new one would fit just as well. Audrey and I longed for a zipper in the side. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever recall having a zipper in anything all the time we lived on the farm. Instead, Mother would flap the side piece over, cut out a hole for the button, dig out a button from the button box, turn up the hem, and we were usually able to wear the skirt the next day. She never used the right side of the material, and for that Audrey and I were grateful. Because Uncle Jack had a passion for wide striped suits, and both my sister and I knew that anything made from wide striped woollen material back in the 30s would immediately point to a hand-me-down. For some reason the pattern of the material seemed to be only on one side. And so the finished garment was always plain black or

navy blue...and once I remember I had a jumper that was brown, and if I turned it inside out, it would be plain to see that Uncle Jack had parted with a brown and beige tweed suit. So Audrey and I were always grateful that Mother elected to use the inside of the material in our makeovers. There was never enough material to make pants for my brothers, which they lamented about for years. Once Emerson insisted on trying on a loud plaid suit that had come in the box. He said it fitted him perfectly. Mother made him go upstairs in the hall to look in the mirror to see how ridiculous he looked with the legs almost to his knees and the sleeves ending at his elbow. At the time Emerson announced he hated Uncle Jack and said he belonged in a circus because he was so short. The things Mother made from Uncle Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothes never quite fitted us right. Mother had trouble getting the hems even so that they were either too short in the front, or too long in the back. The waist bands were bulky, and any attempt she made at creating anything as fancy as a pleat always ended up in a disaster. But to Audrey and me, our made over clothes were marvelous. We hid the waists with our sweaters, and hoisted the skirts in the front and tugged at the backs to make them even. It mattered not to us that the material had once be worn on a distant uncleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back. To us the ill-fitting clothes were brand new and very much a symbol of the 30s.

How to disinfect water in case You can tell a good recipe from the spills on the page of an emergency EMC News - When a weather emergency occurs, the effects can prove devastating. Natural disasters like hurricanes have turned cities upside down, floods have caused the deaths of thousands and snowstorms have shut communities down for days. A weather emergency, be it a natural disaster or a heavy storm, can contaminate the local supply of drinking water and disrupt the wastewater disposal system. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, such a disruption or contamination can directly threaten a person’s health. As a result, it’s important for men and women to know how to disinfect their drinking water should an emergency occur and the supply be at risk. The easiest way to avoid health issues that arise from a contaminated water supply is to keep plenty of bottled water on hand and use as drinking water and when cooking. So long as the bottled water has not been exposed to flood waters, it will be safe to drink. If an emergency strikes and you don’t have any bottled water at home,

don’t panic. Boiling water can help make the water safe, killing most types of disease-causing organisms that might be present. Boil water for one minute before allowing it cool and then store in containers for later use. In an emergency situation, the water could very well be cloudy. This is also not a cause for panic. Instead, filter the water through clean cloths or just allow it to settle. When allowed to settle, chances are the cloudy water will clear up within minutes. Once it does, use the clear water when boiling. If there’s no means to boiling the water, you can use household bleach as a disinfectant. Bleach is effective at killing some, but not all, disease-causing organisms that might be in the water. If the water is cloudy, filter it through clean cloths or allow it to settle before attempting to disinfect it. Once the water is clear, use this clear water for disinfection. When ready to disinfect the water, the EPA recommends adding 1/8 teaspoon (or roughly eight drops) of regular, unscented liquid household bleach for each

gallon of water. Do not use non-chlorine bleach to disinfect water. Once added, stir the bleach and water mixture well, then let it stand for 30 minutes before use. Once disinfected, store the water in clean containers with covers. The treated water should have a slight odor of chlorine. If it does not, repeat the process and allow the water to stand for an additional 15 minutes. After this step, if the treated water exhibits a strong odor of chlorine or tastes strongly of chlorine, allow the water to stand exposed to the air for a few hours or pour the water from one clean container to another several times. For those who rely on well water, in the case of a flood have the water tested and disinfected once the flood waters have receded. Should a weather emergency occur and the water supply be disrupted or contaminated, heed the advice of local health departments or public water systems. More information about disinfecting water and surviving a weather emergency is available at www.epa.gov.

Chief White relishing roles as student, teacher Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news – He’s the imposing, stern face of one of the Canada’s largest municipal police forces. But few would know that Ottawa police Chief Vern White is just as comfortable in a graduation cap as he is in his police blues. In a profession that prizes a street-smart, rough-and-tumble approach, White is turning that concept on its head and making scholars out of his officers. And he is starting with himself. “Yeah, I’ve been in school for 20 years,” White said wryly. “I would paint myself as a cop. A lot of others might paint me as an academic.” He is in the final stages of his doctorate degree in leadership and public accountability. That latest chapter follows a long history of learning that began with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and psychology from Acadia University and a diploma in business administration. He followed that up with a master’s degree in conflict analysis and man-

agement (his thesis was on restorative justice) from Royal Roads University in British Columbia. “When I joined the police, I didn’t have a degree, and I didn’t know I could actually get one. “I see the importance of continuous learning,” White said, and it’s an attitude he tries to pass on to his troops, no matter how much he might get teased for it. But White doesn’t constrain his academic pursuits to his own learning. He has been passing on his knowledge to others through guest lectures and university courses for several years, and now he has taken it to a new level. In 2008, White worked with his doctoral university, Charles Sturt University in Australia, to develop an undergraduate program specifically for Ottawa Police Service officers. So far, 16 have enrolled in the two-year program, two classes have graduated and the program is now being opened up to officers from other police forces. It focuses on criminal justice and has recently been made available to police of-

Most of the program is done online, with the final course at the university (at the officer’s expense). He also teaches a master’slevel online course in global law enforcement for Charles Sturt. Locally, White is a familiar face in classrooms at both Carleton University and the

University of Ottawa as a professor at the graduate and undergraduate levels. “I enjoy the interaction with young people in particular,” White said. “I do find I learn a lot about finding solutions in other ways, from people who haven’t already decided what the solution is.” The chief is also making a name for himself across the

globe as an international lecturer and as a professor. In his four or five weeks of “vacation” time, White travels to places like India, Dominica and Alaska. It started in 1998, after someone heard him speak at a community problem solving forum when he was in the RCMP in the Yukon. That led to a speaking gig in Alaska,

and White never looked back. “I learn something every day,” White said about his globe-trotting lecturing. “I will bring back some different thinking,” he said. His most recent jaunt took him way out of his comfort zone, to the Chinese Peoples’ Police University in Beijing. White was ready for a culture clash as he addressed halls of up to 160 policing students and senior police officials on topics such as police accountability and transparency and community mobilization. “It’s a little more difficult there because things like possession of 50 grams of cocaine is a death penalty. So having a discussion around addictions is challenging,” he said. “When they talk about human rights issues, it’s really interesting because they talk about law and justice. It’s their job to hold up the law. If the law changed and the justice system was different, they would uphold it differently,” White said. “I spoke really openly about what I see as the changes in policing needed (in order to be successful),” he added. Community engagement is the missing piece in China, but it’s a philosophical difference White said he feels almost anywhere he travels, including Australia. White said lecturing is the best way to teach other cops about his approach to policing. “Sometimes you really do have to get the message out one lecture at a time.”

Pet Adoptions PET OF THE WEEK ANIMALS OF CHRISTMAS DUSTY Dusty, is a much-loved five-year-old pet parrot that flew the coop when he was spooked by the sound of a loud plane overhead. He went missing from his family’s home for two weeks this past summer. The family was devastated and feared that he would never return. Two weeks later, Dusty was found and brought to the OHS. A joyous reunion with his owners soon followed thanks to the dedicated OHS staff.

O.C. (for Orange Cat) is five years old, and one of the longest residents at the OHS. O.C. was brought to the shelter as a stray last July. Over those five months, shelter staff have come to know this orange tabby very well and observed that he’s definitely a loner. With that in mind, and in order to keep him relaxed and happy to receive visitors at the shelter, O.C. is now housed in a cat condo all his own while he waits patiently for a forever home.

This four-year-old Collie/German Shepherd mix was transferred from another shelter to the OHS. Robyn is always on the go! She’s very intelligent and active, but while in the Adoption Centre, the OHS Canine Behaviour Specialist observed that she was becoming more and more restless and stressed. To keep her busy and stimulated, an enrichment program was developed for her. OHS volunteer dog walkers implemented the program and successfully worked with Robyn to keep her relaxed and to teach her basic commands, until she was adopted into her forever home.

KRINGLE

Kringle is a three-month-old Great Dane mix who was recently rescued by the OHS RIS team following a call from a member of the public who spotted him loose and injured in the neighbourhood. Kringle couldn’t stand or walk when he was brought in. He had bumps and small lesions on his snout and was in a great deal of pain. The OHS veterinarian gave him pain medication and diagnosed him with an uncommon condition, known as Juvenile Cellulitis. He was immediately treated with medication for this condition and Kringle is now recuperating in the home of a foster volunteer and will continue to be monitored by the OHS veterinarian until he’s ready for his own forever home.

Make an active lifestyle part of your new year Sumbitted by the City of Ottawa

With the new year upon us, make it a resolution to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. Register for a sports program or make it double fun by signing a friend or family member up as well. Registrations are accepted year-round for our sports leagues and skills classes. Whatever your interests, from soccer and volleyball to dragon boating and hiking, City of Ottawa City Wide Sports ensures that nobody is left on the sidelines! Get in the game and play the real sport! ACTIVE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL AGES

The City of Ottawa’s City Wide Sports and Girls ’n’ Women and Sport programs provide quality, fun and safe opportunities for participation and development in sports and physical activity. We organize classes, leagues, tournaments, girls only, women only, boys only, co-ed and 50-plus activities throughout the city. Never played? Has it been a while? Join our Never Too Late sport skill development

classes. Learn new skills in a fun and social atmosphere. Get a group of eight or more friends or co-workers together and have a sport party. Girls ’n’ Women and Sport was endorsed after a 1983 survey determined that girls participated 60 per cent less than males in group oriented activities and competitions. Since that day, programs have flourished, giving sport opportunities to many young girls and women. We provide a safe place where girls can be girls, and have fun while getting active and fit. Over 6,000 females have participated in our affordable, accessible sport opportunities. We have a sport for you. The Active Living Club plans activities for men and women who are age 50 plus. Join the group for hiking in the Gatineau hills, cycling tours, snowshoeing and crosscountry skiing outings. Make new friends keeping active and healthy at a comfortable pace while exploring our city. Make sure you mark your calendar to have some sport

fun in February. City Wide Sports partners with KidSport Ottawa to make after-school sports programs possible for disadvantaged children and youth. Grants and donations to KidSport ensure that “no kid is left on the sidelines” by providing registration and equipment grants to qualifying children and youth to play organized sport. On Feb. 4, City Wide Sports will be hosting a women’s and co-ed indoor volleyball tournament, with prizes, treats, and fun times. On Feb. 11, the second annual Polar Bear Hockey Tournament will take place on the City of Ottawa outdoor rinks. Both these tournaments raise money for KidSport Ottawa, while sharing good times during our great Canadian winter. Visit citywidesportsottawa.ca to find sport program and league information or call 613-680-2854 and speak to a staff member. Make 2012 your year to choose sport and activity with the City of Ottawa parks, recreation and culture services.
