Fitness Depot: Dedicated to Your Fitness and Health by Brian Turner

As the old year ends and the new approaches, more than a few of us will take a look in the mirror and decide it’s time to shape up. Maybe we’ll join a gym, but many of us will look to purchase home exercise equipment as a more convenient, comfortable, and private alternative to fitness club membership. But where to turn? Which elliptical, treadmill, rower, or exercise bike to buy? It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of websites, media ads, and avalanches of flyers overflowing our mailboxes. It’s also very easy to choose the wrong piece of equipment, that no matter how often you use it or how well designed it is, won’t deliver the results you’re looking for. And of course there’s the risk of injury because you didn’t get the appropriate advice you needed before purchasing a piece of fitness equipment that your body or physical condition isn’t suited for. Fitness Depot has been providing solutions to all these problems and concerns for over 20 years in Ottawa and their long list of satisfied and physically fit clients provide strong testament to their customercentered way of doing business. First, all of the associates you’ll meet at either Fitness Depot location (499 Industrial Ave in the east or 255 Kanata Ave in the west) are experts on the products and accessories they offer. They have been specifically trained by North America’s major fitness equipment manufacturers and receive continual education and updates on new designs and features. They are all fulltime employees and were chosen because of their commitment to physical fitness and excellent customer service. Second, if you want to try any of Fitness Depot’s equipment or products before you buy, it’s as easy as riding a bike because they’re all set up in their comfortable and roomy facilities for demo purposes. There’s no guessing from looking at a picture on the box or at some video as to whether or not you’re choosing the right product. Fitness Depot’s staff also take the time to ask the right questions to make sure that what you buy is right for you and other members of your family who might use it, and for your home. There’s no use getting the perfect home gym system if it won’t fit in your family or exercise room. In fact in most cases the associate you first meet will be the one to guide you through choosing and purchasing the right equipment and accessories to accompanying the delivery truck to your home to ensure a done-right-the-first-time set-up and to make sure you’re completely comfortable with all the features and operations.

And since they’re a depot, they carry everything they offer in stock and can arrange most installations on a same-day basis. Why wait days or weeks when you want to start your new life now? Some us of will enter Fitness Depot for the first time after being gym or club members and will be pleasantly surprised to find the same reputable major brands that our fitness club uses. Fitness Depot’s equipment suppliers are very carefully chosen and only ship to specialty retailers. You don’t have to be a fitness veteran to recognize names like LifeFitness, Precor, or Octane just to name a few. And commercial gyms and clubs also purchase their equipment from Fitness Depot. So the same expert associates that local gyms rely on, are there to serve you as well. And they’re happy to handle special orders for those rare occasions when someone is looking for a hard to find item that isn’t normally stocked. More than a few of us have experienced (or know someone who has) the difficulty that can arise when a fitness machine requires service or repair. With purchases from some retailers, the only choice is to package it up and send it back. But Fitness Depot runs a complete service centre in Ottawa that’s as close as your computer mouse. And since they offer their own in-house extended service plans, affordable peace of mind comes along with professional technicians. Whether it’s a simple adjustment or minor repair, or part replacement, it’s all part of Fitness Depot’s A to Z white-glove customer service. For Ottawa’s truly largest selection of fitness equipment and gear at the guaranteed lowest prices, with service that’s as fit as a fiddle, there really is only one choice with two great locations: Fitness Depot. East end manager Paul Riley and west end’s Kevin DeForge and their very physical teams are on site and on track Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 pm. You can reach them by phone at 613-247-8888 (East) or 613-591-8988 (West). Their website at www.fitnessdepotottawa.com has full details and specs on everything they sell. Good quality home fitness equipment means a long term relationship that brings much more value than flashy offers on unknown brands. With Fitness Depot, nothing’s holding you back from a fit future.

Thousands of players, 380 teams compete in nation’s largest atom hockey tournament Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC sports - More than 6,500 players were set to hit the ice on hockey rinks in Ottawa for the 14th edition of the Bell Capital Cup. The competition ran from Dec. 28 to Jan. 1 with the opening ceremonies, Bell Capital Cup Fanfest and Esso Friendly Games held on Dec. 27 at the Bell Sensplex in Kanata. “This National Capital Region hockey extravaganza continues to showcase great minor hockey action, skills competitions and the Scotiabank/Canadian Tire all-star games,” said Scott Lawryk, general manager of the Bell Capital Cup, in a press release. The city played host to 380 teams from 19 divisions for the annual atom and peewee hockey tournament. This year, teams from Canada, China, Finland, Germany and the United States vied to hoist the Allen J. MacDonald Memorial Trophy. The EMC went to press before the championship games were held. “On behalf of the board of directors and our many volunteers, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the minor hockey associations and administrators, players and families who continue to take part in the Bell Capital Cup and build on what is a splendid foundation for this annual holiday tournament,” said Lawryk.

Contest looks to find Ottawa’s best cooks Non-chefs face off with sweet treats and savoury dishes from home kitchens Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Centretown’s chefs don’t all earn their living in the kitchen. They range from graduate students to parents, and the best of the non-professionals will face-off on Jan. 12 at 6 p.m. at Babylon on Bank Street. It’s all part of the My Neighbourhood Bites events, being held in various locations across the city over the coming months.

The event is organized by Taboo Eats’ Donna Henhoeffer, who puts the call out for amateur cooks to enter their neighbourhoods’ cook off. Everyone who enters is invited to a judging event, where they show up with two portions of their dish. From there, the best dishes advance to the public event. That means that, along with a team to assist them, the cooks are asked to create several hundred samples in a full commercial kitchen. Henhoeffer, who has man-

aged a catering company, sets up the commercial kitchen and helps the cooks adjust the recipes to be made in large amounts to be sample friendly. The sheer size of the batches can be overwhelming for someone whose biggest meal probably doesn’t exceed a traditional family Christmas dinner. There is no entry fee and all the ingredients for the big night are provided for them. “They can do something with just a great recipe,” Henhoeffer said. “It’s an opportunity for people to be creative.” On Dec. 17, a variety of dishes came forward, ranging

from a halibut taco to a vegan cheesecake. The people behind the dishes were just as diverse, including Emel Isilgan, whose son entered her in the event – and told her only two hours before the competition. She made a Middle Eastern rice and chicken dish called kabsa, which she learned to cook while living in Saudi Arabia. Isilgan said she often would host a variety of European friends who would ask her how to make her Middle Eastern dishes, leading to impromptu cooking lessons in her kitchen. See TOP, page 15

Fire leaves nine people homeless in Greenboro The Hope Volleyball Tournament, a spike in demand at food banks, a W-League Championship win by the Ottawa Fury women’s soccer team ... 2012 was an eventful year in south Ottawa. In this week’s issue, we look back over the last six months of news stories covered in the Ottawa South EMC. JULY

• A fire left nine people homeless in Greenboro on Canada Day. Ottawa’s fire department received multiple 911 calls reporting smoke coming from a home on Ashpark Crescent on Sunday, July 1 around 10:42 p.m. When firefighters arrived, they discovered the flames had spread in the five-unit row complex. The blaze left nine people homeless from two of the units. The residents of the other three were told they could return to their homes once the fire was brought under control. • Ottawa’s Oluseyi Smith won a spot on Canada’s men’s 4x100-metre relay team head-

ing to the 2012 London Olympics this summer. The Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club member won a bronze medal at the track and field trials held in Calgary on July 1, running the 100-metre dash with a career-best time of 10:22 seconds. • Gloucester-South Nepean Coun. Steve Desroches was working hard to position south Ottawa as a key film destination. On July 10, Desroches took Invest Ottawa film, television and digital media commissioner Genevieve Menard on a tour of south Ottawa with an intent of showcasing some of the area landscapes that could potentially be considered as future backdrops for production in the film and television industry, including the Rideau River and the Leitrim Wetlands and industrial park. According to Desroches, bringing the film and television industry to south Ottawa could have a tremendous impact on local businesses and is directly related to Ottawa’s newly focused economic development strategy. •

The

world’s

largest

one-day recreational volleyball tournament returned to Mooney’s Bay on July 14. HOPE Volleyball Summerfest celebrated its 30th anniversary in Ottawa in 2012. HOPE, which stands for Helping Other People Everywhere, is a volunteer-based not-forprofit organization founded in 1981 by Fred Logan, created in honour of his mother who died of cancer. • The emerald ash borer beetle is eating Ottawa’s ash trees and one city councillor was determined to educate his ward about the deadly beetle. After releasing the first of three new short videos created by his staff about the emerald scourge, Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume placed educational signs around Alta Vista with hopes of helping guide residents to the new emerald ash borer (EAB) web page put together by his office. The signs depicted a large emerald ash borer beetle and say, “The EAB Could Be In Your Tree”— the tagline for Hume’s summer emerald ash borer educational campaign. See SINGER, page 3

Other acts performing at Bluesfest that evening included the electropop act LMFAO, Charles Bradley and his Extraordinaires, Dragonette, Johnny Sansone and Monkey Junk.

Chelsea Kisil’s song Honey Doll is now selling on ITunes with all sales going towards Do It For Daron, a youth-driven initiative focused on raising awareness and inspiring conversations about youth mental health.

Singer promotes youth mental health • A seniors’ village housing program in Alta Vista will offer a “home away from homeâ€? for veterans and seniors, said Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty. The $5.4-million Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre project, funded by the federal and provincial governments, will have 139 apartments, including 45 units of affordable housing. The units will be available starting in January 2013. • A 14-year-old Riverside South singer and songwriter was using the power of music to help raise money and spread a positive message about mental health. Singer Chelsea Kisil said music can be a positive force and has released a song with a positive message about mental health. Kisil’s song Honey Doll was selling on iTunes with all sales going towards Do It For Daron (DIFD), a youth-driven initiative focused on raising awareness and inspiring conversations about youth mental health. • Work started in July to install two new play structures at Dunlop Public School in South Keys. There are two play structures: one for kindergarten students and the

other for use by primary grades students. The school’s parent council collected more than $15,000 for the project, raising the money with several fundraisers over the past seven years, including pizza, chocolate, bake and book sales as well as from donations from parents • After four trips to the ďŹ nals over the past 13 years, the Ottawa Fury won their ďŹ rstever W-League Championship at Algonquin College Soccer Complex on Sunday, July 29. Nepean native Jasmine Phillips stopped two penalty kicks as the Fury went on to beat the Pali Blues, a team that went undefeated during the regular season, 4-3 on penalty kicks. AUGUST

• Construction work was underway to add new classrooms at Steve MacLean Public School. The permanent expansion would add three kindergarten rooms and six regular classrooms to the school with completion currently scheduled for early 2013. The addition will help the school meet the demand for full-day kindergarten and elementary enrolment in Riverside South.

• The skies around Rockcliffe were full from Aug. 15 to 18 with some of Canada’s

top amateur pilots competing to win the prestigious Webster trophy at the Rockcliffe Flying Club. Twenty-nine-yearold Andrea Lane Marrocco, from the Ottawa Flying Club represented eastern Ontario. • Hundreds of Heron Gate residents were mistakenly threatened with eviction in August due to an administrative error. Many of the tenants said they received notices falsely accusing them of not paying their rent in July. The new owners of the highrises, Timbercreek Asset Management, admitted there were a large number of inaccurate eviction notices handed out and suspect their rent may have gone to the complex’s previous owner, TransGlobe Property Management Services.

Premier calls for freeze on teachers wages Continued from page 3

• The Ontario government needs to hit the pause button on teachers’ wage increases if it wants to maintain jobs and continue to roll out full-day kindergarten, said Premier Dalton McGuinty during a press conference held at St. Luke’s Catholic School in Alta Vista on Friday, Aug. 17. McGuinty toured St. Luke’s, where the school’s principal showed two classrooms that were being built for the introduction of full-day kindergarten starting this September. • McLean Co-operative Home in Blossom Park celebrated the installation of 11kilowatt solar panels on the roof of the four-storey building during a ceremony on Aug. 23. Since the installation of the panels, the co-operative said it had already started to generate revenue from the project.

• During the summer of 2012, 256 teens were able to find summer employment through the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa’s summer jobs program. The youth services bureau (YSB) ran three days of workshops for the youth, who came from lower-income Ottawa neighbourhoods, to learn resume and interview skills before they applied for jobs with businesses that are members of the program. SEPTEMBER

• A food bank in Alta Vista was overwhelmed with a spike in demand for assistance coming from the community this year. The Heron Emergency Food Centre said it served 13,059 clients in 2009. In 2011, that number jumped to 16,381 clients, representing a 29 per cent increase. And the number of clients continues to rise, said Louisa Simms,

executive co-ordinator of the food bank.

• Ottawa public school students staged walkouts in September in an effort to fight for their own rights following a protest by teachers that has led to the postponement of after-school clubs. The student protests were held at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School, Merivale High School, John McCrae Secondary School, Cedarview Middle School and Sir Robert Borden Secondary School.

• The Ottawa Hospital Foundation kicked off a fundraiser on Sept. 27 to support the expansion of the Civic Campus’ breast health centre. The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre needed more space and equipment to serve its growing list of clients, said Dr. Jean Seely, head of breast imaging at The Ottawa Hospital. The health centre has seen a 40 per cent increase in its number of patients since it opened 14 years ago, said Seely.

Painter Robert Bateman visits school named after him The event will feature the top 10 women teams from around the globe vying for the world championship. • A Riverside Park woman with chronic blood cancer spearheaded the 2012 Light the Night walk, an event that raises money to help find a cure for leukemia and other blood cancers. On Oct. 13, Lesia Maruschak joined thousands of people walking in twilight carrying illuminated balloons from the Marion Dewar Plaza outside city hall to Pretoria Bridge and back. • In a surprise move after nine years as premier of Ontario, on Oct. 15 Ottawa South MPP Dalton McGuinty announced he was stepping down as premier. The 57year-old was the first provincial premier who called Ottawa home. • The Ottawa police were concerned about a spike in the number of break and enters in south Ottawa and were asking residents to be on the alert. In October, thieves were targeting the residential area south of the Ottawa Hospital’s General campus and appear to be focusing on homes under renovation or residences that have contracted renovation companies, according to police. “It looks like there is a pattern of break and enters primarily to sheds and trailers in the Elmavale Acres and Alta Vista area,” said Const. Gary McCoy, community police officer at the South Ottawa Community Police Centre. • With a potential provincial election looming, the Party for People with Special Needs has plans of running a candidate in all of Ontario’s 108 ridings. “We are expanding to all 108 ridings in Ontario. We want to spread the word and we are looking for candidates in all ridings,” said John Redins, one of the nine candidates from the Party for People with Special Needs who ran in the last provincial election. In the 2011 election, Redins took on Liberal Ottawa South candidate and Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty and ended up garnering 238 votes. The party has fielded candidates in two provincial elections to help raise awareness of issues affecting people with disabilities. NOVEMBER

• A sparse turnout and series of lengthy thank-you speeches characterized a lowkey 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. • The debate over a large increase to make OC Transpo’s U-Pass “revenue neutral” was the lone contentious issue before city council approved its 2012 budget. Council passed the 2.39 per cent tax increase unanimously, which comes as little surprise. Barely any changes were made to the draft budgets presented on Oct. 26, with the exception of a few amendments to correct errors or to shuffle small amounts of cash between programs. • Business groups see a new tax-holiday plan as a way to boost job creation in Orléans and on Carling Avenue, but some councillors worry the strategy could put other areas of the city at a disadvantage. As part of a broad update to the city’s economic development strategy presented to the finance committee on Nov. 6, the city’s director of economic development and innovation, Saad Bashir, revealed a plan to provide tax incentives for businesses to come to areas that need economic stimulus or redevelopment. • Hallways at Robert Bateman Public School were turned into an art gallery, as staff and students prepared for a visit by the man the building is named after. The 82-yearold renowned Canadian artist and conservationist was at the school on Nov. 6 to discuss the importance of conservation and the simple pleasure of experiencing the outdoors. “My aim here is to get kids to fall in love with nature,” said Bateman. • Four-time water polo Olympian and long-time coach David Hart was honoured with a major national award by the Coaching Association of Canada. The 60year-old former Alta Vista resident was presented with the Geoff Gowan award for his lifetime contribution to coaching development on Nov. 12. Still a talent scout and mentor for the national men’s and women’s water polo teams, Hart said it was hard to put into words how special the award was to him. • Frank Licari was given the Mayor’s City Builder Award in recognition of his many years of volunteering within the Ridgemont community. Mayor Jim Watson and River Coun. Maria McRae presented the award to Licari on Nov. 28, recognizing him for his 30-year commitment to Ridgemont Community Association, which he serves as president. “I was totally surprised, thrilled and very humbled. I never even knew that I was on the list of those to be chosen,” said Licari. DECEMBER

Carolyn Kropp was shopping at the Loblaws store in Elmvale Acres last summer, when she came across the May Family Farms Back to School Program, a contest run by the grocery store and May Family Farms. “I enter all sorts of contests just to try to win stuff. This time it was specifically to win money for my school Pleasant Park Public School,” said Kropp. • More people in Gloucester-Southgate would use their bikes if cycling was made safer and improved infrastructure was provided, said the ward’s Coun. Diane Deans. Deans hosted a Better Biking forum at the Greenboro Community Centre on Dec. 4. Issues identified as major barriers to cycling discussed at the forum included: a lack of proper signage, dangerous motorists especially on Hunt Club Road, and insufficient bike parking spots. Deans held the forum to provide an opportunity for residents to share their ideas to improve cycling in her ward and in key destinations throughout the city.

Simple yet attractive design, intuitive passenger flow and integration with cycling and pedestrian facilities are key principles in the station design, according to Rideau Transit Group. • While Christmas shopping is a big part of the holiday season for many, some children in the south Ottawa area might not have had the opportunity were it not for the Cop Shop event. Christmas wishes came true for a group of 25 kids, who were paired with a police officer for an afternoon of shopping armed with a $200 gift card at the Billings Bridge Shopping Centre on Dec. 12. The experience allows officers to help

some very deserving young children buy some holiday treats for themselves and their families. • A former swimming pond in Brewer Park could be linked to the Rideau River as early as August. The land-locked pond, located at the south end of the park, was originally created as a swimming area, but has not been used such for a long time. Now the spot is frequented by dog owners, as part of an off-leash dog park. A proposal to connect the pond to the Rideau River was announced by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority on Dec. 13. A channel would be cut on the east side of the pond to allow for water from

the river to flow towards the pond. • A new casino in Ottawa, most likely in the downtown area, would mean the end of the Rideau Carleton Raceway, said Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod. MacLeod made the warning as she laid out the Ontario Progressive Conservatives position on the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp., casino expansions, and horse racing plan on Dec.14. MacLeod said Ottawa had been gripped with the possibility that the Rideau Carleton Raceway could close when the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp., and the city of Ottawa expand gaming in the downtown to include a casino.

• A vision for Ottawa’s light-rail line was becoming clearer after the city revealed its preferred builder on Dec. 5. Rideau Transit Group’s proposal shows a cohesive series of neutral-looking wood and concrete stations with modern, modular entrances. Much of the wood will come from ash trees felled by the emerald ash borer.

South Ottawa filmmakers win Best Story at Digi60 Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – Scissors, a short movie by a group of young filmmakers from south Ottawa has won Best Story at the annual Digi60 short film festival. Being a scripted contest, the group had a limited amount of time to write and produce the film. Since 2004, Digi60 has challenged Ottawa-area filmmakers to write and shoot a short digital film in 60 days. There is just one “catch” and it changes every festival. This year’s scripted catch was “a reunion”. All filmmakers are given the same set of parameters for their films and it’s up to them to use their imaginations and creativity to base their films around this “catch”. For first-time director Trevor Goulet, winning best story was wonderful. “I knew we did a very good

job but it was still surprising to win Best Story,” said Goulet, a member of the Media Tree Films. Goulet praised scriptwriter Xavier Granville for giving him a wonderful script to direct. “It was an honour to take his story and tell it,” said Goulet. Festival organizers hailed the group for making films that defy their youth. Goulet admitted that the team around him made the task of directing less daunting, as a first-time director. “Taking on a leadership role is wonderful but at the same time, there is a lot of pressure – you have a lot of people that rely on you to make the project happen,” he said. He added: “I felt very proud for my team and myself.” The festival runs on shoestring budgets, volunteers and a passion for filmmak-

ing. As a new entrant into the film industry, Goulet said awards like that are the ones that make them push forward doing what they love doing. Producing the movie without a budget was one major challenge the group faced. “Everything that went to this movie was funded by us,” said Goulet. The crew was all made up of volunteers, he said. “We are thankful to find people that were willing to donate their time, because they had faith in the project. If we had money, we would have invested it in people.” He said without people that had both passion and dedication, their project wouldn’t have been a success. Goulet added that the award will position them as capable filmmakers. “We would like eventually to shoot a feature film but we’ll definitely need a budget for that,” said Goulet.

Ottawa woman helps others Walk for Memories

jessica.cunha@metroland.com

EMC news - The Walk for Memories in support of the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County came about 17 years ago thanks to a Katimavik woman and a Nepean business. Tracey Pagé, an accountant with Collins Barrow Ottawa LLP in Bells Corners, developed the idea of the fundraising walk. The firm created a committee to choose a charity it could work with. “We talked about wanting to give back,” she said. “(To) try to align ourselves with a charity we could really, really give to.” Her grandfather had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the ’80s and at that time, it wasn’t a widely-known disease, she said.

What started off as a really small event is turning into a well known city-(wide) fundraising event. TRACEY PAGÉ WALK COMMITTEE MEMBER

“I’d never even heard the word before that,” said Pagé of the diagnosis. At the time, the Ottawa Alzheimer’s Society had no government funding so when Collins Barrow decided to join forces with a charitable organization, Pagé suggested they work with the Ottawa chapter. “They had to purely work on the donations. It was such a small budget,” she said. “They were trying to do so much with so little. I had seen the good they do.” So she set up a meeting with then executive director Kathy Wright and developed the idea of a fundraising walk. That first walk, back in 1996, raised $22,000 with 175 participants. “It was a lot of fun; it was a lot of work but we considered it a success,” said Pagé, who has been on the Walk commit-

WALK

Every year, Collins Barrow is the lead sponsor and a number of employees and retired accountants volunteer their time to co-ordinate the walk. “It’s a great, great group of people,” said Pagé. “Volunteers come year after year. They really enjoy seeing the good that’s done. “The firm jumps in with both feet to really, really try and support the Alzheimer’s Society.” All the money raised stays in the community to fund programs and respite care offered by the Alzheimer’s Society. “The funds are raised to support their programs and give the support to families that need it,” said Pagé. “I had seen how important respite care was.” This year’s walk will take place on Jan. 27, inside the Carleton University Fieldhouse. Registration begins at 9 a.m. with a warm-up at 10 a.m. followed by the walk. Pagé said hosting an indoor walk during the winter helps set the fundraiser apart from the traditional outdoor summer walks. “The day itself we just really try to make fun,” said Pagé. “(Teams) usually have a theme and to see them marching around as a group with so much spirit, usually they’re inspired by someone.” Five walking challenges from one to 10 kilometres are available. There will be music, a kids’ activity centre and refreshments, free parking, and “a few surprises,” said Pagé. TRADITION

For the second year, the Sons of Scotland pipe band will lead the first lap around the track. “It’s a really nice tradition,” said Pagé. “We’ve always had, since year one, a bagpiper lead the first lap.” The Walk for Memories first began in the Carlingwood Shopping Centre, but four years ago moved to Carleton University because the number of participants grew

That’s our biggest goal,” said Pagé. “What started off as a really small event is turning into a well known city-(wide) fundraising event.” Back in 1998, Pagé participated in the walk while she was nine months pregnant. “All of us were convinced her baby was going to be born at the event,” said Seto. “(It was) a memorable moment for us who have been around for awhile.” Her son was born less than a week later on Jan. 31. “It was a lot of fun; it was cute,” said Pagé, adding her two sons have been participating in the walk since they were born. “They’ve gone every year.” There is no registration fee to participate, but walkers are asked to raise a minimum donation of $100. There will be a special draw for anyone raising $1,000 or more on or before Jan. 27 for a chance to win two airline tickets to any destination served by Porter Airlines.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

D

ecember 2012 ended with a bang not a whimper. That is if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count the moans and whines from various residents after they were hit with two big snowstorms and 50-plus centimetres of snow. Ottawa residents havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen weather like this for years and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable that it will take some of us a little time to adjust. First and foremost, the inclement weather has been

accompanied by a rise in the cases of colds, the flu and other illnesses. But that is mostly a product of people huddling together inside and sharing their germs. The first part of any intelligent personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s survival guide for the Great Canadian Winter must begin with an old adage you probably heard from your mother: wash your hands. Wash them frequently. And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sick, stay

home and recover. Many workaholics will show up at the office even while fending off a bad bout of the bubonic plaque. While their work ethic is commendable, it only serves to spread the sickness to coworkers. Stay home, rest up and return to work recharged and healthy. But the cold weather and heaps of white stuff arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all doom and gloom. Winter is a season of play

for ski and skating enthusiasts. Owners of ski hills in Quebec and Ontario are bubbling with jubilation over the recent snowfall. Skiing on real snow, you see, is a whole new experience compared to gliding down the artificial stuff. As for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national sport, volunteers across the country are out in force clearing the ice pads and outdoor rinks to make way for the legion of children hungering

for a game of scrimmage hockey. The average 10-year-old boy or girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light up when they see the thermometer dip below zero and hear that the roads are choked with snow. Of course that can only mean one thing. A school snow day and a morning spent chasing a piece of vulcanized rubber with their buddies on the local rink. January also sees the arrival of the Bell Capital Cup, bringing together hundreds of teams, both from Ontario and Quebec and other countries and thousands of atom and

peewee-age hockey players. This year, the cup features the Capital City Condors, a team with players with intellectual and physical disabilities. For these children, the winter and the opportunity to play hockey is a thing of joy. An emotion that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help translate to the hearts of volunteers who run the team and onlookers who watch them play. For those who hate the winter, let your Grinch hearts defrost a little and take notice of the opportunities that present themselves. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

COLUMN

Planning the great Canadian event CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

T

he thing about anticipating a great event is that the event is always great in anticipation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only when it becomes a real event that it risks being disappointing. So bring on the 150th anniversary celebrations, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next big birthday, scheduled for 2017, unless government cutbacks cause it to be postponed. Already, the government is said to be putting out feelers to Canadians, asking them for ideas on how the event can be properly marked. According to reports, cross-country consultations are beginning this month. The aim is to make the 150th as memorable as the 100th was. Those who were there remember it as a pretty good one, but it might be different this time. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty difficult to imagine this government or any future one laying out the kind of dough that was spent in 1967. Expo 67 was only the biggest of many large expenditures. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the hundreds of centennial projects that were built across the country. If not for the centennial there would be empty spaces where a lot of the arenas and concert halls are in Canadian cities. Not to say that our present-day governments, at all levels, are stingy, but is there another word that describes them better? Furthermore, our taxpayers are far less adventurous in spirit than they were in 1967. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with these facts in mind that we have to consider the contribution we will make to the cross-country consultations. In order to gain government acceptance, proposals to celebrate

the 150th have to be, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say, modest in scale. Better still, they have to include provisions for corporations to pay for them. So where does that leave us, here in the capital? Under different circumstances we might think of the 150th as the perfect occasion for the unveiling of the long-discussed portrait gallery, which was once to be located across from Parliament Hill. But we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that now. Maybe, instead, a PowerPoint presentation sponsored by a bank. There are some possibilities in the idea of re-enactment. This year there were re-enactments of key battles in the War of 1812. Maybe some of that could be done in 2017, re-enactments of key moments in the national capitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, with due consideration of budgetary realities. Actors, as long as they are not paid too much, could portray Charlotte Whitton battling with city councillors, Thomas Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGee breathing his last, Pierre Elliott Trudeau walking in the snow. Developers could take time off from their busy schedule putting up new condos to restage the destruction of LeBreton Flats. Staging the reconstruction of LeBreton Flats might not be possible at the moment. Celebrations of this sort should also look forward. Peering into the future is always interesting. In 1967 it may have been imagined that the Ottawa of 2013 would have public transit flying through the air, hologram movies projected into the night sky and an enlightened government capable of anticipating the needs of the people. None of this has come true, but the exercise is still worth the effort. So letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s think about Ottawa 2117 as presented this year at Expo 17. Public transit flying through air, except in a tunnel. Hologram movies available to elite cable subscribers. One more building on the LeBreton Flats. Still no portrait gallery, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking of using the last building in the city that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a condo. In other 2117 developments, the 19-digit telephone number comes into effect, additional parking is on Mars and another bridge to the Quebec side is under active study.

Resolve to tap into your unfounded confidence

Study finds parking in Old Ottawa South sufficient Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

M

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse in an area where I’ve trained and practiced must naturally spill over into areas where I have no expertise. It’s like that scene in the movie Bridget Jones’s Diary, where, following a great first day as a television producer, Bridget has a “sneaking suspicion” she’s also a master chef. That she ends up making blue soup, orange pudding and green gunge for her birthday dinner demonstrates the folly of her thinking. But while overconfidence can be problematic, we can also take advantage of this tendency to experience new things and to keep our resolutions going beyond Jan. 31. January is a month when people are inherently optimistic. There’s something about the new year that has each of us pushing the reset button, ready for a fresh start. It’s the reason we use January as an excuse to resolve to go to the gym, quit smoking

or save more money. We all become a little nutty in January. Unfortunately, February is another type of month altogether. The confidence we felt as the calendar turned over to 2013 starts to dwindle, as we realize we’ve gained, rather than lost, weight, or that we’ve started drinking red wine in lieu of smoking. But perhaps we could use our tendency for overconfidence to carry us through. Try riding this high – on a good day, rather than reaching for a glass of wine to celebrate, head for the gym. If you experience some sort of success at work in February, try mastering a new recipe that evening in the kitchen. If you win a hockey game, try a new sport that very week. You may fail, but at least you had the confidence – or false confidence -- to try. As I say to my six-year-old, however, it’s best wear a helmet, just in case.

EMC news - The results of a parking study concerning the main three streets in Old Ottawa South found there is more than enough parking for the area. The Old Ottawa South Local Area Parking Study is a result of a motion passed at transportation committee in February 2009 when a proposal was submitted to build the Shoppers Drug Mart at the corner of Sunnyside Avenue and Bank Street. The transportation committee directed staff to look at parking supply along the west side of Bank Street and the north side of Sunnyside Avenue. The study looked only at the three major streets in Old Ottawa South: Bank, Sunnyside and Riverdale Avenue. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko said he found the study’s results acceptable. “In the end the status quo seems okay, there are moments where some merchants might find it to be busier than other times,” he said. “... but for the most part I think it’s pretty rare to hear that people have a hard time finding a spot.”

For the most part I think it’s pretty rare to hear that people are having a hard time finding a spot. DAVID CHERNUSHENKO CAPITAL WARD COUNCILLOR

Chernushenko established the Lansdowne transportation advisory committee, comprised of representatives from the Holmwood Group, the Glebe Community Association and the Glebe Business Improvement Area to identify specific transportation matters or issues related to Lansdowne. According to Doug Robertson, manager of parking operations for the city, the next steps for the parking study will be to work with

the Lansdowne transportation advisory committee, keeping them informed of developments. Robertson added staff is also recommending that the monitoring of traffic and parking be coordinated with the work of the planning and growth management department. “They are responsible for the broader traffic and parking monitoring plan for Lansdowne,” he wrote in an email. Apart from the questions that still remain around Lansdowne, Chernushenko said he was happy to read in the report that parking at the Shoppers Drug Mart is more than sufficient. “That is telling me that a lot of clients are coming by foot, which is great,” he said. The Old Ottawa South Local Area Parking Study will be submitted to the transportation committee in March 2013. To date, Old Ottawa South has had three other parking studies completed. According to this latest study, each one has concluded that overall parking supply along Bank Street is sufficient to accommodate demand.

y middle child exerts a lot of confidence. He’s a solid reader. He’s good with numbers. He can kick a ball onto the roof of the school – all areas in which a six-year-old wants to excel. Unfortunately, his confidence in the tasks he does well often causes him to be falsely confident in other areas of his life. And this is where a six-year-old becomes a ticking time bomb. He’s not as cautious as he should be when skiing or tobogganing down the ice hill at Green’s Creek. This is why a helmet is recommended. It turns out most of us are like my six-year-old. While confidence in our areas of expertise is generally regarded as a good thing, we have a tendency to allow our confidence to overflow into areas where it is unfounded – not so good. This is particularly true when we experience success. If I win a writing award, for example, and I happen to have an appointment with my financial advisor the same day, it’s likely I’ll select more risky investments than normal. This is based on the false belief that my success

However the councillor did add the re-development of Lansdowne Park could change things. “(The study) tells me there is still capacity,” Chernushenko said. “(But) Lansdowne Park wasn’t looked at because you can’t study something that has happened yet. All we can do is wait for Lansdowne and see.”

Capital Drycleaner in Herongate Mall closes after 25 years Eddie Rwema eddie.rwema@metroland.com

EMC news – It wasn’t business as usual at Capital Drycleaners, as owner Feisal Shadik made the difficult decision to close his business after nearly 25 years operating in the Herongate Mall. Shadik, whose business was built from scratch and had reached a 15,000-client base was devastated when his landlords Trinity Development Group and RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust notified him in September of the termination of his lease. The long-struggling Herongate Mall is being torn down to make room for a major redevelopment. Shadik said he had a 10year lease from the previous landlord but the lease had a clause that gives powers to the new owner to terminate the lease if they didn’t want a dry cleaner. “The only reason I allowed that clause is because the previous owner assured me not to worry if I put in (a) green ma-

chine and that whoever buys the mall would want me as a client,” said Shadik. Two years ago, Shadik said he invested close to $100,000 in laundering machines that do not use harmful chemicals and solvents, with hopes of convincing his landlords not to worry about contamination. He said the new machines are much better for the environment and for the air quality inside the business, making it a better health and safety option. Shadik said the notice of lease termination came as a shock, after trying several times to speak to the landlords without luck. “From the time the new owners acquired the property, I kept asking them what they would do to me because I knew about the clause,” he said. “At first, they told me they didn’t have space for me but that they had not made any plans yet.” The same was done by his lawyer with hopes of getting the position of the landlords, but he claims they never heard

from the owners. “In June, I wrote to the owners asking what my status was and what they were going to do with me, and again no answer,” he said. Shadik whose business ceased to operate on Dec. 22, said it was unfortunate the owners never gave him a single reason why they were terminating his lease. The EMC called RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust and Trinity Development Group for comment several times but they did not respond. LOST EVERYTHING

Next May would have been 25 years since Shadik started his business in the Alta Vista area. “I have built this business from 2,500 customers to almost 15,000, and all these customers have nowhere to go,” he said. “There is no issue of contamination because I am green. I definitely believe they are sending me away so that they can bring in a bigger brand,”

he said. The ongoing redevelopment will transform the aging and deserted mall into a more attractive and vibrant neighbourhood shopping centre. Shadik who operates the business with his wife said they made a very good living and his clients has become like a family to him. “I am sorry to my clients that it had to end this way. I always believed in giving the best service and I was known for that,” he said. One of those clients is Cindy Johnston from Metcalfe. “I think it is awful that this shop had to close down. I have been coming here for at least 15 years. It is very disappointing and I think it is very sad for this family and this business,” said Johnston. Shadik’s next move now is to become a job seeker instead of creator. “I have to go look for a job now. I have no choice. I am putting this business aside because most landlords don’t want (a) dry-cleaning business on their premises,” he said.

Five-day tourney raises money for local charities Continued from page 1

Last year’s Bell Capital Cup saw 410 teams participate from 19 divisions with more than 7,000 players. Teams from the United States, Finland, Germany and South Korea competed in the tournament. WELL REPRESENTED

The Ottawa-area was well represented, with a number of teams competing for the top spot, including the Kanata Blazers, Nepean Raiders, Ottawa Sting, Ottawa Valley Silver Seven and Gloucester Rangers. “As always, the highlight of the festival (was) the 1,000-plus hours of tournament games and the lasting memories they create for all participants,” said Lawryk. Kanata native and former Sens forward Todd White again served as honourary chair at this year’s event. The Bell Capital Cup’s 19 divisions, including two girls teams, played more than 800 games on 31 ice surfaces across the city, from Stittsville to Navan. Each division’s championship game was played at

Scotiabank Place. The board of directors of the Ottawa International Hockey Festival was expecting 20,000 visitors to the area and about 12,000 hotel rooms to be rented for the event.

HELPING SENIORS STAY HEALTHY AND STAY HOME LONGER More Ontario seniors who need medical care will now be able to see a doctor at home. Ontario and the Ontario Medical Association have reached a deal to expand house call services. A new physician services agreement includes an investment of $10 million to increase house calls. Expanding house call services to help seniors stay healthy and stay at home longer, is part of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Action Plan for Health Care. House calls beneďŹ t many homebound Ontarians including the elderly, people requiring palliative care and those with mental or physical challenges that make it difďŹ cult for them to travel to and from appointments. Patients who have recently been discharged from the hospital will also beneďŹ t from follow-up home visits, helping them stay healthy and avoid hospital readmission.

Top cooks to be published in cookbook Keith Savage, who lives only a few blocks away from the tasting at The Hub on Bank Street, brought his chickpea and corn falafel with sweet lime toum. Savage works from home, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s able to get in and out of his kitchen on a regular basis, even blogging about it. The inspiration for the dishes came from a variety of places, whether it was Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipe with a twist, or a taste picked up while travelling abroad. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the point, Henhoeffer said. Food is a social thing, meant to be shared. The cooking competition calls for amateurs, which means they are not-certiďŹ ed chefs. Someone who has worked in a kitchen is eligible to enter the competition as long as they have their own creation. The food will all be made

several hundred times over for the big event on Jan. 12, where attendees will vote for their favourites. The top three will have their recipes published in a cook book that will beneďŹ t the Ottawa Food Bank, and the overall winner will advance to the Ottawa-wide ďŹ nale in the late spring. Henhoeffer had to smile when amateur chef Savage hit the nail on the head with the competitionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; aim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal is to dispel myths about cooking: that you have to be a chef to do it,â&#x20AC;? he said. The event at Babylon, located at 317 Bank St., will feature the best chefs from the Dec. 18 judging. The event has a $5 admission fee, with tasting cards available for $10 for two, or $20 for ďŹ ve. There will be alcohol for sale, but all ages are invited to come to enjoy the tastes of the neighbourhood. Some of the upcoming

events include: â&#x20AC;˘ Ottawa catch-all, partnered with Winterlude at the Kichesippi Brewery from 5 to 10 p.m. on Feb. 2 (cooks apply by Jan. 14). â&#x20AC;˘ Vanier, partnered with Winterlude and the 2nd Annual Vanier Winter Carnival at the Richelieu Vanier Community Centre from 5 to 10

Homelessness a priority for association Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - A new committee in Lowertown aims to look at all issues related to homelessness in the neighbourhood. Created with the support of Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury’s office, the committee will focus first on homelessness in the community. The Lowertown Community Association first announced the move at its annual general meeting on Nov. 12. The committee’s first event saw members meet with staff from the shelters in the neighbourhood. Fleury said the meeting was meant to inform, educate and have a dialogue with the community, something the councillor has been keen to participate in since was elected. Lowertown residents Dwight Burgess and Shannon Poole will head the committee. “This is the sort of the thing we needed from the community association to be proactive in the community and inform residents about the meetings and committee’s results,” Fleury said. “In Sandy Hill we have the Town and Gown committee ... (and) we wanted to have something similar in Lowertown, but needed residents’ participation. Now we do, so it is good because we can have a broad

discussion about the issues.” Association president Marc Aubin is happy the neighbourhood is participating. “We want to be a partner in looking at this issue,” he said. “It may be the city and the province’s problem, but it is our community and we are living with it.” The larger scope of the committee, Aubin said, would be to address crime and other levels of poverty in the neighbourhood. But for now, it is all about gaining knowledge. “That is the number one thing: to inform ourselves and inform our residents,” he said. “Then we will be able to talk about what more we can do. “It is something that residents have been mentioning the need for since I have been engaged as president.” What, if any, influence the association can have on the issue, Aubin said, is not necessarily the point. Instead, it is to help where help may be needed. “I think ultimately we would like to be a partner at the table. We want to improve our communication with organizations in the community.” Fleury agreed, adding the focal point for now remains on educating residents on the shelters and organizations at work in the neighbourhood. The Lowertown community has a number of homeless shelters and many crime prevention programs, including Lowertown Our Home.

Run out of the Lowertown Community Resource Centre, the Crime Prevention Ottawa initiative focuses on youth and children in the Lowertown east neighbourhood. Fleury said this new committee is not to dismiss what that organization already does, but to create a wider discussion concerns in the neighbourhood. “Needs are much different and if we can work together I am not stopping it,” he said. “But there are a lot of issues in the east. The amount of kids in the east is impressive and Lowertown Our Home is working really hard on activities with that part of the neighbourhood,.” The committee’s first meeting was very informal, Fleury said, with residents, a representative from the Ottawa police and the executive director of Sheppard’s of Good Hope in attendance. In the new year, Fleury said the meetings will be about connecting with Crime Prevention Ottawa and Ottawa Community Housing. “But first, the meetings will be about education, and establish understanding before we can engage specific ideas,” Fleury said. Residents interested in joining the committee can contact Fleury’s office. “If someone wants to be part of the dialogue, they must participate fully and want to get involved in the long run,” Fleury said.

‘They’re just pure happiness’: Kyle Turris Senators join holiday hockey game with special needs kids Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

Dillon had the chance to skate with Turris, as well as a few other Ottawa Senators, who came out to participate in a Dec. 22 practice and scrimmage held by the Capital City Condors, a hockey team for children with intellectual and physical disabilities. Turris and a few of his teammates, including Eric Condra and Peter Regin, helped the nearly 100 children, ages six and up, learn skating, shooting and stick handling drills at the Jack Charron Arena in Glen Cairn. The Condors, members of the club’s A and AA teams in Rockland and Kanata, were happy to see the Senators take the ice, with many of the children pausing during drills and scrimmages to give their National Hockey League mentors hugs, followed by huge smiles. Those smiles keep bringing the Sens back to the Jack Charron Arena, said Turris.

“They’re just laughing and giggling and so happy,” said Turris. “They’re having a good time and I’m having a great time as well.” The Condors are always excited when they come out to play, he added. “They’re putting on their gear as quick as they can in the locker room. They get out here and they’re just pure happiness and it’s really neat.” Turris first heard about the Condors from Matt Carkner, a former teammate and roommate and an enthusiastic supporter of the special-needs hockey club. Carkner introduced Turris to Jim Perkins, who co-founded the Condors in 2008. “He asked if I’d be interested in coming out and skating with the kids,” he said. “I fell in love with them.” A CHANCE TO PLAY

There was a time when Dillon’s mother, Sue Riley, thought her son would never have the chance to play Canada’s national sport. “I didn’t think it would be possible for him to be part of a hockey team just given his special needs,” she said. “It builds

his self-confidence and he just loves it. He looks forward to it every week.” This is Dillon’s third year playing for the Condors. “Every year we see him progressing,” said Riley. “He’s out there now shooting pucks and scoring even – it’s awesome.” It’s not just being on the ice that captures his imagination, she added, saying her son enjoys the whole experience of coming to an arena every Saturday, sitting in the locker room with his friends and just being part of a team. “It means a lot,” she said. “It really warms your heart when you see him out there as part of a team, and very proud.” EXPANSION

Shana Perkins and her husband Jim started the Condors in 2008, after watching a team of children with special needs play hockey in Cambridge, Ont. “We were so inspired by the kids and the families and the difference it was making in their lives,” she said. “We came back to Ottawa and said, ‘If this doesn’t exist, then we need to start it here.’” The Perkins got together with a few friends and organized a game at an arena in Beckwith Township.

“We had three players for our first session,” she said. Since then, the number of players has expanded to nearly 100 children. Now in its fifth year, the Condors boasts two Kanata teams, a team in Rockland, one in Cambridge, Ont., and another in Gatineau. The Condors are also set to debut teams in Carleton Place, Huntsville, Ont., and Calgary in the new year. The Condors require ice time scheduled on the same days and times, because many of the players have special needs that demand a strict routine, said Shana. This year, the Condors

were able to take about 20 names off the waiting list, thanks to ice time donated by the Kanata Minor Hockey Association and with help from the City of Ottawa. “There’s definitely a need for more teams,” said Shana. “There’s tons of kids who don’t have the opportunity to play ice hockey, not just in Ottawa, but also in cities across Canada.” The Condors have been contacted by people across Canada, including Calgary and Winnipeg, as well as other countries, asking about starting up similar clubs in their cities. The hockey club is putting together an information package, describing the Condors

experiences and offering a start-up guide. “Really, one of our goals, our dreams, is to see this program spread,” Shana said. “That’s what we’d like to see happen, every city and town in Canada has a special-needs hockey team.” Registration for the team is ongoing all season. Player registration is available on the website at capitalcitycondors. org. The team is always looking for help on and off the ice, and are in specific need of adult volunteers. Volunteer registration is also available on the website. She and Jim are also looking at starting a hockey league for blind and visually impaired players, as well as a team for those who are confined to wheelchairs. The Perkins will also be working with Courage Canada, based in Vancouver, to develop hockey for people who are blind.

This year, the Condors have become an arm of the 2013 Bell Capital Cup tournament, which runs from Dec. 28 to Jan. 1 and attracts teams from across the world. The team participates in the Special Hockey International Tournament but this will be the first mixed tournament for the Condors. Last year’s Bell Capital Cup saw 410 teams participate from 19 divisions with more than 7,000 players. Teams from the United States, Finland, Germany and South Korea competed in the tournament. The 2013 Bell Capital Cup runs from Dec. 28 to Jan. 1. Aside from participating in the Bell Capital Cup, the Condors are also gearing up to host the 2015 Special Hockey International Tournament. The team put forward its bid in 2011 after seeing how much the players enjoyed participating in the event. With files from Jessica Cunha

Volunteers make Christmas brighter for needy families Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Dozens of volunteers packed 150 Christmas Hampers at the Hellenic Centre on Prince of Wales Drive on Dec. 20. Despite the extra cheer, Julie Séguin, communications co-ordinator for the Caring and Sharing Exchange said there were more than 10,000 people on the waiting list for assistance in the form of a gift voucher from Giant Tiger. The Christmas Exchange Program, founded in 1915, provides assistance to families and individuals who face economic hardship. The exchange provides either a food hamper or redeemable gift certificate to people referred to them by

over 300 community organizations in the city. The organization’s coordination service helps to eliminate duplicate applications and ensures that everyone receives help. Séguin said priority for Christmas hampers is given to recipients with mobility issues, seniors and single parents with many children. Organizers were hoping to be able to mail gift vouchers to more people on the waiting list in the days leading up to Christmas. Anyone interested in donating can do so at www.Caringand Sharing.ca. “Many people in Ottawa who are facing economic hardship just want to feel normal and share in the spirit of the season,” Séguin said.

Centretown advocates drill down message on CDP Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Centretown groups need to tackle concerns about the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming community design plan with a unified voice, said Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes. While the â&#x20AC;&#x153;finalâ&#x20AC;? version of the Centretown community design plan was released on Oct. 18, the consultant working on the project, George Dark, has been tasked with updating it again after a group of local developers submitted their own version of the proposal through Ottawa planning consultancy firm FoTenn. After more than two years of work and several delays, the completed community design plan was set to go to the planning committee for approval on Dec. 11, but it was delayed again after FoTenn made its submission to the city. Working on behalf of six or seven of Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggestname developers, such as Ashcroft, Claridge and Minto, FoTenn submitted a 75-page review of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan and a 25-page rewrite of the part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan dealing with the downtown. The completed plan is now expected to be released in midJanuary and will be considered by the planning committee in February, Judy Forrest of the Centretown Citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Community Association told board

members during a Dec. 18 meeting. There was some uncertainty over whether the plan would be changing. Holmes said planning committee chairman Coun. Peter Hume assured her the final draft community design plan wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change from the October version, but planning department chief John Moser told Holmes there would be changes. Dark wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say if â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or how much â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his final version would change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My feeling is that the fundamentals of the plan to date are sound,â&#x20AC;? Dark wrote in an email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city has spent considerable time and resources on this plan and I endorse the time they are taking on revisions and editing to get it right.â&#x20AC;? The board also signed off on a letter to the city detailing the community groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns about the plan. The community design plan has been in the works since May of 2010 and will replace the Centretown Plan that was drafted in the 1970s. UNITY

While a few new topics emerged on Dec. 18, Holmes said it is critical for the Centretown community association to align itself with her office and other groups like that Centretown Ottawa Community Housing Corporation to

The community association is also opposed to proposed height increases up to nine storeys in areas between Elgin and Bank streets. Also important to the community association are design guidelines aimed at creating liveable environments, large mandatory setbacks dictating how far away buildings must be from the street. FOTENN RESPONSE

Consultant George Dark presents parts of Centretownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community design plan earlier in the year. speak with one voice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the end of a very long process,â&#x20AC;? Holmes said during the Dec. 18 meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very complicated (community design plan) and councillors on the planning committee are not used to that. We need to simplify and we need to all be on the same page.â&#x20AC;? The councillor has three points she will be hammering on: the need to plan for more green space, her opposition to designating most of the core of Centretown between Kent and

Elgin streets and her opposition to designating Somerset Street West as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;secondary mainstreetâ&#x20AC;? between Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor and Elgin streets. Those concerns are shared by the community association in its letter, with a couple additions. Regarding Somerset Street, the community association says those two blocks of Somerset donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much in common with the rest of the stretch, which is more commercial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the two blocks from Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor to Elgin are very

different in character, and have more in common with the section of Somerset from Elgin to the canal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is designated residential,â&#x20AC;? reads the letter. Designating much of the area between Kent and Elgin as mixed-use is â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a negative step that serves no purpose,â&#x20AC;? the letter states. The change will only result in residential buildings being converted into offices and new buildings having offices and retail on the ground floors, removing residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; relationship with the street.

The community association also tabled a response to FoTennâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s submission. In it, the group flatly rejects most of the planning firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assertions that mixing commercial and office uses with residential dwellings on most Centertown properties is a sustainable form of development. The councillor also had nothing positive to say about the FoTenn submission, except that it gives the city advance notice about the types of things developers will be arguing when they inevitably appeal the community design plan to the Ontario Municipal Board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;George (Dark) is quite pleased (about the FoTenn submission) because it gives him something to take to the OMB and be prepared,â&#x20AC;? Holmes said, calling the submission â&#x20AC;&#x153;very weakâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;very transparent.â&#x20AC;?

Huge gingerbread hotel towers inside Brookstreet lobby Blair Edwards blair.edwards@metroland.com

Brookstreet and consulted photographs when constructing the gingerbread hotel. Sadly, the gingerbread hotel has been on display for too long for anyone to eat it, said Lyness, adding that he will disassemble the hotel during a staff party in January. Until then, the gingerbread hotel will be on display in the hotel lobby of the Brookstreet Hotel, located at 525 Legget Dr. in the Kanata North Business Park.

Clifford Lyness, executive chef at the Brookstreet Hotel, proudly displays his creation, a gingerbread Brookstreet Hotel, the result of more than 250 hours of work by himself and his culinary staff.

Skating dreams come to life at Jules Morin Park Second rink built through Ottawa Senators partnership with city opens in Lowertown Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - The first of many new National Hockey League-sized dreams planned for across the city has come true for residents of Lowertown. Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury recently showed off the freshly completed new outdoor skating rink at Jules Morin Park, which boasts new hockey dasher boards, fencing, hockey nets for use in the winter and the potential for lacrosse nets in the summer. The rink was built in partnership with the Sens Foundation and the Ottawa Senators and will be managed by the city. Fleury grew up skating on the former rink in the park and said looking at this new structure, it is a dream come true. “I grew up in this area and learned to skate on this rink,” Fleury said. “This is a dream come true to see this rink complete.” Through the Sens Recreational Investments in Neighbourhood Communities project there will be free skating and hockey clinics as well as summer sporting programs for hundreds of youth at the rink. According to Fleury this area of Lowertown east has more than 600 children in a two block radius, all who use the park during the winter and

summer months. “To me, it’s like we take for granted that there are arenas that you can go to and play hockey. A lot of kids don’t have that opportunity. There are no financial barriers to an outdoor rink - every kid can use this rink.” In the summer, the court lines painted on the asphalt could be used for other sports such as basketball, lacrosse and ball hockey. This rink is one of 20 outdoor rinks in at-risk neighbourhoods in Ottawa, Gatineau and surrounding areas the Sens Foundation will build. It was during the Senators 20th anniversary season when the foundation and the club committed to building the outdoor rinks. Jules Morin Park’s rink marks the second of the 20 rink committement, following the opening of the Rink of Dreams at Marion Dewar Plaza in January. The foundation expects it will cost $250,000 to build each rink and more than $6.5 million will be invested into the national capital region once all the rinks have been completed. In November the city committed to the Sens program by putting $200,000 in management costs towards helping the foundation develop a number of the rinks around the city. In addition to Lowertown, the foundation is already looking

Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury shows off the newly completed skating rink at Jules Morin Park. The rink is part of a million dollar park renovation project that will see a new field house, play area and soccer field. at other areas like Bayshore, Overbrook/McArthur, Ledbury Park (Herongate/Ridgemont), Centretown, Navan and Cumberland. Special events involving the Ottawa Senators are planned, including visits from the players, skating and hockey events, clinics and practices. At Jules Morin Park, the rink is but a piece of the larger revitalization puzzle that will be ongoing until summer of 2014.

The former two-tiered park will be turned into a one level park with a new field house and sports field. The project will be done in phases, with the rink part of the first phase. “It is a shame it can’t all be done at the same time, but once it is complete there will be plenty for the kids to do, whether it is skating in the winter, or playing soccer or ball hockey in the summer,” said Fleury. The park revitalization

project, funded by the city and the Ottawa Senators will cost close to $2 million dollars to complete. Established in 1852, Jules Morin Park, also once known as Anglesea Square, became the first piece of land the city of Ottawa set aside for public use. The rich history of the 153year-old park will not be ignored with a number of ideas are in the works to ensure the heritage value of the park is not missed.

A for a complete list of programming for the park, is still to be determined. The rink will be open, Fleury said, once the weather permits, as well as an official launch will be held on Jan. 7. Fleury said volunteers will play a key role in keeping the rink up and running all winter long. Volunteers interested in flooding the rink can contact Fleury’s office. With files from Laura Mueller

bodies of water it may look solid but is often still dangerous. If you want to go out onto the ice, remember the thickness should be: • 15 centimetres for walking or skating alone. • 20 cm for skating parties or games. • 25 cm for snowmobiles. • 35 cm for fishing huts. As a guideline, clear blue ice is usually the strongest; white opaque or snow ice

is half as strong as blue ice. Grey ice is unsafe. The greyness indicates the presence of water. Water levels this year are higher than usual and are accompanied by soft, slippery banks that are treacherous, particularly for young children, adults and family pets. Before venturing onto the ice, check the Lifesaving Society’s guidelines for staying safe, and review guidelines

Gathering ice blocks always sent chills

F

or reasons which escape me today, I was always home from school on the day Father went to the Bonnechere to bring ice in for the ice house. I think now, it was because Mother knew how very anxious I was when Father went to the river and in my childish mind I was sure I could save him from any disaster if I too was on the Bonnechere. Father had been watching the river for weeks and then one day he went down with the auger and burrowed a hole to see how thick the ice was in the very centre of the river, where the water was the deepest. It was ready. It was time to bring in the blocks of ice for the ice house. Through necessity, the ice house was always built on the north side of the barn. This protected it from the sun. It was a small, black building, not much bigger than the smoke house, with no windows, only a narrow door just wide enough to allow one

MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories body inside with the big iron ice-tongs. Now the day had arrived when Father would go to the river with the team of horses and flat-bottom sleigh along with the tools he needed for cutting out the ice. I was filled with both dread and admiration. I lived in fear that Father would slip into one of the holes from which he had taken a block of ice and be lost forever. At the same time, I marveled at how this single day would provide us with ice for the rest of the winter and, if we were lucky, until this same exercise was repeated the next year. If I was with him, I figured I could look after him and make sure he was safe.

What I could do, I had no idea. But just being with him, I knew would keep him safe. I was bundled up like a mummy and Father wore a second pair of bib overalls over his winter clothes. His big cowhide mitts covered two pairs of wool mitts, a fur hat with the ear lugs down was tied securely under his chin, his pipe, as always hung loosely from his mouth and we were ready for the trip across the back field, down the other side of the west hill to the Bonnechere. The ice on the river cracked and snapped under the sleigh. I fervently prayed the horses, sleigh and Father and I wouldn’t end up on the bottom of the river. We came to the very centre of the Bonnechere and the long process began.

Father, using the auger, burrowed four holes, forming a square into the ice. Then, with the needle-nosed saw, he cut a swath from one hole to the other three. This was when I was filled with dread, because I knew what was coming. Once the square was freed, the block instantly flew from the water, sometimes rising above the very ice we stood on, splashing great gushes of water all around. Most of it landed right on Father. Now the block was ready to be hauled out and put on the sleigh. This step was repeated until the sleigh was covered with blocks and they were piled three deep. Here, I took on a new fear. What if the sleigh was so weighed down that the horses, the sleigh, the cut blocks of ice, and myself went to the bottom of the Bonnechere? By the time the last block was heaved onto the top row of ice, Father’s overalls were slick with frozen water. It was all he could do to climb onto the front of the sleigh and head the horses back to the ice house.

As soon as we were on firm ground, I said my silent prayer of thanks that we had been saved from a freezing death in the bottom of the Bonnechere. Father’s work, however, was far from over. Once back at the ice house, he had to unload the blocks one at a time, each probably weighing 45 kilograms, and place them in rows inside. Father could hardly walk upright with the weight of his frozen overalls, but he was not ready to change into dryer clothes yet. The horses had to be put in the barn, fed and bedded. Only then did he head for the house and the warmth of the kitchen. Mother had to strip him of the frozen outer layer and the overalls were draped over the wood-box to melt and dry. The brothers would be pressed into service on Saturday, as they headed to the sawmill to bring back load after load of sawdust and cover the blocks in the ice house. The sawdust was free, the owner of the mill glad to be rid of it. So for another winter, and

hopefully well over the summer, we would have ice for the ice box in the kitchen of that old log house. We considered ourselves very privileged indeed to have the big oak Barnett bought by grandfather who couldn’t understand how anyone could survive without an ice box. After that day on the Bonnechere, and after his supper, Father, completely spent of every ounce of energy, would go to his usual spot in the kitchen. He would settle into the rocking chair in front of the Findlay Oval, lift his stockinged feet onto a cushion on the oven door and promptly fall asleep. The Ottawa Farm Journal or the Family Herald and Weekly Star would have gradually slipped from his gnarled hands. I would watch his gentle breathing and I would be filled with such caring. Again I would say my prayers of grateful thanks that Father had survived another day of bringing in the ice from the Bonnechere.

Project Prancer results in 640 charges Ottawa police

EMC news - Ottawa police participated in a multi-agency enforcement effort in downtown neighbourhoods on Dec. 14 and 15. Codenamed Prancer, the effort was designed to educate and enforce infractions related to traffic, parking, noise, disturbances, public intoxication, drug use, aggressive panhandling and property damage. Charges were laid for 640 violations of provincial statutes and city of Ottawa bylaws including numerous traffic and parking violations, trespassing, public intoxication, open alcohol and aggressive panhandling. Four criminal charges were laid for impaired driving, driving over .08 blood alcohol content, possession of stolen property and assaulting police. The assaulting police charge was laid in relation to an altercation in an overcrowded bar. An overcrowding charge is also pending against the establishment. The approach, focused in the Byward Market, Lowertown and Sandy Hill areas, was proactive education through the enforcement of municipal by-laws, provincial statutes and criminal code offences. The project was a joint effort with city of Ottawa bylaw enforcement, OC Transpo special constables and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). R0011837815-0103

Metcalfe farmer named 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;woman of excellenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - â&#x20AC;&#x153;I drive a tractor when I need to, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather be in the barn.â&#x20AC;? This about sums up Karen Eastman Velthuis, a thirdgeneration dairy farmer who owns about 200 head of cattle south of Metcalfe on Marvelville Road. The long-time 4-H volunteer was awarded the 2012 Women of Excellence award from the Federated Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institutes of Ontario at the Royal Winter Fair in November, an accomplishment she said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very honoured,â&#x20AC;? Velthuis said. The mother of two canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember a time she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t working with cows. She grew up on Riverdown Holsteins farm, which Velthuisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother Betty Eastman inherited from her own mother. Betty and her husband Ron live next door, and are still very much involved in running the farm, although Velthuis and her husband John bought the farm from them several years ago. As a girl, Velthuis was an active participant in the local 4-H club, which taught her how to showcase her dairy calves and cows. Later, when Velthuis had just started her bachelor of agriculture science at the University of Guelph, she agreed to lead

the 4-H club in the summers when she was not in class. Though she took a brief break from leading 4-H after ďŹ nishing university, it would not be long before she and her new husband John were involved again. They led the local 4-H club for about ďŹ ve years together in the 1980s. When her children Kelly and Justin, now 21 and 16, joined the club, Velthuis once again volunteered her time, and she has been doing it ever since. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you add it all up itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well over 20 years,â&#x20AC;? Velthuis said, noting that she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan on giving it up any time soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are less and less people volunteering, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an area where I have some experience.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an understatement. When it comes to showing cows and calves, Velthuis is a bona ďŹ de expert. For 42 consecutive years 4-H calves have lived at Riverdown, and Velthuis and her family show cattle at a number of fairs and competitions every year, including the Royal Winter Fair. Velthuis is also responsible for organizing three dairy cattle shows at the Metcalfe Fair each September, including the Eastern Ontario-Western Quebec 4-H championship show on the ďŹ nal day of the fair. And for 28 years, she sat on the committee for the Eastern

Ontario-Western Quebec Holstein show in Kemptville, and was the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst female president. She retired from her role several years ago. Velthuis said she is happy to do any necessary work on the farm, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the calves who have her heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The calves) have always been there. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like kids, you watch them grow up and see how they turn out,â&#x20AC;? Velthuis said. However, Velthuis makes speciďŹ c breeding decisions to create the calves, which makes watching them grow into cows even more interesting, she said. Even in the Velthuis family kitchen, cows are an everpresent ďŹ xture. The smaller, indoor cows take the form of cookie jars, salt and pepper shakers and ďŹ gurines. Velthuis said there would be even more scattered around the busy room if not for the sprawling snowman ďŹ gurine collection she put out for Christmas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough room for the cows with all the snowmen,â&#x20AC;? she laughed. Her kitchen window curtains are completely covered with rows of ribbons won at the many cattle shows the family has attended over the years. Any extra wall space is ďŹ lled with sports team photos and her childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s myriad ribbons, trophies and awards.

Karen Eastman Velthuis won the 2012 Women of Excellence award from the Federated Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institutes of Ontario at the Royal Winter Fair. In whatever free time Velthuis had when the kids were growing up, she coached several of their community baseball, hockey and soccer teams. She was always an enthusiastic athlete in high school, doing everything from cross-country running to broomball, and still plays

hockey and ball hockey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sports and cows â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I put most of my volunteer time,â&#x20AC;? she said. The provincial womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s institute federation president Evelyn Peck said in a statement that Velthuis is very deserving of the annual award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Karen has had and will

continue to have a tremendous impact on the Royal (Winter Fair), 4-H, the Holstein Club, and the Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec championship shows,â&#x20AC;? Peck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Karenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nominators feel strongly that Karen is extremely deserving of this award. She is an inspiration to so many.â&#x20AC;?

Hi! My name is Walter. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a Boston Terrier, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m seven years old. I love to go for walkies, and car rides! When I get a bone, or a new favourite toy, I run around the house crying with excitement. I try to to talk, but it comes out as a lot of silly noises. I only bark when I think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s danger, or a squirrel is in my yard. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m great at clearing a room. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my fault, all Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are known for this gift. I cannot howl. My lips get in the way and it comes out as a garble. My Mum thinks this is funny and is trying to get me on video. I like the feel of carpet, so I usually crawl along dragging my belly, or wiggle around on my back. People laugh, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind. I like to dance for my supper, or I can do a lot of tricks for a yummy treat. If you ever meet me, I will always greet you with lotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of kisses! 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZĂ&#x2020;I=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ă&#x2021;4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidĂ&#x2019;cYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcĂ&#x2020;EZid[i]ZLZZ`Ă&#x2021;

Owning a dog can be a very rewarding experience and how you train your dog has a big impact on whether your relationship will be one of companionship or frustration. A big mistake people often make when they ďŹ rst bring their dog home is to give him too much freedom. You may think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being nice, but in fact, you may be doing more harm than good. Adopting a training program from the beginning is a fun way to get to know your dog and sets the stage for a successful relationship. What is training? Training is a form of communication between a dog and his owner. Since dogs cannot speak, it is up to the owner to learn how to communicate with the dog. All owners can beneďŹ t from training classes, even if they have previously owned a dog or trained many in the past; remember that every dog is different. What is your role in training? If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t train your dog, he will train himself â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and not necessarily in a good way! Your dog will learn from you. By taking an active role in teaching your dog, you will be able to train the dog the way you want. Knowing your dog Similar to children, dogs understand different things at different stages of their development. Below you will ďŹ nd a brief description of the kinds of things you can expect from your dog as she grows. Please note that these are only guidelines. Some dogs progress or mature slower than others. Be prepared to see behaviour change over time. 0â&#x20AC;&#x201C;4 months

Mother fights against cancer that took her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life Jennifer McIntosh jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

EMC news - Jane Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house was all decked out in Christmas splendor, but there has been something missing for more than 30 years. Her daughter, Kimberley Anne Friendship passed away in 1977 from an aggressive form of childhood cancer called neuroblastoma. The disease often begins in the adrenal glands and by the time it has been diagnosed it has spread. Johnson said Kimmie was diagnosed on Easter weekend in 1976 and died in October of 1977 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when she was just eight years old. Despite her short life, Johnson said she left a legacy of love, selflessness and courage. In an effort to honour that memory, Johnson has written a cookbook called Kimmieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rainbow of Hope Cookbook. The book â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which Johnson sells at the General and Civic campuses of the Ottawa Hospital â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was printed by the Ottawa Hospital. Johnson sells it for $20 a copy and hopes to raise some money towards research. The recipes are all her own and Johnson credits the support of her surviving children, friends and family for the support to put it all together and have it printed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took me about 30 years to put it together,â&#x20AC;? she said.

The proceeds from the book will go to support neuroblastoma research at CHEO and SickKids in Toronto. While treatments are getting better, Johnson said she wants to save other children from the ordeal her Kimmie went through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After her diagnosis, she courageously endured surgery, 59 cobalt treatments, countless tests and chemotherapy for a year,â&#x20AC;? Johnson said, adding that grief for a lost child is like a wound that never quite heals. Now as a way to give back to the hospital system that helped her family, Johnson volunteers in the intensive care unit at the Civic campus of the Ottawa Hospital. The Kanata woman also helps out at CHEO and stays in touch with her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former doctor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who continues to do research on neuroblastoma. Johnson said she recently printed another 500 copies of the book and hopes to sell them all. For more information on where to get the book visit. www.facebook.com/ KimmiesRainbowOfHopeCookbook#!/KimmiesRainbowOfHopeCookbook.
