EMC news – Children from the Blossom Park neighbourhood and the three schools near the Russell Boyd Park can look forward to a new splash pad before the end of the summer. The city held a public meeting on Feb. 12 at St. Bernard Elementary School to allow residents to see preliminary concept plans and to provide input and comments. The new facility will be able to accommodate up to five different types of spray features, based on the available project budget and the size of the splash pad, according to Gloucester-Southgate Coun. Diane Deans. “There are a lot of children in this neighbourhood and I have heard from many parents in the community that they needed some new elements to update and upgrade the park,” said Deans. Plans to construct the $220,000 splash pad were approved in this year’s city budget. If the community is happy with the plans, the city hopes to have the splash pad completed before the end of summer.

SAFETY CONCERNS

Residents expressed fears about the location, saying it was too close to the road. Some suggestions included moving the splash pad deeper into the park or have the city build a fence or a barrier for protection purposes. City planner Josee Helie said they based their decision on the location on cost and feasibility. See RUSSELL, page 2

“If all goes according to plan and the community says they want it and we can agree on the elements, we will try to have it constructed by summer,” said Deans. When open, the splash pad will provide hours of safe water fun to hundreds of children and families in Blossom Park. “I know all the three schools that use the park are very enthusiastic about having some new elements,” said Deans. Beverley, a parent and resident of Blossom Park, said the splash pad would be well received and used by residents. “I think it is great for the neighbourhood and the schools here. We don’t have a splash pad anywhere close,” she said.

EMC news – The new federal Liberal Party science and technology critic has said he strongly believes that Canada can and must be improved with enhanced science, better technology and a culture of innovation. David McGuinty, MP for Ottawa South was recently named critic for the Liberal corner’s science and technology, federal economic development agency for southern Ontario and federal econom-

ic development agency for northern Ontario. He received the new postings a few weeks after he resigned as the natural resources critic because of comments he made to Conservative MPs from Alberta. McGuinty offered his resignation in November and apologized for the comments he made saying that his words in no way reflected the views of his party or leader. “I had a conversation with a journalist. It was a very long discussion and excerpts of the conversation were cut. The

comments were made public and it caused a commotion and I decided the best thing was to apologize for any offence it might have caused and step aside from my critic role,” said McGuinty. However, he disagreed his comments hurt his party’s chances in the Calgary Centre by-election that Conservatives won. “If you look at the results of the Calgary Centre by-election, the reason we lost is because three opposition parties divided the votes and allowed the Conservative candidate

to come up the middle,” said McGuinty. “This is a challenge for the 60 per cent of Canadian voters who are progressive in nature.” EXCITED ABOUT NEW ROLE

McGuinty said he would support any moves to bring back the Ottawa-Gatineau region to where it was in early 2000s when the region was receiving 60 to 70 per cent of all venture capital invested in Canada. “We are now down well below 25 per cent and that is

unfortunate,” said McGuinty. He said he was pleased to be able to take on this task, that he finds critical and integral to Canada’s success in the future. “Canada in my view is not doing very well on the science and technology front,” he said. “I have a lot of constituents in Ottawa South who work at the National Research Council and at many of the granting agencies and many of them are telling me that funding for core science is being slashed.” 287785-1030

Russell Boyd Park to be upgraded Continued from page 1

“Don’t be afraid of safety,” she said. “We would never put something in here that puts kids at risk.” At the meeting, residents announced an initiative to raise money to build a climbing structure in the park. Richard Chaplinsky, principal of St. Bernard Elementary School, is spearheading the campaign. The goal is to raise $16,000, which would be matched by the city through the major capital partnership plan.

He added that many scientists were being let go but more troubling is the fact that many in government in particular were being censored and silenced. “Science and technology for me as a portfolio is an incredible new challenge,” said McGuinty. Currently, there are still more than 2,000 IT firms in the greater Ottawa-Gatineau area, according to McGuinty. “Science and technology is where the race is. It applies to energy, transport, and infrastructure and we have to ensure we have the smartest most innovative population on the face of the planet. “For me it is integral and foundational to Canada’s existing and future success.” McGuinty suggested that the current government’s ap-

proach to science and technology was very much one from the 1950s. “Dig up the oil…to a certain extent, transform it, but sell as much as we can,” he said. “If we want to be better in science and technology, we need a real tangible innovation strategy for the country.” He said he was proud of his brother Dalton, former Ontario premier for being the first sub-national government in all of North America to create a ministry for research and innovation. “The point is in Canada we are not talking about an innovation strategy or an industrial policy. We are not even looking at the tax system as aggressively as we should be, certainly, as it applies in my view to very important environmental issues like climate change.”

Public Meeting: Zoning and Site Plan Applications for 700 Hunt Club Road I, along with Councillor Maria McRae, will be hosting a public meeting to discuss a proposed re-zoning and site plan development application for 700 Hunt Club Road. This site is located south of Hunt Club Road, west of Gibford Drive, north of Dean Martin Crescent and east of Paul Anka Drive and will occupy the balance of the land around the existing Petro Canada gas station. The site plan proposes a full service restaurant with a patio, a fast food restaurant, a single-storey commercial building, and a three-story hotel, with proposed total parking on site for 222 vehicles. The application includes a request for a change in zoning that would allow for the threestory hotel in the southwest portion of the property.

Alta Vista student wows mayor with rail plan Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa has received a lot of advice on what its future light-rail system should look like, but never from a teenager – until now. Thirteen-year-old Nepean resident Michael Bailey showed off his vision for “MB Rail� to Mayor Jim Watson on Feb. 15 at city hall. The Grade 8 Alta Vista Public School student has been obsessed with wheels “since birth,� said his mother, Joan Bailey. In the past couple of years Michael has built dozens of paper models of bus and rail transit systems

from across the globe, but he recently turned his attention to creating his own transit systems. “I said to myself, ‘why am I making merchandise for transit systems when I can just create my own?’� Michael said. He is curious about how people move around, but transit in particular interests him because it can help solve traffic congestion problems. Michael came to city hall hoping to sell his idea for an east-west and north-south dual rail line to the mayor and Matt Eason of the city’s rail implementation office, but Michael’s mother simply

The family’s record is rides on 11 different buses in one day. The mayor was particularly impressed by Michael’s detailed understanding of the transit system. “He knows more about transit than I do,� Watson said, only half in jest.

City tight-lipped about ByWard Market study Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Community members are eager to see what a visioning study has in store for the ByWard Market, but they are being locked out of the process. The study, which was conducted by New York-based consultants Project for Public Spaces, was jointly funded by the city and the ByWard Market Business Improvement Area. Instead of releasing the study the consultants completed in December, the city has decided to withhold it to work with the business group’s executive staff to make “tweaks” to the report. Jasna Jennings, executive director of the BIA, said the tweaks are mainly to fix up minor errors or misunderstandings on the part of the study team. For instance, Project for Public Spaces recommended the city increase the amount of funding it gives to the business group. But the group receives funds from a tax levy collected from business owners that are members and is not directly funded by the city. “We wanted to make sure nothing in there is skewed,” Jennings said. But community members

see it another way. In most cases, studies commissioned by the city are released to the public in draft form for comments, which are then incorporated into city staff’s review of the report, which comes with final recommendations to the committee of council that oversees the issue. In this case, the study won’t be available to the general public until it appears on the planning committee agenda with the staff report a week before the planning committee meets. “Secrecy is not good,” said Sylvie Grenier, who sits on the ByWard Market visioning exercise steering committee on behalf of the Lowertown Community Association. “Being open is always better.” In a column in the community association’s newsletter, the Lowertown Echo, Grenier wrote: “While the exact reasons for the secrecy are unknown, it would appear that city staff are selecting the recommendations they prefer before sharing the report.” After her request to view the report was refused, Grenier filed a more formal access to information request. Shortly afterwards, a city staffer called her on the phone and agreed to relay some of

the information contained in the study. “This is unacceptable,” Grenier said. “This visioning was built on transparency and the whole reason we started the steering committee was to help sell the report to businesses and the community.” Jennings didn’t see anything unusual about waiting to release the study, since community members did not help pay for the study. She said the study is expected to be reviewed by the steering committee, including Grenier, once senior city staff sign off on it. The total cost of the ByWard Market visioning exercise is $40,000, which the city and BIA split equally. Grenier and the rest of the steering committee (about 10 members) aren’t the only ones who haven’t seen the study. While the business group’s executive staff has read the report, the BIA’s board of directors has not seen the study. Even the business group’s staff faced delays in getting the report, Jennings said. It wasn’t a struggle to get the report, the issue was that the report was released just before Christmas and senior city staff had to sign off on it before it could be shared with the BIA, she said.

Lowertown residents anxious to learn the results of a study concerning the future of the ByWard Market will have to wait until the findings are released ahead of the planning committee meeting at which it will be discussed. No date has been set for that meeting. Jennings didn’t receive the study until the very end of January. “It took a little bit longer than we expected,” she said. Community members who are up in arms over the study likely won’t find anything too earth-shattering in the report,

anyway, Jennings said. “I don’t think anything is going to be very surprising,” she said. She declined to elaborate further or summarize anything in the report. The city refused to allow city planners to speak about the study, but provided a state-

ment on behalf of policy development and urban design manager Lee Ann Snedden that said the study and report will be released together in advance of a planning committee meeting “in the coming months.” Media relations staff did not respond to a request

The Ottawa Heritage Streetcar Committee wants to see an electric streetcar run from the Ottawa Convention Centre beside the Rideau Canal to the War Museum at LeBreton Flats. Made up of members of the public, the Sparks Street Mall Authority and Transport Action Canada, the group sees the line appealing to tourists. On Feb. 11, Transport Action Canada president David Jeanes presented the project to members of the Lowertown community. “The Ottawa heritage streetcar idea is about revitalizing the downtown core, adding culture and heritage activity to Sparks Street,” Jeanes said. Until 1959, Ottawa had an operating streetcar service which ran from Rockcliffe Park to the west end. This particular project would bring back the streetcar to the downtown streets with a proposed 2.4-kilometre route, a large portion of which would run along Sparks Street. Les Gagne, executive director for the Sparks Street Mall Authority, said the

streetcar would be a great way to celebrate the heritage of the street as well as provide an alternative way of getting around the core. “I believe it would be 100 per cent complementary,” Gagne said. “The city’s light rail will have a much larger ridership. Sparks Street is meant to be a pedestrian friendly and you will see, if it is designed properly and promoted properly, (a streetcar) could be a huge advantage.” Participants from the city and the National Capital Commission sit on the committee as well. The idea of a circulator, like a streetcar available for visitors, tourists and shoppers, was first suggested in a study led by the Outaouais transit authority, STO, in 2000. The concept was included as part of the 2005 NCC core area plan, but NCC spokesman Mario Tremblay added the NCC has not given this streetcar proposal any formal support. A preliminary cost estimate for the complete line is $16 million. Gagne said the group is working on exact costs and that a much shorter line, just along Sparks Street, is also a possibility. As to how the project would be funded, that’s up in the air as well. The group is looking at the possibility of

A scale model provides an example of what a streetcar might look like on Sparks Street. The Ottawa Heritage Streetcar Committee is currently working at bringing such a transit system back to the city. seeking federal or provincial grants for the project, as well as seeking interest from prospective businesses and sponsors. Whether or not there would be a cost to use the service also has yet to be determined. “It’s going to be a paid service, but that is yet to be

confirmed,” Gagne said. “If we had a big sponsor, maybe it wouldn’t be.” To create buzz, Gagne said the committee has been discussing the idea of bringing back Ottawa’s first original form of mass transit – the horse-drawn streetcar – to Sparks Street.

For Sparks Street areas such as Kent and Lyon streets, Jeanes said he believes the streetcar could be the catalyst to revitalize the area. “Generally, Kent and Lyon is a wasteland,” he said. “How exciting would it be to have a streetcar go through there?” The plans are still in the early stages, working out actual costs and length of the route.

Residents on board with cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision for Liveable Ottawa Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metrolannd.com

EMC news - City hall was buzzing with ideas from more than 100 people who came out on Feb. 12 to discuss how to shape Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future. It was residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first chance to get down into the details of the Liveable Ottawa initiative, a year-long project that will result in not only an update Official Plan, but also master plans for transportation, infrastructure, cycling and pedestrians. The exercise is a complex one, but most of the particpants showed up well informed after reading the reams of information posted on ottawa.ca/liveableottawa. People gathered in small groups during the Feb. 13 event for discussions about the impact of some of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals. Here is a snapshot of three of those discussions: TRANSPORTATION

Planning committee chairman and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume said changes to transportation policies are â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most provocative partâ&#x20AC;? of the entire exercise. The ideas may be controversial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as allowing traffic congestion in order to encourage people to use other forms of transportation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the group discussing the

topic on Feb. 13 supported the changes. One of the more confusing and potentially controversial aspects of the plan is to shift away from building roads to handle the absolute maximum amount of traffic expected in one peak hour of the day and towards a system that would spread out demand over a few hours. That would mean fewer road widenings and fewer new roads, reducing the pressure to construct roads by about 15 per cent. As participants tried to wrap their heads around that change, there was general agreement. Another major change would give transportation planners the framework they need to be able to build â&#x20AC;&#x153;complete streets,â&#x20AC;? something residents in the core have increasingly been calling for. The change would reduce the focus on building a road with the main intention of serving cars and instead prioritize the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and transit vehicles, said strategic transportation planning manager Kornel Mucsi. Phillipe Genest, a Centretown resident, said he sees the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light-rail line as a way to make it easier for people to live in the suburbs and commute to work downtown. He said he would rather see true intensification that encourages people to live where

they work. Musci said the policy changes are aimed at making it possible for people to do that in the suburbs as well, but having employment centres closer to where people live.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all fine, the participants said â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it must be enforced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided on a limit, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer any exceptions,â&#x20AC;? said Ron Rose of the Old Ottawa East Community Association.

INTENSIFICATION, TALL BUILDINGS

RURAL DEVELOPMENT

Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitions are way out of date when it comes to tall buildings, said city planner Trevor Illingworth. Illingworth led a discussion about how the city should approach one of the more controversial issues the city faces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where to put tall towers. The idea is to concentrate the tallest developments within close proximity to transit stations, Illingworth said. Pinecrest, South Keys/Greenboro and the Riverside South community core are areas the city intends to target for intensification. High-rise buildings would also be allowed in areas that have been specifically identified in community design plans. Where there is no design plan, the overarching Official Plan would define exactly where tall buildings would go: up to 19 storeys could be built near a rapid transit station, and buildings of up to nine storeys would be allowed in most other areas that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a specific area plan.

Rural residents engaged in one of the more passionate discussions during the Feb. 13 event. They argued that the city must encourage villages to develop with a mix of residential options that will provide the population needed to support core services, so businesses will remain and new businesses will open up. Roddy Bolivar of the Carp Road Corridor Business Improvement Area said economic development is at top of mind for many rural residents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not emphasized in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals for the updated Official Plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Creating sustainable growth and sustainable villages should be the focus,â&#x20AC;? Bolivar said. For instance, a concept like the combination of a yoga studio and tea shop in Carp is a modern invention thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideal for rural areas, but it is not captured by the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current business definitions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More permissible zoning is a start, but it needs to come into a bigger picture,â&#x20AC;?

LAURA MUELLER/METROLAND

Planning committee chairman and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume listens as residents discuss the proposals to make Ottawa more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;liveableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the future. The city is updating the master plans that will guide everything from how roads are built to how tall buildings can be. he said. Anda Bruinsma of the Cumberland Village Community Association said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critical the city provides a clear picture of all the plans that will affect the villages, including transportation strategies, otherwise development will continue to be stalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one is going to start a business if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to put a highway through the town,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our perception is the right and left hand arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talking to each other,â&#x20AC;? she added. Another participant, Kanata

North resident Trevor Davies, said the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to make a temporary ban on countryestate lot subdivisions permanent is ill-advised. Hume popped into the session to advise Davies that concentrating development in rural villages rather than the countryside makes it easier to provide services and encourage businesses to open up. Between garbage pickup, transit and even school buses, country-estate lot subdivisions â&#x20AC;&#x153;become a very, very expensive way to promote development,â&#x20AC;? Hume said.

Sometimes a little public consultation is all it takes

T

he city made the right decision when it backed off a plan to establish a temporary parking lot on Lees Avenue near Springhurst Park. The existing greenspace at 160 Lees Ave. is used by a broad spectrum of residents, from those living in nearby apartment towers to dog owners taking their pets out for a walk to members of local rugby teams, playing a key recreational role in the

surrounding community. But that role has come under threat in recent months. As part of planning work associated with the construction of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s light rail line, the site was identified as both a construction staging area for the redevelopment of the Lees transit station and as overflow parking for staff at the University of Ottawa, who were themselves being displaced by LRT construction near the main campus. Upon learning about the

plans, the Old Ottawa East community stood firm in opposition and with the help of Capital Coun. David Chernushenko, convinced the city to back off not only its construction staging area plans, but to relocate the parking lot to a different site on Lees Avenue to boot. The exercise has shown how important public consultation is in the municipal democratic process. A great deal of the time, the city needs to tune out public out-

cry on controversial issues. When faced with a decision that affects a large number of residents, a narrow view will not create effective policy. The LRT system itself will ruffle feathers in certain neighbourhoods when the bulldozers arrive to carve a path through the city. Light rail, however, is something being constructed to serve hundreds of thousands of residents and to ensure sustainable growth of the city in the future. The city cannot

afford to bow to narrow interests. The placement of a parking lot, on the other hand, that will only serve a narrow constituency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in this case the university â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is the exact type of decision where close consultation with local residents is required. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the sort of decision that requires careful consideration of all available options, because it will have a profound effect on this narrow constituency. At first, the city didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

do that. It looked at a map, saw a convenient location and proceeded with its plans. If it had involved the public from the beginning, discovered how important the greenspace was to area residents and investigated other options, a messy public relations exercise could have been avoided. In the end, the city did the right thing. We can only hope it learns from the experience and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the same mistake again.

COLUMN

The pause that refreshes CHARLES GORDON Funny Town

I

was at the National Arts Centre recently to see Metamorphoses which was, like all NAC Theatre productions, strikingly staged. Even if the play doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t knock you out, its visual presentation is always going to be interesting. In this case, it was more interesting than usual because it was played mostly in the water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a kind of wading pool at the front part of the stage and a deep tank with transparent sides at the back. The actors were in and out of the water. Somebody even smoked a cigarette underwater, which is a trick Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad I never learned how to do. It was hard enough to quit. The presence of the water, including a kind of constant rain from above the stage, prompted a mildly critical comment in a largely favourable review from the Globe and Mail: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A constant rain of water tumbling down on the upper level of the set is one misjudgment; its aesthetic value is cancelled out by the damage it wreaks acoustically and the suggestions it sends to bladders in the audience (particularly since thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no intermission).â&#x20AC;? Actually, the play is only an hour and 20 minutes long, so the lack of an intermission was unlikely to produce a crisis. But the comment did get me to ponder what seems to be a general trend in our theatres to eliminate intermission whenever possible. Some of this may have to do with a trend to shorter plays and concerts: it seems silly to stop an hour-long play in the middle. But for longer plays, or even movies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I remember visiting the snack bar in the middle of Ben Hur and Spartacus, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure Gone With

the Wind had an intermission â&#x20AC;&#x201C; eliminating the intermission takes away what seems to be an important part of the theatre-going experience. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the part where the theatre-goers stretch their legs, wander the lobby and discuss what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen and what might happen next. They bump into people they know and ask how theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re enjoying it so far. Maybe they have an argument. Maybe they pick up on something they missed. Why was the tall guy so angry? Oh, so he was her former husband. However the discussion goes, it helps them to focus on what they have seen and are about to see. Theatre-going, concert-going and movie-going are not supposed to be solitary experiences. They should be social, with people sharing ideas and enthusiasms. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen if they just walk in, sit in their seats for the performance and head for their cars as soon as the event is over. This is recognized at many concerts, where part of the fun is chatting about the music at half-time. And it is true of professional sports. In both cases, there is the added benefit of lightening the wallets of the hungry and thirsty. But theatre is different. As the parent of actors, I know the reasoning: The director and cast have worked hard to establish a mood, to involve the audience so completely that they forget they are sitting in a theatre; when the curtain goes down at intermission, the spell is broken and has to be re-established all over again when the curtain goes up. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a persuasive argument. Mind you, a hockey player could argue the same thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really had it going and then the buzzer went and when the next period started we lost our momentum and everything changed.â&#x20AC;? Hockey players have learned to live it. True, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit more difficult for actors, who have to stick to a script and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just go and punch somebody to get the momentum going again. But they should be able, after intermission, to take consolation in the notion that the audience is fresh and not restless and maybe better able to understand why the tall guy was so angry.

When asked about campaigning in a riding where the local candidate was also campaigning for federal leadership, Trudeau said they were both encouraging Liberal votes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have nine very strong candidates who are reaching out and drawing people in right across the country, and every single person each one of us brings in is for the entire Liberal party,â&#x20AC;? Trudeau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Davidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working this riding very hard, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad to be able to work it hard as well and I will keep moving on and he will keep moving on and we will keep bringing together more strength.â&#x20AC;? Trudeau talked about his main campaign points to those

in the audience during the speech, again focusing on the overall Liberal platform. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The point is not to just get rid of Mr. Harper, the point is to replace him with a better government,â&#x20AC;? he said. He talked about federal reform at length when by a member of the audience, saying he would like to see every Liberal candidate go through an open nomination process before running for election. He added he has proposed that the number of free votes increase to loosen party lines, leaving issues except for party platform and budget open for discussion. The turnout for the OrlĂŠans was predominantly Liberal supporters who donned red scarves or stickers to show support for the party. The new leader of the Liberal party will be elected on April 14 in Ottawa.

Vanier to release new survey michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - As Vanier continues to grow, the partners in Together for Vanier are looking for feedback from residents to better focus the group’s work in the community. Together for Vanier was launched in 2007 as a crime prevention project for the neighbourhood, which at the time was plagued by drug, crime and prostitution problems. Crime Prevention Ottawa, the Vanier Community Service Centre, Ottawa police and residents partnered to tackle the issues faced by residents in the area. A survey of residents was the first interaction between Together for Vanier and the community, from which the Vanier Community Association and the Vanier Beautification committee were formed. Now, six years later, a very different Vanier is continuing its evolution, prompting Together for Vanier to check in with residents once again. “We are years down the road and we decided it was time to hear how the community feels about crime

prevention in Vanier,” said Stefan Cherry, the Vanier Community Service Centre’s liaison officer. Cherry announced on Feb. 12 that a new survey would be distributed to area residents. The 2013 survey will have the same crime-based questions as in 2007, but there will also be new questions about beautification and commerce. “We want to know what kind of businesses people would like to see in Vanier,” Cherry said. The group will share the results with Quartier Vanier Merchants Association. “We really hope we can get high participation,” Cherry said. The survey is confidential, but respondents will have to have a K1L postal code to take part. It will be available at the service centre and at some local businesses in Vanier. It will also be available in the community’s local bilingual paper, Perspectives Vanier, and will be distributed electronically by the Vanier Beautification and Vanier Community Association and online at ensemblepourvanier.com.

Here, Mayor Jim Watson pours juice for Colin M., who lives nearby and eats at the Sandy Hill shelter. The annual event was organized by Knoxdale-Merivale Coun. Keith Egli on behalf of the 19 councillors and the mayor, who covered the cost and helped serve the Valentine’s Day-themed lunch. The Ottawa Mission serves an average of 1,240 meals and provides a warm place to sleep for 235 people.

Ottawa to become first to designate ‘modern’ heritage Clutch of homes in mid-century neighbourhood to be protected laura.mueller@metroland.com

EMC news - Ottawa will be home to one of the first “modern” heritage districts in Canada. After studying the Briarcliffe neighbourhood since 2010, city heritage staff determined that the area, which features Jetson’s-like midcentury-modernist homes, is worthy of a formal designation that comes with increased protection for the area’s architecture. The neighbourhood was created as a co-op for scientists working at the nearby National Research Council in the 1960s. The clutch of 23 homes in a rocky area along the Ottawa River sprung up as the “young, fresh minds” who came to work at the NRC were looking for a space to live in harmony with the land – a modernist ideal, said Natalie Whidden, one of the Carleton University students involved in a 2010 study that informed the heritage designation project. “If Don Draper wanted to live in Ottawa, this is where he would live,” joked Whidden, referring to the iconic

character from the stylized TV program Mad Men, set in the 1960s. The push to designate the area picked up in earnest in December of 2011, when city council approved a bylaw preventing any alterations to or demolitions of buildings in Briarcliffe during the oneyear heritage study. That move came just before a resident of the neighbourhood, Seema Narula Aurora, got the planning committee’s support for part of a plan to renovate her home and add a large garage for a boat. But an outcry from heritage conservation advocates led council to rethink the decision and put a stop on any changes to buildings in the area until a decision on the heritage district had been made. That home is the Duncan House (19 Kindle Crt.) – one of the most significant houses in the potential district, according to a city staff report. The house was built in 1966 and named for Thaddeus Duncan, one of the original four members of the Briarcliffe co-op. It was designed by Paul Schoeler and is considered an “excellent example of mid-

Tim Tierney, city councillor for the ward, has said the issue is one of the most challenging he has dealt with since being elected in 2010. He told fellow councillors that he received a “barrage” of emails the day before the council vote on 19 Kindle

Crt., but in his opinion, addressing those concerns is the whole point of studying the heritage district. Another east-end councillor, Innes Coun. Rainer Bloess, commented last year that moving forward with the designation meant council-

lors were being “sucked into the sham” going on in the heritage world. The recommendation is based on an original study done by Carleton University masters of Canadian studies students in 2010 under the guidance of Victoria Angel.

Lees parking lot cancelled EMC news - First they were successful in getting rid of a construction area in their green space. Now, residents of Old Ottawa East are celebrating another victory after getting a plan to put a parking lot at 160 Lees Ave. cancelled. The city revealed in December that it had been planning with the University of Ottawa since August to put a temporary 360-space parking lot in a large field beside Springhurst Park that serves as recreational space for 3,000 residents of neighbouring apartment towers, as well as local ruby and ultimate Frisbee teams. The lot was needed for three years as part of an agreement for the city to compensate the university for the loss of parking spaces that will be displaced from the heart of campus during construction of the city’s light-rail transit line. Community members reeled at the news that their “park” would be paved over and filled with cars and construction vehicles, so they sprung into action. Now, two months later, the community is tentatively celebrating its success in cancelling the parking lot. Capital Coun. David Chernushenko revealed the news during a Feb. 12 meeting of the Old Ottawa East Community Association. “The good news is the city and the university have come to a tentative agreement on a different location,” Chernushenko said. The new plan, which still needs approval from the university’s board of directors, would put around 150 permanent parking spaces on a slice of city land adjacent to

Residents in Old Ottawa East are tentatively celebrating saving a large field between Springhurst Park and the Lees Avenue apartment towers. the university’s 200 Lees Ave. campus. The councillor credited the community outcry for prompting the change. “It was very clear, they made their case very strongly and very effectively, my office worked hard and city staff, and I’m sure the University of Ottawa people did, as well, to find a creative solution, which, in the end, will be better for everyone. “This tentative resolution says, if you try hard enough, you can find a better solution,” Chernushenko said. “We’re really happy that they did listen to the community,” said John Dance, president of the Old Ottawa East Community Association. He thanked Chernushenko, Mayor Jim Watson, city staff and the university for their cooperation on the issue. The triangular site at 193 Lees Ave., bounded by Lees Avenue and Highway 417, already has about 30 spaces, Dance estimated. He was fine with the land transaction.

“It’s a useless bit of land, really,” he said of the new site. The land is zoned for major institutional use, which includes a parking lot or parking garage. The city would need to approve the transfer of the land to the university and that is expected to happen in March if the plan is approved. The permanent parking lot at 193 Lees would be supplemented by extending the period that university staff can use the Sandy Hill Arena parking lot during the day to 26 months, from 2016 to 2018. After 5 p.m., the entire lot would be available to arena users. Deputy city manager Nancy Schepers declined to comment on the new proposal until the university had signed off on it. Residents had expressed confusion and concern that the lot at 160 Lees was proposed to contain 56 per cent more parking spaces than the lot being taken over by construction at the heart of the university’s

campus. The new proposal would mean a smaller number of new – but permanent – parking spaces will be built. The city was not prepared to reveal how much it would cost to expand the parking lot. Dance said it would be unlikely that the project could cost more than building a temporary lot at 160 Lees, which was vaguely estimated at $2 million, not to mention tearing it down and rehabilitating the land. City staff said the university’s legal team is also looking into whether the university staff could be given delegated authority to sign off on the change without the need for a university board vote. The plan already has support from university staff and the Chernushenko said he was confident it will gain the university’s support. A spokesman for the University of Ottawa, Patrick Charette, declined to discuss the details of the new proposal, but he acknowledged the university and the city have been working as partners to come up with a solution to the impact of the city’s need to expropriate the university’s parking lot. Charette wouldn’t comment on details of the new proposal or why this arrangement hadn’t been considered in the first place. He said the idea to build a parking lot at 160 Lees came from the city, not the university, as a way to compensate uOttawa for loss of parking as dictated in a memorandum of understanding between the city and university. At a community meeting on Dec. 19, light-rail office staffer Matt Eason told residents the 160 Lees lot was “the only viable option.”

Ottawa’s #1 Ranked Soccer Club

OSU Celebrates 10 years, rise into leading local soccer club It’s been 10 years since members of South Nepean United and the Osgoode-Rideau Soccer Association approved the merger that gave life to Ottawa South United Soccer Club, and set out on an ambitious quest to become the best youth club in Ottawa and amongst the best in Ontario and Canada. “We thought if we followed the principles and vision we setup, that it would realistically take over 15 years,” recalls OSU Founding and current President Bill Michalopulos. OSU is now the only Ottawa club to: earn a Gold Level Club Excellence Award from the Ontario Soccer Association, top the Terra Ontario soccer club rankings and facilitate over 80 soccer scholarships for OSU’s players to universities /colleges all over North America. “By any tangible measure I think we’ve exceeded our vision, set the operating benchmark for soccer clubs and OSU is well resourced, motivated and organized to take on the challenges of the next 10 years,” Michalopulos adds. Both original clubs recognized that there was a gap at the time in how soccer was delivered at the grassroots level in Ottawa and frustrated by the then common organizational and operating models, which were not conducive to the proper development of players and coaches. They realized that with ORSA’s management expertise and South Nepean’s strong soccer programs, combining forces offered great potential. “It was a good marriage of two complimentary clubs,” says Michalopulos. “There was an understanding that 1 + 1 = 3 or that the sum is greater than the two parts coming together. We were simply determined to see our youth play better soccer and have more fun doing it.” Considering the significant challenge of bringing two clubs together under one banner, it was a fairly smooth transition from the start, reflects OSU founding member Rene Braendli. “The leadership from both clubs wanted to make it happen, and I think that was the key,” explains the long-time South Nepean soccer leader and current OSU exec. “And we still have the people to push that vision along.” The new alliance translated well on the ground level too. There’s a family feel that runs strong on teams throughout the club, highlights OSU coach Gord MacGregor. “It’s an environment where we’re all there together, supporting each other no matter what,” describes the former ORSA player. “It’s important that every player, every parent and every coach has that camaraderie. Everyone really is a family. It’s like one big, giant team. OSU hit many key milestones along the way to its 10th anniversary (see sidebar for more details). This includes establishing strategic alliances with leading clubs in the U.S. and Europe – the Dallas Texans and Everton FC – and providing a dedicated staff approach to running a community club in order to provide better programs so players can develop and have more fun. “We still depend on our volunteers and we’re very thankful we have our volunteers to carry most of the load,” Michalopulos notes, adding that those same people recognize the indispensable value of having full-time staff such as Jim Lianos, Club General Manager since almost Day 1. “It wasn’t sustainable. That’s the old model,” Michalopulos emphasizes. “We knew we had to improve on the management organization of the club in order to perform at a certain level in a sustainable manner. “We were able to put together an environment for excellence. On a grand level, we have simply pushed soccer forward in Ottawa and improved the level of play. That’s our biggest accomplishment.” A major project – which now stands as a physical symbol of the club’s progress and perseverance over many years – was the construction of six playing fields in Manotick to accommodate a growing player base that’s now exceeded 6,500 – from youth recreational/ developmental soccer to competitive/elite, through to the adult & senior levels. Within two years, a home clubhouse will be built at George Nelms Sports Park, a further signal of the bright future that lies ahead for OSU. Also playing a key role in ongoing success will be UEFA ‘A’ Licence Coach Paul Harris – a recent groundbreaking addition as OSU Club Head Coach via Everton’s famed youth academy “We want to mimic the best of what they do overseas here in order to improve soccer development for our players and coaches,” Lianos underlines. “And Paul knows the Everton way as well as anyone.” Providing an environment for high performance players to move onto the next level is an OSU trademark, with over 80 players receiving scholarships to play university and college soccer in Canada and the U.S., and others recruited into professional team academies. Without discounting the tremendous success OSU has achieved in consistently winning championships locally, becoming a force in the province’s top youth league, and even besting top opponents from around the world at the exclusive Disney College Showcase and Dallas Cup events, perhaps the biggest source of pride is seeing the deeper impact the club has made on members’ lives over 10 years. “We’re a huge part of the community. You walk around in the summer and every field is being used by the club and you see soccer players all over the place,” Braendli smiles. “It’s been a fantastic journey, but this is not the end. We’re still pushing ahead and we’ve still got to do better. We cannot stand still.”

Brewery’s latest draught goes hog wild Chiarelli takes Hogsback unveils Canada’s first bacon flavoured beer

energy hot seat in new cabinet

Steph Willems steph.willems@metroland.com

EMC news – The Hogsback Brewing Company has become an established player in the Ottawa beer scene since forming in 2010, which might explain the co-owners’ recent adventurousness when it comes to their latest offering. Many beer drinkers have long wished they could mix their favourite food into their favourite brew, but in the case of Hogsback, that wishing turned into reality. Enter HogsbackAporkalypse Now oatmeal bacon stout, the company’s first limited production seasonal beer, released at a party held at the Heart & Crown on Preston Street last Friday. As far as Hogsback owners Paige Cutland, Jerry Demetriadis, Mark Richardson and Frank Costello are concerned, it’s the only beer like it in Canada. It’s described as the perfect mid-winter beer designed to take away the icy chill, which made it an apt remedy for the blizzard blowing outside the launch on Feb. 8. “It’s an idea we’ve all been toying with for a long time,” said Darren Stevens, spokesman for Hogsback. “Everyone thought it was

However, Hogsback intends this to be a limited run beer available only for the next month in Ottawa and Toronto. To make the product, a total of 13 kilograms of bacon (precooked) is fried, has its fat removed, then is suspended in the vat of beer in what sounds like a giant tea bag-like contraption. The bacon that gives the beer its subtle, smoky flavour

– and significant bragging rights – was sourced from a husband-and-wife organic pig farm near Douglas, Ont. Gary and Ida MacDonell run Pork of Yore, a free-range farm raising Tamworth and Berkshire pigs, which are relatively rare outside of Britain. The MacDonell’s made the snowy drive from Douglas to attend the launch, bringing with them samples of their smoked garlic pork sausages to go with the samples of stout. The pairing, as it turns out, is a nearideal combination. Gary recalls being approached by the guys from Hogsback and was surprised to learn their intentions. “When we learned more about them we were pretty hon-

oured,” said Gary. “We market about 100 to 120 pigs a year. It’s a very small, outdoor operation.” Asked if he ever thought he’d be consuming his farm’s product in a glass, Gary, holding a pint of the brew, shook his head. “I like it,” he stated, adding they will be serving it along side pulled pork on a bun at this weekend’s WinterBrewed festival on Sparks Street. Anyone wanting to get their taste buds acquainted with the Aporkalypse Now oatmeal bacon stout had better act fast before kegs run dry on the limited supply. The beer is available only at select locations, among them the Preston Heart & Crown.

EMC news - Bob Chiarelli said he may have taken over the hot seat as the province’s new energy minister, but his focus will stay on the needs of the residents of Ottawa WestNepean. He called his new post a political one and said while it won’t be as much fun as handing out cheques for infrastructure projects he is up to the task. While still in Ottawa, Chiarelli has been in several briefings in preparation for a committee on the cancelled gas plants in Oakville and Mississauga. “All the parties agreed to cancel the gas plans, we just didn’t know the cost at the time,” he said. “It’s the job of the opposition to draw blood. The premier has agreed to appear before the committee so we can show the opposition the process and be as transparent as possible.” In the coming weeks, Chiarelli said he wants to meet with the opposition critics of

the ministry to try and develop a working relationship. He said he is well suited to the post because the opposition trusts him. Chiarelli served on the board of Ottawa Hydro for six years. He also served on the board of The Independent Electricity System Operator, which he described as the heartbeat of the province’s electrical system. “It’s a complex ministry,” Chiarelli said, adding he has to deal with supply, distribution and making sure residents have access to affordable electricity. “It’s very broad, we have to look at generation, conservation, distribution, nuclear refurbishment and expansion,” Chiarelli said. Joining Chiarelli in the cabinet will be Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi who was given the post as provincial Minister of Labour and Madeleine Meilleur, MPP for Ottawa Vanier will hang onto her post as Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services. “I think we have a good cabinet,” Chiarelli said. “We are set to get to work.”

A user’s guide to keeping children safe online WOCRC offers presentation on Internet safety

young girls between the ages of 13 and 16 have also admitted to sexting. As well, children between the ages of 12 and 17 are the largest group of Internet pornography viewers. “You don’t need to feel shy about going in and checking,” said Taylor. “You pay for the phone … you pay for the (Internet).”

EMC news - It’s important that parents set guidelines for their children when it comes to using the Internet. Colleen Taylor, a children’s community developer with the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, spoke to a group of parents at W. Erskine Johnston Public School on Feb. 7 about how to keep children safe online. “You make that judgment call over how much access they have,” she said. “Set some guidelines.” Parents need to talk to their children about the possible dangers of the Internet, including privacy, luring, cyber-bullying and the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships. “Teach them to respect those instincts,” said Taylor. “Help set up the accounts with them. “You can make up a contract with them … so they know ahead of time what their privileges are and the consequences.” Of course, there are many benefits to the Internet as well, she said, citing the ability to research, complete homework and talk to family members living around the world. The biggest priority is “to keep our children safe online,” said Taylor. One way to do that is to keep the family computer in a public location, such as the den or kitchen, and collect cellphones and other devices before bed. Also, talk to them about the importance of keeping passwords private. “Half of them know each other’s passwords,” said Taylor, adding this can make hacking an account easy. “Remind them to keep this information private.” By age 10, about 89 per cent of children have access to the Internet. In 2005, one in seven children had been sexually so-

SOCIAL MEDIA

With new technologies constantly emerging, parents need to know what sites their children are visiting. Twitter, Facebook, instant messaging systems and gaming websites can open up new worlds of possibility and danger.

So many children think once you delete it, it’s gone ... What goes online stays online. COLLEEN TAYLOR WESTERN OTTAWA COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTRE

Know what your children are using the Internet for, says Colleen Taylor, a children’s community developer with the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. licited online, said Taylor. “With instant messaging you may not know who you’re talking to online,” she said. “It’s a great field for someone to impersonate someone else.” Which is why it’s important for parents to have a discussion with their children and let them know if they come across anything disturbing or upsetting, or if they’re asked to meet someone they only know online, they can talk to an adult about it, said Taylor. “If they see something illegal, harmful, upsetting, they can talk to a safe adult.” CYBER-BULLYING

The pervasiveness and immediacy of technology allows

bullying to carry beyond the playground and follow children home. Thirty-five per cent of youth have been threatened online. “Now children can’t get away from all of this,” said Taylor. Signs a child may be the victim of cyber-bullying include becoming withdrawn and fearful, becoming upset after using the Internet or a lack of interest in using the computer when it was something they used to enjoy. Children could be afraid of telling an adult they’re being bullied online because they’re ashamed or afraid they could lose their Internet privileges. “They might think nobody

can help or nobody will help,” said Taylor. Children can now be suspended from school for cyber-bullying thanks to the Safe Schools Act. As well, schools must report cyberbullying and take it seriously. To report online bullying: • Set up a meeting with the school. • Bring specific details in writing, such as text messages, screen shots and emails. • Ask about the school’s procedures to keep children safe. • Change emails, screen names and phone numbers. • If it’s not taken seriously, bring it to the school board. “If it gets to a certain

point, the police can be called,” said Taylor. SEXTING

Sexting is a form of sending sexually suggestive pictures or video. If a child under 18 engages in this type of behaviour or is the recipient of a message, they or their parents could face child pornography charges. “They seem to think it’s quite innocent,” said Taylor. “These things go viral really quickly.” Twenty per cent of teenagers are engaging in sexting, said Taylor, adding 22 per cent are teenage girls and 18 per cent are teenage boys. However, 11 per cent of

Taylor talked about a case study where a student set up a fake Facebook account and sent friend invitations to students she’d never met. Within 24 hours, she had more than 149 friends: “nobody that she actually knew.” The fake account then had access to all the information available on her “friends’” pages. It’s also important to point out that photos, comments and videos posted online never disappear completely once deleted. “So many children think once you delete it, it’s gone,” said Taylor. “What goes online stays online pretty much forever.” It’s important to “think before you click.” Online gaming can become an addiction, and with live chat options young children can become privy to explicit language. “Know what your children are using,” said Taylor, adding parents can check their browser history or ask their children to show them what sites they frequent. “You do have to be aware.”

Chapel Hill residents reject proposal for new townhouses Brier Dodge brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC news - Chapel Hill residents strongly opposed a proposed zoning change and development at 5911 Meadowglen Dr. that would see 54 townhomes built on the former Roger Bergeron and Son produce site. The turnout on Feb. 13 at the Orléans library was so high that residents had to leave with the promise of a second public meeting to be held in a larger facility. The major concern was the type of housing – higher density stacked townhomes – would not fit with the current single family detached homes nearby. “They’re not saying no, they’re saying as it now, is it’s incompatible,” said André Thivierge, who is on an ad hoc residents’ committee, because the area does not have a community association to represent it. “There’s a huge contrast; it’s two planets. We want a development that is comfortable fitting with the community.” There are currently townhouses across the street from the property on Orléans Boulevard, but residents argued their density is lower than what has been proposed by Domicile, the developer, for the Meadowglen site. The proposed townhomes would consist of six buildings with eight units each, and one building with six units. And residents are concerned that the contrasting townhomes at the entrance to the community will bring down the house prices for their sin-

gle-family homes. The entrance to the proposed townhomes would be located on Meadowglen Drive, with the homes backing onto La Chapelle Street. They are also bordered by Orléans Boulevard. In the development proposal, the developer said the location is appropriate for the stacked townhouses because of the location at an arterial and major collector road, and the proximity of the townhomes across Orléans Boulevard. “He can put that proposal forward; whether or not it gets approved is another story,” said Coun. Rainer Bloess. The proposal is still with city planners, who can make a recommendation to council. The residents used the meeting to voice their many concerns to Domicile representative, David Chick, the councillor and city staff. City planner Michael Boughton is the lead planner on the proposal. Boughton said in the 90 comments he received from residents, the top complaint was compatible character, followed by height and mass, traffic and parking. He told residents that their comments “will have a lot of weight” in his evaluation of the application. The residents would like to see the city planner reject the proposal based on a city policy that says a zoning change cannot cause adverse effects. The city has a list of criteria to be used to determine suitability, which will define whether it would cause adverse effects or not. Several residents with homes near-

A meeting about a proposed townhouse development at 5911 Meadowglen Dr. had a much larger turnout than originally expected. The Orléans branch of the Ottawa Public Library meeting room is designed to accommodate 60, so some residents left and will attend a second public meeting still to be announced. by worried that the taller townhomes would allow a view into their backyards and properties, especially with balconies included with the units. They also worried that the one parking spot allowed per unit would not be sufficient. Keeping with city standards of visitor parking per unit, there are 11 visitor parking spots proposed for the townhomes, up from the original six Domicile proposed. Residents raised issues with the traffic studies, saying that they want new data entered for more peak times than the July data collected would have captured. There was also concern that putting in smaller townhomes would

attract more renters. Chick said that Domicile wanted to sell to people who want to live in the homes themselves, but Thivierge said they have no control over who lives in the units once they are sold. He said that the issue with renters is that they don’t always care for the properties as well as owners living in their own homes do. The city has encouraged development of infill areas, expanding growth in already established areas such as the vacant lot on Meadowglen in the Official Plan. One resident asked Chick if Domicile would consider a different proposal with a lower density, but Chick said the company is “firm on the pro-

posal.” “It is important to work with us,” Thivierge said. “There will have to be compromises on our part, but you will have to compromise as well. He said that the company’s determination to see the current proposal constructed “scares the hell” out of him. The development proposal still needs to go to the city’s planning committee and to council for approval. “There’s an issue of social responsibility,” Thivierge said. “There are definitely people prepared to appeal.” There will be another meeting due to the large interest in the meeting, with the date and time still to be announced.

‘Defenders of freedom’ receive Diamond Jubilee medals Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Five defenders of freedom took home Diamond Jubilee medals on Feb. 12 in honour of their service to Canada and the military. Nepean-Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre presented the awards at the Manotick Legion in front of a packed room. “I thought it was important to celebrate soldiers, veterans and legionnaires because of their courageous service to the country,” Poilievre said. “Many have taken serious risks and suffered sacrifices to do the difficult job we ask of them.” Ivan Wyman, past president of the Greely Legion, received the commemorative medal for his work to increase the profile of the branch in the surrounding community. “During his ten years as president, Wyman improved the facility by contributing his time, knowledge and resources,” Poilievre said. Wyman arranged to have hundreds of loads of landfill brought to the legion in order to have the grounds leveled, which transformed the legion into the recreational facility it is today. He has also been responsible for promoting the rental of the facility to help community organizations and sustain the branch. Poilievre added that the Greely Legion’s Remembrance Day ceremony is one of the most touching in the region, and now has ample room to welcome the public, the local cadet core and area veterans. James Duquette, a former

Osgoode resident who now lives in Kingston, was honoured for his role in changing the unfair parental benefits rules for Canadians serving in the military. Several years ago, Duquette’s first child was born four days before Duquette was deployed to Golan Heights for a tour of duty. Fifty-four weeks later, Duquette returned home to discover that the paternity leave he had been looking forward to had expired at the one-year

mark, and could not be deferred. Only people serving jail terms could defer their parental benefits. Duquette told Poilievre of the oversight, and subsequently the federal Fairness for Military Families Act was passed unanimously to allow serving members of the Canadian Forces to defer parental benefits until after their tour. Audrey Renton was awarded the Queen’s medal for her painstaking work in archiving the names and accomplishments of all Rideau area war veterans. Renton is a veteran herself and a war

As a Sergeant with the Royal Air Force, Renton served from 1940 to 1945 as a physical trainer for women working on the base. Renton, 91, has been a member of the Manotick Legion for the past ten years. She also volunteers for organizations like the Anglican Church, the Kars Womens’ Institute and the Kars Recreation Association, and was a long-time leader of the 4-H club. Frank Laturnus was nominated for his community ser-

vice throughout his career with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Now retired, Laturnus was a chief warrant officer and technical instructor for 17 years. He survived a helicopter crash landing in 1964 while in Germany, and upon his return to Canada he was transferred to CFB Uplands where he became mayor of the military community from 1975 to 1977. Laturnus is the past president of the Manotick Legion and recently became a life member at that branch.

“I’ve been issued the (Order of Military Merit), and to get this medal tonight overshadows that,” Laturnus said. “It was really a beautiful treat.” He said the medal represents his volunteer work throughout his 36 years in the military, including his time as mayor of Uplands base, where he organized sports teams and recreation for the families. “Somebody’s got to do it,” he said. “I was always involved.” Retired sergeant David

Palmer was also selected for his continuous advocacy for veterans across the country. He has been working tirelessly on an initiative for a new medal to officially recognize all veterans for their service to Canada. As a member of the Barrhaven Legion and past president of the Rotary Club of Arnprior, he has demonstrated his commitment both to his community and his fellow veterans. He is also responsible for educating local legionnaires about the Veterans’ Bill of Rights.

EMC news - It will be a four-wheeled affair on March 2 when the Nation Valley allterrain vehicle club hosts the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst Ride for Dad for ATV enthusiasts. The popular fundraiser for prostate cancer research has been embraced by motorcycle, snowmobile and water sport groups across Canada, but this is the ďŹ rst time an ATV club will host such an event. Organizer Theo Janssen said the planning committee expects between 100 and 300 ATV users to join them for the 100-kilometre ride though the North Dundas area. The ride will begin at 10 a.m. and includes a barbecue lunch at the midway point and a catered dinner at the home base, Mountain Township Agricultural Hall at 2967 Lough Rd. in South Mountain. The

evening will include a silent auction with items like ATV tires and rims, an ATV snow plow, a crossbow, Ottawa Senators tickets and a Sidney Crosby jersey all donated by local businesses. Participants must register in advance online at www. ridefordad.ca or at the Ottawa Boat and Sportsman Show on Feb. 23 at the Ernst and Young Centre in Ottawa. Registration is $30 and includes lunch and dinner. Riders are encouraged to collect pledges and those who raise more than $100 will have their registration fee refunded. There are also prizes for top earners and general draws for gift baskets and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;tough luck awardâ&#x20AC;? for someone who breaks down on the ride. A celebrity rider, Ottawa Senators alumni Brad Marsh, will also be along for the ride that day.

Janssen said the club has challenged ATV clubs across the province to take part in the ride and match the host clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pledges. He said several clubs are travelling from out of town, including clubs from Barrie, Niagara Falls and the Toronto region, as well as nearby clubs in eastern Ontario. Janssen said the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bi-annual rallies are usually fundraisers, and the decision to support prostate cancer research this year was easy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It affects one in seven men and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great cause,â&#x20AC;? Janssen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the snowmobiles, water sports and motorcycle clubs have done it and raised big funds, and so we thought why not get our name out as a respectable club.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, making a positive name for themselves is a priority for members of the Nation Valley club, who are currently

St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home Loery 2013!

working with the City of Ottawa to approve a pilot project to allow ATVs on some roads and road allowances in the Osgoode area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always operated to clean up the image of ATVing, because before there were never any rules or regulations or areas for ATVs to even operate,â&#x20AC;? Janssen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to do everything on the up and up.â&#x20AC;? Janssen said the club doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a fundraising goal this year, but every bit helps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We basically said the skyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the limit, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our ďŹ rst ride,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure what to expect.â&#x20AC;? To date the Ride for Dad charity has raised $11 million for prostate cancer research across the country. Money raised through the Nation Valley event will be used to ďŹ ght prostate cancer in the Ottawa area. To register or pledge a rider visit www.ridefordad.ca. To donate an item or sponsor part of the event contact Janssen at 613-614-0812.

Chance to take revenge slips away MARY COOK Mary Cook’s Memories lists too. On went the long white pinnies. Emerson hated them almost as much as he hated house chores. “If the guys at school ever saw me in one of these, I’d be a goner,” he growled. He glared at me “and don’t you ever, and I mean ever, tell a soul,” he snarled, “or you will pay dearly.” Suddenly, as if someone had lit a candle over my head, I realized this little bit of knowledge might come in handy down the road. I just might be able to use it to my advantage. So began a tug-o-war so to speak. When Emerson aggravated me, which was too often to suit me, I would threaten to tell everyone at Northcote School what Emerson looked like in a long white pinnie. I even went as far as to draw a stick lad, wearing an apron and printed Emerson’s name under it. I kept it in my primer book reader at the ready and made sure Emerson knew it was there.

Emerson’s teasing came to an abrupt halt, I can tell you. I finally had him where I wanted him. I took my sister Audrey into my confidence and even showed her the drawing of the stick lad. At that stage in her life, Audrey was high on religion. She thought what I was doing could be classified as a sin. I mulled over this bit of information and I certainly didn’t want to bring on the wrath of God, but for the life of me I couldn’t understand for a minute why God would care about a scrap of paper with a stick drawing on it which was supposed to be my brother Emerson. Well, the whole idea of using it to expose Emerson at Northcote School wearing a pinnie came to a crashing end not more than a week after I threatened to expose him. It all happened when Three Mile Herman came to school mad as a hatter. Now, Three Mile Herman’s mother and my mother belonged

to the Women’s Institute together and it seems they got to talking about their families. Three Mile Herman said his mother was told by our mother her idea of switching chores between the sons and daughters and it was good training and made perfect sense if they were ever going to amount to a hill of beans. That’s all she needed to hear. Mother had earned great respect in the Northcote area since everyone knew she had come from New York and therefore must be up on all the latest trends and ideas. So before he could say “jackrabbit,” Three Mile Herman was in an apron doing house chores. Unlike Emerson, he didn’t care who knew it. That didn’t mean he liked either the pinnie or doing house chores, but he like to talk and he liked an audience, so soon everyone at the Northcote School knew about our brothers and the boys in Three Mile Herman’s family doing house chores. Well, that took the sting off for Emerson. There was someone else at Northcote School in the same kettle of fish as he as. I had to tear up the picture I drew and kept in my primer book reader, and Emerson was back to making my life miserable.

River Ward City Councillor Conseillère, quartier Rivière 174 SEWER WORK COMPLETED AHEAD OF SCHEDULE The lining work on the two sewers running under Highway 174 is complete. The 2.1m diameter sewer, west of the Montreal Road interchange near Jasmine Park was completed February 13, 2013. The 1.8m diameter sewer west of Orleans Boulevard overpass was completed on January 24, 2013. Both of these projects were completed on budget and ahead of schedule. These sewers were identified for accelerated lining under the renewal program launched last September. LRT ON ITS WAY: CONFEDERATION LINE PROJECT AGREEMENT FINALIZED On February 12, 2013, the City of Ottawa finalized the Project Agreement with Rideau Transit Group (“RTG”) to design, build, finance and maintain Ottawa’s new 12.5-kilometre Confederation Line Light Rail project as well as widen Highway 417 from Nicholas Street to Highway 174. This marks the commercial and financial close of the Confederation Line project and the beginning of the construction phase. Construction will begin this spring and will include the start of the widening of Highway 417 between Nicholas Street and Highway 174. Work will also begin at the Maintenance and Storage Facility on Belfast Road. RTG will continue to work on completing its designs, hire local sub-contractors and project staff and commence the work necessary to start excavation of the 2.5-kilometre tunnel under downtown Ottawa. The final project agreements related to the Confederation Line project are currently being prepared for posting on ottawa.ca. They will be made available this week to coincide with a ceremonial event between the City and Rideau Transit Group. KNOW A CYCLING ADVOCATE?

merson wasn’t happy. He was grumpy since he got home from school on Friday and Mother announced that Saturday he would be donning an apron. Mother was high on equality of the sexes back in the days when it had yet to become a popular topic, so once a month, the brothers were in the house to do chores and my sister Audrey and I were sent to the barns. I loved the day we were with Father in the cow byre and the stable, even though he did all the heaviest chores himself. Mother thought any child, male or female, wouldn’t amount to a hill of beans unless they knew how to scrub floors, churn butter, put a meal on the table and if need be, bake a batch of bread. She drew the line, however, at teaching the brothers to sew after Emerson, who was allowed to use the old Singer Sewing machine once just to see how it worked sewed the legs closed on Everett’s long underwear. Mother made him sit that night at the kitchen table and pick out every last stitch with a darning needle! So that Saturday, bright and early, my three brothers, Everett, Emerson and Earl, were given their lists – Mother was also high on

Sierra Stanley, 15, will host a fundraiser for Do It For Daron at her family’s sugar bush farm in Edwards on Feb. 23. All proceeds from maple taffy sales will be donated to the charity that supports youth mental health awareness.

Sugar bush fundraiser to sweeten DIFD coffers Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - There’s nothing sweet about struggling with mental health issues, but one Metcalfe student is hoping maple syrup can help. Sierra Stanley, whose family owns Stanley’s Maple Lane Farm in Edwards, will sell traditional maple taffy on Feb. 23 with all proceeds heading to the Do It For Daron foundation. Feb. 23 marks the first day of Stanley’s Farm’s six-week sugar bush season, which continues until April 7. But that day also marks a chance to help Ottawa youth who are struggling with depression, suicidal thoughts and other mental health issues. Between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. visitors can enjoy a maple taffy treat made in a trough of snow for $2.50. The farm is donating the maple syrup supplies, and Stanley and her friend Delaney Hopper will run the shack. All proceeds will go to the Do It For Daron initiative. Stanley, 15, and Hopper, 14, began fundraising for the cause last year when they attended Stonecrest Elementary School in West Carleton, where they both live. They raised just over

$160 selling “Bunny Grams” to students around the Easter season. This year, Stanley is in Grade 9 at Osgoode Township High School in Metcalfe because her family plans to move to the area. Hopper goes to Arnprior High School. But the pair has continued to fundraise for youth mental health programs because they know how important they can be. “Twelve and 13-year-olds shouldn’t be dealing with suicidal thoughts and depression,” Stanley said. She didn’t know DIFD’s namesake Daron Richardson, the daughter of Ottawa Senators assistant coach Luke Richardson who committed suicide at age 14 in 2010, but she believes that programs like those offered through the Royal Ottawa and Youth Services Bureau could have saved her. “Someone could have probably helped her, they just didn’t know how.” This year Stanley and Hopper hope to beat last year’s final tally and raise $200 – although that goal could easily be overcome within the first few hours on the farm. Sugar bush season organizer Susan Faith-Lecoupe said anywhere between 400 and 1,500

people could visit the farm if the weather is nice. “If each person buys a taffy, it adds up to a significant number. And some people do buy more than one,” she said. The farm will be open for sugar bush tours every Saturday and Sunday from Feb. 23 to April 7, and from March 12 to 15 during Ontario’s March Break. The farm offers sleigh and wagon rides, a chance to meet the animals who live on the farm, and of course a demonstration of how maple syrup is made. Beginning March 16, the farm will also run Easter egg hunts for the little kiddies on Saturdays and Sundays. “The kids and their parents or grandparents take a tractordrawn wagon into the bunny bush and are told a story by the two Easter bunnies, that they’ve lost their eggs. The little kids will help them find them,” Faith-Lecoupe said. The children will receive a peanut-free goodie bag to take home. Participants must register in advance on the website, www.stanleysfarm.com. The cost is $5 per adult and $7 per child. The farm is located at 2452 Yorks Corners Road in Edwards.

Rotary Club of Ottawa South honoured with giant tulip The Rotary Club of Ottawa South received a rare honour last Fall, when the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation organized a dedication ceremony to thank them for their amazing support. Many people will recognize the giant colourful tulips within the Cancer Survivors Park at the corner of Industrial and Riverside, and now, the first ever tulip dedication was held to thank the Rotary Club of Ottawa South for its incredible generosity supporting cancer care. Since 2000, the Rotary Club of Ottawa South has helped improve the lives of thousands of cancer patients in our community. That’s because for the last 12 years, the Club has been donating proceeds from its annual golf tournament to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Linda Eagen, President and CEO of the Cancer Foundation said: “We are very fortunate that Ottawa is such a caring community with citizens who are prepared to step up and help others. And, the perfect example of this altruism is shown by the dedication of the members of the Rotary Club of Ottawa South. Year after year, they commit to helping cancer patients and their families when they are faced with a devastating diagnosis. The club’s generosity is truly humbling and inspiring and it’s a partnership we truly value!” SHAWN GIBSON

Bryan Cochrane, right, and his rink from the City View Curling Club took on Howard Rajala, left, and his rink from the Rideau Curling club in an all-Ottawa duel in Draw 5 of the Dominion Tankard in Barrie on Feb. 6. Rajala won 9-5.

Ontario’s top curler Howard takes tankard Shawn Gibson

EMC sports - The fans knew it. The Barrie organizers hoped for it. Glenn Howard provided it. The Coldwater Curling Club’s rink is off to their eighth straight Brier having won in dramatic fashion at Sunday’s Dominion Tankard at the Barrie Molson Centre. In an all-Simcoe County battle, Howard faced off against Joe Frans and his Bradford Curling Club team in a match that saw the winning shot rely on a measure. Having taken a 6-3 lead in the seventh end, Howard’s faithful began the “Ontario” chants as they sensed another win by the local boy. Frans, having defeated Howard on Wednesday’s Draw 5 by a score of 8-3, was not going quietly. Strategically winning the small battles, Frans pushed the game into the 10th end with single points in the eighth and ninth. “You have to go into your next game with a clear mind,” said Howard. “Frans was fantastic the last time we played, but that doesn’t mean it carries over to the next. We knew we had to play near perfect to top their rink.” The Tankard trophy sat waiting on the awards table as a blue and yellow stone lie even with each other on the button. Frans would attempt

to place his last rock in an unhittable spot, but Howard would use his final shot to move it out and leave the only rocks that mattered waiting for a measure. As Wayne Middaugh of Howard’s rink and Ryan Werenich of Team Frans handled the measuring, a packed BMC waited quietly and anxiously. Middaugh would extend his hand, signaling the end and a 7-5 Coldwater victory. With the arena cheering, Howard explains what it’s like to win in his own backyard. “We always want to win, everywhere we go, but winning in Barrie was special,” said Howard. “Our families were in attendance as were our friends and this place was loud. Kudos to all those that put it on and the fans for coming out.” Frans will head back to the drawing board and know that his Bradford rink is able to be the toast of Simcoe County after hanging with the best. Team Howard, which includes Victoria Harbour’s Middaugh, Shanty Bay’s Brent Laing and Kanata’s Craig Savill, will represent Ontario at the 2013 Tim Hortons Brier in Edmonton during the week of March 2 to 10. Howard Rajala of the Rideau Curling Club and Bryan Cochrane from the City View CC were the Ottawa representatives and did not have

the tournament they hoped for. Rajala finished the week with a 2-8 record with one of the wins being Wednesday’s Draw 5 against Cochrane in a 9-5 final. “We weren’t as sharp as we’d hoped to be, but all in all we really enjoyed the week,” said Rajala. “Anytime you can play at the provincial level, it is special and this is something you carry with you and plan for next year.” As far as the upcoming Brier, there is no doubt in Rajala’s mind who he’s cheering for. “You had to know Glenn and the boys would be in the final of the Tankard and now we have to get behind Ontario and hope they bring it home.” Cochrane finished slightly better with a 4-6 record and believes that it’s only a matter of time before Ottawa is on top of the nation’s curling mountain. “We had a wonderful time and only wish we could have had a better result,” said Cochrane. “It won’t be long though until you see a team from around here make it big. We have so many great rinks, there is no doubt in my mind that this city will produce a top team that will compete every year.” Next year’s Tankard takes place in Smiths Falls, which will be a lot closer for Ottawa curling fans to get to and cheer on their favourite teams.

This past year’s proceeds were directed to the Cancer Coaching programs at the Maplesoft Centre. In 2011, the Cancer Foundation opened Canada’s first centre for cancer survivorship. This is a new model that addresses the physical, emotional, psychological, informational and practical concerns of cancer patients and those closest to them. More than 1,100 members have already registered and participated in more than 30 Cancer Coaching Programs offered at the Maplesoft Centre, supported by the Club’s generosity. In past years, the Rotary Club of Ottawa South also donated funds to support the CyberKnife Robotic System. The CyberKnife is now in its second year of operation at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre. The members’ donation helped support this stateof-the-art equipment – with Ottawa being one of only 3 cities in Canada to have it. The CyberKnife delivers muliple beams of high-dose radiation with extreme precision and destroys tumours while minimizing radiation to surrounding healthy tissue. And a decade ago, the Rotary Club of Ottawa South helped give hope to families in our community by supporting local researcher Dr. John Bell and his team at the Ottawa Health Research Institute. Dr. Bell is recognized as one of the world-leaders in the field of targeted cancer therapeutics—specifically with his research in the area of oncoytic virus therapy. This treatment option is now in Phase 2 human clinical trials, including in Ottawa, and showing very promising results for patients. Thanks to the support of the Club, patients in Ottawa are getting access to this innovative treatment option long before it is available anywhere else in the world. The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is tremendously proud of its relationship with the Rotary Club of Ottawa South and is honoured to be their partner to help improve cancer care throughout the region for thousands of people.

Feeling the love Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - Residents at Orchard View Living Centre in Manotick Station were feeling the love on Feb. 14 when building owner Joe Princiotta stopped by to celebrate Valentine’s Day with them. The developer played the piano for the better part of an hour, inviting gathered residents to sing along to romantic golden oldies like “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary” and “You Are My Sunshine.” Before he left, Princiotta passed out red roses to all the ladies in the building.

How to manage diabetes at night them to get the sleep that they need.” According to a recent survey of diabetes patients and their healthcare providers revealed that: • More Canadian patients worry about experiencing a hypoglycemic event at night than during the day (34 per cent). • The most common reasons for mis-timing or reducing doses were low blood sugar levels and attempting to reduce the risk of having a hypoglycemic event. • Patients are also losing sleep over the guilt they feel with missed dosing, as six in ten Canadian patients surveyed said they worry about missing the occasional insulin dose, and seven in ten feel guilty when they do.

• The good news is that it is never too late to take action to prevent or manage hypoglycemia. Here are three tips to prevent nocturnal hypoglycemia: • Test blood sugar levels before bed. • If the test shows low blood sugar levels, some recommendations for leveling out glucose levels include: bedtime snacks such as 15grams of carbohydrates or a glucose tablet, a glass of milk or a glass of orange juice. • Talk to your healthcare professionals to learn how to identify and reduce the risk of nighttime hypoglycemia. Patients should talk to their doctor about new insulin therapy options to help manage nocturnal hypoglycemia.

EMC news - What’s usually on your mind before you fall asleep? Rather than reflecting on their day or thinking about tomorrow’s tasks, Canadians with diabetes who take insulin, getting ready for a good night’s sleep can be a challenge because every night they must prepare their bodies to rest without food or insulin intake for a prolonged period of time. Without the proper balance of insulin before bed, they can experience nocturnal hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia occurs when blood sugar (or glucose) levels drop. It can cause confusion, loss of consciousness and even result in death. “Testing blood sugar throughout the day is necessary to maintain a constant healthy blood sugar level, but during sleep hours, it is difficult to test. For people living with diabetes, nocturnal hypoglycemia can be daunting,” said Dr. Woo, endocrinologist, Health Sciences Centre. “Sleep is an important indicator into how a person will perform throughout the day so whenever my patients and I are discussing treatment options, I always take into account the patient’s lifestyle to insure they are using a treatment that will work within their routine as well as allow

Greely witch embraces blog before big show Wicked Witch of the West offers behind the scenes look at Greely Players production Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news - All things considered, Almira Gulch’s first foray into community theatre is going pretty well. The Kansas spinster is constantly surrounded by annoying children, and that garden-grubbing dog Toto tries her patience at every rehearsal. But other than that, she’s finding the process of staging an amateur production fascinating - at least, according to her new blog. Miss Gulch (otherwise known as Greely resident Anne Peterson) has been blogging behind the scenes of the Greely Players’ production of The Wizard of Oz, which the group will stage at the end of March at the Greely Community Centre. Peterson’s character Gulch has been cast as the Wicked Witch of the West, a fitting role for a miserly old woman who lives alone and spends much of her time trying to rid the county of pesky, trespassing canines. But the experience of acting in a play has perhaps

softened Gulch towards her fellow man; in her Feb. 8 post she admitted how much fun a production can be, and even became a little too excited about Dorothy’s ruby slippers.

I’m just letting my little evil side come out. Apparently I have a pretty wicked cackle. ANNE PETERSON

Peterson said Gulch’s blog is her way of connecting to the audience and offering some insight into how a stage production comes together. Interested readers can find her weekly musings at www. witchwitch2.blogspot.com. Peterson is returning to the Greely stage for the first time in 10 years, after a decade of behind the scenes management. She’s returning, she said, because she couldn’t resist such a wicked role.

“It was a fabulous opportunity to play another fun character part,” said Peterson, whose last role with the Players was Mammy Yokum in the 2002 production of Li’l Abner. Playing the witch was a no-brainer, she added, because it gives her a chance to harness a side of her personality she rarely entertains. “People tell me it’s the absolute opposite of my character,” she said. “I’m just letting my little evil side come out. Apparently I have a pretty wicked cackle.” Curtains open Wednesday, March 20 and the 55-person cast will offer six shows including two matinees that week. Every second year, the theatre company chooses a production that involves lots of children. In 2011, they staged Willy Wonka, which starred five main children and included a chorus of Oompa Loompas. This year’s cast of kids will play munchkins, evil flying monkeys and crows. For tickets or to follow Gulch’s blog, visit www. greelyplayers.ca.

City redirects cash to hire new parks planners Laura Mueller laura.mueller@metroland.com

have enough staff to ďŹ nish the ďŹ ne detailed work and get construction started. Councillors voted 15-6 to take the money needed for parks planners from a citywide fund, but not before a spirited debate over how the positions should be paid for. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli emphasized the process should be fair to different areas of the city. He felt the best way to do that was to raid a citywide emergency fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to send a message on this that this should

be something that is an operational priority of the city and it will be a priority thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s included in the next budget â&#x20AC;Ś and that it will be handled fairly across the city so no matter which area of the city you happen to live in and represent, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get the same level of recognition and possibility,â&#x20AC;? Chiarelli said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) not being handled particularly well by council,â&#x20AC;? he added. Planning committee chairman and Alta Vista Coun. Peter Hume disagreed with Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency fund

idea. Growth needs to pay for growth, he said, so park planners should be paid with the funds collected to build the parks everywhere in the city. Chiarelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea would have meant that levies on development would only pay for park planning in the suburban area, whereas urban councillors could draw on a citywide fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing here is setting two different standards. Fundamentally I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right,â&#x20AC;? Hume said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give the same beneďŹ t to

my residents â&#x20AC;Ś I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have that privilege today.â&#x20AC;? There are 70 parks projects on the books, 23 of which fall under the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cash-in-lieu of parklandâ&#x20AC;? issue that was under discussion. Mayor Jim Watson said he will ensure the city ďŹ nds a more permanent solution during the next budget. The Feb. 13 council meeting was the third time councillors have hammered on the issue. It was the only item of major contention during the 2013 budget process.

EMC news - Paying for staff needed to design new parks set off two lengthy debates between suburban and urban councillors last week. In the end, city council agreed to take approximately $220,000 needed to hire two parks planners for 2013 out of a citywide fund that would otherwise be spent on features for parks. Council rejected the idea of raiding a citywide emergency fund to ďŹ nd the cash.

The issue arose after Capital Coun. David Chernushenko complained about the lack of cash for parks planners during the 2013 budget process late last year. Developers pay levies on new construction that are split and put into ward-speciďŹ c and citywide funds for building new parks. The problem in the urban area is that although residents and the councillor have agreed on the basics for a new park and the money from developers is in the bank, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks department doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Vote for the next dino star at Nature museum Mystery, intrigue surround museum research project Michelle Nash michelle.nash@metroland.com

EMC news - Reassemble an entire skeleton or answer age-old questions concerning a horned dinosaur? Provide a better understanding of the evolution of an uncommon beast, find a new, never-seenbefore duck-billed dinosaur or uncover a potential rare carnivorous jaw? These intriguing choices are what face visitors to the Canadian Museum of Nature when they help choose the museum’s next palaeo star. Dino Idol is currently underway at the downtown museum, inviting patrons who visit the dinosaur exhibition to help pick the museum’s next research project. The exhibition includes five dinosaur plaster casts, all with mystery and excitement waiting to be found inside. The idea came from the museum’s post-doctoral fellow, Jordan Mallon, who said he thought it would be a great

way for the public to interact with the museum’s research department. Mallon and fossil curator Kieran Shepherd are both excited about the new exhibition’s potential. “From a collection perspective, they all would be pretty cool to open up,” Shepherd said of the five specimens currently in storage. For the past 100 years, the fossils have been kept in field jackets – burlap and plaster casings – since fossil collectors Charlie H. Sternberg and his son Charles M. Sternberg unearthed the bones in Alberta. The museum has kept them in storage ever since. “This is incredibly exciting for me,” Mallon said. “You’re the first one looking at these things for the first time in close to 100 years.” The “contestants” for Dino Idol are: • Regal Ed, a partial skeleton of a duck-billed dinosaur. • Canadian Club, believed to be the back half of an armored dinosaur. • Stumpy, the skull of a horned dinosaur that has resorbed (a re-distribution of the horn’s calcium for other purposes such as. laying eggs or healing injuries) its entire right brow horn – something

Mallon said is incredibly rare and has never been observed. • Mystery Jaw; the field notes from Sternberg simply say carnivorous dinosaur jaw, but looking at the size of the casting, Mallon predicts it’s from a huge carnivore. • Headrosaur, this time the skull of a duck-billed dinosaur. Basic research of this casting suggests this skull could be something never seen before. Mallon said he is excited by the prospect of any one of these specimens being revealed through the contest.. “Teeth, claws, clubs: there is a variety to choose from,” Mallon said. The exhibition has illustrations above each casting, based on what Mallon described to a graphic artist. “The illustrations are awesome and I think it nicely represents what we think would be in there,” Mallon said. “Chances are we will be wrong, but that is what is exciting; to find out.” Going from choosing a winning specimen to the day it goes on display at the museum will take time, however. Some of the plaster jackets can take years to chip away at using a tiny tool like a jackhammer, powered by air-pres-

sure. The five candidates have been chosen partly because the work may only take a few months to a year. Both Shepherd and Mallon didn’t want the voting public to have to wait too long to see what was

inside. These five candidates are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the museum’s research facility, with thousands of other castings waiting to be opened. In his 25 years at the muse-

um, Shepherd has only participated in two previous openings of a field jacket. Voting takes place until March 17. The winner will be revealed on March 19. Regular admission to the museum is required to vote.

Sandy is a spayed female, brown tabby, Domestic Shorthair cat that is 3 years old. She was brought to the shelter as a stray on January 2, 2013 but is now available for adoption. She is looking for a quiet family that will give her time to warm up to them without approaching her too quickly. She needs slow quiet movements when being approached and doesn’t like to be rushed. Once she warms up to you she is a very loving feline companion.

Whistler is a 5 month old, neutered male, Rex mix. He was brought to the shelter as a stray on December 20, 2012 but is now ready for adoption! Whistler is an active rabbit who enjoys daily exercise exploring his cage and would love the opportunity to free roam. He does enjoy chewing on things so keep all cords and important items out of his way! He is looking for a forever home where he will be allowed to exercise daily and will be provided with nutritious food, water, and a clean habitat!

For more information about these or other animals available for adoption, please call the Adoption Centre at 613-725-3166 ext. 258 or visit www.ottawahumane.ca.

animal tooth paste is the number one way to help prevent bacterial growth in his mouth! Don’t use human toothpaste, as some of the ingredients in our everyday toothpaste are harmful to animals if ingested. Preventative diets: There are specially designed foods that have been developed using scientific research to help stimulate your animal’s gums. These foods promote the breakdown of bacteria that can cause tartar and periodontal diseases. Talk to your veterinarian about which diet is best for your pet. Provide safe chew-toys: Chew-toys not only provide your animal with enjoyment, they help remove plaque, and for puppies, help soothe itchy gums during teething! Provide your pet with dental chews, natural chews, and dental chew toys to help stimulate his gums naturally! Visit the vet: Schedule regular check-ups with your vet! Talk to your vet about preventative dental care and how to decrease the likelihood of your pet needing dental work done down the road. Your pocket book will thank you later!

My name is Chelsea and I am an English Golden Retriever who is almost a year old. I live with my mom, dad, two sisters and two tempting cats! I love my peanut butter kongs and cheese. I like to go on long walks all winter and chew on sticks and other things I am not supposed to eat. My favorite thing is to roll around rubbing my back on the hard snow. I like to see people and other dogs on my walk and I always hope to go into the Expedition Store when I go through the village. They love dogs! My parents think I am the best puppy because I never get into any trouble. Except for when it comes to those cats!!!

Do you pay close attention to your pet’s oral health? Do you brush your animal’s teeth regularly? Biologically, animal mouths are pretty similar to our own. Teeth are susceptible to tartar build-up and bacterial infections, with more serious infections potentially growing and damaging the gums and bones that hold the teeth in place. In some more serious cases, infection can spread through the blood stream to other organs, sometimes resulting in deadly infections in the heart, kidneys and/or liver. Oral care is the most common element of pet health care that is overlooked. Why is oral care for your companion animal so important? Mainly because your pet may not show any obvious signs of dental disease until it is quite advanced, once the disease becomes painful or infected. At this stage, damage has already done and may be extremely costly to resolve. Research has estimated that just over two-thirds of all dogs and cats over 3 years of age have some form of periodontal or dental disease. Here are a few ways you can improve your pet’s oral health: Brush your animal’s teeth: Brushing your animal’s teeth with a specialized
