MacLean school out of space Nine rooms to be added starting this summer Eddie Rwema

EMC news – Construction work to add new classrooms and kindergarten rooms at Steve MacLean Public School is expected to commence in June with completion currently scheduled for early 2013, Gloucester South-Nepean public school board trustee Mark Fisher has confirmed. “The permanent expansion will add three kindergarten rooms and six classrooms to the school,” said Fisher. The addition will also include more washrooms and some storage and office space. The school is currently operating at 146 per cent of its theoretical capacity and requires 12 portables on site to serve its 902 students. The expansion serves to help curb the problem of overcrowding and should allow the school to accommodate the growing number of kids attending the Spratt Road school. “The school was running at 146 per cent utilization so that goes to tell you that the school is overcrowded,” said Fisher. Fisher said the issue of overcrowding is one that has been on every parent’s mind in Findlay Creek, Riverside South and Barrhaven. “They are concerned about overcrowding in schools and having their children in portables,” he said.

Ridgemont gets the blues Fundraiser brings famous alumnus back to school Eddie Rwema

EMC news – A Ridgemont High School alumnus and internationally-renowned blues guitarist and singer will be strumming to revive the school’s once grand auditorium. JW Jones and his band will per-

form at a charity concert scheduled for March 1 to help raise funds to renovate the school’s auditorium, which has been home to countless school and community performances over the years. Due to age and wear and tear, some of the auditorium’s features – many of them original to the building that was opened in 1957 – are in bad shape and in dire need of renovation. “I have so many fond memories of my time at Ridgemont High School and can’t wait to return for such an exciting event,” said Jones. “This is a great way to bring an auditorium where many talents have given passionate performances, back to life. It’s sure to be a fun night!”

According to school principal Richard King, the cost of renovating an aging building is high and the financial resources to repair or replace damaged equipment in the auditorium are limited, which is why they opted for a fundraiser to raise the much needed funds to restore the auditorium to its original glory. “There are a few things in the auditorium that require repairs,” said King. The renovation will include replacing curtains, rigging, sound equipment, lighting, stage refinishing, and seat repair. “At the moment there isn’t any single curtain that works properly in the auditorium,” said King.

Additional permanent space is urgently required at the school due to higher than forecast development densities within the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing attendance area and the future implementation of the Ministry of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-day kindergarten program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am happy with the addition but I also think that given the growth of Riverside South we now need to turn our attention to the possibility of a new

Fisher said that having a high school in Riverside South presents a unique opportunity to relieve pressure on LongďŹ elds-Davidson Heights Secondary School in Barrhaven, which opened in 2009 and already needs expansion. Fisher said he has a broad agenda of looking at growth in new communities and looking at how to adequately address their school needs in a timely manner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to come up with a better funding model in Ontario to make sure we are able to build schools when the community needs them not 10 years after the fact,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Students, community to benefit from upgrades Continued from front

The school put together an auditorium refurbishment committee that is spearheading the campaign to raise funds. The committee is counting on students, staff, former students, and the entire community to help champion the cause. “We have been holding different events to raise money and so far the response has been very positive,” King said. “When you take on a project of this magnitude you need the support of the entire school and the greater community.” Their goal is to raise more than $15,000 from JW Jones’ concert. Besides the concert, the committee has also been soliciting potential sponsors. King said he is optimistic the community will turn out in large numbers given the role the auditorium plays in their daily lives. “The auditorium is not only important to the school, it’s important to the community,” said King. “Our school is very much a hub in the sense that every night of the week there is something going on here.” He added that the auditorium is used throughout the year and anybody can use it if they go through the school board. King said he hopes the concert will also help raise the profile of the school. “It is not only an opportunity to showcase our school and auditorium but the people who work here and go to school here everyday.”

Last month Ridgemont High School named its auditorium after JW Jones’ brother Gabe WynneJones who passed away in 2005 in a car accident. Gabe graduated from Ridgemont in 2005. AUDITORIUM NAMED AFTER JONES BROTHER

Ridgemont High School principal Richard King is at the forefront of an effort by the auditorium refurbishment committee. A March 1 concert by JW Jones could raise $15,000 for the project. King’s band Quicksand will be the opening act.

“I am very excited. I am a fun of JW Jones. I enjoy playing music my-

self, so I am looking forward to the actual event,” said King.

“As a tribute to Gabe we have named the auditorium after him,” said King. “When I heard that they named the auditorium after Gabe, I wasn’t surprised about him being the perfect candidate, but more so that King came up with this wonderful idea from the heart to make it happen,” said Jones. “My whole family went to Ridgemont, including my uncle Tim Wynne-Jones, a brilliant author who has recently been made an officer in the Order of Canada,” he continued, adding that as a family, they were honoured to see Gabe’s name in large print for all to see. “If anyone deserves this kind of tribute, it’s him. He was everything a true Spartan aspires to be: a smart, charismatic guy with a huge heart and a smile that could light up a room.” JW Jones will perform on March 1 at 7.30 p.m. Tickets are $30 for VIP seating, $20 for adults and $15 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the school or by calling 613-733-4860. For more information visit www.

Did you know that it has a French Immersion Program leading to OCDSB French Immersion and Extended French Certificates? Did you know that one of last year’s graduates received scholarships and grants of over $100,000 to go to university? Check it out at More Transparency and Equity regarding the Transfer Policy As your Trustee, I brought forward the following motion to make the Student Transfer Policy more transparent and equitable to all students and parents: That staff develop and maintain a parent guide fully explaining the student transfer policy in plain and helpful language and include a reference to this parent guide in the current policy; and That an interim parent guide will be made available in time for the transfer application period in February 2012. On January 24, the Board of Trustees gave unanimous support to this motion. Parent Guides have been given to all principals who have been advised to distribute them with transfer application forms. It is also available online at I have asked the Director of Education to seek input from the Ottawa Carleton Assembly of School Councils (OCASC) on how the Parent Guide can be made even more helpful to parents and students. Better Bus Service for our Students One of my New Year’s resolutions was “to work hard for fairer provincial funding for better busing of our students” (EMC December 29). The Board has begun a process of harmonization of busing policies with those of the English Catholic Board. This step will give us a higher “efficiency” status from the Ontario Government, and should result in more provincial funding that will begin to fill the gap between our transportation costs and revenues. More important, it will give our students more equitable busing. This process will move in phases. During the first phase, which I voted in favour of at the Board of Trustees meeting on February 14, walking distance for students in grades 7 and 8 will be reduced from 3.0 kilometers to 1.6 kilometers. Also, the Board supports changes and harmonization of the criteria for determining hazards (for example, dangerous intersections) with the English Catholic Board. However, before any changes are made, the Board strongly encourages our busing consortium, the Ottawa Student Transportation Agency (OSTA) to conduct public consultations. We need your input! The Drummond Report The Drummond Report, which was commissioned by the Ontario Government to provide recommendations on ways to cut the provincial deficit was released on February 15. The recommendations to the Premier on education are far reaching. I will be working hard to protect the investments that this government has made in public education. The importance of protecting these investments cannot be overstated. Publicly and fully funded education is the key to Ontario’s future. %''(#(-+&%.

EMC news – In recent months, the Royal Canadian Legion Strathcona Branch 595 has added 50 new members thanks to a membership drive that started shortly after it moved to its new location on Bank Street.. Legion president Brian Madden said the new location played a significant role in attracting new members. “The location is very good and appropriate,” said Madden. The Legion moved into their new home at 1940 Bank St. at the beginning of September following the sale of its old location at 99 Greenfield Ave., which legion officials said had outlived its usefulness. Madden attributes the growth to a comfortable and spacious facility, availability of free parking and nearby transit links. The location has also been able to attract more people living in south Ottawa who find it convenient. To celebrate this success, the legion has organized a new members’ day on Feb. 26 to officially welcome newcomers and bring them up to date on branch activities and to provide an opportunity to get to know older members. “We are trying to have as many new members as possible to come in and learn about the legion,” said Madden. In the past five years, membership at Ontario legions has declined by nearly 15 per cent, a downward trend legion officials said can be attributed to Canada’s aging Second World War and Korean War veterans. Madden said at the new location they are able to do things they were unable to do

“We have people who were in military, people whose family members were in the military and a lot of young people who like what the legion stands for.” Legion branches support other community based organizations financially, using funds raised through club-

house operations, bingos, raffles and Nevada-style lottery tickets. Each year, hundreds of thousands of dollars are donated by branches in Ontario to other community and service organizations. Recently the legion held an event to welcome veterans from Afghanistan. “We had a big dinner and entertainment for them as part of interesting them to join the legion and learn what it is all about,” said Madden, adding that in the past many

younger veterans were averse to joining the Legion because they thought it was a place full of older people. “We are currently making the legion lively with entrainment – things that younger people would enjoy,” said Madden. He said it was exciting to see the legion active again. “We are ecstatic that people are starting to come,” he said. “We still have slow days but compared to what we did before, it’s gotten a lot better. It is a big difference.”

Seniors injured as ceiling collapses at community centre fered a cut to his head and cheek and was also taken to hospital. Another 73-year-old woman was also cut on the head and taken to hospital. Dan Chenier, the city’s general manager for parks and recreation, said the cause of the collapse is so far unknown. He said the city brought in a professional engineer to inspect both the piece of the ceiling that fell as well as the remaining panels that remained in place. “We are expecting a report from the engineer soon,” said Chenier. He added that the debris that fell has been cleaned up and the remaining panels that were covering the rest of the ceiling were taken down and disposed of. He said the concrete ceiling that remains needs a paint treatment before the room reopens. The program schedules for that room have either been moved to another room or rescheduled. Chenier expects activities to return to normal this week.

EMC news – Three elderly squaredancers were rushed to hospital on the evening of Feb. 15 after a section of a ceiling at the Canterbury Community Centre collapsed on them. Paramedics said about 30 seniors were in the hall when part of the ceiling collapsed, striking three seniors. The main roof did not collapse, paramedics said. Police and fire crews were also on scene to help. “Three people were hit,” said Ottawa paramedic spokeswoman Stephanie Logan. She said three seniors were assessed and transported to hospital. A 74-year-old woman was cut on the top of her head and suffered some minor confusion after the accident. Paramedics dressed her wounds and immobilized her with a backboard and neck collar as a precaution before transporting her to the hospital. A 73-year-old man suf-

AA baseball rounding third City’s plan would see major upgrades to Conventry Road stadium Laura Mueller

File Photo

Plans to bring minor league baseball to the stadium in Overbrook leaves the future of the stadium’s current tenants, the interprovincial league Ottawa Fat Cats, uncertain.

EMC news – A plan to bring minor league baseball to the stadium in Overbrook received resounding support from the city’s de facto executive committee on Feb. 16. But the move leaves the future of the stadium’s current tenants, the interprovincial league Ottawa Fat Cats, uncertain. The recent departure of Duncan MacDonald, who had served as general manager of the Fat Cats, may have been related to the direction the city is moving in a partnership with Beacon Sports Capital Partners, suggested Brian Carolan, president of Ottawa Sports Group, which runs the Fat Cats. Beacon Sports is the group behind the proposal to bring a AA-level club to the stadium, a plan approved by the committee. The Fat Cats are still in talks with Beacon, Carolan said, but no progress has been made in creating a partnership that would allow both teams to share the stadium. MacDonald didn’t respond to a request for comment before this paper’s deadline. The plan approved by the committee would see major upgrades to the Coventry Road stadium starting this spring, including the installation of artificial turf. While the mayor and city

manager assured the committee that every effort would be made to ensure the Fat Cats could play their season there this year, that begins at home on the May long weekend, city manager Kent Kirkpatrick said it would be a “difficult challenge.” City councillors who support baseball and support the Fat Cats efforts to bring new life and popularity to baseball in Ottawa said it’s possible the city could find another space for the Fat Cats to play, possibly by constructing temporary stands in a park. “They showed what we could do with baseball in this city once again, and how we can create energy and fun and affordable entertainment,” said baseball booster and councillor for Orleans Ward Bob Monette. “I want assurances that they city will do everything it can to ensure the Fat Cats can work through the construction schedule so they can play their 2012 schedule.” But given the large crowds the interprovincial team has been attracting, Carolan said it’s unlikely they would be able to find a site that would work. “At no time did the city indicate to us that we weren’t going to come back, or that there was even any question,” he said. “So what’s happened in the last week or 10 days is concerning to us and it’s con-

cerning to our league.” The deal approved with Beacon would see the city would spend $5.7 million on stadium maintenance and upgrades, while Beacon would contribute $5.5 million. It would be a 10-year lease and the city would charge $257,000 each year in rent. BANDING TOGETHER FOR BASEBALL

Damian Ford, the manager of the University of Ottawa Gee Gees baseball team, told the committee that Ottawa has a great baseball community that was “forced underground” with the failure of the Ottawa Lynx. “There is no shortage of community ball here, but there is a lack of pride in our city,” Ford said. Mike Crepin of East Nepean Little League agreed. He said having a local professional team influences kids to

join the sport. “Any major-league association is going to raise the profile of baseball, including amateur and little league baseball, in Ottawa,” Crepin said. But representatives from Beacon were mum on what that Eastern League affiliate might be, despite persistent rumours the owners of the Binghamton Mets are working on a deal to sell the club to Beacon Sports, which would move it to Ottawa for the start of the 2013 season. There have also been reports suggesting once the Binghamton club was relocated, the club would look to secure an affiliation deal with the Toronto Blue Jays, as their current deal in New Hampshire runs out at the end of the 2012 season. In subsequent media stories, the Binghamton Mets management denied the club had been sold or had received any inquiries about selling the franchise. Peter Bachelor, representing a group called Friends of the Blue Jayz, said he was in complete support of the proposal, “especially if it’s under the auspice of the Blue Jays.” Kanata South resident David Gourlay announced he was pulling together local business leaders called the Champions of Ottawa Baseball initiative to bring community leaders together to help make the sport sustainable and successful in this city.

When fences are good for the neighbours A

dip in the backyard pool is a summer ritual for thousands of city residents. Jumping in the water for a little tomfoolery or maybe to swim a few lengths is a mental distraction. It’s natural that while having fun, we don’t spend time mulling over the risks associated with the activity. But back on dry land it’s worth considering the dry facts.

The city issues as many as 900 permits for new pool enclosures each year. The permit system and associated bylaws are there to prevent tragedies. Residents with outdoor pools must install fences that keep neighbouring children out of the water. The city is now considering an upgrade to that requirement. New rules being considered would require fences to be designed so they

are more difficult to climb. Gates leading to the pool will have to be kept locked. The greatest change being discussed would see all new pool enclosures separate the pool from the house. Today a young child living next door to a pool has physical barriers keeping them from wandering into danger. By adding a requirement for fencing between pool owners’ homes and their own pools will be seen by

some as intrusive, but the payoff will come in lives no longer lost to drownings. Too often young children end up in pools, dead or close to it. A fence seems a small price to pay. Sometimes it’s a child who lives in the home who ends up out of sight for mere moments, only to be found floating in the backyard pool. In Ottawa we’ve seen children drowned while visiting the home of family or family

friends. Seeing a distraught father taking an axe to a pool after losing a young son can quickly convince a bystander that tighter rules can save lives. The intrusive aspect of four-sided pool enclosures should be measured against other safety legislation we have come to accept. Many years ago, when the province required people in cars to wear seat belts, some may

have grumbled about their freedom, but we adapted. Motoring deaths have dropped because we follow the law. The new “four-sided” requirement will not force existing pool owners to upgrade, but all of them should consider doing so. Existing pools may be grandfathered, but if you want to be a grandparent one day, a complete enclosure could be the answer.


Laissez-faire parenting BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse


f we could all be a little more like parents in France, our infants would sleep through the night, our children would eat their vegetables, and we’d all be having great post-natal sex with our spouses. These are just some of the conclusions found in a new book, Bringing up Bebe: One American mother discovers the wisdom of French parenting. Author Pamela Druckerman is an American journalist living in Paris with her husband and three young children. After spending years observing French parenting culture through an expatriate lens, she has documented some of their laissez-faire parenting customs from which, she says, we can all benefit. Druckerman contrasts the child-centric American style of parenting with the more relaxed philosophy of the French, who seem to fit children into their lives, rather than the other way around. She says a lot of it starts in-utero. While North Americans preach abstinence of alcohol, caffeine, and warn against “the most minute risks, like getting a manicure,” Druckerman says the French are much less obsessive over whether a little bit of unpasteurized cheese will hurt the baby. “The attitude isn’t that every bite of food you take is going to determine whether your child is accepted to Harvard Law School,” Druckerman told Macleans magazine. There are some great takeaways from the book. I am a huge advocate of what Druckerman describes as “the Pause,” a sleep-training method used by French parents on babies as young as a few weeks old. Rather than jumping at baby’s every cry in the night, French parents wait a minute or two to see if the baby will connect its two-hour sleep cycles together

on its own. Druckerman says many French babies sleep through the night by two or threemonths-old. (In hindsight, sheer exhaustion – the inability to respond to baby immediately in the wee hours of the morning – helped me to employ this method inadvertently on my own two children, who slept through the night at three and four-months-old, to the envy of my neighbours and friends). Druckerman also notes children in France are expected to eat the same food as adults, and they are not allowed to snack between meals. Druckerman points out that, as a result, French kids are more likely than their American counterparts to eat their vegetables at meal times because they’re actually hungry. Admittedly, I already practice some of the apparent French methods Druckerman describes. I could be accused, however, of being overly interventionist (and typically North American) when it comes to my children’s intellectual stimulation. While French parents are more likely to sit on the periphery of a playground, for example, and socialize with other adults as their children play on slides and climbers, Druckerman says moms like me tend to be “wheeing” and “ awing” at every move my child makes. I’ve become a bit more relaxed as my children get older, but it’s worth noting that, as a result of their less interventionist behaviour, French parents are able to expect less interruptive behaviour from their children. And finally, there’s the sex. It may be a bit controversial here, but French women feel no obligation to breastfeed beyond a few months, unless they enjoy it, says Druckerman. Many partake in state-sponsored post-natal classes, which help women tighten up pelvic muscles after childbirth. It’s unusual for women to stay home fulltime with children. Druckerman says three months seems to be the “magic number,” by which point most women are expected to get their pre-natal identities back, including returning to work and fitting into their skinny jeans. That, alone, is enough to make me want to shout, “vive le France.”

Commemorative-naming change pulled at city hall River ward’s McRae calls for review Laura Mueller

EMC news – A last-minute realization that a proposed change to the city’s commemorative naming process would remove councillors from the process led Coun. Maria McRae to ask a city committee to review the idea. The River Ward councillor made the request just before city council approved its new five-year arts plan, which included a proposal to create an independent board to approve naming things such as roads and parks after people. Heritage advocates have been calling for a strengthened approach to commemorative naming after highly politicized attempts to name Ottawa landmarks in the last year – first, the renaming of parts of Richmond and Robertson roads in Bells Corners to Lloyd Francis Boulevard, and then the suggestion to name the new city archive after former mayor Charlotte Whitton. Both proposals were jettisoned following public out-

COUN. MARIA MCRAE cry. The arts plan proposed a new commemorative naming policy that would be overseen by an arms-length board and included more citizen engagement in the process. But it wasn’t until just before council was set to approve the arts plan that McRae received clarification that the proposed board would include citizens and heritage authorities – but not members of council. “Members of council, who are the only people accountable to their residents, deserve to be a part of this,” McRae said. “We should never be ex-

cluding elected officials from having a position on something that matters to our residents, because we are accountable to them and they are the ones that elect us.” McRae’s amendment asks the city’s governance renewal committee to look at that portion of the proposed policy. That will be a quicker way to put the new commemorative naming plan into action if it’s needed, McRae said. “I am a firm believer that if the system’s not broken, we don’t need to fix it,” she said. “And if we would stick to our commemorative process and not go around it, it would work.” College Coun. Rick Chiarelli, who came under fire for his Lloyd Francis Boulevard proposal, mistakenly registered his dissent on McRae’s idea, but he said in an interview that he supports her idea. “Just because something becomes controversial, isn’t a good enough reason for council to hand off the decision making to someone else,” Chiarelli said.

Woman keeps in motion for Arthritis Society Jennifer McIntosh

EMC news - Charlene Knight is a typical Type A, take-charge personality, so when rheumatoid arthritis robbed her of her movement and freedom, it was that much harder to bear. Knight, a resident of the Barrhaven neighbourhood of Heart’s Desire, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis shortly after the birth of her daughter in 2002. “At first I thought it was postpartum,” she said, adding that soon things got so bad she had trouble brushing her own hair. After the diagnosis, Knight learned she would have to take some very powerful medications that had some serious side effects – one of which was that she wouldn’t be able to have any more children. “I refused the meds because I wanted to have another child,” she said. She received help in from the Arthritis Society, which provided a case worker that visited her home. Once she became pregnant, she said the disease seemed to go into remission. “I was feeling OK, but then after my son was born it started to get worse again,” she said, adding that she would sometimes have hold onto the walls and limp then sit her way down the stairs at night when she got up to feed her son. Then Knight started a regimen of medications that allowed her to go to the gym and do yoga. But a couple of years ago they stopped working.

The disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder that principally attacks flexible joints. The cause, while unknown, is often linked to autoimmune problems – meaning the body’s immune system actually attacks the fluids in the joints. A new form of medicine – meant as a last resort – called Enbrel, gave Knight a new lease on life a couple of years ago. It works by blocking the immune system. CHINA TRIP

That allowed her to participate in the Joints in Motion Marathon that led to her walking the Great Wall of China in May 2010. She managed to raise $14,000 in donations to the Arthritis Society for the China trip thanks to friends, her children’s daycare and colleagues. Now she will be heading to Lausanne, Switzerland in October to raise money all over again. She has already started fundraising and originally set a goal of $10,000 but upped that to $15,000 after she managed to reach nearly $4,000 in the first few weeks. “I think I can do it,” she said. Knight will be walking the half marathon and will begin her training soon. She can’t run because of the impact on her joints so it will take her roughly five hours to cover the course, she said. “I don’t like to be told what to do,” Knight said. “When I was diagnosed it was like my body telling me what I could do. So now I will walk as long as I feel well enough to do it.” To read more about Knight’s next journey, visit

Queensway construction run 24 hours a day Project to widen 417 will close Lees ramp for three years, eastbound St. Laurent ramp permanently Laura Mueller

The massive project to add a lane in each direction on Highway 417 up to Regional Road 174 will get underway this summer said David Lindensmith, the senior project engineer with the ministry.

‘When I looked at this project I thought, ‘Wait a minute, this is going to be major dollars. Let’s just line this up from the start.’ SHEILA PERRY

But that left the city’s transportation committee chairwoman wondering where the

displaced traffic would go. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson was at the Feb. 13 meeting, but said she hadn’t seen the final plans or how they might affect traffic on city roads. “The two parts have to fit together,” she said. “That has an impact on changing the (traffic) flow. If they are closing a ramp I want to know how the traffic is going to flow onto our roads.” Lindensmith said drivers wouldn’t all choose the same new route, but he envisions much of the traffic that would have used the St. Laurent ramps to choose Innes Road instead. Drivers (including trans-

EMC news – Nearby residents and businesses might have to put up with 24-hour construction when the Queensway is widened between Nicholas Street at the split over the next three years. The massive project to add a lane in each direction on Highway 417 up to Regional Road 174 will get underway this summer, and Phil Pawlink, the program planner for the project from the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, confirmed the ministry will request an exemption to the city’s noise bylaw. The public got a peek at the plans for the highway expansion on Feb. 13, and there was a lot of information to take in. The three-year closure of the Lees Avenue eastbound on-ramp came as an unpleasant to some Old Ottawa East residents in attendance. Don Fugler said the closure would dump traffic onto Riverside Drive for those three years. There will be other, shorter-term closures of bridges, nearby streets and on-ramps as pieces of the highway are replaced, including Lees Avenue for several weeks. One of the most significant impacts on local traffic in the future will be changes to onand off-ramps at St. Laurent Boulevard. A lightly used eastbound on-ramp on St. Laurent will be closed to the public and converted for transit use only. Access from the 174 westbound through the split will be cut off from the St. Laurent exit to prevent the dangerous movement of too many vehicles trying to merge right over several lanes in an attempt to make a quick exit after the highway joins the Queensway. It’s similar to what the ministry did with the Moodie Drive exit where highways 416 and 417 meet. “There were some concerns regarding safe lane changing and the conclusion was that it was appropriate to close it,”

exiting westbound on St. Laurent during a peak hour was trying to merge over from the 174, Lindensmith said. That’s about 130 vehicles (including a dozen trucks) during a peak hour that will have to find a new route on city streets. “There will be more trucks on certain parts of our roads,” Wilkinson said. “We’re going to have to take a look at it.” Sheila Perry, president of the Overbrook Community Association, said her major concern with the project is coordinating construction with the planned replacement of a large-diameter water main running through Overbrook to Orleans. “When I looked at this project I thought, ‘Wait a minute, this is going to be major dollars. Let’s just line this up from the start,’ ” Perry said. Natalie Séguin, who lives near Tremblay Road, said she wasn’t sure she could handle another three years of construction almost at her doorstep. The road in front of her house was torn up last summer, the highway nearby will be under construction for three years, and after that, construction on the city’s light-rail transit line will begin. “It’s a lot of construction,” she said.

Committee endorses payments for development uplift Laura Mueller

EMC news – Making developers pay for community perks when they propose big buildings isn’t going to convince neighbours that developers are really community builders, according to one builder. The city’s planning committee agreed to terms that allow it to collect money from builders who want to build large projects (over 7,000 square metres) that are at least 25 per cent taller than the current rules allow. The plan is to put that money, estimated at around 15 to 50 per cent of the property value, towards community projects like parks, affordable housing, streetscaping, libraries or other public amenities. While the city has a policy of intensification to bring denser development to the urban core, the city has struggled to keep up with those types of facilities that add to the quality of life, said John Moser, the city’s general manager of planning and growth management. “(This will) allow us to bring growth in line with the fabric of the existing neighbourhood,” he said. A policy to seek the payments under Section 37 of the Planning Act is not a giveaway of additional height for towers, Moser said, nor is it a moneymaker for the city. “This is a culture change

and a new way of doing business for significant buildings,” he said. The city hopes that getting a little something back will make around 10 of the biggest construction projects each year more palatable to residents who already live in the area – but only if they represent good planning, city staff said before the planning committee endorsed the idea on Feb. 14. That could reduce trips to the Ontario Municipal Board, which hears appeals of city planning decisions. It’s a protocol that is often used in Toronto and other municipalities, but not yet in Ottawa. But the vice president of one of the city’s largest condo builders, Claridge Homes, said no policy or amount of contribution to the community will convince residents that builders aren’t the bogeyman. Developers already contribute to charities and sponsor community projects such as public facilities, said Neil Malhotra. “But we don’t get a lot of credit for it,” he added. In the end, the new “tax” will be passed down to homebuyers, driving up the cost of real estate. However, he said the new policy will help shift the way developers approach building in urban areas. When they plan to develop hundreds of acres of empty land in the suburbs, developers consider where the

Doug Casey, president of Charlesfort Developments, told the city’s planning committee on Feb. 14 that community benefit payments in exchange for taller buildings are a good idea and could set the trend of the city working in partnership more frequently with private industry. In the background are city planners Alain Miguelez and Stan Wilder. schools, libraries and other amenities will go. But urban development is more piecemeal, Malhotra said. “We have to look at how to make life better in the downtown,” Malhotra said. “We don’t have complete neighbourhoods in Ottawa.” While the Federation of Citizens’ Associations of Ottawa had reservations about

how the policy would be implemented, the FCA is strongly in support of the policy, said Hintonburg’s Jay Baltz, chairman of the FCA’s planning and zoning committee. “We see a lot of examples of uplift all across the city, and until recently, no community benefits,” said another Hintonburg resident, Linda Hoad.

She said it’s time for communities that are experiencing the “joys and sorrows” of intensification to share some of the benefits. Planning committee chairman Peter Hume, the councillor for Alta Vista Ward, downplayed the significance of the policy, saying it won’t affect 95 per cent of developments in the city.

“It will be the exceptions, not the rule,” he said. “It’s not going to be a culture shift.” The largest benefits will be realized in the “inner urban” zone. Ottawa will be the first Ontario municipality to use a complex formula to calculate the uplift valuem, something that will satisfy developers by making payments more predictable.

NCC could follow Ottawa’s lead on smoking restrictions Laura Mueller

Novel sparks cross-country debates on work of NGOs Michelle Nash

EMC news – Authors from a humanitarian non-governmental organization visited the University of Ottawa as part of a cross-country tour arranged in part to search for the answer to the central question of their new book. Created by Médecins sans Frontières (Doctors Without Boarders), the book Humanitarian Negotiations Revealed asks why the space for humanitarian organizations use to occupy in developing or war-torn countries is becoming smaller and smaller. It explores the viewpoints surrounding the importance of finding compromise when it comes to working with countries in need. Co-editor of the book Claire Magone was part of the tour that made a stop at the University of Ottawa on Feb. 15 and said the purpose of the tour

was to spark a debate about the issues discussed in the book. “Before there was a time NGO’s were operating more freely, but now we are facing tougher times,” Magone said. “And even though there has never been a ‘golden age’ where it was easy to do humanitarian acts, now we are trying to find a shared interest between saving lives and ensuring the interests of the politicians are met. “The difficulties have become bigger and bigger and this book is trying to look for the explanation of why that is.” The book follows the organizations trials and tribulations since 2003. Magone said the book is a jumping-off point for the kind of discussions the authors hope the tour will generate. “We are not expecting a winning formula, but a discussion of the facts, issues and concerns,” Magone said.

One of the ideas discussed in the book focuses on making compromises with what can often be perceived as an “enemy” faction working in a given country. Magone said this suggestion can be perceived both in a good way and in a bad way. “For some people, it is hard to see the enemy in a war as a partner for aid, but for us, we need to make friends with the enemies to be able to offer aid,” Magone said. As a basic principle for an organization to be successful saving lives, Magone said, such compromises are what groups like Médecins sans Frontières must strive to find. “We are looking at finding balance between our efforts and the politics of a country,” she said. The book is available to read online in both French or English at www.msf-crash. org/livres/en/humanitarian-negotiations-revealed.

The National Capital Commission is closely watching the city’s progress in its attempts to restrict smoking in outdoor areas such as city-owned parks and beaches. While the NCC has no plan to pursue a similar policy for its own lands at this point, spokesperson Jean Wolff said the federal agency has a track record of aligning policies with the city. “We have a long and positive track record of partnership in terms of being supportive of each other’s objectives and regulations,” Wolff said. The NCC supports the public health objectives of the city’s policy, but it’s premature to talk about the commission adopting something similar, Wolff said. The expansion of the city’s non-smoking bylaw passed another hurdle on Feb. 15 when the city’s community and protective services committee endorsed the new rules. The bylaw would go into effect April 1 and would restrict smoking on outdoor restaurant and bar patios, as well as all city-owned properties, including parks, beaches and other city facilities, excluding those run by separate boards. Last week, some business groups expressed concerns that festivals that take place on NCC land would have a competitive advantage because people would be allowed to

smoke. One of the largest festivals in the city, Bluesfest, takes place on federal land at LeBreton Flats and the Canadian War Museum, for instance.

“We have a long and positive track record of partnership in terms of being supportive of each other’s objectives and regulations.” JEAN WOLFF

The community and protective services committee added a few minor changes to the bylaw before endorsing it on Feb. 15. College Coun. Rick Chiarelli put forward a motion asking Ottaw public health staff to consult business owners and business groups about changes that could effect their bottom lines. Somerset Coun. Diane Holmes, head of the health board, asked city staff to report back on ways to regulate the use of water pipes or “hookahs” on city property. She also tabled a motion to ask the mayor to write to the province asking for stricter rules surrounding contraband tobacco enforcement. City council was set to give final approval to the smoking bylaw expansion on Feb. 22.

South Keys association building new connections

Pool enclosure rules set to become stricter

Eddie Rwema

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It could cost more to build a fence around your pool in the near future. Until now, Ottawa has only required a three-sided enclosure for pools, but the city is considering changes that call for full four-sided enclosures. While the previous rules were meant to protect kids from getting into the yard and slipping into the pool, the proposed change would also look to protect children inside the home from getting into the pool unsupervised. The proposal is still in the works and the city is asking for feedback on that change and other alterations to pool-enclosure requirements before March 9. But if the change goes through, people would have to build a foursided enclosure around new pools, or add another fence to an existing enclosure if they are replacing it, said Arlene Gregoire, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director and chief building official. That change will also mean residents will need to re-apply for a pool-enclosure permit when they are replacing the fence, to ensure they know about the new guidelines and comply with them, Gregoire said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted it to be more comprehensive,â&#x20AC;? she said. While city staff has consulted with industry stakeholders and some community groups, Gregoire said she is really hoping to get a pulse on how residents are reacting to the proposed guidelines through this public consultation. There was also a loophole in the bylaw when it came to temporary enclosures during the construction of a pool, Gregoire said. The new rules would fix that. The pool-enclosure bylaw hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been reviewed since amal-

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The South KeysGreenboro Community association is embarking on an ambitious recruitment strategy to engage more volunteers from the community to help build successful programs in the neighbourhood. Speaking at the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting on Feb. 15, group president Marnie McKinstry expressed need to improve the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relevance to the community by building stronger programs and reaching out to many residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want more faces and voices from the neighbourhood,â&#x20AC;? said McKinstry. The AGM is held every year to elect a volunteer board of directors and inform the community at large of the associationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recent activities and what they plan for the following year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year the association did a great job building its name and getting out to the community and letting the community know what sort of services and programs we provide and the kind of events we host,â&#x20AC;? she said. Over the past year, the community was able to work with the councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office on a number of issues like traffic, safety, planning and zoning. McKinstry highlighted some of the key accomplishments, specifically the famous kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer season and kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drop-in program for daycare providers and stay-at-home parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we have been able to accomplish is increasing awareness of the association and getting people interested in what we are doing,â&#x20AC;? said McKinstry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that we have a couple of new faces at every meeting is a great sign.â&#x20AC;? She said 2011 was a great year and they hoped to build on that delivering value to their residents.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to build our programs even further,â&#x20AC;? said McKinstry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For 2012 we will be looking to making sure that we stay relevant within the community and meeting the needs of community members.â&#x20AC;? McKinstry, who took over as president last year, said she was encouraged by the support she gets from the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have enjoyed and I appreciate the encouragement I have received from everyone in doing this work,â&#x20AC;?

she said. She added she wants the community to join her in continuing to deliver programs in a most cost effective way possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Building the awareness is not a one year thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take many years. So we are looking forward to another year getting out into the community and getting people involved.â&#x20AC;?

gamation in 2001 and the changes are overdue, Gregoire said. City staff compared Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidelines to about a dozen other Ontario municipalities and to other jurisdictions around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to ensure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to date and still effective,â&#x20AC;? Gregoire said. Council directed city staff to look into updating the policies three years ago, but there were no resources available at the time. Last year, with the release of an Ontario Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report on drowning deaths last summer, there was a new push for updated guidelines for Ottawa. The city usually issues between 850 and 900 pool enclosure permits each year, on average, and the fee is around $100. Compliance with pool-enclosure rules is monitored based on complaints through 311 and bylaw services.

ACORN launches free tax clinic Goal is poverty reduction Michelle Nash

EMC news – A free tax return clinic will be available once again this year for low and moderate income individuals and new immigrants in Ottawa starting on Feb. 28. Getting ready for the influx of calls to the office of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) on Montreal Road, members announced their free tax clinics on Feb. 16. ACORN Ottawa members and fellow tax clinic users, Kathleen Fortin and Dave Thomasson are grateful for the clinics and want everyone who needs aid with their tax returns to know ACORN is there to help. SAVES MONEY

“This is all about poverty reduction and helping put more money into people’s pockets,” Fortin said. “It is an excellent service that saves people a lot of money.” Volunteer tax program co-ordinator, Keisha Lim, encourages people to call a book an appointment. “It could take up to three days for us to call you back, but we will,” Lim said. Completely volunteerdriven, the free clinics started

in 2009 and ACORN reports they have helped more than 1,800 people file their tax returns in the past four years. The clinics will help those in need with both their 2011 tax returns as well as any back taxes that may be pending. “Bring in every receipt you may have, transit, tuition, anything. The more you bring in, the more we can help,” Thomasson said. Once the clinics begin, there will be 23 volunteers available to help. Lim said all the volunteers’ receive training by the Canadian Revenue Agency and ACORN uses agency software. This year, ACORN has also launched a separate program directed specifically at new Canadians and low income immigrants. “The new program is all about helping them become aware of savings or tax credits they may not know about,” Lim said. Both programs will be running from ACORN’s offices in Vanier. There are no drop-in appointments, only phone requests. The clinics will run until May 19 and Lim said ACORN will take calls until the last person has been helped. For more information or to book an appointment, please call 613-746-5999.

The Healthy Eating for Life Chinese Banquet was a success last year, and now community partners are gearing up to host the second annual banquet on March 1.

Annual banquet promotes healthy eating Kristy Wallace

EMC news – What started as a project to collect 60 healthy recipes for the Chinese community in 2009 has since turned into an annual banquet hosted by community partners to bring awareness to healthy eating habits. The second annual Healthy Eating for Life 2012 Chinese Banquet will take place on March 1 at Yangtze Restaurant in Ottawa’s Chinatown. The banquet is being hosted by the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Diabetes Association and the Ottawa Chinese Community Service Centre. “What we found what was really unique and different were non-profit organizations working together, getting out the same message and really focusing it around something fun and innovative, including diversity,” said Micheline Turnau, community mission specialist with the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “In Canada, in Ontario and in Ottawa, it’s a very diverse community and we need to be thinking about different messaging to reach different communities.” Turnau said the banquet came out of Healthy Eating for Life, an Ontario-based initiative launched in 2009 and provides health information

and 60 recipes for the Chinese community. According to the Health and Stroke Foundation, Canadian women who are of Chinese origin have the highest stroke death rates. Also, the foundation says there is “relatively poor awareness of warning symptoms” of stroke among the Canadian Chinese community. DIET CHANGES

“It’s always hard to attribute it to one cause,” said Turnau, adding that factors such as stress of immigrating to a new country and change in diet when they arrive could be a couple factors. Karina Kwong, a master of public health student who is doing her placement with Turnau, added that nowadays there is more awareness of how to avoid heart disease and stroke. “I think there’s a tremendous awareness, especially with the Heart and Stroke Foundation and all these promotional materials,” she said. “It has increased education and awareness.” Kwong also described what will be served at this year’s banquet as part of the ninecourse meal including hot and sour soup, ma po tofu and kung pow chicken with vegetables.

Turnau said the event sold out last year, and from feedback people said they didn’t know the difference in the way the food was cooked. “(The restaurant) is basically following Canada’s food guide, reducing sodium and including more fruits and vegetables,” she said. In addition to the ninecourse meal, banquet participants will also receive a healthy recipe book that they can take home. Senator Vivienne Poy, who was a keynote speaker at the first annual event, will be there again this year. “She was really quick to

come on board again, and she’s really supportive of the event,” said Turnau. The Healthy Eating for Life 2012 Chinese Banquet will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Yangtze Restaurant, 700 Somerset St. West. Tickets are $38 per person and net proceeds will go to the three organizations. For more information or to purchase your ticket, call the Heart and Stroke Foudnation at 613-727-5060 ext. 235, the Canadian Diabetes Association at 613-688-5931, or the Ottawa Chinese Community Service Centre at 613-2354875 ext. 115.

EMC news – University students are taking it all off in an effort to raise funds to fight childhood cancers. The University of Ottawa’s faculty of medicine is hosting its ninth annual Shave for a Cure event on Friday, Feb. 24, during the Ottawa 67’s game at Lansdowne Park. Students are challenging the public to brave the cold weather and shave their heads – or lop off 10 inches of hair – for Smiling Over Sickness, a volunteer-based organization run by the medical students at the university. The organization has partnered with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fundraise for Childhood Cancer Canada. “Participants, or shavees, are a large part of our fundraising every year,” said Pamela Lai, a medical student and the event’s co-organizer in a press release. The students are hoping to raise $60,000 for pediatric cancer research. “Every bit counts tremendously towards our goal of $60,000,” said Lai. “The Ottawa community has always been great to us.” Steven Gravelle, from Orleans, is a first year medical student who watched University of Ottawa medical students shaving their heads throughout his undergraduate years. “I said, ‘If I get into medical school this is the number one project I want to jump on,’” he said. “It’s the simplest act that I can do to raise awareness for kids that have cancer.” Gravelle’s been skipping haircuts to help raise funds, with a personal fundraising goal of $500. He said it’s easy to shave his head thinking of the kids that lose their hair due to chemotherapy treatments – and will be proud to show off his bald head around campus after the event. “Cancer affects my family, it affects my friends,” he said. “It affects everyone.” He’s interested in working with children in the future, but Gravelle is still in the first year of his program. Other ways to get involved

in the fundraising effort include: • Purchasing a ticket for the Ottawa 67’s game for Feb. 24 through the Shave for a Cure website, www.shaveforacure. ca. • Bidding in the silent auction on site at Lansdowne on Feb. 24. • Donating online to the event. “We want Shave for a Cure to keep growing,” said Brad-


vous system, the lymphatic system, kidneys, bones and muscles. • Childhood cancers have close to a 75 per cent cure rate. For more information, visit

Ottawa contractor sentenced to 37 days in jail Second jail term for company owner EMC news – An Ottawa area contractor has been sentenced to 37 days in jail and payment of $14,000 in restitution for violating Ontario’s

Consumer Protection Act. In April 2009, a homeowner in the Ottawa area hired PSC New Home Construction Inc. to build a garage. The homeowner paid a deposit of $5,000 to the company owner, but he failed to perform any of the work as agreed. The contractor then approached the homeowner’s elderly father for more money. He insisted on driving the father to his bank to withdraw

and pay him an additional $4,000 towards the construction of the garage. Despite the total amount of $14,000 paid to the company owner, no work was done, no materials supplied, nor were any monies returned to the homeowner. CHARGES

The court found PSC New Home Construction Inc. and

its owner guilty of: • Engaging in unfair practices by making false, misleading or deceptive consumer representations. • Failing to provide consumers with a direct agreement containing information required under the Consumer Protection Act. • Failing to refund monies paid within 15 days of the consumer having given notice of cancellation of the contract

and asking for a refund. The jail sentence and restitution handed down this month are in addition to 71 days in jail, $90,000 in fines, $37,946 in restitution and 75 hours of community service imposed on the owner by Provincial Offences Court in August 2011 for failing to provide agreed-upon services to several homeowners in the Ottawa area. Sentenced in Provincial Of-

fences Court was Philip Slobodzian. Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act provides for fines of up to $250,000 for corporations and $50,000 for individuals convicted of offences. It also provides for jail terms of up to two years less a day for each offence. The act also empowers the court to order offenders to pay compensation or make restitution to victims.

Ottawa airport named best in North America Eddie Rwema

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ottawa International Airport topped the list of airports in North America and placed second in airports of its size worldwide serving between two million and ďŹ ve million passengers. The airport service quality survey pegged Ottawa in the ďŹ rst spot for the region, based on passenger satisfaction. Last year the, airport was named ďŹ rst in the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First in North America is even more special, because the airports included in the survey are the airports that our customers travel to most often; the ones we are most familiar with,â&#x20AC;? said airport authority president and CEO

The survey is a satisfaction benchmark conducted at more than half the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top 100 airports, with more than 250,000 passengers interviewed every year. The airport service quality passenger survey is often used to improve the airport experience for travellers. Since joining the program in 2004, Ottawa has ranked in the top three in each of the categories in which it qualiďŹ es.

Mary Cook’s Memories herself the page-turner. She accused me of crimping the corners and goodness knows the catalogue had to serve us until the next one came out months later. My sister and I had this game we played with the Eaton’s catalogue. We could each pick one thing off each page and we took turns picking first, allowing ourselves only 10 pages a night. If Audrey hadn’t put a limit on our pastime, we would have gone through the entire catalogue in less than a week. And so we started at the women’s fashions and even though there wasn’t a hope in Hades of our ever having one item we picked, we scanned each page as if our choice was a matter of life and death. It was amazing how we could spend the best part of an entire evening just going through those 10 pages and making our choices. Then Audrey would take the 12-inch ruler and tuck it into the page we had left off, close the catalogue and either pass it over to Mother or gently put it up on top of the ice box until the next night. The brothers were never too interested in the new catalogue. Neither was Father. He said anything he needed he could get either at Briscoe’s General Store or at Thacker’s garage. As soon as we were positive the old catalogue held no more interest, it served another purpose. Father would drive a spike

One served the purpose of giving my sister Audrey and me hours of evening enjoyment, when we could pick wonderful fashions, the latest style shoes and beautiful materials, realizing of course, none of it would ever find its way out to our farm in Northcote. The joy was in the choosing and the old catalogue, long before recycling was ever thought of, served us well in the outhouse. My sister Audrey often said she thought she should write a letter to Mr. Eaton and tell him how much pleasure we got from his catalogue, and the good use the past issues were put to. Mother voted against the idea, saying she doubted Mr. Eaton could ever conjure up a mental picture of his catalogue hanging from a spike in some back house out in Renfrew County.

through the upper left corner making a hole large enough to work through a good length of binder twine. It was then taken out to the outhouse and hung on a nail just inside the door, and used as toilet paper. The old catalogue, by then with most of its pages ripped out, would be stuffed into the Findlay Oval with the morning kindling. And so we always had two Eaton’s catalogues in use on the farm.

Theresa Kavanagh, Bay ward’s public school board trustee, wants students to receive rewards for living an active lifestyle.

EMC lifestyle – “Any day now,” Audrey said, peeking into the mailbox at the end of our long winding lane. For days, walking home from the Northcote School with anticipation, Audrey checked the mailbox. It was yet to appear. “What’s taking it so long?” I wanted to know. “Don’t be so impatient. It will be here in its own good time.” What we were waiting for was the new issue of Eaton’s catalogue. As regular as clockwork as the seasons changed, we could count on it arriving by mail. The last copy was thickened from constant page turning and it would await its fate as soon as the newest edition came into the house. Finally it was there, crammed into the tin mailbox. Audrey and I ran all the way home through hardened snow, through the bush, never stopping until we reached the kitchen door. My sister wouldn’t let me carry it, not even for a few feet in case I dropped it and got it wet. Mother was as excited as we were and even though she was preparing supper, she stopped long enough to take a look at the cover and ordered us to wash our hands before we got down to the real job of looking it over. “Just put it over there on the top of the ice box until you have readied up the kitchen,” she said. Supper was a hurried meal that night. After all, great things loomed ahead! Audrey and I had the kitchen readied up in jig time with the oil cloth-covered table wiped and then dried with a clean flour bag tea towel to make sure it was perfectly dry. After all, it would never do to get a spot on the catalogue when it was this new!

Ontario juniors place fourth in tournament Emma Jackson

EMC sports – Ontario’s junior women’s curling team finished a disappointing fourth place at the Canadian Junior Curling Championships this February, but Manotick skip Jamie Sinclair said it’s just the beginning for her team. “It was disappointing obviously, but it was out first year together as a team, and it was our first time going to nationals,” she said, noting that the girls spent their first few games getting used to Lynn Kreviazuk, who replaced a regular team mate who was injured in the provincials. “Our first game together was the first game of the nationals. So it was challenging to get in the swing of things.” Sinclair said the rink in Napanee where the junior tournament was held from Feb. 4 to12 was a change from what she was used to in Ottawa. “The arena was much different, it curls so much more. It was pretty challenging,” she said. The 19-year-old Manotick resident


toba 7 to 5, and third place British Columbia 6 to 4. Ontario also beat Newfoundland, Northwest Territories, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the Yukon throughout the week. Alberta beat British Columbia in the semi-finals 8 to 7, and then took on Manitoba to win the final 12 to 6. Sinclair and Kreviazuk both joined the Carleton curling team at the Ontario Universities Association curling tournament in Guelph beginning Feb. 16. Kreviazuk played skip and Sinclair played third.

Manotick skip says it can only get better

said they went into the tournament “hoping for the best outcome possible.” As the week went on, however, the team went back and forth in the standings, splitting evenly between wins and losses. “We were hoping to make a tiebreaker as the week went through, but we were one win short,” Sinclair said. The team finished the round robin tournament on Friday, Feb. 10 in fourth place behind British Columbia. But Sinclair was optimistic, particularly because her team beat two of the three teams that made it to the play-offs during the round robin.

Senators goaltender unmasks his personal style By Rob Brodie Goaltenders, it’s often been said, are a different breed. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the piece of gear that always seems to draw the most attention. The mask every netminder wears isn’t just a necessary piece of facial protection. Rather, it offers up a canvas for personal expression, one that can take many unique forms. “It’s one of the few positions where you can express yourself and who you are,” said Senators goaltender Craig Anderson, who displays a team and personal touch with his masks. “It try to keep it 50-50. One side is team oriented, the other side is what sets me apart.” Anderson turned heads this season by breaking out a heritagethemed mask that pays tribute to Hockey Hall of Fame goaltender Clint Benedict, who backstopped the original Senators to three Stanley Cups in the 1920s. He uses it on nights when the team wears its ‘O’ styled heritage jerseys. But the 30-year-old native of Park Ridge, Ill., doesn’t just let his masks do the talking. His standout play since Christmas has elevated the Senators into the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff chase. Score sat down with Anderson to unmask a few truths, so to speak, about the Senators stopper: Q: Have you ever gone through four masks in a season before? A: One was from last year, so I started out with that. Then I got a new but it broke and we replaced it, and I also have the heritage one. So we have an extra one

character he wants on it. I like to give the artist an open slate. Q: What do you do with your old masks? A: I have almost all of them except the ones that were broken

— those go back to the mask builder. The rest of them, I’ve got in storage somewhere, between my house and my parents’ house and whatnot. Eventually, I’ll have a display case with them all.

This one is feeling really good, the fit and finish is really good and I feel really good in it. Q: Are there any common themes you like to keep on all your masks? A: The common theme right now is the Corvette. It’s America’s sports car and it’s my way of paying tribute to what I like doing. I like playing with cars in the off-season and being an American. The other side has something to do with the team, like the Sens logo. I also have the Corvette Racing logo on the back, with my number and name (Andy). Other than that, it’s pretty much free rein for the

painter. Q: How did you and your mask designer (Detroit-based John Pepe of Pepe Custom Paint) first meet? A: The guy that builds my masks (Bob Dillon of Dillon’s Custom Goalie Mask) is out of Virginia — I met him when I played in the minors with Norfolk. He gave me a custom fit and I’ve been using his masks ever since. The customer service has been top notch and the mask feels really good when I get hit in the head. There’s no ringing, there’s no repercussions from getting hit in the head like I had with my old masks. The painter is his guy that he’s used for a long

time. Q: How do you and your painter collaborate on the final product? A: It’s more or less just one phone conversation. After that, it’s just little messages here and there by e-mail. My theme hasn’t really changed over the last few years, so it’s pretty much free rein for him to put whatever kind of

BOSTON BRUINS Saturday, Feb. 25, 7 p.m., CBC Though their play has been somewhat average of late, the Stanley Cup-champion Bruins are still a formidable force and a top candidate to repeat in June. This is a team loaded with offensive threats, led by the versatile Patrice Bergeron and the bruising Milan Lucic. Young phenom Tyler Seguin is having a breakout season in his second full season in Boston, while Chris Kelly is putting up career numbers and Brad Marchand


remains a perpetual pest who’s also a major impact player. Zdeno Chara is the big man in many ways on the Boston blue line. In Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask, the Bruins boast arguably the best goaltending tandem in the NHL.

Sunday, Feb. 26, 5 p.m., Sportsnet East The Islanders are beginning to make more noise in the Eastern Conference, pushing toward the fringe of playoff contention in recent weeks. It’s no surprise the team’s rise is accompanied by that of John Tavares toward elite player status in the NHL. The former No. 1 overall pick heads up a dangerous attack that also gets top goal production from the likes of Matt Moulson,P.A. Parenteau,

Nepean Sportsplex to co-host 2013 women’s worlds Brier Dodge

EMC sports – The Nepean Sportsplex will be a host rink for the 2013 women’s world hockey championships, in April 2013. “It’s a fantastic opportunity to have such a prestigious event,” said Mark Magee, portfolio manager at the Nepean Sportsplex and part of the host committee. The A pool of the top four teams, to be determined at this year’s world championship in Vermont, will play at Scotiabank Place. The B pool of the fifth to eighth place teams will be playing on the Steve Yzerman rink at the Nepean Sportsplex. This year, the B pool in Vermont includes Sweden, Switzerland, Slovakia and Germany. “In terms of location, it has a great proximity,” said 2013 IIHF world championship general manager Valerie Hughes. “And a great tie in with the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association, who were a co-bidder with this event.” Ottawa is hosting the world championship at the same time

as the women’s hockey provincial championship will be played across city rinks. Magee said he’s excited for the Sportsplex to host top female players, because they act as role models and help encourage more younger girls to get involved in hockey. After the Hockey Canada site tours, the Sportsplex staff were ecstatic to hear that one of the three ice surfaces had been chosen to host the international teams. “We thought it was a shot in the dark,” Magee said, adding the facility marks its 40th anniversary in June 2013, and there’s no better way to celebrate than hosting the championship. Over the past few years, the Sportsplex has gone through lots of renovations to update the facility. Ticket packages have already gone on sale for the event, and individual tickets will be released closer to the event. Current ticket packages include all games at Scotiabank Place, where Team Canada will more than likely be playing all of their games. The prices range from $184 to $289.

Pet Adoptions BILLY


February is national prevent a litter month. Are your pets spayed or neutered? A large portion of animals brought to the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS) are litters of kittens and puppies from unplanned pregnancies. Every year thousands of animals across Canada must be euthanized because they are unhealthy and unwanted, born into poor conditions and not cared for properly. As an open admission shelter, the OHS takes in all animals, regardless of their health or behaviour. But it comes at a cost – daily care, vaccinations, routine deworming and defleaing, and spay and neuter procedures for

ID#A140281 Digger is a neutered male, four-year-old white and brown Mini lop-eared rabbit. He was surrendered to the shelter by his owner on February 2. Rabbits are generally good-natured, quite sociable and can be very energetic. They require a lot of attention and can become bored. Because they are intelligent animals they can be easily trained.. Rabbits can learn to recognize their name and to even come when called, especially if they know snuggling will be involved. But unlike cats and small dogs, rabbits have a natural fear of being picked up and handled and need time to adjust and become socialized. Digger has been handled in his previous home and would love to find a new home where he will get the attention he deserves.


Hi there! My name is Max I am addicted to my daddy. When he leaves the house I can hardly stand to breath (shown here). I live on a corner next to the park so I am quite the socialite of the neighborhood . Everyone stops by to say hi daily . I love long, long walks in the bush and the best part is the burrs in the long ear hairs that just gets my daddy going. I love to tease the cat and play with my cousins in Chelsea. 9dndji]^c`ndjgeZi^hXjiZZcdj\]idWZÆI=:E:ID;I=:L::@Ç4HjWb^iVe^XijgZVcYh]dgi W^d\gVe]nd[ndjgeZiidÒcYdjiH^beanZbV^aid/X[dhiZg5i]ZcZlhZbX#XVViiZci^dcÆEZid[i]ZLZZ`Ç

He was brought to the shelter as a stray, but is now available for adoption. Billy has been at the shelter since January 27. He is a medium-sized dog at 22 kilograms, but he’s a strong boy who will need a lot of activity and adventure with his new family to keep him happy and healthy. He loves to play with toys and needs owners who will help him learn how to share! Billy would love a home with teens and adults who can take an active role in training. He needs to be enrolled in obedience training before his adoption is finalized.

Having your dog or cat spayed or neutered is not only an essential component of responsible pet ownership, but also an important civic duty as a responsible citizen. The OHS is doing its part by ensuring that cats and dogs adopted from the shelter are spayed and neutered. Please note that the Ottawa Humane Society does not offer spaying or neutering services to the public.

Baguettes start in bread machine EMC lifestyle – If you’ve ever bought a cookbook for bread machines, you’ll know that there are lots of recipes that don’t use the machine for the entire bread-making process. While it starts in the machine, once the dough is ready, it’s taken out of the machine, shaped, then baked in the oven. These are the recipes that are fun to make. If you’ve never worked with dough before, the baguette is a great way to start. This simple shaped loaf is really just a long, thin version of french bread. All you have to do once you take the dough out of the bread machine is roll it, let it rise, then bake it. This recipe for cinnamon raisin baguettes is easy to make. The finished loaves have the chewy texture of a french loaf with the wonderful flavour of cinnamon and raisins. The recipe makes two

EMC news – The City of Ottawa is set to bury hydro lines on Rideau Street this summer, despite recently approving a policy that says the city won’t pay the to remove hydro poles as a standard practice. Rideau will be reconstructed from Dalhousie Street to Chapel Street starting in April, with much of the work set to be done before Canada Day. When it’s done, it will, “look as nice as Preston and Bank (streets),” said Rideau-Vanier Coun. Mathieu Fleury. The work will include widening the sidewalks along much of the street, in some cases by up to 30 per cent. “Sharrows,” or arrows marking shared bicycle and vehicle lanes, will be added, with the goal of making Rideau a more pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly environment, Fleury said. Despite a city policy that says hydro wires can’t be buried underground unless local businesses, developers and residents pay for it, the Rideau project will bury the remaining above-ground hydro wires on the south side of Rideau between King

The next day, the girls resolved to not squander their opportunity as they were facing Ontario #1 ranked Unionville-Milliken. Showing their determination and dedication to defensive play, the girls shut-down their opponents and advanced to the finals with a 1-0 win. Ninety minutes later they were on the field playing for the championship, again against Whitby. In an effort to avenge their earlier loss, the girls came out flying, confident in their knowledge that they were no longer considered the tournament underdog. The girls left it all on the field and despite their disappointment were pleased to be silver medal championship finalists. To allow only three goals-against in five games against the best teams in Ontario is a testament to their dedication to the team game and unselfish play. The girls are anxious for the outdoor season to begin so that that can fully demonstrate their skill on the full field, secure in the knowledge that they are underdogs no longer! Congratulations to Shona, Gabby, Sarah, Gracie, Amelia, Annie, Jodie, Gillian, Anna, Micha, Vicki, Coach Mike, Coach Shawn, Tournament Manager Denise, and Trainer Cathy.

The last game of the day was against the newly constituted, Whitby squad. Despite the obvious physical disadvantage and the challenge of playing against a full, well-rested bench, the girls continued to display their soccer skill and tactical play. With the play going back and forth, neither team’s defense were providing the opposition with many scoring opportunities, until a high bouncing ball resulted in a goal-against late in the game and the girls taking a 1-0 loss. After group play, the Force were tied with Stony Creek Saltfleet. However, the girls benefited from an OSA mandated tie-break rule that saw them advance to the semi-finals.

Rideau Street to get wider sidewalks, ‘sharrow’ lanes for sharing

This past weekend, a group of girls from the 99 Force Black squad, won silver at the Ontario Indoor U13 Provincial Championships. Their first game was against the Richmond Hill Raiders, who finished second in their preliminary round. The Force came out flying and quickly went ahead 1-0. Not content to sit back, the girls continued to pressure and dominated in the offensive zone, which lead to many quality chances but only one additional goal. Final score 2-0. Next up was Stony Creek Saltfleet, the winner of their preliminary round and a team that defeated the Force two years ago at the Robbie International tournament. Final score 1-1.



lightly-floured surface, shaping it into a loaf about 12 inches long and about two inches high. Try to keep it the same thickness throughout. Set this loaf on a greased baking sheet, leaving room beside it for the next one. With a sharp knife, make three or four diagonal cuts in the top of the loaf about 1/4inch deep. Repeat the shaping and cutting with the second portion of dough, then set it on the baking sheet too. Cover the loaves with a damp tea towel, and let them rise for about 30 minutes, or until they have doubled in height. Once the dough has risen, remove the cloth. Stir the egg yolk and water in a small cup, mixing them well, then brush each loaf with this egg glaze. Bake at 375 F for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm, or cool on a rack before freezing. Makes two loaves.

Edward and Wurtemburg. It’s a special case, Fleury said. In that area, the sidewalk must be narrowed slightly, meaning the hydro poles have to be moved or else they would be on the street. The poles can’t be relocated further into the sidewalk because there wouldn’t be enough room for sidewalk snow plows to get through, so the only solution left is to remove the poles altogether, he said. The project could also mean some changes to troublesome intersections along Rideau, as recommended in the Rideau area transportation network study, Fleury said. The most major of those changes could be adding two-way traffic to Cumberland between George and Rideau, which would provide another exit from the Byward Market. That could also include the addition of a cycling lane south of Rideau to allow cyclists to safely exit the Byward market area via Cumberland. TURNING-LANE TURMOIL

Where possible, the city will trade left-turn lanes for wider sidewalks, but

that’s not the case at Nelson Street – a situation that has local community associations upset. Transportation engineers have the final say, and they decided the left-turn lane northbound off Rideau Street will still be needed, so sidewalks in that section cannot be widened. But John Verbaas, who deals with transportation issues for community group Action Sandy Hill, said an engineer’s report supports the community’s preference to lose the turning lane at Nelson in favour of wider sidewalks. Wider sidewalks are an important building block to create a more welcoming area for pedestrians, Verbaas said, adding that attracts new businesses and improves street life along that beleaguered section of Rideau,. During construction, one lane in each direction is planned to be open at all times during construction. Both buses and vehicles would share the lane. The remainder of the Rideau Street reconstruction project, between Chapel and the Cummings Bridge, should be completed by the end of the summer of 2013.

EMC news – A difference of opinion over an Ontario Municipal Board ruling could force the city to add another 163 hectares to the urban boundary. The city has already been ordered to add 850 hectares to the developable area on the city’s outskirts, and it has been locked in OMB hearings for a couple of years as developers appeal the process by trying to have more area added inside the boundary. On Feb. 8, a realization during the latest OMB hearing sent city lawyers scrambling. The issue, said Stittsville Coun. Shad Qadri, is that the city’s lawyers and the OMB have different interpretations of the last ruling. The city’s lawyers thought the 850 hectares included 163 hectares of land between Stittsville and Kanata that the city already planned to allow to be developed. The problem is that the OMB member who made the ruling thought otherwise. Norman Jackson, an OMB member who was part of the decision that ordered

the 850-hectare expansion, assumed what they’ve done is made it more than the Stittsville/Kanata lands would be 850 hectares by their interpretation.” added on top of the 163 hectares the city The OMB would have full authority planned to include anyway. to decide how much and which lands to The revelation means the OMB could add. decide to require the city to expand the “It’s entirely in their hands,” Wilkinurban boundary by an extra 163 hect- son said. “They could decide someplace ares, Qadri said. totally different.
